From staff reportsA Tennessee businessman will buy up to 4,363,640 shares of Columbia Banks outstanding common stock, according to a Friday news release. P. Byron DeFoor of Ooltewah, Tennessee, is a strategic investor with more than 30 years experience in commercial real estate and residential development, the release said. He also has majority ownership in two other community banks. I have enjoyed getting to know and working with the board of directors and the banks leadership team these past few months, DeFoor said in the release. I believe this bank, along with our other community banks, has a great opportunity to grow and thrive and continue to be a key asset to their communities. Board member Ron Foreman said Saturday that little will change at the bank after the transaction, and that all personnel will remain in place. We made it a condition of the sale that the management team and staff all stay, Foreman said. He said the banks business philosophy wont change, either. We will remain a communi ty bank, Foreman said, with our focus and primary concern unchanged. Board member Gordon Summers said that current board members will also remain and that the name of the bank would not change as far as he knew. The release said DeFoor will add two additional board members. David Bridgeman, the banks president and CEO, called the move a new chapter in our history but an extremely positive one. This transaction is great for Columbia Bank, our employees and our customers, he said in the release.

Judge Mark Feagle was originally set to oversee the case, which raises the question as to whether Tucker has lived in District 10 long enough to satisfy residency requirements or even lives there at all. But Feagle also serves as an alternate judge on the Columbia County Canvassing Board, prohibiting him from presiding over such a case, according to a July 11 recusal letter. Judge Andrew Decker was assigned to the case by an administrative memorandum. A petition filed in the Third Judicial Circuit last week asks the court an injunction striking Tucker from the ballot. The challenge comes from former District 10 candidate Glenel Bowden, who withdrew from the race to support Tuckers other opponent, Vanessa George. The city charter requires City Council candidates to live in their respective districts for at least one year before qualifying. In his candidacy paperwork, Tucker listed his address as 923 NE Coldwater Ave., swearing under penalty of perjury that the information was accurate.By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comA Live Oak man faces a sexual assault charge after Lake City officers say he raped a girl between the ages of 12 and 17. When an officer responded to a sexual battery on July 10, the victim said Jimmy Eugene Martinez, 49, had raped her, according to a Lake City Police Department report. The address was redacted. Martinez started approaching the officer and victim from the east side of his home. The victim identified him as the culprit. The officer placed Martinez under arrest and transported him to LCPD headquarters for questioning. During the interrogation, Martinez admitted to having sex with a known seventeen-year-old female, according to the report. The next portion of the report was redacted, making the context of Martinezs confession unclear.

Thanks for reading.But Bowden has accused Tucker of falsifying his address, saying its common knowledge he lives with his mother at 1356 NE Washington St. Its too late to strike Tuckers name from the physical ballots, which have already been printed. But if Tucker is found ineligible, the Columbia County Supervisor of Elections would post signs at the polls stating votes for him will not count. Tucker himself has said on multiple occasions he only stays at the Coldwater Avenue home one or two nights a week, spending most nights taking care of his 86-year-old mother at her house. The owner of the Coldwater Avenue property, Caroline D. McCray of Colorado, told the Lake City Reporter in June that Tucker isnt on the lease and has no right to live there. One of the two official tenants, Willie James Bradley, said in late June that Tucker never lived there contrary to the claim he made a day prior, which he said was a lie to protect Tucker, his friend. Tucker said in June he planned to withdraw from the race amid the controversy, but has yet to do so. Before taking the matter to the Third Circuit, Bowden asked the city clerks office if it could step in. But the citys role is only ministerial, according to a memo from City Attorney Fred Koberlien. The clerks office must administer the qualification paperwork, but cannot make judgements as to whether a document is accurate. Tucker claims he moved to the Coldwater Avenue address in February 2017. In late June, Bradley said Tucker had been living there off and on for about eight months. The next day, Bradley said Tucker never lived there. Tucker says McCray pressured Bradley into claiming he didnt live there. Tucker maintains he rents a room at Bradleys house for $400 every couple of weeks. In June, McCray said she had visited the property eight months prior and saw no traces of Tucker. State law defines a permanent residence at somewhere that a person has his or her true, fixed and permanent home and principal establishment to which, whenever absent, he or she has the intention of returning. HEARINGContinued From 1A Child, 9, steals, wrecks truckSUWANNEE COUNTY COURTESY PHOTOSGave pursuing officer vulgar replyBy CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comThe driver of a stolen truck led Live Oak Police Department officers on a chase involving multiple vehicle collisions and plenty of property damage on Thursday and the suspect is still young enough to be in the target demographic for Spongebob Squarepants. On Thursday, LOPD officers responded to a missing-child call when a second call came in about a hit-andrun crash at Church Street near Howard Avenue, according to a news release. A be-on-the-lookout alert went out for a silver Chevrolet pickup truck with crash damage. An officer saw the truck near U.S. Highway 129 and U.S. Highway 90 and noticed it operating in a predictably dangerous manner, according to the statement. The truck struck a second vehicle in the southbound lane of U.S. 129, which then hit a third vehicle in the northbound parking lane, according to the statement. The truck continued northbound on U.S. 129, swerving in and out of lanes at a slow speed. The officer pulled alongside the vehicle and saw a child at the steering wheel. There were no other occupants. After commanding the child to pull over, the officer was answered with a vulgar reply. As the truck approached the intersection of U.S. 129 and 70th Road, it struck a fourth vehicle, which then struck another. The fugitive truck veered off into a traffic-light pole. Finally, the chase had ended. The 9-year-old was taken to an emergency room. Investigators later found out the truck was stolen from behind Live Oak Tire & Auto near U.S. 90. More crash damage was found on the property of Cheek & Scott Drugs and Suwannee Primary School. The child faces charges of grand theft auto and aggravated fleeing and eluding.

When I read in this newspaper two weeks ago that pro wrestling matches were returning to Lake City, I was reminded of the night around 1950 when the villainous, masked Mr. X wrestled good guy Roland Kirchmeyer, 6 7 tall, 255 pounds, and his sleeper hold, the Octopus Clutch. These matches were held in the old National Guard Armory and there was a packed house to see the matches. I was there with my best buds, Gene Cox, Billy Cox, Charley Phillips, Caesar Thomas, and Chuck. Remember I mentioned Chuck. Hell show up later in the story. Well, the three preliminaries featured some exciting wrestling moves like the elbow smash, the python clutch, a backbreaker drop, body slams, a reverse drop kick, and lots of others. The crowd loved it and cheered wildly. And all the wrestlers had tough-guy nicknames: Bad Boy Brown, Black Jack Bart, Strangler Sam, Bruiser Dingo, Harry The Headbuster, and others not so tame. Then came the fourth and next to last match matching two women; one was a really villainous type, a swarthy woman (Bad Girl: BG). against a really pretty, younger and smaller woman (Good Girl: GG). The match started with the two women circling each other going back and forth with harmless punches, when suddenly Bad Girl made a quick move and over powered Good Girl and began beating her something terrible. Remember Chuck? Well we began to notice he was getting edgy over GG getting beat up, then he abruptly just blurted out, Im gonna help that girl. Then he jumped off the bleachers and headed for the ringand jumped inside the ring. He roughly pulled BG off GG, then with cat-like quickness BG picked Chuck up high into the air and threw him completely across the ring. Stunned but still game, Chuck rushed back toward BG and she promptly neck-locked him into the ring ropes so tight he could hardly move. Soon Chuck, a pretty tough guy himself, got loose and it became Chuck and GG against BG. With chaos in the ring, local promoter Mort jumped in to try to restore order but BG started pummeling him. Well Morts wife wasnt going to let anyone hurt her husband so she jumped into the ring, armed with an empty Coke bottle, aiming to put an end to all the confusion. It didnt work. BGs husband, a big wrestler himself, couldnt let his wife get bludgeoned with a Coke bottle so he jumped into the ring himself. Soon there were maybe 20 people in the ring with about 10 fights going on. The crowd roared for more but finally the Lake City police officers got into the ring and in about 20 minutes got things settled. Chuck finally got back to his seat, panting and out of breath and with a few knots on his head. So many people patted him on the back he felt like a hero. And what of the featured match between Mr. X and Mr. Octopus Clutch? It was a thriller from start to finish. But thats a story for another day.

