Lara Ella Catherine Snyder, 24, of Zirconia, North Carolina, faces a second-degree homicide charge for the fatal shooting two years ago of Jeffrey Bryant Reeves, 51, of Lake City. But Snyder, who is being held in the Buncombe County jail in North Carolina, has refused to waive her extradition rights, said Third Circuit Assistant State Attorney John Durrett. Ive never seen it take more than two months, but it can, Durrett said. Third Circuit investigators need a warrant from Florida Gov. Rick Scott to get the extradition moving. They must first send supporting document and match fingerprints to confirm the person in custody in North Carolina is the same person sought by the warrant here. Jumping through those hoops is mostly a formality in cases such as this one, Durrett said.

SUSPECT continued on 2A CHS student airlifted after head injuryBy COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comCongressman Neal Dunn went on a fullfledged farm-to-table tour of Columbia County agriculture on Monday. Throughout his six stops following seed-to-fertilizer he saw sausage made, beef processed, a cattle auction in full swing at Floridas oldest livestock market and had a breakfast and lunch of the same locally sourced foods. The goal of the trip was to gauge local farmers, ranchers and meat processors about their concerns with soon to be decided, major agricultural legislation.

The student is enrolled in a career and technical education class, which was working outside to mark parking spots near the stadium some time in the morning, Hosford said. Hosford said the particulars on how the student tripped were not yet clear. The student was taken to the school clinic while an ambulance was en route.

It was a special day, Frazier said. Frazier, 48, defeated his challenger, two term incumbent mayor Demetric Jackson, who was appointed in 2011, succeeding Truitt George. In addition to the position of mayor, the town has four council members. Frazier, a conservative Republican, described the campaign, in overall terms, as being good and clean. There wasnt a lot of drama involved, he reflected. Born and raised in Fort White, Frazier graduated from Columbia High School, then later served in U.S. Marine Corps in Operation Desert Storm. He currently owns and operates Yulee Custom Homes, a manufactured home company.

Its pretty much just a waste of time, money and resources, he said. There are situations where someone contests extradition because out-ofstate investigators have the wrong person, Durrett said. Clearly, thats not the case here, he said. Snyders arrest in connection with a separate shooting in North Carolina helped local authorities connect her to the Lake City murder, a Third Circuit State Attorneys Office arrest affidavit shows. The Lake City Police Department and Third Circuit State Attorneys Office sent investigators to Asheville, North Carolina, on July 30 to serve a warrant for Snyder, according to LCPD. She was booked into the Buncombe County jail the same day. On May 14, 2016, officers responded to gunshots at the Ramada Limited on West U.S. Highway 90. Reeves suffered from gunshot wounds and died at the scene, officers say. Two witnesses from the nearby Steak n Shake told investigators they were getting into their vehicles when they heard multiple gunshots and saw a white blond woman shoot the victim. The shooter then ran inside the Ramada Limited, the witnesses said. One employee at the Roadway Inn across the street said he heard gunshots and saw the woman run back into the motel. Another employee at the same business said she saw the actual shooting. The room 220 guest at the Ramada Limited said he heard the gunshots and left his room, seeing a slender blond woman running down the hall. He guessed she came from either room 219 or room 221. After walking outside and seeing the victim, he called 911. In a later interview, the same witness said he saw the woman run toward the west side of the building with a small bag or purse. Receipts show the motel rented room 221 to Snyder, according to the affidavit. Reeves was in room 240. A Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigator found an Aguila-brand .380 cartridge casing at the crime scene, while the Columbia County Sheriffs Office found a shell casing. Both were from the same weapon. Autopsy results showed Reeves suffered from blunt trauma and gunshot wounds in the chest, left index and middle fingers. But the killing blow was a gunshot wound to the head, where a copper-jacketed bullet was recovered. In July 2016, a detective from the Huntersville Police Department in North Carolina contacted LCPD and relayed details of an attempted murder there two days before the Lake City slaying. One of Snyders acquaintances, Donnie Connor, told Huntersville officers they had arranged a meeting so she could pay for a vehicle she was renting from him. Snyder shot at him once from the vehicle and fled, Connor told authorities. Officers found a .380-caliber bullet in Connors driver-side door panel, according to court papers. Snyders vehicle was later found abandoned in Leesburg, Florida. The Orange County Sheriffs Office searched the vehicle and receipt for a $328.62 purchase on May 2 at a pawn shop in Clemson, South Carolina. The transaction was for a Taurus TCP380 and a box of ammunition, according the Clemson Police Department learned. Snyder was arrested and entered a plea to charges for the North Carolina shooting, according to the Third Circuit affidavit. She was recently released from prison and is on parole. Mecklenburg County jail logs show Snyder was booked there in June on charges of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, discharging a firearm into an occupied property and malicious assault in secret. She was released in December 2016. The following February, a manhunt was launched after Mecklenburg County deputies said Snyder cut off her court-ordered monitoring device and disappeared. Snyder was re-arrested in March with an additional charge of interfering with an electronic monitoring device. Snyder was released in August 2017. Snyder faced charges in Florida resulting from a 2015 prostitution sting conducted by Tampa police, court records show. Snyder offered an hour of her time to an undercover officer for $60, the report states. After arranging a meeting with the officer, Snyder was charged with prostitution and possession of cannabis, court records show. The drug charge was dropped and adjudication was withheld on the prostitution charge. SUSPECTContinued From 1Aties. The only description authorities have about the unidentified vehicle that struck Chrome is that the vehicle was a sedan. Authorities are uncertain of the vehicles make or model. Authorities want to speak with the driver of the vehicle, especially in the event he or she was unaware they ran over a person. Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to contact FHP trooper Cpl. Derek MacLaren at (386) 754-6270 or the FHP Communications Center in Jacksonville at 1-800-3871290. LEADSContinued From 1A Holston, 8, and a daughter, Presley, now 19. Fraizer is also a coach for his sons little league football team. We like the small town life, Frazier said. In addition to continuing to run his business, Fraziers duties as mayor will primarily be administrative, although if need be he will be able to break a tie when the council votes. The councils next scheduled meeting is set for Tuesday, September 4, when Frazier will be sworn in. With respect to issues and priorities he plans to address as mayor, the first concern Frazier mentioned was water both the towns water system and the water quality itself. Sometimes it has a smell to it and sometimes its colored, he said. Frazier spent a month doing door-to-door campaigning in Fort White. They more I talked, the more I found the same concerns I have are the same as those in the community, he said. Other concerns Frazier touched on include streets and sidewalks, as well as the town cemeteries, both areas he believes need more attention than they have been given. Were here for the community, Frazier said, a point that he believes local officials have lost touch with, and he also noted the low attendance at city meetings. Were going to start listening again. Were ready for a change in Fort White. Frazier emphasized that when campaigning, he made no promises to voters. What I told them is that I would try, he said. With 284 registered voters in Fort White, Frazier noted that 176 showed up. This was the biggest turnout in the history of Fort White, said Celia Shenise, who served as Fraziers campaign manager. On Saturday morning, in addition to helping with early voting efforts at the Fort White Community Center, Frazier also helped with storm cleanup efforts in the Hollingsworth Estates neighborhood, where rough weather Friday afternoon had caused tree damage. Although a Republican, Frazier emphasized the campaign and election is not about partisanship, and thanked the community for their voter turnout. Whether they voted for me or for Mr. Jackson, it just showed the community was interested, and thats what we want, he said. MAYORContinued From 1A ST EE V EE W ILIL SO NN /Lake Cit y ReporterRonnie Frazier, pictured with his wife Wendy, is looking forward to his new position as mayor of Fort White, which he will assume on SS eptember 4.

