Data released by the Florida Department of Education said the district has earned that grade for the second year in a row, and for the fifth time since 2010. On an individual school level, for 2018, grades broke down as follows: Columbia High School, RSGA, Melrose, Five Points, Fort White Elementary School, Fort Mayor drove drunk 50-plus times; rejected help: Too busy COURT REPORTGleason Place sold for $18M Witt ordered to get treatment anyway after DUI; faces reprimand from Supreme Court.By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comLake City mayor and local attorney Stephen Witt told a substance abuse evaluator that hed driven under the influence of alcohol on dozens of occasions, but denied having a drinking problem and claimed he had too many professional obligations to attend treatment, court records show. The states high court told him to seek treatment anyway. The Florida Supreme Court in May ordered Witt to sign a treatment contract after the Florida Bar filed a complaint over a drunk-driving incident last year. Witt, whom the court placed on probation for the length of the contract, said he will fully comply. I will do whatever they want me to do, Witt said Friday. Last August, the Bar filed a complaint against Witt just days before he struck a plea deal for driving under the influence in January 2017. The Bar accused Witt of violating multiple rules for minor and criminal misconduct for the incident. Bar officials referred Witt to Florida Lawyers Assistance for a substance abuse evaluation, which took place in May 2017, court records show. During the evaluation, Witt admitted to excessive alcohol use, saying hed tried to quit drinking at least 20 times and had driven under the influence at least 50 times, according to a referees report submitted to the court. The evaluator diagnosed Witt with a moderate alcohol use disorder and recommended a two-year monitoring contract including random testing and support group meetings. A Florida Bar grievance committee voted to recommend diverting the matter to Florida Lawyers Assistance, court records show. Witt rejected the recommendation because he said he does not have a drinking problem, according to the referees report. He admitted to excessive alcohol consumption on the night of the DUI, but claimed that it was an unusual occurrence, the report states. Witt said that with his job 3A Witt COREY ARWOOD/Lake City ReporterTurtle crossingJastin Collings, 12, and dad Damien Collings, both of Lake City, were spotted helping a soft shell turtle cross west U.S. Highway 90 Thursday morning.

Thanks for reading.Woman, 18, faces trafficking, contraband charges for meth New laws set to take effect todayBy JIM TURNERThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE More than 100 bills that Gov. Rick Scott signed into law from the 2018 legislative session will take effect today, including a new state budget that tops $88 billion. Lawmakers sent 195 bills to Scott from the session that ended in March. The governor vetoed two, while signing the rest. Of the signed measures, 105 will hit the books today. Of the remainder, 54 went into effect upon Scotts signature, with the rest effective in October or in 2019. Among the measures slated to take effect today: STATE BUDGET HB 5001: Lawmakers passed an $88.7 billion budget for the 2018-2019 fiscal year. The spending plan increases public-school funding by $101.50 per student, though Democrats and many education offi cials have argued that a far lower amount will be available for basic school expenses. Among other things, the budget will provide $100.8 million for the Florida Forever land preservation program and offer a $130 million increase in Medicaid funding for nursing homes. Lawmakers also included $3.3 billion in reserves and put money into such issues as Everglades restoration, beach restoration, pre-eminent universities and helping universities attract world class faculty. TAX PACKAGE HB 7087. A roughly $170 million tax-cut package provides relief for farmers and property owners impacted by Hurricane Irma, provides a sales-tax holiday in August for back-to-school shoppers and retroactively covers a disaster-preparedness tax holiday in early June that coincided with the start of hurricane season. The package also includes reducing a commercial lease tax from 5.8 percent to 5.7 percent, though that cut will begin Jan. 1. EDUCATION       HB 7055: The law expands the use of vouch er-like scholarships to send more public-school students to private schools. One program in the bill will let students who face bullying or harassment in public schools transfer to private schools. The so-called hope scholarships will be funded by motorists who voluntarily agree to contribute sales taxes they would normally pay on vehicle transactions to fund the scholarships. Among other things, the bill also boosts the Gardiner scholarship program, which pays for services and private-school scholarships for students with disabilities. CHILD MARRIAGE SB 140: The bill will largely block minors from getting married in Florida. In the past, minors ages 16 and 17 have been able to get marriage licenses with parental consent, and judges have had discretion to issue licenses to younger minors if they have children or if pregnancies are involved. Under the change, marriage will generally be barred for people under age 18, though an exception will be in place for 17-year-olds who have written consent from their parents or guardians. Also, the 17-year-olds will not be able to marry people who are more than two years older than them. OPIOIDS HB 21: With Florida facing an opioid epidemic, the measure is aimed at preventing patients from getting addicted to prescription painkillers and then turning to street drugs such as heroin and fentanyl. The bill, in part, will place limits on prescriptions that doctors can write for treatment of acute pain. Doctors in many cases would be limited to writing prescriptions for three-day supplies, though they could prescribe up to seven-day supplies of controlled substances if medically necessary. Cancer patients, people who are terminally ill, palliative care patients and those who suffer from major trauma would be exempt from the limits. The bill also requires physicians or their staff members to check with a statewide database before prescribing or dispensing controlled substances. BETHUNE STATUE SB 472: Lawmakers approved placing a statue of civil-rights leader and educator Mary McLeod Bethune, the founder of what became BethuneCookman University in Daytona Beach, in the National Statuary Hall in Washington, D.C. The statue of Bethune will replace a likeness of Confederate Gen. Edmund Kirby Smith, who has long been one of Floridas two representatives in the hall at the U.S. Capitol. The states other representa tive is John Gorrie, widely considered the father of air conditioning. SLAVERY MEMORIAL HB 67: The measure will lead to building a memorial on the Capitol grounds to honor the untold number of slaves in Florida history. The bill requires the Bates Curlin McIntosh LAWS continued on 6ABy CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comAn 18-year-old woman was being booked into Columbia County Detention Facility on meth-related charges when deputies say they found more drugs in her bra. Kyleigh Ann McIntosh, 18, of Southwest Canterbury Street, had been arrested on charges of trafficking in a controlled substance and possession of paraphernalia after a multi-jurisdictional drug task force on Wednesday raided a home on Northwest White Oak Glen. Deputies added a booking charge of smuggling contraband into a detention facility. McIntosh admitted to owning 23 grams of meth found on a bed and in the basement during the raid, according to a Columbia County Sheriffs Office report. The task force also arrested another occupant, Eugene Bates, 26, of Northwest Jerri Place, after finding three bags of meth in his pocket, the report states. Bates, who faces charges of possession with intent to distribute and possession of paraphernalia, was the only person who didnt agree to answer questions after authorities secured the occupants during the raid. A search of the home yielded several bags of suspected meth and a digital scale, large amounts of cash, glass pipes, syringes, and other assorted paraphernalia, according to the report. Another suspect, Dustin Eric Curlin, 31, of Northwest White Oak Glen, who was not at the home during the raid, was located at a probation office and arrested on a charge of selling a controlled substance, according to the report. Authorities found $129 in Curlins wallet. One of the $20 bills was pre-documented currency from a previous undercover narcotics investigation, the report stated. Drug was found in her bra during booking at jail.2 jailed in generator theftBy CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comTwo men stole a generator from a local construction site Wednesday night and led the construction company owner on a chase, but the suspects were apprehended after they crossed the county line, according to a Columbia County Sheriffs Office report. Phillip Clark Douglas, 19, of Southeast County Road 252, faces a third-degree grand theft charge after deputies say he and Kristopher Jennings of the same address stole a generator from a construction site at the Preserve of Laurel Lakes subdivision. A deputy at around 6:20 p.m. responded to County Road 252 and Troy Road in reference to the theft of a generator at a nearby subdivision, according to the report. The complainant, who owned the construction company, said he witnessed the theft and had been following behind the suspects as they drove down Pinemount Road into Suwannee County. The generator was stolen from a construction site at Southwest Lotus Glen, according to the report. Two male subjects in a gold car drove onto the site and parked behind a house, grabbed the generator from the back porch and placed it into their trunk before fleeing in the vehicle. A neighbor called her husband, who happened to be the owner of the construction company and was the one who followed the fleeing suspects. Douglas Jennings

SU NDAY, J UU LY 1, 2018 LOCAL LAKE CITY REPORTER 3A Gleason Place sold for $18M Project financed in part by taxpayersupplied incentives.By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comA shopping center in the commercial heart of Lake City was sold by the Tennessee-based company that pitched purchase of the land with incentives from local taxpayers two years ago. The sale of the 129,000 square foot shopping center and its 1.3 acre land out parcel was made for $18.5 million, a Friday press release said. A global real estate advisory firm, NKF Capital Markets, brokered the deal for the Chattanooga-based real estate development and investment company, Hutton, and published information about the sale. However, little is known about the buyers. The purchaser of the property was named in a Friday press release as North Lauderdale Associates. However, North Lauderdale Associates is not a listed business with the Florida Secretary of State, according to the state Division of Corporations websites. A Georgia based PR company handled communications for NFK Capital Markets about the sale of Gleason Place. The Wilbert Group account coordinator Liz Maddux said as far as she knew, the stores currently at the location would remain there despite the sale. Nothing will change because the property was purchased as an investment property, Maddux wrote in an email. However, she said more jobs and construction come to the location at some point. As the out parcels are developed, yes, Maddux responded. With offices in the Atlanta area, an NFK senior managing director representing Hutton said the buyer wished to remain unnamed. Hutton has a cache of retail clientele known to rent its properties, and a number of those currently operate at Gleason Place, like Dicks Sporting Good, Ross Dress for Less and Five Below, among others. According to its website it has 1,048 developments with 37 completed projects in Florida, 27 in Alabama, 20 in Georgia and 57 in its home state Tennessee. However, the bulk, 196, are reported in Texas. There were reports in January in Business Wire that Hutton made a 59-property portfolio sale of sites across 14 states for $185.8 million. In June 2016 the Lake City Council approved almost half a million dollars in tax incentives to build Gleason Place. At the time Hutton representative Kevin Jennings said the property was plagued by a sinkhole and had been vacant since 2008. Hutton also approached the county commission for a requested $1.3 million in tax rebates for the property over 10 years, though commissioners initially rejected the request. COURTESYGleason Place, built in part with taxpayer-funded incentives, has been sold to a Broward County company for $18.5 million, according to NN KF C apital Markets, which brokered the deal for Tennessee-based Hutton. New project means less water and money down drainFrom staff reportsThe next time you wash your hands or flush a toilet in one of Lake Citys public restrooms youll be saving water and money, thanks to a recent water conservation project with the Suwannee River Water Management District and City of Lake City. Water conservation is a community effort and every drop saved helps to improve the health of our springs, lakes and rivers, said Hugh Thomas, executive director for the district. Almost 600,000 gallons of water per year will be saved because of the project; which upgraded 104 faucets and 57 toilets to lowflow appliances in all the City of Lake Citys public restrooms. The project, completed in partnership with the District and Florida Department of Environmental Protection, was funded as part of a grant program for just under $100,000. Although low-flow faucets and toilets are not new technologies, the cost to retrofit is often a limiting factor for communities throughout the district, officials say. Grant funding makes these projects possible.

