Nicely was arrested just after 11 p.m. Wednesday at a residence on the 1600 block of SW Haltiwanger Road, and booked into Columbia County Jail on $51,000 bond where he remained Thursday, records show.

The county manager agreed, but maintained he has always been upfront about that fact. Some board members expressed agreement that the total package is expected to be more than $30 million, after factoring in $2.4 million in architectural fees and other considerations on top of the $28 million estimate, which is for construction alone. Its true, County Manager Ben Scott told the Lake City Reporter after the meeting, saying the county has made it clear that the current total for architectural and construction costs are projected to be $30.4 FALL SPORTS PREVIEW FALL SPORTS SPECIAL LARGE FORMAT SECTION IN TODAYS PAPER! 3 CARS CRUSHED JAIL continued on 2A Countys oft-cited figure of $28M leaves things out.

Fake flyers stir up stormmillion. So yes, the true cost of the jail is going to be upwards of $30 million, Scott said. The county has previously mentioned $2.4 million in architectural fees, but the $28 million figure has been the one most prominently displayed at board and town hall meetings. During the meeting, Commissioner Rusty DePratter was the first to bring up the price tag presented to the public, saying the total project is $31.5 million and should be advertised as such. So Ben, can we address it at the true cost from now on? DePratter told the county manager. Stop writing $28 million, he added. Everyone here thinks its $28 million. After the meeting, Scott said hes unsure how DePratter arrived at the $31.5 million figure. DePratter could not be reached for comment. Commission Chairman Tim Murphy backed up DePratter during the meeting. Thats the true number that were at, Murphy said. How much can you bring this cost down? he asked Scott. Any price tag floating around at this point is an estimate, said Commissioner Bucky Nash. Everybodys pulling numbers and you really dont know, Nash said. Commissioners are looking at financing options. The county took out an $8 million loan in December for a new administrative building, but that plan was scrapped and the money repurposed. The county could borrow another $19 million later this year to get ahead of rising interest rates. A one-cent sales tax on the primary ballot for Tuesday would generate $7.7 million for road projects, freeing up other money in the budget for the jail, county officials say. If the sales tax doesnt pass, the commission is poised to raise the property tax millage rate from 8.015 to 8.87. JAILContinued From 1A alleged verbal disturbance. When deputies arrived they found the victim with what were described as severe injuries to his face who told them Nicely was the perpetrator. In testimony the man provided to officers, he said he approached Nicely and an argument erupted about their dogs fighting. He said the exchange turned violent when Nicely knocked him to the floor, pinned him down and punched him repeatedly in the face. When he got up the man told CCSO that Nicely then pinned him to the wall and continued punching him. After the second instance Nicely allegedly left the home. When officers arrived Nicely approached them in the driveway to the residence and began an expletive laden tirade, the report said. He was ordered to stop walking and lie on the ground multiple times, to which he replied you, the report said. After getting the second reply of you, David was tased. However, after being shocked and later read his rights, Nicely said he wanted to continue talking with deputies. He told them he attacked after the man got in his face and bumped him during their argument. The 72-year-old-man reportedly declined transport to a local hospital, despite paramedic advice, the report said. Nicely was booked into jail just after midnight Wednesday for aggravated battery on a person 65 years of age or older and resisting arrest without violence. BEATINGContinued From 1A COU RR T EE S YY Pictured is a digitally altered flyer falsely portraying something that never hap pened: Barack Obama putting his arm around the shoulder of DD istr ict 10 state representative candidate Chuck Brannan. The flyer, and another one like it, has sparked a furor among supporters of both Brannan and his opponent Marc Vann, who disavowed the mailers and says he doesnt know who sent them. Altered photos falsely portray conservative candidate as liberal.By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comDoctored photos and cries of dirty politics are at the forefront in the final days of the state House District 10 Republican primary. Earlier this month, Republican voters throughout District 10 found flyers in their mailboxes featuring a fake photo of candidate Chuck Brannan standing with Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi. Obamas arm is made to look as if its wrapped around Brannans shoulder. In all capital letters, the header reads, Chuck Brannan will be judged by the company he keeps. The flyers list the name of a political action committee called Truth in Politics, which sent out another wave of attack mail that falsely quotes Brannan as saying, Hillary Clinton is a proven leader who shares our values, and claims Chuck Brannans campaign is bankrolled by the same liberals who funded Hillary Clinton. Brannan, a Macclenny resident and retired sheriffs office investigator with decades of experience in law enforcement, is chairman of the Baker County Republican Party. He is facing off against Lake City business owner Marc Vann for the GOP nomination. Brannan said the inflammatory flyers echo a recent attack from Vann at a Florida Gateway College political forum. The message also matches up with flyers that Vann has admitted to authorizing, which Brannan called equally offensive despite the lack of doctored photos. Theyve all been the same theme, Brannan said. Theyve all tried to tie me to liberal Democrats, which is ridiculous. During the political forum, Vann, whom the Lake City Reporter endorsed, criticized Brannan for netting endorsements from pro-Clinton labor unions such as the AFL-CIO. A back-and-forth ensued, with Brannan countering that the endorsement came through conservative police and firefighter unions under the umbrella of the AFL-CIO. Brannan doubts the similarities between Vanns public comments and campaign flyers and the Truth in Politics flyers are a coincidence. If its not him, its somebody trying to help him, he said. Vann denies any involvement or knowledge of who sent the material. To be honest, I dont have a clue, he said. Thats the only thing I know to say about the thing. Vann said he was campaigning last week in Live Oak when his wife called to complain about the Truth in Politics flyer she found in their mailbox. Thats the first we knew, first we heard, he said. Vann said he reached out to various contacts in an effort to get to the bottom of the matter. I was calling everybody I could trying to get some answers, he said. The Columbia County Sheriffs Office received a complaint from Vann on Aug. 17, a report shows. CCSO investigator Katina Dicks launched an investigation. The flyers feature a disclaimer stating they are paid for by Truth in Politics, FLYERFL YER S continued on 3A

