Martin, candidate for Florida State House District 10. I ran for Sheriff of Suwannee County in 2012 and 2016. I have Police Ethics, and their Oath, periodically published in the Swapper, since 2013. Florida is a balanced-bud get State with no income tax; property, goods, and services are taxed to raise revenue to pay for State services. Legislators have to tax something or cut money from an existing State service, to pay for new services. I have gured out a way to pay for what I propose without cutting other services to do it.

MAYO The Board of Directors of Lafayette State Bank announced the election of Chan Perry as Senior Loan Ofcer last week. Chan is a true asset to the bank and we are pleased to announce this promotion Jim Esry, President and CEO of Lafayette State Bank, said in a release. Perry, a lifelong resident of Mayo, joined the bank in December 2014 as a Commercial Loan Ofcer and Branch Manager. During his time at the bank he has maintained that title and also served as the Branch Man ager at the Bell ofce. As the bank grew Perry was moved back to the Mayo ofce to focus on Commercial Lending. He grew into a leadership position at the bank and has clearly demon strated his ability to lead the lending function for the entire bank. Perry is active in the community as a member of the Mayo Rotary Club, former board member for the Lafay ette County Babe Ruth, former board member of North Florida Community College Foundation and attends the Alton Church of God. He is a graduate of the University of Florida and is currently attending the Florida School of Banking. I am excited and humbled with this promotion, Perry said in the release. The bank has come through some hard times, but I see nothing but greatness for the bank as it moves forward. I am equally excited about our current capital raise; it is important to me to keep and maintain a community owned community bank in this area. I like nothing more than to help farmers and small businesses succeed in the community where I live. Lafayette State Bank is currently selling new stock in the bank to facilitate keeping the bank a locally-owned community bank. Esry also commented that Perry is the right person at the right time to help lead the bank into the future. Chan Perry named Lafayette State Banks Senior Loan Ofcer b

Fall Yard Sale to be held Oct. 6 David Anthony Osebold Mar. 23, 1943 Sept. 6, 2018 Dave passed at home, sud denly and unexpectedly from heart failure. His beloved wife of 44 years, Joni Anne, was by his side. I wish to express my gratitude to the EMTs and doctors at Shands Live Oak Hospital for their compassion and val iant attempt to resuscitate him. Dave considered his proudest accomplishment in life was helping to raise his adopted grandson, Chase Michael Smith who has grown to become a ne, responsible young man, thanks to Daves love and devotion. Dave and Joni also have an adopted granddaughter, Amanda Joy Thrasher who has become a beautiful young lady desiring to become a missionary. Dave never forgot his poor, humble upbringing and couldnt ignore friends, neighbors, and even strangers in need. He volunteered; he built shelters on his property and rescued dozens of cats destined for untimely death. Dave grew up in Michigan a large family of siblings, and nieces and nephews; he adored children, though he had none of his own. When Dave and Joni lived in Fort Lauderdale, they attended First Baptist Church in West Hollywood, Flor ida. They both accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior on September 30, 1980. They participated in the childrens bus ministry for 10 years. Also at this time, they taught Sun day School for 6-year olds for over three years. Dave would not hesitate to witness to all he met of the Sal vation for all in Christ Jesus and pray with them. Even in death, he wished to keep helping others and ar ranged for his body to be donated to Shands UF of Gaines ville for teaching and research. Dave did not treasure a lot of fanfare, so there will not be a wake or funeral, as per his wishes. Cremation will be handled by Shands UF of Gaines ville, Florida, with his ashes returned to his wife. Dave and Joni chose Live Oak as their home for 27 years, and were members of Tabernacle Baptist in Live Oak.

As we watch what is left of Hur ricane Florence swamp large areas of North and South Carolina, it is easy to forget how much mother nature does for us. While the news will showcase all of the destruction that Florence has caused, there will be areas along the storms path that might have needed some extra rain. In my few years of writing this col umn, I have covered both droughts and oods. No one ever talks about the areas that are getting exactly the right amount of rain at exactly the right time. Unfortunately for the Carolinas, Florence is not coming at a time that will provide drought relief. They have had a wet summer much like we have had. The more than 30 inches of rain that some areas have already received has nowhere to go. The already swollen rivers are being further backed up by the storm surge that hit the coast as Florence approached. So many roads are ooded that people are asked to avoid North Carolina if possible. Travelers on I-95 had to detour because large sections of the interstate were ooded. One silver lining for the area was that the storm was downgraded to a Category 2 be fore landfall. Florence had been as strong as a Category 4. The destruction and ooding would have been even worse if the storm had struck as a Category 4. One area that was severely affected was Fayetteville, N.C. Parts of the city were under evacuation orders, and I-95 was under water just north of the city. While Fay etteville is best known as the home of Fort Bragg, anoth er interesting fact about the town is that it is where I was born. It will be sad to see the ooding that will continue to occur in that area as rivers continue to rise to levels not seen in decades. I was reminded of one of natures gifts this past week. I noticed a vine in my yard that looked very similar to the wild grape vines that are found all around North Florida. One big difference was that instead of grapes hanging from the vine there were singular fruits that looked like baby watermelons. I asked everyone that I thought might know what this wild vine was. No one had seen it be fore. Luckily, a picture of the vine made it to the county extension agent, who identied the vine to be a creeping cucumber. If you nd any creeping cucumbers in your yard, they are edible if the fruit is still young and bright green. I have eaten several from my yard and they are very tasty. I have learned that once the fruit matures and turns a darker color it is a strong laxative. I do not plan on test ing this part of the plants effects. I did not have to plant or care for this food, but nature provided it for any ani mals that might need a snack. It can be very hard sometimes, but try not to stop look ing for the small blessings that can be found all around us. Eric lives in Suwannee County and is a public school educator.

