Recently, we celebrated our wonderful Volunteers with an appre ciation breakfast. Carol Barnett, Debbi Hubbell, and Michelle Daughtry hosted 29 volunteers who came for breakfast, including our three Volunteers of the Year, pictured (from left) at right: Kathy Seewald, Adult Volunteer; Sophia Miller, Youth Volunteer; and Jeanette Slaymaker, Senior Volunteer.weekend, according to a Columbia County Sheriffs Office report. Deputies on Monday afternoon arrested Michael Carrin Vann, 30, of Southwest Fairlington Court, at his workplace. Earlier that day, the woman complained to CCSO about repeated harassment from Vann, with whom she was previously involved, according to the report. The woman had to block Vanns number multiple times, according to the report. When she went out with a large group Friday, Vann demanded the victims friend bring her home, making threats toward the friend and sending disturbing emails, according to the report. In one email, he wrote that the victim was worth going to jail over and he would be at whoevers house she was staying at that night to escort her home, the report states. He also referred to the victim as his wife, according to the report. Around 2:45 a.m., when the victim was home alone, Vann entered the gate to her backyard and looked through the bedroom window, the report states. After the woman spotted him, Vann went to his vehicle and grabbed what looked like a gun before screaming obscenities, prompting the woman to call 911, according to the report. Deputies arrived at the scene and determined Vann was intoxicated, instructing him to have someone pick him up and take him home, the report states. The woman stayed the night somewhere else. After she returned, she realized Vann was outside, banging on the windows and apparently trying to force his way inside, according to the report. Deputies had to respond to the home a second time, prompting Vann to flee into the nearby underbrush with a gun, the report states. Vann was eventually issued a trespass warning and instructed to leave the scene. Still fearing for her safety, the woman stayed elsewhere again. She returned around 8 p.m. and found several empty beer bottles outside the home. They were Vanns brand, according to the report. On Monday, the woman went to visit a friend when Vann contacted her to say he knew where she was and who she was with. Around 9:40 a.m. Monday, Vann reportedly went to the womans workplace and started talking to staff, claiming to be her fiance.

When the daycare director asked about the injuries, the child said Geiger whipped her with a hanger in reaction to her ripping up daddys papers, according to the report. The childs twin also had bruising, the report states. The childrens older sibling also spoke to daycare personnel. The Florida Department of Children and Families was notified. Authorities visited the home of Geiger and Brian Friar, whom the children call daddy, according to the report. Geiger reacted to the allegations by screaming, crying and curling up on the ground, the report states. DCF took the children into custody. ABUSEContinued From 1A

WEDNESD AY, APRIL 25, 2018 LOCAL LAKE CITY REPORTER 3A As a pharmacist for almost 30 years, I have to tell you I never thought Id live to see the day when an advisory committee to the FDA unanimously voted to approve a pot-related drug, known as Epidiolex. It is making a lot of people scratch their heads in wonder, for many reasons: 1. Does this mean pot is legal? No 2. Will this drug be sold at stores without a prescription? No 3. Is it going to make people high. No The FDAs move to prescriptionize a cannabis-related drug is stunning to most, but not to me. Its really no surprise considering the pressure theyve been under these past few years. You see, parents of children with seizures have become activists, and have been all over regulatory agencies, such as the FDA to change the laws. Why? Because conventional medicine like benzodiazepines, phenytoin, valproate, gabapentin and/or carbamazepine werent always clinically successful. Children were becoming seriously injured or disabled from seizure-related accidents. Many died in their mothers or fathers arms. Families were going bankrupt. Somewhere along the way, word got out that an extract called CBD (cannabidiol) from the cannabis sativa plant (i.e., pot) could stop the seizures and make some of these kids go from catatonic, to normal, with one special cookie! Epidiolex is causing a lot of consumer confusion, as well as heartache in Colorado, which is the state I live in. By the way, you make your own form of cannabis every single day, and this naturally-produced compound binds to the cannabis receptor in the same exact way as if you had smoked a joint! You have pot receptors all over your body. Colorado-based dispensaries have been in business for decades, and we are experiencing a population explosion in my state, primarily because we have what I call a Pot Rush going on, which is akin to the Gold Rush in the 1850s, except now the commodity is weed, not gold. Epidiolex is pure CBD. Theres no psychoactive THC in it. This drug will require a prescription. The problem here is that dispensaries in Colorado cant sell FDA approved drugs, like Epidiolex, and likewise, pharmacies in Colorado cant sell cannabis-containing products! Parents in every state (except Colorado) will soon be able to go to the pharmacy to get the drug, once it is approved and on the pharmacy shelf. You will need a prescription. FYI, cannabis-related products can and do help with dozens of conditions, especially symptoms of insomnia, pain, autism, high anxiety, inflammatory (cancer) and autoimmune disorders. I have a longer version of this article that I can send to you if you sign up for my newsletter, at my website, suzycohen.com. In summary, Epidiolex is different from medical marijuana, mainly because it does not contain any THC whatsoever, and also because it is FDA approved, and standardized. It is the most potent form of CBD currently available, and it cant be sold by dispensaries. Once it hits the U.S. market, it will only be available at pharmacies nationwide, with the exception of pharmacies in Colorado.