Cindy Elsenheimer, a meteorologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations Jacksonville office, said sensors at Lake City Gateway Airport registered wind gusts just before 4 p.m. The airport weather sensor reported a gust of 56 miles per hour, Elsenheimer said. A brief downpour accompanied the conditions and Elsenheimer said a quarter of an inch of rain was documented by an observer two miles east of Lake City. She said the weather was unusual compared to patterns seen recently in the area and it was accompanied by drier air surrounding the storm system. It was pretty sudden, Elsenheimer said. Its a little different than our normal summertime storms. Elsenheimer said that dry surrounding air contributed to greater wind strengths, and added it was within the realm of possibility that the soil surrounding the tree was inundated from recent heavy rains. Neeley said he saw no signs beforehand the tree might fall, and given its size anything in a wide radius was at jeopardy if it did. The tree probably fell, it probably fell 20-30 yards to hit my truck, Neeley said. You never wouldve expected that kind of wind would tilt that tree over. The vehicles were parked in the dirt lot just west of the produce store across SE Lochlynn Terrace. I had just dropped my truck off there at the store and come to Jacksonville to get a load of produce, Neeley said. Pictures after the incident show the other passenger vehicles had broken windshields and sustained major body damage. Its kind of a freak thing, Neeley said. FREAKContinued From 1A Post Office Box 33970, Indiatlantic, Florida. Vann told investigator Dicks he was in the process of filing a complaint with the Florida Elections Commission. Vann said the chairman for Truth in Politics, Jason Steele, told him the committee had been defunct for more than a year, according to the report. The report identifies Steeles first name as James on first reference, citing Vann. Subsequent references identify him as Jason Steele, the name listed by the Florida Division of Elections as the committees registered agent. Steele said he was interested in a lawsuit if anyone was found responsible for using his committees name or his personal information, Vann told CCSO. Steeles Truth in Politics committee was disbanded Dec. 15, 2016, records show. But there is another active committee by the same name, records show, this one based in Doral, near Miami. The group came into existence late July, naming Kristopher Guzman as chair and David Hernandez as treasurer. On Aug. 20, Vann told Dicks he believed the new Truth in Politics mistakenly used the old ones address. The CCSO investigation came to an end at Vanns request. The phone number listed for the new Truth in Politics connects to Hernandezs CPA firm in Doral, DHCPA. Guzman and Hernandez could not be reached for comment. Vann said the address on the flyers seemed to be a simple error and again denied any ties with either Truth in Politics group. I think people that know me understand that its not me, Vann said. Vann said the Truth in Politics flyers were totally inaccurate, but not illegal, he said. Brannan, a former law enforcement investigator, disagrees, saying the use of the wrong address violates election laws. Its just illegal as all get-out, he said. Brannan said he spent 10 minutes trying to convince an older voter that the photos of him with Obama, Clinton and Pelosi are fake. Thats whats wrong with politics, he said. Brannan said Vann may try to distance himself from the attack ads containing the fake photos, but two earlier sets of flyers that Vann authorized were just as bad. Those didnt have doctored images to help associate him with the liberal politicians, Brannan said, but the message was the same. And I really take offense at being portrayed this way, he said. Because it is the exact opposite of what I am.