Opinion A PAGE 6 rfrfnftrbfbf ftfrrbfbf Finding the silver lining So much of our reasoning about race is both emotional and faulty. In ordinary, as well as profession al, conversation, we use terms such as discrimination, prejudice, racial preferences and racism interchange ably, as if they referred to the same behavior. We can avoid many pitfalls of misguided thinking about race by establishing operational denitions so as to not confuse one behavior with another. Discrimination can be operation ally dened as an act of choice. Our entire lives are spent choosing to do or not to do thousands of activities. Choosing requires non-choosing. When you chose to read this column, you discriminated against other possible uses of your time. When you chose a spouse, you discriminat ed against other people. When I chose Mrs. Williams, I systematically discriminated against other women. Much of it was racial. Namely, I discriminated against white women, Asian women, fat women and women with crim inal backgrounds. In a word, I didnt offer every woman an equal opportunity, and they didnt offer me an equal opportunity. One might be tempted to argue that racial discrimina tion in marriage is trivial and does not have important social consequences, but it does. When high-IQ and high-income people marry other high-IQ and high-income people, and to the extent there is a racial correlation be tween these characteristics, racial discrimination in mate selection enhances the inequality in the populations intel ligence and income distribution. There would be greater income equality if high-IQ and high-income people mar ried low-IQ and low-income people. But I imagine that most people would be horried by the suggestion of a mandate to require the same. Prejudice is a perfectly useful term, but it is used improperly. Its Latin root is praejudicium meaning prejudgment. Prejudice can be operationally dened as making decisions on the basis of incomplete information. Because the acquisition of information entails costs, we all seek to economize on information cost. Sometimes we use cheap-to-observe physical attributes as proxies for some other attribute more costlier to observe. The cheaply observed fact that a person is a male or female can serve as a proxy for an unobserved attribute such as strength, aggressiveness or speed in running. In the late 1990s, a black taxi commissioner in Wash ington, D.C., warned cabbies against going into low-in come black neighborhoods and picking up danger ous-looking passengers whom she described as young black males dressed a certain way. Some pizza deliverers in St. Louis who were black complained about delivering pizzas to black neighborhoods for fear of being assaulted or robbed. In 1993, the Rev. Jesse Jackson was reported as saying that he is relieved when he learns that youthful footsteps walking behind him at night are white and not black. Heres the question: Does the wariness of Washingtons predominantly black cabbies to pick up dangerous-look ing black males or black pizza deliverers not wanting to deliver to some black neighborhoods or Rev. Jacksons feeling a sense of relief when the youthful footsteps be hind him are those of white youngsters instead of black say anything unambiguous about whether cabbies, pizza deliverers and Jackson like or dislike blacks? Its a vital and often overlooked point namely, that watching a persons prejudicial (prejudging) behavior alone can tell us nothing unambiguous about that persons racial tastes or preferences. Consider policing. Suppose a chief of police is trying to capture culprits who break in to autos to steal electronic equipment. Suppose further that you see him focusing most of his investigative resources on young males be tween the ages of 15 and 25. He spends none of his in vestigative resources on females of any age and very few on men who are 40 or older. By watching his proling behavior prejudging behavior would you conclude that he likes females and older males and dislikes males between the ages of 15 and 25? I think that it would take outright idiocy to reach such a conclusion. The police chief is simply playing the odds based on the evidence he has gathered through experience that breaking in to autos tends to be a young mans fancy. Walter E.

As a public body, the council members should instead be eager to hear from those peo ple that elected them into office. The residents shouldnt be viewed as mere spectators who are allowed to watch the council do the towns business. That business is the peoples business. There is no legal right to speak at the meet ings, and no strict requirements for how public comments at meetings should be handled. But who benefits when the publics voice is suppressed? Not the town. And definitely not the resi dents. At the Sept. 11 council meeting, Lofton de clared during one contentious portion of the meeting, I sat here and listened to everyone of you, with the exception of the audience. Why does Lofton or any elected official not want to hear from the public? Then, when residents tried to comment on agenda items or ask questions, Lofton had them removed from the meeting. Elected officials should care and care deeply about and want to hear from their constituents. Asking a question on an item is not a disrup tion. It also shouldnt be the basis for being kicked out of a town meeting. Trying to add insight on a topic the council is discussing is not being disruptive or be grounds for being removed from town hall. But it appears to us that Lofton views the residents of White Springs as just an audience, someone to be seen and not heard from. We afforded them the opportunity to speak, Lofton told councilwoman Helen Miller during the meeting. They elected you as an elected representative to represent them. Their voice is being put out to them. The public also elected him. And the other three council members. But that is not where their voice should end. Lofton claimed at the end of the meeting he doesnt want to remove members of the public from the meeting room. We urge him to follow through and let the public be involved and be heard.

