By STEVE WILSONswilson@lakecityreporter.comWith little to go on except a poor quality video, investigators are trying to determine who killed a Starke man in Columbia County, just south of Lake City, very early Saturday morning. Willie Chrome, 45, died when he was struck by an unidentified vehicle as he lay on U.S. 41 just after midnight on Saturday, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. The incident took place in from of Club Rodeo but had nothing to do with it. The vehicle continued north on U.S. 41, according to the report. You can see him run over the pedestrian, then a second or two later he hits the brakes, said Cpl. Derek MacLaren of the FHP of the dark and poor quality video that recorded the incident, from video equipment set up near Club Rodeo. MacLaren is fairly certain the vehicle involved was a sedan, but no skid or brake marks were found at the scene. Chrome was pronounced dead at the scene, and it is yet to be determined if By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comLake City officials are expected to make Joseph Helfenberger the next city manager Monday night at an annual salary of $120,000. During a 6 p.m. City Council meeting at City Hall, 205 N. Marion Avenue, council members are set to vote on a negotiated employment agreement with Helfenberger. According to the proposed resolution Helfenberger is expected to take over the city manager post on Aug. 1. The city is offering a $4,000 moving stipend. By STEVE WILSONswilson@lakecityreporter.comIt could cost up to a million dollars to fix City Hall and the Lake City Council is set to discuss the issue on Monday evening. On Tuesday, the city was officially presented with a structural analysis of City Hall, located at 205 N. Marion Ave. The analysis, done by Orlandobased Tetra Tech, began on June 7 with a visual inspection of the City Hall building, with an original purpose of determining the structural integrity of the brick facade, and went on to include information gathered by taking measurements, photos, visual observation, conversations with building employees and other methods. At present, $638,000 is the estimate Tetra Tech has made to make overall repairs, but the company said that amount could go up to $1 million. Now, the council is set to vote on spending $26,755 to complete a more comprehensive study. Built in 1911 and purchased by the city in 2005, for much of its previous history the City Hall building served as a bank. Of particular concern is the brick facade on the west and south face. This includes sealing around the windows and cracked sills, with considerable missing, cracked and deteriorating mortar which could result in water penetration. The analysis clearly stated that repairs in this area are necessary. Currently, there is an overhead hazard for loose bricks and mortar potentially falling onto pedestrians along the west and south sides of the building, it stated. The itemized cost for such repairs to the brick facade list listed as $582,000, SUNDAY, JULY 8, 2018 | YOUR COMMUNITY NEWSPAPER SINCE 1874 | $2 LAKECITYREPORTER.COM CALL US: (386) 752-1293 SUBSCRIBE TO THE REPORTER: Voice: 755-5445 F ax: 752-9400 Vol. 143, No. 331 TODAYS WEATHER Opinion . . . . . . 4A Obituaries . . . . . . 5A Puzzles . . . . . . . 2-3B Business . . . . . . . 1C Life . . . . . . . . 1D ReadingPalsVolunteers make it happen, 3A 90 70Scattered storms, 2A Lake City Reporter SongFarmers in action SUNDAY Day of deliveranceMorris Williams 4A +PLUS >> Dopp set to retire at UWSV 1D1CWhat do you think?Let us know in a Letter to the Editor.

as provided by Tetra Techs preliminary report. The study took into account the 1985 renovation of the building, in which three load bearing walls were removed and replaced by five steel girder lines. These changes impacted the strength and stability of the walls and the building but are not believed to have led directly to the brick facade damage. If the city plans to keep the building for the long term, it is recommended that a detailed structural investigation and analysis be performed for the building to better understand the stability, resistance to hurricane force winds, and the risks associated with the missing interior brick walls, the report stated. Another concern, less urgent in nature, also brought about by the 1985 renovation work, is deflections in the building floor. The steel girder lines provided floor support after the renovations, which resulted in unlevel floors. Our opinion is that this steel framing layout and methods of installation are the likely cause of the floor defections, the report said, adding that the floors do appear to be stable with no signs of active movement detected. Repair estimates to level the floors are itemized at $56,000. The council meeting is set for 6 p.m. at City Hall. 2A SUNDAY, J UU LY 8, 2018 DAILY BRIEFING LAKE CITY REPORTER 7a 1p 7p 1a 6a LAKE CITY ALMANAC SUN MOON UV INDEX EXTREME: 10 minutes to burn T odays ultra-violet radiation risk for the ar ea on a scale fr om 0 to 10+.

The State Board of Administration, which operates the retirement system, issued the order upholding a recommendation from an administrative law judge that David Moran should forfeit his benefits. Moran, a former sergeant at the Florida Department of Corrections Reception and Medical Center at Lake Butler, was convicted in a plot to kill a black former inmate who had bitten another officer. Moran and another correctional officer and a former officer involved in the plot were members of the Ku Klux Klan, according to a recommended order by Administrative Law Judge Hetal Desai. The men were arrested after enlisting an FBI informant to help kill the former inmate. The State Board of Administration informed Moran in 2017 that he had forfeited his benefits because of the conviction. Moran sought an administrative hearing, contending in part that there was not a connection between his job at the Department of Corrections and the conspiracy. Desai disagreed, and the State Board of Administration order backed that opinion. It might have been difficult for petitioner and his co-conspirators to carry out a murder or attempted murder of an inmate at the correctional facility at which they worked or had worked, this weeks order said. However, just because the conspiracy to commit murder occurred off the employers premises, does not mean that forfeiture (of benefits) would not be appropriate. There have been numerous cases that have found a sufficient nexus between the crime and public employment to require forfeiture where the specified offense did not occur at the public employees actual place of employment. Moran alcohol was involved. MacLaren said he is hopeful the upcoming autopsy, scheduled for Monday, will provide more information. Anyone with information about the driver and/ or vehicle involved in this incident is asked to call MacLaren at 386-365-6196 or the FHP at 386-7546279. DRIVERContinued From 1A FIXContinued From 1A SALARYContinued From 1ABy STEVE WILSONswilson@lakecityreporter.comA Lake City woman is facing charges of theft of a diamond ring. Jennie Raye Wilson, 38, of SW Lillian Loop, was jailed Monday in connection with the April 25 theft of a diamond ring. The theft took place at the Homes 2 Suites on Florida Gateway Drive, Wilsons former employer. Lake City Police Officer Stuart Robinson reported that he had reported to the Homes 2 Suites on April 25, following the reported theft, according to a police report. The complainant stated that his wife had reported that her diamond ring had been stolen from their room at the motel. After making contact with the motel manager, Wilson was determined to be a suspect. Although Wilson initially denied taking the ring, it was determined later that she had sold a ring similar in description to United Services of America for $350. Robinson then confirmed from the complainant that the ring stolen and then resold did in fact belong to his wife. Wilson is facing charges of larceny of over $300 and of dealing in stolen property and was fired from her job due to the allegations. Wilson The proposed employment agreement indicates Helfenbergers initial annual base salary will be $120,000 Â which is nearly $6,000 mor e than Wendell Johnson was being paid when he retired from the position in April. Johnson, who served as city manager from 2009 until earlier this year, had a base salary of $114,751. The city may agree to a mandatory review of the annual base salary after Helfenbergers initial 180 days of employment, at which time the annual base salary will be reviewed for an increase. Helfenberger will be able to receive two weeks of annual leave in addition to the accrual of annual leave as a full time employee. The city is considering to budget and pay for the professional dues of Helfenberger to the International City/County Management Association and any other dues of associations within Florida. The employment agreement also suggests the city will budget and pay for travel and subsistence expenses under the citys rules when Helfenberger is on official travel for the city to meetings and professional development functions. In addition the city may budget and pay for travel and subsistence expenses for Helfenberger for short courses, institutes and seminars that are necessary for his professional development and for the good of the city. For business use, the city will provide Helfenberger with a laptop computer, software, tablet computer, mobile phone and use of a city owned vehicle. Upon termination of his employment, the equipment must be returned to the city within 24 hours of termination. Helfenbergers termination, in necessary, will exclude the applicable section of the City Personnel Policies and Procedures Manual and will occur when one, or more of the scenarios occur: If the majority of the City Council votes to terminate Helfenberger; If the city reduces base salary, compensation or any other financial benefit of Helfenberger, unless it is applied in no greater percentage than the average reduction of all department heads; If Helfenberger resigns following an offer to accept resignation, whether formal or informal, by the city as representative of the majority of the city council, then he may declare a termination as of the date of the suggestion; or If a breach of contract is declared by either party within a 30-day cure period for either Helfenberger or the city. Severance shall be paid to Helfenberger when employment is terminated. If Helfenberger is terminated the city shall provide a minimum severance payment equal to 12 work weeks of salary at Helfenbergers then current rate of pay and 12 weeks of employee benefits. Helfenberger shall also be compensated for accrued paid time off, of any variety. If Helfenberger is terminated because of a felony conviction, or a plea of no contest or guilty to a felony charge, or for misconduct, then the city is not obligated to pay severance. If Helfenberger voluntarily resigns his position with the city, he shall provide a minimum 30 days notice, unless he and the city agree otherwise. Helfenberger will also be subject to an annual performance review.

