By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comLake City residents and visitors out on a sunny Friday at noon seemed to want only one thing more sun. The Lake City Reporter set out to take the countys pulse on a measure now awaiting the governors signature and congressional approval. Whether they were at the mall, frequenting downtown establishments or taking a brief view of Lake DeSoto, the consensus on Floridas proposal to make Daylight Saving Time permanent was as clear as the 60-degree clear-blue, breezy day. After talking with people across the city, their opinions fell largely into two camps most were either overwhelmingly in support of the measure or plainly indifferent. There were also interesting, and perhaps equally valid, outliers among those the Reporter approached. At Lake City Mall just before noon Friday, Larry and Judy Truax, retired 19-year Lake City residents, were taking a brisk walk. Their opinions were shared in Larrys answer. He said, Yes, definitely, 100 percent, that he wanted year-round Daylight Saving Time and Judy agreed. I like that extra hour in the summer and I dont want it to get so dark in the winter so early, Larry said. A few people had no opinion, some were unfamiliar with the proposal and others simply didnt want Godwin SUNDAY, MARCH 11, 2018 | YOUR COMMUNITY NEWSPAPER SINCE 1874 | $2 LAKECITYREPORTER.COM CALL US: (386) 752-1293 SUBSCRIBE TO THE REPORTER: Voice: 755-5445 Fax: 752-9400 Vol. 143, No. 246 TODAYS WEATHER Opinion . . . . . . 4A Obituary . . . . . . 5A Puzzles . . . . . . . 2-3B Business . . . . . . . 1C Life . . . . . . . . 1D PERSONAL BESTMacDonald soars, 1B 77 56Partly cloudy, 2A Lake City Reporter Historic home on auction block, 1C SUNDAY New jail could lead to great jobs Opinion/4A +PLUS >> TASTE BUDDIES A return to TalesLIFE/1D What do you think?Let us know in a Letter to the Editor.

Khan resigned, reportedly under pressure from Gov. Rick Scott, weeks after the vote. Had someone else made the motion and Khan not been on the board, the motion still would have passed, 3-1. Still, LSHA officials apparently want a clean vote to counter any possi ble future challenge to the decision. Substantive concer ns with the decision to fund the ER renovation were known at the time, including a clause in the lease that r equires HMA/Shands, the company that operates the hospital, to pay for all such upgrades and improve ments in exchange for other considerations, such a s a reduced rental rate, according to Jack Berry, who stepped down last month as LSHA executive director. Berry says he oppos es giving HMA/Shands money to which it isnt enti tled especially since the company isnt living up to the terms of the lease any way, in his view. They should not give them $7.2 million if theyre not maintaining the hospital in accordance with the contract, Berry said. Berry presented LSHA with three engineering reports since 2012 that showed a lack of mainte nance at the facility, he said, but the board kicked the can down the road. Berry said if HMA/ Shands had kept the facili ty properly maintained, he would go so far as to support an interest-free loan for ER expansion costs. The composition of the b oard is much changed since the Oct. 9 vote, with two new members (and two remaining vacancies) on the 7-member panel. Still, it is not clear if the outcome will be any differ ent this time around. I plan to come into the meeting with an open mind, said Jay Swisher, one of the new members. I hope we can have a healthy dialog and a healthy discussion. However Swisher said he puts a lot of weight in the decision of the previous board. That will be a factor in my decision. The LSHA board will meet Monday at 5:15 p.m. at 259 NE Franklin Street, Suite 102. REVOTEContinued From 1A to contribute. A Live Oak woman, Darrilyn Little, who said she has lived in the area a year-and-a-half, held the strongest view in opposition. She said the strain it would place on talking with her son in Alaska and family in California were the reasons she hate[d] it. I dont like the idea because Im already four hours from half of my family on the other coast and it will make us five hours, said Little. Itll be impossible to communicate with them. And I also dont like getting up when its dark. Another individual who declined to give his name echoed Littles view concerning early risers, saying the measure would put kids at risk waiting for the school bus. Ruby Bourne, 80, a self-described snowbird flown in from Oregon and soon to fly out again, said she wished her own governor would pick up on the measure. Id like to see it stay, the governor out there wouldnt go for it though. I just dont see any sense in changing it back and forth. Stability as well as daylight, I like it both, Bourne said. Teenagers visiting from Gainesville and talking in the mall atrium, Nancy Hernandez and Dalia Vences, 16, were not initially aware of the measure, but were strong supporters after hearing its details. Theyre actually doing that? Thats crazy. Imagine that. We would just get used to the same time. We wouldnt have to be worried about when the time was going to change, said Hernandez, who also noted the beautiful sunsets. I be taking pictures around 6 oclock, perfect lighting, she said and laughed. A local couple out celebrating their 60th anniversary, Pete, 86, and Lois Croft, 80, were emphatic supporters of year-round extra sun. Lois said, I want the Daylight Savings Time. They oughta keep it where it should be and leave it alone. They shouldve never changed it to begin with. Across town, two couples were visiting downtown Lake City from Jacksonville one for pleasure, the other business. Dick and Dianne Studstill, lifelong Florida residents, were standing by Lake DeSoto. Dianne said they were out that day touring the smaller cities outside the Jacksonville area. She quickly answered that she favored the measure, Enjoy having more time in the afternoon to do things, work around the house, be at the beach, walk around the beautiful city, Studstill said, motioning downtown. Primadon Godwin, a four-year Lake City resident, was walking with her granddaughter Jayden along Marion street. We think its a good thing We like having the sunlight more, Godwin said referring to her fiance, who she said was a 20-year LC resident. Cass Baker and Trent Oltmer, two twenty-somethings, were walking downtown as well; both said they were Lake City residents. Baker said he supported the measure on grounds of tourism and economic development, while Oltmer shrugged, saying, Yeah, it dont matter. Another Jacksonville couple, Avery, 26, and Emily Williams, 21, both favored the measure. Emily said it would give kids more time to play in the yard. State Rep. Elizabeth Porter of Lake City co-sponsored the legislation, which passed the House Feb. 14, 103-11. The state Senate approved the measure earlier this month. If the measure is signed by Gov. Rick Scott, it will go to Capitol Hill for congressional approval. DAYLIGHTContinued From 1ATRIBUNE NEWS SERVICEState lawmakers voted this month to make Daylight Saving Time year -round. The idea behind the legislation is more sunshine will spur tourism and economic development. A3

