The road to DC How will daycare kids get home?BUS DRIVER SHORTAGE School district cuts bus service to Happy House, citing a lack of drivers.By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comThe wheels on the bus go round and round, but there arent enough drivers to go around forcing some Columbia County students to wait until another route wraps up before anyone is available to take them home. A shortage of bus drivers is troubling the school district, said Superintendent Lex Carswell. To free up resources, the district has stopped providing transportation to an after-school program at the Happy House daycare, which is lashing out at the decision. Its just a fiscal decision, Carswell said. We love the programs they run, but we got to concentrate on our students. Mechanics are regularly driving buses to fill in for drivers, he said. Students are having to wait until 4:30 on some days to go home. Were doing everything we can to find drivers, Carswell said. Marcia Kazmierski, who sits on the board of directors at Happy House, said Carswells explanation is an excuse to end the partnership. Were kind of questioning the reasoning, Kazmierski said.

By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comIts hard to imagine Florida Gateway College getting only partial funding from the state to set up a federally certified aviation maintenance program, Gov. Rick Scott told the Lake City Reporter during a campaign stop Thursday. The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity awarded FGC an $800,000 grant late last year to establish a Federal Aviation Administration 147 school, also known as an aircraft and powerplant, or A&P, program. College administrators say thats not nearly enough for such a program, which can cost up to several million dollars to establish. But Scott said theres hope for the state to cover the rest, too. If they fund a portion of it, its very rare they wouldnt fund the rest, he said during an appearance at Halpatter Brewing Co. The college had asked for about twice amount the state awarded, and even that was an optimistic figure for how much it costs to start and run a 147 school, FGC President Lawrence Barrett said in April. If the state will allow it, the college could use the money to hire consultants who would help search for other funding sources. Whether setting up a 147 school is a smart move is another question entirely, Barrett and other college officials have previously said, expressing concerns about low enrollment numbers in such programs throughout the country. Barrett could not be reached for comment for this story. During a Columbia County Economic Development Advisory Board meeting Wednesday morning, Superintendent Lex Carswell said the school district is waiting to see what the college does. If FGC does end up establishing the 147 school, Carswell said it would make sense for the district to further scale back its own North Florida Aviation Maintenance Academy. We believe the college should take the lead, Carswell said. The district has already downsized the academy, which will no longer offer core classes such as math starting this coming school year. The original vision was for the academy to be a standalone school, he said. It previously offered science, math, social studies and language arts through Florida Virtual School and history through an on-site teacher, whose contract has not been renewed. That arrangement was inefficient when students can just take those classes at Columbia High School and Fort White High School. We had a bad model, Carswell said. 2A FR IDAY, JUL YY 13, 2018 D aA ILY BRIEFING L AA KE C II T YY RR EPO RR TE RR 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+.

Scott: School may be funded in fullAV II AT II O NN ACA DEDE M YY Cant imagine FGC would be asked to add millions in local money to $800K state grant.Yesterday we caught 121 turtles of all species, said Johnston. Probably around 80 of those were Suwannee cooters. That alone is a good thing in the most simplistic sense. He said Wednesday findings were made in the river below the south entrance of Ichetucknee State Park and a private park near Three Rivers Estates. Ichetucknee State Park park biologist Sam Cole worked with the group to help find and tag turtles for the survey. The projects target is largely the health of the dark colored waters of the Santa Fe River. However, to assess issues the river faces Johnston said they must regularly survey the tributaries that feed into and alter the chemical composition of its tea-colored waters. The Suwannee cooter is a turtle that is the very common turtle locally. Tubing or paddling on the Ichetucknee thats the common turtle they see basking, said Johnston. But this is the only place in the world it is a common turtle. Its been threatened by people catching them to eat them. The turtle was only recently removed from the Florida Endangered and Threatened Species list in 2016, according to Floridas Imperiled Species Management Plan. According to the FWC, state law says it is illegal to take, possess, or sell the Suwannee cooter because it is a protected species. The population also faces threats from habitat degradation. Johnston said he still had to conclude his evaluation of their findings from Wednesday. But he said the uptick in Suwannee cooter was likely due to the turtles venturing farther into healthier waters to find plant food sources that they have found to be dwindling in the Santa Fe. Cole said he delivers presentations to the group in addition to helping them in their surveys. Something interesting about this area, in a lot of places around the world youve got very few turtle species. So if youve got areas that have a lot of species thats kind of an amazing thing, said Cole. The Santa Fe system has 13, thats one of the most diverse turtle spots in North America. In Ichetucknee we have 10 of those species. COOTERSContinued From 1A since he took office and pledging to continue the fight