He described the wrap as a present for President D onald Trump and will launch from Miami on his birthday, June 14, for a 40-minute cruise to Mar-a-Lago. He said the message was to say thank you to the President of the United States for working hard for the A mer ican people to make A mer ica great again.State Rep. Elizabeth Porter, R-Lake City, who is in her last term due to term limits, bid her constituents farewell. This is it. This is my swan song, Porter said. She spoke about her success in getting Leos Law passed, saying she hopes her successor continues to fight to fund the program. Named after Leo Walker, an autistic Live Oak boy who died after he eloped from his home, the bill helps families of people with special needs acquire search-and-rescue equipment. But funding for the program was diverted after the Parkland shooting to cover school safety. Rightfully so, Porter said. Porter also spoke about pushing for cross-bound ary permit legislation to prevent Jacksonville water regulators from issuing water-use permits that will negatively impact Columbia County, as well as her fight against a proposal that would have stopped Florida Gateway College and other state colleges from being able to offer four-year degrees. Porter gave credit to her staff for helping her secure appropriations from the state for projects to better Columbia County, such as drainage improvements at the fairgrounds. Us rural counties tend to get overlooked in the grand scheme of things, she said. State Sen. Rob Bradley, R-Fleming Island, spoke about his personal experience finding out about the Parkland shooting, calling the comprehensive school safety bill pass earlier this year a highlight of the legislative session. The bill allows some school employees to carry firearms on campus, prohibits the sale of guns to anyone under 21 not counting military or law enforcement and provides schools funding for security. This is the beginning of making sure we keep our kids safe, Bradley said. Bradley also said Floridas economy is booming. Were growing like wildfire, he said. Speaking on behalf of Rep. Neal Dunn, a Panama City Republican whose district includes southern Columbia County, Will Kendrick said most audience members should have already felt the benefits of the GOP tax plan passed last year. Hopefully thats just the first bite at the apple, Kendrick said. He also thanked the Lake City Reporter for its fair coverage of Dunn and its professional relationship with the congressman. City Councilwoman Melinda Moses was the last to speak, highlight ing the citys expansion of its utilities with the new Kicklighter wastewater plant and the renovation of the historic Blanche Hotel in progress. Its been a challenging and exciting year, Moses said. PORTERContinued From 1A By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA group of Price Creek Road residents bent on keeping local developers from changing residential property to industrial use in their neighborhood gained a victory Thursday night when county commissioners had a deadlocked vote. With commission chairman Tim Murphy unavailable to attend Thursdays meeting due to illness in his family, the countys four other commissioners split their votes with two commissioners, Ron Williams and Bucky Nash, voting in favor of the land use change and Everett Phillips and Rusty DePratter voting against. Under the boards rules and county charter, you have to have a majority vote to pass and because two-two is a tie and not a majority, it by definition fails, Joel Foreman, Columbia County attorney, said after the meeting. The only way board can pass or approve anything is with a majority vote and anything less than a majority fails. Richard Cole and Daniel Crapps of Price Creek LLC wanted to the county to allow them to rezone 110 acres of land from residential to light industrial. Obviously were pleased very, very pleased, said Bill Nettles, one of the residents against the proposed change. Im way behind on my fishing and yard work and Im going to try to catch up on both of them in that order. We would like to see this thing go away forever, but the applicant has a right to come back, and I suspect well be right back. Crapps did not take the setback as a total defeat and he said he would re-present the proposal to the board. We respect the decision of the board, but we were missing one board member, he said following the meeting. We think if we would have had a full board that we would have had approval. We will be back a year from today to reapply. Cole addressed the board at the meeting. I think a lot of the people that spoke today were pretty much misinformed and were dealing from an emotional stance and not actual fact, Cole said. Were talking about bringing industry into the area and its all around this (110acre tract) and around them now. This is just increasing it a little bit with appropriate buffers and everything. They (opponents) were coming up with some information that was just incorrect. During the meeting, which was attended by approximately 100 people, more than 20 people spoke their opinions about allowing or not allowing the proposed land use change. Only three were in favor of the change, Cole, Crapps and Lee Harvard, a Suwannee County resident. At the beginning of the meeting, Cole requested a continuance so he could make his presentation at a later date when all five commissioners were at the meeting, but that effort failed too when commissioners had their first 2-2 vote of the evening. They didnt want any thing on that property, Cole said. It doesnt matter what you want to put there, they would be against it. An earlier motion by Phillips died due to lack of support from the commission. Sam Bassett and his wife, Julie, both addressed the board letting commissioners know they didnt want the proposed land change and they were leading the audience in applause when the motion failed to gain a majority. It was a great win for not only the people of the Price Creek community but Columbia County, he said. Thanks to the board members who voted against this proposal. Julie Bassett said she was surprised with the boards final 2-2 outcome. I was a little nervous at the end there, she said. Sam Bassett said he was thankful the outcome turned out like it did. If it comes back next year well be here and were ready to fight, he said. TONY BRITT/Lake City Repor terBill Nettles addresses commissioners in opposition to a proposed zoning change Thursday night.

