Opioids: County may sue makersAccording to information from the Department of Business and Professional Regulation, Cicis Pizza, 2329 U.S. 90, was initially closed Thursday due to high priority violations. When an inspector returned Friday, the restaurant was closed again as employees continued to address the violations. The inspection indicated there were three high priority violations found at the eatery on Thursday resulting in the temporary closure. The violations included reports by the inspector of more than a dozen roaches in various areas. An exterminator was contacted to address the problem. In addition, foods meant to be stored cold were not kept cold enough. Temperatures should not exceed 41 degrees, according to state guidelines, but ham was being kept at 53 degrees and the beef at 52 degrees. In addition, the restaurants dish machine chlorine sanitizer did not meet the proper minimum strength and corrective action was taken as employees set up a manual sanitization area until the dish machine could be repaired. An intermediate violation the inspector noted was the accumulation of a black/ green mold-like substance inside the ice machine. On Friday the temporary closure was extended when the inspector returned and reported dead roaches on the premises and found two roach egg casings. The egg casings were removed and cleaned and live roaches that were seen were killed and the areas cleaned. The inspector found less of the mold-like substance in the ice machine and time was extended until it could be removed. A return visit by the inspector later in the day yielded only one basic and one administrative intermediate violation and the restaurant was allowed to reopen. A Cicis manager authorized to speak to the press could not immediately be reached for comment. CICISContinued From 1A By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comA coalition of law firms is asking Columbia County to consider litigation against pharmaceutical manufacturers and distributors to recoup the money taxpayers have spent on the opioid crisis. Last week, County Attorney Joel Foreman and attorneys for Hamilton and Suwannee counties met with a team of lawyers, including Rod Smith from the Avera and Smith law firm, who want to pursue litigation against various companies, including local distributors, according to a Feb. 23 memo from Foreman. Treatment, law enforcement, court costs all those things have come out of county budgets, Foreman said. The group is set to present the proposal to the Columbia County Commission at its March 1 meeting. Attorneys from the law firms are offering to work on contingency, meaning the county pays nothing unless it prevails. Its at least worth exploring, Foreman said. There is ongoing litigation at the federal level over claims brought forward by multiple state and local governments. Its kind of an open issue right now, Foreman said. Those cases are all being heard out of a single court in Cleveland, Foreman said. By suing in state court, the county has more control over the litigation, he said, because the case would be heard by a local jury and a local judge in the same locale where the damages occurred, Foreman said. It makes more sense than having the case heard in Cleveland, Ohio, Foreman said. The group of law firms Foreman met with is approaching local and state governments throughout the country. Marion County recently engaged the group, according to the Feb. 23 memo. Theyre trying to hit basically every jurisdiction, Foreman said. One of the most recent cases was filed in January, when Delaware brought legal action in state court against manufacturer Purdue Pharma, distrib utors CVS and Walgreens and other entities. That lawsuit alleges manufacturers engaged in a massive marketing campaign to misstate and conceal the risks of treating chronic pain with opioids. Distributors, according to the lawsuit, allowed opioids to be diverted meaning they filled suspicious orders and failed prevent the drugs from being lost or stolen. As many as 110,000 out of every 860,000 opioid prescriptions issued each year in Delaware are diverted for non-medical uses, according to the lawsuit. The misconduct of Defendants, including their consistent failure to comply with their legal obligations, has led to an epidemic of prescription opioid abuse in Delaware, the lawsuit states. The epidemic resulted in 694 prescription opioid-related deaths in Delaware between 2007 and 2016, and 112 prescription opioid-related deaths in 2016 alone, and at least $100 million drained annually from State resources for the healthcare, criminal justice, social services and welfare and education system. Its not clear how heavily Columbia County has been affected by the opioid crisis. Larger jurisdictions such as Broward may have spent more money in total combating the opioid crisis, Foreman said, but smaller jurisdictions