By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comAfter a foot pursuit, two men who reportedly put guns to a police informants head were arrested Monday during a multi-jurisdictional drug task force sting operation. Joseph Phillip Enriquez, 19, of NW Alaska Glen, Lake City, is charged with armed robbery, false imprisonment, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, possession of burglary tools, resisting arrest without violence and tampering with a witness by preventing the witness to contact 911 in connection with the case. He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Center on $292,000 bond. Michael Anthony Berry, 19, of Derbyshire Road, Daytona, was charged with armed robbery, false imprisonment, resisting arrest with violence, battery on a law enforcement officer, possession of burglary tools and tampering with a witness by preventing the witness to contact with 911 in connection with the case. He was taken to jail on a $300,000 bond. According to Columbia County Sheriffs Office reports, a confidential source said he had been in contact the past two days with Joseph JoJo Enriquez, who was willing to sell him two guns and an eight of marijuana for $440, and sent the police informant a picture of three firearms, two pistols and a long rifle with a wooden stock. During the arranged meeting the informant and Enriquez began having a disagreement. Enriquez reportedly kept asking the informant to go into the basement at 344 NW DeSoto Street to finalize the sale of the guns, but the informant refused. At some point, Berry came out the basement of 344 NW DeSoto Street with a rifle and approached the informant. Enriquez also had a gun and the informant asked him to remove the magazine. The suspects continued to try to get the informant into the basement. Enriquez and Berry both placed his guns to the informants head as Berry demanded money. The informant complied and gave them all his money and they then took the informants cell phone, drivers license and bank card. The robbery took place next door to the DeSoto Street address, outside in the front By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comCity Council District 10 candidate Clarence Tucker was disqualified from the race after failing to convince a judge that he meets residency requirements. Tucker went before Third Circuit Judge Andrew Decker for an emergency hearing Wednesday morning at the Columbia County Courthouse to determine whether he satisfied the city charter, which requires permanent residency to be established in a district one year before qualifying to run for its council seat. Tucker told Decker he spends one or two nights a week at the address he listed on his candidacy paperwork, 923 Coldwater Avenue, but had no lease with the owner, no receipts for rent payments and claimed a homestead exemption on another property. The testimony from Tucker and his supposed housemate also didnt help convince Decker, who said the court did not find their statements about the casual arrangement credible. Its always regrettable when a court has to make the decisions that it will make this morning to render a person ineligible to be on the ballot, Decker said as he made his ruling. And based on the substantial and competent evidence presented, the court finds that you do not qualify as a resident of District 10 at 923 Coldwater. The legal challenge was brought by Glenel Bowden, a former District 10 candidate who dropped out of the race to support Tuckers other opponent, Vanessa George. Bowdens case centered on the testimony of Willie James Bradley, whose signature is on the lease for 923 Coldwater Avenue. Hes been saying that you did not stay there, Bowden told Tucker. Bradley was a no-show in the courtroom, prompting a short recess as deputies secured him and brought him before the judge. Bradley told the Lake City Reporter in June that Tucker didnt live there, backtracking on a claim he made one day prior that the candidate stayed there sporadically. But in court, Bradley said he had switched his story because he feared the property owner, who explained to the Lake City Reporter that adding unauthorized tenants violated the lease. They put pressure on me, he told the judge. Tucker backed up that narrative. His back got up against the wall, so thats why he turned, Tucker said. She pressured him that she would put him out if he didnt say he lied. But Bradley still gave conflicting testimonies saying at one point Tucker had been staying there off and on again for eight months, then saying the candidate had only been staying there since earlier this year. Either scenario would fall short of the city charters one-year residency requirement. Tucker told the judge Bradley was mistaken about the dates, saying hed been staying at the property since February 2017 and paid rent in cash. Bowden said the property owner inspected the home in October and found no traces of Tucker, citing the Lake City Reporter. Theres nothing to indicate anyone lived [there] than the person on the lease, Bowden said. Tucker is a partial owner of his mothers home at 1356 NE Washington St., which has a homestead exemption. After the court heard from City Clerk Audrey Sikes about ministerial matters, Columbia County Supervisor of Elections Liz Horne testified that it was too late to strike Tuckers name from the physical ballot, and the only thing she could do would be to put signs at all relevant polling places stating votes for him will not count. Tucker declined to cross-examine any witnesses and submitted no evidence to the court. He did not object to the evidence submitted by Bowden which included a receipt for court documents received at the Washington Street address and the copy of the lease for the Coldwater Avenue home. Bowden and Tucker could not be reached for comment after the hearing. 2A TH URSDAY, J UU L YY 19, 2018 D aA ILY BRIEFING L AA KE CIT 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+.

