By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comA 75-year-old Connecticut man was arrested Monday on suspicion of molesting an eight-yearold girl in Lake City, according to a Columbia County Sheriffs Office report. Waldo Alberto Hinjiosa of Danbury faces a felony charge of lewd and lascivious behavior on a victim under 12 after deputies say he inappropriately touched the girl and possibly licked her face in December. On Jan. 13, a Florida Department of Children and Families investigator told CCSO that the girl was molested Dec. 2 at a trailer in the Edgewater Mobile Home Park on Country Club Road, according to the report. A Child Protection Team scheduled a forensic interview for Jan. 23. A deputy completed the initial report and passed it to a detective for further investigation. The detective contacted the girls mother, who said Hinjiosa and his wife were visiting for the holidays and thinking about moving to the area. The mother said Hinjiosa had since returned to his home in Connecticut. On Jan. 29, the detective reviewed a copy of the forensic interview, the details of which are not public record. Deputies requested an arrest warrant based on the evidence. They requested nationwide extradition due to him residing in Connecticut. Hinjiosa is being held at Columbia County Detention Facility on a $150,000 bond.Lake City ReporterTUESDAY, M AY 1 2018 | Y OUR COMMUNIT Y NEWSPAPE R S INCE 1 874 | $1.00 LAKE CIT YRE PORTE R.COM CALL US: (386) 752-1293 SUBSCRIBE TO THE REPORTER: Voice: 755-5445 Fax: 752-9400 Vol. 143, No. 282 TODAYS WEATHER Opinion . . . . . . 4A Obituar ies . . . . . . 5A P uzzles . . . . . . . 2B Advic e & Comics . . 3B Perfect attendanceat Fort White Elementary, 2A.

County Manager Ben Scott now has until early May to pick Scott Wards replacement. I have enjoyed working with Scott over the past three years. His ability to evaluate issues and help provide possible solutions was an asset to Columbia County. I wish the best for him and his family, said Ben Scott. After three years in the position Ward turned in his two weeks notice to Scott last Thursday. In a letter dated April 26, Ward said he received an offer to be the chief financial officer of a school district about 130 miles south along Interstate 75 in Lake County, just outside Orlando. I realize this opportunity is too exciting for me to decline, said Ward in his resignation letter. He said his last day would be May 11. Ward maintained it was was a positive professional move alone. He said his new job was a better fit for his background. Its just a little better opportunity career wise, said Ward. Ive enjoyed working for Columbia County this is just something a little bit more along the lines for what my experience is. Im a certifed CPA.

United Way and the AFL-CIO are proud to be founding partners. Thanks to generous donors leaving food in or near their mailboxes since 1992, together weve collected 1.5 billion pounds of food. Postmasters Paul McGinnis, Lake City Post Office, and Pam Pettyjohn, Fort White Post Office, and NALC Member Jim Bowles are coordinating the event for the Lake City and Fort White post offices. Locally, United Way of Suwannee Valley coordinates the effort with the local post offices and agencies which receive the contributed food. At least six days a week, letter carriers see firsthand the needs of the communities they work in, NALC President Fredric Rolando said, and were privileged to be able to help those in need while leading an effort that brings out the best in so many Americans. People are encouraged to leave a sturdy bag containing non-perishable food such as canned soup, vegetables, meats and fish, pasta, rice or cereal next to their mail box before the regular delivery on Saturday, Postmaster Paul McGinnis said. These would include canned tuna or chicken as well as canned stews, boxed meals and peanut butter. Please do not include any glass or perishable items. The Lake City Post Office letter carriers and rural route carriers in Fort White and surrounding communities in Columbia County last year hauled in food totaling nearly 12,000 pounds from their customers residences to the loading docks of the post offices. The participating agencies include Christian Service Center, Another Way domestic violence center, Catholic Charities Bureau, Suwannee Valley Rescue Mission Lads Soup Kitchen and church food pantries in Fort White. United Way of Suwannee Valley is a community impact and fundraising organization which, utilizing volunteers on all levels, advances the common good by identifying unmet community needs and seeking to alleviate those needs through United Way of Suwannee Valley initiatives and the funding of 23 affiliated health and human service agencies.

