Cuts deal with state board; will pay fine and accept reprimand.COUNTY COMMISSIONBy CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comTaxpayer money went to a fencing company while its bank accounts were in the hands of County Commissioner Rusty DePratter, who has agreed to pay a $1,000 fine and subject himself to a public reprimand for ethics violations. The Florida Commission on Ethics found probable cause to support allegations against DePratter for using his position for personal gain and having a relationship with a company when it did business with the county, according to recently acquired documents. In 2013, the county paid $450 to North Florida Fence Company, which DePratter owned, according an investigative summary from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. The next year, that number jumped to $27,067. In 2015, when DePratter and other commissioners unanimously voted to award a contract to NFFP, the county paid $88,346 to the business. ETHICS continued on 2A DePratterFrom staff and wire reportsThe Florida House passed a school safety bill late Wednesday that includes new restrictions on rifle sales and a program to arm some teachers, sending the measure to the governor for his signature. The vote of 67-50 reflected a mix of Republicans and Democrats in support and opposition. The measure, a response to the shootings at a Parkland high school that left 17 dead, is supported by the victims families. Republican Rep. Elizabeth Porter of Lake City called the bill the first step toward securing our schools against persons that would harm our children and families.

Scripture of the Day"Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise." Psalms 98:4 (KJV) When you blame others, you give up your power for growth and change. Dr. Robert Anthony Thought for Today Winning Lottery Numbers Pick 3: (Wednesday midday) 8-2-5 Pick 4: (Wednesday midday) 2-7-1-0 Pick 5: (Wednesday midday) 2-6-4-2-4 QUICK HITS DePratter had sold the business by then, but retained access to its bank accounts, FDLE reported. In September 2016, DePratter received a letter from Third Circuit State Attorney Jeff Siegmeister informing him of a probe into his conduct while in office. Included was an investi gative summary from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement regarding whether DePratter violated ethics or breached the public trust. The Commission on Ethics executive director reviewed the referral and decided it was sufficient for further action. The six-member ethics board voted to investigate DePratter on Oct. 21, 2016. A January 2018 report lists the accusations against DePratter, which included violations of state law for using inside knowledge to buy land adjacent to Old Wire Road, the proposed site of a county paving project. The ethics board found no probable cause to support six of the eight allegations, but DePratter admitted to the facts behind the two for which he faces the fine and public r eprimand. Former Clerk of Court Finance Director Jared Blanton told investigators he informed DePratter in January 2014 there were concerns over the appear ance that Columbia County had conducted business with NFFC, while the com pany was still owned by Commissioner DePratter , according to a 2016 FLDE investigative report. Blanton brought his concerns to then-County Manager Dale Williams, but heard nothing about it until three months later, when DePratter visited his office to say he no longer owned NFFC. In an April 2014 email, DePratter told Blanton he still helped NFFC, but received no payments from the company. Pursuant to this email, Columbia County resumed business with NFFC, according to FDLEs investigative summary. Documents from the Clerk of Court show a significant increase of business between Columbia County and NFFC between 2013 and 2015, FDLE wrote. DePratter was the County Commission chairman when the board approved giving NFFC a contract for its fencing projects. During the meeting, DePratter disclosed that he used to own the company but was no longer affiliated with it, according to audio recordings. DePratter told investiga tors he had asked County Attor ney Joel Foreman how he should proceed given that he was the companys former owner. He said that Mr. Foreman advised him to vote because he sold the company and was no longer affiliated with it, accord ing to the Commission on Ethics preliminary investi gation. Recor ds from the Florida Department of State Division of Corporations show DePratter and his ex-wife incorporated NFFC in 1991. In 2013, DePratters ex-wife was removed as an officer of the company, making him president. In 2007, the vice presi dent, Richard Register, was r emoved and DePratter became the sole person listed on the companys annual reports until March 2014, when his name was replaced by James Durrance. That same month, a deposit of $99,093 from American Title Services of Lake City was made to DePratters bank account. Notation on the check indicates the transac tion was for NW W ashington Street. The Property Appraisers website indicates the prop erty was bought by James and Shannon Durrance from DePratter on March 20, 2014 for $125,000. Although the address for NFFC was listed as a post office box, a search for NW Washington Street in Lake City, FL revealed it was the compa nys physical address. DePratter continued to be listed as an authorized user of the NFFC bank accounts, which he claimed was an oversight, according to the ethics board. Dur rance wasnt added as an authorized user until Oct. 