Its staff recommendation (from the police department), as well as mine, that in order to do a thorough background check for our two candidates, we thought it was in the best interest to postpone to a later date for the meet and greet and final selection, said Michele Greene, Lake City Human Resources director. That will allow the police department to ensure they are able to complete a thorough investigation and provide a thorough report for council consideration. An initial background report was done by Greene on the short list of candidates after they applied for the position. However, the additional background checks taking place now are more in-depth, including some on-site vetting of the people who have worked Helfenberger Judd CITY continued on 3AFrom staff reportsA motorcyclist was the victim of a collision with a cow on Tuesday.

On Saturday, the first day of the weekends main races, the sun was hot, the track was dry and the radio control cars were soaring over jumps, skidding out of turns and gunning to the checkered flag. A rain delay around 2:15 p.m. temporarily halted the competition. Crews pulled a plastic tarp over the course but said the races would resume, weather permitting. The 2018 ROAR Fuel 1/8 Off Road Nationals will conclude today as the main events draw to a close and awards are scheduled for presentation later this afternoon. Since late last week, racers have been whittled down through qualifiers. On Saturday, Southside RC Raceways club President Lance McDonald and a 2018 ROAR race official said there were an estimated 1,500 in attendance at the race between drivers, pit crew members and audience. Vehicles and RVs spilled out of parking lots at Southside Sports Complex, and lined roads for yards leading to the main event. The sound of tiny, whirring, methanol-powered motors made pinpointing the track easy, through the dozens of pop-up tents and campers that enclosed the event.

A deputy in every schoolBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA school resource deputy will be stationed at every Columbia County public school next year, highlighting changes implemented to increase school safety. Senate Bill 7026 became law in Florida after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, where 17 people were killed on Feb. 14. However, local school safety improvements were already unfolding before the massacre occurred. The law requires every public school to have a school resource officer or armed guard in place by Oct. 1. When school starts the first day of school there will be a deputy sheriff in every school, said Murray Smith, Columbia County Sheriffs Office public information officer. Sheriff Hunter has always been an advocate of having a deputy in every school simply because there is more to what a law enforcement officer does than just security. Security is obviously our primary focus, but with law enforcement officers, you get more benefits than just a security guard. Security is the primary reason were doing this, but there is also factors with having law enforcement in schools that go far beyond than just having a person in there with a gun. Not only will the school resource deputies play a role in actively protecting the schools, Smith said theyll also be allowed to make suggestions for ways to improve school safety through their daily observations. Lex Carswell, Columbia Public Schools Superintendent, said the school district plans to have at least 11 more school resource deputies for the upcoming school year.School Resource DeputiesColumbia County schools currently have seven school resource deputies. The officers work at secondary schools throughout the county. To comply with the new law, more than twice the number of school resource deputies are needed. We respond to our elementary schools on an as needed basis and have general patrol go there just to interact with the students, said Sgt. Tim Ball, Columbia County Sheriffs Office supervisor for school resource deputies. Of course were there for safety and security of the campus and the staff and students, however we are also there for the rapport and the relationships we can build with the youths of the county. Carswell said school board officials are scheduled to vote on a contract with the Columbia County Sheriffs Office that will provide a school resource officer in every public school at its next board meeting. Were going to have 19 resource officers hired through a contract with the sheriffs office to provide a certified school resource officer in every school, including Belmont Academy, Carswell said, noting the deputies will be armed. The school resource deputies will remain on campus each day from a predetermined time before classes begin to a predetermined time after classes are completed. The plan of action is to have the deputies on campus when the students begin to arrive and then remain on campus through the afternoon dismissal, Ball said. The school resource deputies will not be tasked with covering extracurricular activities. Security at these activities fall under different guidelines. Ball said having deputies on campus day-to-day and interacting with the students helps them establish relationships. It leads to a lot bigger realm than just investigating crimes, he said. It gives them a chance to come to that deputy when they have a problem, too. We wear many hats and one of the ones we wear that probably more important than any of the others is that of a counselor. Ball has been a school resource deputy for eight years and said some of the relationships he established with students continues when they become citizens. That rapport carries on into the community later in life, he said. By having a deputy on every campus, not only will it improve the response time in case of an incident, because theyre here already, but their presence is also a deterrent. Having 19 school resource deputies provides enough law enforcement personnel for program supervision, personnel relief in case an incident and a deputy has to leave campus and can be replaced so there is no break in the schools security. Smith said the Columbia County Sheriffs Office has most of the personnel that will serve as school resource deputies. We dont have all of them yet, but were close, Smith said. My understanding is we have all our personnel identified and ready to come on board. The Columbia County Sheriffs Office plans to use veteran law enforcement officers as school resource deputies. Were not putting brand new people in a school, Smith said. They have to be experienced and by our policy, they have to have two years experience and additionally they have to be trained as a school resource deputy. Some of that may be waived because they do their training during the summer. Were going to do our best to bring on people who have been in the schools before and are familiar with those policies.The law and budgetsState funding for 7026 will come from grants through the Crime Stoppers Trust Fund. The state has appropriated $400,000,000 for the law. The Columbia County School district received more than $1,000,000 in state funding from Senate Bill 7026. The school district is slated to give more than $758,000 from the funding for additional school resource officers. The funding is scheduled to continue until June 30, 2019. The law says the funding is recurring, but each legislative session, they delve out the money they want to delve out for the priorities that they want, Carswell said. I dont see this being unfunded. I think this is going to be a priority for a long time. Despite more than $1 million coming from the state, Mark Hunter, Columbia County Sheriff, said there will be a $170,000 shortfall that the Columbia County Sheriffs Office will have to cover. The Columbia County Sheriffs Office fiscal year begins in Oct. 1, while the school districts fiscal year begins July 1. The sheriff is basically having to take care of that Officers will be stationed in all facilities.The school resource deputies will remain on campus each day from a predeter mined time before classes begin to a predetermined time after classes are completed.

as serious. The investigation is on going at the moment, FHP Public Affairs Officer Lt. Pat Riordan said on Saturday, adding that he was unsure if Trooper Brian Bates had as of yet interviewed Burnham as part of the investigation. Riordan added that to the best of his knowledge the cow was killed, but was uncertain if the motorcycle involved was the only vehicle that struck it. OBITUARIES Local 9-ball champs headed to Vegas COURTESYLocal amateur billiard team The Rack Splitters are going to Las Vegas after their 9-Ball tournament win last weekend in Palatka. From left are: Thomas Gordon, of Lake City; Don Edwards, of Live Oak; Aaron and Brandy Sellers, of Live Oak; Robert J.R. and Amanda Davis, of Lake City; Bill and Holly Chopie, of Lake City. Team of Lake City, Live Oak residents go for the big prize.By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comThe Rack Splitters are going to Sin City where theyll cue up against teams from across the globe in a Vegas-sized international pool hall showdown of amateur champs, dubbed the Worlds Largest Pool Tournament. The Lake City billiards team secured their spot at the American Poolplayers Association World Pool Championships in August in Las Vegas after a recent third-place tournament win in Palatka at the 2018 9-Ball World Pool Championship. Last weekend the eight person pool team squared off against over 30 teams from central and North Florida and left with the third place title for the MidNorth Florida region. Team Captain Robert R.J. Davis said around 3 a.m. on Monday they brought home a new trophy to grace the rack of their local practice pool hall of choice Moose Lodge #624. The Rack Splitters captain said they attained what they previously thought unattainable. Namely, they were going to Las Vegas for a 9-Ball shoot out against other APA champions from America, Canada and Japan. This will be our first trip to Vegas, Davis said. Davis said the championship had been the subject of a good deal of pool-table side talk between practice shots. Oh yes were still excited, Davis said, referring to a strict twice a week practice regimen. We play every week regardless, even though we won our trip to Vegas, we still play. The Rack Splitters are made up of Lake City and Live Oak residents Thomas Gordon, Don Edwards, Aaron and Brandy Sellers, Bill and Holly Chopie along with Davis and his wife Amanda. Davis said securing the championship was always a pipe dream and little more than a what-if conversation between himself and his fellow teammate and wife, Amanda. Weve always said well never make it to Vegas, Davis said. Its about time weve been playing for a while. The Rack Splitters, the teams name, or nom de pool stick, have played for three years in the APA, though he said most members have played together for about 11 years. They practice against teams in local bars and pool halls throughout Lake City and all over North Florida. He said their team members have families and work full-time and a few are retirees. Theyre enthusiasts, he said. Billiards is their hobby and one they make room for in their lives. When hes not by a pool table, as a project manager of a local engineering firm, Davis is at a construction site. We play for the recognition, and the bragging rights, and the trophy, he said.

