Thanks for reading. With handrails throughout the hallways, a special lift to help pick up patients weighing up to 1,000 pounds off gurneys and button-activated doors, the facility has everything it needs to accommodate handicapped veterans, Stewart said. The Lake City VA Medical Center announced the offsite location last year, citing a growing veteran population. An estimated 5,000 patients will receive primary care services at the facility, wrote local VA spokesperson Cindy Snook. Patients will still have the same caregivers at the new location. Veterans whose care teams are being transferred will be notified in advance so they can express whether they want to move to the off-site facility. Our top priority is to provide the best care to veterans, Snook stated by email. We will accommodate their wishes as attainably as possible. The facility will not have X-ray equipment, an emergency room or in-house prosthetics. There will be a pharmacist on site, however. Veterans who need consults for specialty or ancillary serviceswill receive those at the main hospital or in the community, same as now, Snook wrote. The new facility will also free up parking spaces at the main hospital, Snook wrote, and is more convenient for certain patients. Easy access to care for veterans is very important in regards to receiving their medical care, Snook wrote. With this additional VA facility being closer to the interstate, for many, it will be closer to home and easier to access. STEWARTContinued From 1A This type of crash is going to take about 60-90 days to conclude, said Lt. Pat Riordan of the FHP. Its going to be an in depth investigation and very thorough. According to the report, Howell was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, and was not injured. Warners next of kin was notified, and Riordan added that alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the incident. PROBEContinued From 1A was pronounced dead upon arrival. At this time, the identity of the deceased subject is being withheld pending notification of next of kin. The cause of the death is currently under investigation and investigators are awaiting results from the State Medical Examiners Office in Jacksonville. There is currently no other information available for release, but LCPD is asking anyone who may have information regarding this case to please contact Investigator Kevin Johns at 386-752-4343. The case is being handled by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement as well. BODYContinued From 1AThe facility will not have X-ray equip ment, an emergency room or in-house prosthetics. There will be a pharmacist on site, however. From staff reportsAn 11-year-old boy was trapped in the Lake City Mall mens bathroom for 5-10 minutes Thursday afternoon after the locking mechanism on the door malfunctioned, officials said. A unit from the Lake City Police Department as well as the Lake City Fire Department was dispatched to the mall, 2469 U.S. 90, at 12:28 p.m. to free the youngster. We were paged for a child that was locked in the bathroom at the mall and when we arrived on scene maintenance was already on scene and had removed the handles off the door and was trying to gain access, said Lake City Fire Department Lt. Jeff McNeill. He was unable to gain access. Lake City firefighters then used pry bars and were beginning to make an effort to physically remove the door, when the maintenance man returned with a tool to release the lock mechanism and free the youngster. The door opened, the child came and he was perfectly fine, McNeill said. He wasnt scared at all. McNeill estimated the child was stuck in the bathroom for about 5-10 minutes before first responders arrived.Child briefly trapped in mall bathroom By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE The final page in the high school life of more than 100 students will take place tonight as Fort White High School holds its annual commencement exercises. The graduation ceremony will take place at 7 p.m. at Arrowhead Stadium, 17828 SW State Road 47, weather permitting. Were going to try to hold and do it out there no matter what, said Keith Couey, Fort White High School principal. Its the only place I have down here big enough to hold graduation. However, dangerous weather such as lightning would cause a delay. There are 146 graduation candidates in the Fort White High School Class of 2018. The class Valedictorian is Jorge Gonzalez, while the class Salutatorian is Shelby DuBose. The graduation candidates are scheduled to arrive on campus 4:30-5 p.m. and the stadium will open to the public at 5:30 p.m. The Fort White Class of 2018 will be remembered for coming together later, but leaving here strong, Couey said. You never knew what was going on with this group the whole year and then all of a sudden, theyve become one. They went to the senior picnic together as a big group, at the prom they all showed up you name it, here at the end, theyve all been together. Maybe less than 10 percent of them missed anything. Its been kind of unique with this group.FWHS graduation set for tonight Rain or shine, show will go on, school officials say.