14, 2014. A Dec. 24, 2013 docu ment lists Durrance as NFFCs manager The Clerk of Court wrote 11 checks to NFFC totaling $90,476. In his capacity as the commission chairman, DePratter signed seven of the checks for a combined amount of $85,585. At that time, DePratter continued to be an autho rized user of NFFCs bank account. DePratter told investiga tors checks were signed electr onically and he never manually signed one as chairman. According to DePratters profile with the Division of Corporations, he was also the owner and agent of S&S Wholesale Fence. Bank records for that company show 13 of the 18 deposits made between January 2013 and October 2015 were from NFFC, totaling $25,238. DePratter maintained he sold the company because of the right person asking him to sell the business at the right time and that after the sale, he was no longer involved with the business and accepted no compensation, according to documents from the Commission on Ethics. DePratter told the ethics board that the accusations have affected the manner in which he conducts him self as a public official in a positive way, the ethics board wrote. DePratter declined com ment for this story.college education and training at a military service academy, a press release about the event stated. Our military service academies are some of the most rigorous and prestigious universities in the country. The bar is high and the competi tion is stiff to earn entry into our service academies. I welcome students fr om across the Second District to come out to one of our informational sessions to learn about how they can get a great education and serve their country, Dunn wrote in a statement to The Lake City Reporter. The exclusive admission and applications process to the acade mies requires that a student receive a nomination to the school from a member of Congress or even the vice president and will be discussed by officials from the academies and their respective military branches, Dunn said. A press release stated representa tives from the U.S. Military Academy (W est Point), the Air Force, Coast Guard, Merchant Marine and Naval academies will attend. The Columbia County event is one of three organized Saturday, with Leon and Bay, Dunns home county, following later that day. Dunn represents the Second Congressional District of Florida and served as a U.S. Army surgeon before moving to Bay County where he is a practicing urologist and surgeon.

The ethics board found no probable cause to support six of the eight allegations, but DePratter admitted to the facts behind the two for which he faces the fine and public reprimand. legal right to confidentiality to meet with County Attorney Joel Foreman. If approved, the resolution would go to the Columbia County Board of County Commissioners. Economic development officials are legally compelled to honor a companys request for secrecy, but the resolution would express the countys strong preference that the identity of applicants for incentives, as well as their plans and intentions, be publicly disclosed prior to deliberation by the Economic Development Advisory Board on any request by the applicant for economic development incentives. It is forcing them to make a decision about how important confidentiality is, said County Attorney Joel Foreman, who drafted the resolution at the request of board member and County Commission Chairman Tim Murphy. Board member Jeff Simmons worried the resolution would harm the countys reputation among potential economic development partners. You got to be careful that you dont shoot yourself in the foot unintentionally, Simmons said. Theyre looking for reasons to eliminate locations. Tax revenue job numbers are whats important in a project, Simmons said. It doesnt matter who it is, he said. Board member Terry Dicks said Simmons was hitting the nail on the head. We need to think about these things before we go playing with them, Dicks said. Murphy said Dicks and Simmons made good points, but there was more than enough time to tweak the resolution and address their concerns. This is nothing thats going to be rushed to the Board [of County Commissioners], he said. Success is us doing it right in the confidence of the community, Murphy added. EDABContinued From 1A The bill may not be perfect, she told the Lake City Reporter Wednesday night. No bill is. But we cannot afford to do nothing in the face of evil. As with all bills, as time marches on and more information comes to light about how we can best protect our schools from madmen, I am sure that future policymakers will add to or change it in order to make it the most effective law they can, while being mindful of our constitutional rights. Democratic Rep. Kristin Jacobs, whose district includes Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, said she did not like the idea of arming teachers, but she voted yes. The bill would raise the minimum age to buy rifles from 18 to 21 and create a waiting period on sales of the weapons. It would also create a so-called guard ian program that would l et school employees and many teachers carry hand guns if they go through law enfor cement training and if the school district decides to participate in the program. Other provisions would create new mental health programs for schools; estab lish an anonymous tip line wher e students and oth ers could report threats to schools, ban bump stocks and improve communica tion between schools, law enfor cement and state agen cies.The Associated Press contributed to this story.

