Since 2009 he has tutored more than 70 students and is cur rently tutoring seven in math. Most of his students need help in Alge bra 1 and 2. I dont believe math is really hard, Watts said. I think the reason most stu dents who are having trouble and dont like math, is because they cant do it.

Celebration of Everetts life planned for Sunday LIVE OAK Save the Cats of Live Oak founder Barney Ever ett, of McAlpin, lost his 18-month-long ght with cancer on Tuesday, Feb. 20. Everett was born in Memphis, Tenn., and moved to Orlando in 1966 where he raised a family with Sherry and worked as a real estate broker and businessman until he re tired to Live Oak in 2007. Everett and his wife, Sher ry, owned and operated Big Wheel Marketplace in downtown Live Oak until 2017. Founded in 2010 as a non-prot, Save the Cats has been instrumental in spay, neuter and vaccina tion of more than 1,300 cats and kittens and has found good indoor homes for more than 40 adoptable cats and kittens. One of Everetts most recent accomplishments from April 2014 to October 2017 included the transport of more than 952 cats and kittens for spay or neuter, vaccinations and left ear tips for trap, neuter re turn of neglected, unsocial ized cats. The impact from this project alone was of huge signicance. Because if just half of the cats altered were females and each female had only one litter of six kittens their entire lifetime, more than 2,856 unwanted kittens would have been born in Su wannee and Lafayette counties. Everett truly believed that spay and neuter is good for the cats and the community, and the only humane way to reduce the needless killing of healthy cats. Spay and neuter also reduces the putting to death and saves the lives of healthy puppies and dogs in county shelters. The Save the Cats organization continues thru donations and volunteer efforts. There is a rescue housing cats awaiting adoption, and A Fixed Community Cat Feeding Program that will need more volunteers willing to donate food, work togeth er to feed the cats daily and continue the trap, neuter and return of any new unaltered cats that wander to the colonies. Training in TNR will be provided. A needs list is provided on the website. A Celebration of Life will be held honoring Everett on Sunday, April 8 his birthday from 2-4 p.m. at First Baptist Church in Live Oak in the fellowship hall lo cated on West Howard Street, downtown. Please send no ow ers. Donations are welcome to Save the Cats and can be made on the website at www.savethecatsoiveo ak.net or by check to PO Box 124, McAlpin,Fla., 32062 or to Haven Hospice of Lake City.