on Capitol Hill. I will work hard and I will return calls, Scott told the crowd. Jobs, education and public safety are among voters top priorities, he said. Under his watch as governor, Scott said the state saw major economic growth, helping to address all three of those. If you want less crime, get people to work, he said. Calling Florida the current best business envi ronment in the country, Scott said the prosperity that came during his tenure as governor resulted in a $2.5 billion increase in education funding this fiscal year. Funding for K-12 public schools has increased by $3.2 billion since Scott took office, according to his campaign. Scott, who is compet ing against incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson in the Senate race, said Floridas interests have not been adequately represented in Washington. It seems like they become part of some national club and they forget us, he said. Among the local community leaders present at the event was Columbia County Sheriff Mark Hunter, one of 55 sheriffs in the state who has endorsed Scott for Senate. He has stood by law enforcements side and public safety all-around, Hunter said. Outgoing Lake Citybased state Rep. Elizabeth Porter, a Republican, said the state added 1.3 million jobs since Scott took over, applauding the governor for traveling the world to enlist businesses into relocating to Florida. He is going on to fight the good fight, Porter said. Scott, like Porter, is barred by term limits from seeking re-election. See more photos, 3A. ry students are currently enrolled in the program, she estimated. Happy House has a federal grant that is administered by the school district, Kazmierski said. She said the agreement requires the school district to provide transportation to the program. As far as I know, theyre reneging, Kazmierski said. The district disputes that claim, Carswell said. We dont interpret it that we absolutely have to, he said. Anyone interested in applying for a bus driver position can apply on the school districts website at columbiak12.com. Driving 30 students around at once is a demanding task, Carswell said, but the pay can be upwards of $14 an hour. It takes a special kind of person, he said.

Where did that saying come from? Nomads camping in an oasis? Bedouins? Its a comment on human nature. Were a diverse species: Each of us is capable of both horrible massacres, as well as the kindest, noblest, most heroic and sacrificing acts of love for our fellow man. Who are your neighbors? The home next door? Foreign nations? In high school, I took 3 years of Spanish language classes in 1967. Driven by curiosity and a desire to get to know the Mexican people, I drove deep into Mexico and lived with the people for two weeks. What a pleasant surprise to be welcomed with the friendship and kindness that the Mexican people shared with me! I visited villages, the cities of Mexico City and Guadalajara, and settlers in the mountains where the women did their laundry in a beautiful running mountain stream. In cantinas, they shared Mexicos best beers with me. I enjoyed the local food and events. Many had never seen a blond person before, and considered it good luck, or a blessing, to be able to touch blond hair. I had a wonderful time there. Times are changing in the world. I took my family for a two-week vacation to Yosemite Valley, leaving the doors at home unlocked. When we came home, the front door was open but nothing was missing! A few years later, I owned and managed a delicatessen in Manhattan Beach, California. One day two illegal Mexican immigrants robbed my Pickle Barrel Deli, in broad daylight. They were never caught. These days, we need to lock up our cars, even at home, or when we go shopping. Whats the problem? The world has always had migratory human populations. People everywhere want to find a better life, or to escape tyranny and poverty. Our country was founded by immigrants. Eventually, immigrants wiped out native populations. Were a nation based on freedom and equality of opportunity, and thats a challenge today, as it always has been. How can we approach the issues of immigration compassionately, reasonably, and fairly? Do our laws favor one class over others? Our nation has difficulty adjusting to waves of immigration, and revising laws that deal with human rights and opportunity. What can we do to fix the problem? First of all, adjust our attitudes. Move forward, not out of fear or anger, but out of compassion for our fellow man, and a desire to do the right thing. Werent we brought up to believe love your neighbor, and share with those less fortunate? Do we think of immigrants as them, rather than us? Try to see both sides of issues. Do our laws serve those who claimed the land and the goodies first? What would you do to survive, or to build a better, happier life for your own family? The Pledge of Allegiance promises liberty and justice for all. What are your basic principles? Should we balance free enterprise, and supply and demand with fairness of economic principles? Can we support fair regulation of wages and prices, and consider more help for homeless families and the disadvantaged? John Lennon put it well, I think: Imagine all the people, sharing all the world! Reach out to your town or city council, your county commission, your mayor, and your congressman or senator. Let them know how you feel. Include all in your events and festivities. Were one nation, under God. Attend town meetings. Or call a town meeting yourself! Does your church, school, or club reach out and welcome all? Find a good cause, and volunteer! Yes; control the border not a Berlin wall, but revise our ports of entry, with paths for legal entry and paths to citizenship. Take charge of your country! Make it the best it can be. The United States still has the biggest heart of all. Help everyone have access to, and to build, that happier, better, and fuller life that we all deserve. And thanks for what you do!