SEPTEMBER 19 & 20, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 8A Around the Banks Begin at the beginning Begin at the beginning, the King said, very gravely, and go on till you come to the end: then stop. | Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland I have been watching with interest the PBS series about the best loved books, ctional books, as given by various ce lebrities. There is a poll that gives indi viduals the opportunity to vote on their favorite book. We live in a day and age where tech nology is lightning fast and everything is instantaneous and yet amidst this whirlwind of change, it is comforting and reassuring to know that we can sit down with a good book and escape into another world for a short time and, if we are vo racious readers, we nd in reading a joy that is a part of our lives as long as our vision holds. I was interested in seeing what some of the most popular books of all time were in the United States of America so I went to a list combined by Time Magazine. This is what I found: 1. To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee; 2. by George Orwell; 3. The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkein; 4. The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger; 5. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitz gerald; 6. The Lion the Witch, and the Wardrobe: Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis; 7. Lord of the Flies by William Golding; 8. Animal Farm by George Orwell; 9. Catch 22 by Joseph Heller; 10. The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck; I dont know if I agree with Times list. I have compiled a list of my own and these are my top 10 and most are by Florida authors. I encourage each of you to read them if you havent. Learn about your state before drifting out, but be sure and branch out. 1. Florida: A Land Remembered by Patrick Smith; 2. Everglades: River of Grass by Marjorie Stoneman Douglas; 3. A Memory of A Large Christmas by Lillian Smith; 4. Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston; 5. Palmetto Country by Stetson Ken nedy; 6. Tourist Season by Carl Hiassen; 7. South Moon Under by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings; 8. Flamingo Road by Robert Wilder; 9. A Death in Live Oak by James Grippando; 10. Get Shorty by Elmore Leonard. I would encourage the public libraries to encourage the reading of the classics and to watch the PBS series and perhaps sponsor a contest throughout the Suwan nee River Regional System and compile the results of what patrons consider the top 5 favorite American novels of all time. The results would probably be in teresting and indicative of many factors. It would also tell a lot of about what might be read and predict what might be of interest to many readers. I am so thankful we live in a nation with so many good writers and good books. If I ever want to lose myself for a period of time, I drive, and I am sorry I have to do this, to Valdosta or Gaines ville or Tallahassee, and immerse myself for several hours at a good book store. If I dont elect to drive to one of these towns, I can do the same at one of our local libraries. I cannot emphasize enough the impor tance of reading. Reading is the founda tion block for a good education. I heard a seasoned educator for whom I have a lot of respect say If a child learns to read and read well, he or she can achieve an education. If a child doesnt learn to read and read well, he or she will receive schooling. Theres a lot of truth to those statements. Reading takes an investment of time and effort. I have a friend who has two children very close in age. I can still see her during the days of their childhood reading to them before they went to sleep at night. She pulled a chair in the middle of the hall so both children could hear her, and she would read. Parents can infuse a love of learning to their children. Research indi cates that the education level of a childs mother does more to predict how far that child will go on for post-secondary edu cation than any other factor. Think about that one. The local public libraries offer so much from which we can choose. We need to utilize them. In Suwannee County, the Suwannee River Regional Library sys tem has branches in Live Oak, Branford and Dowling Park. In Hamilton County, library branches are located in Jasper, White Springs and Jennings. As the fall season begins on Sept. 23, 2018, it is a good season to Fall into good books and into reading. Before closing this week, I would re mind my readers that White Springs Unit ed Methodist Church will have its annual Fall Yard Sale on Saturday, Oct. 6, 2018, from 9 a.m. till 2 p.m. Many wonderful items for sale at great prices. The church is located on the corner of U.S. 41 and Wesson Avenue in White Springs, Flori da. Come join us. In closing, there is a wonderful poem I will share that means so much: The Reading Mother By Strickland Gillilan I had a mother who read to me Sagas of pirates who scoured the sea, Cutlasses clenched in their yellow teeth, Blackbirds stowed in the hold be neath. I had a Mother who read me lays Of ancient and gallant and golden days; Stories of Marmion and Ivanhoe, Which every boy has a right to know. I had a Mother who read me tales Of Gelert the hound of the hills of Wales, True to his trust till his tragic death, Faithfulness blent with his nal breath. I had a Mother who read me the things That wholesome life to the boy heart brings-Stories that stir with an upward touch, Oh, that each mother of boys were such! You may have tangible wealth untold; Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold. Richer than I you can never be I had a Mother who read to me.

SEPTEMBER 19 & 20, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 9A Healthy Living Why we need tness friends Writing this weeks article early Sunday afternoon while waiting for my daughter to arrive. Saturday, my husband and I attend ed a beautiful wedding and had a blast with important friends in our lives. Today will be spent with my daughter and her boy friend. They will be here for the evening and head back to Tallahassee on Monday afternoon. My most memorable and fun weekends are always spent with family and friends. You can say that about most things ac tually. Work is more fun when you have a friend to chat with on and off throughout the day. Running errands or doing chores is more enjoyable when you have a partner in crime. And when you have a tness buddy, its not quite as difcult to get your daily walk in or go the gym. Why? Like anything, exercise is more fun when youre doing it with a friend. In addition to having fun with our tness friends, they are important for helping keep us on track. Even as a tness instructor, there are days where I really want to stay in bed. If it were not for the amazing peo ple in my morning tness classes, I would BUT I get up and get moving because I know I will feel much better after the rst class. Your tness friends wont buy your lame excuses either. And admit it. It is easy to come up with some pretty lame excuses to avoid exercise on days when you have too much to do or you are feeling too tired. None of us are perfect and there will be days when we do not want to exercise. But having a tness friend waiting for you, will make it more likely that you will show up. Fitness friends mo tivate and push you too. Even if you are not the least bit com petitive, when you have been exercising consistently with your friend and they are walking faster or able to go up a weight in dumbbells, it moti vates you to do the same. After all, we do not want to be left behind right? Did you know that more than 40 per cent of folks that start at the gym, attend a class or try a new sport will quit if they are doing it alone? But if they are working out with a friend, the dropout rate is only 6 percent. Thats huge and a great incentive to nd that buddy to workout with. The folks in my morning Silver Sneakers class are living proof. They come to class not only to exercise but to see their friends too. If there were only two things I would tell you to do, they would be to exercise and nd a friend to exercise with you. Have a wonderful week.

