She said she knows that she will have to learn new things if elected but will come to the council with fresh eyes. Yulee has been on the city council for 16 years. During his introduction, he said he requested the expansion of the city limits down U.S. Highway 129, and asked the words In God We Trust be placed on the city seal. The candidates for the city council District 4 seat are Norman Crawford, John W. Hill, Jerry Poole and Mark B. Stewart.

But that all has happened as a result of Powers trying to quench a thirst for knowledge. When I started this research, I did not start with the intent to vin dicate my fa ther, he told the audience of more than 30 people at the library. I did not start to honor Cold War veterans or educate kids. I started to try and nd out the truth so I knew how to answer questions.

According to the Florida High way Patrol, 87-year-old Gerald Wil liam Heitsman was driving north on U.S. Highway 129 near 208th Street at 10 a.m. Wednesday when a Ford Focus approached his Ford tractor from the rear. The Focus, driven by 31-year-old Amanda Micheal Douglas, also of OBrien, failed to slow down and ran into the back end of the tractor, the FHP report states. The impact of the collision forced the tractor off the road into the ditch on the eastern side of the highway, according to the report. Heitsman was ejected from the tractor upon impact, and came to rest on the east shoulder of U.S. 129. He was killed in the accident. Douglas was not injured in the accident, nor was her 2-year-old passenger. Charges are pending FHPs in vestigation. rfnft bb Voters meet candidates at city forum Research led to museum, book for Powers Jr. known. He was famous, he got caught.

Flying the top-secret U-2 spy plane for the then little-known Central Intelligence Agency, Powers had completed 27 suc cessful ights over foreign coun tries, including ve or six over the former Soviet Union before May 1, 1961. That was when Powers who was married at the time to Live Oak native Barbara Moore was selected to try to complete a ight mission that would take him over the entire width of the then-Soviet Union.

Captain Charley Ford Robert Ford request ed a marker of honor be placed in the Vet erans Park in honor of his late brother, Cap tain Charley Ford. A Dowling Park native, Ford was a recipient of two Silver Star Medals. Ford enlisted in the U.S. Army as a Signal Corpsman but progressed quickly through the ranks and was promoted to Sergeant before being nominated for Of cer Candidate School. He was he was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant Infantry Ofcer in April 1966, at the age of 21. Ford went on to complete Basic Air borne School and Special Forces (Green Beret) Training, before being deployed to Vietnam in January 1967. He was as signed to the 5th Special Forces Group conducting counterinsurgency operations. On Dec. 1967, he was awarded his rst Silver Star Medal for distinguishing him self by exceptional valorous actions on Aug. 15, 1967. According to the citation, Fords unit made contact with a reinforced Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Army company during a patrol. According to the citation, due to Fords leadership, his unit emerged from a sixhour battle without a single fatality. He received his second Silver Star Medal on April 1, 1968 for his actions of Dec. 13-14, 1967. Ford was serving as a Special Forces Advisor to a Vietnamese Airborne Ranger Company on a search and destroy mission in enemy controlled territory. According to the citation, the unit made contact with two platoons of North Viet namese Army soldiers and Ford immedi ately deployed his troops and led a charge on the hostile forces. The citation states that during the battle, Ford braved bullets to place deadly re on he enemy soldiers and direct the assault. Robert Ford and his family plan to place the marker in the park on Sept. 19, Charley Fords birthday. The board unanimously approved the marker. Arbor Day Mayor Sonny No bles presented a proc lamation declaring April 27 as Arbor Day. In the proclama tion, Nobles urged citizens to plant and care for trees to pro mote the well-being of the current and future generations. Suwannee County Forester Paul Wil liams said there will be a Arbor Day celebration on April 27 at 10:30 a.m. at the Heritage Parks and Gardens. The event is open to the pubic. houses without the citys wastewater ser vices. Allen said he would like to get this done for the residents before the road is paved. Are you kidding me? Burch asked. I dont know any details on this. Last I heard (Ron Williams) was going to look into it. I need