According to Suwannee County Sheriff Sam St. John, the local scare stemmed from a social media message about a BHS in Louisiana and that student had previously been ar rested for that post. But it still caused a stir local ly Friday. Facebook and social media can be your friend or it can be a nightmare and lately its been a nightmare, St. John said. But it can help to get the message out. The nightmare it caused Friday started when a student at Suwannee High School texted his girlfriend at Branford High about a social media post that said there was going to be a shooting at BHS and to be care ful, according to the Suwannee County Sheriffs Ofce. The BHS student then in formed the School Resource Ofcer, Deputy Brad Mincks. Mincks and the BHS adminis tration then put the school into lockdown out of caution and ad ditional deputies were deployed to the school, according to the SCSO. Mincks also contacted the SRO at Suwannee High, Deputy Zach Clark, who was shown the original social media post by the Suwannee student, SCSO Social media causes scare at BHS said. According to the SCSO, that post appeared to reference a school in Bradford County, Florida, and Clark contacted the Bradford County Sheriffs Ofce, which was aware of the post but also knew it was an old post and was actually in refer ence to a Louisiana school. The lockdown at Branford lasted around 20-30 minutes, the SCSO said, adding that jamie.wachter@ganews.com LIVE OAK Skip Johns has performed all across the country, including at the Grand Ole Opry.

This is a topic that may not be well received but Im going to write about it anyway. A few weeks ago around the time school was getting ready to go back in session, I watched a video was supposed to be funny that really hit a sore spot with me. It was demonstrating the horrors parents were inicting on their children as they took the electronics away from their kids. Told them that their three months of playing videos games were over and they now have a bedtime. Literally when mom or dad would take away the game controller or iPad, the kids would have a major meltdown. Not only were the temper tantrums insane, the kids were portrayed as sitting in one spot all day surrounded by half-eaten junk food. The worst part? This is closer to the truth than not. In contrast also that same week on a nightly news program, was a report on Sat urday morning cartoons. Remember how special Saturday morning cartoons were after a week of school and homework? Saturday mornings were geared toward kids with one special morning of cartoons. From Bugs Bunny to Speed Racer, you would watch cartoons for a few hours. My mom would let us four kids eat a bowl of cereal in front of the TV the ONLY time we were allowed to do so. The rest of the time, we were at the kitchen table. We would decide what cartoon to watch from the whopping three channels we had to choose from. After an hour or so, what would happen? Get up. Get your butt into your play clothes and get outside and play. Im not saying the old days were better but kids were denitely more active. Yes, times have drastically changed and many times either parents are working or kids are being raised in a single-parent home. I get it. I was a working mom too. BUT once I picked my kids up from after school care, they would play out side until dinner time. And yes. I raised my kids in Florida and it was just as hot then as it is now. They played outside. Kids deserve time to play outdoors. Run around. Ride a bike. Get a little dirty. Thats what being a kid is all about. When we are older, its not so easy to play a game of tag or jump in a mud puddle. Af ter all, we know who has to clean up the mess dont we? How about as parents or grandparents, we join the kids, go outside and simply play. Teach kids simple games like jump rope, hop scotch, kick ball or kill the carri er that we played when we were kids. Yes, technology has brought families to a completely different world than the one we lived in even a short 10 years ago. But we dont have to forget what its like to turn the TV off or put the game controller down, open the door, go outside and play. Simply play. Why not give it a try? Have a wonderful week!

Since we are all prone to try this, you have likely discovered that trying to change somebody is a lot like spitting in the wind; it doesnt work, and it can get really messy! In fact, we are even limited in our own ability to produce lasting change in ourselves, so why on earth do we ever think we can change some one else? The boundary of power makes clear what we have power over and where we have no power. It is critical for us to understand that we have no power over the attitudes and actions of other people. No matter how much we love them, we cannot make them more mature or responsible. We also cannot change another persons character or stop their bad habits, no matter how obvious it is to us that they need to. What we do have is the power to inuence others. Websters dictionary de nes inuence as power of producing an effect without force or a direct command. Think about some things that we often do to try and get someone to change: repeat ourselves over and over (better known as nagging), criti cize, scream and yell, bully, threaten, withdraw and give the silent treatment. Now think about those who inuence you. Would someone doing these things make you want to listen and cooperate? Me neither. Instead, we are more likely to respond to some one who is not trying to x us even if we know they dont approve of our choices or behavior. Instead we can draw a boundary by saying something like, Your irresponsible behav ior (be specic) is causing problems in our relation ship. Is there some way I can help you? I love you, but if this be havior continues our relationship will suffer (explain how). It is your choice. This allows the offender to be aware of the problem and to understand the conse quences if they continue their irresponsible behavior. This may mean not being included certain activities or a distancing in the relation ship. It also gives the free dom to choose to change the behavior with the bene t of being reconnected to the relationship. The problem is that we spend so much time and ef fort trying to change some one with ways that hurt our inuence with them, that we actually lose what we did have power over to start with. The most important part of the boundary of power is gaining wisdom, so that we dont spend time and energy where we have no power and keep our inu ence where we do. The very familiar Serenity Prayer offers a great explanation: God, grant me the serenity (calm and without worry, stress or disturbance) to accept the things I cannot change (have no power over), the courage (the ability to face danger, difculty, uncertainty, or pain without being overcome by fear or being detoured from a chosen course of action) to change the things I can (that I do have power over), and the wisdom to know the difference. The Bible tells us in James 1:5 that If anyone lacks wisdom, they should ask God, who gives gener ously to all without nding fault, and it will be given to him. This means that we can bring these situations to God and ask the question: Do I have power to change something in this situation, and if I do, where? When we do, He will generously give us wisdom without blaming and nding fault. Why would God do this? He wants us to have strong, healthy relationships. Be cause our hearts matter.

