Two members of the Gilchrist County Sheriffs Office had been murdered. In tears, he picked up his phone and dialed, anxious to speak his mind. Can you please do something else? Are you sure this is what you want to do? the father asked, fear in his voice. Dad, somebody has to do it, the son said. I want to help make a difference. The response made McConnell both worried and proud. Just a few weeks prior, the two slain deputies, Sgt. Noel Ramirez, 29, and Deputy Taylor Lindsey, 25, visited Santa Fe College to recruit soon-to-be-graduates from the law enforcement program there. McConnells son, Jairus, graduates in May. Ramirez and Lindsey were sitting down for lunch around 3 p.m. at the Ace China restaurant in Trenton when 59-year-old John Hubert Highnote of Bell fired two shots from inside the restaurant, striking both deputies in the head.CARL MCKINNEY/Lake City ReporterA memorial of flowers and flags appeared Friday outside the Chinese restaurant where two Gilchrist County deputies were slain the day before while eating lunch.

Thanks for reading.Gateway Big City Band will perform ThursdayFrom staff reportsCommunity Concerts presents The Gateway City Big Band in concert 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Levy Performing Arts Center on the FGC campus. This outstanding band has been bringing the smooth and swinging sounds of the Big Band Era to North Florida since 1993. Founded by Harry Wuest, former conductor of Walt Disneys Top of the World Orchestra, the band continues to echo the sounds of the great big bands of the 1930s and 40s, as well as including more modern selections and contemporary arrangements for todays listeners. Now under the direction of Matt Johns, former member of The Glenn Miller Orchestra, this group of exceptional musicians delights their audiences with songs from their extensive library, including selections from Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey, Glenn Miller, Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, and many more. Johns is a gifted young local professional musician who plays a variety of woodwind instruments and guitar, and sings well, too. He developed under the tutelage and mentoring of the late, great Wuest, who passed away in 2012. Wuest was a big band sax player and managed several nationally known big bands. He later came to Lake City to teach at LCCC and lead the big band in which Johns played sax at the college. Wuest recognized Johns extraordinary musical talent, and with his recommendation, he was accepted into the Glenn Miller Orchestra, where he served as lead vocalist and played sax. Johns inherited Wuests extensive collection of big band music, and since returning to Lake City, Johns has sculpted the sound of Gateway City Big Band to rival the excel lence of the Glenn Miller Orchestra. As a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Johns has been performing since childhood. At age nineteen, he was hired for the world famous Glenn Miller Orchestra, with whom he performed over 600 shows between 2003 and 2007 alone, both as a saxophonist and lead vocalist. Johns returned home to Florida where he continues to work as a full-time musician, instructor, composer and arranger. His diversity on instruments has provided him great flexibility as a session player and utility man for local studios and bands ranging in all genres. Matt has per formed with a variety of other artists including the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra under the legendary trombonist, Buddy Morrow. Wuest, who started the Gateway City Big Band in 1993, had recently retired from full-time performing, conducting, producing, and managing some of the most popular artists of the Big Band world. In his retirement, he chose North Florida in which to continue to propagate his love for music. The Gateway City Big Band was born as a community outreach to both established and aspiring musicians, and with Wuests extensive library of music (assembled through decades of estimable performance), the band quickly began to flourish. Today, the band continues to echo the sounds of the great big bands of the 1930s and 40s, as well as including more modern selections and contemporary arrangements for todays listeners, while mixing in original arrangements and compositions with the beloved favorites. Under the direction of Johns, this group of exceptional musicians is sure to delight any audience. Open seating tickets ($20/adult & $5/student K-12 are available at www. communityconcerts.info, at the Lake City Chamber of Commerce, and at the door one hour before show time. Discounted group tickets are available for 10 or more adults @$15. More info at 386 466-2013.

His story reads like a screenplay and when he retells it he relives it, from finding the love of his life to the series of rightplace right-time decisions that took him from Parris Island to Capitol Hill. Lynn Harris said if he ever wrote a book about his life, the title would be meant to be. He said he joined the Marines on May 20, 1958, and between that time and May 20, 1961, he had moved up to an office in Washington, D.C., guarding commanders-in-chief and the top brass. Along the way he said he became good buddies with the grandson of George Bernard Shaw, played war games with Medal of Honor winner General David Shoup and stood guard at John F. Kennedys inauguration. Of the accolades and accomplishments of his eight decades of life, Harris recounted meeting his wife with special attention to detail. I met my wife, we both had an office in the same building, Harris said. She was an editor for a captain, shes the only one in the Marine Corps that could tell a captain what to do and how to do it and get a away with it. He said he watched this girl from his desk. His sergeant had warned him not to bother after she had refused the advances of officers. Here she comes in between two other lady Marines going in the opposite direction. I spotted her, gave her a smile and she smiled back and went on. And something hit me. Harris paused, until he could continue with his story. I cry because it was my wife. It was Febuary the 14th, Valentines Day. I turned around looked at her. I said, Rachel what time do you want me to pick you up for dinner. She turned around and looked at me and looked at the other two, she said, About 6:30. The only conversation we had at that time until I picked her up at night. That night he said he was interrogated by the Secret Service about his intentions with Sarah. She come walking down the stairs escorted by the captain who she worked with. That was the starting of it, six months later we were married, 53 years we were married. I lost her because of a brain aneurysm she had. Roughly 57 years later, Harris said hes now alone and turning to anyone for help with mounting hospital bills and relocation costs. Now he said his family consists of seven cats. Harris hurt his leg last November working outside on his ladder, and for months to follow has juggled medical procedures and run the gauntlet of real estate folks. It came to the point after almost four years I had to put the house up for sale, financially, physically, it got too much for me, said Harris. After he closes on his house, gets the last rounds of treatments on his leg and leaves rehab, he said hes not sure where hes going to go, or how hell get there. Through the help of a local real estate agent hes now selling the house he and his wife lived in. He credits Heather Gregg of Remax for everything, from helping him raise partial funding for medical costs, to selling his house after it had lingered on the market. She helped him raise close to $1,500, he said. Gregg set up a Go Fund Me account for Lynn, and acquired other individual donations. Boy let me tell you that helped considerably, so it now it gets me to the point where Im still struggling to make payments on other accounts that I owe, he said. Harris said his next steps are uncertain. Thats a good question, from here I got to find some place to relocate. One of the things that will help considerably, which I dont have at the moment would be funds to move into wherever Im going. I dont have any money to do that, this is my problem now, he said. Greggs Go Fund Me address for Harris is www. gofundme.com/help-save-a81-yr-old-marines-home. Lynn Harris, an 81-yearold Marine whos lived a storied life, isnt sure what the next chapter holds, following a leg injury that wont heal. His memory is just as good as ever, on the other hand.

On March 29, 2018, J. Quinton Rumph (FWHS 1941) died, from injuries received in a car crash. Those who knew Quinton will miss his ever-present smile, quick wit, deep Christian faith, and incredible generosity. Wit: Quinton was instrumental in establishing the Riverside United Methodist Park Housing for the Elderly in Jacksonville. He liked to joke that the projects initials, RUMPH, was named after him. Faith: He lived every day striving to abide by his commitment to living a life for Christ, and he prayed three times daily. Generosity: He earned millions with his law and real estate business, paid the taxes on itand then gave most of it away to universities (UF, UNF, Florida Southern College, and his beloved Fort White High School). And, Lord, oh yes, to the Advent Christian Village on whose campus buildings and the dining hall bear the Rumph name. He was also a wordsmith. He liked to say there is no such word as Honester. You are either honest or you are not, not more or less honest. After his dear wife Ann died (after nearly 60 years of marriage (we were always IN LOVE), Quinton decided to give $20,000 a year to a selected senior at Fort White School to memorialize Ann. He did this every year for 16 years and donated a total of $329, 000 to the Ann Rumph Scholarship program. Quinton never had a hand in the scholarship selection, never met the students, and never followed up to check on the students progress. None ever let him down. Some of these scholarship recipients: Leslie Ammerman, Ashley Beckman, Danielle Leon, Caitlyn Wilson, Tiffany Joseph, Dustin Cason, Stephen Lynch, Whitney Bigelow, Della Katharine Etheridge, Corey Wilson, Molly Shoniker, Sherod Keen, Dominic Deluca, and Trace Wilkinson. All these students honored Quintons faith in them by doing great in college and becoming solid citizens afterwards. For example, Corey Wilson became a physician, Dominic Deluca became an attorney, and Sherrod Keen became our Columbia County Teacher of the Year. Quintons scholarships will not end upon his death because he had arranged for his college endowments to flow to Fort White seniors after his death.Quinton Rumph: What a guy! YESIREE! WHAT A GUY!CHS RETIREESDebra Wright, high-energy editor of the CHS retiree email reports and newsletters, reminds, especially retirees from the former CHS North (9th and 10th grade center) they should remember they are also CHS retirees and should email her. No matter your job there or how long or short term your tenure was there. Email her! dawnoco@ yahoo.com Debra is planning future newsletters, including plans for a special Memorial Day article for those who died in any war (including the Korea police action), so she can print their names. For example the 12 who died in WW II, Pete Roberts and Billy Slade who died in Korea, Eugene Johnson and James Rehberg who died in Viet Nam. She is also planning a Mothers Day tribute to all mothers of CHS retirees. Send her the names. Mark honor if still alive, memorial if deceased. Email Debra! There is fellowship to enjoy and FUN to be had.FRIENDSYou and I is friends! You smile I smile. You cry I cry. You jump off a high bridge. Well, Im really gonna miss you!New home building and the uptick in the real estate market are the best signal that our local economy continues to strengthen. Its no secret that these partner industries have been a catalyst to other growth sectors in our market in the past and theres no reason to believe otherwise for the future. Thats what makes next weekends Parade of Homes event so exciting. All the planning comes together Saturday and Sunday, April 28-29, when 18 new homes will be on display and open to the public. These homes will be showcased and available for tours at a leisurely pace and the builders or builders representative will be on hand to answer questions and discuss features of the residence. This event is monumental. There have not been 18 new homes on display and ready for sale at one time in Lake City and Columbia County in more than a decade. The Parade of Homes event is completely free. There is a map of the locations, with street addresses and the builders name, in todays Lake City Reporter and each issue every day all week. If you prefer the digital version, an identical copy is available at www.lakecityreporter.com. You can tour the homes in any order you choose and at your own pace. Homes will be open from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday and noon5 p.m. on Sunday. Visitors there early both days might be in time for some nice take-home swag. Most of the builders will be prepared on site with additional house plans and information about other designs and photos of their work from other sites, so interested visitors can get an idea of other home concepts that are available. We are honored to partner with the Columbia County Builders Association to revive this tradition of showcasing new-home construction in Columbia County and the excitement continues to build surrounding this years event. One more time, check out the fullpage 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 in the Wednesday, April 25, Lake City Reporter, 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 next weekend, April 28-29, to visit some or all of the homes featured in the Parade of Homes and support Lake Citys rising Builders Association and all of the advertising partners that believe in this event and this community and helped us organize this Parade of Homes. Rally for this group of builders that may be the catalyst for Lake Citys next economic stride.

