Gulf sturgeon have begun their annual migration back into the Suwannee River, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Sturgeon are known to strike boats, sometimes causing death or injury. One encounter has already been reported this year, but there were no injuries. Even one person getting hurt is too many, said FWC Regional Commander Maj. Andy Krause. We want people to be aware the sturgeon are back in the Suwannee and that a risk of injury to boaters does exist. Suwannee River encounters with creatures can be fatal.Sturgeon are back, and just as jumpy as ever STURGEON continued on 2ARUM ISLAND REALLY IS, SAYS SCOUT Tells BOCC of illegal activities, including use of alcohol, marijuana.By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comNude sunbathing, drug use and other unsavory activities are out of control at Rum Island Springs County Park thanks to invaders from Alachua County, a teenaged Boy Scout and his father told the Columbia County Commission Thursday night. Seventeen-year-old Rodney Stragham urged the board to take action to clean up Rum Island, saying visitors are openly breaking park rules and the law. Inebriated guests, mostly from Alachua County, bring contraband such as beer and marijuana and are frequently accompanied by dogs, Rodney said. The quiet and peaceful atmosphere of this nature preserve is violated by the outrageous behavior of these patrons, he said. Rodney, who spent months working on the presentation as a project for the Eagle Scouts, said he and his father once saw two young women smoking marijuana near the river.

There were about 50 students altogether dancing and singing and grooving to the music of a local DJ at Quail heights Country Club. Exceptional Student Education teachers, aides and parents lined the walls taking pictures and serving as chaperones at the event.

Thanks for reading. special needs prom for our own students in Fort White and my SGA students this year just decided that they wanted to do it and do it on a bigger level for all the county, said Deidre Houk, one of two FWHS SGA advisors. They said, why cant we spread that and do that for everybody? I said we can. Lets bring everybody together. Columbia High School ESE students and staff were there along with those of Fort White Middle School. She said ESE students can attend the school proms held each year, but the goal was to give them something uniquely their own. They also are included in that but they ... sometimes feel just out of place or just out of sorts and so we wanted something to be special for them so that they have something that was theres, she said. Students from CHS SGA played an integral role organizing the event, Houk said. Weve got a joint effort here between FWHS SGA and CHS SGA thats putting this on for their kids, Houk said. She said CHS helped bring in local restaurants for food donations. But she added that finding businesses to contribute wasnt hard. When we reached out to the community they were so willing to help in every single way that we never got a no, she said. Every single person we asked said yes. Quail Heights donated the facility, Texas Roadhouse donated rolls, Phish Tails donated chicken, Olive Garden gave a second dish of food, Kountry Korner provided side dishes and Serv Pro donated candy, Houk said. Though its the first time for a countywide ESE prom its the third such event for FWHS, Principal Keith Couey said. I come every year, its by far the best thing I do a year, said Couey. Because it puts every kid from the top of my classes to the lowest of my classes in one envirnonment and they all fit in. Homecoming king and queens of the schools were dancing with the ESE students along with several SGA students from both schools. The DJ was Kyle Couey, a security guard at FWHS, Houk said. Columbia High School Principal Trey Hosford also made an appearance at the event.

ABOVE: The ESE prom was organized by SGA at Fort White High School in coordination with SGA members of Columbia High School.Researchers with the U.S. Geological Survey reported that the fish began returning to the Suwannee River in January because of the warm winter. There were three reported sturgeon strikes in 2017, resulting in minor injuries. FWC officers will be on patrol during the summer months in an effort to educate boaters about how dangerous the jumping fish can be. The best course of action is to go slow, wear your life jacket and keep people off the bow of the boat, Krause said. The Suwannee is a beautiful river and we certainly dont want to scare anyone away from enjoying it. We just want those recreating there to be aware these fish are present and can jump at any time. FWC is asking boaters to traverse the waters slowly to reduce the risk of impact and allow for more reaction time if they encounter a sturgeon. Life jackets should also be worn at all times while on the water. Researchers believe sturgeon jump to communicate with other fish and to gulp air to fill their swim bladders, allowing them to maintain neutral buoyancy. In 2015, a 5-year-old Trenton girl, Jaylon Rippy, died after a sturgeon strike. The fish jumped into her boat in the Suwannee River, striking her and family members. Jaylons mother, Tanya Rippy, 31, and 9-year-old brother Trevor suffered injuries and were airlifted along with Jaylon to UF Health Shands in Gainesville. Jaylon died soon after, according to FWC. STURGEONContinued From 1A guage and play loud, offensive music, he said. Boats carry coolers full of beer to crowds of young guests, he said. When confronted about their behavior, abrasive guests have responded with rude or sarcastic comments, Rodney said. He said guests have blown cigarette smoke in his face to intimidate him and his father into leaving. Nude bathers also find refuge at the park once the families are driven out, he added. Rodneys father, Steve Stragham, an assistant scoutmaster, also addressed the board, saying the neighborhood is fed up with the troublesome guests. Weve just had it up to here, Stragham said. Commissioner Ron Williams said the conditions at Rum Island have been a concern for decades, suggesting the county may need to look into privatizing the operation. Rum Island has been a thorn in the side, Williams said. Later during the meeting, commissioners approved a $150,000 grant agreement for the Rum Island improvement project.