As a veteran CFO he served as chief financial officer of Alachua County School District for 12 years prior to his stint as assistant county manager. I had close to 13 years as chief financial officer and assistant superintendent at Alachau County, Ward said. He was hired by Columbia County June 2015 at a crucial point in its restructuring. At that time current county manager, Ben Scott, was senior assistant county manager to Dale Williams. After Williams retirement the office was restructured under Scotts leadership with two associates taking up different sides of its duties. Ward was the administrative assistant while former public works director Kevin Kirby oversaw public works operations. Over his three years, Ward said he was proudest of his work with Columbia County Fire Rescue. I thought it was substantial working out a lot of issues with the fire dept that were there when we got there, Ward said. A Lake City native, he said his next career move would see his familys relocation to Lake County from his home. Ive enjoyed it, Ward said. The county manager said Wards position would be advertised immediately and listed with the Florida Association of Counties and Florida League of Cities. WARDContinued From 1A Kenneth Witt succumbs to long illnessBy CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comKenneth Witt, 84, the former county commissioner whose annual peanut boils became major social gatherings in Columbia County and beyond, died Sunday morning at Suwannee Valley Hospice Care Center in Lake City after a long battle with a lung disease. In a word, Witt was an anchor, said his grandsonin-law, Wesley Douglas. Thats really what Ill miss, Douglas said. The way he was able to keep the family united. Douglas remembers the lengthy discussions about local politics that punctuated his visits to Witts home. Granddaughter Hailey Douglas vouched for the fact that her grandfather enjoyed a good conversation. He could talk the ears off corn in the most charming way, she said. Community members who were pondering a run for office frequently consulted Witt before committing to a decision. They wanted to come speak with Kenneth, to get his support, Wesley Douglas said. Just about everyone knew Witt, either from his days working at the DMV, through his farm or through his tenure on the County Commission, Douglas said. He kept alive the his tory of old Lake City for the newer generations and shared his wisdom about how the community has been transformed over the years, Douglas said. Hes the bridge, Douglas said. Witt watched out for his family, and could be counted on to co-sign for a car or help pay for college tuition. He loved his family, Douglas said. He always did so much for them. Witt loved to take family members riding around the nursery in a UTV. He loved taking the grandkids riding in the cow pasture, Douglas said. Wesley and Hailey Douglas spoke to other members of the family on the Lake City Reporters behalf and compiled their accounts of favorite memories and time spent with Kenneth Witt. Louise Witt first met Kenneth Witt at Tabernacle Church in Ellisville. They started dating in September and were married in January. Their 65th anniversary was this year. We had 65 good years, she said. Its going to be mighty lonely without him. Daughter Valerie Ryals said shell miss talking to her father. Family time was a priority, she said. Daughter Martha Kay knew better than to try and rush him whenever they went on an outing together. You dont get in a hurry when you go somewhere with Kenneth, she said. Because he would stop and talk. Larry Witt, Kenneth Witts oldest son, remembers getting his ass tore up. Specifically, he recalls skipping school one day to drive around in his truck. Somehow, his father knew everywhere he went and whom he was with. But his father was also a reliable source of advice, Larry Witt said. I will most miss his wisdom, he said. I used to run everything by him. I would always tell him what I was going to do and he would tell me how he would do it and he would go from there. Son Gary Witt remembers his father as a hard worker and an honest person who would help anybody. Granddaughter Shelby Stinson said when she was young, Kenneth Witt would tell her she needed to eat her carrots if she wanted eyes like Reba McIntire. Grandson Jeffrey Norris has more memories of Witt than he can count. But theres a few that are special to me, he said. Norris remembers working with Witt in the nursery. He would make you work hard, but I wish he was here now working with me, he said. During a childhood Christmas Eve, Witt drove Norris around the neighbor hood on a mission to find Santa. If he had to pick the memory that stands out the most, Norris said hell always cherish going to Tiger football games. That was the highlight of my week, he said. Granddaughter Ashley Blanton remembers Witt fishing with her son, Travis Ryals, at Witts pond. Ryals said he would live at that pond if shed let him, Blanton said. Grandson Dylan Witt remembers riding with his grandmother and grandfather to Jacksonville to deliver plants. Theyd almost always stop at the beach. Witt taught him how to plant rye and millet for the cows and gave him his first truck when he turned 16. Then there were the times he went fishing with his father and grandfather. We just had the best times together, Dylan Witt said. Im going to miss going places with him, and how he would find someone to talk to for hours. And how he always wanted me to carry on the Witt name, and before he passed away he always told me how I was like a son to him and how proud he was of me. Im going to miss him a lot, he added. Granddaughter Regina Witt also said her favorite memory with her grandfather was riding with him Jacksonville every day to deliver plants. Granddaughter Leslie McGriff said her favorite memory with her grandfather is getting up the cows every Sunday and taking them to the market. In 1982, Kenneth Witt, then a state trooper, ran for a seat on the County Commission. He won and began his first term before winning a second and a third. After retiring from county government in 1992, he opened G&K Nursery with Gary Witt. Kenneth Witt had hosted a peanut boil at his house every year since the 60s, drawing in hundreds of friends, family and community members at each event. Judges, political powerhouses and business leaders were known to attend his gatherings. In July 2017, he passed on the torch to Douglas, who organized that years peanut boil. The previous October, a doctor told Witt his degenerative lung disease would likely claim his life within six months. But he held out for another year.