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, ChairmanLETTERS TO THE EDITOR OUR OPINIONThe mayors futureMayor Stephen M. Witt embarrassed himself, along with our town, when in January 2017 he climbed into his SUV in a stupor, cranked the ignition and then got out again, forgetting he had already put the vehicle in gear. The unmanned machine lurched into Lake DeSoto. He pleaded no contest to DUI and agreed to a years probation and loss of his license for six months (though it was soon reinstated for purposes of work). But there was more to come. Court papers made public last month show Witt admitted to driving drunk on at least 50 occasions prior to January 27, 2017, and said he had tried to quit drinking at least 20 times. Further, he denied having a drinking problem and said his schedule did not permit substance abuse counseling or alcohol monitoring. That was the breaking point for many. A man who would willfully, and routinely, endanger the lives of others rather than accept help has gone too far. Consider this his one and only wake-up call. Witt is an accomplished attorney and a decent man who has served Lake City well. Despite his mistakes, he is worth saving. But now that the problem is out in the open, he must face it and fix it. First he must hold a press conference to address his behavior, something he has yet to do in the 18 months since his DUI. Lake City is a kind and caring town. If asked, the people here will forgive him his missteps. But he must ask, and mean it. Witt must also follow through and take seriously the court-ordered help he has received in the wake of his DUI. He must never again imagine that he can beat this affliction on his own, and must remain in a treatment program for as long as he holds public office. Finally, he must surrender his drivers license for the remaining two years of his term of office. This one is simple. Do not drive. The only way to be sure our mayor is not drunk behind the wheel, is to be sure he doesnt get behind the wheel. What he does once hes out of office is between him and the police. The term mayor is largely symbolic in Lake City. Witt is in essence an at-large city councilman who chairs council meetings, officiates at ribbon cuttings and delivers proclamations. All those things still matter to those of us who live here. It is part and parcel of small-town life. But for mayor to continue to mean anything to anybody, somethings got to give. The terms outlined above are more than reasonable for a man who has so abused the public trust. If the mayor cannot publicly ask forgiveness for his mistakes, get the help he needs, and agree not to get behind the wheel while in office, he should resign. Otherwise, no one will really think of him as mayor anymore anyway. Mr. X vs. the Octopus ClutchTo the Editor: In response to the article in Fridays paper How will daycare kids get home?, the Board of Directors of Happy House would like to submit the following response. The article stated that to free up resources, the district has stopped transportation to an after-school program at the Happy House Daycare. The misnomer is that these are not simply children attending the center for day care purposes. Rather, we are referencing Kindergarten-5th grade afterschool students who are enrolled in the 21st Century grant that is administered by the Columbia County School District. The 21st Century grant is a 5-year federal grant awarded to Happy House to provide the students in the Columbia County School District with tutoring by certified school district personnel, homework assistance and STEM / STEAM enrichment activities. The grant is in its fifth and final year. Seventy-five after-school students ride the bus each day to Happy House and there are a total of 120 students enrolled in the 21st Century program. The grant has a 5-year budgeted plan for transportation from the eight elementary school sites to Happy House. In other words the money is there to provide the transportation but according to the District admin, there isnt enough personnel to drive the buses. The lack of transportation is farther reaching than just Happy House. There are approximately 300 children impacted by this decision since both the Boys and Girls Clubs transportation will also be eliminated. Yes, Happy House is expressing our concern. However, we are far from lashing out at the District, (as your article referenced). The School District is our community partner and has been for many years. We sympathize with their efforts to retain bus drivers and recognize that they are trying to use their resources in creative ways. As a board, we are working diligently to come up with a way to still serve the approximately 300 students. Our main concern remains that students have a safe and enriching environment after school, as well as when schools are closed. Columbia County is well known for our strong community base that has always put children at a high priority. We are confident that we will find a solution within the next four weeks the ensures our community remains united and our children remain our focus.

TODAY IN HISTORYOn this date: In 1799, French soldiers in Egypt discovered the Rosetta Stone, which proved instrumental in deciphering ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs. In 1916, Boeing Co., originally known as Pacific Aero Products Co., was founded in Seattle. In 1932, President Herbert Hoover announced he was slashing his own salary by 20 percent, from $75,000 to $60,000 a year; he also cut Cabinet members salaries by 15 percent, from $15,000 to $12,750 a year. In 1948, President Harry S. Truman was nominated for another term of office by the Democratic national convention in Philadelphia. In 1954, a prototype of the Boeing 707, the model 367-80, made its maiden flight from Renton Field south of Seattle. In 1964, Sen. Barry M. Goldwater of Arizona was nominated for president by the Republican national convention in San Francisco. In 1971, President Richard Nixon delivered a televised address in which he announced that he had accepted an invitation to visit the Peoples Republic of China. In 1976, a 36-hour kidnap ordeal began for 26 schoolchildren and their bus driver as they were abducted near Chowchilla, California, by three gunmen and imprisoned in an underground cell.

Sensors save 6 million gallons a dayFrom staff reportsWater is being saved by the millions of gallons across the Suwannee Valley, thanks to a partnership program with the Suwannee River Water Management District and area farmers. The program helps farmers to implement water-saving devices known as soil moisture sensors throughout their farming operations by sharing the cost of the technology, known as cost share. Part of managing our water resources is working with our water users to identify innovative practices to efficiently use water without negatively impacting their businesses said Hugh Thomas, executive director for the district. This project is a win-win, all the way around. Most farmers are able to reduce their amount of groundwater pumping by using these water management tools. Across the district, the sensors, or probes, are saving an average of 6,000,000 gallons of water per day. That equates to a savings of 151,000 gallons per acre over a growing season for crops like watermelons, peanuts, and corn. The sensors save water by helping farmers to adjust their irrigation schedules based on real time data. The devices send out very small electrical pulses and calculate the time it takes for the pulses to return to the probe to determine the amount of water in the soil. The pulses are emitted at various depths which allows farmers to know how the water is being taken up by a crops root zone. If water flows past the root zone and is not used, the farmer can tailor his or her irrigation schedule to use less water and take full advantage of rainfall. Water resource stakeholders across the region are highly supportive of the use of soil moisture probes and the districts program. University of Florida researchers are studying the effectiveness of the sensors on a variety of crops and crop rotations common to farmers throughout the Suwannee Valley. Soil moisture sensors are one of the best tools we have to aid our farmers and provide quick, easy management information. Not only do they provide soil moisture information but they can also show if a plant is stressed or possibly diseased, said Charles Barrett, water resources specialized agent with the University of Florida, North Florida Research and Education Center, Suwannee Valley. Its like having your own personal record keeper on call, 24-7. Farmers in the Suwannee Valley are leading the way across Florida in this specific type of water conservation practice and the technology is expected to continue to grow. Since January 2017, the District has helped fund 228 sensors throughout the 15-county District area, covering 14,500 irrigated acres. Â The program allows far mers to purchase the sensors at a significantly reduced cost to get the technology into their hands faster. Prior to 2017, the Florida Department of Agricultural and Consumer Services provided grant funding for the sensors from 2015-2017. We expect to see a steady climb in the use of soil moisture sensors in the District over the next several years as the technology continues to improve, usability increases and cost continues to decrease, said Justin Garland, an engineer with the District. In addition to water savings, the sensors also protect water quality by reducing the leaching of fertilizer through the crops root zone. Â When far mers know how much water is available in the crops root zone they can plan to have more water storage capacity in their fields to better protect against a leaching rain event. By managing the amount of water applied to crops, farmers can hold nutrients in the root zone longer which allows the plant a longer time to utilize the nutrients. This reduces the amount of fertilizer leached and supports the farmers bottom line, said Garland. In areas of the District where targeted water quality efforts are ongoing, known as Basin Management Action Plan areas, the District will fund 90 percent of the cost of each probe. Elsewhere, the District funds 75 percent of the cost. The probes cost an average of $2,000 each and include a yearly service fee to support the technology. The District helps to offset the annual service cost as well. Currently, there is no better technology on the market for managing irrigation and water conservation than the soil moisture sensors, said Thomas. Our goal is get at least one sensor on every farm in the Suwannee Valley within the next few years; and with our cost-share program there is no reason for a farmer with irrigation not to participate. Older versions of irrigation management tools used tensiometers which were not very dependable in the sandy soil across the Suwannee Valley. The newer probes were introduced about four years ago and are significantly more reliable. Registration for the soil moisture sensor program at the District is on-going. If you would like more information, contact the Districts Ag Team at (386) 362-1001 or visit www.mysuwanneeriver.com.