No people were hurt, but a dog perished. Fire Inspector/Division Chief Josh Wehinger spoke at the smoky scene while firefighters doused the trailers charred remains around 2:30 p.m. Thursday. Columbia County Fire Rescue firefighters could see the black smoke as they pulled out onto the highway to travel less than a mile to the scene, he said. It was about three-quarters involved, said Cody Cannon, one of the Station 48 firefighters first to the fire. He was covered in sweat, red-faced and breathing heavy, sitting on a tarp under shade trees a few feet away from the trailer on the 90 degree afternoon. He said he helped extinguish the flames that had within a matter of minutes gutted the older-model manufactured home. Either that or they waited a while to call because our station is right down the road, Cannon said. At the time firefighters were working to extinguish remnant pockets of fire in the trailer frame. An investigation would wait until the fire was entirely out, Wehinger said. We havent even started any type of investigation. This was the second fire within a week in this neighborhood so probably well turn this one over to the state fire marshals office, Cannon said. Neighbors Kristin and Younisney Diaz said they were at home watching TV while the trailer burned less than roughly 10 feet away. Younisney raises carrier pigeons. Their covered cages could be seen in front of the residence inches away from charred grass. Younisney said the smoke and heat likely killed a few of them. He released the others. They flew circles over head after he set them free. The renter of the house declined to give his name, but said he had nowhere to go and lost his dog in the fire. He drove up to the scene after the house was destroyed, and said he had been at the doctors office. The man, who said he had lived there for some time, said he had no idea what couldve started the fire. I dont know. I was gone. I wasnt here. Usually I be in the house, he said. I lost everything, my dogs in there. I dont see my dog. I dont know where my dogs at. A few yards away sat the burnt hull of the weeks previous trailer fire. Despite the proximity, the man said hed had no issues in his residence. The owner of the trailer park was at the scene as well. He said he wasnt there when the fire started and was waiting on the fire marshals investigation results. Little to no debris was spread across the surrounding area from the fire. However, across the highway from the trailer park there were three or more pages of the Bible, each charred along the outer edges. On the south side of 441 rested a page, apparently ripped from the book of Job with its 27th chapter faceup. On its opposite side were passages rife with mention of fire and destruction and condemnation, with the phrase turned up as it were fire along the top right hand corner. On the north side sat Job 38 and a charred section of 2 Chronicles.COREY ARWOOD/Lake City RR epor ter AA second Camelot Loop residence was destroyed by a fire in a week, a local fire official said prompting an investigation by the state fire marshals office.

At a time when journalism matters more than ever, the White House Correspondents Dinner made it a punchline. The annual black-tie gathering of journalists, politicians and celebrities toasting each other while roasting politicians is supposed to celebrate the First Amendment and fund scholarships for student journalists. But Saturday nights event only bolstered President Donald Trumps complaint that the media is biased against him. Absent a major overhaul, its time to end this hottest-ticket-in-town event, which does a disservice to journalists everywhere. Its jokes make people believe reporters arent objective. Its jokes further undermine public trust in the media. Its jokes are getting in the way of the journalism. Its not just that this years featured comedian, Michelle Wolf, came off as mean-spirited, not funny. Its that members of the Washington media, who cover a president elected to drain the swamp, laughed whole-heartedly. They came across as not only having misunderstood the American electorate in the last election, but still not understanding life outside the beltway. Trump gets it. So rather than attend the celebrity soiree, he went to the Heartland for a rally that scored political points and raised campaign money. Why would I want to be stuck in a room with a bunch of fake news liberals who hate me? the president asked in a fundraising email before the event. Yes, comedians like Wolf should be able to say whatever they want and face the laughs or boos that follow at a comedy club or on a TV show. But when its the Washington press corps inviting her to their party, those journalists risk sharing the backlash of jokes that go too far. Its out of bounds to mock how Sarah Sanders looks and call her an Uncle Tom for women, to advocate for Kellyanne Conway to be pinned under a tree and to compare the contributions of Ivanka Trump to that of an empty box of tampons. Wolfs cringe-worthy jokes made us feel sorry for these women, whose jobs deserve scrutiny. Neither can we criticize President Trump for having made harsh assessments of certain womens looks, then condone a journalism event that sinks to his level. Defenders of the dinner say its OK for the press and politicians to have a night where they let their guard down, share a few drinks and rib one another in the name of a good cause. Its been more true in years past, when the jokes were more bipartisan and when past presidents attended to take a turn at the microphone. But