A friend teases her about something in the way that friends do. Theyre enjoying their afternoon at Woodpecker Mud Bog in White Springs, despite the downpour that started 10 or 15 minutes ago. A few seconds pass. Crack. Boom. Flash. Everything after that is a bit of a blur. It happened very fast, Delgado recalled. It looked like I was looking into a bright light and it shook my body. Delgado came to lying on the ground. A fog of confusion wrapped around her mind. I didnt know what happened, she said. I immediately started panicking and screaming. She looked around and saw the other five people in her group were also knocked down. Her friend, Kourtney Lambert, 23, was unresponsive. Theyd only known each other about seven months, but had become close. Delgado couldnt feel her left leg. It finally dawned on her what had happened. The lightning strike burned two holes in her jeans where it pierced her leg. Max! Max! she cried, trying to get the attention of Lamberts husband. She started hitting her leg until she could feel it again, pushed herself off the ground and supported Shelby Delgado recovering at home after death of friend.

Hunter Peeler, who has his eyes on the School Board District 5 seat, raised $9,300 in cash between September and March, most of which he spent in the last three months, according to campaign filings. Danny Green, who is running for re-election to the School Board District 1 seat, is the next best-funded candidate for local office, having raised $8,650.

Correction Lake Shore Hospital A uthor ity board member Jay Swisher gave executive director candidate D ale Williams 58 out of 60 points during an evaluation on Thursday night. Fridays edition indicated otherwise.herself on the side of the trailer. Holding her head to keep it upright, Delgado pulled out her phone and called 911, her boyfriend and her father in that order. The boyfriend, who was in North Carolina, thought she was joking when she told him about the lightning strike around 3 p.m. But when she continued to scream and beg him to come home, he realized it was no prank. A nurse on vacation from Michigan gave Lambert CPR in vain. I was crying, Delgado said. I remember running over there. Deputies were there asking questions about Lambert. Ambulances arrived at the scene, and one took Delgado to Lake City Medical Center and the other carried Lambert to Lake Shore Hospital. As she was loaded into the ambulance, Delgado felt it in the pit of her stomach. Her friend was dead or dying. The day before, they went to a nail salon, ate together in Gainesville, went shopping. Later that evening, they watched The Descendants on Netflix at Lamberts house. Delgado was in a daze when her boyfriend called her at the hospital to tell her Lambert was dead. I just was kind of looking around. I didnt understand why she passed away, she said. A lot of stuff was going through my head. About 40 minutes after she arrived at LCMC, Delgado was taken to the ER at UF Health Shands in Gainesville. Early Sunday morning, the hospital transferred her again to a burn unit, where she spent the next day. She was sitting on a couch with her boyfriend Monday morning when hospital staff told her to get ready. It wasnt the surgery itself that scared Delgado. It was the idea of going under anesthesia. Never been under that before she said. Thats really what I was worried about. Doctors started the surgery at 11:15 a.m. The necrotic tissue around the lightning burn needed to be cut out. They had to cut three or four inches deep to excise all the tissue. Doctors put 20 stitches in the wound on her left hip and bandaged her up. About an hour later, Delgado woke up as they were rolling her out of the operating room. I was in a little bit of pain because they put a tube down my throat, she said. Hurt for two or three days after. The physical pain subsided substantially in the following days, Delgado said, and now she is home. But shes struggling to confront the fact that her friend is dead. We had her funeral yesterday, Delgado said Friday. Its hard to believe. Lambert had a memorable laugh. My boyfriend is super funny, Delgado said. He would just make Kourtney laugh so much. Delgado said she always felt comfortable texting Lambert for advice when she had a problem. She was always there for me, she said. SHELBYContinued From 1AMother, daughter face charges for meth, potBy COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comA Lake City mother and daughter were arrested on drug charges when neither admitted to owning the meth and marijuana found after a deputy spotted the latter stash something before their Thursday traffic stop, a CCSO arrest report said. Traveling east on U.S. Highway 90 around 2:30 p.m., Terri Lee Jewett, 57, of Mayo Road, was stopped by a Columbia County Sheriffs deputy who said he was on routine patrol. The deputy found Jewett was driving with a suspended license after running her tag number, the report said. But the deputys statement said it was the last minute movements of Jessica Nicole Jewett, 35, of Barts Terrace, before the black truck came they were in came to a stop, that tipped him off to the presence of potential substances. While the vehicle was coming to a complete stop, I observed the passenger reaching behind the drivers seat as if she was trying to conceal something, the deputys statement said. Seeing that, he called in for a K9 unit from Lake City Police. He stated both Jewetts had told him nothing would turn up from the search. But after the police dog sniffed around the truck he alerted to the left side of the vehicle, the report said. A blame-game ensued when the deputy found a small black hygiene bag in the same compartment as a gun, which Terri had previously told the deputy was behind her drivers seat, the report said. It was the same location the deputy stated in his report that Jessica Jewett reached before their traffic stop. Inside of the black hygiene bag was a clear meth pipe, a clear baggie with a green leafy substance, a marijuana pipe and a small green baggie of a clear substance, the deputys statement said. Terri Jewett told the deputy the drugs belonged to a roommate and she didnt know they were there, but the daughter seemed to indicate otherwise. Jessica mentioned while I was searching the vehicle her mother Terri told her that there is a meth pipe in the vehicle, the report said. She also told him the items werent hers, and like her mother she was also unaware of their presence in the truck. Due to neither of the parties admitting to the drugs, both Terri and Jessica were arrested, the report said. Mother and daughter were both placed in jail on $11,000 each for seven counts of drug and paraphernalia related charges. Terri Jewett has since been released. Her daughter is being held for violation of probation. T. Jewett J. Jewett Daughter blames mom for meth pipe, sheriffs report says. Man faces robbery charge over $10By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comWitness testimony in an arrest report says a Lake City man assaulted a 54-year-old woman in her car outside a Dollar General over $10 he said she owed him. Coty Diserrio Seymore, 36, of NE Fryer Street, was arrested on one charge of robbery and placed in Columbia County Jail on $5,000 bond, a CCSO arrest report shows. He has since been released on bail. An investigator with the CCSO worked on the case over a series of days gathering witness accounts, viewing store surveillance, interviewing the victim and ultimately Seymore and a woman he was allegedly with at the time. The first testimony included in the report under probable cause was obtained by the victim. She said Seymore, pulled her out in a headlock and the grabbed her purse and took money. The report documented alleged eyewitness testimony from two people who said they watched the scene unfold and called police when Seymore began to accost the woman. One witness stated they were walking into the store when they saw him approach her, demand his $10 with profanity-laced screams, and began fighting the woman while still in her car. The incident was reported on April 3, and Seymores arrest was made on April, 5. The deputy responded first to the scene, and according to the report followed up with several interviews of the suspects, the victim and witnesses. The deputy noted in the report that there were other stores closer to their residence, and neither Seymore nor the female actually made a purchase lending veracity to victims account she was followed there. She stated she first saw Seymore driving to the store, and he followed her into the parking lot, the report said. It said video from the store didnt show the interaction but did capture the witnesses who had gathered to watch the scene. In the investigators interview with Seymore, he told the deputy the victim had started the altercation while he was at the store buying diapers. Mr. Seymore stated he and [the victim] got into a verbal altercation and that in the course of it she was sticking money into his face. Mr. Seymore stated that he stepped back and was raising his hands. Mr. Seymore advised he hit (the victims) hands and the money went flying all over, the deputys statement said. Further testimony from Seymore said it was the victim who was demanding the money, and he offered to pay her back what he swatted away. However, the report concludes with the deputies statement, which said: When searched Mr. Seymore had $10 in his pocket. Witness statements advised that Mr. Seymore was attacking [the victim]. Based on this and the report that money was taken, Mr. Seymore is charged with robbery by sudden snatching. Seymore Allegedly accosted woman in her car over unpaid debt.

Melanie Wells, who won her bid for a seat on the Archer City Commission on Tuesday, had not lived in the city for the required six-month period before she could qualify, alleges a complaint filed with the Florida Elections Commission on April 6. Wells changed her residence from Lake City to Archer on March 31, 2017, according to her voter registration information, though the form still shows a Lake City mailing address. The complainant, Archer resident Ann Batey Green, alleges that Wells attended an event at the St. Phillips Masonic Lodge of Gainesville in December, where she told attendees that she would soon be moving to Archer, the complaint states. Several citizens have made that known to city hall, but not in writing, Green wrote in the complaint.

