Gamble, the District 3 commis sioner and the chairman of the Board of County Commission ers, admitted at Tuesday nights county board meeting, that the road is ugly. But as much as he doesnt like it, Gamble also isnt sure there is much more the county can BOCC calls for study of Coliseum jamie.wachter@gaflnews.com LIVE OAK Following a state mandate, the Suwannee County Board of County Commissioners approved an agree ment with the Suwannee County School Board to continue utilizing school facilities as storm shelters Tuesday night. However, the board also called for a study to be performed on the Suwannee County Coliseum to deter mine its ability to also be utilized. The agreement comes after the Federal Emergency Manage ment Agency (FEMA) required counties to pay school boards for the use of schools as storm shelters in the case of emergencies, such as when an estimated 1,700 evacuees took refuge in the schools during Hurricane Irma last fall. The BOCC would then seek reimburse ment from FEMA. Previously, FEMA re imbursed the schools for the schools being used as shelters. Thats going to be a significant change, County Administrator Randy Harris said. Were going to have to throw a couple ex tra car washes and bake sales to make sure we have adequate funding for that reim bursement. Were going to be waiting. The reality is were going to be waiting once this is in place. Members of the board as well as a resident were concerned with the continued utiliza tion of the schools as storm shelters, particularly as a pet-friendly shelter. Rather, their pref erence would be to use the Coliseum as a pet-friendly shelter. But according to Harris, the Coliseum isnt up to hurricane codes. The school has to do a lot of cleanup, Commissioner Larry Sessions said. I mean a lot of sanitizing because theres kids in there that go to school that have allergies. Theres lots of problems with having ani mals in schools. Resident Tim Alcorn agreed. Thats my biggest fear is we put animals in these buildings and that pet dander get in the ventilation system and you cant get it out, he said, admitting he has two grand children that are highly allergic to cats.

Purvis, who has served as a team chaplain at FSU for 30 years helping coaches Bobby Bowden, Jimbo Fisher and now Willie Taggart with the football team as well as Mike Martin in baseball, was a youth minister previous ly as well. Purvis message Monday focused on What is a Chris tian? Suwannee County resident and gospel singer Eric Swart sang during the event as well.

The next event is scheduled for Aug. 20 at 7 p.m. and will feature Seminole County Sheriffs Ofce chaplain Gene Gregory. Gregory spoke at the funeral for the slain Gilchrist County ofcers this spring. rrrrfb tfffrfbff rffftfrfffrfr rbftfrrrffrrrffn nffrnrnrnrnffff Many people who grow up or move into Suwannee County do not realize that in 1905, Live Oak was one of the largest cities in the state. Ive mentioned it in passing in previous articles, but its still hard to believe. Granted, Floridas population was nowhere near what it is today, and in re ality, Live Oak has basically as many people as it did in 1905. Nevertheless, its fun to nd ad ditional records documenting our brief fame. The following comes from a September, 1906 copy of the Live Oak Daily Democrat, a daily version of the Suwannee Democrat that ran for a few years. It also quotes liber ally from the Miami Me tropolis: Miami and Dade coun ty have their long delayed census at last and the result shows that the Democrat was too generous in conceding precedence to that city over Live Oak in the matter of population. Our 7,200 gives us fth place in the procession, with only Jacksonville, Pensacola, Tampa and Key West ahead of us. Speaking of the Dade county cen sus, the Miami Metropolis says: The showing, however, in population, especially, is not grat ifying and falls short of what was expected. The entire county, ac cording to the census, contained in 1905 but a few more than 12,000 persons. Miami has been conceded fth place among Flori da cities, which meant that it had a population of more than 7,200, but now comes the ofcial count placing the total number of per sons in the tenth precinct in which it is located at but a little more than 6,000 persons. So it is with all other places, every one falling short of what had been expected. At least one thousand or more of the six thousand persons credited to the precinct reside outside the corporate limits of the city. This reduces Miamis population to the neighborhood of ve thousand. Certainly it has more residents that that. But we will have to make the best of the situation. Funny when you realize the latest population gures for Live Oak and Miami: 6,850 and 463,347 (5.56 million if you in clude the urban area) respective ly! More history next week.