She bought the higher priced ticket, and the accident financed the new home she closed on at the end of February through Realtor Blaiyze Neeley of RE/MAX Professionals in Lake City. Holmes emailed the series production team, and after a few days a six-person film crew came to Lake City to make a show with her in early March. For roughly four days, she accompanied the producers and show host David Bromstad through the filming process. We had a blast. They were fun, she said. The producers came from across the country, while Bromstad made the drive the same day as the shoot from his Orlando home, Holmes said. Its going to be fun to watch how they put it, when I know in between that we had to stop and do this because we were laughing or David was cussing, she laughed. Holmes said on the first day of filming she was nervous, but that quickly changed. Hes hilarious, she said of Bromstad. By the end of the day my son and I were having a blast. Holmes was tight-lipped about the location of her new home, but did say it sat on five acres along the countys eastern side. Despite having fun shooting the show, there were a few details Holmes said might puzzle local viewers. She said she wanted to set the record straight before it aired. My Lottery Dream Home is billed as a reality television show on HGTVs website. But Holmes said only about 50 percent of what viewers will see is in fact real, though she held no hard feelings about the producers methods. Actually they kind made up a whole back story. They had me living in Gainesville. They had a prop house in Gainesville and said that I was living in the city and wanted to move to the country, Holmes said. So everybody that sees this is going to be like thats not right. Holmes is from Lake City and continues to both live and work here. She said she relayed her concerns and received a flippant reply. I said this isnt going to make sense and they said Nobody else in America cares, dear and I said OK. Lets roll with it. So thats what we did. She said she wasnt looking for a house with land as the shows narrative portrays, but she preferred to stay in city limits. By the time they arrived she had already bought her home, so any search was strictly for show. The home I purchased is on five acres. I honestly did not want land, I did not want to be out in the country. Thats what was so funny about this whole thing and everybody knows and everybody was laughing, she said. Holmes said she was basically going through the motions of a storyline already prepared by the time the production team had arrived. Her real estate agent, Neeley, is also related to her and was working with Lake City Realtor Missy Zecher. However, Neeley received no screen time, something Holmes objected to. Another local Realtor appeared as the real estate expert consulted by the show host. Ginny Smith with Century 21 of Lake City sat down with Bromstad in their local headquarters off U.S. Highway 90 and advised him about the areas real estate market. I just talked about Lake City and the beautiful springs and the prices of homes here, Smith said. She said she sold Bromstad on Lake City at large and marketed the areas attributes. Were unique when people think about Florida, she said. The further north you go the more Southern you get, Smith said. In all, she said her interview took about an hour and a half with the entire production team in the lobby of Century 21. He came here and filmed me in the chairs right there, she said. Smith said they approached her in March after learning she was selling a home in the same price range that Holmes was looking for. She said she had to keep the filming a secret, which wasnt easy. Holmes said the part of her story about winning the lottery that will appear in the show is largely accurate, though. She worked to raise two children and hasnt stopped. The one thing she said that had changed in her life since her scratch off win? She said she no longer stresses about money.

When it comes to protecting the integrity of our elections, everyone has an equal obligation to follow the law. That includes online behemoths such as Google and Facebook, which are becoming increasingly big players in political advertising, both nationally and in Washington state. By accepting these political-campaign dollars, the companies also are accepting the responsibility to keep detailed records of who is using their online platforms to influence millions of voters. These transparency requirements, which Washington state voters approved by citizen initiative in 1972, are the same ones regularly followed by local TV stations, newspapers and print shops that accept money in exchange for airing or printing political ads. Yet the evidence suggests Google and Facebook have repeatedly failed to abide by the same rules. In separate lawsuits filed against the two tech giants this week, Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson asserts the companies failed to record the names and addresses of people buying political advertising, along with how much the ads cost and how they were paid for. Furthermore, it appears the companies failed to provide this information to members of the public for inspection something the law also requires. Eli Sanders, an associate editor at The Stranger, asked to view these records at Facebook and Googles local offices last fall and was denied, prompting another citizen to follow up and launch a complaint that led to Fergusons lawsuit. At their core, these kind of compliance gaps severely limit the publics ability to keep tabs on who is injecting money into local politics. Additionally, such lapses also can hurt state regulatory agencies ability to enforce campaign-finance laws. By design, some of the data media companies must collect mirrors what political committees and campaigns are required to report elsewhere. This extra layer of accountability means that when a political campaign breaks the rules such as by not clearly identifying who paid for their TV spot or digital banner ad regulators