According to Superintendent Ted Roush, Principal Gary Caldwell has been reassigned to special projects under the direction of Assistant Super intendent Bill Brothers. The projects Caldwell works on will change as he completes them. Through a lot of conversation with Caldwell, it is the best thing for him and the Suwannee Intermediate School, Roush said. SIS assistant principal Jennifer Beach will serve as the interim prin cipal for the remainder of the school year. Beachs position will not be lled. Dean of Students Joe Eakins will as sist Beach. We will continue to evaluate the progress of the school from now until the end of the year and make some decisions, Roush said. He added that he believes Caldwell will benet from the reassignment. t rb Walk for Christ returns Saturday LIVE OAK Rain or shine, Bud Smith is expecting a crowd to Walk for Christ on Saturday morning. The fth annual walk/ride will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday at Langford Stadium. We expect several thou sand, said Smith, the events organizer. The rst one I think we had a little over 3,000. It just depends on the weather. But I look for us to have a couple thousand peo ple.Even in the rain, we had over a thousand. That crowd should stay dry, currently there is a 10 percent chance of rain Satur day morning. Those thousands of partici pants will come ready to walk or ride in golf carts, buses, cars and trucks, Smith said, adding that Westwood Baptist Church will have a bus that will follow the marchers as well as one from Dowling Park. The walk, which will also end at the stadium after walking up Parshley Street before turning onto Ohio Av enue and then Howard Street and Houston Avenue, will last less than an hour. The event is a non-spon sored, non-denominational walk for Christ. People from surrounding towns in Georgia and Florida are also invited to participate. Following the walk, a gos pel sing featuring talented local singers will take place at the stadium. r n rrr fr f tr jessie.box@ganews.com LIVE OAK The Suwannee County Fair has barely concluded, but organizers are already looking ahead to the 104th annual event. Open from March 16 through Satur rfnt b jamie.wachter@ganews.com LIVE OAK According to Len Stapleton, Team Stapleton got a little lucky Saturday morning. But after three wins in three rac es during The Arc North Floridas 20th annual Lawn Mower Race, perhaps Team Stapleton was more good than lucky. While crediting the success to luck, Stapleton did admit to some strategy and competitiveness help ing the four-man team that also included Ronnie Skinner, Buddy Williams and Eric Williams. We got here and looked at a little strategy and talked about who we thought would do best at each event, at that station, he said about the ve pit stops set up along the oval race course that included having to attach nuts and washers to a bolt while wearing linemans gloves, wrap up a roll of quarters, draw a house, make a paper clip chain and nally hammer a nail into a block of wood.

Studies reveal that Florida is actually the No. 1 state in the country for retirement living, with around 55,000 Americans age 55 and older moving to Florida every year. In fact, 19 percent of the population in Florida is above age 65. For those who seek a warm climate, affordable housing and a lower cost of living plus plenty of social opportunities and fun area attractions retirement in Florida is the perfect choice. North Florida: The perfect choice for seniors North Florida in particular is a great region for seniors. It is com prised of the top half of the state, including the Panhandle. Cities like Live Oak in Suwannee County offer small-town charm in a quiet atmo sphere with plenty of things to do and see. What are the main reasons seniors chose Florida for retirement living? Here are just a few: Lower cost of living and taxes. A lower cost of living entices many seniors to the state of Florida, where theres also no state income tax. Re tirement income and Social Security benets are not taxed, either, nor are there estate or inheritance taxes. An escape from cold winters. The year-round warmth makes moving to Florida highly appealing to seniors who have grown tired of frigid win ters. This means that most outdoor activities and social opportunities can continue throughout the year, and you can leave your puffy winter coat buried deep in the closet or do nate it to your friends in the northern states! A light jacket is enough for most winter days. A variety of activities for every one. The temperate climate makes it easy to enjoy a variety of activities, both outdoors and indoors. Get some enjoyable exercise by playing golf or tennis, go hiking or canoeing along any of the many beautiful rivers, vis it a local museum or theater, or en joy a night of music, dance or drama (perhaps as part of Advent Christian Villages Live! at Dowling Park art ist series). Theres truly something for every lifestyle in North Florida. Plenty of quality health care. Youll nd plenty of area hospitals and medical facilities to support your health care needs. In fact, Copeland Clinic, located at Advent Christian Village, is a public health clinic open to men and women of all ages living in North Florida. Not only does the staff at Copeland Clinic provide quality medical care, but they also team up with specialized care centers, doctors and specialists in various elds to provide the high est level of care possible. Community living for a carefree lifestyle. Downsizing offers denite benets to older adults, and moving to a North Florida retirement com munity provides a true way to suc cessfully age in place. Retirees will be relieved of many of the burdens of home maintenance, enjoy a higher level of independence, and delight in plenty of options to stay engaged physically, mentally and socially. Advent Christian Village: Senior living in North Florida Those thinking about moving to Florida should consider the lifestyle offered at Advent Christian Village. The North Florida senior living com munity offers a compassionate con tinuum of care with a hometown feel.