have tended to spend a larger percentage of their budget. Thats whos been most grievously impacted, he said. Will consider litigation at next meeting.tuary buildings roof, which is nearly a century old, is being replaced. The building has a terracotta roof which is being replaced. Terracotta is a type of clay-based ceramic which is used to create roof tiles. Robert Bass, First Baptist pastor, said a few years ago he and church officials began doing research on the churchs clay terracotta tile roof and learned some interesting facts. Those tiles are 93 years old and they came from South America, he said. In the 80s they took the tiles off, sprayed and pressure-washed them, laid down new felt and put those tiles back up there. The church was experiencing damage from where water was seeping inside. Just like the Blanche [Hotel] is getting a revitalization/makeover, First Baptist Church is getting a makeover, Bass said. Its going to be slow progress with us. Bass said if the church could keep the tiles and use them they would, but time has taken a toll on them. The reason why we are not putting tile back on is that some of them were broken and it might prove difficult to match them up, Bass said. The church plans to sell the tiles, but Bass said he doesnt know what to expect as a return from the sale. We hope to help recover some of what the new roof costs us, he said. The terracotta tiles will be replaced with a maroon-colored standing seam metal roof. ONeal Roofing started the project last week and its expected to be completed within a few weeks. Bass said the church and its members wanted to keep the building as close to original as possible. I the future, the church also plans to replace the roof on its fellowship hall. When you have a building thats almost 100 years old, you have to do maintenance on it sometimes, Bass said, noting that the terracotta tiles will be sold. This is really the first real maintenance in 100 years that weve had to build. Its a pay as you go. That way we can remain debt-free and do what God has called us to do. ROOFContinued From 1A Both were wearing seat belts and alcohol was not a factor in the 8:02 p.m. crash, FHP said. A two-vehicle crash on Interstate 10 in Suwannee County around 1:05 p.m. Sunday resulted in three people being taken to a Gainesville hospital with critical and serious injuries. Walter George, 22, of Gainesville, and Katira Sanders, 19, of Gainesville it is not clear who was driving, according to FHP were headed east on Interstate 10 with an infant, Kason George, in a 2017 Dodge Charger. Jeffrey Kromrey, 62, of Tampa, was also traveling east in a 2007 Toyota Corolla when the vehicles collided, causing the Charger to overturn in a ditch. Two of the Chargers occupants, including the infant, were airlifted to Shands Gainesville and the third was taken by ambulance. Kromrey was unhurt. FHP said the adults in the Charger were not wearing seat belts and it is not clear whether the infant was in a child seat at the time of the crash. WRECKSContinued From 1A

Salary range for city manager post to top $130KBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comLake Citys next city manager will likely have a base salary in the $80,000 to $130,000 range. Council members debated the issue while discussing traits they wanted to see in candidates for the position during a specially-called meeting Monday night. The meeting lasted just under an hour and allowed council members to take the next step in finding a new city manager to determine what information would be included in the application, confirm the application closing date (April 6), and determine how many candidates would be interviewed. In the search to replace retiring city manager Wendell Johnson, council members said they wanted to establish a salary range for the position to get serious inquiries. Johnson, who has indicated he plans to retire June 1, has a base salary is $114,751. Council members directed Michele Greene, of the citys human resources department, to edit and beef-up the advertisement for the position. She said the positions will be advertised with the International City and County Managers Association, Florida City and County Management Association, Florida League of Cities, Indeed as well as the Florida Public Human Resources Association. The council also authorized Greene to seek aid in finding potential candidates with help of the International City and County Management Associations Senior Advisor Program. Council members will then review the applications for a week and set up interviews with the top-ranked candidates. However, the council has not yet established what priorities the rankings will be given. Mayor Stephen Witt said he would like for the council to interview 10 people for the position. He said he would then like to have a public reception with the top two candidates.