information. Just vote no until you can get the in formation, Thomas said. Burch replied: That is not how it works. City resident Tim Wiggins said it doesnt make sense to pave the road and add sewer connections later. Williams said that he is working on nd ing a way to make sure that doesnt hap pen. It was an issue discussed at the city candidate forum Mon day evening as well. There, Wiggins asked Yulee about his help in placing the sewer connections on Anna Avenue. One of the things I told Mr. Wiggins, I said since you have a candidate (Robintina Reed) that you are supporting and putting up signs, thats the one he needs to be talking to, Yulee responded Monday. SRWMD Grants Williams informed the city council that they had been awarded more than $3 mil lion in grants from the Suwannee River Water Management District. The grants will be used to expand the citys sewer program and get people off septic tanks. They received $1,285,000 to expand the sewer program on Duval Street and 105th Road. This will eliminated approx imately 33 septic tanks which will re duce the nitrogen loading in the ground water. They also received $1,730,000 to ex pand the sewer program on 2nd Street and Evelyn Avenue. This will eliminate approximately 30 septic tanks. This will be a great project for the city, Williams said. FRIDAY, APRIL 13, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 3A Remembering Suwannee 68398-1 Blackburn aids in incorporating Live Oak Council approves Miller St. sidewalk project LIVE OAK The Live Oak Police Department is teaming up with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency to take back unused drugs that may be collecting in medicine chests, cupboards or closets. The LOPD will be at Cheek & Scott Drugs, 1520 Ohio Ave. S, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 28, to take back those drugs and properly dispose of them. The nationwide prescription drug Take-Back initiative seeks to prevent pill abuse and theft. According to the DEA: medications are a public-safety issue, leading to accidental poisoning, over dose and abuse. dangerous as street drugs when taken without a prescription or a doctors su pervision. scription drugs, including teens, get them from family and friends and the home medicine cabinet. in the trash can be retrieved and abused, or illegally sold. Unused drugs that are ushed contaminate the water supply. Proper disposal of unused drugs saves lives and protects the environment. For more information, contact Ofcer David Shapiro at 386-362-7467. LOPDs Drug Take-Back event upcoming rf rnttb The following sketch comes from the Biographical Souve nir of the States of Georgia and Florida: Containing Biographical Sketches of the Representative Public, and many Early Set tled Families in These States, published 1889. This book has a number of inuential people, several of which are from Su wannee County: M. (Matthias, EM) M. Black burn is a native of Jefferson County, Tenn (where he was born on April 29, 1826, EM). His parents were Virginian born and settled in Tennessee while the State was a territory. The Black burns were English people; his mothers family, the McGirks, were Scotch. M. Blackburn was reared in Tennessee and educated there. He graduated at Marysville College in 1850, following teach ing six years and during this time read and studied much himself. He was in the mercantile busi ness at Newmarket, Tenn., when the war opened, and offered his services to the Confederate cause and was appointed lieutenant and provost marshal to enforce martial law in four counties lying around Newmarket. He lled this position until the Confederate forces abandoned East Tennes see; then he went to North Caro lina and was engaged in scouting and doing secret service till the surrender. At the close of the war being left without means he began teaching again, which he followed in Tennessee and since in Florida. He settled in Live Oak, December, 1868. Since that time he has held almost every ofce in the county, sometimes holding three or four simulta neously. He was commissioned by Gov. Bloxham a delegate to the National Cotton Planters Association at Atlanta, Ga., in 1881, and in 1885 was appointed by the board of management of the Worlds Industrial and Cotton Centennial Exposition at New Orleans, an honorary commission er from his State. In the same year he was elected a delegate to the constitutional convention to revise the constitution of the State. In politics he was in early days a Whig. On the breaking up of that party he cast his lot with the Democrats and has since been a prominent exponent of