COUPLE continued on 7A Rule will kill our economySEPTIC TANK REGS New requirements will add up to $15K to cost of a new home.By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comNewly built homes are about to get significantly more expensive in Columbia County thanks to incoming septic tank regulations, two industry insiders say, fearing it will bring construction to a crawl. Starting July 1, conventional septic tanks cannot be installed in lots smaller than an acre within a special area which accounts for most of southern Columbia County. (See map, Page 8A, with accompanying instructions to see if you live in the affected area.) Instead, builders and homeowners must utilize costlier nitrogen-reducing systems aimed at protecting the water supply. Its another government regulation thats going to kill our economy in Lake City, said developer Tom Eagle. The rule is established by the Florida Springs and Aquifer Protection Act, which the state legislature passed in 2016. Excessive nitrate pollution promotes runaway algae growth, which threatens underwater life, according to the Suwannee River Water Management District. There have been documented cases of infant death and serious illness due to excessive nitrate levels in drinking water, according to the DEP website. County Manager Ben Scott said the nitrogen-reducing septic tanks are estimated to be anywhere from $8,000 to $15,000 more expensive than a standard $3,500 system. In addition, maintenance and permitting costs are estimated at about $350 per year. Eagle said he has a 40-lot subdivision and an eight-lot subdivision that will both be affected. The added cost will severely stunt home construction in the area, he said. I dont know how Columbia Countys going to handle it, Eagle said. Its definitely going to impact the buyers ability which were struggling already to be able to afford a new home. Wealthier communities such as Duval County can easily eat the extra cost, he said. This community cant. EagleThe nitrogenreducing septic tanks are estimat ed to be anywhere from $8,000 to $15,000 more expensive than a standard $3,500 system.

It is a national event with more than 45,000 Amateur radio operators in the United States trying to contract other ham radio operator across the globe.

Cavett Robert, 1907-1997, A mer ican businessmanCops: Mother-son team scores $12K on stolen tractor scamBy COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comA four-month investigation into a stolen $40,000 tractor led Suwannee County Sheriffs Office to a Live Oak mother and son team who reportedly worked together to sell the farm equipment for only $12,000, SCSO reports. Gage Duncan Carmichael, 20, and Charyle Renee Gaskins, 46, of Live Oak were jailed Thursday in connection with a stolen Kubota tractor from Howlands Feed Mill also in Live Oak. The investigators probable cause statement said Carmichael and Gaskins sold the farm equipment to a Raiford man who paid Gaskins $8,000 and Carmichael $4,000 for the tractor. The initial report was made in early February but the missing tractor turned up in June when the investigator responded to a Live Oak auction company. When running the serial numbers I found that the tractor was listed as stolen out of Suwannee County ... and was in fact the tractor stolen from the Feed Mill, the SCSO officer reported. According to the report, he had contacted both Carmichael and Gaskins prior to the attempted auction of the Kubota, now making its way through a third sale from a previous auction site in High Springs. The officer spoke with witnesses who saw Carmichael in the tractor on their land, and reportedly told him Carmichael said the tractor was an inheritance from his grandfather. However, he later told them the tractor belonged to Howlands Feed Mill, the report says. The tractor has since become the possession of an Ohio-based insurance company that payed out over $14,000 to its finance company, SCSO says. Ohio Indemnity Insurance Co. ... stated they wished to pursue criminal charges against the two individuals, the report said. Sold $40K machine on the cheap, say Suwannee deputies. Carmichael Gaskins FEMA scam lands Live Oak man in jail; systematic and ongoing fraud allegedBy CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comA Live Oak man was arrested Monday after Suwannee County deputies say he put up the title to his truck for collateral on a loan while he waited for a FEMA check, but then sold the vehicle to someone else. Justin Brown Gregg, 28, of County Road 49, faces two felony fraud charges and a perjury charge. On Oct. 11, Gregg borrowed $6,000 from Walter Sterling and put up the title for his 2002 Kenworth semitruck as collateral, according to a Suwannee County Sheriffs Office report. Gregg told Sterling he needed the money to cover payroll for Hurricane Irma clean up and that he was waiting for a check from FEMA. But weeks after the deal, Gregg went to a logging company, Pettrey Logging, and sold the truck without the title to John Pettrey, according to the report. Gregg told the buyer he couldnt find the title and would get a duplicate from the tag office. The buyer gave Gregg half the money upfront and the other half when they met at the tag office days later on Oct. 31. Gregg applied for a lost title, making no mention that hed signed it over to Starling as part of their deal, acording to the report. While investigating the case, a deputy spoke to a man involved in Greggs cleanup in Central Florida. Not only did Gregg not pay him for the work, the man said, but he gave Gregg $1,000 of his own money to start the cleanup operation. It appeared Gregg allowed individuals to work for him and enjoyed the profits without paying, the man told deputies. Based on the investigation, Gregg engaged in systematic and ongoing conduct to defraud several people, according to the report. Gregg is currently on felony probation for a previous scam involving bad checks and a boat in Columbia County. GreggSUWANNEE C RIME Already on probation for boat-buying scam in Columbia County.For Lake City Council, Eugene Jefferson will be seeking a sixth term against Vanessa George and Clarence Tucker for District 10, and for District 14, with incumbent George Ward not seeking reelection, its a three way matchup between Befaithful Bea Coker, Chris Greene and Ricky Jernigan.

FIELDContinued From 1A 2 face drug charges after searchBy STEVE WILSONswilson@lakecityreporter.comDespite efforts to hide by the man, a Lake City man and woman are facing multiple charges following their arrest by a Columbia County Sheriffs Deputy on Thursday. ANiaus Ray, 26, of Lake City, has been charged with possession of marijuana and with possession of drug equipment. He was transported to the Columbia County Detention Facility. Also arrested and facing charges of drug possession, drug trafficking and possession of drug equipment is Madeline Joyce Thornton, 19, also of Lake City. According to a CCSO report, a sheriffs deputy reported to a civil dispute at 317 SW Wise Drive in incorporated Columbia County. Following that call, the deputy received another call in reference to drug activity, specifically that a vehicle was leaving the driveway at 411 SW Wise Drive, then stopped. The driver dropped his seat to conceal himself from view, the deputy said in the arrest report. Thornton was at the residence at the time and was detained during the search, according to the report. After making contact with the vehicle, the deputy detected the smell of marijuana, and the subsequent search of the vehicle yielded 14 pounds of marijuana. At this point the multi-jurisdictional task force was called in, and a search warrant was obtained, and from the residence detectives recovered eight crack cookies, several pills 62 grams of the synthetic stimulant AlphaPVP, and three guns, one of which had been reported stolen in Columbia County. In addition, a 13-year-old girl was located in a bedroom at the residence and asked to walk outside. Both Ray and Thornton had been released from the county detention facility as of Saturday afternoon, on $21,000 and $256,000 bond, respectively. R ay Thornton

Fort White High School philanthropist J. Quinton Rumph now has a permanent plaque located in the schools main office. FWHS principal Keith Couey, former FWHS principal Keith Hatcher, and school foundation director Dianna Swisher were the main forces behind the plaque. The plaque reads: Quinton Rumph Fort White High School Class of 1941 NOVEMBER 8, 1923 MARCH 29, 2018 This plaque was placed in the front office of Fort White High School by the Columbia County Public Schools Foundation in memory and in honor of Mr. J. Quinton Rumph. The last of eight children born to Carnot and Elizabeth Rumph, Mr. Rumph was one of 14 in his graduating class at Fort White High School during the Great Depression. Soon after graduation, in 1941, he hitchhiked with a borrowed $10 bill and a suitcase to take a job at the Naval Air Station in Jacksonville. He joined the navy during World War II and was present in Tokyo Bay when the Japanese surrendered on September 2, 1945. After the war, he married Ann Stevens and graduated from law school at the University of Florida in 1946. Mr. Rumph became a highly successful attorney and businessman in Jacksonville where he lived for the rest of his life. Never one to forget his roots, Mr. Rumph established an endowment that will, perpetually, provide scholarships for graduates of Fort White High School, especially those who have a desire to return to the Columbia County area after college to give back to their community. What did Mr. Rumph do to deserve such an honored plaque? He provided $329,000 in college scholarship money to selected FWHS seniors. Some of these scholarship recipients: Leslie Ammerman, Ashley Beckman, Danielle Leon, Caitlyn Wilson, Tiffany Joseph, Dustin Cason, Stephen Lynch, Whitney Bigelow, Della Katharine Etheridge, Corey Wilson, Molly Shoniker, Sherod Keen, Dominic Deluca, and Trace Wilkinson. All these are now college graduates employed in their respective communities as physicians, attorneys, engineers, teachers, nurses, etc. to name just a few professions and all are doing great. Mr. Rumph also established nearly $3,000,000 for endowments to benefit future FWHS graduates after his death which will be available now. Now you can see why Mr. Rumph so richly deserves this plaque.SKIPPING AROUND*Of the five assistant principals working at CHS in 1997, three were destined for larger leadership roles in our school system. Joann Chamberlin later served five years as CHS principal, Keith Hatcher later served 14 years as FWHS principal, and Mike Flanagan went on to serve eight years as School Superintendent. And, of course, principal Terry Principal went on to become county school superintendent. *Four members of the local Mary Kay and Darrel Mathis family had a total of 52 years perfect attendance in our school system: Stephanie (CHS 2009), Katherine (CHS 2011), Danielle (CHS 2013), and Matthew (CHS 2017). 52 years! *Kristina Rodriguez (CHS 2006) was elected Governor of Girls State and Tommy Ives (CHS 1950) was elected Governor of Boys State. *Dr. Walter P.

