The 29-acre (more or less) par cel that sits directly behind the coliseum and fairgrounds has been utilized by the county for years as parking for the Suwannee County Fair. After looking into buying the property for a handful of years, County Administrator Randy Har ris told the board Tuesday night the price has dropped signicantly lately and now was the time for the county to purchase, if it was still interested. If you want to purchase this piece of property and have it available for future generations with the expansion of the colise um and any other governmental uses, this is your opportunity, he said, adding it is a vital property in possible future expansion of the coliseum and fairgrounds. Were pretty well nished at the coliseum unless we get this property for expansion. Chairman Ricky Gamble agreed that, while there were no immedi ate plans for the property, it would be an asset for the county moving forward. If that piece sells and goes in to the wrong hands and used in a different manner, thats going to handicap a lot of things that go on out there, he said. Because we use that. I dont want to be 5-10 years down and say, Boy if we bought it when we had the opportunity, we denitely could have used it. The other commissioners agreed and unanimously approved the purchase at a total cost of $211,000. Harris then jokingly added Economic Development Director Alvin Jackson already has plans for the piece. Mr. Jackson suggested the Air port Hilton get constructed there, Harris said laughing. On the move The commissioners also agreed to an agreement with CSX and the Florida Department of Transporta tion to relocate the railroad cross ing at the catalyst site. As you all know, I started this back when I had hair, Harris said. This is a long time coming and were not nished yet. The agreement calls for CSX to remove the old crossing within 30 days of all parties signing. The moving of the crossing was needed with the county con structing a spur at the site on the western side of Live Oak. Harris said the new crossing would be roughly a quarter of a mile west of where the existing crossing sits. As part of constructing the new crossing, Harris told the commis sioners that CDBG administrators and the Department of Economic Opportunity in Tallahassee have agreed to let the county use left over CDBG grant funding from the rail spur project. In order to utilize that funding, the county would need to extend the road to the western edge of the Klausner Lumber One property. Im pretty encouraged at this point, Harris said, noting that there likely will be a handful of other agreements still coming. Open for business The board approved by a 4-1 vote to authorize the addition of a full-time employee for the admin istration/public works ofce with experience in MSTU and MSBU assessments. Commissioner Ronnie Rich ardson asked whether the county should look at outsourcing the work. We dont have a lot going on right now, said Richardson, who voted against. Harris replied: Actually, weve got a lot going on. Thats part of our problem. In addition to handling the MSBU duties, the new hire would also be charged with keeping up with the MSTU assessments, which include the solid waste and re. Harris said the county currently has ve MSBUs waiting to move forward but staff is behind trying to keep the process moving. We cant even get them start ed, Harris said. We just cant do it with everything else thats going on. Harris said the position would probably pay around $16 per hour. Water system check The commissioners gave the go-ahead for North Florida Pro fessional Services, Inc., to eval uate the Wellborn Water System to give the county an idea of whether it would be worth add ing to the countys system. Harris said the individuals currently running the system are nearing retirement and havent found someone willing to replace them. In addition to contacting the county, a private party has also been in discussion about taking over the system according to Harris. He added that the Flor ida Rural Water Association is conducting an appraisal on the system as well. We want to see if its some thing that were interested in, Harris said. We need to have a good idea of how sound the sys tem is. It was approved unanimously. Reducing inventory The nal item of the night caused concern for resident Bo Hancock. Ofcials at the Suwannee County Courthouse sent over a list of items that cannot be locat ed worth a total of $98,467.15 that it is removing from its in ventory. Hancock questioned how near ly $100,000 worth of equipment could just disappear. Where did it go? he asked. Did they ever exist? Harris said it was a good question but there was no way of knowing just from the list provided when the items were purchased or what happened to them. Although he surmised that they likely had been worn out and discarded. Harris said the county is con stantly working to get agencies and departments to clean up the old inventory lists. Somebody may have thrown them in a dumpster years ago, Harris said. Total, the list contained 34 items including a pair of DVR video systems and a pair of security systems that equaled $41,727.75 or close to half of the total cost. Gamble also pointed out the prices provided were the purchase prices and not the prices of the equipment after being used and replaced. Hancock also wanted to know why the boards policy for declar ing the items surplus and auction ing them wasnt followed. The judges at the courthouse dont fall under the boards direc tion, though. Gamble also said the constitu tional ofcers can create their own policies for their departments rath er than follow the boards. Meeting change The boards second meeting of the month was moved to Monday, June 18, at 6 p.m. It will be held at the Judicial Annex. County looks to add land by Coliseum LIVE OAK A Live Oak man was charged with a DUI after crash ing into the Nott Circle roundabout early Tuesday morning. According to the Live Oak Po lice Department, 39-year-old Roy Edward Stover was headed west on 11th Street a little after 3 a.m. when he crashed into the right center por tion of the roundabout. The LOPD release said Stovers vehicle struck several shrubs and large display boulders in the round about, causing significant damage to those items as well as his vehicle.

