Thanks for reading.911 call center split on holdBy CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comInstead of a divorce, the Columbia County Sheriffs Office and the County Commission-controlled 911 call center will seek counseling. During a Thursday workshop focused on Sheriff Mark Hunters proposal to take over the law enforcement dispatch side of the operation and keep it separate from fire and ambulance services, the commission voted to put the plan on hold and instead form a working group to address Hunters frustrations with the 911 center. If we can make it work as is, Im OK with that, Hunter told the commission. Prior to the vote, Hunter outlined the main areas of concern that prompted him to ask for the split. The 911 center was placed under the commissions control around 2009. Hunter said he was a major advocate for the move at the time, but has constantly been left out of the loop with regard to the facility. He said he wasnt even aware there was a workshop scheduled about his proposal until the last minute, when he received an email from County Manager Ben Scott outlining Scotts analysis of how personnel and funds could be split between the county and Sheriffs Office. Hunter said he is responsible for ensuring the security of the law enforcement dispatch sys tem, but yet he has no control over it. He alluded to an incident in which a 911 center employee might have posted confidential information on social media, another issue involving an unauthorized, unsecured router being connected to a 911 center system, and said he wasnt consulted when a camera with remote-access capabilities was installed in the facility. I think its our collective responsibility to set this thing up for success, he said. The 911 centers director, Tom Brazil, said he is willing to consider any policy adjustment Hunter recommends and has worked with the Sheriffs Office to address its issues. Hunter and the county couldnt come to terms with how the funds and personnel should be split if the Sheriffs Office took over law enforcement dispatch. Hunter proposed a 50/50 split, but Scott said that plan would require the county to cut expenses elsewhere in its budget. Commissioner Rusty DePratter suggested Hunter and Brazil work together to fix problems with the 911 center instead of separating it into two entities. Im just not ready to break up yet, DePratter said. DePratter made a motion to form a working group consisting of Hunter, Brazil and Commissioner Bucky Nash, which will look into issues with the 911 center and come back to the commission with a recommendation in two months. Scott supported the idea. To me, that should be your starting point, Scott said. Commissioners voted unanimously in favor of the motion. Its too early in the game to throw in the towel, said County Commission Chairman Tim Murphy. Hunter DePratter million copies of her studio albums. Sony Records Its All Relative (a tribute to Pams now late father Mel Tillis) was USA Todays #4 Country Album of the Year. Pam recently released three albums from her own record label, Stellar Cat Records, landing her a #1 on the European ECMA Chart. Pam has been a CMA nominee 15 times and two time winner, a nine time Academy of Country Music Award nominee, a two time Grammy award winner and six time Grammy nominee, and an American Music Award nominee. Most recently she was a two time IBMA nominee and one time winner. As a songwriter, Pams songs have been recorded by respected names throughout all genres of music, shes a recurring guest on the TV show Nashville, per formed an extended run on Br oadway in New York in Smokey Joes Cafe and is a proud member of The Grand Ole Opry. In 2017 she released a new album, Loves Truckstop, toured with Terry Clark and Suzy Boggus on the Chicks with Hits Tour and the Grits and Glamour Tour with Lorrie Morgan as well as touring with her own Acoustic Trio and full band. TILLISContinued From 1A During the event, students visited five stations with forestry, aquatics, soils, wildlife and current issues (Rangeland Management: Balancing Diverse Views). Each of the stations had volunteers who prepared displays, exhibits and tests for the students in the particular subject areas. The volunteers make and grade their own tests, said Garrett McCray, Suwannee County Conservation District programs administrator. It could be identifying some equipment or some animals and there are also some basic environmental questions about the particular subject. Renae Allen, a Union County High School science teacher, was pleased that the Union County teams swept the event, taking first through third places. Im excited for the kids, she said. Theyve prepared for the past month and Im just really proud of them. The first place team, Team A-B from Union County, is eligible to participate in the state Envirothon on April 28, tentatively scheduled for Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park. FGCContinued From 1A and court services. But County Commission Chairman Tim Murphy said he had a big problem with the idea if it targets county busi nesses. Theyr e talking about suing our local pharmacy owners, Murphy said. I couldnt support it just for that fact. Avera & Smith wants to represent Columbia County in circuit court. The law firm would work on contingen cy, meaning the county would only pay if the lawsuit pr evails. Nationwide, the total value of lawsuits filed over the opioid crisis is estimated to be $100 billion, Foreman said. If any portion of that money is due to Columbia County, I think the board owes it to the citizens and the taxpayers to make that inquiry, Foreman said. PITCHContinued From 1A black lawmakers, some survivors of the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and others needs more work. Scott is touting an alternative plan that relies heavily on putting law enforcement officers in schools. If this devolves into a gun control debate, we are going to miss our opportunity to get something done. Whats different about the governors plan is that we are focusing on securing our schools, Petty, whose 14-year-old daughter Alaina was among the 17 people killed by gunman Nikolas Cruz on Feb. 14, told reporters after pleading with lawmakers in both chambers to pass a bill. But with little more than a week until the end of the legislative session on March 9, the school safety proposals which address a wide range of issues including mental-health screening and services and school hardening face pushback from politicians on both ends of the gun-control spectrum. Many House Republicans and the NRA are opposed to proposed regulations that would raise age requirements from 18 to 21 and impose a three-day waiting period for the purchase of rifles and other long guns. Proposals would also allow law enforcement officers to seize weapons from people who pose a danger to themselves or others and ban the sale of what are known as bump stocks. Democrats are frustrated because the proposals, crafted by Republican leaders, fail to include a ban on assault-style weapons such as the semi-automatic rifle used by Cruz in killing 14 students and three faculty members at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High. But much of the debate has focused on a contentious component of House and Senate proposals known as the school marshal program. It would allow specially trained teachers and other school workers, who are deputized by local law enforcement authorities, to carry guns to school, a program Scott, Democrats and many of the Parkland parents and students are shunning. I want to make sure that theres a law enforcement presence at our schools. I dont believe in arming the teachers. Ive been clear about that since I put out my proposal last week, Scott, flanked by Petty and Pettys son Patrick, told reporters after speaking during House and Senate floor sessions Thursday afternoon. Scott later summoned a half-dozen Republican and Democratic legislative leaders to his office, seeking input on how to ensure the passage of a school safety measure. The House and Senate are in negotiations about their bills, which would allow school boards to decide whether they want to implement the marshal program. If school boards opt for the plan, the House proposal would require sheriffs to participate, while the Senate proposal would not. The House was supposed to begin debate today on its measure (HB 7021) but instead will wait until the Senate acts on its version, according to House Rules & Policy Chairman Jose Oliva, R-Miami Lakes. The conversation has been about making sure that our bills line up, so that we can take up a bill that we can all agree on, at least in large part, and that we can pass out of the House, Oliva told the House on Thursday.

