T he bridge sits over Rose Creek, which drains into the Ichetucknee River basin.BY STEVE WILSONswilson@lakecityreporter.comAs of Wednesday afternoon, the Columbia County Road Department has made a decision to act on the repair and upkeep of a 42-year-old county bridge. Located on High Falls Road, about 2,500 feet south of County Road 252, Assistant County Manager Kevin Kirby said the bridge in question has been declared structurally unsound. We took a look at it yesterday and decided we could not wait any longer, Kirby said of repairs on the bridge, which was first built in 1971. Columbia County, in conjunction with the Florida Dept. of Transportation, monitors bridges in the county, with FDOT making recommendations regarding repair and other maintenance efforts. In the case of this bridge, Kirby said he and his staff will be meeting at the bridge site today to assess the situation. The range of repair costs for the bridge is from $200,000, which would be the bare minimum needed, to $800,000, which would be the cost to completely replace it. Thats a large window, Kirby said. After inspecting the bridge, Kirby said the next step would be to approach the county board for funding, then begin the repair process. Its a big inconvenience to the people in the area, he said. Only the bridge, and not the rest of High Falls Road, is closed. Kirby added that detour signs have already been set up in the area. Were immediately on it, he said.

David Moran, a former sergeant at the Florida Department of Corrections Reception and Medical Center at Lake Butler, was convicted in a plot to kill a black former inmate who had bitten another officer. Moran and another correctional officer, along with a former officer involved in the plot Thomas Jordan Driver of Lake City and Charles Thomas Newcomb of Keystone were members of the Ku Klux Klan, according to Tuesdays ruling by Administrative Law Judge Hetal Desai. The men were arrested after enlisting an FBI informant to help kill the former inmate, who bit Driver during a prison fight, according to court papers. The conspirators believed the inmate to have a blood disease, they said, but the hitman they contacted in 2015 was actually working for the FBI. Moran was sentenced to 12 years in prison. The State Board of Administration, which operates the retirement system, informed Moran in 2017 that he had forfeited his benefits because of the conviction. Moran sought an administrative hearing, contending in part that the conspiracy was not related to or associated with his employment at DOC, but rather related to his activity in the Traditional American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) and, therefore, did not amount to a violation of the public trust, Desai wrote. But the administrative law judge, in a 24-page recommended order Tuesday, rejected Morans arguments and said he should lose the benefits. As stated previously, there is no dispute petitioner conspired with another DOC employee and a former DOC employee to plan the murder of a former inmate, Desai wrote. There was no evidence that petitioner would have come into contact with the victim inmate through any other means other than his role as a DOC sergeant. In other words, but for the knowledge, relationships and privileges of his position, petitioner would not have been involved in the conspiracy to kill Mr. Williams (the intended victim). Under administrative law, Desais recommended order will go back to the State Board of Administration for final action. Moran would lose benefits in his 401(k)-style investment plan account, though the state would return contributions he made to the account. The News Service of Florida contributed to this report. Recommendation goes back to state board for last word. Moran not unique in one particular sport, Rosner said. Its typically good to have a large concentration of flat fields to accommodate travel tournaments and things of that nature. Paula Vann, TDC executive director, said the agency decided to look at adding a flat field complex after a meeting with Huddle-Up, a consulting group. Huddle Up representatives met with county officials to develop a plan in aiding the county moving forward with sport events and expanding baseball, softball and other sports opportunities. One of the other opportunities they mentioned was a flat field facility just because of their popularity nationwide and in the region, she said. They said we needed to dive a little bit deeper into it as far as the costs and feasibility of it and thats where were at. The feasibility study will focus on the economic impact of a flat field complex, the costs to construct the facility, the long-term costs of operating the facility and also identify potential locales for the facility. We have the soccer complex right now, but how many more fields do we actually need to be a full-fledged tournament center for flat fields that can accommodate soccer, lacrosse, football, rugby and other things? Vann asked. The TDC committee looking into the possibility of adding a local flat field complex does not have any idea how many acres it would take to house the facility, nor how many fields the facility will encompass. Thats why we want to bring them in to give us an idea of whats rational for our area right now or do we need start small and also thing about long term what we can add-on every couple of years, Vann said. There are different ideas of whats needed for a facility like that. Some (studies) say six fields, some say 12 fields, but we have to see whats our needs and were we fit here. Were relying on them to give us an idea about that. While a new flat field complex will not be an expansion of the Southside Sports Complex, it will have the same premise as the current recreational facilities. Specifically, we want something to bring in more tourists and more people into our area, Vann said. TDCContinued From 1ASCSO: Burglary run ends in credit card fraud chargesBy COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comA burglary run turned sour after