This was a great week for me. I got to see two outdoor concerts, one in Orlando and one right here in Suwan nee County. The two concerts could not have been any more different. This past Wednesday, I got to see Jay-Z and Beyonc perform live. It was my rst time seeing either of these artists on stage. Their On The Road II tour was an incredible sight to behold. Besides hearing Jay-Z rap some of his most famous hits and Beyonc singing her chart toppers, you got to see an incredible group of dancers perform and an extremely talented group of musicians play. Camping Word Stadium was packed for the event and one of the end zones was converted into the largest screen ever. On the screens they showed closeups of the performers so that those in the upper reaches of the upper level could actually see what was going on onstage. The video screen was several stories tall and at times you could see groups of musicians and dancers perform ing on the different levels behind the screens. Jay-Z and Beyonc took an elevator that was behind the screen area to take the stage before some of their numbers. On either side of the main stage there were walkways that extended nearly the entire length of the football eld. On those walkways there were conveyor belts to whisk the sing ers and dancers to and fro. At one point in the concert, a large part of the main stage was elevated and traveled between the two walkways to get the stars of the show closer to those who were standing in the back portion of the eld. From time to time, reworks and ames would shoot from either side of the stage and from above the tall screen apparatus. It was one of the most impressive displays I have ever seen. This past Saturday, I was invited to a private party where Blind Luck was performing. There was really good food and plenty of parking. If you wanted to feel closer to the performers, you could walk right up to the front of the small stage they were playing from. Blind Luck is composed of Curt Johnson, Chad Herring, Gene Reddish and Mike Bryan. They played mainly rock and blues with some country mixed in from time to time. I really enjoyed their renditions of Two Tickets to Par adise, Wicked Game and Sultans of Swing. They also played songs by the Steve Miller Band, The Allman Brothers and Bryan Adams. I had a great time. The two concerts truly were as different as night and day. One cost quite a bit for the tickets, and you had to pay to park anywhere in the same zip code as the concert. The other was free, and did not require sitting in any trafc. I am not sure if it my age or the fact that I now feel like Suwannee County is home, but I had more fun watching Blind Luck than I did watching Jay-Z and Be yonc.

Opinion A PAGE 6 rfrfnftrbfbf ftfrrbfbf As different as night and day South Africa has been thrown into the news because of President Donald Trumps recent tweet that he instruct ed his secretary of state to closely study alleged land seizures from white farmers in South Africa. Earlier this year, a land conscation motion was brought by radical Marx ist opposition leader Julius Malema, and it passed South Africas Parlia ment by a 241-83 vote. Malema has had a long-standing commitment to land conscation without compensa tion. In 2016, he told his supporters he was not calling for the slaughter of white people at least for now (https:// tinyurl.com/y7mfmhco). The land-grabbing sentiment is also expressed by Lindsay Maasdorp, national spokesman for Black First Land First, a group that condones land sei zures in South Africa. He says, We are going to take back the land, and well do it by any means necessary. The land conscation policy was a key factor in the platform of the new president, Cyril Ramaphosa. I have visited South Africa several times, in 1979, 1980 and 1992. My three-month 1980 visit included lectures at nearly all South African universities. The 1992 return visit, two years after apartheid ended and two years before demo cratic elections, included lectures on my book South Afri cas War Against Capitalism. During each visit, my coun sel to South Africans, particularly black South Africans, was that the major task before them was not only ridding the na tion of apartheid but deciding what was going to replace it. Thats an important question. William Hutt, the late Uni versity of Cape Town economist who was an anti-apartheid voice within the academic community, wrote in his 1964 book, titled The Economics of the Colour Bar, that one of the supreme tragedies of the human condition is that those who have been the victims of injustices or oppression can often be observed to be inicting not dissimilar injustices upon other races. In 2001, Andrew Kenny wrote an article titled Black People Arent Animals But Thats How Liberals Treat Them. Kenny asked whether South Africa is doomed to follow the rest of Africa into oblivion. Kenny gave a no answer to his question, but he was not very optimistic because of the pattern seen elsewhere in sub-Sa haran Africa. He argued that ordinary Africans were better off under colonialism. Colonial masters never committed anything near the murder and genocide seen under black rule in Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, Nigeria, Mozambique, Somalia and other countries, where millions of blacks have been slaughtered in unspeakable ways, including being hacked to death, boiled in oil, set on re and dismembered. Kenny said that if as many elephants, zebras and lions were as ruthlessly slaughtered, the worlds leftists would be in a tizzy (https://tinyurl.com/ybj4u9fj). Ghanaian economist George Ayittey expressed a similar complaint in his book Africa Betrayed: White rulers in South Africa could be condemned, but not black African leaders guilty of the same political crimes. Moeletsi Mbeki, a brother of former South African President Thabo Mbekis and deputy chairman of the South African Institute of In ternational Affairs, an independent think tank based at the University of the Witwatersrand, said in 2004 that Africa was in a spiral of decline. The average African is poorer than during the age of colonialism, he said (https://tinyurl. com/ycs6l4pb). Zimbabwe, South Africas northern neighbor formerly called Rhodesia, was southern Africas breadbasket. That was prior to the conscation of nearly 6,000 large whiteowned commercial farms during the 1990s. By the turn of the century, Zimbabwe was threatened with mass starvation and was begging for food. Added to that tragedy, Zimba bwe experienced historys second-highest ination rate. It reached 79.6 billion percent in mid-November 2008. (In 1946, Hungary experienced the worlds highest ination rate, 41.9 quadrillion percent.) South Africa leads in mining, food production and critical infrastructure, such as power production and railroading, in southern Africa. But its going the same way as Zimba bwe, spelling disaster for the entire southern part of Africa. Whats needed most right now is for South Africans to adopt some of the principles enunciated by Nelson Mande la, one of which is, You will achieve more in this world through acts of mercy than you will through acts of retribu tion.

Tropical Storm Gordon missed us, instead head ing to the gulf states. Tropical Storm Florence is still developing out in the Atlantic Ocean. And after Hurricane Irma last year we should remember the issues that a major storm can bring if one comes through north central Florida. But even then, the region has felt the impact of numerous hurricanes in the past. The Suwannee River Valley has been a stopping point for those Florida residents making the exodus from their hurricane-hit areas on either coast. High winds, downed trees, torrential rains and power outages have been experienced as hurricanes have made their way north after coming ashore. Now is the time to prepare for the possibility of a hurricane. Hurricane preparedness is an opportunity to pre pare for the worst while hoping for the best. Preparations should start with a basic disaster kit that includes: for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation; able food; NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert and extra batteries for both; plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place; for personal sanitation; charger; insurance policies, identication and bank account records in a waterproof, portable container. And even if Florence heads up the East Coast or loses steam before it gets to the U.S. mainland and no damage is brought to us, its better to be pre pared for the rest of hurricane season as well. Be prepared for hurricane season

