After bouncing around several jobs, Bochette bought a house in Lake City in 2009. Soon to be 62, his property portfolio has expanded to include three duplexes and a second single-family house, all of which he rents out and pays property taxes on. But do I have a say at City Hall about how theyre taxing me? he said. No, Ive got no power at all. The only voice I have is the voice thatll listen to me. The voice that can vote. So when Bochette learned about Amendment 4, he regained hope that he could finally feel like a full-fledged member of the community again. Im a second-class citizen, and thats the mentality that it pushes you into, he said.

The Fort White Middle School sixth grade science class, under the guidance of teacher Trini Johannesen, took its concerns to town hall and the local chamber of commerce. They wanted the town to resume its defunct community recycling program and they stated their case with presentations on its importance through appearances at the meetings of both. There concerns were heard and the town will soon resume the recycling program, benefitting Fort White citizens and Columbia County residents for miles and keeping tons of trash out of the local landfill. Its very instrumental that they were a part of it, said Fort White Mayor Demetric Jackson. He said Johannesens students came to the council meeting and gave the council members letters urging they take up the project. I think it kind of help pushed the ball to move a little faster, Jackson said. Since then he said the county has provided the dumpsters and the city has provided the location for the program.

The cooperative once again reminds its residential and commercial members that it does not make phone calls to collect on past due bills or offer unsolicited services. Several members in Clay County have reported receiving a flyer in the mail that says Clay Electric is offering rebates for free attic insulation. The mailer states that a free inspection is required and comes with a business reply envelope. This offer is not from Clay Electric. Another member in Keystone Heights received a local phone call that identified itself on the screen as originating from Clay Electric, but was not a number belonging to the co-op. Clay Electric encourages its members to be very suspicious of anyone who contacts them and claims he or she represents the co-op and wants to offer a service or be paid for an overdue bill. The cooperative does not offer services or collect past due amounts in this manner. Clay Electric informs its members of services in official publications and sends a reminder letter for past due bills. If you are at all suspicious of someone claiming theyre with the power company, hang up and call Clay Electric at 800224-4917. We especially urge our members to ignore suspicious requests for personal information such as bank account numbers, credit card numbers, user names and passwords, or Social Security numbers, said Derick Thomas, director of the co-ops Member & Public Relations Department. Members should not share confidential personal information over the phone. T he flyer at right is a recent example of an offer that was mailed to co-op members that is not from Clay Electric, according to the company.

T UESDAY, AP RIL 24, 2018 LOCAL LAKE CITY R E PORTER 3A THESE STATEMENTS HAVE NOT BEEN EVALUATED BY THE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION. THIS PRODUCT IS NOT INTENDED TO DIAGNOSE, TREAT, CURE OR PREVENT ANY DISEASE. RESULTS MAY VARY FROM PERSON TO PERSON. NO INDIVIDUAL RESULT SHOULD BE SEEN AS TYPICAL. Theres no denying that people mostly women are on a mission to discover the best way to eliminate ne lines and wrinkles permanently. The $14 billion dollars spent on aesthetic procedures in 2016 alone is a clear indication of that fact. But now science appears to be offering a simpler solution. Its a special delivery technology adapted for skincare that gets superior results. Known as advanced liposome technology, this powerful distribution system ensures that vital nutrients are delivered exactly where your skin needs them the most, providing your skin with maximum anti-aging benets. New Age-Defying Dermal Filler Cream in High DemandAl Sears, MD, of Palm Beach, Florida, recently released an anti-aging cream that adapts this breakthrough medical technology into the realm of skincare, and hes struggling to keep up with consumer demand. Dr. Sears is South Floridas leading anti-aging pioneer. He has authored over 500 reports, scientic papers, and books on anti-aging. A frequent lecturer at global anti-aging conferences, Dr. Sears recently spoke at the WPBF 25 Health & Wellness Festival featuring Dr. Oz, along with special guest, Suzanne Somers. Thousands of people were in attendance as Dr. Sears discussed his latest anti-aging breakthroughs. This powerful cream, known as Restore, keeps selling out faster than its produced and people are raving about the effect its having on their skin. Within a few minutes of applying the cream, it visibly plumps out the under-eye area and my cheeks as well as those annoying lines that deepen as we age between the nose and lips. It also felt like it was tightening and smoothing my skin at the same time. I denitely feel I look younger whenever I use it, said Amy B., of Montville, New Jersey. The lines around my mouth and eyes are lled in and my skin is tightened. I love having younger-looking skin, so I will continue using Restore raves Cathy C., of Florida. The best part is that this cream has no adverse side effects, doesnt require a doctors visit or prescription, and is 100% natural. Powerful Delivery System Ensures Nutrients Penetrate Deep into Your SkinThe dermis is the underlying layer of skin that supplies nourishment and oxygen, and removes waste. In other words, its responsible for keeping your outer layer of skin healthy. Liposome technology is designed to support and nourish this deeper layer of skin by delivering nutrients directly to it. All of Restores powerful ingredients are encapsulated in a liposome shell an organic container that carries the beautifying agents deep into the skin cells, explained Dr. Sears. Restores liposome shell is composed of phosphatidylcholine or PC for short. While cell membranes repel water, they absorb PC because theyre actually made of it. As a result, Restore is delivered deep into the cell for maximum rming and volume. When you apply liposome cream to your face, the liposomes in the skin cream work their way inside your skin, fuse with the skin cell membranes and then release their contents directly to the cells. Regular skin creams dont have this capability. A Formula Designed to Take 10 Years off Your Face in Just 10 MinutesOnce its penetrated the deeper layer of skin, Restore releases a unique blend of botanicals, vitamins and essential oils that reduces the appearance of ne lines and wrinkles, gives skin a more even tone, and moisturizes the interior layers of your dermal cells, rming and plumping your skin. Restores rst skin-enhancing agent is Madonna lily leaf stem cell extract. It helps produce an eventoned complexion. In a clinical study reported in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology participants treated with this extract for 28 days showed improvements in skin luminance and tone around the eyes. Restore is also loaded with vitamin C, which British researchers have found reduces both wrinkles and dryness. In Restore we use magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, a more stable form of vitamin C that doesnt break down in liquid as does ordinary C, explains Dr. Sears. That means the antioxidant molecules stay intact within your skin cells where they can prevent damage from dangerous free radicals. This powerful formula also features guarana seed extract, coenzyme Q10, and avocado oil. Japanese researchers have also found that coenzyme Q10 supports production of the thin membrane that separates layers of your skin, and French studies have shown that avocado oil improves skin cell metabolism and enhances skin thickness. Where To Get RestoreRight now the only way to get this powerful age-defying delivery technology is through Dr. Sears. To get life-changing results like Amy and Cathy, buyers should contact the Sears Health Hotline at 1-888-362-6921 within the next 48 hours. We simply dont have enough supply to get Restore shipped directly to stores, said Dr. Sears. The hotline allows us to ship the product directly to the customer the one who really wants it. Dr. Sears feels so strongly about this product, that he offers a 100% money-back guarantee on every order. Just send back the bottle and any unused product within 90 days, and Ill send you your money back, said Dr. Sears. The hotline will be taking orders for the next 48 hours. After that, the phone number will be shut down to allow them to restock. Call 1-888-362-6921 to secure your limited supply of Restore. You dont need a prescription, and those who call in the rst 24 hours qualify for a signicant discount. To take advantage of this great offer use Promo Code NPRSAPR18077 when you call in.

