Thomas Wesley Defoor, 58, faces charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault, domestic battery and criminal mischief after deputies say he pulled a gun on his wife and threatened to kill her before firing multiple shots. Deputies responded to Southeast Robinhood Place at 9 p.m. Tuesday, according to a CCSO report. A dispatcher reportedly heard eight gunshots while on the phone with Defoors wife. Defoor fled the scene in a white Ford F-150 as CCSO arrived. The wife told deputies her relationship with Defoor ended due to his alcohol abuse, but the two were still married. The disturbance broke out because her boyfriend was at the home, she told deputies. The wife and her boyfriend were on the front porch when By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comChoosing better eating habits can be a scary leap, and doing it with food stamps is even harder but far from impossible. Thats why the University of Florida IFAS Extension Columbia County Family Nutrition Program greeted SNAP recipients Wednesday morning at Winn Dixie for a Cooking Matters at the Store tour, a crash course on shopping smarter and cheaper. I want you to understand you can eat healthy on a budget, the agencys program assistant, Carolyn Jaeger, told the two attendees. Turnout was low because the program is still new in Columbia County. Joining Jaeger were Julia Jones and her friend, Robbie Strickland. What are you most excited about? Jaeger asked the pair. Jones, who recently came to terms with the fact that shes diabetic, responded. To eat better, she said. Jaeger explained the USDAs nutrition plate, which replaced the older food pyramid in 2010 as the preferred way to visualize a healthy ratio of grains, protein, vegetables, fruits and dairy products. No one food group satisfies all our needs, she said. Convenience foods such as baby carrots typically come at a premium compared to items that require more prep work.CARL MCKINNEY/Lake City Reporter IFAS program helps recipients learn to choose more wisely.Smarter shoppings a snap, even with food stamps SNAP continued on 2ACaroyln Jaeger, middle, gives some point ers on buying healthful grocer ies on a budget as part of a pro gram organized by UF IF AS. The pr ogram aims to help SNAP recipients or those eligible for SNAP get the most from their benefits. Defoor Buying Time for the LostCOURTESY LCPDLaw enforcement finds Eugene Y oung S r. alive after a search that lasted more than five hours on May 1.By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comAn hours-long missing-person search last week could have been resolved in minutes reducing the risk of tragedy and saving the taxpayers a lot of money in the process, according to the Lake City Police Department. If 84-year-old Eugene Young Sr. had a Project Lifesaver tracking device, officers could have likely found him in about 10 minutes, said LCPD spokesperson Mike Lee. It wouldve led us straight to him, Lee said. Instead, the search for Young, who has dementia, took upwards of five hours after he was reported missing May 1. An LCPD lieutenant found Young entangled in a fence behind a business several blocks from the LCPD touts Project Lifesaver LOST continued on 2ADEPUTIES: SHOOTING continued on 2A A3

The contenders are: Joseph Helfenberger, former city manager for St. Cloud; Danielle Judd, city manager for Green Cove Springs; Glenn Irby, city administrator for Apopka; Charles Hammond, former town manager for Ahoskie, North Carolina; and David Kraus, who works for Columbia County in multiple capacities such as safety director and grant writer. Vince Akhimie, who offers contractual management services to Avon Park while also serving as the citys public works director, is an alternate. The City Council finalized the list during a special meeting Wednesday night. The choices were consistent with how the council previously ranked applicants in a non-binding score system despite the objections of one council member. Councilman Jake Hill wanted former Lake City Gateway Airport Manager Nick Harwell on the list of finalists, at the expense of Helfenberger, the frontrunner. Mayor Stephen Witt objected. That wouldnt be fair to the ones ranked above him, he said. Harwell scored 12 out of 50 possible points, 10 of which came from Hill. Helfenberger scored 36 points. Hill also suggested that Councilman George Wards rankings should carry less weight than the rest because Ward is not seeking re-election and will be out of office and leaving town within months. Whatever hes suggesting, the rest of yall bought, Hill said. Ward took issue with the remarks. Im not gone until Im gone, he said. Hill said his own opinions on the city manager search have been disregarded by the council. The new city manager will be coming in against a stacked deck, Hill added. Ward pointed out the score disparity between Harwell and Helfenberger, adding that each council member had equal influence in the rankings. That was what all of us came up with, he said. The five finalists came from a short list of 13 candidates. Of those, one was disqualified, one was non-responsive, one accepted another position and one withdrew. Interviews will take place Wednesday, June 6. The city has yet to decide on what criteria it will use to select the best