Future United States president John Adams wrote this letter to his wife, Abigail, about the first American Independence Day. This second day of July, 1776,* will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more. Celebrated as the most memorable epoch in the history of America. Commemorated by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. Solemnized by pomp and parade from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forevermore. *Revised and edited on July 2 and 3, signed on July 4. Powerful words that still resound through out our great history! Coincidentally, both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, the only signers of the Declaration of Independence later to serve as Presidents of the United States, died on the same day: July 4, 1826, which was the 50th anniversary of the Declaration. Also, although not a signer of the Declaration of Independence, James Monroe, another Founding Father who was elected as President, died on July 4, 1831. He was the third President who died on the anniversary of independence. Calvin Coolidge, the 30th President, was born on July 4, 1872; so far he is the only U.S. President to have been born on Independence Day. As part of the ongoing celebration, in 1778, General George Washington celebrated July 4 with a double ration of rum for his soldiers and an artillery salute. In the same year, our ambassadors to France, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin, held a dinner for their fellow Americans in Paris. The night before the Fourth (July 3) was once the focal point of celebrations, marked by raucous gatherings often incorporating bonfires as their centerpiece. The tallest bonfire was in Salem, Massachusetts, with pyramids composed of as many as forty tiers of barrels (nearly 150 feet high and seen from miles around). The Salem community made the tallest bonfires ever recordedcathedral-like. Today New York City has the largest fireworks display in the country, with more than 22 tons of explosives detonated in 2009. And why not! We Americans are celebrating the birth of our country and of our many precious freedoms. This day gives us Americans yet another opportunity to sing, prayerfully, God Bless America.

This mission will be accomplished through the teamwork of professionals dedicated to truth, integrity and hard work. Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINIONGet to bottom of residency issueControversy swirls yet again in District 10. This time the issue is the residency of one of the challengers to 5-term Lake City Council incumbent Eugene Jefferson. Clarence Tucker freely admits that he only stays in the district (or in Lake City proper, for that matter) one to two nights a week. The rest of the time, he says, he tends to his elderly, ailing mother outside city limits. Complicating matters, the man from whom Tucker claims to rent a room in District 10 recanted his story last month, telling the Lake City Reporter that Tucker doesnt live under his roof at all. I was trying to help a friend out, he said as explanation for why he lied. That boys like a brother to me. Tucker, for his part, now says his friend is lying about having lied. Immediately after his friend changed his story, Tucker told the Lake City Reporter he planned to withdraw from the race anyway. He has yet to do so. The city charter, for its part, is clear. Candidates must live in the district in which they are seeking office for one full year beforehand. Somethings got to give. This issue must be resolved before Election Day on August 28 and the truth whatever it is must come out. There is first a question of fact to determine: Does Mr. Tucker live, for even one or two days a week, within the confines of District 10? If the answer is no, his name must be removed from the ballot. If the answer is yes, there then arises a question of law. That one may be harder. State residency statutes are notoriously vague and leave lots to the imagination. Can you claim as your residence a place you only lay your head once or twice a week? Does it matter that you are otherwise occupied taking care of an elderly parent, or performing some task generally seen as admirable or altruistic? So far, no one has brought these questions to the one individual capable of ruling on them: a judge. In our view, the parties involved or perhaps just a registered voter in District 10 should seek an injunction in court to resolve this matter. Lawyers with whom weve spoken say this is the only way to get definitive action as to who stays on the ballot and who potentially goes. (Please note that neither the supervisor of elections nor the city clerk are legally authorized to intervene in cases like this.) Meanwhile, one local resident has taken a different tack, filing a police report accusing Tucker of perjury by claiming a District 10 residency on official, sworn documents. That could result in criminal prosecution, but its still not clear the names on the ballot would change. As we said, somethings got to give in order for the electoral system here to maintain its credibility. Youd think the other candidates, at least, would want this matter settled as much as we do. Lets hope somebody takes action soon to dispel the cloud that hangs over this race. Day of deliverance LETTERS TO THE EDITORLast week, it was a newsroom in Annapolis, Md. About a month ago, it was Santa Fe High School in Texas. And in February, it was a high school in Parkland. Regardless of our politics, there couldnt be any stronger warning sign that something is going wrong in our country than the prevalence of mass shootings. So we were more than a little encouraged recently when folks from the Texas-based Laura and John Arnold Foundation stopped by our offices to talk about an initiative theyve launched to do something about this problem. There are a lot of people who call for something to be done, but what stands out about the Arnold Foundations work is that it attempts to bridge the political divide that stymies discussion. The foundation focuses on taking the first crucial step of gathering information before offering policy prescriptions. Here is what the Arnold Foundation is doing: Over the next five years, it has pledged to spend $20 million on research into gun violence, and efforts to encourage others to engage in such research. In the short run, the foundation hopes to raise an additional $30 million in private funds. And the foundation is also collaborating with the Rand Corp. to collect and analyze empirical evidence needed to ascertain what could make a meaningful difference. In the long run, the foundations goal is more ambitious. It hopes to spark a massive private and government research effort. The ultimate aim, of course, is to draw the federal government into the research effort. That would provide substantial dollars as well as pull in talented researchers from across the country. If this sounds like so many previous efforts, its not. In this case, the Arnold Foundation is reaching out to organizations that support gun rights including the National Rifle Association and is starting from the premise that the Second Amendment protects gun ownership in America. Those working on this initiative hope that the Heller decision, in which the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the individual right to own guns, can be used to change the national narrative so gun enthusiasts can feel empowered to work with others to find new ways to reduce gun violence. Even though the intention of this initiative is to find ideas that can reduce violence not simply offer a litany of the same old gun-control proposals we recognize that this will be a heavy lift. There is substantial opposition to using federal dollars for such research out of fear that it would be used to advocate for a one-sided political agenda. There may be no way to allay such fears, other than to conduct research that demonstrates there are many ways to save lives without violating individual rights. And to that end, were encouraged to see the Arnold Foundations efforts and look forward to seeing the fruits of this initiative.New approach to curbing violenceDallas Morning News Morris WilliamsMorris Williams is a local historian and longtime retired educator. To the Editor: Why did Stephanie Finnell tell family and friends that she was not going to seek another term on the District 5 School Board? Only after encouraging Hunter Peeler to register for the race did she change her mind. As a mother, why didnt she teach her son that trespassing is against the law and extremely antagonistic?

The Groveland Four aired in late June and delved into a fatal case of legislative injustice that played a pivotal role in the modern Civil Rights movement. The incidents unfurled two hours south of Columbia County in 1949. Demitrius Lavelle Hayes starred as a central figure of The Four, falsely accused of the rape of a white woman. Hayes, a 2008 Columbia High School graduate, portrayed Walter Irvin, who survived the extra-judicial execution attempt by then Lake County Sheriff Willis McCall. The one I actually played, he faked his death and he lived and he told them what had happened, Hayes said. Irvin would later testify that McCall had shot him along with Samuel Shepherd, who he was handcuffed to, in cold blood. Hayes said hes had years of experience acting, appearing in numerous commercials and having worked for a time in Los Angeles. He said he is set to appear as well in an upcoming episode of the VH1 series Love and Hip Hop. Hayes said the documentary role, both culturally significant and timely, was a first for his career. A state Senate resolution was passed in 2017 prompting an official state apology and seeking a posthumous exoneration from the governor to the family of the Four, all of whom have since died. Hayes said the role took on a new importance. The finished product it was very raw and uncut and it was also a story that needed to be told and uncovered, he said. I was really grateful to be part of that. In the roughly 90 minute film, Hayes said he appears in both spoken roles and with voice-over dialogue as Irvin. It was filmed largely in the Orlando area, about 40 minutes east of Lake County last November. It was local, Hayes said. It was Groveland. A lifelong Floridian, he said the location of the events helped him portray Irvin. This is my first time first time playing that type of character, Hayes said. I think me being from my background, where I was raised, coming from the country I was able to do the dialect and portray them to a T. And he said his performance caught the attention of the director who commented on its authenticity. In all he said filming the dramatic portrayals took four wet, cold days in November. It was cold, he said. Oh God, it was freezing. However he said hes found each day of filming brings its own challenge and reward. Its different each day, it depends, sometimes you just go in and you can do the scene and its perfect the first take, Hayes said. Most of the time directors they want to do a couple of different ones to pick out the rawest one. One day when I had to interview with the sheriff (it was) two hours at the studio. One day it was like 13 hours. Family of the Four were at the films private screening, he said. He described the how he felt after the premiere. I was a feeling like wow, he said. I was honored definitely honored. You just have a feeling of accomplishment. At 21, Hayes moved from Lake City to West Palm Beach and then to Orlando, and only recently returned from a brief stint in Los Angeles. With a lifelong passion for performing he said starting out was daunting, and now he said hes considering a move back to the West Coast. Im actually thinking of possibly moving back, Hayes said. I met a lot of industry people. Hayes Hayes, a 2008 CHS graduate, por trayed Walter Irvin, who survived the extra-judicial exe cution attempt by then Lake County Sheriff Willis McCall.

