FINANCIAL FOCUS Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) are quite popular. At the end of 2017, investors owned nearly $9 trillion in IRA assets, according to the Investment Company Institute, a trade association of U.S. investment companies. Given these numbers, it probably wouldnt be surprising if you inherited an IRA someday. But what should you do with it? First of all, youll need to be aware of some basic rules. If your parent, or anyone other than your spouse, leaves you a traditional IRA one in which contributions are typically tax-deductible and earnings can grow tax-deferred you can transfer the money into an inherited IRA, from which youll need to take at least a minimum amount of money technically called a distribution each year, based on your life expectancy. ese distributions are taxable at your regular income tax rate. If youve inherited a Roth IRA, you also must take these minimum payouts, but the amounts wont count as taxable income, because your parents, or whoever le you the IRA, already paid taxes on the contributions that went into it. (To make sure you fully understand all the guidelines on distributions and taxation of inherited IRAs, consult with your tax advisor.) Its also important to understand how your inherited IRA will t in to your overall nancial strategy. Consequently, youll need to address these questions: above, you must take a distribution of at least a minimum amount from your inherited IRA each year if you dont, you may be subject to a 50% penalty on the amount you should have taken. But you can take out more than the minimum. In deciding how much to take, youll need to evaluate a few factors. First, of course, is whether you need the extra money to help support your regular cash ow. Its possible you have other pools of income from which to draw, and, in some cases, it may be advantageous for you to tap these sources rst. Another consideration is taxes if youve inherited a traditional IRA, the more you take out each year, the bigger your tax bill may be. an IRA doesnt mean youre stuck with the original account owners investment choices. You can change the investments to align with your goals and risk tolerance, both of which may change over time. nancial strategy? Youll need to consider how your newly inherited IRA ts in to the big picture of your nancial strategy. Are you adding redundancies? If you keep the inherited IRA largely intact, how will it aect your current investment mix? Could the added income from required distributions change your retirement calculations or even enable you to retire earlier? You may want to consult with a nancial professional about these and other questions related to your inherited IRA. e person who le you an IRA worked hard for that money and thought enough of you to pass it on. Consequently, youll want to respect this inheritance and get the most out of it for as long as you can. 112166-1 DOWLING PARK Everyone has their gifts, and with those gifts come benets and chal lenges. Advent Christian Village member Francine Strattons gift was her beauty. In fact, in a New Yorker article written about her, Alison Rose wrote that Stratton was unnervingly beautiful. While Stratton has lived a life full of glamour be cause of her outer beauty, she has not let that glam our diminish her inner beauty. Strattons mother, Fran ces, was also extremely beautiful she and her four sisters. A governor of Georgia once referred to Stratton and her mother as the Eighth Wonder of the World. Despite their poor upbringing in the hills of Tennessee, Frances and her sisters knew their beauty would one day res cue them and it eventu ally did for all of them. Frances married her high school sweetheart and Stratton was born in Nash ville, but the family soon moved to Atlanta since her father was in the navy. Her parents divorced when Stratton was very young. Her mother moved to New York, taking Stratton with her. Stratton lived at the exclusive Rose Haven School for Girls while her mother attended Par sons Design School. She eventually became an ex tremely successful interior designer in Atlanta. Friend and author, Alison Rose writes, Francines mother kept Francine in strict beauty training all her life be cause her mother felt her happiness and success depended upon her beauty. But Stratton remained pos itive, heeding her mothers instruction and using it to live in a world where people stared at her at all times, and men lined up to spend time with her. Frances had many strict beauty tips for her daugh ter, such as never let a drop of sun fall on your skin, or one drop of water on your face (washing your face washes your skin away) and never go out without being fully dressed or without make up. Frances also stressed that Stratton should always act like a lady. A man will walk a million miles for a good woman, she used to tell her daughter. Stratton loved to dance and danced every day. She had been in the Atlanta Ballet Company for ve years when her moth er sent her to nishing school at La Chtelainie in Gstaad, Switzerland. Un fortunately, ballet was not taught there, so Stratton took a train every week to Montreux to continue her training. One of Charlie Chap lins daughters danced with Stratton in Montreux. She performed a ballet solo, and at a reception afterward, Chaplin came up to her and, although his daughter had also per formed, said, You were the best ballet dancer here today. One summer, Frances arranged for Stratton to meet Alfred Hitchcock. While he initially thought she was a journalist, he still spent hours talking with her. He apologized that he could not help her break into show business. He explained that he had just spent a million dol lars on Tippi Hedren. After two and a half A beauty inside and out: Stratton lived a life of glamour years in Switzerland, Stratton moved back to the U.S. and attended Marjorie Webster Junior College near Washington D.C., where she majored in speech and drama. Then she studied acting at the Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre in New York. It was while living at the famous Barbizon Hotel for Women in New York City that she met Rose, who became her best friend and in 1997 wrote the story of Strattons life entitled Tales of a Beauty for the New Yorker. After successfully land ing roles in many plays in Atlanta, Stratton relocated to Los Angeles with her mother. It was the 60s and LA was full of thrills and excitement. One of her good friends during this time was Elia Kazan, the director, producer, writer and actor described by The New York Times as one of the most honored and inuential directors in Broadway and Hollywood history. Kazan is respon sible for classics such as On the Waterfront and A Streetcar Named Desire. Stratton met Elvis Pres ley when she accompanied a girlfriend who had been invited to his home. Elvis insisted Stratton dance with him, so she jitter bugged with him to Blue Suede Shoes. She didnt like Elvis. There just wasnt any thing that appealed to me about him whatsoever, she said. After her visit, he called her a few times, but she never saw him again. Around that time, Strat ton met and married her rst husband, Paul Brian Burke. He was the son of actor Paul Burke who starred in several televi sion shows and movies such as Valley of the Dolls. The couple had a daughter they named Fran cesca, but the marriage ended when she was just a few months old. Stratton later married a Texas oil millionaire and gave birth to another daughter, Zoe. Strattons father was in real estate and purchased for her a building near Austin in which she opened a ballet school, enjoying every moment of it. When her marriage dissolved after eight years, she returned to Atlanta. After several more moves, Stratton settled in Sarasota, Florida. Even tually, she decided she wanted to move to a senior living community. She knew a friend of the editor of Guideposts magazine and asked if she had any suggestions. The editor suggested Advent Chris tian Village, and Stratton moved to Dowling Park in 2014. Alison Rose writes, Francine had a lot of fun being a beauty. While she lived in New York, she went to countless formal balls and was always out dancing. She used to come back to the Barbizon to change clothes for the nights second or third date. She thought all that was fun. She may not have learned it at home, but Francine has always had an inner beauty, which made her actual beauty about a million times as forceful and divine as maybe it even was. So far, Stratton has re ceived 14 proposals, many from heirs. At one time, rf n tfbffttrfff LIVE OAK The Arc North Florida, Inc. has named Quinn A. Ban as its new fundraising coor dinator. Ban comes to the Arc North Florida with a diverse back ground, including years of experience in the hospitality industry, pharmaceutical industry, healthcare industry and education. Ban started her career in sales and marketing for hotels, opening up markets for various hotels during this time. My major focus is to build the awareness of services and gain sup port for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities, Ban said in a release. As Ban continued to advance her education, receiving a Bachelors of Science in Marketing and later a Masters of Science in Human Resources and Labor Relations, she also opened a continuing education department for a Florida college. Ban then became a pharmaceutical speciality representative in the North Florida and South Georgia area. In the past seven years, Ban spent been teaching in North Florida. In addition to two children in middle school, Ban enjoys outdoor activities, family time, kayaking, camping, swimming, tubing and all the attributes North Florida has to offer. The Arc North Florida serves Su wannee, Hamilton, Lafayette, Baker and Columbia counties. Ban named Arcs fundraising coordinator TALLAHASSEE A Jasper woman won $1 million in a Florida Lottery scratch-off game. The Florida Lottery announced July 12 that Mary Hughes claimed the $1 million prize in the $5,000,000 Monopoly Florida Edition scratchoff-game at the lottery headquarters in Tallahassee. Hughes chose to receive her win nings as a one-time, lump-sum pay ment of $770,000. The winning ticket was purchased at S&M Discount Beverage, located at 101 Hayley Street in Jasper. S&M Discounty receives a $2,000 commis sion bonus for selling the winning ticket. The $20 Monopoly scratch-off game features six top prizes of $5 mil lion and 20 more $1 million prizes. Jasper woman wins $1M scratch-off prize she was courted by Prince Friedrich of Prussia. What Stratton is most proud of, however, is the extraordinary life shes lived, her ballet and most of all her daughters and granddaughter. Francesca lives in New York and runs a design company and Zoe is a vice pres ident of Zoo Atlanta. Both daughters are very beautiful, but Stratton did not raise them to focus on their beauty the way she was raised. Her grand daughter Sylvie, also a beauty, is a ballet dancer like her grandmother.

