The rain system that has moved in off the northeast Gulf of Mexico has, as of Tuesday, broken the record for precipital water, which refers to the amount of water within a column of air, for the area. The previous record for May 15 was 1.97. For today, it was 2.06. Its moving north ward from the Keys, said Meteorologist Andrew Kennedy of the National Weather Service office in Jacksonville. Kennedy said this system is expect to last through the weekend and possibly into early next week, moving inland and reinforced by upper level flows. Were going to be wet But dont expect severe weather, say the experts.

John Jay Lee, 46, of Southwest Sefner Court, was involuntarily committed to a psychiatric institution after his mother reported the threats to law enforcement around 5 p.m. Monday. The mother told deputies Lee came to her house on Southeast Inglewood Avenue after he called to express rage at his ex-wife.

Despite its expected duration, Kennedy said the system has a low chance of producing outbreaks of severe weather. The main threat is heavy rain, he said. Kennedy said that it has been about three weeks since northeast Florida and southeast Georgia have received any measurable rainfall, adding that southeast Georgia has been in a drought. This is much needed rainfall for our area, he said. WETContinued From 1A By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comThroughout her young career, Grace Elizabeth Harry steered clear of one certain word. Tuesday that changed. Grace Elizabeth (thats how shes known now) is a certified supermodel. Vogue said so. And she said shes going to run with it after the fashion magazine said her supermodel status was cemented by a newly announced Este Lauder contract. Im a very humble person so its very hard for me to say Im the next Gisele, said Elizabeth. She conceded, I will call myself a supermodel if they will. They said it first so I guess I get to use it. At 21, the Lake City native just landed a career contract as the top makeup lines newest spokesmodel. It rocketed her three-year career to the top of the fashion world and through a personal career goal. If you want to see Elizabeth, dubbed fashions fastest-rising sensation, go to Este Lauders website, scroll down and read her introduction on the companys main page. The move was announced in the Vogue feature piece on Elizabeth published Tuesday. The company made it official on Twitter Tuesday as well, with its own announcement and a Grace Elizabeth introduction video. Shes modeled with top fashion brands like Chanel and Versace, and posed for an insert-name-here list of famous designers and photographers. A glimpse into her supernova career can be found on her Instagram account with a brief overview of hundreds of images from shoots and her own cell phone photography. Her first cover shot was for Currents Magazine in 2015. Shes filled its pages and that of the Lake City Reporter, which documented her rise from local high school student to jet-setting model. The Vogue piece was also rife with references to her hometown and her favorite things to do during brief stays here, like fish, swim in the Ichetucknee and eat at the Marion Street Deli and Pub. Tuesday afternoon she was preparing for a flight out of the Orlando airport to Portugal when she set up time with her agent for a conference call with the Lake City Reporter. Portugal would have to wait. Her flight had been held over. It always happens to me, said Elizabeth. Shed been in town for four days. She said shed slept most of that time, recuperating from weeks worth of jet lag accumulated during her stops on a global circuit of modeling shoots. When I get [home] I sleep for three days which kind of ruins it, she said. I just feel so relaxed when I get there. When shes not resting, she said she bowls with her brother and goes to Baskin-Robbins. A supermodels favorite flavor: butter pecan. Its kind of a ritual, she said. Elizabeth said she was in New York when she learned about Este Lauders offer. She did what all supermodels would do, (I) called my mom, everybody freaked out. But after the freak-out she said she felt relief. She said she had now marked off two career goals. One of my first goals when I started modeling. I wanted to walk in Victoria Secret shows, she said. The second goal was a beauty contract. Im very relieved ... I really wanted to work with EL because its such an iconic, long-lasting brand. Though now a seasoned veteran to a catwalk and a camera with an