candidate, Witt said. Assistant City Manager Grayson Cason is serving as city manager in the interim while the council moves to fill the position. Former City Manager Wendell Johnson announced his retirement in January. Johnson was set to officially leave office in June, but vacated the position early. The city stopped taking resumes in early April. But after comparing the price per ounce, rather than the overall price, Jaeger found that baby carrots were a better deal that day than their full-sized counterparts thanks to a sale. Canned or frozen vegetables have the same nutritional value as fresh items, she said. All forms of vegetables are good, she said. But canned fruits and vegetables can have added sodium or sugar, Jaeger cautioned. Draining and rinsing canned green beans can reduce the sodium content by about two-thirds, mitigating the impact. Jaeger said savvy shoppers should look for canned fruits preserved in water, rather than sugary juice or syrup. At the end of the tour, Jones and Strickland were given $10 gift cards and challenged to buy an item from each food group. It is like a final exam, Jaeger said. Participants usually come in at around $9.50, she said. The program is funded through a grant from nonprofit group Share our Strength. The reception has been overwhelmingly positive, Jaeger said. Clients themselves are very grateful, she said. Because if their health changes or they just know that they want to try to start eating healthier on their own, it can be overwhelming. The next tour is scheduled for 1 p.m. May 17 at Winn Dixie, 580 S. Marion Ave. Those who receive SNAP benefits or are eligible for SNAP, or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, benefits can participate. SNAPContinued From 1A missing 84-year-olds home. Luckily, he was still alive when we found him, Lee said. But the amount of time we spent looking for him could have made the difference between life and death. Project Lifesaver, a national nonprofit organization, provides free tracking devices to at-risk individuals such as Young. During the search for Young, LCPD had to call in two infrared-equipped helicopters from Alachua County, which dont come cheap. Project Lifesaver trackers have a range of several miles under optimal conditions, making expensive equipment less likely to be necessary, Lee said. Not only can we find them faster, but its in a less resource-intensive manner, he said. LCPD joined the program about a year-and-a-half ago. But no families have signed up so far, Lee said. In general, for a lot of the programs we run, theres that thought process of its not going to happen to me, Lee said. Thats something that we face as law enforcement people who think theyre not going to be the victim, they dont need the service until it happens to them. Project Lifesaver is open to families of anybody who is considered at risk, including children with autism or elderly persons with dementia. As Young was reunited with his family, the threeyear anniversary of the disappearance of Mary Robertson approached. On May 6, 2015, Robertsons husband reported the 61-year-old woman missing after she vanished without a trace from their near Southwest Barwick Terrace and Southwest Parker Lane. Like Young, she suffers from dementia. Three years later, Columbia County Sheriffs Office has no answers as to her whereabouts. Had they had a quicker way to zone in on her earlier in that process, it might have helped them find her, Lee said. Anybody interested in signing up for Project Lifesaver can call LCPD at 386-719-5742. LOSTContinued From 1ADefoor began cursing at her and accusing her of cheating on him, she told deputies. Defoor struck her in the face with both hands, knocking her to the floor, she said. While she was on the ground, Defoor pulled out a 9mm handgun and pointed it at her head, saying, I am going to kill you, the wife told deputies. The boyfriend pushed Defoor away, preventing him from shooting, according to the report. Defoor fell back and fired the gun, the wife and boyfriend said. The boyfriend said he could feel the percussion from the firearm as the bullet traveled dangerously close to his face. The wife and boyfriend grabbed the gun and ran into the home, locking the front door. Defoor used a metal chair to shatter the front windows. Once inside, he grabbed his other guns, according to the report. The wife and boyfriend escaped through the back door and called 911 as they looked for cover. Defoor fired multiple rounds with a .223-caliber assault rifle, according to the report. Deputies found a Ruger handgun on the scene. It was obvious the handgun had been discharged as the hammer was cocked, the report states. The homes front windows were busted, as were the windows of the two vehicles parked on the property. Deputies noted several bullet holes in the vehicles, and found casings on the ground. A be-on-the-lookout alert was sent to surrounding law enforcement agencies. The Jacksonville Sheriffs Office found Defoors truck Wednesday morning at an apartment complex, but he had already borrowed a friends car to drive to Lake City to turn himself in. Detectives executed a search warrant on his truck, seizing a rifle and pistol. Defoor is being held without bond at Columbia County Detention Facility.