If you have to be on the road, drive with caution, he said, with respect to the potential for puddling on area roadways. Leave extra time and be aware of your surroundings. The impending weather system, named Invest 90L, is currently located over the Gulf of Mexico and is expected to head north over the next several days. According to a press release, on Thursday Governor Rick Scott received a full update on Invest 90L from the Florida Division of Emergency Management. The Governor will continue to be in constant communication with state and local emergency management officials and state agency leaders to ensure the state is prepared to respond to any potential impacts from Invest 90L. With the National Hurricane Center now advising that Invest 90L has an 80 percent probability of tropical development over the next five days, it is absolutely critical that every Florida family is fully prepared for potential impacts, Scott said in the release. In Florida, we know how unpredictable severe weather systems can be and while the Gulf Coast and Panhandle are expected to receive the largest impact from this storm, all Floridians should be pre pared. Even if your home is not in the direct path of this storm, everyone should be ready to follow your emergency plan, which you can build at FLGetAPlan.com, and stay vigilant to weather alerts and updates from local officials. We know that many families have travel plans this Memorial Day weekend but everyone has to put safety first and remember to never drive in dangerous conditions or through standing water. Floridians can also contact their local emergency officials for sandbag locations and other critical preparedness and response resources. This storm is expected to bring torrential rain and significant flooding in communities across Florida. We will continue to monitor its path and do everything we can to make sure our state is fully prepared to keep everyone safe.

I figured that the rest of my life was all planned out, and my life was going to be an advancing career, becoming more and more a solid citizen in the Southern California community, gathering a little wealth, and retiring and fading away. But then something amazing happened: Fate stepped in, and arranged it so Id cross paths with the one who was soon to become the most important part of the second half of my life my soul mate! We met on a sailing ship that I had just joined as a crew member. We took tourists to Catalina Island for a day and dinner cruise. One of the girls along on the tour caught my eye. It was infatuation, fascination, and she soon became the love of my life. That was one of the major crossroads in my life. It resulted in a move to a mountain resort where I sold resort property and cabins, then a relocation to Florida, where I found the careers of my dreams: counseling youth and families, and teaching psychology at Florida Gateway College. What happened? I found out that you can make all the detailed plans you want, and have a vision of your goals and plans, but the most powerful, biggest, and most meaningful events in your life, and the entire direction of your life, can change almost instantly! I dont remember the actual quote, but someone said, Life is what happens to you while you are making your plans. Sometimes the most significant events, situations, opportunities, and adventures, are the most unexpected! How are we supposed to deal with the surprises, shocks, and challenges that life sometimes tosses at us? Ive come to see life as a mystery, an adventure, an amazing curiosity about what lies around the bend. It helps to be able to accept and appreciate change. Instead of fearing change, look for the joy, and the fun, in the surprises and the presents that life offers. Are they always wonderful and fun? No, not in real life. You may get your share of crises, heartbreaks, disasters, challenges, and problems. It may be that good cannot exist without sometimes having to face some bad experiences. All I can say is that life presents us with powerful influences that we can use to learn and grow from. If we can be sensitive enough to recognize them, we can see them as challenges, and as opportunities to learn lifes lessons, and to become a better person because of how we handle them. Try to anticipate the unexpected, whether theyre wonderful gifts, or tragic events that present challenges of adapting and surviving, or challenges to become better from handling them. Wear that seat belt! If it doesnt kill you, itll make you stronger. (Well, most of the time, anyway.) Whatever comes your way, look for the positive side, hope for the best, but be prepared for the worst. Whoever you are, make the most of what youve got to work with your own unique and special talents, skills, abilities, and knowledge. Be the best you can be. And that will help make our world the best it can be. I spent several years as a Cub Scout, Boy Scout, and Explorer Scout, and as an assistant Scoutmaster. The scout motto: Be prepared. You probably dont want to dig a bomb shelter and store 10 years of food, but how about storing a 3-day supply of food and water, and a first aid and survival kit, for that possible hurricane or wildfire? Have plans for evacuation, loss of electrical power, or fuel shortage. Try to save up a few months of emergency savings. By all means, have your dreams and goals, make a plan, but always have Plan B if life plays with you a little bit. Life is a mystery, a wonderful story, a drama, an E-ticket ride. Enjoy the ride. Make it meaningful, productive, and aim to leave behind more for the world than you take. God bless us.

Look no further than todays front page. The new off-site VA clinic, built by local developer Scott Stewart, is coming along nicely and will be open for business in just a few months. What a boon for area vets. Of course, its worth having an off-site VA facility for the parking relief alone. Thanks are also due Stewart for using this opportunity to give us a sneak peak of his new clinic, which he is leasing to the government for 10 years. Read all about it on 1A. Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY On this date: In 1787, the Constitutional Convention began at the Pennsylvania State House (Independence Hall) in Philadelphia after enough delegates had shown up for a quorum.