Lets take a minute to absorb what theyve accomplished thus far.

Todays Tigers finished the regular season on an 11-0 run and look to be peaking at just the right time. Congratulations to head coach Trudy Andrews and her assistants, Wayne Andrews and Mitch Shoup, for a great regular season. We know youre focused on the big prize, but youve done great to date and that needs to be noted as well. We said good luck in the headline, but were not sure you or your girls need it. Go Tigers.

Highnote shot and killed himself in his car outside the restaurant before other deputies responded. Authorities on Friday had no new information about the gunman. Hes a coward, period, GCSO said in a written statement. There will never be a reason for what he did to Sgt. Noel Ramirez and Deputy Taylor Lindsey, GCSO said. Nor will it ever satisfy their families. They sat down to eat, and were here to serve. The K-12 school at First Baptist Church of Trenton, about three-quarters of a mile from the shooting, was preparing to let students out at the time. A concerned parent called to make sure the school was on lockdown as authorities requested, McConnell said. Siren after siren blared as patrol cars and ambulances raced by the church. Its just so unusual for anything much to happen here, he said. With no solid information, people started speculating. Some were confident there had been a drive-by shooting. We didnt know what was going on, McConnell said. Staff members held the students until it was safe for them to leave. McConnell learned the victims identities from a congregation member around 3:30 p.m. Both deputies had responded to the church before to assist with confidential family issues, McConnell said. The community had nothing but positive things to say about both, McConnell said. News of the shooting should have come as a shock to McConnell. But it didnt. I dont find too many things shocking anymore, he said. Its just a reminder that no one, no matter how young or how old, is guaranteed a long life. McConnell points at the rising tide of anti-police rhetoric in society as a driving force behind violence against law enforcement. I think its created an unnecessary division, he said. On Friday afternoon, McConnell had a clear idea of the question hed need to answer when he steps behind the pulpit this morning. Where was God in this? But evil is a choice people make, not God, he said. We cant be good, he said. Theres nothing in us that can be good. Daniel Mancini, a pastors assistant with First Baptist Church of Trenton, thought nothing of the sirens at first. A nearby bank had been robbed in recent months, perhaps it had happened again. Then word about the shooting quickly spread through town, as it tends to do in a place so small as Trenton. So the first thought is just keep the kids safe, Mancini said. He didnt learn the deputies names until watching the news later that night. Ramirez was a regular at his gym, Mancini said. I was just shocked, he said. Sick to my stomach. A light-hearted soul, Ramirez enjoyed talking about being a father and had a penchant for quoting movies, particularly comedies, Mancini said. Ramirez loved to make people laugh, and it was rare to not see him smiling in public, Mancini said. When the wife of the gyms owner was diagnosed with cancer, Ramirez never missed an opportunity to ask about her or wish her well. He was always concerned with what was going on with your life, Mancini said. Lindsey once responded to the church to help a child who was having an issue at home, Mancini said. When someone lives in a small town long enough, they usually end up insulating themselves in an it-cant-happenhere bubble, he said. The tragedy shattered Mancinis bubble. Its just an eye-opener, he said. Pastor John Caraway of Living Praise Church of God was getting ready to get a haircut when he heard the gunshots. But Caraway didnt recognize the sounds at first and paid them little attention. When he pulled out onto State Road 26, traffic was worse than usual. I thought it was maybe an accident, Caraway said. Then he saw what seemed like the whole town gathering at Ace China. Thats when I knew it was something more than an accident, he said. Caraway started talking to the crowd to try to find out more information. Why would something like this happen? he thought to himself when a witness told him what had happened. Were living in some dangerous times. The community has been on high alert since the shooting, he said. You always think itd happen somewhere else and not your home, he said. Caraway said hed been thinking about what hell say to his congregation this morning. It wouldnt be an easy task, and he still hadnt made up his mind Friday afternoon. This hits home, he said. It gets you thinking about life. Choices. Ramirez Lindsey TRENTONContinued From 1APhotos by CARL MCKINNEY/Lake City ReporterCCSO lending a hand in Gilchrist during aftermathBy COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comAfter two Gilchrist County Sheriffs deputies were killed on duty Thursday, the immediate reaction from neighboring agencies was an outpouring of support, both moral and logistical. One of the good things about the Florida Sheriffs Association, in times of crisis we come together to protect our communities, said Columbia County Sheriff Mark Hunter. Hunter was at the scene of the shooting in Trenton that afternoon, with Gilchrist County just over the Columbia County line under its southwest border. He said local deputies were dispatched to assist GCSO that day as well. Hunter, along with several sheriffs and state law enforcement officials, stood by Sheriff Robert Schultz while he delivered the first press conference after the shooting. The location of the shooting, a Chinese restaurant, was visible only yards away as gloved investigators conducted searches. Hunter said CCSO continued to help with calls Friday. Immediately whenever something like this hap pens, however we get notified, we immediately will go into rendering assistance, he said. Whatever the sheriff or agency needs were going to do our best to support him. He said in crisis events like Thursday, a network of coordinated interagency assistance jumps into action. The scene of the shooting showed this, with county agencies from both Dixie and Alachua, along with Florida Highway Patrol and state investigators all assisting in some capacity. Some acted as media liaisons and others as traffic control. Hunter said they had to help get the GCSO through the officers funerals as well. Its a traumatic incident for the entire agency and for this community as a whole, some more than others, he said. You have to give them time to regroup and get themselves back to normal operations. His own department has received similar assistance, Hunter said. Weve had several incidents happened over the years, Hunter said. This is not uncommon. This is just part of what we do. This is the fabric of our community. ABOVE: Pastor Keith McConnell of First Baptist Church of Trenton is pic tured in the church sanctuary on Friday.

Pulitzer-winner to speak at library todayBy COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comThis afternoon, a 2018 Pulitzer Prize winning author and UF professor will present a library lecture on his area of expertise Florida, where it came from, what natural events formed it and how it relates to the people that lived and live here. Jack Davis will speak at the main branch of the Columbia County Library at 2 p.m. today to deliver his lecture, Natures Dozen: How Key Natural Events Shaped the History of Florida. Davis won a Pulitzer for his book The Gulf: The Making of an American Sea. Historians typically ignore the role of nature in the human experience so I do something different, Davis told the Lake City Reporter. As an environmental historian Im very much interested in how nature has impinged on human affairs. From its geological formation to the present the event is all about how nature shaped Florida history. Id like that people think more broadly about history, he said. The underlying message is that human life is connected to the natural world. That its more than just a backdrop to our history and more than just a backdrop to our lives. And having lived in Florida his entire life, growing up along the Gulf Coast in Fort Walton Beach and later Tampa, the subject comes naturally to him. Im interested in the geography, the climate. The water, the wildlife, the vegetation and of course the beaches and how all of those things have shaped Florida history, he said. Davis is a professor of environmental history and sustainable studies at UF. It took me about five years to write that book, he said of his 2017 book that won the Pulitzer. Obviously it was inspired from growing up on the Gulf of Mexico. His next work is titled Cultural and Natural History of the Bald Eagle. UF history prof Jack Davis set to lecture at 2 p.m. Davis The median sale price last month was $158,500, a 3.1 percent decrease from the $163,500 figure for March 2017 But while the median price dropped slightly, the average sale price increased by 2.2 percent. The average was $164,791, compared to $161,247 for the same period last year. Nineteen of the homes purchased this March were paid for in cash, compared to 14 in March 2017. The total dollar value of the sales was $10.1 million, more than a 30 percent increase from the $7.7 million recorded for the same period last year. The number of new listings did drop by 23.4 percent compared to March 2017. This March, there were 72 new listings, compared to 94 for the same month last year. There were 236 total active listings, 16.8 percent fewer than the 283 recorded in March 2017. Eight listings were below $50,000, while 23 were between $50,000 and $99,999. Thirty-eight listings were in the $100,000 to $149,999 range. Forty-seven listings were in the $150,000 to $199,999 range. Thirty-nine listings were in the $200,000 to $249,999 range. Thirty-three were between $250,000 and $299,999, while 21 were between $300,000 and $399,999. Eighteen sat in the $400,000 to $599,999 range, while eight were between $600,000 and $999,999. Only one listing went above $1 million. Comparing home sales from month-to-month isnt as useful as evaluating yearto-year changes because the market is affected by seasonal cycles, according to Florida Realtors. But Columbia County did see an uptick in sale closures in recent months from 43 in November to 54 in December to 40 in January to 44 in February to the 61 reported in March.

