After some confusion about what the resolution would accomplish, commissioners rejected it and asked for a stronger measure that would make a 2024 referendum automatic. The rejected resolution would have directed the county attorney in six years to bring a proposal before the board for a referendum asking if voters want to continue the sales tax. Future commissioners could then vote down the referendum and keep the tax or approve it and send it back to the voters. What happens when he brings it back to the board is for that board to decide, said County Attorney Joel Foreman. You cant tell them how to vote in six years. The board previously opted not to have Foreman prepare an ordinance to establish a sunset clause.

Thanks for reading.Aretha Franklin dies at 76The Associated PressAretha Franklin, the undisputed Queen of Soul who sang with matchless style on such classics as Think, I Say a Little Prayer and her signature song, Respect, and stood as a cultural icon around the globe, has died from pancreatic cancer. She was 76. Publicist Gwendolyn Quinn told The Associated Press through a family statement that Franklin died Thursday at 9:50 a.m. at her home in Detroit. A professional singer and pianist by her late teens, a superstar by her mid-20s, Franklin had long ago settled any arguments over who was the greatest popular vocalist of her time. Her gifts, natural and acquired, were a multi-octave mezzo-soprano, gospel passion and training worthy of a preachers daughter, taste sophisticated and eccentric, and the courage to channel private pain into liberating song. She recorded hundreds of tracks and had dozens of hits over the span of a half century, including 20 that reached No. 1 on the R&B charts. But her reputation was defined by an extraordinary run of top 10 smashes in the late 1960s, from the morning-after bliss of (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman, to the wised-up Chain of Fools to her unstoppable call for Respect. The music industry couldnt honor her enough. Franklin won 18 Grammy awards. In 1987, she became the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Fellow singers bowed to her eminence and political and civic leaders treated her as a peer. The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was a longtime friend, and she sang at the dedication of Kings memorial, in 2011. She performed at the inaugurations of Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, and at the funeral for civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks. Clinton gave Franklin the National Medal of Arts. President George W. Bush awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nations highest civilian honor, in 2005. Franklins best-known appearance with a president was in January 2009, when she sang My Country tis of Thee at Barack Obamas inauguration. She wore a gray felt hat with a huge, Swarovski rhinestone-bordered bow that became an Internet sensation and even had its own website. Franklin endured the exhausting grind of celebrity and personal troubles dating back to childhood. She was married from 1961 to 1969 to her manager, Ted White, and their battles are widely believed to have inspired her performances on several songs, including (Sweet Sweet Baby) Since Youve Been Gone, Think and her heartbreaking ballad of despair, Aint No Way. The mother of two sons by age 16 (she later had two more), she was often in turmoil as she struggled with her weight, family problems and financial predicaments. Her best known producer, Jerry Wexler, nicknamed her Our Lady of Mysterious Sorrows. Despite growing up in Detroit, and having Smokey Robinson as a childhood friend, Franklin never recorded for Motown Records; stints with Columbia and Arista were sandwiched around her prime years with Atlantic Records. But it was at Detroits New Bethel Baptist Church, where her father was pastor, that Franklin learned the gospel fundamentals that would make her a soul institution. Aretha Louise Franklin was born March 25, 1942, in Memphis, Tennessee. The Rev. C.L. Franklin soon moved his family to Buffalo, New York, then to Detroit. C.L. Franklin was among the most prominent Baptist ministers of his time. Music was the family business and performers from Sam Cooke to Lou Rawls were guests at the Franklin house. In the living room, young Aretha awed Robinson and other friends with her playing on the grand piano. Franklin was in her early teens when she began touring with her father, and she released a gospel album in 1956 through J-V-B Records. Four years later, she signed with Columbia Records producer John Hammond, who called Franklin the most exciting singer he had heard since a vocalist he promoted decades earlier, Billie Holiday. FF ranklin Queen of Soul was a legend for half a century.Foreman said after the meeting. The board has the power to roll back its taxing authority, but needs public approval to expand it. Commissioner Ron Williams said he wanted a resolution to automatically send the sales tax back to the voters in six years. Commission Chairman Tim Murphy said he wants the same. If youre saying in 2024, it automatically comes back to the ballot for continuance or deletion, Im not going to have a problem with that, Murphy said. This measure wouldnt do that, Foreman said, as resolutions dont bind the board. If you want to say definitely that its absolutely coming up, then we need to make an amendment to the ordinance, Foreman said. If you absolutely want it to go back to the voters, we can put that in there. We can make that amendment, but thats not what this says. Williams said he thought thats what they were voting on. I thought that was what I said all along two weeks ago, he said. Foreman responded. In fairness commissioner, all five of you said slightly different things, Foreman said. But what I was told most recently to do was a resolution. Foreman said he would work on an automatic review ordinance, but only if the sales tax passes first. Im not going to prepare something relevant to the ordinance unless it passes, Foreman said. Its futile, its a waste of taxpayer money for me to do that.

