According to the Suwannee County Sheriffs Ofce, an ongoing SCSO Drug Unit in vestigation led to the serving of a search warrant Tuesday morning on Duval Street in Live Oak. During the search, 27-yearold Ashton Keith Artman was found to be in possession of a synthetic cannabi noid lab, according to the SCSO. In addition to the lab, ofcers found 2,975 grams of synthetic cannabinoids (spice), 1,012 grams of synthetic narcotics (n-ethylpentlone, or bath salts), 64 grams of cannabis as well as drug paraphernalia, SCSO said. The suspect also was found to have four loaded rearms near the manufacturing process and drugs, according to the SCSO. Artman was charged with trafcking in phenethylamines, trafcking in synthetic canna Drug bust shuts down Live Oak spice lab rffrrn trfbnrfnnrn n brn nbtfnnrnn r binoids, possession of marijuana more than 20 grams, possession of a rearm during commission of a felony and possession of paraphernalia.

More charges could be pending the results of the testing. jamie.wachter@ganews.com LIVE OAK The Suwan nee County Board of County Commissioners voted Tuesday to keep the countys millage rate at 9 mills. The rate can not be raised from that proposed rate, al though it could be lowered during the budgeting process. The countys millage rate has been at 9 mills the past ve years. Clerk of Court Barry Baker told the board Tuesday that the countys current rollback rate, or the tax rate that will provide the same amount of tax reve nue as the previous years rate, is 8.3298 mills. According to Baker, the cur rent gross taxable value in the county is $1,847,846,743. So each mill generates approxi mately $1,847,847. A year ago, the rollback rate when the board set the not to exceed rate was 9.0691. Although, that rate actually dropped to 8.954 after a few recalculations. rfrn f nrfr brffrr nrr jamie.wachter@ganews.com LIVE OAK Not even a few late afternoon and early evening rain showers could dampen the Freedom Festival on Wednesday.

Three-year term begin ning Aug. 2018 through Aug. 2021 Commissioners discuss state septic system regulations jamie.wachter@ganews.com LIVE OAK New state regula tions could cause Suwannee County property owners to spend three to four times as much on septic sys tems. Greg Bailey explained the fallout of the new state regulations on the installation of septic tanks to the Suwannee County Board of County Commissioners at Tuesdays meet ing. The new regulations, which are part of the Florida Springs and Aquifer Protection Act, regulate new construction on parcels of land less than one acre. On those properties, Bailey ex plained, regular septic tanks will no longer be allowed to be installed. Instead, property owners within the Priority Focus Area in Suwannee County which Bailey said covers around 80 percent of the county have three options: connect to a local municipal sewer, if they live in a septic-sewer conversion area (which there are none currently, Bailey said), they can put in a standard sys tem until connected to the sewer, or most likely they have to install a nitric-reducing system. Bailey, with North Florida Profes sional Services, Inc., said there are currently two options with a potential third option coming soon for those owners. All three will cause a rather large price increase on property owners. According to Bailey, a standard system costs around $3,000 to install and there are no recurring annual costs to that system. The rst option would be to install a nitrogen reducing with aerobic treatment unit that reduces the nitro gen 65 percent total with the use of a drain eld. That option, though, costs around $8,000 to install and would also have recurring maintenance costs annually along with addition electricity to run a blower on the system. The other option currently avail able, usually used for commercial purposes, is a performance-based treatment. Bailey said it costs an estimated $10-15,000 and would also have the maintenance costs and electricity increase as well as additional monitoring costs for sam pling. I dont foresee that being an op tion for most people, Bailey said. The potential third option, which is currently being experimented with, would call for a lter blanket (of nitrication soil and sand and sawdust) to be placed below the drain eld. Bailey said that option, which could be available later this summer, is estimated to cost at least $10,000 to install but would not re quire extra permitting. As far as treatment, its very effective, he said of the tests on the system which have been under way for the past 30 months. But theres questions as far as how long they will last without having to be replaced. Chairman Ricky Gamble said it may be wise for the county commis sioners to put the topic on its list of legislative priorities to discuss. Kerry Waldron, the administrator for the Department of Health-Su wannee County, agreed, adding Sen. Rob Bradley, whose district includes Suwannee County, was the author of the bill that brought on the new regulations. While Gamble was worried the next step for legislators would be to expand the regulations to property on more and more acreage, Bailey said he would expect expansion to be used on existing systems that need repairs. That will cause residents to try to repair systems themselves, Gamble replied. You tell someone they have to put in a $10-15,000 system, youre going to get some 55-gallon drums and some rocks, Gamble said. Im not saying I would do it, but you just know thats whats going to happen. While the regulations were set to take effect July 1, Waldron said the Florida Builders Association has requested an extension with concerns about the new system. So as that process plays out, Waldron said his department will continue to take applications and inspect during the permitting pro cess based on the current rules. Project tour County administrator Randy Harris also set up a tour for the commissioners for various projects around the county during Tuesdays meeting. The tour, which is open to the public, is set for Tuesday at 8 a.m. It will depart from the Suwannee Valley Transit Authority, located at 1907 Voyles St. Harris said the tour would include road projects and the rail spur at the catalyst site. Rodeo arena roof The board authorized the county to advertise for bids on preparing the rodeo arena roof at the Suwan nee County Coliseum. That was a welcomed decision to resident Bruce Tillman. Prior to the vote, Tillman urged the board to see the project through, adding it was long over due and has prevented some events from being held at the Coliseum. Tillman said the current condi tion of the arena affects the health of both the riders and animals in the rodeo as both ends of the arena currently get wet. That one thing is what keeps them from having an event here is because they cant put their $25,000 or $40,000 horse at risk for injury, Tillman told the board about conversations hes had in the past with the leadership of the Florida High School Rodeo Asso ciation and the Florida Junior High School Rodeo Association. I just really want to encourage you guys to press forward with that project. Tillman said the possibility of those future events could provide a nice boost to the economy through hotels and restaurants from the participants and their families.