upward career trajectory, she answered a few questions about her work day, which she said occasionally consists of 12-15 hour days on set. Her least favorite part? Maybe 5 a.m., call time, theyre not my favorite, she said. Her favorite? I get to see the world. I get to meet some of the most amazing and inspiring people. Its really kind of changed my perspective on life, Elizabeth said. I get to see whats out there. responded to locate Lee. LCPD responded first, since the mothers address is inside city limits. Lee said his ex-wife had taken everything away from him, the mother told deputies. Lee accused his ex-wife of turning their daughter against him and said she had taken their horses away from him, the mother said. After the phone call, Lee arrived at the home in a furious manner, the mother told deputies. He pushed his way around his mother and walked to the closet where the guns were stored. The mother said she tried to stop him, but he pushed her out of the way. Lee then commented that he was going to take care of all of them, the mother told deputies. When the mother threatened to call law enforcement, Lee said, good, maybe they will take me out, she said. Lee took two shotguns, one or two .22-caliber rifles and one pistol, according to the report. The ex-wife completed a sworn statement for LCPD, which provided a copy to CCSO. Deputies found Lee at his home on Southwest Sefner Court. Lee was in his front yard, but fled inside the home at the sight of law enforcement, according to the report. Deputies tried several times to contact Lee through phone calls and the loud speaker of a patrol car. He refused to speak with any law enforcement officer, according to the report. Lee called his mother and asked her to tell authorities hed start shooting at them if they didnt leave the property, the report states. After setting up a secured perimeter, a CCSO negotiation team called Lees son, who was inside the home with his girlfriend. The son agreed to leave the house. Once outside, the son called Lee and advised him to surrender, according to the report. Lee agreed and called a CCSO sergeant to surrender peacefully. Deputies turned Lee over to LCPD, which took him to Meridian Behavioral Healthcare. LCPD processed a public records request for documents about the incident, but did not provide any by press time. Under a provision in the school safety bill passed after the Parkland shooting in February, law enforcement can file for an order from a judge to temporarily prevent at-risk individuals from accessing firearms. A law enforcement source said such action was taken with Lee. THREATSContinued From 1A Supermodel? No doubt now for Lake City woman. By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comA rainy-day traffic stop Tuesday morning netted a drug seizure worth more than most Lake City homes, according to the Columbia County Sheriffs Office. A Toyota traveling south at 78 miles per hour on Interstate 75 two miles north of the U.S. Highway 90 exit caught the attention of a deputy around 10:22 a.m., according to a CCSO report. Due to the wet road conditions, the deputy conducted a traffic stop on the car, a rental with a Georgia tag. The driver and sole occupant, later identified as 34-year-old James Edward Moss of Lake City, pulled over and waited for the deputy to approach. The deputy told Moss that he would receive a written warning for speeding due to the weather and road conditions. Another deputy arrived at the scene with a K9, which gave a positive hit for drugs in the car. Deputies found two black bags and a white leaf-blower box. One of the bags contained clothes. The other two had 20 vacuum-sealed packages of heroin and 14 packages of suspected methamphetamine. Because the quantity was so large, a multi-jurisdictional drug task force a partnership between CCSO, Lake City Police Department, the DEA and ATF responded to the scene. The methamphetamine weighed about 17 pounds, while the heroin clocked in at roughly five pounds. He was taken to Columbia County Detention Facility on a $5,000 bond for the equipment charge and a $250,000 bond each of two trafficking charges. The estimated street value of the drugs is $360,000, according to CCSO. Its always best to stop the drugs before they get into a community, Sheriff Mark Hunter said in a written statement. This is the latest in a long list of such accomplishments by your deputies and the Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Task Force. Moss