DePratter got the deal, but not without scruti ny from three of the seven boar d members, one of whom called his actions somewhat sinister during a hearing Friday in Tallahassee. DePratter previously admitted to use of his com mission seat for personal gain and to maintaining a r elationship with a compa ny doing business with the county. The District 2 commis sioner sold North Florida Fence Company in Mar ch 2014 but retained access to the company bank account as late as 2015, state records show. James Durrance, who bought the company, did not gain access to the account until seven months later. The company, which had done $450 of business with the county commission in 2013, billed the county for $27,067 of work in 2014 and $88,346 in 2015, state records show. During Fridays hear ing, three members of the Florida Commission on Ethics suggested DePratter, who did not appear before the board during the hearing, was getting off light. Michael Cox, a certified financial planner from T rinity, noted that in a recent case the board fined a person the same amount as DePratter for a clerical error in reporting holdings in an IRA. These allega tions are much mor e egregious in my mind, where theyre using their position for special private gain or loss. Five-hundred dol lars is not enough when the county commissioner is saying, Yes, I did it, theyre admit ting to that. DePratter admitted to two violations and was fined $500 for each. Cox made a motion to reject DePratters deal, but it died for lack of a second. Daniel Brady, a social worker from Miami Shores, said DePratters actions struck him as somewhat sinister. A third member, Palm City attorney Jason David Berger, said he would sup port tripling the fine, but did not offer a motion to that effect. A motion to accept the deal passed 5-2, with Brady and Cox dissenting. Before the proceedings began, board member Guy Norris of Lake City pointed out to chairwom an Michelle Anchors that he knows DePratter, but has no business dealings with him. Anchors, a Fort Walton Beach attorney, ruled that did not pose a conflict of interest. DePratter
Eugene McCray was born here in 1947. Twenty years later he died a soldiers death in Viet Nam. His name is engraved on the Viet Nam War Memorial in Washington D. C. Panel 17 East, Line 112. His name is also listed on the Virtual Viet Nam Memorial (The Wall of Faces) but, unlike many others, there is no photo by his name. His information there shows he was from Lake City, Florida, that his rank was Private First Class, and that his body was recovered. But no photo. Obviously the photos give humanity and a personal touch to those listed. Local citizen Mr. Glynnell Presley has made it part of his community service to try to find a copy of Eugenes photo to send to the website. So far, no luck. He has researched school records and made many, many phone calls. He knows that Eugene attended Richardson High School at one point but in those old records he found only a faded elementary photo too tiny and blurred to use. When Eugene died he forfeited all his tomorrows for us. And he did it willingly at the tender age of 20. He deserves to have his photo by his name. If you can help Mr. Presley find a photo of Eugene McCray, or possibly help him contact any member of Eugenes family, please call him at 386-752-4074. REMEMBERING A MIDWIFE (Midwife: a person, typically a woman, trained to assist a woman in childbirth.) The late Rebecca Singleton was one of our busiest midwives back when most babies were born at home. She was officially certified. She was one of 24 black women who completed a midwives seminary at Bethune Cookman College. After her certification she was a practicing midwife locally for more than 50 years and delivered more than 500 babies. 500! In here spare time she also taught school. One of Rebeccas students was Mildred Bennett who herself later became a teacher and then a principal at Fort WhiteBethlehem School. Most families, even the wealthiest, had their babies at home, delivered by midwives like Rebecca Singleton, until the 1930s when Lake Shore Hospital opened. WEAR IT OUT! Dwayne R. (Worm) Bullard (1971-2006) is buried in the Mount Tabor Cemetery. The words on his tombstone are: We should not be on a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, a wrench in one hand and a Bud Lite in the other, thoroughly worn out, screaming Woo Hoo, What a ride!Heres a quick thought that might see a needed county project turn into an instant and sustainable full-time job creator. Im talking about the new Columbia County jail facility that is in the planning stages, but taking shape and scheduled to move forward quickly. The new jail is needed, and the location of the facility appears to be headed to the expansive property where the sheriffs office headquarters currently is located on U.S. 90 East. The project is estimated to cost the county $25 million to build to the size to fit our current needs locally. Heres an idea to consider: What if we invested a little more and built the facility larger? What if we thought in terms of a regional detention facility? What if we ran the numbers, used a little marketing savvy and approached our neighbors in less fortunate, more rural counties and asked them if they had any interest in our housing their lock-ups or their short-term prisoners awaiting their hearings? We put a number on it and they pay us a daily fee to house their prisoners. Im not suggesting we bank this facility on a speculative federal or state prisoner contract that could be yanked at any time. Weve seen that happen nearby and its a bad scenario. Im suggesting some of our smaller sheriffs office and police department neighbors might be eager to get out of the jail business and find it much more affordable to transport those incarcerated to Columbia County and pay us to watch them. What if we turned our jail investment from taxpayers into a jail industry that generated revenue enough to pay for itself and possibly generate a surplus? What if this regional jail concept created double or triple the number of normal full-time career-track jobs? Could it work? Our county continues to look for any economic development boost for new career-track job creation that could add to the stable full-time job base here. There is no question we have a trained workforce ready to go to work in the corrections field. Plus, Florida Gateway College has a training academy cranking out graduates seeking this certification and a job every term. Of course, the details of this venture would be critical. Im neither a law enforcement nor corrections expert. This larger venture would be more challenging to manage, but our sheriff has proven himself more than capable of managing personnel and the peoples money wisely. Yes, the liability is greater, but there is always liability that comes with operating a detention facility. The jail structure our county leaders selected is made primarily of pre-fabricated steel. The shell structures are steel boxes pods, if you will that arrive on flatbed trucks and are bolted together. As long as there is open land, future expansion is not a problem. I mentioned this idea to County Commission Chairman Tim Murphy last week and he said he had heard of the concept being utilized elsewhere. He said he had personally looked into it to the point that from his research and from discussions from others, he had an idea of a daily amount an entity would need to charge per prisoner per day in order to break even. Murphy, who also serves as chairman of the countys Economic Development Advisory Board, said no one else locally had considered the new jail as being a possible economic development catalyst. Right now, Murphy, County Manager Ben Scott, Sheriff Mark Hunter and Chris Douglas are the four men, according to Murphy, focusing most intently on the new jail project. I think its an idea worth close examination and analysis. Sometimes thinking outside the box includes stepping outside a pre-fab steel jail pod and taking a broader look at the possibilities.

This mission will be accomplished through the teamwork of professionals dedicated to truth, integrity and hard work. Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, ChairmanLETTERS TO THE EDITOR OUR OPINIONA chance for LSHA to correct a mistake The Lake Shore Hospital Authority breached the public trust back on Oct. 9 when the board inexplicably voted to give HMA/Shands, the company that operates its hospital, $7.2 million it wasnt owed to build a new emergency room we may or may not need. Under its lease, HMA/Shands (in exchange for a better deal on rent, according to former Executive Director Jack Berry) agreed to pay for maintenance, upgrades and improve ments to Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center. For some reason, LSHA voted to hand over a ton of taxpayer cash anyway. (Never mind theyll have to go in the hole to make good on their promise, possibly cutting back on indi gent services the core function of LSHA in order to balance the books, according to a Dec. 2 analysis by the boards accountant, Richard Powell.) As it happened, though, there were pro cedural problems with the Oct. 9 vote, and the boar d will be forced to revisit the matter Monday night. Some see this as nothing more than a tech nical matter, an opportunity to ratify the previous, flawed vote. W e see it as a chance to set things right. This is public money and it doesnt belong to anybody but the taxpayers of Columbia County. Some board members seem perplexed by the current state of affairs, befuddled over what to do with the millions in reserves LSHA has piled up. Thats easy. Just because the money has been collected doesnt mean it has to be spent on some pet project or, in this case, given away. Instead, cut the current millage rate by half and give county taxpayers a break for the next few years, as LSHA lives off its savings. State law requires the board keep about $5 million in reserve for emergencies, so theres no dan ger in suddenly going broke. Somethings been lost in translation along the way for some LSHA members. If you ar e set on changing the boards core mission, so be it. But state your aims openly. And dont claim for even one minute longer to serve the hardworking people of this town.

LOUIS Collin Sexton and Alabama were making another push in the second half, cutting Kentuckys big lead down to nine with 5:15 remaining. But when Wenyen Gabriel knocked down his seventh 3-pointer on the next possession, the Wildcats were on their way. Gabriel whipped up his hands, prompting a thundering Go Big Blue chant from the thousands of Kentucky fans at Scottrade Center. His teammates were shoving him around as he repeatedly tossed up three fingers. Gabriel shot 7-for-7 on 3s and matched his career high with 23 points, sending Kentucky past Alabama 86-63 Saturday in the Southeastern Conference Tournament semifinals. I think I was in the zone after probably my third 3, Gabriel said. Ive had a game like that before. Obviously, not in a Kentucky uniform yet. That was great to have one of these today for my confidence going forward.