As envisioned by Miamis long-enduring Cuban-exile community, it was always supposed to happen with a bang. The forever-hoped-for end of the Castro brothers chokehold on Cuba would be momentous, defining. It would portend the brightest of futures for the island. Instead, the end came last week with a cruel whimper Cuban leader Ral Castro, the highest ranking, still-standing original 1959 Cuban revolutionary, passed the torch to a designated successor, Vice President Miguel Daz-Canel. The ceremony was mostly political theatrics signaling no significant changes and no halt to humanrights abuses. Miami radio commentator Ninoska Perez Castelln, who has opposed the Castros for decades, told the Herald Editorial Board this is simply empty posturing to maintain the illusion of an enduring Cuban revolutionary spirit. This is not a change in power, but merely a strategy, she said. The 86-year-old Castro has now moved out of the spotlight. But no way has he exited the stage. Hell simply be the new presidents puppeteer. Castro will retain the leadership of the powerful Communist Party, the entity that governs politics, the economy and daily life in Cuba with an iron fist. Daz-Canel might be the new leader, but Castro remains the boss. But at Castros age, for how long can that really last? For once, however, there is no other commanding Castro on the horizon. Rals sons are powerful but have remained in the background. That means for all practical purposes, the Castro name will begin to fade from the public arena. Its a small consolation. From now on, the official invitations to international events and talks with the United States will be addressed to Diaz-Canel, not a Castro. He will be the visible face of the government, the target of criticism from a population tired of long decades of anguish, misery and oppression. And Castro, who took power in 2006, never had his older brothers charisma, so world leaders likely will not flock to visit him in Havana and keep his name in the news. So the empty transition should still feel significant on a personal level for the nearly 1 million Cubans or their descendants who were forced into exile by the brothers regime. Even if this change of power is just part of Cuban theatrics, the passage of time has now taken its toll on the Castro brothers. The damage they did is a deep pit of human suffering: The deaths and imprisonment of thousands of Cubans who opposed them and the lives derailed as more than a million Cubans fled forever changed the course of the island, of course, but also of South Florida, the state and the nation. The brothers stayed in power for 59 years between them, as if that were their birthright. The original Castros now are more a part of Cubas past than its future. The new leader, an electronic engineer who just turned 58, has offered no hope for meaningful reform. In his first speech as president, he said that, The revolution continues and will continue to live. That only suggests dragging a moribund past into the future. But hard financial times are ahead for Cuba again because President Trump has curtailed U.S. travel to the island following the unprovoked sonic attacks on U.S. diplomats. We can only hope that the relatively young Diaz-Canel secretly harbors more progressive ideas and invoked the revolution only because the boss was there, breathing down his neck. As always, time will tell.My wife and I were docents of Christ Church in Alexandria, Va., when I worked in nearby Washington, D.C., a city named for a former parishioner. Yes, George Washington went to church there. As I used to explain to tourists, he had even helped get the place built and had his own pew box, but docents will maybe be quiet about that now. And, who knows, the capital may one day change its name. Washington, you see, had slaves, and, in the form of a 150-year-old, marble plaque hanging in the sanctuary, he is being expelled from the church. As a politically zealous rector along with others explained in a statement, this plaque, along with another one memorializing Robert E. Lee, have kept some visitors and guests from ever coming back. They felt unsafe and unwelcome, it was said, and so, pretty soon now, goodbye, George. OK, the part about Lee may be defensible, although he went to the church much of his life and was finally confirmed there after his prayerful wifes loving preachments brought him to a new religious life. Honoring a Confederate general can nevertheless seem outrageous to some. I get that. But Washington? As a docent, I encountered visitors of all kinds, not a one of them offended by the Washington plaque. To the contrary, they were fascinated by his connection to Christ Church. Here, after all, was a wondrously honorable man whose brave leadership helped win the Revolutionary War. He stopped a possible military coup with gentlemanly eloquence. He helped give us a Constitution forming one of the most extraordinary countries in history. His outstanding example as president of the United States was a major factor in the new government actually working As for slaves, he was known to have been constantly kind to them, and, over his life, developed an increasingly abolitionist point of view. He finally arranged for all the slaves at Mount Vernon to be freed after his wife died. Slaves were also part of the Virginia culture in his times, and we are all to some extent creatures of our culture. Christians happen to believe that we are also all of us sinners and that there are such things as repentance and forgiveness. According to a Wall Street Journal article, most of the people who are not coming back to the church are congregants fed up with all the politics and ever less mention of Christ, as one put it. Some new arrivals do appreciate the activist spirit and, the article says, any number of otherwise declining mainstream churches around the country are attracting new members as they become more political. Even when I was at Christ Church 14 years ago and more, politics was scarcely unknown, as I learned by way of some sermons implying capitalism was hell. But it was also a wonderful place, a home of grace blessed with an amazing choir, a strong sense of love, opportunities for intense association and some of the best friends I have ever had. It was an experience that lifted me in so many ways. Churches should clearly stand against such evils as racism, but politics can be technical along with posing moral questions one should want to help the poor, but a wrongly conceived welfare program can do more harm than good, for instance. Politics can also be divisive when other means of addressing each other are not. That brings me to something terribly moving the other day. University of Alabama football players were at the White House to celebrate their winning of the national championship. Then some gathered around President Donald Trump to pray, not as a matter of politics one way or the other, but as a way of asking God to give him peace. There was something joyous here, a lot more joyous than removing a plaque of George Washington from a church.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINIONProject Lifesaver really isWhen an 84-year-old man with dementia went missing last week, LCPD went into high gear to find him before time ran out. We are glad to say they were successful. Five hours later, Eugene Young Sr. was safely back with his loved ones, as recounted in a report on todays front page. The story might easily have ended badly. But it might have ended even better and with far less drama. Project Lifesaver is the key. It is a national program to place electronic tracking devices on elderly individuals such as Mr. Young who are afflicted with dementia. Had Mr. Young been fitted with such a device, he might well have been found in minutes. If you have someone like Mr. Young in your family or a child with certain disorders, for that matter you should check out this free service. Call LCPD at 386-719-5742. You might just stop a tragedy in its tracks. Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY Miami HeraldOn this date: In 1775, Ethan Allen and his Green Mountain Boys, along with Col. Benedict Arnold, captured the British-held fortress at Ticonderoga, New York. In 1863, during the Civil War, Confederate Lt. Gen. Thomas Stonewall Jackson died of pneumonia, a complication resulting from being hit by friendly fire eight days earlier during the Battle of Chancellorsville in Virginia. In 1865, Confederate President Jefferson Davis was captured by Union forces in Irwinville, Georgia. In 1924, J. Edgar Hoover was named acting director of the Bureau of Investigation (later known as the Federal Bureau of Investigation, or FBI). In 1933, the Nazis staged massive public book burnings in Germany. In 1940, during World War II, German forces began invading the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Belgium and France. The same day, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain resigned, and Winston Churchill formed a new government. In 1941, Adolf Hitlers deputy, Rudolf Hess, parachuted into Scotland on what he claimed was a peace mission.