Slots or not? Back to court for cafe games case centered on games produced by Blue Sky Games and leased by Jacksonvillebased Gator Coin II Inc., after a Tallahassee judge last year sided with gambling regulators who maintain that the games violate a Florida law banning slot machines in most parts of the state. Proponents of the devices, known as pre-reveal games, contend that the machines are legal because the computer games include a preview feature that advises players of the outcome of the games. In January, after raiding an Ellisville sweepstakes cafe, also known as an internet cafe, Siegmeister said the pre-reveal games could run afoul of broader gambling laws, regardless of whether they are classified as slot machines which are specifically prohibited. Originally, Siegmeister opted not to go after establishments with pre-reveal games, since their legality was a gray area. I took the position that I wasnt going to holler foul unless I knew for sure or believed ethically that I had a good case to make that argument, he said. Instead, Siegmeister went after fish tables games which resemble classic arcade games, but are heavily based on probability because he believed there was a stronger case they violated anti-gambling laws. After the January raid, Siegmeister announced his opinion on pre-reveal games had evolved. Most of those machines are probably gambling, he said. Critics of pre-reveal games, including the Department of Business and Professional Regulation, say the preview feature doesnt matter because the random number generator used to create the games equates to the definition of slot machines, which are games of chance, under state law. Theres nothing players can do to affect the outcome of the game, which fits the definition of slots, department attorney Daniel McGinn told a three-judge panel Tuesday. But Bryan DeMaggio, a lawyer representing Gator Coin, argued that the element of chance was removed because players are advised whether they will win before playing. The randomness of the game is removed when the player knows the outcome, he said. He can walk away at any time. He doesnt have to play, DeMaggio said. A key issue in the case involves whether the slot-machine law applies to playing a single game or a series of games. While the outcome of the first game is revealed in advance, a player at the outset does not know the results of subsequent games. Judge James Wolf repeatedly asked lawyers on both sides if the court should consider whether a single game or a series of games violates the law. Im a simple kind of guy. It comes down to whether we can consider the entire course of the play or one particular game. Their argument is one particular game is not a game of chance because you know the outcome. What in the statute allows us to consider the entire course of play? he asked, pointing out that the state law defines slot machines, in part, as a device whose outcome is unpredictable by the user. The answer rests in the way the machines generate the games, which the state believes violates the law, said McGinn, whose department regulates gambling. From our perspective, it doesnt matter whether its one game. It doesnt matter whether its multiple games, he said. The appeal follows a decision last year by Leon County Circuit Judge John Cooper, who reversed himself after originally siding with the manufacturer and distributor of the machines. Cooper changed his mind after the Seminole Tribe of Florida asked him to reconsider the decision. Blue Sky and Gator Coin sued the state after investigators with the Division of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms decided the games were effectively illegal slot machines and began confiscating the devices. The Seminoles, who intervened in the case on the side of regulators, asked the Legislature to address the legality of the games or risk having the state lose millions of dollars in a revenue-sharing agreement that gives the tribe the exclusive rights to operate slots outside Broward and Miami-Dade counties. But lawmakers earlier this year failed to approve any legislation that would remedy the dispute. Gator Coin owners Kathey Fanning and her son, Jonathan, said the machines are simply another form of entertainment --such as pool tables and jukeboxes --leased by bar owners who have alcohol licenses. She said her company, founded in 1946, has warehouses full of the machines and is picking up even more devices weekly, as regulators continue to give notice to operators that particular machines may be illegal. The locations of course are concerned. They dont want to lose their alcohol license, Kathey Fanning told reporters after Tuesdays hearing. The mother-and-son pair stressed that the machines they lease to small businesses cant be found in game rooms, internet cafes or other questionable storefronts. We are strictly dealing with people that are in a licensed environment, that are in a controlled environment, Kathey Fanning said. DeMaggio told The News Service of Florida the judges understand the issues involved in the case. They perceive the issues. I think ultimately its going to rise and fall on whether they consider it one game or a series of games, he said after Tuesdays arguments. You dont have to be a lawyer to have sat through that to realize that thats arguably what the court is wrestling with. Its our contention that its one game and one play. And if they reject that, were going to lose. The News Service of Florida contributed to this story. GAMESContinued From 1AFILELaw enforcement officers collect evidence during the raid of a Columbia County internet cafe in January.


As news consumers, were swamped with information. Whether we read newspapers, watch cable news, or get stories from Aunt Judy on Facebook, we must decide which information is trustworthy. Advocacy journalism outlets including Fox News and MSNBC, ideological talk radio, and conspiracy websites like InfoWars make this difficult. Was Trump snookered by North Korea? Will his tariff war hurt the economy? How we answer that sort of questions may depend on where we get our news. As the midterm elections approach, we must be prepared for another misinformation onslaught from Russia. Media organizations are taking steps to push back. On July 6, the Washington Post reported that Twitter has purged 70 million fake and suspicious accounts since May to reduce the misinformation spread on its platform. Three days later, YouTube announced that it was giving $25 million to support legitimate news organizations, flag misinformation, and highlight authoritative news sources. Those actions reflect the emerging movement to help people become savvy news consumers. Media literacy organizations such as the National Association for Media Literacy Education, the Center for Media Literacy, and the News Literacy Project work to promote informed news consumption. Dozens of fact-checking organizations call out falsehoods by politicians and others. They include such well-known outlets as FactCheck. org, the Washington Posts FactChecker, Snopes and PolitiFact. A report from Duke Reporters Lab this year counted 149 fact-checking projects in 53 countries. Recently in Rome, more than 200 fact checkers from 56 countries participated in the worlds largest fact-checking conference. The fake news fiasco of 2016 spurred public outrage and led to government action. According to Media Literacy Now, several states introduced or continued consideration of media literacy legislation in 2017 and 2018. In 2017, Washington, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and New Mexico passed media literacy education laws. All states should enact similar measures. Many universities now have media literacy majors and programs. The State University of New York at Stony Brook created the Center for News Literacy in 2007, which teaches undergraduate students to use critical thinking skills to judge the credibility of news reports. The website AllSides provides differing perspectives on major issues, sorting news stories from the left, right, and center. By fall, NewsGuard will be launched to fight fake news by providing users with reliability ratings and nutrition labels for 7,500 news and information websites. In May, Facebook announced plans to start a news literacy campaign by offering tips on how to detect fake news and by recruiting researchers to look for misinformation on its website. In early July, reported that the WikiProject will create news information boxes to help Google users judge the veracity of local news organizations. All these measures are important, but without individual responsibility, they wont amount to much. Ultimately, the burden falls on all of us to be savvy news consumers and confirm the information in the messages that bombard us constantly. Dont believe everything Aunt Judy sends you on Facebook; verify it by checking several news sources. When you see misinformation, warn others. Russian bots and trolls wanting to destabilize the United States, Macedonian teenagers seeking profits, and misleading memes will be in full force for the 2018 midterms. They will set out to dupe you. Will you be able to sort out the truth from misinformation?