To the Editor: Thanks to Anderson Columbia, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission and the Suwannee County Road Department, there is now a place where those dependent on wheelchairs for mobility can fish. The Suwannee Lake Pier had become the only wheelchair accessible pier in the three-county area after the Lake Montgomery Pier had become unsafe and was dismantled and the wheelchair accessible pier at Nutrien Phosphate in Hamilton County was flooded last year. Erosion from heavy rains had made the Suwannee Lake Pier also inaccessible early this year. Volunteers who take wheelchair dependent patients from the Lake City VA Hospital fishing no longer had a place to take them. We requested assistance from Suwannee County, FWC, and the Anderson Columbia Company. Anderson Columbia donated and delivered about 80 cubic yards of asphalt millings, and the Suwannee County Road Department graded and compacted the millings to make a wheelchair accessible path to the pier. Our veterans at the Lake City VA Hospital are extremely grateful to Suwannee County, the FWC, and Anderson Columbia for quickly completing this project after the need was pointed out. Others who like to fish and must use a wheelchair for mobility will also be grateful. The lake is a Fish Management Area owned and managed by FWC for use by the public. The pier, which was completed by FWC in early 2016, is constructed with a plastic material that will not warp or deteriorate, and it will remain user friendly to those in wheelchairs for many years. Anyone who has not been to this scenic lake and pier should take the short trip from Lake City and enjoy it, whether or not you like to fish. It is a few miles north of U.S. 90 West between Lake City and Live Oak in Suwannee County, and is on the GPS. Gene McNeill Lake CityI got the rundown Tuesday on the much-anticipated economic development summit set for Monday at Florida Gateway College. Heres whats happening. On stage for the stakeholder panel will be members of the County Commission and City Council (except for Councilman George Ward, who is leaving town when his term is up in the fall); Supt. Lex Carswell; FGC President Lawrence Barrett; Greg Galpin, a senior manager at Weyerhaeuser, which owns the North Florida Intermodal Park on East U.S. 90; Missy Zecher, a local Realtor; Chum ONeal, owner of ONeal Roofing; hotelier Nick Patel; a representative of FDOT; and a developer. Thats quite a cast. After the introductions, panelists will be asked, What does economic development in Columbia County look like to you? That should provoke a lively discussion. From there, three segments follow: A look at some areas previously targeted for development the intermodal park; Bell Road south of I-10; and the Ellisville/I-75 exchange followed by a long, hard look at challenges to development these areas face; then questions from the audience. That last one may be most important. Your input is invaluable but not always easy to get. If you have something to say, now is the time to say it. Gather your thoughts and get focused. Expect a big crowd, but dont get nervous. Mike McKee of FGC, who will act as emcee for the evening, will read your questions off a card you filled out in advance. Keep your questions short and to the point. To give everybody a chance to be heard, each query will be limited to two minutes. The summit, set to run from 6-8 p.m. in Room 102 of the Wilson S. Rivers Media Center, will be streamed live on YouTube and aired live on FGC Channel 8 on Comcast. The summit is the brainchild of County Commission Chairman Tim Murphy, who seems determined to do something about the lack of career-track jobs in the county. I encourage you to attend, whether you have anything to say or not. This may be the one that gets the ball rolling.

Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY On this date: In 1507, a world map produced by German cartographer Martin Waldseemueller contained the first recorded use of the term America, in honor of Italian navigator Amerigo Vespucci. In 1792, highwayman Nicolas Jacques Pelletier became the first person under French law to be executed by the guillotine. In 1862, during the Civil War, a Union fleet commanded by Flag Officer David G. Farragut captured the city of New Orleans. In 1901, New York Gov. Benjamin Barker Odell, Jr. signed an automobile registration bill which imposed a 15 mph speed limit on highways. In 1915, during World War I, Allied soldiers invaded the Gallipoli Peninsula in an unsuccessful attempt to take the Ottoman Empire out of the war. In 1945, during World War II, U.S. and Soviet forces linked up on the Elbe River, a meeting that dramatized the collapse of Nazi Germanys defenses. Delegates from some 50 countries gathered in San Francisco to organize the United Nations. A summit to top em all A summit to top em all TODAY IN HISTORY LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Thankful for wheelchair-accessible pier Robert Bridgesrbridges@lakecityreporter.com Robert Bridges is editor of the Lake City Reporter. The world is rife with turmoil, much of it affecting American interests, from the Middle East to Venezuela to the Korean peninsula. All this makes the role of the U.S. State Department even more vital than usual. But for the past 15 months, under Rex Tillerson, it has been handicapped by weak leadership and lack of influence with the White House. That stands to change under Mike Pompeo, a veteran of Congress who has served Donald Trump as director of the CIA. In sharp contrast with Tillerson, Pompeo knows well how to work with both Congress and the president who trusts him so much he sent him on a secret mission to Pyongyang to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Pompeo would undoubtedly be a stabilizing presence in a department that needs one. But his nomination for secretary of state faces stubborn Senate opposition from some. Senators shouldnt lose sleep worrying about that possibility. Trump has shown he is more than willing to get rid of subordinates who dont meet his expectations and Pompeo is not one of them. As CIA director, dont forget, he managed to win the trust of a president who came into office suspicious of the intelligence community. Democrats are more likely to object because Pompeo is too closely aligned with Trump on global issues, hostile to the Iran nuclear deal and given to harsh remarks about Muslims and homosexuality. But in his confirmation hearings, as The New York Times reported, Pompeo presented himself in surprisingly moderate terms, promising to defend gay rights around the world, work to rescue the Iran nuclear deal and reverse the administrations marginalization of American diplomats. His successful meeting with Kim ought to convince skeptics that he is capable of making full use of diplomacy in addressing security threats. For critics who think the president has been far too eager to cultivate friendly relations with Vladimir Putin, this nomination should be reassuring. In his CIA confirmation hearings last year, he said, Russia has reasserted itself aggressively, invading and occupying Ukraine, threatening Europe, and doing nearly nothing to aid in the destruction of ISIS. In January he said that we need to continue to push back against the Russians everywhere we find them. Pompeo has performed ably in his current job, with none of the gaffes or ethical lapses of some of Trumps other appointees. Presidents are entitled to choose their own advisers, and nothing that has emerged about Pompeo is disqualifying. The State Department could use a secretary equipped for the job of advancing U.S. interests in concert with the president and the sooner the better.Why the Senate should confirm Pompeo Chicago Tribune

The cops had already been called to the residence on the 400 block of SW Old Niblack Ave due to the ongoing April 22 spat, the report said. After leaving the first time the beating reportedly began. The report states Walter, after being read his Miranda rights, said he saw his neighbor on his lawnmower mowing what he though was his yard. He then advised he was furious with this so he left his residence approached [the man] and started punching [him] while riding on the lawn mower. He then pulled [him] off the lawn mower and started choking [him] and repeatedly punching [him]. Alleged victim Robert Alfords account appeared to confirm Walters admission. Phillip walked up to him swinging, the victims statement said in the report. Both men then fell to the ground and the choking commenced, it said. Alford reportedly had $413 in a cigarette pack in his pocket that went missing after the tussle, his cell phone was broken and the keys to his lawn mower went missing. All of these contributed to Walters charges which included: grand theft, robbery, simple battery, aggravated battery, damage to property and robbery. He was jailed on $63,000 bond, jail records show. MOWERContinued From 1A By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comIn the school auditorium the words of an interpreter rang out with the written lament of Noel Ramirezs mother. Ramirezs family stood beside her in front of their sons coffin, draped in an American flag, while the chaplain read the note, first in Spanish. She then read it in English: Noel my boy you shall forever be in my heart and in my soul. I will forever remember you my son. Today I am speechless, I am devastated. How I long to see you again, to hug you, to kiss you. I will forever love you with all my heart to the end of my days. Before that, Gilchrist Sheriff Robert Schultz read a note from Nan, Taylors Mother. It started, Taylor was not taken, he was sent. She wrote her son was a man of dedication, honesty, respect, compassion and love. He will forever be on p-trol, Schultz