jamie.wachter@ganews.com LIVE OAK The Live Oak City Council awarded a contract to have the remainder of Miller Street paved at Tuesday nights meeting. That progress didnt allevi ate nearby residents concerns though. Gary Caldwell and Anita Wil liams addressed the council on their desire and that of other residents that live along Miller Street to add a stop sign and potentially other safety devices on the road. The issue is safety, Caldwell said, adding that there is a bus stop in the area as well as an aus titic child living there. You look at the ow of trafc thats there, its all about safety. Lets think proactive. Lets not wait until theres an accident. Lets not wait until that kid or any other kid is harmed on that corner to decide to now put a stop sign there. Williams added: What we dont want to pay for is accidents that happened because we didnt put a four-way stop at Long and Miller. The four-way stop that the resi dents are seeking would be placed at Miller Street and Long Ave., about halfway between U.S. Highway 129 and Rail road Ave. Frank Davis, the outgoing District 4 councilor, said he is in favor of the stop sign if that is what those res idents desire. However, one member of the council stressed the desire to see data that supports the need before mak ing that decision, one they couldnt make Tuesday on the non-agenda item as council President Bennie Thomas reiterated several times. You have to have educated information to make an educat ed decision, David Burch said. Youre asking me to vote on stuff that I dont have educated just because you think its a good idea. I dont run and you dont either, you dont run the ow of trafc. You have to talk to engineers and DOT and get infor mation. You have to have more information before you ask me to vote on it, I need better informa tion. That is my concern, I need more information. Thomas also wanted to know what Live Oak Police Chief Buddy Williams thought about the issue. City Manager Ron Williams said Wednesday that its not the police chiefs decision. Practically, and this is every where Ive been, this is an admin istrative issue and not a political one, Ron Williams said. It should be a real trafc ow review. He added that according to the Uniform Code for Trafc Safety Devices, trafc ow studies need to be conducted before making deci sions on where to place signs. It has to make sense, Williams said. Four-way stops imply that there is generally equality in the trafc ow. Obviously in this case that is not the case. Long has nowhere near the trafc ow that Miller does. Thus the reason for wanting to not stop the trafc on the main thoroughfare. Thomas, too, said the issue was one that needed to be discussed and solved with the city manager in stopping the discussion on the road during Tuesdays meeting. This is an administrative issue, Thomas said. We had no business discussing this. City manager, this is in your hands, you handle it.

McDonalds offering Fathers Day special Relocation sweetens Wild Blackberry Festival rf jamie.wachter@ganews.com JASPER Not even a late venue change could sour the 8th annual Wild Blackberry Fes tival. With rain throughout the week, Saturdays festival was moved to Jasper City Park on Friday from Heritage Village. If anything, the move may have left organizers in an even sweeter mood about the event. I think it did really well, said Renee Daigle, with the Hamilton County Historical Society. I think it was actually better having it in the park because I think more people saw the event than if we had it back where we originally wanted it. I think we pulled in some off-road trafc. Those that stopped in had plenty to see. The park and 1st Ave. NE were full with around 40 vendor booths that included arts and crafts to foods that included jams and jellies to kettle corn and a variety of other fair foods. The festival also included horse and buggy rides as well as an antique car show. It also began with a pancake breakfast from 8-10 a.m., which led into performances from Ted Teddy Mac Elvis McMullen and the Legends. Nearly $2,000 was raised for the Historical Society, which beneted from this years festi val. Although we really like it at (Heritage Vil lage) because the Old Jail would have been open and people could have gone in and seen which was the whole point of doing it this year, Daigle said. But I think we drew more people from the road. ntbbnttbtbtbt ntbbttb ftttt ntntbb t tt bt ntbbt btttbnt

self-sufcient for the hundreds of workers. These communities revolved around Scotts businesses, and used their own currency bearing T. T. Scotts name. The workers built everything in the communities, including rail lines, but there was no plumbing or elec tricity. Scott himself was the de facto sher iff, keeping law and order. One of his sons noted 70 years later that his father would collect his workers guns every weekend to reduce violence. However, once the timber was gone, these communities dried up and disappeared. In 1933, Scott returned to Live Oak, where he passed operations of his local sawmill to one of his sons. Scott did not stay idle, however, participating in more timber operations in Florida and Georgia. Much of the year was spent in Miami, where he had major timber and banking operations, but he considered Live Oak his home and maintained his residence here for many years. Scotts interests expanded far beyond timber. In 1921, he purchased his rst stock in the First National Bank of Live Oak.