By DALE KASLER and ANITA CHABRIAThe Sacramento BeeSACRAMENTO, Calif. Millions of Americans are doing it packing up samples of their saliva and mailing it off to an online genealogy company to analyze their DNA and help trace their family tree. Without knowing it, they may be helping law enforcement crack difficult cases. A partial DNA match with an unidentified relative of Joseph James DeAngelo on a genealogy website led to DeAngelos arrest as the suspect in the notorious East Area Rapist case, the Sacramento County District Attorneys Office said Thursday. Investigators recently found a familial DNA match to a sample collected years ago at a crime scene linked to the East Area Rapist. The family link then led the Sheriffs Department to DeAngelos home on a quiet middle-class street in Citrus Heights, where they obtained a direct DNA sample from him after following him and picking up an unidentified object he discarded, according to Sheriff Scott Jones. When that sample came back as a hit for a series of crimes, DeAngelo was arrested. Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert declined to detail how her office obtained the relatives DNA profile or accessed a genealogy database, raising questions about the privacy of personal genetic information on websites. I havent come across this before, said John Roman, a senior fellow at research organization NORC at the University of Chicago. Roman is a forensics expert and studied the use of DNA in criminal investigation in 2005-09 in Orange County and L.A. If thats how the match was obtained, then I would think there would be court battles to come. Colleen Fitzpatrick and Margaret Press, who run a nonprofit organization called the DNA Doe Project, said one of DeAngelos relatives may have shared DNA results with one of several public DNA matching websites, where people upload genetic data in search of biological parents or other long-lost relatives after obtaining results from a commercial site. The Sheriffs Department then could have gone to one of those sites, loaded DNA information from East Area Rapist crime scenes and found partial matches. Its like working a puzzle, Press said. Its painstaking. Typically, genetic database searches by law enforcement are limited to those arrested or convicted of crimes. California became the first state to authorize such familial line testing in 2008, but it has strict limits. Searches can be requested only when law enforcement has a suspect, and the DNA is only tested against databases containing samples from people arrested or convicted of felonies. The FBI maintains that system, but each state manages its own DNA database. In California, its maintained by the California Bureau of Investigation. The California Attorney Generals Office on Thursday said it had run 192 familial searches since 2007 in 108 cases. California voters expanded whom it collects DNA samples from in a 2004 ballot measure approved by 62 percent of voters. Proposition 69, called the DNA Fingerprint, Unsolved Crime and Innocence Protection Act, allowed law enforcement to collect DNA from any person arrested for a felony or arrested for a misdemeanor but having a felony record. The person doesnt have to be charged or convicted for the sample to be taken. The law sparked legal challenges and consternation from privacy advocates who feared it went too far especially since those ultimately not convicted of crimes are not automatically removed. The California Supreme Court in April upheld the law. Familial testing has successfully led to arrests in 10 cases in California, including the so-called Grim Sleeper in Los Angeles. In May 2016, the Sleeper, Lonnie Franklin Jr., was convicted of 10 counts of first-degree murder for decades-old crimes in Southern California. A familial DNA match led to the arrest of Sacramentos Roaming Rapist, Derek Sanders. He attacked women and two teenage girls between 1998 to 2003. Investigators eventually homed in on him after getting a partial DNA match with his brother a convicted rapist with DNA in the system. Sacramento County sheriffs deputies followed him to a fast-food restaurant and collected his garbage to obtain a DNA sample from a straw he had used. That sample matched DNA from the crime scene. Sanders was sentenced to 396 years to life in 2014. The California Attorney Generals Office said Thursday it had run available DNA in the East Area Rapist cases through familial searches of its databases, but never had a hit. Mehul Anjaria, a DNA criminology consultant in Los Angeles, said using familial DNA has its limits. Only the closest of relatives are helpful, he said. Certainly parents and biological siblings, those are good. Beyond that, it gets trickier and trickier. But it can also be fruitful. A 10 percent match indicates two people are cousins. A 50 percent match signifies theyre either siblings or have a parent-child relationship, Fitzpatrick said. Anjaria said the use of private genealogy customers genetic materials could raise privacy and civil liberty problems. Someone mailing a saliva swab probably expects the genetic results will be kept private, he said. The major genealogy companies say they dont freely share customers DNA information with law enforcement, but they may comply with subpoenas and court orders to turn over the materials. Others promise to fight for customers privacy. Those policies are spelled out on the companies websites. Its our policy to resist any law enforcement inquiries with all legal and practical means at our disposal, said Andy Kill, spokesman for 23andMe.com. We have had a handful of inquiries over the years, and have never given customer information to law enforcement officials. Ancestry.com, 23andMe and MyHeritage said they had no involvement in the DeAngelo case. The DAs Office hasnt said which companies were connected to the investigation, other than to say there was more than one.

But thats not the case this time. The leaders of the local pickleball club arent coming to ask for money, theyre coming to hand some over. Chip and Donna Lynch, who have led the pickleball charge here in recent years, will present commissioners with a check for $5,000 to help cover costs of resurfacing the courts at Richardson Community Center. The county had already committed to the project, but complications have pushed costs about $70,000 over budget. So this conscientious couple stepped up to help. Its nice to see and a refreshing change. Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY On this date: In 1707, the Kingdom of Great Britain was created as a treaty merging England and Scotland took effect.

T UESDAY, M AY 1, 2018 PARADE OF HOMES LAKE CITY R E PORTER 6A Parade of Homes: back in a big way The Machniks had purchased the house and knew shortly after the 2018 Parade of Homes was over, they would be moving in. Pat Machnik said she and her husband decided to purchase the home about a month ago. We watched the house being built and I saw the quality that was going into the home, she said. I could just tell the quality about the way the guys cared about the stuff that was in here. They were very particular about their work environment. Adam Papka built this home and he did an excellent job. Machnik said she was proud to have the home she and her husband purchased be a part of the 2018 Parade of Homes. I was impressed, she said. Its the first time Ive ever had a home that I was going to live in be in a Parade of Homes. When they asked, I thought it was a good idea. The 2018 Parade of Homes was rejuvenated by the Columbia County Builders Association, the Lake City Reporter and Currents magazine. Bryan Zecher, Columbia County Builders Association president, said the 2018 Parade of Homes was a success and the event attracted a lot interest and people. I thought it was fantastic, he said. The attendance exceeded our expectations. Zecher also said he was surprised by how many people showed more than just a passing interest in the homes on the tour, but were PARADEContinued From 1A HOMES continued on 7A TM First Federal is your trusted lender for all your home lending needs.Whether building, buying, remodeling, or refinancing, rely on us for all your lending needs.