Putin on Russias new nukes : It isnt a bluffBy VLADIMIR ISACHENKOVAssociated PressMOSCOW An underwater drone armed with a nuclear warhead powerful enough to sweep away coastal facilities and aircraft carriers. A hypersonic vehicle impossible to intercept as it flies in a cloud of plasma like a meteorite. President Vladimir Putin said Thursday that Russia has these new strategic weapons and many more, declaring: No one has listened to us. You listen to us now. Putin unveiled the stunning catalog of doomsday machines in his annual state-of-the-nation speech, saying that Russia had to build them to counter the potential threat posed by the U.S. missile defense system. And in a touch of dark humor, he invited Russians to join a Defense Ministry contest to name some of the weapons. It wasnt immediately possible to assess whether the weapons could do what Putin said or how ready they are for deployment, but they would represent a major technological breakthrough that could dramatically bolster Russias military capability, boost its global position and trigger a new arms race. The White House said Putin confirmed what the U.S. has already known: that Russia has been developing destabilizing weapons systems for over a decade in direct violations of its treaty obligations. Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said President Donald Trump understands the threats and that America is moving forward to modernize our nuclear arsenal and ensure our capabilities are unmatched. Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White also said the Defense Department wasnt surprised, adding that the U.S. military is prepared to defend the nation. White told Pentagon reporters that U.S. missile defense has never been about Russia. Washington has consistently argued that missile defense systems in Europe arent aimed at Moscow but designed instead to defend against threats from Iran, North Korea and rogue threats. Putin has shrugged off those arguments and said Thursday that the U.S. plans to develop its missile defense system would eventually devalue the Russian nuclear arsenal if we sit with our arms folded. He said the U.S. has underestimated Russias ability to mount a response, aiming for a unilateral military advantage that could eventually allow it to dictate its terms in other areas. The United States should now revise its Russia policy and engage in a serious dialogue on global security, he said. You will have to assess that new reality and become convinced that what I said today isnt a bluff, he said. Its not a bluff, trust me. He said the creation of the new weapons has made NATOs U.S.-led missile defense useless, putting an end to what he described as years of Western efforts to sidetrack and weaken Russia. I want to tell all those who have fueled the arms race over the last 15 years, sought to win unilateral advantages over Russia, introduced unlawful restrictions and sanctions aimed to contain our countrys development: All what you wanted to impede with your policies has now happened, he said. You have failed to contain Russia. Putins dramatic announcement comes as he seeks another six-year term on March 18, an election he is expected to win easily. His address was accompanied by videos and computer simulations of the new weapons, shown on giant screens at a conference hall near the Kremlin. The audience of senior officials and lawmakers broke into applause, giving him a standing ovation at one point. No one else in the world has anything like that, Putin said. It may appear someday, but by that time, we will develop something new. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said it was unfortunate to watch animation depicting a nuclear attack on the United States that accompanied Putins speech, calling the video cheesy and adding that we dont think its responsible. Putin said the nuclear-powered cruise missile, which was tested last fall, has a practically unlimited range, and its high speed and maneuverability allow it to pierce any missile defense. The high-speed under water drone also has an intercontinental range and is capable of slamming a nuclear warhead into both aircraft carriers and coastal facilities, he said. Its very big operational depth and a speed that is many times faster than any other vessel would make it immune to being intercepted by the enemy, he added.TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICEOne of the new nuclear weapons that Russia President Vladimir Putin unveiled on Thursday.
