Pittman is.By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comSuwannee County Sheriffs officials said on Wednesday they are increasingly interested in the whereabouts of the former property owner of the McAlpin residence where human remains were found on Sunday. Sheriff Sam St. John said the skull and collection of bones found during their search of a remote property off the 1900 block of 77th Road in McAlpin will now be tested by the University of Florida specialists to determine the persons age, race and sex. Theyll extract DNA from the tooth, said St. John. They were sent late yesterday afternoon. How long its going to take, Im not sure. At least two local missing persons from the Lake City area, Kamrie Mitchell and Mary Robertson, are under consideration by the SCSO. Mitchells vehicle was found about five to six miles nearby, St. John said.

Little is known about Deborah J. Pittman, one of the former owners of the property, though her name has appeared in Suwannee County delinquent tax records associated with the address since 2010. Thats who were looking for, said St. John. If anybody knows her or knows her whereabouts, if shes out there and hears about the story, (and) first of all to make sure if shes OK. Otherwise, he said theyd like to see if Pittman might know anything about the remains SCSO found scattered across the property Sunday evening. St. John said the skull was reported by the current owner of the property, and after their initial search, investigators discovered two more bones across a chain link fenced portion of the yard nearby. A neighboring church cemetery was also considered as the origin of the remains. We checked that, St. John said. Thats one of the things that we did check. We didnt see any type of fresh graves dug up. Suwannne County tax appraiser records show the current Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church building was built in 1967. St. John said earlier he believed the remains to be one to three years old. He said they contacted the churchs groundskeeper, and he said they performed a walk through of the cemetery. Hes never had any type problem, St. John said. A neighboring resident said she saw SCSO gathered at the property around the time of their search. St. John said he encountered a similar discovery years ago before he was a SCSO sheriff. The only thing he said there was left to do was await the DNA results and see if there were any hits from the numerous databases they would be entered into. Gainesville will be the second round of testing the remains undergo. On Monday they were in Tallahassee for examination by state medical examiners. The medical examiner said they werent able to do much at all, St. John said. REMAINSContinued From 1ABy CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comThe School Board has backed down from awarding a legal services contract to a new firm, anticipating an appeal from the attorney it previously ousted. The board on Tuesday voted to rescind its previous action to award the contract to the Douglas & Carter firm. The vote was 3-1, with Dana Glenn Brady-Giddens absent and Steve Nelson in opposition. The move came after Guy Norris of Norris & Norris, the previous contract holder, filed an intent to protest, claiming that the board solicited bids without ever voting on the matter in a public meeting, violating Floridas government transparency laws. Norris, in a June 18 letter stating his intent to protest the boards decision to award the contract to Douglas & Carter, wrote that the board made multiple failures during the process, including non-compliance with Floridas Sunshine Law, failure to consider the minimum qualifications for the contract and impermissible communications with Douglas & Carter. The School Boards competitive solicitation for legal services lacked the integrity and fairness owed to all responding vendors and the citizens of Columbia County, Norris wrote. The School Board awarded the contract to Douglas & Carter on June 13. Norris told the Lake City Reporter on Wednesday that the boards reversal validates his complaints. The rescission of that award is an admission by the School Board members and the superintendent that every charge that was stated in our bid protest letter was true, Norris said. School Board Chairman Keith Hudson disagreed. I just dont think anything was done wrong, he said. But I wanted an abundance of transparency. The process has been anything but transparent, Norris said, adding that the rescission was put on the agenda at the last minute by Superintendent Lex Carswell and voted on without explanation or discussion. Government in the sunshine thats the law and thats what the public rightly demands, Norris said. And that clearly hasnt happened here. Under Florida law, such bids have to be fair and competitive. But Douglas & Carter enjoyed an unfair advantage, Norris claimed in the letter. Douglas & Carter was given a copy of an April 20 renewal proposal from Norris & Norris, which contained multiple minor revisions that were incorporated verbatim into the opposing firms bid. The School Board received no public records request for the Norris & Norris renewal proposal. Firms vying for the contract must demonstrate skill and experience in the relevant field of law, and preference must be given to those with experience in and knowledge of laws applicable to K through 12 school districts, the letter states. The proposal from winning firm Douglas & Carter states in the second paragraph it has not previously represented a Florida school board. Therefore, while a fine law firm of capable attorneys, Douglas & Carter did not present a responsive proposal that conforms in all material respects to the Minimum Qualifications or the Preferred Qualifications of the School Boards solicitation, Norris wrote. Votes to rescind award of contract to another firm. Dunn applauds Water Wars winFrom staff and wire reportsIn a victory for Florida, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that the nations third-largest state should be given another chance to prove its case that overconsumption of water in Georgia is damaging the Apalachicola River system. The 5-4 decision, written by Justice Stephen Breyer, overturned a 2017 recommendation by a court-appointed special master that found Florida had not proven