At Tuesdays meeting, Allen admitted that when he voted on the passage of Resolution 18-04, regarding the funding for the Eco nomic Development program, he did not understand it. The resolution states the city will provide $6,250 quarterly to wards the economic development program so long as the ofce is funded by Suwannee County. The resolution adds that quar terly written reports are expected from the county administrator describing details of all economic development activities. This resolution replaces Reso lution 15-1-A, which was the pre vious agreement for the economic development program. According to the original res olution, the city paid $47,028.50 yearly towards the economic de velopment director salary. I thought we were voting to spread out payment out to four quarterly payments instead of one annually, Allen said. That sounded like a great plan to me. Turns out that was not what we were doing.

FRIDAY, MARCH 16, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 3A Remembering Suwannee 58644-1 A.B. Ware expands business opportunities Last week, we began discussing prominent Branford resident and phar macist A.B. Ware. Today, we complete our study. Wares services to the Branford com munity did not stop with his pharmacy. In 1925, he purchased the old saw mill property and used much of it for af fordable housing for the African-Amer ican population, eventually reaching over thirty houses. The area became known as Wares Quarters. One of the houses acquired in the saw mill purchase, after suitable renovations, became the Ware home for twenty-five years. He eventually built a brick home on Plant Avenue, and his old home then became a doctors apartment and office. Ware was elected to the Branford Town Council in 1923, serving until 1944. Among his accomplishments while in public office was to raise mon ey for a wooden water tank to serve the water needs of Branford citizens; until that time, the only water system was one built for saw mill fire purposes. Ware was still on the Town Council when the wooden water tank was re placed by a more modern metal one. Ware was also a long-time trustee of the Branford School. Ware expanded his business dealings by convincing the Florida Motor Lines (later Greyhound) to serve the Branford area. Ware became the agent for the motor line. He also helped to introduce the dial telephone system in Branford, replacing earlier methods of communi cation. In 1947, Ware was honored by Florida pharmacists by being elected president of the Florida Pharmaceu tical Association for the 1947-1948 term. Ware also served as an officer of the Branford State Bank, including as vice-president and as the director. In addition, Ware was a Mason and a member of the American Legion. A.B. and his wife Edith had four children: Bill, twin daughters Edith and Mary Katherine (who are still living as of this articles publica tion), and youngest child Albert B. Ware, Jr. Interestingly, all of the children became associated with pharmacies. A.B. transferred own ership of his pharmacy to his children in March of 1950, but continued in its active operation; it was the oldest busi ness in Branford under the same own ership. Bill Ware eventually purchased his siblings portions and took over management of Wares Pharmacy. Sadly, Albert B. Ware, Jr. lost his life during the Korean Conflict after completing 100 missions. He was on his way to the United Sates for rotation from active duty when his plane went down mid-ocean. He had completed two years of pharmacy school before he had enlisted, and the death of the well-liked man was hard for the entire county. It is stated that for many years, Wares Pharmacy was seen as Santas headquarters by Branford children due to the variety of merchandise available. Every Christmas, Ware would put on a program where he would throw fruit, nickels, and pennies to the children of the community, both for white and African-American kids. At Christmas, A.B. Ware would also shell pecans at the end of the prescription counter and package them in quarter bags for children, family, and friends. During Christmas seasons, folks would ask if he was going to have a merry Christ mas. His reply was something like, For me, Christmas comes every day of the year. When Ware was too old to fill pre scriptions, he would welcome and serve his customers in other ways. His atti tude was that the customer was always right; it showed in his interactions with the community, whom he saw as fam ily. A.B. had a sense of adventure and would take his grandchildren for jeep rides into the woods. After a long life of service to the community, Albert Broadus Ware died on June 18, 1979 at the age of 86. He is buried in the Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens in Lake City. His wife Edith died in 1997 at the age of 96 and was buried beside him. Some of the Ware descendants still live in the Branford area today. More history next week.

