By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comAs he battles outgoing Gov. Rick Scott in the polls, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson on Tuesday made a stop in Lake City to tour the local VA hospital. Nelson arrived at the Lake City VA Medical Center around 2:30 p.m., where hospital administration, Lake City Police Department officers and Mayor Stephen Witt were there to greet the Democratic senator. As senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, its very important to me that our veterans are taken care of, Nelson said. Nelson said his last visit to the Lake City VA hospital was about four years ago. Whenever Im in the area, I want to check on veterans facilities, he said. Tuesdays tour was aimed at getting a sense of how long veterans are waiting for care, Nelson said. Ive never heard any veterans complain about the quality of care, he said. The complaints are that it takes too long to get an appointment. Nelson, who has served on the Senate since 2000, is locked in a battle with outgoing Gov. Rick Scott for the seat this election. A recent poll from Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy gave Scott a threepoint lead over Nelson 47 percent for Scott and 44 percent for Nelson, with the rest undecided. Nelson lost ground in that poll. Another poll from the same firm in February gave the incumbent senator a one-point lead over Scott.Tide turning against sales tax hike, See 2A + PLUS >> Needed: Test for pot impairmentOPINION Rollins wins age appealCHS FOOTBALLSee Page 1B See Page 4A Lake City ReporterWEDNESDAY, AUGU sS T 15, 2018 | YO UU R COMM UU NI TT Y NEWSPAPER SINCE 1874 | $1.00 LAKECI TT YREPOR TT ER.C OM CALL US: (386) 752-1293 SUBSCRIBE TO THE REPORTER: Voice: 755-5445 F ax: 752-9400 Vol. 143, No. 358 TODAYS WEATHER Opinion . . . . . . 4A Obituaries . . . . . . 5A Advice & Comics . . 3B Puzzles . . . . . . . 2B DEAR PHARMACISTHelp in case youre losing your mind, 8A. 90 72Chance of storms, 2A Lake Citys Only Local Family Owned and Operated New Car Dealership 386-752-2180 CERTIFIEDPRE-OWNED DC comes to LCU.S. Senator, Congressman visit town on same day Nelson tours VA hospital in hunt for votesDunn rallies, hears officials out on opioidsSee related story, 2A.By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comA U.S. Representative Neal Dunn met with local law enforcement authorities, healthcare officials, judges and prosecutors at Florida Gateway College to learn countywide drug abuse trends and to see if the opioid crisis has hit home. It was a busy day in Lake City for Dunn, who hours later addressed a standing room only crowd at a GOP rally at the fairgrounds. What started as a roundtable discussion led by Dunn about the effect of opiate-based drug abuse in Columbia County turned into a conversation regarding the unique difficulties faced on both the prescribing and prosecutorial side of prescription pain killers. Each community has its own take on this crisis, said Dunn at the open of the two hour summit. It is a crisis. The war on drugs was declared 49 years ago, next year will be 50. Its gotten worse. Weve lost the war year after year. It was the congressmans second visit to the area in a week. Late Friday, Dunn stopped in Lake City for a tour of a new VA primary care clinic soon to open. He said Tuesdays meeting was to learn the areas unique drug related difficulties, but also to provide the leaders there with information on resources like access to federal grant funding. We cannot treat it like a policing problem, said Dunn, a physician. Its a culture problem. It is not a Roundtable on drugs followed by GOP meet. Polls show him trailing Scott in re-election bid. Sen.

He said that was why the nearly 20 authorities from different fields were called to Florida Gateway College to discuss the matter. Lake City Police Chief Argatha Gilmore sat to Dunns left, and Sheriff Hunter to his right, followed by Third Judicial Circuit Judge Wesley Douglas. State Attorney Jeff Siegmeister weighed in heavily on the discussion, and nearby local law enforcement officials and task force supervisors shared their insider perspectives. County public health officials, a regional hospice director and two local hospital CEOs contributed to the discussion as healthcare professionals. Though the target was opiate related substances the first round of questions to Judge Douglas and Hunter indicated drug abuse was on a potentially more detrimental path in the area. Douglas speculated a crackdown on pill mills helped cut back on opioids, but methamphetamine and synthetic substances were prevalent. Hunter agreed. Right now in our circuit I would say that meth and the synthetics are more, way more problematic than the opioid, Hunter said. We still have opioid addiction here. He cited statistics of strictly opioid related overdoses in the county for the past three years. In 2015, Hunter said there were 12 related overdoses, 12 in 2016, 10 in 2017 and two so far this year. So were going down and not up in some ways, Dunn said in reply. So while we may have less opioid problem would it be fair to say that would we have more of a meth problem? Thats not a fix, thats not a repair. OPIOIDSContinued From 1ATide turning against sales tax hike All non-incumbent BOCC candidates now opposed to increase.By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comProminent politicians gathered in a packed room at the Columbia County Fairgrounds for a Republican Rally on Tuesday night including national figures such as Congressman Neal Dunn all the way down to state and local candidates. So it was ironic, said County Commission District 4 candidate Toby Witt, that a Republican function started out with talk about a one-cent sales tax headed for the ballot this month. Commissioners Ron William and Tim Murphy kicked the night off with a pitch in favor of the sales tax, which is now opposed by every non-incumbent candidate