Investigators found insufficient evidence in the case of Fort White High School teacher Jenny Corrine Lang, who was accused of having a sexual encounter with the minor in or near a hot tub in Dixie County. After reviewing the reports and evidence in this case, the State Attorneys Office feels that it likely could not prove this case beyond a reasonable doubt at trial, the letter states. Lang is a middle-school level exceptional student education teacher at the combined middle and high school.

TO NY BRITT /Lake City ReporterA Lake City Fire Department firefighter sprays water on the engine compartment of a Chevy S-10 pickup Tuesday afternoon near the intersection of Southwest Alexandria Boulevard and Grandview Avenue. According to fire department officials at the scene, the fire was caused by mechanical issues. No one was injured in the blaze which occurred just after 2 p.m. and resulted in the streets closure for about 20 minutes. First responders at the scene included two units from LCFD responded as well as a member of the departments command staff, a unit from the Lake City Police Department and a unit from the Columbia County Sheriffs Office.the state and the nation. We have dealers signed on to this network all over the country, said Jim Carr, director of RV Distance Learning Network. Weve got 246 dealers and 2,000 students that view these programs and its designed for technicians to become more proficient in their occupation. After nearly a two decade partnership beginning in 2000 with FGC, the col lege now serves as host to the Florida RV Trade Associations Distance Learning Network. FGCs Executive Director of Media and Public Information, Mike McKee, said it was a development that began this year. The college has recently started revamping its online curriculum and educational videos to modernize the program. On Tuesday, RV trade association leaders and industry insiders were at Florida Gateway College filming their educational and instructional videos in FGCs production studios. The new videos will be shot with digital cameras and stored on the campuses servers for website access by dealerships offering the training to their employees. What its designed to do, is to train new employees in dealerships and they access the distance learning network through the college who host the programming on our archive system, said Carr. Carr said Camping World of Lake City and JD Sanders of Alachua, plus others in Jacksonville, Tampa, Orlando and elsewhere in the state participate. He said it was designed strictly for employees in RV dealerships throughout the state. We call it a public private partnership between the RV industry and the college and they provide us services that we pay for and so its a win-win for us and its a win-win for the college, Carr said. They access the materials through login information via an FGC website, while at the dealership employees meet once or twice a week to view videos with training service manager, Carr said. Most dealers do not do anything but the chassis on RVs, he said. Its all the housing components. You have to know plumbing, electricity, propane, air conditioning, all the appliances. Everything you have in your house you have in an RV and they have to know it. RVsContinued From 1AE ngine fire snuffed out fast documents from the Dixie County Sheriffs Office. The male students mother made the complaint against Lang after overhearing the student speak about the incident to a family member. He wasnt the traditional victim, where he ran to a counselor or a cop and said, Ive been victimized, Siegmeister said in February. Lang was suspended by the Columbia County School Board Sept. 26, retroactive to Sept. 6, after officials learned of the allegations. The suspension was amended on Oct. 10 to include pay. The Dixie County Sheriffs Office handled the initial investigation. Digital forensic evidence shows Lang was visiting friends and families more than 100 miles away when the misconduct allegedly occurred, according to a written statement from Langs attorney, Fred Koberlein. Siegmeister has confirmed that the incident couldnt have happened during the time witnesses told investigators it took place. Its possible the activity occurred at a different time, Siegmeister previously said. But investigators still havent found any evidence to corroborate witness accounts. Langs employment status remains unclear. TEACHERContinued From 1AWind-aided accident blocks I-75 north for about an hourFrom staff reportsTwo motorists from Indiana were driving north through Columbia County when unexpected wind conditions resulted in an accident early Tuesday afternoon. Russel Malott, 57, and Deborah Malott, 56, both of Quincey, Ind. were driving in the outside lane on I-75, north of the interchange with SR 47, when they were passed by a semi tractor trailer. This resulted in a shift in the wind, causing Russel Malott to lose control of the vehicle, a 2015 GMC Yukon with a 37 travel trailer, which jackknifed and overturned onto its right side, according to a Florida Highway Patrol press release. Although neither occupant was injured, traffic was blocked in the northbound lane for approximately an hour before the trailer was removed. Both occupants were wearing seat belts at the time of the accident.

