The economic development summit proposed by County Commissioner Tim Murphy is set for Monday evening, aiming to provide a forum where representatives from county and city government, the school system, Florida Gateway College and the community at large can settle a question thats lingered for years. What does economic development in Columbia County look like to you? wrote Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Dennille Decker in a summary of the event. Invited panel members are the County Commission and City Council, Superintendent Lex Carswell, Florida Gateway College President Lawrence Barrett, a to-be-decided representative from the Florida Department of Transportation, Greg Galpin of Weyerhauser, local real estate professional Missy Zecher, a to-be-decided developer, businessman Chum ONeal and hotelier Nick Patel.

All panel members have been confirmed except for the FDOT representative and local developer. FGC spokesperson Mike McKee will emcee the event. Audience members wishing to ask a question can fill out a card and take it to McKee, who will ask it on their behalf. Each question will be limited to two minutes. Though any topic can be raised, the main issues are identifying prime locations for development, the North Florida Mega Industrial Park, the development of Bell Road and Ellisville and challenges in doing so. County Commission Chairman Murphy said his intends for the summit to be the start of regular talks between community stakeholders, as well as to a chance for the public chance to participate in the dialogue. At the end of the day, my goal is to put a plan together where the county and the city can start meeting on a quarterly basis to discuss all the needs that must be met to move Columbia County forward, Murphy said. The event will be held at the FGC Wilson S. Rivers Media Center, room 102, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The public is welcome.

Kens BBQ on SR 100 shut down briefly by state health inspectorsBy COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comA local barbecue restaurant was temporarily closed by state inspectors earlier this month after nearly 150 rodent droppings were found throughout the building.

Fla. teen faces custody-interference chargeBy CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comA runaway South Florida teen told officers she fled to Lake City because her grandmother mocks her for cutting herself and threatened to have her put away until she turns 18, according to a Lake City Police Department report. LCPD officers on April 25 received a tip that a social media post from a missing 17-year-old from Hillsborough County, last seen March 24, pinged her at her girlfriends house on Southeast Avalon Avenue, according to the report. The runaways 18-yearold girlfriend, Kimberly Jane Solano, now faces a charge of interfering with the custody of a minor, a third degree felony. Solanos mother told officers the teen had been there, but she kicked her out and she was not allowed at the house, the report states. Solano denied having any contact with the 17-year-old, according to the report. Officers were given permission to search the house, but didnt find her. An officer received a report that the 17-year-old was staying at the Another Way domestic violence shelter in Lake City. An investigator for the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office told LCPD the runaway called her grandmother from Solanos phone at one point. After returning to the Solano home around 8:27 p.m., LCPD officers confronted Solano, saying she had been seen in Tampa picking up the 17-year-old. Solano adamantly denied knowing the runaways whereabouts and said the runaway hadnt been inside the home, according to the report. But an officer walked into the room, looked under the bed and found the 17-year-old. When questioned, the runaway said she gave a fake name to Another Way to stay there, using Solanos date of birth. She split her time between the shelter and Solanos home, according to the report. The runaway said her grandmother makes fun of her for cutting herself and accuses her of doing it for attention, the report states. The runaway had signs of self-inflicted cuts on her arms and said she also cuts her thighs, according to the report. Solano
$235,000 tax bill without the council knowing, Shroyer said. He was getting flak for that. But the issue was an honest mistake on Helfenbergers part, Shroyer said. Shroyer twice made a motion to fire Helfbenberger over the matter, but had only positive remarks about the former St. Cloud city manager when the Lake City Reporter contacted him this week. Joes a good guy, hes very good. Did an outstanding job fixing our financing department, Shroyer said. We were going to be financially in trouble, but Joe came in, took over and we had no issues whatsoever. Helfenberger says he resigned from his previous job after the political climate turned against a project to renovate two historic downtown hotels in St. Cloud and construct a high rise. He said hed been working on a multi-phase project to renovate the St. Cloud Hotel and Hunters Arms Hotel and construct a roughly 10 to 15-story mixed-use building in the citys downtown. Then the 2016 election happened. This particular project just fell to the wayside, Helfenberger said. Three St. Cloud City Council seats switched hands. In July 2017, Helfenberger, who took the job in November 2015, turned in his resignation after it became clear the new council members didnt want to finish what he started. They wanted to go in a different direction than I had been going in, he said. And it was a significant change, so it was no longer a good fit. Helfenberger had secured a $10 million investment from a developer for the project, and in exchange the city would donate a large lot of land downtown. The previous council unanimously approved the deal, and the developer already drew detailed design plans. Helfenberger felt it unwise to completely reverse course at that point. I would have worked to downsize the project if that was desired, but would strongly recommend to still pursue the project, Helfenberger said. Helfenberger is currently the interim city manager for the city of Archer. He describes himself as a strong negotiator with 32 years of experience in local city management, according to his resume. Hes previously worked as the city administrator for Ottumwa, Iowa, the village administrator for the Wisconsin towns of Hobart, Pulaski and Necedah and the village coordinator of North Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. City Council members for Lake City gave Helfenberger 36 of 50 possible points in the search to find a replacement for recently retired City Manager Wendell Johnson. The overall second choice was Danielle Judd, city manager for Green Cove Springs, with 33 points. Glenn Irby, city administrator for Apopka, took third place with 25 points.

Those of you who came out to visit some of the 19 new homes on display Saturday during the first day of the 2018 Parade of Homes made history as part of what many of the builders with homes on display called the largest crowd ever at any Parade of Homes event in Lake Citys past. On behalf of the Columbia County Builders Association and our team at the Lake City Reporter, let me say a heart-felt thank you for taking the time on a beautiful Saturday to get outside and get involved in your community. The better news is there were more than just people browsing. A few homes were sold on Saturday and several contracts were written for future builds. Deals were made. Business was conducted. It is very encouraging to see our housing market returning to a normal, healthy pattern. This Parade of Homes event is monumental. There are 19 new homes on display and open to the public to tour. Today is the second day of the Parade from noon to 5 p.m. and the event is free. These homes will be showcased and available for tours at a leisurely pace and the builders or builders representative will be on hand to answer questions and discuss features of the residence. Today, I noticed the builders are sharing floor plans, discussing the energy-efficiency features of each home and talking in detail about other models they can build or hybrid customize for any customer. There is a map of the locations, with street addresses and the builders name, in todays Lake City Reporter. If you prefer the digital version, an identical copy is available at www.lakecityreporter.com. We are honored to partner with the Columbia County Builders Association to revive this tradition of showcasing new-home construction in Columbia County, and the excitement carries into the second day of this years event. Look for me on the Parade of Homes circuit later today. Ill probably be filming short promotional videos for social media. Please stop and say hello. If you couldnt make it today, I hope you will take a little time today and go see some of our local builders construction work this afternoon during the final day of the 2018 Parade of Homes. You will not be disappointed.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINIONParade continues todaySaturday was a history-making day, but dont sweat if you missed the opening round of the first Parade of Homes in Lake City in 10 years. Theres still today. The Parade is on from noon to 5 p.m. Check it out even if youre not in the market for a new home at the moment. Theres something in the air and you can feel it.

This Parade has made that abundantly clear in a single day. Hope to see you later among the crowd. Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY Todd Wilsontwilson@lakecityreporter.comOn this date: In 1861, the Maryland House of Delegates voted 53-13 against seceding from the Union. In Montgomery, Ala., President Jefferson Davis asked the Confederate Congress for the authority to wage war. In 1913, Swedish-born engineer Gideon Sundback of Hoboken, N.J., received a U.S. patent for a separable fastener later known as the zipper. In 1945, during World War II, American soldiers liberated the Dachau concentration camp. Adolf Hitler married Eva Braun and designated Adm. Karl Doenitz president. In 1946, 28 former Japanese officials went on trial in Tokyo as war criminals; seven ended up being sentenced to death. In 1957, the SM-1, the first military nuclear power plant, was dedicated at Fort Belvoir, Va. In 1968, the counterculture musical Hair opened on Broadway following limited engagements off-Broadway. In 1983, Harold Washington was sworn in as the first black mayor of Chicago. In 1992, rioting resulting in 55 deaths erupted in Los Angeles after a jury in Simi Valley, Calif., acquitted four Los Angeles police officers of almost all state charges in the videotaped beating of Rodney King. In 1993, Britains Queen Elizabeth II announced that for the first time, Buckingham Palace would be opened to tourists to help raise money for repairs at fire-damaged Windsor Castle. In 2011, Britains Prince William and Kate Middleton were married in an opulent ceremony at Londons Westminster Abbey. In 2004, President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney met behind closed doors with the September 11 commission. Crowds made history Saturday PARADE OF HOMESLETTERS TO THE EDITOR The 40th Wellborn High School reunion was held last Saturday and, as a former teacher, I was there. Although Wellborn High School has been closed more than 60 years, these alumni still meet yearly to reminisce and keep alive their memories of happy times at WHS. From the get-go, Emcee Dwight Stansel kept all at ease with his comfortable, down-home way. We started off with a prayer, and then sang a rousing rendition of the old Wellborn Wildcat fight song and with the energy everybody put into it you would have thought the big game was about to start. Then we had the Flag Pledge and sang a stirring rendition of God Bless America. When Dwight emcees, there aint much formality to it. Its more like a group of close friends sitting around a campfire telling stories. Two of Dwights funniest stories involved three ministers who tried to Christianize a bear and the story of a parishioner who finally told his preacher what he meant when he said, Preacher, you are something else. So many dropped by my table to say hello. Donald Connell, Ruth McLeran, Mattie Pearl Lampp, Eddie Joe McLeran, and Connie Hogan Knotts. There was a table full of Kirbys (I wish Robert had been there). It took me back all those years when I first taught there, just out of college and just turned 21 years old. I had bathroom duty and one of the little Kirbys (maybe 3rd grader Donald), saw me coming and yelled to his friends, Yall watch it! Here comes OLD MAN Williams! There were many fond remembrances of long ago teachers now gone on to Glory: H.L. Johns, Paul Smith, OLeta McMillan, Charlotte Sorrell, John Tokheim, John Cameron, and Thelma Geiger. And Bubba Fouraker, Dwight, and others had remembrances of their principal, W.E. Kent, a former marine, who pulled out the BOARD of Education when students got out of line. A Great Day! I hope I can join them again next year!CLASS, LULU, AND FOURAKER REUNIONS 53 will meet in the back room at Beef OBradys Restaurant on Saturday May 12 at 11:30.

