Thanks for reading. The appeal alleges numerous problems in the trial. The city used an improper legal defense called equitable estoppel, improperly attacked the companys expert witness, accused the companys attorneys of scheming to mislead and deceive the jury and disallowed certain evidence from being admitted, only to use the lack of that evidence as a sword against the company, according to the appeal. Americas CNG alleges the city refused to honor the terms of a 10-year contract both parties signed in 2015. The city was to sell natural gas to Americas CNG, which would use it to operate a facility in Columbia County, according to the contract. During the following months, City Manager Wendell Johnson grew suspicious of the companys intentions and hit the stop button on the contract, refusing to follow through, the lawsuit states. The city demanded Americas CNG sign a non-compete clause promising not to poach existing city customers, which the company included in the original contract and the city shot down, according to the lawsuit. Americas CNG lost the money it spent preparing to execute the contract and the profits it would have made from selling the natural gas, the lawsuit states. At trial, the citys attorney inappropriately compared the companys argument to the for want of a nail proverb, according to the appeal. The attorney asked potential jurors to say how much they agree with the story on a scale of one to 10, the appeal states. The attorney described a defective nail being put in a horseshoe and attached to a horse, according to the appeal. The gist of the story is what are the consequences of that defective nail, what it is what does it cost, what sort of damages flow from that defective nail, the appeal states. So the story goes like this. Because of the defective nail[,] the horseshoe fell off. Because the horseshoe fell off the horse stumbled. Because the horse stumbled the rider was thrown from the horse. Because the rider was thrown from the horse he was killed in battle. Because he was killed in battle the war was lost and the kingdom fell. The citys comments were an attempt to illustrate that just because one event happens before another doesnt necessarily mean one caused the other. In other words, the jurors cannot blame the failure of ACNGs natural gas business on any action or inaction of the City, the appeal states, reciting the citys argument. This story was told for one purpose: to pre-try the Citys defense and prejudice the entire jury pool against the idea of holding the City accountable for ACNGs damages. The added remark that if you hold a nail manufacturer responsible for the fall of the kingdom, there would be no more nail manufacturers was especially egregious and prejudicial, the appeal states. The juror pool had a significant number of individuals who lived in or around the city and were concerned a verdict against the city would harm them financially due to social, economic or personal relations with the city, according to the appeal. By blatantly suggesting that if the jury ruled against the City it would bankrupt the City, counsel was directly appealing to the jurors self-interest, the appeal states. Americas CNG also claims a 10-day gap in the proceedings caused by Hurricane Irma prevented it from getting a fair trial because the storm distracted jurors away from the facts of the case and instead on the impact of the natural disaster on their lives, according to the appeal. The gap came in the middle of the cross examination of City Manager Wendell Johnson, one of the most important witnesses in the trial, giving him enough time to reconsider his testimony, prepare for continued cross examination and gather his composure, the appeal states. Johnson could not be reached for comment. APPEALContinued From 1AThe juror pool had a signicant number of individuals who lived in or around the city and were concerned a verdict against the city would harm them nancially due to social, economic or personal relations with the city, according to the appeal. stemmed from multiple late February incidents uncovered after the stores regional loss prevention manager received an anonymous tip and began an internal investigation. The tip said that the 2172 SE Baya Drive locations store manager, Clark, was taking cash and cash deposits from the establishment. The warrant detailed the loss prevention managers investigation cen tered on two incidents he uncovered fr om bank statements, store records and video surveillance. Due to video footage from the store and conflicting bank statements it is believed that Staci Clark took posses sion of the deposit funds [$2554] and did not deposit into the bank thus taking the funds, the warrant stated. Mostly, the loss prevention managers records showed that deposited bags, each with unique numerical iden tifiers, did not match those dropped off at the bank and were later found miss ing from the store Clark was identified leaving with the amounts. A deposit was prepared at closing time on February 18, 2018 by [an] employee with bag seal ending in 292, the warrant said. It was discovered that the aforementioned deposit was never received by Columbia Bank on supplied bank statements reflecting deposit dates. Store employees prepared the deposits for bank delivery and Clark later pocketed entire deposits and par tial amounts, the warrant stated. An undisclosed amount was removed from the sealed bag at which point Staci exited the building. Staci then returned without any deposit, the warrant stated. Clark was reportedly fired following the investigation and then contact(ed) by CCSO. MANAGERContinued From 1A arrested by Lake City police at Walmart Monday afternoon and placed in jail on $7,000 bond for misdemeanor possession of narcotic equipment and felony dr ug possession charges. According to the LCPD report, a complaint was received about the noisy vehicle with Hole and an Old Town man inside, whom the caller said were behaving suspiciously. Hole and the man were sitting in the gold Lincoln passenger vehicle, which was registered to a Live Oak woman who was in the store at the time they arrived, according to the report. Both subjects were told the reason why officers were making contact with them. Both subjects acknowledged that the alarm was going off, the report stated. They told the officers the keys were with the vehicles owner in the store and they could not turn off the alarm, the report stated. However, after the woman emerged from the store, the report stated she told the officers she wanted both subjects out of her vehicle because they wer e causing problems. The officers asked the owners permission to search the vehicle and found a small blue and black makeup bag con taining a used needle and another small gr een container with what was described as a small pillshaped amount of meth amphetamine. Hole told officers the drug was meth and the bag and its contents were hers, the report stated. Additionally, officers reported they seized the drivers license and tag after discovering her license was invalid and the license plate had a seize order issued by the state. ALARMContinued From 1A Time, irrigation to spring forwardFrom staff reportsOn Sunday, the Suwannee River Water Management District will spring forward with daylight saving time. In addition to the time change, residents and businesses with in the district are reminded to shift current lawn and irrigation measures. Y ear-round lawn and landscape irrigation measures are a statewide effort among all five of the water management districts.