You might even have the same laugh as your mother, or walk with the same gait as your father. While these types of things are easily seen by the naked eye, certain medical conditions your family members had may not be so easy to deter mine from just a glance. And, your family history can have a major impact on your overall health and wellness. Along with genes, families also often share similar environments and lifestyles. When we take all these factors together, we notice patterns of cer tain conditions or diseases that run in your family. Many of these conditions, like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and even some types of cancer, have risk factors that can be ad dressed early on if you know youre more at risk. This is why its so im portant to learn as much as you can about your family health history. A family medical history is a record of health infor mation about both your health and the health of your close relatives from the last three generations. These relatives include your parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts/uncles and cousins. rfnftbftftffb nnnnfbfnb nftbf DOWLING PARK Advent Christian Vil lages mission from the beginning has been to minister to people both within the community and outside Dowling Park. One outreach into the greater community is a partnership with The Arc North Florida. For 15 years, ACVs Dick Grillo has been volunteering time each week (nine months per year) to enhance the lives of The Arcs clients. Grillo has been a life long musician, singing and playing his guitar. He takes his enjoyment of music and uses it to en rich the lives of The Arc clients as they come to ACV to make music under Grillos leadership. Most often, the music is for their own enjoyment, but occasionally, they sing for an audience. Recently, ACV hosted just such a concert. The Arcs Flaggers & Sing ers performed a patriotic program at The Village Church. The program included several musical numbers. The Flaggers, led by volunteers Henry and Laurie Hernandez, danced with ags and ban ners of many shapes, sizes and colors. The different members added physical beauty to the emotional words of the songs. Grillo also led the Singers and the audience in several songs, including patriotic standards like the Star Spangled Banner and America the Beautiful. Our community enjoys many freedoms, The Arc wrote in the program, which are sometimes tak en for granted. We enjoy these freedoms because the people of our neigh borhoods have unselshly supported others whenever theyve been called upon. Our town is the land of the free and home of the brave! The Arc North Flori da and its volunteers are extending freedom and unselshly supporting the disabled in the area. The Arc North Florida pro vides advocacy, employ ment training and living services for people with disabilities in Suwannee, Hamilton, Lafayette, Co lumbia and Baker coun ties. The Arc provides services to all adults with a variety of intellectual and developmental dis abilities including Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, spina bida and autism. In addition, many of their cli ents have visual, hearing, physical and emotional disabilities. At The Arc, individuals in the Adult Day Training program receive the neces sary training to function as independently as possible, and each client is provided opportunities to participate fully in the community. Program participants who have a stated goal of em ployment receive job skills training to enable them to make a successful transi tion to work. The Arcs Support Services program allows their clients access to individual recreational, leisure, educational and social opportunities in the community where they work and live. It was a real joy to watch the faces of the clients as they danced and sang on June 27. The smiles were large and con tagious. Let freedom ring!

The inaugural RKDS Film Festival received a signicant visit from actor and writer Ricky Schro der on Saturday. The festival was hosted by RKDS Entertainment and Me dia Thursday through Saturday, July 12-14, at Mathis City Auditorium and featured select movies from local lmmakers. Schroder, who played Ricky Stratton in the television series Silver Spoons and starred in NYPD Blue, attended to view the debut of Days and a Wake Up. The documentary focuses on Army soldiers wounded and killed in the 2008 Battle of Wanat in Afghanistan. Prior to the lms premiere Saturday, the actor met with its creator, Frankie Gay, and two surviving soldiers from the Bat tle of Wanat, Pfc. Scott Stenoski and Specialist Jeff Scantlin. Im here to support all these guys and honor and pay trib ute to what happened 10 years ago, he said. Im excited to see the documentary. Days and a Wake Up honors the nine soldiers of the 173rd Airborne 503rd Infantry out of Fort Benning Chosen Company who were killed in action July 13, 2008, including Gays son, Cpl. Pruitt Rainey. Rainey was 22 years old when he and others were attacked by hundreds of Taliban members 11 days before they were set to return home, Gay said. He was buried July 24, 2008, the day he was supposed to come home. What began nine years ago as a probe into what happened to Rainey transformed into a full documentary after speaking with soldiers, Gay said. I knew that the guys that was on the ground with my son would be honest with me, he said. Stenoski was in the Army for three years and eight months. Scantlin is active-duty and joined the Army in 2005. Scantlin said it was difcult to lm the documentary, add ing that Battle of Wanat changed the lives of soldiers and their families. We think this is an important enough story that were here to support Frankie and this project to make sure that other people hear the story because I think itll have a positive effect and (will be) an inspiration to the public to know what hap pened, he said. Scantlin believes Days and a Wake Up is about resur recting the stories of the deceased soldiers in an effort to bring about appreciation for their sacrices. Hearing the experiences of Stenoski and Scantlin was touching for Schroder, who said he was present at the festival to see the documentary and possibly further the narrative. Perhaps one day, therell be another story told about the Battle of Wanat, he said. Stenoski said the experience in the battle was one that was unique and unable to be replicated. We were just there to do our job and it just sucks that we didnt do it to 110 percent. A lot of good guys fought that day, warriors, like gladiators, he said. Friday was a difcult day for Gay as it marked 10 years since his son has passed. Honoring both the living and de ceased soldiers is a constant effort, he said. As long as the story continues, and as long as our soldiers, even the survivors, names are remembered and talked about, then they never die, he said. The nine soldiers who were killed in action are as follows: 1st Lt. Jonathan P. Brostrom, Sgt. Israel Garcia, Cpl. Jonathan R. Ayers, Cpl. Jason M. Bogar, Cpl. Jason D. Hovater, Cpl. Matthew B. Phillips, Cpl. Pruitt A. Rainey, Cpl. Gunnar W. Zwilling and Pfc. Sergio S. Abad.