Law enforcement authorities responded to two Florida Black Bear sightings Friday, the first around 9:30 a.m. near a childcare facility on Baya Avenue and the second around 9:30 p.m. near Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center. Columbia County Sheriffs Office depu ties and Florida Wildlife Commission biologists responded to the Friday morning sighting, but the bear fled from the area before they arrived. The sheriffs deputies said they saw tracks actually leading back into the woods, which is what we wanted the bear to do, said Karen Parker, FWC public information coordinator. On Friday evening Lake City Police Department officers reported there was a bear in the area around Lake DeSoto and Shands Hospital. We believe these were two different bears, Parker said. Based on just the way the land is laid out, if that one bear had come up from Baya Avenue through town to Lake DeSoto, we would have probably gotten more complaints than just the two calls we got from law enforcement. FWC officials believe the bear that was seen near Lake DeSoto just wandered in from the Osceola National Park, discovered it was in a bad area and returned to the forest. Based on the tracks from the bear seen near the childcare facility on Baya Avenue, FWC officials believe the bear was a small male, weighing around 200 pounds. Theres no need to panic, Parker said. The bears are very active during the springtime. Its mating season so they are going to be out and about. The FWC wants to alleviate as much human-bear conflicts as possible and suggests property owners: Secure household garbage in a sturdy shed, garage or wildlife resistant garbage can; Protect gardens, bee hives, livestock and compost areas with electric fencing; Feed pets indoors or bring in leftover food after feeding pets outside; Clean barbecue grills and store them in a clean space (bears have an intense sense of smell and leftover food remnants can attract them); If you notice bears in your area, temporarily remove bird feeders; and, Remove ripe fruit from trees. The Osceola National Forest has a healthy Florida Black Bear population. According to FWC records, there are approximately 500 black bears that reside in the Osceola National Forest. The recent bear population count in the Osceola National Forest represents a 92 percent increase from bear population studies done there in 2002. Weve got a lot of bears, Parker said. To have bear come into town is unusual, but its not unheard of. Parker said the last bear sighting in city limits, that she remembers, occurred about 10 years ago when a bear was seen a tree behind KCs Produce. Bears are omnivores, eating both plants and meat, however 80 percent of a Florida Black bears diet comes from plants, fruits, nuts and berries. Parker said motorists should also use caution while driving on rural roadways during dawn and dusk. Studies show that an average of 240 Florida Black Bear are killed on Florida roadways annually. Property owners who encounter a bear on their property can call the FWC bear hotline to report the bear at 888-404-3922. Anyone wanting additional information about Florida Black Bear can call the FWC Lake City office at 758-0525.Live Oak woman injured in crashFrom staff reportsA Live Oak woman suffered serious injuries in a single-car collision in Suwannee County early Friday morning, according to Florida Highway Patrol. Savannah Smith, 25, was flown to UF Health Shands after the 2002 Mitsubishi in which she was a passenger drove off the north shoulder of 80th Terrace around 3:10 a.m. and struck a tree. The impact sent the vehicle spinning counter-clockwise. The driver, Austin Rio Del Camp, 20, of Live Oak, suffered minor injuries and as taken to Lake City Medical Center. Campo and Smith were both wearing seat belts, according to FHP. Campo faces a careless driving citation, according to FHP. The crash was not alcohol related, according to FHP. Every sport. Every play. Every day.Lake City Reporter COURTESYFlorida Black Bears, such as this one pictured, have been spotted in recent days in the Lake City area. One approached childcare facility Friday morning.They meet every Tuesday at noon at the Lake City Club House. Were trying to educate. Lake City people say whats a Kiwanian? What do yall do? I would say that we feed kids, he said. Ronsonet provided information about the Kiwanis Clubs efforts to reduce the number of hungry children in Lake City, which are prevalent in astronomical numbers. The money raised from Kiwanis Kids Day will be spent on food for the Backpack programs we support though the school system where they identify the children in need and we provide the food to send home with the children, according to a written statement from Kiwanis. KIWANISContinued From 1A

