Lee Ann Morales was headed east on NE Highway 351 at 1:30 p.m. when she attempted to turn into a private driveway, FHP said.

The driver of the pickup, Jack Blankenship, 21, High Springs, and his passenger, Franklin Blankenship, 83, High Springs, suffered minor injuries, FHP said.

With recent headlines about Texas bombing incidents in mind, they might have worried. Lake City Fire Chief Frank Armijo, at the scene that day, said their presence was only an overabundance of caution in response to reports from Lake City police of possibly hazardous material on board the USPS mail truck. Thats the first thing I thought about was, you know, whats going on, said Armijo referring to the fatal Texas incidents. However, the postal service carrier was just following internal procedures, reporting a leaky container that Armijo said held a grease removal agent. It was a [biodegradable] cleaner and the post office was delivering a box with the product in it, and one of the lids had come loose and it had released, Armijo said. It was non-hazardous.

This spring or early summer, the U.S. Supreme Court might legalize sports betting across the country. Missouri and Illinois are among dozens of states where Legislatures are scrambling to get ready. Missouri, where several legalized sports betting bills already have had committee hearings, is moving faster than Illinois, where gambling-expansion legislation often runs afoul of efforts to expand the casino industry. In Missouri, the key question is how much the state should rake off in taxes. The answer to that, as with all sin taxes, should be as much as possible. Supreme Court oddsmakers are betting that the justices will side with the state of New Jersey when they decide Christie v. NCAA, which would invalidate a 1992 federal law banning states from authorizing and licensing sports betting. In oral arguments heard in December, a majority of the justices appeared sympathetic to New Jerseys argument that the 10th Amendment prohibits Congress from commandeering states into enforcing federal law. It is a tricky argument that holds implications beyond sports. What about other federal prohibitions, including legalized marijuana and euthanasia? The 10th Amendment reserves to the states or the people any powers not specifically granted to the federal government, but courts have generally upheld the Constitutions Supremacy Clause as meaning federal law pre-empts conflicting state laws. During oral arguments, the Supreme Courts conservative majority seemed prepared to let other states join Nevada, Delaware, Oregon and Montana, where sports betting was legal before the 1992 law was passed. The American Gaming Association estimates that at least $150 billion a year is bet illegally on sports. No one knows for sure, and other estimates run as high as $400 billion. Whatever it is, states are hoping to peel some of it off. Sen. Denny Hoskins, R-Warrensburg, estimates Missouri could reap $18 million to $40 million in new revenue if his Senate Bill 1013 passes. At least four competing bills have been introduced, including one containing the terrible idea to legalize video gambling games at bars, restaurants and fraternal organizations. Generally, sports bettors would have to sign up at one of the states 12 casinos. Their accounts would be run through a phone app so they could bet anywhere in Missouri. Hoskins bill would be the most lucrative for the state. It would impose a 12 percent tax on the adjusted gross betting receipts as well as 2 percent administrative fee. In addition, sports leagues would get 1 percent of everything bet on their games for integrity enforcement. Pro sports leagues are generally on board. The NCAA is not and would be able to opt out under state laws. Nonetheless, when the Final Four begins next week, you may be shocked shocked to find that gambling is going on.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, ChairmanLETTERS TO THE EDITOR OUR OPINIONHigh-tech I-75 signs more than a noveltyThe Florida Department of Transportation is serving local folks well with the planned addition of sophisticated electronic signs along I-75. The first one in this region was installed Monday near the U.S.41/441 exit. These new signs are more than a simple convenience and more than cool new oversized gadgets. Mark our words, they will save lives. Think of how bad traffic has gotten on this stretch of I-75 headed south. Think of how many terrible accidents are recorded on that segment of road per year. And think of what you do when you want to check whats ahead in hopes of avoiding gridlock, whether caused by somebody elses personal tragedy or not. Naturally, you pull out your phone. But with that maneuver, you contribute to the very problem you are trying to avoid. Soon you will be able to let the signs do your checking for you. These new displays, which will stretch from Archer Road in Gainesville to the Georgia line, will certainly save lives. From that perspective, their $12 million price tag seems reasonable indeed. Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY TODAY IN HISTORY Will sports betting be legalized?On this date: In 44 B.C., Roman dictator Julius Caesar was assassinated by a group of nobles that included Brutus and Cassius. In 1767, the seventh president of the United States, Andrew Jackson, was born in Waxhaw, South Carolina. In 1820, Maine became the 23rd state. In 1916, a U.S. expeditionary force led by Brig. Gen. John J. Pershing entered Mexico on an ultimately futile mission to capture Pancho Villa, whose raiders had attacked Columbus, New Mexico, killing 18 U.S. citizens. In 1977, the U.S. House of Representatives began a 90-day closed-circuit test to determine the feasibility of showing its sessions on television. In 1985, the first Internet domain name, symbolics. com, was registered by the Symbolics Computer Corp. of Massachusetts. In 1996, the Liggett Group agreed to repay more than $10 million in Medicaid bills for treatment of smokers, settling lawsuits with five states. St. Louis Post-Dispatch To the Editor: Much has been written in r ecent months about Columbia Countys purchase of environmental credits from Bayfield Mitigation Bank. Much of what has been written is inaccurate and negative. It is time to set the record straight. Bayfield has done everything by the book, inclusive of a five-year permitting process that established a wetland good for the area environment and helps save our communitys natural resources. We followed all of the requirements mandated by the involved governmental agencies, including the Flroida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the Army Corps of Engineers (ACE). During this process, public notices were published which required parties with objections to the project or claims to the land to submit such objections. None were submitted. The process also required Bayfield to purchase a title insurance policy for the benefit of the DEP. The policy was purchased and issued with no exceptions (including that of mineral rights) indicating that Bayfield had clear title to the mitigation bank property. As a result of these efforts by Bayfield, the mitigation bank was approved by DEP and the ACE. Columbia County purchased 27.7 credits from Bayfield at a significant discount. By state rule and project permit not all of the credits were issued to the County at one time because credits, when issued, must be issued for a specific project. Each project which may require mitigation credits is reviewed by the DEP and Suwannee River Water Management on a case by case basis. Credits are issued only on approval of each project. After several years of operating the mitigation bank, Bayfield was surprised to hear from White Springs Agricultural Chemicals asserting that they owned rights to dig phosphate on much of the land comprising the mitigation bank. The surprise stems from neither White Springs nor its parent companies objecting or otherwise responding to the required public notices about the creation of the conservation easement established for the mitigation bank. Moreover, mitigation construction was constantly ongoing on the land White Springs supposedly has some interest in, again with no objection from White Springs. White Springs nevertheless communicated with DEP about its asserted rights, resulting in an immediate suspension of the operation of the mitigation bank, leaving Bayfield completely powerless to issue further credits, including credits to Columbia County. This scenario forced Bayfield to file suit against White Springs and its parent companies as well as the title insurance company. White Springs is part of a large corporate entity from Chicago and Canada which makes every effort to convince the citizens of Columbia County that it is an integral part of the community. What is not recognized nor fully understood is that their primary objective is to dig phosphate mines here and create the same environmental and natural resource nightmares as can be found elsewhere. Only here, such mines will be in close proximity to the Suwannee River and the Osceola National Forest. It should be of concern to all citizens that the ability for Bayfield to issue mitigation credits from an approved and permitted mitigation bank was suspended without the benefit of court hearing, administrative review, or any other form of due process being afforded to Bayfield. I would suggest this is not fair or reasonable. I have invested much of my assets to this project which included 2,000 acres of my land and permitting fees. To hang on while the issue plays through the courts is difficult for me and my family. I am sincerely apologetic to the county for the position this has placed them in. Nothing would please me more than to see them use the credits they have paid for. I can only hope that the issue will resolve itself before more legal action is required.