its case by clear and convincing evidence that imposing a cap on Georgias water use would benefit Florida water systems, including oys ter-rich Apalachicola Bay in Franklin County. Breyer said the special master had applied too strict a standard in rejecting Floridas claim. To require clear and convincing evidence about the workability of a (water) decree before the court or a special master has a view about likely harms and likely amelioration is, at least in this case, to put the cart before the horse, Breyer wrote. The immediate impact of the decision is to send the case back to Ralph Lancaster, a Maine lawyer who was appointed as a special master by the Supreme Court to oversee the dispute. Florida filed the lawsuit in 2013, although the case is only the latest iteration of a decades-old battle about the ApalachicolaChattahoochee-Flint river system, which starts in Georgia and flows south to Florida. U.S. Rep. Neal Dunn, who represents southern Columbia County as well as much of the Panhandle in Congress, lauded the court victory. Today is a great day for North Florida and the future of the Apalachicola River and Bay, Dunn said in a prepared statement. Its clear our fisheries, our economy, and our environment have been devastated over the years by Georgias unrestrained water use. The Supreme Court made the right decision today in recognizing that Florida has been harmed as a result of decreased water flow to the ACF River Basin. Now its time for the Special Master and Army Corps of Engineers to come up with an equitable solution. I will continue to fight for our River Basin and all those who rely on the water to make their livelihood. Among the key questions Lancaster will have to settle is whether an equity-based cap on Georgias water consumption in the ApalachicolaChattahoochee-Flint system would increase the water flow into the Apalachicola River and whether the amount of that extra water would significantly redress the economic and ecological harm that Florida has suffered, the opinion said. The special master could also seek further findings on his preliminary rulings that Florida had suffered harm from the overconsumption of water by Georgia. And the future deliberations will have to weigh Georgias claims that any limits on its water use would undermine its economy, including the growth of the Atlanta area and the states agriculture industry in southwestern Georgia. We repeat, however, that Florida will be entitled to a decree only if it is shown that the benefits of the (apportionment) substantially outweigh the harm that might result, the court said. Breyers opinion was supported by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Anthony Kennedy, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor. In a dissent, Justice Clarence Thomas, a Georgia native who was joined by justices Samuel Alito, Elena Kagan and Neil Gorsuch, argued the court had enough evidence to decide this case now. Dunn

By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comCity Council District 10 challenger Clarence Tucker plans to withdraw from the race after his supposed housemate said the candidate doesnt live where he claimed. In his candidacy paperwork, Tucker listed his address as 923 NE Coldwater Ave., swearing under penalty of perjury that the information was accurate. But Willie James Bradley, who rents the house from owner Caroline D. McCray of Colorado, said Tucker never lived there. He just asked if he could use my address and thats it, Bradley said. Tucker showed the Lake City Reporter his voter registration card, issued in February, which lists his address as his mothers house at 1356 NE Washington Street which is not in District 10 or Lake City proper. But his drivers license, issued in February 2017, lists the Coldwater Avenue address as his residence. Lake Citys charter states candidates must live in the district they seek to represent at least one year before qualifying for office. Tucker said he rents a room at Bradleys house for $400 every couple of weeks, but he only stays there one or two nights a week. Tucker said he moved in with Bradley in February 2017, but Bradley on Tuesday said Tucker had only lived there for eight months. On Wednesday, Bradley said his previous statement was untrue and Tucker did not live there. I was trying to help a friend out, he said. That boys like a brother to me. Bradley said Tucker approached him last year to ask if he could use the address to run for City Council. Tucker said McCray pressured Bradley into saying he didnt live there. He was scared that she was going to put him out, Tucker said. McCray on Tuesday said Bradley and his wife are not allowed to add tenants without going through her. She said she visited the property in October and saw no signs of Tucker. But Tucker maintains that he lives at the Coldwater Avenue address, though he spends the rest of the week at his 86-year-old mothers house to take care of her. When asked if he thinks whether his time spent at the Coldwater Avenue address meets the requirements for permanent residency, Tucker said he believes it does. Or temporary, he added. Tucker said he spoke to City Clerk Audrey Sikes and Columbia County Supervisor of Elections Liz Horne, but neither told him he needed to drop out of the race. Sikes and Horne both told the Lake City Reporter its not their call to say whether a candidate needs to drop out once they qualify. Still, Tucker said he plans to withdraw from the race because of the paperwork, adding that the controversy has likely cost him voters, encouraging his remaining supporters to back incumbent Eugene Jefferson. Im not angry at all, he said. Some offices require a candidate to be a permanent resident of the relevant jurisdiction at the time of qualifying for an election, while others only require permanent residency when sworn in, said attorney Joel Foreman, who provides legal ser vices to the Columbia County Supervisor of Elections. State law defines a permanent residence at somewhere that a person has his or her true, fixed and permanent home and principal establishment to which, whenever absent, he or she has the intention of returning. The states definition of permanent residency is fluid by design, said attorney Joel Foreman, who provides legal services to the Columbia County Supervisor of Elections.

