Jason James Neiheisel, 28, faces up to 40 years in federal prison and a potential life term of supervised release. The investigation began in April 2017 when a CCSO detective assigned to the North Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force discovered illicit videos and alerted the Task Force. The detective identified the host computer that was offering child pornography for distribution using a file-sharing network and uncovered evidence of numerous illegal videos, several of which depicted young children being sexually abused. The host computer was traced to Neiheisels home. On April 11, 2017, Task Force agents served a search warrant on Guilty verdict in child porn case initiated by CCSO Wanee Time STORY, 3A By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comBefore the weekend blurs into one long jam session of Southern and classic rock meet blues, Cajun, funk and reggae, a pre-party today will open the annual three-day, four-night Wanee Music Festival. Steeped in the sounds of local Florida legends, the Allman Brothers Band, and founded by its surviving members, the lineup of the Wanee Music Festival, its distinctive, aged 12-year blend of sounds, should come as no surprise. Its been running consecutively for almost a decade and a half and most in the surrounding area are familiar with the vibe. But the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Parks general manager, a 12-year Wanee veteran, said newcomers are showing their interest in numbers this year. A lot of people come from all over the country, a lot of first timers, said Teena Peavey. People started coming in on Saturday and Sunday. They were there a full week early setting up for the three days and four nights worth of music set for two stages full of performances, and all the festival trappings of food trucks, vendors, campfires, hammocks and more. She said they get in, get their hammock hung, enjoy the scenery at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park and Campground in Live Oak, home to the event. Quite a few people come in throughout the U.S., they make this an annual event, she said. In the absence of the Allmans, with Gregg Allmans death last year, she said other anchor bands have stepped onto the main stage. COURTESY PHOTOSTOP, ABOVE, LEFT: Scenes from Wanees past.

Two duos, five solo acts picked in finals.Barbara Bush, former first lady, dies at age 92By MICHAEL GRACZYKAssociated PressHOUSTON Barbara Bush, the snowy-haired first lady whose plainspoken manner and utter lack of pretense made her more popular at times than her husband, President George H.W. Bush, died Tuesday. She was 92. Family spokesman Jim McGrath confirmed the death in a statement. The cause wasnt immediately known. Mrs. Bush brought a grandmotherly style to buttoned-down Washington, often appearing in her trademark fake pearl chokers and displaying no vanity about her white hair and wrinkles. What you see with me is what you get. Im not running for president George Bush is, she said at the 1988 Republican National Convention, where her husband, then vice president, was nominated to succeed Ronald Reagan. The Bushes, who were married Jan. 6, 1945, had the longest marriage of any presidential couple in American history. And Mrs. Bush was one of only two first ladies who had a child who was elected president. The other was Abigail Adams, wife of John Adams and mother of John Quincy Adams. I had the best job in America, she wrote in a 1994 memoir describing her time in the White House. Every single day was interesting, rewarding, and sometimes just plain fun. The publishers daughter and oilmans wife could be caustic in private, but her public image was that of a self-sacrificing, supportive spouse who referred to her husband as her hero. In the White House, you need a friend, someone who loves you, whos going to say, You are great, Mrs. Bush said in a 1992 television interview. Her uncoiffed, matronly appearance often provoked jokes that she looked more like the boyish presidents mother than his wife. Late-night comedians quipped that her bright white hair and pale features also imparted a resemblance to George Washington. Eight years after leaving the nations capital, Mrs. Bush stood with her husband as their son George W. was sworn in as president. They returned four years later when he won a second term. Unlike Mrs. Bush, Abigail Adams did not live to see her sons inauguration. She died in 1818, six years before John Quincy Adams was elected. Mrs. Bush insisted she did not try to influence her husbands politics. I dont fool around with his office, she said, and he doesnt fool around with my household. In 1984, her quick wit got her into trouble when she was quoted as referring to Geraldine Ferraro, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, as that $4 million I cant say it, but it rhymes with rich. It was dumb of me. I shouldnt have said it, Mrs. Bush acknowledged in 1988. It was not attractive, and Ive been very shamed. I apologized to Mrs. Ferraro, and I would apologize again. Daughter-in-law Laura Bush, wife of the 43rd president, said Mrs. Bush was ferociously tart-tongued. Shes never shied away from saying what she thinks. ... Shes managed to insult nearly all of my friends with one or another perfectly timed acerbic comment, Laura Bush wrote in her 2010 book, Spoken from the Heart. In her 1994 autobiography, Barbara Bush: A Memoir, Mrs. Bush said she did her best to keep her opinions from the public while her husband was in office. U.S. Rep. Neal Dunn expressed his condolences late Tuesday. Former First Lady Barbara Bush said the most important things in life were faith, family, and friends, he said in a prepared statement. She embodied all that and more. She was smart, tough, sincerely patriotic, a wonderful mother, and always the classiest person in the room. Our faith renews us and reassures us that she will live on in the hearts of all who knew her and that we will all meet again on the other side of this mortal life. May she rest in peace. Barbara Bush