I was reminded last week about what a great, free resource we have here in Live Oak. My friend and I played a round of disc golf at the course located on the east end of the Heritage Park and Gardens at 1004 Helvenston Street. We arrived shortly after a rain in the late afternoon and were the only ones on the course. It has been said that golf is a good walk ruined, and I suppose if you are the type that lets giving up a stroke or two because you hit a tree bother you, disc golf might ruin your walk through this beautiful area as well. One thing is certain, getting off the couch and getting some fresh air while walking outside is rarely a bad idea. The disc golf course at Heritage Park starts very near the parking area located near the intersection of Helven ston Street and Lee Ave. There are signs at each hole that indicate the various starting points and targets. A practice target that is the hole in disc golf is located near the parking area as well. There is some seating available if you need to take a break or brought someone with you who does not want to walk around the course with you. I would like to thank the county park maintenance crew for keeping the course mowed even with all of the rain we have had lately in our area. Most of the holes are well shaded, but there are a couple that require walking out in the full sun. You might not want to play a round in the middle of the day until it cools off around here in November. You get to see a great mix of pine, oak and magnolia trees as you play all nine holes. If you dont have a set of disc golf discs, dont worry. It is possible to play a round with a regular Frisbee disc. If you played a round or two and decide to get a threedisc set of disc golf discs it will only set you back about 18 dollars. Even if you want to pay for a top-of-the-line driver or putter, they rarely cost more than 20 dollars. My friend and I were able to nish our leisurely round of nine holes in about 45 minutes. It might take a cou ple beginners a bit longer to make their way around the well-manicured nine holes. The park is open from sun up till sun down. It is a great resource to have in our area, and a great way to make your walk through the woods a bit more exciting. Eric lives in Suwannee County and is a public school educator.

Opinion A PAGE 6 rfrfnftrbfbf ftfrrbfbf Making a good walk even better Justice Anthony Kennedys retire ment, leading to President Donald Trumps nomination of Brett Kavana ugh to the Supreme Court, has thrown progressives, the Democratic Party and the news media into an out-andout tizzy. The online magazine Slate declared, Anthony Kennedy Just De stroyed His Legacy as a Gay Rights Hero. The New York Times edito rial board said about a second Trump court appointment, It is a dark mo ment in the history of the court and the nation, and its about to get a lot darker. Its indeed a dark moment for those whove for de cades used the courts to accomplish what would have been impossible through federal and state legislatures such as same-sex marriage, abortion and preferences with regard to race and sex. With this Supreme Court pick and possibly another during his term President Trump can return us to the Framers vision of the judiciary a vision thats held in contempt by many liberals and con servatives. The U.S. Constitution represents our rules of the game. Supreme Court justices should be seen as umpires or referees, whose job is to enforce neutral rules. Ill give a somewhat trivial example of neutral rules from my youth; lets call it Moms Rule. On occasion, my sister and I would have lunch in my mothers absence. Shed ask either me or my younger sister to divide a last piece of cake or pie. More often than not, an argument would ensue about the fairness of the cut. Those arguments ended when Mom came up with a rule: Whoever cuts the cake lets the other take the rst piece. As if by magic or divine intervention, fairness emerged, and arguments ended. No matter who did the cutting, there was an even division. Thats the kind of rule we need for our society the kind whereby youd be OK even if your worst enemy were in charge. By creating and enforcing neutral rules, we minimize conict. Consider one area of ruthless com petition where thats demonstrated sports. The 52nd Super Bowl featured the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots. A lot was at stake. Each player on the winning team would earn $112,000; losers would get half that. Plus, each winner would get a Super Bowl ring that might cost as much as $40,000. Despite a bitterly fought contest and all that was at stake, the game ended peaceably, and winners and losers were civil to one another. How is it that players with con icting interests can play a game, agree with the outcome and walk away as good sports? Its a miracle of sorts. That miracle is that it is far easier to reach agreement about the games rules than the games outcome. The rules are known and durable. The referees only job is evenhanded enforcement of those rules. Suppose footballs rules were living and the referee and other ofcials played a role in determining them. The ofcials could adjust the applications of the rules. Suppose the ofcials were more interested in the pursuit of what they saw as football justice than they were in the unbiased enforcement of neutral rules. In the case of Super Bowl LII, ofcials might have considered it unfair that the Eagles had never won a Super Bowl and the Patriots had won ve. If ofcials could determine game rules, team owners, instead of trying to raise team productivity, would spend resources lobbying or brib ing ofcials. The returns from raising team productivity would be reduced. Also, I doubt that the games would end amicably. The players probably wouldnt walk off the eld peaceably, shaking hands and sharing hugs, as they do now. We should demand that Supreme Court justices act as referees and enforce the U.S. Constitution. If they dont and play favorites with different groups of Americans, as weve seen, the potential for conict among the Amer ican people is enhanced. Who is appointed to the high court becomes the all-consuming issue. The question is not whether a justice would uphold and defend the Con stitution but whether he would rig the game to benet one American or another. Walter E.