PREP FOOTBALLGabriel drains 7 treys, Wildcats will face Tennessee in SEC Championship.COURTESYWenyen Gabriel celebrates after hitting one of his seven 3-pointers against Alabama on Saturday. MacDonald sets personal-bests for district title, Jones & Masters also win.By JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comPeyton MacDonalds season was going according to plan. He was on pace to possibly break school records. Then came the flu. Then a toothache, which resulted in its extraction. He lost 15 pounds and scratched 345 pounds on three straight reps just one week ago at Eastside. With the District 3-2A meet fast approaching, MacDonald was worried. But on the big stage Friday afternoon, MacDonald laid those worries to rest. MacDonald set personal records across the board, benching 360 pounds and putting up 310 pounds on the clean and jerk for a 670 total to take the district title in the 219-pound weight class. His 310 clean and jerk came right after he missed a rep of 300, and it resulted TIGERS continued on 4BCOLLEGE BASKETBALLKentucky uses 3-point barrage to beat BamaBy JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comChaos has ensued in District 3-7A. Columbia followed Thursday nights win over Vanguard with an error-riddled loss, dropping the second game of the series 7-4 at home Friday night. Right down I-75 south, Gainesville bounced back against Middleburg one night after losing on the road. All four teams are now 2-2 in district standings. No team has emerged as the best, but after the Tigers committed five errors that led to five unearned runs, head coach Brian Thomas knows which team isnt. These are four very good baseball teams in this district and right now, Im not so sure who the best team is. After watching tonight, its not us, Thomas said. Weve got a lot of work to do, weve got some soul searching to do. The emotion wasnt there. We came out flat. We had guys showing up late to stretch, guys not getting their jobs done pregame wise and were not good enough to roll balls out and just kind of go through the motions. Columbia (5-2, 2-2) had more errors than hits, only tallying three off Vanguard starting pitcher McKeon Dean. Behind a nasty curveball, Dean struck out nine Tigers before leaving with one out in the seventh due to pitch count. The Knights did their damage early against Tigers starter Cal Gilliam, scoring six runs through the games first four innings. Gilliam gave up six hits and four walks in five innings of work, leaving after the fifth with his team down 7-0. I wasnt controlling early and I couldnt throw the curveball or changeup for a strike consistently, Gilliam said. The errors bugged me but thats part of the game. You have to deal with it. Ryley Rozar went 2-for-5 on the night with two RBI to lead Vanguard (4-4, 2-2). He also scored twice, including in the first inning when Gilliams throw with two outs sailed over the head of first baseman Caleb Strickland to allow Rozar to come in for a 1-0 lead. Gilliam walked two batters with one out in the second and looked to have out number two when Brian Long rolled a grounder to second baseman Mikah Gustavson. But Gustavson couldnt field it cleanly, allowing Abel Bailey to score from third. Rozar immediately followed with an RBI groundout to put the Knights up 3-0. We got down quick, which were not accustomed to doing, and then all of a sudden were down three runs and you could see the hands tightening up on the bats and the swings getting longer, Thomas said. You know, I got to do something great, and no you dont, just get on base. Then well play around with them and get back in the ball game. Instead, the Tigers never did. Andrew Traviseo put Vanguard up 4-0 with a two-out RBI double and then three more Columbia errors in three straight at-bats resulted in two more runs.

Conners, the Canadian rookie in only his 17th start on the PGA Tour as a pro, saved par from the bunker on the par-3 17th and kept his cool when his ball moved slightly on the 18th green no longer a penalty in those circumstances before he tapped in for par. He was at 9-under 204 and will play with Justin Rose (66), who joined Woods and Snedeker at one shot behind. For the second straight day, Woods and his thousands upon thousands of fans will be ahead of him. Woods dropped only one shot and finished with four straight pars in his round of 67. It was his fifth straight round at par or better, his longest stretch in the same season since September 2013.Keselowski overcomes penalty to win Xfinity raceAVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) Brad Keselowski overcame an early pit-road speeding penalty Saturday to win the rain-delayed NASCAR Xfinity Series at ISM Raceway. Keselowski took the lead off a pit stop with 32 laps left and held off Justin Allgaier in the race that was delayed two hours because of light rain at the mile oval southwest of Phoenix. Keselowski was caught speeding in the Team Penskes No. 22 Ford during the caution period following a rain delay of 1 hour, 35 minutes. The 200-lap race was delayed again for 25 minutes just before the end of the first 45-lap segment. Sent to back of the lead lap after the penalty, Keselowski worked his way through the field and took the lead from Christopher Bell after they emerged from the pits side-by-side after their final stops. 2B S UNDAY, MARCH 11, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER SCOREBOARD From staff reportsTwenty-five players competed in the Saturday Blitz on Feb. 24.