All proceeds from the fundraiser exhibition match will go to the local youth programs and the American Cancer Society. This is will be first annual Boots vs. Badges game which will feature the Columbia County Fire Department (Boots) against the Columbia County Sheriffs Office (Badges). Chris Craft of the fire department and Howard Bulthuis of the sheriffs office partnered with RCCAMN to make this happen. Both Bulthuis and Craft, basketball fans, are happy to finally put on this fundraiser for the children. Ive always wanted to give back to the community, said Craft, who has spent 13 years working in the countys maintenance department. Or (create) a charity. I just didnt have the resources and access to do it. Now Ive developed relationships with different people and more connections. Im just excited to do it now. While the Badges team will be mostly made up of deputies, the Boots team will be composed of various employees within the fire department, Craft says. He expects the contest to be competitive as the winners will receive a trophy. The winning team will retain the trophy until the following year. percent of it is going to charity, he says of the proceeds. There will be a preliminary game held at 6:00 p.m. that night with the Columbia County All-Stars facing the Baker County All-Stars. Admission is $5.00 for ages six and up.

The Team Penske driver also moved within one pole position of tying legendary A.J. Foyt for second on the all-time Indy car list. Power turned two laps around the 0.894-mile oval at an average speed of 182.391 mph to collect the 52nd pole position of his stellar career. I love this place, said Power, who has qualified in the top three in 10 of the 11 Verizon IndyCar Series races this season and has qualified in the top 10 in 21 straight races dating to last season. Its a real tough little bullring oval and, man, Ive been trying to win this (race) for so long. So, obviously, starting the race in a good spot. Power, in the No. 12 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet, will lead an all-Team Penske front row to the green flag in Sundays race (2 p.m. ET, NBCSN and Advance Auto Parts INDYCAR Radio Network).

At least in some sections of the country riven by economic, political and social divisions that led to Brexit, reaching the World Cup semifinals is a welcome distraction from the charged atmosphere. Its a chance to clamber onto traffic lights, fling beer in the air and toast the success of the footballers in an outpouring of delirium not witnessed across England since the last century. For the first time since the 1990s, England is in the last four of a major tournament. England will play Croatia on Wednesday for a place in the final after beating Sweden 2-0 Saturday. The chance to connect everybody through football and to make a difference to how people feel, England coach Gareth Southgate said, that is even more powerful than what we are doing with our results. That is very special. I would imagine there is a big party at home. Not for us. There is still much work to do if England is to reach its first England advances to semifinal after defeating Sweden on Saturday.ENGLAND continued on 4BPro wrestlers arrived in Lake City for annual card at RCC.By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comContinental Championship Wrestlings Road to Wrestlebash 2018 Tour landed in Lake City this past Saturday night.

The team announced the move Saturday. The Pistons also announced they had signed second-round draft pick Bruce Brown Jr. and waived guard Dwight Buycks. Polinsky comes to the Pistons from the Brooklyn Nets. He spent the last 19 seasons with them in various roles, most recently as director of college scouting, and was the coach at Georgia Southern from 1995-99. The 6-foot-5 Brown was taken with the 42nd pick in this years draft. He aver aged 11.4 points a game last season at Miami. Brown was limited to 19 games during the 2017-18 season because of a left foot injury. Buycks averaged 7.4 points in 29 games for the Pistons last season. LPGA CLASSICSei Young Kim sets 72-hole mark at 24 under COURTESYKim will take aim at Sorenstams 72-hole record of 27-under par. Associated PressONEIDA, Wis. Sei Young Kim shot an 8-under-par 64 in the third round of Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic on Saturday to tie the 54-hole record of 24 under and take a commanding eight-stroke lead. Kim, who had a 63 on Thursday and a 65 on Friday, got rolling with an eagle on No. 3 and added six birdies. A birdie on No. 16 tied Annika Sorenstams 24 under at the Mizuno Classic in Japan in 2003. After Kim missed a long birdie putt on the par-3 17th, she hit her tee shot on the 390-yard 18th into the left rough. Her approach was well short of the hole, and her birdie putt missed badly. She made a testy putt to save par. Kim will take aim at Sorenstams 72-hole record of 27-under par, set at the Standard Register Ping in 2001 in Phoenix. Kim will need a 4-under 68 on Sunday to break that record. Kim said she will not be nervous. I just want to keep challenging myself and what I can do, she said. Even if I break it, Ill keep (making) the challenges higher. Thats my goal. Amy Yang is a distant second at 16 under after shooting a 5-under 67. Eight players are within two shots of Yang but 10 shots of the record-setting Kim.NASCARNewgarden looks for 2nd straight win at Iowa By BOBBY BANCROFTAssociated PressWASHINGTON Mark Reynolds homered twice and drove in a career-high 10 runs, Max Scherzer won for the first time since June 5, and the Washington Nationals beat the Miami Marlins 18-4 on Saturday night. Washington has won three straight and scored a combined 35 runs since calling a players-only meeting on Wednesday after falling under .500 for the first time since May 2. Reynolds (5 for 5) tied his career high for hits and equaled the Nationals RBI record. Reynolds hit a two-run homer in the second inning into the same visitors bullpen where his walk-off homer landed on Friday. He followed that up with an RBI double in the second, a two-run single in the fifth, a three-run homer in the sixth, and a two-run single in the seventh. Washington, which has won 14 straight against Miami, broke it open by batting around the order and scoring a season-best seven runs in the fifth inning. Scherzer (11-5), who was 0-4 in his previous five starts, pitched seven innings, allowing four runs on four hits three of which were home runs. The Nationals had been shut out in three of Scherzers previous five starts. Miami starter Wei-Yin Chen (2-6) lasted 4 1/3 innings, allowing seven runs on seven hits. Bryce Harper had three hits and an intentional walk. Starlin Castro and J.T. Realmuto hit the first back-to-back home runs of the season for the Marlins in the fourth inning. Yadiel Rivera hit his first homer of the season in the seventh. TRAINERS ROOM Marlins: OF Brian Anderson was out of the lineup for the first time this season. After playing in Miamis first 90 games, manager Don Mattingly said it was time for a breather. Mattingly said OF Lewis Brinson (right hip) is still sore and doing a little treatment, and thats all.Associated PressNEWTON, Iowa Defending IndyCar champion Josef Newgardens up-and-down season is back on an upswing after a dominant win at Road America two weeks ago. Newgarden is back at Iowa Speedway the scene of perhaps his most impressive performance back in 2016 in hopes of closing the gap further on series leader Scott Dixon. Newgarden is fourth, 50 points behind Dixon, despite a serieshigh three wins in 10 starts. Thats because the Tennessee-born Newgarden finished eighth or worse in a five-race stretch that began in Indianapolis and ended in Texas. Newgarden got things going in the right direction in Wisconsin two weeks ago, leading all but two of 55 laps, and he feels as though his No. 1 Chevy will have an advantage after testing the newly designed aero package at Iowa on June 27. Indianapolis 500 winner Will Power won his 52nd career pole on Saturday, with Newgarden set to start second. Ryan Hunter-Reay was third, followed by Simon Pagenaud. Us testing here is a benefit... (and) I think its more important this year just because its a new car and Iowa is its own animal, said Newgarden, who led a record 282 of 300 laps to win at Iowa two years ago. Even having been to Phoenix, another short oval, I dont think a lot of that really applies here because Iowa is just crazy unique. Its a lot bumpier. Despite being one of the few drivers to run in each of Iowas previous 11 races, Dixon has never won here. His best finish was third in 2016 even though he has claimed the pole three times. Dixon didnt test here either, but hes been dominant of late for Chip Ganassi Racing. Dixon has two wins (Belle Isle and Texas) during a stretch of six consecutive topfour finishes. He qualified sixth on Saturday. Winning at Iowa typically isnt a problem for the resurgent HunterReay, who entered the weekend tied for second with Alexander Rossi, 45 points back of Dixon. Hunter-Reay took first for Andretti Autosport at Iowa in 2012 the year he won the championship and in 2014 and 2015. He was second in 2013 and tied a season high with a third-place finish a year ago. Hunter-Reays No. 28 Honda also topped last months test in Newton as well, and he and his team have clearly found the speed that eluded Hunter-Reay during back-to-back disappointing seasons. But Hunter-Reay acknowledged that, between the new setups and what could be much warmer conditions on Sunday, it should be an interesting race to say the least. The qualifying results havent seemed to matter much at Iowa either, since no pole-sitter has gone on to win the race. We have some good momentum going here at Iowa, Hunter-Reay said. Its just that nobody really knows how the race will play out. Once we get into 50 laps on tires, we still have to go another 20, 30 more. Its going to be really light, very busy behind the wheel. Just a lot less downforce to deal with this year.MLBReynolds has 2 HRs, 10 RBIs, Nationals rout Marlins 18-4 B2
SU NDAY, JULY 8, 2018 OUTDOORS LAKE CITY REPORTER 3B Depth finders see whats down there By MONTY STEPHENSSpecial to the ReporterBoat electronics have progressed at a rapid rate. Seems like just a decade ago, color depth finders were considered to be the ultimate in high technology. Now almost all depth finders feature color displays. Many units feature built-in GPS (Global Positioning System), multiple screen displays, side scan, 3-D sonar and CHRIP (Compressed HighIntensity Radiated Pulse.) There are a lot of options. But at the most basic level, a depth finder produces sound waves that are transmitted through a transducer and picked back up through the same transducer. The depth finder measures the bounce back (echo) of those waves to determine water depth and to identify objects in the water. Objects in the water could be brush, seaweed, or fish. It is that simple. One should keep in mind, when received from the factory these machines are made to fit a wide range of boating needs. So they do need input from the user to adapt it to their specific needs. The three main categories of depth finders are: dedicated units, combo units (with chart plotters), and smart phone units. A dedicated units is a depth finder that does nothing but track water depth and mark objects in the water. Combo units have a GPS built in the unit and allow the boater to have their depth finder and navigation system displayed on one screen. This saves space on tight center consoles and lets the boater focus on only one screen. The third category is the smart phone units. These units use Bluetooth technology to transmit signals from a transducer to a smartphone. The transducer could be mounted on the boat or in a cast-able/floating bobber for some models (Bobber, Fish Hunter, etc.) Whatever the model, the transducer is the heart of the depth finder. Two important aspects for proper functioning of the transducer are: where it is mounted and the cone angle. Most transducers are mounted at the stern of the boat. If the mounting location is near the prop wash or in an area where lots of bubbles are present when running, then it will not give an accurate reading of depth at planning speeds. An option is to use a through hull transducer or one that shoots through the hull. Using one of these approaches allows the transducer to be mounted in an area where it will always be in contact with the water. Transducers can also be selected for cone angle. Many units are dual frequency and allow the user to select the frequency of the cone angle. A wider angle allows more fish to be seen over a wider area but provides poor detail of the bottom. While a narrow angle gives a much better view of the bottom but limits the area under surveillance. Higher-end models have multiple beams, 3-D imaging, side beam, and CHIRP technology. CHIRP send out continuous beams, at varying frequencies as opposed to units that transmit at a single frequency. This technology is considered state-of-the-art and provides greatly improved resolution. A few of the major manufacturers of depth finders include, Hummingbird, Ray Marine, Lowrance, Garmin and others. Regardless of the manufacturer, most units share many of the same characteristics. Here are some tips on setting up your unit. Make Auto mode your go to setting for most conditions. Adjust the Gain to clear up artifact that extends throughout the depths. For artifact appearing higher in the water column, near the surface, adjust the sensitivity time control. Use the Zoom feature for closer detailed looks of the bottom. This feature will help distinguish schools of baitfish from stumps, ledges, or large fish. On most units fish will show as arches. This what you want. If your unit uses a fish symbol to mark fish, change it to a manual display setting. The fish symbol could be blending smaller fish into one fish, or the unit could be picking up other objects in the water and displaying them as fish. Practice with your unit and play around with the settings. This will let you see what works best for your conditions. Bear in mind, saltwater requires a more powerful unit as does lakes with deeper depths. Read the owners manual. Put it on your bedside table and read a few pages every night. If this approach to learning the features of your unit doesnt work for you, search U-Tube for a tutorial on how to use your particular unit. Boat electronics make fishing and navigation easier. But one element of boating that hasnt changed is boating safety. It is up to us to ensure the safety of our vessel and passengers. So practice safe boating and good fishing.COURTESY PHOTOSHumminbird (above) is not only Americas favorite fish finder, its also the leading innovator.

