Johnson is seeking election to the Columbia County School Board District 1 seat in the upcoming election where he hopes to draw from a vast pool of educational experience to improve the local school district. Johnson, 67, has 12 years experience as the school board District 1 representative. He served in the post from 2002 2014. He lost in 2014 to the current school board district 1 incumbent Danny Greene, by 57 votes. Thats one of my motivations for trying again because the margin of error in that election was very small, Johnson said. Johnson said the primary reason that he is trying to become the District 1 school board representative again is because he wants to improve the safety of the schools.

Who would even think of coming in here and doing this? said Helen Roberson, while looking through the interior of her Pilots Way home that burnt on Friday. It just leaves you speechless, you know? Im being strong, Im holding my head up, Im believing, Im looking for ward and creeps come out of the woodwork, she said. The television was taken from the charred remains overnight Monday, she said. Her story appeared on the front page of the Lake City Reporter the following day. The impact of the theft, she said, was nearly greater than the fire itself. I think it surpasses what I felt when this happened. This is a mistake or whatever. That was intentional. I see youre down now Im going to see what I can get from ya. She said she noticed the television was missing while going over an inventory of items lost to the fire for insurance purposes. She said she also noticed her computer was gone.

Tenebrae service set for Good FridayCovenant First Presbyterian Church invites the community to A Service of Darkness on Good Friday, March 30, at 7:30 pm. The service, entitled, Hear Us, Holy Jesus, is by Douglas E. Wagner. Bill Poplin will be directing the 24-voice choir. There will be scripture readings, congregational responses, and choral meditations. After each meditation the sanctuary will be darkened a little. The Tenebrae Service dates from the 6th century. It is a dramatic service to remember the death and passion of Jesus Christ. The literal translation of the Latin word tenebrae is shadows; thus the service moves from light to darkness. In the early church it was celebrated on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of Holy Week. The purpose of the Tenebrae Service is to help us focus on the total impact of the darkest day in the history of Christianity, the day that Jesus died on the cross. This Good Friday service will encourage the congregation to consider how their lives should reflect this historical and spiritual event. This will be purely a service of reflection. There is no admission charge and no offering will be taken. For more information call 386365-4932. Submitted he would like to have implemented in regard to the school districts current safety policy. I just recently reviewed our safety policy and they are very inadequate in terms of the specific details as to what we should do to prevent shootings in our schools, he said. I would like to see a lot more done to prevent shootings in our school as a preventive measure, not one that addresses the issue once the shooting has begun. I want to do something that prevents a shooter from getting on campus. Thats what I would like to see put into the policy. As the school board District 1 representative, Johnson said he wants to improve the school districts graduation rate and establish tutoring in local community centers. Johnson has a vast knowledge in education working in various capacities in different school districts, inside the classroom as well as a school administrator. He worked at the alternative school in Columbia County for three years. He also worked in the Hamilton County School district as a guidance counselor and administrator of the districts alternative school for three years as well. Johnson then began working in Suwannee County at its alternative school where he was the lead teacher for a year. He then taught world geography and civics at Suwannee Middle School from 2006-2016. Johnson has been working in public education for 17 years. He also taught while he worked for the department of corrections. He said his years of experience as an educator and 12 years experience on the school board will be beneficial to the community. A major part of a board is to understand the business aspect of the board as well as practical knowledge of what programs would be most effective in helping students learn and for schools to operate most effectively and efficiently, Johnson said. Having already under my belt close to 200-300 hours of training as a school board member through the Florida School Boards Association, I think would be a great benefit to the school district. JOHNSONContinued From 1ABy COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comAfter 10 years resident life will return to campus. Florida Gateway College will soon provide the whole collegiate experience to the five counties of students it serves through its renovated cafeteria, student center, gym, intramural program and now with the addition of two wings of resident life facilities soon to house up to 44 students. Granger Hall once held four wings of dorms that were disbanded in 2008, but 10 years later two of those will return to their original purpose, and beginning fall semester once again house male and female students in the separate wings. The trustees have officially approved that we can reopen the dorms. Were working on our policies and procedures as we speak, said FGC President Lawrence Barrett Wednesday. Barrett and Executive Director of Media and Public Information Mike McKee took the Lake City Reporter on a tour of what will soon be the wings of the new resident life facilities and presented prototypes of the finished rooms. Its still a work in progress, said McKee. Walking first through the doors of Granger Hall, the administrators spoke about the future purposes of each space. A common area will sit at the entrance, followed by the future home of the resident life coordinator, who will oversee the day to day needs of the students living there, many of whom will be athletes, following the return of collegiate sports also disbanded about 10 years ago to FGC. Bathrooms, and bathing areas were down the hallway male on one side, female on the other with free in-house laundry facilities. Beyond those were the living spaces in newly carpeted hallways designed to reduce noise, with surveillance cameras located at the far end of each. The rooms are furnished, but McKee said its up to the students to arrange the layout. The students will have their own design to the room, McKee said. Barrett said pricing for on-campus living will run $1,800 a semester and $3,600 annually and food plans at $1,800 or $900 per semester. 10 years later, dorm life returning to FGC CO REY ARWOOD/Lake City ReporterExterior view of Granger Hall.

