Columbia County Fire Rescue is nearing the end of what Fire Chief Jeff Crawford said was a long process to equip new fire engines with Advanced Life Support-certified personnel and equipment. The first engine was commissioned late February and will be stationed in Fort White. He said the new ALS capable trucks were a first for the county. Already, Crawford said it and the dual-certified paramedic firefighters have come to the rescue of several victims in the throes of potentially deadly circumstances like cardiac arrest and respiratory failure. Crawford emphasized one of the most significant aspects of the ALS-equipped fire trucks. He said trained firefighters can now begin procedures typically only provided by a paramedic, greatly reducing the time it takes to get the patient to the hospital.

In response to the deadly school shooting in Parkland last month, the Florida Senate narrowly passed a bill Monday that would create new restrictions on rifle sales and allow some teachers to carry guns in schools. Carswell said he has reservations about introducing firearms into schools but if it is to be done, it shouldnt be educators that are carrying. Im not a big fan of putting another burden on our teachers, he said. If anyone is to carry firearms, it should be deans, administrative workers, custodians and other staff, Carswell said. I just know that teachers are asked a lot of, he said. Theyre part of the Carswell Coaches, others could be called upon, though.

The Senate voted 33-2 to give final approval to a measure intended to eventually keep Florida on Daylight Saving Time throughout the year. The next stop is the desk of Gov. Rick Scott, whose office said he will review the proposal after formally receiving it. If Scott signs the bill, Congress would ultimately be responsible for approving the proposed change.

The Senate amended its bill to limit which teachers could volunteer to go through law enforcement training and carry guns in schools. Any teacher who works only in a classroom would not be eligible for the program, but teachers who perform other duties, such as those who serve as a coach and other school employees, could still participate. Other exceptions would be made for teachers who are current or former law enforce ment officers, members of the military or who teach in a Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps program. Details about which school employ ees are armed should be kept secret, Carswell said. The public cant know who they ar e, he said. The Columbia County Sheriffs Office would need to develop a stringent selec tion and training process, Carswell said. W e just got to make sure we train everybody well, he said. It cant be done fast. Carswell hasnt yet spoken to teachers about the topic. School officials are taking other precautions, he said, such as hiring two fulltime security guards for Columbia High School and Fort White High School. And we will continue to make sure our schools are safe, Carswell said. The Senate bill passed by a 20-18 vote came after three hours of often emotional debate. Support and opposition crossed party lines. Republicans and Democrats alike said there were parts of the bill they didnt like. Democrats didnt like the idea of let ting teachers carry guns, even if the bill was amended to water down that pr opos al. And many pro-gun Republicans didnt like the idea of raising the minimum age to buy rifles from 18 to 21 or of creating a waiting period on sales of the weapons. In addition to the gun restrictions and arming some school personnel, it would create new mental health programs for schools, improve communication between schools, law enforcement and state agencies, create a task force to look at mistakes made during mass shootings nationally and then make recommenda tions on how to continue to improve the law and establish an anonymous tip line where students and others can report threats to schools. The bill is now before the House, which on Tuesday struck down a measure that would strip provisions allowing some school personnel to be ar med. The Associated Press contributed to this story.to get there, well already be able to start all of the medical procedures that are needed, life-saving medical procedures, said Crawford. He said the second of the two engines is slated to be housed at Station 42 in Suwannee Valley. The placement of the trucks was deliberate in order to reach the bulk of the rural portions of the county, in what Crawford said were the southern most and northernmost stations. Theyr e needed there in those two areas the most, Crawford said. With scant ambulance service north of Lake City and one in heavy use to the south, Crawford said the trucks would fill the vacuum of ALS services to the countys rural areas. It helps get ALS on scene quicker and it shortens the scene times for the med ics and all because they have less procedures to do when they get there, Crawford said. The training and equipment cover a broad spectrum of life-threatening conditions from major cardiac and respiratory issues to diabetic emer gencies. The fir e chief said there is only one thing they cant do that paramedics can. We just wont be able to tote you to the hospital, he said. The process to obtain the training for the per sonnel and the equipment star ted last year when Crawford said CCFR approached the County Commission to get approval for the project. Since then he said his staff have been intensively training to receive ALS cer tification by riding along with on-call para medics and working in the emer gency room of Lake City Medical Center. Weve put a lot into this already. A lot of peo ple wont realize that all the training thats been going on for the last few months, Crawford said. His explanation for undertaking the project was direct. We want to have the best, Crawford said. We want good competent people who know what theyre doing.