liberal, progressive, Democratic ideas. He has never married, al though now past his sixtieth year. He has always taken an active interest in all educational and social matters and yet retains the genial spirits of his youth. Among his public service en deavors, Blackburn was County Treasurer (an ofce abolished in 1917) from 1871-1874, School Board Superintendent in 18711872 (and possibly sometime between 1879 and 1881), a Jus tice of the Peace (circa 1872), and County Judge between 1881 and 1884. I nd it interesting that one person could hold so many different public positions at the same time, but things were much simpler then. The fact that he was not married probably gave him a little more time as well In April 1878, at a meeting to incorporate the town of Live Oak, Blackburn (who was of ten called Professor Blackburn by his peers) was asked by the citizens to explain the process of incorporation. He not only explained it, but then motioned to vote on the matter; the motion was seconded and carried and the town of Live Oak was born. In the rst election of mayor (held minutes later), Blackburn came in second behind A. L. Woodward, but he was appoint ed as manager for the election of aldermen (later called council men). Blackburn was also in the running for several other initial positions within the Town of Live Oak, but came up short. Blackburn served as Assistant Adjutant-General for the Third Brigade, Second Division of the Florida Militia during the early 1880s. Headquartered in Live Oak, this included what became known as the Suwannee Ries. Matthias M. Blackburn died on September 28, 1893, and is bur ied in the cemetery of Antioch Baptist Church north of Live Oak. Join me next week. Eric Musgrove can be reached at ericm@suwgov.org or 386362-0564. jessie.box@ganews.com LIVE OAK The Live Oak City Council approved a sidewalk along Mill er Street, despite questions of where the funding will come from, at Tuesdays meeting. Miller Street is scheduled to be paved soon and some citizens would also like sidewalks along the street on the southern end of Live Oak. I have been in support all along to put a sidewalk there, Councilman Frank Da vis said, adding that the paving project has been in the works for approximately ve years. I know we dont have the funds bud geted, Davis said. That is where we will have to nd the money to do this. He said he has seen an increase in traf c since the county paved Ichetucknee Road and he expects trafc to increase once they pave Miller Street. Lane Lucas, of Eutaw Utilities, Inc., told the council that the more feasible op tion would be putting the sidewalk on the north side of the roadway but they would need the right-of-way from a couple of property owners. He estimated the cost of the sidewalk would be $110,000 to $115,000. This es timate does not include potentially buying land from property owners for the rightof-way. We can sit here all night and talk about what needs to be done, but where are the nances, Council President Bennie Thomas said. City Manager Ron Williams said there is not funding in the budget. Davis made a motion to nd the funding for a sidewalk along Miller Street. Councilman Don Allen seconded the motion. Personally as it stands right now, I cannot vote on approving this for $115,000 and we dont have it in the bud get, Councilman John Yulee said. The motion passed with a vote of 3-2 with David Burch and Yulee voting against. Anna Avenue Sewer Connections Allen previously requested the council nd money to put in sewer connection on Anna Avenue before that road is paved. He said there are approximately ve r rr

Kathleen Townsend started making sleeping mats out of plastic bags several months ago and has since found many other people to help her. To make the mats, plas tic bags are cut into strips and tied together to make plarn or plastic yarn. The plarn is crocheted to make the mat. LOPD and SCSO plans to put the mats into their patrol cars and hand them out to homeless people to sleep on. Townsend said the sleeping mats will pro vide insulation for the person sleeping and keep the morning dew off them. It is amazing to me what a community can do, Chief Buddy Wil liams said. I applaud rnfnrrrr you guys for all your hard work. The American Legion has been donating bags to Townsend since the beginning. We donated the bags to Mrs. Kathleen, George McCorkel, of the American Legion, said. She does so much for the American Legion. Community members have also been dropping bags off at the Live Oak Police Department quite regularly. Bags can also be dropped off at Initially Yours Embroidery at 13705 106th Street, Live Oak.

