James Conrad Hayden III, 22, was pronounced dead by paramedics that arrived to the location of the crash just after 7 a.m. Tuesday in Suwannee County, an SCFR report said. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Hayden was traveling west along County Road 136 near 102 Place when his 2003 Chevy Impala left the road, collided with a tree and overturned. The incident time was reported as 3:45 a.m. and report details said it was unknown if he was wearing a safety belt. Sheriff talks jail project at clubBy COREY ARWOODSheriff Mark Hunter spoke to Lake City Kiwanians about at the need for new detention facilities to replace what he described as a decrepit, decaying and altogether falling apart county jail. He spoke to the civic club at their regular weekly meeting Tuesday at noon. Hunter delivered a comprehensive presentation on the subject of county jails both statewide and locally, from what governing bodies managed them, how they were funded, to how Columbia County operated with what were described as its present inadequate facilities. When we talk about jails, nobody wants to build a jail when you think about it.

The American Dental Association sponsors National Children's Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the impor tance of oral health. Locally, the United Way of Suwannee Valley and the Florida Department of Health in Columbia, Hamilton, Suwannee and Lafayette counties partnered to dis tribute a dental care kit to every ele mentary school student to promote the importance of good oral care. Dental cavities are one of the most common chronic conditions of childhood in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Untreated tooth decay can cause pain and infections that may lead to problems with eating, speaking, playing and lear ning, the CDC says. In fact, good oral hygiene is essential for overall health. The United Way of Suwannee Valley Planning Committee elected to utilize funds received through an anonymous grant to partner with the Department of Health in each of the four counties in the local United Ways service area. United Way and the Department of Health are partnering on several projects utilizing the anonymous grant funds and supporting the county health improvement plans. It is customary for the Department of Health in these counties to participate in National Childrens Dental Health Month annually; however, due to a lack of financial resources this year, the United Way Planning Committee undertook the dental health initiative to provide the supplies. The National Childrens Dental Health Month slogan for this year is Brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste, and clean between your teeth for a healthy smile. Each of the components to accomplish this are provided in the dental care kits. Each elementary school child received a free dental kit containing toothpaste, a toothbrush and floss. More than 8,000 dental care kits will be distributed to school children throughout the four counties. COURTESYUnited Way of Suwannee Valley recently partnered with the Columbia County Department of Health for the distribution of dental care kits to all county elementary school students.

The signs feature the newspapers updated logotype and also feature Currents magazine and the companys web address. The new signs replaced old ones at street view and on the front of the building.No more charges for District 2 commissionerBy CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comCounty Commissioner Rusty DePratter wont have to look anyone in the eyes when hes formally reprimanded for misusing his office. DePratter, whom the Florida Commission on Ethics ordered to agreed to pay $1,000 in fines for two ethics violations, will receive a written reprimand from the governor and County Commission Chairman Tim Murphy said the states punishment would suffice. After the District 2 commissioner admitted to benefitting financially from his seat and maintaining a relationship with a company doing business with the county, the ethics commission on Friday fined him $500 for each violation. Murphy said he wont push for the Board of County Commissioners to also reprimand DePratter, since his actions pre-date the countys ethics policy and the state ethics commission has already handled the matter. Sounds to me like theyve already done their job, Murphy said. County Attorney Joel Foreman said nobody has filed a formal complaints against DePratter pursuant to the countys ethics policy, which features a threestrikes-style system ending in a referral to Tallahassee. But the investigation into DePratter began at the state level, where it appears to have reached a conclusion with the ethics commis sions decision. North Florida Fence Company saw a significant surge in business with the county from 2013 to 2015, when its bank accounts were under DePratters control, according to the ethics commission and Florida Department of Law Enforcement. In 2013, the county paid $450 to NFFC, which DePratter owned at the time, according an FDLE investigative summary. The next year, the company received $27,067 from the county. In 2015, when DePratter and other commissioners unanimously voted to award a contract to NFFP, the county paid $88,346 to the business. DePratter had sold the business by then, but was still an authorized user of its bank accounts, FDLE reported. Three of the seven ethics commissioners on Friday suggested DePratters actions warranted harsher punishment. Michael Cox, a certified financial planner from Trinity, said the board once fined a person