Lewis (center) high-fiving pitcher CrisDeona Beasley as Lauren Hutcherson and Caroline Lewis close the circle during the Angela Slater Tournament over the weekend. By JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comTwo errors led to four runs, putting Fort White in a hole in the top of the fourth inning of Mondays District 5-5A contest against P.K. Yonge. But the Blue Wave returned the favor in the bottom half of the frame and then some. The Lady Indians struck for eight runs in the bottom of the inning, aided by two Blue Wave errors, and rolled from there to a 15-5 mercy-rule win in their home opener. Eleven batters came to the plate in the inning for Fort White, including Raven Miles twice for a solo home run and a two-RBI double. The teams combined for six errors on a sloppy night that was delayed a few minutes due to rain. I think the rain and kind of the delay, our routine was a little bit different today because we kind of waited for the rain to move. We started warming up in the rain and I think that kind of threw them, Fort White coach Michele Padgett said. Miles had a big night at the plate, finishing 3-for-4 with five RBI and two runs. She also had another two-RBI double in the fifth inning that put Fort White (3-2, 3-1) up 14-5 as P.K. Yonge pitcher Kaelynn Ayala squandered a 5-2 lead. That fourth inning was deflating a little bit. We were down a little bit. I dont know why were we down. I guess we were just expecting a win, Miles said. Ayala got Miles to ground into a double play in her first at bat of the night but that was all the senior third baseman needed to learn how to attack the Blue Waves ace again and again in the batters box. Miles homer led off the bottom of the fourth, giving life back to a Fort White dugout that just minutes earlier was deflated following P.K. Yonges four-run PREP SOFTBALL: Fort White 15, P.K.

NASCAR: Monster Energy CupHarvicks cup win finishes off dominant weekend at AtlantaBy CHARLES ODUMAssociated PressHAMPTON, Ga. Kevin Harvick had to wait 17 years for a second Atlanta salute to Dale Earnhardt. The memory brought tears to his eyes. In a reprise of the celebration of his first win in Atlanta in 2001, Harvick raised his three-finger salute to Earnhardt following his dominant victory Sunday in the rain-delayed NASCAR Monster Energy Cup race. Harvick completed his weekend mastery of Atlanta Motor Speedway by holding off Brad Keselowski following a late restart. Then he held the three fingers out the window, just as he did in 2001 when he gave the Richard Childress team an Atlanta win following the death of Dale Earnhardt in Daytona a few weeks earlier. The young Harvick took over Earnhardts car, with a new No. 29. Ending five years of frustration in Cup races in Atlanta was satisfying, but Harvick said the coolest part was being able to try to replicate that first win celebration. Harvick led 915 laps in Cup races in Atlanta over the last five years including 181 on Sunday but endured the long wait for his second win at the track. It brought back memories. That was the first win in my career and to be DONNY JOINER/Special to the ReporterFort Whites Raven Miles high-fives assistant coach Chad Padgett as she rounds third base following her home run during the fourth inning against P.K.

As recently as last week at Riviera, when Thomas was within range of the lead going into the final round, he said Woods sent him a text to dispense some advice and wish him well. That changed on the eve of the final round of the Honda Classic. Got crickets last night, Thomas said with a laugh. Thats because Woods was playing, and he was playing well. Just not as good as Thomas. Thomas delivered a moment that so many times belonged to Woods on Sunday. He was tied for the lead with Luke List on the par-5 18th at PGA National, with List already on the green and some 35 feet away for eagle while Thomas had to lay up from the rough. He needed a birdie to have any chance of a playoff, and his gap wedge from 117 yards was so pure that it rolled 6 inches by the cup and settled 2 feet away. I have a lot of confidence in my wedge game, Thomas said. I knew if I got a decent number that I was going to be able to get inside 10 feet. Thats all I wanted was a chance to try to get into a playoff. And then ended up hitting a great wedge. Given a second chance in a sudden-death playoff with his 2-under 68, the 24-year-old Thomas came through with another clutch shot. This one was a 5-wood over the water on the 18th, toward a bunker. Thomas barked at the ball to go a little further, just to be safe. It was getting pretty dark to where I couldnt see it, and as sad as it is, all I was looking at was the water to see if it splashed, Thomas said. And it didnt. So I figured I was in the bunker, and then people started clapping and I could kind of see some little white dot on the green. That effectively was the winning shot. List, who shot a bogeyfree 32 on the back nine for a 69, went wide right in a rare miss off the tee Sunday. He had few options except to go left near the grandstands, and from there he hit a superb shot to 25 feet to at least have a chance at birdie. He ran it by 6 feet, made par, and then watched Thomas twoputt for birdie and the win. Hell of a battle out there, Thomas