PAGE 4

Members of the Florida Constitution Revision Commission want to give kids a better grounding in civics, based on a proposal approved for Novembers ballot. That may or may not happen. But in the process, the commission has given adults their own lesson in civics, one not suitable for children. Its a tale of how government doesnt always work they way its supposed to, and can end up getting hijacked by political hacks whose aims probably arent yours. You may have heard this one before, but it bears repeating. Bundling is what its all about for the FCRC. Rather than present the 20 proposed changes they approved for the ballot as separate measures, FCRC grouped them into eight amendments, several of which are real head-scratchers. The one on civics may not be the worst, but it is surely the most ironic. Amendment 8 groups together the added focus on civics education with term limits on school board members and state control of charter schools. So if you like the idea of enhanced civics, you have to accept 8-year limits on school board members and loss of local control over charter schools as well. Its an all or nothing proposition. If you dont like it, tough. Same with Amendment 6. This one constitutionalizes certain rights for crime victims and raises the mandatory retirement age of state judges from 70 to 75. In addition, the amendment requires judges to independently interpret statutes and rules rather than deferring to government agencys interpretation. That last one marks a sea-change in statutory interpretation that could have a real effect on voters lives, should they ever find themselves in civil court. Yet its just appended there innocuously with two other measures many might find appealing. Amendment 7 pays death benefits to survivors of certain first responders and military members who die in the line of duty. So far so good for most folks, Id venture. The amendment also, and oddly, recasts Floridas university and state college system. Voters may not feel as strongly about that last one, but to get first responders survivors the benefits many feel they deserve, you have to approve the whole thing. Amendment 9 limits offshore drilling as well as indoor vaping. Again, an odd pairing. And so it goes. Some FCRC amendments are straightforward, such as Nos. 12 and 13, which strengthen state ethics law and end dog racing, respectively. Nothing superfluous thrown in. (As for Amendments 1-5, these are single-subject proposals that were added by citizens groups and the Legislature, not FCRC.) All kinds of conspiracy theories surround the bundling of certain proposals by the commission. I wont indulge them here. Besides, even if there were ill intent, to trick voters into passing something they might not otherwise find palatable, the secret has been out for a while. Its a good bet these bundled propositions will go down in flames, as word spreads about how they really work. Should that be the case, it will be a great civics lesson indeed, demonstrating, in real time, how voters are always smarter than some people think, and how the body politic usually finds a way to expel an infectious agent. Well know for sure come Nov. 6.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINIONSupermodel as role modelYou dont often think of supermodels as role models. Grace Elizabeth Harry, the Lake City woman who just signed on to represent esteemed cosmetics maker Este Lauder, is an exception. Shes world famous, but every bit as humble and homespun during interviews as when she was a shy teenager just breaking into the business. She appreciates her career and works hard, but knows in the end that family is whats really important. She gets back to Lake City when she can, which isnt often enough for her. You read a lot about show biz types, with their bloated, grotesque appetites. Having watched Grace Elizabeth grow into her role, we now know not every superstar fits that mold. We are proud to have her representing our town across the globe. Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY On this date: In 1866, Congress authorized minting of the first fivecent piece, also known as the Shield nickel. In 1868, the U.S. Senate failed by one vote to convict President Andrew Johnson as it took its first ballot on the eleven articles of impeachment against him. In 1916, during World War I, France and Britain secretly ratified the Sykes-Picot Agreement, which concerned postwar partitioning of Arab lands held by the Ottoman Empire. In 1920, Joan of Arc was canonized by Pope Benedict XV. In 1939, the federal government began its first food stamp program in Rochester, New York. In 1946, the Irving Berlin musical Annie Get Your Gun, starring Ethel Merman as Annie Oakley, opened on Broadway. In 1957, federal agent Eliot Ness, whod organized The Untouchables team that took on gangster Al Capone, died in Coudersport, Pennsylvania, at age 54. In 1960, the first working laser was demonstrated at Hughes Research Laboratories in Malibu, California, by physicist Theodore Maiman. In 1966, China launched the Cultural Revolution, a radical, youth-driven reform movement aimed at bolstering Chairman Mao Zedong while purging the country of counter-revolutionaries. Its been estimated that during the decade of upheaval that followed, 45 million of people, perhaps more, died as a direct or indirect result of the Cultural Revolution. In 1975, Japanese climber Junko Tabei became the first woman to reach the summit of Mount Everest. In 1988, the U.S. Supreme Court, in California v. Greenwood, ruled that police can search discarded garbage without a search warrant. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop released a report declaring nicotine was LETTERS TO THE EDITORCounty should reject zoning application A real-life civics lesson Robert Bridgesrbridges@lakecityreporter.com Robert Bridges is editor of the Lake City Reporter.To the Editor: At 5:30 p.m. on Thursday the Columbia County Commission will make a decision on an application to rezone rural property on CR 245 (Price Creek Road) from low density residential (1 house/acre) to an industrial classification. There is nothing routine or innocuous about this application and its something that can happen anywhere in the county, so regardless of where you live you should try to attend this hearing. It should probe to be very interesting, and you might even want to voice your opinion. Comprehensive land use plans have been around for many years. To paraphrase, their primary goal is to conserve natural resources, enhance the quality of life, and to promote development to areas that already have in place the resources and services capable of accommodating growth in an environmentally acceptable manner without having a negative impact on other land use classifications or adversely affecting the public health, safety and welfare. (see pages I-1, I-2, I-3 of Columbia County Comprehensive Plan) This application adversely affects residential and agricultural areas in existence long before any comprehensive planning. History (and common sense) tells us that this type of change devalues residential property, denies residents of the quiet enjoyment of their homes, and usually subjects residents to additional safety risks associated with unreasonable increases in vehicular traffic. A recent traffic count done by the county between Hwy 100 and the intersection of CR 245A, revealed a flow of more than 25,500 vehicles per week in an area that contains approximately 500 homes. This count includes fifteen school buses/day Monday through Friday. With the advent of GPS any semi east of US 90 on I-10 is told that the shortest route to I-75 south involves using CR 245. Any reasonable person can see that any additional industrial traffic is not a viable option (in the strictest sense of the word). With plans for the mega industrial park on US 90 on the move, the need for an eastern by-pass is quite obvious. The rezoning of this property (110 acres), originally purchased for building homes, is not crucial to the industrial growth and development of Columbia County. In fact, the owners claimed at the zoning board meeting that any discussion of use at the present would be pure speculation. There are numerous parcels of much more suitable property available, already classified as industrial, and consistent with the goal and objectives of comprehensive planning. The approval of this application (turned down by the zoning board) will inevitably result in considerable expense to the taxpayers of Columbia County. This doesnt make sense or cents unless you are one of the owners of this property. There are other objections too numerous for this letter. I hope to see you Thursday night, It will be interesting.