Once installed, only the head of the probe is exposed. Information is transmitted through cellular signals to the farmer. Electronic pulses show when water is being taken up by a crops root zone.

YOUTH FOOTBALL CAMPKerb your enthusiasmWIMBLEDONGiving back homeWhen Laremy Tunsil was growing up in Lake City, there were no camps to attend. No one giving back in the community. So when Tunsil finally achieved his goal of making the NFL, he set another goal to give back to his hometown. Tunsil, who starts at left tackle for the Miami Dolphins, started a youth camp in Lake City last summer and saw it grow in numbers this weekend. The two-day free camp saw a total of about 250 kids gather at Memorial Stadium, up from about 120 last year. Campers met with Tunsil, took pictures, received autographs and participated in numerous drills. My biggest thing is I always want to give back, no matter what I do, Tunsil The winner of World Cup will be decided today, which stinks because it helped us sports fans temporarily escape boredom during this slow summer cycle. But dont worry we should be able to avoid fading back into an oblivion. Auto racing? Blah. Mid-season baseball? Who cares.

Truexs No. 78 Toyota Camry appeared even more dominant than last July as he led five times for 174 of 267 laps and swept the first two stages from the pole. The defending Cup champion was always in contention in the 400-mile race, even while trailing. He proved it at key moments late, overtaking Keselowski on lap 201 and Busch 23 laps later to become Kentuckys first back-to-back winner, earning his fourth victory this season and 19th of his career. Ryan Blaney and Keselowski were next in Fords, followed by Kyle Busch (Toyota) and Kevin Harvick (Ford).

By HOWARD FENDRICHAssociated PressLONDON Angelique Kerber was not about to be overwhelmed by the setting or the stakes in this Wimbledon final. She knew exactly what to expect and what to do against Serena Williams. Two years after losing to Williams with a title on the line at Centre Court, Kerber came through. So steady, so patient, so accurate throughout, she never really gave Williams much of a chance this time, putting together a 6-3, 6-3 victory Saturday for her first championship at the All England Club and third major overall. I think its the experience. You have to go through all the things the good things, the bad things and then you need to learn, said Kerber, the first German to win Wimbledon since Steffi Graf in 1996. I know that against Serena, I have to play my best tennis, especially in the important moments, said Kerber, who won the Australian Open and U.S. Open in 2016, but was the runner-up to Williams at Wimbledon that season, especially in the important moments. Thats just what she did. Angelique played really well, Williams said. She played out of her mind. Kerber made only five unforced errors the entire match, 19 fewer than Williams. Perhaps more impressive was this: She broke Williams in 4 of 9 service games. In doing so, Kerber prevented Williams from claiming an eighth title at Wimbledon and 24th from all Grand Slam tournaments which would have equaled Margaret Courts record. As things stand, Williams holds the mark Kerber tops Williams for her 3rd Grand Slam title.KERBER continued on 2B B2

C.J. Cron hit a two-run homer and Jesus Sucre, who entered in the sixth for injured catcher Wilson Ramos, drove in two runs for Tampa Bay. The Rays posted season-highs in runs and hits (20) after entering the game 2-34 this season when trailing after six innings.

Eddie Rosario had three hits and two RBIs, but the Twins fell for the second time in nine games on their current homestand. Matt Duffy, Mallex Smith and Adeiny Hechavarria all had three hits for the Rays. Duffy later left the game after twisting his ankle on a swing in the eighth. Archer threw 93 pitches in his second start off the disabled list after missing a month with a left abdominal strain. He gave up two runs and five hits in 4 1/3 innings with seven strikeouts. Tampa Bay catcher Wilson Ramos is likely to miss next weeks All-Star game after leaving Saturdays game against the Minnesota Twins with left hamstring tightness.

