Commissioners tour road projects jamie.wachter@ganews.com LIVE OAK Four of the Suwannee County commis sioners took part in a tour Tuesday morning of various road projects around the county. County administrator Randy Harris set up the tour, which covered all ve districts in the county and included stops at the Interstate 75 and County Road 136 interchange near White Springs to discuss the water and waste water treatment plants that are also part of the improvements be ing made in the county. The four commissioners Don Hale (District 1), Clyde Fleming (District 2), Ricky Gamble (District 3) and Larry Sessions (District 4) were part of the 12-person tour contingent that also included county personnel and resi dents. One of the few destinations not to include road projects were the infrastructure improvements planned for the I-75/ CR 136 interchange. A water plant is planned for the western side of the interstate on 23 acres of property near County Road 137. The waste water plant, meanwhile, is planned to go in just east of the State Farmers Market on the eastern side of the interstate. That property is 16 acres. The last stop on the tour was at the catalyst site on the western side of Live Oak where Harris discussed the rail spur that will be constructed to aid in the development of the site. A nearby rail crossing has already been closed with a new one to be constructed as work on that project is done. Among the road projects discussed during the three-hour tour were repaving/widening of County Road 49 to be funded by the Florida Department of Transportation that will stretch from U.S. Highway 27 to U.S. 90. Harris said the project will be done in various phases, adding that the northern portion of CR 49 in that stretch includes some base failure. Harris later pointed out base failure on County Road 10A east of Wellborn and 29th Road southeast of Well born. During the tour, Harris also advised that the bridge on 180th Street in McAlpin will need to be replaced soon after it was only repaired a few years ago during work on that road. The bridge on County Road 250 in Dowling Park is also being replaced, with work scheduled to begin there later this year. Harris and Gamble, the county chairman, also discussed part of the repaving work on County Road 252/152nd Street, east of State Road 51, that was performed by An derson Columbia last year. After the work was concluded with adding the apron on the sides of the road, grass began growing through the pavement this spring, leading to the contractor having to redo a portion of the project.

Doctors have held an important position in the history of Suwannee County. The frontier life was hard on the early Suwan nee Countians, and doctors were often the difference between life and death. Of course, a casual reading of historical rem edies and treatments reveals that doctors were equally as likely to kill their patients as they were to save them. However, besides attending to the med ical needs of citizens, doctors often found themselves thrust into positions of busi ness or governmental prominence due to their educational background. The citizen discussed today was one such man. Part of this information comes from the book, Biographical Souvenir of the States of Georgia and Florida: Containing Bi ographical Sketches of the Representative Public, and many Early Settled Families in These States, published 1889. W. F. Bynum, M. D. is of French stock, born in Virginia (February 29, in the leap year of 1832, EM), reared in Georgia. His great-grandfather Bynum was a French soldier, volunteer in the American Revolution, who accompanied Gen. Lafayette to this country. At the close of the struggle he settled in Virgin ia and became a planter. Dr. Bynums parents and grandparents are Virginians. His father settled in Georgia when a young man and there passed the most of his life as a planter. Dr. Bynums mother was a Miss Wilkins. Her father settled in Georgia in an early day, and was a large and successful planter of that State. Dr. By num passed his youth like most boys of that time on his fathers farm. He was edu cated at Mount Zion and Midway, Ga., graduating from the institute in the latter place in 1849. He read medicine under Drs. Henry and Sullivan, of Columbia County, Ga., attended Jefferson Medical College at Philadelphia and graduated in 1853. He practiced awhile at Albany, Ga., but on account of rheumatic trouble moved to Florida in 1857 and located in Suwannee County, where he followed his profession for twenty years. He served in the late war as a member of Company E, Fourth Florida regiment; was in the Western army and was in most of the Tennessee, Kentucky and Georgia cam paigns down to the surrender of Johnston (General Joseph Johnston, EM). At the close of the war he returned to Suwannee County, where he resumed the practice of medicine and followed it up to 1876. At this date he abandoned the profession and engaged in the drug business, which he has followed since. He has been in public life somewhat, although he is not an aspi rant for public positions. Since living in Florida he has been clerk of the Suwan nee County court for four years and chief clerk of the house of representatives of the Florida legislature for twenty-ve ses sions (1864-1903, with few exceptions; before 1864 he also served as assistant clerk to the House, EM). He has been a