She was drawn to the natural beauty and open green spaces of the area. She loved the fact that it had low trafc but was within 1 hours from metropolitan areas like Tallahassee, Valdosta, Jackson ville and Gainesville. Since she was single, she start ed looking for community events and organizations with which to get involved. Disappointingly, the downtown area lacked places to eat and shop. When friends and family came to visit and see her new home, she scurried to nd alternatives to shopping and dining venues. As a result, she cooked out on her grill and she took them kayaking or to the Spirit of the Suwannee Mu sic Park to listen to music. Because she wanted to have a more vibrant downtown, the girl started attending meet ings of the Live Oak Partnership. Similar to a downtown merchants association, this was a group of interested citizens, business owners and city ofcials. This group of volunteers initiated and organized events like the Scare crow Festival, the Chocolate Festival, Junebug and Flea Across Florida. This group also pushed for a Community Redevelopment Agency Director, someone who could focus solely on the efforts of the CRA District. The girl started helping with little projects like banners on the light posts, events to bring citizens downtown, and pro viding support for the welcome signage at four entrances into the city. The group was successful in getting a parttime CRA Director. The girl got more involved and put on a bus tour to see how other CRAs nearby leveraged grants with matching funds. The girl was then successful in getting a grant to look at walkability downtown, branding and how to at tract businesses on main street. The girl saw challenges within the community, namely Tropical Storm Debby who dumped eight feet of water downtown. When she saw Jim Cantore from the Weather Channel come to town, she knew that was not a good sign. She saw sink holes open one block north of U.S. 90. Buildings had to be evacuated and eventually demol ished. The girl began to see different groups working together. Live Oak City Hall and the Board of County Commissioners hired an Economic Development Di rector. The girl felt hope. Hope that people were seeing some of the amazing qualities that the area held. She also started hearing people, when presented with an idea, ask How can we make this happen? Success built on success. The CRA projects began to get much larger in scope: 90) with Heritage Park and Gardens to encourage walk ability of the community. to spruce up downtown. Then, a county commissioner started talking to DOT about lighting in the intersection of Hwy. 129 and I-10. The Small Business Development Center decided to locate an agribusiness consultant at the Chamber of Com merce. Business started moving back into downtown. There is a plan to develop Heritage Square behind the Passenger Railroad Depot downtown. Now, the girl is excited to show off her community to visitors. When she is shopping locally, if she overhears that someone is just visiting, she encourages them to try local eateries and makes suggestions of attractions to see (State Park or programs at the library or Friends of Concert series) and shares shops to visit. The story does not end here. There is still much to do. Folks looking to have business conferences need a place to host such functions. Our strong agricultural base makes us a perfect venue for agri-tourism. We still need to address housing and the importance of quality educa tion and training. Transportation and specialized medical care continue to be a need within the community. But, Suwannee County is a real LIVE story of change. It can happen-even in economically-challenged, rural neighborhoods like ours. It happens when people get in volved, ask questions and volunteer. If we come together in the spirit of hope and focus on the things we agree on rather than on the things we dont, we can make the story of the girl have a happy ending. Katherine Allen is the County Extension Director for the UF/IFAS Extension Ofce in Suwannee County, an Equal Opportunity Institution, located at 1302 11th St. SW in Live Oak, Florida, next to the Suwannee County Coliseum.