The NL East-leading Phillies have scored only 24 runs in their past nine games. Nola (12-3) needed 31 pitches to get through the first. After he loaded the bases with none out, one run scored on a groundout, and another came home on Martin Prados two-out single. In that one inning, Nola surrendered as many runs as he had given up in his previous three starts combined. The right-hander allowed only two baserunners after the first, one on a bizarre two-base error by third base man Maikel Franco. By allowing two runs in six innings, Nola hiked his ERA to 2.30. Trevor Richards (3-5) pitched six innings and didnt allow a run. Three relievers completed the eight-hitter, and Kyle Barraclough pitched around a pair of two-out singles in the ninth for his ninth save and the Marlins eighth shutout. The Phils went 0 for 5 with runners in scoring position. Miami won with four hits. Attendance was 14,793 on bark at the park day, with fans invited to bring along a dog. The crowd was the largest at Marlins Park since April 14. Djokovic defeats Nadal to reach 5th Wimbledon finalBy HOWARD FENDRICHAssociated PressLONDON From the way Novak Djokovic repeatedly smacked his racket against his shoe after one miss, to the shouts directed at himself and his coach after others, it was clear how much he wanted to prove hes past the roughest patch of his career. Djokovic sent the strongest signal yet he is back at the top of tennis by reaching his fifth Wimbledon final with a 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (9), 3-6, 10-8 victory over rival Rafael Nadal on Saturday in a match suspended overnight. It really could have gone either ways, said Djokovic, who is bidding for a fourth championship at the All England Club and 13th Grand Slam title overall. Basically until the last shot, I didnt know if I was going to win. Hell face Kevin Anderson in Sundays final. Anderson beat John Isner in a 6-hour semifinal that ended at 26-24 fifth set Friday night, pushing back the start of Djokovic vs. Nadal. The second semifinal then was halted when the third set ended just past 11 p.m., because of a neighborhood curfew. It had started with Centre Courts retractable roof closed and so concluded that way, too, even though there was no hint of rain. It all made for an unusual schedule, with the start of the womens final normally the stand-alone showcase on the fortnights last Saturday delayed until Nadal and Djokovic finished. Djokovic hasnt won a major in more than two years, dealing with an injured right elbow that was so painful in 2017 he quit his quarterfinal at Wimbledon and sat out the rest of the season. He had surgery in February, but his results were still shaky. Until now, that is. His defense and returning are as good as ever and made the difference in his 52nd career tour-level meeting with Nadal, more than any other two men have played. In my opinion, he deserved it, Nadal said. I deserved it, too. Undaunted by losing a lead and being forced to an extra set, Djokovic saved break points at 4-all and 7-all in the fifth, before breaking Nadal at love to end things. Its hard to pick the words, said Djokovic, who has won his past eight five-setters at Wimbledon. Im just going through things, flashbacks of the last 15 months, and everything Ive been through to get here. This was high-decibel, high-stakes, high-quality tennis between two of the greats right from the get-go, beginning with an 18-point, six-deuce game that last 15 minutes and felt truly pivotal. It included a 23-stroke exchange and three others of at least 11. Nadal saved two break points and when he finally held, the owner 17 major championships, two at Wimbledon, punched the air and yelled as if hed won the match, not a solitary game. But it was Djokovic who tended to be better down the stretch in his 52nd career meeting against Nadal in a contest that seemed as if it should be worth a trophy. Anderson far less accomplished than either of these two he owns zero Grand Slam titles but he also is coming off a pair of strenuous five-setters, including his 13-11 win against eighttime Wimbledon champion Roger Federer in the quarterfinals. WORLD CUPBelgium beats England to finish thirdBy JAMES ELLINGWORTHAssociated PressST. PETERSBURG, Russia For Belgium and England, the third-place match at the World Cup was more like a dress rehearsal for future finals. At least they hope. The Belgians earned their best World Cup finish by beating England 2-0 on Saturday in a match both saw as the start of a push for the European Championship title in 2020 or the World Cup in 2022. Thomas Meunier and Hazard both scored at St. Petersburg Stadium in a match between the two semifinal losers. France and Croatia will play in the final on Sunday at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. The French beat Belgium on Tuesday in the semifinals, while the Croats defeated England on Wednesday. England matched its best World Cup result fourth in 1990 since winning the tournament for the only time in 1966. Meuniers goal matched a World Cup record for Belgium by having 10 different players score in a tournament, something only done before by France in 1982 and Italy in 2006. Meunier scored in the fourth minute, knocking a cross from Nacer Chadli past England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford. Hazard added the other off a pass from Kevin De Bruyne in the 82nd. Toby Alderweireld denied Englands best chance of the game, sliding on the goal line to clear a shot from Eric Dier. Belgiums previous best finish at the World Cup was fourth, but the team outplayed England in the midfield to go one better this time. for the half-century of professional tennis, one ahead of Kerbers idol, Graf. Williams gave birth only 10 months ago, then was treated for blood clots She wore special compression leggings as a precaution during Wimbledon, just the fourth tournament of her comeback. After all the time away, Williams spoke about being impressed with herself for just reaching the final. She also wanted to win, of course. To all the moms out there, I was playing for you today and I tried, said the 36-year-old American, her voice shaking during the trophy ceremony. Kerber addressed Williams during the on-court interviews, saying: Youre such an inspiration for everybody, for all of us. Im sure you will have your next Grand Slam title soon. Im really, really sure. Despite so much Grand Slam success, despite holding a 6-2 career edge against Kerber entering the day, Williams played tightly right from the outset. Kerber celebrated match point by covering her face and collapsing flat on her back, getting grass stains on her white outfit. She relished the moment she had dreamt about as a little kid, watching Graf on TV. After embracing Williams, she climbed into the stands to hug her coach Wim Fissette and her family. Later, Kerber sipped champagne and collected the round, purple badge given to a champion to signify membership in the All England Club. Winning here, its forever, Kerber said. Nobody can take the title away from me now. KERNER Continued From 1B
SU NDAY, JULY 15, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER 3B OUTDOORSBreak down at sea cant walk homeBy MONTY STEHPENSSpecial to the ReporterIn hundreds of fishing trips, I only broke down one time. It happened to me on a family trip fishing. We had put in at Horseshoe Beach. We were running to the Pretty Pole in a Dolphin 16-foot Backcountry Skiff, just two miles or so north of the spoil banks, when my motor just stopped. The motor was running perfectly and all of a sudden it was just like someone reached down and turned the key off. The boat settled down to its floating level and we started drifting. I always have a tool box onboard with starting fluid, spare plugs, duct tape and a bunch of other stuff. So I pulled the cowling off and got to work checking fuel hoses, spark plugs and other things. I tried for an hour or so to get the motor running to no avail. The wind had laid down and the heat was intense. This was not good for any of us but especially not for my 10-year-old daughter. So I waved at two fishermen (elderly gentlemen) who were riding in two aluminum Jon boats. They both came over and asked what was wrong. After explaining our plight to them, they proceeded to chastise me for not keeping my boat in good order. I think only because I had a child on board, did one of them reluctantly agreed to tow me in. Safely back at Dockside Marina, I thanked him and offered $40 for gas money. He told me to keep my money and chastised me some more. As we were parting I heard him mutter some people have no business owning boat. Turns out my motor had blown its Power Pack. Back in the day, the power pack was the heart of the electronic ignition system. There is no fixing a power pack or predicting when it might fail. Todays boat motors are even way more high tech. If a new motor today stopped running out at sea, fixing it with hand tools would be very difficult. The safety of the passengers and vessel quickly comes into play. Since there is no walking home or riding to the store for parts, the only option is get a tow back in. Boaters should know, if there is a break down at sea, the Coast Guard or FWC will most likely not tow your boat in. If human life is in peril, they may take the boater onboard as a passenger but leave the boat. To meet this need, several companies have been created to help stranded boaters. In our area we have Tow Boat USA and Sea Tow. Both are great companies and offer similar products but Sea Tow is inarguably the most prevalent. The local Sea Tow franchise is based out of Horseshoe Beach and on the gulf, covering Yankeetown to Keaton Beach. Sea Tow has boats in Steinhatchee, Horseshoe Beach and Cedar Key. For offshore assistance, Sea Tow runs 30-feet plus Twin V catamarans. Captain Sammy Royal from Sea Tow shared he also has boats to assist boaters on lakes, creeks and the rivers. If a boater is able to contact Sea Tow for help, Sea Tow will respond. Captain Sammy told a story about a boater on a brand new pontoon boat he rescued last month. The boater had gone out with a few friends to go scalloping. At the end of the day, for some reason, the motor would not start. The boater knew very little about her boat. She did not drop an anchor, was out of cell phone range and didnt know how to operate her VHS radio. She drifted 32 miles out to sea before being spotted the next day by a Coast Guard C -130. The Coast Guard alerted Sea Tow. The outcome of this story could have been catastrophic. Perhaps the crotchety fisherman at Horseshoe Beach had a point, some people have no business owning a boat. A Sea Tow membership is $179 per year. One of the privileges is 24/7 assistance anywhere in west-central, north Florida. Captain Sammy noted he has assisted boaters as far north as I-10 in Suwannee County. On the fourth of July, Sea Tow performed 11 boat tows. Boaters without a membership in any towboat company will be billed based on how long the rescue takes. The cost for a tow begins when the tow boat leaves the dock and starts at $300. The tow boat runs at 23 knots to reach the stranded boater. On the return trip, the speed towing the stranded vessel back in will be in the six to seven knot range. If the boater is not a member, a three to five hour tow could easily cost $900 or more. Captain Sammy stated their mission at Sea Tow is ensure the safety of boaters and help people have enjoyable time on the water not to make a lot of money. A tow-boat membership is something to think about. More information can be found at www.seatow.com or www.boatus.com.COURTESYOne of the typical rescue boats that will respond when a breakdown occurs. laps, Busch and Keselowski loomed as favorites after combining for five victories in the previous seven races. Keselowskis knack for winning this race in even-numbered years was especially compelling, and for a moment it looked like he might do it again with a bold rush off pit road to claim the lead entering the final segment. Truex soon took care of that before Busch grabbed the lead on lap 210, a brief edge as the defending Cup champion took over for good 14 laps later. Truexs dominant run to victory last July provided an opening some hoped might expand membership in Kentucky Speedways exclusive winners club. He turned out keeping things the same by taking control when he wanted. It was that way all night for Truex, who led 51 laps to win the first stage and led 118 after claiming the second. Even when he trailed, it wasnt by much as he stayed close enough to make a run. Rounding out the top 10 were Kurt Busch, Erik Jones who started second in a Toyota Aric Almirola, Kyle Larson and Joey Logano. Larson ran in the top five for much of the night, an impressive performance considering he started from the back of the field as penalty for missing driver introductions.