LETTERS TO THE EDITORJune 7 commission meeting criticalTo the Editor: At the May 17 meeting of the Board of County Commissioners, one of the items on the agenda was to rezone a parcel of land from Residential, Very Low Density to Industrial. This 110.80 parcel of land is located on State Road 100 across from the airport. On the south side are areas zoned both residential and agricultural with wetlands included in it. What the residents of Columbia County dont realize is that if this parcel is rezoned Industrial, it will be in direct competition with the North Florida Mega Industrial Park. The department of Economic Opportunity $3,135,600 grant that was secured to pay for the rail spur construction is contingent on certain terms. The project must be completed in five years and an ROI (Return on Investment) must be created. That ROI is a $30,000,000 private investment and 325 jobs created. If these terms are not met, the taxpayers of this county will foot the bill for repayment in partial or full. Rezoning Industrial property with rail access creates direct competition with the Mega Park. Approximately 50 people attended the Building and Zoning meeting in opposition to the request. It was voted down 3-2. Building and Zoning made that recommendation to the board. At the May 17 meeting of the Board of County Commissioners, the number in opposition rose to approximately 100 people. The owners of the property, Richard Cole and Daniel Crapps, agents for Price Creek LLC, requested a recess so that more information could be brought before the Board. These same owners sued the county on a technicality the last time the rezoning came before the board and was turned down. Taxpayers paid that bill as well. In the recently televised Economic Development Forum, commissioner Tim Murphy stated that voters should Hold us accountable for our actions and make us do our jobs. Now, taxpayers and voters is the time to do just that. A possible vote to approve this rezoning doesnt make sense. Why would Columbia County want to compete against ourselves? Why set ourselves up for possible failure? What dont we know? We want and need government transparency, not career politicians that wont do the will of the very people who put them in office. Please mark your calendars and attend the June 7 meeting at 5:30 pm at the school administration building, in support against this rezoning.

While standing in line at the grocery store recently, I noticed the cover of a national magazine warning about how our troubled economy is negatively affecting families and relationships. According to the headline, money is the number one relationship killer. On one hand, I have to agree: family members quarrel over money and go years without speaking. Friendships end over loans not given or not repaid, and marriages experience huge struggles when both sides arent working together toward a common financial goal. But on the other hand, lets be careful to see the real problem here: money itself is amoral. Money can be a blessing or curse, depending on its use. It is the nature of the person using the money that determines its morality. The Bible speaks often to the issue of money because it is a fact of life: we need money to live. I Timothy 6:7-10 records some basic truths: For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil I once heard a joke about a greedy, miser of a man who hoarded money his entire life and was bound and determined to take it with him when he died. He instructed his wife to place his wealth in the casket when he passed away; he wanted no one else, including her, to enjoy his money after he was gone. After his funeral, friends and family were curious to know whether she carried out his wishes; Of course, she replied, but instead of handling all that cash, it was much more convenient to write him a check! For sure, you cant take it with you! The word content is defined as quietness of mind; satisfaction. When we are struggling with financial issues, isnt quietness of mind the first thing to go? Especially if the struggle includes other people? But notice the last part of this scripture; it tells us that the root of the problem is not money, but the love of money is where all kinds of problems begin. Constantly overextended on your budget? Continually arguing with your spouse over Books and articles on biblical prophecy predicting end time events, the rapture of the Church and the end of the world became popular around the mid-seventies. There were three predictions that all of these shared, two never came to pass and one did. The predictions of when the Church would be raptured and the world would end have come and gone, and the Church and the world are still here. The publishers of these books and articles firmly believed, because of mans seemingly inherent curiosity about the future, that publishing these would be moneymakers, and they made millions. The lesson I learned from this is publishers are better at predicting the marketability of interpreting prophecy than writers are at interpreting it. Bible prophecy can be divided into two parts, those things that have been fulfilled, and those things yet to be fulfilled. The branch of theology that seeks to understand and explain the latter is known as eschatology or the study of last things. Americas recent recognition of Jerusalem as Israels ancient capital has many within the ranks of evangelicals hailing this as a fulfillment of biblical prophecy. While I believe the reestablishment of Israel as a nation in 1948 was a fulfillment of Ezekiels vision in chapter 