By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comThe seven-foot-tall fence the city wants to build on airport property will worsen the deer problem officials claimed to have, and it isnt even up to par with Federal Aviation Administration recommendations, FGC President Larry Barrett told city councilors Monday evening. Barrett asked the council to oppose the fence, linking it to a plan to cut down trees on airport property that he says will endanger the college. The council was voting on a fencing contract for $195,000 on top of an already approved $25,000 engineering contract.

Philippians 4:7 Sincerely, e Owens Family feel incredibly blessed to be surrounded by family, friends, classmates, co-workers, and acquaintances to help soothe our sorrow in Glen Springs Road Church of Christ, Gainesville, FL median sale price and average sale price have gone up. The summary showed a 58.4 percent increase in the median sale price from $113,000 in Feb. 2017 to $179,000 in Feb. 2018, and an average sale price spike of roughly 41 percent from $129,857 last year to $183,268 last month. However, Gherna said it was workforce housing, not the high-end luxury homes, with the greatest demand. Those tend to sell the fastest, Gherna said. People that want to buy want to jump on it right away. According to Florida Realtors this time last year it was a buyers market, meaning more time to shop around and get the most for the money from sellers who were more inclined to bargain, as Gherna reads the numbers. This year, however, with a 15.4 percent decrease in active listings inventory, sellers have an upper hand on limited supply, which, as reflected in the median percent of original list price received, means closer to asking-price offers are being made by interested buyers. This is not the time to be sitting on the fence, this is the time to get in the game, Gherna said. This is a good time for somebody thats got a home thats worth $150,000160,000, they want to become a move-up buyer and get into something a little bit better. He profiled the homes going quickly theyre 10-20 years old and in good shape. Youll be able to sell it pretty quickly and you can still get a good deal on a $200,000 $300,000 home, he said. Gherna mentioned the upcoming 2018 Parade of Homes on the weekend of April 28-29 as prime time to see different homes for sale in the area. Were very happy for consumers to see whats on the market with the Parade of Homes, he said. HOUSINGContinued From 1A the case. The original warrant was for theft. She was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility on $16,000 bond but has since been released. Stephanie Williams, 35, of NW Pillsbury Drive, was arrested on a warrant for failure to appear and giving a false name to a law enforcement officer. According to Columbia County Sheriffs Office reports, around 12:36 p.m. on Friday, deputy Christopher Alford saw Mauro driving on Southwest Tustenuggee Avenue and he remembered there was an active warrant for her arrest. Alford pulled the vehicle over and Mauro handed him her drivers license. Dispatch confirmed the active warrant on Mauro and she was handcuffed and searched. The deputy reported finding a glass pipe in Mauros right front pocket during the search and she said she used it to smoke methamphetamine, the report said. The passenger told the deputy she did not have a license and that her name was Stacy Williams. Another deputy arrived at the scene and handcuffed the woman, at which point she admitted her real name was Stephanie Williams. Dispatch confirmed that Stephanie Williams had an active warrant and she was arrested. When deputies were searching the car, they reportedly found a small electronic scale commonly used for weighing drugs on the front passenger side floorboard. Alford told the women they should say whether they had any illegal drugs on them because its a felony to bring contraband into a jail. However, while at the Columbia County Detention Facility, while Mauro was going through processing, an officer found two, small, clear plastic baggies in the left side of her bra, the report said. One of the baggies later field tested positive for methamphetamine while the other bag contained 10 pills of alprazolam, which is generic for Xanax. MAUROContinued From 1A Little left to mark soldiers sacrificeBy COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comThe search for a photograph of a Lake City man killed near the height of the Vietnam war continues, but as options are exhausted the outcome of the community-wide effort grows bleak. PFC Eugene McCray is the last of six men from Columbia County who died in the war and whose photographs were sought to show the faces of the roughly 58,319 names engraved on