zealous Mason since he was twenty-one years of age, and has lled a number of positions of distinction in the order, being now deputy grand master of the Grand Lodge of the State. He has been a member of the Baptist Church since early youth; is a man of strong moral con victions and pronounced views on most questions of public concern. Dr. Bynum appears to have spent some time in Lafayette County prior to the Civil War, as he is listed as having a ferry along the Suwannee River in that county in 1858. He was also the postmaster of New Troy, the county seat of Lafayette County, from August 25, 1860 until January 5, 1861, when the post ofce was discontinued and the name changed to McIntosh (also known as McIntosh Courthouse). Bynum apparently contin ued serving as the postmaster for McIn tosh for a short time before the Civil War broke out and he enlisted in Confederate service. After the Civil War, Dr. Bynum served as a Suwannee County Commissioner in 1875 and was listed as a member of the National Grange of the Order of Patrons of Husbandry (usually shorted to The Grange), an agricultural and societal organization. In 1885, he is listed in a local newspaper (a predecessor to the Su wannee Democrat) as having a new drug store on Ohio Avenue. Bynum was also a delegate to the American Pharmaceutical Association in 1887 and part of the Exec utive Committee of the Florida Pharma ceutical Association in 1888, among other years. Shortly after the 1889 article was published, Bynum became Grand Master of the Masonic Lodges in Florida, the rst of four Barrett Lodge (Live Oak) men to do so. Dr. Bynum passed away on May 9, 1904 and was buried at the Antioch Bap tist Church Cemetery north of Live Oak. An article in a period newspaper noted that he was a skillful physician, a lifelong and consistent Christian, a loving husband, a kind father and a good and true citizen. More history next week.

The weed invading our yards is also known as Chamberbitter and it causes a lot of people to gripe, thus the other common name Gripeweed. The bo tanical name is Phyllanthus urinaria for those of you who want to look it up. It is a warm season annual, broadleaf weed which means it completes its life cycle in one season and then dies off when the cold weather returns. Chamberbitter grows up right and it resembles a mi mosa tree seedling which is another invasive weed that should be eradicated. The seedlings have a ling tap root, but are easily pulled from the ground. The dis tinguishing characteristic is the warty like yellow ish-green seedpod that hangs on the underside of the leaf. What is amazing is there are six seeds in each little seed pod. One 1012 inch plant can produce 700-900 seeds. The next time you pull one up, count the number of seedpods and multiple that number by six, you will then under stand why they can spread over an area quickly. Management of these weeds is through the use of mechanical, cultural and chemical methods. Keep in mind, for all of these meth ods, the smaller the weed, the easier it is to deal with them. Mechanical control involves the physical re moval of the weed from the soil either by hand or with hoe. Cultural methods include grow ing a healthy lawn and mowing at the proper height. Avoid scalp ing the lawn with the mow er or string trimmer. In landscape beds, add a 3-4 inch layer of fresh mulch to keep the weed seeds from germinating. Cham berbitter seeds need light to germinate so this can be an effective way to reduce the number of weeds. Chemical options include the use of pre-emergent and post-emergent her bicides. Pre-emergence herbicides prevent seeds from developing into plants. Timing of herbicide application is critical as the herbicide MUST be applied prior to seeds germinating! Another thing to keep in mind if you use pre-emer gence herbicides is they create a chemical barrier on the top of the soil so if you pull weeds out after applying the herbicide, you will break that chemical barrier and seeds can ger minate. Lastly, you will not be able to put down grass seed once you have applied the pre-emergent herbicide. Depending on tempera tures, the active ingredients isoxaben or atrazine can be used on Centipede and St. Augustine lawns. You cannot use these products on Bahia lawns. Avoid using atrazine when the temperatures soar into the high eighties and nineties. Post emergent herbicides are those poisons that kill the weeds once they have germinated. Try to get rid of the weeds BEFORE they set seed. Three-way herbicides that contain 2,4-D, mecoprop (MCPP) and dicamba can be used on Centipede and St. Au gustine lawns at a reduced rate after the grasses have greened up in the spring. Atrazine can also be used as a post emergent her bicide. It is critical that you follow the directions on the herbicide label as it will warn you on what precautions to take with different pesticides. The label is the law, so always follow it. For a helpful publication with more in-depth information and herbicides to use, go to https://hgic.clemson.edu/ factsheet/chamberbitter/. Plants develop a variety of methods to continue their species; Chamberbitter is well adapted to thrive in North Florida. It will take several years to combat this prolic weed. Good luck and have patience. Carolyn Saft is the Environmental Horticulture Agent II at the UF/ IFAS Suwannee County Extension Ofce. UF/IFAS is an equal