This mission will be accomplished through the teamwork of professionals dedicated to truth, integrity and hard work. Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINIONJustice is served so farThe drama is over in District 10 at least for now. After hearing the evidence, a judge on Wednesday removed Clarence Tucker from the August 28 City Council ballot, ruling he did not live where he said he did. Circuit Judge Andrew J. Decker III decided the case partly on the grounds that even Tuckers own witness a man who claimed the candidate rented a room in his District 10 home said Tucker had only been there for eight months or less, too short a time to satisfy city residency requirements. But Decker went further. He told Tucker that he found parts of his testimony lacking in credibility. Tuckers truthfulness had already been put in question by the state attorneys office, which is investigating whether he lied on a sworn affidavit claiming residency in city limits. Deckers finding that he did not in fact live where he said, may add weight to that possible finding. The state attorneys office should pursue this case to its legal conclusion and determine whether a crime was committed, either on the affidavit or in open court. If perjury has occurred, it should be prosecuted. The underlying issue here the sanctity of the electoral process is far too important to declare no harm, no foul and be done with it. City elections, especially in District 10, have been marred by scandal before, and many of those who live there have come to wonder whether laws that are never enforced really mean anything. Theres more than Clarence Tuckers credibility at stake here. Once faith in the system is lost, we all pay the price, no matter where we lay our heads. Fact-checking starts with youTheres a not-so-new self-defense weapon that needs its own defenders in Texas. And you can count us in. Thats because its pretty clear that Texas law discriminates against the pink kitty key chain, especially popular among women who carry it for protection when theyre walking to their cars at night, or into a dark parking garage. In Texas you can be thrown in the county jail for a year or be fined up to $4,000 if youre caught with this 3by-2 inch plastic item dangling from your steering column. Thats ridiculous when its legal to openly carry a loaded handgun or long-bladed Bowie knife capable of fatally slicing and dicing an adversary. The kitty keychain is illegal under section 46.05 of the Texas Penal Code, which puts it in the same category as illegal brass knuckles, which users slide onto their hands to cause greater damage when they throw a punch. With the keychain you put your fingers through the cats eye openings, make a fist, and strike an attacker with the pointed cats ears that protrude. OK, sure, someone could lose it and use the kitty to attack and stick a neighbor in the heat of an argument. But that could happen with a dinner fork, too. The problem here could be that the key chain sells for $5 online, instead of the $500 it might cost for a 9-mm Glock. The kitty doesnt have a powerful, moneymaking lobby that contributes to lawmakers who in turn could peel back restrictions. Perhaps theres no one in Austin demanding carrying rights for the kitty, because whats in it for them? But consider what Irv Miller, president of the online company Self Defense and Security Products has to say. He sells the expensive stuff and the kitty, and says the key chain is his No. 1 seller by volume. Its very effective if used properly and quickly, he says. Making it illegal denies women the right to carry something simple and effective if they choose not to carry a gun. Were not saying the key chains are a womens-only weapon, but Miller says women are by far the biggest purchasers. So ladies, your right to carry these little critters legally may depend or your making some noise in Austin. Better yet, the same lawmakers advocating for other self-defense weapons should recognize the hypocrisy of excluding this affordable security item. State lawmakers, its time to give the kitty key chain its due. Thats our cat call.Why is this keychain illegal in Texas?Larry Atkins, the author of Skewed: A Critical Thinkers Guide to Media Bias (Prometheus Books), teaches journalism at Temple University and Arcadia University.

