By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThe Heddon wooden frog. Creek Chub. The Bullhead. All are some of the most famous antique fishing lures ever made. Most highly prized antique fishing lures were manufactured in the late 1800s and early 1900s. In the early 1920s, in Frostproof, an Irish immigrant began carving the Flood Shinner. It is believed that the earliest Southern Lure was a copy of Floods lure. Apparently around 1929, a fishing lure company was based in Lake City The Southern Lure Company. Frank Carter, a fishing lure researcher, collector and author, has a few of the lures that were manufactured here, but hes never been able to get any research completed about the Southern Lure Company. Carter has been collecting antique fishing lures for more than 20 years and has thousands of them. His travels around the state to collect lures have also made him a de facto fishing lure historian. His clientele is often composed of people in their late 80s to early 90s or people who found old fishing lures in tackle boxes at estate sales. The crafty antique lure collector is in Lake City trying to dig up records about the Southern Lure Company. He wants to know when the Southern Lure Company was founded, who started it, who worked there and when and where it was in business. He also wants to find out about the companys relationship, if it exists, to the Southern Bait Company. Carter, a retired Florida Department of Law Enforcement Agent, has been to Lake City before: he worked on the case of Kimberly Ann Leach, Ted Bundys last victim. The first security director for the Florida Lottery, Carter is accustomed to verifying facts and following where the clues lead. Carter is working on volume seven of a series of books, Florida Lure Makers and Their Lures that he and other collectors in the state have contributed to over the past few years.

Some have international experience, such as working with a municipal government in Africa. Others have military experience, such as gathering intelligence in the Global War on Terror or serving as a strategic commander for NORAD. But several of the resumes list work histories much closer to home. Three of the 54 applicants are current or former city officials. They are David Kraus, the countys safety director and grant writer, who is also in the running for the Lake Shore Hospital Authority executive director position; Nick Harwell, the citys former airport manager now working as an economic development official in Marianna; and Jesse Quillen, the previous Columbia County economic development director now working in the same capacity for Clarke County, Alabama. Klaus is among six applicants who live in Lake City. The others are Chiquita Dingle, director for a Gainesville-based business; Phillip Mobley, who is involved in faith-based organizations in Lake City and Jacksonville; Natalie Park, a former controller for both North Florida Collector is on the trail of a former local lure maker.

John Michael Rohe, 54, was arrested over the weekend on two drug related charges, and found to be in possession of $80 of meth he later admitted purchasing, the report said. The arresting deputy was a self-described 32-plus year law enforcement officer, a member of the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force with a history as a drug investigations supervisor and was trained in the removal and disposal of methamphetamine laboratories.

By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comLake City police and fire personnel responded to a man in apparent medical distress on the corner SW Main and SW Nassau streets Tuesday evening. A 20-something white male was lying flat under a palm tree at the entrance of Burger King around 6 p.m. Store workers said he had been helped to the curbside across Main Street by another man. Officer Jason Watts was among the first to reach him. I said, Im officer Watts from the Lake City Police Department. Can tell me whats goin on, said Watts. He said man I bought some marijuana from this guy and I smoked it and I found out it was K2. He was treated by paramedics and appeared responsive and lastly placed on a stretcher and put in an ambulance. Watts said K2 had a presence in Lake City. A lot of patients that are just laying on the side of the road and theyre just passed out, normally its that K2 stuff from my experiences, Watts said. It speeds up their heart really, really fast and it just makes them feel like theyre freaking out. It just makes them really anxious. 2A WEDNESD AY, APRIL 11, 2018 DA ILY BRIEFING LAKE CITY REPORTER 7a 1p 7p 1a 6a LAKE CITY ALMANAC SUN MOON UV INDEX EXTREME: 10 minutes to burn T odays ultra-violet radiation risk for the ar ea on a scale fr om 0 to 10+.

Carter has lure boxes and tackle that indicate the lures were manufactured in Lake City, but hes trying to verify the information. Hes trying to determine whether the lures were made by jobbers, people that got the lures from bigger companies and copied and sold them locally, or whether it was a company here that actually created the lures. Carter is asking that anyone with information about the Southern Lure Company contact him at (850) 574-9718 or e-mail him at Larry Lee, a Columbia County resident who is also an antique fishing lure collector, is helping Carter as the two research information for the latest book. Lee is also a member of the Florida Antique Tackle Club, where he met Carter years ago as they both attended a meeting in Orlando. My interest is in Florida lures, but its lures my family would fish with, Lee said. I have some of those and some that I go back and try to go back buy and collect some of the old ones that we used to fish with. Carters preliminary findings have him hot on the trail of the possible location. The search will take Carter through genealogy, city and building records, as well as a thorough search of old editions of the Lake City Reporter from the 1930s-1950s. Carter said he was first introduced to the Southern Lure Company mystery more than 20 years ago. Ive been mostly focused on Southern Lures that last two years, he said. The one thing Carter knows is that the lures caught fish and back in the day, that made a difference. Lee was one of nine kids and when his daddy fished, it made a difference whether they had meat for dinner that night. Early fishing lures in Florida, the people who fished with them, if they didnt catch fish, the family didnt eat meat that night, Carter said. They may not eat anything that night. It was subsistence and survival fishing... Almost every lure maker that I wrote about or researched, they knew that if the lure didnt catch fish, the fishermen wasnt coming back, he continued. Todays fishing lures, since its mostly sports fishing, Im fully convinced the lures are designed more to catch fishermen, rather than catch the fish.