that time is over. And we live in a much more perilous time. Trump calls the press the enemy of the people, words dictators use before shutting down a free press. The president has attacked individual journalists and press organizations in ways weve never seen. He wants people to believe the nations problems arent the nations problems, that the problem is journalists telling people whats going on. Hes also imposed tariffs on newsprint the paper used to publish newspapers which is leading to more job losses at media organizations. This years White House correspondents dinner only gave the president more ammo. The White House Correspondents Dinner is DEAD as we know it, Trump tweeted Monday. This was a total disaster and an embarrassment to our great Country and all that it stands for. FAKE NEWS is alive and well and beautifully represented on Saturday night! This comes at a time when there are so many important stories to tell. Climate change. Gun violence. Racial discrimination. An opioid epidemic. Election meddling. Immigration. Public corruption. Objective reporting will be dismissed or ignored if people dont trust reporters. The publics distrust of journalists reaches beyond Washington. We often hear people call something fake news, almost with a laugh. But by perpetuating and normalizing this myth, they are undermining an institution so essential to our democracy that it is written into the Constitution. For the only way citizens can govern themselves and make smart choices is if they know whats going on. And that takes an informed media committed to fairness, integrity and objectivity.Isnt Lake City and Columbia County a great place to live? Our people are friendly, generous, helpful, kind, resourceful But, we all can do even more to make ours the very best community it can be! Well, very soon, something wonderful is coming to Lake City, to help us do that. Several months ago, three of my fellow board members from Richardson Community Center and I were invited to attend the Florida Faith Symposium in Orlando, where the Richardson Center was nominated for the best nonprofit community service organization in Florida. The symposium was conducted by 4Generations Inc., a nonprofit corporation with a mission of bringing together all generations, all citizens, and to inform, make aware and make available all the community resources, facilities, programs and opportunities for everyone in the community, and to empower those citizens and families to have a significant part in their community, and to make the best use of those valuable services. I realized that those ideas, and that mission, fit perfectly with our own mission statement at the Richardson Center. I asked the founder and president of 4Generations, Jack Levine, if we could put our heads together and bring a community seminar and workshop to our own Lake City and Columbia County. As a result, the 4Generations Lake City seminar will come to our Richardson Community Center cafeteria here in Lake City. There will be room for approximately 40 participants. For the best chance of admission, you must RSVP before May 11. One session is scheduled for Tuesday, May 22, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The second session is scheduled for Wednesday, May 23, from 9:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. Each session will consist of an introduction, helpful information, and a description of the program and how it will work. For the second hour, we will break into small group discussions, with around 8 at each table. Every participant will have an equal opportunity to address and help develop ideas for improving specific town and county issues and concerns. Its a chance for everyone no matter who you are, what age, sex, race, religion, or political affiliation to have an equal say in this community planning session. There will be one facilitator assigned to each table of 8 or so citizens. You can have as much influence as anyone else in developing ideas that can guide our community into the best, most democratic, and forward-thinking and positive-thinking future for each and every one of us. What you can do: You are invited to apply. RSVP Required: Email jack@4Gen.org by 5:00 p.m. Friday May 11. Please put Gen Seminar in the subject line and provide your name, e-address and phone number ... and which of the two date/time options you choose to attend. Or mail your request to Jack Levine, Founder; 4Generations Institute; P.O. Box 10875 Tallahassee, FL 32302. Your reply will be acknowledged. I encourage you to take part in this innovative positive step in contributing to our community. I dont expect this effort to stop here. Hope to see you there!

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINIONA prom of their ownThe looks on some of the parents and chaperones faces was almost as good as the looks on the faces of the students themselves. Pure joy. The inaugural Exceptional Student Education prom, held Thursday at Quail Heights, was a success and then some. These students deserved their very own countywide prom and they finally got it. Kudos to everyone in the county school system who made it happen. Your work made the world a slightly better place for all of us on Thursday. Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY On this date: In 1776, Rhode Island declared its freedom from England, two months before the Declaration of Independence was adopted. In 1830, the Edward Bulwer-Lytton novel Paul Clifford, with its famous opening, It was a dark and stormy night, was first published in London.