the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C. Any photograph bearing the image of Eugene McCray, however, may be lost to time as a lasting legacy of Jim Crow Era school segregation policies. That pattern is what the president of Alachua 1092 Chapter of the Vietnam Veterans of America, Forest Hope, said he found when he set out to locate nearly 800 photographs for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund Wall of Faces, now more than two years ago. We started off with 770 photos that we needed throughout the state of Florida. Were down to less than 60 now and Mr. McCray [is] one of them, said Hope. He said there was something held in common among the hard to find and missing photographs of the remaining men. Most of them are very much like Mr. McCray. Mr. McCray is African American. This happened right at the time of integration and the black schools closed, so finding yearbooks from that period of time for a black soldier is very, very difficult, Hope said. In some cases the school boards just threw them away That is kind of the pattern were finding. Several figures throughout the Lake City area joined the search to locate any surviving photographic records of McCray. Community leaders, city records officials, school board archivists and museum curators have set out to find relatives or classmates so far, however, theyve only reached dead ends. Hope said through his efforts he learned McCray attended the former Richardson High School, now Richardson Community Center. Through local sources, he found that McCray had no surviving siblings and efforts to reach any potential classmates were fruitless. No one had [a] yearbook, Hope said. Brandy McGhin is a permit technician at the city of Lake Citys Growth Management department. She said she was approached by residents seeking cemetery records in hopes of learning more about McCray. After sifting through city records, she said she set out on her own and walked a couple of cemeteries, finding graves of the same last name but nothing that would aid their efforts. She took to social media as well, hoping to find someone with information that might lead to a photograph. I was really wanting him to be found so he could be recognized, McGhin said. A search for McCray on The Wall of Faces, at vvmf.org, lists his county of record as Columbia and his home as Lake City. His branch of service was the U.S. Army and his rank was private first class. The project provides a digital wall of biographical information and photographs to complement the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington DC. Eugene McCray is found on row 17E, line 112, among the roughly 58,318 names engraved there. Further information found in state archive records show that his remains were recovered, though his place of death was not listed. McCray whose life, likeness and place of death seem lost to history, might serve as Columbia Countys only known unknown soldier. FENCEContinued From 1A CARL MCKINNEY/Lake City ReporterLawrence Barrett, president of FGC, addresses the Lake City Council Monday night about a fence airport officials wish to erect.The seven-foot-tall fence would enclose roughly 10 acres of woods, he said. In a phone interview, Barrett told the Lake City Reporter that enclosing the woods would make it a more attractive habitat for deer and other wildlife giving the city justification to cut down the trees. This makes no sense, he told council members. It would enhance the alleged wildlife and security issue the city is having. The FAA recommends a 10-foottall fence for the citys purposes, Barrett said during the meeting. Barrett called spending that much money for a fence that does not meet standards question able. Airport Manager Roland Luster said the project will be funded in full by a grant from the Florida Department of Transportation. City officials are planning to clear more than 133 acres of land at the airport. FGC has voiced its concerns on numerous occasions namely that removing the trees would worsen flooding issues on campus, among other issues. When city officials and FGC administration met earlier this year, the city claimed the FAA was requiring them to cut the trees to control the deer population, Barrett said. We were led to believe the FAA was initiating these decisions and telling the city what needed to be done, Barrett said. It is apparent that the city management misunderstood or misrepresented the project publicly and in private. After Barrett encouraged the city to hold off on the fence plan for now, the council complied with the request and with the support of City Manager Wendell Johnson tabled the matter.T his makes no sense , Barrett told council members. It would enhance the alleged wildlife and security issue the city is having.