Hospital agreement ends budget standoff for Florida LegislatureTALLAHASSEE Helping end a budget impasse, lawmakers have agreed to keep a current Medicaid payment formula for hospitals and to increase funding for nursing homes by $40 million, the Senates top health care budget writer confirmed Wednesday afternoon. The agreement allowed the chambers to close out a roughly $87 billion spending plan for the fiscal year that starts July 1. Senate Health and Human Services Appropriations Chairwoman Anitere Flores, R-Miami, confirmed the deal on hospital and nursing-home funding. Jan Gorrie, a lobbyist with the firm Ballard Partners who represents health care clients such as Tampa General Hospital, said the decision maintains access to care provided by our states safety net hospitals. Emmett Reed, executive director of the Florida Health Care Association, a major nursing-home group, issued a statement thanking legislative leaders for the additional money. The funding boost, which was a priority of Senate President Joe Negron, comes as the Medicaid payment system for nursing homes is poised to change this year. Reed said the additional money will go a long way to enhance quality and help care providers as they transition to the states new payment system this October.The News Service of Florida

I feel a sense of loss, sadness, anger and disgust, after the recent massacre at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. No child should experience the fear while attending school they could lose their life. Unfortunately, this may be the current reality of the times in which we live. There are no overnight solutions. Here are some suggestions. SecuritySchools in this nation, public or private, should be secure. This would necessitate a secure perimeter with limited, supervised access. Vehicle traffic on campus should have tag numbers photo documented. Metal detectors at a limited number of building entrances are needed with restrictions on types of packages entering the building, commercial deliveries included, subject to X-ray scanning, while maintaining a detailed electronic photo log of visitors. Manned security checkpoints should be in place during the entire school day along with law enforcement patrolling of the campuses. After-hours security is indicated to prevent placement of dangerous devices. All procedures should be integrated with a central video monitoring and recording system manned 24/7. A good beginning, but the cost would be astronomical! It would be a good taxpayer investment in our youth. Semi-automatic weapons Not trying to step on Second Amendment rights. Seriously ask yourself, does a common citizen need a rapid-fire weapon, with ammunition in multi-round magazines, capable of ripping a human body to shreds? You cannot hunt with the weapon as it would destroy your game. Restricting these weapons to the public and having them only available to our military and/or law enforcement should at least be discussed. There are currently restrictions in place as to kinds of weapons someone can possess. Consider citizens are currently restricted from possessing items such as hand grenades, portable missile launchers or even nuclear bombs! In the past, a common citizen could not own any restricted weapons used by our military. If our country is invaded, then we would trust and depend on our military for defense, their sworn duty. True, the early Revolutionary citizen militias were formed to free us from British domination. Different times, different situations. Debate will continue. We will likely never be able to completely make rapid fire weapons unavailable. There will always be a dealer and a purchaser. These weapons would be acquired in an underground/black market fashion; got the money, they have the weapon. Manufacturers of these weapons and ammunition could be restricted to only sell to government defense and law enforcement agencies, under signed fixed contracts, for public protection and to maintain a superior tactical ability to confront crime. Removing the unmodified AR-15 type weapons already legally owned by responsible gun owners would present a problem. For any weapon purchase, a five-day cooling off period and a full federal background check should be required. Minimum age of purchase 21; two-view photo and fingerprints required. Must prove US citizenship with valid ID. All sources of information should be available and checked off on a standardized, computerized government data base checklist showing completed reviews of, school records, medical records, military records, law