From staff reportsBob and Shelly Stowe of Jupiter, knew plenty about freshwater fishing from their years living in Michigan, but when it came to saltwater fishing, they werent quite sure where to start. Thats when they found out about a local Family Saltwater Fishing Clinic being hosted by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). We had no experience with saltwater fishing, said Shelly Stowe. That class was so complete. It was A++. I learned how to set up a pole, how to unhook a fish from the line, how to cast correctly and how to bait a hook. Every single person involved in teaching that class was so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable that if they had it again, wed take it again. The FWC hosts fishing clinics for everybody. For years weve hosted kids and womens fishing clinics across the state, and in 2017, we added adult saltwater fishing clinics. These free, one-day educational events are for anyone 18 and older, male or female. After all, who doesnt want to learn how to saltwater fish? Participants learn everything they need to know to fish on their own while conserving Floridas marine resources, from knot tying and fishing tackle to conservation efforts and marine habitats. Need one-on-one attention? Clinic class sizes are kept small in an effort to implement a structured hands-on approach. Local professionals also participate, providing local knowledge -a resource every angler needs. At the end of the day, youll also get to try catchand-release fishing firsthand. Bring your own gear or FWC will provide some for the day. And dont forget your recreational saltwater fishing license (unless you are exempt that is). We absolutely loved it, said Bob Stowe, who went out fishing with his wife the very next day after the clinic. Id recommend it to anybody who wants to learn. They did a top-notch job. So far, the pair have caught and released quite a few catfish and snapper, and even some pompano. Want to find a fishing clinic near you? Visit our MyFWC. com Calendar for upcoming dates and locations. You can also learn more at MyFWC. com/Education by clicking on Outdoor Skills. For women and adult saltwater fishing clinics, youll need to register in advance, either on the calendar, or by calling the Division of Marine Fisheries Management Outreach and Education subsection at 850-487-0554 or emailing Heather.Sneed@ MyFWC.com. S UNDAY, MARCH 11, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER 3B OUTDOORSThe keys to success for Turkey SeasonBy MONTY STEPHENSSpecial to the ReporterSpring turkey season in our area opens March 17. I always thought hunting turkeys was too technical for me. A hunter had to know how to find turkeys, how to call them and when to call them. Oh yes, hunting turkeys is about all of that. Lets make this as easy as we can and break down the factors that can lead to a successful hunt. To get these answers, I needed to find someone that has hunted turkeys for years and years, and done so successfully in several different states. For these reasons, I called upon Judge Tom Coleman. Judge Coleman has four to five Turkey Grand Slams, has hunted in many different states and has taken a turkey (or two) every year since 1997. Despite all of this, he denies being an expert. No longer does he just want to bag a turkey. No, he wants a turkey with an 11.5-inch beard or better. So my family thinks Im quite the hunter. At least they know I hunt a lot (I do, cant hide that.) But to my credit, I have bagged a turkey every year since 2012. But Ive only hunted in Florida. Gosh, I didnt even know people measured the beards. And I should mention, I started hunting turkeys after I got advice from Judge Tom Coleman. Ok, hes the man. Well use his advice. Judge Coleman shared, for starters, that there are no tips that can be hierarchically listed. Any element of a hunt done incorrectly can mess it up. Judge Coleman told me the TV show hunts can show you how to do it. They have great callers, use decoys, and show shot placement. The TV hunters may be hunting on a private ranch with a large population of turkeys, but nonetheless they must get the basics right. High game fences wont keep a turkey where he doesnt want to be, because they can fly. We should start at the beginning though, because before a successful sportsman or sportswoman can bag a turkey, they must find the turkey. Judge Coleman strongly advises pre-season scouting. The term pre-season scouting seems self-explanatory, but not really. For one thing, when scouting pre-season scouting, one must start the day early. Its important to be there when the turkeys are getting off of the roost. This is because they typically roost in the same trees. So if you know where they are at daybreak one day before the opening day, then its a safe assumption theyll be in the same area on opening day. Also, were using the phrase locating turkeys like everyone knows what that means. In case you dont, what we are referring to is when we quietly enter an area where turkeys may be present and blow a crow call or an owl call. This is done usually before sun rise. A gobbler on the roost will usually gobble back. When you hear the gobble, STOP and quietly leave. You now know where a gobbler turkey is located. Judge Coleman advises locating 3-4 turkeys before calling it a day. We need to locate several turkeys because on opening day, having a backup plan is good. Calls are usually divided into three categories: slate striker calls, box calls and diaphragm calls. Slate calls use a striker to scratch out hen notes. A box call is the easiest to use. The lid of the call is used to stroke out the hen yelp, along with purrs and clucks. The diaphragm call is the most difficult to use. The diaphragm call will reproduce the hen yelp, clucks, purrs and putts. It requires the call to be placed in the mouth. This call is considered hands free. Mastery of a diaphragm call is considered as the epitome of turkey calling. When choosing a shotgun (turkeys are best hunted with a shotgun), choose either a 12 gauge or 20 gauge. A 16 gauge also fits in this group quite well. Use turkey loads or number four shot up to number six shot. For shot placement, a head shot is way preferable to a body shot. Safe the tail feathers, beard and spurs for mounting later. Good hunting. COURTESYJudge Tom Coleman is pictured with an impressive gobbler harvested last year. Fishing clinics are for everyone
4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, MARCH 11, 2018 UF baseball walks off with sweep of RIGAINESVILLE Florida freshman Jordan Butlers walkoff single in the bottom of the ninth inning gave the Gators a 3-2 win over Rhode Island to sweep the weekend series against the Rams. With two outs, Butler got the call to pinch hit with runners on second and third. Butler pulled an inside fastball to the right side and Deacon Liput sprinted home from third to walk off with a win. Florida came to bat in the ninth trailing by a run but the veteran Gators came through. Jonathan India led off with a double and Deacon Liput followed with a RBI single to tie the game at 2-2. The Gators won the first game of the doubleheader 9-2. Tyler Dyson pitched 6.1 innings with one unearned run allowed. India, Austin Langworthy and JJ Schwarz each had a pair of RBI in the game.UF softball rallies on walk off vs. KentuckyGAINESVILLE The sec ond-ranked Florida softball team trailed No. 23 Kentucky for five total innings, but rallied in the seventh to win in walk-off fashion, 3-2, at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium Saturday night. The Gators (21-1, 2-0 SEC) trailed for the longest it has all season, but took advantage of batting last for the first time of the year. Sophia Reynoso led off with a single to right field and advanced into scor ing position after Hannah Adams sent a tapper back to the circle for the initial out. Amanda Lorenz tied up the game, 2-2, with a hard hit single up the middle and Kayli Kvistad drove in the game-winning run with her walk-off RBI single that scored DeWitt from second base to finish off the win over Kentucky (15-5, 0-2).FSU baseball drops both ends of doubleheaderWINSTON-SALEM, N.C. No. 4 Florida State (14-2) dropped both ends of a doubleheader Saturday at Wake Forest (7-9), losing the first game 4-3 on a walk-off home run and the second 8-1 at David F. Couch Ballpark. It was the first ACC series for each team. The Seminoles dropped its first game of the season on a walk-off two-run home run from Wake Forests DJ Poteet in game one. FSUs Rhett Aplin hit an RBI double in the top of the ninth inning to break a 2-2 tie. The loss snapped FSUs season-opening win streak at 14 games, the fourth-longest to open a season in school history. Wake Forest used the momentum from the walk-off win in game one to score six runs off FSU starter Austin Pollock (2-1) and sweep the doubleheader with an 8-1 win in the nightcap. Pollock lasted just 1.1 innings, giving up seven hits and six earned runs in his first road start as a Seminole.FSU softball sweeps UNF, Alameda wins 600thJACKSONVILLE In her 10th season at Florida State and 15th as a head coach in Division I softball, Lonni Alameda earned win No. 600 on Saturday as No. 15 Florida State (18-6) earned a pair of wins over North Florida (1311) in a doubleheader at the UNF Softball Complex. The Seminoles shutout the Ospreys 13-0 in game one, before earning a 9-6 victory in game two. Alameda is now 600-302-2 in her head coaching career, including a 443-144-1 mark at the helm of Florida State. She is averaging 48 wins per year at FSU and has been named the ACC Coach of the Year in each of the last five seasons. I love what I do, said Alameda. Thats what makes this easy to pour my life into every day. Working with a great staff and so many amazing student-athletes makes it fun and so enjoyable to compete every season and grow the game. I dont really track these things and didnt really know this was coming up, but this is more of an accomplishment for the players on the field. Today, we were scrap py and competitive in both games and worked through some challenging situations. Looking forward to a little break before ACCs start next weekend.ROUNDUPBOYS WEIGHTLIFTINGIndians finish fourth at districts CHRISTINA FEAGIN/Special to the ReporterCorey Dryden (left) and Jacquez Pelham (right) perform the clean and jerk during Fridays District 5-1A meet at Suwannee High School. Fort Whites weightlifting team placed fourth at the meet. The Indians were led by three second-place finishers in Stanley Maxwell (183pound weight class), Marc Conners (199) and Pelham (238). Six other Indians advanced to the Region 3-1A meet on Mar. 24 at Baker County, including Kannell Stewart (139), Josh Swayze (154), Samuel Aymond (154), Mason Manning (183), Williams McLaughlin (219) and Dryden (199). second-seeded Tennessee on Sunday in the championship game. Kentucky shot 64 percent from the field, up from its 42.6 percent clip against Georgia on Friday and its season average of 46.5. The Wildcats dominated on the defensive end as well, using its unmatched length to body up ninth-seeded Alabama (19-15) all game. Sexton, who beat Texas A&M with a last-second shot on Thursday and then led a second-half charge to beat Auburn on Friday, scored 21 points on 6-for14 shooting. John Petty added 18 points on 6-for-11 shooting. It did take a little toll on us, three games backto-back versus three great teams, Petty said. The Tide simply couldnt stop the Wildcats, especially from long range. Kentucky shot 12 of 18 on 3s and compiled 20 assists. Its probably not sustainable, but let me say this: The people that have watched this, do we rely on 3-point shots to win? coach John Calipari asked. We dont. If we make wow, we made 12, then were probably going to win by 20. in a mob on Columbias weight pad by all his teammates. That 670 total was also the most at the meet. On 300 I didnt quite get my grip wide enough coming back up on clean so it messed up my jerk, MacDonald said. I knew I could get it, it was just wrong on my grip, so I knew I could get 310. It was an emotional moment for MacDonald as teammates and coaches swarmed him when he finished. His 670 total helped Columbia finish in second place with 50 points, 21 behind champion Lincoln. Whenever a guy is going for their personal-best and one of the highest in the meet, they all get around and start cheering and getting hyped. Its nice, MacDonald said. Along with MacDonald, Ayden Masters (169) and Kaden Jones (183) also won district titles. All 11 of the Tigers lifters finished in the top six in their respective weight classes to advance to the Region 2-2A meet on Mar. 21, which will be right back at Columbia. Columbia just edged Gainesville, which finished in third with 46 points. Five lifters took home district championships for Lincoln to create enough distance for the title. It was the first time in Brian Allens seven-year tenure as head coach that the Tigers didnt take home the district crown. For me looking at Lincoln, (Quinn) Gray stepped in last year as the head guy and obviously weightlifting has become an emphasis of importance over there, Allen said. They came out today and I dont think Lincoln has ever beaten us in weightlifting but they did today. Its a little bit of a blow but knowing we were young this year, the biggest thing is some guys that would have been lifting today didnt because of injuries or different things. Every now and then you have a year that you have to regroup, redevelop and that next year is usually right back where you were. Masters benched 285 pounds on his second attempt and then missed 290 on his third. But he came back and nailed all three of his clean and jerks, finishing with a 245 best for a 530 total. That was enough to win the district title, 20 pounds more than Lincolns David McRoy. Masters 245 clean and jerk tied a personal-record he set last week, a huge improvement from the beginning of the season he could only put up 185 pounds. I really didnt think Id take first place. I figured Id place but not first, Masters said. There were no surprises for Jones, who won his weight class by an astounding 105 pounds. He benched 370 pounds and finished with a 655 total after a clean and jerk of 285 pounds, despite missing his final two attempts of 300 and 305. Jones 655 total was only topped by MacDonald on the afternoon. Thats not what I wanted. I want to keep improving each week. I got 670 last week and 655 was not what I wanted but Ill get back in the weight room and work on my technique. Ill go back at it at regionals. UK Continued From 1BCOLLEGE BASKETBALLHot-shooting sends Tennessee to SEC finalBy KURT VOIGTAssociated PressST. LOUIS Admiral Schofield insists Tennessees play in the Southeastern Conference Tournament isnt about validating the schools remarkable and surprising regular season. Rather, trying to win the Volunteers first tournament championship in almost 40 years is always where the Tennessee junior expected to be even when the Rocky Top faithful were disappointed by a preseason pick of 13th in the SEC. Tennessee will have that chance at its first conference tournament title since 1979, courtesy of an 84-66 win over Arkansas in the semifinals on Saturday. The No. 13 Volunteers (25-7) showed off for all the SEC to see against the sixth-seeded Razorbacks, putting on a shooting exhibition in the first half and setting up a third meeting this season with Kentucky in Sundays championship game. We just have a standard were trying to play toward, Schofield said. The biggest thing is we try to go out to every game with that mindset, like were trying to perfect our standard. We havent done that yet, so were still a hungry team. We still want more. Tennessee shared the SECs regular-season title with No. 16 Auburn, doing so after being picked to finish next to last in the league during the preseason. The Volunteers won their opening tournament game over Mississippi State, and they continued their recent hot streak against sixth-seeded Arkansas (23-11) winning their sixth straight and for the 13th time in their last 15 games. Jordan Bone set the tone for Tennessees first-half shooting exhibition and finished with 19 points. The sophomore scored 17 of his points in the first half, during which the Volunteers hit 11 of their first 12 shots and 19 of 25 (76 percent) overall while building a 48-29 halftime lead. Schofield added 16 points for Tennessee, while Grant Williams, Kyle Alexander and James Daniel III finished with 12 points apiece. But it was Bone who left the weary Razorbacks search for answers in the first half, hitting 7 of 7 from the field and all of his 3-point attempts. He finished 8 of 11 from the field and his three 3-pointers were a part of an overall 11-of-17 shooting effort from behind the arc for the Volunteers. First half, we arguably played the best basketball we have all year, Tennessee coach Rick Barnes said. Jordan Bone was terrific, and the team feeds off him when hes out there playing with the speed and quickness that he has. Daryl Macon scored 19 points to lead the sixth-seeded Razorbacks, who had won eight of their previous 10 games. Jaylen Barford added 14, and Anton Beard and Darious Hall had 11 each in the loss. Arkansas closed to within nine points early in the second half, but it was unable to climb all the way back from Tennessees first-half barrage. TIGERS Continued From 1BJORDAN KROEGER/Lake City ReporterPeyton MacDonald (from left), Kaden Jones and Ayden Masters all won district titles for the Tigers.

