Jimmy Cherry. Jennifer Seaman, of Sea mans Aqua Clean, said they have looked into expansion but did not do it because of the LDRs. The process was going to take too long and even going through the process, you may not change them, Seaman said. Shelton said change can not come without workshops like Mondays. This is a rst step of looking into revisions, Shel ton said. He will work with the city staff on recommendations for the city.

The workshop was facil itated by Mark Shelton, of Kimley-Horn and Associ ates, Inc. The overall goal is the improvement of the health, safety, moral, order, comfort, convenience, appearance and prosperity, Shelton said. Great words but if your code doesnt address these things it never comes to fru ition. He said LDRs can be up dated and changed as the city deems necessary. City resident John Hill suggested the city get the process simplied for current and future business owners. These are the guys that are having to deal with the LDRs, Hill said. These are the guys that are investing money into the community. These are the guys who are wanting to build businesses. Hill added the process of building something is a lot easier in the county than the city. Eric Williams, owner of Tri-County Irrigation and Live Oak Tire Center, is planning on opening a new facility on 72nd Trace but now is facing a zoning change with a big fee. The land he purchased was originally in the county but has been rezoned to the city. Why do I have to pe tition to get it changed to city-commercial instead of county-commercial? Wil liams asked. Yall acquired it from the county so why wouldnt we waive that? He asked for the citys help to make the transition easy. Ashton Petersen, owner of Big Woods BBQ and Grill, recently received a letter from the city citing her for several issues. In addition to the 72nd Trace restaurant, she owns a few acres that she has been using for overow parking for tractor-trailers, trucks hauling boats and RVs. The sign she placed to direct the trafc is too big. Petersen said she was also informed that the city does not have anything in the LDRs for overow parking so she would have to rezone it. I dont want to turn it into a parking lot, Petersen said. She also received a permit from the county to install a culvert for the property. Petersen said the property is partially in the city and not the county like she thought. She said the city wants her to remove the culvert and start over. Petersen said she will do what it takes to get the cul vert up to code but she is not willing to remove it and start over. Petersen said her biggest issue is that according to the city, semi trucks cant drive on local roads including Vis ta Drive, the road next to her restaurant. The road is used by deliv ery trucks since her parking lot is not zero-turn. How am I supposed to receive deliveries? Petersen asked.

FRIDAY, MARCH 23, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 3A Remembering Suwannee A look at Nancy Parshleys will I have spoken of Nancy Parshley in previous articles. She and her husband John were instrumental in establishing downtown Live Oak as we now know it after the Civil War, setting up the var ious streets and their names, donating properties for multiple churches and schools (for whites and African-Ameri cans), and also the very location of the Suwannee County Courthouse. As with all people, however, Nancy Parshley could not live forever. The Clerks Office still has in its possession the last will and testament of Nancy Parshley, written in 1890. Because of the prominence of not only Nancy, but also her family, to Suwannee County and Live Oak history, I thought it fit ting to share it. You will notice that Mrs. Parshley used dashes (technically, em dashes) in place of commas and her spelling was impeccable, as befitted an educated woman of means In the name of God. Amen. I Nancy M. Parshley a widow re siding in Live Oak Suwannee County Florida being of sound mind and memo ry, and desiring while in health to make disposition of my property which shall belong to me at my death do make this my last will and testament here by revoking and annulling every and all former wills by me made First I desire that my debts which are small and few shall be paid. Second it is my wish that my chil dren shall share equally in my property and estate and to this end I make further directions. To my daughters Maria A. Brock, Arabella E. Ives and Emma L. Parshley and my sons John Howard Parshley and Wilbur Brown Parshley I give devise and bequeath all my prop erty both real and personal to them and their heirs forever, and in case of the death of either of said children before me then the child or children husband or wife shall inherit the portion of such deceased child according to the laws of Florida regulating descent in case no child wife or husband survive then my estate is to be divided among my chil dren hereinbefore named which shall survive me To my said daughters I give and be queath my silver spoons to be equally divided between them and to my said sons my silver plate to be equally divid ed between them. The paintings not already divided I desire divided between my said sons as near as may be I desire that my children select such keepsakes as they may wish and the residue shall be sold by my executors and the proceeds divided equally among my heirs herein before named. I desire that no appraisement of my personal estate be made and no bond required by my exec utors To fairly and fully divide the real estate I direct that my executors shall sell at public outcry all of my lands, in as small lots and parcels as convenient after notice of such sale or sales pub lished in some newspaper published in Live Oak and by posted notices in other towns at least thirty days and my executors are hereby authorized empowered and instructed to execute to the purchasers deed to each and every tract of land so sold of which I shall die seized and possessed without the in tervention of any Court or proceed ing at law or in chancery In all such sales by my executors they shall be for cash except where my heirs purchase in such cases. I de sire one year granted to such heirs as may wish it on any surplus they may owe to equalize them and such surplus shall be secured by mortgage upon land I desire my executors to qualify as soon as possible after my death and to make settlement and division of my es tate as soon as the law will permit I direct that my executors reserve from sale eighty (80) feet square in the home lot in Live Oak, Florida as the grave of their father John Parshley I appoint my beloved daughter Emma L. Parshley executrix and my beloved son John Howard Parshley and my son-in-law Wash. M. Ives executors of this my last will and testament and if from any cause any of them fail to qual ify then such as shall qualify is here by authorized to perform each and ev ery act which all could have performed in the execution of this trust In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and affixed my seal this 21st of May A.

She died in Suwannee County on January 21, 1897, and her will was probated by George Wolfe on February 10, 1897: Personally came George Wolfe who being duly sworn says that he with Wm. P. Mosely and D. M. McAlpin are the subscribing witnesses to foregoing attached will that he verily believes the same to be the true last will and testament of Nancy M. Parshley who died in Suwannee County, Florida Jan. 21st, 1897 that he has no inter est under the will and that Wm. P. Moseley and D. M.