He knew who I was, he was alert and talking to me for a few minutes, Hosford said. But I think any time you have a young person that has any type of head injury, you always want to take every precaution. After the ambulance arrived, responders examined the student and decided to call in an emergency medical helicopter. The parents were notified and made prepara tions to meet the student at the Gainesville hospital, Hosford said. Further details, including the students grade level, were not available. STUDENTContinued From 1A DUNNContinued From 1Atee, and Im on that committee, Dunn said, referring to his appointment the Fall Bill Conference Committee. Im one of a handful of people on that who actually have to reconcile those two bills. Previously a member of the House Agriculture Committee, Dunn was appointed to the HouseSenate conference committee on July 18. The important thing is that we understand what these guys need, what the farmers, the ranchers, the foresters need us to pro tect in the final bill, Dunn said after touring Nettles Sausage off Highway 441 with owner Billy Nettles. Also a member of the House Subcommittee on Space, two weeks ago Dunn was in San Diego at the Elon Musk owned and operated Space X headquarters. Monday around 1:30 p.m., after a steak lunch, he was standing before a crowd of cattle breeders and buyers in a mud speckled auction hall talking about the bill set to expire September 30. I want to have input from you guys about anything that you think I need to know before we do this Farm Bill, Dunn said. Dunn talked over cattle that had just passed through Columbia Livestock Market auction area, raising his voice despite the microphone. Though, in a hall full of bulls and heifers, the elephant on the auction block was trade tariffs on meat exports. The president and his representatives are working to get us a better deal, Dunn said. This is a temporary problem, I know that it hits the farmers and ranchers immediately ... so well try to get these trade negotiations as fast as we can. Despite the blow to farmers pockets by the restrictions on certain meat exports to foreign markets like China, Dunn said hed heard largely positive feedback on his tour about the economy under the Trump administration. We got the tax cut done back in December and its really hit the economy in a great way, weve got it working like its never worked before we have the lowest unemployment weve seen since 1969 and the highest wage growth in 16 years, Dunn said to the crowd. This economy is really on fire. The sweeping Farm Bill touches on everything from federal benefit programs, clean water protections, rural broadband and school lunch standards and is passed every five years. The last Farm Bill went into effect 2014, midway into the second term of the Obama presidency. However, Dunns concern with his Columbia County tour was directed at maintaining protections for farmers amid escalating trade wars. Its a lot of defense if you will, Dunn said. We want to keep the protections that we have in there for the farmers, the foresters and the ranchers. So its really important to get out and ask them what do you need protected and also get a sense from them about the economy. Dunn said to do that he had to leave his D.C. and Tallahassee offices and see his district in what he called his mobile office, a black Ford Transit 250 Sherrod touring van. You cant get the full story in Washington you have to go out wherever the problems are and talk to the people, Dunn said. Thats true whether its farmers or whether its Afghanistan. Every single time I got out of Washington I learn things. COREY ARWOOD/Lake City Reporter AA fter a tour of the Nettles meat processing facility, Billy Nettles, right, shows Congressman Neal DD unn an example of the finished produc t that had only to be labeled and shipped, or taken to the retail store operated at the same location and sold. 1,693 have voted so farThe Columbia County Supervisor of Elections office reported that, for early voting, on Monday 548 people voted at the Lake City polling station and 137 voted at the Fort White polling station. Since early voting began on Saturday, at total of 1,346 have voted in Lake City and 347 in Fort White. Early voting will continue at both locations every day, from 8:30 a.m. until 6 p.m., through Saturday, August 25. From staff reports Charter measure booted from ballot by judgeTALLAHASSEE A Leon County circuit judge Monday knocked a proposed education constitutional amendment off the November ballot, saying the wording failed to inform voters of its impact on the creation of charter schools. The proposed amendment, placed on the ballot by the Constitution Revision Commission, would impose eightyear term limits on school board members and would require the promotion of civic literacy in public schools. But the League of Women Voters of Florida said the ballot language would have led to the expansion of charter schools, without informing voters of that likelihood. News Service of Florida