for the board after District 2 challenger Rocky Ford used the event as a chance to switch sides. Murphy said the tax is necessary because the county is operating on a deficit with road maintenance. As it stands right now, were $35 million in the hole, Murphy said, clarifying that the number is just for the upkeep of existing infrastructure. Murphy guaranteed that property taxes will come down if the sales tax passes, telling voters to kick him out of office if they dont. Williams said that tradeoff would shift the burden of paying for roads away from property owners and onto everybody including out-of-county visitors. We might have an extra sales tax, but we will have the lowest ad valorem taxes in this area, Williams said. After the two incumbent commissioners spoke, U.S. Rep. Neal Dunn, a Panama City Republican, boasted about the national GOPs accomplishments since Trump took office, while state Rep. Elizabeth Porter, who is leaving due to term limits, gave a farewell to her constituents. City Council candidates for Districts 10 and 14 spoke next, followed by County Commission District 4 candidates. District 4 incumbent Everett Phillips went first, listing accomplishments such as securing state funding for a water treatment plant in Ellisville and pledging to see if the county can do more for less. Then came challenger Toby Witt, who questioned the need for the sales tax and pointed out that the county has seen $47 million in revenue over expenses for the last 13 years. We dont have a revenue problem, weve got a spending problem, Witt said. County Commission District 2 candidate Rocky Ford, the only non-incumbent commission candidate who previously voiced support for the sales tax, did a 180 at the rally saying hed been reviewing past budgets and no longer considered it necessary. Ive come to the conclusion that the county doesnt have a problem with money, they have a problem with spending, Ford said. And the solutions not new taxes, he added. District 2 candidate Marc Kazmierski questioned why the county was able to fund road maintenance during the last recession, but claims to be unable to do so now. If it was done years ago, it can be done now, Kazmierski said. District 2 candidate Scott Thomason said he was glad Ford came aboard to oppose the sales tax. Also speaking at the event were the School Board District 1 and 5 candidates, candidates for Florida Commissioner of Agriculture and Attorney General and candidates in the state representative District 10 race.

Authorities say a driver impaired by marijuana caused a July 14 accident in the Bay Area that injured state Controller Betty Yee. When a vehicle driven by an allegedly stoned 25-year-old hit the one Yee was riding in, she passed out, the latest incident to illustrate the absolute need to develop tests that can reliably detect marijuana intoxication. Its crucial to public safety in the post-Proposition 64 era of legal recreational cannabis use. Several testing methods have already been developed. Among them are the Drager DrugTest 5000 machines owned by San Diego police, which use oral swabs to confirm the presence of drugs in the body, with positive results leading to follow-up blood tests. In a recent interview with The San Diego Union-Tribune Editorial Board, Police Chief David Nisleit said he believed it was an effective tool when combined with officers observations of drivers suspected of impairment. Canada also recently chose the Drager machines for national use. But it is just a matter of time before criminal defense attorneys realize that Drager also has plenty of skeptics. The Truth About Cars website noted Friday that some authorities in Australia and Ireland have lost faith in the devices accuracy and reliability. Closer to home, last year, an official with the Orange County District Attorneys Office voiced similar concerns, citing unacceptably high numbers of false test results. Heres hoping the UC San Diego Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research finds a better way. Its been tasked by the Legislature to come up with a reliable roadside test for marijuana impairment. Such a breakthrough would make the world a safer place.A few years ago, I wrote a column about Harambe, the gorilla at the Cincinnati Zoo who was euthanized after a child fell into his enclosure. I thought the mother was negligent in failing to supervise her toddler, who tumbled down an embankment and directly into harms way. That got me the front page of this paper, a guest appearance on CNN, and some serious blowback from the kind of people who think its mean to blame mothers when their kids fall into the arms of gorillas. I lost some friends, and I learned the lesson that when you criticize a parent, you set yourself up for some righteous indignation of the how dare you judge me, childless harridan! type. Still, Ive kept up the campaign against negligent parents. So far its been mommies who bear the brunt of my attacks, including the woman who didnt bother to stop doing drugs long enough to make sure her baby wasnt ingesting them through her breast milk. Then there was the mother who, just this past week, left her baby in a car, ignition and air conditioning on, allegedly intending to get a tattoo and a piercing. While these are all varying levels of culpability with the mom in the Harambe tragedy being at the bottom of the Mommy Dearest pyramid and addicted mom at the top there is a common narrative thread: Adults behaving like narcissistic and/or reckless idiots while their children pay the price for their mediocrity. And every time I write or otherwise opine about these outrageous acts of abuse and negligence, someone comes back at me with a finger pointed directly in my childless face and preaches about empathy. I have a suspicion that this is because we are loathe to criticize mothers, especially in a society where they are becoming increasingly rare. Statistics show that the days of