Rough weather could do some damage hereBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comColumbia County may get a heavy dose of inclement weather today as a squall line, predicted to bring rains and heavy rains, passes through the area. There is a possibility of severe storms, said Shayne Morgan, Columbia County Emergency Management Director. According to information from the National Weather Service in Jacksonville, it looks like the inclement weather will impact the county anywhere from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Well see some rain, but the big thing well be looking at is the possibility for wind coming through that could cause some dangerous situations like blowing down trees, limbs and power lines. It just depends on how the squall line makes its way across the county, as to how much impacts well see. This is definitely something that the public should keep to their local media outlets and keep abreast of whats going on with that storm system. Morgan said the county has made plans for the inclement weather and the conditions it may bring. Our departments are good with following the weather and whats going on with the weather, he said. Theyll go out and respond as necessary once its safe for vehicles to get once the squall line has come through. It should be a relatively fast moving system its not going to just sit and linger. Morgan said local officials are cautious about what the squall line could bring and the different ways the storms could impact the county including of local rivers. Earlier in the week there were some issues and the Santa Fe River was up, so well have to monitor and see if the storms have any impact on our local area rivers, he said. Thats going to depend on how much rain falls in Georgia and how much rain we get locally. UN rebuffs Russia on US aggressionBy EDITH M. LEDERERAssociated PressUNITED NATIONS The U.N. Security Council overwhelmingly rejected a Russian resolution calling for condemnation of aggression by the United States, United Kingdom and France against Syria on Saturday, a vote reflecting support for the allied airstrikes on Syrian chemical sites. But the vote at the end of an emergency meeting called by Russia also demonstrated again the paralysis of the U.N.s most powerful body in dealing with Syrias seven-year conflict. Russias demand for condemnation and an immediate halt to aggression and any further use of force by the three Western allies got support from only two other countries on the 15-member Security Council China and Bolivia. By contrast, eight countries voted against the Russian draft the U.S., U.K., France, Netherlands, Sweden, Kuwait, Poland and Ivory Coast. Four countries abstained Ethiopia, Kazakhstan, Equatorial Guinea and Peru. At the meeting, the fifth in a week on chemical weapons in Syria, Russia and its supporters again clashed with the U.S. and its allies over a suspected poison gas attack on April 7 in the Damascus suburb of Douma. The U.S., U.K. and France said they launched airstrikes against Syrian chemical sites after obtaining evidence that a chemical weapon was used by President Bashar Assads government. Russia and its ally Syria called the attack fabricated and said no evidence of chemical weapons use exists in Douma. U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley told the council there is clear information demonstrating Assads culpability. And she said President Donald Trump told her Saturday morning that if the Syrian regime uses poisonous gas again the United States is locked and loaded to strike again.

Excitement continues to build around the upcoming Parade of Homes event set for the weekend of April 28-29 in Lake City. We are honored to partner with the Columbia County Builders Association to revive this tradition of showcasing new-home construction in Columbia County and this years event is set to be a banner showing. So far, there are 18 new homes that will be ready to show prospective consumers interested in browsing new construction in beautiful settings that are unique to our secret piece of Florida. There will be homes of all sizes and floor plans showcased. This event started as a good idea, evolved into a solid project, and now it has blossomed into a full-blown feel-good community event that has become a positive rallying point for our business community. And rightfully so. We all remember the spark that lit the most consistent fire under Lake Citys economic growth key word, consistent and that was the steady increase in home building and real estate growth. Its far too soon to predict another anything more than what we see right in front of us and thats a positive spring season, but a positive spring we all will take. Heres a brick-and-sheetrock example: When we began the discussions about this Parade of Homes, we had 15 solid mentions of interest to put new houses on display. Each was under construction at various stages of the building process, but non complete. Within the following two weeks, six of these new, partially-completed homes were sold. Walk-up buyers. Yes, six. So, with the help of the CCBA team, we all shook the bushes and found other builders in the game. A few others saw the first of the ads that ran in the Lake City Reporter in March, got excited about the events potential and jumped at the chance to show their work. I can confirm this: this Parade of Homes event has also electrified our business community in an absolutely positive way. We have always and continue to be a pro-business newspaper, often chastising local government for excessive fees, red tape and regulations. We also advocate to make sure Lake City remains an affordable and attractive place to live and do business. The business climate is exciting again in Lake City. Our business partners are realizing this and being in business in town once again is starting to be, well, fun. And very few people have been able to say that during the past decade. There truly is hope the economic upswing may continue to trend steadily upward. I want to personally thank our many sponsors and advertising partners who believe in Lake City as much as we do and believe in what were trying to accomplish with this Parade of Homes. They believe the timing is right and they see the potential in our present and our future. Most of all, I thank them for the trust they have placed in us as their community newspaper and marketing partner. We are this communitys newspaper. We are a reflection of this community and it is our job to lead and promote and take an active role in Lake Citys future. Stay tuned for more exciting marketing products coming in the next two weeks. Check out the full-page ad again in todays paper that lists all the featured home builders and the addresses of the new houses on display. A more-detailed, complete listing with photographs of the homes will be published in a special section on Wednesday, April 25, and, of course, all of this can be seen at www.lakecityreporter.com if you prefer the digital format. I hope everyone will dedicate some time on the weekend of April 28-29 to visit some or all of the homes featured in the Parade of Homes and support Lake Citys rising Builders Association. Rally for this group of builders that may be the catalyst for Lake Citys next economic stride.

This mission will be accomplished through the teamwork of professionals dedicated to truth, integrity and hard work. Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINIONFor elections, stay vigilant and focusedAs the August primary nears, election rhetoric is rising fast, especially at the city level. We expect it to ratchet up even higher before its through. It is clear how some voters Americans whose most fundamental rights have been stolen here in recent cycles, whether in for form of fraudulent absentee ballots or otherwise might be tired of business as usual in the politics game. Their rage is entirely reasonable. Still, they must stay focused on the task at hand and not be duped into making the 2018 race about anything but the issues. For the system to work, honest people have to believe in it. Follow the rules, follow the law. If you see something inappropriate happening, report it to the supervisor of elections and the Columbia County Sheriffs Office, which has jurisdiction countywide. Then tell us here at the Reporter. We will be monitoring this election more closely than ever before. Any suspected impropriety will be tracked down to the best of our ability and exposed. We are hoping for a clean race. But for that to happen, constant vigilance will be required on the part of all voters. Well have plenty more to say on this matter as election season wears on. In the meantime, do not lose hope in the system. To get off track now is to give the game away to those who do not believe in representative government or the rule of law. If we do our duty as Americans, they cannot win. Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY On this date: In 1817, Americas oldest existing school for the deaf opened in Hartford, Connecticut. In 1865, President Abraham Lincoln died nine hours after being shot the night before by John Wilkes Booth at Fords Theater in Washington; Andrew Johnson became the nations 17th president. In 1892, General Electric Co., formed by the merger of the Edison Electric Light Co. and other firms, was incorporated in Schenectady, New York. In 1912, the British luxury liner RMS Titanic foundered in the North Atlantic off Newfoundland more than 2 1/2 hours after hitting an iceberg; 1,514 people died, while less than half as many survived. The excitement builds TODAY IN HISTORY The recent Boy Scouts of America meeting in White Springs honoring Eagle Scouts and others reminded me of my own missing Eagle Scout badge. I hope it is buried six feet under in the casket of friend Joe Crews. Here is the story. When I was 12 years old Joe took me to a Boy Scout meeting at Troop 87 of the First Methodist Church. I fell in love with scouting that night, joined the troop, and three years later I was awarded my Eagle Scout badge. Ironically, Joe moved away the next week and never attended another scout meeting anywhere. I learned that Joe and I went down different paths from then on. I stayed in scouting nearly five years and later became a teacher. Joe moved to St. Augustine, dropped out of scouting and school, and became a long distance career truck driver. I heard from Joe occasionally over the years and we always remained friends, geographically apart, emotionally together. Then maybe 40 years later I learned Joe would be attending our class reunion. I was thrilled and knew just what I wanted to do. The night of the reunion, Joe was there. When it came time for me to speak briefly, I used that time to review how much scouting had meant to my life and that Joe was the reason I had joined the scouts in the first place. I asked Joe to come forward and I told him and our group that I felt my Eagle Scout badge partly belonged to Joe and with a few words gave my treasured Eagle Scout badge to Joe. Pinned it on his shirt pocket. Joe was not the crying type but that night he shed a tear and maybe I did too. Joe died several years ago and I do not know if Joe hung onto the badge or lost it somewhere along the way. But, in my heart of hearts, I like to believe that my Eagle Scout badge was buried with Joe and that they both are still together, six feet under, in a small cemetery somewhere in St. Johns County. 40th ANNIVERSARYOn June 19, 2018, The Richardson Day Care Center will celebrate their 40 years of exceptional service. The founding officers those 40 years ago were: H.L. Rountree, President; Ethel L. Combs, Vice President; Catherine Pearce, Secretary; Jenny C. Kelly, Assistant Secretary; Margaret H. Williams Financial Secretary; and Rosa O. Scott, Treasurer. Let us hope these founders will be remembered in a special way on their 40th anniversary.