OBITUARIES The Associated PressTom Wolfe, the white-suited wizard of New Journalism who exuberantly chronicled American culture from the Merry Pranksters through the space race before turning his satiric wit to such novels as The Bonfire of the Vanities and A Man in Full, has died. He was 88. Wolfes literary agent, Lynn Nesbit, told The Associated Press that he died of an infection Monday in a New York City hospital. Further details were not immediately available. An acolyte of French novelist Emile Zola and other authors of realistic fiction, the stylishly-attired Wolfe was an American maverick who insisted that the only way to tell a great story was to go out and report it. Along with Gay Talese, Truman Capote and Nora Ephron, he helped demonstrate that journalism could offer the kinds of literary pleasure found in books. His hyperbolic, stylized writing work was a gleeful fusillade of exclamation points, italics and improbable words. An ingenious phrase maker, he helped brand such expressions as radical chic for rich liberals fascination with revolutionaries; and the Me generation, defining the self-absorbed baby boomers of the 1970s. He was an incredible writer, Talese told the AP on Tuesday. And you couldnt imitate him. When people tried it was a disaster. They should have gotten a job at a butchers shop. Thomas Kennerly Wolfe Jr. was born in Richmond, Virginia. Wolfe, the grandson of a Confederate rifleman, began his journalism career as a reporter at the Springfield (Massachusetts) Union in 1957.

The trouble is that lab tests lie, and dont usually confirm what youre feeling. I had to find that out myself the hard way, and thats why I wrote, Thyroid Healthy.Ever since I dealt with a bout of hypothyroidism years ago, and healed myself completely, Ive been a big advocate of sup plements for thyroid support. One quick thing, your T4 has to lose one iodine atom to for m T3, thats what the num bers stand for. Its the T3 that works, and helps ener gize you, burn off fat, grow pretty hair beautiful and improve memory. Converting that T4 to T3 is a big deal. All the T4 in the world wont cure hypothyroidism if you dont activate it to T3 and to do that, you need certain cofactors and nutrients like the following: Probiotics You need probiotics to convert the T4 hormone you make (or take in the form of medication). As much as 20% of your inactive T4 is converted to T3 in your gut, if your digestion is working well. Unfortunately, many of us have woefully inadequate gut health because we are lacking friendly bacteria. Zinc Zinc is critical for activating T4 to T3 in the liver and kidneys and it improves the function of specific enzymes (deiodinase) which activate thyroid hormone. Remember, you want to activate it by converting the T4 your gland spits out, into T3. Selenium Like zinc, this mineral is also needed for certain deiodinase enzymes which convert T4 to T3. Selenium is also needed to balance excess thyroid activity that may be caused by internal or external stressors. Catalase Hydrogen peroxide is some times high in people with thyroid disorders, so neutralizing it is impor tant, especially if you have Hashimotos. Catalase is as an antioxidant to reduce hydrogen peroxide that you make in your liver. Its extremely beneficial to your blood stream, to your thyroid and to all your organs. By the way catalase helps break down alcohol, thats why some people take it for hangovers, lol! Hydrogen peroxide is a free radical that can take your body over. Hydrogen peroxide has been studied and its implicated in oxidative stress disorders and many chronic illnesses. Ashwagandha This incredible herb stimu lates production of both T4 and T3 in your body. It also nourishes your adrenal glands, so if you feel like you cant cope with str ess, this is a wonderful botan ical to consider. Theres a longer version of this article waiting for you, after you sign up for my free newsletter at suzycohen. com You can heal yourself. Truth is, I used to be a human doing, and I had to train myself to become a human being.