FWC helps support educational lionfish exhibitsFrom staff reportsWe are excited to announce the opening of a new Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) program. The 2018-19 Lionfish Educational Exhibit Program offers public facilities the opportunity to apply for financial assistance in creating educational exhibit displays about the lionfish invasion. The goal of the program is to increase awareness and ensure consistent, accurate messaging. Facilities with existing lionfish educational exhibits or an interest in creating one are encouraged to apply. Approved applicants may be eligible for up to $2,499 in assistance for the creation of educational displays about lionfish. To learn more and apply for the program, visit MyFWC.com/Lionfish. Applications will be accepted from now until March 29, 2019. We hope you will participate in this exciting program and help increase New decals support Floridas manatees, sea turtles From staff reportsFloridas waters and beaches are not only popular with people, but are also key habitats for manatees and sea turtles. More of these iconic species live here than in any other state. The manatee and sea turtle decals, created by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), are a fun way for people to support the research, rescue and management efforts that conserve these species. Every July, the FWC introduces new manatee and sea turtle decals that are available with a $5 donation. The waterproof decals are designed to look good on a vehicles bumper or the side of a boat. Get them when registering or re-registering a vehicle or boat at local tax collectors offices across the state. Florida provides critical habitats for manatees and sea turtles, said Carol Knox, who leads the FWCs Imperiled Species Management Section. Public support is making a difference in helping us conserve these imperiled species. Please get these decals to show your support. Over 6,000 manatees swim in the states coastal waters, rivers and freshwater springs, and about 20,000 sea turtles nest each year on Floridas Atlantic and Gulf coast beaches. The decals help fund manatee and sea turtle conservation efforts. For example, when someone calls the FWCs Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404FWCC (3922) to report an injured, entangled or sick manatee or sea turtle, FWC staff works with partners to respond and rescue the animal. The decals also spotlight important conservation issues: -The Im making a difference manatee decal shows several manatees, including a mother and calf. The back of the decal notes that the manatee is now classified as a threatened species, rather than an endangered species, under the federal Endangered Species Act. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced this change in early 2017, a signal that efforts to conserve the states marine mammal are succeeding. -The Shield your lights for a sea turtle friendly night sea turtle decal shows an adult female loggerhead on the beach against a background of darkened buildings.The back of the decal reports nearly 97,000 loggerhead nests were counted during the 2017 sea turtle nesting season.

