Williams II has plans for the North Central Florida area to improve education and lifestyles and hes seeking the District 10 State Representative seat to put his plan into action. Williams, 48, has qualified for the post with the Florida Division of Elections Office in Tallahassee. The seat includes five counties: Columbia, Baker, Hamilton, Suwannee and a small portion of Alachua. Incumbent Elizabeth Porter is barred from running again due to term limits. Williams, who is running on the Democratic ticket, said he decided to seek the post to help the local area and its constituents. I want to get into office and help people take care of their families, so they can live a successful and peaceful life and enjoy our area, he said. A political newcomer, this is his first time running for public office. Its my first time seeking office, but it already seems like Ive been doing that, he said. I guess this is the official way to do that, but I help people all the time. Even in my youth I was always helping people and it seems like I was born to do this. It becomes natural.

Bob HH ope 1903-2003, UU SS c omedian United States Marine Corps after serving for nearly 23 years. He said his time in the Corps, where he often worked with government officials, helped form his dream to serve as a public servant. He said hes been harboring the dream since 1997 when he was stationed at the Marine Corps Air Station in El Toro, California, and thought about running for office there. He deferred his plan for more than 20 years and decided now was the time to seek office in the community where he grew up. Through Williams military experience hes lived in both large cities as well as smaller, rural communities that struggled with employment opportunities. Ive had quite a bit of experience in administration, foreign government and Ive dealt directly with congressmen and their inquiries for citizens that are in different states, he said. This whole time I had a thought, but I believe the thought had me. It was teaching me about business, negotiations and how to be successful and which prepared me for what Im dealing with right now. Williams, pastor of New Beginnings Restoration Church, is a Columbia County native and said he believes there are four priorities that need to be addressed in the upcoming election. He coined the items under his EESI plan education, employment, social services and infrastructure needs. The first thing that every place needs and the top thing that I believe District 10 needs a good educational system, Williams said. He said that once a good and safe educational system has been established, that will lead to more employment opportunities for the area. The need for improved and updated social services was ranked as his number three concern, while addressing North Central Floridas infrastructure needs rounded out his listing. People will stand in line for what they want and I believe District 10 has the potential to become a very attractive place for Floridas economy, he said. WILLIAMSContinued From 1A SantiagoCommunity Hospice expands to cover Lake City and vicinityBY STEVE WILSONswilson@lakecityreporter.comWith a legacy dating back to 1979, Community Hospice & Palliative Care is now offering its services to residents in Lake City and vicinity. CHPC, which specializes in assisting veterans, has recently expanded its service area to include 11 counties in North Central Florida, including Columbia. Its new facility here is located at 163 SW Stonegate Terrace in Lake City. With more than 950 employees and 1,000 volunteers, the organization helps approximately 1,500 patients per day to live better with advanced illness at home, in long-term care and assisted living facilities, in hospitals and at its eight inpatient care centers, according to its website. Community Hospice & Palliative Cares expansion is going well, patients, families and providers have repeatedly expressed excitement over having a choice in the care they receive, said Billie Adkins, regional director for CHPC. We are serving a growing number of patients and families in and around Columbia County, so much so that we just added a new Clinical Manager to our team. Among its first patients here was a veteran Joseph Edgel Tyre. One of our first patients in Columbia County was a Marine who we were able to honor with a pinning ceremony in his home provided by a fellow veteran, Adkins said. Adkins is optimistic about CHPCs recent expansion. Our expansion into Columbia County has gone well and the team has worked hard to introduce our organization to the patients and families in the community through the compassionate care we provide, she said. This area is unique given the amount of rural territory we support. It is our hope to bring hospice care to everyone who needs it no matter where they call home. Adkins said that local staff here in Columbia County plays a vital role in their efforts. Our staff is local and truly a part of your community, she said. Recently, we added a new Clinical Manager, Diane Wells RN. Diane comes to us with management and hospice experience. She is dedicated and compassionate and will lead our clinical services in this area. With respect to their efforts to assist veterans, Adkins said that veterans, especially ones whove been in combat, can experience the end of life differently than those who didnt serve. We are honored to not only serve veterans and their caregivers by providing specialized compassionate care to meet their unique needs now and at the end of life, but to also commemorate their sacrifices in meaningful ways that ensure their legacies live on, she said. Our physicians, nurses and expert counselors are specially trained and prepared to identify veterans end-oflife needs and assist in the healing and resolution process for veterans and their loved ones. Adkins said that CHPC is always looking for dedicated volunteers. Volunteers are vital members of our team and our volunteer services department works closely with all volunteers to match their talents and skills with current needs in the best way possible, she said.

