SUNDAY RIP, Benjamin Duke Morris Williams/4A +PLUS >> Best of the Best ballot inside 1CSee 4DBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comMike Christian, a prisoner of war in Vietnam, was tortured for making an American flag replica. He made it out of old rags to keep up the morale of the other captured American troops and so they could say the Pledge of Allegiance. Friday morning, Dennis Pollard, a Navy veteran, told the story of Christian to start the 2018 Lake City VA Memorial Day program and it set the tone for the entire ceremony. The annual Memorial Day program took place Friday morning at the Lake City VA Medical Center auditorium with more than 150 people in attendance, including elected officials, first responders, veterans and VA support staff. Mike Williams, manager of government and public affairs for Nutrien in White Springs, served as keynote speaker. Williams, who retired from the 150-plus gather at VA to pay homage to the American dead. TROPICAL STORMAlberto driving toward countyBy STEVE WILSONswilson@lakecityreporter.comWith Tropical Storm Alberto moving northward, local and state officials are preparing for a potential major weather system to move northward through the area over the next couple of days. On Saturday, Governor Rick Scott issued Executive Order 18-150 declaring a state of emergency in all 67 Florida counties as the state continues to monitor and prepare for Subtropical Storm Alberto, according to a press release. Al Sandrik, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Jacksonville, said that as of early Saturday afternoon Alberto was located south of the western tip of Gov.

Despite ominous clouds, the graduating students, with stands full of supporters, celebrated the occasion with a positive air that came through in their speeches and carried them through to the end of the ceremony uninterrupted by the storm in the distance. It lasted just under two hours with light rains threatening the start of the procession. But it ultimately held off and gave way to dark clouds with sporadic gusts of strong wind. An occasional low rumble of thunder could be heard throughout the ceremony, and a distant flash made an appearance. But no lightning appeared and the procession carried from start to finish. The school district had stated earlier Friday it would be the only condition that would postpone the ceremony. After the nearly 150 member student body made its way from one end zone to the next the commencement began with a welcome and introduction from Fort White Principal Keith Couey. In his speech Couey said their time in high school was like a Ominous skies dont deter 146 at Fridays commencement.

Thanks for reading. Cuba. He described the system as asymmetrical, with bands of rain with breaks in between them expected, as opposed to a continuous rainfall. Were looking for bands of rain to come through Columbia County, and maybe some kind of localized flooding, Sandrik said, adding that his office plans to continued monitoring the system and to look out for peripheral impacts from the storm. Also, with this kind of situation we can never rule out the possibility of an isolated tornado. Columbia County Emergency Management Director Shayne Morgan said locally the region is expecting one to three inches of rain, with some areas receiving locally heavier amounts. He also said that the recent lull in heavy rainfall over the past couple of days means the ground will be better able to soak up excess rainfall from Alberto. If youre out on the roadways, please use caution, Morgan said. Some rains may be locally heavy. Leave yourself some extra travel time. Also, be aware of lightning if you are on waterways or outdoors. Morgan said that the governors order means that if the county runs short of available first responder personnel or equipment, it is authorized to go to the state. This allows for the counties, including Columbia, to put in for additional resources, he said. Alberto is now expected to make landfall on Tuesday in the Florida Panhandle. Scott issued a statement Saturday regarding the impending weather situation and EO 18-150. As we continue to monitor Subtropical Storm Albertos northward path toward Florida, it is critically important that all Florida counties have every available resource to keep families safe and prepare for the torrential rain and severe flooding this storm will bring. ALBERTOContinued From 1Aand will instead focus solely on its specialized courses. The aviation academy as a whole is still flying forward, said Columbia County Superintendent Lex Carswell. Students will be bused to the academy during the afternoon for the specialized classes, but will take core classes at Columbia High School and Fort White High School. Previously, the aviation maintenance academy offered science, math, social studies and language arts through Florida Virtual School and history through an on-site teacher, whose contract has not been renewed. The academys main goal is to provide workers for aircraft maintenance firm HAECO, which has an operation at Lake City Gateway Airport, Carswell said. As Florida Gateway College considers starting an aircraft maintenance program that would offer certificates from the Federal Aviation Administration, the school district is adopting a wait-and-see approach, he said. Weve made this change at the aviation academy to have a narrower, more HAECOfriendly focus, Carswell said. Our goal is to supply HAECO-ready employees and following the planning of the future FGC program. Our goal is to align with them. FGC administrators have questioned the viability of establishing such a program at the college, citing uncertainty about the cost and doubt whether the enrollment numbers would justify the expense. FGC is waiting to hear back from the state about whether the college is allowed to use an $800,000 grant from the Department of Economic Opportunity to make a plan and hire consultants who could help search for other funding sources. One of the strings attached to the money stipulates FGC must graduate 149 students the first year. Weve asked that those numbers be changed, said FGC President Lawrence Barrett. We could never do those numbers. If the college does move to establish a school, also known as an aircraft and power plant, or A&P, program, it wants to work closely with the aviation academy, Barrett said. If this is a viable option, we want to work in conjunction with the school district, Barrett said. AVIATIONContinued From 1Apuzzle and recalled how that puzzle gradually formed until the final piece was put in place that night at their graduation. All 146 of you tonight are a success, you never quit and you accomplished your goal, Couey said. I hope you leave here tonight knowing one thing. That most in this crazy puzzle of life, and that is that you are loved by your family, your classmates, our Tiwahe Nation, just look around you, and especially by me. Following Couey, senior class historian Savana Terry introduced student body president Dylan Cason. Cason delivered a forward looking speech with words of encouragement to his class members and an emphasis on their ability to effect change in the country at large. In order for this nation to mold into what you believe it should be it is necessary for you to be active. That doesnt necessarily mean you must go in front of the White House with a cardboard sign or go on Facebook and tell everybody why their views are incorrect, said Cason. Why not become the next Bill Gates? Why not become the next Elon Musk? Why not become the next Lebron James? Why not use your mind and your voice to spark a better tomorrow and a better America? After Casons charged speech, student body secretary Chloe Hencin introduced senior class president Savannah Thomason. In Thomasons address she gave an analogy of their time in high school and likened it to a road trip. The road trip to graduation defintely wasnt easy, it was a struggle, said Thomason. It had a lot of roadblocks, alternate routes and wrong turns. Lastly, before the roll call of students and presentations of medallions and diplomas Valedictorian Jorge Gonzalez gave a sometimes emotional, though largely humorous, speech to his classmates. He called himself a master procrastinator and said the speech he read that night was evidence. Minus all the academics we have an amazing community in this town and we have an outstanding senior class. This class is made up of compassionate, upbeat, creative and highly intelligent people, said Gonzalez. If I was able to write this speech in one night I believe anything can be done... In conclusion the class of 2018 is a powerhouse of creativity and we will work to make the world a better place. Top school district officials, including Supt. Lex Carswell, were present. School board member Stephanie Finnell and Fort White Athletic Director John Wilson presented the students with their medals before they walked across the stage to receive their diplomas. Earlier that night Couey announced Finnell had been in a minor car accident and would be late to the event. Also of note, school district marketing coordinator, Dianna Swisher, said it was the first graduation in the district to be streamed live for online viewing via cameras set up around the stage.146 walk in Fort White FWHSContinued From 1A Photos by COREY ARWOOD/Lake City ReporterTOP: Fort White High School Principal Keith Couey deliv ered a welcome and introduction at the Class of 2018 commencement ceremony.

He addressed the audience about the importance of Memorial Day. He said people all over the country will honor the sacrifice of its heroes who gave their lives this weekend. The one common thread is the love of our country, he said. We honor that by remembering the sacrifice. Never forget what they gave for you, for me and for us. You should always remember who they are. As the ceremony ended, Robert Milligan, a member of the Lake City Police Honor Guard, joined Williams in laying a wreath in honor of the fallen troops as Columbia High School student Garet Dicks played Taps. Following the ceremony many people in the audience meandered around the auditorium thanking veterans for their service to their country. Pollard was the recipient of several handshakes and hugs as he made his way to the exit. It means an awful lot to me to give that speech during this pro gram, he said. It kind of gives you the essence of why we have the Pledge of Allegiance. The (prisoners of war) had every opportunity to turn against their country, but despite all the hardships and torture, believed in the country and serving. Its just a powerful message... Christy Robertson, Lake City Middle School chorus director, had more than 20 students perform during the ceremony. She said participating in the ceremony was beneficial to her students. I think they gained an understanding of veterans and an appreciation for what theyve done for our country, she said.