By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comSomethings rotten in the morgue, Columbia County officials say. A spike in autopsy referrals to the Jacksonville Medical Examiners Office is costing the county thousands more per month than usual, officials say. Theres something atypical going on, County Attorney Joel Foreman told the County Commission during a meeting Thursday. ... If its going to be a pattern, it is going to severely impact your budget. Whenever a doctor wont sign off on a cause of death, the county has to pay a medical examiner for an autopsy. The county typically spends about $20,000 per month on autopsies, County Manager Ben Scott said after the meeting. But in recent months, its been consistently around or above $30,000. In May alone, the bill was $33,000 for 11 examinations, Scott said. Thats not including transport costs, which are about $500 per patient, Foreman said. The county has determined the influx stems from people who died in a medical facility but were referred for an autopsy for reasons not yet clear, Scott said at the meeting. These are scenarios where someone goes to a medical facility with a terminal illness, he said. Theyre going there to die, thats everyone knows theyre gonna die there, thats what theyre there for. Scott declined to name any specific facility. County Commission Chairman Tim Murphy called for an agreement with adjacent counties dealing with expenses related to non-locals who die here. Weve got neighbors in Suwannee County, Hamilton County, that may chose to use hospice centers here for their last days, Murphy said. But were incurred for that cost. Commissioner Ron Williams questioned what might have changed to cause the increase in hospice autopsies. When my mom died, she was in the hospice, Williams said. She we didnt have to go through all this rigamarole. Its hard to say when the problem started, Scott said after the meeting, but the issue came to his attention last month. July was when we said, oh, wait a minute, were going to have a problem, Scott said. The county on Thursday had to reallocate $100,000 to cover autopsy fees over the budget for this fiscal year. The excess money was needed to fill the gap for July, August and September, Scott said. During the meeting, Foreman suggested the county look into whether private entities may be exploiting a loophole. This is disproportionately affecting our county, Foreman said. Several years ago, the state legislature took away the power of local sheriffs to waive autopsies, said Columbia County Sheriff Mark Hunter. The medical examiner in Jacksonville, Valerie Rao, is retiring at the end of the month. Raos replacement will likely command a higher salary than the roughly $219,000 she currently makes, Hunter said. Theyre looking at going way on up, he said. Its going to be trying here for a while. Murphy said the county might need to sit down with the legislature to get to the bottom of the issue, Murphy said. Its out of control, Murphy said. Foreman is investigating where the referrals are coming from. If were going to pay $30,000 to $40,000 a month for autopsies, thats going to become a huge expense, he said after the meeting. If its a legislative loophole, we maybe need to go to Tallahassee to work on that. The county cant afford expenses like that. This county cant afford expenses like that.Costs skyrocket as autopsy referrals spike More hospice patients ending up in medical examiners office.endorsement, but it aint enough to run the state, Putnam said, in a nod to Ron DeSantis. But the goal of his stop by and large was to spell out his platform and rally his supporters. He was surrounded by them for breakfast at The Landing, and the tone was lighthearted. When he spoke he got an occasional Amen from the crowd, drawing laughter as he said they were there at 8 a.m. for Adam Putnam and orange juice. Columbia County law enforcement leaders along with those from surrounding counties, school superintendents and public safety officials were among the local leaders there Thursday. Sheriff Mark Hunter introduced Putnam to the crowded dining room after a round of handshakes. Hunter explained why Putnam had his endorsement. This guy right here hes a fifth generation Floridian, Hunter said. He has been in this county countless times. And I can tell you what matters most to me is that as your sheriff and these other sheriffs from Bradford and Union County, along with almost 50 sheriffs in the state of Florida that are endorsing him, when we pick the phone up on your behalf and call that man, I have never had him not call me back, and that matters. Putnam spoke on the broad issues of his platform for roughly 15 minutes beginning with the importance of law enforcement. Everything begins and ends with public safety ... thats why Im honored to have their support, Putnam said. Ill take the endorsement of this bunch and AG Pam Bondi over any endorsement every day of the week because thats real Florida. Thats real Florida. He followed through with education and the need for reform measures, but was quick to say he and his family were all products of the public education system. Weve got to take care of our schools and our school teachers ... and you cant do that with a cookie cutter approach to education, Putnam said. You cant have some bureaucrat in Washington or Tallahassee thats trying to manage some of the biggest school districts in America ... the same way that youd treat Hamilton County, thats got two schools, Union County, thats got three. He led into his agenda for education as a tool for economic growth and what measures he wanted to implement. They largely centered on ramping up vocational and technical training programs in schools. And he said local community colleges were integral, saying there was a need to dispel the notion that a four-year degree was always the way to go. Folks, I believe thats flat wrong I believe its wrong that their forcing our kids into student loan debt for a degree they dont want may not even be able to use and they come home from university more broke and more liberal than they started, Putnam said. If were going to rebuild rural America, if were going to rebuild our small counties and our small towns in Florida if were going to rebuild the inner cities in Florida you got to rebuild the middle class. If you want to diversify the economy youve got to close the skills gap, and if were going to make sure that young people can stay in Florida and find good paying careers here lets give them the skills.