They were married in July 2016. They very much enjoy spending time together and getting to know each other better. Theyre much like any other typical newlywed couple. Except that theyre both in their 80s. Bill was married to his rst wife for 49 years. They had a happy mar riage, just the two of them living in Massachusetts. Bill had been a lumber salesman. Patty was married to her rst husband for almost 42 years. The couple had three children and Patty now has four grandchil dren. Outside the home, Patty did secretarial work. In 1997, after her hus band died, Patty was encouraged to move to Advent Christian Village. She was familiar with the community having grown up in the Advent Christian faith and being an Advent Christian pastors wife. In fact, the couple had planned to move to ACV together in their retire ment. In May of that year, Patty made it her home. Bills wife died in 2011. After living one year by himself, he contacted a friend in Florida about helping him nd a new place to live in Florida. The friend told him to come to Dowling Park. In 2013, Bill moved into a rental home at Advent Christian Village. About a year after moving to ACV, Bill was sitting in the Lopin Gopher, one of ACVs dining choices, when Patty walked by. Bills reaction? I said, Wow! Bill didnt waste time and asked Patty to attend the Sunday evening church service with him. Unfor tunately, she said no. Bill was undaunted. Soon after, he asked Patty to accom pany him to a dedication service at the church for artwork which had been donated. This time, Patty agreed, and the couple went out on their rst date. After a relatively short courtship, Bill wanted to ask Patty to marry him. But he wanted a place for them both to live rst, so he bought a house in River Woods, ACVs home ownership neighborhood. As soon as the house was his, he proposed. I al ready had the house, so she couldnt say no, Bill laughed. And, she didnt say no. They told their families and set a date for their I-dos two weeks later. All the family gath ered at the church where Pattys son is pastor: Berea Advent Christian Church in Smoaks, S.C. Pattys son performed the cere mony, and it was a lovely day: July 17, 2016. Its not often that newly weds are asked for marital advice, but when the two have almost 100 years of marriage experience between them, it makes sense. Bill and Patty dont have a lot of advice, but what they give covers a lot of ground: Be kind to each other, and take an interest in each others interests, they say togeth er. If you can remember to think of the other per son, youre all set, they agree. The Davies enjoy eating out and spending time in Palm Beach, where they stay at a friends condo. Bill works as the As sistant Custodian at The Village Church. He used to volunteer in several areas around ACV, but this position now takes up his free time. Patty helps Bill as much as she can, is a greeter at church, and has a special gift for personally ministering to others through kind words and prayer. Its no wonder these two found each other and were able to start a brand new loving relationship theyre both thoughtful and caring two ingredients for building a long-lasting, healthy relationship. rfntb rf ntb United Way, community organizations seek to spread CPR knowledge LIVE OAK Learn CPR and save lives. United Way of Suwannee Valley is partnering with various organizations throughout Columbia, Hamilton, Lafayette and Suwannee counties to provide CPR classes to local resi dents. The program is one of several initiatives the United Way Planning Committee elected to undertake us ing funds received through an anony mous grant. The Planning Committee determined to direct grant funding to support initiatives designed to address goals in the County Heath Improvement Plans. CPR Anytime is a self-directed, self-paced training program that provides participants with the core skills of adult hands-only CPR in 22 minutes. United Way purchased 113 CPR Anytime kits to be distributed among 20 different organizations within the four counties. Participating community organizations include se nior service centers, county extension ofce 4-H programs, the Pregnancy Care Center, Suwannee Valley 4Cs Head Start Program and churches in each of the four counties. Each kit comes with a bilingual watch-and-do DVD, a personal inatable CPR manikin, a skills reminder card, a replacement lung and manikin wipes. The kits are being used to educate members of the organizations who, in turn, will teach other organization participants, family members and friends in their communities. According to the Florida Depart ment of Health Health, Billions of dollars are spent every year in the U.S. on medications that reduce the risk of heart disease the No.1 kill er in Florida. Heart disease accounts for three out of 10 deaths in Florida, and in 2014 there were 42,835 heart attack hospitalizations, or an average of 117 heart attack hospitalizations each day. The CPR Anytime initiative sup ports the American Heart Associa tion goal to increase the number of individuals in the U.S. with skills needed to perform CPR. CPR Any time is exible in that it can be used by individuals at home or multiple people in a small group setting. It is innovative; the proven-effective, self-directed watch-and-do format keeps people engaged in learning. It is effective, because kits are easy to share with family members and friends to increase the number of people who can perform CPR in an emergency. CPR Anytime is for anyone who wants to learn basic CPR skills, choking relief and AED awareness and does not need a course comple tion card to meet a job requirement. A listing of those community part ners which have already initiated their CPR Anytime program through their receipt of training and the train ing kits is available on the United Way of Suwannee Valley website at www.unitedwsv.org. United Way ghts for the health, education and nancial stability of every person through community im pact and fundraising efforts utilizing volunteers on all levels to advance the common good by identifying un met community needs and seeking to alleviate those needs through United Way of Suwannee Valley initiatives and the funding of local, afliated health and human service agencies. rfntb bttnr tbbtt tr ftbbttt ttttn rtfnb tftbtb btbtt rftnn LIVE OAK Antioch Baptist Church welcomes the community to join in a week end of Easter celebration.

