Sheriff Sam St. John said a Walmart associ ate discovered the razor blade while bringing carts inside the store from the parking lot. St. John said the razor blade was attached to the handle with a magnet. No one was injured. Everyone should do a quick visual of the cart before grabbing one, St. John said. He added people should look at carts at all stores, not just at Walmart. Its disturbing that someone might try to in jure a customer or associ ate, and were grateful no one was seriously hurt, a Walmart spokesperson said. Weve checked all shopping carts and will be conducting regular checks. We will also review footage and will continue to work with police to nd the person responsible. According to Walmart, this is not the rst time a razor blade has been found on shopping carts but it is common for shoplifters to place them there to use to cut off se curity tags.

what we do, we allow them to affect our future good or bad. For example, if you are struggling with lowering your blood pressure, who should you ask for advice? A person that has been able to lower their blood pressure through lifestyle changes or someone who is taking stronger and stron ger blood pressure medication to control it? Your answer should be the person who was able to lower it through lifestyle changes. Why? They understand your struggle and the effort you will need to reach your goal of lowering your blood pressure. The other person continues to struggle with the problem. We need to sur round ourselves with people who motivate and encourage us to be better today than we were yesterday no matter what goal we are working toward. Back to the mind-body connection. If you are around people who have a negative opinion or attitude regarding something you want to do, its a good possibility you will take on that attitude. After all, we tend to act and think the same way as those around us. So how do we break this WEDNESDAY, MARCH 7, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 3A T ravis Henr y, AAMS Financial Advisor 123 Howard Street Liv e Oak, FL 32064 386-364-1657 tra vis .henr y@edw ardjones .com www .edw ardjones .com Make Sure You Choose the Right Financial Professional rfntbtr rttfntt FINANCIAL FOCUS tbbrtrttt trtrtbrt ttrtrt tbtttrttt ttbtrt rrtttt ttttttt rrtt tbttttt tttrtt tbrtt rtt t tttttrt tbtrt tttr tbrtbtbrt ttttt rrt rttrtt tttrtbtrtt trtrtr btttrt tttttrt tttbrttttrt tbtttt tbrttt tbttrtttbtbtt btrtt trtrrt rtrtb tttrt tttrt ttrtrtbrt trttt rtrttbt trtrtbrt ttttrrtt tttrttt tbtttbt trttttt rtttbtb ttttbrt ttr rttt trttrtrtt rttrt tttrrtbtt rtrtt rrtrtt ttttrtt tbtrtttb ttrt ttrttt tttbtttt ttttbtttrt ttrtt rtrttr rtrtttt tbtbtrt rttbtt tbttrtrttt btbt SUWANNEE RIVER READINGS Branford 2018The water levels provided here refer to the height at the US Hwy. 27 bridge in Branford in feet above mean sea level (ft-msl) at the gauging station.

Before that article, I wrote if you think you cant, youre right. Both of these articles were about the mind-body connection and how what we think affects what we do. Fast forward a few years, and the book I am reading now is called The Power of Neuroplasticity, written by Shad Helm stetter Ph. D. It was recommended reading by a Christian woman I follow on social media. All I can say is WOW. I am rough ly 50 percent through as I write this weeks article and it has reminded me again how important the mind-body connection is. We often forget that everyone has an opinion and many times that opinion affects how we think and feel about our selves. Quite often we ask for someones opinion regarding what we should do or what decision we should make. And what do we get? THEIR opinion. Their opinion mirrors how THEY feel about the topic not necessarily what is in our best interest. When we let anothers opinion determine pattern? By becoming aware of it. The rst time I was asked to speak at an event many years ago, I think every other word out of my mouth was like. I didnt even real ize I was doing it until watching a video playback, VIDEO IN THE VCR (thats a ashback). When I heard how often I used the ller word like, I cringed. What did I do about it? I made a conscious effort to be aware of using that word whenever I talked to anyone. Being conscious of it, allowed me to pause, stop speaking, take a breath and remove the word from my sentence. As I did with breaking the habit of using the ller word like,you will use the same process for any habit you want to break or goal you want to reach. First, you need to be aware of it then you need to set the intention to propel you forward to reaching it. What goal do you want to reach or habit do you want to break? First thing in the morning no matter what else is going on, stop. Think of that habit you want to break or goal you want to reach. Throughout the day, when making decisions ask yourself if your choice will get you closer to or far ther from reaching the goal that you set that morning. If the an swer is closer, you are on the right track. Dont let anything or anyone stop you from reaching your goals. At the end of the day, the only opin ions that matter are Gods and our own. You GOT this! Have a great week. Have a great week!