I trudged along through the gloomy halls of a government building and stepped into the little cubicle of the clerk I needed to meet with. I took a seat and glanced at the board over her desk. It was scattered with a few pretty pictures, and lots of little printed slogans, quotes, or sayings thumbtacked up there. These short uplifting and sometimes humorous notes talked to me: A stitch in time saves nine. You dont know if you like it, till you taste it. Its always darkest before dawn. Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Yes, youve heard a lot of them. Are they trite? I dont think so. The longer I live, the more wisdom and meaning I see in them. She came to her desk, with a pleasant How can I help you? I mentioned the sayings on her walls, and let her know that her ray of sunshine was welcome in my day. She was bright and cheery, and helpful. She explained how she appreciates being reminded now and then throughout her day how good life really is, and how these quotes help her enjoy people, her job, and her own life. These one-liners can be catchy, instant, simple reminders of some of the most important things in life. Theyre time tested, and tried-andtrue bits of wisdom. Theyre easy to remember, and can be so handy when we face difficulties, lifes problems, or obstacles that come up during your week. Remember your mom telling you You dont know if you like it, until you taste it? That thought can help you meet new ideas, new situations, and new peopleand have instant advice to give it a chance. Today is the first day of the rest of your life! That reminds us that we are a different person today than we were when we were teenagers, or even yesterday. And every moment, of every day, you have a choice of what to make of it, and what to do. We arent bound tightly by the past. You can always do more than you think you can. Heres a quarter; tell someone who cares! Isnt it true, that we get more help and satisfaction when we work through issues with someone close to us, than someone who really has no dog in that hunt? What can you do? Collect some one-liners of your own. Youre familiar with some of them. Could they help you today? Measure twice, cut once. That tells you to think carefully before making an impulsive, thoughtless decision. Its darkest before the dawn. That helps you realize that sadness or pain you feel now is probably temporary, and tomorrow will be a beautiful new day. I like the saying: When you point the finger of blame at someone, remember that 3 of your own fingers point back at you. And in recent years, one of my very favorites is: Always do the right thing! What are your favorites? Put them on the wall over your desk. Or stick them on your fridge. Put some on your bathroom wall, to see the first thing every morning. Ask yourself now and then: Which one helped you today? Which one can help you right now? Whats your favorite? Have you created one of your own? Call or email me with yours, and Ill gather a few and share them in one of my articles, for everyone to see and appreciate. These little sayings can instantly bring to mind those good positive psychology and positive living feelings, that can elevate our happiness and make our lives a little better and more fulfilling.It got relatively little attention at the time, but two proclamations that President Donald Trump signed in January could have a large effect on your wallet. The proclamations in question impose tariffs and quotas on imports of solar cells and modules, large residential washers, and washer parts. Solar cells and modules will see a tariff of 30 percent after the first 2.5 gigawatts. Washers will be tariffed at 20 percent for the first 1.2 million units, and then at 50 percent for all additional imports. Washer parts will have a tariff of 50 percent after 50,000 units. These tariffs are a major misstep by the administration. They will negatively affect Americans in at least the following five ways. 1. Fewer jobs. The Solar Energy Industries Association estimates that these solar tariffs will cause the loss of roughly 23,000 American jobs this year, including many in manufacturing, and it will result in the delay or cancellation of billions of dollars in solar investment. Jobs at Sears Corp., a major supplier of washers in the U.S., are also at risk as a result of the tariffs on washers. Sears recently awarded a contract to LG for the production of some of Sears own Kenmore brand of washers. LGs Kenmore washers are imported from South Korea, a U.S. trade partner that not exempt from the presidents actions. Making it more expensive for LG to import the washers it produces for Kenmore, one of Sears most popular product lines, will jeopardize the retailers efforts to revitalize its brand. 2. Higher prices. During a recent Heritage Foundation event, Paul Nathanson a partner at the Policy Resolution Group at Bracewell LLP, a Houstonbased international law firm noted that the purpose of tariffs is to raise the price of a product. This statement is already proving to be true. A memo from LG to U.S. retailers relayed that (a)s a result of the trade situation, we will be initiating pricing actions, which will be sent under separate cover shortly. LG is expected to raise published retail prices on at least some of its washer and dryer models by approximately $50. 3. Fewer choices. A common misconception with the new tariffs is that they target unfairly traded goods from China. While imports from China will be restricted, these tariffs actually apply to imports from every country. The only exception is Canada, which was exempt from the tariffs on washers. This means that imports of solar panels and modules, as well as washers, will be penalized even if they are being sold at market value. The debate over tariffs boils down to whether government should override consumer choices in the marketplace. 4. Retaliation from partners. Following President George W. Bushs decision to impose tariffs on steel imports in 2002, the European Union threatened to retaliate with tariffs on American goods from vital states for the next presidential election, such as orange juice, textiles and Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Within days of Trumps new tariffs on solar panels, modules, and washers, South Korea one of Americas free trade partners filed consultation requests with the World Trade Organization. According to the Financial Times: South Koreas request for consultations means that, unless it backs down in the next 60 days, the U.S. will face a potentially bitter fight. 5. More tariffs in the future. Imposing tariffs unilaterally sets a dangerous precedent. Tariffs should not be used to reward companies and industries that prioritize lobbying the government over innovation. With these tariffs, the administration has opened the door for more companies to petition for tariffs to protect their own special interests. While we will not know the full consequences of these tariffs for many months, the choice to reward special interests over the American economy as a whole was a poor one. It should not be the role of the president, or Congress, to tip the scale toward one American industry or interest group over another.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman One-liners for positive living OUR OPINIONGet along but dont compromise The County Commission refused to grant a divorce on Thursday afternoon, insisting the sheriffs office and the 911 call center find a way to work out their troubles. Good advice especially since commissioners and the sheriffs office couldnt reach a deal on funding for a split system in which CCSO handles law enforcement calls and county workers perform dispatch duties for ambulance and fire. For now, everything will remain in the county commissions hands. Get along may be good advice, but it doesnt mean giving an inch on standards or professionalism. If this partnership, strained from the start, is ever to work, better oversight of the center is called for. First, no more bringing routers from home to make online shopping easier during working hours. That one should go without saying, but apparently not. One such episode went on for months or longer before it was finally discovered last year in a debacle that county government wont soon live down. Also, dispatchers must take care not to post potentially sensitive information about work-related incidents on their personal Facebook pages. This one no one knew about until Sheriff Mark Hunter mentioned it during his presentation yesterday to commissioners. Again, no apparent harm done, but who knows whats coming next. Enough with the surprises. This partnership can work. But it needs to work on professional terms and standards with no compromise where it counts. Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY TODAY IN HISTORY Higher tariffs mean higher prices, fewer jobs Heritage Foundation Higher tariffs mean higher prices, fewer jobs On this date: In 1793, the first president of the Republic of Texas, Sam Houston, was born near Lexington, Virginia. In 1836, the Republic of Texas formally declared its independence from Mexico. In 1877, Republican Rutherford B. Hayes was declared the winner of the 1876 presidential election over Democrat Samuel J. Tilden, even though Tilden had won the popular vote. In 1939, the Massachusetts legislature voted to ratify the Bill of Rights, 147 years after the first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution had gone into effect. (Georgia and Connecticut soon followed.) In 1965, the movie version of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The Sound of Music, starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, had its world premiere in New York.