SEE TARIFFS, PAGE 9A There were so many exciting things going on in our area this past week end. The county fair was nishing up, there was a beer and wine festival in Columbia County, and the Spring Re union festival was taking place at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park. One of my favorite things about going to a festival at the Spirit of the Su wannee is the interesting people you meet from all around the state and the country. This week I will be telling you about some of the interesting people I met. I will only be using rst names in case some of these people told their boss or their spouse they were somewhere else this weekend. I met many people from other areas who were coming to an event in Suwannee for the rst time. Stan and Katie, from Jacksonville, were rst timers at the SOS Park. Their friend Adam has been inviting them to come join him for years, and they nally decided to try it. They were in a very festive mood because it was Katies birthday. Adam said he loved the laid-back atmosphere, and Katie enjoyed seeing so many families with kids in attendance. I got the feeling they would be coming back for other events. On the other end of the experience spectrum, was Bean from Tampa. He has been coming to the SOS Park since 1999. He loved the venue so much he got married at the Magnolia Festival in 2000. I asked Bean what he likes so much about the Spirit of the Suwannee he said, every thing. He said he has enjoyed sharing his passion for art with others at the many kids art camps he has attended over the years. Jim and Linda, from West Virginia, had an amazing plan for this weekend. They trailered their Harleys down and planned to ride all day and listen to music all night. The couple was blessed with a perfect day for riding on Saturday. I drove down to the south end of the county to jump in the river, and the sky was blue, the air was warm, and everything looked so green from our recent rains. Near Luraville, I talked to Mike from the Jacksonville area. He is in the process of having a house built on the Suwannee River. He is looking forward to the slower pace of life in our county compared to the east coast of Florida. I met Eric who is originally from New Hampshire, but now lives in Perry. He loves coming to the SOS Park because he gets to be surrounded by people from diverse backgrounds. He feels that many of these people would never meet if it were not for the Spirit of the Suwannee. It is hard to disagree with him. I had not met a banjo play er until this past Saturday night. George from the band Grandpas Cough Medicine said he loves it here because of the people who love all types of music. George had his banjo with him and he played us all a few songs before saying goodbye. One of the greatest things about our country is that you are free to live, work, and play wherever you would like. I am so glad that so many people are choosing Suwannee County as their weekend destination. Be kind to our week end visitors; some of them will end up being our neigh bors. Eric lives in Suwannee County and is a public school educator. He is an independent contractor. You can reach him at miamistyle8@gmail.com. Opinion SERVING SUWANNEE COUNTY SINCE 1884 A PAGE 6 rfrfnftrbfbf ftfrrbfbf You never know whom you might meet in Suwannee County Heres a question for you: In 1950, would it have been possible for anyone to know all of the goods and services that we would have at our disposal 50 years later? For example, who would have thought that wed have cellphones, Bluetooth technology, small powerful com puters, LASIK and airplanes with 525-passenger seating capacity? This list could be extended to include thousands of goods and services that could not have been thought of in 1950. In the face of this gross human ignorance, who should be in control of precursor goods and services? Seeing as its impossible for anyone to predict the future, any kind of governmental regulation should be extremely light-handed, so as not to sabotage technological advance ment. Compounding our ignorance is the fact that much of what we think we know is not true. Scientometrics is the study of measuring and analyzing science, technology and innovation. It holds that many of the facts you know have a half-life of about 50 years. Lets look at a few ex amples. You probably learned that Pluto is a planet. But since August 2006, Pluto has been considered a dwarf planet. Its just another object in the Kuiper belt. Because dinosaurs were seen as members of the class Reptilia, they were thought to be coldblooded. But recent research suggests that dinosaurs were fast-metabolizing endotherms whose activities were unconstrained by tem perature. Years ago, experts argued that increased K-12 spending and lower pupil-teacher ratios would boost students ac ademic performance. It turned out that some of the worst academic performance has been at schools spending the most money and having the smallest class sizes. Wash ington, D.C., spends more than $29,000 per student every year, and the teacher-student ratio is 1-to-13; however, its students are among the nations poorest-performing pupils. At one time, astronomers considered the size limit for a star to be 150 times the