Ms. Smith goes to Tallahassee Suwannee County youth attends 4-H Day at the Capitol Bright and early on Thursday, Feb. 22, 10-year-old Nevaeh Smith was woken up by her 4-H Club Leader, Ms. Yvonne Scott, telling her that the bus to Tallahassee was coming earlier than expected and they needed to get to the Busy Bee quick! Getting ready as quickly as she could, Nevaeh and Ms. Yvonne made it to the bus just in time to ride to 4-H Day at the Capitol. According to orida4h.org, the 4-H Day at the Capitol Program provides youth with an opportunity to learn more about their state government and expe rience the political process rst hand. 4-H members are highly encouraged to make an appointment with their repre sentative, senator, or a legislative aide to talk about how the Florida 4-H Program has impacted their lives. During the day, participants are able to hear from pub lic ofcials, participate in educational workshops, and see their legislators in action. This year, more than 800 4-H par ticipants from across the entire state of Florida made their way to Tallahassee to show lawmakers what positive youth development programming from 4-H means to them. While a total of four youth and one adult from Suwannee were present, this was a particularly spe cial time for Nevaeh and Ms. Yvonne; as it was their rst time attending. According to Nevaeh, she felt shy and nervous going into it, but by the end she felt comfortable being able to express herself and let policymakers know how she felt. Her favorite part of the event was that youth were given the time and space to express themselves to those in charge. Nevaeh also said that she de nitely plans to go again and wants more Suwannee youth to go with her. If you would like to join Nevaeh next year, make sure to join 4-H and be on the lookout for registration infor mation coming up near the end of 2018. You can also call the UF/ IFAS Extension Ofce in Suwan nee County at 386-362-2771. S.

I heard that a brewery had opened in Columbia County recently, so I decided to ride over to Lake City and check it out. I was under the impres sion that the brewery was in an ex panded portion of the Marion Street Bistro and Brew House, but my mistake was a fortunate one. Once we got our table on Friday night, we asked the waitress about the brew ery. She told us the new brewery was around the corner and that they do not serve full meals there. We had a good meal at Marion Street Bistro and were treated to live music by Kellen Vincent as we were nishing our chicken and wafes with a side of oysters. Kellen told the crowd that he won his way into the Suwannee River Jam this year, and after listening to him play a few songs it was easy to believe. I really enjoyed his renditions of Hey Ho by the Lu mineers and Im Yours by Jason Mraz. Considering the news lately, I think the entire restaurant was glad he played Dont Worry, Be Happy. After dinner, we walked around the block and found the Halpatter Brewing Company. We entered the down stairs part of the brewery through some garage doors, and there was a short line in front of the bar with a long row of taps behind the bar. Above the taps was an enor mous screen that listed the 16 choices of beer, ale, cider and stout. Six of the 16 choices were made in Lake City. None of the choices are what I would call cheap; so if you feel the price of Bud Light has gotten ridiculous late ly, you probably would not think the trip to Halpatter was a wise choice. The food choices were things like chips and salsa or a soft, warm pretzel, so I was glad we had already eaten. I decided to try the Pineapple Cider from a company called Ace because I have never even heard of pineapple cider before. It was so sweet and delicious. I took my glass outside and stood by the re for a bit. There were a couple of re pits and a couple of corn hole games going on. Thankfully, no one threw one of the game bags into the re while we were there. We went upstairs to check out that part of the brewery. There was a large wooden deck outside and several tall tables inside next to the bar and many taps that also had a large screen above them like downstairs. There was also an adjacent room where an intense game of ping pong was taking place. Upstairs there were also 16 beverage choices and very few were repeats from what was avail able downstairs. I decided to try one of the local brews this time. The Cookies and Cream stout from Halpatter was the best stout I have ever tasted. I usually dont like stout beer, but I could get used to drinking a glass of Cookies and Cream after dinner. There was some construction still going on, so maybe one day soon you will be able to get a full meal along with an incredible beer, ale, cider and stout selection. I think it is great that there are delicious beverages made right here in our neck of the woods. The Halpatter Brew ing Company is located near the corner of NE Hamilton Street and NE Hernando Avenue in downtown Lake City. Eric lives in Suwannee County and is a public school educator.