To the Editor: There is a flyer being mailed from Marc Vann that is running for State Representative against Chuck Brannan. I hope yall look at this and see the lies this man has said about Chuck Brannan. Several years ago I changed from the Democratic Party to the Republican Party because of the lies and fake news that the Democrats stood for. And I cant believe the deceitful lies perpertrated by Marc Vann. Mr. Vann says he is a devoted man of God. Well, Mr. Vann, God hates liars and you have done nothing but lie about a good man, Chuck Brannan. Chuck has done nothing but serve his county and state all his life. Because you cant find anything against his character, you have to make it up. 1st Fact: Chuck is not or never been endorsed or supported by or a supporter of Obama and Hillary. 2nd Fact: Chuck is very much pro Trump. He attend President Trumps inauguration and Ball by invitation. He represented the State of Florida Republican Party. 3rd Fact: Chuck supports border walls. 4th Fact: Chuck does not support common core. His wife was a very dedicated teacher and principal. Chuck is a great supporter and sponsor of school projects such as FFA and reading to students. 5th Fact: Chuck is the only candidate supported and sponsored by the NRA. He is the only candidate the NRA says they can trust. 6th Fact: Chuck has been endorsed by the Florida Fraternal Order of Police. 7th Fact: Chuck was endorsed by 18-year elected State Attorney Bill Cervone. Chuck has also been endorsed by Florida Police Benevolent Association, Florida Professional Firefighters, United Sportsmen of Florida, Baker County EMS Professionals. Mr. Vann what have you done NOTHING. You have to lie your way in with fake facts. Your wife may be employed by Elizabeth Porter but that doesnt give you any merit. People of District 10 I hope you wake up to the lies this man Marc Vann has presented as facts about a good man. I have personally known Chuck his entire life. If Mr. Vann is gonna lie about the facts of the election what will he do if he makes it into office. Go to Chucks webpage and view the facts and endorsements. Mary Jeanne Williams Lake CityWhen I leave home, my dog doesnt know how long Ill be gone, or if Ill ever even come back! I may hear a concerned whimper. But then when I do come home, she is a bundle of total excitement, love, and joy that Im here. If there are any resentments or anger from the past, she sure doesnt show it. I know shes had some good times, as well as some bad times. I dont think any of us have the perfect life. There have been times in my life where I held onto resentments or anger toward people who I thought treated me unfairly or cruelly. There have been times where I waited for news from the doctor about upcoming heart surgery, or a cancer diagnosis with uncertain future outcomes of treatment or recovery. Those werent the happiest times. When we hold onto negative memories and bad feelings, it causes us to carry forth those negative emotions and negative attitudes into our present life, and to take some of the joy and appreciation away from our chances for real happiness. Life taught me long ago that any time spent hating or feeling sorry for myself does no good. And time spent worrying about tomorrow is really wasted time, and can take away some of our chances for future happiness. Really, all we have is the present. The past is gone, and cant be changed. The future only exists as possibilities, and worrying about tomorrow does no good, either. All we have is now. How can we use this moment, right now, to help build that happier and better future? Sometimes life presents us examples of how to live our lives from those who dont hate or worry: our pets. Is your dog happy to see you when you get home? When he or she plays, do they dive in with total commitment, effort, and joy? And when the end is near, does your pet deal with its situation and not worry about what happens next? I think so. The past is gone. The future only exists as possibilities. What can you do now? Live life in the present! Ive found that for me, getting over the past, and facing the future moment by moment, helps me live better in the now. Let go of the past. All youve really got is this moment. What you think, feel, and do in this moment, will help you live that better life. Work on dropping any resentments, regrets, or hard feelings. Forgive. When you hold onto anger or resentment, it doesnt hurt or get back at whoever you blamed. The only one who suffers from hating or feeling sorry for themselves is the one who holds onto those bad feelings. Holding onto baggage from the past only gets in your way. Let it go. How about the future? At one time, I had the rest of my life planned out: a lifelong plan for my career, and even my retirement years. Then when I had the most solid long range plans, life threw me curves. Sometimes, my life has totally changed in a day, or in a month. Life has many surprises. We cant predict the future. The best you can do is live your life the best you can now. A recent quote credited to blogger Elaine Dalton: If you want to touch the past, touch a rock. If you want to touch the present, touch a flower. If you want to touch the future, touch a life. Learn to forgive, let go, and look forward with hope and a positive attitude. Its okay to plan, but use your plans as directions to aim towards, and to give you energy and hope. Believe that life will get better and better, and its more likely to actually get better. The rest of your life can be the best of your life. Live for this day!

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman ANOTHER VIEW Live in the present LETTERS TO THE EDITOROur newest battlegroundThe question is whether an entirely new branch of the armed forces is necessary to thwart our adversaries in space. Perhaps its the name that makes the idea sound ridiculous like something out of a 1970s sci-fi movie or a Saturday morning cartoon. Whatever the reason, President Donald Trumps proposed Space Force has come under sustained mockery. But it is an idea that is at least worth careful consideration. The proposal, long promoted by the president and further explained by Vice President Mike Pence in a speech at the Pentagon earlier this month, calls for the creation of a sixth branch of the military to complement the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard. Space is essential to our nations security, prosperity, and our very way of life, the vice president declared. The time has come to write the next great chapter in the history of our armed forces, to prepare for the next battlefield where Americas best and bravest will be called to deter and defeat a new generation of threats to our people, to our nation. Mr. Pence pointed out, correctly, that Americas competitors are increasingly weaponizing space. In 2007, China launched a missile that tracked and destroyed one of its own satellites a highly provocative demonstration of Chinas growing capability to militarize space, he said. Russia has been designing an airborne laser to disrupt our space-based system. .... Both China and Russia have been conducting highly sophisticated on-orbit activities that could enable them to maneuver their satellites into close proximity of ours, posing unprecedented new dangers to our space systems. So, as the vice president noted, there can be no doubt that to counter our adversaries, the U.S. must ramp up its military capabilities in space. The question is whether an entirely new branch of the armed forces is necessary to do so. Given the extraordinary cost and bureaucratic complexity that creating a new branch would entail, this is far from clear. Indeed, it was precisely for these reasons that deeply respected Secretary of Defense James Mattis (one of the few Cabinet members whom the president appears to trust) announced his opposition to the creation of a Space Force last year. Creating one would be premature and add additional organization and administrative [expenses] to the department at a time I am trying to reduce overhead, Secretary Mattis wrote at the time. This year, however, Mattis is on board, citing the increased military spending that the Trump administration has delivered. (No cost estimates for the new Space Force have been released.) Earlier this year, the president signed an executive order directing the Department of Defense and Pentagon to immediately begin the process necessary to establish a Space Force as the sixth branch of the armed forces. That wont get it over the hump though. Creating a new branch of the military would require congressional approval. Given general congressional gridlock and the partisan food-fighting that characterizes any election year, that means a Space Force looks highly unlikely in the near future. In the meantime, the Air Force will keep an eye on the heavens through its Air Force Space Command, a division created by President Ronald Reagan in 1982. Funnily enough, Reagan too was mocked when he suggested America ramp up its military investments in space. Back here on Earth, history does sometimes repeat itself. Panama City News HeraldMarc Vann flyers are misleadingTo the Editor: I was extremely disappointed with the Lake City Reporters endorsement of Hunter Peeler for the Columbia County School Board over Shayne Edge. Peelers youth and the fact he is barely out high school makes him a terrible candidate. Add to that the fact that he doesnt own any real estate and has never paid any real estate or school taxes further disqualifies him. I grant that he is a sharp and studious young fellow but he still has a lot of life lessons to learn. Granted if he was successful and won the race, he would only be 1 vote out of 5 in any particular matter, but that 1 vote could frequently be the deciding vote. I would prefer a mature college graduate that actually pays property and school taxes. A person who is rich in life experience, who is also a varsity coach and a successful businessman and has children in the school system. Shayne Edge is the no-brainer in the Columbia County School Board race in my opinion. Robert C.

