See 4A.By CHRISTINE SEXTONThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott signed 74 bills into law on Friday, including a tax package and a measure that declares the Legislatures intent to observe daylight-saving time year-round. The tax package (HB 7087), which totals about $171 million in tax and fee cuts, authorizes a three-day tax holiday in early August that will allow back-toschool shoppers to buy clothes and school supplies without paying sales taxes. Also, the bill will lead to a similar seven-day holiday in early June for residents to buy tax-free hurricane supplies. The bill also includes tax breaks for farmers and ranchers who suffered damage in Hurricane Irma and trims a commercial-lease tax paid by many businesses. Other parts of the package include a property-tax break for homeowners displaced by Hurricane Irma and a break for nursing homes and assisted living facilities that purchase electric generators. The Daylight Saving Time bill (HB 1013) drew widespread attention during the legislative session. It expresses the Legislatures support for Daylight saving bill requires federal OK.Search for photo appears to have ended, 5AAlso in todays Reporter: Airport trees back on city agenda Contraband curtails prison visits Scott signs permanent DST billBELOW & INSIDE SCOTT continued on 6A Lake Citys Only Family Owned and Operated New Car Dealership 386-752-2180www.RONSONET.com No guns at schools for now Carswell opts for deputies rather than armed teachers and coaches.By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comArmed school employees wont be patrolling the halls and classrooms of Columbia High School any time soon.

UWSV promotes life-saving CPR training for residentsFrom staff reportsLearn CPR and save lives. United Way of Suwannee Valley is partnering with various organizations throughout Columbia, Hamilton, Lafayette and Suwannee Counties to provide CPR classes to local residents. The program is one of several initiatives the United Way Planning Committee elected to undertake using funds received through an anonymous grant. The Planning Committee determined to direct grant funding to support initiatives designed to address goals in the County Heath Improvement Plans. CPR Anytime is a self-directed, self-paced training program that provides participants with the core skills of adult hands-only CPR in 22 minutes. United Way purchased 113 CPR Anytime kits to be distributed among 20 different organizations within the four counties. Participating community organizations include senior service centers, county extension office 4-H programs, the Pregnancy Care Center, Suwannee Valley 4Cs Head Start Program and churches in each of the four counties. Each kit comes with a bilingual watch-and-do DVD, a personal inflatable CPR manikin, a skills reminder card, a replacement lung, and manikin wipes. The kits are being used to educate members of the organizations who, in turn, will teach other organization participants, family members and friends in their communities. According to Florida Health, Billions of dollars are spent every year in the U.S. on medications that reduce the risk of heart disease the No.1 killer in Florida. Heart disease accounts for three out of 10 deaths in Florida, and in 2014 there were 42,835 heart attack hospitalizations, or an average of 117 heart attack hospitalizations each day. The CPR Anytime initiative supports the American Heart Association goal to increase the number of individuals in the U.S. with skills needed to perform CPR. CPR Anytime is flexible in that it can be used by individuals at home or multiple people in a small group setting. It is innovative; the proven-effective, self-directed watch-and-do format keeps people engaged in learning. It is effective, because kits are easy to share with family members and friends to increase the number of people who can perform CPR in an emergency. CPR Anytime is for anyone who wants to learn basic CPR skills, choking relief, and AED awareness and does not need a course completion card to meet a job requirement. A listing of those community partners which have already initiated their CPR Anytime program through their receipt of training and the training kits is available on the United Way of Suwannee Valley website at www.unitedwsv.org.More scenes from HOF visit Photos by COREY ARWOOD/Lake City Reporter COU RTESYFrom left are Michelle Maddox, Suwannee Valley 4Cs; Rita D opp executive direc tor, United Way of Suwannee Valley; and Trish Kline, intern serving as the United Way health projects coordinator.

The agenda item simply reads, Removal of trees on airport property without elaboration, and further explanation was unavailable when the agenda was released at 3:48 p.m. Friday. The controversy arose months back when neighboring Florida Gateway College learned of the plan and said flooding, already a serious problem at the campus, would be worsened by removal of the trees. City officials said they had been told to remove the trees by the FAA in order to destroy a habitat for deer, which pose a danger to aircraft during takeoff and landing. Emails obtained by the Lake City Reporter through a public records request show the FAA never ordered cutting the trees and told the city they would have to perform environmental studies before undertaking such a project. The city said it would do so, though it would take months or longer. During a City Council meeting on March 19, Airport Manager Roland Luster seemed to say patching a large hole in the airport perimeter fence had solved the deer problem. However, neither he nor City Manager Wendell Johnson would return phone calls or texts seeking an explanation. Also on the agenda for Tuesday is construction of a new airport perimeter fence. The Airport Advisory Committee meets at 5 p.m. at City Hall. The meeting is open to the public. March 16 that there would be no weekend visitation at the SCI work camp and other facilities, including Hamilton Correctional Institution. The secure operations of our correctional institutions is our chief priority, FDOC spokesperson Michelle Glady said in a statement. We have zero tolerance for inmate misconduct or the introduction of contraband into our secure facilities. We are taking proactive measures to ensure these institutions can continue normal operations and that the safety of staff and inmates can be upheld. We look forward to resuming normal visitation as quickly as possible. Canceling visitation allows staff resources to be devoted to institutional searches, further eradicating contraband and ensuring the safety of inmates, staff and the public, Glady continued. Normal visitation is scheduled to resume next week. In recent memory, there have been numerous cases of contraband smuggling not only at SCI, but Columbia Correctional Institution and Hamilton Correctional Institution as well. In February, SCI guard David James Neveils, a 26-year-old from Lake City, was arrested for smuggling synthetic marijuana, cell phones and other contraband into SCI in exchange for money, according to FDOC. Also in February, HCI guard Ray Ryan Cone, 22, was arrested on bribery charges after investigators were told he struck a deal with an inmate to smuggle cigarettes into the facility. In late January, guards caught 60-year-old Gertrude Virginia Mallicoat of Starke trying to smuggle prescription painkillers to her son in the Columbia Correctional Institution work camp, according to a Columbia County Sheriffs Office report. These cases are new, but the problem is not. In 2014, contraband flooded CCI, culminating in the bust of a wide-scale smuggling ring following the indictment of seven people over a scheme that involved two inmates shooting themselves so they could sue the state for failing to protect them. One of the inmates bragged on Instagram about selling a partial shipment of cell phones in the prison for $12,600, according to a probable cause affidavit. Shipments of cell phones and drugs were entering the prison about every two weeks, the affidavit said. Inmate David Billups, 26 at the time, sold the phones for $700 each, according to the affidavit. Billups and another inmate, Kirk Cartwright, 33 at the time, reportedly used their smuggling network to get a .25-caliber Beretta semi-automatic pistol into the prison to stage a shooting. The two men suffered gunshot wounds on March 22, claiming they were attacked by an unknown assailant. But authorities later determined the gunshot wounds were self-inflicted. PRISONSContinued From 1ACouples, singles and groups of friends ranging from millennials, baby boomers and both generations X and Y, were out sipping and socializing at The Gateway City Craft Beer and Wine Festival. Even kids and K9s were present, escorted by the hands and ropes of adults and owners enjoying themselves at the third such annual event organized by the Lake City and Columbia County Chamber of Commerce. It showcased as locally sourced and sold brews and wine varieties, some of which were from hometown heroes like Halpatter Brewing Company, while others bore the names of neighbors like High Springs Brewery. The event was first held in 2015 and each year Chamber Executive Director Dennille Decker said it had been fortunate to fall during good weather. With the early spring temperatures that felt more like early summer at this years, even the organizers seemed to have once more received a nod in their Dionysusapproved endeavor. Decker said the ticket sales benefited the Chamber and by the look of the abundant crowds lining the food trucks and beverage vendors, and those walking along the causeway that day, there was likely a high yield for the effort.

