Will be evaluated by prosecutors physician.By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comTracy Lea Luckey, accused of shooting her husband to death one year ago, will be evaluated by doctors to determine whether she was sane at the time of the incident. In court proceedings Monday, Luckeys attorney, Nathan Marshburn, requested a continuance, which was granted by Judge Leandra Johnson. The next pretrial con ference is scheduled for July 9. The State Attorneys Office is having Dr. Chris Robison evaluate Luckey to render an opinion on her sanity at the time of the shooting. The defense had Luckey evaluated by another doctor. Luckey, 50 at the time of the incident, shot and killed David Wayne Sullivan, 49, last May in their Fort White home in the 500 block of Southwest Bobcat Drive, according to Columbia County Sheriffs Office reports. Luckey was arrested May 20, 2017, then transferred to the state mental hospital on Nov. 3, 2017. She remained there until she was returned to the Columbia County jail March 19.

Cats awaken man in fireBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA Lake City mans life was saved by his cats when they awakened him Sunday morning and he found his apartment on fire. Charles Palmer, 68, woke up because he said his cats were running around the apartment. When he woke up he saw smoke in his building and while trying to flee the burning structure, he was injured. The fire occurred around 8:10 a.m. Sunday at 247 SE Brown Street in a quadplex apartment building. Timothy L. Westberry, Lake City Fire Department assistant fire chief, said Palmers apartment was in the southwest corner of the building and noted when firefighters arrived at the scene, they saw fire and smoke coming from the apartments attic. Palmer told authorities he was burned when he was attempting to get out the apartment. Lake City Police Department reports indicate Palmer suffered burns to his face in the fire and he had soot in his mouth. He was transported by rescue (unit) and I believe then he was flown to the Shands Burn Center, Westberry said, noting he did not know how serious Palmers injuries were. Westberry said he was told Palmer had five cats in the apartment and one of the cats perished in the blaze, while another was taken to the animal shelter. Authorities, who were unable to find the other cats, believe the other three felines ran away from the building. The apartment building, which is approximately 2,000 square feet, had fire damage to roughly 500-700 square feet of the building, Westberry said. My guys did a great job containing the fire pretty much to the room where the fire started and the buildings attic, he said. They got it knocked down pretty quick. The fire was contained to the living room in Palmers apartment and a portion of the kitchen. It didnt do any damage to any of the other apartments as far as fire, but we had the power and gas shut-off due to the possible fire hazards, Westberry said. The other tenants will be able to get their power turned back on if they have an electrician check it out. Authorities have not yet determined the cause of the blaze. The fire is still under investigation with the State Fire Marshals Office due to the injury, Westberry said. The Lake City Fire Department responded to the blaze with three units and seven firefighters. The firefighters remained at the scene for approximately two hours and officers from the Lake City Police Department remained on-scene until the fire marshal arrived. said Earl Green. We just had a number one song in Christian country, Come On Back, in April. Theyve played together for over 30 years but have now taken up the mission to provide homeless veterans with backpacks full of essentials wherever they perform. Its called Operation Rucksack. Our main objective is homeless veterans, thats what we do, said Earl Green, vocalist and rhythm guitar player. Thats our whole focus doing what were doing. Green is one of the original MMB members who started the band in 2005 out of a three-decades musical partnership with MMB drummer and vocalist Donny Weatherford. Weatherford said there were veterans at all of their shows, and hearing their stories, especially from WWII veterans, was a highlight. He has been playing professionally since he was 14 and with Green for roughly 36 years. We definitely have strong ties to the military and were very patriotic, said Weatherford. With our program we dont preach politics, we preach patriotism. Along with bass player and multi-instrumentalist Mitch Rogers, of Lake City, and lead and steel guitar player Jerry Guy, of Live Oak, they make up the bands local unit. Another founding member, vocalist and guitar player, Mitch Sands, resides in North Carolina. Over its 13 years running, the band has helped veterans on a case-by-case basis through its nonprofit Mercy Mountain Boys Veterans Assistance, Green said. The impetus to assist veterans through their music came from a song written by Sands called, Soldiers Letter, he said. Its inspiration was a letter written by his son who was stationed overseas on active