This evening, her dream will come true, at least in part. When she takes the walk across the stage, she will do so with a heavy heart. Last year Bells father, Keith Bell, was killed in a traffic crash when his pickup truck ran into the back of a garbage truck. It really means a lot to graduate because graduating high school was something he wanted me to do, she said. He really wanted me to graduate and go to college because I have two older sisters that went to high school and they ended up dropping out and getting their GEDs.

Thanks for reading. Murder suspect awaits transfersaid FRF President/CEO R. Scott Shalley. Marc has the experience and knowledge to make a difference in the Florida House for Sunshine State retailers. Vanns family business, Vann Carpet One, which he currently runs with his brother Paul, has been operating since 1947. He has served on the Lake Shore Hospital Authority and as a board member for the Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce and the Columbia County Economic Development Advisory Board. He is a 35-year member of the Kiwanis Club. It is a tremendous honor to be endorsed by the Florida Retail Federation, Vann said. The Federation embodies everything for which a small independent business like ours stands. For an organization of their magnitude to place their trust in me is truly humbling. I appreciate their support. The District 10 seat is currently held by state Rep. Elizabeth Porter, a Lake City Republican who is barred by term limits from seeking another term. VANNContinued From 1A He never really got the chance to see them walk across the stage with their class. Bells father had just dropped her little sister off to school when the accident occurred on State Road 47 in April 2017. They dont know if he fell asleep or what really happened, she said. All they know is something transpired and he ran into the back of the garbage truck. She said at times the effort it took to do her school work was hard and challenging, in light of when she was facing. Me graduating after my dad passed away is something I have to do, Bell said. Even though I wanted to give up, I couldnt. I knew if I gave up I would let him down. Now, only hours away from taking the walk across the stage, Bell said she is proud of the effort shes put forth in achieving the goal that she and her father wanted her to achieve. Bell, 18, was awarded two scholarships to Florida Gateway College. She said after attending college her ambition is to someday become an FBI agent. Trey Hosford, Columbia High School principal, said it was inspiring to see a student work so hard toward graduation after suffering such a great personal tragedy. To see somebody face something I cant imagine going through, especially at that age shes just an inspiration to others how she returned to school and made her mind up that she was going to graduate and pursue college, he said. Shes done it in a way that sets an example to everyone. A lot of people would give up, but she didnt. Im extremely proud of her for that. Hosford, who has known Bell since she was a student at Richardson Middle School, said she has matured since the incident and now has better focus. The middle school years are tough and I dont think she had a focus at that point, he said. I think the accident kind of put things in perspective for her. When she returned, even though she had her rough days, you could see something about her that she had a focus that I hadnt seen before. Shes a special person to be able to overcome what she did because a lot of people give up when something like that happens and she refused to do that. Bell said she was depressed for a long time after her fathers death, often isolating herself from others. Then one day, she told herself there are thousands of children who are in the same situation or worse. I was blessed enough to have my dad for 18 years because not a lot of kids have a father figure, she said. I had my dad who was there and we talked about a lot of things. I just had to turn the negative, the way I was looking at things, into a positive. Graduating also cements Bells relationship with her dad. She said their relationship wasnt always good, and often they would butt heads. She was raised by Larry and Linda Williams and she said they helped motivate her to keep going. They played a huge role in me overcoming the depression and wanting to give up, she said, noting she also got words of encouragement from Pastor Isiah Shepard and his wife Sylvia. They helped me grow up and put me through school, so when my dad wasnt really there, they were. They always encouraged me to forgive and mend the relationship with him. Theyre my support system. Theyre the reason why I am who I am. Theyre the reason I am finishing school. FATHERContinued From 1Awith Williams, son of long-time Columbia County Commissioner Ron Williams, others who have opened accounts are Republicans Chuck Brannan, Benjamin Robert Leon and Marc Vann, Democrat Evan Tharpe Leslie and unaffiliated candidates Merrillee Malwitz-Jipson and Fred Martin, according to the Division of Elections. Qualifying for legislative races is June 18 to June 22. Vann had raised $54,730 as of April 30, while Brannan had raised $30,375 and lent $25,000 to his campaign. Leslie is listed as a candidate on the state website, though no finance reports have been posted since he opened a campaign account in March. DIST. 10Continued From 1A For the moment, Gutierrez faces charges of burglary, larceny and resisting an officer, records show. St. John said they were working locally on adding the murder charges. (They) definitely will be. Not sure just when, said St. John. Since hes got all the other charges we know hes not going anywhere. Gutierrez was arrested Wednesday after an all-night, multiple-agency manhunt led law enforce ment from the gomes he and Delia Cruz shared in Wellborn to a vacant residence in Micanopy. Alachua County Public Information Officer Brett Rhodenizer said around six SWAT teams from surrounding county agencies and state police descended on the town just after 8 p.m. Tuesday. They had nearly wrapped up their day long search for Gutierrez when they got a tip he was in an abandoned home. It was all of our SWAT team plus at least five other SWAT teams, Rhodenizer said. As soon as we had that sighting we were able to lock down a specific area. We were confident. Thats when Cheth Plaugher of the Alachua Sheriffs Office sent in K9 Officer Huk, who apprehended Gutierrez. Based on the nature of his injuries he got some first aid, Rhodenizer said. We took him to the hospital, got him patched up and then he was booked into the jail. St. John said Gutierrez and Cruz were in the process of separating after some time in a relationship. However, they remained living together in their 41st Road home because of Gutierrez probation requirements, St. John said. Their residence has a Lake City address but is in Suwannee County. Gutierrez spent 10 years in prison for the attempted murder and sexual battery charges involving a previous girlfriend in Marion County, records show. St. John said he believed Gutierrez did roofing work in Gainesville. Cruz was declared missing by her family Monday. She had spent the night with some of the family on Saturday and he picked her up on Sunday, St. John said. Her body was found Tuesday afternoon buried about a quarter of a mile from the home, initial reports show. Gutierrez was reportedly accused of her murder in a frantic phone call made by his sister to SCSO. She had locked herself in a gas station bathroom in Micanopy after he allegedly confessed the killing to her, SCSO said. SUSPECTContinued From 1A COURTESY SCSOFugitive R euben Gutierrez is seen in a surveillance still from a convenience store on Tuesday, hours before his capture in Micanopy.