said. He now has won for the second time this season on the PGA Tour, both times in a playoff. The other was the CJ Cup in South Korea. Thomas now has eight career victories, seven of them in his last 31 starts on tour. He moves to No. 3 in the world, significant only because he now is one spot ahead of longtime friend Jordan Spieth for the first time in their careers. Except that Thomas doesnt think its all that significant. Not really, he said. Because theres still two more spots that I want to climb. List was trying for his first victory, and he hit all the right shots after consecutive bogeys on the front nine. His only regret was missing the 18th fairway in the playoff, knowing that a birdie would be required to win. This one is going to sting a little bit, List said. But I found a restored passion for what I do out here. I gave it my best effort on every shot. As for Woods? He is at the stage in his comeback from a fourth back surgery that even finishing eight shots behind can be considered progress. Woods pulled to within three shots when he made an 8-foot birdie putt on No. 8, but that was only for a brief moment before Thomas rapped in a short birdie putt set up by another great wedge on the par-5 third hole. Woods again was done in by the Bears Trap, a stretch of holes at the end that feature a pair of par 3s over the water. For the second time this week, he came up short and into the water on the 15th hole and made double bogey. For the second time this week, he three-putted the 16th from long range for bogey. Woods wound up with a 70 and finished 12th. In three starts on the PGA Tour over the last five weeks, he tied for 23rd at Torrey Pines, missed the cut at Riviera and was 12th at PGA National. Woods said he would take off next week to work in the gym. His next appearance most likely will be at Bay Hill in three weeks. I made a big leap this week because I really hit it well, Woods said. I was able to control it, especially in this wind, which is not easy to do. But his presence remained as strong as ever, if not stronger. Thomas felt it walking to the fourth tee, which cuts across the ninth tee box. He heard the cheer for Woods birdie on No. 8. He saw the massive gallery with Woods on the next tee box. Just so happened we were crossing paths, Thomas said. Its funny how our gallery went with him, and Luke and I just kept playing. Thomas didnt seem to mind. Im sitting with the trophy, he said with a smile, so Im fine with it.ANDRES LEIVA/Palm Beach PostJustin Thomas receives the Honda Classic trophy from Honda President and CEO of Honda North America, Toshiaki Mikoshiba after winning the 2018 Honda Classic on the first playoff hole on Sunday at PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens.

New season revs up with a packed houseable to do that and pay tribute to Dale was pretty cool, Harvick said. Ive been waiting a long time to do that. He said he was emotional on Sunday because he was moved to see his team so happy. For me there was just a lot of happiness, Harvick said, adding Theres nothing better than seeing all those guys smile. The win came one week after Austin Dillon, who now has the No. 3 that Earnhardt made famous, won the Daytona 500 You see that 3 back in victory lane and us back in victory lane tonight, its almost, its how its meant to be, Harvick said, smiling. The win completed an impressive weekend for Harvick following a similarly dominant win in the second-tier Xfinity event on Saturday. Harvick started fourth in the Cup race and quickly proved he had the car to beat. Harvick was comfortably in the lead when Trevor Baynes engine blew with 28 laps to go. The restart gave contenders a chance to grab the lead, but Harvick beat Keselowski to remain in control. What a relief, Harvick told his crew after crossing the finish line. He led 292 laps in Atlanta last year before finishing ninth following a pit road speeding penalty. The start was delayed 2 hours, 30 minutes by rain. There was no additional significant rain until immediately after the race. Turns out Mother Nature is a race fan, said Clint Bowyer, who finished third, giving Ford drivers the top three spots. Denny Hamlin was fourth. Harvick showed his strength when he charged through the field after an unscheduled pit stop dropped him to 19th midway through the race. If he hadnt had the pit row issue today he probably would have led 300-something laps, Keselowski said. Rookie Darrell Bubba Wallace Jr., coming off a second-place finish at last weeks Daytona 500, finished 32nd. Wallace was the first black driver in the Daytona 500 field since 1969, and he became the first black Cup racer in an Atlanta race since Bill Lester finished 38th in 2006. Martin Truex Jr., the 2017 series champion, started 35th after failing to qualify on Saturday but was up to fourth by the 12th lap before finishing fifth. Jimmie Johnson, who won in Atlanta in 2015 and 2016, finished 27th. There were no wrecks but there was a caution after Johnsons spin in turn 2 on lap 160. With no open cars, the 36-car field was NASCARs smallest since 1996. HARVICK Continued From 5A Donnie Ashford was the street stock winner. Devin Walker was the e-mod winner. Eddie Gainey was the pure stock winner. Richard Ferry was the Florida late model winner.

