But shhh dont tell anyone this Common Core isnt really going away in Florida, just the name. GOP lawmakers are advancing a bill that repeals more than 30 mentions of Common Core that were placed into state law just a year ago. Some Republicans are also pushing ahead a bill that would mandate school districts adopt their own textbooks even though small school districts are complaining they dont have the money or the time to take over a job typically done at the state level. This comes after some conservatives complained that a high school world history textbook approved by the state gave too much attention to Islam. The Florida Senate has already passed a far-reaching data security bill (SB 188) that would ban school districts from collecting any type of biometric data, including fingerprints or palm prints, from students or parents. The measure is going to force Pinellas County to scrap a system its been using to verify that students qualify for free or reduced lunches. But legislators have refused to jettison Common Core standards. Bills from Republican legislators that called for a pause on putting the standards in place have not been debated during this years session. The call for changes came nearly three months after Gov. Rick Scott promised Republicans attending an annual state party convention that officials would respond to complaints about Common Core. Scotts remarks were made a day after a state party caucus passed a resolution opposing the standards. Top Republicans insist the changes arent an effort to just answer critics of Common Core anger prompting changes The changes are mostly cosmetic, though, and Core essentially intact. >> COMING SUNDAY An update on county connector road project.

2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING WEDNESDAY, APRIL 2, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 Damages sought in Bieber lawsuit MIAMI A celebrity photographer sought to boost the potential dam ages he could win from Justin Bieber in a lawsuit that accuses the singer and a bodyguard of battery in a confrontation outside a recording studio. The photographers attorney, Mark DiCowden, said at a Tuesday hearing that he has documented at least 11 similar alleged assaults against photog raphers over two years involving Bieber and his security personnel. DiCowden said a punitive damage award for Jeffrey Binion could deter future assaults against celebrity photographers, known as paparazzi. Its not a financial fish ing expedition, DiCowden said in asking Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Sarah Zabel to allow him to pursue unspecified punitive damag es. It is well known around the world that Justin Bieber does not like to be photo graphed in public. Zabel did not immediate ly rule.

The State Attorneys Office in Hillsborough County informed Julie Scheneckers attorneys Monday that it was withdrawing its notice of intent to seek the death penalty. A spokesman for the State Attorneys Office said in an email that the over whelming evidence of mental health issues would make a death sentence unlikely to withstand the scrutiny of the Florida Supreme Court. Schenecker is scheduled to go on trial April 28 in the Jan. 27, 2011, slayings of her two children, 16-year-old Calyx and 13-year-old Beau. Scheneckers lawyers have notified the court they intend to argue she was insane at the time of the killings. Woman getting deported in NY gambling case ALBANY, N.Y. A federal judge in upstate New York has sentenced a 30-year-old Florida resident to probation for laun dering more than $8 million for a wide spread illegal sports gambling operation. Michele Lasso was detained by immigra tion officials in Albany for deportation to her native Panama after sentencing Tuesday. U.S. District Court Judge Mae DAgostino says Lasso helped authorities recover $7 mil lion from foreign banks and the new mother spent the past year in home confinement, but her motive was greed. Lasso apologized.Defense attorney William Shepherd notes sports betting and managing bank accounts in various countries is neither illegal nor uncommon in Panama. The ringleader, 52-year-old Philip Gurian of Boca Raton, Fla., faces sentenc ing April 15. He has also pleaded guilty to conspiracy to launder money.Water managers may appeal Clean Water ruling FORT MYERS South Floridas water managers may appeal a federal judges ruling over the pumping of water from farmlands into public water supplies such as Lake Okeechobee. Environmental groups have hailed last weeks ruling by U.S. District Judge Kenneth Karas in New Yorks Southern District. Karas said the practice of back pumping violates the Clean Water Act. South Florida Water Management District spokesman Randy Smith tells the News-Press that day-to-day operations wont immediately change while the dis trict considers filing an appeal. The nonprofit environmental law firm Earthjustice first filed its case in 2002 over polluted water from sugar cane and vegetable fields pumped into Lake Okeechobee which is the drinking water source for millions of Floridians.

