Most children diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a severe and progressive disease with no cure, lose that ability by about age 10, his father said. The OBrien teenager now has to rely on a scooter to get around, making it a challenge to take him on car trips. Were having to lift him and place him in the backseat of our vehicle, and its been very difficult and cumbersome, said father Bill Procko. But theres a way for communi ty members to both help Evan and burn some calories in the process. The family needs a handicap-accessible van Evan can easily get into, but they cost up to $50,000, Bill Procko said. So mother Kimberly Procko has organized the Wellness Through Movement Fundraiser. On June 9, Branfor d Elementary School will host an hours-long fitness event featuring classes on pilates, as well as hula, Zumba and belly dancing. The cost is $60 before June 4 and $70 after.

Memorial Day weekend 2018 is shaping up to be a wet one, with the NWS projecting 3 to 5 inches of rain from the weather system on its way to Lake City from the Caribbean. A Jacksonville NWS meteorologist said he wouldnt quite call it a tropical system. Maybe I would call it subtropical, but thats just semantics, said meteorologist Andrew Shashy. Whatever the designation, he said there was a 60 percent minimum chance it would dump some volume of rain on Columbia County between now and Memorial Day. Chances of rain on the federal holiday and the Saturday and Sunday preceding it are upwards of 80 percent, NWS data show. Unusually wet May will end on a soggy note, says NWS.Natl Weather Service: Wet weekend ahead 2 hurt in collision on US 90GUIDING HAND EVAN continued on 2A COURTESYEvan Procko, 14, paints a nature scene.

She had a green and proceeded through the intersection, but Adam Sanford, who was driving a Chrysler east on U.S. 90, ran a red light and hit the Camrys side around 5:11 p.m., said LCPD spokesperson Mike Lee. Albritton was transported to an area hospital for treatment of non-critical injuries, Lee said. Sanford suffered minor injuries, Lee said. Sanford is believed to be at fault, Lee said. Possible charges are pending investigation. A local business caught the crash on a security camera. Officers planned to pick up the footage this morning.

The ceremony is set for tomorrow in the VA auditorium at 9:30 a.m. with a keynote speaker who spent decades in the U.S. Army and went on to serve as a public official in a neighboring county. Mike Williams, Hamilton County manager from 19982005, will deliver a speech at the Lake City VA Medical Center auditorium on South Marion Avenue. Williams is currently the manager of government and public affairs at Nutrien White Springs Phosphate, according to VA information about the event. There will be several ceremonial proceedings led by local government and law enforcement officials, plus musical arrangements performed by the Disabled Veterans Three, or DV III. The Lake City Police Honor Guard will present colors and accompany the ceremonial wreath laying, and Sheriff Mark Hunter will lead the Pledge of Allegiance, according to a VA press release. Williams spent over two decades in the military from which he retired in 1995, but was called back to active duty in 2005. Mikes most rewarding military assignment was as the Command Sergeant Major of the Wounded Warrior Battalion at Fort Bragg, North Carlolina, the release said. Set for Friday at VA hospital auditorium.paypal.me/evansvan, where those who want to contribute without attending the event can also donate. Doors open at 9:30 a.m., 30 minutes before the event starts. The event lasts until 2 p.m. Lunch is included. Kimberly Procko said the family plans to apply for a matching contribution from a nonprofit group called the Jett Foundation for help purchasing the van. In the meantime, the family hopes to raise as much money as it can. There are many families that seek their assistance, so we hope by bringing a significant amount of money to the table, they will choose Evan, she said. About a year ago, Evan could no longer walk after having fallen and broken his legs on multiple occasions. But Evan is upbeat about his situation, Kimberly Procko said. He doesnt think about what he cant do, she said. He always thinks about what he can. Evan has developed an interest in arts and crafts. Im not just talking about popsicle stuff, Kimberly Procko said. Hes made an infinity mirror, which creates a series of smaller and smaller reflections that appear to repeat endlessly. Hes made a water fountain out of a series of buckets, with color-changing lights and a whirlpool. Hes also pretty skilled with a 3D printer, she said. W ere all amazed, she said. Bill Procko said Evan has also taken up oil painting. And just blowing peoples minds with his artistic skills, he said. EVANContinued From 1AEvan is upbeat about his situation, Kimberly Procko said. He doesnt think about what he cant do, she said. He always thinks about what he can. Its a pretty slow moving low pressure system moving through the northwest Caribbean and Yucatan Peninsula and to the Gulf of Mexico by late Friday, he said. It is expected to gradually shift northward over the weekend. This will increase any likelihood of flooding with soil and streams already saturated from recent weather systems that have brought considerable rain to the area over the past two to three weeks. The main thing is for potential flooding on streets and poor drainage areas, Shashy said. He said their confidence of potential flooding concerns in the Lake City area was increasing. Id say low to moderate right now, he said. Rivers will rise, Shashy said, though some, such as the Santa Fe, are more susceptible to flooding. The Santa Fe River is one of those, he said. Shashy gave a pessimistic prediction for the outdoor desires of those planning trips over the threeday weekend. Its hard to say, he said. Were going to have high rain chances. There might be some breaks where out door events are OK for some hours. The spate of wet weather is unusual for this time of year, Shasha said. This is atypical to get this much so soon, he said. May is usually one of our drier months as we head into summer.