The man under discussion today was one such citizen. Thurber Talmadge (T. T.) Scott was born in Sumter County, Georgia, on May 27, 1887. He lived most of his early years in Cordele, where his father was tax collector, farmer and storekeeper. Scott began work ing outside the home at the age of 14, and by 15 was working in timber. At the age of 17, he had established his own business and was a sawmill operator. In May 1916, Scott moved to Madison County, Florida, to run a sawmill there. He cut out timber in Madison and nearby Taylor Counties, and in 1920 moved to Live Oak. Scotts rst sawmill in Live Oak was located where the tobacco warehouses would stand for decades off Houston Street. Within a few short years, Scott had cut much of the surrounding timber in Suwan nee County and moved to South Florida, where he purchased tens of thousands of acres. After four years in Polk County and four years in Osceola County, Scott had established himself as a leading timber expert in Florida. Several South Florida communities, including Sumica and Ke nansville, were established around Scotts sawmills and related businesses, becoming 1931, with local millionaire W. J. Hillman in declining health, Scott purchased the remainder of Hillmans sizeable stock and took over as vice president of the bank, soon holding a majority of its stock. In 1951, he sold the bulk of his First National Bank stock to P. C. Crapps, Jr., but re mained as director. Scott also had an active interest in the Hamilton County Bank in Jasper. Scott helped saved the tobacco market in Suwannee County in 1933 by nancing lo cal growers. As a result of Scotts nancial assistance, sales went from 240,000 pounds in 1932 to more than 3 million pounds in 1933. He also loaned money to erect ad ditional tobacco warehouses in Live Oak, and the local crop continued to thrive for decades until the dangers of tobacco were well-documented. In 1940, Scott purchased two skyscrapers in Miami, the Security Building and the Congress Building (both still in existence), for $480,150 (nearly $5 million in 2018 dol lars) at an auction when the previous owner went bankrupt. In 1948, Scott purchased a large hotel in Lakeland and a smaller one in Miami. A large citrus grove near Fort Pierce was added to his possessions soon thereaf ter. Scott operated all of these companies until selling his business interests in 1951. Scott was named chairman of the Board of Trustees for the Suwannee County Hos pital Board when it was established, and was the driving force to establish the Su wannee County Hospital, which was com pleted in 1948. Scott remained on the Board of Trustees until 1951. More on Mr. Scott next week!

According to the staff re port in the councils pack et, the large live oak tree at 520 Santa Fe St. SE was described as a (d)anger to house roots interfering with foundation. Large tree hanging over top of house will completely destroy house if any of these limbs hit house. The tree, which is around 48 to 52 inches in diameter is located just seven feet away from the 1980s era house. Planning and Zoning Director George Curtis said staff recommended the removal based on those safety concerns. Paul Williams, the se nior forester for Suwannee County with the Florida Forest Service, reviewed the site in May and deter mined it was a heritage tree and also recommended its removal. My recommendation is to approve the remov al based on safety issues and the high probability of foundation and roof damage to the house in the future, Paul Williams said in the ndings included in the packet. Also, the tree has signs of heart rot from past pruning that did not heal over correctly. The two Live Oaks to the south east of the tree are suppressing the tree in question and causing it to grow over and very close to the roof. Ordinance No. 1169, which protects heritage live oak trees, allows for their removals if: structural damage from roots; sorption of large amounts of water causing soil ex pansion and contractions; other structural problems to buildings or underground facilities; hazard; weakened by disease, age, storm, fire or other injury; reasonable development of the site. The council approved the removal unanimously. Also during Tuesdays meeting, the council passed Resolution 1809 which ratified the citys Business Incentive Program to match the program that exists in Su wannee County. The council then also approved a resolution to offer incentives to Pre cision Auto & Muffler, LLC. The final reading was also held for Ordinance 1419, which tweaks the language in the citys land development regula tions to make them more business friendly. This is the Don Allen amendment, city manag er Ron Williams said.

