By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comVoter apathy, misinformation and a lack of funding for cybersecurity remain worrisome to local election officials as they gear up for the 2018 midterms. Still, even in the face of threats both new and old, Columbia County Assistant Supervisor of Elections Tomi Brown said the system deserves the publics trust. Its a new day with new challenges, Brown wrote in an email to the Lake City Reporter. But the election community is very resilient and very adaptive. The perception that elections are extremely vulnerable to attacks is spreading fast, Brown wrote. The public sees news outlets report on Russian interference in the 2016 election and believes hackers were able to change votes, she said, but that is not the case. Election systems, by design, are probably the most disconnected systems CALL US: (386) 752-1293 SUBSCRIBE TO THE REPORTER: Voice: 755-5445 Fax: 752-9400 Vol. 143, No. 257 TODAYS WEATHER Obituaries . . . . . . . 3A Sports . . . . . 5A Advice & Comics . . 8A Classified . . . . . . . 9A 76 54Partly cloudy, 2A Lake City ReporterTUESDAY MARCH 27, 2018 | YOU R COMMU NITY NE WSPAPE R SINCE 1 874 | $1.00 LAKE CITY RE PORTER.COM George enters race for city District 10 seat, Story below + PLUS >> Locals part of DC rallyON THE MARCH I support the girlsLOCALSee Page 2A See Below SCRABBLE CHAMPSClub House tourney winners, 2A Brown Election security at the top of the list Official says the system is safer than voters think.By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA Fort White man was arrested Saturday night after he allegedly went to an acquaintances home and beat him up because the man came to his home earlier and ate some leftover pie that was in the refrigerator.

Cancer survivor loses pets who helped her hang onBy COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comA waking nightmare befell a local woman last week. It was a nightmare that spiraled quickly from a mundane dream like any other, and it was how Helen Roberson described the events of Friday. Done it a million times, said Roberson. Ive lived here since Ive done it every time the grass need mowed. I park it in the garage. Around 4:45 p.m. she said she finished mowing her yard and parked her riding mower along the right-hand side of the garage of her Southwest Pilots Way home. She ran through the sequence of events that altogether took about 10 minutes: parked the mower, opened the door inside, closed the garage door, washed her hands, walked to the restroom, walked to the living room, sat at the dining room table. And I then I heard something fall, she said. Well what is that? Maybe I locked, maybe my babies got in there. When I opened that door, and that wasnt, it was not five minutes black smoke just rolled out at me. Then she said she grabbed the phone, left the house and called 911. In less than 10 minutes four feet of flames ... it just went through the attic, Robeson said. In five minutes the top was gone. Aside from a destroyed home, she lost her three dogs, her babies, to smoke inhalation. She said they were safely in the backyard while she was working outside and she only saw they were missing after calling for them outside the blazing home firefighters were working to save. She said they likely were frightened from the activity and ran inside. The location of their bodies was the grounds for her theory. They got scared and they went to their safe spot under my bed. They slept with momma so they went to their safe spot, Robeson said. She said they were born in 2014, the same year she was stricken by another tragedy breast cancer. Precious, Sugarbear and Sassy were by her side 24-7 and helped her through her bout with cancer, Roberson said. She showed a picture of the three small, mixed-breed dogs in a custom casket built by her sister all merely looking asleep. Robeson said something else helped her through both tragedies in her life faith. I cant say nothing but God has blessed me beyond blessing, she said. God has taken care of me and he will take care of me now. She pointed to the rubble of the 25-year-old home and said she saw something besides destruction. All I can say, Im telling you, this is a lot to look at. Cancer was a lot to look at, and my babies are a lot to look at. The house is a lot to look at, but Im not looking at all this, she said. I dont see this, I dont see cancer, I miss my dogs and my heart hurts. I see Gods got this. She had few words of advice for others who find themselves in a similar nightmare. All I can tell the people, get out and get your dogs out. What you see is 10 minutes. Her daughter has set up a account for Roberson called the Helen Roberson house fire fund. Wright was dispatched to a Southwest Backwoods Glen address 8:28 p.m. Saturday night for a case involving battery. When Wright arrived he spoke to a female witness who said Andrews came to the residence and was mad that the victim ate some leftover pie in the refrigerator. The witness said Andrews then walked into the victims room and started hitting him with a closed fist after grabbing him and pulling his shirt over his head. The woman said she yelled at Andrews to stop hitting the victim but she ended up getting punched by Andrews on her upper lip. The woman said Andrews then collected items from the home and left with a woman in a gold Chevy Malibu. When Wright spoke to the victim, he corroborated the womans story. The victim reportedly had a small abrasion on his left ear with dry blood, as well as marks on the right side of his neck that resembled possibly being grabbed by the neck, Wright said in his report. He reported that the witness had a cut bottom lip and some marks on her left arm that she told him was caused by Andrews. Another deputy was able to find Andrews and the woman he rode off with at a store in Fort White. The woman claimed Andrews was just trying to defend himself and that the victim is the one that struck Andrews. However, Wright reported that he didnt see any marks on Andrews. Andrews was arrested on an active Columbia County warrant. Due to all the testimonial and physical evidence, I concluded in my investigation that Cody Andrews was the primary aggressor, Wright wrote in his report. FIGHTContinued From 1A Dogs died in house fire started by riding lawnmower Friday. I cant say nothing but God has blessed me beyond blessing, Roberson said. God has taken care of me and he will take care of me now.