Camping and lodging is available in White Springs and the surrounding areas. On May 22, Columbia County Fire R escue set yet another mark in its plan to better serve the citizens of Columbia County. It is the goal of Chief Jeff Crawford to provide the highest level of emergency services to every citizen of our community. One way of doing this is to place A dv ance Life S upport fire engines throughout the county. Today the second A dv anced Life S upport Engine was placed into service. This truck, above, and inset, will be assigned to the S uwannee Valley S ta tion 42 area in order to assist those in the rural North end of Columbia County. CCFR held a brief ceremony to push the truck into the bay. This is a tradition started many years ago. When a new steam engine was purchased, the department always had a wet down ceremony. This ceremony would signify the breaking in of the new truck, somewhat of a christening. In order to do this the fire for the steam engine would have to be extinguished, therefore the truck would have to be pushed into the station. The fire chiefs used this as a unity builder in the department, and we continued the tradition by pushing the new engine into the bay.

Its all of a sudden OK, at least in the eyes of The New York Times and other guardians of progressive bias, for an administration to spy on a political campaign. You can thereby stop Russia from doing its thing of electoral interference, they emphasize. Less on their lips is the chance of crookedness allegations and turning our republic upside down What were talking about specifically here is the revelation that, in the 2016 presidential campaign, we had this American professor over in England who was on the FBI payroll to the tune of more than $1 million over a period of time. Part of his job, it seems, was to query campaign aides in the Donald Trump campaign. He did not exactly announce his role as he would befriend them and cleverly try to find out whether, just maybe, they were colluding with the Russian government. Was any of this legal or within the bounds of protocol? Some kinds of investigation possibly could be, after all. But this looks an awful lot like it wasnt, and it was something that has never happened before as far as anyone knows. If youve got an administration in the Democratic camp digging around in the campaign of someone in the Republican camp, or vice versa, you are pretty much imitating what totalitarian states do all the time and you are edging us in that direction. What we have here is something very scary. But wait. It gets scarier. The remarkable Wall Street Journal columnist Kim Strassel started picking up and sharing tidbits about what had gone on, and then came stories from a variety of papers while Congress was trying desperately to find out more. The FBI said nothing doing. It told Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee to mind their own business, which they were doing, and so did some Democratic members, and the only thing wrong with that was everything. We have whats called a checks-and-balances system in this country. The idea is to keep any one agency or branch of government responsible, answerable and within the law for the sake of a living republic, and one way this is achieved is in the oversight duties of Congress. The FBI had no right to say no, and its excuse was as flimsy as a feather in a hurricane. It said it could risk the life of the spy if his name were revealed. The thing is, his identity had been made perfectly clear in stories in the Times and elsewhere and his name is now all over the internet. President Donald Trump then got involved, turning to an unsurprisingly klutzy tweet as his way of carrying out his duties and then being told his wishes for an investigation were tyrannical, or something like that. His critics are almost always worse than Trump is, which is no easy thing. Anyway, he ended up having a meeting with FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rob Rosenstein and come to an agreement. Committee leaders would get to review classified material in a special meeting and the Justice Departments inspector general would look into everything, more or less a touch of whats needed. Look, we need the whole shebang to be made public. Of course, it could turn out that the spying was wholly legitimate, but the context is so many currently trying so vehemently to get rid of a duly elected president on grounds that are often highly suspicious. Countering my nervous outlook is the Times, which, as one example, told us in a headline, F.B.I. Used Informant to Investigate Russia Ties to Campaign, Not to Spy, as Trump Claims. The way I see it, the Times is not editorializing in a straight news story, just putting forth an opinion.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINIONReflections on the rainNobody likes soggy holiday weekends, but it appears thats what were in for: the rain weve been getting the last couple of weeks is forecast to continue through Monday and beyond. No matter. The point of Memorial Day is to honor those who gave their lives in defense of our nation, so maybe taking a break from cookouts at the river isnt so bad just this once. Theres lots to ponder and well have plenty of time. Thats a gift those we honor this weekend were denied. Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY On this date: In 1775, John Hancock was elected President of the Continental Congress, succeeding Peyton Randolph. In 1883, the Brooklyn Bridge, linking Brooklyn and Manhattan, was dedicated by President Chester Alan Arthur and New York Gov. Grover Cleveland. In 1844, Samuel F.B. Morse transmitted the message What hath God wrought from Washington to Baltimore as he formally opened Americas first telegraph line. In 1935, the first major league baseball game to be played at night took place at Cincinnatis Crosley Field as the Reds beat the Philadelphia Phillies, 2-1. In 1937, in a set of rulings, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the Social Security Act of 1935. In 1941, the German battleship Bismarck sank the British battle cruiser HMS Hood in the North Atlantic, killing all but three of the 1,418 men on board. In 1959, former U.S. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles died in Washington, D.C. at age 71. In 1962, astronaut Scott Carpenter became the second American to orbit the Earth as he flew aboard Aurora 7. In 1966, the Jerry Herman musical comedy Mame, starring Angela Lansbury, opened on Broadway. In 1976, Britain and France opened trans-Atlantic Concorde supersonic transport service to Washington. In 1980, Iran rejected a call by the World Court in The Hague to release the American hostages. In 2001, 23 people were killed when the floor of a Jerusalem wedding hall collapsed beneath dancing guests, sending them plunging several stories into the basement. In 2006, in rare, election-year harmony, House Republican and Democratic leaders jointly demanded the FBI return documents taken in a Capitol Hill raid as part of a bribery investigation of U.S. Rep. William Jefferson, D-La. (President George W. Bush ordered the documents placed under temporary seal; Jefferson was later found guilty of bribery and sentenced to 13 years in federal prison.) Taylor Hicks was named the new American Idol over runner-up Katharine McPhee. In 2011, Egyptian authorities ordered former President Hosni Mubarak tried on charges of corruption as well as conspiracy in the deadly shooting of protesters whod driven him from power. (Mubarak was ultimately found guilty of corruption, and is facing retrial on charges related to the deaths of protesters.) Spying on Trump wasnt OKBig disappointment at BOCC To the Editor: Trust me when I tell you that this letter does not even closely resemble the first draft. Our Bible reading this morning was 2 Peter 1:3-8. It was a balm for me, and it might help you too. Check it out. Despite rain storms, infirmities of age and illnesses, great distances, and the need to be somewhere else, around 100 people attended the board of county commissioners meeting last Thursday night (at their own expense) to oppose a zoning change to reclassify property on CR 245 (aka Price Creek Road) from low density residential to industrial. One of those mentioned above was a 1991 gubernatorial appointee from Columbia County to the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council who traveled 6 hours through rain storms to address the board. The fact that he, as well as the other 10 or 11 speakers, were given 2 minutes each was disrespectful and inconsiderate. My wife wanted me to use the word distressing. My words come a lot closer to saying what I originally felt, but after the Bible reading it doesnt really matter, so you choose. Now that I have cleaned up my thinking maybe I can find the right words to describe what happened at the meeting without insulting or making others mad. In short, one individuals decision to be somewhere else was deemed to be sufficient cause for the board to reschedule this hearing for the regular meeting on June 7. I cant help but wonder what would have happened if one (or all) of those opposing the application had made a similar request. As things stand right now, Im not certain what will happen at the meeting on June 7, but I hope that no matter where you live in the county you will lend us your support. Those of us involved in this matter are not doing so to be against somebody. We are simply trying to protect our property rights and a way of life being very insidiously threatened. What took place on Thursday night was extremely disappointing and a very poor reflection on the way this situation should have been handled. The good part is that it has strengthened our resolve and our numbers. Help us to fill up that auditorium on June 7. Working together, we will make a difference! William M. Nettles Sr. Lake CityLETTERS TO THE EDITOR Jay AmbroseSpeaktoJay@aol.com Jay Ambrose, formerly Washington director of editorial policy for Scripps Howard newspapers and the editor of dailies in El Paso, Texas and Denver, is a columnist living in Colorado.Why are bears and deer protected?To the Editor: Why are animals like bears and deer monitored and legally protected? I know of no useful purpose that they contribute to mankind except to provide meat and hide and trophies to those that like to hunt them, only in legal seasons. I know of no natural predators to either of them, except hunters. It seems to me that the money spent in regulating, protecting and defending these animals would be better spent in compensating humans, where bears break in and destroy trying to find food,and deer destroy corn crops that farmers have planted as produce. Also, if these animals were deregulated, there probably would be fewer wrecked vehicles, just a thought! Warren Godsmark Lake CityOf course, it could turn out that the spying was wholly legitimate, but the context is so many currently trying so vehemently to get rid of a duly elected president on grounds that are often highly suspicious.