Before heading to the airport, people ask themselves, Am I forgetting anything? We cant imagine a time someone might exclaim, Oh, my pet turkey! but we seem to have arrived there. And now major airlines, including Southwest, are saying enough is enough. Southwest is the latest among the majors to tighten its rules regarding which animals passengers can bring with them on flights. The changes take effect Sept. 17 and will limit most passengers to travel only with dogs or cats. They also must produce a letter from a physician or a licensed mental health professional, attesting to the need for the pet. Look, were not unsympathetic toward people who rely on pets for comfort and support. That said, when most people think about turkey, it typically involves whether they want white or dark meat on Thanksgiving. Theyre not expecting to see one in seat 21B on their flight from Dallas to Denver. Industry group Airlines for America says the number of support animals flown on U.S. carriers increased 80 percent in 2017 from the previous year. It has reached a point where airlines must specify the types of animals not allowed to fly with passengers. For Southwest, that includes rodents, spiders, reptiles, hedgehogs, rabbits and more. Alaska Airlines explicitly prohibits animals with tusks, in case anyone thinks about bringing along a pet warthog. Its difficult for us to disagree. There are stories of people flying, or attempting to fly, with a duck, a turkey, a 70-pound pig, a monkey, a peacock and even a kangaroo. As with so many other privileges, once people begin to abuse them, the powers that be must take steps to restore order. Flying is already, at times, an unpleasant experience. Traffic on the way to the airport, long lines for security screening, crowded terminals and flight delays all make for frustrating travel. Adding having to sit on a plane next to an animal one expects to find at a petting zoo is a bridge too far. Southwest officials made the right decision. They had to consider not only the comfort of the majority of their customers but also their safety. With the number of animals that passengers bring on board continuing to increase, it wouldnt take long before someone suffered an attack by an angry ferret. There is a place for service animals and, in some cases, emotional support pets. Southwest is not banning the practice outright. But its effort, along with that of other airlines, to put in place some semblance of normalcy concerning their traveling pet policy is one with which we agree.Given his braggadocio, his twisted tweets and more, President Donald Trump is his own worst enemy, except, of course, for Chuck Schumer, Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, a past buddy or two, Stormy Daniels, the New York Times, CNN, MSNBC and Robert Mueller. Lets focus on Mueller. Hes the kingpin of the getTrump movement, and no, I dont mean he started it all, but this whole special counsel stuff is crazy. It got going with astonishment at Trumps impossible election along with rumors about his colluding with Russia, and then Mueller became Sherlock Holmes leading an army. A special counsel has the power of a big, big government and millions of dollars not so much to secure justice as to ensnare the guy perceived to be bad, maybe to get him impeached, and to interfere with normal governance. Mueller, as honorable as honorable gets, according to some, once authorized an unprecedented raid on a congressional office in alleged violation of the separation of powers and, toning it down a bit, has lately overreached in whats happening to Trumps former personal attorney and a campaign manager. Now he wants to question Trump in person, an obvious perjury trap as can be seen by anyone noticing Trumps misstatement capability. So far, the foremost, unintended revelation emanating largely from the many-sided onslaught has been that a certain former CIA chief and key FBI players were up to their throat in misdeeds and that the 2016 presidential campaign that most needs investigating is Clintons. The source of much of the garbage about Trumpian evils comes from a former English spy, Christopher Steele, who was paid by the Clinton campaign. He was getting dirt on Trump from Russians to serve her. The FBI failed to disclose what it legally should have in using Steeles dossier in court proceedings and the CIA was involved in all the commotion in ways some find questionable. Outdoing Trumps lies in meaningfulness if not in number, meanwhile, have been former FBI chief James Comey and former CIA chief John Brennan, lately an aspiring TV star who does not shine. The focus of the Mueller investigation now appears to be obstruction of justice when Trump fired Comey, something he was legally entitled to do. The real obstruction is the anti-Trump assault on his being president, of the proper functioning of the federal government, of our precious system our republic, our democracy. The underhandedness began during the campaign but burst into flamboyant wrongdoing after the election, not the least of it being possibly felonious leaks from members of the intelligence community. The players are not just Mueller and other bunches of bureaucrats trying to replace elections, but judges thinking they constitute the legislative branch of government as much as the judicial branch. Thus we find that one president getting rid of an unconstitutional executive order on immigrants by another president is against the law when it isnt or that remarks in campaign speeches count for more than statutes. The great contradiction here is that all of these people doing their earnest if megalomaniacal best to save America are subverting it. None of this is to say that Trump isnt sometimes almost as scary as Hillary Clinton and a majority of Democrats. In a recent poll, they said they preferred socialism to capitalism without a follow-up question about whether they would like to move to Venezuela. Where Trump is usually most scary is where he aligns himself with the left, as in some of his fears about global trade. Many of his other policies are far superior to theirs. Through deregulation and tax reform, he has helped achieve a great economic boom providing jobs for just about everyone who wants one. He has functioned better with the Mueller plague than a predecessor often functioned without it, but think what might have been achieved in the absence of Mueller. If Trump would quit siding with Pelosi, Waters, Schumer and others in running himself down with tirades meant to run others down, he just might have a much better chance in dealing with the impeachment grizzlies.