6A S UNDAY, AP RIL 29, 2018 LOCAL LA KE CIT Y REPOR TER Girl Scouts go to bat for bats and peopleBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThe resident bat population near Summers Elementary School has new options for roosting spots after a cluster of girl scout troops erected three bat houses in the area. Theyll be comfy and so will people in the area, considering all the mosquitoes, flies and other bugs the bats will be dining on. Trish Bailey, Girl Scout leader of the Wesley cluster (Girl Scout troops 1227, 610 and 2224), said the bat houses are three-chambered and have enough room for up to 300 bats each. The bat houses are on poles more than 16 feet tall, facing south. The bat houses are in the rear of Wesley United Methodist Church near a retention pond. The scout troops hold their meetings at the church. Bailey said 24 girls between the ages of 8-12 took part in the project and several of the girls fathers pitched in to help erect the houses. They liked learning about the bats, Bailey said. They really wanted to go touch the bats because they thought they were cute and furry and I said No. The girl scouts wanted to make a home for the bats because North Florida has colder winters than other parts of the state. We wanted to make a home for them that would be warm in the wintertime, Bailey said. Emily Evans, FWC assistant mammal conservation coordinator for Florida, said there are 13 species of bats in Florida, but not all 13 species live in Columbia County. Evans said Brazilian free-tailed bats, evening bats, big brown bats and Southeastern myotis are bat species that could roost in the bat houses erected by the girls. It provides them an opportunity to roost during the daytime and its also good they have areas for forging, Evans said. If they come to the bat house and forage, they will eat the insects around that area. I think its a really great activity for kids and for the community to put up bat houses so they can become more aware of how important bats are for the ecosystem, Evans continued. I definitely would encourage anyone to put up a bat house in the right area. Theyre definitely going to get good pest control and the bats are fascinating to see as they fly out at night. Florida bats only eat insects, which results in billions saved annually on agricultural pesticides, Evans said. Jess Rodriguez, FWC landowner assistance program employee, said a number of landowners have erected bat houses on their property. We have landowners who range from an acre to thousands of acres that could put up bat houses, she said. ... So putting bat houses in your backyard or at city parks and county parks, if you have permission, mitigates some of the impact from loss of habitat.

Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Patrick Riordan said the killings would undoubtedly color the proceedings, despite having occurred in a different county. Ill be honest with you I dont know how it cant. It appears you know that these shootings at law enforcement are becoming more prevalent, said Riordan. The Public Safety Memorial event is scheduled to be held in the fellowship hall of First Baptist Church in Lake City at 6:30 p.m. Monday. Riordan and other FHP officers stationed in Lake City assisted Gilchrist County Sheriffs Office in the wake of the April 19 shooting. He was among local law enforcement who traveled to Trenton and stood with Sheriff Robert Schultz at his initial press conference hours afterward. When you have an incident of this significance that takes place ... everybody readily pitches in to assist in whatever way they can, Riordan said. On Tuesday, state troopers, police, sheriffs, deputies, conservation, corrections and forestry officers along with firefighters and paramedics who have died on duty with Columbia County connections will be recognized at the Public Safety Memorial. Riordan said recent public safety officers and those dating back to 1880, including a 19th century sheriff, will be remembered. Family and friends of those who died are asked to attend the event, which is open to the public. He emphasized public support and called what he saw along the funeral procession for the two Gilchrist deputies, encouraging. I think its worth mentioning, Riordan said. Theres a lot of people out there that do support law enforcement ... it was an impressive number of people not just law enforcement but civilians as well that went down there to the funeral.

Health fair highlights growing county needsBy COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comA community health fair held in Lake City late last week was organized by a federally funded state program new to the county, a local church and the team of a local congressman. The county coordinator of PACE-EH, Alexis Jacobs, along with leadership from Northside Church of Christ and a host of state and nonprofit health groups were at Richardson Community Center Friday. The event provided a resource for residents with a number of individual health screenings and nutrition information services available in the Richardson gymnasium. The main group behind the Community Resource Health Fair was PACE-EH, or the Protocol for Assessing Community Excellence in Environmental Health. This is its first year in Columbia County, Jacobs said. As coordinator she said, You really get into the community and figure out whats missing, what services kind of arent meeting what they need to be doing and you kind of bridge the gap. She said PACE-EH is unique because those needs are determined by the communities and its stakeholders, which include residents, leaders, organizers and officials. A communitys environment obviously contributes to its health, Jacobs said. Working within the Department of Environmental Health she said her focus was as much on an areas infrastructure as its residents physical health trends. She said in part that was determined by looking at a communitys infrastructure and factors like the conditions of its street Focus is on environments effects on peoples health.

By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comJohn Hubert Highnote, the 59-year-old shooter who killed two Gilchrist County deputies last week, visited a former employer on the same day he left home with two rifles, a handgun and ample ammunition, authorities said during a press conference Friday morning. Gilchrist County Sheriff Bobby Schultz addressed a crowd of reporters 10 a.m. at the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Alachua field office, sharing new details about the man that assassinated GSCO deputies Noel Ramirez, 29, and Taylor Lindsey, 25, at a Chinese restaurant in Trenton last week. I am only going to speak about this person one last time, then send him back to obscurity where he came from, and frankly, belongs, Schultz said. Highnote was described as a balding, overweight white man who was a ghost prior to the shooting. Highnote visited a former employer in Newberry on the day of the shooting, where he worked about two-and-a-half years ago, Schultz said. He fled when workers there recognized him and questioned why he was there. As cowards like him will often do, Schultz said. Authorities did not identify the former employer. Around 3 p.m. April 19, Highnote fired two rounds from inside Ace China in Trenton, hitting both deputies in the head, authorities say. The shooter then returned to his vehicle in the parking lot, where he shot and killed himself before first responders arrived. Whatever we ultimately learn, no motive could ever be enough for the families of Noel and Taylor, Schultz said. Schultz said social media posts purporting to feature Highnotes photo are false. The only photograph of Highnote known to investigators is from his drivers license, which they are declining to release. He had no social media presence and few knew him, investigators said. He was no one before April 19 and thats where he belongs, said Alachua County Sheriffs Office spokesperson Brett Rhodenizer. Highnote had a few run-ins with law enforcement over the last 40 years, mostly for traffic offenses. Investigators do not believe there is a connection between any of those incidents and the shooting. If you want to be part of the solution and not the problem, dont glorify him, Schultz told reporters. Schultz said that if the American populace and the media want to be part of the solution, they should avoid glorifying Highnote. Law enforcement as a whole is getting better at identifying those who are battling mental health issues, Schultz said. We ask only one, simple thing. Please stop shooting. Give us, the deputies, police officers and first responders who arrive, a chance to help you. Please dont shoot us or anyone else. We want to help you. Let us help you. Please dont shoot us. 9A S UNDAY, AP RIL 29, 2018 LOCAL LA KE CIT Y REPOR TER lamps, the presence of abandoned buildings and its sidewalks among others. All of those things, the accessibilty all of that affects the health and safety of a community and the overall quality of life, Jacobs said. She said the northwest side of Lake City along with the Five Points areas were identified as target areas. The statistics that we have on them overall reflects a poor quality of life and health outcome, Jacobs said. She said she developed a survey for residents to raise their concerns about their communities, and action teams were being formed to act on those concerns. The unique thing about PACE-EH is it really, really emphasizes collaboration ... collab oration with the actual community were trying to help, not just organizations, Jacobs said. A lot of grants say this is what you [and] need this is what were going to give. Through a survey, the community and the people who live with in it are deciding what improvements are going to be made ... what do you need, what you want, she said. The healthcare event was held as part of National Minority Health and Equity Month, she said, and was held in part to open dialogue between her organization and its focus communities. Two staffers of U.S. Rep. Al Lawson, who represents northern Columbia County in Congress, have also been instrumental in the program, Tony Hill and Kortney Wesley. The project is in its beginning stages, but Jacobs said its in threat of losing funding come June 30. She said if she cannot garner support for PACEEH to the extent that its grant be renewed it would leave the county after that time. A one-woman team, Jacobs said, I dont want to abandon the project.