The Gators (42-15) snapped a fourgame skid and play Arkansas or South Carolina next. The Tigers (34-24) face the loser in an elimination game. Mace (4-0) allowed just three hits and Michael Byrne got the final five outs for his 13th save. Down 3-0 early, the Gators got the go-ahead run on Austin Langworthys RBI single in the fifth. Jonathan India had two hits and an RBI. For LSU, Jake Slaughter hit a tworun homer in the second. Daniel Cabrera was 2 for 4 with an RBI. Florida will be without all-Southeastern Conference catcher JJ Schwarz for the league tournament and maybe longer.

Looking to quell a national debate that was sparked by Colin Kaepernick, stoked by President Trump and some say chipped away at the very popularity of Americas game, NFL owners approved a new policy Wednesday that allows players to protest during the national anthem by staying in the locker room but forbids them from sitting or taking a knee if theyre on the field. Commissioner Roger Goodell called it a compromise aimed at putting the focus back on football after a tumultuous year in which television ratings dipped nearly 10 percent. He said it was unanimously approved by NFL owners, but that was immediately called into question when the head of the San Francisco 49ers Kaepernicks former team, no less said he abstained ANTHEM continued on 6BNASCAR: Hall of FameGordon calls HOF selection surrealBy STEVE REEDAssociated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Jeff Gordon didnt give much thought to NASCAR while racing sprint cars in Indiana as a teenager. He was too busy trying to get into open wheel racing. But when Gordons career stalled, he headed South to try his hand at stock car racing and went on to win 93 Cup races third on the career list and four championships while helping NASCAR move from a predominantly regional sport to the mainstream in the 1990s. Gordon was honored for his career achievements Wednesday when he was selected to the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Gordon said it all feels surreal, considering he never thought this was the direction his life would take. I came down to North Carolina hoping and dreaming of something, GORDON continued on 2BPlayers must either stand during national anthem or remain in locker room.BLAZIN ONWARDBy FRED GOODALLAssociated PressST. PETERSBURG Alex Ovechkin scored early and Andre Burakovsky added two second-period goals to help the Washington Capitals put a decade of playoff frustration behind them with a 4-0 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference final Wednesday night. Braden Holtby stopped 29 shots for his second straight shutout and the Lightning, who led the NHL in goals during the regular season, failed to score in the last 159 minutes, 27 seconds a stretch of nearly eight periods. Ovechkin, who had never played a team that advanced beyond the second round, scored 1:02 into the winner-take-all showdown he had described as probably the biggest game in my life. Nicklas Backstrom had an empty-netter to complete the rout. To earn a spot in the Stanley Cup Final, where theyll play the Vegas Golden Knights, the Capitals beat the top-seeded Lightning three times on the road, improving to 8-2 away from home this postseason.