Each year approximately 150,000 U.S. volunteers help trans form empty shoeboxes into tangi ble expressions of Gods love by packing them with fun toys, school supplies and hygiene items. Oper ation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritans Purse, partners with local churches worldwide to deliv er these gifts to children suffering from poverty, natural disaster, war, terror, disease and famine. For many of these children, this is the first gift they have ever received. National Volunteer Week is a great time to consider how you can be a part of sharing the love of Christ with children in need around the world, said Milagros Almarante, an Operation Christmas Child regional director who over sees the Live Oak area. Without our team of dedicated volunteers, we could not reach millions of children each year with the hope of the Gospel. For anyone interested in joining a local team or applying for a lead ership opportunity in the area, visit samaritanspurse.org/volunteer withOCC or call 407-273-6112. Operation Christmas Child has delivered more than 157 million gift-filled shoeboxes to children in more than 160 countries since 1993. Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritans Purse, an international Christian relief and evangelism organization headed by Franklin Graham. The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate Gods love in a tangi ble way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the good news of Jesus Christ. rff Air Force One lands at Moody AFB tt terry.richards@gaflnews.com VALDOSTA, Ga. People around Moody Air Force Base who thought they saw Air Force One at the base Thursday were right. One of the two VC-25A jets operated by the Air Force for transporting the commander-in-chief was flying around South Georgia as part of an operation al testing regimen, said 1st Lt. Kaitlin Toner of Moodys public affairs office. This testing program includes the requirement to conduct multiple take offs, approaches and landings under a variety of conditions, she said. No passengers were aboard the plane, Toner said. People from Lowndes, Berrien and Lanier counties posted to social media about spotting the famous plane. Though the VC-25As essentially modified Boeing 747s are common ly known as Air Force One, that call sign is only used for an aircraft when the president is on board. This began in 1953 after an incident in which the presidents plane and a commercial flight were both using identical call signs in flight, posing a safety hazard. Home base for the presidential planes is Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, where they are part of the Presidential Airlift Group, 89th Airlift Wing.

This isnt exactly breaking news, but I enjoy eating. Barbecue, pizza, a good burger, des serts, its all good to me. Now, there are denitely some foods that I dont enjoy. Im looking at you original Hamburger Helper. And pop corn. Now as the kids would say, dont @ me. My palate also doesnt care for some Southern staples that I wont divulge be cause I may be run out of town. But nothing that Ive had the pleasure, or displeasure, of tasting even came close to the jelly bean that I bit into earlier this week. The folks at Jelly Belly, the evil masterminds behind Bean Boozled Jelly Beans, certainly labeled the Barf jelly bean ac curately. One taste of that red-speckled orange jelly bean made me want to do exactly that. It was by far the most disgusting thing Ive ever eaten. And to answer a former boss inquiry on Facebook, yes the name gave that away. But in the box of Bean Boozled Jelly Beans, that repulsive bean could have just as easily been a tasty peach avored treat. Plus, up until that point, I had experienced only good luck in my selections. I had lucked into a Berry Blue rather than Toothpaste (although my daughter has told me both taste good). I had chosen Lime instead of Lawn Clippings (I later wasnt as fortunate, but I would gladly eat an entire box of Lawn Clippings before another Barf jelly bean). In fact, I can think of a number of things I would rather try than another one of those sickening candies. This year, Wild Adventures has an interactive area dubbed the MEGABUGS! Adventure Encounters. To kick it off as well as to open the theme parks season, they hosted an Eat a Cricket, Get a Ticket promotion last month. As much as the thought of a dry-roasted cricket doesnt get my mouth watering, I have little doubt that it would be much tastier than another gamble at Bean Boozled. Especially since some of the other choices dont sound much better: Spoiled Milk, Rotten Egg, Booger, Stinky Socks, Canned Dog Food, Moldy Cheese or Dead Fish. Plus one of the supposed good avors is Buttered Popcorn. That sounds like a lose-lose proposition there. What also sounds like a no-win situation is to be the un lucky person or persons at Jelly Belly who had to serve as taste testers for this product. I dont want to know how they came up with the avoring to put in the revolting candies, al though I truly hope they werent naturally avored. But I certainly feel for the people who had to taste them over and over again to let them know that they indeed got that booger taste right. Or barf. Or lawn clippings. Plus, did they also eat some dog food and taste a stinky sock to make sure what those should taste like? Bean Boozled indeed. Jamie Wachter is the editor of the Suwannee Democrat.