Stepping out my front door, I realized that the grass is starting to grow, with all the rain weve been having. Im reminded of a few years back, when we allowed some of our lawn to grow, and allowed some nice oaks to grow from seeds that squirrels had buried and forgotten about. Over the years, those seeds became large, beautiful trees! Time slipped by. We didnt realize how big they would get, or how close they would be to our home. When a major limb broke off next to the home, with a crash, we woke up to the danger of a possible crunched home! Risks can creep slowly into our lives, and can become terrible catastrophes! We found some help to remove the closest tree before this years storm season. As time passes, your lawn can overcome you and become a disaster, while you snooze! Its true: The one thing we can count on is change. And as our entire planet changes gradually, if we dont notice the changes, we stand to lose so much more. Your own life can slip by, too. What does it mean to you? It really makes no sense at all to choose sides, draw a line in the sand, argue, and defend your right to be right. Digging in with your heels can be a major problem, and keep you from working to fix the problem! Take a look at our Congress. They sometimes point fingers at each other, and focus on making the other side look bad, instead of looking for constructive, positive solutions to major issues. Im pretty sure theres a better way. What can you do? Instead of taking sides, and contributing to divisiveness and polarization, listen to all ideas, to both sides of an issue, and appreciate, respect, and consider others opinions. Cooperate. Wouldnt it be better if we didnt just base our opinions on our own interests, but those of our community, the common good, and all of humanity? Take charge of your own life, your own turf, and your responsibility as a part of your world. What are the best choices you can make for yourself, for your own issues, for each and every one of us, and for the Earth? We each have the opportunity to offer our opinions, and to vote, and we can help with resolving some major world problems. Maybe thats better than allowing and trusting the government to do it for us, or allowing the richest 1%, or some large corporations, to influence those politicians. Whats good for the Earth, and each and every one of us? Its our planet, and our people. On the community level, and the global level, the same principles apply. How about the Serenity Prayer? What can you do something about? What cant you fix by yourself? Change what you can fix, accept what you cant, and have the wisdom to know the difference! (I paraphrase.) When you make your decisions, consider the many ways and creative ideas of how we could better recycle, reuse, restore, refurbish, reduce waste, and conserve natural resources. Does it really matter, whether changes are natural, or caused by human activities? It may be more important to focus on what we can do to make it better. When we make our choices, we can base them on love: for our families, our planet, our community, and our fellow man. We can look for those win/win situations. Theyre really out there, and theyre workable. Make your own life, your community, and the Earth, the best we can be. Be a good chess player try to think five or more moves ahead. Make tomorrow better than yesterday. Join with me, and lets make the most of what weve got to work with, and make the world a little better because were here.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINIONWise words from CHS seniorColumbia High senior Desmea Bell found wisdom early on, at least compared to some. Grieving the loss of her father, Miss Bell took a step back from her pain and gained great insight. As she told staff writer Tony Britt in a story on todays front page, she suddenly realized her pain could have been a lot worse, and that she actually had it better than many. Its a little more complicated than that and you can review her reasoning in full on Page 1A. Still, thats quite a mature outlook for someone so young. It will serve her well the rest of her days. Thats not to say folks young or old should be passive in the face of setbacks, however severe. If its something you can fix, have at it. If you need help in so doing, get it. But things that cant be fixed or helped should be kept in perspective, if possible. The corollary is of equal importance. Just as some will always be worse off than you, others will always have it better. Keeping score is fine, but dont get too obsessed with it. Keep your eyes on your own prize. Good advice for all county graduates, from one of your peers. Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY TODAY IN HISTORY On this date: In 1792, Kentucky became the 15th state of the union. In 1796, Tennessee became the 16th state. In 1812 President James Madison, in a message to Congress, outlined Britains series of acts hostile to the United States as an independent and neutral nation; Congress ended up declaring war. In 1813, the mortally wounded commander of the USS Chesapeake, Capt. James Lawrence, gave the order, Dont give up the ship during a losing battle with the British frigate HMS Shannon in the War of 1812. In 1862 Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee assumed command of the Army of Northern Virginia during the Civil War. In 1868, James Buchanan, the 15th president of the United States, died near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, at age 77. In 1916, Louis Brandeis took his seat as an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, the first Jewish American to serve on the nations highest bench. Say, hows your weather? LETTERS TO THE EDITORConsolidation: Who will be in charge?To the Editor: There is talk regarding the advantages of consolidating our county government, but before we can approve such a move there are many issues to consider. In my opinion, this has the potential for saving the county millions of dollars. But lets not forget that everything that glitters is not gold. Namely, who would administer this mammoth undertaking? My first thought is our county commissioners, but is that a good thing or not? Unfortunately our commissioners are elected by districts. While our five commissioners do an excellent job of representing their individual district, we have witnessed commissioners not always showing the same interest regarding what is happening in other districts. Our BOCC should be representing the entire county, not just individual districts. Anyone can easily understand that our county would be much better served if our commissioners were elected county wide. But that is not going to happen. On Thursday evening, May 17, over 100 people living in the Price Creek area, C-245, requested that our county commissioners not approve a rezoning request that would change our quiet residual community into industrial! Before we were given the opportunity to speak, the Realtor requested the commissioners not take action on his request until their June 7 meeting. For reasons that I dont understand, the commissioners agreed to his request. However, the board did allow people against the rezoning request to explain their rationale for objections or concerns. Twelve people addressed the board with good, solid reasons for requesting the commissioners help in protecting our community. Now we have to wait until the June 7 meeting to find our if our commissioners will support the people living in our community, or stand with the Realtors. As we move toward the possibility of consolidation, it would behoove every voter to better educate ourselves regarding how we could best be served by our elected officials. Please mark your calendars to attend the Board of County Commissioners meeting on June 7 (this Thursday) at 5:30 pm at the school board administrative building on U.S. 90 West. Come out and observe our government at work. I hope to see you there. Edward Hunter Lake CityWhen we make choices, we can base them on love: for our families, our planet, our community, and our fellow man. We can look for those win/ win situations.