SEPTEMBER 5 & 6, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 7A 140601-1 Around the Banks What a difference a day makes What a difference a day makes, Twenty-four little hours, Bought the sun and the owers, Where there used to be rain. The entire pendulum of life can swing hard left or hard right without warning and out of the blue. Now, I am not a political commentator nor do I have any desire, but who would have dreamed a couple of weeks ago that the state of Florida would have the two gubernatorial candidates, Andrew Gillum, Democrat, and Ron DeSantis, Republican, we have now? Who would have dreamed a few weeks ago that the entire focus of the nation over the Labor Day weekend would be on two individuals both of whom added avor and uniqueness to our America, the Queen of Soul, who, despite moving on to her Heavenly Home will always reign in that capacity, the late Great Aretha Franklin, and a man who, at one time walked the streets of Suwannee County campaigning, the late Senator John McCain? Who would have dreamed that their lives, though very meaningful would, over a period of time, have drawn the attention of the nation to them in such a riveting and predominant manner? Who would have dreamed a little more than a week ago that my mother, Mary Lou Taylor Bullard, age 84 and almost 8 months, a United States Air Force Veteran and tougher than whip leather but ev ery inch a Southern lady, who has battled two knee replacements, a mastectomy and many reversals in life and, who started working when most people retire, would have fought valiantly for her life over Labor Day weekend, but she did, and, with Gods help and His answer to our re quests, at this writing, is recovering. Who would have thought it? The surprise results of the Florida gu bernatorial candidates, the focus of the na tion on the home going services for Aretha Franklin and the late Senator John Mc Cain, and my mothers major bump in the road with her health, suffering much pain, surgery and now rehabilitation, all made me focus on the fact that Our America, while awed and tat tered and changing can and will come together, as families do in times of trouble to focus on what makes our nation uniquely unique and marvelous. And I can relate to you what that is, though many may disagree. In a word, Diversity is our strength. Now think about that one. Do you be lieve the world in which we live would be as wonderful if the only color was blue, or white, and the only ice cream avor, butter pecan (my father the late Wade Bullards favorite)? No, it would not. We like choic es in the United States of America, and we always have. The Florida gubernatorial candidates, one who leans politically to the extreme right, the other to the extreme left, each one uniquely unique and, are bound to cause controversy and reworks across the Sunshine State, because each represents a polar opposite on the political spectrum. More reworks, in my opinion than weve seen in this state since Republican Claude Kirk came out of oblivion to defeat Dem ocratic contender Robert King High, then mayor of Miami. It was the beginning of the unraveling of Floridas, then old Dixiecrat stronghold over the state, and a dawning of a new political era. The results of the gubernatorial race, this time are almost, with certainty to spark as intense a reworks display, politically speaking. Aretha Franklin, Queen of Soul, who began singing gospel at the age of early elementary school in her fathers Detroit Church and who gave us such soulful renditions of songs that, even over what would now be considered antiquated AM radio stations, she made us laugh, cry, dance, and sing. Senator John McCain, born to privilege and prestige who went on to suffer and suffer more for our Republic and, though unsuccessful in his bid for the Presidency, kept his eye on the ag and never wavered in his opinions, though others might want him to lean left or right. My mother, widowed at the age of 59, has contributed over and over again, and was never late to a meeting, always present, always contributing, always mak ing a homemade treat and whose faith in family, in friends, in her own strong Christian walk, and in her opinions, even when not aligned with mine or others in the family, remained her own and ercely independent and, yet, who despite her age, her walk in life, and the culture in which she was raised, has a erce belief on how people should be treated, all people of all races and walks of life even those very different from hers. If she loves you, she loves you, and if she is dedicated to a cause, shes all in. Diversity, Mama served in the military at a time when women, at best, were rel egated to second class status in so many ways. Yet, through her life she, by exam ple, and not always moving in the line one would have chosen, was ercely indepen dent in many, many ways. Diversity, not just having to choose but celebrating the exotic, the different, the unique, because of the way it touches us at our very core. Aretha Franklin, John McCain, DeSantis and Gillum, my Mama Mary Lou Taylor Bullard age close to 85 and still with many borrowed parts and scars keep going like our nation. Now, I was, you might as well say born and bred in a small community on the banks of the Suwannee that, from the time of my birth, celebrated the diversity of the nation and this state, at the annual Florida Folk Festival. I grew up watching Greek dancers, Seminole Indians, Minor cans, Cubans, folks from Eastern Europe, African Americans, Florida Crackers, all parts of the spectrum of the rainbow as semble and celebrate uniqueness on the banks of the Suwannee River. At the time these celebrations began, while diversity was being celebrated, there were still, by state law, separate bath room facilities and rest rooms for whites and blacks that were clearly and legally marked White and Colored. Those days, now gone for more than half a cen tury still linger in the memories of many who hang on to residuals of awareness and, many times, anger, that is no more productive nor healthy than those signs and a practice that marked a century of change. Cultural changes are the slowest chang es in the world. We can change what the laws make us do; but we cant change overnight what is ingrained into the hearts and minds of people; whether right or wrong. Just as my mothers healing came from a Divine power, we must, at times, leave those changes in the heats of men and women to a power Higher than human power to either work its magic or not, and, at the same time, as with the late Senator John McCain, Aretha Franklin, the Florida gubernatorial candidates, and my mother, we must be willing to speak out for what we believe, even when others consider our beliefs unpopular and, not, in line with the norm. If many someones had not spoken out, we would still be calling London, En gland, our capitol, and being taxed without any representation in parliament. What a difference a day makes. It is true, 24 hours, two centuries, 20 years, 50 years, if we live long enough, change oc curs to us or with us. Like the Suwannee River that ows through the heart of our homeland, we have rises and falls, swift currents and placid ones, but all of us are moving to empty into that sea of eternity, at what time, we dont know. What a difference a day makes. Ben jamin Franklin, a founding Father of the nation, known for witticisms and brilliance wrote Do Not Squander Time. It is the stuff life is made of. Good thoughts in a time where change and diversity remain at the forefront here, in our homeland, and beyond. From the Eight Mile Still on the Wood pecker Route north of White Springs, wishing you a day lled with joy, peace, and, above all, lots of love and laughter.