Forestry Service U.S. Department of Agriculture Ocean Pond Picnic Area Dedicated to the memory of Benjamin Franklin Duke Forester on the Osceola and Choctawhatchee National Forests in Florida in 1939 and 1940 Who gave his life in the Ser vice of his country on June 18, 1943, World War II Plaque at Ocean Pond (Column reprinted from May 25, 2003.)Who, of all American war dead, will you think of Monday on Memorial Day? I will think of Benjamin Franklin Duke and the day my unexpected prayer became part of his memorial service. You have probably never heard of Benjamin Duke. I never knew him. He was a young forester who worked in the Osceola National Forest in 1940. When World War II started, he left the Forest Service to join the army and he was killed in action June 18, 1943, while serving our country. In 1947, the U.S. Forest Service decided to dedicate the brand new Ocean Pond Recreation Area in Benjamin Dukes memory. The dedication ceremony was set for March, 1947. Five Lake City Boy Scout troops were invited to attend the dedication ceremony and all accepted. I was one of five scouts, one from each troop, selected to participate in the formal program. My part was to lead the pledge to the flag. The ceremony was held on the north side of Ocean Pond, and it was there we all gathered outdoors in a large circle on that cool, bright March day. The program began exactly on time. The master of ceremonies looked out over the 100-plus uniformed scouts and other guests and welcomed them. He then began calling on first one scout to recite the scouts oath, then another to say the scouts laws, all according to a rehearsed plan. I was scheduled to be next, to lead the pledge to the flag, and I was ready. Nervous but ready. And now, he said, Morris Williams, Troop 87, will lead us.... I was actually looking forward to my part. I would stand tall and say in my clearest voice, I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America... But then the emcee finished his sentence, ...in our opening prayer. My mind went blank. I couldnt believe it! I was not supposed to say a prayer. That was someone else. I was to lead the pledge! All the scouts removed their caps for the prayer. The group fell silent. They waited for the prayer to begin. I waited, too, thinking, hoping the scout designated to pray might begin his prayer even though my name had been called. No such luck. I had to do it. Mentally staggering, I almost began, Dear Lord, I pledge allegiance to the flag... Then I took a deep breath and began: Dear God, thank you for Benjamin Duke. Thank you for his work in this forest. Thank you for the sacrifice of his life for our country. We hope his family will like this memorial to him. Amen. The caps went back on and the program continued to its conclusion. The other scouts returned to their camp sites and their normal routines. But my mind was still reeling. I worried about my little prayer. It hadnt even seemed to me like a real prayer. I yearned for some sign of reassurance. When you are 14 years old, you find lots to worry about. Miserable and depressed, I walked to the truck we came in and climbed into the back. I sat there alone for a long time feeling sorry for myself. The mix-up in the program was bothering me but I realized I was also feeling guilty. I was thinking about me when I should have been thinking about Benjamin Duke. I left the truck and headed toward my scoutmaster, L.O. Collier. I knew I could depend on him to make me feel better. Suddenly I was in her arms and felt her soft kiss, and her tears on my cheek. I am Benjamin Dukes mother, she whispered. I have felt such a heavy burden since Ben left us. Today, I felt part of that burden lifted. Your prayer helped me so much. I will always remember it. Back home a week later I got a letter from her. She thanked me for participating in the dedication ceremony. In part of her letter, she recalled my little prayer almost word for word. Thats how I can recall it now. She asked me to write to her from time to time. I never did. Fourteen-year-olds dont write many letters. I wish I had written her. I never heard from her again. Recently I traveled to the Ocean Pond Recreation Area to see the memorial plaque. It is still there. The plaque reminded me that a young forester gave his life for our country some 60 years ago, and that a grateful country memorialized his supreme sacrifice the best way it knew how. The plaque also reminded me of Ben Dukes grieving mother and the high price she and all like her have paid for giving their sons and daughters for our countrys freedom. Rest in peace, Benjamin Duke, and all the Benjamin Dukes of American History. Memorial Day is for you.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINIONRemembering isnt enoughPaying homage to Americas war dead once a year is admirable, but not nearly enough to truly honor their memory or the nation for which they gave all. The fallen and we ourselves deserve more. Whats needed is to know what was behind their sacrifice, and act accordingly. Keep alive the values for which they fought, and not for the sake of mere formality. It is because of their sacrifice that America is still a living, breathing thing. But as such it requires constant attention, or in Jeffersons words, eternal vigilance. That means year-round care and then some. Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY On this date: In 1896, 255 people were killed when a tornado struck St. Louis, Missouri, and East St. Louis, Illinois. In 1929, Charles A. Lindbergh Jr. married Anne Morrow in Englewood, New Jersey. In 1933, the Chicago Worlds Fair, celebrating A Century of Progress, officially opened. Walt Disneys Academy Award-winning animated short The Three Little Pigs was first released. In 1935, the U.S. Supreme Court, in Schechter Poultry Corp. v. United States, struck down the National Industrial Recovery Act, a key component of President Franklin D. Roosevelts New Deal legislative program. In 1936, the Cunard liner RMS Queen Mary left England on its maiden voyage to New York. The first Aer Lingus flight took place as a de Havilland Dragon carried five passengers from Dublin to Bristol, England. In 1937, the newly completed Golden Gate Bridge connecting San Francisco and Marin County, California, was opened to pedestrian traffic (vehicles began crossing the next day). In 1941, the British Royal Navy sank the German battleship Bismarck off France with a loss of some 2,000 lives, three days after the Bismarck sank the HMS Hood with the loss of more than 1,400 lives. Amid rising world tensions, President Franklin D. Roosevelt proclaimed an unlimited national emergency during a radio address from the White House. In 1942, Navy Cook 3rd Class Doris Dorie Miller became the first African-American to receive the Navy Cross for his extraordinary courage and disregard for his own personal safety during Japans attack on Pearl Harbor. In 1962, a dump fire in Centralia, Pennsylvania, ignited a blaze in underground coal deposits that continues to burn this day. In 1985, in Beijing, representatives of Britain and China exchanged instruments of ratification for an accord returning Hong Kong to Chinese control in 1997. In 1998, Michael Fortier, the governments star witness in the Oklahoma City bombing case, was sentenced to 12 years in prison after apologizing for not warning anyone about the deadly plot. (Fortier was freed in Jan. 2006.) RIP, Benjamin Duke How to get to talks with North KoreaPresident Donald Trumps decision to cancel his summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is no cause for regret. Going ahead with a meeting that had little chance of success would have been a mistake, compounding errors the administration has already made on this issue. The cancellation is an opportunity to rethink, one the president and his advisers need to grasp. Exactly why Trump wont meet Kim in Singapore on June 12 is unclear. Perhaps hes come to think that the North Koreans were never sincere about discussing a formula to abandon their nuclear-weapons program. In any event, Trumps withdrawal avoids the risk that he might have struck a bad deal in pursuit of a moments applause and thats all to the good. The door to future negotiations hasnt closed. North Korea says it wants to keep talking. What matters now is to get this process on to a more productive track. This will take some doing. Trumps approach up to now has weakened the U.S. position. If the U.S. had shown it was prepared to negotiate in good faith and the North wasnt, it would now be in a stronger position. Instead, South Koreas government may grudgingly agree with the Norths charge that the U.S. is not to be trusted. China will be confirmed in that assessment. Both countries may soon be urging a lifting of sanctions. The administration should assure its allies and China that its still open to serious talks. U.S. diplomats should stay in contact with North Korean counterparts and do the preparatory work that should already have been done. Theyll need to repair the partnership with South Korean officials, reportedly blindsided by Trumps announcement. The U.S., not North Korea, must be seen as the party most committed to a peaceful resolution. So the administrations nuclear threats arent helpful or all that credible, either. Bluster and bullying on trade and other foreign-policy issues are plainly counterproductive. Maintaining sanctions wont be easy, and the U.S. needs friends to help. And when it comes to China, linking sanctions enforcement to trade is unwise. Enforcing sanctions is a U.N. obligation: Dont make that a bargaining chip in a clash over agricultural tariffs. One thing hasnt changed. A negotiated settlement offers the only real prospect for peace on the Korean peninsula. Achieving that settlement will probably require the U.S. to accept something less than prompt and complete denuclearization but something less than that could nonetheless reduce the North Korean threat to a more manageable level. Thats well worth pursuing, and if it happens would deserve to be celebrated. But to get there, Trump and his advisers will need to change their approach, do their homework, and start measuring their words.