FRIDAY, APRIL 6, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 3A Remembering Suwannee 65939-1 Dexter was largest slave owner in county Last week we began studying one of the early settlers of Suwannee County, Thom as Dexter. We complete that study today. Thomas Dexter, like many early settlers, was involved with a variety of govern ment positions and businesses. Dexter was listed as a merchant in Lake City in 1850, where he had a clerk by the name of John Adams working for him. The next year, Dexter was the best bidder in 1851 for Postal Delivery Route 3505 from Jackson ville to Alligator (now Lake City) twice a week. His bid of $1,371 for a 2-horse coach or $1,796 for a 4-horse coach was accepted by the Postal Service on April 14, 1851. It is unknown how long he ran the route. What is known is that Dexter was postmaster of Mineral Springs again between July 15, 1854, and May 31, 1855, when the post ofce there closed. On July 17, 1855, Dexter was appointed rst postmaster of St. Helena, a communi ty whose exact location is now lost. Odds are it was the same as Helena, a commu nity shown on maps of the late 1870s and early 1880s as being between Houston and Suwannee Springs south of the Pine Grove community. Dexter served as post master at St. Helena until at least June 30, 1861. On May 10, 1855, Dexter is listed in Jacksonvilles The Florida Republican as the Mineral Springs agent for Sea Is land cotton gins. Dexter is also listed as an agent in the November 29, 1856, edi tion of Jacksonvilles The Florida News. By the creation of Suwannee County in December 1858, Dexter was a wealthy and inuential mer chant. His plantation was located on White Springs Road and in cluded the location of the University of Flor idas IFAS Suwannee Valley Agricultural Extension Center; the nearby lake is ac tually named Dexter Lake. The Dexter plantation was really a small community in and of itself, providing everything the Dexter family needed. Beyond that, Dex ters mansion had the latest furniture, pur chased from abroad. As we review history, we nd that not everything is pleasant. The blight of slav ery, which affected all races and colors for thousands of years, lasted in the United States until the end of the Civil War in 1865. History records numerous great gures as being slave owners, including 12 American presidents (the last being Union general Ulysses S. Grant). Thomas Dexter was one of the many Americans who owned slaves during his lifetime. In Suwannee Countys rst Federal census in 1860, Thomas Dexter was listed as the largest slave owner in the County, with 53 slaves. During the 1930s, the Federal Gov ernment spread throughout the nation to record the histories of former slaves, and Claude Augustus Wilson was one of them. Claude was born on the plantation of Thomas Dexter, and although still a child when the Civil War ended, he was able to give details about his life on the Dex ter plantation. These details included the death of Thomas Dexter, which occurred on October 21, 1862, as a result of a cot ton gin re. A History of Columbia County, written by Edward F. Keuchel, discuss es part of the Slave Narratives: Claude Augustus Wilson was another Columbia countian who was born a slave. Wilson was born in 1857 on the plantation of Tom Dexter near Alligator. Dexter was a merchant as well as a large slave owner. Wilson regarded his master as a kindly man and thought Dexters alleged Yankee ancestry responsible. On the other hand the masters wife Mary Ann Dexter was a southerner and said to be just the opposite. Although Wilson was only eight years old when the slaves were freed he remembers the Dexter plantation as being a large op eration where the slaves worked under a driver from dawn to dusk. Wilson worked in the elds as a boy while his mother and sister worked in the Dexter mansion. Wilson stated that his mother was rebel lious and harassed the Missus until she was allowed to work in the elds so she could be near her manWilson recalled that Tom Dexter died from injuries caused from a gin house re. This was during the Civil War period, and the slaves were apprehensive over the thought of the hated mistress being in charge of the plantation. When peace came Mrs. Dexter informed the slaves that they could stay on the plan tation if they so desired and keep half of what they raised. None stayed. Claude Wilson discussed the death of Thomas Dexter in even greater detail in a portion of the Slave Narratives that Ed ward Keuchel did not quote. His master did not go to war but remained on the plantation. One day at noon during the war the gin house was seen to be are, one of the slaves rushed in and found the master badly burned and writhing in pain. He was taken from the building and given rst aid, but his body being burned in oil and so badly burned it burst open, thus ended the life of the kindly master of Claude. Thomas Dexter was buried in a location that has been lost to time (well, at least to my knowledge). It is possible that he was buried upon his own plantation. His wife Mary Ann died in 1893. Dexters de scendants continued to live in Suwannee County after his death, inuencing the community through the mid-1900s and beyond.

The revival will run from Wednesday through April 13 at the Greater AME Church, 608 Leslie Ave. NE in Live Oak, beginning at 7 p.m. each night. Its my life mission to encourage ev eryone I come in contact with, Tooten said. This is especially true of the people who in and around the community where I grew up. Our culture is in need of a word of encouragement. Its my hope the spring revival will go a long way toward accom plishing this goal. The revival, which began ve years ago after being organized by Tooten and his mother, Doris Tooten, will begin with the presentation of the inaugural Leading by Example Community award on Wednes day night. There are so many people in our community who possess leadership skills, Tooten added. Thats why I nd it difcult to select just one person for the Leading by Example award. I believe God continues to raise up a generation of leaders in our communi ties, our churches and our homes. Tooten is a Live Oak native and 1976 graduate of Suwannee High School. He is the pastor and founder of Harvest Christian Ministries in Baltimore Coun ty, Md. He is also an Emmy-Award winning broadcast education reporter at WBALTV, an NBC afliate. Wooten is also the author of the best-selling book, Lead ing by Example, a Parental Guide to Teaching and Modeling Christian Faith at home. Wooten will be signing copies of his book each night at the revival as well. He recently donated more than 250 copies of his book to families in Mom basa, Kenya. For more information about the reviv al, please contact Tooten at 443-4143029. rf LIVE OAK Tractor Supply Company is hosting a pet treat tasting event at its local store and the communi ty and its furry friends are invited.