an Alabama woman tried to use a Live Oak womans stolen credit cards at a local retail store, a Suwannee County Sheriffs report said. The woman was arrested by a sheriffs office investigator on an evening shopping trip she attempted to pay for items with stolen credit cards, sheriffs report said. She said the cards were given to her by a friend who drove across Suwannee County and stopped on its westside to break into vehicles, according to the report. Angela Gale Mooney, 46, was picked up by Suwannee County Sheriffs investigators after shopping at the local Walmart Tuesday with a 21-year-old Live Oak womans credit cards, which were declined. She said she was given the stolen credit cards by the friend after their drive, according to SCSO probable cause affidavit details. During the May 9 nighttime drive, she said the man driving the vehicle, who she said was a friend, made multiple stops committing a series of vehicular burglaries. The burglaries happened on the west side of the county around State Route 51, the report said. Mooney had an Alabama identification, but a Live Oak address at NW Hillman Ave was listed on the report. According to her testimony, reportedly taken after she was read her rights, she waited in the car while the man got the loot. Defendant Mooney stated (the man) returned with a stolen wallet and gave her the stolen credit cards. Defendant Mooney stated she took the stolen cards and attempted to use them at Walmart during two separate transactions, the report said. She was reportedly arrested Tuesday at the store around 6 p.m. and charged with two theft related counts of dealing in stolen property and fraudulent use of credit cards. Mooney to view that day, with pieces dating back centuries. The novelty of the hobby is that there is so many categories and there are so many different kinds or colors and there are some priced low and there are some priced high, said Hoblick. People participate where they can in the hobby its something there for everyone. Now 57, Hoblick said hes been in the bottle business for going on five decades. At 10 years old I dug up my first old bottle and its just never faded, Ive stayed with it for 47 years. I dig em up, buy em sale em, trade em, he said. In his late twenties he said his collection became unwieldy and it was time to profit from the hobby. I started dealing in old bottles then instead of collecting, when you have so many you have to do something, Hoblick said. He said he moved to Lake City about six years ago and gauged the area for demand. He said he soon found there was a great demand, and the convergence nearby of two main interstates was a contributing factor. Dealers come from as far away as Key Largo and North Georgia with their antiques, he said. The show runs at the fairgrounds, starting at 8 a.m. and ending at 3 p.m. He said the bottles on display will range in color, size, shape and are unique to their historic purpose and manufacturer. Other antique items and collectibles will be displayed and sold at the show as well, such as knives, photographs, nautical and military collectibles and stamps. Its my contribution to hopefully provide continuation of the hobby and further interest in the hobby, Hoblick said. Because we need that so it doesnt disappear. BOTTLESContinued From 1A

THIS PRODUCT IS NOT INTENDED TO DIAGNOSE, TREAT, CURE OR PREVENT ANY DISEASE. RESULTS NOT TYPICAL. A New Sex Pill Takes the Spotlight as the Viagra Patent is About to ExpireA patented pill costing less than $1 a dose stands to help millions of men with failing sex lives; no prescription will be requiredBy Ray Wilson Associated Health Press AHP A new sex pill is set to take the spotlight with the Viagra patent about to expire. But unlike the former, it wont require a prescription and is priced just under a $1 a dose. The new pill called Vesele is part of a new class of performance enhancers for men, which work instantaneously on the body and mind triggering arousal and rmer, harder erections. Formulated with a special compound known as an accelerator, Vesele can transport its active ingredients faster and more efciently into the blood stream, where it begins to work its magic. The patented ingredient blend initiates a process known as vasodilation, which causes arteries and vessels throughout the body to expand. This allows blood to ow directly to penis and genitals, resulting in harder erections which last longer. Cialis and Viagra are based around a simlilar concept. But what makes Vesele so remarkable, and what these other sex pills cant do, is that also directs a small portion of this blood ow to the brain, which creates feelings of intense arousal. In laymens terms, users become incredibly excited and turned on. This is why the makers of Vesele say their pill has worked so effectively in clinical trials. It stimulates the two most important organs for great sex, the penis and the brain.The Brain Erection ConnectionUntil now, medical researchers did not fully understand the brainerection connection. It has now been made clear with Vesele. When both are supplied with a constant blood ow, men are harder and rmer for longer...and have unbelievable sex drives. Most of the research and treatment methods for mens sexual failures have focused on physiological factors and have neglected the emotional ones. For the leading sex drugs to work, like Cialis and Viagra, you need visual stimulation explains Dr. Henry Esber, the creator of Vesele. And although they work for some men, the majority experience absolutely no fulllment during sex. According to research published by the National Institute of Health, 50% of men taking these drugs stop responding or cant tolerate their side effects... and on top of that they spend $50 per pill and it doesnt even work half the time. This is what makes Vesele so different and effective. It oods the blood stream with key ingredients which cause arteries all over the body to expand. The patented accelerator speeds up this process even more. The result is a rush of blood ow to the