All of the items were electronics, which she said gave an idea of the perpetrators age. Everything in here is smoke-damaged and no good, but if you take it then I cant get my money for it because I got to account for it, Roberson said in reference to an insurance claim. The fire that quickly consumed the roof of the home started accidentally from a lawnmower Roberson parked in her garage after her evening yard work last week. Roberson said she lost her three best friends in the fire, the dogs she got the same year she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014. Their food and water bowls were in front of the empty television stand, food still inside. The house, once a tinderbox, was now soaked from local firefighters who extinguished the blaze. Inside the home the roof was gutted and sunlight peered through the charred support beams the ribcage of the house once protecting its occupants and their possessions now exposed. Firefighters had peeled the tin roof back to drench remaining hot spots. Soaked insulation, chunks of ceiling, carpeted floor nearly everything in the house squished and water rose at each footstep four days after the blaze. Now Roberson said shes going to have to change course from personally recovering and mourning what she called her babies, to securing the few remaining items in order to report them to her insurance company. She had new advice for those that find themselves in a similar situation, You better secure. You better secure. FIREContinued From 1A
Getting in a trade war with China or anyone else is economically suicidal, a way to disrupt everything and anything, and here is hope that what we are really seeing is the art of the deal. What you do is make egregious demands and then back down as the other side sees the hurt of obstinance and the benefit of concessions. Maybe thats what the Trump administration is really up to in its talk about $60 billion worth of tariffs on China, and there are signs of such a thing. China, in addition to saying it will fight back mightily, is also murmuring it will sit down and talk. Our treasury secretary has said talk sounds good to him, and although there has been no followup, the United States has already told the European Union and most other allies to relax, that the uranium and steel tariffs will not apply to them. The thing is that nervousness about China still reigns supreme, and maybe it should, considering that the famous Trump book, The Art of the Deal, was co-authored (actually written) by someone who thinks Trump is a klutz of a bargainer. His name is Tony Schwartz, he once spent lots of time with Trump working on this book, and familiarity bred contempt. Trump has been worried to death about our trade deficit, the amount of money we spend for imports compared to the lesser amount of money we get for exports. The concept is meaningless. Nothing would be traded if it were not for mutual advantage. For every dollar we spend, we get something in return, an asset, something useful, maybe something essential in making products here. It is true that some specific industries have been hurt by globalization, but the main cause of fewer jobs for the unskilled is technology and too little training. Globalization is an overall benefit, although the Chinese are cheats. They have broken lots of rules by way of their own tariffs and subsidies. They have also stolen a lot of our intellectual property. We should sit down to straighten things out, but the way to do it is for the United States and a whole big bunch of the rest of the world to confront China as a body. Our allies in Asia and Europe seem to be willing, and China will be a whole lot more impressed by this gang than by facing one nation that accounts for a fraction of one percent of its GDP. To see what a trade war could do, consider the example of farmers. China imports lots of food for its 1.4 billion people and our farmers say thank you very much for not letting our plows rust. Any number of other businesses could face going out of business if things really got going, and remember this: Tariffs are really taxes on the citizenry. Less competition means not just fewer jobs but higher prices. Purchasing power is whats important for consumers, and prices are as much a factor in purchasing power as wages. Interestingly, Trump is getting more support from Democrats on his trade stance than Republicans, many of whom are furious. For instance, Elizabeth Warren, a Democratic senator from Massachusetts and someone who thinks enterprise should not be all that free, says look, lets not be afraid of tariffs. One reason Republicans could not get the two-thirds vote necessary to override a Trump veto of a congressional bill thwarting his ambitions is that too many Democrats would refuse to go along. The good news is that the new director of the National Economic Counsel is Larry Kudlow, a highly able economist who is not just another person who agrees with Trump on everything. He disagrees on this issue and communicates terrifically. Maybe, by