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, ChairmanLETTERS TO THE EDITOR OUR OPINIONWhos qualified to lead, and how can you tell? The field is set for this falls primary and general election. Just because someone has qualified to seek local office doesnt mean they are actually qualified to hold the seat they seek, however. How do you assess their abilities? A county commission seat, as we see it, is akin to a seat on the board of directors of a $150 million a year corporation, that sum being roughly our annual budget. In the end, commissioners are managing a corporation funded by your tax dollars. Their focus is rarely on social issues (though these are the ones that sometimes get all the attention). Their focus is fiscal, pure and simple. How commissioners manage the peoples money is what makes them a failure or success. If you suspect or know based on past experience that any given candidate is not up to the task, do not vote for them. Its that simple. Same for the city council, except with smaller numbers about $50 million at last count. As a whole, neither of the aforementioned bodies has anything to brag about concerning their money-managing skills. The county is looking at a tax hike in part because the commissions class of 1986 one member of which remains built a jail that was nearly obsolete when it opened. Plus they cant keep basic road upkeep and construction properly funded, which is Job One in a small, rural community such as this. As for the city council, they are even worse, with tax hikes and new fees that threaten to drive away the very people who pay the bills. The school board is a little different. They spend, spend, spend as well, but much of it is on unfunded mandates they are required by law to enact. The people at whom to direct your rage in this case often reside in Tallahassee. For everybody else, look them over hard and ask the toughest question of all: Will they guard your money as carefully as you do? Very few will. As for the rest, show them no mercy. Show them the door. A plaque for Quinton Rumph Paper printed truth about murderTo the Editor: At the same time, I find it interesting, ironic and saddening that the Lake City Reporter was barraged with letters complaining the newspaper was reporting the truth about a recent gangster-style hit. Quite frankly, I found the headline Victim had a troubled past to be quite generous to the victim and his family. Apparently, he had not put his past behind him yet. Reports that his murder was retaliation for being a police informant only bolster the idea that he was still traveling in dark circles. Even the victims mother only claimed I never condoned my sons lifestyle. None of the 4 printed letters, not even the mothers, would claim that he was trying to turn his life around and do better. The letter writers only complained about the fact that the truth was reported and then accused the paper of being racist, capitalistic, opportunistic, callous, degrading, etc. Not one of the writers expressed any sense of shame for the fact this victim was a member and product of their proverbial village. When newspapers and news sources hide and sugarcoat the truth so as not to offend someone, our collective society is in deep trouble. It is the duty of a newspaper and an obligation to all of its readership to report whole truth and all known facts! Robert Long Lake City Morris Williams Quinton RumphPhilip Levines pie-in-the-sky nightmareTo the Editor: Apparently the Democrat candidates for governor both have the idea that assault rifles have to be taken away, so I will save that for another letter. This may, in one way, be more important because it will impact every person in the state gun owner, or not. Mr. Levine proposes to give every teacher in the state a pay raise of $10,000. According to the internet, there are 167,537 teachers from K-12 in Florida. That would be One BILLION, seven hundred sixty-five MILLION, three hundred seventy THOUSAND DOLLARS. Just for showing up. That is on top of what they already are paid. Nobody has to work harder, or do a better job, and the educational system in Florida is already one of the poorest in the nation. Of the smartest states, Florida is number 5 from the bottom of the list, and has a ranking of number 29 out of 50, with a grade of ONLY a C. Thats just barely average. Most kids in this state are being cheated out of a proper education, and are being conned into believing that they MUST go to college, as well. Most kids would be better off either going to a trade school of some kind, or into the military at least for a couple of years. Does nobody understand that a carpenter, electrician, or plumber will make much more than minimum wage after just a few years in his trade. Where are we supposed to get the kind of money that Mr. Levine proposes to give the teachers. Maybe he plans to get it out of his own pocket. I know most politicians get in the game to get power, authority, and money. Maybe he will start a gofundme for this pie-in-the-sky nightmare. Or, maybe he will just raise taxes on US, the citizens of Florida. James Parks Lake City

Richard Heston, CARS past president, also noted that local ham radio operators were taking part in Field Day as the meaty part of hurricane season approaches, and their communication capabilities could be put to the test. In addition, this year local ham operators were focusing on getting more youngsters into the hobby with STEM-created (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math puzzles. Weve already had about 10 people sign-up who are interested in opening a new avenue of our future, Heston said. Satellites, robotics and the use of a 3-D printer were used by local club members as they displayed the main tools of their hobby to todays school-aged children. Theyre watching how this technology all works and its pretty fascinating to them to see it actually happen and for them to know they can do it. There are more than 700,000 amateur radio operators in the United States and approximately three million worldwide. The ability to communicate across the country and around the world without the need for the Internet or a cell phone network is how HAM radio operators gained their popularity decades ago. Heston said the hobby is still beneficial in emergency scenarios when traditional means of communications are inaccessible and HAM radio systems are nearly the only way to communicate. Weve got to get this technology back in the schools, he said. Kids need to know how to do this. Heston said there is currently a vacuum in society where there is a tremendous need for youngsters with technological skills, and that CARS is trying to get children to learn some of those technical skills through the basics of using and building a ham radio. There is no backup technology or training in the high schools, Heston said. Its not in the curriculum anymore. RADIOContinued From 1A

For details, call the Lake City Reporters classiOBITUARIES Soon someone claiming to be an attorney entered the conversation, said Jim Hamilton of Lake City. The smooth talking lawyer instructed Hamilton and his wife that $2,000 would get Michael out of his predicament. There was a caveat though. The driver of the government vehicle was intoxicated too, but had diplomatic immunity. Michael wouldnt be charged if they acted fast to get him out of jail, the story went. Altogether, he said Michaels bond was $20,000, but all they needed to put up was $2,000. However, they needed to get it ASAP, the same day, Hamilton was told. The man claimed to be a public defender working in Tallahassee, and couldnt meet Hamilton or his wife in person to retrieve the money. But getting the money to him would be easy they were told. After consulting a secretary, he instructed them to go to Walmart and get four $500 gift cards. We were hit, said Hamilton. It was a scam. They were given a day to gather the funds and put it on giftcards. They had it down pat, he said. Hamilton called it the most elaborate, well thought out scam hed heard of. Everything had an answer, he said. Someone was impersonating his grandson, and Hamilton said it was a good impersonation. But something was off about the voice, he said. He sounded so real. I said Michael you do sound a little different. He said the air bag exploded and broke my nose, Hamilton said. Luckily, Hamiltons wife, 79, had been a banker before her retirement. He said they took the information to his grandsons girlfriend who works at a local bank and she promptly told them it was all fake. Their grandson, Michael, was in class at a college in Jacksonville that day. He couldnt be reached, which Hamilton said was pivotal to the scheme. They contacted Columbia County Sheriffs Office and lodged a complaint. Hamilton said a CCSO officer helped them rest of the way. They were going to try to help CCSO land the scammer. At the officers instruction, they called back the fake state public defender, who said his name was Harvey Green. Green told them he would have someone meet them to pick up the cards, so with CCSO leading them through the call, Hamilton goaded the scammer without giving him what he asked for. They will never come here and pick it up they will take the numbers, Hamilton said. With the gift card serial numbers they could access the funds for online purchases as easily as if they had the plastic cards themselves. The scammers ratcheted up their drama to a fever pitch trying to get Hamilton to read the numbers, he said. He (fake Michael) continued to cry and plea and beg, he said. They worked on me like you could not believe. And the policeman was giving a thumbs up. Hamilton said the scammers knew their grandsons background and about his time in the military. They used it to give authenticity to the story. At the end thats where I just hung up with him screaming and yelling, Hamilton said. Ultimately the scammer got away. Hamilton said law enforcement told them it was too complex to trace him, especially with most of the information coming from publicly accessible online records. Now, however, Hamilton wants to warn others, especially seniors, against the scam. Were not dummies but this thing really had us down the road he said. Its going to work on others, believe me. He said it all happened in the span of a day, Thursday, June 14, and started with a 10:30 a.m. phone call.Scam strikes fear in hearts of local couple COUPLEContinued From 1A Few surprises as state candidates qualify Floridas 2018 state elections are set, with seven major candidates running for governor, three contested state Cabinet seats and fifteen state Senate incumbents facing opposition as the qualifying period closed Friday. At the top of the list is the campaign to replace term-limited Republican Gov. Rick Scott, who is running against U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson. Chris King, a Democrat and Orlando-area businessman, was the last major gubernatorial candidate to file, submitting his paperwork shortly before the five-day qualifying period for state and local offices ended at noon Friday. King entered a crowded Democratic field that includes former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham of Tallahassee, former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine, Palm Beach investor Jeff Greene and Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum. Heading into the Aug. 28 Republican primary for governor are Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam and U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis of Palm Coast. In other statewide races, 14 candidates not including write-in candidates qualified for the three Cabinet seats. Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis, who was appointed to his post by Scott, will face former state Sen. Jeremy Ring, D-Margate, in November. The News Service of Florida
8A S UNDAY, JUNE 24, 2018 LOCAL LA KE CIT Y REPOR TER We do not have the income base in Columbia County to absorb another hit, Eagle said. Most of the homes built in the area need septic tanks, Eagle said. Im eco-friendly, dont get me wrong, but theres got to be a better solution, he said. This years Parade of Homes, the first in Lake City in more than a decade, saw a record number of 17 newly built homes on the market, Eagle said. If the septic tank rule had been in place, that number would have been about four or five, he said. The commercial real estate market has already slowed down here, Eagle said. Now were going to slow the residential new construction down, he said. Its just unreasonable. Prominent Columbia County home builder Bryan Zecher said the rule will disproportionately impact lower-income, first-time buyers. When a $200,000 home becomes a $215,000 home due to the rule, it amounts to a significant increase for buyers in that price range Thats almost an eight percent increase overnight, he said. But more expensive houses are typically constructed on lots larger than an acre and wont be affected. An increase in cost of this magnitude I think it will affect the construction industry, he said. Hopefully its something that we can recover from. The septic tank requirement is one of the three biggest issues facing the industry today, the other two being rising lumber costs and a labor shortage, he said. Charlie Keith, who owns a pawn shop in Lake City and also sits on the Suwannee River Water Management District board, said the rules are the inevitable consequence of growth. For us to have sustainable water, were going to have to make changes, said Keith, who was speaking as a private citizen. He acknowledged that the rules would have some adverse effects, but said nitrate pollution is a large problem that must be addressed. Everybody is going to have to tighten their belt, because theres just a lot of consumption out of the aquifer, he said. We have to eliminate the nitrates as best we can so we have quality water. Keith said its better to take action now rather than wait until the problem grows. The public will have to grasp that change is inevitable to sustain life, he said. Lake City Board of Realtors Executive Vice President Dan Gherna said that though the price of a newly constructed home will go up due to the rules, there are a number of other factors driving up costs, such as President Trumps tariffs on Canadian lumber. Its just another wrench in the cog, Gherna said. About 75 percent of houses on the market are on half-acre lots, Gherna estimated. That might slow down housing construction, but likely wont cripple the housing market as a whole in Columbia County. Theres not going to be a significant impact, he said. Gherna said he is afraid the rules are written too broadly, making it easier to pass more restrictive measures down the road. They left the door open for tighter regulations, he said. When state officials went over the new rule during Thursdays County Commission meeting, Zecher voiced his opposition. Youre going to hurt out industry, he told commissioners. I think thats a major economic punch. The goal of the regulation is to eventually reduce the amount of harmful nutrients in the water supply by 1.8 million to 2 million pounds, Florida Department of Environmental Protection geologist Terry Hansen said at Thursdays County Commission meeting. Its a large task, he said. About 7 percent of those nutrients come from septic tanks. Hansen acknowledged that the change will have an adverse effect on homebuyers. Thats the hand were dealt, he said. And we have to play it. The rules wont apply to septic tank permits requested before July 1, and theyre good for 18 months, Hansen said. Jim Tatum, director of nonprofit group Our Santa Fe River, told commissioners he found it puzzling that lawmakers are only forceful about protecting water quality when it comes to residential septic tanks, while agriculture is responsible for the majority of nitrate runoff. The burden they place on the citizens is not evenly distributed, Tatum said.