I would like to see everyone vote. Before you do vote, dont just listen to what the candidates say, see what they have done in the past. Are they saying the opposite of what they have done? If so they will probably do what they have done in the past. Vote for what they have done, not what they say they are going to do, we are creators of habit and normally dont change. For those of you new to our area and conservative views, think of why you moved here. Could some reasons be lower taxes, less crime, lower homes cost. If these are some of the reasons, maybe you should become more conservative in your vote. It appears the liberal view of helping everyone has increased taxes and crime. If the liberal stance takes over, where will we move to? Irv Crowetz Lake City


Congratulations Graduates! For many students, this week marks the celebration of a long-awaited achievement, as well as the beginning of a new challenge: What will I do with my life? Some of you have carefully mapped out plans, while others are still struggling for answers. In your search, consider the words of Jeremiah 6:16, This is what the Lord says: Stand at the crossroads and look: ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls You now stand at one of the biggest crossroads of your life. Graduation is the end of a path that began years ago as you left Mom and Dad to climb onto the school bus and walk into the classroom on your own. Now, enjoy your time to celebrate, but always with an eye to the future. Stand at this crossroad and look. At a crossroad, or intersection, you make your decision about which way to go based on where you want to end up. Consider what you have learned about life and about yourself and look for the good way that leads to your future. The right path for living is marked out by God, but it requires careful searching to uncover. The easier path will always be easily found and tempting but know that it leads to a dead-end life. When we ignore Gods map we lose our way. Walk in it. Once you get a glimpse of that good way, dont get frustrated if you cant see the whole plan right now. Start with one step. It may be that you find the directions for the next step on the way. Get going! A tiny rudder can turn a huge ship, but only if it is moving. Be confident that God has a plan for your life. In Ephesians 2:10 the Bible tells us For we are Gods workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. That word workmanship also means masterpiece, one of a kind! God created you uniquely for a specific purpose: to do good works. The kicker is that He has prepared them in advance for you to do. All we must do is follow His map to find them! Find rest for your souls. Of all the things I could hope and pray for you, this is it. In a world full of unrest, strife and lack of peace, having rest for your soul is priceless, and it only comes from being in right standing with the One who created you. Notice that this rest comes as a result of standing, looking, asking, and walking with Him. The continued gun violence we are witnessing here in America has many clamoring for deeds and action, not simply thoughts and prayers. Politically speaking they want stricter gun laws. Taking a step back from the hysteria that characterizes much of the dialogue on guns, I think we should take the advice of Jesus, Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment, John 7:24. Thats right, Jesus commands us to make judgements about things, but to avoid doing so in a carelessly superficial way. I graduated from the University of North Florida where I majored in Criminal Justice. We were taught that crime is addressed by external and internal controls. External controls are things like societys rules of behavior; we call them laws. Internal controls are a persons conscience, a sense of what is right and wrong when properly socialized by the institutions of family, church and school. Sociologists recognize that external controls, with its sanctions, may serve as a deterrent, but they are ineffective at preventing crime. A persons conscience that has been instilled with a proper sense of what is right and wrong; is more effective at preventing crime. This is observable truth. In 1963 the United States Supreme Court in Abington School District v. Schempp ruled Bible reading and prayer unconstitutional, removing from our public school system two practices that encourage internal controls. Some have said the Supreme Court banished God from our public classrooms but such a view overlooks two facts. The real Supreme Court does not convene down here, and mortal man is wholly incapable of banning the ever-present, Almighty God from anywhere. But what that ruling did do was create an environment that ignored Gods presence, and precluded supplication for His aid, and removed the influence of His word on the minds of our school-aged children. The Ten Commandments, the sixth of which says, You shall not murder, are banned. Our children cannot be taught the creation narrative that we were created in the image of God, not because it is scientifically untenable, but because it is biblical. So they are taught they are the descendants of apes, and FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, June 1-2, 2018 w 5A Three steps to followIf most people who claim to be Christians followed these three steps when sinned against there would be healthy communication in personal and Church relationship. Please read Matthew 18:1-20. As we read these verses we learn that the brother who sins against you is also a disciple of Christ Jesus. Jesus outlined for his disciples what we need to do when a brother or sister sins against us. Before we confront the one who sinned against us it is wise to be in a season of prayer so that we are approaching this in a manner of Christ. First Jesus tells us that we must go to the person who has sinned against us and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If that person listens to us then we have gained a brother. (Matthew 18:15) If that person does not listen to us then we are to apply step number two which is found in verse 16-17. It is at this point that that we should get others involved. The Church has elders and deacons for a reason. These men are to listen to both sides to determine first of all if someone has been sinned against. Jesus referred back to Deuteronomy 19:15-21 to teach how the instructions that God gave Israel still applied to them. The apply to the Church today as well. If it is established that the person complaining has indeed been sin against the elders or deacons involved should let the offender know that they have been found guilty of sinning against another. If this person who has been found guilty does not repent then the leadership of the Church has a responsibility to bring this matter before