Barnhill, the reigning USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year, makes her second appear ance as a Top 10 finalist, while this represents Lorenzs first appearance. The Top 3 Finalists will be announced May 23, while the winner of the 2018 USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year award will be revealed on May 29 prior to the start of the NCAA WCWS in Oklahoma CityBarnhill, Lorenz headline All-SEC awardsBIRMINGHAM, Ala. The Southeastern Conference announced its annual softball awards for the 2018 season Tuesday morning. The Florida softball team garnered 10 differ ent accolades including both SEC Player and Pitcher of the Year. For the second year in a row, Kelly Barnhill was tabbed as the SEC Pitcher of the Year, while Amanda Lorenz earned her first SEC Player of the Year award. The pair of juniors were dominant over the course of the 2018 regular season. Its only the second time in program history, first since Lauren Haeger and Kelsey Stewart in 2015, that UF has swept both awards. Im very proud of all of our players who have worked so hard this season and to be rec ognized by the SEC and the SEC coaches shows how that hard work has paid off. Head Coach Tim Walton said. It takes a team to be successful, so these awards are shared with every player, the coaches and the staff. Barnhill and Lorenz both headlined the All-SEC First Team selections and were joined by seniors Nicole DeWitt and Aleshia Ocasio to round out the first team selections. Hannah Adams registered a spot on the All-SEC Freshman Team along with Jordan Matthews.

By DOUG FERGUSON Associated PressPONTE VEDRA BEACH Their relationship has been softened by age. The needle is sharp as ever. Never mind that Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson have only five victories between them over the last five years. Its a big deal when the two best players of their generation are in the same group at any tournament, much less The Players Championship. Mickelson, of course, wanted something even better. I look at the cover of the newspaper and the pairing is on there and the excitement thats been going on around here, it gets me thinking, Mickelson said. Why dont we just bypass all the ancillary stuff of a tournament and just go head-to-head and just have kind of a high-stakes, winner-takeall match. Lefty was just getting warmed up. Now, I dont know if he wants a piece of me, he said, pausing for laughter, but I just think it would be something that would be really fun for us to do, and I think there would be a lot of interest in it if we just went straight to the final round. Or maybe not. They have played as a twosome in the final group just twice in their careers, and Woods won both times in Legendary duo is set to tee off today at The Players Championship.AGE continued on 5B COLLEGE BASEBALL AUTO RACINGDillon, Bowyer, Suarez teams penalizedAssociated PressDAYTONA BEACH The teams for drivers Austin Dillon, Clint Bowyer and Daniel Suarez have been penalized by NASCAR after the race at Dover.

Dillon, the Daytona 500 champion, had his team hit with a $25,000 fine to crew chief Justin Alexander and his car chief was suspended for one race. Bowyer and Dillon were already in NASCARs playoffs this season because of victories. Suarez, who is winless, fell three spots to 20th in the standings and is 27 points out of the postseason cutoff. Justin Allgaier, who won the Xfinity Series race at Dover, had his team fined $25,000, his crew chief suspended two races and lost 25 driver and owner points for a parts infraction: JR Motorsports blamed car damage on the last lap for the problem and said it would not appeal.