Joe Helfenberger comes on board as City Manager of Lake City at one of the most interesting times in history. I use interesting with the most positive intent possible. It is a great time to lead Lake City. The positives here far outweigh the challenges. Weve studied him from afar and talked with him face to face. Helfenberger is our guy now. Its Joes show at City Hall. Any new candidate for any job always speaks cautiously and tries to say the right things and Helfenberger is doing this, but he has repeatedly said he intends to open his tenure here by gathering facts and listening to learn about what issues residents hold in high regard. Lake City is one of the best small cities in Florida. Hands down. If Joe Helfenberger doesnt already realize this, here it is in print for him. Were good now and climbing fast. Some days were still a quaint small town, some days we have city problems. Issues come with both scenarios, but these issues are mostly growing-pain issues and good problems to have. Think about how many other small towns in Florida would trade places with Lake City and our steady, positive growth. It would seem the City Managers job here would provide the perfect challenge for someone with his experience in midsize municipal government. Helfenberger takes the rein at a time of economic upswing in town. Revenues are up, the city is flush with cash in reserves, it is slowly improving its utilities infrastructure base and an honest, positive demeanor will go a long way toward cleaning up what has been a public relations disaster in the city managers office in recent years. The challenge? Small business owner/operators and commercial property owners in the city limits have been gouged by city government with excessive fees for everything from storm water assessments to fire protection to property tax increases. The current City Council enjoys spending your tax money and does so more each year at budget time and on special projects. This was evident by the 2:1 ratio of city department heads and employees who attended the public meet-and-greet and talked with the new boss. There were a lot of good people and good managers in the room. There were also a few questionable placeholders who may need restructuring and their budgets trimmed. I can promise you this: Joe Helfenberger will have the support of this newspaper on Day 1 and we want him to succeed. Lake City and Columbia County need him to be successful and lead Lake City forward to continued prosperity. Will we always agree with him? No chance. Will we salute him when he succeeds? Absolutely. But, agree or disagree, he will be treated with the same professional courtesy as all other public officials we encounter locally. Helfenbergers actions will set the tenor of our relationship, not us. The Lake City Reporters focus is on Lake City and Columbia County and how both prosper. As we remind you often, we are not the media. If you want that, troll your phone or watch TV. We are your local newspaper, committed to reporting whats going on locally in Lake City and Columbia County. Were also a catalyst for change in this county. Local newspapers get things done. We are pro-business and we support smart development that improves our community at a common-sense pace. We also believe government in all areas should be held accountable, should provide efficient services, keep spending in check and lessen the burden on taxpayers. We all have a role to play in making Lake City stronger tomorrow than it is today. Joe Helfenberger now steps to center stage and we all expect a command performance.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINIONSummer of ThanksgivingNo, we havent mixed up our holidays. We know its Independence Day thats coming on Wednesday, not Thanksgiving. Still, the two have a lot in common, and we humbly suggest an infusion of the latter into the former. Every Fourth of July is also a day of thanksgiving for Americans, grateful to live in a place where you can speak your mind freely and go where you please, explaining yourself, in the process, to nobody. Everyone knows this already, but in the hubbub of backyard barbecues and lowgrade explosives, its easy to lose sight of the source of our pride. It was simply this, a group of 56 men gathered in Philadephia whod just had enough. They staked their lives on standing up to the king. We stake our future on living up to their example. Lets pause, if briefly, in remembrance of their valor and righteous rage, the hot moment that gave birth to a new star in the firmament of human affairs. Thank God for their courage and unflinching faith. Welcome, Joe Helfenberger 1948 CHS Tigers: Loving a loserSometimes when a new football season approaches, like now, I like to take a backward glance at a previous Columbia High Tiger football team. Today that team will be the 1948 team, which lost every game but one, yet never gave up hope of turning their season around. Pre-season the team was expected to be a good but not great team. Depleted by graduation of last years standouts hurt, but it was a 40-0 shellacking by a powerful Leon team in the season-opener where several Lake City starters were seriously injured that started the downhill slide. Fullback Joe Ferguson, everybodys pick for a rising star, ruptured a leg muscle and never regained his health or form. Varsity center Harland Clements, hurt in that first game, never played another minute. Starters Hayward McDonald, Hughell Waldron (both big tackles) and running back Jack Alexander were hurt and never regained full strength. And on and on. And remember, this was one-platoon football. Players had to play offense and defense. In other words, a player never left the field except for injury. So, if you lost a fullback maybe you also lost your linebacker because it was the same player. If you lost a halfback maybe you also lost a defensive back. (Again, same player). If you lost a center, you may have also lost a defensive tackle. Same player. Substitutes became starters. This particularly hurt a team with a small 34-man roster, which through injuries dwindled to just 23. Throughout all the losses, though, the team never stopped practicing hard and the coaches kept coaching hard. They just never gave up. Individually, Bill Page came on to replace Harland Clements and became a hard-hitting linebacker who could stop any back in the league on a dime. Guard Jesse Thomas became the teams best all around interior lineman and Halfback Tommy Ives provided almost all the offensive fireworks single-handedly. Toward the middle of the season, the players and coaches became regular targets of fan criticism. Coach ONeal Hill always took full responsibility for the teams losses and deflected all the criticism of his team to himself. The Tiger team appreciated Coach Hill so much that they, 100 percent of them, wrote and signed a letter, published in the Lake City Reporter, giving their coach their vote of confidence and asking him to remain with the team as their head coach. But it was not to be. In December of 1948 Coach ONeal Hill, a native Lake Citian, a former CHS football star, the 1943 UF Gator team captain, a WWII hero, a man who worked as diligently as any CHS coach ever did to bring his school a winner, resigned and re-entered the United Marine Corps as a captain. I loved every member of that team. How can you not love a team that gets beat up and beat down but keeps on scrapping? They represented the best in Tiger spirit. MORE*Cheerleaders: Dixie Noland (Captain), David Douglass, Mary Virginia Ives, Mary Beth Phillips, Verdie Inman Buie, and Diana (Sissie) Ives. *Team Captains: Joe Ferguson and Bill Page. *Individual honors: Both Bill Page and Jesse Thomas made 2nd team all-conference. Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY On this date: In 1535, Sir Thomas More went on trial in England, charged with high treason for rejecting the Oath of Supremacy. (More was convicted, and executed.) In 1863, the pivotal, three-day Civil War Battle of Gettysburg, resulting in a Union victory, began in Pennsylvania. In 1867, Canada became a self-governing dominion of Great Britain as the British North America Act took effect. In 1912, aviator Harriet Quimby, 37, was killed along with her passenger, William Willard, when they were thrown out of Quimbys monoplane at the Third Annual Boston Aviation Meet. In 1934, Hollywood began enforcing its Production Code subjecting motion pictures to censorship review. In 1940, the original Tacoma Narrows Bridge in Washington state opened to traffic despite concerns over its tendency to bounce in windy conditions, inspiring the nickname Galloping Gertie (four months later, the suspension bridges main section collapsed into Puget Sound). In 1946, the United States exploded a 20-kiloton atomic bomb near Bikini Atoll in the Pacific. In 1995, rock-and-roll disc jockey Wolfman Jack died in Belvidere, North Carolina, at age 57.Morris Williams is a local historian and longtime retired educator.