the large families like mine I had five siblings are over. More importantly, we have this sense that women are often unfairly burdened with the lions share of the blame when something goes wrong. That could be the case, although I dont really think it matters to a child abused by his or her parent. This brings me to the story that broke my heart this week, making the other stories of gorillas and breast milk and tattoos take a back seat to the reality that there is evil in the world. Kayden Mancuso was murdered by her father this past weekend, her tiny skull crushed under his beatings. Her father then killed himself. What happened to Kayden was evil, and the man who did it to her was a monster whose depths of depravity and danger were known to a judge and a police department months before he killed his little girl. Jeff Mancuso was known to his family, to his ex-wife, to his community, to his daughter and more importantly, to the legal system in Bucks County as a violent man. He had bitten off someones ear, was aggressive with Kaydens teachers, had threatened his ex-wife with physical harm and had verbally and physically bullied people in the presence of his little girl. He shouldnt have been within 10 feet of that child. And still, his rights were more important than this 7-year-old girl who loved baseball and Disney princesses and dancing. The guiding principle in custody disputes is the best interests of the child, but in practice, thats rarely the case. The court system consistently protects the rights of biological parents, even when those parents are so obviously unfit. Ive known people who were abused as children, including my own father, and their stories were almost Dickensian. They managed to survive, but society didnt help them. They were forced to climb out of the pit by themselves. In the case of Kayden Mancuso, people in a position of power saw that she was hovering at the edge of that pit, and instead of pulling her back, they let her tumble in. They did it because her father had rights, just as a drug-addicted mother had rights, just as a woman who wanted a tattoo had rights. And in exchange for honoring those rights, one more tiny coffin.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman ANOTHER VIEWGenocide Only a year ago the military junta began a sustained assault on the people of Myanmars Rohingya district. Over a period of three months, the generals engaged in a campaign of rape, murder and fire, slaying in cold blood thousands of innocents, and burning more than 300 villages, determined to drive out the Muslims who had lived there for centuries. The evil campaign worked, leaving the civilized world in disbelief. The militarys terror campaign led to the creation of the worlds largest refugee camp, with more than 1 million Rohingyas now living in Bangladesh exile alone. Another million are scattered throughout Asia and fewer than 400,000 remain in their ancestral homelands. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is scheduled to mark these dark times in a speech as early as this week. As unbelievable as it may be, theres an argument over the tea cups in Foggy Bottom over what name to put on what has happened to the Rohingyans. An early draft of his remarks circulating through Foggy Bottom and at the White House includes the bracketed phrase [hold for determination] in the passage of the speech to describe what happened. Theres a name for it, and were happy to supply it for the timid folk at the State Department. Its correctly called genocide. An aspiring wordsmith can search his thesaurus all day to find a gentle euphemism or artful phrase, but as the poet would say, by any other name, what happened still stinks. The United States spends billions every year to support international organizations that are supposed to prevent genocides. Thats a tragedy but whats even more tragic is that someone in striped pants values form and stability over freedom, liberty and human dignity, and is determined to prevent Mr. Pompeo from calling genocide what it is. Regardless of what, if anything, can be done about the crime of the Burmese military, what to call what they did in Rohingya is not open to debate. It was clearly premeditated and coordinated and had the full approval of the military leaders who are the real power in Myanmar. Rohingyas were once considered citizens, as indeed they rightly are. They voted in national elections and elected their own representatives until 1982 when, following a military coup, a new constitution was imposed that stripped them of their fundamental rights. That discrimination was one of the reasons the United States first imposed sanctions on Myanmar, sanctions that were having an effect as things did seem to be liberalizing a bit. But nothing recedes like success. Events moved quickly. In 2010, Myanmar held its first election in 20 years, and the militarys Union Solidarity and Development Party claimed victory. That sounds like progress, but both eye and ear can be deceived. The generals were at the same time stepping up their savagery on the Rohingyas. They were forced out of the capital, mosques in their homeland were blocked. Over the opposition of the United Nations, all U.S. sanctions on Myanmar were lifted. The military leadership obviously interpreted this as a green light to step up persecution of the Rohingyas. The Trump administration must send a clear signal that this is not true; that the light is red. Sam Brownback, the U.S. Ambassador-at-large for Religious Freedom, said at the end of a visit to Myanmar, as Burma is now called, We have to start calling it what it is. This is religious cleansing. It would not be happening were these people not Muslim. If they were Buddhists, in all likelihood this would not be happening today. Hes dead right, and Secretary Pompeo should say so when he makes his speech. The United States must call genocide what it is. No euphemisms need apply.