SEPTEMBER 5 & 6, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 8A State & Region r tom.lynn@ganews.com VALDOSTA, Ga. Quincey Roberts kidneys started failing while he was a fuel manager for the Air Force. After retirement, he was hit with hyper tension, diabetes and pancreatitis simul taneously. He gained 100 pounds in six months. The rst time I was told I had kidney problems was when I went to Dr. Ven Chiangs ofce (in Valdosta), and they said, you have (kidney problems) and you have to go on dialysis, Roberts said. Id never heard of dialysis before. I think dial ysis is one of those things that no one talks about. Its looked at as a death sentence. Across the SunLight Project coverage area Valdosta, Tifton, Moultrie, Milled geville, Dalton and Thomasville, Ga. and Live Oak, Fla. hundreds of people wake up before dawn, drive to a dialysis clinic and have their blood cycled through a ma chine to clean out toxins. The process can take three to four hours, three times a week. Without treatment, the patients would die. Roberts has been on dialysis for six years and has returned to a relatively healthy weight. He looks at his treatments as a job. I just come here, do my time, talk to the nurses and go home, he said. You cant let it get you down, though. You can still live a productive life. But he had to make adjustments. After leaving the Air Force, the 66-yearold wanted to open a business; he gave up the dream because of dialysis. Still, he found a worthy occupation in helping vet erans le claims with the Veterans Admin istration and helping them get benets. Roberts met with a veteran one time who was visibly upset. He asked him if he could help him with anything. The vet told Roberts he wouldnt understand. The veteran said he was put on dialysis and his brothers wouldnt give him a kid ney. I had been on dialysis for nearly four years at the time, he said. I told him so what if his brother wouldnt give him a kidney. You can still live with dialysis but you have to change your attitude. You have to be able to adapt to it. Toxins in the Body Dr. Melissa Rampal is a transplant ne phrologist at Tift Regional Medical Center. She is capable of taking care of patients with kidney transplants as well as treating patients who have problems with their kidneys. We deal with diabetes, which is the most common cause of kidney disease, she said. We deal with hypertension, which is the second most common cause of kidney disease and any other conditions that can affect the kidneys. Conditions that could lead to kidney failure, which leads to people being on dialysis. The kidneys are amazing organs, Rampal said. Theyre able to perform several different functions in the body that most people arent aware of. In addition to removing toxins, the kid neys regulate blood pressure, are involved in the maturation of red blood cells and in producing an enzyme that produces vita min D. They regulate glands responsible for calcium in the body. Bones can weaken when kidneys arent working correctly. Lack of exercise, sedentary lifestyles and the typical American diet can take a toll on kidneys, Rampal said. In this area, diabetes and hypertension are responsible for the majority of dialysis cases, said Dr. F. David Newby, a ne phrologist based in Dalton. Hypertension and diabetes can lead to kidney failure, leaving kidneys unable to remove toxins, salt and excess water from the body. Dialysis does that for patients who have lost kidney functions. In many, but not all cases, Newby said hypertension and type 2 diabetes can be prevented by exercise and proper diet. Rampal said there are two types of di alysis. Peritoneal dialysis can be done at home and involves a surgeon placing a catheter inside the abdomen and using a machine to introduce liquid into the body and then removing it after it binds to toxins in the body. Hemodialysis requires patients to visit a clinic several times a week, so they can be hooked to a machine that removes their blood from their body, cleans and lters it, then returns it to the body. It is the most common form of dialysis and can severely impact a patients quality of life. They both achieve the same goal, re moving toxins from the body, Rampal said. They just do it in different ways. Diabetes is the number one cause of kidney disease and kidney failure, Rampal said. Disease and failure are different, she said. Disease you can live with for the rest of your life, and the majority of us will develop kidney disease at some point in our life because as we get older our kidney function will begin to slow down. Kidney failure is a different problem and someone whose kidneys have completely stopped working requires permanent dialy sis or a transplant. The majority of people start dialysis be tween the age of 45 to 64, Rampal said. There are things people can do to head off kidney disease and failure. In the South, particularly, we have a lot of fast-food places and the majority of people eat out, so a lot of what I do is educate my patients on how to keep their kidneys healthy, Rampal said. A lot of that is making sure their diabetes and blood pressure is well controlled and life style changes. If theyre smoking, try to cut down and stop. If they are going to eat out, choose from the healthy portion of the menu. Stay away from the fried stuff. Exercising. Weight loss. Lack of Access, Lifestyle According to the U.S. Renal Data System, nearly 15 percent of Americans some 30 million adults have early stages of chronic kidney disease. In 2015, there were 124,111 new cases of end stage renal disease, with nearly half a million patients on dialysis and more than 200,000 living with a kidney trans plant, making the U.S. rate of kidney fail ure among the highest in the world. Southern states tend to have even higher rates and poverty increases incidences of kidney disease. Alicia Horkan, a nurse at Colquitt Re gional Medical Center, attributes that to poor lifestyle factors and lack of access or ability to pay for health care. An aging population is one (factor), she said. People are living longer. Good health care is keeping people alive longer, so they start dialysis later. That is contrib uting to older people on dialysis. Some start in their 80s. At the Dialysis Center at Colquitt Re gional in Moultrie, the oldest patient is 92. This part of the country, lifestyles, the foods we eat here, we have a lot of peo ple with the need for dialysis, she said. Theres a lot of factors. Socioeconomic factors also play a role in how well they can manage their disease process. Factors include lack of money for regu lar health checkups that could catch kidney problems earlier and for medication even when the disease is diagnosed. A single mother with the choice between feeding and housing her children or drugs for high blood pressure will invariably choose the former, she said. Dialysis is expensive, and Horkan esti mates that about 95 percent of people seen in Moultrie have assistance from Medicare. Private insurance will pay for 30 months, usually at 80 percent of costs of the dialysis and medicine with the Medi care end stage renal disease program pick ing up the balance. Then, people with private insurance usually get 20 percent from that source and Medicare picks up 80 percent. Other patients are covered fully by Medicare, except for co-pays, or some combination of Medicare along with Med icaid. People who did not pay into Social Se curity or have a spouse who did are usual ly covered by Medicaid. Some can self-pay on a hardship, Horkan said. The hospital has an indigent fund. We refer people to see if they qualify for indigent care. For military veterans, such as Roberts, the VA takes care of dialysis payments. Sandra Filko, clinic manager at Frese nius Kidney Care on Kings Way in Valdo sta, said the clinic would never turn away a patient because of inability to pay. That would be a death sentence, Filko said. We work with them. We have social workers come in and speak with patients all the time offering help and ways to make payments. Horkan said eligible patients are encour aged to apply for a kidney transplant list. Some patients may not qualify due to age or other health reasons. We encourage them to apply to a trans plant center and let them decide if they are candidates for a kidney, Horkan said. We give them a choice of where they want to be referred. Even there, money can be an issue. To be accepted on a list, Horkan said, the pa tient must be able to leave on short notice on a long trip to Atlanta, Augusta, Gaines ville, Macon and return for visits after receiving the organ. Transplant wait times depend on loca tion and demographics, Rampal said. In the state of Georgia, for a deceased donor, the wait time is about three to ve years, and then it depends on your blood type, she said. If youre blood type O, you can only receive from an O, so they may take longer. If youre in New York, it may be between ve to 10 years. If youre in Las Vegas, it might be a year. So it just depends. A living donor, whether they are related or not, can provide a kidney in approxi mately three months. Filko said her clinic serves about 50 patients and only about two patients get a kidney transplant a year. Even when a transplant is approved, things can go wrong that prevent the pa tient from getting a new kidney. She said she had a patient approved three times for a transplant before nally getting a kidney. The rst time he was told they had a kidney, so he got in his car to go get it, Filko said. When he got down to Jackson ville, he was told it wasnt viable and they didnt do the surgery. If surgeons feel like the kidney isnt go ing to work, whether because its damaged or a bad match for the patient, doctors will not go through with the surgery, she said. The second time the patent went to get a kidney, it developed clots and was no lon ger viable for transplant. But the third time was the charm and the patient received his new kidney. Filko said she is hopeful there will be more permanent xes for people on dialy sis and possible articial kidneys, so peo ple dont have to go through false alarms before getting a transplant. Theyre still looking, though, she said. Theyre searching for that magic bullet. Home Away From Home With so many people on dialysis, it is no surprise that every county has at least one dialysis clinic. People get to know these clinics as a second home as they visit them for years, three days a week hours at a time. Sandra Filko, clinic manager at Frese nius Kidney Care on Kings Way in Val dosta, said she knows people at her clinic who have been coming for decades and will probably be on dialysis until the day they die. But, in Filkos experience, clinics arent depressing. Patients and staff get to know each other and build bonds with one an other. I think this is an extremely rewarding job, Filko said. She started as an oncology nurse at a hospital in Tennessee. She said dialysis isnt something typically brought up in nursing school. She learned about dialysis care when a nephrologist visited her hos pital and told her she would be a good t for it. He told her about a clinic not far from where she lived and said she should stop by one day and check it out. I did and it was so nice, Filko said. It was like it is here (at the clinic in Valdos ta). Its the camaraderie between patients and everyone there to take care of them. You could see them come in sick and wouldnt even know I was in the room. Then they would start their treatment and you would slowly see them feel better. It created this connection with making people feeling better, and as a nurse, thats why we do what we do. We want to help people, she said. There are ve walk-in dialysis clinics in Valdosta: Fresenius or Rai Kidney Care on Kings Way and Rai Kidney Care on Patterson Street, U.S. Renal Care South Georgia Dialysis and Central Valdosta and DaVita Oak Street Dialysis.