6B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, MARCH 11, 2018 TM Save the Date FOR THE dropped pop up by third baseman Tate Worrell and a collision in shallow right field between Gustavson and right fielder Cole Frier. Both players left the game as a result of the play. Rozars RBI single in the fifth pushed Vanguards lead to 7-0. It was a bad game from start to finish as far as physical play. Weve got to be able to catch a fly ball, Thomas said. I dont care where the ball is, you have to be able to catch a baseball. If you cant catch a baseball youre giving more opportunities to a team thats not bad. Theyre a pretty good baseball team. Caleb Strickland, who had two of his teams three hits, delivered a two-RBI single in the bottom half of the fifth with the bases loaded to finally get Columbia on the scoreboard. But that burst of life was short-lived as Worrell was thrown out at third base on the play to end the frame on a very questionable call, as it looked like he was safe. Sammy Walker scored on a bases-loaded walk in the seventh and Clayton Steinruck raced home for the final run on a passed ball with Keibert Medina on the mound in relief. Dylan Blair then represented the tying run at the plate, but he grounded out to second to end the game. Were not hitting well right now. Were a good hitting ball team thats not hitting well and thats a little bit surprising considering where we were at the beginning of the year, Thomas said. Typically the arms are ahead of the bats and we were the complete opposite. Were pressing a little bit, having guys that are taking swings that are not conducive to what theyre seeing.CHS loses to Belleview on SaturdayColumbias rally came up short again on Saturday, losing to Belleview 4-3 on the road. The Rattlers jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the second inning against Tigers starting pitcher Daveion Love, who pitched five innings and struck out six. He walked four and gave up four hits but only one earned run, as one error in the second inning led to three unearned. Columbia scored three runs in the fourth on a 2-RBI double by Dylan Blair and an RBI single by Lance Minson.

Passersby and commuters traveling U.S. Highway 90 have likely seen auction banners and signs sitting in the yard of a historic home at 768 W. Duval St. The residence-turned-business that dates back to the early 20th century will go up for auction on-site to the highest bidder March 21 through Campen Auctions of Gainesville. The current owner of the property, Larry Wurn, said he purchased the home along with two nearby properties in the mid1990s and at that time had a physical therapy office located across the street. I just thought it was beautiful, said Wurn, president and CEO of Gainesville-based Clear Passage Physical Therapy and Physiotherapy. But with no practical use for the space, he said he rented the property out to businesses.

Uniqueness: If a companys offerings are seen as unique, that can help them retain pricing power. Brands matter less for things seen as commodities, too. Its ideal when customers have few alternatives to turn to. Inside information: Some companies may have information that rivals dont. If a company has been operating profitably in another country, for example, it has an edge over other companies that might want to launch a business there. Intellectual property: If a company has many patents and proprietary technology, that can be very valuable. Scope: If a company offers a wide variety of products or services, its one-stop-shop nature can attract customers who wont have to visit multiple venues. Target and similar chains, for example, offer everything from furniture to fruit. Network effect: Companies with big networks can be powerful. Think of eBay, for example, which attracts sellers with how many buyers it has and vice versa.Senior Real EstateIf youre interested in investing in real estate without taking title of any property, consider a real estate investment trust (REIT), a dividend-paying company that owns or finances income-producing properties. A particularly promising one is Ventas (NYSE: VTR). One of the largest health care property owners in the United States, Ventas boasts more than 1,200 properties, the majority of which are senior housing. Medical offices, post-acute care properties, life science facilities and health system real estate make up the rest. Wall Street is putting pressure on Ventas shares because rising interest rates mean more competition for investor dollars for high-yield investments such as REITs. (Ventas shares recently sported an appealing dividend yield of 5.8 percent.) But the trends driving this REITs future havent changed. For example, 10,000 baby boomers are turning Medicare-eligible daily, the 75-plus age group is the fastest-growing age demographic, and those 65 and older spend five times more on health care than younger age groups do. All of this spells huge demand for health care in the years ahead and for the property needed to administer all that care. In addition, the existing health care real estate market is more than $1 trillion in size and is less than 15 percent REIT-owned, reflecting lots of opportunity for consolidation and further acquisitions for Ventas. Long-term dividend-seeking investors should give this stock serious consideration. rffBad Drug ReactionI was convinced that Cara Therapeutics had a winning drug. Oops! It crashed, and I got out after losing around 50 percent. Ill stay away from pharmaceuticals going forward. D.M., online The Fool Responds: Youve been hasty in several ways. First, dont dismiss an entire industry because of a bad experience with one stock. Given our countrys growing and aging population and the demand for drugs to cure or treat more conditions, the pharmaceutical industrys future seems solid. You werent necessarily wrong to invest in Cara Therapeutics, either. Many investors have been bullish on Cara, largely over the potential for its CR845 drug in development, which targets chronic pain. In February 2016, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) put a clinical hold on a late-stage clinical trial of CR845, sending the stock down, but the hold was lifted a few months later. Any investor in biotechnology companies should have a good understanding of the industry and, ideally, the science involved. Setbacks are to be expected as promising drugs go through the usual series of clinical trials. Only a fraction of contenders pass all trials and end up approved by the FDA. Thus, investors often prefer to focus on biotech companies with deep pipelines featuring many drugs, ideally with a bunch in late-stage trials. Cara may end up a long-term winner, but its not without risks. Dividends or No Dividends?QWhy do some companies pay no dividends? Are they worth investing in? P.T., Elyria, OhioAThey can be. A company can use its earnings to reinvest in its business, pay down debt, buy back shares (reducing their number and making remaining shares more valuable) and/ or pay shareholders a dividend, among other options.Some companies, typically smaller, younger or faster-growing ones, often need to spend any earnings on growth. Amazon.com and Facebook, for example, pay no dividend, while Starbucks only started paying one in 2010. Clearly, many great companies have been or are without dividends. Still, companies that pay dividends are worth including in your portfolio because they offer a relatively reliable income that tends to increase over time as long as the underlying companies remain healthy. Struggling companies may reduce or eliminate their payouts. Strong, growing companies offering little or no dividend can still reward you well, through the increases in their stock prices.