No thanksHow many illegal aliens is enough?The illegal immigrants, by whatever name or label theyre called, keep on coming. Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York scoffed that America was never all that great. He took it back only after he was inundated by several days of outrage and by the thousands who arrive every day having argued with him with their sore feet. Lonely singles and entire families make the grueling journey from the miserable lands they leave behind. It was ever thus. According to the Department of Homeland Security, 9,258 illegal-immigrant families were detained by U.S. agents along the southwest U.S.Mexican border in July, down a trifle from the 9,434 detained in June and 9,485 detained in May. But those are mere guesses, some more educated than others. No one knows for sure what the accurate number would be. The arrest tallies raise a serious question that needs not only to be asked, but to be answered. Public policy on immigration, legal and otherwise, must be based facts, not guesses. The figure most often cited and widely accepted is that there are 11 million or a little more illegal aliens now residing in the 50 states. The 11 million or slightly more figure was arrived at through analysis by demographers at the Pew Research Center, extrapolating from estimates of two U.S. Census Bureau surveys, the Current Population Survey and the American Community Survey. Both surveys ask respondents where they were born and whether theyre citizens but not whether theyre here legally. Pew refers to the illegals not as illegal or even undocumented, but as unauthorized. Pew calculates that the 11 million figure has been unchanged since 2007. The nonpartisan Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) rightly cautions that the accuracy of any head count of illegals is compromised, given that illegal aliens have a motive to lie about their immigration status, in order to avoid discovery. No one keeps track of the out migration, not even of the liberals who loudly promised to leave the country if Donald Trump were elected. The numbers of those having fled the Donald are believed to be small. FAIR, which estimates the number of illegals in the country somewhat higher at 12.5 million, cites the severely negative impact on the nations taxpayers at the local, state, and national levels. Last September, FAIR estimated the collective cost to taxpayers of illegal immigration to be about $117 billion annually. That figure, which aggregates the costs of public education, health care, criminal justice enforcement, and other public services, was about $3 billion a year higher than a 2013 estimate. Liberal and Democratic partisans regard illegal immigrants as undocumented Democrats, and have little interest in getting a correct number of the illegals here. Many of the loudest among these partisans want a unilateral surrender on illegal immigration, first by abolishing the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The Democrats want more, not less, illegal immigration, judging by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosis remarks in El Paso, Texas 10 days ago, urging Democrats to return the party to the majority in the November midterms by providing what she called leverage for those trying to crash the border. The 11 million illegals or 20 million or 30 million or whatever the real number is are not enough. Another question Mrs. Pelosi and her party dont want to answer is, How many is enough? How many is too many?