No to sales tax hikeWe recommend a No vote on the proposed 1-cent sales tax increase. The county has plenty of money, an ever-increasing revenue stream and healthy reserves. County officials need to manage the funds they have. When county officials first floated the idea of a 1-cent hike, they framed it as a means of relief for county landowners. Accept this small increase and we wont raise your property taxes to pay for the new jail, they said. (By statute, the extra cent is dedicated to road construction and maintenance. However, it will free up money from the general fund now being spent on roads in order to pay for the jail.) At first, landowners saw the sales tax as the lesser of the two evils, since the burden would not be on them alone, and embraced the idea. No longer. Should it be the case that road maintenance costs cant be fully covered while paying debt service on the jail, dont raise taxes. Make cuts. Thats what business owners and households alike do when they are pressed for cash. It should be no different for our elected representatives. As for all the recent talk of imposing an expiration date on this levy should it pass, well believe it when we see it. Thus far its nothing but talk, and were frankly tired of it. Things are looking up for the local economy and the last thing any government official should be thinking about is raising taxes of any kind. County officials rhetoric about giving landowners some relief now sounds more like a threat than an equitable gesture. Take heed, then. Should the sales hike go down to defeat, commissioners are still set on raising the millage rate as promised. We dont know whether they will or not, but we can promise you this: We will fight such a move. The County Commission must learn to live on what it earns. To behave otherwise is a betrayal to the basic principles of conservatism that every single one of those now in power claim to hold dear. A note on terminology Despite the confusing rhetoric from some, this is both a 1-cent and a 1 percent tax hike, as sales tax levies are made on the basis of a single dollar bill. However, you can view it as a 14 percent increase as well, as that is roughly the value, in terms of simple arithmetic, of the proposed jump from 7 to 8 cents. Hence we view the ballot language, which makes reference only to a 1 percent increase, as potentially misleading, and refer to the proposition instead as a 1-cent sales tax hike.State Rep., Dist 10: Marc VannMarc Vann is our choice in this contest. Vann is a successful Lake City businessman dead-set on keeping the American dream alive for generations to come. Working alongside his parents at their family-owned store molded his values and made him the man he is today. Vanns aims are our aims: to limit government overreach and remove obstacles from the path of people who want to succeed and are willing to work for it. Vann understands the practical implications of the complex policy matters he will confront as our next state representative. He is an honest man who will find a way to get the job done, much the way he did as a member of the Lake Shore Hospital Authority for nine years, during which time he saved Columbia County taxpayers something on the order of $1.5 million. He has served on many public boards and commissions in our area. He is a dedicated public servant and has a track record of standing up for taxpayers. He puts his own money where his mouth is, too, having invested $1 million last year in the revitalization of downtown Lake City. His companys purchase of an old bank that had sat vacant for years will help ensure the future of his family business as well as the city at large. Vann is the candidate who will serve District 10 best. He has earned local residents support.BOCC, Dist 2: Marc KazmierskiWe supported Marc Kazmierski in 2014, when his bid for this seat came up just seven votes short. He is the best choice once again. Kazmierski is a fiscal conservative who will look hard at any expenditure of taxpayer funds, and wont be afraid to say no if its questionable. He acknowledges the need for a new jail, but has questioned the overall cost of up to $28 million. He was also one of the first candidates to suggest the stark alternative offered by county officials either a sales tax hike or an increase in ad valorem taxes was a false choice. We should find a way to get by with neither, he says. Kazmierski, to his credit, will scrutinize every cent county officials want to spend. The Columbia County Commission basically the board of directors of a $150 million corporation would benefit from this mans insight and persistence.BOCC, Dist 4: Toby WittToby Witt is our pick in this race. Witt is hard-working and laser-focused on hanging on tight to the taxpayer dime. He is current on the issues and will be ready to get to work the day he is sworn in. Witt has gained particular notice in recent months by questioning the stark choice offered by county officials between the 1-cent sales tax hike on the August 28 ballot or a property tax increase. Witt says the county can fund the new jail and get our roads back in shape by doing neither, and no one in power has yet countered his claims to our satisfaction. He has studied the county budget and speaks fluently of its inner workings. He has done his homework and is ready for the job. A nasty whisper campaign meant to discredit Witt had some saying that because he plays in a country western band and enjoys a beer now and again, he is somehow unfit to hold office here. That is ridiculous. He was given a chance to explain during the recent televised political forum. Witt said he is a bachelor whose children are grown, and if he wants to have a beer with dinner at his favorite restaurant, its really not an issue. Well said. Witt brings a solid conservative background to the County Commission. He will guard the taxpayers dollars and serve the people well.School Board, Dist 1: Linard JohnsonLinard Johnson served admirably on the school board for three terms until he was unseated in 2014. Its time he return to his post. We believe Johnsons deep understanding of policy and budgetary matters make him the best choice among the current three contenders seeking the office. Johnson is more than a retired civics teacher, though. He is also an entrepreneur, with a large portfolio of real estate holdings across the county. That means he also sees matters that will come across his desk from the perspective of a businessman one who ponies up a pretty penny to the tax collector every fall. Johnsons entrepreneurship has raised other questions as well. In an interview with this newspaper in July, he was candid about the days and nights he spends outside District 1 working to renovate a large farmhouse he owns near Fort White. While much of Johnsons time is spent there, he says his home is still in District 1, roughly 25 miles to the north. Legal residency under state election law is a fuzzy concept at best. Johnson receives a homestead exemption on his District 1 home and that carries a great deal of weight in the eyes of the law. We have every expectation that Johnsons current living arrangement satisfies all legal