The 2018 Parade of Homes, rejuvenated by the Columbia County Builders Association, the Lake City Reporter and Currents magazine, will continue today from noon-5 p.m. Jamie Williams, a real estate professional with the Stewart team at the Rockford Realty Group, said the event was excellent. Weve had a great turnout, lots and lots of traffic, she said. Weve gotten lots of great feedback from the visitors. Williams was helping show a 4-bedroom, 3-bath home in The Preserve at Laurel Lake, which had an upstairs media room, outdoor kitchen and large quartz island, and she said visitors appeared to really like the dwelling. A lot of people absolutely loved the kitchen and the upstairs media room, she said. They really loved the details. The events Platinum sponsorship was provided by First Federal Bank of Florida, while Gold-level sponsorships were provided by Florida Credit Union and Peoples State Bank and Silver level sponsors include Hallmark Realty, Security Safe Co. and United Country Real Estate Dicks Realty. From homes with eightfoot doors, quartz or granite counter tops, to homes with pools, electronic slid ing doors and smart homes where all the electronics were controlled by the homeowners, the 2018 Parade of Homes showcased a variety of homes in a variety of price ranges with differing amenities and options. A few miles away on Jewel Lake Drive, Brittany Dunn, who works with GSMS Developers, was also having a busy day showing homes to large groups of people at The Reserve at Jewel Lake. The Parade of Homes has been absolutely wonderful from the get go, she said. From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. weve been wide open and there were people coming in. Its been a constant influx of individuals looking for houses and remodels. Dunn said their homes have full-time generators to combat power outages, which pleased customers looking at their homes. The plethora of housing designs, options and alternatives generated curiosity, and there was no telling who would be seen in the next home asking questions about its design, options or floor plans. Keith Leibfried, First Federal Bank of Florida president, was one of many people looking through the homes Saturday. We were proud to sponsor the event, he said. Weve seen lots of traffic here and lots of people interested in these new houses. Leibfried lives in the neighborhood and he, too, wanted to visit the new sites during the 2018 Parade of Homes. I think the homes are very good looking, high quality and this is a good neighborhood, he said. I havent seen any of the other homes in the other neighborhoods. Im surprised by all the traffic. This is exciting. Promoting the event turned out to be extremely important in drawing a huge crowd. By all accounts, Saturdays crowd was a record turnout and I sincerely thank everyone for coming out, said Todd Wilson, Lake City Reporter publisher. The Lake City Reporter delivered the message and informed the community and theres your response. People read their daily community newspaper. Were proud to serve this community.

The Utes were the 18th school to do so, offering Columbia wide receiver T.J. Jones a scholarship that certainly wouldnt be his last. As they prepared to make their offer to the rising senior, Utah wide receivers coach Guy Holliday had a few words for Columbia coach Brian Allen, words that havent left his mind in the nearly two months since. He said, Ive had 23 receivers in the NFL and this kid is the best Ive seen at this stage going into his senior year, Allen recalls. Thats a big statement. Jones still has his own statement to make as spring football gets underway. That may seem a bit surprising, considering he now has a total of 29 offers, but he still has a chip on his shoulder for a couple different reasons. Power 5 conference schools such as Florida, Nebraska, Oregon, South Carolina and Ole Miss are just the latest to make offers this month. But the offers have just started to pick up speed recently, as Jones only had three schools on him before the start of the year. Then there are the recruiting services like Rivals, 247 Sports and ESPN, which dont have Jones rated with a single star, despite a junior season where he caught 31 passes for 738 yards and six touchdowns in 11 games. Jones has a message for everyone out there who arrived late to the party. And for those who have yet to show up. I want to wake everybody up because I feel like people are still sleeping on me, said Jones, who is 6-foot-1, 185 pounds. Ive always felt like Ive been a sleeper and now that coaches are starting to talk me theyre like, man, you might be one of the best receivers that weve seen in Florida, and theyre noticing it late and I want them to notice it early. This year Im just going to continue to play har d, dont let it get to my head because really Im humble so it doesnt really get to me. Im just going to continue to ball and let them know what theyve been missing out on. So how does a kid who isnt rated by any recruiting service suddenly grab so much attention at a lightning-quick pace? Call it the trickle down effect. Jones first three offers all came from the American Athletic Conference USF, Cincinnati and UCF. Then Duke offered, and just like that, other Power 5 schools took notice.

Hylton and his son, 61-yearold James Hylton Jr., died at the scene of the crash, which happened on Interstate 85 in Carnesville a little after 6 a.m., according to the Georgia State Patrol. Both were from Inman, South Carolina. Investigators said the vehicle traveled off the left side of the road and hit an embankment, killing two passengers and leaving the driver severely injured. Franklin County Deputy Coroner Clayton Bryant said the three men had to be extricated from the GMC truck, which was pulling a trailer carrying a race car and other equipment. The drivers name was not released. Bryant said he was transported to a hospital in Greenville, South Carolina, for treatment of injuries including several broken bones. Franklin County borders South Carolina. No other vehicles were involved in the wreck. The State Patrol said it was still investigating and had not determined whether to cite the driver. The elder Hylton started 602 races in the Cup Series and won two races in a career that began in 1964. He finished second in the points standings three times. Born on his familys farm in Virginia in 1934, Hylton started driving in his fathers Ford Model T. His brother taught him how to work the pedals. Hylton worked on the farm to help his family make ends meet during the Depression. From that humble beginning, Hylton embarked on a winding career in motor sports. He served as a mechanic for Rex White and then as crew chief for Ned Jarrett in the early days of NASCAR, then got back behind the wheel and placed second in the Cup standings in 1966. Hylton also finished second in points to Richard Petty in 1967 and 1971. His victories came at Richmond in 1970, Talladega 1972. Retired NASCAR driver James Hylton killed in car wreck on I-85 HyltonBy MARK LONGAssociated PressJACKSONVILLE The Jacksonville Jaguars used the NFL draft to build for the future, not necessarily this fall. They used every pick on down-the-road starters instead of filling pressing needs. Its a luxury rarely seen in Jacksonville, which made the AFC championship game in January after a decade of failure and futility. The Jags return 18 of 22 starters from a team that led the NFL in rushing and ranked second in total defense. Top executive Tom Coughlin and general manager Dave Caldwell liked the teams makeup enough that they actually made a best-player-available pick in the first round when they added Floridas Taven Bryan to a defensive line that includes Pro Bowlers Calais Campbell, Malik Jackson and Jags use NFL draft to build for future, not this coming fall SEE GATORS 4B SEE JAGS 2B B1

Tampa Bay then returned to an emphasis on defense with its final two sec ond-round picks, taking cornerbacks M.J. Stewart from North Carolina and Auburns Carlton Davis. The Buccaneers closed out Friday night by picking Humboldt State guard Alex Cappa in the third round. Tampa Bay selected Washington defensive tackle Vita Vea 12th overall during Thursdays first round. Were getting five guys that can help us either in the immediate future or some point down the road, Tampa Bay general manager Jason Licht said. Finding a running back capable of easing the burden on quarterback Jameis Winston to carry the offense was a priority addressed by Jones selection with the 38th overall pick. I can score from anywhere on the field, Jones said. Ive always been a home-run threat. Jones rushed for 1,550 yards and 19 touchdown for USC last season. He averaged 6.1 yards per carry and scored 39 rushing TDs during his three years with the Trojans. The Bucs havent made the playoffs since 2007 and havent won a postseason game since the franchises 2002 run to a Super Bowl title. Jones said when he visited with the Bucs, it felt like how I did when I went to USC, it just felt like home. Playing in the NFL and reaching the Super Bowl have long been Jones goals. Ive got one down, got to get the other for my dad, for myself and for the organization, Jones said. Jones father died when he was a sopho more in high school. He definitely told me that everything that glitters isnt gold, Jones said. Never forget who I am, stay true to yourself. Those words from my father I never for get, theyre always echoing in my mind.