Its no surprise he was the first one out before last weeks spring game, a feeling the rising senior deeply missed after an injury kept him sidelined last season. This isnt merely about a player ready to soak up his last season at Columbia. Its about a relentless linebacker whos fighting for a football scholarship, with the weight of his five-month-old son on his shoulders .Photos by BRENT KUYKENDALL/Lake City ReporterColumbia linebacker Jaylen Brown (left) and Ethan Umstead collide for a tackle during the spring game against the Bartram Trail Bears at Tiger Stadium last week. He actually has one college offer (Alabama A&M) at the moment grateful for that one, yet he hopes to add more schools to that list this year. A torn labrum in last years season opener sidelined him for the remainder of the campaign, leaving one to wonder what his outside interest would be had the crucial injury not occurred. But Brown remains patient, never bitter, calmly working on his craft while other teammates enjoy the adulation from college coaches. He enters his final high school football season buckled down, ready to do everything possible to secure the right scholarship. Not just any, but the best one for him and his family.Its going to be a big year. I feel like we can do something really special.

Down to the final strike of the game, with runners on first and second, freshman Jordan Matthews came up with the biggest hit of her Gator career a three-run homerun to send the Gators to OKC. The second-seeded Florida Gators once again used late-game heroics to top No. 15 Texas A&M, 5-3, in the deciding Game 3. UF advances to its ninth WCWS in program history, and have now advanced six of the last seven years. Florida held the 2-1 lead going into the top of the seventh inning thanks to RBIs by Hannah Adams and Janell Wheaton, but Tori Vidales smoked a two-run homerun in the top of the frame to take a 3-2 lead over the Gators. The Gators fought to their final strike in the bottom the seventh inning and it paid off. After Texas A&M issued walks to both Amanda Lorenz and Lake City native Kayli Kvistad, Jordan Matthews stepped up to the plate with two outs. She fell behind 0-2, but blasted a homerun to left-centerfield for the walk-off win. That was Floridas 11th come-from-behind victory and fourth true walk-off of the season. Matthews Kvistad Seminoles headed to ACC title game after 5-4 victory From staff reportsDURHAM, N.C. Rhett Aplins two-out, run-scoring single in the ninth inning broke a 4-4 tie and lifted No. 7 Florida State to a 5-4 victory over No. 4 Clemson in the ACC Tournament semifinal round at Durham Bulls Athletic Park on Saturday night. The Seminoles, who advanced to Sundays championship game, improved to 42-17 overall and 3-0 in the tournament, while the Tigers, who saw their eight-game winning streak snapped, dropped to 45-14 overall and 2-1 in the tournament. The Seminoles jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the second inning on Drew Mendozas two-run home run. In the fourth inning, Kyle Wilkie led off with a single to extend his hitting streak to 25 games, becoming the seventh Tiger in history with a 25-game hitting streak. After Seth Beer walked, Chris Williams lined a three-run homer, his third three-run home run of the ACC Tournament and 17th long ball of the season, to give Clemson a 3-2 lead. Florida tied the score on a wild pitch with two outs in the top of the seventh inning, then Beer drew a bases-loaded walk with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning to give the lead back to the Tigers.

The Tigers (36-24) were leading 10-0 in the sixth Friday night when the game was suspended because of dense fog. It was decided after the top of the seventh under the 10-run mercy rule. The Gators (42-17) were eliminated but are likely to be the No. 1 overall national seed. LSU moved on to face Arkansas with a spot in the championship game on the line. The Tigers scored eight runs in the sixth, all but one before play was halted. Matthew Beck (3-1) threw four innings in just his second start of the season for LSU.

Paul receiving regular treatment to return for RocketsAssociated PressOAKLAND Rockets star Chris Paul is receiving treatment around the clock on his injured right hamstring and coach Mike DAntoni hopes it will only be a matter of days before he is healthy enough to play again. The timeline remained unclear whether Paul might be fine to play a possible Game 7 if the Rockets lost Saturday nights Game 6 and had to return to Houston to face the Golden State Warriors again Monday night. Eric Gordon started in Pauls place Saturday at Oracle Arena. I think hell play as soon as he can, DAntoni said before the game Saturday. Its just not a question of trying to outsmart. Hes going to play. As soon as hes able to walk and run, hell do it. There was no shot at it today. Golden State forward Andre Iguodala was out for a third straight game this series after he sustained a bone bruise in his left knee during Game 3. Coach Steve Kerr said Iguodala continues to have pain when running, so hes still listed as day to day. Its a bone bruise, and those are hard to predict, Kerr said. Until hes able to really run without pain, then he cant play. Pauls presence at Oracle Arena still meant plenty. Hes devastated. He has to be. Were all devastated for him. At the same time, well rally and do whats right, DAntoni said. Hes so integral in what we do and the spirit of the team. And him being here is a big deal, and him being on the bench is a big deal. Hell will us through, if he can. Kerr felt terribly for Paul and others who have gone down. More than anything, I feel bad for Chris. The guy is a phenomenal player and competitor, and pretty much willed his team the last two games. Hes just been haunted by these types of injuries in his career, and its a shame, Kerr said. I hate when anybody gets hurt. I hate when Andre got hurt. I hate to see Kevin Love last night, Kyrie (Irving). These guys train so hard and theyre here and theyre competing, and you want everybody to be healthy, but just the reality is it usually doesnt work out that way. So youve just got to keep playing with whoevers there and keep going. Second-year Golden State guard Patrick McCaw, who had been out since a scary back injury at Sacramento on March 31 when undercut by Vince Carter, was available to play after earlier being upgraded to questionable. He wasnt expected to contribute key minutes given the injury and time missed. It would be a tough spot to put him in, in the meat of the game, with not having played for a long time. But at this point, its all hands on deck, obviously, Kerr said. You never know how the games going to play out. I had teammates who literally played one play in a playoff game and made a play and helped us win a game. So you just never know.COURTESYChris Paul is out with injury. Associated PressGREEN BAY, Wis. The Green Bay Packers have signed tight end Marcedes Lewis, adding another veteran to back up Jimmy Graham. The 6-foot-6 Lewis, who turned 34 last week, played 12 seasons in Jacksonville. He ranks third in Jaguars history with 375 catches and second with 33 touchdown receptions. Lewis also helped the Jaguars run for an NFLbest 141.4 yards per game last year. He fills out the depth chart at a thin position for the Packers, who signed Graham as a free agent this offseason. Lance Kendricks was the only other tight end with extensive experience on the roster. The tight end position can be productive on a Packers offense that figures to bounce back in 2018 with a healthy Aaron Rodgers returning at quarterback. Well the tight end position in this offense is difficult. I think that goes understated, frankly, coach Mike McCarthy said this week. The volume of responsibility is significant. General manager Brian Gutenkunst also announced several front office promotions and assignments on Friday.