This one ranks near the top of most difcult ones I have written, because parenting is the hardest job on the planet and it matters so much that we do this job well. Up front, I want to ask you: please do not read it with one ounce of judgment. If anything hits home with you I pray that you hear it as the voice of one who doesnt always get parenting right either, but is cheering all of us on to a healthier relation ship with our children. Over the past 28 years of parenting and 15-plus years of counseling, I have often encountered heartbroken parents. Parents who love their sons and daughters more than their own lives, but have lacked the ability to promote responsibility and respect through instruction and discipline. As a result, by the time the children hit the teenage years, every one in the house can be very miserable. Most often these parents suffer from an increasing ly common malady that I call Parenting By Guilt. Parenting by Guilt is simply making decisions for your children based on the guilty feeling that you are responsible for their lack of respect, responsibility or their disobedience. Parenting by guilt presents in many situa tions, but here are a few that I have encoun tered: most obvious. Divorce is hard on children, no doubt, but taking away discipline takes away their security and sets them up to blame someone or something else for bad choices the rest of their lives. Allowing disrespect of the other parent may make you feel better, but it is very harmful to your child. Best-case scenario is for divorced parents to continue to co-parent consistently and be emotionally supportive during the difculty of divorce but do not excuse disobedience. may haunt us to the point that we feel hypo critical to correct our own children. King Da vid suffered from this one to the point that his son raped his daughter and one son killed an other while he remained silent. (See 2 Samuel 11 & 13). Think about this: if you were given a supervisors position at your job, would you not correct those who worked for you simply because you had made mistakes in learning the job early on? Our role as parents is not contingent on doing life perfectly. On the contrary, our past mistakes (and what we learned from them) should help us be more insightful parents and help us teach our chil dren all the more. This has become an epidemic in our culture! Grandparents often feel guilty because their children have failed their grandchildren and they may feel an underlying responsibility. Parenting is so hard for grandparents because the role of a grandparent is so different than a parent. If you are a grandparent who has tak en on the challenge of raising a grandson or granddaughter, you must make sure that you switch the role. If a child can only have either a parent or grandparent, the most important need is for a parent. Giving them monetary rewards or too much freedom will not replace what is missing from their lives, but teaching respect and responsibility will help them nav igate those troubled waters. to tread lightly herebut I have seen this struggle. Parents who have much more than their parents did nancially may feel the need to do much more for their children in terms of gifts and privileges. This can be a slippery slope, and one where the parent understands the value of money but the children do not. I have heard it said that if one does not have what it takes to acquire some thing, they likely will not have what it takes to keep it. Dont confuse nancial blessings with parental obligations. Teaching your children to get something for nothing will not serve them well in life, especially if you become unable or unwilling to support their appetites. Responsibility always accompanies privilege. Because as parents, we all want the very best for our children. And every heart mat ters.