The districts roads are still in need of extensive repaving, the stormwater drainage system is still inadequate and career-track jobs are still too sparse, she said. I dont see any improvements in District 10, she said. The will of the districts voters is ignored by the council, George said. We have no voice, she added. Thats the main problem. While the district continued to languish, George said, the council last year voted for the Blanche Hotel renovation project, which involved giving an out-of-town developer $1 million on top of a $4.25 million unsecured loan. They should give that to local people to vitalize downtown, George said. Give them grants to help them. Entrepreneurs, local people who pay taxes. Jefferson ultimately voted against the project, but it was merely token opposition, George said. He already knew it was going to pass, she said. It didnt need his vote to pass. If he was against the Blanche, he would have been against the Blanche from the very beginning. George said she would work to find grants to fund infrastructure upgrades and help renovate dilapidated homes, in addition to advocating for the city to more aggressively court industrial job growth and assisting local businesses. I want to see 10 thrive, she said. George, who holds a masters degree in history and bachelors degrees in political science and criminology from Florida State University, teaches at Pathways Academy, volunteers at Richardson Community Center and sits on the board for Habitat for Humanity in Lake City. She said those roles have prepared her to be a strong negotiator working on behalf of the district. You have to be able to communicate the demands of the people in a fashion that gets results, George said.TodayGardening tipsIts time to plan spring gardens.

The United States called it the largest expulsion of Russian spies in American history, and also shuttered Russias consulate in Seattle, deeming it a counterintelligence threat. Trump took the action to punish Moscow for its alleged poisoning of an ex-intelligence officer in Britain. All told, at least 21 countries have ousted more than 135 Russians, including 23 kicked out earlier by the U.K. In a choreographed show of trans-Atlantic unity, the U.S. and European allies carefully timed their announcements for maximum effect. Within a few hours, at least 16 European Union nations expelled Russians, with more likely to follow. Germany, Poland and France each said it planned to boot four Russian diplomats, the Czech Republic and Lithuania ousted three and Italy, two. Canada also took action, kicking out four Russians and denying three who have applied to enter the country. The list included nations in Russias backyard that have perhaps the most at stake. Ukraine, a non-EU country with its own conflicts with Moscow, was expelling 13 Russians. All three Baltic states said they would make diplomats leave. Almost all of the countries said publicly that those being expelled were actually Russians intelligence operatives working under diplomatic cover. Move was in response to poisoning of ex-spy in U.K. we have, Brown wrote. They dont rely on internet or network connections, and are ballots are on paper, the ultimate hackproof design. Fears over hackers and security vulnerabilities feed directly into voter apathy, she wrote. One of the biggest new threats is getting the message out that voters votes actually do count, and that they can be trusted to be counted accurately and fairly. Thats not to say the system is 100 percent secure, she added. Hackers can still destroy data or temporarily change reported election results, undermining public confidence in the system, just as rogue employees can still tamper with ballots or vote-counting machines. That is why we have such a comprehensive chain of custody and multiple inventory verification procedures for all of our voted ballots, Brown wrote. Firewalls and monitoring devices help protect the offices administrative systems, but the devices and the expertise needed to configure and maintain them are especially expensive for small, rural communities such as Columbia County. But even with our funding problems, we are working effectively with our peers, the Secretary of State and federal agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security to improve our abilities to detect, prevent and respond to the very real threats we face, Brown wrote. The Florida Legislature this year decided not to give local election officials additional money to hire cybersecurity experts, but the state is providing money for intrusion detection, monitoring tools and services from the Department of Homeland Security and affiliated agencies. While the state is funding the internet monitoring equipment this year, its unclear whether that will continue. The biggest hurdle is money, especially in small counties, to pay for the technical expertise needed to respond quickly to changing threats, Brown wrote. The recently signed $1.3 trillion federal spending bill includes $380 million to help states bolster election security. Brown hopes that some of that money finds its way to Columbia County. In todays world, the need for increased staffing, better technology training, better auditing tools, better security tools and better network infrastructure safeguards is real, Brown wrote.