6A SU NDAY, JUL YY 1, 2018 LOCAL L AA KE CIT YY REPORTER Publix reaches out to help an injured cashierOn Friday afternoon, CCSO posted on Facebook about the Dollar General robbery. Surveillance camera stills show the suspect, whose face is obscured by a hoodie or mask. The suspect was possibly driving a 2010 to 2015 model gray or blue Chevrolet Equinox and drove north on SR 47, according to CCSO. He or she had duct tape covering the tag. Earlier Friday morning, CCSO asked the public for help identifying the Subway robbery suspect, but provided no information about the incident itself. Both cases are still under active investigation, said CCSO spokesperson Murray Smith. It appears to be connected, Smith said. It looks like the same guy or girl, but theyre totally covered up so its hard to tell. Anyone with information can contact dispatch at 719-2005 or CCSO investigator Josh Samson at 758-1095. Information can be also anonymously be provided through Columbia County Crime Stoppers at 754-7099 or via their website, White High School, Niblack and LCMS earned a grade of C, Eastside, Summers, and CCE earned a B, and Westside, Pinemount and Belmont earned an A grade. The overall grade for the district is a composite of these. However, not all individual schools have seen improvement. Of the ones listed above, only RSGA went up a grade. Of the others, Melrose, Eastside, Summers, Niblack, and LCMS all went down a grade, while all the rest stayed at the same grade level from 2017. I am very proud of all the hard work that was done in our district this year, said Superintendent Lex Carswell. The students, teachers and staff of the CCS have worked diligently to perform at their highest level. I look forward to the continued growth and improvement in all areas and at all grade levels. Schools are evaluated in the areas of English Language Arts, mathematics learning, middle school acceleration, graduation rates and others. For more specific information about school grades, visit accountability/accountability-reporting/schoolgrades/. Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart reflected on the information statewide. The school grades announced today are the result of hard work by our students, parents, teachers and leaders, she said in a press release. I am extremely proud that Floridas accountability system continues to ensure all students have access to the high-quality education they deserve and that it prepares them for college, a career and life. The Florida Department of Education calculates school grades annually based on up to 11 components, including student achievement and learning gains on statewide, standardized assessments and high school graduation rate. School grades provide parents and the public an easily understandable way to measure the performance of a school and understand how well each school is serving its students. Statewide, the overall grades break down as follows. than 1,000 A schools (1,027 schools) up from 987 in 2017 and 763 in 2016. The percentage of schools earning an A increased to 32 percent, up from 30 percent in 2016-17. schools earning an A or B grade increased to 58 percent compared to 56 percent last year. maintained an A grade (793 schools) or increased their grade (615 schools) in 2017-18. largest increase in the percentage of schools improving their grade, with 26 percent (115 schools) moving up one or more letter grade. schools decreased by 23 percent (10 schools), from 43 schools in 2016-17 to 33 schools in 2017-18. The statistics also reflect a degree of improvement among schools which have had low performance grades in the previous years. of schools graded F in 2016-17 improved their grade in 2017-18 by one or more letter grade (23 of 24 schools). schools that earned a D or F grade in 2016-17 improved by at least one letter grade in 2017-18 (159 schools). schools in the second or third year of implementing their turnaround plan improved their letter grade (23 schools). In addition to school grades, the department also calculates district grades annually based on the same criteria. their district grade from a B in 2016-17 to an A in 2017-18; their district grade from a C in 2016-17 to a B in 2017-18; their district grade from a D in 2016-17 to a C in 2017-18; 67 school districts are graded A or B, up from 48 in 2016-17; and now graded A in Florida and there are no districts GRADESContinued From 1A ROBBERIESContinued From 1A COURTESY CCSOSurveillance still from the robbery at the Fort White Subway.

McIntosh, a Publix cashier, is hospitalized for injuries and complications stemming from a car accident in April, prompting dozens of customers to ask how shes doing, said store manager Terri Brown. People love and support her, Brown said. McIntosh was invovled in a car accident April 26, leaving her with 16 broken ribs and one of her legs broken in two places. Doctors were unable to perform surgery on her leg due to an issue with her heart, Brown wrote in a note to customers. She has undergone a procedure to repair a hole in her heart, but is currently paralyzed on her left side due to a stroke. McIntosh is now breathing on her own. Seven weeks, after the accident, she was still in intensive care. Its not clear whether shes since been moved to a regular room. McIntosh is known for going out of her way to connect with customers, Brown said, always asking about the latest developments in their lives. Brown recalled one patron whose mother had recently died. Every time McIntosh saw that customer over the next several weeks, McIntosh made a point to ask how she was doing. Shes so sweet and the customers love her so much, Brown said. A GoFundMe page has been set up to benefit McIntosh at and other responsibili ties, it would not be possible for him to comply with the alcohol testing or attend support group meetings, according to the report. On January 27, 2017, the Florida Highway Patrol and Lake City Police Department responded to Lake DeSoto after Witts SUV ended up submerged in water as he was leaving the Elks Lodge, reports show. According to an FHP troopers interview, Witt appeared to be extremely intoxicated. The trooper observed a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from his mouth, according to the Bars complaint. In a statement to FHP, Witt claimed he consumed one alcoholic drink, got into his vehicle, started it, then got back out. After failing to realize he left the vehicle in gear, the vehicle then drove on its own across the street, over the curb and into the lake. But a witness who tried to help Witt at the scene told investigators she found Witt inside the partially submerged vehicle, in the passenger seat, and helped him out before authorities arrived, the complaint states. Witts blood alcohol level was 0.22, nearly three times the legal limit of 0.08, according to FHP. He was criminally charged with a DUI in March 2017. That August, he agreed to a plea deal and accepted probation for that case. As part of the agreement, his drivers license was suspended for six months and he was ordered to complete 50 hours of community service, which could be bought out at a rate of $10 per hour.

Chamber Director Dennille Decker said she expects this years celebration to be a blast just like those before it. It brings out tons of people, said Decker. One of the really neat things about this event is it brings out people and not just to the actual fairgrounds. Gates open at 5 p.m. and the fireworks show is expected to begin around 9:20 on Wednesday night will last for roughly 20 minutes. In the past it has served as occasion for gatherings of fireworks viewers region-wide, with people lining roadsides and family gatherings wherever the spectacle can be viewed.

Before the fireworks, she said there would be live entertainment, food vendors and even some local politicians with booths and promotional information.

Could the rest of team sports be next? The Florida High School Athletic Association is pitching a new playoff system for the states other team sports, with a goal of creating a better competitive balance that will reduce blowouts that have been rampant in state tournaments in recent years. Classifications would be cut from nine to seven for   base ball, boys and girls basketball, softball and girls volleyball,   with power rankings (pos sibly from MaxPreps) replacing enrollment numbers as the criteria for dividing schools into each class. Districts would also be eliminated, with classes replaced by divisions based on the power rankings from the previous two or three seasons (still to be decided). Division I would be composed of the top 64 teams from those ratings regardless of the schools size with all 64 teams advancing to the playoffs. Division II would be made up of teams 65-128 also all making the playoffs while the remaining schools down to the current Class 1A would be divided evenly across Divisions 3-6, which would be about 115-130 schools depending on the sport. Division 7 will be reserved for the rural schools, which is currently Class 1A and holds 600 students or less. Soccer, which was already set to go from five classes to six, would have six divisions. The proposal, if approved, would be for the 2019-20 school year.

He has won two of his last three races. He is spending this weekend at one of his favorite tracks. So yes, life is quite good at the moment. Truex appears to be picking up some momentum as he tries to become the first repeat NASCAR Cup Series champion since Jimmie Johnson won five in a row from 2006 to 2010. He goes for his third consecutive victory at Chicagoland Speedway this Sunday. This track has always been really good for me. Obviously, the last two years, its been really good, said Truex, who turned 38 on Friday. I had to overcome a lot of A C-Deck about the story will go here.Truex Jr. trying for third straight win at ChicagolandBy JAY COHENAssociated PressJOLIET, Ill. Once Kyle Larson got to the top of the track, it was all over. Larson used the high line Saturday at Chicagoland Speedway to pass Kevin Harvick and drive away to a dominant victory in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. You can look at any track where you can run inches off the wall and Ill be faster than anybody, he said. Once the lap times dropped off enough around the bottom I could move up there and go really fast. Riding as high as he could go on the bumpy 1.5-mile oval, Larson passed Harvick with about 60 laps remaining in the 300-mile race. Brandon Jones moved into the top spot when he stayed on the track while the leaders went in for a pit stop, but the caution he needed never materialized and Larson pulled away when Jones finally went into pit road on a really hot day all over the Midwest.

The cheers were so loud for Tiger Woods that no one could hear the starter announce the name of Joel Dahmen when it was his turn to hit. And then it got even rowdier Saturday at the Quicken Loans National with each putt Woods made 12 feet for par, four in a row for birdie, a 25-foot birdie putt on the ninth hole to head to the back nine just two shots out of the lead. Abraham Ancer heard it all in the group ahead, and it carried him into a share of the 54-hole lead. Ancer had the lowest round of his PGA Tour career, an 8-under 62 on the TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm, and wound up atop the leaderboard with Francesco Molinari (65). The crowds were absolutely amazing. Every hole was packed, Ancer said. I just drew on that. I just heard all the roars. He was making a lot of putts on the front nine. The roars were crazy. I just wanted to be one step ahead of him. So it worked out. It worked out even better than that. Ancer, a 27-year-old Mexican, had never been among the top 10 going into the final round in his previous two starts.

By TIM BOOTHAssociated PressSOCHI, Russia Edinson Cavani upstaged Cristiano Ronaldo, first with his head and then with his right foot, and sent Uruguay to the World Cup quarterfinals. Cavani scored twice and Ronaldo none Saturday to give Uruguay a 2-1 victory over Portugal. There was no goal from Ronaldo this time. Everywhere he went, the Portugal great was hounded by two or three Uruguayan defenders. It was Cavani who instead took the spotlight. He combined with Luis Suarez to compete a series of precision passes to give Uruguay the early advantage with a header in the seventh minute. And after Portugal equalized on Pepes header in the 55th minute, it was Cavani again finishing a perfect Uruguay counter in the 62nd with a shot from just inside the penalty area that caught Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patricio slightly out of position and curled inside the far post. The truth is, it was really exciting, Cavani said. There arent words to describe this. Cavani now has three goals at the World Cup, but limped off in the 70th minute with an apparent injury and had to be replaced. He was helped to the sideline with his arm around Ronaldos back. Uruguay, a two-time champion that reached the semifinals at the 2010 World Cup, will next face France on Friday in Nizhny Novgorod. Ronaldo had one clean shot the entire 90 minutes and it came in the opening moments of the match, directly into the arms of Uruguay goalkeeper Fernando Muslera. His shadows were Uruguay defenders Diego Godin and Jose Maria Gimenez, who know Ronaldo quite well from their clashes between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid in the Spanish league. Ronaldo was involved somewhat in Portugals goal, even if he didnt come close to getting a touch on the cross. Ronaldo ran in front of Pepe and drew the attention of both Gimenez and Godin. Pepe came in behind and Uruguay finally surrendered its first goal of the tournament in the 55th minute.