penis and brain, helping to create an impressive erection and a surging desire for sex. Often, this is all men need to get going. And when taken regularly, many men say they are energized and aroused all day.Great Sex At Any AgeWith the conclusion of their latest human clinical use survey trial, Dr. Esber and his team are now offering Vesele in the US. And regardless of the market, its sales are exploding. Men across the country are eager to get their hands on the new pill and according to the research, they should be. In the trial above, as compared to baseline, men taking Vesele saw a staggering 85% improvement in erection hardness over a fourmonth period. Their erections also lasted twice as long. These same men also experienced an astounding 82% increase in the desire for sex (libido/sex drive) and an even greater improvement in overall satisfaction and ability to satisfy their partners. Many men taking Vesele described feeling horny and aroused through the day. The anticipation before sex was amazing. They were also easily turned on. Their moods were more upbeat and positive, too.Faster Absorption into the Blood StreamVesele is made up of three specialized ingredients: two clinical strength vasodilators and a patented absorption enhancer often called an accelerator. According to an enormous amount of clinical data, each is very safe. Research shows that with age, many men lose their desire and interest in sex. They also struggle to produce an erection rm enough for penetration. And although there are many theories as to why this happens (including a loss in testosterone) one thing is certain, inadequate blood ow is virtually always to blame. Thats why sex drug manufacturers focus on blood ow, it makes your erection hard. But whats more surprising, and what these manufacturers have failed to consider, is that lack of blood ow can also kill your sex drive. Thats because blood supplies energy for the brain. This energy is required for creating brainwaves that cause excitability and arousal. Studies show the Vesele stimulates the entire cardiovascular system, including the arteries that lead to both the brain and penis. The extreme concentration of the ingredients combined with the accelerator ensures that this process starts quickly. The sexual benets of Vesele are also multiplied as its ingredients build up in the system over time. This is why many men take it every single day. Recent Studies Show Positive Effects on Women In the same study referenced throughout, Vesele was also shown to have an amazing (and somewhat surprising) effect on women too. Thats because the same arteries and vessels that carry blood and oxygen to the brain and genitals are the same in men and women. In our most recent study, women taking Vesele saw a stunning 52% improvement in arousal and sex drive. Perhaps more impressive, they also experienced a 57% improvement in lubrication. You can imagine why some couples are taking Vesele together. Everything feels better. Everything works better. Everyone performs better. Its truly amazing. A New Frontier of Non-Prescription Sex PillsWith daily use, Vesele is helping men (and women) restore failing sex lives and overcome sexual lets downs without side effect or expense. Through a patented absorption enhancer, the Vesele formula hits the bloodstream quickly, resulting in phenomenal improvements in erection rmness and hardness. By boosting blood ow to the brain, users also experience sexual urges and arousal they often havent felt in years. Where to Find Vesele This is the ofcial release of Vesele in Florida.

OBITUARIES Water reuse helps meet water supply demandFrom a SRWMD press release LIVE OAK As Floridas population continues to increase, so does its need for water. Within the Suwannee Valley, the demand for water is expected to increase by 70 million gallons of water per day by 2035. Florida manages water supply demands through the implementation of planning and projects that reduce and reuse water. To bring awareness to the importance of water reuse projects, the Suwannee River Water Management District (District), in partnership with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and other water management districts, is celebrating the week of May 13 as Water Reuse Week. Water reuse is the practice of using reclaimed water (storm runoff or wastewater), instead of fresh groundwater or surface water such as rivers, lakes or streams, to meet a water supply demand. It reduces demands on valuable surface and ground waters used for drinking water sources, eliminates discharges that may pollute valuable surface waters and recharges ground water resources. Working with our local communities and stakeholders is essential to identifying innovative opportunities for water reuse, said Hugh Thomas, executive director for the District. Where ever we can save groundwater and surface water use we should. Conservation is not optional if we want to ensure water is available for nature and for future generations. Since 2005, the District has received over $21 million for reuse projects and partnered with the cities of Lake City, Live Oak, Monticello and Alachua to provide funding assistance for established reclaimed water programs for their local utilities. Through the funding, these communities created reuse water for residential and commercial irrigation, golf course irrigation, industrial machinery cooling, roadway maintenance and more. Reuse is an integral part of meeting the states existing and future water supply needs while sustaining natural systems. The District, along with its state partners, continue to work together to enhance coordination, consistency and efficiencies of reclaimed water projects. The mission of the District is to protect and manage water resources using science-based solutions to support natural systems and the needs of the public. The District holds true to the belief of water for nature, water for people. Headquartered in Live Oak, Florida, the District serves 15 surrounding north-central Florida counties.