No one knows for sure, and other estimates run as high as $400 billion.

According to a witness Fernandez questioned at the scene, Jordans vehicle struck a 2006 Toyota van on its left side and injured the driver who was transported to West Marion Community Hospital. At this point I was trying to locate the operator of [vehicle one] so I proceeded back to and opened the door to the vehicle. Immediately upon opening the door I could smell a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from within the vehicle, Fernandez statement said. Sheriffs deputies had arrived and were assisting FHP as Fernandez looked for Jordan, who he reportedly found in his wifes vehicle awaiting an ambulance. [Jordan] was incoherent, stated that he didnt remember, he was slurring his words and I could smell a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from his breath, Fernandez stated. Jordan allegedly refused to give a blood sample, and was told he would be arrested after receiving medical attention, the report said. When Fernandez returned after searching the vehicle and writing a crash report, he said Jordan had fled the scene on foot. Fernandez requested a deputy help him search for Jordan and when the search was unsuccessful he requested additional help from the deputys dog, the report said. With the K-9 unit deployed they quickly found Jordan hiding in the bushes about 200 feet away, the FHP report said. EMS was called to the scene in order to transport the suspect to Ocala Regional Medical Center due to the dog bite Fernandez stated. After arriving at the hospital Jordan reportedly attempted to escape on foot and then after locating him a second time he tried again. This time I was in close proximity to the suspect and was able to perform a takedown technique and restrain the individual with the help of [an] Ocala police officer, Fernandez said in the report. Following medical examinations he was taken to jail, only after refusing to answer Fernandez questions, according to the report. Suwannee County Fire Rescue Suwannee County Fire Rescue Assistant Chief Eddie Hand confirmed Jordans employment Wednesday around noon, but later that day Chief James Sommers posted an announcement on social media regarding Johnson. The employee was off duty during the time of the incident. Suwannee County Fire Rescue does not condone nor tolerate these types of actions therefore his employment was terminated effective immediately, Sommers said. OFFICIALContinued From 1A ing has been removed and crews are on the second floor now demolishing the suites in the two wings, formerly office space, said Wendell Johnson, city manager. Theyre rockin and rollin. Theyre very aggressive and I suspect the schedule established for them by IDP, which is December, theyre going to stay aggressive and try to meet that. Johnson said hes a little skeptical about the project being completed by December, but with 10 months remaining, including some weekend work, meeting the proposed deadline could be possible. Removing the elevator was a big challenge for the project due to the concrete container that housed it. Marion Avenue was closed for two weeks while the elevator was removed and the project may call for the roadway to be closed again in a few months when crews begin working on the buildings balcony. The balcony will be at the same location of the original, over the buildings front door. The bathrooms in the hotel have bathtubs that are raised about six inches on a concrete platform. Right now thats a very laborious task to remove all those tubs out of all those hotel rooms, Johnson said. They have to remove them, strip them all out and Im really curious what they are going to do with all those old tubs. I hope they can recycle them. In addition to the construction work at the Blanche itself, the project also calls for the addition of two parking lots, one in the rear of the building and the other at the former Richardson Paint Store location. The city attorney is moving forward with the environmental attorney that worked to acquire the old paint store and they are having a site survey prepared, Johnson said. Once thats done, [city attorney] Fred Koberlein will go ahead and execute the closing and the city will take ownership of that property. Bids for the Community Development Block Grant project closed Thursday and plans are to have the bid awarded at the March 19 city council meeting to demolish the old Erkinger Building, on Columbia Street. The city purchased the Erkinger Building in November with Community Development Block grant proceeds as part of the Veterans Street parking improvement project. The building will be demolished and construction of a 58-lot restricted parking area will begin. The lot will offer two-hour parking. The parking lot which will be constructed at the old paint store site will offer unrestricted parking.