employing some version of the other of the art of the deal, he can change Trumps mind. To the Editor: I have read the recent articles in the Lake City Reporter concerning the opioid crisis. There is no argument there is a huge problem locally to nationwide with illegal use of prescription pain medications. But I have some concerns. Why is a huge law firm suddenly interested in pursuing numerous class action suits to help local governments recoup expenses from the drug manufactures? I dont think it is due to a great concern for the communities where the suits would be filed. If too many restrictions are put on dispensing pain medications to patients that need them, like patients with terminal conditions, then how will they be able to manage their pain levels? It appears some of the focus is displaced. The majority of medical providers are very responsible; however, I do not believe in either article it was mentioned about some prescribing providers being irresponsible and possibly too free to prescribe opioids for pain management when a less or non-addictive alternative would be available. Raids on pill mills have been prevalent in the news over the past year. Providers could also discuss options of offering patients various therapies in place of narcotic pain medications. If patterns emerge where a patient is constantly coming back to request more pain meds before the current prescription has ended then this needs to be closely evaluated by the prescriber. If a provider is notified by a pharmacy that the patient has received another opioid pain prescription from another provider for early dispensing, then the med should not be ordered. There is a computerized system to keep track, through pharmacies, to flag and alert pharmacies of narcotics being requested either too early, numerous times, or frequently by the same provider. The pharmacy in turn notifies the provider, but if the provider orders these meds to be dispensed anyway, then the provider should be ultimately responsible. Another issue is that in the article in the March 2 edition of the Reporter states that pharmacy owners (possibly pharmacists) may be sued for dispensing opioids. This should not be made a concern of a licensed pharmacy following all policies, rules and regulations. If the patient brings in a legally written prescription for a narcotic and it is determined the patient is not receiving a duplicated dose of medications or the prescription is being filled too soon, then the pharmacy can legally dispense the medication. If the pharmacist notifies the provider this is a duplicate or early request for a narcotic, and the provider requests that it be dispensed anyway, then the pharmacy should refuse to dispense the med. This sometimes results in the seeker going to another pharmacy, or alternative source, until they get what they want. If the dispensing pharmacy failed to follow the protocol for potential abuse, then they should be held accountable. Current DEA regulations, which also track prescribing habits of providers, and various statutes are in place to address opioid dispensing. If medical providers, law enforcement and pharmacies would work more closely, then curbing the illegal use of prescription meds could be a possibility. At some point, each individual is responsible for their actions. Some may have unfortunately become addicted to opioids through having the med dispensed legally for pain management; frequency of dosing and quantities dispensed should be closely controlled. The medical provider should be aware of this and assist with treatment for addiction and not continue to feed the habit. This is all part of patient continuity of care. The county should look long and hard at the proposal from these law firms. They could be on the hook for a lot of money for legal fees. Paying legal fees is something that Columbia County is very familiar with. I think Mr. Murphy is aware of this possibility and will be a responsible leader in this matter. Richard D.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, ChairmanLETTERS TO THE EDITOR OUR OPINIONElijahs heroicsAn 11-year-old might learn lots of things from TVs Greys Anatomy, not all of them age-appropriate. No matter. What young Elijah Dockery got from the show was all that mattered, and it was enough to save a fellow students life. Elijah employed the Heimlich maneuver to dislodge a peppermint from the windpipe of another young boy who was going down fast. Good job, Elijah. It was more than just the accumulation of knowledge that led to these lifesaving heroics, though. There is knowing something, and then there is having the wherewithal to put it to practical use. By all accounts, when Elijah came upon the stricken boy he assessed the situation calmly then went to work fast. His decisive action saved another family from immeasurable heartbreak. We are all elevated by this young mans composure and presence of mind. If he represents anything near what the next generation brings to the table, we have far less to worry about than we thought.