Opinion SERVING SUWANNEE COUNTY SINCE 1884 A PAGE 6 rfrfnftrbfbf ftfrrbfbf The freshest beer around Before we discuss violence with guns, Id like to run a couple of questions by you. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Pre vention, every day nearly 30 Ameri cans die in motor vehicle crashes that involve drunk driving. What kind of restrictions should be placed on au tomobile ownership? Should there be federal background checks in order for people to obtain a drivers license or purchase a car? The FBIs 2015 Uniform Crime Report shows that nearly three times more people were stabbed or hacked to death than were killed with shotguns and ries combined. The number of shotgun and rie deaths totaled 548. People who were stabbed or hacked to death totaled 1,573. Should there be federal background checks and waiting periods for knife purchases? Any mature and reasonable person would argue that it is utter nonsense to deal with drunk driving deaths and knife deaths by having federal background checks and waiting periods to obtain a drivers license or to purchase a car or knife. One would recognize, just as courts and the general public do, that cars and knives are inanimate objects and cannot act on their own. Therefore, if we want to do something about deaths resulting from drunk driving or being stabbed or hacked to death, we must fo cus on individuals. It would be folly and gross negligence of victims for us to focus on inanimate objects like cars and knives. Guns are also inanimate objects and like cars and knives cannot act on their own. Its also plain folly to focus on guns in the cases of shooting deaths. What about the availability of guns? It turns out that for most of our history, a person could walk into hard ware and department stores or a gun store, virtually any where in the United States, and purchase a rie or pistol. The 1902 Sears mail-order catalog had 35 pages of re arm advertisements. Other catalogs and magazines from the 1940s, s and s were full of gun advertisements directed to both youngsters and parents. What Every Parent Should Know When a Boy or Girl Wants a Gun was published by the National Shooting Sports Founda tion. Another magazine advertised Get This Cowboy Carbine with Your Christmas Money. Just a few states even had age restrictions for buying guns. Private trans fers of guns to juveniles were unrestricted. Often a 12th or 14th birthday present, from a father to his son, was a shiny new .22 caliber rie. Today, there is far less availability of shotguns, ries and pistols than any time in our history. That historical fact should raise the question: Despite the greater acces sibility to guns in previous decades, why wasnt there the kind of violence we see with todays far more restricted access to guns? Have ries and pistols changed their be havior from yesteryear and they are now out committing mayhem and evil? To answer in the afrmative can be dismissed as pure lunacy. Thus, if guns havent changed, then it must be that people have changed. Half-witted psychobabble such as stopping children from playing schoolyard games like cops n robbers and cowboys n Indians wont do much. Calling for more gun restrictions, gun-free zones and other measures have been for naught. We must own up to the fact that laws and regulations alone cannot produce a civilized society. Morality is so cietys rst line of defense against uncivilized behavior. Moral standards of conduct have been under siege in our country for over a half a century. Moral absolutes have been abandoned as guiding principles. Weve been taught not to be judgmental, that one lifestyle or set of values is just as good as another. We no longer hold people ac countable for their behavior and we accept excuse-mak ing. Problems of murder, mayhem and other forms of anti-social behavior will continue until we regain our moral footing. Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University.

For more than a week, it seems like every time one looks around there has been another wreck somewhere in the county. As of Sunday, since Saturday, Feb. 24, there had been 16 crashes on Suwannee County roads. Nine of those included injuries. One in the early morning hours Sunday was fatal. That followed a deadly accident the weekend before in Hamilton County. Trafc accidents, a number involving just one vehicle, have taken a toll. Lives lost. Others seri ously wounded. Families have been shattered. We need to keep that in mind as we get behind the wheel. Every action we take has an affect on others, even those we dont realize. So we must pay closer attention. Ignore the phone call and, especially, the text. Avoid the distraction of trying to nd a better song on the radio. Keep our eyes peeled and on the road. Watch for trafc signs and incoming trafc. Be more cautious about making turns. Try not to rush to beat a stop light. Slow down, period. Rather than being in a hurry to get somewhere, anywhere, lets instead make sure that we just reach that destination. In the rst two months of the year, more than 100 times people did not while driving on Suwan nee County roadways. Thats right in the middle of the totals from the previous two years. Its average. Its also a little staggering. Its more than two crashes per day. And spring break and summer vacation travel season hasnt even arrived yet. The past two years have ended with more than one fatality per month and more than one injury in a crash per day. Lets do our part in lowering that this year. Lets try for being below average. Lets aim for being safe and sound. Please drive safely on roadways