By AARON BEARDAssociated PressRALEIGH, N.C. Welcome to a Final Four filled with past national champions just the way the NCAA selection committee drew it up, right? OK, maybe not. Sure, theres plenty of the expected with 1-seed Villanova making it to San Antonio in pursuit of the programs second title in three seasons. Kansas is the other 1-seed to navigate its way through a maze full of upsets as it pursues its first title since 2008. And plenty figured No. 3 seed Michigan had a good shot to get to the Final Four as the Wolverines chase their first title since the Glen Rice-led group won the programs first in 1989. But Loyola-Chicago? Consider the 11th-seeded Ramblers the representative for all the low seeds UMBC, Marshall and Buffalo, to name a few that pulled off the big stunners in an upset-filled and memorable March. And yes, the Ramblers do have a national championship, won way back in 1963 during the Kennedy administration. Now its time to prepare for next Saturdays first national semifinal (Loyola vs. Michigan ) featuring the upstart against the surging pow-Wild March stabilizes a bitNCAA TOURNAMENTBy JENNA FRYERAssociated PressMARTINSVILLE, Va. When snow at Martinsville Speedway gave NASCAR a rare day off, Clint Bowyer loaded his car with kids and drove them to North Carolina for a day at the Hall of Fame. As Bowyer returned to the track for Mondays rescheduled race, he told his 3-year-old son he wanted to take a picture with him in victory lane. Cash Bowyer told his father he wanted a checkered flag. Both father and son got their wish. Bowyer snapped a 190-race losing streak dating to 2012 with a dominating victory at Martinsville Speedway. Mondays win continued the strong start to the NASCAR season for Stewart-Haas Racing, which has won four of the first six races to start the year. For whatever reason, it felt right driving up here. Its such a cool place to be able to drive up through the countryside on a two-lane road and think about the race, Bowyer said. I told (Cash) this morning, I was like, Dammit, weve got to get our picture in victory lane. He told me he wanted a checkered flag. Hes really proud of that checkered flag! Clint Bowyer said as the toddler waived the flag, and then leaned his head on his fathers shoulder.

PREP VOLLEYBALL COLLEGE BASKETBALLFlorida State returns bulk of roster from Elite Eight teamBy JOE REEDY Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida State surprised many by making consecutive trips to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2012. When next season begins, the Seminoles will not be considered an underdog after their first Elite Eight appearance in 25 years. Leonard Hamilton will have most of his squad back after the season ended with a 58-54 loss to Michigan on Saturday in the West Region final. That is the opposite from a year ago when he lost four starters and his top three scorers. That is why many back in October thought this would be a transition season for the Seminoles before they could make another run for a high seed and contend in the Atlantic Coast Conference next season. I dont know if we arrived a year early or not, Hamilton said about his teams 23-12 season. We very well could have won the game and be on our way to San Antonio but we didnt. The Seminoles biggest question going into the offseason is if the NCAA will grant an extra year of eligibility to leading scorer Phil Cofer? The 6-foot-8 forward, who averaged 12.8 points, missed most of the 2015-16 season due to a foot injury. Cofer and school officials have been optimistic that the NCAA will grant the request. If Cofer does return, this could be Hamiltons most experienced squad during his 16-year tenure at Florida State. Hamilton would have nine players back who average 10 minutes or more per game. Seminoles could have nine players back in 2018-19. Villanova, Kansas join the quartet as only one seeds.FSU continued on 7ABowyer snaps losing streakDriver takes checkered flag at Martinsvillve, first win in 190 races.BOWYER continued on 6ABy JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comTRENTON Its starting to look like Columbia can beat any team in the state. And the Lady Tigers believe it. Class 7A No. 8 Columbia scored five runs in the second and third innings and used timely defense to knock off Class 1A No. 1 Trenton 5-2 on the road Monday night. Its the second win by the Lady Tigers over a ranked team in the last three games following their 1-0 shutout over Class 7A No. 3 Gainesville last Thursday. Although that victory came over a district rival, this one carries plenty of more weight not only locally, but nationally. Trenton came into the matchup ranked 23rd in the country by the Xcellent 25 Writers Poll following its own win over Gainesville in extra innings on Mar. 8. Theyre really solid top to bottom. They have a great defense, a great pitcher, a great offense and we came out here and just had confidence, Columbia shortstop S.K. Lewis said. I feel like Columbia knocks off Class 1A No. 1 and nationally ranked Trenton on the road.RANK continued on 10A A5