Contact Eric Jackson or Jordan Kroeger754-0420 email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comTyler Shelnut takes no days off. The high school season may be over but baseball continues for the young phenom as hes in the midst of summer league now. The rising junior made great strides last summer, and it was evident during his sophomore campaign at Fort White. Shelnut dominated both on the mound and at the plate. He finished the year with a team-best .426 batting average while also notching 69 strikeouts. He carried the Indians to 13 wins with his strong performances as a starting pitcher and shortstop. His consistency and versatility was enough to earn him the Lake City Reporters Baseball Player of the Year. Well, you dont play for (awards) but you just play hard and do what you can, he said. Shelnut has turned heads at Fort White since his arrival last year. After a breakout freshman season, the standout utility player only improved that summer, enough to gain the attention of University of Florida. The UF commit played like a future Gator this past season scoring runs, striking out batters, anything he could to get a win. Probably his biggest area (of improvement) was his offense, Fort White coach Rick Julius said of Shelnut. I think he was battling like .250 his freshman year and he batted .400 this year. So we put him in the leadoff spot because his on-base percentage really got up. That was probably his biggest improvement: offense. As one of the teams leaders, Shelnut anchored the Indians throughout the year before an early exit, losing 2-1 against P.K. Yonge in the District 5 tournament. A tough loss for the tribe, a squad that had potential to win their first title since 2014. We had the talent, he said. We had the talent we needed to win it. We just didnt come together By TIM BOOTHAssociated PressSOCHI, Russia The desperate world champions from Germany were seconds from losing control of their World Cup fate when Toni Kroos whispered to Marco Reus just outside Swedens penalty area. With the score tied in the fifth minute of stoppage time, Kroos seemed to remind Reus of a tricky set play from training that will live in World Cup lore. Down to 10 men after Jerome Boateng was given a second yellow card, Germany rallied for a 2-1 victory over Sweden on Saturday to suddenly revive its title defense thanks to a strike from Kroos that caught the Swedes by surprise and wont soon be forgotten in Germany. The fact Toni Kroos put it away is just incredible, Reus said. Hes shown that talent on previous occasions but really in this case it was practically the very last opportunity to win this match. Kroos lined up for a free kick as if he was going for goal but just tapped the ball to Reus, who held it with his toe as the defenders paused. Kroos swung his right foot, curling the ball past a spinning Sebastian Larsson and over the outstretched hand of diving goalkeeper Robin Olsen. The Swedes watched the ball go in, mouths open in disbelief. The Germans ran to Kroos and erupted in emotional relief. Happy of course. It was a tough game again today for us, Kroos said. We suffered. ...

Mexicos victory over S. Korea mutes criticsAssociated PressROSTOV-ON-DON, Russia The criticism of Mexicos national team heading into the World Cup was loud and scathing. The answer has been emphatic. The Mexicans won their second straight match at the tournament, beating South Korea 2-1 Saturday to move ever closer to a spot in the round of 16. We didnt listen to the criticism, said Javier Hernandez, one of the scorers against South Korea. It was just noise. Mexico opened its World Cup by upsetting defending champion Germany 1-0. A second victory on Saturday gives it six points and a chance to win Group F on Wednesday when the team faces Sweden. We want the Mexican people to enjoy this. We are going to enjoy it, Hernandez said. But as of tomorrow we will be working hard thinking about Sweden and regardless of the results of the matches against Germany and South Korea, we are going to go out there to get the three points. Hernandez and Carlos Vela scored a goal each at Rostov Arena. Vela converted from the penalty spot in the 26th minute after Jang Hyun-soo handled the ball while trying to stop a cross from Andres Guardado. Hernandez added the second in the 66th, scoring his 50th goal for Mexico. He hit the ball low past goalkeeper Jo Hyeon-woo after collecting a pass from Hirving Lozano. We have beaten two brilliant and complicated teams, Germany and South Korea, Hernandez said. Our talent and hard work have paid off. Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio said he prepared more for the match against South Korea than for the game against Germany. Very often when you play countries or teams with less of a footballing history, human beings tend to rest on their laurels a little bit. They tend to relax, they tend to lose focus, so every MEXICO continued on 4B SHELNUT continued on 6B GERMANY continued on 4B B1

Realmuto was focused purely on putting the ball in play with the bases loaded and two strikes on him. He ended up putting it out of play. Realmuto hit a grand slam during a five-run seventh inning and the Miami Marlins beat the Colorado Rockies 6-2 Saturday. With one out, Realmuto fouled off three pitches against struggling reliever Bryan Shaw before lining an elevated cutter just over the right-field wall. The drive helped Miami stop a three-game skid and ended the Rockies winning streak at four. Early, I felt like I was trying to do a little too much in that at-bat, Realmuto said. Once I got to two strikes I was really just trying to fight and put the ball in play. Thats really it. Shaw said he threw the pitch he wanted against Realmuto. It just ended with a bad result. We executed where we wanted to and he hit it, Shaw said. Trevor Richards (2-4) gave up one run and three hits in six innings, striking out eight. He also singled for his first hit in the majors. Font gets 1st win, Adames homers, Rays beat Yankees 4-0 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Wilmer Font worked into the sixth inning to get his first major league win, Willy Adames homered and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the New York Yankees 4-0 Saturday. Font (1-3) allowed three hits, one walk and struck out four over 5 2/3 innings. Four relievers completed a four-hitter. Adames had an RBI single during a tworun second and added a solo homer in the seventh off Sonny Gray (5-5). The Rays have won the first two of a three-game series against the Yankees, who have the best record in the majors. New York (50-24), coming off a threegame sweep over Seattle, is the only team in the big leagues not to have dropped more than two straight games this year. This is the latest the Yankees have gone into a season without losing three in a row since August 1954. After Jake Bauers had a first-inning RBI double, Tampa Bay took a 3-0 lead in the second when Daniel Robertson hit a run-scoring double and scored on Adames single. Associated PressOMAHA, Neb. Arkansas coach Dave Van Horn had a simple message for his Razorbacks before they played Florida for a spot in the College World Series finals Friday night. I dont care if they have the best player in the SEC and the best pitcher in the SEC, we have to take it to them tonight, Van Horn said he told them. Isaiah Campbell, a 24th-round draft pick who got rocked by Florida three months ago, won his matchup against Southeastern Conference pitcher of the year and first-rounder Brady Singer in convincing fashion. Arkansas freshman third baseman Casey Martin went 4 for 5 and scored three times. His counterpart at third, SEC player of the year and No. 5 overall draft pick Jonathan India, was 0 for 4. The Razorbacks took it to them, just like Van Horn wanted, and earned their way into the best-of-three finals next week with a 5-2 win over the defending national champion Gators. Arkansas (47-19) has never gone to the CWS finals since the NCAA Tournament went to its current structure in 1999. The Razorbacks were runners-up in 1979 in their only appearance in a championship game. Florida (49-21), the No. 1 overall seed, lost for the first time in eight NCAA elimination games. The Gators were looking to get to the finals for the second straight year and fourth time since 2005. Martin, who grew up three hours from Fayetteville in Lonoke, population 4,200, grew up watching the Razorbacks and choked up when discussing what it meant to be in the finals. Honestly, I never thought Id be here, he said. I dreamed about it my whole life. Dreamed to play for this team. Dreamed to start my freshman year. Im just super excited to play for these guys. Some careers end here and some dont. I just want to do what I can for each of them. The run to the championship round might not have happened Friday if it hadnt been for Campbell (5-6). The sophomore limited Florida to two hits over 5 1/3 innings, more than atoning for his worst performance of the season when he faced the Gators in the teams SEC opening series in March. In that game, he lasted only an inning and allowed six runs in a game the Razorbacks lost 17-2.Arkansas off to CWS finals, tops Florida 5-2 Russian forward Ilya Kovalchuk returns to NHL with LA KingsNCAA NHLAssociated PressAfter five years back home in Russia, Ilya Kovalchuk is ready to resume his Stanley Cup chase with the Los Angeles Kings. The high-scoring forward agreed to a threeyear, $18.75 million deal with the Kings on Saturday, choosing Los Angeles over several interested teams for his return to the NHL. The 35-year-old Kovalchuk scored 816 points in 816 career games for the Atlanta Thrashers and the New Jersey Devils before leaving North America in 2013 for the Kontinental Hockey Leagues SKA St. Petersburg. He led the KHL in scoring last season, and he was the MVP of the Olympic tournament in Pyeongchang while propelling the Olympic Athletes from Russia to a gold medal. He gives us an added element of skill and scoring, along with a desire to win, Kings general manager Rob Blake said. Boston and San Jose were among the suitors for Kovalchuk, but the Kings made a top-dollar offer to add him to a lineup that could use another dependable goal-scorer. Kovalchuk is likely to be particularly important on the power play for the Kings, who ranked in the middle of the NHL standings in most team scoring categories. Kovalchuk was the first Russian to be the No. 1 pick in the NHL draft when Atlanta chose him in 2001. He quickly became one of the NHLs most consistent scorers with his wicked shot and hockey sense. He spent nearly eight years with the Thrashers and 3 seasons with the Devils, who acquired him in a trade in February 2010. Kovalchuk will forever be the top scorer in the history of the Thrashers, who moved to Winnipeg one season after trading him to New Jersey. He shared the Rocket Richard Trophy in 2004. Canes get Hamilton in blockbuster trade with Calgary FlamesCOURTESYDefenseman Dougie Hamilton heads to Carolina. Associated PressDALLAS The Carolina Hurricanes acquired defenseman Dougie Hamilton on Saturday as part of a blockbuster trade with the Calgary Flames at the NHL draft. Carolina got Hamilton, winger Micheal Ferland and prospect Adam Fox from Calgary for center Elias Lindholm and defenseman Noah Hanifin in the biggest trade so far this offseason. The 25-year-old Hamilton has now been traded at the draft twice after going from the Bruins to the Flames three years ago. The 6-foot6 right-shot defender has 220 points in 423 regular-season games. Dealing pending restricted free agents Lindholm and Hanifin is the latest shakeup for Carolina since Tom Dundon bought the team from Peter Karmanos Jr. earlier this year. Theyve already removed Ron Francis as general manager, replaced him with Don Waddell and promoted assistant Rod BrindAmour to head coach. This trade changes BrindAmours mix as Carolina looks to end the leagues longest playoff drought, which currently stands at nine seasons. Ferland gives the Hurricanes a big winger who can produce after putting up a career-high 78 points last season with Calgary.Newgarden takes pole at Road America, Penske claims 1st rowAUTO RACINGBy GENARO ARAMSAssociated PressELKHART LAKE, Wis. Josef Newgarden has a pole to go with the new garden that fans planted in his honor at Road America. The defending IndyCar series champion led a Team Penske sweep up front for the 222-mile race Sunday. Newgarden turned a lap time in 1 minute, 43.20 seconds for his fifth career pole and second straight after taking pole position two weeks ago at Texas. At Road America, Newgarden also gets a vegetable garden Someone set up my own garden, too, he said Saturday after qualifying. It shows you the kind of you support you have around here. He edged teammate Will Power by 0.05 seconds. That was close. We were off the whole time. I gave it everything the last lap a surprise front row, Power said. Andretti Autosport driv ers locked down the sec ond row for the road-course race Sunday, with Ryan Hunter-Reay starting third and Alexander Rossi taking fourth. Just came up a little short there. All of a sudden, Josef and Will popped out of nowhere, Hunter-Reay said. Rookie Robert Wickens will start fifth, with Sebastien Bourdais starting sixth. Wickens and Newgarden recorded the top two laps over the three practice sessions at Road America. Newgardens momentum carried over into qualifying. Maybe Road America will give him a spark after dropping to fifth in the points standings following a fiverace stretch finishing no higher than eighth. We were on the pole last week in Texas too. Qualifying for us doesnt really guarantee anything in this series, Newgarden said. Weve got speed, he added. Weve just got to make sure we execute on race day. Points leader Scott Dixon will start eighth, his lowest starting position since qualifying ninth for the Indy 500 last month. But Dixon, a four-time series champion, is a threat no matter where hes stationed on the starting grid. I think even if Scott started 23rd hed still be in the front at the end, Rossi said. B2
S UNDAY, JUNE 24, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER 3B OUTDOORSSummer Scallop Season Has Started COURTESY PHOTOSABOVE: Kaypers Show, 13, from Mayo, Florida displays one of the many scallops he caught. LEFT: This diver-down flag mounted on a buoy is an essential safety item. By MONTY STEPHENSSpecial to the ReporterScallop season kicked off big time in Dixie and parts of Taylor counties last weekend. On opening day, June 16, at the Rocky Creek boat ramp, I counted 57 boat trailers and two very large motor homes. That is extremely busy for this boat ramp. Normally, I would see just six or seven boat trailers. There was no wait in getting the boat in the water though and everyone did a great job in creating parking rows. A glance at a few license plates saw many folks were from out-of-state and central Florida. Scallop season is a great way to get families out on the water. The scallops are great eating and easy to catch. This sport is usually done in shallow water (4 ft. or less.) For equipment, all that is needed is a mask/snorkel and a mesh bag to put your catch in. Once you get a bagful of scallops, throw them in an ice chest. After a few hours of chilling, they will open enough to make cleaning easy. Discard all of the scallop innards except the muscle that holds the shell together. Each scallop will yield a small portion of meat that is about the size of the tip of your little finger from the nailbed up. So it takes a lot of them to get a meals worth. The limit is two gallons per person of whole scallops (in-shell) or 10 gallons (whole) per boat. Many people I spoke with had caught their limits. The FWC has split Floridas gulf counties into four sections with four different dates for the season opener. Dixie County and Taylor County south of the Fenholloway River opened June 16, was the first area to open. To check opening dates of other areas, go to: http://myfwc.com/fishing/ saltwater/recreational/bay-scallops/. Scallop season is a big money maker for the marinas, fishing camps, motels and guides in Steinhatchee. Getting a motel room in Steinhatchee right now would be very challenging. Diving for scallops is fun, but it must be done safely. To alert other boats that divers are in the water, all boats with divers must have a diver-down flag. This is the red flag with a diagonal white strip running through it. This flag signals other boats that someone is diving. Using a snorkel, turns a swimmer into a diver. By regulations, the flag must be at least 20 x 24. It must be mounted on the highest point of the boat. This is so it can been seen by approaching vessels from any direction. As an alternative, divers can use a floating buoy in the water with a 12 x 12 flag. The flags must also have a wire stiffener or other brace to keep the flag open. This is to ensure the flag doesnt just drape itself on its pole should there be no wind. Diving without a divers-down flag is a misdemeanor. So if you are ticketed for this offense, an appearance in court is mandatory. On the flats, boats are advised to stay at least 300 ft. from a divers-down flag. A diver using a snorkel offers very little visually of their presence. All a boat operator may see of a diver for scallops is a 10 snorkel tube above the water. Please steer well clear of boats with divers swimming for scallops. Conversely, divers are required to stay within 300 ft. of their boat or buoy for safety reasons also. This is a fun sport for kids and adults alike. Whatever boat you have will work. I even saw several kayaks. So make plans to get out and the water and above all, stay safe. Good fishing. FWC approves new course requirements for airboat operators From staff reportsAt its June 19-20 meeting in Sarasota, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) approved new course requirements for airboat operators carrying passengers for hire. A tragic airboat accident in south Florida was the impetus behind House Bill 1211, known as Ellies Law, requiring all airboat operators carrying passengers for hire to complete an Airboat Operators Course. FWC staff worked with the airboat education industry and stakeholders to gather public input and develop the rule, which details minimum course requirements for instructor qualifications, student requirements, airboat operators course requirements, basic course topics, proof of completion and refresher course requirements. The rule is supported by the airboat education industry, stakeholders and the public as indicated from three public meetings and meetings with the Florida Airboat Association. Public safety is important to the FWC, and with the Legislatures guidance, this new rule provides additional requirements for airboat operator courses which will improve safety measures for passengers aboard an airboat for hire, said Commission Chairman Bo Rivard. Implementation of the new rule will go into effect by July 1, 2019. John Little named Hunter Safety Instructor of the YearJohn Little is now in the running and representing Florida for the national title International Hunter Education Associations Instructor of the Year. From staff reportsThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) named John Little of Palm Bay the 2017 Volunteer Hunter Safety Instructor of the Year at its June Commission meeting in Sarasota. The award recognizes a volunteer who significantly advances the cause of safe hunting through extraordinary service in training and education. Little has been volunteering to teach the states hunter safety course since 2003. He received Area Coordinator of the Year in 2016, in his home county of Brevard. During 2017, Little scheduled 14 classes and certified 116 students. John does a great job of cross-training the members of his teaching team and combines traditional and skills day classes, offering students a choice, said Will Burnett, FWCs northeast regional hunter safety coordinator. Students walk away from Johns class with a new respect and appreciation for safe firearms handling and ethical hunting. In addition to teaching the FWCs hunter safety course, Little is a nationally-certified instructor, youth-group counselor, and teaches basic firearms handling and safety at a local gun club. B3