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 7, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 7A Nation rfntrrrfbbbb r fn Raycom News Network Editors Note This is the rst of three-part series on ways doctors, regulators and drug com panies contribute to the nations opioid addiction epidemic. LEWISBURG, Tenn. Shortly after Dr. Mark A. Murphy, a top opioid pre scriber in the U.S., started practicing here three days a week last year, the clinic owners asked a police detective to meet for dinner. Lewisburg Police Lt. Tom Miller thought the request seemed like a preemp tive strike to keep the cops away from the Specialty Associates clinic. They wanted to stress with me they werent doing anything wrong, said Miller, who served as a drug task force commander for 18 years before joining the Lewisburg force. But Millers suspicions of the doctor were already amplied. He knew Murphy had been the No. 1 opioid prescriber in the federal Medicare program for years; that he closed his practices in Alabama when that states medical board accused him of writing excessive opioid prescriptions. He also knew that many of Murphys patients were driving far distances to see him: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisi ana and Mississippi. That led Miller and Lewisburg Police Chief David L. Henley to conclude Mur phys practice had all the tell-tale signs of a pill mill. That clinic, with that many license tags from out of state, is not right, said Hen ley. That type of activity, I dont want in my town. Murphy declined repeated requests for an interview. A woman on his staff shooed a reporter out of the clinic parking lot, stating: We dont need any TV (ex pletive) going on. Weak oversight Despite law enforcement crackdowns and new federal guidelines and state laws to limit the number of opioids given to patients, some of the highest prescribers have avoided scrutiny, a Raycom Media national investigation found. The top 1,000 highest prescribers in the Medicare Part D program, which provides drug benets to the elderly and disabled, collectively wrote 14.6 million prescrip tions between 2013 and 2015, public re cords show. Some wrote prescriptions for so many opioids that the patients daily supply of the pain-killing medication exceeded, on average, the number of days in a year. Murphy gave 1,100 of his Medicare pa tients opioids that, if taken as prescribed, would have lasted each of them 497 days in 2015. Medicare covers at least one out of ev ery four prescriptions written in the U.S. But some medical and law enforcement experts say: being a top prescriber in the Medicare program should raise red ags. Murphy wrote more prescriptions between 2013 and 2015 than anyone else in the U.S., the Medicare data shows. The doctors who top the list one has to question whether they are drug dealers in white coats, said Andrew Kolodny, co-director of the Opioid Policy Research Collaborative at Brandeis University. If youre prescribing that aggressively, you are killing patients. Its been well documented that doctors were deceived by the pharmaceutical industry about the addictive nature of opi oids and began changing their prescrib ing habits about a decade ago. Overall, last year they wrote 17 percent fewer opi oid prescriptions than in 2012, according to the American Medical Society. Yet 70 percent of Medicares top 1,000 prescribers increased the number of opioid prescriptions they wrote between 2013 and 2015. Raycom Media sent letters to each of the top 1,000 prescribers; 44 responded as of Feb. 14. Many said that they are prescribing appropriately to patients who need opioids because of severe medical problems. Others threatened legal action if their names were made public. A few said that they now prescribe fewer opioids because of new federal guidelines that, among other things, push for alternatives to painkillers. There exist patients who genuinely are suffering and who justiably need medi cations. We make every effort to separate those from others who are seeking medi cations for other uses, wrote Dr. William Megdal, a spine specialist in Athens, Ga. We are totally aware of the opioid crisis and have implemented caution to avoid being a part of the problem. And, the problem is huge. Four million peo ple are addicted to prescription drugs, said Stephen G. Az zam, special agent in charge of U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency operations in Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. The doctor needs to open his eyes. Why do you still need that prescrip tion? As opioid drug makers and distributors have found themselves in the crosshairs of cities and states ravished by the opioid epidemic, doctors and other prescribers largely avoid scrutiny by state and federal regulators, Raycoms investigation found. A deep dive into the backgrounds of Medicares top 1,000 opioid prescribers found that few have faced discipline for prescribing drugs that the Centers for Dis ease Control and Prevention says should be restricted to cancer patients, those who had surgery or were involved in a serious accident and some with chronic pain. In the past two decades, 98 prescribers have been sanctioned for inappropriately prescribing medicine; 22 are facing crimi nal charges or have been convicted. But 49 of the prescribers with check ered pasts including Murphy have licenses that allow them to practice as of Feb. 14. The Medicare data, state medical board records, and court documents show that: years as regulators build investigations. doctors second chances. tions into doctors conduct, allowing them to move their practices to other states. Opioid hot spots The data also shows the highest volume prescribers are practicing in the south and not in the states typically associated with the opioid crisis such as Kentucky, Ohio and West Virginia. More than half of the highest prescrib ers are practicing in nine southern states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. Alabama had more than twice as many health-care providers on the list than Ohio, a state with nearly three times as many residents. Mississippi, a