I dont think were walking a fine line, its com mon sense, said Sen. John Legg, R-Trinity and chairman of the Senate Education Committee. Common Core State Standards are a result of an initiative sponsored by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers and have been adopted in 45 states and Washington, D.C. Opponents see them as the nationalization of education policy and standards, something they say should be left to the states. Supporters contend that having a shared set of standards will allow for a more accurate state-bystate comparison of student performance. Scott initially backed Common Core standards, which set uniform benchmarks for reading, writing and math. But amid complaints from grassroots conservative groups and activists, Scott called for public hearings last fall and set the groundwork for the state to pull out of a consortium developing a national test to see if school children are meeting the new standards. The hearings generated harsh criticism of the standards from some parents who called them a plan by federal bureaucrats to assert more control over schools. Earlier this year the state Board of Education made some tweaks to the standards and state officials started calling them Florida standards. Former Gov. Jeb Bush, a champion of Common Core, says he doesnt care what the state calls them long as the standards require critical thinking among students. He praised Florida legislators for addressing issues such as student data security. Unlike other states that have gotten nervous because theres a lot of heat...Im kind of proud of what Florida has done, Bush said. That doesnt mean there wont be ramifications from this years legislative actions. One of the biggest changes could be whether or not legislators completely eliminate all state review of textbooks and shift complete control to the states 67 school districts. Part of the impetus was a flareup in Volusia County over the world history textbook that some parents wanted pulled. There is a great deal of legitimate concern about centralization of education, and thats been a lot of pushback in our struggle with our standards, said Rep. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala. This is an effort to decentralize the process a little. School districts and superintendents have raised alarms about the legislative proposal and the potential costs. The House version of the textbook bill (HB 921) was amended on Tuesday to let school boards decide whether to review instructional materials at the local level. But the revamped legislation sponsored by Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach, would require a public hearing before final adoption. We should set the bar as high as we can but then trust the districts to pick the materials to get them there, Gaetz said. CHANGESContinued From 1A MARCHContinued From 1A LEVELSContinued From 1A 2012, claiming racial dis crimination, and retaliation. Smith was seeking damages in excess of $75,000 for each of three claims. City Manager Wendell Johnson said he and Chief Argatha Gilmore were both opposed to settling. The insurance company decided to settle and with what Smith was asking, that $40,000 is a small amount, he said. The risk carrier had budgeted $40,000 for this case, for the trial and the appeal, and (Smiths) attorney approached our attorney to settle. I was opposed to it and the chief was opposed to it, but when our risk carrier is paying the bill, its out of our hands. The city has a $10,000 deductible through Florida Municipal Insurance Trust, which will pay the remainder of the $40,000 settlement costs. There is no question in my mind (Smith and his attorney) did not want to go to court, thats why they approached us with the settlement, Johnson said. Smith was placed on administrative leave with pay in November 2011 after he filed a complaint against another LCPD captain. City officials launched an investigation into Smiths claims, which centered on allegations of employment discrimina tion and internal operations disagreements with Chief Argatha Gilmore as well as conflict between Smith and another LCPD captain. While on administrative leave with pay, Smith filed a lawsuit alleging he was the victim of discrimination and says he was retaliated against by his superiors for his involvement in a civil rights case filed by another former LCPD captain, Rudolph Davis. The Davis case, a race-based employment discrimination action brought on against the city, was later dis missed by a federal judge. Smith, who was named a Lake City Police Department captain on Oct. 4, 2010, was fired in April 2012 because he refused an order to appear for a final internal investigation interview, police officials said. Smith had been on paid administrative leave for six months before he was terminated, after filing a racial discrimination complaint against the police department. LAWSUITContinued From 1AI was opposed to it and the chief was opposed to it, but when our risk carrier is paying the bill, its out of our hands. City Manager Wendell Johnson By JIM SAUNDERSThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE After a disturbing newspaper investigation and the murder of a Jacksonville girl, Florida legislative leaders vowed to get tough this year on sexually violent predators. And Tuesday, Gov. Rick Scott moved quickly to sign a package of bills aimed at keeping sexually violent predators locked up so they cant attack again. Floridas going to be scorched earth for these monsters, said Sen. Rob Bradley, a Fleming Island