By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comNearly four years after she was kicked off the force over a DUI charge that was later dropped, a former Lake City Police officer failed to convince a federal judge she was fired because of gender discrimination. The United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida in March tossed out a lawsuit filed by Staci L. Brownfield, now known as Staci L. Stock, seeking monetary damages in excess of $75,000 for her termination in June 2014. Stock joined LCPD in 2001. She left in 2007, but returned the next year. Around 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 12, 2013, Stock visited Lt. John Stocks house after work, court documents show. She stayed for a few hours and drank a Long Island iced tea, but didnt drink the entire beverage because she spilled some. Stock got in her car to drive home after 9 p.m. Twenty-five minutes later, she reached for her phone and crashed into a guardrail, according to court and law enforcement records. Stock suffered an injury to her leg and an impact to her head, which caused bleeding, but she refused to allow an ambulance to transport her to the hospital.

Tree giveaway to mark Arbor DayBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThe Lake City Columbia County Beautification Committee is partnering with Ellianos and VyStar credit union to add more trees to the area by celebrating National Arbor Day with a tree giveaway. The Lake City-Columbia County National Arbor Day Celebration will take place from 10 a.m. 1 p.m. Friday at Wilson Park on the shore of Lake DeSoto, near Darby Pavilion. Faye Bowling Warren, a Lake City-Columbia County Beautification Committee member, said organizers will give away 400 trees during this years celebration. This years tree variety includes: 200 dogwood trees, 100 red maple trees and 100 Dahoon holly trees. Two trees will be given per adult. To get a tree an event attendee must be a Columbia County resident (ID is required). We usually have a pretty good turnout for this event, Warren said. This is the time of the year when people are thinking about doing something in their yards and sprucing their yards up, and a new tree will be nice. In addition to the tree giveaway, event organizers have added additional giveaways for this years National Arbor Day observation. Weve collected some really nice gifts, Warren said. Door prizes include an outdoor grill, a seed spreader and a weedeater. In addition, gift certificates will also be given away as door prizes. When people come to the event and sign-up for the trees, their names will be placed in the registration box and they will be qualified for the drawing. The prize drawings will take place around 1 p.m. Residents dont have to be present to win, but their name, address and contact information must be included on the registration form. The Lake City-Columbia County Beautification Committee has held a National Arbor Day celebration for at least 15 years, as well as a Florida Arbor Day event, Warren said. We do it in conjunction with our certification as a Tree City, USA designation, she said. We have two big events each year. This years local National Arbor Day Celebration will also feature Stan Shepard, a Florida Forest Service senior forester, as well as booths from the Columbia County Supervisor of Elections Office and the Master Gardeners program.

Courtesy Suwannee County Fire Rescue COREY ARWOOD/Lake City ReporterTrucker killed, motorcyclist hurt in 2 crashes LEFT: A truck driver was killed in a late Tuesda y night wreck along Interstate 10 around exit 292 near Wellborn, Florida Highway Patrol reported. Ar ound 11 p.m. the 2008 Volvo operated by Carlos Bernier Rodriguez, 49, of Miami, entered the north shoulder and hit a tree, the FHP report said. Both the truck and trailer reportedly caught fire and Rodriguez died at the scene. RIGHT: A biker was airlifted to Shands at UF after his motorcycle collided with a passenger car at the intersection of E. Duval Str eet (U.S. 90) and NE Poppy Way Wednesday, a state trooper said. T he wreck happened just after 1 p.m. and FHP Trooper Daniel Martin was taking the preliminary details. He said the man suffered a moderate case of road rash from the crash into the passenger side of the Hyundai Sonata. T he Lake City woman driving the vehicle said she turned and didnt see the motorcycle. Martin said he was traveling west on Duv al, and she was going east attempting a turn across the incoming traffic lanes when the collision occurred. Martin said the man was not wearing a helmet.After Stock failed a field sobriety test, a Florida Highway Patrol officer arrested her for driving under the influence, a misdemeanor offense. Stock also underwent two breath tests, which indicated a blood-alcohol level of 0.137 and 0.133. She spent the night at Columbia County Detention Facility and was released the following morning. Stock says she had gum in her mouth at the time of the breath tests, which can alter the results due to alcohol-based artificial sweeteners, court documents show. Officers failed to check her mouth prior to the tests, and the results were eventually thrown out. As a result of her head injury, Stock says she does not remember who put the gum in her mouth and was not thinking clearly enough to inform officers that it might interfere with the tests. She also maintains that her injuries rendered her unable to perform the field sobriety tests correctly and her use of an asthma inhaler prior to the crash, as well as her inhalation of airbag dust following the