Pooles three children were always showing their pigs at the fair and he hates to stand still so he would help the fair board mem bers set up. The rst year Poole was a Friend of the Fair Board but quickly became a mem ber of the board. I love the fair, Poole said. I grew up going to the fair and my kids love the fair. With his children show ing pigs, they are at the fair every day so volunteering gave Poole something to do when his children arent showing. His son, Mason also vol unteers at the fair when he is not showing. Poole said his favorite day of the fair is Senior Citizens Day. I still have all four of my grandparents and three are usually able to attend every year, Poole said. I get to spend the day with them and show them around. They get to see the kids pigs. That is probably my most exciting day of the fair. Poole encourages anyone with free time to consider volunteering. The board members have become a second family to me and I have made some good friend throughout the last ve years, Poole said. rfntbbnnfnrrbnrffff rfbbnbtb frfbbfbtrnft b ffrfbbfb Follow us on Twitter

The service will be at Wellborn Baptist Church, begin ning at 11 a.m. The church is located at 4146 Low Lake Rd. (the intersection of U.S. Hwy. 90 and Low Lake Rd.) in Wellborn, FL. LAKE CITY Motorists traveling Interstate 75 over the next several weeks can expect to see large, digital message signs being installed as part of a $12 million Florida Department of Transportation project. Once completed, the project will assist motorists with current travel information and improve interstate communication for emergency responders. The ITS (Intelligent Transportation System) proj ect began in late 2016 and is currently in its second phase before its expected completion this summer. The project spans from Archer Road (State Road 24) in Alachua County to the Florida/Georgia line. The ITS project involves installing traffic cameras and vehicle detection sensors on the roadway. ITS al lows emergency agencies to utilize enhanced technol ogy to better detect traffic slowdowns and incidents. This information can then be passed along to motor ists through digital message boards installed on the interstate and through the FDOT 511 system. The first digital message sign was installed on southbound Interstate 75 in Columbia County on Monday. The sign displays are approximately eightfeet tall and 25-feet wide. Additional signs are scheduled to be installed in Alachua and Columbia counties in the coming weeks and the project will continue north to the Georgia line until all signs are installed. Once completed, the District 2 ITS system will consist of 101 detectors on an 86-mile stretch of roadway. These sensors will be placed every halfmile in the city of Gainesville and every mile outside of the city limits. There will also be 24 digital mes sage signs 11 northbound and 13 southbound and 95 cameras located on Interstate 75. Additionally, the system will sync up with another project on Interstate 10, which is currently under construction and will run from Interstate 295 in Jacksonville to U.S. 90 in Leon County. Installation of the signs will take place during day time hours and will require a lane closure for crews to safely install the signs.

SEE PROBLEM, PAGE 7A Opinion SERVING SUWANNEE COUNTY SINCE 1884 A PAGE 6 rfrfnftrbfbf ftfrrbfbf FRIDAY, MARCH 16, 2018 rbb CNHI News Service Three excited young women appear strategically for TV shots behind President Donald Trump at the podium as he addresses a fervid campaign rally in an airport hangar outside Pittsburgh Saturday. They madly wave placards de claring Women for Trump and Make America Strong Again and jump up and down in pavlovian response to his cutting insults of the news media and whenever the crowd breaks out in chants of CNN sucks! It is show time for the president-cum-reality star. Hes in full-throated attack on the journalists covering the event, nger-pointing at the collective enemies of the people save Fox News. This night Trump goes after Chuck Todd, amiable host of NBCs Meet the Press, calling him sleepy eyes and a sleeping son-of-a-***** without explain ing his use of the vulgarity. One can only guess Todd asks questions the president doesnt consider nice. The placard girls go aerial as the crowd roars with boos and hisses at the mention of the fake news CNN, NBC, MSNBC and Todd. This is the state the free press in America nds itself at 14 months into Trumps reign. The president of the United States delights in cursing and bashing news out lets that dont pander to his outsized hubris about how great he is and how much hes achieved. And never mind the truth. It is an assault on the First Amendment to the Con stitution, a document Trump swore to uphold when he took ofce. Trump is a masterful propagandist, playing to his core whenever he needs reafrmation. The more he pokes the press in the eye, the more his faithful love it and trust in real journalism erodes. So too respect for the role of the media in our democracy. This is Sunshine Week in America, an annual ob servance by news organizations honoring the value of a free press that informs you, the people, about what your government is up to and why you should care about your right to know. Theres no jaundice to transparency. Journalists of all stripes strive to fulll their duty to inform. Some do it with hard news and investigative reporting, others with analysis and opinion. Both forms are important to holding public ofcials and others with power and inuence accountable. Trump sees it differently. He wants the press to kowtow to his agenda, his view of the world. He cant stomach journalism that reports his exaggerations, untruths and missteps. Or observations that take issue with his style and performance in ofce. He is only comfortable with press fawning and despotic control over his message, often spread on Twitter. James Madison, author of the First Amendment, and the nations founders would doubtless call out Trumps disrespect for the press freedom they created to keep presidents and other government ofcials honest in what they do and say. They understood the populace cannot perform this duty on its own; that the role of the press is to serve as the publics surrogate in keeping track of the functions, foibles and failures of government and reporting them forthright to the governed. They gured out that in self-government, the press is critical to public knowledge; a counterweight to dis information. The latter leads to imperious rule, some thing the founders wanted to avoid at all cost given the experience with their British overlords. Yet, here we are, more than 225 years after ratica tion of the First Amendment, ghting to preserve the medias duty against an onslaught from our president as well as Russian hackers and other nefarious interests seeking to undermine the role of the press in our dem ocratic system. The antidote is the press and the public pledging al legiance to the First Amendment and the sunshine for which it stands.