opportunity institution. Oh no, Gripeweed is invading my yard Suwannee Valley implementing water-saving science LIVE OAK Water is being saved by the millions of gallons across the Su wannee Valley, thanks to a partnership program with the Suwannee River Water Management District and area farmers. The program helps farmers to imple ment water-saving devices known as soil moisture sen sors throughout their farm ing operations by sharing the cost of the technology, known as cost share. Part of managing our water resources is working with our water users to identify innovative practic es to efciently use water without negatively impact ing their businesses Hugh Thomas, executive director for the SRWMD, said in a release. This project is a win-win, all the way around. Most farmers are able to reduce their amount of groundwater pumping by using these water manage ment tools. Across the SRWMD, the sensors (also known as probes) are saving an aver age of 6,000,000 gallons of water per day. That equates to a savings of 151,000 gal lons per acre (or the water in eight swimming pools) over a growing season for crops like watermelons, peanuts, and corn. The sensors save water by helping farmers to adjust their irrigation schedules based on real time data provided by the probes. The devices send out very small electrical pulses and calculate the time it takes for the pulses to return to the probe to determine the amount of water in the soil. The pulses are emitted at various depths which al lows farmers to know how the water is being taken up by a crops root zone. If water ows past the root zone and is not utilized, the farmer can tailor his or her irrigation schedule to use less water and take full ad vantage of rainfall. Water resource stake holders across the region are highly supportive of the use of soil moisture probes and the districts program. University of Florida re searchers are studying the effectiveness of the sensors on a variety of crops and crop rotations common to farmers throughout the Su wannee Valley. Soil moisture sensors are one of the best tools we have to aid our farmers and provide quick, easy management information. Not only do they provide soil moisture information but they can also show if a plant is stressed or possibly diseased, said Charles Barrett, water resources specialized agent with the University of Florida, North Florida Research and Ed ucation Center, Suwannee Valley. Its like having your own personal record keeper on call, 24-7. Farmers in the Suwannee Valley are leading the way across Florida in this spe cic type of water conser vation practice and the technology is expected to continue to grow. Since January 2017, the SRWMD has helped fund 228 sensors throughout the 15-county district area, cov ering 14,500 irrigated acres. The program allows farm ers to purchase the sensors at a signicantly reduced cost to get the technology into their hands faster. Prior to 2017, the Florida Depart ment of Agricultural and Consumer Services pro vided grant funding for the sensors from 2015-2017. We expect to see a steady climb in the use of soil moisture sensors in the district over the next several years as the technol ogy continues to improve, usability increases and cost continues to decrease, said Justin Garland, engineer with the district. In addition to water savings, the sensors also protect water quality by reducing the leaching of fertilizer through the crops root zone. When farmers know how much water is available in the crops root zone they can plan to have more water storage capacity in their elds to better pro tect against a leaching rain event. By managing the amount of water applied to crops, farmers can hold nu trients in the root zone lon ger which allows the plant a longer time to utilize the nutrients. This reduces the amount of fertilizer leached and supports the farmers bottom line, said Garland. In areas of the district where targeted water qual ity efforts are ongoing, known as Basin Manage ment Action Plan areas, the SRWMD will fund 90 percent of the cost of each probe. Elsewhere, the SR WMD funds 75 percent of the cost. The probes cost an average of $2,000 each and include a yearly service fee to support the technology. The SRWMD helps to off set the annual service cost as well. Currently, there is no better technology on the market for managing irri gation and water conserva tion than the soil moisture sensors, said Thomas. Our goal is get at least one sensor on every farm in the Suwannee Valley within the next few years; and with our cost-share program there is no reason for a farmer with irrigation not to participate. Older versions of irri gation management tools used tensiometers which were not very dependable in the sandy soil across the Suwannee Valley. The newer probes were intro duced about four years ago and are signicantly more reliable. Registration for the soil moisture sensor program at the district is on-going. If you would like more in formation, contact the SR WMDs Ag Team at 386362-1001 or visit www. mysuwanneeriver.com. The mission of the SR WMD is to protect and manage water resources us ing science-based solutions to support natural systems and the needs of the pub lic. The district holds true to the belief of water for nature, water for people. Headquartered in Live Oak, the SRWMD serves 15 surrounding north-central Florida counties.