Patricia Herring, the billing clerk for the City of Jasper, alleges that she is being falsely accused of wrongdoing. According to Herrings complaint, written on June 26, the issue stems from questions pertaining to zon ing. Herring alleges that Hightower told Herring to mind her own business via a message from Herrings su pervisor, the Chief Financial Ofcer Margaret Harper. The complaint states that Hightower allegedly accused Herring of telling her to just sign a zoning application and also accused Herring of tell ing Councilman LaBareld Bryant to go to her ofce. The complaint states If things are calm and running smoothly, Jennifer is not happy. Id be scared to come to work with some of the stuff thats going on, Vice Mayor Gerald Lewis said. The city currently is hav ing an investigation conduct ed on Hightowers complaint against the former city man ager and city attorney Rhett Bullard advised the council to conduct another into the newest allegations. If you have an allegation of hostile work environment from an employee, you should have it investigated, Bullard said. That was my position before. It doesnt change based on the people involved. Do we really need to investigate every little thing, Councilman William Mitch ell asked. If we are having people tell people get out of my business at work, when it is not your business, then we should be able to handle that on our own and not get an outside investigation ev ery time. He added Hightowers al legation involved a weapon, which he felt warranted the investigation. If we have people that cant work together, you either need to learn to grow up and work with each other or you need to go home, Mitchell said. Herring asked the board what, if anything were they going to do with her com plaint. This is not a joke, Her ring said. This is reality. Mitchell asked Hightower if the allegations were accu rate? I dont agree with it, Hightower said. Bullard warned the council that by asking the question, they were getting into the investigative portion of the complaint. He said the council should follow the same protocol as before. So you wouldnt rec ommend ring anybody tonight, Lewis asked. I dont know why you would, Bullard replied. The council agreed to allow Allen Norton & Blue, PA to investigate. That rm is already investigating the rst complaint. Bryant asked if Hightower and Herring would be able to work together since they were on separate sides of the ofce. Mitchell suggested mak ing the city clerk position a part-time position since Hightower was able to get all the work done when she was working alternate days fol lowing her allegation against Williams. Bullard informed the council it was in their best interest to not adversely affect an employees pay or hours during an investiga tion. Herring and Hightower are alternating work days until the investigation is complete. fff ffrf rbnn rnfrfr rffn fbf fr Grifn plans to sue White Springs mayor, vice mayor tb jessie.box@ganews.com WHITE SPRINGS White Springs citizen Joe Grifn informed the White Springs Town Council of his intent to sue the town again at the July 10 meeting. Since moving to White Springs in 1999, Joe Grifn has led 20 lawsuits against White Springs prior to this suit. Grifn led a complaint on May 23 against Vice Mayor Tonja Brown. The complaint states Brown became a rogue council member after she directed the former code enforcement ofcer to cite a mobile home park for violations. The complaint asks how this request from Brown was different from council mem ber Helen Miller seeking support for her projects. The council voted in June 2017 to declare Millers seat forfeited after Town Manag er Stacy Tebo called Miller a rogue councilwoman at the May 2017 meeting for not going through the town manager to purchase supplies and equipment. The council reafrmed its previous vote in October 2017 to declare Millers seat forfeited. I am here tonight to fulll my obligations underneath the Town Charter Section 10.04, which says that I must give you 30 days notice prior to legal action, Grifn said. The lawsuit would be against Mayor Spencer Lof ton and Brown. Grifn said Loftons investigation into the com plaint was in violation of the Sunshine Laws. The preliminary suit alleges Lofton and Brown discussed the complaint in private and Lofton made a personal decision to void the complaint. Grifn asked that the in vestigation into his complaint be redone according to Sun shine Laws. I will see you in August so you can decide whether you want to go to court, Grifn said. rfrntbrr rfntbb bb nrbbb nffr bbrfbb bbbbb rtbrbrbb brfb btbbbt b tbnbbbf bbff fbbbbf bbbbn nb bnf bbb rfb b nbfb tbff frrr btbfbr bbb br bnbfnb rb