CALL US! 386-755-2268 Accepting New PatientsWhen I think of acrylic, my mind goes to nail salons where they apply hard acrylic to your fingernails it doesnt go to coffee or potato chips! But this compound is, in fact, almost always present in coffee and potato chips, as well as many other foods such as cereal, French fries, peanut butter even prune juice. Acrylamide levels are higher in things that are fried like French fries. Just like frying, toasting can produce acrylamide thats why dark toast is worse for you than light toast, as are well-down has browns, versus lightly browned ones basically the darker (more cooked) areas on your food tend to have more acrylamide. Coffee is high in acrylamide and thats why coffee shops are facing scrutiny now. Id like a Vanilla Latte, double-shot, extra whipped cream, no acrylamide. Starbucks and other bigname cafes are under fire. You see, acrylamide is a compound known to the FDA as a possible carcinogen. To be fair, the carcinogenic potential of dietary-related acrylamide from foods and beverages is actually unknown. Natural coffee beans dont have acrylamide, it happens during the refinement process. When coffee growers roast their coffee beans, the acrylamide content goes up to a certain degree. Then coffee houses prepare beverages for us (the consumer) and we drink it. Does that mean were drinking acrylamide? In recent breaking news, Superior Court Judge Elihu M. Berle has just ruled that coffee companies like Starbucks, Peets and others will have to carry the cancer warning label in the state of California. I am confident this cancer-causing acrylamide problem wont even impact their salesnot even a dollar! Coffee lovers arent going to run because we, as a nation, are fairly desensitized to toxins by now. Nobody cares if meat contains 28 different ingredients, aside from meat. Nobody cares if blueberry cereal doesnt have real blueberries in it, but rather purple goo. Nobody cares if French fries are fried in disgusting oil. These are the foods that are the highest in acrylamide, so youll want to avoid or minimize these: French fries and potato chips Grains like pasta Breakfast cereal Darkly toasted bread or bagels Certain cookies Lightly roasted coffee beans Peanut, almond or sunflower butter Thats just the main foods, there are others which I can share in my extended version of this article. Ive written a much more comprehensive article about this, including more about why the foods above are high in acrylamide and what you can substitute. Ive also offered a list of foods and supplements that offset the damage done by acrylamide. To get all of this, its simple. Just sign up for my free newsletter at and Ill email it to you on Tuesday. Coffee shops to display cancer warningDEAR PHARMACIST Suzy Suzy Cohen is a pharmacist who got her start in Gainesville. From UF HealthGAINESVILLE Several years ago, University of Florida aquatic animal vet erinarian Michael Walsh, D.V.M., noticed a concerning pattern among some stranded dolphins after they had been rescued. Both of the dolphins returned to the beach again once they had been released back into the wild. I worked with two animals, one directly, that showed numerous behavioral problems while in rehab, said Walsh, a clinical associate professor of aquatic animal health at the UF College of Veterinary Medicine. We werent able to test the first dolphins hearing, but the second animal was tested at Mote Marine Laboratory and found to be totally deaf. This suggested that the problem of adapting to new environments might be hearing-related and might be more common than we had initially thought, he said. When Megan Strobel, D.V.M., then a first-year veterinary medical student at UF, went to Walsh, her faculty mentor, in 2013 to discuss a possible research project, he suggested that she might compare hearing capacity and behavior changes in wild and facility-housed dolphins. The result of their collaboration, which also involved numerous other individuals and organizations, was a study that appeared in December in the Journal of Zoo and Wildlife Medicine. The study found that stranded animals with hearing deficits showed markedly different behaviors than their counterparts with normal hearing and concluded that hearing assessments should be routinely administered as part of regular health examinations in all animals under human care. Hearing is the primary sense of odontocete cetaceans, also known as toothed whales, which include dolphins, porpoises and all other whales possessing teeth. Currently, little empirical information on the relationship between odontocetes and hearing loss reaches those taking care of the animals, the researchers said. Hearing loss in odontocetes can be caused by loud noises, parasites, trauma and medical issues such as infection, just as it can in humans. But the loss of sonar capability, which relies on hearing, is especially difficult and traumatic for the wild individual, Strobel said. How often when you go to the doctor do you have your hearing tested? You have to do that separately, Walsh said. If we recognize that all animals will lose hearing over time, then putting technology such as the auditory evoked potential test we used into their health exams as they get older will help everyone understand how their sensory systems are doing. For animals that have grown up in facilities, the environment is known and their daily lives are somewhat predictable, Walsh said. But if you change the environment on a deaf animal, its similar to changing the environment on a human individual, he said. They have to give more effort to understanding the new environment and what it means. The researchers felt it was important to educate caretakers about challenges the animals face in situations where hearing deficits in older animals or deafness may result in behavior that is misunderstood. How hearing loss affects stranded animals Clugston Concussions: Fast action means quicker recoveryFrom UF HealthGAINESVILLE In the warrior ethos that permeates sports, athletes sometimes shake off injuries and stay in the game. Its considered a measure of toughness. It also is the worst step a concussed athlete can take, according to UF Health researchers who have found that immediately getting medical care reduces concussion symptoms and ultimately gets the player back in action sooner. An analysis of 506 sports-related concussions among college athletes in 18 sports found that those who ceased their activities once they were injured missed about three fewer days of competition than those who delayed reporting their injuries. Prompt reporting also reduced concussion symptoms by two days and decreased the likelihood of missing more than two weeks of sport participation by 39 percent. The findings were published online March 20 in The American Journal of Sports Medicine. While current guidelines call for athletes who suspect they have a concussion to immediately stop playing and get an evaluation, this and other studies have shown that as many as 60 percent of them dont disclose their injury or stop playing right away, for a multitude of reasons. The findings make clear that athletes who tough it out are actually delaying their recoveries, said James R. Clugston, M.D., a UF associate professor of medicine and UF Athletic Association team physician. Weve always had concerns about athletes hiding concussion symptoms. This gives athletes greater incentive to be more frank in letting the sports medicine staff know that there may be something wrong. The sooner you tell us about concussion symptoms, the sooner you get back to your sport, he said. To establish their findings, Clugston and his collaborators analyzed concussion data from August 2014 to September 2016 among athletes at 25 universities and military service academies involved in the National Collegiate Athletic Association and the Department of Defenses Concussion Assessment, Research and Education, or CARE, Consortium. After controlling for other factors in a statistical model, they found that lost competition time and the duration of concussion symptoms were directly related to when athletes stopped their activity. Its important to recognize and report concussion-related symptoms immediately. The faster you allow a medical team to make a diagnosis, the better your chances for a shorter recovery, said Breton M. Asken, a doctoral student and lead author of the paper. The findings also apply to more than just football: Concussion-related data from college athletes in sports such as swimming, softball, tennis and field hockey were part of the study. Clugston said the findings also suggest it is important to have someone available during sport activities to whom athletes can report potential concussion issues. Coaches are getting better at recognizing concussion symptoms, but its not fair to put it all on them. Athletes need someone like a certified athletic trainer to do an evaluation and decide whether or not they should be removed from competition, Asken said.LAUREN HARRIS/Dolphin Research Center, Grassy KeyMembers of the Dolphin Research Center staff gently hold a 26-year-old male dolphin named A.J. while his hearing test is conducted with assistance from Dr. Megan Strobel, front right.