the same amount as DePratter for a clerical error in reporting holdings to an IRA. These allegations are much more egregious in my mind, where theyre using their position for special private gain or loss, Cox said. Five-hundred dollars is not enough when the county commissioner is saying, Yes, I did it, theyre admitting to that. Daniel Brady, a Miami social worker, described DePratters conduct as somewhat sinister. Jason David Berger, a Palm City attorney, said hed support tripling the fines, but made no motion to do so. The motion for DePratters punishment passed 5-2, with Brady and Cox dissenting because it didnt go far enough. Third Circuit State Attorney Jeff Siegmeister said his office will soon formally close its investigation into DePratter in light of the ethics commissions decision. Siegmeister said he has obtained more than 3,000 pages of documents related to the probe into DePratter, which began with FDLE. Its a significant case that was handed to me, he said. Vehicle 1 came to final rest on its left side facing northeast on the shoulder of the roadway, the FHP report said. Suwannee County Fire Rescue operations manager Brad Merritt said it appeared the wreck occurred at the time the FHP estimated and went unnoticed until SCFR were called to the scene shortly before 7 a.m. CRASHContinued From 1A DePratter From staff reportsMotorists traveling Interstate 75 over the next several weeks can expect to see large, digital message signs being installed as part of an $12 million Florida Department of Transportation project. Once completed, this project will assist motorists with current travel information and improve interstate communication for emergency responders. The ITS (Intelligent Transportation System) project began in late 2016 and is currently in its second phase before its expected completion this summer. The project spans from Archer Road (State Road 24) in Alachua County to the Florida/Georgia line. The ITS project involves installing traffic cameras and vehicle detection sensors on the roadway. ITS allows emergency agencies to utilize enhanced technology to better detect traffic slowdowns and incidents. This information can then be passed along to motorists through digital message boards installed on the interstate and through the FDOT 511 system. The first digital message sign was installed on southbound Interstate 75 in Columbia County on Monday. The sign, installed alongside the southbound lanes about two miles south of the U.S. 41/441 exit, displays are approximately eight-feet tall and 25-feet wide. Additional signs are scheduled to be installed in Alachua and Columbia counties in the coming weeks and the project will continue north to the Georgia line until all signs are installed. Once completed, the District 2 ITS system will consist of 101 detectors on an 86-mile stretch of roadway. These sensors will be placed every half-mile in the city of Gainesville and every mile outside of the city limits. There will also be 24 digital message signs 11 northbound and 13 southbound and 95 cameras located on Interstate 75. Additionally, the system will sync up with another project on Interstate 10, which is currently under construction and will run from Interstate 295 in Jacksonville to U.S. 90 in Leon County. Installation of the signs will take place during daytime hours and will require a lane closure for crews to safely install the signs. Expected lane closures relating to this and all FDOT projects can be found on FDOTs weekly lane closure report, which can be found at NFLRoads. com.Digital signs to dot I-75 is not a popular thing. The things you hear out there by God we oughta take and just throw them out there in some tents, we oughta put them on the chain gang, we oughta feed them bread and water and all these things, said Hunter. Everybody likes to make those comments, but not until its one of their family members. And I bet you I could do a show of hands of those that would be honest, everyone of us in this room has had a family member or somebody thats got crossways with law enforcement and has had to spend time either in the jail or a state facility. The topic had been raised previously at Columbia County Commission meetings, which would be responsible for funding the project. Whether the money comes from ad valorem increase, or indirectly from a one-cent sales tax, the project Hunter presented seems nearly assured with a tentative completion and operation date of 2021. Hunter had a slideshow with information he said was reason for the move from its current location off Quinten Street to a roughly 33-acre plot of land proposed on U.S. Highway 90. The data said the jail reached its occupation capacity in 1983, was originally designed to hold 177 inmates, and is currently at 251 occupancy. He showed pictures of crumbling interior and exterior walls, ceilings and overcrowded makeshift living quarters. The slated project will cost around $25 million. It was a necessity, he said to avoid state involvement in local operations. Im telling yall as your sheriff and I think Ive done a pretty good job I aint been out there spending a lot of your money on a lot of frivolous things, Hunter said. This is something weve got to have. All the other stuff within the county Im not speaking for. Im telling you guys and gals right now that we cant push this off anymore. SHERIFFContinued From 1AScott has not announced that he is running for the Senate but is widely expected to do so --and no other prominent Republicans are running against Nelson. After the annual legislative