We are going to be opening our Fort White Community Recycling Center in the very near future, said Johannesen. Our council and chamber are looking at what days and what times it can be open during the week and soon we will be advertising and we are urging people to start using our recycling center. She recently took their message on the road to the Alligator Lake Spring Festival with a few of her students manning a booth and giving talks on the importance of reducing, reusing and recycling. Before going to town hall with the request they first stopped by the Fort White Chamber of Commerce to rally for support. The kids did a great presentation on the importance of recycling, said Fort White Chamber President Scott Thomason. Its definitely happening and its going to be good for the community. He said it had been close to a decade since the town had similar facilities that were discontinued because of misuse and improper dumping at the site. The chamber agreed to help staff the location, which is slated for the site of the old town dump off State Road 47. Thomason said he expected the site to begin taking recyclable products within a month, but they were currently coordinating with the town over a few details of its initial operations. Were working with the town to determine the best time. The town wants to help out too, Thomason said. The chamber and the town have, the last two years, have really been working well together to better the community. Jackson said they are planning a ribbon cutting ceremony with Johannesens class to commemorate the programs inauguration. FWContinued From 1A with newly licensed teenagers and get them some foundation and basics that will last them the rest of their lives, he said. Smith said statistics show that 25-30 percent of newly licensed drivers will have an accident or crash within their first year of driving. We dont want to have our teenagers to be statistics, he said. We want to give them the equipment and tools for them to go out and drive defensively and safely. Sgt. Sean Sikes, Columbia County Sheriffs Office training coordinator, said the students participated in a classroom curriculum, learned how to inspect their vehicles tires, brakes and fluids and learned how it feels to be in a low impact crash by riding in the Seat Belt Convincer. The students also drove their vehicles on different road courses in the schools parking lot, focusing on varied driving scenarios. They also rode a pedal cart through a prepared course while wearing goggles designed to simulate operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. This is going to give these drivers some necessary skills, for offensive and defensive driving, if they get exposed to hazards in the roadways or other motorists comes into their path, Sikes said. This gives that training to evade and use evasive techniques to hopefully avoid that crash. This is not to teach them to drive, but to get them supplemental experience.

D on Meyer is pictured with Landon Graham, who is buckled into the S ea t Belt Convincer with students looking on and Murray S mith, CCS O public information officer, taking photos. T he device simulates the impact of a low speed traffic crash.If approved by 60 percent of Florida voters in November, the measure will automatically restore the voting rights of felons upon completion of their sentence excluding murderers and sex offenders. The front-running Republican gubernatorial candidate, Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, told the Tampa Bay Times in January he opposes the measure and would only consider automatic restoration of voting rights for nonviolent offenders. Nonviolent offenders ought to have an easier path to restoration of rights, Putnam told the newspaper. Violent criminals do not deserve the same. Terrorism, manslaughter and kidnapping are treated as nonviolent crimes in this proposal, and thats not something I can support. Bochette, who describes himself as a conservative activist, said his conviction stemmed from a barroom brawl in 1996 in St. Augustine. He said he was with some women at the time when a group of men started harassing them. The law was you could not exceed you could only meet the force that was brought against you, he said. Well, I used a beer mug on them boys. I guess that exceeded the force, so they found me guilty. He served 47 months on a five-year sentence for aggravated assault. Since the crime involved violence, Bochette had to go before the states clemency board to get his voting rights restored. The board responded in 2006, acknowledging the case was under review. But theres been no progress since, he said. Nothing happens, it just stops right there, he said. Ive called several times, and Ive checked regularly. Three years ago, Bochette said he even introduced himself to Gov. Rick Scott during a Republican fundraising dinner and made his case. Scott told Bochette to keep trying to go through the clemency board, of which the governor is a member. Its a very difficult task to accomplish, he said. Because your words are falling on deaf ears. Though hes hoping for good news about Amendment 4 in November, Bochette said hes prepared for the worst. The population is of the mind that all felons are bad people, he said. Sylvester Warren, who returned to Lake City after getting out of prison three years ago, seemed to be more confident the amendment will pass. Im extremely optimistic, he said. Warren was sentenced to 22 years in 2009 on a federal charge of conspiracy to traffic cocaine. Changes in the law reduced the sentence, and he ended up serving eight years at multiple facilities in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. Warren said he hasnt even applied to have his voting rights restored because statistics show most attempts are unsuccessful. Ive looked at the numbers, seen how many people the governor allowed their rights to be restored, Warren said. Warren said he wont feel whole again until he can participate in the democratic process. So many people before me fought to have this right, he said. Ive served my punishment. I havent been able to affect change in ways I would have liked, he added. In March, U.S. District Judge Mark Walker ordered Gov. Scott to overhaul the states system of restoring voting rights for felons by April 26. Walkers ruling described the system as fatally flawed, saying it gives the clemency board, which is made up of the governor and his cabinet, unfettered discretion over cases. RIGHTSContinued From 1AT he fr ont-running Republican gubernatorial candidate, Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam P utnam, told the Tampa Bay Times in January he opposes the measure and would only consider automatic restoration of voting rights for nonviolent offenders.