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman ANOTHER VIEWNATO gets an earfulPresident Trump knows how to make a point by showing up late for a meeting. He arrived 30 minutes late Thursday at a session of the NATO summit, missed scheduled meetings with two world leaders, and talked to reporters for an unscheduled 35 minutes and then flew off to London for greater opportunities for tardiness. When youre a big enough cheese you can get by with small affronts to protocol, affronts that a little cheese, like the prime minister of Lower Slobbovia, would never attempt. President Trumps dramatic exit at Brussels capped an eventful and perhaps even fruitful NATO summit. NATO conferences are usually staid not to say dull sessions, carefully scripted to avoid making news, but this time the president shook things up. If hes not necessarily a great president, he has established himself as the great entertainer. He repeatedly berated the NATO allies for their meager contributions to the mutual defense. The NATO allies couldnt say they werent warned (or even that they didnt have it coming). Mr. Trump tweeted his intentions before he arrived in the Belgian capital: Getting ready to leave for Europe. First meeting NATO. The U.S. is spending many times more than any other country in order to protect them. Not fair to the U.S. taxpayer. He repeated it several times in Brussels. He observed that every NATO country had promised to devote a minimum of 2 percent of their Gross Domestic Product to their defense. Yet only five of the 29 member nations, the United States, Britain, Greece, Poland, and Estonia, have actually paid up. The United States, on the other hand, contributes more than 3.5 percent of its GDP to defense.) But even with some members that pay up, theres less than meets the eye. Greece, for example, counts pension payments to retired military men as defense spending. Mr. Trump is correct when he points out that the U.S. bears a disproportionate financial burden in protecting everyone. The exceptional nation has been doing it so long that the deadbeats now consider it as just the way it ought to be. He further stepped on the usual protocol when he scolded Frau Merkel in public for her friendly relations with Vladimir Putin ironic because Mr. Trump himself is accused of getting too warm with the Russian don. Frau Merkels excuse is that Germany relies on imported Russian energy to keep itself warm through the long Teutonic winter, and cant risk giving Mr. Putin an excuse to cut off the gas. But guarding against Russian expansionism is, after all, what the alliance is supposed to be all about. The president is only asking why the United States should contribute billions to defend Germany from a nation that it is sending billions of dollars to. Were supposed to be guarding against Russia, and Germany goes out and pays billions and billions of dollars a year to Russia, the president says. A reasonable point. The good news is that on military spending events are trending in the right direction, no doubt due in large part to the presidents rough complaints, which began before he took office. Presidents before Mr. Trump complained privately that NATO has taken advantage of American generosity over the years, but only Donald Trump has been willing to say out loud what other presidents thought. Making a stink gets attention, and nobody does stink better than the Donald. He deserves a round of applause. A standing ovation can wait until the checks clear. Love your neighbor!When it comes to international diplomacy, President Donald Trump is no milquetoast mumbler. He can be undiplomatically blunt, even rude, but that doesnt automatically mean hes wrong. Take, for instance, the longstanding dispute between the United States and its NATO allies over how much everyone contributes to the collective defense of Europe. At the NATO summit in Brussels on Wednesday, Trump scorched the sensibilities of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and German Chancellor Angela Merkel with this zinger: Germany, as far as Im concerned, is captive to Russia because its getting so much of its energy from Russia. The Washington Post described Trumps remarks as among the harshest in the history of the postWorld War II alliance. Pass the smelling salts. Trump also declared: We have to talk about the billions and billions of dollars thats being paid to the country were supposed to be protecting you against, Trump said, referring to European purchases of Russian natural gas. Why would he say that? Because its true, and to Trump (and many other Americans) its galling. Germany, one of the wealthiest countries on Earth, is among more than 20 NATO laggards not yet chipping in 2 percent of gross domestic product for defense as these nations pledged to achieve by 2024. For the past several years, only a handful of NATO members have cleared the 2 percent bar; the U.S. spends about twice that. This year, however, NATO expects eight of its 29 members to reach 2 