By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comA former Alachua city commissioner was arrested Monday in Columbia County after deputies say he fled the scene of a hit-and-run and refused verbal commands, prompting them to subdue him with a taser. Ben Habib Boukari Jr., who stepped down from his seat in February, faces a felony charge of fleeing law enforcement and misdemeanor charges of reckless driving and resisting arrest. At 4:36 p.m. Monday, a deputy responded to the area of U.S. Highway 90 and Brown Road to investigate a hitand-run, accord ing to a Columbia County Sheriffs Office report. A caller told CCSO they were following a black Ford Explorer SUV west on U.S. 90 after it struck their vehicle, the report states. As the deputy approached the intersection of U.S. 90 and Hunter Road, the Ford traveled out of a ditch on the north side of U.S. 90 and sped through the east lane onto the west, forcing two vehicles off the road, according to the report. The deputy activated his emergency lights, executed a U-turn and pursued the Explorer, which continued to speed away, the report states. The Ford narrowly avoided collisions with two other vehicles traveling east on U.S. 90, according to the report. The Ford continued east, he report stated, before turning south onto Sweetbreeze Drive.Lake City ReporterTHURSDAY, A PRIL 12, 2018 | Y OUR COMMUNITY NEWSPA PER S INCE 1874 | $1.00 LA KECITY REPOR T ER.COM CALL US: (386) 752-1293 SUBSCRIBE TO THE REPORTER: Voice: 755-5445 Fax: 752-9400 Vol. 143, No. 269 TODAYS WEATHER Obituaries . . . . . . 3A Opinion . . . . . . 4A P uzzles . . . . . . . 2B Advic e & Comics . . 3B Fort White softballIndians take on P.K.

Its the highlight of the Alligator Lake Spring Festival held each year by the Four Rivers Audubon Society. The full scope of the aviary predators behavior can be seen by ground-bound onlookers thanks to the expert falconer scheduled to perform at 1 p.m. There will be trail walks with focuses on local wildlife, vendors selling natural products and a photo contest award presentation, plus free butterfly plant giveaways. Were trying to encourage people to plant some native plants in their yard, said Valerie Thomas. Thomas is the vice president of the organization that holds the event each year. She said its an annual celebration of the lake. Really what this is, is getting the public out and seeing the wildlife thats here in their backyard, said Thomas, who has been with the local Audubon chapter for over nine years. The lake is crucial for local environments and valuable to local economies. Its nearly 1,000 viewable acres serve as the headwaters for the Ichetucknee River Basin. Whats happening in Lake City really matters all the way, she said. Its importance stretches far beyond its visible body, with rivers running through circuitous stretches underground for miles, providing habitat, ground water, and an international draw for tourism across neighboring towns in the county. The event is a focus on that importance, she said. 9th annual event runs 8-3 Saturday at Alligator Lake.

BOUKARI continued on 2A Dunn: Sorry to see Paul Ryan goFrom staff and wire reportsWASHINGTON House Speaker Paul Ryan abruptly announced Wednesday he will retire rather than seek another term in Congress as the steady if reluctant wingman for President Donald Trump, sending new ripples of uncertainty through a Washington already on edge and a Republican Party bracing for a rough election year. The Wisconsin Republican cast the decision to end his 20-year career as a personal one he doesnt want his children growing up with a weekend dad but it will create a vacuum at both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue. It will leave congressional Republicans without a measured voice to talk Trump away from what some see as damaging impulses, and it will rob Trump of an influential steward to shepherd his more ambitious ideas into legislation. U.S. Rep. Neal Dunn, the Panama City Republican who represents most of Columbia County in Congress, wished him well. For a man who never wanted the job, Speaker Paul Ryan has achieved greatness as the leader of the House of Representatives, Dunn said Dunn Ryan House Speaker will not seek re-election.

On Monday, the Keystone Heights-based co-op celebrated National Lineman Appreciation Day and recognized all of its electric linemen for the services they perform to keep power flowing and protect the publics safety. Clay Electrics Lake City District Office held a breakfast on Tuesday to thank local linemen for the work they do every day. Our linemen are the heartbeat of our electric distribution system, and they work around the clock on high-voltage lines, said General Manager Ricky Davis. Conditions can be dangerous, but they power through to ensure reliable service for our members. More than 100 men maintain over 13,000 miles of line in the co-ops service territory. To honor these brave men, each Clay Electric district office hosted breakfasts and other events to celebrate National Lineman Appreciation Day. In 2013, the U.S. Senate passed a resolution designating April 18 as National Lineman Appreciation Day. The National Rural Electric Cooperative Association Board then designated the second Monday of each April as National Lineman Appreciation Day. The resolution represented the first time the NRECA Board has formally recognized a day in honor of linemen.