Library seeking Letters of Support jessie.box@ganews.com LIVE OAK It has been two weeks since the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act was passed by Florida legislature and the Suwannee County School District is still deci phering what that means for the district. Following the Feb. 14 school shooting, Super intendent Ted Roush has been talking with Sheriff Sam St. John and Police Chief Buddy Williams about ideas on improving school safety. The schools currently follow the ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) protocol to handle threats of an aggressive intruder or active shooter event. ALICE allows teachers and staff to decide what is best for them in the situation. There are so many things that Superintendent Roush has already brought to the schools including ALICE and hardening the facility but there is still a lot of work to be done but we have to see what we can nancially afford, Assistant Superintendent of Administration Bill Brothers said. Assistant Superintendent of Instruction Janene Fitzpatrick said the administration has to review the act to see how much of what they have already done will count. We were already ahead of the game, Fitzpat rick said. Roush agreed with Fitzpatrick. He added that most of their schools have their own School Resource Ofcer and active shooter drills are already in place. Two schools share a School Resource Ofcer. The Safety Act also created the option of a Coach Aaron Feis Guardian Program to aid in the preven tion or abatement of active assailant incidents on school premises. The program would be run by the sheriff, should he decide to establish a program. Yes, I am in favor of the guardian program, Roush said. Roush added that before it is created, there is some language that needs to be dened. The act states that individuals who exclusively perform classroom duties as classroom teachers are excluded from the program. Roush wondered if a teacher that also coaches is excluded from the program. Prior to the school shooting, the school district had been working on securing the school entrances, which will allow there to be someone controlling who enters the school from the front. Suwannee Middle School and Branford High School will have upgrades completed this summer. He said the district is looking at school locks, pe rimeter fencing, camera systems, internal commu nications including radio, intercom and a telephone systems that would allow the district ofce to com municate to all eight campuses at the same time. We are looking at everything, Roush said.

According to Chamber Executive Director Jimmy Norris, the festivities will be spread across three days this year. The tree lighting ceremony, ribbon cutting and Jingle Bell Fun Run will be held Thursday, Nov. 29. The Snow on the Square, which de buted last year, with snow and snow slides will be held Friday, Nov. 30. Vendors for Christmas on the Square will also open Friday evening. Chamber President Brandon Fer nald said vendors will begin setting up Friday morning and open at 4 p.m., staying open until 10 p.m. Fernald said the snow and bounce houses will be more spread out this year. The vendors will also be open all day Saturday. Norris said the vendors indicated a want for a two-day festival. With the expansion of Christmas on the Square, parking for local busi nesses and county ofces will have to be resolved. Norris and Chairman Ricky Gam ble will talk with county ofces about parking options for Friday events or the possible closure of the ofces. The commissioners also approved a business incentive grant for an existing business, Bright Stars Acad emy Inc. According to Economic Devel opment Director Alvin Jackson, the company plans on building a new building for an expansion. Jackson said the business will have a capital investment of $1,269,900 and will have a net of seven new jobs. The total incentive will be $32,937.30 with seven annual install ments of $4,705.33.

Caseys office is located at 106 White Avenue just opposite City Hall. When Casey and his wife Nancy moved to Live Oak in 1972, he de signed the building. Casey, assisted by his wife, has operated the CPA business at this location for more than 46 years. The building, as well, has with stood the test of time as its unique interior is very tastefully designed, furnished and lighted thus provid ing clients with a soft, welcoming atmosphere. As one enters the building, an atrium is visible fea turing walls of pecky cypress. It has been estimated that less than 10 percent of cypress trees will have this characteristic, and only a portion of those trees can be cut to recover pecky grade lumber the ultimate in exclusivity. The atrium also features a water fall which overlooks a bridge under which is a pond, and planting areas filled with lush plants. The Ca seys commissioned Tom Brown, local landscape architect, to design the landscaping both around the exterior of the building and in the atrium. The Live Oak Garden Club com mends the Caseys for their out standing effort in maintaining such lovely landscaping for so many years for the residents of Live Oak and Suwannee County to enjoy. rfntbrfrfrn trr trnrtrn

FRIDAY, MARCH 23, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 5A Spring passes and one remembers ones innocence. Summer passes and one remembers ones exuberance. Autumn passes and one remembers ones reverence. Winter passes and one remembers ones perseverance. Yoko Ono Spring has ofcially arrived here Around the Banks of the Suwannee, and what a beautiful spring it is. The azaleas, dog wood, wisteria, wild azaleas, are a veritable feast for the eyes and a glorious balm for the heart. Springs makes me think of many wonder ful books that can be read and enjoyed; not only during the spring but through the year. Many of these books are available through your Suwannee River Regional Library sys tem in Suwannee, Hamilton and Madison counties. If they are not on the shelves; the able and friendly members of the library staff will do all they can to procure them from you; even through interlibrary loan. Here are a few of my recommendations for adults and children. Lets start with some contemporary recommendations for adults: 1. The Dream Lover by Elizabeth Berg 2. A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler 3. My Sunshine Away by M.O. Walsh 4. H is for Hawk by Helen McDonald 5. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins Now here are some classics that are always wonderful: 1. The Color Purple by Alice Walker 2. A Midsummers Night Dream by Wil liam Shakespeare 3. Silent Spring by Rachel Carson 4. Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurtson 5. Alices Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll 6. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen 7. A Moveable Feast by Ernest Heming way 8. A Room with a View by E.M. Forster 9. The Secret Garden by Elizabeth Hodg son Burnett 10. Everglades: River of Grass by Marjory Stoneman Douglas Some Childrens books. Some that are classic. Some fairly new: 1. The Adventures of Peter Rabbit by Be atrix Potter 2. What Will Hatch? by Jennifer Ward 3. Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert 4. Who Likes Rain? by Wong Herbert Yee 5. The Rooster Who Would Not Be Quiet by Eugene Yelchin and Carmen Agra Deedy 6. The Little Red Hen by Florence Williams White 7. The Story of Chicken Little 8. The Ugly Duckling by Hans Christian Anderson 9. Quackers by Liz Wong 10. Giggle, Giggle, Quack by Doreen Cronin The next two I recommend I discovered through a good friend, and she read aloud from this recommendation. Some of the most beautiful, descriptive writing ever. This au thor was considered a child prodigy and later the critics discredited her, but her writing is magnicent, and what makes it even more magnicent is she wrote this book in the iso lation of lumber camp in the Pacic North west where her parents lived. It was written in 1902. She had no formal training, and I truly believe what Truman Capote said once, Creative writing can be rened by education, but, really it cant be taught. People can either write creatively or they cant, and that is the truth. If you can order this one. Its worth your while. A fabulous spring time read. The Singing Creek Where the Willows Grow : Diary of Opal Whitely by Opal Whiteley. The next one is worth listening to the au thor read on You Tube and its poetry, pure beauty, and his voice is magnicent. I highly recommend reading it or listening to it: Fern Hill by Dylan Thomas. Now, while you are relaxing on the beach, by the pool, or under the cool of the air conditioner, or if you are rocking on your screened porch with a glass of iced tea, any of these books will add to your joy, and some of the childrens books would make great gifts to place in Easter baskets or as a spring time gift. Spring time. A beautiful and wonderful time Around the Banks of the Suwannee. To my readers in Jasper, Florida. We have a two Book Clubs at the Jasper Public Library. One meets in the day and one during the eve ning. Our next Book Club meets, the evening Book Club on Monday, April 16, at 6 p.m. Wonder by R.J.