WANEEContinued From 1A By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comFive foals, Ruger, Axle, Snickerdoodle, Butterscotch and Prissy, were lying on a sunny stretch of pasture at their new home on the dozens of acres of farmland found at a Lake City private school. Ranging from three days to two weeks old when rescued, the foals fate would have been much darker had the schools principal and founder, Tana Norris, not adopted them en masse from a rescue operation out of Ohio. These horses up here are called throwaway foals and theyre bred to be killed, said Norris. Its another name for what is called in the horse breeding industry a nurse mare foal. The horses are the byproduct of breeders who use a nurse mare to care for the foal of a thoroughbred mare while she is readied to be bred again Their goal is to produce more than one thoroughbred in a year. The nurse mare is impregnated with the nurse mare foal, or throwaway, to jump start its hormones for the maternal processes and milk production needed to care for the thoroughbred foal. The original foal is then killed, and according to the advocacy group where Norris got the five foals, can be sold for meat, skin or simply discarded. The five foals are now new additions to the schools bevy of farm animals. Norris rolled one of the lazing horses over, and helped it to its hooves for a photo shoot while on a recent tour of Lake City Christian Academys horse therapy program. The designation, throwaway foal, though, doesnt mean theres something wrong with the newborn horses. The opposite might be the case given they were bred in one of the disputed horse capitols of the world. What they do is they kill them, they breed their mothers and theyre on these big thoroughbred farms, thorough-breeding with a million dollar mare, Norris said. Well they dont want her taking care of her babies because they want to rebreed her. So they breed these other mares and when the thoroughbred mare has her baby they take that baby and they kill it. She said she learned of the practice from a friend who worked with an organization that rescues them from what it alleges are certain death sentences on breeding farms in neighboring Kentucky, where the equine industry booms. The Last Chance Corral reports on its website saving upwards of 150-200 foals a year from the controversial, and little known selective breeding practice. These wouldve been dead if I hadnt have saved them, Norris said motioning to the foals now standing and alert. I have a friend who saves as many as she can and adopts them out, Norris said. It just breaks my heart, thinking what they wouldve done to them. Norris said there were 11 total where the five she now has came from, and even those werent a planned acquisition. Theyll be a lot of work without the maternal socialization, she said. We have to teach them how to be a horse. Theyre looking at us as their parent. A mare you know disciplines their child, they teach them stuff, simply like getting out of the sun. She said so far they have been taught to halt and to lead. Norris is a state certified instructor with the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International. Her school has an extensive equine program, as well as horse therapy program. She has a lifelong history with horses. My dad bought me a pony when i was three years old and Ive loved them ever since, Norris said. She said she wanted to bring attention to the foals plight and to the organization working to save them. Nurse mare foals, their duty done, would have been killed. COREY ARWOOD/Lake City ReporterTana Norris said the five horses would stay at the school while they were being raised and trained and later they might be adopted out.More information on Last Chance Corral can be found at its website, www.last chancecorral.org. Neiheisels Jacksonville apartment securing evidence and a confession. Neiheisel was arrested on May 4, 2017. The case is part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by United States Attorneys Offices and the Criminal Divisions Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals, who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue vic tims. The Columbia County Sheriffs Office currently has detectives that are assigned to Task Forces that partner with the FBI, DEA, ATF, U.S. Marshals Service and the U.S. Secret Service. Im proud of the tremendous steps our Sheriffs Office has taken to keep our community safe, said Sheriff Mark Hunter. Partnering with federal, state and other local agencies allows us to multiply our force and resources doing more with less. CCSOContinued From 1A Monkey on the run after stormBy CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comA monkey is on the lam in a Lake City neighborhood, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Two snow macaques and two capuchin monkeys escaped from their enclosure at a home on Southwest Steedley Drive during a storm at 5:45 p.m. Sunday, said FWC spokesperson Karen Parker. FWC officers found three of the primates within a matter of hours, but a snow macaque still remains at large. Were working with the owner to address the situation, Parker said. The runaway macaque was last spotted 11:30 p.m. Monday in a backyard on Steedley Drive. A trap is in place to capture the monkey. Anyone who sees the macaque should avoid approaching it and call FWCs wildlife alert number at 888-404-3922, Parker said. The owner has all necessary permits and passed an inspection in March with no violations, Parker said.