Six months out from the first crucial midterm elections of this presidency, both political parties are divided and floundering for coherent messages, leaving the national stage to the reality-TV episodes of a White House occupied by Donald Trump, whos on not one single ballot. Midterm elections, especially the first of any president, are always initial verdicts on the Oval Office occupant. And with few exceptions (George W. Bush in the uncertain aftermath of 9/11), those voter verdicts are negative. In 16 of the 18 postwar midterm elections, the presidents party has lost House seats. By historys patterns and, until recently, preference polling, Democrats should be able to retake the 23 House seats necessary to end GOP domination of Congress. That would stymie Trumps agenda and set up a rancorous two-year run-up to 2020, including embarrassing committee investigations, even greater obstruction and possibly impeachment proceedings. Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi seems confident of regaining the giant ceremonial gavel. We will win, she says. I will run for speaker. I feel confident about it. And my members do, too. But wait! Theres more. In our system of government both parties are supposed to be checks on the other, competing through innovations, legislative accomplishments, new ideas and articulate leaders. Right now, not only is neither party doing that, each one is riven with ideological fractures, preventing cohesive political progress. Despite joyful hour-by-hour media coverage of the mudslinging fracas and dueling photo-ops, this isnt mere political entertainment. Without two vibrant parties presenting voters with fresh choices, our democracy wallows into stagnant gridlock, fueling frustrations, divisions and growing doubts about the ability of Washington to function, let alone succeed. Recall, that was the precise goal of all that alleged Russian meddling. Both parties are at fault. Take Democrats, please. Thirty years San Francisco voters have sent Nancy Pelosi to Capitol Hill, where she became the first female speaker. An assiduous fundraiser, Pelosi runs her House caucus with a tight fist and two aged aides. Shes 78 herself and in several recent public remarks clearly lost her train of thought. So much so that she handed GOP campaigns a gilded gift the other day by promising that her Democrats would raise taxes. The House alone cant do that, of course, especially with a GOP president who recently signed tax cuts. But come fall, watch for that clip on your TV screen over and over and over. And over. Pelosi sits atop simmering discontent in her caucus as ambitious younger members angle for more progressive stands, more individual influence and a greater shot at leadership positions. Despite presiding over four straight losing House elections, she fended off a challenger in 2016s leadership election. She might not this time, especially as impatient new members arrive lacking respect for traditional seniority rules. Even a recently-arrived Martian knows that Pelosis party hates Trump, everything he does and everything he stands for, when you can discern what that is. Beyond Trump and new taxes, what else do Democrats propose as a winning midterm message? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? In a sign of todays hyper-partisan times, some concerned progressives are organizing focus groups and polling to detect, not new policy points, but the most potent attack lines against those deplorable congressional Republicans. About time, because recent public polling shows that last falls double-digit Democrat lead on the generic which-partywould-you-support-for-Congress ballot has shrunk to one or two points. Same with the voter enthusiasm gap where anti-Trump sentiment fueled a 12-point Democrat lead over Republicans in February. Now, its six. This has yet to curb bountiful media talk about a November blue wave, however. Trumps job approval has climbed out of the thirties to the mid-forties. Hes still underwater but benefiting from a loyal base, a growing economy, low unemployment, tax cuts, booming stock markets and apparently more people becoming accustomed to, if not attracted by, his outrageous comments. His highwire foreign policy moves on North Korea and Iran have not hurt yet. Senate Republicans are defending only eight seats to Democrats 26. They have but a one-seat majority often stalled by arcane supermajority rules and obstruction tactics. Democrats, for instance, have forced 30 hours of confirmation debate per Trump nominee. House Republicans often stall themselves with ideological rifts and, frankly, puzzlement over an erratic Republican president who isnt really a Republican. With his tweets and seemingly off-the-cuff remarks, Trump effectively controls Washingtons media agenda, which is great for a presidential ego. But it redirects coverage back to the ominous special counsels corruption investigation. And it drowns out much of the good economic news and tax-cut drumbeat that could allay anticipated midterm damages. Also threatening is the exodus of more than 40 incumbent Republican members, opening seats for potential Democratic gains. Among those leaving is Speaker Paul Ryan. After 10 terms, hes retiring at age 48 another revealing indication of the personal toll our contemporary federal politics takes.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINIONKids Day is for allThe Kiwanis Clubs annual Kids Day, set for Saturday at the fairgrounds, is a hoot and then some, and not just for kids. Adults can be seen having a good time there year in, year out. Heres the kicker. Youre not just spending quality time with your child. Youre helping other children. Kids Day benefits local backpack programs that ensure poor kids have something to eat on weekends and holidays. And heres the real kicker. If you go, youll be setting an example for your child, who will see that Christian charity isnt all talk. But mostly you and your kids will just have a blast, with all the Kids Day favorites making their return: Touch-a-truck, water slides, a petting zoo, bounce houses, games, reptiles and more. Sound good? Hope to see you there. Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY On this date: In 1875, the first Kentucky Derby was run; the winner was Aristides, ridden by Oliver Lewis. In 1937, Teddy Hill and His Orchestra recorded King Porter Stomp for RCA Victors Bluebird label in New York; making his recording debut was trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie. In 1954, a unanimous U.S. Supreme Court handed down its Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka decision which held that racially segregated public schools were inherently unequal, and therefore unconstitutional. In 1957, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his first national speech, titled Give Us the Ballot, during the Prayer Pilgrimage for Freedom in Washington, D.C. In 1961, Cuban leader Fidel Castro offered to release prisoners captured in the Bay of Pigs invasion in exchange for 500 bulldozers. (The prisoners were eventually freed in exchange for medical supplies.) In 1973, a special committee convened by the U.S. Senate began its televised hearings into the Watergate scandal. In 1977, the Chuck E. Cheeses fast food and family entertainment chain had its start as the first Chuck E. Cheeses Pizza Time Theatre opened in San Jose, California. In 1980, rioting that claimed 18 lives erupted in Miamis Liberty City after an all-white jury in Tampa acquitted four former Miami police officers of fatally beating black insurance executive Arthur McDuffie. In 1987, 37 American sailors were killed when an Iraqi warplane attacked the U.S. Navy frigate Stark in the Persian Gulf. (Iraq apologized for the attack, calling it a mistake, and paid more than $27 million in compensation.) LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Here come the midtermsTo the Editor: Do you want your child to know their letters and sounds prior to kindergarten? How about identifying colors and shapes? Or the possibility of learning how to read? As a provider of early childhood education for over 20 years, I have seen the profound effect of a proper VPK program on a pre-kindergartener. Research shows that children who are enrolled in a pre-kindergarten program often: behaved had higher IQ scores upon enrolling kindergarten than their peers without formal education improved social skills had no need for special education instruction during subsequent school years had better grades had enhanced attention spans Most VPK programs are only 3 hours a day, so you are still able to spend time with your little one. Children benefit from structure outside of the home, along with gaining the social aspect needed to be successful in school. What greater gift is there to give your child than a proper education? I encourage all parents to enroll their child in daycare or school that provides early childhood education. You will be amazed at what your little one can learn in a short amount of time.

As usual the kids were extremely well behaved and eager to hear what the guest speaker, Frank Armijo, Columbia County Fire Chief, had to say. Mr. Armijo came in full of excitement and expressed the importance of leadership and a strong work ethic. Many kids inquired about the requirements needed to work in the fire department. The kids were fascinated with how much the communication lines have changed within the last 10-15 years. Mr. Armijo told the kids that when he started in the fire department each house in the county had a route address and a chalkboard was used in each firetruck to help with directions. Today of course, we have the use of technology. We appreciate Mr. Armijo taking time out of his busy schedule to come and speak to us.

By JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comOne Columbia receiver has 32 offers. Another has nine and is on his way to plenty more. Bobby Fulton? Well, hes still looking for numero uno. But the rising senior isnt worried, instead patient for his opportunity when it comes his way. Fulton most recently shined at the teams Purple & Gold game on Friday, catching four balls for 139 yards and two touchdowns. Although he hasnt garnered the attention yet from colleges like T.J. Jones and Marquez Bell have, Fulton isnt worried about when his time will come. Hes instead focused on excelling in this Fridays spring game against Bartram Trail and beyond into the 2018 season. Im praying on it. Im not hoping on it or just wishing it will happen but my time will come if its meant for me to happen, Fulton said. (Jones and Bell) earned their spot. They did what they needed to do last year and they got their recognition. They earned everything they got. My time will come if I play well. Jones received offers No. 31 and 32 from Penn State and Marshall last night and is scheduled to visit Florida on Saturday. Bells recruitment, meanwhile, has picked up steam in recent weeks. The rising junior has picked up seven of his nine offers in just the month of May, with Pittsburgh and Penn State offering the receiver Tuesday night. Fulton starts alongside the duo this year, replacing Jamille Bullock on the depth chart. Buried in the rotation as a junior, Fulton only caught three passes for 32 yards and a touchdown. Jones and Bell? They combined for 63 receptions for 1,500 yards and 13 scores. But ask those around the Tigers By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comIn two short years, hes gone from third-string quarterback to starting signal-caller, and hes earned his ascension through hard work, commitment and dedication. Jordan Smith is poised for the full-time starting job with incumbent quarterback Dylan Blair expected to transfer this fall. The rising junior is primed for another fine season after splitting QB duties during his breakout sophomore campaign. Hes excited about taking the field not as a mere role player, but as a team leader. For me, I feel like God is trying to show me a sign, Smith said of larger role. I just got to take this opportunity and run with it. I got to put the team on my back and lead them. I got to be a good leader, be more vocal and take charge of the offense. Smith, who already has offers from Tennessee (Chattanooga), Georgia Southern and FAMU, helped the Tigers last season to several big wins including a 24-14 victory over powerhouse Trinity Christian Academy. Smith orchestrated the offense solo in the upset win with Blair out (concussion), commanding the unit to a strong outing in his first career start. With a star-studded group of receivers back this year, Smith and the Tigers look forward to putting on another great show for Columbia fans. T.J., Quez, Bob, Butter, Nadrick we got a good receiver group, he said. We got a really good wide receiver group. I just got to make sure were on the same page. No mess ups, I mean were going to have mistakes every now and then but we just have to capitalize on (opportunities) and keep communicating with each other. Smith admits the two-person quarterback system was frustrating at times last year, yet remained patient, hoping his time would come and it has.