By JOE REEDYAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE Cierra Dillard scored 22 points and 11th-seeded Buffalo shocked No. 3 seed Florida State 86-65 on Monday night to advance to the Sweet 16 of the womens NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history. The Bulls, who were one of the last four to earn an at-large berth in the 64-team field, shot 47.4 percent from the field and went 24 of 26 from the foul line. They also held the Seminoles to 3 of 25 on 3-pointers and 33.8 percent from the field. Buffalo (29-5) wont have far to go for the regional semifinal as it will face defending champion and second-seeded South Carolina on Saturday in Albany, New York. It is the first time that in eight games that Florida State (26-7) has dropped an NCAA Tournament contest when it has been the host. Buffalo seized control late in the first half. The game was tied at 28 with 2:05 remaining when the Bulls closed the half with a 10-2 run, including eight straight points by Dillard, to take a 39-30 lead at halftime. The Bulls would then extend the lead to 14 with a 7-2 run to start the third quarter. They would lead by as many as 14 early in the fourth quarter. Stephanie Reid scored 18 points and Summer Hemphill added 17 for Buffalo, which is unbeaten this Buffalo in Sweet 16 after upsetting FSUBulls hold Seminoles to 3 of 25 from deep.COURTESYBuffalos Stephanie Reid cuts between FSUs Chatrice White and AJ Alix as she attempts a shot during Mondays game. FILEColumbia guard Renee Clines drives through the lane against Suwannee earlier this past season. By STEVEN WINEAssociated PressKEY BISCAYNE It has never happened before: an opening-round match pitting a player who just won her first tennis title against a 23-time Grand Slam champion. Naomi Osaka, a rising star who won Indian Wells on Sunday, will face Serena Williams in the first round of the Miami Open on Wednesday. Its a freakishly difficult way for both players to start a tournament. The luck of the draw, tournament director James Blake said Monday. Its great in one sense we have an unbelievable blockbuster match for Wednesday. But one of them is going to be gone unfortunately by Thursday. The marquee matchup at the outset of the two-week tournament came about because neither player is seeded. Osaka is ranked a career-best No. 22, while Williams is ranked No. 491 after becoming a mother and returning to the tour at following a layoff of more than a year. Osaka, a 20-year-old slugger from Japan, earned the biggest victory her career when she beat Daria Kasatkina 6-3, 6-2 in the Indian Wells final. Serena lost in the third round at Indian Wells to her sister Venus. An eight-time Key Biscayne champion, Serena enters the tournament as a wild card and has never faced Osaka. Well see a lot of heavy hitting, Blake said. Both of them hit the ball so big. There are a lot of story lines. How is Naomi going to react to winning her first big title? Theres the cross-country flight. Is she going to be nervous playing Serena now that expectations are higher? But anyone who is counting Serena out, Blake said, is doing so at their peril. GIRLS BASKETBALL PLAYER OF THE YEAR GIRLS BASKETBALL PLAYER OF THE YEAR GIRLS BASKETBALL PLAYER OF THE YEAR GIRLS BASKETBALL PLAYER OF THE YEAR Aiming high By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comThe Lady Tigers took their lumps, finishing last season with only seven wins. But Columbia returned to the hardwood united and more determined this past winter. This season the Lady Tigers tallied 15 wins, most in nearly a decade, revitalizing a girls basketball program that had fallen on hard times. A handful of players played key roles in the rejuvenating season, but none more than star guard Renee Clines. She had a whole lot to do with it, Columbia coach Anthony Perry said of Clines impact. She grew up a lot this year too. She was one of the catalyst for the program this year. And shes still emerging as one of our leaders. Shes dynamic. Clines was dynamic in anchoring her team, leading the Lady Tigers in points (18.4) and steals (7.7). The sophomore standout cemented herself as the teams go-to scorer while steering Columbia to a district semifinal appearance this past season. Her scoring prowess and unyielding leadership was enough to be named the Lake City Reporters Girls Basketball Player of the Year. Clines credits the turnaround season to team chemistry, which has improved greatly from a year ago, she says. We had a better bond with the coaches and everything, she said. We did a lot more stuff together. Clines this season carried the Lady Tigers to some big wins over reputable teams including She led the county in scoring with 18.7 points per game. She was also sec ond on the Lady Indians, averaging 1.5 steals a night for Fort White. She was the best post player in the county, aver aging a double-double per game with 14.5 points and 10.2 rebounds. Aubrey Callum Fort White Guard Quianna Dillard Columbia Forward An allaround player for Columbia at point guard. She stuffed the stat sheet with a county-best 5.4 assists as well as 5.4 points and 4.2 steals per game. She was second on the Lady Indians in scoring with 7.9 points per game.