percent. Great, that only leaves 21 more. Is Trump impatient? Yep. And so was President Barack Obama, and President George W. Bush. Weve often demanded that European countries pony up. NATO is built on the premise that an attack on one member is an attack on every member. That represents an important, and costly, bulwark against security threats, including terrorism and Russian aggression. The Europeans value American security commitments, but apparently not enough to swiftly fork over more cash. Thus, Trumps mission is to shame France, Germany and other European countries into finally contributing their due. Frankly, many countries owe us a tremendous amount of money for many years, back where theyre delinquent, as far as Im concerned, because the United States has had to pay for them, Trump said. Trump calling important allies delinquent? The president does have a way with words. Technically hes incorrect, since theres no money owed to the United States. But the larger point is that the defense of Europe is a shared burden. And candor has its place. Some of NATOs nervous Nellies fear Trump will rupture the alliance by dissing Americas friends and yielding too much to Russian President Vladimir Putin in a summit scheduled for next week. Yet after Trump rattled the contributions cup in Brussels, he joined NATO leaders in approving sweeping plans to boost the alliances defenses against Russia and terrorism.

Just last month he said God was stupid. Which is it? God cannot be stupid and not exist at the same time. And if He does exist, it would be foolish to call Him stupid. If this is an example of atheistic reasoning dont expect to talk me out of my faith. Atheists appeal to reason because they think it displaces faith; they think the two are mutually exclusive. The truth is both exist within everyone. The question is not whether reason supplants faith; the question we should be asking is your faith reasonable, because everyone has a belief system that cannot be proven. It is significant to note that Duterte did not stake his presidency on his ability to prove God does not exist, because he cant. The person who believes God does not exist believes something he cannot prove. An atheist wrote that atheists do not believe in believing, but that is a complete lie. They believe there is no God or an afterlife, but cannot disprove either, all they can say about such things are what they believe, because they have no proof. The atheist does believe in believing. The difference between the Christian and the atheist is the Christian is honest about what he believes. Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen, Hebrews 11:1. Faith is believing in things that cannot be seen. An atheist believes in things that cannot be seen also, he merely attempts to cloak what he believes in reason. Ravi Zacharias has said, God has provided enough evidence to make it reasonable to believe Him; yet has left enough out that we cannot come to Him by reason alone; we must come by faith. There is enough observable design in the natural realm to deduce an intelligent designer, but He has designed things in such a way that it still requires faith, a trust in His word, to know Him. And if one is unwilling to even admit He exists, how can that one expect to know Him. The fact that God exists is innate. Paul speaking of unbelievers declares, that which is known about God is evident within them, Romans 1:19. Atheism is not so much a denial of Gods existence as it is an expression of their frustration that God does not act in a way The Day of the Lord is nearAs we have celebrated the birth of our country this week with fireworks and family cookouts we need to pause and remember that the only reason why we exist as a nation is because the Lord saw fit to let us win the Revolutionary War when we revolted against England. We must remember that England had a government run Church that you had to believe what they told you to believe. The people who didnt believe the way the Church of England wanted them to suffered persecution. Religious persecution was the main reason why people came to this country so that they could worship the Lord the way they wanted to. In our Constitution we have purposefully written in such a way that the government cannot tell people how they are to worship God Almighty. We must remember that the Church-that is those who are born again in Jesus Christ are to have an influence on the way our government makes decisions because one day in the near future we as a nation will give an account to the Lord. A reasonable faithCHRISTIAN CONCEPTS Gary Kinggarybkingcc@gmail.comThe person who believes God does not exist believes something he cannot prove.Three years ago. I had a conversation recently with someone who shared with me the last time she could actually remember feeling content was three years ago. Our conversation took another direction, but later I couldnt help but wonder what was going on in her life during that time to cause it to stand out as a time