The fact that millions of dollars are spent on high school athletic facilities comes as no surprise to anyone. It is also a fact that sports, especially high school football, bring in a lot of money. In North Florida and South Georgia, football is king. Stadiums sell out every Friday night of the sea son. It is also an expensive sport to play. The hope is that revenues are sufcient to keep players playing and that facilities, upkeep and equipment are not a heavy taxpayer burden. Still, we know that special local option sales tax es are used to fund facilities in many cases. We are in no way opposed to public school ath letics. Sports can teach very important life lessons and some great opportunities for a college education are provided to many young men and women in our community who are able to both play at the next level of their respective sport and, in turn, receive a college degree. Because of basic academic requirements, athletes sometimes must work harder in the classroom in order to stay on the team. That is a good thing. We do believe there should always be balance and that athletics should never become more im portant than academics. We are fortunate to have great coaches in our public school systems who spend time reviewing grades, emphasizing character and setting high standards of conduct for young athletes. This week, the SunLight Project team of report ers led public records requests, conducted inter views and crunched numbers as they took a look at the price tags of public school athletic facilities. Some readers may have a bit of sticker shock, especially here in North Florida where the high school facility arms race hasnt taken off like in South Georgia. Others will consider it to be money well spent or might even wonder if their particular school is lagging behind. A high school football stadium can, at times, be a crown jewel in a community and even a venue for other large events, not the least of which is high school graduation. Regardless of how readers and communities feel about how much money has been, is being and will be spent on elds and facilities, we believe every one has the right to know. Paying to play

JULY 18 & 19, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 8A State & Region jed.may@ganews.com NASHVILLE, Ga. Dirt and construc tion equipment ll what will be a walkway and bleachers. Temporary orange fencing surrounds the green rectangle of grass where games will be played this fall. In the end zone, a worker climbs scaffolding high above where fans will line up in just a few short weeks for soda and hamburgers. This is the site of the new football facil ity at Berrien High School. A facility that Principal Angie Lovein and football coach Tim Alligood said will include two new sides of seating, a concession stand build ing and a eld house. These types of construction projects are becoming more common in high school athletics, especially in high school football. Schools increasingly try keeping up with what other schools are doing and making sure their facilities are the best. The SunLight Project representing Valdosta, Tifton, Milledgeville, Dalton, Thomasville, Ga., and Live Oak, Fla. spoke with administrators and coaches from several schools about the need to have the best facilities, as well as the costs and benets of spending funds on upgrades. Its kind of like that movie Field of Dreams, Alligood said. If you build it, they will come. Its about time There are other things coming down the line in terms of facilities upgrades at Berrien. There are plans for a new track, and things such as lighting need to be ad dressed at the baseball eld. But Lovein said everyone recognized the football facilities were in the greatest need of im provement. The stadium was originally built in the 1950s, with some remodeling done later in the 1970s. The eld house had only two bathrooms for all the coaches and players, and the concession stand lines were a nightmare. I wouldnt go up there, Lovein said of the old concession stand. We felt like we lost a lot just because it was in such an inconvenient place and it was so small. At other schools, the stadiums faced issues. At neighboring Lowndes High School, opposing football teams used to dress un der the bleachers at Martin Stadium. The rooms were small for an entire team, with concrete oors and walls. An identical room on the home side of the stands is now used as a storage space for tackling dummies. We had a lot of teams that wouldnt even go in there, said Danny Redshaw, Lowndes assistant principal in charge of facilities. Theyd stay on the sideline, or theyd go out to their buses. The old Lowndes gym had its share of problems too. Redshaw said he wanted to SEE STADIUM, PAGE 9A rffntbf rfntbtbfbbfrbnbbrbbfbrtbb improve the acoustics in the gym. If there were 50 people sitting in that old gym just having a regular conversa tion, you and I could not converse like this just because of the acoustics in it, he said. It was one of those old, loud gyms. At Valdosta Highs Bazemore-Hyder Stadium, locker rooms were an issue. Val dosta City Schools athletic director Regi nald Mitchell, who played for the Wildcats in the late 1980s and early 1990s, said the locker rooms were much smaller then, es pecially the visitors facilities which were located under the bleachers, similar to Martin Stadium. In use since 1922, the stadium des perately needed new seating, concession stands, restrooms and other amenities to restore it to its former glory. More recently, when current head coach Alan Rodemaker joined the staff as a de fensive coordinator in 2010, he thought Valdosta lacked enough space to practice. He said he believes a varsity team needs two full elds for practice, and he thought the current space was about a eld and a half short. Rodemaker said some basic appliances were missing, things he had been accus tomed seeing elsewhere. Everywhere Ive been, we washed the kids clothes every night and then washed game uniforms on Saturdays, Rodemaker said. But the day-to-day, I guess they didnt wash practice uniforms. So that was surprising to me. All of these facilities had shortcomings that were recognized and needed to be ad dressed. The focus then shifted to how to get the funds to x the problems. Show them the money For public schools, the equation is often fairly simple. Money for athletic facilities upgrades mostly comes from Special Purpose Local Option Sales Taxes. Berrien County approved a SPLOST last fall for the construction of the football stadium, but it also included plans for im provements to the tennis facility and track as well as a new band room. Even though the project isnt cheap Berrien School Superintendent Robin Marcrum gave an estimated cost of $4.4 million Lovein said the support for SPLOST was over whelming. I think the whole community knows theres such a need, Lovein said. No matter what, Friday night footballs really big here. Its where the community comes together. Thomasville High School benetted from a SPLOST that provided $1.65 mil lion for improvements to its stadium, with more than $653,000 devoted to new turf. Similarly, Valdosta passed a SPLOST II resolution in 2002 that covered the cost of renovations to Bazemore-Hyder Stadium. The renovations, which cost less than $7 million, according to Jennifer Steedley, Valdosta City Schools director of public relations, added a new two-story press box and articial turf playing surface to the eld. There were also new locker rooms and both home and visitors side stands. Seating capacity rose to more than 11,000. Valdosta City Schools Superintendent Dr. Todd Cason said when it comes to any type of athletic facility upgrades, there are people who voice their opinion that too much money goes toward athletics. While he said he respects their opinion, he be lieves the money is distributed fairly. I think weve done a good job of plan ning for that so that any child that comes to our school district can nd their niche, they can nd their place, Cason said. To do that, you have to spend money and try to spend it equitably. Not equally, but eq uitably across that district. Lowndes County has also been on the receiving end of a large amount of SPLOST money during the past decade. The gymnasium, which cost $8 million and opened in 2007, was paid for through SPLOST funds. SPLOST paid for renovations to the Vi kings football facilities, highlighted by a new weight room, a remodeled home side of the stadium and new locker rooms for visiting teams. The upgrades cost approxi mately $5.8 million. However, some improvements were paid for in other ways. Lowndes football coach Randy McPher son said some things, such as the updated equipment in the new weight room, was paid for by athletic funding such as ticket revenue. Theres also the JumboTron, which McPherson estimated at $300,000, that was a Touchdown Club endeavor and is nearly paid off. At Valdosta High, the Touchdown Club paid for a washer-and-dryer set at the school shortly after Rodemaker joined the staff. At the new Valdosta High School opening this school year, there are two washer-and-dryer sets included in the cost of the facility. Private donations have paid off for other schools. Suwannee High School in Live Oak received $55,000 in alumni donations to upgrade its weight room this year. The weight room, which now has the capacity for 100 people to be working out at the same time, received its facelift earli er this year. We have one of the nicer facilities in north central Florida, said Mike Braun, Suwannees athletic director and the football teams offensive coordinator. Through private funding, we put in one of the nicest weight rooms. In 2010, the Colquitt County Packer Touchdown Club paid for approximately $585,000 in upgrades to Tom White Field at Mack Tharpe Stadium, including putting turf on the eld. Private schools are dependent on do nations because they are not eligible to receive SPLOST funds. For example, John MiIlledge Acad emy in Milledgeville received roughly $325,000 from school supporters to