The deeper you study, the more apparent it is that human nature doesnt change no matter the century. As we return to our study of Esther this week, I cant wait to show you a very signicant truth from these pages written so long ago that readily applies to our lives today. Last week, we enjoyed a front row seat at the feast given by King Ahasuerus, the ruler of Persia. As the feast winds down, the drama winds up. (Not surprising after a sixmonth party!) Esther 1:10 tells us that on the last day of the feast, when the King was feeling good from the wine he ordered his servants to bring Queen Vashti before him so that he could show off her beauty to the people and the ofcials. However, it seems the King sobered up quickly when Vashti refused to come. Scripture doesnt give her reason only that she refused. Which made the King furious. Despite his anger, King Ahasuerus consulted his advisors before reacting, and asked this question, According to the law, what should be done with Queen Vashti, since she refused to obey King Ahasueruss command that was delivered by the servants? (Esther 1:15). Before we read on, I wonder what your thoughts are. In our culture, we might not think too much of a wife disagreeing with her husband. In fact, we might get a little irritated at a husband who ordered his wife around. But lets look a little deeper at this situation. Despite the King and Queens relationship as husband and wife (thats another story), they were both in positions of leadership in the Kingdom. Positions of responsibility require sacrice. This means that in such a position, there is a responsi bility for how your decisions, words and actions affect others. Sadly, it seems that many in positions of responsibility today have forgotten this principle and refuse to consider the account ability they have to those they serve. King Ahasueruss advisors addressed this very issue: Queen Vashti has wronged not only the king, but all the ofcials and the people who are in every one of King Ahasueruss prov inces. For the queens action will become public knowledge to all the women and cause them to despise their husbands (Esther 1:16-17). We cannot deny the actions of those in public positions affect the attitudes of the general public. Before we point all of our ngers at ce lebrities, sports stars and political leaders, lets take a look around our own back door: in the position of parent, do you expect your children to do what you say and not what you do? In your work position, are you the kind of employee that you would hire if you were the boss? As a member of a group or organization, are you a contrib uting member or one who only enjoys the benets? Know that your actions affect those around you, and that you have a responsibility to them to act in a way that encourages their right behavior instead of causing them to despise doing right. God allows us opportunities to serve others that come with blessings for ourselves. Lets be careful not to expect those bless ings without any sacrice on our part. Because every heart matters.

Town Attorney Kevin Daly told the council that while its OK for some one to gamble online, its illegal to have a site that conducts internet gambling in Florida. The ordinance would just state that nobody can establish a location for internet gambling in the town. This law may change, but there is no indication itll change now, Daly advised the council. The ordinance calls for a 12-month moratorium with automatic six-month extensions, while provid ing the council the power to amend the moratorium later. The council unanimous ly passed the ordinance. It also unanimously passed an ordinance plac ing a 12-month moratori um on medical marijuana dispensaries in the town as well. Daly said a recent court decision declared the medical marijuana stat ute was unconstitutional, and with that decision he was advising the council to enact the moratorium, which also includes two automatic six-month ex tensions. The ordinance also would allow the coun cil the opportunity that when the court decision is cleared up to extend the moratorium in order to allow a land development planner time to determine the best location for a possible dispensary in the town. You have a further period that you can deter mine where you want it in the town, Daly said. Councilman Matt Burns said that just moving for ward at that time with de termining what zoning lo cation a dispensary would go, doesnt automatically mean one would be estab lished. We just need to have somewhere available in case someone does want to put one in, he said. Daly agreed. Councilman Charlie Daniel asked if the statute was declared unconstitu tional what did that mean for the amendment that Florida voters passed in 2016 to legalize medical marijuana. Daly said that the refer endum was ne, one provi sion of the statute was not. The idea that you can smoke a joint, thats the thing, Daly said. I think the issue, Char lie, is that provisions of the statute may not have conformed with what was passed by the people. Thats what theyre work ing out now. Continued From Page 1A Branford What happened with me was I felt I was get ting roped in years ago, he said Sunday following the conclusion on another camps concert about that initial class. In that rst hour, were playing a song together. I havent been the same since. The camp, which started in 2003 and is now held three or four times a year, has that affect on people. I saw that group of kids grow up and some of them became good musicians, some of them didnt, Dame added. All of them got a benet from being here and taking part in that interaction. Over the time, weve seen so many kids blos som into incredible human beings along with being great, great musicians as well. The camp also allows some of those musicians the opportunity to become the teachers as well. In the drum class, in structor Jason (Stymie) Rossignol allowed 15-yearold student Ronan Daar to help guide and direct. Daar, from Lake City, has been attending the camp for 10 years. When I was 5, my mom signed me up for guitar, Daar said. I kind of ran into drum class not know ing where I was. He hasnt left since, say ing his favorite part of the camp and the class is that its drums. Rossignol also gets a benet out of the camp, which he has helped with for 10 years now. I dont get, the best way to put it, is I dont have the opportunity to drum in the outside drumming com munity, Rossignol said, adding when he worked at the Music Park he played quite often but now has kids and a job that make it more difcult. Its made me a better drummer. (Because other wise) I dont get to play. And while he gets to play during the three class sessions during the twoday camp, Rossignol also lets the advanced students like Daar take some of the lead. He said through his experience, it makes the class more enjoyable for the students. Its a low pressure class, he said. If you want to be all in it, thats ne. If you want to sit back, thats ne. If you Continued From Page 1A Camp It is a shame that Domestic Violence shelters and Home less shelters, have to beg for money from the public to be able to get a matching grant from the State. If they fall short in the dollar amount raised through fundraising, they do not get the matching grant! I propose legalizing prostitution. License fees and transaction fees could provide a dedicated source of money for the shelters; the tax will only be paid by those persons involved in, or using the services of, prostitution. Legalized pros titution will also cut down some of the exploitation, and other crimes, that occurs in this profession. The licensed prostitutes will also help po lice the profession (competi tion from the unlicensed). Needed: body cameras that cannot be turned off on law enforcement ofcers, 360 degree high denition cam eras on their vehicles, and data storage for the cameras; school security, that does not involve turning our schools into mini-prisons, and teacher pay raises. A consumption tax on legalized recreational marijuana can help fund these things. The tax is only paid by people using the product. South Florida should de salinate their water instead of stealing it from North Flori da. Stand Your Ground is balanced by Use A Gun and Youre Done, 10 20, Life. Retirees will not be able to afford to visit, or live in, Florida if minimum wage is raised; they will not cross the state line, cant afford it. Im a redneck, ugly and toothless and aint gonna get prettier before the election; I need your vote. Thank you. Fred S. Martin Continued From Page 1A Martin want to just sit on the drum and enjoy the aes thetics, thats ne too. I tried to change the class again and again, and it just doesnt work well. So I went back to the old class of On your mark, get set, drum. And that freedom to play and get the students involved in the instruction is what Dame said is the vision for the camp itself, which had around 100 stu dents attend Saturday and Sunday. Thats exactly the goal, he said. Thats what weve been trying to do all along. Because kids learn from other kids better than they learn from adults. We have adults there to kind of back up what the kid says, but if you have a kid telling another kid something, its the gospel. rfnttb tt Questions?