Fort Whites Kobie Archer (above) performs a tackling drill Friday afternoon. Thomas Suge Williams takes a drink during the hot practice. still you have the mentality like were supposed to keep going so youre going to bring that into spring and put that effort in. Fort White looks to build on last years 7-4 record. The Indians strive to do so with a Â loaded senior class, along with a few key junior returners. Underclassmen are also making their presence felt on the practice field, says head coach Demetric Jackson. Were looking good, I am pleased with the effort, the 11th year coach said. I am really pleased with the progression from November (leading) up to the start of fall. From film study to the weight room to really buying in to what were doing. We got some young guys that we knew the program would be important to them. And now theyre doing what it takes in the weight room and classroom, but they also did film study. They came out here and learned what were doing offensively and defensively. You can see just (how good) were lining up in week 1 thats a really positive thing. Several of Fort Whites young players received ample playing time last season. And the experience only helps the Indians as they return to practice more balanced on both sides of the ball. Fort White could be done with the usual one-platoon system. We have enough guys where we can have an offensive personnel and defensive personnel without switching people around, running back Corey Dryden said. So now some people who had to keep switching sides can get a break and do better on their own part. Its typically rare for schools of Fort Whites size to have this opportunity to compete with a two-platoon system. The change perhaps could be a big boost for the Indians, who sometimes were fatigued during fourth quarters of games last season. Thats the other big advantage we have, Jackson said. This is the first year that Corey (Dryden) is the only guy thats going to play any defenseThats a huge advantage for us because we havent been able to do that. After an eye-opening first week, Jackson says the team will pick up the pace in next weeks practice. Despite the clearer personnel groupings, he says cross-training will still be conducted as the top-heavy team tries to add depth at certain positions. Team morale is high following the opening week of spring ball. Theres been plenty to rave about when it comes to the younger returners. But Jackson says it will be his seniors who he expects to be the glue, leading the Indians into the fall season. This is a bigger senior class than what we had last year, Jackson said. And I think its going to be important that they lead by example We have some guys were really counting on to be vocal leaders because theyve played a lot. NEW TRANSFER: Gainesville cornerback Donovan Jenkins has transferred to Fort White and is slated to suit up for the Indians. Jenkins is a lockdown corner who had 37 tackles last season. The rising senior helps fill a void of losing Javiel Jones, who registered six interceptions last season. We think he could be just good as weve had in a while, Jackson said. QUARTERBACK PLAY: Fort White rising sophomore Brayden Summers and rising junior Emmitt Philpot are competing for the starting quarterback job. Philpot, who was the junior varsity signal-caller last season, is competing with Summers. Summers, who played sparing as a freshman, has the edge so far, Jackson says. SCHEDULE OUT: The 2018 schedule has been finalized. Fort White is to play at Suwannee (8/24), Providence (8/31), at Santa Fe (9/7), Taylor County (9/14), Bradford (9/21), Williston (9/28), at Union County (10/12), Dixie County (10/19), at Newberry (10/26) and Parker (11/2). Spring game versus North Florida (5/18). TIWAHE Continued From 1BYannick Ngakoue. We want the competition. We want it as much as we can get it, Coughlin said following the three-day draft Saturday. Thats the one thing in our game that makes everybody better. These people were drafted to be football players, whether its a starter or whatever. It takes everybody. Bryan was the first of several Jacksonville draft picks expected to be backups as rookies. The Jaguars envision LSU receiver DJ Chark (second round), Alabama safety Ronnie Harrison (third) and North Carolina State right tackle Will Richardson (fourth) as eventual starters, but neither of them is considered a plug-and-play guy. If they come in and play that is a bonus, too, Caldwell said. We are not just going to say, Hey, take it easy for the next two years. Those guys have to come in and compete. ... Competition is great. The more depth you can have and be prepared for any situation then the better off you will be. Here are some other things to know about Jacksonvilles draft, which included Nebraska quarterback Tanner Lee (sixth round), Wisconsin linebacker Leon Jacobs (seventh) and Mississippi State punter Logan Cooke (seventh). TAKING A CHANCE: The Jaguars took a chance with the 129th pick on Richardson, who was suspended twice in three years at North Carolina State. The 6-foot-6, 306-pound Richardson started 30 games at right tackle for the Wolfpack. He was suspended for the first two games last season for what he said was a marijuana-related violation. As a redshirt freshman in November 2015, he was arrested for allegedly driving while intoxicated. He was suspended one game for that and served a university-imposed suspension for the 2016 spring semester. Ideally, we dont like any baggage, Caldwell said. We dont like to have to answer these questions on a day like today, but we also understand some of these players have a past and hopefully they grow from their past and become fine, upstanding citizens. The time that his discipline ended to this point and time in the draft and all the research and background checks and everything weve done on him has led us to believe that hopefully thats behind him now. Time will tell, and its up to him to make sure that he holds his end of the bargain up. Richardson will compete at right tackle with 31-yearold Jermey Parnell, and if he doesnt win the job, would be the teams swing tackle in 2018. DEVELOPMENTAL QB: Jacksonville added a third quarterback when it drafted Nebraskas Tanner Lee in the sixth round. Lee will compete with Cody Kessler for the backup spot behind Blake Bortles.

S UNDAY, APRIL 29, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER 3B Thermacell the Greatest Product Ever InventedBy MONTY STEPHENSSpecial to the Reporter Granted, its an exaggeration to say Thermacell is the greatest product ever invented. I would think electricity or the wheel would have a higher level of significance to society. But ask anyone who has ever sought refuge from an insect assault by activating their Thermacell how great this product is. Im sure they will attest to its greatness. In case you dont know what a Thermacell is, it is a device sold in sporting goods stores to repel mosquitos. The target consumer seems to be deer hunters, campers and fisherman. This product is great for anyone who spends time outside. Before I discovered Thermacell, my time outdoors was an experience in getting bit by mosquitos. I tried non-scented insect repellants and a bug suits. Insect repellants work wellfor a while. But they only stop mosquitos from landing on you. They still buzz around searching for an opening in your defenses. When they find this opening, they complete a touch and go landing on your skin. This creates an itch. When you scratch the itch. The repellant is gone. Bugs suits worked OK. But they are expensive, hot to wear in warm weather and have just about disappeared from stores. Because of mosquitos, I gave up on early season deer hunting and camping. There is nothing worse than being in a tent and hearing a mosquito buzz. At that point you know you will be bit because its too dark to track the mosquito down. The solution to that problem would have been turn on the Thermacell. In 10 minutes, the mosquitos are gone. If you are fishing for mullet in Suwannee and the Sand Gnats are making life miserable, turn on the Thermacell. In 10 minutes, no more sand gnats. Thermacells work by heating up a cardboard pad saturated with an insecticide. It creates a vapor from the insecticide allethrin. The active ingredients are clearly listed on the package. From an internet search, I found that allethrin is a derivative of pyrethoid. These chemicals are synthetic versions of the naturally occurring insecticide found in the Chrysanthimum flower, Pyrethrin. As the Thermacell pad heats up, its blue color slowly changes to white. When the entire pad turns white, the insecticide is gone. This process takes about 2 hours. Thermacell states the vapor emitted by their machine is not harmful to humans. When using a Thermacell, you will be able to faintly smell the vapor. But somehow deer and other animals are not alarmed by the odor The Thermacell uses a small flame to heat the pad. A cartridge of butane serves as the fuel for the flame. The butane cartridge lasts about 4 hours. The machine has a built-in electrostatic ignitor, just like a gas grill, only smaller. So once the machine is set up with a butane cartridge and pad, one only needs turn the gas dial to on and push a small button to ignite the flame. Its a very easy process. Cost of the Thermacell machine is about $20. All of the machines come with a few pads and a butane cartridge. Thermacell sells a box of three additional pads and one butane cartridge for around $8. If someone wanted to cut costs, there are knock-off versions of the pads from China on EBAY for about of that cost. When I run out of butane cylinders, I always seem to have extra insecticide pads. Thermacell does not sell just the butane cylinders. So I found out the cylinders can be refilled for just about 20 cents. Look up how to do this on Youtube. So with summer coming, so are the mosquitos. Dont curtail outdoor activities because of mosquitos. Instead, get protected. Thermacell is certainly worth a try.COURTESY PHOTOSIdeal for hunting, fishing, or camping, the ThermaCELL Personal Mosquito Repellent Unit (right) with Earth Scent is simple, easy to use and keeps large areas safe from mosquitos. Cost of the Thermacell repellent machine is about $20. FWC discusses Gulf red snapper management, creates Gulf Reef Fish State For-Hire program for 2018-2019From staff reportsAt the April 26 meeting in Fort Lauderdale, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) discussed Gulf red snapper management, including the 40-day Gulf recreational season (June 11-July 20, 2018), and approved the creation of a Gulf Reef Fish State For-Hire program for 2018 and 2019. This program will enhance management efforts by requiring for-hire operations that target or harvest certain reef fish in Gulf of Mexico state waters (excluding Monroe County) to report their intention to harvest these species. To learn more about the 40-day recreational red snapper season in Gulf state and federal waters visit MyFWC.com/Fishing and click on Saltwater Fishing, Recreational Regulations and Snappers. For-hire operations that do not have a federal reef fish permit but target reef fish in state waters will need to sign up for the Gulf Reef Fish State For-Hire program before targeting any of the following species: red snapper, vermilion snapper, gag grouper, red grouper, black grouper, gray triggerfish, greater amberjack, lesser amberjack, banded rudderfish and almaco jack. This effort is part of a fishery-management pilot program (also referred to as an Exempted Fishing Permit) that allows the FWC to manage recreational red snapper harvest in Gulf state and federal waters off Florida in 2018 and 2019.