It wont quit. Critics of President Donald Trump screech profanities on TV, they throw press secretaries out of restaurants and one of them on Tuesday said the Supreme Courts upholding of a travel ban was the equivalent of one of the worst things it has ever done. That would be allowing JapaneseAmerican citizens to get locked up in concentration camps during World War II, and Justice Sonia Sotomayor wasnt through yet. In a dissent, she wanted the world to know that Trump had called for a complete Muslim ban during the campaign, and that this very act, an example of his recurring religious bias, was all the evidence needed that his ban was a disgrace to America, the Constitution, all we stand for. What we had here was still another example of an overreaching Trump adversary aiming to do more damage to our precious system of governance than he could come up with at his very worst. The occasion was a 5-to-4 decision upholding his effort to keep terrorists from coming our way from countries where they are plentiful and where vetting is a lost cause the United States is trying to restore. Chief Justice John Roberts got at the truth of things in his ruling that said it was not the job of the court to judge Trumps statements but to judge whether they influenced what he did. They didnt. There was no religious discrimination in the ban. It was religiously neutral. It was also well within the presidents authority and responsibilities as decided, not by emotions riding high, but by statutes. This decision, he wrote, was in no way akin to OKing the racist roundup of Japanese-Americans, something that was objectively illegal and scarcely a presidential prerogative. Sotomayors contrary contention strikes me as saying she cares not a whit for rule of law, just as lower courts ruling against Trumps second and third bans were doing serious, politicizing harm to a judiciary thereby rendered less credible. To not a few leftists out there, the decision was just another instance of conservatives outnumbering liberals on the court. It was more than that. It was the people believing in the most obvious meanings of the Constitution outnumbering those who want to reform it into vaporous ideals they can then twist anyway they like. Their take is that the 18th century document is outdated and that playing loose is the way to go. The real solution, if they are right about a need for change, is the legitimate amendment process that requires widespread consensus. Sometimes it has seemed we do not even have a Constitution anymore, just an oligarchy of nine people taking the place of Congress. With one appointment, that of Justice Neil Gorsuch, Trump has done much to keep constitutionality in place, as was shown by still another decision Tuesday. California had written a law saying that anti-abortion, crisis pregnancy centers must advertise where abortions can be had, which is kind of like saying Republican headquarters should advertise speeches by socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders. The First Amendment has something to say about this, as did another 5-to-4 court decision that, of course, still allows the state government to advertise all it wants. Liberty lives on, at least for a while.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman ANOTHER VIEWApplause for those who kept lookingFor more than a half-century, the family of U.S. Air Force Col. Peter Stewart could only speculate what happened to him over in Vietnam. A native of Scotland who lived in W inter Haven, Stewart was a fighter pilot who flew dozens of combat missions during World War II, Korea and Vietnam. According to the Defense Department, Stewarts last mission occurred on a fateful spring day 52 years ago when his F-4 Phantom erupted in a ball of fire while engaging enemy trucks. The military could not conduct any search or recovery operations in the immediate wake of the incident because conditions on the ground were too risky. Thus, the Pentagon initially declared Stewart missing in action, and a few years later updated that to killed in action. It appeared he was lost forever to his widow, Marnie, and the couples six children. Its a terrible feeling, and I wouldnt wish that on anybody, Marnie Stewart, who met her husband in 1944 when he was stationed at the Bartow Air Base, told the Alabama NewsCenter last month. We always hoped that we would hear some thing. The family finally r eceived that long-awaited word this past spring, when the Air Force notified the Stewarts that Col. Stewart would be coming home after all. The Defense Department says that in 2014 a joint U.S.-Vietnamese search team found an F-4 crash site in the Dien Bien Province. Further investigation and sub sequent testing revealed last June that some remains belonged to Col. Mar tin Scott of Oklahoma. But the team kept digging and uncovered more. Based on dental records and a St. Christopher medal recovered at the scene, the military eventually identified them as Col. Stewart. His remains were returned to Winter Haven earlier this month, and Stewart was given a funeral with full military honors last week. Despite the decades-long wait to put their loved one to rest, and their minds at ease, Marnie Stewart, now 94, and her children are among the lucky ones. When the Paris Peace Accords, which ended Americas involvement in Vietnam, were inked in 1973, the Pentagon determined 2,646 American troops were unaccounted for in Southeast Asia. That meant they had