Tim Williams, whose longtime friend Brian Jennings was among the four people killed by affluenza teen Ethan Couchs drunken driving in 2013, forgave Couch long before their first jailhouse visit. Now, after meeting with him almost weekly for two years, Williams believes Couch will leave jail April 2 a different person. Formerly an immature, entitled and reckless teen, the 20-year-old has slowly become someone who wants to take responsibility, follow instructions, do the next right thing. Since his deadly joyride, Couch has too often made international news for all the wrong reasons. Whether he can turn his life around is an open question. But the bond that has developed between Williams and Couch offers authentic lessons in mercy, reconciliation and forgiveness. Williams first became friends with Brian Jennings when they were young teens at Crestmont Baptist Church in Burleson. They started college together at Howard Payne University. Each served as best man in the others wedding. Jennings unexpected death, amid the unspeakable carnage caused by 16-year-old Couch, devastated Williams. He struggled with questions about the injustice of it all, including the first judges decision to grant Couch probation. But, as Williams told us in an interview Thursday, I didnt want unforgiveness hanging on me like a set of heavy chains. So through prayer, he tried his mightiest to come to grips with the idea that this tragedy both the deaths and the shocking verdict could be turned on its head for good. As he healed, Williams, a former youth pastor, also worked as a volunteer chaplain in family court. Fast forward a couple of years, to 2016 when Couch finally faced real consequences: After breaking probation and fleeing to Mexico, he wound up sentenced to two years in jail. For reasons Williams didnt even understand himself, he experienced an intense internal calling to visit with Couch. That began an excruciatingly slow and oftentimes draining attempt to get Couch to open up. Williams describes it like this: If you imagine building a house with 20,000 bricks, one visit with Ethan might put two or three bricks in the wall. Among the work they did together was to focus on the Old Testament book of Nehemiah, with its instructions on rebuilding a broken life. Williams, the father of two sons and two stepsons, hasnt hesitated to provide parenting lessons he feels Couch needs to hear. Excuses, dishonesty and blame games dont cut it with the Mansfield resident. And they talked a lot about forgiveness, both in its biblical sense and Williams own change of heart toward Couch. Its tempting to paint Williams, who runs the Reconciliation Institute nonprofit, as a saint who has provided a measure of grace to an unsympathetic character. But none of us Williams included are naturally inclined to forgive. Blame and censure are far easier accessed. Thats what makes the continuing relationship between Ethan Couch and Tim Williams all the more inspiring, reminding the rest of us of the possibilities that come out of generous and merciful choices.For its advocates, abortion has often been framed as an implicit right. It is the right to agency over ones body. The right to make a medical decision without government involvement. Abortion, they have argued, has little to do with the nascent life whose fate lies in the balance. The unborn child is usually ancillary, unrelated and never the subject of these discussions. That makes it easier to paper over the violence being done to her, especially for abortion advocates who rightly sense their argument is morally impaired. But in recent years, something has shifted in the abortion debate, exemplified by the recent declaration that Iceland has used abortion to all but eliminate an entire population of people who possess a genetic abnormality. In the northern nation, 98 percent of unborn babies determined to have Down syndrome by genetic testing are aborted. Indeed, abortion is no longer perceived as safe and rare, a necessary evil, or even a personal medical decision, but an explicit right to end a person or an entire category of persons unworthy of life. The Washington Posts deputy opinion editor Ruth Marcus said as much in the lines of her column recently. Marcus wrote that had genetic testing revealed she was carrying a child with Down syndrome, I can say without hesitation that, tragic as it would have felt and ghastly as a second-trimester abortion would have been, I would have terminated those pregnancies had the testing come back positive. I would have grieved the loss and moved on. Why? That was not the child I wanted, she said bluntly. After her column was published, abortion advocates heralded Marcus for her bravery; abortion opponents derided her words as callous and shocking. But what Marcus said was not particularly brave or shocking. We live in a society where some people believe that certain humans are undeserving of their natural right to existence; and our laws enshrine the imagined right to enforce their belief on a vulnerable population. To these people, Down syndrome is as good a reason as any inconvenience, bad timing, financial distress to end a nascent childs life. The reason really doesnt matter when the end is always the same. Or does it? Many of Marcus critics have noted that her argument is tantamount to eugenics. As she describes it, a child with Down syndrome is one whose intellectual capacity will be impaired, whose life choices will be limited, whose health may be compromised. People with Down syndrome, Marcus continues, will have limited capacity for independent living and financial security. In fairness, so do plenty of millennials. But Marcus isnt just defending the right to terminate a pregnancy, she is justifying that right by essentially arguing that it can eliminate an undesirable class of people who existence, in her estimation, is burdensome to society. That reasoning would make the likes of Margaret Sanger and the architects of the Nazi Aktion T-4 program proud. Whats strange is that Marcus seems aware of the creepy, eugenic aspects of the new technology that enable parents to learn of their childs genetic makeup before birth and not only their potential for abnormalities. Its conceivable that in a matter of years, genetic testing will be able to tell us the odds that our children will be tall or short, fat or thin, gay or straight. Its hard to imagine progressives like Marcus defending a mother who chose to terminate a child that such testing identified as gay because that was not the child the mother wanted. Or a mother who aborts a child simply because the baby is a girl. But her insistence that our Constitution mandates these decisions be made by individual women and not the government means she should vigorously defend the destruction of any child whose existence would deviate from the norm or whose genetic destiny didnt fit her idea of what her child should be. By this logic, America has re-embraced the insidious idea that some classes of people are less than human.

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, Chairman OUR OPINIONBuckled down but going nowhereEconomic Development Director Glenn Hunter got better marks on his yearly evaluation this time around, scoring a 7 overall on a scale of 1 through 10. Thats a C by most standards, and a good sight better than the Fs hed been getting to date during his four-year tenure, the first two years of which he spent on probation. But its not nearly good enough. Hunters highest marks were for not for eco nomic-development aptitude, but for attendance, pr ojecting the county and administration in a positive manner, and working well with others. That last one means he hasnt threatened to hit any members of his Economic Development Advisory Board lately, as was the case just last year (an episode that merited Hunter his third suspension in four years on the job). Hunter has also had trouble getting along with two other major players in the economic devel opment picture locally, the president of Florida Gateway College and the city manager Neither is on the county payroll, but both were asked to weigh in on Hunters performance. The city managers assessment was the most telling. Without hesitation, I will submit that Glenn appears to have buckled down to business during the last year and seems to have found himself in the real world as an economic devel opment administrator, Wendell Johnson wrote. Thats a compliment, but just bar ely. Still, if it took Hunter three full years to buckle down and get to work after taking the job in 2014, it may explain some things. Namely his lack of production. During Hunters tenure he has managed to bring no career-track jobs to county residents, while the retail sector for which a private, out side firm deserves much of the credit goes wild. You cant raise a family on a retail salary anyway, as everyone knows. Our lone question is the one weve been asking for years now: Is anyone going to do what it takes to bring real jobs to county workers? We ask this, not of Hunter, but of his bosses, the five members of the County Commission Tim Murphy, Bucky Nash, Everett Phillips, Rusty DePratter, Ron Williams as well as County Manager Ben Scott and Assistant County Manager Scott Ward, Hunters immediate super visor.

Audrey Ann Schlimmer Audrey Ann (Prosch) Schlimmer passed from this life into eternal joy and glory with her Saviour and friend, Jesus Christ, on March 2nd, 2018, in her home near Lake City, Florida. Even throughout the personal struggles of her extended illness, her love of God, and her love and prayers for family, friends, and strangers alike, never ceased. She leaves a legacy of strength and love. Audrey was born the fourth of five children, to Donald and Leona (Kohler) Prosch on October 21, 1960, and grew up on the family farm near Lake Benton, MN. She graduated from Lake Benton High School in 1979. Pursuing her passion for hairstyling, she went on to Stewarts School of Hairstyling in Sioux Falls, SD.

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS: If you require special aid or services for the AUDREY E. SIKES, MMC City ClerkVietnam vet mystery may be solvedBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comAn exhaustive, two-year search in which citizens, school employees, military groups, local government employees, newspaper columnists and community members searched to find a picture of fallen Columbia County Vietnam veteran Eugene McCray may have ended Friday afternoon. Lelia Williams was able to track down a picture of Eugene McCray shortly after 4 p.m. Friday after offering a $100 reward earlier in the week to anyone who could produce a picture of McCray. The picture came from the home that belonged to McCrays mother. Williams got the photo from the person that is currently renting the house. I had been looking for a while, but I had been looking on the wrong side of town, Williams said. I was looking east of town with a different set of McCrays. While speaking to her cousin, Angie Ford, Williams learned about another set of McCrays that lived on the west side of town. Williams adjusted her search and spoke to the neighbor, Loretta Jackson, who called McCrays cousin that lives in Miami, who rents out the home. McCrays cousin told the renter to look through the McCray family pictures and they found the missing picture. I was so excited to find the picture because it happened so fast, Williams said, noting McCrays cousin in Miami was not aware anyone was searching for his picture until Thursday. God is just good. The Lord guided me in the right direction. Williams and McCray both attended Richardson High School during the segregation era she wanted to do her part for the fallen veteran. She said as she was leaving the McCray family home, another former student at the school, Jessie Caldwell, drove up and identified the man in the picture. He told me it was Frank Eugene McCray, Williams said, noting Caldwell remembered McCray as the kicker from the Richardson football team. All the time we were just looking for Eugene McCray. PFC Eugene McCray was a 20-year-old Lake City man who on April 6, 1967 died in an unknown province of Vietnam while fighting for the U.S. Army. McCrays name is on row 17E, line 112, among more than 58,000 names engraved on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington DC. The Wall of Faces, at vvmf.org, contains his biological information, rank and branch of service, but his picture is missing. Forest Hope, a Vietnam veteran from Alachua County, has been traveling to Lake City to track down pictures of fallen Columbia County Vietnam veterans so the pictures could be added to Virtual Vietnam Memorial Wall website for a visual representation. Hope, president of the Alachua 1902 Chapter of Vietnam Veterans of America, has spent the better part of two years searching for Columbia and surrounding counties Vietnam veterans pictures that were missing from the virtual wall. There were 777 names without faces for Floridas Vietnam veterans. Hope was originally tasked with finding pictures of six fallen Columbia County Vietnam veterans. The Lake City Reporter originally published a story April 28, 2016, where Hope was seeking help from the public in finding pictures. McCray was the last Columbia County veteran to be listed on the wall with no photograph. Dont tell me. Holy cow, were the first words out of Hopes mouth when he learned from the Lake City Reporter by phone Friday that the photo had been found. What a sweetheart. What an angel she is, Hope said of Williams efforts to find a picture of McCray. Hope said after the original story was published, people from several surrounding counties began to call him and they were able to get pictures of other fallen Vietnam veterans who didnt have their picture on the virtual wall. The Lake City Reporters story really helped out, he said. That tops it off. Lake City Reporter columnist Morris Williams last Sunday recounted the long search for McCrays photo. The Reporter ran a story on Tuesday calling further attention to the matter, followed by an editorial on Thursday, which prompt ed Williams to step up the search, she said. Another story ran Friday about Williams announcement of the $100 reward. Hope was relieved that the picture of McCray may be the last needed from Columbia County, but he said he was not going to abandon the search any time some. Im thrilled to death, he said. Its great. Now I feel like Ive done my job. Ive got my neighborhood [Alachua, Columbia, Suwanee and other surrounding counties] done now. Now Ill be concentrating over in Clay and Putnam counties. I knew it was just a matter of getting the word out to the right people. Hope said hell have to confirm that the photograph is in fact of McCray, but he wouldnt be able to start the process until he returned to his office Monday. If its the right person, Hope said the photo will be added to the virtual wall within a few days. Williams was looking to make a difference in the search for the missing picture. I guess the Lord laid it on my heart to find that picture, she said. COURTESYPFC Frank Eugene McCray Photo of Eugene McCray appears to have been found.