It was a useful, because illuminating, event: Now we shall see how many Republicans retain a capaci ty for embarrassment. Jeane Kirkpatrick, a Democrat closely associated with such Dem ocratic national security stalwarts as Sen. Henry Jackson and former Sen. and former Vice President Hubert Humphrey, was Ronald Reagans ambassador to the United Nations. In her speech to the 1984 Republican National Convention in Dallas, she explained her dis affection from her party: They always blame Amer ica rst. In Helsinki, the president who bandies the phrase America rst put himself rst, as always, and America last, behind Vladimir Putins regime. Because the Democrats had just held their conven tion in San Francisco, Kirkpatrick branded the blame America rst cohort as San Francisco Democrats. Thirty-four years on, how numerous are the Helsinki Republicans? What, precisely, did Donald Trump say about the diametrically opposed statements concerning Rus sia and the 2016 U.S. elections by U.S. intelligence agencies (and the Senate Intelligence Committee) and by Putin concerning Russia and the 2016 U.S. elec tions? Precision is not part of Trumps repertoire: He speaks English as though it is a second language that he learned from someone who learned English last week. So, it is usually difcult to sift meanings from Trumps word salads. But in Helsinki he was, for him, crystal clear about feeling no allegiance to the intelli gence institutions that work at his direction and under leaders he chose. Speaking of Republicans incapable of blushing those with the peculiar strength that comes from being incapable of embarrassment consider South Caroli na Sen. Lindsey Graham, who for years enjoyed deriv ative gravitas from his association with John McCain. Graham tweeted about Helsinki: Missed opportunity by President Trump to rmly hold Russia accountable for 2016 meddling and deliver a strong warning re garding future elections. A missed opportunity by a man who does not acknowledge the meddling? Contrast Grahams mush with this from McCain, still vinegary: Todays press conference in Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory. Or this from Ar izonas other senator, Jeff Flake: I never thought I would see the day when our American president would stand on the stage with the Russian President and place blame on the United States for Russian ag gression. Blame America only. Secretary of Defense James Mattis, White House chief of staff John Kelly, Director of National Intel ligence Dan Coats and others might believe that they must stay in their positions lest there be no adult su pervision of the Oval playpen. This is a serious worry, but so is this: Can those people do their jobs for some one who has neither respect nor loyalty for them? Like the purloined letter in Edgar Allan Poes short story with that title, collusion with Russia is hiding in plain sight. We shall learn from Robert Muellers investigation whether in 2016 there was collusion with Russia by members of the Trump campaign. The world, however, saw in Helsinki something more grave ongoing collusion between Trump, now in power, and Russia. The collusion is in what Trump says (refusing to back Americas intelligence agen cies) and in what evidently went unsaid (such as: You ought to stop disrupting Ukraine, downing civilian airliners, attempting to assassinate people abroad using poisons, and so on, and on). Americans elected a president who this is a safe surmise knew that he had more to fear from making his tax returns public than from keeping them secret. The most innocent inference is that for decades he has depended on an American weakness, suscep tibility to the tacky charisma of wealth, which would evaporate when his tax returns revealed that he has always lied about his wealth, too. A more ominous explanation might be that his redundantly demonstrat ed incompetence as a businessman tumbled him into unsavory nancial dependencies on Russians. A still more sinister explanation might be that the Russians have something else, something worse to keep him compliant. The explanation is in doubt; what needs to be ex plained his compliance is not. Granted, Trump has a weak mans banal fascination with strong men whose disdain for him is evidently unimaginable to him. And, yes, he only perfunctorily pretends to have priorities beyond personal aggrandizement. But just as astronomers inferred, from anomalies in the orbits of the planet Uranus, the existence of Neptune before actually seeing it, Mueller might infer, and then nd, still-hidden sources of the behavior of this sad, embar rassing wreck of a man.

Perhaps the President sees political meddling as part of a game. We the people understand that the 2016 interfer ence in our election process was part of the larger rene ment of Hacking technique, which goes on constantly, by foreign governments, individuals and by organized crime; not just Russia. The result of these Cybergames, will one ne day see the electric grid shut down, bank accounts will evaporate, digital communication will cease. We will be deaf, blind, isolated and broke.