It was a one gallon bottle, plastic jug. It was yellow and it was just made for degreasing. It didnt get onto the environment, what little bit released the box absorbed up, Armijo said. To mall employees at the time however, it was all but clear what the large presence of first responders gathered outside Belk meant and what they were looking for. Information about the incident was not obtained until Wednesday around 11 a.m. after attempts to get details from LCFD and LCPD the day before. A USPS associate at its mall location, Cheryl Wentling, said LCPD approached her counter before her lunch break looking for what she called a hazmat. I dont know what it was about, said Wentling. I know that there was a bunch of them. She said the officers asked her about the location of the material, which was on board the carrier and not inside the malls post office location. Armijo said they assessed the substances threat level through its material safety data sheet listing that was located previously by an LCPD officer.

She can score, assist, defend you name it whether its with her feet or with her head. Goals were aplenty for Columbia this season and Carrillo was the catalyst. She scored a team-high 19 and also dished out nine assists, all part of 78 total goals for the 2017-18 season. Nobody was better than Carrillo in the District 2-4A quarterfinal win over Gainesville either, just the programs second district tournament win in the last four seasons. Her total all-around game is why Carrillo is the Lake City Reporters Girls Soccer Player of the Year. I try my best not to build a team around a player but she makes it very, very difficult. Shes just a dynamic player, Garner said. You can put her anywhere and shes going to be phenomenal at that position. Shes just the definition of what youd want in a soccer player playing for you. She could almost score on demand. It was kind of insane at times how she effective she was as a striker. Columbias 7-4 win over Gainesville in the district tournament is Carrillos top memory from her junior season and for plenty of reasons. She scored less than two minutes in to set the pace, just the beginning of her stellar night that ended with a hat trick. It was also sweet revenge for the Lady Tigers, who lost to the Hurricanes just two weeks earlier. The way that we played and how we persisted and kept going and JUST FOR KICKSFILEIrene Carrillo is the Lake City Reporters Girls Soccer Player of the Year. Was the teams offensive MVP this season and didnt miss a game. Her five goals were tied for second most on the team. Played through a chronic hip injury, playing the most minutes on the team without missing a game. She was the Indians defensive MVP with 164 saves. Made key plays in the back end for the Tigers, earning the teams defensive MVP award. She had three saves and even scored a goal on offense. Kept her team in multiple games this seaosn with her play in the net. She posted six shutouts and finished the year with 167 saves. Was an offensive force for the Tigers this season. She led the team in assists with 12 and was second on the team with 14 goals.ALL-AREA TEAM Caycee Collier Fort White Forward Kirsten Garner Columbia Forward Emily Lamoreaux Columbia Goalkeeper S.K. Lewis Columbia Defender Sypress Moore Fort White Goalkeeper Follow @LCR_Sports on Twitter for local stories, score updates and moreBy MARK LONGAssociated PressJACKSONVILLE D.J. Hayden and Don Carey are remaining teammates, just in another city. The former Detroit defensive backs agreed to free-agent contracts with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Wednesday, according to a person familiar with negotiations. Both players are expected to sign deals Thursday, said the person who spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because NFL teams are prohibited from announcing signings until free agency officially begins Wednesday afternoon. SiriusXM Sports reported that Hayden will sign a three-year deal worth $19 million, including $9.5 million guaranteed. The 27-year-old Hayden replaces nickel cornerback Aaron Colvin, who reportedly agreed to a four-year deal with the Houston Texans on Tuesday. Hayden has played in 61 games with Oakland (2013-16) and Detroit (2017), totaling 223 tackles, 35 pass breakups, three interceptions and 1 sacks. Carey is expected to be a core special teams player for the Jaguars, who are looking to upgrade those units in 2018. A sixth-round draft pick by Cleveland in 2009, Carey landed in Jacksonville when the Jaguars claimed him after being waived/injured. He started 10 games for Jacksonville in 2010, got cut the following year and ended up in Detroit. He has 117 tackles, nine pass breakups and three interceptions in 99 games. Hayden and Carey will join one of the leagues best defenses, a unit that returns 10 starters from last season and expects to be even better while playing a second year together.Jaguars agree to deals with Hayden, CareyNFLCOURTESYDetroit Lions defensive back D.J.