In last weeks article, I briey men tioned Governor George Franklin Drew, and thus today seemed like a good day to pass along additional information about him. Most of the following biography comes from the informative Biographical Souvenir of the States of Georgia and Florida: Containing Biographical Sketch es of the Representative Public, and many Early Settled Families in These States, published in 1889. George F. Drew. It is a popular Amer ican belief that we have men in abun dance capable of lling any position of trust and responsibility. Indeed the safety of the republic rests upon that fact, and must stand or fall by its truth or error. History so far, in our notions of life, has borne out the theory, and we have only to look about us to witness in every day life a proof of its soundness. Perhaps there has been no more noble example than the distinguished subject of this sketch. When, in 1876, Florida had been permitted by incompetent would-be statesmen to drift near to the brink of in solvency, the thinking conservative Dem ocrats of that State cast their eyes about for a man capable of saving her honor and regaining her credit. With one accord all eyes seemed to rest upon George F. Drew, and when the convention met he was nominated by acclamation. It is safe to say no governor of Florida ever en tered upon his duties under more embar rassing circumstances than he. The State had a bonded and oating debt of nearly $2,000,000. There was no money in the treasury; the industries of the State had not recovered from the depressing effects of 1873; State script, of which there was about $40,000 in the treasury, was worth only 75 cents on the dollar, and 7 per cent interest bearing bonds sold for only 65 cents on the dollar, while 6 per cent were worth but 60 cents. Such was the condition of Florida when George F. Drew put his sturdy hand to the helm of the State. Sanguine as had been the expectations of his friends, the fruits of Governor Drews administration far exceeded their fondest hopes. Retiring to private life af ter a single term, he left the nancial de partment so improved that Florida bonds were selling at a premium. The oating debt had been paid off. Taxes had been reduced each year of his administration. Public schools had been fostered, and the State had started upon a race with prog ress from which she has not yet lagged. It is said, and there is much evidence to show it, that most of our great men come from the farm. Be that as it may, in this in stance the mechanics bench may share the honor with the plow. Governor Drew is a native of the State of New Hampshire, he having been born at Alton, in that State, August 6, 1827. His father was a wellto-do farmer, who, while he expected his boys to work, as did their neighbors, believed in giving them every advantage of an education within his power. In obe dience to this sentiment and to Georges inclination, he was sent away to college at the age of twelve years. Unfortunately, or otherwise, unforeseen circumstances of a nancial nature caused Georges recall from school before his classical ed ucation had been completed. Sad as this must have been to the ambitious youth he did not repine, but instead took up the labors of the farm with a will to assist in retrieving his fathers fortunes. After two years of hard labor in this cause, affairs were so improved that he felt justied in going for himself, and George besought his father for permission to learn the ma chinists trade. After passing his appren ticeship he worked for some time in New York. While there he met many traders and merchants from the South, and, among others, made the acquaintance of Col. John G. Winter, a banker of Colum bus, Ga. It was through this gentlemans inuence that Mr. Drew decided to come South. Col. Winter was about to embark in manufacturing machinery, and he saw in the New England youth the talent he wanted to assure the success of his ven ture. It was in 1848 Mr. Drew built the rst stationary engine that was ever made in Columbus, Ga. Ambitious as the youth had been to acquire a knowledge of the use of tools, but a few years sufced to develop the fact that his active brain was continual ly conceiving more than his two hands could do. In proof of this we nd him, in 1853, at the head of an extensive milling business in the vicinity of Albany, Ga. Gathering together the remnants of a shattered fortune, Mr. Drew left Georgia in 1865 and settled in Florida. Being identied with the milling interests he was again led to invest in that indus try and purchased a mill in Suwannee FRIDAY, JUNE 8, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 3A Suwannee Democrat prints the entire arrest record each week.