COU RTESY PHOTOSWe started it kind of like as a way to introduce Alligator Lake as the head springs of the Ichetucknee, Thomas said. She said people are interested in the lake and its impact. Attendance has nearly doubled since it began. The things that happen in Lake City the pollution any kind of human impact at waterways starts right there at Alligator Lake, Thomas said. The Ichetucknee is a big deal in this community. The event is scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. and wind down at 3 p.m. Admission is free. FESTIVALContinued From 1AA Dodge truck abruptly pulled in front of the fleeing vehicle and blocked its path. Backup units arrived and helped the pursuing deputy conduct a stop. The driver, later identified as Boukari, repeatedly ignored commands to turn off the vehicle, according to the report. After being ordered to exit the SUV, the extremely large male eventually complied, the report states. Boukari appeared to be unsteady on his feet and unable to follow commands, according to the report. He stumbled on the roadway, the report states. After being ordered to get on his knees, Boukari shook his head no and refused, according to the report. Due to his large size and refusal to obey, a CCSO corporal deployed a taser, striking Boukari in the lower back and buttocks, the report states. When they took him into custody, deputies noted Boukari was in a highly intoxicated state. After he was medically cleared, Boukari was taken to the Columbia County Detention Facility, but has since been released on $7,000 bond. Before he resigned in February, Boukaris term as an Alachua city commissioner was set to expire in 2020. In December, an area newspaper reported that the Eighth Circuit State Attorneys Office was charging Boukari with driving under the influence in connection with a collision from May. BOUKARIContinued From 1A in a prepared statement. From passing historic tax cuts for Americas families to rebuilding and standing firm for the men and women in our armed forces, Paul Ryan made a lot of personal sacrifices to do what was best for our nation. He has earned our respect, and just as importantly, our gratitude. Paul Ryan is truly a class act. Its unusual for a House speaker, third in line to succeed the president, to turn himself into a lame duck, especially so for Ryan, a once-rising GOP star who is only 48 and was the partys vice presidential candidate in 2012. His decision fueled fresh doubts about the partys ability to fend off a Democratic wave, fed by opposition to Trump, in November. And it threw the House into a leadership battle that could end up pushing Ryan aside sooner than he intended and crush any hopes for significant legislation before the election. Ryan, though, said he had no regrets after having accomplished a heckuva lot during his time in a job he never really wanted. He said fellow Republicans have plenty of achievements to run on this fall, including the tax cuts Congress delivered, which have been his personal cause and the centerpiece of his small-government agenda, even though they helped skyrocket projected annual deficits toward $1 trillion. I have given this job everything I have, Ryan said. Speculation over Ryans future had been swirling for months, but as he dialed up colleagues and spoke by phone with Trump early Wednesday, the news stunned even top allies. Ryan announced his plans at a closed-door meeting of House Republicans. Rep. Mark Walker of North Carolina said an emotional Ryan choked up a few times trying to get through his remarks and received three standing ovations. He later briefly thanked Trump in public for giving him the chance to move GOP ideas ahead. RYANContinued From 1A

OBITUARIES By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comAn 87-year-old OBrien man died when his tractor was struck from behind on U.S. Highway 129 Wednesday morning, an FHP report said. Gerald William Heitsman was headed north at a slow speed near 208th Street in Suwannee County at 10 a.m. when his 1979 Ford tractor was hit by a 2007 Ford Focus driven by a 31-year-old OBrien woman, the report said. The driver of the Ford Focus, Amanda Michael Douglas of OBrien, failed to slow down on approaching the tractor, according to FHP. Neither she nor her 2-year-old passenger, Kynlee G. Kitchen, also of OBrien, was hurt. Both were wearing seat belts. Heitsman was thrown into the east shoulder of US 129 and the tractor was pushed into a ditch. Alcohol was not a factor, the report said. Man, 87, killed when tractor hit from behindSteeple work for landmark churchBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThe steeple atop First United Methodist Church can be seen from miles away. Its white with artistic designs, has a gold-colored cross on top and looks brand-spanking new. It is rather new thanks to a construction recent project where the church had renovation work done to it. The present sanctuary and Christian Education building were erected at 973 S. Marion Street at a cost of $770,566. The first service took place Palm Sunday, May 22, 1970. A dedication service and the mortgage burning were celebrated Palm Sunday, April 12, 1987. Earlier this year the churchs congregation, under Pastor Jim Walker, decided to have the steeple renovated. John Willis, First United Methodist Church trustee chairman, has been a member at the church for 40 years. He said the churchs steeple was constructed sometime from 19681970. It was made extremely well with steel beams and concrete, Willis said. There are concrete levels to the steeple and the belfry tower is wrapped in wood and the wood was beginning to deteriorate after the years. The ONeal Roofing Company has a work crew that is been working on making the necessary improvements to the steeple. The crews have been using a crane where they were elevated and given access to both the interior and exterior of the belfry as they improved the structure. Mr. ONeals [crews] have gone up and taken down the rotten wood and replaced the rotten wood, Willis said. Theyve repainted the entire metal steeple and the metal cross at the top. The crews started the project approximately a month ago and have three weeks work into the project.