state with only 3 million residents, has 23 prescribers on the list. Pennsylvania, with a population of nearly 13 million, had just 24. In Mississippi, there were enough opi oid prescriptions lled last year to give everyone in the state a bottle of 70 pills, said John Dowdy, director of the Missis sippi Bureau of Narcotics and a former assistant U.S. Attorney General. We have an ad dicted state because of over-prescribing, Dowdy said. I knew that with us having that kind of prescribing rates, we were going down the same paths as Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia. Nearly 12 percent of everyone in the U.S. recorded as having died of prescription opioid overdoses between 2013 and 2015 came from those three states, according to Kaiser Family Foundation. The highest opioid-prescribing volumes shifted into southeastern states in recent years. You have legal drugs coming from doctors, Dowdy said. The vast majority of our medical doctors are good doctors. I wish there was an easier way for us to identify the bad doctors. State medical board records show some states are ramping up scrutiny of doctors who are top prescribers. Michigan, for example, in 2016 and 2017 suspended or revoked the licenses of four doctors who were top prescribers there. Basing conclusions on prescription data can be dangerous because it overlooks the histories of chron ic-pain sufferers who truly may need the drugs, said Dr. Stefan Kertesz, a professor of medicine at the Uni versity of Alabama at Birmingham School of Medicine and specialist in addiction and opioid safety. Even so, he said, doctors bear a great deal of responsibility for the opioid crisis. Physicians ooded the market with opioid prescriptions in ways that proved unhelpful, he said. There was a conspic uous lack of caution, care and a great deal of optimistic feelings by physicians. How addiction happens Terah Holleys family called the U.S. Drug and Enforcement Agency after her death in 2014 with one request: put Dr. Howard Diamond out of business. Holley, a 39-year-old mother of three from northern Texas, died of an overdose after ingesting a lethal amount of mor phine that Diamond prescribed for her 10 days earlier. The familys call triggered a lengthy investigation that ended with Diamonds arrest last summer on 18 counts of healthcare fraud, conspiracy and distributing controlled drugs. Diamonds downfall came nearly three years to the day since Holley died. During that time, Diamond continued to practice medicine at his two clinics in small towns in northern Texas and prescribed so many opioids that he was among the top 25 Medicare prescribers in the country. At least 19 of his patients died as inves tigators built their criminal case, accord ing to federal court records. But there were missed opportunities to sideline Diamond, state and federal re cords show. Health insurance companies sent some 100 letters to Diamond expressing con cerns he was prescribing excessive doses and toxic combinations of opioids. But those companies did not alert the Texas Medical Board. In 2015, a pharmacist complained to the board about the prescriptions Diamond was writing. The medical board ordered him to take an 8-hour class on medical re cordkeeping, state records show. Diamond kept on practicing. I dont know what took so long, said Holleys daughter, Allyson. Well get closure when something happens to the doctor. Investigating a doctor is difcult and can take a long time because they have the medical expertise that investigators lack, said Miller, the former Tennessee drug task force commander. They know they can do the bare min imum touch your wrist, ask you a few questions and make their assumption on how to treat you, he said. Its hard to challenge a doctor. As far as her family was concerned, Terah Holley died long before she ingest ed a deadly amount of morphine on July 25, 2014. She didnt function at all. She was a living zombie, her daughter Allyson said. Holley was involved in a car crash in 2001 that left her with nerve damage. ttbttbt ttbttt fbnbtbb tt SEE DOCTORS, PAGE 8A rrf f nft f fb f b f n

After a sleep study in 2012, a doctor referred her to Diamond, who immediately prescribed opioids. Over the three years that Diamond treated Holley, she received prescriptions for hydrocodone, oxy codone, Zantac, Lortab and morphine, Allyson said. The woman who had been a free spirit willing to try or do anything suddenly was falling asleep in her food at dinner, her family said. She also lost her jobs. Allyson once accompanied her mother to an appointment with Diamond. After a 10-minute visit, she left with new opioid prescriptions. I feel like the doctor took her life away, Allyson said. She was just 16 when her mom died. I quit school for a little while. It took a toll on me, she said. I shouldnt have to go through that at 16. Sometimes I want to pick up the phone and call my mom. Diamond, meanwhile, remains in jail awaiting trial. Second chance For six years, Dr. Raymond Kraynak fought the Pennsylvania Board of Os teopathic Medicine over allegations he prescribed an excessive amount of hab it-forming diet pills. The family-practice doctor owned two clinics in small towns about 90 minutes northwest of Philadelphia. He was a local school board member, who once caused a stir when he was arrested for drunken driving. In 2012, Kraynak and the medical board came to an agreement to settle the case against him: he would pay a fine and take a course on controlled substances management. Soon after, oxycodone became Kray naks drug of choice, writing prescrip tions for more than 3.6 million pills in less than three years. At least five of his patients have since died of a prescription opioid overdose. Among Medicares top prescribers, at least 19 had at least one brush with their state licensing boards for prescrib