We need your continued support at the public libraries and what better way than to read and come join a congenial group for about an hour and discuss the book. Our book club is very informal and kind like playing bridge where its not cut throat. I hate that. I love it when you play, have some coffee and a piece of homemade cake or pie, talk a little or a lot, and play some more, for fun. Thats what our book club is like. We have a good time. So get out and enjoy everything; the beau ty of our north Florida spring time. Some upcoming events in our area. Out as Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, this coming weekend, March 22-25.

I seriously overslept this morning! Is it just me or is anyone else having a tough time adapting to daylight savings time? I do love the extra daylight hours in the evening, but I cant seem to get enough sleep to make up for the hour we lost a few weeks ago. So, I ew out of bed and was out the door in 20 minutes, but then spent the rest of the morning trying to get my brain in gear. Since I obviously didnt have time to get any wise counsel from my Bible this morning, I grabbed it and my devotional book on my way out the door. One of my absolute favorite things about Jesus is that He is always right on time even when Im not. As I spent the morning being frustrated about being behind on my to-do list, I convinced myself that this day was doomed to be unproductive. By noon, I had barely crossed anything off my list. So I grabbed my Bible and book to at least get that done while I ate lunch. Through my devotion book, Jesus Calling by Sarah Young, this is what Jesus had to say to me: A successful day is one in which you have stayed in touch with Me (Jesus), even if many things remain undone at the end of the day. Do not let your to-do list become an idol directing your life. I am not even kidding. To be honest, I didnt really appreciate these words at rst. I mean, surely God wants us to be productive, right? Then the Holy Spirit reminded me of Jesus friends Mary and Martha. Their story is found in Luke 10:38-42. To make a short story even shorter, Jesus and his disciples were visiting and Martha was serving them. Her younger sister Mary sat listening to Him teach, which put Martha behind schedule. I couldnt help but wonder if she overslept too. Martha then complained to Jesus, to which He replied, Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good por tion, which will not be taken from her. So maybe spending time with Him should be our priority over the todo list. Even when we get behind schedule! The awesome thing about how His timing works is that if I had not overslept, I would have read this about 6 a.m. this morning over a great cup of coffee, nodded in agreement, and closed the book. Then I would have gone about my day, probably being very productive, checking things off my list and perhaps even a few things from tomorrows list as well. I would have totally missed the truth of that to-do list being an idol directing my life. Being frustrated over the events of the morning and my own limitations revealed that I was doing exactly this very thing. I think Jesus timing in Marthas life taught her a very similar lesson.