read. That was how she said Lindsey pronounced the words of his dream career as a child. He wanted to become a Florida Highway p-trol man, Schultz said. Gilchrist County Sheriffs Sgt. Noel Ramirez Jr, 30, and Deputy Taylor Lindsey, 25, lost their lives Thursday, gunned down in Trenton while eating lunch. Tuesdays memorial service at Bell High School was the communitys chance to say goodbye. Outside the auditorium blue ribbons and messages of support dotted church signs, store fronts and telephone poles along South Main Street. Across the street dozens of bikers gathered at a gas station waiting on what was thought to be one of the largest funeral processions in state history. The town of Bell, with a population under 500, is the second largest town in Gilchrist County next to Trenton, the county seat. They sit about 10 and a half miles apart and share a combined population of roughly 2,500. Tuesday there appeared at least that many mourners gathered in the sea of black, blue, green and white uniformed officers on the schools campus. They had come from the across the state, some traveling hours to attend and others only minutes from neighboring counties, towns and cities running the gamut of state personnel and law enforcement. Schultz began with a few inside jokes that he admitted most in attendance wouldnt understand. Both of these guys were fun-loving, Godfearing, good, good men, he said. Ramirez had a child with autism and got the department involved in a program for the disorder, while Lindsey led focus groups for problem areas in the county, Schultz said. Governor Rick Scott spoke midway through the service. He said he attends all law enforcement funerals in the state for those killed on duty. We will never understand why these men were taken from us, Scott said. He then directly addressed the families: The entire state of Florida joins in this prayer for the families. I just want to tell you my heart goes out to you. I just cant imagine. Memorial service held in Bell for slain deputies on Tuesday.

Contact Eric Jackson or Jordan Kroeger754-0420 754-0421ejackson@lakecityreporter.com jkroeger@lakecityreporter.com Follow @LCR_Sports on Twitter for local stories, score updates and moreBy JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comGAINESVILLE Columbia coach Trudy Andrews has called Middleburg a scrappy team all season long. The Broncos even nearly edged the Lady Tigers just a few weeks ago. In Tuesday nights District 3-7A semifinal, Middleburg showed some of that scrappiness for two innings, even throwing a runner out at third to end the second. But then came the third, and just like they did in the teams first two meetings, the Lady Tigers showed just why theyre the more talented team. Class 7A No. 6 Columbia blew the doors open with six runs in the third, including a three-run home run by Story Giebeig, and cruised the rest of the way to an 8-1 win over Middleburg at Gainesville High School. The win clinches a spot for the Lady Tigers in the Class 7A regional playoffs and also sends them to Thursdays district championship game against top-seeded Gainesville. Its the sixth straight playoff berth for Columbia (21-3). We like that, Andrews said with a smile. Andrews also enjoyed the way her team swung the bat early in the game. After Middleburg (8-15) pushed Columbia in a scoreSIGHTS ON SIXNFL DRAFTBy MARK LONGAssociated PressJACKSONVILLE Dont expect the Jacksonville Jaguars to change course now. Just about every move they have made since top executive Tom Coughlins return last year has been to bolster the defense and running game. Those oldschool ideals are so much a part of Jacksonvilles identity that Coughlin even helped fashion new uniforms to match the teams on-field style. The NFL draft probably will adhere to the franchises throwback philosophy. Take a quarterback in the first round? Highly unlikely. Select a receiver? Probably not. Look for Coughlin and the Jaguars to continue building a smash-mouth team early in the draft, beginning with the 29th overall pick Thursday night. Offensive line, tight end or maybe another defender would be the safest bets. Inevitably people fall. Whos it going to be? Who knows? Coughlin said. But according to the work that weve done, we feel that we will get a good football player at that spot. Heres the best way to look at Jacksonvilles upcoming draft: The Jaguars led New England 20-17 with a little more than five minutes to play in the AFC championship game and failed to close it out. So what can they do to avoid that happening again? Being able to run the ball better with Leonard Fournette would be a good start. Thats why Jacksonville acquired the most coveted offensive lineman in free agency last month. Former Carolina All-Pro guard Andrew Norwell signed a five-year, $66.5 million deal that included $30 million guaranteed. Norwell will play between blossoming left tackle Cam Robinson, a second-round draft pick in 2017, and solid center Brandon Linder. The right side of Jacksonvilles line could use a makeover. Guard A.J. Cann, a third-round pick in 2015, is entering the final year of his contract, and 31-yearold right tackle Jermey Parnell has two years remaining on his deal after playing most of last season with a knee injury. Jacksonville likely wont be in position to take Notre Dame PREP SOFTBALLJaguars look to continue building on team identityBy ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comKEYSTONE HEIGHTS Fort White handled Palatka in the seasons first two meetings, but winning a third wouldnt come so easy for the Lady Indians. Without ace Shelby Dubose (finger), the Lady Indians turned to pitcher Jordan Feagle, who had an unspectacular yet solid performance in her first career start. Palatka took advantage of the rookie though, tallying eight unanswered runs in the sixth inning. The Lady Panthers used the big inning, along with strong pitching, to upset the Lady Indians 14-7 in the District 5-5A quarterfinals Tuesday night.