They were on scene within seconds, where they saw the suspects fleeing on foot. Both suspects were armed with handguns as they fled. Berry ran around the house of 344 NW DeSoto and back onto DeSoto Street. Officers caught up to Berry after about 100 yards and he turned and charged at officers and was knocked down, but continued to resist arrest, striking and kicking officers several times before he was detained. Officers then found Enriquez hiding behind a fence on an abandoned residence. Officers searched the two properties to find additional evidence and found the pistol Berry had in his possession in the backyard of 344 NW DeSoto Street next to the house. Authorities found a duffel bag containing a long rifle with a wood stock and a small handgun was found next to Enriquez when he was captured. Berry admitted to officers that he and Enriquez planned to rob the informant, that he and Enriquez traveled to Lake City from Holly Hill for that purpose, and they were driven to town by two women in a yellow Ford Mustang, who were later located and questioned.

Girl power at FGCFrom staff reportsBoth instructors and students were hard at work last week at the Nutrien Girl Power Leadership Camp, which ran July 9 12 at Florida Gateway College. This is the first year that FGC has offered the camp, which focuses on empowerment and strong leadership skills for women and girls. Activities were aimed at helping girls develop skills in communication, motivation, and project management. A featured guest at the camp was actress, musician and Lake City native Karley Scott Collins, who spoke to the girls about setting goals as well as performed several songs. Additional sessions covered personal health and wellness, self-awareness, and other topics. Nutrien of White Springs sponsored the event and made a donation of $5,000 to the camp. The donation funded 30 scholarships for the camp and cover operating costs for participants, girls aged 10 to 18. The camp ran from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day. Lunch was provided and a total of 32 participants took part. We are very happy with the success of the Girl Power Summer Camp and our partnership with Nutrien that made it possible, said FGC spokesperson Stephen Culotti. We are especially pleased that so many women in local business and community leadership made the time to come speak with the girls and show them the opportunities that lie before them. For more information, and to register for other FGC Summer Camps, visit AA ctress and musician Karley SS cott C ollins, at right, a native of Lake City, was one of the featured guests of FGCs Nutrien Girl Power Camp. SS he talked t o the girls about striving to reach their goals and performed a selection of songs. FGC Law Enforcement AA cademy instructor Cynthia SS ikes held a session on self-de fense, teaching the campers how to recognize a dangerous situation and how to fend off a would-be attacker.COURTESY PHOTOS was one the groups to see its funding request cut. Representatives of the music festival were at the event to petition for the amount that doubled last years grant. Its definitely a lot of money, said Nick Patel, TDC council member and local hotel owner. Mind you, you guys have done a great job last year. He said as a hotel they would have to make $400,000 in hotel sales at 5 percent bed tax to generate $20,000. The $15,000 approved for the event included a $10,000 sponsorship and $5,000 in shuttle fees to help pay for guest transport from Lake City hotels to the festival. The founder of Lake City based Infinity Con, David Heringer, had request ed $2,000 to help with the events sixth year in the county. TDC Vice Chairman Tim Murphy came out against the proposal and later council member Patel said he didnt know enough about the event. Ultimately, Heringer was allotted only $1,000 on stipulation he provide attendance figures and hotel bookings generated by the event plus show how it was marketed. Lastly, the $1,500 request of the Annual Goodwill Games Basketball Tournament held at Richardson Community Center and Annie Mattox Park North Inc. was reduced to $800 based on 2017 attendance rates. The newcomer to receive $5,000 in TDC funds was the Florida High School Rodeo. We had a few things that we added that were requesting for the year one new event that came to ask for a bit of funding but overall it was a pretty standard budget, said TDC Executive Director Paula Vann. Two events held in Suwannee County at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park the Suwannee River Jam and the Wanee Festival were approved for a total of $8,500. Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in Hamilton County got $2,500 for the Florida Folk Festival. Vann said they are regularly approached with questions about providing funding for out-of-county events like Party in the Pines. We get that question quite often of, Hey theyre in a different county why are you giving them money? Vann said. But the people that are going to these events stay at our hotels because Hamilton County, Suwannee County, they dont have many hotels so they stay here and thats why we provide the shuttles. Wednesdays allocations still have to be approved by the County Commission before they go into effect. TDCContinued From 1A

Contact Eric Jackson or Jordan Kroeger754-0420 SEC MEDIA DAYSCoaches dont want transfer rules leading to free agencyCOURTESY By CHARLES ODUMAssociated PressATLANTA For all their talk about wanting what is best for players, SEC coaches draw the line at new rules pushing college football closer to free agency. For those coaches, free agency for players ended on high school signing day. The Southeastern Conference recently passed new rules making it easier for players to transfer within the league and be immediately eligible without a waiver, either as graduates or when leaving a team hit with NCAA sanctions. Before the new rule, graduate transfers had to sit out a year when moving to a new SEC school. Such coaches as Georgias Kirby Smart and Floridas Dan Mullen worry the new rules could move the league closer to free agency if more freedoms to players are granted. They cringe at the idea players could be eventually empowered to seek transfers as soon as they drop on the depth chart or are asked to run extra laps. Ive expressed my belief in a guy who graduates from college being able to go where he wants to go, Smart said Tuesday at SEC Media Days. I feel very strongly about that, but when you start talking about every year ... Ive got to be honest with you, its hard. Smart said it would be especially tempting for freshmen, struggling to adjust to college life, to look elsewhere if it were easier for them to transfer. Its not easy your first year in college, Smart said. Its one of the biggest adjustments you go through in life. So to be able to make it easy to leave, I think thats tough. I think its a fine line. I want the players to be able to have the freedom and rights, but its tough. Put yourself in that situation when you come in there and youve been told how good you are your whole life and its difficult to make that transition. Smarts support for graduate transfers having immediate eligibility became well known when he successfully New rules makes it easier for players to be immediately eligible without a waiver.