Most people are shocked when they nd out the cost of a nursing home any nursing home. Many people question whether the cost of operating the facility really matches up with the rates charged. What is re quired to provide the quality care you expect and deserve from a nursing home, and why are the rates so high? The answer is very complex. While there are many contributing factors, these ve are the biggest: 1) Regulations: The nursing home industry is one of the most-regulated industries in the US. Nearly every tiny detail of its operation must meet one or more of the numerous government regu lations imposed on the industry. That in cludes everything from stafng require ments to where the bed must be placed in the room. The many regulations are well intentioned and were put in place to pro tect patients from receiving substandard care. Unfortunately, these regulations are costly to administer. In addition, the cor responding fees required by the various oversight and provider agencies make up a major portion of overall nursing home costs. These regulations also increase the cost of the following four items. 2) Specialized staff: Operating a nurs ing home is extremely labor intensive. Providing skilled health care 24/7 re quires a large num ber of highly skilled health care profes sionals. These include certied nursing assis tants (CNAs); licensed practical nurses (LPNs); registered nurses; physical, oc cupational and speech therapists; as well a doctor to serve as medical director. Each of these professionals has various levels of education and expertise that require appropriate compensation. In the last few years, there has been and still is a severe shortage of health care employ ees, particularly CNAs and LPNs. The competition for available employees is erce, which greatly increases the wages and benets that must be offered to at tract and keep an adequate staff. Nursing homes also employ three other groups of individuals: First, the admin istrative employees required to maintain medical records, oversee admissions and discharges, and to keep up with patients who are admitted to and return from the hospital. Second, also required is social services staff to assist the residents and their families, and an activities staff to offer meaningful recreation and activities for the well-being of the residents. Third It costs how much to live in a nursing home? ly, the nursing home provides room and board for a very needy population. That requires a large staff for housekeeping, laundry and food service that provides three nutritious meals and snacks every day. Again, this represents a sizable number of employees and adds a signi cant amount to the overall cost. 3) Facility costs: Nursing home build ings and equipment must meet stringent construction and maintenance regu lations. That makes even the smallest renovation or revision lengthy, time-con suming and expensive. Nursing home facilities also need several features not required in single-family homes or apartments emergency call systems, emergency backup power, nurse stations, commercial kitchens and dining facili ties, etc. all of which are subject to governmental oversight of one kind or another. 4) Technology: The arrival of elec tronic medical records requires nursing homes to obtain hardware and software to facilitate the electronic collection, storing, distribution and protection of medical les. As with all technology, it is constantly changing. Investing in the latest software and/or hardware seldom provides long-term solutions. Tech com panies are continually upgrading their products. That means nursing homes must reinvest in the products, retrain its staff, and dispose of equipment that seldom wears out before it must be re placed. 5) Litigation: Unfortunately, the ease and frequency of lawsuits in our society also contribute to the cost of operating a nursing home. This cost can be in the form of increased insurance premiums, the cost of legal representation or the actual costs of settlements. Even the best nursing homes are subject to costly law suits that take a lot of time and effort to either litigate or settle. So, when the sticker shock subsides, I hope youll have a better understanding of why nursing home rates are higher than you may expect. Advent Christian Village does its very best to operate its skilled nursing community, Good Samar itan Center, as efciently and econom ically as possible. Our rates are truly a reection of the cost required to provide the compassionate care and quality ser vices your loved one expects and de serves. If you are ever in need of nursing home services, I encourage you to speak with the admissions staff at Good Samar itan Center to discuss the options avail able for assistance in paying for those services.

We cant show you the entire drawings but audiences can see the drawings in full at the lat est exhibit coming to the Dedo Maranville Fine Arts Gallery at Valdosta State University. It provides an anatomical map where the aging human body might be heading. This Acceptable Body: Large Scale Drawings on Ag ing and Nudism is a collec tion of nude drawings based on subjects who are 60 and older. The works are by Texas artist Ghislaine Fremaux and the exhibit opened Monday, Sept. 17, in the VSU Fine Arts Building gallery. This exhibition of very large average size: nine feet figurative drawings address the aging body and the practice of nudism, said Julie Bow land, VSU gallery director. Each drawing portrays a liv ing person, of age 60 or older, who is a resident in a nudist community in southern Texas. The work which is the culmination of an interdis ciplinary project between an artist and social scientist/ger ontologist intends to illumi nate the often-invisible aging body and its relationship to problems of the gaze, beauty, shame, health and death and dying. Fremaux works in vivid col ors with kinetic strokes. Given the subject matter and her vital style, the works are bold even reproduced at a smaller scale. But add the larger-than-life size of the full-body portraits, they can be staggering. Fremaux hides no details. She does not illustrate an idealized version of the aging body. She captures folds of fat, sagging skin, wrinkles, droop ing organs. Each pastel work is glazed in epoxy resin to add the illusion of clammy, sweaty flesh to the drawings. The aging body is largely invisible in American culture, renounced by putative models of beauty so essentially reliant upon trappings of ability and youth, Fremaux said in an artistic statement. Consumer cultures few meters of bodily value beauty, athleticism, work/labor and sexual viability cannot fathom the elderly body, and dismiss it as imma terial and strangely unreckon able. Bowland said the series is the result of an interdisciplin ary project examining the prac tice of social nudism among senior citizens, conceived and conducted by Fremaux with Dr. Jean Pearson Scott, a ger ontologist/social scientist. I attempt to evoke that very living body, Fremaux said. In amplified color and scale, at heights of seven to 10 feet, the invisible body of the aging person is made patently visi ble.