of contentment. I have continued to roll this around in my mind and so I want to ask you: When is the last time you remember feeling content, a contentment that was tangible enough to make you say or at least think, I am really okay with life right now. My next question is this: what were the circumstances that surrounded your state of contentment? Was everything going well for that season? Bills all paid, kids all healthy, and no major catastrophes? Maybe you were even on vacation, sitting at the beach with a whole week ahead of you and thinking, Ah, now this is life. If I could just stay here, I would be content! If Im honest, this has been my experience, and Im willing to bet yours as well. However, the Bible offers a fresh perspective on the reality of true contentment. In Philippians 4:11-12, the Apostle Paul becomes our mentor in this lesson: for I have learned to be content, whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well-fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. If you investigate the context of this verse, the first thing that we realize is that Pauls contentment was not dependent on circumstances, at least not external ones. He was sitting in prison as he penned these words! As we scratch our heads over this detail, lets look at the definition of contentment for a little insight. Websters dictionary says that content is an adjective meaning to appease the desires of; to limit oneself in requirements, desires and actions. This definition opposes our assumption that contentment is only possible if everything is going well. It also stands in contrast to a passive stance of just deciding that nothing is worth opposing. Even a quick glimpse into Pauls life will tell us that was not his mentality! This definition gives us a vital approach to fleshing out life as a Christian. In our determination to live within the will of God, we are called to limit ourselves, especially our desires and actions, to those things that are pleasing to God. (Desiring something is not a sign that it is OK with How should we guide our actions?In our determination to live within the will of God, we are called to limit ourselves, especially our desires and actions, to those things that are pleasing to God.

They would serve God if they could do so in an advisory capacity, but they refuse to yield to a God they believe is stupid and fail to consider their judgment is imperfect or impaired. C. S. Lewis said, I believe in Christianity as I believe the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. That statement for one who believes has the ring of reason. KINGContinued From 5AGod. We need to consult His Word to see what He has to say!) Proverbs 3:5-6 explains: Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Obedience to God will result in contentment, no matter the circumstances. Paul had this figured out, but notice that two times he mentions learning how to be content. Biblical contentment is not natural. In fact, left unchecked, our sin nature reeks of discontentment. Understand that limiting ourselves to Gods plan for our lives will not always be easy, but it will be worth it. And we can learn to be content with that, because our hearts really do matter.

Contact AA ngie with questions or comments at landangie4@ gmail.comWe as a nation need to read the book of Obadiah in the Bible. For the day of the LORD is near upon all the nations. As you have done, it shall be done to you; your deeds shall return on your own head. Obadiah 1:15 (ESV) The Lords message to Edom is a reminder to us all that in the near future that even our nation will face the judgment by the Lord. In this minor prophet the Lord reveals Edoms sin. The pride of your heart has deceived you, you who live in the clefts of the rock, in your lofty dwelling, who say in your heart, Who will bring me down to the ground? (vs3) If we are not careful as a nation we could face the same judgment. This is not a Republican or a Democrat party problem. This sin begins with individuals and the individuals form groups and eventually the whole nation is involved in sin. The Lord reveals Edoms violence that it committed against Israel when Babylon came and destroyed them. If we are not careful the violent acts that we have committed will come back on us. Our nations sin is such that we have taken the living God out of everything. We have taken the Bible and prayer out of School. Here is what the Bible says will happen when people do not know Gods word. Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint, but blessed is he who keeps the law. Proverbs 29:18 (ESV) Without reading and hearing Gods word people will do exactly what the verse says it will do. What people do not realize, what nations do not realize is this: whether they have read the Bible or not they will have to stand and give an account of their lives according to it. We are not a perfect nation, no nation is, but what we can do is listen and apply Gods word to our lives so that we are obedient to Jesus Christ.

