S ee 2 AA .A deals a deal, says cityBLANCHE UTILITIESBy CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comCiting a purported verbal agreement, the developer renovating the Blanche Hotel wants Lake City to pay for underground utilities work beyond its written contractual obligations in a 2017 deal which are already expected to cost more than half a million dollars. But the newly hired city manager says the written contract is the complete deal, and any handshake arrangements cant be honored unless theyre made formal. Under the terms of an agreement with Valdosta-based Integrity Development Partners, the city must bury power, phone, cable and fiber optic lines on Veterans Street. Former City Manager Wendell Johnson told IDP that the city would do the same for Columbia Avenue, said the companys marketing and operations director, Dennille Decker. It sounds like when they talked about doing it on Veterans, they would go ahead and do Columbia while everything was pulled up, Decker said. Johnson could not be reached for comment. The contract specifically prohibits verbal agreements, said City Manager Joe Helfenberger. Well do exactly what the contract requires, Helfenberger said. I dont want to do any more, any less. If IDP wants work done on Columbia Avenue, it will have to go before the City Council, he said. Im authorized to do what the contract allows, Helfenberger said. To do anything else, I need council authorization. IDP has had no communication with the city about the status of utilities on Columbia Avenue, the company wrote in a statement. IDP President Rhett Holmes and Construction Manager Dustin Merriman plan to meet with Helfenberger and other city staff on Aug. 24. Until that happens, IDP will not speculate on the intentions of the City in regards to the utilities on Columbia Ave., the statement reads. The renovation project can go on without underground utilities on Columbia Avenue, Decker said, but the above-ground lines would be unsightly. And its just old technology, she added. When storms come, it just prevents a lot of power disruption by having them underground. The utilities work outlined in the written contract is projected to cost around $529,000, city documents show. Helfenberger anticipates the final price tag will be a little less, but said he had to be conservative while planning the budget. The bulk of the cost is for labor from Florida Power and Light, Comcast and AT&T to install transformers and underground cables. The City Council voted last year to approve the agreement. In addition to the utilities work, the city also agreed to provide a $1 million grant and a $4.25 million unsecured loan for the company to renovate the historic site into a mixed-use commercial and residential building. Helfenberger is proposing $800,000 in multi-de partment budget cuts next fiscal year primarily to help pay for the Blanche work and the rehabilitation of City Hall, which might cost as much as $1 million. The cuts cover include delays to less pressing projects, a reduction of non-essential purchases and a cut in travel and conference expenses, Helfenberger said.

By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comSurveillance cameras caught a divorced man trespassing on his ex-wifes property with a gun and urinating on her new mans car, according to a Columbia County Sheriffs Office report. Nicholas James Albrecht, 31, of Louis Glen, was arrested Tuesday night on charges of stalking and aggravated stalking after deputies responded to Southwest Dante Terrace earlier that morning. Around 11:25 a.m. Tuesday, Albrechts ex-wife told deputies she had installed cameras at her home because she suspected he was trespassing, according to the report. Footage from Aug. 12 shows Albrecht walking around the property with a firearm in his hand, according to the report. Albrecht then urinated on a vehicle belonging to the womans current significant other, the report states. A deputy familiar with Albrecht confirmed it was him in the video, according to the report. Text messages show Albrecht questioning his ex-wife about her current relationship and apologiz ing for the creepy vibe, the report states. Later Tuesday night, deputies responded to Albrechts home and detained him for officer safety reasons, according to the report. enabled the school to do a complete makeover of the space. Now we have a state-of-the-art tech lab and an up to date and current library and media area, as well as interactive, movable furniture spaces for students and adults to meet as well as a tinker table and Lego wall and reading area for the younger children. The collaborative/ interactive learning center has all new technological equipment that will allow the school to have a set of dedicated laptop computers as well as desktop projectors and a smart television. Klenk said additional new equipment for the room is also in transit to the school. She said the school has several carts of additional laptops and iPads, but the new laptop computers will be specifically for the collaborative/ interactive learning center. The equipment and space is also utilized for the schools after school program with its middle school students. The new learning center opened on Monday, a day before school began, and was featured in a Lake CityColumbia County Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting ceremony Monday afternoon. We spent all summer frantically working with various vendors and commercial furniture specialists to have a design and deploy that vision in the library, Klenk said. Probably by the end of August well have all of the parts and pieces in place and on site. Klenk said she believes the collaborative/interactive learning center helps the school because it makes it easier for teachers to utilize the resources in their classrooms and the students have a learning space they can go to where systems are designed and setup to work fluidly with speed and accuracy. She said the new materials are supposed to be five times faster than the schools current technology. The collaborative/ interactive learning center is really a space that allows children to continue to learn how use educational resources correctly and responsibly and to interact with one another in small, large or whole groups, Klenk said. The room will allow the children to continue to put their hands on literally, paper. Klenk said she and school officials still feel that were not at a point in society where everything needs to be only electronic. While technology certainly has its place and its done a lot in the world today in how we communicate, we also know that our students can tend to spend a fair amount of time, in off hours, on technology for other reasons, she said. We want to use it responsibly and appropriately here. Students will get to pair the new technology with Google goggles the school previously received to help the children experience virtual tours. The new electronic equipment, combined with the traditional resource materials, is expected to benefit the students. There are somethings where theres just a benefit to have a resource that you can go to and put your hands on and its still relevant, Klenk said. We acquired the most recent version of World Book Encyclopedias and books on every single state in the country, so that kids can explore things. Sometimes technology is great, but it also can inhibit doing something you could do as well if you just had a book to read. 2A THURSDA Y, AUAU G USUS T 16, 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+.