Scott to meet with Parkland parents as decision loomsBy DARA KIMThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott will meet today with the families of victims of last months mass shoot ing at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, raising expectations that he will sign into law a sweeping school-safety measure that sparked veto requests from critics on both ends of the gun-control spectrum. The proposal (SB 7026) would raise the minimum age from 18 to 21 and require a three-day waiting period for people purchasing rifles and other long gu ns, requirements that already apply to buying handguns. The measure also would ban the sale of bump stocks, which allow semi-automatic rifles to mimic fully automatic weapons. The new gun r estrictions have infuriated the powerful National Rifle Association, in a state the gun-rights organization has used for years as a testing ground for model legislation. Meanwhile, teachers, parents, black lawmakers and other critics are blasting the bill for a controversial provision that would allow specially trained school personnel, including teachers, to bring guns to schools. T eachers who exclusively perform classroom instruction would be excluded fr om the program, mean ing teachers who have other duties, such as drama coaches, would be eligible to par ticipate. The Florida Education Association on Thursday asked Scott to veto the measure, saying more than 200,000 school employ ees could qualify to carry fir earms, which would do more harm than good. Our teachers and other school employees are ready to fiercely defend our students but none of them should ever have to choose between shepherd ing students to safe ty or confronting an armed assailant where they are sure to draw fire towards the very students they are trying to protect, Joanne McCall, president of the teachers union, wrote in a letter to the governor. NRA Florida lobby ist Marion Hammer on Thursday also sent out an emer gency alert to sup porters, urging them to contact Scott and demand a veto. Hammer a former nation al president of the gun-rights gr oup, accused House lead ers of forcing Republicans to support the measure, which the House passed Wednesday in a 67-50 vote. Just 19 of the chambers 77 Republican mem bers opposed the bill, following what Hammer called one of the most despicable displays of bullying and coercion. The proposal violates Second Amendment rights and punishes law-(abiding) citizens for the actions of a mentally ill teenager who murdered 17 people after Florida officials repeated ly refused to get him the help he needed, Hammer wr ote, referring to 19-yearold Nikolas Cruz, who is charged with murdering 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas. The $400 million school-safety package includes money for early mental-health screening and services, school resource officers, school-hardening grants, and $25 million to raze and rebuild the fresh man building where the shooting spree occurred. The bill also includes a com mission that will investigate the events leading up to and r esponse to the attack by Cruz, who had a lengthy history of mental-health problems. The commission will also make recommen dations. S cott has repeatedly said that he objects to the three-day waiting period in the legislation and oppos es arming teachers, but would not say whether he intends to sign the bill. B ut the governor tele graphed what action he might take on the measur e, which the 17 families said they support. Im going to review the bill line-by-line, and the group that Im going to be talking to, the group that I care the most about right now, because it impacted them so much, is the fam ilies, Scott told reporters Wednesday. Immediately following the nations second-worst school shooting, students, parents and teachers from the Parkland school flooded the Capitol, pleading with the Scott and the Legislature to act. Scott

I crawled out of bed, still very sleepy. When I poured my coffee, I dropped my favorite cup and may have said something crude, as my fine cup hit the floor, and ended up in two parts, cup and handle. What is it ceramic? Glass? Fixing it seemed hopeless. But lucky for me, my smart wife was able to glue it back together, with her special arts-and-crafts-type glue stuff (I dont think thats the technical name for it). Dont we live in a world with such serious and widespread problems that they cant be fixed? As I learned from her, you may be surprised what can be fixed. The world faces such huge problems, but are they fixable? Problems like world health, economic distribution, poverty, political systems, racism, crime, and things like global warming? They can feel overwhelming. On the other hand, it amazes me how many regular folks tackle big challenges and causes, and make a difference! I guess the whole human race, and the whole