Republican who worked on the bills. Scott signed the package (SB 522, SB 524, SB 526 and SB 528) during a ceremony in the Capitols Cabinet meeting room that included sheriffs, prosecutors, lawmakers, sexual-assault victims and victims family members. Scott and other speakers said the bills will make Floridas children safer. Supporters hope the bills will prevent a repeat of incidents such as the kidnapping, rape and murder last year of 8-year-old Cherish Perrywinkle in Jacksonville, a case that drew widespread attention. A registered sex offender, Donald Smith, has been arrested in the case. More broadly, supporters hope the legislation will address problems raised in an investigative report by the South Florida Sun Sentinel. The newspaper reported that the commitment of sexually violent predators under the states Jimmy Ryce Act had slowed to a crawl. Also, it found that since 1999, nearly 600 sexual predators had been released only to be convicted of new sex offenses --including more than 460 child molestations, 121 rapes and 14 murders. House Criminal Justice Chairman Matt Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach, said the bills will mean Florida will not be a catch and release state for sexual predators. The bills make numerous changes to the states criminal and civil-commitment laws. As an example, SB 526, which was spearheaded by Bradley and Gaetz, would lead to mandatory minimum sentences of 50 years in prison for what are known as dangerous sexual felony offenders. Taking part in the bill-signing ceremony was Lauren Book, a sexual-abuse survivor who has founded a group called Laurens Kids. Also taking part was Diena Thompson, whose 7-year-old daughter Somer disappeared in Clay County in 2009 while walking home from school. The childs body was later found in a South Georgia landfill. Bradley, who lives in Clay County, pointed to the Thompson and Perrywinkle cases and said the sexual-predator issue is personal and raw to people in Northeast Florida. Weve been rocked by these awful, awful tragedies, he said.From staff reports2014 Passion PlayParkview Baptist Church, 268 NW Lake Jeffrey Rd., will perform their 2014 Lake City Passion Play The Lamb Has Overcome on Sunday, April 13 at 4 p.m. and Monday, April 14 at 7 p.m. Call 386-752-0681 for more information.Epiphanys PlayEpiphany Catholic Church, 1905 SW Epiphany Court, will perform its Passion Play on Friday, April 11 at 7 p.m. at the churchs main building.

BY EMAIL: email@example.com E ven after President Obama and the Democrats enacted Obamacare, they didnt know what was in it, despite Nancy Pelosis assurance that Congress would find out what it had done once it was the law. With each passing week, the Obama administration invents new exemptions, delays and revisions, though the Constitution clearly says that Congress enacts laws and the president executes them. Mr. Obamas short-cuts and inventions could yet be the end of the health care takeover. The fiercest battle is being waged in Halbig v. Sebelius, which the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit heard last week. The three-judge panel must decide whether Congress meant what it said when it wrote that penalty mandates and the power to grant tax credits applies to taxpayers who enroll in qualified health insurance plans through an Exchange established by the State under Section 1311 of Obamacare. The statute clearly limits the tax credits to state exchanges, but only 17 states have created these exchanges. Democrats naturally assumed that every-one would leap at the chance to bring government medicine to their state. The IRS joined the party by declaring that it had the authority to apply penalties and tax credits to the federal exchange used in the other 33 states. The federal exchange was established under Section 1321 of the statute. In the surreal world of Obamacare, expanding eligibility for the tax credits expands the penalties. Taxpayers who by the letter of the law shouldnt be fined by the IRS, are fined. Alice is not the only dowager in Wonderland. [R]eporting requirements in the law meant that anyone forced into a federal exchange would be told what he would have received in tax credits if the state had established an exchange. This requirement was meant to put pressure on the states to establish exchanges. To insist, as the adminis-tration now does, that Congress intended identical tax treatment of state and federal exchanges defies logic. Mr. Obama has unilaterally modified Obamacare 27 times .... The IRS, by choosing to read language which Congress did not put into the law, says it can collect taxes and pay subsidies of $500 billion over 10 years without congressional authorization. Had the Democrats who wrote the law intended the subsidy to apply to the federal exchange, they could and would have said so. Congress certainly knew the language required to treat something thats not a state as if it were a state for legal purposes, and it could have done that for the federal exchange. Instead, the law as enacted sets out a clear distinction between federal and state exchanges. These arguments found a receptive audience in the three-judge appellate panel last week. There is an absurdity principle, said Judge A. Raymond Randolph, but there is not a stupidity principle. If the law is just stupid, I dont think its up to the court to save it. We agree. Theres no good reason to save this law.The Obamacare exchange problem Q Washington Times Lake City: All over the map W e like to think of our little corner of the world