The Odd Couple The sound of audiences laughing at his material provided the afrmation that his own childhood denied him. My favorite lm adaptation is The Odd Couple, released in 1968 and starring Walter Mat thau and Jack Lemmon. Characters Oscar Madison and Felix Unger cohabit Madi sons New York apartment while Unger and his wife endure a separation. Madison is a total slob who is driven insane by Fe lix and his obsessive neatness. Mike Nichols won his rst Tony Award for directing it. Barefoot in the Park made Robert Redford a star. And Burt Bacharach scored his musicals. His plays enjoyed 9,000 performances on Broadway in a 15-year period (1965 to 1980), with four running simultaneously in 1966. He wrote Brighton Beach Memoirs, Biloxi Blues, Lost in Yon kers, The Prisoner of Second Avenue, Pla za Suite and many more. Neil Simon was born in the Bronx on July 4, 1927. His sales man father left and returned repeatedly. Eventually the family dissolved and Neil was shufed off to live with relatives. Several of his plays, including Lost in Yonkers, draw from his early life experiences. Simon was awarded a Tony and a Pulitzer Prize for that play. After his discharge from the Air Force, he began writing comedy sketches for Phil Silvers and Sid Caesar. His rst play, Come Blow Your Horn, was written in Oscar, Felix and the musical sound of laughter 1961 and enjoyed 677 performances. Simon wrote about middle class people, their foibles and funny mannerisms, and the struggles of families, marriage, and everyday living. After his rst wife died of cancer in 1973, he married actress Mar sha Mason and wrote what he considered his favorite play, Chapter Two, based on their marital strife. Biloxi Blues was developed from Simons own military ex periences in Denver. Simon died recently at age 91. From a relatively impoverished and dysfunctional upbringing, Neil Simon rose to the top of his profession as a playwright. He took the everyday agony and unhappiness sur rounding him, and turned it into profes sional success through good humor, hard work and immense natural talent. Perhaps it is hyperbole, but one critic called him the most prolic playwright since Shake speare. There is a common misconception that rich, successful Americans inherit their place in society from their similarly wealthy parents. While exposure to han dling nancial issues can provide a leg up, a person must develop his or her own nancial and career success, regardless of background. Many times, the desire to escape and deal with dysfunctionality or poverty can provide remarkable nancial motivation to achieve. Margaret R.

FMC Dialysis Services is the one clinic in the Live Oak, Fla., region. Milledgeville has four dialysis clinics spread throughout the community: U.S. Renal Care, Milledgeville Dialysis, Bald win Dialysis Center, Dialysis Center of Milledgeville and DaVita Dialysis. The Baldwin Dialysis Center currently sees more than 40 patients and is one of ve American Renal Associates afliate facilities owned and operated by Central Georgia Kidney Specialists. The most frequent reason Baldwin Dial ysis Center sees patients needing dialysis is lack of education, said Chasity Wilson, a BDC employee. Wilson said she believes there is a rising demand for dialysis in most communities. At present, she said she believes the clinic is meeting the needs of patients in mid dle Georgia as a result of the partnership between American Renal Associates and Central Georgia Kidney Specialists. Well continue to work to meet those needs, Wilson said. DaVitas Milledgeville clinic has 12 chairs and currently serves 55 patients. The Milledgeville DaVita site, as well as all DaVita dialysis centers, has a kidney care team to support patients including a nurse, dietician, social worker, insurance counselor and patient care technicians. Insurance counselors work with patients to review insurance and payment options. Moultrie has three Thomasville nephrol ogists, Drs.

He said anti-inammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen, aggravate high blood pres sure and kidney disease. Thomasville has two dialysis clinics. Neither responded to requests for infor mation. Curtis Hall of Sylvester is one of Hicks patients. He tried other facilities and went to the Thomasville nephrologist when his kidneys failed in 2006. He has been such a wonderful, won derful doctor and friend, Hall said. The 50-year-old has autoimmune glo merulonephritis and has managed with home hemodialysis for more than 11 years. He injects himself with two needles every night. One needle takes his blood into a machine that cleans it and removes excess uids. The blood is then returned through the other needle. Hall undergoes the treatment ve nights a week. He can skip two nights a week, as long as the nights are not consecutive. The treatment is time-consuming, but Hall, an AT&T engineer, said it has given him his life back by not having to go to a dialysis center. Hall rarely feels bad, he said. He has missed only one of his sons high school or college games since his condition was diagnosed when the boy was 12. I can take my machine anywhere I go. It gives me an opportunity to have a full life, Hall said. He decided against a kidney transplant. With a transplant, the disease could return and attack the transplanted kidney. Hall opted to stay on dialysis. Dialysis is my best option right now, he said. The SunLight Project team of jour nalists who contributed to this report includes Thomas Lynn, Patti Dozier, Eve Copeland, Charles Oliver, Gil Pound, Alan Mauldin and Terry Richards. r rttftrtrfbtrbrbbtf btrrbrrr Dr. Merrill Hicks, a Thomasville ne phrologist, said more can be done for dialysis patients. He said the government could provide transportation to dialysis clinics, repricing home dialysis and pay ing more for medication for kidney trans plants. The government encourages home peri toneal dialysis, the physician said. The gentlest form of home dialysis is peritoneal dialysis, which uses the lining of the abdomen to lter blood. Hemodial ysis uses a machine to lter the blood. If it were up to me, I would put a hap py face on home dialysis, Hicks said. He said home hemodialysis is discour aged because of the cost. However, there have been recent tech nical improvements which lower the costs substantially, Hicks said. The commu nity at large needs to understand that all forms of home dialysis, both peritoneal di alysis and home hemodialysis, are gentler with superior results, compared to three times weekly in-center dialysis.