and a Vienna sau sage. We had plenty of provisions, he added, but no one had time to cook or to eat; we were too busy. Young Hamilton was for months in the Pacic. He proudly wears on his Navy uniform three bars one for having enlisted prior to Pearl Harbor; another for participation in the American zone defense; the third for participation in the Asiatic zone defense. Also indicated are the seven battles in which he took part. Later in 1943, J. D. Hamilton, Jr. is listed among Suwannee Countians who were serving their country during World War II and would have a large memo rial wall constructed on the Courthouse Square in their honor. There is a John D. Hamilton, Jr. (Dec. 22, 1923 June 5, 2009) buried in Jack sonville Memory Gardens. His obituary lists him as having been a resident of Jacksonville since 1946.

Just more than 75 years ago, Suwannee Countians were in the middle of World War II, supporting the troops in various ways. By March 1943, nearly 800 Suwannee Countians were in the Armed Forces, with many others helping in auxiliary capacities. The Live Oak Kiwanis Club invited veteran J. D. Hamilton, Jr., to speak at one of their lun cheons. The following is from the March 19, 1943, Suwannee Democrat, and I felt it only right to pass his interesting story along. After reading his story, Im honest ly not sure Id want to serve with him, as he would be considered a Jonah in naval parlance I have never seen a live Jap except in airplanes as they ew over strang our ship. All the Japs Ive seen were dead. So spoke J. D. Hamilton, Jr., aviation machinists mate, second class, USN, 19-year-old veteran of seven battles in the Pacic area, as he brought round after round of applause from Live Oak Kiwan ians and their guests during the luncheon meeting of the club last Friday in the Vic tory room. Young Hamilton was in the Battle of Midway and a half dozen other major en counters of the Pacic. He saw the York town go down, saw the Wasp plunge to the Pacics bottom, and was among those who abandoned the USS Hornet, crack aircraft carrier, shortly before it went down (all three were aircraft carriers, sunk in June, September and October 1942, re spectively, EM). From the Hornet, he told Kiwanians, he was transferred to a destroyer, and from the destroyer a troop transport. The destroyer was sunk shortly after he left her, and two days after leaving the transport it was sunk. Although carefully guarding his re marks, he did tell of some of his expe riences. He emphasized the need for se crecy Many of the things we see and know we dont even talk about with our shipmates, he pointed out, adding that secrecy and surprise could be given the full credit for the success at Midway. While he was still aboard the Hor net, the electric generating equipment was struck with a torpedo, re ght ing equipment was damaged and men aboard the aircraft carrier attempted to put out the ames of two Jap planes burning on the deck with water obtained from over the side of the carrier in buckets. He told of going an entire day in the heat of battle with two slices of bread Remembering a local WW2 vet during the Dolittle Raid and the Battle of Midway. Im going to take a gander and assume this is the same J. D. Hamilton who spoke to Live Oak Kiwanians in 1943 and who then presumably moved to Jacksonville after World War II to con tinue his military career. As we remember our Independence Day, let us also remember all those who served their country for the cause of free dom.