Police, firefighter PTSD benefits waiting for Scotts OKBy CHRISTINE SEXTONThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Firefighters, police officers and EMTs who cannot work due to job-related post-traumatic stress disorder could qualify for expanded ben efits under a bill heading to Gov. Rick Scott. The House unanimously approved the measure (SB 376) Monday, two days after the Senate passed it. Scott is expected to sign the bill, spearheaded by Sen. Lauren Book, D-Plantation, and Rep. Matt Willhite, D-Wellington. Matt Puckett, executive director of the Florida Police Benevolent Association, said the changes in the bill can go a long way toward helping first responders and pre dicted that it would even save lives. In Florida, injured workers are prevented from receiving workers compensation insurance benefits either medical benefits or lost wages for mental or nervous injuries not accompanied by phys ical injuries. The law was changed in 2007, though, to allow first r espond ers to obtain medical benefits for post-traumatic stress disorder without having accompanying physical injuries. However, they still are precluded from obtain ing lost wages for post-traumatic str ess disorder. The bill would change that if police officers, firefighters, emer gency-medical technicians and paramedics meet certain criteria. First responders who have wit nessed the death of a minor or witnessed a death that involved grievous bodily harm of a nature that shocks the conscience could file workers compensation claims for lost wages. The first respond ers would be required to show by clear and convincing evidence that the events were the source of the PTSD. The bill also would require cit ies, counties and other entities that employ first responders to pro vide educational training related to mental health awareness, prevention, mitigation and treatment. PTSD is a psychiatric disor der that can occur in people who have experienced or witnessed traumat ic events. Symptoms generally begin within the first 3 months after the trauma, although ther e may be delays of months or even years before the criteria for the diagnosis are met, according to a staff analysis of the bill. Before the House voted to pass the bill Monday, Rep. Erin Grall shared a suicide letter written by an Indian River County fire-rescue chief and posted on Facebook. Twenty-seven years of deaths and babies dying in your hands is a memory that you will never get rid of. It haunted me daily until now. My love to my crews be safe take care. I love you all, Grall read through tears. noting that the chief was her husbands cousin and brother-like figure. Until something like this hap pens so close, you dont realize the deficiencies in the system, Grall said, discussing how first r esponders can be impaired by the work they do. Puckett, said the bill takes a giant step in helping first responders address PTSD associ ated with their jobs. Puckett hopes the training and education will make family mem bers and co-workers more aware about the warning signs of PTSD and can encourage treatment to prevent the disorder from rising to the level that it prevents first responders from being able to work. Are we identifying folks with this? Are family members, co-work ers able to identify that this person is exhibitingthese PTSD signs, and are we setting it up to where people are actually willing to admit it? Puckett said. Maybe with this legislation people will start seeking treatment sooner. A 2015 survey of 4,000 first responders found that 6.6 percent had attempted suicide, which is more than 10 times the rate in the general population. Florida Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis, who support ed the bill through the process, issued a statement saying he was pr oud that Florida changed the law. First responders show up for us every day, without hesitation or questioning our politics, and today Florida showed up for them, said Patronis, whose job includes serv ing as state fire marshal. Patr onis also took a shot at the Florida League of Cities in the statement, saying to those who refused to support this measure from the beginning: we got this done without you.