planet, is really a bunch of causes that can be tackled. Are they fixable? Treatable? What needs to happen? People who are concerned, dissatisfied with parts of their world, and determined to do something, show us every day that there are things that can be changed and improved, on all fronts. They care enough to do something. We can all do something! What cause or causes do you think are important and worthwhile? Human rights, school safety and quality of education, equality of opportunity, folks who are disabled, discriminated against, bullied, have low income levels, womens safety issues, or the homeless, abused or neglected children, or the aged, veterans, those with mental issues like depression. Where do you see something you really want to change? Where does it start? It starts with you! What can we each do? Develop an attitude, and choose some action! Is it Special Forces who say leave no man behind? The psychology of positive thinking, and positive living, can be a valuable and useful tool: Look for the good in everyone, the good side of every issue. What can you learn that will help you know what to do? Choose to think positively, and substitute any negative feelings (and we all have them) for love! Be open to new and different ideas. Reach out to others who care. Join groups who have a cause you share. Take on a project or two; either on your own where you see a need, or with others who want to help. It can start anywhere your job, your school, your neighbor, your social group, your family, community, or local government. It could affect everyone you meet today. A smile in the grocery store. A dollar for Girl Scouts, or a youth football team selling balloons for new uniforms. Just do it. Look for those opportunities where you can make something in your world a little better. Educate yourself. Seek and notice those places you can help, and think about what you can do. No matter how big, or how small something as little as one smile, if it even helps one person a little, might be shared and spread to lots of others. Choose to be part of the solution, and you definitely wont be part of the problem. When you reach out, instead of pointing a finger of blameshake a hand! Replace any resentments you may feel with love. I noticed today that the word character has act right in the middle of itIts not what you say, but more what you act on. The butterfly effect everythings connected, and the smallest action changes the world.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINIONMore than just a fire truckColumbia County Fire Rescue is proud of its newest rig, and rightly so. Its not so much the hardware it carries, but the training and dedication of the men and women aboard that make this ride special. Advanced Life Support is what makes this engine different, and those three words mean everything to someone in respiratory distress or worse. County first responders can now provide lifesaving assistance formerly only available in an ambulance. For rural residents in particular, great news indeed, with a second ALSequipped engine soon to come. On behalf of all the lives that are going to be saved, thank you to Chief Jeff Crawford and everyone at CCFR who worked to make this a reality. Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY Can it be fixed?On this date: In 1661, Cardinal Jules Mazarin, the chief minister of France, died, leaving King Louis XIV in full control. In 1796, the future emperor of the French, Napoleon Bonaparte, married Josephine de Beauharnais. (The couple later divorced.) In 1862, during the Civil War, the ironclads USS Monitor and CSS Virginia (formerly USS Merrimac) clashed for five hours to a draw at Hampton Roads, Va. In 1916, Mexican raiders led by Pancho Villa attacked Columbus, N.M., killing 18 Americans. In 1933, Congress, called into special session by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, began its hundred days of enacting New Deal legislation. In 1945, during World War II, U.S. B-29 bombers launched incendiary bomb attacks against Japan, resulting in an estimated 100,000 deaths. In 1954, CBS newsman Edward R. Murrow critically reviewed Wisconsin Sen. Joseph R. McCarthys anti-communism campaign on See It Now. In 1963, two Los Angeles police officers, Ian Campbell and Karl Hettinger, were disarmed and abducted by ex-convicts Gregory Powell and Jimmy Lee Smith during a traffic stop in Hollywood; the officers were taken to an onion field near Bakersfield, Calif., where Campbell was shot to death while Hettinger managed to escape. (Powell and Smith were sent to prison; the case was detailed in the book The Onion Field by Joseph Wambaugh.) In 1962, the science fantasy novel A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine LEngle was first published by Farrar, Straus & Giroux. It can start anywhere. A smile in the grocery store.