37 of the book that bears his name, I am not entirely sure how recognizing Jerusalem as Israels capital fits into the eschatological picture. This event seems to have encouraged certain believers into thinking we can hasten the fulfillment of biblical prophecy by our own actions and secular commentators fear that believers, heartened by Jerusalems recognition, will attempt that very thing and by doing so needlessly hinder the peace process and increase violence in the Mideast. The future is like an unveiled jigsaw puzzle. Biblical prophecies are like pieces of the puzzle that give us a fragmented and incomplete picture. The books of Daniel, Ezekiel and Revelation contain many of these apocalyptic passages, but there are other pieces scattered throughout the Bible. Some prophecies are clearer than others, for instance, Jesuss predic-FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, May 25 & 26, 2018 w ww.lakecityreporter.com 5A God loves you!Matthew 18:10-14 Over the past few weeks we have heard the disciples ask Jesus this question: Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. He not only answered their question but also gave them directions on what they or anybody must do to enter the kingdom of heaven. We must come as helpless children to God depending on Jesus Christ alone for salvation. We can not add anything to his death, burial and resurrection to gain entrance or to keep ourselves saved. As we are adapted into Gods family through Jesus Christ we learn to humble ourselves under Gods mighty hand. In humbling ourselves under Gods mighty hand we grow in Christ likeness. As children who are being sanctified by applying Gods Word to our lives we learn a valuable lesson from Jesus. God our Father and Jesus the Good Shepherd will go to great lengths to restore those who have strayed away from them. In the parable of the lost sheep in Matthew 18:10-14 the lost sheep are disciples who have wondered away from the Lord and his church to their own detriment. First Jesus teaches us that we, do not despise one of these littles one. The little ones in this passage of Scripture is people who have humbled themselves like the child Jesus was showing the disciples. The little ones are disciples of Jesus. To despise someone means to look down on them. We may be despising people when we tempt them to sin against the Lord. The reason why we do not want to despise any of these little ones is because their angels in heaven constantly are seeing the face of Jesus Father in heaven. Here Jesus is telling those listening that God is his Father and that he is God in the flesh. We know from Hebrews 1:14 that angels are ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation. The psalmist writes, For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. (Psalm 91:11) We even know from Psalm 34:7 that the angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him and he delivers them. The Lord uses a shepherd of sheep to help us understand just how much Gods love for us is. If a shepherd will go to great lengths to find a sheep that has wondered off to his own destruction how much more has the God the Father done for us in Jesus Christ his Son. Even after we are adopted into the family when we are separated from him he comes looking, continuously seek us until we turn back to him. God reveals his heart concerning his adopted children. When we stray from him he doesnt want us to die a premature death. We dont loose our salvation but Jesus teaches us in John 15:2 Every branch in Jesus that doesnt bear fruit he takes away. God loves you with an everlasting love. Will you return to him?

Competing interpretations exist because of this fragmented picture shrouded in symbolism, but all will become clearer as these foretold events begin to unfold. On the day of His ascension, the disciples were still questioning Christ when he would restore the prophesied Davidic kingdom. Jesus told them, It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority, but you are to be My witnesses, Acts 1:7-8. There are three truths gleaned from Jesus final instructions. The future is on Gods timetable and nothing we do will hasten or delay its fulfillment. Unbelievers do not need to be concerned with what believers do; they need to be concerned with what God will do. Believers cannot bring about Christs return, but we are commissioned to prepare the world for His return by sharing the Gospel. KINGContinued From 5Amoney? A workaholic with no time for your family? These are just a few of the temptations and traps that plunge men into ruin. One of the biggest traps here is to think that more money will solve these problems. In Luke 16:10 the Bible says, Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much If the way we are handling the money we have is damaging the relationships in our lives, there is a good chance that more of it may make things even worse.. In his book Money Answers, financial planner and best selling author Dave Ramsey agrees with Gods Word that contentment is the most important financial concept. He writes, Happiness is sold to us as an event or thing, and consequently our finances have suffered. Fun can be bought with money, but happiness cannot. In other words, contentment is not found in gathering more stuff, but in our relationship with God and others. Changing our focus on how we pursue happiness will ultimately change our financial situation and our life for the better. After all, in the end it will not be our checkbook, but our hearts that matter. Blessings, Angie LANDContinued From 5A Gary B.