4B LAKE CITY REPOR TER SPORTS SUNDAY, JULY 8, 2018 Sports Department 754-0420 World Cup final since lifting the trophy on home soil at Wembley in 1966. But Southgate believes he has instilled the humble mentality in the dressing room that is required to keep the journey going all the way to Luzhniki Stadium next Sunday. Humility has replaced the hubris that defined the celebrity-obsessed David Beckham-era where the furthest the team reached was the quarterfinal stage of any tournament. Just look back on how Harry Maguire, who headed in Saturdays first goal, reported for England duty for the first time last year with his clothing in a black trash bag rather than designer luggage. Ambitions appeared to be thwarted for so long by a culture of entitlement as England gloried in the hype and status of being the birthplace of soccer without backing it up with results. And as players started to collect millions in salaries from their clubs, commitment to the national team was called into question. We dont have renowned world-class players yet, Southgate said, but lots of good young players who are showing on the world stage that theyre prepared to be brave with the ball, try to play the right way, have shown some mental resilience now. At the start of his tenure in 2016, Southgate realized he had to deliver an important message to his players: Any success with England will be greater than anything achieved with their clubs. They have been prepared to park their club rivalries at the door, Southgate said. Weve talked about how important it is to have that spirit. Also, how to recover from adversity. One of the lowest points for English soccer came two years ago days after that European Union referendum in Britain when a team coached by Roy Hodgson was humiliated by Iceland. Under pressure they suffered, Southgate said. They will have days when they are not able to cope with things. But experiencing the misery at Euro 2016 as players or as a fan in the stadium like Maguire helped a Harry Kane-led England advance relatively serenely to its first World Cup semifinal since 1990, according to Southgate. The victories in Russia are also reversing an anomaly. England hosts the worlds richest soccer competition the Premier League but hasnt been able to produce a national team to match. Southgate was on the last England side to reach a semifinal, at the 1996 European Championship, when the team anthem was Three Lions. The footballs coming home lyric is back in vogue in Russia, ringing out from stadiums to bars among the few thousand fans who defied the logistical challenges to follow the team. We have a good balance and the team are together, 53-year-old England fan Andrew Court said outside the stadium in Samara where Maguire and Dele Alli scored the goals against Sweden. Southgate, though, is looking beyond the hollow Footballs coming home concept. Reflecting a studious approach, the platform gained from his greatest day in soccer was used to deliver several powerful messages on Saturday. Above all, Southgate wants more Englishmen playing alongside the Premier League imports. The more remarkable thing is that were in a semifinal, Southgate said. We only have 33 percent of the league to pick from. So that is still a huge problem for us, and were playing some young players who are barely established at their clubs, never mind international careers. But we feel that theyre able to play the way we want to play, playing huge pride, playing with no lack of quality, showing the sort of mentality to work for the group, he said. And its a group that, Southgate emphasizes, reflects the diversity of England and cuts through the economic divide in England where so much wealth is centered in the south. Southgate has singled out the less affluent northern towns where players like Maguire are from. All of these players come from different parts of the country, Southgate said, and theyll be youngsters watching at home from the areas that they come from. Theyll be inspiring.COURTESYAn England soccer fan climbs up a lamppost as fans celebrate on the streets below, in the London Bridge area of London after England won their quarterfinal match against Sweden at the 2018 soccer World Cup, Saturday. ENGLANDContinued From 1B Croatia ends Russias run, advances to World Cup semifinalsFIFAAssociated PressSOCHI, Russia Nyet this time. Although Russia made it further at this years World Cup than most anyone expected, it was Croatia that advanced to the semifinals with a 4-3 shootout victory Saturday following a 2-2 draw. The overachieving hosts, the lowest ranked team in the tournament at No. 70, were trying to make it to the World Cup semifinals for the first time since the Soviet Union finished fourth at the 1966 tournament in England. Even Russian President Vladimir Putin was taken in by the host nations surprising run, at least according to Russia coach Stanislav Cherchesov. Putin called me during the day, and he called me right now, Cherchesov said. He congratulated us on a very good game. He said what we showed on the field was great. I told him we were disappointed. He said we should have our eyes open and make the next steps. The Croats hadnt advanced to the semifinals at the World Cup since 1998, when the country made its first appearance. Croatia will next play England in the semifinals on Wednesday in Moscow. With the crowd silenced following an extra-time header from Croatia defender Domagoj Vida in the 101st minute, Russia defender Mario Fernandes scored with his own header in the 115th to send the match to yet another penalty shootout. Fernandes, who was born in Brazil but rejected a chance to play for that countrys national team in 2011, sent his penalty kick wide of the net in the shootout, giving Croatia the advantage. Both goalkeepers made early saves in the shootout, with an injured Danijel Subasic stopping the opening shot from Fyodor Smolov. Igor Akinfeev later blocked an attempt from Mateo Kovacic. At 1-1, Fernandes missed his shot only the second player to miss in any of the four shootouts at this years World Cup. The teams then traded two scores each before Ivan Rakitic calmly converted the winning penalty. We should have finished the job before penalties but maybe its written in the stars we have to go through the extra drama, said Luka Modric, whose penalty bounced off Akinfeevs hand and the post before entering the other side of the net. Denis Cheryshev gave Russia the lead in regulation time with a long-range shot into the upper corner in the 31st minute. Croatia equalized with Andrej Kramarics header near halftime. I left everything on the field and unfortunately we were unlucky, Russia midfielder Roman Zobnin said. We gave everything we could.Djokovic slams Wimbledon crowd after being booedGRAND SLAM COURTESY PHOTOSIt was the third time Novak Djokovic faced a British player at Wimbledon. Associated PressLONDON Novak Djokovic shrugged off a bad call by the chair umpire that cost him a break in his Wimbledon win over home favorite Kyle Edmund on Saturday. He was less forgiving when it came to the way he was treated by the crowd at the All England Club. There is a certain unwritten borderline where you feel that its a bit too much, Djokovic said about being booed at times by the partisan crowd on Centre Court. I didnt deserve to be treated the way I was treated by certain individuals. Neither the crowd nor a big mistake by the umpire could unglue Djokovic, though, as the three-time champion won 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 to reach the round of 16 for the 11th time at the All England Club. He was robbed of a break at 3-3, 15-40 in the fourth set when the ball bounced twice before Edmund managed to return it over the net. Djokovic complained to the chair umpire but the call stood even though TV replays also showed Edmunds shot had actually landed wide. Edmund ended up holding serve but Djokovic broke at his next opportunity to make sure there will be no British players in the second week of the tournament. I was 100 percent convinced it (bounced) twice, Djokovic said. Anybody can make a mistake. Thats OK. But I dont understand why he (the umpire) didnt allow me to challenge the ball. I asked him. ... So, yes, it was quite a strange decision from (the) chair umpire, but it happens. That wasnt the only point of contention in the match. Djokovic got into a bit of a two-sided argument with the crowd after he was booed following a time violation in the third set. He responded by blowing kisses into the stands. I thought the crowds reaction after that (time violation) was quite unnecessary. A couple (of) guys really, you know, pretending they were coughing and whistling while I was bouncing the ball more or less to the end of the match at that end where I received the time violation. Those are the things obviously that people dont get to see or hear on the TV. I just think its not necessary. Thats what I didnt like. ... My interaction with the crowd, I thought had good things and not great things. I just reacted the way I thought was fair, the way they reacted to me. Edmund, the last British player remaining in the tournament, said he didnt notice anything disrespectful from the crowd, but acknowledged it was a Davis Cup-like atmosphere. It was a great atmosphere to be in, Edmund said. When youre at Centre Court, to have the crowd behind you is a great thing. He also insisted he was unsure whether the ball actually bounced twice on the disputed call in the fourth set. If in real life its hard to tell, then its hard to tell for me when Im scrambling, he said. We need the umpire to get off his chair and go to the TV monitor on the side. It was the third time Djokovic faced a British player at Wimbledon, losing to Andy Murray in the 2013 final and beating James Ward in 2016. But this was the first time he got a reaction like this from the crowd. The crowd was very fair when I played against Andy. Obviously they support their player, he said. But today there was just some people, especially behind that end where I got the time violation, they kept on going, they kept on going, provoking. Thats something that I can tolerate for a little bit, but Im going to show that Im present as well, that they cant do whatever they feel like doing.Nishikori defeats Kyrgios in Wimbledon 3rd roundAssociated PressLONDON Kei Nishikori equaled his best Wimbledon performance as he advanced to the fourth round by beating Nick Kyrgios 6-1, 7-6 (3), 6-4. The 24th-seeded Nishikori of Japan won the first set in just 16 minutes, before seeing off an improved performance from his Australian opponent for the remainder of the match. Nishikori, runner-up at the U.S. Open in 2014, has twice previously made it through to the last 16 at the All England Club. He was defeated by Milos Raonic in 2014 and retired hurt during the second set against Marin Cilic in 2016. Nishikori and the 15th-seeded Kyrgios, a former Wimbledon quarterfinalist, began their match on No. 1 Court only after 7 p.m. local time, meaning light was fading toward the end of the 1 1/2-hour match. Nishikori next faces 138th-ranked Ernest Gulbis, after the Latvian became the first man in six years to reach the fourth round having come through qualifying. Tiafoes problems Frances Tiafoe blamed stomach problems for derailing his bid to become the youngest U.S. man in Wimbledons fourth round since 1990. The 20-year-old Tiafoe said he started feeling badly late in the third set after taking the opening two against Karen Khachanov of Russia before fading to a 4-6, 4-6, 7-6 (3), 6-2, 6-1 loss. Body just didnt feel right, Tiafoe said. The loss is definitely going to hurt, he added, because for the first two sets, Khachanov had no chance. Just felt it was completely in my hands, Tiafoe said. As for the two last lopsided sets, Tiafoe said he gave everything I was able to do. Its the third round of Wimbledon. I would never throw the match. B4

Now shes announced her retirement as executive director of the Suwannee Valley United Way, and is preparing to leave the position shes held for 19 years. However, she said its work is still her passion. There are still a lot of things I want to do for United Way, said Dopp. There are a number of tasks that I want to complete for the organization as a volunteer and the board knows that. Ill just have to stay out of the way of the new person. United Way is now on the lookout for Dopps replacement and she said she hopes it is a speedy process. We actually started working on this last July but youre still trying to do all the other day to day work in between, Dopp said. It has been a process. A executive search committee will now screen applicants and conduct interviews so that by late August or early September United Way might have a new executive director ready to oversee another year of fund raising. Dopp said she was the first full time director of the organization, and she said the role had changed greatly in that time. The position was not at all what it is now, Dopp said. She has a history of work with nonprofits. Before her time as United Way director, Dopp headed up a domestic violence center. Prior to that she worked with a nonprofit hospital and in between she said she worked in the media. Dopp spoke bluntly about her views of the changes shes encountered over the years, and what she saw as her accomplishments in that time. In terms of changes there have been both positive changes and negative changes, Dopp said. Obviously the positive change is that we have applied for and then been successful in receiving a lot of grant funds to provide a lot of programs for our community that otherwise might not have been provided. Among her proudest accomplishments she said was a grant in 2002 that turned into what is now the food bank operated by Catholic Charities and the homeless coalition. One of the big ones was that in 2004 we started the food bank which was I think a big accomplishment of United Way during my tenure, she said. Dopp said when she first started as director in the late s she saw a need for those projects. I realized that two unmet community needs were the absence of a local food bank and the absence of a homeless coalition to serve our area, she said. Also on the list of accomplishments was their new offices off SW State Road 47. I think our community should be very proud of this building, she said. Now were in a building thats 100 percent paid for. Its a huge accomplishment. However, among the hurdles shes encountered, Dopp said finding continued funding remained a challenge for the nonprofit charity organization that oversees four counties. In terms of business financial support in our community it has continued to be a year to year challenge, she said. The community has grown, but it doesnt necessarily equate to the number of business that support United Way growing, Dopp said. So its a continual effort to cultivate relationships with businesses. Outside of staying involved as a volunteer, Dopp talked about what she planned to do in retirement. My classic joke I guess, what do you plan to do when you retire? Dopp said. Do less. Have more time to spend with my children and my grandchildren.Dopp: It has been a process TONY BRITT/Lake City ReporterRita Dopp (from left) addresses United Way of Suwannee Valley staff members Jeannie Carr, Jennifer Lee, Schara Wilson, Jamie Pelham, Abraham Perry, Susie Roman and Lynne Hodges during a recent meeting.