By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comGreys Anatomy is a hospital drama about doctors and their daily lives, but the show gave a local sixth-grader the knowledge he needed to save another students life. As 11-year-old Elijah Dockery was walking to another wing of Richardson Sixth Grade Academy after school on March 21, he saw Donovan Dore on the ground, other students gathered around him. Elijah asked what was happening and was told Donovan was choking. I was a little bit confused at first because nobody was doing anything, Elijah said. A couple of kids went to get the teachers that were on the other side of the school. Elijah briefly thought about the situation and then went into action. Elijah said he told Donovan: This might hurt a little bit, but it will make you feel better, and thats when I did the Heimlich. I guess you could say I saved his life. Elijah called it a disturbing sight at first. He was turning purple not really purple, but turning pale, he said. He had saliva dripping from his mouth. Donovan was choking on a peppermint that had gotten lodged in his throat. Elijah said he probably learned how to perform the Heimlich maneuver from Greys Anatomy, a show he and his mother, Janna Dockery, often watched together. After Elijah performed the lifesaving Heimlich maneuver, teachers and administrators showed up and rushed Donovan to the school nurses office. Shortly after, first responders arrived and took Donovan to the hospital. Everybody came and he went off to the ER after that, Elijah said. Janna Dockery and other family members call him Eli for short, and she said she was proud of him. Eli is a special kid, she said. I wasnt shocked when I heard what he did. Hes always doing something amazing. This is just another example of how he is and who he is. Donovans parents also appreciate Elijahs efforts. They were very thankful that Elijah saved his life, Janna Dockery said of meeting Donovans parents during Tuesdays school board meeting. Scott Dockery, Elijahs father, said hes glad his son was there for the other student. He said kids learn things that are beneficial in a variety of fashions and it wasnt as important how Eli learned the maneuver, but that he was able to use it. Elijah recognized with a heroism certificate at Tuesday nights school board meeting for his actions. In addition, the district offices electric marquee displayed a message Wednesday saying: Thank You Elijah.

The rankings are listed: Pembroke Pines Charter (1), Fort Myers (2), Land O Lakes-Sunlake (3), Viera (4), St. Johns Bartram Trail (5), Chamberlain (6), Gainesville (8), Braden River (9) and Deltona (10). GAINESVILLE The Florida softball team won 9-0 in five innings before falling 5-0 to FIU in doubleheader action Wednesday at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium. Senior Aleshia Ocasio hurled her first complete-game no-hitter of the season in the initial game. Ocasio needed just 55 pitches to work through the Panthers lineup in the first game of the day. Florida exploded for seven runs in the fourth inning thanks to three singles, two doubles and a triple. FIU recovered and bounced back in the second game of the doubleheader. The Panthers scored three runs in the first inning off starting pitcher Katie Chronister, which included Kasandra Castles tworun home run. Jackie Schoff drove in the pair with a two RBI double down the left field line in the second off of reliever Natalie Lugo. COLLEGE FOOTBALL Callaway, Elam seek 2nd chances at Floridas pro dayBy MARK LONGAssociated PressGAINESVILLE Receiver Antonio Callaway and safety Matt Elam have spent the last few weeks working out together in South Florida. They chatted about their Florida careers. They pushed each other to get better. They counted down to this day. It was a second chance for both of them, really. Callaway and Elam were among the main attractions at Floridas annual pro day Wednesday, two former college stars looking to land on NFL rosters after a year away from football. Callaways path seems much more certain than Elams future. I was young. I was dumb. I was immature, said Callaway, his 6-weekold daughter nearby. Ive grown a lot, actually. Ive got a little girl to look after. I aint got no choice but to be the man. The 21-year-old Callaway was suspended all of last season while charged with felony credit card fraud. It was the latest misstep for a talented receiver who was once considered a lock to be a first-round draft pick. Callaway also was cited for marijuana possession in 2017 and was part of a Title IX investigation in 2016 that centered on an alleged sexual battery. He was later found not responsible for the alleged misconduct. He said every NFL team he spoke to at the scouting combine and since wanted to know about the same thing: His past. They already know Im a good athlete. Just know Im not a bad person, Callaway said. Somebodys just got to believe in me.PRO FOOTBALL PREP BASEBALLBRENT KUYKENDALL/Lake City ReporterColumbia outfielder Cole Frier scores a run last Friday night against Middleburg. The Tigers lost 5-2, falling into a two-way tie with Vanguard for third in the district standings. Nobody panicBy JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comTiebreakers are confusing, but the tiebreaker in District 3-7A takes it to a whole other level. Middleburg and Gainesville both finished 4-2 in the standings while Columbia and Vanguard both