either been killed and no remains found or were considered missing in action. The accords contained a stipulation authorizing efforts to find American MIAs. While a few dozen were found shortly after the agree ment was reached, the searches ended following the Communist takeover of V ietnam in 1975, the Pentagon notes. It wasnt until 1992 that joint, large-scale search efforts were organized. Those continue today. Stewart is among 1,049 Americans located and recov ered from Vietnam during those hunts. That leaves 1,597 Americans still unaccounted for from Vietnam. That list includes 54 Floridians, and among them is Air Force Capt. Gerald Olson of Winter Haven, who has been declared presumed dead from an incident in Laos. While the quest to find those unaccounted for in Vietnam has absorbed most of the attention on this issue, the government reports that number is just the tip of the iceberg. More than 82,000 U.S. troops are considered unaccounted for from wars dating back to World War II. The Constitution wins again Panama City News HeraldCourt equalizes internet sales tax rulesThe U.S. Supreme Court has imposed long-overdue parity on the world of internet commerce with its ruling last Thursday that states can collect sales taxes from out-of-state online merchants. For far too long, internet retailers with no physical operations in, for example, California have been able to evade collecting and passing on sales tax for purchases made by state residents. Its grossly unfair to their brickand-mortar competitors, who not only struggle under the weight of storefront rents but also are disadvantaged because their products cost up to 10 percent more when sales tax is added. State officials have been studying the high court ruling and California law to determine whether they can immediately impose a tax requirement on out-of-state retailers or if they will first need action by the Legislature. It appears that when state sales tax rules were last rewritten in 2011, lawmakers anticipated such a high court ruling. It seems that Gov. Jerry Browns administration, which oversees the agency responsible for sales tax collection, could direct immediate implementation. If it can, it should. For too many years, weve been hearing online retailers complain that collecting sales taxes would hinder expansion of internet commerce. That argument is outdated. Consumers no longer need the incentive of a no-sales-tax discount to consider shopping with their desktop computers or smart phones. Similarly, weve heard the cry that small online retailers should get a break an argument that is equally perplexing. There is no logical reason that small brick-andmortar companies, or small online companies located within the state, should be required to collect sales tax but fledgling out-of-state competitors should be exempt. Finally, some online merchants have whined that its too complicated to keep track of the different tax rates in state and local jurisdictions across the country. Actually, internet companies such as Amazon, which already collects sales tax for products sold across state lines (but not for third-party sellers that appear on its website), has demonstrated that the problem is easily resolved. Enterprising companies will undoubtedly come up with competing products to fill the need, just as TurboTax and H&R Block have done for income tax payers for years now. The same technology innovation that brought us internet commerce can certainly also smooth the path for tax collection. Its time for California to fully level the playing field, which could bring the state $1 billion or more in additional tax revenues. And, thanks to the Supreme Court ruling, there seems to be no legal obstacle to doing so. The ruling crossed philosophical lines on the high court, with Justices Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch forming the majority. Their decision came in a case pertaining to South Dakotas attempt to collect taxes from outof-state businesses. The justices reversed a 1992 high court ruling that prohibited states from collecting sales taxes from businesses that had no stores, warehouses or other physical presence there. Kennedy and Thomas, who were on the court in 1992, said they regretted the earlier ruling. Each year the physical presence rule becomes further removed from economic reality and results in significant revenue losses to the States, Kennedy wrote for the majority. We couldnt agree more. Its about time.Mercury NewsWith one appointment, that of Justice Neil Gorsuch, Trump has done much to keep constitutionality in place, as was shown by still another decision Tuesday.

The move comes one day after the resignation of Kevin Fields, who was originally slated to lead FGC in its first season since 1995. With the new season looming, Ruise immediately steps in for the Timberwolves. He arrives to Lake City after spending 25 years as the boys head coach at Baker County High School, where he led the Wildcats to 10 district championships and two state semifinal appearances. Ruise says hes yet to contact any players but nonetheless looks forward to leading the one-time state champion Timberwolves. Im excited with the opportunity and believe I can make an instant impact on the program, he said in a press release. The young men who represent this college will work hard and be goal-oriented. My goal is to get our student athletes to understand that to be successful in life, youll have to work hard for it.