Once they (staff members) were able to see the information we were able to better determine there was going to be additional time needed in order to complete a thorough background on these individuals, Greene said. After Joe Helfenberger and Danielle Judd were selected as the two finalists for the position, it was Greene who provided the police department with the information she obtained from the initial background checks she had conducted. The postponement was authorized by Mayor Stephen Witt, after Greene briefed him about a possible delay. I think this additional time is going to be beneficial to the city council, Greene said. I would hope that everybody would want to ensure that with both candidates weve done the most due diligence that we can. This is a huge decision for our council, and for our community, so if staff felt it needed the additional time in order to complete a thorough investigation, I think its in the best interests of the city for us to do so. On Friday afternoon city clerk Audrey Sikes said the meet and greet event has been rescheduled for 5-7 p.m. Monday, July 9. A special called city council meeting, for the second round of city manager interviews and discussion and final selection of the city manager, will take place 9 a.m. Tuesday, July 10. The reception had been planned for Monday and the final selection for Tuesday. CITYContinued From 1A COWContinued From 1A Canada to participate. After a 20-hour trek, Gurr, who has raced for a decade, summed the event up. Its awesome, he said. He was making adjustments to his car Saturday and waiting to learn if he qualified for the main event. We dont have a lot of tracks around where were from so we have to come to the States for most of our stuff, he said. But its really good. I mean the level of competition is as good as it can get, so it really shows you how youre doing. Out of all the places weve raced this has been great because its such a big event its gotta be good. A number of racer came from across the state. Florida falls in ROAR (Remotely Operated Auto Racers) Region 4, along with Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Ricardo Jordao, of Miami said it was the biggest in event in the country for RC racing. This is the main, main event, said Jordao. You have people from everywhere here. His teammates, Doug and Justin Fales, were from Fort Lauderdale. The said the facility was good, but the location made the event. We went to one in Indiana and everything was like 15 20 minutes away, said Doug Fales, team manager. Here you just drive right down the road (to) plenty of restaurants, hotels. Its convenient and theyve done a lot to make it special with the big Jumbotron. Jordao agreed. Its not your typical middle of nowhere race were actually pretty pleased with the location, he added. Races were scheduled to resume at 8 a.m. today. RACERSContinued From 1A
Reprinted from February 2013.When I was 12 years old, I got the only F I ever got in school. I got it in music class for choosing not to sing alone in front of the whole class. My music teacher was Miss Ann Wilby and she was a good teacher. One day the class got noisy and she told us not to talk anymore or we would have to sing a solo in front of the class. Friend Jesse Thomas and I exchanged some whispers about something, and got caught, and she called me to the front of the class to sing. This was bad news for me. First I could not sing a lick (and still cant). Second, I was so painfully shy that standing in front of the class and doing anything would have been hard for me. So, I didnt go to the front of the class, just kept sitting quietly where I was. If she had required me to mop the floor every day for a month after school, I would have shown up faithfully with mop and bucket. If she had required me to write I must not talk in class 1,000 times by the next day, I would have stayed up all night and done it. But to sing in front of the class, I simply could not bring myself to do it. So, I stayed in my seat. Sure enough, when report cards came out, I had an F in music, and oh, how I dreaded taking that report card home for Daddy to sign. I knew he would not whip me. That was not his way. Still, I felt just terrible because I had let him down. I had made an F! Any time in the past when I had handed Daddy my report card he had simply looked at it, signed it, and handed it back to me to return to school. That also happened this time. The Bible says, The guilty flee when no man pursueth and I felt so guilty I had to tell him about the F and why I got it. He could see how upset I was. He said, Come sit with me and we headed for the sofa and sat, side by side. Then, to my amazement, my Daddy, an extremely quiet man, started singing Suwannee River in perfect tune. It was beautiful. I said, Daddy, I didnt know you could sing. And he said, Do you love me more now that you know I can sing? Shocked by the question, I said, No Sir! I love you because youre my Daddy. And he said softly, And I dont love you any less because of some grade you got on your report card. I love you because you are my son. Then, Get washed up. Your Mama has supper on the table. And that ended it. Some things parents say to their kids goes in one ear and out the other. Other things stay with you the rest of your life. Obviously what Daddy said to me that day has stayed with me to this day. Im writing this today because my daddy died 50 years ago and my mind is very much on him. My Daddy, R.O. Williams (Raymond Oscar), died at 83, long gone from this earth but forever in my mind and heart. In memoriam, Happy Fathers Day, Daddy.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINIONEntrepreneurial spirit still alive in Lake CityDavid Heringer, one of the bright individuals behind the successful Infinity Con event in Lake City, is letting his entrepreneurial spirit flow in a new direction. As explained in a story on todays front page, Heringer is looking to establish an events center in the old Blockbuster building near the Lake City Mall. Sounds ambitious and expensive, which it is on both counts. As for funding, he is trying something a little different. Hes planning to use an online app called Kickstarter to get the public to put up some portion of the necessary cash. This editorial is by no means an endorsement of such an investment. How you spend your money is your business, not ours. However, one particular line in a Facebook video promoting the project struck us as perfectly on point. A lot of event centers are public-tax money funded so they can bring tourism dollars into town, Heringer says on camera. That is not whats happening here. Were not using government funding. We are a private business that is raising the funds for this. Yes, hes asking the public for help again, were not here to pitch for him but thats a lot different than the City Council or County Commission, which just takes without asking. (And theyve both been doing a whole lot of taking lately.) The entrepreneurial spirit lives in on Lake City, though it may take a different form than youre used to. Still, if the Gateway City Event Center one day comes to life, youll have to give David Heringer credit for doing it all without one dime of taxpayer money that wasnt given of the individual taxpayers own free will. As taxes and fees continue to climb in city and county alike, that is quite a refreshing thought. Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY My one and only FOn this date: In 1775, the Revolutionary War Battle of Bunker Hill took place near Boston. The battle (which actually occurred on Breeds Hill) was a costly victory for the British, who suffered heavy losses while dislodging the rebels. In 1885, the Statue of Liberty arrived in New York Harbor aboard the French ship Isere. In 1928, Amelia Earhart embarked on a trans-Atlantic flight from Newfoundland to Wales with pilots Wilmer Stultz and Louis Gordon, becoming the first woman to make the trip as a passenger. Putting the chill on open recordsFloridians have a constitutional right to access public records. Unfortunately, governments and their agencies increasingly are viewing the exercise of that right as a nuisance, and in some cases are taking steps to punish records requests and discourage others. A recent GateHouse Media report covered a case in which the South Florida Water Management District sued the Everglades Law Center, a nonprofit environmental law firm that had requested records from a closed-door meeting. That meeting led to an $18 million taxpayer-funded settlement for a mining company, from the district and the Martin County Commission. A judge sided with water managers who refused to turn over the transcripts, and the decision is on appeal. We didnt sue them. They sued us. All we did was ask for records, said Lisa Interlandi, an attorney with the Everglades Law Center. Attorneys for the water management district said the records request was designed to make the district pay the legal fees of the requesters if the documents were not surrendered quickly. Thats been a common excuse from governments, and there is some validity to it. There are gadflies who file a blizzard of records requests hoping to overwhelm public agencies and catch them in a technical violation of the states Sunshine Law, so they can sue them and then collect remuneration. Or some make repeated voluminous requests simply hoping to find something wrong without thought to the time and cost involved that overwhelm the record keepers In 2017, a bill in the Legislature attempted to combat that tactic by changing the law from requiring that the person requesting the records be entitled to attorneys fees, to making it an option for judges to award fees. A compromise passed. The South Florida Water Management District suit represents an alarming escalation of that tactic, turning the government into the aggressor in denying citizens their rights to access records. Its punitive, designed to bully others into reconsidering filing records requests. It turns on its head the states Sunshine Law, which is aimed at limiting government power to conceal information while guaranteeing citizens access. At least one chamber of the Legislature recognizes that. A bill sponsored earlier this year by Sen. Keith Perry, R-Gainesville, and Rep. Ray Rodrigues, R-Estero, would have prohibited governments from filing lawsuits against those seeking public records. The measure was approved by the House 108-0, but died in the Senate Judiciary Committee, after the Florida League of Cities raised concerns about the measures potential sweep. Lawmakers should revisit the matter in next years session and address the cities issues, with the goal of crafting a bill that ultimately will protect the integrity of the open-records law. Governments are custodians of records, not the owners. The records belong to the public. They shouldnt have to beg or sue to get them or fear reprisals for requesting them.Panama City News HeraldFirst I could not sing a lick (and still cant).

(shortfall) up until Oct. 1, Smith said. This year, for this time frame, were eating it. Smith said the sheriffs office budget is absorbing the unexpected $170,000 hit by not filling positions that employees have vacated. We would normally turn that money back in or put it in a reserve account, but were not having to use that money to salaries, he said. ...The school board was able to come up with all this money except $170,000 and Sheriff Hunter is not going to leave a school unprotected over that amount of money. Hell pull someone for attrition or not hire someone before he leaves that school unprotected.School safetyJudy Tatem is the school districts newly-appointed School Safety Specialist. For the past 20 years the school district has had a position that handled counseling and safe school operations. The office is primarily to ensure we have counselors, mental health counselors and safe schools, Carswell said. Senate Bill 7026 states that every school district must have a school administrator that oversees school safety in every district, reporting directly to the superintendent. Tatem will coordinate school district safety plans with the Columbia County Sheriffs Office. She will also serve as the local contact with the state level and other school districts from around the state. Senate Bill 7026 provided the Columbia School District with $320,000 to hire mental health counselors. Carswell said interviews are currently underway for mental health counselors and the school district will probably to hire four of them with the $320,000 in state funding. Once the four are hired, the school district will then have a total of five mental health counselors. Melrose Park Elementary School already had a mental health counselor thats funded through a separate grant. Carswell said that in August, when the school year began last year, upgrades were done to create single entry points into each school. Weve been working on safe schools way before the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, he said. (School board member) Keith Hudson, in a board meeting in August, gave a directive that he wanted all our schools to have single entry points. We started working on that in August and for the most part all our schools are single entry point facilities. This is something that has been a priority of this board and everybody on the board for a long time, not just since the shooting. The school board created a mental health awareness campaign in January named I am Listening.Guardian ProgramSenate Bill 7026 also included a provision for a Guardian Program, where the sheriff and school board could eventually agree to arming select school employees on campus. We are not doing that now, but we might do that one day, Carswell said. The board, Sheriff Mark Hunter, and I have agreed to take that a little bit slower. The Guardian Program requires at least 144 hours of training and it also includes a mental health screening. The Guardian Program has been tabled for this year in the Columbia School District, but Smith said Hunter has also indicated that he will ask school district officials for the Guardian Program as a back up in the future. Under the Guardian program, selected school employees will be qualified to carry a concealed weapon on campus with a focus on security.

Ive looked at some other spaces, some other buildings, but none of them were really centrally located like I wanted, he said. Heringer said he was in phase one planning with the project, which will include a two-room event area. The Desoto room, at roughly 7,000 square feet, will have a 650 person maximum capacity, while a smaller space called the Five Points meeting room will hold about 50. Its a huge space, but kind of gets looked over because nothings there, he said. The center will be located between Gamestop and Cicis Pizza. He said it would afford hundreds of parking spaces for potential renters and event attendants. Heringer said hes looked into similar venues in surrounding cities and said Lake City would be both unique and ideal due to its placement at the junction of two major interstate highways. Hes also a co-creator of Infinity Con, the growing comic book, science fiction and gaming convention held each year in Lake City. The event center is a project he said hes worked on for about five years now and was encouraged by the business growth in the area and the success of downtown breweries and restaurants. Gateway Event Center will also serve as a host location for the Gateway City Event Series, Heringer said. As somebody who lives here we want to see more entertainment, he said. The quarterly series is slated to bring comedians, theatrical performances and concerts to the area. Heringer said hes now in the fundraising stage of the project and has a developed a campaign through which contributions can be made for sponsorships and incentives like deals on space rentals and season passes to the event series. Theyll be a sponsorship option for a business at one of the spots of the event series, he said. Altogether the center is roughly 10,000 square feet, and each event in the GCES can hold up to a crowd of about 500 with a concession bar set to have, wine, beer soda and snacks.

The Lake City Reporters Boys Weightlifter of the Year will be unveiled on Tuesday By JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comComing off of its first regional final appearance since 2014, this season didnt go quite as planned for Columbia. With high hopes of reaching the state tournament, the Lady Tigers were bounced in the opening round of the playoffs by Bartram Trail but it wasnt for lack of effort by third baseman Story Giebeig. With her team trailing 5-0, the rising senior delivered a two-run double in the fifth inning to give her team some life. Although the Lady Tigers lost 7-5, that at-bat epitomized Giebeigs No. 1 characteristic shes ultra competitive and never gives up. I dont like to lose, Giebeig said. We had a rough game and the girl wasnt really throwing that well so at the plate I was just trying to hit the ball hard. Columbia didnt lose many games this season and Giebeig was a big reason why. She hit a team-best .462 and was second on the team with 30 RBI, two home runs, 25 runs scored and a .545 on-base percentage to help lead the Lady Tigers to a 21-5 record. Oh, and she also had team-highs with 14 doubles and 15 stolen bases. Her outstanding numbers are why shes the Lake City Reporters Softball Player of the Year. I thought it went pretty good, Giebeig said of her season. At the plate I just tried to put the bat on the ball and have good at-bats all season. Playing third base I just tried to make as few errors as possible. As team captain, Giebeig manages to show her eagerness to win while staying on an even keel at all times, never getting too high or too low in high-pressure situations. And she certainly wasnt going down without a fight against Bartram Trail. Giebeig energized her team with her two-run double that eventually led to Dara Gaylards three-run homer in the seventh inning before Columbia finally came up short. Her leadership also doesnt go unnoticed.

U.S. OPENJohnson in 4-way tie after day of survivalBRIAN CIANCIO/TNSDustin Johnson hits from the 1st tee during the third round of the 2018 U.S. Open on Saturday at Shinnecock Hills Country Club in Southampton, N.Y. By DOUG FERGUSON Associated PressSOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. The only thing that spared Dustin Johnson from another U.S. Open implosion is that everyone around him suffered on a Shinnecock Hills course that even the USGA conceded got out of hand Saturday afternoon. Daniel Berger and Tony Finau were the exceptions, each posting a 4-under 66 before Johnson hit his first shot. The worlds No. 1 player faced greens that felt like putting on glass, so slick that Phil Mickelson swatted a ball while it was still moving on the 13th green. No one in the final 22 groups broke par. Johnson, who started the third round with a fourshot lead, barely nudged his 17-foot birdie attempt on the 18th hole and watched it roll and roll 8 feet by the hole. He missed the par putt and signed for a 77 to fall into a four-way tie for the lead. I didnt feel like I played badly at all, Johnson said. Seven over usually is a terrible score, but with the greens the way they got this afternoon, I mean they were very, very difficult.