Were not looking that good right now, said Monty Stephens, president of the Lake City-Columbia County Habitat for Humanity. Things just seem to take a lot of time the permit process, getting the lot cleared and getting all the vegetative material out from where the slab will be those have been the slow things. Its all taken a lot longer than what we thought. The home will be constructed at 268 NW Ethelind Court, near west U.S. Highway 90. An additional problem for this home is that the concrete slab cant be poured at grade, Stephens said. He said the slab has to be built above the street level and getting bids for that portion of the project is also taking longer than anticipated. Publix donated $81,500 for the project. Were just absolutely tickled that they did that, Stephens said. It came at the right time. Our coffers were dwindling down a little bit and we had just enough money to build this next home and we would have been basically broke. The Lake City-Columbia County Habitat For Humanity is depending on community participation to help make the deadline and the ninth local Habitat home a reality. Normally in building a Habitat home, a lot of volunteer labor is used as well as contracting for certain services such as electrical and HVAC. We end up working mostly Saturdays where we get big church groups and volunteers, Stephens said. On the last home, we actually added Wednesdays and bunch of Thursdays. Weve only been working two days out of the week and on homes before this, just one day, thats why its taken so long. The plan for the ninth Habitat home will not follow that model. On this house we want to get volunteers and have something going five days a week and thats how we think were still going to meet our time frame. Even now were still not worried. The Lake City-Columbia County Habitat For Humanity plans to start its latest build within the next two weeks. Once we get that slab set up, and we have to have concrete blocks on the side of it because its going to be built up on one side nearly four feet to accommodate for the slope of the lot, then we can start framing and thats when things will start going fast, Stephens said. During past builds, Habitat has used volunteer work from more than 200 people per home. Stephens expects no less for this home build. We get a lot of people that just want to come out and lend a hand, he said. Were getting calls now. Weve getting calls from churches asking when are we going to start. Stephens said the effort to get the home built in time will be dependent on a variety of volunteers and the amount of time they want to work on the project. Were going to put a big effort in on this house to try to make it happen on time, Stephens said. Were still looking for supporters, particularly people in the trade industry electricians, plumbers, HVAC workers people that are licensed. Those are always some of our big needs.

Coinciding with its opening, the local swim team is looking for team members for the first team to use the new pool since work began around last October. Theres also a first for the aquatic centers home team, the Columbia Tiger Sharks, this season.

She said that meant more handson instruction with each team member. The pool opens May 7 at 3 p.m. to the public, and later that day at 4:30 p.m. the Tiger Sharks are holding tryouts, Kendron said.

PREP SOFTBALLBy JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comShes quiet but fiery. Hes just fiery. They sometimes butt heads but Columbia pitcher CrisDeona Beasley has a special bond with assistant coach Mitch Shoup. Beasley has been a three-year starter on the mound for the Lady Tigers, thrown into the fire as a freshman when injuries struck the team, and Shoup has been by her side through it all. From an up-and-down freshman campaign to a heartbreaking regional final loss as a sophomore, Shoup has helped mold Beasley into a dominant ace for Columbia. Now, as a junior, Beasley has the Class 7A No. 6 Lady Tigers riding an 11-game winning streak heading into this weeks District 3-7A Tournament. She also helped Columbia notch its first 20-win season since 2014 with a 7-0 shutout victory over Atlantic Coast on Thursday. Sporting a 1.21 ERA with 95 strikeouts in 98 2/3 innings, Beasley has stifled batters with her wide array of pitches, sending one after another back to their dugouts with shoulders shrugged and heads down, unable to solve her curveball, changeup, screwball and knuckleball. And that regional final loss to Nease when she was pulled less than two innings in? It no longer bothers Beasley, now armed to the teeth with a confidence that cant be broken. Ive moved on from it but Ive learned a lesson. Before I come into a game I have to prepare more and know that Ive practiced enough before that game, said Beasley, who has college interest from Santa Columbia pitcher CrisDeona Beasley reacts after recording an out against Aucilla Christian on Apr. 17. By HANK KURZ Jr.Associated PressRICHMOND, Va. Kyle Busch pulled away on a restart in a two-lap overtime sprint to the finish Saturday night for his third consecutive NASCARs Cup Series victory. Busch, who started 32nd but quickly worked his way into contention, outran Chase Elliott and teammate Denny Hamlin for his fifth career victory at Richmond Raceway, the most among active drivers. The victory is his 46th overall and came from the deepest starting spot in the field of his career. It also is the deepest starting position for a winner at Richmond, surpassing Clint Bowyer, who started 31st in 2008. The points leader also matched Kevin Harvicks three-race winning streak from earlier in the season. Pats on the back, everybody, Busch said on his radio after taking the checkered flag. The race went more than 350 laps with the only cautions coming after stages one and two, both won by defending race champion Joey Logano, and remained clean until Ryan Blaney and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. crashed on Lap 353, bringing out the first on-track yellow. Busch took the lead after the next caution, brought out by the smoking car of Ryan Newman, when he was running second to Truex heading onto pit road and got out first. He also beat Hamlin and Harvick off the line on a restart with six to go, and then never let anyone contend when the race went back to green for the final time on lap 400. The pit crew tonight, they won this race for us, Busch said. They got us off pit road first those last two times and got us where we needed to be.

Driver started 32nd but quickly raced into contention.Kirkman has number retired By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comColumbia was on the doorstep of a comeback win after tying the score in the sixth-inning. Newberry, though, refused to fold, silencing the home crowd in the seventh. The Tigers chances to knock off the visiting Panthers seemed to vanish on Parker Aultmans base-clearing triple in the top frame. Newberry recorded five runs total during the pivotal inning, enough to pull away from Columbia 7-2 Friday night. The Tigers recorded just six hits in their fourth straight loss, a frustrating defeat for a reeling Columbia team that left runners stranded in scoring position several times. I think five of the seven innings for us we had a runner at second base with one or two outs, Columbia coach Brian Thomas said. We got to score them And I love on-base percentage, were close to being where we (should). But there comes a point and time that we got to get a base hit.

The 76ers lead the Eastern Conference series 3-1 and can close out the Heat when play resumes in Philadelphia on Tuesday night. Simmons became the first rookie since Magic Johnson in 1980 to post a playoff triple-double 17 points, 13 rebounds, 10 assists. Joel Embiid finished with 14 points and 12 rebounds for Philadelphia. Dwyane Wade led all scorers with 25 points off the bench for the Heat, who led by 12 points in the second half before letting a game they almost certainly had to have slip away.PELICANS 131, TRAIL BLAZERS 123In New Orleans, Anthony Davis scored 33 of his franchise playoff-record 47 points in the second half, and the Pelicans completed a firstround playoff sweep of the Portland Trail Blazers. Jrue Holiday capped his 41-point performance with an 18-foot pull-up jumper that gave the Pelicans a six-point lead with 40 seconds left. Rajon Rondo added 16 assists, and Davis also had 11 rebounds and three blocks for New Orleans, which is moving on to the second round of the playoffs for only the second time since the NBA returned to the city 16 seasons ago. C.J. McCollum scored 38 for the Trail Blazers. TIMBERWOLVES 121, ROCKETS 105In Minneapolis, Jimmy Butler hit four 3-pointers among his 28 points and Karl-Anthony Towns snapped back from a bad start to the series with 18 points and 16 rebounds, leading the Minnesota Timberwolves past the Houston Rockets for their first postseason victory in 14 years. Jeff Teague scored 23 points and Andrew Wiggins pitched in 20 points with another four 3-pointers. Derrick Rose added 17 points off the bench for the Wolves, who will try to even the series with a win in Game 4 on Monday night. James Harden led the way for Houston with 29 points.Associated PressTAMPA Nikita Kucherov scored his 27th career postseason goal, Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 26 shots and Tampa Bay beat New Jersey 3-1 to end the firstround series in five games. The 19-year-old Mikhail Sergachev became the youngest player in Lightning history to score a playoff goal and Ryan Callahan, back in the lineup after missing the previous two games with an upperbody injury, sealed it with an empty-netter with 1.7 seconds remaining. Tampa Bay advanced to a second-round series against the BostonToronto winner. Kyle Palmieri scored for the Devils.CAPITALS 3, BLUE JACKETS 2In Washington, Nicklas Backstrom scored his second goal of the game 11:53 into overtime to give the Washington Capitals a victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday and a 3-2 lead in the first-round playoff series. Braden Holtby made 16 of his 39 saves in the third period to help Washington get to overtime. Four of five games between the teams have gone past regulation making fatigue a factor for Game 6 Monday night in Columbus. Evgeny Kuznetsov and T.J. Oshie scored along with Backstrom in regulation for the Capitals, who became the first home team this series to win a home game. Fellow Vezina Trophy-winning goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky allowed a soft goal to Kuznetsov as one of his four on 29 shots in the loss. Matt Calvert scored short-handed and on a breakaway and Oliver Bjorkstrand had a deflection goal for Columbus.MAPLE LEAFS 4, BRUINS 3In Boston, Tyler Bozak and James van Riemsdyk scored 1:19 apart in the second period, and then the Toronto Maple Leafs killed off a 5-on-3 and three more power plays in a row to beat the Boston Bruins in Game 5 on Saturday night and avoid playoff elimination. Connor Brown and Andreas Johnsson each scored his first career playoff goal in the first period, and the Maple Leafs took a 4-1 lead to chase Tuukka Rask in the second. Frederik Andersen stopped 42 shots for Toronto, which returns home for Game 6 on Monday. Game 7 would be back in Boston on Wednesday, if necessary.Kucherov, Lightning take down Devils to end first-round seriescareer. The first came in 2015, when he won his only championship. I dont know if you can shoot for four in a row, he said. Its hard to go to Tallagega with the much of a winning streak and think that you can get to Victory Lane. The end was a bitter pill for Truex, who ran up front all night. He and Busch were dueling after a restart with 23 laps to go, and after Busch pulled away, Truex seemed to be closing ground until a spin by David Ragan brought out the yellow. All the front-runners pitted, and while Truexs team struggled mightily in the No. 1 pit stall, Truex could only watch as contender after contender beat him off pit road. He lost at least seven spots by the time NASCAR had sorted out the next restart starting order. It marked the 75th time he has raced on a short track in NASCARs premier series, and perhaps the best chance hes had in those 17 chances to come away with a victory, but instead he dropped to 0-for75 on short tracks for his career.