Noles complete season sweep of JUCOURTESY OF FSU ATHLETICS Florida State pitcher Austin Pollock winds up to pitch against Jacksonville on Wednesday, helping lead the Seminoles to a season sweep over the Dolphins.From staff reportsTALLAHASSEE Freshman Austin Pollock tied a career high with six innings pitched, striking out eight, and Florida State (3316) beat Jacksonville (31-17) 10-4 Wednesday evening at Dick Howser Stadium. FSU swept the season series against the Dolphins for the second straight year. Jacksonville has an RPI of 20, head coach Mike Martin said. We know they are very talented, and to win like we did is a credit to our baseball team. Very proud of the way they bounced back. Jacksonville scored in three different innings, and the Seminoles answered with multiple runs each time. Pollock (4-4) allowed four runs on eight hits in 6.0 innings. Freshman Jonah Scolaro earned his sixth save, and fifth of at least three innings, pitching the final three frames and allowing just three hits and striking out five. I was very pleased with Pollock, Martin said. I thought he threw with a lot of composure. He didnt get rattled when things didnt go his way. He continued to battle. Offensively, four Seminoles had a pair of hits, while Reese Albert set a career high with three RBI. Cal Raleigh had his fourth consecutive Pollock strikes out eight to lead Florida State to a 10-4 win over the Dolphins.NOLES continued on 6B Results from the Ladies Invitational, 6B.

Gigolos Billions NBA PLAYOFFSFinally: Warriors-Rockets is the series everyone wantedBy TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressThe buildup for this series truly began in February, with some pointed comments from Golden States Draymond Green. Or in October, when Houston won at Golden State on ring night. Or in June, when the Rockets landed Chris Paul. Whenever it started, however it started, its clear that this is the series that the NBA-watching world wanted. Western Conference finals, Golden State versus Houston, Game 1 on Monday on the Rockets home floor. Series winner to the NBA Finals, series loser will undoubtedly feel like they let a championship ring slip away. They got us. We got them, Green said. Got to go out there and play. Well see who better. After more than 10 months of playing, posturing and some pontificating, it really is that simple. This Rockets team was assembled the key being the trade for Paul last summer with hopes of unseating the reigning champion Warriors from their perch atop the NBA. So far, so good. Houston set a franchise record with 65 wins in the regular season, went 2-1 against the Warriors in games that were hyped at the time though seem meaningless now, and has the likely MVP in James Harden. But how this Houston season will be remembered hinges largely on the outcome of this series. Everybody at the beginning of the year thinks theyve got a chance to be here, Houstons P.J. Tucker said. Everybody talks about winning. Everybody talks about fighting for a championship. ... We really believed it. Were really fighting to get there. This is not a game. Everybody takes their job serious. Hes right on all counts, particularly on the talking. And the talking will most definitely continue over the next few days. With five full off days between the Warriors and Rockets respective second-round clinchers on Tuesday and Game 1 of their series, a lot of people will be saying a lot of somethings. I think its going to be a great series, said New Orleans coach Alvin Gentry, whose Pelicans fell in five games to the Warriors in the West semifinals. I think it will be very entertaining. I think the people will have a great time watching that series, because you have great players out there. ... Im looking forward to it. Hes hardly alone. For as great as LeBron James has been, again, the West matchup is going to overshadow the East finals between Cleveland and either Boston or Philadelphia. Thats no disrespect to the East; thats just reality given the seasons that the Warriors and Rockets have had, and the collision course that seemed so inevitable for either to avoid. The whole worlds been waiting for this matchup, Hall of Famer Shaquille ONeal said in his role as an analyst Tuesday night on TNT. The three WarriorsRockets games were about as anticipated as any in the regular season: Golden State lost two of the three, and the final combined score of those matchups was Warriors 353, Rockets 352. That was so long ago, Warriors forward Kevin Durant said. I think both teams are different and playing better. So you know, I try not to look at those games but we kind of know, they know what we do and they know what we do. Its the second time in four years that Houston and Golden State have met in the West finals; the Warriors ousted the Rockets in five games in 2015 on their way to the NBA title. Golden State was the No. 1 seed that year, Houston was No. 2. The seeds are flipped this time, after Houston finished the regular season with the leagues best record. This is the first time since 2014 a span of 15 series where Golden State will have to play Game 1 on the road. Every series you play, it gets harder and harder and harder, said Warriors guard Stephen Curry, who is seeking a fourth straight trip to the NBA Finals and third ring in four years. So following that trend for sure. The verbal jousts between the Warriors and Rockets go back to the preseason, with Green questioning Houstons commitment to defense. And