Can you believe summer is just around the corner? Even though the weather is giving us fair warning, it seems unreal that we are in the last month of school. It occurred to me that we take great pains to prepare our children for heading back to school every August, but I wonder if we put much thought into how they will spend the summer. You may be thinking, Isnt this supposed to be summer vacation? Absolutely! What I am suggesting is not a rigid schedule, but just a to-do list of sorts with some goals to accomplish during the break. One of the best reasons behind this thought is the findings of a recent study that reported a 155% spike in childrens TV viewing during the summer. This has become such a concern that the American Academy of Pediatrics published a report identifying our childrens TV habits as a national health hazard, contributing to kids obesity, and serving them an unhealthy portion of murder, consequence-free sex and commercial messages every year. A quick flip through the channels confirms the findings of this report. Not so many years ago American morality would not have stood for the things that are freely flowing on TV today: promiscuity, coarse jokes, blatant disrespect on every level: children to parents, teachers and the elderly, men to women and vice versa, the betrayal of friendships, not to mention the sex and violence-all bathed in crude humor. What in the world are we watching, and do we really think that these unhealthy portions will not affect our thoughts and actions, as well as those of our children? King David didnt have television but he did have a great thought that we can apply today: I will set no worthless or wicked thing before my eyes (Psalm 101:3) We are wise to follow suit! Here are a few suggestions: set a goal to read one book a week and then head to your local library; plan a day to head to the springs or beach with a few friends or family; bake some treats and visit an elderly person or a nursing home; visit a museum; join a Zumba class together (lots of fun!); plan a board game night; organize family photos into an album and relive some fun memThe late Dr. D. James Kennedy related an account of a woman he was attempting to share with the Gospel. When he said, we need to be saved so as to gain heaven and miss hell, she responded that her god was a god of love and would not send anyone to hell. Dr. Kennedy repeatedly shared with this lady Scriptures that speak of a place of eternal torment and the need to be saved from such a place, only to have her repeat her initial asseveration. Finally he recognized her refusal to accept what the Bible said, for what it was. He told her she was right, her god would not send anyone to a place called hell, but her god was a god of her imagination and not the God of the Bible. This anecdote serves to highlight the results of a recent Pew survey titled, When Americans Say They Believe in God, What Do They Mean? It is an important question. One statistic that has remained constant over decades of polling religious views is ninety percent of Americans claim to believe in God. The problem with that statistic is we have witnessed a steady drift away from biblical principles and practice in daily life here in America to the point that any honest and careful observer would be prompted to ask what Jesus did in Luke 6:46, Why do you call Me, Lord, Lord, and do not do what I say? This is the reason that so many claim to believe in God and even claim to be Christian, and yet speak and act in complete contradiction to what the Scriptures have revealed to us about the nature and will of God the Father and Christ. Their so-called faith is as dusty as their Bibles, and they have allowed their memories, of what they may or may not have read, to be supplanted by their imaginations. One of the reasons I am continually reading through my Bible is because, like everyone else, I have a great capacity to forget and need to constantly be reminded of what the Scriptures teach. My understanding and memory are bolstered by this discipline. The God Christians worship is revealed to us in the Bible, so we do not worship the Bible, but the God of the Bible. But He is unknown to us except for FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, April 4 & 5, 2018 w ww.lakecityreporter.com 5A The privilege of sonshipOur families in this world are so broken that we sometimes do not understand fully what it means to be a son or a daughter. But as we go through this passage on the temple tax we will get an inside look at what it means to be an adapted child into Gods family. Please read Matthew 17:24-27. Matthew is the only one who records this event as they return back to Capernaum. The collectors of this temple tax do not ask Jesus this question about the temple tax personally but ask Peter. You know a lot of problems could be avoided if we would just follow what Jesus teaches us in the Scripture. If you have a problem with someone go to that person directly and ask them. So, they ask this question to Peter in such a way that they are expecting him to say yes Jesus does pay the temple tax. Peter then goes into the house to inform Jesus of what just happened, but before he could do so, Jesus ask him this question, What do you think, Simeon? From whom do kings of the earth take toll or tax? From their son or from others? Jesus deity is revealed once again in the way that he asks Peter a question first, before Peter can share with him what had happened. Jesus goes on to tell Peter that the sons are free from having to pay the temple tax. Here in this sentence Jesus equates being a disciple of his with being an adapted child into the kingdom of God. The only way anybody is adapted into the family of God is through Jesus Christ. Jesus teaches us that being a child of God has its privileges. He also teaches us that with the privilege of being an adapted son or daughter that we will want to be careful to not offend others unnecessarily. Jesus says, However not to give offense to them, go to the sea and cast a hook and take the first fish that comes up, and when you open its mouth you will find a shekel. Take that and give it to them for me and for yourself. (Matt. 17:27) This is one example of being free to do something and it, in and of itself, would not be a sin if Jesus and Peter didnt pay the Temple tax. But Jesus puts his mission ahead of his personal rights and privileges as a son and goes ahead and pays the tax. We learn another lesson in this response from Jesus. That he will provide for us what we need when we need it. In our passage of Scripture today we learn that only the disciples of Jesus are considered sons and daughters of God. As we grow in our discipleship, we learn to not unnecessarily offend others and that God will always meet our needs according to his glorious riches in Christ. Will you follow Jesus as his disciple and enjoy the privilege of being an adopted child?