The Lake City Reporter was the rst newspaper to carry her column. From staff reportsA unique program offered at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine aims to develop its students business-related skills from contract negotiations to debt management as practice owners. Ours is the only college of veterinary medicine in the country that offers an academically credentialed business management certificate program, said Martha Mallicote, D.V.M., the programs director and a clinical assistant professor at the college. Started in 2013, the UF Veterinary Business Management Certificate program is an offshoot of a business management course begun by Dana Zimmel, D.V.M., the associate dean for clinical services and chief medical officer for the UF Veterinary Hospitals. As of 2018, 109 students had earned a certificate and 38 veterinary practices had been evaluated through the practice management clerkship, a distinctive piece of the program. Students must perform 10 hours of elective coursework, or six courses. This includes the clerkship, in which students provide the owner with a financial, fee and compliance analysis, along with feedback on inventory management and a strategic marketing assessment. They produce a report summarizing their findings and suggest improvements. Student evaluations are very positive, Mallicote said. We also get good feedback about them finding employment, as well as from employers who have found value in the program. The practices we have worked with are overwhelmingly shocked, in a pleasant way, by the work that we are doing. Mallicote said the programs emphasis on the business side of being a veterinarian cant be overstated. Youll make more money as an owner than you ever will as an associate, she said. That messaging, to me, has been a big part of this program from the start.Photo courtesy Dr. Martha MallicoteUF veterinary students stand outside a clinic they had per formed a clerkship in as part of the UF College of Veterinary Medicines business management certificate program in 2016.

He was 95. The PGA Tour said Fords family notified the tour that he died Monday night. Details of his death were not immediately available.

Weve done good so far we just got to keep the same mentality, center Damien Lewis. We got to go get after somebody every day We just got improve everyday because we got three new linemen.

But the Tigers might have the answer in the new trio which includes Marvin Farmer, Darius Kimble and Mical Anderson. Tyler Ford is also competing for one of the starting spots while a couple other players are adding depth.

His absence will be significantly longer. The All-Star second baseman was suspended for 80 games on Tuesday for violating baseballs drug agreement, becoming among the most prominent players disciplined under the sports anti-doping rules. Major League Baseballs announcement was a stunning development for a middle-of-the-lineup stalwart and a club expected to contend for a post season spot. Cano tested positive for Furosemide, a diuretic that can be used to mask performance-enhancing drugs. In a statement released through the players association, Cano said, This substance was given to me by a licensed doctor in the Dominican Republic to treat a medical ailment. He said he did not realize it was banned. For more than fifteen years, playing professional baseball has been the greatest honor and privilege of my life, Cano said. I would never do anything to cheat the rules of the game that I love, and after undergoing dozens of drug tests over more than a decade, I have never tested positive for a per formance enhancing substance for the simple reason that I have never taken one, Cano said in the statement issued by the players association. Today I decided to accept MLBs suspension. This was the most difficult decision I have ever made in my life, but ultimately the right decision given that I do not dispute that I was given this sub stance. I apologize to my family, friends, fans, teammates and the Mariners organization. AP sources: Tepper to buy Panthers for record $2.2 billion CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Carolina Panthers are being sold for an NFLrecord $2.2 billion. Hedge fund manager David Tepper has agreed to buy the Panthers from team founder Jerry Richardson, two people familiar with the situation said Tuesday. The people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of ano nymity because the team has not yet announced the sale. The purchase is subject to a vote at the NFL owners meeting next week in Atlanta. Richardson announced in December he was selling the team amid an NFL investigation into sexual and racial misconduct in the workplace. That decision came after a report by Sports Illustrated detailing Richardsons alleged misconduct. The leagues investigation into the alle gations is still ongoing. The price tag is the most ever paid for an NFL franchise, eclipsing the $1.4 billion the Pegula family paid to purchase the Buffalo Bills in 2014. Ben Navarro, the founder and CEO of Sherman Financial Group, was considered Teppers biggest competitor in the bid to purchase the Panthers. He conceded Tuesday that hed lost the bid. My family and I are grateful to have had the opportunity to be included as a potential buyer of one of the premier assets in all of the Carolinas the Panthers football team, Navarro said in an email to The Associated Press.