The 2015 NBA Coach of the Year will replace Joe Prunty, the former assistant who went 21-16 in the regular season after replacing the fired Jason Kidd in late January. The person confirmed the agreement with the former Atlanta Hawks coach on Wednesday. The person requested ano nymity because the team has not made an official announcement. The deal was first reported by ESPN. Budenholzer went 213-197 in five seasons with the Hawks, leading them to a franchise-record 60 wins and the Eastern Conference finals in 2015. He and the Hawks mutually agreed to part ways last month with two years remaining on his contract, allowing Budenholzer to pursue other opportunities.MLBAMERICAN LEAGUE East Division W L Pct GB New York 28 12 .700 Boston 29 14 .674 Toronto 22 21 .512 7 T ampa Bay 19 22 .463 9 Baltimore 13 29 .310 16 C entral Division W L Pct GB Cleveland 21 21 .500 Minnesota 18 21 .462 1 Detroit 19 23 .452 2 K ansas City 13 30 .302 8 Chicago 10 29 .256 9 W est Division W L Pct GB Houston 27 17 .614 L os Angeles 25 17 .595 1 Seattle 24 18 .571 2 Oakland 21 22 .488 5 Texas 17 27 .386 10 NA TIONAL LEAGUE East Division W L Pct GB Atlanta 26 16 .619 Philadelphia 24 16 .600 1 Washington 24 18 .571 2 New York 20 19 .513 4 Miami 16 26 .381 10 C entral Division W L Pct GB Pittsburgh 25 17 .595 Milwaukee 26 18 .591 S t.

Starlin Castro tied a career high with four hits to hike his batting average to .300.NHL PLAYOFFSHome-ice disadvantage for CapitalsBy HOWARD FENDRICHAssociated PressWASHINGTON The good news for Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals is they still lead their Eastern Conference final against the Tampa Bay Lightning. The bad news for the Capitals, counterintuitive as it may be: They host Game 4. So far, Washington is 7-1 in away games this postseason, closing out each of its first two series on the road. Heading into Thursday night, the Capitals are only 3-4 in their arena. The latest setback was a 4-2 loss to the Lightning on Tuesday, after victories at Tampa Bay by a combined score of 10-4 in the finals opening two games. Ovechkin simply shrugged when asked about that discrepancy. We dont think about it, the three-time NHL MVP said. We just play our game. Others were less dismissive. We can take a few things that weve done on the road and put it into our home game, goalie Braden Holtby said. Just a little simpler. Simpler play. Just a kind of, like, more gritty style. Asked what his club could do to fare better at home, Capitals coach Barry Trotz said: Just play the way we do on the road. Were invested there. Were playing with real good focus. I didnt think we were as focused as we have been normally on the road. So just pretend youre on the road. All the buildings are pretty well the same these days. Trotz notices a difference in his players attitude on home ice, saying: Its us against the world when were on the road. There is a league-wide trend here: Road teams are 38-34 in these playoffs. So much for any sup posed home-ice advantage, right? For whatever reason, at this time of the year there are more distractions than in the regular season, for sure. A lot of people have friends and family coming down and ticket requests. Sometimes theres that little added pressure of playing at home and wanting to obviously do good things in front of your fans, Lightning forward Steven Stamkos said. Theres something to be said, too, (for) winning games on the road, when you can just kind of hear a pin drop in the crowd, sometimes, which is always a good thing. Holtby agreed. Its easier to play on the road. Its always that way on the road. Any team would say that, he said. Because youre not focused on the excitement of your fans and all that. They bring you energy in good ways, but at the same time, you need to stay realistic and play your game. During the regular season, Washington was a strong home team, playing in front of loud, red-wearing sellout crowds in every game. Only five teams in the 31-club NHL had more victories at home than Washingtons 28 and that total represents seven more wins than the Capitals managed on the road. So what is going on in the playoffs? I dont really have an explanation for it, to be honest with you, defen seman Brooks Orpik said. I know when we go on the road, I think maybe we feel a bit more relaxed, and when we do make mistakes, maybe we dont let the groaning affect us or whatnot. I mean, that being said, I think we should be probably mentally stronger to not let that affect us. Just got to try to find a way to win the next one at home, for sure. NOTES: Injured Capitals C Nicklas Backstrom, who has missed the last four games with an injured right hand, took part in the teams optional skate Wednesday. But Trotz wouldnt give any hint as to when Backstrom might return. When Nickys ready to go, hes ready to go, Trotz said. You miss him in every way shape or form. ... Washington re-signed D Aaron Ness to a one-year, two-way contract worth $650,000 if hes in the NHL, $425,000 in the minors. Ness had one assist in eight games for the Capitals this season.DOUGLAS R. CLIFFORD/Tampa Bay TimesTampa Bay Lightning center Cedric Paquette (13) and Washington Capitals center Jay Beagle (83) get in a fight during the second period of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Sunday in Tampa.

LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, MAY 17, 2018 3B DEAR ABBY: I am a working mother of three who may be battling postpartum depression. I feel like I am parenting alone. I get the kids out of the house by myself in the morning before my husband even drags himself out of bed. I drop the kids off. I go to work. I teach, so my day is spent dealing with other peoples kids, and then I pick my own kids up. I have no time to decompress or devote to myself. When there are school functions, my husband makes me feel guilty that Im not spending time with the kids. Now hes starting to make me feel guilty because the kids like him less than they do me. How do I get across to him that if he did more and was around them more, they would like him more? Im so tired from juggling all these balls. I feel like if something were to happen to me, hed have no clue what to do. How can I fix this situation? I dont want to resent him, but Im starting to. -EXHAUSTED, HOT MESS MOM DEAR MOM: Postpartum depression is more than being tired and overscheduled. Its a medical condition that, left untreated, can have serious consequences. It might help to discuss whats going on with your physician, who can then help you explain to your husband that if he doesnt step up, he could indeed be left with the sole responsibility of taking care of the children. Youre right. You shouldnt be carrying the whole load, and the bonus would be the likelihood that your husbands relationship with the children would improve. DEAR ABBY: I have two daughters, and we dont always see eye to eye. I think one of them is emotionally abusive because she is so critical about everything having to do with me. The problem is I have wonderful grandkids who are very young. I would love to see them grow up, but Im able to see them only perhaps 24 days out of the year. I feel lonely knowing my daughter and her husband are so close yet so far because theyre too busy with their lives to let me interact with my grandchildren. I do have my own things to do and I am active, but I would love a change of scenery after two marriages. I would love to visit new places and make new friends and build a new life for myself. But I wonder if it would be abandoning my grandchildren. I could still visit them two to three times a year from wherever I end up. I have sacrificed all my life doing the right things by putting others first, and Im afraid that if I dont travel now or live somewhere else, I may not be well enough later on. What do you think is a good solution for me? -AT A CROSSROADS IN MINNESOTA DEAR AT A CROSSROADS: I agree you should move. Absence may make the heart grow fonder, but if it doesnt, at least you will have a chance to live your dream. Take it while youre young enough to enjoy it, and video chat with the grandkids.

Michigan State University agreed to pay $500 million to settle claims from more than 300 women and girls who said they were assaulted by sports doctor Larry Nassar in the worst sexabuse case in sports history, officials announced Wednesday. The deal surpasses the $100 million-plus paid by Penn State University to settle claims by at least 35 people who accused assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky of sexual abuse, though the Nassar agreement involves far more victims. Michigan State was accused of ignoring or dismissing complaints about Nassar, some as far back as the 1990s. The school had insisted that no one covered up assaults, although Nassars boss was later charged with failing to properly supervise him and committing his own sexual misconduct. We are truly sorry to all the survivors and their families for what they have been through, and we admire the courage it has taken to tell their stories, said Brian Breslin, chairman of Michigan States governing board. We recognize the need for change on our campus and in our community around sexual assault awareness and prevention. It is not clear how much each victim will receive, although the money will not be divided equally. It is also unclear where the money will come from. University spokeswoman Emily Guerrant said school leaders will now work on a way to pay the bill. Rachael Denhollander of Louisville, Kentucky, who in 2016 was the first woman to publicly identify herself as a victim, said the agreement reflects the incredible damage which took place on MSUs campus. But she said she still has not seen any meaningful reform at the university. Nassar treated campus athletes and scores of young gymnasts at his Michigan State office, building an international reputation while working at the same time for USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians. The university and lawyers for 332 victims announced the deal after negotiating privately with the help of a mediator. Under the agreement, $425 million will be paid to current claimants and $75 million will be set aside for any future claims. Lawyers will also be compensated out of the $500 million pool. Nassar, 54, pleaded guilty to molesting women and girls under the guise of treatment and was caught with child pornography. He is serving three prison sentences that will likely keep him locked up for life. More than 250 women and girls gave statements in court when Nassar was sentenced in January and February. Since that time, even more accusers have stepped forward, which accounts for the larger number of people covered by the Michigan State agreement. Nassars assaults were mostly committed in Michigan at his Lansingarea home, campus clin ic and area gyms. But his accusers also said he molested them at a gymnastics-training ranch in Texas and at national and international competitions. Nassars work far away from campus was spelled out in his employment contract with Michigan State. During the sentencing hearings, many accusers