The states minimum requirements are fairly hefty, and the decision on whether to implement it is ultimately in the hands of local sheriffs and school districts. Carswell said hes also waiting for more input from the districts insurance providers, the Florida Department of Education, risk management professionals and attorneys. We dont think that the liability insurance is going to allow it, he said. Only classroom teachers with law enforcement experience can volunteer for the program. Otherwise, an eligible employee must have duties outside the classroom coaches, for example. At Eastside Elementary School, there are about 10 people who qualify, Carswell said. It still concerns me that we would arm our educators, he said. Were educators, and thats my whole thing with all of this. In all likelihood, a school shooter probably wouldnt be a random stranger, Carswell said. Guardians will have to be mentally prepared to make a tough choice every time they strap a gun around their ankle in the morning. Its not just a matter of being Rambo out there in the fields shooting bad people, he said. You might have to shoot someone that was in your class the day before. Thats why its got to be very cautiously looked at and very cautiously developed and planned and trained and worked through the right way. In the past several months, multiple reports have surfaced of Columbia County students making jokes about shooting up the place, Carswell said. Weve looked into every one of those, he said. Usually its a he-saidshe-said situation and the student denies making inappropriate comments, Carswell said, but school officials take each accusation seriously. Addressing those situations takes careful consideration. You cant just kick them out of the school, he said. The district is working on a mental health pipeline. In January, before the Parkland shooting made the news, the district launched its I am listening campaign to encourage employees to reach out to students. It could be a custodian that just befriends a kid on campus, he said. Were not doing it perfectly, but we believe having every employee willing to listen to students is the first step. When an employee sees signs of trouble, they can refer the student to a guidance counselor, who can then send the student to one of the districts five licensed mental health professionals. It costs about $300,000 per year to retain the mental health professionals. Just as the grant money to fund that program was running out, the district learned it will receive $320,000 from the state as part of the new school safety law. The money for the mental health is just really good timing because it allows us to continue a program that weve already been doing, Carswell said. Without the additional funds, the district would have needed to scale down the program. We were going to do everything we can to keep some of them, but theres no way we couldve kept all five of them, he said. While the district lucked out with the mental health funding, money for school resource deputies is another story. The new law requires that one safety officer be assigned to each school and at least one for each 1,000 students. That means the district, which currently has six full-time and two parttime school resource deputies, might need seven or eight more, depending on how the laws use of the word assigned is interpreted. Does that mean they go there every day? Carswell asked. The state is giving the district $780,000 for additional school resource deputies, about $400,000 short of what it needs to fully meet the new requirements. I think its good that we got the money, he said. I just wish that they would have funded it completely. Sheriff Mark Hunter stressed that campus safety isnt a new topic in the wake of recent tragedies, and said school resource deputies here get a lot of additional training beyond that of a regular officer. Every summer he sends his school deputies to specialized training through the Florida Association of School Resource Officers, which he says is invaluable. Im extremely pleased with our school resource deputies, Hunter said. They do a great job. Even though it seems like the school district is getting a good deal with the additional cash for mental health services and school resource deputies, every dollar that Tallahassee hands out comes from somewhere else, Carswell said. Last year, the district saw a roughly $109 increase in per-student funding from the state. This year, the increase will be about $101. Which sounds like its really close, right? Not a big deal. Not bad at all, Carswell said. But take a closer look and there are strings attached. Last year, $43 of the increase wasnt earmarked and could be used for dayto-day expenses, he said. This year, only 47 cents can go toward operational costs. The rest is reserved for school safety programs. Were going to take money out of the classroom to fund it, Carswell said. Thats why its problematic. Another concern is whether the state will continue to provide adequate funding for mental health services and school resource deputies once the issue of school violence fizzles out of the news cycle. Thats always a concern, Carswell said. For everything in education.

While the Legislature and Scott agree on the issue, such a change would ultimately require congressional approval. To that end, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., has filed legislation to begin the process of making the change. Scott on Friday also approved a measure (SB 140) that bars people under age 18 from getting marriage licenses. The bill includes an exception, though, for 17-year-olds who have written consent from their parents or guardians. Also, the 17-year-olds could not marry people who are more than two years older than them. The Legislature passed 195 bills during this years session, and Scott has signed 154 into law. To date, he hasnt vetoed any bills. Scott, however, issued a signing letter Friday with a bill (HB 7043) that would allow the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to assume administration of a federal wetland-permitting program. Scotts letter said the bill gives the department authority to undertake rulemaking to explore whether the state should issue permits now administered by the federal government. The Department of Environmental Protections rulemaking process is done with public input and scrutiny, Scott wrote. Also, the Department of Environmental Protection must demonstrate that their permitting programs standards are just as stringent, if not more stringent, than what is in place currently with the federal government.

NCAA TOURNAMENTCHS BASEBALLMichigan nips FSU to reach Final Four By JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comThere was more doubt which position each Columbia player would play from one inning to the next than of the outcome of Friday nights contest against Buchholz. With players moving around across the infield and outfield, the Lady Tigers used Friday as a tuneup for Mondays big contest against Class 1A No. 1 Trenton. Story Giebeig, CrisDeona Beasley, Dara Gaylard and Whitney Lee each delivered two RBI as Class 7A No. 8 Columbia used a seven-run second inning to roll to a 14-2 mercy-rule win over Buchholz in five innings at home. Gaylards two RBI came via a home run to dead center field in the third inning. Lee also pitched a complete game, striking out three Bobcats and surrendering just four hits. The win came one night after Columbia (12-3) topped district rival Gainesville 1-0 on the road. We had a great game yesterday and we came back today with another good game and W, Columbia coach Trudy Andrews said.

Alvarez replaced starter Jamie Minchin, who suffered an injury to his face in the second inning. Down in the dumpsBy ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comOn their home field, clinging to a comfortable three-run lead early, the Tigers were poised to knock off the red-hot Middleburg Broncos. But a disastrous, error-filled third inning allowed the Broncos to flip momentum as they scored six runs during the frame. Columbia had no answer on the mound for their explosive lineup that devoured three different pitchers in the District 3-7A matchup. Middleburg sluggers Scott Kneer and Collin Henderson each drove in four runs at the plate, cruising past the Tigers 14-7 Friday night. The Broncos rallied back for their fourth district win now tied with Gainesville for the tournaments top seed. Theyre just that good, Columbia head coach Brian Thomas said. No lead is safe when they swing it the way that they do. We made some mistakes with our pitches, we left some things fat and against that team you cant. You have to nibble and hope you have an umpire that understands the nibble because if you miss, theyre going to pound you Theyre the best team weve played all year.

Charles Matthews scored 17 points and Michigan earned its first Final Four berth since 2013 with a 58-54 victory over Florida State on Saturday night in the West Region final. Moe Wagner added 12 points as the Wolverines (32-7) earned their 13th consecutive victory by persevering through a defense-dominated second half and holding off a late charge from the Seminoles (23-12), who had already knocked off three higher-seeded opponents on their schools longest NCAA Tournament run since 1993. With tenacious defense and just enough made free throws down the stretch, Michigan hung on and advanced to San Antonio, Texas, next weekend to face the underdog heroes of Loyola-Chicago (325), who stunned the sport by winning the South Region. Phil Cofer scored 16 points for the ninth-seeded Seminoles (23-13), who couldnt match their late rally past top-seeded Xavier last week because they simply couldnt score consistently, going 7 for 30 from the field in the second half. Then again, the Wolverines didnt light it up against Florida States defense either, going 4 for 22 on 3-pointers. UF ATHLETICSFlorida ups facility spending to $130M, adds new ballparkBy MARK LONGAssociated PressGAINESVILLE Florida has significantly revised plans to upgrade several on-campus facilities, which will now include a new baseball stadium across campus and a more expansive building to house the all-important, revenue-generating football program. The Gators released details of the changes Friday, saying the estimated cost of the projects will jump from $100 million to $130 million. Florida will spend an estimated $65 million to build a standalone football facility adjacent to the teams practice fields. The 130,000-square-foot structure will house a weight room, locker rooms, meeting rooms, coaches offices and areas for players to workout, study and lounge. The two-story structure is expected to be much more efficient than the three-story one previously proposed in September 2016. Construction on the football building is scheduled to begin in late 2019, with the goal to be completed in 2021. It will be built where Floridas baseball team currently plays. McKethan Stadium, which opened in 1988 and has been upgraded several times since, will be demolished following the 2019 season. A new ballpark will be built on the southwest side Lady Tigers use seven-run 2nd inning to pull away from Bobcats for 14-2 win.

(AP) Weather washed out qualifying for NASCARs first stop this season at a short track and Martin Truex Jr. will start Sunday from the pole at Martinsville Speedway. There was no qualifying session because of a wintry mix that moved through the Virginia area and halted the Truck Series race after just 23 laps Saturday. NASCAR postponed the Truck Race and set the Cup field by owners points. The Truck Race is now scheduled to resume after Sundays Cup event. Truex is the defending Cup Series champion and is coming off his first vic tory of the season last week in California. He led both of Saturdays practice sessions, which NASCAR was lucky to get in before the weather disrupted its first two-day enhanced weekend of the year. Brad Keselowski is the defending race winner and Jimmie Johnson, who has opened this season in a slump, leads all active drivers with nine victories at Martinsville. When asked how he can get a 10th victory at Martinsville, Johnson quipped: I think survive the snowstorm and see what happens with the weather.NBAEASTERN CONFERENCE W L Pct GB x-Toronto 54 19 .740 x-Boston 49 23 .681 4 x-Cleveland 43 29 .597 10 Philadelphia 42 30 .583 11 Indiana 42 31 .575 12 Washington 40 32 .556 13 Miami 39 34 .534 15 Milwaukee 38 34 .528 15 Detroit 33 40 .452 21 Charlotte 33 41 .446 21 New York 26 47 .356 28 Chicago 24 49 .329 30 Brooklyn 23 50 .315 31 Orlando 22 51 .301 32 Atlanta 21 52 .288 33 WESTERN C ONFERENCE W L Pct GB y-Houston 59 14 .808 y -Golden State 54 18 .750 4 Portland 44 28 .611 14 Ok lahoma City 44 30 .595 15 S an Antonio 43 30 .589 16 New Or leans 43 31 .581 16 Minnesota 42 32 .568 17 Utah 41 32 .562 18 Denver 40 33 .548 19 L.A.