On the agenda for Mondays meeting of the Lake Shore Hospital Authority is a cryptic item on possible action concerning expansion of the emergency room at Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center. Were not quite sure what it means and no one connected with LSHA will talk. It certainly sounds odd, considering the board already voted to fund the ER expansion in October. And the vote last fall was even odder in itself, as the boards written contract with HMA/Shands calls for that company, as operator of the facility, to foot the bill for such outlays. It may be the case that a rumor weve been chasing for a while now is true. Weve been hearing whispers of late about a possible revote on funding of the new ER. The revote would be appropriate, its said, because the board member who made the Oct. 9 motion, Dr. Waseem Khan, shouldnt have been there to begin with. The claim is that Khan who has claimed homestead exemption on a residence in Alachua County since at least 2015 didnt live in Columbia County, as required by LSHAs charter. (He resigned, reportedly under pressure from the governors office, several weeks later.) If Khan hadnt been on the board that night, the argument goes, the motion wouldnt have been made though had it been, the measure still would have passed. The revote may or may not be a legal necessity, but it would surely be of interest to Columbia County taxpayers. Especially should it go the other way this time around. As noted, HMA/Shands is contractually obligated to pay for upkeep, maintenance and improvements to the hospital. Why the board (with the exception of Lory Chancy) voted to hand over $7.2 million in taxpayer funds to the Naples-based conglomerate for a new ER is anybodys guess. Its as much of a mystery as why they rounded up their donation to an even $10 million with other facility upgrades for which HMA/Shands was equally responsible. As nice as a new ER would be, HMA/Shands agreed to foot the bill for such projects when they signed the lease. Were the shoe on the other foot, does anybody think they wouldnt enforce the contract as written? Beyond that, LSHA cant afford this charitable impulse even on paper. While the board has about $12 million in reserves, roughly $5 million of that must be held back for emergencies under state law. Of course, they could always raise taxes to make up the difference. On a side note, Item 2 on Mondays agenda calls for possible action on LSHA alternatives to pay for improvements to the hospital. Its not clear just what that means, and again, nobody at LSHA is talking. Everyone on the LSHA board was appointed by Gov. Rick Scott and professes to be a fiscal conservative. They mostly havent acted the part, at least not lately. Maybe well see their true colors come Monday.

OUR OPINIONCmon, Governor, let the sunshine inNo, were not chiding Mr. Scott for being too secretive with public records, or for some alleged violation of state public meetings law. This ones a little easier. All were asking is that the governor sign a bill, soon to come before him, that would establish Daylight Saving Time all year long in Florida. Its a natural for the Sunshine State, and would boost tourism dollars to boot. Weve yet to hear a good argument against it. The measure, approved by the state Senate and House, still has some hurdles to clear. Even if it makes it through Tallahassee, Congress will have the last word on this one. But for now, everything rides on Mr. Scott. Cmon, Governor. Let the sunshine in all year long.

WE HAVE TREATED OVER 100 PATIENTS! WHY GO OUT OF TOWN FOR INFUSIONS?Four solutions for multiple sclerosis, painThe pain associated with autoimmune diseases is very difficult to treat. Nerve pain is one of the most difficult, tragic types of pain a person can experience, and its common in multiple sclerosis, or MS for short. MS is still poorly understood, even though ther e are treatments available. Its becoming clear that full body (systemic) inflammation is at the root of autoimmune disorders, including MS. The body is on fire. Contributory factors might include a food allergen, environmental toxin, The Pill or pathogen. Regardless of how, the pathology is such that theres a loss of regulatory T cells and a breakdown of your intestinal barrier leading to more permeability and the leakage of undigested food proteins from casein and gluten. Theres a breakdown in the barriers that surround your brain and spinal cord. Histamine goes up which adds to pain and inflammation. I have a ver y comprehensive version of this article (over 4,000 words) and Im happy to give it to you if you sign up for my free newsletter at www.suzycohen.com. You can sign up at suzycohen. com and the complete article will be sent to your email. In the meantime, here are four natural ways to put the MS fire out: 1. Cinnamon Its top of the list because animal studies show how well it reduces nasty proinflammatory compounds like IL-17, which is elevated in folks with MS. We also know the painful symptoms of MS occur, in part, from demyelination, which causes a failure in the conduction of electrical impulses. This is akin to an electrical cord that gets plugged into the outlet, but the cord is missing the outer wrapping so you can see the wires inside. It hurts when plugged in! Cinnamon helps with pain, and surprisingly it might reduce levels body ammonia too. 2. Balance and eye movement exercises People with MS who do balance and eye movement exercises might feel more steady on their feet. Participants in a study were given computerbased eye movement and balance tests, as well as at-home balance and visual stability, was improved. 