S UNDAY, APRIL 22, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER 3B OUTDOORSSkin protection is critical in the summer weatherBy MONTY STEPHENSSpecial to the ReporterSummer is just around the corner and fishing is starting to get really good. Anglers all across Florida are venturing outdoors to enjoy time on the water. Being outdoors is good but overexposure to the sun is not. The link between the sun and skin cancer is undeniable. Many people believe the suns rays are even more damaging now than they were a few decades ago. The American Cancer Society projects 3.5 million Americans this year will hear they have skin cancer. Of this total, 74,000 cases will be melanoma, the most serious type of skin cancer. The good news is most skin cancers can be prevented. So if you want fishing to be a sport you enjoy well into your senior years, then please, take steps now to protect yourself from the sun. Dermatologist Dr. Robert Skidmore, Jr. sees patients daily who have suffered the ill-effects of the sun. As anglers, we are at an increased risk from the damaging effects of the sun because of reflected rays from the water and because of the length of time we spend on the water. He offers the following tips for anglers to reduce their risk of skin damage: Cover up. Wear lightweight long sleeve shirts and pants. Several companies produce excellent fishing clothes that provide protection from the sun and are cool to wear. The shirts are vented and the material wicks moisture away. Newer fabrics have been developed that feel soft to the touch and are comfortable. Using a neck gaiter provides protection to the face, neck and ears. Several companies make fishing gloves designed to protect the backs of the hands. Wearing all of this with a proper hat is by the far the very best protection. South Florida guides who spend countless days on the water do all of these to protect their skin. Keep in mind, even on overcast, cloudy days, harmful UV rays are present. Apply Sunblock. Sunblock lotion should be liberally applied at least 30 minutes before going out into the sun. The first application should be made before you leave your house. The lotion should be applied before you start to perspire, so the sunblock can soak into the skin. Refresh frequently throughout the day. Choose a sunblock with a SPF rating of at least 30 for the arms, legs, face and neck. A water-resistant lotion of SPF 50+ should be used the nose and the tops of your ears. As the days grow longer and warmer, and the sun intensifies in its strength, anglers need to take precautions against the suns harmful rays, says Dr. Sam Economou, a plastic and reconstructive surgery practice located in Edina, Minn. Wear a hat. The skin on the head and face are especially vulnerable to the ill effects of the sun. At minimum wear a cap with a front bill. Better yet, wear one of the Boonie Hats (floppy hats) to cover up the forehead, ears and neck. You can always switch to a ball cap for the ride in. Wear sunglasses. Sun glasses will go a long way in protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays.Sunglasses that wrap around your face offer the best protection. Polarized lenses or reflective lenses are the very best. As an added benefit, they cut the glare on the water and allow you to see more fish. This is the best way to prevent formation of cataracts when you are older. Check your skin regularly. All of us can get skin cancer, but some skin types are especially prone. If you notice a spot that has changed in texture, color, size or shape, have it checked out. Take this seriously. Your doctor will take it seriously and its better to be safe than sorry. This is essential for all of us that spend considerable time outdoors, whether we are playing golf, fishing or working. During scalloping season, children are especially probe to sunburns since they are swimming in the water, which washes their sunblock lotion off. It is a good idea for them to wear a t-shirt or other covering while swimming. Our goal is to enjoy our time on the water and avoid a sunburn. Sunburns cause damage to the skin that often times cannot be fully understood. It is thought sunburns we received when we were younger are what leads to skin cancer when we are older. With proper protection, we can still enjoy a day of fishing and not subject ourselves to the ill-effects of the sun. Make it your goal to go fishing and come home looking like you didnt go fishing. Fishing is about spending time outdoors. And more often than not, most people enjoy fishing when the weather is nice and the sun is at its strongest. That puts many of Americas 50 million anglers at risk for skin cancer, says Dr. Economou. The more time you spend outdoors fishing, the greater risk of exposure to harmful ultraviolet radiation and sunburns. The best way to lower the rate of skin cancer and the pain and loss of life from this disease is to educate the public about skin cancer risk factors, prevention and detection. Its important for health care professionals and skin cancer survivors to remind others about the dangers of too much UV exposure (both from the sun and from man-made sources such as tanning beds) and about how easily they can protect their skin from UV rays. Skin cancer can often be found early, when it is most likely to be cured. Monthly skin self-exams and awareness of the warning signs of skin cancer may be helpful in finding most skin cancer when they are at an early, curable stage.COURTESYDale Harris, McDuffie Marine and Sporting Goods, decked out in sun protection gear is ready for a day of fishing. Fishing is about spending time outdoors. And more often than not, most people enjoy shing when the weather is nice and the sun is at its strongest.

Scott, FWC announce 40-day recreational red snapper seasonFrom staff reportsThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and Gov. Rick Scott are excited to announce a 40-day recreational red snapper season for both Gulf state and federal waters. A 24-day season was originally proposed. Gov. Scott said, Florida is a premier fishing destination and saltwater fishing in the Gulf of Mexico has a $7.6 billion economic impact in our state every year. Adding additional opportunities for anglers to enjoy Floridas world-class fishing not only benefits our visitors but also our Gulf Coast communities. I am pleased to announce this extension today, and encourage visitors and residents to start planning their summer fishing trips. Florida is an important access point throughout the nation and world for recreational red snapper fishing, said FWC Chairman Bo Rivard. With other Gulf states setting longer seasons than what Florida had initially proposed, it was important for us to find a fair resolution that would provide equal access to red snapper in Florida. FWC worked collaboratively with NOAA Fisheries to come up with a season that would provide access to all of those that choose Florida as their fishing destination. We appreciate the leadership from Gov. Rick Scott and U.S. Congressman Neal Dunn and we are excited to announce that extension today. Florida will be setting the season in 2018 and 2019 in both state and federal waters through a fishery-management pilot program (also referred to as an Exempted Fishing Permit). The 2018 proposed season would open June 11 and close July 21. This recreational season will include those fishing for red snapper from private recreational vessels. For-hire operations that do not have a federal reef fish permit are also included but are limited to targeting reef fish in Gulf state waters only. This Exempted Fishing Permit will not apply to commercial fishermen or for-hire operations with a valid federal reef fish permit.

The Noles scored all four runs with two outs in the fifth inning to take game one of the series. Warren hit her 11th home run of the season and 73rd of her career, moving her into a tie for 16th in NCAA history with Washingtons Jamie Clark (2000-03).ROUNDUPFe, SCU, Southeastern, Daytona State. I have to give it my all and go out there with my best potential and be ready to perform well. Beasley has come a long way from when she first put on a Columbia jersey. Shes always been an aggressive, hard-nosed competitor, but her pitching repertoire as a freshman was a bit bare. Her changeup needed work and her curveball was nonexistent, two pitches Shoup knew she needed to have to be successful at the high school level. So the duo went to work. Shes developed into a different type of pitcher, said Shoup, who was also an assistant coach on Columbias 2013 state title team. She was a power pitcher trying to throw it by everybody, throwing a screwball in their hands and she learned quickly in this league youre not going to have a lot of strikeouts. Youre going to get more ground balls, pop flies and things like that so we try to keep batters off balance and she bought into that. She still gets her fair share of strikeouts but shes kind of bought into letting her defense work and throw strikes and change speeds. When Beasley wasnt practicing with Shoup she continued to perfect her craft away from Columbia with her pitching coach Dale Townsend, who shes worked with since middle school. While Shoup made sure not to mess too much with her arm developed mostly by Townsend he made it a goal to develop Beasley into a mound mentalist. Even if that meant walking a tightrope with her spirited personality. I think her and mine relationship is kind of like a love-hate relationship. I can get on her and then I can love her and she responds to both well, Shoup said. She knows when shes not giving her all or shes not putting forth the effort that I like to see. She knows Im going to come out there and get on her and shell respond. In the past, maybe not quite so much as this year, but this year she responds well and she understands what Im wanting more. I think through the years its just become a better relationship as far as just understanding each other. Beasley didnt really know what to expect from Shoup when she first arrived at Columbia. She didnt even expect to play right away. But when incumbent starter Ivorie Maltby went down with an injury three games into the season, Beasley was instantly thrust into action, forced to trust Shoup from the get-go of her high school career. The lineup card hasnt changed much since then. Theres usually a next to Beasleys name, and theres always mutual trust with Coach Shoup. And that curveball Shoup wanted Beasley to develop it? Its now one of her best pitches. My freshman year I didnt know him well and he was kind of fiery and he knows my attitude because Im fiery too so we gelled well, Beasley said. I was pumped up to play for him. Now in my junior year we have a good relationship and I just understand him with the pitch calling and Im comfortable with him calling my pitches. Beasley has always been a talented pitcher. Shes played travel ball since she was in elementary school and she recently tried out and earned a spot on the Florida Gold travel team, which shell play for this summer. And shes managed to pitch from a young age despite having hands smaller than the average pitcher, which she says sometimes forces her to change her grip on the ball. Thats something Beasley says used to bother her but no longer does. In her words, I just try to pitch as hard as I can. When I first came here I would say I could pitch my movement pitches but they didnt move as much, Beasley said. My hands are really little so I have to work on my spin and stuff a lot because the ball will get away from because my hands are so little. I would say when I first came here I pitched fast but I didnt have control. As Ive grown I think Ive gained more control and more consistency. Beasley has never been more consistent than shes been during Columbias 11-game winning streak. She hasnt given up more than one earned run in any of the nine games shes pitched (she was given rest against Buchholz and Vanguard). It may seem like a lot is riding on Beasleys shoulders heading into the postseason but she now welcomes it. So does Shoup. I think the team has confidence in her and they know shes going to go out there every night and give the team what it needs to have an opportunity to win the game, Shoup said. I have tremendous confidence in CrisDeona against the good hitting teams as well. Shes shown it all year. Shes kept the scores down and given us an opportunity to win. BEASLEY Continued From 1B PREP BASEBALLCHS retires Kirkmans jerseyable to get a base knock. Against the Class 5A Panthers (11-8), the Class 7A Tigers (9-12) couldnt find their groove offensively, after scoring eight runs in a contest the night before. Newberry starting pitcher Dylan Schaffer cruised until he gave up the tying run in the sixth. Columbia starting pitcher Daveion Love, who finished with five strikeouts, authored a solid performance on the hill. The senior shook off two early runs and kept the Tigers in contention throughout the night. It wasnt until the seventh when he gave up a single, hit a batter and walked another to loaded the bases early on. I thought he did great, Thomas said of Love. Hes had four or five (appearances) in a row now where he deserved better fate. Tough last inning. Columbia batters went down in order in the final frame, ending any rally chance. Were pressing when we dont need to press, Thomas said. Were very good swinging the bat, but we get ahead of ourselves thinking-wiseWere just looking to get a knock. Its frustrating from that end of it. Again, we swung the bats well and put balls in play. But we got to put balls in play when we got a guy standing over there at second We cant rely on small-ball to win a district championship, or the first game. Columbia isnt the only time District 3-7A team thats struggling with the tournament only two weeks away. No.1 seed Gainesville has lost five of their last seven games while No. 3 seed Middleburg has dropped six of its last seven. In their final three regular season games, starting with Palatka Monday, the Tigers hope to snap their losing skid and regain some momentum before their district semifinal matchup on May 1 against the Middleburg Broncos, who swept the four-seeded Tigers this year. They got to figure it out and dig down deep, Thomas added. Guys need to step up. CHS Continued From 1B By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comMIchael Kirkman was cemented into Columbia folklore Friday night. Alongside friends and family, the former MLB pitcher had his No. 16 jersey officially retired as the school honored its only big-league player during pregame festivities. The Lake City native, who pitched a no-hitter and an 18-strikeout game during his time at Columbia, says it felt full circle returning to the ballpark in which he used to rule. So many memories, said Kirkman, who was drafted by the Texas Rangers in 2005. People you dont get to talk to as much as you want to, just seeing them and coming back into this setting, with this ceremony, its humbling. It really is. Some of Kirkmans former teammates and coaches were also in attendance for his big day. It was really, really good thing, said former Columbia skipper Andy Bennett, who coached Kirkman during his eight seasons at the helm. Im glad coach (Brian) Thomas was able to put this together.. Family and former players were able to come out and celebrate a great achievement. One of the greatest (things) you can do in baseball is get to the level that he was, pitching in a World Series. It couldnt have happened to a better guy a family guy, and hard worker. It was a good time. Following his 10-year stint with the Rangers, Kirkman, 31, played for the San Diego Padres, Milwaukee Brewers and Atlanta Braves before calling it quits last year. Before he embarked on his career in pro baseball, where he bounced around from city to city, the former Columbia star says he never forgot his early principles. Hard work and determination, he said. Thats always the biggest keys. Talent will only take you so far and (you) got to have perseverance during hard times. There were times I didnt want to pitch, theres times when I wanted quit and come home. But I stuck it through, figured it out and made a career out of it.Photos by BRENT KUYKENDALL/Lake City ReporterFormer Columbia and MLB pitcher is honored alongside friends, family and players prior to the Tigers game against Newberry on Friday night.