Those who oppose the ultimate penalty argue it demeans the dignity of man. As it turns out, that argument against the death penalty contradicts Gods reasoning for instituting it. The reason Christians believe in the dignity of man is because man is the only creature God made in His image, cf. Genesis 1:26-27. Mans dignity arises from the fact that he was created in the image of God. That image has been marred by the fall into sin, but is indelibly innate in every human being. There came a time in the history of man that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually, Genesis 6:5. This is an accurate description of a society completely corrupted by the absence of law and order. It was this cultural climate that precipitated the flood. Emerging from the ark Noah and his family were tasked with repopulating the earth and restoring the civilization that had succumbed to anarchy. To do that God gave mankind its first law, Whoever sheds mans blood, by man his blood shall be shed, for in the image of God He made man, Genesis 9:6. If mankind were to survive as a civilized society, it would only be possible established on a sense of right and wrong founded on the principle of justice. So the Father took the most serious of human offenses, murder, to lay a foundation of justice from which all other lesser offenses could be patterned. Gods reasoning is when a man takes another mans life without justification; he is destroying the image of God in another person needlessly, and justly forfeits the right to continue bearing that image himself. And He tasked mankind with the prosecution of justice, by man his blood shall be shed. God initiated capital punishment as a just penalty when a man murders the dignity of another. That is clear from the wording of Genesis 6:9. God did not institute the death penalty as a deterrent; He did so to establish societal justice. If we as a society forsake the practice of justice we may find ourselves sliding down a very slippery slope to the precipice of anarchy. Nothing so inclines people to take the law into their own hands as a The dignity of man and the death penaltyCHRISTIAN CONCEPTS Gary Kinggarybkingcc@gmail.com If mankind were to survive as a civilized society, it would only be possible established on a sense of right and wrong founded on the principle of justice.You deserve it! I wonder how often we have been convinced to buy something because we believed we deserved it? We constantly hear messages and commercials about products and services, all promising something we should not have to live without. And yet, while we are so busy patting ourselves on the back for being so deserving, who really gets the better deal? According to Romans 16:17-18, the Bible says that people who are serving their own appetites use smooth talk and flattery to deceive the minds of nave people. Proverbs 29:5 also warns whoever flatters his neighbor is spreading a net for his feet. This is a warning to be more guarded in the face of flattery than an honest reprimand. Initially, it may not be as pleasant, but at least you will honestly know where you stand. William Penn, founder of the Pennsylvania colony, was once quoted: Avoid flatterers, for they are thieves in disguise. And he didnt even have television! In relation to false advertisement, we can easily make the connection between a flatterer and a thief. After all, we know those commercials are purposed to make a profit! In relationships, however, we might not always see the correlation as clearly. By definition, flattery is excessive praise from motives of self-interest. Thus, it is the motives and not the praise that is the problem. In healthy relationships, our motives should always be for the good of the other per son. Honest compliments are always welcome, but deceptive flattery truly is a net for our feet and a thief in disguise. Why is this so? 1) Since the motive for flattery is self-interest, it lays a trap to manipulate behavior from which the flatterer will benefit. If a simple request would be rejected, flattery becomes the tool that serves to deceive and control. 2) Flattery is dangerous to the recipient when it is received, (we might say swallowed hook, line and sinker) and results with pride and conceit causing the person to act foolishly. It is worth mentioning that we are all susceptible to flattery because it is human nature to enjoy hearing good things about ourselves, especially the positive opinion of others. Interestingly, the original Honest compliments...or deceptive flattery?By definition, flattery is excessive praise from motives of self-interest. HEART MATTERS Jesus prepares his disciples Part one of two Have you ever experienced an event in your life that you wish you were prepared for ahead of time? I am sure that as we all look back on life there were some moments where we were prepared and other moments where we were completely surprised. Jesus prepared his disciples for his upcoming death, burial and resurrection. Jesus will and can prepare you for some of the upcoming events in your life so that you are not completely taken by surprise. Please read Matthew 20:17-19 this morning as Jesus prepares his disciple for what will soon take place in their lives. From reading Matthews Gospel we have learned that there are three ways Jesus prepared his disciples concerning his death. He prepared them publicly. He did this in chapter twelve when the pharisees and scribes asked him to perform a sign so that they would believe in him. He told them that no sign would be given them except the sign of Jonah who was in the belly of the great fish three days and three nights. Secondly he begins to prepare them privately. We see in this chapter that Jesus pulls them aside. Earlier in chapter sixteen he points out to his disciples that he must suffer many things from the elders, chief priest and scribes, be killed and raised on the third day. When Jesus mentioned his suffering we recall Isaiah 52:13-15 about the suffering servant but before Jesus can be the suffering servant he will have to be the obedient servant as written in Isaiah 50:4-11. In chapter 17 after the transfiguration he says privately to Peter, James and John not to talk about what they saw until after his resurrection. Then after healing a boy with a demon he again mentions his upcoming sufferings to disciples once again preparing them for what will soon take place. Then time he reveals that he will be betrayed by one of their own. So Jesus prepared them publicly and privately. Now Jesus is going to prepare them specifically. Jesus now on his way to Jerusalem pulls them aside privately telling them the specifics of what will happen when its his time. Jesus says that the Son of Man will be handed over to the chief priest and scribes and they will condemn him to death. This happens after Judas betrays Jesus with a kiss in the Garden of Gethsemane. The chief priest and scribes get the Sanhedrin to hold night time trials. Jesus told them the specifics of what would take place. He would be turned over to the GentilesPontius Pilate and the Roman soldiers, they would mock him-blind fold him and ask him to prophecy who did it. They would flog him with a cat of nine tales to within an inch of his life. After this, put a robe on him with a crown of thorns and bow down to him. After this they would crucify him. But on the third day he would be raised from the dead. Robert Bassrobertcbass@yahoo.com KING continued on 6A LAND continued on 6AAngie Landangieland3@windstream.net