Individuals experiencing homelessness who do not have a cell phone lose out on housing opportunities, have trouble connecting with case managers, and are cut off from family and friends who could provide support. In some cases the ability to call for help is the difference between life and death. Consider providing a lifeline to homeless individuals in our community by donating a prepaid phone or prepaid phone card. The United Way of Suwannee Valleys PATH home less outreach program always welcomes donations of phones, sleeping bags, T-shirts, socks and furniture. Every homeless client who becomes housed is in need of basic furniture to get started with their new life. The PATH outreach case manage ment team is grateful for every donation received as are the clients. The United Way PATH outreach program is grant funded and provides for homeless outreach in Columbia, Suwanee, Hamilton and Lafayette counties to identify and assist the most vulnerable individuals experiencing homelessness. The goal is to provide initial survival items such as food and water while providing referrals to local housing programs. When clients become housed, the program seeks to provide donated household items including furniture.

United Way homeless outreach program seeking donations Suwannee PAWS receives Petco Foundation grant LIVE OAK Suwannee PAWS Inc. announced Thursday it has been awarded a $3,500 grant from the Pet co Foundation to support its lifesav ing spay/neuter surgical operations. Suwannee PAWS Inc. is a non-prot organization serving the Suwannee Valley region of Florida and provides much-needed surger ies to public, stray and rescue pets, including shelter animals before and after adoption. Since 2014, PAWS has provided almost 6,000 surgeries to pets in need and has donated more than $20,000 in services to shelter and rescue animals locally. The Petco Foundation investment will help to purchase additional spay/ neuter packs, which ultimately in creases surgical capacity, allowing Suwannee PAWS to help more pets in need and to help with the serious pet overpopulation problem in the area. After 5,000 surgeries our instru ments began to wear out and we were limited by the small number of functional surgical packs we had, said Tracie Daniels, the Su wannee PAWS staff veterinarian. High-quality surgical instruments are very expensive and we could not previously afford them. These packs will help add capacity and will replace some very worn-out instruments. We are grateful to the Petco Foundation for investing in us as we continue to grow.

The results cannot be assumed to represent the opinions of Internet users in general, nor the public as a whole. www.suwannee democrat.com ONLINE OPPORTUNITY Keep it at 9 mills 20.4% Lower it to the rollback rate 79.6% Poll Results (07-06-13) Question of the Week What should Suwannee County do with its millage rate? 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. WASHINGTON The president, who might not be fully acquainted with the perti nent Supreme Court case law, says the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel was unconstitutional. The presi dents opinion, because it is his, is prima facie evidence for the opposite conclusion. It is, how ever, not sufcient evidence. Consider the debate between two serious people who have immersed themselves in the history of the Appointments Clause, which says: (The president) shall nomi nate, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, judges of the Supreme Court, and all other ofcers of the United States, whose appoint ments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by law: but the Congress may by law vest the appointment of such inferior ofcers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the courts of law, or in the heads of departments. The debate turns on the dis tinction the Supreme Court has drawn between inferior and principal ofcers. If Mueller is among the latter, his appoint ment was invalid because he was neither nominated by the president he was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein nor con rmed by the Senate. Steven G. Calabresi, professor at North western University Law School and co-founder of the Federalist Society, argues as follows: By long-standing practice, Congress and the executive branch give principal-ofcer status to all important and powerful ofcials, even those who have a boss who can re them. In 1976, the Supreme Court invalidated the law that created the Federal Election Commission to be composed of two members nominated by the president, two by the speaker of the House and two by the president pro tempo re of the Senate. The court held that all six must be nominated by the president as principal of cers. Mueller, says Calabresi, is much more important and powerful than an FEC member. Congress has stipulated that the 93 U.S. attorneys are prin cipal ofcers, and Mueller has, Calabresi says, acted and has behaved like, and is much more powerful than, any U.S. attorney. Compare, for example, Muellers job relative to that of the U.S. attorney for Wyo ming. Mueller has nationwide jurisdiction and powers (e.g., to indict foreign citizens and corporations without clearance from [the Justice Department]) that have had a major effect on U.S. foreign policy, powers that in effect and in practice are akin to those exercised by an assistant attorney general, a principal ofcer. Mueller has been without any real