collision, may have altered the results. The FHP investigation wrapped up almost immediately after the collision, court documents show, but LCPD didnt start its probe until February 2014. LCPD Sgt. Andy Miles conducted the investigation and recommended sustaining misconduct allegations for unbecoming conduct and violation of laws or rules. Stock appealed, but Miles noted on April 16, 2014 that she had not provided any new witnesses or evidence relevant to the investigation. The appeal was denied and Miles recommendation moved up the chain of command. LCPD Chief Argatha Gilmore approved the recommendation May 23, 2014. Two days later, Stocks supervisor, Sgt. Robert Milligan, recommended she be suspended for nine days. Lake City Human Resources Director Michele Greene questioned whether the punishment was consistent with how other city employees have been disciplined for similar offenses. Greene recalled that a firefighter was terminated after his arrest for lewd and lascivious conduct and before the charges were resolved. Additionally, Greene compared Stocks case to that of another former officer terminated by the city in 2003 following her arrest for DUI. Greene recommended termination given the circumstances. LCPD Lt. Clint VanBennekom and Assistant Chief Gerald Butler agreed with Greenes recommendation. Stock wrote a lengthy memorandum to Butler on June 6, 2014, maintaining her innocence and asking that any disciplinary action be delayed until the conclusion of her criminal case, saying the court would find her not guilty. Butler responded that his recommendation for termination would stand. On June 18, 2014, Gilmore notified Stock of her termination based on the IA investigation. City Manager Wendell Johnson signed off on the decision. Stock appealed through the citys grievance process, but Johnson, as the hearing officer, found no extenuating factors to support overturning the termination, court records show. Stocks criminal case reached a conclusion in October 2014, when, the DUI charge having been dismissed, she pleaded no contest to a reckless driving charge. Stock filed the lawsuit in November 2016, contending several male employees who engaged in similar misconduct received more favorable treatment. Specifically, she mentioned former and current LCPD employees and firefighters. But the circumstances in those cases were different, the court found in March. At the same time, the city came forward with evidence of a legitimate, non-discriminatory reason for firing Stock. Stock offers no evidence from which a jury could conclude this reasoning was not true, much less, evidence that the real reason was gender discrimination, the court wrote. LAWSUITContinued From 1A Innovations in home construction along with the current building trends and designs will be on display to Parade-goers this weekend. Builders today are using many upgrades that make new construction more energy efficient, including high-technology windows and doors and insulation. Some CCBA members participate in the National Association of Home Builders National Green Building Certification Program, a CCBA representative said. Its one of the nations preeminent regulatory bodies regarding efficiency and environmental construction standards, meaning they are well aware of the latest national trends. Zecher spoke to the reputation of the CCBAs membership. The builders who are members of the CCBA are good, reliable builders and they do good, quality work, Zecher said. When builders join, we check their licenses and make sure they are reputable. Being involved with CCBA, there is strength in numbers in our industry locally. The local CCBA provides an avenue to search local builders who are licensed and insured, and this is very important in this day and time. The two day event kicks off Saturday April 28 and runs from 10 a.m. 5 p.m., then continues Sunday from noon 5 p.m. A countywide map with 19 blue blips for the 19 homes on display can be found in this paper, or online at www.lakecityreporter.com or CCBAs website, www.buildcolumbiacounty.com. I hope everyone will check out the map take some time this weekend to visit these homes, talk with the builders and be involved with this exciting community event, said Lake City Reporter and Currents Magazine Publisher Todd Wilson. He said interest in the event was growing and home construction was a positive economic indicator for the area. People are excited that our economy is growing, Wilson said. New home construction is a very good sign of the strength of our local economy. PARADEContinued From 1A Fairgrounds with a community fish fry, said Sarah Wheeler, Columbia County Sheriffs Office records director. The bowling portion of the fundraiser is reserved for 32 teams. Thus far 27 teams have registered. The teams will compete in separate waves beginning at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. We never have a fundraising goal amount, we just want to raise more than we did in the previous year, Wheeler said, noting approximately $32,000 was raised last year. Dinner at this years Fins and Pins will be catfish, fresh mullet, grits, beans and sweet tea. In addition to the bowling (Pins) portion of the fundraiser, the event will also feature a community cake auction and a silent auction. Raffle items will include a barbecue grill, cooler, and a hand-crafted bench made by Florida Youth ranchers. The traveling pin, a bowling pin autographed by Columbia County Sheriff Mark Hunter will also be up for bids along with several items donated by local businesses and individuals.