J.J., Manteo, North CarolinaAI bonds feature interest rates that are tied to inflation. Their interest rates have two components: a fixed rate that lasts for 30 years and an inflation rate that changes every May 1 and Nov. 1. The latest I bond rate is 2.58 percent, through April. If youre looking for bond income and you expect inflation to rise in the future, I bonds can help you keep up with it. I bond rates have been as high as 7.5 percent and as low as zero, with a median rate near 3.4 percent.Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to email@example.comCompetitive Advantages 101When seeking long-term wealth builders for your portfolio, look for companies with sustainable competitive advantages such as these: Strong brand: A brand name associated with high quality, for example, will attract customers more easily than a lesser-known brand. Switching costs: Its great when its hard for customers to switch to a different company. For example, once a customer has an iPhone, iPad and a Mac, the idea of switching out of the Apple ecosystem is daunting. Low production costs: Companies that can deliver their products or services for a lower cost have an edge and can be more profitable. They may be so large that they enjoy economies of scale, or perhaps they are based in a region with a low cost of labor. Bargaining power: Another edge is if a company has power over its suppliers or its buyers. Huge retailers such as Wal-Mart can be very demanding of suppliers, for 2018 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

Dont buy insurance plans you can fund yourselfDear Dave, Some of the people I work with have been buying into a new kind of supplemental insurance that protects against layoffs. It costs about $30 a month per person, and the full payout if youre laid off is $9,000. It seems to me you would have to be paying in for a long time to see that kind of return, so I wanted to see how you feel about this kind of thing. Steve Dear Steve, Anytime insurance is there for something you could cover yourself, its a good idea to stop and remember that every insurance company is still a business. They must cover all the costs of operation, plus make a profit. Believe me, that takes a lot of money. Statistically speaking, if lots of people cashed in on a policy like this an insurance company would go out of business. W ere talking about only $30 a month to cover $9,000. That alone tells you not many people cash in. Its gimmick insurance. On average, youre losing money when you buy insurance of any kind. Again, on average, over the scope of your lifetime youd be better off simply saving money and self-insuring against things like this. The only things I recommend buying insurance for are things you cant afford to cover personally. But you can afford to cover a layoff by saving an emergency fund of three to six months of expenses. If Im in your shoes, Steve, Im not buying that stuff. Dave Dear Dave, I just filed taxes, and it looks like Ill get a pr etty big refund this year. A friend of mine told me I should adjust my withholding, so I dont get a refund. This seems pretty dumb to me. Why would I change my withholdings when Im getting money back? James Dear James, The only reason youre getting a refund is because you had too much taken out of your paychecks in 2017. Lets say your refund is $3,500. Basically, you loaned the government $3,500 of your own money, interest-free. A refund isnt a gift or reward, James. Its your own cash that you get back because you paid in too much during the previous year. In your case, that adds up to almost $300 a month! Instead of loaning the government money that you worked hard to earn, wouldnt it be a better idea to keep it? Dave Dave Ramsey is Americas trusted voice on money and business, and CEO of Ramsey Solutions. He has authored best-selling books and hosts The Dave Ramsey Show. Dave RamseyCEO of Ramsey SolutionsDAVE SAYS Hiring surge adds 313K jobs, most in 1 yearsU.S. employers went on a hiring binge in February, adding 313,000 jobs, the most in any month since July 2016, and drawing hundreds of thousands of people into the job market. At the same time, average wages rose 2.6 percent over the past 12 months, a slowdown from Januarys accelerat ed pace, which had spooked investors because it raised fears of high inflation. Fridays jobs report from the government revised down Januarys year-over-year wage gain by one-tenth of a point to 2.8 percent. An influx of new job seekers in February kept the unemployment rate unchanged at a low 4.1 percent. Februarys hiring surge points to a U.S. job market that remains robust.Associated Press From staff reportsIn a move to support local efforts in his home Bay County, U.S. Rep. Neal Dunn, who represents portions of Columbia County, has urged Department of Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to block the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's proposal to list the Panama City crayfish as threatened on the List of Threatened and Endangered Wildlife under the Endangered Species Act of 1973. Currently, the Panama City crayfish is protect ed as a State Species of Special Concern by Floridas Endangered and Threatened Species Rule. Dunn wrote a letter in opposition to the proposed listing for inclusion in the public comments that USFWS has solicited. Working under threat of further litigation, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service hastily proposed a rule that erroneously used survey data on the presence of crayfish at a particular location as a substitute for scientific assessment of population size, Dunn wrote. Among other deficiencies in the USFWS review for the species and proposed rule, the misuse of available data resulted in an inaccurate assessment of population size In accordance with a 2011 legal settlement, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service was required to produce a listing determination for the Panama City crayfish by Dec. 29, 2017. USFWS is on-schedule to officially list the species by January 2019. I also encourage you to consider more closely the conservation measures Florida has diligently undertaken with regard to the Panama City crayfish, and allow continued management of the species by Floridians under their successful regime rather than by the Federal Government under its failed Endangered Species Act, Dunn added. Local leaders have expressed concerns about the consequences of this proposed listing on economic development in Bay County. It is also difficult to properly identify the Panama City crayfish because it is one of 11 species of crayfish found in the area. Dunn will continue to fight to defund the USFWS listing in the Fiscal Year 2019 Department of the Interior funding bill.Dunn fights to keep crayfish conservation a local effort Dunn Every sport.

W EEK OF SUNDAY, MARCH 1117, 2018 BUSINESS LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER 3C ARNP-C 1140 SW Bascom Norris Dr., Suite 104 Lake City, FL 32025 386-719-6500 www.MagnoliaPeds.com Most Insurance Accepted all of which Wurn rented. Now that he is nearing 70 he said he no longer has time to manage the properties, which take up roughly a block of downtown Lake City from West Duval to McFarlane Avenue. Wurn said he anticipat ed the properties would be bought together at auction and quipped, Its nice to own a whole city block. The homes historic background, tied to John Paul, is one of Wurns main selling points, but there is some debate surrounding the topic. A brief history of the Paul legacy was outlined by Rick Paul, a descen dant of the historical fig ure John Paul, who was described as a fr eewheeling late-19th century saw mill tycoon whose industry pervaded the area in the 1890s. Rick Paul said his distant grandfather made his way to America from Europe, growing up penniless in Scotland, and later capi talized on what amounted then to a mechanical engi neering degree. Running sawmills and working on steam loco motives, the height of Industrial Revolution-era technology, he said John Paul settled in the Midwest and then started buying instead of running. A hundred twenty years ago he was doing things now mega corporation are doing, Rick Paul said. They were extremely wealthy back in the day. He set up operations in Watertown, soon turn ing the surrounding area into a veritable company town with its own bank that minted currency, Paul said. It was all due to the luscious timber that predomi nated the area. W urn said John Paul essentially owned the majority of what is now known as the Osceola Forest. This is incredible, hes like a Gatsby, he had like the largest lumber operation on the Mississ ippi up in Missouri, Wurn said. T here is a question regarding which Paul actually owned and occupied the home soon to go up for auction, though. Rick Paul said his ances tor, the wealthy sawmill bar on John Paul, died in 1909 after leaving the area for the West Coast. Wurn said he gathered information about the homes history from a local historian. The confusion seemed to arise from the account of the story Wurn was told, which Rick Paul said incorrectly stated that the wealthy industrialist was named AG Paul when it was actually his father, John Paul. Rick Paul said his dis tant grandfather died in 1909 and could not have purchased and lived in the home in 1919 as stated in Wurns account. His son AG Paul, howev er, did return to purchase the home in the following years, he said.