Former NFL star and Washington State Cougar Steve Gleason has made an even bigger impact off the field, as an advocate for health research and helping individuals with neuromuscular diseases live full lives. U.S. Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell want to show this Spokane native how proud his home state is of his accomplishments by nominating him for a Congressional Gold Medal, the highest civilian honor Congress can bestow. Previous recipients of the award include Thomas Edison, Jonas Salk and Jesse Owens. Its a lofty group of scientists, athletes and other luminaries. Gleason belongs in that company for changing countless lives through the Gleason Initiative Foundation and through the example he has set as a man living well despite health challenges. Steve is an inspiration to all of us. His perseverance, determination and unbreakable spirit have helped the world understand ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) and how it impacts people and their families every day, wrote Cantwell. Before Congress can award a Congressional Gold Medal, both the House and Senate must pass legislation, which then must be signed by the president. The award for Gleason should not be a heavy lift. After playing both baseball and football at WSU and helping the Cougars football team advance to the 1997 Rose Bowl, Gleason was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts and went on to play seven seasons with the New Orleans Saints. In 2011, he was diagnosed with ALS and began the biggest fight of his life. At the time of his diagnosis, Gleason said there will be No White Flags, a saying that has become his mantra and the rallying cry of the Gleason Initiative Foundation. His foundation helps provide leading edge technology, equipment and services to people with neuromuscular diseases or injuries. He has given hundreds of people with ALS life experiences they didnt think possible. Steve Gleason has set a wonderful example, turning his fame and drive toward the goal of researching a way to end ALS. He is a man worth honoring with a Congressional Gold Medal. Seattle TimesLast week, the world commemorated International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Much of the news this year focused on a new national survey, conducted by Schoen Consulting for the Claims Conference, to assess just how much Americans, especially young Americans, know about the Holocaust today. The results were disheartening and disturbing. People are beginning to forget. But as I reviewed the survey, I found myself remembering another time and place when an old man who had suffered much passed on his story, and with it a special responsibility to a teenage boy who had suffered not at all. That boy was me. I called him always Mr. Michele. I never knew his first name. He owned a popular dry cleaning shop on the Upper West Side of New York where I grew up, and for three years, Mr. Michele was my boss. Every day after school, I delivered cleaning to a raft of his clients, from Robert Oppenheimer and other notables to the profs at Columbia just across the street. He and I had a typical employee-employer relationship, but we couldnt have been more different. I was a teenager with all the trials and tribulations that brings, and he was a quiet and serious man, very businesslike with a remarkable sense of responsibility. And he had numbers tattooed on his arm. I never asked about his past. He didnt talk about it, but I knew what those numbers meant, having lost distant family to the Holocaust. When I was 17, I moved to Ohio for my senior year. I gave Mr. Michele notice, and on my last day, something quite extraordinary happened that stays with me even now. I returned from my final deliveries, and as I walked back into the store, Mr. Michele sat in a chair on one side of the counter. Another had been placed directly across, and there, sitting in front of each chair, was a small glass of scotch. He asked me to join him, and for the next hour, Mr. Michele told me his story. He talked to me about the time he spent in the camp, the loss of family and freedom, and how important it was that I know what had happened to him and so many others. That I should never forget. All these years later, I now understand that when Mr. Michele decided to tell me about his life, he didnt really mean it to be about him but about the millions who didnt survive. He wanted me to remember the scale and the meaning of the Holocaust. The specifics of his life were less important to him than the context it would give me. He did this so that one day, if the time ever came again if the world needed to be reminded of the cost to our humanity when we do nothing in the face of evil I would be armed with the truth of his story. Perhaps that time has come. This is what the Holocaust Knowledge and Awareness Study found: One in 10 Americans and over one-fifth of millennials (22 percent) either havent heard of the Holocaust or arent sure if they have heard of it. Over 40 percent of those responding did not know what Auschwitz was, while 66 percent of millennials were unable to identify this symbol of the Holocaust. Forty-five percent of all U.S. adults couldnt name a concentration camp, although there were more than 40,000 concentration camps and ghettos in Europe. Even though at least 3 million Polish Jews were killed, only 37 percent could identify Poland as a country where the Holocaust took place. The study did have some encouraging findings as well. Ninety-three percent of people believe that all students should learn about the Holocaust in school. And theres the disconnect. Half the respondents (52 percent) said lessons about the Holocaust are mostly accurate but could be better. I would suggest a lot better. When we see data like this, it says something is terribly wrong with history education in America. It shows us why a liberal arts education still matters not just to make sure individuals are literate in history, which is important, but to ensure an informed electorate with the perspective and context to understand the outcome of remaining silent in the face of oppression. The issue may not be how we are teaching history as much as what we are teaching and calling history. There is only so much time in a classroom, so many pages in a history book. When a history text gives significantly more space to The Disco Generation or Steven Spielberg than to the Apollo mission to the moon, somethings wrong. That was my sons 11th grade American history book. In some ways, the criticism of todays news coverage applies to the teaching of history as well. How media covers news is important, but just as important are the editorial decisions that define what is news, what the public gets to see and hear. The same kind of editorial decision-making that shapes news coverage is not dissimilar from the choices made by school boards or textbook publishers or university professors whose curricula and content decisions shape young minds and, de facto, the future. The Holocaust survey should be a wake-up call for everyone concerned that the past can be prologue. It was for me. This column is for you, Mr. Michele. We wont forget.