Weve received a lot of praise, we the team, and weve tried to remain focused. Son Heung-min scored a consolation goal for South Korea in injury time, sending a powerful shot past goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa. The South Koreans, who have lost their opening two matches, kept Ochoa under pressure throughout the match with Son often out-sprinting the Mexican defense. I think our players had a game they will not regret, South Korea coach Shin Tae-yong. All of the players became one, and they did their utmost until the very last minute. Mexico relied on keeping possession and long-range shots, with a powerful attempt from Guardado forcing an athletic save from Jo in the second half. A volley from Vela skimmed the bar minutes later. Mexican fans avoided using a chant, which is considered to be homophobic by FIFA, against the opposing goalkeeper. The chant earned the countrys soccer federation a fine after the previous match. GROUP DYNAMICS Mexico will face Sweden on Wednesday in Yekaterinburg with a chance to win Group F, a prospect that could set up a match against Brazil in the round of 16. South Korea will face Germany at the same time in Kazan. HISTORY Mexico has reached the round of 16 in six straight World Cups, but the team has not advanced to the quarterfinals since playing at home in 1986. Winning the group with three straight victories will be a good sign, but getting past the next round is the ultimate goal. IN THE CROWD South Korean President Moon Jae-in, in Russia on an official visit, attended the match at Rostov Arena.COURTESYMexican fans avoided using a chant, which is considered to be homophobic by FIFA, against the opposing goalkeeper. MEXICOContinued From 1B By MARIA DANILOVAAssociated PressMOSCOW Wrapped in national flags, jubilant fans dance at midnight in the streets of Moscow, smiling, laughing and cheering. While foreign spectators from all over the world are having a blast at the World Cup being hosted by Russia, human rights activists are urging them not to overlook the other side of Vladimir Putins nation: political prisoners and the harassment of critical voices. Friday marked the 40th day that Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov has been refusing food in a Russian prison. Sentsov, an outspoken opponent of Russias 2014 annexation of Crimea from Ukraine, was sentenced in 2015 to 20 years for conspiracy to commit terror acts. He calls the case against him politically motivated and went on a hunger strike in mid-May to demand his release, as well as that of other Ukrainians held by Russia. Western nations have been calling for Sentsovs release. Sentsovs lawyer, Dmitry Dinze, visited him in a prison clinic Friday and said his client has lost about 20 kilograms (44 pounds) and was very frail. His condition is bad. He is very weak, very pale, Dinze told The Associated Press by telephone. Dinze said Sentsov is able to walk, but talking is difficult and he has kidney and heart problems. Sentsov is receiving vitamins and other nutrients through an intravenous line and is refusing to be force-fed. He has stated his position firmly. Nobody will be able to talk him out of it, he will continue until his demands are met, Dinze said. Russian officials have been saying Sentsov is in satisfactory condition and his health has not suffered. This is a double picture of a very bright, very sparkling celebration, but on the other hand, there is an entire abyss of despair, said Tanya Lokshina, the Russia program director at Human Rights Watch. It is very important that today those who watch Russia, film Russia, write about Russia see not only this celebration, beautiful by itself, which will come and go, understand even a little bit what todays Russia is in terms of human rights and basic freedoms. Ukrainian rights activist Maria Tomak was among about a dozen people who staged a rally Friday outside the Russian consulate in Kiev, urging Putin to exchange Sentsov and other Ukrainians jailed in Russia for Russians detained in Ukraine. The situation around Oleg Sentsov is a threat to everyone, Tomak said. If there is some kind of fatal incident with Oleg in Russia during the World Cup, this will look awful, this will lead to (Russias) isolation. On the opening day of the World Cup, Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny walked out of a Moscow jail after 30 days behind bars on charges of organizing an authorized rally and resisting police. Two days later, Navalnys press secretary was released after a 25-day stint in prison. In the Chechen capital of Grozny, where Egypts national team set up its base, Chechen strongman Ramzan Kadyrov was posing for photos with the Egypt star soccer forward Mohamed Salah. All the while, across town, the regions top human rights activist Oyub Titiev was in a prison on drug charges that he calls fabricated. International human rights organizations have dismissed the charges against Titiev as fake and have called on FIFA to intervene and seek his release. Beyond soccer, movie theaters across Russia are playing Summer, a romantic period drama about the budding rock scene in the waning years of the Soviet Union that received a standing ovation at the Cannes Film festival in May. But its director, Kirill Serebrennikov, is under house arrest on embezzlement charges, which he denies. The case is viewed by many in Russia as punishment for Serebrennikovs iconoclastic views and has raised fears of a return to Soviet-style censorship. Before hosting the Sochi Winter Olympics in 2014, Russia freed its most prominent prisoners, the oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky and two women from the Pussy Riot punk band. Lokshina called for the same for Sentsov, Titiev and others. If this doesnt happen, the legacy of the World Cup will be clouded by these awful, horrible cases, Lokshina said. Independent political analyst Masha Lipman welcomed the festive and positive atmosphere of the World Cup, given that relations between Russia and the West had sunk to their lowest point in recent history. Lipman said that Western leaders have already made their position clear by not attending World Cup games but she says regular fans who have spent a lot of money and effort to come to come to Russia should focus on soccer and enjoy their stay. Do you think it would be better if everybody was walking around somber and angry, for tourists and fans to come here and to be looking for what else would upset them? Of course it is better when there is a friendly attitude toward the country, Lipman said. At least for a change.Beyond World Cup: Advocates call attention to Russian abusesWORLD CUP COURTESYOleg Sentsov gestures as the verdict is delivered, as he stands behind bars at a court in Rostov-on-Don, Russia. A state news agency is quoting a Russian human rights official as saying that jailed Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov is in satisfac tory condition despite a month-long hunger strike. COURTESYSwitzerlands Granit Xhaka celebrates after scoring his sides first goal during the group E match between Switzerland and Serbia at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Kaliningrad Stadium. an early goal and we have the chances then its going to be difficult until the end. It was, but now of course were happy because I think we also deserved the victory. Coming off an opening loss to Mexico, Germany fell behind again when Kroos early mistake led to Ola Toivonens goal in the 32nd minute. Reus equalized in the 48th. A point for a draw would have been enough to stay alive for the knockout stage, but the Germans would have needed help on the final day. Now Germany has some control of what happens. Mexico leads Group F with six points, and Germany and Sweden both have three. Mexico faces Sweden and Germany takes on winless South Korea in the final group matches. Of course this was a thriller, full of emotions and a rollercoaster ride right up until the final whistle, Germany coach Joachim Loew said. Crazy as it seems, all four teams still have a chance to advance on the final day. Theres nothing strange to get ready for that match, Sweden coach Janne Andersson said. We still have an excellent opportunity to qualify. For 90-plus minutes, Germany looked as if it would enter the final match facing the same possible fate as Spain and Italy and potentially become the third straight defending champion to fail to reach the knockout stage. They played the final 10 minutes without Boateng. Toivonen gave Sweden the lead, but Germany controlled every aspect by playing aggressive and attacking soccer. Germany forced Sweden to play defensively for almost the entire second half and eventually the attack paid off. This is probably heaviest conclusion that Ive experienced in my career, Andersson said. AFTER THE WHISTLE Swedens bench took issue with the way some Germany staff members celebrated after the final whistle. There was a confrontation between members of both teams on the sideline at midfield and the two groups had to be separated. Loew said he didnt see any gestures or aggressive gestures directed at the Swedes. Andersson said he was annoyed by what he saw from the German celebration. People behaved in ways that you dont do, Andersson said. Serbians angrier at World Cup ref than at nationalist gesturesAssociated PressKALININGRAD, Russia Serbs appeared angrier Saturday at the referee who officiated their countrys 2-1 World Cup defeat than at two Swiss players who provocatively flashed Albanian nationalist gestures after scoring. Years of simmering Balkan tensions surfaced at the World Cup on Friday night as Switzerland beat Serbia in Kaliningrad. The two Swiss goals came from ethnic Albanians Xherdan Shaqiri and Granit Xhaka, both of whom celebrated with a hand signal of the double-headed eagle on the Albanian flag. The Swiss Provocation, wrote Serb nationalist daily newspaper Vecernje Novosti alongside photographs of the gestures and a picture of Shaqiris boots, which have the Kosovo flag on one heel and the Swiss flag on the other. FIFAs disciplinary committee opened proceedings against the two for the politically charged goal celebrations. FIFA also said Saturday it has opened disciplinary proceedings against the Serbian Football Association for crowd disturbance and the display of political and offensive messages by Serbian fans. FIFA also is reviewing statements that Serbia coach Mladen Krstajic made after the match. The families of both goal scorers hail from Kosovo the former Serb province whose 2008 declaration of independence is not recognized by Serbia and remains a source of friction between the Balkan neighbors. Thousands of Kosovo Albanians trekked across Europe in the 1990s, fleeing rising ethnic tensions that culminated in a bloody 1998-99 war of independence between ethnic Albanians and Serb forces that left about 10,000 people dead. Many settled in Switzerland, but still have strong feelings for their homeland Xhakas brother plays for the Albanian national team. Serbian football officials complained to FIFA, soccers governing body, about the gestures, but appeared far angrier about the failure of German referee Felix Brych to use a video review when two Swiss defenders manhandled Serbia striker Aleksandar Mitrovic to the ground in the second half. Brych ignored Serbian players penalty appeals. FIFA had no comment Saturday about the video decision. GERMANYContinued From 1B B4