They roam sidewalks, shrubbery and storm drains in twos and threes, but mostly theyre alone, peering at patrons of local restaurants walking to their car any given night of the week. Local animal control officials said they are roughly 39,000-strong in Lake City, but theyve got a feline fix if they can find the funding. Largely harmless to humans, theyre anklehigh predators to anything smaller than themselves, effective at keeping local rodent populations down. Meanwhile their ranks grow. To house cats they can be potential agents of disease like feline leukemia and HIV, LCHS administration said. Facility Manager Tom Barritt called the unchecked cat growth a major crisis in the county. But with a strong trap, neuter, release program, he said they could substantially knock back their numbers. Its only one of three problems the shelter could tackle, given adequate funding for a new low cost spay-neuter clinic. He said they would be poised to stem feral cat tide, and also provide a much needed low cost spay-neuter option for the roughly 12,530 county residents living below poverty levels, according to US Census data. According to the demographics theres 20 per cent of the population in Columbia County either at or below the poverty level, so thats really the demographic that were going for, Barritt said. We want to be able to help out those who cant afford to go to a regular vet. Those were two of three areas Barritt said the clinic could benefit that he promoted speaking at local civic organizations. The third he said would provide a resource for LCHS to conduct its own spay-neuter operations. Currently the coun ty-funded shelter outsources to a variety of entities and programs, some as far away as Jacksonville and Gainesville, to perform procedures on cats and dogs; all at a cost to the shelter that would be much lower with the new clinic. Right now its costing for every animal that we spay or neuter, Barritt said. He said less than five percent of the roughly 3,300 cats and dogs it takes in each year, or nine per day, have received the procedure. The shelter absorbs the cost of the $40 per cat and $60 per dog for the operation, which is a requirement before they can be adopted, he said. Barritt is new to LCHS, having taken on the role last September, but Dale Griffin has been there for about 10 years as director of operations. Griffin said, Itll still cost, but a lot less. They are now taking the project to local civic organizations and businesses in efforts to find corporate sponsors. This is for the community. Were giving back to the community, so what we need is the community to participate in this, Barritt said. Thats what we really need is that corporate sponsorship to get behind what were trying to do for the community.Humane society drums up support for trap, neuter, release.COREY ARWOOD/Lake City ReporterTom Barritt, facility manager at the Lake City Humane Society, thinks the best way to deal with 39,000 stray cats in Lake City is a trap, neuter, release program. LCHS is currently trying to raise funds privately for the program.

7A SUNDAY, A PRIL 15, 2018 LOCAL LA KE CIT Y REPORTER NATURAL GAS SAFETY ADVISORYe Pipeline Safety Improvement Act of 2002 requires pipeline operators to develop and implement a public aware ness program. At the City of Lake City (COLC), our goal is to continue to provide safe, reliable natural gas service to our customers and ensure the safety of those who live and/or work near our natural gas pipelines. e objective of this Public Awareness Program is: To educate the public on how to recognized the odor of natural gas and respond if they detect possible gas odors. Early recognition of gas odor and property response can save lives and property. To warn the public about potential safety problems with certain exible appliance connectors To raise awareness about the presence of buried natural gas pipelines in our community To help the public and excavators understand the steps that they can take to prevent damage and respond properly if they cause damage to our pipelines To educate the public about how to prepare for hurricane season with regard to natural gas appliances.What Is Natural Gas?Natural gas is a mixture of hydrocarbon gases, primarily meth ane (CH4), naturally occurring in rock formations deep below the earths surface. e natural gas is withdrawn and trans-ported to homes and businesses through an underground sys tem of pipes.Natural Gas Safety PrecautionsNatural gas is colorless, odorless, lighter than air, and non-toxic. Breathing natural gas is not harmful as long as there is an adequate supply of fresh air to breathe along with it. Natural gas by itself will not burn, but with the proper mixture of gas and air combined with an ignition source, combustion can occur.Why Does Natural Gas Smell So Bad?Natural gas is safe, clean, and ecient, but it has no odor. To identify natural gas we add a harmless odorant called mercaptan which gives natural gas its distinctive ROTTEN EGG smell.What Should I Do If I Smell Natural Gas?e natural gas industry has an outstanding safety record, but if you smell natural gas, in the event of a gas leak inside a building: Do not turn on or o any lights or appliances. Do not use your home phone or cell phone in your house. Do not light matches. Immediately extinguish any cigarettes or open ames such as candles. DO leave the building and call COLC from a nearby phone at 386-752-2031 and follow the recorded instructions, then wait for our representative to arrive. Leaks from natural gas pipelines are extremely rare; however, it is important that you know how to recognize the signs of a leak if one were to occur in your area. A strong odor of ROTTEN EGGS, hissing sounds, or dirt blowing up from a hole are signs of a leak. If you suspect a leak: Do not try to x the leak. Do not light matches, smoke, use a cell phone, or attempt to enter or start any vehicle. DO move away from and upwind of the suspected pipeline leak before calling the Lake City Natural Gas Department at 758-5405. Follow the recorded instructions, and then wait for our representative to arrive to in vestigate the situation. In any case, if you feel that life or property is in danger, CALL 9-1-1. e Lake City Natural Gas department has an excellent working relationship with our police and re departments.Flammable Vapors and Appliances Are a Dangerous MixNatural Gas Appliances Use Pilot Flames to Start the Appliance. Do Not Store Substances with a Flammable Vapor Near a Natural Gas Appliance. Both gasoline and kerosene produce vapors that can catch re causing severe burns or property damage. Vapors cannot be seen. ey are heavier than air and can move along the oor a good distance from the original source by way of air currents coming from other rooms. An active pilot light on an appliance can light these vapors causing a re. DO NOT use or store ammable products such as gaso line, solvents, or adhesives in the same room or area where a water heater or any other gas appliance is installed. Keep am mable products stored in approved containers with lids tightly closed, and keep them away from children and appliances. Keep paper, curtains, paints, solvents, etc., away from gas appliances. ey can be a re hazard.Why Be Concerned About Carbon Monoxide?Carbon Monoxide (CO) is an odorless, tasteless, invis ible gas that can be formed when fuels like charcoal, coal, gasoline, kerosene, natural gas, propane, or wood are burned with an insucient supply of air. A natural gas appliance could produce carbon monoxide if: Boxes, laundry, or other materials are blocking the base, restricting airow. e vent hood, pipes, or ues are blocked or corroded. e unit is installed or adjusted improperly It is used incorrectly (i.e., heating a room with a gas stove or using a gas or charcoal grill indoors). e heat exchanger is cracked. Call the Lake City Natural Gas Department for natural gas appliance inspections. Natu ral gas furnaces and heating products such as replace logs and space heaters should be inspected every year. Other ap pliances, such as heaters, clothes dryers, ranges, and cook tops should be checked for proper operation. All natural gas appliances come with a manual. Always read the manual for proper installation, cautions, and warn ings What Is Carbon Monoxide Poisoning?e early eects of Carbon Monoxide poisoning mimic the u, so watch out for these warning signs: Headache Nausea or vomiting Dizziness and disorientation Muscle weakness or fatigue If the u-like symptoms are NOT accompanied by fe ver, or if everyone in the family is ill, or if the symptoms disappear when you leave the house, you may have a CO prob lem. If CO symptoms are present, leave the building immedi ately and call the Lake City Natural Gas Department at 758-5405, and we will send a trained technician to test for Carbon Monoxide. Prevention is the only way to deal with carbon monoxide, and the best pre vention is regular inspection by a trained service technician.Prevent Damage to PipelinesToday, more and more utility companies that supply your home with electrical power, natural and propane gas, water, sewer, telephone, and cable television service are delivering those services underground. Its also possible that these bur ied service lines are close to the surface, making digging a dangerous and expensive proposition. Fortunately, you can nd out where utility owned lines are buried on your property with one FREE call to Sunshine State One Call at 811. When you make that one call, Sunshine State One Call will notify our member companies of your project and will, in turn, advise you where the buried lines are located. Florida law requires that you wait two full business days before beginning your project. is law also applies to contractors, excavators, or anyone who is digging on private or public property. e majority of utility accidents are caused by hitting underground utility lines.

