The Live Oak City Council ap proved the rollback rate of 9.1771 mills for the upcoming scal year by a 4-1 vote at Tuesdays meet ing with councilman Mark Stewart voting against. The citys current millage rate is 8.9132. City Man ager Ron Wil liams told the council in July when it set the maximum pos sible millage rate that while property values have increased in the city, there are fewer properties to tax which led to the increase in the rollback rate, which is the tax rate that will provide the same amount of tax revenue as the previous years rate. Stewart told the rest of the council Tues day he would prefer to leave the millage rate at the current rate, even though that would mean less revenue being brought in. Being in the second year of a rate increase on our utilities and we have another one next year, the residents are really getting double whammied on taxes going up, Stewart said. Theres also the re assessment from two years ago, so theyve really had three rate increases as far as tax es, re assessment and the millage rate. City council approves increasing millage rate

and numerals as far as ten. Holding the paper up to Douglas, she asked him if he knew what they were; he proudly answered in the afrmative, not suspecting anything. She then asked him to name the letters and numerals, which he did, she then asked him to write them, which he did. When he reached the number ten, very proud of his learning, she struck him a heavy blow across the face, saying to him If I ever catch you making another gure anywhere Ill cut off your right arm. Naturally Douglas and also her son Willie were much surprised as each thought what had been done was quite an achievement. She then called Mariah, the cook to bring a rope and tying the two of them to the old colonial post on the front porch, she took a chair and sat between the two, whipping them on their naked backs for such a time, that for two weeks their clothes stuck to their backs on the lacerated esh. To ease the soreness, Willie would steal grease from the house and together they would slip into the barn and grease each others backs. As to plantation life, Dorsey said that the slaves lived in quarters especially built for them on the plantation.

We continue that narrative today. He relates another incident in regard to his mistress as follows: To his mother and father was born a little baby boy, whose complexion was rather light. Mrs. Matair (Mattair, and so for all the following, EM) at once began accusing Colonel Matair as being the father of the child. Naturally the colonel denied, but Mrs. Matair kept harassing him about it until he nally agreed to his wifes desire and sold the child. It was taken from its moth ers breast at the age of eight months and auctioned off on the rst day of January to the highest bidder. The child was bought by a Captain Ross and taken across the Suwannee River into Hamilton County. Twenty years later he was located by his family, he was a grown man, married and farming. Young Douglas had the task each morning of carrying the Matair childrens books to school. Willie, a boy of eight would teach Douglas what he learned in school, nally Douglas learned the al phabet and numbers. In some way Mrs. Matair learned that Douglas was learning to read and write. One morning after breakfast she called her son Willie to the dining room where she was seated and then sent for Douglas to come there too. She then took a quill pen the kind used at that time, and began writing the alphabet leave for the elds at sun up and remain until sun-down, stopping only for a meal which they took along with them. Instead of having an overseer they had what was called a driver by the name of Januray[TR:?]. His duties were to get the slaves together in the morning and see that they went to the elds and assigned them to their tasks. He worked as the other slaves, though, he had more privileges. He would stop work at any time he pleased and go around to inspect the work of the others, and thus rest himself. Most of the orders from the master were issued to him. The crops consisted of cotton, corn, cane and peas, which was raised in abundance. We complete our study of Mr. Dorsey next week. Eric Musgrove can be reached at ericm@suwgov.org or 386-362-0564.