Buys an 8 by 12 four-bit room; Im a man of means by no means... King of the Road as performed by Roger Miller We are currently observing the 10th anniversary of the 2008 nancial crisis. Meanwhile, politicians and pundits spend more time arguing about who deserves credit for the economy than they do ac tually trying to sustainably improve it or prepare for the next downturn. Regard less of who does deserve credit, theres no doubt the economy is in better condi tion than it has been in a long time. But in recent years Ive increasingly come to think that were living in a two-tiered recovery. On the one hand, those with signicant investment assets, access to capital and nancial expertise made the last decade a productive one. A sustained period of historically low interest rates helped revive an economy on life support and handsomely rewarded those who were lured back into capital mar kets. Those skilled in buying and selling businesses, public and private, have been able to borrow more cheaply than at any time in history to nance their ventures. But there were many more citizens with out the means to benet from the improv ing economy. A statistic gleaned from the Federal Reserve speaks to this side of the twotiered recovery story, one which most of the folks I deal with are intuitively familiar: the percentage of the average familys income generated by wages has Financial crisis, wage stagnation and Roger Miller dropped nine percent in the last 15 years, falling from 70 to 61 percent. Whats re placed those wages? Investment income. But the problem with investment in come is that you have to actually own investments to earn it. The folks who dont own stocks or bonds or other types of nancial assets therefore havent expe rienced the same recovery as those who do. The old adage It takes money to make money is becoming more accurate over time. So while one part of the economy has done well in recent years, under the sur face we see the economic position of the middle-class stagnating. The average middle-class American familys net worth is $40,000 less than what it was at the economic peak before the Great Recession, according to the Fed. And real wage growth has been falling since 2015. Declining real wage growth means that peoples purchasing power is still growing, but at a slower and slower pace. Over the last year, a 2.7 percent wage growth was outpaced by a 2.9 percent cost of living increase, so folks wages are now buying them less gas and groceries than they did a year ago. Thats a big deal. Real wage growth is one of the best indicators for determin ing if the average family sees their situa tion as improving or declining. Margaret R.

SEPTEMBER 19 & 20, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 14A Having good insurance coverage is a basic necessityEveryone runs the risk of experiencing some kind of misfortune. Whether its an accident, a re, theft, a serious illness or a natural disaster, this type of misfortune can happen to anyone, anytime. If prevention or carefulness can help to reduce the risks, they can never completely prevent such events from occurring. And this is why it is so important to have good insurance coverage. Even if we cant always avoid catastrophes, good insurance will help to minimize the consequences or, at the very least, the nancial costs. For example, a good home insurance policy can prevent some-one nding themselves on the street after a re. The policy should not only cover the costs of repair work or rebuilding, but should also pay for any lodging and living costs during the work. Civil responsibility, which covers third party damages, should also be included. But home insurance is only one ingredient in a complete insurance package. Apart from car insur-ance, there are also dierent types of personal insurance such as health insurance, which can cover certain care not covered by the public system. Whats more, some policies include salary insur-ance in case of disability. Life insurance shouldnt be forgotten either, which, even though it doesnt directly benet the holder of the policy, allows an individual to provide for family members in the event of death. They say it never rains but it pours. But one things for sure: good insurance coverage helps to reduce the veracity of this old saying. Everyone runs the risk of experiencing some kind of misfortune and thats why its so important to have good insurance. YOUR INSURANCE SPECIALISTS 313 N.