the body of Christ. It is then at this point that the guilty person should be removed from Church fellowship. When this person is removed from fellowship they are no longer under the umbrella protection of Church. This is why the Apostle Paul had to write to the Corinthians not just once but twice. There was a young man having sexual relations with his step mom. The church body was tolerating sin. Paul applied what the Lord had taught to this situation and that person was removed from fellowship with the Church. It worked because the young man repented of his sin. Pauls second letter to the Corinthian Church was that they needed to restore this person back into fellowship. From here Jesus takes an authority that was given to the Apostle Peter earlier and gives that authority to the other Apostles and the Church as well. He gives them the authority to bind and to let loose here on earth. To bind something means to prohibit, to not allow. We are given authority over something on the basis of it not being legitimate. To let something loose here on earth means that we are to exercise authority over something on the basis of it being legitimate. We permit and allow it to take place. If the disciples of Christ would follow these steps that Jesus has given us there would be a lot healthier Churches today.

All of the school shooters were either a current or former student of the school they attacked. If we teach our children they are animals why do we think they should not act like animals. We spin our wheels trying to change external controls like gun laws instead of fostering internal controls that would prevent much of what we witness now. The first murder in the Bible was when Cain killed his brother Able. We do not know how he killed him, but I am convinced he did not use an assault rifle. Maybe we should be teaching our children they have an Image to live up to instead of a lineage to live down. We thought we were wise to ignore God but we have become fools (Romans 1:22), and our children are paying the price.

Parking is available. Ring was born with cerebral palsy on October 28, 1953 in Jonesboro, Arkansas. After being orphaned at an early age, David was cast about from pillar to post. Life seemed worse than hopeless to him until his relationship began with Jesus Christ, Who taught him self-respect and an acceptance of his physical challenges. As a nationally known speaker since 1973, David shares his story with over 100,000 people each year at churches, conventions, schools and corporate events. He has been featured on numerous occasions on The Old Time Gospel Hour with Rev. Jerry Fallwell, as well as other nationally televised programs. David always focuses on an individuals need to overcome personal handicaps and adversities of life. As one who has not been stifled by his physical limitations, he clearly states his challenge to everyone, I have Cerebral Palsy whats your problem? To most, physical challenges of this magnitude would prove to be a tombstone. For David Ring, his coming of age was, and remains, a milestone.

Church removing statue it deems too CatholicAssociated Press A Baptist church in South Carolina plans to remove a hand-carved statue of Jesus Christ because some congregants believe its too Catholic for their place of worship. The hand-carved, 7-foot (2-meter) statue and accompanying reliefs depicting scenes from Christs life have been displayed outside Red Bank Baptist Church in Lexington for a decade. But in a letter to the artist, Pastor Jeff Wright said the art would be removed this week. We have discovered that there are people that view the art as Catholic in nature, Wright wrote in the letter to Delbert Baker Jr. A friend of Bakers posted the letter on Facebook. Wright wrote that the statue and reliefs bring into question the theology and core values of Red Bank Baptist Church, but he didnt elaborate. The pastor did not return telephone calls or respond to messages The Associated Press left in person with his staff at the church Wednesday. The letter said Baker had until Thursday to remove the art if he wanted to keep it. If not, it would be destroyed. Workers at the church refused to tell the AP if that deadline remained in place. The dispute is a symptom of a larger dysfunction in the Southern Baptist Convention, said Bill Leonard, a professor of Baptist studies at Wake Forest University. Almost week to week theres another incident in which southern Baptists portray themselves ... having convictions that look like bias and prejudice in the larger culture, Leonard said. The bias is so deep that they even think they have the wrong Jesus is in front of their church. In his own letter responding to Wright, Baker explained his vision of the art, saying it was meant to show Red Bank Baptist had a focus on Christian outreach. This is why Christ is represented as though he is stepping outside of the building, not just confined to the idleness of inner walls, Baker wrote in the letter, which his friend also posted on Facebook. Under each arm, the reliefs depict scriptural and historical events that we as Christians believe represent the life of Christ. The reason that has been given for removing the art makes no sense, Baker added, because a large sign out front identifies the building as a Baptist church. Instead, the explanation makes it appear that congregants are disparaging Catholics, Baker wrote. I was obedient to my Lord in creating it and after much prayer I must respectfully decline to take part in its removal, Baker wrote. Baker did not respond to telephone messages from the AP on Wednesday. St. Paul archdiocese reaches $210M clergy sex abuse dealAssociated PressThe Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis has agreed to a $210 million settlement with 450 victims of clergy sexual abuse as part of its plan for bankruptcy reorganization, an attorney said Thursday, making it the second-largest U.S. payout in the priest sex abuse scandal. Victims attorney Jeff Anderson said the settlement was reached with the survivors and the archdiocese and includes accountability measures. The money, a total of $210,290,724, will go into a pot to pay survivors, with the amount for each survivor to be determined. Anderson said a formal reorganization plan will now be submitted to the judge for approval, and then it will be sent to the survivors for a vote. Anderson expected they will readily approve it. Archbishop Bernard Hebda said he was grateful to victims who came forward. I recognize that the abuse stole so much from you, your childhood, your innocence, your ability to trust ... your faith, he said, adding that he hopes the settlement brings closure to those who were harmed. Weve been working with them very carefully to try to formulate this in a way that benefits them to the maximum.

By JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comCoaches, mentors and teammates spoke. Plenty of tears were shed. There wasnt a soul in Columbias auditorium that had a bad word to say about Yassin Raffay. Born in Sudan, set to one day become a surgeon, Raffay was also born to run. He ended his senior season with an exclamation point at the Class 3A track & field state meet, medaling with an eighth-place finish in the 3200. But Raffay wanted more. He wanted to run in college. Finally on Thursday, he dream of running at the next level came to fruition. Raffay signed his national letter of intent with Seminole State College in Sanford where hell run both cross country and track. The soon-to-be Raider fell in love with the sport from the start and knew right away that he wanted to run collegiately. The further I went into it, the more I wanted to pursue it because I knew my potential. I knew how good I could get, Raffay said. I knew I wanted to go to a nice college with a great coach and improve as much as I can because Im really good at it. But it wasnt until a few weeks ago that Raffays scholarship was made available. In fact, it sort of came out of nowhere. Raffay was running at his first ever AAU meet at the University of Florida, just Columbia runner Yassin Raffay signs with Seminole State College. COURTESYFloridas Jordan Roberts rounds the bases following her two-run home run in the fourth inning against Georgia in the teams Womens College World Series opener. By JANIE McCAULEYAssociated PressOAKLAND, Calif. Stephen Curry scored 29 points and the Golden State Warriors capitalized on a Cavaliers blunder that sent the game into overtime, withstanding a brilliant 51-point performance by LeBron James to beat Cleveland 124-114 in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night. The game nearly over, James jawed with both Curry and Klay Thompson, then Tristan Thompson and Draymond Green tangled moments later and made contact. After replay review, Tristan Thompson received a Flagrant 2 foul and ejection with 2.6 seconds left. James was in utter disbelief as regulation ended in stunning fashion: George Hill made the first of two free throws with 4.7 seconds left after being fouled by Klay Thompson, then J.R. Smith secured the rebound and dribbled back toward halfcourt, apparently thinking the Cavs had a lead. Instead, OT. Game 2 is Sunday night back at Oracle Arena.By CLIFF BRUNTAssociated PressOKLAHOMA CITY Aleshia Ocasio came through again, as she often has during her Florida career. The senior hit a three-run homer and pitched a complete game to help Florida beat Georgia 11-3 in five innings Thursday in the Womens College World Series. Ocasio gave up three runs and seven hits and allowed Florida coach Tim Walton to save ace pitcher Kelly Barnhill. Hannah Adams had two hits, including a solo homer and Jordan Roberts had a two-run blast for the second-seeded Gators (56-9). I think, the one thing that I praise our coaches and our staff is to do the best job they can and know our personnel, Walton said. We felt like Aleshia was the best match-up with Georgia swingers. Her athleticism in the circle, a lot of things led to that decision. Ocasio improved to 23-7 for the season. It was the 71st pitching win of her career. Ocasio got help from her teammates. Roberts entered the game as a pinch hitter for Jordan Matthews and delivered the homer in the fourth inning. Ive thought about this since I was a little girl, Roberts said. Its just awesome to be able to answer to the call. My dad The Florida Gateway College mens basketball team is holding open tryouts at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday.

Matt Olson, Matt Chapman and Matt Joyce all homered for Oakland. Ryne Stanek (1-1) started for Tampa Bay and retired four batters in his second major league start.