requirements of the state. More importantly, we know Johnsons past record of service on the School Board. We have no doubt he will devote himself in full to the task at hand and serve his district as well as the county at large with distinction.School Board, Dist 5: Hunter PeelerWe see Hunter Peeler as the best choice among the three contenders for School Board District 5. Peeler, 19, may lack the life experience of the other two contenders, but he more than makes up for it elsewher e, with his zeal, native intelligence and downright dogged determination to perform at the highest possible level, whatever the job. Peeler doesnt yet know everything he needs to about running a school district. This is to be expected. Being a school board member isnt like joining a city council or county commission. School districts speak their own language, and immersion therapy is the only real way to learn it. We have been watching Peeler closely since he announced his campaign, frankly expecting to see some sign of immaturity or youth. We have seen none. During a chaotic campaign season, with blistering, often overheated rhetoric from supporters and detractors alike, Peeler has maintained a cool head. He is every bit as focused on the task ahead as any candidate we have seen in local politics. Hunter Peeler is young, but he has accomplished more in his 19 years than some ever do. He is a business owner who wants to serve the educational needs of local students as well as the taxpaying public. He has already shown himself to be a leader, and he has our support in the District 5 race.City Council, Dist 10: Vanessa GeorgeVanessa George is the only real hope residents of District 10 have if they want to see real improvement in their neighborhoods. The people of this district arent asking for much. All they want is for the roads to be made passable and that some of the snake-infested, swamp-water ditches be filled in at least those near schools. That hasnt happened under the current councilman, now in control for some 20 years, though in recent months some small signs of progress have been visible. It is far too little, too late. Add to that the taint of electoral scandal, and change is clearly in order in District 10. George is current on the issues facing the city and makes clear where she stands. She speaks with passion for the district and her hometown. She is determined to help District 10. This ones not a close call. The residents of District 10 are desperate for someone who will actually stand up for them at City Hall. Their time is now. Vanessa George is their only hope on this years ballot.City Council, Dist 14: Chris GreeneChris Greene is our pick for the vacant Lake City Council District 14 seat. Greene is a hidden treasure on the local political scene. A Lake City native and Air Force veteran, he works as a federal firefighter at Moody Air Force Base in Valdosta and hasnt been as highly visible here in recent years as some contenders. He has shown himself to be the real deal. Greene already has a better grasp of city budgetary matters than some sitting council members. In addition, he has the drive to put that knowledge to use in making Lake City more affordable to residents and business owners alike. On the stump, he notes that Lake Citys millage rate is a full point higher than it was in 2010 the depth of the Great Recession though property values are about the same. The message? Cut the budget and give residents some relief. He also tells the story of his daughter, who said she may not be coming back to Lake City after college due to the lack of careertrack jobs available in her hometown. Greene does not make rash promises, but does vow to study the problem and mount an intelligent effort to help grow the local economy with more than just fast food franchises. Greene will be a stabilizing force on a sometimes erratic, unfocused council. District 14 voters would do well to have him represent them.

This is not us telling you who or what to vote for. We are simply offering our opinion, 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; and, in the case of incumbents, how well theyve done their job over the last four or more years. All endorsements are unanimous selections by the editorial board. Had both members not been able to agree, no endorsement for that race would have resulted.

One account I read said Evangelical Christians are heartened at the news. As a Christian whose biblical beliefs, but not my political persuasion, place me squarely in the Evangelical camp, I confess I am not all that heartened at the news. I do not need the protection of his task force; I need him to enforce the laws that already exist, namely the First Amendment. The first freedom of the First Amendment guarantees everyone the right to freely exercise their faith, and that right enshrined in the First Amendment is the cornerstone for the remaining nine amendments in the Bill of Rights. They serve as the foundation for the rule of law in this nation and the inalienable rights spoken of in our Declaration of Independence. Sessions says the purpose of the task force is to eliminate the abuse of the Johnson Amendment to threaten the tax-exempt status of religious organizations during election campaigns. The wording in Title 26, section 501(c) (3), only jeopardizes those religious organizations that endorse or contribute to the support of a political candidate. Nothing in the Johnson Amendment forbids any pastor from speaking out on those issues of scriptural concern that overlap into the political arena, such as the attack on the sanctity and dignity of human life by abortion and euthanasia, and the immorality of the same-sex lifestyle. As long as pastors speak out on issues and not candidates they have nothing to fear from the Johnson Amendment. Besides, I give my tithes and offerings to support the spread of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, if my church decided to become a de facto political action committee it needs to be more concerned about losing my financial support than its tax exemption. Our government already ignores enforcing the Johnson Amendment when it wants to. Planned Parenthood is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that is also funded in part by our federal government. It has never been cited that I am aware though it contributes regularly to and endorses political candidates. So far in 2018 Planned Parenthood has contributed a total of $300,453 to House and Senate The Religious Liberty Task ForceCHRISTIAN CONCEPTS Gary Kinggarybkingcc@gmail.comAs long as pastors speak out on issues and not candidates they have nothing to fear from the Johnson Amendment. The parable of the Prodigal Son is perhaps one of the most familiar stories in the Bible. It has long been the focus of many Sunday School lessons and sermons about how Gods forgiveness is waiting for a person who has strayed from their faith, if only they will return to Him. This message is without a doubt THE message of the Bible. God absolutely wants those far from Him to know that He loves them and longs for them to return. And yet, in context, there was another message that Jesus very