To the Editor: Consider this. For years our crooked politicians in Washington have allowed lobbyists to succeed in getting tax free status for big sports franchises. Why should football, baseball, basketball, etc. enjoy tax treatment not given to private individuals. The answer these big operators donate tax dollars to campaign funds to swamp groups. If our corrupt Congress would earn their pay, this perk could be eliminated. What benefit does, for example, the NFL provide to our citizens? They gain enormous income by franchising their name and blackmailing local governments, demanding special perks at the expense of the taxpayers. We love the sports they provide but pay dearly for tickets for the privilege of seeing them in action. I believe everyone should pay their fair share when fair taxes are levied. Some politicians welcome lobbyist deals, good or bad, as long as they get their cut. The words dedication and honesty in Washington are replaced with the word greed. The swamp is alive and well. In spite of President Trumps effort to expose them. M. Fred Muskewitz Lake CityPresident Donald Trump is full of surprises major surprises, such as getting elected in the first place. Can he now deliver the biggest surprise of all by getting North Korea to give up its nuclear arsenal, something that just might save the world from annihilation? Probably not, many observers say. They agree it would be hallelujah time if he pulled something like that off in a summit meeting with Kim Jong Un, supreme leader of the socialist slave state. But Kim and his family have spent murderous decades accumulating this power, it is noted, and the point now is not to say goodbye to all of that but to make a more prominent and bullying, threatening North Korea a rich North Korea. True, Kim stopped nuclear testing. He also said there was no need meaning, among other things, that he now has the capability to take out American cities. It is also true that he wants to negotiate the technical end of the war with South Korea, the United States and others. But the main point here may be to get Americas 28,000 troops off the peninsula. The Trump-era sanctions, it is said, have taken a toll, but not to the point of famine, especially since international cheaters have been in ample supply. China could economically crush this neighbor on its border but is not particularly excited about torrents of refugees or displacement of the regime by one less to its liking. A U.S. attack has to seem unlikely, especially with questions of retaliatory might. Kim, say skeptics, may well think he can fool Trump into bunches of goodies and a soft hand with a promise of years-long nuke reductions without enough inspectors around to discover the lie. The right moves by Kim and wrong ones by Trump could therefore leave North Korea as a happy-faced threat to humanity, prompting nuclear proliferation through neighbors starting their own programs or sales across the seas to such eager connivers as Iran. The world would grow more dangerous as Kim got safer. As one analyst has noted, he could figure he will not make the same mistake as Libyas Muammar Gaddafi, who gave up his nukes, saw his government wiped out and was rewarded with assassination. But will Trump be tricked? As was shown in the attack on Syrian chemical weapons, he is surrounded by highly able officials who know how to call the shots. John Bolton, his new national security adviser, will say get all the nukes destroyed as quickly as possible, send in an army of inspectors, do not let up on a military presence and do not ease sanctions until all is done. My own view is that we should be willing to pay for denuclearization, seeing the benefits it will bring along with incentives to act. Whats possible is that Kim thinks here is a president who means fire and fury when he says fire and fury. The sanctions may also portend truly serious harm that the rest of the world cannot yet see. Kim may believe the chief reward of nuclear armament has been to put North Korea in a place to get deals and relationships it might otherwise not have dreamed of. Mission accomplished, Trump said after the Syria strike, and he was right. It is almost certain Syria will not again play tortuous games with chemical weapons. The strike was so precise as not to kill anyone while demonstrating military muscle no one particularly wants to fool with. Mission immolated, should have been the cry of Trumps three Oval Office predecessors concerning their sometimes doltish, dishonest, limp-along policies on North Korea that got us to where we are today. Surprise, surprise, would be a welcome way for the summit to conclude.

They got a generous $80,000-plus grant from Publix for their next project the groups ninth home here but are pushed for time on completing it. The job has to be finished by the end of the year and its going to be close. They could use some help. In particular they need licensed tradespeople, such as plumbers, electricians, HVAC workers, etc. But they could also use anyone with a strong back who can hammer a nail, shovel dirt or carry a few 2x4s.

Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY On this date: In 1607, English colonists went ashore at present-day Cape Henry, Va., on an expedition to establish the first permanent English settlement in the Western Hemisphere. In 1785, American naturalist, hunter and artist John James Audubon was born in present-day Haiti. In 1865, John Wilkes Booth, the assassin of President Abraham Lincoln, was surrounded by federal troops near Port Royal, Va., and killed. (As he lay dying, Booth looked at his hands and gasped, Useless, useless.) In 1945, Marshal Henri Philippe Petain, the head of Frances Vichy government during World War II, was arrested. In 1952, the destroyer-minesweeper USS Hobson sank in the central Atlantic after colliding with the aircraft carrier USS Wasp with the loss of 176 crew members. In 1962, the NASA spacecraft Ranger 4 crashed into the moon as planned after failing to transmit images and data. In 1968, the United States exploded beneath the Nevada desert a 1.3 megaton nuclear device called Boxcar. In 1972, the first Lockheed L-1011 TriStar went into commercial service with Eastern Airlines. In 1986, a major nuclear accident occurred at the Chernobyl plant in Ukraine (then part of the Soviet Union). In 1992, Moscow saw its first publicly observed Russian Orthodox Easter in 74 years. In 2002, Robert Steinhaeuser, an expelled student, went on a shooting rampage at a school in Erfurt, Germany, killing 16 people, plus himself. Trump may surprise us Trump may surprise us TODAY IN HISTORY LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Crooked deals for big sports franchises As matriarch of one of Americas political dynasties, Barbara Pierce Bush, who was the wife and mother of presidents, an honor held by only one other first lady, was more than just the woman behind the powerful men in her family. If Jackie Kennedy was about elegance and class and Nancy Reagan was about influence and control and Hillary Clinton was about smarts and ambition, Barbara Bush was a straight-on, nonsense first lady who did not suffer fools, pretense or personal vanities. Bush didnt let fame, wealth and privilege go to her head. America admired her for her honesty. She practically boasted that her trademark pearls were fake. Despite her public presence, she didnt color her hair. A shock of white locks gave her a matronly look that she could puncture with a sharp tongue and devilish wit, especially during her husbands unsuccessful reelection bid against Bill Clinton. She had her own compass that consistently guided her toward grace and kept her grounded in reality. Two days before she died Tuesday, at 92, she told doctors to stop trying to save her life and just let her die in peace at her Houston home. Thats whats she demanded. That was Barbara Bush. A member of the Greatest Generation, Bushs inner strength sustained not just her husband, President George H.W. Bush, but also her children, including Floridas former Gov. Jeb Bush and President George W. Bush. To the public, she was portrayed as the consummate homemaker and wife to her husband, who rose from Texas oilman to, in 1988, president. But there was no doubt that she was the commander-in-chief of the Bush family. After living through numerous political campaigns, she knew politics, too. In fact, she may have tried to spare her son Jeb the humiliation of his 2016 presidential run. A year earlier, when asked if he should run for president, Bush responded: The last thing this country needs is another Bush in the White House. She later walked that back. And when Jeb took to the campaign trial, she was there, behind him all the way. The only thing fake about Barbara Bush was that set of pearls.Barbara Bush, a no-nonsense first lady Miami Herald Jay AmbroseSpeaktoJay@aol.com Jay Ambrose, formerly Washington director of editorial policy for Scripps Howard newspapers and the editor of dailies in El Paso, Texas and Denver, is a columnist living in Colorado.