2C LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, JULY 814, 2018Dont play games with the emergency fundDear Dave, My husband and I finally have our full emergency fund in place. Like you recommend, weve kept it in a money market account with check writing privileges for easy accessibility. Recently, we heard about short-term bond funds with a higher interest rate than our current money market account. Our money would be available for withdrawal if needed, and we would only lose the interest. Is it okay to move half of our emergency fund into one of these bond funds to take advantage of the higher interest rate? Ferisa Dear Ferisa, Absolutely not! Under no circumstances should you do something like that. An emergency fund is not an investment. Youll never build wealth and get rich off your emergency fund. Thats not what its there for. I understand this might be the first time in your lives youve had a nice chunk of cash in the bank. I also get that its hard to let it just sit there and make no money. But an emergency fund is insurance, not an investment. Its a rainy day fund, and its whole purpose is to sit there safe and wait until life throws unexpected expenses in your face. Think about it this way. Insurance costs you money to protect things that make you money like your home. Its also there to cover things you otherwise would not be able to afford. When you have an emergency fund in place, you dont have to dip into your 401(k), your IRA, or go into debt. Why? Because your emergency fund provides insurance against those kinds of things. Let your emergency fund sit right where it is, Ferisa. Besides, its a really bad idea to buy bonds in an environment where interest rates are increasing. Bonds have an inverse relationship to interest rates. So, as interest rates climb youll lose out if youre playing around with bonds! Dave Dear Dave, Our daughter just turned 10 years old. Is now the right time to start giving her an allowance, and start teaching her about money? Danielle Dear Danielle, Im glad youre going to teach your daughter about money. But in my mind, theres never a time for an allowance. I believe that kind of thinking, and using words like allowance, are some of the best ways to instill an attitude of entitlement in a child. I dont think you want your daughter growing up with the idea she deserves money simply because shes alive. My advice is to develop a method by which she can earn commissions. Write down a daily or weekly list of jobs around the house that are age-appropriate she will be responsible for doing. Then, at the end of the week, she gets paid for jobs she completed and she doesnt get paid for the ones she didnt do. The idea is to teach her that work creates money, and teach a healthy work ethic at the same time. Of course, there are some things a child should be expected to do without financial reward. Everyone needs to pitch in, and do certain things to help when theyre part of a family. And once youve taught her about the importance and rewards of work, make sure to also teach her about the three uses for money saving, spending, and giving!

Dave RamseyCEO of Ramsey SolutionsDAVE SAYS NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICEHurricane Irma brought numerous impacts to the Florida Big Bend, southwest Georgia and southeast Alabama including widespread downed trees and powerlines, roads blocked by trees, power outages, and trees on homes. Two people died during the event one due to a car crash (Liberty County) and another that had a heart attack (Worth County). Two indirect deaths occurred due to carbon monoxide from a generator (Taylor County).By Samantha GrenrockUniversity of Florida/IFAS CommunicationsIts easy to take things like electricity, Wi-Fi and cell service for granted until a hurricane blows through and knocks out these modern conveniences, sometimes for days at a time. This was the case last year when Hurricane Irma left more than 6.5 million Floridians without power, according to the National Weather Service. But there are things you can do now to get yourself technologically prepared for an outage, according to a University of Florida expert. Step one: know your priorities when it comes to power use. For most people experiencing power loss, the core priorities are likely having a sufficient supply of daily medications and the capacity to cook and keep food cold. Information and communications technologies and emergency lighting are probably second only to food preservation and preparation, said Hal Knowles, associate change agent in the Program for Resource Efficient Communities, part of UFs Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. As you prepare for hurricane season and the possibility of a power outage, have a plan and build or restock your emergency preparedness kit: Back-up generator If the power grid goes down, a backup generator can ensure that you can power various appliances and devices in your home. There are two types of generators on the market, Knowles said: internal combustion and solar. Internal combustion generators use fuel such as gasoline or diesel to generate electricity. Solar generators convert sunlight into electricity thats stored in a battery for later use. If youre using an internal combustion generator, know how to use it safely. Using a generator inside or in a partially enclosed space can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning, which is why you should only use them outside, more than 20 feet away from doors, windows and vents, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Food and cooking supplies Refrigerated or frozen food wont stay preserved if your power is out for multiple days. So, have a portable cooler and ice on hand for temporary food storage, Knowles said. Also, consider have a heating device, such as an outdoor grill, to cook perishables after the power is out. Its recommended that you have at least three days of non-perishable food and drinking water for all sheltered building occupants, according to Ready. gov. Radios When internet and cellular services are down, two-way radios, such as walkie-talkies, and short-wave ham radios can keep you connected to family and neighbors, Knowles said. Many two-way radios will also let you tune in to the NOAA All Hazards Weather broadcasts, which will keep you updated on emergency advisories. Portable lighting When the power is out, battery-powered flashlights, headlamps and lanterns will help you navigate your home in the dark, Knowles said. Batteries Since you may not know when the power will come back on, its a good idea to have extra batteries for devices such as radios and flashlights. For devices charged via USB ports, portable power banks can help, so long as you charge them up before an outage, Knowles said. Surge protection When the power does come back on, power surges can damage some electronics. Surge protectors, or just unplugging all non-essential electrical devices, can help protect these items, Knowles said. For more information, visit disaster. ifas.ufl.edu.

McDonalds wants nonsense cheese lawsuit dismissedBy HOWARD COHENMiami HeraldIf two South Florida McDonalds customers class action lawsuit against the fast food giant is allowed to proceed because they are upset they have to pay for a Quarter Pounder with Cheese when they dont want the cheese, it would create utter chaos for the retail food industry. That was McDonalds response in papers filed Friday to a lawsuit filed on May 8 by Cynthia Kissner of Broward and Leonard Werner of Miami-Dade in the U.S. District Court in Fort Lauderdale. Kissner and Werner complained that they have been charged the full price of a Quarter Pounder with Cheese, one of McDonalds signature sandwiches, even after they asked that the burger be modified to hold the cheese. The class action suit, filed on their behalf by Andrew Lavin of the Miamibased Lavin Law Group, asks for at least $5 million. The suit claims the Quarter Pounder used to be sold in cheese and no cheese versions. The price differential is between 30 cents to 90 cents more for the cheese version. Prices for a Quarter Pounder with Cheese vary by franchise, but average about $4.20 for the single and $6.20 for the double. The McDonalds companys response, filed by Jennifer Olmedo-Rodriguez of the Miami law firm Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney, calls the May complaint nonsense. McDonalds, based in Delaware, asks that the Fort Lauderdale court dismiss the suit on the grounds it doesnt even offer a Quarter Pounder without cheese as a regular menu item on its menu boards. Kissner and Werners allegation that McDonalds restaurants still offer the plain Quarter Pounder hamburger without cheese as an advertised and listed menu item is incorrect, the response reads. In fact, Plaintiffs admit that (f)or some time, McDonalds has not listed as menu items either the Quarter Pounder (without cheese), the Double Quarter Pounder (without cheese), or value meals including these products. For more than five years, the only version of the Quarter Pounder that McDonalds has advertised and displayed on its menu boards is the version with cheese, according to the fast food chains response. Thus, when a customer orders a Quarter Pounder with cheese or a Double Quarter Pounder with cheese as displayed on the menu, but asks the restaurant to hold the cheese, the customer is customizing a standard menu item to meet a personal preference, in the same way a customer may omit pickles or onions. Lavins suit countered that the sandwich is available sans cheese when ordered off McDonalds app. First of all, within the past couple months McDonalds has updated its mobile app and if you want you can, in fact, purchase a Quarter Pounder using the mobile app, Lavin told the Miami Herald in May. So McDonalds is offering two specific products: one is a Quarter Pounder and one is a Quarter Pounder with Cheese. But if you go into the restaurant that option is not available to you. McDonalds disputes Lavins claim and says Werner and Kissner have suffered no injuries. The customers decision to refuse the cheese advertised as part of the sandwich, and which the restaurant is perfectly willing to supply, is no basis for imposing liability on McDonalds Corp. Any such notion is based on the second fundamental flaw in Plaintiffs theory of liability: that retail restaurants have some legal obligation to reduce the price of a standard menu item to reflect the customers decision to decline some ingredient or component of that item. This is, in a word, nonsense, OlmedoRodriguezs response reads. Common sense and common human experience dictates that if a customer enters a restaurant and orders a listed menu item, such as a BLT sandwich, but elects to customize it to meet dietary restrictions or preferences, such as by omitting the mayonnaise, the restaurant has no duty to modify the listed price of that item to reflect the value of the mayonnaise, according to the response. The core premise of Kissner and Werners complaint that restaurants have a legal duty to reduce the price of an item to reflect a customers decision to hold or delete an ingredient, not only has no basis in law, but would create utter chaos in the retail food industry. Kissiner and Werner have until July 13 to respond to McDonalds motion to dismiss the suit.Lawyer: It would create utter chaos. US and China slap big tariffs against each otherBy DON LEELos Angeles TimesSHANGHAI The United States and China on Friday slapped hefty tariffs on tens of billions of dollars of each others exports, firing the biggest shots yet in an intensifying trade fight between the worlds two largest and intertwined economies. There was no eleventh-hour reprieve as President Donald Trump followed through on his threat to apply 25 percent levies on $34 billion of Chinese products, mostly machinery and industrial parts. Minutes after midnight Eastern time when the tariffs took effect, Beijing accused the United States of launching the largest trade war in economic history, and said it had no choice but to apply the same tariff percentage on $34 billion of American goods, mostly farm products and other foods. The tariffs and retaliatory tariffs amount to penalties totaling $17 billion, a tiny amount given the size of the two economies, which have a combined gross domestic product of roughly $30 trillion. Nonetheless, the duties will hurt sales and disrupt supply chains for some industries and businesses. Among the hardest hit will be U.S. soybean farmers. Chinas tariffs are targeting agricultural and food products, including grains, tobacco and whisky, products largely from states that backed Trump and home to influential GOP lawmakers. The U.S. duties are aimed at hitting Chinas supply chain and intermediate parts supporting the countrys hightech manufacturing. More worrisome, the latest tariff actions and the increasingly heated rhetoric from both sides have raised alarms that the battle will escalate or drag on, chilling confidence, roiling financial markets and ultimately bringing down the broader economy. There was no indication of new trade talks between the two sides. U.S. businesses and congressional Republicans have increasingly urged Trump to back away from applying such broad-based tariffs, but the president has made punitive duties, or threat of them, his instrument of choice to tackle Americas trade deficits and Chinas mercantile economic behavior, including forced technology transfer policies. On Thursday, Trump threatened to slap duties on all $500 billion of goods imported from China. Chinese officials have repeatedly vowed that they will stand firm and take comprehensive measures to protect the interests of China and its people. And Chinese President Xi Jinping and others have sought to woo European and other countries to back Beijings push against what it sees as Trumps unilateral protectionism. Cristina M. Fletes/St. Louis Post-Dispatch/TNSSoybean growers will be among the hardest hit from Chinese tariffs. C3