Napheesa Collier had 16 points and 11 rebounds to help top-seed UConn beat Duke 72-59 on Saturday and advance to the regional finals for the 13th consecutive season. UConn (35-0) will face defending national champion South Carolina on Monday night to try and advance to a record 11th straight Final Four. Fifth-seed Duke (24-9) closed its gap to 44-31 midway through the third quarter, but didnt score for the rest of the period and UConn rebuilt the 20-point advantage. Duke was led by sophomore Leaonna Odom, who had 22 points. South Carolina 79, Buffalo 69: In Albany, N.Y., Aja Wilson had 20 points and 13 rebounds, Alexis Jennings added 20 points, and South Carolina held off the upstart Bulls on Saturday to keep alive its quest to defend its national title. The Gamecocks (29-6) led 55-48 entering the fourth quarter, and the Bulls (29-6) stayed with them. A layup by Autumn Jones cut the lead to five, but after South Carolina committed a turnover, Buffalo center Cassie Oursler lost the ball out of bounds, the ball gently rolling off her fingertips under the basket at the other end, a critical miscue. Dillard led Buffalo with 29 points, the only Bulls player in double figures. Notre Dame 90, Texas A&M 84: In Spokane, Wash., Arike Ogunbowale scored 17 of her 27 points in the second half and Marina Mabrey added 25, hitting a career-high seven 3-pointers, to help Notre Dame beat No. 4 seed Texas A&M on Saturday in the Spokane Regional semifinals. The Irish (32-3) rallied from a 13-point first-half deficit and are back in their familiar spot of playing for a trip to the Final Four. Jackie Young had three key baskets in the final five minutes and finished with 15 points for Notre Dame. Mabrey was 7 of 11 on 3-pointers and the Irish made 10 of 18 shots from behind the arc. She had all of her points in the first three quarters. Carter finished with 31 points and seven assists. Anriel Howard added a career-high 26 points and 14 rebounds, but the Aggies (26-10). Oregon 83, Central Michigan 69: In Spokane, Wash., Ruthy Hebard had 23 points and 14 rebounds, Sabrina Ionescu just missed another triple-double with 16 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds, and second-seeded Oregon beat No. 11 seed Central Michigan 83-69 on Saturday in the Spokane Region semifinal of the womens NCAA Tournament. Lexi Bando added 14 points for Oregon (33-4), which earned a second consecutive trip to the Elite Eight with its 12th win in a row. The Ducks will play top-seeded Notre Dame in the regional final on Monday. Tinara Moore had 23 points and 14 rebounds for Central Michigan (305), which won its first two NCAA Tournament games in program history this year. Presley Hudson added 15 points on 6-of-21 shooting. NCAA WOMENS TOURNAMENTUConn returns to the Elite 8Michigan nursed a small lead throughout the second half, but P.J. Savoy trimmed the lead to 55-52 on a 3-pointer with 1:17 to play. With Michigan fans holding their breath, Savoy then missed a potential game-tying 3-pointer and two more 3-pointers in the final minute, including a final shot under pressure with 12 seconds left. With Michigan up by four, Florida State allowed the Wolverines to dribble out the clock without fouling again. Michigans Zavier Simpson and Duncan Robinson combined to hit three free throws in the final minute to keep Michigan ahead. The Wolverines discovered early on that they wouldnt be able to run away from the Seminoles with the same ease they used in the Sweet Sixteen to dispatch Texas A&M, scoring 99 points on nearly 62 percent shooting. Instead, defense and turnovers dominated the regional final in the first half, which ended with Michigan up 27-26 despite managing only one field goal and missing four free throws in the final 8 minutes. Cofer scored Florida States only two baskets in the final 7 minutes while the teams combined for 22 turnovers in the first half. Florida State managed only two points in a 10 -minute stretch spanning halftime, and Michigan took a 10-point lead before Cofer led the Seminoles back into it.Loyola is Final Four bound as an 11-seedATLANTA Ben Richardson scored 23 points and 11th-seeded Loyola romped to a 78-62 victory over Kansas State on Saturday night, capping off a remarkable run through the bracket-busting South Regional. The Ramblers (32-5) matched the lowest-seeded team ever to reach the Final Four, joining LSU (1986), George Mason (2006) and VCU (2011). Those other three all lost in the national semifinals. The Ramblers shot 57 percent against a team that is used to shutting opponents down, including 9 of 18 from 3-point range. Kansas State hit just 35 percent from the field 6 of 26 from beyond the arc. Early on the second half, Richardson swished a 3-pointer as he was fouled by Kamau Stokes winding up flat on his back, flashing a huge smile with his arms raised above his head. He knocked down the free throw to complete the fourpoint play, stretching the lead to 44-29. Loyola led by as many as 23.

Staff reportsState waters off the coast of Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties will open to recreational harvest of gag grouper starting April 1. This regional season will remain open through June 30. The season includes all waters of Apalachicola Bay and Indian Pass, including those in Gulf County, and all waters of the Steinhatchee River, including those in Dixie County. State waters off these four counties also open to recreational gag harvest Sept. 1 through Dec. 31. The gag grouper season in the remainder of Gulf of Mexico state waters and federal waters is open June 1 through Dec. 31. Monroe County state waters follow Atlantic grouper rules. Gag grouper caught in state Gulf waters (from shore to 9 nautical miles out) April 1 to June 30 off the four-county open region can be landed on the Gulf County side of Indian Pass and the Dixie County side of the Steinhatchee River, but may not be taken ashore in other areas if those areas are closed to harvest. For example, a gag grouper caught April 1 in state waters off Jefferson County cannot be taken ashore in Levy County or parts of Dixie County outside of the Steinhatchee River. To see maps of these areas, go to MyFWC.com/Fishing and select Saltwater Fishing, Recreational Regulations and Groupers. The minimum size limit is 24 inches total length. The bag limit is two gag grouper per person. Recreational anglers targeting groupers in the Gulf may harvest no more than four groupers per person, per day (within this four-fish limit, anglers may keep only two gag grouper). If you plan to fish for gag grouper in Gulf state or federal waters from a private recreational vessel, make sure to sign up as a Gulf Reef Fish Angler prior to your fishing trip (annual renewal is required).

S UNDAY, MARCH 25, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER 3B Selecting the best all-around fishing rod/reelBy MONTH STEPHENSSpecial to the Reporter Like a lot of things in life, one size does not fit all. There is not a one fishing rod and reel combo that will take care of all situations. This is why most fishermen/fisherwomen own several fishing rods. But there must be one type of fishing outfit that would allow an angler to tackle most fishing situations in north Florida. When selecting the best all-around rod/reel its important to know the species of fish to be pursued. From my way of thinking, there are two main categories of fishing saltwater and freshwater. Saltwater can be divided into several categories, but lets just say there is inshore and offshore. Of course saltwater offshore fishing gets way more complicated if one looks at trolling versus bottom fishing, etc. Freshwater fishing stays a little simpler though. With exceptions, most of the fish caught in a freshwater environment will be under five pounds. This same thing can be said for inshore saltwater fishing. The type of fish caught in freshwater would be Large Mouth Bass, Catfish, Chain Pickerel, Speckled Perch and all brim. For saltwater fish inshore or on the flats, the typical fish would include Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder, Rock Bass, Spanish Mackeral, Jack Crevalle, and Bluefish. So now we know the species and size of the fish being targeted. Next a choice would need to be made for the type of reel. Some people prefer spinning reels, some like bait casters and others like spin cast. Most people have one of each. But there will always be the one outfit they grab first. For me, I like a Daiwa bait casting reels on a light action rod. In the world of fishing, less is more. The fishing rod needs to be suited to the type of fishing being done. When I was 15, my brother and I were invited by one of our friends on a three-day fishing trip to the Chandelier Islands. We had never heard of these islands. Our fishing trips up until then was catching Croakers with frozen shrimp off of the Popps Ferry Bridge. But we were told we were going 35-40 miles out in the Gulf. So we raided our piggy banks and bought fishing rods (and reels) suitable for medium offshore fishing. I think we spooled them with 40 lb. test line. The Chandelier Islands are a long string of islands, south of Biloxi. We made the four-hour run out to the Islands on an impeccable 45 ft. Chris Craft Commander. When we arrived at Redfish Point, we fished out of the 14 ft. skiffs that were towed behind the big boat. The target species was Speckled Trout. The fishing outfits we brought with us were better suited for Grouper or King Mackeral. Despite being way over gunned, we still caught a bunch of Trout and Redfish, but not of what everyone else caught. A better choice would have been a Zebco outfit with 10 lb test line. We just didnt know what we were doing. It was still a great fishing trip. Our neighbor invited us dozens of more times through the years. Needless to say, we used the right gear on subsequent trips. Speaking with some local experts at McDuffie Sporting Goods, I found most fishermen prefer level wind bait casting reels with a medium action freshwater type rod. Michael Hutto, founder of the Saltwater Life apparel company, prefers Ambassadeur bait casting reels. Mike has fished all of the world and has logged lots of hours fishing commercially, inshore and offshore. Justin Lee Hendry, Jackson, Mississippi, is an avid Bass fisherman also prefers about the same outfit, except he would want graphite rod in order to save weight. COURTESYAny of these rod/reels above or below would be perfect for fishing in the lakes and rivers of north Florida. They would also be equally as perfect at home in-shore salt water fishing. 4 Florida counties open April 1 to gag grouper recreational harvest OUTDOORS