after Houston beat Golden State 122-121 on opening night of the season, that prompted Rockets coach Mike DAntoni to turn that phrase back around on Green. It picked up in January, when the teams split a pair of games. And in February, Green told Sports Illustrated that he knew the Rockets were focused on knocking the Warriors off. Noted. Great. Well see yall soon, Green said then. Soon, now, has a definitive date. Soon is Monday.NHAT MEYER/Bay Area News Group Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry (30) takes a shot against New Orleans Pelicans Anthony Davis (23) in the first half of Game 4 of the NBA Western Conference semifinals on Sunday at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, La. By JIMMY GOLENAssociated PressBOSTON Jayson Tatum caught a pass underneath the basket, shook off a hit and went up for the go-ahead layup with 23 seconds left and the Boston Celtics beat the Philadelphia 76ers 114112 on Wednesday night to advance to the Eastern Conference finals. Tatum scored 25 points, Jaylen Brown had 24 and Terry Rozier 17, sinking a pair of free throws after forcing Joel Embiids turnover in the final seconds. Al Horford added 15 points and eight rebounds for Boston, which will play Cleveland for the second straight year for a spot in the NBA finals. Game 1 is Sunday in Boston. Embiid had 27 points and 12 rebounds for the 76ers, who roared back into the playoffs for the first time since 2012, winning won 20 out of 21 games before Boston beat them three straight times to open the conference semifinals. Dario Saric had 27 points and 10 rebounds, and Ben Simmons added 18 points, eight rebounds and six assists. Embiid had a chance to tie it after Tatum made it 111-109 with 18.8 seconds left. But he missed a heavily contested layup, failed to tip it back in and then grabbed that rebound, too. Rozier knocked the ball out of his hands, off his leg and out of bounds with 10.8 seconds left. Rozier made a pair of free throws to make it 113109 eight straight points for Boston. J.J. Reddicks 3-pointer cut the deficit to one. Marcus Smart missed his first free-throw attempt and appeared to try to miss the second, too to force the Sixers to bring the ball up the court with the clock running but the ball went in. Philadelphias fullcourt inbounds pass was intercepted by Smart, and he threw the ball in the air to run out the clock. The Celtics and Cavaliers will meet in the Eastern Conference finals for the second straight year.NBA PLAYOFFSCeltics beat 76ers in Game 5, advance to face Cavs

LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, MAY 10, 2018 3B DEAR ABBY: Our daughter turns 5 soon, and my wife still breastfeeds her to bed every night and wakes her a few times a night for more breastfeeding. This has had negative consequences on our marriage. All my daughters peers have been weaned and have been sleeping alone through the night for the last three years. Our daughters mouth is filled with cavities, and my wifes breasts are no-touch zones sexually. My wife refuses even to consider stopping. Is it time for me to leave? -PERPLEXED DAD IN WISCONSIN DEAR DAD: No, its time for your daughters pediatrician and her dentist to be informed about this because it may not be healthy for your child. Your wife appears to be fostering dependency instead of helping the girl to achieve independence. Your wife may think she has been doing the right thing, but if her own emotional needs are so great that she cant alter her parenting style, you may want to consult a licensed family therapist for guidance. DEAR ABBY: Our 28-yearold daughter, the mother of two, is in the middle of a divorce from her husband of three years. The divorce is not yet final, but shes already involved with a new man. He is eight years older, jobless, has terminal cancer, lives with his father and is raising his 6-year-old daughter. This relationship seems wrong in so many ways, we cannot imagine how this could ever come to any good. My daughter is intelligent. She has a promising management position with a big company. But shes not the kind to listen to any advice, and has never made good decisions when it comes to men. Any advice from you would be greatly appreciated. -UNSURE IN TEXAS DEAR UNSURE: Because you love your daughter, be patient and supportive. There is no way to save a daughter who consistently makes poor choices about men and wont listen to advice. Some people have to learn life lessons the hard way. The sooner you accept it, the better your own life will be. DEAR ABBY: My hubby and I are in our 50s and have been happily married for 26 years. We have no children. As we look ahead (hopefully many years) to the disposition of our assets once weve passed, we wonder, what do childless couples do with their formal wedding portraits? Im positive that our siblings would not want or have room for such large photos, and the photographer is no longer in business. I hate to think mementos of such a treasured event in our lives will be tossed in the trash. Any ideas? -SUSIE IN SOUTH CAROLINA DEAR SUSIE: If any of your relatives views himor herself as the family historian, offer the portraits to that person to be given upon your demise. Or, although the portraits are large, they could be digitized and added to the family tree. This way, your relatives could have the digital versions, and you and your husband could have the originals placed in your coffins with you when the time of departure arrives.