S UNDAY, APRIL 15, 2018 LOCAL LAKE CITY REPORTER 9A companies. Peelers opponent for the School Board District 5 seat, incumbent Stephanie Finnell, raised $4,200 in cash. Finnell wrote two checks to her own campaign in February totaling $1,200, then another $3,000 check to the campaign in March. Green lent his own campaign $4,000 and another $1,900 in March. Green faces two opponents, Linard Johnson and Narrie Smith. School Board District 3 candidate Steve Nelson, who is running unopposed, gave his own campaign a $200 loan in March and reported no campaign finance activity since. There are two contested County Commission races with a total of five candidates. Rocky Ford, for County Commission District 2, lent his own campaign $1,000 in October. Marc Kazmierski lent his own campaign $100 in March and contributed $1,000 worth of signs, campaign cards and miscellaneous office supplies. Scott Thomason, the third of the three candidates in the County Commission District 2 race, raised $6,094.99 in cash since July and $417.84 worth of in-kind contributions. Two candidates are vying for the County Commission District 4 seat incumbent Everett Phillips and challenger Toby Witt. Phillips lent his own campaign $500 in January. In February, he gave the campaign a banner valued at $100 and $1.30 worth of material for petitions in March. Witt raised $770 in cash and received $20 worth of in-kind contributions. In September, Witt gave his own campaign a $100 loan. In February, Witt contributed $20 worth of printer paper and ink to his own campaign. He received a $250 check in March from Dennis Roberts, a retired public defender. The same month, Witt lent his own campaign $420. Vanessa George, who is running to unseat incumbent Eugene Jefferson for City Council District 10 seat, collected a total of $3,370 in monetary contributions in February and March and $225 worth of in-kind contributions. Jefferson lent his own campaign $2,000 in March and has reported no other contributions. Clarence Tucker, the only other current candidate for the seat, reported $450 in total monetary contributions and no in-kind contributions. City Council District 14 can didate Ricky Jernigan reported only a $500 loan from himself in March. Jernigans opponent, Chris Greene, reported a $1,000 loan from himself the same month. MONEYContinued From 1AFlorida, Jacqui Sulek, said the event likely made event attendance history. The hawks, falcons, and owls of Kitty Carroll of Live Oaks Accipiter Enterprises were a main draw. They were followed closely by the snakes and turtles of the Florida Park Service and Ichetucknee Springs State Park, while a more mature audience seemed drawn to the native plant species given away by Four Rivers Audubon. Its all about connecting people with nature, said Sulek. Without native plants you dont have birds. When we take all of our native plants out of our landscape we lose our birds Sulek said the lake is a site on the Great Florida Birding Trail, which she said was boon for local tourism with the second most popular hobby in the United States. She said there was another reason the event was held at the lake. Its also the headwaters for the Ichetucknee, and thats very important because what we put on the land around here and what people put on their yards, that type of thing, all goes into that springshed system. The springs are the beginning of the water, not the end, Sulek said. She said Four Rivers Audubon holds bird trail walking events on the first Saturday of every month at the lake. The event also served as the hub for groups, both nonprofits and governmental charged with educating and protecting local lands, wildlife and parks, each with representatives who spoke to families stopping by their booths. Florida Forest Service, Ichetucknee Springs State Park were there, along with a number of local advocacy groups from the surrounding areas of Fort White and High Springs.

He didnt wear a headset or have a play-calling sheet. He didnt touch the football or get in the huddle. He was hardly even noticeable at the teams annual spring game at the Swamp. Yet his role the last three months and the next three months is more critical to the programs planned turnaround than anyone else. Strength and conditioning coordinator Nick Savage is working behind the scenes to return the Gators to form. The early results? Mullen said players averaged a 3.5 percent loss in body fat during the first two months Savage has been there, eye-popping numbers that prove what Florida had been doing wrong and what Savage is doing right. Thats pretty good in two months, Mullen said. He could market that and get his own infomercial and make a ton of money off it if you advertise that, right? Savage officially unmasked what people close to the program, including former coach Jim McElwain, suspected was a problem in recent years. Former strength coach Mike Kent, who followed McElwain from Colorado State, was seemingly in over his head. A fter a long, winding journey through A fter a long, winding journey through A the college ranks, filled with highs and lows, basketball star Melton Sanders is ready to take his game to the next level.

Heuston Morrill was just a little bit better. Morrill pitched a complete-game shutout to help Suwannee defeat rival Columbia 1-0 at Booster Stadium. Love went pitch-forpitch with the Oklahoma State commit until the sixth inning, when Josh Wharton perfectly executed a squeeze bunt to score Marquis Jones from third. Our third baseman came in and our first baseman came in and it was just a perfectly placed ball. Nothing you can do about that, Columbia coach Brian Thomas said. Morrill struck out 13 and only allowed three hits with a hit batter. Clayton Steinruck was the only Tiger to register multiple hits off the ace, going 2 for 3 with two singles. The Bulldogs (10-9) bounced back after losing 1-0 just the night before to Lincoln while the Tigers (9-9) have now lost five of their last seven games. He just threw hard, really hard, Love said of Morrill. He was as fast as weve seen all year and he didnt throw his off-speed pitches until late. He blew by us with the fastball and we couldnt hit his off-speed. Love finished with four strikeouts, three walks and a hit batter. He only surrendered four hits, three of which came in the first inning when he worked out of a bases-loaded jam thanks to a diving catch in center field by Steinruck. Suwannees only other hit came in the sixth when Jones reached on an infield single as part of his 2 for 2 night. Morrill strikes out 13, out pitches Love in county rivalry match Friday night.

Secondand third-place winners in the mens division were 34-year-old Nicholas Brazier Alvarado with a time of 40:27, and 28-year-old Tuan Nguyen, 28, who completed the race in 40:36. Both are from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The event attracted 1,500 participants. ERIC JACKSON/Lake City ReporterColumbias Chace Curtis is joined on stage by Columbia coach Pete Whittington (right) and for mer LCMS coach Jason Langston during his signing in the school auditorium Friday afternoon. Curtis signed to wrestle at Limestone College. Curtis inks his letter of intent By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comColumbia senior wrestler Chace Curtis signed with Limestone College in front of friends and family Friday afternoon. Curtis, who is coming off a thirdplace state finish this past season, inked his letter of intent to wrestle with the Division II club. Curtis ends his high school career with quite the legacy after capturing the schools first state title in 41 years when he was just a sophomore. Curtis helped reestablish Columbias wrestling program, which is now regarded as one of the states best. Hes the best thats ever done it at Columbia High School, principal Trey Hosford said during the signing introduction. Hes done a huge part putting Columbia wrestling on the map. Despite battling some injuries, Curtis still finished his senior season with a 21-2 record and a bronze medal at state (126). Curtis leaves behind big shoes to fill at Columbia as gets set to begin a new chapter of wrestling in Gaffney, South Carolina. I was fortunate enough to come here a couple years ago and have an opportunity to have a great wrestler like Chace, Columbia coach Pete Whittington said. Not only is he a 2016 state champ, 2018 third in state, but hes s three-time district champ, three-time regional champ, and hes also an excellent student Hes exactly what you look for in an athlete.FILEChace Curtis (left) slams down an opponent during his freshman season at Columbia. Curtis won a state title in his second year with the program. His tactics came under more scrutiny when athletic director Scott Stricklin pinpointed Floridas strength and conditioning program as one deficiency during McElwains tenure. Its the backbone, Stricklin said. Any successful program has a really strong strength and conditioning program that builds accountability, and programs that arent as successful usually are lacking in that area. Mullen hired Savage to fill the void. Savage spent the last two years with Mullen at Mississippi State, so there was no transition period in Gainesville or even talks about philosophy and direction. Mullen trusted Savage to get the job done, and Savage went right to work installing a program that mandates heavier weights and an increased commitment to lifting. Savage caught players by surprise early. He took them on a 2.7-mile run around campus on Day One of his conditioning program he called it a team-building exercise and conducted circuit training along the way. They stopped in certain spots for situps, pushups and squats. We were like, Wait, what? defensive back Chauncey GardnerJohnson said. We thought we were just going to be running just to be running. Once we started, it was more like the more we went, we were straining. They were just getting started, too. Obviously its not pedal down all the way from Day One, Savage said. Youve got to kind of take your steps and build them up. Once that pedal got cranked down, it was a real eye-opener. Eventually, the results began to show. Guys could see progress on scales, in mirrors and especially in side-by-side photos. Talking to the guys on the team, its very different from what theyve done in the past, so theyre going to get that huge jump, Mullen said. I still expect to see big gains this summer because now theyre to the point where theyre in shape. ... The positive of that is its going to be easier to buy in more in the future because theyve seen those results in the short period of time. So if I just buy in over a long period, Im going to look like an SEC football player. Short-term results have drawn rave reviews, especially from those who experienced what happened before and whats happening now. Its stupid, said defensive tackle Taven Bryan, who is expected to be a first-round NFL draft pick this month. Savage is an unreal weight coach. ... Just the way he changes everyones bodies. We looked like the Pillsbury Doughboys. GATORSContinued From 1Bsystem along with how it adjusted to the pace of practice, but he is still searching for consistency. We can be a lot better. There are still too many mistakes that are drive killers like bad snaps or false starts, he said. There a lot of things we have to clean up but it is good to see guys making plays. The defense, which is being installed by former Michigan State defensive coordinator Harlan Barnett, was not able to force a turnover, but Taggart was impressed with how they did stopping the run and pressuring the quarterback. Taggart said he kept things vanilla for the spring game, but there was a double pass, two halfback passes and a fake punt. It is clear that Taggarts hiring after Jimbo Fisher left for Texas A&M has revitalized a program that has struggled the past couple seasons. Since winning 33 of 34 games between 2013 and including a national championship, the Seminoles are 21-12, including 10-10 in the ACC. Last season, Florida State needed to go on a four-game winning streak to go 7-6 and avoid its first losing season since 1976. It is like the chemistry he has built was fast, defensive tackle Demarcus Christmas said. He earned our respect quick and Im sure we earned his respect by pushing us. The energy he has brought to the program has enthused us. Here are some other things to know from Florida States spring and Saturdays game: QUARTERBACK RACE: James Blackman and Bailey Hockman had some flashes of nice plays throughout the spring, but both are firmly in the mix for the starting spot going into preseason drills. Hockman was plagued by a foot injury the last couple weeks of practices but led the Garnet squad to a 31-13 victory by throwing for 203 yards and a touchdown. Taggart said Blackman, who started 12 games last season, was hurt by a couple of drops by his receivers, but did a good job of moving in the pocket. Whether Deondre Francois remains a part of the competition is unknown. The junior, who did not take part in contact drills as he rehabs from a knee injury he suffered during last seasons opener against Alabama, was cited for marijuana possession last Thursday, which is his second off-field incident since Taggart took over. Taggart said Francois remains on the team and the matter is being handled internally. MORE DEPTH AT RUNNING BACK: Khalon Laborn was recruited last year as a five-start prospect but was redshirted. The 5-foot-11, 205-pound back concluded a nice spring with a 91-yard touchdown during the second quarter after the right side of the line opened a huge hole. NOLES Continued From 1B B2