1 Thursday night. Game 2 starting pitcher Daveion Love, though, took the mound without sidelined pitching coach Lee Bryant, who was ejected the night before. Love, nonetheless, cruised through the opening two frames. His outing went south in the rough third, which included three errors and four earned runs given up. Two relievers (Cal Gilliam, Jacob Garnier) took over once Love was retired in the fourth, yet it wasnt enough to avoid the teams first district sweep since 2013. All three pitchers struggled without starting catcher Jamie Minchin, who exited the game after a face injury suffered during an at-bat in the second. Columbia was forced to turn to inexperienced sophomore Chris Alvarez in Minchins absence. Yeah that was a really big part of it, Love said of losing his catcher. Hes been calling every inning all season, so we needed him. We needed him big-time. And we had miscues with our pitching coach not here. Loves counterpart, Seth Loyd, shook off a rough start on the hill and finished with six strikeouts in a six-inning performance. After giving up two runs in the fourth, the Tigers responded with two runs on a sacrifice and RBI single by senior Cole Frier in the bottom half. It was closest the Tigers came to a comeback as the three-run deficit ballooned to six during the sixth inning. Middleburg added three more runs in the seventh while Columbia scored its final two in the bottom half Friday night. It was a night where Jamie goes out, pitching coach is out, had to pull [Clayton] Steinruck because he made comments he shouldnt have made, Thomas said. So now its all hands on deck. I dont care if youre a sophomore, freshman or senior. I dont care, youre going to have to go play and figure it out at some point in time. But on the positive side of this, I think were back swinging the bats. We had a low [Thursday] but these last two or three ballgames weve swung the bats pretty well. Coach Thomas believes his team will be ready when the May tournament rolls around. He says he doesnt mind being the low-seed this year, and thinks the Tigers will be a scary opponent for any team during the opening round. It doesnt matter to me, the second-year coach said. You got to play. I like our chances against anybody in a one-game situation where our kids are up and juiced. And weve got a staff full of arms, because well throw everybody we have to in that first [elimination] game because theres no looking back We play the rest of the year now to prepare for the district tournament. The reeling Tigers hope to get their mojo back before the postseason begins. Players are trying to stay positive but they know something must change and fast if the reigning district champs are going to bring the hardware back to Columbia. Its a tough district, Love added. District champs the past three years, but as of right now we got to fight because were the underdogs. Weve lost to every team in the district. We have to play like its our last game because it will be as soon as we get to districts. We cant afford to have the errors like weve been having. DISTRICT SHAKEUP: Gainesville and Middleburg are tied for No. 1 seed after going 4-2 in league play this year. The two teams will coin flip. The winner will be deemed the top-seed and will host the District 3-7A tournament. Vanguard will be the third seed while Columbia will be the fourth seed due to point deferential. UP NEXT: Columbia begins its four-game road trip at Fletcher Monday night. The Tigers then travel to Palatka Friday night. Middleburg hosts Clay Monday night. 6B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, MARCH 25, 2018 UF baseball trounces No. 4 Arkansas 17-2GAINESVILLE Florida bounced back in a big way after a 6-3 series-opening loss on Friday night to Arkansas. The No. 2 Gators jumped out to a 12-0 lead after just three innings and cruised the rest of the way to beat the No. 4 Razorbacks 17-2 on Saturday afternoon at McKethan Stadium. Up 6-0 in the third, Florida scored six runs and doubled its lead with six runs in the frame. Austin Langworthy and Deacon Liput had RBI singles and Keenan Bell roped a RBI double. On the mound, starter Jackson Kowar was sharp, scat tering four hits over six innings of work. He allowed a two-run home run and three singles, none of which left the infield.UF softball downs A&M in series openerGAINESVILLE The Florida softball team opened the series against Texas A&M with a 6-1 victory at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium Saturday evening. For the seventh time this season, Kelly Barnhill registered more than 10 strikeouts as she handed the Aggies (29-5, 3-1 SEC) their season-high with 12 on the day while limiting them to just one run on two hits. The Gators (25-3, 5-2 SEC) opened the scoring in the bot tom of the first inning when freshman Jordan Matthews drove home Amanda Lorenz and Nicole DeWitt on a single. Senior Janell Wheaton capped the scoring in the first with her second home run of the season to extend the lead out to 4-0. The Gators offense struck again in the fourth thanks to an RBI double from pinch hitter Jaimie Hoover. Lorenz extended the Florida lead out to 6-0 with a single through the left side that scored Hoover.FSU shuts out Syracuse to secure series winTALLAHASSEE Jumping out to an early 3-0 lead in the first inning, the Seminoles then leaned quality pitching from Meghan King and Savanna Copeland as No. 14 Florida State (25-6, 5-0 ACC) earned a 6-0 victory over Syracuse (15-9, 4-3 ACC) on Saturday afternoon at JoAnne Graf Field. The win is the 31st-straight ACC win for FSU, which moves the Noles into a tie with Jacksonville State (2015-17) for the ninth-longest conference winning streak in NCAA history. The victory also secured the series win over the Orange and Florida State extends its confer ence series unbeaten streak to 43. The Noles are 39-0-4 in ACC series dating back to 2012, with four 1-1 series splits. Fridays contest remained scoreless until the bottom of the sixth inning and a sacrifice fly by Zoe Casas brought in the games only run as Florida State earned a 1-0 victory over Syracuse.FSU baseball splits doubleheader at UNCCHAPEL HILL, N.C. Due to inclement weather expected in Chapel Hill, No. 8 Florida State and North Carolina played a doubleheader on Friday. The No. 8 Seminoles (19-5, 4-4 ACC) split the two games with the Tar Heels (14-9, 4-4), with North Carolina winning the first game 16-8 and FSU taking the second game 6-3 in 10 innings. It was FSUs first extra-inning game this season. Leftfielder Jackson Lueck and shortstop Mike Salvatore each had four hits over the two games, including a season high three hits each in the second game. The teams will finish the series this afternoon. LHP Austin Pollock (2-1, 3.09 ERA) will throw for FSU, while UNC will counter with RHP Taylor Sugg (2-0, 4.67 ERA).FSU WR Murray to miss remainder of springTALLAHASSEE (AP) Florida States Nyqwan Murray will miss the remainder of spring practice due to an injury to his left knee. Coach Willie Taggart said Friday that the senior wide receiver tore the meniscus during a non-contract drill on Wednesday, which was the Seminoles first practice. Murray is the teams leading returning receiver from last season. He led the team in receiv ing yards (604) and was tied in receptions (40) along with scoring four touchdowns. Murrays injury leaves Florida State thin at receiver for the remainder of the spring. The only scholarship receivers remaining on the roster are juniors George Campbell and Keith Gavin along with sophomore D.J. Matthews.ROUNDUP have to get them to stay focused, work hard, take care of their bodies and get ready for Monday. It was the fourth win in the last five games for the Lady Tigers, who are expected to rise in the new Miracle Sports poll next week after defeating Class 7A No. 3 Gainesville. I hope we keep this going, Andrews said. Weve got a little bit more work to do. Its good stuff and we want to keep building from here and get those things we need to work on a little more down and ready for the postseason. The contest was actually tight early on, with Lucy Giebeig drawing a bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the first inning before Buchholz (3-11) tied the game 1-1 in the top of the second thanks to Jadyn Gostons solo homer to left field. But Columbia blew the game open with seven runs in the bottom half, sending 11 batters to the plate with the first two knocking Buchholz starting pitcher Abby Henson from the game. S.K. Lewis led off the offensive explosion a double and her sister Caroline drove her home with an RBI single to take Henson off the mound. Erica Lewis took over for Henson but couldnt provide any relief. Morgan Hoyle extended the lead with an RBI single and Giebeig and Beasley each hit 2-RBI doubles later in the frame to put Columbia up 7-1. S.K. Lewis then came back to plate and scored Beasley with an RBI single. The big lead allowed Andrews to start moving players around the field defensively the rest of the night. The Lady Tigers combined for 10 hits on the night against the two pitchers while also drawing nine walks. Id rather have them set in position and keep them there but in this kind of situation you can move them around because we have so many girls that can play multiple positions, Andrews said. Sometimes its good to let them get in other positions that they normally dont get to play. The Bobcats got a run back in the top of the third on Gostons RBI single but Gaylard extended the lead further in the bottom half. Sofia Arata pinch-hit for Giebeig and singled before Gaylard took Lewis deep with two outs to light the scoreboard up at 10-2. It was Gaylards second bomb of the season. Shes been hitting. Shes a power hitter so she puts the bat on the ball with some authority, Andrews said. Coming off of (spring break) and getting back into our rhythm, shes just stepped in and done fine. Four more runs came across in the fourth for Columbia. Beasley and S.K. Lewis both scored on a Buchholz error and Lee followed with a 2-RBI single. Lee then retired the Bobcats in order in the fifth to trigger the mercy rule, ending the night early as the Lady Tigers look forward to Mondays big test against Trenton. Its going to be tough. Theyre a good team. Trenton always has a good team, Andrews said. But its pitching we like to see and weve just got to play our game. Itll be a fun game. CHS Continued From 1Bof campus, near the schools lacrosse and softball fields. The park will cost an estimated $50 million, and Florida expects to break ground this fall. The ballpark will be built on 13.63 acres that currently belong to the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agriculture Sciences and are home to fruit trees. The University Athletic Association agreed to pay IFAS $3 million in exchange for the land. That money also will help fund the relocation of the trees. The Gators said the ballpark will have the capacity to hold 10,000, with half of those being chair-back seats. The plans call for double-deck seating behind home plate, lots of shade and fans much closer to the playing field. Florida, which won its first baseball national title in 2017, wants to create a better home-field advantage and improve the overall fan experience. Florida also will spend $11 million to upgrade its softball facility, Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium. The enhancements include a larger, elevated press box, increased capacity (from 1,431 to 2,280), chair-backs seats all around and a new locker room for players. Construction will begin this summer and is scheduled to be completed before the 2019 season. Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium was built in 1996 at a cost of $2.6 million. The Gators won back-toback national titles in 2014-15. Our athletic department is consistently among the top five in the nation, and it is our intent that all three of these facilities mirror that, athletic director Scott Stricklin said. The Gators already have $73 million of the total needed for the renovations. The UAAs Board of Trustees approved a $50 million bond Friday. The states Board of Governors still must approve the bond resolution at the end of June, but thats considered a formality. Florida also has raised $13 million for the projects and has $10 million earmarked for them from investment earnings. The revamped designs are the latest step toward completely overhauling Floridas facilities, which had been considered lagging in the ultra-competitive Southeastern Conference. Florida spent $105 million in 2015-16 to renovate the OConnell Center, build an indoor practice facility for the football team and open an academic center for student-athletes. The Gators have more planned down the road, too. Stricklin has said Florida Field, where the football team plays, needs a face-lift and will be part of the next wave of on-campus projects.