duty. Operation Rucksack was developed while the band was on a hiatus, and was intended to have a deeper reach than their previous efforts, he said. When we come back it just was on my heart to help the homeless because we read up on it and saw what was going on. And the idea of the rucksack came to mind and we felt the good Lord led us that way to help the homeless, Green said. The homeless veterans, the statistics on them is just unbelievable so we just felt that would be a good area to try to help. And thats where we come up with the rucksack that we could put something in their hands to help them along. Through money raised at their shows, by local business sponsors and individual contributors the bags are filled with ready to eat meals, personal hygiene items, a Bible and pen and notepad. Altogether, Green said it costs about $50 per bag. A lot of them dont want to bring their issues to the family he said. Every chance we get we get out on the streets ourselves. Their music videos and information on Operation Rucksack and about upcoming shows can be found at the bands website, mmbband.com. Suffered burns to face when trying to flee, LCFD officials report.The deal would expand NextEra Energys already-massive footprint in the state. Its Florida Power & Light subsidiary is by far the largest electric utility in Florida, serving nearly 5 million customers. Gulf Power, with about 450,000 customers in eight counties, is the largest utility in the Panhandle. Florida City Gas has about 110,000 residential and commercial natural-gas customers in Miami-Dade, Brevard, St. Lucie and Indian River counties. NextEra said it will buy a 100 percent ownership interest in a power plant near Cocoa known as Plant Oleander, which has contracts to sell electricity to the Florida Municipal Power Agency and Seminole Electric Cooperative. It also will buy a 65 percent stake in a generating unit, known as Stanton A, at the Stanton Energy Center complex near Orlando. The unit is jointly owned by The Southern Company, the Orlando Utilities Commission, the Kissimmee Utility Authority and the Florida Municipal Power Agency, according to information on The Southern Company website. These transactions will provide meaningful benefits for the state of Florida, and Gulf Power and Florida City Gas customers, as well as NextEra Energy shareholders, Jim Robo, chairman and chief executive officer of NextEra Energy, said in a prepared statement. Importantly, these transactions are consistent with our long-standing, disciplined approach of maintaining the strength of our balance sheet and credit ratings, both of which are among the strongest in the industry. NextEra Energy plans to finance the deal through the issuance of new debt, according to the announcement. The $6.475 billion total includes NextEra Energy assuming $1.4 billion of Gulf Power debt. Subsidiaries of The Southern Company, which is based in Atlanta, operate in numerous states. In addition to Gulf Power, the subsidiaries include Alabama Power, Georgia Power and Mississippi Power. The Florida Public Service Commission last year approved a settlement agreement that set base rates for Gulf Power. In the announcement, NextEra Energy said that with the addition of Gulf Power, Florida City Gas and the power plants, the Juno Beach-based company will be even better positioned to generate long-term shareholder value through a more robust financial profile, greater scale and an expanded platform for growth. But the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, which frequently intervenes in utility cases in Florida, expressed concern Monday about the purchase. While Southern Alliance for Clean Energy is still reviewing this deal, it raises concerns that any one monopoly utility would control such a significant percentage of Floridas energy market, the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy said in a prepared statemet. Such consolidation of control may limit competition at a time when we need more and not less. FPLContinued From 1A MERCYContinued From 1A proceedings, is facing second-degree murder charges. Neighbors estimated that Luckey and Sullivan had been together for about 30 years before the shooting, but several of the people who knew them said their relationship was rocky. Reports from first responders indicate several visits through the years to the couples address. First responders reportedly received 96 calls since 2007 relating to the couples address at Bobcat Drive, according to the official call history record. About 20 of the calls involved disturbances on the property, most of which involved the couple. Deputies found Sullivan dead in the homes master bedroom, lying face-up in a pool of blood with multiple gunshot wounds, sheriffs office reports said. According to CCSO, a handgun was found on a shelf in the living room. Luckey called 911 to report she had shot Sullivan, then waited in her truck for officers, reports said. SANITYContinued From 1A When we come back it just was on my heart to help the homeless because we read up on it and saw what was going on.