By DOUG FERGUSONAssociated PressCARNOUSTIE, Scotland The eve of the British Open felt like cramming for a final exam, a multiple choice one with no obvious answers. The wind that blows off the North Sea across the exposed links of Carnoustie has not been the primary concern during practice rounds. Players have a reasonable idea how far the ball travels in the air. They just dont know how far it goes on the ground. If you get it downwind and you hit that little flat draw and it gets running, it will go pretty much until it runs into something, Justin Thomas said. Thats not entirely true. Thomas hit a tee shot on the third hole Wednesday afternoon that rolled across the humps in the fairway and kept right on rolling. It looked as though it would run into a bunker, or maybe even the handle of a rake leaning on the left edge of the bunker. It missed both and eventually came to a stop 232 yards away. His club off the tee was an 8-iron. Tiger Woods doesnt see many occasions to hit driver because of how far the ball is rolling across tight links grass that looks dead.

Gronk suffered a concussion on the play. By CLAUDIA LAUER Associated PressPHILADELPHIA Lawyers representing former NFL players estimated Wednesday that payouts from the concussion settlement with the league will top $1.4 billion, a $400 million jump because of thousands more players filing claims. The number of players who filed to be a part of the settlement is outpacing all previous estimates and could keep growing, the lawyers said in a federal court filing based on estimates from an actuary. The estimate accounts for players who have filed claims and those who have officially given notice that they intend to file claims. The actuary said participation rates are 21 percent higher than estimated when the settlement was reached. As of July 16, 499 claims totaling more than $485 million had been approved, according to the filing. The massive increase in estimated payout came the same day a judge denied a request from the league to appoint a special investigator to look into what the league said are extensive fraudulent claims against the settlement fund. Judge Anita Brody wrote in her federal court ruling By AARON BEARD Associated PressCHARLOTTE North Carolina coach Larry Fedora said Wednesday he doesnt believe its been proven that football causes the degenerative brain disease CTE and offered a passionate defense of a sport he believes is under attack. Fedora, during interviews at Atlantic Coast Conference preseason media days, described the sport as an integral part of American culture and said it is safer right now than its ever been, though he acknowledged the risk of concussions in a sport featuring constant collisions. It wasnt clear who Fedora was referring to in saying the game was under attack, with the seventh-year Tar Heels coach noting, for example, its more about people twisting data to argue football is unsafe. He also said players should be educated on the risks of the game. I dont think that the FedoraOPEN continued on 5B TRANSFER continued on 2B NFL continued on 5B CTE continued on 5B B1

Dwyane Wade signs lifetime deal with Li-Ning MIAMI (AP) Dwyane Wade has a new contract with his shoe company. Wade and the Chinese apparel company Li-Ning announced that the three-time NBA champion has signed a lifetime contract with the brand, which he has represented since 2012. The finalizing of that deal coincided with Wade and the company revealing his latest shoe, the Way of Wade 7, at an event in Beijing on Wednesday. Wade appeared at the event with the companys CEO and namesake Li Ning, who is still revered in China for his gymnastics success. This was something I needed to do from the standpoint of building some thing, Wade told The Associated Press in a phone interview from China. Thats what I set out to do. This word we all talk about, legacy, I tried to set out to build a legacy for myself and my family. And after six years of that, its cool to be here today. Financial details of the contract were not revealed, though its believed the total value to Wade could reach tens of millions of dollars. Wades relationship with Li-Ning began in 2012, after he previously was an endorser for Converse and Jordan Brand. In addition to the continued production of basketball and lifestyle apparel, the new deal calls for Wade to take a greater role in youth develop mental camps and basketball clinics in China and other parts of the world over the coming years. Both sides see the benefits of it, Wade said. We see the opportunity to do something special. Dodgers land All-Star Machado from Orioles The Los Angeles Dodgers have won the Manny Machado sweepstakes, garnering the prized All-Star shortstop from the Baltimore Orioles in a trade Wednesday night. A person with knowledge of the deal confirmed the trade to The Associated Press. Another person with knowledge of the trade said the Orioles will receive five prospects: outfielder Yusniel Diaz, right-hander Dean Kremer, third base man Rylan Bannon, righty Zach Pop and third baseman Breyvic Valera. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal has not yet been announced. Machado, a power-hitter with extraordinary fielding skills, greatly improves the Dodgers chances of reaching the World Series for a second consecutive year. He led Baltimore in batting average (.315), home runs (24) and RBIs (65). Machado is expected to be introduced in Milwaukee on Friday before the Dodgers open a series vs. the Brewers.