Columbias Daveion Love (top row, from left) took home the Pitcher of the Year Award. Clayton Steinruck received the Most Valuable Player Award. Cole Frier received the Tiger Award. Caleb Strickland (bottom row) won the Offensive Player of the Year Award and Jamie Minchin won the Defensive Player of the Year Award. By JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comClayton Steinruck stepped to the podium, whipped out his speech and warned his teammates it wouldnt be short. It wasnt. Columbias centerfielder spoke from the heart for nearly nine minutes, telling each and every player, as well as his coaches and parents, what they all meant to him during his four years in a Tigers uniform. Thats why it was no surprise that his peers voted him as the team MVP at Thursdays team banquet following a senior season where he hit .301 with 12 RBI. Im kind of at a loss for words honestly, Steinruck said after the banquet. I was kind of expecting (Jamie Minchin) to win honestly because of all the work he put in behind the plate and he had that home run too. But it means a lot. These guys are really important to me and for them to vote me and to show that they have that confidence in me, thats really important and makes me feel really good. It makes me feel like I did kind of a good job as a teammate, which is more important than being a good player. Columbia coach Brian Thomas says Steinruck was the heart and soul of the Tigers this season, which ended with their fourth straight district title and playoff berth. He was one of the first kids I met when I got here (two years ago) and hes just kind of been that way, Thomas said. Hes vocal, he has the swag or whatever you want to call it but hes kind of the spokesperson for the team, the senior class and Im fine with it. The one thing Ive always told these kids is if you talk it, you better be able to walk it and back it up and for Clayton for two years, hes done a pretty good job of it. First baseman Caleb Strickland received the Offensive Player of the Year Award after hitting .294 with 10 RBI and one of Columbias four home runs on the season.

PETERBURG (AP) Blake Snell threw six scoreless innings, Wilson Ramos drove in two runs, and the Tampa Bay Rays avoided a three-game sweep by beating the Boston Red Sox 6-3 on Thursday night. Snell (6-3) allowed three hits, walked two and struck out eight. The Rays took a 5-0 lead after two innings, helped by a pair of Boston miscues.James, Harden lead All-NBA first teamNEW YORK (AP) LeBron James was unanimously selected to the All-NBA first team for a record 12th time, while Houstons James Harden also appeared on all 100 first-team ballots. They were joined Thursday on the first team by New Orleans Anthony Davis, Golden States Kevin Durant and Portlands Damian Lillard. James passed Kobe Bryant and Karl Malone with the 12th first-team selection of his 15-year career. He also was a sec ond-team selection twice. The second team was forwards Giannis Antetokounmpo of Milwaukee and LaMarcus Aldridge of San Antonio, Philadelphia center Joel Embiid, and guards Russell Westbrook of Oklahoma City and DeMar DeRozan of Toronto. Injury absences sent Golden States Stephen Curry tumbling to the third team, where he was joined in the backcourt by Indianas Victor Oladipo. Minnesota teammates Karl-Anthony Towns and Jimmy Butler, and Oklahoma Citys Paul George rounded out the third team.Trump pardons late boxer Jack JohnsonWASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump on Thursday granted a rare posthumous pardon to boxings first black heavyweight champion, clearing Jack Johnsons name more than 100 years after what many see as his racially-charged conviction. Johnson, a prominent athlete who crossed over into popular culture decades ago with biographies, dramas and documentaries, was convicted in 1913 by an all-white jury for violating the Mann Act for traveling with his white girlfriend. That law made it illegal to transport women across state lines for immoral purposes.

