Lake City Police Public Information Officer Mike Lee said there is no final determination of fault as an investigation continues into the motorcycle and SUV crash at the intersection of U.S. Highway 441 and State Road 100. The status of the motorcycle driver has improved but were not quite to the point yet where were ready to declare theres no longer a traffic homicide investigation, said Lee. Hopefully over the next couple of days if he continues to improve we can downgrade the case status. However, he said if the Machinist Edna Crostic helped to keep the home fires burning.By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comWith crystal clarity, a local WWII Navy veteran recounted the orange groves of her childhood, a pre boot-camp trip to the Statue of Liberty and watching war planes do the Banana River Bounce in 1944. A week from Saturday, Edna Irma Crostic will be 99 years old. Crostic said shes looking forward to another day of doing whatever she wants to do, whether thats a car ride around Alligator Lake, watching the world from her front porch or watching the news on television. Crostic was born in 1919, when WWI had just ended and the face of the modern world was being forged. Little did Crostic know her own future was being shaped by events across the Atlantic while she was at home in the orange groves of St. Lucie County. Two decades later, World War II exploded and Edna joined the Navy to work on aircraft at a base on the Banana River. I was in the Navy and I was an aviation machinist second class, she said. We worked on airplanes. We repaired airplanes that had been in the ocean. It was World War Two and they were falling in the ocean and everywhere. She called the rough landing that amphibious aircraft made on the river where her base was located the Banana River Bounce. They bounced when they landed on that river, she said. Crostic was stationed at the Banana River Naval Air Station, now known as Patrick AFB, assisting with work on patrol bomber flying boat engines or PBMs. She said when they were in the water they dropped their landing gear and rolled up a ramp where they would soon be repaired and readied once more for flight. It was interesting to watch, she said. She said she enjoyed learning about the aircraft and she talked about them in encyclopedic detail. My shop worked on the engines of the plane and we just went to work like everybody else does, she said.

By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comThe manhunt started with a panicked call from a woman who locked herself in a gas station bathroom for fear of her own brother, then led authorities to a shallow grave in Suwannee County and ended with an arrest in a small town south of Gainesville. Authorities on Wednesday morning arrested 35-yearold Rueben Portillo Gutierrez on suspicion of murdering 32-year-old Delia Cruz near Wellborn. Cruzs family reported her missing around 11 a.m. Monday, said Suwannee County Sheriff Sam St. John. Cruz and Gutierrez lived together near 41st Road. Deputies questioned Gutierrez and Cruzs sister at the house on Monday and brought in a K9 unit to investigate, St. John said. On Tuesday, investigators were getting ready to visit the house again and conduct another search when Gutierrezs sister called SCSO from a Chevron station near Micanopy in Alachua County. She locked herself in a bathroom after Gutierrez reportedly confessed to her that he killed Cruz, St. John said. She was scared of him, St. John said. By the time authorities got there, Gutierrez had fled on foot. Around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, investigators found a suspicious spot on the ground near a stand of pines about a quarter of a mile from Cruzs home. The dirt was disturbed, St. John said. Looked like he put some leaves on it for camouflage. After obtaining a search warrant, investigators started digging and found a body around 7 p.m. The body matched Cruzs description and was taken to the medical examiner in Tallahassee for a positive identification and to determine the cause of death. Multiple agencies assisted in the search for Gutierrez, but it was a Jacksonville Sheriffs Office K9 team that ultimately found him Wednesday morning. Gutierrez was booked into the Alachua County jail. St. John said Gutierrez had been trying to hide in abandoned houses. So they started just going door to door, St. John said. Went to one abandoned house, found him hiding inside. St. John theorized that Gutierrez and Cruz were in the process of splitting up. I think she may have been wanting to see someone else, he said. Gutierrez faced a similar situation with a previous girlfriend, whom he sexually assaulted, stabbed and left for dead, St. John said. The woman in that case survived. In 2007, Gutierrez received a 10-year prison sentence Marion County for sexual battery and a 15-year sentence for attempted murder, according to the Florida Department of Corrections. He was released in December 2017. 7a 1p 7p 1a 6a LAKE CITY ALMANAC SUN MOON UV INDEX EXTREME: 10 minutes to burn T odays ultra-violet radiation risk for the ar ea on a scale fr om 0 to 10+.