The Tigers opened spring practice on Monday.Columbias returning core feels its ready to finally take back district. NCAA begins work on complex reformsBy RALPH D. RUSSOAssociated PressINDIANAPOLIS The most difficult part of the NCAAs attempt to clean up college basketball begins now. Hours after former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice presented the Commission on College Basketballs sweeping recommendations for reforming a sport weighed down by corruption, NCAA leaders set in motion the process for turning those ideas into reality. The NCAA Board of Governors, a group of 16 university presidents and the associations highest ranking body, unanimously endorsed all the commissions recommendations Wednesday. Now its up to various subcommittees, working groups and college administrators to dig into a mountain of work over the next three months as the NCAA attempts to change NBA draft rules, create a new enforcement body, toughen penalties for rules violations, revamp summer recruiting and certify agents. All while trying to get buy-in from organizations that might not be motivated to help. Its going to be a challenge to say the least, NCAA President Mark Emmert said. This is a pace of decision making that the associations really never done on this kind of scale before. The Division I Council, comprised mostly of athletic directors and headed by Miami AD Blake James, has the job of turning the recommendations into rules. That requires feedback from schools, then council votes with some conference votes counting more heavily than others. Each proposal then goes to the Board of Directors, where a majority vote is needed to send it to the Board of Governors for final approval. Its a winding path crossing 351 Division I schools with varied priorities and concerns Panel tells sport to end 1-and-done rule, ban cheaters.PREP BASEBALL Hit party breaks out at Fort White in 15-5 victoryBy ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE There was a bad taste left in their mouths after a come-frombehind loss at Dixie County last month. So the Indians made sure to punish the Bears, exploding for 12 hits in the teams final regular-season meeting Wednesday night. Fort White dominated at the plate and needed just six innings to notch its season-high for runs scored in a game. Fort White shortstop Tyler Shelnut led the hit party, going 3 for 4 with an RBI. Cody Morgan also plated four runs en route to a 15-5 mercy-rule win over Dixie County. We just want to keep playing good (going) into next week, Fort White coach Rick Julius referring to the district tournament. We continue to play good and that hopefully will give us some (more) motivation and self-confidence in ourselves. Fort White sidearm pitcher Ethan Perkins earned the win, surrendering zero runs and fanning three batters in four innings of work. Morgan drives in four runs as Indians score season-high on scoreboard vs. Dixie County.Keys to successERIC JACKSON/Lake City ReporterFort White shortstop Tyler Shelnut tags out Dixie Countys Carlo Williams during the fourth inning Wednesday night.

By JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comSeven wins pushed Columbia to second in the points standings of Region 1-7A at the end of last season. But one loss stung immensely, forcing the Tigers on the road for the first round of the playoffs. And it cost them dearly. The Tigers lost to district champion Lee during the regular season for the second straight year after also losing to the Generals in the 2016 playoffs, and as a result of not winning the district, they were forced to hit the road for the first round of the playoffs. That led to a 36-33 overtime loss to Lincoln. The goal this fall? Get home field advantage for the playoffs and finally exorcise the demon thats been Lee for the past two years. The first step to accomplishing that goal began this week as Columbia opened spring practice. The motivation is Robert E. Lee, said class of 2019 receiver T.J. Jones, who already has 29 collegiate offers. We want to beat Robert E. Lee. We want to stomp on them and beat them bad. Theyve beaten us two years. And we lost in the first round so were bringing a lot of intensity and ever since we were in the ninth grade, coach (Brian) Allen has been putting the EmmertNCAA continued on 5BMatt Kenseth returning to NASCAR with Roush Fenway Racing, 5B.