6B LAKE CITY REPOR TER SPORTS SUNDAY, JULY 15, 2018 Floridas Dan Mullen, who isnt new to the league, but will be wearing a different color necktie than his previous eight trips. Heres five burning questions the first-year coach will inevitably be asked: 1. Hows the quarterback competition going? The revolving question every offseason at Florida one that hasnt been answered since Tim Tebow left town. Mullen certainly will be asked about the ongoing competition between Feleipe Franks, Kyle Trask and Emory Jones. If nobody has separated themselves by the fall, would Mullen consider a two-man system? I know some fans grimace at the thought but it could be the most likely scenario. Dont expect a starter to be named any time soon. 2. Hows the transition been with the new defense? Florida made Todd Grantham the highest paid assistant in school history. Theres no doubt Mullen will be questioned about the former UGA defensive coordinator, who helped fuel the UGA-UF rivalry with the infamous choke sign in 2010. Grantham has a reputation for being a change-agent, so expect eyes to be on that 3-4 defense as the offense tries to catch up. How are the players adjusting? Hows the summer workouts been? Mullen will be peppered with defensive questions. 3. How strong is this wide receiver group? This is arguably the strongest unit on that side of the ball, if transfers Trevon Grimes and Van Jefferson can suit up (still awaiting word). Tyrie Cleveland and Dre Massey are also back as well as the human joystick Kadarius Toney. So if Florida can someone who can deliver the strikes downfield, there could be an upside to an offense that has made Florida fans pull their hair out for years now. With Mullen adding new wrinkles and schemes, I am sure hell be asked about the development of his wideouts and their ability to adapt to his offensive system. 4. What difference has Nick Savage made? Mullen brought along several of his comrades from Mississippi State. But one of those key holdovers might turn out to be Nick Savage. Floridas new Director of Football Strength and Conditioning is already making his mark, by preaching accountability and mental toughness. The truth is: the best teams work just as hard during the offseason as the regular season. I never heard McElwain talk about the importance of detail as much as Mullen. If he has success early on in Gainesville, its hard not to point to Savage as one of the biggest difference-makers in 2018. 5. What do you think your emotions will be like on Sept. 29? In case you didnt know, the Gators return to Starkville to face Mullens former team that day. While Mullen probably will downplay the homecoming, that doesnt mean fans of both teams wont be anticipating his first trip back to Mississippi State. Its just not Mullen either, several on his staff, too, as well as Florida athletic director Scott Stricklin. So Florida fans get ready to hear those cowbells rocking all night long.

I could do a fundraiser, I could do a boys and girls club, but my biggest thing is always giving back because I never had nobody give back when I was young. The camp featured boys and girls of all ages. Day 1 included kids ages 6 to 11 while those ages 12 and up took part in the second day. Day 2 saw kids participate in head on in 7on7 drills as well as other activates. Tunsil says his two years holding the camp has helped him reflect on his time as a child in Lake City, especially considering his football career began in Memorial Stadium at the age of eight. I just wanted to keep around football because Im also playing football, Tunsil said. But the camp is for the kids to come out and see what they can do, let them have fun, let them run around and just have some free time to do whatever they want. Several people assisted Tunsil during the camp, including family, coaches and former teammates. Countless volunteers also helped Columbia County recreation director Mario Coppock and event coordinator Adee Farmer put the camp together with Tunsil. Equipment, T-shirts, lunch were all provided to the kids in attendance. Lake City Middle also required its football players to attend the second day, helping the camps numbers rise from a year ago. I walked away from the camp and asked the parents how it was and they said it was great and thats what its about, Â Far mer said. Â Its about the commu nity here and the kids. Tunsil also hopes to put on an event in South Florida in the near future. I actually want to do something in Miami. I dont know what yet, Tunsil said. I was talking to one of my boys, Fahn Cooper, who actually played at Ole Miss with me. I was thinking of doing like a basketball thing just to get involved with the community down there. Prior to being drafted 13th overall by the Dolphins in 2016, Tunsil was an AllAmerican at Ole Miss after being recruited as a five-star prospect out of Columbia. Tunsil made the NFL AllRookie Team in 2017 at left guard before moving over to left tackle last season. The Dolphins open training on July 25 and Tunsil has big goals for his third season in the league. Im trying to get it done. I hope we get that Super Bowl ring. Im trying to have a little ring on my finger, Tunsil said.Photos by JEN CHASTEEN/Special to the ReporterFormer Columbia High star and current Miami Dolphins left tackle Laremy Tunsil held a two-day free camp over the weekend. Fridays session included kids ages six to 11 while Saturday featured kids ages 12 and up. TUNSIL Continued From 1B

Late that afternoon, it officially dedicated the combined cardiology and general surgery facility, at what was previously the office of Dr. Tommy Randolph. Dr. Thomas Salvucci and Dr. Edwin Gonzales will now occupy this area. We just thought it would be good to have our two specialists in one location, said Lynn Witt, director of Physician Practices. Lake City Mayor Stephen Witt, Columbia County Sheriff Mark Hunter, Chamber Director Denille Decker and a number of others were in attendance at the event, which feature catered food and an official ribbon cutting ceremony at 5:15 p.m. The new facilities reflected a total remodel. Were making things more efficient and convenient for the patients, said Linda Silecchia, marketing director for Shands Lake Shore. In Gonzaless words, the new facility is open for business. This facility will help us provide easier and faster care for the patients, including the latest technology in robotic surgery and more than 30 years in treating patients with breast cancer, he said.

2C LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, JULY 1521, 2018 What if the insurance carriers wont help?Dear Dave, I started looking at life insurance policies after my wife and I had our daughter. During the screening process, I found out I had testicular cancer. I went through treatments, and the doctors have officially declared me to be in remission. Still, I cant find a life insurance company that will work with me. I have a small policy through my employer, that is equal to double my salary. Do you have any suggestions for finding additional coverage? Nate Dear Nate, Its great news that youre in remission. Im really happy for you, buddy. I know your wife is thrilled, too. I would advise conducting a search of every guaranteed issue company and policy out there. The term, guaranteed issue, means they dont do a medical check. The problem is these policies generally run 10 to 20 times more per thousand than those where you qualify medically. So, youre not going to get a lot during this time. Check at work, and see if you can buy more and add it to the coverage they already provide. Some employers provide a double-up option if youre willing to pay for the additional coverage. If you can, and the price is reasonable, do it. If you have a mortgage, call the mortgage company and get mortgage life insurance. Its gimmick insurance and something I dont normally recommend but many times you can get it without medical clearance. Once you get past that threeto five-year window where many insurance companies will work with you again, try to find a good, level term life insurance policy with coverage thats 10 to 12 times your income, and drop all this other stuff. In the meantime, pick up anything else you can find even if its those little $10,000 policies banks sometimes attach to your checking account for $20. Pile up those little odds and ends, until you get as much coverage as you can within reason. God bless you and your family, Nate. Dave Dave Ramsey is Americas trusted voice on money and business, and CEO of Ramsey Solutions. He has authored best-selling books and hosts The Dave Ramsey Show. Dave RamseyCEO of Ramsey SolutionsDAVE SAYS The smartest way to pay for college expensesI spend a lot of time talking with students about big life decisions theyll face, and one of the most important is how to pay for college. At a recent speaking event, I asked 100 students if they believed they could ever pay cash for college. Eighty-seven of them said no. Now, I know this isnt a scientific research project. But when I asked those same students why they said no, they told me college costs too much. They figured there would be no way to pay for college without taking out student loans. For those of you who think the same way, its time to think again. I want you to see theres simply no reason for a teen you care about to go into debt for college. OUT-OF-CONTROL DEBT IS WEIGHING STUDENTS DOWN Heres a number to get you thinking about the student debt crisis in America: $1.2 trillion. According to Debt.org, thats how much school debt Americans owe right now. How did it get that high? The majority of young people in America have accepted the popular myth that student loans are just part of life. And its not just the teens from my little survey who believe this. In 2017, Student Loan Hero reported that the average college student graduates with over $37,000 dollars in student loan debt. As someone who once racked up $25,000 in student loan debt myself, I can relate to people who borrowed to go to school or who still believe its the only way. Heres some good news though. Theres a much better way to pay for a college education. A BETTER WAY As I said before, most of the students I talked to were doubtful about cash-flowing college. But 13 of them agreed that it is, in fact, possible to go to college debt-free. Lets talk about how more students are getting it done every year. Theres money available in many forms to help students go to college without loans. A 2015 study by NerdWallet revealed over $2 billion in grant and scholarship money goes unclaimed every year. All that cash could have put a big dent in the billions owed by so many students nationwide. Whats stopping the teens in your life from claiming those dollars for themselves? There are literally thousands of college scholarships out there. All it takes is a little research and the willpower to apply. FINDING COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS AND FINANCIAL AID The internet is an awesome resource for scholarship hunting. There are tons of great websites, like MyScholly.com, that help students find money for school. However, these resources are only helpful if theyre used. Heres my advice for students to get the most out of their search for college dollars. In middle school, students should spend about 30 minutes a day searching for, and applying to get, scholarships. By the time they reach high school, students should spend about an hour each day doing the same. During the summer, high school students should treat the search for scholarship dollars like a part-time job, and plan to put in four hours a day. I know students who did this, and they ended up with more than enough money to pay for school and graduate completely debt-free! And heres one more thing to keep in mind when it comes to paying for college the FAFSA. I know, it sounds weird, but it stands for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Students have to fill it out every year they go to college. Its not just used to determine eligibility for student loans. Its also used to determine eligibility for grants, scholarships, and work-study programs. The earlier applicants complete the FAFSA, the better. Students can begin the process as early as October 1 (for the following school year), though they will need to come back after January to update their income tax information. Remember, debt is not necessary to get a college degree. There are ways to pay for college without taking student loans, and being in debt for 10 years after graduation. Yes, it takes some research and hard work, but cash-flowing college is possible!