To help under stand why some people might ask this question, todays column is being dis tributed together with two photographs. One is of Agusta, age 8, a citizen of Iceland. The other is of Lucas, age 1, an American citizen in Dalton, Georgia, who recently was selected to be 2018 Spokesbaby for the Gerber baby food company. They are two examples of the problem. Now, before Iceland becomes snippy about the descrip tion of what it is doing, let us all try to think calmly about genocide, without getting judgmental about it. It is simply the deliberate, systematic attempt to erase a category of people. So, what one thinks about a genocide depends on what one thinks about the category involved. In Icelands case, the category is people with Down syndrome. This is a congenital condition resulting from a chro mosomal defect. It involves varying degrees of mental retardation (although probably not larger variances than exist between the mental capabilities of many people who are chromosomally normal say, Isaac Newton and some people you know). It also involves some physical abnormalities (including low muscle tone, small stature, atness of the back of the head, an upward slant to the eyes) and some increased health risks (of heart defects, childhood leukemia and Alzheimers disease). Average life expectancy is now around 60 years, up from around 25 years four decades ago, when many Down syndrome people were institutionalized or otherwise isolated, denied education and other stimulation, and generally not treated as people. Highly (almost but not perfectly) accurate prenatal screening tests can reveal Down syndrome in utero. The expectant couple can then decide to extinguish the fetus and try again for a normal child that might be less trou ble, at least until he or she is an adolescent with hormonal turbulence and a drivers license. In Iceland, upward of 85 percent of pregnant women opt for the prenatal testing, which has produced a Down syndrome elimina tion rate approaching 100 percent. Agusta was one of only three Down syndrome babies born there in 2009. Iceland could have moved onethird of the way to its goal if only Agusta had been detected and eliminated. Agustas mother is glad the screening failed in her case. An Iceland genet icist says we have basically eradicated Down syndrome peo ple, but regrets what he considers heavy-hand ed genetic counseling that is inuencing decisions that are not medical, in a way. One Icelandic coun selor counsels moth ers as follows: This is your life. You have the right to choose how your life will look like. She says, We dont look at abortion as a murder. We look at it as a thing that we ended. Which makes Agusta and Lucas things that were not ended. Because Icelands population is only about 340,000, the problem (again, see the photos of problem Agusta and problem Lucas) is more manageable there than in, say, the United Kingdom. It has approximately 40,000 Down syndrome citizens, many of whom were conceived before the development of effective search-and-destroy technol ogies. About 750 British Down syndrome babies are born each year, but 90 percent of women who learn that their child will have actually, that their child does have Down syndrome have an abortion. In Denmark the elimi nation rate is 98 percent.