When did it become sexist for a man to ask a woman to do something she did not want to do, or for a man to refuse to do something a woman wanted him to do? No, dont bother to answer; it was a rhetorical question. Clearly, it became sexist when Donald Trump was elected to office, because on that day the clouds rained locusts down upon the fair heads of the ladies in their pretty pink hats. I initially watched with bemusement and then with increasing anger as many of my sisters have decided to use the election of the admittedly boorish Donald to plot their way to power. That would be fine, if they did it in a principled way. But they dont. In fact, as we got closer to primary day, it became obvious that some of the female candidates were not riding a blue wave, or a brave wave, but a whiny wave. Here is one example: Greg Vitali, Pennsylvania state representative from the 166th District (full disclosure: mine) was accused by Molly Sheehan of being sexist because he asked her to drop out of the Democratic primary for the newly-drawn Fifth Congressional District. Both Vitali and Sheehan have a strong history in environmental advocacy, and Vitali did what many other candidates have done: Ask their opponents to drop out of the race and endorse them. Its not always effective, but its also not rare. Unfortunately, in this Year of the Woman, it is now deemed sexist to ask a female candidate to leave the race, even if you have also asked male candidates to do the same thing. I had Vitali on my radio show Sunday night, and asked him about the incident. He admitted hed asked Sheehan to leave the race, but he said hed also asked Thaddeus Kirkland to do the same thing. Sheehan, between sniffs of Victorian smelling salts, was quoted as saying Vitali was asking a strong woman candidate to drop out to support him so he can defeat another woman candidate. She then wrote a piece for Medium that recounted the story of the phone call designed to silence a woman. There is absolutely nothing wrong with Molly Sheehans being annoyed that a competitor asked her to wave the white flag and live to fight another day. She had every right to tell him in no uncertain terms that she was in it to win it, and no one would blame her for throwing in a few salty adjectives to boot. But she didnt do that. She ran to the media and whined about how the big bad man was trying to keep the strong woman from fulfilling her destiny in the Year of the Women Who Must Save the Country From Trump. It is exactly the type of thing that a strong woman does not do. Another thing a strong woman does not do is tell other women that they must vote for her because otherwise they will become extras in The Handmaids Tale. Im exaggerating, but I cant be the only person annoyed by all of the ads from Mary Gay Scanlon touting her support for Planned Parenthood. I was particularly outraged by the TV ad her campaign ran on CNN during its documentary about Pope John Paul II. How dare she, I thought? I suppose pro-life Catholic women dont deserve to be able to watch a show about a famously pro-life champion in peace. Scanlon, by the way, won her primary. Im sure Cecile Richards, former president of Planned Parenthood, will send flowers. And then there was Madeleine Dean, who ran ads that practically begged Pennsylvania voters to send a woman to Congress, because there were too many candidates with penises in D.C. We all got the idea when one of her campaign ads featured what looked like mug shots of all the men in Congress from Pennsylvania and she implored us to, as Abigail Adams once famously wrote, remember the ladies. Its not hard to remember the ladies these days. Theyre all over the place, demanding a place at the table. And thats fine, as long as we focus on substance. But to me, Sheehan, Scanlon, Dean, and the other females who threw their pink hats in the primary ring this year were, um, primarily just vagina demagogues.