LOS ANGELES On a recent Sunday evening, Katie Hill, 30, whose father is an LA police lieu tenant in Beverly Hills, boarded a red-eye ight to Washington for frenetic fundraising and networking. She must really want to get into the House of Repre sentatives. If she does, she will have defeated a twoterm incumbent, Rep. Steve Knight, 51, who was an LA police ofcer for 18 years and is the last Repub lican in a district containing a signicant portion of Los Angeles County. Californias 25th District includes Simi Valley, which is famous as the home of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and the trial of police ofcers charged with brutality against Rodney King. It is home to many of the Los Angeles police ofcers who helped quell the city rioting after the accused ofcers acquittal. Hills father-in-law, too, is a cop. Her husbands uncle was an ofcer killed in the line of duty; his death is currently Orange Countys only unsolved police murder. In the June 5 primary, Hill will be the rst Democrat to receive her fathers vote. The 25th is at the top of the list of seven (of 14) Republican-held California seats that Democrats hope to capture because Hillary Clinton carried them. The seven are almost a third of the 23 such districts nationwide. Joe Trippi, the Democratic consultant who was media adviser to Doug Jones successful Alabama U.S. Senate campaign, says Jones got votes from Republicans who still support the president but want no more chaos. But referring to California Democrats, he warns that our own en thusiasm might get in the way. This is because in 2012, Democrats who run this almost monochrome blue state ignored the axiom that improvements often make things worse. They instituted a primary sys tem under which the top two vote-getters for an ofce are on the November ballots, even if both are from the same party. This year, Democrats, fueled by fury against the president, might produce such a profusion of can didates that the Democratic vote will be fragmented, putting weak general-election Democrats, or no Democrats, on some Novem ber ballots. In 2014, when Republican Buck McKeon, chair man of the House Armed Services Committee, retired after 11 terms representing the 25th, Republi can Tony Strickland, with 30 percent of the primary vote, ran against Knight (28 percent) in November. Democrats were excluded because their top per former in the primary received 22 percent. In 2016, a Democrat, Bryan Caforio, ran against Knight and lost by 6 points while Clinton was winning the dis trict by 7 points. Caforio is running again. Either he or Hill probably will be Knights opponent in No vember. Congressional districts drawn by Republican state legislatures after the 2010 census and after that years anti-Democratic wave election might some what insulate Republicans from a blue wave this year. But eight years is a long time in a dynamic re gion like Southern California, and for eight years the 25th has been receiving an inux of housing refu gees people of modest means seeking affordable housing outside the city, and bringing the citys SEE DEMOCRATS, PAGE 9A While having lunch earlier this week, my son picked a sesame seed off his bun and handed it to my wife. Not a big deal. Until he informed her it was so we could go home and grow a burger. Im not sure if we need any special soil to pull off this feat or if regular old dirt will do. But Im sure area farmers and restaurants will be interested if he can accomplish turning a sesame seed into a full-blown hamburger. It was just the latest example that kids really do say the darnedest things. Have you ever wondered just where do children come up with some of their ideas? He may be just 5, but my son is full of ideas ranging from funny to brilliant and everywhere in between. During our familys spring break trip to the mountains in Tennessee, we visited Cooters Place in Gatlinburg, a de facto Dukes of Hazzard museum. While it may no longer be deemed acceptable television viewing, when I was his age, it was among my favorite things. Countless General Lee matchbox cars were played with until the tires were worn off, constantly replaced by my parents. So while that particular destination may have been more for me than him, my son did get a Flash Coltrane driv ers license from Cooters. Im not sure why a dog needs a drivers license, but my son believed he was now capable of driving. When told after we got home that he still wasnt allowed to drive the car, he dejectedly realized that his license was useful. What we hope is a useful and fun activity is T-ball. Enter ing his rst season, the importance of listening and following directions is quickly being reinforced in practices. When the coach gathers the players at the pitchers mound before sending them off to their next activity, he tells them to move on the word go. Normally that follows an assortment of similar-sounding words. I know one who is starting to gure that out as my son declared this week that his coach is saying gopher or goblin just to see who is paying attention. Now hopefully hell continue picking up the other lessons and learn to play baseball. And maybe even a new way to grow a hamburger.

Before exploring Walter Williams, Decline Of Morality Is To Blame For Increased Violence, (Su wannee Democrat, March 7, 2018), we wondered Whence The Pinnacle from Which The Descent ? Dr. Williams does not say. He implies it does not include diversity. I just want to comment on all the acronyms that are used in the newspaper CRA, BOCC and all the others that are used. When you start an article, why dont you rst spell that out in long with the words whatever they mean. So that when we come to the abbreviations or acronyms down in the text, we know what youre talking about. Thanks. What unit or com pany or branch of government do they represent? I hate this time change. Why cant you leave it alone as it was. This was instituted in World War II. I cant think of anybody its helping now except to keep you in bed an hour later when you ought to be out of bed. Please, somebody do something about changing this time back to what it was.

Williams (Su wannee Democrat, March 21, 2018): Guns Are Not The problem) that rearms were far more available in 1902 as they are now yet there werent so many gun homicides. Skipping the obvious aws in that comparison, including dening availability as: Being listed in Sears Catalogue, we read Dr. Williams accounting of statistics on murder in 2016 as a mere 2.13 % by rie. Golly, in 1902 you could blow out a teenagers spine with a $17 Winchester in one shot, but now you have hose down a crowd to get the same job done.

Donald Trump, who did not visit California in the 13 months after becoming president, did worse there in 2016 (31.6 per cent of the vote) than Herbert Hoover did against Franklin Roosevelt in 1932 (37.4). Yes, Hoover was a California resi dent, but the national unemploy ment rate was 24.7 percent. The district is more than one-third Democratic, about one-third Republican, and one-quarter in dependent. Knights vote for the Republican tax bill, with its lim its on the deductibility of state and local taxes, adds to his vul nerability in high-tax California. Being 21 years younger than Knight is another Hill advan tage. In 2008, Barack Obama carried national voters under age 45 by 15 points. In Alabama in December, Jones carried that age cohort by around 20 points. Suburban women, of whom the 25th District has many, also are recoiling against Republicans. The Economist reports that, na tionally, around 400 women, mostly Democrats, are planning to run for the House, at least 50 for the Senate and 79 for governor. ... At state and local levels, the picture is the same. In 2015 and 2016, around 900 women consulted Emilys List (which supports women candi dates) about standing for ofce; since Mr. Trumps election, over 26,000 have.

I have been in law enforcement for 30 years, and this has been the most difcult situation I have faced, Live Oak Police Chief Buddy Williams said after the trial. A trusted friend, ofcer and protector of the public betrayed all facets of the job he swore to do.

Gilead Baptist Church food ministry in western Suwannee County started eight years ago in Gary Watsons truck. The ministry gives away food on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month. Just trying to share the love of Christ with people and help them with a little food, said Watson, the food ministry director. The truck gave way to a building, a warehouse full of donations and discounted groceries but Monday morning, co-manager Yvonne Vest noticed some thing wasnt right. Its hard to describe, said Vest. Your heart drops to the pit of your stomach. A stainless steel com mercial freezer was taken from right outside the store. There are no cameras around to capture who did it. Im just sick about the loss and the people it hurt, said Watson. It hurt people in my church that donated for that freezer, and it hurt the hundreds that we serve here. The freezer had to be put outside, because theres no room inside the store. Who ever stole the freezer cut the chains and got away with a lot more than just a freezer. We had approximately 1,000 pounds of meat in that freezer that we were willing to give away this Saturday, said Watson. Sheriff Sam St. John said there was approximately $3,000 worth of meat in the freezer. He said it appears the people who took the freezer knew which one had the meat because the other two freezers were un touched. He described the theft as heartless because the food is given to people who need it. We need to try to nd these people, St. John said. I didnt believe that any body would stoop that low that they would steal from Continued From Page 1A Freezer and all others involved. Justice did prevail. This case is another example of the relentless efforts of the FBI and our law enforcement partners to identify those who prey on our children, Charles P.