ended up 2-4. Head-to-head is the simplest tiebreaker but that doesnt work, because the Broncos and Hurricanes split their two games as did the Tigers and Knights. That leaves Middleburg and Gainesville flipping a coin for the top seed but heres the confusing part. If Middleburg wins the toss, Columbia is the 4-seed, but if Gainesville wins the toss then Columbia is the 3-seed, meaning the Tigers are facing the Broncos regardless of the coin flip in the district semifinals next month. Columbia coach Brian Thomas says it has to do with runs combined amongst the three teams excluding the Tigers. That isnt the best news for Columbia, which was swept by Middleburg last week. But ask Thomas and he says his guys arent afraid of anybody. In my heart of heart, I think were the best team in the district, Thomas said. We didnt show it during district play. We did a couple of times but I think were the best team top to bottom. Our pitching is deeper than anybodys and I think thats the key for us. If we can come through a little bit offensively, we can roll six, seven, eight, nine arms against anybody in a one-game scenario and then the next night will worry about that if it comes. But from that simple fact, if it goes late into a game, if it goes into extra innings and people CHS looks to right the ship before next months district tourament. Browns send QB Kessler to Jaguars for draft pickBy TOM WITHERSAssociated PressCLEVELAND No longer part of the Browns plans, Cody Kessler got passed to a new team. Cleveland traded its former starting quarterback to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday, the latest move for the Browns who have spent the offseason upgrading the teams most troublesome position following a 0-16 season. In exchange for Kessler, the Browns will receive a conditional 2019 seventh-round draft pick from the Jaguars, who were in the market to find a backup for starter Blake Bortles. The 24-year-old Kessler had been in a steady slide down Clevelands depth chart after starting eight games as a rookie in 2016. But after the team acquired Tyrod Taylor from Buffalo, dealt DeShone Kizer to Green Bay and with the Browns expected to take a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft, there was no room for Kessler. Last season, he entered training camp as the Browns starter but soon fell behind Kizer and Brock Osweiler and wound up being inactive for 10 games. He appeared in three games, completing 11 passes for 126 yards and was sacked six times. After the team passed on taking several other quarterbacks in the 2016 draft, Clevelands selection of Kessler in the third round drew criticism. Kessler wasnt expected to get on the field as a rookie, but after injuries sidelined Robert Griffin III and Josh McCown, he was thrust into action long before he was probably ready. Kessler showed toughness and some potential by passing for 1,380 yards and six TDs. But he was sacked 21 times and it didnt help that the Browns lacked playmakers to help him during a 1-15 season. Jacksonville represents a fresh start for the likable Kessler. We are excited about the opportunity to add Cody as depth to our quarterback position, said Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell. Despite being just 24 years old, Cody has already seen NFL game action and was very effective as a rookie in 2016, showing accuracy and efficiency in posting a quarterback rating of 90-plus. From our research and through getting to know Cody during the draft process, we know he is a smart, tough and competitive young man and we expect him to be a great addition to our quarterback and offensive meeting rooms.FILEFormer Florida receiver Antonio Callaway makes a catch against Kentucky on Sept. 10, 2016.

We could have two more students next year, but these two students are the first two that I know of to ever have that happen. PRO BASEBALL Tebow heads to Double-A despite slumpAssociated PressNEW YORK Tim Tebow has been promoted to Double-A after going 1 for 18 with 11 strikeouts in big league spring training for the New York Mets. The Mets said Wednesday that the outfielder has been assigned to start the season at Binghamton of the Eastern League. The Rumble Ponies open their season at home on April 5 against Portland. The 30-year-old Tebow, a former Heisman Trophy winner and NFL quarterback, split last season between a pair of Class A teams, Columbia, South Carolina, and St. Lucie. He hit .226 with eight homers and 52 RBIs in 126 games. Tebow, who is not on the Mets 40-man major league roster, was hampered during spring training by a left ankle sprain.PRO FOOTBALL New helmet rule likely to be part of replay for officiatingAssociated PressORLANDO The NFLs new rule outlawing a player from lowering his head to initially make any sort of hit with his helmet likely will be included in replay reviews for officials. That has not been decided yet, but Commissioner Roger Goodell and competition committee chairman Rich McKay made it clear Wednesday that video reviews probably will be part of the process. If were able to have replay confirm one of these fouls and also confirms a player be ejected, Goodell said as the league meetings concluded, I think there is more confidence among the coaches it will be called accurately. After noting the unanimous approval of the new rule among coaches, Goodell said on-field officials felt the same way. We think that is appropriate to do and it