S UNDAY, APRIL 15, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER 3B The quest for the perfect flats skiffBy MONTY STEPHENSSpecial to the ReporterThe term Flats Skiff seems like a broad, generic term that might apply to any boat fishing inshore waters. It is true that many styles of boats can serve as a flats skiff. But in south Florida where the boat we know as a flats skiff originated, there is one style. Flats skiff are usually under 20 ft. long. Their style emerged in the late 1960s and 70s as fishermen and fisherwomen sought better ways to ply the shallow waters for bonefish, permit, and tarpon. They are usually extra wide for stability so fishermen can cast from their large decks. Since push poles are used to maneuver in the shallow waters, they often times have a rear platform to stand on. Flats skiffs are now more popular than ever and can be found in use throughout the coastal areas of the southern US and the Bahamas. Through the decades since their inception, boat builders have continuously refined the flats skiff style in a manner suggestive of form follows function. So they have changed. But for at least one fisherman, the boats currently being produced do not have the classic lines and style that he desires. That left him with only one choice, build his own. Or perhaps he just wanted to build his own boat and tackle a monumental challenge. Were talking about Reeve Abraben, DMD. Dr. Abraben has practiced Dentistry in Lake City for over 28 years and is the owner of Lake City Family Dental Center. He grew up in south Florida (Miami area) and came to Lake City shortly after graduating from the University of Florida. As a kid, he didnt have a boat but fished the canals with his brother for Jack Crevalle and Snook. Then his family moved to Pompano Beach. His next door neighbor was Art Robinson, a retired Charter Boat Captain. Art took Reeve fishing on his boat many times. When they werent fishing, they worked on the boat for repair and maintenance. Reeve didnt know it, but he was hooked. When he had his family, Dr. Abraben ensured that fishing would be a part of their lives. To this end, he has owned many different boats through the years. His sons are now grown and have families of their own. For the past 10 years, Dr. Abraben has fished with friends and family but has not had a boat. He now wants to get back into boat ownership. As Dr. Abraben noted there are a lot of nice boats out there, but none that really grab me. Hence, why he wants to build his own. The quest for the perfect flats skiff led Dr. Abraben to Enviboats. Enviboats is located in North Carolina and provides all materials needed to build the boat. Enviboats has models from 14ft. through 50 feet. They use a computer to make a jig for hull lay-up. This is not buying a pre-made hull and then adding decks and so forth. The builder will make everything on these boats, including lay-up of the hull, decks, and center console. It will be built with Divinycell and epoxy resin. Dr. Abraben chose the Enviboat 17ft. Redfish Flats Skiff. He has been working on his boat for just about one year and it is 80% complete. His sons have helped him as well as friends. Dr. Abraben shared that one of the painstakingly slow phases, has been smoothing out the hull, so it will look professional. Since this boat was laid up from the inside out, this left the outside skin of the boat fairly rough. The fiberglass cloth leaves hundreds of small creases and dimples that must be filled and smoothed. This is time consuming and tedious work. Production boats are built from the outside-in using a mold. The outside surface (gelcoat) is the first thing applied to the mold followed by layers of fiberglass cloth. This makes the exterior silky smooth but leaves a rough interior. Using a mold does not make a boat better or stronger than using a jig to make the hull. But using a mold, the manufacturer can make many hulls from the same mold. Conversely, using a jig to lay-up a hull is a one-shot endeavor. So this method is suited for custom work but not for mass produced manufacturing. Florida Sportsmans Dream Boat has already been in contact with Dr. Abraben. When his boat is completed, it is slated to be included in their magazine or on one of their TV shows. It is projected the boat will be totally ready this coming fall. Im sure when the boat is ready and on its maiden voyage, Dr. Abrabens thoughts will drift back to his first fishing trip with Captain Robinson. But then again, maybe he will think of the first time he went fishing with his sons or brother. This is what fishing is all about.

From staff reportsA female panther and her two kittens are back in the wild today, after spending months in captivity. On April 10, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) panther team released the panther family on the Picayune Strand State Forest in Collier County. This is the first time the FWC has rescued, rehabilitated and released a family group of panthers. FWC biologists rescued the adult female panther, known as FP224, in December 2017 after she was struck by a vehicle on Collier Boulevard in Naples. They took her to the Animal Specialty Hospital of Florida in Naples where veterinarians determined she had a broken hind leg. Following a successful surgery to repair the fracture, the FWC panther veterinarian took the panther to White Oak Conservation Foundation for rehabilitation. In June, FP224 produced a litter of one female and two male kittens, and biologists suspected these kittens were near where their mother was injured. They set up cameras to locate the young panthers, and two of the kittens were photographed and captured immediately thereafter. Unfortunately, biologists were not able to capture the third kitten.FWC returns panther family back to the wildCOURTESY B3

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, ARPIL 15, 2018 Sports Department 755-5440By STEVE REEDAssociated PressBRISTOL Ryan Preece was willing to risk just about anything in hopes of bolstering his racing career. That meant going into major debt last year for a chance to run a few races on the Xfinity Series. But Preeces investment in himself paid off big time Saturday as the full-time NASCAR Modified Tour driver captured the Xfinity Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway and took home the Dash 4 Cash $100,000 bonus prize. Would I advise somebody to do what I did? Probably not, Preece said of incurring debt. But I wanted a chance. And it worked out. I guess if you want it bad enough it will all work out. Preece, driving the Joe Gibbs Racing No. 18 Toyota, added its gratifying that when I leave here and I will be debt free. He became the seventh different winner this year in the Xfinity Series in as many races, beating Justin Allgaier and Daniel Hemric to the finish line. Elliott Sadler finished fourth and Spencer Gallagher was fifth. Cup Series regulars were not eligible to compete because of restrictions placed on the Dash 4 Cash races. The 27-year-old Preece was racing in only his third Xfinity Series event of the year. It didnt bother the other Xfinity Series regulars that a non-regular like Preece won the money. In fact, they applauded his win. If you qualify for the show, you meet the criteria and you beat out 39 other dudes whose job it is to do this full time at a place like Bristol, well, congratulations you deserve it, Gallagher said. And thats it. Added Hemric: He drove his tail off and put himself in position and stepped up when he had to. Preece was strong all day, but it all came down to the final 10 laps. Brandon Jones bemoaned the final caution that came out late. He gambled by taking on only two tires. Preece, who took four tires, was able to take him on the restart and he pulled away for an easy victory. Preece was competing with three other qualifying drivers pole sitter Cole Custer, Christopher Bell and Hemric for the $100,000 prize. I take every race as a chance to build a future for myself, Preece said. Where I will be after this season I dont have a clue. But I wont be the one that prevents me from getting somewhere. I will do everything I can to make sure that I am not the weak link.COURTESYFormer Fort White star guard Melton Sanders starred for Warner University this past season.