Oh, I did all kinds of things. At the time her husband, Earl Edward Crostic, was a machinist first class and worked in the same shop. After joining the Navy on July 8, 1943 she was taken from her home in the orange groves to upstate New York. They sent me to New York and thats where I was in boot camp, Crostic said. She told stories from that time. I met this sailor going up to New York and he kept in touch with us. He took Edna and a few of her friends on his boat to the Statue of Liberty where she said they had a laugh at the signs that read steps to the head, in reference to the terms slang usage as a restroom. After a brief stint in Memphis and Oklahoma the Navy stationed her back home where she remained throughout the rest of her military career ending in 1945. I enjoyed it they sent me to school and I found out all about airplanes. She later married, had a son and they lived in Orlando for some time. Then she said she they moved to Utah where she worked keeping genealogy records that were kept in the arid mountain climate to aid in their preservation. Keeping up with world affairs is a habit she still keeps. She said one of her favorite activities is watching the news. Thats where I get my information and that keeps me going, she said. Her days start early with only black coffee and no sugar and breakfast of a fried egg, toast and a bowl of corn flakes. Her independence is afforded through a compatriot she met during her 14-year stay at The Dom or Lake City VAs Veterans Domiciliary. William Flat Top Davis, from Pittsburgh, lived at the domicile for four years and now the two share a rental home in downtown Lake City. He was an aviation electrician in the Navy and Air Force during the Vietnam War. The two developed a plan for their independence and carried it out while in the domicile. It is paramount in their living arrangement. Davis helps care for Crostic, and Crostic tells him her stories of which hes become an archivist of sorts. At almost 99, though, she said shed been given a clean bill of health from VA doctors. She said she likes the local VA services. I have never been treated any better than the VA here. Im Ms. Edna over there. As for her birthday, Crostic said shes looking forward to another day of independence, another drive, another view from her porch and and maybe some TV in her down time. We have the nicest place to live, she said. I never even thought about it but we do have a nice place to live.

The internet so rarely surprises anymore. Recently when I tried to view my Amazon wish list, a Jack Russell terrier appeared, along with the message, Sorry, something went wrong on our end. When I tried to log in anew, two collies named Butters and Marge showed up with the same message. My Chromebook has a similarly quirky way of telling me things arent working: It displays a dinosaur that looks like it was DOS coded, its beady eye winking at me until it reconnects to WiFi. Google offers a cheeky Aw Snap! message when pages wont load. Cute. It disarms. It mollifies. And it is all over the web. Handsome couples roughhouse with their chocolate lab on your banks home page. Adorable freckled children being tended to by kind doctors pop up on your healthcare portal. Theres a good reason for this; even as the internet has become faster and more functional, our patience for errors or slowdowns has thinned. But its hard to get mad at cute. In the dial-up days of the early s, the internet was a narrative of failure: perpetually dropped cellphone calls, a dial tone that failed to squawk its way into connectivity, multiple daily mainframe reboots, lost data. No one sent pictures of Weimaraners to quell our frayed nerves. But as we skitter toward the Singularity, innovation apathy has crept in. Even though we carry in our pockets smartphones that eclipse the processing power of the NASA mainframe that put a man on the moon, we silently curse the fact that calls are still dropped, texts go undelivered, and that voice transcription mistakenly auto-corrects our expletives. According to a recent study by Pew Research Center, 25 percent of all U.S. adults are constantly online and 77 percent of all Americans go online multiple times a day. With this kind of immersive mind-meld in full effect, our attention spans dry up and the glitches become harder to bear. In his bestselling book The Shallows, Nicholas Carr posits that as technology provides ever-more stimulation, we find ourselves panicked by dead air. A 404 Error page isnt a comforting notification or a useful alert. Its a crisis. Theres nothing for us to click or read or buy, and we dont know how to handle it. We have become impatient children online, and so companies treat us that way. Amazon and Google play the role of avuncular tech giants, reassuringly patting our hand and showing us cute puppies. There are far more serious things for us to worry about, of course Cambridge Analyticas Facebook swipe, for one. But no one is thinking about massive data theft when they are trying and failing to oneclick dog food on Amazon. At some point we all confront road rage on the information superhighway, and although I wish the web would be more adult about it, Ill concede that the fault lies with our own twitchy, grasping fingers.