would be the first time we use replay for safety or in respect to any kind of foul, Goodell added. Late Tuesday, the owners rewrote the rule on using the helmet, making it a 15-yard penalty for any player to lower his head to initiate any hit with the helmet. McKay called it a significant change, noting that it was a technique too dangerous for the player doing it and the player being hit. ARIZONA CARDINALS: The Cardinals have gone across the Atlantic to sign defensive lineman Moubarak Djeri. The 6-foot-3, 275-pound Djeri played the last two seasons in the German Football League. Last year, he had 12 sacks, 40 tackles, 10 tackles for loss and two forced fumbles. DENVER BRONCOS: Sua Cravens already appears to be relishing in his change of scenery and his chance at a fresh start. In a video posted on his Twitter account the song A Whole New World from the Disney movie Aladdin played in the background before a smiling Cravens let out a loud Woo! Underneath was a caption that read: Broncos!!!! Here I come!! LOS ANGELES RAIDERS: David Humm, a former star quarterback at Nebraska who had a long career as a backup in the NFL, has died. He was 65. The Raiders announced Humms death on Wednesday, calling him a true Raider for his seven years with the team. Humm had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1988 and was in a wheelchair for more than 20 years. The Las Vegas Review Journal said he died Tuesday night at a hospital in Las Vegas. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS: Benjamin Watsons agent says the veteran tight end has agreed to return to the New Orleans Saints. Drew Rosenhaus tells The Associated Press in an email that Watson has agreed to a one-year contract with New Orleans, where he has posted some of his most impressive seasons of his 14-year career. SEATTLE SEHAWKS: Cornerback Justin Coleman is remaining with the Seattle Seahawks after signing his restricted free agent tender with the club. One day after the Seahawks released Trevone Boykin from its practice squad, the former TCU quarterback was arrested Wednesday at his North Texas home and charged with aggravated assault after his girlfriend accused him of beating her severely at his home. WFAA-TV in Dallas posted an interview with Boykins girlfriend in which she alleged he broke her jaw. Tebow
LAKECITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICSWEDNESDAY, MARCH 29, 2018 3B DEAR ABBY: Ron and I have been married 20 years and have two children. Recently, he called me a freeloader and described my parenting as half-assed. Its not the first time Ive heard it from him. I work part-time so I can have a flexible schedule and be home with our kids after school. Ron earns considerably more than I do, although I inherited money from my father that will provide security for our kids regardless of our incomes. I think Im a great mom. Our kids are healthy and well-adjusted. Although I dont need my husbands salary to live comfortably, I appreciate the good life his work affords us, and I do what I can to show it. I do, however, expect Ron to participate in raising our kids and contribute to the running of our household. I think its important, and I have work responsibilities and volunteer in our community. Ron says I do far less than most of my friends (who dont work), that he does a lot more around the house than the dads he knows and he resents it because he makes so much more money than I do. How much is fair to expect him to do to help with our kids and home life? How can I get him to see how much hurt his name-calling and disrespect causes? -NOT A FREELOADER DEAR NOT A FREELOADER: Every marriage is unique, which is why your husband should not compare himself to other dads and you to their wives. I find it odd that the husband of a working wife -and mother -would resort to name-calling and accuse you of freeloading. Of course Ron should participate in his childrens lives. Thats what being a father is all about. Marriage is supposed to be a partnership. Helping with housework sets a good example for the kids. If the two of you cant work out a compromise without name-calling, you should at least agree to have a licensed marriage counselor mediate the discussion. DEAR ABBY: I have a relative who has just been released from prison and is living with me and my family. He was incarcerated for more than 20 years for drugs. It breaks my heart to say that he has relapsed and could be heading back down that same road. My mother doesnt want a drug addict in her house. She told him to make other living arrangements, and he has agreed to stay with other relatives where there are more job opportunities. I feel guilty and my mother does, too. But she refuses to go through what she experienced during her childhood with this person. Is this the right thing to do? -RELAPSE IN CALIFORNIA DEAR RELAPSE: Yes! Your mother has made her feelings clear to this relative. Living with a drug addict is chaotic, and if she doesnt want to repeat the unpleasant and possibly traumatic experience, she shouldnt have to. By getting him out of the house she is taking care of herself, and for that she shouldnt feel guilty. However, because she does, it might help her -and you -to attend some Nar-Anon meetings. The group was founded in 1967 and its mission is to provide emotional support to families and friends of addicts. To locate a meeting nearby, visit nar-anon.org or call toll-free (800) 477-6291.