Priest accused of stealing $200,000plus from church resigns WednesdayThe Associated PressA South Florida priest has resigned after being accused of stealing more than $200,000 from the church. The Archdiocese of Miami said in a statement that Father Henryk Pawelec has paid the money back to St. Coleman Catholic Church in Pompano Beach. But he still could face legal action after the church reported the incident to the state attorneys office. Miami Archbishop Thomas Wenski said the breach of trust saddens and disappoints him. The Sun Sentinel reports the archdiocese reviewed the congregations financial records after receiving reports that Pawelec was diverting money. He agreed to resign on Wednesday.

The Indians are 2-2 in the last four meetings against the Bulldogs. By MITCH STACYAssociated PressCOLUMBUS, Ohio Urban Meyer may have weathered scandal at Ohio State, but not without a lasting stain as an exhaustive report detailed behavior that could easily have taken down a coach of lesser stature. The investigation released soon after Meyer answered questions from reporters about his sus pension Wednesday night showed that he tolerated bad behavior for years from assistant coach Zach Smith, including domestic-violence accusations, drug addiction, lies and other acts that directly clash with the values Meyer touts publicly. The findings represent a new turn in the saga showing how the superstar coach who preaches core values like honesty, treating women with respect and not using drugs or stealing failed to live up to those ideals when handling several issues squarely within his control while dealing with the grandson of legendary Ohio State coach Earle Bruce. Ohio State issued Meyer a relatively light three game suspension granting enough leeway to still let him prep the Buckeyes for two games. He will also lose six weeks of salary in a year hes slated to earn $7.6 million under a deal that runs through 2022. Do I think 73-8 (Meyers record at Ohio State) had something to do with it? former UCLA coach and CBS analysts Rick Neuheisel said of Meyers punishment. The answer is yes. The answer is absolutely. The rules are not the same for everybody. Thats no secret. The fact that Urban has been so good in terms of win-loss over the years certainly played in. Meanwhile, his football team was back at practice without him on Thursday, preparing for the opener against Oregon State on Sept. 1. Co-offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Ryan Day will continue to coach the team during Meyers absence. An Ohio State spokesman on Thursday declined to expand on the contents of investigative report, referring The Associated Press back to comments made by Meyer and others at the news conference Wednesday night.

The Indians look to keep the momentum rolling when the games officially count, starting in tonights season opener at Suwannee. Fort Whites football team didnt have much time to celebrate the blowout victory. The Indians wasted no time getting back to work this week, turning their attention to the Suwannee Bulldogs, who are looking for their first win in the series since 2015. We got over that on Monday, Fort White head coach Demetric Jackson said. [We] saw on film that Trenton would struggle. We talked about that, how that game doesnt count.

Lightning, bad weather postpones Columbia-Gainesville season openerBy JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comGAINESVILLE Thursday night football? More like Thursday night lightning. Columbias season opener with Gainesville was postponed Thursday night due to lightning in the area with the Tigers leading 14-7 with 2:38 to go in the first quarter at Citizens Field. No decision was made for when game will be picked up but both schools talked to the FHSAA and will meet Friday to set a date, possibly for Saturday. The location of the game is also to be determined. The teams cant play Friday night at Citizens Field because Buchholz and Eastside are scheduled to face off there at 7:30. The Tigers took the lead when quarterback Jordan Smith connected with receiver Marquez Bell for an 18-yard touchdown with 4:10 to go in the quarter. The Hurricanes held an early 7-0 advantage when they drove down the field on the games opening drive and quarterback Luke Matthews hit Jalen Kelsey for a 34-yard touchdown. Kelsey caught three passes for 72 yards on the drive. Columbia answered right back on its first drive, marching 77 yards in eight plays to tie the game. Smith kept the ball on the option and leapt into the left side of the end zone over multiple defenders with 6:19 on the clock to knot things at 7-7. Smith was 7/8 for 116 yards on Columbias two drives. Four-star prospect TJ Jones also caught three passes for 32 yards. Matthews was 6/8 for 100 yards for the Hurricanes.