6B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, JUNE 24, 2018 Sports Department 754-0420Thunders Anthony to opt in, take $28 millionNBABy CLIFF BRUNT Associated PressOKLAHOMA CITY Oklahoma City Thunder forward Carmelo Anthony plans to opt in and take the $28 million he is due next season. The New York Times first reported the 34-yearold Anthonys decision to bypass the chance to become a free agent. A person with knowledge of details confirmed Anthonys choice to The Associated Press on Friday night. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the situation publicly. The Thunder traded for Anthony and Paul George to join Russell Westbrook before last season, moves that gave them high hopes of challenging Golden State in the West. It didnt work out as planned. The 34-year-old Anthony had been the headliner his entire career hes 19th in NBA history with 25,417 points but he was more of a catch-and-shoot scorer last season instead of the isolation specialist he had always been. He averaged 16.2 points per game, but struggled at times in his new role. His playing time dwindled in the playoffs and he wasnt happy. In Game 6 of the first-round playoff series against Utah that ended Oklahoma Citys season, he played fewer minutes than backup Jerami Grant. It wasnt entirely clear if Anthony would opt in. After the season, he said he prefers to play with the ball in his hands more and said coming off the bench is out of the question. So its something I really have to think about, if I really want to be this type of player, finish out my career as this type of player, knowing that I have so much left in the tank and I bring so much to the game of basketball, he said. Despite his confidence, the 10-time All-Star posted career lows in scoring average and field goal percentage last season. Thunder general manager Sam Presti said at the end of the season that he doesnt expect Anthonys role to change. I give him an enormous amount of credit for the fact that he put both feet in, Presti said. I personally think he did an excellent job in his first year transitioning his game, work ing to becoming more of an off-the-ballplayer, being more reliant on other people to generate his offense, and sacrificing a lot. At the same time, I think every player is entitled to take a step back after the season, reflect on the year they had, and in his case have to make a determination about whether or not this is a role that he wants to continue to be functioning in.

We were so evenly matched, with five (district) teams that were 6-6, so really anybody in that district couldve won it Everybody was so evenly matched, a lot of good teams got knocked out in the first round. I believe we had what it takes to win that district championship. It just didnt come together at the right time. Not all cylinders were clicking in that last game. Shelnut is back this summer playing for his travel club, Gatorball. He recently competed in the Perfect Game National Championship showcase near Atlanta this past weekend. Shelnut plans to give his arm a rest for the remainder of summer league while polishing his skills at the plate and infield. The Fort White star hopes playing year-round will continue to pay off in the long run of his baseball career. Professional teams will start to take a peek at him, Julius added. With his size and improvement, hell (see) wither they think he needs to go to play college ball or if he might be ready for pro ball. In the meantime, Shelnut says hes focused on improving and winning ballgames. After falling short of a district title in his first two high school seasons, the UF commit will return to fall ball season set on bringing the hardware back to Fort White. Shelnut remains confident that the Indians can accomplish their longtime goal before he hangs up his high school cleats. If nothing more, hopefully we can help the other guys get better and help them do something they want. Maybe a personal goal for them, not just for me, Id like help them get better as players and as people. So we can go out into our lives and careers maybe learn something they can carry on from playing baseball at Fort White.

Medina left his community close to two decades ago set on achieving his life goals. As life would have it, his career trail brought him back home, where he now treasures the opportunity to help promote growth and success and exhibit his commitment and love for the community on a daily basis. Medina is the senior executive vice president and chief banking officer at First Federal Bank of Florida. He celebrated his first anniversary with First Federal Bank of Florida last week. Medina started his banking career right out of college with an undergraduate degree from Florida State University and a graduate degree from the University of Florida. After working with First Union Wachovia for about 18 years, he retired from the banking industry and later got into consulting. His career changed when he was offered the position at First Federal Bank of Florida and a chance to make a difference in the community where he grew up. This opportunity came up to join, basically, the hometown bank, Medina said, describing it as one of the more unique opportunities in his life. Ive been in banking most of my career. Both of his parents and his wife are from Live Oak and Medina had other roots in the community such as attending Florida Gateway College when it was known as Lake City Community College. Medina is proud to have the opportunity to work in his hometown bank. For me its a calling, he said. For me its not a job, its an opportunity to help others and with the community on a high-performing team. First Federal Bank of Florida was established 55 years ago and has been a staple in the local banking community. Medina said he likes working with Keith Liebfried, First Federal Bank of Florida Chief Executive Officer, who has been with the bank for 45 years. Its an organization thats the only mutual in Florida, Medina said. It basically started in my hometown and to work with people like Keith and others is a rare opportunity in my life, so when you combine that with being close to your parents, and your roots, its a unique opportunity. Medina, 54, said he never imagined he would have an opportunity to come back home and work in the area where he grew up. He and his family had lived in the Tallahassee area for about 20 years. We really werent looking to move, he said. It was just a combination of this opportunity and being there for our parents. Im basically looking at this as being the last stop on whats been a very good career. We prayed about it. Talked about it and we think were exactly where we are supposed to be. Medina is a graduate of the Suwannee High Class of 1982 and he relishes working with and seeing friends he grew up with. Although there have been several changes to the banking industry through federal regulations, First Federal Bank of Florida has remained one of the leading local financial institutions in helping grow the community. Weve done that over the 55 years that weve been here, Medina said. Its just not the financial contributions that weve made, which I cant imagine over a 55-year period the amount weve contributed to the community we serve and continue to do so everyday. He said the bank has programs where it matches the employees contributions to non profit organizations, as well as a foundation that makes contributions to the community. More importantly than that is the opportunity that we create for our employees to serve within the communities that they live in, by providing time that they can volunteer and encouraging folks to take leadership roles, he said. Medina leads by example on that goal and he was recently installed as the district governor of Rotary District 6940. Whether its little league, boy scouts, or high school sports or church-related activities, our employees are very much involved in the communities we serve, he said. First Federal Bank of Florida had about 380 employees before recently acquiring another bank and now they have more than 800 employees in several states. That culture of giving back to the community is now being perpetuated throughout the entire country, he said. Its one of our culture components giving back to the community.

Sounds perfect doesnt it?!Come see us there are lots in stock! SUMMER FLOWER POWERStop living off those precious metalsDear Dave, I make about $240,000 annually, and I will be maxing out my 401(k) contributions this year. I have $60,000 in student loan debt Im trying to pay off, a small amount left on my home mortgage, plus Ive been investing in a lot of gold and silver. Those investments are worth about $30,000 right now. In addition to this, Ive got $10,000 in cash just sitting in a savings account for emergencies. Should I stop the gold and silver investing, and focus on paying off the loans, or keep splitting my money between them? Adam Dear Adam, Id stop investing in gold and silver completely. I dont put money in precious metals at all, because they have a lousy longterm track record. My advice would be to cash out every bit of your gold and silver, and put the money toward paying off your student loans. That would instantly cut your student loan debt in half. Then, with your salary, you should be able to pay off the rest in just a few months. The key will be to start living on a very strict budget. Dont spend on anything thats not absolutely necessary. I also want you to temporarily stop contributing to your 401(k). Do this just until you get the student loan debt wiped out, then pick it up again like before. If you want to put even more toward retirement, you could check with a quality investment professional one with the heart of a teacher to see if youre eligible for a back-door Roth IRA. When its all said and done, Adam, I want you to have 15 percent of your yearly income going toward retirement. You already know the value of saving and investing. With your income, once you knock out your debt and begin investing again, you have the very real potential to become a millionaire in just a few years!

Dave RamseyCEO of Ramsey SolutionsDAVE SAYS Education Commissioner Stewart honors Florida businessesFrom a press releaseToday, Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart honored nearly 50 Florida businesses from around the state with the Commissioners Business Recognition Award. The award recognizes businesses for their extraordinary contributions to public education in Florida. I am pleased to present these businesses with the Commissioners Business Recognition Award in appreciation of their ongoing commitment to Floridas students, said Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart. Strong partnerships between the education and business communities are essential to student success, and I hope more businesses will take advantage of this mutually-beneficial opportunity. During the awards ceremony, Commissioner Stewart highlighted a few of the initiatives that businesses are embarking on to help Floridas students: The Anderson Columbia Company in Dixie County not only provided job opportunities and scholarships to seniors graduating from Dixie County High School, they donated land for the new Old Town Elementary School. In Duval County, VyStar Credit Union established branches in five area high schools which are managed, operated and utilized by students, providing career development opportunities and teaching them the importance of financial literacy. In Orange County, McCoy Federal Credit Union contributed backpacks for every student at Lancaster Elementary School, and donated gifts for each member of 120 homeless families. Quantum Electrical Contractors in Flagler County established the A Hand Up scholarship program to help students from low income families attend college. In Suwannee County, Pilgrims co-sponsored the Early Learning Matters program that fosters a community-wide awareness of the importance of learning and literacy among young children. To view a list of awarded businesses and organizations, visit Commissioners Business Recognition Awards. The Commissioners Business Recognition Awards are administered by the Florida Department of Education and the Florida Education Foundation to encourage successful alliances within the business community and among local school districts for the benefit of Floridas students. About the Florida Education Foundation As a valued partner to public education, the Florida Education Foundations mission is to invest in high achievement for every student to contribute to Floridas globally competitive workforce.