Oregon States Trevor Larnach hit a tiebreaking tworun homer in the top of the ninth inning after Arkansas blew a chance to lock up the national championship, and the Beavers forced a third and final game in the College World Series finals with a 5-3 victory Wednesday night. Cadyn Grenier singled in the tying run after three Arkansas fielders watched his foul ball drop between them. Larnach then launched his 19th homer of the season into the right-field bullpen to set off a wild celebration in the Beavers dugout. The game, however, might be most remembered for the play the Razorbacks (48-20) didnt make, one that would have given them their first national title in baseball. Zach Clayton, who pinch ran for Zak Taylor after a walk leading off the ninth, was on third when Grenier came up to bat with two outs and the entire stadium on its feet. On a 1-1 pitch from Matt Cronin (2-2), Grenier popped a high foul behind first base and toward the stands. There was plenty of room to make the catch, and second baseman Carson Shaddy, first baseman Jared Gates and right fielder Eric Cole converged. But no one called it, and it hit the ground, keeping the Beavers alive. Cronin took a moment to compose himself, wiping his brow and adjusting his hat. His next pitch was way high and, after a foul ball, Grenier sent a drive into left field to score Clayton. Grenier pumped his fist as he ran to first and punched the air twice more when he rounded the base. Kevin Abel (7-1) was the winner. Carson Shaddy gave Arkansas a 3-2 lead in the fifth, and Kole Ramage and Cronin turned back Oregon State threats in the sixth and eighth innings.Photos by BRENT KUYKENDALL/Lake City ReporterColumbia receiver T.J. Jones tries to evade defenders during the FHS7V7A qualifier on June 6. Associated PressFAIR LAWN, N.J. The brother of New York Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins was arrested and charged Wednesday with manslaughter in the death of a 25-year-man whose body was found in the NFL players New Jersey home. The Bergen County prosecutors office said Wednesday 34-year-old William H. Jenkins, of Fair Lawn, was charged with aggravated manslaughter in the death of Roosevelt Rene, whose body was discovered Tuesday. Acting Prosecutor Dennis Calo said William Jenkins is in custody in the Ontario County Jail in New York state. The investigation is ongoing. Janoris Jenkins home is about 10 miles (16 kilometers) north of MetLife Stadium. Property records show Janoris Jenkins has lived at the house the last two years, and on Wednesday the Bergen County prosecutors office listed William Jenkins as living at the same address. According to New York state department of corrections records, William Jenkins was arrested on drug charges in 2006 and again in 2011. He was paroled from prison in July 2016. Janoris Jenkins is entering his third season with the Giants. The 29-year-old signed a five-year, $62.5 million contract with the team in 2016 and had an outstanding first season when he was selected to be a starter in the 2017 Pro Bowl. Jenkins played at Florida from 200810 before finishing his college career at North Alabama. He was drafted in the second round by the St. Louis Rams in 2012. He played four seasons with the Rams.HOWARD SIMMONS/New York Daily News/TNSNew York Giants defensive back Janoris Jenkins in East Rutherford, N.J. on April 24.

UP TO THE FINISHBy JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comEverything was going great for Columbia at Wednesdays FHS7V7A State Championship. Up until the last game. The Tigers rolled through their first six contests before falling to Sandalwood 26-12 in the championship game at Haines City High School. Three possessions without points ultimately cost Columbia, which scored on nearly every possession in the six scrimmages prior in the afternoon. I thought we played pretty flawless through six games and then we didnt finish at the end, but I saw a ton of good stuff offensively and defensively Columbia coach Brian Allen said. Weve just got to be able to close it out at the end. I thought the kids competed well throughout six football games but the seventh game just wasnt our top effort. It was sort of a bizarre finale for the Tigers considering they defeated the Saints 27-20 in pool play. That came after they beat Menendez (27-19) and Vanguard (27-14) to finish pool play unbeaten. The Tigers went on to defeat Haines City 21-6 in the quarterfinals before sending St. Augustine packing by the same score in the semis. But while Columbia struggled to finish drives in the championship, Sandalwood was scoring on each ensuing possession. I dont think there was one drive prior to that (game) that Columbia finishes runner-up to Sandalwood at FHS7V7A State Championship.Columbia receiver Jaden Williams moves up the field after a catch in the FHS7V7A qualifier on June 6.