Ergo, I agree with what the late Derek Prince said, You do not serve God more than you serve the Bible, you do not obey God more than you obey the Bible, and you do not love God more than you love the Bible. Moses told Israel, Know therefore today, and take it to heart, that the Lord, He is God in heaven above and on the earth below; there is no other, Deuteronomy 4:39. In truth, there is no other God than He who is revealed to us in the Bible, all the rest are idols of mans imagination.

Contact Eric Jackson or Jordan Kroeger754-0420 754-0421ejackson@lakecityreporter.com jkroeger@lakecityreporter.com By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comColumbias locomotive offense is already turnings heads. With a talented group of wide receivers back, the explosive Tigers expect to be at maximum speed this fall. Its only the second week of spring practice and the receiving corps is proving to be one of the teams strongest position groups this year. Opposing defenses no doubt will be challenged by the speedy unit, highlighted by four-star prospect T.J. Jones. Im happy about it this year because we all come with it, said rising junior receiver Marquez Bell, who picked up his fifth college offer Thursday from Tennessee. Nobody is lacking, everybody is coming with it We all hold each other accountable. Nearly every day of spring practice, college recruiters have occupied the sidelines, trying to catch a glimpse of Columbias star-studded group, which includes rising sophomore speedster Jaden Butter Williams and rising senior Bobby Fulton. There hasnt been this much hype surrounding the receiving corps since the spring of 2015 when the Tigers were equipped with Dallon Washington, Latrell Williams (Tennessee) and Jadens older brother, Mike (Nebraska). Columbia reached the state semifinal round that year, coming just shy of a championship appearance. Columbia head coach Brian Allen is excited about the teams potential, specifically at receiver, but maintains each unit on offense must be on point for them to shine. We got a very good core group of guys that well be able to go in each night with, but if you have all of those dudes and you cant get it to them then We come with it Follow @LCR_Sports on Twitter for local stories, score updates and morePREP FOOTBALL: Fort WhiteFILEFort White running back Corey Dryden runs up the field during spring practice on Apr. 29 PREP FOOTBALL: ColumbiaPhotos by ERIC JACKSON/Lake City ReporterColumbia receiver Bobby Fulton makes a catch during Thursdays practice. By JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE There isnt one man that can replace JacQuez Pelhams production. Thats why Fort White is relying on two. As the Indians wrap up their second week of spring practice, the backfield duo of Corey Dryden and Stanley Maxwell are leading the way for the offense. The two have taken in upon themselves to fill Pelhams role, not separately, but together. Its hard to replace him because he was such a big back but were anxious to see what Corey can do as the featured back, Fort White coach Demetric Jackson said. Theres some things Stanley can do to give us some more mix. Coreys still that inside runner but he has good enough speed to get outside. With Stanley, he can make you miss a little bit so weve got a two-headed monster back there. Pelham led Fort White with 820 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns last season. No one on the team had more than five and Dryden and Maxwell only had four apiece. Dryden and Maxwell didnt even have as many carries combined as Pelham, who held the rock 137 times. The duo did combine to rush for 971 yards on 134 carries though, and they may need to double those numbers this fall. But theyre ready. I dont feel any pressure, Dryden said. I feel like weve got the talent. As long as we believe in the team weve got it and theres nothing to worry about. Immediately following the teams regional quarterfinal loss to Florida State University, Dryden and Maxwell hit the weight room. They spent a lot of time behind those four walls all offseason, preparing for their time to shine this spring. Jackson was pleased with their effort and preparation, so much so that hes been able to focus more on developing young quarterback Brayden Summers in practice. Maxwell is also Columbia receiver T.J. Jones catches a pass during Thursdays practice. Backfield duo ready for challenge at Fort WhiteDryden, Maxwell will be counted on to replace 2017 leading rusher JacQuez Pelham in the backfield.DUO continued on 6B HORSE RACING: Kentucky DerbyBaffert back at Kentucky Derby with another favoriteBy BETH HARRISAssociated PressLOUISVILLE, Ky. Bob Baffert is back at the Kentucky Derby with early favorite Justify after watching the race from his sofa in Southern California last year. The Hall of Fame trainers ability to produce Derby contenders year after year is an enviable