Be careful how you handle a peer or someone you are doing business with to avoid damaging your reputation, status or position. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Youll be taken advantage of if you arent careful. An offer you receive will not be realistic. Take a practical approach when dealing with someone who tends to brag or makes promises that are too good to be true. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Clarity will be required when dealing with others. If something doesnt sound right, question the one offering the information. A personal problem will grow due to poor communication or emotional evasiveness. Dont settle for less than you deserve. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Embrace your dreams. Make the effort to do something youve always wanted to do. Use your imagination to incorporate something unique into your plans. Express your feelings and make your intentions clear. A partnership will enhance your life. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You may want to make a change, but you are better off sitting tight for now. The less you spend or get involved in ventures that are costly or risky, the better. Someone will offer you false information to lead you astray. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A serious attitude regarding educational pursuits, children or networking events will help you keep anyone trying to take advantage of you at a distance. Dont let a personal matter interfere with taking care of your responsibilities. Know when to say no. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Personal growth should be your goal. Make adjustments to a relationship that has left you feeling like you are heading in opposite directions. Listen, compromise and make amends so you can move forward in a positive manner. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Short trips, planning an adventure or taking on a new creative project will give you something to look forward to. A chance to form a partnership with someone you find unique and intriguing will inspire you to try harder. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Someone you thought you could trust will disappoint you. Discuss your concern and offer solutions you think are necessary if you want to move forward. Dont give in or neglect to be truthful about the way you feel. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Youll be given an opportunity to try something different. Your ability to pick up skills and knowledge effortlessly will put you in a good position. Clear a space at home to explore new possibilities. Someone from your past will surprise you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Dont feel you are in a competition. Do your own thing so you can avoid getting involved in a costly venture that will benefit others more than yourself. Personal improvements and a healthy lifestyle should be your intent. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Let your creativity take over. Youll come up with a great idea that can help you bring in more cash. A unique opportunity will come from someone you least expect. Refuse to let someone from your past disrupt your life. Singer Henry Fambrough of The Spinners is 80. Singer Donovan is 72. Singer Graham Gouldman of 10cc is 72. Singer Dave Mason is 72.

The next step is having a chance on Sunday. The four-time major champion has learned to love the TPC Sawgrass learned to like, he quickly clarified with a smile and he has taken small steps toward contention. The Stadium Course has a history of not favoring any one style of play, and the list of winners at the PGA Tours premier event illustrates that, going from Greg Norman to Lee Janzen, from Tiger Woods to Craig Perks, from Henrik Stenson to Tim Clark. I felt like it handcuffed me, McIlroy said. I felt like I was just being stubborn, trying to hit driver where theres no point in hitting drive. So Ive learned to take it for what it is a very positional golf course. Attitude is everything in golf, especially on this Pete Dye-designed course created on land that used to be a swamp. McIlroy said he now looks forward to The Players Championship, even though he has yet to finish closer than four shots of the winner. Much of that has to do with the water, just not any found on the golf course. I started staying on the beach a few years ago, and thats made the event a lot more enjoyable, McIlroy said. McIlroy is not alone in his struggles. Jordan Spieth has gone the opposite direction. He nearly won the first time he played and didnt even make a bogey until his 59th hole. He tied for fourth. And that was the last time he played on the weekend at Sawgrass. I just kind of assumed that it would come easy to me, Spieth said. Dustin Johnson has never finished better than a tie for 12th. That was last year, and he had to close with a 68 to finish that high. Even more remarkable for the No. 1 player in the world is that he has shot in the 60s just three times in 30 rounds. It all starts to unfold Thursday, the final time The Players Championship will be held in May after a 12-year run before returning to the pre-Masters date in March. The star attraction is Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson paired in the same group for the first time since the 2014 PGA Championship. This is only the second time they have played with each other on the Stadium Course. The other was the third round in 2001, when Woods holed a birdie putt from one end of the island green to the other on the par-3 17th and wound up winning the next day. Woods has won twice at Sawgrass. He has never missed the cut. But he has been perplexed by the Stadium Course, just like so many others. He has finished out of the top 20 in just over half his appearances, some of those when he was the most dominant player in golf. Theres no way of faking it around this golf course, said Woods, who won his first U.S. Amateur at Sawgrass in 1994. The golf course negates a lot of different things. Were all playing from basically the same spots off the tees with our approach shots. Mickelson has said of his 2007 victory, I cant believe I won here. The purse has been raised to $11 million, with the winner getting just under $2 million for a weeks work. The field is always among the strongest last year, only the three full-field majors had a higher-rated field. And while it has an All-Star roster of champions, equally impressive is the list of players who havent won. That includes the top five players in the world, all of whom have a mathematical chance to be No. 1 by the end of the week. First, they have to figure out Sawgrass. Its a golf course that can frustrate you, McIlroy said. I think thats what Pete Dye does so well. He can frustrate you by the design of his golf courses, and you feel like youre getting bad breaks, and that can get under your skin a little bit. ... I think the mental side of golf is way more important than the physical. You can struggle with your swing and struggle with your putting, but if your mental side is on point, youre going to have a chance to win every week. McIlroy has his own star group with Spieth and Justin Thomas, three players in their 20s who have combined for eight majors. The forecast is for warm temperatures, which should translate into a firm, fast course. When it gets firm and fast, its hard, Thomas said. Its the hardest par 72 well play. ... You have to just take what it gives you, and take you medicine when you get out of position. 