PETERSBURG (AP) Xander Bogaerts sparked a three-run rally in the ninth inning, David Price pitched the bulk of a three-hitter and the Boston Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 4-1 on Wednesday night for their fourth straight win. Bogaerts doubled off Alex Colome (2-5) to drive in J.D. Martinez, who reached on a throwing error by shortstop Willy Adames to lead off the ninth. After a wild pitch, Eduardo Nunez drove in a run with a sacrifice fly, and Boston tacked on another on a passed ball.Realmuto, Castro rally Marlins past Mets in 9thNEW YORK (AP) J.T. Realmuto and Starlin Castro each hit an RBI single off closer Jeurys Familia in the ninth inning, and the Miami Marlins rallied for a 2-1 victory over the New York Mets on Wednesday night. Brandon Nimmo homered in the fifth for the Mets, who carried a slim lead into the ninth. But the Marlins broke through against Familia (2-2), who has four blown saves in 17 chances this season. COURTESYKickin it in the ATLLake City native Cayden Weatherspoon had the opportunity to play for Central Florida United Soccer team based out of Ocala. Central Florida United was created earlier this year and is comprised of the best players from Gainesville Soccer Alliance, Ocala Premier and Lake County Soccer clubs. All of Central Florida United teams from several age groups traveled to Atlanta this past weekend to attend NTH Adidas Cup 2018 for its debut. With everyone nervous about traveling out of state and playing as a team for the very first time, the 2007 boys team played extremely well and were crowned champions after four games of play in their group. Pictured are Weatherspoon (left) and head coach Ahmed Brown. NBA PLAYOFFS but I didnt know much about NASCAR racing, Gordon said. Everything was IndyCar, open wheel, sprint car and midget racing to me. I knew about the Daytona 500 and I knew who Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt were but that was it. Gordon, a first-ballot Hall of Famer, received 96 percent of the votes from the committee, meaning only two of the 57 voters didnt vote for him. Only Petty (200) and Bobby Pearson (105) have won more Cup races than Gordon. Car owners Jack Roush and Roger Penske also were selected to the Hall of Fame, along with drivers Davey Allison and Alan Kulwicki. Roush has won a record 325 races across NASCARs three national series, including five national series owner championships, while his drivers have won three championships. He helped Matt Kenseth (2003) and Kurt Busch (2004) emerge into premier series champions and jumpstarted the careers of Carl Edwards and Greg Biffle. Penske won the premier series championship in 2012 with driver Brad Keselowski, and owns two Daytona 500 wins with Ryan Newman in 2008 and Joey Logano in 2015. Kulwicki, known for his wrong-way Polish victory lap, and Allison, who won 19 Cup races, including the 1992 Daytona 500, were rising stars in NASCAR before their sudden deaths in 1993. Kulwicki died at age 38 in a plane crash that April while the charismatic Allison lost his life three months later in a helicopter crash at 32. Allison joins his father Bobby Allison in the Hall of Fame. GORDON Continued From 1BBy JIMMY GOLENAssociated PressBOSTON Rookie Jayson Tatum had 24 points and Al Horford had 15 points and 12 rebounds to help the Boston Celtics beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 96-83 on Wednesday night and take a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference finals. The Celtics remained perfect in Boston this postseason with their 10th straight victory at home and moved within one win of their first trip to the NBA Finals since 2010. Game 6 is in Cleveland on Friday night, with the decisive seventh game back in Boston on Sunday if necessary. The home team has won every game so far in the series, and none has been closer than nine points. LeBron James had 16 points and 10 rebounds and Kevin Love scored 14 for the Cavaliers, who are trying to reach the finals for the fourth consecutive season. James has played to the end in seven straight seasons.Davis, Gobert lead NBA All-Defensive teamsThe NBA announced the selections for its All-Defensive teams on Wednesday. The first team includes Robert Covington of the 76ers, Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday of the New Orleans Pelicans, Utahs Rudy Gobert and Victor Oladipo of the Indiana Pacers. Minnesotas Jimmy Butler fourth selection highlighted a second team that also includes Philadelphias Joel Embiid, Golden States Draymond Green, Bostons Al Horford and San Antonios Dejounte Murray. Butler also earned second team honors in 2014, 2015 and 2016 with the Chicago Bulls. The guard/forward finished his first season with Minnesota, his seventh in the NBA, with a careerhigh 1.97 steals per game, fourth best in the league.Celtics beat Cavs in Game 5, lead East finals 3-2

LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, MAY 24, 2018 3B DEAR ABBY: My mother is a narcissist and a user. She has never held down a job and blames everyone else. We rarely get along for more than 15 minutes at a time. I used to blame myself, but have realized over the years that Im not alone in how I feel about her. e problem is, she doesnt realize her behavior is unacceptable. If you try to address it, it causes an argument. She has no idea that she has alienated herself from our family and has no friends. She loves me and I love her, but I cant stand to be around her. Im an only child. Because of the way she is there is no one else in her life. Im responsible for 99 percent of her social interactions outside of work. What do I do? She says that because she has no savings, she will be moving in with me when shes older. e idea of taking care of her until she dies keeps me up at night. Part of me wants a relationship with my mother -more for her sake than for mine -but shes toxic. How do I handle her now and as she ages? I feel like a terrible person for feeling this way, but its causing me increasing anxiety. -DIS TRESSED DAUGHTER IN WISCONSIN DEAR DAUGHTER: You are responsible for your mothers social life because you have placed yourself in that position. e person responsible for her social life as well as her nancial situation is her, not you. It is time to tell your mother she had better start putting money away for her old age because she will NOT be moving in with you. To take care of yourself does not make you a terrible person, so do not allow anyone to tell you that it does. DEAR ABBY: I need advice on how to approach a friend, Sar ah, about a sensitive topic. Shes pretty, but she dresses sloppily. Her pants are so loose they slip o her waist, her shirts are too tight and short, and she never wears makeup or jewelry. Id like to take her shopping for clothes that t her better, especially as she has started looking for a new job and will need appropriate clothes for an interview. However, Sarahs a bit on the large side and sensitive about it, so she doesnt like shopping with others and refuses our oers to help. She also gets oended if someone points out that her clothes dont t. I dont want her wardrobe to impede her interviews, and I think she could benet from a new look. How can I gently offer to go clothes-shopping with her so I can help her nd nice clothes without oending her? -FASHIONISTA IN NEW ENGLAND DEAR FASHIONISTA: How is your friend doing in that job search? If she tells you its not going well, that would be the time to oer your help. But do not approach the subject from a grooming perspective, which Sarah could regard as insulting. Instead, approach it from the job attire angle. Suggest she could make a better impression if she dressed for success, and volunteer to help her pick out some things.

6B T HURSDAY, MAY 24, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER COLLEGE BASEBALL: ACC TournamentClemson scores record 17 runs in 4th inning, routs Notre DameAssociated PressDURHAM, N.C. Logan Davidson homered from each side of the plate during a 17-run fourth inning, and Clemson routed Notre Dame 21-4 on Wednesday at the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament. Seth Beer and Chris Williams also homered during the highest-scoring inning by one team in ACC Tournament history, and the third-best in school history for the second-seeded Tigers (44-13). Davidson hit a two-run homer from the left side off Zack Martin in his first at-bat of the inning, then followed with a right-handed grand slam off Tommy Vail. The Tigers batted around twice and sent 21 batters to the plate during the fourth, and Williams three-run homer came in his third at-bat of the inning. Matt Vierling homered for 11th-seeded Notre Dame (24-30), which went 0-2 in the tournament.LOUISVILLE 10, WAKE FOREST 2Josh Stowers homered and drove in six runs, and Louisville beat Wake Forest on Wednesday at the Atlantic Coast Conference baseball tournament. Stowers hit a threerun homer in the fourth inning and added a three-run triple during a five-run ninth for the fifth-seeded Cardinals (41-16). Stowers triple followed Logan Wyatts run-scoring single for Louisville, which plays fourth-seeded Duke (3914) on Friday with the winner advancing to the semifinals. Reid Detmers (4-1) struck out five in 5 2-3 innings for Louisville. Colin Peluse (6-2) allowed three runs and five hits in 4 2-3 innings for the ninth-seeded Demon Deacons (25-31). from the vote. The owner of the New York Jets also took a more conciliatory approach, promising not to punish any player who continues to protest against social injustice in full view of fans. The players union said it wasnt consulted in the talks and would file a grievance against any change in the collective bargaining agreement. The owners seemed to address that concern by saying only teams would be fined for violations, not individual players. But the league also cleared the way for teams to set their own workplace policies, raising the specter of an even more convoluted approach to an issue that has dominated conversation away from the field. The head of the NFL Players Association, DeMaurice Smith, angrily denounced the new policy and called it a blow against Americas most basic of rights freedom of speech. Since the new policy is a change in the terms and conditions of employment that was not collectively bargained, any attempts to fine individual players would surely be opposed by the union. Management has chosen to quash the same freedom of speech that protects someone who wants to salute the flag in an effort to prevent someone who does not wish to do so, Smith wrote on Twitter. I know that not all of the NFL CEOs are for this and I know that true American patriots are not cheering today. So, what happens