Sitel call center shuts its doorsBy CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comHundreds are without jobs after one of the largest employers in the county shut down its local operation, but the exact number of affected workers is unclear. Telecommunications firm Sitel, which provides outsourced customer support, IT and other services, closed its Lake City office Friday, according to the companys media relations team. Due to recent business changes, Sitel Group has made the difficult decision to stop operations at the Lake City contact center on June 15, ending employment for agents at the Lake City location, the company wrote in an email. While operations at this location have currently ceased, the site could re-open to new business in the future. At this time, we encourage all agents to apply for other positions in the company, and should any new employment opportunities arise at the Lake City location in the near future, we will make every effort to alert previous employees of available positions. This has been a very difficult decision due to the tremendous support we have received and the relationships we have built within the Lake City community. Sitel Group remains committed to growing the location and providing employment to local residents. Current and past Sitel clients include companies such as Dish Network. Sitel did not respond to a request for figures on how many people the local office employed at the time of closing. The latest information provided to the Lake CityColumbia County Chamber of Commerce indicated there were 556 employees. Im not sure if ever in my tenure Ive seen a layoff of that many people, said the chambers exec utive director, Dennille Decker. At once, at least. Employees at a firm such as Sitel can ebb and flow depending on the season and number of active contracts, so theres no way to know how accurate that figure was at the time of the shut down, Decker said. Multiple individuals with knowledge of the operation have estimated there were upwards of 800 full-time, part-time and contract workers as of this month. The shutdowns impact to the community is sure to be significant, Decker said. Any time that many people lose their jobs, its going to negatively affect our local economy, she said. To put Sitel in perspective, Decker said the school system is the countys largest employer, with 1,400 employees, followed by the Lake City VA Medical Center, with 1,200 employees. Aircraft maintenance firm HAECO comes in at third place, with 630 employees. Sitels Lake City office employed people from as far as Jacksonville, Decker said. And we would encourage all of the laid-off employees to reach out to our local CareerSource for help and placement, she said. Columbia County Economic Development Director Glenn Hunter had limited communications with Sitel about the shutdown, he wrote in an email to the Lake City Reporter. It was my understanding that a company serviced by Sitel was acquired by a larger communications company and their location was changed, Hunter wrote. Telecom firm was major local employer.Any time that many people lose their jobs, its going to negatively affect our local economy.-Dennille Decker, Lake City/ Columbia County Chamber of CommerceCARL MCKINNEY/Lake City ReporterHundreds of people are out of work following the closure of this Sitel contact center in Lake City on Friday. Government critic gets second win at the Supreme CourtThe News Service of FloridaA government critic who has long battled the city of Riviera Beach won his second U.S. Supreme Court case Monday, prevailing in a dispute stemming from a 2006 arrest at a city council meeting. Justices, in an 8-1 decision, sided with Fane Lozman, who filed a lawsuit against the city contending that the arrest involved retaliation for his outspoken criticism of officials in the Palm Beach County community. The Supreme Court overturned a ruling by the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in favor of the city and sent the issue back for further consideration. The Supreme Court said the issue in the case was narrow and also made clear that it did not determine whether Lozman is ultimately entitled to relief or even a new trial. But in overturning the appeals court, it ruled on a key issue about whether Lozmans First Amendment rights could be violated even when there was cause for his arrest. Lozman said in an interview with The News Service of Florida that the case has moved the bar forward that no longer can a government entity retaliate against an individual and try to hide behind some bogus petty arrest. Those days are over. We won the case. We got what we wanted. Im just glad that 10 years hard work was not for naught, Lozman said. Lozman has frequently clashed through the years with the Riviera Beach city government, including over plans by the city to use eminent domain as part of redevelopment efforts. Lozmans criticism included filing a lawsuit alleging Sunshine Law violations about the approval of an agreement with developers. The arrest happened in November 2006, as Lozman addressed the city council during a public-comment period. During his comments, Lozman spoke about the arrest of a former Palm Beach County commissioner on corruption charges, according to court documents. A city council member interjected, but Lozman refused to stop speaking, subsequently leading to his arrest on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest without violence. The State Attorneys Office said probable cause existed for Lozmans arrest but decided against prosecuting the case. In 2008, Lozman filed the civil lawsuit alleging retaliation in the arrest. As the arrest case moved forward, another case involving a dispute between Lozman and the city went to the U.S. Supreme Court. That case was related to a dispute about Lozmans house boat, which was docked at a city-owned marina. The city sought to have Lozman evicted and brought a lawsuit under federal admiralty law. But the Supreme Court in 2013 overturned an appealscourt ruling in favor of the city. Mondays ruling, written by Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, focused on what it described as the intersection of principles that define when arrests are lawful and principles that prohibit the government from retaliating against a person for having exercised the right to free speech. The ruling said Lozman acknowledged that a police officer had probable cause to make the arrest under a state law that bars disturbances at such public meetings. But Lozman also argued that the arrest stemmed from retaliation. Lozmans claim is that, notwithstanding the presence of probable cause, his arrest at the city council meeting violated the First Amendment because the arrest was ordered in retaliation for his earlier, protected speech: his open-meetings lawsuit and his prior public criticisms of city officials, Kennedy wrote. The question this (Supreme) Court is asked to consider is whether the existence of probable cause bars that First Amendment retaliation claim. The ruling, with Justice Clarence Thomas dissenting, said the fact that probable cause existed for the arrest does not bar Lozmans First Amendment retaliation claim under the circumstances of this case. In sending the case back, the Supreme Court said the appeals court could consider issues such as whether a reasonable juror could find that the city formed a retaliatory policy to intimidate Lozman and whether such a juror could find that the arrest constituted an official act of the city. It said the appeals court also could consider whether the city has proved it would have arrested Lozman regard less of any retaliatory animus. But in his dissent, Thomas focused on the probable cause for arrest. He wrote that plaintiffs bringing a First Amendment retaliatory-arrest claim under (the civil rights law in the Lozman case) should have to plead and prove a lack of probable cause. I see no justification for deviating from the historical practice simply because an arrest claim is framed in terms of the First Amendment.