You can see all the details in a story on todays front page. The big draw, as always, is blueberries. Blueberries in every form imaginable. Pancakes, pies and everything in between. But theres lots more to do than just eat. More than 100 vendors will offer up arts and crafts of all kinds. An automotive show, featuring classic cars and trucks, is planned. An animal show. And all the entertainment you can stand in the form of live bands. The festival is always great, but this one, the silver one, promises to be something really special. Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY TODAY IN HISTORY On this date In 1790, President George Washington signed into law the first U.S. copyright act. In 1889, some 2,200 people in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, perished when the South Fork Dam collapsed, sending 20 million tons of water rushing through the town. In 1916, during World War I, British and German fleets fought the naval Battle of Jutland off Denmark; there was no clear-cut victor, although the British suffered heavier losses. In 1935, movie studio 20th Century Fox was created through a merger of the Fox Film Corp. and Twentieth Century Pictures. In 1949, former State Department official and accused spy Alger Hiss went on trial in New York, charged with perjury (the jury deadlocked, but Hiss was convicted in a second trial). In 1962, former Nazi official Adolf Eichmann was hanged in Israel a few minutes before midnight for his role in the Holocaust. In 1970, a magnitude 7.9 earthquake in Peru claimed an estimated 67,000 lives. In 1977, the Trans-Alaska oil pipeline, three years in the making despite objections from environmentalists and Alaska Natives, was completed. (The first oil began flowing through the pipeline 20 days later; today the pipeline carries an average of 1.8 million barrels of oil a day, according to the Alaska Public Lands Information Centers website.) In 1985, 88 people were killed, more than 1,000 injured, when 41 tornadoes swept through parts of Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York and Ontario, Canada, during an 8-hour period. In 1994, the United States announced it was no longer aiming long-range nuclear missiles at targets in the former Soviet Union. In 2005, breaking a silence of 30 years, former FBI official W. Mark Felt stepped forward as Deep Throat, the secret Washington Post source during the Watergate scandal. Cute internet tranquilizers Dont squash our Junior MintsWe are trying to imagine the outrage that gripped Paige Stemm when she opened a box of Junior Mints and found that it was not filled to the brim with the luscious peppermint-filled dark chocolate buttons. Oh, the soul-crushing disappointment! Did Ms. Stemm complain to the management at Walgreens, where she paid about $1 for the box? Did she fire off an angry tweet or email to the company, shaming its owners with her discovery of the too-empty (in her opinion) box? Did she reflect that perhaps it was just as well that the box wasnt full, since shed likely wolf down the Junior Mints and imagine how many more calories shed have to regret later? We dont know. What did happen: Stemm took her grievance to court. Her lawyers claim that the Junior Mint box is misleading, deceptive and unlawful conduct of the mint-maker, Chicago-based Tootsie Roll Industries. They have created this oversized theater box, and it misleads consumers because consumers believe theyre getting more candy when they purchase a box of Junior Mints than theyre actually getting, says attorney Christopher Moon, who seeks undisclosed damages and an order that Tootsie Roll either fill the box more or reduce the size of the packaging. The case is scheduled for an initial hearing Thursday. Yes, some lawyers have discovered a tasty line of business. Federal class-action lawsuits related to whats called slack fill in food packaging air space in laymans terms have surged, according to a post on americanbar.org. And its not just Junior Mints and other candy in the crosshairs. These suits challenge other manufacturers, including pharmaceutical, food and consumer products companies. Many companies respond tartly that allowing air space in packages can protect the product, preventing, for instance, a potato chip demolition derby in a jostled bag. Junior Mints lawyers argue that breathing room in the box protects the candy. Moon asserts that too much space actually can increase the chances that the candies will be damaged because they move around quite a bit inside the hard cardboard box. Well leave the legal merits of these arguments to a judge. But is there anyone in America who doesnt know that their boxes of candy, cereal and other products arent necessarily filled to the brim? Or that you could jiggle the candy box to determine how much is inside? Or that you could read the contents weight on the label? Or that you could reflect that youve bought Junior Mints (or whatever your favorite candy) for years now, so wheres the surprise? Beyond that, our sympathies lie squarely with ... the mints. As dedicated candy aficionados, we indignantly oppose any packaging change that could damage them. So shake the box, candy neophytes, if you feel compelled to determine how full it is. But gently, gently. When the green-and-white box opens, when the scent of chocolate mingled with mint wafts up, Junior Mint devotees want to pluck out perfect pearls not a congealed mass of bruised, squashed disks Chicago Tribune Marc Weingarten is the author of Thirsty: William Mulholland, California Water and the Real Chinatown.

The teachers recognized must have taught English Language Arts (grades 4-10), mathematics (grades 4-8) or algebra (grades 8-9). We know about the positive impact teaching has on student outcomes. With this knowledge comes the opportunity to celebrate successes and to support all educators in their journey to become more effective in the classroom. That starts by recognizing our Columbia County Schools High Impact teachers. Each of these teachers is to be commended for having a positive impact on student learning and growth. All of us recognize that teaching is exceptionally hard work, and it is yielding positive results as our students continue to make progress, said Volunteer/Marketing Coordinator Dianna Swisher. Superintendent Lex Carswell also spoke to the role these educators play. We are truly fortunate to have so many exceptional teachers within our district, he said. Our teachers expand minds, inspire greatness, and make a positive impact every day. We are very proud to have 28 of our teachers recognized as high-impact by the state. Congratulations and thank you to all of our high-impact teachers.