session ended Sunday afternoon, Scott indicated a decision on entering the high-profile race could be weeks away. Im focused on this (governors) job. Im glad we had a very successful session, Scott said. Ill think about my future in the next few weeks. Steve Vancore, president of Clearview Research, said Scott leads Nelson by a margin of 37 percent to 34 among voters without party affiliations. Another key factor in the poll results is that Vancores firm estimates Republicans will have a narrow turnout edge in the mid-term election. While it is still very early to make any predictions, it is clear that this offyear election could come down to two simple factors: turnout and gaining margins among NPA (no party affiliation) voters, Vancore said in an analysis of the results. Both candidates are extremely well known and have the strong support of their parties, so turnout will be vital and in the event turnout is even, it will come down to NPA or independent voters who, right now, slightly favor the governor. The poll of 750 likely voters was conducted from March 1 through Wednesday. POLLContinued From 1A

In the debate over term limits for school board members, take Keith Hudson out of the equation for a minute. This is a debate grounded in logic and fact, and one should not be swayed by familiarity or friendship with the 11-term representative from District 4, the longest serving school board member in the history of the state. The question is this. Why do so many people want 8-year term limits for school board members, according to a statewide poll released Tuesday? A survey by Tallahassee-based Clearview Research showed 68 percent approval for such a measure, now under consideration by the Florida Constitution Revision Commission for inclusion on the November ballot. Constitutional amendments in Florida must receive 60 percent approval in order to be ratified, so passage would seem assured should the measure come before voters. The argument in favor of term limits always comes down to this: cronyism and corruption. Leave elected officials in power too long and they will become entrenched, go sour and forget why they were put there to begin with. In some cases, sure. But I suspect the people cited in these instances were always of questionable character. If their misdeeds finally came to light, it was more the law of averages at work than some diminution of their basic values, which tend not to change too much after the teen years. You are who you are, however long youve held some job. Yes, corrupt sorts can do increasingly greater damage the longer they stay in power and the more political clout they gather. This debate isnt happening in a vacuum, though. Look at how term limits have worked out for the Florida Legislature, which forces members out after eight years no matter how good or bad a job theyve done. Can anyone honestly say state lawmakers as a whole are better in any way more competent or honest than they were in 1992, when term limits took effect? If anything, the 8-year time limit has just accelerated the learning curve for mischief in Tallahassee. In settings other than politics, we value experience. Here we want to throw it away. If you find a Keith Hudson, keep him, I say. Others you can discard every four years if you wish. As for who fits what mold, such decisions should be left to the voters of any given city, district, county or circuit, and nobody else.

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 OPINIONSunshine laws have big effect on youFloridas celebrated Sunshine laws, which keep public discourse aboveboard and out in the open, may have a bigger effect on your daily life than you know. If you are a regular reader of this newspaper, it is certainly so. Heres why. Unlike big corporate newspapers and televi sion networks, we practice transparency ourselves in how we present the news. For one thing, we do not use unnamed sour ces. If we cannot attribute the main point of any stor y to an identified person or document, it doesnt go to press. That can prove an impediment. There may be things we know, but were told off the record and cannot attribute to the source. It can take a while to find another way to tell the story. But we would rather have you know where the story came from, so there can be no ques tion as to its legitimacy. Her es where the Sunshine laws enter the picture. Much of the time most of the time the sour ce of a story isnt a person, but a document penned in the course of public business. The document may be something a local offi cial doesnt want you to see, but under Florida law once we learn of its existence and request it, usually it has to be produced. Without these laws, we would be solely reliant on finding folks brave enough to speak openly about what they know, often at risk to their jobs and future. These are often the people who will only speak on condition of anonymity, which, as noted, is a form of journalism we do not prac tice. That means you wouldnt get the stor y. You would never know about nearly $200,000 siphoned out of a public agency and fed to another official under the guise of overtime pay, or about another officials repeated lies concern ing the biggest downtown renovation project ever But the truth did get out. And thats reason to celebrate, as we see it. Sunshine Week, March 11-17, is just such an observation. Please tell us your thoughts on the matter. Its your opinion that matters most, and wed like to hear it.On school board term limits Robert Bridgesrbridges@lakecityreporter.com Robert Bridges is editor