He had just finished his pro-am round at Bay Hill and was about to walk out of the tunnel leading from the 18th green when a man asked him for a picture. McIlroy obliged, because he usually does. But this was different. The man handed him a black bolero hat and told McIlroy it was from his squadron when he served in Vietnam. He didnt want a selfie with McIlroy. He wanted a picture of McIlroy wearing the hat that meant so much to him. The hat looked awkward on him with golfing attire, but McIlroy didnt mind. Its all about giving the fans what they want. Then the 28-year-old from Northern Ireland gave them something even better with what McIlroy described as a perfect round of golf, certainly the closing stretch. He birdied five of the last six holes, capping it off with a 25-foot putt on the 18th hole to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational. That ended his longest drought without a victory in eight years, and it cast him in a new light with the Masters approaching. McIlroy had fallen to No. 13 in the world when he missed the cut the previous week at the Valspar Championship, his second missed cut in four PGA Tour events this year. He had not been that low in the ranking since April 25, 2010. Its not that he was forgotten; rather, attention was shifting to so many others that it was easy to feel overlooked. All it took was one victory for the conversation to include his bid for a green jacket to complete the career Grand Slam. Its huge for my confidence going into the next few weeks, McIlroy said. I kept saying I didnt need a win going into Augusta to feel like I had a chance. I just wanted to see signs of good golf. And thankfully, Ive been able to get both. Just dont get the idea his confidence was lagging. McIlroy always says that when hes playing well, its hard to remember ever playing poorly. And when hes playing poorly, its hard to remember what it was like to RORY continued on 6A A5

The Tigers are coming off a 7-6 win over Atlantic Coast on Saturday. Columbias Sammy Walker (right) sags off the base pad during the weekend tilt. play well. But he has a history of going through spurts of mediocrity, and coming out of it strong without notice. Most memorable was in 2012 when he missed the cut four times in five tournaments. Two months later, he won the PGA Championship and consecutive FedEx Cup playoff events. Three times in his career, McIlroy has won in his next start after missing the cut. Five other times, he won after finishing out of the top 30. Thats why he wasnt the least bit concerned after missing the cut at the Valspar Championship. Its such a fine line out here, and I might have sounded crazy the last few weeks when I was telling everyone it actually feels pretty close and Im not that far away, and Im putting up 72s and 73s, he said. And all of a sudden, it all clicks into place and I end up winning a golf tournament by three shots and shooting 8 under on the last day. So its fine lines out here. I think you have to play the game to really appreciate that. Its not as black and white as some people make it out to be. He could think of only one time he was genuinely worried about his game. McIlroy was 19 and in his first full year as a pro in 2008. He had only two top 10s all year on the European Tour. He wasnt eligible for any of the majors. He had missed three straight cuts in Sweden, Holland and Scotland. He was concerned he might lose his card. And then he lost in a playoff in Switzerland, lost in another playoff in Hong Kong and won his first pro event early in the next year. And I was off and running, he said. McIlroy reached No. 50 with that playoff loss in Hong Kong, and he hasnt fallen out since then. Hes had a few dips, sure, but its not as if Ive had to panic. Palmer and McIlroy share one other connection, at least for now. They are one leg short of the Grand Slam. Palmer never won the PGA Championship. McIlroy needs the Masters. When they had dinner at Bay Hill in 2015 right before McIlroys first crack at the fourth leg of the slam the topic never came up. Its amazing to think, all that Arnold did in the game, he never won that Grand Slam, McIlroy said. McIlroy at the Masters, Phil Mickelson at the U.S. Open and Jordan Spieth at the PGA Championship each have a chance at the career slam this year. Im glad to be part of that conversation, get the first shot at it in a few weeks, McIlroy said. So well see how we go. His game is never far away, even if it doesnt look like it at times.COURTESYRory McIlroy, of Northern Ireland, celebrates after making a birdie on the 18th green during the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