Harrison Konsker and Maccabee Herman started the 501(c)(3) nonprofit in 2014, when the young anglers were in eighth grade. We were simply catching too many fish. We knew we could do something with the excess fish to benefit the community, said Konsker. Harrison, Maccabee and their fellow volunteers catch, fillet, package and deliver the fish to local nonprofits like Boca Helping Hands, a nonprofit that provides food and other assistance to those in need. According to Boca Helping Hands, Fillet for Friends has helped feed more than 4,500 people in need. They also encourage other anglers to practice eco-conscious fishing techniques and donate their catch to people in need. Fillet for Friends members Ben Mores, Max Feldman, Colin Riley and Emily Elhilow were also honored at the April Commission meeting. All were presented with certificates of appreciation from the FWC for their hard work and dedication. The out-of-the-box thinking and ingenuity of this project is a great example of what youth who grow up participating in outdoor sports and conservation activities can accomplish, said Vice Chairman Robert Spottswood. Its really inspirational for us. We also want to extend our thanks to Capt. Bill Kelly of the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association for championing the efforts of this group. I was overwhelmed at the concept of Fillet for Friends and even more so to learn that it was born in the minds of several young men so willing to help others, said Kelly. Its absolutely amazing what these young men and women organized in such short order. B3

Nash had two goals and Bergeron, Pastrnak and Marchand combined for 10 points Saturday, helping the Bruins pull away for a 6-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 1 of the best-of-seven series. Bergeron also scored twice, Marchand had a goal and two assists, and Pastrnak finished with four assists in a dominating performance. Tuukka Rask stopped 34 shots for the Bruins, who finished one point behind Tampa Bay for the Atlantic Division title, as well as the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. Dan Girardi and Mikhail Sergachev scored for the Lightning, who trailed 3-2 entering the third period. Marchand and Bergeron hiked Bostons advantage to three goals before Jake DeBrusk added an empty-netter with 6:19 remaining. The Bruins had just 10 shots against Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy over the last two periods, but made the most of the limited opportunities. Game 2 is Monday night at Amalie Arena. Rask won three of four starts against the Lightning during the regular season, with Tampa Bays lone victory coming in the final meeting. Pastrnak assisted on each of Bostons first three goals and added another on Bergerons third-period goal, giving him 12 helpers in eight playoff games. Nash, meanwhile, got his second and third goals of the postseason, scoring on the power play at 17:11 of the opening period and 12:33 of the second to put the Bruins up 3-1. Sergachev countered on the power play, trimming Tampa Bays deficit to 3-2. BRENT KUYKENDALL/Lake City ReporterColumbias T.J Jones moves through traffic during the regular season finale against Bolles last year. Jones offer listNebraska Florida Oregon South Carolina Ole Miss Texas A&M Rutgers FAU East Carolina Troy Michigan State Utah Georgia Southern Tennessee Liberty Purdue Louisville Minnesota South Alabama Pittsburgh FIU Boston College Maryland Wake Forest Illinois Duke UCF Cincinnati USF too far behind. Schools out of the Big Ten also caught wind of the young talent in the small town of Lake City, with Illinois, Minnesota and Maryland all offering before the end of February. When you hear Duke, that one pops, Allen said. You started hearing from some of your Power 5 conferences. Youre telling those guys when they come in that this kid is about to blow, dont wait, and they do. They wait, but then the bigger offers started coming in and everybody now are attaching eyes to this kid and looking at film. But it was the Louisville offer on Feb. 28 that Jones says truly started the domino effect. Purdue offered Jones that same day, beginning a stretch of 17 offers over the course of the next 49 days. Nebraska was the most recent school to offer him on Apr. 17. After I got the Louisville offer it just sparked. The whole recruitment process took off, Jones said. Its crazy. Its totally a blessing. Once one big school came, more and more just kept coming. They see that and they find me. Texas A&M was one of those schools and Jones took his only official visit to date to College Station on Apr. 15 (hes taken unofficial visits to USF and Ole Miss). He rated that trip a after touring the facilities and spending time with new head coach Jimbo Fisher. Jones even changed his profile picture on Twitter to an image of himself wearing a Texas A&M jersey. It was nice up ther e, Jones said. They had nice facilities. The people are down to earth. They love Florida guys. They just love Florida guys so much. They were treating me good and how I wanted to be treated. But dont get too excited just yet, Jones isnt committing to the Aggies anytime soon. In fact, he says he doesnt even have a top five or top 10 list as it stands right now. With so many schools to keep track of and so many coaches to stay in touch with, Jones admits its been a bit overwhelming. Thats why Jones says isnt taking any more visits until after Columbias spring game against Bartram Trail on May 18. Right now, Im just focused on being the best I can be in the spring at Columbia so Im taking a break from that, he said. There have been plenty of big names to walk the halls at Columbia during Allens tenure but Jones is by far the biggest since offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil, who signed with Ole Miss in 2013. Tunsil was a five-star recruit with a lengthy offer list that included Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma, USC, Notre Dame, Florida, Miami and basically every program south of the Mason-Dixon Line. Jones offer list may mirror Tunsils by the time early signing day arrives in December, but he isnt letting the hype get to his head. Besides, Allen wont let it. His drive should be the schools that havent offered him when he goes out and has all of these numbers, Allen said. He should want to make sure that Alabama is now going to check him out or Miami is going to check him out or Georgia is going to check him out the schools that played for a national championship last year to the point hes going to impress them enough where they have to take a look at him and consider him. But he just has an inner drive in himself to want to succeed and excel and the work hasnt slowed down with him, I can assure you that with the offers that have come.

The failed drug test was just the latest problem for the 21-year-old Callaway, who was suspended all of last season as part of an investigation into felony credit card fraud. Callaway also was cited for marijuana possession in May 2017, stopped by police while riding in a car with a career criminal. And he was part of a Title IX investigation in 2016 that centered on an alleged sexual battery. Callaway caught 89 passes for 1,399 yards and 11 touchdowns in two seasons with the Gators.

Associated PressBOSTON Wilson Ramos went deep again and scored on Denard Spans inside-the-park homer, helping the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Boston Red Sox 12-6 on Saturday for their eighth consecutive victory. Its the longest win streak for Tampa Bay since taking nine in a row in July 2014. The resurgent Rays have won nine of 10 overall to move within one game of .500 at 12-13. Johnny Field and Carlos Gomez also connected for Tampa Bay, and Matt Duffy finished with four hits. Fields three-run drive in the ninth was his first career homer. Ramos belted a two-run shot in the third against David Price, extending his homer streak to three games. Boston lost for the fifth time in seven games. It also had to replace star outfielder Mookie Betts after the fourth inning due to tightness in his right hamstring. Rafael Devers homered for the Red Sox, and Price (2-3) was charged with six runs, five earned, and eight hits in 5 2/3 innings against his first major league team. Ryan Yarbrough (1-1) got the win with four innings in relief of rookie starter Yonny Chirinos, who recorded just six outs. Gomezs leadoff drive in the seventh made it 7-5, and Fields extended Tampa Bays lead with a drive to left against Brian Johnson. The first of the Rays three homers never left the park. Ramos led off the second with a double and scored when Spans sinking line drive got past Jackie Bradley Jr. and rolled slowly to the wall in center. Span was already at third by the time Andrew Benintendi got over from left and fielded the ball. Initially called a threebase error on Bradley, the call was changed the following inning and Price was tagged with two earned runs.Ramos homers, Rays beat Boston B4

The miniature leadless Transcatheter Pacing System (TPS) is a new type of heart device, approved for Medicare reimbursement, that provides patients with the most advanced pacing technology at one-tenth the size of a traditional pacemaker. The first procedure at was performed earlier this month. Bradycardia is a condition characterized by a slow or irregular heart rhythm, usually fewer than 60 beats per minute. At this rate, the heart is unable to pump enough oxygen-rich blood to the body during normal activity or exercise, causing dizziness, fatigue, shortness of breath or fainting spells. Pacemakers are the most common way to treat bradycardia to help restore the hearts normal rhythm and relieve symptoms by sending electrical impulses to the heart to increase the heart rate. Comparable in size to a large vitamin, physicians at LCMC have elected to use the Leadless TPS because unlike traditional pacemakers, the device does not require cardiac wires (leads) or a surgical pocket under the skin to deliver LCMC continued on 2CCOURTESY LCMCDr. Steven Roark discusses the tiny new lifesaving device with a patient.