Our hope is to keep our traditional date, tournament director Clair Peterson said. The PGA Tour wants to wrap up the FedEx Cup playoffs before football season, and not just the start of the NFL. The plan is for the season to end before college football gets started, which means finishing a week before Labor Day. The FedEx St. Jude Invitational, which becomes a World Golf Championship next year, would be played the week after the British Open. Players would have to get from Northern Ireland (Royal Portrush hosts the Open in 2019) straight to Memphis, Tennessee. That would be followed by the Wyndham Championship, and then straight into three FedEx Cup playoff events with the Tour Championship ending on Aug. 25. The Travelers Championship is likely to stay put the week after the U.S. Open. The other three weeks would be filled with the RBC Canadian Open, the John Deere Classic and a new tournament in Detroit. Details are being finalized for Quicken Loans to be the title sponsor, though it would not involve the Tiger Woods Foundation. Two weeks before the British Open, the tournament dates next year would be July 4-7. July Fourth has become problematic for some tournaments because family holidays make it difficult to secure volunteers, among other things. And thats just next year. Still to come is the next Olympic year in 2020 when the Summer Games go to Tokyo. Among the discussions is whether the PGA Tour will go dark during the Olympics. Last time, the John Deere Classic was played during the Olympics. US OPEN EXEMPTIONS This is the final week for players to avoid 36-hole sectional qualifying for the U.S. Open, and all Chesson Hadley can do is hope. He is projected to go from No. 62 to No. 60 after this week, but he is not playing the AT&T Byron Nelson and can be passed. Among those on the bubble are Dylan Frittelli (No. 55), Peter Uihlein (No. 57) and Charles Howell III (No. 59). Frittelli is not playing, while Uihlein and Howell are playing the new Trinity Forest course for the Byron Nelson. Thomas Pieters also needs a good week. Pieters is the tournament host of the Belgian Knockout, a new event on the European Tour schedule that features 36 holes of stroke play to reduce the field to 64 players, following by 9-hole medal matches. The field is weak and the ranking points are minimal for Europe. Pieters is at No. 60 and projected to drop, so he likely needs somewhere around 10th to remain in the top 60. Adam Scott is playing in Dallas, and at No. 65 in the world, a ranking specialist who goes by Nosferatu on Twitter estimates the Australian would need a two-way tie for ninth to reach the projected No. 60. That could change depending on how others fare. Scott has not missed a major since 2001. He was entered in U.S. Open qualifying that year, but withdrew. The good news: The U.S. Open is reserving spots for anyone who cracks the top 60 the week before the championship. SKEDContinued From 1B B2

LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS WEDNESDAY, MAY 16, 2018 3B DEAR ABBY: Due to some unfortunate family circumstances, I was devastated to discover that nearly all of my boxes of cherished recipes had been destroyed. Im now starting over from scratch to collect special recipes I can pass down to my children. Most of my family members have died, so they can no longer be a resource for the traditional dishes I grew up with. I saw a post online a while back about a cookbooklet set you were offering. Is it still available, and how much does it cost? It would mean a lot to me to be able to share some of your favorite recipes with my kids and younger relatives. -LORIE IN ENCINO, CALIF. DEAR LORIE: Having been a compulsive recipe collector for many years, I can imagine how frustrating it was to discover your recipes were gone. I hope my recipe booklets will start you on your way to rebuilding your collection. Many readers have written to tell me that my recipes are great for entertaining and actually save calories when they are divided among a greater number of guests. The Raw Apple Cake serves 16. (Remember, An apple a day keeps the doctor away.) Think of the fiber! The Pecan Pie has taken blue ribbons in county fairs. Others were featured on the covers of womens magazines. My cookbooklet set contains more than 100 tasty recipes for soups, salads, appetizers, main courses and desserts that can be used when friends and family get together to celebrate holidays and special occasions. Once you start reviewing Cookbooklet II, you will see that a sweet tooth runs in my family. The cookbooklets are sold as a set and can be ordered by sending your name and address, plus check or money order for $14 (U.S. funds) to: Dear Abby -Cookbooklet Set, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. I hope you will enjoy all the recipes because dinner guests, family members -as well as other readers -have raved about them. They have even been used as the basis for Dear Abby-themed dinner parties. (The place cards were decorated with hearts and flowers, and the centerpiece was a bouquet of envelopes addressed to me.) Included in this collection are tips on entertaining for those who are inexperienced or nervous about it. Remember, although what you put on the table is important, its who you put in the chairs that makes a great party. DEAR ABBY: What do you do if your friends have graciously given you several nights free at a lovely beach hotel, but your room faces a huge wall covered by a black tarp -a construction site? Weve been told that no other rooms are available. -ROOM WITH NO VIEW DEAR ROOM: Because other accommodations arent available, you graciously accept that you wont be looking out at the moonlit water. Then do your best to enjoy your FREE holiday, spending as much time on the sunlit beach as you can. (Dont forget to use sunscreen!)