October 6, 2018. Youre not going to want to miss this. Florida faces LSU that day but dont expect this Gators squad to steal the show. Thats reserved for Tim Tebow, who will be inducted into UFs Ring of Honor during the game. The Gators havent given us many memorable moments as of late. Everybody remembers last seasons dreadful 4-7 record, but do you remember their last SEC title? 2008. I had to look it up. Its no coincidence that the school is also honoring the 10-year anniversary of that team on the same day Tebows name into the Ring of Honor. Being a Gators fan hasnt been great as of late. The future may seem bright with Dan Mullen now running the show, and that could very well be true, but will anything be truly different this season? Im not so sure. What I am sure of is this October 6 is going to be one special day, whether the Gators win or lose. Whether you were a student during Tebows run or a longtime alumnus, you want to be at this game.

Tristyn Sutherland and Madison Morrison received the honor after posting high grades in classroom. Morrison ended the year with a 3.93 GPA while Sutherland posted a 3.42. Im extremely proud of Tristyn and Madison and their placement on the All-Academic Team, FGC coach Richie Tang said. I have always stressed to our program they need to be true student-athletes and they certainly are the epitome of it Its certainly a difficult thing to juggle the demands of academics while being a top-notch volleyball player. Sutherland, who recently graduated from FGC, played libero while Morrison played at the WIMBLEDONSerena nears 8th title, 24th Slam overallBy HOWARD FENDRICHAssociated PressLONDON Yes, this will be Serena Williams 10th Wimbledon final. Yes, its her 30th title match at any major. And, well, sure, shes widely regarded as not just the best of her era, but any era. Let others shrug at this latest accomplishment, as if all it signified were merely another chance at another in a long line of trophies. Williams is not shy about saying she, for one, is impressed by this. Rightly so. For it was only about 10 months ago she was having a baby and then dealing with a serious health scare that followed. Even after all of that, even after more than a year away from the game, even in only the fourth tournament of her comeback, Williams showed shes still capable of dominance. Especially at the All England Club, where a relatively routine 6-2, 6-4 victory over 13th-seeded Julia Goerges of Germany on Thursday put Williams one win away from an eighth championship. Shes also closing in on her 24th Grand Slam title, which would equal Margaret Courts alltime record. A lot of people were saying, Oh, she should be in the final, the 36-year-old Williams said. For me its such a pleasure and a joy because, you know, less than a year ago, I was going through so much stuff. After hitting five aces with a serve that reached 119 mph, delivering 16 winners to only seven unforced errors, and covering the court so well with speed and effort, Williams will face another German, 11th-seeded Angelique Kerber, on Saturday. Whatever happens, honestly, Williams said, its an incredible effort from me. The left-handed Kerber, WilliamsWilliams defeats Goerges to advance to Wimbledon final. SERENA continued on 6BBy SAL CACCIATORENewsdayTRENTON, N.J. The 6,000-seat Arm & Hammer Park pales in comparison to the 90,000-seat behemoths of Southeastern Conference football, and the stakes in Wednesday nights Eastern League All-Star Game were nothing compared to the NFL playoffs. Tim Tebow was there anyway for the latest chapter in a wild career that included a Heisman Trophy, two national championships and a roller-coaster stint in the NFL before he turned to baseball and signed with the Mets in 2016. It was a great honor and something I really appreciated, Tebow said of his All-Star selection. He batted ninth as the Eastern Divisions designated hitter and doubled his first time up. Although he has not dominated Double-A baseball the way he did as an SEC quarterback, he generally has held his own for the Binghamton Rumble Ponies. He is hitting .270 with a .337 on-base percentage, .390 slugging percentage and five home runs in 76 games in his second sea-Former Gator isnt concerned about joining the Mets.