enforcement agency records along with information from past and present employers. A consent granting access to these records can be signed at the time of application, completed by a licensed weapons dealer; no signed consent, no application submitted. Any felonies or major, unresolved mental health issues, no gun sale. Private sales unfortunately would be difficult to regulate. Privacy rights need to be weighed vs. public protection.Mental healthResources are sorely lacking to identify and treat mental health issues in this country. There are parents/caregivers with adolescent children displaying similar behavior the perpetrator of the Parkland shooting demonstrated during his adolescence. Some of these parents/caregivers are aware their child may be a ticking time bomb. Schools need adequate trained personnel with screening tools to identify and report problems early. But seeking treatment is severely limited through the schools and may not be covered by medical insurance. When it is, the service provider is sometimes terribly substandard, overwhelmed by patient volume, and believe for the most part that the only solution is to medicate. These children need continued, supervised, competent one to one or group therapy along with regulated, appropriate medications. This may need to be in a communal or institutionalized setting. Troubled children need an outlet, guided by qualified professionals, allowing them to vent in regular therapy sessions. Emergency crisis phone numbers should be provided for 24/7 access to a mental health provider. Solutions to modify the behavior should be discussed with the parents/caregivers. Better talking it out than taking inappropriate, dangerous actions. Cost of most inpatient services is prohibitive. It can be thousands of dollars a month! Media and entertainment The video game and entertainment industries have escalated, inflamed, glorified and reinforced inappropriate violent behavior. The level of violence displayed in products produced by these industries is out of control. Video games show humans being slaughtered, dismembered, tortured and degraded with no consequences. When the game is over, the child goes back and plays it again, some to the point of addiction. Though adult rated, children easily acquire the violent games. Many movies are released having ratings for violence for showing the same type of human carnage. A theater will restrict entry (unless parents accompany the child) but it can be rented, seen on cable/satellite or purchased without a problem. Parents/caregivers are ultimately responsible, but they cannot be with a child 24/7. Peer pressure to observe and mimic behavior seen in these forms of entertainment is overwhelming. Television programs geared toward reality TV, have also inflamed and reinforced some childrens ongoing inappropriate behavior. Children talking back to parents, parents being displayed either as ignorant or all tolerant of any type of behavior has become the norm. Respect for other people, authority figures, or individual religious beliefs is for the most part nonexistent. Work for positive change in our society. Communicate with your elected officials and your child!

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman GUEST COLUMN OUR OPINIONKeep EDAB transparency plan intactIt was disappointing to see so few members show up for Wednesday mornings meeting of the Economic Development Advisory Board, and even more disappointing to hear such lack of enthusiasm for a well-crafted plan to inject transparency into incentive deals with possible business suitors. The new measure would make clear the county disfavors secrecy and would prefer companies not invoke a state law allowing them to keep their identities under wraps until they have their full complement of taxpayer cash. Regardless, the board couldnt muster a quorum and had to adjourn without official action after a fair amount more grousing. The plan is to send the measure back to County Attorney Joel Foreman for some fine-tuning, we are told. Thats fine as long as it doesnt quietly get morphed into something its not. County Commission and EDAB Chairman Tim Murphy, who helped pioneer this measure, needs to stand his ground against the naysayers and keep the core of this important piece of legislation intact. Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY Making our schools safer Richard Poole lives in Lake City.On this date: In 1854, U.S. Commodore Matthew C. Perry made his second landing in Japan; within a month, he concluded a treaty with the Japanese.