ing-related problems and were given second and third chances. George Loucas, a Cleveland lawyer who also is a pharmacist, said state medical boards havent done enough to stop doctors. I have no idea where they have been the past 10 years, Loucas said. Im aware of more than one doctor who killed seven or eight patients and they are still practicing today. He has sued dozens of doctors whose patients died of an opioid prescription overdose and won settlements for the Continued From Page 7A victims families. But the doctors in those cases have not been sanctioned by their state boards. Among Medicares highest pre scribers who have been disciplined for wrongdoing by state medical boards for prescribing-related issues, 53 still have licenses that allow them to practice. A dozen of them, including Kraynak, eventually faced additional allegations of over-prescribing that led to suspen sions or revocations of their licenses. Days before Christmas, federal agents arrested Kraynak and charged him in the overdose deaths of five patients as well as other drug-related violations. The doctors prescribing habits shocked investigators. The sheer number of pills prescribed in this case is staggering, U.S. Attor ney David J. Freed said on Dec. 21, the day Kraynak was arrested at his office in Mount Carmel, PA. Death or serious injury was the inevitable result of this... conduct. Crossing state lines Before he left Ala bama for Lewisburg, Tennessee, Dr. Mark Murphys ability to practice medicine was in jeopardy. The Alabama Board of Medical Examiners had levied an 8-count complaint against him in August 2016 for: cal purposes. and competency. The 33-page complaint detailed Mur phys questionable care of 15 patients. One was a 58-year-old man who over dosed on a dangerous combination of opioids and other drugs prescribed by Murphy. Several other patients said they received opioids even though they had documented substance abuse issues. In some cases, Murphy increased the doses. The committee that investigated Mur phy had grave concerns about him and recommended that the board revoke his medical license. But that didnt happen. Instead, the board allowed his license to practice in Alabama expire at the end of 2016 and dismissed the case two months later. That left Murphys repu tation unscathed by formal disciplinary actions. Other top opioid prescribers in the Medicare Part D program also have been allowed to leave a state under a cloud of suspicion. In Arkansas, Dr. Mahmood Ahmad, who ran a pain clinic, faced serious ac cusations of excessive prescribing from state medical board officials. The board considered suspending his medical license but then backed off after Ahmad agreed in 2015 to pay a $20,000 fine. Soon after, he was practicing near Anchorage, Alaska, and almost immedi ately under investigation there. State medical officials launched an investigation, which resulted in formal, administrative charges against him 14 months after he opened his clinic in a strip shopping center. Though he worked in the state only one weekend a month, one pharmacist told investigations that she turned away 18 of his patients in a single morning. Each arrived with prescriptions for such high-dose opioids that Costco didnt even stock it. Within 17 months of arriving in Alas ka, the state medical board revoked his license. That action prompted Arkansas to act, too. It revoked Ahmads license two months later four years after it first looked into his prescribing prac tices. Ahmad could not be reached for comment and is believed to now be liv ing in Pakistan, said a lawyer who has filed a civil suit against him. Procedures and databases exist to prevent disciplined doctors from qui etly slipping from state to state. But in the case of Murphy and Ahmad the tepid actions of the medical boards did not prevent the doctors from moving elsewhere. Murphy had long held a license to practice medicine in Tennessee, where he lives. The Tennessee state medical board hasnt filed an administrative complaint against him, the only public way to know if a doctor is under investigation. But the Tennessee Bureau of Investi gations knows of Murphy. Lewisburg police Lt. Tom Miller made sure of it. Investigative producer Tom Wright and News Content Specialist Erin Sno dgrass contributed to this report. rfntbfr fnfnfffnf rrf f r f nfn fnfn ffrfnnfnn frnf nf

Final Jam audition set for Saturday rfn LAKE CITY For the seventh consecutive semes ter, more than 2 years, Florida Gateway College is reporting an increase in student enrollment. According to preliminary estimates, FGC increased enrollment by 6.3 percent for the 2017-2018 academ ic year and for the past 2 years has increased a total of 18 percent. The Florida College System saw a net growth in full-time equivalent (FTE) enrollment of just 0.3 per cent across the 28 member colleges for the 2017-2018 academic year. FTE is a measure of the total number of credit hours being taken at the college divided by the number of hours required for a student to be consid ered full-time. Several initiatives at FGC have contributed to the increase, including the availability of late-start course options, improved student engagement and a push by administrators for full-time students to take 15 credit-hours per semester. The college has also made it a campus-wide priority to expand course offerings and programs and to retain students. In addition to these ini tiatives, we have re-exam ined our enrollment process for current and future FGC students, said Dr. Jennifer Price, Vice President of Enrollment Management and Student Affairs. It was important for us to create a more streamlined process by improving com munication and eliminating obstacles. r BRANFORD Foren sic botany will be the top ic of Tuesdays meeting of the Sparkleberry Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society.