Please read Matthew 16:13-20. Jesus tells Peter and the disciples that he will use them to build his church and that death will not be able to overcome it. Jesus will use his disciples as the foundation to build his church on discipleship and evangelism with Jesus himself as the chief corner stone. The Apostle Paul writes to the Ephesian believers that they are members of Gods household built on the foun dation of the apostles and pr ophets with Jesus Christ himself as the chief cornerstone (Eph. 2:19-20). Jesus used his disciples then and uses his disciples today to build the church. He is the one who builds his church the way he wants to. Sometimes as pastors we are so interested in build ing our kingdom instead of Jesus kingdom that the chur ch suffers. He uses those disciples who are obedient to him. As we obey the great commission, put into practice what his word teaches us as he builds his church. Notice that when we read the book of Acts, Jesus used Peter on the day of Pentecost to preach to the Jews in Jerusalem. Jesus used Peter and John in Acts 8 to confirm Gods work among the Samaritans. Again, it was Peter that Jesus used to take the mes sage to the Gentiles in Acts 10. Even today Jesus uses his disciples to accomplish his plans and purposes. Jesus gave Peter and the disciples the authority to teach and to govern the church that he was building. He gives the keys to Peter and the disciples so that they can let people enter the kingdom of heaven. Unlike the religious leaders of their day who didnt enter the kingdom of heaven, they didnt let others enter either. This authority to let people into heaven has been passed down to each disciple. You as a disciple of Jesus Christ have received the authority from him to go and make disciples by teaching people to obey his commands. The question becomes am I obeying the com mands of God myself so that others will see and follow my example? Y ou have to ask this of yourself, dont just leave it up to the Sunday School teacher and the preacher. He also gave his disciples the ability to govern the church that he was building. The early church practiced church discipline as we read in the book of Acts. We read about church discipline with Anaias and Sapphira, and Simeon the Magician who thought that the Holy Spirit could be bought. Jesus taught church discipline in Matthew 18 and Paul expounded on it and practiced it in the early church. Church discipline is seldom practiced today because we dont want to take the sin out of life, but when we deal with our sin, we can clearly see how to help others take the sin out of their lives. Robert Bass is pastor of First Baptist Church of Lake City. Robert Bassrobertcbass@yahoo.com What is televisions Joy Behar hearing?When Joy Behar, one of the co-hosts on the daytime talk show The View, likened Vice President Mike Pences hearing Jesus to a mental illness, the Christian blogosphere lit up like a Christmas tree. In time, one Christian leader after another commented on what Joy said and most seemed outraged. A pastor and mentor of mine once said when confronted with an issue, he often takes time to reflect on it before returning an answer. I follow that advice more as I grow older and hopefully wiser, so I did not jump on the condemnation bandwagon with the others. It was one of two topics I prayed about writing on last week, but both were eclipsed by the passing of Billy Graham. But what Christians mean when we say we hear God needs to be clarified. We need to put things in perspective. Joy, like fellow co-host Whoopi Goldberg, is a comedienne, not a Christian theologian. Based on the things she says, she is not even a genuine believer. In short, she does not know what she is talking about. I do not watch The View, I read about what Joy said in a news report. I was no more offended by what she said than I would be by a blind man that stepped on my foot, or a deaf person who ignores me when I speak to them. I expect worldly people to say worldly things, and not understand what we believe; its their nature. Knowing that, I do not waste my time watching a program that mocks and demeans everything I cherish and hold to be holy. So if you claim to be a Christian and you choose to watch a show that offends your Christian sensibilities, dont whine about it, repent. You need to be listening to God and not listening to Joy! Oprah Winfrey has said she will not run for president unless God tells her to and I think she and Joy are cut from the same political cloth. But if she does hear from God, Ill give odds that Joy Behar will flip-flop on the idea that hearing from God is a mental illness faster than you can say, Oprah for President. CHRISTIAN CONCEPTS Gary Kinggarybkingcc@gmail.comParables offer us very valuable lessonsThe parable of the Prodigal Son is perhaps one of the most familiar stories in the Bible. It has long been the focus of many Sunday School lessons and sermons about how Gods forgiveness is waiting for a person who has strayed from their faith, if only they will return to Him. This message is without a doubt THE message of the Bible. God absolutely wants those far from Him to know that He loves them and longs for them to return. And yet, Jesus told this story for another purpose. It seems that a group who considered themselves very close to God had a problem with how Jesus was spending His time: Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him. And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying This man received sinners and eats with them, Luke 15:1-2. The Pharisees and scribes were the religious leaders of the day, tending to all things spiritual. They knew which prayer to say when, which i to dot and t to cross. They knew the answers to the hard questions about what was right or wrong, and they worked hard to get it right. So, it is easy to understand their frustration when Jesus shows up and spends most of his time hanging out with sinners. In true fashion, Jesus answered their complaint with a series of parables. This time about a lost sheep, a lost coin and a lost son. With the lost sheep and lost coin, He points out the desire to celebrate how we feel over finding something that was lost. We can all relate to the elation of finally finding lost keys, a lost wallet or anything necessary and valuable after an exhaustive search. In fact, the sheep and the coin had this in common: both were found by someone diligently searching. But then we come to the prodigal. Take a closer look at the story in Luke 15:11-24. Something was lost, something is found, and then a celebration follows. Much like the sheep and coin, except the prodigal found his way back to the Father.