S UNDAY, MAY 27, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER 3B Shallow water anchoring without an anchorBy MONTY STEPHENSSpecial to the ReporterIt is the accessories that make a great boat into an all-out fishing machine. Things like GPS units, depth finders, VHF radio and shallow water anchoring devices. The big name in shallow water anchoring devices is Power Pole. Power Pole burst onto the scene just over a decade or so ago. If you go to a bass tournament or redfish tournament, you will see a Power Pole or two on well over one-half of the boats. Minn Kota also makes a version called the Talon. The Talon functions basically the same as a Power Pole but it is engineered completely different. Trolling motors are able to control a boats drift and can be used to maintain position, but not like a Power Pole. A Power Pole will lock your boat in place with a push of a button. An anchor doesnt even function as well. Generally, for most of us, our anchors are stowed somewhere. It takes time to get it out, drop it over board, play out the right amount of line and by then the boat is out of position. Bringing the anchor back on board usually brings with it mud or gobs of grass. Whereas a Power Pole or Talon could be deployed with a push of a button and it wont bring mud and debris into the boat. The Power Pole (and Talon) mounts on the stern, usually on the transom. They function by driving a fiberglass or carbon fiber spike (pole) straight down until it hits bottom. This is what locks the boat in place. One caveat though, a single Power Pole will allow the boat to swing around the axis of the spike that is contacting the bottom. So if its windy or there is a strong current, the bow may drift around its axis. If the boat has two Power Poles, it will not drift since it is anchored at two points. This will let the anglers quietly fish a specific area holding fish. Power Poles are also used on some boats just for anchoring at sand bar to swim. Shallow water anchoring devices have their limitations. Actual anchors are still needed on a boat and are not doomed to become obsolete. The deepest water that a Power Pole can function in is 10 ft. The Minn Kota Talon can deploy its spike down to 15 ft. Both companies make a version for Kayaks and small boats. Cost of the Power Pole ranges from $1,300 $1,900. The Minn Kota Talon is a little pricier with models priced at $2,100 -$2,900. These cost are base costs. Mounting brackets and other necessities will drive the price a little higher. Cost of the mini units for small boats range from $700-$900. Power Poles function hydraulically. They have a pump that sends fluid to a hydraulic cylinder and this is what makes the spike move up or down. The Minn Kota Talon has no hydraulics. Instead it uses an electric motor to ratchet its spike down. Its actual function could be considered simpler since it has no hydraulic lines, just an electrical wire. Installation of a Power Pole or Talon is certainly doable for the skilled boat owner, but its not simple. McDuffie Marine and Sporting Goods sells and installs a lot of Power Poles. I discussed Power Pole installation with Philip Delgado, Marine Technician at McDuffie Marine and Sporting Goods. Mr. Delgado stated just installing the Power Pole is straight forward and just requires drilling some holes and bolting it on. But he explained the real challenge is making all of the parts work together and maintain the integrity of the boat. As he spoke, he was installing a Power Pole on an aluminum boat that will primarily be used on the flats. To make the Power Pole function properly, he was required to relocate the batteries, mount and secure the hydraulic pump and hoses, run wiring, and install an electrical switch, in addition to mounting the Power Pole on the transom. Philip also used 3M 5200 to ensure no leaks occur, stainless steel bolts and hardwire throughout, and used the proper wires with connections. Philip shared it is the attention to details that make accessories on a boat function properly. I agree completely. These are expensive units and the installation needs to be done right. In addition to push button models of shallow water anchoring devices. Several companies sell 8 ft. long spikes that an angler can drive into the bottom themselves. Once the spike is set, it is tied to a cleat or a bracket to secure the boats position. This low tech approach requires no wires or hydraulic lines, just elbow grease. Its not as convenient but it works and the cost is less than $100. Some of the brands are Cajun Anchor System, Dig IN anchor and the Power Pole Spike. Shallow water anchoring is definitely something to consider. Whatever version you choose, it is a concept that will definitely help put more fish in the boat. This is one way to transform your boat into a fishing machine. COURTESY PHOTOSLEFT: Action Craft bay boat with two Power Poles installed on the transom.

Lionfish tournaments remove 15,000 lionfish, including five tagged Lionfish Challenge fishFrom staff reportsMore than 15,000 lionfish were removed from Florida waters thanks to several tournaments held across the state focused on targeting the invasive species. Five of those fish were tagged previously by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) staff as part of the 2018 Lionfish Challenge, a removal incentive program that started May 19 on Lionfish Removal and Awareness Day. This is an amazing showing for the fourth annual Lionfish Removal and Awareness Day weekend and surrounding events, said Jessica McCawley, director of FWCs Division of Marine Fisheries Management. Lionfish were removed via tournaments and the FWCs incentive program, and the public got to learn first-hand about lionfish and what they can do to help at festivals like the one in Perdido Key held by the FWC and Coast Watch Alliance, as well as various other partners. The Lionfish Challenge runs through Sept. 3. More than 200 people have already registered to participate in the statewide Challenge, which rewards lionfish harvesters with prizes for their lionfish removals, tagged or not. The tagged lionfish component is new this year and includes cash prizes up to $5,000. Lionfish were tagged at 50 public artificial reefs across the state. Harvesters who caught the five tagged fish this weekend took home cash prizes up to $2,500 and non-cash prizes as well. All five tagged fish were caught off Escambia County. Sign up and learn more today by visiting MyFWC. com/Lionfish. The FWC thanks all of the sponsors and organizations across the state that helped make this Lionfish Removal and Awareness Day event a success. Remember, lionfish and other exotic pets that can no longer be cared for should never be released into Florida waters or lands.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, MAY 27, 2018 Sports Department 754-0420 Yes, Castroneves can win this race for a record-tying fourth time. Hes been chasing that mark since 2010 and has finished second three times, including last year when he was beaten by Takuma Sato, the first Japanese winner in race history. Castroneves will have Penske calling his race as The Captain seeks his 17th Indy 500 victory. But this is so very different for the popular Brazilian. Penske needed him in sports cars this year so he moved Castroneves out of IndyCar but promised him a seat in the race for a shot at that fourth jug of milk. Castroneves is part of the talented Penske lineup that put all four of its Chevrolets in the front nine of the starting grid. He was the favorite to win the pole but didnt get the run he needed and wound up eighth, right behind Patrick. Her return to racings biggest stage comes seven years after Patrick left for NASCAR. The only woman to lead laps in both the Indy 500 and the Daytona 500 has no plans to race again after Sunday. Like Castroneves, she returned to Indy with a car capable of winning. Chevrolet winner of only two Indy 500s since its 2012 return to IndyCar, came to Indianapolis Motor Speedway intent on ending Hondas two-year winning streak. With the fastest cars in the field, there are Chevys in seven of the first nine starting spots. Four went to Penske drivers and three to Ed Carpenter Racing, which is fielding a car for Patrick and put team owner Ed Carpenter on the pole. Everyone knows she can win her finale, but not many believe she will actually pull it off. Patrick believes in herself, though, and her peers have no doubt she will impress again at Indy. Not enough people give enough credit to her, Castroneves said. Shes not only stayed away so many years from IndyCar, and come back, not only to be in a race ... it shows that shes an amazing talent. She opens so many doors for so many young ladies, young girls, to become race car drivers. Courageous for her, as well, making the decision to stop. I dont know if I have that courage to do it. Good for her. I will try and make it as hard as I can, her last 500 for sure its an honor to be sharing the track with her all the years that I did. Patrick briefly got on track Friday, the final day of practice, but had to take her car to the garage for an electrical issue. It might have caused another driver to panic, but not Patrick, who recognizes she has a shot to win. Shes nervous about the opportunity but excited about her future. Shes also mindful of what shes meant to racing, those she has inspired and what her final trip around Indy will mean to those who have followed her career. Making an impact on peoples lives, having the ability to make an impact on peoples lives, is really powerful, she said. What do I say to somebody if theyre like: How did you get to where you are? What do I do? Give me something inspirational? Its my story. It might not be conventional, but Im not. It doesnt even have to be complicated. The ability to affect people and inspire people is really powerful. Ive never overlooked it. Ive never said I didnt ask for it and I dont want it. I honor it and try to do a good job with it. The same could be said for James Hinchcliffe, the driver who replaced Patrick when she left for IndyCar and grew into one of the sports most popular drivers. He had a near-fatal accident at Indy in 2015, returned the next year and won the pole, then failed to qualify for Sundays race because of a series of mistakes by his race team. An embarrassing and heartbreaking setback for one of IndyCars championship contenders and a driver with crossover appeal from his stint as runner-up on Dancing With The Stars Hinchcliffe did not want the field of 33 expanded to accommodate him. The Canadian was uncomfortable asking another driver to give up his seat for him, and he was determined to show strong sportsmanship during this setback in his strange history with Indy. So Hinchcliffe has honored every sponsor appearance, did a media tour to promote the race in New York City and has supported teammates as theyve prepared to race without him. He solemnly watched Fridays pit crew competition in a black T-shirt that read simply: Indy 500 or Nowhere. Even without Hinchcliffe, the race still has celebrity appeal. Alexander Rossi, winner of the 100th running, and Conor Daly start next to each other on the back row and were teammates on reality show The Amazing Race. Rossi had a tire problem in qualifying that put him 32nd on the grid. Should he win, it would be a record both Ray Harroun (1911) and Louis Meyer (1936) won the race from 28th. But anything is possible this year, including temperatures in the 90s that could make it the hottest Indy 500 in history. It will also be the final Indy 500 on ABC ending the second partnership in sports and television history after its 54th running. The drivers arent sure what to predict and have no idea what kind of race it will be. Everybody is worried, but honestly thats going to make it more of race about pure talent of the guys, how smart are you with the tools? Saving this? Saving that? Tony Kanaan said. Its uncomfortable, but I like it. KESELOWSKI BECOMES FIRST REPEAT WINNER ON XFINITY SERIES CONCORD, N.C. (AP) Brad Keselowski walked into the interview room and said, Oh, thats nice air conditioning. Keselowski overcame a humid afternoon and an hour-long rain delay Saturday at Charlotte Motor Speedway to become the first repeat winner on the Xfinity Series this season. I dont know if I have ever been that hot in a race car, Keselowski said. It was smoking out there. Ten drivers won the previous 10 Xfinity races. Yeah it has been a tale of two cities compared to the Cup Series where there have been multiple repeat winners, Keselowski said. The Cup driver has 38 Xfinity victories, also winning the rain-delayed Phoenix race in March. Keselowski won in overtime after the yellow flag came out for debris on the track with two laps remaining in the scheduled 200-lap race. He took off in Team Penskes No. 22 Ford on a restart with two laps remaining and held off Cole Custer and Christopher Bell, who finished second and third respectively. Keselowski took his final set of tires earlier than some of the drivers, a decision crew chief Brian Wilson said he later regretted. But Keselowski benefited from the handful of yellow flags in the final 40 laps that saved some wear and tear on his tires.

