FRIDAY, MAY 25, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 3B Kirkland, Timothy Jolicoeur and Terrell Williams were Suwannees wrestling. Clark was second in weightlift ing, Merola took fth and Kirk land nished sixth at state. 5. Braun, Freeland recognized for football excellence Safety Tadavius Freeland played in the prestigious FACA (Florida Athletic Coaches Asso ciation) All-Star Game, which is reserved for the best senior play ers in the state. Offensive tackle Josh Braun was named to the Class 5A All-state Team, chosen by Floridahsfootball.com, as an honorable mention. 4. On to the next level Ten SHS grads will continue their athletic careers in college, including four football players (Scott, Kendall Croft, Justin Dalton and Rafael Martinez) and three softball players (Redish, Sa vannah Brown and Brandi Davis). Clark signed a wrestling schol arship. Hilliard was offered a spot on the Florida State University track team. And Suwannee base ball player Hueston Morrill signed with Oklahoma State. More on him in a bit. 3. District champs Considering the results from previous games, it wasnt exactly David vs. Goliath when Suwan nee hosted powerhouse Bolles on May 3 for the district title. But it was a little surprising to see a fairly young SHS squad knock off the two-time defend state champs. Bo Bonds and soph omore Nolan Miller starred on the mound as Suwannee played a nearly-perfect game in front of a big home crowd. 2. SHS football goes bowling The Suwannee football team, playing the Elks Lodge Military Appreciation Bowl on Nov. 10, used big-time performances from Roberson and Carlton Hall to win the nal game of the season. Rob erson had a 60-yard punt return touchdown, as well as two other long punt returns, and Hall rushed for 128 yards and a touchdown in Suwannees 28-24 comeback win. 1. Banged-up Morrill pitches Bulldogs into playoffs Morrill played through some serious pain to help the Su wannee baseball team make it to the state playoffs. With a huge contusion on his left shin, Morrill pitched a complete-game four-hitter with 12 strikeouts to lead the Bulldogs past Baker County 2-1 on May 1. He drove in both of Suwannees runs in the district semifinal. It was Morrills performance in this game that allowed Su wannee to play for a district ti tle and also go on to the post season, where the Bulldogs won their first playoff game since 2011.

WASHINGTON Americas govern ment declares war promiscuously on poverty, on drugs, on cancer, etc. except when actually going to war, which the nation has done often since it last declared war (on June 5, 1942, on Romania, Bulgar ia and Hungary). But the incipient war du jour is being postponed. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says the Trump adminis tration is putting the trade war on hold. The one with China, that is. Others can continue. The armistice-before-the-war is good news for farmers, who could use some. USA Today reports that the net income of U.S. farmers has fallen by more than half since 2013, to its lowest point since 2006, the steepest decline since the Depression. For this, blame productive farming around the world (supply outpacing demand), rot ten weather in America, and perverse gov ernment in Washington. China and Mexi co, responding to uncertainties caused by U.S. indignation (about China selling too much to consenting American adults, and about NAFTA enabling mighty Mexico to exploit America), are nding alternative sources of soybeans, pork and beef. There is nothing like a calamity for taking ones mind off ones troubles, and anti-immigration Republicans have another afiction for American farmers. The Wall Street Journal reports that about half of agriculture workers are undocumented immigrants. Because more Mexicans have left than entered the United States between 2009 and 2014, the immigrant agriculture labor force is aging and moving to high er-paying construction jobs. The Journal: As farmers struggle to nd workers, more production has moved abroad. Avocado imports have doubled over the last eight years while U.S. produc tion (measured by acreage) has declined by about a quarter. Since 1999, domestic production has fallen for oranges (by 36 percent), grapefruits (61 percent) and as paragus (69 percent). Imports of fresh fruits and vegetables have swelled. ... This hurts workers in related industries like transpor tation and food processing. This is the Re publicans approach to succoring victims of globalization. Mortgage rates have risen to the highest level since 2011, they are far from done ris ing, and a National Association of Realtors economist says that every percentage-point increase can reduce home sales 7 to 8 per cent. Simultaneously, the administrations protectionism is further increasing the cost of homeownership with tariffs on imported Canadian lumber (framing lumber is about 18 percent of the average new homes sell ing price). Bloomberg Businessweek says this adds an average of $1,360 to the cost of building a single-family home, the price of which has risen $6,388 since January 2017. Steel can sometimes be used as a substitute for lumber, except ... In the 1830s, in Grand Detour, Illinois, a young blacksmith designed a self-scouring steel plow that could turn the Midwests heavy black topsoil. John Deere then started a company and now his name is on big green machines everywhere. Today, however, the administrations steel tariffs are causing Deere & Co. to raise prices, which will injure its competitiveness, un less the demand for American machinery is price-inelastic. Perhaps the Trump adminis trations protectionists, who know so much (how much Americans should consume of this and that import, and at what prices), know this about the machinery market. Not content with bossing around Amer icans, even unto telling them which wash ing machines to buy, the administrations protectionists have demanded that Mexico, as part of a renegotiated NAFTA, institute a $16 minimum wage for Mexican factory workers. So, a Republican administration purports to know more than Mexicos labor market knows about the proper price of Mexican labor. But, then, the last