This column may cost me my barber, but thats OK. Its a story that needs to be told. Louise Miss Wezzie Huelskamp shuts me down hard every time I suggest a nice feature about all her charitable work for veterans and others, including cancer patients. She wants to store her treasure in heaven, not on earth (see Matthew 6:19-20). I tell her not to hide her light under a bushel (Matthew 5:1516), leaving us at impasse. I chose to speak of her in this space, as her story cannot go untold. There arent many people like Wezzie. She got her name 30 or so years ago when a young boy at a school where she volunteered couldnt pronounce Miss Louise. He called her Wezzie (though he really meant Weezie) and it stuck, even the spelling. Shes been a hairstylist all her adult life and still does it a few days a week, though she doesnt need the money. Besides, people come to Wezzie for a whole lot more than a haircut. In her shop any given day youll find only her closest friends even if they didnt know who she was when they walked in. Things become personal very early on, if thats how they want it. One customer whose hair is just growing back after chemo will ask for advice in that regard and Wezzie kindly obliges. She knows about cancer herself in the most personal way possible. Its not unusual to see somebody grab a broom and start sweeping up hair before Wezzie has a chance to. She doesnt expect it but she doesnt object. These are her friends, and they do it because they want to. Wezzie is beloved beyond measure in the veterans community. Its not widely known, but she cuts veterans hair for free every week at the VA. Plus hundreds turned out for the Veterans Day event she sponsored last November at the fairgrounds, Honoring Those Who Served. She got help from the business community but paid a good portion of the tab out of her own pocket, which she didnt mind at all. Its not all sweetness and light. Wezzie is unrelenting in making known her views on issues of real importance to city and county taxpayers, especially when local officials have gone astray. One such individual plopped himself down in her chair for a haircut one day even though he didnt appear to need one. Wezzie saw right through him and ordered him out of her shop. All he really wanted was to stir up trouble, she said. Wezzie is headstrong, and there exist folks who dont think highly of her. But she brings people together more than drives them apart. She puts people together, you might say, and in more ways than one. She is a great social matchmaker, always looking to help folks make new friends. When you visit her shop you always meet somebody new and interesting. She puts folks together in a different way as well. I think her aim is to make them whole and give them peace, whatever their burden. I think sometimes she succeeds. She is loud, funny and a friend to all who accept her as she is. Lake City is lucky to have Wezzie.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINIONThe price we payLife in the Sunshine State is a joy, but with the sun come the clouds. And, sometimes, tragedy. Following the death Saturday of a young Branford woman, there is little to do but mourn. Yes, there are precautions you can and should take to avoid a lightning strike, but short of staying indoors year-round, you are going to find yourself at risk at some point with little you can do about it. The facts of this case still arent clear but it seems that may have been the case here. Please keep the family of Kourtney Lambert in your prayers. And ignore the half-informed sorts who wish to use their heartbreak as an opportunity to lecture or preach.