Amendment 4 which would automatically restore felons voting rights upon release from prison is todays focus. After that there are 12 more to come during the next weeks and months, including the oddly-bundled offerings from the Florida Constitution Revision Committee. Were starting early because theres a lot to cover this time around and we want you to have plenty of time to give each proposition careful thought.

Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY TODAY IN HISTORY On this date: In 1800, Congress approved a bill establishing the Library of Congress. In 1898, Spain declared war on the United States. (The United States responded in kind the next day.) In 1915, in whats considered the start of the Armenian genocide, the Ottoman Empire began rounding up Armenian political and cultural leaders in Constantinople. In 1916, some 1,600 Irish nationalists launched the Easter Rising by seizing several key sites in Dublin. (The rising was put down by British forces five days later.) In 1932, in the Free State of Prussia, the Nazi Party gained a plurality of seats in parliamentary elections. In 1947, novelist Willa Cather, author of My Antonia, died in New York at age 73. In 1953, British statesman Winston Churchill was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II. Holocaust is fading away TODAY IN HISTORY No white flags, says Steve Gleason David Winston is the president of The Winston Group and a longtime adviser to congressional Republicans. He previously served as the director of planning for House Speaker Newt Gingrich. David WinstonCQ-Roll CallThere is only so much time in a classroom, so many pages in a history book. When a history text gives significantly more space to The Disco Generation or Steven Spielberg than to the Apollo mission to the moon, somethings wrong. That was my sons 11th grade American history book.Making driver safety fun Making driver Somehow, the Columbia County Sheriffs Office managed to do just that, based on the grins our reporter saw Saturday in Fort White (See story, Page 1A). Driver safety may be the most important lesson a teenager can learn, but all too often its either rote or so deadly serious that teens get nervous and distracted. It is deadly serious business, of course, but if you can get them smiling, the lesson goes down a lot easier. Nice job, gentlemen. We look forward to the continuation and eventual expansion of this program.

Dylan Jarrett Norris, 25, was jailed with a $5,000 bond on a burglary charge of entering an unoccupied structure unarmed. Statements from the victim in the report said he caught Norris leaving his residence, binoculars in hand. He told me that he came home and caught a white male with tattoos on his neck carrying a pair of gold and silver binoculars out of his residence, the investigating deputy wrote. [The victim] said that male was high and said he was sorry. [He] said he regained the binoculars and he fled the property. [He] said that the male went to the residence next door. According to the deputys account, Norris repeatedly denied entering the home. He said Norris told him he was only on the neighbors back porch. Dylan said that he found the binoculars outside and used them to look for his friends house, the report said. Norris BURGLARYContinued From 1A todays Lake City Reporter or at www.lakecityreporter. com. The building industry has picked up and the real estate industry in general has lost its inventory of homes, said Lynda Yeany, Columbia County Builders Association executive officer, detailing the CCBAs role in helping to rejuvenate the event. Therefore, the builders are busier now and we just felt this was a good time to have a Parade of Homes to show the latest things in the housing industry. Columbia Countys Builders Association is comprised of licensed home builders, plumbers, subcontractors, bankers, electricians, suppliers, engineers and other industry professionals, plus affiliates. The group has nearly 50 members in its ranks. The Columbia County Builders Association gets the people together from the area who are in the building industry and we share ideas, said Yeany, who has served as the Columbia County Builders Associations executive officer since 2007. Any professional who joins the CCBA has their licenses closely vetted and monitored for accuracy and validity, so that any potential customer in the Columbia County area who is searching to do business with a contractor of any type can know that if that professional is a member of the CCBA, they are truly a reputable, licensed contractor in their field. Being a member of the Columbia County Builders Association gives a professional credibility in their respective area of the construction business, Yeany said. Once a person is a member of the Columbia County Builders Association, they also become a member of the Florida Home Builders Association as well as the National Association of Home Builders. The National Association of Home Builders does a lot of lobbying in Washington, D.C., Yeany said. The Columbia County Builders Association was founded in 1978 as the North Central Florida Builders Council and in 1995 the organization changed its name to the Columbia County Builders Association. Yeany said by becoming a member of the Columbia County Builders Association, people get to mingle with building industry professionals, share ideas, and keep abreast of the latest innovations in the industry. Yeany began working for the Columbia County Builders Association when she and her husband were newcomers to Lake City. Being a member in the Columbia County Builders Association has enabled us, my husband and I, to get to meet the people of Lake City, she said. Its a good group. PARADEContinued From 1A