Then 4-H Camp Cherry Lake is your summertime des tination! Located on the beautifully scenic Cherry Lake in Madi son County, 4-H Camp Cherry Lake is sure to keep your youth buzzing all year round. While the traditional summer camp programs such as kayaking, swimming, recreational sports and archery are available, Cherry Lakes prime location on the water allows for great opportunities in marine and environmental science education. A typical day at camp involves three square meals, free time for campers to participate in a wide variety of activities, hands-on experiential ed ucation sessions, and campres that allow youth to round out their days by singing their favorite camp songs or participate in skits and games. An important aspect of a residen tial camping experience, such as 4-H Camp Cherry Lake, is the responsi bility that the youth have over their cabins. While your child is at camp, they will experience group living in a cabin setting where important life skills are learned. These life skills include getting along with others and consideration for others. Campers assume full responsibility for their cabin and compete for the daily clean cabin award while also helping with dining room and general camp chores in a team atmosphere. Along with those life skills learned within the cabin, parents/guardians have also reported that their camp ers made improvements in the areas of self-esteem, leadership, social skills, character development, deci sion-making, and citizenship because of attending 4-H camp. Youth have reported that they learned how to make their own decisions, be respon sible for their own actions, and felt accepted for who they are because of 4-H camp. It is our goal here in Suwannee County to allow youth the amazing opportunity to spend a week at Cherry Lake, make new friends and memories, gain the life skills listed earlier in this article, and experience one of the best weeks of their lives. If you have or know any youth that are interested in spending a week at 4-H Camp Cherry Lake, give the Ex tension Ofce a call at 386-362-2771 and ask for Derby Sale, 4-H Youth Development Extension Agent. Derby Sale is the 4-H Youth Devel opment Extension Agent at the UF/ IFAS Suwannee County Extension ofce. UF/IFAS Extension in Suwan nee County is an equal opportunity institution. tb trrrnrfrfnnrrfrrnfnf b fnffrbr Open Mic Night with Lyndie brings new talent to SOSMP LIVE OAK Open Mic Night with Lyndie at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park brought out new talent and great artists from North Florida and South Georgia on June 1.

SEE ERA, PAGE 7A Opinion SERVING SUWANNEE COUNTY SINCE 1884 A PAGE 6 rfrfnftrbfbf ftfrrbfbf Members of the Suwannee Democrat editorial board are Jeff Masters, Publisher, and Jamie Wachter, Editor. Masters and Wachter are joined on the board by community members Jim Holmes, Bruce Kemmerer and Otha White Sr. rfntb b rfbb b ttt rb tnt bb bbf b brb rrft bfbb rfrb bnb nt rfbb b f fb WASHINGTON Karl Marx was no more mistaken than usual when he said that historic people and events appear twice, rst as tragedy, then as farce. Todays advocates of a musty fragment of the 1970s, the Equal Rights Amendment, are demonstrating that something that begins as farce can reappear as tragedy, because abuse of the Constitution is tragic. With Illinois slouching toward bank ruptcy, its Legislature must have better things to do, yet it recently ratied the ERA. But can a legislative cadaver be ratied? On March 22, 1972, a stampeding Congress sent to the states for ratication this constitutional amendment: Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged ... on account of sex. Without seriously con sidering what this would add to the 14th Amendments guarantee to any person of equal protection of the laws, the House and Senate passed it 354-24 and 84-8, respectively. The irony of a gallant Congress behaving cavalierly in several senses was surely lost on ERA sup porters. Legislators sworn to support and defend the Con stitution voted to clutter it with language the meaning of which they did not could not know. The meaning was irrelevant to the main purpose, which was to grand stand with an amendment the rst, and for many advo cates the sufcient, function of which was conscious ness-raising to put women in the Constitution. Another purpose was to arm liberal judges with language into which they could pour whatever content they want ed. So, the ERA would either be a constitutional nullity or license for unconstrained judicial improvising. Because the Constitutions framers believed that the most important decisions should not be taken on slender majorities, and that frequent amendments would impair the Constitutions majesty, they required amendments to pass both houses of Congress with two-thirds majorities and receive ratication by three-quarters of the states. Since then, constitutional morality has evolved the princi ple that ratication should occur during a predetermined period of deliberation, reecting (in the Supreme Courts words) a sufciently contemporaneous consensus of at least (nowadays) 38 states at relatively the same pe riod. So, Congress, as has been customary since the 18th Amendment (Prohibition, 1919), required ERA ratica tion within seven years, which was generous: The rst 10 amendments (aka the Bill of Rights) were ratied in 27 ERA began as a farce but has ended in tragedy 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.