Bales scissor-kick gives Madrid 3rd straight Euro titleAssociated PressKIEV, Ukraine With his back to goal but eyes on the incoming cross, Gareth Bale connected with the ball while leaping in the air and sent a scissor-kick arcing into the top of the net. Fusing athleticism and technique, it was a mesmerizing sight to behold in the Champions League final. Rarely has there been a finer goal in a European final, sealing a third successive title for Real Madrid in a 3-1 victory over Liverpool on Saturday. Yet with blunders, injuries and intrigue unfolding throughout the night in Kievs Olympic Stadium, the wonder-goal just enriched this engrossing climax to the European club season and set the tone for weeks of uncertainty. A weeping Mohamed Salah was forced off in the first half with a shoulder injury that foiled Liverpools quest for a first continental success in 13 years and left the World Cup hopes of the Egyptian King in jeopardy. Tears also streamed down Loris Karius face after the Liverpool goalkeepers mistakes gifted two goals on the biggest match of his career. It might also be his last for Liverpool, which was denied a sixth European title by the aristocrats of the continent. When all they should have been thinking about is celebrating, both Bale and teammate Cristiano Ronaldo also cast doubts on their Madrid careers. But while Zinedine Zidane was adamant about the need to keep hold of five-time world player of the year Ronaldo, the Madrid coach seemed far less concerned about the future of the player whose two goals just delivered the clubs record-extending 13th European title. Bale only came on in the second half. The impact was explosive, scoring the bicycle kick in the 64th minute. Five years into his Madrid career, the 28-year-old Bale wants to be more than a super-sub. I need to be playing week in, week out and that hasnt happened this season for one reason or another, Bale said. I need to sit down in the summer and discuss it with my agent. Will Bale get assurances over a place in the starting XI? It might be complicated, Zidane said. But everybody looks out for themselves and takes care of their own thing, and I understand that. Zidane doesnt understand why Ronaldo raised fresh doubts over his commitment to the club. He must stay, Zidane said. He will stay with us. While Ronaldo became the first five-time winner in the post-1993 Champions League era, this was a comparatively muted performance in a final for a player who has contributed decisive goals in the three finals Madrid had contested in the previous four seasons. In the tunnel before kickoff there was a furtive glance across to Salah, who has also scored 44 goals this season. But the showdown between the world player of the year and a contender for his throne never materialized. Blame Sergio Ramos for that, although the foul that ended Salahs final was not the Madrid captain at his most cynical. Salah landed heavily on his left shoulder in a twisting fall after 25 minutes. Ramos stepped away from the scene unpunished and Salah soon managed to step up after overcoming the initial pain. Not for long. Salahs final was over after 30 minutes. Lying on his back, hands covering his face, Salah rose only to leave the field. An incredible debut season at Liverpool came to a crying end. Four minutes later, the tears were flowing down the face of Dani Carvajal after the Madrid right back appeared to injure a hamstring while attempting a back-heel. Face-down on the field, Carvajal knew his final was over in the first half for the second successive season. Of course it was a little shock to the team, Klopp said. There were bigger shocks to come, from Liverpools goalkeeping blunders. After collecting a shot six minutes into the second half, Karius rolled the ball out too casually, neglecting the presence of Benzema who stuck out his right foot and dispatched the ball into an empty net. The immediate impact of Karius blunder was offset by Manes equalizer in the 55th. Dejan Lovren rose above Ramos and headed into the path of Mane, who prodded the ball over the line. For Madrid it was about one man proving Zidane wrong. Associated PressMIAMI When Bryce Harper struck out in the first inning, he stomped back to the dugout and took three swings at the bat rack shattering his bat and producing a trio of angry thuds that reverberated in the stands. The Washington Nationals mood didnt improve much until the eighth, when Wilmer Difo hit a game-tying homer off the foul pole, and they rallied to beat the Miami Marlins for the 10th consecutive time Saturday, 4-1. Difo pounded his chest in celebration and skipped into the dugout, and his enthusiasm proved infectious. Justin Miller made his Nationals debut by pitching out of a jam in the bottom of the inning, and Mark Reynolds hit a tiebreaking homer leading off the ninth. All it takes sometimes is one swing to get a little energy in the club, and Difo did that for us today, Reynolds said. He got guys fired up. Miamis Wei-Yin Chen took a two-hitter and a 1-0 lead into the eighth. He was especially dominant against Harper, who endured his first four-strikeout game since 2016. Harper has 15 homers, but also a batting average of .231. Hell snap out of it, manager Dave Martinez said. Hes fouling his pitches off. Weve got to get him to slow down a little bit and take his walks, get on base and start having fun again. Chen departed after giving up the one-out homer to Difo, and Reynolds connected against Brad Ziegler (0-4). Pinch-hitter Matt Adams and Trea Turner each added an RBI single in the ninth. To come through when its clutch time weve been doing that, Nationals starter Tanner Roark said. We showed it today. Roark allowed four hits and one run in seven innings. Sean Doolittle pitched a perfect ninth for his 11th save and second in as many days.Reynolds homer in 9th helps Nationals rally past Miami 4-1 Associated PressST. PETERSBURG Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash got a lot out of his relievers. Ryne Stanek, Anthony Banda and Chaz Roe combined to give up three hits on a bullpen day as the Rays beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-1 on Saturday. We knew were asking these guys a lot, Cash said. Between Ryne Stanek and Anthony, both of them for young pitchers showed a ton of poise. With the Rays thin in the rotation, Banda (1-0) entered with two outs in the second. He wound up allowing one run and three hits while striking out seven over 6 1/3 innings. The left-hander held Baltimore hitless until Danny Valencia tripled to start the fifth. Valencia was left stranded when Banda struck out Chris Davis and Joey Rickard, and got a grounder from Andrew Susac. Its a little weird but just treat it like a start and just go from there, Banda said. After the game Banda was optioned to Triple-A Durham, possibly to open a spot for fresh reliever. Stanek got the start and retired all five batters he faced, including strikeouts of Adam Jones, Manny Machado and Jonathan Schoop. Roe worked a perfect ninth. Sergio Romo will make his second start in three days and fourth in eight days in Sundays series finale when the Rays completes a stretch of three consecutive days of having relievers starting games. The longtime reliever took the loss in Friday nights 2-0 loss to the Orioles, allowing one run while getting two outs. The Rays had planned to begin the season with four starters and one bullpen day, however, Nate Eovaldi hurt his elbow in his final spring training start and Jake Faria could miss two months after straining his left oblique Tuesday. Eovaldi is set return for Tuesday nights game at Oakland. Tampa Bays second win in its last eight home games came one day after outfielder Denard Span and closer Alex Colome were traded to Seattle for two minor leaguers.Banda fans 7, Rays use a bullpen day to beat Orioles 5-1 B4