A 2017 Toyota Tacoma, driven by 27-year-old Jacob Paschall of Lake City, was driving west on State Road 20 when the front of his vehicle collided with the left rear of (Riveras vehicle) within the inside westbound lane of State Road 20, the report said. Riveras Mustang ended up on the outside lane of westbound S.R. 20, facing south. Paschalls vehicle landed in a north side ditch on State Road 20. Rivera and his occupant, 35-year-old Amanda Williams of Palatka, were ejected from the Mustang, the report said. Rivera and Williams were taken to UF Health Shands in Gainesville, where Rivera died and Williams had critical injuries, according to the report. The report, which did not indicate whether any of those involved were wearing seat belts, said Paschall was taken to Putnam County Medical Center for minor injuries. FATALContinued From 1A to escape a Columbia County Sheriffs deputy early Tuesday morning, a CCSO arrest report said. At around 2:15 a.m. the officer reported seeing a white Mitsubishi vehicle exit Cypress Inn off U.S. Highway 90. The vehicle then takes a quick left onto Real Terrace at a high rate of speed, it states. Santiago drove over the center line along Commerce Drive, prompting the officer to turn on his emergency lights and give chase, it said. The vehicle speeds through the parking lot of the hotel and then attempts to exit, the report stated. While doing so the vehicle runs over a curb and flattens the driver side front tire and then comes to a stop. A search of the vehicle was conducted, which reportedly led to the discovery of three plastic bags containing a green leafy substance. Santiago allegedly told CCSO the substance was synthetic marijuana, or K2. PURSUITContinued From 1A

Watching Speaker Paul Ryan struggle recently to craft House majorities on controversial immigration and funding bills makes one wonder why anyone would want the job he is giving up after the current Congress. In fact, with just four months until Novembers elections, battles for the No. 3 job in the federal government are well underway within both parties. And the outcome is even more in doubt than the results of the elections themselves. In the GOP, speculation since Ryan announced his retirement has centered largely on whether his top deputy, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California, can put together enough votes to succeed him. That assumes Republicans maintain their majority, something Democrats dont concede and most analysts consider the less likely November election result. We will win, the top House Democrat, former Speaker Nancy Pelosi, confidently told the Boston Globe. I will run for speaker. But even if her party succeeds, shes no sure thing either. Indeed, the prospect is growing that neither McCarthy nor Pelosi will be elected speaker when the new House convenes in January. The reason is that it takes 218 votes a majority of the full House to elect the speaker. If Novembers winning party holds just a narrow margin a definite possibility its internal divisions will come into play, increasing uncertainty about the ultimate result. On the GOP side, members of the Freedom Caucus, some 30 of the partys most conservative members, are talking of backing one of their own, perhaps Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio or the groups chairman, Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina. In 2015, the threat of Freedom Caucus defections prevented McCarthy from inheriting the speakership when John Boehner resigned, leading to Ryans election as a compromise. Since any GOP majority in the new House would almost certainly be far narrower than the partys current 23-vote margin, the Freedom Caucus might well hold the balance of power, again forcing the party to pick someone other than McCarthy. In that event, one person who might emerge is Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, the Republicans popular No. 3 leader. Scalise is considered more acceptable to the Freedom Caucus than McCarthy. An uncertain factor: the latters close relationship to President Donald Trump, depending on how GOP members regard the president after what could be a very difficult election for them. Even more complications exist on the Democratic side, where a narrow majority could jeopardize Pelosis hopes of regaining her role as the first woman speaker. An important warning flashed in the March special congressional election in Pennsylvania when the victorious Democrat, Rep. Conor Lamb, refused to commit to backing Pelosi. So did Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, last weeks surprise primary winner in New York. And other likely Democratic winners are also withholding support from the former speaker, whose liberal image has made her a recurrent GOP political target. Her potential problems go beyond ideology. Its hardly surprising that many congressional Democrats and candidates believe their party needs younger leadership than their three septuagenarian leaders: Pelosi, 78; Minority Whip Steny Hoyer of Maryland, 79; and Assistant Minority Leader Jim Clyburn of South Carolina, 78 later this month. Ocasio-Cortez complicated the outlook by upending the No. 4 Democrat, Rep. Joe Crowley of New York, 56, who had positioned himself to be the next leader. Indeed, his focus on his growing national role left him out of touch with the New York City district whose changing demographics he no longer epitomized. On the