Whining on the campaign trailFederal sugar program is no treat Christine M. Flowers is a lawyer and columnist for the Philadelphia Daily News. Readers may send her email at email@example.com. Christine M. Flowerscowers1961@gmail.com Federal sugar program is no treat It wont be hard to find people smiling when the National Confectioners Associations Sweets and Snacks Expo comes to McCormick Place today through Thursday. All those delectable treats have a way of fostering happiness. But among the thousands of businesspeople convening to check out new products and discuss deals, one topic invariably brings frowns: the federal sugar program. Its one of those strange Washington creations that has survived long after its gross defects became common knowledge to anyone paying attention. The complex scheme has a simple purpose: keeping American sugar prices high by restricting production and blocking imports. And it works brilliantly in that the price of sugar in this country generally runs about double the world price. This achievement is a boon if, say, you grow or process sugar cane or sugar beets. But if you buy, use or eat sugar, as most everyone does, its hard to swallow. Plenty of companies that make candy and other sweetened products have moved their operations to countries where sugar is available at a more reasonable cost. In 2003, Chicago lost a Brachs factory, with much of the work being moved to Mexico. Kraft closed a Life Savers plant in Holland, Mich., and shifted production to Canada. John Brooks, president of a Los Angeles candy company that opened a factory in Tijuana, explained his options to The New York Times: You move or you go out of business. The Commerce Department has estimated that those high U.S. prices destroy three times more jobs than they preserve. The Canadian Sugar Institute, whose members profit from the rigged system here, notes that its industry operates under an open market policy, based on the principles of free trade. By aligning sugar prices closely with world market raw sugar prices, Canadian refiners have been able to market refined sugar at prices below those of almost all other industrial nations. Why havent we tried that? Plenty of agricultural commodities, after all, are grown without these elaborate government controls. But a small, well-organized special interest group has persuaded Congress to preserve a system that disables the free market in favor of letting bureaucrats and politicians determine prices and production. The government even decides how much of the supply will come from beets and how much from cane. A Soviet central planner would feel right at home. Congress had the chance to reform or abolish the sugar program as it considered the 2018 farm bill. An attempt four years ago narrowly failed, and supporters of the status quo are gearing up to keep what theyve got. But if our lawmakers leave the sugar program intact too much longer, they will be punishing consumers and companies that use sugar, inflicting economic costs that greatly exceed the benefits. Its enough to make your teeth ache. Chicago TribuneThe government even decides how much of the supply will come from beets and how much from cane. A Soviet central planner would feel right at home.

FIND WHAT YOU NEED IN TODAYSCLASSIFIEDSCosmetic issues at City Hall skin-deep?By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comCosmetic issues on the City Hall building have resulted in officials ordering a study to determine whether there are any deep-rooted causes to the problems. Monday afternoon city officials unanimously voted in favor of having a facade assessment done by Tetra Tech on the western and southern walls of the building. The study is not to exceed $17,000. The building was built in 1911 and the old brick is starting to come loose from the side of the building, said Grayson Cason, interim city manager, following the meeting. The brick wall were concerned about its stability and whether will stand. Weve have preliminary taken steps to stabilize that wall to ensure it does not collapse or fall. The city has received an estimate to remove the facade and replace it. However, they plan to have the assessment completed to make sure there are no other problems associated with the buildings structure which is displaying itself through the facade problems. Before we take all that brick down and put it back up, we want to make an additional analysis and look to make sure we dont have any other problems in the proximity of that wall that would cause us to have a more extensive project, Cason said. We dont want to take all that brick down and discover something new. We want to know about it before we get there. Tetra Tech will be tasked with looking into the buildings walls, floors and ceilings to determine if there is a structural issue. In addition to the facade issue, Tetra Tech employees will also into issues on the second and third floors of the building where the floors seem to be sloping toward the western side of the building. We want to make sure thats a stable, secure environment and that theres nothing there to be causing a problem with the western wall or with the stability of the building, Cason said. We just want to make sure we dont have any problems before we start opening things up.

JORDAN KROEGER/Lake City ReporterColumbia pitcher Micah Krieghauser signed his national letter of intent on Tuesday to attend Toccoa Falls College. PREP BASEBALL SOARING ONBy JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comMicah Krieghauser was told he wasnt talented enough to play little league baseball when he was just six years old. At least according to Babe Ruth Baseball in Lake City. But Kriegahuser knew he could pitch and he was right. To this day, he still holds the league records in strikeouts and an ERA of 0.57 in 12 games. Now, following a stellar career at Columbia, hes headed to play baseball at the next level. Kriegahuser signed his national letter of intent on Tuesday at attend Toccoa Falls College in Georgia following two years on Columbias varsity squad. He helped lead the Tigers to back-to-back district titles (part of four straight overall) and now hopes to leave another mark in Toccoa. Its kind of funny how it turned out, said Krieghauser, who will be a seven-inning weekend starter for the Eagles. Now Im signing to go to college and I hold all those records. No matter what anybody tells you, if you put your mind to it you can do it. Krieghauser was officially offered by Toccoa Falls on Apr. 2 and he committed less than three weeks later following his official visit. While on his trip, Krieghauser was allowed to bunk with the players in the dorm and he was able to get to know them on a personal level, in addition to watching them play. It was one of the best experiences Ive had in a long time, said Krieghauser, who plans to major in sports management and minor in biblical theology. I stayed with some of the guys in the dorm and they took me under their wing and they really liked me. I hit it off with them so it was a good fit.BRENT KUYKENDALL/Lake City ReporterColumbia pitcher Micah Krieghauser pitches against Gainesville in the District 3-7A championship on May 2.