When they had the lawnmower races, you gave Len Sta pleton good coverage. Now, with your Father-Daughter Dance article, you go back to last year and pull up a Sta pleton photo and put it on the front page. Last year, real ly? Who went back into the archives and pulled the photo up for you? Whats going to happen for the rest of the campaign? Equal coverage perhaps. How about an expla nation concerning this from the Suwannee Democrat. Reading the Rant & Rave today and I see where this young man or woman suggest the President can not par don himself. He can pardon anyone. You should read the Constitution and the rights of our President and constitu tional investigations of people. Investigations should not take over six months. Its already been over a year and they havent been able to prove anything about his guilt of connections with Russia. Thats all concerning that. I hope you didnt stop taking the TV guide in your paper. I missed it this week. I hope it was an accident that it got left out. Ive lived in District 4 of Suwannee County for 55 years in the Wellborn area. In this time, weve had two or three good county commissioners. I understand Mr. Sessions is not running for re-election. Ive also noticed we have two has-beens running. One of these is a hasbeen in District 1. So hes moved to District 4 to try his luck here. We dont need no has-beens as commission ers in our district. Theres been a problem in the imme diate area that I live in for 50 years and I could not get any help to alleviate it from the prior commissioners. Our immediate has-been commissioner spent several thousand dollars in the Wellborn area prior to the last election to get votes and still lost. I contacted Mr. Sessions less than six months after he was elected about the problem that Id had for 46 years. And he had the county crews x it. Thanks Mr. Sessions. By the way, I think we have two viable candidates running for commissioner. Please vote for new blood in our district. Again, we dont need no has-beens. Pretty sure no place else in our country can you build & occupy a house with NO WINDOWS at all, only in Suwannee Co. I had to have windows,a permit,inspection & COd. Fire codes absolutely require windows, not here though> Bet the State Fire Marshall will put an end to this double standard if they ever answered the phone. They might want to talk to some paid ofcials round here too Im thinking. Enough with the double standards, its not legal! Walter Williams states (Suwannee Democrat --Diver sity obsession is leading to decline) Universities and other institutions have started watering down standards and requirements in order to attract more minorities and women. Doctor Williams assumes that traditional standards were well thought out. After all, he acquired his PhD ac cording to those standards, therefore....hmm. rfn Rant & Rave FRIDAY, JUNE 15, 2018 Jamie Wachter Editor jamie.wachter@ganews.com This poll is not scientic and reects the opinions of only those Internet users who have chosen to participate.