Suwannee County has a growing agricultural community, one of the few in the state, so it is vital that opportunities are provided to help growers. It is unique to live in an area of progressive individuals continually seeking new informa tion to increase the sustainability and profitability of their opera tions, whether that be the produc er starting out with a handful of small ruminants or the lifetime farmer/rancher with 2,000 acres of hay fields. The role of your local Extension office is to provide educational programs and support for various topics, ranging from sewing and canning to com mercial crops and livestock. As a member of the commu nity, you have ability to utilize this resource at any point. As an Agriculture and Natural Re source Agent, I answer questions about herbicide use, plant identification, water quality, livestock management, hay production and various other things. I also teach and coordinate edu cational programs on topics driven by the needs of the community. Do you have a question or input on a class related to agriculture or nat ural resources that you would like to see? Email me at janeeecant@ ufl.edu. With that in mind, I would like to share some information about an upcoming event, the 2018 Live stock and Forage Field Day. This event focuses on increasing the productivity of the hay producer, with a vendor trade show, equip ment demo, guest speakers and break-out sessions. There are also components that deal directly with the livestock aspect of the indus try. For more information, please email me.

If he does as badly in his July 16 meeting with Vladimir Putin in Finland as he did with Kim Jong Un in Singa pore, the consequences could be catastrophic. An exceptionally knowledgeable student of North Korea, the American Enterprise Institutes Nicholas Eberstadt, writing in National Review (Kim Wins in Singapore), says the one-day meeting was for the United States a World Series of unforced errors. The result was that North Korea walked away with a joint communique that read almost as if it had been drafted by the DPRK (Democratic Peoples Republic of Ko rea) ministry of foreign affairs. Kim, says Eberstadt, is the boss of a state-run crime cartel that a U.N. Commission of Inquiry wants to charge with crimes against humanity. Au contrai re, said Americas president, who slathered Kim with praise: Kim, with whom Trump has a very special bond is a talented man who loves his country, which reciprocates with a great fervor. Trump called Kim a very worthy negotiator, which might actually have made sense if Kim had been forced to negotiate for the concessions that Trump dispensed gratis. North Korea, Eberstadt says, is committed to what he calls its racial socialism, which motivates Kims central and sacred mission, which is nonnegotia ble the unconditional reunication of the Korean Peninsula. This presupposes extermination of the South Korean state, which requires the policy Kim announced last New Years Day to mass-produce nuclear warheads and missiles and speed up their de ployment. Eberstadt: Such a program would not be necessary for regime legitimation, or for international military extortion, or even to ensure the regimes survival: All of those ob jectives could surely be satised with a limited nuclear force. Why then threaten the U.S. homeland? Amer ica is the guarantor of South Koreas security, and if Washington can be made to blink at a time and place of Pyongyangs choosing, the U.S.-South Korea alli ance will end, as will the U.S. security presence there. Hence the delusional nature of Trumps belief: One one-day meeting sufced to cause the North Korean regime to abandon its raison detre In addition to the legitimation supplied to Pyong yang by the pageantry of the summit for which Trump obviously hungered, the ofcial record of the Singa pore deliberations reveals no U.S. interest in Pyong yangs atrocious human rights practices (unparalleled in the modern world, Eberstadt says) that raise Does Trumps awful summit with Kim foretell a catastrophic meeting with Putin?