surface, Crowleys loss helps Pelosi by removing her top potential rival. But the fact that he lost to a 28-year-old Latina dramatized the degree to which Democrats want change, and an array of potential leadership candidates has started to surface. The key to both parties leadership races may be whether members are choosing their candidate for speaker or picking the minority leader. To become leader of the minority party only takes a majority of its elected members, something both McCarthy and Pelosi may be able to achieve, unless their party performs so poorly in November its members demand change. Pelosi, especially, would be in danger if Democrats dont regain the House. But if the election is for speaker of a closely divided House, neither McCarthy nor Pelosi may be able to achieve the near solidarity of their own members to gain the required 218 votes. What happens then is anybodys guess. Congressional leadership races are notoriously quirky and hard to predict. Just two weeks ago, three of four panel members on MSNBCs Meet the Press Daily picked Crowley as most likely to be the next speaker. So its safe to say no one can be too sure how this one will come out.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman ANOTHER OPINIONCourt right to back Trump in travel rulingThe U.S. Supreme Court has handed President Donald Trump a significant victory by upholding the governments ability to restrict entry into America from a handful of hostile nations, many of which are predominantly Muslim. The high courts 5-4 ruling will cause Trumps critics to ratchet up their outrage meters another notch or two. But the majority was right to kill this political theater masquerading as jurisprudence. As we see it, despite Trumps opponents anger and condemnation of the order as religious bigotry and/or racism, the most disturbing aspect of this ruling is that it was not unanimous. Team Trump certainly stumbled badly coming out of the gate in trying to implement the extreme vetting that Trump had promised as a candidate. But the final version of the policy, reworked following previous setbacks in federal court, seemed bulletproof. Foremost among the courts recent reasons for upholding the directive was federal law itself. With the 1952 Immigration and Naturalization Act, Congress delegated authority over controlling who enters the country to the president. That law empowers the president to suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate, if he believes their entry would be detrimental to U.S. interests. Roberts observed that the law exudes deference to the President in every clause. Moreover, Trumps final order had been issued after a global review of national security matters, Roberts noted, and there was persuasive evidence that the entry suspension has a legitimate grounding in national security concerns. Thus, it was squarely within the scope of Presidential authority. As a result, the critics primary argument that the proposal was anti-Muslim just didnt wash with the majority. Visitors from many nations that are more than 90 percent Muslim such as Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Indonesia, Pakistan, Algeria, Morocco and Turkey were still free to seek entry to America. Roberts observed that some Muslim-majority nations had been removed, and that the order potentially affected just 8 percent of the worlds Muslims located in countries that, the chief justice pointed out, were previously designated by Congress or prior administrations as posing national security risks. The policy is expressly premised on legitimate purposes and says nothing about religion, the majority observed. Roberts noted that the heart of the objections to the order by citizens, lower-court judges and the Supreme Courts minority was the alleged animus toward Muslims that Trump expressed in statements as a candidate and president. Yet, he argued, refreshingly, the issue before us is not whether to denounce the statements, but instead to weigh those against the authority of the Presidency itself. Clearly, as Roberts indicated, Trump was on firm legal, historical and constitutional ground in issuing the order. For us, the same could not be said for those who challenged the president. New speaker? Anybodys guess LETTERS TO THE EDITORTo the Editor: You would think there are many issues of much more importance to the Florida Legislature than toying with Daylight Saving Time! I think most Floridians would agree to quit changing back and forth BUT is there really justification for year-round Daylight Saving Time? Just imagine all thats required for revising schedules, etc. So yearround daylight savings would mean additional issues for transportation between other states that remain on Eastern Standard Time. Vacationers are going to continue to come to Florida whether we have an extra hour of daylight or not. Florida was, is, and will continue be great regardless. Cant we just leave Eastern Standard Time alone? it has worked ever since time zones were established. Since Congress still has to approve this before the bill becomes law, I would ask them to just say no. On a personal note, and one shared with others, it takes approximately 3 4 weeks to get bodies re-regulated. And this increases with age there are studies suggesting health issues, as well. Lets be clear lets have Eastern Standard Time year-round and scrap Daylight Saving Time completely. D.V. Bailey Lake City Carl P.