No Objections will be misrepresent ed in campaign ads as Favorable. On Wednesday the Governor of Florida was in Suwannee county at the Coliseum for a meet and greet session. How often does the Govenor visit Live Oak? Why no mention or pictures in the local paper? Democrat may answer my foolish question! Editors Note: Gov. Rick Scotts visit was covered on the front page of last Fridays edition. Holy cow. Is the rave from Scott Pruitt a joke? Was that letter copied from another newspaper? He says that providence brought him to the presidents service. The only service he showed to the president or to the citizens of this country was to service himself and his family. An outright disgust to the United States as Envi ronmental Protection Agencys di rector. This man was such a liar and a thief that he didnt even try and hide it. I guess that writer thought that Pruitt resigned to spend more time with his family. If Suwannee County has a pav ing contractor that does work that doesnt last a year, where we pay good money and grass grows back through the asphalt, maybe the coun ty commissioners need to start look ing for a new paving contractor? Editors note: Per Florida Stat utes, counties and municipalities are required to competitively bid construction projects, including road improvements, and award the proj ects to the lowest qualied bidder. To the person that returned my billfold on the 7th in Walmart, a sincere thank you. May God really bless you for your honesty. Why do our ve commissioners continue to approve bids for the company mentioned in your Friday article to continue working for Su wannee County? Im sure the tax payers paid a lot of money to have that road paved only to see grass growing through after one year. My driveway was paved over 13 years ago and its still in good shape with no grass growing through it. Regis tered voters, please keep an eye on any commissioner that supports this paving company. Editors note: Per Florida Stat utes, counties and municipalities are required to competitively bid con struction projects, including road improvements, and award the proj ects to the lowest qualied bidder. Concerning the conversation the County Commissioners had regard ing animals being housed inside the schools while being used as shelters, I submit that perhaps the School Boards new administration building be built with this need in mind. I understand that children have al lergies and also have the potential to encounter feces on the outdoor surfaces that could be detrimental to their health. Therefore, the newest building should designed to accom modate this need so the children they are sworn to protect are not at risk. The administration staff should assume that health risk. Continued From Page 6A From Page One Rant & Rave do with the problematic road-widening project. I dont know that well ever be happy with it, Gamble said. Im not going to lie to you about it, Im not. But I think we probably got as much as were going to get out of it. From what theyve done and the corrections theyve made, its still ugly. This runs right through the heart of my district. There is nobody more sick about it than me, I can tell you. Ugly or not, Gamble and the board approved paying Anderson Columbia Co. for the work associated with the widening of that road at Tuesdays meeting by a 3-2 vote. Don Hale and Larry Sessions voted against releasing the pay ment of $308,039.96 to Anderson Columbia for the work. However, the board did hold back a payment of $173,481.43 the retain age amount for the entire repaving and widening project on the road, which also included 225th Road. The road, which is in District 3, was repaved late last year. After an 18-inch expansion was added to both sides of the road, it didnt take long this spring for problems to arise. Gamble said in a few spots, the road slid off the base. In others, grass was sprouting through the mid dle of the asphalt. The not pretty part I can deal with, Gamble said. I didnt like the fact that I could have baled hay off the asphalt. That parts the problem. There were places you couldnt see asphalt for the grass. Sessions added: We mow the sides of the road, not the road. Once county ofcials agged those problem ar eas, Anderson Columbia returned and repaired the issues. Gamble said borings tak en by Anderson Columbia as well as North Florida Professional Services, on behalf of the county, showed that the project was done to the specications of the contract. The Florida Department of Transportation, which is funding the project, gave its nal approval on the project Monday. With approval from DOT and the countys en gineers, Gamble and James Pitman, with North Florida Professional Services, said there isnt much left for the county to do. I think youd be in for a big ght to get more, Pitman said. Gamble added: Our only choice is to not make the payment and go to court over it. Or pay it. Thats the two choices. According to County At torney Jimmy Prevatt, the work is fully guaranteed for a year for any problems that arise. After that, any latent defects would be covered for ve years. Still, the board decided to hold the retainage until the next meeting to see if there was anything else they could do to alleviate some of the concerns. As much as theyve got going on, I dont look for a whole lot of charity at this point, Pitman advised. Continued From Page 1A BOCC Sherman on safety tips for riding the bike. Sherman also spent time helping McLeod learn how to ride without training wheels making sure she didnt fall which she did