Upon returning, it wasnt long before she was invit ed to participate in Food Network and Cooking Channels South Beach Wine & Food Festival in Miami Beach. Goss traveled to Miami Beach as a member of Operation BBQ Reliefs team, as they competed in a fan-favorite barbecue com petition hosted by Iron Chef Michael Symon. With experi ence in the transportation hospi tality industry, Goss now enjoys traveling and particularly likes showcasing exquisite food design through her culinary expertise and business. At Bullseye Event Group, The Players Tailgate, an annual SuperBowl party, Goss was a par t of the six person leadership team, responsible for 26 culinary intern students, 2,500 guests and a number of celebrity chefs and restaurateurs. Working Thursday morning through midday Sunday, Goss assisted in preparing an extensive menu of: kimchi korean fried chicken sliders; Wagyu beef sliders with truffle sauce; an elaborate brunch bar; fresh hot doughnuts and dessert bar; northern smoked fish and duck with roasted vegetables; authen tic middle eastern cuisine; a BBQ buf fet, including two 150-pound whole hogs; and fresh seafood, including king crab, snow crab legs, oysters on the half shell, sushi, sashimi, poke and shrimp galore. No guest left hungry. TV chef Guy Fieri was pleased and impressed with the food quality and taste, the set-up displays and the chef team, giving pr ops to the leadership group and high fives all around. You all made my recipes come to life, Fieri was reported as saying. Goss was directly responsi ble for several of Fieris signa ture dishes, and managed Brian Malarkeys food pr eparation. The group responsible for the barbecue station was Operation BBQ Relief. Their offerings of beef, pork, turkey, sides and whole hogs was immense. Because of the work of Goss, alongside the OBR team at The Players Tailgate, she was invited to participate in the South Beach Wine & Food Festival. OBR was offered a booth at SOBE due to their impact with disaster victims and first responders. Since May 2011, 6,513 vol unteers have spent 248 days deployed, serving 44 communi ties in 24 states, serving 1,751,692 meals. Most recently the group served in Santa Rosa County, California, Southwest Florida and the Keys, and Houston after disasters devastated the areas.

The event is rejuvenated by the Columbia County Builders Association and co-sponsored by the Lake City Reporter and Currents magazine. We are super excit ed about this event, said Bryan Zecher, president of the Columbia County Builders Association. Home building is back! The timing is right to have a showcase event for the builders. This event will be great for the community to come out and see what is available and what is new out there. The Parade of Homes at one time was an annual event, but during the economic downturn, the event went away for a decade. The last Parade of Homes event was held in Columbia County in 2008. We are very excited to work with the Lake City Reporter as our partner again in this Parade of Homes event, Zecher said. We know the Reporter is the organization that reaches our community and can best help us advertise this event. Lake City Reporter Publisher Todd Wilson said it was exciting to see the Parade of Homes event re-introduced to the community at such an important time. Our local economy continues to grow, as does our community and its very encouraging to see local home building on the rise, Wilson said. We are honored to be selected to again partner with the CCBA to bring our community another outstanding Parade of Homes. In the coming weeks, you will see our team of marketing professionals preview and promote this event in the best way possible through several of our media channels, including print, digital and social media, as we continue to lead the way in our community. Weve already had several sponsors step up who will be saluted soon and we still have room for other businesses who want to be a part of this high-exposure event. We expect this to be one of the most anticipated and well-attended Parade of Homes in Lake City history. New-home building has started the 2018 year at a record clip. Permits for newhome construction have totaled 50 permits pulled in Columbia County from Dec. 1 through Feb. 28, Zecher said. By comparison, in the entire year of 2012, there were only 55 permits pulled during the entire 12-month period. Zecher, who is president of Bryan Zecher Construction, said he expects between 15-20 new homes to be openhouse ready for the Parade of Homes weekend April 28-29. People who come out to this Parade of Homes event and tour these new homes will see more open floor plans than they did 10 years ago, Zecher said. Kitchen and bathroom styles have changed, as well, and there are a lot of overall new floor plans to see. Plus, houses today are a lot more energy efficient than they were a decade ago. Windows, doors, insulation, hot water heaters and appliances, they are all a lot different than what people saw if they have not looked at new houses since our last Parade of Homes 10 years ago. The houses that will be displayed by Columbia County builders will be of varying sizes built on different lot acreages. We will have a good variety of floor plans and square footages for people to see, Zecher said, adding that builders need to get involved with the CCBA and also sign up for this event. Being involved with CCBA gives a builder a lot more exposure and with an event like this, with the marketing we will have, everyone in the community will know about this Parade of Homes. It gives us an opportunity to showcase our products to the community as a group. When people come out to this event, they can meet with the builder and they can see other floor plans he has they may like better. Also, being involved with CCBA, there is strength in numbers in our industry locally. The local CCBA provides an avenue to search local builders who are licensed and insured and this is very important in this day and time.