T UESDAY, MARCH 27, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER 7A NCAA WOMENS TOURNAMENTUConn routs South Carolina, heads back to Final FourAssociated PressALBANY, N.Y. Crystal Dangerfield led the way as top-seeded UConn routed No. 2 South Carolina 94-65 on Monday night to reach the national semifinals for a record 11th consecutive year. The Huskies broke a tie with John Wooden and the UCLA mens team for the Division I record for consecutive Final Four appearances. UConn is headed to the national semifinals for the 19th time, breaking a tie with Tennessee for the most in womens basketball history. Dangerfield scored 19 of her 21 points in the first half. Gabby Williams had 23 points as UConn scored the most points in school history for this round of the NCAA Tournament. The Huskies (36-0) quickly turned it into a mismatch with stellar 3-point shooting. Dangerfield scored 19 of her 21 points in the first half. Gabby Williams had 23 points as UConn scored the most points in school history for this round of the NCAA Tournament. Aja Wilson had 27 points for South Carolina (29-7). UConn will face former Big East rival Notre Dame on Friday night in Columbus, Ohio. Notre Dame 84, Oregon 74: In Spokane, Wash., Kathryn Westbeld scored 20 points, Jessica Shepard added 18 and Notre Dame reached the Final Four for the eighth time in school history by defeating Oregon on Monday night. Westbeld came up with the biggest game of her Notre Dame career despite being slowed by an ankle injury from the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Westbeld had scored a combined 12 points in the previous four games, but she teamed with Shepard for an inside attack that hurt the Ducks. Westbeld made 9 of 12 shots. Notre Dame (33-3) outscored Oregon 52-38 in the paint and outrebounded the Ducks 51-29 in the Spokane Regional final. Arike Ogunbowale added 19 points and Marina Mabrey had 15 for the Irish. Despite a handful of costly injuries along the way, the Irish are back in a familiar spot in the national semifinals. Its the sixth Final Four for Notre Dame since 2011 and old friend UConn awaits in the semis Friday night in Columbus, Ohio. First-team all-American Sabrina Ionescu led Oregon (33-5) with 26 points. Oregon shot 8 of 31 in the second half and Ionescu had just seven points after the break. Terance Mann, a 6-6 junior guard, led the team in rebounding (5.4 per game) and was its leading scorer for most of the season at 12.6 points. There are going to be a lot of veterans. This was a learning year but we are going to be great next year, Cofer said. The Seminoles will lose Braian Angola to graduation. The senior guard averaged 12.5 points and led the team in 3-pointers with 64. Hamilton was pleased with how much the Seminoles developed throughout the season. The two players that exemplified that the most were sophomore Trent Forrest and freshman Ike Obiagu. Forrest, a 6-5 guard, was Florida States best player down the stretch, averaging 12.6 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.8 assists over the final 10 games. Obiagu, a seven-foot center from Nigeria, had 25 of his teamhigh 71 blocks in the final eight games. At the end we showed that we had grown and learned and made progress mentally and emotionally, Hamilton said. We have a lot to be proud of. We can learn, improve and grow from the challenges and be even better. Florida State will also have a more challenging non-conference schedule next season. Besides their yearly matchup with Florida, the Seminoles will participate in the AdvoCare Invitational in Orlando as part of a field that includes Villanova, Memphis, Oklahoma State and LSU. We are going to come back with a bigger edge and know what we have to do. Hopefully we can pick up right where we left off, Obiagu said.Hamilton: I wish I could have done betterFlorida State coach Leonard Hamilton says he wishes he could have done better in making postgame comments during an awkward exchange with a reporter following the Seminoles Elite Eight loss to Michigan. In a statement posted on the programs Twitter account Sunday, Hamilton said he was impacted by the emotions as he answered questions from reporter Dana Jacobson following the 58-54 loss Saturday. Jacobson had asked why his Seminoles didnt foul after Michigans Duncan Robinson grabbed a defensive rebound with Michigan up 4 and just 11 seconds remaining, allowing the clock to run out. Hamilton was immediately defensive and dodged Jacobsons question for a while before getting around to an answer, though he almost walked off before returning. Hamilton said Sunday Jacobson was doing her job in asking the questions.UF basketball agrees to series with ButlerGAINESVILLE -Florida and Butler will square off each of the next two seasons, with the home-and-home series starting in Gainesville during the Gators 2018-19 non-conference season. Florida will travel to Butler for the return game in 2019-20. We have a lot of respect for Butler, and were excited about this series, head coach Mike White said. Our goal is always to play a really tough non-conference schedule, not only to prepare our team for the SEC schedule, but also because we have great fans who deserve to see us play a high-level schedule. In addition to Butler, Gator fans at Exactech Arena at the Stephen C. OConnell Center will also see Michigan State this season, as that homeand-home series concludes after UFs trip to East Lansing in 2015-16. The Gainesville meeting against the Spartans had been delayed, first by UFs arena renovation in 2016-17 and then by Big Ten scheduling in 2017-18UF softball sweeps No. 8 Texas A&MGAINESVILLE The Florida softball team completed the series sweep of No. 8 Texas A&M with a 7-3 victory at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium Monday evening. Its the sec ond Southeastern Conference series sweep of the season for UF. Jordan Matthews broke out to record three RBI after going 