Pretty stupid is more like it, Tate said. He said he was on his way to the shop after he received a notification his front door had been smashed in with a rock. Tate said hes a retired CCSO deputy who opened Black Cloud Tactical around three months ago. He said it hasnt deterred him from doing business at the location, especially since he said all firearms are locked away at the end of each day. It doesnt bother me at all, Tate said. I got faith in the sheriffs office were going to catch these guys. Earlier this month an adjacent retail store was the target of an unsuccessful retail theft attempt in which the perpetrator fled out the back door after pushing a mail cart of items through the store.

Delivered to your job site today. The News Service of FloridaThe Republican primary for governor may come down to an occasional Florida resident who is not even a registered voter in the state. But President Donald Trump, who owns and frequents the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, has had a huge impact in the Aug. 28 GOP primary. And the beneficiary has been U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, a three-term Republican congressman from Northeast Florida. Trump, who is intervening in a number of local and state races across the country, has been talking up DeSantis prospects as the next governor since last year. He issued an endorsement tweet on June 22. Ron is strong on Borders, tough on Crime & big on Cutting Taxes Loves our Military & our Vets, Trump tweeted, while also noting DeSantis Ivy League education credentials. On July 31, Trump made it personal, endorsing DeSantis, who turns 40 next month, at a political rally in Tampa before a raucous crowd of some 10,000 supporters. It provided a bright presidential spotlight for a once-obscure congressman in the states largest media market. Hes going to be an incredible governor, Trump said. DeSantis, a lawyer and U.S. Navy veteran who has carved out a record as one of the most conservative members of Floridas congressional delegation, has fully embraced Trumps support. He has melded that with frequent appearances on Fox News, where he has defended the president, as well Trumps efforts in Congress. On the morning of his first primary debate with Republican rival Adam Putnam in late June, DeSantis was in Washington, D.C., where as a member of the House Judiciary Committee, he led questioning of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein about the antiTrump bias in an investigation of the president. The next day, DeSantis told party activists gathered at a summit in Kissimmee that there are clear differences between himself and Putnam, whom he has labeled as a career politician. Putnam is finishing his second term as state agriculture commissioner and previously served in Congress and the Legislature. Do you want somebody who has been in politics their whole life and is more of a transactional Republican? Or do you want a conservative, Iraq veteran endorsed by President Donald Trump? DeSantis told the crowd. Thats a great contrast. You guys pick. Independent polls have shown the strategy has given DeSantis, who flirted with a U.S. Senate bid in 2016, the momentum in the primary, despite the fact that Putnam had raised $37 million for his campaign and political committee through Aug. 3, while DeSantis had raised $16 million. The trajectory was predicted in an April memo from Brad Herold, DeSantis campaign manager, noting that nearly nine of every 10 primary voters approved of Trump and that they were more likely to support a candidate that had his endorsement. Meaning, as we get closer to the primary election, more of these voters will naturally gravitate to Ron DeSantis as long as we have the resources to inform them of the presidents support, Herold wrote. DeSantis Washingtoncentric campaign has drawn harsh criticism from Putnam and his supporters, who charge the congressman has failed to tell voters what he would do as governor. In their final debate in Jacksonville, Putnam lik ened DeSantis campaign to the television show Seinfeld, which was famously a comedy about nothing. But, unlike Seinfeld, its not funny, Putnam said about DeSantis campaign. Floridians deserve better than to have a candidate that makes it all about themselves and not about the future of Florida. DeSantis supporters liken Putnams campaign to another long-time Florida politician, former Attorney General Bill McCollum, who lost to a political newcomer, Rick Scott, in the 2010 GOP gubernatorial primary. Using his personal wealth, Scott was able to align his successful campaign with the rise of tea party conservatives. I think he is this years Rick Scott in terms of his ability to articulate an outside message to Republicans who are tired of long-time, career politicians, former state Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, said before an Aug. 2 political rally for his son, U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz that also included DeSantis and Donald Trump Jr. The elder Gaetz said he would like to see more discussion about critical state issues, but he also said DeSantis was responding to a GOP electorate that is interested in national issues like immigration, the economy and the U.S. military. Thats what is on peoples minds, Gaetz said. In that sense, DeSantis is made for the moment because hes a candidate with a national under standing. But he certainly has the capacity and the experience to be