Wells batting average jumped from .195 to .298 over the five-game span. By JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comIts been and up-and-down season for Columbia, which has been down in dumps over the past month. Suffering losses in eight of their last 10 games, the Tigers were looking for some glimmer of hope before heading into next weeks District 3-7A Tournament semifinal against Middleburg. They may have turned the corner a little bit Monday night. Behind six solid innings from pitcher Mikah Gustavson and two RBI off the bat of Cal Gilliam, Columbia rolled to a 7-2 victory over Palatka at home to end a four-game skid. Tate Worrell, Jamie Minchin and Caleb Strickland also had an RBI apiece, which included a solo home run over the left field wall by Strickland. Dylan Blair and Worrell also scored runs for the Tigers (10-12) passed balls on a night where the Panthers (9-14) were forced to use four pitchers. Again, when we hit were pretty good and its a matter of stringing together hits with runners in scoring position, which we did tonight, Columbia coach Brian Thomas said. We got guys to second base, we scored them. We got guys to third base, we scored them, whether it was a hit or passed ball but he was there able to score. They figured it out, they found a way and thats just kind of the way this group of kids is. Theyre going to be okay. Gustavson had a lead for most of the night and settled in after Palatka pulled to within 3-2 in top of the third. The sophomore struck out seven, including the side in the fourth, and surrendered one earned run on eight hits and a hit batter while also going 2 for 4 at the plate with a pair of singles. Worrells RBI double in the first and Gilliams two-RBI double in the second was enough to get Gustavson rolling the rest of the night. Palatkas only runs came via Logan Harpers RBI single in the second and Tre Keens RBI sac fly the following inning. My offense put up some runs and Tigers end skid, top PanthersGustavson pitches six innings, Strickland goes deep in win for CHS.BRENT KUYKENDALL/Lake City ReporterColumbias Caleb Strickland celebrates with coach Brian Thomas as he rounds third base following his pinch-hit home run against Palatka during the sixth inning Monday night.

Bryan looks to turn NFL potential into production By JENNY FRYERAssociated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. The score is tied 3-3 between Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick in the race for hottest driver in NASCAR. Each has won three races in a row and has been nearly unbeatable through the first nine races of the season. Up next, though, is Talladega Superspeedway, a wild-card race track that could even the field. It means Jimmie Johnson, mired in a 32-race losing streak, has a chance to snap the longest winless streak of his career. Or Ricky Stenhouse Jr. could defend last years Talladega victory, the first Cup win of his career. Austin Dillon won the season-opening Daytona 500, and hes got as good a chance as anyone to win Rest of the field may have a chance against the duo.PITS continued on 2BBy MARK LONGAssociated PressGAINESVILLE Taven Bryans draft stock has more to do with potential than production. The Florida defensive tackle had 67 tackles, including 5 sacks, in three seasons with the Gators. He was a 6-foot-4, 291-pound enigma his first two years in Gainesville, but came on as a junior in 2017. He had 40 tackles last season, including six for loss and four sacks, while playing solely inside. He really played well down the stretch, showing a quick first step and the ability to disrupt offenses. Although he never took over a game, he routinely demanded double teams on a defense that lacked depth and talent up front. NFL scouts and general managers believe Bryan is just getting started. Thats why hes widely considered a first-round pick and a lock to be the first Florida player chosen when the three-day draft begins Thursday night. It would mean a lot really, Bryan said at Floridas pro day last month. You always want to be better. You want to be the first pick, but sometimes thats not realistic. You always wonder like how you could do a little bit better, maybe improved Floridas defensive tackle is considered a first-round pick.BRYAN continued on 5B B1

PAUL, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Wild split with general manager Chuck Fletcher after nine seasons with only two playoff series wins. Wild owner Craig Leipold met with Fletcher on Monday to tell him the club was not renewing his contract. He then addressed the players. The Wild have six straight postseason appearances, matching the longest-running streak in the Western Conference, but they have not reached the second round since 2015. Wild President Matt Majka will conduct the search with Leipold. Brent Flahr, the senior vice president of hockey oper ations and assistant GM under Fletcher, will serve as acting general manager in the meantime.Colts legend Freeney officially retiresINDIANAPOLIS (AP) Dwight Freeney mastered the art of spinning long before he reached the NFL. He kept his body low, his head up and his eyes focused on the quarterback. It made him different, and it made him one of the NFLs great pass rushers. On Monday, after 16 seasons of chasing quarterbacks and making offensive linemen look silly, the former Indianapolis Colts star returned to his adopted hometown to sign a one-day contract to retire with the Colts. He leaves the game with one Super Bowl ring, having played in two other Super Bowls, seven Pro Bowls selections and three first-team All-Pro selections.

(AP) Devin Hester and Matt Forte both signed oneday contracts with their original team Monday at Halas Hall so they could retire as Bears, and an emotional cer emony capped careers rich in highlight-reel material for the former sec ond-round draft picks. For Hester it may mean a spot some day in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. No other player is in the Hall based solely on returns, but Hesters league record of 20 TD returns could make him a candidate. He had 14 punt return TDs, five on kickoffs and one on a missed field goal. Not included in those 20 returns is his most well known, because it came during his rookie year and in the post season the 92-yard return for a TD in 2007 on the opening kickoff of Super Bowl 41. Like Hester, Forte is a player whose impact may soon be a rarity. In an age when many teams use multiple backs, Forte retired after 10 years with 14,468 yards from scrimmage, the most by any NFL player during the past decade.