1-for-2 at the plate with a run scored and two walks, one of which was intentional. The patience at the plate for the Gators (27-3, 7-2 SEC) proved to be fruitful in the first inning as the Aggies issued six walks and one hit. The result was RBI walks by Matthews, Aleshia Ocasio and Hannah Adams, before Sophia Reynoso executed a bunt single to give Florida a 4-0 lead over Texas A&M (29-7, 3-3 SEC). The Gators will make a quick turnaround to play a double header against FIU today at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium. First pitch is scheduled for 4 p.m.Gators baseball takes series over ArkansasGAINESVILLE Nelson Maldonado played hero on Sunday afternoon, launching a two-run homer in the seventh inning to propel the Gators to a 5-4 victory and series win over No. 4 Arkansas. Prior to the home run, Maldonado had scuffled in the past week, slumping through a 3-for-22 (.136) stretch going back to last weekend.FSUs Lueck named ACC Player of the WeekTALLAHASSEE Junior Jackson Lueck earned his first career ACC Player of the Week honor after hitting .368 with three home runs and 10 RBI this week, helping FSU to a twogame sweep of No. 21 UCF and a series win at North Carolina, ending with a 9-4 win on Sunday. During the five-game stretch, Lueck led FSU in runs (7), home runs (3) and tied with Nick Derr with 10 RBI. Lueck is FSUs first player of the week in 2018. Tyler Holton was a five-time pitcher of the week in 2017 and Dylan Busby earned player of the week honors once last season.FSU softball still perfect in ACC playTALLAHASSEE Holding of a late rally by the Orange, No. 14 Florida State (26-6, 6-0 ACC) continued its undefeated start to conference play with a 5-4 win over Syracuse (15-11, 4-5 ACC) on Sunday afternoon at JoAnne Graf Field. Florida States 7-8-9 hit ters provided the bulk of the offense in the series finale, as Zoe Casas, Korina Rosario and Leslie Farris batted a combined 5-for-9 with a Casas double, a Farris home run, three RBIs and two runs scored. The victory marks the 32nd ACC win in a row for Florida State, moving the Seminoles into a tie with Fresno State for the eighth-longest conference winning streak in NCAA history, matching the streak the Bulldogs put together in the Mountain West in 2015-16. It also completed the 33rd sweep in the last 43 ACC series for FSU, as the Seminoles improved to 113-10 (.919%) in their last 123 regular season conference games, dating back to 2012.ROUNDUPer-conference team in an undercard to the heavyweight matchup of top seeds in the nightcap. Its a particular relief for Kansas, which had a No. 1 seed for the third straight season and lost in the Elite Eight the past two seasons including in 2016 to Villanova as the Wildcats marched to the national title. You think about it, hey, in their careers all weve been is the No. 1 overall seed, the No. 2 overall seed and the No. 3 overall seed and havent gotten to a Final Four, coach Bill Self said after Sundays overtime win against Duke in Omaha, Nebraska. So that means that these guys have done so well to put us in a position but we hadnt kicked the door in yet. Im happy for us, staff, school, everything, but Im more happy for these guys because they deserve to experience what the best of college basketball is and that will be what takes place Saturday and Monday. FORESHADOWING?: If youre into good omens, note that Kansas won its last title in San Antonio by beating North Carolina and Memphis under Self a decade ago. And that was the programs first since Danny Manning and The Miracles won the 1988 title as a No. 6 seed now an even 30 years ago. So maybe years ending in eight bring a bit of luck for the Jayhawks? RANKING THE SEEDS: Villanova was the No. 2 overall seed behind Virginia on Selection Sunday, putting the Wildcats as the headliner followed by Kansas at third. Michigan was No. 11 and Loyola-Chicago was No. 46. WINING UGLY: Villanova and Michigan should arrive in Texas with an extra bit of confidence after winning games when they shot poorly. The Wildcats shot just 33 percent and made 4 of 24 3-pointers (.167) in Sundays East final against Texas Tech The Wolverines shot nearly 39 percent but made just 4 of 22 3s (.182) in Saturday nights West final against Florida State On top of that, they combined to make 4 of 27 3s after halftime (.148). Yet here they are. TITLE HISTORY: Top seeds have hoisted the trophy on the final Monday night of the season in 18 of the past 26 NCAA Tournaments, while No. 3 seeds have won three times (Syracuse in 2003, Florida in 2006, Connecticut in 2011) in that span. Villanova remains the lowest-seeded team to win a title as a No. 8 in 1985. NOT SO WILD AFTER ALL: With all the upsets, it sure looked like the Final Four had a chance to be filled with surprises. It didnt end up that way. The sum of the seeds for the four teams is 16, the highest since 2014 (18). But it was a far cry from joining the four other years since the tournament began seeding teams in 1979 that the combined total was at least 20: 1980 (21), 2000 (22), 2006 (20) and 2011 (26). The last two of those wer e the most r ecent to feature an 11-seed before LoyolaChicagos run, with George Mason getting there in 2006 and VCU doing it in 2011. The only other Final Four to feature a No. 11 seed came in 1986 with LSU, though the combined seed total was 15 on the strength of 1-seeds Duke and Kansas, and 2-seed Louisville (the eventual champion behind freshman Pervis Ellison) joining the Tigers in Dallas. ACCS MISS: The Atlantic