with the state Public Disclosure Commission can go directly to the TV station, printer or online ad platform to find answers. Its all about having multiple sources to verify who is seeking to influence elections, which was one of the primary purposes of I-276, said Toby Nixon, president of the Washington Coalition for Open Government, referring back to the title of the 1972 citizen initiative. In recent years, more campaigns have turned to Facebook and Google for online advertising, making this issue a crucial one to resolve. According to Fergusons lawsuit, Washington state candidates and political committees reported nearly $860,000 in payments for Facebook ads last year a sharp increase from the $310,000 they reported during midyear elections in 2014, and dwarfing the $148,000 spent in the 2015 local election cycle. If Facebook and Google are going to serve as platforms for political advertising, while pocketing the millions of dollars in revenue that comes with that, they have to follow the rules. It really is that simple.When our ancestors lived in primitive tribes or villages, traditions helped them make a living. They developed lifestyles that worked, in a particular location, where there was a dependable source of food, water, and materials for building shelter. But in these modern and complicated times, change is always here, and we need to change and adapt our lives. Psychology is the scientific study of thinking, feeling, and behavior. And Positive Psychology is a toolbox that you can use to improve your life and level of happiness. You can change negative thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Our thoughts, habits, emotions and actions need to change throughout our lives, to adapt to our modern changing world. Over a lifetime, habits can become very resistant to our awareness and our ability to change them. We learn by trial and error. When we think or act in one way, and it works to get us through a tough situation, we feel rewarded. Were more likely to repeat that behavior over and over, even after it stops working for us. Habits are hard to break! To survive and thrive, we must adapt and change. What worked for you last week, or 5 years ago, wont work forever, in our changing world. Here are 3 positive psychology tools, which can be easy and fast to learn: reframing, rewriting, and replacing. The way we see, interpret, and respond to day-to-day events and situations depends on how weve learned to understand and think about them. When you take a moment to think about your thoughts and your approach to a situation, you can explore or create other ways of interpreting them. For instance, if you think to yourself What a jerk! The idiot cut me off, trying to get ahead of me when our lanes merged! you might reframe that thought pattern, with something like, We need to merge now. Ill slow down, and let the other guy in. Its not a race. I can be the good guy. What you just did is called reframing. How about when you make a serious mistake? Instead of saying to yourself, One mistake, and my team will give up on me! how about thinking, I can use my mistakes to learn and grow from, and use the lesson to become better because of it. You can look at it as a step forward in making your life a little more successful, and better. These events that you face, and the challenges you face in your life, can be seen as little short stories. And you can imagine your life to be a long path or trail that has a beginning, adventures along the way, and an end. What you just did is called rewriting your script, or rewriting your story. Maybe you sit down and vegetate in front of the TV set, to avoid taking that easy first step towards accomplishing something that you really would like to do, or to achieve. It could be to start a daily routine of walking your dog, or shopping for some paint to spruce up your home, or to read that book thats been gathering dust on the shelf. Behavior habits can become so regular and repetitious that they become hard to fix. Positive psychology gives us evidence that the best way to change a habit isnt will power, but instead to find a behavior that better meets the need that caused the habit in the first place try it, and if it works for you, and satisfies that need that causes the habit, youll feel rewarded. Then youll be much more likely to repeat the new behavior next time. Soon, since it works well, youll lose the need for the old habit. You replaced it with the new habit. You just accomplished what psychologists call replacement. So, take charge of your own life! Use reframing, rewriting, and replacement techniques. Positive psychology can help you make the most of what youve got to work with, and can help you create that better and happier life that we all deserve.

(See Page 3A.) It took a lot of planning and hard work, but here it is. This is the way to build a commercial base in Ellisville.

In 1864, Abraham Lincoln was nominated for another term as president during the National Union (Republican) Partys convention in Baltimore. In 1915, U.S. Secretary of State William Jennings Bryan resigned over what he viewed as President Woodrow Wilsons overly bellicose attitude toward Germany following the sinking of the RMS Lusitania. In 1948, the Texaco Star Theater made its debut on NBC-TV with Milton Berle guest-hosting the first program. (Berle was later named the shows permanent host.) In 1953, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled unanimously that restaurants in the District of Columbia could not refuse to serve blacks. Eight tornadoes struck Michigans Lower Peninsula, killing 126 people. 1966, the strongest of a series of tornadoes struck the Topeka, Kansas, area, killing 17 people. A merger was announced between the National and American Football Leagues, to take effect in 1970. In 1967, 34 U.S. servicemen were killed when Israel attacked the USS Liberty, a Navy intelligence-gathering ship in the Mediterranean. (Israel later said the Liberty had been mistaken for an Egyptian vessel.)