to a player who decides to keep kneeling during The Star-Spangled Banner? Considering Kaepernick is heading into his second year without a job and a former teammate and fellow protester, Eric Reid, is also out of work, it seemed to clear to at least one player what message the NFL was trying to send. If the team says this is what were doing, and ownership (does too), you either deal with it or youre probably going to get cut, Pittsburgh Steelers guard Ramon Foster said. Theyll find a way to get you up out of there. Arizona Cardinals safety Antoine Bethea, who has been in the league for a dozen years, scoffed at Goodells notion that this was a step toward appeasing all sides. If you want to use your right of freedom of speech and take a knee, youre going to get fined, Bethea said. So its really not a compromise. But they did give us the option as far as guys wanting to stay in the locker room. Its going to be something guys are going to have to deal with. Either its going to be a team thing and everybody stays in the locker room or everybody goes out and stands. 49ers CEO Jed York said every owner who voted was in agreement with the new policy, but he abstained because he wasnt comfortable with a process that didnt directly involve the players. He wouldnt say if any other owners declined to vote. I want to work with my team to make sure everything we do is about promoting the right types of social justice reform and getting to a better America, York said. Jet owner Christopher Johnson said his team will pay any fines doled out by the league, without passing on punishment to the players. I will support our players wherever we land as a team, Johnson said. Our focus is not on imposing any club rules, fines or restrictions. Clearly, Goodell and most owners just want to put the divisive issue behind them. The NFL started requiring players to be on the field for the anthem in 2009 the year it signed a marketing deal with the military. We want people to be respectful of the national anthem. We want people to stand, said Goodell, who dismissed concerns about the lack of union involvement by contending the league met with countless players over the past year. Weve been very sensitive on making sure that we give players choices, the commissioner added, but we do believe that moment is an important moment and one that we are going to focus on.acrosanct, if we want to honor the flag, weve got to make sure we go through a litany of things, he said. Were not going to force people to stand in their seats, but were certainly going to make sure were not profiting during that two or three minutes of time during the game. There was no immediate comment from Trump on the new policy, but Vice President Mike Pence called it a win for the fans, a win for (Trump), and a win for America. Last season, Pence walked out of game at Indianapolis after some players kneeled during the anthem. Americans can once again come together around what unites us our flag, our military, and our National Anthem. Thank you NFL, Pence tweeted, adding the hashtag ProudToStand.NFL awards Super Bowl to Arizona (2023), New Orleans (2024)The Super Bowl is headed back to New Orleans for the 11th time and will make its fourth stop in Arizona.

The Miracle Sports all-state first-team selection in 2016 didnt miss a beat either once she arrived at Central Florida plugged into the lineup right away her freshman season with the Patriots. And the hometown girl did not disappoint. Cushman won an impressive 27 games with a 1.84 ERA in her first season, which was good enough to be named Second Team All-Region. While she made a few less appearances as a sophomore, Cushman still managed to record 18 wins and 130 strikeouts this past season. The MFC First Team All-Conference selection was an ace for the Patriots and pushed them to their third conference title in four years. Shes going to provide the stability and experience in the circle, Fagan said about the league leading pitcher before the season started. Despite the gaudy numbers at Central Florida, Cushman says there was certainly a learning curve in the transition from high school to collegiate softball. Even though she cruised at times making it look easy the ace was still maturing into her own. I am in better shape than I have ever been, she said. So that helped me a lot, and then just being in tougher situations. Because in travel ball and high school, it was easier, like I had a good amount of strikeouts my senior year (at Fort White). When I came here, it was harder to strike everyone out (versus) better hitters. So that was something that I had to improve on, like all right, well, these are good pitches but what can I do to make it betterI just had to realize that outs are outs, you know, just because I am not striking them out it isnt a bad thing. Outs are outs. Cushmans heroics over the last couple seasons caught the eye of Valdosta State coach Thomas Macera. Cushman is the latest Columbia County product to play for Macera and the Lady Blazers. Brandy Morgan (Columbia) recently wrapped her career at the school this past season. Cushman now will carry the torch to South Georgia, set to be a Lady Blazer, with plenty of support behind her. Im really excited.FILEFormer Fort White pitcher Morgan Cushman helped lead the Lady Indians to a district title in her senior season in 2016.