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): Take care of your responsibilities and you'll be rewarded for your effort. Dealing with any type of negotiation should be done with a practical, insightful manner if you want to come out on top. Thoughts should be followed by actions. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Business trips, educational pursuits or networking events will pay off. Listen carefully and gather information without disclosing your secret plans to advance. Knowledge is valuable; gather it wisely. Know what you want and be willing to make sacrifices to get your way. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Put more effort into improving your living space and handling your tax return and personal documents. It's up to you to take care of your responsibilities firsthand. Waiting for someone to step up and take over will leave you at a loss. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Protect your home and your important relationships from anyone trying to take advantage of your time, patience and understanding. Those closest to you deserve the best from you, so don't give your all to an outsider. Nurture what you already have. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): How you earn and handle your money will make a difference to your stress level. Great ideas need to be honed to fit practical application if you want to come out a winner. Strive for detail, precision and affordability. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Ask direct questions that will help you figure out where you stand. If someone is hesitant to share, consider why before you hand out too much personal information. Don't get angry when you should be taking care of business. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Take the initiative to get things done before someone complains. Once you have your responsibilities behind you, it will be easier to take a little time to do your own thing. A personal change will give you a mental boost. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Someone you've worked with in the past will offer interesting information. Network or get involved in a creative union that will encourage you to use your talents and expand your interests and outlets. A give-and-take situation looks promising. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Learn from past mistakes and be ready to start anew. A change to the way you handle money will encourage you to save more and stress less. Being realistic with regard to your expectations will alleviate disappointment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Get your money matters in order. Preparing your tax return or discussing your options with someone who has more experience will save you money. A creative approach to finances, negotiations and health will serve you well. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Listen carefully. What someone says may confuse you if the words used are misleading. Don't take anyone's word as gospel. If you want concrete answers, you should ask direct questions. Personal change is highlighted. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Use your flowery rhetoric to entice others to help out. You'll accomplish plenty if you work in unison with someone who is on the same page as you. A monetary gain is apparent if you use your imagination. Comedian Eric Idle is 75.

I like our scenario there. I really, really do. TIGERS FALL TO .500: The Tigers followed up their losses to Middleburg with another loss Tuesday night, falling to Fletcher 2-1 on the road and dropping to .500 for the first time this season. It was a heartbreaker for Columbia, which fell in the bottom of the seventh when starting pitcher Cal Gilliam overthrew first baseman Caleb Strickland to allow the runner from second to score for the game-winning run. But Thomas says Gilliam threw his best game of the season and his defense was just as good behind him. Both of those were encouraging signs for Thomas, considering errors have led to stress on his pitching staff in some of Columbias losses this season. Cal brought his A-game. It was by far the best hes thrown all year, Thomas said. He threw with tilt, velocity was probably 84-86 but the offspeed stuff he had command of (Tuesday) night like the night he closed against GHS here, but he had it for the entire game. I was pleased with the way we played. I really was. We were clean in what we did, we communicated well and we made some great plays some ESPN type plays that we had to make. He commanded us from a hitters standpoint and Cal commanded them. If you like pitching and good defense, you saw a bunch of it from both teams. Gilliam also had catcher Jamie Minchin back behind the plate. Minchin left Fridays game after suffering a face injury during an at-bat in the second inning. He didnt hit but is expected to be back in the lineup Friday night against Palatka Cal is hard with that curveball and slider and Jamie did a great job, Thomas said. He threw a kid out that had really good wheels and once Jamie threw him out in the first inning they didnt run again. You announce your presence a little bit there and they started to respect the presence a little bit there and they started to respect the fact that he can throw and he can. BUST THE SLUMP: Mired in a slump thats included six losses in their last eight games, the Tigers also seem to be showing signs of improvement at the plate according to Thomas. Despite registering just one run against Fletcher, Thomas has liked his players approaches as of late and believes the runs will come back around soon like earlier in the season when the Tiger scored 39 in their first six games. We were attacking baseballs in the zone earlier in the season, Thomas said. Kids are kids and for whatever reason they decided to start chasing some baseballs but now were back into the mentality of, its got to be something I know I can hit, not something hes telling me to hit. I know I have to hit it until the umpires telling me youve got two strikes and now were shorting up, short and powerful and expand your zone. From that aspect, I like what Im seeing because weve had some good quality days in the cage. Before Columbia travels to Palatka on Friday, the