At the August gathering in Live Oak, there were 11 musicians in the circle and approximately 40 people in the audience. It was the largest gath ering yet for the newest SongFarmers chapter, the fourth in Florida. Johns said the Suwannee River Valley chapter, which originally met in White Springs before moving to Lake City, had just four musicians and ve in the audience when it rst met. This is a really good time, said Johns, whose wife Linda is the chapter leader of the Live Oak chapter while he serves as the leader of the Suwannee River Valley group. Its wholesome entertainment. And much like Johns enjoys about it, the group performing Thursday in cluded musicians ranging from two pre-teenage girls in Jessica Ellis and McK ayden Wilkerson to men that believed themselves to be rockers at one time, such as Mike Thornton. Thornton, who is origi nally from Gilchrist County before moving to Branford recently, said his rst gath ering will not be his last. I enjoyed it, Thornton said. Its real personable, I guess you can say. With everybody sitting in the cir cle and playing the songs. Thornton said while he used to play rock and roll, he lately has been focused on learning gospel music so he can play at church. One of his selections Thursday was I believe. Other selections included Wilkerson playing a song she has written herself to SongFarmer Blues to the gathering concluding Will Continued From Page 1A SongFarmers reach, instructor Larry Garcia said, explaining that the unit spends most of its time performing surgeries at its on-campus facility. However, there are times once or twice a week where the unit can take stu dents out to shelters. There may be more help coming from the group in the future too. One of the things were looking at is the potential of coming out here with that (mobile surgical) unit and several students and do surgeries, Garcia said. So wed get here early in the morning, do surgery all day and then the animals would stay here at the shelter overnight for follow-up. Burleson is hoping that trip comes to fruition as it could include spays and neuters being performed on the shelters animals, which in turn would mean animals could be rescued with just a $15 adoption fee. It saves the community money and it saves our city money, Burleson said about the visit, adding about the possible return for spays and neuters in the future. Thatll be a big cost savings to the com munity. Theyll be able to have a dog that is com pletely done. They get to just go home and love it. Were trying to expand our reach and do more for the shelters out here, Gar cia added, saying most of the shelters dont have the resources to do everything on their own. Burleson, for example, is a one-person animal con trol division. Last year she had 380 animals that came through the shelter and while caring for them, she is also answering calls and patrolling the city for other animals too. From there, she also has to try and nd homes for the animals she brings into the shelter. One avenue she uses is the K9s for Warriors orga nization. The group, which is based in Ponte Vedra, has made a handful of trips to Live Oak previously. Fridays trip included eval uating three dogs, with two getting selected to possibly enter the program which pairs dogs with wounded warriors from Afghanistan or Iraq as service animals. Debbi Hunnicutt, the intake coordinator for K9s for Warriors, said there are certain criteria the dog must meet, including being of a certain height and they cant be older than 2 as well as having their shots, Continued From Page 1A Mobile it and I want to commend the school ofcials for putting the protocol in, St. John said.

Naturally there were some anxious parents wanting to know what was going on, and thats under standable. etc. While the organizations goal is to help veterans with PTSD, the added ben et is helping the canines too. Thats the beauty of it, Hunnicutt said. Were taking someone that was forgotten or basically left for dead. Ive pulled some dogs on urgent lists before. And they know. I think they know. I love the fact that I can sit there at gradu ation and look at them and they look at me and its like, Youre welcome. It really is a happy sight. Burleson added: Weve got dogs that are coming off the streets and going and becoming service dogs and helping disabled vet erans. Its also a moving sight each month when the non-prot organization brings 12 warriors onsite for three weeks of trainings with the dogs that leads up to the graduation. Some have tears in their eyes when they rst go out, Hunnicutt said as some havent left their homes for years previous ly. They can go to soccer games or whatever now and not be scared.

In some areas of the District we continue to see ooding that began in early July, which is very unusual especially since there have been no tropical systems yet, said Fay Baird, senior hydrologist for the district. In many places the Flor idan Aquifer is more sat urated than it has been for numerous years. Aquifer Alert, the new alert system, allows users to sign up for automatic notications through text and/or email whenever new groundwater or hydrological information is posted. The district is currently updating the information twice per week. More than half of the 88 long-term groundwater gauges across the SRWMD are showing groundwater levels above the 90th per centile the highest on record in many areas. High groundwater levels increase the risk for ooding if a major rainfall event were to occur because the ground is SRWMD releases aquifer alert system already saturated. If a signicant weather system occurs over our already-wet conditions, we will very likely see local ized ooding in many areas across the district, said Baird. Although no major storms have been predict ed for the area, residents should take action to get prepared now. The SRWMD recom mends residents take the following precautions: 1. Make a plan for an alternate exit route in the event your main route is ooded. 2. Identify a location to move low-lying valuables and animals to higher ground. 3. Clear drainageways and ditches of fallen trees or debris. 4. Become familiar with past ood water levels in your area so you have a ref erence point.