What about remembering whether or not you already told someone that story? Its like one day you go from young to old! This stuff seems to happen more and more as you age. Why does it happen to some of us, and not to others? Ive wondered. I think it has to do with elevated homocysteine, at least in part. Emerging research about homocysteine connects it to neurofibrillary tangles, and those are associated with progressive memory disorders like Alzheimers. Did you know that NSAIDs and oral contraceptives are strong drug muggers of folate? If you deplete folate (vitamin B9), you block your methylation cycle, homocysteine builds up and memory becomes impaired. Perhaps maintaining brain function is related to declining levels of another B vitamin called methylcobalamin. Its also known as vitamin B12, a nutrient that is manufactured by your intestinal flora. Today, health food stores and online e-tailers offer various supplements that you can buy over-the-counter, but of course ask your doctor whats right for you. I couldnt possibly know whats right for each of you and this article reaches million of people, so again, find out if these simple nutritional fixes are ideal for you: Acetyl L-Carnitine The amino acid AcetylL-Carnitine crosses the blood-brain barrier more readily than regular plain L-Carnitine, and it helps the body make acetylcholine, the brains super neurotransmitter that is necessary for healthy mood and optimal cognitive function, as well as muscle health, a side benefit. Lions Mane A 2014 study concluded that Lions Mane promotes the growth of nerve cells in the brain. Lions mane increases NGF (Nerve Growth Factor), which then encourages the growth of new neurites. NGF encourages neurons to connect to each other, communicate better and simply put, this helps you learn faster and remember things better. Bacopa Monnieri Bacopa monnieri exerts a strong protective effect on the brain because it inhibits the production of acetylcholinesterase, an enzyme that breaks down acetylcholine, and acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that you want a lot of in your brain. Gotu Kola Gotu kola may help to increase the growth of neurons, promoting brain function, reducing mental fatigue, and supporting memory. Phosphatidylserine Phosphatidylserine begin to decline with age. It helps connect the wires upstairs and improve nerve impulse firing. Green Tea Its found in green tea, and EGCG can cross the blood-brain barrier. A 2012 study in mice found that supplemental EGCG promotes brain plasticity in the hippocampus area of the brain. Today should be an important day for you, particularly if youre now really thinking seriously about your memory for the first time. Im not a fan of the wait and see approach when it comes to your brain. Our life experiences and family relationships as well as friendships are important memories. Your job depends on your ability to remember the simplest tasks. If youd like to read the longer version of this article, just sign up for my newsletter at suzycohen.com and Ill email it to you.

The clinical trial, which began in February with one patient dosed, is being led by University of Florida Health researcher Barry J. Byrne, M.D., Ph.D., who is principal investigator. The Phase I/II trial known as IGNITE DMD is evaluating the safety, tolerability and effectiveness of an investigational gene therapy known as SGT-001 in boys between the ages of 4 and 17. Duchenne muscular dystrophy, or DMD, is a fatal genetic disorder that typically affects young boys. It causes progressive muscle degeneration and the buildup of fatty, fibrous tissue in place of muscle. DMD patients are typically wheelchair-bound as teenagers and most pass away by their late 20s. About one of every 3,500 boys worldwide has the disorder and there is no cure, according to the National Institutes of Health. The investigational therapy uses a virus, known as an adeno-associated virus vector (AAV), to deliver a missing protein into cells. It contains the genetic instructions for a modified but functional version of dystrophin, a crucial muscle cell protein missing in DMD patients. In preclinical testing, data suggested that the investigational therapy has the potential to slow down or stop the disease. For information about enrollment in the clinical trial or other clinical questions, contact the IGNITE DMD study team at SGT001inquiries@peds.ufl. edu. UF Health Shands Hospital nationally ranked in six specialties for 2018-19By Bill LevesqueUF HealthUniversity of Florida Health Shands Hospital ranks among the nations best in six specialties in the 2018-19 U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals survey released today, ranking highest in Florida in pulmonology and in neurology and neurosurgery. UF Health Shands ranked No. 2 overall among Florida hospitals. No other Florida hospital has more than six specialties ranked in the nations top 50. And for the fourth year in a row, UF Health Shands ranked in more adult and pediatric specialties than any other hospital in the state a total of 12, factoring in pediatric rankings released in June. UF Health Shands highest-ranked specialty nationally is pulmonology at 22nd. Also ranked are nephrology (27th), geriatrics (32nd), neurology and neurosurgery (32nd), diabetes and endocrinology (39th) and gastroenterology and GI surgery (46th). We take great pride in our UF Health Shands team and the unwavering skill and commitment they bring to patient care, and these rankings are a reflection of their dedication, said David R. Nelson, M.D., interim senior vice president for health affairs at UF and president of UF Health. Our patients expect the best from us. And we do everything we can to ensure we are deserving of the trust they place in UF Health. Four additional specialties are rated as high performing, meaning they ranked in the top 10 percent of the hospitals surveyed by U.S. News. Those are cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, orthopaedics and urology. The physicians, nurses and staff of a great hospital system recognize that the respect of patients is something that can never be taken for granted and must be continually renewed, said Ed Jimenez, CEO of UF Health Shands Hospital. We all work tirelessly to provide our patients with the highest standard of care. Were honored that U.S. News has again recognized our efforts. But we know the job of providing great health care begins anew tomorrow, one patient at a time. Pulmonology jumped 12 spots in the rankings, up from last years 34th. The division has a highly regarded lung transplant program and was recently designated as a member of the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundations Care Center Network. Medical centers in the network the division is one of 60 nationwide have the highest level of expertise and resources for the treatment of interstitial lung disease. We are very pleased by the new ranking of our division, said Borna Mehrad, M.D., a profes sor and chief of the UF College of Medicines division of pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine. This recognition is representative of the ongoing efforts of the University of Florida and UF Health Shands Hospital to provide the highest quality of care to patients with lung disease and critical illness in our region. U.S. News also evalu ated treatment involving common procedures and conditions at UF Health and rated five as high performing. Those are abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, colon cancer surgery, knee replacement, heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD. These rankings are a testament to the outstanding work and dedication of our faculty, staff and clinical care teams at UF Health in each of our core missions of clinical care, research and education, said Joseph A. Tyndall, M.D., M.P.H., FACEP, a professor and interim dean of the UF College of Medicine. We have an unstoppable commitment to excellence. The Best Hospitals rankings are based largely or entirely on objective measures such as risk-adjusted survival and readmission rates, patient volume, patient experience and safety, and quality of nursing, among several metrics, according to U.S. News. U.S. News evaluated about 4,500 medical centers nationwide in 25 specialties, procedures and conditions. Only 158 hospitals were ranked in at least one specialty.