Leaving aside the 27th Amendment pertain ing to congressional salary increases (dormant for 203 years, resuscitated in the an ti-Congress fever of 1992), the average time for ratify ing amendments since the rst 10 has been 16 months, and no amendment has tak en even four years. The 26th Amendment (lowering the voting age to 18) took less than four months. Hawaii ratied the ERA the day Congress passed it. Nebraska, rushing to be second, did it wrong and had to do it again. Twenty states ratied it in three months, most without hearings. In January 1977, four years and 10 months into the process, Indiana became the 35th and last state to ratify it. Twen ty-six of the 35 explicitly referred to the seven-year deadline in their resolutions of ratication. When the seven years expired, those supposedly seeking equal treatment for women sought and received special treat ment. By a simple majority, not the two-thirds required for constitutional amend ments, a supine Congress extended the deadline for 39 months but only for states that had not ratied it, in order to prevent new rescissions. It died in 1982, in its 123rd month, having gone longer (65 months) without a single additional states ratication than it took to get all of its original 35. By which time ve of the 35 (including, delicious ly, Nebraska) had rescinded their ratications. The only federal court to rule on the four-year exten sion held it unconstitutional, and said all rescissions were valid. Now, however, ERA advocates argue that the clock can never expire on ratication states can Continued From Page 6A ERA vote over and over (as Illi nois has done) until they rat ify it, and no ratication can be rescinded. In 2017, Ne vada ratied the cadaver, so ERA proponents insist they are just one state away from victory. But, inconveniently, ERA supporters in Congress have repeatedly reintroduced it (most recently in January 2017), thereby conceding that the process must begin again. Which is farcical. In 1972, there were 13 women in the House and two in the Senate. Today there are 90 in the House and 23 in the Senate, reecting 46 years of legal and social changes that a prompt ratication of the ERA would not have has tened and that consignment of the ERA to the attic of 1970s nostalgia hip-hug ging bell-bottoms, etc. will not impede.

He hopes to address what he sees as a breakdown in communication within the city government once back in ofce. The biggest obstacle I see right now is there seems to be a communi cation problem between people that want to develop property and city hall, Stewart said. I think theyre making some head way on that and hopefully we can continue to just work on that and make it better. Crawford had pushed for change and improvements as a resident before decid ing to run. His desire to try and continue that work on the council, though, fell short. Stewart received 45 votes during the week of early voting, 82 absentee ballots and 60 more during Tues days voting. Crawford, meanwhile, had 26 votes during early voting, 48 more on the ab sentee ballots and then was chosen 31 times Tuesday. Stewart and Crawford reached the runoff after topping the four-man race Continued From Page 1A Stewart That didnt stop the council, though, from awarding a bid to pave Miller Street later in the meeting. Despite the bids surpass ing the citys budgeted es timate by nearly $100,000, Ron Williams recommend ed the board approve the bid and move money from other projects to cover the cost, which it did unani mously. Curts Construction, out of White Springs, re ceived the bid at a total of $347,894.99. The city had budgeted $250,000 for the project that Williams expects to begin later this summer. We have seen, across the board, and I think its as an industry, bid prices are going up, said city engineer Lane Lucas, of Eutaw Engineering. Con tractors are getting busy, the economy is getting better, theyre getting busy. What weve seen for the last 10 years, since 2008 or so, contractors have been hungry so theyve been do ing it to keep people work ing. Now theyre doing it to make money. I think if we were to wait three months and bid it again, I think you could add 5-10 percent to that number. The residents near Miller Street, though, expect more issues once the project ends. Caldwell said a recent trip to work alerted him to one problem already when 11 cars were backed up on Miller as one car was trying to make a left-hand ed turn onto U.S. 129. He said a turn lane is needed, although that will have to gain Florida Department of Transportation approval. Its something he expects will only worsen with time. That is an issue that Continued From Page 1A Residents to ll the open position in Mays election. Stewart re ceived 109 votes and Craw ford had 77 then, nishing ahead of John W. Hill and Jerry Poole. Stewart will join Robinti na Reed as new councilors when they are sworn in at the July 10 meeting. Reed defeated incumbent John Yulee Sr. in the May race for the