MEYER/Bay Area News Group/TNSThe Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry (30) and Kevin Durant (35) high-five against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the second quarter of Game 5 of the 2017 NBA Finals. SERIES continued on 5BBy JANIE McCAULEYAssociated PressOAKLAND, Calif. Cleveland and Golden State were stressed and stretched to their limits in the conference finals this time around, leaving little time to recoup and prepare for their latest showdown in the NBA Finals. Splintered is how Stephen Curry described what he feared could happen in the second quarter of Game 7 at Houston, with the Warriors pushed to the brink by the Rockets. So, Golden State held a serious team chat and got it together at last. LeBron James willed his Cavaliers back to the big stage with another spectacular performance against Boston. It was a special moment for us. And I think one that well look back, if we get the job done over these next two weeks, where, again, as an appreciation of all that goes into winning a championship, Curry said Wednesday, and doing it by committee and making sure every guy, whether youre playing well or not, or things are going your way or not, that we all bring something to the fold that have gotten us to four straight Finals. And weve done it by appreciating everybody thats a part of that group. I think that two and a half minutes was The road to Round 4 for the Cavaliers and Warriors was anything but easy.Oh, come on! Again! Only in a two-team league does this happen, Cleveland and Golden State meeting for a fourth straight year. Sheesh. Not the ideal series for me, and many others, but I must say, theres something fulfilling about The Series That Wont Die. Many of us predicted this eventual meeting, and most agree, were equally disappointed and happy to see it happen. Another Cleveland-Golden State championship series reminds of my moms homemade spaghetti routine, painfully predictable, yet always delivers instant gratification. It just never gets old, no matter how many times. So basically LeBron James is the Barilla sauce, Stephen Curry is the buttery Angel Hair pasta while Kevin Durant (meatballs) and Klay Thompson (parmesan cheese) complement the savory flavor beautifully. Its the series of this generation. The annual clash between these two champion teams has been made redundant, but nonetheless its always a classic just like moms spaghetti. So who wins the series? You guessed it, Golden State. Chef Curry will continue to dish out his three-What LeBron James has done this postseason is nothing short of miraculous. Somehow, with a mediocre cast, James has taken the Cleveland Cavaliers back to the NBA Finals for Round 4 with the Golden State Warriors. And he did it no less with a roster that was overhauled at the trade deadline, despite getting little to no help from the newcomers throughout the Cavaliers playoff run. James is averaging 34 points per game this postseason. The next highest on the team? Kevin Love at 13.9, whos been on the team since 2015. No other Cavalier is even averaging double digits, despite Cleveland trading for George Hill, Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance and Rodney Hood at the deadline. The quartet is only averaging 24.1 points per game combined in the playoffs, only inflated because of Hills 9.8. Meanwhile, Cleveland traded away a promising piece in Isaiah Thomas and a future Hall of Famer in Dwyane Wade, who still showed in these same playoffs that he can summon greatness on any given night.