of the Lake City Reporter.To the Editor: I noted the Reporters recent article on Judge Andrew Deckers decision not to run for reelection with air of sadness and sarcasm! Virtually all of the events pointing out his unfitness to be an attorney, no less a judge, were known and adequately published before he was elected. I believe the only thing new since that election is that the Florida Supreme Court finally got around to disciplining him for his misdeeds, a punishment that included a 6-month suspension. Voting is an extremely important civic obligation that determines the future and well-being of our heirs. Please allow me to use the pejorative word idiotic in describing the types of voters that elected Judge Decker along with some other criminals such as Marion Barry, the D.C. mayor sent to prison after being caught on video using crack with a prostitute, yet reelected after prison. Federal Judge Alcee Hastings, impeached from his Federal judgeship by the U.S. Congress for taking bribes from drug cartels, yet elected and currently serving as a U.S. Representative from Florida. Etc. Etc. So that brings up a pet peeve of mine incompetent voters! What in the world were the voters thinking that voted for Judge Decker? What voting bloc carried him? They are obviously not doing their homework before they go to the polls. I am recently of retirement age with a lot of advanced education and I am personally in awe of the obligation to cast an intelligent vote. It is an obligation that most people under 21 dont equip themselves for. If you give me the argument old enough to go to war youre old enough to... you prove to me that you are not yet intelligent enough to vote. I firmly believe that the voting age should be raised back to 21 at a minimum. The future of our country is endangered by incompetent and unqualified voters. Robert C. Long Lake City Idiotic voters worthy of contemptTo the Editor: I would like to send out a huge THANK YOU to the person/ persons on the Columbia County School Board that approved the recent and long overdue upgrades for our public pool, The Jared Allison Aquatic Complex. We now have newly rebuilt pumps, a new pump house, the facility has been painted and the leak has finally been fixed. Now the pool has been filled with water and is being cleaned and prepared for use. I would also like to thank Pat Sibbernsen Aquatic Supervisor, for his running of the pool efficiently for the past several years. Pats hands are tied by the School Board as to when it is open and when it is closed and he does a great job under these circumstances. Keep up the good work, Pat. Due to those circumstances plus weather, holidays and accidents the pool was open to the public for only 78 days last year during its season,May 10-August 31. Aquatic exercise and training for swim teams is not just a 78 day out of the year deal, it is a year around deal. A lot of adults and children that do this have to travel out of town to continue to make use of a pool for this during the off season months. Hopefully the pool opens as soon as it can and stays open as long as it can this year. Come out and support your public pool, Lake City. Looking forward to opening day. George H. Hudson Jr. Lake CityThanks for upgrades at public poolIf anything, the 8-year time limit has just accelerated the learning curve for mischief in Tallahassee.

Eating crab legs (something I havent done in years) will never be the same now that you know this useless fact but anyway cancer means that there is uncontrolled cell growth in a tissue, and its termed proliferation. Cancer strikes fear into the heart of millions of people each year. Once diagnosed, people are often motivated to alter the number of chemicals in their life, change their diet and lifestyle and sometimes end toxic relationships. As with my dear brother Danny, who had chronic low back pain and dismissed it, 20/20 hindsight is common. Sadly, it was one of several plaguing symptoms that was connected to colon cancer and he realized this after his diagnosis. My brother was a secret, and he really was. If youd like to read more about us, our relationship and his ultimate passing go to my website and search that phrase. Momentarily, I am going to tell you about a common symptom that you might have which could be tied to ovarian cancer. No one is immune from hearing the word if they live long enough, especially in a day and age where environmental and food pollutants abound. And then theres cosmetic ingredients as well, such as talc. There was a woman who passed away from ovarian cancer in 2015, and her family was awarded $72 million dollars as a result of this talcum powder lawsuit! New clinical trials and scientific articles have been popping up over the past year about medications and their benefit to ovarian cancer. For example, the medication class of statins (used for cholesterol management) have been investigated for their chemoprotective role, which is good. And recently, a study cleared metformin concluding that it does not raise risk for ovarian cancer, which is also good! Heres more interesting news. You might be able to detect it sooner if you dont ignore this common symptom. Bloating. The bloating is not the typical kind of bloating that you might get now and then with your menstrual cycle, or after eating beans. The type of bloating is chronic. Additionally, other signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer include pelvic pain, frequent urination, quick satiety, feeling queasy and chronic fatigue. There are six natural remedies that