By JOE REEDYAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida States athletic department is thriving under Stan Wilcox. Since Wilcox became the Seminoles AD in 2013, Florida State has won national championships in three sports. Wilcox isnt standing pat, hes already made one major hire and is expected to make another over the next 12 months. Wilcox hired Willie Taggart last December as Florida States new football coach, a move he made less than a week after Jimbo Fisher resigned to go to Texas A&M. It marked Wilcoxs first major coaching hire at Florida State and the first time the school went outside the football program to get a head coach in 41 years. Wilcoxs second major coaching hire will happen once next years baseball season ends and Mike Martin retires after 40 seasons as a manager. Martin has the most wins in college baseball. The AD can only hope his choice for baseball will go over as well as his Taggart hire. The Palmetto, Florida, native, who grew up a Florida State fan, has energized the football fan base that had grown tired of yearly reports of Fisher seeking greener pastures. The April 14 spring game Taggarts first drew a program-record crowd of 60,934. He already knows the level of play that the Seminole family has come to expect, and as well as our current and future student athletes, they know that, what is expected of them, Wilcox said of Taggart. Now hes set the stage and all he has to do now is come in and win games and were back. Wilcox and university President John Thrasher also expect to announce plans for a football operations building by the Sept. 3 opener against Virginia Tech. The building, which would include coaches offices, a weight room and meeting space for players, could be constructed next to the indoor practice facility. University officials also have discussed renovating the Moore Athletics Center, which is attached to Doak Campbell Stadium, for football only, but that would require relocating the athletic department and the College of Communications. Taggart said following spring practices that he favors a new facility instead of renovations. Wilcox is also looking at ways that a football facility could benefit all sports. We still want to have a hub central location for all the academic activities as well as a training table for that all our student athletes can come to, and be able to eat a meal together, he said. So its not just your teammates, but youre getting to know the student athletes in other sports. Wilcox is pleased that Martin will coach one more season for two reasons: Martin is 13 wins away from becoming the first NCAA coach in any sport to get 2,000 victories and it allows fans throughout college baseball a chance to honor Martin for what he has done in and for the sport.

Bugs, lucky foe send No. 2 seed Wozniacki homeBy HOWARD FENDRICHAssociated PressLONDON Caroline Wozniacki complained about the flying insects at Wimbledon, demanding that bug spray be brought to the court. She wondered aloud whether play should be halted because of a brief drizzle. And the No. 2-seeded Wozniacki was not exactly gracious in defeat after staving off five match points, but not the sixth, in what became a 6-4, 1-6, 7-5 loss to 35th-ranked Ekaterina Makarova of Russia in the second round at the All England Club on Wednesday. The reigning Australian Open champions latest lackluster showing at Wimbledon made her the fifth top-eight seeded woman to exit by the end of Day 3. Wozniacki said Makarova got a little lucky and added, I would be very surprised if you saw her go far. Asked what she thought of those remarks, Makarova laughed and replied: Well, I dont know what to say. Yeah, maybe I was lucky today. Good for me. Thanks, God. While both Williams sisters moved into the third round, as did past U.S. Open Makarova defeats Wozniacki in three sets in the second round of Wimbledon.By STEPHEN WHYNOAssociated PressOXON HILL, Md. Camera lighting made beads of sweat emerge from Tony Elliotts forehead as he fielded questions ranging from football philosophy to something he could share about his private life. The Clemson co-offensive coordinator paused, smiled and couldnt hide his joy about riding an all-terrain vehicle through the woods. The walls broke down as Elliott made a human connection with mock interviewer Jon Oliver in the best possible preparation he can get for a head coaching job. Despite helping the Tigers win a national title, Elliott has never interviewed for a head coaching job. Two phone calls, Elliott said. College football as a public entity cant institute a Rooney Rule like the NFL, which compels teams to interview minority candidates for head coaching jobs. So instead of focusing all its efforts on the schools, the NCAA is putting some of its rising coaching candidates through its Organization trying to help more get more head coaching jobs.NCAA prepares minority coordinatorsCOLLEGE ATHLETICSPenn State head coach James Franklin links arms with his players to come out for the game against Maryland at Maryland Stadium on Nov. 25, 2017 in College Park, Md.