Similarly six single-digit setbacks led to a 3-9 campaign in 2015. Its frustrating, Tech senior linebacker Brant Mitchell said. We were one possession here, one possession there, one step, one missed tackle away from having a successful season and going to a really good bowl game or even further than that. Georgia Tech has been there before, playing for the ACC title in 2012 and 2014, both times coming within one score of a conference title. Clemson, obviously, has been there as well with the Tigers becoming the ACC behemoth. But even with all their success, the Tigers have had close calls six wins in conference games by one score, and have been tripped up by Syracuse a year ago and Pittsburgh in 2016. Again, a deep conference where anybody can play with anybody. Its a challenge every year, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said. Its incredibly competi tive. Youd better show up and get better. Youd better show up and be ready. Dino Babers is entering his third season as Syracuses head coach. Prior to joining the Orange, he had spent time as an assistant at Arizona and Baylor, Pittsburgh and Purdue, Texas A&M and UCLA. All those years and all that travel has meant hes seen a lot of good teams and good conferences. Hell put the ACC up there with any of them. This conference is no joke, he said. You know, coaches come up here and they read their lines and they try to reinforce their conference and everybody does that, okay. This is no baloney cheese for me. This conference is a real football conference. And the diversity of the coaches and the different ways that they try to attack you, Ive never seen anything like this before. I mean, this conference is as good a football conference as the top conferences in the country. It wasnt always that way. When Florida State joined in 1992, the Seminoles had little trouble with their conference brethren. FSU won its first 29 conference games and won or shared the ACC title every year from 1992 through 2000 when it was 70-2 in league play. Florida State at that time, we just we out-classed a lot of people in just the athletic ability and all that type of thing, Miami coach and for mer FSU assistant Mark Richt said about those days. Louisville coach Bobby Petrino remembers having a similar feeling at times with the Cardinals when the school played in the Big East and Conference USA. Thats no longer the case. And thats because, as a whole, the conference has made a commitment to improve and then backed it up on the field. Youve got to go beat people, and I think that rhetoric has changed, Swinney said. When I got the job nine years ago, thats where we were, and we earned that, too. We didnt beat anybody. And so I used to tell people all the time, Id be like, Guys, lets just shut up weve got to play people youve got to beat people, then the story will change, and thats whats happened.Jamie Wachter CNHI Sports Florida 2018FOOTBALL PREVIEW Jamie Wachter, Heather Bremer | CNHI Sports Indiana Photos: Florida State Athletics, Boston College Athletics, Mark Hoyle/Clemson Athletics, Duke Athletics, Miami Athletics, Pete Emerson/UVA Media Relations, Syracuse University AthleticsACCWhile CLEMSON remained atop the ATLANTIC COAST CONFERENCE and earned a playoff berth for the third straight season, a deep conference race could be fun to watch unfold in 2018.(8-4) (11-1) (9-3) (5-7) (8-4) (4-8) (3-9) (7-5) (7-5) (10-2) (6-6) (4-8) (5-7) (10-2) DIVISION CHAMPS ACC CHAMPIONATLANTIC DIVISION COASTAL DIVISION CAM AKERS RB | FLORIDA ST.NOTABLES: Austin Bryant, DL, Clemson; Ryan Finley, QB, N.C.

The Tigers cruised to 49-7 victory and their 11th straight win in the rivalry game. The Bulldogs nished with ve turnovers three fum bles and two interceptions. Thats a team that doesnt need any help. Theyve got players all over the eld. You cant let one mistake turn into four or ve mistakes, said Suwannee coach Kyler Hall. A highly-touted Columbia (2-0) team, ranked No. 8 in the state by oridahsfootball. com, came as advertised. Jordan Smith passed for 240 yards in the rst half and the Tigers ran for 135 yards.

The nal two plays before halftime, though, proved it was going to go Chieands way instead at Buccaneer Stadium. Following a lightning delay of near ly 90 minutes, the Indians used two scores off Branford turnovers, includ ing a fumble recovery and subsequent touchdown on the nal two offensive snaps of the rst half to pull away from the Bucs. Chieand then piled it on in the second half for a 47-15 rout, including 27 points off turnovers. It was a tale of two halves, Bran ford coach Tim Clark said. The rst half we came out and with our physi cality, they werent expecting as much ght as we brought them and it was dead even. We were smart with the football. We were aggressive and played really sound. Tied at 7 midway through the second quarter when lightning in the area caused the delay, Chieand (20) came out of the break and pulled ahead for good three minutes later on a 3-yard Jarrett Jerrels touchdown run. Then the oodgates opened even though the rain had stopped prior to the end of the delay. An Aaron McQuay fumble on rrrr f Turnovers cost Trojans against Buffalo rr rf rrfrrn ffbrrfr

SEPTEMBER 5 & 6, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 6B How teens can cope with stress No one is immune to stress. When chronic, stress can have long-lasting negative eects on a persons overall health, potentially contributing to high blood pressure and weakening suerers immune systems, thereby making them more vulnerable to a host of ailments. Stress may be most oen associated with adults, but teenagers are no strangers to stress. In the 2014 Stress in AmericaTM survey from the American Psychological Association, teens reported that their stress levels during the school year far exceeded what they believed to be healthy. In fact, teens reported stress levels during the school year (5.8 on a 10-point scale) actually exceeded adults average reported stress levels. In addition to the pressures of school, teens must contend with social pressures. Balancing the two can be dicult, but the APA oers the following tips to teenagers looking to keep their stress levels in check. active is one of the most eective ways to combat stress. Teens are urged to nd activities they enjoy. For example, non-athletes need not try out for the baseball team or another organized sport simply because physical activity is an eective way to reduce stress. Teens are more likely to have fun and relieve stress when participating in a physical activity they enjoy, especially when such activities include their friends. teens need between eight and 10 hours of sleep per night to function best. But the Stress in America survey found that teens sleep an average of just 7.4 hours on school nights. Operating on insucient sleep can compound existing stress, so teens who are not getting enough rest should make a concerted eort to get more sleep each night. recommends that teenagers not overbook their schedules, leaving little time to enjoy themselves. While its important to focus on school, teens also should schedule time to have fun, during which they should attempt to avoid worrying about school. when those coping with it welcome the assistance of others. Teens can speak about their stress with their parents, teachers or other trusted adults, many of whom likely dealt with similar stress when they were teens. Such adults may even share how they manage their own stress, which can be useful to teens. Teens deal with stress every day. In an eort to manage such stress, teens can embrace various strategies. More information about how teens can manage stress is available at www.apa.org. Please Call Jennifer at 386-362-1734 to place your ad here138014-1 138030-1 1506 S.