TIGERS continued on 6BCOLLEGE FOOTBALLFloridas Callaway fails drug test at NFL combineBy MARK LONGAssociated PressGAINESVILLE Former Florida receiver Antonio Callaway failed a drug test at the NFL combine, a mistake that could damage his draft status. A person with knowledge of the situation says NFL teams were made aware of the result Tuesday. The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the league does not release that information publicly. NFL Network first reported Callaways failed test. It was the latest misstep for a talented but troubled receiver who was once considered a lock to be a firstround draft pick. Now, some teams surely will take the 21-year-old Callaway off their draft board. Failing a drug test at the combine, a place prospects know theyre going to be tested, is widely considered one of the more head-scratching results of the pre-draft process. For Callaway, its another huge red flag. Callaway was suspended all of last season as part of an investigation into felony credit card fraud. He also was cited for marijuana possession in May 2017, stopped by police while riding in a car with a career criminal, and was part of a Title IX investigation in 2016 that centered on an alleged sexual battery. He testified during that case he was high on marijuana during the incident and was later found not responsible for the alleged misconduct. At Floridas pro day last month, Callaway said every NFL team he spoke t CallawayTEST continued on 6B INDIANS continued on 6B B1

The Yankees got Cole for $75,000, a move they announced late Monday following a 14-1 win over Minnesota.

Cobb, now with the Baltimore Orioles, was scheduled to face his old team on Tuesday night before the game was postponed by rain. Thus, Cobb will start Wednesday in the delayed start of this series between the only two AL East teams with losing records. The rainout will be made up as part of single-admission doubleheader on May 12. Cobb, 30, spent his entire career with the Rays before signing with Baltimore as a free agent on March 21. Over six years with Tampa Bay, the right-hander was 48-35 and one of the leaders of the staff. Cobb signed a $57 million, four-year deal with the Orioles, who will be count ing on him to deliver the same kind of pitching and leadership in Baltimore.

NBA PLAYOFFS Believe it! 76ers roll past Heat in Game 5Associated PressPHILADELPHIA Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons shined again and the dominant duo ushered the nightmares-into-dreams Process of the Philadelphia 76ers into the second round with a 104-91 win over the Miami Heat on Tuesday night. The 76ers, winners of 10 games just two seasons ago, are in the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs for the first time since 2012. They await the winner of Milwaukee-Boston. The Celtics lead the series 3-2. The Sixers won the series 4-1 and turned the Wells Fargo Center into the wildest house party in the city. Embiid had 19 points and 12 rebounds, Simmons had 14 points and 10 boards, and the entire team had rappers, politicians, actors and kids dancing along for the ride. Goran Dragic was whistled for a technical after slapping Simmons on the backside of his head, and that got the crowd howling early in the third. Simmons kept his cool the rookie is rarely rattled and made the Heat pay. JJ Redick sank the free throw off the technical, and Simmons kicked the ball out to Robert Covington on the possession for a 3 and a 54-48 lead. Redick followed with his third 3, and Philly was litty again. Redick, who scored 27, sank the dagger late in the fourth that sent confetti flying, team flags waving and put a late-night celebration on deck. Heat forward Josh Richardson played with a sprained left shoulder. He picked up three fouls in his first two minutes. James Johnson was hit with personal and technical fouls late in the fourth that ended a 10-0 Miami run. Dwyane Wade is considering retirement. Justise Winslow led the Heat with 18 points.CELTICS 92, BUCKS 87BIn Boston, Al Horford had 22 points and 14 rebounds, Marcus Smart made an impact in his first game since mid-March and the Boston Celtics beat the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night for a 3-2 lead in their first-round playoff series. Smart came off the bench and had nine points, five rebounds, four assists and three blocks in his first game since undergoing right thumb surgery. He played 25 minutes wearing a protective splint and had a key assist late from the bottom of a scrum beneath three Milwaukee players. Terry Rozier added 16 points and five assists for Boston. The home team has won all five games in the first-round series, and Game 6 is Thursday in Milwaukee. Khris Middleton led the Bucks with 23 points, Jabari Parker added 17 points and eight rebounds, and Giannis Antetokounmpo had a series-low 16 points with 10 rebounds and nine assists. The Celtics led by 16 before Milwaukee rallied to make it 74-70 with 7:33 left. Middleton scored later and was fouled to get Milwaukee within 84-79, but he failed to complete the three-point play. A few possessions