Jones list also includes the likes of Louisville, Boston College, Purdue, Duke and others.From staff reportsGAINESVILLE Florida fell to UCF 4-2 on Wednesday night at McKethan Stadium in Gainesville. UCF struck first in the opening frame. Ray Alejo led off the game with a double and Rylan Thomas made it 2-0 with his fourth home run of the season. Both starting pitchers settled in and kept the offenses in check until the bottom of the fifth, when UCF starter Joe Sheridan lost control and walked four batters to allow the Gators to get on the board. Florida starter Jordan Butler was solid after allowing the home run in the first inning, giving up just one hit over the next four innings before being replaced by Tommy Mace. The Knights immediately got the run back in the sixth inning on Matthew Mikas solo home run to left field. UCF made it 4-1 in the seventh with a RBI single from pinch hitter Chandler Robertson. Blake Reeses RBI single in the eighth cut the deficit to two runs, but the Gators left the bases loaded as UCF closer Bryce Tucker escaped the inning. PREP BASEBALL Out of the storm and into the KnightFILE Columbia shortstop Dylan Blair strolls into third base against West Nassau on Feb. 22.By JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comTheyre a familiar foe, and one likely out for revenge. The Columbia Tigers know very well whats in store the next two nights against the Vanguard Knights, the team they swept during the regular season in 2017 and then beat again for the District 3-7A title. Its a two-game series with 6:30 p.m. starts thatll shape the standings for both teams in a district thats deadlocked through two games. Columbia split its two games against Gainesville last week while Vanguard went 1-1 against Middleburg. The Tigers (4-1, 1-1) won last years meetings by a combined score of 21-4, but head coach Brian Thomas doesnt want his players thinking itll be that easy again. Otherwise, the tables could turn tonight at Vanguard and Friday in Lake City. Theyre scrappy. They always are. Theyre a tough kid down there. Thats the school, and they for sure want a little bit of payback, Thomas said after Wednesdays practice. Im sure those things are being talked about, hey look, you can play with them, you owe them, get after them, and they will. Thats what we just got done talking about, they will absolutely get after you and dont let them go out there and break your heart. The Knights (3-3, 1-1) may have lost last years ace Kyler Adams, but that doesnt mean a return to the postseason is out of the question. Things didnt look good last Thursday when Middleburg took the first game 11-1 in six innings, but Vanguard bounced back one night later with a 4-3 in eight innings. It was a resilient victory for the Knights, who fell behind 2-0 early before coming back to take a 3-2 lead only to blow the save in the seventh. Theyre sneaky good. If you dont come with your A-game theyre going to beat you. CHS moves on from loss to GHS, faces VHS Knights for two-game series. COLLEGE BASKETBALL PREP SOFTBALLJEN CHASTEEN/Special to the ReporterColumbia pitcher Sofia Arata delivers a pitch win the Santa Fe Invitational this past week end. Arata filled in along with Whitney Lee for the injured CrisDeona Beasley, who returned Tuesday against Middleburg. Beasley is expected to start tonight against Gainesville.By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comBoth teams are relentless. Both teams hate to lose. But there will be only one winner when Columbia and Gainesville clash for the first time this season tonight. The Lady Tigers look to keep up their hot start to the year in a highly-anticipated District 3-7A tilt against the undefeated Lady Hurricanes. Both teams are trying to stake their claim as the districts best, set to collide for the first time since Columbias improbable regional semifinal comeback win at home last May. The reigning league champs hope to protect their house again tonight. GHS is always a great team to play, Columbia coach Trudy Andrews said. Our girls love the challenge. They love the friendly rivalry in it all. They know GHS is a great team. And thats what they thrive on they want to succeed against those kind of teams. Both softball teams look to remain unbeaten in GHS is always a great team to play, Trudy Andrews CHS head coachColumbia hosts Gainesville in a District 3-7A showdown. Seminoles get beat down by CardinalsBy MIKE FITZPATRICKAssociated PressNEW YORK David Padgett stalked the sideline, shouting instructions to his Louisville players and urging them on relentlessly as they built a 26-point lead in the second half. Knowing how badly they needed to win, the Cardinals certainly played that way. And it turned out, that huge cushion came in handy. Quentin Snider scored 19 points, Ray Spalding had 18 and Louisville knocked off Florida State 82-74 on Wednesday in an Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament game with major NCAA implications. Im sure this significantly helps our resume, said Padgett, the interim coach who took over when Rick Pitino was fired before the season. I know if were able to come out and get a win (Thursday) against the No. 1 team in the country that I would surely think theyre in. Deng Adel added 15 points and eight rebounds for the ninth-seeded Cardinals (20-12), who won for the first time in ACC postseason play and advanced to face top-ranked Virginia in the first quarterfinal Thursday. A week ago, Louisville had a four-point lead against the