PREP FOOTBALLYes Sirr: Rollins cleared to playBy ERIC JACKSON ejackson@lakecityreporter.comHes back. Columbias Sirr Rollins has won his age appeal, granting him another year of eligibility which allows him to play out his fourth and final season with the Tigers. The Florida High School Athletic Association sectional appeals committee made its official ruling Tuesday. The senior was told the good news via conference call. It feels really good, I missed it, Rollins said of being back. The atmosphere is fun. We just got to put this all together. We got to make plays and ball out. The FHSAAs decision was met with delight from teammates and coaches alike. Im definitely happy to hear that for that young man, and for the program, Columbia coach Brian Allen said. (Hes) a tremendous football player whos going to be with us for another season.That kid has an amazing story. Im just happy hell get to play his senior year with this 2019 class. Rollins was originally deemed ineligible due to his age. FHSAA states players who turn 19 before the September 1 cutoff date are not allowed to participate in interscholastic athletics during that school year. There was no telling if the 4.0 student, Rollins, would ever be able to suit up for his hometown Tigers again. Rollins, a preemie who turned 19 last week, submitted a strong appeal to the FHSAA. After weeks of waiting for a verdict, the hard-hitting defensive back steps right back into the fold. Rollins, who started every game at strong safety last year, now provides Columbia with added depth to an already experienced secondary. The unit includes Ahmad Williams, Brandon Scott, Kaden Murphy and Noah Ruise. Were bringing nothing but pressure, Rollins said. We got a couple packages that   we do. W ere just going to take control of the defense, hopefully will get Ethan (Umstead) back soon, and hey, well just ball out, do our thing on the field. Williams and Scott were projected starters in the defensive backfield, but with the return of Rollins, the Tigers look to somehow accommodate all three playmakers. Its great to have that situation, Allen said of the three potential starters. Theres going to have to be different packages. Packages that contain different areas, different starters. So now that this (appeal) has come to fruition, ERIC JACKSON/Lake City ReporterColumbia safety Sirr Rollins covers receiver Travis Myers during Tuesdays practice.

Happ allowed one soft single in seven shutout innings to win his third consecutive start since joining the New York Yankees, who beat the Tampa Bay Rays 4-1 on Tuesday night. Austin Romine hit a two-run homer, Aaron Hicks had an early RBI single and New York won for the 14th time in 17 home games against Tampa Bay over the past two seasons. Miguel Andujar and slumping Greg Bird contributed consec utive two-out doubles in the eighth to make it 4-1. Happ struck out four and walked four, throwing 71 of 106 pitches for strikes. The only hit he permitted was a flyball by C.J. Cron that fell in front of left fielder Brett Gardner in the fourth. Happ retired Carlos Gomez on a line drive to first base with two on to end the inning, and was never threatened after that.Rays get touted prospect as part of Archer tradeNEW YORK (AP) The Tampa Bay Rays have acquired minor league pitcher Shane Baz from Pittsburgh as the player to be named in the July 31 trade that sent Chris Archer to the Pirates. The 19-year-old Baz, selected 12th overall in the 2017 amateur draft, was 4-3 with a 3.97 ERA for Bristol in the rook ie-level Appalachian League this season. The righty had 54 strikeouts in 10 starts covering 45 1/3 innings.MLBAMERICAN LEAGUE East Division W L P ct GB Bost on 86 35 .711 New Y ork 75 44 .630 10 Tampa Ba y 60 59 .504 25 Tor onto 53 65 .449 31 Baltimore 36 84 .300 49 Cen tral Division W L P ct GB Cleveland 68 51 .571 Minnesota 55 63 .466 12 Detr oit 50 70 .417 18 Chicago 43 76 .361 25 Kansas C ity 36 82 .305 31 West D ivision W L P ct GB Houston 73 46 .613 Oakland 71 48 .597 2 Sea ttle 69 51 .575 4 Los A ngeles 60 60 .500 13 Te xas 53 68 .438 21 NATIONAL LEA GUE East Division W L P ct GB Atlan ta 67 51 .568 Philadelphia 65 53 .551 2 Washingt on 60 59 .504 7 New Y ork 50 67 .427 16 Miami 48 74 .393 21 Cen tral Division W L P ct GB Chicago 68 50 .576 Milw aukee 68 54 .557 2 St Louis 64 55 .538 4 Pittsbur gh 61 59 .508 8 Cincinna ti 52 68 .433 17 West D ivision W L P ct GB Ar izona 65 55 .542 Color ado 63 55 .534 1 Los A ngeles 64 56 .533 1 San F rancisco 60 60 .500 5 San Diego 48 73 .397 17 Monda ys Games N.Y.