Coast Conference was trying to get a team into the national-title game for the fourth straight year but ultimately fell short of the Final Four. Duke won the championship in 2015. Rival North Carolina lost to Villanova in the 2016 title game before coming all the way back and winning the 2017 title against Gonzaga. And 10th-seeded Syracuse was a surprise semifinalist in 2016 after upsetting No. 1 seed Virginia in a regional final. IMPROVED NUMBERS: ESPN said none of the 17.3 million entrees had the Elite Eight teams correct in its Tournament Challenge picks contest. But 550 people correctly had the Final Four teams. Villanova was the most popular pick to get there, winning the East Region on 58.4 percent of the submitted brackets. FSU Continued From 5A NCAA Continued From 5Astands to greet the fans who returned to Martinsville two days after a snowstorm pushed all track activity to Monday. Bowyers victory was his first driving for SHR, the team he joined as Tony Stewarts replacement last year. The move to SHR was supposed to turn Bowyers fortunes around, but his struggles continued through his first year in the No. 14 Ford. He finally figured it out on the short track in Virginia and won for the first time since his victory at Charlotte in October 2012. Bowyer had led just 145 combined laps the last four years and bettered that Monday with 215 laps led and his first career Martinsville victory. It was the ninth career victory for Bowyer, but first since he was a legitimate title contender in 2012 before the bottom fell out. He was snared in a cheating scandal with Michael Waltrip Racing, that team never recovered and folded, and Bowyer has been trying to find his footing since. He thanked Gene Haas and Stewart for bringing him to SHR. To give this old dog a fresh chance and fresh blood with a new opportunity finally to get the 14 in victory lane is just a weight off the shoulders, Bowyer said. Its been a long time. You start to question if you can get it done or not. Bowyer began his celebratory burnout before he completed a cool-down lap, and then climbed on the hood of his cars with his arms raised in victory. He jumped into the arms of his SHR crew, and then was met by his son, who had never before seen his father win a Cup race. Cash Bowyer exchanged high-fives with the SHR crew then sat on top of the winning car. Later, in victory lane, Clint Bowyer hugged the Martinsville signature trophy grandfather clock, chugged several beers, and let his son soak in his first post-race celebration. I wanted that damn clock, Bowyer said. How are we going to get it home? What do you do? Im going to ratchet strap it to my wifes SUV. Were going to be the Clampetts with our trophy ratchet strapped to the roof of the SUV, but its coming home. Bowyer is the first driver to notch victories driving a Chevrolet, Toyota and Ford. Now the Kansas native, a die-hard Jayhawks fan, goes into NASCARs off weekend ready to celebrate his victory and KUs spot in the Final Four. As much as he pleaded with wife, Lorra, the victory party wont be traveling to San Antonio to watch Kansas play. It was a good week to be a Kansan, he said. Hey, babe: I mean, this is a positive thing can I ride this wave of momentum and make it? Its KU. Lorra Bowyer shook her head no. Yeah, Im going to be watching in my basement, he smiled. Kyle Busch finished second in a Toyota, and Ryan Blaney, who led 145 laps and won the second stage, was third in a Ford. Martin Truex Jr., the defending series champion and winner last week in California, was fourth in a Toyota. Bowyer teammate Kevin Harvick, winner of three races this season, was fifth and followed by Joey Logano in another Ford. Alex Bowman was seventh and AJ Allmendinger eighth in the highest finishes for Chevrolet drivers. Busch was frustrated after his third runner-up finish of the season. I mean, we take solace, sure, but you know, ultimately were here to win each and every week, he said.BRAKE CHECKThe closing laps were eventful for Denny Hamlin and Kevin Harvick, who made contact late in the race. But Harvick insisted he didnt intentionally brake-check Hamlin at the end. He hit me a couple times and I was just trying to make sure I had my car under control, Harvick said. Doing so meant Harvick slowed in front of Hamlin, and Hamlin crumpled the nose of his car when he ran into the back of Harvick. He just got to me and, I think, bumped me three or four times, Hamlin said. And then I was just bumping him back and he brakechecked me. I probably should have brake-checked him in the first place. They were just some light bumps here, and then slammed on the brakes. So classy. Hamlin, who won the first stage, finished 12thALLMENDINGER SHINESAJ Allmendinger is a two-time runner-up at Martinsville who expects to do well on the paperclip. With his eighth-place finish, he felt fairly satisfied. These are the places we know that we have a better chance at, and we have to take advantage of it, Allmendinger said. So I would say Im OK with eighth.UP NEXTNASCAR is off for Easter and the Cup Series returns to action April 8 at Texas Motor Speedway. Jimmie Johnson won last year at Texas and then made it two straight the next week with a victory at Bristol. Johnson goes into the break stuck in a career-worst 29-race losing streak. NASCAR Continued From 5AJAE HONG/Associated PressMichigan guard Charles Matthews (1) shoots against Florida State forward Mfiondu Kabengele (25) during the first half of Saturdays regional final in Los Angeles.


LAKECITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICSTUESDAY, MARCH 27, 2018 A8 DEAR ABBY: I am an only child who has lived at home all her life -44 years. My father recently passed away, so now it is just Mom and me. She has become extremely clingy. She is jealous of my friends and feels I must be with her for almost everything. What can I do? I think I should move out, but she will take it badly. Also, Im concerned about her health. Shes 71, diabetic and has a heart condition. Is this a lost cause or is there hope? -HOPING IN FLORIDA DEAR HOPING: I agree that you should move. It would have been better had you cut the umbilical cord while your father was still alive, but better late than never. Are there relatives or friends who can look in on your mother regularly? If there are, enlist their help. She should not be allowed to become isolated and solely dependent on one person. Look into grief support groups and other programs for seniors in your community. If your mother needs a companion and your family finances allow it, hire someone to stay with her. Its time you had a life of your own. Consider it the price of your fr eedom. DEAR ABBY: A few months ago, one of my best friends was dumped by his long-term boyfriend. I was shocked because everyone thought they were an ideal couple, and theirs was a relationship to model all of ours after. A few days ago, my friend finally felt comfortable enough to confide that his ex had cheated on him with another friend of ours, which was another shock. Since then, I have been conflicted about how to act around the ex, whom I considered to be a good friend until this hap pened. I am tempted to lash out at him for hurting someone we care about, but I dont want to add more drama. We all are in undergrad together, so we see each other every day. Its getting harder not to stick up for my friend at this point. How do I suppress my anger in order to be a friend to both of them, even if the ex may not deserve it? -ANGRY IN THE SOUTH DEAR ANGRY: A way to do that would be to remind yourself that there are usually two sides to a story. Bide your time and wait to see what hap pens. Whether you want to remain friends with the cad will become apparent with time. Remaining quiet may be the better choice, particularly if the ideal couple decides to reunite. DEAR ABBY: I am a 60-year-old widow who wants to begin dating. I have some health problems, although they are neither fatal nor limit my energy. I have excellent insurance and the monetary resources for the needed treatment. Im concerned that these conditions might scare off any suitors. How upfront must I be about them? I dont intend to lie, but must I give an extensive medical disclosure on the first few dates? -WANTS TO BE UPFRONT DEAR WANTS: I dont think your first conversations should include an or gan recital. However, if a relationship appears to be blossoming into something more than social, the honest thing to do would be to disclose. Abigail Van Only child senses time has come to leave widowed mom DILBERT BABY BLUES BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C. FRANK & ERNEST FOR BETTER OR WORSE ZITS HAGAR THE HORRIBLE SNUFFY SMITH GARFIELD CLASSIC PEANUTS DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES | THE LAST WORD BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Network and spend time with people who can offer good advice, but don't buy into someone else's plan. If you are going to invest in anyone, it should be in you. Gather information and prepare to do your own thing. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Personal change can be made, but don't display what you are trying to pursue. It's best to get things up and running to your satisfaction before you share with others. Keep your secrets hidden from anyone likely to make a fuss. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can improve your personal life with a little effort and a couple of changes. Reach out to someone you think can help you make adjustments to your lifestyle, and you will develop a relationship that brings you both good fortune. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Keep your voice down and your opinions to yourself. Getting into an argument with someone can ruin your relationship. Concentrate on doing a good job and taking care of your responsibilities with finesse and a positive attitude. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Get involved, make plans, communicate and accelerate to reach the destination that beckons you. Make the most of your attributes. Create alterations that will excite you and prompt you to move forward with anticipation, but don't go over budget. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The changes going on around you should be carefully viewed before you decide whether to walk away or to participate. Consider who is involved and what everyone else has to contribute before making a commitment. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Address responsibilities and move on to more enjoyable pastimes. Get involved in projects or events that allow you to use your creativity and intelligence. Working in partnership with others will be a confidence booster that leads to an interesting proposal. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Veer toward a simpler lifestyle. Be reluctant to engage in something that is indulgent or that will take you out of your financial comfort zone. Personal change should start within and encourage you to be the best you can be. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Get moving. Business trips, communication and networking will be educational and give you insight into what's possible and what isn't. Don't overreact if something doesn't go your way; look for an alternative route. Self-improvement and romance are highlighted. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Stay on top of technology and new trends. Reinvent something you used to enjoy doing. Don't sweat the little things or those who annoy you. Keeping a clear head and staying focused on what you do best are favored. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Stay focused on money, how you handle it and how you earn your income. You can make some alterations to your lifestyle if you consider a partnership with someone trying to reach similar goals. A joint venture looks promising. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Listen and think matters through to the end, especially when dealing with your colleagues or a superior. Knowing what's expected of you will help you deliver and receive the rewards you deserve. Actor Julian Glover is 82. Actor Jerry Lacy is 81. Actor Michael York is 75.