The Fort White native dominated his senior year, averaging 22 points a game in the most complete season of his life. Quite the final chapter for the 22-year-old standout, who bounced around from three different schools to reach this point. Sanders spent two seasons at Indian River State before transferring to Missouri Southern State in 2016. He finally found the right fit at Warner University, returning to his home state of Florida this season to put the exclamation point on his college career. Three different stops isnt ideal, but if you ask him, he wouldnt change a thing thankful for every lesson learned. I think the most Ive learned is to stay patient and keep working, Sanders said. At the end of the day, as long as you put in your work, it will all pay off in the end I dealt with two foot injuries in my first two years of junior college, and last year not playing much, to this year showing everybody what I really can do. I think that just came from hard work and dedication, staying patient and waiting on my turn. Sanders turn has seemingly arrived. Hes recently been in contact with a few different agents, and hopes to have the right person hired soon. As spring graduation approaches, Sanders has already started preparing for life after college. Hes pegged for a pro tryout in Orlando on April 28, where he aims to woo professional coaches with his scoring prowess. Im looking forward to it, he said of the pro day. Theres going to be some pretty tough competition so I just want to get out there and show the coaches what I can do. Sanders strives to do well enough in Orlando to potentially secure a contract with a team overseas. He looks to be the next basketball standout from Columbia County to play pro ball. Warner University head coach Sean Hanrahan says theres no limit for his star transfer, who carried the Royals to the NCCAA National Championships. Hanrahan believes Sanders will find success, regardless if its on the court or not. Melton is an unique person because he has so many positive strengths. He could be a millionaire businessman, he could be a preacher, he could be a teacher, he could go overseas and play professional basketball. Hes got a lot of things he can do. I think right now hes trying to figure out where his passion is leading him. Sanders started showing flashes of his potential as early as middle school when he and his family moved to Fort White. He later starred at the nearby high school, where he anchored the Indians and took home all-state honors his senior season. He was an ideal player, the kind you want on your team, Fort White coach Isiah Phillips said of his former point guard. He came to practice everyday to work, wasnt playing around. He took it serious he was a leader and a floor general He ran the show. Sanders ran the show again at Indian River State, averaging 16 points a game at the JUCO despite battling a broken foot injury. And the obstacles didnt stop there. After transferring to Missouri Southern, he found saw his playing time dwindle to just a few minutes per game far from the scoring threat he imagined he would be. Averaging just over one point a game, he decided to take his talents back south. Sanders selected Warner University, where he reconnected with cousin and teammate Jordan Coppock. Coppock, a former Columbia standout, helped recruit Sanders to Lake Wales a small lake town thats welcomed him with open arms. Its easy to go from Missouri to Florida, Hanrahan said. He wanted to get closer to home. He was averaging less than one point a game in a system that he wasnt very good in. Theres two coaches on my staff that had a prior relationship with him, coach Sanchez and coach Matt [Warren], all of these things combined along with me telling him he would be a good fit. He loved the idea and once we plugged him into the system, and figured out what he could and couldnt do, he went from one point a game to 22. This season Sanders proved to be one of the best players in Division II, earning honorable mention honors on the NAIA AllAmerican Team. After winning the hearts of Royal fans, its time for No. 22 to see how his game stacks up overseas. Sanders embarks on the new journey, with plenty of support from his hometown. He can make it anywhere he goes, just needs an oppourtunity, Phillips said. Hes the type of player whatever they need him to do, hes going to work hard at it.Melton is an unique person because he has so many positive strengths. He could be a millionaire businessman, he could be a preacher, he could be a teacher, he could go overseas and play professional basketball. Warner coach Sean Hanrahan B4

Love and company never had a chance. I was just trying to get in ground ball situations and they had a fast guy (Jones), Love said. The ball just got by us. We just didnt make our plays but it happens. Despite a stellar outing by Morrill, the Tigers still had their chances at the plate. Their best opportunity came in the fifth inning, when Dylan Blair led off with a single and advanced to second on an error. Jamie Minchin then tried to sacrifice him over to third with a bunt but the ball rolled far enough away from the third base line that Morrill was able to field it cleanly and throw Blair out at third. Morrill then struck out the next two batters to end the frame. A ball a little bit closer to the line where the third baseman has to come and the pitcher has to chase close to the line, yeah then were good to go because third base is going to be vacated, Thomas said. But when a ball is hit to a guy thats that athletic on the mound, its a situation we probably dont want to go in. But thats a learning experience. Columbias only other chances came via Steinruck. The senior hit a one-out double in the second inning and advanced to second base on a passed ball, only to get stranded. He also had a one-out single in the seventh, only to watch Morrill end the game with back-to-back strikeouts. I thought we had a great approach at the plate, Thomas said. We hit some balls hard, we put baseballs in play and they just made the plays so my hats off to them. They made all the defensive plays they needed to make but we put balls in play. I thought as a whole, we were on every baseball we attempted to go after and thats all I can ask of the kids.

My wife brings home an additional $2,000 each month. Should we base our emergency fund level on her income only, since mine is guaranteed? Lewis Dear Lewis, Your emergency fund shouldnt be based on income. I recommend folks have three to six months of household expenses set aside in an emergency fund. What would it take to operate your household for that length of time if one or both of your incomes disappeared? I dont anticipate your income stopping, Lewis. But income loss isnt the only thing youre guarding against with an emergency fund. Youre also guarding against things like an illness in the family, if the transmission in the car goes out, or your homes heating and cooling unit needs to be replaced. There are many more crises that can come upon a family other than a loss of income. I dont mind if you two lean toward the threemonth side of expenses, since your income is pretty stable. But always remember, an emergency fund should contain three to six months of expenses, not income. Thank you for your service, sir. Dave Dear Dave, Ive started your personal finance course in high school, so Im asking this for the entire class. What happens to your debt if you pass away with no relatives or heirs to take responsibility for what you owed? Elizabeth Dear Elizabeth, In many cases it simply does not get paid. Relatives or heirs of the deceased are not responsible for a friend or family members debt, except in cases where they have been a co-signer on that debt. Lets say someones parents died, and at the time of their death they had $100,000 in debt in their names only. The only way that debt will be paid is if they owned enough stuff if they had enough in the way of assets to pay the debt. If they owned a $200,000 home, the house would have to be sold in order to pay the debts. Their estate would be the only thing standing good for the debt. If they owned nothing, and had no co-signers on any of the debt, the creditor would not get paid. The bank lost that money. Elizabeth, I hope that helped. Please tell your teacher I said thank you for leading the class! Dave Dave Ramsey is Americas trusted voice on money and business, and CEO of Ramsey Solutions. He has authored best-selling books and hosts The Dave Ramsey Show. Dave RamseyCEO of Ramsey SolutionsDAVE SAYS Lawson adds campaign adviserFrom staff reportsU.S. Rep.

Is the world ready for a ketchup-mayonaise mix?By ESE OLUMHENSEChicago TribuneMayochup is already available internationally, but U.S. consumers have yet to find the condiment a premixed mayonnaise-ketchup product made by Kraft Heinz in stores. The company, based in Chicago and Pittsburgh, proposed changing that Wednesday on Twitter, surveying saucy Americans about whether or not they wanted to see the product in U.S. stores. If mayochup gets 500,000 yes votes before Sunday, the company says, it will debut the product. By early Thursday afternoon there were more than 500,000 votes, with 55 percent in favor of the hybrid. Several of the nearly 8,000 comments responding to the survey were celebratory. Predictably, however, some of the voting populace engaged in terse Twitter debate about the proposed product, finding the idea more wretched than wonderful. What the hell is wrong with you people? Thats disgusting!! replied Twitter user @Jack9The3Knife. The marriage of ketchup and mayo is not new, said some, outraged at what they believe is a rebranding of fry sauce, a condiment thought to have originated in Utah. While some were curious about the new product, many fry sauce adherents lamented the seeming abandonment of the fry sauce name. Would the formula be similar, the beloved mayonnaise-ketchup ratio they appreciate replicated? This tears my heart in two, tweeted user @waderpotater. While I often dream of a world in which I can dip fried potatoes in fry sauce from coast to coast, I could not purchase or use a product that wont meet the necessary quality standards of fry sauce. Kraft Heinz, in a statement Thursday, acknowledged that the name mayochup is somewhat polarizing. It has committed to putting the final name up for vote if the product launches. Dawn Scheidner, assistant professor of marketing at Lewis University in Romeoville, tweeted that she appreciates Kraft Heinzs using the power of consumer voice as a marketing tool, even though she, a self-described antimayo person, hates the idea. Twitter campaigns like this drive consumer loyalty because they involve audiences in the process, Schneider said in an interview. Whether prospective buyers like the idea or not, talking about it and sharing the survey helps Kraft Heinz advance the campaigns reach, she said. And more consumers trust their friends and those they follow on social media than they do brands, Schneider said, making them even more likely to engage with promotions like this one. Its a really smart concept, she said, adding that Kraft Heinz has created a buzz about a product that literally doesnt exist yet. Another unanswered question: If mayochup does hit store shelves in Chicago, will it be an acceptable condiment on hot dogs? Flip phone is latest protest statementBy SCOTT ENMANTribune InteractiveNEW YORK Exactly one year ago, Roman Cochet swapped his $500 iPhone 7 for a $30 LG flip phone. Overwhelmed by constant alerts, Cochet felt his time was disrupted, his creativity drained. His flip doesnt do email, Instagram, Facebook, Uber or news alerts. The 30-yearold Parisian painter, who lives in Brooklyn, said he regrets nothing. With a smartphone, you spend so much time texting, talking, in constant communication, that you dont have time to do anything else, Cochet said. Im way more focused now on what Im doing. Im less distracted. In an age where everyone seems glued to their smartphone, the flip phone is turning into a statement of protest and individuality. These relics of the 1990s, still in wide use as disposable burners by crooks and FBI informants, are prized by a wider population for their simplicity, durability and affordability, not to mention their low-tech appeal to the burgeoning #DeleteFacebook crowd. Wait Until 8th, an organization that urges parents to delay their childrens smartphone use until eighth grade, has an ad that reads, Need to get in touch with your child? Buy a flip phone. The group has collected roughly 10,000 signatures from all 50 states in March. About 24 million Americans own a non-smartphone, according to Forrester Research. Its still enough of a novelty that celebrity flip phone users are immediately outed on Twitter and Instagram when spotted in the wild. Flip phone users include Oscar winners Daniel Day-Lewis and Frances McDormand, pop star Rihanna, NFL quarterback Andrew Luck, billionaire investor Warren Buffett and Vogue editor Anna Wintour. Steve Van Dinter, Verizons public relations manager for the Great Lakes market, said theres definitely a subset of customers who buy flip phones, primarily those who work outdoors and need a device that can withstand drops, corrosive materials, water and other extreme conditions. Verizon wouldnt continue to stock them, he said, if there wasnt consistent demand. The latest models have access to 4G LTE, HD voice and the ability to create a mobile hotspot for up to 10 devices. Cochet said some of his artist friends dismiss his choice of phone as a hipster affectation, an artists asceticism. But his studio, scattered with paint cans and empty beer bottles, is now void of a smart phones distractions. The phone itself is a throwaway object smeared with paint, the keypad indiscernible. Cochet said hes also become more connected to other people (he remembers the bodega cashiers name) and more present in the moment. Im way more conscious of my surroundings than if I was on my screen, he said.