later, Smart managed to squeeze out a pass to Horford with three Bucks draped over him, and Horford easily dropped in a layup to make it 86-79 with 28.1 seconds left. Milwaukee got within 87-84 after a layup by Eric Bledsoe, but the Celtics hit enough free throws the rest of the way to secure the win. The Bucks entered the game shooting an NBA playoff-best 54 percent from the field, but they hit just 37 percent for the game (32 of 87). Boston needed an energy boost after slow starts to Games 3 and 4, and Smart gave the Celtics exactly that. He checked in for the first time late in the first quarter. Less than a minute later, he deflected a pass and won a scramble on the floor for the loose ball. A few possessions later, he was helping protect the rim, getting his hand in to deny an alley-oop dunk attempt by Antetokounmpo.

LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25, 2018 3B DEAR ABBY: My husband is retired. Except for golf a few times a week, hes home all the time. He has taken to looking at porn a lot when he is home, including pictures and reading racy stories. When I come home from work, hes on the computer. Im very uncomfortable with it, and I have told him so. He says I should join him looking at the pictures and reading the stories. Am I a prude or is this behavior unusual? -TURNED OFF IN HOUSTON DEAR TURNED OFF: Im reluctant to label either of you with only the sketchy facts you have presented. Much would depend upon the kind of pictures and stories your husband is viewing, because one persons porn can be another persons erotica. Many couples enjoy viewing it together and consider it to be a marital aid. Perhaps you should look over his shoulder a time or two and see if it works for you. Also, encourage your husband to get out and do other things, so his porn-watching time is not so excessive. DEAR ABBY: I am a 71-year-old woman living with my 49-year-old single daughter in her house. She works during the day and I stay at home. She expects me to clean the house, walk the dog, work in the garden, do the laundry, make dinner, etc. I am willing to help with these things, but she doesnt seem to appreciate what I do, as is often demonstrated by her comments concerning the amount of noise I make when I eat, my bedroom not being clean enough and my activity level. She says shes doing this for my own good, and that I am lazy and unmotivated to do anything but play on my computer (she unplugged the internet because she thought I spent too much time on it). She claims she loves me and wants me to live with her, but I feel I should move out before this gets physical and she hurts more than my feelings. What should I do? -BOARDER IN THE SOUTH DEAR BOARDER: Move if you can afford to do it. Your daughter may love you, as I am sure you love her, but the situation you describe isnt healthy for either of you. You are being treated like a servant, not a mother. You are right to be concerned that your daughters verbal abuse may escalate, because it very well could. DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I are talking about getting married. We agree that we would like to be married in Las Vegas. However, it would mean excluding our extended families as most of them would not travel. We thought about having a wedding and reception in our state, then traveling to Vegas to be married there as well. Are there any etiquette breaches with this idea? -VEGAS WEDDING DEAR VEGAS WEDDING: By the time you get to Vegas youll be married. While I dont think there would be any etiquette breaches if you want another ceremony, it seems to me that it would be more accurate to call it a renewal of vows rather than a second wedding. Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com Husband invites wife to join him watching porn DILBERT BABY BLUES BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C. 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): A reserved approach will help you get things done while remaining within your budget. Don't let anyone put pressure or demands on you. Know your plan and execute it with finesse. Educational pursuits and spiritual growth are favored. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A little charm and a whole lot of drive will help you achieve what you set out to do. Observe the experts and learn as you go. Mingling with people who have something to offer will help you master your own style. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Keep an open mind and listen to what's being said or offered, but don't feel rushed to make a promise or decision that will tie up your time. Look at change realistically and do only what's feasible and fits into your lifestyle. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You can make a difference if you get busy doing things to improve your environment or a cause you believe in. Your dedicated effort will be rewarded. Don't let an emotional issue ruin your mood or your desire to help others. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Use common sense when dealing with work or someone from your past who let you down but wants a second chance. Concentrate on your work and getting things done on time and within budget. Strive for perfection. Choose quality over quantity. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Share your thoughts, and you'll gain confidence as well as support. Networking, educational pursuits and social media will play a role in the way you get the word out and build a following. Opportunity will sprout if you are diligent. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The adjustments you need to make at home in order to balance your budget may seem a little restrictive at first, but once you adapt, you'll have less stress and worry, not to mention extra cash flow to take care of emergencies. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Share your ideas. Your input at group meetings or family gatherings will garner greater popularity and respect. A unique perspective on a situation will be well-received. Reconnecting with an old colleague will lead to a new prospect. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Emotional problems will surface if you discuss your private life or display your feelings openly. Someone will use your vulnerability to take advantage of you. Choose your words wisely. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Make adjustments to the way you handle your personal finances or domestic chores. Your contribution will help you feel you have a say in matters that can influence your lifestyle and family decisions. Stick close to home. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Consider the best way to help an organization or good cause. A practical outlook and suggestions will make others pay attention. Look for the best way to handle anyone trying to sabotage your plans. Moderation will be in your best interest. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You'll know what's best for you regarding how you earn your living and the type of work you prefer to do. A chance to advance is within reach, and discussing contracts and what you want should be priorities. April 25: Actor Al Pacino is 78. Dancing With The Stars judge Len Goodman is 74.

No one would be surprised to see the Jaguars choose a tight end with their first pick, either. Coughlin and general manager Dave Caldwell cut veteran Marcedes Lewis last month, and although they signed Austin Seferian-Jenkins in free agency, theyre still looking for someone who can be as productive blocking as catching passes. Those guys are rare these days, with South Carolinas Hayden Hurst and South Dakota States Dallas Goedert seemingly the best available. You see so many people today spread them out and go to the smaller guy, Coughlin said. We want to run the ball. So to run the ball, we need a little bit more power in the back pocket to come off the ball, do all the combination work. ... Not easy to find, but theyre out there. Some other things to know about Jacksonville, which is positioned to pick outside the top 10 for the first time since 2007.DEFENSIVE DEPTHVeteran linebacker Paul Posluszny retired, and nickel cornerback Aaron Colvin signed with Houston. But the Jaguars drafted linebacker Blair Brown in the fifth round last year and signed free agent D.J. Hayden to replace Colvin. We have needs, dont get me wrong, but theres not a glaring need for this upcoming season for us, Caldwell said.QUARTERBACK COMING?The Jaguars let Chad Henne walk, leaving them without a backup quarterback until trading for Clevelands Cody Kessler late last month. Kesslers arrival did little to alter Jacksonvilles desire for a developmental backup. But how high will the Jags take one?HITS, MISSES AND BARGAINSCornerback Jalen Ramsey (first round, 2016) and running back Leonard Fournette (first round, 2017) are two big hits for a team with a history of draft woes. No one from Jacksonvilles 2013 draft class remains on the roster. Linebacker Telvin Smith (fifth round, 2014) and defensive Yannick Ngakoue (third round, 2016) are two of the biggest draft bargains the Jags have found in recent years. JAGUARS Continued From 1Bless game until the sixth inning on Mar. 29, the Lady Tigers made sure to put the Broncos away early in the do-or-die game. Ten batters came to the plate in the bottom of the third, an inning that began when Middleburg starting pitcher Kaylee Crickmore hit Caroline Lewis with a pitch. The frame just unraveled for Crickmore from there as Lauren Hutcherson reached on a bunt single before Carolines older sister S.K. scored Caroline with an RBI single. Giebeig then launched a pitch over the left field wall for her second homer of the season to score three more runs and make the score 4-0. She was throwing up and I was just thinking base hit and hit the middle of the ball, Giebeig said. I just hit the middle of the ball and it went over. It felt really good. Ive just had a lot of base hits this season but not as many home runs. Im just trying to hit the middle of the ball and if it goes out, it goes out. Giebeigs bomb sent Crockmore to the dugout but the inning was far from over. Whitney Lee doubled off reliever Haleigh Campbell, who