know-itall administration so aggressive about con trolling wages and prices was Republican (Richard Nixons). All this dictating and renegotiating is supposed to protect American jobs from the menace of NAFTA, which according to one of its ardent critics destroyed 1 million U.S. jobs in its rst 20 years (1994-2014). An academic study argues that trade with China destroyed 2.4 million jobs between 1999 and 2011. But Don Boudreaux of George Mason Universitys Mercatus Cen ter says this means it took NAFTA two de cades to destroy as many jobs as are erased by the normal churning of the American job market on average every 18 days And the so-called China shock eliminated in 13 years as many jobs as are eliminated by the U.S. economys process of creative destruction, on average, every 41 days So, if there are to be trade wars with China and Mexico, they will be launched to avenge job casualties that are far fewer than those routinely inicted by the domestic processes that produce American prosperity.

As far as eradicating liberalism in this country, it wont be possible as long as elected ofcials continue getting votes by offering everyone everything ... at governments (i. e., taxpayers) expense. Those who dont pay income taxes will continue voting for these people, so dont expect liberalism to disappear.

in the air would help kill the germs, so the day and night were lit up with the sound of gunre. It died off when one of the most prominent supporting doctors came down with the fever. Other methods were tried, including burning barrels of tar, dousing trees, hitching posts, curbs, street cars, etc. with disinfectants made of lime or a mer cury solution. Soon, no city would take residents from Jacksonville, and the sur viving citizens were forced to create their own quarantine camps. Mail from Jack sonville was individually fumigated piece by piece. Ad-hoc quarantines were estab lished in various communities by armed men with orders to shoot anyone who refused to turn back. There are various rst-hand accounts of hotel staff through out the State quitting at a moments notice upon hearing about the epidemic, some abandoning their posts while breakfast was still cooking. Government broke down as law enforcement, reghters and even the mayor ed Jacksonville and other communities. In the midst of the epidemic, Live FRIDAY, MAY 25, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 3A Remembering Suwannee Eastern vistors banned during epidemic Today, we continue our discussion of the 1888 yellow fever outbreak that caused widespread panic in North Florida. On Aug. 15, the same day that the Su wannee County Commissioners had enact ed an ordinance refusing to receive people and items from Jacksonville, the Live Oak Town Council appointed Dr. Carroll (the mayor) and Dr. Overstreet (chairman of the Council) to confer with the County Commissioners and learn what they had done in regard to quarantining the Coun ty. The Council agreed that after the County Commission placed their police force on incoming trains, that they would discharge from the police force all but one man; however, additional men could be employed if deemed necessary. The County set up a suspect camp for those who were suspected of carrying yel low fever. The County paid several men for their guard duty during the epidemic, noting their locations in the January 1889 minutes. Most of the men were stationed at Columbus (now the Suwannee River State Park), Live Oak and Branford. In Jacksonville and other locations, there was even greater hysteria. In Jack sonville, the hotel where the rst con rmed case had stayed was burned to the ground as a precautionary measure. There was a common belief that shooting guns Oaks marshal, W. P. Mosley, and Coun cil Chairman S. T. Overstreet resigned from their positions. S. S. Sims was elect ed as Mosleys replacement, and W. L. Whiteeld was Dr. Overstreets replace ment. A possible reason for Dr. Over streets resignation was that his medical services were needed to help contain the yellow fever, and he did not have time to perform his civic duties otherwise. By the Oct. 28, 1888, meeting, the City Council was ordering that all trains from the east not be allowed to enter the cor porate limits of Live Oak, nor could any passengers, train crews, or other matters be allowed until further notice. The mayor was instructed to use all diligence and to employ sufcient forces to carry out the Councils directions. In addition, the min utes reected that all parties who have been (in) contact with Mr. White be sent to quarantine camp. Which Mr. White was not addressed in the minutes. Later in the day, the City Council met again, this time to order that all religious or other gatherings be dispersed until oth erwise ordered, and that the marshal see that this order was carried out. Dr. Car roll, the mayor, resigned during the same meeting, probably to focus his efforts on dealing with patients. A special-called meeting was held on Nov. 1, and the marshal was instructed to disburse all crowds and congregations of all kinds in the streets. A slew of ofcials continued to resign, with no reason given in the minutes. Possible reasons included taking care of ailing family, dealing with the health hazard in some commercial way (like practicing medicine), or simply quit ting out of fear for their own safety. By the middle of November, the yellow fever scare was apparently dying down, as a previous Live Oak City Council order dispersing all religious and other gath erings was revoked. On Dec. 3, the City Council ofcially revoked all quarantine ordinances and orders. The town of Live Oak and the rest of Suwannee County seemed to settle in to a feeling of normal cy; even some of those who had resigned from their government positions to appar ently deal with the epidemic returned to their posts (including Dr. Overstreet). Although there were some nancial aftereffects (such as payment for extra guards to work the railroads and quaran tine camp), life carried on. The Florida State Board of Health was created the following year, largely as a result of the 1888 yellow fever epidemic. More history next week!