T UESDAY, MARCH 20, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER 7A By GENARO C. ARMASAssociated PressOne word succinctly describes whats transpired so far in the NCAA Tournament: Madness. But even thats probably underselling it. A comeback for the ages by Nevada. An entire region left without a Top 4 seed in the Sweet 16 for the first time in tourney history. The 16-seed winner UMBC, falling short in its attempt to extend its historic run as underdog darlings. Oh, and defending national champion North Carolina is out, routed in its own state by Texas A&M. And that was just on Sunday. When No. 1 seed Xavier was bounced, too. A memorable, zany first two rounds even by March Madness standards set up what could be another wild two weekends in a tournament where anything can become reality. Its what makes March Madness special and it kills the coaches because its so hard and you think you have a great team, Kansas State coach Bruce Weber said. Its March Madness and you never know whats going to happen. Before the first tipoff on Thursday, many prognosticators had deemed this tournament one of the most wideopen in recent history. Its turned into a nutty, once-in-a-generation kind of ride. Loyola-Chicago won two thrillers to get to the Sweet 16, making a social media star out of their 98-year-old chaplain, Sister Jean. And then the telegenic nun who provides her own scouting reports to players got overshadowed by the ultimate Cinderella team. The UMBC Retrievers became the first No. 16 seed in the history of the mens tournament to beat a No. 1 seed, defeating Virginia in the first round Friday night. By 20 points. Over the top overall seed and the unanimous No. 1 team in the AP poll. The Retrievers run came to an end on Sunday night in a 50-43 loss to ninth-seeded Kansas State, but not before tattooing a lasting imprint on American sports, drawing attention from stars of the NFL, NBA and Twitch and love from underdogs everywhere. We put our name on the map. We (gave) hope to teams that come to the tournament with lower seeds, guard K.J. Maura said. UMBCs success story contributed to the messy, unprecedentedly jumbled bracket in the South Region, where the highest-remaining seed is No. 5 Kentucky. Its the first time in tourney history that a regional semifinal will be held without a top 4 seed, according to the NCAA. Seventh-seeded Nevada added to that by matching the second-biggest comeback in tournament history to beat No. 2 seed Cincinnati 75-73 after trailing by 22 points in the second half. That locker room right now, Ive never seen anything like it in my life. Its the happiest Ive ever seen. Its the happiest Ive ever been in my life, Wolf Pack coach Eric Musselman said. The way reigning champion North Carolina got bounced from the tournament in an 86-65 loss to Texas A&M might have been the top storyline on any other tournament day. It left coach Roy Williams with the most lopsided tournament loss of his Hall of Fame career. It was also the second straight year the titleholder lost before the Sweet 16. And it happened in UNC-friendly territory in Charlotte, North Carolina, where the Tar Heels hadnt lost a tourney game since 1979. I didnt picture it ending it like this, said Williams with his players sitting nearby. I pictured it ending with these guys having a huge smile on their face, but thats not college basketball. WHOS LEFT: A look at the teams and matchups for the Sweet 16 by region. South: No. 5 Kentucky vs. No. 9 Kansas State; No. 7 Nevada vs. No. 11 Loyola-Chicago. West: No. 4 Gonzaga vs. No. 9 Florida State; No. 3 Michigan vs. No. 7 Texas A&M Midwest: No. 1 Kansas vs. No. 5 Clemson; No. 2 Duke vs. No. 11 Syracuse East: No. 1 Villanova vs. No. 5 West Virginia; No. 2 Purdue vs. No. 3 Texas Tech. CALL IT A COMEBACK: Nevadas comeback from a 22-point deficit matched Dukes rally after beating Maryland in the 2001 Final Four. The biggest comeback belongs to BYU, which trailed by 25 points before beating Iona in the 2012 First Four. GLASS SLIPPERS IN SOUTH: What a mess in the underdog-laden South. The top four seeds No. 1 Virginia, No. 2 Cincinnati, No. 3 Tennessee and No. 4 Arizona are all done. You know, just obviously we didnt think 16 was going to ... beat a 1, Weber said. You thought it would be a little different situation, but we just said we could write history tonight. No 9 has ever beaten a 16 to go to the Sweet 16, so we wrote our own history tonight. SPOILED HOME COOKIN: Dont invite Texas A&M and Syracuse to homecoming parties. The Aggies manhandled North Carolina in Charlotte in surprisingly easy fashion to get to the round of 16 for the second time in three seasons. After holding a 47-36 edge on the glass, Texas A&M should scare a Michigan team that has had to slog through two victories and deliver a buzzer-beater 3 to get to the Sweet 16. In Detroit, Syracuse tuned out the noise from a Michigan State-partisan crowd for a 55-53 win The Oranges trademark 2-3 zone gave another unfamiliar opponent fits after holding the more talented Spartans to 26 percent shooting. An NCAA tourney run that started with the First Four in Dayton for Syracuse will continue against Duke in the Sweet 16 in Omaha, Nebraska. TWO ONES ARE DONE: Two No. 1 seeds didnt make it out of the tournaments opening weekend for the first time since 2004, when Stanford and Kentucky both lost in the second round. This time around, Virginia and Xavier were the top seeds that were bounced. The Cavaliers went home on Friday after the historic loss to No. 16 seed UMBC. The Musketeers gave up a 12-point lead on Sunday and fell to Florida State, 75-70. It was a disappointing ending for a program that returned four starters from a team that lost in the Elite Eight last year to Gonzaga. The only other years when two top seeds lost in the first weekend were 1981 and 2000.What. Just. Happened?!