the governor of Florida. Ronald Dion DeSantis was born Sept. 14, 1978 in Jacksonville. But he grew up in what he described as a blue-collar environment in Dunedin with his parents, Ronald and Karen, and a sister. DeSantis had an early brush with fame when his local baseball team made it to the Little League World Series in 1991. DeSantis performance as a student at Dunedin High School helped him win admission to Yale University, where he earned a bachelors degree in history. He was also the captain of the schools baseball team. He went on to earn a law degree from Harvard University in 2005 and joined the U.S. Navys Judge Advocate General Corps. As a military lawyer, DeSantis was assigned to duties at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility, which houses suspected terrorists. In 2007, he was assigned to a SEAL team that was deployed to Iraq, and he served as a legal adviser. He returned to the United States in 2008 and left active military service in 2010. In 2009, he married Casey Black, a Jacksonville television personality. The couple has two young children, with a son born in March and a daughter born in November 2016. DeSantis reported a net worth of $311,000 in 2017, with his largest asset being a $400,000 home in Ponte Vedra Beach, a seaside community in St. Johns County south of Jacksonville. DeSantis won election in 2012 to an open congressional seat, which after redistricting now includes Volusia and Flagler counties and portions of St. Johns and Lake counties. He was re-elected in 2014 and 2016. In Congress, DeSantis was one of the founding members of the Freedom Caucus, a hardline conservative faction that has pushed for reductions in federal spending, advocated for tougher immigration measures and called for the repeal of the Affordable Care Act. How DeSantis will apply those conservative principles to his role as governor is largely unknown because of the dearth of detailed policy statements from the candidate. He has repeatedly talked about appointing conservative constitutionalists as judges, noting three new state Supreme Court justices will be appointed in January. DeSantis said he wants to emphasize the teaching of the U.S. Constitution in Florida classrooms in a big way. He has also vowed to confront the issue of toxic algae in waterways in Southeast and Southwest Florida and to back the use of an electronic verification system to determine the immigration status of workers. But a recurring theme in all of DeSantis cam paign speeches has been his relationship with Trump. It was exemplified by his concluding remarks to party activists in Kissimmee in June. I have compiled a record of conservative leadership that is second to none, and I am endorsed by the president of the United States, Donald J. Trump, DeSantis said, before reading a portion of a December tweet where the president called him a brilliant young leader who would make a great governor.Trump support propels DeSantis in governors racePresident endorsed Navy vet in Tampa.

Tribune Media Co. has pulled out of its $3.9 billion merger with Sinclair Broadcast Group and instead plans to sue the media company for breach of contract. The breakup is a win for television news consumers who rely on free and independent reporting especially here in St. Louis because of the huge impact this deal would have had on local viewership. Sinclair is Americas largest owner of local television stations, with more than 190 stations in 89 U.S. markets, including KDNL (Channel 30) in St. Louis. The proposed acquisition would have extended Sinclairs reach to 72 percent of U.S. households, potentially adding the two local Tribuneowned stations KTVI (Channel 2) and KPLR (Channel 11) to the deal. Sinclair had agreed to divest stations in St. Louis and other markets to avoid one company from heavily controlling the airwaves, but the proposed divestiture was too problematic for federal regulators. A Tribune statement accuses Sinclair of balking at the sale of stations in required markets and proposing shady divestment structures and sales that might not have entailed giving up full control. For viewers, it could have meant more of the same propaganda-style news delivery that had earned Sinclair national derision. The Federal Communications Commission had blocked the merger and asked an administrative law judge to determine whether Sinclair misled the FCC or acted with a lack of candor. Lack of candor is Sinclairs middle name. It carefully scripted a commentary for all of its news presenters to read supporting the fake news assertions made by President Donald Trump against mainstream news media outlets. Local Sinclair stations have received orders to air must-run commentary segments echoing conservative and Trump administration talking points. Media critic Jay Rosen tweeted that Tribune is essentially accusing Sinclair of being a greedy, manipulative, lying, cheating company so brazen in its tactics that it couldnt get this deal through the most accommodating FCC in history with a President hungry for it to happen. It should not have come as a surprise to Tribune that a media company willing to manipulate the news would try to pull similar maneuvers in its financial dealings. Tribune has said it will seek compensation for all losses from the failed merger, an amount it estimates at more than $1 billion. The deal would have created a conservative television rival to Fox News, which may now see an opening to increase its