build new bleachers and fencing around the football eld in 2017. When Valwood School in Valdosta moved to its new campus in 2002, local families stepped up to provide the money. The Hathcock family gave money for the tennis court, primarily gave the most money for the tennis court, said Brett Martin, Valwood athletic director. The Scruggs family donated for the track. The D.K. Hollis family, he had grandchildren here and his children have gone here, they donated for the softball eld. Martin said Steve Browning, as a base ball parent, has been generous, donating money for a hitting facility with locker rooms that now serves as the Valwood center eld fence. Browning gave money for a covered grandstand to shade Val wood baseball spectators from the sun at the aptly named Browning Field. The approximate cost for the projects is about $750,000. Martin said if he only had the school budget for facility upgrades, nothing would ever get done. Thats why donors are so critical. When you get somebody thatll give you that big lump sum to begin with and get you started, its so much easier to go and ask other people and get them to join in, Martin said. People by and large will. Martin said parents are aware of whats happening at other schools in the area. They see what SPLOST money does for public schools, and they want to make sure their children attend a school with similar amenities. Its been fantastic, the boom in schools over the past 10 years, Martin said. With that comes nicer facilities, its just the way of the world. Our parents see that, and the kids that are over here, they want them to have the same kind of experience. For the greater good New facilities may seem to only ben et their specic sport. But coaches and administrators say they help other athletic programs, as well as the school and com munity as a whole. A common theme across many schools is the desire to have facilities that can host other events. Whether its state playoffs or anything else, such as Special Olympics competitions that were held at Colquitt County Highs new indoor facility, hosting is at the forefront of facility planning. Part of the future construction plans at Berrien is a new track. Lovein praised the quality of the Berrien track team that sent several students to state meets last year but lamented the current track at Berrien cant host any meets. They deserve to be here and their classmates and their town watching them, Lovein said. John Milledge Academy head football coach J.T. Wall said his football facilities are at a point where hed feel comfortable hosting a Georgia Independent School As sociation All-Star Game if asked. Due to the new gym at Lowndes, the Vikings host state wrestling sectionals. Mitchell, the Valdosta athletic director, professed a desire to have his facilities host-ready. He said maintaining that standard benets the community and the school. People have got to have somewhere to stay, theyve got to have food to eat, so forth and so on, theyve got to pay for gas, Mitchell said. It really helps our community when were able to host large events. Facility upgrades also benet students who arent playing sports, sports ofcials say. For one, Rodemaker said seeing spar bbbrfr

Weight rooms are available to athletic and non-athletic students. Students taking a weight-training class have access to new and upgraded weight rooms at Lowndes, Valdosta and Suwannee. Valwoods weight room, built after the 2015 football season, is used by weight-training classes during the school day. However, the facility can act as a re cruiting tool. Austin Grant is the schools strength and conditioning coordinator, and he runs his own training business, Edge Perfor mance, from the facility before and after school. Martin said high school students from around the county come to train there, offering them the opportunity to see what else Valwood offers. They see whats going on out here and if theyre looking for another option for some reason, then here it is, Martin said. But ultimately, the facilities are geared toward student-athletes. As Rodemaker said, athletics are often the main draw for students to come to school. A lot of those kids, whether people like it or not, they come to school because they can play athletics, Rodemaker said. I mean Im almost to my doctorate now, but Ive gone to school because I could play ball. A lot of our kids, if we werent offer ing athletics, they wouldnt come to school and they certainly wouldnt make grades. The on-the-eld benets are there. Valwood coach Justin Henderson said the new weight room helped his team with conditioning in state playoff games last year. That means that weight facilitys worth every penny, Henderson said. The new weight room at Lowndes has had other effects. The Vikings used to gather before the game and at halftime in what was then the weight room, just behind the end zone in the teams eld house. Now, with the weights elsewhere, McPherson uses the space as a meeting room for the team. We meet every day with the team in there and do character lessons and stuff like that, McPherson said. I feel like its important that you have a place where you can sit the whole program down. At the end of the day, administrators recognize the necessity of having topnotch football facilities. Football makes the most money, especially in South Georgia, but some of the funds are used to support other sports. Same with facilities. Football stadiums at Valdosta and Val wood play host to soccer games. Mitchell said Bazemore-Hyder Stadium has been equipped with Sprinturf, a surface better designed to handle multiple sports. A new practice eld, complete with sidewalks and a wall around it, was built at Dalton High School ve years ago at a cost of $1.35 million. The eld is used as a practice eld by the football team, but as a competition venue for the lacrosse and track and eld teams, as well as the soccer team when weather forces the team to play on turf. While the facilities are nice, coaches who use them generally agree on one thing: They dont directly translate to more wins on the eld. Take the case of Lowndes, for example. The Vikings won three state champion ships in the years leading up to the reno vations to Martin Stadium. In the decade since, the team hasnt lifted the trophy once. I think new facilities will help, but I think great players are the difference, McPherson said. Others feel the opposite. When a team has success, people are going to pay to come watch them, which in turn offsets some other things, Thom asville athletic director Chris Merritt said. It allows them to take advantage of op portunities. Facilities have a direct impact on success. You cant do anything without a great playing surface. And at times, those bigger and better facilities may cause stadiums to lose some of their charm, some of the luster. When Suwannee High School upgraded Paul Langford Stadium in the early 1990s, the Bulldogs were coming off a string of four state championships in four years from 1987-90. New seating was put in on both sides of the stadium, expanding the seating ca pacity. Still, it wasnt perfect. The new stadium took away a lot of the atmosphere, former SHS coach Mike Pittman said. In the old stadium, you sat right next to the eld. You could reach your arm over the fence and touch some body. And according to long-time SHS assis tant Dan Marsee, there has never really been a big jump in attendance either. The old stadium only t 2,000 people, but they would sell 4-5,000 seats and have standing room only, he said. Attendance was what it was. The new stadium didnt drive up atten dance. The Arms Race The grand opening of Berriens new stadium is still more than a month away; the Rebels rst game in the new stadium isnt until Aug. 31, a later date to provide a safety net in case of construction delays. Even so, that game is fast becoming the hottest ticket in Berrien history. The Touchdown Club has been selling re served seats, and theyre going fast. Theyre driving us crazy because we dont even have (the bleachers) up yet and were trying to visually decide where were going to put them, Lovein said. Such community enthusiasm is part of the reason schools are driven to keep their facilities updated. Its why the work of a school is never done when it comes to ath letic facilities. Valdosta has the most reason to be com placent; the Wildcats are moving into a new high school this fall. The new school has a gym with three basketball courts, an auxiliary gym for wrestling and competi tive cheer and a state-of-the art track and new tennis courts, among other things. However, Cason isnt satised. His fo cus is the baseball and softball complex, with a goal of building a press box and batting cages as well as putting turf on the elds. He estimated the cost of the project as between $3 million to $5 million. Colquitt County football coach Rush Propst isnt sitting back when it comes to his football stadium. He said hed like to see the stadium equipped with better lighting, a new dressing room for visiting teams and a press box that accommodates larger coaching staffs and advanced tech nology. Both of the schools have dealt with talk of a potential new football stadium. On the site of the new Colquitt County High School, space has been set aside for a new stadium should it ever be pursued. Propst said the new stadium could cost anywhere from $15 million to $25 million. However, Propst said hes not pushing for a new stadium. Theres a sense of tra dition at Tom White Field at Mack Tharpe Stadium, the domain of the Packers since 1954 and home of three state champion ship teams. Of course, no stadium oozes tradition like Valdostas Bazemore-Hyder Stadium, home of the winningest program in high school football history. Despite all the history at the current location, Cason said hes asked often by fans if and when a new stadium will be built at the location of the new high school on Inner Perimeter Road. Rodemaker said he believes 60 or so acres have been set aside at the new Valdosta High site for a