T UESDAY, M AY 1, 2018 PARADE OF HOMES LAKE CITY R E PORTER 7A Parade of Homes: back in a big way interested in purchasing and building homes. A lot times at the Parade of Homes, you have a lot of lookers, but the amount of people that seemingly were interested in building also exceeded my expectations, he said. Zecher credited the Lake City Reporter, which utilized multiple media sources, in attracting a record number of visitors for the 2018 Parade of Homes. I think people really embraced this event, came out and had a good time touring all these 19 new homes, said Todd Wilson, publisher of the Lake City Reporter. There were several homes sold during the weekend, several contracts written on new construction and potentially a lot of groundwork laid for future business. We are proud to partner with the Columbia County Builders Association to help market this event and get the word out. People read about it in the Lake City Reporter and they responded. Our local economy is strong and building is back and that is good for every sector of the Lake City economy. It was a great weekend in Columbia County. An event designed to show 19 newly-constructed houses during free tours, the event attracted thousands of people who were interested in seeing new home floor designs, modern appliances and the latest trend in homes in the area. While the 2018 Parade of Homes was designed to let people see the homes being constructed in the county, several people liked what they saw so much, they wanted to buy them. Aaron Simque was showing a home in The Preserve on Southwest Rosemary Drive and said at least four people made offers on the home. Several other people showing homes during the 2018 Parade of Homes also said attendees offered to purchase the home they were showing. Brittany Dunn, GSMS Developers office manager, said several people who toured their homes in The Reserve at Jewel Lake wanted to buy homes on the spot. Weve had quite a few people come in looking at all the floor plans we offer, she said. Weve even had some people that actually live in the area and theyre looking to downsize. They like the idea we have a gated community that offers them security as well as close proximity to town. While the 2018 Parade of Homes event was designed to give people an opportunity to look at modern homes and see some of the building design changes for today, Dunn said she was surprised by how many attendees were looking to buy right then. It wasnt that they just wanted us to lead them along, they had questions and they were wanting to engage us, she said. We even had some couples come in that have lots in other subdivisions that are looking for builders to go in and build. Theyve had those lots since 2003 and they see now that the market is moving and theyre getting ready to create an investment. Robb Burns, First Federal Bank of Florida residential mortgage lender, said the 2018 Parade of Homes event went incredibly well. He said a lot of people came out and toured the homes and one of the unexpected benefits was that some people wanted to purchase. My understanding is a couple of homes have sold, which is great news, he said. I dont necessarily know if thats the goal every time that we sell a home during the Parade of Homes. Its designed to create some interest, but to actually get sales, thats even more of a positive. Were excited about that and very thankful.

has a major weakness, Murphy said. A similar forum held about 10 years ago at Richardson Community Center didnt help the county make any progress on that front, said Commissioner Ron Williams. Were still in the same rut that we was 10 years ago, Williams said. You cannot have growth without utilities. The county and city cannot continue to tell businesses looking to relocate to the area that they will look for a grant, he said, adding that the infrastructure needs to already be in place. And were struggling with utilities right now, he said. Commissioner Bucky Nash said the city and county need to have a reserve fund for utilities and proposed the two governments form a joint committee to address the issue. But poor relations between the two is a problem, Nash said, especially when the county has to go to the city or look for a grant to ensure there is adequate infrastructure to accommodate a prospective business partner. Theres so much red tape to get through, he said. The panel included all members of the County Commission and City Council except for George Ward, Superintendent Lex Carswell, Florida Gateway College President Lawrence Barrett, Jordan Green of the Florida Department of Transportation, Greg Galpin of Weyerhauser, local real estate professional Missy Zecher, businessman John ONeal and hotelier Nick Patel. Members identified other obstacles to economic, such as the fierce competition to the south and north, the lack of housing and the need to develop a better workforce. Patel said Columbia County and Lake City lack the funds to offer multi-million-dollar incentive packages to companies and need to start building up an economic development fund. Every year you must put money on the side like a good business person, Patel said. Williams agreed that Columbia County needs to fill its economic development coffers like Georgia and Marion County, which have taxes specifically for that purpose. Its those dead presidents that make them come in, he said. They got an M16 and we got a BB gun. Columbia County should also not discount mini mum-wage jobs, he said. A minimum-wage job is better than no job, he said. So we cant ask for the pie in the sky on everything. The housing shortage and lack of skilled workers form something of a chicken-and-egg scenario, Galpin said. Workers from elsewhere cant move here without housing, but housing wont be constructed without buyers. Zecher said the current inventory of resale homes will last about four months. Carswell said the challenge he faces is ensuring students are prepared to meet the needs of employers in the future, not the present. The current kindergarten class will graduate high school in 2030, he said, and companies will need different skills from workers. We have got to stop thinking about this thing in the past, he said. We got to start thinking about it in the future. Barrett said the colleges programs cannot produce enough workers to meet the needs of large employers. We cant scale it up that much, he said. After the panel reviewed various economic development projects in progress, including the North Florida Mega Industrial Park and the development of Bell Road and Ellisville, Murphy said he wants the summit to become a quarterly occurrence. Were fixing to put a plan together, he said. 8A T UESDAY, M AY 1, 2018 LOCAL LAKE CITY R E PORTER THE SOUTHS COUNTRY MUSIC & CAMPING FESTIVAL SUWANNEERIVERJAM.COM BROUGHT TO YOU BY:MAY 2-5TH, 2018LIVE OAK, FLSPIRIT OF THE SUWANNEE MUSIC PARK & CAMPGROUND | 3076 95TH DRIVE LIVE OAK, FL 386.364.1683 S&S FOOD STORES & BUDWEISER PRESENT r fn t tt t b rt THE SOUTHS COUNTRY MUSIC & CAMPING FESTIVAL SUWANNEERIVERJAM.COM BROUGHT TO YOU BY:MAY 2-5TH, 2018LIVE OAK, FLSPIRIT OF THE SUWANNEE MUSIC PARK & CAMPGROUND | 3076 95TH DRIVE LIVE OAK, FL 386.364.1683 S&S FOOD STORES & BUDWEISER PRESENT r fn t tt t b rt LEO memorial service set for tonightBy COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comLess than two weeks after the shooting deaths of two deputies in neighboring Gilchrist County, generations of local officers spanning the realm of public safety will be remembered at an evening service set to precede National Police Week. 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. tonight. 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. Tonight, 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.