Nearly half of Puerto Ricans surveyed in Florida said they are not returning to the island, while most listed not knowing English as their No. 1 challenge in adjusting to life on the mainland, a new survey shows. In one of the first surveys of this population after Hurricane Maria, conducted by Florida International University and commissioned by the Puerto Rican Alliance of Florida, 1,000 Puerto Ricans were asked about their lives in the state, including their reasons for leaving the island, level of education and current employment in Florida. FIU professor Dr. Eduardo Gamarra, one of the lead authors of the study, said the language barrier topping the list of challenges was one of the studys most surprising findings. I think for a lot of people, including myself, we think that English in Puerto Rico has been important enough so that when people migrate theres not a problem with speaking English, Gamarra said. The study divided interviewees into four categories, based on the date of arrival in Florida: between 2017 and 2018; 2015 and 2016; 2012 and 2014; and before 2011. Participants were reached by phone in Orlando (61 percent), Tampa (22 percent), Miami (11 percent) and Fort Lauderdale (6 percent). Nearly 18 percent said they did not speak English when they got to Florida, while 16.6 percent said they had trouble finding a job, and 7.6 said they faced a high cost of living. The study also shows that among those who arrived after Hurricane Maria, between 2017 and 2018, Puerto Ricans who came to Florida were mostly highly educated: about 67 percent have a university degree and up to 7.4 percent had a graduate degree. Asked if they would return to the island, 43 percent said no. Asked how long they planned to stay in Florida, nearly 56 percent chose indefinitely. Only 1.2 percent said they were staying for three to six months and nearly 2 percent said they are staying for six months to a year. About 41 percent said they didnt know how long theyd stay. Among the reasons they cited for leaving the island, job opportunities topped the list (19.8 percent), followed by searching for a higher quality of life (19.2 percent), the precarious economic situation on the island (18.3 percent) and being closer to family residing in the states (11.8 percent). More than 75 percent said they had family in Florida before making the move, the data show. The new study, which has a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points, gives insight into a Florida community that is often hard to track and quantify, its authors said. We built the sample group, Gamarra said. It was really difficult to find Puerto Ricans. Theres no database that tells you where Puerto Ricans are.

Johns: Its just a really good timeBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comSkip Johns is world-re nowned for his banjo playing prowess. From the stage of the Grand Ole Opry to a European tour, when hes armed with his banjo, he can play nearly any tune to dazzle most audiences. He was raised during a time when it was common for family and friends gather at a location play music on their front porch as a way of socializing. While his banjo playing talents have taken him to places hes only dreamed of before, hes never forgotten his musical roots in Columbia County and now he helps budding musicians master their instruments during local music sessions called SongFarmers, which follows is built on the concept of music being used as the impetus of community socialization. The SongFarmers sessions are open invitation for any musicians that want to participate and the anniversary isnt expected to vary from the format. During the sessions, the musicians form a semi-circle with everyone facing the audience and they start at one end of the semi-circle with one musician playing a song. People in the semi-circle who know the song are welcomed to join in and accompany the musician with their instrument. We have a lot of beginners who dont feel comfortable doing a song in front of people like this and they just say pass and we go to the next musician, Johns said. Usually theyll come here once or twice and by the third time, theyll put a song in. The audience sings and its just a really good time. Its like a very expanded front porch Â Thats what we tr y to make it like anyway. The SongFarmers music during the sessions includes selections that are Country, Rockabilly, Bluegrass, Gospel, Classical to Rock. We play from Buffet to Dylan, Johns said. We play just about any kind of music you can imagine. We even have dulcimers every once in a while. The SongFarmers primary focus is stringed-instruments. Linda Johns, Skips wife, said stringed-instruments seems to be whats easiest and what most people seem to play. Its strictly acoustic instruments Â nothing with electric amplification, she said. We do use microphones, primarily for voices, because some people sing very softly. She said instruments common in the sessions include: guitars, banjoes, dulcimers, violins/fiddles, up-right bass and mandolins. We just never know what instruments people will have, its mostly guitars, Linda Johns said. We tell people its whatever you want to play. From blues to Bluegrass, from Buffet to Dylan Â everybody has got their own favorite of music and genre. Linda Johns said the overall organization is called WoodSongs and was started by folk singer Michael Jonathan. The organization has chapters across the country called SongFarmers, which is part of Woodsongs. She said Jonathan stared the concept as a way to return to the old days when people gather in places in their communities and sing or play music in schools, pubs, on their front porches and other venues. They would get together on a regular basis and learn, she said. It was just a get together but it was very community oriented. It was a way they would get together and socialize, eat, dance and play music. COURTESY Top: Skip Johns performs with Karen Goines and her daughter, Cora Goines, at St. James Episcopal Church.