as unique, and surely it is, in all the ways that count. But Lake City really isnt one of a kind. Across America there are more than a dozen other places that call themselves Lake City, it turns out. Theres even one in Pakistan. In the age of social media, it can be confusing. Some months back on Facebook, a friend posted news reports of a deranged killer whod escaped from a Lake City mental institution. Problem is, it was Lake City, S.C. Another quick post cleared the mat-ter up and everybody breathed a little easier. Sometimes the mix-ups are more mundane. I once got a frantic series of automated emails imploring me to cover a musical production because a Lake City teen would be perform-ing. This time it was Lake City, Wash., a neighborhood in Seattle. No harm done in that instance. Not all Lake Citians are pleased with the appellation. Folks in Lake City, Tenn. want to change their towns name. They want to be called Rocky Top instead, as in the song. Federal copyright law may thwart them. The publishing house that owns the rights to the name and the song recently threatened legal action. At last check, the Tennessee Legislature had taken up the matter. Lake City pops up all over the map. There is Lake City, Minn., but that should come as no surprise, in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. In addition, there are Lake City clones in: Arkansas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Michigan, Pennsylvania, South Dakota and Texas. There is even one in Pakistan. Sort of. Lake City is the name of an exclusive resort planned for Lahore, a city of roughly 10 million. All this data comes by way of Google Alerts, a cool feature that lets me know when something of interest pops up on the Web in regard to Lake City, Fort White or Columbia County. Were only after local news, but plenty of flotsam get scooped up in the process. And never let it be said the Internet is wanting in more or less useless but still kind of entertain-ing trivia. C all me old-fashioned or just plain old, but one of the things I like about airline travel is being required to shut off cell phones no talking, texting, email-ing, Facebooking or whatevering for the duration of the flight. The reason I like it is simple. People who arent glued to cell phones are somewhat more likely to turn to the stranger who is wedged in beside them and engage in what was once known as polite conversation. This, of course, can be good or bad, based on the social skills, men-tal health and personal hygiene of the stranger. Sometimes its not a give-and-take conversation, but a mind-numbing monologue that makes you want to get in the overhead bin and refuse to come down. I can only imagine what the FAA would have to say about that. But usually, in my experience, getting to know someone Ive never met and will most likely never meet again is a pleasant way to pass a flight. It also helps me to forget the sobering fact that Im hurtling through the air 35,000 feet above the earth. Once in a while, if Im lucky, I strike gold and get to sit next to someone like Sasha young, 17 or so, gracious, well-mannered and brimming over with life. I wish you couldve seen her.We started with the question we were both dying to ask: The killer eyelashes on the flight attendant. Real or fake? When you get a chance, I whispered, ask her. Sasha grinned. I will.Then we played a fun game that my kids used to call, Mom Asks Too Many Questions. Sasha told me that she was born in Serbia, but had lived in California with her mother since the age of 6. I go back every summer to see my family. I love Serbia! Its such a jewel of a country! She was on her way to Las Vegas to spend her spring break with the family of a friend. Where do you go to school?Monterey High, she said.I laughed. Do you know Randall Gym? Yes, sure, she said. Thats where I play volleyball. Its named for my late husband, I said. He taught and coached at Monterey High for years. Our three children all went to school there, too. With that, Sasha pulled out her yearbook and we spent several min-utes comparing notes on how some things have changed while other things have stayed the same. Isnt that always the way life goes? She told me shes not quite sure yet what she wants to do, but she might like to be a writer. I nodded and smiled. I bet youre a wonderful writer. She said she loves to write and I said I like it, too, though what I really like is having written. Just then the flight attendant came down the aisle and Sasha asked politely in a whisper, Your lashes. Are they real? The attendant smiled, batted her eyes and shook her head no. After she left, Sasha said, I might try lashes for the prom. Heck, I thought, I might try them tomorrow. At my age, you dont want to wait for a prom. For a moment, I recalled the tall skinny girl I was at Sashas age, when my life lay before me, a blank page waiting to be filled. Suddenly we were landing and it was time to go. I gave Sasha my business card and said if shed ever like to talk about writing or what-ever, Id be glad to hear from her. Then I wished her the best and said goodbye. In the cab on my way home I found myself wondering: What will Sasha do with her life? What will I do with mine?What will you do with yours?Every morning, at any age, we wake to find our lives shining before us, another fresh blank page waiting to be filled. Its a small and wonderful world, with or without killer lashes. Especially if we can shut off the dis-tractions once in a while, and take a little time to turn strangers into friends.