Its Wezzie, with two zs If John Bolton frightens the nations enemies half as much as he frightens Chicken Little and all the Democrats at home, all the strife, evil and deceit in the world will soon be history. Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un will lie down with the lion and not have to worry about being the midnight snack. Mr. Boltons critics call him blunt, impolite and a reactive saber-rattler, and its true that he does not speak in the dulcet tones and soft words Washington expects from the State Department types who think their job is to see how far weakness can go, to fritter away as many of the nations advantages in the name of co-operation, penitence and national contrition. Hes a good match for Donald Trump. Neither man cultivates a flaccid front, either for himself or for the nation. Mr. Bolton once had the bad manners to write a book called Surrender is Not an Option. The very title was an affront to every nation that aspires to be an enemy of the United States. Bluster is an effective weapon in the hands of someone who knows how to use a weapon. Mr. Bolton, like the president, has never been interested in being polite to the imams in Tehran or to Rocket Man in Pyongyang. He has never been a fan of nation-building, particularly when it means dismantling the nation and everything about it, from its history, culture, even its religion. Hes not a fan because it cant be done. He told an interviewer in London more than a decade ago, in the wake of the war in Iraq, that he didnt think democracy in Iraq, which is the best if not always the most efficient system of government, should be considered a relevant American interest. I dont think theres an American interest in what kind of Iraq emerges from the present circumstance. I think the American interest is in making sure that no part of Iraq be used by terrorists against us. The presidents new national-security adviser served under Presidents Bush father and son, and his blunt style clashed with George W.s idea of what the world could be, and Mr. Boltons idea of what the world already is. Mr. Bolton thought George W. was insufficiently hawkish in dealing with North Korea. George W.s idea, like that of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, was to smother Rocket Mans father and the ghost of his grandfather under a mush of food and technology that would inspire gratitude and a rush of good feeling. Reuel Marc Gerecht, a neo-conservative scholar at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies and a onetime colleague of Mr. Bolton at the American Enterprise Institute, tells Tom Rogan of the Washington Examiner that Mr. Bolton is not really interested in democracy, but in the binding of American sovereignty and security. Nothing is more important to the survival of the worlds greatest and important democracy. He describes the national-security adviser as tenacious, and fond of ruffling feathers. For that he has a singular talent. He seems particularly eager to work with Britain. Anglo-Saxons together, as the French grumble, and all that. He told a Fox News interviewer, who had suggested that the United States should distance itself from the aggressive British response to the Russian poisoning of a former spy and his daughter as they sat peaceably on a park bench, that no, Britain should get even tougher. Prime Minister Theresa May should expel not only the Russian ambassador but the entire diplomatic staff in London, shutter the embassy and close all the Russian consular offices in Britain. Thats pretty tough, though suggesting something and actually doing it are two different things. But bluster has its uses. Donald Trumps bluster against Rocket Man and the North Korean government, conducted over a period of weeks when the Democrats and the pundits exhausted the capitals inventory of smelling salts, was followed by Pyongyangs asking for tickets to the Olympics in South Korea and then for a meeting with President Trump. That meeting has now been pushed off to June, and this gives the president and his new national-security adviser time to tune the piano. Neither man knows how to lead from behind. It should be interesting.Fear and loathing of John Bolton TODAY IN HISTORY She wants to store her treasure in heaven, not on earth (see Matthew 6:19-20). I tell her not to hide her light under a bushel (Matthew 5:15-16), leaving us at impasse. Washington Times

The defendant claimed the pants were not his and he didnt not know it [meth] was there. His actions made me believe otherwise, the deputy stated as probable cause. The exchange occurred just after 11 a.m. Saturday when he spotted a blue Chevrolet HHR parked outside a motel off U.S. Highway 441 south, and recognized it from previous incidents, the report said. The vehicle Rohe and two women were in was reportedly known by the deputy to belong to a methamphetamine suspect. The report said he approached the drivers side of the vehicle and talked with women, noting Rohe was in the back seat. He asked permission to search Rohe, and if he had weapons or drugs on him, the report said. Rohe was compliant, but according to the deputy he was too compliant when it came to insisting he hand the deputy his wallet, versus the deputy retrieve it. When I arrived at his left rear jeans pocket, he advised he would get it out. Referring to a wallet in that pocket. He removed it and I conducted a brief search of it. I was suspicious of this offer and felt he did not want me to find something in that pocket. I felt he was attempting to negate the need for me to enter that pocket, his statement said. Its where he reportedly found the substance that landed Rohe in Columbia County Sheriffs Office on $6,000 bond. He attempted to go into that pocket with his hand. I grasped his hand to prevent evidence tampering. I looked into the pocket and confirmed my belief, the report stated. In the vehicle CCSO also reported finding a glass meth pipe, and one of the women was found in possession of a needle with a broken plunger head.

A Jacksonville Sheriffs Office report says the 41-year-old McCree was arrested Saturday evening on charges of simple assault and aggravated battery. The report says the ex-wife had filed for a protection order against McCree and went to a police substation Saturday to report past domestic violence incidents. The ex-wife told police McCree was waiting for her when she left the substation. She says she and her mother tried to drive away, but McCree followed and rammed her vehicle several times. They were able to escape by running several red lights. McCree was released on bail Sunday. Jail records didnt list an attorney. McCree and his ex-wife divorced in 2015. They have three children together.

Trump hosted Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban and his players at the White House on Tuesday to honor their fifth national title in nine years. The president attended the championship game in Atlanta, in which Alabama staged a second-half comeback to defeat Georgia 26-23 in overtime. Trump said backup quarterback Tua Tagovailoas winning touchdown pass in overtime to fellow freshman DeVonta Smith after a sack will go down as one of the most exciting finishes in college football history of any sport. Trump watched the Jan. 8 game from a private box overlooking the Alabama sideline. The president left the stadium during halftime as Georgia led Alabama 13-0. Trump said Alabamas triumph was one of the greatest victories ever. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a former Alabama senator, was among those on the South Lawn for the team visit. Trump praised Sabans Process for success and said the coach could make a lot of money if he were able to sell the formula. In the national championship game, you stuck to The Process, even when it was looking pretty tough, the president said. I was watching. I said, Coach, not looking too good.