potential new stadium. However, he added it would take a buyer of the current stadium and sur rounding property, most likely Valdosta State University, to provide a good chunk of the funding. If you sell it to somebody, youve got to have the dollars to build a new one, Rodemaker said. The dollars that they pay for that facilitys got to be close to the dollars that youre going to pay to rebuild it. With new facilities, especially some thing as grand as a new stadium, comes an added boost of pride within a community. Look no further than Berrien, where tick ets for the home opener are selling like milk and bread before a snowstorm. In Valdosta, particularly, facilities are cause for a community to puff out its col lective chest. Its not enough to be at the top of the leaderboard in the all-time wins rankings. Everyone wants respect for the facilities where the team wins. I feel Valdosta historically has always been a program thats been in the fore front, leading, Mitchell said. Weve kind of been the program that people have kind of, for lack of a better term, idolized through the years. So we want to keep that aura about ourselves. Outside of instilling pride in their fan bases, schools are also competing with each other. Its part of what Valwoods Martin dubbed an arms race in high school athletics, a phenomenon that has soaked into high school athletics to the point where it can even be seen in the email signature of Thomas County Central athletic director Sam Holland: Nulli Se cundus, or second to none. McPherson said he believes the race started in Texas. He went to visit several of the top high school programs there in Continued From Page 8A Stadium State & Region 2004 and was blown away by what he saw. I looked at three or four of the top pro grams and I saw their facilities, McPher son said. Of course two of them had indoors. One school I pulled up to, Allen High School, I pulled up to the eld house and I thought it was the high school. McPherson returned and spoke with administrators about what hed seen, and just a few years later, Martin Stadium was renovated. That arms race in South Georgia hasnt crossed state lines into North Flori da, at least not yet. As Kyler Hall browses through the list of opponents his team is scheduled to face this fall, he cant identify a team with bet ter football facilities than his Suwannee Bulldogs. Suwannee will play teams from all across North Florida this season in rural towns and big cities from Tallahassee to Yulee. For Hall, Suwannees head coach, and the rest of his staff, its the Bulldogs who have best facilities in the area. At the center of that is Langford Stadi um, home of the Bulldogs since 1935 when it was described as one of the best lighted and nest playing elds in North Florida. In addition to the upgrade in the stands in the early 1990s, a new scoreboard was added to Langford Stadium in 2015. Second to none, is how Pittman de scribed the stadium upgrade. In the 1990s or even just in 2004, reno vations at one school might not have meant much to students and parents of another school. But in todays age of social media, athletes, just like coaches and adminis trators, are always aware of what other schools have. The pressures there because the mindset has changed of todays athletes, Mitchell said. Its kind of a What have you done for me lately?-type mindset. To make your program attractive, youve got to make sure you have those bells and whistles that folks are looking for. While students transferring schools for athletics isnt as much of an epidemic in South Georgia, it cant be totally discount ed. Martin said if and when athletes are looking for a change of scenery, schools have to be prepared. Hes not going to transfer to a place thats a dump, Martin said. Regardless of the level of coaching, regardless of the opportunities to play, by and large, theyre not going to transfer from a really nice facility to a place thats a dump. Theyre just not going to do it, so everybodys got to keep up. These types of constant upgrades dont come without hardships. At Berrien, the varsity locker room has been housed in classroom 313 since construction started after last season. The weight room has been an old auto-mechanical shop, com plete with a lift for a car under one of the platforms. The rest of the school has been affected. The soccer team played on the road for the entirety of the 2018 season, and graduation had to be relocated from the traditional football eld location to the conference center on the Tifton campus of the Univer sity of Georgia. My daughter graduated this year, said Lovein, a Berrien alumna who graduated on the eld herself. Nobody wanted grad uation at this high school more than me. But at this point, thats just part of work ing in high school athletics. Its kind of turned into who can up the ante, Alligood said. In The House When Cason is out and about in Valdo sta, he gets asked one question more than any other. When you talk to fans, they ask about an indoor practice facility, Cason said. In a region that is bombarded by con stant heat and frequent afternoon rain showers, indoor practice facilities offer football teams the opportunity to practice no matter what the weather is doing. Cason said he always tells fans there currently isnt the funding for an indoor facility, but he continues to get the ques tion because they know what other school districts are doing. In this case, one district stands out above the others: Colquitt County. Voters in Colquitt County approved building an indoor facility, which is more than 73,000 square feet, in March 2016. Funding for the approximately $3.7 million structure came from an E-SPLOST refer endum. Propst visited similar facilities in other states. In addition to letting his team prac tice every day, he said it can be used by other outdoor sports at Colquitt and it ben ets the football players as students. We think this will let our kids get home earlier a lot of days to let them rest and let them study, Propst said. The facility has a 100-yard turf eld with one end zone, as well as a kicking net with a simulated goal post. In addition to eight 24-foot fans, there are also 10 over head coiling doors which can be opened to increase airow. The facility opened this spring and includes a new 8,300-square-foot weight room. Colquitt County School System Superintendent Doug Howell has called it the crown jewel of other recent facility upgrades. And when you have a crown jewel, as Doug Howell called it, you know youve got a leg up on your opponents, Propst said. While indoor facilities have yet to come to fruition elsewhere, the conversations are always out there. McPherson said an indoor facility hasnt been discussed at Lowndes, but he knows its a constant top ic on the minds of fans. Valdosta High School is also without an indoor practice facility. However, Rode maker said he believes an indoor facility is eventually in the plans at Valdostas new high school, although hes not sure when. That facilitys used more than any facil ity on campus, Rodemaker said. Football probably uses it less than anybody else. Youre talking about baseball can practice in there, track. ... Itd be something for the whole athletic program. Rodemaker said an indoor facility would greatly enhance the entire athletic program. However, he made it a point to say that as far as necessity, theres not anything down here thats probably a necessity. Cason can speak to that as well as any one. He noted there are no indoor playing facilities in Georgia, so players have to get accustomed to the heat and humidity of playing outdoors. As for rain, he recalls coaching at Val dosta and seeing former coach Nick Hyder stay out in the storm as long as possible before moving practice to the gym. It was just as intense as it was on the eld, Cason said. Now we couldnt tack le, but you teach the fundamentals in that capacity. Now, other teams might be able to tackle if theyre inside, but well still get that same kind of fundamental teaching in the gym. The desire for an indoor facility isnt just limited to public schools that could utilize tax-based funding. Martin said an ultimate goal is to have an indoor at Valwood. He said staff has spoken to people about where it would go and how much it would cost. While its not necessarily right around the corner, something Martin never would have thought would happen at Valwood is now a distinct possibility. Ten years ago, if youd have said, Would you ever think about having an indoor? Id laugh and laugh because you know its not going to happen, Martin said. You didnt think it was going to hap pen. But now, all that stuff becomes more of a reality as you see other people do it.

The Udells began work on the new building in May 2014. Douglas Udell Sr. said the reason for the new building was two-fold: family and the community. We built this for my sons and for them to oper ate, he said about Douglas II, who works with him, and William, who is in school right now. The facility is built for them to operate and we built it for the community, to provide a total funeral service. Anything they want we do it all. It can all be done from here. Douglas Udell II agreed that they had the com munity in mind when deciding to construct the new building that has allowed them to expand the services they provide, including a private view ing room for the family as well as a kitchen area where they can serve food during visitations. Its much more conve nient, he said. Its not for us. Its for the people we serve, for the commu nity that we live in and the surrounding counties. While thankful and grateful for the newly opened building, the Udells dont plan to stop there. Their old building is scheduled to be town down next month and then the second phase of the new facility will begin. That phase will include another chapel, one that will have room to seat 250. It will also include additional parking. We can really provide a service with the space we have, the convenience of this building, Douglas Udell Sr. said.