Id like to share with you today. I will list them all here for you, so you can research on your own. If by chance, you want me to elaborate on the benefits of all of these, please sign up for my free newsletter (suzycohen.com) and Ill email you a longer version of this article that contains that information. In no particular order, here are the six holistic options to consider for healthy reproductive structure and function: 1. Medicinal mushrooms 2. Chia and Flax seeds 3. Turmeric 4. Resveratrol 5. Green Tea Extract 6. Iodine If youre struggling with ovarian problems, do personal research because new compelling treatments, natural remedies and anti-cancer therapies are constantly being evaluated and released. There is always hope. Suzy Cohen is a pharmacist who got her start in Gainesville. UF researchers target deadly superbugFrom UF HealthGAINESVILLE UF Health researchers are developing new antibiotic drug combinations to attack one of the worlds deadliest superbugs. The superbug Acinetobacter baumannii, or A. baumannii, is a bacterial pathogen resistant to many antibiotics. Commonly found in hospitals, nursing homes and other health care facilities, A. baumannii is among the most challenging hospital-acquired pathogens in the world. It appeared at the top of the World Health Organizations 2017 list of priority pathogens that pose the greatest threat to human health. Treatment of A. baumannii infections costs an estimated $389 million per year in the U.S. alone and is associated with mortality rates as high as 80 percent. A. baumannii infections can no longer be treated with a single antibiotic; therefore, researchers around the world are eagerly developing new drug combinations and new antibiotics to combat this bacterial superbug. Acinetobacter baumannii can cause serious infections of the respiratory tract and bloodstream, and also impact burns and combat wounds, said Jrgen Bulitta, Ph.D., an associate professor of pharmaceutics in the University of Florida College of Pharmacy, and principal investigator of two recently funded UF Health studies related to antibacterial drug development. These infections are notoriously difficult to treat and can be deadly if they enter the respiratory system or bloodstream. The National Institutes of Health awarded a $3.4 million, five-year grant to the University of Florida, Case Western Reserve University and Monash University in Australia to study novel antibiotic dosing strategies against A. baumannii. Bulitta, along with his co-investigators, George Drusano, M.D., and Arnold Louie, M.D., from the UF College of Medicine, aim to identify new combinations of existing antibiotics that will better target A. baumannii. Other co-investigators include John Boyce, Ph.D., from Monash University in Australia, and Robert Bonomo, M.D., from Case Western Reserve University and the Louis Stokes Cleveland Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center. In addition, a $2.2 million, three-year grant from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration was awarded to the three researchers from UF Health, along with Bonomo and project leaders Brian Luna, Ph.D., and Brad Spellberg, M.D., from the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine. This team seeks to validate animal infection models that support research and development of new antibiotics against A. baumannii. A lack of validated animal infection models for preclinical studies of Acinetobacter baumannii presents a significant hurdle for the development of new, useful therapeutics, said Drusano, director of UFs Institute for Therapeutic Innovation at Lake Nona. If we can validate the animal models, then we can make a tangible contribution to combat this bacterial superbug. For the researchers involved, the grant funding represents a first step toward attacking the A. baumannii superbug. We are facing a serious global health crisis due to the lack of effective antibiotics, said Louie, co-director of UFs Institute for Therapeutic Innovation. Our hope is that these two federally funded research grants will make a significant contribution toward the development of antibacterial therapies so that we can address A. baumanniis threat to human health. Research reported in this news release is supported by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases of the National Institutes of Health under award number R01AI130185 and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration under award number HHSF223201710199C.COURTESY UF HEALTHFrom left: George Drusano, M.D., Jrgen Bulitta, Ph.D., and Arnold Louie, M.D., are leading UF Heaths efforts to attack a deadly bacterial superbug Dubbed one of the greatest threats to human health.

He isnt the biggest or the fastest. But that didnt stop Chace Curtis from becoming one of Columbias best wrestlers in program history. Small in stature, but the senior proved again this past season what it means to have a big heart on the mat. Curtis epitomized his illustrious career by bouncing back to claim the third place spot (126-pound weight class) at state after losing the prior semifinal on Mar. 3. I trained harder this year, said Curtis, who missed the final last season due to a back injury. I feel like I was better, and more mentally prepared going into state. It was quite an emotional finish returning to the podium for the first time since winning a state title in 2016. Despite falling to nationally-ranked Chris Rivera in the semis, Curtis won his next couple matches through the consolation bracket to take the bronze model.