The headline appeared in my newsfeed on Friday and went viral over the weekend: Lake City woman shoots husband in groin when he tries to take air conditioner, plus countless variants. The Jacksonville TV folks were first, naturally. Those guys never let the facts get in the way of a good story if it means more Web hits. From there it got picked up by the Miami Herald and the Atlanta Journal Constitution before heading to television outlets in New York, Boston, Chicago and points west. The International Business Times, an offshoot of Newsweek, got hold of it from there, followed by the tabloids. The New York Post, along with the UKs Daily Mail, Sun and Mirror, the latter of which calls itself the intelligent tabloid, all found the story of considerable interest. Which it was. Eight months ago when it actually happened. As reported on the front page of the Oct. 31, 2017 edition of the Lake City Reporter, Kimberly Dawn Bingham, 35, was jailed after shooting her estranged husband in the groin for the aforementioned reason. Soon to be divorced, she was trying to sell the AC for the house they jointly owned. The husband, having none of it, came to take possession of the unit. (Note: If you saw the new version of this story online, you noticed her name is different shes now known as Kimberly Bingham Dunn, meaning her divorce presumably went through.) Heres the relevant part of our story from last October: Bingham told deputies that when the man pulled up with a relative of his in a pickup truck, she sat on top of the A/C unit with a stun gun and a Glock handgun. She said the victim then tried to move her, causing her to attempt to shock him with the stun gun in self-defense, according to the report. She told CCSO that he then struck her in the side of the head, leading her to discharge the firearm in an attempt to scare him. She said she did not mean to shoot him. However, she fired one round, which went right into the mans groin area, CCSO said. So why all the hubbub over an admittedly lurid story that happened last fall? She missed a court date in the legal proceedings against her and had her bail revoked. Thats all. Nothing new of any substance to add. Just a chance to recycle a nearly year-old story, in some cases not mentioning till the very end that its not exactly breaking news. To New Yorkers and Brits that likely didnt make much difference. They missed the story the first time around, got it the second and had a good laugh. For them it was further affirmation that most Floridians are loons to begin with, a bigotry many of them already take on faith. But closer to home, this kind of claptrap carries more weight. It falls into the category of manufactured news, which is pretty close kin to the fake variety. Especially when its done on purpose, which must have been the case with the Jax TV folks who launched this whole recycling effort after reporting on the original story along with us last fall. Human error is one thing, and Lord knows we arent perfect. But news is news, and you know the difference between something that matters and something just ginned up for effect. We will never lie to you, by act, omission or innuendo. Nor will we insult your intelligence. Dont count on anybody else in this market to make that claim and mean it.

This mission will be accomplished through the teamwork of professionals dedicated to truth, integrity and hard work. Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINIONAn extra helping of taxpayer cashWhen we saw County Commissioner Everett Phillips agenda item for Thursday seeking $385,000 for unbudgeted road work, to be paid out of emergency funds, we thought wed entered a time warp and jumped back 50 years or more. Back when good old boy politics was the order of the day, and all a commissioner had to do to get money for some pet project during an election year was ask. Mr. Phillips may not know it, but those days are gone. That he would even make such a request is an insult to everyone who has worked so hard over the last few years to reform an unruly and undisciplined county commission that used to think nothing of such shenanigans. It is also an insult to his own constituents. October Road is no different now than it was before Phillips took office. And it is certainly no different than it was last year when the budgeting process took place. If there is a safety issue now, there was a safety issue then. So why didnt he bring it up? The stats dont bear out Mr. Phillips sudden concern in any case. Roughly one accident per year has been reported on October Road for the last decade, county records show. Progress has been made toward reforming the County Commission, but this episode shows how easily it can be lost. Now it is up to Mr. Phillips colleagues to set things right. If the other four members of the County Commission do not call him out for this blatant cash grab, and shut this proposal down hard, we will know the progress to which we have been alluding was an illusion. The search will then continue for men and women who arent afraid to do whats right, even if it means standing up to an otherwise kindly fellow who somehow seems to think hes entitled to an extra helping of taxpayer cash during his re-election campaign.Clickbait getting old. Literally. No match for a frightened childA crying child on the border, hugging his mothers legs and begging not to be separated from her, breaks everybodys heart (except those with a heart of stone). Such a child, in a newspaper photograph, or 30-second video on television or online, sweeps explanations, discussion and all else away. The image of a crying child is one that cynical Democrats cant wait to exploit when the public begins to pay attention to the midterm congressional election campaign, and that will be very soon. Were told by her official spokesman that Melania Trump hates to see children separated from their families, and hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform. She believes the United States need to achieve successful immigration reform, and the nation should be a nation that follows all laws, but also a country that governs with a heart. Fits of hysteria abound. But something must be done about the children of immigrants who broke the law to make it across the border, whether for political refuge or economic aspiration. If Donald Trump wants to do something that he can portray as a generous and humanitarian act before the pressure of public opinion forces him to do something anyway, he must put his lawyers to work on a solution now. Taking a child away from its parents is deeply traumatic, and the effects might last a lifetime. Even when the parent is solely at fault, which in the event is nearly always the case, its not fair to the child to make him the victim of bad policy. A child neither knows nor cares about policy, however beloved it may be by bureaucrats. Alone, confused, puzzled and terrified, a child just wants the safety of his mothers arms or the reassurance of his fathers embrace. Right now, says Alan Dershowitz, the Harvard lawyer who has been one of the fiercest defenders of Donald Trumps civil rights (hes entitled, too), this administration is allowing young children to be taken away from their arrested parents. The more important point is that President Trump, with one phone call or one signature can stop the separation of children and parents right now today. The claim by certain of the presidents supporters, ever eager to defend him against critics of bad faith, argue that he does not have this power. But he does. The president is the chief executive officer of the United States with the constitutional authority to see that laws are properly executed, says Mr. Dershowitz. Neither Democrats nor Republicans are innocent of using the children as chits in an argument where human lives hang in the balance. Mr. Trump is eager to get the money from Congress to finish his border wall, which will one day, one way or the other, stand across the border to defend the nations sovereignty and safety. Democrats are determined to keep the border open, to take in malleable immigrants with whom they can transform the nation to the specifications of a soft welfare state. Members of Congress will never fix anything if they think the fixing will endanger their re-election. They could fix the immigration mess in two or three days if they really wanted to do it. But its useful for both sides to keep things the way they are. President Trump should do the right thing, or if the right thing isnt consideration enough, he can do the politic thing. No politician is a match in the public eye for a hurt and frightened child.Washington TimesThe New York Post, along with the UKs Daily Mail, Sun and Mirror, all found the story of considerable interest.