mass of our sun. But recently, a star (R136a1) was discovered that is 265 times the mass of our sun and had a birth weight that was 320 times that of our sun. If you graduated from medical school in 1950, about half of what you learned is either wrong or outdated. For an interesting story on all this, check out Reason magazine (http://tinyurl.com/ydalh37g). Ignorance can be devastating. Say that you recently purchased a house. Was it the best deal you could have gotten? Was there some other house within your budget that would have needed fewer extensive repairs 10 years later and had more likable neighbors and a better and safer environment for your children? What about the person you married? Was there another person available to you who would have made for a more pleasing and compatible spouse? Though these are important questions, the most intelligent answer you can give to all of them is: I dont know. If you dont know, who should be in charge of making those decisions? Would you delegate the respon sibility to Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Donald Trump, Ben Carson or some other national or state ofcial? You might say, Stop it, Williams! Congressmen and other public ofcials are not making such monumental decisions affecting my life. Try this. Suppose you are a 22-year-old healthy person. Rather than be forced to spend $3,000 a year for health insurance and have $7,000 de ducted from your salary for Social Security, youd prefer investing that money to buy equipment to start a landscap ing business. Which would be the best use of the $10,000 you earned purchasing health insurance and paying into Social Security or starting up a landscaping business? More importantly, who would be better able to make that decision you or members of the United States Con gress? The bottom line is that ignorance is omnipresent. The worst kind of ignorance is not knowing just how ignorant we are. That leads to the devastating pretense of knowl edge thats part and parcel of the vision of intellectual elites and politicians.

Now it seems our own business newspaper printing and publishing will take some casual ties in a trade war over paper. This month, the U.S. government piled huge tariffs onto the imports of newsprint from Canada, including those from our biggest supplier. As a re sult, the price will jump from $600 to $800 for ev ery ton, and we use about 17,000 tons every year. That increase is more than 30 percent, and would add more than $3 million to the Tampa Bay Times annual newsprint bill. You can multiply our example across the Amer ican newspaper industry, which is already facing strong headwinds. Historically, advertising provid ed the lions share of newspaper revenue, but in just 10 years, the recession and other market forc es have cut those ad revenues by more than half. Newspapers remain vital civic assets nobody else will report on your community with the depth and breadth of a newspaper but publishing them is not an easy business, and these tariffs will make it even harder. This is a kick in the teeth. These tariffs will hurt our readers, because they create pressure to raise our prices, and they will force publishers to re-examine every other expense. Maybe we will drop some puzzles and comics no big deal, unless we cut one that is your favorite. These tariffs will also hurt our employees, be cause payroll is the only expense that is bigger than newsprint. To help offset the extra expense of paper, publishers will eliminate jobs. Make no Tariffs on paper will hurt us, and our readers fntbbfn tbbbttbb bt ttbnb nbbb

None of us like to think about a time when we may not be able to make de cisions for ourselves. We may never face this, but it is still important to plan ahead for the possibility. We carry health insurance even though we dont want to get sick. In the same way, it is important to have an ofcial plan in place in the event our reasoning or ability to communicate may become impaired. A Power of Attorney (POA) is an important legal tool that protects you if you are not able to act in your own best interest. When you sign a Durable Power of Attorney (DPOA) document, you have assigned an agent who will act in your place if you are incapacitat ed. Without it, no one can act legally on your behalf without going through a court process. This means your loved ones cannot pay bills, deal with insur ances, manage assets or even le taxes for you when you are unable to do so. The impairment does not have to be a permanent disability; it could be short term, as with a medically induced coma or confusion caused by medication. There are two types of power of attor ney: 1. Healthcare POA: This person is limited to making medical decisions on your behalf when you are unable to speak for yourself. This is also called Healthcare Surrogate. 