Get involved in physical and mental activities that you find stimulating. Make a point to tell someone you care. A romantic gesture will lead to an interesting chain of events. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Emotions will surface when dealing with personal matters. Dont get into an argument with someone as stubborn as you are or youll both have regrets. You cannot take back what youve said or change the effect your words have on someone you love. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Look for a way to expel energy, but dont take risks that can result in injury. Home improvements are favored, but if you overspend, stress will leave you wishing you had taken frugality into consideration. Impulse is best tempered. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Participate in something youve never done; someone you encounter will make you an offer you cannot refuse. A skill or talent you have mastered will turn into a lucrative pastime. A change in your lifestyle looks inviting. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Dont compensate for others. Do whats best for yourself and keep moving forward. Refrain from feeling guilty or giving in to someone using emotional tactics to persuade you to take on more than you can handle mentally, physically or emotionally. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Youll come up with interesting alternatives when faced with a dilemma. Dont take off on a day trip without proper planning. Dealing with friends and relatives will give you an interesting perspective regarding personal traits you possess. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Dont let situations at home drag you down. Walk away from melodrama and toward the people who share your interests and give you the most encouragement. A romantic gesture will take you by surprise. Dont overdo it. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Look at whats involved before you commit to something you know little about. Ask for the facts and figures as well as whats expected of you, and prepare to say no to anyone trying to rope you into a joint venture. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Look for the truth, and question anyone who could have ulterior motives. Keeping your mind and body active will help you stay in shape as long as you pay attention and dont take chances that could result in an emotional setback. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Check out what everyone else is doing; youll find a way to complement whats going on around you. Your insight and input will be appreciated and lead to unexpected rewards. A change will give you a new lease on life. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Check out alternative ways to pursue your goals. Dont let an emotional incident ruin your plans or keep you from sharing with someone you love. Work on personal improvements, not trying to change others. Anger is a waste of time. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Count your money, look over your investments and make decisions about pending legal or contractual matters that need to be resolved. Trust your intuition to lead you down the right path. Remain positive and youll make smart choices and respected adjustments. Twelve-step programs offer sexual addiction healingDEAR ABBY Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com DEAR ABBY: After reading the letter from Dumbstruck in Chicago (April 24), whos dating a recently divorced man who was unfaithful to his ex-wife through multiple affairs and one-night stands with prostitutes, I cannot stay silent. That man screams of being a sex addict. He needs the help of a certified sex addiction therapist before he wrecks another womans life. Dumbstruck should RUN -not walk -to the nearest S-Anon meeting. Its a 12-step program for people who have been affected by another persons sexual behavior. These behaviors include infidelity by emotional or physical affairs, one-night stands with prostitutes, hanging out in strip clubs and porn addiction. S-anon saved my sanity and gave me the courage to offer my husband of 30 years a choice -recovery or divorce. Because he knew I was serious, he reluctantly went into Sexaholics Anonymous (SA) as well as therapy with a certified sex addiction therapist (CSAT) and has been sexually sober for five years. Our marriage is better today than I ever dreamed it would be. Sex addiction is a disease and needs to be recognized as the cause of ruining many marriages and tearing families apart. Please, Abby, suggest SA and S-Anon when you reply to people who write you about these issues. -ANONYMOUS IN KENTUCKY DEAR ANONYMOUS: Thank you for writing. I have recommended the resources you mentioned in my column in the past. Sexaholics Anonymous and S-Anon have been in existence for more than 35 years and have helped many individuals stop unhealthy, destructive cycles of behavior. There are chapters nationwide. Readers, to find a meeting near you, visit sa.org or sanon.org. DEAR ABBY: I was raped by a man I thought was a friend. Since then, I dont accept mens opinions, including those I work for. When they try to give me constructive criticism, I shut down. I know I need therapy. How do I get past this thing and become a productive employee? I no longer want to be just another number and/or statistic. -GETTING PAST THIS DEAR GETTING PAST: Not all men are rapists, and not all rapists are men. What happened to you was appalling, and I hope you reported it to the police so it wont happen to another trusting friend of his. You know you need therapy, so why not contact a rape treatment center and ask for help now? If you do, it will help you in many areas of your life, in addition to your work environment. DEAR ABBY: Im 18 and have been working a minimum-wage job for a little over a year. Ive saved up a good bit of money, and it has taken a while to do, but I really want to travel. Should I be responsible and keep saving or use the money to buy a plane ticket? -BROKE AND RESTLESS DEAR B & R: I think you already know the answer to your question, but allow me to point out that the more money you save, the farther (and longer) you will be able to travel.
4D SU NDAY, JULY 8, 2018 LIFE LAKE CITY REPORTER Leave No Trace: a touching father-daughter love storyBy COLIN COVERTStar TribuneIt doesnt take long for Leave No Trace to tell you that its a well written, low-key, adult story. Theres the languid pacing that leaves you breathing room to observe things for yourself and interpret them from your own viewpoint. Theres the absorbing, insightful way its leading characters quietly interact, and the sense of conviction about the challenging subject matter. The admirably restrained director Debra Granik, whose work is so straightforward its eccentric, deals with a troubled veteran and his 13-yearold daughter living off the grid. Dont let the unconventional lifestyle trigger your anxiety neurotransmitters. This is a loving, tender, protective family unit determined to remain side by side as long as possible. How deeply that does and doesnt work out is the films drama, with results making your heart pound in ways Marvel movies never do. Will, played by the long-underappreciated character virtuoso Ben Foster, has carried post-traumatic stress disorder home from his time in the military. There are no scenes of Mideast war slipped in here to give him a visible back story. Thats dead weight youd find in a shallower film. What we learn about him comes from the way he interacts with his daughter Tom (Thomasin Harcourt Mc Kenzie, a luminous N ew Zealand-born dis covery with a flawless American accent). Will and Tom are a solid team as they collect water, grow their own food, gather mushrooms, fold up and relocate their tents and practice guarding against unwelcome arrivals like hungry animals. What looks like an ambitious season of camping in the woods gradually comes into focus as Wills long-term commitment to raise his girl in a peaceful place far away from American society. Will keeps their homesteading all but invisible in Forest Park, a nature preserve on the moun tains just west of Portland. There are occasional trips into the noisy city when Will visits Veterans Affairs, fills his prescriptions for pills he doesnt take, then sells them to a dealer for grocery money. The authorities dont enter their lives until they are discovered by a jogger and caught for the minor crime of living on public land. Returned to society and interviewed by social services, theyre treated with genuine concern and touching compassion. Its against fundamental rules to raise a child Wills way, even though Toms case worker is stunned at how well he has educated her. Wills mental condition is studied, and father and daughter are allotted residence in a commune operated by a lumberman who takes Will on his staff to cut Christmas trees. Tom is puzzled, then intrigued by meeting a boy her own age for the first time, and she finds the idea of having a roof over her head intriguing. But renegade Will has difficulty dealing with being confined indoors, and even more trouble adjusting to the helicopters that haul off fallen trees. Its never explicitly stated why those whirling blades trouble him. It doesnt need to be. There are no cues from the soundtrack informing us what we ought to feel and why. Its our privilege to weigh Wills uncomfortable reaction to humanity (which we see here at its best; absolutely no one is less than kind to this family) and Toms fawn-like openness and curiosity around others. And its our duty to consider what should hap pen when Tom and Will see their paths diverge. This is a family love story of surprising power and depth. Eight years ago Granik gave us the unforgettable Ozark drama Winters Bone, which introduced us to Jennifer Lawrences gifts in a way no other performance in her career has matched. Graniks new film is not nearly as bleak. What the two movies have in common is their detailed attention to the social and physical lives of marginal people, and acting that is honest to the core. And, like the earlier film, this one also debuts an actress of remarkable promise. McKenzie, who appeared in Peter Jacksons The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, captures Toms soul with breathtaking tenderness. She is one of those stellar young talents who cant be considered a rookie in any manner, and since her heart-touching performance here, she has been added to several star-studded upcoming films. But since theres nothing stronger than a first impression, dont miss the opportunity to see this. Tribune News ServiceBen Foster and Thomasin McKenzie in Leave No Trace. To help reduce your risk of obesity five healthy habitsBy MELISSA HEALYLos Angeles TimesMothers lead the way for their children. And new research finds that the paths that moms walk (or the couches they sit and smoke on) make a powerful difference in their childrens propensity to become obese. A study that tracked close to 17,000 female nurses and their 24,289 kids has found that women who practiced five healthy habits maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly, eating a nutritious diet, consuming no more than moderate quantities of alcohol and not smoking cigarettes had adolescents that were 75 percent less likely to be very overweight than the children of moms who practiced none of those healthy habits. When kids followed their moms along that optimally healthy path, they were 82 percent less likely to be obese in adolescence than were the children who followed their mothers down a path including none of the healthy behaviors, the study found. The new research was published this week in the journal BMJ. Parents genetic contributions to their offspring do influence a childs propensity to obesity. But the steep run-up in child obesity seen in the span of fewer than two generations cant possibly be explained by genes alone. Today, nearly 1 in 5 children between the ages of 6 and 19 is considered obese, a rate thats more than tripled since the 1970s. Since nature cant be blamed, the authors of the new research went looking for the influence of nurture in driving child obesity. (And lets face it: When you think of nurture or blame, for that matter moms are No. 1.) The new study parses out which healthy habits seem to contribute most to protecting teens from obesity. Moms own weight status appeared to exert an outsize influence on her kids risk for obesity. The children of women whose body mass index falls in the healthy weight range were 56 percent less likely to be obese than were the offspring of either underweight or obese moms. The children of mothers who dont smoke were 31 percent less likely to be obese than were the children of moms who did smoke. When mothers got 150 minutes or more of moderate-to-vigorous exercise a week, their kids were 21 percent less likely to be obese in adolescence than were the children of less active moms. So few of the women who participated in the study were considered heavy drinkers that the authors could not compute the influence of high alcohol consumption on the obesity risks of their offspring. But they did find a small benefit to the children of women who were light or moderate drinkers over teetotalers. When mom consumed between one and seven servings per week, her kids risk of obesity was between 11 percent and 20 percent lower, respectively. However, the children of women whose diets scored in the top 40 percent of the federal governments healthy-eating guidelines were not less likely to be obese than were the children of women whose nutrition choices landed them in the remaining 60 percent. Given mothers seemingly key role in preparing meals and modeling good nutrition habits, this finding was a bit of a surprise. That moms dietary choices were not as influential as her other health-related choices may reflect a reality of modern-day childhood, the authors explained: Childrens diets are influenced by many factors, including school lunches and the food options they encounter in their neighborhoods. The new findings lend support to the idea that programs to reduce obesity in children need to look beyond the children themselves. Recess and gym classes can be restored, school lunches can be improved and television advertising aimed at kids can be limited. But families are still early and powerful influences on childrens preferences. And programs targeting families and sometimes parents alone appear to be effective in protecting children from obesity as they grow and their horizons expand. The stakes are high: A 2017 study by researchers at Harvards T.H. Chan School of Public Health calculated that 57 percent of todays kids are on track to become obese by the time they reach 35. Unless the inexorable rise in child obesity can be reversed, the study suggested, obesity will be the new normal. And the struggle is especially acute for low-income families, for which child obesity is a growing problem. Food that is high in fat and calories and low in nutrition is cheap and ubiquitous, making it one of the few indulgences a parent struggling to make ends meet can afford to say yes to. But even for imperfect role models, all is not lost. Toting up good habits where she can, a mom with a few flaws can make a difference in her childrens obesity risk, the study authors noted. Maybe, for instance, mom is obese and still smokes. When women maintained a healthy diet, exercised for 150 minutes or more per week, and drank between one and seven servings of alcohol per week, their kids risk of being obese was 23 percent lower. In short, any good habits matter, said Qi Sun, a Harvard professor of nutrition and senior author of the new study. When it comes to lowering her kids risk of obesity, he said, a mothers overall healthy lifestyle really outweighs any individual healthy lifestyle factors. D4