Realmuto homered twice and had four RBIs off Alex Cobb, and the Miami Marlins beat the skidding Orioles 5-4 on Saturday. Realmuto singled in a run in the first inning, hit a two-run shot in the third and led off the sixth with his ninth home run on a 3-1 pitch. It was his fourth career multihomer game, the second this season. Former Oriole Wei-Yin Chen (2-3) limit ed Baltimore to three runs over six innings to earn his first victory since April 28. Drew Steckenrider worked the ninth for his first save, putting Miami in position to complete its initial series sweep of the season on Sunday. Cobb (2-9) allowed five runs on seven hits over seven innings. Hes given up a total of 14 runs in his last two starts. Miami hit leadoff doubles in the first and second innings, with both runners coming around to score. Realmuto followed a walk with a home run in the third to make it 4-0. In the Baltimore third, Machado hit a two-out, two-run single to increase his RBI total to 52. Schoop went deep in the sixth and an RBI single by Danny Valencia got Baltimore to 5-4 in the seventh.Kawhi Leonard wants a trade from Spurs(AP) Kawhi Leonards time with the San Antonio Spurs may soon be over. A person familiar with the situation says Leonard has told the Spurs that he would like to be traded this summer, the clearest sign yet that the relationship between the team and the All-Star is in disrepair. The person said Leonard has decided that he is unhappy with the situation in San Antonio. The person spoke with The Associated Press on Friday on condition of anonymity because neither the player nor the team commented publicly. Yahoo Sports and the San Antonio Express-News first reported Leonards hope for a trade. ESPN reported that Leonard has Los Angeles -preferably the Lakers -at the center of his preferences for a trade destination. Leonard played in only nine game with the Spurs this past season because of a leg injury officially described as right quadriceps tendinopathy, and the Spurs listed him as out on their injury reports for much of the year citing injury management. In the 2016-17 season, he averaged a career-best 25.5 points and was third in the MVP voting. Leonard is due just over $20 million next season, and can become a free agent in the summer of 2019.

The score was already 1-1 when Argentina was awarded the penalty after Hordur Magnussons tumbling fall over Sergio Aguero as both chased Messis floated cross. Messi placed his shot to the right of Hannes Halldorsson, but the Iceland goalkeeper dived and got two hands behind the ball. Aguero scored in the 19th minute but Iceland was level four minutes later when Alfred Finnbogason scored after Argentina goalkeeper Willy Caballero pushed a low cross into the forwards path for a volley from eight yards.FRANCE 2, AUSTRALIA 1In Kazan, Russia, Technology twice helped France at the World Cup on Saturday as the 1998 champions labored to beat a gritty Australia in their opening game. The French team was given a controversial penalty kick, eventually converted by Antoine Griezmann in the 58th minute, after the referee watched the replay of a foul on the sideline. Paul Pogba later scored the winning goal in the 81st minute, and goal-line technology was used to confirm the ball had crossed the line after bouncing down off the crossbar. Australia captain Mile Jedinak had briefly equalized from the penalty spot in the 62nd.DENMARK 1, PERU 0In Saransk, Russia, Whether Kasper Schmeichel was making an acrobatic save or just getting lucky, it was his night. In a World Cup debut reminiscent of the way his father, Peter, played for Denmark and Manchester United, Schmeichel made Yussuf Poulsens opportunistic second-half goal stand in a victory Saturday over Peru. Poulsen squeezed his goal between charging Peru goalkeeper Pedro Gallese and the left post in the 59th minute after collecting an angled pass from midfielder Christian Eriksen.CROATIA 2, NIGERIA 0In Moscow, Luka Modric scored on a penalty kick after Croatia went ahead on an own-goal by Nigeria in a 2-0 victory in their World Cup match on Saturday night. Nigerias Oghenekaro Etebo deflected the ball into his own net in the 32nd minute after two Croatia players had headed Modrics corner kick. Modric converted in the 71st minute when referee Sandro Ricci awarded a penalty after William Ekong held onto Mario Manduzik. It was the fifth penalty awarded in four World Cup matches Saturday.COURTESYFeel the stingThe U11 Stingers recently finished their spring travel rotation in the North Florida Youth Soccer League with a 10-0 record.

S UNDAY, JUNE 17, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER 3B OUTDOORSIconic American rounds the .38 SpecialBy MONTY STEPHENSSpecial to the ReporterIt seems amazing that the .38 Special was first developed in 1898 and is still in use today. Originally designed for the military, this cartridge became the standard law enforcement. It was designed by Smith and Wesson per request from the military to improve the performance of the .38 Long Colt. The improvements Smith and Wesson made were only marginally better than the .38 Long Colt. Velocity of the new .38 Special cartridge was only 100-150 feet per second faster than the .38 Long Colt. It was an improvement, but not by much. Keep in mind, fast burning, hot gun powders were not yet developed when this cartridge was designed, so it used black powder as its propellant. Its overall velocity in 1898 with a 200-grain bullet was estimated to be 690 feet per second. By todays standards, that is pellet gun slow, except it is hurling a large piece of lead. From the 1920s to 1970s, nearly all law enforcement officers with a revolver were using the .38 Special. But during the gangster era of the US, law enforcement asked for an improved version of the .38 Special. This was because bullets fired from a .38 Special would frequently not penetrate the auto bodies of the cars driven by escaping criminals. So in 1930, at the request of law enforcement, Smith and Wesson developed the .38 Special High Speed. This new cartridge attained velocities of 850-1000 feet per second. It was a huge improvement but it was only safe to fire in beefed up newer revolvers (Smith and Wesson N frames.) As a result, many of the smaller town Police Departments did not adopt it because they would have to buy all new guns. Smith and Wesson kept working on improving the .38 Special. In 1934, they developed a totally new version for tactical units called the .357 Magnum. This new cartridge attained velocities in the 1,350-1,400 feet per second zone, which is fast. Of interest to note, the .38 Special is not really .38 of an inch. It is actually .357 of an inch (there is story to that also, but well save that for another day). Because the .357 Magnum was so much more powerful that the .38 Special, it is not safe to shoot in a revolver made for .38 Special. So Smith and Wesson lengthened the case by an eighth of an inch or so to ensure this cartridge cannot mechanically be fired in a revolver chambered for the .38 Special. It is, however, perfectly safe to shoot .38 Special ammo in a revolver chambered for the .357 Magnum. Through this entire era, the military continued to use the .38 Special. It was used in World War I and World War II. In WWII, revolvers chambered for .38 Special were issued to pilots and air crews. They were given tracer ammo with green and red tips for signaling purposes in case they were shot down and needed to be located. For some reason, the .357 Magnum was slow to catch on. I suspect it was the hard hitting recoil. A sheriff deputy friend of mine in Mississippi told me a story about when he got his first .357 Magnum back in the 1970s. Turns out he was called to break up a bar fight in Gulfport. He ended up arresting two people and brought them to the county jail in the middle of the night. As he drove his patrol car in the compound, his headlights swung around and shone upon a prisoner climbing down bed sheets from a window on the second floor. The escapee froze so as not to be noticed. He stopped the car, pulled out his brand new .357 Magnum and took his best shot (keep in mind this was the 1970s). The suspect instantly fell and thought he was shot. Deputy Bob thought he hit him toobut he missed. Turns out the bullet exploded the bricks next to the escapee and hit him with large chunks of broken bricks. So the new saying is close only counts in horseshoes, hand grenades and the .357 Magnum. The next big improvement in the .38 Special came in the 1950s. The FBI wanted a more powerful .38 Special for their agents. In response, the .38 Special +P was developed. The +P denotes increased pressure. This new round was originally labelled Law Enforcement Use Only. This was because it attains pressure and velocities of 1,100 1,200 feet per second and is only safe to use in extra-strong .38 Special revolvers. By using +P ammo, the FBI agents could use more powerful rounds in small concealable revolvers. Today, +P ammo is readily available and it is a formidable self-defense round. This round should not be used in older revolvers chambered for the .38 Special. One hundred and twenty years after its development, the .38 Special is still very popular for shooters, hand loaders and self-defense. The military has completely dropped it but law enforcement personnel continue to use it for back-up or off-duty use. Its a fun cartridge to shoot as it has only moderate recoil. As always though, please practice gun safety and keep your firearms secured. Good shooting. COURTESYThis modern Smith and Wesson revolver has the makings of being a future classic.