6A WEDNESD AY, JUNE 20, 2018 HEALTH LAKE CITY REPORTER By EVAN BARTONUF HealthGAINESVILLE, Fla. A virus first found in Tampa Bay-area mosquitoes that can cause a rash and mild fever has been identified in humans for the first time, according to University of Florida researchers. The findings are yet another indicator of the range of diseases that can be caused by mosquito bites in Florida, in keeping with a recent study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that highlighted the almost doubling of vector-borne disease cases in the United States since the early 2000s. Although the virus has never previously been found in humans, the infection may actually be fairly common in North Florida, said J. Glenn Morris, M.D., M.P.H., director of the UF Emerging Pathogens Institute and corresponding author of the report on the virus published June 9 in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases. Its one of these instances where if you dont know to look for something, you dont find it, he added. The virus, called Keystone virus after the location in the Tampa Bay area where it was initially identified in 1964, has been found in animal populations along coastal regions stretching from Texas to the Chesapeake Bay. While there were no reports of human infection until now, human infection has long been suspected. A 1972 article in the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene reported Keystone virus antibodies in 19 to 21 percent of the people tested in the Tampa Bay region. The new report, titled Keystone Virus Isolated from a Florida Teenager with Rash and Subjective Fever: Another Endemic Arbovirus in the Southeastern United States?, says a teenage boy went into an urgent care clinic in North Central Florida with a rash and fever symptoms in August 2016, during the Zika virus epidemic in Florida and the Caribbean. Because of concerns about Zika, laboratory samples were collected from the patient; however, all studies were negative for Zika or related viruses. Unexpectedly, UF researchers did find Keystone virus when they did viral cultures from the patient samples. Although the patient did not report symptoms of encephalitis, researchers report that the virus grew well in Neuro-2A cell cultures. Neuro-2A cells are mouse brain cells, and the ability of the virus to grow in these cells suggests that Keystone virus can infect brain cells, and may pose a risk for brain infections. This virus is part of a group commonly known as the California serogroup of viruses, said John Lednicky, Ph.D., a research professor in the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions department of environmental and global health and a member of the Emerging Pathogens Institute. Lednicky is the first author of the report. These viruses are known to cause encephalitis in several species, including humans, he added. Jamestown Canyon virus and La Crosse encephalitis virus are two of the most commonly known viruses in the California serogroup. Due to the likelihood that Keystone virus is a common though previously unidentified pathogen among people in the region, Morris emphasized the need for additional research into the prevalence of vector-borne diseases in the United States. All sorts of viruses are being transmitted by mosquitoes, yet we dont fully understand the rate of disease transmission, he said. Additional research into the spread of vector-borne dis eases will help us shine a light on the pathogens that are of greatest concern to both human and animal health. Morris also stressed the importance of minimizing the risk of mosquito bites by using mosquito repellent at times and places where mosquitoes are present. 386-755-2268 CALL US!

WE HAVE TREATED OVER 100 PATIENTS! WHY GO OUT OF TOWN FOR INFUSIONS?My eyes are driving me crazy and I thought Id share what I know with you in case you are feeling the same way right about now. For me, its a triple hit from the smoke generated by fires nearby in Colorado, the ragweed pollen and some drywall dust kicked up when I demod a fireplace in my new home. Heres a sample of what Ive been doing to tame the red so that people stop asking if I was up all night drinking, lol, which I was not I assure you! I cant list everything here due to space considerations, so if youd like the complete list of my home remedies, sign up for my newsletter at suzycohen. com and Ill email it to you on Tuesday. 1. Dry up. Take an oral antihistamine such as Loratadine (Claritin). I am taking about a half tablet daily with a natural supplement which Ill tell you about in my longer article at my website. Now that youve got your antihistamine on board, proceed to step 2. 2. Wash your eyes. Irrigate your eye with saline and a sterile eye cup. Your local pharmacy, department store or online e-tailer has Bausch & Lombs brand of eye wash or irrigating eye wash or a similar brand of saline that comes with an eye cup. You do not want contact lens cleaner, you want to basically rinse your eye out. Its similar to opening your eye underwater in a pool, you just have to do it. 3. Apply a cold compress. Take a clean washcloth, dip it in ice water and wring out, then apply. I like to take them and fold the washcloth in half, then roll it up tightly. The ends of the washcloth will now fit into your eye socket, and it is such sweet relief! Be intelligent and apply sparingly, you just want to cool your eye for a few seconds, dont hurt yourself. 4. Get the red out. You can choose what you like, or can afford. I use various ones including Zaditor because this lasts 12 hours, and contains a histamine blocker only (Ketotifen), whereas most eye drops contain an antihistamine as well as a vasoconstrictor. If youre looking for that type of combination, try Opcon or Visine, or their store-brand generic equivalents which will save you money. 5. Lie down and breathe. Buy an eye pillow, preferably unscented and put it in the freezer for 15 minutes. You can always store yours in there, thats what I do. Put it on your eyes and just breathe. Mmm. 6. Look like a diva. Cucumber slices on the eyelids you see this all the time in spa pictures and the reason is that cucumbers reduce eye inflammation and theyll temporarily hide the fact that you pulled an all-nighter last night, played with your neighbors cat or went horseback riding through ragweed. You can apply them topically, or better yet, juice cucumbers along with some carrots and celery and drink it.Six ways to soothe allergic eyesDEAR PHARMACIST Suzy Coheninfo@dearpharmacist.com www.SuzyCohen.com Suzy Cohen is a Colorado-based pharmacist who got her start in Gainesville.