Not pictured: Coach Daniel Chittenden Im just trying to get out of Lake City, he said. It didnt long for Browns impact to be felt on the varsity level, showing flashes of potential as early as his freshman season. He exploded onto the scene his first season in the program, piling up over 100 tackles. Inserted into a larger role his sophomore year, Brown rose to the occasion, finishing the season second on the team in tackles (100). With his recruitment heating up and whispers of a scholarship, he was poised for an impressive junior campaign well, at least until adversity hit. It wasnt the only obstacle Brown would be met with last year, becoming a father before the end of his junior year of high school. Hes had to grow up fast quicker than his peers could imagine needing no extra motivation now to do well and excel in the classroom. It changed my life, he said of his infant son, Jayden. It changed my perspective on everything. I just want to do more for my son. I want him to have somebody to look up to. The soon-to-be-senior, who works part-time at Winn-Dixie, has a newfound awareness and responsibility. Just as he did on the field, hes now rising to the occasion off of it, as he balances an uneasy trifecta of duties between being a student-athlete, son and father. With conversations last year, we try to tag something as the motto each year, and it was your why, Columbia coach Brian Allen said. Why do you play this game? What makes you come here everyday and lift weights? What makes you come out here in 110 degree heat during the summer? What makes you come everyday? Everybody has a why; it may be a loved one that was very close to you that passed away or it may be a child that you had, wither you wanted it to happen or before you wanted it to happen, that you have a reason for playing. I think with the birth of his son, he just discovered what his why is. He has a purpose now of why hes doing this, and that purpose is to get a free education to an university and graduate with a degree, which will give him the ability to be a provider as a father. The instinctive outside linebacker is determined to make all that happen and cement his legacy at Columbia in the process. A lot has changed in Browns life since he went down with an apparent shoulder injury in Gainesville last year. But now hes back, like he never left, to the delight of teammates and coaches alike. It feels really good because Ive played with him since little league, just knowing hes back by my side again, middle linebacker Ethan Umstead said. No offense to Marlon (Pollock), hes a great player too. But (Brown) coming in his freshman on varsity, and hes stepping up now this year, too. (Stopping) the run is a lot easier. Umstead anchored Columbias linebacking corps in Browns absence last season. The two dynamic linebackers are back in action together, wreaking havoc once again in the center of Columbias formidable defense. Last weeks victory over the reigning 7A state runner-up Bartram Trail was just the beginning, they say. Its going to be a big year, Brown said. I feel we can do something really special. Coach Allen has been talking about this for a while now, since we were freshmen. I just feel like we got to do something special. For Brown, there arent many better feelings than sharing the field with his brothers. This was evident before last weeks spring game as he stormed out of the locker room trotting onto the field with his beloved Columbia teammates trailing close behind. Allen, who suffered injuries in his own football career, knows the feeling too well. Until youve had to sit out for a complete year and watch from the sidelines, youll never understand that when youre back on field its the biggest sign of relief. Its the biggest emotional high, because you had to watch So for him to get back on the field, I am sure he was more than elated to be back with his guys again.

Lake City Reporter Week of Sun., May 27 June 2, 2018 www.lakecityreporter.com Section CColumbia, Inc.Your marketplace source for Lake City and Columbia A town that everybody can be proud ofBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comLake City has grown by leaps and bounds the last few years, and that growth is expected to continue throughout the foreseeable future. David Young was recently hired as the Lake City Director of Growth Management. His job is to make sure the growth is sensible, legal and complies with all local, state and federal laws. Young recently completed his third week in the position and said hes up to the challenge to help Lake City continue its positive growth. The job is challenging because weve got a lot of stuff going on right now, he said, during an interview Thursday afternoon. When youre coming in on the tail end of projects that youve never seen before and trying to find information to get the project completed, it gets to be a task sometimes. Although hes playing catch-up in the new position, Young has an extensive background in construction and inspections and has worked in the industry for close to 50 years. As the Lake City Growth Management Director Im looking forward to watching Lake City grow and prosper, he said. Im looking forward to working with all the design teams, contractors and the citizens to make this a town that everybody can be proud of and where its one-stop shopping. As the growth management director for the city, Youngs duties reviewing building plans and inspections. His office also handles permitting duties as well as code enforcement duties. In his last employment Young worked for the City of Live Oak, where he worked for close to two years. He said he was attracted to the Lake City growth management position because of the towns growth potential. Before he worked in Live Oak, Young was employed with the City of St. Cloud in Osceola County. He also worked with the Orange County Public School system where he served as its building official for approximately 15 years before he retired. I couldnt stand retirement and came back to work, he joked. Before that I was the deputy building official for Reedy Creek Improvement District at Walt Disney World. I was there for about 15 years. Young is no stranger to Florida and he said his family moved to the Sunshine State from Louisiana in the 1960s. Ive always loved this area up here, he said. I always brought my kids up here vacationing to the springs and I fell in love with the area. I refer to it as Gods Country up here.

2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, MAY 27 JUNE 2, 2018 Name That Company rfntb r nn rr rrnn rnnn rr tr rr rThink you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition. that many of them had the job when their company became part of Berkshire theres little turnover. Still, about half of the new CEOs Buffett has appointed in the past several years have been women. Buffett suggested that the #metoo movement (of women coming forward about sexual harassment or abuse) will be good for the economy. He has pointed out in the past how half of the talent in America has been undertapped, and thinks that women are now more likely to have workforce opportunities. On the importance of learning: Munger opined: If youre going to live a long time, you have to keep learning what you formerly knew is never enough. So if you dont learn to constantly revise your earlier conclusions, and get better ones, you are I always use the same metaphor youre like a one-legged man in an a kicking contest. Read Buffetts enlightening annual letters to shareholders at berkshirehathaway.com. Roger Lowensteins book, Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist (Random House, $20) is an excellent read, too. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Berkshire Hathaway.)A Visa to ProfitlandThe world is transitioning away from cash, with Visa (NYSE: V) likely to be a major beneficiary. The company enjoys a host of competitive advantages such as its scope. According to card payment analyst The Nilson Report, there were nearly 300 billion purchase transactions made on credit cards globally in 2017, and Visa processed more half of them. Meanwhile, the barrier to entry in the payment processing industry is exceptionally high. Not only does it take a small fortune to set up the infrastructure to process payments, but it also takes a long time for payment facilitators to build rapport with merchants and consumers. Visa expanded its geographic reach in June 2016 when it acquired Visa Europe. With much of the worlds transactions still conducted in cash, there are great growth opportunities in regions such as Africa, Southeast Asia and the Middle East. In emerging markets such as India, Visa has a head start, with its CEO recently noting that Visa had more than a 50 percent share of debit and credit card spending in the worlds secondmost-populous nation. Finally, Visa is relatively unaffected by economic swings. Though the company does rely on purchasing to drive the processing fees it collects, its not a lender, so it doesnt have to worry about credit delinquencies. Give it some consideration. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Visa.) rffA Good Idea Isnt EnoughYou can add WebVan to my list of dumb investments. It was a great idea with an unbelievably stupid ad campaign. The company had no clue who their core audience should have been. Their advertising targeted 20-something males when they should have been looking at working moms. Stupid. Z.S., online The Fool Responds: You werent alone in being disappointed with WebVan. The Wall Street Journal called it one of the most glorious flops of the dot-com-bust. The companys concept of groceries being ordered online and delivered to customers doors was exciting so much so that investors plowed more than $800 million into it, when it wasnt even profitable. The company had smart management, invested heavily in infrastructure (such as high-tech warehouse fulfillment centers), and started out serving 10 cities and regions. In the year before it went out of business, the company took in only $200,000 in top-line revenue, not bottom-line profit. The story reinforces the important lesson that a great idea isnt enough. Many great ideas never catch on sometimes because their advertising doesnt get the right message out to the right targets. Investing in unproven companies is riskier than favoring established enterprises. Interestingly, many WebVan executives ended up doing well. Some now work for Amazon.com, which is building out a grocery delivery business at what it hopes is the right time. Target-Date FundsQWhat are lifecycle funds, and should I invest in them? M.D., St. Augustine, FloridaATheyre often referred to as target-date funds and are meant to help you invest for retirement.People are often advised to hold mostly stocks when theyre young and to shift toward bonds as they age. That can be a bother, so target-date funds do it for you. Each is focused on a particular year when shareholders would be expected to retire, and its asset allocation is adjusted over time as retirement approaches. If you plan to retire around 2040, for example, you might buy into a fund that will gradually shed stocks and add bonds over time. Target-date funds vary widely, though. Before investing in one, consider each candidates fees, holdings and performance. (Funds with the same target year can have different allocation mixes.) Keep your big picture in mind, too. You might invest $25,000 in a targetdate fund with an 80-20 stock-bond ratio, but if you hold $100,000 in bonds separately and your retirement is 25 years away, your overall asset allocation might not be what you want or need it to be.