Interested Parties *Lake City Reporter *Mayo Free Press *Union County Times *Suwannee Democrat *Jasper News By Linda RobertsonMiami HeraldMIAMI South Florida has been saddled with the Paradise Lost label since that unflattering Time magazine cover in 1981. Now, another qualityof-life list asserts that things are still bad down here at the bottom of the Sunshine State. Three Miami-Dade County cities Miami, Miami Beach and Homestead rank among the 50 Worst Places to Live in the U.S. The study by 24/7 Wall Street, a financial news and commentary website, created an index with measurements in eight categories: Crime, economy, education, environment, health, housing, infrastructure and leisure. Miami placed 42nd, Miami Beach, 25th, and Homestead, 14th. Among other Florida cities, Tallahassee was 38th, Gainesville 48th and Daytona Beach 23rd, mostly due to their high poverty and low median income rates. But take heart, Miami. The city was rated least livable in 2016. In 2012, Forbes rated Miami the nations Most Miserable City. In 2014, WalletHub said Miami was a horrible place to raise a family. Miami was rated among the very worst cities in which to grow old in a recent MagnifyMoney study. A Washington Post analysis showed Miami is among the worst cities 45th out of 50 studied for its high rate of unsolved murders. Looking for a romantic city to spend Valentines Day? Miami and Hialeah would be among your worst choices, WalletHub said earlier this year, failing to mention why anyone would even consider Hialeah. So were used to being abused like a Tony Montana patsy too often deservedly so. Poor Detroit, which is working its way out of bankruptcy as nearly half its population has fled, has taken over the No. 1 spot as the worst place to live, followed by Flint, Mich., St. Louis, Memphis and Cleveland LeBron James favorite city at No. 5. California had seven cities on the list (Compton, Fresno, Florence-Graham, Merced, Oakland, San Bernardino, Stockton). Florida had six. Ohio had five (Canton, Cleveland, Dayton, Toledo, Youngstown). Miami, where 1 out of 4 people live in poverty, is one of the most expensive cities in the country, states the report. A typical Miami home is worth $277,700 compared to the median home value of $205,000 nationwide. The typical household in Miami earns $34,901 a year, far below the median income of $57,617 nationwide making it even more difficult to afford a mortgage or rising rents. Pay just hasnt kept pace with the escalating cost of living in a place where the income gap between rich and poor is among the biggest. Miami also ranked poorly on safety, with 879 violent crimes for every 100,000 people compared to the national rate of 386. In Miami Beach, where the poverty rate is 13.5 percent, the median home value is $479,400, about nine times the median household income of $53,685. In comparison, the typical home nationwide is worth just 3.6 times the median household income, said the report. A high crime rate of 1,023 violent incidents per 100,000 residents is almost triple the national average. But on the plus side, unlike most cities on this list, Miami Beachs population is well educated, the report said. More than 46 percent of adults in the city have a bachelors degree or higher compared to just 31.3 percent of American adults. Homestead was rated the least livable city in Florida. Average household income is just $32,001 with a median home value of $204,800, 1 out 3 residents live in poverty, and the percentage of residents with at least a bachelors degree is 17.2 percent. Most cities have high concentrations of bars, restaurants and cafes but Homestead is an exception, said the report, although Homestead has made progress on its plans to enliven downtown. The number of bars and restaurants for every 100,000 people is less than half the average concentration across the U.S. as a whole. The picture was bleak in all regions. In Flint, 44.5 percent of residents live below the poverty line and 9.8 percent are unemployed. Youngstown is the only U.S. city where more than half of all households earn less than $25,000 a year; the typical home is worth just $43,300. The population of Albany, Ga., declined by 4.8 percent over the past five years. In Hartford, average household income is $36,637, less than half the Connecticut average, and unemployment is at 9.4 percent. In San Bernardino, houses are expensive at $240,400, the crime rate is high and the poverty rate is twice the national average. In 17 of the 50 cities on this list, the typical home is worth less than $100,000, and only 12 cities have a higher median home value than the national median of $205,000, authors of the report wrote. In those cities with higher home values, home ownership may be prohibitively expensive as in most cases the median home value is more than five times the median income.

Well announce it in next weeks edition. of investing guides. Read Warren Buffetts educational letters to shareholders at berkshirehathaway.com. Hang out at the Fool online ( fool.com), reading and asking questions on our discussion boards. 3. Invest only in companies and industries you have studied and understand well. Weigh the risks that companies disclose in their financial statements. Consider a stocks valuation. Assess the market capitalization, expected future earnings and price-to-sales and price-to-earnings ratios for candidates for your portfolio. Stocks that seem undervalued should offer less downside risk than exciting high-flying stocks. 4. Avoid penny stocks (those costing less than about $5 per share), commodities, futures, day trading, shorting and investing on margin. Those can be risky ways of investing. 5. Consider not investing in any or many individual stocks and just opting for a low-fee S&P 500 index fund. Youll match the markets returns effortlessly. The stock market can be volatile, but over the long run, its one of the most effective ways to build wealth.Profitable RelationshipsTheres a fast-growing kind of software out there specializing in customer relationship management (CRM) and the dominant company in the business is salesforce. com (NYSE: CRM). Its systems help companies keep track of and manage their relationships and interactions with customers and potential customers and analyze that data, too. Shares of Salesforce have more than tripled in value over the past five years, and many analysts expect continued robust growth. Why? Well, the market for CRM software is expected to surge from a recent $72 billion to $123 billion by 2021. According to industry analyst IDC, Salesforce gained more market share than the rest of the 20 largest CRM suppliers combined in 2017. The companys market share gains are helping to produce tremendous increases in revenue and cash flow, with Salesforces revenue popping 25 percent over year-ago levels in the last quarter to $3 billion, along with a 25 percent gain in free cash flow, to $1.3 billion. Looking even further ahead, Salesforce is on pace to hit its goal of generating $21 billion to $23 billion in annual revenue by fiscal 2022. Catalysts for further growth include Salesforces incorporation of artificial intelligence in its offerings and its recent acquisition of MuleSoft, which will expand its cloud computing capabilities. Long-term investors seeking growth should take a closer look at Salesforce. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Salesforce.) rffBefore and AfterUgh. My dumbest investment was in an offshore drilling company that was recommended by a TV stock guru. I bought into the stock when the price of a barrel of oil was still in triple digits. I kept adding as the price of oil continued to crash hey! Ill end up with a lower cost basis! I lost a lot of money. Im keeping the shares as a reminder of how not to build up my portfolio. Ive learned a lot since that investment, as Ive spent a lot of time reading The Motley Fool. Before, my IRA was managed by my broker and invested in aggressive mutual funds. Now Im sticking with stock in high-quality companies. Before, I would buy more shares of sinking companies. Now I buy more shares of solidly performing companies even if their prices are going up. Before, Id panic when the stock market retreated. Now I get excited about sale prices. Before, my returns trailed the S&P 500. Now, Ive been outperforming it. C.B., Los Angeles The Fool Responds: It can be tempting to buy more shares of a falling stock, as it might seem like more of a bargain. But stocks often fall for good reasons. Always dig deeply into the situation before committing any more money. Make sure that any problems you discover seem to be temporary, not permanent, ones. Growth or Value?QShould I invest in growth stocks or value stocks which is better? G.G., Portland, OregonAYou dont have to choose one or the other some of the best stocks to invest in are both.Growth stocks are tied to companies that are increasing their revenue and earnings relatively rapidly, while value stocks are tied to companies with market values significantly below what they seem to really be worth. If you find a company thats growing at a solid clip and it seems to be undervalued, thats a very appealing proposition, offering a good chance of stock price appreciation. Its best, overall, though, to favor undervalued stocks. Even if they grow slowly, they offer a margin of safety by not being overpriced.***QAre secondary offerings and subsequent offerings the same thing? K.F., Muskegon, MichiganASubsequent offerings are often called secondary offerings, but the two events are different. When a company goes public, it issues stock in itself via an initial public offering (IPO) on the open market. Its common for insiders or large investors to keep sizable ownership stakes in the company, with only a portion of shares sold in the IPO. If these big investors later sell some of their shares to the public, thats a secondary offering, and the investors collect the sales proceeds, not the company. A subsequent (or follow-on) offering happens if the company wants or needs to raise more money later (perhaps to pay down debt, finance operations or buy another company). It will create and sell new shares, increasing the number of shares outstanding and diluting the value of existing shares. Thats not great for existing shareholders.Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.orgLower Your RiskIt can seem like investing in stocks is a crapshoot, as stocks can go up or down on any given day, but it doesnt have to be so risky. Here are some ways to reduce your risk. 1. Invest for the long haul. Shortterm investing is more like speculating or gambling. Being a shareholder means youre a part-owner in a company, so commit yourself to those businesses and aim to stay invested in them as long as they remain healthy and growing. With a long investing period, you can ride out the occasional market downturns that will likely occur. Dont worry about what happens this year if you dont plan to sell for many years. 2. Learn more. The savvier you become about investing, the fewer mistakes youll likely make. Dont buy stocks merely on tips from friends or strangers without even knowing what a company does.