Some pests may already be reaping the benets of your hard work planting the gar den. The warmer weather brings out insects that have been overwintering and are now looking for a free meal. It helps to scout for harmful insects every couple of days. Be sure and check under the leaves and along stems. The University of Florida has a free, publication to help you identify harmful and helpful insects, Insect Management in the Home Garden by Susan Webb and Freddie Johnson. You can go follow this link, http:// edis.ifas.u.edu/vh036 or stop by our ofce for a printed copy of it. Following are a few guidelines that should help you with your insect man agement strategies. First, we must realize insects can attack roots, stems, leaves, ow ers and fruits at any growth stage. Many different insects attack vegetable crops and it is impossible to know from one season to the next which of these pests will cause problems. Some cause problems every year while others rarely appear. There are also many insects which are benecial, and in some instances essential, to producing veg etables. Obviously, it is best if we can learn the difference between harmful insects and benecial insects. Some common insects that attack under ground plant parts are wireworms (the larval stage of the click beetle), cutworms, mole crickets, grubs and lesser cornstalk borers. (The publication mentioned above provides more in-depth information about each in sect). Chewing insects that feed on leaves and stems are primarily caterpillars, loopers and some beetles. Be on the lookout for the following caterpillars; beet armyworm, fall armyworm, southern armyworm, yellow striped army worm, loopers (especially cole crops like cabbage, collards, cauliower, broccoli), tomato hornworm and bean leaf rollers. Look along the midrib on the un derside of the leaf or along the stem for the dastardly hornworms. They are almost the same color of the leaf and do an excellent job of camouaging themselves. A few of the unwelcome beetles are Colorado potato beetle, Mexican bean beetle, cucumber bee tle and ea beetles. Other leaf feeding pests are leaf minors and pinworms. Piercing and sucking insects that feed on the plants leaves and stems are aphids, leaf footed plant bugs, leafhoppers, silver leaf whitey, spider mites, stinkbugs and thrips. One of the other issues with these insects is that they spread viral diseases which are in curable. You can plant trap crops like Giant sunowers, buckwheat or triticale depend ing on the season to trap stinkbugs. Plant the trap crops on the perimeter of your veg etable garden to intercept the overwintering stinkbugs that emerge from nearby woods. Problem pests that feed on seeds, pods and fruits are the corn earworms, pickle worms, cow pea curculios, pepper worms, potato tuber worms, stink bugs, tomato hornworm and wireworms. Yikes, what can we do about these pesky insects? Follow these guidelines to help re duce unwelcome garden pests: crops or families of crops within the gar den so that the same vegetable family is not grown in the same lo cation more than once every three years. at least 30 days prior to planting. If soil test indicate lime is needed, it should be added 90 days before planting. four times per week. This includes inspect ing the plants from the bud to the soil in cluding both upper and lower leaf surface. hand and destroyed without use of chem icals; this should be practiced if possible. They will sink and drown if they are put in a container of soapy water. (praying mantis, lace wings, spiders, bigeyed bugs, assassin bugs, lady beetles, and all parasitic wasps). Often chemicals are used in error against these benecial insects. and use chemicals only when a serious pest problem exists. Carefully follow all direc tions on labels. spray the plant thoroughly. Horticultural oils and insecticidal soaps work well on aphids, spider mites and mealy bugs. To kill caterpillars, hornworms and loopers, use Bt, (Bacillus thuringiensis). tality, sprays are best applied late in the af ternoon or early evening hours. Also, many garden pests are night feeders, so spraying later is more effective. To reduce spray burn, make sure the plants are not under moisture stress. It is best to irrigate the gar den thoroughly before spraying. results than dusts. In many cases dusts will drift and kill many benecial arthropods. Also, dusts are easily washed off by rain and irrigation, or blown off by wind, and it usually requires more actual insecticide in the dust form than in the spray form to ac complish the same degree of control. soon as they are ripe. Allowing over-ripe fruits to remain on the plants often invites additional insect, rat, and/or mice problems. tive remove it from the garden and destroy it. Do not pull it up and leave it in the gar den area. over, cut down all remaining plants and plow them into the soil or take them out of the garden area.