Sports SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK WEDNESDAY, MARCH 7, 2018 Kelley pitches Branford past Lafayette michael.jones@ganews.com BRANFORD When Dylan Kelley is commanding the strike zone, Bran fords tall, right-handed pitcher can be tough to hit. Kelley had good control on Friday, pitching six strong innings in the Bucca neers 8-1 win against Lafayette. Kelley, sticking mostly to a mid-80s fastball with plenty of movement, took a no-hitter into the sixth inning. Dylan Mock broke up the no-hit bid with a triple to right center, and Lafayettes next batter, Caleb Land, brought in Mock with an RBI double to spoil the shutout. Still, Kelley nished an efcient and dominating performance with ve strikeouts on 93 pitches. And that was after bruising his knee in the fourth in ning on a slide into home plate. Dylan pitched his heart out, said BHS coach Alex OQuinn. He hurt his leg on the slide into home, but he fought through it. It was his decision, he wanted to go back out there. He got ahead of a lot of batters and pitched really well. Branford gave Kelley all the run support he needed with a two-run rst inning. The Buccaneers got their rst run on a Trey Sapp RBI groundout that scored Cameron Noling. Then with two outs and runners on rst and third, Rylee McKenzie at tempted to steal second base. He got caught in a rundown, but managed to stay in that rundown long enough for Tyler Sapp to come in and score the second run. We scored early, OQuinn said. That sets the tone for the game and ev erybody was hitting the ball. BHS put ve runs on the board in the fourth inning to increase its lead to 7-0. The big inning was highlighted by Kel leys RBI double and a clutch, two-out hit from Tyler Whiteld. Whiteld, who went 2-2 on the night, drove a low-and-away pitch for a single to right eld to score Clay Williams and Seth Heiderman. Youll have games like this, said Hornets coach Tim Hanson, whose team made crucial errors in the rst and fourth inning. We gave away stuff early that might change the momentum of the game. Well gure it out. Heiderman and McKenzie both notched two hits for Branford (4-1). UP NEXT: The Buccaneers have won three straight games and are a perfect 3-0 in district play. They are back in ac tion Thursday at Chieand.

SCC, which trailed 17.512.5 after the rst round at QCC, took 27 of 30 points on Sunday to win the two-day event by a score of 39.5-20.5. Suwannees experience on the beautiful and tricky greens at SCC prevailed to complete the amazing come back. Congrats to all the team members for another fantastic win. SCC remains undefeated in four years with head to head matchups with Quitman CC, Madison CC, and Quail Heights CC. They will face off with QHCC in April. bfttnfftbttnbfnfftbftfn KISSIMMEE Suwannee freshman Xander Kirkland (106-pound weight class) nished in sixth place at the FHSAA State Wrestling Cham pionships last weekend in Kis simmee. Kirkland won his rst match by pin in 1:39 to advance to the quarternals. In his second match, Kirkland lost an 8-1 decision to Chase Gillis. (Gil lis went on to a fourth-place nish). Kirkland defeated David Rodriguez by pin after 2:11 in his next match. Kirkland then beat Darrell Page by an 8-7 de cision, but an injury ended the tournament for Kirkland. Kirk land went 3-1 in the matches he was able to wrestle, and ended the tournament with a 3-3 mark and the sixth-place nish. Chase Clark (126 pounds) and Terrell Williams (152 pounds) both fell in their open ing matches and nished with a record of 2-2. Freshman Tim othy Jolicouer (113 pounds) was 0-2. Kirkland places sixth at state wrestling championships Eagles best Bulldogs 10-3 michael.jones@ganews.com LIVE OAK A highly-an ticipated pitching matchup be tween Suwannees Bo Bonds and North Florida Christians Brandon Walker turned one-sided in favor of Walker and the Eagles. After a tough first inning, Walker found his rhythm on the mound, and also came through at the plate, to lead NFC to a 10-3 victory on Thursday. Walker struck out six hitters in four innings pitched and gave up one run. Offensively, he went 2-5 with a home run and five RBIs. Bonds breezed through the first inning, striking out the side on just 12 pitches. But control problems and a threerun homer from Matthew Dickey cut his day short as Bonds exited after three in nings with the Bulldogs trail ing 4-1. The two home runs gave them a little life, said Su wannee coach Justin Bruce. When the big plays hap pened, the momentum switched and they settled in on the mound. Thats one thing we have to do better not give them a chance to settle in. Hueston Morrill led off the game with a double as he hit a high curveball to the wall in left field. Bonds, hitting third in the lineup, drove in Morrill with a sacrifice fly to put SHS ahead 1-0 in the first inning. It was a good start off Walker, who entered the game without having allowed a run in five innings pitched. When we put pressure on them, we were able to dictate some stuff and we scored an early run, Bruce said. We made him (Walker) work and throw more pitches than he wanted to in that (first) inning. As the game went on, the big plays were the ones that separated us from the energy level it needed to be all the way though. Trailing 8-1 in the sixth, Wyatt Morrill gave Suwannee (2-2) its last runs as he con nected on a two-run homer. UP NEXT: Suwannee trav els to Mayo on Thursday to face Lafayette.