Farm Bill passes the HouseFrom wire/staff reportsMembers of the U.S. House narrowly approved the 2018 Farm Bill that keeps many of the agriculture benefits in place, but would toughen work requirements for food stamp recipients. The bill passed 213211 Thursday afternoon in the House. According to multiple reports, the U.S. Senate is anticipat ed to have a vote on its own bill early next week, although the bill being taken to the Senate floor is a more bipartisan version of a 2018 Farm Bill it doesnt include cuts to nutrition programs, the main reason the bill had been held up. Neal Dunn (FL-02), who represents part of Columbia County, released the following statement in support of the passage of H.R. 2, the Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018, or the 2018 Farm Bill: Today is a great day for Florida farmers we just passed the 2018 Farm and Food Bill. This historic legislation will ensure that our farmers are protected for years to come. From improving crop insurance and preserving the farm safety net, to addressing unfair international trade practices and modernizing the food stamp program, we created a Farm and Food Bill that works for todays producers, said Dr. Dunn. Farmers, ranchers, and foresters across the Second District work hard and take risks every day to make our lives easier and provide us with the lowest grocery bills in the world they are the backbone of our economy. In North Florida, the threat of hurricanes and natural disasters loom and our producers often struggle year-to-year attempting to bounce back from devastating events. With this bill, our farmers now have some certainty during times of recession and loss; they know that the United States will continue to have a strong and robust agricultural economy. Bill highlights: *Reauthorizes the Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) options through 2023. *Strengthens the risk management programs and protects crop insurance. *Restores funding for vital tools for trade promotion and market development. *Streamlines and reduces regulatory burdens. *Improvements to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) that help food stamp recipients. Dr. Dunn worked to include the following in the Farm Bill: *Reduced burden on farmers who share ownership in a farm or ranch operation by providing equal access to risk management programs regardless of how the partnership is organized (e.g. family members who share ownership). *Continued robust funding for working forest programs, which promote sustainable forest management and strengthen communities that depend on forest products. *Maintained strong risk management programs for peanuts and cotton, which allow producers to replant and continue providing food and fiber to the nation after difficult seasons. *Adjusted the risk management tool for dairy, which allows producers to insure against low revenue versus costs, to increase participation and ensure the tool functions as it was intended. *Directed USDA to develop new crop insurance coverage options for high-value, under-insured crops such as fruits and vegetables, which will reduce exposure to crop losses in the aftermath of natural disasters.Lawsuit: Trump plan to expand Gulf drilling ignores impacts on wildlifeBy Jenny StaletovichMiami HeraldA handful of environmental groups sued the Trump administration Thursday for failing to protect whales, sea turtles and other marine life in the Gulf of Mexico even as it pushes to expand drilling amid safety cutbacks. In a lawsuit filed in federal court in Tampa, Earthjustice claimed the administration has yet to complete a long overdue study of hazards to wildlife from drilling following the 2010 explosion of BPs Deepwater Horizon oil rig. The explosion, which left 11 workers dead, dumped at least 3 million barrels of oil into the Gulf, killing baby dolphins, causing heart problems in mahi mahi and leaving a trail of damage to marine life, from plankton to shrimp to oysters, that scientists are still trying to understand. Youve got whales and sea turtles that not only have to contend with the everyday operations of drilling, but they have to rebuild their populations, said Earthjustice attorney Chris Eaton. Following the spill, the Obama administration agreed to take another look at impacts from drilling. When it failed to complete a study by 2013, environmentalists sued. Wildlife officials agreed to complete it by 2015. It was never done. A new assessment is even more critical now following Trumps move to undo Obama drilling bans and aggressively expand efforts, Eaton said. Earlier this year, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke announced plans to quadruple drilling in U.S. water, including Floridas Atlantic coast and in the eastern Gulf, where drilling was banned in 1988. Zinke quickly withdrew the plan after meeting with Florida Gov. Rick Scott in what critics called an election-year stunt. The lawsuit, filed on behalf of the Center for Biological Diversity, the Sierra Club and the Gulf Restoration Network, asks the court to order the National Marine Fisheries Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to complete a new study in three months. The study would likely lead to new protections for endangered species given the breadth of the 2010 spill, Earthjustice said. They opened up unleased acreage in the Gulf. They have reduced royalty rates in shallow water to entice companies to drill there. Theyre rolling back safety regulations, Eaton said. Theyre doing all they can to make it a lot more appealing for the gas companies to drill in the Gulf ... and thats a bigger threat to the species.

The program is limited to 44 northern Florida counties, the known range of the southern pine beetle. The southern pine beetle is one of the most economically devastating forest pests of the southeast, with periodic outbreaks leading to deaths of millions of pine trees. In 2017, 260 SPB infestations were reported in Florida, killing trees on 1,768 acres. This pales in comparison to the last major outbreaks between 1999 and 2002, which caused an estimated $59 million in timber losses. Since it was first offered in 2005, the program has been implemented on more than 183,000 acres and helped thousands of landowners. These small infestations average less than an acre now, but they have the ability to expand rapidly this time of year, said Jim Karels, State Forester and Director of the Florida Forest Service. Its imperative that we remain vigilant to keep this invasive pest at bay. The Southern Pine Beetle Assistance and Prevention Program, supported through a grant by the United States Forest Service, provides incentive payments for landowners who conduct a first pulpwood thinning and offers partial cost reimbursement for activities, such as prescribed burning, mechanical underbrush treatments, and the planting of longleaf or slash pine rather than the loblolly pine, the beetles preferred species. Qualified landowners can apply for up to two different practices per year, and funding requests may not exceed $10,000. All qualifying applications received during the submission period will be evaluated and ranked for approval. To obtain an applica tion or to learn more about the Southern Pine Beetle Assistance and Prevention Program, visit FreshFromFlorida.com/ SouthernPineBeetle/ Prevention. The Florida Forest Service, a division of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, manages more than 1 million acres of state forests and provides forest management assistance on more than 17 million acres of private and community forests. The Florida Forest Service is also responsible for protecting homes, forestland and natural resources from the devastating effects of wildfire on more than 26 million acres.

One of millions without a bank account for a dayBy James Rufus KorenLos Angeles TimesLOS ANGELES Two and a half miles of walking, two failed attempts to cash a $15 check, one toy left behind at a checkout counter and $14 in fees for financial transactions that ordinarily wouldnt cost me a dime. That was my tally after a recent, frustrating morning in Hollywood spent standing in lines, filling out forms and wondering if Id have enough money or time to get it all done. The exercise wasnt for fun. Rather, I was participating in a sort of financial scavenger hunt that aims to replicate how life works for the millions of Americans about a quarter of all households who either dont have bank accounts or still rely on storefront check cashers, payday lenders and prepaid debit cards to manage their money. The event, called FinX as in financial experience was held this month during an annual conference organized by the Center for Financial Services Innovation and attended by executives from banks, credit unions and financial technology firms, as well as consumer advocates and even federal regulators. The nonprofit think tank, backed by charitable foundations and major banks, advocates for better financial products, especially for Americans on the fringes of the financial system. It hopes the exercise can teach just how expensive and time-consuming it can be to manage money for consumers who are known as the unbanked or underbanked. The basic idea is, for as long as weve been doing this and as dismal as the facts about American financial health are, we still talk to people who really dont get it, said Jennifer Tescher, founder and chief executive of CFSI. Everyone walks away with the same reaction: that this is intensely frustrating, its more expensive than it should be and they cant believe millions of Americans have to deal with this. About 27 percent of U.S. households are either unbanked or underbanked, according to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Despite economic growth and the proliferation of online services that have made it easier than ever to open and access bank accounts, those figures have remained little changed since the FDIC started tracking them in 2009. Whats more, those households which are more likely to be poor, less-educated, young, black or Latino pay a lot for their financial services. CFSI estimated Americans spend more than $100 billion every year for products or services such as payday loans and check cashing, as well as overdraft fees, effectively a penalty for being short on cash. On June 6, other participants and I gathered in a conference room at the Loews Hollywood Hotel at the Hollywood & Highland shopping center and were put in groups of three or four. Each team was assigned a different L.A. neighborhood and asked to complete several transactions, including cashing a few checks, getting a debit card, asking about a loan and buying a small gift. There was an extra catch: It all had to be done in about two hours, a time limit many of us thought was generous given our own experiences with financial products. I was teamed up with Ray Chay, director of operations at a high-interest consumer lending company, and Sybil Mulokwa, a manager at a company that develops software for small banks and credit unions. Though all three of us work in finance to a degree I primarily cover finance for The Times none of us have much experience using the kind of alternative financial services wed need to get from our list. We all have bank accounts, we all have savings and we all manage our money online. For FinX, we tried to pretend that wasnt the case. We were assigned to an area close to the hotel and started out thinking wed be able to cruise through our to-do list with time and money to spare. There was a gener al sense of optimism misguided optimism, Mulokwa said. In the end we got through only about half our tasks and still blew past our deadline. Even if wed had more time, we wouldnt have had enough cash to finish. Theres a lot of fees associated with all these services, Chay said. And its all for stuff I dont think about at all. Our first stop was on Sunset Boulevard at a Money Mart, an outlet that cashes checks, makes loans and offers Western Union money transfers. We started with our checks a payroll check for $70 made out to Chay and a $15 personal check made out to me. Chay and I had to create accounts with Money Mart, so we each provided a drivers license, address, phone number and thumbprint. Chays payroll check was processed relatively quickly, but it cost more than wed expected. He had called another check-cashing shop, which quoted him a fee of 2.25 percent of the face value of a payroll check. That would have been $1.58 for his check. But most shops also charge a minimum fee. In Money Marts case, it was $3, meaning we paid more than 4 percent of the checks face value. Money Mart charges substantially more to cash personal checks: 12 percent of the face value, with the same $3 minimum. For my $15 check, that fee would amount to 20 percent of the face value. But Money Mart wouldnt cash it. The check, written from a Chase checking account, had only the name of the account holder no phone number or address. The clerk, who asked not to be identified, asked if I had a phone number for the check writer. I didnt. A few minutes later, the clerk returned to tell me she couldnt cash the check. Wed have to try some where else. Before leaving, we tried to cross a few more items off our list. We bought a $20 money order, for a fee of $1.29. We also asked the clerk if we could get a $500 loan we werent going to borrow money, we just needed to ask and were told we couldnt borrow that amount. Wed have to borrow much less or much more. Money Mart offers payday loans, which under California law max out at $255 with a $45 fee. It also offers installment loans, which are larger and are paid off over months or years. But, as with many subprime lenders in California, the smallest installment loan Money Mart offers is $2,500 at an interest rate of either 139.9 percent or 224.9 percent, according to a form taped to the bulletproof teller window. Loans smaller than $2,500 can charge interest of no more than about 30 percent under California law. But theres no limit on inter est rates for larger loans, so many subprime lenders simply dont offer anything below $2,500. I was like, This is highway robbery, Mulokwa told me a few days later. Still, right now, Im stunned. Katie Falkenberg/Los Angeles Times/TNSRay Chay, left, director of operations at a high-interest consumer lending company, L.A.

Contact Editor Robert Bridges754firstname.lastname@example.org Joshua Resnick/Dreamstime/TNSDont avoid spicy foods in the summer. Yes, theyll make you sweat, but youre sweating already. When all that sweat evaporates, youre cooler. 7 ways to beat the summer heatBy Leslie BarkerThe Dallas Morning NewsAs the temperature flutters around 100, we get a little nostalgic for Decembers freeze and Februarys snow, for hot chocolate and cold toes on linoleum. Ah, and remember spring? Daffodils and open windows and wondering whether long sleeves would keep us warm enough on morning jogs? OK. Time to wipe away those wistful smiles (as well as the sweat beads such an effort created) and face reality: Its hot. And its going to be this hot hotter, even! for another five months. Four if were lucky. Before you blow a gasket, lose steam or bubble over at the mere thought, instead put cool cucumber slices over your eyes and do this: Chill. Chill out. Take a chill pill. Or any number of trite phrases that keep running through our perspiration-mottled brains. Keeping your cool is no easy task in summer weather. For the sake of your mental health (as well as our own), weve cooked up a few ideas to get you started. Close your eyes and count to 10 Isnt that what your mom told you to do when you get hot under the collar? Well take her thought a step further: Open them and count to diez. Or dix. Or zehn. What a fine time this would be to learn Spanish, French, German (were too hot to think of any more exotic ones). Or, if not to actually do homework, at least to sit in a cool classroom and listen to the rhythmic cadence of another language. Eat something spicy Perhaps better phrased: Dont avoid spicy foods in the summer. Yes, theyll make you sweat, but youre sweating already. When all that sweat evaporates, youre cooler. When you eat something spicy like a hot pepper, your blood vessels open to allow blood to flow more freely, says Lona Sandon, spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association and assistant professor of clinical nutrition at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. You might feel flushed. What it does is bring body water from surface closest to skin. You might sweat a little more. Then it evaporates off and helps the body to feel cool. The process may sound a bit counterproductive, but Sandons a big advocate of phytonutrients that make spicy foods spicy. Have at it, she says. Just carry a towel. And have a nice glass of water or lemonade. The best way to cool your body is to make sure you have enough fluid. Open your veins (but really your heart) Blood needs dont stop with summer, and not just because more people outside and on the road mean more accidents. For cancer patients, platelets (which have a shelf life of just five days) are imperative. Chemo drugs usual ly destroy the function of blood marrow, says Linda Goelzer, public relations director for Carter BloodCare. The platelets and blood products they get are the stopgap for them until their marrow gets cranked up again. Another reason to give, besides the basic life-saving one?