Mark Twain once said, Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow. Im pretty sure he had going to the dentist, balancing his checkbook, or maybe starting a new diet in mind. All of these seem like really good ideas-to do tomorrow. Defined as the habitual and intentional act of delaying doing or completing a responsibility, procrastination has been called opportunitys assassin. If we are honest, most of us recognize it as a bad habit that adds unnecessary stress to our lives. One of the earliest recorded occurrences of procrastination in the Bible is in the book of Exodus. Moses is having yet another meeting with Egypts Pharaoh about letting Gods people go and has the added leverage of the plague of frogs for motivation. He tells Pharaoh, I leave to you the honor of setting the time for me to pray for you and your officials and your people that you and your houses may be rid of the frogs Pharaohs answer? Tomorrow. (Exodus 8:9-10) No rhyme or reason to that, unless he had a plan for frog legs for supper and lots of them. Why else would you keep a house full of frogs around longer than absolutely necessary? Procrastination-lets just not deal with it today. In all seriousness, procrastination is one of the most effective weapons against experiencing success and living as an overcomer of our struggles. It harms us by making sure that opportunities on the job and involving our education are lost because we miss deadlines and are labeled as undependable. Unfinished projects, broken promises and lack of growth result in seriously damaged relationships. Procrastination even takes a toll on our health: ignore that symptom or avoid a check-up long enough and there could be trouble. What are you putting off, and what could it possibly cost you? Proverbs 27:1 brings a healthy perspective: Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth. When we procrastinate, we are boasting that we have the right to a tomorrow, and in reality there is no guarantee. Procrastination While many within the evangelical community are hailing the Supreme Court decision in the Masterpiece Cakeshop Case a win for religious freedom, I lament the breakdown and loss of common sense in what was once a Christian nation founded on biblical principles. If you think that is an exaggeration stop and consider the current Masterpiece Cakeshop Case as an example. Our legal system has devolved to the point it takes the highest court in our land to decide the circumstances under which one citizen should, or should not, bake a cake for another citizen. Justice Anthony Kennedy who wrote the majority opinion in this 7-2 decision is the same one who struck down the Defense of Marriage Act effectively legalizing same-sex marriage back in 2015. DOMA was unconstitutional and needed to be struck down, but not for the reasons Kennedy cited in his opinion. In overturning DOMA, Kennedy created, though not alone, the legal imbroglio that led to this case, and any celebration now should be tempered by the truth that what the Supreme Court gives it can take away with the same caprice it uses to interpret the constitution now. That is because his legal reasoning is as silly now as it was then. DOMA should have been struck down because the regulation of marriage is not one of the powers of Congress enumerated in the Constitution. According to the Tenth Amendment those powers not enumerated in the Constitution to Congress are reserved to the States and the people. Marriage constitutionally and historically is the exclusive purview of the States and the people. Congress had no constitutional authority to enact DOMA. DOMA merely gave the Supreme Court the opportunity to redefine marriage and approve same-sex marriage through judicial fiat apart from the legislative process. Ergo, that ruling is constitutionally flawed; the Supreme Court cannot legislate, it can only interpret. But in DOMA the Supreme Forgiveness from the heart Here is a question that we all struggle with in life: Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? I must admit that forgiveness is wonderful to receive but sometimes difficult to give. Peter asked Jesus this question after listening to Jesus teachings on how to respond when another person has sinned against you who is from the family of God. Please read Matthew 18:21-35 as Jesus responds to Peters question with an unexpected answer. We can define sin as missing the mark, to act contrary and thus to go astray from the revealed will of God. We must come to grips with the fact that we live in a broken world because of sin. We all have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23) Even those who have been born again sometimes still commit sin. To forgive someone means that we remove the guilt associated with the wrong that has been done. The wrong cannot be undone but we can Robert Bassrobertcbass@yahoo.com The loss of common senseCHRISTIAN CONCEPTS Gary Kinggarybkingcc@gmail.comWhat are we to do when the highest court in the land breaks the law?Dont put things off for too longProcrastination always finds an excuse not to deal with things that are causing harm today.HEART MATTERS Angie Landangieland3@windstream.netKING continued on 6A BASS continued on 6A LAND continued on 6A

What are we to do when the highest court in the land breaks the law? Marriage between one man and one woman is not the exclusive practice of Christians. Heterosexual marriage is the predominant practice of all major religions and cultures around the world. No religion or society on the face of the earth has flourished celebrating homosexual marriage that is wholly incapable of reproducing the next generation. Ultimately fallen men cannot be trusted to use common sense when trying to use their position as justices engineer social change. This is why the Scriptures declare, Many seek the rulers favor, but justice for man comes from the Lord, Proverbs 29:26. Common sense is not as common as it once was. Evangelicals will soon learn you cannot have your cake and eat it too, because a fallen system does not possess the common sense that will produce lasting, transcendent justice. Continued From 5Aalways finds an excuse not to deal with things that are causing harm today. Problem is, the longer we leave it, the more damage it will cause. Last, but not least, we are developing a bad habit that can become a way of life. Hebrews 3:7-8 gives us the cure: Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts Hear in this passage implies more than just listening. It means to attend to; to consider what is or has been said. Harden in the original Greek actually translates to become stubborn. In other words, the longer we procrastinate, the more stubborn we become. Lets not put off till tomorrow what really needs to be tended to today, for there is much to loseand our hearts really do matter. Blessings, Angie Continued From 5A Gary B.