So is France (77 percent), which seems determined to do better. In 2016, a French court ruled that it would be inappropriate for French television to run a two and a half video (Dear Future Mom) released for World Down Syndrome Day, which seeks to assure women carrying Down syndrome babies that their babies can lead happy lives, a conclusion resoundingly conrmed in a 2011 study Self-perceptions from peo ple with Down syndrome. The court said the video is likely to disturb the con science of women who aborted Down syndrome children. So, the photos of Agusta and Lucas are probably inappropriate. It speaks volumes about todays moral confusions that this the disruption of an un ethical complacency is the real Down syndrome problem. George Wills email ad dress is georgewill@wash post.com. Continued From Page 6A Problem came up empty so the K-9 team was deployed. Jordan was located 200 feet from the scene behind some bushes but he failed to comply with orders and was bit by a K-9, the report states. Jordan was transported to Ocala Regional Medical Center and shortly after ar riving ed on foot but was quickly located, the report states. According to the report, while Jordan was waiting for some tests to be done, he ed again and was quickly caught by a troop er and restrained. Jordan faces charges for DUI with injuries, leaving the scene of a crash with injuries and DUI property damage. He was booked into the Marion County Jail after being discharged from the hospital. According to Public Safety Director James Sommers, Jordan was ter minated Wednesday after being notied of the arrest. Jordan was a Battalion Chief and has been with the department since 2009, according to SCFR web site. He was previously with Marion County Fire Rescue. It is unfortunate these events occurred, Sommers said. The employee was off duty during the time of the incident. Suwannee County Fire Rescue does not condone nor tolerate these types of actions therefore his employment was terminated effective immediately. Continued From Page 1A SCFR The report states all items were recovered ex cept the sunglasses, several gloves and one baseball bat. According to the report, the suspects also removed a re extinguisher and discharged the device throughout the locker room on clothes, in bat bags and in the coaches ofce, dam aging numerous items and rendering the extinguisher ineffective should it be needed in the event of an emergency. The estimated damage was $3,000 for the ofce and locker room. According to the report, the suspects used a metal dug out tool in an attempt to enter a window at the softball coaches shed. The report states they were unsuccessful and eventually broke the glass window. According to the SCSO, the suspects took several cans of Sprite and Kit Kat bars from the shed and were found throughout the complex. The damage to the shed is estimated at $3,000. The report states the roof was inspected and beer cans were found. The report also states one of the suspects defecated on the roof and left their un derwear. The estimated damage to the six shattered atrium windows is $1,500. Sellers has been charged with burglary, criminal mischief, prevent/hinder reghters or equipment, grand theft, marijuana pos session and possession of drug equipment. Williams has been charged with burglary, criminal mischief, pre vent/hinder reghters or equipment and grand theft. Philmore has been charged with burglary, criminal mischief, pre vent/hinder reghters or equipment and grand theft. Continued From Page 1A Three ahold of that. Basically we are all a bunch of idiots up here for doing such a thing. We are not in favor of economic development in Live Oak. We dont need an agree ment really because we dont want development here. Allen said it seems that if the city cannot run busi nesses off with the Land Development Regulations then the city will code them out of here with code enforcement. Thats what I feel, Allen said. Thats what I see. Thats what probably most of the people out here in the audience see. Allen said Live Oak is not a friendly place to do business and suggested an attitude change for the staff. If attitude adjustments cant work, maybe we need regime changes, Allen said. I dont know what the answer is. We cannot continue on like we are. Local business owner Don Wainwright agreed with Allen that the LDRs are not business friendly. We have to make some changes to bring business in, Wainwright said. L&J Gas and Diesel business owner Charlie McIntosh said he has been told by city staff that he cannot clean up the over growth on his property. He added that he wanted to put up a fence but was told it could only be four feet high, which would not help him protect his property. According to George Curtis, the citys director of planning/zoning and development, the planning and zoning board will hold a workshop Monday, March 19, to discuss a re vision to the LDRs. The workshop discus sion will be