Its common knowledge that honey bees pollinate flowers and help produce many important food crops, including such Florida mainstays as watermelon, squash, cucumber, blueberry and avocado. What isnt so well known is that other insects act as pollinators too butterflies, moths, wasps, even ants and beetles. This year, Bug Week is raising public awareness about all of Floridas pollinators. To see a few examples and learn what pollina tors do, check out the Bug of the Day and Bug Word of the Day posts on Twitter and Facebook through Saturday. Find them by searching for #UFBugs on Twitter and Facebook. Throughout Bug Week and the rest of the year, the faculty with UF/IFAS Extension Suwan nee County are ready to answer bug-related questions from local residents. Whether someone needs help attracting pollinators to their property, wants to identify an un familiar bug, or has to solve a pest problem around the house, there are science-based solutions available.

Thoset who have attended a con cert by the Lawson Ensemble, will be pleased to know they are returning to Live Oak on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. Those who have not heard these per formers are invited to the free concert at Covenant First Presbyterian Church, 421 White Avenue. For this concert, this delightful string trio will be joined by Dr. Erin Bennett, Associate Professor of Piano at the University of North Florida, and Dr. Randy Tinnin, Professor of Trumpet at the University of North Florida. The Lawson Ensemble was formed in 2015 as a result of group members desire to consistently perform chamber music with a level of excellence and commitment and to share the results with the Jacksonville and regional community. Founding members are violinist Aurica Duca, violinist/violist Clinton Dewing and cellist Nick Curry. The group is in residence at UNF in Jacksonville and performs regularly on the UNF campus and around the re gion. In the summer of 2016, the group toured and played concerts in England. Duca and Dewing are husband and wife and are both full-time members of the Jacksonville Symphony. Curry is the Associate Professor of Cello at UNF, where he teaches. His wife, Cara Tasher, is the Director of Choral Activ ities at UNF. The trio has been playing together for several years, but a generous do nation to the UNF music department last year allowed them to form an of cial ensemble and invite other gifted musicians to play with them for select programs. Curry, Dewing and Duca believe in the enduring power of cham ber music, the necessity for all music students to have a chamber experience, and the need for audiences to feel the immediacy, intimacy and beauty of the best chamber works. The public is invited to attend Tues day at Covenant First Prebyterian, Live Oak, at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free and a reception follows. tbnrnfrfrbfff bfrtfrnrr Achieving health equality in Suwannee County: A look at tobacco use disparities LIVE OAK The Florida Department of Healths To bacco Free Florida program and Tobacco Free Suwannee are launching a new initiative during the annual Tobacco Free Florida Week, April 2 8. The theme, Achieving Health Equity, raises awareness of to bacco-related health disparities throughout the state. During this week, Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT) youth will be sharing information through presen tations and will continue their Rock the Town campaign using painted rocks to share the Quitline number. More than 2.5 million adults in Florida are current cigarette smokers. In Suwannee County, 20 percent of adults are current cigarette smokers, which is higher than the statewide aver age of 15.5 percent. The health burden of tobacco use remains especially high among racial and ethnic minorities, low-in come individuals, and those with mental health conditions. Signicant progress has been made in lowering tobacco use, but addressing these dispropor tionately affected groups still using tobacco at higher rates is a top priority. For years, tobacco com panies have spent billions of dollars each year to market their products that appeal to more vulnerable and less fortunate populations. Smoking remains the leading cause of preventable death in Florida and the United States. Health communications, community and cessation inter ventions and youth prevention efforts are still needed to dis courage tobacco use initiation and counter social norms among subpopulations affected by to bacco-related disparities. Residents in Suwannee Coun ty can access Tobacco Free Floridas Quit Your Way pro gram for free tools and services to help them quit. More than 188,000 Floridians have suc cessfully quit tobacco using one of these free services. For more information, please visit tobac cofreeorida.com/quityourway.