House Speaker Paul Ryan is retiring, and some say good riddance to bad rubbish while others of us say the rubbish resides in the critics. He is one of the best things to happen to Washington in years, this Wisconsin Republican who has been pragmatic, principled, prudent, caring, honest, knowledgeable, calm, compromising and innovative. The trouble is that being the best thing can also make you a bad fit. How many others, for instance, would be so audacious as to try to fix Medicare in order to sustain it and deal with a killer debt? Doing something so responsible is to have demagogues lynch you or, seeing as how that could get them in trouble, come up with a televised video showing you push an old lady off a cliff in her wheelchair. This is precisely the kind of vile tactic the left has consistently employed to win votes and devastate the public. The fact is that Medicare and Social Security constitute a mammoth part of the unified budget, that baby boomer retirements are causing a cost explosion and that the only way to fix things without economic mayhem is adjustments to the programs. That does not mean people are suddenly going to be cheated left and right, but that is what the left pretends by way of cheating the people left and right. So Ryan came up with a voucher program that would still serve beneficiaries while reasonably tamping down the dangers, and thats just not the way Washington works. Along the same lines, he then came up with a welfare reform package that would mightily serve the poor, believe it or not. The program would be work-oriented, and here was its genius: It would have third parties regularly evaluate whether different parts were working so that it could be revised as needed and actually accomplish its objective. Fellow conservatives did not leap aboard. Nor did very many rush to embrace his concerns about mass incarceration, a significant problem in my estimation. His fellow office holders did recognize his leadership qualities, however. Even President Barack Obama voiced appreciation for his willingness to buy into reasonable compromise. The congressman has had his share of important accomplishments and he has provided able leadership that has helped keep the worst from happening no matter how hard so many worked to get there. Some say the latest budget was close to the worst, and it was definitely not good in its trillion-dollar deficit ambitions. Was something better possible given our confused, tweet-fixated presidents weaving-and-waving strategies and the impossibilities of anything of merit ever passing through either the Senate or the House? Polarization is the word of the moment, ideological idiocy is a competing phrase and politics as usual has come to mean chaos. There are so, so many destabilizing factors in Washington today. Lacking 10 volumes in which to list them, lets just note a special counsel probe as determined as a falling rock to land on something, a dissolution of congressional powers, an administration deserted by some while firing others and policy overstatements that are either the art of the deal or the deals of the artless. Actually, there was a major matter that did get through the Senate and House under Ryan, and that was a tax reform measure helping to revamp the economy even as we speak. Here is something that will do so much for so many that it is hard to overstate its value. We are talking about American revitalization if doing something about the debt is not forgotten. Ryan could just maybe help in all of this, but especially with the possibility of Democrats taking Congress in the midterm elections, futility could also become his middle name. He says he wants to spend time with his children. Thats important, too.

In 1776, North Carolinas Fourth Provincial Congress authorized the colonys delegates to the Continental Congress to support independence from Britain. In 1861, the Civil War began as Confederate forces opened fire on Fort Sumter in South Carolina. In 1934, Tender Is the Night, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, was first published in book form after being serialized in Scribners Magazine. In 1945, President Franklin D. Roosevelt died of a cerebral hemorrhage in Warm Springs, Georgia, at age 63; he was succeeded by Vice President Harry S. Truman. In 1961, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first man to fly in space, orbiting the earth once before making a safe landing. In 1963, civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. was arrested and jailed in Birmingham, Alabama, charged with contempt of court and parading without a permit. (During his time behind bars, King wrote his Letter from Birmingham Jail.) In 1985, Sen. Jake Garn, R-Utah, became the first sitting member of Congress to fly in space as the shuttle Discovery lifted off. In 1988, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued a patent to Harvard University for a genetically engineered mouse, the first time a patent was granted for an animal life form.