R Cartoon PresidentCartoon PresidentShameless COURTESYCoach Nick Saban of Alabama speaks during the ceremony for the acceptance of The Macarthur Bowl trophy which is in front of him at the SEC Media Days at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta.SEC MEDIA DAYSSaban is still the star of the show Associated PressATLANTA Nick Saban peeked around the curtain, wondering if it was time to make his grand appearance. Ever yone else at Southeaster n Conference Media Days must accept a supporting role. Saban is the undisputed star of the show. Just a few months removed from his record-tying sixth national champion ship, the Alabama coach straightened his crimson tie, clear ed his thr oat and held court for a half-hour at the College Football Hall of Fame on Wednesday. He touched on a wide range of sub jects, all while making it clear which ones wouldnt r eveal the least bit of insight (most notably the Crimson Tides quarterback dilemma, which he brushed off with a preemptive still to be determined). He never wavered much from his lecturing tone, except to throw in a slight bit of disdain even while telling the assembled media how excited he was to be her e (sor ry, that was one time he didnt sound the least bit persuasive). Saban will turn 67 on Halloween. Amazingly, said linebacker Anfernee Jenkins, he seems to be getting younger. That age-defying assessment cant be too comforting to a conference that has been trying for more than a decade without much success to knock Saban from his throne. I really enjoy what Im doing right now, and as long as Im healthy and I can do it, Im going to continue to do it and not worry about any numbers or what my age is or anything like that, he said. I would not want to be in the position where I ever rode the pro gram down because I wasnt capable of making a contribution that would be positive to the success of the program. No worries there. Sabans sixth national title the one that pulled him even with Bear Bryant for the most by any coach in college football history might have been his greatest of all. The Crimson Tide battled a rash of injuries, especially on the defensive side of the line. There was a loss to bitter rival Auburn in the regu lar-season finale, a defeat that cost Alabama a shot at the SEC title. Then, after claiming a spot in the playof f and knocking of f defending national champion Clemson in the semifinals, Saban faced an excruciating decision in the title game. With his team down 13-0 to Georgia at halftime and doing nothing offen sively, Saban yanked starting quar terback Jalen Hurts despite a 25-2 car eer r ecord as a starter and inserted freshman Tua Tagovailoa. All the young Hawaiian did was throw three touchdown passes, including a 41-yard scoring strike in overtime to give the Crimson Tide another national crown There was tremendous adversity, probably more adversity than any championship team weve ever had, Saban allowed, in a rare instance of looking backward. This was more self-fulfilling maybe than ever before. Of course, he didnt linger long on the past. Never does. He probably celebrated that night, Jenkins said, and then he was back to recruiting the next day. Sabans success has put the rest of the mighty SEC into a perpetual state of catch-up, most notably by focusing their coaching hires on someone anyone who has been touched by the masters genius. Five of his former assistants have gone on to head coaching jobs in the SEC. While Jim McElwain didnt last long at Florida, the other four most notably, Kirby Smart of rising powerhouse Georgia will be trying to knock Saban off his pedestal this season. Each other coach, regardless of pedigree, is aware of the challenge he faces. Even during Media Days. When I saw the list earlier in the spring and saw I was speaking on the same day as coach Saban, I was a little worried I was going to have to go after him, said Mississippi States new coach, Joe Moorhead. It would be like taking the stage and perform ing after the Beatles. Fortunately for Moor head, he spoke before Saban. Sure, he was nothing more than a warm-up act, but that beats being an afterthought. As with any season, Saban faces a unique set of challenges. Hell have to sort out the quarterback situation and cope with the fallout when he finally names a starter. Hell be dealing with an unusually high amount of turn over on his staff, breaking in six new coaches including r eplacements for defensive coor dinator Jeremy Pruitt (the new coach at Tennessee) and offensive coordinator Brian Daboll (who moved on to the same post with the Buffalo Bills). But as long as Saban is at the top of the organization, as he calls it, Alabama should be just fine. Someone asked how much say his wife, Terry, would have over his deci sion to finally call it a career. Mrs. T er ry does not want me at home, Saban said, flashing a bit of the dry humor he doesnt get enough credit for. She doesnt care if Im 60, 70, or 80. Shes looking for something for me to do. As for his health, Saban pointed to the pickup basketball games that are a treasured part of his rare times away from the gridiron. Our noontime basketball team was undefeated again this year, Saban said, so thats always an indicator to me that I can make it through another season. lobbied for defensive back Maurice Smiths move from Alabama to the Bulldogs in 2016. The leagues decision on Smith helped pave the way for this years rules change on graduate transfers. Mullen says hes waiting to see if the new rules make a positive impact on the league. As its implemented and we get to see how it works, its hard to say whether its going to be good or bad, Mullen said Tuesday. I dont think anybody wants to get into having free agency in college football. But I think we also want to make sure were doing the best we can for student-athletes and the best we can for universities. Mullen said he wouldnt want his two children to have an opportunity to quit instead of working through adversity. One of the things I dont want is to ever have them put in a situation where as soon as something gets hard, I want to transfer, quit or do something else, he said. I dont think thats good parenting. I dont think thats educating young people. TRANSFER Continued From 1B B2