After honoring businesses in just two divisions Small and Large the past four years, the Chamber changed the format for this years banquet, which will be held Oct. 1, starting with social hour at 5:30 p.m. at the Suwan nee County Coliseum. Jimmy Norris, the Chambers execu tive director, said the change comes af ter the group looked at its membership and determined the two-tiered system wasnt appropriate. The break was at 50 employees and we decided that really wasnt a fair rep resentation because 90 percent of our members under 50 employees, Norris said, adding the Chamber wanted to make the change a year ago but didnt have time to add the additional division. It was something that had been set up that way. The new groupings include approxi mately 1/3 of the Chambers members in each category, Norris said. The winner of the Chambers rst Medium-Sized Business of the Year will be either All Decked Out, J. Sher man Frier & Associates or McCrimons Ofce Supply, which are the three nalists. The nalists for the Small Business of the Year award are The Music Cen ter, Precision Dentistry of Live Oak and Skinners Auto Body. The Large Business of the Year nal ists are Tri-County Irrigation, Cheek & Scott Drugs and Walts Live Oak Ford. The Chamber will also be recog nizing the Non-Prot of the Year this year and those nalists are Love, INC, the Pregnancy Care Center and Vivid Visions. We have about 40 non-prots and they do a lot of great work in the com munity and need to be recognized as well, Norris said. The nalists were chosen by a com mittee, which includes past winners, based on nominations from community members. Norris said the only criteria for being eligible to win is the business must be a member of the Chamber. We had more businesses nominated this year than in any of the previous years, Norris said, adding the com mittee members each vote separately. (The committee) then decides who they feel did the best job that year and they look at longevity, sustainability, community service, all kinds of differ ent criteria. The banquet is sponsored by the Suwannee County Economic Devel opment Ofce and RIVEROAK Tech nical College serves once again as a partner for the event. Last years winners were Farmers Cooperative (Small Business of the Year) and Busy Bee (Large Business of the Year). Its going to be a great event, Nor ris said. We anticipate it being bigger than last year. We just want to thank our business es for what they do. Its a big deal. Tickets are available at the Chamber, which is located at 212 N. Ohio Ave., or by calling 386-362-3071. rffnntb rbnbb tntbbb tfn bbrbntnnb bbbtnt bbnb bbntntbn btbbbnnn tbtrnbttb nbbtntbn bn tnbntfn bbbbnbnbb b tnnnrbbn bbnbr bnbnrnrbrn nrbnbbbn nbbnr bnnbbbbrr bbbbbrrbb bb nbnr nbr bnbtb bbnnbb nbrf ftttnbnn rfntfrbnrnf rfntb rbbb rbbrrbr rr rfbfntbbrb rbbfbb bfbr bbrrbrf ntbb nrrfbf brbbb bbrfntbr rfbfbr b bfbbfrbbr bbbbbrbrf rbbr rbrfrfrbfrb ffrbr rfntrrrb r ffnfftfbfff btf bt rn fft fbfbff ffff fb fbfnf btffff fff ttft tfft nfftf nfrt ffftfrf Wild Adventures announces Alligator Alley addition VALDOSTA, Ga.