by herself for a few moments in the RIV EROAK parking lot, which had been turned into a bike challenge course for the event. Earlier Wednesday, Sherman and those helping from DOH-Suwannee and LOPD, taught residents from the Florida Sheriffs Boys Ranch safety tips as well, including how to han dle intersections and being on the lookout for cars while riding on the course. Kerry Waldron, the health administrator at DOH-Suwannee, said the event was part of the departments Community Health Improvement Plan. We want to decrease unintentional injuries, Waldron said. The more kids that we can get with helmets, that we can teach them safety how to deal with trafc, how to cross streets properly then were reducing their risk of getting injured. This is all risk reduc tion. Helping meet that goal was Sherman, who with Well Florida and the Flori da Safe Routes to School, travels to 11 counties in North Central Florida providing the trainings. Sherman frequents the schools within the region and also does events like Wednesday morning. Its a needed training Sherman said, noting that Florida leads the country in bicycle and pedestrian incidences as well as fatal ities. Were trying to lower that, he said. Teach prop er riding skills, why we need to wear helmets. And we provide helmets too. Waldron said DOH-Su wannee hopes to host another bike safety event this fall. The department is also looking into doing a similar event for swim ming/water safety at one of the springs. Were surrounded by water, Waldron said, adding that the Suwan nee Parks & Recreation Department offers swim lessons during the sum mer, but are limited to how many classes they can provide. Weve got not only the rivers, but weve also got lakes. So what can we do to make people more aware of how to re spect the water and also be safe on the water. Continued From Page 1A Bike to be responsible because we sat here and tried to save a few dollars on a building for some ani mals. Sessions mentioned possibly having the study done to see whether the building could meet the wind codes. How far off are we? Sessions asked about the Coliseum. Is it because of its age? Is it because of its structural Its the structure, Harris replied. The high walls. It wasnt engi neered for the hurricane codes. I think this topic deserves a whole lot of conversation to see if we can come up with some options. But that particu lar building wont be one because of those codes. Chairman Ricky Gam ble asked if an official study was ever conducted on the building, noting that he would prefer des ignating it as a pet-friend ly shelter instead of a school. Alcorn also urged the board to conduct that study on the Coliseum. I think it will pass an engineering study the way that thing is built, he said. It may not. It has withstood ev erything that Mother Nature has slung at it. Id be surprised if it did not pass. Budget Hearings Set Earlier in Tuesdays meeting, the board set the date and time for both the tentative and final budget hearings. The tentative hearing will be held Thursday, Sept. 6, at 5:30 p.m. at the Judicial Annex. The final hearing will be held Tuesday, Sept. 18, at 5:30 p.m. at the Ju dicial Annex. The boards regular monthly meeting will follow that final hearing. Opioid litigation contract The board also agreed in the meeting to a contract with Avera & Smith, a law firm out of Gainesville, as special counsel to pursue opioid litigation. The board gave County Attorney Jimmy Prevatt the go-ahead in May to negotiate a con tract with the law firm to pursue litigation to recoup funds for dealing with the crisis locally. While most of the law suits against the drug manufacturers have been filed in federal court, the board followed Pre vatts advice in May to take action on a more local level. The damages the county is seeking to recoup are the costs to provide EMS services and transportation to area hospitals and even po tential future education against the dangers of opioid abuse. Prior to the boards vote on approving the contract Tuesday, Prevatt advised adding language that specifically states the county is not responsi ble for any costs during the litigation should no damages be recovered, nor would the county be responsible for any costs greater than the amount of damages recovered. The board approved the contract with that lan guage added. Continued From Page 1A Coliseum rfnt bffrfb fft

FRIDAY, JULY 20, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 3B but this is top-notch com petition here. Suwannee drew Valdosta and Upson-Lee in one of the team sessions without pads, alternating reps on offense with each opponent against the team on defense before taking its turn on defense against the Wild cats and Knights. Rising junior quarter back Tyree Taylor demon strated a strong feel for the pocket as he navigated around defenders and found receivers under neath. During the next period, Suwannee strapped on the pads for a similar session against Crisp County and Tift County. Quickly alternating against, at times, drasti cally different offenses and defenses provided a challenge unique to larger camps. It forces you to coach on the run, Hall said. As a player, its so many repetitions, and youre see ing two different offenses back-to-back for seven straight minutes. It forc es you to get out of your comfort zone and really think and react. It is really good work, and itll denitely be something we come back and do. Continued From Page 1B Bulldogs r rfrntb nf Community Calendar meets monthly (September through June) in Lake City.