It is made even more egregious hav ing been committed by someone who swore to uphold the law and protect the community. Let it be known that the FBI will stop at nothing to protect innocent victims, and seek justice for the heinous acts committed against them. This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Inves tigation, the Columbia County Sheriffs Ofce, and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, with the full cooperation of the LOPD. It was prosecuted by As sistant United States Attorney D. Rodney Brown. the food pantry, said Vest. The ministry serves more than 1,000 people each month from the surrounding area. Watson says they nev er turn anyone away, which makes losing the freezer that much harder. I pray that theyll nd the Lord Jesus Christ in their life as I have, and Hell make the change in their life that He made in mine, said Watson. Some residents have started collecting reward money for information leading to the return of the freezer. This Saturdays food giveaway will go on as scheduled. Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriffs ofce at 386-362-2222.

Its just a way for us to get out in the communi ty and spread that if people can kick the habit for a day, hopefully theyll realize they can kick the hab it forever, said Heidi Hofer, the groups sponsor. Thats the theory behind Kick Butts Day. This year was the 22nd annual Kick Butts Day, where students encourage their peers to be tobac co-free, reject tobacco companies marketing and urge elected ofcials to help make the next genera tion tobacco-free. In Florida, tobacco use claims 32,300 lives and costs $8.64 billion in health care bills each year. Currently, 4.2 percent of Floridas high school stu dents smoke. Last year, the local SWAT group, which includes students from Lafayette and Suwannee counties, picked up cigarette butts around the springs in the area. Hofer, who supervises the group from Melody Christian Academy, said the club decided as a group to go with the painted rock idea to do some thing different. And in the process, they are hoping it makes a difference. Its a nice way to get out in the community and help, Lindsey Hofer said. Makinzy Frazier added: We want to help the community.

This afforded me a wealth of extensive knowledge and experience in creating and meeting deadlines, negotiations, conict res olution, problem solving and listening skills to both staff and clientele. I also enjoyed my career as a co operative manager assisting farmers with developing, purchasing and marketing skills, record keeping and business plans.

I serve as a deacon and I teach Sunday School/Bible study at Beulah Hill Missionary Baptist Church. Following my retire ment, a team of volunteers and myself have chosen to ght for the people not just in District 4, but throughout the City of Live Oak. After seeing the constant negative impact of the multiple 4-1 coun cil votes against the best practices for the citizens of Live Oak, I knew I had to run to affect change from within. Ask yourself, or your council person, on those (4-1 against votes), was your city council per son that one lone yes vote for the people? Live Oak has ve council persons! We have fought and will continue to ght for these issues: 1. Fought for a No vote on using tens of thousands of dollars of city funds to purchase a brand new truck for the city manager we rarely ever see him us ing in and around the city. 2. Fought for continu ation of the city contract with B.W. Helvenston & Sons, Inc. as we felt the cancellation would lead to losses of recoupable funds Mr. Harvard is known to ght for. 3. Fought for replace ment of the horrible con ditions of the Ichetucknee / Miller Street road. De manded new pavement all the way to Highway 129 with safety signage. We have a victory. Will update community on start date. 4. Fought for a No vote that we thought would have dire consequences on water rates. As we thought, it has done exact ly that, and sparked an in crease in complaints about extreme increase in some citizens water cost. Some citizens have contacted us with water bills as high as $500-1,000. This is unac ceptable. 5. Fought for University of Florida to be contacted to discuss working with the City of Live Oak to send in environmental students to do a research study. The study would focus on the citizens complaints on the poor quality of water they now pay excessive rates for (rust and foul odor). 6. Fought for the city to address and reevaluate the city water leak policy resolution 16-16 to make it more understandable and favorable to citizens. (At present it is unequal ly skewed to benet the city.) The city agreed to change and/or work on this months ago, but as of this date NO CHANGES! I will continue to ght for you and be a voice. 1. I will: When elected, will hold quarterly District 4 meetings to hear your concerns and present them to the full council meeting. 2. I will: Continue to ght against removal of our historic Live Oak trees that are not damaged. 3. I will: Continue to ght with you against high, unexplained water bills based on the history of the customers account. Push conversation to change the present leak policy (Resolution policy 16-16). 4. I will: Continue to ght for changes to ad dress and evaluate our al leged contaminated water supply. 5. I will: Continue to ght for transparency on how, when and where you tax dollars are being spent. 6. I will: Continue to ght to return the city back to the city council. Advo cate to abolish the strong arm dictatorship mentality. 7. I will: Continue to ght for dialogue between the city and county to discuss the cost saving measures of a merger. This merger data has been shown to possibly save the citizens of Live Oak over $1 million. Money that could change the City of Live Oak in a very posi tive manner. Such as being used to save lives by add ing lifesaving paramedics to the stations within the city limits and upgrade and update our infrastructure (streets, etc.). When elected as your councilman, two things I would ask of you for us to be successful: Attend your city coun cil meetings to learn how your councilman, mayor and city manager make decisions and how they affect you and your family.

While Florida has received recent rainfall, drought con ditions throughout the state are expected to continue. The Florida Forest Service has battled more than 700 wildres across the state in 2018. Floridas wildland re ghters have proven time and again that they are pre pared to put their lives on the line to keep Floridians safe, Putnam said in a release. Floridians can do their part by keeping preventable hu man-caused wildres at bay and preparing their families and homes for wildre. There are currently 41 active wildres throughout Florida. Most of the wildres this year have been caused by escaped yard trash burns. Many wildres this year have unfortunately been human-caused, said Jim Karels, Florida State For ester. Its imperative that Floridians are cautious with re to help protect Floridas residents, natural resources and wildland reghters.