Maybe its the squeeze of international sanctions. Maybe its both. But after years of brinkmanship and missile tests, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un appears to be signaling willingness to talk to the U.S. about rolling back his nuclear weapons program, and halting missile and nuclear tests while negotiations are ongoing. South Korean envoys wrapping up a two-day visit with Kim announced the news. If genuine, the development represent a remarkable about-face by the North Korean leader, who within the last year has exploded what was widely believed to be a hydrogen bomb, and has tested intercontinental ballistic missiles meant to have U.S. cities within range New York, Washington, D.C. and Chicago. So far, the Trump administrations reaction has been measured. For the first time in many years, a serious effort is being made by all parties concerned, Trump tweeted Tuesday. May be false hope but the U.S. is ready to go hard in either direction! We share the skepticism. Kim and his predecessors have played this game of freeze and thaw before: Pyongyang dangles the promise of denuclearization, only to renege. North Korea agreed to abandon its nuclear weapons in 2005 during the so-called six-party talks, then restarted its program three years later. During the Obama administration, Pyongyang in 2012 agreed to halt nuclear testing. Ten months later, ballistic missile testing resumed, followed by another nuclear test. In all, Pyongyang has carried out three underground nuclear detonations and test launches of more than 40 ballistic missiles since 2014. So Washington should proceed cautiously, in keeping with U.S. wariness about the rapprochement gelling between North and South Korea. That flirtation flourished during the Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, most notably when athletes from both countries marched together during the opening ceremonies under a unification flag. Skepticism about North Koreas offer was reflected Tuesday in remarks by Lt. Gen. Robert Ashley Jr., head of the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency, at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing. Ashley said Kim shows no interest in walking away from his nuclear or his ballistic missile programs. Additional missile launches are a near certainty, and further nuclear tests are possible. Pyongyang would like nothing more than a scaling back of sanctions as a prelude to talks but Trump should decline any such demand. The prospect of sanctions removal should be in play only when the world sees an end to North Koreas nuclear program. The North Korean regimes motives have always been consistent, no matter which member of the Kim family has been at the helm. Stay in power, get the 20,000 American troops deployed in South Korea to leave the Korean peninsula, and ultimately bring South Korea under Pyongyangs rule. That should always inform Americas approach to Kim, particularly when he clutches an olive branch. Its been 64 years since the Korean War ended in a stalemate, dividing the peninsula into communist North and democratic South. The specter of conflict has loomed over the region ever since. The world would gleefully welcome a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula. But it also is all too aware of Pyongyangs promises of the past, and the hollowness of those promises.Chicago Tribune

Then Jesus tells Peter and the other disciples that he will build his church, using them in the process. What happens next they do not see coming. Please read Matthew 16:21-23. A shift in Jesus ministry takes place as he reveals the Fathers plan concerning what must happen in Jerusalem. Now Peter is going to experience shock because of what he has learned. Life is like that sometimes. One moment were excited for Jesus, the next we are struggling with what we have learned. Can you imagine Jesus telling Peter from that moment on he was making him aware constantly what was going to happen in Jerusalem? No one likes to go through suffering. But Jesus has to go through suffering and death so that he is able to be the perfect high priest who is able to sympathize with us in areas of life. Peter did the unexpected after Jesus revealed how he was going to suffer at the hands of the spiritual leaders in Jerusalem. He pulled Jesus aside and rebuked him! Peter didnt want anything to happen to Jesus. Sometimes in our daily lives we struggle with what the Lord reveals to us and we pull a Peter ourselves. We pull Jesus aside and tell him no way! But Jesus in love does the same thing to us that he did to Peter. He rebukes us. Just as Satan had opposed Jesus after his baptism, now he is influencing Peter to oppose Gods plan concerning Jesus and the redemption of humanity. Often times in our lives we get comfortable and when God wanta to use us to fulfill his plan we oppose him at first because we dont see the big picture that God sees. Paul gives us some instruction in Colossians 3:2: Set your minds on things that are above, not on the things that are on earth. The reason why Paul writes this is so that the Colossian believers can put on the new self. Peter could not get over hearing about Jesus death and hear the words on the third day be raised. The reason why a lot of people are not successful in their lives is because they are opposing Gods plan concerning them. We all want the blessings of God on our lives. However, if we oppose his plan concerning Jesus and he wants to use us, we will find ourselves being rebuked like Peter. As we grow in our faith with the Lord we begin to ask Jesus to help us understand what he is trying to teach us so that we can learn. When we learn what he is teaching us and apply his truth to our lives, he blesses us with what he knows best. We can start receiving Gods blessing by surrendering the control of our lives to him. Trust and obey! Robert Bass is pastor of First Baptist Church of Lake City. Robert Bassrobertcbass@yahoo.com Billy Graham: Prophet and theologianJ. Lee Grady in an article lauded Billy Graham for his example of honesty, integrity, purity and humility. Lee commented, So much of what we call ministry today has been compromised by ego Billy Graham raised the bar for all ministers. I pray we will never forget his legacy. While he was not perfect, there was only one who was, I wholeheartedly agree with Lee. But as you might suspect, not everyone shares our perspective. Conservative intellectual George Will wrote, Graham was no theologian. Neither was he a prophet. Intellectuals tend to think they know everything, but Wills reasoning shows he is neither a