Sure, Daynia La-Force asks her son about his grades, whether he is eating right and the other normal parental inquiries. But Mann also gets a breakdown of his performance with his mother pointing out his strengths and weaknesses. Thats because La-Force is the womens basketball coach at Rhode Island. Shes good at balancing it, Mann said. She knows when I need the coach and knows when I need the mom. Despite being over 1,200 miles apart and having her own demands leading a Division I program, La-Force rarely misses Manns games and stays ready to give him an assessment. La-Force said she always starts off the conversation asking her son how hes doing before diving into the coaching conversations. He listens to me and understands my perspective. I see the sets and what is supposed to happen, she said. When it is your son not making those plays it is kind of tough. The talks have paid off for Mann. He has become one of the team leaders after three starters off last years squad left for the NBA. The 6-foot-6 guard was honorable mention All-Atlantic Coast Conference after leading the Seminoles in scoring and rebounding. He also helped Florida State to consecutive NCAA Tournament bids for the first time in six years. The ninth-seeded Seminoles (2011) open tournament play on Friday against eighth-seeded Missouri (2012) in the West region in Nashville. Mann has been one of Florida States best defensive players throughout his career, but has shown the most improvement on offense this season. He is averaging 13.2 points per game, which is nearly five points better than last season, and has made 55.8 percent of his shots. He has six games of 20 or more points, including a career-high 30 in a Jan. 24 win over Georgia Tech. But he struggled in consecutive losses to Virginia and Notre Dame last month, prompting La-Force to tell him he needed to show more versatility in his shooting. She noticed Mann was relying too much on cutting right and driving to the basket. He still values being the glue guy and making the extra play, she said.

The Jaguars also are re-signing receiver Marqise Lee. Norwell is expected to sign a five-year, $66.5 million contract that includes $30 million guaranteed, one of the people said. That would make him one of the highest-paid offensive linemen in the league. Moncrief will sign a one-year deal worth $7 million, according to ESPN. Lee agreed to a four-year deal worth $38 million that includes $18 million guaranteed, another person said. Lee and Moncrief will be counted on to try to fill the void left by losing former Pro Bowl receiver Allen Robinson, who is headed to Chicago. Norwell will slide into Jacksonvilles offensive line at left guard, between left tackle Cam Robinson and center Brandon Linder. Although Jacksonville led the NFL in rushing in 2017, the running game stalled late in the season and barely was a factor in the playoffs. Norwell should help make Jacksonvilles line, especially the left side, one of the best in the AFC. And Moncriefs big-play ability could prevent defenses from stacking the line of scrimmage against running back Leonard Fournette.COURTESYThe Jacksonville Jaguars are also poised to sign guard Andrew Norwell to a five-year deal.

LAKECITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICSTHURSDAY, MARCH 15, 2018 3B DEAR ABBY: I was working out of town in a position that paid a good salary. When my adult son proposed to his girlfriend, I told him I would try and give him $10,000 for the wedding. Well, things changed. I had to return home for good, and my salary was cut. When I told my son I wouldnt be able to give him $10,000, but could give him only $5,000 instead, he became very upset and said, You promised that amount and we were counting on that money! I feel a gift is a gift, and they should be happy with whatever I can manage. After talking it over with several friends, they all agreed that he is behaving inappropriately. I am single and trying to retire in 10 years. Please help. SALARY CUT IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR SALARY CUT: Your sons reaction was immature. He should understand that sometimes circumstances can change. If you havent already explained why you need to cut back on the sum you planned to give him, do it now. How he reacts to your explanation will tell you whether you want to give him even $5,000. DEAR ABBY: I recently took a job working for someone I knew. He was a neighbor and attended my church for several years, but we were never more than acquaintances. After I began working there, I saw things going on with other girls in the office that were very inappropriate. Then I stumbled across a sexual online chat he was having with one of them. As I scrolled through the feed, it became apparent theyre having an affair. It made me so uncomfortable I quit working there. We still live in the same community. He has a beautiful, kind and very pregnant wife. Should I tell her? Should I tell anyone, or stay quiet and let him get away with it? It makes me sick, and I dont know what to do at this point. UNCOMFORTABLE IN THE WEST DEAR UNCOMFORTABLE: Allow me to suggest that what you do is remain silent, at least for now. The kind and very pregnant wife does not need to be told that her husband is cheating with an employee at this juncture. After the baby is born, perhaps she should be told if she doesnt know already but NOT NOW. DEAR ABBY: Please help! How do I politely tell my partner -without hurting his feelings -that I dont like his cooking and I should be the one doing the cooking because Im more seasoned in the kitchen than he is? I am usually the chef and he is the second-in-command, which in the past has worked. SEASONED IN CALIFORNIA DEAR SEASONED: Heres how: Skip the part about not liking his cooking, which could be hurtful. Ease into it by telling him you consider cooking together to be a bonding experience. Then say how much you enjoy taking the lead when the two of you do it, how meaningful it is when he helps you, and how much youd appreciate it if he would continue to let you be the chef.

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): Keep your financial, medical and legal issues a secret. Sharing too much information with others will put you in a vulnerable position. Finish whatever responsibilities you are handed quickly and efficiently. Take time to relax and rejuvenate. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): What you offer will be well-received. Partnerships will help you get ahead. Set up meetings or offer your services to those in need of help. Establishing a healthy relationship with someone will be beneficial. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A situation that exposes your emotions will put you in a vulnerable position at work or when dealing with people who may take advantage of you. Be careful what information you share. Don't be too proud or gullible. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your emotions and insight will help you figure out the best way to respond to someone who makes unreasonable demands. Fight back by offering positive alternatives. Lead the way, but don't do all the work yourself. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Money matters will not be clear. Go over your expenses, assets and debts and see where you can cut corners to avoid loss and stress. Don't let your desire to be loved lead to ill-considered generosity. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): An opportunity to work alongside someone you respect or enjoy spending time with will make it easier to get things done. Mixing business with pleasure will allow you to explore your options. Someone close to you will get upset easily. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don't waste your time thinking about what you should do -take action and make things happen. Listen to someone who has more experience than you and you'll find answers that will help you excel. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You have more leeway than you realize. Express your feelings and work alongside someone you love to make your surroundings, location and relationship convenient and comfortable. Wear the purple hat and enjoy being different. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Physical activity will make you feel alive. Try something new or set your sights on something you want to accomplish. Celebrate your success with someone you love. Personal and home improvements are featured. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don't let anyone limit what you can do with responsibilities that don't belong to you. Stay focused on what you do best and what best serves your interests. Don't rely on others -do the work yourself. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Emotional problems will set in if you overreact or take things the wrong way. Think before you respond to any criticism that you feel is unfair. Give others the benefit of the doubt and be willing to compromise. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Be forthright about what you want and don't stop until you at least have some idea how best to move forward. Use past experience to help you gain insight into the best way to enforce what you want to see unfold. Elvis Presley drummer DJ Fontana is 87. Actor Judd Hirsch is 83.