So far, the FBI hasnt shared any more information about this investigation. Just last month, Jereb took back a claim that Parkland school shoot er Nikolas Cruz was a member of the Re public of Florida. His group calls for Florida to be a white ethno-state and to use armed force if necessary. FRIDAY, MARCH 23, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 8A Nation rr Raycom Investigative Unit Editors Note: The following story is a follow-up to the recent License to Pill series on the opi oid crisis. To sell the partner of a New York doctor on the benets of a powerful opioid, two drug sales men hosted a night on the town for them at a Manhattan strip club. Dr. Jeffrey Goldstein and his partner, Dr. Todd Schlifstein, drank alcohol, visited the pri vate room, and enjoyed lap dances. When the evening end ed, the salesmen picked up the $4,100 tab, having set the stage to lure the partner into the drug companys web of greed. The salacious details of that 2013 outing were spelled out in a federal indictment against the New York City doctors and three others that was unsealed March 16. They are accused of prescrib ing the opioid Subsys in return for kickbacks and bribes from Insys Therapeutics, the Arizo na-based company that makes the highly addictive fentanyl spray. In February, a Raycom Media national investigation identied Goldstein and Schlifstein partners at a medical spa that offers butt augmentations among other treatments as doctors who received hundreds of thou sands of dollars in kickbacks from Insys. The more Subsys they pre scribed, the more the drugmaker would pay them in speaker fees, court records say. The drug is intended for can cer patients with extreme pain that cant be contained by oth er opioids. Goldstein, 48, and Schlifstein, 47, are not cancer specialists. They represent a handful of doctors who have faced criminal charges for their roles in Insys scheme to trade fees for pre scriptions. They were indicted in federal court in New York along with pain specialists Drs. Gor don Freedman and Alexandru Burducea and oncologist Dialecti Voudouris. Law enforcement ofcials, attorneys general and medical experts have said that Insys ran a criminal enterprise to boost sales of its drug Subsys. John Kapoor, the companys founder and former chairman, was charged last year with racketeering and conspiracy to violate the federal anti-kick back law, which is designed to protect patients and health care programs from the corrupting inuence of money. Now Goldstein, Schlifstein and the three other doctors face similar charges that could land them in a federal prison for more than 30 years if convicted. These prominent doctors swore a solemn oath to place their patients care above all else, Manhattan U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said. In stead, they engaged in a malig nant scheme to prescribe fentan yl a dangerous and potentially fatal narcotic 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine in exchange for bribes in the form of speaker fees. They schemed, he said, to use their patients as an instrument for prot. Insys, identied in the indict ment as Pharma Company 1, corrupted a legal program that allows doctors to receive pay ments from drug companies for speaking to medical profession als about the benets of certain medicines. Insys used the program to en courage and reward doctors who prescribed high amounts of Sub sys. The more they prescribed, the more events they were in vited to speak at. The doctors could earn as much as $3,000 per event. In a written statement released Monday, Insys said it is making changes: The company continues striving to take responsibility for inappropriate actions of some former employees and has in vested signicant resources over the last several years to establish an effective compliance program and build an organizational cul ture of high ethical standards, the statement says. Intending to learn from past events, we also continue working with relevant authorities to resolve issue relat ed to inappropriate actions taken by former employees. Dr. Burduceas attorney said his client has pleaded not guilty. Hes back at work and we are hopeful for speedy trial, said Nicholas Kaizer. He must provide weekly re ports detailing the prescriptions he has written to federal investi gators. The other indicted doctors, all of whom have surrendered their licenses to prescribe controlled substances, either did not re turn phone calls or could not be reached for comment. Before joining Insys speaker program, the ve doctors rare ly if it all had written a prescription for Subsys. But by the end of 2015, all had been among the top prescribers in the country at some point during their involvement in the fee-forspeaking program. Federal investigators tallied their fees: Goldstein received $196,000, and Schlifstein $127,000 from Insys. Of the top 20 medical person nel recipients of Insys payments from 2013 to 2016, all but one had active medical licenses in their state as of mid-February, according to Raycom Medias investigation. Goldsteins and Schlifsteins licenses remain active in New York. A spokeswoman said the state medical board cannot com ment beyond that. Raycom Medias analysis of federal records found that over a four-year period, Insys paid $18.7 million to more than 13,000 doctors for food, consult ing fees and travel. Half of the Insys payments went to physicians specializing in cancer or pain treatment. The rest of the payments worth $7.6 million went to doctors such as psychologists, sports medicine physicians and a mar riage therapist. Among those non-cancer doctors are Goldstein and Schlifstein. Their indictment details the corrupt scheme that included sharing patients private medical information with outsiders, bam boozling insurance companies and hosting drunken parties paid for by Insys. Goldstein spent two years as an Insys speaker. Before joining the fee program in 2013, he had written only one Subsys pre scription since it was introduced the prior year. By 2014, he was the sixth highest Subsys prescriber in the U.S. But his relationship with Insys was not always rosy. At one point, when the drugmak er learned that Goldstein was writing prescriptions for drugs from a competitor. The Insys sales rep ordered him to stop or be dropped from the companys speakers bureau. Goldy just had third kidso he needs $$$, a regional sales manager texted to an Insys cor porate ofcial, according to the indictment. Shortly thereafter, Goldstein switched his patients on the competitors drug to Sub sys. An Insys sales representative worked from Goldsteins ofce and posed as an employee to persuade insurance companies to pay for Subsys. The sales rep also picked up the tab, charged to an Insys vice presidents credit card, for the ofce Christmas party. The cost: nearly $2,100. Goldsteins speaking events also included $600 dinners at casinos in Connecticut and New Jer sey with his wife and an Insys sales man. Another occurred at a nightclub that cost more than $2,000. Federal agents also said that Goldstein drank heavily and used mar ijuana and co caine with his staff during the speaking events. In 2014, Freedman was the highest paid doctor in the speaker program. He, Goldstein and Schlifstein helped recruit Burducea and Voudouris, the only cancer doctor among the group. She had never prescribed Subsys before a sales rep asked her if she was interested in join ing the speak for fee program. Eventually, she was ordered by Insys to write at least one prescription every day for the fentanyl spray. By the spring of 2015, Voudouris had become the tenth highest prescriber in the pro gram. Her prescription-writing habits were so prolic that in just one four-month period, she earned more than $581,000 for Insys. A series of doctors were con vinced to push aside their ethi cal obligations and prescribe a drug for prot, said William F. Sweeney Jr., the assistant direc tor in charge of the FBI. Doc tors and medical professionals everywhere should be reminded . that the health and safety of their patients is not for sale.