Goodell detailed the leagues position in a statement Monday that reiterated the NFLs stance that legalized sports gambling in the United States should be governed by federal law rather than state law. The Supreme Court ruled last week to strike down a 1992 law that barred most state-authorized sports gambling. In suggesting four core principles that should be maintained for any form of legalized sports betting, Goodell stressed that leagues can protect our content and intellectual property from those who attempt to steal or misuse it. He also said guidelines must provide substantial consumer pro tections; ensure fans will have access to official, reliable league data; and that law enforcement will have the resources, monitoring and enforcement tools necessary to protect our fans and penalize bad actors here at home and abroad.USOC hires FBI executive as its athlete safety directorWASHINGTON (AP) The U.S. Olympic Committee hired an FBI executive as senior director of athlete safety, marking its latest effort to strengthen sex-abuse policies that are being rewritten in the wake of cases involving Olympic athletes.

New York used three pitchers in a scoreless but eventful sixth inning. Paul Sewald got two outs but put two on before left-hander Jerry Blevins entered to face lefty slugger Justin Bour. Blevins walked Bour on a full count and was replaced by Ramos, and the right-hander struck out pinch-hitter Derek Dietrich swinging to leave the bases loaded and preserve a 1-0 lead. Amed Rosario got a big cheer for a single in the third inning a day after his first multihomer game as a pro. He then scored from first on a double to right field by Asdrubal Cabrera that made it 1-0. Rosario also smashed a line drive to deep center that was caught in the seventh inning. Miami starter Elieser Hernandez (0-1) held New York to a run and five hits over five innings.COLLEGE BASEBALL NBA PLAYOFFS By DAVID BRANDTAssociated PressLSU coach Paul Mainieri is a big fan of the drama that sur rounds the opening day knockout round of the Southeastern Conference baseball tournament. In a rare change, the Tigers will be part of it this year. The storied LSU program has struggled this season especially by its lofty standards and is the No. 8 seed at this weeks SEC Tournament in Hoover, Alabama. The Tigers face No. 9 Mississippi State on Tuesday in what might be a must-win game for their NCAA Tournament chances. Mainieri said his team must embrace the high stakes on Tuesdays game without feeling the pressure. LSU was the national runner-up last season and has made the College World Series in three of the past five seasons. Itll be an exciting ballgame, Mainieri said. And thats all were going to do were going to play a baseball game. Nobody knows the postseason ramifications so Im not even going to try to speculate. The SEC has used the opening day knockout round format since 2013 when the tournament expanded to 12 teams. The No. 5 through No. 12 seeds play a single-elimination game on Tuesday and the winners advance to a double-elimination format that begins on Wednesday. The other games on knockout Tuesday: No. 6 Vanderbilt vs. No. 11 Texas A&M, No. 7 Auburn vs. No. 10 Kentucky and No. 5 South Carolina vs. No. 12 Missouri. Kentucky and Texas A&M are among the programs in a similar position as LSU, teetering on the edge of an NCAA Tournament invitation. The four teams auto matically earning a spot in the double-elimination round are No. 1 seed Florida which is the defending national champion No. 2 Ole Miss, No. 3 Georgia and No. 4 Arkansas. The tournament format goes back to a single-elimination format for Saturdays semifinals and Sundays final. Ole Miss coach Mike Bianco said seeding wont matter much in Hoover. The truth is it feels like the league is loaded every year, Bianco said. If you dont play well, youll lose. Everyone