They were not available during an open locker room session Monday. The team said both players will answer questions following Jacksonvilles preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday night. Theyre back and were ready to go, coach Doug Marrone said. Marrone declined to say whether he met with the two suspended players Monday morning. I meet with a lot of play ers. I really do, Marrone said. I meet with players all the time. This is the same thing. I meet with them. I talk to them. Its the same way. Im going to keep those conversations private and keep moving along. Marrone suspended Ramsey and Fowler for vio lating team rules and con duct unbecoming a Jaguars football player. Neither trav eled to Minnesota for two days of joint practices with the Vikings and a preseason game. Fowler was involved in several fights on Aug. 12, including one after practice with fellow defensive end Yannick Ngakoue in which they had to be separated repeatedly. No punches were thrown. Ramsey was one of several teammates in the middle of it. He shouted profani ties at media members who captured the altercation on video and later took to Twitter to threaten report ers with war for releasing the video. Fowler and Ramsey rejoined teammates in meetings and practice Monday. You just got back to business as usual like they never left because they never did leave, defensive tackle Malik Jackson said. Theyre going to be put right back in. No need to make a bigger deal out of than we need. Ramsey made headlines again three days later in an interview with GQ mag azine by saying calling Buffalo Bills rookie Josh Allen trash and saying Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan was overrated. Baltimores Joe Flacco, Indianapolis Andrew Luck and Eli Manning of the New York Giants also got sub-par reviews. Ramsey called Pittsburghs Ben Roethlisberger decent at best.

BRIAN COATS/Special to the ReporterColumbia quarterback Jordan Smith slides to avoid contact during the preseason classic versus IMG Academy. The Tigers now enter the regular season with loads of momentum. Columbia should be ranked in states top-10 after win over IMG AcademyFor years, theyve been overlooked by the media rarely considered anymore as one of the states best programs. But the Tigers reminded everyone last week that indeed theyre contend ers, not pretenders, so put some respect on their name. I know, I know, preseason games dont count and start ers were replaced early in the second half so well never what wouldve transpired if they played a full game. Columbia, though, did enough in 26 minutes against IMG Academys national team to be ranked in the top-3 (Class 7A) when the state football poll comes out soon. What happened Friday night stunned many not just in Florida, but across the nation but the result wasnt a shocker in the visiting lock er room. For the Tigers, it was more of a I told you so moment. For a while, at least since Ive been in town, Columbia has proclaimed itself to be the hardest working team in America. The Tigers have always believed, everyone else is just starting to follow along. Hats off to those guys, IMG Academy head coach Kevin Wright told me after the game. They have a really good football team. If they stay healthy, I think youll see them go a long way. Perhaps the Ascenders didnt think the country boys from the rural north could compete with their gang of blue-chip prospects. The Tigers proved once again that outside accolades dont matter when two teams step on the field. And it didnt take long for the Tigers to sink their teeth into the IMG Academy defense Friday night.

Luck, the former West Virginia athletic director, filled that role for four years before stepping down in June.

The former Notre Dame basketball player began his career in college athlet ic at the NCAA as a legislative assistant from 1989-94.