W EEK OF SUNDAY, JULY 1521, 2018 BUSINESS LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER 3C3-D a game changer for veterinary surgery at UFFrom UF HealthA Greater Swiss Mountain Dog named Chance, rescued in Canada after being abandoned with a severe limb deformity, is walking better today, thanks to veterinarians at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine who used advanced 3-D technology to operate on him in February. A pot-bellied pig named Bebop, who also received limb-corrective surgery at UF last November with 3-D printing help, is back to rooting in his yard in Port St. Lucie, Florida, which hed stopped doing after a painful shoulder injury. Chance and Bebop are the first two clinical cases treated over the past six months at UF through the use of a stateof-the-art 3-D printer that uses high-performance plastics and offers numerous advances in patient care, teaching and research, UF veterinarians say. Among the printers capabilities are the ability to create bone models with which veterinarians can practice a surgical procedure before the actual surgery, and the ability to create patient-specific surgical guides that improve accuracy and reduce surgery time. We have the Rolls-Royce of 3-D printers, said Adam Biedrzycki, B.V.Sc., Ph.D., an assistant professor of large animal surgery at UF, who purchased the printer with start-up funds when he was hired by the UF College of Veterinary Medicine three years ago. It can not only print parts that are approved in the aerospace industry to go into aircraft but also parts that are biocompatible for medical applications. That is, they can be used in live tissues. This is important, he said, because he and UF small animal surgeons, including Stanley Kim, B.V.Sc., an associate professor of small animal surgery who sought out a collaboration with the Biedrzycki lab and subsequently operated on Chance, wanted bone models that actually feel and handle like the real thing during presurgery practice. If you use cheap plastic, when you drill it or cut it, it tends to melt, so it does not perform like the real thing, Biedrzycki said. So, for practicing surgeries or for teaching, it is not the best thing. Although 3-D technology is being used in surgeries at a handful of veterinary teaching hospitals in the United States, UFs printing capabilities are unique for several reasons. The printer and the materials it uses are high quality, being located at the college allows for a quick turnaround time, and the software allows surgeries to be planned out on a computer ahead of time. We can first make the cuts and simulate the repair and unite the bones virtually with plates and screws in the 3-D computer environment, then print them out and complete the surgery using the printed models, Biedrzycki said. This means time spent on the front end leads to time saved in the operating room, greater patient safety due to reduced risk and enhancement of surgical accuracy. The process begins with the inputting of diagnostic CT scans into specialized software the veterinarians use to plan a specific surgical procedure. Then, a model of the patients bone is printed, to which a customized 3-D printed surgical guide is attached. We affix the guide with a couple of pins, and like Cinderellas slipper, it fits absolutely perfectly and only fits that bone, Kim said. Its matched to the contour of the bone, then we know just where to cut. He said the printers primary usefulness clinically is the ability to create these customized printed guides. Biedrzycki has only used the technology clinically on Bebop, the pot-bellied pig, who had a chronic shoulder luxation that required a complicated surgery to correct. We didnt use the guide in Bebops case, but we eyeballed where wed make the cut on the bones, then contoured bone plates to fit the model so wed know where to put the plates in surgery. The procedure went much more rapidly because we did a lot of the hard work beforehand. Biedrzycki is investigating the technologys potential for surgery on horse hooves. He also is excited about the potential use of 3-D printing in teaching and research. We are doing and trying things with the 3-D printer in the veterinary medical field that people havent done before, particularly if you look at the implantable high-performance plastics, Biedrzycki said. What is key for us is that the printer is in a surgeon-friendly lab rather than locked away in some engineering department on campus printing one-off examples. The guides and work we are doing are changing the way we approach cases. We hope that the knowledge and expertise we have will allow this to become routine, benefiting many more patients. Kristin Campbell of Port St. Lucie, Bebops owner, said the 2-year-old pig is doing well and that his recovery exceeded their expectations. As for Chance, life has taken a huge turn for the better thanks to the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog Rescue Foundation, which facilitated his transport to UF and the procedure Kim conducted to help him. Chance was found tied to a pole with a note asking that someone please find a new home for him, said Pat Saxon, who is president and chair of the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog rescue group based in Bradenton. He was then taken to a shelter in Canada and we were contacted to see if we could help. A veterinarian in Canada diagnosed the dog with a bilateral patellar luxation due to limb deformities, with the right hind leg being the most severely affected. Aware of the 3-D technology, the veterinarian believed it could help Chance, although he felt the prognosis was guarded at best, Saxon said. Thankfully, Dr. (Stanley) Kims expertise proved him incorrect, she said. He was so gracious in answering any question I had prior to seeing Chance that we decided to take him to UF. During his recuperation period, Chance received water treadmill therapy in Sarasota and has continued to recuperate well. Although he may still need surgery on his other leg, Saxon plans to see how Chance does over the summer. We are so happy to see him be able to walk, run and play more normally, she said. The University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine is supported through funding from UF Health and the UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. Papa Johns pulling founders image from marketing effortsThe Associated Press Papa Johns, which has featured founder John Schnatter as the face of the company in logos and TV ads, is pulling his image from its marketing after reports he used a racial slur. His face was off at least some materials by late morning Friday, though the company said the details and exact timing for everything were still being worked out. The pizza chain said there are no plans to change its name. Schnatter is still on the board and is the companys largest shareholder meaning he remains a key presence. Papa Johns has acknowledged in regulatory filings that Schnatters public role as its pitchman could be a liability if his reputation was damaged. The company got a taste of that last year, when Schnatter stepped down as CEO after blaming disappointing pizza sales on the outcry surrounding football players kneeling during the national anthem. This week, Papa Johns was already trying to further publicly distance itself from Schnatter after Forbes reported he used the N-word during a conference call in May. Schnatter apologized and said he would resign as chairman. That prompted the companys stock to recover some of the losses it suffered after the report, and shares were up less than 1 percent Friday. Schnatter owns nearly 30 percent of the stock. In addition to appearing in TV ads, Schnatters image has been on packaging and at the center of a logo that usually was all over the website of the Louisville, Kentucky-based company. Keith Hollingsworth, a professor with Morehouse Colleges business department, said keeping Schnatter in the marketing and advertising would signal to people that the company does not have a problem with his comments, or that it doesnt think they are a big deal. Five years from now, they might be able to start bringing him back. But at the moment, you have to be very decisive and show you take this very seriously, Hollingsworth said. Schnatter had used the slur during a media training exercise, Forbes said. When asked how he would distance himself from racist groups, Schnatter reportedly complained that Colonel Sanders never faced a backlash for using the word. Schnatter subsequently issued a statement acknowledging the use of inappropriate and hurtful language. Regardless of the context, I apologize, the statement said. The fallout from his comments continued Friday. The University of Louisville said it will remove the Papa Johns name from its football stadium, and that it will rename the John H. Schnatter Center for Free Enterprise at its business college. Earlier in the week, the school said Schnatter resigned from its board of trustees. Major League Baseball had also said it was indefinitely suspending a promotion with Papa Johns that offered people discounts at the pizza chain after a player hit a grand slam. Papa Johns International Inc. began operations in 1984 and had more than 5,200 locations globally. The company cannot afford to alienate customers, with sales already under pressure from rivals such as Dominos. For the first three months of this year, Papa Johns said a key sales figure fell 5.3 percent in North America.Use of racial slur prompted change.Broward Health North Names Cole New Chief Financial OfficerThe Associated PressBroward Health has named Kim Braxl Cole, CPA, as chief financial officer of Broward Health North.