2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, MARCH 2531, 2018Dishonest mom: From one extreme to another Dave RamseyCEO of Ramsey SolutionsDAVE SAYSDear Dave, Im about to graduate from college, and while Ive been in school my mom has been handling most of my finances. Recently, I discovered shes been taking my student loan money and spending it on herself. So far, it looks like shes taken around $12,000, and I have a total of $25,000 in student loan debt. Since I realized this was happening, Ive been reading your books and learning how to manage my own money. I dont know how to deal with this situation with her, though. She admits she did wrong, but says she cant pay it back. Can you help? Alan Dear Alan, I hate hearing this. Theres no easy way to deal with these kinds of situations. The first thing you need to do is take over complete and total control of all your finances. Shut down any accounts that have her name on them, and anything else financially-related that she can access. I know this sounds harsh, but she has proven shes just not trustworthy. Its a hard thing to hear about a parent, but at this point youve got to take steps to protect yourself. What she has been doing is theft, and financial child abuse. One extreme is to press criminal charges. The other extreme is to just forget it, and pay it. In between is a promise from her to repay everything she has taken, but shes already out of control. Thats a promise that wouldnt be kept. The problem with prosecuting someone criminally for this type of action other than the emotional toll, because shes your mom is the moneys already gone. Its doesnt make them magically have the money to repay you. On top of all this, youd have a really hard time legally getting the student loans removed from your name due to theft. Honestly, under the circumstances I think youre probably going to end up eating this. But sit down, and try to have a calm, clear discussion about what has happened, and why it happened. Let her know first, without a doubt, that you will criminally prosecute her if she ever uses your name to put money into her own pocket again. Second, tell her youre prepared to forgive her and forget about it and she pays you back at some point, if she can if she agrees to get some financial and emotional counseling. Try to get her some help, and get her under control, Alan. If you dont, Im afraid things are only going downhill from here.

You essentially bet that the stock will top $61 per share $55 plus $6 by July. Options are enticing because of the leverage they offer. With $1,000, you can only buy 20 shares of a $50 stock. Alternatively, that $1,000 could buy many options tied to hundreds of shares of stock. With options, if things dont go your way in a short time frame, the options will expire worthless. Most options expire unexercised. If youve researched the company and believe that TAPTAP stock will rise, youre generally best off buying its stock. You wont have a shortterm deadline, and you can hang on until it reaches your target price. Options are not for beginning investors, and many advanced investors steer clear, too.

A return to basics that stressed iconic brands such as the Egg McMuffin and Quarter Pounder helped, but so did new product launches, a refreshed value menu and food preparation improvements. Customers are loving the fresher menu items and are demonstrating their satisfaction by returning more often. At the same time, profitability has shot to new highs, buoyed by a refranchising plan that, by lowering the proportion of company-owned locations, is boosting operating margins. Investors can expect that metric to rise again in 2018 as the company completes its refranchising push. Meanwhile, management aims to deploy earnings into growth initiatives that include store remodelings, ordering kiosks, a mobile app and home food delivery. The company already offers delivery from more than 20 percent of its restaurants worldwide. CEO Steve Easterbrook told investors early this year that, while executives are happy with their recent wins, we have far greater ambitions. Additional market-share gains would be impressive, but investors can rest easy knowing that income gains are likely from McDonalds in the years ahead whether sales growth accelerates or stays put. The stock recently sported a dividend yield of 2.5 percent, and its payout has more than doubled over the past decade. It boasts a 42-year streak of dividend increases. rffOutpricedMy dumbest investment was buying shares of Priceline Group for around $16 soon after the companys initial public offering (IPO) and then selling them for $160 apiece just a few months later. R., online The Fool Responds: That certainly seems like an excellent dumb investment, since your investment apparently increased in value tenfold! But we know what you mean, since the stock has risen a lot since then with a recent price of around $2,175. (That reflects a 2003 1-for-6 reverse split, so a comparable, splitadjusted price for you would be about $362 which still stings.) You were lucky to get your shares at their initial price of $16 per share, since its typically just well-connected people and institutions who get those shares in an IPO, with the rest of us scrambling to buy in the open market, often after the price has surged. Pricelines shares began trading at $81, reflecting an immediate 500 percent gain though they ended their first day around $69. In general, its best to avoid IPOs entirely, giving them a year or two to settle down. Many will end up at lower prices. Note that Priceline bought the European hotel booking site Booking.com in 2005, and it has been so successful that its now the companys biggest brand and profit generator, so much so that Priceline Group recently renamed itself Booking Holdings. Floored by TaxesQWhats the percent floor in tax talk? K.G., Fort Myers, FloridaAIt refers to miscellaneous itemized deductions. You can deduct only the portion of them that exceeds 2 percent of your adjusted gross income (AGI). For example, if your AGI is $50,000, your floor will be 2 percent of that, or $1,000. If your miscellaneous itemized deductions total $900, youre out of luck. But if they total $1,750, you can deduct $750. Qualifying expenses include certain home office expenses, tax preparation fees, investment-related fees, job-hunting expenses and unreimbursed job-related expenses. Unfortunately, the recent tax reform suspends these miscellaneous itemized deductions beginning with the 2018 tax year through 2025. So enjoy them this year! Learn more in our tax nook at fool.com/taxes and from the horses mouth, at irs.gov.***QWhenever I buy stock, do I have to buy 100 shares or more? E.J., DetroitANope. Most brokerages dont restrict how many shares of stock you can buy. You can buy 16 shares or 87 shares or even just one share. Pay attention to what percentage of your investment is going to commissions, though. If, for example, you buy 10 shares of a $25 stock for $250, but you pay a $15 commission to your broker, then that represents 6 percent of your investment, which is rather costly. (15 divided by 250 is 0.06, or 6 percent.) Your investment would have to grow by 6 percent before youd break even and that might take a while. Aim to pay 2 percent or less in commissions. If you buy $1,000 of stock in a company and pay a $15 commission, thats less than 2 percent. Many brokerages these days charge commissions of $10 or less per trade.Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to email@example.comUnderstanding OptionsIf youve ever wondered what options are, read on. Assume that you want to invest in Morse Code Telecommunications (ticker: TAPTAP). You can simply buy some shares of its stock or you might use options, which come in two main varieties: calls and puts. Buying a call gives you the right to buy a specified number of shares at a specified price within a certain period of time (typically a few months). Puts give you the right to sell shares at a specified price within a specified period. Imagine that TAPTAP is selling for $50 per share, and you buy $6 July $55 call options for it. Youll pay a total of $600 for options to buy 100 shares at $55 apiece. If, just before your options expire, TAPTAP is selling for, say, $65 per share, you can exercise them and buy 100 shares for $5,500. Then you can keep them or sell them at their current price, for $6,500. Your profit may seem to be $1,000, 2018 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

Dunn, Panetta fight to remove barriers to agricultural tradeFrom staff reportsWASHINGTON, D.C. Congressmen Neal Dunn (FL-02) and Jimmy Panetta (CA-20) teamed up to eliminate unnecessary trade barriers that are hurting American exports and hindering innovation and advances in agricultural production technologies, including biotechnology. The Growing American Food Exports Act amends the Food, Agriculture, Conservation, and Trade Act of 1990 to update a USDA Foreign Agricultural Service program that funds efforts to harmonize international reviews of agricultural production technologies, which will lead to a stronger export economy and trade relations for the United States. Approximately one third of all U.S. agricultural exports, roughly $40 billion, are produced with or contain products of genetic engineering. These products face significant regulatory barriers in overseas markets and currently there is no single international standard-setting body to help normalize trade. The Growing American Food Exports Act addresses these top trade priorities: Maintaining and expanding access in major markets Advancing trade-facilitating solutions to inadvertent Low-Level Presence of genetically engineered products approved in the United States, but not in foreign markets Promoting tradeand innovation-friendly policies globally for emerging technologies Building international coalitions for global acceptance of U.S. crops and predictable, science-based regulations In North Florida, agriculture is vital to the economy, and our farmers are using new technologies to grow food that is more resistant to pests and disease, require less water, and cost families less at the grocery store. Unfortunately, government regulations abroad often lag behind innovation on American farms, which prevents local farmers from selling their abundance to Americas trading partners, Dunn said. Removing these trade barriers and strengthening relations with our global partners will level the playing field for North Floridas agricultural products. This legislation is a step in the right direction for improving our export economy and supporting innovation in the agricultural industry. Last year, Dunn and Panetta led a bipartisan group of 79 House members in urging the USDA, FDA, and EPA to develop a consistent regulatory system so that theres a pathway to market for genetically engineered products, and begin coordinating with our trade partners to develop a harmonized approach to new technologies, such as gene editing.