The Crimson Tide is just the second team to be ranked No. 1 in the pre season Associated Press Top 25 poll for three straight seasons. Alabama received 42 out of 61 first-place votes. No. 2 Clemson received 18 first-place votes. Georgia is No. 3 and Wisconsin is fourth. The Badgers received one first-place vote. Ohio State was ranked No. 5. The preseason AP poll started in 1950 and since then only Oklahoma from 1985-87 had started No. 1 in three straight years until now. Ring up another milestone for coach Nick Sabans Tide dynasty. Alabama has won five national championships since 2009 and now has been No. 1 to start the season five times under Saban. Last season was the first time Sabans team started and finished the season No. 1. The Tide enter this season with a ques tion at quarterback, but there appears to be two good answers from which Saban has to choose: Tua Tagovailoa won the College Football Playoff championship game for Alabama with a second-half comeback and overtime touchdown pass. Jalen Hurts has led the Tide to the national title game in each of his two seasons as a starter. Whoever is quarterback, Alabamas offense should be potent with running back Damien Harris working behind a powerful line anchored by tackle Jonah Williams. The Tides always tough defense will have all new starters in the secondary, but defensive end Raekwon Davis and linebackers Mack Wilson and Dylan Moses are primed to be Alabamas next All-Americans. The machine never stops in Tuscaloosa. One again, everybody is chasing Alabama. NO. 1 AT BEING NO. 1 The AP poll began in 1936 and Alabama is approaching the top of a very storied list: Ohio State 105 weeks at No. 1 Alabama 104 Oklahoma 101 Notre Dame 98 Southern California 91 Florida State 72 Nebraska 70 PRESEASON FAVORITES This is Alabamas seventh time overall being a preseason No. 1, matching USC for fourth most. Oklahoma 10 preseason No. 1 rankings Ohio State 8 Alabama 7 USC 7 Florida State 6 Nebraska 6 THE OTHER CHAMPS Central Florida was the only team in the country to go undefeated last season and you might have heard the school decided to declare the Knights national champions because why not? This is college football and nobody is really in charge. UCF is ranked in the Top 25 for the first time to the start the season, coming in 21st in the preseason poll. The Knights are the highest-ranked team not in a Power Five conference, one spot ahead of Boise State from the Mountain West. If that ranking after going unbeaten seems unusually low, it is but it is not unprecedented. In the CFP/BCS era (1998-present), 19 teams have had unbeaten seasons. Three of those teams 1998 Tulane, 1999 Marshall, 2004 Utah were unranked in the preseason poll the next season. Not sur prisingly, all those teams played outside of what were then called BCS automatic qualifying conferences. Five other teams were ranked outside the top 10, including three from outside BCS-auto bid leagues. Boise State in 2007 was No. 24 in the preseason. Utah in 2009 start ed 19th. TCU began 2011 at No. 14. The only so-called power conference team to go unbeaten in the BCS/CFP era and be ranked similarly low the next season was Auburn twice. After going 13-0 in 2004, the Tigers started 2005 ranked 16th. After Cam Newton led Auburn to the 2010 national title, the Newton-less Tigers were ranked No. 23 to begin 2011. SCOREBOARD began. Thrasher said that he met with Wilcox late Sunday night and that the opportunity to return to the NCAA was something they were unable to match. Stan has worked for the NCAA before and Mark thinks the world of him. I think its a good match, Thrasher said. You never want to lose someone that is highly qualified but in this case you have to be very happy for him. Florida State won national championships in football (2013), womens soccer (2014) and softball (2018) under Wilcoxs tenure as well as ren ovating nearly all of their athletic facil ities. Wilcoxs biggest hire was Willie Taggart as football coach after Jimbo Fishers departure for Texas A&M. Wilcoxs last major act at Florida State will be on Sept. 2, when the university is expected to unveil its plans for a football operations facili ty. One night later, the 19th-ranked Seminoles open the Taggart era against No. 20 Virginia Tech. Florida State was only the second Power Five school where its athletic director, football and mens basketball coach were all black. Two of the three recent athletic director hires in the Atlantic Coast Conference have been women Carla Williams (Virginia) and Heather Lyke (Pittsburgh). Thrasher said that ACC Commissioner John Swofford gave him some names on Monday and that he will be looking at other search firms. We are going to be deliberate and make sure we have the right person. I am confident we can keep things moving in the right direction, Thrasher said.NOLES Continued from 1B can say whatever you want as long as its respectful and coach Marrone doesnt care, Jackson said. At the end of the day, hes a top-rated player so if you want to go out there and talk about somebody or talk to somebody, talk about every quarterback in the league, then go ahead. But I think that he has the skills to back it up so I dont care. Ramsey has been ejected from two games in two seasons and has a penchant for getting under the skin of receivers like Steve Smith and A.J. Green, leading some to call him the NFLs newest villain. Why not? Jackson said. Theres a lot of nice guys in this league, a lot of guys that (do) the right thing. Not saying (Ramsey) doesnt do the right thing, but youve got to push peoples buttons to get in their head and be outspoken about it. A lot of guys dont want to be outspoken about it because they dont know if they can back it up. He knows he can back it up so let him do it. NOTES: Jaguars had six play ers return to practice Monday after missing last weeks exhibition at Minnesota, including four starters: safety Tashaun Gipson (ankle), guard Andrew Norwell (calf), right tackle Jermey Parnell (knee) and tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins (chest). ... First-round draft pick Taven Bryan (abdomen) also practiced and is expected to make his preseason debut against the Falcons.JAGS Continued from 1B COURTESYCHS falls in 4 Columbias volleyball team was defeated in its season opener against Bell Monday night. The Lady Tigers fell in four sets (11-25, 25-16, 13-25, 19-25) on the road. Columbia gears up for its first district matchup tonight at Lake Weir.

LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS TUESDAY, AUGUST 21, 2018 3B CIPHER DEAR ABBY: I come from a small, close family. Last year, we suered a devastating loss. My cousin and her two children were killed in a car accident. We have all been profoundly aected by this loss, especially my aunt and uncle. Fast forward: Another cousin is pregnant with her second child. She wants to name her daughter Daisy because she wants all her children to have ower-themed names. Daisy is the name of one of the children who died. I, and others in the family, are upset by her decision because her reason for choosing the name has nothing to do with honor ing our lost family member. I understand no one owns a baby name, and she can choose whatever name she wants for any reason. But I am having trouble getting past the fact that Ill see this child at family gatherings and have to call her by my dead cousins name for no reason other than it was a cute ower name. My cousin is set on using this name despite family protests, and I cant help but foresee bitterness ahead for us when weve already dealt with so much. What, if anything, can we do to make this situation more positive? -NAME GAME IN NEW YORK DEAR NAME GAME: Your cousin appears to have the empathy of a garden snail. Did it occur to anyone in the family to suggest to her that there are other ower names besides Daisy -Dalia, Daphne or even Desert Rose? (Her nickname could be Desi, which is cute.) If you havent, please do before the baby ar rives. However, if she refuses to change her mind, its time for you to start memorizing the Serenity Prayer. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married for 22 years. Hes a diamond in the rough. My grown children, three boys, have always just tolerated him. ey say he talks too much, doesnt listen and still treats the younger two like children. I know he can be overbearing at times. ey have now ganged up and will no longer allow the grandchildren to come stay with me. ey say my husband is too harsh in cor recting them, which isnt true. e only time he is loud and fast to correct is if the parents arent here to do it. ey have oered no alternative solution. Two have expressed to my husband how they feel. My husband is trying to acknowledge their feelings and wants to do better. How do we proceed as a family? Im afraid they will withhold the grands each time they disagree with us. Counseling is out since we live in separate cities. Any words of wisdom for us? -HURTING HEART IN SOUTH CAROLINA DEAR HURTING HEART: Look at this from your sons perspective. When they hear from your grandchildren that your grouchy (but well-meaning) husband yelled at them, as parents, their rst instinct is to protect their kids. I cant guarantee that your sons wont use emotional blackmail in the future, but I can oer two suggestions: Your husband should take a deep breath and count to 10 before he reacts, and he should defer the discipline to Grandma. And if that isnt enough to satisfy your sons, then you will have to visit them instead of having them visit you.

IndyCar rallies together in wake of Wickens accidentBy DAN GELSTONAssociated PressLONG POND, Pa. Alexander Rossi and Robert Wickens have forged a bit of a rivalry this season. Theyve tangled on the track a few times, and exchanged the occasional verbal dart some more playful than others, like when Wickens jokingly locked Rossi in a prison cell during a promotional event last month. But animosity between IndyCar drivers tends to dissolve quickly amid grim reminders of the sports dangers. Wickens was just a few laps into the race at Pocono Raceway on Sunday when he connected with Ryan Hunter-Reay and soared into the catchfence. The fencing was shredded, and Wickens car was reduced to just the tub, which came to a rest on the track along an interior wall. The race was stopped and IndyCar came together. All 22 of us, 33 of us, whatever it may be, are a family, Rossi said. We try our best to look after each other out there. You dont want to see that happen to anyone. Well continue to think of him and pray for him, his family, his fiancee; all that they have to deal with. Wickens was being treated for injuries to his lower extremities, right arm and spine following an accident that led to him getting airlifted from the track to the hospital. IndyCar said the Canadian sustained a pulmonary contusion and will undergo an MRI and probable surgery at Lehigh Valley Hospital Cedar Crest in Allentown. IndyCar drivers were more concerned with his health and future than what the race meant to the championship picture. All we can hope for is that everybody is going to be OK, points leader Scott Dixon said. It was the latest chilling moment at Pocono: Justin Wilson died from a head injury in 2015 when a piece of debris from a crashed car bounced off the track and hit his helmet. James Hinchcliffe, who was caught up in Wickens wreck, had survived his own life-threatening injury when a broken part from his car pierced an artery during a 2015 crash at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. But the series goes on even on the oval tracks like Indy and Pocono where danger makes even veteran race fans tense up. Once the green flag dropped for the final time Sunday, the drivers played nice. There wasnt another caution the rest of the way, and Rossi closed the gap on Dixon in the points race with a dominant win. Rossi led 180 of 200 laps to win his second straight race and third of the sea son, slicing Dixons lead to 29 points with three races left. Will Power, who won the last two Pocono races, was second, and Dixon finished third. Weve been a bit blah. Theyve been excelling, Dixon said of Rossi. Rossi also won for Andretti Autosport on the streets of Long Beach in April and the Mid-Ohio road course three weeks ago. Wickens finished second at Mid-Ohio, what was the latest in a sensational string of races for the 29-year-old Canadian driver in his first season in IndyCar. Wickens had reeled off five straight topfive finishes and is sixth in the stand ings. Hinchcliffe, runner-up on ABCs Dancing With The Stars in 2017, helped lure Wickens to IndyCar and Schmidt Peterson Motorsports this season after a successful career in Europe. I know he is in good hands. Hopefully, well see him back in the car soon, Hinchcliffe said. It surely wont be next week at Gateway Motorsports Park or the rest of this sea son. IndyCar drivers can steel their will to put any kind of bad news behind them once they get behind the wheel and hit 220 mph in an open cockpit. Theres a championship to race for and Dixon has a fifth title in sight. He not only has to hold off Rossi, but former series champions Josef Newgarden and Power arent out of contention yet. Rossi sprayed champagne and confetti flew on the podium. The celebration may have seemed normal, but thoughts couldnt help stray toward Wickens. Its tough to really celebrate after what happened, Rossi said. By DICK SCANLONAssociated PressST. PETERSBURG Ryan Yarbrough helped extend Tampa Bays shutout streak to 23 innings, and the Rays got their only run via video replay in a 1-0 win over the Kansas City Royals on Monday night. Yarbrough (12-5) pitched 5 1/3 innings in relief of Rays opener Hunter Wood. The rookie left-hander gave up two hits and a walk while striking out six, earning his major league-leading 10th relief win. Yarbrough and three others combined for Tampa Bays second straight shutout. Jose Alvarado pitched the ninth for his fifth save and stretched the Rays streak of scoreless innings, which included 14 over the weekend in Boston. Willy Adames drove in the games first run. After singles by Ji-Man Choi and Kevin Kiermaier in the second inning, Adames hit a two-out chopper over third base. Adames beat Rosell Herreras throw across the diamond, but it took a 43-second review to reverse the original out call. The run came off right-hander Jorge Lopez, who pitched five innings in his sec ond major league start. Lopez (0-3) gave up five hits and three walks. Kiermaier had three of Tampa Bays eight hits after coming into the game bat ting .127 in August. Royals reliever Jake Newberry struck out three in 1 2/3 innings in his major league debut. Wood pitched 1 2/3 innings, giving up two hits with two strikeouts. TRAINERS ROOM Royals: LHP Danny Duffy (left shoul der) felt really good after a bullpen ses sion, according to manager Ned Yost, who will determine Tuesday whether Duffy will pitch Thursday nights series finale. Rays: INF Daniel Robertson said recent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb went well and he has no pain. Robertson hasnt given up on getting at-bats during the final days of the season. There wont be any rushing it, he said. ... LHP Vidal Nuno (strained right ham string) will make his second rehab start Tuesday night with Class A Charlotte and should be back in September. MINORS MATTERS LHP Matthew Liberatore, taken by the Rays in the first round of the 2018 draft, allowed three hits and struck out eight over five innings to get his first pro win in the GCL Rays 6-0 victory over the Twins. He has a 0.98 ERA over 27 2/3 innings in eight starts. UP NEXT LHP Blake Snell (14-5) will pitch Tuesday nights game against Royals RHP Glenn Sparkman (0-1). Snell, whose 2.10 ERA ranks second in the AL, has not given up a run in two straight starts of five innings each.Yarbrough, Rays post another shutout, 1-0 B5