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married 25 years. I was 19 and he was 28. Among a number of things we disagree about, theres the notion that he feels I should have zero privacy. If he finds out I locked the bathroom door or the bedroom door for five minutes to get something private done, like shave or use the potty, he freaks out and yells at me. He insists that hes the husband and I shouldnt feel the need to lock him out. This morning I locked the bedroom door for less than 10 minutes to pack my bag for a flight. I was running late and wanted to eliminate the distraction of him going in and out of the room so I could finish quickly. He flipped out, calling me rude for making him feel like he is a pervert by locking the door. In the nicest way possible I had asked him when he came to the door if he would please let me have the room until I was done packing. Dont I have the right to lock the door if I feel I need privacy, or is he right that theres no need for privacy from a husband? I hardly get five or 10 minutes a month of it. We have a large home with four other bath rooms. It isnt a lack-ofspace thing. Please help me resolve this. -ITS PERSONAL, IN NEW YORK DEAR ITS PERSONAL: Everyone needs privacy at one time or another. Because someone is married does not mean she (or he) shouldnt have the right to some -especially when using the bathroom. Your husband is either extremely controlling or doesnt trust you to be alone, and thats not healthy. Whats causing his behavior I cant guess, but a licensed mental health professional may be able to help you figure it out. If he wont agree to go, go without him. DEAR ABBY: I am a 28-year-old man with a serious drinking problem. I function normally at work, but I have no real life outside of work or drinking. I tried AA, but didnt feel comfortable in an organization that emphasizes God as part of the path to sobriety. I am desperate to find a way to recover, but I feel helpless. Please point me in the right direction. -ADDICTED IN KANSAS CITY, MO. DEAR ADDICTED: Because, for the reason you stated, Alcoholics Anonymous isnt for you, Im glad to offer secular alternatives. The first is SMART Recovery, a four-point program that encourages motivation to abstain and provides help in coping with cravings, managing negative emotions and finding a healthy life balance. SMART Recovery offers face-to-face support groups worldwide as well as online meetings. Its goal, like AA, is lifetime abstinence, and its meetings and help are also free.

She likes wearing flannel shirts, black leggings or jeans everywhere, especially to school, because they are comfortable. Sometimes she even wears sweatpants and a T-shirt. Our stepmom tells her she looks like a lesbian and that she gets one day out of the school week to dress like a slob, and the rest of the days she has to dress nice. By nice she means an outfit that looks cute by her standards. It means no lesbian-looking flannels and, instead, a lacy blouse or a patterned top. Cheryl argues that shes just going to school, a lot of other kids dress that way and nobody cares. My stepmom argues that she cares, and she thinks the way Cheryl looks at school is a reflection on her (my stepmom), which makes her look bad. My dad doesnt say anything because hes low-key and agrees with her, but he isnt as vocal or mean about it. My sister doesnt like being called a lesbian, and it makes me really mad, but my stepmom is mean and will find some way to ground me out of spite if I argue with her about it. What do I do? -DONT WANT TO ARGUE DEAR DONT WANT TO ARGUE: Your stepmother appears to be a homophobe. The only way your sisters attire could reflect on your stepmother would be if she went to school unwashed and wearing soiled, tattered clothing. Not all lesbians dress in the same style; some are very feminine. If Cheryl were a lesbian, it would be nothing to be ashamed of. Children who are called names and bullied as your stepmother is doing can become depressed to the point of self-harm or risky behavior. Because you are afraid you will be punished if you speak up, find a teacher or counselor at school you can confide in about whats going on. Your parents could benefit from an intervention -and so could Cheryl. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Make plans to do something you enjoy with someone you love. Love and romance are highlighted.

The Indians have won the last two meetings by a combined seven-point margin, barely escaping with wins, and it could be another tight one tonight in Live Oak. Ill say this about Suwannee, they seem to be more disciplined on defense, Jackson said after reviewing film. And they run to the ball. Theyre pretty vanilla in what they do [formation-wise]They dont a lot of things, but what they do, they do it well. They play physical and run to the ball on defense. After a top-notch performance last week, the Indians defense gears up for tougher battle this week. Fort White will be tasked with slowing down Suwannees two-quarterback system which features returner Tyree Taylor and Jaquez Moore. The Bulldogs offense is led by last years leading rusher senior back C.J. Hall. Fort White is up for the challenge, ready to embark on a new campaign. Last week is over.

So I knew he wasnt going to get fired and I knew that they werent going to keep him off the field for too long. For some, the punishment wont be enough.

By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comThe swimming Tigers are back in the water for what they hope will be a strong campaign in 2018. Columbias swim team, boys and girls, returns with lofty goals in mind as the group aims to make some noise among area teams this season. Hopefully (we) get further and be stronger than we were last year, Columbia coach Courtney Johns said. So far on both (teams) were looking pretty good. Columbias boys team brings back several of its standout swimmers including Chandler Smith, Evan Conklin and Brendan Short each were apart of the 200 medley team that reached regionals last year. Those three are expected to anchor the boys squad again as they try to shave personal bests and get back to regionals. Columbias girls team also looks build on its rebuilding season last year. The Lady Tigers will have plenty of help from returning stars in Carlie Barshay, Ally Mitchell and Mackenzie Conklin. Johns, a second-year coach, believes the girls team could have a solid supporting cast of newbies and freshman girls as well. Both the boys and girls, though, will have their work cut out for them in competitive District 2. For many of the swimmers, getting to regionals is the ultimate goal, but Johns says its difficult to set the bar so high with the amount of talent within the region. It changes year to year, you never know what to expect, Johns said. You lose some seniors, so theres some spots where people could slide up in regionals but you also gain freshmen. And you never whether theyre club swimmers or not, based on their experience. They could be just as fast as people who (left) the program Regionals could be a lot faster or slowerFlorida is just extremely competitive because we have so many swimmers. But Im sure the (swimmers) who did well last year will continue to do well. And the ones that started to progress (last year), I hope will continue that this year and exceed where they ended last year.