At the library, you can lose yourself in the shelves or connect with others who love reading. Public Library branches offer book clubs that meet various days and times. You can listen to what others have to say, as well as interject your own thoughts. You dont even have to whisper. Kick around an icecream idea The members of Girl Scout Troop 1678 in Plano are out of college now. Their leader, Patty Townsend, still recalls how much fun the troop had making coffee-can ice cream. She shared the top-secret, cant-find-anywhereelse-but-theInternet recipe with us: Into a very clean one-pound coffee can, stir one cup each of milk and heavy cream; one-half cup sugar; and one-half teaspoon vanilla. Add fruit, nuts or chocolate, if youd like. Put the lid on the can and seal with duct tape. Set the can into a threepound coffee can. Pack ice around it. Pour at least } cup rock salt on top of the ice. Seal the can. The girls would stand in lines about 10 feet apart, Townsend says. Theyd kick it back and forth and sing songs and giggle. It was a huge hit. After 30 or 40 minutes, unseal the various cans. Voila! Ice cream, three cold and creamy cups of the stuff. Youve already had your workout, so indulge without (much) guilt.

Make jokes Not only will laughter take your mind off how miserably hot you are, its also (did you know this?) a good abs workout. With that in mind, we asked Dave Little (www. lovedavelittle.com) for a bit of heat mirth.

Driving across country is a perfect way to sample the many different tastes of America. It can also presents some challenges. On the Boardwalk in Ocean City, MD we went to two places recommended by a fellow passenger on the airplane. The first was Thrashers for their French fries. We saw people putting Apple Cider Vinegar on the fries before salting them. Everyone was doing it so we figured there had to be something to it. Knowing the picky eater I am, Sue asked me first, and I said sure why not. And WOW if it wasnt really good. Then we went across the way to Dolles, which is known for their caramel corn. After stirring the hot caramel in a copper pot, they dumped in the popcorn and slowly added a whole stick of butter. It looked so sinful that we got a medium bucket to take on the road with us for a snack. Its like having your very own homemade Cracker Jacks with nuts too. In Montgomery, IN at Gasthof Amish Village, we went to the bakery and bought homemade peanut butter and a loaf of wheat bread that was so fresh it was still warm. We made sandwiches off of the opened glove box for at least 3 days. Its really not so easy to cut a slice of fresh baked bread in the moving car on the glove box with a steak knife, which was all we could find. In Dodge City, after a short trolley tour through town, or should I say feed lot after feed lot, you would think after seeing all of those cows crammed into those lots that itd be hard to eat a steak. Well not so much. We went to Caseys Cowtown Steakhouse and finished off one of the best filet mignons wed ever eaten. Most recently, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, we saw a sign advertising Pasties. We both laughed and thought, what the heck are pasties? Shortly after, I received a text from our friend Dan, who said his dad was from the U.P. area and if we got a chance we had to get a pastie, that they were so good and a real treat for them when they were younger. At our first pit stop, I asked about the pasties. I pronounced this the way you are all reading it PAY STEES. The girl at the counter chuckled then told me Id get laughed at if I ordered one like that, because PAY-STEES are what you put on your nipples; PASS-TEES (the correct pronunciation) are what you eat. So of course we laughed even harder and thanked her for the tip. Who knew we would get a vocabulary lesson on a Michigan U.P. food tradition. So in Escanaba we found Dobbers and bought a pastie for lunch. One was big enough for us to share; we got the original beef flavored one. It was baked dough filled with beef, potatoes, rutabaga, onions and very, very good. We ate this on the road and I fork fed Sue from the passenger seat. As good as this new treat was; it caused us a bigger problem down the road. My head was in my lap cutting up food and Sue kept looking over at me for her next bite and we missed our turn off. Topping off the eating experiences are the wines we wash it down with; visiting at least one winery per state we travel through both sampling and buying more for the road!

Woman is put in the middle of an affair among friendsDEAR ABBY Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com DEAR ABBY: I have two friends I am equally close to, Jane and Mary. We live in the same neighborhood. They are both married, live across the street from each other and spend time together almost every day. Their children play together. I spend a lot of time with both families, and my children play with theirs. Jane is having an affair with Marys husband and has confided in me about every detail. She keeps telling me its over, and then I find out it isnt. I spoke to Marys husband and told him if it doesnt stop, Ill tell Mary. (Jane doesnt know I talked to him.) They recently had another weak moment. Should I tell Mary whats going on? Her husband has cheated in the past, and she chose to stay with him. Im afraid the fallout from her finding out will be two broken marriages and several broken friendships. Its very difficult to spend time with any/all of them knowing what I know. I feel like my silence is betraying Mary. Help! -WISH I DIDNT KNOW DEAR WISH: You are already more involved in this than you should be, and Jane should not have placed you in that position. Mary knows she has a philandering husband but chose to remain with him. I vote for keeping your lip zipped and trying to stay out of the line of fire. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married for 38 years. We divorced once, but remarried. We have four grown sons and six grandchildren. He retired a year and a half ago, and I went through menopause. There has been constant contention since. He wants to fight over everything and wont speak to me for days, sometimes weeks, at a time. I feel I am being emotionally abused. When I asked him for another divorce, he told me not to be ridiculous. Four months ago, I moved out and moved in with my dad to be his caretaker. Dad is 95 and on home hospice. I am so much happier not living with my husband. When my father passes away, I dread having to move back with my husband. I know we probably need counseling, but he doesnt agree. I want to live a happy, peaceful life. My husband seems to enjoy the constant fighting. Should I get my own place and live apart from my husband when my dad passes? -UNHAPPILY MARRIED IN UTAH DEAR UNHAPPILY MARRIED: Your husbands silent treatment qualifies as emotional abuse. You do NOT have to tolerate it. Before making plans about where you will live after your fathers passing, discuss this with a lawyer. Marriage isnt slavery, and you do not need your abusers permission to divorce him (again).
4D S UNDAY, JUNE 24, 2018 LIFE LAKE CITY REPORTER Review: New Jurassic may be the greatest of allBy Colin CovertStar Tribune (Minneapolis)Like an ancient volcano thundering to life, the Jurassic realm keeps roaring onto film screens with unexpected energy. The fifth episode in the series, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, is the latest and arguably greatest of all. It equals many achievements of Steven Spielbergs 1993 breakthrough in computer-animated fantasy and, in smart-alecky, self-satirizing ways, even surpasses it. This is the T. rex of franchise entertainment, bigger than its rivals, bolder and coming on strong from the get-go to the very last moment. Run away, Star Wars Story spinoffs, you cannot compete with this. Theres a lot of standard sequel material here, of course. You cant win the global market with a dinosaur movie lacking angry raptors on the run and heroic humans in breakneck escapes. But the basic ingredients of the script (co-written by Colin Trevorrow, who directed the monumentally successful Jurassic World) are layered with idiosyncratic ideas and ironic subtexts right in plain view. It isnt on the gonzo level of series star Chris Pratts Guardians of the Galaxy goofs, but its still outstanding. Like the sci-fi satires District 9 and Starship Troopers or the recent, serious Planet of the Apes trilogy, it has the feeling of a classic slam-bang thrill ride updated for the paranoid funhouse of the current moment. The action begins on a dark and rainy night at the fabled South American dinosaur sanctuary of Isla Nublar, as a security squad learns that cages and huge barrier walls arent always effective. We move to a TV news feed about the disaster that notes the president doesnt believe dinosaurs ever existed. Add a cameo of Jeff Goldblum, who played scientist/philosopher Dr. Ian Malcolm in the first two Jurassic Park films, warning about mans responsibility to nature at a U.S. Senate hearing conducted by self-important nitwits. If all that doesnt seem relevant, check out the Hawaiistyle lava apocalypse about to melt down the island menagerie. Things feeling familiar now? Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard return as Owen and Claire, former employees of the failed dinosaur getaway, which closed as a luxury theme park after a feeding frenzy by tall, toothy reptiles in the previous chapter. Owen remains a dinosaur whisperer whose spiritual connection to the creatures has led him to train the most intelligent examples of the species, and to work for the protection of all. Claire, the resorts former manager, developed moral objections to the whole enterprise, which was almost equally fatal to vacationers and Velociraptors. The film properly handles the actors lack of romantic chemistry by informing us that Claire and Owen had a brief bygone fling and remained friends. Now they work like a brave-bigbrother/plucky-little-sister team, fighting to rescue the islands remaining dinosaurs from new threats of extinction. Those include the rivers of lava coursing from Isla Nublars erupting crater, and greedy mercenaries allegedly preserving the remaining creatures for aged gazillionaire Benjamin Lockwood (James Cromwell). Nearly a fossil himself, Lockwood lives in a goth ic mansion in Northern California with his 10-yearold granddaughter Maisie (Isabella Sermon). He says he wants to use the cloning technology he invented to maintain the ancient species. As most viewers will instantly suspect, its more complicated than that. The film is directed in high style by Spanish filmmaker J.A. Bayona, who made one of the eras prime horror films with 2007s The Orphanage. He clearly enjoys Spielbergs first two forays in the Jurassic empire. In terms of precise pacing, trim character work and flawless optics, theres hardly a shot here that couldnt have come from the master himself. But Bayona is conducting that familiar symphony with his own energy. The films most visceral moments are not all about humans being ripped apart and eaten. They take place amid the animal skeletons displayed in the old tycoons manor house. There, the jungle monsters creep around like evil spirits, creating hair-raising frights through their unexpected shadows, slowly extended claws and gargoyle-like images atop the steeply slanted roof amid a lightning storm. It plays like a menacing passage from a supernatural thriller, patiently building up Maisies vulnerability until she, and we, are scared to smithereens. Some fans may grouse that too few people are seized, chomped and swallowed, but less feels like just enough. If sequel-itis has become the incurable infection of big-studio filmmaking, an antidote may lie in this movies fusion of proven material and singular creative flair. Universal Pictures and Amblin EntertainmentA scene from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.Rodney and Sarah Lou Thomas celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on June 22, 2018. They have three children, Renee (deceased), Rowdy and Levi, eight grandchildren and one great-grandchild. They are life long residents of Lake City. On June 22, 1968, I was the luckiest man alive. This is the day God let me borrow one of his princess angels. I could never thank God enough for My Little Princess Angel. She has been and still is a blessing in my life. As I go into the golden years of my life, I thank God everyday for his gift. My princess Angel, Sarah Lou Davis Thomas, does more for me than I could write on a thousand pages of paper. My prayer is we live a long and healthy life together. With the Lord Jesus Christ as our savior when we go to heaven, there will be no pain or hurt, just a blessed Jesus to hold our hands as we enter the gates of heaven. I love you, Princess Angel Sarah Lou, always have and always will.