The Hawks announced the move Wednesday night in a three-sentence statement. The decision was not totally unex pected as Budenholzer was granted permission to interview with other teams even though he is under contract with the Hawks for two more seasons. According to multiple reports, Budenholzer interviewed with the Phoenix Suns for their vacant coaching position last week before withdrawing his name from consideration. Budenholzer now may be a top candidate to coach the New York Knicks. Budenholzer was 213-192 in the regular season and 17-22 in the playoffs in five seasons with Atlanta. The Hawks were an Eastern Conference-worst 24-58 this season.MLBAMERICAN LEAGUE East Division W L Pct GB Boston 18 5 .783 New York 14 9 .609 4 Toronto 14 9 .609 4 T ampa Bay 9 13 .409 8 Baltimore 6 18 .250 12 C entral Division W L Pct GB Cleveland 13 9 .591 Detroit 10 11 .476 2 Minnesota 8 11 .421 3 Chicago 5 16 .238 7 K ansas City 5 17 .227 8 W est Division W L Pct GB Houston 17 9 .654 L os Angeles 16 9 .640 Seattle 13 10 .565 2 Oakland 13 12 .520 3 Texas 9 17 .346 8 NA TIONAL LEAGUE East Division W L Pct GB New York 15 7 .682 Philadelphia 15 8 .652 Atlanta 13 10 .565 2 Washington 11 14 .440 5 Miami 7 17 .292 9 C entral Division W L Pct GB Milwaukee 16 9 .640 S t.

The game marked the return of lefthander Jonny Venters following a six-year absence and four major elbow operations, including three Tommy John sur geries. After being recalled from Triple-A Durham earlier in the day, the 33-year-old Venters used four pitches to retire Chris Davis the only batter he faced on a grounder in the sixth inning. Denard Span ripped a double on Cobbs first pitch of the night, and the right-hander exited during a four-run fifth inning after allowing five runs and 10 hits. Rookie Andrew Kittredge (1-2) got two outs in the fifth to earn his first major league win. NBA PLAYOFFSLeBron blocks shot, hits winning 3-pointer at buzzerNHL PLAYOFFSBruins score 4 in 3rd to beat Leafs in Game 7 Associated PressCLEVELAND LeBron James hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer, a crowning moment for another brilliant performance, to give Cleveland a 98-95 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night in Game 5, putting the Cavaliers within one victory of advancing in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Moments after blocking Victor Oladipos possible go-ahead driving layup, James caught the inbounds pass, took two dribbles and dropped the winner over Thaddeus Young. As Clevelands sellout crowd exploded, James hugged rookie teammate Cedi Osman before jumping on the scorers table to celebrate another of those moments that will define his career. James finished with 44 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists and went 15 of 15 from the line. Kyle Korver added 19 points and Clevelands much-maligned defense tightened just in time as the Cavaliers seized their first lead in the first-round series after being down 1-0 and 2-1. Cleveland can close out Indiana with a win Friday night in Indianapolis. Domantas Sabonis scored 22 points, and Young had 16 for the Pacers.RAPTORS 108, WIZARDS 98In Toronto, DeMar DeRozan scored 32 points, Kyle Lowry had 17 points and 10 assists and Torontobeat Washington in Game 5 to take a 3-2 series lead. Toronto rebounded after losing Games 3 and 4 in Washington. Game 6 is Friday night in Washington. The only team in the NBA to avoid a threegame losing streak this season, the Raptors went 5-0 following back-to-back losses during the regular season, and have not lost three straight since last years second-round sweep against Cleveland. Delon Wright scored 11 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter, and Jonas Valanciunas had 14 points and 13 rebounds for Raptors. John Wall had 26 points, and Bradley Beal added 20 for the Wizards.LEAH KLAFCZYNSKI/Akron Beacon JournalCleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) scores against the Indiana Pacers Victor Oladipo (4) in the third quarter in Game 5 on Wednesday at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. The Cleveland Cavaliers won, 98-95, for a 3-2 lead in the first-round NBA playoff series. Associated Press BOSTON Jake DeBrusk scored his second goal of the game to break a third-period tie, and the Boston Bruins came from behind to beat the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 7 again winning 7-4 on Wednesday night to advance to the Eastern Conference semifinals. Kasperi Kapanen put Toronto ahead 4-3 with a short-handed goal in the second, but Boston scored four times in the third period to pull away. Torey Krug tied it, DeBrusk gave Boston the lead with 14:35 to play, David Pastrnak added a goal with 8:21 left to help clinch it, and Brad Marchand lofted one into the empty net with 51 seconds left to set off a celebration in the stands. Tuukka Rask stopped just 20 of 24 shots for Boston, which will play the Tampa Bay Lightning in the second round starting Saturday. Frederik Andersen had 29 saves for the Maple Leafs, who have not won a playoff series since 2004. They came close in the first round in 2013, when they rallied from a three-games-to-one deficit against Boston and took a 4-1 in Game 7, but the Bruins rallied to win it in overtime. Danton Heinen scored his first NHL postseason goal, Patrice Bergeron had a goal and two assists, and David Krejci had three assists for the Bruins. Patrick Marleau scored twice for the Maple Leafs, who won again won backto-back games after falling behind 3-1 in the series. Game 6 came in Toronto on the night that a man drove a van onto a crowded sidewalk in the city, killing 10 people and injuring more than a dozen others. The teams combined for five goals in the first period before Toronto scored twice in the second, taking a 4-3 lead when Kapanen beat Marchand and scored. In the third, the Bruins scored two 4-on-4 goals after matching penalties opened up the ice. Krug made it 4-4 on a slapper from the point just 1:10 in, and then DeBrusk scored the go-ahead goal when he outmuscled Jake Gardiner in the slot and put it between Andersens legs.

LAKECITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICSTHURSDAY, APRIL 26, 2018 3B DEAR ABBY: I have three sisters who wont come to visit me. I am older and their only brother. We are all in our 50s. We all get along great and have no issues. Seven years ago, I moved away from our hometown in Pennsylvania and bought houses in vacation towns in Colorado and Arizona. I would never see my sisters if I didnt make the trip back home. The problem is, I have an injury that makes traveling very difficult. Over the last seven years, I have gone back twice. I have offered to pay gas or airfare for them if theyll come visit me, but they always refuse. I have now given up and quit offering. They are able to travel to see each other on occasion, but not me. I know they enjoy my company as we go jeeping and kayaking, etc. Their kids love me. Its a shame I may never see them again. What should I do? -BAFFLED BROTHER IN PHOENIX DEAR BROTHER: I agree its a shame their reluctance to come to you may mean that you wont see them again. I think the time has come to ask your sisters to level with you about why they manage to visit one another, but wont do the same for you. When you do, remind them that although you love them, your health no longer permits you to do all the traveling. You cant force them to make the effort, and if they are unwilling after that, you may have to accept that this is the way things are and this is how they will remain. DEAR ABBY: My elderly parents are opposites. Dad is a self-absorbed narcissist with no moral compass. Mom is a Christian woman who is loved by many. When they die, Mom will be missed. When Dad goes, we will mostly feel relief. Would it be acceptable to have a large, lovely funeral for Mom, giving others the chance to pay their final respects, but for Dad, just a small family service? -PLANNING AHEAD DEAR PLANNING: Not only would it be acceptable, it would also be practical since few people pay respects to someone who isnt worthy of respect. DEAR ABBY: I have been married to my husband for 57 years. He has been a good provider and helps me often with errands. However, he has one serious failing. He cant keep a secret. If I tell him something personal and ask him to keep it private, he invariably tells his friends during coffee dates or phone calls. Can you give me any insight about why he does this? I have decided that from now on Ill keep anything I dont want broadcast to myself. -BLABBERMOUTHS WIFE DEAR WIFE: Not knowing your husband, I cant guess why he would betray your confidence. But I do think you have arrived at a wise solution to your problem. He cant shoot off his mouth if he doesnt have the ammunition. Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com Visting is a one-way street for sisters refusing to travel 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): Refuse to let changes made by others influence you. Stick to your own script and trust in your judgment when it comes to your work and your financial future. Use your intelligence, not brawn, to get what you want. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Getting along with your peers will make a difference. Whether at school, at work or during everyday activities, knowing how to handle others will determine how much help you receive as well as how much you accomplish. Physical activity will improve your overall health. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Gather information, ask questions and make a point to do thorough research before making a move. Educational pursuits and talking to experts will help clear up any uncertainty that's holding you back. Someone you love will not be honest with you. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Make alterations that will lift your spirits and add to your comfort and convenience. Explore partnerships you feel have potential; good things will develop. A chance to make a unique change to your living arrangements or lifestyle looks promising. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A formula that has worked for you in the past can work again. Whether dealing with friends, colleagues or relatives, be willing to listen. An open forum will help you gather information that will encourage a solution that suits the majority. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Look for the things you need to follow through with your plans. Prioritize shopping for items that will give you added details and help you be competitive. Show more discipline when dealing with health issues. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Put your energy into self-improvement projects. Feeling good about the way you look or what you know will give you the confidence to make a move that will lead to a better standard of living. Nurture an important relationship. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You can't buy love or respect; you have to earn it. Offer your time, energy and input into situations, and you'll get a better understanding of what needs to be done. Be part of the solution, not part of the problem. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Make a change to the way you look or how you present yourself. Altering your appearance or approach will be well-received and may put you in the running for an advancement. Love and romance are highlighted. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A financial gain is heading your way. Don't let greed cost you. Look at whatever situation you face and make a decision based on facts and figures. Home improvements, real estate and personal investment deals look promising. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Do your own thing. Knowing you've done a great job will give you the confidence to present what you have to offer and to accept and use constructive criticism to further your objective and ensure success. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your work will speak for itself. Youll make a good impression, and an interesting opportunity will be offered. A partnership will be in your best interest, giving you the freedom to pursue what you know and do best. Actress-comedian Carol Burnett is 84. Singer Bobby Rydell is 75.