Clifford who spent the last five seasons as coach of the Charlotte Hornets was an assistant coach on Stan Van Gundys Magic staff for five years, including during the teams most recent playoff run in 2012. Clifford is replacing Frank Vogel, who was let go after two seasons. Clifford, who missed 21 games this past season while dealing with severe headaches brought on by sleep deprivation, was fired by Charlotte at the end of this season after going 196-214. NBA76ers exec accused of trashing others anonymously on TwitterBy DAN GELSTONAssociated PressPHILADELPHIA The Philadelphia 76ers are investigating whether team president Bryan Colangelo used a variety of Twitter accounts to anonymously trash some of his own players and fellow executives and defend himself against criticism from fans and the sports media. The allegations, reported Tuesday by the sports website The Ringer raised questions about Colangelos future and that of the NBA team itself, a rising franchise heading into perhaps its most important summer ever as it tries to attract free agents to contend for championships. The five Twitter accounts under suspicion took aim at Philadelphia players Joel Embiid and Markelle Fultz, former Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie, Toronto Raptors executive Masai Ujiri and former Sixers players Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel, according to The Ringer. Among other things, the user or users of the accounts complained that Embiid, the 24-year-old All-Star center, was playing like a toddler having tantrums and was a bit lazy, selfish and acting like a tool. The user of one of the accounts claimed to know Colangelo and described him more than once as a class act. The tweets also raised the question of whether Colangelo used the anonymous accounts to divulge team strategy and details about players medical conditions. Colangelo acknowledged using one of the accounts to monitor the NBA industry and other current events but said he wasnt familiar with the four others. The allegations are serious and we have commenced an independent investigation into the matter, the Sixers said Wednesday in a statement. We will report the results of that investigation as soon as it is concluded. Embiid, Phillys franchise star, made a few wisecracks about the furor for his 1.4 million Twitter followers before standing up for Colangelo. All jokes asides I dont believe the story, he tweeted. That would be just insane. The Ringer said it had been monitoring the accounts since February, when it received an anonymous tip. It said it found numerous connections among the accounts that suggested the same person was behind them. The Ringer said it initially asked the Sixers about just two of the accounts, and the same day the three others were suddenly made private. For the Sixers, the first order of business is determining whether the accounts are, in fact, Colangelos. The Sixers had at least 20 impostor accounts shut down this season with people pretending to be Colangelo, a person familar with the investigation told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the probe is not over. If the investigation shows that Colangelo is in any way connected to the accounts, the organizations reputation would be heavily damaged as it tries to chase big free agents like LeBron James, Paul George or other All-Stars. Colangelo, the son of longtime sports executive Jerry Colangelo, was hired as president of basketball operations in 2016 after Hinkie abruptly resigned. Hinkie was the architect behind what the team calls The Process the long-term tearing down and rebuilding of the Sixers. Colangelo previously served as Raptors general manager. He lost his job there after Toronto missed the playoffs for the fifth consecutive season, and Ujiri took over basketball operations. According to The Ringer, one of the Twitter accounts it connected to Colangelo bristled at the suggestion that Hinkie deserved credit for the Sixers turnaround. BC has done nothing but clean up hinkies mess, the account user wrote in January 2017, referring to Colangelo. Another post lamented that Ujiri hadnt done anything to make the Raptors better. Colangelo has been blamed by Philly fans for the so-far disastrous deal that brought Fultz to the Sixers. One of the accounts that The Ringer linked to Colangelo blamed Fultzs poor performance on his longtime trainer and his so called mentor/father figure. Colangelo was likewise criticized when Noel was sent to the Dallas Mavericks in 2017. The Twitter accounts defended the trade, describing Noel as a selfish punk who was behaving like a vulture and was bad for locker room. Bc is class act not a bad guy, the Twitter user added.YONG KIM/Philadelphia Daily News/TNSPhiladelphia 76ers President of Basketball Operations Bryan Colangelo points toward first-overall selection Markelle Fultz at the teams training complex on June 23, 2017 in Camden, N.J. From staff reportsTROY, Ala. Troy senior Deontae Crumitie has been named to the Rimington Trophy Watch List, the Boomer Esiason Foundation announced Wednesday afternoon. The Rimington Trophy is presented annually to the nations top center. Crumitie, a native of Lake City, earned All-Sun Belt Second Team honors last season as the leader on Troys offensive front that finished 12th nationally in fewest sacks allowed. A three-year starter for the Trojans, Crumitie has started 25 consecutive games and 31 total games in his career. He allowed just one sack in more than 700 snaps in Troys Sun Belt Conference championship season and graded out at 90 percent or better in seven different contests. Crumitie was credited with three great blocks and two knockdowns in Troys victory at LSU. Crumitie is one of 27 repeat selections to the Rimington Trophy Watch List and is one of just 57 total players on the list (one of two from the Sun Belt). He earned All-Sun Belt Preseason First Team honors from Athlon Sports earlier this month. The Trojans set a school FBS record with 11 wins en route to their sixth Sun Belt Conference championship and a New Orleans Bowl title in 2017. Troys 21 victories over the past two seasons are the eighth most in the country and the Trojans will carry the nations fourth-longest active winning streak of seven games into the season opener against Boise State.More offers for CHS rising seniorsColumbia wide receivers T.J.

LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, MAY 31, 2018 3B CIPHER DEAR ABBY: My granddaughter, Emily, is 13. I have been very involved with her all her life. My daughter, Ginger, is divorced and has had a boyfriend, Greg, for about three years, but there has been no talk of marriage. Gregs mother has told Emily to call her Grandma. Emily is OK with that, but it hurt my feelings, Abby. I feel that Gregs mother should realize shes using a title thats not hers. I realize shes trying to make Emily feel like part of their family, but to me, this is MY title, not hers. She has known Emily for three years, and while shes nice to her, Im the one who has been doing grandma duties for 12 years -not her. To me, she should be called something special but not Grandma. How do I cope with this? Shouldnt the other grandma have realized shes pushing herself into the position of the real grandma? -HURT GRANDMA IN CALIFORNIA DEAR HURT: You are taking this too personally. If Gregs mother wasnt hoping her son would marry your daughter, she would not be embracing Emily the way she has. Your granddaughter does not love this woman more than she does you. Whether Gregs mother should realize shes treading on thin ice is something I cannot conjecture. However, Im sure she didnt do this to annoy you. If you bring this up with her, you WILL annoy HER, which will likely annoy her son and your daughter, so I advise against it. Im betting that eventually she will become an official grandma -however, if that doesnt happen, your problem will be solved because shell be history. DEAR ABBY: My hus bands horrible sisters have invited themselves to our home in Florida. They hate me. Ones husband sexually assaulted me five years ago. When I had her come and get him (he was drunk), she accused me of making it up! (Abby, she saw it happen.) The other sister has never invited us over for dinners or special events. Shes extremely obese and will break our furniture if she sits on it. We are in our 70s, live modestly and cant afford this selfish intrusion. My husband says, But theyre my sisters! Please help me get out of this. -LOOK ING FOR PEACE DEAR LOOKING: Ill try. You and your husband are not joined at the hip. No law says you must be there. Yes, they are his sisters, so he can visit them in THEIR homes, without you. Nuff said?

Barnhill and Lorenz both earned spots as NFCA First Team AllAmericans, while DeWitt placed on the second team. This is Lorenzs third All-American accolade, while it is the second for Barnhill and first for DeWitt. Since 2007, 19 Florida players have earned 40 NFCA All-American accolades and five Gators are currently roster have received the AllAmerican title 12 times. This is also the fourth consecutive year that UF has had at least three AllAmerican selections. The Gators will gear up to face SEC foe Georgia at 2018 Womens College World Series at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN2 Thursday, May 31.3 Noles also named NFCA All-AmericansHelping lead the Seminoles to the 2018 ACC Championship as well advancing to the 2018 Womens College World Series, three FSU student-athletes were honored by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association as redshirt senior pitcher Kylee Hanson, senior third baseman Jessie Warren and freshman second baseman Sydney Sherrill were named NFCA All-Americans on Wednesday. Hanson and Warren were each named to the Second Team, while Sherrill earned a spot on the Third Team. It is the third consecutive All-American honor for Warren, while Hanson is a two-time honoree, adding to her 2016 award as a member of Florida Atlantic. Sherrill is receiving the award in her first season of collegiate softball. It is the third year in a row that the Seminoles have placed at least three student-athletes on the All-American teams, and since 2013, Florida State has earned 14 total NFCA All-American accolades. Overall FSU boasts 49 NFCA All-Americans, spread among 33 different student-athletes.COURTESY OF UF ATHLETICSFloridas Kelly Barnhill (from left), Nicole DeWitt and Amanda Lorenz were named NFCA All-Americans on Wednesday. pitchers by leading the nation in fielding percentage. Now, the fourth-seeded Sooners are trying to join UCLA (1988-90) as the only programs to win three straight. Oklahoma will open World Series play Thursday against No. 5 Washington (49-8). The Sooners want to approach the tournament as if they are chasing their first title. I think the key is not feeling like youre marked, Oklahoma coach Patty Gasso said. We dont think that way. We dont play that way, because theres a lot of teams out there that could say just with the tradition that they have that X on their back. But we just try to go out and give it our best every day. In other games Thursday, top-seeded Oregon (52-8) will play Pac-12 rival and No. 8 Arizona State (48-11), No. 2 Florida (55-9) will play No. 7 Georgia (48-11), and No. 3 UCLA (56-5) will face No. 6 Florida State (52-11). Parker already has made her mark in World Series history as the ace during two championship runs. She has posted by far the best season of her career with a 0.86 ERA. Lowary was the first overall pick in the National Pro Fastpitch League Draft, ahead of Parker. With a fastball that reaches the mid-70s on the radar gun, she has 72 strikeouts to just 13 walks in 93 innings. The Paiges will need to be at