DEAR ABBY: My son Jeff is wealthy and lives in another state with his wife and family. His wife has now moved her mother to where they live and she works for my son. Jeff and his family take vacations several times a year in the U.S. and out of it, and always include her mother or her father and his wife. Two months ago, he invited his sister and niece to go with them. They were very excited, but a few days later he called them and said his wife wanted her mother to go, so the invitation was withdrawn. My son and his wife dont think they did anything wrong, but there have been bad feelings ever since, and they continue to take her family everywhere. How would you handle this? Would you keep silent or speak to them? -NOT INVITED IN OKLAHOMA DEAR NOT INVITED: It appears your sons wife rules the roost. I dont blame your daughter for feeling hurt, because what your son did was insensitive and rude. The problem with keeping silent is that hurt feelings fester and grow. If it were I, I wouldnt fume in silence. Your daughter should talk to her brother about what happened, and point out how hurtful rescinding the invitation was to her and her daughter. Getting it off her chest may make her feel bette DEAR ABBY: Im a 69-year-old woman. I look my age because, unlike most of my friends, I dont color my hair. Sometimes when Im shopping -such as in a grocery store -employees call me young lady, as in How are you today, young lady? I find it condescending. Why is it necessary to make reference to my age? Obviously, they dont think Im young at all. What would you say in these situations? -IRRITATED IN SAN DIEGO DEAR IRRITATED: You are asking a question I receive often. Older women not only resent being called young lady, they also dislike being called honey and sweetie by someone who doesnt know them well. Because it bothers you, tell the person, I know youre trying to be nice, but in the future, please use my name or call me maam. This is something you might also mention to the store manager, so he or she can remind the staff that not everyone appreciates the over-familiarity. DEAR ABBY: Recently, on an airline flight, the passenger next to me put her feet (with shoes on) onto the headrest in front of her. No one was in the seat. Since she had her headphones on, I tapped her on the shoulder and indicated that it was unsanitary to put ones feet where normally a passengers head should be. I got a dirty look for my efforts, and the young woman made quite a scene. Should I have ignored the situation, or said something to the flight attendants? What do you recommend? -UNSANITARY IN THE EAST DEAR UNSANITARY: If you had quietly alerted the flight attendants and let them handle it, you would have spared yourself the unpleasantness you experienced. Thats what I would recommend. DEAR ABBY: I read your letters every chance I get. They remind me that Im not the only one with problems, but sometimes I just feel so empty. I have random bouts where anything can send me into a crying jag and all I want to do is hide and go to sleep. I can be watching a funny TV show and out of nowhere feel like I need to run away and cry. It scares me that my moods can swing so drastically. I can also become angry every now and then when its unprovoked. I dont know what to do. My boyfriend tries to help, but hes at a loss as well. My medical insurance doesnt cover psychological help. Can you give me any advice? -CRYING MYSELF TO SLEEP DEAR CRYING: Check again with your insurance carrier, because your primary care provider may be able to order psychological services for you. If, however, thats not possible, your county department of mental health may be able to help you find counseling on a sliding financial scale. Or, contact a university with a medical school, if one is close by. Ask to speak to the Department of Psychiatry and inquire if someone on the staff deals with the problems youre experiencing. If you live in a town with a college, find out if it has a psychology department and a graduate school. If so, does that graduate school have a psychology program and clinic that charges on a sliding scale and is the clinic staffed with graduate students? If not, inquire if someone on the staff of the department sees people privately and get the phone number. Individuals can also get referrals from mental health organizations. The largest credentialed ones are the American Psychological Association, the American Psychiatric Association, the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy and the National Association of Social Workers. All of these organizations have professional standards and are legitimate resources. I know this is a longer response than you may have expected, but I hope it helps you find what you need because its time to enlist professional help in understanding your mood swings. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take time to do something nice for someone. A kind word or gesture will go a long way. Dont let people who complain and criticize ruin your day. A positive attitude and a kind heart will make you feel good. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The changes you incorporate into your everyday routine should include people who have made a difference in your life. Siblings, parents and close friends will rally around if you need help. Romance will improve your personal life. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A day trip will lead to an interesting discovery that will help you let go of something that has been holding you back. Revise your plans to suit your goals, and dont stop until you reach your destination. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Look for unique alternatives when it comes to social activities, personal improvements and professional opportunities. Choosing to use your attributes in a diverse manner will lead to greater success and satisfaction. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your generosity and desire to help others will put you in a good position when it comes to popularity but may cause problems for you if you overstep your financial capabilities. Dont make promises you cannot keep. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): There is plenty you can do if you are willing to accept change. Learn from those who are eager to try something new and willing to do things differently in hopes of improving personally, emotionally and creatively. Romance is encouraged. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Take care of your responsibilities; leave no room for error. Someone will use any excuse to criticize you or make you look bad. Focus on getting things done and taking care of your responsibilities. Take better care of your health. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Dont let uncertainty stand between you and making overdue changes. Take advantage of any opportunity that presents itself; see where it leads. Someone unique will offer insightful advice. A retreat or self-help course will change your outlook. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Youll be tempted to say too much. Problems will arise when dealing with someone you are in a relationship with. Whether its a friend, lover or relative, you are better off listening first and responding courteously. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A change at home will do you good. Make decisions and plans with the people you live with to make sure you are all on the same page. A team effort will ensure you get everything done to specification. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Push start and make your way to the finish line. Set your goals and dont stop until you are satisfied with what you have achieved. Talk alone wont cut it, but follow through with action and you will make a lasting impression. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): An emotional journey will take you through highs and lows, but in the end, the changes that come about will improve your life and send you in a welcome direction. Get your priorities straight and live, love and laugh. THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Recinded vacation invitation causes bad blood in family Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