C.U., Erie, PennsylvaniaAYou can deliver them to your brokerage, which can then sell them for you, or you can ask the company what transfer agent it uses and sell through the agent. Sign the certificates first at a bank or institution that can stamp them with a medallion signature guarantee.Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to email@example.comWisdom from OmahaAt Berkshire Hathaways recent annual meeting in Omaha, Nebraska, CEO Warren Buffett and his partner Charlie Munger took dozens of questions from shareholders, journalists and stock analysts over more than five hours. Here are some highlights, paraphrased: On stock buybacks: When asked about Apples plan to spend $100 billion buying back some of its stock, Buffett explained that it can make sense. (Doing so essentially retires those shares, reducing the companys total share count and making remaining shares more valuable.) Buybacks should only happen when the shares are undervalued, though, and when the companies dont have more productive uses for that money, such as reinvesting in further growth. Buffett noted that via buybacks, Berkshires 5 percent stake in Apple might grow to a 7 percent stake. On women in management: Its true that most of the managers who lead Berkshires many businesses are men, but Buffett noted 2018 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

Altrusa wins Governors Outstanding Club AwardFrom staff reportsThe Lake City Altrusa Club was recently recognized at the District Conference as the Governors Outstanding Club. The Lake City Club has 110 hard working, civic-minded members dedicated to serving the Lake City Community. 8,300 volunteer hours were submitted by the individual members these hours include both Altrusa and non-Altrusa related volunteerism. One of the award-winning projects is in its fourth year and continues to prosper and fascinate many. The Literacy Garden at Happy House began in 2014. Happy House is a not-for-profit childcare center, that provides a well-balanced education program based on the philosophy of teaching the whole child. Thr ough various grant programs Altrusa was able to purchase an indoor tower garden complete with classroom lesson plans. From the initial planting day the children were excited to see vegetables grow without dirt! Using aeroponicsthe same technology NASA usesTower Garden grows plants with only water and nutrients rather than dirt. Research has found aeroponic systems grow plants three times faster and produce 30% greater yields on average. BONUS: The children benefit from getting to eat what they grow as it is used by the school lunch program. A second long-standing project under taken by Altrusa this year was Girls Summit. Girls Summit has been offered in Lake City since 1999. This years Summit offered to area 6th grade girls was themed Girls who dream become woman with vision. The girls attended sessions with emphasis on service, art, robotics, and self-proficiency in the kitchen. Altrusans believe that being an example of service and leadership to the next generation will empower them as the future women of our community. Throughout the school year, the Backpack food project continues for the students of Columbia County at Fort White Elementary School and Pathways Academy. Each Friday food is delivered to identified students so that they will have food for the weekend. Halpatter Brewing Company, through Altrusan Holly Frazier, sponsored a Spring Break food drive for boxes to be delivered to sustain the students over the spring break period. Halpatter is now a dropoff point for our food pantry. This project is lead by Altrusans Amy Smith and Kim Nicholson.

He bought it for $2,400, and it needs about $4,000 in repairs and restoration. Together, we bring home $50,000 a year, and I feel like this car is interfering with our ability to save money and pay off $35,000 in debt. We already have two decent cars we drive to work, so what should I do about this? Stacy Dear Stacy, There are lots of guys out there who like shiny toys especially cars. I get it, because Im one of them. But these kinds of things are luxuries, and stuff like this should wait until the household and finances are in order. The family should always come first. Dumping money into this while you two are struggling financially doesnt make sense. On top of that, its causing problems between you two on a deeper level. Im sure your husband isnt a bad guy, so try sitting down with him and explaining how it makes you feel. Let him know what its doing to your financesand your marriage. You might even write the financial side down, so he can see exactly what kind of shape you two are in and where the money is going. Once you do this in a kind, but concerned, manner, it may be a real eye-opener for him. On top of that, you might consider giving him a little incentive to get on board with the idea of getting your finances in order. Suggest that once the debt is gone, and youve got some savings in place, there might be a little extra cash on hand to help get that car up and running. Good luck, Stacy! Dave Dear Dave, My fianc and I are planning to be married in less than a year. Weve both been through your class at church, and the other night we started wondering if we should wait to have the wedding until were both completely debtfree. Would you give us your opinion? Michelle Dear Michelle, Congratulations! I hope you two will have long and happy lives together. To answer your question, I dont think theres a reason to wait. When two people know they really love each other, they should get married whenever they feel in their hearts the time is right. At this point, you shouldnt be thinking about money as anything except an indicator of where youre going. It doesnt matter who got into debt or how, because everyone makes mistakes. But if youre both serious about getting out of debt, living on less than you make, and are in agreement about how the dollars are going to be handled, then where money is concerned youre ready to be married. Many relationship experts say if a couple can agree on four important things kids, money, religion, and how to handle the in-laws they have a great statistical chance of a happy marriage. I believe this, too. And make sure you meet with your pastor for some good, pre-marital counseling before the big day. With all this going for you, I think you two will be okay. God bless you both!

Dave RamseyCEO of Ramsey SolutionsDAVE SAYS Subaru and the North Florida scientistsBy COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comWhat do an award winning North Florida husband and wife scientist team drive while traversing the wetland terrains theyve fought to preserve for nearly 40 years? Whether its sandy white limestone roads in Columbia County, boggy trails of hard to reach stretches along the Santa Fe or in overdrive up mountain roads to go birding in the Appalachians, Dr. Robert Knight and his wife Debra Segal take their Subaru Foresters. The global auto manufacturer took notice and featured them in its May magazine owner profile spotlight. Drive magazine dubbed them a power couple. Knights a preeminent environmental scientist and systems ecologist in the state with nearly four decades in the field. The interview wasnt all about the springs, Knight said, referring to his preferred subject matter. Part of it was, though. However, the bulk was focused on the owners of the vehicle with a highlight obviously on the compact SUVs themselves. He said his involvement with Subaru predated the magazine feature by three years. It came about after their first auto purchases when they learned about the companys Share the Love program, which selects a nonprofit organization to donate percentages of its vehicle sales from nearby dealerships. Knight said they entered The Florida Springs Institute and received a donation of over $20,000 from the company. They asked us what nonprofit they wanted us to donate to, said Knight. They ended up making a donation to the Springs Institute of over $20,000 just from six months of Subaru sales. Though Knights and Segals headquarters lie just over the county line, a majority of his involvement is in Lake City. Knight regularly speaks at Columbia County Commission meetings about local water systems like the Ichetucknee and Sant Fa rivers. The important decisions made by county officials here affect water flow for miles, he said. Knight spoke at Florida Gateway College Tuesday at the next to last public hearing of the Basin Management Action Plan for the Santa Fe River and Associated Springs. On Thursday, Knight and Segal were on their way to Mt. Mitchell, presumably in one of their two Foresters. We do bird camps for spring migration, he said. We hate to leave Florida with all this nice rain. He said he was along for the ride to help Debra in her capacity as president of Alachua County Audubon chapter. Shes an environmental scientist as well and president of the Alachua County Audubon Society, which regularly partners with the Columbia County chapter. Thats her passion, he said.