Homeland Sauls mission is a go. Billions Taylor travels to Silicon Valley. The Circus: InsideOpposite Sex Sunday. Same goes for Brad Keselowski, considered by most of his peers the best restrictor-plate racer in the field right now. Busch goes to Alabama as the hottest driver in the series and the Cup Series points leader. Hes won the last three races at Texas, Bristol Motor Speedway and Richmond and has three runner-up finishes through nine races. Pretty cool to win three in a row, Busch said after Saturday nights victory at Richmond. Next week we go to Talladega. I think its easier to win the Powerball than win at Talladega. Well give it a go anyway, see what we get. Talladega should be a crapshoot with zero guarantees. It was the Team Penske trio of Keselowski, Joey Logano and Ryan Blaney that led Speedweeks in Daytona and cemented themselves as the favorites for the 500. But Keselowski was wrecked out of the race, Blaney was lost in traffic after leading a race-high 118 laps and Logano led the Penske charge with a disappointing fourth-place finish. With the Penske cars out of contention, the closing laps belonged to resurgent Stewart-Haas Racing. Both Kurt Busch and Aric Almirola had a shot to win the Daytona 500 in overtime and both were wrecked Almirola by Dillon as they raced for the checkered flag. Dillon led just one lap, the final one, to earn his Daytona 500 victory. Because Daytona and Talladega are so similar in speed, style and the way the field races in a pack, the dominance shown so far this season by Busch and Harvick may not matter. With 16 spots up for grabs in the playoffs, this is a race where a driver can steal a postseason berth. Only five drivers have qualified for the playoffs through nine races: Harvick and Busch, then Dillon for his Daytona victory, defending series champion Martin Truex Jr. for his win in California and Clint Bowyer for his Martinsville Speedway victory. Stenhouse, winner at Talladega last spring and Daytona in July, doesnt mind the dominance shown so far by Busch and Harvick because it opens up playoff chances at other circuits. (The) less people win and the more opportunity for somebody like us to get in (to the playoffs) on points if we need to, Stenhouse said. It doesnt really bother me that a couple people are winning most of the races. Those two are definitely by far the fastest cars out there right now. Johnson, the seven-time NASCAR champion, has not had one of the fastest cars this year and had a disastrous Speedweeks at Daytona. He crashed in every event and has yet to lead a single lap all year. Hes a two-time winner at Talladega and has every reason to believe he can be in the mix Sunday. But like his Hendrick Motorsports teammates, hes working with a new Camaro that has yet to show much muscle on the track. Dillons victory in the 500 is the only win this season for the new Chevrolet model, and Kyle Larson in 10th is the highest-ranked Chevy driver. If theres a chance to put an end to Busch and Harvicks mastery so far this season, it comes Sunday with a wideopen opportunity for another driver to get to victory lane. PITS Continued From 1B NBA PLAYOFFS NHL PLAYOFFSAssociated PressMINNEAPOLIS -James Harden gave Houston quite the jump-start with 22 of the teams 50 points in the third quarter, as the Rockets cruised past the Minnesota Timberwolves 119-100 on Monday night to take a 3-1 lead in their first-round playoff series. Chris Paul scored 15 of his 25 points in the near-record third for the Rockets, who turned a 50-49 halftime edge into a 31-point advantage after the torrid 12-minute span. The only team in the history of the NBA playoffs with more points in one quarter was the Los Angeles Lakers, who scored 51 points in the fourth on March 31, 1962, in a loss to the Detroit Pistons. Harden finished with 36 points on 12-for-26 shooting, Clint Capela added 14 points and 17 rebounds, Eric Gordon finally got going with 18 points off the bench and the Rockets easily recovered from their rough start. Karl-Anthony Towns had 22 points and 15 rebounds for the Timberwolves, who were dominated on both ends of the floor during the decisive third and missed 14 of 21 shots over several panicked possessions. The series shifts back south to Houston for Game 5 on Wednesday night.Harden, Rockets soar past Wolves with 50-point 3rdCARLOS GONZALEZ/Minnesota Star TribuneMinnesota Timberwolves Taj Gibson (67) and Houston Rockets James Harden (13) fight for the ball in the first quarter in Game 4 of their series Monday at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minn.

The Penguins won each of the last two years on the way to winning consecutive Stanley Cup championships.. Chandler Stephenson had a goal and an assist, and Dimitry Orlov, Devante Smith-Pelly and Lars Eller also tallied for Washington, which never trailed in the game after prevailing in overtime in Game 5 on Saturday. Nick Foligno had two goals, Pierre-Luc Dubois also scored and Sergei Bobrovsky finished with 22 saves for the Blue Jackets, who lost in the first round of the playoffs for the second consecutive season and fourth time overall. They remain the only active NHL franchise never to win a playoff series. Washington won four straight games after going down 2-0 at home with both games decided in overtimeBRUINS 3, MAPLE LEAFS 1In Toronto, Frederik Andersen stopped 32 shots to lead the Toronto Maple Leafs to a win over the Boston Bruins on Monday night, forcing a decisive Game 7 in the first-round series.