Virus found in Florida resident may be more widespreadUF summer program hosts mass casualty incident drill By CATIE WEGMAN and RAYMON TRONCOSOUF HealthAnnie Alexis didnt know who to help first. So many things were happening at once, she said. People were screaming, others were bleeding and some appeared to be dead. On the morning of June 7, the University of Floridas Summer Health Professions Education Program, or SHPEP, held its mass casualty incident exercise where Alexis and 78 other students learned how to assess injuries and treat victims at a pace they could expect if this were a real emergency. Sirens, screams and smoke filled the air as yellow caution tape cordoned off curious passers-by trying to catch a glimpse of the scene unfolding near UFs College of Public Health and Health Professions. Even though it was fake, it was still overwhelming, said Alexis, a UF pharmacy sophomore. Supervised by Jason Jones, M.D., Desmond Fitzpatrick, M.D., and Charles Hwang, M.D., all with the UF College of Medicines department of emergency medicine, the drill gave students interested in medical careers a chance to practice lifesaving skills in an emergency situation. Before they were sent out to treat the pretend victims, the students learned from local first responders how to stop a persons bleeding, make sure their airways were not restricted and how to properly apply a tourniquet. When an ambulance siren sounded, the SHPEP scholars knew it was go time. In two-person teams, they dashed through the scene, applying the principles of triage to assess the injured. They tagged each person according to the severity of their wounds from green, meaning walking wounded, through yellow and red to black, or fatal. Emergency medicine residents and UF Health students volunteered as the patients during the exercise. Using fake limbs and theatrical blood, they made their injuries as realistic as possible to the trainees. Joseph Washington, a UF pharmacy student, portrayed a victim with a severe head trauma. Based on his apparent wounds, the SHPEP scholars assessing the scene should run right by him in order to assist others with less-critical injuries. Having a brain injury, Im silent, Washington said. Im already a code red and Im so close to a code black they need to go find someone they can actually save. COURTESYUF Health students took part in a recent mass casualty drill. Morris

By ERIC OLSONAssociated PressOMAHA, Neb. Jackson Kowars first inning didnt portend the stellar afternoon he was about to have Tuesday. He didnt give up a run in the first, but he threw 25 pitches. Just reminded him hes going to have to be a little more economical, Gators coach Kevin OSullivan said. No worries, coach. Kowar struck out a career-high 13 in 6 2/3 shutout innings, mixing his changeup with a fastball still touching the mid-90s deep into his season-high 121-pitch performance that flummoxed Texas in a 6-1 win eliminating the Longhorns from the College World Series. Its probably the best Ive seen him, to be honest with you, with the whole package, with everything concerned, OSullivan said. I thought he was really good last week with Auburn, too. He was really good against A&M during SEC play. But on this stage, I think this is about as good as hes pitched all year.

The Lake City Reporters Girls Track & Field Athlete of the Year will be unveiled on Thursday COLLEGE WORLD SERIES By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comAfter stepping away from tennis for about five years, Cole Wehrli decided to try his hand again, returning to the court in his first high school season at Columbia. The freshman didnt disappoint. Wehrli started slow but progressed, dropping only two matches this year. The rising sophomore shined in his first season, finishing with the best win/loss record in singles and doubles (7-2, 8-1) on the team. Wehrli exceeded expectations as the No. 4 player, reaching the District 3A finals in both singles and doubles back in April. He really came through after not playing for five years, Columbia coach Tom Moore said. His record speaks for itself. Wehrlis breakout season was enough to earn him the Lake City Reporters Tennis Player of the Year. His arrival came at the right time as Columbia boys lost key players from last years team in his brother, Reid, and Colin Broome. He teamed up with rising junior Jacob Zechler during doubles this past season. The opportunity to compete with Zechler was one of the biggest reasons for joining the program, Wehrli says. Me and my buddy Jacob have known each other for a really long time, said Wehrli, who was also named J.V. soccer team MVP. And I wanted to help coach Tom. Wehrli and Zechler were a strong one-two punch for the WINNER SERVEDWehrli excelled on the court in his freshman season at Columbia.SERVED continued on 6BMiss St. goes bananas, 6B. NBA DRAFTGuessing game: Cavs enter NBA draft unsure of LeBrons plansBy TOM WITHERSAssociated PressCLEVELAND LeBron James wont be picking any players during Thursdays NBA draft. At least not directly. With the trajectory of their franchise riding on where he decides to play next season and beyond, the Cleveland Cavaliers will enter this years draft not knowing if theyre choosing a player to help them and James contend for another championship, develop a prospect for the future or potentially take a player to trade. Its a guessing game. James has until June 29 to exercise his $35.6 million contract option for next season or decline it and become an unrestricted free agent, officially making him the planets best and most coveted player. The 33-year-old is not expected to reveal his intentions until after the draft. By that time, the Cavs, still stinging from a Finals sweep at the hands of the Golden State Warriors, hope to have chosen a player that makes them more appealing to the three-time champion, who is mulling whether to leave them and his Northeast Ohio home for the second time in his career. Anything seems possible at this point. James and his representatives have kept an air-tight lid on their plans. The Cavs, too, have been secretive while general manager Koby Altman prepares for his first draft by consulting with his staff on what to do with the No. 8 overall pick, the one they received last summer in the seismic trade that sent All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics. Its quite a quandary for Cleveland, and James isnt helping the Cavs by keeping them in suspense. Its also possible that James hasnt made up his mind. Following Game 4 in the Finals, James said hell factor in his familys well-being along with his thirst to win more titles into a decision that once again has Cleveland edgy. I still want to be in championship mode, he said. I think Ive shown this year why I will still continue to be in championship mode. And while there are numerous unknowns, there is one indisputable fact: the Cavs must upgrade their roster to have any chance of keeping James and continuing a relationship that was resurrected in 2014. After yielding to Irvings request and trading him, the Cavs spent all last season trying to replace him. They never came close, and without a dependable second scoring option or a guard, James was forced to shoulder a heavier load than ever. He succeeded in getting to his eighth straight Cleveland holds the eighth pick from Kyrie Irving trade.LEBRON continued on 2BJOSE CARLOS FAJARDO/Bay Area News Group/TNS Cleveland Cavaliers LeBron James (23) and Cleveland Cavaliers Tristan Thompson (13) argue a call by an official while playing the Golden State Warriors during the first quarter of Game 2 of the NBA Finals on June 3 at Oracle Arena, in Oakland, Calif.