Guys are in shape because of the way we practice. We are very successful if we get it going in six to eight seconds. But it can better. Not being satisfied is what has led the Tigers to this point, finally receiving some more attention from Power 5 colleges and out side media outlets. The Tigers wont be completely satisfied though until that state title trophy is back to Lake City. But after beating top-ranked IMG Academy, they should be considered a top-tier team. Theres no reason why they shouldnt be ranked somewhere in the states top-10 teams overall, and shouldnt be any lower than third in Class 7A. Its not everyday that a unranked public school embarrasses one of the nations premier programs. I encourage all voters to give credit where credit is due. Enough is enough. Put some respect on their name.

Meyer has been the subject of an investigation into the handling of domestic-abuse allegations against former assistant coach Zach Smith. The university said factfinders briefed the board on Monday. The panel will convene in a pub lic session on Wednesday morning before going behind closed doors to discuss the next steps. President Michael V. Drake will have the final say on whether Meyer keeps his job or faces other consequences. (Mondays) briefing is to ensure that board members are adequately prepared to discuss this matter at Wednesdays meeting, Ohio State spokeswoman Emily Caldwell said Monday in an email. No timetable was given for final resolution of the matter, which has overshadowed the teams prepa ration for the 2018 season that begins at home Sept. 1. The trustees hired an outside law firm for $500,000 to do the investigation, which took two weeks. The investigation centers on what Meyer knew and did about allegations of abuse against Smith, who was fired July 23 after his wife sought a protective order. Smith hasnt been charged or convicted of abuse, but his ex-wife Courtney Smith alleged her husband shoved her against a wall and put his hands around her neck in 2015. Meyer has said he handled the accusations properly when he found out about them, but acknowl edged he lied to reporters at first when he said he hadnt heard of the incident. Ohio State put Meyer under investigation after Courtney Smith went public, giving a reporter text messages and pictures she traded with Meyers wife, Shelley Meyer, in 2015. Drake, the Ohio State president, is rarely in the public spotlight, unlike his predecessor, Gordon Gee, who prided himself on his reputation as a fast-talking, ubiquitous, and sports-loving Ohio State fanatic. Drake surprised Ohio State fans in 2014 when he fired the schools marching band director after an investigation uncovered band traditions and rituals that were racy, raunchy or suggestive. The band director, Jonathan Waters, said he had been trying to change many of the activities before he was terminated, but Drake stood his ground despite intense criticism over the firing. He and the university insisted that Waters controlled the band at the time of the probe and was answer able for all of its practices, even those that evolved out of old traditions.