The quick-footed French teenager scored two goals in a five-minute span of the second half to help his team rally for a 4-3 victory over Argentina. Saturdays victory gave France a spot in the World Cup quarterfinals. Messi, who turned 31 during his fourth and possibly final World Cup, set up a pair of goals but again failed to score in a knockout match at the biggest event in soccer. Mbappe got his two in his first attempt. Of course, as Ive already and always said, in the World Cup you have all the top level players so it is an opportunity to show what you can do and what your abilities are, said Mbappe, who now has three goals in Russia. There is no better place than a World Cup. Mbappe was a constant threat to Argentinas creaking defense with his speed and skill and was at the heart of Frances often-breathtaking display, particularly in the middle of the second half. He became the second teenager to score multiple goals in a knockout match at the World Cup. Pele was the other, doing it twice at 17 at the 1958 tournament in Sweden. It is flattering to be the second one after Pele but lets put things in context. Pele is another category, Mbappe said. But its good to be among the players to score in knockout matches. With the score 2-2, Mbappe got his first goal with a cool finish from a tight angle in the 64th minute, his low shot going under Argentina goalkeeper Franco Armani. Four minutes later, he slotted past Armani again after he was put through on goal by a deft pass from Oliver Giroud. Mbappe also helped France to its first goal. Following a sustained period of early pressure, he won a penalty after a 40-meter burst of speed that ended with him being brought down by Marcos Rojo. Antoine Griezmann then scored from the spot in the 13th minute, sending Armani the wrong way. Our team is much younger, but we are there. We answered the call, France coach Didier Deschamps said. It was not easy because we were leading and then there was an equalizer. Then they led 2-1, but we kept fighting. There is an excellent mentality in this group and we did everything to go further. We couldnt miss it and we did win it. Mbappe was born a few months after France won the 1998 World Cup at home, its only title at the tournament. Deschamps was the captain of that team and Zinedine Zidane scored two goals in the final. People remember more the World Cup victory than the year I was born, Mbappe said. It is normal (because) it was the time we were World Cup winners, so that is obviously what they remember. France will next face Uruguay in the quarterfinals on Friday in Nizhny Novgorod. Blaise Matuidi will miss the match after receiving a second yellow card of the tournament. Argentina briefly took the lead in the 48th minute at Kazan Arena, but France defender Benjamin Pavard equalized nine minutes later with a superb strike from outside the area. It is too soon to analyze concrete mistakes we might have made, Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli said. I am sure there might have been mistakes. Argentina got its goals from Angel Di Maria, Gabriel Mercado and late substitute Sergio Aguero. Messi set up the latter two, first sending a shot on goal that Mercado deflected into the net in the 48th. With time winding down, Messi gave Argentina a bit of hope with a cross to the left that Aguero headed into goal in stoppage time. For Argentina, it was the first time the team has scored three goals in a competitive match and lost. For Messi, it means he still has never won a major international title with Argentina.WORLD CUPCavani scores twice, Uruguay ousts Ronaldo and Portugal

SU NDAY, JULY 1, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER 3B OUTDOORSFabulous freshwater fishingHunter safety internet-completion courses will be offered next monthCOURTESY PHOTOSTommy Rhoden of Baker County casts Beetle Spins for Largemouth Bass at Palestine Lake. Charlotte McIntyre of Sanderson displays two of the dozen or so Bluegills she caught with her husband Mike at Ocean Pond. By MONTY STEPHENSSpecial to the ReporterIts early summer and freshwater fishing in north Floridas lakes and rivers is getting really good. Target species are bass and brim. I spoke with several fishermen/fisherwomen who made great catches. For advice to fellow anglers, they all recommend getting an early start. When the sun gets overhead, the fishing slows down. Most anglers are headed back to the boat ramp by 10 a.m. or so. Two lakes in our area with great potential are Ocean Pond and Palestine Lake. Ocean Pond is a two-mile wide lake surrounded by the Osceola National Forest just off of Highway 90, east of Lake City. This lake is a haven for campers and recreational water sports. It is one of the best lakes in our area for waterskiing. But because of its large size, it is not hard to find some quiet areas for fishing. The fishing at Ocean Pond is surprisingly good all year round. Palestine Lake is 10 miles or so south of Ocean Pond on State Road 231. This lake is also large and is arguably one of the most beautiful lakes in our area. It has numerous large Cypress trees along its edge. This lake is purely a fishing lake and other than a lodge on its north side used by the Scouts, there are no other signs of civilization. Lots of Jacks (Chain Pickeral) are present and will ambush your lure before a bass gets it. Palestine Lake is not known for giving up large numbers of catches for bass, but the bass caught will be sizable. Fishing pressure at this lake is very low. Die-hard bass fishermen will certainly be throwing artificial lures. Plastic worms are the number one lure of choice because pthey can be rigged weedless. When the fish are biting, most anglers will agree that color is not important. But a rule of thumb is to use dark colored lures on bright days and light colored lures on cloudy days. Other artificial lure choices are topwater plugs, jigs and crankbaits. A type of jig called bass frogs are really effective at both of these lakes because they are relatively weedless and can fished like a top water lure. Use a weighted hook with a screw eye to hold the frog in place. This probably is the lure to use when making your first cast of the day in heavy grass. Natural baits are also a great choice. A cricket fished below a bobber is always a great choice for brim. Fish around the edges of the grass. If a brim is caught, gently drop the anchor and stay in that area. These fish tend to school up. Earthworms are another good choice for bass and brim. Shiners always work well and are another top choice for bass. But a shiner also attracts mudfish and is prone to get ambushed by a fish of another species before a bass can get it. Enjoy the 4th of July holiday this upcoming week. Enjoy the outdoors, stay safe and look out for your fellow anglers to make sure they are safe. North Florida is a great area for outdoors activities, so share your experience with your family. FWC


4B LAKE CITY REPOR TER SPORTS SUNDAY, JULY 1, 2018 IN BRIEFLAUREL, MISS.Miss. baseball league continuing, seeks money A south Mississippi semipro baseball league aimed at black players says it will continue playing as it seeks to raise money.

Vegas had nearly $30 million to spend going into the weekend, according to, trailing only the New York Islanders by about $2 million. The Golden Knights seem set up for major moves if general manager George McPhee wants to bolster the second-year team with free agents. Vegas didnt appear to have a shot at landing the top prize on the market John Tavares. But the Golden Knights may make a run at some other available veterans to help increase their chances of competing at a championship level again next season. Players such as James van Riemsdyk and Paul Stastny would t in up front with a team that stunningly exceeded expectations during the franchises inaugural season. EASTBOURNE, EnglandWozniacki earns her second Eastbourne title Top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki won the Eastbourne International for the second time by beating Aryna Sabalenka of Belarus in straight sets for her 29th career WTA title on Saturday. Wozniacki, who was runner-up last year, triumphed 7-5, 7-6 (5) in just under two hours, sealing the match with a backhand down the line. Second-ranked Wozniacki was made to work by No. 45 Sabalenka, who served for both sets.KILDEER, ILL.So Yeon Ryu takes 3-stroke lead in KPMG Womens PGA So Yeon Ryu broke away on the closing holes Saturday at Kemper Lakes to take a three-stroke lead in the KPMG Womens PGA Championship. The 28-year-old South Ko rean star birdied the 14th and 15th holes to jump ahead of Canadian Brooke Henderson and nished with a birdie on 18. She shot a 5-under 67 on another scorching afternoon to get to 11-under 205 and move a step closer to her third major victory. Henderson was second. She bogeyed Nos. 14 and 16 in a 70.

Williams is returning to the grass-court tournament for the first time since 2016 after missing it last year while pregnant. She gave birth to a daughter in September. She is ranked outside the top 150, but the All England Club decided to seed her 25th based on past success, which includes collecting seven of her 23 Grand Slam singles trophies at Wimbledon. Williams first-round opponent when play begins on Monday will be 107th-ranked Arantxa Rus of the Netherlands, who has one career tour title. Williams is competing for the first time since she pulled out of the French Open ahead of a fourthround showdown against five-time major champion Maria Sharapova in early June, citing an injured chest muscle. That was Williams return to Grand Slam action after a 16-month absence. Rus has only once been as far as Wimbledons third round, back in 2012. That was the last time she won a match at the All England Club. She was beaten in the first round of qualifying a year ago, as were both of the women Williams could meet in the second round, 136th-ranked qualifier Viktoriya Tomova of Bulgaria and 167th-ranked wild-card recipient Tereza Smitkova of the Czech Republic. Svitolina has only once been as far as the fourth round. Williams possible fourthround opponent, 2017 U.S. Open runner-up Madison Keys, made one quarterfinal appearance, while the 36-year-old Americans potential quarterfinal foe, reigning Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki, has never been beyond the fourth round. Williams could face her older sister, five-time champion and 2017 runner-up Venus, in the semifinals. The ninth-seeded Venus Williams opens against 62nd-ranked Johanna Larsson of Sweden, who is 0-7 at Wimbledon. The Williams sisters are not in the doubles draw. They have won 14 Grand Slam titles as a pair, including six at Wimbledon. In the top half of the womens singles bracket, the quarterfinals could be French Open champion Simona Halep vs. two-time Wimbledon winner Petra Kvitova, and defending champ Garbine Muguruza vs. No. 6 Caroline Garcia. In the bottom half, No. 2 Wozniacki was drawn to face Svitolina, while 2017 U.S. Open champion Sloane Stephens could play No. 7 Karolina Pliskova. The potential mens quarterfinals in the top half are eighttime champion Roger Federer vs. 2017 U.S. Open runner-up Kevin Anderson, and 2014 U.S. Open champion Marin Cilic vs. No. 6 seed Grigor Dimitrov. In the bottom half of the bracket, it could be two-time Wimbledon winner Rafael Nadal vs. 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro, and No. 4 Alexander Zverev vs. No. 7 Dominic Thiem. Two-time champion Andy Murray will face 48th-ranked Benoit Paire in the first round. Its a rematch of Murrays fourthround victory over the Frenchman at the All England Club in 2017. That was Murrays last win before he sat out nearly a year because of an injured hip that was surgically repaired in January. He returned to action last week and so is ranked only 156th and unseeded at Wimbledon, which he won in 2013 and 2016. Murray could face 26th-seeded Denis Shapovalov of Canada in the second round. The top-seeded Federers opening opponent on Monday will be 57th-ranked Dusan Lajovic of Serbia. Their only previous meeting anywhere came in Wimbledons second round last year, when Federer won in straight sets en route to the title. No. 2 seed Nadal, whose 17 Grand Slam titles trail only Federers 20 among men, faces 129th-ranked Dudi Sela of Israel on Tuesday. Nadal has won both of their previous matchups. Mens first-rounders to keep an eye on include Dimitrov against three-time major champion Stan Wawrinka, who is still working his way back into form after knee surgery; 12-time major champ Novak Djokovic against Australian Open quarterfinalist Tennys Sandgren of the U.S.; and No. 23 Richard Gasquet against Gael Monfils in a matchup of Frenchmen.