then walked Lucy Giebeig to set up a two-RBI double by Morgan Hoyle that extended Columbias lead to 6-0. Hoyle finished the night 2 for 3 and also scored a run in the sixth. We were selective at the plate, Andrews said. Theyre waiting for their pitches and we worked all season on that, to stay within themselves and be selective so that they have to bring a pitch that you can go for to make something happen. It was good to see them put the bat on the ball. Columbia pitcher CrisDeona Beasley picked up another win on the mound, striking out five in six innings with four hits allowed. The junior only put one base runner on through the first four innings and her only hiccup came in the fifth when she surrendered two hits and allowed a run to come across via Haleigh Wrights RBI single. But Beasley held the Broncos at bay the rest of the night, even working out of a bases-loaded jam in the sixth. Whitney Lee pitched a perfect seventh to finish off the win. Columbias other two runs came in the sixth thanks to a pinch-hit RBI single by Sofia Arata and an RBI double from S.K. Lewis, who finished 2 for 4. Thursday will be the third straight year Columbia and Gainesville have met for the district championship. The Lady Tigers won the title last season while the Hurricanes came away with the crown in 2016. Its always fun to play Gainesville. Im just excited to play and hopefully get another district championship, Giebeig said. JORDAN KROEGER/Lake City ReporterColumbias Caroline Lewis scores a run against Middleburg on S.K. Lewis RBI single in the third inning of Tuesdays District 3-7A semifinal at Gainesville High. TIGERSContinued From 1Bto at the scouting combine in Indianapolis and since wanted to know about the same thing: His past. They already know Im a good athlete. Just know Im not a bad person, said Callaway, who appeared out of shape and was working with his second agent in less than six months. Somebodys just got to believe in me. Callaway also said the recent birth of his first child, a daughter, changed him. Callaway caught 89 passes for 1,399 yards and 11 touchdowns in two seasons at Florida. He hasnt played since the Outback Bowl on Jan. 2, 2017. The Miami native was one of nine Florida players suspended during the 2017 season while being investigated for fraud. According to police, Callaway used a stolen credit card to add $1,970 to his campus bookstore account and then used the money to purchase a high-end computer and fancy headphones. He eventually entered a pretrial intervention program that could result in the dismissal of the felony charges. TEST Continued From 1B Gators falls to Mercer in midweek contestGAINESVILLE Mercer used eight shutout innings from its bullpen to beat Florida 6-4 Tuesday night in Gainesville. Wil Dalton hit his 16th home run of the season, a tworun shot to left. Blake Reese had a RBI single and Austin Langworthy scored on a wild pitch to make it 4-1. The visitors stormed back with three runs in the third inning and tied the game on Le Bassetts two-run double. Mercers Robert Broom was the difference in the game, going six shutout innings with a career-high 12 strikeoutsNoles fall at StetsonDeLAND No. 14 Florida State (29-13) committed five errors, and three of Stetsons five runs were unearned, in the Hatters (3111) 5-3 win over the Seminoles Tuesday afternoon at Melching Field. Austin Pollock (3-4) allowed eight hits in six innings but allowed just one unearned run. Cal Raleigh and Mike Salvatore each had two of FSUs seven hits. In addition to five errors, FSU twice ended an inning offensively on the base paths.ROUNDUP run in the seventh but the sac fly wasnt enough to avoid the season-ending loss. Feagle finished with just one strikeout, yet managed to keep the Lady Indians in contention despite giving up five runs before the sixth. Were really proud of her, Fort White head coach Michele Padgett said of Feagle. She stepped up to the plate. Several years ago Jordan pitched so we knew that she could. She really stepped up to the plate and did what she needed to do. Without three starters, including heavy-hitter Raven Miles, the Lady Indians (11-11) recorded just six hits against the Lady Panthers (7-17). Palatka pitcher Aubrey Brown outdueled her counterpart, going the complete game with four strikeouts. Brown at one point retired nine of 10 straight batters in a freshman performance. We had to hit the ball better, Fort White assistant coach Chad Padgett said. But they fought, and were proud of that. They fought the whole game and didnt give up. Fort White was on the verge of completing the comeback when Savana Terrys sac fly gave her team a 6-5 advantage to end the fifth. The Lady Indians final lead didnt last as Feagle hit four of eight total batters with pitches in the sixth. Fort White couldnt overcome the huge inning, falling in the first round of the district tournament for a second straight year. We told them coming in play the best ball that you can, and well be happy, Michele Padgett said. And they did that. Palatka will face Santa Fe in the todays district semifinal at Keystone Heights.