4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, JUNE 17, 2018 of Lake City Specialist In: FIBERGLASS FABRICATION 386-755-6567 Steve Brown139 NW Taft Lane Lake City, FL 32055 firstname.lastname@example.org COMMENTARYOn 48th birthday, Mickelson acts like a 10-year-oldBy TIM DAHLBERGAssociated PressSOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. Phil Mickelson turned 48 on Saturday, an occasion marked by fans singing Happy Birthday at every turn. Unfortunately he ruined it by acting like a 10-yearold at the U.S. Open. And, much like a 10-yearold, he refused to admit he was wrong. If somebodys offended by that I apologize, Mickelson said after running after his golf ball on the 13th green at Shinnecock Hills and hitting it while it was still moving. But toughen up, this was not meant that way. Actually it was, because what happened on the slippery 13th green at Shinnecock wasnt just a case of a golfer losing his head momentarily in anger. That, at least, might have been excusable, even for a player in his 27th Open who clearly knows better. No, this was Mickelsons attempt to be the smartest guy in golf once again. This was his way to bend the rules and take a shot at the USGA at the same time for making the green so difficult. And Mickelson should know theres no place for that kind of behavior on any golf course, much less in the national championship. His playing partner surely did. Its something you might see at your home course with your mates or something, Andrew Johnston said. But it was just a moment I think its just a moment of madness. The moment was one thing. Mickelsons explanation was another. If the former wasnt enough to get him kicked out of the Open, the latter should make everyone in golf take pause. Think about it. One of the greatest players in the world literally running after a putt moving down a hill and swinging his putter like a miniature hockey stick to knock it back toward the hole. Then explaining it all away by saying he was simply taking advantage of the rules. I know the rules, Mickelson said. Its a twoshot penalty. I gladly take the two-shot penalty. Mickelson got his penalty, though it hardly mattered. He shot 81 in the third round and at 17 over par wasnt going to be a factor on Sunday anyway. But for arguably the greatest short game player in the world to insist he did what he did to avoid playing another shot from in front of the green was disingenuous at best, and dishonest at its worst. He could have easily made a score better than the 10 he ended up writing down on his scorecard. But he simply wasnt going to try. Worse yet, there was clearly some premeditation involved. Mickelson said he had thought about doing the same thing many times, including on the tricky 15th green at the Masters. And he proudly pointed out that he took 11 drops at a tournament in 2006 before getting one he liked and went on to win the tournament. Sometimes it gets a little goofy, sure, but its all within the rules, he said. Players bending the rules is nothing new, of course. But imagine what would have happened if Mickelson would have tried the same stunt at Augusta National, which doesnt tend to tolerate such behavior. The guys in the green jackets would have sent him packing before he had a chance to change out of his golf shoes. Yes, Saturday was bru tal at Shinnecock, where the wind blew and the final twosome of Dustin Johnson and Scott Piercy combined for an 81 on the front side. But Tony Finau teed off 33 minutes before Mickelson and managed to shoot a 4-under 66, so it wasnt like it was totally unplayable. Mickelson has made no secret in the past of his dislike for some Open setups, which might be one reason hes never won an Open. Yet he came this week talking about how it should be a great tournament because it was set up for skill to win, not luck. Then he goes out and makes a Happy Gilmore move on one of golfs biggest stages. John Daly did it in the 1999 U.S. Open at Pinehurst, so its not like its never happened before. But Daly never made any pretense about who he was, unlike arguably the most popular player in the game. Johnston and Mickelson shared a laugh about it going off the 13th green, but Johnston wasnt quite sure what he was laughing about. It was so strange because I dont think anyone had them thoughts, Johnston said. No one ever has them thoughts. And it just happened. And thats all I can really say about it. Mickelson could say more, plenty more. Starting with a real apology for a dumb idea. have gone in the hole that didnt. And thats the difference between shooting 7 over and even par. At least he still has a chance, and he had plenty more company at the top than at the start of the day. Johnson joined Berger, Finau and defending champion Brooks Koepka (72) at 3-over 213, the highest 54-hole score to lead the U.S. Open since the fabled Massacre at Winged Foot in 1974. It was the first time since Oakmont in 2007 that no one was under par going into the final day. With wind that was stronger than expected, and a few pin positions that turned the U.S. Open into carnival golf, it was easy to see why. Mickelson brought plenty of attention to the 13th hole, where anything that ran by the cup was headed off the green. Worst yet might have been No. 15, where players hit putts by the hole only to watch them roll all the way off the putting surface. Koepka hit an approach to 15 near the hole, and it moved a few inches to the right, and then a few more feet, and soon it was in a bunker. You were seeing shots that were well played and not rewarded, said Mike Davis, the chief executive of the USGA. It was a very tough test, but probably too tough this afternoon. Berger and Finau, who started the day 11 shots out of the lead, will play in the final group. I barely made the cut. Going into today, I needed something special to happen to even have an outside chance, Finau said as Johnson and Scott Piercy were making their way down the first fairway in the final group. Whether I do or not at the end of today, Im really happy with where Im at. Finau and Berger never have played in the final group at a major. Right behind them will be the last two U.S. Open champions. Koepka made only two birdies in his hard-earned round of 72, leaving him poised to become the first player since Curtis Strange in 1989 to win back-to-back in the U.S. Open. Only three players broke par, all before the final groups teed off. If theyd have shot 4 under this afternoon, it would probably have been the best round of golf anybodys ever seen, Koepka said. Two other major champions Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson were right behind, and both had a share of the lead at one point. Both had three straight bogeys. Rose wound up with a 73 and was one shot behind at 214. Stenson had a 74 and was another shot back. The return to Shinnecock Hills was supposed to make the U.S. Open feel like a traditional test that felt more like survival. Be care what you wish for, Rose said. Weve all been asking for a real U.S. Open again. So I guess we got one for sure this week. And typical of an oldstyled U.S. Open, there were plenty of complaints. Im going to find Mike Davis, Pat Perez said after signing for a 77. Its the U.S. Open. Its supposed to be hard. When is enough enough? Its not about hard. Theres no other tournament where you see the guys putt off the greens. Not all the statements were verbal. Mickelson celebrated his 48th birthday by matching his worst score in his 27th U.S. Open with an 81.U.S OPENUSGA apologizes for unfair course in rough 3rd roundBy BARRY WILNERAssociated PressSOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. Shinnecock Hills is one of the toughest challenges in golf. The last thing it needs is being turned into an unfair layout. Yet the USGA admitted the course got out of hand Saturday in the third round of the U.S. Open, and apologized for it. Only three players shot under par: co-leaders Daniel Berger and Tony Finau with 66s, and Kiradech Aphibarnrat with a 68. Two others were at even par, Gary Woodland and Brian Gay. Meanwhile, there were eight rounds of 80 or higher, including Rickie Fowler with an 84 and Phil Mickelson at 81. The average score was 75.33 on the par-70 course, but the afternoon rounds among the leaders skewed much higher. It was a tale of two golf courses, and no doubt, we would admit, well-executed shots were not only not regarded, but were punished, said Mike Davis, the chief executive of the USGA and the man in charge of course setup. We would say that it was a very tough test, and really too tough this afternoon. Heres how tough: Among those in the final six groups to tee off, the average score was 76.6. Those were, supposedly, the best golfers in the field through two rounds. Nobody enjoys that, said Russell Knox, who shot 75, two shots better than Dustin Johnson, who blew a four-shot lead to fall into a four-way tie at the top. I think they misjudged the strength of the wind. I dont think it crossed the line, but it was as hard of golf as we can play. Today was a different animal. At the last U.S. Open here, Shinnecock Hills gained notoriety for slick greens that had to be watered between groups. The seventh hole became so unmanageable that some likened it to putting on linoleum. Id say its a little bit over the line, Henrik Stenson said after shooting a 74 despite being pretty happy with the way I played today. Added defending champion Brooks Koepka, the fourth player in the firstplace tie: Lets put it this way. If theyd have shot 4 under this afternoon, it would probably have been the best round of golf anybodys ever seen. Davis promised to slow down the course for Sundays final round. You saw some low scores this morning; those hole locations actually work, Davis said. Having said that, this golf course will get slowed down tonight. There will be water applied to it. That process began on some holes even before Johnson bogeyed No. 18 to fall into that four-way tie at 3 over par.BRIAN CIANCIO/TNS Dustin Johnson reacts to a missed putt on the 18th green during the third round of the 2018 U.S. Open on Saturday at Shinnecock Hills Country Club in Southampton, N.Y.

6B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, JUNE 17, 2018 GATORS NOTEBOOKSinger named winner of Dick Howser TrophyFrom staff reportsOMAHA, Neb. Florida pitcher Brady Singer has been honored with the Dick Howser Trophy as college baseballs player of the year. Singer, who received the award Friday, carries a 12-1 record and 2.30 ERA into the College World Series. The native of Eustis, Florida, was the No. 18 overall pick in the Major League Baseball draft by the Kansas City Royals. Singer is the second Florida player to win the award, following Mike Zunino in 2012. The Dick Howser Trophy is given in memory of the former Florida State All-America shortstop and major league player and manager who died of cancer in 1987. The winner is determined by a vote of National College Baseball Writers Association members and presented by the College Baseball Foundation.Florida closer Byrne named NCBWA Stopper of the YearFlorida junior Michael Byrne was named the 2018 Stopper of the Year on Saturday at TD Ameritrade Park. The award is presented annually by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association to the nations top relief pitcher. Byrne is the first UF player to win the award since its inception in 2005. The junior from Orlando is a twotime All-American and All-SEC First Team selection. Byrne holds the school record for saves in a season (19 in 2017) and saves in a career (34). Byrne has been dominant in 2018, posting a 1.59 earned run average with 15 saves in 34 appearances. He has 60 strikeouts to just five walks in 56.2 innings pitched while limiting opponents to a .197 batting average. In the Gainesville Super Regional, Byrne appeared in all three games with 10 strikeouts in 6.1 innings. He picked up the win in the decisive Game 3 with four shutout innings out of the bullpen to lead the Gators to the College World Series for the fourth year in a row. Byrne has a 1.88 earned run average in 85 career appearances. He has 168 strikeouts with only 23 walks in 148.1 innings in three years at Florida. Only two players have been finalists for the Stopper of the Year Award: Shaun Anderson (2016) and Byrne (2017 and 2018). Byrne was selected in the 14th Round of the 2018 MLB Draft by the Cincinnati Reds.COURTESY OF UF ATHLETICSFlorida pitcher Brady Singer has a 12-1 record and a 2.30 ERA this season. man and a kid who grew up across the street from the Tech campus. Honestly, I almost gave up baseball when I was probably 13 or 14, Davis said. I went to Lubbock High School, kind of fell in love with it again my freshman year, made varsity, played varsity for four years, and really got back into it. ... I couldnt be happier with where Im at in my life right now. Davis 12th homer of the season was a tiebreaking two-run shot that put Texas Tech ahead to stay in their super regional clincher against Duke. While the Red Raiders didnt win the Big 12 regular season title this year after being the preseason favorite, or even the conference tournament, they swept through the NCAA Lubbock Regional and got to host their third super regional after Duke upset No. 8 national seed Georgia in the Athens Regional. Texas Tech lost seven of 10 games late in the regular season. That stretch included losing consecutive Big 12 series at TCU and at home against Texas, the other Big 12 team going to Omaha and in the same bracket as the Red Raiders. Really proud of the team, Davis said. Battled back and showed up Monday and walked away with it. After dropping a pair of one-run games in their first CWS appearance in 2014, including the opener to Big 12 foe TCU, the Red Raiders dropped their 2016 opener in Omaha another one-run loss to TCU. The victory over Florida followed before being eliminated by national champion Coastal Carolina. They didnt get to go back to Omaha last year. Needing to win only one more game in the Lubbock Regional, they instead dropped consecutive one-run games to Sam Houston State. It was one of those things that you have such high expectations every year now. When I got here my freshman year, they had just gotten to Omaha, Davis said. When you lose the way we did, youre 2-0 and then you drop the next two in that regional, it hurts. During a team meeting Wednesday, Tadlock asked if any of the older guys had anything they wanted to say. Martin told his teammates about one of his 2016 memories not his seven scoreless innings, but about the kids in the outfield stands during batting practice. I think coach Tadlock was expecting something inspirational, said Martin, who recalled the team going through about three buckets of balls their first day in Omaha two years ago. I said about 3,000 kids want a ball. ... you get one ball to give away. TECH Continued From 1B COLLEGE WORLD SERIESTar Heels knock out Heimlich early, beat Beavers in opener theyre loud in what they do, but Story just stays calm, Columbia coach Trudy Andrews said. She stays composed and shes competitive. She has that inner-fight Tiger in her that comes out and battles in whatever situation shes put in. Giebeig, a Liberty commit, took over at third this season following the departure of Alaina Perry. After playing in the position for years on her travel ball team the Gainesville Gold, Giebeig slid over from second and felt right at home. Ive always played third base for travel ball and for Liberty I was recruited to play third base so it wasnt that big of a deal. I was real excited, Giebeig said. She didnt disappoint either, posting a .933 fielding percentage in the hot corner. She was just rock solid. You cant ask for a better third baseman out there, Andrews said. Shes quick, she reads the ball off the bat well, she reads the batter well and she remembers them too when they come up again where they hit it and what they do. Shes rock steady in the corner. Although the Lady Tigers didnt advance as deep into the playoffs as the year before, expectations are high for 2019. Columbia only loses one starter shortstop S.K. Lewis and will likely be considered one of the favorites in the region next season. We should be strong again next year too, Giebeig said. She even has hopes beyond regions in her final campaign. I want to win a state championship. STORYContinued From 1BFILEColumbia third baseman Story Giebeig hit a team-best .462 and was second on the team with 30 RBI, two home runs, 25 runs scored and a .545 on-base percentage. By ERIC OLSONAssociated PressOMAHA, Neb. It took nearly 4 1/2 hours in 95-degree heat to play the opening game of the College World Series. Time flew for North Carolina coach Mike Fox. He was having fun. The Tar Heels knocked out Oregon State ace Luke Heimlich during a five-run third inning and went on to beat the Beavers 8-6 on Saturday. I liked being in the thirdbase coaching box in the top of the third. Felt I was out there for a while, Fox said. For me, the more youre out there, the better. I get it. It was a long game. But theyre not long for me, and theyre not long for the coaches and players. Sometimes its agonizing for the people watching. Were not trying to drag it out by design. The Tar Heels (44-18) used six pitchers in a 4-hour, 24-minute slog that was the longest nine-inning game in CWS history. They turned back threats in the sixth and seventh innings and pre vailed against an opponent they hadnt faced since losing to the Beavers in the 2006 and CWS finals. The Tar Heels built leads of 6-1 and 8-4, but Oregon State (49-11-1) was poised to go ahead in the seventh after loading the bases with two outs against Josh Hiatt and Steven Kwan coming to bat. Kwan had reached base on his first four trips to the plate and had struck out only 15 times in 247 at-bats, making him one of the toughest players in the nation to strike out. Cooper Criswell came on and struck him out on three pitches. My goal is to go out and get ahead in the count. I was able to do that, Criswell said. I think he was a little froze on the second fastball I threw him. I think he might have been expecting something else. And on the slider for strike three, (Brandon Martorano) did a great job framing that pitch and getting that one for me. The Beavers were uncharacteristically sloppy while losing their third straight game over two years in Omaha. Carolina scored on a passed ball, and the Beavers committed three errors after making one in their first five NCAA Tournament games. Then there was Heimlich (16-2), the two-time Pac-12 pitcher of the year who lasted just 2 1/3 innings his shortest start in two years. The first two Carolina batters reached base each of the first three innings, and the senior left-hander was charged for the Tar Heels first six runs. He hit three batters, walked one and struck out two in his shortest outing since going 2 1/3 innings against Southern California on May 21, 2016. Caden OBrien (7-0), the second Carolina pitcher, worked 1 2/3 innings for the win. Criswell pitched the last 2 1/3 innings for his first save.