J.T. Riddle singled, tripled and homered. His RBI triple in the sixth put the Marlins ahead and he later scored. Riddle added his fifth homer in the eighth. Urena pitched five scoreless innings and struck out six before departing for a pinch hitter after throwing 78 pitches. Drew Rucinski (4-1) pitched two scoreless innings for his second win in the series. Brad Ziegler earned his 10th save. Chestnut sets record with 74 hot dogsBy REBECCA GIBIANAssociated Press NEW YORK Joey Jaws Chestnut extended his reign as champion eater at the Nathans Famous July Fourth hot dog eating contest Wednesday, downing a record 74 wieners and buns in 10 minutes to take home the coveted Mustard Belt for the 11th time. Miki Sudo held on to her title as the top womens competitor at the annual Brooklyn eat-off, chomping 37 franks and buns to take home the top prize for an unprecedented fifth consecutive year. Chestnut said he was feeling good. I found a vicious rhythm, the 34-year-old Chestnut said after the stuffing session. But while Chestnut ate 10 more dogs and buns than second-place finisher Carmen Cincotti, a judging error cast initial doubt over their totals after jurists didnt see the eaters were taking the dogs and buns from two plates. Frankly, the judging was just off, said George Shea, the longtime Coney Island announcer. Joey said, Look at my plates, and Carmen said, Look at my plates. We counted the plates that they had eaten and it was 64 and 74. Eric Gonzalez, the Brooklyn district attorney, certified the final tally and Chestnuts record of 74, two more than he consumed last year. At the end of the day, Joey Chestnut came in here and ate 74 hot dogs, broke a world record, said Cincotti, who celebrated his 26th birthday on Wednesday. Apparently they were good dogs. A total of $40,000 in prize money was up for grabs, with the first-place winners taking home $10,000 each. Sudo fell short of the 41 hot dogs she consumed last year but easily beat out second-place finisher Mischelle Lesco, of Tucson, Arizona, who chowed down 28 wieners and buns. Thousands of attendees, many donning mustard-colored hot dog caps, braved 83-degree temperatures and a heat index of 91 degrees to witness the annual July Fourth competition on the Coney Island boardwalk. The outlandish tradition dates to 1972, though the company has long promoted what a former president acknowledged was a legendary start date of 1916. Fan Martha Pleasant, of Franklin, New Jersey, said she was attending the competitive eating competition to support her husband, Dwight Pleasant, who loves wieners. We are trying to knock something off my hubbys bucket list, she said.NATHANS JULY FOURTH HOT DOG EATING CONTESTChampion Forum to better prepare them for the interview process. It is an effort to increase the diversity in the Power Five conferences and across the country. You cant shame people into hiring people, said Oliver, a former University of Virginia athletics administrator who now works with the Champion Forum. You cant tell (schools) what they need to be doing. But what we can do is make sure (the candidates) are ready. Minorities make up only 19 percent of Division I head football coaches and less across the Power Five conferences: the ACC, SEC, Big Ten, Big 12 and Pac 12. In contrast, 61 percent of Division I players are minorities. The Champion Forum has helped Penn States James Franklin, Vanderbilts Derek Mason, Stanfords David Shaw, Arizonas Kevin Sumlin and others get head jobs, with the aim of pushing along the next generation. Elliott, Michigan assistant head coach Pep Hamilton, LSU defensive coordinator Dave Aranda, Florida State defensive coordinator Harlon Barnett, South Carolina offensive coordinator Bryan McClendon and Navy offensive coordinator Ivin Jasper are all part of the latest class. Picked by their conferences and schools to go through the program, theyre all in Phase 2, which includes one-on-one mock interviews, conversations with search firms and information about contracts and what to expect from being a head coach. Its just the knowledge of what goes into becoming a head coach, what (athletic directors) look for, what search firms look for, said Jasper, who has been a candidate for jobs at Georgia Southern, Yale and Rice during his time at Navy. Having those tools in our toolbox now and know what people look for, now we can address those issues and work on getting better at it. Jasper and Elliott had back-toback mock interviews with their wives seated a few feet away. Oliver played the role of the interviewer for a job at a fictional Atlantic University in Florida, firing questions at each coach about a head job and asking if they had any questions of their own. Afterward, Oliver critiqued them on everything from how fast they were talking to what they shouldnt have said. Oliver has seen coaches go from not being able to finish answers to having a better idea of what to expect the next time the phone rings about an opening. Had I not gone through this process, I wouldnt know what I was getting into, Elliott said. I wouldnt have been encouraged to go prepare in the areas where I needed to prepare to ultimately be successful. Because at the end of the day, its not just becoming a head coach. Its being a successful head coach and building a successful program. The success of coaches like Franklin helps because Oliver is well aware that minority coaches who dont succeed are less likely to get a second chance. In his eight years running the Champion Forum, director of NCAA leadership development Curtis Hollomon has seen progress with more minority coaches being in the mix for openings. What weve seen is the awareness of these coaches, Hollomon said. Thats one of the main things that were trying to do: let them know that these coaches are out there, theyre in these positions and theyre ready when the opportunities present themselves. The program includes two steps of interview training, video clips to show strengths and weaknesses, and an in-person follow-up by former Washington Redskins general manager Charley Casserly and other officials. This year, the NCAA invited the coordinators wives to sit in on the program and welcomed their input.OCTAVIO JONES/Tampa Bay Times/TNSFormer South Florida coach Willie Taggart leaves the field at the end of the game against Louisville at Raymond James Stadium on October 23, 2013 in Tampa. Taggart was hired by Florida State in December. NCAAContinued From 1B

LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, JULY 5, 2018 3B CIPHER DEAR ABBY: I have never been married. Ive been perceived as a playboy for many years now. I dont mean to be, but when I sense the potential for a passionate romantic encounter with owers, candy, champagne, pot (and an occasional Quaalude), the urge takes over. I was never considered hot until I turned 50 and decided to get in shape. I had a hair transplant, a neck li and lost 25 pounds. Shouldnt I continue to enjoy this? Im really loving it. But I worry about the comments about my age. I look about 38. -MAX IN THE MIDWEST DEAR MAX: If you are wooing adult women with owers and candy, thats the traditional way of going about it. However, if you are using alcohol, pot and Quaaludes to render them so dizzy they cant refuse your advances, it is considered rape -a prosecutable oense no matter how good you look for your age. If you doubt me, just look at the news. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are pregnant, and we are ar guing over the gender of the baby. We have wanted this child for a long time and had trouble conceiving. I wont care if its a boy or a girl, but he is adamant that he wants a boy. He has even gone so far as to say that he will be disappointed if it isnt. We nd out the gender this month, and Im not sure how to prepare or if we should even nd out. Help! -DISAPPOINTED IN OHIO DEAR DISAPPOINTED: Many men fantasize about having a son, a mini-me to teach sports to, just as many women dream of having a daughter and what her rst prom will be like or helping her to plan her wedding. When most couples have a baby, the rst thing they do is thank God the baby is born healthy. Little girls have been known to wrap their daddies around their little ngers before they are old enough to walk. e same is true for baby boys and their mothers. Please do not take your husbands spouting o so seriously; it will pass. As to whether you should determine the sex of your baby before birth, consider this: It will give you time to color-coordinate the nursery and layette. DEAR ABBY: My good friend injured her back, so I oered to help out with chores and errands while she recovers. One of the errands was to pick up some groceries, which included items for a barbecue party. No problem. However, I later learned she threw a grand cookout on Memorial Day, complete with boat rides, jet skis, reworks and tons of food -the food I picked up for her. e kicker? I wasnt invited! Am I immature for feeling angry and le out? -TRYING TO BE AN ADULT ABOUT THIS DEAR TRYING: I dont think you are immature. You called this woman a good friend. Unless an important fact was omitted from your letter, your feelings are nor mal. e only good friend in this relationship appears to be you.

MIAMI Beckhams Miami stadium plan targets golf course David Beckhams latest soccer plan for Miami might be decided by the citys voters. His target: a golf course. Beckham is scheduled to appear before the Miami city commission next week as he and his partners aim to move closer to picking a stadium location for their Major League Soccer franchise. The Beckham groups latest proposal calls for a 28,000-seat stadium on the site of what is now the Melreese Country Club, a golf course owned by the city that sits near Miami International Airport. If commissioners approve, voters would decide on Nov. 6 whether to change the citys charter and allow what would be a no-bid deal to lease 73 acres at the Melreese site to the group. The deal Beckham is proposing calls for the city to collect nearly $140 million in rent payments over 39 years, a rate of roughly $3.5 million annually. NEW YORK NBA says travel hinders change in playoff format The NBA estimates an increase of 40,000 miles of travel in the postseason if it scrapped its current conference format and took the top 16 teams. Calls to change the system were renewed this week when LeBron James left Cleveland for the Los Angeles Lakers, which could create another strong Western Conference team, where both Houston and Golden State nished above.700. The only team in the Eastern Conference with a similar record was Toronto. Houston and Golden State met in a thrilling West nal before the Warriors swept the Cavaliers for the title. Commissioner Adam Silver has said ideally there would be a format allowing the two best teams to meet for the title, but he has repeatedly expressed concern about the additional travel that would be created if teams were seeded 1 to 16 in the postseason, instead of the current format in which its the top eight teams in each conference. Associated PressANDRE PENNER/Associated Press Uruguays Luis Suarez celebrates after the round of 16 match between Uruguay and Portugal at the World Cup on Saturday at the Fisht Stadium in Sochi, Russia. Uruguay will take on France in the quarterfinals. A more mature Suarez?By GERALD IRMAYAssociated PressNIZHNY NOVGOROD, Russia First, it was his hand. Then, his teeth. Luis Suarezs feet and football ability are yet to take center stage for Uruguay at a World Cup. Maybe this time, now that his head is right. Like Barcelona teammate and close friend Lionel Messi, Suarez could be playing for his World Cup legacy in Russia. At best he has three games left, starting with Fridays quarterfinal against France. Messis failures at the World Cup have been well documented. Suarezs experiences have been far rawer. At both his previous tournaments, the Uruguay striker hasnt just left disappointed, hes left in disgrace, labeled a cheat