Well announce it in next weeks edition. a whole market index, contains almost every U.S. stock, and there are even broader indexes, such as the FTSE Global Equity Index, which includes more than 7,400 securities in 47 countries and tracks about 98 percent of the worlds investable market. Investments such as the Vanguard Total World Stock ETF (VT) will quickly park you in that indexs components. Index funds usually sport extremely low fees often near or below 0.1 percent, while many managed mutual funds charge 1 percent or more. Theres little turnover within them, too, so commission costs are minimal. Best of all, investing in index funds is simple, taking very little time or energy. Once youve invested in them, you can forget about them (ideally adding money regularly, though). However the index performs in the coming years, your index fund will roughly track that in the case of broad-market index funds, delivering returns that roughly track the overall market. Learn more in John Bogles Little Book of Common Sense Investing: The Only Way to Guarantee Your Fair Share of Stock Market Returns (Wiley, $25).Profits BrewingStarbucks (Nasdaq: SBUX) has been a rapid grower for years, steadily expanding and often delivering double-digit earnings growth. However, steady weakening of its comps growth sales at stores open more than one year in the U.S. is viewed by some investors as proof that the best days are in the past, fueling a drop in its stock price. While theres reason to monitor Starbucks slowing growth in the U.S., savvy investors focusing on the bigger picture could do well buying now, because the growth likely isnt over. The company is working to improve its ability to meet strong demand during the morning rush, is expanding the availability of cold beverages and is introducing its mobile order and pay app to all customers, not just those who are members of its Rewards program. Starbucks still has a massive opportunity internationally, particularly in China. The store count there has more than doubled over the last three years, to 3,124 locations, and the company plans to grow that count to 5,000 by 2021. Its China market produced year-over-year comps growth of 7 percent last year, and an increase of 6 percent last quarter. Starbucks stock is appealingly priced for long-term investors at recent levels, and its dividend, which recently yielded 2.1 percent, was hiked by 20 percent in November. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Starbucks.) rffWiped Out by Bankrupt InvestmentMy dumbest investment was investing in Delta Air Lines when the company was in trouble and shares were trading for less than they seemed to be worth. I was sure some other company would buy Delta, but that didnt happen. It filed for bankruptcy protection, then emerged from it later with new shares, after wiping out previous shareholders like me. It almost prevented me from ever investing in stocks again. Eaamon, online The Fool Responds: Its often best to avoid companies that are going through tough times unless you have a lot of reason to believe that they will recover and prosper. Many times, struggling companies keep struggling for a long time and sometimes go under. Challenged by steep fuel prices and increasing competition, Delta had been unprofitable for years before filing for bankruptcy in 2005. (It wasnt the only airline to do so at the time.) It then underwent major cost-cutting before emerging as a new company in 2007. The airlines performance was a bit bumpy in the first few years after that, but then it became a solid performer. Delta has averaged annual gains of about 10 percent since exiting bankruptcy. Part of its success is due to its merger with Northwest and to beefing up its international business. The company has been posting strong numbers and is looking to add new fuel-efficient planes to its fleet. Goodwill, ExplainedQWhats goodwill on a balance sheet? L.B., Abilene, TexasAGoodwill is an intangible asset listed on a companys balance sheet if it has acquired another company, paying a premium over the intrinsic value. On the books, a company might be worth, say, $50 billion, but it might have other assets not represented on its financial statements, such as valuable brands, proprietary technology and/or patents. If those total $10 billion, the acquiring company might pay $60 billion, adding $10 billion of goodwill onto its own books. Some companies pay a premium price when acquiring others simply because theres a bidding war or other possible acquirers. Imagine that Carrier Pigeon Communications (ticker: SQUAWK), valued at $100 million, acquires Smoke Signal Communications (ticker: PUFFS), with a book value of $20 million, paying $25 million in cash. Carrier Pigeons value wont change. It will still be worth $100 million, but it wont have that $25 million in cash on its balance sheet anymore. That sum would be replaced by the $20 million value of Smoke Signal along with $5 million of goodwill. Just as capital assets such as factory equipment depreciate over time, with their value decreased eventually to zero, goodwill is also incrementally reduced to zero.***QAre the dividends in my Roth IRA taxable? E.M., Wilkes-Barre, PennsylvaniaAWhatever you invest in a Roth IRA grows free of taxes on capital gains and dividends. Your ultimate withdrawals will not be taxed, either, if you follow the rules. Traditional IRAs work differently. The qualified contributions you make to them reduce your taxable income, giving you an upfront tax break. When you withdraw them and their dividends and gains in retirement, that becomes taxable income. Learn more at www.fool.com/retirement.Want more information about stocks?

Thats OK, though, because theres a very effective way to invest long-term dollars thats easy, too: index funds. Index funds have long outperformed professional money managers in large part due to the fees managers charge. So instead of investing in actively managed mutual funds that lose to the market, you can choose to roughly match the market average. Invest your long-term money in index funds designed to track the performance of a broad market index, such as the S&P 500 or the Dow Jones Wilshire 5000. The S&P 500 is an index of 500 leading companies in America, and you can invest in it through many funds, such as the Vanguard 500 Index (VFINX) or the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY).

Its going to be a designer showroom, Paul Vann said. Thats what were trying to work towards and well use this [existing building] more as a stocking outlet. Tom Eagle, a commercial broker with the Daniel Crapps Agency, recently sold the building to the Vann brothers. Wolfson Childrens Speciality has leased upstairs space in the building for about five years, Eagle said, and has about two more years on its lease. The sale was closed March 29 and recorded April 5. We owned the building about eight or 10 years, Eagle said. We couldnt lease it out, hardly at all, so we had the whole downstairs redone. Eagle said the building was offered to brothers Marc Vann and Paul Vann for $950,000. According to Columbia County Property Appraiser records, the Daniel Crapps agency paid $950,000 in 2006 for the property based on a warranty deed, which included the bank and four other parcels. In 2008, the sale of the parcels were recorded again, this time including three parcels, one being the bank building for $1.6 million. The building, which was built as the State Exchange Bank in 1966, is approximately 22,000 square feet, has three stories on approximately a 1.5-acre tract of property with 77 paved parking spaces. Eagle said the building was first offered to Columbia County and they didnt do anything with the offer. Its a great building. Its not really an office building, it was just a big commercial building for all kind of uses, Eagle said. We used it for offices and the bank. Im happy for the Vanns. Theyre going to get a bigger presence and have a display room like nothing in Lake City. With the new building, coupled with the current site, Vann Carpet One looks to have one of the larger showrooms in the area. We would think we would have one of, it not, the largest selections in North Central Florida when we get through with the new store, Marc Vann said. Marc Vann said purchasing the old bank building gives them a continued presence in the downtown area where the business has been located since it started July 5, 1947. The opportunity arose to purchase that building and be able to retain our business downtown and be a part of the revitalization that is taking place. We just felt like its a great opportunity to keep our roots where they started which is in downtown Lake City. We are thrilled with the idea that a building came available that we feel like could help our business, while helping the community, and absolutely help the changes that are taking place downtown. Adding a new building to the Vann Carpet One business, near its current store location, may also help the company logistically. We just felt like this was an opportunity to improve our business by moving over there, Marc Vann said. Its still in such close proximity to our existing business that were still going to be able to offer all opportunities to offer everything that our existing building offers today. Marc Vann said the receiving warehouse, installation crews and everything the business has offered for years downtown, wont have to be changed while they expand their ability to show people more types of items in the new building. That building has really given us the opportunity to really increase the product lines, accessories and other items that were hoping well be able to expand into to offer our customers, he said.