It seems like a good time for it, when youre in the beginning stages of getting your finances in order. Bob Dear Bob, You could certainly do that if you want, possibly even through your place of employment. Im a big fan of folks having long-term disability insurance when theyre in their prime wage-earning years. But short-term disability is something Ive always considered to be gimmick insurance, and thats something I dont recommend or buy. I get the argument, too, that short-term disability coverage usually isnt very expensive. But during the first two Baby Steps getting a $1,000 beginner emergency fund set aside, and paying off everything but the house youre trying to limit expenses as much as possible. Chances are you wouldnt need it in Baby Step 3, because that covers your full emergency fund of three to six months of expenses. Hope that helps, Bob! Dave Dear Dave, My husband and I are trying to buy a house, but we both have low credit scores, so were having trouble securing a loan. Weve heard you talk about getting a mortgage loan with no credit score. Is this the same as a low credit score? Laura Dear Laura, No, it is not. No credit score, means you dont have any credit or your credit score is indeterminable. A low credit score indicates youve had or still have debt in your life, and you havent done a good job of paying creditors on time. Two things will help solve the problem of having a low credit score. One is time. If youve had instances of late payments from years ago, time will help heal that to a degree. The older late issues become, the less they count against you. But my guess is you two probably have some bad debt. By bad debt, I mean things that were never paid, or accounts that are in collections. If thats the case, you need to contact those people, and settle those debts in full and in writing as quickly as possible. Officially close the accounts, too, before you try to buy a home. When it comes to buying a home, Laura, I always advise folks to first be debt-free and have an emergency fund of three to six months of expenses set aside.

Instead, the device is small enough to be delivered through a catheter and implanted directly into the heart with small tines, providing a safe alternative to conventional pacemakers without the complications associated with leads all while being cosmetically invisible. The TPS is also designed to automatically adjust pacing therapy based on a patients activity levels. The TPS also incorporates a retrieval feature to enable retrieval of the device when possible; however, the device is designed to be left in the body. For patients who need more than one heart device, the miniaturized TPS was designed with a unique feature that enables it to be permanently turned off so it can remain in the body and a new device can be implanted without risk of electrical interaction. The TPS used at Lake City Medical Center was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in April 2016, and has been granted Medicare reimbursement, allowing broad patient access to the novel pacing technology. LCMCContinued From 1C Dave RamseyCEO of Ramsey SolutionsDAVE SAYS Backyard beekeepers help save pollinatorsBy KELLIE ANN BENZThe Mercury NewsIf you think you hear buzzing in San Mateo County lately, youre right. And its this buzzing that could help to save the struggling Honey bee in California. Honey bees are becoming a popular backyard hobby for San Mateo residents. And, for the most passionate protectors of this vulnerable species, a lucrative pastime. They also could be helping Californias agriculture, with more than 1.5 mil lion Honey bee colonies required to pollinate over 850,000 acres of California almonds, according to the E.L. Nino Bee Lab at UC Davis. My brother in Ireland has bees, explained John Lenihan over the phone about the inspiration to start keeping bees in his adopted hometown. His kids loved it, so I thought Id see if mine were interested. Turned out they were. Since 2015, his daughter Delaney, 12, and son Jack, 10, have harvested honey from their San Mateo backyard hive in Hayward Park and on Sundays, sell it from a sidewalk table outside Ninis Cafe on N. Idaho Street. They also joined the Bee Keepers Guild of San Mateo, a long-established group of Honey bee keepers that holds regular classes and meetings to support bee keepers in the area. According to the Guilds last recorded census in 2013, the county is home to 688 colonies, some that have survived since 2004. The Guild is currently conducting its 2016-2017 census. But its not all good news. The E.L. Nino Bee Lab website explains: In the United States alone, approximately 30 percent of Honey Bee colonies are lost each winter due to the combined effect of various pests, pathogens, environmental toxins, and poor nutrition. The species is doing ok, said Elina L. Nino, assistant extension apiculturist for the eponymous lab. But its still losing colonies each year. Nino explained that local backyard beekeepers help to spread awareness and educate the public on the species and provide valuable research on hive management. She said her lab is just beginning to roll out a citizen science project to collect data from novice or hobby beekeepers throughout the state. We need to have a better understanding about how landscape plays into their survival, Nino said. But right now, education is the vital role in the Honey bee survival. Guild secretary and education and outreach coordinator, Kendal Sager, estimates she makes 50 percent of her annual income from teaching kids about bees. For the last eight years, Sager has been touring Bay Area schools sharing her knowledge about bees. She charges $100 for the first class, and $45 for additional classes and also sells honey from her own Los Altosbased farm, Kendals Bees. Carefully monitored backyard colonies help to save the Honey bee, Sager says. Bees are responsible for one-half of our food supply, Sager explained after teaching a pre-K class in San Mateo last week. Without them, our almond supply would dry up. Bees are so tiny, but so interesting, said Delaney. I never thought you could learn so much about them, there are new discoveries every day. They are the easiest backyard crop to keep, easier than chickens, Sager said. Mostly because in our climate here they can keep over winter. Last year alone, Sager produced one ton of honey and sold all but 10 bottles thanks to her class, referrals and social media marketing. Harvesting and educating has been her full-time job for the last three years. For Delaney, its a way to save for college and improve her grades. Im always learning a new thing every time you go beekeeping: how they communicate, the swarm ing process, the queen and eggs hatching, Delaney said. Science and math have been improved by our work with the bees, it teaches us how to do quick math in our heads. And its not just hobby beekeepers who are helping to save the Honey bee, gardeners can play an important role as well. Any gardener planting native species and pollen-producing plants is helping the Honey bee to survive and thrive, whether in pastoral settings or urban landscapes, Nino said. Not all San Mateo County cities welcome bees: Foster City doesnt allow bees and the city of San Mateo in 2017 lifted its ban on bee keeping, but all other cities in the county are open to bees. Check your city for its specific bee ordinance. Honey bees are not aggressive unless their hive is threatened. They die upon stinging. Bumblebees, wasps and yellowjackets and hornets, however, can sting multiple times. For information about identifying the different species, visit the guilds website: sanmateobeeguild.org/ swarm_removal.html. On May 3, the Guild will welcome Cindy Burgdorf, a master gardener to talk about gardening for pollinators and Honey bees. The meeting is at 6:30 p.m. at Trinity Presbyterian Church, 1106 Alameda de las Pulgas in San Carlos. For more information about the guild, visit: sanmateobeeguild.org. Design industries are critical to Detroits future but need nurturingBy JOHN GALLAGHERDetroit Free PressDETROIT Back in 2002, urban guru Richard Florida published his influential book The Rise of the Creative Class, which highlighted the importance of so-called creatives artists, graphic designers, architects, and others to the vitality of cities trying to overcome long-term decline. Floridas book helped set the agenda for many a city, including Detroit, where the CEO group Business Leaders for Michigan launched the Detroit Creative Corridor Center in 2010. The DCCC was a small enterprise, based in the College of Creative Studies building in New Center, dedicated to attracting more design firms to the Woodward Avenue district. Lately, though, the vision has evolved and expanded thanks to a year-long study of what design means in a city like Detroit. The DCCC has adopted a new name Design Core Detroit and a new mission that goes well beyond attracting well-educated and well-paid millennials to the downtown and Midtown districts. Now, said Olga Stella, director of Detroit Core Design, we recognize that design means more than a few creative individuals and firms. Rather, its an entire eco-system that accounts for as much as 20 percent of metro Detroits total economy and includes a diverse population of people with all sorts of skills. That eco-system, she told me, includes not only the artists and product designers themselves but all the suppliers and downstream workers who turn designs into reality carpenters and builders who turn architectural designs into bricks and mortar, or assembly line workers who build the vehicles crafted in the design studios. And in a key finding of the year-long study, Stella said that 70 percent of all design firms in metro Detroit have fewer than 10 employees, and as many as half have just one or two workers. Design, it turns out, is a small-business phenomena, and we need to figure out how to nurture those firms and workers. Part of what we came to realize is that sustainable and equitable development in Detroit meant inclusive growth and we needed to talk about it that way, she said. A good example of what they may mean is the work underway along Detroits west riverfront. The Detroit Riverfront Conservancy recently selected Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates to design the 22-acre west riverfront park. The process recognized that design, at its best, is no longer a mystery open only to the elite, but an everyday way of life in a city like Detroit.Design Core Detroits just-completed report, titled Detroit City of Design Action Plan, outlines three broad strategies. First, focus on talent. Weve got to be constantly pushing forward on the talent agenda and making sure the talent pipeline is representative of the community and able to compete in the 21st Century, Stella said. That puts an emphasis on education and improving our schools. It also dovetails with Gov. Rick Snyders recent Marshall Plan for Talent that outlines ways to boost opportunities and career paths that may not require a four-year college degree. Second, invest in design firms. Keep in mind that so many design firms are those one-or-two-person shops that struggle with financial requirements. These are very small businesses, Stella said. Weve got to find ways to increase their capital access. And third, focus on policy. We need to create an environment that really demands inclusive design as a way of working, she said. The action plan grew out of the 2015 designation of Detroit as a UNESCO City of Design, a recognition from the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization on cities demonstrating a legacy of and commitment to using design as a tool of economic development. Detroit is the first and so far only U.S. city to receive the designation. Creativity, it turns out, works best when its by and for all of us.