This, while a nancial success in a small way, served only as a step ping-stone to the vast and successful enterprises in the same line Mr. Drew has since been identied with. The arduous executive labors of his gubernatorial term interrupted for a time his private enterprises; but, returned to private life, none would ever know, from word or act of his, that he had ever held the highest ofce and honors in the gift of the people of his State. While his exten sive milling interests still claim much of his attention, he is also at the head of the most extensive mercantile house in the State, under the style of George F. Drew & Co., and is also connected with many other local enterprises, and is regarded as one of the foremost men in mercan tile and nancial circles. Socially Gov. Drew is the peer of his contemporaries, and being still in all the vigor of an able manhood, Florida has reason to hope for many years of usefulness from this one of her many valued adopted citizens. Unfortunately for George F. Drew, his usefulness to Florida only lasted anoth er decade. By September 1900, the health of his wife, Amelia, had taken a turn for the worse. Drew wrote to a daughter that when his wife was gone, he didnt want to go on living. On September 26, Amelia passed away. Drew made funeral arrange ments for his wife and then sat down in a chair on the veranda of their Jacksonville home. After drawing one long breath, then gasping a couple of times, he died. Doctors diagnosed him as dying from a broken heart. Drews family continued to be inu ential in Suwannee County and the sur rounding areas for another two decades.

The bulk of this production comes out of the Suwannee Valley and the panhan dle totaling more than 670 million pounds of peanuts annually. Within the Suwannee Valley region, there were approximately 81,600 planted acres of peanuts with a farm gate val ue estimated at $69 million dollars. Environmental Impact Sustainable farming includes operating in an econom ically feasible way, while maintaining the health of the land and surrounding environment at the same time. Peanuts are a popular option because most producers use minimal inputs on the crop thereby decreasing environ mental impact. Peanuts are a crop that ts very well into an agricul tural rotation sandy soils of North Florida. The peanut is very resilient in our unpredictable climate but does not respond well to excessive soil moisture and saturation for prolonged periods of time. Furthermore, the peanut plant is much less water hun gry than other crops and many growers without the op tion to irrigate can plant dryland acres and still maintain a prot. Additionally, the peanut is classied as a legume which adds nutrients back to the soil. Overall, peanuts require less fertilizer applications and other costly inputs compared to other traditional eld crops. Peanut Producer Update During the 2017 growing season, peanut producers in North-Central Florida experienced a massive dive in yield production. Yields were reduced by about 1,000 pounds plus per acre on average in the affected area. Those affected most by this peanut collapse (of un known cause) were located in the Suwannee River Basin region of the state. The amount of peanuts impacted by this widespread decline has been estimated at roughly 25,000 acres in this part of the state. An additional caveat to this anomaly was that although yields were drastically reduced last year, peanut quality and grade were maintained for the most part. A few of the abnormal challenges faced by growers last year included: and nematodes. during critical times of peanut plant development and bloom set. throughout the growing season. issue by bringing in more moisture and caused physical damage to the vines due to high winds. Halfway through the growing season, late planted pea nuts exhibited symptoms of yellowing of leaf margins followed by premature browning and defoliation. During this time, multiple diseases and disorders were showing up all at once, further weakening the already frail plants. At harvest, peg strength was subpar, and peanuts pulled off the weak vines easily during digging and harvest, leaving the pods behind in the ground. Moving into this growing season, avoid planting peanuts in the same location peanuts were planted last year. If you were able to plant early, that is a plus as the early planted peanuts were not generally affected by last years decline issue. Use soil moisture sensors to monitor soil water, and only irrigate when the crop calls for an irrigation treatment based on the sensor data. Lastly, it is very important to start out with a strong fungicide program to treat emerging disease, as we have already begun the season with heavy moisture. Contact the UF/IFAS Suwannee County Extension ofce for resources to help with a plan for your spray program or information on managing soil moisture technology.