Freddie Freeman hit his 20th homer to tie it in the sixth, and Dansby Swanson had a tiebreaking RBI single in the seventh. ACC PREVIEWClemson aims for 4th straight ACC title in dominating runBy AARON BEARDAssociated PressRALEIGH, N.C. Clemson coach Dabo Swinney isnt changing how the Tigers approach each season and theres no reason he should. The repetition is working. His program is the unquestioned Atlantic Coast Conference favorite again and has become a perennial national power. Everyone else in the ACC is looking up at the three-time reigning champions and trying to figure out a way to loosen their grip on the league. We start over every year, reinstall the program, reinstall the core values, the philosophy that we believe in, the why, Swinney said, and I just dont vary from that. The Tigers are the overwhelming favorite to win the ACC for a fourth straight season, which would make Clemson the first ACC team to win four straight since Florida States dominating romp through the 1990s. That would also make Clemson only the second power-conference team to win four straight league championship games. Over the past three years, the Tigers are 25-2 against league teams, with 18 wins by double-digit margins and the losses coming by a combined four points. They are returning seven offensive starters and eight on defense, including first-team all-ACC performers in offensive tackle Mitch Hyatt, defensive ends Clelin Ferrell and Christian Wilkins, and defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence. The biggest question around Clemson is whether quarterback Kelly Bryant keeps his job after guiding the Tigers to the College Football Playoff or if Swinney will switch to freshman Trevor Lawrence at some point during the year. As for the rest of the league, there continues to be an imbalance of power that has the Clemson-led Atlantic Division looking significantly stronger than the Coastal. But the Atlantic has plenty of change with Florida State bringing in new coach Willie Taggart, Louisville replacing former Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson and North Carolina State overhauling its defense. They all have the same goal. You have to beat Clemson, Louisville coach Bobby Petrino said. Theres no question about that.THE FAVORITESAtlantic: Clemson. There isnt another team in the country much less the division that can match what Clemson has accomplished outside of reigning national champion Alabama. Coastal: Miami. The Hurricanes were the first preseason division favorite to actually finish in first by the end of the year since Virginia Tech did it in 2011. That was also the last Coastal team to repeat as division winner, so Mark Richts Hurricanes are trying to hold onto their perch in a division that frequently features the unexpected and could see several teams convert experience into defensive improvement .TOP PLAYERSAJ Dillon, Boston College. Last years ACC rookie of the year is this seasons preseason player of the year after running for 1,569 yards and 14 touchdowns. Ryan Finley, North Carolina State. Finley returned to school for his final season after flirting with entering the NFL draft in the offseason. He completed 65 percent of his passes last year and has three experienced wideouts in 1,000-yard receiver Kelvin Harmon, Jakobi Meyers and Stephen Louis. Cam Akers, Florida State. The sophomore running back ran for 1,024 yards and seven touchdowns last season. Clemsons defensive line. Wilkins, Lawrence and Ferrell are all top-tier NFL draft prospects. That could make for some long Saturday afternoons for offensive lines in the Atlantic Division. TaQuon Marshall, Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets quarterback ran for 1,146 yards and 17 touchdowns to go with 10 touchdowns passing in Paul Johnsons run-heavy attack. Jaylen Smith, Louisville. The senior receiver is recovering from an emergency appendectomy, but is a preseason all-ACC pick who had 980 yards and seven touchdowns receiving in just 10 games last year.NEW FACESTaggart spent a season at Oregon before coming to Florida State to replace Jimbo Fisher after he left for Texas A&M. He inherits a team with 10 returning starters on offense and defense after a bumpy 7-6 season.LONGEVITYThree coaches have been in place at least a decade in the ACC. Clemsons Swinney took over during the 2008 season and is entering his 10th full season. Dukes David Cutcliffe and Georgia Techs Paul Johnson are in their 11th seasons after taking over their programs that same year.SHORTHANDED EARLYAt North Carolina, 13 players will sit out games after committing NCAA secondary violations by selling team-issued shoes. That list includes quarterback Chazz Surratt who was expected to compete for the starting job returning starter Malik Carney at defensive end and another projected starter there in Tomon Fox. The suspensions could cut into the Tar Heels depth in the opening month as they try to regroup from a three-win season, the first serious stumble under seventh-year coach Larry Fedora.MARQUEE OPENERSThe league has a couple of marquee matchups in Week 1, two against the Southeastern Conference. Louisville plays Alabama in Orlando on Sept. 1, while Miami plays LSU in Arlington, Texas the next day. And on Labor Day, Taggarts Seminoles face Virginia Tech in a conference matchup.AL DIAZ/Miami Herald/TNSClemson Tigers quarterback Kelly Bryant (2) sets up to pass in the sec ond quarter as the University of Miami Hurricanes play the Clemson Tigers in the ACC Championship Game at Bank of America Stadium on Dec. 2, 2017 in Charlotte, N.C.

LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER ADVICE & COMICS WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15, 2018 3B CIPHER DEAR ABBY: Im 22, and my boyfriend wants sex, but I absolutely do not. I dont feel sexual desire -not at all. Im asexual, but he refuses to believe me and insists my past relations have scarred me and that I need to get over it. When I was 17, I was raped by my ex-boyfriend, and I admit it traumatized me. But that isnt what my problem is. I honestly dont feel any need for sex. I never have. This has become a serious problem for us because my boyfriend keeps pushing for it. Last year, we had sex on his birthday, but I froze up. I couldnt make myself refuse -just as I didnt consent -but he doesnt seem to understand that. His birthday is coming up soon and he wants to have sex again, but like Ive said, I DONT. What am I supposed to do? I cant force myself to feel lust. It isnt there. Please help me. -NO DESIRE IN THE SOUTH DEAR NO DESIRE: Wheth er your lack of desire is related to the rape or you are naturally asexual is something no one can answer without a mental health professional seeing and evaluating you. However, I can unequivocally say this: If you dont want to have sex, pay attention to your feelings and dont do it. There has been some conjecture that because we live in such an oversexualized society that some individuals have become desensitized to it. However, because of your sexual history, it might benefit you to find a rape counseling center and talk to a counselor to ensure that the sexual assault didnt cause or contribute to this. DEAR AB BY: After dating a guy Ill call Charlie for two years, I broke up with him. It was the biggest mistake Ive ever made. I know I cant change anything, but now we have started talking again, and Charlie told me he had planned to propose to me the day I dumped him. We have been discussing starting over again together. Hes about to go across the country for college, and he asked me to move with him. Of course I said yes! It would be a perfect way to start fresh. When I asked Charlie when wed make us official, he said he has to focus on college first. I dont want to wait two to four years to begin our lives. Why would he want me to move with him and hold off being official if were going to be together in the end? And whats the difference between being his fiancee moving with him and being a friend moving with him? Im really upset, and I dont want to lose him again. -STARTING OVER IN THE EAST DEAR STARTING OVER: The difference between being a girlfriend who goes with him to college and being Charlies fiancee is night and day. What do you plan to do when you get there? Get a job? Go to college, too? Who is going to support you financially on this adventure? As a girlfriend, you will have far less status than if you were engaged. If he met someone else, you could be discarded like a gum wrapper along the highway of life. Please talk to your parents or some other adult relatives about this. As Charlie has made clear, he isnt ready for marriage -or even a committed relationship. You may not want to lose him, but the surest way to do that would be to do what you are planning.

6B WEDNESDA Y, AUGUST 15, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER COLLEGE FOOTBALLMaryland takes responsibility for mistakes in player death By DAVID GINSBURGAssociated PressCOLLEGE PARK, Md. The University of Maryland acknowledged Tuesday that the football player who collapsed during practice and subsequently died did not receive proper medical care and the school must accept legal and moral responsibility for the mistakes. Maryland also parted ways with strength and conditioning coach Rick Court, who resigned in the wake of the death of offensive lineman Jordan McNair. Athletic director Damon Evans acknowledged mistakes were made by the training staff in the treatment of McNair, who was hospitalized on May 29 after a team workout and died June 13. Head trainer Wes Robinson and Steve Nordwall, an assistant athletic director for training, were placed on administrative leave by Maryland last week. The attorney for the McNair family said a preliminary death certificate indicates the cause of death was heatstroke. Court posted his letter of resignation on Twitter on Tuesday. He wrote: I am stepping down to allow the team to heal and move forward. He had previously been placed on administrative leave. A person familiar with Courts settlement agreement told The Associated Press that he received a one-time payment of $315,000. He was in the first year of a two-year contract that ran through February 2020. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreement was not released by the school. Head coach DJ Durkin is also on administrative leave and his future is unclear. McNair family attorney Billy Murphy Jr. has said Durkin should be fired immediately. Evans said Tuesday the university has hired an external review team to take a look at this, but as additional information comes forward, we will do whats appropriate. Dr. Rod Walters, a former college athletic trainer, has been hired by Maryland to investigate the circumstances of McNairs death. A report is expected by Sept. 15, but the school has been provided preliminary findings and shared some of those in a news conference. We have learned that Jordan did not receive appropriate medical care, and mistakes were made by some of our athletic training personnel, Evans said. Walters found that the emergency response plan was not appropriately followed and that McNairs symptoms were not properly identified or treated. Evans said the training staff did not take McNairs temperature or immerse him in