Duval St.Across From DOWNTOWN LAKE CITYSTART EARNING NOW EARN MORE MONEY NOW Hands-on training for FGC paramedic students From staff reportsA group of 13 students from the Paramedic Program at Florida Gateway College joined employees from Century Ambulance and Bradford County EMS at a two-day airway management training event held in Baltimore earlier this month. Attendees had the opportunity to learn airway management techniques from some of the nations leading experts at the University of Maryland Medical Centers Shock Trauma Center. In an emergency medical situation, managing a patients airway to ensure adequate oxygenation is of the utmost importance. Training exercises that adequately simulate a real-world scenario are rare, making it difficult for students to hone these skills. This event provided some of that much sought-after experience by allowing students to practice essential skills on recently deceased bodies in the centers cadaver lab. The class was appropriate, and I think it is something that needs to be done for every paramedic program in the country, said Steve Stith, Director of EMS Operations for Century Ambulance in Lake City. You do not get training like this anywhere else in the U.S. While a grant was obtained to help offset a portion of the cost to the students, the training was not an FGC-sponsored event and was not required as part of the Paramedic Program. They had to pay for this out of their own pockets, take time off from their jobs, and arrange to make up what they would miss during class, said Ann Brown, EMS Programs Coordinator at FGC. Their willingness to do this shows that they recognize the value of this type of opportunity. I hope it instills a hunger within them to continue learning once they have successfully completed our program, Brown continued. Its refreshing and encouraging. The program was developed in a coordinated effort by Allen Parrish, EMS Director for Bradford County, Dr. Peter Gianas, Medical Director for many EMS agencies and training programs including Bradford County and FGC, and a group of dedicated and experienced physicians at the University of Maryland Medical Center. Mr. Parrish also serves on the EMS Advisory Council for FGC. There is so much to learn beyond what can be taught during the course of a paramedic training program, said Dr. Gianas on the value of this opportunity. Its important for these students to know that the learning doesnt stop there.

These are our warmup races. The event has approximately 300 racers looking to tame the new track at the facility. Racers have come from as far away as California, Canada, Arizona, New Jersey, Atlanta, Ohio, North Carolina and several other states to participate. Sponsors for the event came from South Carolina, Canada and New Jersey. The event is popular because weve been able to get help from the county, the Gateway RC Club and a lot of local volunteers, Lewis said. Last year the 2017 Pro-Line Summer Shootout drew several hundred RC racers and enthusiasts from around the Southeast and allowed local organizers a peek at the venues potential. After the county added permanent restroom facilities, additional parking spaces, more room for industry vendors, a parking area for RVs, a pit pavilion where club members installed big screen televisions, the venues race attendance has increased this year. Parking last May during our last huge race here was nightmare, Lewis said. So, we tried to separate the mobile homes, trailers and parking. The county added new electrical outlets and utilities. We tried to separate everything to make it a little more fluid and its working out great. This years event attracted more than 45 race trailers and a unknown number of spectators. People love to pit out of their race trailers with generators and many of them stay in the local motels, Lewis said. Weve been able to grow by upgrading the facility with the help of the county and dedication, and every dime we make were putting it back into the facility. Everybody wants to come here. Weve been told weve got the nicest facility on the East Coast and were close to having one of the nicest in the nation. Thats our goal, we want to have the No. 1 facility in the nation. Lence MacDonald, Gateway RC Club president, said hes pleased to see how the sport and facility has grown locally. Two years ago I never thought this would turn into the event it has become, he said. Its without a doubt, one of the most popular tracks in the Southeast. MacDonald said being able to host the nationals in June and have racers come from different parts of North America this weekend to prepare for that race, is a testament to the improvements the club and county has made at the facility. Were doing everything that can be done to make the facility as much of a premier venue as possible, he said. ... You probably will not find a more interactive family event than RC racing.

LIFE Lake City Reporterwww.lakecityreporter.comSunday, March 25, 2018Section D Story ideas? Contact Editor Robert Bridges754email@example.com Its time to start preparing for Easter dinnerEaster is right around the corner and Im sure youve already started thinking about your Easter Dinner. A lot of people will be eating out but I think the majority of us will be eating at home. The traditional main dish is almost always ham, so I thought I would give you some other ideas that you could use instead of ham or in addition to ham. So, the other classic standby for Sunday dinner is chicken, of course. Also, this is one dinner I dont mind having leftovers. Usually I farm all my leftovers over to my family or guests to take home. There are only a few dishes that I enjoy a second time. All of these are leftover keepers. Sorry. For a wonderful, old timey, favorite casserole, Carol Cohrs shared her Chicken Salad Casserole recipe. Really quite simple and its really quite good and it goes way back for its origin. CHICKEN SALAD CASSEROLE 4 cups diced cooked chicken 2 cans cream of chicken soup or mushroom soup 2 cups diced celery 4 tbs. minced onion 2 cups slivered almonds, toasted 1 cup mayonnaise cup chicken stock 1 tsp salt tsp black pepper 4 tbs. lemon juice 6 hard boiled eggs, chopped 1 cup crushed cracker crumbs Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all the above ingredients except cracker crumbs and place in a 9 x 13 casserole dish. Cover with crumbs and bake for 40 minutes. Serves 10-12 Another delicious hot main dish is Stephanie Griffiths Jambayla. You can make this with chicken or shrimp. I love this one and its easy too. I love every ingredient that goes in it..rice, sausage, onion soup, etc. When Stephanie brings a dish to one of our functions, you can count on it being good. I loved this from the first bite. JAMBALAYA 2 cups Uncle Bens Converted Rice 2 pounds peeled shrimp or chicken,cut into pieces and do not precook. 1 pound smoked link sausage, slice thinly 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can French Onion Soup 1 (14 ounce) can beef broth 1 (6 ounce) can tomato sauce 1/2 cup green onions 1/2 cup bell pepper Pepper to taste Tony Chaceres Creole seasoning, to taste 1 stick of butter, cut into pads Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl mix liquids first and then stir in remaining ingredients except butter. Place mixture in 11 baking dish. Dot with pats of butter, cover with foil and Bake at 350 for 1 hr&15 to 1hr&30 making sure the rice is done. Sandra Foreman shared this chicken recipe. She says that its one of those that was popular for a covered dish event back in the day. Again, its one of those you mix up, put in a casserole dish and bake. It seems to me these days we have less casseroles as our main course and more casseroles for our sides. So, back in the day, this was a hit. This was also the time that cooks used canned soups in sooooo many recipes and there was always that little touch of pimiento. Makes BUDDIES continued on 4DBrothers in law After 25 years on the job together, folks think these two troopers are related.TASTE BUDDIES Genie NormanTasteBuddiesLakeCity@gmail.comCOREY ARWOOD/Lake City Reporter By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comTwo local state troopers recently celebrated 25 years on the job, though the connections to the Lake City Florida High Patrol Troop B Headquarters they share span lifetimes and generations. Master Sgt. Steve Coody, 49, said he felt like hes followed Lt. Kevin Pace, 50, everywhere. Just dont die because Im not ready to follow you there yet, Coody laughed. People think were brothers. Im much better looking. Both troopers shared laughs, remembering good times. Coody provided comic relief between the two in an interview on their two-anda-half decades in state law enforcement. There was also grave seriousness when they recounted experiences they said left the greatest impact during their collective time spent patrolling Floridas highways and interstates. Both are lifetime Lake City residents, having attended Columbia High School. We have been together all our life, said Pace. Literally, Coody added. We grew up together, we grew up here in Lake City, Pace said. We both actually grew up in the station pretty much. Coodys mother worked with Troop B as a dispatcher, and Paces father retired a First Lieutenant. So as kids we spent quite a bit of time here, Pace said. Pace later married into the force, his wife a recently retired public information officer, her father a retired patrol captain. Coody said, In fact that front lobby I used to sleep in some times so I could go to school the next morning while my mom was working dispatch on midnight shift. They went to patrol school in Tallahassee in 1993 and were sent on the same patrol details starting out. Thrown into the deep-end with high population counties to get quickly accustomed to full gravity of their new jobs, before ultimately returning to Columbia County. As with most industries and perhaps even more so with law enforcement, though, the job has changed over 25 years. Pace and Coody were quick to agree, but slow answering if it had changed for the better and each searched for a diplomatic response. The times have just changed, its a different world and the people we deal with its a whole different, over the years its changed, said Pace. When we started we didnt have all the technology with the computers, the way we do things has changed so much now that without the computer now people dont know how to function, whereas we could still function. They expressed a similar concern with technology and what they saw as the modern day troopers digital dependency. Paper crash reports, handwritten citations, all that stuff, all your incident reports, everything you wrote by hand and now this new generation theyve always had the computer so if their computer goes down theyre like do I even come into work today? Moody said. Despite dogging the young guys, they said it felt like not so long ago they were the young guys. We were the young guys coming up and now I mean its hard to fathom but you turn around and its like were the old guys, Moody said Its totally different now, Pace added. Civilian attitudes toward law enforcement have changed they said, though not for the better. Summed up no respect. Moody attributed it to a demographic change and a diminCOURTESY FHPTOP: Florida Highway Patrol Master Sgt. Steve Coody, left, and Lt. Kevin Pace.