Well announce it in next weeks edition. prefer sinking prices. Its always best to buy into healthy and growing companies when their stocks are trading at fair or depressed prices and bargains abound in bear markets. Why hope to buy shares of a company you admire at $30 and then $40 after it rises, when youd do better buying at $30 and $20? If you plan to buy coffee for the next 25 years, 10 years of falling coffee prices would be welcome, right? (Unless you run a coffee plantation, of course.) One effective way to build your wealth is to invest money regularly, over many years. Many patient investors have amassed great fortunes over the long run, while those trying to get rich quick in stocks are just gambling and often dont do well. The media usually treats big or sustained drops in the stock market as only bad and as a good reason to panic. The only ones who should panic, though, are those who need to sell their holdings soon and they shouldnt even be invested in stocks. Its best to invest in stocks only with money you can leave in the market for five, or even 10, years.Toying With ProfitsIt might be game over for toy retailer Toys R Us, which is undergoing liquidation as its business evaporates, but that doesnt mean that toy and game giant Hasbro (Nasdaq: HAS) is doomed, even though its stock is being dragged down by the news. Hasbro has multiple channels through which to sell its games and toys, and Toys R Us wasnt the companys biggest retailer. In 2017, Walmart, Toys R Us and Target were its three largest customers, accounting for 19 percent, 9 percent and 9 percent of global sales, respectively. Tie-ins with movies are one of many ways Hasbro is growing, thanks to the enduring popularity of franchises such as Star Wars, Transformers and Marvel superheroes, not to mention Hasbros continuing relationship with Disney. Meanwhile, Hasbros rivals are weakening. Mattels revenue has been shrinking over the past few years, and Hasbro is looking to acquire it. Hasbro has a track record of developing products that kids can relate to, and with its growing presence in the digital market, Hasbro ought to be able to capitalize on kids seeking online entertainment. Its brands include Nerf, My Little Pony, Transformers, Play-Doh, Monopoly and Magic: The Gathering. Recently trading near 52-week lows and sporting a 3 percent dividend yield, Hasbros stock is worth considering. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Hasbro.) rffGreat Concepts Arent EnoughMy dumbest investment was in Solomon Technologies, a company making innovative electric motors. It was an exciting concept, but I lost all the money I invested. D.A., online The Fool Responds: When investing, an exciting concept isnt enough. A company should ideally offer growing revenue and profits, a healthy balance sheet (meaning little debt and ample cash to meet obligations and fuel growth), one or more sustainable competitive advantages, and trustworthy, capable management. In the case of Solomon Technologies, its visionary CEO ended up accused by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of defrauding investors through illegal trading. He subsequently left the company. Its always smart to research a company thoroughly before investing, but you can still end up surprised and burned on occasion. Thats why its important not to invest too many eggs in too few baskets. If your Solomon stake made up half your overall portfolios value, it would have been devastating, but if it was just a 10th or 20th of it, it would sting less. Many times, exciting companies you run across have not yet grown into profit-making enterprises and are worth avoiding. In one of Solomons filings with the SEC, it noted, We have never been profitable, and if we continue to lose money and do not achieve profitability soon, we may be unable to continue our business. It also noted unpaid taxes and debts. Look Before You Buy LEAPSQWhat are LEAPS? H.B., Pueblo, ColoradoALong Term Equity Anticipation Securities (LEAPS) are long-term options. Standard options let you purchase the right to buy (via call options) or sell (via put options) a fixed number of shares of a stock at a fixed price within a fixed time period, typically a few months. LEAPS work the same way, but expire after more than a year.For example, if you think that PieMart (ticker: GOBBL), trading at $50 today, will soon be at $70, you might buy call options for $6 per share that let you buy the shares at $55. That will ultimately cost you $61 per share ($55 plus $6), netting you a $9-per-share profit but only if the stock hits your target before the expiration date. LEAPS, with their longer time frames, generally cost more than shorter-term options, but they can be more attractive as they give the underlying stock more time to move. Options are not for beginning investors, and many experienced investors steer clear, too.

G.D., onlineALots of cash does allow a company to take advantage of opportunities that arise, but too much cash can be unproductive and, arguably, even wasteful.Many successful companies will often keep small cash balances. They spend their cash for purposes such as paying dividends, expanding their businesses and acquiring other companies. If they suddenly need cash, they draw on their lines of credit. Meanwhile, a manageable amount of debt isnt necessarily bad. Indeed, if a company borrowed at a low rate and made great use of that money, its an effective strategy.Want more information about stocks?

Romeo Dear Romeo, Thats a tough one. Im not certain they would depreciate like a trailer, but I dont think they would go up in value much, either. Anytime theres a very limited demand for something, the price or value doesnt generally increase. And there are very few people looking to buy tiny homes. The tiny home movement is kind of a niche thing. Its a very narrow market, and something that doesnt have a lot of demand isnt going to appreciate.