BIG PICTURE Buffalo: Two days after getting their first NCAA Tournament win over South Florida, the Bulls are the first MAC team since Bowling Green in 2007 to advance to the Sweet 16. They were joined moments later by MAC rival Central Michigan which knocked off Ohio State also as an 11-seed. Florida State: The Seminoles were hoping to make their fourth straight Sweet 16 performance but were unable to control the pace of the game.

NOLESContinued From 5ACOURTESYBuffalos Summer Hemphill cuts between two Florida State defenders during the NCAA tournament matchup Saturday night. Michigan States crisis affected Tom Izzo and his programBy LARRY LAGEAssociated PressDETROIT Tom Izzo walked into his final news conference before a game this season and saw Michigan States interim president conducting interviews. The Hall of Fame coach sat down and gazed toward the back of the room, essentially expressionless, as John Engler was with a handful of reporters. Izzo had plenty on his plate at the time, trying to prepare the third-seeded Spartans for Syracuse. Izzo wasnt particularly concerned with the conversations Engler was having with a handful of reporters and said he wasnt bothered by it, figuring he was there to show his support. But it was another sign, showing the crisis on campus related to Larry Nassar has affected Izzo and his basketball program. And perhaps the next sign played out for all to see in Sunday afternoon when the 11th-seeded Syracuse eliminated Michigan State with a 55-53 win in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Sunday. The toll of the turbulent season likely led to Izzo tearing up as he talked about perhaps the toughest season of his career when it seemed set up to potentially end with his second national championship. While an ESPN report raised questions about how Izzo and Michigan State football coach handled sexual assault allegations within their program, their faces were on display on a TV set alongside Nassar, a former doctor at the school, who was sentenced to decades in prison for molesting young women and girls under the guise of medical treatment. As part of the fallout, Lou Anna Simon resigned as school president and Mark Hollis, who is very close to Izzo, retired. Izzo felt compelled to tell his team before a game he wasnt going anywhere as questions swirled about who might also be caught up in the wake of the scandal. Instead of being frank at news conferences, Izzo repeatedly said he always cooperated with investigations and always would relating to allegations made against his players. He would grit his teeth and stayed largely silent when pressed with non-basketball questions at postgame news conferences. The usually frank coach appeared to be in a no-win situation, getting criticized for not addressing allegations made in ESPN reporting and knowing he probably wouldnt have all the answers wanted if he did choose to say more. Miles Bridges, meanwhile, went from being hailed for staying in school instead of making millions in the NBA to being ruled ineligible briefly before the final regular season game. The school found out his family had a meal with an agent last winter without his knowledge, committing an NCAA violation. Bridges was reinstated and bounced back to play well at times, but the pressure of performing and the off-the-court issues may have had something to do with him missing 14 of 18 shots against the Orange. Everything that was thrown at us, we still had fun, Bridges said after what was likely his last college game. And, I love every guy thats on my team. Thats why Im so hurt right now. Freshman Jaren Jackson is projected to be a high pick even before Bridges if he chooses to leave college as expected. The Spartans may have three juniors to depend on next season led by point guard Cassius Winston, shooting guard Joshua Langford and forward Nick Ward along with seniors Matt McQuaid and Kenny Goins. Xavier Tillman worked his way into the lineup as a freshman and next years class will have plenty of opportunities to play. Michigan State signed five standouts in November: Six-foot point guard Foster Loyer, Michigans Mr. Basketball; 6-10 forward Marcus Bingham Jr., 6-7 forward Gabe Brown and 6-8 forward Thomas Kithier. Izzo insisted he will be back for a 24th season as coach to help the school and community bounce back even though he could probably land an NBA job if he wanted one after turning down at least a couple offers to jump to the league in the past. I took too many bullets this year not to be here, he said. So, Ill be here and well be back knocking to win a championship. By this time next year, though, Michigan State may not be in the clear and the lingering effects could continue to carry over onto the basketball program. Between Michigan