facilitated by Kimley-Horn and Associ ates, Inc. Curtis said Kimley-Horn will present the city coun cil with proposed amend ments. The workshop will be held Monday at City Hall at 5:30 p.m. Economic Development The Suwannee County Board of County Commis sioners proposed several dates for a joint workshop. The city council agreed to the workshop on Thurs day, April 5, at the Coli seum. The agenda items for the workshop are the whole sale purchase of utilities and the Land Development Regulations and the impact to Economic Development. This workshop was pro posed after the city passed Resolution 18-04. Curtis recognized Curtis was recognized by City Manager Ron Wil liams for his service to the city. Congratulations for 10 years of outstanding com mitment and dedication to the community as an em ployee of the City of Live Oak, Williams said. Curtis serves as the citys director of planning/ zoning and development. Continued From Page 1A Allen Around the Banks Getting in the spirit for St. Patricks Day May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, the rain fall soft upon your elds, and un til we meet again. May God hold you in the palm of His hand. (Irish Blessing) Saturday, March 17, we will celebrate St. Patricks Day. Its not celebrated here in the same manner or with the same en thusiasm as in other parts of our nation. In cities like New York, N.Y.; Savannah, Ga., Boston, Mass.; it is a major celebra tion, as there were a large number of Irish immigrants who poured into those cities, and many of their descendants live there today. Savannah does a huge celebration, dyeing the Savannah River green and with all manner of street fairs and food vendors, as well as Irish music. South erners are great storytellers, and I am told the Irish have a gift for blarney too. I thought I would share with my readers some the history of St. Patricks Day. We wear green and may eat corned beef and cabbage and potatoes and some of the more enthusiastic may even eat Irish Soda Bread, but thats about as far as it goes. I am looking for that leprechaun who can tell me where the pot of gold can be found, but, so far, no luck. Here is some of the legend, which is a story that may or may not be true, but it has withstood the test of time which counts for something. I am only including part of the legend as it relates to St. Pat rick driving the snakes out of Ireland and using the shamrock to teach early Chris tian converts about the Trinity. Probably as famous as the story of the shamrock is the legend of Saint Patrick driving all the snakes of Ireland into the sea where they drowned. The well-received message is that there are no snakes in Ireland (save those in zoos) and he alone is responsible for this happy state. It is, however, very unlikely there were ever any snakes in Ireland! This particular legend of Saint Patrick is easy to trans late: snakes were sacred to the Druids; their banishment reects St Patricks success at removing pagan inuence from the island. Perhaps the best-known legend of Saint Patrick involves the shamrock, the little plant that has gone on to become famous throughout the world as a symbol of Irish heritage. After training as a priest and bishop, Patrick arrived in Ireland in 432AD and immediately set about trying to convert the pagan Celts who inhab ited the island. Having previously lived and worked there, he was very probably already aware that the number three held special signicance in Celtic tradition (and, indeed, in many pagan beliefs), and he ap plied this knowledge in a clever way. He used the shamrock, a three-leaved clover which grows all over the island, to explain the Christian concept of the Holy Trinity i.e. the theory that God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit are each separate elements of just one entity. In White Springs, Florida, we will cel ebrate St. Patricks Day with our annual Wild Azalea Festival, the 18th annual, I believe. There are all kinds of events beginning on March 16 with A Taste of White Springs at the Nature and Heritage Tourism Center from 6 p.m. till 8 p.m. Tickets are $5 each, and its the BEST DEAL in this part of the world. Delicious refreshments, and a large selec tion of them and a cool beverage. Come join us. Saturday, March 17, kicks off with the Wild Azalea Festival. A walk/run, I think 5K or as long as you can hold out is being sponsored by the Florida Department of Health: Hamilton County. Come join the walkers/runners, as they begin their trek at the Nature and Heritage Tourism Center at 9 a.m. and trek through Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park and back. The festival includes regional arts, crafts, foods, musical enter tainment, and events for children, and, in the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park, antiques and collectibles. So there is something for everyone beginning at 10 a.m. Some of the events are locat ed at the Bailey Ogburn Memorial