3. The Mediterranean Diet Just take me to Greece! The Mediterranean Diet is famous for heart health, as well as a reduced incidence of cancer, Parkinsons and Alzheimers disease. A diet like this provides nutrients and healthy fats, which support intestinal health while creating more of that protective myelin. The Mediterranean Diet was studied on MS sufferers and the results were very positive. 4. Vitamin D Vitamin D is useful in modulating and balancing the immune system. Patients with higher vitamin D in the first year of diagnosis had a slower rate of progression. They faired out better long term. In other words, the better the D status, the slower or milder the symptoms for that person. By the end of the five year study, the patients with vitamin D levels above 50 had fewer new active brain lesions. Pretty awesome considering sunshine is free!

Suzy Coheninfo@dearpharmacist.com www.SuzyCohen.com Knee replacement surgery may weaken the brainBy JILL PEASESpecial to the ReporterA new University of Florida study finds that 23 percent of adults age 60 and older who underwent a total knee replacement experienced a decline in activity in at least one region of the brain responsible for specific cognitive functions. Fifteen percent of patients declined across all brain networks the team evaluated. In essence, normally synchronized parts of the brain appeared more out of sync after surgery, said Dr. Jared Tanner, the studys co-lead author and a research assistant professor in the department of clinical and health psychology in the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions, part of UF Health. Patients who were cognitively weaker before surgery with worse working memory, slowed mental processing and evidence of brain atrophy as seen in imaging scans demonstrated the biggest network declines after surgery. Researchers say they do not yet know if or how patients perceive these network declines. They may contribute to brain fuzziness some patients experience right after surgery. The study, which was published online ahead of print in the Journal of Alzheimers Disease, was conducted to help scientists understand the causes of postsurgical cognitive impairment, which causes memory and thinking problems in about 15 to 30 percent of older adult patients, Tanner said. In most cases, these thinking and memory problems will resolve within six months to a year after surgery. Our study builds on 50 years of research into how the aging brain responds to anesthesia and surgery, Tanner said. We know older age and cognitive impairment before surgery are risk factors, but the specific causes are not known. For the UF study, the team conducted cognitive and brain imaging tests before and after surgery on 48 patients ages 60 and older undergoing a knee replacement. Results were compared with agematched adults who have knee osteoarthritis, but did not have surgery. The researchers used resting state functional MRI to look at patterns of blood flow in the brain while patients were lying still. Imaging data helped researchers understand how blood flow changes affected connections across brain networks that are responsible for functions such as memories of oneself and others, determining what outside stimuli deserve further attention, and working memory. Participants who did not have surgery did not demonstrate any changes across the two brain scans, but 23 percent of participants who had knee replacement surgery showed large declines in connectivity in at least one brain network when tested 48 hours after surgery. It was surprising to observe such significant effects of orthopedic surgery on the human brain, said Dr. Haiqing Huang, the studys other lead author, a data manager at the University of Pittsburghs Brain Aging & Cognitive Health Lab and a gradu ate of the biomedical engineering program at the UF Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering. The investigators say more research is needed to learn if the brain network changes persist. Our goals include investigating if patients who have this brain change after surgery continue to show this change later in their recovery, say at three months or one year after the surgery, said Dr. Catherine Price, the studys senior author and a UF associate professor of clinical and health psychology and anesthesiology. People with concerns about their attention or memory should discuss them with their surgical team, Tanner said. At UF Health, neuropsychologists and anesthesiologists have established what is believed to be the first clinical service to identify older adults who may be at risk of developing cognitive problems after surgery so that health care providers can intervene to lessen the impact. We strongly believe clinicians need to consider preoperative memory and attention abilities in their patients, said Price, also the co-director of the Perioperative Cognitive and Anesthesia Network, or PeCAN, service. Across the nation, however, cognition is not routinely assessed prior to surgery. There are also actions patients can take on their own, based on previous studies of healthy aging.STOCK PHOTOA new University of Florida study has found a link between knee replacement surgery and a decline in brain network activity in adults age 60 and older.