In less than two months all that will come to an end. After working more than 33 years as a Lake City firefighter, Armijo plans to retire July 1. Armijo, 53, started his career as a firefighter in Columbia County as a volunteer in 1982 with the Pinemount Volunteer Fire Department when he was a teenager. He began working for the Lake City Fire Department in 1985. Armijo served as the Lake City Fire Department assistant fire chief from 2006-2013 and hes been the fire chief since 2013. You know when its time to retire and its just time to enjoy my life while Im still young, he said. Im blessed that I can retire at my age from the fire service while Im still young. Eligible to retire as a firefighter last year, Armijo decided to continue to work for another year. Im going to miss helping the citizens of the city and county when I retire, he said. Im going to miss working with members of the fire department. Armijo moved to Lake City in 1971 from Los Angeles, Calif., as a youngster. He grew up in the area and graduated from Columbia High School, and was hired right out of high school with the Lake City Fire Department. He said he didnt decide to consider firefighting as a career option until he was 13 years old and he credits that discovery to the late Wilbur Murray, who was the Pinemount Volunteer Fire Department fire chief. Murrays daughter, Robbie, and Armijo were friends growing up and she introduced him to her father and Armijo said he saw there was more to life as a firefighter than fighting fires. It wasnt always just volunteer firefighting, Armijo remembered. We played softball with the fire department, had cookouts and gatherings, so it was like a family. It wasnt just fighting fires. We attended church together and he took me to the Florida State Fire College when I was 15 years old for a weekend course. During his tenure as a local firefighter, Armijo has seen improvements in the local department that have benefitted area residents. The ISO rating in Lake City was lowered from a to a , decreasing insurance rates for city residents. Those improvements came as the Lake City Fire Department upgraded its equipment, added new equipment and firefighters continued to take courses in the newest firefighting methods and training. It was very rewarding to enhance the fire department services and how we respond to save lives, extinguish fires and save property, Armijo said. Unlike many other firefighters in the area, Armijo also had an opportunity to rub elbows with some of the countrys leaders while serving as a first responder in his community. During a local political rally, former Vice President Dick Cheney visited Lake City and Armijo was assigned to his motorcade. It was nice to meet him, Armijo said, noting he never even imaged he would have an opportunity to meet the countrys vice president while working in his hometown. Armijo said during his career hes tried to influence the next generation of local firefighters through a variety of methods. Im big on training for the firefighters, he said. Firefighting techniques are forever changing. There is a tradition in the fire service and a lot of those traditions are still in service today. However, tactics and the way we suppress fire and do our jobs is always changing. An avid outdoors enthusiast, Armijo said he plans to enjoy time fishing, gardening and spending time with his three grandchildren and his daughter and son-in-law. He thanked his son, Adam, daughter, Autumn and his wife Shana for supporting him throughout his career. Ralph Bowers was the city manager and Willie Wynn was the Lake City Fire Department fire chief when Armijo was hired. He thanked them, as well as Quincy Dean for giving him an opportunity to work at the Lake City Fire Department. Their support was later rewarded when Armijo was awarded as the 2009 Rotary Firefighter of the Year. Armijo also thanked the current city management, directors and staff for their professionalism. I want thank them for trusting me and giving me the responsibility to do my best, he said. Longtime fire chief: It was like a familyFrank Armijo set to retire from LCFD.COURTESY PHOTOSLCFD Chief Frank Armijo, at top in 2018, with former Vice-President Dick Cheney, and early in his firefight ing career is set to retire from the department July 1, after 33 years of service. Paddles, rafts, and cold, fast waters in AlaskaWe took a mini RV trip, 2 nights-3 days, over the Mothers Day weekend. There were four of us in a 31 ft RV. I was pleasantly surprised with the experience and thought Id have more to share about staying in an RV at a camp ground, since it was a first for me. However, it was pretty uneventful. What I found most interesting was the beach we stayed at. Unlike most east coast beaches in Florida, this one had an orange hue as you looked out over it. We were in Ormond Beach. Ive been to Ormond Beach before and never remembered this. When I looked it up to see why it was so orange, I learned that its because of the heavy concentration of crushed and worn coquina shells. It wasnt as comfortable to walk on either. I tried, barefoot and with tennis shoes on. Neither was easy, even when I tried to get down by the shore line where its normally hard packed. And on my first early morning walk I saw the sea turtle patrol out. Its nesting season and even when we checked into the RV resort, my Mom had to sign something acknowledging the season and agree not to shine any bright lights towards the ocean. I noticed the 4-wheeler as they passed by me and read the patrol label on the back and didnt think anything of it. It wasnt until I caught back up with them as they were staking out a nest. Now that was cool. I asked a lot of questions. They were looking for the tracks in the sand, which once I knew what I was looking at, it was easy to see where they crawled up and out of the ocean, made the nest in the softer, loose sand, then turned around and went back out to sea. This process takes 30-60 minutes according to the volunteers I met. The female sea turtle can lay as many as 50-350 eggs in one clutch, its called, depending on their species. The incubation period is 50-60 days. The volunteers staked out the nest, posted some signage, took photos and logged it. The hatchlings have a low survival rate. If the nest goes undisturbed throughout the entire incubation period, then when they hatch, they still must survive not only their trek back into the ocean but the predators they encounter back at sea. About 50% will make it into the ocean, and another 50% may survive in the ocean and ultimately less than half of them will make it to full reproductive maturity. What a learning experience; both traveling and sleeping in an RV for the first time, figuring out why the beach looked orange and then seeing the sea turtle tracks and nest. Definitely a much different beach excursion than on previous trips. But a good one, nonetheless. Sandy Kishton is a freelance travel writer who lives in Lake City.

Hes 58. Im a widow and have been with him for two years. Earl loves me, helps me and goes out with me wherever I want to go. One problem: He flirts with other women. It can be family, neighbors, clerks, waitresses, etc. He calls them sweetheart, baby, darling, etc. He pours on the charm and even follows them around to help them with whatever they are doing. I am not threatened, but I get really embarrassed. I have also noticed that Earl has no male friends and seems to avoid them. When we are alone, its all about me. He treats me wonderfully, but get another woman around and he goes nuts. Whats going on with this man? -PUT OFF IN PHOENIX DEAR PUT OFF: Earl may be less confident in the company of other men, or he may consider them competition for the attention of women. Or, he may need to constantly ingratiate and prove his attractiveness to himself. Im not going to attempt to psychoanalyze a man I have never met. Heck, its hard enough to do when I know the person. If you really want to know whats going on with Earl, ask HIM to explain it to you. DEAR ABBY: Please help settle a debate my wife and I are having. When making the bed, I always place the top sheet between the fitted sheet and comforter with the finished side facing up. It seems logical. She insists the finished side should face down so that when you fold the top back near the pillows you see the finished side of the sheet. I get her point, but I just dont think thats right. Which way should it go? -SLEEPLESS IN RHODE ISLAND DEAR SLEEPLESS: If the sheet has attrac tive trim, why on Earth wouldnt you want to display it? Im voting with your wife. If you are Sleepless because you are arguing over which way the top sheet should face, thank your lucky stars its not a pitched battle over something more serious. My solution would be: Whoever makes the bed gets to decide which way the sheet faces. DEAR ABBY: When a spouse dies, what should be done with the wedding bands? -PLANNING AHEAD IN NEW ENGLAND DEAR PLANNING AHEAD: There is no right or wrong answer to a question like yours because getting past the loss of a loved life partner (grieving) is an individual process. Thats why you should do whatever feels right to you. Some widows and widowers continue to wear their wedding band until they are ready to date again. Others move it to their right hand, or wear their spouses ring on a chain around their neck. P.S. I once saw a woman wearing a gold band to which she had fused her deceased husbands ring so that it sat flat atop her ring finger. I thought the concept was clever, original and touching. Widows loving boyfriend is also an incorrigible flirt