GREAT TIME TO GRILL! /EAVeteran receives special visits at HavenFrom a press releaseUnited States (U.S.) Army Reserve veteran William Bill Warner had a busy day at the Haven Suwannee Valley Care Center in Lake City. Warner was first recognized for his military service by volunteer veterans as a part of the Haven Pinning Ceremony for veteran patients, which includes a veteran pin, a thank you card signed by the staff and a certificate of appreciation from Haven. The presentation ends with a salute to honor the veterans service. In addition to the veteran pinning ceremony, Warner also received a special visit from Haven Pet Visit Volunteer Wayne Thompson and his Giant Schnauzer, Zachary Taylor. Haven Social Worker Jennie Lyons also spent time with Warner. I visited with Mr. Warner during his veteran pinning ceremony and his visit with Zach and he told me it was one of the happiest days of his life, said Lyons. It is so wonderful that our amazing volunteers are able to provide patients and their families with so much happiness. Wayne and Zach have been bringing smiles to the faces of Haven patients and their families for approximately one year. I saw that Haven was looking for volunteers in the paper, told them what I wanted to do and got involved, said Wayne, a retired school teacher from Miami who relocated to Lake City approximately 17 years ago. I had seen requests for volunteers at Haven in the paper before, but thought that I would not want to do that. But after getting involved, it is an amazing experience that really goes right to your heart. Zach has been a member of Waynes family for about two and a half years and is a very unique dog. We got Zach when he was a puppy and one of the conditions was that we name him after a President of the United States. That is where he got the name Zachary Taylor, said Thompson He has spent a lot of time in his life training to be a therapy dog and he goes to obedience training once a week, but his personality is what really sets him apart. You cant breed his personality, and the way he interacts with people. That was natures gift to him. Volunteers are a vital member of the Hospice Care Team. They provide companionship, support and assistance to patients residing at home, in assisted living facilities, nursing homes, hospitals and the Suwannee Valley Care Center. They also reach out to grieving families, help staff the Attic Resale Store, assist with administrative tasks and serve on special event committees. Haven is proud to have more than 700 community members dedicating their time and talents to patients and families in 18 Florida counties. If you would like more information about becoming a volunteer in Lake City, please contact Volunteer Coordinator Lauren Pinchouck 386.752.9191.

COURTESYFlorida lawmakers and other public officials recognized the accomplisments of the Kids Tag Art program on Wednesday in Tallahassee.Art program recognized by Gov. Scott, state officialsFrom a press releaseOn Wednesday, Ronnie Brannon, tax collector for Columbia County, took part in the recognition of a program which has benefited children here in Columbia County and across Florida. It was my honor and pleasure to attend the Florida Cabinet Wednesday to see Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Cabinet recognize the Kids Tag Art program and the contributions made by Florida Tax Collectors, local School Boards and local sponsors in efforts to fund increases in Art Education for our elementary school students, Brannon said. The Governor and Cabinet recognized Florida Tax Collectors for the program, which has raised over $1 million for Florida schools through artwork sales and business contributions. 100 percent of the funds have gone directly to classroom arts education. The program has raised over $50,000 here in Columbia County since its began here in 2014, at least $18,000 of which last year alone. Over 165,000 students have participated in Kids Tag Art since the programs original inception in 2006 in Polk County. Kids Tag Art brings the government and private communities together in supporting schools. Business and community leaders are recognizing increasingly the value of an arts education in preparing children to be successful in the market place by emphasizing creativity, problem solving and innovation. The Governor and Cabinet recognized Florida Tax Collectors Kids Tag Art Program for its dedication to classroom arts education and reminded all Floridians to support their local Kids Tag Art programs as a way to raise funds for classroom art supplies, to provide a recognition program for spotlighting artistic and talented students, and to highlight the importance of creative self-expression and innovative problem-solving through arts education. Even more impressive, to date, the Program has partnered with over 300 schools positively impacting 165,000 young student artists in the creation of their tag designs and it has raised over $1million in funding for classroom arts education, Commissioner Adam Putnam said. Tax Collectors issue license plates and the variety of specialty license plates available are a form of artistic expression. The program began in 2015 when the Tax Collector, Ronnie Brannon, volunteered with his staff to establish the Kids Tag Art Program in order to create opportunities for students and schools in Columbia county. Several art teachers have informed me of the new programs they have been able to implement because of the Kids Tag Art Program funding, such as the Mural Easel for producing banners and enhanced ceramic programs, Brannon said. One local art teacher indicated that: Before Kids Tag Art Program funding, my budget was well below $1 per pupil. All nine Elementary school are served by the Kids Tag Art Program in Columbia County. Each year, 25,000 students create unique vanity license plate designs and may submit their work to Tax Collectors in each respective county. Award designs in each county are announced to the public on the various Tax Collector websites. Student artwork is also made available for sale to the public in the form of vanity plates, bike tags, key fobs, mugs, mousepads, etc. With the help of generous community and business sponsors, 100 percent of the monies raised from the sale of tags goes back into the classroom for much-needed supplemental funding. Earlier this year, the Florida Tax Collectors Kids Tag Art Program was recognized by the Florida Department of State, receiving the coveted Diversity and Inclusion Award for 2018. This award honors organizations who work to make arts and cultural programming in Florida as diverse and inclusive as possible. What to do when dad walks awayDear Dave, My father died recently. He walked out of my life 25 years ago when I was a teenager, and he never wanted anything to do with me after that. His brothers, who have already paid for some of his final expenses, asked if I wanted to pay to have his body cremated. They didnt ask for money, they just offered it as a chance to be part of things. Im in good shape financially, and I could easily afford the cost. Morally, I wonder if I have a responsibility to help with things. Do you feel Im obligated in any way? Julie Dear Julie, Im sorry for your loss. Im sorry, too, about what happened with your father. I cant imagine the mixed emotions you must have in your heart. When someone asks me a question like this, I try to put myself in their shoes. Under the circumstances, I dont think you have any obligation whatsoever morally or legally to help pay for anything. If you want to help, and you can afford to do so, then follow your heart. At the same time, I dont think you should lose one wink of sleep over this if you decide not to contribute. Twenty-five years is long, long time. I dont know your dad, and I have no clue about his situation or state of mind back then and in the time since. I cant imagine doing that to a child of any age, though. Do what you feel in your heart is best. But in my opinion, theres no obligation here. God bless you, Julie. Dave Dear Dave, When is the right time to buy a house when someone is following your Baby Steps plan? Samuel Dear Samuel, Thats a good question. Lets start by going over the first few Baby Steps. Baby Step 1 is saving $1,000 for a beginner emergency fund. Baby Step 2 is paying off all consumer debt, from smallest to largest, using the debt snowball. Baby Step 3 is where you increase your emergency fund to the point where you have three to six months of expenses set aside. Once youve done all that you can begin saving for a home. Ill call it Baby Step 3b. For folks looking to buy a house, I advise saving enough money for a down payment of at least 20 percent. I dont beat people up over mortgage debt, but I do advise them to get a 15-year, fixed rate loan, where the payments are no more than 25 percent of their monthly take-home pay. Doing it this way may take a little more time, and delay your dream of becoming a homeowner a bit, but buying a house when youre broke is the quickest way I know to turn something that should be a blessing into a burden!

The latest forecast numbers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture show no change in the past month for orange production, which is off 34.7 percent from the prior growing season. Meanwhile, grapefruit production has fallen another 1.8 percent from a May forecast, coming in at half of what was picked in the prior growing season and at its lowest level in nearly a century. This brings a very difficult citrus season to a close, Shannon Shepp, executive director of the Florida Department of Citrus, said in a prepared statement. We look forward to a quiet, resilient season in the fall. Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam called the season, which included devastation from Hurricane Irma and continued battles with deadly citrus greening disease, horrible. Its important to remember that the industry is still recovering from Hurricane Irmas unprecedented damage last year, Putnam said in a statement. The season produced 44.95 million 90-pound boxes of oranges, 3.88 million similar-sized boxes of grapefruit and 750,000 boxes of specialty fruits, which include tangelos and tangerines. A year ago, the industry which has struggled against development and for a decade against citrus greening, produced enough oranges, grapefruit and other fruits to fill a combined 78.23 million boxes, which itself was a 16.7 percent drop from the 2015-2016 season. The combined 49.58 million boxes this year marks the lowest yield for growers since they filled 48.65 million boxes in the 1941-1942 season. By 1950, the industry was producing 100 million boxes a year. A big factor in this years numbers was the impact of the powerful and deadly Irma, which devastated large portions of South Floridas agricultural lands, wiping out up to 70 percent of some citrus groves as the season was getting underway. For an industry that 20 years ago filled 304 million boxes, of which 244 million were oranges and 49.55 million were grapefruit, the harvest total was especially bitter. Shepp noted that some private pre-season esti mates had growers producing enough oranges to fill 75 million boxes. With the waning production, the industry has seen its influence drop in terms of economic contributions to the state. A University of Florida study released last year found the industrys direct and indirect economic impact of $8.6 billion was a decline of 31 percent over the preceding four years. Meanwhile, with the threat of retaliatory trade tariffs from the European Union looming over the 12 million gallons of orange juice annually sent overseas, the industry continues to await federal help from Irma. A post-storm estimated put agricultural damages in Florida at $2.5 billion, with citrus accounting for $761 million of those losses. State lawmakers later upped the estimate to more than $1 billion just for citrus, but no official estimate has been issued since October. As part of a federal disaster-relief package approved by Congress in February, Florida is slated to get a share of $2.36 billion targeted for agricultural businesses impacted by hurricanes and wildfires. The money, expected to provide a multi-year bridge as replacement trees and groves mature, includes $340 million that Florida will get in the form of a block grant to help citrus farmers rebuild. State lawmakers have pushed for the program to be opened early, but the aid has not yet started. Putnam said in his release the much-needed disaster assistance is on the way to help Floridas growers. And while little change is expected, final harvest numbers for the season from the federal agriculture department will be released in July. The News Service of FloridaFloridas citrus crop has had its worst growing season since World War Two.The latest forecast numbers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture show no change in the past month for orange production, which is off 34.7 percent from the prior growing season.State unemployment rates drop slightlyFrom The News Service of FloridaFloridas unemployment rate ticked down slightly in May to 3.8 percent, mirroring the national rate, the state Department of Economic Opportunity announced Friday. The state rate had been 3.9 percent in April. The new number reflected 391,000 jobless Floridians out of a labor force of more than 10.2 million, according to the department. Gov. Rick Scott issued a statement touting job creation in the state. Floridas growing economy is producing real results for families across our state, Scott said. Every month, private-sector businesses are adding jobs, dropping our unemployment, making it easier for every Floridian to find great work. The 3.8 percent number is seasonally adjusted. The department also released county-by-county numbers that were not seasonally adjusted. In those numbers, Okaloosa and St. Johns counties had the lowest unemployment rates in May at 2.6 percent, followed by Monroe County at 2.7 percent and Walton County at 2.8 percent. Hendry and Sumter counties had the highest rates at 5 percent, while Citrus County was at 4.8 percent and Putnam County was at 4.5 percent, according to the department.