8A LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS TU e E SD ayAY F e E B r R U aryAR Y 2 7, 2018 DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are 15 years apart in age. We have been together for six years, married a year and a half. He is my entire world, my best friend and soul mate. When we first met, he told me he didnt think he wanted another child (he has a daughter). I learned to accept it if I wanted to be with him. I had to be OK with being a stepmom and not having a child of my own. Fast-forward: Its six years later. His daughter (now 14) no longer comes around. (The ex-wife discouraged any relationship between my stepdaughter and me.) Im finding it harder and harder to cope with the fact that I dont have a child of my own. When I bring this up to my husband, he tells me, I told you in the beginning I didnt think I wanted another child. How do I deal with this? LONGING TO BE A MOM DEAR LONGING: Tell your husband that in the beginning when he told you he didnt think he wanted another child, you agreed because you thought you could accept it, but that as time has gone by, you no longer can. Then tell him you feel an important part of being a woman is being a mother. If he refuses to relent, then as much as you may love him, you may be married to the wrong man, and you will have to move on if you need to follow your biological imperative. DEAR ABBY: Can you please educate your readers about supermarket etiquette? Every time I buy groceries, I encounter people who push or park their carts in the middle of the aisle with no consideration for other shoppers. I also see them blindly blast through intersections in the aisles and barely avoid colliding with each other. A few weeks ago, I said to a gentleman, Pardon me, may I go around you? Thank you. He responded that I was the first person who had ever said that to him! Im surprised there arent more cases of road rage in supermarkets. My suggestion: Why dont we follow basic traffic rules in the supermarket? For example, stay to the right unless you are passing. Yield at intersections to the shopper on the right, etc. Also, whats your take on big kids riding in the grocery carts? DISGUSTED SHOPPER IN ILLINOIS DEAR DISGUSTED: What you describe happens when folks fail to consider how their behavior affects others. When someone blocks the aisle with a grocery cart, the logical way to deal with it is to say, Excuse me, please, which alerts the offender that there are others in the store besides him or her. Your suggestion that shoppers observe basic traffic rules is a good one particularly when it involves observing the speed limit. Charging through the intersections of the aisles could cause an accident in which another shopper is harmed. As to big kids riding in shopping carts, as long as they arent bothering other shoppers and the store doesnt care, I mind my own business.