in one and the worlds dirtiest player in the other. You mature, you learn things and you live in the present, Suarez said at Uruguays team base in Russia in the buildup to the France game. In South Africa in 2010, Suarezs defining act was to block a goal-bound header from Ghana with his hand in the dying seconds of extra time in their quarterfinal. Suarez was sent off for the intentional handball but Ghana missed the resulting penalty. Suarezs clear cheating and wild celebrations on the side of the field incensed a continent as it helped Uruguay reach the semifinals at the expense of Africas last hope. Four years ago in Brazil, there was an even more shocking exit: Suarez bit Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini in a group game leaving visible teeth marks in Chiellinis left shoulder and FIFA banned him for nine matches and four months, ending his tournament. It was the third time Suarez had been banned for biting an opponent. Suarez, now 31, is back for another go at the World Cup, maybe his last. At Uruguays base he appeared unaffected by his ignominious history at the tournament, answering questions from journalists about previous disciplinary breakdowns with no outward signs of discomfort. There seemed to be no attempts to hide anything, either. Suarez has taken steps to address his on-field behavior for Uruguay, he said, with the help of Oscar Tabarez, the coach and former teacher who has been in charge for Suarezs entire international career. Tabarez helps a lot. Hes one of the best coaches in the world because of his personality, the way he helps players, Suarez said. Personally, he has helped me a lot. Before games, he always talks to me about what goes on in my head. Thats important to me. That talk I have with him is important. For over a decade, Tabarez has worked to develop a specific team mantra in the Uruguay squad, putting emphasis on humility, work ethic and respect for others. That has manifested itself at the teams World Cup base in Russia, a sports center on the outskirts of Nizhny Novgorod where the players accommodation is more like school dormitories than five-star luxury. From the camp, stories emerge of Uruguays best players and biggest stars being asked to clear away their own plates and cutlery after meals, wash their own boots, carry training equipment to and from the field, and, in a nod to plain good manners, start press conferences by greeting journalists with a good morning or good afternoon. Suarez also spoke about the serenity Tabarez brought to the squad and referred to himself, once the troublemaker, as now a veteran and a role model. Now Im one of the oldest, an example... the younger ones look up to us, Suarez said. You get nervous (in games), but at the same time you are one of the ones who has to remain calm. You have to set a good example to the younger ones. You have learned how to handle these situations. After the hand and the bite, Uruguay star has remained incident-free at World Cup. You mature, you learn things and you live in the present.Uruguay striker Luis SuarezBy JOSEPH WILSONAssociated PressSAINT-MARS-LA-REORTHE, France Chris Froome has asked Tour de France fans to let him race in peace, even if they doubt the recent ruling that cleared him of doping allegations. The British cyclist has been targeted by spectators in the past. During the 2015 Tour, he said a man threw a cup of urine at him while yelling doper. With the latest edition beginning on Saturday, five days after the International Cycling Union finally ruled Froome had won last years Spanish Vuelta cleanly, the four-time Tour winner offered an alternative way for skeptical fans to show their distrust. Support the race in a positive way, dont bring negativity, he said on Wednesday in western France. In terms of safety I obviously would encourage fans of the sport to come watch the race, and if you are not necessarily a Chris Froome fan or a Sky fan, come to the race and put a jersey on of another team you do support. That would be my advice. A cloud hung over Froome after a urine sample taken during the Vuelta in September showed a concentration of the asthma drug salbutamol that was twice the permitted level. After months of silence, the UCI said Froomes result did not represent an adverse finding, which could have led him to be stripped of his Vuelta victory, and a suspension. The UCIs ruling ensured he could compete at the Tour after race organizer ASO had informed Team Sky it would forbid Froome from entering until the doping case was decided. His use of asthma medication has been well documented and he often uses inhalers during races. World Anti-Doping Agency rules state an athlete can be cleared for excessive salbutamol use if he proves it was due to an appropriate therapeutic dosage. Froome said he understands it may take time for fans to believe he is not a cheat. But that data is available, and I would like to think that as people understand that more, they will understand my decision to keep on racing knowing I have certainly done nothing wrong, Froome said. Of course it has been damaging. As it is right now Im just happy to draw a line in the sand and move on and focus on bike racing.Froome calls on fans to let him ride Tour in peace