CHS starters won 33-20.CHS FOOTBALLBy ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comLast years exit in the first round of the playoffs didnt sit well the Tigers. Columbia is back this season to prove its team should be regarded as one of the states best. The Tigers return to the field loaded with talent and high expectations for the 2018 season. Columbia aims to capture its first state title in 51 years. The Tigers are more than confident they can accomplish their lofty goal come playoff time. A win over top-ranked IMG Academy in the preseason classic fueled that notion more. That was just a sneakpeek, wide receiver Bobby Fulton said after the game. I feel like were not where we want to be, but were pretty good starting off. That should wake some people up and show them what we got this year. We put it out on the field. Columbia looks to turn heads across the state with its high-powered offense. The unit is led by junior quarterback Jordan Smith, whos coming off a breakout season last year. Smith could rewrite the record books with a star-studded receiving corps, which includes four-star prospect TJ Jones, Marquez Bell, Jaden Williams, Lanadrick Bradley and Fulton. The Tigers also return junior running back Kylen Callum, whos poised for a big season, now plugged as the teams starter. Both Columbias offense and defense have challenged each other during practice, adding to the fierce competition the team endures on the week-to-week basis. It prepares us well because were not going to see an offense like ours, linebacker Jaylen Brown said. With the receivers we have, and the offensive line we have, we arent going to see a special offense like that. So when we play other teams, theyre going to have a really hard time. Columbia brings a retooled defensive unit to the field in 2018. The Tigers poised to have Brown back in the lineup after missing most of the last season with a shoulder injury. Hell bolster a linebacker group that includes Marlon Pollock and Ethan Umstead. The Tigers secondary is also expected to be far improved this season as last years newcomers enter the new campaign with added experience in several areas. Last year, we knew wed be down defensively, and in certain areas it showed up. Guys have matured now and are a year older (and) are doing things way better. Its how its supposed to work in high school. When you have a team full of sophomores, some juniors and seniors here in there youre going to take your bumps and bruises.

4C F RIDAY, AUGUST 24, 2018 FALL SPORTS PREVIEW LAKE CITY REPORTER FWHS VOLLEYBALLIndians in rebuild mode under new coachBy JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE A new coach and a new attitude. Fort Whites volleyball team is looking to make a jump in 2018. Under the tutelage of new head coach Deanna Conner, the Lady Indians believe they can improve upon last seasons 5-12 season and their last-place tie in District 4-5A. Conner replaced Kali Hunter, who stepped down after three seasons, and has instilled a new culture in the gym that she hopes will leads to more wins. I think the girls are really starting to unite and come together now that cuts have been made, Conner said. I think theyre going to jump. I think theyll jump quick because Ive kind of backed them up and started them all on the same territory. Theyre just going up from here. Theyre starting to jump, theyre gelling, moving together and getting transitions down because thats something they really didnt have when they started. Fort White will count on the likes of Rachael Steedley, Andrea Steedley, Paige Dingos, Aubrey Callum and Calista Avery. Rachel Steedley has settled in as the teams setter while Conner says the other four will all be hitters for the Lady Indians. But Conner says hes seen improvement throughout training camp from everyone on the roster, which also includes Kaelyn Locklear, Mariah Locklear, Rachel Morrison, Adrielle Plasencia and Paige Dinges. Conner is still deciding who will play where as shes been cross-training them to be multi-purpose players in a 6-2 rotation. Weve changed a lot, Conner said. Weve changed our rotation so theyre heaving to learn a new rotation. Theres a lot of movement so theyre catching on very quickly to that and just kind of evolving their skills. As for the teams libero, Conner isnt quite sure who will take the position quite yet. She says she even go without on early in the season but she believes working them in different positions will make the Lady Indians more diverse this season. Some of the girls fell into their little niche so I still have one or two up in the air with who is going to be where, but I have a lot that Im trying to make them as versatile as I can, Conner said. Fort White took part in skills and specialized hitting clinics this summer and also scrimmaged against multiple teams that included Newberry, Columbia, Trenton, Bell and Gainesville. Although Conner believes teams didnt show all their cards in the scrimmages, she was impressed with the Lady Indians against all those teams as well as during the clinics. It wont be easy getting through Bradford, Interlachen, Keystone Heights, Newberry and Taylor in District 4-5A, but if training camp is any indication, its that the Lady Indians are ready to fight every night in 2018. Their goal is to win more games this season and see what kind of leap they can take as they continue to improve on the fly. Ive definitely seen us play really well in scrimmages and Ive seen where they got lost so weve really been hammering on that, Conner said. I dont ever want to go backwards. We were there, you got confused, we fixed it and learned it, dont go back there. Were always adding to them. Weve played good teams that we wont be playing this year at all so the girls did get some experience with potential hard hits coming their way, how to better get ahold of them and just a lot of fine-tuning and just putting it together. Theyve all just grown so much and evolved with all the different clinics Ive had them go through this summer and theyve just really fine-tuned and theyre all stepping up really, Conner said.