2005 at Doral to return to No. 1 in the world, and in 2001 at the Masters when he completed his sweep of the majors. So when Woods was told about Mickelsons jab questioning whether he wanted a piece of him, Woods knew exactly where to go. First of all, big picture, Woods said as his smile widened. When a reporter thought Woods meant their record while playing in the same group amazingly, the mark is 16-16-4 Woods cut him off. How many times have we won on tour? he said. They have never been particularly close in the record book. Woods has a 79-43 lead in PGA Tour victories, 14-5 in the majors. Matt Kuchar once told a story about how Mickelson would be dishing out his best material in the team room at the Ryder Cup, and if he ever didnt have a comeback, he would simply reveal how many majors he has won to shut up the room but not without surveying his audience. He can only say that if Tigers not around, Kuchar said. He has to look over both shoulders and make sure, because then Tiger gives him his number. They were never particularly close off the course, either. Both will say that their relationship was overblown in the media, and there might be some truth to that. They lived on opposite ends of the country and had different lifestyles for so much of their careers. They got along fine because both are professionals, but it was never more than that. There still were some fun moments. One year they were in the locker room at the Byron Nelson Classic when Mickelson challenged Woods to anything at their disposal. How about pool? Pingpong? How about anything that involves running, Woods said, and he walked away leaving Mickelson searching for a comeback. And there have been some tense moments. Mickelson mentioned in a magazine interview going into the 2003 season that Woods used inferior equipment. Mickelson posted one of the great closing rounds in major championship history with a 66 to win at Muirfield in 2013, and when asked to comment on the round, Woods said only that the course was gettable that day. Their most famous pairing was when they were partners in the 2004 Ryder Cup, and that didnt end all that well. They lost both matches. Woods is 42 with two children. Mickelson is 47, and the oldest of his three children started college last year. They still are competitive as ever, though both are statesmen in the game. Mickelson has never failed to give Woods credit for his impact on the game, particularly the attention he brought to golf that resulted in mammoth TV contracts and prize money that made everyone rich. Mainly because of Woods, Mickelson has never been PGA Tour player of the year, has never been No. 1 in the world and has never won the money title. It was the most remarkable golf in the history of the game, and I think unrepeatable, Mickelson said. I think it was that good. I look at 2000 as being kind of the benchmark at the U.S. Open as being the greatest golf Ive ever witnessed and I believe has ever been played. And it sucked to have to play against him. Lefty still got in a few jabs that year. He ended Woods six-tournament winning streak at Torrey Pines in early 2000. At the end of that year, he beat him at the Tour Championship to end four straight years of Woods winning when he had at least a share of the 54-hole lead. They have been there for each other in tough times. Woods reached out to Mickelson when his wife, Amy, was diagnosed with breast cancer. Woods told of Mickelson sending nothing but encouraging texts when Woods was struggling with his chipping in early 2015 as his back was still ailing. He offered numerous times to help me out with technique and just about it, Woods said. I said, Yeah, you and I have the same philosophy in how we approach chipping and how we do it. I just cant physically do it. But now its different. I feel better, Woods said. And my short game has turned around. Game on.

Cals leadership is beginning to stand out, Martin said. He is as good a competitor as any catcher Ive had. His teammates feed off of him. Cal doesnt have the opportunity to be disappointed because hes catching 92-mile an hour fastballsI cant say enough about what this young man brings to our ball club. JU took an early lead off Pollock with a sacrifice fly by Angel Camacho in the first inning. That followed a leadoff walk to Chris Lehane and a hit-andrun single from Scott Dubrule. Pollock struck out the final two hitters of the inning to avoid further damage. FSU responded in the bottom of the frame when the first four batters reached base vs. Dolphin starting pitcher Austin Temple. Steven Wells walked, followed by back-to-back singles from Jackson Lueck and Rhett Aplin. After Aplins RBI single, Raleigh walked and Lueck scored on a throwing error by the JU catcher. Alberts sacrifice fly gave FSU a 3-1 lead. The Dolphins tied the game in the third on three consecutive one-out hits. Dubrule notched an RBI single and scored on a Pollock wild pitch. Dubrule finished the day 3-for-4 with a walk. Seven of JUs 11 hits came from the top four hitters in the lineup. FSUs top of the order responded in the bottom of the third against JU relief pitcher Matt Meyer (1-1), scoring three runs on three hits. Lueck walked, moved to third on Raleighs single and scored on Drew Mendozas RBI single for a 4-3 lead. Alberts second sac fly of the game scored Raleigh and Rafael Bournigal doubled for a 6-3 FSU lead through three innings. After three straight scoreless innings, Duncan Hunter hit a first-pitch home run in the top of the seventh off Pollock to trim FSUs lead to 6-4. Pollock threw one more pitch before getting relieved by Scolaro, who got FSU out of the frame with a tworun lead. FSU again answered the Dolphins, scoring a pair of runs in the bottom of the seventh on an RBI double from Albert and an RBI single from Bournigal, both with two outs. Reese has been very impressive, Martin said of Albert. Hes gotten better with each opportunity. The Noles tacked on a pair of runs in the eighth inning Raleighs RBI double and Mendozas RBI single.