State mentioned in NCAA caseNEW YORK (AP) Kansas and North Carolina State are the latest schools to be swept up in a bribery scandal involving college basketball. A rewritten federal indictment released Tuesday in New York alleges that an Adidas officials paid parents of athletes willing to commit to the schools. Prosecutors say an Adidas representative agreed to pay $90,000 to the family of a Kansas recruit and $40,000 to a recruit at North Carolina State. Prosecutors say money helped secure the players commitments to play college basketball at the schools and ensured the North Carolina State recruit signed an Adidas sponsorship deal when he entered the NBA. He entered the draft last June. In the Kansas case, the student-athlete made a surprise announcement last August to attend the school.Miamis Larranaga agrees to 2-year extensionCORAL GABLES (AP) Miami Hurricanes coach Jim Larranaga has agreed to a two-year contract extension through the 2023-24 season.

(AP) Monster Energy will remain the title sponsor of NASCARs top Cup Series through 2019 in an extension announced Tuesday. Monster is not expected to be back after next year as NASCAR will re-evaluate how it sells its sponsorship. The Monster contract with NASCAR is estimated to be worth $20 million annually. The energy drink company signed a two-year deal in late 2016.

PG NBA PLAYOFFS: SeedingSpurs, Pelicans, Thunder all in; 1 spot left in West raceBy TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressA look at the NBA playoff picture, with two days remaining in the regular season and now only one berth left to be decided:THE SCENARIOSThe NBA says there are 56 possible seeding scenarios still in play going into the final two days of the regular season. All but one of the 16 playoff spots have been clinched, with the Minnesota-Denver game on Wednesday deciding the final berth in the postseason. But going into Tuesday, the next-to-last day of the regular season, only five of the 16 seeds have been wrapped up. The Portland-Utah winner on Wednesday will finish No. 3 in the Western Conference, but if the Jazz lose they could fall as far as No. 7 depending on the outcome of other games. San Antonio, Oklahoma City and New Orleans could all be anywhere from fourth through eighth in the West. Minnesota would finish anywhere from fifth through eighth if it tops Denver, and the Nuggets if they beat the Timberwolves will be fifth, sixth or seventh. Houston is No. 1 in the West, followed by Golden State at No. 2. The clinched East seeds are No. 1 Toronto, No. 2 Boston and No. 5 Indiana. Philadelphia and Cleveland will be No. 3 and No. 4 in the East, in some order. Going into Tuesday, Milwaukee, Miami and Washington all could finish either sixth, seventh or eighth in the East.WEST UPDATEThe playoffs start Wednesday. Officially, thats not true. But the Denver at Minnesota game on Wednesday night may as well be considered a playin game: Winner moves on, loser goes home. Monday started with four spots available out West, and ended with only one still unclaimed. New Orleans, San Antonio and Oklahoma City all won to clinch their playoff berths the Spurs doing so for the 21st consecutive year, tying Portland for the second-longest run in NBA history and moving one shy of tying Philadelphias league record (which started when the 76ers were the Syracuse Nationals). The funny part about Mondays triple-clinchings is that nothing changed in the standings. The order of the top eight remains the same, going into the next-to-last day of the regular season. It wont stay that way. Get ready for craziness. Oklahoma City can remain No. 7 in the West, but only if it loses to Memphis (and a lot of other things happen). All we really know is this: Wednesday night will be great fun.EAST UPDATECleveland won the Central Division and locked Indiana into the No. 5 seed with a win at New York. Milwaukee is now up to No. 6 in the East, flip-flopping spots with now-No. 7 Miami. The Bucks beat Orlando, while the Heat could get nothing going and got routed in the fourth quarter on the way to losing to the Thunder. The Bucks wrap up No. 6 with a win at Philadelphia on Wednesday night. But the 76ers will go into the final day with a chance at the No. 3 spot, regardless of whether they win in Atlanta on Tuesday.TUESDAYS GAMES Charlotte at Indiana: No playoff impact, Pacers will be the No. 5 seed. Philadelphia at Atlanta: Philadelphia can be No. 3 seed by winning last two, and stretching its winning streak to 16. Boston at Washington: A potential first-round matchup if Wizards finish seventh. Washington can also be No. 6 or No. 8. Golden State at Utah: Jazz still could get to the No. 3 seed. Warriors could be first NBA team with 30 road wins in three straight seasons. Phoenix at Dallas: No playoff impact, Suns have clinched NBAs worst record. Houston at L.A. Lakers: No playoff impact, Lakers aiming for winning home record.CURRENT BRACKETFirst-round matchups if the season ended Monday ... East: 1-Toronto vs. 8-Washington, 2-Boston vs. 7-Miami, 3-Philadelphia vs. 6-Milwaukee, 4-Cleveland vs. 5-Indiana. West: 1-Houston vs. 8-Minnesota, 2-Golden State vs. 7-Oklahoma City, 3-Portland vs. 6-San Antonio, 4-Utah vs. 5-New Orleans.NOTE OF THE DAYNeither Denver nor Minnesota has ever missed the playoffs in a 46-win season. One will this year.QUOTE OF THE DAYWe know we can beat anybody when were playing our best.

LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS WEDNESDAY, APRIL 11, 2018 3B DEAR ABBY: My sons girlfriend confided to me that my son, age 35, is cross-dressing. I knew his life was in flux and that his appearance had changed, but it stunned me. He hasnt mentioned anything, and she said he would be very upset if I knew. When I saw him the same day, I made sure to hug him and tell him I love him. Please tell me what to do or say. -WHAT TO SAY IN TEXAS DEAR WHAT: Do nothing, say nothing. This isnt your business, and the girlfriend was wrong to betray your sons confidence. It may reassure you to know that cross-dressing has been around for centuries and has been present in many cultures. Your son isnt the only cross-dresser in the United States or even the state of Texas. Most male cross-dressers are heterosexual and do it because it feels good to them. It is no reflection on their morals, their sexual orientation or gender identity. DEAR ABBY: I have a 6-year-old son, Tyler, from a previous relationship. I have been dating a man Ill call Chad for almost four years. My problem is, Chad cant seem to have any kind of relationship or interaction with Tyler. Chad isnt abusive, but he constantly ignores my boy and gives him no attention. I thought after all this time Chad would be used to my son, but it hasnt happened. Sometimes he seems annoyed when Tyler is in the same room. Im not sure if I should end the relationship or stick around. Any advice would be helpful. -LOSING HOPE DEAR LOSING HOPE: Your first responsibility is to your son. The way Chad treats Tyler will eventually damage the boys self-esteem if it hasnt already. Children are perceptive. When they are ignored, they know something is wrong and think its their fault -that theres something wrong with them and that they dont measure up. My advice is to tell Chad the romance is over and why. Frankly, you should have done it years ago. DEAR ABBY: I admit Im a loud snorer. However, I was on a plane recently, flying home after an exhausting trip. I fell asleep and my seatmate repeatedly woke me to complain about my snoring. Shouldnt the woman have let me sleep in peace if she saw that I was genuinely tired? What made her needs greater than mine? -TRYING TO SLEEP DEAR TRYING TO SLEEP: Not knowing the woman, its hard to say. Perhaps your seatmate felt entitled to a quiet flight and your snoring was so disruptive that, even with earphones, she could concentrate on nothing else. I suppose she could have asked the flight attendant to change her seat, but if the flight was fully booked she probably woke you because she wasnt inclined to suffer from coast to coast. P.S. I would be remiss in my responsibility as an advice columnist if I didnt urge you to discuss your snoring with your doctor. It could be a symptom of sleep apnea, a condition that is very serious. Abigail Van Mom rattled after learning about sons cross-dressing 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): Keep life simple. Now is not the time to overreact, especially when dealing with a partner or someone you are working alongside. Limit how much you let others know about you and your personal life to avoid interference. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You can make personal changes, but do so secretively. Avoiding interference will make it easier to accomplish what you set out to do. An opportunity to reconnect with someone from your past will prove to be enlightening. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Youll be tempted to make a change, but do so only if you are physically up for the challenge. Taking care of your health as well as your emotional state of mind will make a difference to how much you can achieve. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Dont let temptation get to you. If someone is unpredictable, keep your distance, or you may end up being the one who has to clean up an emotional mess. Know your strengths and your weaknesses before taking a risk. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A financial change looks promising. Go over pertinent personal papers and adjust documents, contracts or your tax return to ensure you get what you deserve. A career change or promotion will boost your income and your standard of living. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Gravitate toward people you find interesting and youll be able to expand your mind. Your perspective regarding how you live or what you pursue in the future will change, offering unique options that will inspire you to try something new. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Strive to be insightful. Dont take anything or anyone for granted or allow others to take advantage of you. Set ground rules and be willing to negotiate and compromise when necessary. Focus on better health and less stress. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Offer something unique to someone special. A better understanding of the direction you plan to take in life will help you build a better relationship with someone who matters to you. Be willing to step up and make a vow. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Dont make decisions based on emotions. You cant count on outsiders to give you good advice. If someone tries to meddle in your affairs, walk away. Take your time, use your intelligence and make a move only when you are ready. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your emotions will fluctuate if you take part in an event that will bring you in contact with people from your past. Proceed with caution and refrain from letting temptation lead to an impulsive act that you will live to regret. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Youll find interesting opportunities, but before you take a leap of faith, think about the expense and whats entailed to reach your goal. Taking baby steps will help you make progress and avoid unnecessary mishaps. Dont overreact or overdo. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Dont let anxiety lead to making an impulsive move without giving enough credence to the consequences. Trying to help someone may be a kind gesture, but before you jeopardize your reputation, find out exactly what it will take on your part. April 11: Actor Joel Grey is 84. Actress Louise Lasser is 77.