LIFE Lake City Reporterwww.lakecityreporter.comSunday, April 15, 2018Section D Story ideas? Contact Editor Robert Bridges754-0428rbridges@lakecityreporter.com A look at the lives of working girls in Alaska way back whenDuring our Alaskan cruise a few years ago, while in Skagway, we were booked on an awesome excursion; a helicopter ride to a camp for dog sledding on a glacier. However, when we arrived on the pier they announced that the excursion had been canceled due to the weather. Apparently, the cloud cover was so bad on the glacier, the helicopter pilot could not see the camp to land. The wind had picked up significantly as well. They gave us an option for a different scenic tour, but none of us wanted to do the opportunity for dog sledding is why we booked. So, we all received a full refund for the excursion and went back to the cruise ship to take off all of the layers of clothing we had just put on. We decided to meet back in town at the Red Onion Saloon. They were packed and we could not get a table or seats at the bar. We did, however, purchase tickets to do the next brothel tour upstairs. We had an hour before the next tour, so the guys headed to the first bar they could find, Bonanza Bar & Grill. The girls headed to the first jewelry store we could find. Met a very nice salesman from Ohio and made some wish lists. After visiting a couple more stores, we ended up in the Bonanza at the bar. Between the four of us we tried the Alaskan Summer Ale, a Dancing Bear, a specialty drink, and a margarita. Finally, it was time to head back into the Red Onion for the tour. We were greeted by Madam Anywhichaway! LOL! They had some of the working girls rooms preserved, right down to the wallpaper and the very small beds. The system they used to book the girls was unique. They had dolls that looked like replicas of the working girls and when a gentleman was interested, the bartender would lay the doll down, indicating she was busy. The man would go upstairs for his 15 minutes. When the bartender heard the girl drop the money (Gold Nuggets back then) into the copper tubes that went into the safe behind the bar, hed stand her doll back up. But the worst part was their actual pay. That fifteen minutes only cost the man $5. The madam received 50 percent; the bodyguard who took the men upstairs got 25 percent, so that means each girl only received $1.25 for her 15 minutes of work. So, youd think that with our refund from the helicopter/dog sledding tour that we saved a little money. Not so in my case. After the brother tour, I ended up back in the jewelry store where I finally pulled the trigger and purchased a yellow diamond ring that I had been wanting forever. What a great souvenir better than a T-shirt! Sandy Kishton is a freelance travel writer who lives in Lake City. TRAVEL TALES Sandy Kishton Horses helping kids By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comThe horses know, said Katherine King. Kings an ESE equestrian coach at Lake City Christian Academy and she was referring to the two specially trained therapy horses that LCCA students in the schools exceptional student education program work with. Our program is unique in the sense they can compete in competitions. It gives them the chance to be a normal equestrian, they dont know they have the disability when theyre on the horse, she said. Her class recently competed in the Special Olympics held in February in Gainesville. We just finished the state, King said. It was only the second year in the schools history the program had participated. She said the competitions helped the students. It immersed them in the experience. They do what we call speed events, categories like barrels and poles, and trail obstacles, King said. The events were very technical though the kids are capable of competing. King, 27, has been with the local academy a little over a year and despite her age, has an extensive history in the therapeutic dressage combo. Its always been a passion, she said. From Live Oak, she said she started out in 4H acquainting kids with horses. At LCCA she calls herself the barn manager and said she also teaches the Special Olympics program. Before her time at the school she worked with injured soldiers through the Wounded Warriors Project. It was a big transition from going to Wounded Warriors ... to kids, King said. It was a good transition. Since she started she said shes always used horses in her therapy. Its hard to explain, King said. They know. Its important they do too when the child riding them could seize at any moment, which King says happens with students suffering from a range of disorders. Theyre a very special horse to be able to do that program, she said. Most of the LCCA kids in her classes have varying degrees of autism and learning disorders, while others had traumatic brain injuries. None of the kids are told no unless they physicially cant do it, King said. The schools website shows it is part of PATH International, or the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International. They participate at other venues outside the Special Olympics, King said, like the Columbia County Riding Clubs All Stars event and at the Florida Sheriffs Youth Boys Ranch Open House and Horse Show. Equestrian therapy plays a big role for some students at local private school.Photos by COREY ARWOOD/Lake City ReporterTOP: Katherine King puts a bridle on Zoe while Bobbie waits to ride.

Avoid discussions that have the potential to turn into an argument. It is better to keep the peace, listen and digest whats being said, and consider how best to respond when ready. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your temper may take over if someone does something you dont like. Try using diplomacy before you engage in brute force or threats. If you push someone, he or she will push back. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Make suggestions, but dont let anyone drop responsibilities in your lap. Taking on too much will take its toll on you mentally, physically and financially. Offer only what you know you can and want to handle. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Refrain from getting into a dispute with someone you care about, or you will damage your relationship. Be willing to compromise or at least back away until you dont feel emotionally drained. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Dont let what others do or say get to you. Trust and believe in your ability to bring about the changes that suit you best. Let your creative imagination help you discover what you love and do best. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Youll be overruled by someone elses agenda if you dont speak up and make your position clear. Its OK to do things on your own if you stand to gain more by doing so. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Youll face adversity if you cannot come to terms with what someone wants from you or from your relationship. Make your position clear. If you are indecisive, nothing will change or be resolved. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Keeping your plans out in the open will help you avoid a problem when the time comes to move forward. Open discussions and finding solutions to any unforeseen problems will encourage success as well as help to keep the peace. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Get out and have some fun. Engage in something you find challenging but motivating. Deal with issues that concern youngsters or those who look to you for help. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Stick close to home and avoid conversations with people who dont see things the same way you do. Getting into a debate will only upset you when you should be more concerned with self-preservation and your personal comfort. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Youll face uncertainty regarding a joint endeavor. Listen to whats being offered and on the agenda before signing up for something likely to fall short of your expectations. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Step away from situations that are taxing or causing you anxiety. Make plans to do something with someone you love or to spend time relaxing, gathering your thoughts and taking care of your physical, emotional and mental needs. DEAR ABBY: My son, a junior in college, is trying to get a summer job. His degree is challenging, and he has a good work ethic plus job experience. Because he hasnt had much luck applying online, I have been calling local businesses to see whats available while hes working hard at school. A problem Im encountering is something I never had to deal with in my own job search. Its companies asking if he wants an internship. They say they cant pay him to train him. Can you explain the basis of this response? -WANTS TO KNOW IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR WANTS TO KNOW: The basis may be economic. The companies dont want to spend the money on an intern, particularly one who exhibits such little initiative that his mother has to call to inquire about a job for him. Keep in mind that some internships have been known to lead to permanent positions. Your son may have better luck if he places the calls himself. DEAR ABBY: What is proper when hosting guests from out of state? In a few months, two different relatives will be visiting me separately, each for two weeks. For years it has been my custom to go to church early on Sunday and then to brunch with friends. I dont mind giving up the brunch, but I dont want to miss church for an entire month. (Im a widow now and I enjoy the fellowship.) One relative is a non-churchgoer, and the other is a Jehovahs Witness. Neither will attend with me even though I invite them. (I tried that.) How do I handle this? -CHURCH OR NO CHURCH DEAR C. OR N.C.: Having houseguests does not mean you are shackled together the entire time they stay with you. Because you have tried that and your offer was rejected, they already know you like to attend church. Handle the situation by telling them you will be going to early services on Sunday and then to brunch with some of the church members afterward. If youre worried about feeding your houseguests, tell them there will be lox, bagels and cream cheese waiting in the fridge when they get up -something from almost every food group. DEAR ABBY: I have a slightly different version of a Pennies From Heaven letter for you. My darling grandmother would often tell my brother and me she had a Yankee dime for us -which meant a kiss. Not long after her death, I started finding shiny dimes in the strangest places -under birthday gifts, by the Christmas tree and in my kitchen (which is my happy place). My heart fills as the dimes continue to pile up. I save them all. If I had a penny for every Yankee dime I got while growing up, Id be very rich. -SUZANNE IN OCALA, FLA. DEAR SUZANNE: You ARE rich! You were blessed to have had a grandmother who loved you and your brother and demonstrated it every chance she got. What a wonderful legacy to leave behind.