Opinion SERVING SUWANNEE COUNTY SINCE 1884 A PAGE 6 rfrfnftrbfbf ftfrrbfbf FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2018 Members of the Suwannee Democrat editorial board are Jeff Masters, Publisher, and Jamie Wachter, Editor. Masters and Wachter are joined on the board by community members Jim Holmes, Bruce Kemmerer and Otha White Sr. WASHINGTON The be ginning of another academic year brings the certainty of campus episodes illustrating what Daniel Patrick Moynihan, distinguished professor and venerated politician, called the leakage of reality from American life. Colleges and uni versities are increasingly suscep tible to intellectual fads and political hysteria, partly because the institu tions employ so many people whose talents, such as they are, are extrane ous to the institutions core mission: scholarship. Writing last April in the Chronicle of Higher Edu cation, Lyell Asher, professor of English at Lewis & Clark College, noted that the kudzu-like growth of the administrative bureaucracy in higher education is partly a response to two principles now widely ac cepted on campuses: Anything that can be construed as bigotry and hatred should be so construed, and any thing construed as such should be considered evidence of an epidemic. Often, Asher noted, a majority of the academic bureaucrats directly involved with students, from dorms to bias response teams to freshman ori entation (which often means political indoctrination), have graduate degrees not in academic disciplines but from education schools with two mutually reinforc ing characteristics: ideological orthodoxy and low academic standards for degrees in vaporous subjects like educational leadership or higher-education management. The problem is not anti-intellectualism but the un-intellectualism of a growing cohort of persons who, lacking talents for or training in scholarship, nd vocations in micromanaging student behavior in order to combat imagined threats to social justice. Can anyone on a campus say anything sensible about how the adjective modies the noun? Never mind. As Asher said, groupthink and political intimidation inev itably result from this ever-thickening layer of people with status anxieties because they are parasitic off in stitutions with scholarly purposes. The Manhattan Institutes Heather Mac Donald says that between the 1997-1998 academic year and the Great Recession year of 2008-2009, while the University of California student population grew 33 percent and tenure-track faculty grew 25 percent, se nior administrators grew 125 percent. The ratio of senior managers to professors climbed from 1 to 2.1 to near-parity of 1 to 1.1. In her just-published book The Diversity Delusion: How Race and Gender Pandering Corrupt the Univer sity and Undermine Our Culture, Mac Donald writes that many students have become what tort law practi tioners call eggshell plaintiffs, people who make a cult of fragility being triggered (i.e., traumatized) by this or that idea of speech. Asher correctly noted that the language of triggering converts students into objects for the sake of rendering their reactions ob jective, and by extension valid: A students triggered response is no more to be questioned than an apples falling downward or a sparks ying upward. So the number of things not to be questioned on campuses multiplies. Students encouraged to feel fragile will learn to recoil from microaggressions so micro that few can discern them. A University of California guide to microaggressions gave these examples of insensitive speech: I believe the most qualied person should get the job and Everyone can succeed in this soci ety if they work hard enough. Fragile students are encouraged in narcissistic victimhood by adminis trators whose vocation is to tend to the injured. These administrators are, Mac Donald argues, determined to preserve in many of their students the thin skin and solipsism of adolescence. Nowadays, radical intellectuals who are eager to be transgressive have difculty nding remaining social rules and boundaries to transgress: When all icons have been smashed, the iconoclasts lot is not a happy one. Similarly, academic administrators whose mission is the elimination of racism have difculty nding any in colleges and universities whose student admissions and faculty hiring practices are shaped by the relentless pursuit of diversity. Explicit racism having been substantially reduced in American society, a multi-billion-dollar industry for consultants (and corporate diversity ofcers, aca demic deans, etc.: UCLAs vice chancellor for equity, diversity and inclusion earns more than $400,000) has developed around testing to detect implicit bias. It is assumed to be ubiquitous until proven otherwise, so detecting it is steady work: Undetectable without arcane tests and expensive experts, you never know when it has been expunged, and government supervi sion of everything must be minute and unending. And always there is a trickle of peculiar language. The associate vice chancellor and dean of students at the University of California, Berkeley where the Division of Equity and Inclusion has a staff of 150 urges students to listen with integrity. If you do not understand the peculiar patois spoken by the acade mys administrators, try listening with more integrity. George Wills email address is georgewill@wash post.com.

If the con straints are not enough, write a letter to the editor. Per South Africa should follow Mandelas principles, September 5, 2018 Walter Williams knows what people should do. Donald Trump recently mentioned South Africa. ( just thought Id throw that irrelevancy in, Williams style) Walter Williams in his contemporary analysis of South Africa, alludes to one Andrew Kenny. Thats interesting. Maybe youll nd out out why. What caught my eye was a reference to Kenneys 2001 article, Black people arent animals. That confusion about the biology of us all was highlighted by Kennys reference to Liber als, and the worlds leftists and how they love zebras best. Thats the kind of divisive innuendo Dr. Williams pro motes. The question are. why does Dr. Williams make and repeat unsupportable statements about race and viewpoint, what does South Africa have to do with it, and why is a single statement at the tail of his article the only reference to Nelson Mandela? This is to the gentleman who continues to berate Profes sor Walter Williams. Please, if you dont agree with him stop reading his articles. Also, please understand that a lot of us folks dont agree with you, but we arent constantly writing to praise him. It would serves us all if you will keep your Liberal opinions to yourself. You certainly have a Right to your own opinion, 1st Amendment. Just dont continue to belabor the subject. If you should care about my opinion, I know that Professor Williams is correct and to the point. Many thanks to the many businesses, non-prots, hospi tals, logisticians, rst responders, communication facilities, etc. that are involved in the preparation, execution and response to the countrys natural disasters. While FEMA is there for us, much of its work is done by contracts with companies. Hopefully, all of the actions will be well coor dinated!