local television holdings. In an age of rampant misinformation, including manipulation by Russia designed specifically to divide Americans and undermine our democracy, viewers must be able to trust the credibility of their local newscasts. This merger would have strayed far outside the bounds of public interest. St. Louis viewers and Tribune-owned stations have dodged an Orwellian overlord.I looked up Mission: Impossible on the web, and found out that theres also a business on YouTube they call Mission Im Possible. What a wonderful, positive play on words! Too bad that the great movie has such a negative title, which suggests that life will throw you some impossible adventures. It was thought to be impossible to break the sound barrier, break the 4-minute mile, or visit the moon, until it was done. Just because it hasnt been done, doesnt mean that it cant be done! Just because it hasnt been done by you, doesnt mean that you cant do it! Weve never found the absolute limits of human capabilities! Three years ago, a reader of my column phoned me to compliment me, and we talked for an hour about positive thinking ideas. I decided I had to meet this guy. He agreed, and I visited him, where he was a patient in a Lake City nursing home. He had a pizza delivered to us while we talked! That really got my attention. Don is a disabled veteran from the Korean War, and Vietnam. He served in the U.S. Navy, and saw action in the Far East. He told me about his wildest dream. To Don, its not a dream, its a plan. He planned to take a lump sum payment from his disability and use it to develop a cattle ranch, in this area that he loves so much. He was born and raised in Ellisville Florida, attended a one-room school, and grew up farming the land with his family. He even spent time in a seminar, training for the ministry. Don seems to know just about everyone in this area, and their stories. If you look up gregarious in the dictionary, his picture is probably there. In these last three years Ive known him, he purchased some 40 acres of rolling forested land, with 6 natural springs on it, and a pond. He hired good people to help him clear the land, and build structures and a corral, and put a road in. Don spends most of his time at the ranch, and manages and supervises it personally! He has collected a dozen black angus cows and a bull so far. Its a beautiful working ranch! Weve visited the ranch several times. This last week Don told me he had fallen a couple days ago, and struggled for a day or so to get up and get help. When they wanted to take him to a nursing home, Don insisted on going back to his home! Hes in his 70s, and can barely get out of bed and walk a couple of steps. The grass is growing tall on his ranch. So what did he do? He just bought a tractor to work his land with! I asked him, are you going to be able to get up on it, and drive it yourself? Don said, No problem: Im having a wheelchair ramp built at the ranch, so I can climb on it.

Tribune dumping Sinclair a win for viewersComing Friday: The Reporter recommendsTomorrow, the day before early voting begins, the Lake City Reporter will offer our recommendations for candidates in the August 28 primary. We will also weigh in on the proposed one-cent sales tax increase. This is not us telling you who to vote for. We are simply offering our opinion as noted at the top of this page in inch-tall capital letters which you can take for whatever you think its worth. If you find our observations of some worth, it may be because we have the luxury of studying the issues and office-seekers for a living. We base our recommendations on personal interactions with the candidates, including private interviews at our office; their performance on the stump over the course of the campaign season; our perceptions of their character and truthfulness; their campaign literature (sometimes it reveals more than youd think); and, in the case of incumbents, how well theyve done their job over the last four or more years. With the budget for the county commission (for example) at $150 million, it is paramount to keep a close eye on those who are managing our money, and from every possible angle. Hear what we have to say, compare it with your own impressions of these individuals, then make up your mind for yourself. This is a public service, pure and simple. Strong community newspapers lead the way. We take that responsibility seriously.

By BOB FERRANTEAssociated PressBrian Burns believes his drop in sack totals from his freshman year to 2017 was more about him than opponents. The Florida State defensive end had just 4.5 sacks a year after he had a breakout 9.5-sack debut season in 2016. But the 6-foot-5, 231pound pass rusher is almost incredulous when asked if he thought offensive lineman had figured out how to defend him. Figure me out? No, Burns said. It has everything to do with me. My freshman year I was going off pure athleticism doing what I could do. Coming into my sophomore year I was doing the same, and it didnt work. But over the course of the season, I matured and learned to grow up, and I learned theres other necessities thats a part of this game that I have to take as far as watching film, taking care of my body. Burns became a student of the game and learned not to lean on quickness off the edge. Burns earned more playing time in 2017 and as a result and his tackle totals jumped to 48 (from 23) and he accumulated 13.5 tackles for loss (up from 9.5).