Stocks shuffle toward another weekly gain as oil prices riseThe Associated PressU.S. stock indexes are slightly higher Friday as energy companies rise with oil prices. Industrial companies and household goods makers are also higher. Banks are slipping as investors arent finding much to get excited about in second-quarter reports from JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup and Wells Fargo. AT&T is falling after the Department of Justice asked a court to overturn its purchase of Time Warner. KEEPING SCORE: The S&P 500 index was up 3 points, or 0.1 percent, to 2,801 as of 2:15 p.m. Eastern time. It had fallen as much as 6 points in early trading, then rose as much as 6 points before giving up about half of that gain. The Dow Jones Industrial Average added 106 points, or 0.4 percent, to 25,031. The Nasdaq composite gave up an early gain and fell 2 points to 7,821 after it closed at a record high on Thursday. The Russell 2000 index of smaller-company stocks fell 1 point, or 0.1 percent, to 1,689. Major indexes are on track for their second consecutive week of solid gains following a modest losing streak over the previous two weeks. Investors continued to waver between optimism about the growing U.S. economy, and the strong company earnings that come with it, and worries that the U.S.-China trade war and other trade disputes could set back the global economy. BANK RESULTS: The fallout from Wells Fargos phony accounts scandal continued to harm its business, and the largest U.S. mortgage lender posted a smaller profit than analysts expected. Its stock gave up 0.9 percent to $55.53. Citigroup fell 1.9 percent to $67.19 after it reported weak revenue growth. JPMorgan Chase fared better and picked up 0.2 percent to $107.03 While bank profits are surging this year, much of the growth has come from last years corporate tax cuts rather than a big improvement in their businesses. Bank stocks have fallen this year even though company profits are growing. Recently investors have worried about the shrinking gap between shortterm interest rates and longer-term ones because banks make a lot of their money by borrowing money at shortterm rates and lending it out over the long term. RETAIL RUN-UP: Home improvement retailer Lowes jumped 1.7 percent to $99.93 and Walmart climbed 1.4 percent to $87.73. Starbucks gained 1.9 percent to $51.23. While investors are taking money out of financials, they are more optimistic about technology companies and retailers. Companies in those industries are expected to post even stronger earnings growth later this summer. Industrial companies also logged gains on Friday. United Rentals added 1.2 percent to $154.13 and jet engine and elevator maker United Technologies rose 1.6 percent to $129.57.

Gov. Rick Scott on Monday issued an emergency order Monday for Glades, Hendry, Lee, Martin, Okeechobee, Palm Beach and St. Lucie counties over the reemergence of toxic algae outbreaks on both coasts. On Thursday, Scotts office announced that the Department of Economic Opportunity has activated the FloridaDisaster.biz Business Damage Assessment survey.

A true taste for the summer months If you planted your own garden this spring then you are in the midst of enjoying some of your homegrown vegetables and herbs. The area that we live in is such a fertile canvas for growing delicious and farm to table food. That makes us so lucky. One of my all time favorite summer loves is a few slices of homegrown tomato with fresh basil grown in my own pots, both slapped between simple white bread slathered with mayonnaise, sprinkled with salt and pepper and eaten over the sink. That is a necessity cause then the yummy juices dont drip on your clothes, just down your arms. A fancier way is to try pairing the tomatoes and basil with fresh mozzarella slices drizzled with balsamic served on a fresh baguette. If you dont have your own garden, watch for the local farmers who appear on our street corners with loads of produce straight from the fields. Other places that carry our locally grown produce are K.C.s and Fifth Generation Farms. I love shopping at these two spots as they dont package their produce and you can pick out your own. Summer is a great time to take advantage of our pleasant days with a lazy brunch or casual dinner. Most of these recipes can be prepared in advance so you have plenty of time to relax and visit with friends and family. You cant go wrong by starting with simply made Bloody Marys or Mimosas. Two favorite bottled Bloody mixes include Whiskey Willies or Zing Zang. Add a garnish of celery, pickled okra or a dill pickle spear (it really is quite good!) and youve got a tasty Bloody Mary libation. If mimosas are more appealing to you, try adding a splash of Grand Marnier to your champagne and Prosecco to make it extra special. A favorite accompaniment to that Bloody Mary is Aileen Crapps heavenly Blue Cheese and Bacon Puffs. They are not hard to make. Its similar to making a cream puff so it requires a little arm action but when they come out of the oven piping hot youll agree that it was worth it. Blue Cheese and Bacon Puffs 1 cups water cup butter or margarine 1 cups all-purpose flour tsp. salt tsp. black pepper tsp. red pepper 6 large eggs 8 oz. crumbled blue cheese 8 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled 4 green onions, finely chopped Bring 1 cups water and butter to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and next 3 ingredients; cook beating with a wooden spoon until mixture leaves sides of pan and forms a smooth ball of dough. Remove from heat and cool 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well with spoon after each addition. Beat in cheese, bacon and chopped green onions. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. (Puffs will be moist in center.) Serve either warm or at room temperature. Puffs may be frozen up to 3 months. Thaw in refrigerator overnight and reheat at 350 degrees for 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated. I have used cheddar so either will work. Mary Kay shared a good frittata recipe that includes fresh asparagus and pancetta. You can find fresh, tender asparagus that are still good this time of year. This recipe is delicious hot or cold and even the next day. Youll want to keep this recipe handy. Asparagus and Pancetta Frittata12 large eggs 1 cup Half n Half 1 cup grated parmigiano reggiano, divided in half 2 Tbsp Creole mustard or other hearty grain mustard 3 Tbsp olive oil 4 oz pancetta, roughly chopped 1 small shallot, minced (optional) 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and sliced cup fresh mushrooms, chopped (optional) Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 1) Whisk eggs, milk, cup parmigiano reggiano cheese, tsp salt and tsp fresh ground pepper. Set aside. 2) Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add pancetta and cook until softened but not browned. Saut shallot, mushrooms and asparagus and cook over medium heat until lightly browned. 3) Pour egg mixture into an oven proof skillet or 9x 13 baking dish. Add vegetable mixture evenly over eggs. DO NOT STIR. Sprinkle with remaining cup cheese. 4) Cook in 375 degree oven for 45 minutes or until lightly golden brown on top. Let cool 5 minutes. Cut into wedges or squares and serve. Serves 4-6 Yellow squash is abundant now and it happens to be one of my favorites. Chasteens, still fondly remembered as a Lake City landmark, made the most delicious squash casserole. Robert and Emmie generously shared their recipes so I thought you might like to try this one if you dont already have it.Squash Casserole4 lbs. yellow squash, sliced 3 large chopped onions 1 cups grated carrots 4 T butter or margarine 1 cups sour cream 1 cups cream of mushroom soup 3 cups Pepperidge Farm Herb Stuffing 1 cup grated cheese Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Boil squash in salted water approximately 5 minutes until fork tender. Drain and set aside. Saute onion and carrots in butter about 10 minutes. Mix all ingredients together but reserve one cup of stuffing for top. Cover with foil and bake in a 3 quart dish or 9 x 13 casserole dish at 350 degrees until hot and bubbly. Top with remaining cup of herb stuffing and return to oven for 10 minutes This meal needs to close with something sweet. Local blueberries are still available and I think you can actually go to the farms and still pick them. If not, try KCs and Fifth Generation. A warm blueberry muffin with a pat of butter sounds like an easy ending or accompaniment to this menu. Several years ago I attended the Lake City Reporters Taste of Home Cooking School and this is one of the recipes that was demonstrated. It is now one of my favorites, only 5 ingredients, you cant get any easier than this unless you buy muffins. Blueberry muffins2 cups biscuit baking mix cup sugar 2 eggs 1 cup sour cream (8oz) 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries 1.Heat oven to 375 degrees 2. Combine the biscuit mix and cups a sugar in a bowl. Add 2 eggs and sour cream and stir until combined. Fold in the blueberries. 3. Fill greased muffin tins three-fourths full. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before removing from the pan. Cool on wire rack. Makes 12 muffins. Make your summer even tastier by preparing your dishes using homegrown or local produce. Its tastier and healthier. Next year Ive promised myself that Im going to try, again, to grow my own tomatoes. Genie Norman is a Columbia County resident who loves good food and fun.