is good and everyone can beat you if you dont play your best baseball. Some other things to watch when the SEC Tournament starts on today:PROSPECT PARADISEThe SEC is once again full of highly-rated Major League Baseball prospects who could be picked very early in next months amateur draft. Among the biggest names: Auburn pitcher Casey Mize, Florida pitcher Brady Singer, Florida third baseman Jonathan India and Ole Miss pitcher Ryan Rolison.BULLDOGS ON A ROLLMississippi State had a tough start to the season when coach Andy Cannizaro resigned following the seasons opening weekend because of poor decisions that werent specified by the school. The Bulldogs struggled during first several weeks, but have been one of the leagues better teams during May and capped the regular season with a stunning three-game sweep of No. 1 Florida.FLORIDA BACK IN THE POSTSEASONFlorida begins its postseason quest to win a second straight national championship on Wednesday. The Gators have been one of the best teams in the country this season and had a 20-10 record in league play. They come into the tournament on a four-game losing streak, which is their longest of the season.GEORGIAS REVIVALGeorgia was the national runner-up in 2008, but has struggled over most of the past decade. The Bulldogs have finally had a revival under fourth-year coach Scott Stricklin, finishing with an 18-12 record in the SEC, and hope to continue that momentum into the postseason. Said Stricklin: The bottom line is our talent levels better, our depth is better, but our experience is I think the thing where you see the difference in every single category.SOUTH CAROLINA A THREATSouth Carolina looked like it might not even make the NCAA Tournament a month ago. Now the Gamecocks look like they could be very successful in the postseason. Led by first-year coach Mark Kingston, South Carolina is 11-4 over its past 15 conference games and has won five series in a row.LSU fighting for postseason life at the SEC tournamentCOURTESY OF LSU ATHLETICSLSU senior Austin Bain leads the SEC this season with 21 doubles. LeBron scores 44, Cavs even series with CelticsBy TOM WITHERSAssociated PressCLEVELAND LeBron James scored 44 points, surpassed Kareem AbdulJabbar atop a postseason list and helped the Cleveland Cavaliers even the Eastern Conference finals at 2-2 on Monday night with a 111102 victory over the Boston Celtics, who are looking forward to getting home. Pushed by a raucous crowd that wasnt so confident a few days ago, the Cavs held off Bostons comeback in the fourth quarter and squared a series that is now a best-of-three. Cleveland is trying to become the 20th team out of 300 to overcome a 2-0 deficit and James, who has already orchestrated two such rallies, is a step closer to a third. But to do it again the Cavs will have to win in Boston, where the Celtics are 9-0 this postseason. Game 5 is Wednesday night at TD Center. Kyle Korver added 14 points with several hustle plays, and Tristan Thompson had 13 points and 12 rebounds for Cleveland. Jaylen Brown scored 25 and Boston had all five scorers in double figures, but the Celtics fell behind by 19 in the first half and didnt have enough to catch Cleveland. And, of course, they didnt have James, who moved past Jabbar (2,356) for the most field goals in playoff history. James also recorded his 25th career postseason game with at least 40 points his sixth in this postseason. The Celtics hung around in the second half and pulled within 100-93 on Marcus Smarts basket with 4:29 left. But Thompson got free for a dunk, and after a miss by Boston, James recovered after making his seventh turnover by making a steal and layup. Moments later, James drilled a 3-pointer from the left wing to finally put away the young Celtics, who will now feel the immense pressure of trying to hold off the three-time champion.
LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS TUESDAY, MAY 22, 2018 3B DEAR ABBY: Im writing in response to Requires Companionship (Feb. 7), whose husband has atypical Parkinsons and shes considering dating. My wife was diagnosed nine years ago, and she, too, has reached the point where she can no longer walk, write or speak. We have, however, found ways to communicate and spend quality time together. I tried to care for her at home, but over the last year and a half, it became too difficult. With the help of our daughters, we found a wonderful senior living place where she is happy. I go to the gym every morning, then visit with her and have lunch. I bring her clothes home to wash and take care of anything she may need or want. We spend the holidays together with the family at her place to make things special. We are both 81, married 57 years. I, too, am lonely and sad at times, but I love her more than the world and want to make sure she is well taken care of and content. As for companionship, I have met some wonderful people at the senior living place, as well as at the gym and in restaurants I frequent, which helps with the loneliness. If the shoe were on the other foot, I know shed do the same for me. After all, that is what our marriage is all about, in sickness and in health, til death do us part. -JIM IN NEVADA DEAR JIM: Your letter is inspirational. In your P.S. you asked me to print it to help others. Your letter, and others Im including here, may help to put this sensitive subject into per spective: DEAR ABBY: I am a young 57-year-old woman. My husband has Parkinsons and brain tumors. We have a son with autism, so I have been a caregiver for more than 30 years of marriage. To Requires I say: Take time for yourself, but do not tell your husband. Enjoy what years you have left and grab some of the happiness you deserve. Dont let anyone tell you that you are cheating on your husband. The life you had with him was over emotionally and physically long ago. You have given up enough of your life. Your husband is having all his needs met and now its your turn. Yes, I believe in marriage. But who is going to worry about you? People who judge you dont understand and wont understand. Joining a support group may help, but dont put yourself on the back burner. You count, too. Good luck and God bless. -SANDRA IN NEW JERSEY Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com Man devoted to wife suffering from Parkinsons fulfills his vows DILBERT BABY BLUES BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

RAMIREZAssociated PressLAS VEGAS Welcome to Impossible. Those words have been projected onto the ice in big, bold letters at T-Mobile Arena before each game during the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Well, the Vegas Golden Knights are turning impossible into possible. The stunningly successful expansion squad is headed to the Stanley Cup Final after beating the Winnipeg Jets 2-1 on Sunday to win the Western Conference final series in five games. I remember eight months ago, when we won against Dallas (in the season opener), we had that unbelievable feeling, Vegas center PierreEdouard Bellemare said. Doesnt feel like were satisfied. Its a good feeling when you know the guys are excited for the next one. The Golden Knights are the third franchise in NHL history to clinch a berth in the Stanley Cup Final in its inaugural season, joining the Toronto Arenas in 1918 in the leagues early days, and St. Louis Blues in 1968, when all six expansion teams were in the same division and one of them had to make the final round. Vegas will play either Tampa Bay or Washington on hockeys biggest stage. The Lightning lead the Eastern Conference final 3-2, but the Capitals host Game 6 on Monday night. Either way, were not going to be favorites, said Jonathan Marchessault, who leads Vegas with 18 points in the postseason. Thats been the case all year. Tampa has been the best team all year. Washington, (theyre) playing great hockey right now. Either way, were not going to be favorites, and thats fine with us. We went all year like that and were going to keep going. Hence, The Golden Misfits tag. Nobody could have scripted Vegas, a 500-1 long shot at the start of the season, making the playoffs let alone earning a shot at Lord Stanleys Cup. But the Golden Knights, who finished fifth in the league during the regular season, just knocked off the No. 2 team in the regular season in Winnipeg, which in the conference semifinals knocked off the No. 1 team in the regular season, Nashville. Vegas clinched all three of its Western Conference series on the road, becoming the seventh team in NHL history to accomplish such a feat. Everybody on this team has something to prove, said Winnipeg native Ryan Reaves, who scored the winning goal Sunday in his hometown. We call ourselves The Golden Misfits for a reason. Were doing a good job of proving everybody wrong. Just as they have all season, they are living in the moment. Vegas, which had just two players under contract at this time last year, heads into the final round with a 12-3 playoff record after outscoring its Western Conference opponents 42-27. Its a credit to coach Gerard Gallants philosophy of having a well-conditioned, confident group of forwards who work well together, focus on short effective shifts, and