SEPTEMBER 19 & 20, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 2B State & Region tom.lynn@ganews.com VALDOSTA, Ga. A proposed tax increase will draw people to government meetings. Such a proposal attracted public at tention during a Valdosta City Council meeting Aug. 23, when a crowd of people showed up to stand against higher taxes. Normally, less than a handful of resi dents might attend a regularly scheduled meeting. However, during the meeting and two previous public hearings, several city res idents voiced outrage the city would bud get more expenditures than expected reve nue. Other residents pleaded for the city to show mercy by not raising taxes on people already struggling to make ends meet. The situation turned even more chaot ic when the city-proposed property tax increase failed to garner enough council votes to pass. Then, two freshmen council members proposed a larger tax increase, which would have balanced the citys budget. Their motion failed. Leaving only one more option. Maintain the status quo by neither increasing nor decreasing property taxes, leaving the city nearly $300,000 in the hole. Cities, counties and school boards throughout the SunLight Project coverage area Valdosta, Thomasville, Tifton, Dalton, Moultrie and Milledgeville, Ga. and Live Oak, Fla. go through some thing similar to these events every year when they have to set their respective millage rate. A millage rate is a tool for calculating local property taxes. Rates uctuate from the high end of 18.756 for Whiteld County Board of Ed ucation to the lowest rate of zero for the City of Thomasville. City and county rates in the SunLight coverage area typically hover somewhere between 7 and 9 mills. Thomasville and Dalton are outliers, as both cities pay for their budget through selling utility services such as electric, gas and water. Other cities, such as Valdosta and Moultrie, have to rely more on sales taxes to pay for their budgets without having to increase property taxes. For residents in incorporated areas of Colquitt County, their property taxes are lower than 13 years ago because of an in crease in sales tax revenues. Their millage rate went from 16.665 to 15.527 mills. Colquitt County Administrator Chas Cannon said much of that can be attribut ed to sales taxes bringing more money into county coffers. For example, sales taxes have reduced county dependence on property taxes for road resurfacing and other transportation needs, he said. We were able to shift some of the bur den from homeowners, and even visitors who pay the tax when they make purchas es in the county, Cannon said. Weve been able to lighten the burden, or at least keep it from rising for the last four years. The sales tax is expected to affect mill age rates in the future, he said. If we can have the millage rate con stant, the only variable is the assessment value (of property), Cannon said. Thats what were trying to achieve. Assessment Value Before becoming a Valdosta City Coun cil member, Andy Gibbs had a vague understanding of how the millage rate works. I was kinda, sorta aware of how it worked just looking at my tax assessments and paying taxes and things, Gibbs said. But it wasnt until he was elected to City Council District 6 in 2017 that he said he started learning more about what the millage rate means. A teacher at Valdosta Middle School, Gibbs did what any teacher would do his homework. He met with Valdosta City Manager Mark Barber and worked through the overly complex minutiae of city nances. Barber told Gibbs the tax commissioner provides the city an anticipated property assessment. The assessment is an educated guess of how much money the city will receive from property taxes for a scal year. It is a guess because all Georgia cities, counties and school boards have to set their budgets before receiving their re spective assessments. Governments have to decide how much money they will spend for a year before knowing how much money they actually have. Every budget is based off of estimates, and for the Valdosta 2018-19 budget, esti mates were slightly too high. At a public hearing on increasing property taxes, Chuck Dinkins, Valdosta nance director, said the city expected property values to go up by 3.5 or 4 per cent to pay for the city budget. But it only increased by 2.72 percent. For the city to compensate the differ ence, it would have to cut its planned bud get or adjust the millage rate. Barber said his biggest concern isnt whether he can make the city budget work. Ill nd places to cut. Ill make it work, Barber said. My biggest concern is that the city isnt growing enough to sustain its general fund. When was the last time a subdivision went up in the city? For Valdosta, the city didnt grow as much as it wanted but it did grow enough to require a rollback millage rate. Property values regularly increase each year because of ination and the state re quires governing bodies to either account for ination by rolling back millage rates, or they can keep the same millage rate, or increase it, for a property tax increase. However, there is another side of the coin. If the property value in an area de creases, the rollback rate could actually be a millage rate increase. At a recent Live Oak City Council meeting in Florida, council increased the millage rate from 8.91 to 9.18 to provide for the same amount of tax revenue as last year. City Manager Ron Williams said prop erty values went up slightly but there were losses in personal property within the city. Baldwin County Schools is on the other side of the spectrum. The Baldwin board of education de creased its millage rate by more than a full percentage point from 17.06 to 15.65 and still raised $644,925 more than last year, said Byron Schueneman, chief nancial ofcer. Although its considered a revenue neutral millage rate, we still have an increase in overall taxes levied, Schuen eman said. So although were reducing that millage rate were still bringing in and taxing more than we did in the prior year, even though its considered a reve nue neutral millage rate. Given the Baldwin BOEs decrease in millage rate, the owner of a $100,000 property will pay $626 this year as op posed to $682.4 last year, a difference of $56.40, he said. With millage rates, so much is deter mined on outside factors that a governing body can increase the millage and still fall short or decrease the millage and come away with more money. Make it simple For Gibbs, describing what he learned to a crowd of people at the city meeting was a daunting task. I really learned a lot, Gibbs said. But what I really learned was that this stuff is complicated and I didnt know how I was going to explain it to the public. In some cases, city ofcials ght an uphill battle. Whiteld County resident David Chastain said he doesnt think he gets a good deal for his local property tax dol lars. A lot of what they spend it on seems extravagant, he said. These new parks and things. They build them with SPLOST (special purpose local option sales tax) money, but after that our prop erty tax dollars have to maintain them. But Thomasville resident Wallace Goodman said he sees value for what he pays in taxes levied by county government and the city school board. I have re and police protection and roads on which to drive, he said. Prop erty taxes pay for 911 and the water and sewer systems, etc. Without the money to provide services, residents would have none of the services a town or city offers. Yes, I have value for my property taxes. Goodman said some tax increases are justied and others have less justica tion. If a town is managed efciently and the governing body is in tune with the cit izenry, the community will be responsive in a positive manner to tax increases, he said. Goodman said high property taxes would spur him to consider relocating. I suppose if the property taxes became so high they jeopardized my daily needs, I might have to consider selling my home and moving into non-owner housing such as an apartment complex, he said. At the Valdosta city meeting, Gibbs used his experience as a teacher to explain to the audience, in simple terms, why the city wanted to increase property taxes and the true effects it would have on people. After all the complicated explanations and everything, people just had trouble understanding it, Gibbs said. So thats when I broke it down to just bubblegum and coffee. He said a home that is valued at $50,000, after all the math is done, that home owner would only owe the city 10 cents a month with the proposed tax in crease. For someone like me, with a $250,000 house, I used myself as an example. Youre asking me to come out of my pocket 83 cents a month, Gibbs said. Youre asking me to give up one cup of coffee, and if I do that and everyone else does that, then we can balance the bud get. But without the tax increase, the city has to make cuts to its budget. Where are we going to cut? Gibbs said. Is it going to be from re, police or public works? What about projects like helping downtown or xing roads and sidewalks. When you look at the grand scheme of things, all of that now has to be put on the back burner, but next time I really hope we think this thing out 100 percent.