The Senators sent Hoffman to the San Jose Sharks, who then dealt him to the Florida Panthers. All told, the two transactions involved four play ers and six draft picks. The Sharks sent forward Mikkel Boedker, defensive prospect Julius Bergman and a 2020 sixth-round pick to the Senators for Hoffman, defensive prospect Cody Donaghey and a 2020 fifth-round pick. They then dealt Hoffman and a 2018 sev enth-round pick to the Panthers for 2018 fourthand fifth-round picks and a 2019 second-round pick in a move that clears significant cap space for San Jose to use in an offseason that includes potential free agent forwards John Tavares and Ilya Kovalchuk. The Senators were eager to deal Hoffman amid a dispute with team captain Karlsson and his wife. Melinda Karlsson recently filed an order of pro tection against Hoffmans fiancee alleging harassment and cyberbullying in the form of hundreds of derogatory online messages aimed at her and her husband, whose first child, a boy, was stillborn in March.Bucks Brown sues Milwaukee over arrestMILWAUKEE Milwaukee Bucks guard Sterling Brown sued the city of Milwaukee and its police department Tuesday, saying officers use of a stun gun during his arrest for a park ing violation constitutes excessive force and that they target ed him because he is black. Browns attorney Mark Thomsen filed the lawsuit in federal court, accusing police of discriminating against Mr. Brown on the basis of his race. The law suit alleges officers involved in his arrest used their incident report to try to reframe what happened to give the impression Brown was resisted and obstructed them. Brown had been talking with officers while waiting for a citation for illegally parking in a disabled spot outside a Walgreens at about 2 a.m. on Jan. 26, when officers took him down because he didnt imme diately remove his hands from his pockets as ordered. An officer yells: Taser! Taser! Taser!Neymar leaves Brazil training session limpingSOCHI, Russia Neymar limped out of Brazils training session at the World Cup on Tuesday because of pain in his right ankle. The Brazilian soccer confederation said the injury was not serious, adding Neymar left as a precaution and would be back in training on Wednesday. The federation said Neymar has been in pain since the teams 1-1 draw against Switzerland on Friday, when he was consistently fouled. Associated PressIN BRIEF WORLD CUP ROUNDUPRussia on brink of last 16, beats EgyptAssociated PressST. PETERSBURG, Russia Russia scored three goals in a 15-minute span early in the second half to set up a 3-1 win over Egypt on Tuesday, moving the host nation to the brink of the World Cups knockout stage. Mohamed Salah won and converted a penalty for a consolation goal on his return from injury but Egypts first World Cup in 28 years could be over in barely five days following a second straight loss. Ahmed Fathi poked the ball into his own net the fifth own-goal of the tournament to put Russia ahead in the 47th minute. Then Denis Cheryshev and Artyom Dzyuba scored in quick succession to leave Russia on course for a victory that followed up a 5-0 opening-night win over Saudi Arabia. Russias place in the round of 16 will be assured if Uruguay wins or draws against the Saudis on Wednesday. Those two scenarios would also eliminate Egypt, which started with a 1-0 loss to Uruguay.JAPAN 2, COLOMBIA 1In Saranask, Russia, Japan did what no other Asian team had ever done at a World Cup beat a South American squad on the biggest stage in soccer. The 2-1 victory over Colombia on Tuesday was another surprising result in an unpredictable tournament. A costly mistake by Colombia midfielder Carlos Sanchez in the opening minutes led to a red card and a penalty, helping Japan take an early lead. Coming in the third minute, it was the second fastest red card in World Cup history and the first of this years tournament. Yuya Osako won a bouncing ball to begin a sequence that led to the red card and the penalty. Sanchez blocked Shinji Kagawas shot with his extended right arm and was ejected. Kagawa then converted from the spot. Colombia, which played with 10 men for the rest of the match, scored late in the first half on Juan Quinteros rolling but accurate free kick, which sneaked inside the right post. Osakos gritty determination led to a 73rd-minute header from Keisuke Hondas corner kick that gave Japan three points in Group H.SENEGAL 2, POLAND 1 In Moscow, Senegal midfielder Mbaye Niang saw the signal from the referee to re-enter following treatment for an injury and jogged along the center line. Then Niang noticed Polands Grzegorz Krychowiak loft a backpass to Jan Bednarek, who hadnt realized Niang was back on the field. Niang outsprinted goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny to reach the ball about 40 yards from the net, knocked the ball forward and tapped it in for Senegals second fluky goal of the night. The Lions of Teranga held on for a 2-1 win over Poland and opened the World Cup with a surprising victory just like in 2002. Senegal became the first African team to win at this years World Cup after Egypt, Morocco, Nigeria and Tunisia were