much wanted to convey. It seems that a group who considered themselves very close to God had a problem with how Jesus was spending His time: Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him. And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying This man received sinners and eats with them. (Luke 15:1-2) The Pharisees and scribes were the religious leaders of the day, tending to all things spiritual. They knew which prayer to say when, which i to dot and t to cross. They knew the answers to the hard questions about what was right or wrong, and they worked hard to get it right. So, it is easy to understand their frustration when Jesus shows up and spends most of his time hanging out with sinners. As He often did, Jesus answered their complaint with a series of parables. This time about a lost sheep, a lost coin and a lost son. With the lost sheep and lost coin, He points out the desire to celebrate we feel over finding something that was lost. We can all relate to the elation of finally finding lost keys, lost wallet or anything necessary and valuable after an exhaustive search. In fact, the sheep and the coin had this in common: both were found by someone diligently searching. But then we come to the prodigal. Take a closer look at the story in Luke 15:11-24. Something was lost, something is found, and then a celebration follows. Much like the sheep and coin, except the prodigal found his way back to the Father. We often miss that because the music is loud and the feast is joyous. But then we hear a Lessons from the story of the Prodigal SonAs He often did, Jesus answered their complaint with a series of parables.HEART MATTERS Counting the costLuke 14:25-35 There are times in life when we just jump into something before we really count the cost of what we are doing. Jesus had a very large crowd following him when he turned to the crowds and told them to count the cost of what it means to follow him. Please read Luke 14:2535 as we count the cost of following Jesus. As we read this passage of Scripture Jesus makes the crowds aware of three main areas where they should stop long enough to count the cost before making a commitment to follow him. He wants you and I to do the same today as well. Jesus teaches us to count the cost of our relationships, to count the cost of being his disciple, both publicly and privately, and to make a difference in our family and community. First Jesus calls for us to make him the God of our lives. This means that our relationship with him is the most important relationship in the world. He tells the crowd that you must love me more than you love yourself or everyone else in between. Do we really love Jesus this way? To love Jesus this way is to keep the first commandment that the Lord has given us that we should have no other gods before him. When our relationship is right with Jesus then our other relationship will be right with other people including how we look at ourselves. Secondly, we must count the cost of being his disciple. The way we give an invitation at the end of a sermon we really dont encourage people to count the cost of being a disciple of Jesus. When a person prays to Jesus to save them from their sins they also are surrendering control of their lives to him. From that moment on when a person calls on Jesus to save them from their sins they are no longer a slave to sin but a slave to Jesus Christ. As his slave we are to be slaves to righteousness. In order to grow in righteousness as his disciple, there must be ongoing sanctification in our lives to make us holy as Jesus himself is holy. In order for this to happen we must die to ourselves daily and live for Jesus depending on the Holy Spirit to live his life through us. As we depend on Jesus each day we must continuously look to him, listen for him to give us direction. As we follow Jesus day by day we will be used by him to make a difference in our community. A lot of our local civic clubs have men and women who are disciples of Jesus working together for the good of our community but you do not have to belong to one of these to make a difference in the life of others. As Jesus disciple you can make a difference in the life of others through your obedience to him.

Those who oppose the formation of Sessions task force claim the war on Christians does not exist, but there is clearly a war of ideologies. Otherwise, why are there those who, while claiming to be tolerant, are trying to make Christians bake them a cake, send them flowers, or take their picture. It is written, It is better to take refuge in the Lord, than to trust in man, Psalm 118:8. Ultimately believers must trust God who is our refuge for protection, because political posturing protects no one. KINGContinued From 7Acomplaint. The older brother who has stayed at home and taken care of the fields is not celebrating that his wayward brother has come home. After all, he has been the one working hard to take care of everything while he was off having fun. Sound familiar? The Pharisees and scribes sound a lot like older brothers. Many church folks may relate to how the older brother and the religious leaders felt, the same resentment over sacrificing to do the right thing while others seem to be having such fun doing the wrong things. What changes everything here is the view of the Father about those right things. Is doing the right thing checking off the list or checking with the Fathers heart? Yes, the younger brother wasted his portion, but the portion that was left consumed all the older brothers time and energy. He was taking care of his inheritance, when perhaps his father wished he would go look for his brother. Jesus message to the religious leaders was subtle but clear. Our inheritance from our Father is eternal life. It is a gift and cannot be earned by working hard to do everything right. Gods heart is that we value the gift enough to search for those far away from Him and celebrate when they are found. Because every heart really does matter.

By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comIn an unexpected turn of events last week, Columbia went from possibly not having a preseason classic to scheduling one of the countrys best programs. It happened quickly and without hesitation, Columbia accepted an offer to play IMG Academy. On Friday, the Tigers travel to Bradenton for the anticipated exhibition match versus national powerhouse IMG Academy. Many teams wouldve shied away from facing an elite group that has won its last 37 straight games, but not the Tigers. Theyre welcoming the competition, ready to see where they stand amongst top-tier talent. Its Columbia, we made that way, quarterback Jordan Smith said. Growing up together, tough, playing in the backyard, we just born to do this. Columbia strong. Columbia surely will be tested in its first contest of the season. IMG Academy, a nationally-ranked team, features 11 players rated four stars or better in the 2019 class alone. The underdog Tigers hope to come out with a confidence-boosting victory, one that would certainly catapult Lake City Reporter SPORTS Friday, August 17, 2018 ww w.lakecityreporter.com Section B Story ideas?