players will spend of a bulk of Thursdays practice in the batting cage again as they prepare to face some good arms on a three-game road trip. After facing the Panthers (8-8), the Tigers hit the road for contests against Sandalwood (8-5) on Monday and Hamilton County (8-6) on Thursday. Only four regular starters are currently hitting over .300 Clayton Steinruck (.340), Daveion Love (.327), Mikah Gustavson (.303) and Cole Frier (.300). Everybody else is currently at .250 or worse. Weve got a group of guys that are really good hitters and they know that theyre good hitters, Thomas said. Are they starting to read the stat line a little bit and see their averages coming down? Maybe, that might be the mindset a little bit, but they can hit. They can hit. They just got to know they can hit again. DONT PRESS IT: As far as their confidence goes, the Tigers still appear to be loose. With 10 games left, they know theres enough time to turn their season around before the district tournament begins, when they hope to be playing their best baseball as they chase their fourth straight district title. I told the kids after the game, look, youre going to right the ship. Theres no doubt about it. This was a good ball game. It was a clean game and youve got nothing to feel bad about, nothing to worry about, Thomas said. Weve got 10 games left. Theres a world of time. I tell them all the time, nobodys hitting the panic button unless you choose to yourself to hit the panic button. Were going to put the uniforms on, were going to show up and were going to PANIC Continued From 1BCallaway looked smooth and speedy during drills Wednesday. He stood on his 40-yard dash time (4.41 seconds) from the combine, but performed the three-cone drill, the 20-yard shuttle and the 60-yard shuttle. He also caught passes from quarterbacks Malik Zaire and Austin Appleby. His only issue was fielding punts: He dropped the first two he tried to catch. It was the same problem that plagued him at Florida in 2016. Still, one NFL team surely will take a chance on Callaway during next months NFL draft. It probably will be in the first three rounds, too. It remains to be seen if Elam will get another shot. An All-American at Florida, Elam was a first-round draft pick by Baltimore in 2013. He started 15 games as a rookie and 11 more in his second season before injuries and poor performances derailed his career. He spent the entire 2015 season on injured reserve and missed half of 2016. He also was suspended one game for violating the NFLs substance-abuse policy. But the bigger turning point in his career came in February 2017. The Ravens had already decided not to re-sign Elam when he arrested in Miami Beach and charged with possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver or sell and possession of a controlled substance, oxycodone. He was arrested again three months later, charged with larceny grand theft and battery after a dispute with his girlfriend over a cellphone in Palm Beach County. Charges in both cases were later dismissed. Elam said he had no offers to play in 2017. He was hoping to open some eyes Wednesday. Its been a year off for me, Elam said. Ive been trying to get myself right mentally and family to show these people that I deserve a second chance and the opportunity to do this game that I love, that Ive been doing all my life. Its tough. Just know what I came from and what I overcame, just having these opportunities to be out here again and do it again in front of coaches and my nephew, former teammates. Its great. I didnt think I was going to get this opportunity. The 26-year-old Elam fought back tears as he spoke five years after his previous pro day. He blamed his problems on childish mistakes, immature mistakes. Everybody deserves a second chance, he said. I feel like your first mistake dont determine what kind of person you really are. Your second chance and what you do with it determines who you really are. Ive been through a lot, overcame a lot and I feel like Im still young. I can help a club out in a lot of ways. Im a great teammate; I can be a great leader. I can be a great guy in the building. I feel like we do great things on the field. I feel like I can help a club out right now.

Penn State fans at the Garden which included football coach James Franklin chanted Garners name as he moved closer to the record. He hit six to reach 334 in his career and top Pete Lisickys 332. Garner, a 6-foot-2 senior guard, might put that record out of reach for a few more years with another big game in the NIT championship when the fourth-seeded Nittany Lions (25-13) play No. 2 seed Utah (23-11) for the title on Thursday night. Im going to play big in the Garden, Garner said. We were a little disappointed not to make the (NCAA) tournament, but we made another goal, Garner said. We saw we were in the NIT and our goal was to get to New York and win it. Thats what everyone wants to do. We put ourselves in a good position to do so. The Nittany Lions advanced to the NIT championship game for the third time in program history and first time since winning the 2009 title. Coach Pat Chambers, a former assistant coach under Jay Wright at Villanova, took over in 2011 and has struggled to find any kind of regular success. The Nittany Lions have never made the NCAA Tournament under Chambers and theyll have just their second winning record in seven seasons. But Penn States 25 wins are tied for second-highest in program history with the 1989-90 team (25-9). The Nittany Lions won a record 27 games in 200809. Theyve won 90 games over the past five seasons, the most by the program during a five-year span since starting Big Ten play in 1992-93. Penn State knocked off NIT top-seed Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana, to advance in the tournament. Garner is a senior and star sophomore point guard Tony Carr, who scored 21 points in the semifinal, could leave for the NBA. Its up to Utah to shut em down. The Utes also feel the urgency. David Collette, Justin Bibbins and Tyler Rawson, three seniors, all made pivotal plays down the stretch in a 69-64 win over Western Kentucky in the semifinal. Collette all but guaranteed the Utes would win the NIT before the team left Salt Lake City. Were coming home with a trophy, he said.