outscored 6-1 in losses. It went ahead in the 37th minute when Thiago Cioneks attempted block of Idrissa Gueyes shot deflected and wrong-footed Szczesny, who was picked to start over fellow Arsenal castoff Lukasz Fabianski. After Niang doubled the lead in the 60th, Krychowiak headed in Kamil Grosickis free kick in the 86th minute, ending a streak of five straight scoreless openers for Poland. Finals, but was then overmatched by the deeper Warriors. To remain viable contenders and keep James happy and healthy, the Cavs must address their backcourt issue this summer, either in the draft, through free agency or a trade. With this years draft top loaded with quality big men, theres a strong possibility the Cavs will have their pick of one of the elite guards, perhaps Oklahomas Trae Young or Alabamas Collin Sexton two players James has praised in the past. Young was college basketballs most electrifying player last season, averaging 27.4 points and 8.7 assists even while teams designed defenses specifically to stop him. James kept an eye on the 6-foot-2 scoring phenom from afar and is intrigued by not only his ability to break down teams but his unselfishness. Young could be gone by the time the Cavs are on the clock, but Sexton would be a nice backup plan. The 6-foot-3 guard averaged 19.2 points and 3.6 assists as a freshman and showed hes got a big-game gene, carrying the Crimson Tide on a run in the SEC tournament that secured the schools first NCAA berth since 2012. Sexton worked out for the Cavs at their training facility and owner Dan Gilbert referred to the 19-year-old as a very interesting draft prospect on Twitter. Theres also a chance that Cleveland could select a guard to use to entice a major trade. The Cavs have long been interested in Charlottes Kemba Walker, who will be a free agent after next season, and landing a player of that caliber would send a resounding message to James that they intend to keep chasing championships. Walker might not be enough to keep James here, but he would give the Cavs a new star to build around. James has remained off social media since the playoffs began in April, and his self-imposed blackout has continued since the Finals ended. Hes been quiet, but theres no doubt hes watching. Every move. LEBRON Continued From 1B

LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS WEDNESDAY, JUNE 20, 2018 3B CIPHER DEAR ABBY: I have a 59-year-old brother-inlaw who has always been a proud bachelor. He isnt a rich, handsome, George Clooney-type bachelor, but a hand-to-mouth, burping, uncouth Shallow Hal kind of bachelor. He befriended a woman with four daughters, paying most of his attention to one of the daughters. He would take the woman and her girls to dinner, and take the daughters shopping without the mother. Fast forward eight years. He wants to take the one daughter on a trip to Hawaii. And he has been telling everyone she is now 18 (the girl is still in high school). Should I say something to him, or mind my own business? He will likely hang up on me. I dont know the daughters or their mom well. Am I wrong to hear some alarm bells going o? -WARY IN WASHINGTON DEAR WARY: No, you are not wrong. e statement that the girl is now 18 is a red ag for me, too. Rather than talk to your brotherin-law, inform the mother that he may be grooming her daughter for something more than an innocent tour of the islands. She should have noticed something was amiss eight years ago, when one daughter was singled out for special treatment, and put a stop to it then. DEAR ABBY: I have been with my husband for ve years. Early in our relationship, he became violent. Because of my economic status at the time, leaving was not an option. I became pregnant with our child during our rst year together. He ended up getting arrested for domestic violence against me (nothing toward our child) twice, and moved out for a year while court proceedings were taking place. At rst, he was incredibly cruel to me. I was so devastated by his arrests that I was grieving as if he had died. He then went through a series of interventions, and sought medical care and psychological counseling. He used to drink, but no longer does. Aer a year, I let him move back home. But I no longer feel the same toward him. I am terribly unhappy. Even though he hasnt touched me and has toned down his anger, I cant forget the things he said and did to me. I dont want a divorce, though, because I do still love him. I just dont know how to proceed. Please help me. -VICTIM IN OREGON DEAR VICTIM: Nowhere in your letter did you mention whether YOU sought counseling to help YOU recover from the verbal and physical abuse. If you didnt, do it now. ere is a saying, You cant unring the bell. You may love your husband, but verbal abuse can leave as many, or more, scars than physical abuse does. Until and unless you can completely forgive him for what he did to you, you wont be able to move on. And by the way, if it turns out that you cannot, dont blame or punish yourself for it. Sometimes its better for two people who care about each other to go their separate ways because it is healthier for both of them.