Nikita Zaitsev added two assists, and Marner and Plekanec each had one. Jake DeBrusk scored for the Bruins, and Tuukka Rask pulled in Game 5 at home, finished with 27 saves. Game 7 is Wednesday night in Boston with the winner advancing to face Tampa Bay in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

LAKECITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICSTUESDAY, APRIL 24, 2018 3B DEAR ABBY: I recently started dating a man who, until now, has been everything I wanted -respectful, kind, caring, funny, the list goes on. Hes recently divorced, and from what I know, he was unfaithful to his wife with many longterm side partners. Later, he started having one-night stands. He travels a lot for work, and because I had a rela tionship where I was cheated on, his travel already is a concern for me. Since we have decided to be an official couple, he has disclosed more detail about his one-night stands. They wer e with prostitutes. He says he has found peace with himself and knows what a poor decision it was, and how much damage he did to his wife because of it. He claims r edemption, that he has disclosed all this to his pastor and will never be that self-destr uctive man again. He told me because he didnt want to have any lies of omission walking into a new relationship. I want to believe hes the man I thought he was and that he would never disrespect me, but this was a huge blow. Should I try to move past this by giving him credit for his hones ty? -DUMBSTRUCK IN CHICAGO DEAR DUMBSTRUCK: I cant blame you for wanting to be cautious in light of this mans track r ecord. Considering the number of women he has slept with, its important you have a discussion with him about any STDs he may have contracted, as well as make an appoint ment with your OB/GYN to be checked for them because these days they are rampant. After that, if you are really serious about each other, go as a couple for r elationship counseling so you -and he -wont bring any baggage from the past into this current relationship. DEAR ABBY: A woman I worked with years ago recently moved to the city where I live. We are both in our mid-60s, retired and unattached. After she con tacted me on a social website, we met and have continued seeing each other for lunch, movies, spor ting events, etc. I misinterpreted her attempts to become friends with me. I liked her very much and became attracted to her. Recently a situation arose in which a missed communication, an irra tional act by me as well as an insensitive comment I made, upset her and now she no longer wants to talk with me. I understand her feelings. I dont know how long I hould wait to contact her to attempt to r enew our friendship -a month, two months, six months or more? Or should I just walk away and hope she has a change of heart, decides to let bygones be bygones and contacts me to renew the friendship? -UNFRIENDED IN NEW MEXICO DEAR UNFRIENDED: If apologies are in order, do not wait to make them. When you do, make clear that you didnt mean to upset her or make her uncomfortable, and you would still like to be friends -on her terms -if she is willing. From there on, the ball is in her court.

FRANK & ERNEST FOR BETTER OR WORSE ZITS HAGAR THE HORRIBLE SNUFFY SMITH GARFIELD CLASSIC PEANUTS DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES | THE LAST WORD BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Step up and do something that will make a difference to the people you love, your peers or your community. Getting along and offering hope to others will put you in a good position when you need something in return. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Dont feel you have to follow the crowd or make physical changes you cannot afford. Use your intelligence and skills, not your appearance, to help you get ahead. Keep your life simple and moderate to avoid being judged. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Dont do anything drastic. Changing your look will not turn out quite the way you want, and addressing an emotional issue will only make matters worse. Focus more on clearing a space to make room for a new project. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Secrets are best kept that way. Someone you thought was like you will disappoint you. If you want change, take action and make it happen. Waiting for someone else to make a move will be unproductive. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You can make your current situation better if you arent excessive and dont jeopardize your financial status. Practicality will weigh in heavy when it comes to easing stress and feeling secure about your future. Walk away from people with bad habits. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The changes you see going on around you arent a mandate for you to follow suit. Consider whats best for you and surround yourself with like-minded people who can help you advance. A business trip or meeting will pay off. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Listen to the voice of reason and put practical applications into play. Going with the flow instead of against it will prove to be in your best interest. Dont be shy or reluctant to accept help when offered. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Overspending is not the way to win someones affection. Put your wallet away and use your personality and charm to turn heads. How you treat others physically and emotionally will be the deciding factor when dealing with important relationships. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Handling your relationships with colleagues or friends will be emotionally difficult. Be careful not to send the wrong message with your actions or words. Youll face criticism or blame for something you unintentionally say or do. Dont share private information. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If you want to make a positive change, do something that will lower your overhead. Emotional problems will spin out of control, causing stress if you cant find a workable solution. Trying to control someones bad habits will be fruitless. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Dont feel you have to pay for someone elses mistake. Offer suggestions but dont physically or financially step in and take over. Personal changes can be made as long as they are within your budget. Personal relationships will be tested. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Dont let an offer confuse you. A change may be tempting, but before you make a decision, find out exactly whats expected of you and what you will receive in return. Dont get caught up in someone elses enthusiasm.