theologian nor a prophet himself. Will cites as a reference, that Graham was no theologian, an answer he gave when he was asked if he believed in miracles. Graham said television and cars are examples of miracles. I have read a number of Grahams books and to say he is no theologian based on a shallow comment, uttered possibly in the infancy of his ministry and Christian walk, is no cause to say he is no theologian. The sorts of miracles recorded in Scripture confound human reasoning, and cannot be explained by it. They are a mystery one either believes or doesnt believe, and are beyond the ability to prove or disprove. But if one believes in an omniscient, omnipotent God then His supernatural intervention in human history is not inconceivable. Quoting Jesus, something hypocritical for an atheist like Will to do, who believes there is no God, Jesus isnt His Son, nor are the Scriptures inspired by the nonexistent one, Will comments that Graham who was honored by being called Americas Pastor disqualifies him as a prophet because Jesus said, A prophet is not without honor except in his own country. This is where Will fails as an exegete. Jesus was not issuing a prophetic requirement; he was simply making the observation that familiarity CHRISTIAN CONCEPTS Gary Kinggarybkingcc@gmail.comLike spring, you can embrace changeAs I have watched The Weather Channel this winter, I am more thankful than ever to live in Florida! There were many days when our little state was the only ground not literally covered with snow and ice. And yet, my feet stay cold from November till April. Between that and my thick southern accent, I would have to stock up on wool socks and a find a translator to survive up north! So, Im wondering if you have enjoyed the few warm afternoons lately teasing us toward spring as much as I have. I think spring is the season that yells NEW to us like nothing else. After months of everything looking dead, life begins to reappear. Miraculously, God is up to a new thing as He renews the earth! And yet, too often we take it for granted. Perhaps we just get used to the routine and stop really seeing it. Listen to the words of Isaiah 43:16-19: This is what the LORD says He who made a way through the sea, a path through the mighty waters, who drew out the chariots and horses, the army and reinforcements together, and they lay there, never to rise again, extinguished, snuffed out like a wick: Forget the former things: do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up, do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland I provide water in the desert and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen, the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise. For generations, the children of Israel had repeated the testimony of God delivering them from slavery in Egypt by way of the Red Sea. Indeed, He parted those mighty waters and they walked through on dry ground. He also closed those waters over Pharaohs army and sent the Israelites on their way (Exodus 14). At the time of Isaiahs writing, the Israelites have once again found themselves enslaved. Not by Egypt this time, but by Babylon. No Red Sea, just a lot of sand. And God wants them HEART MATTERS Angie Landangieland3@windstream.netGRAHAM continued on 6A CHANGE continued on 6AFor generations, the children of Israel had repeated the testimony of God delivering them from slavery in Egypt by way of the Red Sea.

6A F RIDAY, MARCH 9, 2018 RELIGION LAKE CITY REPORTER TM Save the Date FOR THE Happy 90 th Birthday!Dad, we love you and thank God for you! From: Vivian, Glyn, Milton, L.C., Otis Jr. and a host of grandchildren O J. B, S. March 10th to trust Him to deliver, but they cant see how He can. According to verse 22: Yet you have not called upon me they are just used to the routine. This is where we are, this is how it is. If we arent careful, we can make an idol out of our routine. We hold on to it so tight that we cant see God doing a new thing all around us, or IN us! What new thing does God want to do in your life? Renew your marriage? Make a new friend or heal a broken relationship? Is it time to get serious about taking care of your health, get your finances under control or just break a bad habit? If you are honest, you already have an idea of what He wants to do; you just havent been willing to change. We settle with this is where I am, this is how it is because change is such a scary word and an even scarier thought. But what if the change is worth the change? What if you had help? This is what the LORD says He who made you, who formed you in the womb, and who will help you: Do not be afraid Isaiah 44:2. This may be where you are, but it doesnt have to be where you stay. Let Him do a new thing so that you may proclaim His praise! Heart Matters is a weekly column written by Angie Land, director of the Family Life Ministries of the Lafayette Baptist Association, where she teaches bible studies, leads marriage and family conferences, and oers biblical counseling to individuals, couples and families.with someone often blinds us to who they actually are. In His hometown of Nazareth Jesus was known as Josephs son, they did not recognize Him as Gods Son. The New York Post was no kinder; it claimed Graham was a pernicious influence on presidents and politics. Of course, it could not cite a specific instance of this deadly advice Graham supposedly was dispensing or how it had affected the political course of the United States. The NYP was probably jealous that Graham had more influence than the paper had. Jesus said, Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you, Matthew 5:11-12. I think Jesus is in better company and enjoying a greater reward than George Will or the New York Post will ever know. Gary B. King can be reached at garybkingcc@gmail.com.

Columbias Jordan Maxwell and Meshac Maddox combined for 25 points yet it wasnt enough to claim the third place spot at the State Championships. Theres no hard feelings for the Tigers, though, despite the season-ending loss. Columbia returns home proud after reaching the Final Four for the first time ever. They were very happy, coach John Brown said after the Special Olympics final. They were happy just being able to play at the Lakeland Center. Thats not an everyday occasion. The Tigers defeated Homestead in an exhibition game back in November. But with the stakes much higher, Columbia couldnt grab the lead Thursday. The Tigers were in contention for most the contest, coach Brown says, but they committed pivotal fouls down the stretch that let the Miami-Dade County team to claim the bronze.