I thought we got a lot done, Taggart said Thursday. Im really impressed with the way the guys competed in practice. Plays that theyre not familiar with, we got better. It was just as if we were practicing at Florida State. What Taggart wasnt ready to announce, though, is his starting quarterback. Redshirt junior Deondre Francois, sophomore James Blackman and redshirt freshman Bailey Hockman are competing for the job. All three have been taking snaps with the first team during camp. Taggart said hes looking for playmaking and leadership from whoever wins the job. Part of it is getting the ball to the right guys, some of it is just building them up and encouraging them to do the things they are supposed to and being that leader of the entire football team, Taggart said. But a lot of it comes down to playmaking. As a quarterback you can make a receiver better by putting the ball on him, the coach added. Its also leading our offense when things arent going well. And dont turn the ball over. Thats a big way of helping your teammates get better.

PREP FOOTBALLLOCKED INERIC JACKSON/Lake City ReporterColumbia quarterback Jordan Smith throws a pass during practice on Aug. 1 By DAVE CAMPBELLAssociated PressEAGAN, Minn. Jacksonville and Minnesota each fell one game short of the Super Bowl last season, and they had another important trait in common, too. Dominant defense. The Vikings finished first in the NFL last season with both the fewest yards and points allowed, and that didnt go unnoticed by the Jaguars. They were second and, naturally, not pleased about it. These joint practices the teams conducted in Minnesota this week naturally gave Jacksonvilles proud group another opportunity to show off those skills, even if there was no obvious way to compare. Jaguars coach Doug Marrone even needled his players a little before the trip as another way to bring out their best. As the second day of sessions at the sparkling, sprawling Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center in suburban Minneapolis wrapped up after a thunderstorm interruption on Thursday afternoon, the takeaway was clear from both sides. That other team is good. The time was well spent. I would consider it again. I think it depends on the team and things like that. Both teams were very respectful of one another, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said after practice. There was really no fighting or nothing FSU continued on 6BTeams impress one another as joint sessions wrap up.LOUIE MASON/Special to the ReporterOver 100 cars showed up for the 2018 Borderline Brawl at All-Tech Raceway last weekend.

Trenton is in the midst of a bit of a rebuild under new head coach Ben Jacqmein, whose team was moved to Class 4A from 1A prior to last year due to a recruiting violation.

Tommy Pham helped the Rays jump on Masahiro Tanaka (9-3) with an RBI double during a two-run first inning, and Blake Snell (14-5) and the bullpen took over from there. Snell made his third start since a DL stint for left shoulder fatigue and struck out six over five innings of two-hit ball.Urena suspended 6 games for hitting AcunaNEW YORK (AP) Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Urena has been suspended six games and fined an undisclosed amount for intentionally hitting Ronald Acuna Jr. of the Atlanta Braves with a pitch. Major League Baseball announced the penalties Thursday, a day after Urena hit Acuna on the left arm with his first pitch in the Marlins 5-2 loss in Atlanta. The 20-year-old Acuna went into the game having homered in five straight games, including four homers in the three games against Miami three of them leading off.
DEAR ABBY: Im dating my grammar school and high school sweetheart, Gary. Weve known each other since I was 6. (Im 33 now.) In high school we dated for nine months and were in love, but he told lies to my dad, so Dad ordered him to stay away. Now, 16 years later, after being only friends all this time, we finally both became single and got back together. Gary is and always has been the love of my life, as I am his. He would do anything for me. He says he wants to marry me and have kids, and hes never said that to any other woman. Since we broke up at 16, Gary has done some bad things (drugs, prison). Because of it, my dad hates him. Dad was finally getting used to Gary being back in my life until a few months ago, when Gary crashed my car after relapsing. Gary is getting me a new car and trying to get my dad to like him, but Dad is stubborn. I know hes just worried about me. I want to bring Gary to my parents to visit because enough time has gone by since the accident. Is there any way to get my dad used to him? -TORN IN NEW JERSEY DEAR TORN: I think the chances of your father getting used to his beloved daughter being married to a convicted felon and drug user who cant quite kick the habit are somewhere between a snowflake and hell. Gary may have been the love of your life since childhood, but if you plan to marry him, its important you get a glimpse of what you may be in for. There are self-help groups for the friends and family of addicts. Join one of them. (Visit Nar-Anon.org to find the nearest meeting.) If you do, you will meet other individuals who are involved with people who have a drug addiction and learn about the challenges that will face both of you. DEAR ABBY: A longtime friend of mine, Jenny, and I reunited after years of not speaking. Our pregnancies brought us back together, and since the births of our children we have had playdates, shared baby stories, advice, etc. My problem is, Jenny tries to pass down stained, outof-season clothes from her child to mine. (She gets free handouts from organizations that help moms and families who arent financially well off.) She and her childs father drive brand-new cars with hefty car payments, and they are paying a big mortgage -all the while collecting assistance. It bothers me because, while we struggle, my family doesnt use assistance. We feel it should be used only for those who really need it. Am I silly for letting something like this get to me? I find myself making excuses to cancel playdates and avoid her. -MAKING MY OWN WAY IN VIRGINIA DEAR MAKING: Your problem isnt the baby clothes. Its that you disapprove of Jennys values. While you have some things in common, you also have major differences. Among them, your choice to work for what you get and her willingness to game the system. Thats a big difference, and youre not being silly. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are proud parents of our first child, a girl. Despite his excitement and pride, her arrival has caused his childhood sexual abuse by his stepfather to resurface with more detail than he previously remembered. It has reached the point that if he isnt thinking about suicide, hes grilling me for reasons why I love him, which he doesnt believe. He recently told me hes afraid of holding our 4-month-old daughter or changing her diaper in case he does something abusive by mistake. Besides constant reassurances and encouragement, how can I help the man I love when he refuses the outside help denied to him as a child? -WORRIED WIFE IN MISSISSIPPI DEAR WORRIED WIFE: It is extremely important that your husband get professional help NOW! What his stepfather did was not his fault. He may think hes unlovable because he somehow blames himself for what happened to him. There are at least nine rape treatment centers throughout the state of Mississippi. Your husband needs to go to one before he does something to hurt himself. If he wont do it for himself, then he should do it for the sake of his daughter, who needs him, and his wife, who adores him. DEAR ABBY: I am a 20-year-old female college student who often comes home to sleep because its close to my job, and its my primary residence during the summer and holidays. I love my family very much, but Im having a problem because my mother insists on sleeping in my bed with me while Im there. My stepdad snores incredibly loudly, and he refuses to get help. Mom often cant sleep because of it. Sometimes he sleeps on the couch and shell get a reprieve. However, several times a week, Mom will sleep in my bed. Not only does this disrupt my sleep, but I would love to have my privacy back. She has tried earplugs, but they help only a little bit. How can I get my personal space back? I would value some advice. -OVER IT IN BUFFALO DEAR OVER IT: Because your stepdads snoring cant be heard from the couch, on nights when your mother needs to sleep in your bed, why dont YOU take the couch? That way all of you can get a good nights rest. However, until you are independent and able to make other living arrangements, you may have to sacrifice your need for privacy in the interest of practicality. P.S. Individuals who have a serious snoring problem should let their doctor know, because it could be a symptom of a life-threatening medical condition called sleep apnea. Please tell your mother that if her husbands snoring is irregular and he holds his breath between snores, it shouldnt be ignored. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Participate in events that are geared toward networking. Mixing business with pleasure will help you build good relationships with people who can help you further your goals. Dont pretend to know more than you do. Ask questions; show interest. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Change only whats feasible. Refuse to let anyone convince you to attempt the impossible. Stay calm and avoid arguments. Put your energy into dealing with youngsters, seniors and individuals you can teach or learn from. Maintain balance and integrity. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Love conquers all. Project a friendly demeanor and keep an open mind. Use your charm and show your desire to be a team player. Offer innovative ideas and engage in activities geared toward self-improvement and better health. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Try something different. Get involved in a cultural event or spend time with someone who can show you that you have choices if you are willing to make a couple of changes in your life. Dont abuse your health. Get fit. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Emotions will spin out of control if you disagree with someone you live or work with. Be willing to listen to all sides of an argument before you share your opinion. Focus on personal change. Time alone will do you good. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Visit places youve never been or somewhere you go for inspiration. You will get a boost of creative energy that will help you bring about positive change. Greater stability can be yours if you make the right choices. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Take better care of your health and physical appearance. Now is not the time to let yourself go; its the time to update your look and improve your diet and fitness regimen. Dont let criticism get you down. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Emotional situations will escalate quickly. Dont make a fuss or get in the middle of someone elses problem. Concentrate on what you can produce, and use your imagination to come up with new ideas. Moderation is encouraged. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Youve got the right idea, so follow through with your plans. Someone will pitch in and help, but be careful not to let anyone take credit for your creation. Only share whats necessary to impede someone from taking advantage of you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A professional opportunity or a chance to raise your profile or gain status looks promising. Make the changes that will lead to greater happiness and security. Someone older will offer something of value. Think big, but live within your means. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): No one knows better than you when enough is enough. Dont feel pressured to do things you know arent good for you emotionally, mentally or financially. Aim to take care of your physical health and personal appearance. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Look for better ways to handle your assets, possessions or health. Doing the right thing and showing some discipline will help you maintain a level of success that will buy you the freedom required to ensure personal and spiritual growth.