Whether the music was simple or not, Hoffman won over the audience at her party. A former nurse, the Michigan native wasnt even sure she was worth the fuss Wednesday. When asked how it felt to be 102, Hoffman down played it. Its just like every oth er day, she said. You cant stop it. Her son Paul, a former television news anchor man, added: Today is the day. It was the day in 1916 when Hoffman was born in Holland, Michigan, to Jacob and Eureka Zuid erma, the oldest of three children. She married Howard Hoffman, a funeral direc tor, in 1937. Howard Hoffman was also quite a piano player, according to Paul Hoffman and his daughter, Janie Moore. Paul Hoffman said his father could play any song by ear, routinely going to functions and nding a piano and then spending the night playing whatever song someone requested. Marjorie Hoffman, though, played from sheet music. Even when its too simple like her party mu sic Wednesday. But her impact on Witt man has been anything but simple. She looks at me with tears in her eyes and says, How do I deserve you? Whittman said during the party. Because I need you as much as you need me. This has been a won derful experience for me. Weve just had a ball. Continued From Page 1A Birthday lesson Id like to share, I did find out that if I changed the way I looked at things, things I looked at did change. She concluded her speech with advice on how to accomplish longterm goals. If its a long-term goal, its easier to chop it up, she said.

Continued From Page 1A SCSD To see related video, visit our website at suwanneedemocrat.com MORE ONLINE jamie.wachter@gaflnews.com LIVE OAK The Court Street beautification project has been put on hold. The Live Oak Community Re development Agency rejected the bids on the project at Tuesdays meeting, which would have added landscaping and bulb outs to the Court Street corridor in downtown. The low bid received was $83,774.06, which was more than $30,000 above the amount the board had budgeted for the project. The board had previously reject ed the bids on the project in Janu ary with staff then making minor modifications before rebidding it. Curtis told the board, in re sponse to a question from board member Bruce Tillman, that the bids increased by about $10,000 since that earlier rejection. Clearly at the numbers that continue, at least twice now, to be well outside the budget, we can not recommend that you authorize approval of this project, at least the way its structured, City Man ager Ron Williams said. Williams and George Curtis, the citys planning, zoning and devel opment director, said the board could decide to use that budgeted allotment on other projects if they decided to reject the bids. Those projects included work on the parking lot at 125 Court Street. Currently an unpaved lot, the CRA purchased the property with the goal of improving it. Councilman David Burch said with parking issues identified on Court Street, utilizing the funding in that direction made sense. That will kind of solve some of the problems that people have ad dressed, he said. I would rather put our funds toward something like that. Tillman, though, questioned whether it would actually address the parking issues since the lot is already used for parking. I dont know that you can say well create more parking than al ready exists there, Curtis replied, adding the improvements would add handicap accessible parking and improve the lot. It would make it, what would be considered a legal parking lot instead of just unapproved. The board unanimously agreed to reject the bids, although there was no decision on how to redirect the funds. Project manager search The CRA board also gave Wil liams the go-ahead to search for a new CRA project manager at Tuesdays meeting. The position would replace CRA project specialist Kim Smiley, whose last day with the city and CRA was Friday. Well all miss Ms. Smiley, thats for sure, Williams said. She served the city very well. With Smileys departure, Wil liams and Curtis proposed a plan that would shift most of Curtis responsibilities to the city with the incoming CRA project man ager handing most of the CRA duties. Curtis and Smiley had been serving in hybrid positions that re quired them working for both the city and the CRA. My concern is George is work ing for the city part of the time, CRA (part of the time) and Ive heard that hes overloaded, coun cilman Bennie Thomas said. Williams assured him and the board that the proposed plan would lessen Curtis load. This reduces his CRA effort, he said, adding that Curtis helped design the plan. It provides him with additional support. We think that grows his pro ductivity. Board chairman Frank Davis added: Well call this The Curtis Plan. Under the plan, the project man ager would answer to Williams with Curtis serving as a consultant for CRA projects. Gina Salvati also works in the CRA office and the new plan would call for adding a part-time employee as well. Board member Cindy Robinson asked if the CRA should just look for a CRA Director, something the board had discussed and examined in the past. Williams said it was certainly something they could decide to do, but at an increased cost too. I