Shes been pitching like that all year, Gainesville coach Chris Chronister said about Humphrey. Columbia is a good hitting team, and we hadnt really faced anyone with the kind of lineup like they have.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Work on your financial documents. Make sure you have everything up-to-date before you submit your tax return or deal with a financial institution. Put your money where it counts, not in someone elses pocket. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A surprise will help you win someones favor. Consider making changes to a partnership that you feel has greater potential. Someone from a different background will give you greater insight into how you are perceived by others. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Problems will mount if you are too open about the way you feel or what you are doing. Someone will take advantage of you or take credit for what you have done.

Participating in energetic activities or events will bring about positive changes that will promote better health. Your enthusiasm will add to your popularity. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Emotional matters will be difficult to control. Try to be understanding and look for a solution without arguing. If you are reluctant to compromise, you may end up being left out. Look at all sides of a situation before you disagree. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A pleasure trip, shopping spree or time spent with someone who appreciates you will improve your day. An interesting opportunity will develop if you attend a reunion or get together with an old friend. Romance is highlighted. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Work hard and accomplish whats expected of you.

Set your goals and dont stop until you feel satisfied with what youve accomplished. Plan to celebrate with someone who has helped you out. DEAR ABBY: My granddaughter is getting married in seven months and Im worried for her. I see many red flags shes ignoring. Because Im old, I dont think she will believe me. You have printed a list of warning signs of an abusive mate. Can you print it again so I can give it to her? PERCEPTIVE IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR PERCEPTIVE: Gladly, because it could be a lifesaver. (1) PUSHES FOR QUICK INVOLVEMENT: Comes on strong, claiming, Ive never felt loved like this by anyone. An abuser pr essures the new partner for an exclusive commitment almost immediately. (2) JEALOUS: Excessively possessive; calls constantly or visits unexpectedly; pr events you from going to work because you might meet someone; checks the mileage on your car.

DEAR ABBY : My 14-year-old daughter caught her father, my husband, emailing and texting other women. He has been doing it for months. He says he went on dating sites because he was unhappy in our marriage and needed attention and to feel desirable. He claims he only emailed and texted these women discussing r elationship troubles, no sex talk. Im furious he was so careless that our daughter found the emails (in one he stated his sex drive was very high and asked how her sex drive was). I am devastated that he would do this to our family. He says he didnt think it was cheating because it was only online and sex wasnt discussed. Please advise. FURIOUS IN THE SOUTH DEAR FURIOUS: Your husband isnt being honest. At the very least there W AS sex talk as soon as he used that three-letter word in his emails/ texts to the women on the dating sites. Y ou two are overdue for a visit to a marriage and family therapist to determine if the damage your husband has done to his r elationship with you and his daughter can be repaired. Please do not wait to schedule an appointment. DEAR ABBY : My ex-wife and I were together for five years (married for two). While she was with me I suppor ted her financially and put her through college. She left me a year ago. I was the one who filed for divorce. After she left, I gave her half the money in my savings account to help her while she was tr ying to land on her feet. She has found a job now, but struggles to pay bills. Recently she called and asked me to lend her money to help with her power bill. I refused. While I understand that shes no longer my financial responsibility, I still feel compelled to help her What can I do to prevent her from putting me in an awkward situation (I have since moved on to a new relationship) without having to be a complete jerk? NICE GUY IN TEXAS DEAR NICE GUY : As you accurately put it, your ex-wife is no longer your responsibility. After she walked out on you, you did the right thing in filing for divorce. You are acting like you feel guilty for doing so. By paying for her education and enabling her to support herself, you were mor e than generous. The surest way to prevent yourself from being hit on for money would be to respond with a firm and final NO.

By TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressMIAMI Dwyane Wade went to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High hoping to spread some goodwill and bring much-needed smiles to faces of students and teachers. He also went to listen and was impressed by what the kids said. Speaking Thursday about his surprise visit the previous day to the school in Parkland, Florida were 17 people mostly students were shot and killed last month, the Miami Heat guard said he was stunned to see how well-organized the Douglas students are already in their quest for fast and substantive societal change. They are well-prepared and well-aware of what they need to do and what they want to do and the change they want to see, Wade said. Its great. Its great to hear. Its great to see that, because I come from a community in Chicago where our youth are getting killed daily and dont have the same voice, dont have the same light on them that Parkland has. These kids understand what they have. Numerous students posted video and photos of Wades visit on social media. Only a few of Wades closest advisers were aware of his plan to go to the school Wednesday in advance, and students made clear his visit provided a huge emotional lift. Greatest moment of my life, student Joey Pelose said of the Wade visit. Wades family has been touched multiple times by gun violence, including when his cousin a mother of four was shot and killed on a Chicago street in 2016, with police saying she was not the intended target. The shooting in Parkland has affected him deeply as well, not just for the schools proximity to Miami and to a school that one of his sons attends, but also because one of the victims was buried in a Wade jersey. Wade has also met with the family of that teen, Joaquin Oliver and promised them that he would keep using his voice to help facilitate change. Its a call to action for all of us and were honored to be just a small part of it to support them and hopefully give them all a much bigger megaphone, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. We can help with that, but what bigger megaphone can you have than Dwyane Wade going down there and allowing their voices to be heard so many other places. Thats powerful. Wades visit was one of several examples of how the sports world keeps trying to help the school heal. Major League Baseball teams all wore Stoneman Douglas hats in their spring-training openers. Last week, a contingent of representatives from the Heat (including Spoelstra and players Udonis Haslem, Justise Winslow and Kelly Olynyk, plus Haslems wife Faith), the Florida Panthers, the Miami Marlins and Miami Dolphins all privately met with five families of students who were wounded in the Feb. 14 massacre to offer help. Earlier this week, the Panthers arranged for the schools hockey team to hoist and skate with the Stanley Cup. We know we did the right thing, said Panthers executive Shawn Thornton, who helped arrange the Cup visit. And Wednesday night, when the U.S. womens national soccer team beat England 1-0 to win the SheBelieves Cup tournament in Orlando, Florida, the match was preceded by a moment of silence for Douglas soccer player and shooting victim Alyssa Alhadeff. Her family and teammates all received U.S. jerseys with Alhadeffs name and number on them. Just when I think there are no more tears to cry, student Aly Sheehy wrote on Twitter in response to the gesture at the U.S.-England match. Thank you ... for allowing us to come and heal. Florida lawmakers earlier this week passed a school safety bill with new restrictions on rifle sales and a program to arm some teachers, though it remains unclear if Gov. Rick Scott will sign the bill which has the support of victims families into law. 6B F RIDAY, MARCH 9, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER NBAThursdays Games Brooklyn 125, Charlotte 111 Miami 108, Philadelphia 99 Boston 117, Minnesota 109 Oklahoma City 115, Phoenix 87 San Antonio at Golden State, 10:30 p.m.NHLThursdays Games Columbus 5, Colorado 4, OT Winnipeg 3, New Jersey 2 Boston 3, Philadelphia 2 Buffalo 4, Ottawa 3, SO Florida 5, Montreal 0 Vegas 4, Detroit 0 Tampa Bay 5, N.Y.

TENNESSEE TITANS Plan to release running back DeMarco Murray.Rose signs with Minnesota, reunites with ThibodeauMINNEAPOLIS (AP) For Derrick Rose, whats old is new again. Rose has signed with the Minnesota Timberwolves in a move that reunites the 2011 NBA MVP with three mainstays from his days in Chicago coach Tom Thibodeau, as well as Jimmy Butler and Taj Gibson. The Timberwolves did not release the terms, but a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that the deal is for the remainder of the season. Minnesota will be the fourth team Rose plays for, and technically his fourth franchise in the last 11 months. Rose spent his first eight NBA years in Chicago, five of those with Thibodeau as his coach. He was with New York last season and started this season with Cleveland, but appeared in only 16 games with the Cavaliers largely because of injuries.FSU softball shuts out Penn in ClearwaterCLEARWATER Scoring fast and playing quality defense carried No. 15 Florida State (16-6) to a 12-0 in five innings over Penn (1-10) on Thursday afternoon at Eddie C. Moore Field. The Seminoles got on the board quick ly as the first six batters all reached base before recording an out in the top of the first inning. Cali Harrod opened the game with a walk and Jessie Warren was hit by a pitch. Sydney Sherrill lined a RBI single to right center and Carsyn Gordon hit an RBI single up the middle for a 2-0 lead. Cassidy Davis reached on a Penn throwing error and Elizabeth Mason followed with a walk. Sabrina Stutsman was hit by a pitch to load the bases and Harrods second walk of the inning made it a 5-0 game. Warren closed out the scoring in the inning with a three-run triple to right field. Davis hit a solo home run in the FSU second inning and the Noles added three more runs in the third. Zoe Casas led off with a