If roasted just a few minutes too long, pork can quickly dry out. But in his book Cooking Slow: Reci pes for Slowing Down and Cooking More (Chronicle Foods), au thor, teacher and food industry consultant Andrew Schloss notes that immersing pork loin in an oil bath protects it from dry ing out, resulting in a juicy, delicious meal. Those who want to try this method can whip up Schlosss recipe for Slow-Fried Pork Loin in Mustard Oil. Slow-Fried Pork Loin in Mustard Oil Makes 6 servings Ingredients; fat and silver skin per Directions; Rub the pork with the salt and pepper. Set on a rack on a baking sheet and re hours. Combine the oil and mustard seed in a Dutch oven and place over medium heat ing thermometer. A wooden chopstick or the end of a wooden spoon inserted into the oil will emit bubbles when the oil is at the right temperature. While the oil is heating, remove the pork from the refrigerator. Pat dry. When the oil is up to temperature, turn off the heat. Using tongs, carefully submerge the meat in the hot oil. Cover the pot, transfer to the oven and cook Lift the pork from the oil onto a bak ing sheet to catch any oil drips. Carve the pork across the grain on the diago nal into thin slices. Drizzle with some of the mustard-scented oil and serve.

Williams was in his ofce at the police station, then in the old City Hall building on the corner of Duval St. and Ohio Ave. Williams recalls hearing the screeching of tires as someone pulled up next to the building and burst in to share the news. This man just runs inside and says, Do you have a television? Were under attack, Williams said recalling that they turned on the TV and watched the second plane hit the tower at the World Trade Center. It changed the course of the day. Thats all we did, stuck right there glued to the TV for hours on end. There was a feeling of helplessness, a feeling of disgust and then anger. It all happens at the same time. Its like it was yes terday even though it was 17 years ago. * Tiffany Horn was a sophomore in high school in Michigan when the at tacks occurred. There wasnt much school work done that fate ful Tuesday. Horn said they were actually directed by the schools principal not to do any regular school work that day. Instead all the classrooms turned on the news so the students and teachers could watch what was unfolding in New York and Washington D.C. We were just to watch and observe all day what had happened, Horn said. We werent supposed to do any kind of academic work. We were just to watch. If any of us had questions or concerns, teachers and counselors were there. It denitely had an im pact on us. * Seventeen years later, that impact remains.

He said his 6-year-old son wanted to know why Croft was wearing his dress uniform Tuesday morning while they were on the way to school. So Croft shared the story of 9-11. Throughout the year I probably dont talk about it a lot, but he thought it was very interesting and it helped him to understand what was going on, Croft said. It is very key that we dont ever forget what happened on this day. Its important not to forget those who gave their lives on this day to help someone.