It never came. Instead, the Germans have become the fourth defending champions in the last five tournaments to be eliminated in the group stage following a 2-0 loss to South Korea on Wednesday. The four-time champions allowed a pair of injury-time goals while knowing a 1-0 victory would have been enough to advance because of the result in the other group match. Germany ended up last in Group F while Sweden and Mexico advanced to the round of 16. South Korea was also eliminated despite the victory. It was the first time Germany has been knocked out in the first round since 1938, though the team was not allowed to enter the 1950 tournament. Kim Young-gwon scored the first goal in the third minute of injury time, a goal that sent the Koreans cheering in Kazan and the Mexicans delirious in Yekaterinburg. Originally called out for offside, the goal was given after video review. Son Heung-min made it 2-0 in the sixth minute of stoppage time after Neuer came up the field to help his teammates outside the South Korea box. Son tapped the ball into an empty net after a long pass from Ju Se-jong. Besides Germany this year, France in 2002, Italy in 2010 and Spain in 2014 were the previous defending champions to get eliminated in the group stage.SWEDEN 3, MEXICO 0In Yekaterinburg, Sweden was so dominant against Mexico at the World Cup that the best Mexican plays of the night were made 600 miles away by South Koreans. The Swedes rolled to a 3-0 rout Wednesday, never challenged in the second half, overtaking Mexico to win Group F just four nights after a gut-wrenching last-minute loss to Germany. The result, combined with South Koreas 2-0 upset of the Germans, meant Sweden and Mexico the group runner-up advanced. Sweden makes its first appearance in the knockout stage since 2006. Mexico plays in the round of 16 for the seventh straight World Cup, with its fans desperate for its first quarterfinal appearance in 32 years the elusive quinto partido, or fifth game. Ludwig Augustinsson volleyed a left-footed shot past goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa from close range five minutes into the second half, and captain Andreas Granqvist con verted a penalty kick to help Sweden take control. Mexicos Edson Alvarez had an own goal in the 74th minute to put the game out of reach at 3-0.BRAZIL 2, SERBIA 0In Moscow, Paulinho and Thiago Silva scored a goal each Wednesday to give the five-time champions a victory over Serbia and first place in their group. Brazil struggled in its opening two matches, first held to a 1-1 draw and then needing late goals to win the other. But they con trolled this one. Paulinho gave his team the lead when he met a lofted ball from Philippe Coutinho in the 36th minute. The defensive midfielder let the ball bounce in front of him near the penalty spot and kicked his right leg in the air to tap it over the goalkeepers fingertips. Silva later scored with a powerful header in the 68th from Neymars corner. Brazil finished first in Group E and will next face Mexico in the round of 16 on Monday in Samara. Serbia was eliminated, finishing third in the group behind Switzerland.COSTA RICA 2, SWITZERLAND 2In Nizhny Novgorod, Switzerland has qualified for the round of 16 at the World Cup despite twice losing the lead in a draw with Costa Rica, which had already been eliminated. Costa Rica scored from Bryan Ruiz penalty kick in stoppage time to tie the match on Wednesday night, but it didnt affect Switzerlands progression as the second-place team in Group E. Brazil topped the group after a 2-0 win over Serbia and will play Mexico. Switzerland will play Sweden. Bjerim Dzemaili slammed in Switzerlands first goal from close range after being set up by a header from Breel Embolo. Costa Rica got its first goal in Russia when defender Kendall Waston headed in a corner early in the second to equalize. Substitute Josip Drmic put Switzerland 2-1 up in the 88th minute. Ruizs penalty kick hit the crossbar and then bounced in off of goalkeeper Yann Sommer.LI GA/Xinhua via ZUMA Wire Thomas Mueller (top) of Germany reacts after the 2018 FIFA World Cup Group F match between Germany and South Korea on Wednesday in Kazan, Russia.

LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, JUNE 28, 2018 3B CIPHER DEAR ABBY: My parents went through a bitter divorce ve years ago and have had little to no contact since then. During the process of the divorce, their communication was through my siblings and me, which took a toll on us. However, despite the turmoil of the divorce, we are still close to both of them. Im a medical student who will be graduating next year. I recently brought up the idea of having a graduation party, but my father says he refuses to come if Mom or anyone from her side of the family will be there. is led to a discussion about future weddings and events that will most likely happen soon. My siblings and I are in our midto late-20s, and Dad insists that he wont attend any future events that Mom will attend, even if its his own childs wedding. It was extremely dicult to hear. My siblings and I cant imagine him boycotting something just because he doesnt want to be in the presence of our mother. We all think hes overreacting and needs to get over the past. Must we get over the fact that he doesnt want to be around our mother and allow him to skip these important days? -CHILD OF DIVORCE IN MICHIGAN DEAR CHILD: Your father may be angry, but he is also being selsh and childish. By telling you what he did, hes attempting to manipulate you into choosing between him and your mother. By asking me whether you should allow him to skip these important milestones, you appear to be under the impression that you can somehow control your father. You CANNOT control the actions of another adult. You can, however, control the way you react to his behavior. You and your siblings should not allow yourselves to be manipulated. Remind your father that if he follows through with his threat, he will be missed, and the only person hell be hurting is himself. DEAR ABBY: My best friend from college recently had a baby. I had planned a trip to visit her, and during my visit, she said, we would visit the local pool. A week before I was set to leave, she notied me that I would have to wear a T-shirt over my bathing suit at all times because my t body would make her neighbors who have mom bodies uncomfortable, and she doesnt want to upset them. I was shocked and oended for women of all sizes. I responded that I would never be uncomfortable with anyones mom body or ask them to cover up, and I wont wear a T-shirt. My bathing suit is not skimpy and would not be considered revealing by any standards. She responded that if I have a problem with it, I should just not come. Help! -SHOCKED AND OF FENDED DEAR SHOCKED AND OF FENDED: Be neither shocked nor oended. I agree that no one should have to cover their bodies. I suspect your best friend from college is not happy with HER post-baby body right now and wants to avoid comparisons. Tell her you understand, and try to reschedule a visit during ski season.