DEAR ABBY: Im 20 years old and have a job in retail. I have been working here for a few years and am in a higher position than most associates. Im in a relationship with my high school sweetheart, whom I truly love, but I am also crazy about my boss. Shes beautiful, funny, and to be honest, I jumped at my promotion so I could get closer to her. I feel terrible because, while I love my girlfriend (shes amazing), if I were given the chance to be with my boss, Id have a hard time saying no. Thankfully, my boss is in a long-term marriage, so I know in my head I have no chance, but it hurts to go on every day thinking about her. Id hate myself if I never told her how I feel about her. What should I do? -REALLY CONFUSED IN RETAIL DEAR REALLY CONFUSED: Because you are excelling in this retail job, consider asking your beautiful, funny, married boss to write a positive letter of recommendation for you so you can find another job in retail -one that wont make you ache every time you clock in. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been asked to be in his sisters wedding. We said yes, mostly out of obligation. There will be three married couples in the procession. I recently learned that my sister-in-law plans to have the couples split up and walk with others. I think its extremely weird and rude, so much so that we want to back out. Neither of us cares to be in a memory book with us posing with other people. Its not that either of us is jealous; we have been married for 24 years. What do you think? -FEELING OBLIGATED IN THE EAST DEAR FEELING OBLIGATED: I think that before you take offense and back out, you should ask your sister-inlaw why she wants to do this. It could be something as simple as variations in the height of the participants and not weird or rude. Between you and me, unless you and your husband feel so strongly about this that you are willing to create a rift in the family, you should go along with his sisters fantasy of her perfect day. DEAR ABBY: I cant do anything for my 70-something-year-old mom without her thanking me so much it makes me uncomfortable. A recent example: She moved to a new apartment, and I bought her some gift certificates as a housewarming gift. She thanked me profusely via email when she received them. She thanked me again over the phone when I next spoke with her. Shes thanked me at least half a dozen more times -each time she uses one of them. When my sister and I paid for a trip for her, she bought us expensive gifts as thank-yous. The gifts cost far more than she could afford (and unfortunately, in my case, was something Id never use), which kind of negated the idea of us paying for the trip. I know Mom means well. Should I say or do anything, or just let it be? -THANKS-FULL SON IN SEATTLE DEAR SON: If you say something, you risk embarrassing your mother or, worse, hurting her feelings. I vote for just letting it be. DEAR ABBY: I am a 20-year-old college student. After attending a local community college for two years, I will be starting classes at a fouryear school. I make excellent grades, but I struggle with organization. My mother has ADD, and I am certain that I also have it because I display all the symptoms. However, I have never been diagnosed. My mother purposely didnt have me diagnosed as a child because she didnt want me to feel like there was anything holding me back. Now that Im an adult, I keep wondering if getting a diagnosis along with some mental and emotional support might help me to become more organized and successful in life. Any advice would be appreciated, along with any resources you might know of for people who have ADD or ADHD. -ANONYMOUS IN THE SOUTH DEAR ANONYMOUS: Because you feel that receiving a diagnosis would be helpful, its time to be evaluated by a mental health professional. If your college has a student health center, thats the place to start. If not, contact the psychological association in your state about a referral to a therapist who specializes in patients with adult attention deficit disorder. I wish you luck, because there is help for it. DEAR ABBY: When my wife shops for clothes, she often returns something for exchange or reimbursement. Recently she bought an article of clothing and it shrank after she washed it, so she returned it. To me that was inappropriate. I think after a garment is washed it belongs to the buyer, and a return is wrong. Or am I wrong? -RETURNED IN THE EAST DEAR RETURNED: Personally, I agree with you -unless the item was supposed to be shrink-resistant. However, because the retailer was willing to exchange it or reimburse your wife, it appears we are mistaken. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Dont slow down when you should be speeding up. Let others do as they please; it will give you the freedom to do things your way. Refuse to let personal problems sidetrack you. Strength and courage will encourage positive change. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Concentrate on what you are trying to achieve, and dont stop until you reach your destination. There is plenty to gain if you are willing to do less talking and more physical action. If you want something done right, do it yourself. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Search for an opportunity to put your knowledge to good use. Actively look for a position that requires your attributes, and talk your way into the position. Use similar tactics when you want something to change in your personal life as well. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Express your feelings and find out where you stand. Its important to know what you are up against as well as how you can take advantage of an opportunity. Use past examples to make your point clear. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Someone will try your patience. Chill and make a point to do your own thing. Avoid extravagance and individuals trying to push you to get involved in something that is likely to lead to a financial or emotional loss. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A short trip or meeting with someone you respect will offer you greater insight into how best to handle your personal relationships. A makeover or trendy new look will encourage you to socialize. Romance is encouraged. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Participation will help you attract the attention you are trying to direct to a project you believe in. Speak up and promote what you feel can make a difference. Dont adhere to someone who wants to blow the budget on unnecessary action. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Dont make a hasty decision or move -no matter what someone else tries to tell you to speed up a deal or situation. You are better off using restraint until you have sufficient information to satisfy any uncertainty or doubt you have. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Count your money and evaluate your assets. Dont feel the need to give in to someone offering a sob story. Put your possessions somewhere safe. Once secure, relax and have some well-deserved fun with people who share similarities with you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Loosen up and enjoy the fruits of your labor. You deserve a break and a chance to spend quality time with the people you care about most. Personal improvements will raise your confidence and lift your spirits. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Express your feelings and make it clear where you stand on controversial topics that can affect your personal relationship with someone. Its OK to disagree as long as you give others the same privilege. Collaboration and compro mise will bring good results. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Look into unusual investments and out-of-the-ordinary opportunities. Share your thoughts and intentions and see what transpires. A physical change will give you the look of success. Show your individuality and wear your new look with pride.