6B LAKE CITY REPOR TER SPORTS SUNDAY, JULY 1, 2018 North Florida. I probably talked to 15 or 20 coaches about it (Thursday), Columbia baseball coach Brian Thomas said. First thing, I think this issue is going to be dead in the water because there are going to be too many vocal coaches, especially the older guys that still have a lot of time left in the game and are very well thought of, that if this change comes about theyre going to walk away and I dont think the FHSAA wants that based on what theyre saying were going to do. Theres plenty of concern from coaches and schools over the rating system as well. If the FHSAA rolls with MaxPreps for its rankings, theyll be using a company based in California that rarely, if ever, sees any of the teams. That means rankings would be solely based on stats and results that coaches input on the site for their teams. Thats raised several questions for coaches. I think what the issue becomes for a lot of guys is, youre leaving it to a company in California who you send your stats to rank your team in Florida, Thomas said. How is that a viable thing? You havent seen us play so whom are you gathering your information from? Are you going to have a board of coaches in the state of Florida thats going to aid you in this? Or are you just going to do this randomly through the computer like they used to with NCAA football where the human factor is completely taken out of it? The FHSAA wants to level the playing field across its sports, which saw many lopsided scores in its championship games this past year. Just in boys basketball, six of the nine state championship games were won by double digits this year, including three by 25 points or more. By lowering the numbers of classifications from nine to seven and pairing schools together via talent level, the FHSAA believes it would accomplish its goal, especially in an era where kids transfer yearly and have multiple options for school.   I dont know if I exactly like it, Columbia boys basketball coach/ athletic director Steve Faulkner said. I think that I agree with their assessment that something needs to be done. Ive been coaching basketball in the state for almost 18 years now and been to Lakeland (for the state tournament) pretty much every year. Its gotten bad down there as far as turnout down there, the interest level is down and I think that its become too watered down because we have too many classifications so I think something needs to be done.   Im not sure if this, in my opin ion, is the answer because I think youre relying on something like MaxPreps, which I dont know if thats the thing we want to rely on because I know based on this moment right now theres still some coaches in the state that dont put their stuff into MaxPreps like theyre supposed to. The FHSAA could still go with a different ratings system if the proposal passes. The organization recently said it might look into different rankings setup or create its own like it did with football. Football currently uses a points system that factors in wins, losses and strength of schedule. The other sports would do the same if the measure passes. The past school year saw football use its system for the first time, with Class 5A-8A still holding districts while Class 1A-4A were regions only. That, in the eyes of those in Columbia County, would be a better route to take. I really thought they were going to push that style instead of the one theyre pushing for now with divisions, Fort White athletic director John Wilson said. But they are now going to another step that I did not perceive to see before. It is mind-boggling to a point that your boys basketball team could be in one division and your girls could be in another division and they would play completely different people. My conjecture is, were so used to how big a school you are you end up playing the same type people year in and year out so you know what youre dealing with. Wilson, Faulkner and Thomas were also all in agreement that they would like to see the state separate public schools from private schools, though that idea appears off the table for now. The three also echoed the importance of keeping districts to place some importance on the regular season instead of throwing everybody into the postseason, as would be the case in Divisions I and II. The proposal is set to go to the FHSAAs board of directors for discussion in September with a vote scheduled for October. Faulkner hopes the FHSAA ultimately goes a different route, one where the regular season would still matter. I dont understand why they just dont go to kind of what football is doing. Something like that to me works, Faulkner said. You still have a district and you still play for a district title because to me a district championship means something. There are only a handful of state champions each year. But if a kid plays here for four years and wins a district championship, thats an important thing.   This school as a whole has four district titles in boys basketball since 1967 so thats a special thing for some schools. I know some get blessed and win it every year or every other year but thats not everybody. I think it kind of diminishes it. Imagine if the NCAA Tournament had no conference champions and thats essentially what it is. It doesnt make sense why you would eliminate that. Why wouldnt you do something to still incorporate that? Im just not sure this is the solution. There have already been a few changes passed for athletics in the state of Florida for next year. For football in Classes 1A-4A, playoff teams per region were increased from four to six teams, with the top two seeds receiving a first-round bye. In baseball, the one-game-perweek playoff format for regionals was eliminated after receiving criticism from coaches over the past two seasons. That was allowing teams to ride their ace pitcher all the way to the state tournament, where teams then played back-toback days and were forced to start a kid that hadnt thrown in a month. The new schedule will have Class 1A-4A play regional semifinals on a Tuesday and then the regional finals on a Friday. Class 5A-9A will play regional quarterfinals, semifinals and finals on a WednesdaySaturday-Tuesday schedule. er with a World Golf Championship among his credentials, overcame a few putts he missed from short range to close with two birdies to join Ancer at 13-under 197. Ryan Armour (68) and Zac Blair (66) were two shots behind. Woods lost all momentum on the back nine by missing two birdie chances inside 10 feet, taking a bogey on a short par 4 and then driving just through the green on the reachable 14th to 18 feet, chipping strong to 8 feet and missing another birdie chance. He had to settle for a 68 and was six shots behind, making this the seventh straight tournament he has been at least five shots behind going into the final round. It sure didnt sound that way, and for most of the round, it didnt look that way. It was frustrating because I played better than what my score indicates, Woods said I thought that 10 under would have been a good score for me to end up at for the day, and I could have easily gotten that today on the back nine. The nine players ahead of him have combined for just five (official) PGA Tour victories. That includes Molinari, a five-time winner in Europe who is No. 17 in the world. He won the HSBC Champions in Shanghai in 2010, before the PGA Tour recognized it as an official victory. The Italian is playing at the National and plans to be at the John Deere Classic in two weeks, even though the European Tour is in the meat of its summer schedule with national opens in France, Ireland and Scotland leading up to the British Open. Molinaro is currently among qualifiers for the Ryder Cup team, but his FedEx Cup standing is at No. 123. Hes making the most of his first trip to the TPC Potomac. Even though he missed a few short putts on the front nine, he closed with a 30-foot birdie putt on the par-3 17th and hit wedge into 5 feet for birdie at the 18th. Its where I want to be, Molinari said, referring more to his position on the leaderboard than in heat approaching 100 degrees. I would have been happy with even 11 or 12 under. The main thing today was to stay close to the leader, so Ive done a very good job of that. Tomorrow I just need to go out and do my best, hit as many good shots as possible and see if that would be enough. Ancer was tied for the lead after the opening round at the Memorial, which is the only other time he has been atop the leaderboard after any round on the PGA Tour. Conditions have been changing since the opening round with so much sun, no rain and fairways that are getting faster. That was more bothersome to Ancer than the heat. I grew up in Mexico, in the north part of Mexico where its very hot, he said. Didnt bother me. I would rather play in this than cold weather. The course certainly has everyones attention. Woods found that out the hard way with three shots from the rough that sailed some 30 yards over the green, leading to bogeys. You have to hit it good. Theres no way around it, Ancer said. Armour shared the 36-hole lead with Beau Hossler and Brian Gay, who both failed to break par. Hossler shot a 71 and was five shots behind, while Gay had a 72. Rickie Fowler, the only player from the top 10 in the world at the TPC Potomac, had a 69 and was eight shots behind. NATIONAL Continued From 1B because of an unapproved tire change after qualifying. It was his second win in three starts on the Xfinity Series this season, joining his victory at Las Vegas in March. Harvick finished second, and Cole Custer was third after also starting at the back of the field due to a tire issue. It was the fifth consecutive top-five finish for Custer, who moved into the lead in the series standings by three points over Daniel Hemric. We probably were the best car out there. I think Kyle Larsons probably just the best driver at Chicago, Custer said. It was a little bit hard to catch him once he started running the top. Daniel Suarez and Hemric rounded out the top five. Elliott Sadler was sixth and dropped into third in the series after beginning the weekend on top of the standings. The temperature was in the 90s for most of the day, and it soared well into triple-digits inside the cars. Ice bags were almost as popular as new tires at each pit stop. Harvick asked his crew for a smaller, sandwich-sized bag when he was unable to fit a large bag in his suit, and he splashed cold water on his face at one point. Water and ice and a towel down here at the start/finish line, Larson requested after his 10th career Xfinity victory Chase Elliott pulled himself halfway out of his car and sat in the window with his head resting on the roof for a short while. He then walked to an ambulance and went to the infield care center for fluids. It was a rough one, for sure, he said. One of the hotter days I can remember. The 25-year-old Larson felt his No. 42 ENEOS Chevrolet was in bad shape after practice on Friday, and he praised his team for its extensive work. He moved in front for the first time about 70 laps into the 200lap race. Crew chief Mike Shiplett said they used one of the practice sessions for testing and it didnt work out how they planned. We basically just put the car back to our normal package that we run on mile-and-a-halfs, on these low-grip tracks that he runs up against the wall, he said. That worked out quite well for Larson and company. Tyler Reddick started in front after Larsons tire problem, and then won the first stage. But he had a slow pit stop and was penalized for speeding into pit road before he was knocked out of contention by a wreck. Justin Allgaier, an Illinois native who won the Chicagoland Xfinity Series race in September, finished seventh. He was trying for his second straight victory after winning at Iowa on June 17. issues here both years it seems like to be able to get the win. Thats kind of neat looking back on our two races here, what we had to overcome to win. This year is going to be different, I think. Truex had to deal with a completely unraveled tire on his way to the Chicagoland victory in 2016. He had an early pit-road penalty last year, but he led for 75 laps and finished more than 7 seconds ahead of second-place Chase Elliott. Truex and the rest of the Cup Series face a different challenge on this visit to the bumpy 1.5mile oval. Chicagoland was being staged in September as NASCARs playoff opener, but it has a mid-summer date this season and the forecast calls for temperatures in the 90s. Grips been tough to find this weekend for a lot of guys, Truex said Saturday. New tires as well, so I mean theres a lot of new things going on. Its definitely going to be tougher, I would imagine that the grooves going to be probably on average a little bit higher than when we run here in the fall. I think more guys are going to get the top working. Its definitely going to be different, but how much its hard to say right now. Truex is coming off a win last weekend at Sonoma, outdueling Kevin Harvick on the road course for his third victory of the season in his Furniture Row Racing Toyota. He also won at Pocono on June 3, holding off a hardcharging Kyle Larson. Truex, Harvick and Kyle Busch have combined for 12 wins in the first 16 races on the Cup Series. The only other winners this season are Austin Dillon, Clint Bowyer and Joey Logano. With his three victories, Truex could use the rest of the summer to experiment with his car ahead of the playoffs. But Truex called that strategy a little bit overblown. The experimentation thing I think is something that is more old school, he said. This day and age you want to have confidence in the things youre doing and continue to do them. So thats kind of the approach well take. Here are a few more things to watch in the Cup Series return to Chicagoland: JIMMIES SEASON: Johnson is still looking for his first win this season, and Chicagoland is one of three tracks on the Cup Series schedule where he is without a victory. He finished second in 2004, 2008 and 2012. But the track also is the site of his only win in 83 starts on the XFinity Series. He has 83 Cup wins, one away from matching Hall of Famers Bobby Allison and Darrell Waltrip. REMEMBERING JASON: A couple drivers were planning to pay tribute to Jason Johnson, a sprint car driver who died last weekend at age 41 following a crash at Beaver Dam Raceway in Wisconsin. Larson said he will have a Forever 41 sticker in place of where his name would be on his car. KEEPING THE FAITH: Daniel Suarez finished 15th last weekend at Sonoma. He is 19th in the season standings and needs to get going to make the playoffs, but he remains confident. Were going to make it. I will tell you that, he said. TRUEX JR.