super vision by Rosenstein, who has treated Mueller as if he was independent. Furthermore, Calabresi says Mueller cannot be an inferior ofcer because Congress has not, by law vested in the attor ney general, the power to ap point special counsels to inves tigate wrongdoing by high of cials. The Appointments Clause creates a default rule that all U.S. ofcers are principal of cers and it takes an afrmative action a statute to em power the attorney general to appoint a special counsel as an inferior ofcer, which Congress has not passed. The 1978 law that vested in a special court the power to appoint independent counsels expired in 1999. Writing in vigorous rebuttal, George Conway, a New York lawyer (whose wife Kellyanne works for the president who hopes Calabresi is correct), ar gues that Calabresi incorrectly asserts that Mueller must be a principal ofcer because he does not have a supervising and directing boss. Conway says: Rosenstein has testied to Congress that he is exercising my oversight responsibilities concerning Mueller, with whom he has ongoing discussion, who consults with me about his investigation, and who has received my permission regarding the scope of the in vestigation. So Mueller, like an inferior ofcer, has a boss by whom he is directed and su pervised, and whose orders Mueller is faithfully follow ing. No presidential power has been diminished because Muel lers mission was dened by a regulation written within the supervising executive branch. And although U.S. attorneys are principal ofcers, vacancies in the 93 ofces can be lled for 120 days by the attorney general without Senate involve ment and then indenitely Is Trump correct that Muellers appointment was unconstitutional?

But thank you very much for printing the profile, it was interesting reading. Hello Suwannee Democrat, just refuting your has-been writer again. As I stated, he doesnt have a clue as proved by his state ment that the has-been commissioner was already in office when the fire station was built. Well, duh. How else would he have gotten the station built. He started on that campaign promise in his first week in office. Public record dude. Look it up. As I stated, no clue. Thank you Suwannee Democrat.

Continued From Page 6A Trump TOPIC: Immigration April 3, 2006 Floor Statement of Senator Barack Obama Immigration Reform Mr. President, I come to the floor today to enter the debate on comprehensive immigration reform. It is a debate that will touch on the basic questions of morality, the law, and what it means to be an Amer ican. I know that this debate evokes strong passions on all sides. The recent peaceful but passionate protests that we saw all across the country--500,000 in Los Angeles and 100,000 in my hometown of Chica go--are a testament to this fact, as are the concerns of millions of Americans about the security of our borders. But I believe we can work together to pass immi gration reform in a way that unites the people in this country, not in a way that divides us by playing on our worst instincts and fears. College destruction of black students Opinion by Dr. Walter Williams, Suwannee Democrat July 4, 2018 concludes, The question for black people is whether we can afford to have the best of our young sters demeaned, degraded and possibly destroyed to make white liberals feel better about themselves. Dr Williams equates best as candidates for higher education ( himself, for instance) -a com mon form of insidious social stratification not in the better interests of a representative republic. Dr. Williams, PhD, George Mason University reg ularly degrades and demeans liberals; today he spec ifies white liberals. They are, by George Mason University PhD Williams lights demeaning, degrad ing and destroying black youngsters. Something ought be done. But is it to be done about the demeaning of black youngsters or about feel-good white liberals; Dr. Williams, PhD, George Mason University does not educate us. Name calling and collective demonization, however, never lead to peaceful solutions. Nurturing the fiction of indi vidual behavior as an unapproachable manifestation of racial or ethnic variation also feeds no inclusive agenda, such as Liberty and Justice for All. Why do Suwannee Countys collection sites still have separate bins for mixed paper waste? Continued From Page 6A From Page One Rant & Rave cant get out, Rhoden said. Thats when I told them to kick the door in. Once MacFadden broke through the door, the ofcers found Sandy Chaires Jr. trapped under some furniture on the oor. MacFadden and Smith grabbed Chaires hands and pulled him from the burning building. The room was so smoked out, you couldnt see your hand in front of you, said MacFadden, who was driv ing down Ohio Avenue moments earlier when a car agged him down with ashing lights to alert the ofcers of the re. Initially when we kicked the door in all we could hear was his voice. Moments after the ofcers helped Chaires out of the house, the Live Oak Fire Department arrived and extinguished the re after responding to the LOPD of cers call to dispatch about the re. Assistant re chief Sid ney Hayes said the re was started in the kitchen with a pot on the stove. He said Chaires, who had worked the night before, was going to cook but fell asleep. According to Hayes, the re was contained to the kitchen area and the bathroom, which was next door. However, the entire residence sustained smoke