Cavaliers with 0.9 seconds left only to let a marquee victory slip away. This is our chance, Snider said. Trent Forrest and PJ Savoy each had 14 points off the bench to pace No. 8 seed Florida State (20-11), which trailed 64-38 with 11 1/2 minutes remaining. I think we came out a little bit lackadaisical, freshman Ike Obiagu said. A furious rally by the Seminoles whittled the margin to eight with 3:26 to play, but Louisville regrouped and hung on behind Snider. The senior point guard had six assists and five rebounds without committing a turnover in 35 minutes. We didnt panic, Padgett said. Our guys did a great job. Louisville builds 26-point lead, holds on for 82-74 win in ACC Tournament.FSU continued on 6B TIGERS continued on 2BTEAM LEA GUEO VERALL Gainesville 4-0 10-0 Columbia 2-0 9-2 Middleburg 1-3 1-6 Vanguard 0-4 1-6ANOTHER CHAPTERCHAPTER continued on 2B B1

PG-13 The Chi Wallets Cartoon PresidentHomeland Theyre absolutely going to beat you, Thomas said. Middleburg is a lot better and for them to have gotten trounced one night and come back and win a game in extra innings on a walk-off, that tells me theyve got short term memory. For high school kids, thats impressive. Thomas says Columbia has responded well this week in practice after falling to Gainesville 7-6 in a 12-inning marathon Friday night. Errors cost the Tigers big time in the loss, committing four that led to five unearned runs. That included a dropped pop up by third baseman Tate Worrell, which eventually allowed Gainesville to win it in the 12th. The Tigers spent of bulk of Mondays practice working on fly ball recognition, helped by windy conditions that forced players to recognize drift. We just had a really good week of defensive work, thata kind of where the emphasis has been, Thomas said. We talked about it last week after the last game that we were going to go to work on some things and we did. Hopefully, weve shored them up. Were still swinging it well, were still pitching well and were just getting the defense to where the defense needs to be a little bit. Not that its been awful, but some of the basic routine thing. Columbia had just beaten Gainesville 2-0 the night before the loss on a 2-RBI single by Dylan Blair in the sixth inning. The games showed just how tight District 3-7A can be, as did Vanguards extra-inning thriller with Middleburg. In the words of Thomas, thats our district. Welcome to our district. These last three days have been really, really, really upbeat. Im really, really pleased with the kids and where were at, he said. Sometimes those things are good for you because it truly does show, as clich as it sounds, the bounce of a ball. A bounce this way or a bounce that way for either side and an outcome can sometimes become different. The Knights certainly hope so in 2018. The Tigers? They just want more of the same with a twist of better defense. TIGERS Continued From 1Bleague play as they take the field in what could be a potential district championship matchup in April. Columbia (9-2, 2-0) enters the contest with only two losses, falling to tough teams in Santa Fe and Alonso, while Gainesville (10-0, 4-0) comes in unscathed through its first ten games. Gainesville is ranked fourth in the state in all classifications in the latest Miracle Sports state poll while Xcellent 25 (MaxPreps) pegged the team at seventh. We dont get into all of that stuff, Andrews said of accolades. We just leave it on the ball field and play our game. And just play ball and not worry about all the other stuff. The Lady Tigers strive to keep up the momentum especially after their impressive 5-1 win at Middleburg Tuesday night. CrisDeona Beasley, who missed last weeks tournament due to a shoulder injury, didnt miss a step. The sophomore ace and reliever Whitney Lee combined for a no-hitter in their second district win of the year. She controlled the mound, Andrews said of Beasley, who finished with three strikeouts in five innings pitched. She came in fresh and did a really good job. I was extremely proud of her. Beasley, who is slated to get the start tonight, could be in for pitchers duel against another promising pitcher in fellow sophomore Alyssa Humphrey. Both players have anchored their respective teams on the mound over the last couple seasons. We look at their team and kinda prepare for a lot of different scenarios, Andrews said. Were not sure whos going to show up on the mound, just like theyre probably not sure whos going to throw for us. We just prepare for whatever might be thrown at us. Columbia is ready for whatever Gainesville throws. Both teams are ready to add another chapter to the rivalrys storied history. Its always friendly [competition], Andrews added. It goes back and forth between the two teams, and you know, it makes it exciting. Its fun to watch these kind of games, and fun to be part of them. The girls are hungry. TIGHT RIVALRY: Columbia and Gainesville have kept the rivalry series tight over the years. The Lady Tigers lead the I-75 series 7-6 since winning the Class 6A state title in 2013. Gainesville won the Class 7A state title in 2016. STATE RANKED: Gainesville improved to No. 1 (Class 7A) this week in the Miracle Sports state softball poll. Columbia dropped out of the top-10 after falling to Santa Fe over the weekend. Santa Fe is now No. 10 in Class 5A in the same poll. LIVE BROADCAST: Thursday nights district matchup will be broadcasted live at nfhsnetwork.com. The NFHS Network School Broadcast Program, powered by PlayOn!

LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, MARCH 8, 2018 3B DEAR ABBY: I have been married for seven months, and my husband wants a second wife, something I do not agree with. He says he likes helping people and has decided he wants a former lover to be a part of our marriage. Unfortunately, she is more than willing to sleep with him. Now hes talking about helping her move even though he knows Im against him having anything to do with her. She says shes going to tell her daughter he is her boyfriend and not let her know he is married. She wants to be my friend, but I want nothing to do with her. I sold my house, so I have nowhere to go. He refuses to go to marriage counseling because he says I am the problem. I am just about ready to cut my losses and move on. What do you think? READY TO MOVE ON DEAR READY: You and your husband are already living on separate planets as far as your values are concerned. Unless you are willing to have an open marriage and another woman sharing your husband, I think its time to talk to a lawyer! DEAR ABBY: While flying across country with my toddler son, he started screaming hysterically as the plane began its descent. Nothing I could do would calm him. I tried giving him a bottle, a knuckle, a pacifier, even the corner of my shirt, but he continued to howl. All of a sudden, a hand holding a lollipop appeared in the space between our seats and with it came a soft voice that said, Its the change in air pressure. Try this. I took what turned out to be a sugar-free lollipop, and sure enough, the moment I unwrapped the generally frowned-upon treat, my son began sucking enthusiastically, calmed down and sat quietly until the plane came to a stop. Ever since then I travel with sugar-free lollipops in my purse in the event a child near me is undone by the change in cabin pressure during landing. Some parents are skeptical at first, but when I use the tone and the words once spoken to me, they usually accept the treat, calm their child and sigh in relief. I encourage parents to do the same. TIP FROM UP HIGH DEAR TIP: Perhaps airlines should stock an emergency supply of lollipops on their planes for parents in that situation. It would be easier than handing out earplugs and tranquilizers to all the other passengers on the flight. DEAR ABBY: My niece died last week from a fentanyl overdose. She was 43. My brother lives out of town, so I offered to retrieve my nieces belongings. I found a crack pipe and syringes. Should I tell my brother? KEEP IT TO MYSELF DEAR KEEP IT: Please accept my sympathy for the loss your family has suffered. I think you should tell your brother. He is already aware that his daughter had a serious drug problem. Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com Newlywed wife rejects idea of welcoming a second wife DILBERT BABY BLUES BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C. FRANK & ERNEST FOR BETTER OR WORSE ZITS HAGAR THE HORRIBLE SNUFFY SMITH GARFIELD CLASSIC PEANUTS DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES | THE LAST WORD BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): A financial move can be made and contracts can be negotiated and put in place. Good things will happen if you take the initiative and channel your energy into achieving your goals. Make the purchases necessary to upgrade your lifestyle. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Emotional deception is apparent. If you think someone isnt being honest with you, ask direct questions. Dont feel like you have to pay for someone elses mistakes or make a contribution to something you dont fully believe in. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Personal gains look promising. Focus on partnerships and bringing about positive changes that will encourage you to do your very best. Love is in the stars, and a romantic gesture will improve your relationship with someone special. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Dont believe hearsay. One of your peers or friends will disappoint you. Keep personal information a secret and your passwords and important documents in a safe place. A loss is likely if you are too trusting. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Good things are heading your way. Travel, communication and networking will bring about positive changes to the way you deal with others. Youll have greater opportunities to advance. Improved fitness will lead to a new and improved self-image. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A surprise or proposal should be handled carefully. If you are too quick to complain, you may miss out on something special. Listen to what others have to say and decide only after you fully understand whats being offered. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): If you cant figure out where you stand with someone, ask. Its better to know what you are up against before you waste too much energy on something that has too many obstacles. Positive change will come from thorough research. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Be careful when dealing with emotional issues. Someone will use the information you share against you. Concentrate on work and the types of changes you can make in order to get more involved in something you enjoy. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Emotions will be difficult to control. Only share your feelings with people you trust. Making plans that will improve your standard of living should be considered. The more hands-on you are, the quicker youll reach your goal. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Sharing your thoughts with others will lead to questions and concerns. Make a point to iron out any hurdles that have the potential to grow if they are not taken care of soon. Listen, but dont give in to emotional manipulation. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Nothing will happen if you dont take measures to make positive changes. Emotional blackmail and denial can set you back. Look at the possibilities that exist and put together a plan that will improve your life. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Spice up your life. Try something new, but take care of your responsibilities first. Feeling free and clear to follow your dreams will make it much easier to accomplish what you set out to do.

Kansas, Duke and Gonzaga are the only other schools working on at least 15 in a row. Louisville, which finished 10 for 16 from 3-point range, took control with a quick 14-1 spurt midway through the first half and outscored the Seminoles 27-5 over the last 11 minutes to go into the break with a 41-22 advantage. That marked the fewest points in a half this season for Florida State, which was third in the ACC in scoring at 82 points per game. FSU missed 15 of its final 17 field goal attempts before halftime and shot 8 for 30 overall (26.7 percent) in the opening period. I just think that we played against a team that was really dialed in, tuned in, and we werent quite as sharp as we needed to be, Seminoles coach Leonard Hamilton said. If we have an opportunity to go to the NCAA Tournament, Im sure that well play with a lot more sense of urgency to bounce back from what we thought was a poor performance today.BIG PICTURELouisville: Trying to salvage a tumultuous, scandal-plagued season by at least making the NCAA Tournament, the Cardinals might have needed this one more than Florida State. Louisville had dropped four of five and seven of 10, including an excruciating 67-66 loss to Virginia at home last Thursday. After losing the regular-season finale at North Carolina State two days later, Padgett acknowledged his team couldnt afford a quick exit in Brooklyn. Whether the Cardinals need to upset Virginia, too, remains to be seen. ... Louisville had been 0-2 in ACC Tournament games. ... Adel scored in double figures for the 23rd consecutive game. Florida State: Looking to make consecutive trips to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2012, the Seminoles have reason to believe their resume is worthy. They beat Florida, Virginia Tech and Louisville on the road, plus North Carolina, Clemson and Miami at home. ... Florida State has lost five of eight and six of 10. ... FSU had won six straight ACC Tournament openers.BLOCK PARTYThe teams combined for 21 blocked shots (11 by FSU), a tournament record. Anas Mahmoud led the way with five for Louisville, and Obiagu had four for Florida State. It was the first Division I game this season in which both teams blocked at least 10 shots.HISTORY LESSONThe previous time these programs faced each other in a league tournament was 1991, when Florida State rallied from 20 points down to defeat Louisville for the Metro Conference championship. The Seminoles and Cardinals squared off five times in the title game of the old Metro Conference. Louisville leads the all-time series 34-11 after taking two of three meetings this season, with each winning on the others home court. FSU Continued From 1BCOURTESYLouisvilles Dwayne Sutton ties up Florida States Braian Angola during the ACC Tournament on Wednesday. The Cardinals eliminated the Seminoles 82-74.