Question of the Week Have you paid your taxes yet? 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. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. The bumpy path of Desmond Meades life meandered to its current interest ing point. He is a graduate of Florida International University law school but cannot vote in his home state be cause his path went through prison: He committed non-violent felonies concerning drugs and other matters during the 10 years when he was es sentially homeless. And Florida is one of 11 states that effectively disqualify felons permanently. Meade is one of 1.6 million disenfranchised Florida felons more people than voted in 22 states in 2016. He is one of the 20 percent of African-American Flo ridians disenfranchised. The state has a low threshold for felonious acts: Someone who gets into a bar ght, or steals property worth $300 approximately two pairs of Air Jordans or even drives without a license for a third time can be disenfranchised for life. There is a cum bersome, protracted process whereby an individual, after waiting ve to seven years (it depends on the felony) can begin a trek that can consume 10 years and culminates with politicians and their appointees deciding who can vote. Meade heads the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, which gathered more than a million signatures to get the state Supreme Court to approve, and local supervisors of elections to verify, the ballot initiative that voters will decide on Nov. 6. Meades basic argument on behalf of what he calls returning citizens like him is: I chal lenge people to say that they never want to be forgiven for anything theyve done. Persons convicted of murder or felony sexual offense would not be eligible for enfran chisement. Intelligent and informed people of good will can stren uously disagree about the wisdom of policies that have produced mass incarceration. What is, however, indisput able is that this phenomenon creates an enormous prob lem of facilitating the re-entry into society of released prisoners who were not improved by the experience of incarceration and who face discouraging impediments to employment and other facets of social normality. In 14 states and the District of Columbia, released felons auto matically recover their civil rights. Recidivism among Floridas released felons has been approximately 30 percent for the ve years 2011-2015. Of the 1,952 persons whose civil rights were restored, ve committed new offenses, a recidivism rate of 0.4 percent. This sample is skewed by self-selection over-representation of those who had the nancial re sources and tenacity to navigate the complex restoration process that each year serves a few hundred of the 1.6 million. Still, the recidivism numbers are suggestive. What compelling government interest is served by fel on disenfranchisement? Enhanced public safety? How? Is it to ne-tune the quality of the electorate? This is not a legitimate government objective for elected ofcials to pursue. A felony conviction is an indelible stain: What intelligent purpose is served by reminding felons, who really do not require reminding, of their past, and by ad vertising it to their community? The rule of law requires punishments, but it is not served by punishments that never end and that perpetuate a social stigma and a sense of never fully re-entering the community. Meade, like one-third of the 4.7 million current citi zens nationwide who have re-entered society from prison but cannot vote, is an African-American. More than one in 13 African-Americans nationally are similarly disen franchised, as are one in ve of Floridas African-Amer ican adults. Because African-Americans overwhelmingly vote Democratic, ending the disenfranchisement of felons could become yet another debate swamped by parti sanship, particularly in Florida, the largest swing state, where close elections are common: Republican Governor Rick Scotts margins of victory in 2010 and 2014 were 1.2 and 1.1 percent, respectively. And remember the 537 Florida votes that made George W. Bush president. Last week, Scotts administration challenged a federal judges order that the state adopt a rights-restoration pro cedure that is less arbitrary and dilatory. A Quinnipiac poll shows that 67 percent of Floridians favor and only 27 percent oppose enfranchisement of felons. These numbers might provoke Republicans, who control both houses of the legislature, to try to siphon away support for the restoration referendum by passing a law that somewhat mitigates the severity of the current policy. Such a law would be presented for the signature of the governor, who is trying to unseat three-term Democratic senator Bill Nelson. Again, who is comfortable with elected politicians winnowing the electorate? When the voting results from around the nation are reported on the evening of Nov. 6, some actual winners might include 1.6 million Floridians who were not allowed to cast ballots.