Country Showdown returning to Music Park Preliminaries set for June 29, July 6, 20 rfn BRANFORD During May, Branford Elementa ry School celebrated the men and women in uniform through an Adopt and Ofcer program. Organized by teachers Tina Roush and Jennifer Winnett, BES adopted 14 ofcers from the Suwannee County Sheriffs Ofce, Lafayette County Sheriffs Ofce and Florida Highway Patrol and donated a bag of goodies to eachs local ofce. The program began as an idea to honor the local ofcers, but according to Winnett turned into much more. Children learned the value of giving to others, learned how important our men and women in uniform are, and were given valuable time to bond with these local heroes, Winnett said. With donations from local businesses, parents, chil dren and teachers, the school was able to donate good ies and gift cars to each ofcer. The Rotary Club of Branford donated popsicles for the program fundraiser that raised nearly $500. The BES Student Council and Safety Patrol donated gift cards and bags, Goo-Good Car Wash donated car fresheners and Just Teasin Hair Salon and Main Street Station donated gift certicates. Brian Barrs was the programs liaison with the SCSO. Ofcers adopted include Barrs, Zack Clark, Brad Minks, Caleb McInnis, Jeff Miria, Joe Carey, Kyle Durr, Chris Ferguson, Justin Stout, Clayton Watson, Jose Garcia and Jacob Williamson with the SCSO. Jay Harris from the LCSO and Ethan Sumner with FHP were also adopted. Winnett said the project was a success and the school hopes to honor the local heroes again next year. trbfnf rfnfnff fntfr ffntfn nrrnrrnr rnrt rnrrrfnfnrftrnn rrr fnrnffnrf rfnfnfffn tfrt fr fnfnfffnf rtffnrfrfn fnnrffrrnnfrn rrr rnffrfnrffrnf f

On Monday, the Supreme Court showed that loose lips can sink cases. In Colorado in 2012, a Christian baker declined the request of a samesex couple to decorate a cake for a reception celebrating their marriage in Massachusetts. The baker said that compelling him to put his expressive activity of cake artistry in the service of an act his faith condemns and that was not legal in Colorado would violate his First Amendment right to free speech, which includes the freedom not to speak, and to the free exercise of religion (which also is his basis for refusing to make Halloween cakes). Rather than nd, as would not have been burdensome, bakers with no ob jections to their request, the couple abandoned what once was the liveand-let-live spirit of the gay rights movement. In the truculent spirit of this era, they sicced the Colorado Civil Rights Commission on the baker. It said he violated the states law against sexual-orientation discrimination. On Monday, the court held 7-2 for the baker, but only for him Writing for the court, Justice An thony Kennedy (with Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Clarence Thomas, Stephen Breyer, Samuel Alito, Elena Kagan and Neil Gorsuch joining in the judgment) concluded that the Civil Rights Commission manifested animus regarding the bakers religious beliefs. For example, a notably obtuse member said that despicable rhetoric about freedom of religion had been used to justify slavery and the Holocaust. The nation remains resolutely com mitted to the public accommodations section of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which Colorado law anticipated in an 1885 law: If you open your doors for business, you must serve all who enter. Furthermore, it is maddeningly problematic to begin carving out ex emptions from obedience to laws of general applicability that are neutral regarding religion. Wedding planners, photographers, ower arrangers, even chauffeurs who have religious objec tions to same-sex weddings can claim, with varying degrees of plausibility, that their activities are expressive and therefore their varying degrees of participation in religious events implicate the two First Amendment provisions the baker invoked. In this case, the court prudently avoided trying to promulgate a limiting principle that would distinguish es sentially expressive conduct from that with merely negligible or incidental expressive elements. But because the principle remains unformulated, other cases will come to the court lacking the sort of convenient escape hatch that the court found in the commis sions loose lips. Looking down the road, Kennedy on Monday warned that there are no doubt innumerable goods and services that no one could argue implicate the First Amendment. First Amendment protections of freedom of speech are now more comprehensively attacked than ever before. The Alien and Sedition Acts of 1790s (which were allowed to ex pire), the abuses of the post-World War I Red Scare and the McCar thyism of the early 1950s arose from temporary public fevers, and ended when the fevers broke. Todays at tacks, emanating from authoritarian intellectuals, will not be as transitory as a mere political mood because they are theoretical: They argue that free speech is a chimera speech often is a mere manifestation of an individuals retrograde socialization, aka false consciousness, hence it is not morally serious and does not merit protection. Or they argue that free speech is only contingently important it should be balanced against superior claims, such as community harmony or listen ers serenity. Because attacks on freedom of speech are today ubiquitous and ag gressive, its defenders understandably, Loose lips sank the Colorado bakers case The Suwannee Democrat welcomes letters from readers on matters of public interest, with the following guidelines: Letters must contain your full name, ad dress, daytime phone number and city of residence.