SEPTEMBER 19 & 20, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 3B Sports They came out an gry, Branford coach Tim Clark said. Theyve been hitting each other for two weeks and they had this one in their sights. We wanted to try and make this thing our game early. Prior to that run the first of three long scores from the senior running back the Bucs last scored against Trenton in the second quarter in 2012. Since then, Tren ton had outscored BHS 258-0. We have a mindset of going to the playoffs, McQuay said. Thats our mindset right now, so we came out and hit them in the mouth and we just kept running the ball hard. The Bucs (2-1) made up for lost time. Facing fourth-and-17 from the Trenton 45 on its next drive, Branford quarterback Jevin John son found Colton Leibold behind the defense for 44 yards to set up his own 1-yard scoring run. McQuay then raced through the 0-4 Tigers defense from 61 yards out with 34 seconds left in the first to put the Bucs up 21-0. Leading 21-6 in the third quarter, McQuay put the finishing touches on his big night with a 62yard scamper untouched down the left sideline. The senior finished with 221 yards and the three TDs on just 10 car ries. We did well but we want to even be better next time, McQuay said. Clark added: Hes a special player and he has some guys blocking their butts off for him too. A turnover on Tren tons next play led to another Buc score and the floodgates opened. On third-and-3 with 4:35 to go in the third, Johnson hit Dakota Hamm on a 25yard touchdown to push the lead to 34-6. Johnson completed 12 of 18 passes for 143 yards. Another Trenton fumble with 8:42 left in the game bounced right into the hands of Branfords Da kota Stevens at the goal line to make it 40-6. The Bucs forced four turnovers with Hamm intercepting a pass and Ritchie Glass also recov ering one of the Tigers three lost fumbles. Ive got confidence in our defense, Clark said after the Bucs allowed just 150 yards of offense. I feel like if we have an inch of grass, were going to defend it. Trentons lone score came in closing seconds of the rst half when Trenton capped a 14-play, 51-yard Continued From Page 1A Bucs Noah Nguyen kick. The Indians scored on all four of their rst-half possessions getting scoring runs of 9 yards from Ty Corbin 24 seconds into the second quarter, 48 yards from Kirk Williams three minutes later and 3 yards from Hunter Barrand with 2:21 left before half. Two of the scores were set up by Hamilton turnovers. After a fumble on Chief lands rst drive of the third, the Indians added a 58-yard Williams touchdown run and a 6-yard Corbin scoring scamper in the third to ex tend their lead to 41-6. That last score followed John sons second interception. Johnson, though, found Ealy again in the fourth on a 25-yard touchdown with four minutes remaining in the game. Ealy then caught a 2-point conversion pass from Johnson as well. Johnson completed 4 of 8 passes for 165 yards, with Ealy catching all four of the passes. Hamilton, though, n ished with zero yards rush ing on 20 attempts, led by Keyvon Webbs 8 yards on ve carries. Chieand gained 344 of its 386 yards on the ground, paced by Wil liams 169 yards on just nine carries. UP NEXT: The Trojans are off this week before Jefferson County visits Sept. 28. Continued From Page 1B Trojans White. It looked like the game was headed for overtime after that score, but special teams proved to be the difference again this year between SHS and Ribault. And it wasnt just the missed extra point at the end of the game. Last year RHS had two punt return touchdowns against the Bulldogs. On Friday, the Trojans jumped out to an ear ly lead with an 83-yard punt return touchdown in the rst quarter. Suwannee battled back from an early hole, using an inter ception from White and a long return to set up a good scoring chance. After Whites interception, Taylor connected with Jaquez Moore on a 27-yard touchdown to cut Ribaults lead to 8-7. RHS kept that 8-7 advantage going into halftime. In what was a physical game dominated by the defenses, the Bulldogs defense didnt allow any touchdowns. Ribault, though, was able to convert both of its two-point conver sions. The Trojans lone touch down of the second half came late in the third quarter. With SHS pinned back deep inside its own territory, the Trojans recovered a fumble and ran 10 yards for the score to take a 16-9 lead. Kids played their heart out, this one is on me, said Suwan nee coach Kyler Hall. Although early in the season, Suwannee (2-2) is now on the outside looking in as far as the playoffs. Ribault (1-3) controls its own destiny in the district. If the Bulldogs dont receive some help in district play, they are going to need a spectacular end of the season to qualify for a playoff berth based on points, especially in a stacked region. UP NEXT: Suwannee gets a bye week before hosting Stan ton Prep on Sept. 28. Continued From Page 1A Bulldogs MONTICELLO In 2017, it was the Lafayette Hornets running circles around Jefferson County with a domi nating offensive attack. The Tigers got revenge Friday, giv ing Lafayette a taste of its own medi cine. Jefferson County (2-1) totaled 681 yards of offense (335 passing and 346 rushing) and used a strong finish to come away with a 47-28 win. After Jaxson Beachs 25-yard touch down run got Lafayette within one touchdown of the lead (27-21 in the third quarter), the Tigers came back with 13 unanswered points to take back control of the game. Josh Aiken threw for 234 yards and Cameron Morris rushed for 222 yards and three scores to lead JCHS. Beach ran for 192 yards and four touchdowns, which included a big run just before the half. His 42-yard TD scamper helped LHS go into halftime down just 14-7. But Jeffersons defense held Beach to just 6-of-21 passing for 104 yards. Richy James caught four passes for 73 yards.

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.

That makes fall the perfect time to whip up some apple-in spired foods. This recipe for Elsies Stewed Apples from Laurey Mastertons The Fresh Honey Cook book (Storey) requires a tad more effort than traditional applesauce recipes, but the extra work is well worth it in the end. When shopping for apples in advance of prepar ing this recipe, avoid apples that have a mealy texture as well as those that are overly sweet. Elsies Stewed Apples Serves 6 to 8 Ingredients: salted butter peeled, cored and cut into thick slices bly sage honey garnish Directions: large skillet over medium heat. Add the apples, turn the heat to high and saut until they begin to brown on the edges, about 5 min utes. If some are getting too well done, remove them and place on a plate while the rest continue to cook, then return them to the skillet when all are done. and add the honey, wine, lemon zest, lemon juice, and allow to cook until the apples are tender but still rm; you dont want them to turn into applesauce. tuck in a couple sprigs of fresh sage from your gar den, and tell your guests all about sage honey.