So step aside Chicago, which missed the playoffs for the first time in nine years, and say bye to the Blues, whose six-year playoff run is over. The changing of the Wests guard begins at the top, where Nashville clinched its first Central Division title by running away with the leagues best record. And then theres Vegas, which broke every measureable NHL expansion record for success by going 51-24-7 to win the Pacific Division. Add in the talent-laden Winnipeg Jets, making their franchises third playoff appearance, and youthfilled Colorado Avalanche, who clinched their second berth in eight years, and it results in three of four first-time postseason matchups: Nashville versus Colorado, Vegas versus Los Angeles and Winnipeg facing Minnesota. The fourth matchup has Anaheim facing San Jose for only the second time after the Ducks eliminated the Sharks in six games during a 2009 first-round series. Of the eight teams, only three have won the Stanley Cup (Colorado, Anaheim and Los Angeles), while two have never won a playoff game (Vegas and Winnipeg, formerly Atlanta). The weight of expectations falls mostly on the Predators who wont be underestimated a year after the eighth-seeded teams surge to the Final ended in a six-game loss to Pittsburgh. It was a run Nashville began against Chicago in becoming the first team to sweep a No. 1 seed in the opening round since the current playoff format was set in 1994. I think our guys are well aware of what went on last year, Predators coach Peter Laviolette said. For me, this group is looking down the tunnel at something, and all that other stuff is noise. Thats not to say Laviolette didnt play the everyones picking Chicago card as motivation a year ago. I might have used it, he said with a wink. The Avalanche know their history, with forward Gabriel Landeskog listing how several No. 8 seeds have made deep playoff runs, including the 2012 Cup champion Kings. Anything can happen in the playoffs. Thats kind of the mindset weve had, Landeskog said of the Avalanche who enjoyed a 47-point turnaround after finishing last a year ago. This is a big accomplishment to make after such a tough season. Were not done.PREDATORS vs AVALANCHENashville finished seventh in the league with 261 goals without any player scoring 30. The Predators balanced attack is fueled by a group of speedy, playmaking defensemen who combined for a leaguebest 206 points (56 goals, 150 assists). Pekka Rinne went 42-13-4 to finish third in victories, and his 2.31 goals-against average was third among goalies playing 40 or more games. Though Nashville has won 10 straight against Colorado, beware of the Presidents Trophy curse. Of the 31 teams to finish first since 1986 when the trophy was established, only eight have won the Cup, the last being Chicago in 2013. Nathan MacKinnon entered the MVP discussion by leading Colorado with 97 points, including a league-leading 12 game-winning goals. Colorado tied with Arizona with the youngest roster at 25.8 years old.GOLDEN KNIGHTS vs KINGSA Golden Knights team put together with other teams discards spent the season using a why not us? mantra in setting expansion-team records for most wins (51), home wins (29), road wins (22) and longest point streak (10-0-2). Vegas features six 20-goal-scorers, including trade-deadline addition Tomas Tatar. The Golden Knights closed the season 6-3-2, with the regulation losses coming against non-playoff teams: Arizona, Edmonton and Calgary. Marc Andre-Fleury went 29-13-4, but allowed six goals on 18 shots in a season-ending 7-1 loss at Calgary. The defensive-minded Kings allowed a leaguelow 202 goals and had the leagues best penalty-killing unit. Jonathan Quicks 2.40 goals-against average was sixth among goalies appearing in 40 gamesJETS vs WILDThe Jets closed their most successful season in both victories and points on a 20-5-1 run, including winning the final nine home games. Winnipeg is still searching for its first playoff victory after being swept in two previous appearances: by Anaheim in 2015, and by the Rangers in 2007, when Jets were based in Atlanta. Paul Stastnys trade-deadline addition provided the NHLs second-best offense with six 50-plus point producers. Third-year goalie Connor Hellebuyck went 44-11-9, and broke the single-season record for victories by U.S.-born goalies set by Tom Barrasso. The Wild limp into their sixth straight playoff appearance with defensemen Ryan Suter (broken right ankle) and Jared Spurgeon (torn right hamstring) sidelined, though Spurgeon is expected back from a 17-game absence in this series. Eric Staals 76 points (42 goals, 34 assists) were third-most in team historyDUCKS vs SHARKSThe Ducks earned home-ice advantage with a 3-0 season-ending win over Arizona, coupled with the Sharks season-ending 6-3 loss to Minnesota. Anaheim went 25-10-4 since the bye break, and is 14-1-2 at home since Jan. 23. Goalie John Gibson went 21-7-3 in his final 31 decisions, but missed the final week and is listed day to day with an upper body injury. The Sharks went 19-13-3 over their final 35 games since Joe Thornton was sidelined with a knee injury. Martin Jones allowed five goals on 19 shots against Minnesota, and is 1-4 in his past five while allowing 17 goals.By FRED GOODALL Associated PressTAMPA Steven Stamkos is back on the ice, eager to lead the Tampa Bay Lightning into the NHL playoffs. The five-time All-Star missed the last three games of the regular season with a lower-body injury. He returned to practice this week and hopes to be ready Thursday for the start of a first-round series against the New Jersey Devils. It was obviously tough, said Stamkos, who watched the Lightning go 2-0-1 down the stretch to hold off the Boston Bruins for the Atlantic Division title and No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. You want to be in those games. But the more important games are now, and I just want to make sure I feel as good as possible heading into the playoffs, the teams second-leading scorer added. Hopefully it keeps progressing and I can feel good come Thursday. Stamkos, a twotime Rocket Richard Trophy winner, rebounded from missing most of last season with a knee injury to bolster the NHLs most prolific offense with 27 goals and a careerhigh 59 assists for 86 points in 78 games. The 28-year-old center anticipates a tough matchup against the young Devils, who won all three regular-season meetings between the teams. It doesnt really matter where you finish (in the standings) any more. All these other teams are their own different animals come playoff time, Stamkos said. Its a fresh start once you get into the playoffs. Regular season is regular season. We all know that. Stamkos health figures as a key to the series. He missed 65 games after undergoing surgery to repair a lateral meniscus tear in his right knee last season, when the Lightning narrowly missed the playoffs. Two years ago, a blood clot discovered near his collarbone sidelined the center from late in the regular season until Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals, when Tampa Bay lost to eventual Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh. The Lightning didnt practice Tuesday, but coach Jon Cooper said the team remained hopeful of having Stamkos back for Game 1 against the Devils. Stamkos is optimistic, too, though with his history of injuries in recent seasons he has no illusions about being completely healthy when he returns. Listen, my body will never be 100 percent, regardless, going through the stuff Ive been through, the No. 1 overall pick from the 2008 draft said. So theres no point asking about percentages.ROBERT GAUTHIER/Los Angeles TimesAnaheim Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf (15) argues with the Nashville Predators Colton Sissons in Game 5 of the 2017 NHL Western Conference Finals at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.