their best if Oklahoma is to win again. The top eight seeds made it through to the World Series. Probably the toughest top to bottom that Ive seen or been a part of in a long time, Gasso said. Theres no easy side. You look either way, its no easy side. Here are some things to watch as the event unfolds:PAC-12 POWERThe Pac-12 had a season for the ages. Now, it hopes to return to its past glory. For years, current Pac-12 schools dominated the sport. UCLA has won 11 national championships and Arizona has eight. The conference won all but one title from 2001 to 2011, but hasnt claimed one since Arizona States championship in 2011. This years event offers as good a chance as any. Oregon, UCLA, Washington and Arizona State all qualified. Conference play was brutal. For perspective, the No. 5 seed in the WCWS field, Washington, finished fourth in the Pac-12 this season.SUPER SOPHUCLAs Rachel Garcia is a first-team All-American pitcher and the USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year. She has a 27-3 record with a 1.02 ERA and has 273 strikeouts in 185 innings. She also hit .356 with 11 home runs and 53 RBIs.ALOS POWEROklahomas Alo is posting one of the best seasons ever for a hitter, and possibly the best season on record for a freshman. Alo has 28 home runs, two short of the freshman record of 30 set by Hawaiis Kelly Majam in 2010 and matched by Oklahomas Lauren Chamberlain in 2012. Alo is much more than a power hitter. She leads Oklahomas formidable attack with a .415 batting average and has 10 more home runs than strikeouts.HOME RUN LEADERAlo is quite the home run hitter, but the nations active career leader is Florida States Jessie Warren. The senior has 81 blasts in her career and is tied for 10th in the nation this season with 19. Warren recently was named ACC Player of the Year. She is the second player to be named All-ACC first team in four straight seasons.HIT MACHINEWith Georgia outfielder Cortni Emanuels pedigree and success, it wouldnt be surprising if she left her mark on the WCWS. The nations active leader in hits just won the New Balance/NFCA Golden Shoe Award as the nations top base stealer with 51 steals in 56 tries this season. Emanuel is following in some large footsteps. Her father, Bert, had 4,852 yards and 28 touchdowns receiving in the NFL. His best seasons were with the Atlanta Falcons. SERIES Continued From 1B

6B T HURSDAY, MAY 31, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER rfntb bbbrrfntbtrrfrffrr frrrffrffr rffffrffffr rfnff bbnfffffrfffff rffftrrff frffffrfr rrffrrr fffnrbb rfntb rf frffrrrtb bbb rfrfbbfrf a special moment for us, and it should give us great momentum going into the series. Now, James and the Cavs and Curry and the defending champions find themselves in familiar territory, facing off in a fourth straight NBA Finals just with far less prep time after each team played furious Game 7s on the road to get back here. Cavs-Ws, Act IV is a little bit different, indeed. Game 1 is Thursday night at Oracle Arena. King James stands in the way of a Warriors repeat, just as he did in spoiling that quest for Golden State and leading the Cavs to a championship two years ago with a Game 7 win on the Warriors home court, where they have currently won 17 of the last 18 postseason games. James never counted out Golden State. Just going against the Warriors in the last three years in the Finals, I kind of figured or thought that they could get it done, he said. Just because of the 18 of a possible 21 Finals games that Ive played against them in the last three years, I figured out that they could make it happen. Here are some things to watch for heading into the best-of-seven series: JAMES SHOT: James isnt ready to make any bold predictions about how great he might be in his eighth straight Finals. Yet the way he prepares, theres no doubt in his mind he will be ready when the ball tips. The level that I can play at is to be seen, but the level that I put into the game and put into my craft is who I am, James said. So numbers and things like that kind of take care of itself. But for me, I understand and I know how much I put into the game. So everything else is OK. NO REST FOR THE WEARY: With only two days between games after the Warriors eliminated the Rockets 101-92 on Monday night, Draymond Green is happy to have an opponent in Cleveland he knows so well. In recent years weve been kind of having a week off, at most, to prepare for the Finals. Its almost a day to prepare this time, he said. So it definitely helps knowing the opponent, knowing, obviously, everything stops and starts with LeBron, and trying to do what we can to make things tough on him, but also take other guys out of the game. The Cavs finished their series Sunday at Boston, so James spent a relaxing Memorial Day Monday with family having a barbecue. INJURY WOES: Both teams face significant injury concerns: Golden State defensive stopper and 2015 Finals MVP Andre Iguodala was ruled out for Game 1 with a bone bruise in his left knee, while Clevelands Kevin Love remains in the NBAs concussion protocol with his status uncertain. GOLDEN STATE AMONG GREATEST: James considers Golden State among the greatest teams ever, and insists each side has earned this. James is ignoring the critics who say this annual matchup might be bad for basketball. Teams have had their opportunities to beat the Cavs over