Nobody said it was going to be easy. Five games into the season, the Indians are still adjusting after making the leap up from Class 1A to 5A moving from one tough district to another. Fort White, though, has all the talent it needs to bring back its first league title since 2014. But the tribe must clean up the mistakes. Sloppy play wont take you far in District 5. This was evident in Tuesday nights 6-4 home loss to league leader P.K. Yonge. Errant throws, passed balls the Indians had their fair share of blunders. It was uncharacteristic for a defense that has performed well through the first four games. It hadnt been an issue so far this season, it just all came out in one night, Fort White skipper Rick Julius Lake City Reporter SPORTS Wednesday, March 7, 2018 www.lakecityreporter.com Section B Story ideas?

The Blue Wave scored three runs in the second inning on two errors, two passed balls and a wild pitch and scored another on a passed ball in the sixth, eventually holding on late for a 6-4 road win over the Indians in District 5-5A action thanks to two RBI from Austin Sutton. Fort White made a last ditch effort in the seventh, scoring two runs and sending the tying run to the plate. But with Tyler Shelnut standing on third base, Cody Morgan popped up to P.K. Yonge shortstop Austin Sutton to end the game. We didnt play very good as a team in all aspects of the game pitching, defense and hitting. Ive got to do a better job, Fort White coach Rick Julius said.

Eric JacksonJaguars decline to tag wide receiver RobinsonBy MARK LONGAssociated PressJACKSONVILLE If Allen Robinson remains in Jacksonville, it wont be as one of the highest-paid receivers in the league. The Jaguars declined to use the franchise or transition tag on Robinson, stirring questions about his future. NFL teams had until Tuesday afternoon to tag pending free agents, but Jacksonville executives told Robinson long before the deadline he would not be tagged. Had the Jags tagged Robinson, he could have signed a one-year, $15.982 million contract for 2018. Not doing so indicates how top executive Tom Coughlin and general manager Dave Caldwell feel about Robinson; they dont believe he is worth that much money six months after reconstructive knee surgery. Pittsburghs Antonio Brown ($16.775M) is scheduled to make the most of any receiver in 2018. Jacksonville and Robinson still have a week to reach a contract agreement; the team has exclusive negotiating rights with him until March 12. If no deal is reached by then, Robinson would become an unrestricted free agent on March 14. I dont really know what is going to happen, Robinson recently said. I know there are a lot of different scenarios. Right now, my main focus is to kind of let my agent narrow it down and for me to get back at 100 percent. Thats the main focus right now for me. I know Ill be back at 100 percent. I know all that is going to play out. I know the player that I am. I know that the plays that I made. I know the plays Im going to continue to make. Robinson had the best training camp of his career in 2017 and looked like he would be an integral part of the offense. But the 2015 Pro Bowl selection tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee on Jacksonvilles third play of last season and had surgery the following week. Robinson is how running again and closing in on a full recovery. He is right on schedule, coach Doug Marrone said last week at Future now in doubt for the teams wideout.JAGUARS continued on 5BJOHN SLEEZER/Kansas City StarJacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson catches a first down pass in the first quarter against the Kansas City Chiefs on Nov. 6, 2016 at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo.