walk and Warren followed with an infield single. Gordon had her second RBI single of the game, and Davis made it 12-0 Seminoles with a two-out double to left center. FSUs Savanna Copeland (1-0) made her first career start, giving up just two hits and a walk over 4.0 innings with three strikeouts. Davis closed out the game with a scoreless inning, allowing one walk. The Cavaliers traded the former AllStar to Utah last month as part of the massive restructuring of their team, and the Jazz waived him shortly afterward. Rose has been working out since, and this week became a father again just three days before completing the deal with the Timberwolves, who were willing to wait for his new daughter to arrive before asking him to make the move. NBAWade on Parkland students: They are very impressiveMATIAS J. OCNER/Miami HeraldThe Miami Heats Dwyane Wade stands next to Andrea Ghersi, the sister of Joaquin Oliver, 17, who was killed in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, during the singing of the national anthem before the Heat faced the Detroit Pistons at the AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami on March 3. cial olympians and two UNIFY players (typically junior varsity players). Hamilton County defeated Poinciana 66-45 in Thursdays state final. The fourth-place Tigers look ahead to next basketball season as they hope to build on this years breakout campaign. Maddox and Maxwell were joined this season by Tyquez Jones, Kabelo Sefamelo, Walter Hayes, Jaylon Thomas, Tyleke Jernigan, Jaquelous Hollie, Issac Coore, Jaquez Jones, Fonsa Bryant, Dorian Morriss. Well just get ready for next season, and hopefully we can make it into the championship game next year, Brown said. *UNIFY track season begins next week STATE Continued From 1B CHS top scorers on Thursday ROUNDUPThe win gets the Indians (4-2, 2-1) back over .500 in district play after losing to P.K. Yonge on Tuesday. They also jumped the Panthers (4-3, 1-2) in the standings early on in one of the tougher districts in the area. Both pitchers threw a heck of game. That lefty is good, Fort White coach Rick Julius said. We put the ball in play a little bit but they made all the plays for him. We played a lot better defense than we did the other night. When you have a pitching duel its just going to come down to who gets lucky at the end. Thats what it comes down to. Sipprell retired the first two batters but Couey then singled to give the Indians some life. Jacob Sosa then doubled to put the runners on the corners and bring up Shelnut, who was intentionally walked to load the diamond. Julius wasnt the least bit surprised. Shelnut, on the other hand, was a bit annoyed he didnt get a chance to swing the bat. But when he saw Keen lose sight of the ball and Couey take off, he knew the game was over. I was excited. I knew he was going to make it because I know how he is. Hes like me, competitive, Shelnut said. As soon as that ball went passed that catcher, I knew he was going to beat it. Prior to the seventh inning, the teams only sent the ball out of the infield twice each as Shelnut and Sharp dominated on the mound. The Indians didnt even put a runner in scoring position until the seventh, while the Panthers left a runner in scoring position in the second and had another caught stealing third in the seventh. He was a good pitcher and good competition. It makes me have to work harder, Shelnut said. Pitching against a guy like that is fun. Its a battle. You cant mess up. Its who gives first. Rudy Bostick led off the seventh for the Panthers with a single and moved over to second base on Keens ground out. Palatka then sent in Matt Sharp to pinch run and immediately got caught stealing third when he was gunned down by Fort White catcher Caleb Mathews. That wasnt the only drama in the inning either. The home plate umpire thought the inning was over when he called Chris Hudson out on strikes, except it was only strike two. Both teams went into their dugouts and had to be called back out shortly after. But that didnt phase Shelnut one bit. He zipped another fast ball by Hudson for one last strikeouts, this time officially, to set his offense up for the win. I was one mad son of a gun. I came out there and threw the ball about four miles per hour faster. I was going to strike him out. That was it, Shelnut said.I said it before the game, these are two gritty teams that work hard, and it could go either way at anytime, Columbia coach Trudy Andrews said. The difference is you have to take advantage of the [opponents] weaknesses. The weaknesses that are given to you, you have to take advantage of it and they were able to. Columbias student section was brought to a whisper when Gainesville slugger Hallie Karas tied the score on a two-run shot over the left field wall in the sixth. The clutch homer redeemed the Lady Hurricanes, who fell behind by three runs thanks to poor defensive play. Columbia (9-2, 2-1) entered the sixth with a 3-1 advantage, scoring two of those runs on early errors against visiting Gainesville (11-0, 5-0). That was incredible, Chronister said. We did not look good coming out the gate. We struggled with the bats and didnt look good defensively. They turned it around. We started to put the bat on the ball and got some key at-bats. While Karas went yard to knot the score, it was Humphrey who continued to keep the Lady Tigers at bay after the sixth. She retired the next eight of nine batters and protected the hill until the last out fittingly, ending the game on her 18th strikeout. We were way disciplined at the beginning of the game, Andr ews added.And then we kinda lost that discipline a little bit and chased a lot of balls. They were just wanting make something happen We just have to play our game from the first pitch to the last pitch. Unfortunately things didnt go our way, but thats OK. Id rather it go our way later on. Columbia looks to bounce back at Buchholz Monday night. Gainesville is back on the road against Keystone Heights on Monday night.