think maybe if we find the right person, they could potential ly grow into something like that, Burch said. Davis agreed. Illuminating downtown Davis asked the board to also look into the cost of adding light ing to the downtown parks for safety purposes, especially in re gards to the festivals held there: Freedom Festival on July 4, the Candy Carnival for Halloween and, obviously, Christmas on the Square. The CRA had discussed the is sue previously and budgeted some funds for it. Williams told the board he had been in contact with Florida Pow er & Light about its current work in replacing and upgrading lights around town. Suwannee County Chamber of Commerce President Brandon Fer nald told the board he and the Chamber were very interested in improving the lighting in that portion of Live Oak, especially in regards to Christmas on the Square. He said specifically the areas around Wilbur Street, Church Av enue and Warren Street have been identified as needing improved lighting. Not just related to Christmas on the Square, if you walk in there anytime, its really dark down through that area, Fernald said. If we have more illumination down there, it will enhance that downtown area. Fernald said the Chamber is open to whatever is the best solution, whether its permanent lighting or temporary additions for events, such as the Christmas on the Square. Lighting is important for fam ilies to feel safe, Tillman said, adding that the improvement needs to benefit the area as a whole and not just for a few festivals. Heritage Square The board unanimously ap proved the concept and master plan for Heritage Square that Kim ley Horn & Associates presented at a workshop May 1. With the approval of the master plan, Williams and CRA staff can now begin the process of trying to identify funding sources for some of the developments within the project. Davis only concern was to make sure the phases outlined in the plan werent set in stone. If somebody looks at this, its a pretty ambitious plan, he said. I would want to know that we have the exibility to do whatever we need to do as funds are avail able and needs dictate as we move along. Curtis told him that they could move ahead with any part of the project once funding was identied. Tillman added that the funding sources, including grants, are sep arate from what the city otherwise has access to. People may ask, How are you going to pay for it? But my un derstanding is a good deal of this is available and eligible for grant funding, Davis said. So hopefully a majority of the funds will come from other sources than CRA mon ey.

The alert, which is for 60 days, was issued in response to a conrmed rabies case found in a raccoon near Coun ty Road 252. County residents as well as visitors should be aware that rabies are present in the wild animal population, the DOH warns, adding that domestic animals are at risk if not vaccinated. The DOH said the public should maintain a heightened awareness that rabies is active in the county. Alerts are designed to increase awareness but the DOH warns residents should not get a false sense of security in areas not named in an alert. According to the DOH, wildlife contact should be avoided, especially raccoons, bats, foxes, skunks, otters, bobcats and coyotes. Rabies is a disease of the nervous system and is fatal to warm-blooded animals and humans. Rabies alert issued for eastern Suwannee County LIVE OAK Walts Live Oak Ford made donations to both Branford and Suwannee High Schools during Tuesday nights Suwannee County School Board meeting. Walts hosted Drive 4 UR School events in conjunction with both schools this spring. We are honored to be able to facilitate the Drive 4 UR School program to help with the educational expenses for our schools, these children and our future, Walts General Manager Bryan Blair said. The best investment one can make to better our own future is to invest in our children. It was the second straight year that the event was held at Paul Langford Stadi um for SHS. Principal Malcolm Hines along with the rest of the SHS staff and community were able to get 142 regular test drives and 132 second test drives on March 24 for a total of 274 test drives. That netted the school a donation of $4,160 from Ford. We had a great time helping the schools and meeting some great families and students and we look forward to see ing everyone next year, Walts owner Walter Bryan said. On April 14, Branfords track was the site of the schools rst Drive event. The community supported Principal Terry Huddleston and staff with more than 300 regular test drives and more than 200 second test drives. The school received a check for $8,000, the maximum donation from Ford. I believe Henry Ford said it best when he said, Time and money spent in helping men to do more for themselves is far bet ter than mere giving, added Amy Ham mons, the event coordinator for Walts. rfnnntb bb tttt t 66th annual Florida Folk Festival is this weekend WHITE SPRINGS The Florida Department of Environmental Protections Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park will host the 66th Annual Florida Folk Festival this weekend on the banks of the historic Suwannee River.