Mann said the change in being relied on more on as a scorer has been a challenge, especially later in the season when teams know every tendency. I have to have a bigger role on both sides that has meant more scoring but also guarding and going after best player, Mann said. Florida State assistant Charlton Young has known La-Force since 2000. He first met Mann eight years ago and later offered him a scholarship when he was the head coach at Georgia Southern. When Young became a part of Leonard Hamiltons staff in 2013, Mann became the first recruit in a 2015 class that included Malik Beasley and Dwayne Bacon. I think he sat in a lot of car rides and in the living room listening to his mom complain about players and he said to himself I dont want to be that player, Young said. La-Force has been a college coach since graduating from Georgetown in 1995. She started as an assistant at Long Island University and St. Johns before becoming a head coach at New Haven, Northeastern and Rhode Island. Mann, and his younger brother Martin, have been there most of the way. While Martin would run around the gym during practices or games, La-Force noticed Terance was intently watching and picking up on every call. At an early age I knew he was serious about the game because he wouldnt move, she said. As Mann got older, the teaching developed more on the court. When Mann was in high school and La-Force was the coach at Northeastern, there would be some practices where Mann would help out by being on the scout team. The postgame debriefs will not have to be over the phone this week. La-Force was in the stands during the ACC Tournament and will travel to the NCAA Tournament. Manns father, Eustace Mann, lives in Maryland and also will be in Nashville this week after attending some games this season. Hamilton said he expects Mann to again lead on and off the court. Theres a lot of positives growing up in a house with a coach. He always seems to have a clear understanding of how the game needs to be played, Hamilton said. With that skill and knowledge hes going to be a guy our players are going to look to. MANNContinued From 1Bkept scoring goals, that allowed us to win. Thats what I enjoyed and remember from that game, Carrillo said. After losing against them we were kind of upset so going into that third game it was huge for us. We said we cant get kicked out of the district game to GHS when weve beaten them in the years before. It motivated us a lot more to beat them. Soccer was a love that bloomed at a young age for Carrillo. When she was only seven years old, she watched her older brother, Jorge, play travel soccer as well as high school ball. That made her grab her own pair of cleats and follow in his footsteps, not only at Columbia, but also her own travel team. After spending time on GSA out of Jacksonville, she joined the Clay County Sol this past year. She says her Sol teammates, as well as her opponents, made her a better soccer player in her junior season. The players are really competitive and fast, Carrillo said. Their technique is phenomenal so that means since Im playing with players who are as talented as me or even more talented than me, it pushes me to play at a higher level and work twice as hard. Columbias season ended in the district semifinals against Leon, a 4-0 loss that extended the programs long playoff drought even further. But believe it or not, Garner says that match was his favorite memory of Carrillo this season, not necessarily for her play on the field, but for her leadership instead. We were down (4-0 at halftime) and she managed to rally that team and we held them the last half based on her spirit at halftime, Garner said. She really stepped up and rallied her troops behind her so thats probably my favorite memory of Irene this year, just hearing her emotional investment in the game. As the teams top offensive player, leader and captain, Carrillo hopes her senior season is one to remember, not just for herself but also for the program. She wants to set the school record for goals scored en route to leading the Lady Tigers to a long awaited trip to the postseason. And for those top Tallahassee schools that sit in her path Leon, Lincoln and Chiles Carrillo welcomes their challenges. The district is pretty hard because most of those girls play travel soccer year round, Carrillo said. They play with each other so theyre really well connected so when it comes to those one-two passes, they already know where the player is going to be at. Its not hard for them to play together and thats the thing I think us as a team can kind of work on, being better connected so we can be as good as those Tallahassee teams and play as good as them. I think weve built a good foundation as a team. Since we had a bunch of new starters and new players, I think building that bond is starting to grow a little bit. IRENE Continued From 1BJEN CHASTEEN/Special to the ReporterIrene Carrillo came up big in the district tournament, scoring a hat trick against Gainesville in a 7-4 win.