Dryden has been ruled out for the season with a torn ACL. SENIOR SITDOWNBy JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE The heart and soul is gone. Corey Dryden is out for the season. Fort Whites running back suffered a torn ACL at the Valdosta State Camp a few weeks ago when offensive lineman JJ Calhoun rolled into the senior as they were both blocking. Doctors told Dryden last week that hell need surgery, which is scheduled for Aug. 27. Drydens recovery will take eight months. Im upset. Im really upset, Dryden said. Its just one of those things that you cant really help because of the way it happened. It was freak accident. My whole knee just went Boom! The torn ACL was just the worst of it for Dryden. He said he also has a few other injuries to his leg that doctors say will luckily heal on their own. Dryden also has a sprained ankle and was seen getting it stretched during Wednesdays practice. He needs the swelling to go down before he can even have the surgery. But the biggest injury for him is emotional, not physical. Hes torn up that he cant play his final season for the Indians. Its awful. Just too tough but I cant do anything about it. Ive just got to do my surgery and rehab as good as I can, Dryden said, Drydens injury counts as a double loss for the Indians because he was also slated to start at defensive end. Instead, JaQuan Robinson will shift from the offensive line to defensive end. But his absence will certainly hurt Dryden suffered torn ACL at Valdosta State Camp, ruled out for season. Ramsey rips NFL QBs, including Ryan, AllenJOSE CARLOS FAJARDO/Bay Area News GroupJacksonville Jaguars Jalen Ramsey (20) tackles San Francisco 49ers Kyle Juszczyk (44) out of bounds at the one-yard line during the first quarter of their NFL game at Levis Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. on Dec. 24, 2017. Associated PressJACKSONVILLE Jalen Ramsey is making headlines from his couch. Three days after being suspended for screaming obscenities at reporters, the Jacksonville Jaguars All-Pro cornerback is criticizing several NFL quarterbacks and praising a few. In an interview with GQ magazine Ramsey called Buffalo Bills rookie Josh Allen trash and said Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan was overrated and a product of Kyle Shanahans offensive system. Baltimores Joe Flacco, Indianapolis Andrew Luck and Eli Manning of the New York Giants also got less-than-stellar reviews. Ramsey called Pittsburghs Ben Roethlisberger decent at best. The interview is part of an interesting week for Ramsey, who was suspended for the week after he screamed at media members who were videotaping a post-practice altercation between defensive ends Dante Fowler and Yannick Ngakoue. Right now, I havent even put much thought into it, Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said before a Jags, Vikings convene for joint practicesBy DAVE CAMPBELLAssociated PressEAGAN, Minn. After the coaching staffs for Jacksonville and Minnesota met the night before, a group of 12 trusted players from both the Jaguars and Vikings convened before the two teams took the field for their first joint practice. The goal of the gatherings could be boiled down to this: No fighting. Please. We really dont want to end up being on TV like some of these other things, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. We just want to get out there and get some work done and try to get each of us better. Theres no reason for the Jaguars and Vikings, who only play each other in the regular season every fourth year, to bring any grudges to these dual individual drills and simulated game situations. Jaguars coach Doug Marrone spent three years as an assistant coach with the New Orleans Saints, when Zimmers son and current Vikings linebackers coach Adam Zimmer was also on staff. Jaguars assistant offensive line coach Tony Sparano Jr is the son of the late Vikings offensive line coach, who died suddenly of heart disease right before training camp I think theyre an excellent football team.

Clemson, LSU to play series in 2025, 2026Clemson and LSU have agreed to play a home-andhome football series in 2025 and 2026. The schools announced the games on Wednesday. The teams will meet at Clemsons Death Valley on Aug. 30, 2025 with a return trip to LSUs Death Valley on Sept. 5, 2026. The games will be the first played between the schools in the regular season.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because a formal announcement is not scheduled until Thursday afternoon. Benson has led the confer ence since 2012 and will be 67 years old when his contract expires. The Daily Advertiser of Lafayette first reported Bensons decision, which comes at a time of relative stability. The Sun Belt was in flux when he took over during widespread conference realignment. Benson has overseen additions of current members Appalachian State, Coastal Carolina, Georgia Southern, Georgia State and Texas State. He also administered the for mation of two, five-team divisions for football, and the Sun Belts inaugural conference title game to be played this year.HARRISBURG, Pa. PA tees up sports bets, not in time for NFL seasonSports betting is teed up in Pennsylvania, but it wont be up and running for the Sept. 6 start of the National Football League season. The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board approved a set of regulations Wednesday that agency officials say is sufficient to allow sports betting to start. However, none of the owners of Pennsylvanias 12 licensed casinos have applied for a license and the gaming board doesnt meet again until Sept. 12. Licensed casinos can pay $10 million to operate sports betting. The U.S. Supreme Court in May struck down a law that bars gambling on football, basketball, baseball and other sports in most states. Pennsylvania lawmakers pro spectively legalized sports bet ting last October and slapped a 34 percent tax rate on it. Associated PressIN BRIEFBIG 12 PREVIEW Heisman hopeful Grier wants to lead WVU to 1st Big 12 titleFILE Former Florida quarterback Will Grier scrambles up the field against East Carolina on Sept. 