FRANK & ERNEST FOR BETTER OR WORSE ZITS HAGAR THE HORRIBLE SNUFFY SMITH GARFIELD CLASSIC PEANUTS DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES | THE LA SS T WOR DD BB Y E U U GENIA LA S S T ARIES (March 21-April 19): Look for an event or activity that interests you and get involved. Dont feel like you have to have company to enjoy trying something different. Sometimes going it alone works in your favor and encourages new beginnings. T AURUS (April 20-May 20): Make observations, but not changes that will affect your home or those you love. Gather information and check out all your options. Being fully prepared to discuss what you want to do will help you gain the support necessary to follow through. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Stick close to those you can trust. Taking on a task that doesnt belong to you or giving in to someone who is untrustworthy will cause problems. Stay well-informed and dont be afraid to state facts if necessary. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Concentrate on what needs to be done. Dont dillydally or someone will complain that you arent pulling your weight. Open up about your likes and dislikes to avoid getting stuck with something you dont want. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Get into activities that require physical energy. Strive to be the best you can without giving in to expensive procedures that promise the impossible. Travel and spending should be minimized. Keep your feelings a secr et. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Spend time with the cherished people in your life and you will gain insight into the best ways to make personal improvements. Sometimes it takes others to point out our shortcomings. Strive to please those you love. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You can make a difference. Sign up for something that will give you a voice and contribute to a movement you want to join. Listen to good advice, but dont give up on something that you feel passionately about. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov 21): Instead of letting what others do upset you, put your energy into getting things done and accomplishing your goals. Being active will bring good results and help deter criticism from those expecting you to give up. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Emotional spending or trying to impress someone with gifts or a lavish lifestyle will put you in a vulnerable position. You cant buy love -you have to earn it through kindness and consideration. Refuse to let someone take advantage of you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Pull in the reins if you find that you are moving too fast. Take time to listen to what others have to say and to decipher the best way to move forward. Partnerships are not unilateral -it takes two to tango. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Make today more about the ones you love and appreciate and do something that will encourage better relationships. Personal changes can be made if you do the work required to improve your living space, appearance or attitude. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You know what you have to do, so dont hesitate to move forward. Put your own unique spin on whatever you do and you will stand out and make a statement that will separate you from the herd. Strive for positive change. Actress Joanne Woodward is 88.

She was kind of slow, so I started waiting a little bit, went back side and I just threw my hands up the middle and the ball went, Miles said of her home run. Savanna Terry also had a nice night at the plate, going 2-for-3 with two RBI and a run scored. She followed Miles dinger with a double and eventually came around to score on a passed ball to cut the deficit to 5-4. Shaylen Raulerson then reached on an error and Ayala loaded the bases with back-to-back walks to Jamie Tolkkinen and Calista Avery. Another P.K. Yonge error allowed Raulerson to score to tie the game and Aubrey Callum gave Fort White a 6-5 lead with an RBI single. Two batters later, Miles delivered two more runs in with a double and Terry scored two more with a triple before Ayala finally got P.K. Yonge (0-5, 0-3) out of the inning. Callum also delivered timely hits throughout the night, going 2-for-4 with four RBI that included a sacrifice fly in the third inning to put Fort White up 2-1. So far this year, thats happened every time. Whenever someone gets a good hit, it just gets the rally going, Padgett said. It shows them all they can do it. The Lady Indians scored four more runs in the fifth courtesy of Callums two-RBI single and Miles two-RBI double. The game ended in the sixth on Tolkinnens RBI triple following Raulersons double in the gap. Following P.K. Yonges four-run fourth, Fort White starting pitcher Shelby Dubose settled in and retired six of the final seven batters she faced. She struck out four on the night and gave up zero earned runs despite six hits and four walks. Dubose also did some damage at the plate with an RBI double in the first inning for the games first run. She was a little tough on herself tonight but she kept working through it and shes done real well this year, Padgett said. Weve got two other pitchers but Shelby was able to work it out and do fine. It was a bounce-back win for Fort White, which dropped a tough district contest to Santa Fe last week 10-9. That night also began slowly for the Lady Indians, who committed seven errors in the defeat that started with a 4-0 deficit. Somehow, some way or another, we have to find a way to get everything firing in the first inning instead of the fourth, Fort White assistant coach Chad Padgett said. Fort White hosts Palatka tonight at 6 p.m. INDIANS Continued From 5AFILEIndians mercy rule the BulldogsTyler Shelnut and the Fort White baseball team defeated Bell 10-0 in five innings on the road Monday night. The Indians improved to 2-1 on the season. Theyll host Santa Fe Thursday night in their District 5-5A opener.