A school spokesman says Ball is not in good standing with Florida State University. No further details were provided Thursday. Ball was accused of battery last year, but was not charged by Tallahassee Police. The two sides did come to a resolution last November on protection against dating violence, where Ball could not contact his for mer girlfriend or come within 500 feet of her home or 100 feet on campus. Ball, who would have been a sophomore this upcoming season, played in all 13 games for the Seminoles last year and started the final nine at left tackle.Center Obiagu will transfer to Seton HallSOUTH ORANGE, N.J. (AP) Seton Hall is getting a shot-blocking center for its basketball team. Coach Kevin Willard announced Thursday that Ike Obiagu will transfer from Florida State and continue his education and basketball career with the Pirates. The 7-footer must sit out the 2018-19 season and will have three years of eligibility. Obiagu appeared in 34 of 35 games and made 14 starts for Florida State as a freshman. He averaged 2.3 points, 2.6 rebounds and a team-best 2.1 blocks. The Nigerians top per formance came in the regular-season finale against Boston College, when he had seven blocked shots and 12 rebounds, both career highs. His 71 blocks were the third-most by a freshman and seventh-most by any Seminole. Seton Hall returns starter Myles Powell from a team that went to three straight NCAA Tournaments.FSU NOTES Thunder coach delivered a clear message about dealing with adversity. Donovan used an example from his time in Gainesville, when the defending national champion Gators dropped three of four down the stretch in 2007 all by double digits and then regrouped in the postseason by winning 10 straight and the second of back-to-back titles. I thought there were a lot of similarities, OSullivan said. I think he was really helpful. OSullivans team is hoping for the same sort of turnaround that Donovan experienced. The top-seeded and defending national champion Gators (42-17) begin regional play Friday having lost six of their last seven, all since clinching the Southeastern Conferences regular-season title. OSullivan figures its human nature to have a letdown, especially during a pressure-packed season, but hes hoping to avoid a total collapse. Florida opens against Ivy League champion Columbia (2028), one of two teams in the tournament with a losing record. Jacksonville (39-19) and Florida Atlantic (40-17) round out the four-team regional. But the Gators will garner most of the attention, and for good reason. Ace Brady Singer, expected to be a top-five pick in next weeks MLB draft, is scheduled to return Saturday after missing two weeks with a strained left hamstring. All-SEC catcher JJ Schwarz, a senior and the teams sole captain, remains sidelined with a broken bone in his right hand. And SEC Player of the Year Jonathan India is in a slump, hitting .190 with two RBIs over the last six games. The usually sure-handed third baseman also had made five errors in the last four outings. Basically a clean slate, said India, also projected to be a first-round selection. Just forget about the past and play like its a new season, start over. ... We didnt really battle much adversity this year, so every team is going to go through it at one point. Were going through it now. Its just the cards weve been dealt. Weve got to get that focus back and play like we did at the beginning of the year. The Gators looked like a lock to make it to the College World Series just a few weeks ago. They won 19 consecutive weekend series, the last one coming against Georgia that clinched the SEC title. Little has gone right since. Singer tweaked his hamstring just a few minutes before a Thursday night start at Mississippi State in the final regular-season series, forcing OSullivan to shuffle his starting rotation and go with freshman Tommy Mace. Schwarz broke his hand a couple of hours later, the inning before OSullivan planned to pull him for some rest. Indias slump started that same night. Floridas mostly reliable bullpen also got knocked around by the Bulldogs, with All-American closer Michael Byrne giving up four earned runs in 1 2/3 innings and setup man Jordan Butler surrendering four walks and six earned runs in 2 1/3 innings. The Gators didnt play much better in the SEC Tournament, getting outscored 19-2 in consecutive losses to LSU and Arkansas. Were fine, Byrne insisted. It happens in baseball. Weve gone through a stretch, but we know how good we are and what were capable of doing. Still, OSullivan was concerned enough to turn to Donovan for some outside help. I didnt know he was the loud, fiery guy that he is, but it was really incredible, Singer said. He said you can either overcome that adversity or let it shut you down. I think were still 100 percent confident. Weve just got to play like we had been playing and kind of wipe off whats happened the past two weeks. I dont think were going to have a problem with it. trying to improve his time in the one mile. Little did he know, the daughter of Seminole State College coach Octavious Ocky Clark just happened to be in attendance. Cierra Clark, a student at UF, could see Raffays potential right away and immediately let her dad know. Fast forward to a couple of phone calls between Octavious Clark and Columbia coach Shelli Shoup and Raffay had an offer. Shoup sold Clark on her runner without even meeting him. Between Shoups words and Raffays personal-best times (16:32 in 5,000m, 1:58 in 800m; season-best 4:29 in 1600m), Clark was convinced. He even offered Raffay a full-ride. When you hear the range from the 800 all the way up through cross country with 16 minutes in the 5K and the 4:29 in the 1600 and those being at the end of the season, it makes you think, Clark said. And then you know that the kid is from the Sudan so genetically hes got a gift for running so hey, why not go for it? Clark finally met Raffay for the first time at Thursdays ceremony, much to Raffays surprise. His jaw even literally dropped when Shoup told him Clark was behind stage. It was unbelievable. I did not believe my eyes. This man traveled almost three hours just to see me and celebrate with me so it was great and really nice, Raffay said. Raffay will receive top-notch coaching from Clark, who was a 10-time All-American at Santa Fe and two-time All-American at Florida State in addition to winning three NJCAA national titles