DEAR ABBY: I was divorced seven years ago. My ex-wife, Annie, and I were married almost seven years and had what I thought was a great relationship. Then we bit off more than we could chew financially. I began working long hours to get us out of the pit, which created distance between us until divorce became inevitable. We tried working things out five years ago. It failed. Since then, I have been in a handful of relationships that ultimately went down in flames. Three months ago, I rekindled one of those relationships, but it ended quickly because, in a moment of passion, I called her by Annies name. I contacted Annie and shared it with her hoping for something. A month later, I lost my mother to lymphoma and contacted Annie as a shoulder to lean on because I had no one else. She has a new fiance now, and when she told me, I was devastated. I have started talking to someone new, and its going well so far, but I find myself dreaming about Annie and longing for her and the good times. How do I get over her? I find myself looking at mutual friends Facebook pictures just to get a glimpse of her. -TORN APART IN TEXAS DEAR TORN: Stalking your ex-wife on Facebook isnt going to get you what you want. It wont win her back or help you to get on with your life. What WILL help will be to start talking with a licensed mental health professional who can help you begin to reorient your thinking and start living in the present rather than the past. Please consider it, because your emotional dependence on your ex is neither helpful for you nor productive. DEAR ABBY : I have a pet peeve with my husbands family and am wondering if I am wrong. My in-laws often pick up a toothpick and use it while we are still seated at the dinner table. This happens even in restaurants. When they dine in my home, they leave their used toothpicks lying around. Its disgusting. My mother-in-law is now starting to floss her teeth in public. I believe these activities should be done in private. Is there any written protocol about the use of toothpicks? I know my motherin-law reads your column, and Im hoping she wont miss this. -- PICKED OFF DEAR PICKED: I agree that good manners dictate oral hygiene should be attended to away from the dinner table, and so does Emily Post. In Emily Posts Etiquette (18th edition), she writes, Toothpicks should be used in private, not as you walk out of the restaurant or, worse still, at the table. The same is true of flossing, in order to avoid having ones dental detritus land on the table or, worse, on a dinner companion. DEAR ABBY: I am 19, and I have been smoking and drinking -a lot -ever since I was 14. I also sneak out and go to parties and hang out with a gang Im in. We get into a lot of fights. I know I have hurt quite a few people, and I want to set myself straight. Im worried because Im dealing with major anger issues and I dont want to hurt anyone else. Please help me. -ANGER IN THE SOUTH DEAR ANGER: The gang life can be difficult and dangerous to escape. If you have relatives in a different city, a step in the right direction might be to ask if you can live with them for a while. Im sorry you didnt mention whether you managed to get your high school diploma. If the answer is no, your next step should be to see if you can take adult education classes and earn your GED. At the same time, inquire if there is counseling available through the school to help you with your anger issues. Stay safe, remain focused and you will be surprised at what you can achieve. DEAR ABBY: My ex-husband and I are still living in the same house for financial reasons. We speak to each other only regarding our kids and the house. Otherwise, we keep our lives as separate as possible. I havent spoken to anyone from his family since our separation more than a year ago. What would be expected of me if someone in his family falls ill or passes away? We were married 30-plus years. I dont think Id feel comfortable inserting myself into their private time, yet I feel like maybe I should, considering our kids and the amount of time Ive known them all. Thoughts or rules? -DONT KNOW MY PLACE IN THIS DEAR DONT KNOW: If your presence would provide comfort to the grieving family members, you should go to the viewing or funeral. If you feel it would prove stressful, then send a card or flowers expressing condolences. READER ALERT! If you know a student who would like to enter the $5,000 Dear Abby College Columnist Scholarship contest, see the information on DearAbby.com/ scholarship and learn more. The deadline is fast approaching. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Do what you can to help out, but dont take on responsibilities you dont have time for because someone is pressuring you. Know your strengths and weaknesses before you participate in a joint endeavor. Avoid emotional manipulation. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Snap decisions will lead to regret. Gauge a personal situation before you jump in and take a risk. Someone is likely to disappoint you if you assume you have his or her support. Work alone, and do what needs to be done. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Put more energy into perfecting your skills and looking for a new way to put them to good use. If you branch out, youll discover you have more options than you realize. A youngster will offer insight through an innocent remark. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Open up about what you want. The best way to resolve an emotional issue is to discuss your feelings and offer suggestions. Working with the people you deal with daily is your best alternative. Personal improvements are favored. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Productivity will lead to praise and good fortune. Being excessive will lead to loss and added stress. You can put in the time and do things right, or you can choose to overspend and hire an outsider. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Information will change the way you think and what you do next. Listen to an expert and apply the knowledge you receive to whats going on in your personal life and your relationships with others. You will make better choices. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Control your emotions when dealing with personal financial matters. Mixing sentimentality with money will put you in a vulnerable position if someone is asking for a favor or when you or your partner are mismanaging joint assets. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take a different approach to personal relationships or dealing with children, older relatives or someone trying to put demands on you. Anger will not solve anything, but a plan that offers an incentive will lead to success. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Use diplomacy and charm when dealing with sensitive issues; you will find a way to get what you want. Good results will unfold if you offer assistance or suggestions that will deter someone from not living up to a promise. 4 CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Be careful what you wish for. A change you want to make should be considered carefully. Without proper preparation, you will fall short of your goal. Discuss your plans with someone you love; youll receive the help you need. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Update your surroundings, host a social event or look for alternative living arrangements that better suit your familys needs. However, dont raise your overhead when you should be trying to lower it. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Indulge yourself. Relax, go to the spa or make changes that will improve your appearance, surroundings or personal life. Love and romance are highlighted and will bring about positive changes to the way you live.