Columbias Yassin Raffay, Asherah Collins and the boys 4x100 relay team (Tracy White, Lorinza Jelks, James Williamson, Jamel Jackson) are set to take their marks against the states best as they look to capture the schools first title since 1967. Raffay finished third place (9:43.63) in the boys 3200m run in last weeks Region 1 meet in Tallahassee. He says cant wait to face the competition in the finals Friday. This is it, said Raffay, the schools first state qualifier since 2002. This is what Ive waiting forI thank God for the opportunity. Its an honor to run for Columbia. I am very proud and thank my coaches for everything. I wouldnt be where I am now without them. Raffay, who also is a cross country star, continues to work on his speed ahead of the big race. Hes confident in his endurance ability but wants to polish his burst. While Raffay has focused on his breathing and pacing this week, Collins has put in work trying to perfect her triple jump, the event shes slated to compete in Saturday.

Yonge second baseman Ethan Brunson slides back to base safely ahead of Fort White first baseman Cody Morgans tag Monday night. By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comKEYSTONE HEIGHTS Both righties battled to the finish, commanding the mound in a tight pitchers duel that left fans on the edge of their seats. Fort Whites Tyler Shelnut and P.K. Yonges Anthony Whelan surrendered only two hits each in the District 5-5A quarterfinal matchup. A handful of defensive errors though overshadowed Shelnuts stellar eight-strikeout performance Monday night. Fort White gave up two unearned runs on two errors in the second inning. The tribe trimmed the deficit in the third but Whelan held off the Indians. P.K. Yonges senior ace anchored the Blue Wave to a 2-1 victory over the Indians at Joel Bryan Field. They had two hits, we had two hits, Fort White coach Rick Julius said after the elimination game. We had five errors, they had zero. Thats the ballgame. Shelnut may have outdueled his counterpart, but the Indians fielding woes proved critical as the Blue Wave needed just two runs to send the tribe packing. Whelan registered just two strikeouts yet did enough to pick up the complete-game win. Both pitchers threw strikes, but we didnt do a very good job of making adjustments at the plate, Julius said. (Whelan) kid threw strikes and they made plays. In high school baseball, if you throw strikes and play defense, youre going to win nine times out of ten. After splitting the regular season series, both teams were knotted in a scoreless game, until Danny Dawson reached home on a passed ball in the second. P.K Yonge (19-8) added another run in the same frame when Whelan scored on a dropped fly-ball to deep center, leaving Fort White (1311) trailing by two runs. The Indians best inning came in the third when Caleb May and Shelnut recorded the teams two Bevy of errors doom Indians in district quarterfinal match NFL ERIC JACKSON/Lake City Reporter McCollum inks letter of intent Marshall signs with DenverBy ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comAfter going undrafted this past weekend, Florida State defensive back Trey Marshall signed an undrafted free agent contract with the Denver Broncos. The Lake City native was a proven leader on Florida States defense for four years, playing as early as his freshman season. Marshall joins other Seminoles like Matthew Thomas, Jacob Pugh and Tarvarus McFadden who also signed similar free agent deals following the draft. Marshall could provide some more depth in the secondary for Denvers defense. The former Columbia star, who led the Tigers to a regional semifinals, started seven games and appeared in nine this past season. Marshall finished his college career with 135 total tackles. The standout safety was a consensus four-star recruit out of Columbia in 2014. He signed to Florida State over Miami, Georgia, Ole Miss and many other schools. Marshall is expected to join the team when rookie mini camp stars on May 11.