Dave RamseyCEO of Ramsey SolutionsDAVE SAYS Dunn: Farm Bill gives certainty to producersFrom staff reportsWASHINGTON, D.C. Congressman Neal Dunn, a member of the House Agriculture Committee, released the following statement after the committee passed the 2018 Farm Bill: We need to give our producers confidence in a bright future, and I believe we did that today, said Dr. Dunn. The 2018 Farm Bill will give certainty to farmers, ranchers, and foresters across North Florida that we have their backs. From protecting crop insur ance to streamlining burdensome regulations, we are fixing the Farm Bill to protect and support the agriculture industry. Its disappointing that Democrats on the committee chose to play games today, endangering the farm and food bill. We all depend on a thriving agriculture industry and this Farm Bill works to ensure that we will continue to have safe and affordable food on our tables.Bill highlights:Reauthorizes the Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) options through 2023. Strengthens the farm safety net and protects crop insurance. Restores funding for vital tools for trade promotion and market development. Streamlines and reduces regulatory burdens. Improvements to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Dunn advocated for several issues that were included in the final bill, including: Trade policy advocacy for new technologies. Improving USDA record-keeping of dog importation into the United States. Increasing awareness regarding technology and food. Including an algae agriculture research program under the High Priority Research and Extension Initiatives section. Dunn Video imaging satellite venture gets backingBy DOMINIC GATESThe Seattle TimesSEATTLE Airbus, Bill Gates and Japanese billionaire Masayoshi Son have joined to back a spinoff from Bellevue, Wash.-based Intellectual Ventures that aims to launch a constellation of imaging satellites that will deliver real-time, continuous video of almost anywhere on Earth. Russell Hannigan, founder and chief executive of the new venture called EarthNow said realtime video will provide a leap beyond existing Earth observation satellites that provide still photos and video clips sometime after a user requests the images. With EarthNows constellation of satellites, you will see events unfold as they happen, he said. We are excited by the prospect of giving everyone a stunningly beautiful, real-time window on your world from space. No satellites have yet been built. EarthNow recently closed a first round of financing focused primarily on maturing the overall system design. Though the amount of funding was not disclosed, it includes investments and partnerships from an impressive list of satellite industry and tech-company heavyweights. EarthNows key partner is European aerospace giant Airbus, which proposes to mass-produce the satellites using production lines in Toulouse, France, and in Florida. Aside from Microsoft co-founder Gates and Son, also investing in EarthNow is Greg Wyler, founder and executive chairman of OneWeb, a large, still-nascent satellite venture that aims to provide broadband internet access globally and has attracted investment of nearly $2 billion. OneWebs initial fleet of nearly 900 satellites is also being built by Airbus. Son heads the Japanese conglomerate Softbank Group, which is also a financial backer of OneWeb. EarthNows satellites will be modified versions of the small, low-cost, high-performance models Airbus originally developed for OneWeb, which Hannigan in an interview called the Model T of spacecraft. The venture is affordable because Airbus and OneWeb have figured out how to mass-produce these satellites at low cost, he said. While the OneWeb satellites will carry a payload of communications software and electronics hardware, EarthNows payload will be video-imaging software and optical hardware. Hannigan said the key to EarthNows technology is that each individual satellite in a constellation of hundreds will have enormous processing power on board. That means that though each satellite will collect colossal quantities of data far too much to beam back to Earth in real time the software will be able to process it all onboard and focus on sending back to Earth only that part of it the user wants to see. He said the system has been validated in a lab setting, though not yet in space. The company foresees initial business coming from government and large businesses. As examples of applications, Hannigan listed monitoring of illegal fishing in the oceans; a warning system that can spot forest fires as soon as they ignite; mapping and guiding traffic flows through a smart city; and real-time media reports of events happening in remote sites. But eventually, Hannigan said, the goal is to develop a service that consumers can access to observe whats happening now on any part of the globe. You should be able to look around, to pan and zoom and explore the world for yourself in real time, he said. Thats the ultimate goal. The project was incubated by Intellectual Ventures, founded and led by Microsofts former chief technology officer, Nathan Myhrvold. His firm specializes in patenting technologies and bringing them to market. Hannigan said the company is for now still housed at the offices of Intellectual Ventures but is scouting for its own space, likely somewhere on the Eastside. He said a joint Airbus/ EarthNow team of about 25 to 30 people is currently working on the project, with about half in Toulouse and half in Bellevue. He said he expects to hire more people here after the next funding round. When its satellites are built, EarthNow will have to line up launch providers to get them into orbit and a ground network to receive and process the incoming video data. All that lies ahead. Were at the beginning phase, said Hannigan, declining to say when he expects the service to begin operating.EarthNows key partner is European aero space giant Airbus, which proposes to mass-produce the satellites using production lines in Toulouse, France, and in Florida.

4C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, APRIL 2228, 2018From UF/IFASGAINESVILLE A University of Florida student has been chosen as one of nine undergradu ate students to receive a research grant from the Weed Science Society of America. Current UF/IFAS College of Agricultural and Life Sciences senior Rachel Watson was awarded the $2,000 grant to continue her research on a potential biological control agent, psyllid Calophya latiforceps, which could be used to suppress the invasive Brazilian Pepper-tree. The tree species occupies an estimated 700,000 acres of land in Florida alone. Watsons research on the psyllid took place at the UF/ IFAS Indian River Research and Education Center in Ft. Pierce, Florida. UF/IFAS professor James Cuda has served as the sponsor of Watsons research. Watson also received guidance from Patricia Prade, a CALS doctoral student studying entomology and nematology. According to Prade, Watson has a knack for research and has been influential in the success of this project. Rachel is an organized, driven and hardworking student, Prade said. She is always open to learn new techniques, help others, adjust her ideas and bring new ideas to our research. Having her as a student was a mutualistic experi ence. I was able to help her with the knowledge I have acquired over the years, and she provided feedback that helped me improve my mentoring skills. As an undergraduate student, Watson had never written a grant proposal or created a budget for a project like this. Writing this grant is something that will help me professionally, Watson said. Whether it is graduate school, a research position or even an education position, having this grant proposal under my belt will be very beneficial for me. Growing up, Watson was convinced that science was not for her. With her mother as a biology teacher and her father as a civil engineer, she was determined to branch out from the STEM field. However, a curiosity and appreciation for the outdoors instilled in her by her father and three older brothers led Watson to look into science majors that would satisfy this interest. Watson began looking for science degree opportunities in CALS and stumbled upon the entomology and nematology major. She was immediately interested. Even as a freshman at UF, Watson was interested in volunteering as a research assistant. Through the entomology and nematology club and UF/IFAS associate professor Rebecca Baldwin, Watson was introduced to an opportunity to volunteer in Cudas lab. Three weeks into her freshman year, Watson began a position as a lab technician, which helped develop her love for research. Through the UF/ IFAS summer research internship program, Watson worked as a field research assistant in the Panamanian rainforest at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI) studying the Heliconia bug. This experience provided Watson with a better understanding of field, research and laboratory skills. In the summer of 2017, Watson took on a new research opportunity assisting with a study on the biological control of Hydrilla, an invasive aquatic plant known to cause significant environmental and economic harm in Florida. Through this research experience with UF/IFAS medical and veterinary entomology assistant research scientist Emma Weeks, Watson realized her interests in research and educating others about invasive species and biological control solutions. Watson presented research findings at the Southeastern Branch Conference of the Entomological Society of America. Watson believes that CALS has played a fundamental part in providing her with the opportunities to further her education through research and her readiness for a future career in biological control. I think CALS has given me tons of opportunities, Watson said. Being in entomology and nematology has provided me with a second home. Its just about having all these different people in CALS who have helped me further my career, individuals who want to see me succeed. Its nice knowing that I have people supporting me and watching me succeed. If I need help, they are right there.Invasive species are targets of UF student COURTESY UFRachel Watson, left, from Winter Haven, has been chosen as one of nine undergraduate students to receive a research grant from the Weed Science Society of America. Watson was awarded the $2,000 grant to continue her research on a potential biological control agent, psyllid Calophya latiforceps, which could be used to suppress the invasive Brazilian Pepper-tree. The tree species occupies an estimated 700,000 acres of land in Florida alone. Objects in mirror closer than they appear. Why?By BOB WEBERChicago TribuneQ: When was the right side mirror first used and when and why was the warning changed to objects in mirror may be closer than they appear? Which leads to another question: Why do they say may when that is how it was made? R.F., Grayslake, Ill. A: According to the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR 571.111, S5.4.2) Each convex mirror shall have permanently and indelibly marked at the lower edge of the mirrors reflective surface, in letters not less than 4.8 mm nor more than 6.4 mm high the words Objects in Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear. We dont know how may be sneaked in there. We are also not sure when the first right outside mirror appeared, but the left outside mirror became standard in the 1960s. We do know why objects appear larger: Convex lenses bend light. It is like looking through the wrong end of binoculars. Legend has it that the first rearview mirror was simply an ordinary, hand-held, household mirror. Q: When will the national motor vehicle safety folks recognize the significant number of accidents caused by the blinding headlights that have become popular in the last few years? The glare from headlights is particularly blinding. Additional lamps like fog lights should not be used as supplementary headlights. If they are, they should automatically turn off when opposing traffic comes in range. Am I the only adult driver that sees this as a problem? P.B., Philadelphia. A: Our eyes begin to degenerate at around 40 years old. As we age, glare becomes more of an issue. According to AAA: Senior drivers can face substantially increased risk, because of decreased visual distance and sensitivity to the contrast between darkness and bright lights along roadways. Difficulties like these are the most common reasons older drivers limit or regulate their own driving. Many senior drivers also find they just dont need to be driving at night as often as they used to and primarily drive during the day. This can result in driving under less stressful conditions, too. If you cannot avoid driving at night, there are several ways to manage the risks. AAA offers these tips: Adjust your speed to the reach of your headlights. Do not overdrive your headlights by driving at a speed that wouldnt allow you to stop for an obstacle at the far reaches of your headlights. Compensate for reduced visibility by decreasing your speed and increasing following distance to four or more seconds behind the car in front of you. Keep your eyes moving. Do not focus on the middle of the area illuminated by your headlights. Watch for sudden flashes of light at hilltops, around curves or at intersections, because these may indicate the presence of oncoming vehicles. Look at the sides of objects. In dim light during reduced visibility, focus on the edges or outlines of objects. Your eyes can pick up images more sharply this way than by looking directly at the object. Protect your eyes from glare. Prolonged exposure to glare from sunlight or headlights can temporarily affect your visibility at night. It can also lead to eyestrain and drowsiness. Wear good sunglasses on bright days and take them off as soon as the sun goes down. After steady daytime driving, rest awhile before you begin driving at night. At night, look to the center of your pathway and use the painted edge lines to guide your vehicle. Avoid being blinded by oncoming high beams. If the driver of an oncoming vehicle fails to dim the lights, look down toward the right side of the road to avoid being blinded. You should be able to see the edge of the lane or the painted edge line and stay on course until the vehicle passes.ABOUT THE WRITERBob Weber is a writer and mechanic who became an ASE-certified Master Automobile Technician in 1976.

Airline adopts tougher policy for emotional support animalsBy HUGO MARTINLos Angeles TimesResponding to a rash of incidents involving animals on planes, Alaska Airlines plans to impose new requirements for passengers flying with emotional support animals. Starting May 1, the Seattle-based carrier will require passengers who want to travel with emotional support animals to provide proof that the animal is healthy, well-behaved and is needed to support the flyer during the flight. The change comes soon after Delta and United Airlines both adopted similar requirements, which took effect March 1. Delta and Alaska both have cited a recent surge in incidents involving animals on planes. Delta said it adopted the new policy in response to an 84 percent increase in animal incidents since 2016, including animals urinating, defecating, biting, barking and lunging on planes. A Delta passenger was mauled by a 50-pound dog on a flight from Atlanta to San Diego last year. Alaska carries about 150 emotional support and service animals daily and has been noting problems almost weekly. We are making these changes now based on a number of recent incidents where the inappropriate behavior of emotional support animals has impacted and even injured our employees, other guests and service animals, Ray Prentice, Alaskas director of customer advocacy, said in a statement. The airline now requires that passengers flying with emotional support animals provide a letter from a mental health professional or medical doctor, affirming that the flyer needs the animal for support. Starting May 1, passengers must also print and fill out two additional forms from Alaskair.com. In one form, the passenger affirms that the animal is well-trained and that the passenger accepts liability for any injury or damage caused by the animal. Another form certifies that the animal is healthy. All three documents must be submitted 48 hours before flying. Emotional support animals can sit on the lap of a passenger or below a guests seat.