The owner of Lake City Hotels, a local hotel management company, confirmed he had a new franchise on the way to manage. Nick Patel said theres a Hilton brand hotel under construction at the site near I-75, exit 427. Were changing the landscape of the exit, said Patel. The westside of the interchange is getting better and better everyday. He said it is the previous site of a Holiday Inn, which was located there about 20 years ago. Crews have already built a portion of the hotel and construction has been present at the site for months. Patel said its a franchise in Hiltons new Tru line. This is the third Hilton product, Patel said. He said finalizing the project took a few years. The hotel is being built off Centurion Way across from a newly constructed Dennys. The development project, which appeared before the Columbia County Commission in 2016, is called Gate Way Crossing. The company behind the development is Centurion Southeast, LLC. The project was designated $255,000 in incentives for the 28 acre development. Both the Dennys and the Circle K currently operating off Highway 90 are part of the project. There are 10 total lots on the projects prospect site maps with about five remaining and one of those is a wooded one and a half acre lot. With over 100,000 square-feet of retail space, GateWay Crossing, is positioned in the heart of North Central Floridas growth corridor providing locals and visitors alike an accessible shopping and dining experience in Lake City, Florida, according to promotional material for the project. Gateway Crossing (GWC) is designed to include QSRs (quick service restaurants), full service restaurants, service retail, in-line retail, big box retailers and/or multi-screen cinema. Patel said the new hotel would be five stories with 115 rooms and an exterior pool. A millenium generation will love the hotel, Patel said. It has a pool-table and a colorful lobby. Tru by Hilton is a very hot product, approximately 400 franchises have been signed, he said. The goal of Hilton Corporation is to make this the largest hotel brand in the country in the next ten years. Patel said hes managed hotels in the area for almost 25 years, and the latest hotel is undergoing its second year of development.

2C LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, JULY 17, 2018When your hobby turns a profitDear Dave, Im retired, and in the past few years Ive taken up painting. This hobby has begun bringing in more money than I expected. I was wondering at what point I should start thinking about separating my art money from my personal finances, and look at officially starting a little business. Pat Dear Pat, Id do it now. A hobby that makes money is called a business. Hearing this is scary to some people, but starting a small business doesnt have to be complicated. You can go to your bank, and using your Social Security number, open a sole proprietor checking account. Title the account with your full name, then DBA doing business as and the name of your business. All your art income goes into that account, and any expenses paid where your painting is concerned comes out of that account. After the income goes in, and the expenses come out, whats left is profit. Thats what youll end up paying taxes on. Also, youll be required to do quarterly estimates and send them to the IRS if you make more than $640 in a quarter. Always remember to always hold back 25 percent for taxes, too, in a separate savings account just for this purpose. This is really cool, Pat. I think youre on the verge of being very successful! Dave Dear Dave, Ive been following your teachings for a while, and Ive noticed you advise people to get things in writing when dealing with creditors. Usually, it seems like youre talking about credit cards and things like that when this is mentioned. I finally made my last student loan payment the other day. Do you think it would be a good idea to request a formal statement saying my student loan debt has been completely paid off? Andrea Dear Andrea, Following up on paid-off debts is always a good idea. It wouldnt hurt to write, and request formal, written confirmation that everything is paid in full. You can do this through email, so youll have a record of contact, or you can send a certified letter return receipt request ed through the postal system. That way, youll have a record they received the letter and signed for it. It sounds like you spent a lot of time paying off your student loans. After an experience like that, you dont want to have to deal with greedy or dishonest collectors hounding you years down the road, and no way to prove youre free and clear. Congratulations on finally kicking your student loan debt to the curb, Andrea! It feels awesome, doesnt it?

The new Gainesville office, which officially opened on June 11, is located at 4200 SW 34th Street #A, Gainesville. The new banking office features a full array of retail and commercial banking and residential mortgage lending services, staffed by bankers with years of experience in Alachua County.

Its shares have been beaten down due to competitive pressures and uncertainty surrounding its planned merger with Time Warner. Of course, as a stocks price falls, its dividend yield rises, and AT&Ts payout recently yielded a fat 6.2 percent. Better still, that payout is likely to increase in the future, as AT&T has boosted its dividend for 34 years in a row. AT&T generated roughly $18.3 billion in free cash flow over the trailing-12-month period. Its robust cash flow generation is likely to continue, thanks to its being an Internet of Things (IoT) platform provider and its strong positions in the still-reliable wireless service and video businesses. (The company will soon be rolling out its 5G network.) With the merger with Time Warner recently completed, AT&Ts longterm prospects are even better. The union will create one of the worlds leading entertainment producers, open up new service bundling opportunities and allow for the combined company to use AT&Ts strength in the mobile and internet spaces to get better advertising rates for Time Warner networks and content. AT&T is the second-largest wireless carrier in the U.S., and the nations top wireline and pay-TV service provider. Those businesses give it a wide defensive moat against its potential challengers. Give the company some consideration for your long-term portfolio. rffThe Wrong StockMy dumbest investment was when I trusted a day trader to execute an order to buy $10,000 worth of Apple at $27 per share. Instead, he bought shares of another company, which immediately went bye-bye. The guys boss? He stood behind this bozo. The lesson I learned is: Dont trust anyone working with your money. If you dont take care of your own business, then someone else will. I., online The Fool Responds: If it was really a day trader who was managing your money, you probably would have done poorly, regardless. Day traders are known for buying and selling frequently, which racks up commission charges and has any gains taxed at generally higher tax rates. More important, day traders are known for losing money. No less an authority than the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has warned: Day traders typically suffer severe financial losses in their first months of trading, and many never graduate to profit-making status. If youd owned Apple stock for only a few hours or days, you would have lost out on a heck of a lot of future growth. Consulting financial professionals is fine, but as you concluded, its best to stay in control of your own money and do your own research and thinking, too, as no one has your best interests at heart as much as you do. Market Share, ExplainedQWhats market share? M.R., Venice, FloridaAIt refers to the percentage of a market that a product, service or company commands, and its a useful measure to track when researching companies or industries.Think about smartphones, for example. If many of your friends use iPhones, you might assume that Apple enjoys the highest market share in the category. But actually, as of the end of March, Samsung had that honor, with a 20.5 percent global share; followed by Apple, with 14.1 percent; and the Chinese company Huawei, with 10.4 percent. (That means that 20.5 percent of smartphones sold worldwide in the last quarter were Samsung devices.) Its also good to pay attention to trends and growth rates. Apple may be in second place, but it gained share from the end of 2017 to the end of March 2018, rising to that 14.1 percent from 13.7 percent. Samsungs share shrank from 20.8 percent to 20.5 percent. As another example, the U.S. market share leader in ice cream brands last year was private label brands, with 20 percent of the market, followed by Breyers, with 9.2 percent; Ben & Jerrys, with 8.7 percent; and Haagen-Dazs, with 8.4 percent.***QWhy cant I find stock listings in the newspaper on Mondays? C.C., SeattleAThe stock markets in America are closed on weekends, so there is no action to report on Mondays. Dont think you have to follow stocks daily moves, though. Its more important to keep up with how a company is performing than how its stock is moving. Great fortunes can be amassed by buying into companies youve researched well and believe in and then simply hanging on for the long term.Want more information about stocks?