Field behind New Bethel A.M.E. Church and others will be scattered throughout town. You will want to stop and take a trip through Adams Brothers Historic Store, as you will be delighted with the antiques, collectibles, and items that are just plain fun. In advance, I wish to thank the White Springs Special Events Committee for all their hard work. They have done an outstanding job coordinating this event. Thank you so very much. These folks do this work as a labor of love, and we love them for their labor and for their love of community. Come over to White Springs and enjoy the day. You will be glad you did. An invitation over to Madison, Florida, last Tuesday by an outstanding group of individuals who comprise a Book Club. This Book Club has been in effect for many years. The group chose my book Destini and invited me to come and answer questions about the book on Tues day, March 6, at 5 p.m. I was honored, and I was more than impressed with this group of readers in Madison County. They had some GREAT questions. They were kind enough to purchase my book, read it, and invite me as a guest of honor and to enjoy refreshments afterward. You cant beat that. Many have been that kind to me in this area, and especially the Su wanee River Regional Libraries in Jasper, White Springs, and Live Oak, as well as the public library in Lake City, and, Janet Moses at her Blue Goose Studio in Lake City. Thank you to all of you. I never, ever want to forget to mention local writ er and editor, Joyce Marie Taylor. She was, and has been the primary individual who encouraged me and just about made me put these books in print: Night shade, its sequel Secrets and the most recent publication Destini. I suggest you read all three in order. If you have Kindle, they are inexpensive and if you go to the public library, even more so. If you purchase them on Amazon, a little more expensive, and they are available there. We have many marvelous authors in this region, and I appreciate all our ar eas authors. I commend them for putting their thoughts in a story and publishing a book; not easy. Speaking of libraries, the Suwannee River Regional Library system has a mar velous addition to the Suwannee River Regional Library System at Dowling Park. The library was named in honor of a wonderful and very civic and commu nity minded lady, the late Mrs. Jo Ken non. This library is such an added plus to the library system, and I know it is being utilized and enjoyed. If you want to travel some place that is not very far, and I am not promoting anyone here, just stating a fact, drive out to Nobles Greenhouse near Live Oak, and just take in the beauty of Gods creation. The beautiful owers, trees, shrubs, all tended with loving care at Nobles. I wish to extend a hearty congratula tions to my cousin, Jan Townsend Smith, on her recent retirement from the Suwan nee County District Schools. I love Jan, and she puts her whole heart into what she is doing, and she certainly did adhere to that verse in the scripture Go to the ant and become wise, and ants work all the time, and so does Jan. Shes always doing something and something produc tive, and you know where you stand with her, and I like that. Enjoy your wellearned retirement Jan. Sympathy to the family of the late Mrs. Palmer Gene (Addie Mae) Smith, Sr. Jasper. Mrs. Addie Mae always had that sweet smile, and she was, without a doubt, one of the kindest, most encour aging ladies ever. She had a beautiful soprano voice, and her Christian testi mony was in the actions of her everyday life. She lived her Christianity, and she served her home church, First Baptist Church, Jasper, as long as she was able. Our prayers for her family during this, their hour of grief and bereavement. To her sons, Gene, Art, and all the fami ly, our continued prayers. She will be missed. She was always more than a bit of north Florida sunshine and a very great lady; a true Steel Magnolia. Before I close, I wish a Happy Birth day, to my sister-in-law, Amanda Allen Bullard. She is a truly great sister-in-law, and I love her. She is a very great lady; kind, a Christian, and, well, just wonder ful in every way, and she can truly play a piano, oh can she play. Her birthday is on Saturday, March 17, and she will cel ebrate an anniversary of her 39th. I love her and wish her many more. To conclude, memories of the early Florida Folk Festivals. I can recall that Epiphany Catholic School, Lake City, was staffed by a number of Irish Cath olic nuns. For many years, Epiphany Catholic School students danced the Irish jig on the stage of the Florida Folk Festival. I always enjoyed the music and the dancing, and those Sisters who came from County Kerry in Ireland did a great job educating many students in Colum bia and surrounding counties. From the Eight Mile Still on the Woodpecker Route north of White Springs. Wishing you a day lled with joy, peace, and, above all, lots of love and laughter.