2. Financial POA: This person can make legal and nancial decisions on your behalf when you are unable. These are generally two different doc uments and it is important to have both. The remainder of this article will deal with the nancial DPOA. A Power of Attorney grants author ity as long as the signer is able to act on his or her own behalf. Its authority ends when the signer is incapacitated. A Durable Power of Attorney remains valid and in effect even if you become incapacitated and unable to make deci sions for yourself. If a power of attorney document does not clearly say that the power is durable, it ends if you become incapacitated. It is a good idea for every adult to have a DPOA, and especially important to sign this document before any impair ment occurs. For example, in the late stages of Alzheimers, the person may no longer be of sound mind and will be unable to appoint their representative. One will be appointed for them by a court, and it may not be the person they would have chosen. Neither healthcare nor nancial POAs go into effect until the person is incapac itated. Therefore, if you sign a DPOA today, you continue to make your own decisions unless you become incapaci tated. Likewise, if your impairment is temporary, once you have recovered you make your own deci sions again. You can determine the scope of author ity you are giving your DPOA. For ex ample, you may grant only the authority to pay bills or sell certain assets. On the other hand, you could grant authority over all nancial decisions, including selling the family home, managing all assets, and dealing with the IRS. Some people dread signing a DPOA because they feel that it means they are losing their independence. In reality, the document does not determine a persons independence. It simply allows them to choose who can act for them if ever they cannot act for themselves. Another com mon fear is that the agent they appoint may go against their wishes. That is why the decision should be made wisely. The choice of a DPOA should be someone you trust someone to whom you would hand your checkbook today. It should also be someone who could stand up to others who may disagree with their decisions on your behalf. You should always tell the person you choose that you have done so. Also, discuss your wishes with this person and tell them the scope of the responsibility you are granting. The DPOA document can be changed or revoked at any time, as long as the person who signed it is com petent. Otherwise, it stays in force until the signer dies. It does not grant authori ty after death. If you have been asked to be DPOA for someone, learn all you can now about how this person would want their affairs handled. If that day ever comes, be sure you honor their choice by acting according their wishes and not your own preferences. To learn more about the durable pow er of attorney, speak with a lawyer who has expertise in estate planning.

Should you eat potatoes? What about bread? Is it OK to eat fruit? There is one thing though that all of these programs have in common and probably the most important healthy eating tip you need to know. Healthy or clean eating can be confusing for many of us. Our doc tors tell us to eat healthy. Magazines tell us clean eating is the way to go. But what exactly do those terms mean? Before you decide to give up, lets clear up some of the confusion with one simple but important tip. Ready? Eat less sugar. You expect to nd sugar in can dy or cookies but sugar, especially processed sugar such as white sugar, fructose, glucose, is in foods you would never expect. The rst time I looked at the ingredients in sal ad dressing and read sugar, I was speechless. Its in ketchup, cereals, and bread which makes sugar public enemy No. 1. Did you know there is a chocolate chip energy bar mar keted as organic that actually has 2 grams more sugar than a Snickers candy bar? Sugar is not all bad though. In its natural state in fruit or vegetables, it help our bodies function. It is the added sugar you have to watch out for. Not only can sugar lead to major weight gain, it shoots your insulin levels up which can lead to other serious diseases. Do I have your at tention now? Its time to get control of that sweet tooth once and for all. These two simple tips will help you cut back on sugar: cook your own meals, you know EX ACTLY what ingredients you are us ing. If you dont cook from scratch, take your time and read the labels of everything you put into your shop ping cart. change before making another. For example, instead of cutting out your weekly dessert, eat half. Love soda and sweet tea? Have some but only drink half a glass instead of a full glass. As you do this your body will become accustomed to less sugar. Take it nice and slow. The best thing Ill always be able to make my own decisions wont I? Church News LIVE OAK Covenant First Presbyterian Church invites the community to A Service of Darkness on Good Friday, March 30, at 7:30 p.m. The service entitled, Hear Us, Holy Jesus, is by Douglas E. Wagner. Bill Poplin will be direct ing the 24-voice choir. There will be scripture readings, congregational responses, and choral med itations. After each medi tation the sanctuary will be darkened a little. The Tenebrae Service dates from the 6th century. It is a dramatic service to remember the death and passion of Jesus Christ. The literal translation of the Latin word, tenebrae is shadows; thus the service moves from light to darkness. In the early church it was celebrated on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of Holy Week. The purpose of the Ten ebrae Service is to help us focus on the total impact of the darkest day in the history of Christianity, the day that Jesus died on the cross. The service is in complete contrast to Eas ter. The mood is what the followers of Jesus felt on the Friday long ago: shock, despair, gloom, grief and sadness; however, at the close of the service, the Christ candle returns as a sign of hope. The Good Friday service is designed to encourage the congregation to consid er how their lives should reect the historical and spiritual event. This will be purely a service of reection. There is no admission charge and no offering will be taken. For more information, call 386-365-4932. Covenant First Presbyterian hosting A Service of Darkness