States NCAA Tournament games, Engler was talking to reporters about his desire to reach a financial settlement with Nassars victims, adding the passage of sweeping child abuse legislation in the state is interfering with the process. State Attorney General Bill Schuette is reviewing how Michigan State handled the allegations against Nassar and the candidate for governor said the investigation would put a bright light on every corner of the university. Even though his title is basketball coach, Izzo is a leader on campus and vows to stay to help it heal. If somebody would give me a chance to bring Michigan State back, I cant think of anything I would rather do, Izzo said. I think its been punched and kicked. Some of it for mistakes, rightfully so. Some of them, not rightfully so. Im going to be hopefully part of the solution, not part of the problem.COURTESYMSU coach Tom Izzo told his team before the game that hes staying. A7

LAKECITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICSTUESDAY, MARCH 20, 2018 A8 DEAR ABBY: I have been married 14 years and have two children. The first three years of marriage were great. We both cared for and respected each other. As our children grew older and our jobs have become more demanding, my husband has changed about how he views our sex life. After our third year of marriage, my husband started raping me. No one knows this except an ex-sister-in-law. At first, I didnt understand what was really happening. He was forceful and wouldnt take no for an answer. I went along with it at first, thinking I wasnt giving him enough attention and was doing the wifely duty. But over the years it has become worse -ripping my clothing off and holding me down. I have told him its not OK, but if I speak up, it leads to a fight. He says I dont show him I care for him and we dont have sex enough, so this is his way of getting it. Abby, I have lost respect for the man I married. I no longer want to be intimate with him, because he doesnt respect me or my body. The only reason I have stayed this long is for my children. Is there hope in him changing? -SLEEPING ON THE COUCH DEAR SLEEPING ON THE COUCH: Ripping a spouses clothing off and holding her (or him) down is not foreplay; it is spousal rape and a form of domestic abuse. It is a crime in all 50 states. The level of hostility in your home isnt healthy for you or your children, who may grow up thinking it is normal. Because your husband may become violent if you tell him the marriage is over, contact RAINN -(800) 656-4673; rainn.org -and let them help you form a safe escape plan. It is not normal for a man to treat a woman the way your husband has. He is unlikely to change, and you need to look out for yourself and the children. DEAR ABBY: My wife is in her 30s. Shes a beautiful woman and a wonderful mother to our three children, and my soul mate. Weve been married 10 years. She has many qualities I love and admire, but also one that causes me serious concern: her slouchy posture. She slouched a little when we married, but her posture has worsened dramatically since then. We have spent thousands of dollars on personal trainers, massage and chiropractic. When we (infrequently) quarrel, she unconsciously slouches more, which drives me crazy. Shes willing to see professional medical practitioners, but is unwilling to accept any responsibility for it. I cant bring it up without her getting bristly and defensive, but its getting worse every year. Its also taking a toll on our relationship. Id appreciate any advice you could share. -DESPERATE FOR STRAIGHT TALK DEAR DESPERATE: If your wifes posture is the only thing about her that causes you serious concern, you are a lucky man. Believe me when I tell you I have been told far worse. Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com 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): Stay focused on what's expected of you. Once you deliver, you will be free to expand into areas of interest that will allow you to display what you have to offer. Stick to your plan. Don't hold back. Do your thing. T AURUS (April 20-May 20): Share your findings and be willing to not only speak about what you know but show others exactly how you arrived at your findings. Representing something or someone you believe in will encourage a better future. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don't overlook a document or financial statement that can change the dynamics of what you owe in taxes or other debts you've incurred. Stay on top of what you owe, what you've spent and how your money best serves you. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Discuss your plans and listen to suggestions and advice. A partnership may not be a bad idea if you lay down ground rules before you begin. Allowing every one to do what he or she does best will lead to success. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You have plenty to gain. Gather information and offer kindness and solutions to those facing difficulties. What's offered in return will give you the boost you need to get ahead. Don't be surprised if someone isn't pleased with your success. VIR GO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A business trip or meeting will give you the push you need to pursue something you've been mulling over for some time. Find out how much of an investment you have to make to get what you want. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Look for a way to cut your costs or to deal with home-related matters reasonably. Settlements need to be dealt with fairly and with everyone involved in mind. Anger solves nothing, but well-thoughtout solutions will allow you to move forward. SC ORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You don't have to copy others. Offer your own version of what you feel is happening and you will make a statement that will influence many. Passionate persistence will pay off and bring about change. Live life your way. SA GITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The changes you want to make at home or to you personally can be put into play as long as you are open regarding your plans and you have legitimate answers to the questions that will arise should someone inquire about your motives. CAPRIC ORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You will have difficulties dealing with people who show no restraint or discipline. Stick to your rules and live within your means regardless of temptation. Protect your home, possessions and important relationships against anyone trying to undermine you. A QUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Whatever you want to accomplish, do so using your own steam. Too much outside help and interference will taint what you are trying to achieve. A slower pace and going it alone will bring higher returns as well as additional confidence. P ISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Put some muscle behind what it is you want to accomplish. Added discipline will help you reach your goal. Getting angry or letting someone distract you will be your downfall. Stay focused and you'll claim victory. Choose to get along. Actor Hal Linden is 85. Country singer Don Edwards is 77.

Her buzzer-beater on Dec.5 helped edge their longtime rival, defeating the rival Lady Hurricanes for the first time since 2009. That was the best part of the season, Clines said. Beating Gainesville looked really good for us. They never thought that CHS girls could ever beat GHS. Clines polished her jump shot over the offseason last year. And it made all the difference as her production increased in her second season with Columbia. She proved to be the Lady Tigers greatest scoring threat an isolation specialist. I think she improved on her shooting, Perry said. I think shes a little bit better of a shooter than last year. We put in a lot of work in. And when she gets going, shes pretty tough to stopIts something I got to get used to because shell want to step up [offensively] all the time. The other girls that are capable take their time about getting hot. [Clines] doesnt take any time at all. She wants to do it. Her offensive ability turned heads this season, but the strides she made on defense propelled the Lady Tigers to easy buckets in transition. Clines uncanny knack for coming up with steals gave opposing ball-handlers headaches game after game. I think thats her favorite part, Perry said. In transition, she likes to have an opportunity to score. The steals came from [me] hammering everybody to play solid defense. The skill of being able to anticipate a pass or cause a disruption getting a hand in the passing lane those little things like that she bought into real quick. Clines says her goal in the next two years is to bring a district title back to Columbia. And her coach believes she has all the tools to lead the Lady Tigers to more success. Perry says if she continues to elevate her game, she wont just be regarded as the best in the county, but one of the best in the North Florida area. She should be in the same class as those [all-state] girls. I told her my expectations for you is to score 25 points and be steady on defense every time you touch the floor. No matter who you play, no matter where you play. Its just getting her to be consistent at a high level. And I want her to keep learning, and pushing herself.. I want her to understand that she has no celling. Shes getting there.FILE PHOTOSColumbia guard Renee Clines starred on offense and defense for the Lady Tigers this past season.