12, 2015 at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville. Grier transferred to West Virginia in 2016 after the NCAA suspended him for one calendar year after a positive test for a performance-enhancing substance. By STEPHEN HAWKINSAssociated PressMaybe Will Grier can do at West Virginia what Baker Mayfield did with Oklahoma before going to the NFL. If the senior quarterback can mimic the spectacular season had by Mayfield, the Mountaineers would have a couple of significant firsts. They have never won a Big 12 Conference title or had a Heisman Trophy winner. Oklahoma won its third Big 12 title in a row, and 11th overall, on the way to the College Football Playoff with the Heismanwinning quarterback who was the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft. While the Sooners are the preseason favorite again, there are also high expectations for Grier, the preseason Big 12 offensive player of the year who threw 34 touchdowns and 3,490 yards in his injury-shortened WVU debut. The Mountaineers even launched a Grier7Heisman.com web site during the summer. The Big 12 has never had back-to-back Heisman winners. I would never approve a campaign unless I felt like a player could handle it, coach Dana Holgorsen said. Hes ready for this. Hes prepared himself his whole life for this. ... Ive got no worries about him not understanding expectations and how to deal with expectations. The Mountaineers, who are 27-27 in conference games since joining the Big 12 seven years ago, were picked second in the preseason media poll, ahead of TCU, Texas and Oklahoma State. Were focused on winning games and being the best we can be, and I think Dana understands and trusts that I know that, said Grier, the former Florida quarterback who broke the middle finger on his throwing hand when diving for the end zone in the 11th game last season. What Im focused on is not the expectations, but the preparation. West Virginia also returns receiver David Sills, a former quarterback who had 60 catches for 980 yards and a nation-best 18 TDs last season. Mayfields successor at Oklahoma is Kyler Murray the ninth overall pick in the Major League Baseball draft this summer. The former Texas A&M transfer got a nearly $5 million bonus from the Oakland Athletics, who agreed to let the speedy outfielder play one more football season. Murray and the Sooners also have 1,000-yard rusher Rodney Anderson and 1,000-yard receiver Marquise Brown. This is going to be an interesting team, no question, Sooners coach Lincoln Riley said. Its got a chance to be maybe the most talented team that weve had in the now four years that we will have been at OU, but also probably our most inexperienced team as well.TOP PLAYERSGrier and Sills, West Virginias standout QB-WR combo. Ben Banogu, TCUs 6-foot-4, 249-pound defensive end and preseason Big 12 defensive player of the year who had 8 1/2 sacks and 16 1/2 tackles for loss last year. Oklahoma State running back Justice Hill, who led the Big 12 with 1,467 yards rushing as a sophomore last year after being the FBS freshman rushing leader with 1,142 yards. Kansas senior linebacker Joe Dineen Jr., who led the Big 12 with 11.4 tackles per game and all FBS players with 7.6 solo stops per game last year. His 25 tackles for loss were a single-season school record. Rodney Anderson, who ran for 1,161 yards and 13 TDs for the Sooners, and had five receiving TDs.

LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, AUGUST 16, 2018 3B CIPHER DEAR ABBY: Back in 2013, a co-worker, Jamie, and I fell in love. Both of us were married to other people, but everything felt perfect. It was a feeling I never had for anyone in my life before. Three years later, I lost my job. The day I was terminated, my wife found out I had been cheating, so I ended the affair. I have found full-time work and Im still married, but Im not in love with my wife like I am with Jamie. I have tried to stay in contact with her to prove to her that Im a better man, with little success. She told me I was her only love, but I broke her heart. She doesnt want to see me, even after several years of my trying to prove that I am the man she fell in love with. Her husband doesnt know anything. Shes afraid I may break it off again. Should I continue pur suing her or give up and move on? I thought I could handle it on my own, but I need some advice. -MISSING HER IN ONTARIO, CANADA DEAR MISSING HER: If you and Jamie really loved each other, you would no longer be married to your spouses. Having been dumped by you once, your former lover has a point. Give up and move on and you will save yourself, your wife, Jamie and her husband a lot of pain. DEAR AB BY: Im a pediatric RN at a large hospital. Sadly, I have seen too many young children die. I have learned to keep a professional distance, so that I can take care of the children and their families. I never give out my phone number, social media or email address, and I try not to let the parents ever see my struggle. But every once and a while, I cant help caring beyond professional. We just lost a beautiful little one who had spent a year and a half receiving care off and on in the hospital, and Im heartbroken. The family has asked for nurses and doctors to attend the funeral, and I really want to. But how do I explain why I go to some funerals and not others? -HEARTBROKEN ONCE AGAIN DEAR HEARTBROKEN: You dont have to explain. I cant imagine anyone actually counting the number of funerals/ memorials you attend and asking a question like that. However, if anyone should, say that you cant attend them all because the loss of these little angels takes such a heavy toll on your heart. Its the truth. DEAR AB BY: My late wife passed away two years ago. We always had a dog in our house. He died a year ago. I now have a new lady love in my life, but she doesnt want a pet in her house. Im dying to have another dog, and I dont know what to do. Please advise. -PETLESS IN TEXAS DEAR PETLESS: Eligible widowers are a prized commodity. If your idea of happiness is having a house dog, find yourself a lady who loves animals as you do. It shouldnt be difficult.