Opinion SERVING SUWANNEE COUNTY SINCE 1884 A PAGE 6 rfrfnftrbfbf ftfrrbfbf Members of the Suwannee Democrat editorial board are Jeff Masters, Publisher, and Jamie Wachter, Editor. Masters and Wachter are joined on the board by community members Jim Holmes, Bruce Kemmerer and Otha White Sr. WASHINGTON After two years of stonewalling about its theft of Gerardo Serranos 2014 Ford F-250 pickup truck, the gov ernment suddenly returned it. It sparkled from having been washed and detailed, bumper to bumper, and it had four new tires and a new battery. The government probably hoped that, mollied by the trucks sprucing-up, Serrano would let bygones be bygones and go back to Kentucky. This was another mis take by our mistake-prone government. Assisted by litigators from the Institute for Justice (IJ), whose appearance on the West Texas horizon probably panicked the government into pretending to be law-abiding, Serrano wants to make the govern ment less larcenous and more constitutional when it is enriching itself through civil forfeiture. On Sept. 21, 2015, Serrano drove up to the Eagle Pass, Texas, border crossing, intending to try to in terest a Mexican cousin in expanding his solar panel installation business in the United States. To have me mentos of his trip, he took some pictures of the border with his cellphone camera, which annoyed two U.S. Custom and Border Protection (CBP) agents, who demanded the password to his phone. Serrano, who is what an American ought to be regarding his rights, prickly, refused to submit to such an unwarranted invasion of his privacy. One agent said he was sick of hearing about your rights and you have no rights here. So, they searched his truck this was unusual for a vehicle leaving the country and one agent ex claimed, We got him! Having found ve .380 caliber bullets in the trucks center console he has a concealed-carry permit but had no weapon with him they handcuffed him and seized his truck under civil forfeiture, saying it had been used to transport munitions of war. The next time someone warns about the potential for domestic abuse of supposed national security measures, do not dismiss him or her as a neurotic libertarian. Civil forfeiture is the power to seize property sus pected of being produced by, or involved in, crime. In this Through the Looking-Glass, guilty-until-prov en-innocent inversion, the propertys owners bear the burden of proving that they were not involved in such activity, which can be a costly and protracted process as persons must hire lawyers and do battle with a gov ernment wielding unlimited resources. Law enforce ment agencies get to keep the prots from forfeited property, which gives them an incentive to do what too many of them do abuse the process. But, then, the process punishment before a crime is proven is inherently abusive. The government seems mystied that Serrano will not leave bad enough alone, and drive away. It says he got his truck back after a mere 25 months, so there is no longer any case or controversy. Serrano says, let me count the ways I have been injured by thugs with badges. Before the government would deign to promise (falsely, it turned out) to give him due process to allow him to request a judicial hearing it extorted from Serrano a bond of 10 percent of the trucks value ($3,804.99). The government quickly cashed his check (not until the IJ cavalry rode in did he get his money back). The hearing never happened. During the two years Serrano was without the truck, he had to con tinue making $672.97 monthly payments on it, and he had to pay more than $700 to insure it, $1,004.61 to register it in Kentucky and thousands more for rental cars. Serrano is suing for restitution, but also seeking a class-action judgment on behalf of others who have been similarly mistreated. Just at Eagle Pass, one of 73 crossing points on the U.S.-Mexico border, the CBP seizes, on average, well more than 100 Ameri cans vehicles a year. Serrano seeks to establish a right to prompt post-seizure judicial hearings. These would be improvements, but of a process that requires radical revision, if not abolition. Robert Everett Johnson is one of the IJ lawyers whose interest in the case galvanized the CBPs hith erto dormant interest in Serranos rights. Johnson says: Imagine being detained at an airport check point because you innocently forgot to take a tube of toothpaste out of your luggage. But rather than asking you to throw it out or put it in a plastic bag, the TSA agents told you they were seizing all of your luggage, including the toothpaste tube. That happened to Ser rano at the hands of a government the one north of the border that felt free to say, You have no rights here. George Wills email address is georgewill@wash post.com.