Well announce it in next weeks edition. Put each company in context, too. For example, smaller companies can grow more quickly than larger ones, as its usually easier to double $50 million than $50 billion. As companies grow larger, expect their growth rates to slow. They cant keep doubling annually forever. Annualized growth rates can also fake you out. When a company (or mutual fund) takes its total return over a number of years and annualizes it, its telling you how much it earned, on average, per year. This can be meaningful, but its smart to see exactly what period of growth is reflected, and also to check for any single outsize number that can skew the average. Groundhog City (ticker: WDCHK) may have increased its earnings from $0.50 per share in one year to $1.00 five years later, giving it an annualized growth rate of 15 percent. If Buzzys Broccoli Beer (ticker: BRRRP) doubled its earnings in three months, its annualized rate would be more like 1,500 percent. Annualizing a short periods returns can magnify the gain or loss. Those might have been extraordinary months. The closer you look at the numbers, the more you can learn.Fab-less and FabHigh-quality audio processor maker Cirrus Logic (Nasdaq: CRUS) may not be a household name, but this fabless semiconductor manufacturer (meaning it outsources the actual production of its chips) provides parts that show up in many of the items you use every day. Its chips reside in electronic offerings from LG, Nikon, Samsung and Apple to name just a few. Apples orders have been very good to Cirrus Logics income statement, accounting for 79 percent of Cirrus sales in fiscal year 2017. That has been lucrative, helping Cirrus generate free cash flow for the last 12 years including about $260 million over the last 12 months. Still, it can be risky to be so dependent on one customer though a temporary lack of highoctane growth wont spell instant doom for the audio chip supplier, as it can scrape along just fine on yesteryears Apple order volumes. This is a healthy business with no long-term debt and more than $200 million of cash reserves. Yet Cirrus shares were recently trading with a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio in the mid-teens significantly lower than its five-year P/E average of 20. That seems like an overreaction to its recent lackluster quarterly report (which cited weak smartphone sales) and an appealing opportunity for long-term investors. (The Motley Fool has recommended Cirrus Logic.) rffBad AdviceMy dumbest investment was buying stock in a wind energy company on the recommendation of a TV stock guru. The stock dropped like a rock two days later. He made his money! O., online The Fool Responds: Even skilled investors make some regrettable moves, but the problem with many investing pundits is that you never know just how good they are. Some may indeed be buying into various companies and then talking them up, which helps boost their value if others buy in. (Later, whenever they sell their shares, you rarely hear about it.) Even with trusted stock gurus, though, its best to add your own research and thinking to theirs and to make your own decisions instead of just following them blindly. Dont judge a stock by its performance over only a few days (or even months), either. The company you invested in has been a penny stock (with shares priced below about $5 per share) for most of the past decade. Its always best to steer clear of penny stocks, as they tend to belong to younger, smaller and often unprofitable companies. Its share price has recently been below $0.01 per share, and it executed a 1-for-5 reverse split recently, leaving shareholders with one share for every five that they used to own while boosting the share price five-fold. Its often companies in trouble that do reverse splits, partly to make their share prices look more respectable. Ignore Stock SplitsQI would think that Netflix, with its shares near $360 each, might split its stock soon. Would that be a good time to buy? G.C., Las Cruces, New MexicoAStock splits may seem exciting, but theyre not too meaningful. When a stock splits 3-for-1, if you originally owned 100 shares, youd end up with 300. Theyre not worth three times as much, though. Their price is reduced proportionately, so if they were trading at roughly $60 pre-split, theyll be around $20 apiece post-split. Their total value is $6,000 both before and after the split 100 shares times $60 or 300 shares times $20. Whether Netflix splits its shares shouldnt matter to you. The important thing when investing is to make sure that youre buying into a strong and growing company and that youre not paying too high a price. That valuation isnt measured by the stock price alone: A $9 stock can be overvalued and likely to fall, while a $1,000-pershare stock might be undervalued and on its way to $2,000 within a few years. Assess valuation measures such as price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios, price-to-sales ratios, and price-to-cash-flow ratios, and compare them with previous years and with those of competitors. A stock split means you end up with more shares, but not with more value.***QIs it a red flag when a mutual fund no longer allows new investors? P.T., Columbus, OhioAWhen funds grow very large, their managers can have trouble finding enough good investments for their shareholders money. If they resort to less-promising ones, results can suffer. So sometimes they restrict additional investments in order to keep growth in check.

Dont get too excited, for example, if a company reports record earnings. Perhaps Farm Dogs Inc. (ticker: BINGO) earned $2.75 per share in 2015, $2.76 in 2016, $2.78 in 2017, and $2.80 in 2018. That $2.80 might be a record high, but its also marking merely a 2 percent total increase over four years. Look for growth rates instead of record highs. Next, imagine that Chicken Little Industries (ticker: SKYYY) reports revenue up a whopping 100 percent over the past year. Thats more telling than record earnings and would intrigue most investors. Look into what the actual revenue numbers are, though. Chicken Little may have taken in only $250,000 in 2017. One hundred percent growth would put it at $500,000 in 2018. Thats good, but its still a meager sum. 2018 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

Irma insurance loses close to $10 billionFrom The News Service of FloridaInsurance loss estimates from Hurricane Irma have hit $9.7 billion, up by more than $1 billion since April, according to the latest numbers posted by the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation. Insurers also advised the state agency that the number of claims had reached 987,767 from the massive and deadly September storm. The was up more than 54,000 from when numbers were previously updated in April. Officials said they expected claims to be made for more than a year after the storm, as property owners are able to get complete assessments of the damages. Erin VanSickle, deputy chief of staff in the Office of Insurance Regulation, said to the agencys knowledge, no insurer has indicated difficulty in paying claims. The state agency doesnt release data by individual insurance companies, asserting protection of trade secrets. The numbers also dont include most agriculture losses, which the state has estimated at $2.5 billion, or damage inflicted by the storm on government facilities, including buildings, roads, parks and beaches. Insurance companies had closed 91.5 percent of residential claims but just 68.4 percent of commercial-property claims, according to the numbers, which were as of Tuesday. Of the 823,733 residential claims filed, 491,273 had been settled with some payment and 262,809 resulted in no money changing hands. Insurance officials have noted the amount of damages often fail to reach policyholders hurricane deductibles. On the commercial side, nearly 40 percent of the 58,544 claims failed to result in insurance payments, while nearly 30 percent had seen money paid. Across the state, the top counties for damage claims were Miami-Dade with 125,636, Collier with 88,934, Broward with 80,958 and Lee with 79,804. Nearly 20 percent of the claims in Miami-Dade County had yet to be closed, while 33 percent had been closed without any payments. Broward County had the next highest percentage of open claims, at nearly 15 percent. Collier was at 89.5 percent closed, Orange County was at 93 percent, and Duval County stood at nearly 95 percent. Irma made landfall twice in Florida on Sept. 10. It first hit Cudjoe Key, less than 30 miles northeast of Key West, and later hit Collier County before running up the peninsula. Overall, 16 counties each had more than 20,000 insurance claims. Orange County had seen 73,982 claims filed and Duval, which suffered major flooding from the St. Johns River, had 36,830 claims. The News Service of FloridaAs of Tuesday Insurance companies had closed 91.5 percent of residential claims but just 68.4 percent of commercial-property claims related to Hurricane Irma. C4
WEEK OF SUNDAY, JUNE 1723, 2018 BUSINESS LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER 5C Disney-Pixar/TNSA scene from the Incredibles 2. Incredibles 2 is Pixar at its bestBy Colin CovertStar Tribune (Minneapolis)Its a vexation to many parents that a family movie often is little more than a surrogate babysitter. While that can be of value who doesnt need 90 minutes of assistance in keeping the offspring entertained from time to time? it does prop up movies that provide the lightest, least forms of entertainment. How wonderful it is, then, to find a fascinating, surprisingly heartfelt and hugely entertaining movie that excites film buffs and rug rats alike. Were talking about an ambitious movie like Incredibles 2, which treats its cast of characters, and its target audience, not as generic types, but as intelligent individuals deserving attention. This is Pixar animation at its best, marshaling the technical mastery of the legendary studio with the creative dash of an independent-minded storyteller. Master illusionist Brad Bird, the director and screenwriter behind the first Incredibles as well as The Iron Giant, Ratatouille and the harder-edged live action spy extravaganza Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, revives his superhero classic in flawless form. Technically a sequel to the 2004 original, its actually more of a continuation of that rich, multithemed story, the first Pixar feature with a truly layered cast of characters and a PG rating for edgy action. As in the original hit, this is a story of remarkable character design and visually elegant 1960s-chic world-building. The focus is the Parr family, a Middle American clan far from the everyday average that their name implies. As masked secret heroes, the parents and their two kids possess superhuman powers that make defeating evil geniuses easier than coping with the commonplace flaws in their family relationships. The villain of the piece is a high-tech internet hypno tist called Screenslaver, out to mind-control the storys metropolis (be warned if youre sensitive to strobe flashes), but the real challenges bubble beneath the good guys private lives. The key characters are Bob Parr/Mr. Incredible (voiced by Craig T. Nelson), an incredibly strong hero with average intelligence, marital and parenting abilities. His better half Helen/ Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) is stretched to the snapping point by her dual responsibilities as heroine and mom. Their anxious teen daughter Violet (Sarah Vowell) is dealing with the difficulties of first love and social invisibility, while young son Dash (Huck Milner replacing Spencer Fox) is so excited by his hyper speed that hes rarely slow and steady. Infant Jack-Jack, sent into deep giggles by his own unpredictable powers, is the nuclear familys latest can of explosives. Each is a misunder stood outsider, hiding in a culture that sees supers as stigmatized freaks in a world where participation trophies should go to everyone. At the same time, theyre trying to fit into a combustible clan overrun with odd talents. The only character who seems to wear his latex suit comfortably is Bobs old buddy Frozone (delightfully voiced by Samuel L. Jackson), and even he seems to be skating away at top speed from his bossy, take-charge wife. There is a good level of espionage excitement in the film, which never wanders off the path in pursuit of cheap laughs. Bird constructs breakneck sequences involving big, bad motorcycle pursuits, out-of-control high-speed trains and a rocketing hydroplane headed toward Titanic-style destruction. The Incredibles find an ally in tycoon Winston Deavor (Bob Odenkirk), who is using his business savvy to make supers publicly accepted again. Odenkirk, who plays honorable and evil characters equally well, keeps us guessing as to whether the billionaire is actually a wolf in elegantly tailored sheeps clothing. We may have to wait years as the Disney squad gradually releases excellent solo features like Zootopia, or the Finding Nemo and Toy Story Pixar series, but they are worth every minute of the delay. Unlike the studios Star Wars division, producing mega-franchise fodder year after year, the animators aim to make excellent films with long lifelines. Its a form of cinematic haute cuisine, gourmet goods that encourage young consumers to develop a connoisseurs good taste. Film festivals pledge increased access for underrepresented criticsBy Jen YamatoLos Angeles TimesLOS ANGELES Brie Larson roused the entertainment industry Wednesday when she used her platform at Women in Films Crystal + Lucy Awards to drop sobering statistics from a recent USC study about the lack of diversity in film criticism. Its a field so disproportionately skewed that white men wrote 63.9 percent of reviews aggregated by Rotten Tomatoes for the top 100 films of 2017, while women of color penned just 4.1 percent. But the Oscar-winning actress and directors call to action also offered a glimmer of hope: Larson revealed that the Sundance Film Festival will grant 20 percent of top level press badges for 2019 to underrepresented journalists, while the Toronto International Film Festival will increase its own accredited underrepresented media by 20 percent. The pledges, from two of the most important and prestigious film festivals in the world, offered tangible examples of how long-needed industry change might finally come to fruition. We are planning to commit at least 20 percent of our top-tier press badges to underrepresented critics, Sundance assistant director of media relations Spencer Alcorn confirmed Thursday. Representatives of both Sundance and TIFF confirm that the umbrella of what constitutes underrepresented will include women, critics of color, disabled critics, as well as individuals who identify as LGBTQ. The festival level is often where independent movies have makeor-break premieres, where social media buzz originates, and early reviews set a tone for not only how a film is discussed, but whether it lands a distribution deal or not. Even studio-backed Hollywood fare, particularly challenging, art house-leaning and Oscar-thirsty pictures, routinely debut at festivals like Sundance and TIFF where festival-accredited critics can help establish the cultural conversations integral to a films success. It really sucks that reviews matter, but reviews matter, Larson said, speaking from experience; her indie drama Room was propelled to the Academy Awards by strong critical acclaim. Good reviews out of festivals give small independent films a fighting chance to be bought and seen. Good reviews help films gross money. Good reviews slingshot films into awards contenders. A good review can change your life. It changed mine. Zeroing in on the importance of diverse voices in film criticism, Larson added: I know that this means that my work will be shown, digested, discussed by a variety of people, not just a singular perspective. I want to know what my work means to the world, not a narrow view. The lens through which festival premieres are seen and analyzed is thus crucial to the life of a film, says TIFF vice president of public relations Andrea Grau. Industrywide conversations over fostering inclusivity behind the camera and on-screen should extend to who is covering those stories, she says. A conversation has been happening in terms of increasing the female filmmaker pipeline, said Grau. Its the same conversation, but on the film critic side: Who is watching the film? Is it a woman? Is it a person of color? What is their background? And what other dialogue are they bringing to the conversation that is absent if theyre not there? With an increasing emphasis on international representation, TIFF accredits 1,300 journalists, 30 percent of whom are from outside the U.S. and Canada. New application forms will include non-mandatory questions about how journalists self-identify, and the targeted 20 percent increase in underrepresented journalist accreditation matches realistic expectations of TIFFs growth capacity, explained Grau. TIFF also announced that funds from the Share Her Journey initiative launched last year will go toward granting female film critics resources to help attend the festival starting with this years edition in September. The festival was already fostering greater diversity among its films, filmmakers, press and audience in particular, Grau says, in order to better reflect the diverse cultural makeup of the city. There are 96 languages spoken in Toronto the last time I checked, so its an extremely multicultural city and its important that the films that come here be diverse not only in the filmmakers, but also the media that we have coming, said Grau. The decision to publicly announce the new commitments came together days prior to Larsons Women in Film acceptance speech, initiated by her team. But both festivals already had their own independent inclusion initiatives in the works. Sundance, held each January in Park City, Utah, currently accredits more than 1,000 journalists, assigning each media credential according to a three-tiered system of prioritized access. Critics largely fall into its express pass top tier, which is the badge level Sundance has promised to diversify starting this year. Its 20 percent pledge is one piece of a bigger plan that weve been working on since before the 2018 festival to overhaul the demographic makeup of the cultural critics at the festival, said Karim Ahmad, director of inclusion and outreach at the Sundance Institute. Ahmad joined the organization last year and heads a relatively new department devoted to fostering diversity across the institute, including Sundances artist programs and festival media corps. He informally estimates that gender representation among Sundance press is close to parity. Anecdotally, however, we are seeing race representation over whelmingly imbalanced in favor of folks who are white, he said. The question is not merely which writers get access, but where their reviews are then published. Underrepresented groups face uphill battles of inclusion and visibility in major media newsrooms in roles such as staff journalists, critics and assigned freelance writers which are also historically dominated by white men. That means Sundance and TIFF may give more consideration to freelance critics than in previous years. In the past we have accredited freelancers who are assigned, said Alcorn. It is our hope this year that we will be able to perhaps offer up, before assignment, a credential, and talk through where that work is going to be appearing. In the past while weve prioritized a lot of our accreditation based on size and reach, theres so much more to that conversation now because theres so much coverage out there thats being used to determine [what happens to] these artists, and where their careers go. A greater consideration of critics demographics and area of interest means more individualized vetting but also more opportunities in the near future for underrepresented critics not backed by major outlets to get a seat at the festival table, says Grau. We look at them one by one to really understand, which films does this journalist want to cover? What is their angle? What is the size of their outlet but also what is the audience that theyre reaching, that we also need to reach as an organization? she said. Its not just about numbers; its also about engagement. And that is a really important conversation that we need to have from an accreditation perspective. The festivals play a very important role in all of this, but were one part of a much larger ecosystem, she added. Editors need to be hiring underrepresented journalists. Marketing executives need to be hiring underrepresented individuals. Its part of a larger effort, and I think collectively if we all do our part we can actually move the dial. DreamstimeSundance and the Toronto International Film Festival are pledging to increase access for underrepresented critics. C5