damage. Chaires, however, sus tained only minor injuries and smoke inhalation. He was transported to Shands Live Oak Regional Medi cal Center but was released and is fully recovered. Smith said it was just a matter of the ofcers doing their job. As soon as we realized what was going on, we all just pretty much went into what we would call work mode, Smith said. Just try and make sure anybody that was inside was out, so they could presumably be safe or safer than the con ditions that they were in. Just thankful that no body got signicantly hurt. MacFadden agreed. It was that time, he said. We had to go in. Ultimately, thats what were here to do is protect and serve. Continued From Page 1A LOPD history tonight. Mrs. Reed, welcome and congratula tions. You went down into history tonight. Reed, the councilor for District 2, and Mark Stew art, the District 4 council or, were sworn in by Judge David Fina earlier in the meeting. Reed was elected to the council in May, while Stewart won a runoff elec tion in June to rejoin the council, which he served on from 2006-10. Also sworn in at Tues days meeting were City Clerk John Gill, who ran unopposed, and Mayor Frank Davis. Davis, who had served as the District 4 councilman, replaces Sonny Nobles, who retired after 16 years as mayor. President, Pro-Tem elected After the new ofcials were sworn in Tuesday, the council also elected its new President and Pro-Tem. Current President Bennie Thomas was re-elected as President with David Burch elected as Pro-Tem. Burch was also nom inated as President, but was voted against by a 3-2 vote. Thomas then was elected. Burch was the lone nom inee for Pro-Tem. I appreciate this council having that much con dence in me, Thomas said. I will do my best and if there is anything that you think I need to know and need to do, please call me or tell me. Nobles honored In his rst ofcial act at mayor, Davis recognized his predecessor. As my rst ofcial act, this is an honor, Davis said before reading off a proclamation that declared July 10, 2018, as Garth R. Continued From Page 1A City The most important thing you can do is help people get a job, Scott said, adding that during his two terms as governor, more than 1.5 mil lion jobs have been added in the state. He now wants to turn his attention to the federal gov ernment in Washington D.C. Im running for the sen ate because I think Washing ton needs to work for us, Scott said, adding that not every state is treated equally through federal programs. An example Scott provid ed was while all states pay the same federal tax rates, Medicaid will pay more to a person living in New York than a Floridian. I dont want to waste any money, he said. But if were going to have a program and were going to fund a program, were going to fund Florida just as well as we fund any other state. Scott also took aim at a few other changes hed like to see in the U.S. Congress and the federal government: term limits, a super majority of a 2/3 vote needed to raise taxes and fees (Scott backed the proposed constitutional amendment requiring the same that will be on the November ballot for the state legislature) and pro viding the President with line item veto powers. Scott also took issue with the legislature not be ing able approve a budget on time, therefore requiring the government to shut down (like it did for 16 days in 2013 or for three days earlier this year). They might shut down the state parks or shut down this or stop transpor tation efforts, but they keep getting paid, he said. If they dont have a budget, they shouldnt get paid. Continued From Page 1A Scott jamie.wachter@ganews.com LIVE OAK The City of Live Oaks millage rate may rise next year. At Tuesday nights meeting, the city council set the maximum mill age rate at 9.1771, the rollback rate. The citys current millage rate is 8.9132. The rollback rate is the tax rate that will provide the same amount of tax revenue as the previous years rate. City Manager Ron Williams and Joanne Luther, the citys nance di rector, recommended to the council that it use the rollback rate as the maximum. Our property values went up slightly but there were some reduc tions in personal property, Wil liams said about the rollback rate going up. During the budgeting process, the council can decide to lower the millage rate but it can not raise it. Well have calculated the reve nue lost or gained for any rate that you set, Williams added. And, of course, the nancial impact on the city. Luther and Williams said the city would lose around $54,500 in reve nue if the council chose to keep the current millage rate when asked by councilor Mark Stewart. Stewart also expressed concern about setting the millage rate high er. I dont know how many times it goes down, he said. It just con cerns me that it may not actually go down. Williams replied: Well, that would be the decision of the city council at the time. But we need to set the maximum tonight. Council President Bennie Thom as agreed. We can bring it down to where we want it, Thomas said should the council decide to lower the rate. The city also set its two budget hearings for Sept. 11 and Sept. 25, both at 5:30 p.m. The citys current millage rate is down slightly from the 2016-17 rate of 8.925. That rate was a twomill increase from the previous rate of 6.92 in 2015-16. In addition to setting the two budget hearings, the council also rescheduled its August meeting from Aug. 14 to Aug. 7.