By ERIC OLSONAssociated PressOMAHA, Neb. Go bananas, Mississippi State Bulldogs! Youre one win away from the College World Series finals. Jordan Westburg hit a grand slam, doubled and drove in seven runs and Mississippi State continued its surprise postseason surge by beating North Carolina 12-2 on Tuesday. The Bulldogs (39-27), with two wins at the CWS, are off until Friday. Win then or on Saturday, and theyll be playing for the national championship next week. North Carolina plays an elimination game today against Oregon State, a team the Tar Heels beat 8-6 on Saturday. The winner faces Mississippi State on Friday. This game was all about Westburg, the freshman who two weeks ago came up with the Rally Banana thats become the Bulldogs good-luck charm in the NCAA Tournament. His seven RBIs, on the slam in the second inning and three-run double in the eighth, tied a CWS record. I think we had a good banana today. Thats all I can say, Westburg deadpanned. Westburg crushed a breaking pitch Austin Bergner left hanging, and the ball landed in the seats above the leftfield bullpen for a 4-1 lead. When Westburg returned to the dugout, a teammate handed him his Rally Banana. Westburg came up with the Bulldogs alternate mascot during a regional game against Oklahoma on June 3. The Bulldogs were struggling when he went into the tunnel and grabbed a banana. Instead of eating it, he put it on his head in hopes of turning the Bulldogs luck. It must have worked. Mississippi State won, Westburg and his banana got some TV time, and the meme took off. Since then, Westburg has been the curator of the fruit. (No, its not the same banana every game.) Hes put sunscreen and bug spray on it. Hes wrapped one in a towel, as if it were releaxing at a spa. Sometimes Westburg or a teammate puts the banana up to his face like a mustache; other times its a faux radar gun. A couple Mississippi State fans have been dressed up in banana outfits, others wear Rally Banana T-shirts, and the Bulldogs have received best wishes from banana producers Dole and Chiquita. If youre going to do all the shenanigans in the dugout, Westburg said, you might have to step it up on the field and back that up. It was nice to do that today. MSU interim head coach Gary Henderson said the Rally Banana offsets the pressures of the postseason, so hes all for embracing the fun of Westburgs fruit. Hes got to make the phone call on the banana, right? Henderson said. Youve got to be able to do those things and become somebody different when youre in the box. Hes an intense kid. Super intense. Hes not a goofball. When he finds a way to let some of the air out a little bit and enjoy it and have some fun, and not grind, grind, grind, I think its incumbent upon us to notice that and respect that thats important. After Westburgs slam, Bergner (7-3) retired 16 in a row until the start of the eighth inning, when the Bulldogs converted six hits, a walk, a hit batter and two errors into eight runs. Well, the good news is we get to play again, Carolina coach Mike Fox said. Youve got to turn the page pretty quickly out here. I dont think any of us will want our season to end on that performance, but youve got to give Mississippi State credit. Carolinas Kyle Datres doubled leading off the game against Konnor Pilkington (3-6) and came home on a sacrifice fly. The Tar Heels (44-19) didnt score again until the seventh. 6B WEDNESD AY, JUNE 20, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER COLLEGE WORLD SERIESCOURTESYCole Wehrli went 7-2 in singles and 8-1 in doubles this season for Columbia.

Tigers. The two reached the doubles district finals and helped Columbia placed third out of eight teams. And they didnt lose often, Moore said. After being away from tennis, Wehrli credits his smooth transition to Moore. The best part of this year was just learning everything from Tom, he said. Hes such an amazing coach. I dont think I wouldve gotten half as far without him. The team wouldnt have gotten as far without him. Im surprised how good we did, and its all because of him. While Wehrli went furthest at districts, Moore says each player Brien Boudreau, Tanner Thomas, Christian Choing and Zecher were all deserving of the award. Without any one of these players, we wouldnt have been in the position when we entered districts, the longtime coach said. We would not have won third if it werent for Tanner coming through. Christian stepped up to play one. Brien came through at No.5 and Jacob was our solid No.3 I truly believe it was the team that made the CHS tennis player of the year. Wehrli says he plans to rejoin the tennis team in 2019 after a standout first season. He referees soccer matches and also coaches a junior team, Moore said of the two-sport athlete. I know his first love is soccer but Im hoping hell come back out and dedicate himself to the game of the tennis next year. SERVED Continued From 1Bdraft pick struck out the side in the third and sixth innings and broke his previous high of 11 Ks he set against TCU in the CWS last year. He became the first pitcher in the CWS since UCLA teammates Gerrit Cole and Trevor Bauer in 2010 to record 13 strikeouts. Those guys are doing pretty well for themselves right now, so thats pretty cool company, Kowar said. Hes the first to strike out 13 at the CWS in fewer than seven innings in 40 years, according to ESPN. Jonathan India, the No. 5 overall draft pick by the Cincinnati Reds and Southeastern Conference player of the year, singled to make it 1-0 in the first inning and he broke the game open with a three-run homer in the sixth. Texas starter Blair Henley (6-7) struggled with his control and lasted only 2 2/3 innings, the second-shortest of his 22 career starts. He gave up four hits, walked four and threw a wild pitch. Florida (48-20) came into the game after a 6-3 loss to Texas Tech in its CWS opener. The Gators had committed 16 errors in their last 11 games and had batted .186 and scored a total of eight runs in their previous three games. The Gators played errorfree against the Longhorns, and their offense had 10 hits. Kowar (10-5) didnt allow a base runner past second until the seventh. With runners on second and third, Kowar struck out Tate Shaw and Ryan Reynolds and then left to applause from both Florida and Texas fans. The first inning, the first three batters I didnt make really any quality pitches, Kowar said. Getting through that first was big, and then I was able to kind of get the fastball command working, and everything else played off of that the rest of the way. Chase Shugart took over for Henley in the third and kept it a 1-0 game until there were two outs in the sixth. Nelson Maldonados RBI single came before Indias 21st home run of the season made it 5-0. Nelson, the whole year, hes a clutch hitter for us, India said. He rarely strikes out. He competes at the plate. Thats what we needed. And he came through clutch for us. As they say, hitting is contagious. Just pass it on to me and Ill pass it on to the next. Texas (42-23) broke through for a run in the eighth on DJ Petrinskys one-out single. The Longhorns struck out a season-high 15 times against Kowar, Jonathan Butler and Michael Byrne, the most for the program since fanning 17 times against TCU in 2017. People expected it to be a building year due to everybody we lost last year, Shugart said. But these guys proved everybody wrong and thats because of their attitude. The attitude we had was gritty. We werent giving anything; we had to take it. We took the Big 12 championship and the regional and super regionals. We went out and competed every inning, every out, and thats what good teams do and I wouldnt trade this for the world.UP NEXTFlorida plays another elimination game Thursday against the loser of Wednesdays game between Arkansas and Texas Tech. Their game was postponed Tuesday night because of the threat of rain in the Omaha area. The Gators still need three wins to reach the best-of-three finals for the second year in a row.