The Jaguars selected Mississippi State punter Logan Cooke in the seventh round of the NFL draft and chose LSU receiver DJ Chark in the second, making Nortman and Strong expendable. On Monday, Jacksonville signed North Carolina State offensive lineman Tony Adams, Miami cornerback Dee Delaney, Vanderbilt cornerback Tre Herndon, UNLV defensive tackle Michael Hughes, North Carolina Central linebacker Reggie Hunter, Jacksonville State line backer Darius Jackson, Cincinnati defensive end Lyndon Johnson and Iowa State receiver Allen Lazard. Other undrafted rookies signed: Miami offensive tackle KC McDermott, Stanford cornerback Quenton Meeks, Carson-Newman receiver Dorren Miller, Virginia Tech linebacker Andrew Motuapuaka and Marshall safety C.J. Reavis. Awesome! Brazilian surfs record 80-foot wave in Portugal SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) A Brazilian surfer rode a monster wave off Portugal to set a world record. The World Surf League says its judges determined that a wave Rodrigo Koxa surfed at Nazare, Portugal, on Nov. 8 reached a height of 80 feet (24.38 meters). The previous mark was by American Garrett McNamara in 2011 78 feet (23.77 meters). Koxa calls the award as a dream come true. The league announced the record Saturday at its Big Wave Awards in Santa Monica, California. The group says it awards the surfer who by any means available catches the biggest wave of the year. Nazare is on Portugals Atlantic coast between Lisbon and Porto. Joey Logano snaps long losing streak with win at Talladega TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) Joey Logano had a clear race track in his windshield and a pack of fellow Ford drivers on his bumper. That combination helped the Team Penske driver snap a nearly year long losing streak. Logano won Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway to snap a streak that dated to April 30 of last year. That win at Richmond was later disqualified because his car failed inspection, so the benefits from the victory were stripped and it cost him a spot in the playoffs. Out front at Talladega, which is usually the worst place to be in the closing laps, Logano couldnt be caught. His Ford teammates were committed to getting a Ford the win, and they waited patient ly in line until the closing laps to make their attempt at snatching the victory away from Logano. Only Kurt Busch was bold enough to make an early move, and he wrongly thought defending race winner Ricky Stenhouse Jr. would go with him.

R Shameless Homeland Paean to the People Billions The Third Ortolan The Circus: InsideAVN Awards All eyes will be on Patrick in her IndyCar returnNASCARBy JENNA FRYERAssociated PressSebastien Bourdais was back at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Monday. So was Helio Castroneves, who returned to his home away from home to re-acclimate to an Indy car. But the show really begins on Tuesday when Danica Patricks farewell tour returns to her biggest stage. The worlds most famous female race car driver returns to IndyCar for the first time since 2011 to prepare for her final drive around Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the in advance of the Indianapolis 500. Her preparations will help kick off IndyCars beloved Month of May and Patrick is sure to own the headlines. I imagine Ill probably pop up into the seat fully kitted up once before I get in, just to make sure everything is good, and go over things like, How the hell do I start this thing? Patrick said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. And by that, Patrick literally meant how she starts the car and begins her final drive. Shes been chasing her dreams since she was a little girl in Illinois, and two decades later, shes ready to call it a career. Her farewell began with NASCARs season-opening Daytona 500, where Patrick was collected in a crash and finished 35th. But the Danica Double was always about bringing her career full circle and walking away at Indy, the place that made her a household name. Patrick led 19 laps and finished fourth as a rookie in 2005 and she was a career-best third in 2009. Shes always thrived on Indys main stage, and she doesnt anticipate that changing this year. Patrick, who spent last week at boyfriend Aaron Rodgers Green Bay, Wisconsin, home watching the snow melt, was already shifting into race mode and talked confidently about her next hurdle. Yes, its been more than six years since shes been in an Indy car and it has had two body modifications during her absence. Shes approaching Tuesday much like she did her very first Indy test, in 2004. When I first drove an Indy car back in the day at Kentucky when no one was watching, now they are going to be watching, she said. Ive got a feeling that if its comfortable, it could come back to me really quick. I have to remember the very first time I ever drove an Indy car, having never driven one before, it went fine. So Ive got to trust that everything will be fine. Like it or not, Patrick has earned her spot on the central stage for the final month of her racing career. With Patrick back at Indy for the May 27 race, everything she does in her GoDaddy-sponsored Chevrolet will be scrutinized. Even Monday, the first day the track opened for testing, had a buzz about Patricks presence and she wasnt even on the track. Instead, it was Bourdais back on the big oval for the first time since he broke his hip and pelvis when he wrecked qualifying his car for last years 500. The injury was supposed to sideline him all year, but he was back in the IndyCar Series before the end of 2017 and already has a win and a pole on his resume this season. Castroneves, the threetime Indy 500 winner, also got his first laps around Indy in the 2018 configuration of the car. Because he was moved by Roger Penske to the sports car series this year, the Brazilian will only run this month at Indy and try to grab a record-tying fourth victory. Tony Kanaan, in an A.J. Foyt Racing car, was fastest on the day at 226.181 mph, and Marco Andretti wasnt too shabby at third on the speed chart. IndyCar closed the afternoon with a brief test session of a windscreen it is developing to protect drivers heads in the open cockpit cars. Defending series champion Josef Newgarden spent about 45 minutes behind the windscreen at the end of the day and seemed to struggle a bit with glare bouncing off the screen and vision. Next comes Patricks return on Tuesday, which was originally scheduled for late March but was postponed because of a cold and rainy weather. Shes used to attention, she thrives under pressure, and shes ready for the cameras when she gets back into the car. There are 35 entries for this years race, which means two drivers wont qualify for the 500. Patrick will be in a Chevrolet fielded by Ed Carpenter Racing, a team that is traditionally strong at Indy, and hasnt thought at all about potentially missing her retirement race.COURTESYDanica Patrick (above) is set to return to the Indy 500. Patricks Chevy-powered Indycar (below) will be green like Spencer Pigots seen here testing in Phoenix, but itll be GoDaddy green. B2
LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS TUESDAY, MAY 1, 2018 3B DEAR ABBY: A few weeks ago, I was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. Im only 34. Thats what I keep repeating to myself -Im only 34. I feel lost. Im mad at God and have lost my faith. I keep wondering Why me? Why my family AGAIN? Why stage 4? I cry alone in an empty house because I dont want to stress out my kids and my husband. The support groups are 30 minutes away and feature mostly breast cancer patients and survivors. Im a nurse, and I feel out of control. All my decisions are being made when Im unconscious or barely out of anesthesia. My world has been turned upside down. Im not hanging on well at all. Because my control is slipping, I have lost my grasp on the person I once was. I was a strong woman. I dont know what to do. Help! -NURSE WHO IS NOW THE PATIENT DEAR NURSE: Right now you are feeling vulnerable, which, under the circumstances, is normal. You should not be crying alone or isolating yourself as you have been doing. You need more emotional support than the support group you belong to can give. It may help you to contact the American Cancer Society because it provides support and information 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to those facing cancer. Trained cancer specialists are available via phone or live chat and can offer you not only accurate, up-todate information, but also connect you with valuable services and resources. The phone number to call is (800) 227-2345, and the website is cancer.org. Please dont wait to reach out. My thoughts are with you. DEAR ABBY: My in-laws take frequent vacations and ask my husband to dog-sit. He always says yes. They are gone seven to 10 days at a time and I dont think we should feel obligated to always agree. My husband says that since were family its our duty. Abby, they can well afford to kennel their dogs, and I dont think theyd be offended if we said no. But my husband thinks Im heartless for being OK with his parents dogs staying at a kennel for so long. I maintain that its not my problem. This disagreement comes up every two to three months (every time we have the dogs). I am not willing to do this anymore. Im not sure how to discuss this topic because, so far, nothing I have said has gotten me results. We already have dogs of our own, and kids as well, and the additional dogs disrupt our routine. -FREE PET SITTER DEAR SITTER: For your in-laws to expect you to take care of their dogs every time they decide to leave town seems excessive. However, I can understand why they would prefer not to kennel the dogs if they can leave them in a home environment instead. Because it bothers you, rather than try to dissuade your husband from being so agreeable, tell him he can dog-sit at his parents house, or from the moment the dogs arrive they will be his sole responsibility. And then stick to it. Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com Nurse knocked into emotional tailspin by cancer diagnosis 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): Think before you jump into something that may end up limiting you down the road. Listen to good advice, and consider what influence your decisions will have on friends and family. Don't make choices due to anger or frustration. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): How you treat others will dictate the response you receive when you want something. An open and honest approach to what you are trying to accomplish will help bring people on board, making your objective easier to obtain. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A problem with a group you are involved with will sprout due to evasive information or misinterpretation. Your charm will help you draw people to your side, but if you cannot deliver what you promise, the support you gain will quickly disperse. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Taking a different approach to your job or how you handle others will improve your popularity. Getting along with others and being willing to compromise and adjust to the way the world is changing around you will alleviate stress and frustration. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You'll have an interesting encounter or conversation, but don't be misled by empty promises. Be prepared to go it alone, and if anyone pitches in to help, it will be a bonus. Own what you do and take credit for your accomplishments. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): An emotional problem will surface if you oppose a personal or professional partner. Listen carefully; take care of any unfinished business that might slow the progress you are trying to make. Positive change will require effort and time. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Take care of yourself emotionally, physically and financially. Your relationship with others must be based on equality, not giving in to accommodate others. Keeping the peace can be accomplished, and everyone can maintain equality while doing so. Speak up about what you want to see happen. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Physical changes that you have wanted to make will occupy your mind. Don't fall for hype regarding a procedure or investment that can do the impossible. Doing proper research will be essential. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Share your feelings with someone you love. The plans you make will bring about positive changes at home. Altering your living space to accommodate a new addition will bring you joy as long as you don't overspend. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You'll be given options, and with proper care and consideration, you will find the best route to take in order to satisfy your needs as well as the needs of others. Home improvements and stronger relationships will lead to good fortune. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You'll be eager to bring about change and to improve your chance to get ahead professionally or financially. Question anyone offering too much or trying to persuade you to take a risk. Invest in yourself, not someone else. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don't be tempted by someone using flirtatious means to convince you to get involved in something that isn't to your benefit. Look for an opportunity to use what you have to offer; you will get ahead financially. May 1: Singer Judy Collins is 79. Singer Rita Coolidge is 73.