The leader of a hate group in Tallahassee was in court Thursday morning after he was arrested at his mothers house Wednes day following an FBI search. Jordan Jereb, the self-proclaimed leader of a the Republic of Florida, appeared before a Leon County judge from a jail camera. Hes charged with violating his probation from a 2016 ex tortion case. Overnight, WTXL confirmed Jerebs arrest comes as a 2016 case involving him making threatening statements to an employee in Governor Rick Scotts office has been reopened. On Wednesday the FBIs Joint Terror ism Task Force grabbed several bags of evidence from a home on the 900 block of Park View Drive, which belongs to Jerebs mother. Authorities say they found tactical knifes and weapons during that raid in a Piney Z neighborhood. Since Jereb is on probation, authorities say he violated his conditions by having weapons. Tallahassee Police and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement helped with the search, which started Wednesday morning and ended around 2 p.m. Before being put in a police car, Jereb screamed, I didnt do anything wrong! Im a good person. His court appearance was been post poned until Friday, so Jerebs attorney, who is listed as Nathan Prince on paper work, will be present. nftf Pilot for a Day: A-10 pilots make wish come true brrbb 23d Wing Public Affairs MOODY AIR FORCE BASE When one 15-year-old, was asked to make a wish to be anything and go anywhere the answer was sim ple. I want to be a Flying Tiger. Pilots from the 23d Fighter Group embraced Jared Storey, who is terminally ill with osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, as an hon orary A-10C Thunderbolt II pilot. Its just cool to me, Jared said. Its been awesome being around here. Its everything I dreamed of and more. Throughout the day, Jared was outtted as an A-10 pilot, received a mass brief, toured the ightline, and watched pre-ight inspections. But the day didnt end there; Jared also got a once in a lifetime look at the aircraft practice on the Grand Bay Bombing and Gunnery Range and he ew the ight simulator. Hes always wanted to y a jet so making this happen was a big thing for him, said Douglas Hollingsworth, Jareds uncle. I think he loved it especially when the A-10s got so close that we could breathe in what the A-10 was kicking out. He denitely had a great time. Hollingsworth said he and Jareds grandfather were previous Moody airmen and seeing his nephew put on the gear was an added bonus for the whole family. I saw his face and I think he really enjoyed today, said Lt. Col. Craig Morash, 74th Fighter Squad ron commander. We wanted to be able to help in anyway that we could and to make sure that Jared has the opportunity to get to see and do the things he wants to do. Whats neat is that he was also able to talk to the pilots over the ra dio at the range, Morash said. For us, it makes us think a lot more about what we do, why were doing it and whom were doing it for. Although the fun-lled day was jam-packed with highlights, Jared said hell never forget the pilots show-of-force maneuvers. After watching them y low and slow, they radioed down and said Hey Jared, now youre ofcially a Fly ing Tiger. Jared may have thought the A-10 pilots were making his dream come true but what he didnt realize is that hed be leaving a lasting im pression. After what hes been through and letting him get the chance to be a Flying Tiger like us was awe some, said 1st Lt. Shaun Dickin son, 74th FS A-10 pilot. (After today) Im going to cherish every thing and always enjoy what Im doing. Jared wanting to come and do what we do is awesome and I wont take that for granted. Jared is a former Pine Grove Middle School student who moved to Atlanta to be closer to treatment. ftbnfnnfnnfnn tfnnfnntfrnf nfntrffntbnfnnff nnft

MANTOOTH, DDS, P.A.Presented as a service to the community by ASK DR. MANTOOTH Researchers assessed 6,711 adults who had not had a stroke for periodontal disease and categorized the adults according to whether they had mild, moderate or severe periodontal disease. ey followed patients for 15 years for the incidence of stroke, also documenting the stroke subtype based on cause. A total of 299 ischemic strokes occurred during the 15 years, including 47 percent that were thrombotic stroke, from a clot within the brains blood vessels; 26 percent that were cardioembolic, when a blood clot forms in the heart; and 20 percent that were lacunar strokes, which occurs when there is a blockage of small arteries that supply blood to the brain. ey found: 1.9 times more likely to have an ischemic stroke than those without periodontal disease, times higher ischemic stroke risk and adults with severe gum disease were 2.2 times more likely to suer an ischemic stroke than those who had no periodontal disease. periodontal disease and stroke risk was most pronounced in the cardioembolic and thrombotic stroke subtypes. e graded association between the level of gum disease and incident ischemic stroke supports a possible causal association between gum disease and ischemic stroke, researchers said.ADULTS WITH GUM DISEASE MAY BE AT GREATER ISCHEMIC STROKE RISK 59904-1 LIVE OAK By popular demand, Ted McMullens Legends Show and pre-party will be held April 6-7 at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park.