Florida, Mullen open spring practice with plenty of unknownsBy MARK LONGAssociated PressGAINESVILLE New Florida coach Dan Mullen crisscrossed the state the last two months, telling anyone and everyone his plan for returning the Gators to national prominence. Its been all talk so far. Now its time to start implementing his plan. The Gators open spring practice Friday with hopes of finally fixing an offense that has been dormant for nearly a decade. Mullen hasnt made any promises for Year 1 and has a depth chart filled with uncertainty. In fact, there are only a few things he can count on as they take the practice field for the first time in 2018. I know theyre going to play hard because theyre not going to have an option, Mullen said Tuesday. I know that theyre going to learn to go hard. I know that were going to be physical. I feel comfortable with that with the team by seeing the lack of resistance in what weve asked them to do. Theres sure to be a transition period and some growing pains, especially considering coach Jim McElwain didnt leave Mullen nearly as much talent as former Florida coaches Ron Zook and Will COURTESYNew Florida coach Dan Mullen hasnt made any promises for Year 1. Mullen is taking over the program from former coach Jim McElwain. Gators hope to fix dormant offense in Year 1. Follow @LCR_Sports on Twitter for local stories, score updates and more Gators offense erupts in the sunshine showdown vs. FSUGAINESVILLE Florida used a big fifth inning to blow past Florida State 12-6 on Tuesday night at McKethan Stadium in Gainesville. Florida State opened up a 4-1 lead after two and a half innings, but the Gators scored nine unanswered runs to open up a big lead. Florida batted around and scored seven runs on five hits in the fifth. That included back-to-back doubles by Keenan Bell and Horvath for four of those runs. On the mound, freshman Tommy Mace earned the win with 3.1 shutout innings and Michael Byrne closed it out with 1.1 scoreless innings at the end.ROUNDUP(All-area team capsules were written by sports writer Jordan Kroeger) GATORS continued on 6B Section B Check out tournament breakdowns and analysis on page 6BCHACE continued on 2BBy JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE His single in the fifth inning gave him some much-needed confidence. His bases-clearing double in the sixth capped off a wild comeback. With Fort White trailing by a run in the sixth, Cody Morgan slammed a double into the outfield to score all three base runners to put Fort White ahead for the first time all night. He later came around to score on Caleb Mathews RBI double, finishing off a furious rally by the Indians in a 11-8 win over Trenton at Josh Barton field. That base hit I had earlier in the game really boosted my confidence, Morgan said. I just came up more confident than I have all season. My coaches have been helping me with my swing lately and I guess I got a big hit. Morgan says hes been struggling at the plate early in the season, but credits one major adjustment for his success Tuesday night. I switched something up at the plate and gave them a different approach. I usually dont go the opposite way with it and thats exactly what happened tonight, Morgan said. Trenton sent reliever Trey Sanchez to the mound to start the sixth and he immediately got himself into trouble. He walked Trey Houk, hit Jacob Sosa with a pitch and then walked Brant Parker to load the bases. That set the stage for Morgan, Fort White rallies from five runs down, scores four in sixth to steal win.INDIANS continued on 2B B1

After four years in the program, Curtis hangs up his singlet happily content especially after his comeback finish. That was definitely a big accomplishment for him, Columbia head coach Pete Whittington said. After coming up short last year due to injury, it was important for him to respond this year by making the podium. Without a doubt, he had one of the toughest weight classes at the state tournament. There were multiple state champions in his weight class, so to get on the podium it was exciting for all of us. It was a culmination of his high school career. Nobody wants to win a title their sophomore year and never come back and place. So that was really important to him. Curtis steadily dominated the competition over the last few years. The standout was ahead of his time when he arrived to the program his freshman year. With the help of local wrestling club, Monsta (founded by his father, Tony), Curtis started to find his edge on the mat as early as the sixth grade. It was his early days with Monsta, he says, which gave him the right foundation to later establish himself as one of the schools better wrestlers. It definitely helps, he said of the club which started in 2009. Going to national tournaments and wrestling nationally-ranked kids, and kids in different states, youre not just wrestling the same kids from Florida. It didnt take long for Curtis to make his mark at the high school level. He was only in his second year when he took home the schools first state title in 41 years. And he continued to show resiliceny as the teams captain a beacon of leadership, on and off the mat. Chace, without a doubt, is the most mentally tough wrestler that Ive been around, Whittington said. Because he may not always be the strongest. He may not always be the fastest with the competition he goes against. But Chace doesnt believe that anyone can beat him. And I think the young guys are starting to see that, as long as you believe in yourself, you can accomplish anything. Curtis plans to bring that same confidence and passion to the next level. His wrestling career continues at Limestone College, a Division II program in South Carolina. While he already has lofty goals set, including keeping a winning record, he wont stop being a fan of Columbia wrestling. Hell keep up with his alma mater from afar. He likes where things are headed under the direction of coach Whittington. Our freshmen this year were really good, really dominant, Curtis said. Obviously they got some work to do because theyre only freshmen. But