6B FR IDAY, AUGUST 17, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER ALL-TECH RACEWAY Photos by LOUIE MASON/Special to the ReporterJoe Belkey of Deland is pictured above in his Johnathan Thomas owned machine taking the win. Below are other pictures from the weekend. Belkey takes win over the weekend helped build chemistry within the team. The Seminoles, who signed a multi-year agreement to host a portion of preseason camp at IMG. headed back to Tallahassee after Thursdays practice. I thought we got a lot closer as a football team, Taggart said. In a lot of different ways, not just out on the football field, but in the meeting rooms and dinner. You see 30 guys on their down time just hanging and being around each other having fun. Meanwhile, Taggart announced defensive end Tre Lawson is no longer with the team. Lawson, a redshirt freshman, did not make the trip to IMG. Offensive lineman Cole Minshew did not practice, however Taggart expects him to be ready for the opener. FSU Continued From 1Blike that. No trash talking. It went really smooth. The Jaguars and Vikings will play on Saturday afternoon at U.S. Bank Stadium. Then theyll go their separate ways for likely a few years, unless they are able to take that final step and match up in the Super Bowl. This experience, particularly facing these star-packed defenses, ought to stick with them for a while. Its a great reminder of why practice is so important every week during the season, Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins said, because each defense has those nuances that, if youre not on top of it, will make for a long day on Sundays. Fortunately for the Vikings, the Jaguars arent on their 2018 regular-season schedule. Defensive end Calais Campbell had a disruptive couple of days going against the Vikings and their injury-thinned offensive line. Theyve got names, theyve got experience, and theyve got production, Cousins said. Certainly thats where a lot of great defenses are founded, is on the defensive line. I have a lot of respect for their group up front. Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles had his share of plays thwarted by the Vikings. When you see the matchups and you look at the talent on the other side of the ball, youre looking at that and youre saying, Listen, these are the type of players that you have to go against to be a heck of a football team in the NFL, Marrone said. For Vikings running back Dalvin Cook, whos now past the 10-month mark in his recovery from reconstructive ACL surgery on his left knee that cut short a promising rookie season, the Jaguars defense was a welcome sight. I was pumped up. It actually felt like I was going into a game, said Cook, who was held out of the exhibition opener at Denver last week and might remain on the sideline as a precaution on Saturday. Though there were no late hits or unnecessarily rough stuff, facing the Jaguars gave Cook some valuable time against a defense that wasnt his own. Your guys take care of you, but with those guys coming in you have to react a little different, Cook said. You have to cut. You have to do things differently. We take care of those guys, but there is just a little different vibe to it. You have to have a little pep in your step. PRACTICE Continued From 1B Columbia into the regular season. While theres plenty of hype surrounding the contest, head coach Brian Allen says the team has prepared for Friday nights game like any other preseason classic. From the time we play a spring game to the time we play a classic, its the same, the eighth-year coach said. Im trying to see where we are as a football team. You look at the spring game, and its what do we have to work on through the summer to be better. Its the same thing with this classic what do we need to work on after this week to win 10 ballgames, win a district championship, be in the playoffs and be 100 percent of the team were going to be in November. Its been a busy offseason at Columbia as several players have received college offers in the last few months. Columbia is ready to field sought-after recruits of its own including four-star wide receiver TJ Jones so championship talk around town continues to grow, with fans convinced this group can reach the title game. Anticipation for this season seems to rise with every passing day. The Tigers first game of the season, however, may be a humbling one. Theres been a lot of buzz to who we are as a football team, Allen said about his teams preseason accolades. Potential isnt anything until its turned into something. And thats what were going to see on Friday night, how we operate our system, offensively, defensively and on specials teams. Obviously, theres an added incentive, with an opportunity to go against guys who are (considered) elite. Loaded with a star-studded receiving core and stout defense, Columbias team is already resembling the 2015 team which reached the state semifinal round. That group was defeated by (eventual) state runner-up Viera, a talented team that was defeated 56-20 by one of the best programs (Allen) in Texas earlier that year. Allen hopes this contest could be a similar springboard into the season for his team. You know good football players when you see them, they look the same, Allen added. I want to see my guys go and compete. Thats the number one thing on my expectation sheet: I want us to compete all night. (We) got an opportunity to go do that, and as a staff, we have an opportunity to see where we are (and) to make adjustments to get ready for Gainesville Thursday. NO UMSTEAD: Columbia coach Brian Allen has ruled out middle linebacker Ethan Umstead for Fridays preseason classic. Umstead, who led the team in tackles last sea son, is still recovering from a left ankle fracture. The standout senior is slated to be ready for the season opener at Gainesville on Aug. 23. LIVE STREAM: Columbias preseason matchup against IMG Academy starts at 7 p.m. and will be live streamed at facebook.com/ IMGAcademy. er and play. The Indians arent quite sure what kind of team theyll face tonight as Trentons game film was limited from its spring game loss to Taylor. The Tigers rushed for over 4,000 yards last season but return less than 900 of that in 2018. Eric Henry and Randy Fuller are two of those rushers that graduated after topping 1,000 yards apiece as seniors. Trenton will rely on running back Tyrese Jackson and new sophomore quarterback Jacob Guthrie. Caleb Morgan, Jacob Morgan and Cole Hafner will anchor the team defensively. I dont know much about them because we just have that one film from the spring. They didnt do well against Taylor, Fort White coach Demetric Jackson said. Trenton is kind of bringing the Bill Wiles single wing offense back. Theyre going to crowd the line of scrimmage and just be real physical and theyre going to pride themselves on trying to hit and be physical. Were going to try and spread them out a little bit but also be physical with them. Friday night is Fort Whites final tuneup before next Fridays season opener against Suwannee at Arrowhead Stadium. Varsity will play the first three quarters while the JV will close things in the fourth. Practice was a bit up and down this week leading into Thursdays walkthrough as the kids adjusted back into the first week of school and Jackson hopes to see better effort from his players against Trenton before the games count for real next week. Wednesday wasnt too good of a day, Jackson said. Offensively the focus just wasnt there but Monday for the first day of school I thought was probably one of the better practices weve had in a long time. I was proud of the focus and attention to detail. But (Wednesday) it wasnt there so that wasnt a good feeling. Jackson hopes Friday night brings plenty.