Call 386-365-8818 and requiring consensus building and compromise for measures to pass. NCAA rule changes can sometimes take a full calendar year to sort out. Weve got to make sure we dont let the good fall victim to the perfect here, Emmert said. Nobody believes were going to get everything perfect the first time through. The independent commission Rice led released a much-anticipated and detailed 60-page report seven months after the group was formed in response to a federal corruption investigation that rocked college basketball. Ten people, including some assistant coaches, have been charged in a bribery and kickback scheme and high-profile programs such as Arizona, Louisville and Kansas have been tied to possible NCAA violations. They believe the college basketball enterprise is worth saving, Rice told the AP of commission members in an interview before addressing NCAA leaders. We believe theres a lot of work to do in that regard. That the state of the game is not very strong. We had to be bold in our recommendations. The proposals were wide-ranging, falling mostly into five categories: NBA draft rules, specifically the leagues 19-year-old age limit that has led to so-called one-and-done college players; non-scholastic basketball such as AAU leagues and summer recruiting events; the relationship between players and agents; relationships with apparel companies; and NCAA enforcement. Some people like some of (the recommendations) more than others, which is human nature, but as a board were unanimous in the endorsement and the acceptance of these recommendations for the NCAA, said Minnesota President Eric Kaler, chairman of the Division I Board of Directors. Its not yet clear how the governing body would pay for some of the proposals, though the NCAA reported revenues of more than $1 billion dollars for fiscal year 2017 in its most recent financial disclosures. The commission offered harsh assessments of toothless NCAA enforcement, as well as the shady summer basketball circuit that brings together agents, apparel companies and coaches looking to profit on teenage prodigies. It called the environment surrounding hoops a toxic mix of perverse incentives to cheat, and said responsibility for the current mess goes all the way up to university presidents. It also defended the NCAAs amateurism model, saying paying players a salary isnt the answer. The goal should not be to turn college basketball into another professional league, the commission wrote in its report. The commission did leave open the possibility that college athletes could earn money off their names, images and likenesses but decided not to commit on the subject while the courts are still weighing in. Rice called the crisis in college basketball first and foremost a problem of failed accountability and lax responsibility.ONE-AND-DONEThe commission emphasized the need for elite players to have more options when choosing between college and professional basketball, and to separate the two tracks. The commission called for the NBA and its players association to change rules requiring players to be at least 19 years old and a year removed from graduating high school to be draft eligible. The one-anddone rule was implemented in 2006, despite the success of straight-fromhigh-school stars such as LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett. Im confident they are going to be very supportive, Emmert said of the NBA and NBAPA. The NBA and players union praised the recommendations on enforcement and expressed concerns about youth basketball. On draft eligibility rules, however, there was no commitment. The NBA and NBPA will continue to assess them in order to promote the best interests of players and the game, they said. The commission did, however, say if the NBA and NBPA refuse to change their rules in time for the next basketball season, it would reconvene and consider other options for the NCAA, such as making freshmen ineligible or locking a scholarship for three or four years if the recipient leaves a program after a single year. One-and-done has to go one way or another, Rice told the AP.ENFORCEMENTThe commission recommended harsher penalties for rule-breakers and that the NCAA outsource the investigation and adjudication of the most serious infractions cases. Level I violations would be punishable with up to a five-year postseason ban and the forfeiture of all postseason revenue for the time of the ban. That could be worth tens of millions to major conference schools. By comparison, recent Level I infractions cases involving Louisville and Syracuse basketball resulted in postseason bans of one year. Instead of show cause orders, which are meant to limit a coachs ability to work in college sports after breaking NCAA rules, the report called for lifetime bans. The rewards of success, athletic success, have become very great. The deterrents sometimes arent as effective as they need to be. What we want are deterrents that really impact an institution, said Notre Dame President Fr. John Jenkins, who was a member of the Rice commission.AGENTSThe commission proposed the NCAA create a program for certifying agents and make them accessible to players from high school through their college careers.AAU AND SUMMER LEAGUESThe NCAA, with support from the NBA and USA Basketball, should run its own recruiting events for prospects during the summer the commission said, and take a more serious approach to certifying events it does not control.APPAREL COMPANIESThe commission also called for greater financial transparency from shoe and apparel companies such as Nike, Under Armour and Adidas. These companies have extensive financial relationships with colleges and coaches worth hundreds of millions of dollars, and Adidas had two former executives charged by federal prosecutors in New York in the corruption case.