They just plain eluded recognizing children that excelled in their classes and just ran them through like cattle through a herd chute. If youre not going to recognize kids, youre going to hurt them. You gotta start recognizing kids for achieving, even if they are achieving above other kids. This society where you show up and get a trophy just because you showed up, is hurting our kids.

A danger in the cake case was that victory for the baker would make First Amendment law incoherent, even absurd: Expressive activities merit some constitutional protection, but not ev erything expressive is as important as speech, which Americas founda tional political document protects because speech communicates ideas for Continued From Page 6A Loose From Page One to check the air quality. According to Sommers, there were an additional 50 gas cylinders in the welding shop and ofcials were concerned about possible damage to those tanks. With help from the state re marshal, Occu pational Safety and Health Administration and Florida Department of Transporta tion, those cylinders were checked and none were damaged. Naturally we dont want this to happen any more out there, St. John said Wednesday morning as of cials were conducting the investigation.

Those smiles you see right there, theyre not just for the camera, said Stapleton, who attended for the rst time last year with his daughters Aubrey, Alexis and Nicky. Thats what all the girls you see that night are like. Its just a good time. And its a good time for the dads. Those smiles, that fun is what the Suwannee County Chamber of Com merce is looking to create once again June 16 at the third annual dance at the Suwannee County Coliseum. The event will last from 6-10 p.m. and tickets are $25. The memories, though, are price less. Which is why the Chamber con tinues to push for holding the event. This event is different from our other events, Chamber Executive Director Jimmy Norris said. Its something that we give back, that we want to do and share it with the community. We felt it was a needed piece, something that was lacking in the community and if you attend the event and see the connections be tween the dads and the daughters if it just makes a difference in one, or two, or three peoples lives, for me thats why Im so passionate and sold on it. Stapleton, who is also the events chair, added: Its about community with this event. Its about families. This one, this is the one event that warms your heart. In fact, Stapleton wasnt the lone rst-time attendee moved by last years experience. Alison and Jeff Scott attended for the rst time with Jeffs daughters Joy and AnnMarie. They enjoyed the experience so much that Cheek & Scott is this years title sponsor. There will be plenty of ways and opportunities to make those memories as well. In addition to a night full of dancing with DJ Salt Life, Chuck Bur nett, handling the music, the candy bar and chocolate fountain are returning once again. And after trying a sit-down dinner a year ago, this years event is moving back to nger foods with pizza from Little Caesars, chicken ngers and wings from Zaxbys as well as some hors doeuvres from 11th Street Kitch en. Norris said the change comes as a way to free up more time for dancing, particularly for the younger daughters that are anxious to get moving. We loosened it back up a little bit, he said. This years dance will also feature a dance competition with awards for best dancer among the daughters as well as fathers. The criteria for choos ing the top dancers, though, is still being determined. We dont just show up, we show out, Chamber President Brandon Fer nald said about the dance contest. The Chamber plans to show out once again with its balloon drop. After featuring 300 balloons the rst year, it doubled that a year ago. This year will again have at least 600. I dont think nothing about balloon drops, Stapleton said. But girls think a lot about balloon drops. They go crazy. It is something to see. Tickets can be purchased at the Chamber, 212 N. Ohio Ave., or by contacting Karen Hurst at the Cham ber at 386-362-3071. A limited num ber are still available. The Chamber also has a few tickets available for families in need. Continued From Page 1A Dance The operation involved undercover detectives and agents posing as children online in an attempt to deter child predators from actual children, per the SJSO re lease. The undercover investigators were contacted by numerous subjects and were exposed to graphic and disturbing subject matter, according to the release. Many of those subjects requested to meet in person to sexually abuse the child persona. Others arrested were 28-year-old Habiel Isa Quiroz Carrasco, of Jacksonville; 31-year-old Gary Dale Hickey Jr., of St. Augustine; 22-year-old Matthew Jo seph-Ryan Tatge, of Palm Coast; 23-year-old Joshua Ryan Solana, of St. Augustine; 46-year-old Richard Paul Roberts, of Daytona Beach; 22-year-old Nicho las Daniel Jewel, of Jacksonville; 26-year-old Ronald Blaine Stafford II, who is homeless; and 46-year-old Kenneth Brian Hanger, of St. Augustine. The operation was led by the SJSO Internet Crimes Against Children Detectives under the auspices of the North Florida ICAC Task Force. Assisting agencies in cluded the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Homeland Security Investigations, the U.S. Attorneys Ofce, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the State At torneys Ofce in the 7th Circuit, the Alachua and Put nam county sheriffs ofces as well as the Jacksonville Sheriffs Ofce and the St. Augustine Beach, Orange Park and Gainesville police departments.