The sopho more recently set the school record in the event at the Friday Knight Invite at Creekside High School on Mar. 16 with a jump of 37 feet, 8.25 inches. weve gotten to a point where were all super fired up just to be on the field playing and I feel like we all played really hard. That team is really good and I feel like we did a really good job of controlling the game from the first inning on. Columbia (13-3) was on its heels in the bottom of the seventh inning as Trenton (12-2) had runners on first and second and only one out. But two close calls highlighted a thrilling and emotional finish, with both plays going in favor of the road team. After CrisDeona Beasley had walked Lillie Wilkerson and then Grace Guthrie, Hallie Bryant slapped a ball towards Lewis. Wilkerson bolted towards third base but Lewis quickly backhanded the roller and raced her towards the bag, beating her by inches for the second out of the inning. Their slappers were very good and they had been slapping up and down so I knew it was probably going to come that way and I remember just trying to get there, get there and get there quick, Lewis said. It was a backhand so I knew I could probably get her at third and I didnt realize how close she was behind me so I tried to slide in. Its big moments like that. It was a good play to get Cris out. Cris pitched a great game and I love it when we can make big plays for her because she pitches her heart out every game. Im just super excited. That call fired up Trentons coaching staff but not as much as the final out, when Josie NesSmith hit a ball just fair outside the batters box that immediately popped up and hit her in the leg. The umpire called her out and rightfully so but not in the eyes of Trentons coaches, who were screaming while Columbia celebrated another big win with Beasley, who gave up four hits with three walks and a hit batter while striking out six. You go back and forth and sometimes youll go, oh, happy birthday to us. But she was out and that was a good call, Columbia coach Trudy Andrews said. Its hard to end a game like that against a passionate team but it was a good call. Columbia opened the scoring in the top of the second when Lucy Giebeig and Beasley reached on back-to-back singles before Caroline Lewis drove them in with a twoRBI single. Trenton got a run back in the bottom half on Lille Wilkersons RBI single but Columbia created plenty of separation in the third. The Lady Tigers sent eight batters to the plate in the frame against Trenton pitcher Darian Ingram, with Morgan Hoyle leading off with a single and Story Giebeig following with a double. Dara Gaylard then delivered a two-RBI single to score both runners and Gaylard later scored on a sacrifice fly by Beasley to put Columbia up 5-1. Giebeig and Hoyle both went 2 for 3 on the night, with Giebeig also reaching on a walk and Hoyle getting on via a hit-by-pitch. Whitney Lee also went 2 for 4, including a double. Ingram settled down after the third though, only surrendering one hit over the final four innings despite giving up 10 beforehand and not registering a single strikeout. But her offense couldnt provide her much support against Beasley, only scoring one more time in the fifth. Even that run was a bit controversial, as Bryant made it home from third before Columbia finished off a double play from the outfield where Lucy Giebeig made the catch and threw NesSmith out as she tried to slide back to first for the third out. I think she settled down but we cant get complacent and thats what we talked about, Andrews said. We need to keep putting runs on the board against these teams. Any team that we play can come back on you so you have to keep playing hard but I liked our grit and I liked our effort tonight. It was awesome, by all the girls. The two teams will meet again on Apr. 9 in Lake City. Columbias next game is at home on Thursday at 7:30 against District 3-7A rival Middleburg.