And just watch, hell prob ably end up as a double dipper, where he retires for six months, starts getting his State of Florida pension, then gets hired back to the Transit Authority at the same position and pay. While collecting his pension, too. Maybe before he goes he can update us on how well the chip seal is working out for HIM. I havent heard anything about chip seal since they released the list of the odd collection of roads to be done next. How about an update Suwannee Democrat? Why is Suwannee County zoning so opposed to tiny houses or accessory dwellings on rural property? Rusty mobile homes are permitted en masse, but code compliant tiny homes are not. We desperately need accessory dwellings to keep our aging widowed par ent near us instead of putting them in public housing, or for those times when a grown child may need our help. We want to provide for our own, but the county is preventing us from doing so. rfn Rant & Rave FRIDAY, APRIL 13, 2018 Jamie Wachter Editor jamie.wachter@ganews.com

I have a lot of experience working with people, Crawford said. He worked with the Department of Children and Families for 31 years and was a liaison between his ofce and the governors ofce. An issue Crawford sees is lack of transparency on the board. Hill told the residents that he was not going to ask them to vote for him. You can pick any one of these three guys or myself, Hill said. You need to ask yourself this, Who is going to go and best represent you, stand up for you when it comes time to not be railroaded by the administration of the city. Poole, who has previously served as a county commissioner, said the city and county need to work together. I will ght, whatever it takes to make it happen, Poole said, adding that when the city makes a policy, he will know what type of policy he is voting on. Mark Stewart, who has served on the council previously, said this year is a pivotal election for the City of Live Oak. This will set the tone for growth and development in the city, Stewart said, noting the city and county need to present a united front to bring businesses to Suwannee County. The candidates for Mayor are Frank Davis and Tommie Jefferson. Davis currently serves as the city councilman for District 4. He said he is not going to make promises he cant keep because the mayor cannot vote. The mayor has veto power over ordinances and over sight, Davis said. Davis said he sees the position of mayor as an ambassador of Live Oak. He added that the position of mayor is important because the mayor is an inuencer. Jefferson said he is an advocate for combining the citys re department with Suwannee County Fire Rescue. He also said he is concerned with the water quality in Live Oak. Jefferson said voters should vote for him because he has experience, knows how to communicate and listen to people. The election will be held Tuesday, May 8. Early voting will be held from April 30 through May 5. Continued From Page 1A Voters eers and then the Semi noles. I didnt apply for one of them. They called me. We want you as our coach. Now I applied for some and didnt get them. I couldnt get them. But He got them for me. Because I asked Him to lead me, guide me, tell me what to do. There were several times I had choices, go to this school or go to that school. Which one should I go to? I tried to do what I thought God wanted me to do and golly, look what happened men. My career I really cant take cred it for it. God answered my prayer and led me in what to do. His message to the Live Oak crowd, which includ ed the Suwannee High football team as well as a number of youth from the Florida Sheriffs Boys Ranch, was to do just that: Make oneself avail able for Gods plan. Bowden said that plan for him included being a football coach, where he tried to impact the lives of his players and coach es. He said now that plan includes him traveling to speak at Fellowship of Christian Athletes events and, occasionally, mak ing a stop like the one locally. I feel like God wants me to tell the story to young men searching for something, he said. The thing God wants with you and all of us is our availability and then Hell do something with it. Bowdens availability included taking his team to church at times, some thing he admitted to not being politically correct. And I know the gov ernment doesnt like that, but I dont much care what they like, Bowden said. He also used a tragic incident at Florida State as the ultimate teaching moment for his staff and players. In 1986, an FSU lineman Pablo Lopez was shot and killed at a cam pus party. When Bowden gath ered his team the next day, he used Lopezs absence as a way to make sure his players, as young as they were, realized the preciousness of life. And how they needed to be ready to die and have their priorities in order. It gave me an oppor tunity to witness to them of what a man must do to have eternal life, said Bowden, who added that his priority list went God, family, education with football far down the list. And where were going to go after we die, whats going to happen. The thing you have to realize men, death isnt the end. Its the begin ning. Its the beginning of eternal life. Life down here is short. Eternal, thats a long time. Continued From Page 1A Bowden to cause structural damage to the tail section. After ejecting from the plane, Powers was captured by the Soviets and held in solitary con nement and interrogated for three months before a three-day trial in which he was sentenced to 10 