According to Powell, the general funds balance increased by $706,465. That was an increase of 3.39 percent of the countys revenues the past year. That follows an increase of about 7.5 percent the previous year. Powell noted that under Florida statutes, a county is only allowed to budget 95 percent of its revenues. That is commendable, he said, pointing out that the 5 percent rule is used to help countys build up those reserves. Youve had two good years for sure where youve increased reserves. According to Powell, the countys capital outlay had enough improvements through paving and grant funding to counter the de preciation elsewhere. He said usually the depreciation percentage increases year after year. Powell also told the board that there were no ndings during the auditing process for the board, nor any of the constitutional ofcers. That is very commend able, he said. Chairman Ricky Gamble said: The short version is, we had a good year, right? Powell agreed. Financially, I would say you had a successful year, Powell added. Youre up to a good level now. Budget workshops Later in Tuesdays meet ing, the commissioners agreed to set a pair of bud get workshops for the up coming scal year for Aug. 13-14 at the Judicial Annex. The workshops will begin at 9 a.m. each day.

The meetings are free and open to the public. Park specialist to speak at Native Plant Society meeting public persuasion. Friends of the First Amendment should not be impatient for the court to embark on drawing ever-ner distinctions about which commercial transactions, by which kinds of believers, in volving which kinds of ceremonies, implicate the Constitutions free speech and free exercise guar antees. Taking religious advice, the court on Mon day acted on the principle that sufcient unto the day is the evil thereof, which means: Cope with todays ample troubles and cope with tomor rows when they arrive, as surely they will.

Sports SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK FRIDAY, JUNE 8, 2018 michael.jones@ganews.com LIVE OAK Changes are coming to the Florida High School Athletic Associ ation baseball playoffs. On Monday, the FHSAA announced that baseball playoffs will no longer be one game per week. For Class 1A-4A, regional seminals will be held Tuesday with regional nals following on Friday. For Class 5A-9A, games will be played Wednesday, Saturday and Tuesday lead ing up to the Final Four. It was a welcome change for many coaches, including Suwannee head coach Justin Bruce. You cant ride one arm all the way through. It gives every team a chance, Bruce said. Under the old format with a week in between games teams were able to use one standout pitcher all the way until the state championship. Of the four area teams, Class 5A Su wannee looks to benet the most in the short term. The Bulldogs were stocked with pitching the last two seasons and had some excellent regular season re sults. But they failed to make the play offs in 2017 and were knocked out in a regional seminal this season. Even though the Bulldogs have gradu ated many key players from those teams, they bring back eight starters next year and will be deep in pitching once again. michael.jones@gaflnews.com LIVE OAK Suwannee shortstop Hueston Morrill was selected by the Los Angeles Angels in the 36th round of the 2018 MLB Draft on Wednesday. Morrill was an excellent two-way player for the Bull dogs as a pitcher and hitter. In his senior year, Morrill went 7-3 with a 1.07 ERA and struck out 94 in 58 1-3 innings. He batted .289 with seven home runs and 24 RBIs. As Suwannees ace, he pitched the Bulldogs into the playoffs and also lifted SHS to its first playoff victory since 2011. Morrill finished his career as a Bulldog with a 1.40 ERA and 153 strikeouts in 117 1-3 innings. He batted .291 with 12 home runs, 44 RBIs and 25 stolen bases, hit ting mostly from the leadoff spot. Morrill signed his letter-of-intent in November to play for the Oklahoma State Cowboys. Hell now have to decide to sign with the Angels or play in college for the Cowboys. This marks the second straight season a Suwannee High grad was selected in the MLB draft. Catcher Sam McMil lan was taken by the Tigers in 2017. Hes been an awesome player, Suwannee High coach Justin Bruce said of Morrill. A guy that loves to win. You look back at the last two years and say, Is this really happening? Did we just have two guys get draft ed? They worked hard for everything. Took no short cuts. Overall, Morrill becomes the 11th SHS grad to be taken in the MLB draft, the sixth selected straight out of high school. rfn rf rfnntbbnff bb LIVE OAK The Diamond Divas 8U softball team, coached by Luis Royero and sponsored by Eternity Cattle Company, recently nished their season with a 10-0 record in the Su wannee Parks and Recre ation League.