Everything else is on the table. The Miami Heat president said Monday in his annual end-of-season assessment that no player on the teams roster will be considered untouchable this offseason if the right deal presents itself, that is but quickly added the caveat that the franchise is not looking for a total revamp after going 44-38 in the regular season and making the playoffs. Show me the right name, and I could be all-in on everything, Riley said. You know me. But its got to be the right name ... that doesnt happen very often. Our core guys, we would like to keep together, theres no doubt. We would like to keep them together and wed like to add something to it, but thats going to be a challenge. He also was clear on his own future: The 73-year-old Riley, who has spent a half-century in the NBA as a player, coach and executive, isnt going anywhere until managing general partner Micky Arison tells him its time to vacate the presidents office. In other words, the Hall of Famers competitive fires are still burning. Theres always something that brings you back in, Riley said. Theres something that sucks you back in. ... Im an active participant, and Im going to stay that way to the chagrin probably of some of you and probably people in the organization. Riley held exit meetings with players Friday, three days after the Heats season ended in a five-game first-round ouster at the hands of the Philadelphia 76ers. He said he hasnt yet broached the topic of retirement with Dwyane Wade, for fear of planting that seed. He reiterated that the team wants to try to keep Wayne Ellington, even with the Heat somewhat handcuffed right now by salary-cap and luxury-tax challenges. Miami has $111 million already committed to the as-ofnow seven highest-paid players on its books for next season. And in the case of Hassan Whiteside, the enigmatic Heat center who was a nonfactor in the playoffs and complained about how he was being utilized by coach Erik Spoelstra, Riley made it clear that he wasnt happy with the entirety of the situation. Whiteside dealt with injuries during the season and didnt want to wear a knee brace that the Heat insisted upon, and Riley said that if Whiteside and Spoelstra need an intervention to solve their relationship issues if any hell handle it. Riley also didnt mince words, saying Whiteside needs to make changes. By the time we got to the playoffs I dont think he was ready, Riley said. He wasnt ready. He wasnt in great shape. He wasnt fully conditioned for a playoff battle mentally. He, and we, got our head handed to us. The disconnect between he and Spo, thats going to take a discussion between them and its going to take thought on the part of coach and also Hassan. How will Hassan transform his thinking, 99 percent of it to get the kind of improvement that Spo wants so he can be effective? How can Spo transform his thinking when it comes to offense and defense and minutes or whatever? That word transform was a theme of sorts for Rileys meeting with reporters. He started with a 15-minute monologue on how change has been a constant throughout his 23 seasons with the Heat, how the team landed transformative superstars like Alonzo Mourning and Shaquille ONeal in trades and Wade through the draft and LeBron James and Chris Bosh in summertime deals. Come July 1, the Heat will be active on those fronts again noting that the fan base is clamoring for more. Well, well give them more, Riley said. Well try to give them more. Thats what Ive been doing since Ive been here. Thats what Micky has been doing, trying to give you more if we can. But were not going to do anything that isnt smart. We will never do anything thats really going to hurt the franchise. NOTES: Before Riley spoke, the Heat said guard Tyler Johnson had surgery on the ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb. Johnson was hurt in the opening seconds of Game 3 of the series against Philadelphia but finished the series. He will be in a cast for six weeks. The Heat expect him to be ready to begin camp in September.NBACOURTESYPat Riley, President of the Miami Heat NBA basketball team, talks with the media at a season-end press conference at the American Airlines Arena on Monday. Riley will think big if chance presents itself to Miami Heat Williams says Redskins had inside information on GuiceNFLBy HOWARD FENDRICH Associated PressASHBURN, Va. If other teams worried about LSU running back Derrius Guices character, prompting his fall from first-round prospect to late-second-round pick, Washington Redskins senior VP of player personnel Doug Williams figures he had inside information. The Redskins, Williams said at a post-draft news conference Monday, did not share the concerns that apparently were behind Guices slide until Washington took him with the 59th overall choice after trading down from No. 44 and adding a thirdround selection in the process. Williams called him a value pick. We do have some inside information and some influence that helped us along the way. Plus, we had met with the kid. We went to dinner with the kid. We brought the kid up here. Where Guice is from, Im from the same area, basically. I knew Guice. I knew who he is. I know where he comes from, Williams said. And when you talk about a kid that has produced on the field the way he has, other than what was out there, and you look at this kid, man, hes just a happy-go kid who likes to play football. And I think we were fortunate enough to get a guy like that. Guice, the SEC record-holder for most 250-yard rushing games, was connected in reports to a flap during his visit with the Eagles, something Philadelphia general manager Howie Roseman denied. No one wants to hear their name be slandered like that, Guice said Saturday during a Redskins draft event at the teams stadium. The Redskins, he added, believed in me; they trusted me. Williams said any reports about off-field issues were not a part of Washingtons draft discussion. What other teams thought dont necessarily mean what we thought. ... When hes there at your pick, you have to take advantage of it and pick that guy. And we did that. We didnt let what other people said influence us. What influenced us is the information that we had gotten from him and the people around him. We had a lot of sources that we talked to, the MVP of the 1988 Super Bowl said. You and I both know the way social media and the media and a lot of other things happen out there when it comes to players. Most of them take one thing and they run with it. Unfortunately, they dont know the kid. Other topics addressed by Williams: The Redskins didnt draft a tight end and they feel pretty good at that position, Williams said, because Jordan Reed is progressing with his injury. Reed needed surgery on his big left toe. B5

Fort White caught a break when Shelnut scored on a passed ball, but the Indians luck wouldnt last. The Indians left at least one runner in scoring position in three different innings en route to the season-ending defeat. I think it was nerves, just pressing, Julius said of the batting troubles. Just trying to do too much. As the game got later and later, wed press more and more. Shelnut stood at third base as the potential game-tying run in the sixth, but the Indians failed to drive him in. The Florida commit finished with two walks and a single. His efforts on the mound and in the batters box didnt go unnoticed though. Hes a nail, Julius said of the standout. He made a mistake on the mound, a bad error but good ball players can forget about it and move on. And he can do that. As the season comes to a close, coach Julius says there will be an added emphasis on strength and conditioning entering the offseason. He says the Indians will also look to improve handling adversity and cleaning up errors on defense. The biggest thing is, like they saw, if you dont play defense then it doesnt matter how good your pitching is.