I feel like by the time theyre seniors in high school, theyll be doing stuff at state The program is definitely growing. In the meantime, Curtis gets set to embark on a new journey when he arrives on campus this August. Nearly 500 miles away, but the Columbia star says he will still contribute to the Tigers whenever he can. He wont ever forget the place where he started. Im definitely going to help when I can. Columbia is my home. Thats where Ive grown up and thats where theyve raised me in wrestling. Hopefully I can come back one day and coach at Columbia. CHACE Continued From 1BCOURTESYChace Curtis took third place in the 126-pound weight class at the Class 2A state meet on March 3. whose game-winner didnt surprise head coach Rick Julius a bit despite his early-season struggles. All year long hes hit the ball. His average doesnt show it, but Ill tell you what, hes not going to strike out. He finally hit the ball the other way and cleared the bases, Julius said. The Indians trailed 7-2 heading to the bottom of the fourth thanks to four errors in the first two innings, which added insult to injury for their starting pitcher Sosa. He surrendered a solo home run to Wyatt Langford in the third and left the game after just 2 1/3 innings with a 6-2 deficit, though just three of those runs were earned. Jeremy Barber steadied the ship over the next three innings as Fort Whites bats started to wake up. Although Langfords RBI double in the fourth pushed Trentons lead to 7-2, Fort White scored three runs in the bottom of the frame thanks to singles from Kameron Couey and Mathews as well as three Tigers errors to get back into the game. That was enough to chase Trenton starter Carson Jones after 3 2/3 innings. We decided to start swinging it halfway through the game. We came out playing like its spring break, Julius said. We had four errors in the first two innings. We were behind to start the game and we started waking up at the plate. We had a lot of loud outs so I was very pleased with that. The kids did a good job and we just kept pounding away. Jacob Guthrie scored on an error in the fifth to put Trenton up 8-5 but Barber scored on a passed ball and Mathews delivered an RBI single in the bottom half to pull the Indians to within a run. Things got a little dicey for Fort White in the sixth as Barber delivered backto-back one-out singles before Julius pulled him for Tyler Shelnut. The Florida commit ended up in a bases-loaded jam but fought his way out of it with backto-back strikeouts. Shelnut retired the side in order in the seventh to pick up the win. I think were just going to remember this win and were going to have to build off this win, Morgan said. The next time we go out to practice we have to work harder than we have all year and just keep it going. INDIANS Continued From 1B Tebow sent to minor league camp by MetsPORT ST. LUCIE Tim Tebow was reassigned by the New York Mets to their minor league camp on Tuesday after he went 0 for 4 with four strikeouts in an exhibition against the Houston Astros. The former NFL quarterback and 2007 Heisman Trophy winner hit .056 (1 for 18) with 11 strikeouts in seven big league exhibition games. The 30-yearold, who is not on the Mets 40-man roster, has been hampered by a left ankle sprain. Ill just continue to work in all the areas weve been working and making progress. Thats really the focus to continue the process and the journey and keep working, Tebow said to report ers following the game. Tebows only hit was a hard single to center off Washingtons Erick Fedde on March 2. He has been used solely as a designated hitter or pinch hitter because of the injury. The ankle was kind of disappointing. I got to put in a lot of good work and feel like Im improving. Its getting there, Tebow said. Tebow, an outfielder, can appear in games for New York but would have to be brought over from the minor league side. He said being in a major league club house for the first time was rewarding.

LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, 2018 3B DEAR ABBY: Im frustrated that guests in my home almost never use the guest towels Ive put out for them in the bathr oom. Why do they do this? I remember a little poem in your column that addresses this. Id like to clip it and put it in there next to the towels. Please print it again! GOOD HOSTESS IN CLOVER, S.C. DEAR HOSTESS: With pleasure here it is: A GUEST TOWEL SPEAKS by Mabel Craddock Please use me, Guest; Dont hesitate. Dont turn your back Or vacillate. Dont dry your hands On petticoat, On handkerchief, Or redingote. Im here to use; Im made for drying. Just hanging here Gets very tiring. I thought the poem was clever enough when I first saw it that many of you would enjoy it. After it appeared, many readers thanked me for printing it. Some said theyd framed and hung it in the bathroom their guests used. (Pr oblem solved!) I hear from many readers asking me to re-run articles that hold meaning for them. Some say the articles have been saved until they are yellowed with age and falling apart. Eventually, it was suggested they be put together in a booklet. Since so many readers kept the items to re-read, the booklet is titled Keepers. It can be or dered by sending your name and mailing address, plus a check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds), to Dear Abby, Keepers Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. Filled with clever obser vations, Keepers is both witty and philosophical. It contains poems, essays and letters on subjects as diverse as children, parents, human nature, philosophy and death. Its a quick and easy read as well as an inexpensive gift for newly married couples, pet lovers, new par ents, and anyone grieving or recovering from an illness. DEAR ABBY : Do you think it is right that my parents disowned me because Im seeing a guy they dont like? I dont think it is. Im 25, and I live on my own with my son. NOT RIGHT IN WASHINGTON DEAR NOT RIGHT: Not knowing the guy or your parents reason for disliking him, I can only suggest that their reaction seems extreme. By age 25 you should be mature enough to decide something like this without being emotionally blackmailed. Please recognize that if you give in to this, they will be making your decisions for you until they ar e no longer on this side of the sod. Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com Lighthearted poem reminds visitors to use guest towels DILBERT BABY BLUES BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C. FRANK & ERNEST FOR BETTER OR WORSE ZITS HAGAR THE HORRIBLE SNUFFY SMITH GARFIELD CLASSIC PEANUTS DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES | THE LAST WORD BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don't make a fuss. Do your best to protect what you have. Make the changes that are within your means and that appear likely to bring you more in return. A change of pace, location or company will do you good. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): If you need help, ask. Don't miss out or fall short because you are too stubborn to admit that you can't do everything on your own. Ego and obsessive behavior will cost you. Dealings with institutions and authority figures are discouraged. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don't take on too much. If you focus on what's important, you won't be disappointed. You have everything to gain if you show dedication, loyalty and the ability to finish what you start. Positive change is heading your way. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You may want to offer help, but don't make promises you'll regret. Only do what's reasonable and don't jeopardize your position, status or financial stability. Learn from past mistakes. Move forward with caution. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Positive action, kindness and good advice will help you avoid an emotional mishap with someone special. Overreacting or indulgent behavior will lead to a falling-out with a friend, relative or loved one. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don't offer personal information. Someone will overreact if you share your opinions. Stay focused on self-improvement and putting in an effort to look and feel your best. An exercise routine and healthy diet will help you avoid illness. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A youngster will offer insight into a situation you face. Personal relationships are highlighted. Put your plans into motion and don't look back. If you trust and believe in yourself, you will improve your life. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You'll be emotional when it comes to domestic situations. Before you make a change, consider what you will be losing in the process. Let things settle before you make any financial decisions. It's possible that you or someone close to you is overreacting. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Handling money may seem easy, and a deal someone offers you may tempt you, but do more research before you do anything that can affect your financial status. Invest in what you know, not what someone tells you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Show some emotion when dealing with sensitive situations and you will avoid being labeled as cold and distant. It will help to let the people who love you see your vulnerability once in a while. Change should come from within. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Share your thoughts, interests and feelings with someone you love. Getting together with an old friend will be revealing and will help you put your life in perspective. Be proud of what you've accomplished. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don't be afraid to show your true colors. Mimicking what others think will not give anyone a sense of who you are or what you are capable of doing. Be true to yourself and see what develops. Singer Phil Phillips is 92.

Everything else I want to see, Mullen said. I try not to judge too much. Ill try even in spring. I dont want to get too excited. I dont want to get too worried because its probably never as good or never as bad as it seems. ... Im optimistic. Im excited to see the guys. I see not just the hunger from our fan base, but the hunger for the guys. These guys came to Florida to play for championships. Thats why they came to school here and compete on one of the premier teams in America. I think theyre excited to do that. The Gators parted ways with McElwain last October, following a 42-7 loss to Georgia that came on the heels of McElwains unfounded allegations of death threats to his family. McElwains tenure had other issues, like a floundering strength and conditioning program and, more obviously, a lackluster offense that failed to make much, if any, progress in three seasons. Mullen believes he can turn the Gators around, much like he and Urban Meyer did in the mid1990s. To me, it starts with your effort and how you carry yourself as a player, Mullen said. Id love us in the next four years go 60-0 with four national titles. ... Sixtyand-0 is not the Gator standard. The Gator standard is: Did we push ourselves to be the absolute best we can be and take ourselves to become the absolute best we could be? If we do that then youre going to have the opportunity to go win the championships that we expect as part of this program. Here are a few other notable items from Tuesday: FRANKS TALKS: Quarterback Feleipe Franks spoke for the first time since last season, saying he had a reflection period after the 4-7 campaign and called the coaching change a fresh start. Just get a sigh of relief through the building and then to know we have a new start so that were not dreading on last season, said Franks, who is expected to compete for the job with freshman Emory Jones. Ive never been afraid of competition. Its nothing new to me. INJURED PLAYERS: Mullen said running back Malik Davis (knee) and guard Brett Heggie (knee), two starters injured late last season, wont be available during spring practice. Both are expected to be ready for fall camp. Florida defensive lineman Keivonnis Davis has also been reinstated. GATORSContinued From 1B