years in Soviet prison for espionage. Instead, Powers was released in 1962 in ex change for captured So viet spy Rudolph Abel. An international incident that was detailed in Strangers on a Bridge, written in 1964 by James Donovan, who brokered the exchange. It also was turned into the 2015 mov ie Bridge of Spies, on which Powers Jr. served as a technical consultant. But that information was all known to Powers Jr. growing up. Still, he didnt fully grasp it until his father died in 1977 in a helicop ter crash while working for NBC television. As a kid, growing up in this family, this was fairly normal, he said. We talked about this, so I was aware of it. My perception, as a young kid, because of what I knew about dad, I thought everybodys dad had been through some thing like mine. I dont understand why the press calls the house to ask questions, why friends at school would come up to me and tell me something they knew about my father. All of a sudden, these peers at school would know some thing about me and my family but I wouldnt re ally know anything about them or their family. Twelve at the time, it wasnt until he was in college that Powers Jr. began his pursuit to fully understanding his fathers story. That search has turned into a never-ending quest. Well, the more I learned, the more ques tions there were, he said, adding that in trying to know more about his fa ther, he needed to know more about the U-2 inci dent and program which meant learning about the Cold War itself. It also meant trying to dispel some of the partial truths and misinformation surrounding the era and his fathers story. Which is why he has published the book of his fathers letters and journal from his time in Soviet prisons. How can you argue with what he is writing while in prison? Powers Jr. asked. For all the conspiracy theory that is out there, for all the rumors, speculation and the lies that are out there, how could someone that is doing research argue with what he is writing in prison? Hes not lying to himself. Hes trying to recall what he had gone through, take notes so he can remember it. Continued From Page 1A Research

That was the case for Branford on Wednesday as the Buccaneers fought for a 6-4 district win against Chiefland (5-7, 3-3). Branford (11-4, 8-2), which hasnt lost con secutive games all season, kept that streak alive, pulling out a close game despite making four errors and allowing nine walks. Tyler Whitfield worked around some of those walks to pitch five strong innings in relief and get the win. BHS coach Alex OQuinn turned to Whitfield in a difficult spot early in the game.

Oftentimes, fantasy baseball championships are won by those who take chances on the early season fantasy baseball waiver wire. So nows the time to take a few chances with the waiver wire, in hopes of finding a player or two who far exceeds expectations. Heres three po sition players who deserve a chance on your roster, just to see if they can remain a viable option into the summer. Preston Tucker, OF, Atlanta Braves The Atlanta Braves are hot on the offensive end. And Tucker is one of the main rea sons why. He was owned in less than 1 percent of leagues when the fantasy baseball season kicked off. Entering week 2 of the fantasy baseball season, hes owned in a little more than 50 percent of leagues on ESPN. If hes still residing on your leagues waiver wire, do your self a favor, and give him a chance. Tucker is slashing .370/.400/.667 this season, with two homers and nine RBIs. His past isnt pretty when compared to this season, but this is only is third season, and the new scenery (he was in Houston the previous two years) may have provided him a rebirth. Hes worth a pickup, just to see if he can continue to offer solid power numbers for a team that appears poised to be better on the offensive end than many expected. Dansby Swanson, SS, Atlanta Braves Well stick with the hot-hitting Braves. Swanson is another one of those young players on Atlan tas roster who is hitting lights out in the early stages of 2018. Swanson is batting .382 so far this season with seven RBIs and ve runs scored. What I like most about Swanson is that he was a highly touted draft pick, who just didnt seem to get much going in his rst full sea son in 2017. He hit just .232 last season, with an on-base percentage of .312. Because of those numbers, he was forgotten heading into 2018. Dont give up on him just yet, though. He was a big-time draft pick for a reason and hes showing that hitting ability now that many expected right away. Some players take a little time, so dont be discouraged by Swansons season last year. Freddy Galvis, SS, San Diego Padres OK, Ill take the bait. Galvis is a known commodity, so that hot start in the batting av erage department shouldnt fool me much. However, he does have new scenery, which may serve as a motivating factor, and hes showing some of that power production that was lost last season. When Galvis was at his best, he hit 20 homers, registered 67 RBIs and stole 17 bases. His batting average left a lot to be desired, but thats not horrible production in a 12-team league. This season, hes showing less speed (no stolen bases), but he has a .364 batting average with ve RBIs. If he can get back that speed, while also con tinuing to hit for power, he can be a serviceable candidate. We have some ev idence of previous power, so he may be able to contribute to your fantasy baseball roster. Scott Levine is the Associate Editor for the Clinton Herald.