LHS (2-0) scored on its rst play when All-State performers Jaxson Beach and Ben Massey hooked up through the air. It was the start of a big day for both Beach and Massey. Playing less than a half, Beach completed 4 of 5 passes for 225 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. He also hit Massey for scores of 89 and 54 yards in the second quarter to extend the Hornets lead to 27-0. Massey, who nished with 336 yards and four touchdowns on six catches, also had a 72-yard scoring reception from Adam Perry that put LHS ahead 33-0 at halftime. After Bronson scored late in the third quarter, Garris Edwards answered right back with an 87-yard kickoff return for a score to make the nal 40-6. Lafayettes other score came when Joseph Perry blocked an Eagle punt and recovered it in the end zone in the second quarter. The Hornets nished with 467 yards of offense on just 29 plays. UP NEXT: Lafayette hosts 2-0 Chieand in the home opener Friday night. The Indians have routed Trenton (41-0) and Bran ford (47-12) so far this sea son. The Hornets downed Chieand 41-17 last year. Continued From Page 1B Mayo The second TD from The Villages came three plays after the Trojans appeared on the verge of possibly their rst score of the season. Following a Bailey Hawkins intercep tion, DeNandre Johnson broke free for a 47-yard scamper to move HCHS to The Villages 21. Two plays later, though, John son fumbled. Trailing 27-0 in the second, the Trojans again threatened to to get back in the game. Relying on a handful of backs, includ ing Keyvon Webb, Haw kins and Johnson, HCHS used eight plays to march inside the Buffalo 10. However after three short runs, Johnsons fourthdown pass fell incomplete and the Trojans turned it over on downs at the 3 with 75 seconds remain ing in the half. The Buffalo needed just 73 seconds of that, scor ing with two ticks left in the half when Harris and Wright connected from 15 yards out for a 34-0 half time lead. The Villages added one score in both the third and fourth quarters. Webb led Hamilton with 38 yards rushing on eight carries, while Hawkins added 34 yards on four attempts. Johnson completed 2-of-9 passes for 19 yards and rushed for 21 yards as HCHS nished with 112 yards of offense 93 rushing. The Villages rushed for 264 yards and nished with 446 yards of total offense. UP NEXT: Hamilton heads to rival Suwannee on Friday night. The Trojans have lost their past 19 games against the Bulldogs, last winning in 1996. Dating back to 1979, HCHS is just 6-29 against Suwannee. Suwannee has outscored Hamilton 114-20 the past three years. Continued From Page 1B Trojans its touchdown thanks to the connections between Tyree Taylor and wide re ceiver Jaquary Pratt. Pratt made a nice catch down the sideline that went for 46 yards and then three plays later hauled in a 20yard pass to give Suwan nee a rst-and-goal. Jaquez Moore took it from there, bursting into the end zone for a 4-yard rushing touchdown with 4:10 remaining in the half. Taylor held his own in the loss, completing 12 of 24 throws for 146 yards. He was intercepted twice, one of those coming on a desperation pass into the end zone at the end of the rst half. I did see some guys have to lead in tough cir cumstances, Hall said. I told Tyree, This is how you really lead. When youre down, playing a great team and everything is going against you. I was proud of the way he kept on. He had some nice throws. Pratt played a heck of a game in all phases. UP NEXT: Suwannee hosts Hamilton County (0-2) next week. The Bulldogs are hosting their 30th anniversary reunion for the state championship teams that night. Continued From Page 1B Bulldogs Branfords next snap was returned 30 yards for a touch down. The Indians appeared ready to convert another Buc turnover this time a Jevin Johnson interception into points when CJ Pepper picked off a Chieand pass at the goalline with 19 seconds remaining in the half. However, Branford fum bled again on the next play and the Indians tacked on a 5-yard touchdown on a Ty Corbin bootleg to take a 26-7 lead into a shortened halftime. We turned it over a cou ple times and from there, I just wish we had seen a little more ght, Clark said. The Bucs (1-1) pulled within two scores early in the fourth when Seth Heiderman found Clay Williams in the end zone from 7 yards out and then Heiderman powered his way into the end zone for a two-point conversion to make it 26-15. An interception on the next drive, though, stopped Bran fords momentum. The Indians scored on a 4-yard Sedrick Moultrie run on the next play and then returned an interception for a touchdown one minute later to go up 40-15. Bran ford turned the ball over ve times total. Chieand, which rushed for 216 yards as a team, add ed a 2-yard Hunter Barrand scoring run with 3:31 to go for the nal margin. Pepper, who nished with 117 yards on four catches to go along with the inter ception, sparked the Bucs early when a deected pass bounced his way on the sec ond offensive snap and he raced down to the Chieand 2 before being tackled. Three runs later, Dakota Hamm hit pay dirt and the Bucs led 7-0 with 9:39 left in the rst. Branford kept that lead un til Amonte Young hauled in an 18-yard Corbin pass with Heiderman draped on him with 9:48 left in the second quarter that tied it. Branford, which rushed for 400 yards in its season opener, nished with just 165 yards of total offense Friday all coming through the air. The Bucs were held to zero rushing yards on 34 attempts. Theyre just huge up front, Clark said about the Indians run defense. Credit them, they do a great job with their scheme up front on the defensive line and theyre big and theyre fast. Thats a good football team. UP NEXT: Branford gets a much-needed bye week after a physical matchup with the Indians took its toll on the Bucs. Branford hosts Trenton on Sept. 14. The Tigers are 0-2.

Clemsons three straight conference titles and College Football Playoff appearances may not show it, but the ACC now boasts depth up and down and throughout the confer ence. The depth has been proven the past two years when the conference sent 10 (2016) and 11 (2017) teams to bowl games. Its also evident in how razor-thin the margin of vic tory from defeat can be. Just ask Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets lost two games by one point and had another four-point setback last fall when they finished 5-6. Similarly six single-digit setbacks led to a 3-9 campaign in 2015. Its frustrating, Tech senior linebacker Brant Mitchell said. We were one possession here, one possession there, one step, one missed tackle away from having a successful season and going to a really good bowl game or even further than that. Georgia Tech has been there before, playing for the ACC title in 2012 and 2014, both times coming within one score of a conference title. Clemson, obviously, has been there as well with the Tigers becoming the ACC behemoth. But even with all their success, the Tigers have had close calls six wins in conference games by one score, and have been tripped up by Syracuse a year ago and Pittsburgh in 2016. Again, a deep conference where anybody can play with anybody. Its a challenge every year, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said. Its incredibly competi tive. Youd better show up and get better. Youd better show up and be ready. Dino Babers is entering his third season as Syracuses head coach. Prior to joining the Orange, he had spent time as an assistant at Arizona and Baylor, Pittsburgh and Purdue, Texas A&M and UCLA. All those years and all that travel has meant hes seen a lot of good teams and good conferences. Hell put the ACC up there with any of them. This conference is no joke, he said. You know, coaches come up here and they read their lines and they try to reinforce their conference and everybody does that, okay. This is no baloney cheese for me. This conference is a real football conference. And the diversity of the coaches and the different ways that they try to attack you, Ive never seen anything like this before. I mean, this conference is as good a football conference as the top conferences in the country. It wasnt always that way. When Florida State joined in 1992, the Seminoles had little trouble with their conference brethren. FSU won its first 29 conference games and won or shared the ACC title every year from 1992 through 2000 when it was 70-2 in league play. Florida State at that time, we just we out-classed a lot of people in just the athletic ability and all that type of thing, Miami coach and for mer FSU assistant Mark Richt said about those days. Louisville coach Bobby Petrino remembers having a similar feeling at times with the Cardinals when the school played in the Big East and Conference USA. Thats no longer the case. And thats because, as a whole, the conference has made a commitment to improve and then backed it up on the field. Youve got to go beat people, and I think that rhetoric has changed, Swinney said. When I got the job nine years ago, thats where we were, and we earned that, too. We didnt beat anybody.