The outstanding Ryan departs TODAY IN HISTORY To the Editor: I respectfully thank the candidate, who is no longer running for a soon-to-be vacant City Council seat, for withdrawing his name from this important race. In all the years I have voted (over 65), there have been reasons to vote for, or against, a certain candidate. Positive reasons: (1)To step aside for the younger generation. Its always a good idea to be aware when you are at an age you should not try something that is better left to someone younger. Its your decision: your reasons will be your own. (2) Supporting another candidate you feel will do a better job. Your reasons will be your own. (3) Believing it would be in the best interest of the community. Again, your reasons will be your own. Negative reasons: (1) Fearing you will split the vote against another candidate. More fearful should be the lack of voters getting out there and casting a ballot, which is always a sad reality. (2) Wanting someone out of office so bad. I would rather hear why you want someone IN the office. The incumbents record should speak for itself and allow me to have my own reason(s) to vote for or against them. It is rather presumptive to be confident that one candidate can beat another without a runoff. It is also in poor taste to actually publicly state that a certain candidate likely wont be a big factor in the election. You might be surprised! I prefer to see common courtesy and common sense in my elected officials, although neither seems common any more. I was so hoping our local ones could do what so many of our state and federal officials seem incapable of doing, but now I dont have such a good feeling this is going to occur. Lets play nicely in the sandbox we call our city and work toward the good of the entire community and not just our own agenda.

I stopped to have the air checked in my tires and as before he told me the right front tire was low again. I decided to have them check it out and to put fluid in for the windshield wiper. I have gone to Tire Kingdom quite frequently with a friend but never to have service on my car. In the meantime I pondered whether to pay by check or cash. It depended what the charge would be. Seldom is anything free today. Almost one hour later, Youre ready to go. I was in total shock when I was told no charge. I wonder if Ill ever recover!

Willis said he was pleased to see the steeple get the work and attention it needed. Weve been in the church for 40 years and this is kind of a dream come true to see the steeple put back into its original integrity, he said. Just having the steeple renovated to its original form didnt hamper the church from making some additions. Were presently hooking the belfry back up so we can have a little music through the bell tower, through its bell system, Willis said. Its a long tradition weve missed here in the last few years that were trying to get back into the traditional church. Martha Jane Carter, who is working on historical documents for the church, also said she was happy to see the steeple get repair and renovation work.

By JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comNEWBERRY The Fort White Indians dont make excuses when they lose. They only look in the mirror. Wednesday night was no different. Fort White committed three errors, walked seven batters and hit three more in a 9-7 loss to Newberry on the road in District 5-5A action. Pitcher Cody Morgan and Ethan Perkins combined to give up seven runs in the first three innings and the Indians could never rally, despite sending the tying run to the plate in the seventh. Perkins was saddled with the loss when Newberry broke a 3-3 tie with four runs in the third. The Indians (9-8, 4-5) missed a chance to create some distance from Newberry in the district standings, instead falling 1/2 game behind the Panthers (9-6, 5-5) in a very tight race. Were just not keeping our heads in it, Perkins said. Kyle Lee, who started on the mound with a no decision for Newberry, went 1 for 2 at the plate with three RBI on a double and a bases-loaded walk. David Robinson, who went 3 for 3, and Parker Aultman, who finished 2 for 4, also both had an RBI with two runs scored apiece. The Panthers displayed a balanced lineup just like they did in their 12-4 win over the Indians on Mar. 21. Makai Jenkins and Justin Newberry also had an RBI each and Newberry scored two more runs on a wild pitch and an error. Theyre a good ball team. We made a lot of mental errors tonight. Not so much physical errors but mental errors, Fort White coach Rick Julius said. The kids didnt give up. They kept battling but when youre playing a good ball team you cant have mental and physical errors. Trey Houk gave the Indians a quick 1-0 lead in the top of the first but it was very short-lived. Morgan only lasted a 1/3 of an inning, pulled when Aultmann tied the game with an RBI single. Morgan was charged with two more runs when Lee knocked a two-RBI double off Perkins.