feat and why his absence a year ago stood out. It was just his second since 2009 and occurred because his lone candidate got hurt. Baffert will saddle Justify and 30-1 shot Solomini in Saturdays Derby. Justify is one of the greenest colts Baffert has brought to Churchill Downs. Hes won all three of his starts by a combined 19 lengths. If Justify wins, hed be the first to do so since Apollo in 1882 without racing as a 2-year-old. The thing about the Kentucky Derby, you have to have the right horse. It just happens. You cant force it, Baffert said. All of a sudden, you have good horses and youre there. So Ive been really fortunate to have some really good horses. Bafferts four victories are tied for second-most in Derby history. Hes finished second three times, too, including in 2012 with CHARLES BERTRAM/Lexington Herald-Leader Hall of Fame trainer saddles Justify and Solomini in race.BAFFERT continued on 6B Kentucky DerbyRace: Saturday, 2:30 p.m. TV: NBC Last years winner: Always Dreaming Columbias receiver corps has developed as spring gets underway.TIGERS continued on 6B > ONLINE: Check out the slideshow to see more photos from Thursdays practice B2

PAGE 11

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Be careful how you handle others. Conversations can quickly turn into disagreements if you aren't willing to back down. Don't let anger take over when reason is what's needed. Give everyone the opportunity to have his or her own opinion. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Business trips or visiting relatives will give you greater insight into what's ahead. Dealing with supervisors, parents or individuals looking for your assistance will put you in a good position to ask for something you want in return. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take care of personal affairs. Medical issues should be a priority, and dealing with institutions will help you sum up what you should be doing to counter any problems you face. Listen to the voice of reason. CANCER (June 21-July 22): An emotional situation left unresolved will create stress. Talk to someone you trust or an expert who can help shed light on a situation that needs to be dealt with before it has the chance to grow into something unmanageable. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don't share too much information with your colleagues or those trying to gather personal information. Caution will help you avoid being taken advantage of or slotted into a position that doesn't suit you. Change can be good if it's your choice. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You are in control. It's time to move forward and bring about the changes that will lead to a better life. Open up about your dreams with those you want to be a part of your future plans. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You'll face opposition. Problems at home will mount, and arguments are likely to take over if you try to do something that isn't favored by family or someone in a position of authority. Don't make an untimely move. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Learn all you can, and rely on your ability to ferret out hidden information that can help you make important decisions. Look at your relationships and make choices that will benefit the ones you love. Trust your instincts. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Someone from your past will reach out. Before you open up, find out why the sudden interest. It's in your best interest to proceed with caution. A lot of hype and empty promises will eventually turn into chaos and disappointment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Secret conversations will be misinterpreted. It is best to have someone you trust along with you to take notes or be your backup if someone tries to accuse you or put you in a compromising position regarding what transpires. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don't let anyone take advantage of you or what you have to offer. If someone tries to coerce you into taking on responsibilities or getting involved in something that is too costly, take a pass and work alone. Focus on home and family. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Choose your associates based on what they have to offer and how beneficial it will be to you. Don't put up with anyone trying to manipulate you emotionally. Know what you want, and be r elentless in your pursuit. DEAR ABBY: When I met my husband, he dressed impeccably -suits, sharp sport coats, monogrammed shirts, freshly pressed dress slacks, top-of-the-line leather shoes. Even when we went out with friends for a casual night or a movie, he still dressed well in current, fashionable clothing. I fell in love with a man who dressed beautifully (my father was known for his attire as well, which is perhaps why I like the successful look). Now that hes retired, his jeans always look dingy (theyre not dirty; they just look like they are), his sneakers look worn, and he just doesnt care about his appearance like he once did. When we go out together, Im embarrassed. I love the man who used to care about his appearance, not this retired, sloppy-looking guy. Am I wrong to be embarrassed? -LIKES THE OLD LOOK DEAR LIKES: I wish you had mentioned how long you and your husband have been married, because over the last 40 years styles have changed. People of both sexes dress much more casually. Your husband may have dressed more formally years ago because there was a dress code at work and it was expected with the crowd with whom you socialized or the places you went. At this point, he may feel that because hes retired he has earned the right to dress comfortably. Yes, you are wrong to be embarrassed. What is important is how your husband feels about himself. How he presents himself is a reflection only on him -not you. You might suggest a shopping trip so the two of you can update those jeans and sneakers, but if he wont bite, you would be wise to let him off the hook. DEAR ABBY: My significant other and I have five children between us. He has a son and daughter from a previous marriage, I have a daughter from a previous relationship, and we have two daughters together. I love all our children equally, but my significant other complains nonstop about my daughter from the previous relationship. He nags about every little thing she does, which he never does with his own children. I have talked to him many times about the favoritism he shows toward his kids over my daughter. I understand shes not perfect, but how can I get him to treat all of the children equally? -EQUALLY CONFUSED IN TEXAS DEAR EQUALLY CONFUSED: Children arent stupid. In fact, they are very perceptive. Im sure your daughter recognizes that the man her mother lives with doesnt like her and treats her differently. If you cant get through to him that what hes doing is unfair and damaging to your child, and that he needs to tone it down, then explain to her the reason why its happening. And if necessary, enlist the help of a licensed family therapist to change the dynamic.COMMUNITYS SUNNY SURFACE HIDES NEIGHBORHOOD GRUDGESDEAR ABBY: My wife and I live in a small town in the Northwest. After many years here, feeling that a warmer climate may be better for us, we decided to retire and move to a 55-plus community. We researched and visited several, and recently bought a home in one with about 5,000 residents and a lot of senior activities. After closing, we stayed around for several days to get better acquainted and got a rude surprise. Everyone we met was very friendly, but quite a few seemed to have a grudge about at least one other person in the community. Weve always made friends easily. What can we do or say to be able to be friends with neighbors who have grudges against each other (If you are friends with them, you cant be friends with us)? -NOT TAKING SIDES IN THE SOUTH DEAR NOT TAKING SIDES: It appears you not only moved south, but also into an elementary school complete with playground politics. Do not allow yourselves to be shanghaied into an exclusive relationship with anyone who tries to blackmail you this way. If your neighbors cant get along with each other, let it be their problem and see them separately. DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I have been together for two years and are in a committed relationship. Yesterday he told me he isnt sexually satisfied. I was shocked. I thought our sex life was good overall. However, he says he feels hes doing most of the work and Im not adventurous enough. Hes not looking for anything crazy, but I have limited experience and lack confidence in this area. How do I get my confidence up and meet his needs? -UNSURE IN ILLINOIS DEAR UNSURE: Have a talk with your boyfriend. Tell him you are glad that he was honest with you about his feelings. Then ask what he meant by adventurous and what he would like from you. It could be something as simple as you initiating the sexual encounters more often. But if its not, it will be the beginning of an important conversation. DEAR ABBY: I received an invitation to a belly and bells shower. The bride is expecting (belly) and her wedding shower is included (bells). Having never received an invitation that honors both events, Im not certain how to respond gift-wise. Do I buy two gifts? Shes registered at two sites, one for baby and one for bridal. -CONFUSED IN MICHIGAN DEAR CONFUSED: Yes, two gifts are whats being requested. What those gifts should be is up to you -although you will get some idea of what the young couple will need by visiting the two websites. After the shower is over, the rule of etiquette is that you should receive a wedding invitation. If you choose to attend, another gift will be in order, so dont put away your checkbook.