The findings published in the journal Nature describe a clear link between global warming and the behavior of these severe storms with potentially devastating consequences for the people that live near them. According to overwhelming scientific consensus, the climbing average global temperature over the past century has been fueled largely by human activities that have released heat-trapping greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Among its negative effects, that rising heat has been linked to the melting of glaciers, the creeping rise of oceans, the bleaching of corals, the spread of human diseases and the worsening of drought. Scientists have also been trying to understand the link between global warming and the behavior of extreme weather events, such as the hurricanes that pound Atlantic coastlines during the summer and fall. Certainly theres one clear physical link, said Christina Patricola, an atmospheric scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory who was not involved in the study. For every 1 degree Celsius rise in temperature, the atmosphere is able to hold 7 percent more moisture. That means that when it finally does rain, theres a lot more water coming down which could raise the risk of flooding. The relationship of global warming to other aspects of such storms, such as frequency and intensity, has been more difficult to pin down, said study author James Kossin, a climate scientist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Madison, Wis. Thats partly because its hard to compare older data to the information thats been gathered in recent decades with more sophisticated instruments. And of course, in the pre-satellite era (before the 1960s), a lot of storms that lived and died over the open ocean would have gone unnoticed, which could potentially make them seem less frequent in the past than they really were. But one of the hallmarks of Hurricane Harvey, which ravaged the Texas coastline in 2017, was how it slowly it moved across the Houston region, dumping roughly 50 inches of rain in some areas. A lot of the initial research has been focused largely on numbers of tropical cyclones and then of course on intensity because thats the way that we feel the impacts, Patricola said. But when events like Hurricane Harvey hit, she added, its a reminder that we need to consider the other characteristics of tropical cyclones. Kossin wanted to see if, on average, the traveling speed of such tropical cyclones was slowing down. To find out, he used data from the U.S. National Hurricane Center and the Joint Typhoon Warning Center to study the position of such storms centers every six hours. From those, he was able to calculate the moving speed of these coastal storms between 1949 and 2016. Kossin found that, on average globally, the speed at which these tropical cyclones moved had fallen by about 10 percent with just 0.5 degrees Celsius of warming. In certain regions, that slowdown was even more extreme: about 30 percent over land affected by tropical cyclones from the western North Pacific and 20 percent over land affected by tropical cyclones from the North Atlantic. I was surprised at how strong a signal it was and how large a signal it was, Kossin said. Ten percent over 70 years is really quite a lot. Still, the finding fits with what is known about global warming and the dynamics of the atmosphere, he said. Tropical cyclones are largely carried along by atmospheric circulation and that has been slowing down, as the temperature gradient between the poles and the tropics begins to shrink (because the poles are warming faster than the tropics are). A storm that lingers longer over inhabited coastlines is a more dangerous storm, Kossin said, because it allows more rain to fall in a local area, raising the risk of flooding and storm surge. It may even increase the damage from hurricane winds, simply by battering the same structures over a longer period. These tropical cyclones arrive carrying many, many hazards with them none of them good and the longer its in your area, the worse its going to be, Kossin said. You dont want them to move slowly. Kossin was quick to point out that his results only show what had happened over the 68-year period, not what may happen in the future.NOAA/NCEIThese percentages show how much tropical cyclones have slowed around the world over 68 years. Local tropical cyclone rainfall totals would be expected to increase by the same percentage due to the slowing alone. C6
LIFE Lake City Reporterwww.lakecityreporter.comSunday, June 17, 2018Section D Story ideas? Contact Editor Robert Bridges754firstname.lastname@example.org Everything is peachy keen this summerOne of my favorite fruits is the peach. Its origin was in China and dates back to 6000 B.C. It was brought to the Americas in the 16th century by Spanish explorers. Interesting to note, Thomas Jefferson was one of the first farmers in the U.S. to plant peaches at Monticello in Virginia. In the 1700s, Missionaries took peach trees to California where they produce more peaches now than any other US state. Georgia is known as the Peach State but ranks third in peach production with California first and South Carolina second. Off Season peaches are usually imported from Chile and Mexico. Peaches are classified into the Freestone whose flesh separates from the pit and Clingstones whose flesh clings to the pit. From late April June we have the Semi-freestones, and in Mid-June the Freestones start coming in. Clingstones are the variety typically used for canning. Growing up in Georgia, I remember associating peaches with summer. We couldnt wait for the pick-up trucks to be on the side of the road filled with peaches. My Mother would buy a bushel and we knew there would be work involved but the end results would be with us all year long. She would make peach cobblers, of course. She also made peach preserves and those famous pickled peaches. No holiday, back then, was complete unless there was a bowl of pickled peaches on it. She even had a special bowl that we used for them. I loved them and Im sad to say that its rare to find them nowadays and rarer seeing them on the dinner table. Its like those vivid red crab apples we used to eat. Never see them anymore either. My Mother also made a boiled custard for her peach ice cream and my Daddy would turn the churn. When the dasher was removed the chopped peaches would then be added. There was usually a pound cake to go with it which later became the base to build a peach shortcake dessert. Trust me, that bushel of peaches did not go to waste and they brought the taste of summer all year long. I thought I would share a couple of my peach recipes. My most popular and most often made is the Peach Cobbler. I dont know the origin of this particular one but I consider it the best and the easiest. By layering it with the butter at the bottom and the peaches on the top, a crust is formed while it bakes and the buttery taste permeates the entire thing. PEACH COBBLER Place one stick of butter in baking dish ( 9 x 9 or 9 x 13 for thinner pie), place in oven and let it melt. Combine the following: 1 cup sugar cup flour 2 tsp. baking powder cup milk Pinch of salt Remove pan with melted butter from the oven and pour the sugar/ flour mixture into the melted butter. DO NOT STIR Add 2-3 cups of sliced peaches on top of mixture and DO NOT STIR. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately one hour. Check after 50 minutes so it doesnt get too brown. When blueberries are available, I sometimes throw a handful in with the peaches. The combination is wonderful. You can make with other fruits. If I make apple cobbler, I add a sprinkling of cinnamon. If I make a blue berry cobbler, I squeeze a lemon onto the berries before I add to pie. Heres a salad that is summer refreshing and I like the crunch. Youll want to use Vidalia onions as they have a milder and sweet taste as opposed to regular onions which would overpower the chicken flavor. PEACHY CHICKEN SALAD CUP VIDALIA ONION, FINELY CHOPPED CUP VEGETABLE OIL CUP HONEY 1 TSP RED WINE VINEGAR 1 CUP COOKED and chopped CHICKEN 2 CUPS PEACHES, CHOPPED CUP CHOPPED PECANS OR WALNUTS 2 TBS FRESH PARSLEY SALT AND PEPPER TO TASTE Combine diced onion, oil, honey and vinegar. Bring to a boil, set aside until cool. Combine other ingredients in a large bowl. Pour cooled dressing over chicken mixture, toss, cover and chill 1-2 hours. Serve on lettuce leaf. Makes four servings. Another popular way to serve fresh peaches is to grill them. These are especially good served with chicken or pork dishes. Heres an easy grilled peach side dish or dessert: Honey Nut Grilled Peaches Heat grill to medium-high. Remove pits from 3-4 peaches. Lightly brush with the canola or olive oil. Place open side down on the grill. Grill for 5 to 6 minutes, or until the surfaces have nice grill marks. Turn the peaches over and grill other side. Remove from grill and drizzle with a bit of honey. Place a dollop of Philadelphia Honey Nut cream cheese spread in the middle of each. Return to Grill for 2 to 3 minutes longer, or until the filling is warm. Plate and garnish with pecan halves or mint sprigs. (optional) Serve immediately. I previously mentioned Peach Shortcake. Easy as can be. Slice your peaches and sprinkle a bit of sugar on them using just enough to make them sweet to your liking. Stir well and set aside. Make the following shortcake recipe if dont have a pound cake sitting around. I make it and put in the oven when we sit down to eat so that its ready when we finish. SHORTCAKE 2 cups flour cup butter cup milk 2 tsp. baking powder cup sugar Pr eheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix all ingredients and mold into a round or square shape on a cookie sheet. Prick several times with a fork and bake for 18 minutes. Cut into slices or wedges and serve warm with peaches and whipped cream or cool whip on top. The internet has tons of peach recipes. I love the tried and true ones I have but there are a number of other ones that caught my eye like Peach Salsa, Peach Sangria, Peach Upside cake and Peaches and Avocado salad. Lets enjoy a Peachy Summer. COURTESY PHOTOSFrom peach cobbler to peachy chicken salad to shortcake, peaches have long been a summertime culinary staple.