Well announce it in next weeks edition. for shareholders to vote out underperforming or bad directors. Heres another right: If youre a shareholder of common stock and the company goes under, filing for bankruptcy, you have the right to a portion of its assets and income. Heres the bad news, though: Youll get that only after creditors, bondholders and holders of preferred stock are paid whats due to them. In many such situations, then, common stockholders end up with little or nothing. Shareholders can agitate for change, too. If they hold enough sway, they can submit proposals that get voted on. They can also try to ask management questions at annual meetings. That can be hard, though, if only a few questions are taken and answered. Still, if youre a shareholder of a company, aim to act like a part owner. Hold management responsible and ask for the changes youd like to see. When you receive your proxy and voting materials (typically every spring), cast your vote. Keep an eye on what the company is doing, too. If you want to see more environmentally friendly initiatives, or you dont like a proposal that will limit voting rights, let the company know.Learn Your AlphabetGoogle, child of parent company Alphabet (Nasdaq: GOOGL, Nasdaq: GOOG), controls more than 70 percent of the desktop search market worldwide, and more than 90 percent of mobile searches. (Its true Google it!) It boasts seven products with at least 1 billion monthly users each: Search, Gmail, Chrome, Maps, YouTube, Google Play and Android. Google entered the cloud-computing game late, but it has made impressive gains. On the companys most recent earnings conference call, CEO Sundar Pichai said that Google Cloud was already a billion-dollarper-quarter business, as well as the fastest-growing major public cloud provider in the world. Most of Alphabets revenue comes from online advertising, but its a pioneer in the artificial intelligence technique of deep learning, and its also home to a number of moonshots. Those include Waymo, the companys self-driving division thats set to launch a driverless ridehailing service later this year. Other potential growth drivers include the subsidiary Verily thats working on projects such as smart contact lenses that detect blood glucose levels, while subsidiary Calico aims to increase the human life span. With Alphabets unparalleled control of search and promising position in many other businesses, investors might want to buy and hold Alphabet for decades. (Suzanne Frey, an executive at Alphabet, is a member of The Motley Fools board of directors. The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Alphabet.) rffTwice BurnedI got burned on stock in Molycorp, a rare-earth materials company. That kind of thing happens. The dumb part was that I did it twice! I made a bad move, got out, berated myself for bailing out, then saw the stock price go way lower. So I bought again, watched it drop more, got out, and resisted the temptation to try it again I wont let a stock fool me three times. Unless its a large, stable company with a long, profitable track record, my mantra now is, Burn me once, youre done. R.L., Cincinnati The Fool Responds: Molycorp was once flying high, but then China increased the worlds supply of the rare elements used for products such as batteries, camera lenses, catalytic converters, hard drives and MRI machines. Prices dropped, and Molycorp ended up with years of massive losses, eventually filing for bankruptcy protection. It emerged as a new company later, but only after shareholders were wiped out. The lesson here is to not try to catch a falling knife. Low and lower prices can be appealing, but they tend to reflect a company in trouble. Unless you have strong reason to believe the company will ultimately recover and prosper, aim to make money elsewhere. Selling at a loss is better than selling at a greater loss later. Companies that file for bankruptcy protection will often end up burning their shareholders. Oops!QTheres an error in the federal tax return I filed. How can I correct it? C.R., Flint, MichiganAThe 1040 form you file isnt the only one you can file for each year. You can file an amended return with a 1040X form, and you can even amend an amended return later!Mistakes involving your filing status, income, deductions or credits will require an amended return. One way to reduce the need for an amended return is to use tax-prep software such as TaxACT or TurboTax. Such software can reduce errors, since it will do calculations for you and will help you be thorough, submitting all needed forms and schedules.***QAre stocks too risky for teenagers? T.L., Walnut Creek, CaliforniaANot at all! As long as theyre investing for the long term, young people stand to do the best investing in stocks.For example, if youre 15 and you invest $1,000 in the stock market each year and earn an average annual return of 8 percent, youll end up with almost $50,000 when youre 35 and about $280,000 by age 55. Of course, youll be able to invest more as you get older amassing more money that can help you buy a home or retire early. People in or near retirement have far less time in which their money can grow.Short-term money money needed within five or even 10 years, perhaps for college should be in safer places than stocks, such as money market accounts or CDs.

Send us an email to email@example.comKnow Your Shareholder RightsYou might think that a share of stock is a little like a lottery ticket that will either pay off for you or wont. Thats far from the case, though. Each share of common stock in a company represents an actual stake in the company itself. It makes the shareholder a partial owner of the company one who will share in the financial pain if the company fails and one who will share in the gains if the company grows more valuable and/or pays out dividend income. Shareholders have rights, too. For example, theyre typically allowed to vote on company matters, such as board-of-directors nominees, executive pay issues and sustainability reports. Shareholder votes have helped usher in some positive changes for companies, resulting in more outside directors on boards, fewer staggered board elections, and more companies requiring majority votes for various measures to be approved.

LIFE Lake City Reporterwww.lakecityreporter.comSunday, April 29, 2018Section D Story ideas? Contact Editor Robert Bridges754email@example.com Venturing off the beaten path in New OrleansIt was Scotts first trip to New Orleans. After his breakfast experience at Caf Du Monde and walking around the French Quarter, it quickly got to be approaching lunch time. We checked out our lunch dining options on the Diners, Drive Ins and Dives website and Scott decided on Mahonys. Friends suggested to us the day before, that we ride the St. Charles Streetcar to check out the Garden District and this restaurant happens to be in this area. We figured by the time we walked to pick up the streetcar and rode to the Garden District, itd be perfect timing. As we were walking to the corner of Canal Street to pick up the car, we caught the tail end of a parade, which had everything all backed up, including the street cars. The Garden District reminded us of old Charleston or Savannah, with the old homes and tree lined streets. Magazine Street, where Mahonys was located, reminded us a little of the Riverside area of Jacksonville. We got off the street car at Louisiana Avenue and walked the rest of the way (about 5 blocks). We got to the restaurant just in time, because as we waited for our food, the line was out the door. Mahonys is a Po-Boy shop. A po boy (also po-boy, po boy, or poor boy) is a traditional submarine sandwich from Louisiana. It almost always consists of meat or seafood, usually fried, served on baguettelike Louisiana French bread. I took this definition off Wikipedia when I Googled it, because I asked Scott why they call it a po boy, when its just a sub sandwich. And one of the theories is that TRAVEL TALES Sandy Kishton TRAVEL continued on 4DServing their country on the high seas By ROBERT ZAHNNavy Office of Community Outreach A Lake City native and 2015 Columbia High School graduate is serving in the U.S. Navy forward-deployed aboard the guided missile destroyer, USS Shiloh. Petty Officer 3rd Class Aaron Geisler is a fire controlman aboard the Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer operating out of Yokosuka, Japan. The ship routinely deploys to protect alliances, enhance partnerships, and be ready to respond if a natural disaster occurs in the region. A Navy fire controlman is responsible for operating and maintaining combat and weapons direction systems, surface-to-air and surface-to-surface missile systems and gun fire control systems. They also provide system employ ment recommendations and performing mainte nance on digital computer equipment systems. Geisler is proud to serve in the Pacific and fondly recalls memories of Lake City. I learned a lot from my scoutmaster. I admired his leadership ability which I strive to implement in in my own life, said Geisler. Hes the type of person you will actually sit down and listen to. Moments like that makes it worth serving around the world ready at all times to defend Americas interests. With more than 50 percent of the worlds shipping tonnage and a third of the worlds crude oil passing through the region, the United States has historic and enduring interests in this part of the world. The Navys presence in Yokosuka is part of that long-standing commitment, explained Navy officials. Its a cool opportunity to experience other cultures and to know that youre a part of an important organization, Geisler said. Geisler is also proud of the type of work he does on the ship. He knows that what he does is recognized and important to the mission. Destroyers are warships that provide multi-mission offensive and defensive capabilities. They are 510 feet long and armed with tomahawk land-attack cruise missiles, Standard Missile-3 and newer variants of the SM missile family, advanced gun systems and close-in gun systems. Destroyers are deployed globally and can operate independently or as part of carrier strike groups, surface action groups, or amphibious readiness groups. Their presence helps the Navy control the sea. Sea control is the precondition for everything else the Navy does. It cannot project power, secure the commons, deter aggression, or assure allies without the ability to control the seas when and where desired. USS Shiloh has anti-aircraft capability armed with long range missiles intended for air defense to counter the threat to friendly forces posed by manned aircraft, anti-ship, cruise and tactical ballistic missiles.2015 CHS grad Aaron Geisler is deployed on a guided missile destroyer in Japan 2009 SHS grad Robert Wigelsworth is a machinists mate on a destroyer in HawaiiBy ERICA GARDNERNavy Office of Community OutreachA Live Oak native and 2009 Suwannee High School graduate is serving in the U.S. Navy aboard the guided-missile destroyer, USS Hopper. Petty Officer 3rd Class Robert Wigelsworth is a machinist mate aboard the guided-missile destroyer operating out of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. A Navy machinist mate is responsible for maintaining and repairing air conditioning and provide general maintenance on the ship. I brought hard work with me to the Navy said Wigelsworth. Mor e than 300 sailors serve aboard the ship, and their jobs are highly specialized, requiring dedication and skill, according to Navy officials. The jobs range from maintaining engines to handling weaponry along with a multitude of other assignment that keep the ship mission-ready at all times. Fast, maneuverable, and technically advanced, destroyers provide credible combat power from the sea. Our sailors in Pearl Harbor are doing an excellent job at warfighting and supporting the warfighter, said Cmdr. Hurd, chief staff officer, Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam. Historically, Pearl Harbor is a symbolic base of sacrifice and resiliency. Today, on every Navy ship and shore facilitys flag pole, the First Navy Jack, Dont Tread on Me, flies reminding sailors to move forward and build on the history and legacy of this country and the U.S. Navy. Navy guided-missile destroyers are multi-mission ships that can operate independently or as part of a larger group of ships at sea, Navy officials explained. They are equipped with tomahawk missiles, torpedoes, guns and a phalanx close-in weapons system. Challenging living conditions build strong fellowship among the crew. The crew is motivated, and can quickly adapt to changing conditions. It is a busy life of specialized work, watches and drills. Serving aboard a guided missile destroyer instills accountability and toughness and fosters initiative and integrity. Ser ving in the Navy is a continuing tradition of military service for Wigelsworth, who has military ties with family members who have previously served. Wigelsworth is honored to carry on that family tradition. My grandfather was in the Army, said Wigelsworth. As a member of one of the U.S. Navys most relied-upon assets, Wigelsworth and other sailors know they are part of a legacy that will last beyond their lifetimes providing the Navy the nation needs. Ser ving my country and being able to play a small role for something bigger than myself is why I serve, Wigelsworth said.Hes the type of person you will actually sit down and listen to.As a member of one of the U.S. Navys most relied-upon assets, Wigelsworth and other sailors know they are part of a legacy that will last beyond their lifetimes providing the Navy the nation needs.I brought hard work with me to the Navy, says Wigelsworth. Its a cool opportunity to experience other cultures and to know that youre a part of an important organization, Geisler said. He is also proud of the type of work he does on the ship.