Jesus uses the parable of the servant that had so mismanaged and stolen from his master that there was no way he could pay it back to explain forgiveness. When the servants master had learned what his servant had done he was ready to sell everything of his including his wife and children just to get his money back. His servant however fell to his knees and begged him to have mercy and saying that he would pay it back, but there was no way he could. The master was right in wanting what was rightfully his and after listening to his servant he extended mercy to him. He withheld the judgment that he was going to give-thats what mercy is. He forgave himhe released the servant from the guilt of the wrong that he had committed against him. But the mercy that the servant received didnt have an impact in his heart. We read how he mistreated another servant who basically owed him a little bit of money. This servants heart had not been changed by the mercy he had received. When the other servants go to their master and tell him everything that had happened he got very angry and rewarded the servant accordingly. When people get under conviction for sins committed against God they come to him through Jesus Christ and ask him to have mercy on them. When he extends mercy toward them, others can see if there is truly a difference in that persons heart by the way they treat others. How has Gods mercy changed your life? We who are born again can forgive others from the heart because Christ is living in us. Listen to these instructions from Ephesians 4:32 Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you. Continued From 5A Mormons grapple with race decades after ban on black leadersFrom the Associated PressThe Mormon church on June 1 celebrated the 40th anniversary of reversing its ban on black people serving in the lay priesthood, going on missions or getting married in temples, rekindling debate about one of the faiths most sensitive topics. The number of black Mormons has grown but still only accounts for an estimated 6 percent of 16 million worldwide members. Not one serves in the highest levels of global leadership. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints has worked to improve race relations, including calling out white supremacy and launching a new formal alliance with the NAACP, but some black Mormons and scholars say discriminatory opinions linger in some congregations from a ban rooted in a belief that black skin was a curse. In a 2013 essay the church disavowed the reasons behind the ban and condemned all racism, saying the prohibition came during an era of great racial divide that influenced early church teachings. Blacks were always allowed to be members, but the nearly century-long ban kept them from participating in many important rituals. Scholars said the essay included the churchs most comprehensive explanation for the ban and its 1978 reversal, which leaders say came from a revelation from God. But it didnt include an apology, leaving some unsatisfied. A lot of members are waiting for the church just to say, We were wrong, said Phylicia Norris-Jimenez, a 30-yearold black Mormon and member of the grass-roots Black LDS Legacy Committee, a group of women who are organizing a conference Saturday in Utah to honor the legacy of black Mormon pioneers. Norris-Jimenez said non-black church members still struggle with how to talk about the ban or understand the pain it causes. She said the anniversary celebration honors something that should have never existed but that its a good gesture and hopefully leads to more discussions about race. A fellow group member, LaShawn Williams, said she finds comfort in her belief that the ban was a policy of people, not a policy of God, made during a racist time. She and her three children are the only black members of her congregation in Orem, Utah, and she tries to talk about race issues regularly with the teenagers she teaches in Sunday school. Williams, an assistant professor in social work at Utah Valley University, would like an apology. If we preach repentance, we should definitely embody it, she said. The theme of the anniversary celebration in Salt Lake City was Be one, a reference to a Mormon scripture. Gladys Knight, one of the most famous black Mormons, performed, and top church leaders gave speeches. President Russell M. Nelson said comprehending true brotherhood and sisterhood can inspire people to build bridges of cooperation instead of walls of segregation. Nelsons first counselor, Dallin H. Oaks, acknowledged the pain and suffering the ban caused while urging members to look forward in the unity of our faith. Prior to event, Ahmad Corbitt, a church employee who led the effort to organize the event, said the celebration was a call to the entire church, and by extension, the entire world, to let go of prejudices and come together as one unified family. Corbitt declined to address a church apology, saying the faith is focused on a forward-looking approach to unity. Darius Gray, co-founder of the Genesis Group that supports black Mormons, said the church and its doctrine arent racist but racism lingers in the faith as it does in society.

Deanna Conner was recently been hired as the Lady Indians new coach to replace Kali Hunter, who stepped down after three seasons as she prepares to get married later this year. Conner comes over from First Christian Academy, where she spent the past three seasons on the staff after spending three years as the head coach at Riverside. The Lady Indians met their new coach for the first time on Thursday when Conner held an open gym practice following back-to-back 5-12 seasons under Hunter. Ive told them they have a lot of work to do and as long as they come and give 110 (percent) effort and workload, theyre going to be just fine, Conner said. I know that from everything Ive heard they need guidance and I dont have a problem doing that. Its just going to take me probably the summer to learn the girls and what their potentials are and stretch them a little bit and get them outside of their comfort zone and get them growing. Thats what our intentions are this year pick them up and get them better as a team. Conner has been on a volleyball court since a young age. She played all four years in high school in addition to playing in a church league and then continued to play beach volleyball Lake City Reporter SPORTS Friday, June 8, 2018 www.lakecityreporter.com Section B Story ideas?

The independent review by a law firm did not determine that Colangelo operated or was even aware of Twitter accounts that anonymously trashed some of his own players and fellow executives, and defended him against criticism from fans and the sports media. Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP said evidence supported the conclusion that Colangelos wife, Barbara Bottini, operated the four accounts it investigated, and she admitted to doing so though also said she deleted contents of her iPhone with a factory reset of the device prior to surrendering it for forensic review, limiting the investigation. As for Colangelo, there was no evidence he knew of the accounts before a May 22 inquiry from the sports website The Ringer for a story it report ed linking him to five Twitter accounts that 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. Colangelo released a state ment disputing that his conduct was reckless. At no point did I ever pur posefully or directly share any sensitive, non-public, club-relat ed information with her, he said.Edelman headed for 4-game suspensionFOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) New England receiver Julian Edelman could be suspended for violating the leagues per formance-enhancers policy.