There were also plen ty of livestock and animal shows and exhibits as well. Tim Alcorn, fair pres ident, said the fair ran smoothly this year. We had the one night of rain but other than that ev erything went smooth and we had good attendance, Alcorn said. One change to the fair this year was the sale of rafe tickets for one lucky winner to have a chance to drive a car in the demoli tion derby. Len Stapleton was the winner in the raf e, which raised money for Love INC. The demolition derby was a smash, Alcorn said. He said there was more than 3,400 people that attended the night of the derby. I think it was a hit, Al corn said. Alcorn and the Suwan nee County Fair Board members would like to thank the community and volunteers for their support of the fair. We are ready for the 104th Suwannee County Fair, Alcorn said. Alcorn said if anyone is interested in volunteering next year, call 386-3623247. Continued From Page 1A Organizers worked out. It kept us out front. Team Stapleton indeed spent most of its time out in front of both the three-team preliminary race that also included teams from Suwan nee County Fire Rescue and the Jordan Agency, as well as the championship race that also featured Suwannee County Elected Ofcials and the Suwannee County School Board. The Suwan nee County Tax Collectors Ofce also had a team in the annual race. But even being out front didnt keep a team or its mower in the clear. With racers having to pull over for the pit stops, other racers routinely would cut off the parked mowers. That usually just led to a swap of mowers, which were all provided by Johns Lawn Equipment, which also host ed the fundraising event. Theyll cut you off, said Stapleton, who was racing for the rst time. Theres some strategy from years past from people that have run it. Youve got people that have run it and they know, turn the lawnmower off, cut you off, block you. Theyre bumping and bang ing. It was all in good fun. It was also good compe tition. With more pit stops than team members, every team had at least one member make two trips around the track. During the prelimi nary, SCFR assistant chief Eddie Hand took two turns in a row without stopping to change drivers in an attempt to get out in front. That almost had the team disqualied before an appeal got the reghters a race-off. Public Safety Director James Sommers said, with a smile, after the race that it was not in the rulebook. SCFR nished second in the team competition. I was just a shaking, Stapleton said after the win. Everybody is just trying to do the best they can. It was fun and competitive. Fire Rescue and all the other teams that were out here, were all good friends within the community and trying to help out and sup port things. Thats my big gest thing. All these people you see today, thats what its about for them too. That made The Arc the biggest winners Saturday. Administrative and Finance Director Tricia Williams said the event raised close to $8,000 for the non-prot agency that provides advo cacy and services to individ uals with an intellectual and/ or physical disability. Wil liams said The Arc thanked all the events sponsors for making the race possible. Today was beautiful weather, good outcome, said Beverly Standridge, executive director of The Arc. Lots of racers and they had lots of fun. This was our 20th year doing this race and it just brings the community together. We actually had elected ofcials against each other, competition. I just wish everybody would come every year and enjoy the team effect that we have. Stapleton, who is running for a spot on the county commission, agreed. We just had the opportu nity to get in the event and its just a great thing for the community, he said. We just thought there was no better way to get out and meet people and support the community. I just want people to see that were in volved, whatever we can do to help and support, thats what were about. Its not about just one day a year going out and trying to get elected, its about what youre doing every day for Suwannee County and Live Oak. Theres just hundreds, thousands of people that re ally want to help Suwannee County, he said. Doing something every week, somebody is giving their time to do something. That just means a lot to me. Continued From Page 1A Fun mistake: These tariffs will cause layoffs across Amer ican newspapers, including this one. These tariffs started with a single American newsprint manufacturer who complained that Ca nadian companies were dumping