The Lady Indians continue to make their case, using bunts and couple long balls to record 13 hits versus district foe Blue Wave Wednesday night. Fort White was just as strong in the circle as senior pitcher Shelby Dubose dominated from the start. Dubose fanned four batters, surrendering just two hits in another complete-game performance, anchoring Fort White to a 10-0 mercy-rule victory over P.K. Yonge. The longer shes pitching in a game, the better she is, Fort White coach Michele Padgett said about the teams ace. The looser she gets, the better she is. Dubose was supported by strong production at the plate from her teammates. Fort Whites Raven Miles and Jessica Burns both drove two runs each. Jen Allen went 3-for-4 with 2 RBI, helping the tribe secure the three seed in the district standings. I was just focused, keeping my eye on the ball, the sophomore said. When its game time, I just focus in.PREP BASEBALL JORDAN KROEGER/Lake City ReporterNewberrys Cameron Harper slides into home plate safely as the ball gets by Fort White catcher Caleb Mathews during the third inning Wednesday night. INDIANS continued on 6BERIC JACKSON/Lake City Reporter From staff reportsTALLAHASSEE In front of 2,138 fans and in her first career game against the Gators, redshirt senior Kylee Hanson pitched a gem on Wednesday night as No. 13 Florida State (34-7) earned a 4-1 victory over No. 6 Florida (34-7) in the first game of the annual Fresh From Florida Sunshine Showdown. Hanson tossed a two-hitter and posted five strikeouts in the complete game victory to improve to 20-3 on the year. It marked the eighth consecutive start where she allowed two or fewer hits, and her 14th of the season in 23 appearances. It is the first time that Florida State has won consecutive games against the Gators since 2006. The Seminoles have won four straight games over ranked teams in 2018 and are 8-3 on the season against teams in the NFCA Top 25. Kylee pitched a great game, said FSU coach Lonni Alameda. The game plan was to attack the zone and be able to mix speeds early. Against a lefty-dominated lineup, as a righty pitcher, that was a pretty good job for her. A great team effort and Carsyn had some big swings and set the tone for us, and a lot of great defensive plays. The Seminoles got an early lead with a solo home run in the bottom of the first by Carsyn Gordon. She drove a 1-1 pitch to deep center, nearly hitting FSU Director of Coaches Video Craig Campanozzi in his scissor lift at the height of the top of the scoreboard. Florida tied the game at 1-1 in the top of the third as Jordan Roberts drew a leadoff walk and Alex Voss ran for her at first. A sacrifice bunt moved her to second base and Voss scored on a one-out RBI double by former Columbia star Kayli Kvistad. Florida State retook the lead in the bottom of the fourth as Gordon led off with a walk. Sydney Sherrill traded places with her on a fielders choice and Jessie Warren hit a single off the third base bag to put Seminoles at first and second with two outs. Zoe Casas lined an RBI single to center to make it 2-1 FSU. Deja Bush entered to run at second for Warren and Bush and Casas executed a perfect double steal to move into scoring position. A walk to Cassidy Davis loaded the Hanson tosses two-hitter in win over No. 6 FloridaRedshirt senior strikes out 5 in 1st game vs. Florida.COLLEGE SOFTBALLFort White pitcher Shelby Dubose delivers a pitch at P.K.

The top-ranked Johnson wound up 10th in last weeks major, his third straight appearance in the top 10 on the challenging layout. I definitely expect better, Johnson said Wednesday in prepping for this weeks RBC Heritage. I felt like I played well enough to win last week. The problem was simple enough to identify watching putts not fall in. The thing thats most frustrating is it wasnt that I was hitting bad putts. I was actually hitting good putts, they just werent going in, he said. Johnson hopes to remedy that at Harbour Town Golf Links, a place the South Carolina native has not played professionally since 2009. Johnson, whos won a PGA Tour event in 11 straight seasons, typically took a vacation after the Masters to shake off the stress that comes with the first major.

Elliott was docked 20 points, and Gustafson was fined $50,000. The 20-point penalty drops Elliott from 15th to 18th in the Cup standings. Hendrick Motorsports says in a state ment it wont appeal the penalty.