The district attorneys office said Thursday that Davis faces a felony assault charge. The player, known by the nickname Big Baby, is accused of throwing the victim into a wall during an altercation out side a club on April 8. Prosecutors say the victim suffered great bodily injury. Davis was expected to appear in court Thursday. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney who could comment on his behalf. Davis played for the Boston Celtics, the Orlando Magic and the Los Angeles Clippers. If convicted, Davis could face up to seven years in prison.FAST BREAKSUPER REGIONAL PREMIER PREP VOLLEYBALLConner named FWHS coachBy GREG BEACHAMAssociated PressLAS VEGAS (AP) After 43 seasons, the Washington Capitals are finally sitting on top of hockey.

PETERSBURG (AP) Mike Leake pitched into the ninth inning, Mitch Haniger homered and drove in three, and the AL West-leading Seattle Mariners beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-4 on Thursday night. Leake (6-3) was lifted with a 5-1 lead after allowing his eighth hit, a leadoff double in the ninth to Wilson Ramos. Johnny Field hit a three-run double off Alex Colome before the former Rays closer got a game-ending grounder from Daniel Robertson. The Tampa Bay Rays designated infielder Brad Miller for assignment to clear a roster spot for first baseman/ outfielder Jake Bauers earlier in the day.
DEAR ABBY: I have a friend who brags nonstop about her boyfriend, her job, her new car, etc. She only comes out of the woodwork every so often to text me things like, Roy just got a $13 raise at work! I respond with wholehearted support and congratulations, then dont hear from her again until days later, when I receive another text saying something like, My boss said I can work any hours I want from now on! Im not sure why she sends me these messages. Could it be to make me jealous of her fairytale lifestyle, which Im not sure I believe she even truly lives? We have no other meaningful conversation or time together, and I am growing tired of texts that are solely meant to showcase her wins in life. I have tried to distance myself by responding less and less and not initiating conversations, but then she asks why Im mad at her. I feel like I am nothing more than a wall she posts her accomplishments on. I have no desire to be friends with her anymore, but Im not sure how to get out of it. Thoughts? -EX-FRIEND IN THE EAST DEAR EX-FRIEND: Continue to respond to her texts less and less frequently. If she asks if you are mad at her, tell her you arent mad, you are busy. If she wants more detail, tell her you have noticed that she has shown no interest in what your life is like, and to you thats not friendship. DEAR ABBY : My mother is getting up in years. Because of a multitude of health problems, she will soon have to enter a nursing home. She currently lives in her own home with her dog, Skippy, and is facing the problem of what to do with Skippy when she has to move. Skippy has growled at people in the past, including children, and has a brief biting history, which limits Moms options and makes it impossible for her to bring the dog with her to a group nursing home. Were unable to take Skippy on because were at our legal limit, according to the laws of our municipality, and we know of no one we can place a dog with such issues with. Any ideas? -NEEDS A HOME FOR NIPPY SKIPPY DEAR NEEDS: Contact the dog rescue groups in your area. Perhaps they can locate a home for an older dog -I assume Skippy is older -in a household where there are no children. Its regrettable that your mother didnt socialize her pet when it was a puppy, because it would have made it easier to keep Skippy with her. DEAR ABBY: I have noticed that your letter writers often assign a fictitious name to the person they are writing about. I wonder why they do this. What is the purpose? -JOHN DOE IN TAMPA DEAR JOHN: I change all the names in the letters I print. I do this to prevent embarrassment for the letter writer as well as the person whos being complained about. DEAR ABBY: Im 16 and my parents are getting a divorce. It is really hard. They put me in the middle a lot in their arguments, like Im a counselor. I have told them repeatedly I dont like it, and they promise it wont happen again, but it does. They both tell me their sides of the story, but they never bother to listen to my feelings and what I want to say. Its like I have to be the adult/parent, while all I want is for them to hear me without getting upset. How do I bring this up? -GIRL IN THE MIDDLE DEAR GIRL: Your parents have placed you in a no-win position. What they are doing to you is extremely unfair. If you have a trusted aunt, uncle or grandparents you can confide in, enlist their help in delivering the message to your parents that their behavior is destructive. While your parents may be able to tune you out when you ask not to be involved in their marital problems, they may be less likely to ignore the message if they hear it from another adult. If you dont have a relative you can confide in, then enlist the help of a counselor at school. DEAR ABBY : I have a question about resumes. Over the last six years -from the ages of 18 to 24 -I have worked three jobs. One was full-time, two were part-time and each lasted two years. (They were baking at a local bakery, serving at a restaurant and being a file clerk.) Now that I have my nursing degree, should I mention my previous employment on my resume when applying for a nursing position? I dont want it to look like I cant make up my mind when it comes to employment, but I also dont want it to appear like I have never worked a day in my life. Thoughts? -WANTS TO BE A NURSE DEAR WANTS TO BE A NURSE: If you list your dates of prior employment -as well as the date you received your nursing degree -it should be apparent that you were working toward your nursing degree all along. Before you are hired, you will be personally interviewed, which will give you the opportunity to not only explain what you have to offer, but also point out that your resume reflects that youre a hard worker. Thats important information, and you should use all of your ammunition to land the job youre looking for. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Keep emotions out of the workplace or when dealing with anyone who is in a position superior to your own. Listen and make adjustments based on whats best for you, but do so without making a fuss. Avoid making a physical change. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Hold tight and be strategic. Making an abrupt move will lead to uncertainty. It is best to refrain from showing anger or getting involved in physical situations that could make you appear unstable or incon sistent. Focus on personal improvements. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Make your voice heard. Stand up and be counted. Put your heart and soul into your beliefs, and challenge anyone who is reticent to hear you out. You can make a difference if you use intelligence, fair play and a friendly nudge. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Refuse to let someone get to you. Listen and look for simple, effective ways to deal with any differences you have with others, or choose to do your own thing. Avoid an argument at all costs, and be willing to walk away. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Stick to friends who are disciplined and unlikely to tempt you or lead you astray. A business meeting or trip can lead to information that will encourage you to form a partnership. Scrutinize the details before making a commitment. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You may desire change, but before you get started, check out your options and head in a direction that will help to stabilize your world. Upsetting someone you love by doing something risky will not be worth it. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Alter your living quarters or take a trip that offers a unique environment. A pick-me-up will help reduce stress and get you away from some of the trials and tribulations you face at home or at work. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Put time and effort into something you love to do. A creative outlet will help build confidence as well as encourage you to find a way to make money. A romantic encounter will improve your day. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Spend time fixing up your residence or making your way to a place that offers mental stimulation and positive challenges. Test your agility, physical stamina and ability to think fast and react quickly. Live in the moment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Dont react too quickly. Put space between you and someone you arent getting along with. Take time to think matters through and consider the consequences should you take action prematurely. Positive actions will bring good results. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Learn from past mistakes. Use your experience and intelligence to help you overcome anyone or anything that tempts you to do something you probably shouldnt. Use the past to help you bring about a better future. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Youll learn a difficult lesson if you let someone get away with something that can disrupt your life. Personal changes should come from within and should be put into play because they are what you want and need, not for someone elses benefit.

Some things to know:LETS DO IT AGAINDefending national champion and No. 1 national seed Florida has the nations longest streak with five consecutive appearances in super regionals. The Gators are looking to become the first back-toback champion since South Carolina in 2010-11. Mississippi State is in super regionals for the third year in a row. Cal State Fullerton, Oregon State and Vanderbilt are in the round of 16 for the second straight year. Florida, Fullerton and Oregon State made it to the CWS in 2017.WELCOME INFirst-time participants are Duke, Minnesota, Stetson and Washington. Auburn is in for the first time since 1999.LOTS OF SCORINGTeams averaged 6.29 runs per game and batted .281 in regionals, the highest figures since the switch to the toned-down BBCOR bats in 2011. In 40 of the 100 games, one or both teams scored 10 or more runs. Last year, that was the case in 25 of 104 games.SEC MINI TOURNEYThe Southeastern Conference sent a record-tying six teams to super regionals for the second year in a row and third time since 2004. All of them are matched up against each other this time. Florida won two of three against Auburn at home in April; Arkansas won two of three against South Carolina at home in April and beat the Gamecocks last month in the SEC Tournament; and Vanderbilt swept three games at Mississippi State in March. None of the teams paired in the other five super regionals met this season.MAMMOTH MATCHUPGame 1 of AuburnFlorida features the pitching matchup of No. 1 overall draft pick Casey Mize (10-5, 2.95 ERA) of the Tigers against No. 18 pick Brady Singer (11-1, 2.27). The two squared off April 26 in Gainesville, Florida. Both allowed four hits in seven innings, with Mize striking out 10 and Singer eight. Singer got the win, 3-1.DUKE BULLPEN SHINESDuke will be hoping to get more out of its starting pitchers against Texas Tech. Three of the four starters turned in their shortest outings of the season in the Athens Regional. The bullpen was outstanding, though, with a 1.55 ERA over 29 innings covering five games. Relievers combined to strike out 31 and walk two. Closer Jack Labosky allowed one hit in six shutout innings. The longest start was by Mitch Stallings, who went seven innings in the regional-clinching win over Georgia two days after going 4 1/3 in a win over Campbell.FANTASTIC FRESHMENDuke designated hitter Chris Crabtree is among freshman impact players. Crabtree is batting a tournament-best .714 with two homers, three doubles and nine RBIs. Others to watch are Auburn roommates Steven Williams (.615) and Edouard Julien (.538), Mississippi States Rowdy Jordan (.455, three doubles) and Tanner Allen (three doubles, two homers), Texas Techs Gabe Holt (three doubles), Arkansas Heston Kjerstad (.500, five RBIs), Oregon States Kevin Abel (0 runs in 8 innings) and Cal State Fullertons Tanner Bibee (11 strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings).GOING DEEPThree of the top four home run-hitting teams are still alive. Offensive juggernaut Tennessee Tech leads the way with 134 homers, the most since Elon hit 138 in 2009. Florida is third, with 91, after