6B F RIDAY, MAY 4, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER IN BRIEF Petersons 2 eagles carries him to lead at Quail Hollow Tiger Woods gured his even-par 71 in his return to Quail Hollow would keep him and everyone else fairly close to the lead at the Wells Fargo Championship. That was before John Peterson came to life late Thursday afternoon. Peterson holed a bunker shot for eagle, holed a wedge from the fairway for eagle on the next hole, and wound up with a 65. Peterson had a two-shot lead over ve players, from Quail Hollow member Johnson Wagner to PGA Tour rookie Keith Mitchell. Two-time winner Rory McIlroy was in the group at 68. Woods was six shots behind after a day in which he struggled to get his speed right on the greens. Georgia coach Kirby Smart 2 eagles carries him to lead Georgia coach Kirby Smart cashed in Thursday after leading the Bulldogs to the national championship game. The schools athletic association approved an extended seven-year contract and a new compensation package worth $49 million roughly doubling Smarts original deal. Athletic director Greg McGarity said it was money well spent. Kirby has provided an incredible level of energy and excitement to our football program, and we look forward to his leadership for many years to come, McGarity said in a statement. Smart initially signed a six-year deal that paid him about $3.75 million per season when he took over as the Bulldogs coach before the 2016 season. Knicks agree to deal with Fizdale to be new coach David Fizdale is coming back to coaching as the latest pick of the New York Knicks to turn around their franchise. The Knicks agreed to hire Fizdale on Thursday, a person with knowledge of the details said. The former Memphis Grizzlies coach will replace Je Hornacek, who was red last month after two seasons. The Knicks then conducted a lengthy search before agreeing Thursday to a deal in principle with Fizdale, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal was not ocially announced. ESPN rst reported the agreement with Fizdale. Cowboys Witten retiring sans Super Bowl for TV job Just days away from turning 36, Jason Witten is leaving to be the analyst for ESPNs Monday Night Football telecast, a move the network conrmed after Wittens retirement announcement. The decision by the franchise leader in games, catches and yards receiving is the same one friend and longtime teammate Tony Romo, the club passing leader in yards and touchdowns, made last year with CBS. As recently as two weeks ago, Witten suggested he might play until he was 40 and said he absolutely was returning. He acknowledged the oer from ESPN changed things. In those moments, those other things didnt exist, said Witten, set to call the Cowboys home game against Tennessee on Nov. 5. I was certain when I went through it that I wanted the blessing of Jerry and his family, an opportunity I have to stay around the game. pleased, admitting the running back position has become easier just a few months removed from 2017. I feel a change. The weight room has really changed us on the field, Maxwell said. Blocking to me is 10 times easier. Im hitting the holes and we block for each other. Its more of a brotherhood. Were building that bond together. Dryden has been on the varsity squad since his freshman year but this will be the first time hell be asked to carry a large load. The rising senior has spent the past three seasons as the teams fullback behind Pelham. Now, hes even teaching new fullback Mason Manning the ropes while learning his own. Last year JacQuez was more of the leader out of the running backs. Me and Stanley were kind of second-in-command and now me and him are sharing it, Dryden said. We picked each other up and make sure no one gets down. With Pelham graduating, Fort Whites offense will look a bit different than in years past. While Jackson has typically used a backfield with one halfback and one fullback, the Indians will use more two-tailback sets this season featuring Dryden and Maxwell. The duo is excited to show what theyre made of in the teams spring game vs. North Florida on May 18. Last year we all shared reps and if someone was tired we helped, Maxwell said. This year its just us two and we work with each other. We helped each other out. I really dont feel any pressure. I feel like I can take on the role. DUO Continued From 1B Bodemeister, also the last time he had two starters in the same year. Like Justify, Bodemeister didnt race as a 2-year-old. He set a blistering pace and led the Derby until the final 150 yards when Ill Have Another overtook him to win by 1 lengths. Magnum Moon, the 6-1 third choice, also is unbeaten and didnt run as a 2-year-old. Its going to happen, Baffert said, referring to the curse being broken. Whether it happens this year or whatever, but it will happen because Bodemeister almost got away with it. But I dont really worry about that. Baffert almost had a third starter this year until McKinzie developed a hind end issue that knocked him off the Derby trail. When McKinzie got hurt, I wanted to throw up, he said. I really think McKinzie would probably be second choice here. Wed really have a 1-2 here. Justify cleared the biggest pre-Derby hurdle by drawing the No. 7 post. Jockey Mike Smith can use the colts early speed to position him well for the long run to the chaotic first turn. Solomini ended up in the No. 17 post; no horse has ever won from there. Baffert turned 65 in January, making him eligible for Medicare and retirement at most other jobs. However, he entertains no such thoughts. I work hard at it. I just dont give up, the white-haired trainer said. Im constantly meeting people. Theyre sending me horses. If you dont have success, youre not going to get those opportunities.

We just got to make sure were getting the pieces of the puzzle around. And that were able to give our quarterback time to do the things that he does with his arm and legs. Inside or outside, Columbia quarterback Jordan Smith has plenty of options to torch defenses. His star receivers are slated to have an impact on special teams too. Allen says Bell or Williams will be on punt/kick return duties this fall with last years electric return guy Darien McQuay now graduated. You look at that core group of receivers: Quez is able to return, Butter is able to return, the eighth-year coach added. We have guys that are to fill in that role that (McQuay) did and have ton of ability to do it. So Quez and Butter will be the guys getting touches back there. Columbia will miss last years reliable senior receivers in Jamille Bullock and Nate Maxwell but the squad has enough firepower to fill the void. Andrew Myers, Devun Louis, and Diamonte Jones are among others who are providing depth at wideout. With their combination of size and blazing speed, the Tigers are poised to bring the district title back to Lake City, and vie for the schools first state title since 1967. Columbia looks faster than ever perhaps nowhere more so than at wide receiver. Were going to do it this year, Bell added.