Ill be 88 next month. Contrary to last weeks Rant and Rave rebuttal refer ence to District 4 county commissioner. I didnt say the immediate commissioner was a good commissioner. I said none of the previous commissioners in District 4 addressed a problem I and others had in our area where we lived. Our immediate commissioner had the problem xed in six months after he took ofce. Your has-been commissioner just happened to be in ofce when the Fire Rescue facility was built in Wellborn. I do know whats going on in the county. Ive probably lived here three times longer than you have. I still say we dont need no has-been commissioners in District 4. To Vladimir Putin, the new dictator of the United States. To his voters, remember what goes around comes around. Good job to all the county commissioners! Many manuals that come with new units say to ush the heater monthly with at least 1-gallon passing through the drain valve. Additional water should be used for systems having high sediments.

FRIDAY, JULY 6, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 6A doubts about the fervor with which North Koreans appreciate Dear Leaders love for them. In return for Trumps promise to halt military-readiness opera tions, Kim gave nothing no inventory of his nu clear weapons and ballistic missiles, nothing beyond North Koreas decades-old commitment to denucle arization of the Korean Peninsula an opaque goal that means only that Pyongyang is not clearly committed to anything beyond a pre-summit promise to decommission a no-longer-useable nuclear test site. The New Years Day vow has not been dis avowed. Singapore was, Eber stadt believes, probably the greatest diplomatic coup for North Korea since 1950, and a milestone on the DPRKs road to estab lishing itself as a perma nent nuclear power. And the sanctions that were the Trump administrations strategy of maximum pressure will be difcult to maintain now that a defanged Eberstadts description Trump has declared the nuclear threat banished. The most dangerous moment of the Trump pres idency will arrive when he who is constantly gnawed by insecurities and the fear of not seeming what he is not (strong), realizes how weak and childish he seems to all who cast a cool eye on Singapores aftermath. The danger is of Continued From Page 5A Trumps him lashing out in wound ed vanity.

It was loaded, Wil liams said of the atten dance. And when youre riding on the outskirts of it, thats when it was real ly packed. But when you bring that many people together and have no inci dents. The local talent was awesome on the stage. I just think it was a great way to celebrate Indepen dence Day. The local talent, which included Sadie Miller from Branford, Hallie Davis from Jasper, The Kellen Vincent Band and Scotty Williams & The Drifters, had children and adults alike dancing in front of the stage in Festi val Park. And there was a long line of people waiting to get their face painted by Nada Meeks. Overall, even outside of the rain, I felt like we had a very good festi val, Williams added. I thought the reworks were amazing. To me, its a shining star in what the city of Live Oak and the Live Oak CRA do for our com munity. I truly think that every body really enjoyed them selves. Continued From Page 1A Festival That was the rst time I was on the board, it was actually a rollback, Chairman Ricky Gamble said. So this year its a lot better than it was previous years. Even though the board set the tentative rate at 9 mills, the commissioners stressed their belief that the nal rate will drop. I think we can beat it, Larry Sessions said. Baker also told the com missioners that he would provide possible budget hearing dates at the July 17 meeting.