With a month left in the regular season, the Horned Frogs will be hard-pressed to even make the NCAA Tournament. The Frogs (19-17, 6-8) are fifth in the Big 12 and No. 86 in the RPI after losing three straight at Baylor over the weekend. Theyll likely have to win the Big 12 Tournament to make an NCAA regional for the 14th time in 15 years. No question about that, coach Jim Schlossnagle said Monday. If we went on some crazy run, we might be able to do it. Its certainly headed toward a conference tournament situation. For the second straight year, TCU will finish the season without offensive star Luken Baker. The junior first baseman broke a bone in his left leg while running the bases against Abilene Christian last Tuesday. Last year, he injured his left arm in a collision at first base and missed the last 21 games. The Frogs also have been without No. 1 starting pitcher Jared Janczak for all but one inning since March 30, and he likely wont return until the first week of May as he recovers from a nerve inflammation. TCUs margin for error already was thin. Three players in their recruiting class got drafted and didnt come to school, and the Frogs entered 2018 having to replace six everyday players. Being a private school that doesnt have extra financial aid, were like a small-market team in the big leagues, Schlossnagle said. The guys that were invested in, they have to stay healthy, they have to have good seasons, and when they do, we can compete with anybody. When we have misfortune or we make a mistake in recruiting or get hit in the draft, then the depth of our team gets exposed. Schlossnagle was counting on pitching to carry the Frogs. But in addition to Janczaks problems, Saturday starter Sean Wymer had back issues in February and March. Janczak, Wymer and the other weekend starter, Nick Lodolo, have a combined 4.36 ERA not up to the level we like to pitch at, Schlossnagle said. Hopefully we figure something out and make a late run, the coach added, but without Baker offensively, we have to play super, super clean fundamental baseball especially against good teams to win. Heres a look around the country:IN THE POLLSFlorida (34-8), which lost a midweek game to Jacksonville before winning two of three at Kentucky, remained No. 1 in the D1Baseball.com and Baseball America rankings. Stanford (305) swept three games at Arizona and was promoted to No. 1 by Collegiate Baseball newspaperLONGEST STREAK SINCE 2015At 25 in a row, Tennessee Tech is on the longest win streak in Division I since Illinois reeled off 27 straight in 2015. The Golden Eagles (34-5) outscored Southern Illinois 33-9 in a three-game weekend sweep. They visit Tennessee on Tuesday.10, BUT NOT TO WINGeorge Mason freshman Jared DiCesare matched a national season high by pitching 10 innings Sunday against VCU, and he was efficient doing it. DiCesare threw just 99 pitches and retired the last 22 batters he faced after allowing three singles in the first three innings. He struck out seven, walked none and threw a first-pitch strike to 27 of 32 batters. He got no decision, however, as his team lost 1-0 in 12 innings.ADVERTISING ANOTHER NO-HITTERWashington State recorded its second no-hitter in two weeks, with four pitchers combining to pull off the feat in a 5-0 win over Santa Clara on Sunday. Scotty Sunitsch no-hit Oregon on April 8. Parker McFadden, A.J. Block, Collin Maier and Ryan Walker gave the Cougars a second no-hitter in the same season for the first time since 1976. a little better, maybe interview a little better. Just working at the small things to get better at what I do. Bryan admittedly took his football talent for granted early in his college career. He realized he was blessed physically, but he never thought much about it. He would casually talk about bench-pressing 450 pounds or squatting more than 600 pounds. Teammates recant stories of his work ethic and weight-room feats. Squat, bench, curl, whatever it is, that man is a beast, Florida defensive end Keivonnis Davis said. Like a real-life beast. ... Hes a monster. Added Gators running back Lamical Perine: We would have a full workout, and he would go back in after everyone was done and have his own workout. He could lift the whole weight room if he wanted to. So no one at Florida was surprised to see Bryan raise eyebrows at the NFL combine in March. He covered the 40-yard dash in 4.98 seconds, one of five defensive tackles to break the 5-second mark, and benched-pressed 225 pounds 30 times. He topped all defensive tackles in the vertical jump (35 inches), the broad jump (9 feet, 11 inches), the three-cone drill (7.12 seconds) and the 20-yard shuttle (4.48 seconds). The guys an animal, Florida safety Duke Dawson said. He comes out to practice and shows it. He shows it in games. Bryans background has a lot to do with him getting this far. He grew up in Casper, Wyoming, as the son of an ex-Navy SEAL. Bryan often tagged along with his dad to build houses. When they werent working, they were hunting, fishing and exploring mountain ranges and the high plains. He brings a kind of a hardcore type of attitude thing, never letting me slack off or getting away with things, the younger Bryan said. Football took over Bryans life as a teenager, eventually turning him into a big-time recruit from the Cowboy State. He ended up 1,600 miles away in Gainesville, looking to following in the footsteps of fellow Florida defensive stars Dominique Easley and Dante Fowler. Now, hes likely to join them as first-round picks Thursday night. I feel like I got a lot better, Bryan said. I just try to look back on everything and learn from my mistakes. ... I think Im a very powerful rusher. I never get blown off the ball. I always hold my gap, pretty stout for 290.

Coach Brian called a great game. I started to get some of the other off-speed pitches working and that helped a little bit towards the end. My fast ball was also hitting all the spots (Thomas) called. Gustavson may have thrown Thomas the credit but Thomas tossed it right back to him after the game. He was outstanding. He was outstanding. Thats what we wanted to see, Thomas said. Middleburg hasnt seen him so the more innings he can get, the more comfortable he feels extending his pitching time where its not an inning, two innings but five, six, seven innings and the better hes going to get. I thought later in the game he really got crisp. Columbia pulled away with three runs in the third, with Blair and Worrell both scoring on passed balls before Sammy Walker scored on Jamie Minchins RBI single. Minchin went 2 for 3, including a double in the second where he later scored. Layton Deloach suffered the loss for Palatka, pulled after the third inning. He gave up five earned on six hits, a walk and three hit batters. Strickland came off the bench cold in the sixth to pinch hit and sent a rocket over left field for his first home run of the season and just Columbias second as a team (Blair has the other). It was a perfect scenario for Caleb. Caleb is a great low-ball hitter and he has a tendency when he gets low to create a little bit of lift. He sees it low and tries to hit it head high, Thomas said. When he gets into his funk, like they all do, he attacks the balls that are up. Well, thats not his swing plane. His swing plane is down and up and so it was a perfect scenario. Columbia travels to Santa Fe tonight and then ends the regular season at home Thursday against Hamilton County for Senior Night. After that, its onto Middleburg for the district semis on May 1. The Tigers hope to be rolling on a three-game winning streak heading into that critical contest. Were just worried about winning one game at a time this week, Gustavson said.