Announced as an Achievement Award winner from the National Association of Counties (NACo) in May for its business incentive pro gram, the county received the award during NACos annual conference Satur day. The awards are designed to honor innovative, effec tive county government programs that strengthen services for residents. The program was put in place in 2015. It is a point-based sys tem that determines which businesses, both new and expanding ones, are quali ed for tax rebates. Those rebates are based on points for the amount of capital investment in addition to facility size, the number of new jobs cre ated and the wages to be paid, proximity to existing utilities, locating the busi ness within the CRA or other business zone and for new business, if the appli cant is already a Suwannee County resident. Based on those criteria, the businesses can earn rebates of 75 percent on its ad valorem taxes and 50 percent of the tangible business personal property tax from two years up to four years. Those rebates are paid out over a sev en-year span to allow the county to invest some of that tax revenue into in frastructure improvements toward future economic development. I think the reason we won the award, its not just Suwannee, Suwannee County Economic Devel opment Director Alvin Jackson said about the pro gram in May.

JULY 18 & 19, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 11A Around the Banks Remembering days gone by in the Suwannee Valley A photo in last weeks edition of the Suwannee Democrat brought back a lot of happy memories. The photo was of the demolition of the old Suwannee Packing Company in Live Oak, Florida, and it rang a bell for me in more ways than one. I remember, not just recall, but re member, specic instances, on many oc casions, of going to Suwannee Packing Company with various family members and friends primarily to purchase their famous sausages. Many times, a holiday gift to a special friend or relative would include Suwannee Packing Company sausages, and, I couldnt even begin to relate to you the number of special fam ily meals that included meat purchased from there. The smiling faces of Mr. Croft, Mrs. Dubose, and so many others who were so much a part of that compa ny for so many years. The passing of the Suwannee Packing Company is the story of so much of ru ral America. Mine will be the last gen eration to remember when everything in this area was purchased at a business owned by people you knew. Folks with whom you went to church, school, and you knew the people. Theres still some of that, but not as much as there was at one time, and thats the result of technology, business and larger chain stores selling everything to a community from soup to nuts at a price less than the owners of home-owned stores could purchase it; same with clothing stores, same with shoe stores, same with just about everything. I can recall when Carvers Grocery in White Springs would deliver grocery orders to those customers in town, and so did Mal lory Tutens Grocery Store in Jasper, Mal lorys. After his ma ternal grandson and my lifetime friend, Kevin Morgan and I were in high school, Mr. Tuten was still delivering groceries and that was ummm well, over 40 years ago now. My word, did I want to take this trip? The world of north central Florida during the 50s, 60s, and up till the early 80s was largely agrarian with many folks making a living from the farms, and the primary cash crop was ue cured tobacco. Like Suwannee Packing Companys demolition, that has changed. Where once you had scores of farmers growing tobacco, now you have a few, and they contract directly with the tobacco companies. No more gov ernment price supports. No more singsong cadence of the tobacco auctioneer who, at the end would often say Sold American, or Sold Reynolds. To hear the staccato of the tobacco auction, and to witness the energy and vitality of it was wonderful; truly a treasured memory. Silenced as the old tobacco warehouses which stand like a monument to an industry now gone, it is a part of what we were, and what we are today too. In my hometown, some of the last vestiges of the individual communi ties closed a couple of years ago with the closing of the community schools. Economics and modern architecture, and streamlined education, and, too, safety for part of the school districts facilities, trumped anything remotely related to community values, retention of allegiances to schools and on we go. It hasnt just begun. It happened for rural communities in the 30s and 40s, when rural schools in communities were closed and consolidated. It happened in the 60s when community high schools were closed, and consolidation occurred. It happened in a part of the state where once there were hundreds and even thousands of working farms and fami lies in this part of the world that had to quit the farm to make a living and either moved away, or procured jobs in town or in another area. It was the way the country was moving and has moved. I am not bemoaning progress, and I am not a dinosaur when it comes to change, not most of the time, but I sure am glad I came along in a time in this part of the world when community truly did mean something, the churches, the schools, the people, and a communi ty identity. Suwannee Packing Company, that photo, a good photo, not exceptional, but a good one, told a story of our area that was much larger and much greater than the nal clearing up of Suwannee Packing Company. To me, it was like watching a movie where you are not ready to see the credits at the end of the movie, and part of you wishes you could go back and watch and live it again, but its gone, and what we are left with are memories and stories. In fact, the right collection of folks could easily write, The Story of Suwannee Packing Com pany: a personal history and recollec tions, The Story of Kayos Pharmacy in Jasper, Florida, The Story of the Big Independent Tobacco Warehouse in Live Oak, Florida, the story of: A Land Remembered, which is the title of a great book about Florida written by the late Patrick Smith. If you havent read it. I suggest you do. He could truly write. Some of us dabble. He was a mar velous writer. To paraphrase the lyrics of a John An derson, Country and Western hit, years ago... North Floridas had a face lift, I guess shes looking better, But I kind of like the old one, I never will forget her. And on we go with the next genera tion who will have memories, and sto ries, but they will be their stories, not my stories, not yours. Not those of us who are approaching 60 from the shady side or older. Suwannee Packing Com pany and all that it implied was a part of Our story.

Another widespread idea was that exercise was actually harmful for people with certain ail ments I cant exercise because I have heart disease. Now, more people than ever, at all ages, are exercising. So, does age-old wisdom prevail, or is exercise important for senior adults? If it is important, how much is enough? First, lets put to rest any thoughts that some people should not exercise. Previous genera tions who did physical labor on the farm and then became inactive at retirement often found that their health rapidly declined. The benets of continued physical activity have been proven again and again. In fact, each ACV member above the age of 60 must get a physicians OK before exercising at Copeland Community Center, and I have never received a doctors note forbidding someone from exercising. Doctors frequently give guidelines, but they always encourage activity. Exercise literally improves everything strength, endurance, exibility, balance, mental clarity and more. Many people dont realize that there is a direct connec tion between strength and balance. Those who exercise tend to have faster reexes, which aid in driving safely and catching yourself from falling. Exercise can prevent disease or slow its progression. People who have kept up a regular exercise routine recover faster from surgery. So, how can you know what exercise is best for you and how much is enough? There are right and wrong ways to go about exercis ing at any age and with any health condition. First, talk to your physician. He will be able to best advise you on avoiding certain exercises that could be harmful with your specic health conditions. He may advise you to see a physical therapist or exercise physiologist, who can show you which exercises to do, how to do them properly, and explain how each exercise will benet you. (Helping you lift your foot into the car, helping you rise from a chair, etc.) What is the best exercise for senior adults? The one that they will do! You should nd something that you enjoy. If you are bored, its much harder to stick with it. Other than that, the best all-around exercise for seniors is aquat ics. Exercising in water is safer because your body weight is supported. Every movement is met with consistent resistance, and you can move in all directions. A heated Exercise for senior adults: Unnecessary hazard or fountain of youth? pool (89 degrees) is best because it encourages exibility, preventing muscle strain, and is particularly benecial for arthritis sufferers. Here at ACV, we have a lift that allows people with limited mobility access to the indoor heated pool. Some who have used walkers for years have experi enced improved mobility after spending time in our pool. For senior adults, I believe the goal should be function al tness, in order to feel your best and maintain your in dependence. When beginning a new physical activity, the key is to start slowly and gradually build up. I start older adults on the stationary bike for two minutes and then increase it each session. Some people think two minutes is a waste of time and want to do more, but Im trying to prevent muscle soreness the next day. Two minutes of exercise is better than none at all. I tell people that they have the rest of their life to increase. Its good to be consistent in how often you exercise; at least three days a week is best. Once you have established a routine, set a minimum workout that you will do each session, (possibly going back to two minutes on the bike) even when you dont feel like it. Many times, people dont exercise at all on days they dont feel up to par, then it becomes hard to get back to it when they are feel ing good. As long as you arent actually ill, it is good to do some exercise. Often people report that they feel better after a small amount of activity. Listen to your body. It will tell you if you are doing too much. Muscle fatigue is normal, but if you experience stabbing pain, joint pain, shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness, or confusion, stop exercising immediately and seek medical attention. Ask advice on how to begin exer cising safely again. I see the impact that consistent exercise has on senior adults every day. Ive seen people with Parkinsons dis ease slow its progression. Several of our members have been told by their doctors that their exercise routine has prevented a heart attack or stroke. The benets of physi cal activity cannot be overstated. Even though every exer cise is not right for everybody, everybody at any age can benet from exercise. David Burch has been the Director of Copeland Com munity Center, Advent Christian Villages wellness and tness center, since 2001. He is an exercise physiologist and received his degree from the University of Florida. During his training, he enjoyed working with the Gator athletes, but he also discovered his love for senior adults. David teaches exercise classes and develops customized exercise programs for each CCC member.