in the 800m. Clark was also a Pan American Hames Gold medalist in 1991. I told Coach Clark that he hasnt even begun to develop, Shoup said. He hasnt been in the weight room, he has not had the speed training that his expertise is going to be able to definitely take him to the next level. Im amazed already by him with as little knowledge as we have here and what hes going to be able to do with him. Columbias team saying for Raffay is Yassin him go by and plenty of people were in attendance Thursday to watch Raffay go on to the next level. Raffay had plenty of people to thank, from his family to his teammates to his mentors. But he also says none of this would have been possible without Shoup, who just happened to answer her phone in class one day to hear Clarks voice on the other end. Now he hopes to take what hes learned from her and improve himself even more at Seminole State College. Shes done so much for me in my high school years, Raffay said. The love and support is massive. Its insane. Shes worked hard to give the best for me. Shes done so much. Shes a coach, shes a mentor, she was my teacher at one point and shes a great person. To me, shes very special so I really appreciate her. I really do. RAFFAY Continued From 1Bbut theyre probably not going to play a whole lot with us in the summer, Columbia coach Steve Faulkner said. Some people are like aw, that sucks but I think its great, because a lot of the younger guys, guys who didnt get much time (during the winter season), now get to play a lot this summer. And in my mind, that makes us better in the winter, because well have more depth and more guys we can go to. Because I (already) know what Im getting out of those three. Columbia enters the summer league without the star trio, which lifted the team back to the playoffs for the first time since 2013. This summer the Tigers instead will lean on returning guards like Darrien Jones and Maleak Miller. Players like Charleston Ponds and Kenny Gaines slated to have larger roles in 2019 are among others who will also contribute and help ease the squads transition into a new motion offense. Im trying to put in some of the Villanova stuff, Faulkner said. Watching them in the Final Four, thinking that our team, at the high school level, mirrors what theyre, a team full of guards. I think it would fit us well, so its going to be a lot of teaching during the week, and then on the weekends trying to put it all into action. Unlike like last year, the Tigers wont compete in their travel AAU league based out of Gainesville. Columbia decided to do away with its usual summer double-dip in which players were competing simultaneously in two different leagues. The Tigers instead can now focus on one campaign, four weeks of instruction, with live games on the weekends. Columbia is poised to put its up-and-coming stars on the floor, many of which have already been competing over the last several weeks. In fact, Team Talent (S.T.H), a local travel team composed of Columbia players, recently won the State Qualifier Sunshine State Championship. Team Talent includes promising Columbia center Marcus Owens, Gaines, Ponds, Jones and others. All of those players will use the summer season to grow more comfortable on the floor, and even more familiar with the playbook. And just getting more on-court time, Faulkner added. A kid like Darrien Jones, last year stuck behind Marquez (Bell). Darien is going to be a really good player, so I think this is a big summer for him, you know, ball is in your hands, lets see what you can do. I think its going to make him better. And whats helped me out a lot is coach (Anthony) Perry running that AAU program (S.T.H.). So in November, when we start practice, I think well have a lot more depth in our program. Columbia held summer try-outs on Tuesday and assembled for the teams first practice on Wednesday. The Tigers are scheduled to face three out of the eight teams participating (Crystal River, Buchholz, Bell) in the Levy County Summer Shootout starting at noon, 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. Each team in the tournament plays single elimination Sunday at WHS. The Tigers head to Orlando next week for the Lake Howell Shootout and then return to Lake City for the annual Goodwill Games the following week. Columbia hopes to close out the jam-packed month with one final basketball trip to North Florida University June 29-30. Im really excited about this group, Faulkner added. First day of practice, I walked away saying hey, we have a chance to be pretty good. HELP Continued From 1B SUMMER Continued From 1BWCWS ROUNDUPOregon rolls past Arizona StateBy CLIFF BRUNTAssociated PressOKLAHOMA CITY Shannon Rhodes three-run homer in the sixth inning helped top-seeded Oregon defeat Arizona State 11-6 on Thursday at the Womens College World Series. White figured the game would be about pitching, but it was high scoring from the start. Oregon dominated Giselle G Juarez, Arizona States All-American pitcher. Juarez pitched a complete game, but she gave up 14 hits and 10 earned runs. Oregon pitcher Miranda Elish recovered from a rough start against the Ducks Pac12 rival and increased her career record to 37-1. She gave up five runs and six hits in five innings, and improved to 25-1 this season.Washington tops 2-time champ OklahomaWashingtons Gabbie Plain threw 5 2/3 strong innings, and the Huskies defeated two-time defending national champion Oklahoma 2-0 on Thursday in the Womens College World Series. Oklahoma senior pitcher Paige Parker, who had an 8-0 career record in WCWS play, got the loss after giving up three hits and one run in six innings. The Sooners (55-4) had won 16 straight games but will now play Arizona State in an elimination game on Saturday. Washington will play Oregon on Friday. Oklahoma coach Patty Gasso sat Parker in the fifth inning and Paige Lowary stepped in. Washingtons Sis Bates put the ball in play and Trysten Melhart scored when Lowarys throw home was a bit off. Julia DePonte then singled to score Kelly Burdick. texts me every day before the game and says just be ready, be ready to answer to the call. And thats what I did. Im just happy to be able to help out my team. Alyssa DiCarlo and Justice Milz hit home runs for Georgia (48-12). DiCarlo, whose homer was her 21st of the season, had three hits. Georgia won two of the three games in the regular season in the series between SEC rivals. We see each other a lot, so it can be either good or bad, DiCarlo said. Its really just about who shows up to play on any given day. They had more moments than us today. Georgia led 2-0 before Florida responded with five runs in the bottom of the first, highlighted by Ocasios blast. I thought the tempo of that first inning was really important to be able to get us back confident out there on defense with a three-run lead, Walton said. That was huge. Florida scored another in the second, two in the fourth, then three in the fifth to end the game. Georgia used four pitchers and didnt get more than 2 1/3 innings from any of them. The Bulldogs face elimination on Saturday. I do think there were some nerves that happened within the game, Georgia coach Lu Harris-Champer said. You know, its over now. We move forward. Florida played a great game. Youve got to give them credit, and weve got to do better and we will.