Florida financial official plans oversight of cryptocurrencyBy MARCO SANTANAOrlando SentinelJimmy Patronis, the Florida state chief financial officer, said Tuesday that he will hire a state regulator who would focus on oversight of cryptocurrency. Cryptocurrencies operate independently of a central bank, using digital encryption to create units of currency that customers can purchase individually or in groups. The value of such currencies fluctuates, similar to how a companys stock can rise and fall minute by minute. In recent years, cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin have been extremely volatile. The person appointed to Patronis as-yet-untitled position would explore how laws that govern securities and insurance apply to cryptocurrencies and initial offerings. Those offerings occur when units of virtual currencies are made available to investors. We cannot allow the cryptocurrency industry to expand in Florida unfettered and unchecked with the potential for so many, including our large population of seniors, to be exploited, Patronis said in a statement. By taking an active, comprehensive and balanced approach, our state will provide an appropriate level of scrutiny for emerging digital asset technologies. Patronis could not be reached for comment. His statement did not when the position would be created or how it would be filled. Patronis was appointed chief financial officer by Gov. Rick Scott in June 2017 and is running for election in November. His opponent, former state Sen. Jeremy Ring, said Patronis plan is hollow and reeks of a campaign stunt. Ring, one of the first employees at Yahoo, says the federal government should govern cryptocurrency, not a state financial agency. If you understand the technical aspects of cryptocurrency, it needs to be something that the federal government wraps their arms around, Ring said. I dont think they understand the crypto world. Ring also said that any state effort to watch over cryptocurrency should be led by the attorney general rather than the CFO. The crash that is occurring now is a lot like the crash that happened to the early internet companies, he said. But, ultimately, what came out of it was good companies like Google, Facebook and Amazon. Bundt cake tantrum could cost Florida city manager his $204,000 jobBy SUSANNAH BRYANSun SentinelSometimes you just really want a Bundt cake. But one Florida official may have let his craving get the best of him. Sunrise City Manager Richard Salamon had a fit when a local baker refused to honor his coupon for a free cake. Now the $3.99 deal could cost him his $204,000-a-year job. The top boss at Sunrise City Hall got nasty when told his coupon for the free mini Bundt had expired, the co-owner of Nothing Bundt Cakes told commissioners Tuesday night. Dannie Augustin said Salamon came into the Sunrise bakery a few weeks ago and asked her employee to break the rules and honor the coupon. When she refused, Salamons wife blasted the bakery on Facebook. Salamon, who could not be reached for comment Thursday, stayed mum on the dais while commissioners debated the matter. At least one commissioner, Mark Douglas, is calling for Salamons resignation. Another, Larry Sofield, says the coupon kerfuffle might have cost Salamon the respect of his employees. Commissioners have set a special meeting for July 5 to discuss the city managers future. Salamon, who joined the city more than 25 years ago, took over as city manager in January 2015. I cant believe a $4 coupon has got us here today, Sofield said. This is a little bit of a black eye on us. This is not what we are about at all. Jessica J.

Heres how to save the Detroit auto showBy MARK PHELANDetroit Free PressGerman luxury brands didnt make the North American International Auto Show, and they cant break it. Keep that in mind as the Detroit Auto Dealers Association considers new dates and other changes for the show thats become one of Detroits signature events and biggest moneymaking businesses. The panic this year when Mercedes, BMW and Audi said they wouldnt introduce new vehicles at the 2019 show is the outward evidence of a question all the worlds leading auto shows are asking themselves: Do we still matter? The answer is that nobody knows, and we probably wont be sure for a few years. Till then, auto shows that have thrived for more than a century are holding their breath. This is an auto-show issue, not a Detroit issue, IHS Markit senior analyst Stephanie Brinley said. Automakers have more choices than ever before when they introduce a new vehicle. They can do it at a traditional auto show, at a private event, at new shows in China or on social media. Theres so much more competition for the existing shows. Theyre still figuring out what works. In the meantime, the Detroit show should focus on Asian automakers, the ones we know and love and the next generation of up-and-comers from China and India. It was Toyota and Nissan that turned the Detroit show into a global news event and a regional economic powerhouse a generation ago. Not Mercedes, not BMW. Equally important, not GM, Ford or Chrysler. A few of Detroit-area auto dealers persuaded the Japanese giants to stage the 1989 global launch of their Lexus and Infiniti luxury brands in Detroit, of all places. It was a display of pure chutzpah to unveil those brands in the Big Threes backyard, and it succeeded brilliantly. Lexus and Infiniti got unprecedented news coverage, the brands got off to a flying start and the global auto industry changed forever as the Japanese auto industry shed its reputation for cheap and cheerful cars. GM, Ford and Chrysler were asterisks in the coverage from their hometown show. Back then, the Detroit brands didnt hold news events at the Detroit show. They owned this town, so they took their A game to the Chicago auto show, where top executives unveiled new vehicles at fancy press conferences. After 1989 the year the Detroit auto show changed its name to the North American International Auto Show Ford, Chevy, Cadillac, Chrysler and Dodge threw all their resources into winning at home. Japanese and Korean brands followed suit. They remain a major driver of the show today, unveiling many of their most important vehicles here. The first big-deal car from a German automaker in Detroit didnt happen until 1993, when Porsche unveiled the Boxster concept. A year later, Volkswagen followed with the Concept A, which heralded the return of the near-mythical Beetle. German brands were late to the party. Now theyre the first to leave. That doesnt mean the partys over. Next Januarys Detroit auto show should still host new vehicles and news from Japanese, Korean and Chinese companies, plus the Detroit Three. The Detroit Auto Dealers Association will announce its plans for the 2020 auto show in mid-July. Id bet something I could afford to lose it will move to October, when automakers can show off new vehicles and technologies in Michigans beautiful fall weather. DADA wants the show to remain a leading stage for automakers and tech companies to show off vehicles and innovations. To do that, they should remember what worked last time they reinvented the show: look to Asia. The rebooted Detroit auto show should go allout to host the unveilings of established favorites such as the Toyota Camry, Lexus LS, Honda Odyssey, hot newcomers like the Kia Stinger and Genesis G90, and, of course, local heroes from Ford, Cadillac, Chevy, Jeep and Ram. Thats not enough, though. DADA representatives, who travel the globe tirelessly drumming up vehicle intros and executives for the show, need to get back on the road and make Detroit THE stage for the next generation of global brands. Make this launching pad for Chinas competitors for the Accord and Googles self-driving minivan, Indias answers to the Jeep Wrangler and Honda Civic. History shows that if DADA makes Detroit the place strong newcomers announce themselves, established brands will come here, too. Eventually, even the Germans. Amazon jumps into drug business with PillPack acquisitionBy JAMES F. PELTZLos Angeles said Thursday that it has agreed to acquire online pharmacy PillPack, confirming months of speculation that the internet retail giant would jump into the pharmacy sector and further disrupt the rapidly changing health care industry. Privately held PillPack, founded in 2013, is still a relatively small player, with an estimated $100 million in annual revenue. But Amazon with $178 billion in sales last year, exceptional technology, far-flung distribution capabilities and a history of disrupting other industries poses a formidable threat. In addition, PillPack holds pharmacy licenses in all 50 states and has relationships with most major drug-benefit managers such as Express Scripts Holding Co., eliminating Amazons need to build those ties from scratch. The PillPack deal is a declaration of intent from Amazon to charge headlong into the pharmacy business, Walgreens CEO told analysts on a conference call Thursday. PillPack sells and ships medications in presorted doses from its pharmacy in Manchester, N.H., to every state except Hawaii, mainly for customers with multiple daily prescriptions. The firm also coordinates drug refills and renewals, confirms insurance and helps determine customer co-payments. Terms of Amazons agreement to buy PillPack were not disclosed. The purchase is expected to be completed in the second half of this year. The PillPack deal would be the latest example of the rapidly changing landscape in the health care industry due to consolidation thats partly occurred in response to expectations that Amazon, led by billionaire chief executive Jeff Bezos, would soon jump into the pharmacy sector. Health insurer Cigna Corp. agreed in March to buy Express Scripts for about $52 billion in cash and stock. That deal came four months after CVS, the nations largest drugstore chain, agreed to buy Cigna rival Aetna Inc. for $69 billion. And grocery operator Albertsons Cos., which also owns Vons and Safeway, announced plans in February to buy Rite Aid for an undisclosed price. In addition, Amazon and two other major U.S. companies, the bank JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Warren Buffetts conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway Inc., in January announced a joint plan to find ways of reducing health care costs for their U.S. employees. The companies said their focus would be mainly on providing improved health care for their own U.S. workers, who total nearly 1 million. But the move triggered speculation that any solutions they develop could quickly spread through the industry.