cold water, the suggested treatment for an individual overcome by heat. University President Wallace Loh said the visit to the McNair home was to apologize personally for the loss. They entrusted their son to us, and he did not return home, Loh said. The University accepts legal and moral responsibility for the mistakes that were made on that fateful day. ... They misdiagnosed the situation. Loh is adamant in his belief that the school will take steps to make sure this never happens again. I made a commitment to Jordans parents, he said. I want to make the same commitment to the parents of all of our student-athletes, and to our entire campus community: We will do everything within our power to ensure that no University of Maryland student-athlete is ever again put in a situation where his or her safety and life are at foreseeable risk. Later in the day, the law firm of Murphy, Falcon & Murphy, which represents the McNair family, wrote in a statement: While Marty and Tonya will never get another day with Jordan, Dr. Lohs words were meaningful to them and give them some comfort that he will put the University on the path to change the culture of the program so that no Terrapin family will have to endure the heartache and grief that they feel. ALGERINA PERNA/Baltimore Sun/TNSA viewing was held on June 20 at Wylie Funeral Home for the Maryland football player Jordan McNair. we now have a kid that can play a lot of different places. So those packages are now starting to go through the mindset of our defensive guys. Rollins has stayed conditioned throughout the spring and summer season. He says he regularly worked out with teammates as well as alone, running up hills near his home. Rollins admits hes still getting up to practice speed but the playmaker says hell be ready to take the field as early as Fridays preseason classic against IMG Academy in Bradenton. He hasnt missed a day of summer workouts, Allen said. Hes been right here with everybody participating as if it was his senior year. Hes done a really job with that. Rollins played a huge role in revitalizing the Tigers secondary last season as the unit was dealt with the tall task of replacing four starters from 2016. Columbia went back to the playoffs for a seventh-straight season in 2017, but an early exit loss to Lincoln in the quarterfinal round ended any hopes of a state title. The Tigers are back with their reliable thumper on the defense ready for another push in 2018. We them boys out here, he said. When anything is in our face, were just going to compete, and go out with a bang. Thats our mentality. ROLLINS Continued From 1BERIC JACKSON/Lake City ReporterColumbia safety Sirr Rollins runs back in coverage during Tuesdays practice. ing this his last season in Jacksonville. In my experience, Ive seen a lot, Marrone said. Things happen, and theyll take care of it. Marrone suspended Fowler and All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey for a week for violating team rules and conduct unbecoming a Jaguars football player. Neither one is traveling to Minnesota for two days of joint practices with the Vikings and a preseason game. The teams play Saturday. Ive spoken to both players and obviously those conversations are private, and thats really all Im really going to say about it, Marrone said. I know that everyone has to ask it but, again, those decisions are internal and it is team violations and those are private. Fowler was involved in several fights Sunday, including one after practice with Ngakoue in which they had to be separated repeatedly. No punches were thrown. Ramsey was one of several teammates in the middle of it. He shouted profanities at media members who captured the altercation on video and later took to Twitter to threaten reporters with war for releasing the video. Ramsey also defended his actions on Twitter, saying Im always gone take up for my teammates kus I know what type of men and players they are forreal! Love my dawgs! If you dont like it, oh well. Its just brothers being brothers, said Jaguars defensive tackle Abry Jones, a 320pound reason Fowler and Ngakoue couldnt get at each other. Thats all pretty much (what) I can equate it to. I mean, the same passion that you saw there is the same passion they have on Sunday. There was no problem. The only problem that we had is that it wasnt in a controlled environment. We like to control everything thats on this team so thats the only problem that we had. The suspension is the latest setback for Fowler, whose checkered past includes two arrests. Fowler was arrested last year for hitting a 55-year-old man, knocking off and stepping on his glasses, and then taking the mans grocery bag and tossing it in a lake. Fowler pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges of battery, criminal mischief and petty theft. The case was closed in March, with Fowler sentenced to a year of probation and 75 hours of community service. The NFL suspended him without pay for the season opener, a one-game penalty that will cost him $214,000. Fowler also was arrested in Miami Beach in 2016 and charged with misdemeanor counts of assault against a police officer and resisting arrest without violence. The charges were later dropped. Fowler, the third overall pick in the 2015 draft, is in the final year of his rookie contract and due to make $3.64 million. He has 14 sacks the last two seasons, including two in the AFC championship game.PHIL MASTURZO/Akron Beacon Journal/Ohio.comCleveland Browns quarterback DeShone Kizer is stripped of the ball by Jacksonville Jaguars Yannick Ngakoue during the first quarter on Nov. 19, 2017 at FirstEnrgy Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio.