ARIES (March 21-April 19): Keep busy and lend a helping hand. Do your best not to make snap judgments or decisions that can leave you in a vulnerable or awkward position. Make adjustments and proceed forward with a plan. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Dont under estimate what someone else might say or do. Be fully prepared to counter any aggressive action with facts. Keeping a level head will help you bring about positive change without upsetting someone who could cause problems for you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Interact with people who have something to contribute. Whether you are challenged physically or mentally, knowing your opponent will help coax those on your team to help you gain acceptance and accomplish what you set out to do. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Look for the outlet that excites you most. Getting involved in something you feel passionate about will encourage you to put in the time and eort to surpass your initial plans. A partnership will undergo a positive change with a kind gesture. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Express your intentions and listen to suggestions. Finding a way to please everyone wont be easy, but it will help you avoid discord. Too much of anything will lead to loss. Distance yourself from indulgent or narcissistic people. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Focus on yourself and how best to improve your health, physical appearance and important relationships. Putting more thought into the changes you want to bring about will ensure help moving forward. Take the initiative and make things happen. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): If you have to use force, you should rethink your plan of attack. An intelligent idea that is well-presented will help you weed out those who arent interested, leaving you with the right people to help you put your plans in motion. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Rely on your basic instincts when you feel the urge to indulge in something you know you shouldnt. Temptation will be the negative in your life, while health and love will encourage progress. Lean toward the positive and forgo a senseless battle. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Easy does it. Rely on your intelligence and ability to gather the facts, not what someone else leads you to believe. Keep your money, possessions and personal identity in a safe place. Avoid excessive and persuasive individuals. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): e art of the deal is in the palm of your hand. Refuse to let greed or emotions ruin what youve worked so hard to acquire. Know your boundaries and what you are up against. Be aware of when to say no. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Emotional or aggressive behavior will be upsetting. Walk away from anyone trying to get you to part with your money. An aggressive sales pitch must not undermine your sense of what you need and what you can do without. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Look for the best deal and oer the most ecient suggestions and help. Dont let someone in an authoritative position put undue pressure on you to reveal information that could set you up for a fall. Protect your reputation. LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, JULY 19, 2018 3B CIPHER DEAR ABBY: I was widowed seven years ago. When my husband died, I thought it was the end of my suering. It had been a mentally and physically abusive marriage for 30 years. We were complete opposites and were always nancially stressed. I have decided to start dating again. I want to meet someone and hopefully feel loved. I joined a dating website, but the men on it look disturbed and creepy. I have no friends, and I feel like Im dying. Im 57. Where are all the good men? I am at a loss. My boss told me I should consider dating women since I have had no luck meeting men. She is pushing me into meeting her lesbian friend. Her friend was in an abusive marriage, and her husband is no longer in her life. Abby, Im shocked that she would even suggest it. Im considering quitting my job because its awkward being around my boss. She started joking about it with other co-workers until I told her to stop bringing up the subject. Even though she has curbed her tongue, the fact still remains that my co-workers know she wanted to match me with a woman. I cringe working around her and want to crawl under a rock. Please help. -LONGING TO BE LOVED DEAR LONGING: Its time to join some dierent dating sites and enlarge your pool of dating prospects. However, when you do, keep in mind that your marital history may have negatively aected your judgment about men. Dating does not carry with it a guar antee of love. Your relationship with your husband should have shown you that. Also, because a man doesnt photograph well does not mean hes disturbed or creepy. (One womans creep can be another womans Prince Charming.) at said, if I ever heard about creating a hostile work environment, what your boss did is a textbook example and should have been discussed with HR. Joking about an employees sexuality is considered to be both discriminatory and a form of sexual harassment. Her behavior was beyond the pale, and you should start looking for another job. DEAR AB BY: My 47-year-old son is employed at a prestigious university. His position involves a considerable amount of travel. Over the years, he always emailed us his travel plans along with ight information. Lately, he tells us when and where he is going but omits the ight, hotel information, etc. When we ask, our requests are ignored. When we tell him we think its irresponsible for him not to share this information, his response is, My secretary has the information if there are any problems. We always give our children our travel information, ights, hotels, etc. when we travel. Our question is, are we out of line for wanting this information from him? -LOVING PAR ENTS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE DEAR PARENTS: You are not out of line for wanting the information; you are out of line for insisting your adult son give it to you over his objection. Your son is 47. He is no longer a child. Its time to back o. Abigail Van Widow returns to the dating pool and finds troubled water DILBERT BABY BLUES BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.