6B F RIDAY, MAY 25, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER Penske was one of five nominees selected this week for NASCARs Hall of Fame NASCAR Chairman Brian France called Penske a man of the highest integrity and cited the standard of excellence The Captain sets in every aspect of his life excellence found in every element of the Penske Corp. In his first interview since he learned of his election, Penske pointed to his parents and the childhood they gave him for shaping his career. Yes, they sent him to Culver, but I wasnt a bad boy, he insisted. They also sent him to YMCA camp in Canada, where he learned portaging, rode the rapids and lived in jungle hammocks. I had a very different upbringing, I think my parents gave me the opportunity to do many different things than just hang out, Penske told The Associated Press. I learned to lead, and when youre a leader you have to set an example and I think thats been something that weve tried to drive through our organization. Youve got to be transparent, you have to have integrity, we all make mistakes and nobody has a perfect career. But on the other hand, the ability to look someone in the eye, and they know that youre dealing with them with honesty, is so important. Penske has been in motorsports more than 52 years and his success is global. His motto effort equals results came from his father and is passed down to his employees. He expects the very best, and delivers it in turn. His executives are as important as his secretaries. The drivers arent any more special than the employees who arrive long before the race weekend to set everything up to Penske standards. Its a very flat organization in racing, and once you forget that, you dont win, Penske said. Its the truck drivers, the guy polishing the wheels, setting the air pressure on the tires, pulling the tear-off during a pit stop all these things are as important, and people forget that. The best teams are the ones that get into the very detail, not just the driver, not just the crew chief, but everybody else. Winning and trying to win on the weekends has made me a much better manager in my business. He figures Team Penske brought some years experience to Indianapolis this year and that kind of experience you just cant buy. That experience has led to a record 16 Indy 500 victories and a strong shot at another win on Sunday. Simon Pagenaud, the 2016 IndyCar champion, starts second. Will Power, winner of the Indianapolis Grand Prix two weeks ago and the 2014 series champion, starts third. Josef Newgarden, last years series champion, starts fourth. The ace in the hole, three-time Indy 500 winner Helio Castroneves, starts eighth. Penske will be calling Castroneves race as the Brazilian attempts to tie the Indy record of four wins. How the race ends will determine whether Penske hops on his plane and heads to North Carolina to watch Ryan Blaney, Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano race in NASCARs longest event of the year Sunday night. He fields Chevrolets in IndyCar, and at Indianapolis Motor Speedway the brand has been the fastest all month. Penske is a Ford guy in NASCAR, and the blue oval group has dominated the first quarter of the NASCAR season. Already a winner via his Hall of Fame induction, Penske has a realistic shot at celebrating two more times this weekend. His scope reaches beyond American motorsports, too. Team Penske competes in five different series that race in the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand. All of this is evolutionary, you get one success and if youre motivated, you want to go to the next, he said. I think weve done that in our automobile business. Our truck leasing business, we started out with 300 units in the late s and today we have 272,000 trucks running on the highways. We sold 500,000 cars in our dealerships in 2017. These are goals you dont set, you just arrive at these and then you continue to push further. I think thats what were doing in racing. Racing is a great platform for innovation and expertise and also effort. ... I can tell you teams that are winning are not just lucky, theyre putting in the effort to make the success they have around themselves. I think weve set the platform for this coming weekend, theres no question, both in Charlotte and Indianapolis.

Wheaton worked the count full and looked at a low and outside pitch that sent the home crowd into a tizzy. UF trailed 3-0 early, as ace pitcher Kelly Barnhill didnt have her best stuff, but even when down 4-1 after a solo homer by Kaitlyn Alderink in the fourth, the Gators, obviously, were undeterred, chopped away, and won the game with just five hits and those three runs in the seventh. It looked over for UF when Matthews hit a soft grounder to Alderink, the A&M second baseman, who fielded the play cleaning and made a soft flip to Cuyos covering the bag. Cuyos, though, bobbled the ball as she stumbled over the base and Matthew was safe. The next batter, Hoover, hit a soft grounder to Cuyos, but the ball inched through her legs and runners were safe all the way around. The next two batters, Ocasio and Wheaton, walked with the bases loaded. The game marked just seventh time this season the Gators had given up at least four runs in a game. Theyre now 2-5 when doing so.