Contact Editor Robert Bridges754firstname.lastname@example.org Heads or Tales,RESTAURANT IS SPOT ONIn 1999, Phil, Toni and James Crenshaw were living in New Port Richey and came to visit friends who worked at Ichetucknee Springs State Park. They loved the area, and when they spotted a small restaurant for sale in Lake City, moving here became a reality. Six weeks later they moved in, cleaned up the place and opened on James 13th birthday, Aug. 23, 1999. Although small, seating 45, it quickly caught on with Lake City seafood lovers. Two years later they bought the building next door and expanded seating to 170 with an expanded bar ar ea. Their goal was to relate the menu and atmosphere to our local culture and outdoor scene. Phil and Toni have been in the food industry most of their lives. Tonis dad owned Tonys Steak House in Lanse, Michigan, and Phil grew up working in various Jacksonville and New Por t Richey restaurants. After James graduated from college, he came back to join them in Lake City. These three make an awesome team. When Phish Tales is open, one of them will be there, always checking to make sure you have everything you need. The menu has been revised over the years based on their creativity and the customers likes. The use of Ph in all words that start with F has numerous explanations, including Philip picked something gross to aggravate everyone to a yarn about a talking phish. Whatever it was, Phabulous Phood, Phunny Name has worked for the Cr enshaws. James says the most popular food item is the chicken wings served with celery, ranch or blue cheese, and you choose from either hot, medium, mild, nuke, garlic, sweet heat or Asian Fire. Ten pieces are $9.95, 16 pieces $14.95, 25 pieces $23.95 and 50 pieces $47.95. I agree these are some of the best wings ever and they have been voted Lake Citys Best of the Best Wings. The next most popular dish is the phish tacos. You wont leave hungry after these delicious phishes. You get three cornmeal cr usted Swai fillets with jalapeo corn relish, chipotle aioli and shredded lettuce piled onto a war m corn tortilla ($9.95). The third most popular dish is the 9-ounce top sirloin ($12.99) and it includes choice of potato, rice, cheese grits or veggie, house salad, Caesar salad. Every day youll find a daily special at lunch and dinner. Items like meatloaf with mashed potatoes, AUCE Catphish, slow-roasted prime rib, country fried steak, my favorite Taco Tuesday Tex Mex choices of chimichangas, fajitas, quesadillas or nachos, and the deliciousness goes on and on. The Small Bites menu has some of my favorites. Lacey and Monica see me coming in the door and they know I want my halfpound peel and eat shrimp ser ved hot with Old Bay seasoning with tartar and cocktail sauce on the side accompanied by lemon and Captains Wafers. The reason I like these so much is that there are very few places you can get this dish that isnt frozen, shriveled up, tasteless shrimp. Even if I get them at Publix and they steam them with Old Bay, they are still not like the plump and delicious ones here. Sometimes I get the pound so that I can take home leftovers and make another meal with them. Im pretty much addicted to them. Other Small Bites that are all delicious are conch fritters, corn nuggets ($5.50), cheese sticks ($6.50), fried pickles ($6.50), crispy alligator bites (market price), jalapeo poppers ($6.95), mahi-mahi bites (market price), baked crab dip ($10.95), etc. How about mixed seafood grill skewers for $9.95, which is catphish, mahi-mahi and shrimp grilled to per fection brushed with bourbon BBQ sauce and ser ved on a bed of crispy onion straws, then drizzled with ranch? Im going to try this on my next visit. My Small Bites favorites now are the conch fritters and Kimberlynne loves the cheese sticks and corn nuggets. There are a number of baskets, all served with fries and slaw. You can choose from clam strips ($9.95), chicken bites ($9.50), Phish Fingers, shrimp, bone-in catphish ($9.50), plus gator bites and mahi bites at market price. Salads include spinach, Caesar, house and club salad, and Kimberlynnes favorite, the Phiesta Chicken Salad served in a tortilla bowl with buffalo chicken bites over shredded lettuce, onions, peppers, pico and cheese ($9.99). Will often chooses the Philly wrap with his choice of beef, chicken or shrimp with onions, peppers and cheese in a tortilla wrap ($9.99). James says the most popular sandwich is the 6-ounce burger made from fresh Black Angus beef and served with buffalo sauce and crumbled blue cheese on a butter toasted bun with lettuce, tomato and crispy onion straws ($11.05). Other favorites are the Greuben ($9.50), the Bobber ($9.50) roast beef on grilled rye with Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle and mayo, or how about a country fried pork chop sandwich ($9.50) and all are served with chips or fries and a pickle spear. The menu just keeps on going, but in addition, they serve a daily special, which is posted when you come in the front door at lunchtime and the special at night is on each table. These are the ones where the chefs imagination takes over with a popular dish, e.g. Charleston style shrimp and grits made with Tasso ham cream sauce, smoked gouda and stone ground grits. In January of this year, Jon Taffer and his crew from the television show Bar Rescue arrived at Phish Heads to film a makeover of the restaurant. He had been in Jacksonville last summer and was checking potential makeovers in the area and called James with the offer. They were here televising from noon on a Thursday till 6 p.m. on Saturday and in 36 hours they changed the floors, the wall dcor, painting, bar-top, lighting and revised the menu. James said that they werent allowed to even drive by during the renovations. The Bar Rescue show will air sometime this summer. The restaurant name changed during this time to Phish Tales. I love the new name. We all know how those fishermen are always entertaining us with the tales of the one that got away. The bar is a major attraction and is about 30 percent of their business. James has had an interest in craft beer and youll find the 15 draft beers available on tap with choices constantly changing. Halpatter Br ewery is creating a Phish Tales craft beer that will soon be available only at the restaurant. Youll also find interesting bar choices, e.g. Largemouth Punch, Dark & Stormy, Neptunes Bounty, Desert Spice Margarita, Cool Spiced Rum and Fishing Lime Shot. The favorite dessert is the key lime cheesecake made daily by Amy Strickland, bartender. Amy is the former owner of The Cakery and twotime participant on Food Network competitions. James has also appeared on Cutthroat Kitchens. Their award-winning talent helped Phish Tales be chosen the Best Restaurant in the Lake City Repor ters 2017 Best of the Best competition. Watch for new menu items being considered, e.g. new types of salads, adding a taco menu and a craft burger menu. Ill see you there, but please dont ask for one of my shrimp.

If uncertainty sets in, pause and reconsider your options. If you dont like what you see, look for alternate ways to deal with matters. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Not everyone will like what you are doing or saying, but the results you get will help you build a much better future for you and those who count on you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your imagination will take you down an unforgiving path. Dont give in to someone making promises that could separate you from your hard-earned cash. Work toward inner growth and physical improvements. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Ask questions if you want to clear up an issue thats bothering you. Greater concerns will surface if someone becomes hostile or unwilling to offer you legitimate answers. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Someone is likely to withhold information from you. Dont make a decision without getting all the facts first. Relying on someone else to come through for you will lead to disappointment. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Its good to socialize, but dont get roped into paying for something you dont want to do. Spending quality time with a good friend, family member or loved one will be cost-efficient and bring you closer together. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Refuse to play into someones emotional mind games. Get out of the house if it will help you put an end to a situation that is toxic or heading in that direction. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): A day trip will do you good. Reach out to someone you enjoy spending time with and youll come up with a plan that will give you something to look forward to. An opportunity to learn something will come in handy. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Youll face opposition from someone older than you. Dont let anyone railroad you into something you dont want to do or that will stand in the way of you reaching your personal goals. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Look at the broad picture and consider if what you are seeing is worth your while. Dont hesitate to back out of an agreement if things dont wind up being as positive as promised. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Look for signs and listen carefully to what someone tells you. If you plan to lend a helping hand, be sure you understand the dynamics of the situation and the consequences that will unfold if you misjudge or make a mistake. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Take better care of yourself, your dreams and your future. Get the rest you need and dont turn down a chance to enjoy a little pampering. DEAR ABBY: My 92-year-old mother lives alone, still drives and manages by herself with a feral cat she took in. Shes dealing with heart failure, but doing well on her meds. I am 70, an only child, married, retired and live six hours away. We go to see her four times a year and stay for a week in our RV. We talk on the phone once a week and email a couple times in between phone calls. Mom says shes staying in her house as long as she is able. She has nice neighbors who will do anything for her plus a lawn/snow service. We have told her shes welcome to come live with us, but she loves her independence and has the cat to take car e of. She goes to her church group, senior citizens group and gets her nails done ever y three weeks. Shes busier than I am socially. But I feel consumed by guilt that shes so far away and afraid that each visit may be our last. My husband says he isnt moving, and he has his own activities and health issues. He doesnt want to stay with Mom more than a week because we end up watching QVC with her all afternoon. When we left last week, she said, My friends told me I hardly ever see you, and I hope you can come more often. I dont know what to do. Am I doing enough? We pay her taxes and phone/cable/internet and any big bills (car repairs). But Im not there to drop in the way most of her friends children do, who never moved away after high school. GUILT-RIDDEN IN MARYLAND DEAR GUILTRIDDEN: You are doing as much as you can for your mother. Her friends should not judge because their family situations are not the same as yours. You stated that you email her in between phone calls. Ask your mother if she would be open to video chatting (Skype, FaceTime, etc.) in between those phone calls. That way you could see each others faces, and it might help her feel less distant from you. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have only recently recovered financially from the economy crashing. W e lost our car, our home and filed bankruptcy. Thankfully, we now have some savings and no debt other than our new home. It has been 10 years since we had a r eal vacation, so we are planning a cr uise. My problem is I mentioned it to some friends and family members. Four of them have now asked us to bring back souvenirs for them. I feel its pr esumptuous. I dont want to spend my vacation running around buying other people stuff. Am I being overly sensitive or are they being impolite? And how can I politely r efuse? FRUSTRATED IN THE USA DEAR FRUSTRATED: You are not overly sensitive. Tell those folks that your excursion schedule will be tight and you wont have time to do much shopping even for yourselves. Its the truth, Ill bet. P.S. And when you return, be discreet about flashing any souvenirs you pick up for yourselves along the way!

Well-placed windows and skylights can harness energy naturally, so you can minimize your reliance on electricity for comfort and convenience. 5 Ways to Make the Most of Your 5th Wall1. Start with a smooth canvas. This means eliminating any details like popcorn ceilings or other texturing that may appear dated and dingy. 2. Add some color. Bring character to the room by adding color to the ceiling that complements the traditional walls for a cohesive look. If you have eaves, dormers or other architectural elements, consider painting some and leaving others white for variety and added dimension. 3. Introduce natural light. When it comes from above, natural light brightens a room in a whole new way. An option like a Velux skylight is a sensible of ways to customize the and functional needs. 4. Enhance with accessories. Both practical and attractive, blinds are a good idea for a skylight. They let you control the light, such as blocking out harsh rays during the heat of the day but letting the gentle evening light illuminate the room. In addition to choosing a style and color that complements the room decor, also look for features such as remote-control operation and room-darkening textiles. 5. Get creative. Treating your ceiling like a wall opens virtually endless possibilities. Especially if you have some unique architectural features, you can highlight them by adding special touches such as built-in shelves for extra storage or new place to nurture lush house plants.