On Monday justices of the U.S. Supreme Court flicked off the latest appeal from Rod Blagojevich much as they flick lint from black robes. No need to explain why the elaborate arguments from his lawyers went kerflop. No cause to reconsider the litany of felony convictions, the 14-year sentence, nothing. Next case? For judges back in Illinois, of course, the next case is never far away. Corrupt politicians have made sport of cheating this states 12 million citizens, and the season never ends. Four of Illinois last 10 governors have wound up in federal prisons. With the Supreme Court serially unmoved by Blagojevichs appeals, the unknown now is whether judges here always will remember the example of U.S. District Judge James Zagel when they sentence the next crooked pols, and the next. Theres always a cohort of deniers betting that what happened to Blagojevich wont happen to them. This states politicians, and the judges wholl likely see some of them in court, never should forget the political corruption tutorial Zagel delivered in December 2011. He first spoke in generalities about the need for tougher penalties to discourage corruption here. Then he handed 14 years to a man whose privileged life had taken him from Northwestern University to Pepperdine Law, to a job as a Cook County prosecutor, to the Illinois General Assembly, to the United States Congress, to the governorship of Illinois. That man today is imprisoned in Colorado, scheduled for release in 2024. Zagel explained why Blagojevichs crimes were so destructive, why corruption is a more serious crime than judges in Illinois had previously treated it. He essentially told other judges that prosecutors and courageous jurors can do only so much, that courts must stiffen corruption penalties. The harm in these cases, Zagel said, isnt measured in the value of money or property. The harm is the erosion of public trust in government. When a governor goes bad, he damages a system that relies on the willing participation of its citizens. You, Zagel said, looking at Blagojevich, did that damage. More than six years later, Zagels most important lesson for the political class of Illinois stands unrefuted: If citizens place their trust in you, then you can ruin your life and victimize your loved ones just as this criminal freely chose to do to his. That warning is our focus today, as it was on the day of sentencing: Corruption doesnt just happen; people who may have fine attributes, impressive resumes and substantial accomplishments make it happen. Exemplary fathers and mothers, career professionals, officials who have done many good things for the people they serve these otherwise upstanding folks, not just thieving mopes, drive the Illinois culture of political sleaze. Often, Zagel said, these perps may think their many good deeds more than offset their crimes. Not so. Zagel acknowledged that, yes, as governor Blagojevich had acted for the good of others: Every governor, even our worst, helps someone. ... Very few criminals are all bad. ... I am more concerned with the occasions when you wanted to use your powers to do things that were only good for yourself. None of us ever will know how many exemplary people were cheated out of careers in government, or how many employers lost chances at state contracts because, during the Blagojevich years, the fix was in. His crowning betrayal: He tried to sell a U.S. Senate seat that belonged to the people of Illinois. In writing about Blagojevich, weve acknowledged that we arent uninvolved parties. U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgeralds sentencing memorandum to Judge Zagel noted that Blagojevichs offenses included demanding the firing of the Chicago Tribune Editorial Board members in exchange for assistance to the Tribune Company for financing in relation to the sale of Wrigley Field. Lawyers for Blagojevich and other defendants can argue ad infinitum about when political conduct becomes criminal conduct. But on Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court again made clear that public service doesnt mean self-service. We hope all judges remember this when they sentence corrupt public servants. Just as we hope Illinois pols remember the fate of a man much like themselves. He used to be Gov. Rod Blagojevich.One of the smartest things my father taught me, thus far, is that its often hard to tell if someone is truly stupid. You dont always know how many cards theyre showing, he says. Not that you want to judge anyone, but somebody who seems to be spouting nonsense might actually have something to say, if you listen a little more closely. You can learn a lot that way. Its been a good lesson for me. The flip side is that its all too easy to overestimate other folks, to waste time wondering if theres something beneath the surface when clearly there isnt. Take the flat-earthers, for instance people who claim the Earth is a disc and not a sphere. These guys are enjoying a renaissance of late, especially with high-profile adherents like NBA star Kyrie