their product in the U.S. at below-market prices. In the current polit ical climate, that complaint found a friendly ear in Washington. Other American man ufacturers opposed these tariffs because they know they will damage news papers and reduce the demand for newsprint. But now that the tariffs are taking effect, the American companies are hiking their own prices, so we have lit tle room to shop around. Just about every Ameri can newspaper and all our trade associations are join ing the ght to challenge these tariffs, but even if we succeed, it will take months to reverse this ter rible decision. Meanwhile, prices will go up. Jobs will be lost. Important stories will go uncovered. If you believe that news papers do essential work, we would be grateful for your support. Please let your members of Congress and senators know that these reckless tariffs must be repealed not just because they hurt newspa pers, but because they will damage the customers and communities we serve. Thank you for hearing us out. Paul C. Tash is the chairman and CEO of the Times Publishing Com pany. Continued From Page 6A Tariffs r fntb tr tftt t r

Morrill pitched a gem what he called the best start of his career to lift the Bulldogs to a 2-0 district win. He needed just 70 pitches to throw a complete game with 12 strikeouts. Hueston put the team on his back and basically proved he wasnt going to lose, said SHS coach Justin Bruce. He controlled the game from start to nish. Its a good win for him and a good win for the team. After giving up two hits in the rst inning and getting out of a tough spot with runners in scoring position and one out, Morrill dominated the rest of the game. He faced just 19 hitters one over the minimum in the nal six innings. This was the game I was supposed to show leadership, Morrill said. That was my big start. First inning was a little bumpy, but after I got out of the jam I found my fastball and my break ing ball.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 28, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 4B third inning with Josh Wharton leading the way. Whartons double to the gap in right-center eld was Suwannees rst hit of the game. Two batters later, he came in to score when Nolan Miller singled. After beginning the season as a starter, Wharton lost that starting position. But he made the most of his opportunity on Friday. He got SHS going on of fense and also made a great play on defense in the second inning, diving to his right to snag a ground ball and start a 4-6-3 double play. Hats off to him for waiting his time, never getting mad. When he got his opportunity, he did the best of it, Bruce said of Wharton. Josh helped us out big. SHS added an important insurance run in the fth inning to gain a 2-0 lead. With one out in the inning, Morrill walked and then stole second base. He moved over to third on a groundout and then scored on Bo Bonds ineld sin gle. With the win, Suwannee moves to 6-6 overall and 1-1 in district play. Baker County (9-4) is also 1-1 in the district. For us to ght back after a hard night, thats what you want to see as a coach, Bruce said. You want to know your guys have some ght.

Morrill pitched a gem what he called the best start of his career to lift the Bulldogs to a 2-0 district win. He needed just 70 pitches to throw a complete game with 12 strikeouts. Hueston put the team on his back and basically proved he wasn't going to lose, said SHS coach Justin Bruce. He controlled the game from start to finish. Its a good win for him and a good win for the team. After giving up two hits in the first inning and getting out of a tough spot with runners in scoring position and one out, Morrill dominated the rest of the game. He faced just 19 hitters one over the minimum in the final six innings. This was the game I was supposed to show leadership, Morrill said. That was my big start. First inning was a little bumpy, but after I got out of the jam I found my fastball and my breaking ball. I was able to get ahead with my breaking ball and get ks with my fastball. The Bulldogs took a 1-0 lead in the third inning with Josh Wharton leading the way. Whartons double to the gap in right-center field was Suwannees first hit of the game. Two batters later, he came in to score when Nolan Miller singled. After beginning the season as a starter, Wharton lost that starting position. But he made the most of his opportunity on Friday. He got SHS going on offense and also made a great play on defense in the second inning, diving to his right to snag a ground ball and start a 4-6-3 double play. Hats off to him for waiting his time, never getting mad. When he got his opportunity, he did the best of it, Bruce said of Wharton. Josh helped us out big. SHS added an important insurance run in the fifth inning to gain a 2-0 lead. With one out in the inning, Morrill walked and then stole second base. He moved over to third on a groundout and then scored on Bo Bonds infield single. With the win, Suwannee moves to 6-6 overall and 1-1 in district play. Baker County (9-4) is also 1-1 in the district. For us to fight back after a hard night, thats what you want to see as a coach, Bruce said. You want to know your guys have some fight.