In fact, with the warmer weather I have even seen a few farmers planting peanuts this week. UF/IFAS Extension Agents in eight north Florida counties recently took a poll of planting intentions for this spring. The results pointed to a likely 10% increase of acres planted to peanuts in north Florida. Our locally-grown peanuts go straight to Georgia to be shelled and made into many peanut products. Americans consume 1.5 million pounds of peanuts per year. In fact, peanut butter is consumed in 90% of American households. There is perhaps no other food that we identify so closely with the American childhood. The average American child will eat 1,500 peanut butter sandwiches before graduating from high school. Americans also have a unique fondness for peanut candies. Peanuts are more than two-thirds of all snack nuts consumed in the United States, and four of the top ten selling candy bars contain peanuts. Here are a few Peanut Facts. It takes about 540 peanuts to make a 12-ounce jar of peanut butter. There are enough peanuts in one acre to make 30,000 peanut butter sandwiches. Americans eat enough peanut butter in a year to make more than 10 billion peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Sixty percent of consumers prefer creamy peanut butter over crunchy. Peanuts and peanut butter contain over 30 essential nutrients and phytonutrients. Rumors say that theres enough mental stimulation in one peanut to produce 30 minutes of serious thinking. That may or may not be true, but peanuts are a good source of protein and the B vitamins, nutrients that help prevent brain fatigue. Peanut oil is valued as premium cooking oil by cooks and chefs worldwide. Tasteless and odorless, peanut oil doesnt transfer food flavors. Peanuts contain no cholesterol. Recent studies show that peanuts may be helpful in reducing cholesterol levels in the body. Peanut butter was the secret behind Mr. Ed, TVs talking horse. Spreading peanut butter inside the horses mouth created a natural talking movement every time the animal moved his sticky jaws. The peanut butter and banana sandwich was reported to have been the favorite of Elvis the King Presley. In Barbara Mandrells hit song I Was Country When Country Wasnt Cool she sings about putting peanuts in her Coke. This method of enjoying peanuts was developed by southern farm workers as a practical snack solution in the interest of time and cleanliness, plus its flavorful. Everybody loves peanuts; so much so, that theres a saying: Will power is the ability to eat one peanut!

Dear Pharmacist, I have neuropathies all over my body, it feels like pins and needles. I take pain medications. Is there anything natural I can do or take? G.D. Seattle, Colorado Answer: Neuropathy may cause more than the discomfort you describe. It can also cause pain, weakness, dizziness when standing up, burning sensations (even in the tongue), shooting pain, trigeminal neuralgia, tingling, numbness, cystitis, urinary urgency, and vibration/buzzing sensations. In men, erectile dysfunction is possible. Recognizing that your neuropathy is related to another disorder is huge. If you treat the neuropathy as a disease in and of itself, then you miss the big picture, and the opportunity to cure yourself. Neuropathy is a symptom of post-herpetic neuralgia (shingles), high insulin, diabetes, gluten sensitivity or Celiac, heavy metal toxicity, autoimmune disorders, Lyme disease and medications. A little known fact is that medications can mug your body of nutrients that would otherwise protect your nerves, so neuropathy pain is a side effect. The list of drugs that can indirectly do this goes is in the hundreds and some classic offenders include antacids, acid blockers, oral contraceptives, hormone replacement therapy, corticosteroids, statin cholesterol reducers, breast cancer drugs and fluoroquinolone antibiotics. That last class of drugs, the fluoroquinolones (Cipro, Floxin, Avelox, Levaquin) have a fluoride backbone. Fluoride is known to harm the thyroid gland, reduce thyroid production and cause irreversible damage to the nervous system. One solution for neuropathies is to reduce insulin and blood sugar. My book, Diabetes Without Drugs offers natural remedies to help. Id get off medications that cause neuropathies (with physician approval) and simultaneously get on medications that support nerve growth. Thyroid medications, specifically T3 and/or