Irving who routinely flies around the globe on a jet popping off on social media about how he was misled as a schoolboy. (Though Im sure they dont teach flat-earthism at Duke, where he played college ball.) My first reaction was that its a publicity stunt of some kind, because what else could it be? Better yet, a sarcastic inside joke by a superstar athlete getting back at media jackals who hang on his every word, whether on hoops or whatever. That last one makes the most sense maybe. What about the flat-earthers who arent famous? Its a good bit harder to make sense of them. Some may actually believe that every picture ever taken of the Earth was faked and that globe makers are part of a vast conspiracy as well. And thats where we hit a wall. Conspiracy is to our age what religious faith was to a prior one, regrettably. You cant argue with true believers. However odd the claim, it soon becomes an article of faith, wrenched from the realm of logic and reason. Yet the mental gymnastics needed to preserve the internal consistency of such a vision require a good deal of cerebral horsepower in its own right. So you cant just call them stupid, either. If you look at almost anything long enough you can probably figure out a way to imagine how it makes sense to someone else. Or at least why they think it does. But somebody has to be stupid, if the word is to have any meaning. Enter now the Tide Pod-eaters and the condom snorters of internet fame. You could probably see the world through their eyes, if you tried hard enough. The question is, why would anyone want to?

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINIONDowntown renaissanceDowntown Lake City is on a tear. We have one craft brewery, with another on the way; the esteemed Marion Street Cafe; Sals, a nice Italian restaurant with, among other things, the best fudge in town; and, soon enough, a refurbished Blanche Hotel. We didnt support this project, but now that the papers have been signed, we obviously want it to work. Lake Citys financial well being depends on it. Now theres a new player on the downtown stage: Vann Carpet One, which just purchased the old State Exchange Bank building on Madison Street. Bucking a national trend, retail is returning to downtown Lake City. This is a big one. We see Vanns as a potential catalyst that will draw other major players downtown as well. Its good to see. And it makes us especially glad that city officials backed away from their plan to house City Hall at the Blanche, opting for mixed-use retail instead. We will be watching the progress of all these projects, especially the Blanche, with great interest. Big things lie ahead for Lake City.

6A WEDNESD AY, APRIL 18, 2018 HEALTH LAKE CITY REPORTER Some of you are eating like a bird, and still struggling to lose weight. It dawned on me recently that medications may be at the heart of this. As a pharmacist, Ive seen it time and time again. Someone comes in looking fit and great, and 6 months later they have 30 pounds on them, and it is out of character, meaning, theyve been thin all their life. Its because medications impact your fat-burning switch, or sometimes they shut down your thyroid hormone. Depending on the medication, it might impact serotonin or probiotic status. Counting calories wont matter. This article will shed light on why your getting heavier and heavier, even though you may be exercising or eating a diet that should keep you slim. It might relieve some of the guilt you feel for being overweight, and perhaps spark a conversation with your physician about what other treatment options you have. Now, I will list the categories of medications that can impact your metabolism. In no particular order: Estrogen-containing hormones This category includes oral contraceptives as well as HRT, hormone replacement therapy. Its partly because high levels of estrogen cause insulin resistance, and make it harder for you to break down glucose. Your fat cells expand to four times their size. These fake estrogens, as well as pesticides which are also estrogenic, cause a relatively lower amount of testosterone which is needed for lean muscles. Allergy Medication This category is big and includes fexofenadine (Allegra), cetirizine (Zyrtec), loratadine (Claritin), diphenhydramine (Benadryl) and others. The reduction in histamine that these medication cause will also cause an increase in appetite, and therefore weight gain. This doesnt occur from a week or two of usage, but more likely with chronic usage (> 3 months). A 2010 study found that people taking prescription doses of Allegra and Zyrtec were about 55% more likely to be heavy than those not taking antihistamines. At the end of the day, blocking histamine can interfere with a naturally produced enzyme in your brain that helps control appetite. If you can improve your overall immune function, and minimize dander, pollen and food sensitivities, you might be able to get by without taking antihistamines which cause undesired weight gain. Antidepressants For this class, Im