Jeff Teagues jumper with just over a minute left in overtime put the Timberwolves ahead to stay, and Minnesota topped Denver 112-106 on Wednesday night to grab the final spot in the NBA playoffs. The last West spot was the only one up for grabs on the seasons final night. It was the NBAs first winner-gets-in, losergoes-home game since 1997. Denver would have gone to the post season with a win at Minnesota. Minnesota is in the playoffs for the first time since 2004 ending what was the longest active drought in the NBA. The East is also set. It took 82 games, the entire regular season and even an overtime in Miami to decide things, but the bracket for the Eastern Conference playoffs is filled. No. 1 Toronto will play No. 8 Washington, No. 2 Boston will meet No. 7 Milwaukee, No. 3 Philadelphia draws No. 6 Miami and No. 4 Cleveland gets No. 5 Indiana. All the Game 1s will be Saturday or Sunday, at the lower seed. Indiana went 3-1 against the Cavaliers in the regular season. All the other firstround matchups are ones where the play off foes split four meetings this season.MLBAMERICAN LEAGUE East Division W L Pct GB Boston 9 2 .818 Toronto 8 5 .615 2 New York 6 6 .500 3 Baltimore 5 8 .385 5 T ampa Bay 3 9 .250 6 C entral Division W L Pct GB Minnesota 6 4 .600 Cleveland 7 5 .583 Chicago 4 7 .364 2 Detroit 4 7 .364 2 K ansas City 3 7 .300 3 W est Division W L Pct GB L os Angeles 10 3 .769 Houston 9 4 .692 1 Seattle 6 4 .600 2 Oakland 4 8 .333 5 Texas 4 10 .286 6 NA TIONAL LEAGUE East Division W L Pct GB New York 10 1 .909 Atlanta 7 5 .583 3 Philadelphia 6 5 .545 4 Washington 6 6 .500 4 Miami 3 9 .250 7 C entral Division W L Pct GB Pittsburgh 8 3 .727 Chicago 6 5 .545 2 Milwaukee 7 6 .538 2 S t.

Florida threatened in the top of the fifth as Aleshia Ocasio hit a oneout double off the top of the wall in center that was inches away from tying the game. A pair of two-out walks to Nicole DeWitt and Amanda Lorenz loaded the bases, but Hanson got out of the jam with a pop out to second base. The Seminoles rode that momentum to a pair of runs in the bottom of the fifth to break the game open. Morgan Klaevemann led off the inning with a slap single to shortstop and came in to score on an RBI triple by Cali Harrod, her fourth triple of the season. Gordon drove in her second RBI of the game a batter later on a ground out to short for the 4-1 Seminole lead. Hanson retired the Gators in order in the sixth and the seventh to close out the game. It was surreal, said Hanson. I couldnt stop looking up at the crowd and taking it all in. I only get one year of this, but it was incredible. I cant believe they get to (play in this rivalry) every year, that was so much fun. Florida is a very patient team, and we knew wed have to roll with the punches and go at them as best I could with strikes. The Seminoles hit the road for a three-game series at Boston College (21-15, 8-3 ACC) on April 13-15. The Eagles will be commemorating their new stadium at the Brighton Complex this weekend and games are at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, 2:30 p.m. on Saturday and 12:00 p.m. on Sunday. FSU Continued From 1BAssociated PressPITTSBURGH Sidney Crosby had his third career postseason hat trick, Evgeni Malkin added a highlight-reel goal and the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins opened the playoffs with a 7-0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday night. Crosby batted a shpt out of the air and past goalie Brian Elliott in the second period for his first goal, tapped in one from the doorstep against Petr Mrazek 7:41 into the third and then deflected in another just over three minutes later. Jake Guentzel had a goal and three assists for Pittsburgh. Bryan Rust and Carl Hagelin also scored. Matt Murray stopped 24 shots for his third straight playoff shutout. Game 2 is Friday night in Pittsburgh. Elliott stopped 14 of 19 shots and was pulled in favor of Mrazek after Crosbys latest bit of wizardry pushed Pittsburghs lead to 5-0 just 9:01 into the second. Mrazek wasnt much better, getting beaten by Crosby twice more as Philadelphias return to the playoffs after a one-year absence started with a thudJETS 3, WILD 2In Winnipeg, Manitoba, defenseman Joe Morrow broke a tie with 6:13 left and Winnipeg beat Minnesota n Game 1 for the first playoff victory in franchise history. In its only other playoff appearances since joining the NHL in 1999 in Atlanta, the franchise was swept in 2007 by the New York Rangers and 2015 by Anaheim.

LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, APRIL 12, 2018 3B DEAR ABBY: My mom is a recovering alcoholic. Her alcoholism has caused emotional distress and damaged our relationship to the point that I am aloof and terse toward her. Shes six months sober now, receiving help and making an effort to repair the hurt and pain she has caused. But Im struggling in moving forward. My mom is generous, kind, loving, and has always been supportive. I feel guilty for the ambiva lent part of me that could car e less about fixing the issues SHE caused in our relationship. It saddens both of us that I have a hard time being kind and loving toward her. Any advice? -STUBBORN TEEN IN SOUTH CAROLINA DEAR TEEN: Alcoholism is a disease that affects not only the drinker, but also those close to her (or him). That your mother is receiving help and working to remain sober means she is trying as hard as she can to get better and remain that way. Forgiveness isnt automatic. It is a conscious choice on the par t of the injured party. To think you are alone in this situation would be a mistake. Ther es a support group for younger family members of alcoholics called Alateen. If you attend some of the meetings, it may help you to be kinder and more loving toward your mother. Alateen groups are everywhere. To find one visit al-anon.or g. DEAR ABBY: Recently I was late to work because I slept in and my boss was upset about it. But the thing is -its really none of his business, is it? What I do on my own time isnt the business of my employer. I dont ask him what he does when he isnt here. This has happened a few times and I know it might present a problem, but I dont think its his place to tell me what to do outside of work. How is that legal? I need the extra sleep in the mornings because I like to stay out late at night, which is my right as an American. If I need extra sleep in order to perform my job at a higher level, then isnt it better for the company that I sleep in? Im hearing blame when I should be hearing thank you. -MY BUSINESS IN INDIANA DEAR MY BUSINESS: Forgive me if this seems harsh, but your bosss business IS his business. Businesses have regular hours of operation, which are usually stated in the employee handbook you should have read when you were being hired. Its the duty of an employee to show up on time AND in condition to perform his/her job. Im not surprised your boss is upset. Its a natural response when an employee whos relied upon acts irresponsibly, which is what you have been doing. Because you prioritize your social life above your work life, consider looking for a job that star ts later or has flexible hours. You may need it. DEAR ABBY: What is the purpose of high school graduation announcements? DEAR W ANTS: Graduation announcements are usually sent to close family and friends. Recipients ar e under no obligation to send a gift. Your congratulations should be enough.

Observation will help you avoid mistakes and encourage greater insight into emotional situations. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Explore new interests or bring an old dream or pastime back to life. Engage in creative endeavors that give you the freedom to push your skills and talents to the limit. Love and romance are highlighted and short trips encouraged. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A steady pace and being honest about what you can accomplish will help you reach the goals you set. Don't feel you have to put someone else's needs before your own. Good fortune will come from doing what's best for you. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You can solve any differences you have with someone if you are patient and willing to listen to complaints as well as suggestions. Working with instead of against someone will lead to common ground. Romance is encouraged. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Take a good look around you and consider what you can do to make your life more comfortable. Personal changes to your living quarters or a physical update to the way you look will lift your spirits.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Share your intentions, and you will find out exactly where you stand and what you need to do in order to reach your goal.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You'll be tempted to make changes to your current direction or friendships with people you've known a long time. Reverting back to old habits will not turn out to be as progressive as you hoped and will lead to challenges you didn't expect. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Let your emotions out, and share your thoughts, feelings and intentions. You can make headway if you are honest about what you want. Personal changes will lead to greater opportunity and self-satisfaction. Romance is in the stars. April 12: Musician Herbie Hancock is 77. Musician John Kay of Steppenwolf is 73.