Rather than instituting a restrictive diet that forces you to cut back on your favorite snacks and dishes, consider making simple changes that can go a long way so you can enjoy the flavors of the season without sacrificing taste or eating less. For example, Atkins offers a long-term, healthy lifestyle featuring a balanced approach of high-fiber carbohydrates, optimal protein and healthy fats, while focusing on reducing levels of refined carbohydrates, added sugars and hidden sugars, which are the carbohydrates that convert to sugar in the body you cant see them but your body does. Fresh flavors abound during spring, and you can enjoy natures bounty while avoiding hidden sugars by selecting highfiber, low-glycemic fruits and vegetables. For example, a single avocado contains 10 grams of dietary fiber in addition to healthy fat. Consider a menu comprised of recipes like Egg-Filled Avocado with Prosciutto, Avocado Kale Berry Smoothie Bowl and Thai Peanut Buddha Bowl. Learn more about the benefits of a balanced, flexible, low-carb approach to eating at Atkins.com. Find more inspiration, tips and recipes by seeking out additional resources like Atkins: Eat Right, Not Less: Your Guidebook for Living a Low-Carb and Low-Sugar Lifestyle. The book, filled with 100 whole-food recipes and simple solutions for living a low-carb lifestyle, contains a variety of meal plans, low-carb takes on classic comfort foods and tips for creating a low-carb kitchen.

Sports SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK FRIDAY, MARCH 23, 2018 BHS baseball off to hot start michael.jones@ganews.com BRANFORD When Alex OQuinn rst took over as baseball coach at Branford High in 2014, there were some growing pains during a 2-15 sea son. The Buccaneers have steadily progressed since then, building winning teams with a fairly young group of players. Now, with a roster loaded with se niors who are expecting to win, the Bucs are off to a 6-1 mark to begin this year. Its their best start to a season since 2007. The guys feel like theyre supposed to win, OQuinn said. And that means a lot. Ive coached these guys since eighth grade, JV all the way through varsity. Ive always had high expectations for them. Their expectations are high. Having an OK season is not good enough for me. And they understand that. The results thus far have been much better than average. After a loss to Fort White in the second game of the regular season, BHS has won ve straight games. The Buccaneers, who feature an experienced pitching staff led by Tyler Whiteld, Rylee McKen zie and Dylan Kelley, are giving up just 2.3 runs per game while scoring more than ve runs per contest. For Whiteld, its been a combination of factors thats led to a good start, including the play of some freshmen stepping into starting roles. Although most of the starting lineup consists of upperclassmen, Clay Williams and Seth Heiderman have given Branford a lift in their rst year on the team. We had some ups and downs, especially in the preseason. But once we started getting our bats going, thats really solved it, Whiteld said. Our defense is doing outstanding this year. A lot of the younger kids Seth and Clay are stepping up. Our bottom of the order is showing out. Branfords rst victory during the winning streak came against Dixie County in walk-off fashion. The Bucs most impressive win this season came against Lafayette on March 2 when Dylan Kelley pitched six strong innings in an 8-1 win. Kelley, like Whiteld and McKenzie, has been a key hitter and pitcher. Hes also one of the seven seniors leaders. Weve been playing together so long, Kelley said. We have seven seniors. We know how to be calm in certain situations. McKenzie also spoke about the bond of playing with the same group of players. We have a connection, McKenzie said. Weve stayed together since T-ball. Were keeping it simple, making the defensive plays, keeping the score low and doing what we have to do to win. Branford will get it biggest test of the season Monday when it hosts district foe Trenton. Both teams are undefeated in district play Branford at 5-0 and THS at 4-0. The Tigers, defending state champions, have won the last three games against the Buccaneers. It would be great to beat them, said Whiteld. We have really good talent, they have really good talent. We need to attack early and get some runs on the board at the beginning. rfntnbn nrtfn nrn nn nn Scarborough signs with Illinois College LIVE OAK Live Oaks Alex Scarborough is continuing his educa tion and football career at Illinois College in Jacksonville, Illinois. The quarterback signed with the Blueboys on Wednesday at Suwannee Middle School. I took a visit there about a month ago. It was a real ly good vibe from there. I loved the people, the place, coaches, Scarborough said. Its a blessing. With out my family and every one Im around, I couldnt do this. In two varsity seasons rst at Lafayette in 2016 and then at Hamilton County in 2017 Scar borough completed 128 of 233 passes (57 percent) for 1,821 yards. He threw 14 touchdown passes to eight interceptions. Scarborough helped the Hornets achieve an 8-3 record in his junior year, which included a memora ble last-second win against Jefferson County. Down by ve points with less than two minutes remaining in the game, he took Lafayette down the eld in a no-hud dle offense and threw the game-winning touchdown with less than a second left. Ive been coaching for 26 years, and we had one of the single greatest mo ments ever at a time when we really needed it, La fayette coach Joey Pearson said of the win. Jefferson County game 93 yards in a minute and a half and we score on the last play. That was a great night. Also at the signing was Seth Stebbins, who coached Scarborough at HCHS. Alex and I have a pretty long history, said Steb bins, who also coached Scarborough while they were at Suwannee. I al ways have a good time with Alex. We talk about living the dream. Thats the good thing about today hes going to get to contin ue to play football, get an education, grow more as a young man by getting away from home a little bit and being on his own. Illinois College has an enrollment of around 1,000 students and competes at the Division III level. The football team had a 5-5 re cord in 2017. nnn rfnt nnnfn Penn State will be headed to New York next week and a former Suwannee High has helped the Nittany Lions get there. Penn State guard Jamari Wheeler, who rst attended SHS and graduated from The Rock (Gainesville), is averaging two points, two rebounds and 1.3 steals per game in his freshman season. He and the Nittany Lions have advanced to a semi nal in the NIT Tournament and will face Mississippi State on Tuesday at Madison Square Garden. University of Florida forward/center Kevarrius Hayes recently nished his junior season. He averaged ve points and ve rebounds per game for the Gators, who went 21-13 and were knocked out in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. He started in 25 games this season.