FGC Continued From 1BFILEFlorida Gateway College middle blocker Madison Morrison leaps up to block a shot in a match last season. Shell be a sophomore this upcoming season. in the national championship later that year? There was his Heisman trophy season as a sophomore to take the sting out of a 9-4 year. And the fact that Florida State could never touch him in his four years in Gainesville. Oh, and I know you remember the promise, his heartfelt speech following Floridas 31-30 loss to Ole Miss in 2008. The game appeared to dash the fans hopes of   another national championship. T ebow quickly restored it with a few words I just want to say one thing. To the fans and everybody in Gator Nation, Im sorry, extremely sorry. I promise you one thing, a lot of good will come out of this. You will never see any player in the entire country play as hard as I will play the rest of the season, and you will never see someone push the rest of the team as hard as I will push everybody the rest of the season, and you will never see a team play harder that we will the rest of the season. God bless. You believed him, and he delivered. Three months later, Florida defeated Oklahoma 24-14 for the national title. Tebow gave Gators fans some of, if not their greatest memories in the history of the program. This years team may not provide many, but one day this season gives you a chance to relive some of the best. At least, for one day, youll remember what you love most about Gator Nation. And who knows, maybe Florida will get some revenge on LSU as well. After all, Tebow will be in the building.

Seeing her back, its great, said Kerber, who has lost six of eight previous matches against Williams. I know that she is always pushing you to the limits. Kerber let 2017 French Open champion Ostapenko determine the outcome of nearly every point. By the end, Ostapenko had far more winners, 30-10, and far more unforced errors, 36-7. Williams vs. Kerber will be a rematch of the 2016 final. Williams won that for a second consecutive Wimbledon title, then sat out the grass-court tournament last year while pregnant, part of a 16-month gap between majors. The victory over Goerges extended Williams winning streak at Wimbledon to 20 matches, dating to the start of the 2015 edition. son in pro baseball. Tebow, 30, was last on an NFL roster during the 2015 preseason, and said the transition from football to baseball has required major changes in how he trains. I think even last year, being my first year in baseball, I still didnt know how my body was adjusting to playing every day for 150 games in a row, versus trying to get ready for 16 Sundays, he said. This year, I think I prepared a lot better and my body has adjusted and been a little more steady throughout. Tebow did not play baseball at the University of Florida, so his stint in the Arizona Fall League in 2016 was his first foray into organized baseball since his junior season at Nease High School near Jacksonville in 2005. He spent the 2017 season in Class A and High A, hitting a combined .226 with a .309 on-base percentage and eight home runs. The results have been better this season despite the higher level of competition, but Tebow said he remains focused on improving, rather than thinking about a potential late-season call-up to the majors. I cant worry about any of that, he said of the possibility of being the first player to appear in both the MLB and NFL regular season since Drew Henson (Yankees, 2002 and 2003, and the Cowboys and Lions, 2004 and 2008, respectively). I know as a baseball player I have a lot of room to grow and I think Im getting better every day and every series. I know Im not even close to where I want to be.