growth hormone shots can help. If your doctor approves and supervises you, you could take a few of the following supplements. Its all trial and error, I dont know whats right for you: Thiamine: A glass of wine every night can steal nerve-protective nutrients like vitamin B1 (thiamine). You can also try benfotiamine, a fat-soluble form of thiamine. Probiotics: Sounds strange, but heres a connection: Probiotics allow you to make methylcobalamin (vitamin B12) which you need to produce myelin and protect the nerve cells. Methylcobalamin (B12): When your body starves for B12, you lose the myelin sheath and your nerves short circuit. This can cause neuropathy and depression. There are dozens of drug muggers of B12, including the diabetic medications that you take as well as processed foods, sugar, antibiotics, estrogen hormones and acid blockers. Lipoic Acid: You can buy it as alpha at any health food store, or R lipoic acid as a more bioavailable form. This antioxidant squashes free radicals that attack your myelin sheath and fray your nerve wiring. It reduces blood sugar too. High doses are needed to improve nerve pain, however, if you take high doses, you need to also supplement with a little biotin. The reason is because lipoic acid is a drug mugger of biotin. 8A LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH WEDNESDAY, APRIL 2, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 MEDIPLEX404 NW Hall of Fame Dr., Lake City, FL 32055 All Services Under One Roof (386) 754-DOCS (3627)www.primarycaremedic.com Minesh Patel, MD Elizabeth Kathy Newman, ARNP Mary Goddeyne, ARNP Minesh Patel, MDBoard Certied Internal Medicine Best of Best 7 Years Primary Care for Adults Yearly Physicals Physicals for School-College Womens Health Geriatric Care Weight Loss Program EKG Spirometry Ear Lavage Holter Monitor Anti-coagulation Minor Surgeries Specialists On Site Dr. Feussner Neurologist Wed.

By TIM KIRBY firstname.lastname@example.org FORT WHITE Bradford High threw its No. 2 pitcher against host Fort White High on Tuesday and that was good enough. Bradford closed out its district with an 8-0 win over the Lady Indians. Shelby Wilkison notched the shutout with a twohitter. She walked one and struck out 13. Fort White had a bunt single by Morgan Cushman in the fourth inning and a one-out double by Chelsea Nieland in the seventh inning. Cushman pitched and kept Fort White in striking distance before Bradford (14-3, 8-2) racked up four runs in the seventh inning. Fort Whites biggest threat came in the fourth inning after Cushman led off with her single. Mallory Sealey entered as a cour tesy runner and moved to second base when Shea Chesney was hit by a pitch. The runners advanced on a wild pitch. On a bunt by Alexa Hatcher, Sealey was caught off third base and Chesney was stuck at sec ond. Bradford got out of the inning with a force out at third and a pop foul. Fort White played solid defense. There were two errors, but both on hot shots to third. Shortstop Ashley Chesney made a diving catch in foul terri tory for an out and started two double plays on infield pop-ups. For Bradford, Jaci Atkinson (triple, RBI, run scored), Ashton Adkins (two RBIs) and Annie Luke were 2-for-4. Fort White (4-11, 0-9) plays at Interlachen High at 6 p.m. Thursday, then hosts Chiefland High at 6 p.m. Friday. From staff reports Columbia Highs girls tennis team is tied for sec ond place entering todays final matches at the District 3-2A tournament hosted by Oakleaf High. Columbias doubles teams Cassidy Lear and Megan Zahnle at No. 1 and Tori Jackson and Brittany Helms at No. 2 were both seeded first and both advanced to todays semifinals. Sophomore Jackson is the veteran on the two teams. The other girls are freshmen. Jackson was seeded No. 2 at No. 3 singles and won her opening match. No. 1 Lear, No. 2 Zahnle, No. 4 Helms and No. 5 Chase Broome all made it through the first round of singles, but none advanced to play today. Along with the CHS wins in doubles, it was good enough for a tie with Fleming Island High. Gainesville High leads the tournament. Columbias boys did not make the second day and placed fifth. No. 1 Brandon Lavance won a singles match in a walkover and Daniel Rendel won his open ing match at No. 2. Both lost their second match es, while No. 3 Brandon Helms, No. 4 Braeden Lehman and No. 5 Noah Robinson lost opening matches, as did Columbias doubles teams.