referring to a lot of different medications. Among them, fluoxetine (Prozac), sertraline (Zoloft), paroxetine (Paxil), venlafaxine (Effexor) and mirtazapine (Remeron). The reaction varies, so in some of you, these drugs can cause weight loss during the first few months. However, its often short-lived as many users of antidepressants develop a voracious appetite (especially for carbs) after the initial weight-loss effect. It is certainly bizarre because a rise in serotonin (which occurs with these drugs) is usually associated with appetite suppression and yet, you see dramatic weight gain in people who use antidepressants for more than a year. I think it has to do with a rise in TNF alpha, which was shown in 2000, in an article in Neuropsychopharmacology. Its probably not from leptin, your feel-full hormone, which remains unaltered with both paroxetine and venlafaxine. Steroids Hydrocortisone, prednisone and methylprednisone are part of this category and they are popular medications. These corticosteroids are taken by mouth, unlike some of the ones you inhale for the treatment of asthma, so as a result, the oral medications cause more dramatic weight gain. In 2006, a survey showed that about 70% of steroid users gained weight despite trying to exercise and diet. These drugs impact your gut in a tremendous way, and smash levels of intestinal flora (what you think of as probiotics). Blood Pressure Medications This category is not cut and dry. One class of antihypertensives medications that induces weight gain is the (beta) blockers, medications such as metoprolol or propranolol. There are others. The medications are useful for lowering blood pressure and treating heart failure, arrhythmias or coronary artery disease. They dilate the blood vessels (reducing pressure inside of them). Those cause significant weight gain. Some blockers are a little bit more selective in terms of their focus and as a result, they dont cause quite as much weight gain, though the potential exists. These include carvedilol (Coreg) or nebivolol (Bystolic). There was a study that actually compared metoprolol to carvedilol (two popular drugs that go head to head marketing-wise). Anyway, about 4.5% of those in the metoprolol group gained greater than 7% of their body weight, whereas about 1% of those taking carvedilol did. So if weight gain is a problem, consider that drug as an option. There are some antihypertensives that cause weight loss, such as diuretics and this occurs due to the reduction in fluid (blood) volume. ACE inhibitors and ARBs are two other categories of antihypertensive drugs that occasionally lead to weight gain. The determining factor here is the exact medication youre on, and the type of diet you continue to lead. I know two men who started antihypertensive medication therapy in 2017. One of the guys maintains his slim, fit frame because he is diligent about working out and eating a lot of salads and veggies (plus lean protein). The other man continues to eat a lot of pizza, hamburgers and other junk food and hes not only looking more portly in the waist, but his physician has increased his medication dose twice. They just put him on a second antihypertensive medication too. When I politely poked him and suggested dietary changes to control blood pressure, instead of more fattening foods, and thus, more fat-promoting medications, he said Ack, whatever Suzy Im indestructible you know and I wanna eat what I want! Hes already suffered a near death experience with a heart attack. The challenge that comes from this type of indestructable thinking leads to relationship problems. I know his wife and she secretly finds him more unattractive than ever. Antipsychotics It would be amazing if we could get to the root of all mental health problems and fix the root cause. Unfortunately, its difficult. In America, we live in a day and age where psychoactive drugs are the quick fix for anything going on upstairs. These drugs come with a hefty price tag, deepening on the type. The Solution The solution is to avoid the use of these types of medication unless absolutely necessary. I am a believer in holistic, herbal, alternative and dietary solutions all should be tried (with true commitment) before implementing medications. I know the commercials on TV make it look so easy, but its not really. Rethink your choices before saying yes to a prescription. When you take medications, you impact hundreds of metabolic pathways in a profound (and sometimes irreversible) way. Obviously, if you take these medications, please do commit to a healthy exercise regimen and continue on a clean low fat, low carb diet. But hopefully reading this will give you some peace and the realization that its not your fault, and that another medication might exist that isnt associated with as much weight gain. Its a good conversation to have with your doctor.Is medicine making you gain weight?DEAR PHARMACIST Suzy Coheninfo@dearpharmacist.com www.SuzyCohen.com Suzy Cohen is a pharmacist who got her start in Gainesville.