The team will travel to competition in Daytona Beach on April 14-15. third when Tanner Trice was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded and Morgan followed with a sac fly RBI. But Newberry answered right back with four more runs in the bottom half, which included a bases-loaded walk and a bases-loaded wild pitch by Perkins. We just didnt pitch very well early, Julius said. I pulled Cody out because he was a one-pitch pitcher and theyre dead-red hitting team so I had to get him out since we have a big district game (tonight) so we can still use him (against Keystone Heights). The Indians closed to within a run in the top of the fourth when Trice drew a bases-loaded walk before Morgan hit an RBI ground out and Jacob Sosa delivered an RBI single off of reliever Austin Spilamn, who picked up in the win. But the Panthers had another answer again in the bottom half, scoring two more runs on Robinsons RBI single and another on a throwing error at the plate to go ahead 9-6. That ended Perkins night, as he took the loss in 2 2/3 innings of work. He gave up three hits, walked five and hit a batter. When I was throwing strikes, (the umpire) wasnt giving them to me at the plate and that just kind of started it all right there, Perkins said. Once you kind of get your head down on something like that then everything stops falling your way. Then we had errors and stuff and you cant go with errors like that and expect to win. Caleb Mathews pulled Fort White a little closer in the sixth with an RBI single. Jeremy Barber reached base on a one-out in the seventh but Dylan Schaffer came in and recorded the final two outs to pick up the save for Newberry. The Indians still have three district games left at Keystone Heights (tonight) and Santa Fe (Apr. 17) and at home against Bradford (Apr. 19). Its going to be an interesting couple of weeks, Julius said. MENTAL Continued From 1BP.K. Yonge (2-14. 1-10) had troubles defensively early on against Fort White (8-8, 7-4). The Lady Indians capitalized on costly errors as early as the second inning and used to timely hitting to spoil the Blue Waves senior night Wednesday. It didnt take long for Fort White to take advantage of P.K Yonges shaky defense, opting to bunt after a flat first inning at the plate. The change paid off as the Blue Wave committed pivotal errors, trying to defend Fort Whites small-ball attack. It puts pressure on the defense, assistant coach Chad Padgett said of the adjustments. If they dont make a play, you keep doing it until they can make a play. Leading 3-0 in the third, Miles extended the advantage with a two-run shot over the left field fence. Allen and Burns added two more runs in the following inning. After Miles scored again in the fifth, Allen and Burns finished off the Blue Wave with two more runs in the sixth, hitting their way to their first win at P.K. Yonge since 2012. The Lady Indians have now won back-to-back games after snapping a fivegame losing streak. Fort White hopes to keep the bats alive with four games remaining. I think were doing pretty good, Allen said. We arent making as many errors as we did before. I think were really coming together. I think we just had a slump because our spring break was two weeks ago. From the practices and more games we have, I think were coming back together like we did in the beginning of the season. After refocusing at the plate and cleaning up the errors, Fort White seemingly has bounced back from the spring break losing skid. The Lady Indians look to keep building up momentum heading into the District 5-5A tournament in two weeks. But one thing is clear: they arent the same team that took the field two weeks ago. They got their heads back in it too, Michele Padgett added. Around spring break theres a lot of outside of influences, testing and all that. Their heads are back in it now. They walked up here [to the field] and really wanted to win We didnt even have to say anything to them. They were hyping themselves up, so their heads are back in it. You cant coach that. You can encourage, but you cant coach that want to win.UP NEXTFort White hits the road again to face Hamilton County in Jasper tonight. P.K. Yonge is set to play at Newberry tonight. RBC, Ill be back here for the next few years. A popular theory about Johnsons absence was his length off the tee and strength made him a bad fit for architect Pete Dyes narrow fairways and small greens. One of the PGA Tours tightest courses puts a premium on shot location versus 350-yard drives. But Johnson proved that theory wrong with birdies on 10 of the last 17 holes in Wednesdays pro-am. Last time I checked, hes the No. 1 golfer in the world. He is the best golfer on the planet, said Wesley Bryan, the RBC Heritages defending champion and Johnsons former high school teammate. So as long as were playing the game of golf, I think that hes got a good chance of winning anywhere he tees it up. Johnson heads a less power-packed field than at Augusta National. There are seven of the top 25 in the field: Paul Casey (13th), Marc Leishman (16th), Tyrell Hatton (18th), Matt Kuchar (21st), Brian Harman (23rd) and Kevin Kisner (25th). Johnson acknowledged hell use the driver less frequently, four, maybe five times in a round, than most weeks on tour. Still, it comes down to making shots and few on tour do that as well as Johnson. It doesnt matter where you play or what course it is, youve still got to hit good golf shots no matter what youre hitting off the tee, he said. I like this golf course. That could be bad news for the field, which includes perennial Harbour Town runner-up Luke Donald. Hes finished in the top three here seven of the past nine times he has played. Donald is second all-time behind Jim Furyk in money earned at the RBC Heritage with more than $3.76 million. A former No. 1, Donald said its essential to focus on the course, not the competitors. Having Johnson at Harbour Town strengthens the field and brings a little more interest to the tournament, said Donald, who finished a stroke behind Bryan last year. But, again, Ill be playing against the course, not Dustin. Johnson likes his game so far this season. He won the Tournament of Champions in Hawaii three months ago and finished second at Pebble Beach. Not a great job at winning, he said. But the game definitely (is) in good form. Ive got a lot of confidence in my game right now, and Im really looking forward to this tournament.