The positive is that Mike has created it to be a very desirable position. The negative is that whoever comes in has big shoes to fill, and very high expectations of that person coming in the door, Wilcox said. Sometimes that next person is not always going to end up being successful as you want them to be, and you may have to take a little while to get the right person. So but were going to try to do our due diligence to make sure that we find the right person. Despite football having to go on a four-game winning streak to avoid its first losing season since 1976, Florida State finished ninth in the Directors Cup Division I standings, which is a benchmark that entire athletic programs are judged by because it awards points based on each schools finish in up to 20 sports. That is the first time FSU has finished in the top 10 in the standings since 2011-12. In Wilcoxs first four years, the Seminoles average finish was 14.5. The reasons for the high finish was softball winning the national championship womens beach volleyball reaching the final and mens basketball getting to the Elite Eight for the first time since 1993. The ninthplace finish is also the highest among Atlantic Coast Conference schools. Its amazing that this year has turned out the way it has. It started out looking bleak, but its ending up very positive, I think, for everybody, Wilcox said. runners-up Madison Keys and Karolina Pliskova, among the women, and Roger Federer won 35 consecutive points on his serve while extending his Wimbledon set streak to 26 in a row, it was Wozniackis departure that counted as the closest thing to big news on Wednesday. She is a former No. 1 who recently claimed her first Grand Slam title. She won a grass-court tuneup tournament last weekend. She had managed to convince herself this was going to be her year to shine at the All England Club, the only major where shes never been past the fourth round. In addition to her title on the hard courts in Australia, shes twice been the runner-up on that surface at the U.S. Open, and shes been a quarterfinalist twice on the French Opens red clay. But a game that is principally predicated on defense can be harder to make work on the speedy grass, where Makarova produced twice as many winners Wednesday, 46-23. Its frustrating, Wozniacki said, because I feel like I could have gone and done something really great here. Instead, its the fourth time in the past seven years that shes out in the first or second round. She almost put together quite a comeback, though. After trailing 5-1 in the third set, Wozniacki broke twice when Makarova served for the match. The second time, at 5-3, Makarova was within a point of victory four times, but was unable to convert, wasting one of those opportunities with a double-fault. Once Wozniacki pulled even in the last set by holding at love, Makarova gave herself a bit of a talking-to. At 5-all, I said to myself: OK, calm down. Start over, recounted Makarova, a former top-10 player who twice has been a major semifinalist and got to the Wimbledon quarterfinals in 2014. From deuce in that game, she picked up six of the last seven points. Earlier in the match, Wozniacki was buggin out about the bugs that also showed up last year at the tournament. She insisted that something needed to be done about them. Makarova, too, called the scene a little bit strange and different and a little bit uncomfortable. That word also described how Makarovas left-handed game made Wozniacki feel. I had a chance today. I fought all I had. Im out. Thats it, said Wozniacki, who actually won more total points, 94-91. Its life sometimes. You just have to keep working and come back. And hopefully next time, luck will be on my side. All that really matters, of course, is who wins the last point, something five-time champion Venus Williams did after a poor start for the second round in a row. Once again, she dropped the opening set. And once again, she dominated the rest of the way, this time beating 141st-ranked qualifier Alexandra Dulgheru of Romania 4-6, 6-0, 6-1. At 38, Williams was the oldest woman in the field, but she is now into the third round a year after getting to the final. I mean, its just about winning the match. And so, if thats your best or not, your best doesnt matter, Williams said, as long as you win. AGENDA Continued From 1B WIMBLEDON35 service points, 26 sets in a row at for FedererBy HOWARD FENDRICHAssociated PressLONDON As Roger Federer was winning 35 consecutive service points at Wimbledon on Wednesday yes, 35 in a row a Centre Court spectator cheered him on while wearing a red shirt with white lettering that said, PeRFect. He comes pretty close to living up to that at times. Federer moved into the third round at the All England Club as he chases his record-extending ninth championship there, using close-to-impeccable serving to beat 73rd-ranked Lukas Lacko of Slovakia 6-4, 6-4, 6-1. The 36-year-old Federer compiled 48 winners and just 11 unforced errors. He won 40 of 43 firstserve points, never faced a break chance, and delivered 16 aces. Sometimes your serve matches up better against certain players, he said. Theres no doubt about that. Talk about an understatement. At 4-3, 40-30, Federer hit a 118 mph ace to hold and start his roll that included the last five points he served in the first set, all 20 in the second, and then the first 10 of the third. By then, it was so dominant that one television announcer was moved to jokingly exclaim, Come on, double-fault! Federer did not oblige, but moments later, he did lose a point he served at 4-1, 30-love, when Lacko smacked a down-the-line backhand passing winner. I think (whats) important when you want to serve well is your pointfor-point mentality, saying, maybe, The first point is as important as a break point, so the concentra tion is the same, Federer explained. Trying to remember all the things youve done throughout the entire match what has worked, what hasnt worked. Very little did not work on this day, and hes allowed his two opponents to collect a total of 17 games through six sets. Very little hasnt worked for him over the years at Wimbledon, even now that hes in his mid-30s. Wednesdays result increased Federers streak to 26 straight sets at Wimbledon, equaling his second-best run, which came in 2003-04. His best was a 34-streak sequence from 2005-06. A year ago, Federer became the first man since Bjorn Borg in 1976 to win the title at the grass-court Grand Slam tournament without ceding a single set.KIRSTY WIGGLESWORTH/Associated PressRoger Federer celebrates his match point against Lukas Lacko in their mens singles match on the third day of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships on Wednesday in London.