Sports SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK FRIDAY, JULY 13, 2018 Game-like atmosphere helps Bulldogs improve michael.jones@ganews.com LIVE OAK With the start of the season about a month away, Suwannee offensive coordinator Mike Braun wanted to change things up a bit to help give the Bulldogs a more realistic football expe rience. So for Suwannees 7-on-7 workout against Lafayette on Tuesday, there was a little twist. Instead of running every play from the same spot in typical 7v7 fashion, both teams started each drive on their own 30-yard. They were given eight plays to go down the eld moving forward with each completion and try and go 70 yards to reach the end zone. Were on the back side of the summer plan. Its time to start getting more game situations, Braun said. It felt like we had more of an opportunity to get better today. For Suwannee, which looked a little at in its last 7v7 outing, the change of pace helped. The Bulldogs were able to run some different plays depending on eld position. They went up-tempo at times and also huddled, and worked both long and short routes. Missing some key players, Suwannee also had the chance to work in some younger players. Today was fresher. Guys got there legs back after Fourth of July, said Braun. Weve still got some questions at positions. Were trying to answer those questions as best we can without pads on. We answered some questions ques tions today. Suave White had a big day on both sides of the ball, breaking up two passes and coming up with an interception. He also lined up at wide receiver and caught six passes. Antonio White worked some nice routes to nish with four catches. All together, the Bulldogs ran seven drives and 56 plays. Suwannees longest play was a 45-yard touchdown when Tyree Taylor threw a nice pass to hit Jaquez Moore in stride. ** Hamilton County and Lafayette stories/ photos will be in next weeks paper. rfrnfnrrt bfrt ffrffrrt Owens teaching basketball to Suwannee County youth michael.jones@ganews.com LIVE OAK Passion ate about teaching the game of basketball, Elane Owens is helping grow the sport with Suwannee County youth. For the third straight year, Owens, of Live Oak, is holding a summer basketball camp for girls, ages 5 and up. Camp days are Mon days and Wednesdays from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Suwannee County Coli seum. Its important to learn the fundaments at an early age, Owens said. When I was coming up we had camps like this. They kind of went away and I want ed to bring it back. Its not just about basketball. Its also about being committed to some thing and being willing to learn. There are still spots available for the next two weeks. The nal day will be a celebration ceremony on July 30. rrrrfnrrnt nft frr bfbbnr michael.jones@ ganews.com BRANFORD The Branford Buccaneers were without some of their top players as they hosted Hamilton County and Bell on Tuesday in 7-on-7 football. But even with a lot of new players seeing action, the Bucs were able to hold their own in the three-team, twohour workout. We were missing a ton of kids. But allaround, it was a lot of good work, said Bran ford coach Tim Clark. We had some DBs play for the rst time in varsity. This is good for them to get a taste of the speed without the hitting, without the contact. Gain some condence. Its really a teaching environment. With quarterback Je vin Johnson out, rising junior Seth Heiderman got all the reps and completed 12 of 30 passes. Junior Cress caught half of those passes as he was the Bucs leading receiver. bfnffnrrt rrrrrnft frbr bft