described an ultra-competitive gymnastics culture in which authority figures could not be questioned and Nassar was free to abuse young patients year after year. They said they had little choice to see doctors other than Nassar, who was renowned throughout the sport. He counted on his charm and reputation to deflect any questions. He was so brazen that he sometimes molested patients in front of their parents, shielding the young girls with his body or a sheet. His clinic was decorated with signed photos of Olympic stars, bolstering his credentials to star-struck athletes and their families. Olympic gold medalists Jordyn Wieber, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas and McKayla Maroney say they were among Nassars victims. Other cases involved participants in soccer, figure skating, rowing, softball, cheerleading, wrestling, diving, dance, and track and field. This historic settlement came about through the bravery of more than 300 women and girls who had the courage to stand up and refuse to be silenced, said John Manly, the lead attorney for the victims. The scandal rocked Michigan State, leading to the resignation of President Lou Anna Simon on Jan. 24 and athletic director Mark Hollis two days later. The fallout has also pushed out many leaders at the top of competitive gymnastics. The school has about 39,000 undergraduate students. Its general fund budget is $1.36 billion. Roughly $983 million comes from tuition and fees, and $281 million is from the state. The settlement applies only to Michigan State. Lawsuits are still pending against Indianapolis-based USA Gymnastics, the U.S. Olympic Committee and an elite gymnastics club in the Lansing-area. Under the deal, the victims are required to withdraw their support for two bills passed by the state Senate. They would strip an immunity defense in sexual misconduct civil cases if public entities are negligent and waive minors from legal notice requirements in such lawsuits, Manly said. Other measures that would retroactively extend the time limit to sue and expand and strengthen Michigans mandatory reporter law remain alive in the House.

My boy is going to break out this year, Jones said. Hes getting serious in the program so his offers are going to come. Fulton has been extra motivated this spring, not only to make an impact in the passing game, but to bounce back from his setback last spring. An elbow injury sidelined him for most of the 2017 spring season, and although it weighed on the then-sophomore, its been a chip on his shoulder one year later. I didnt get to play last spring so I wanted to come back and make a name for myself, Fulton said. I feel like Im doing pretty good at it right now. Ive got a long way to go right now. Ive just got to keep doing what Im doing. Plenty of college coaches have lined the sidelines to get a look at Jones and Bell. It seems its only a matter of time until one coachs eyes chance a glimpse of Fulton. And then another. And another. Bobby has had an unbelievable spring this year, Columbia coach Brian Allen said. (Friday) wasnt surprising because hes had those days at practice this year. Thats been one of my biggest conversations to colleges that are coming in here, is that they better get their eyes on Bobby Fulton because hes had an unbelievable spring and hes going to have a breakout season.

A two-sport guy who welcomes the pressure, hes earned the confidence of teammates and coaches. Ive been around enough good ones here that have played at high level to know Ive got a good one, Columbia coach Brian Allen said. My biggest thing with Jordan is calming him down. He gets excited, and we have our talks at school, I tell him theres nothing wrong about being nervous or anxious prior to a game. One of my old coaches told me: if you arent nervous or anxious before a game then you arent ready to play You should always have some type of jitters in your stomach. Where he might look at it like, how do I get rid of that?. No, you dont ever want to get rid of that because when you have that little bit of moxie within you, youre a gamer and are going to be ready to play. You want to use that to fuel your fire on Friday nights. Tossing pinpoint passes, moving the chains on the run, Smith dazzled his way to a five-touchdown performance in last weeks scrimmage. A gunslinger who can also rip defenses with his devastating speed Smith is the latest Columbia quarterback with this versatile skill-set since Davin Schuck, who led the 2015 Class 7A state semifinal team. Smith continues to show he has all the tools to duplicate similar success as he distances himself from skittish, wide-eyed quarterback to compete field general. At the end of the day, Jordan Smith isnt a running quarterback, Allen said. I dont want that ever to be confused or misconstrued. Jordan Smith is a quarterback, that has the ability to use his legs when he needs to which took Columbias offense a long way here three years ago. Im not holding the reins back on the kid, he knows he has the green light when he drops back and sees something. He has the green light to use the ability that God has given him, Id be crazy to take that away from him. But at the same time, being a pocket-passer, knowing how to step up in the pocket and deliver strikes within the concepts of what were trying to do in the passing game. Its going to a productive summer, says Smith. Hes slated for more workouts so he can continue to polish his footwork and throwing mechanics. Next month Smith and other Tigers are scheduled to compete in 7v7 tournaments to hopefully build more chemistry as the season fast approaches. The days are counting down and there isnt anyone more excited than Smith, ready to take the stage in the lead role. Im excited to see what happens. I just want the season to go how we planned it to go.