Lafayette 12U set for Southeast Regional michael.jones@ganews.com BRANFORD When Ric Whittington accepted the position as head football coach at Hamilton County in March, he spoke about the importance of establishing the weight room right away. But with the grind of being in the weight room all summer, Whitting ton is also trying to give his team a chance to have fun while compet ing against other teams. Hamilton County has been doing that this summer with 7-on-7 workouts. The Trojans most recent 7v7 was a three-team workout with Bell and Branford on July 10. The most intricate part of our offseason program is the weight room, but its fun to come out here and throw the ball around, Whit tington said. I think the best part is the boys get to have fun. Throwing for HCHS was quarter back Malachi Graham, who com pleted 17 of 30 passes. Graham, a rising freshman, connected with seven different receivers. Melvin Brown and Tyler Whetstone were the main targets, combining for nine receptions. On defense, Aderias Ealy picked off one pass while Keyvon Webb had two interceptions. nr For Whittington, it was a good showing, and another positive step as the regular season gets closer. I said it before the spring game, our summer is going to dictate how our fall is, Whittington said. Weve gotten better, but theres denitely more room to get better. Discipline and work ethic is what this program is about. Were taking the steps we need to in that direction. Were going to continue to progress and hopefully surprise some people really soon. rttrrnbnnb SEE BASEBALL, PAGE 2B SEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 2B SEE LAFAYETTE, PAGE 2B

JULY 18 & 19, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 2B Dont let sunburn derail summer fun Many people nd it impossible to think about summer without conjuring visions of spending endless hours outdoors from morning until evening, whether beachside, on the open water or even oating in a backyard pool. Although a certain measure of sun exposure is required for some natural functions of the body, its well documented that too much time in the sun can be hazardous to ones health. ats why summer frolickers need to exercise considerable caution each time they step outside. Taking sunburn for granted can be a big mistake. Many people wouldnt risk burns from a hot stove or open re, but they wont think twice about being unprotected under the very hot rays of the sun. e Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says more than one-third of adults and nearly 70 percent of children admit to suering from sunburn within the past year. Depending on the intensity of the sun and the amount of time spent outside, sunburn can be a rstor second-degree burn. In rst-degree burns, damage aects the topmost layer of skin. However, sunburn can even aect deeper layers and cause blistering in addition to redness and pain. Sunburn also can cause some irreparable damage that goes unseen. According to WebMD, ultraviolet light from the sun can alter DNA, prematurely aging skin or even contributing to skin cancers. It can take years before symptoms become noticeable. erefore, it is best for people of all ages to exercise caution when spending time in the sun. Sunburn is one of the most easily prevented summertime ailments. Its also important to note that sunburns are not just limited to the hot weather or when it is sunny outside. Ultraviolet damage can occur at any time of the year, and also from articial UV sources, such as tanning beds. Preventing sunburn is simple. strongest between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., so schedule outdoor activities for other times of day.

There were 11 boys and five coaches from the small town of Mayo who were able to achieve exactly what they set their minds to. They started the season in February with 19 kids for regular-season play and selected 11 of those for the All-Star team. All-Star season began with a preseason tourna ment weekend in Palatka in May. The boys expe rienced their first tourna ment as a team and came out champions against eight other teams from across the region. In June, Lafayette came in second in the District 6 Tournament held in Live Oak. The runner-up finish gave them them the opportuni ty to advance to the 10U Babe Ruth State Tourna ment in Tallahassee. Two weeks after the district tournament, the boys traveled to Fort White to compete in the Babe Ruth Small League State Tournament. This tournament is for Babe Ruth Leagues across the state that have 43 or fewer players in each age division. There is al ways huge participation in this tournament, with 44 teams competing this year across three age di visions. The Lafayette team competed against 15 other 10U teams, beating out Marietta Bullsbay from Jacksonville to become the undefeat ed Small League State Champs. This is backto-back Small League State championship wins in the 10U division for Lafayette. The team traveled to Levy Park in Tallahassee for the Babe Ruth State Tournament from July 6-10 and placed fifth overall. They competed against 10 other teams from northern Florida, extending from Pensaco la to Jacksonville and as far south South Daytona. They didnt come out on top in this tourna ment, but played very well, competing with the big leagues in Tallahas see. The dedication from the players, coaches and parents excelled as they traveled to each of these tournaments throughout the summer. They put in the hours and hard work all season long, and it paid off. Setting these goals, working hard, and reaching them make the accomplishments, cham pionships and experience so much sweeter. It has been a great baseball season for the boys of Mayo. Continued From Page 1B Baseball were mixing in some quick-hitting passes with intermediate routes much like they did last season. Thats what made La fayettes 7-on-7 workout at Suwannee on July 11 so benecial. With a little more than one month be fore the start of the regular season, Lafayette was able to create game situations while competing in shorts during the dog days of summer. With the exception of running the football, that couldnt have been more game-like for us, said Beach, Lafayettes offen sive coordinator. Against a great team and great athletes, our guys got to show a little bit. We were working on stuff that wed actually work in games; it enabled us to get better. Instead of a regular 7-on7 where all plays are run from the same spot on the eld, both teams started drives at their own 30-yard line. They were given eight plays advancing the ball with each completion to go 70 yards and reach the end zone. LHS quarterback Jaxson Beach went 27-46 over the course of six possessions. Beach connected with Adam Perry on every drive as Perry nished with a team-best 10 receptions. Richy James caught nine passes while Ben Massey had four grabs, including a long touchdown. Continued From Page 1B Football Lafayette is one of seven teams competing in the double-elimination tournament. There are three Florida teams, two North Carolina teams and one team each from Vir ginia and Tennessee. Lafayette plays its first game on Wednesday at 1 p.m. against Pioneer, Virginia. The championship game is scheduled for Saturday. Continued From Page 1B Lafayette tbf rffn