Think before you say something youll regret. It wont be as easy to fix a regretted mistake as in the past. Listen to complaints and criticism, and make an effort to bring about positive change. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Youll face opposition if you are too open about your plans. Work out any problems before you share or try to put your plans into motion. Problems with siblings, friends or neighbors can be expected. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): How you earn your living is about to change. Trying to hold on to something that no longer belongs to you will stand in the way of new beginnings and marking out your territory in an area that offers greater success. CANCER (June 21-July 22): The sweetest revenge is your own success. Dont waste your time arguing a moot point when its what you accomplish that will make the difference. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Someone may be hiding something from you. Be patient but observant and you will discover whats shaking the foundation of a relationship that means a lot to you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Youll have to be on your toes when dealing with people who use emotional tactics in order to take advantage of you. You can outsmart anyone looking for a handout if you are prepared to offer suggestions rather than cash. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Dont make a move or say anything until you have time to consider every angle of a situation that is unfolding. Someone may disappoint you, but the reason isnt likely to be as daunting as you think. Show compassion and understanding. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Alter your life because you want to, not because someone else is choosing to do so. A problem with a relative, child or close friend will leave you feeling at odds about how to handle his or her actions or affairs. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): There will be a tug-of-war when it comes to possessions or assets and how you handle personal financial, legal and medical matters. A problem regarding a parent or child is best handled with care and compassion. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Listen, be pleasant, but dont get involved in a deal that is impractical because family or a close friend is begging you to take part. Share your concerns and opt out regardless of what others do or say. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Pick and choose who you spend your time with. Engaging in activities with people who are demanding, challenging or aggressively competitive will not ease your stress. Catching up on your reading or kicking back with someone you love is preferable. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Take part in events that will benefit a cause you believe in or someone you care about. Offering support, positive reinforcement and a nonjudgmental attitude will give you insight into whats at the root of a problem. DEAR ABBY: Im hoping you can give me some guidance, as I am a huge fan and read your column regularly. I am a 32-year-old woman whose mother and grandmother told me about our proud Native American heritage all my life. Several years ago, I got a large tattoo in our tribes language as a way to honor my family. Recently, Mom did a DNA test and discovered that we are not, in fact, of Native American descent. We feel devastated and betrayed by our parents and grandparents for lying to us for generations. I havent shared this news with my husband, extended family and friends because I feel so ashamed and humiliated. I told Mom that I would like to have my tattoo covered up or removed. It upset her and made her feel incredibly guilty. Im not doing this to hurt her, but because I feel like a fraud and dont want to lie about the tattoos meaning in the future. Abby, your thoughts on how best to handle this situation? -TATTED AND CONFUSED DEAR T and C: Considering the circumstances, I see no reason for continuing to wear a tattoo that would be a constant reminder you were lied to. If your mother deliberately misled you, she has good reason to feel guilty. If she, too, was misled, then shes as much a victim as you are. My thought is that you are the only person who has to live in your own skin, and you should do with it whatever will make YOU happy. DEAR ABBY : For 18 years I was in a loveless marriage. The one good thing that came out of that marriage was my beautiful 14-year-old daughter. My ex-wife and I have been divorced for a year now and Im feeling emotionally available. I have met -or shall I say re-met -a woman I have known since second grade. She was my sisters best friend and was always around our house growing up. She was kind of like a sister, but I always had a crush on her. Now, so many years later, we have connected. We see each other every few weeks and text each other. This has been going on for almost a year. My crush has come back, but it is different this time. I feel like Im falling in love with her. Im not sure how she feels about me, but we do have an incredible connection. She calls us kindred spirits. And thats where my question lies. How do I take a 45-plusyear friendship out of the friendship zone? Should I tell her how I feel or not? I have tried, but the words just wouldnt come out of my mouth. -LOST IN FRIENDSHIP DEAR LOST IN FRIENDSHIP: The words you are looking for are, I think Im falling in love with you, and I need to know if you feel the same way. Say that, and the worst that can happen is your friendship of 45-plus years will remain a kindred spirit friendship. The best that can happen will be you will hit the jackpot. Speak up!

4D S UNDAY, MARCH 25, 2018 LIFE LAKE CITY REPORTER ished hometown r elationship between cops and locals. Growing up, Coody said, You didnt backtalk a trooper But now people dont have the real respect for authority. They also shared a story in common they considered to have affected them most. One of the biggest thing that both of us was on that well probably never forget is the three girls killed over there in Baker County that I initially rolled up on; almost witnessed it. He was coming right behind me, Pace said. They retold the tragic incident in vivid detail that killed several children inside a passenger car that struck a semi-truck, as their mother drove them to school on the interstate. Coody said it was helplessness as they tried to help each child, all ultimately dying from the wreck in the late s in Baker County on I-10. Pace spent a large part of his career in the investigative division, Coody on patrol. They said retiring is out of the question for now. They could if they wanted to but are still too young. Yeah, I still enjoy it. You just dont quit doing it. Thats probably the biggest fear of retirement is the change because you go from this to nothing, Pace said. Coody answered, Everything here, when you come to work everything here could go to hell-in-a-handbasket that fast and youre just running with your hair on fire trying to take care of things quickly. You go from that to nothing and their heart just dont know how to handle it. Both seemed grateful for their careers with the Highway Patrol. We were raised in it, it was good to us as kids, provided for us and its continued to be that way now that were actually in it Weve done pretty well for ourselves. The highway patrol has provided for our families throughout our whole lives, Pace said. me think of my Mama. Youre going to like this one too.CHICKEN SPECTACULAR 3 cups cubed cooked chicken 1 package Uncle Bens wild rice prepared according to pkg. 1 can cream of celery soup 1 medium jar sliced pimento 1 medium onion, chopped 1 can French style green beans, drained 1 cup mayonnaise 1 can water chestnuts, sliced Salt and pepper to taste. After preparing the rice, combine with all other ingredients. Place in 9 x 13 casserole and bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until its bubbly and slightly browned. You can add grated Parmesan cheese the last 5-10 minutes if desired. You know me, I cant leave without sharing a dessert for your Easter dinner. This is in keeping with another casserole from way back when. Everyone loves Banana Pudding but lots of folks take the easy way using pudding mix and cool whip but heres the change, this recipe makes it from scratch. When you make it and youll see the difference. Alice is an old friend and fabulous cook who lives in my hometown, Homerville.ALICES BANANA PUDDINGServes 10 1/3 cup all-purpose flour Dash of salt 2 cups 1% milk 1 14-oz. can fat-free sweetened condensed milk 2 egg yolks 2 tsp. vanilla extract 3 cups sliced ripe banana (Alice cuts into small pieces, prefers that to big slices) 45 reduced-fat vanilla wafers 4 egg whites cup sugar Combine flour and salt in a medium saucepan. Gradually stir or whisk in both milks and the yolks, and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 8 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Arrange 1 cup banana pieces in bottom of a 2-quart baking dish. Spoon 1/3 of pudding mixture over banana, top with 15 vanilla wafers. Repeat layers twice, stopping with pudding; then arrange final 15 wafers around inside wall of the dish. (Gently push wafers into pudding.) Beat egg whites at high speed with electric mixer until foamy. Add sugar, 1 tbs. at a time, beating until stiff peaks form and sugar dissolves (2 to 4 minutes). Spread meringue over pudding, sealing to sides of dish. Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutesor until golden. Let cool at least 30 minutes. Youre going to be making this one again and again. Every Easter table needs a centerpiece. I learned how to make this a couple of years ago and its really easy. Egg carton, plastic eggs, small amount of oasis foam (found in Wal-Mart, Hobby Lobby, Michaels) which you let soak in water until its saturated. Push or nest the wet oasis down into one end of the carton and that is where you will stick the stems. You need greenery around the bottom and a few flowers of your choice and look at the end results. My family joins me in wishing you a Happy Easter.

Mike Burroughs presents Pace with his certificate for 25 years as a trooper. RIGHT: Coody receives his commendation from Burroughs. TROOPERSContinued From 1D GENIEContinued From 1D Eat your leafy green veggies Spinach Day is March 26 FROM UF/IFASGAINESVILLE --You dont have to be Popeye to celebrate Spinach Day, March 26. Packed with vitamins and minerals, this leafy green is a nutritional powerhouse, says a researcher at the University of Florida. Spinach is a rich source of nutrients, such as vitamin A, specifically beta-carotene; vitamin K, which helps with blood clotting and bone health; and folate, which reduces the risk of certain birth defects, said Mitch Knutson, professor of nutritional biochemistry with UFs Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. But isnt spinach high in iron, too? Thats a myth, Knutson said. Spinach has a fair amount of iron, but not really much more than other green leafy vegetables. The problem is that the iron in spinach is not very bioavailable. Though spinach may not be high in iron, its strong nutritional profile makes it a great addition to a healthy diet, he said. Theres a large amount of data in the scientific literature showing that people who consume a lot of vegetables, including dark green leafy vegetables, have lower risk of many diseases. So the more spinach and other vegetable foods you can eat, the better, Knutson said. If you dont care for munching on leaves, think beyond the salad when it comes to sneaking spinach into your diet, he said. One easy way to incorporate spinach into your diet is to put it in smoothies. For example, Ill consume nearly two cups of raw spinach that I add to my breakfast fruit smoothie, and it tastes very good, Knutson said. Or you can add it to cooked pasta by pureeing it into pasta sauce. I use this trick on my children because they generally dont like vegetables. Some may wonder whether consuming spinach raw or cooked is healthier. My answer is, if you like spinach raw, eat it raw; if you like it cooked, eat it cooked, Knutson said. Thats because its hard to generalize about the nutritional benefits of raw versus cooked vegetables. Cooking foods breaks them down, making some nutrients more available. On the other hand, cooking can also destroy some nutrients, he explained. At the end of the day, whats important is that youre eating your vegetables, he said. In addition to spinach, you might try other dark, leafy green vegetables such as arugula, kale, collard greens and watercress, which pack a similar nutritional punch, Knutson said. And if you are looking for foods that are in fact high in iron, animal protein such as meat, poultry and fish contain a type of iron thats easily absorbed by the human body. There are some good vegetable sources, too, such as soy beans and soy bean products like tofu, Knutson said.