Roush Fenway Racing wants to be among NASCARs elite again and recognized it needed help for its ongoing rebuild. The organization called on Matt Kenseth, one of its cornerstone former drivers, and asked him to come back. When Kenseth took the call from team owner Jack Roush, he had just one question: What took the team owner so long to reach out? What took so long is there was a rawness from him leaving me, Roush said Wednesday at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Kenseth launched his Cup career with Roush in 1998 and he won a Cup championship and two Daytona 500s driving for the once-storied team. But he moved in 2013 to Joe Gibbs Racing, where he won 15 of his 39 career Cup victories, and it took Roush some time to get over the betrayal. In the time Kenseth was gone, Carl Edwards also moved to Gibbs and a stumbling sponsorship problem in NASCAR forced Roush to gradually downsize from five cars to the two Cup entries hes fielding this year. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. won two races last year and made NASCARs playoffs, but the organization has struggled to build consistency and get Stenhouse and former Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne running equally. We see a potential for Matt being involved with the company and race team past his driving, Roush said. We certainly feel like hes come home to us. Hes a significant part of the history and legacy. Its a chance to look at our cars and find out if theres something glaring that Matt will see from his experience. Kenseth will split the No. 6 Ford with Bayne, with Kenseths first race coming next month at Kansas Speedway. Kenseth will also enter the AllStar race at Charlotte Motor Speedway, and the rest of his schedule is still being determined. Wyndham Hotels & Resorts joined the organization Wednesday and will likely be on the car when Kenseth drives. Kenseth was available to return to his one-time home because he lost his ride last season when Gibbs had to let a veteran go to make room for Erik Jones amid a wave of younger NASCAR drivers hitting the circuit. It put him on the sidelines for the stafirst nine races of this season.Kenseth returning to NASCAR with RoushAP FILE PHOTONASCAR driver Matt Kenseth (left) and car owner Jack Roush celebrate in victory lane after Kenseth won the NASCAR Daytona 500 in 2012.

Although the Tigers graduated several key players on both sides of the ball, theyre still expected to be loaded with talent in 2019. Cornerback Ahmad Williams returns after spending his junior season in Orlando and hell provide senior leadership along with linebackers Ethan Umstead and Jaylen Brown and defensive tackle Gilshard Newkirk in the absence of S.L. McCall, Marcel Bell and Darien McQuay. Despite losses on the offensive line in Scott Carman and Jevon Williams, Columbia still has plenty of experience in rising seniors Damien Lewis and Zach Bedanbaugh. Then theres the core group of receivers that, in addition to Jones, includes rising senior Bobby Fulton as well as rising junior Marquez Bell and rising sophomore Jaden Williams. Combine that with Lee losing quarterback Derrick Jones and theres plenty of reasons why the Tigers believe theyre poised to retake the district in 2018, even if some people outside of Lake City may not believe so just yet. Lee has beaten us three times in two years. Weve got to get them this year, Fulton said. Weve got nothing to lose. Everybody is expecting us to lose to them anyway so weve got no choice come out with a bang. Weve got to beat them. Allen has had his eyes on this upcoming season for years now. He says the 2019 class was identified early on, even as far back as middle school, as a group that had the potential to make a deep playoff run once it reached Columbia. The groups sophomore year resulted in a regional semifinal loss to Lee. Its junior season was a step back with the loss to Lincoln. Columbia isnt short of motivation this spring. I think the motivation is that this group has always felt like when they got in high school they were going to have a chance to compete and continue to work for a championship, Allen said. I think thats been the motivation, that were up next. Its our turn now and theyre doing a great job of leading. Weve gotten better as far as thats concerned. Ive watched that development from January and February to where were at now. Theyre hungry to surpass our best year and I think thats their motivation. This team can be good. They have a bunch of potential. Weve got to turn it into something. Then theres the 2020 group, which also contributed a lot to the Columbias success last season. Rising junior Jordan Smith is back at quarterback throwing to Bell and the defense has promising cornerbacks in twins Derek and Devin Johnson. That core and nucleus when you look back to last year and the guys that made things happen, theyre back, Allen said. When you combine that 2019 group and 2020 group, I really feel good about the future if we can continue to get better everyday. Said Fulton: Were looking pretty nice and all together. If we just have to come out with intensity, I feel like no one can beat us at all. CHS Continued From 1B JORDAN KROEGER/Lake City ReporterColumbia linebacker Jaylen Brown makes an interception during Wednesdays practice. Brown is one of several players from the 2019 class. Morgan, who struck out four, got the start on the bump but it was Perkins who took over in a jam with the score tied. I was a little iffy about it, but I knew I could pull it out, said Perkins, who took the mound in the third. I think there was a runner on first and second, and I knew I could close it out. Coach put me in for a reason he knew I could do it, so I put that confidence in myself. After the Bears (9-10) registered four runs to knot the score in the third, the Indians (13-9) answered with four of their own in the fourth. Fort White used the big inning to pick up its third straight victory entering Thursday nights regular season finale. Fort White also capitalized on a bevy of errors against Dixie County. The Indians scored four runs on passed balls and devoured five different pitchers in the win. Just mentally, were playing like a team now, Perkins said. Were actually hitting the ball like we should, playing defense and pitching. Its all just coming together. SENIOR NIGHT: Fort White will host Baker County in tonights regular-season finale. All four seniors (Jeremy Barber, Brant Parker, Jacob Sosa and Caleb Mathews) will be honored before the game. Festivities begin around 6:30 p.m. DISTRICT SHAKEUP: Fort White has been pegged as the three-seed for the upcoming District 5-5A tournament. The Indians will face two-seeded P.K. Yonge at 4:00 p.m. Monday at Keystone Heights High School. Top-seeded Santa Fe receives a BYE in the opening round and will face the winner of Fort White/P.K. Yonge on Tuesday.