the last four years and teams have had opportunities to beat the Warriors over the last four years, James said. If you want to see somebody else in the postseason then youve got to beat em. worse, and still made the Finals? Of course not, because its never happened. In fact, Im convinced at this point James could have taken any roster in the Eastern Conference and made it to the Finals. Yes, even that dumpster fire in Atlanta. He could have made Kent Bazemore look like Jeff Green for a two-month stretch. James has played out of his mind this postseason, determined to take the Cavaliers back to their fourth straight Finals and his eighth straight personally. Its rather remarkable, if not insane, and his greatness should be appreciated by everyone who loves the game of basketball. Just look at what hes done during this run to even get the Cavaliers to a fourth date with the Warriors: Hes hit two buzzer-beaters against Indiana and Toronto, making him only the second player to ever do that in one postseason, joining Robert Horry of all people. Hes overcome deficits in two series, rallying the Cavaliers from down 2-1 to the beat the Pacers and then from down 3-2 against the Boston Celtics. In Game 7 against the Pacers, James scored 45 points, pulled down nine rebounds, dished out seven assists and four steals in 43 minutes. Then in Game 7 against the Celtics, he nearly put up a triple-double, pouring in 35 points with 15 rebounds and nine assists while playing all 48 minutes. James put together one of the all-time great six-game stretches youll ever see in the Eastern Conference Finals, averaging 37 points on 55 percent shooting 46 percent from 3-point range to with nine rebounds and eight assists to take down the Celtics. Then theres his historic Game 2 performance against the Raptors where James scored 43 points with 14 assists and eight rebounds. No player in NBA history has ever scored 40 while dishing out 14 assists in the playoffs. James numbers have been stupid good. People want to argue that this is his greatest accomplishment, though that might be jumping the gun. Taking the 2007 Cavaliers to the Finals with Larry Hughes as his second-best player was also pretty ridiculous. Plus, the guy has won thr ee titles. Those all trump what hes done this season. Nevertheless, James is still as great as he ever was. Hes now 14-9 in elimination games in his career, averaging 34 points in those games. (For those that like to argue Michael Jordan is better, his record was 6-7). The question now is whether he can summon the spectacular to beat the Warriors. He managed to do so in 2016, bringing the Cavaliers back from 3-1 down, the first team to ever accomplish that feat. But its much different this time as James no longer has Kyrie Irving at his side, traded to Boston in the offseason for Thomas. Yes, some of the familiar faces are still around, like J.R. Smith, Tristan Thomas and Love. But Smith and Thompson seem to be shells of themselves while Love is stuck in concussion protocol, unsure of when hell take the floor in the series. Meanwhile, the Warriors have two MVPs in Kevin Durant and Steph Curry. James couldnt beat them with Irving last season so what makes us think he can do it this year without him? James trying to dethrone four all-stars seems like an impossible task. It probably is. But if anyone can pull it off, its him. You can count James out at your own peril. Plenty of people did so against the Raptors and the Celtics. I wasnt one of them. Now we get to see if he can pull off his greatest accomplishment yet and this would be it, beating a team that may arguably be the best of all-time. I dont think he can but I sure as heck wouldnt be surprised. After everything hes done in his career, James can no longer surprise me. Hes one of the greatest, maybe even the greatest, and Im just here for the ride. Expect James to make this a longer series than you think. PREDICTION: Warriors in 6.

FINALS Continued From 1Bcourse meals while the Durantula (or the Spatula, as I call him when hes playing poorly) feeds on his cavalier enemies. And Lord bless Cleveland if Thompson finds his stroke from deep, bring out the brooms if the splash brothers get wet. But theres one lad who wont let Cleveland get swept, the King. The James Gang wont go down without a fight, so expect George Hill or Kyle Korver to be more than a moving body in a couple games this series. Even if LeBron gives us another epic performance is 50 points per game far-fetched? his unmatched talents wont be enough to win more than two meager games against the Bay Area powerhouse. Because lets be honest, the Warriors have already won the title. They did it on Monday night in Houston, but the championship celebration has been delayed until next week. So Golden State becomes the leagues newest dynasty, joining those throwback title teams in Boston, Chicago, San Antonio and Los Angeles. But will the Warriors latest title run be completed in four games? Five games? Trust me, we wont need seven. Im giving Cleveland a shot. Lets say six games, and Ill enjoy every minute of each. Not from a fan standpoint (could care less about these two clubs) but from a purist basketball standpoint. Its easy to be irked about The Finals playing on repeat, but lets appreciate greatness while we have it. Remember, moms spaghetti wont be around forever. PREDICITON: Warriors in 6.