A theme park for grown-ups who love to driveBy RUSS MITCHELLLos Angeles TimesSAN FRANCISCO Last weekend, I drove to Los Angeles from my Bay Area home. My wife and 12-year-old daughter visited Disneyland. I headed to my ideal theme park: the Porsche Experience Center in Carson. There are no lines at the Porsche Experience Center. There are 77 shiny near-new Porsches, one of which was reserved for me: a beautiful cobalt blue 911 GTS. Anyone 21 or over with a drivers license valid in any state or foreign land plus $585 can do the same. (Different cars and packages are offered at different prices.) The moneys good for 90 minutes with a Porsche and private coach at what the company calls a -acre sports car playground. Theres a twisty-turny 1.3-mile handling circuit. Theres an acceleration straight that functions as a drag strip. Theres an ice hill, an off-road zone, a soaking-wet, slippery skid pad and more. My GTS rumbled at the starting line of the acceleration straight. I had the fully loaded model, with 450 horsepower, 405 pound-feet of torque, a 3.9-second zero-to-60-mph time and a price tag well north of $150,000. The base car comes with a manual shifter, but this one was equipped with the Porsche Doppelkupplung setup, which smoothly combines manual and automatic modes. The strip runs nearly a mile before reaching a 33 percent banked curve modeled after a freaky turn at the famed Nurburgring racetrack in Germany. My coach was an amiable young man named Ricky Downton. He grew up in a rural patch outside Atlanta fixing cars with his older brother. Its said that millennials arent into automobiles, but Downtons a reminder against generalizations. OK, were in launch mode, he shouted at me from the passenger seat. Press hard on the brake with your left foot. Push the gas pedal flat to the floor. Flat! I released the brake. The car rocketed forward. The track runs parallel to the 405, where traffic, of course, was crawling. G-forces thrust my back into the seat while the highway traffic blurred into gray mist in my peripheral vision. I heard Downton yelling at my right foot. Keep it flat! Keep it flat! My spirit was willing but my body betrayed me. A rush of adrenaline was accompanied by a tiny twinge of fear. Before I could beat it, my foot involuntary lifted itself a mere millimeter off the pedal for a nanosecond. I willfully mashed it down again, but that little twitch was enough to slow me considerably. How fast? I asked. A disappointing 110 mph. But a heart-pumping thrill ride nonetheless. On the handling circuit, it became clear that the Porsche Experience wasnt just a place to drive a hot car. In 90 minutes, you can learn to drive more like a pro and, if youre lucky enough to afford a Porsche, get a lot more out of what the car has to offer. Ive always thought of myself as a good driver. But my coach humbled me in no time. He took the wheel and rumbled along to give me a close look at the course, then again at high speed and with meticulous precision. As soon as it was my turn, I realized how much I had to learn. I hit the corners too fast. I hit the corners too slow. I hit the brakes too heavy, or too light or not quite at the right time. Same with the gas. I under-turned, and I over-turned. It was not a dorkish performance. A colleague whod been watching later said it looked like I knew what I was doing, and hes a guy who doesnt say such things to be nice. But the skill gap between Downton and me was immense. My biggest problem is a common one, even among sports car own ers, Downton told me. It involved my eyeballs. Instead of following the road hundreds of feet ahead where the twists and turns would be taking me, my eyes too often were drilled into the curve I was headed directly into. That forced me to brake too hard, adjust my steering to compensate, lose speed and look clumsy while I got back on track. In ball sports, when youre throwing or kicking, you look where you want the ball to go. Same in everyday driving. Most people, Downton said, stare at the car in front of them (when theyre not staring at their phone). Its especially true in places such as Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco and Silicon Valley, where commuter traffic is slow and dense. Theyre all looking at the bumpers of the car in front of them, he said. Youve got to train yourself to pick up your eyes, look whats happening ahead of you. Whether on the track or the highway, he said, Im always looking ahead, always planning. If youre reacting to brake lights in front of you, youre not really prepared. Simply by raising my eyes, I improved my circuit performance considerably, moving through it smoother, and faster, with more confidence. The eye trick was crucial on the kick plate, as well. The kick plate leads into a skid pad, a wide epoxy-treated surface, kept soaking wet and super slick. You approach at 20 to 30 mph, and a horizontal plate underneath the car kicks it randomly to the left or right. The car quickly seems to lose gravity, and youre floating out of control. The key is to look where you want the car to go, even if you have to twist your head backward, and quickly move the steering wheel that way. You need to prepare for it. The move is not intuitive. These sorts of lessons are available at driving schools across the coun try, of course. The skills learned here are transferable to the public highways and, used responsibly, make for safer driving. But the center is meant more than anything to boost the Porsche brand and sell more cars. At the low friction circle, Downton showed off the Porsche Stability Management system. The circles surface is similar to the skid pads. Try to speed around it, and most people will spin out of control. Turn it on, and you stick to the slimy surface almost like youre on railroad tracks. Some people like big touch screens in their cars with video gamestyle Easter eggs. Some like technology that improves a cars driving performance. Theres room in the market for both. Opened in 2016 on an old golf course at a cost of $60 million, the Porsche center is one of five worldwide, joining Atlanta; Leipzig, Germany; Silverstone, England; and Le Mans, France. Shanghai is next on the list. We live in a branded world, and theres more at the experience center than driving tracks. Theres a Porsche store on site, of course, with Porsche hats and shirts and sunglasses; a cafe; and a high-end restaurant called 917 run by chef Matt Lee, former executive chef at the Getty, who serves food thats beautiful and delicious. The centers lobby serves as a museum showing off historic Porsches, including a version of the famed 1,580-horsepower 1973 Porsche 917/30 race car, the one with the gigantic rear spoiler wing that looms over the vehicle like some comic book creation. Behind a glass wall, visitors can watch race cars being tweaked by workers at Porsche Motorsport North America, a racing division of Porsche. A simulator lab features a row of high-end arcade-style driving stations that digitally replicate more than 20 of the most famous racetracks around the world and a similar number of Porsche models rendered to be true to their individual performance charac teristics, including engine sounds. The center is able to host private events for parties of five to 500. More than 60,000 visitors showed up last year, Porsche said. California is one of Porsches top markets. The state accounts for 10 percent of the U.S. population but 24.7 percent of Porsches U.S. car sales (27 percent for the 911). If it were a country, California would represent Porsches fifth-larg est market. The metropolitan L.A. market alone would count as the sixth, said Klaus Zellmer, chief executive of Porsche Cars North America. Californians embrace design and innovation and the pleasure of driving these cars, Zellmer said. In this case, I have to agree.MYUNG J.

I think its a great time of the year for it and the participation level has been more than I expected. So, Im expecting good things from the event. People attending the event can expect to see some new homes, new ideas in homes a lot of stuff has transpired from homebuilding 10 years ago, Zecher said. Some things are better than they were 10 years ago. Were trying to the houses so theyre more energy efficient and that translates to more efficient appliances, windows, doors, insulation and of course, overall features as far as house is designed and the functionality of living space. The Parade of Homes at one time was an annual event, but during the economic downturn, the event went away for a decade. The last Parade of Homes event was held in Columbia County in 2008. The Lake City Reporter and Currents magazine once again were selected as the exclusive partner to market the Parade of Homes event to the community in print and digital media. Our local economy continues to gain momentum and new-home construction is thriving in Columbia County, said Todd Wilson, publisher of the Lake City Reporter and Currents magazine. This Parade of Homes event has created a buzz in our community and people are talking about it positively and with anticipation. We hope that everyone will make a point to come out and take a look at some of these amazing new homes our talented local builders have con structed. Zecher said hes heard lots of positive feedback about reviving the event. Theres a good buzz around town from our vendors, suppliers, subcontractors and anybody related to the construction industry, he said. Everybody seems real excited about the upcoming event. Visitors to the Parade homes will see the newest innovations in new-home construction, including the newest building trends and designs. Builders today are using many upgrades that make new construction very energy efficient, including high-technology windows and doors, insulation and many other upgrades. Most of the new homes on display also are furnished with top-of-the-line energy efficient appliances. The homes on the tour will include a wide range of styles, sizes and models. There will be starter homes with three bedrooms and two baths to four-bedroom dream houses. The new homes also will feature the latest in kitchen and bathroom designs, as well as cutting edge home flooring trends. Zecher said hes excited about the building climate in Columbia County for home builders. I think the home building climate is very good, he said. If a builders not busy right now, somethings wrong. The building industry as a whole seems to be very good right now, there are a lot of inquires and people are wanting new homes. Zecher said through an event like this, consumers and builders alike should realize the value of doing business with or joining the Columbia County Builders Association. The builders who are members of the CCBA are good, reliable builders and they do good, quality work, Zecher said. When builders join, we check their licenses and make sure they are reputable. Being involved with CCBA, there is strength in numbers in our industry locally. The local CCBA provides an avenue to search local builders who are licensed and insured and this is very important in this day and time.