Series history: Lafayette leads 9-4 since 2005. Last Meeting: A 48-20 LHS win last season. Notes: After putting up some crazy stats on offense the first two weeks of the season, the Hornets came back to down to earth last week with a loss to Chiefland. That loss makes todays game against Jefferson County a lot more interesting. Jefferson County (1-1) has thrown for almost 500 yards in two games, but has struggled on defense. Sports SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2018 7:30 P.M. RIBAULT AT SUWANNEE THIS WEEKS SCHEDULE 7:30 P.M. LAFAYETTE AT JEFFERSON Paul Buchanan (suwanneesports.com) Jay Williams makes the tackle against Yulee. L IVE OAK If you look closely at Suwannee Highs football uniforms, there is a word inked on the undershirt of Bulldog players: Grit. Not only does the word that appears on the players right sleeve, its also the attitude that SHS coach Kyler Hall wants his team to take into each game this sea son. That grit starts in the trenches with defensive lineman Jay Williams. The senior leader plays with an exuberance and toughness that fuels Suwannees defense. Everybody says I play with my heart, said Williams, who isnt shy about show ing his emotions and getting pumped up after a big tackle. You can tell on the field. Its easy to see Williams exuberance with his recognizable celebrations after a big play. But with Williams excitement also comes hustle and toughness. Williams has a non-stop motor he is full-speed on every play and never wants to miss a down. If an opposing offensive player gets past Suwannees first line of defense, Williams hustle allows him to get back in the play and make tackles from behind. A good example was in Suwannees win against Fort White in Week 1. With Fort White threatening inside the red zone in the second quarter, Williams made a great tackle on a fourth-down play during an important stretch of the game. What looked to be an easy first down for the Indians Aaron Byrne caught a screen pass with plenty of room to run in front of him was blown up as Williams sprinted to make the tackle and end the drive. Williams leads SHS defense with energy, toughness Series history: 3-3 since 2009 Last Meeting: Ribault returned two punts for touchdowns in a 33-26 win at Suwannee last season. Notes: Its the biggest game of the season for both teams. Not to discredit Yulee or any other team in District 3-5A, but the winner of this game is very likely to wind up as district champion. Originally scheduled to be played at RHS, the game was moved to Paul Langford Stadium. Its going to be a battle of youth vs. experience as a veteran Suwannee squad goes against the young, but talented, Trojans. Suwannee is experienced in all position groups. The Bulldogs have moved well on offense with junior quarterback Tyree Taylor running the show. Carlton Hall is averaging 98 yards rushing per game while receivers Jaquez Moore and Jaquary Pratt have demonstrated their playmaking ability on the outside. Defensively, the Bulldogs start nine seniors. Ribault has faced tough competition the first three games with losses to Sandalwood, Trinity Christian and Baker County. Sophomore quarterback Santana Jackson threw a touchdown pass in Ribaults 8-6 loss to BCHS last week. Paul Buchanan (suwanneesports.com) Series history: Trenton leads 21-10 since 1983 Last Meeting: The Tigers won 40-0 last season. Notes: This could be a season-defining game for the Buccaneers, who are 1-1 and coming off a bye week. Branford hasnt beaten Trenton since 2009 and the Bucs havent scored on the Tigers since 2012. The Tigers are 0-3 to start the season and have been outscored 118-6. Jordan Fulmer leads THS with 142 yards rushing. Branford is led in the backfield by Aaron McQuay (113 yards rushing) and Dakota Hamm (143 yards rushing). 7:30 P.M. TRENTON AT BRANFORD Series history: Hamilton County leads 11-9 since 1980 Last Meeting: Chiefland won 10-0 at HCHS. Notes: Chiefland is off to a great start at 3-0 and has won by an average of 32.33 points per game. The Indians have been able to run the ball successfully and also dominate with their defense. Hamilton County has not scored in three games. 7:30 P.M. HAMILTON CO. AT CHIEFLAND STATISTICALLY SPEAKING A look at the statistical leaders across the Suwannee Valley in passing, rushing and receiving (based on yardage) through the first two weeks of the 2018 season.

Although hes extremely talented, Wil liams, a two-year starter, has improved a lot to get to the level he is at now. He attributes his success to learning from some players before him. Weve always had a good defensive line that I could learn from, Williams said. My first year it was Jadames and Tez and last year it was Terrec and Rafael. Going against some good offensive lineman in practice also helped. Being worked by the starting offensive line Kendall Croft, Rafael Martinez and sometimes Cody Daniel, Williams said made him a better player. It started with footwork and tech nique. There are high expectations for Williams and the Bulldogs this year. Although SHS is only returning about half of it starters on both offense and defense from 2017, this is an experi enced group filled with seniors. The Bulldogs havent been able to win some of the big district games in the past two years to reach the playoffs, but they are hoping for a different result this time around. It starts Friday as SHS hosts Ribault. Some people will be scared. Games like this get me excited, Williams said. I live for this.