6B THURSDA Y, AUGUST 16, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER PRO FOOTBALLSparano returns to Minnesota weeks after dads deathBy MARK LONG Associated PressJACKSONVILLE Tony Sparano Jr. directed drill after drill Tuesday, clapping his hands and offering positive feedback to players. He smiled. He laughed. He joked with Jacksonvilles offensive linemen during breaks. His emotions might be totally different the rest of the week. The son of longtime NFL coach Tony Sparano will return to Minnesota a little more than three weeks after his fathers death and step onto the same practice fields his dad roamed the last three years. It wont be easy for the younger Sparano, an assistant offensive line coach with Jacksonville. Hes going through a tough time, said Jaguars coach Doug Marrone, whose team will hold two joint practices with the Vikings before a preseason game Saturday. It is a tough, tough time. It is not just him, individually. Its his family, his mom, and there is a lot going on. ... We will do whatever we have to do to make sure we are doing the right thing for his family. Marrone offered to let Sparano stay behind in Jacksonville, realizing how difficult the trip might be for him. But Sparano declined and opted to head north with his football family. You dont want to look back after things occur and have any type of regrets, Marrone said. I think living life like that in anything that you do is very difficult. I just want to make sure everything is covered, and whatever support he needs from me, I am there for him. The elder Sparano was set to begin another season as Vikings offensive line coach when he died unexpectedly July 22, just a few days before the start of training camp. He died of natural causes from arteriosclerotic heart disease, the Hennepin County Medical Examiners office said the following day. Sparano, 56, collapsed in the kitchen of his home in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, while he was getting ready to leave for church with his wife, Jeanette. A former head coach with Miami and Oakland, Sparano is survived by his wife; his two sons, Tony and Andrew; his daughter, Ryan Leigh; and four grandchildren. Sparano Jr., 31, missed the first week of Jaguars camp to be with his family. Sparano has declined interview requests since his return and wasnt expected to talk publicly in Minnesota. The joint practices surely would have been special for the Sparano family. Father and son coached together in 2011 at Miami (Senior was the head coach; Junior was an offensive quality control coach) and in 2012 with the New York Jets (Senior was the offensive coordinator; Junior was an intern). Its just a very, very difficult situation, Marrone said. I have been talking to him about everything. I am just trying to be the best person that I can be for him like the rest of the guys on the staff. I think it will be a very emotional time. I think his words, if you talk to him, would probably be better than me trying to say what he feels. But for me, myself, the staff, everybody, the organization, the players, we are obviously all there to support him. Sparano also knocked down four passes, forced three fumbles and recovered another fumble. With the exception of the sack totals, it wasnt a bad second year especially considering how he wrapped up 2017. Burns had two sacks and two forced fumbles in the loss at Clemson and 1.5 sacks in the win at Florida, both of which were November games. Thats why youve seen those flashes at the end of the season, because I was growing up, Burns said. He could continue to grow in new defensive coordinator Harlon Barnetts scheme, which has a four-man front and will feature more aggressive, attacking principles than what Charles Kelly implemented in prior years. While no team in the Atlantic Coast Conference has the caliber of defensive line that Clemson features, the Seminoles group should be able to frustrate opposing quarterbacks. Burns leads a group that includes sophomore end Joshua Kaindoh, senior tackle Demarcus Christmas and sophomore tackle Marvin Wilson. Burns said that Kellys defense was more conservative whereas Barnetts is more get in your face, something he thinks will be evident when the Seminoles open at home against Virginia Tech on Sept. 3. Its a defense that allows you to play rather than think, so were able to play fast, physical and aggressive, and everything is pin your ears back and go, Burns said. Were going to get after it, and its not really that hard to adjust to. Defensive ends coach Mark Snyder, who has been the head coach at Marshall and a defensive coordinator at Texas A&M, Ohio State and South Florida, said he compares Burns pass-rush capabilities to that of former Aggies star Myles Garrett, who was the No. 1 overall pick by the Cleveland Browns in 2017. His get-off and his bend reminds me of Myles Garrett, Snyder said. Thats the only guy Ive been around that can do what Brian can do rushing the quarterback. But Ive had other guys that were probably a little bit better against the run. Thats our challenge with him. Lets get better at that aspect of it. After learning through his second year at Florida State, there is a sense that Burns athleticism, knowledge and maturity blended with his talent could deliver a level of production thats similar to or beyond what he offered as a freshman. Hes a dog on the field, tailback Cam Akers said. He gives me trouble every day at practice, so I can imagine what hes going to do to other teams. Just a great person on and off the field. He does everything hes supposed to do. BURNS Continued From 1Bwant to come and practice against. This was Marrones idea, proposed to Zimmer shortly after the exhibition game schedule was finalized in April with the Jaguars playing the Vikings on Saturday. Zimmer acknowledged some hesitation, citing his preference to follow training camp routine, but he agreed to include his team in an exercise that has long been common around the league. The workouts at Minnesotas gleaming new facility will feature two teams that reached the conference championship games in January. I figured, OK, theyre a good team. Lets go and do it, Zimmer said. The purpose is to break up the monotony of two-a-days and providing extra opportunities for evaluation of bottom-of-the-roster candidates. The Vikings joined the Bengals for practices two years