Have a tasty, patriotic Fourth!The 4th of July usually brings family and friends together for some kind of outdoor activities and especially for eating and drinking. Of course celebrating our Independence wouldnt be the same without fireworks when it gets dark. At our house well be having a cookout with swimming, eating, fireworks and fun. I thought I would share a few suggestions for food that are as close to red, white and blue as I know. You may have these recipes or they may be totally new to you. I promise that they have all been prepared by me or Ive tasted them at someone elses party. Anything I ever share on Taste Buddies is tried and truly good. As a beginning, try this Roasted Red Pepper spread. The color works and it is delicious. Its simple and I just make it in my small food processor. ROASTED RED PEPPER SPREAD 2 (12 oz) jars roasted red peppers, drained 2 tbsp. olive oil 2 tbsp. minced fresh Italian parsley 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice 2 tsp. capers, drained 1 medium clove of garlic, mashed to a paste tsp salt Pepper to taste Arrange the drained peppers on a double layer of paper towels and let them dry while preparing the recipe. Combine the remaining ingredients in the work bowl of a food processor. Process until the capers and parsley are finely chopped. Add the drained peppers and process until they are coarsely chopped. This should be finely chopped but not mushy. I like it to be a bit chunky. Store in refrigerator for up to five days. Remove to let come to room temperature at least 30 minutes before serving. Serve on crackers or Crostini. If you enjoy alcoholic beverages, you might want to try one of Mary Kays Blueberry Daiquiris. Blueberries are in season so this is a sure thing. BLUEBERRY DACQUIRI 1 small can frozen limeade 1 small can light rum 2-3 cups fresh or frozen blueberries 2 Tbs. powdered sugar Using a blender, pulse limeade, rum and sugar. Add blueberries and pulse until blended. If you use fresh berries, add a little ice to make it icy but if you use frozen ones, itll be icy enough. A Strawberry Pretzel salad recipe has been around for years but Ive discovered that some of my younger friends have never had it. For many of us, its a memory of potlucks, church suppers, picnics, cookouts and Sunday dinners. If youre not from the South, this is probably going to sound strange. Its creamy, crunchy, sweet, salty and fruity plus it is red and white for the 4th of July. You need to trust me on this one and give it a whirl. PRETZEL SALAD with STRAWBERRIES First Layer: 2 cups crushed pretzels cup sugar 1 sticks melted oleo or butter Mix above together, spread in a 9 x 13 lightly oiled casserole or pan. Bake 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Let it cool. Second Layer: 1 8 0z cream cheese, softened 1 cup sugar 2 cups cool whip Mix the cream cheese and the sugar using a mixer, gently hand fold the cool whip into cream mixture and spread over cooled crust. Third Layer: 2 10 oz packages frozen, sliced strawberries, thawed 2 cups pineapple juice 2 (3 oz) pks. Strawberry jello Heat juice and then add jello and stir until the Jello is dissolved, add strawberries. Set bowl in refrigerator until it begins to gel (10 15 minutes). Spread over second layer. Refrigerate overnight. This is the recipe Ive always used. In researching the origin of the recipe, which I never found, I saw that many of the recipes dont use the 2 cups of pineapple juice but instead they use 2 cups boiling water. That would by your choice to use water or pineapple juice. Also, the Southern Living recipe calls for a 4th layer made by mixing 16 oz. sour cream, cups sugar and spread over strawberry layer and then sprinkle sup toasted pecans. Now, we need to have a meat dish. Barbeque sauce is reddish so that would work if youre conscientious about using the red, white and blue colors. For me, its hamburgers right off the grill and the ketchup on top makes it red. Im not talking about just a regular hamburger, Im talking about an absolutely delicious one. My friend, Pat Vanous, shared this with me ages ago and its the way Ive made burgers since she shared the recipe. MORNING GLORY HAMBURGERS 3 lbs hamburger cup apple sauce 1 pkg onion soup mix cup Ritz crackers (crushed) 2 tsp Tabasco sauce 3 tsp Worchestershire sauce Mix all ingredients and make into patties. Grill to the desired doneness but put a dollop of pimento cheese or a cheese slice and let it melt before you take them off the grill. There are tons of recipes for pies and cakes in the patriotic theme and one of my favorites is JoAnn Torrans Strawberry Cake. She made it for our Bunco group and Ive raved about it ever since. Its a little more work but well worth the effort. So, to end your meal give this one a try. STRAWBERRY CAKE Cake Ingredients: 1 box White Cake Mix 1 3oz box Strawberry Jello 4 large eggs cup sugar cup All-Purpose flour cup Fresh Strawberries, finely chopped 1 cup vegetable oil cup milk Butter-cream Frosting Ingredients: 1 cup unsalted butter, softened 2 (16 oz) packages Powdered Sugar 1 cup fresh strawberries, finely chopped 1. Preheat the oven to 30 degrees. Spray 3 cake pans (9 inch) with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. 2. Mix all cake ingredients with an electric mixer on low until just combined. Scrape the side of the bowl and increase mixer to med and beat for 3 minutes. 3. Pour cake batter into prepared pans and bake about 23 minutes. Test with cake tester or toothpick comes out clean. 4. Cool cake in pans on rack for about 10 minutes Remove from pans and cool completely. Refrigerate cakes until completely chilled. 5. Meanwhile, make frosting. Beat the butter on medium until its pale yellow and fluffy. Add powdered sugar and strawberries and beat on low until combined and creamy. 6. Spread one of the layers of cake with frosting then refrigerate.   Fr ost the second layer and refrigerate until the frosting on both layers has firmed up a bit.   Assemble all the layers and fr ost the top and sides. Refrigerate! Have a Happy and Safe 4th of July.   Genie Norman is a Columbia County resident who loves good food and fun. Her column on favorite recipes and restaurants appears twice a month.

How you treat others will determine how much respect you are given in return. A romantic gesture will bring you closer to someone you love. Make calculated choices. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Youll have trouble making decisions. Inconsistency will plague you when dealing with matters that concern personal or physical changes. Enforce discipline and moderation to avoid making a poor choice. Live up to your promises, but dont overstep your bounds. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Youve got all the right moves and the ideas and capability to get ahead. Dealings with friends, relatives and domestic situations are favored. Meetings should be scheduled to clear up matters that have been bothering you. Romance is recommended. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Live, learn and make progress. Dont limit the possibilities. Do your research and find out what it will take to achieve the lifestyle you desire. Build strong relationships that are based on equality, integrity and common interests. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Look at your options and make reasonable adjustments that will help you improve your surroundings and home environment without breaking the bank. Do the work yourself and save money. Enlist the help of family and friends. Romance is encouraged. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Incentives will pay off. Make a list of what you want done and look for unique ways to move forward. Youll attract the help you need to get things done quickly so you can enjoy the fruits of your labor. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Look for alternative ways to do things, and youll come up with an innovative plan that will lead to self-improvement. Socialize or make a special date with someone you love. Romance will encourage long-term plans. Dont let temptation or indulgence ruin your day. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Plan to make a difference to those who depend on you. Listen to complaints and show interest in what others want to see happen, but formulate the best way to accommodate yourself as well as others before you proceed. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Short trips, visiting a friend or relative or attending a reunion will give you the opportunity to get a different perspective on the possibilities that exist. An emotional situation will escalate quickly and should be handled moderately. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Check out new opportunities. The online job market or an investment that can help you protect your money will offer something you didnt expect. Dont shy away from taking a new approach to an old idea. Execute your plans. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Take a lead position and make suggestions that will encourage others to take part. Your ability to coordinate plans and drum up interest will add to your popularity. Get involved in activities that challenge you mentally and physically. Romance is encouraged. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You wont be given all the information you require to make a good decision regarding a financial, medical or legal matter. Call upon an expert to walk you through your options. Once youve got the facts, consider whats best for you. Love of fast food slows mans effort to lose weightDEAR ABBY Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Abigail Van DEAR ABBY: My husband has become very overweight, which has caused his sex drive -as well as his health -to suffer. I worry about him constantly, and I miss the intimacy we used to have. He is aware of how I feel and started trying to eat healthier. He also tries to exercise at least a little bit every day. The problem is he constantly falls off the wagon. Sometimes he says hes too tired to exercise, or he reverts back to his old habits and ends up eating fast food. He always tries again the next day, but he wont make much progress at the rate hes going. I dont want to nag him to death, but I do want him around for a long time. What can I say that will make him take this more seriously? -ALL ABOUT HEALTH IN ALABAMA DEAR ALL ABOUT HEALTH: Tell your husband how much you love him, and that youre afraid until death do us part will happen prematurely if he continues killing himself with his fork and his sedentary ways. You might also recite the names of the various diseases that accompany obesity in most people. But if your husbands doctor hasnt been able to get the message through to him, there isnt much more you can do besides love him for the wonderful husband he is and keep your fingers crossed. I say this because the only person who can make your husband commit to a diet and exercise program is himself, with the recognition that changing his unhealthy patterns probably wont be easy and WILL take time. DEAR ABBY: Recently, my wife took two of our granddaughters (ages 9 and 15) and a friend (age 15) to the movies. As usual, the next day I found trash had been left in the car, which triggered the following text exchange. I sent both granddaughters a picture of a garbage can and my car and asked: Please advise which one is used to throw away trash? If you need help, ask your mom. Im not accusing anyone of anything. Also, if one of your friends was to throw trash on your Poppys car floor, what should you do? Would you ask them to pick it up -yes or no? The only response I received was from their mom, who said, Amber (granddaughter) did not leave trash in your car! Things have gone downhill from there. I replied that I expected an answer to my questions, and that I hadnt accused anybody of anything. You would think I had shot someone! Many tears have been shed, and my wife has threatened to divorce me for standing my ground. We have agreed to have you settle this. What say you? -TALKING TRASH IN SOUTH CAROLINA DEAR TALKING TRASH: You are the injured party. You did nothing wrong. You are owed an apology from all concerned -the kid who left the trash in your car, and your wife and daughter for overreacting.