But then we hear a complaint. The older br other who has stayed at home and taken care of the fields is not celebrating that his wayward brother has come home. After all, he has been the one working hard to take care of everything while he was off having fun. Sound familiar? The Pharisees and scribes sound a lot like older brothers. Many of us may relate to how the older brother and the religious leaders felt. Maybe we have felt the same resentment over sacrificing to do the right thing while others seem to be having such fun doing the wrong things. What changes everything here is the view of the Father about those right things. Is doing the right thing checking off the list or checking with the Fathers heart? Yes, the younger brother wasted his portion, but the portion that was left consumed all the older brothers time and energy. He was taking care of his inheritance, when perhaps his father wished he would go look for his brother. Isnt that what Jesus did? He came looking for us, and I am so thankful. Jesus message to the religious leaders was subtle but clear. Our inheritance from our Father is eternal life. It is a gift and cannot be earned by working hard to do everything right. Gods heart is that we value it enough to search for those far away from Him and celebrate being found. Because every heart matters. Heart Matters is a weekly column written by Angie Land, director of the Family Life Ministries of the Lafayette Baptist Association. Continued From 5A One of the ways God speaks to us is through His word. Seven times Jesus tells the seven churches of Revelation, He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches, Revelation 2:7. Jesus was warning the churches. He tells the church of Ephesus, you have left your first love [Christ Jesus]. Therefore repent and do the deeds you did at first, Revelation 2:4-5. Jesus also said an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs will hear His voice, John 5:28. Everyone, including Joy, will hear Gods voice on judgment day. What you hear then will be determined by how well you listen now. Gary B. King can be reached at garybkingcc@ gmail.com. Continued From 5A Spiritual Life: Keep tacking in headwinds of distressI am not a sailor. I have been on a sailboat a couple times, helping (I hope) crew on the Columbia River in Wallula Gap, Washington. While that does not make me a sailor, I did learn at least one thing beyond watching the boom and not falling in. I learned the essential function of tacking, of shifting the boats direction back and forth as you faced the wind and made your way toward the next buoy or finish line. You cant sail directly into forcefully moving air; you have to go at an angle, using the new set of the sail to make headway. What a crucial metaphor for how we adapt our lives and move forward. Even as water is required for existing and for boating, obviously so too is wind. The breezes that blow are vital to sailing and to sustaining life. Etymologists note that in Hebrew (ruah) and Greek (pneuma), and Latin (spiritus), Wind and Breath and Spirit are similar words. These three factors are mutually essential for human existence. The late physician and author, Paul Kalanithi, illustrated this interrelatedness in his memoir, When Breath Becomes Air (published posthumously in 2016). The human spirit springs forth when Gods Spirit breathes life into being and we take our first breath we inspire (and then cry!). Our spirits are sustained through all our days; we continue to aspire as we grow and move and fade. And our spirits are released to their Maker when we breathe our last as we expire. Which brings me back to tacking the sailboat on the river. I think about the need for changing directions when, as a hospital and hospice chaplain, I work with persons and families who are facing the biggest headwinds of their lives: the awful reality of curative futility. In the words of research psychologist Shane J. Lopez, they are realizing that all forms of treatment have been tried and all tests point to failing health and imminent death. A pediatric palliative care physician teaches families to reinvest their hopes in a new goal: helping their child die peacefully. When families regoal, they take the support and energy they have devoted to keeping their child alive and redirect it to letting the child go peacefully. (Making Hope Happen, 2013, p. 186). Regoal, reinvest, redirect these are as necessary to living in the face of lifes headwinds as tacking is to sailing. The spirit-winds always are bringing changes, opportunities, challenges, and even threats to overturn our homemade crafts. Try as we might, even with all of our might, we cannot sail straight into the winds of suffering and dying and death. We have to tack. We have to regoal and reinvest and redirect. We have to let go of some of our dreams in order to make our best possible future (Lopez). In the face of the headwinds of distress, let us keep on tacking, for this is how we survive and thrive as beloved, believing, hopeful people. Timothy J.

By JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comDylan Blair missed the game of baseball last season. Columbias shortstop sat out his sophomore year but returned in 2018, hoping to fit back in on the club that welcomed him back. So on Tuesday night, with the bases loaded in a scoreless game in the sixth inning against district rival Gainesville, Blair had his chance. And he delivered. Blair lined a ball from pitcher Payton Weinberg right back up the middle to score two runs, propelling the Tigers to a 2-0 win over the Hurricanes in their District 3-7A opener at home. After Columbia pitcher Micah Kreighauser held Gainesville at bay for the entire night, Cal Gilliam shut the door in the seventh with two strikeouts for the save in the first of two games in as many days between the teams. I just thought about how I missed last year and this being my first district game back, I had to do something big for the boys, Blair said. He had two strikes on me so I had to spread out and locate it. The game looked as if it would remain scoreless heading to the seventh until Weinberg walked Gilliam with two outs. Tate Worrell followed with a single and Weinberg then hit Sammy Walker with a pitch to load the bases to set up the By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE Even on a frigid night with windy weather, pitcher Tyler Shelnut had no trouble pounding the strike zone. The sophomore ace struck out all three batters in the opening side, finding his rhythm against district rival Santa Fe. His commanding presence on the mound never wavered either. Shelnut made quick work of the Raiders, tallying a season-high 14 strikeouts, which was enough to lift the Indians to a 2-1 District 5-5A victory over Santa Fe Thursday night. He goes right at people, Fort White head coach Rick Julius said of Shelnut. Hes got a great baseball smartness, exposes weaknesses and goes right at them. Shelnut, who gave up only three hits, shined in the batters box too. His third inning RBI double got the Indians (3-1,1-0) on the scoreboard first and later proved to be critical in the one-run home opener win over the Raiders (1-4, 0-2). Its all about staying focused, Shelnut said. You lose focus and thats when stuff goes wrong. The big Lake City Reporter SPORTS Friday, March 2, 2018 www.lakecityreporter.com Section B Story ideas?

Worrell, along with Jacob Garnier, scored on Dylan Blairs single with the bases loaded. Columbia pitcher Micah Kreighauser struck out eight Gainesville batters to pick up the win Tuesday. By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporterIts going to take time to build a reputable golf program at Florida Gateway College. Yet the Timberwolves continue to take the steps necessary slowly transforming the previously dormant program into one of the better junior colleges in North Florida. After finishing last in each of their events during the fall, FGCs golf team improved by capturing sixth place in last weekends Start 2 Finish Golf Classic in Lake Wales. For us, being young team and a start-up program, thats pretty good, FGC head coach John Reger said. Against some four-year schools like Webber and Saint Thomas University, the Timberwolves fared well in their first event of the year. FGC was led by Jacob Whann, the teams No.1 golfer who transferred in from Andrews College. Whann anchored his team, tying for 11th place overall with a combined score of 229. Jacob played well, Reger said of Whann, who finished the first round with an impressive 71 score. The first round he shot one under par (71). And I was kidding around, but its kinda true, I told Jacob he has set the school record for the modern era. [FGC] hasnt had a golf team, I think, since the late 70s. So, its been a while, forty years, so we kick all this to the modern era. While he had an impressive first round, Whann fell behind in the second and third round. After previously being tied for the lead on Day 1, the FGC standout later struggled some on the back nine, including a rough stretch down the 16th hole. But he followed up with a birdie on the 17th, so we call that the bounce back, Reger said. So he shot an 80 on [Day 3] and he was disappointed with that. But he played pretty well. In fact, he shot a 34 on the front nine in the first round. Right now hes got the school record for the low front nine, low 18, low 36, and low 54. Everyone else can chase after that from here on out. FGC ended with a total team score of 996, finishing ahead of Warner University (1005) and SUNY Delhi (1010). FreedHardeman University took first place (894). Whann was backed up on the course by teammates Karl Anderson (T-24), John Norris (37), Nic Tyre (39) and Harrison Shubert (40). It Whann helps FGC place sixth last weekend at the Start 2 Finish Golf Classic.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Handle your colleagues and peers with caution. Dont feel like you have to share personal information if you dont trust a situation or someone you are dealing with. Listen car efully and move forward. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): What you do for others will not go unnoticed. A kind word or offering something special to someone you like will improve your relationship. Love and romance are highlighted and should be handled responsibly. Share your feelings and intentions. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Youll get taken advantage of if you are too eager to please or if you take on tasks that dont belong to you. Anger will eventually set in if you end up doing the brunt of the work. Emotional blackmail is apparent. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Make a point to include someone you love in a business function. It will help you fit in better with those you work with and encourage your personal ally to take on new professional challenges. Romance is in the stars. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Communications can go either way. Strive to remain calm, offer what you can and walk away from anyone who is being unreasonable. Be cautious while traveling or dealing with emotional matters that could af fect your status and reputation. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Partnerships should be your primary concern. Whether you are looking for love or ar e already in the midst of a relationship with someone, ironing out any issues that need adjusting will make your life better. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Whether you are looking for love or friendship, consider including someone you are close to in your plans. Befor e you let your imagination run wild, however, consider the risks of pursuing something questionable. Secrets are best kept that way. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Make time for the ones you love. Whether you make plans to spend time with children, friends or your romantic partner, live in the moment and share your feelings and future plans. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Emotions will escalate if you get into discussions with friends, relatives or your immediate family. Dont let tempers mount. Instead, let everyone calm down and rethink whats at stake before you continue. Time is on your side. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You can turn your dream into a reality. Your sensitivity toward those you deal with will make a difference in the outcome of a situation you are trying to manipulate. An open and honest approach will lead to personal success. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Channel your energy into activities that will stimulate you mentally, physically and emotionally, and it will diminish a tendency someone has to derail your plans. A personal change will make you feel confident and content with your accomplishment. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Stay calm, focused and refuse to let anyone goad you into an argument. Have a plan in place and stick to what you know you can accomplish. Personal growth will come from the ability to know your limits and your strengths. DEAR ABBY: Occasionally, married friends will come to my husband and/or me vent ing about their marital pr oblems. We have been through a few rough patches during our 12 years of mar riage, and during those times, we sought help from family, friends and counselors. Today I can honestly say we are happier than ever and willing to stick thr ough the ups and downs. We try to pass along the things that helped us, but a lot of times well see one spouse wanting to work on improving the marriage and the other one oblivious or unwilling to do anything about it. I think our experience could help the spouses of our troubled friends see that things can work out by doing something about it, but I never know if or how to appr oach the subject with them. Should we keep our mouths shut and just be there for the unhappy friend, or is there a proper way to reach out to their spouse with an offer of support in situations like this? TRUL Y WANTING TO HELP DEAR TRULY WANTING: My advice would be to stay out of the line of fire. If you reach out to the unhappy spouse, who may be unaware that his or her marital problems were revealed to you, it will be regarded as intrusive. By all means tell the person asking your advice what worked for you, but leave it up to that person to convey it to his or her spouse. DEAR ABBY : What is the etiquette when eating at a restaurant where a piano player is performing? I dont mean the bar scene-type piano player who wants the cr owd to sing along, but more of a midto upscale type of place. Theres a restaurant like this in my town the only one with a piano. On one special occasion when we were there, the piano player was playing Misty and a woman sitting nearby with her party wanted to make herself heard over him. She began talking very loudly to her group while he was playing the song. I thought it was tacky, and if I had been sitting near her, I would have shushed her up. Isnt it polite to wait until the piano player is finished befor e talking loudly at your table? Whatever happened to behaving with a little class in r estaurants? DEANNA IN OKLAHOMA DEAR DEANNA: The musician in that restaurant was there to provide mood music for the diners. If they chose to talk while he was playing, it was their privilege. The woman may have raised her voice because someone in her par ty had a hearing problem. For you to have taken it upon yourself to shush her up would have been rude, and for your sake, Im glad you refrained from doing it. DEAR ABBY: Am I overreacting to my husbands request that I take down photos of my mom and grandpar ents when his mom visits? They are displayed in our guest bed room. I think his request was r ude. I wonder if his mother even cares or if he just feels guilty. Its my house, too. RELUCTANT IN TEXAS DEAR RELUCTANT: Rather than remove your family photos, why not compromise by adding a couple of pictures of your husbands mother, too? Im sure she would be pleased to see them. Problem solved. DEAR ABBY: I have a crush on a guy I work with. Im 19, and hes 26. He has a kid, which actually doesnt bother me. I love kids and have taken care of them most of my life. My problem is he has this ex who wants to get back together with him. They broke up because she was staying out all night and cheating. He used to flirt with me and text me all the time and offer me his hoodie. Now shes sort of back in the picture and he ignores me and doesnt return my texts. But when we see each other he starts flirting again, and we just click. We make sense. I guess my question is, should I tell him how I feel before its too late or just keep it to myself? Should I risk everything and go for it? UNCERTAIN IN NEW YORK DEAR UNCERTAIN: Announce your feelings for the guy if you wish, but do not expect him to drop everything and rush to you. If he were interested in more than a workplace flirtation, he would be paying the same kind of attention to you that he did before. Because he isnt, you need to understand that he and his ex obviously have some unfinished business together regardless of her history of infidelity. Set your sights on someone else. DEAR ABBY : All my mom does is talk about work. If we are having a conversation, she links every topic to her work and her co-workers. It is alienating my sister and me. When we tell her things about our kids her grandkids she still relates it to work. Another thing: Shes constantly on her tablet for work or on Facebook. I live seven hours away from her. When we make the drive down, I dont want to watch her on her tablet. If we try to confront her on anything, all she does is cry. Mom and I had a good r elationship before she took that job. Now shes so negative that its difficult to want to talk to her. Where do I even start? MISSING HER WHILE SHES HERE DEAR MISSING: Rather than confront your mother, ask her what may have changed in her life since she took that job. Her focus may have shifted because thats the center of her activity. Conversations are two-way, and this may be all she feels she has to contribute on her end. As to her hiding behind Facebook rather than carry on a conversation with you, like many people, she may have become addicted to it and unable to tear herself away. However, you will never know unless you ask her calmly.