Page Editor: Emogene Graham, 754-0415 LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS WEDNESDAY, APRIL 2, 2014 3B DEAR ABBY: I have been with my current boyfriend for a year and a half and I love him dear ly. However, I often find myself drawn to other guys who I know are nothing but trouble. It never goes further than simple flirt ing, but I still feel guilty for doing it when Im in a rela tionship. How do I keep myself from temptation? HARD TO RESIST DEAR HARD TO RESIST: Temptation to do what? To involve yourself with a man who is noth ing but trouble? A way to discourage that would be to ask yourself how you would feel if you lost your boyfriend. That would be a high price to pay for acting immaturely. However, if youre ask ing how to overcome the IMPULSE, my advice is to have an honest conver sation with yourself about why you feel the need. Most of the women (and men) who act this way are constantly trying to prove to themselves that they are attractive. If this could be you, then start working on your self-esteem, because if you dont, I predict youll ruin a good relationship. DEAR ABBY: Im in my 50s and overweight. I work hard, eat three meals a day and am -more or less -healthy except for sore feet after work. Im aware of the medical warnings. Who isnt? But I have decided to accept myself as I am, relax and be happy. For years I have been hard on myself for not being slim. This is me in my 50s. I dont expect myself to be slim like I was in my 20s. Now I can smile, breathe easier, have a good time, and finally buy the new clothes I have put off buying until I was thinner. My new spirit is weightless and my new attitude has made my life more mean ingful. Any thoughts? LIVING FREE AT LAST DEAR LIVING FREE: Only this, that we all have choices to make about our health, what is important to us and how we want to live our lives. You have made yours, and at this point it appears to have been the right one for you. May it ever be thus. DEAR ABBY: My hus band has a paralyzing fear of driving over bridges. It interferes with our life together. He is otherwise healthy, but will not see a therapist for this problem. We have been married for 27 years. I am 63 and he is 67. I am very sad that our life is so limited. Any advice? LANDLOCKED IN VIRGINIA DEAR LANDLOCKED: It would be interesting to know how your husband developed this phobia. But because he refuses to do anything about it and you feel restricted, consider traveling with another companion. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take the plunge and get into the groove. Its time to get fit and fabulous. Sign up for a rigorous routine that will help you look and be your best, both mentally and physically. Any challenge should be welcomed. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Share your feelings. Taking care of the needs of others will help you put your life in perspective. Dealing with matters concerning older or younger people in your life will be rewarding. An important partnership will develop. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Prepare to make last-minute changes based on what others do or say. Dont expect every one to be honest or give you a proper assessment of a situation you face. Do your own fact-finding and make your choices based on your needs. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take on an interesting project or challenge that someone presents. Your ability to think outside the box will help you grab the attention of someone with clout. Discussions will help put you in control. Avoid tak ing on too much. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Jumping from one thing to another may suit you just fine, but it will make those around you nervous. A deal or contract will favor you as long as you keep your emotions hidden. Home improve ments will make your life more entertaining. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Turn up the volume and take on whatever comes your way. Show your mental and physical abilities. You can stabilize your position among your peers and colleagues. A change in an important relationship will add to your happiness. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Feeling free to come and go as you please and to enjoy friends who offer excitement and adventure will keep you satisfied and enthusiastic about the future. Overspending will be your downfall. Find a way to have fun without being extravagant. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Make important changes at home that will help you accomplish personal goals and expand your interests and friendships. A differ ent lifestyle will help you manage what you want to do with what you are responsible for. Use your imagination. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Get your work out of the way and get on with more enjoyable pas times. An investment may interest you, but the infor mation you are given will not divulge how high a risk you will be taking. Proceed with caution. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Dont leave anything to chance. If you leave anything unfinished, you will face complaints and opposition. Stick close to home and work hard to complete whats expected of you and you will avoid a dispute. Accomplishment will make you feel good. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Put what you want in writing. Draw up contracts and nego tiate your position. You will win in the end if you have a solid plan of action. Socializing is highlighted. Getting together with an old friend will bring back fond memories. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A money matter or joint venture will cause upset. Back up and view your situation from a different angle. Use your imagination, and you will come up with a solution that will be acceptable. Listen, observe and take a smart position. ++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Woman in relationship cant resist flirting with other men Q Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.