ago in Cincinnati where Zimmer used to be the defensive coordinator, a trip that conveniently allowed him to stay at his ranch retreat in rural Kentucky. After going against the same defense, the same schemes, the same players every day, at some point it gets a little old, Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen said. The excitement and, thus, the intensity have ramped up for these sessions on Wednesday and Thursday. Thats why the pre-practice conversations took place about keeping the competition healthy and respectful. Ive done it almost every year Ive been a head coach in this league so Ive seen great results from that if its done properly, Marrone said. The New York Jets and Washington Redskins had a multiplayer melee on Sunday spill into the crowd of fans The Jaguars had their own scuffle to sort out, with a scrap between defensive ends Dante Fowler and Yannick Ngakoue that prompted Marrone to keep Fowler and star cornerback Jalen Ramsey home from this trip Zimmer banished wide receiver Stefon Diggs and cornerback Xavier Rhodes from practice one day last week after their trashtalking antics angered him. The Vikings had some testy joint practices with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2003 and again in 2004, when pro wrestler Brock Lesnar made his ill-fated tryout with the Vikings as a defensive lineman and stirred up his share of shouting and shoving in scrimmages. So even the best of intentions can be cast aside in the heat of the moment when its, literally, as hot outside as itll be all season. Diggs and Thielen, for their part, were disappointed by Ramseys absence and the lost opportunity to test their skills against an All-Pro. The Vikings still faced plenty of challenges against the Jacksonville defense, which ranked second behind the Vikings last season in fewest yards and points allowed. We came here to work. We came here to get things done, Diggs said. So as far as anything extra, were not interested. The first session on Wednesday came and went without any drama, as both sides intended. This is a good team to go against, a good team to get us right and to see where we are, Jaguars linebacker Telvin Smith said afterward. Hopefully we push each other in the right way and well be seeing each other in the right game later on. PRACTICE Continued From 1B joint practice with the Vikings in Minnesota. For me, as a guy who had a cup of coffee and played in the league, I respect all the players who are out there. But I havent looked at the actual stuff. My focus right now is not on that. My focus right now is on our team getting ready to practice. Ramsey also predicted that Houstons Deshaun Watson and Philadelphias Carson Wentz would be NFL MVPs down the road. He said Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff was average to above average and called Kirk Cousins a winner. Ramsey weighed in on two dozen quarterbacks in all. The harshest comments were directed toward Ryan and Allen, the seventh overall draft pick from Wyoming. Buffalo and Jacksonville play in late November. I think Allen is trash, Ramsey said. I dont care what nobody say. Hes trash. And its gonna show too. Thats a stupid draft pick to me. We play them this year ... I hope hes their starting quarterback. Ramsey said Ryans MVP season in 2016 was due to Shanahan, who was the Falcons offensive coordinator at the time and is now the San Franciscos head coach. I think Matt Ryans overrated, Ramsey said. You cant tell me you win MVP two years ago, and then last year, you a complete bust, and you still got Julio Jones? Theres no way that should ever happen. I dont care. You know what that tells me? That tells me Shanahan left, went to San Francisco, got (Jimmy) Garoppolo, made Garoppolo this big thing. And now Garoppolo is a big name and now (Ryan) has this bad year? All right, well, was it really you, or was it your coach? He was doing what was asked of him and it was making him look really, really good. Fort White more offensively. Dryden was expected to carry the load this season following the graduation of leading rusher JacQuez Pelham. Now, the pressure belongs to Stanley Maxwell and Brayden Summers. Stanley is obviously going to get a lot more touches, Fort White coach Demetric Jackson said. Last year we had three, four backs. This year were down to two and a half with Stanley and Corey and then we put Deondre (Cray) in there some. But it gives Stanley an opportunity to get more touches and well see what he can do. Maxwell was actually second on the team last season with 498 yards on the ground, 25 more than Dryden. Summers was slated to play quarterback in the spring before Dylan Blair transferred from Columbia. The sophomore will now start in Fort Whites twoback offensive sets. Its a lot of pressure but weve got to be the next man up and step up and make plays, Summers said. But Corey was the heart. He played everywhere. Maxwell pointed to Drydens leadership as also a big loss for the team. If we needed that player to get the team going, he did it. He hyped everybody up, Maxwell said. Fort White head coach Demetric Jackson tried to look at the bright side following Wednesdays practice, as hard as it may be. Jackson says theyll miss Drydens toughness but did point out some positives to Summers increased role, which includes his ability to catch the ball better than any of the running backs on the roster. But Drydens ability to play both ways, as well as special teams, will be missed. You cant replicate his effort and his toughness. But there are several guys by committee that can do some of the things he does, Jackson said. Brayden is probably the closest to Corey because Brayden on the offensive side of the ball is pretty physical and he runs tough. Brayden is hard to bring down. The thing that Corey does is he runs lower and he hits the trap real quick. Brayden is a power back but he tries to use the stiff arm. The benefit though is that Brayden catches the ball a lot better than Corey. Brayden has real soft hands so thats a better dimension. Corey was a better blocker when it comes to pass protection so Brayden has to do a better job of that but hes young. The other thing with Corey is he could play all the special teams, offense and defense and never really get tired. Hed get tired but hed just keep going, going and going. We dont have anybody that can do that.