Dan DAntoni was a 23-year-old assistant with the Marshall basketball program in 1970, and a babysitter, too. He was at the home of a friend and team physician for the Thundering Herd when a plane carrying members of the Wichita State football team crashed in Colorado. As they watched the news unfold, and learned of the 31 lives lost, Dr. Ray Hagley turned to DAntoni and said: You really dont know how tragic this is going to be unless you live there. Six weeks later, DAntoni was watching some of Hagleys six children when television and radio broadcasts were interrupted for a report that the plane carrying the Marshall football team had crashed near campus, killing all 75 aboard. Among them were Hagley and his wife. Their children were suddenly orphans. DAntoni eventually left Marshall, and an athletic department ripped apart by pain and loss, only to return in 2014 to lead the Thundering Herd. As fate would have it, the programs first trip to the NCAA Tournament in 31 years means a game against Wichita State on Friday in San Diego. We certainly experienced the same type of tragedy, DAntoni recalled this week. The meaning of the schools first matchup in mens basketball (they never played in football) is hardly lost on supports and alumni of two schools forever linked by tragedy. The bracket release on Sunday brought back reminders of the bonds forged by them in the days and weeks after the crashes, their struggles to rebuild and the awful memories that will never go away. To be 18 years old and to be part of two human tragedies was a heavy burden, said John Potts, a kicker on the 1970 Shockers team who, like other freshmen, was ineligible to play at the time. That meant he was home in Wichita when one of the schools two planes went down. Once we were made aware of the Marshall plane going down, Potts said, we were all stunned, and it was hard to believe it was happening all over again. We were just a few weeks removed from laying all of our teammates, coaches, staff, faculty members and supporters to rest. The crashes were separated by a mere 43 days and 1,300 miles. It was a clear Oct. 2 when the two planes carrying Wichita States team took off from Denver, headed for a game at Utah State. The plane nicknamed Black took the planned route north and arrived safely, while the Gold plane carrying the starters, university officials and boosters took a detour that the pilots thought would give their passengers a more scenic view. The plane was unable to pull out of a canyon west of Denver near tiny Silver Plume. It crashed into a hillside, killing 14 starters and more than a dozen others. The events on that mountainside left an indelible mark on all of us, said Bud Moore, whose brother, Bill, was a tight end killed in the crash. The disbelief and totally lost feeling we all experienced was and still is a hurdle you never quite clear. You attempt it over and over again but you always seem to fall just a little short. We all struggled to find any kind of explanation. Then the next day 43 days after our horrible accident it happened again. It was a rainy, foggy Nov. 14 night when Marshalls chartered jet, returning from a game against East Carolina, went down short of the Tri-State Airport runway. The plane burst into flames, leaving a charred swath of trees in what remains the deadliest crash involving a sports team in U.S. history. Both schools lost their athletic directors, head coaches and so many bright futures. Those very challenging days 48 years ago ring clearly in both our universities every day, Moore said. For me, it was a time of total confusion, looking for an answer was next to impossible. Jim Rhatigan was watching television in his Wichita home when the schools dean of students saw a news flash about the Marshall crash. He tracked down his counterpart at the school, Constantine Curris, and offered his insight on how his own school had dealt with the crash. They discussed grief counseling and support services. They talked about a memorial that was being planned at Wichita State, and one that Curris would eventually plan at Marshall. I knew some things we had done very well in connection with our crash, and some things wed done not so well, having had no practice or experience with this, Rhatigan said. I was able to help him a great deal. We never did meet in the real sense, but I feel like we were connected for life. Just as the schools were bonded forever. The very fact that he reached out, and was someone who had experienced what we were experiencing, gave us a lot of comfort as we thought about what we needed to do or what we could do given the extraordinary grief that swallowed the campus and the community, said Curris, who went on to become the president at Murray State, Northern Iowa and Clemson. Marshall assistant coach Red Dawson, one of the figures in the Hollywood film We Are Marshall detailing the crash, had driven to the East Carolina game because of a recruiting trip. He was heading home when he learned that the Thundering Herds plane had crashed.Wichita State, Marshall meet 48 years after horrific plane crash. COLLEGE BASKETBALL