The group includes an array of superstars, big men, glue guys and sharp-shooters. But it all starts with LeBron James, who will have to decide if he wants to stay in Cleveland or chase a ring in Los Angeles, Houston, Philadelphia, or elsewhere. NBA FREE AGENCYSo many dominoesBy TIM REYNOLDSAssociated PressMIAMI The rumor mill is in overdrive, with nuggets such as these: LeBron James has looked at schools in Los Angeles, hes not particularly fond of Houston and hes hugging restaurant diners in Miami. Ah, free agency is back. It technically starts Sunday at 12:01 a.m. EDT in the East, 9:01 p.m. Saturday out West, but is already well underway everywhere in the sense that everybody is talking about what might happen. James is once again the biggest domino that will fall; he may opt out of his contract, but that doesnt mean hell leave Cleveland and he may opt in for nearly $36 million next season, but that doesnt mean hes certain to be staying, either. Boston guard Kyrie Irving has a word for these days: Pre-agency. Thats actually a title to describe whats going on now, Irving said. But yeah, we know that 12 a.m. July 1st, thats when it just starts getting nutty. James is hardly the only person who will create that nuttiness. Paul George has a decision to make about his future; stay in Oklahoma City or move on, with the Los Angeles Lakers believed to be his dream destination. San Antonio has big decisions to make about Kawhi Leonard; they can take a risk and keep him for the final year of his contract, offer him a new deal or trade him elsewhere. And what happens in their cases will surely impact what James does, much in the same way the Chris Bosh decision in 2010 helped really pave the way for him to go to Miami. Thing is, nobody knows whatll happen. Hence, the intrigue. Thats the challenge in this league, James said during the NBA Finals, when his Cavaliers were swept by Golden State. I think every GM and every president and every coaching staff is trying to figure out how they can make up the right matchups to compete for a championship and win a championship. The Los Angeles Lakers will have about $61 million in cap space; half the league might not have any. So this summer, with cap space for most teams at a premium, the biggest moves might have to come through trades. There has been a lot of discussion with a lot of teams about a lot of players, Heat President Pat Riley said. I just feel theres a restlessness on the part of teams, and also theres a reluctance to do things. ... Its hard to pull the trigger on that kind of thing. Golden States Kevin Durant will be a free agent in name only hes already said hes returning to the Warriors. Golden State will spend free agency bolstering its bench, and the best team in the NBA should be better in the next couple of weeks. All thats left to decide there is what terms Durant wants. Whatever he wants, Golden State general manager Bob Myers said. Sometimes you dont negotiate. ... Hes earned the right to sign whatever deal he wants. I just want him to sign a deal. I want him to be happy and want him to know that we want him as long as he wants to be here. Hes earned that, to kind of lay out the terms. Philadelphia isnt tam pering, but isnt being shy: Both coach Brett Brown and newly minted rookie of the year Ben Simmons have come out this offseason and said how much a great veteran will help their team. Maybe that is a free agent, a big free agent who we can lean on and learn from, Simmons said. He didnt say LeBron, but sure sounds like James. Houston will look to add James as well in an effort to find the formula that will supplant the Warriors. The Rockets nearly ousted Golden State in the Western Conference finals, wasting double-digit leads in both Game 6 and Game 7 of that series all while Chris Paul, who seems likely to stay in Houston but could choose to leave, was sidelined with a bad hamstring. But Rockets star James Harden, the NBAs MVP, didnt sound like he would be clamoring for James to come to Houston. I dont think there is a piece that we need to bring in or take away, Harden said. Were great with what we have. Miami is the place where James left Cleveland for once before, and its clear that he still enjoys South Florida. And the rumors about him and the Lakers have swirled for some time, though Lakers President Magic Johnson perhaps offering a word of caution said the rebuild of his team will take two summers. We dont know what people are going to decide to do and we cant control that, Johnson said. So if guys decide not to come here, its not a failure. We turn to next summer. Next summer, if nobody comes and Im still sitting here like this, then its a failure. James isnt looking to fail. But until he decides where he can win, everyone waits.Free agency promises intrigue, and it all starts with LeBron.