PETERSBURG (AP) Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Dante Fowler has been sentenced to a year of probation and 75 hours of community service for a parking lot attack on a man. News outlets report Fowler was sentenced Thursday after pleading no contest to misdemeanor charges of battery, criminal mischief and petty theft. He could still be disciplined by the NFL. St. Petersburg police say Fowler was arrested last July after confronting a man who made a comment about his driving in a parking lot. Authorities say Fowler exchanged words with the man before hitting him. Police say the mans glasses were knocked off and Fowler stepped on them before taking a grocery bag from the man and tossing it in a lake. Fowler played for the University of Florida and was the Jaguars first-round draft pick in 2015.HOF QB Kelly says tests show return of cancerBUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Buffalo Bills Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly has once again been diagnosed with oral cancer. Kelly released a statement Thursday through his publicist saying he is shocked and deeply saddened by the news, and vows to once again fight to overcome the disease. He did not go into specifics on the diagnoses except to say the cancer was discovered follow ing a test. The diagnosis comes a few weeks after Kelly celebrated his 58th birthday. Kelly had been cancer-free since September 2014 but had been required to undergo routine follow-up testing. He was first diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma, which led to him having sur gery to have a portion of his upper jaw removed in June 2013. Follow-up tests nine months later showed the cancer spread to his sinus, which led to radiation and chemotherapy treat ments. Kelly lost 70 pounds while being treated. The effects of the cancer and treatments led to Kelly having trouble speaking. He could also no longer produce saliva and had lost the sense of taste.Arizona decides to keep Miller as coachTUSCON, Ariz. (AP) Arizona coach Sean Miller vehemently denied a report claiming he discussed a six-figure payment to a recruit on Thursday. Less than three hours later, the school president announced Miller will remain as the 19th-ranked Wildcats coach. After a one-game absence, Miller was back on the side lines when the Wildcats played Stanford on Thursday night in Tucson. The McKale Center crowd stood and cheered as Miller entered the arena just before the pre-game national anthem. He waved to the fans as his players smiled and clapped.ROUNDUP was solid outing from the young bunch last weekend. The Timberwolves didnt go home with any hardware, but the team and more importantly, the program took another step forward. This was a four-year school tournament, and we beat a few four-year schools so it was good, Reger said about improvement. We played better, we got a little bit better See, you got to get yourself on the map. I got recruits coming in for next year and Im still recruiting now. So next years team will be really stronger, a lot stronger than this one I think. Due to a late start, FGC was hindered on the recruiting trail in its first season in decades this past fall. Reger, along with the team, have has since spread word about the team and what the school has to offer. The first-year coach says with an established program now its not as hard to intrigue potential recruits to Lake City. Its competitive out there when youre recruiting, he said. But the unusual thing for us is that were a new mens golf program. And you dont start many of those up in the country, so thats pretty cool that were able to do that. Were attracting a lot of attention now. The Timberwolves finish out the season early next month, playing a few one-day tournaments over the next five weeks. All five of FGCs golfers will be moving on this May, making way for a new crop of guys next season, when the D-II squad will be eligible for postseason play. Newberry senior standouts Brandon Bulla and Sam Stark have already signed on to play at FGC where things are looking up. Its a great opportunity for kids to get themselves established academically, and also compete. FGC Continued From 1B games dramatic moment. With Jacob Garnier pinch running for Gilliam, Blair came up with the games biggest hit to score Garnier and Worrell and put Columbia (4-0, 1-0) ahead. Im getting too old for this. Thats what all these white hairs are. Thats why I had to shave it off, it was getting too white, Columbia coach Brian Thomas said. But that was nice. We can hit a little bit. We hit baseballs right at guys tonight really hard. A foot this way or a foot that way and its probably a little bit different than 2-0 but well take it. Kreighauser and Weinberg arm-dueled one another all night. While Weinberg got his outs with the ball in play finishing with just one strikeout Kreighauser struck out eight and worked his way out of some trouble that included three walks, two hits and two Columbia errors. Gainesville (2-1, 0-1) left five runners in scoring position, going 0-for-4 in those opportunities. I cant say enough about the job Micah did, Thomas said. Hes just in a groove, hes in a rhythm, he wants to be the guy, and in his first district game he had to line up against those guys and play, and Ill tell you what, he was spot on. We had good defense, timely hitting as we like to call it, and it was just a fun night to be here. Kreighauser caught a break in the third inning when Seth Cox reached on an error and Zeb Marquis followed with a hard, deep ball to left field. It looked as if the ball would ricocheted off the wall and allow Cox to score, but instead, the ball bounced over it for a groundrule double that forced Cox to stay at third base. Next batter up, Kreighauser got Chase DeMichele to fly out to left field to end the threat. I actually thought it went over at first and then I saw it was a ground-rule double, Kreighauser said. I actually thought the runner on third was supposed to score but I was really relieved he didnt score. Really relieved. Kreighauser was also relieved to see Blair deliver the games only runs. Although he didnt pitch the seventh due to pitch count, he was confident Gilliam would shut the door with the lead. Them putting a two-spot up when I came out, I felt comfortable for Cal going out and shutting them out so Im happy with a win, Kreighauser said. Columbia travels to Gainesville tonight for another meeting at 7 p.m. Daveion Love will start on the mound for the Tigers, with Joseph Strong likely getting the ball for the Hurricanes. thing is just to stay focused and do what you can control. Shelnut wasnt the only pitcher who threw heat Thursday night. Santa Fes Dustin Beckelheimer, who finished with seven strikeouts, kept the contest scoreless until the third when Shelnut drove in teammate Ethan Perkins. Fort White added another run in the same frame on a fielding error which allowed Shelnut across home plate. Santa Fe earned its only run of the night during the fourth as Aidan DAgostino scored on a Fort White fielding error. While the errant throw cut their lead in half, the Indians were rarely threatened again thanks to strong pitching and defense. We played great defense, Julius said. The wind was howling pretty good out there. That was a concern. We had one pop up to the infield, that was way up there, and we did a good job staying under it. We didnt get the punch-out, we got the out. Fort White continues its fourgame homestand Tuesday night against P.K. Yonge.CHRISTINA FEAGIN/Special to the ReporterFort White left fielder Brant Parker takes a swing during the District 5-5A matchup against Santa Fe.