But Columbias advantage didnt last long as Baker County answered with four more runs in the fifth Tuesday night. Columbia pinch hitter Sammy Walker cut the deficit to one run on a clutch single in the seventh, yet his heroics werent enough to avoid a 6-5 loss to Baker County. Sophomore pitcher Mikah Gustavson got the start on the hill. He managed to shake off a two-run opening inning, retiring the next eight of ten batters faced. He was later replaced by reliever Logan Sikes after his strong outing unraveled in the fifth. He settled in, Columbia coach Brian Thomas said of Gustavson, who finished with three strikeouts.

The visitors scored in four straight innings and Florida could never catch them, stranding 13 runners on base in the game. Wil Dalton opened the scoring with his team-leading 13th home run of the season, a solo shot over the bleachers in left field. The Gators added a run in the third after loading the bases with three walks in the inning. Jonathan Indias grounder scored Bell from third to make it 2-0. Jacksonville rallied in the fourth to take a onerun lead on four singles. A groundout to first from Jacob Southern brought in a run to give the Dolphins a 3-2 lead. Florida tied the game in the bottom of the inning. JJ Schwarz doubled to lead off the inning and scored on a RBI grounder from Blake Reese to make it 3-3. The Dolphins retook the lead in the top of the fifth. Evan Fernandez hit a solo home run to left and a RBI single from John Cassala gave JU a 5-3 lead. Florida got a run back in the bottom of the inning on Indias RBI double but JU once again extended the lead in the sixth, plating a run on a called balk with a runner at third base. The Dolphins pushed the lead to four in the seventh inning on a two-run shot from John Cassala to make it 8-4.

That test was passed with flying colors Tuesday night. The Class 7A No. 6 Lady Tigers scored six runs in each of the first two innings and rolled to a 12-1 mercy-run win over the Class 2A No. 2 Warriors in five innings at home. Morgan Hoyle and Dara Gaylard both drove in three runs behind a two-hitter from pitcher CrisDeona Beasley. Gaylard accounted for two of those runs with a homer over the left field wall in the second inning, her fifth dinger of the season. Columbia (19-3) sent 23 batters to the plate in the first two innings to cruise to its 10th straight victory. This is the best weve played. Were on a 10-game win streak and its great, Gaylard said. Weve never beaten Aucilla by that much in all three years Ive played here. It feels great. Aucilla Christian starting pitcher Elizabeth Hightower only lasted twothirds of an inning, quickly loading the bases before things get out of hand. Story Giebeig scored the first run when her younger sister Lucy drew a walk and Caroline Lewis scored another when Beasley struck out but reached first base on a passed ball. Morgan Hoyle followed with a two-RBI double to push the lead to 4-0 and Columbia outfielder Dara Gaylard hit a two-run home run against Aucilla Christian in the second inning Tuesday night. Columbia scores 12 runs in the first two innings to win 10th in a row.Photos by BRENT KUYKENDALL/Lake City ReporterColumbia outfielder Caroline Lewis heads into third base on Story Giebeigs single during the first inning against Aucilla Christian.