District 1 seat. Frank Davis, the current council member from Dis trict 4, will also be sworn in as mayor next month, replacing the retiring Sonny Nobles. The 292 ballots cast was just 39.04 percent of the 748 registered voters in the district. When the ofcer turned on his ashing lights, the suspect turned west on Duval St., accelerating and refusing to stop, the report states. According to the report, the suspect continued to ee on Duval St. as the ofcer activated his siren, even leaving the roadway before Lime Ave., swerv ing into an open eld and nearly losing control, be fore making a sharp right turn onto Howard St. After slowing down and almost stopping before the intersection with 133rd Road, the suspect accel erated onto 133rd Road, driving recklessly, before making an abrupt U-turn in the ditch and a yard, spin ning back on the roadway, the report states. Heading back east in the westbound lane, the suspect attempted to drive into a second patrol car, forcing the ofcer to drive into the ditch to avoid the head-on collision, accord ing to the report. While the car was still moving, the suspect jumped from the vehicle and ed on foot into a wooded area, ignoring commands to stop, the re port states. Authorities were unable to locate the suspect after an extensive search. The report states that ofcers then spoke with a passenger in the car, who identied the driver as Carter. The passenger said she pleaded with the suspect to pull over multiple times and feared for her life, the report states. According to the report, the passenger said the sus pect repeatedly stated I cant go back to jail. During a search of the vehicle, authorities found a clear plastic zippered bag under the drivers seat containing 52.1 grams of suspected cocaine, the report states, adding that an opened safe in the back seat contained a clear plastic bag with 3.6 grams of suspected methamphet amine, eight white oval pills with 377 on them, which was identied to be Tramadol. A scale used for weighing narcotics was also found in the safe. Both the suspected cocaine and methamphet amine eld tested posi tive, the report states. Carter was charged with assault on a LEO, resist ofcer ee elude, cocaine trafc 28 grams less than 150 KG, drugs deliver/ distribute methamphet amine, drugs possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, kidnap/false imprison ment adult, driving while licensed suspended, resist ofcer without violence and drug equipment pos session.

Anita Williams also suggested putting rum ble strips on the road or grooves in the road near the U.S. 129 stop to help trafc begin to slow, while Caldwell suggested a digital speed sign to alert drivers of how fast they are traveling. Davis agreed that it prob ably should have been taken into consideration. I wish that would have been taken care of or looked at, Davis said. It should have been looked at. I would hope the council would make a commitment to look at these and see what needs to be done with those items. I regret that we didnt see that at the beginning. It caught all of us by sur prise. expected around 9:30 p.m. The Freedom Festival in Live Oak wont begin until 5 p.m., but will also feature local entertainment as well as bounce houses, games and food and craft booths. Live Oak Police Chief Buddy Williams, the events organizer, said Branfords Sadie Miller is one of the acts lined up to play a 30-minute set at the Freedom Festival, which will run up until the re works show also around 9:30 p.m. Williams said anybody interested in a booth should contact the LOPD for an application. Countryman retiring from music lessons LIVE OAK Starting in 1998, Anita Country man was a xture at the Music Center in Live Oak. For 20 years up until May 19, Countryman taught music lessons to hundreds of students, teaching as many as 60 students at one time. She also spent 25 years participating in the Na tional Federation Music Club and her students were known as the Note Finders Club. She also was in the National Piano Foundation for seven years where several students went on to get college de grees in music. Countryman, who was born in Indiana, took piano lessons at Lydick (Indiana) Elementary School from 1950-51 before moving to Clearwater where she began piano lessons at the Wesleyan Methodist Church in 1954. She re ceived private lessons from 1955-60, and also later took violin lessons. While attending junior college in St. Petersburg and studying piano, violin and voice, a college pro fessor told her she should start teaching piano on her own. That began a 58-year teaching career during which she has taught and played piano, violin, accor dion, viola, cello, ukulele, drums, sopranino recorder, alto recorder, organ, key board, auto harp, bass gui tar, vibraharp, bells, acous tic guitar, vibraphone, xy lophone, harmonica, harp, pipe organ and chimes. Following her last re cital at the Music Center on May 19, a surprise re tirement party was held at the Womans Club, host ed by her family.