Love is the best present to give grandson with Down SyndromeDEAR ABBY Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com DEAR ABBY: We have three grandchildren and are due to make our annual visit. Two of the children are easy to plan for, and we have good relationships with them. The third is a 12-yearold boy with Down syndrome, and we struggle with how to deal with him -what to do and what to buy him. Any ideas? -UNSURE IN THE SOUTH DEAR UNSURE: The most important thing you can bring with you on your visit is a heart filled with love, and the determination that your grandson will know you love him. Spending one-on-one time together would make him feel special. Every child needs validation and affection on their journey toward adulthood. With the self-confidence it brings, Down syndrome children can live full and happy lives. The questions youre asking me are ones your grandsons parents can answer for you. What he could use and various activities you can share should be easy questions for them to answer. I have printed a wonderful poem on this subject in my column before. It was written by Edna Massimilla, and I think it is timely. Edna is 102 now and still as energetic and with it as ever. Read on: HEAVENS VERY SPECIAL CHILD A meeting was held so far from Earth. It was the time for another birth. The Angels said to the Lord above -- This special child will need much love. For progr ess may be very slow, Accomplishment may never show. This special child will need much care From the people way down there. This child may not talk, r un or play, And thoughts may seem so far away. In many ways will not try to adapt Known as dis abled and handicapped. Please be car eful where this one is sent. We want this child to be so content. O please, Lord, find the parents who Will do a very special job for You. They will not realize right away The leading role that they have to play. But with this child sent from above Comes stronger faith, and richer love. Soon theyll know the privilege given In caring for their gift from Heaven. Their precious child, so meek and mild Is Heavens very special child.
4D SU NDAY, JULY 15, 2018 LIFE LAKE CITY REPORTER Swing music and Pioneer Square a Seattle hubBefore leaving on an Alaskan cruise several years back, we visited Seattle for a full day. Our hotel is the old Arctic Club and its old. Very nice though. We have a suite with a shared balcony. First thing I did was check out my views. To the left, I have a very clear view of Mt. Rainier, further right are the ball parks, home to the Seahawk s and Mariners and then I have a slight view of Elliott Bay. We decided to walk around and check some things out. Our first stop was Pioneer Square to see the totem pole. However, it was covered withscaffolding because it looks like they are preserving it. Then we walked up First Street towards Pike Place Market (and I mean UPthe hills here reminded me of the streets of San Francisco). Our ultimate destination is The Pink Door. Its a restaurant on Post Alley. It does not have a sign, but you know you have arrived when you see the pink door. This is a very eclectic place. They feature trapeze artists two nights a week, live music and on Saturdays burlesque shows. Wish we were here on a Saturday. We had a swing band, sort of. Anyway, we werent super hungry so shared some appetizers. However, I say share loosely. Scott got roasted garlic (gosh I hope its not coming out of his pores later lol!) and they had a salmon cake special, made with Alaskan King salmon, smoked salmon and goat cheese. These were awesome. Scott didnt like my choice and I wasnt a fan of the roasted garlic either. While at Pike Place Market, I found the piggy bank. Tourists, mainly, like to put money in the piggy bank and its donated to local charities. Ironically, its Fleet Week here and weve seen lots of sailors. Havent see the Blue Angels yet, but weve been in San Francisco during Fleet Week a few times. Next, we met our group at the Sheraton hotel to catch the pink double decker bus. We decided to ride the hop on/hop off bus for the full tour before getting off, which lasted about an hour. We got the highlights and saw the building they use as the front for Seattle Grace Hospital and the coffee shop from the TV show Frasier. Theres also a neighborhood they nickname, DINKS (Double Income No Kids). Everyone in our group turned and looked at us We had lunch reservations for Sky City. Its the restaurant at the top of the Space Needle. It was really cool because it rotated 360 degrees so we had views every step of the way. The food was really good and the drinks better. After lunch we walked up a flight of stairs and actually went out onto the observation deck. Our last stop, The Underground Tour. It starts out in an old public room or Bar with a little Seattle history. We learned that those hills we were walking have an 18% incline or grade. Prior to them raising the city at the water, the grade was 49%. They had to raise the city due to sewage problems with the tidal changes back in the early days, by building it up with lots of fill dirt. Then we went underground in three different areas of Pioneer Square. It was interesting to see some of the debris still down there where the city used to be. The tour was just okay, not something Id recommend to anyone or do again. Overall, Id come back to Seattle, but not just to visit the city, but to use it as a hub for day trips in the area, which seem to be plentiful.

Streaming rules Emmys as Netflix snaps 17-year HBO streakThe Associated PressWhen Netflix snapped HBOs 17-year streak as Emmy nominations leader, more than bragging rights switched hands. It represented the breathtaking change in how audiences get and watch TV and the threat to traditional TV networks from streaming services. Especially one like Netflix, whose multibillion-dollar investment in programming allowed it to rocket Thursday to 112 nominations just five years after launching its first original series, House of Cards. Thats double the total of nods it earned in 2016 and just ahead of HBOs 108 nods (down two from 2017). Another streamed series, Hulus The Handmaids Tale, earned 20 nominations and a chance to defend its title as best drama series at the 70th Primetime Emmy ceremony airing Sept. 17 on NBC. HBO still boasts the years most-nominated series, Game of Thrones (22 nods) and Westworld (20), while Netflix fielded The Crown (13 nods) and Stranger Things (12). The more distribution platforms, the more contents getting created, the more people are going to be working. ... Its good news for us in the industry, said Maury McIntyre, TV academy president. Its also good news for viewers, he said, who will always be able to find something theyre going to like. It all about niche broadcasting now. You can make a show and find an audience. It may not be a core audience, but it can be a hard-core audience, he said. Ted Sarandos, Netflixs chief content officer, saluted our creative partners on their unprecedented success today in a statement noting that the nominations were gained across a wide variety of categories, including scripted, documentary and comedy specials. Netflixs deep-pockets approach has lured a number of TVs biggest creative stars, including Shonda Rhimes and Ryan Murphy, away from traditional outlets. Broadcast networks are taking the hardest blow, with their ratings as well as awards diminishing as viewers search out the more distinctive and edgy programming on unregulated cable and streaming outlets. Police procedurals and the current network rage for sitcom revivals certainly failed to impress Emmy voters. The short-lived revival of Roseanne, canceled because of star Roseanne Barrs racist tweet, drew only one major nomination, a supporting actress nod for Laurie Metcalf. Another revival, Will & Grace, got Emmy love for nominees Megan Mullally and Molly Shannon but the main stars and series itself were snubbed.