Avoid interference by searching for inner growth and personal stability. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Show others how you feel through your actions. Less talk will give you more time to live up to your promises and expectations. What you do without being asked will bring surprising and unexpected results. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Tidy up any unfinished personal business. Make sure your tax return is complete and that youve taken advantage of any and all deductions allowed. Youll come out on top if you are diligent about details when handling medical, financial or legal matters. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You can make changes that suit your needs. Look for alternative lifestyles; align yourself with people who share your sentiments. Move forward with optimism, and be willing to embrace what life has to offer. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Not everyone will be eager to pitch in and do what you want to do. Dont shy away from following through with your plans all by yourself. What you achieve will satisfy you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Use your imagination when dealing with relationships that are suffering from boredom. Spice up your life by trying something new and unique. Exploring new interests with someone you love or suggesting a family project will bring you closer together. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Emotional spending or indulgence of any kind will not ease stress. Put more thought into ways you can use the skills, experience and knowledge to bring in extra cash. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Emotions will swell up when dealing with relationship issues. Direct your energy into something that will please the people you care about most. The difference you make to an older family member will result in an unexpected reward. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A reserved attitude will serve you well when dealing with people who have seniority or more information than you. Listen to whats being said; it will motivate you to make a few adjustments to your plans. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Youll feel uncertain due to someones unpredictable nature. Dont feel you have to give in to keep the peace. Make your own plans if you dont like whats being offered or what you are being subjected to. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Youll be tempted to make an impulsive purchase or decision. Dont pull out your credit card unless you have the money in the bank to cover the expense. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Youll be given a choice. Dont be shy or feel guilty. Choose what you want and enjoy your good fortune. Put your needs first, and make a positive change that will bring you greater comfort and happiness. DEAR ABBY: My adult son passed away two years ago at a young age. We were very close while he was growing up. He married young, and I maintained a great relationship with both him and his wife. They gave me the most precious grandchildren any woman could ask for, and I am extremely active in their little lives. My daughter-in-law has moved on. She met a nice young man, and they are planning to be married in the near future. Do you think I would be out of line to request to have my sons ashes back home with me? We live near each other, I love her very much, and we still have a great relationship. I dont want to damage it by asking this if its not appropriate. I would pass his ashes on to his children when they grow up, of course, but for now, Id love to have my son back home with me and his dad because she has started her new life. My husband is noncommittal about the subject. When I broach it, he says he doesnt want to talk about it. I really have no one to ask or confide in about this. Your thoughts would be most appreciated. -STILL BROKENHEARTED IN NORTH CAROLINA DEAR STILL BROKENHEARTED: Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your clearly dearly beloved son. If you would like to have his ashes after his widow remarries, I doubt she would be offended if you asked what her plans are for them and if you could have them or split them with her. I can understand why you would want them, but Im not at all certain your grandchildren would welcome that responsibility when they become adults. Your husband may be reluctant to discuss this because he is still grieving and hurting, too. However, because you are, as you say, still brokenhearted, please consider grief counseling and joining a grief support group. DEAR ABBY: I have an elderly friend who complains nonstop when I phone her. She lives a three-hour drive from me and expects me to be the one to call. She doesnt carry long-distance on her home phone, and her sight is too poor to dial numbers, although shes able to see the TV. I feel sad for her, but I dread calling her because of her negative attitude about life in general. Its a shame to end a 40-year friendship, but I dont believe Im helping her or myself by listening to all her complaints. Should I write her and say I wish shed try to be more positive? She has health issues, but I know many people who try to be pleasant in spite of poor health. -FEELING BAD FOR HER, BUT ... DEAR FEELING BAD: If the alternative to telling your elderly friend how her constant negativity affects you would be to drop her entirely, convey to her what you have written to me. The woman appears to be very isolated and possibly depressed. If she has family, suggest they involve her in activities for seniors in the community. Contact with other seniors might give her spirits and her outlook a much-needed boost. As widow moves on, mom hopes to claim sons ashesDEAR ABBY Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

4D S UNDAY, APRIL 29, 2018 LIFE LAKE CITY REPORTER some out of work str eet car conductors back in the 1920s were served these sandwiches free during a strike and since they didnt have jobs, they were considered poor boys, thus the po boy for the poor boy. Now you know. I ordered a shrimp po boy and Scott got an oyster one. They were pretty good, but almost too much bread. We walked back down Magazine Street a little further and took in the sights. On the way back to St. Charles Street to pick up the car, we walked through Lafayette Cemetery. This is on the National Historic Register and is very old. The tombs are all mausoleum style and it reminded me of the movies Ive seen that were filmed here. Speaking of which, as we drove in on Friday, we passed an area underneath the interstate where they always have car chases in the movies. As I pointed that out to Scott, we saw a couple of Hollywood Film trailers lined up. In a city like New Orleans, you expect to find street performers, experience the cajun culture and food, watch tourists act a fool on Bourbon Street, but it is the local flair I like best. Especially, when you venture off the beaten path. Sandy Kishton is a freelance travel writer who lives in Lake City. TRAVELContinued From 1D FAMILY FEATURES Make your next fiesta one to remember with colorful decor, festive touches and, perhaps most importantly, unique and mouthwatering recipes that bring guests back for seconds. To achieve the ideal flavors of a fiesta done right, try bringing something new to the table with recipes like these party-pleasing Tortilla Pizzas for a special main dish, crunchy and refreshing Coleslaw with Green Chile Dressing on the side and, for a decadently unique dessert, Jalapeno Brownies. These party-perfect recipes can help you take flavors to new heights while adding a kick of spice when you incorporate quality ingredients like Rio Luna Organic Peppers. The peppers are cultivated by a company with more than three decades of experience. They manage the whole pepper process from annual seed selection to grower partnerships, cultivation and packing. Available in four spicy varieties Diced Jalapenos, Nacho Sliced Jalapenos, Diced Green Chiles and Large Chopped Green Chiles you can add a pop of peppers to your next celebration. Because the peppers are organic certified, non-GMO, fat free, cholesterol free, low calorie and kosher, youll be able to pack an extra punch of spice without serving up unnecessary ingredients. To find more ways to spice up your fiestas as well as everyday recipes, visit riolunapeppers.com/our-meals, and find Rio Luna Organics on Facebook and Instagram. When it comes to supplying fiesta foods that fit almost anyones taste, tacos are a go-to party favorite. That is because it can be fun for party-goers to customize their own tacos while making food prep easier and less hands-on for hosts who dont want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. However, trying to list all the possible tacotopping options can be an overwhelming task for many hosts. Along with your choice of taco filling, consider these toppings when building the perfect taco bar at your next fiesta: Shredded cheese Sour cream Beans (black, pinto or refried) Salsa Shredded lettuce Rice Rio Luna Organic Peppers Chopped tomatoes Chopped onions Diced avocado or guacamole Sliced black olives Corn Cilantro Lime wedgesTortilla PizzasPrep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 10 minutes Servings: 4 4 flour tortillas (8 inches) 1 can (15 ounces) refried black beans 4 fresh plum tomatoes, chopped 1 can (4 ounces) Rio Luna Organic Nacho Sliced Jalapenos, drained 1 1/3 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro chipotle-ranch dressing (optional) Heat oven to 400 F.