exude confidence on the ice all while, as he reiterates it daily, playing 200 feet of hockey. And while the Golden Knights havent necessarily been a high-scoring threat, scoring just three or fewer goals in 12 of their 15 playoff games, their defensemen have played exceptional to this point. Vegas has allowed the least amount of goals in the playoffs, among teams that have played 10 games. It was a stifling and disruptive defense that helped propel the Golden Knights past the Jets on Sunday, with their sixth win in eight road games during the postseason. Everybodys stepping up at different times during the season, said goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, who has 12 wins, four shutouts, a .947 save percentage and 1.68 goals against average. Thats a big reason why weve been playing consistently. The key cog in Vegas engine has been Fleury, whose remarkable play has translated into a career-best postseason. He has allowed two or fewer goals in 10 of 15 playoff games, and is heading to the Stanley Cup final for a third consecutive year. And whether he admits it or not, the 14-year veteran still bears the scars of being left exposed by Pittsburgh last summer after spending the first 13 years of his career with the Penguins. Gallant, who remained coy about his teams aspirations during the regular season, made it clear the Golden Knights havent reached their goal. Its been an awesome ride so far, said Gallant, who some might also consider a misfit after Florida fired him following a road game at Carolina last season, then left him and his luggage on the curb outside PNC Arena. Were going to the Stanley Cup Final, but again, this isnt what we want. We want to win. Its great to win tonight and its great to be the (conference) champions, Gallant added, but thats not what were here for. Even as impossible as that all seemed just a few months ago.Welcome to ImpossibleStanley-Cup bound Vegas turning impossible into possible in first season.

With a physical tone set, the Capitals kept testing Vasilevskiy and eventually cracked him. There wasnt much he could do on Oshies second-period power-play goal from the slot after a deft pass from Nicklas Backstrom gave Vasilevskiy little time to adjust for the one-timer. Drawing a penalty made all the difference for Washington, which hadnt had a power play since the second period of Game 4. Lightning defenseman Braydon Coburn hooked Smith-Pelly to give the Capitals that opportunity, and their penalty kill kept Tampa Bays potent power play off the board for just the second time in the series. With the Lightning pressing and Holtby shining under pressure, the Capitals had chances to go the other way. Smith-Pelly scored Washingtons second goal midway through the third, beating Vasilevskiy after fellow fourth-liners Chandler Stephenson and Jay Beagle did the work on the forecheck to set it up. Oshie iced it with an empty-netter in the final minute. EAST Continued From 1B

Toccoa Falls baseball program has won the NCCAA Division II National Championship four times (2009, 2011, 2012 and 2013) and is rich in recent history, which also drew Krieghauser to the school. Im looking forward to getting on the field and playing with those guys. I went up there to watch them play and it was one of the best teams Ive seen play in awhile in college baseball. Tuesday was a culmination of hard work for Krieghauser, who quickly proved his doubters wrong in Babe Ruth Baseball. He made the all-star team from ages 8-12, throwing his first perfect game in the 12U championship to bring his team home the league trophy. Then, when he was 13 playing on the 15U squad, he helped his team win the league championship and advance all the way to the state championship game, the first ever Lake City team to advance that far in the state tournament. Krieghauser built upon that success at Columbia, going 5-3 in his senior season with a 2.71 ERA in 14 appearances. This is a new beginning for a young man thats earned it through hard work, dedication, the love of his teammates, the love of the game and the pursuit of wanting to do something a little bit more, Columbia coach Brian Thomas said. And heres the unique thing about Toccoa and what Micah is getting ready to go into its going to let him play baseball, its going to let him pursue academics but I think most importantly its going to let him pursue his spiritual side a little bit more. When thats explored and thats allowed to be open, the other two parts of it are going to blossom. Hes going to find out hes a little bit better than he thinks he is in baseball. Hes going to find out hes a little bit better than he is academically because hes going to have a spiritual base and a new awakening spiritually to let these things happen for him so were thrilled that this is happening for him. Krieghauser had some other interest, most notably Southern Wesleyan, but no other offers panned out for him. But Krieghuaser is just fine with that he just wanted to feel wanted and the Eagles delivered. People ask me all the time about going to bigger schools and why didnt you do this or why didnt you do that and its just want versus need, Krieghuaser said. I can want to go somewhere but the really question is do they need me? Toccoa Falls needed me and I wanted to go there so that was the best fit and thats why I chose Toccoa.