The inaugural BHS Interact Club Hot Dog Eating Contest was a blast, said Heather McInnis, with the Rotary Club. In the Duck Race that fol lowed, 1,290 ducks swam down the Suwannee River in the Rota ry Clubs scholarship fundraiser. Among the winners of the Duck Race were Norman Reams (rst), Peggy Rickett (second), Diana Worden (third), Joseph Land (fourth), Erin Tanner (fth) and Shirley Wimberly (sixth). From there, the festivities headed to Hatch Park. Peggy Terry, with the Branford Fourth of July committee, said the event went well outside of the rain showers that came late in the afternoon. It went good except the rain kind of stopped us right in the middle of everything, Terry said. After it rained, it kind of cooled things down, thank goodness. Thats probably what the Man upstairs was trying to get at, Its too hot. Lets cool you down. The rain, though, cleared in time for the parade and Bed rock Derby. Which provided the lead up to the reworks, which Terry said had an extra show late Wednesday night. We had a good grand nale, Terry said. When they were cleaning up, there were some reworks that had been covered up, so they had a few extras afterwards that were missed in the show. They cant leave them for next year. When they are there, they are ready to blow. Terry said its hard to tell how many people attended the River Reunion because they come and go from Hatch Park, but with a full parking lot, she would guess at least 1,000 came to enjoy the fes tivities. There was a lot of people there, she said. Continued From Page 1A River rfnt bt ft fr t rr t t t t

Both teams begin tournament play today at 1 p.m. Action will continue through the weekend until Mondays Champion ship game. rrrrb States game plan sports betting odds fttff CNHI News Service On May 14, the United States Su preme Court invalidated the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, a federal law that prohibited states, aside from a few exemptions like Nevada, from allowing sports betting operations. In a victory for states rights, the court ruled the law unconstitutionally inter fered with an individual states ability to implement its own legislation on the issue. So now what? As someone who studies sports wager ing and gambling law, Ive been follow ing the case closely. While the decision marks an end to years of legal action to challenge the federal law, it also now creates a host of issues for states that are considering sports betting legislation and regulation. Foremost, its now on states to decide whether to legalize sports betting. Many, like Pennsylvania and New York, have preemptively introduced or passed legis lation to do just that. But for those that have already legal ized sports betting or end up doing so in the coming months, theres a lot of work to be done and decisions to be made. The states that do legalize sports bet ting will have to decide whether it will be operated by the state, like lotteries, or if private enterprises will be allowed to offer sports bets. If private business es are permitted, states must consider whether sports betting will be limited to certain types, such as casinos and race tracks, or if online operators and smaller retailers will also be able to participate. Then there are the types of wagers that will be permitted and prohibited. Does the legalization of sports betting allow for wagering on events that are related to professional sports, such as the NBA draft? Do esports count as a sport for wagering purposes? Will betting on events beyond sports be legalized, too? For example, in Nevada, you cant bet on the outcome of elections, but you can bet on approved esports events and the NBA draft. States will also need to determine whether live betting also known as in-running, live-game or in-game betting will be offered. This type of wager, which has become increasingly popular in Nevada, allows you to bet on certain aspects of the game as it unfolds. For ex ample, at halftime of a game, you could bet on the outcome regardless of what happened in the rst half. Theres also the issue of how bettors will establish betting accounts and place their bets. Will they be able to do so through an app on their phones? Or must it be done in person at a licensed loca tion? Some elected ofcials think the fed eral government could play a role by building a regulatory template for states to follow. Before the decision, Congress man Frank Pallone of New Jersey had already introduced legislation to create one. However, Congress might not have the appetite to tackle the issue, given other priorities and the upcoming mid term elections. Moreover, Nevadas system could easily serve as a starting point for states from which to build. Since 1949, the state has been auditing sports books, resolving patron disputes, approving technology for use in sports books, and approving wagering options. So far, little has been said about the benet the federal government will receive from an expansion of sports wagering throughout the United States. The current tax code imposes a 0.25 percent federal tax on the total amount wagered on sports. However, the sports leagues also want a cut of the bets and have pushed for what they call an integrity fee. But its really just a share of all wagers made. This could prove detrimental to sports book operators, since sports betting, by its nature, is a relatively low-margin business after all, they do have to pay out on winning wagers. If states arent careful, integrity fees, burdensome taxes, license fees and reg ulatory costs might push out suitable, experienced operators and force pa trons to remain in the illegal market. These are just a snapshot of issues that states will have to grapple with, and a careful, cautious and informed approach must be undertaken. But in the long term, it will serve states and bettors well: A legal, regulated market is much better than the illegal, unac countable system thats been operating for year.