C. Williams AU437/AB3447 352-258-0604 IN PRINT & ONLINE this dry since Hoylake in 2006, when Woods hit only one driver all week and captured the Open for the third time. This might not be much different. Its just hard to keep the ball in play, he said. Its going to be an interesting test to see which clubs were going to be using off the tees, and a lot of it is dependent on which way the wind blows. So the whole idea of these practice rounds is just to get a good feel for what Im going to do, and then adjust accordingly. Others are coming to a different conclusion. Because while the links are as fast as ever, the rough is too thin, too wispy to wreak havoc. Dustin Johnson, the No. 1 player in the world, figures hell hit driver about half the time on the 15 holes that are not par 3s. Twotime U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka also is bullish on the big stick, saying the driver will come out on about eight or nine holes. Defending champion Jordan Spieth was considering his options on the final day of practice. On the 415-yard fourth hole, with a bunker on the right side of a dogleg left and another bunker farther out on the left side, he hit a fade over the right bunker. The other option is a long iron that splits the bunker. And then Spieth had another idea. Aim for the 4? he asked his caddie, Michael Greller. He then motioned to the gallery about 60 yards off the tee to scoot back a bit, and Spieth blasted a shot over their heads toward a yellow patch of rough that separates the right side of the fourth green from the 15th tee. Theres not enough deep grass to get into trouble. The answers will start arriving on Thursday when the 147th edition of the British Open and the eighth edition at Carnoustie gets started. I think theres not going to be one player in this field that has a game plan on Wednesday night and is going to stick to that game plan the whole way around for 72 holes, Rory McIlroy said. Its just not going to happen with wind condi tions, with pins. You start to feel a little bit more comfortable with a few shots, and you might start to take some on. Because the golf course is playing so firm and fast ... theres some guys that will see it completely different than the way I see it, and vice versa, he said. Its going to be really interesting to see how it all plays out. Sandy Lyle of Scotland, who won the Open in 1985, gets it start with the opening tee shot Thursday morning. Spieth, who will try to become the fifth player in the last 50 years to win back-to-back in the British Open, plays in the morning side of the draw. Among those playing in the afternoon are Woods, back at the Open for the first time since 2015, and Koepka, who will try to become the first player since Woods in that momentous summer of 2000 to win golfs two oldest championships. Carnoustie is regarded as the toughest of the links in any conditions, though it rarely sees this kind of yellow-and-brown conditions. The ball still rolls on brittle ground into the wind. Put the breeze at their backs, and some holes will have no more than a wedge into the greens. OPENContinued From 1B that the leagues attorneys had demonstrated that there is sufficient evidence of probable fraud to warrant serious concern. But Brody said a special master and a claims administrator have effectively ferreted out those claims for now. The audit process is working effectively, Brody wrote in her deferral ruling, saying if the claims administrator or special master notify the court an investigator is needed, the Court will rule on the motion at that time. The league requested an investigator and cited in its May argument an independent study it said found more than 400 claims recommended for denial based on evidence of fraud by attorneys, doctors and former players attempting to cheat the program. The league has said those attempts to scam the $1 billion settlement fund have slowed down the awarding of valid claims. The settlement, which took effect January 2017, resolved thousands of lawsuits that accused the NFL of hiding what it knew about the risks of repeated concussions. It covers retired players who develop Lou Gehrigs disease, dementia or other neurological problems believed to be caused by concussions suffered during their pro careers, with awards as high as $5 million for the most serious cases. Attorneys for the league had cited practices such as doctors seeing players for evaluation not in clinical settings, but in hotel rooms, law offices or other places. They also cited a doctor who said she spent seven to 12 hours evaluating each patient, but approved sometimes as many as eight patients a day. A lawyer for several plaintiffs said Wednesday that he and others representing the players supported Brodys decision. Since the NFL filed its motion more than three months ago, the claims process has continued to accelerate and the current audit process is working effectively, said Chris Seeger, co-lead counsel for the retired players. We will not allow a small number of potentially fraudulent claims to be used as an excuse by the NFL to deny payment to legitimately injured former players. In their May arguments, Seeger and other attorneys noted that the instances of fraudulent claims would be cut dramatically after the most recent rules for claims went into effect, including a list of approved physicians to determine eligibility. Brody warned in her ruling that she expects the process to ensure valid claims are promptly paid. game of football, that its been proven that the game of football causes CTE, Fedora said. But thats been put out there. We dont really know yet. Are there the chances for concussions in the game of football? Yeah, we all have common sense, right? Yeah, there are. When you have two people running into each other or multiple people running into each other, there is a chance of a concussion. But again, Im going to say, the game is safer than its ever been in the history of the game. Known to cause violent moods, depression, dementia and other cognitive difficulties, CTE has been linked to the repeated hits to the head endured by football and hockey players, boxers and members of the military. The NFLs billion-dollar concussion settlement included payouts for a qualifying diagnosis of CTE. North Carolina is home to a noted center researching sports-re lated brain injuries and Fedoras comments caused a stir at the ACC event, which opened two days of sessions with the leagues seven Coastal Division teams. He returned nearly two hours later to speak with a handful of reporters. Im not sure that anything is proven that football itself causes it, he said. Now we do know from what my under standing is that repeated blows to the head cause it. So Im assuming that every sport that you have, football included, could be a problem with that, right? As long as youve got any kind of contact, you could have that. That does not diminish the fact that the game is still safer than its ever been in the history of the game because we continue to tweak the game to try to make it safer for our players. Fedora also clarified his earlier comments to say the game wasnt under attack from rule tweaks to improve or promote safety. No, no, thats not what I meant, Fedora said. Hows the game under attack? To me, its more about people twisting the data and the information out there to use for whatever their agenda is. Tweaking the game doesnt mean that the game is under attack. Any time youre changing the game for the betterment for the health and safety of the players, youre doing a great thing. Asked if he believes the findings of some research studies on the topic, Fedora responded: Depends on the study. I believe some of the studies and theres some of them that I dont. But thats why you do studies, I think. NFLContinued From 1BCOURTESYCam Newton sat out one offensive snap after a big hit during a game last season. CTEContinued From 1B B5