Hes in the middle of his prime as one of the games premier players. Paul George (player option): He has one of the best all-around games in the league and is still fairly young at 28. LeBron James (play er option): Still the free-agent grand prize at age 33, James has shown few signs of wear and tear despite 15 stellar seasons in the league. Chris Paul (unrestricted): Among the leagues best point guards even at 33, but hes struggled some with injuries over the years, including a hamstring issue in last years playoffs.BIG MENClint Capela (restricted): Hes emerged as one of the leagues top young big men after averaging 13.9 points, 10.8 rebounds and nearly two blocks per game with the Rockets. Houston surely would like to keep him, but the price tag could be steep. DeMarcus Cousins (unrestricted): He was playing very well for the Pelicans before an Achilles injury ended his season. Questions about his long-term health are real, but hes also a guy who can score 25 points a game if he regains form. DeAndre Jordan (player option): Hell be 30 years old next season, but was still one of the leagues dominant rebounds last season, averaging more than 15 per game.GLUE GUYSTrevor Ariza (unrestricted): Provided solid shoot ing and good defense for the Rockets over the past four seasons. Avery Bradley (unre stricted): Played just 46 games last season due to injury, but is still considered a solid two-way player. Aaron Gordon (restricted): Still just 22 years old, the 6-foot-9 Gordon turned into a productive all-around player for the Magic last season, aver aging 17.6 points and 7.9 rebounds. Marcus Smart (restricted): The Celtics guard is not a great shooter, but can impact the game in many different ways. He averaged 10.2 points, 4.8 assists and 3.5 rebounds last season while playing great defense.SHOOTERSWayne Ellington (unre stricted): Hes emerged as a reliable shooter off the bench for the Heat the past few seasons. He averaged a career-high 11.2 points last years while shooting nearly 40 percent from 3-point range. Doug McDermott (restricted): Mr. McBuckets has turned into a very good role player, staying excellent from 3-point range while improving the other parts of his game. J.J. Redick (unrestricted): Had a solid season for the 76ers, averaging a career-high 17.1 points per game and shooting 42 percent from 3-point range. He just turned 34. Associated Press

He later went on to play at Edward Waters College in Jacksonville. Ruise, though, says he still carries similar coaching principles that Johnson instilled in the past. Just coming in and establishing a relationship with the kids and putting in a good enough work ethic that they understand to (achieve) success you must work hard. Ruise says being a former Timberwolf played a large role in accepting the position. Any way I can continue to give back to the community of Lake City, he said. Its just a welcoming opportunity for me, and I couldnt turn that down for nothing in the world. Ruise, who has relatives in Lake City, can begin preparations for the winter season as he inherits an already finalized 2018-19 recruiting class composed of 12 signees. As an alumnus of the college and a local high school coach for more than 25 years, we think coach Ruise is the perfect fit for our program, FGC president Dr. Lawrence Barrett said in a release. Ruise, who will earn 10K a year, says hell supplement his salary by retaining his teaching position at Baker County. The firstyear coach hopes to eventually join the college as a full-time employee once the athletic budget expands. While hes set to begin his tenure at FGC, he leaves behind quite the legacy at Baker County. Theyve been great for 25 years, Ruise, a 1985 Baker County graduate, said. Its going to be very well-missed there but Ill still be connected. Now I can be a blessing to the communities in a larger scale, so I look forward to that. FGC basketball teams summer workouts are scheduled for next month. Ruise says that the conditioning schedule will remain the same despite the coaching change. Im going to look at what (Fields) had in place and compare it to what I got, and well go head on and do what we need to do. we didnt score, Allen said. I didnt think there was one game we played where we didnt have a turnover defensively. At the end of the day we pride ourselves on that we are a finishing team. Thats why we work so hard. We just didnt finish at the end. Allen was still pleased with the day overall and said several players impressed him on both sides of the ball. All five receivers T.J. Jones, Marquez Bell, Bobby Fulton, Jaden Williams and Lanadrick Bradley made plays for quarterback Jordan Smith throughout the afternoon. Smith has continued to show improvement this the summer as he prepares for his junior season and Wednesday was another example of the chemistry hes developed with his receivers. For (the offense) to be where its at at this point in the season, its scary, Allen said. If were able to give Smith four seconds up front in any contest, those five or six receivers that we have identified as our five or six guys can flat out go. Were going to be able to do some things this season through the air and I really feel confident that our ground game will be good as well. But with it being the end of June and this thing running and operating the way it is right now, it can be special. The defense complemented the offense as well, forcing turnovers throughout the day. Allen said Brandon Scott, Jaylen Brown, Ahmad Williams, Shyheim Brown, Devin Johnson, Derek Johnson and Michael Scippio all stood out. This team has the chance to be as good as they want to be, Allen said. Thats the biggest thing but weve got to continue to not settle for mediocrity at every contest no matter who were playing. That mindset gets built right now in the summertime. When we get to that point we have a chance to be special. Columbias next stop will be the camp at Valdosta State from July 13-15.

The Beavers (54-12-1) were the hottest hitting team throughout the CWS but struggled to convert chances in the finals until they caught their huge break in the ninth inning. They had runners on first and third with none out in the sixth when Kyle Nobach popped up a bunt that Ramage caught. Ramage then threw back to third to double off Grenier, and a groundout ended the inning. Adley Rutschman, who homered in the fourth, singled leading off the Oregon State eighth and was on third after a passed ball. Cronin came on, struck out Tyler Malone and got pinch hitter Steven Kwan to fly out. CWS Continued From 1B