hitting 70 last season. Arkansas is fourth, with 90, after hitting 83 last season and 49 in 2016.STREAK VS. STREAKStetson, led by ace and No. 14 overall draft pick Logan Gilbert, carries a nations-best 18-game win streak into its matchup with North Carolina. The Tar Heels have won 16 in a row in Chapel Hill, the second-longest active home win streak (Stetson has won 17 in a row at home). The Hatters and Tar Heels are meeting for the first time since 1985.LET THERE BE A 3A No. 3 regional seed Washington or Cal State Fullerton is assured of advancing to the CWS for the third time in four years. Texas A&M made it last year and Virginia in 2015. Continued From 1B recreationally after graduating. A friend recommended that Conner apply for the opening at Fort White and athletic director John Wilson said she impressed the school in her interview. She had a good interview and she wants to not only do the normal stuff that new coaches want to do like come in and be effective with the kids but she has a sincere manner about her where she really truly wants to help kids get better and work together in a family atmosphere, Wilson said. TIWAHE was brought up to her during the interview and she said thats exactly what she wants. She wants to have a family atmosphere where the kids come in and improve as the year progresses and as they go on. The Lady Indians were already introduced to a couple of Conners techniques and strategies during Thursdays open session. Conner says shes excited about the challenge of turning around Fort Whites program and she believes she has the experience to make it happen. I think first and foremost, besides getting to know them and comfortable enough with me that their guards get let down, is Im giving them the tools that they need. Theres a lot of tools that I have skill-wise and competitive-wise that I think I can offer them. I think they need more tools and a little more guidance so I think that I have that to give to them. Continued From 1B to the stiff competition following a strong showing last weekend. Columbia went 4-1 during the Levy County Summer Shootout with the one defeat coming by two points in the championship game to North Marion. The runner-ups roll into their next exhibition tournament with some momentum after the solid outing on the road. I saw some good things, Columbia coach Steve Faulkner said of the tournament at Williston High. We played well in spots but we also have a bunch of young kids still learning. I was happy with them. Columbia received plenty of help from its newcomers during the tournament as well as from returning players like center Marcus Owens and guard Darien Jones. Jones has stepped up big with stars Jordan Smith, Marquez Bell and Bobby Fulton out (football). Darien played fantastic, Darien was a man, Faulkner added. Hes going to be really, really goodNot that I am happy (Marquez) isnt playing but I think its going to be really good for him that Quez isnt playingHe understands the game at a level higher than anyone else on the team. So this gives him an opportunity to get some experience, play well (because) the ball is in his hands. Columbia will continue to practice during the week and play tournament games on the weekends for the remainder of this month. Weve had guys out of town, guys without a ride so we havent been able to really practice as a team but we got a lot of shots this week so hopefully that will help. POOL A: Columbia, Eastside, Cedar Key. POOL B: Hamilton County, Gainesville, Quincy. Continued From 1BFILEColumbia center Marcus Owens put up a shot against Santa Fe on Jan. 17 as passive as he was in the early going against 11th-seeded Diego Schwartzman, seizing 12 of the initial 13 points after they stepped out under a blue sky and pulling away for a 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 victory at Court Philippe Chatrier. Totally different guy yesterday, Schwartzman said. Maybe the day when you can beat Rafa was yesterday. Across the way at Court Suzanne Lenglen, No. 5 del Potro got distracted by a spectator right before a key double-fault, then marched over toward the stands to try to figure out who it was. Otherwise, he stayed steady in a 7-6 (5), 5-7, 6-3, 7-5 win over No. 3 Marin Cilic in a matchup between two past U.S. Open champions. The other mens semifinal is No. 7 Dominic Thiem of Austria against 72nd-ranked Marco Cecchinato of Italy, who never won a Grand Slam match until last week and was cleared of a match-fixing charge on a technicality in 2016. After del Potro served out his victory at love to get to his first semifinal at the clay-court Grand Slam tournament since 2009, he sat in his changeover seat, chest heaving.Stephens eyes 2nd Slam title, Halep 1st in French Open finalSloane Stephens closed in on her second Grand Slam title by beating pal Madison Keys 6-4, 6-4 on Thursday in the first all-American semifinal at the French Open since 2002. It also was a rematch of the U.S. Open final won by Stephens last September. Its always hard playing someone from your country and such a good friend, Stephens said, so I was really pleased to be able to get through that and play some good tennis. The 10th-seeded Stephens opponent in Saturdays final will be Simona Halep, who emphatically ended the impressive French Open run of 2016 champion Garbine Muguruza by defeating her 6-1, 6-4. Halep, who assured herself of retaining the No. 1 ranking with the victory, earned a fourth chance to win her first major title. She twice has lost in the final at Roland Garros to Maria Sharapova in 2014 and to Jelena Ostapenko in 2017 and was the runner-up to Caroline Wozniacki at the Australian Open in January. I lost three times until now and no one died, Halep said, so it will be OK. Muguruza, a two-time major champion, entered the semifinals having not lost a set in the tournament. She also was coming off a lopsided victory in the quarterfinals a day earlier, overwhelming Sharapova 6-2, 6-1. The 6-foot-6 (1.98-meter) Argentine wiped away tears during his on-court interview, telling fans who chanted his nickname, delPo: It has been a long time without good feelings on my body. ... I was close to quit this sport. And now I dont have any words to describe this moment. Its so good for me, for my team, for my family. OPEN Continued From 1B