Lee 4, Columbia 3SOFTBALLColumbia 5, Middleburg 1SOFTBALLKeystone Heights 18, Fort White ,3 more than one out in the second. Anthony Whelan reached second base on two errors to lead off the frame and Barber then walked Travin Freeman. Isaiah Malone followed with an RBI single and P.K. Yonge (7-0, 2-0) tied the game on Marco Rennias sacrifice fly before more mistakes cost Fort White (3-2, 1-1). Malone reached second on a wild pitch and catcher Jacob Sosa mishandled a third strike that allowed Casey ODell to reach first to put runners on the corner, ending Barbers night. With only one out instead of two, Austin Sutton sent a pitch from reliever Caleb May deep into the outfield to bring Malone home and put the Blue Wave up 3-2. Barbers final line read three runs two earned on two hits and a walk. He admitted the errors threw him off his game The errors and not making plays just set me off I guess, Barber said. My curveball wasnt working like it should. I couldnt throw it for a strike. It killed me. P.K. Yonge tacked on another run in the fifth when Devante Mitchum scored on Cory Troianos RBI fielders choice. Two more runs came across in the sixth on an RBI double by Sutton before ODell who only reached base because of catchers interference scored on a passed ball. May pitched the final 5 2/3 innings for the Indians, surrendering four runs three earned on four hits, a walk and a hit batter. He struck out five. Meanwhile, Fort Whites offense couldnt muster anything after the first inning against Whelan, who started on the mound for P.K. Yonge. Whelan went five innings and gave up four hits with two walks and three strikeouts. We left two runs on the board in the first inning that couldve changed the tempo of the game, Julius said. When you only have five hits the entire game and [a bunch of] errors, youre not going to win many ball games. We didnt pitch well, we didnt play defense well and we didnt swing well. They did a better job than us tonight, bottom line. It seemed like we were pressing a little bit, trying to do too much. Weve just got to do a better job. Ethan Brunson closed things out for the Blue Wave in the final two innings but not without some drama. After a perfect sixth, he walked Tanner Trice and gave up a one-out single to pinch-hitter Tucker Williamson. Trice scored on Shelnuts RBI double and Williamson came in on Trey Houks RBI groundout. But that was it for the Indians, who saw their comeback hopes end on Morgans pop out. If we didnt make those errors tonight, we probably win the ball game, Julius said. WASHEDContinued From 1B told me after the game. Five hits at the plate isnt going to win you many games, either. But the bats will come. They always do. The defensive performances, though, must improve if the Indians want to make a run at the league crown. Theres no cupcakes in this seven-team district. Santa Fe, Newberry, Bradford, Keystone Heights and P.K. Yonge are all competitive clubs. Fort White doesnt get a break either as the Indians are set to host a scrappy Palatka team on Thursday. Theres not a weak link in the district, Julius said. If you dont come to play every night, youre going to get beat. Despite the mental breakdowns in their first district loss, the Indians have plenty to build on entering the bulk of their rigorous schedule. What stands out at the top of that list is their depth, specifically in the bullpen. They didnt waste anytime inserting another pitcher (Caleb May) in relief Thursday. And they dont need to with the amount of arms in the dugout this season. With over dozen players who can pitch, expect Fort White to keep giving more teams fits in the batters box. If they can continue to groom those guys (and clean up the errors), the tribe could be a force to be reckoned with come early May. Julius says he hasnt pinned down the starting rotation just yet. But with their healthy mix of lefties and righties, you cant go wrong. The pitching and defense must connect even when the bats arent. I bet the Blue Wave (P.K. Yonge) sees a far more polished squad when the two teams collide again on April 6. The Indians have five more league contests before then, including road matches at Palatka, Bradford and Newberry. They didnt ask to be called up to Class 5A, but theyre making the most of the hand they were dealt. Nobody said it was going to be easy.

LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS WEDNESDAY, MARCH 7, 2018 3B DEAR ABBY: Years ago, my husband and I hosted a St. Patricks Day party in our apartment for friends. There was a lot of drinking going on. I had to be at work early the next morning, so I went to bed while the party went on. I awoke a short while later to one of the men attempting to rape me. He stopped and attempted an apology by saying, But you ar e just so pretty. My husband and I graduated from high school with this person, and he is/was par t of the same circle of friends. I have not told many people, but the few who do know have maintained a friendship with him, including my husband. Because of the #MeToo campaign, all the emotions have come to a head for me now. I think about this assault daily. The worst thing for me is that even though he knows about it, my husband has chosen to remain friends with him for 35 years. How can I get past this? CANT FORGET IN VIRGINIA DEAR CANT FORGET: I can only imagine how traumatic the assault was, and for that you have my sympathy. The friends you confided in may feel that because your attacker was drunk, what he did was somehow excusable. That your husband would be so forgiving is, frankly shocking. It may take the help of a licensed mental health professional to put this behind you, if thats possible. Include your husband in some of the sessions. DEAR ABBY : Im a 55-year-old gay man with a problem. My 22-year-old son doesnt know Im gay. It was after my divorce that I started seeing men again. I married my life partner of 13 years last year. My husband thinks I should sit my son down and tell him. I want to tell my son and be honest with him about my relationship with my husband, but my son is very religious and Im afraid this will drive a wedge between us. Plus, Im afraid of what ideas my ex would fill his head with about me. Please advise. CONFUSED IN THE SOUTH DEAR CONFUSED: You say your son is 22 and you have been with your now-husband for 13 years. Havent you had regular visitation with your son all this time? Doesnt he like your husband? If the answers to those questions are yes, then what makes you think he isnt already aware of your sexual orientation? On the other hand, if the answers to my questions are no, then I doubt that telling your son whats what will drive him any further away. DEAR ABBY : What would you say about a man who still keeps a photo of himself with his late wife as his computer background picture two years after he remarried? SECOND-FIDDLE SECOND WIFE DEAR WIFE: Id say he may be too lazy or computer-inept to update it. If it wer e me, Id volunteer to help him change it.

He is there every day; I see him quite a bit. I know that he has worked hard. We have all seen his work on the field and how hard he works on the field. I think what you cant see is that he is working twice as hard in the recovery process and the rehabilitation. Still, Robinson has missed 21 games in four seasons and wasnt a speedster to begin with. So how effective will he be coming off a major knee injury? There are a lot of things we like about him, but we just have to make sure it is the right thing for the team, Caldwell said at the combine. A second-round draft pick from Penn State, Robinson has 202 catches for 2,848 yards and 22 touchdowns in 43 games. He had 80 receptions for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2015, establishing himself as one of the best receivers in franchise history. But he caught 73 passes for 883 yards and six scores in 2016, causing some to wonder if his Pro Bowl season was a fluke. If the Jaguars do move on from Robinson, they would have a huge hole to fill at the position. Marqise Lee also is a pending free agent, and the team likely will either part ways with receiver Allen Hurns or re-negotiate his contract that includes a base salary of $7 million in 2018. Nothing has been decided on that yet, Caldwell said. We will look at that. Robinson has said repeatedly he wants to stay in Jacksonville, especially since he played a cheerleading role during the teams breakthrough year and believes the Jags are poised to make another Super Bowl run in the near future. This is where Ive been the last four years and this is something that weve all really put in and tried to build, he said. It wasnt something that we just came into and it happened. We went from 3-13, to 5-11, 3-13 to now. Its just one of those things that, again, I stepped in here Day 1. It was a lot different than it is now. JAGUARS Continued From 1B