The choices are burgers, dogs and fries at one and burgers, dogs, sausage and corn dogs at the other. Id gladly support the Lions Club, and the food is good if your lucky enough to get it fresh and warm, but your just as likely to get it old and cold in my experience. There have been less and less food vendors over the last several years. My family and I are usually there 6 of the 9 days its open, but with such limited choices, rarely eat there. Are there no local vendors that want to be a part of the fair? If not, why? BTW, I went to our downtown pizza place at 9:30 on the Wednesday and it was jam packed with people that had been at the fair that night. Thumbs up to SVEC! Their service is reliable and cus tomer friendly. The best electric company ever. Thumbs down to Windstream. Not a customer friendly service and my internet is intermittent on a daily basis often hourly. Complaints are met with a suggestion to upgrade for a price. I need reliability! In this Fridays Rant and Rave session, we had a very misguided and misinformed Rant and Rave writer. Larry Sessions will be missed as you stated. But he did nothing for the county or District 4. He did promise to be a 24-7 commissioner. He did not. He took the Suwannee Valley Transit Authority job right away for $84,000 a year. Next thing he did, with excuses of experimentation, paved his own road to the tune of $300,000. And I could go on and on and on, but I will stop here. I do encourage Rant and Ravers to be more informed before you write in.

Jeremy started tutoring with Watts in October and was able to get an A in math class. Melissa Cumbesss son Gabe struggled with math but after being tutored by Watts, he was able to keep a passing average. Wendy Lashley saw a dramatic change in her son David when he was tutored by Watts. My son was behind and hated math but with Mr. Watts help, he was able to catch up and now loves math, Lashley said.

Sports SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK FRIDAY, APRIL 6, 2018 Suwannee softball outslugs TCA Suwannee softball outslugs TCA By Mike Jones michael.jones@gaflnews.com LIVE OAK Suwannee and Trinity Christian combined for 25 hits and 21 runs in an offensive showcase that saw five lead changes. So it was no surprise that the team with the final at-bat came out victorious on Tuesday. Savannah Brown delivered a walk-off home run in the seventh inning to lift Suwannee to an 11-10 win. Theyre a really awesome team out of Jacksonville. We had to hit with them, said Suwannee coach Jeff Smith. This year weve had a lot of tough teams that were playing. Weve been on the losing stick of some of those. To beat one of the top teams around will give us a lot of confidence going toward the end of the season. Brown, hitting leadoff, finished 3-5 with two RBIs. It was the top of the Bulldogs order doing most of the damage as their 1-4 hitters combined for 10 hits. Cleanup hitter Skylar Redish slammed two home runs a line drive to right-center in the third inning and a no-doubt three-run homer one inning later. Caileigh Croft went 2-3 with a double and Carson Frier was 3-4 with a double. We kept preaching staying back on the changeup, said Smith. They stayed back and started driving the ball. Skylar has been hitting well all year. She has six home runs. Brownie came through with a couple clutch hits at the end when it counted. In a highly competitive game, neither team was able to gain a clear advantage. The Conquerers took a 6-2 lead in the top of the third, but Suwannee scored the next five runs to grab a 7-6 advantage in the fourth. The Bulldogs made five errors on the night, but came up with a defensive play in the top of the seventh that saved the game. With a runner on first base base and no outs, SHS catcher Shelby Blankenship reacted quickly to catch a foul ball on a bunt attempt and then threw to first for a double play. It was an extremely important play, especially since Trinity Christian Academys (12-7) next hitter, Amaya Ross, came to the plate with the bases empty. Ross hit a solo home run to tie the game at 10.