You know, a guy theyd show you on TV has got about a 4-footer to win $800,000. If he misses hes going to get $500,000. I said, You should have played when I played, when youd have that length of putt for $100 to get to the next town. Thats pressure. Ford won the 1955 PGA Championship by beating Cary Middlecoff, and then won the Masters in 1957 with a stirring comeback. He trailed Sam Snead by three shots going into the final round and closed with a 66 for a three-shot victory. Ford holed out from a plugged lie in the bunker on the 18th, though he always thought the par-5 15th was the key moment. Leading Snead by one shot, Ford went for the green with a 3-wood, even though he hit the same shot in the water the previous round. His caddie insisted he lay up with a 4-iron. This time it stayed on the green for a crucial birdie. In an era when giants of the game were building the PGA Tour, Doug achieved remarkable success and never lost his unmatched love of the game, PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan said. All of us owe a debt of gratitude to this great player. Beyond his 19 tour wins, Ford was instrumental when the PGA Tour broke away from the PGA of America in 1968. Ford was on the players committee with Gardner Dickinson, Frank Beard and Jack Nicklaus when the players sought more control of tournament affairs. Doug was a tower of strength when we broke away from the PGA of America, and we owe Doug thanks for that, Bob Goalby said when he introduced Ford at the Hall of Fame induction ceremony. He also played on the Senior Tour when it began in 1980, twice winning a division for older players at the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf. Doug Ford was a true pioneer in our sport and tour, two-time U.S. Open Curtis Strange said on Twitter. A huge part of the creation of the tour as we know it today, as well as the Champions Tour. Ford was born Aug. 6, 1922, in West Haven, Connecticut. He always wanted to play for the New York Yankees, and had a chance to join their farm system in South Carolina for $30 a week. My dad said to me, How long will you last playing baseball? I said, Maybe 10 years, Ford said during his induction. He said, Why dont you stay with the golf? Youll last forever. Thats right. FORDContinued From 1BCOURTESYDoug Ford won the 1955 PGA Championship. was revealed publicly and they were all sequestered until the results were aired. Its part of a big week already for the Suns, who introduced Igor Kokoskov as their new coach Monday and now will have the chance to pick No. 1. Arizona freshman Deandre Ayton is widely expected to be a strong candidate to go No. 1, and since he was at the lottery he now has a sense for how his immediate future might play out. Dukes Marvin Bagley III was also in attendance, as was Oklahomas dynamic Trae Young and several of the other likely top picks. Most will be participating in the draft combine, also happening in Chicago this week. Ayton declined an invitation to be involved with those workouts. Ayton will have obvious local appeal to the Suns, as would Bagley an Arizona native. Sacramento had a 18.3 percent chance of moving into the top three, while Atlantas move-up was really just a slightly bigger upset than a coin-flip the Hawks came into the night with a 42.3 percent chance of getting picks 1, 2 or 3. The lottery has been around since 1985, was tweaked to a weighted system in 1990 and will be changing again next year in an effort to discourage teams from tanking. Going forward, the three teams with the worst regular-season records will all have 14 percent chances of winning the No. 1 pick, the fourth-worst team will have a 12.5 percent chance and the fifth-worst 10.5 percent. So there will still be a benefit to being bad, but the odds will be so similar among the bottom five teams a 3.5 percent differential in the race for No. 1, instead of the 16.2 percent gap like this year that the reward for losing might be lessened. DRAFTContinued From 1B ERIC JACKSON/Lake City ReporterColumbias offensive line gets into position during Tuesdays practice at CHS. and provide much-needed leadership in the trenches. Its definitely something to get used to, Bedenbaugh said. We got to communicate more with the loss of Scott and Jevon..Just getting on the same page. The (new guys) always been around, weve known them since middle school and all. The chemistry has always been there now that theyre actually playing with us, we just got to communicate more. The Tigers dissected film for hours this week, reviewing the good and bad from the Purple and Gold game last Friday. Columbia head coach Brian Allen says theres several areas to be improved moving forward, including the offensive lines play. We still have room to get better, thats the biggest thing, with our expectation level being where we want it, Allen said. Especially up front offensively, it has to be better. That was the biggest thing just slowing things down and watching film. I think the players got the message (afterward), I could tell immediately there was improvement. With a smoother practice this week, Columbias front-five slowly is turning into a formidable force, with still a couple months until the season opener. The Tigers are using every opportunity before then to polish and become more sound. Allen says hes already noticed the progression in the three weeks or so with the new group. I think the learning of scheme, especially for the new guys, has been better, Allen added. Im always telling them, theres two things you can control: your effort and your attitude. At the end of the day, we have players with plenty enough skill to be dominant, but the effort has to be thereThats the biggest thing I want to see coming out of this (next) game that I didnt see as much as I needed to last week. After an up-and-down performance during last weeks intra-scrimmage, the big boys are poised for their first true battle together in this Fridays spring game. Columbias offensive line unit continues to show flashes of what can be, becoming more stout with every passing day under the leadership of Bedenbaugh and Lewis. We had a bad week last week, but this week, are mentality is game week, Lewis added. So we got to go get after it as leaders me and him.