Gators fall 9-7 at UCF ORLANDO Floridas fivegame win streak came to an end on Tuesday night, falling 9-7 at UCF in Orlando. UCF took advantage of an uncharacteristic night on the mound from the Gators pitching staff. UF gave up 10 walks five of which scored and 15 hits, both season highs. Wil Dalton took the first pitch of the game and sent if over the left field wall for an early 1-0 lead. The Knights scored six runs on five hits in the third to take a 6-3 lead. Seven straight batters reached base with two outs as UCF knocked starter Jack Leftwich from the game. In the fourth, a pair of walks by reliever Andrew Baker came back to bite him as a two-out single from Ryan Osik added two more runs to the Knights lead. Florida battled back with three runs in the sixth. Schwarz led off with a double to left center and Jonathan India followed with a walk. Keenan Bell stepped in and sent the first pitch he saw over the wall in right field for his third home run of the season to cut the deficit to two. UCF picked up an insurance run in the bottom of the sixth with yet another two-out RBI single. All nine of the Knights runs in the game came with two outs.Raleigh leads FSU to sweep of KansasTALLAHASSEE Junior catcher Cal Raleigh tied a career high with three hits, including his first home run of the season, and had three RBI in No. 4 FSUs 12-7 win over Kansas Tuesday evening at Dick Howser Stadium. In the two-game sweep of the Jayhawks, Raleigh hit 6-for-8 with five runs batted in and four runs scored. Clayton Kwiatkowski (1-0) started his first career game, pitching 3.1 innings, allowing two solo home runs and strik ing out a career-best six. The game capped both teams fifth game in five days after the series was pushed up one day due to inclement weather in the Tallahassee area.6B WEDNESD AY, MARCH 7, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER TM Save the Date FOR THE GREAT FOOD GREAT MUSIC GREAT FOOD GREAT MUSIC GREAT FOOD GREAT MUSIC DOORS OPEN AT 6PM MUSIC STARTS AT 8PM MARCH 9, 2018 FRIDAY SATURDAY 386-364-16833076 95th Drive, Live Oak, FL 32060www.MusicLivesHere.com SOLO DUETS BANDS r MARCH 10, 2018IN THE MUSIC HALL r fntbb bbb tnnb tn tbb b tnnb bbttb btbb bbb tnnb bn bbtnn ROUNDUPGeorgias Maten named AP SEC player of the yearKNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Georgia forward Yante Maten is the Associated Press Southeastern Conference mens basketball player of the year. Maten and Tennessee for ward Grant Williams were unanimous first-team picks on the all-SEC team announced Tuesday. Tennessees Rick Barnes was named coach of the year and Alabama freshman guard Collin Sexton was selected as newcomer of the year by the 15-person media panel. Auburns Bryce Brown and Arkansas Daryl Macon joined Maten, Williams and Sexton as first-team all-SEC selections. The second team includes Auburn teammates Jared Harper and Mustapha Heron, Arkansas Jaylen Barford, Floridas Chris Chiozza and Missouris Kassius Robertson. Maten leads the SEC in scor ing (19.4) and ranks second in the league in rebounding (8.8). Those statistics enabled him to earn player of the year honors even though Georgia (16-14, 7-11) tied for 11th place in the league standings. This marks the first time an AP SEC player of the year has come from a team that ended the regular season below .500 in conference play since 1971, when Mississippis Johnny Neumann won the award while the Rebels went 6-12 in league competition.Dukes Bagley III leads AP all-ACC TeamRALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Duke freshman forward Marvin Bagley III is The Associated Press player and newcomer of the year in the Atlantic Coast Conference, and Virginias Tony Bennett is its coach of the year. Bagley the only unanimous selection to the AP all-ACC team also announced Tuesday earned 14 votes for the top overall individual honor and all 15 votes for the award for newcomers following a vote of 15 journalists who cover the ACC throughout the leagues nine states. Bagley shares the ACCs scoring lead with Boston Colleges Jerome Robinson at 20.7 points per game and leads the conference with an average of 11.2. He was joined on the first team by Robinson along with two players from North Carolina forward Luke Maye and guard Joel Berry and Virginias Devon Hall. Maye, who averages 17.7 points and 10.1 rebounds, joins Bagley as the only players in the league averaging a double-double. Syracuse guard Tyus Battle, the leagues No. 3 scorer at 20 points per game, leads a second team that also includes Duke forward Wendell Carter Jr., Virginia guard Kyle Guy, Notre Dame guard Matt Farrell and Clemsons Marcquise Reed.