By Kyla Brewer TV Media Like a magician cooking up a potion, concocting a hit television show requires the perfect brew of drama, intrigue and mystery. Adding a dash of excitement, a charismatic star and just a hint of romance can create TV magic, and one promising new series seems to have it all. Jack Cutmore-Scott (Cooper Barretts Guide to Surviving Life) stars as magician Cameron Black, who works for the FBI after his magic career is ruined by scandal, in Deception, premiering Sunday, March 11, on ABC. While his 15 minutes of fame may be over, Blacks skills are uniquely suited to help the government catch elusive criminals as he uses deceive others. The premise may seem far-fetched, but creator and producer Chris Fedak (Chuck) explained the logic behind it during a Q&A panel at 2017s New York Comic Con. So many of the theories of magic also play into criminality, Fedak said. If youre going to rob a bank, if youre going to steal things, you are using that same skill set to trick people and deceive people. Cameron brings his own perspective to many of the cases and the crimes that were going to come across. Fedak and his cohorts have recruited some top talent to make sure the tricks and illusions in Deception ring true. Famed illusionist and crossword expert David Kwong has signed on to co-produce and also serves as a consultant on the series with fellow magician Frances Menotti. Kwong, Menotti and other magic experts have worked extensively with Cutmore-Scott to show him the ropes so hell look convincing. The magicians also design the complex illusions in the show, which, according to Fedak, are as true to life as possible. When we look at each one of our stories, we want to do as much magic thats real that we can, Fedak explained. The other thing we want to do is [ensure] everything that happens inside the story our illusions, our deceptions are all things that can happen in the real world. Producers have also enlisted the help of an FBI consultant to keep the program as accurate as possible. illusionist, Black works alongside no-nonsense FBI agent Kay Daniels (Ilfenesh Hadera, Baywatch, 2017), whos initially skeptical of his techniques. The chemistry between these two delivers a healthy dose of humor, thanks to Blacks sometimes naive antics and Daniels straight-laced reactions. In contrast, her colleague, FBI Agent Mike Alvarez (Amaury Nolasco, Prison Break), is a huge fan of magic and recognizes Black right away. Special Agent Deakins (Laila Robins, Murder in the First) is eventually won over by the disgraced magician as he proves his worth to the FBI, thanks to a little help from his team. Blacks magic team includes makeup artist/ producer Dina Clark (Lenora Crichlow, Being Human) and Jordan Kwon (Justin Chon, Twilight, 2008). Gunter Gustafsen (Vinnie Jones, Escape Plan, 2013) is widely regarded as the worlds greatest illusion builder. They may be new to law enforcement, but the ragtag crew and their fearless leader teach the FBI agents some new tricks. All the while, Black hopes to right the wrongs that have been done to him. The ensemble cast supports a tried-and-true recipe for prime-time success. Deception features a formula thats paid off for broadcast networks in the past several years: a charming male lead (Cutmore-Scott) is paired with a strong-yetexasperated female lead (Hadera). ABCs Castle and CBSs Elementary are just two examples of other recent series that have enjoyed ratings success thanks to similar plots. But theres a show to which Deception bears even more resemblance industry insiders have already been comparing ABCs new magic drama to CBSs highly successful drama The Mentalist (2008-2015), which chronicled the life of disgraced psychic Patrick Jane (Simon Baker, The Guardian) as he solved crimes for the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI) alongside Agent Teresa Lisbon (Robin Tunney, Prison Break). Interestingly, Deception shares a behind-thescenes link with The Mentalist. Emmy-nominated composer Blake Neely, who composed music for The Mentalist, is also the composer for Deception. Not only that, but one of the shows executive producers, David Nutter, directed the pilot episode of The Mentalist. Along with Fedak, Nutters fellow executive producers include Greg Berlanti (Blindspot), Martin Gero (Blindspot) and Sarah Schechter (The Flash). Like The Mentalists subplot involving serial killer Red John, it appears Deception may feature an ongoing plot in addition to the weekly cases. At New York Comic Cons panel, Fedak dropped hints about a mystery woman and her reasons for doing what she does to Black. Details about the nature of Blacks transgressions are sketchy, so audiences will have to watch the new With illusions, humor, explosions and much more, the new drama seems to have something for everyone. Fans of such crime procedurals, magic and action wont want to miss the premiere of Deception, airing Sunday, March 11, on ABC.