LIFE Lake City Reporterwww.lakecityreporter.comSunday, April 22, 2018Section D Story ideas? Contact Editor Robert Bridges754-0428rbridges@lakecityreporter.com The first Taste Buddies was published Sept. 25, 2011. In the seven years that Ive been writing Taste Buddies reviews I have only written positive columns as I only review the restaurants that I like. Restaurants that I dont like, for whatever reason, I dont review. This practice has been in place from the beginning, as I consider myself a reviewer and not a critic. So after seven years and a lot of dining experiences Ive decided I can write another negative Taste Buddies. In writing this I hope that restaurant owners and managers will read this and consider taking a good look at their own practices and the training of their staff and make sure they arent guilty of these practice. I first wrote an article similar to this one a little more than two years ago but thought it might be time to revisit the same issues. So, yes, some of you will remember this and wonder why I redid it. Sadly, things havent changed that much so wanted to remind our restaurant friends that they need to continue working on these with their staff Kimberlynne and I devised this list together as she often joins me on my Taste Buddie adventures and we share these experiences together. This gives us a teenager and an adult viewpoint. 1. When I order my meat well done I really mean well done. This seems to be a difficult way for many restaurants to cook meat. More than half the time I cut into my steak and it is some shade of red and I have to send it back. It happens so frequently that I just ask the waitress to wait until I cut into it and check before she leaves. 2. When I have to return my meat to be further cooked the person or persons Im eating with either wait(s) until my food is returned or I insist that they start eating then they are usually finished by the time mine returns. Please get it right the first time. While Im just beginning to eat, my partners plates, etc. are whisked away making me feel like I now need to rush my meal. Dont remove those dishes until we are all finished, please. 3. Fast food restaurants all want us to bus our own tables after we finish. So often when you go to discard your empty containers, you find the trash bins full or overflowing. I think restaurants should be more conscientious about emptying trash bins. 4. Speaking of cleaning, I hate it when you are still eating and the staff begins to vacuum or sweep. Sorry, you really need to wait until customers have finished. Go clean the bathrooms, which I can guarantee need it. Its also just wrong not keeping the tables clean. Sticky table tops are a sign to me that cleanliness may not be top of the list at this restaurant. 5. Your meal is served and your server disappears and you need her/him to bring you something. It may be as simple as I need jelly for my toast or we need coffee refills. You end up tagging another waitress to help. Why? 6. Cant answer why this next happens: you order your food and ask that they substitute a side dish and you are told they cant do that. For example, when you were there previously and asked if you could have coleslaw instead of French fries they said yes you could. Now you cant. Guess the customer isnt always right. I guarantee you that if you ask to speak to the manager about this they will do it. Just aggravating. Give the wait staff the authority to substitute. 7. Its important for wait staff to know the menu and how dishes are prepared and with what ingredients. So many times if you ask these questions they have to check and come back and tell you the answer. I love it when they have the specials written on their pad and can actually read the food description. 8. Its just wrong when you order an appetizer and it comes at the same time your meal is delivered. Dont need to say anymore about this but its a HUGE no-no in my book. 9. This one often happens when you order iced tea: I order unsweetened tea and Kimberlynne orders sweet. I then dump sweetener in my tea and discover they gave me sweet tea, which is now extra sweet. Not major, but annoying. 10. I really think it is rude to bring the check while we are in the middle of a meal. If Im in a hurry I will explain when I order and ask that my check be delivered with my meal. Otherwise, I want to enjoy my meal and not feel rushed to eat, pay and leave. 11. You receive your check while you are still eating, you dont say anything and then they come back to see if you need change, and you havent even looked at it. OK, now Im going to say something and it will usually end on a bad note. 12. So you pay your check with cash and they return with your change and there are no $1.00s in the change, which suggests they think that the tip should be in $5s. I may have wanted to leave $6 so now I have to ask for them to make more change as I have no $1.00 bills. I always pay with cash so this often happens. 13. Then there is the music and the televisions. A meal is usually spent with another person and having a conversation is in order. Music that is too loud is distracting and talking is difficult. Keep it down, please. 14. You walk into a restaurant and its practically empty. The person who checks you in and takes you to your table will make you stand there while they ponder the computer screen trying to assign us a table. The place is half empty, cant we be seated and then they assign the table rather than just leave us standing there? Its different when its busy and tables are filled. I get that. Just asking. This is enough whining and complaining. I now feel like I can go back to being a Taste Buddie with all this off my mind. I am continually gratified by the encouraging remarks and comments I receive from total strangers and friends about my reviews. I thank you all. You inspire and motivate me to continue.

Her column appears on a biweekly basis.Taste Buddies pet peeves Heres an update on the original list from 2015.TASTE BUDDIES Genie NormanTasteBuddiesLakeCity@gmail.com TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICETaste Buddies pet peeves include having to send meat back to be fully cooked. Plus (below) waiting too long for a table in a half-empty eatery.

Refuse to let your emotions take over, leaving you in a precarious position. Say less and take the time to come up with a solid objective that will make sense as well as a difference. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): It will ease your stress and add to your comfort if you bring about positive changes at home. Love and romance will encourage a healthy attitude. Make the most of what you have. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Refuse to let anyone push you in a direction you dont want to go. Sit tight and see what unfolds before you make a move. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Dont feel you have to make a snap decision because someone else does. Bide your time and put your energy into personal pleasure and self-improvements. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A change to your personal identity, records or financial standing will leave you questioning what to do next. Look at your options, and youll find a way to cut corners. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Keep your expenses down. Home improvements should be limited to whats necessary. Taking care of someone elses personal affairs will be taxing. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A positive approach to what you are trying to accomplish will help you reverse someones initial rejection. Offer incentives and be willing to make adjustments that are more acceptable to the people you need on your side. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Dont overreact or make rash decisions. Emotional situations will build and take over, causing a problem between a friend or relative and you. Make a point to get along and to listen to what others want; you will find a solution. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A change at home will bring you joy. Host a small gathering or make an effort to revise situations that are causing you undue stress. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Put your energy into something constructive, like improving your surroundings or living arrangements. Consider doing something that will encourage peace and love or a better relationship with the people you care about most. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Put more effort into personal observation and self-improvement. Deal with bad habits or unsavory situations involving a friend or relative. Dont leave matters to fester and grow into something uncontrollable. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Dont put up with anyone acting erratic or causing difficulties. Make your position clear; refuse to be dragged into someone elses melodrama. Focus on personal gains, physical improvements and reuniting with people with whom you have something in common. DEAR ABBY: After a lot of talk and no action, I finally made the decision to further my education with a masters degree. At present, I have one more required undergraduate credit to complete at the local university. My husband and I are excited that I finally made the decision and am following through. The problem is my mother-in-law. She has told everyone I have been accepted into the masters program at a prestigious school in my area -one I am HOPING to get into. Abby, we recently threw a surprise party for her mother and everyone was congratulating me. I was embarrassed and had to correct them, saying that was my hope, but I havent yet applied. I have asked her to please stop, but it continues. I know shes excited and proud of me, and for that I am thankful, but now Im incredibly nervous that if I dont get in Ill look like a failure. Suggestions? -NERVOUS IN THE EAST DEAR NERVOUS: I am unsure why your mother-in-law would continue to spread information she knows isnt true. Perhaps its wishful thinking. If you tell her that what shes doing only increases the pressure on you, she may pipe down, but dont count on it. Because you cant control what comes out of her mouth -and the cat is out of the bag, so to speak -you have two choices. Gain admission to that masters program or, if that doesnt turn out to be possible, level with the people who prematurely congratulate you and explain that your MIL jumped the gun and acceptance wasnt a sure thing. The only thing you SHOULDNT do is allow yourself to be embarrassed about it. DEAR ABBY: A recent death in my family has affected me greatly. Her love for others was boundless; her enthusiasm for life unparalleled. Her sense of humor was remarkable. When my spirits were down, she greeted me with love every day and was a positive influence. Im speaking about my labradoodle, Molly. I was lucky enough to have her in my life for nine years. My problem is, people dont get it. Molly was family. I loved her, she died and Im heartbroken. Im being told to get over it -she was just a dog. I understand that some people dont like dogs and thats OK. What I dont get is that they cant seem to grasp that I have experienced a great loss. Am I being silly? I feel like I have lost a child. Your input would be greatly appreciated. -GRIEVING IN NEW MEXICO DEAR GRIEVING: You are not being silly. Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your precious Molly. Unless someone has experienced what you have, it can be difficult to empathize. Because you are grieving, I hope you will reach out to Mollys veterinarian and ask if he or she knows about a support group you can join to help you through this difficult period. Being able to discuss all of your feelings with people who have suffered the same loss can be healing.

Smoked Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Honey Barbecue SauceRecipe courtesy of the National Honey Board Servings: 8-10Pork Rub: 1/4 cup sugar 1 tablespoon chili powder 2 teaspoons paprika 1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder 1 1/4 teaspoons onion powder 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1 teaspoon pepper 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 bone-in pork shoulder roast (4 pounds) 2 cups hickory chips 1 cup water 1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce 1 1/2 cups honey 1 cup ketchup 8-10 rolls chopped jalapeno peppers (optional) chopped onion (optional) chopped pickles (optional) To make Pork Rub: Stir together sugar, chili powder, paprika, seasoned salt, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, cumin, pepper and cayenne pepper. Massage Pork Rub over surface of pork and let stand 30 minutes. Soak hickory chips in water; drain well. Wrap chips in foil; punch holes in foil and place on top of gas grill set on high. When chips begin to smoke, place pork on grill and cook until well browned on all sides with lid closed, about 30-45 minutes. Heat oven to 300 F. Remove pork from grill and place in turkey-size oven bag set in large, shallow baking dish. Add water and seal well; pierce bag several times with small knife. Cook 3-3 1/2 hours, or until meat is tender and pork bone can be removed easily. Remove from oven. Remove bone and set aside until cool enough to handle. Shred meat into small pieces, removing fat. Add juices from cooking bag, skimming off excess fat. In separate saucepan, stir together barbecue sauce, honey and ketchup, cooking until hot and honey has dissolved. Stir most of sauce into shredded pork and mix well. Serve on rolls and drizzle with remaining sauce. Top with jalapenos, onions and pickles, if desired.A Game-Day WinnerGame time is no time to mess around when it comes to fast, savory snacks.