Spending time with someone you love will bring about changes to the way you live. Dont take on a physical challenge if there is a risk of injury or argument. Romance is encouraged. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Troubles brewing, making it important to choose your words and actions carefully. Dont assume everyone will be happy with the choices you make. Get the go-ahead before you make changes that will affect others or cause a rift. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A day trip looks inviting, but be careful if you have to deal with authority figures. Have the proper documentation in place to avoid setbacks. Romance will brighten your day, but dont overspend trying to impress someone you love. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Size up a situation and get started turning it into your personal project. If you want things to go according to plan, youll have to do the work yourself. An opportunity to experience different cultures will impact your life. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Put your best foot forward and your credit cards in a safe place. Making personal changes can be good as long as you dont spend what you dont have. Make love and romance your priorities, not a shopping spree. Romance is favored. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A routine, schedule and plan put into place will make it easier for you to achieve your goals.

I didnt regard him as a father figure, but more as a relative, friend, and a good man who has done a lot of good for my family. Im a young adult now. My real dad died recently. Fathers Day is now just a painful emptiness I would rather ignore, instead of partaking in celebrations that remind me the most important man in my life is gone. My mom insists that I continue to acknowledge my stepdad on Fathers Day. I know its the polite and courteous thing to do, and my stepdad deserves every accolade in the world, but its awkward for me. I hurt for the loss of Dad and dont want to be reminded on a holiday where everyone else at the party is surrounded by theirs. Is there a best path answer here? -DAUGHTER MISSING DAD IN KANSAS DEAR DAUGHTER: Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your father. Its understandable that your heart is heavy. Mothers Day and Fathers Day can evoke sadness for those who have lost a parent. That said, I do think the respectful thing to do would be to remember your stepdad with a card as your mother wishes. Sometimes, knowing we have done something nice for someone else -even if we are hurting -can make us feel better. If you do, you wont be sorry. I know, because it has worked for me. P.S. Readers, allow me to wish a Happy Fathers Day to fathers everywhere -birth fathers, stepfathers, adoptive and foster fathers, grandfathers, and all of those caring men who mentor children and fill the role of absent dads. And, of course, a big shout-out to dual-role moms and grandmothers. I applaud you all. -LOVE, ABBY DEAR ABBY: I am in high school and Im an atheist. My parents are Catholic. Over the past couple of years, for various reasons, I have realized I dont believe what my parents and priest were telling me. I havent told my parents because Im afraid of what theyll say. Mom will probably think she failed as a parent, my grandma would never talk to me again and Ill be forced to go to church every Sunday, do the sacraments and go to religion class. Ive been silent for a while, but Im going to make my confirmation soon and I feel terrible. When I go to confirmation classes, I feel like a hypocrite. I want to tell everyone the truth, but I dont know if its a good idea. Should I? -NEW ENGLAND HERETIC DEAR HERETIC: Although this may seem counterintuitive, consider talking to your priest about your feelings. I am positive that it wont be the first time he has heard something like this. Keep in mind that as you grow older, your feelings about atheism may moderate. People have been known to return to -and find comfort from -the church after a long absence.

4D S UNDAY, JUNE 17, 2018 LIFE LAKE CITY REPORTER As Fathers Day nears, a vintage bottle sheds some new lightBy Adam TschornLos Angeles TimesOld Spice, the de facto scent profile of American dadness, turns 80 this year, which makes it, well, old. This doesnt come as too much of a surprise since the mens grooming brand, with its memorable nautical-themed advertising campaigns, buoyshaped fragrance bottles and assorted soaps-on-a-rope (shapes over the years included a compass rose and a scrimshaw-decorated whale tooth), always seemed to register at least a generation older than its target demographic. And for the first four decades (well get to the second four decades in a bit), it was pretty smooth sailing for the ship-emblazoned bottles of aftershave, cologne and shaving soap. To key into the colonial/nautical brand aesthetic, the earliest packaging featured a sailing vessel called the Grand Turk, with other ships joining the fleet starting in the 1940s. Shulton, the company that launched the brand as a womens fragrance in 1937 before tweaking it and renaming it Old Spice for Men the following year, would eventually be absorbed by American Cyanamid in 1970, which, in turn, would say anchors aweigh in 1990, the year it sold the brand to consumer-goods behemoth Procter & Gamble. This chain of ownership and which colonial-era sailing ship appears on what bottle wont matter much to the casual consumer of Old Spice products. But, for eBay bargain hunters, hardcore collectors and the occasional inheritor of a vintage, buoyshaped, bone-white cologne bottle, theyre crucial clues. Its in this last category that I find myself, having taken possession of my fathers Old Spice cologne bottle after he passed away in 2014. My mother and I decided I should be custodian of this tangible olfactory memory partly because I had become a second-generation Old Spice customer on his account (stick deodorants, mostly), and partly because, as we were cleaning out the bathroom medicine cabinet of his belongings, she gave the bottle a good shake and found it to be at least half full. (On a side note, who really needs to stockpile that much dental floss?) The bottle has occupied a place of honor in my own medicine cabinet ever since I brought it home some 3 years ago. It sits next to an Old Spice shaving mug of the same milky white glass, a vintage double-edge Gillette safety razor and a badger-hair shaving brush. The other three items had also been my Dads but were gifts I had given him over the years; their back stories were anything but mysterious. I just sort of saw the cologne bottle there every morning out of the corner of my eye, a daily reminder of him, what my mom calls a tug at the heart strings, not unlike the wallet-sized photo of him my brother tucked into the sun visor of his pickup truck. In full disclosure, I hadnt spent a whole lot of time thinking much about the bottle. That is until Old Spice released an 80th-anniversary limited-edition capsule collection a few weeks back. For most of the last four decades (I told you wed get here, didnt I?), the brand has all but put the crusty colonial mariner vibe in dry dock as it tried to reclaim market dominance in the era of brands such as Axe body spray. The ships of yore have morphed into sleek yachts. Products like body wash bear names such as Wolfthorn (described as the sort of sophisticated wolf who wears a suit that has a suave, sweet orange scent), and the sea captain in TV spots has ceded command to the likes of smooth-talking, towel-clad Isaiah Mustafa, who helped the brands 2010 Smell like a man, man campaign go viral. Thats why the retro look of the capsule, available only during 2018 and selling exclusively through Walmart, was so surprising. An homage to the brands early packaging, the packaging for the trio of products has ivory white as the predominant color and a stylized version of the Grand Turk sails front and center. And the original, distinctively shaped bottle even gets a cameo as a buoy. It bobs in the sea surrounded by sharks (on the deodorant), is held aloft in the tentacles of a kraken (on the antiperspirant) and splashes down with a pair of parachutes (on the body wash). Clearly I wasnt the only one for whom the buoy bottle resonated. This prompted me to take a longer look at the memento in my medicine cabinet. Moving the cologne bottle to my desk, I fired up my computer and headed down the rabbit hole where I ended up learning a whole lot about vintage Old Spice bottles and my father. According to a Procter & Gamble archivist who pored over old catalogs and Old Spice advertisements on my behalf, the bottle before me could have been made as early as 1951 (when Old Spice became available in Toronto, which appears on the bottle back next to Clifton, N.J.) but not after 1970, the year Shulton sold Old Spice to American Cyanamid. Information gleaned from the exhaustively thorough website Old Spice Collectibles, which isnt affiliated with the brand or P&G, helped me narrow that window to somewhere between 1956 and 1967 based on the bottle design and stopper style. At 51 to 62 years old, this wasnt so much a bottle as a time capsule of my Dads entire grooming life. To put this in perspective, at its oldest, this bottle of cologne would have come into Douglas Allan Tschorns life when he was just 21 years old. At its youngest, he would have come into its possession barely two years after I was born and the same year my baby sister the youngest of his four children came into this world. He may well have used some of its citrus/vanilla/carnation-scented contents the day he graduated from college in 1958 or when he married my mom in 1962. And, now that I know the timeline, I cant help but imagine hope, really that he splashed a few drops onto his smiling face that day in 1965 when my parents brought my mewling, wide-eyed, 5-pound, newborn self home from the maternity ward of Rhode Islands Woonsocket Hospital. This Fathers Day will be the fourth since my shopkeeper dad shuffled off to the great country store in the sky. Somehow, though, as the third Sunday in June rolls around this year, I find the memories of my father have somehow grown even stronger, buoyed by a vintage and still half-full bottle of Old Spice cologne.Myung J. Chun/Los Angeles Times/TNSPaul Newman memorabilia at Adam Carollas garage. The avid car enthusiast has a collection of 10 of Paul Newmans racing cars. How Adam Carolla became the Paul Newman car guyBy CHARLES FLEMINGLos Angeles TimesGLENDALE, Calif. Adam Carolla is a comedian, carpenter, podcaster, filmmaker, best-selling author, race car driver and entrepreneur. He also owns more cars raced by the late actor-driver Paul Newman than anyone else. That part was an accident. Carolla never set out to be the Paul Newman collector car guy. I was interested in Datsun race cars, initially, Carolla said during a walk around his Glendale car collection recently. The Paul Newman part was secondary. At that time, Carolla explained, no one was bidding against him to acquire the vehicles owned or raced by Newman, star of such films as The Hustler, Cool Hand Luke and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. They were race cars, for one thing and those hadnt taken off in value yet. They were Japanese cars, too, not Italian or German, and they were from the 1980s and those werent being collected a decade ago as they are now. And though they were driven by a movie star, the movie star wasnt Steve McQueen, whose vehicles all have much added value. The fact that they were raced by Paul Newman was neither here nor there, Carolla said. Still, Carolla thought that cars raced by Newman, then in his early 80s, might increase in value after the actor died, making them a sensible investment. So he invested more. Having bought his first, for a then-cheap $100,000, Carolla found he was the first buyer approached when another Newman car came up for sale. So he bought that one, too. After Newman died in 2008 at 83, Carolla was approached by the movie stars former racing partner and offered a whole collection of Newman collectibles: cars, helmets, race suits and more. Carolla didnt really want all that, but, as he said, Who else is going to buy this stuff? If I didnt buy it all from him, I might end up having to buy each piece individ ually from other people. Besides, I kept an eye on the Steve McQueen stuff, which was going through the roof. Soon Carolla had a stable and had spent $1 million or more buying Newman cars and at least that much again restoring them. Then he heard that Newmans 1979 Porsche 935, which the actor and his team had driven to win their class and to place second overall at the 1979 24 Hours of Le Mans, was going to be auctioned by Gooding & Co. during the 2016 car week at Pebble Beach. Carolla knew the car was going to cost a lot. But he also knew that, as the Newman collector car guy, hed have to pay a lot more for it later if he didnt strike now. I knew this would be my one shot at getting this car, Carolla said, running his hand over the top of the bright red Porsche. I knew the next time it came up for auction, it would be $10 million. I was never going to have $10 million. In fact, I didnt really have $4 million. But I knew this was my chance. I figured I could always pay for it by selling a bunch of other cars. Carolla won the auction with a $4-million bid, bringing the acquisition price, with fees, to about $4.4 million. Carolla, who calls that purchase the biggest hell ever make, not counting whenever I get divorced, brought the car home and began selling off some of his collection of vintage Lamborghinis to fund the deal. Unlike some collectors, Carolla, who is also the force behind the 2015 documentary film Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman, doesnt keep the cars in pristine condition and store them in a museum. He restores them to competition level, and then races them. This year, hell take Newman cars to the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England in July, the vintage races at Laguna Seca during the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion in August and to the same track for the Rennsport Reunion in September. Carolla, to his regret, never got to see Newman drive any of the cars he has since acquired, though the actor was still active on the track into his early 80s. Im from North Hollywood. My dad didnt like racing. No one I knew was into that stuff, Carolla said. The bottle has occupied a place of honor in my own medicine cabinet ever since I brought it home some 3 years ago.