PRO TENNISVenus, Serena Williams join Billie Jean King equal pay pushBy HOWARD FENDRICHAssociated PressA day before playing in the 2005 final at the All England Club, Venus Williams addressed a meeting of the Grand Slam Board, urging Wimbledon and the French Open to offer equal pay to male and female players. I said: All of our hearts beat the same. When your eyes are closed, you really cant tell, next to you, whos a man and whos a woman. And (I asked them) to think about their daughters and their wives and sisters. How would they like them to be treated? Williams recalled. Sometimes, we lose track of, and dont even realize, our own bias and our own prejudice. And we have to confront ourselves. The following afternoon, she won one of her seven major singles championships. About 1 years later, Wimbledon announced it would, indeed, offer the same prize money to men and women in all rounds of the tournament, and the French Open soon followed suit, eliminating the pay gap at the four majors. Now, Williams and her sister, Serena, are adding their names and voices to the push for equal pay across all types of jobs that the Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative (BJKLI) is championing. The two current tennis stars are joining the advisory board of the group founded by the former player, and Tuesdays announcement was timed to coincide with Equal Pay Day, which approximates how far into a new year a woman must work to earn what a man made by the previous Dec. 31. Venus, in particular, helped us get equal prize money in the majors. She was amazing. She really got Wimbledon to make the big step, King said in a telephone interview. Venus has always had the courage to step up. And Serenas the same way. They step up. I mean, Serena is not afraid to say whatever is on her mind. Added King: Theyve been through a lot themselves, so they totally understand whats going on. The two of them have transcended sports. The BJKLI is not about sports. Its about every industry. To try to get equal pay for equal work, and that means across the board, from CEOs down to entry level. Her group was formed in 2014, and other advisory board members include 2003 U.S. Open champion Andy Roddick, former NBA player Jason Collins, singer Elton John and CNNs Christiane Amanpour. It was a pretty easy sell for King to add the Williams siblings, owners of a combined 30 Grand Slam singles titles, along with another 14 theyve won together in doubles. We always put our hands up for Billie. We love her. She has a tremendous history, not just in womens tennis, but in leading rights for people, in general, no matter who they were, Venus Williams said. Billie could be at the point in her life now where she could say, Hey, Im going to sit back and enjoy my life. But shes still working hard for others. And thats a prime example for every single person. Your work on this earth never ends, as long as there is inequality. King, for her part, looks at the Williams sisters as among those who can carry on the work she started decades ago. I am in my 70s, so I am looking to younger people to take up the mill as I phase out over time, King said. Ive got energy right now, so were teeing everything up so were in great shape for the legacy of the BJKLI, because I want it to have a life after Im out of here. halftime to a great Georgia team, these champions fought back as they did all season long. And they kept fighting and fighting. Trump also singled out individual players, including center Bradley Bozeman, who proposed to his girlfriend on the field after the game.

You know, not many people get invited to the White House, so not many people get invited to see the President and meet the President, he said. So this is a special day for our team.

Every time they scored we were fortunate enough to score and kind of grab the momentum back, Florida coach Kevin OSullivan said. Ive been here enough to know when the momentum kind of shifts to their dugout, sometimes its hard to get back. Answering back was the story of the game. We just kept putting pressure on them, we made no errors on the night, two freshmen pitching in a place like this, its not easy. [Mace and Leftwich] to give up three runs in 6.2 innings, I thought they did a really nice job. Cooper Swanson broke the tie with a solo home run to left field to put Florida State ahead 1-0 in the third inning. Florida responded with a rally in the fourth to take the lead. Jonathan India extended his hitting streak to 20 games with a single and scored on Wil Daltons double down the left field line. Austin Langworthy and Blake Reese had back-toback singles to bring two more runs in for a 3-1 lead. In the fifth, FSU got a run back after starting the inning with a pair of walks. A couple of groundouts moved the runners around to bring in a run. The Gators responded immediately, getting the run back and extending the lead to three in the next frame. The first two batters of the inning reached on a hit batter and walk and JJ Schwarz singled up the middle to bring in a run. Langworthy doubled into the gap to add another run for a 5-2 lead through six. FSU cut the deficit to two in the bottom of the seventh with a solo home run from Jackson Lueck, but Schwarz got it back with a blast of his own, his eighth homer of the season. We made a couple of mistakes and they were taken advantage of, Florida State coach Mike Martin said. We battled and we didnt get it done. Weve got a good ball club, we just cant make three errors and expect to win. Of course, you have to give credit to the other club, they did a very good job. Florida starter Tommy Mace went four innings and allowed two runs on three hits before giving way to classmate Jack Leftwich in the fifth. Leftwich went 2.2 innings before giving up the solo home run in the seventh, which snapped a scoreless streak of 13.2 innings over his last five appearances.