Atlantic Coast captured the title while Lee placed second. Tanner Thomas and Cole Wehrli were both defeated in the singles district final. Christian Chiong and Thomas were defeated in the district semifinals while Wehrli and Jacob Zecher won their match. Wehrli and Zecher, however, fell in the final which ended their season. Columbia finishes the year third out of eight district teams.Indians drop critical district matchupFort White baseball lost to Santa Fe 5-2 on the road Tuesday night. The loss drops the Indians (10-9, 5-6) into a three-way tie for fourth in District 5-5A while the Raiders (11-10, 8-4) are guaranteed no worse than the No. 2 seed in the district tournament in two weeks. Fort White, Keystone Heights and Bradford all now share the same district record while Newberry is 6-5 and P.K. Yonge is 5-4. Palatka finished its district campaign 4-8. Fort White hosts Bradford on Thursday at 7 p.m.Lady Indians fallFort White lost to West Port 14-8 on the road Tuesday night. Raven Miles led the Lady Indians (11-9) with four RBI. Jaime Tolkkinen, Jennifer Allen and Savana Terry all had one RBI apiece.NBA PLAYOFFS bring Hightowers night near an end. Hightower continued to struggle finding the plate and was eventually pulled during the next at-bat after throwing a couple of balls to Sofia Arata. Abigail Morgan took over on the mound, finished the walk to Arata and then surrendered a two-RBI double to Lauren Hutcherson to put Columbia up 6-0. I think we laid off, we were very disciplined and that makes a difference, Columbia coach Trudy Andrews said Were not chasing bad pitches, were being patient, were waiting for the pitcher to bring them to us and that makes a huge difference. Giebeig led off the bottom of the second with a single and Gaylard followed with her two-run bomb to extend the lead further. Columbia loaded the bases again on singles by Beasley and Lucy Giebeig and a walk by S.K. Lewis. Beasley scored on Hoyles RBI ground out, and after Arata drew another walk to load the bases a second time, Giebeig scored when Hutcherson reached safely on an error. Story Giebeig and Gaylard then drew back-to-back bases-loaded walks to put Columbia 12-0. The Lady Tigers drew nine total walks on the night. Giebeig finished 2 for 2 with two singles, two walks and two runs scored. Theres a lot of confidence in the box and thats what weve worked on all season, to be selective and be patient and wait for your pitch, Andrews said. Beasley was perfect on the mound through the first three innings. She only ran into a little trouble in the fourth when the Warriors loaded the bases on a single, a walk and an error, which led to Ashlyn Rogers sac fly for an unearned run. The junior finished with six strikeouts and her only other blemish was an error in the fifth. Columbia ends the regular season Thursday at Atlantic Coast. Tuesdays victory extended the programs longest winning streak since 2014, when it started 16-0. This team when I got here was young and theyve matured as players, Andrews said. Theyve matured as players, they work hard, they play travel ball, they work hard in practice here with us and then play hard in games, so theyve matured. All around theyre gelling, theyre meshing, theyre playing for each other and are being selfless players. Theyre not selfish in any way.

Mark Scheifele scored both goals for Winnipeg and Connor Hellebuyck made 30 saves for his seventh shutout this season, as the Jets beat the Minnesota Wild 2-0 on Tuesday night to take a 3-1 lead in the first-round playoff series. Scheifele scored with 28 seconds left in the first period and tacked on an empty-netter with 11 seconds remaining, pushing the Wild to the brink of elimination. Now the series shifts back to Winnipeg, with Game 5 on Friday night. spot up, which some pressure on them. And all of a sudden the pressure is off (us), you can see him like hey, now I can start doing my thing. He got a lot of guys to swing in miss, some ground balls, fly balls. It was just a mistake here and there. Columbia (9-10) found itself in trouble when Baker County (14-6) opened the fifth with backto-back hits. The Wildcats regained their early lead when Clayt Smith went yard on the ensuing at-bat flipping momentum from the Tigers. It was big, Baker County coach Jarrell Rodgers said of the left field shot. When hes at the plate, hes a special kid, you never know what can happen. He came up with a big at-bat to get us back in the ballgame. After another run scored in the same frame, the Tigers entered the seventh trailing by two. Columbia centerfielder Clayton Steinruck came through with a two-out triple to spark the rally. The senior was driven in on Walkers blooper. Columbia, though, ended the non-district contest with the tying run on first as the Tigers suffered their second loss in five days. Theres an age old saying in sports, and it applies to baseball: Id rather be a good team playing not so good baseball than a bad team playing great baseball, Thomas said. Were a good team, were playing well. Contact, stellar pitching, Gus made a couple mistakes.. I think that (Smith) kid is hitting over .400. Hes been killing it all year long, and you cant make that mistake to him but thats OK. Despite losing their last three of four games, Thomas wants his team to continue to stay focused and improve with only four regular season games remaining. The Tigers face another strong opponent in Ridgeview on the road Thursday afternoon. We just got to keep fighting. TIGERS Continued From 1B

LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER ADVICE & COMICS WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18, 2018 3B DEAR ABBY: Six years ago, my husband of 20 years was in a serious accident. He was placed on disability because of it. Because of the accident, he cant perform sexually because his goods dont work. I am many years younger than he is and still in my prime. I need and want the cuddling and intimacy Im not getting and havent gotten for years. I have thought about finding a friend with benefits, but thats risky. I cant talk to him because he flips out and says, Then leave! I feel our marriage has become just a living arrangement. Talking to a counselor or a doctor is out because he will refuse. Please help. -LOST AND LONELY DEAR LOST AND LONELY: Your marriage doesnt have to be just a living arrangement. Although sex may no lon ger be possible with your husband, ther es no reason why there cant be cuddling, intimacy and affection. Talking to a licensed mar riage and family therapist will be helpful for you, whether or not your husband agrees to go with you. DEAR ABBY : My wife, Cheryl, and I have been married for 47 years. We are both over 70 and retired. Cheryl is a wonderful mother, grandmother, cook and mor e. We love to travel, dance, go to movies and play with our grandchildren. The issue is, shes ver y picky with the housekeeping and refuses to hire any help because she says nobody can do the job she does. I feel its af fecting our marriage because after she spends a full day once a week cleaning, she ends up exhausted and in a bad mood. I also feel guilty while shes doing all that work. I dont think either one of us should have to do it. We are well-off and can easily pay someone to come for a full day of cleaning once a week. I keep telling her to no avail, that she cant keep doing it forever. I welcome your suggestions. -NEEDING HELP IN TEXAS DEAR NEEDING HELP: Cheryl may think what shes doing is being a good old-fashioned housewife. Enlighten her to the fact that you feel her compulsiveness is detrimental to your mar riage. Try this: Tell her again you want her to give a housekeeper a chance. Repeat that you can afford it. Explain that if shes not satisfied after the person has cleaned, you wont argue if she puts the finishing touches on what the cleaner may have missed. If you hire someone efficient, there wont be a lot left for her to do, and she wont be exhausted. DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend, Troy, takes it as a personal of fense that I wont share a hotel room with him and his younger son (age 15) when we go out of town to see his older son play college sports. I am extremely uncomfortable sharing the same hotel r oom, and Troy refuses to get separate rooms. Do you agree that Im unreasonable? -- BAD SPORT IN OHIO DEAR BAD SPORT: No, I do not. You should not be talked into doing anything that makes you uncomfortable, so stick to your guns.

The Consent Order addresses the unauthorized discharges to ground and/or surface waters at the City of Lake City collection system on and around September 11, 2017, due to Hurricane Irma and the resulting weather events. The Consent Order is available for public inspection during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the Department of Environmental Protection, 8800 Baymeadows Way West, Suite 100, Jacksonville Florida, 32256. Persons who are not parties to this Consent Order, but whose substantial interests are affected by it, have right to petition for an administrative hearing under sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition concerning this Consent Order means that the Departments final action may be different from the position it has taken in the Consent Order. The petition for administrative hearing must contain all of the following information: a) The OGC Number assigned to this Consent Order; b) The name, address, and telephone number of each petitioner; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioners representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; c) An explanation of how the petitioners substantial interests will be affected by the Consent Order; d) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the Consent Order; e) Either a statement of all material facts disputed by the petitioner or a statement that the petitioner does not dispute any material facts; f) A statement of the specific facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the Consent Order; g) A statement of the rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the Consent Order; and h) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes the Department to take with respect to the Consent Order. The petition must be filed (received) at the Departments Office of General Counsel, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, MS# 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000 within 21 days of receipt of this notice. A copy of the petition must also be mailed at the time of filing to the District Office at Northeast District, 8800 Baymeadows Way West, Suite 100, Jacksonville, Florida 32256. Failure to file a petition within the 21-day period constitutes a persons waiver of the right to request an administrative hearing and to participate as a party to this proceeding under sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Before the deadline for filing a petition, a person whose substantial interest are affected by this Consent Order may choose to pursue mediation as an alternative remedy under section 120.573, Florida Statutes. Choosing mediation will not adversely affect such a persons right to request an administrative hearing if mediation does not result in a settlement.