The season is underway as both teams opened the campaign with solid starts. Columbias boys team began the season with a narrow win over Suwannee (166-169) while the girls team (205) fell short in a valiant effort against Buchholz (201) and Ponte Vedra (169). Despite the opening day loss, the Lady Tigers like their chances this season with several new names on the scorecard this year. Im pretty excited about everyone, Columbia coach Todd Carter said. Buchholz shouldve got beatenWe got a pretty good squad this year, they all have a really good time. Theyre good kids. Columbias girls team is led by regional finalist Tiara Carter, whos aiming for her first state final appearance in her final season. Carter will be joined by Emma Ward, Reece Chasteen, Erika Lloyd, Payton Gainey, Kayla Hardy. Theyll need all hands on deck as the Lady Tigers enter a new league (District 2-3A ) in 2018. I think its going to be pretty easy, Carter said. We got a good chance of going to state as a team. Tiaras goal is to make it individually, but they way it looks, with Buchholz not being as tough, we have a good chance of going to state as a team. Columbias boys retake the links led by Lance Minson, who reached regionals last season. Minson will be joined this season by returner Cameron Widergren, Ty Folson, Dylan Cannon, Zach Shaw and Chas Cribbs. The Tigers also look to reach regionals as a team this year. New boys coach Shayne Barber is taking over for Krishton Neeley this season. Barber, younger brother of PGA golfer Blayne Barber, says the team has looked good thus far.

8C FRIDAY, AUGUST 24, 2018 FALL SPORTS PREVIEW LAKE CITY REPORTER Serving all Lady TigersCHS VOLLEYBALLBy ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comLoaded with new talent and fresh faces, the Lady Tigers are ready to dive into the 2018 season. Columbias volleyball team returns to the court hoping to build on last years season when the squad came just shy of reaching the District 4 title game. Columbia enters the 2018 season with little experience after graduating a handful of seniors this spring. With just three returning players, the Lady Tigers expect to lean on a new, young supporting cast made up of mostly junior varsity call-ups. Were young, with one senior, Columbia coach Trudy Andrews said. But you know what, every single day that theyve stepped in the gym they have brought hunger and heart and hustle, just enthusiastic to get better. So theyre working extremely hard. Were working on strengths and to keep building on top of that. Columbias returning varsity players Erica Faulkner, Maddie Walker, JC Styles have already shown signs of leadership over the course of summer workouts and fall practice. Those players will be counted on if the Lady Tigers hope to make a run at the district tournament in October. Faulkner, especially, whos expected to anchor the squad without Mikayla Collins, a standout from last years team who sitting out the season to prepare for college. She plays club and brings a lot of knowledge and teamwork, Andrews said of Faulkner. Theyve already started a lot of different things, building (chemistry). Its neat. We have a young team but we have all these girls coming togetherTheyve already started playing and meshing well. Its all starting to come together. Its fun. Like usual, wins wont come easy in District 4, a league composed of Gainesville, Ocala-Forest, Vanguard and Lake Weir. After winning just two district games last season, Columbia a potential sleeper team looks to improve on its win total. Our goal is to be extremely competitive and take sets we believe we should take, Andrews said. Thats what were going to shoot for. Were just unfortunate to have three powerhouses in our district. And thats OK, were going to give it everything we got. Columbias Avona Randolp puts a shot over the net during the Purple & Gold game.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 24, 2018 FALL SPORTS PREVIEW LAKE CITY REPORTER 9C FWHS GOLFTeeing off under new leadershipBy JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comWith two players transferring to Columbia and top golfer Sammy Service graduating, there was some concern at Fort White that there wouldnt be a golf team this season. It wasnt even until last week that the Lady Indians knew they had enough players. But after a team meeting last Thursday with new head coach Rachelle Lee, three new golfers joined returner Sydney Jones on the team for 2018. Jones is joined by her sister Jackie Adler, Angel Rhodes and Aubrey Tanzosh. With four golfers, Fort White will be able to compete as a team in District 7-1A with Bell, Branford, Chiefland, Newberry Trenton and Union County. It was definitely a relief for me to have a full team, Lee said. I really wanted them to have that full experience, not just to have individuals but to have them work as a team, and to know that their best is also affecting them and others. Its a different aspect when youre on a team than when youre just doing the best to your ability because youre an individual player. Fort White is coming off of its inaugural season where it finished as the district runner-up under then head coach Tammy Richards, who stepped down in June to become the assistant at Columbia. Richards took her two daughters Peyton and Karlee Gainey with her as she prepares to take over for head coach Todd Carter next season. Thats left Lee with a lot of inexperienced golfers but shes looking forward to the challenge. Lee took the job because Fort White couldnt find a coach and she didnt want the program to fold after just one season. Lee has a golf background thanks to her family. She never played in high school due to being homeschooled but shes always been around the game thanks to her mother Silvia Lee and her grandfather Robert Madison, who were both big golfers when she was growing up. My approach is to have them have fun. I think that if they have fun theyll have a good time and theyll do better, Lee said. Jones was only Fort Whites No. 4 golfer last season but shell be counted on the lead the team this season. Adler, a junior, is the only other golfer with an experience on the team. Tanzosh is only in middle school while Rhodes is a junior, but both will have to learn quickly on the fly if Fort White is to return to the regional tournament. Lee said Rhodes had never even picked up a golf club before their first practice this week. It will also be a learning experience for Lee, who has never coached before. She is still finalizing a schedule and getting to know her players, who she believes will be good golfers by the time the district tournament rolls around in October. My expectations are that were going to go out and have fun and they are going to do the best to their ability and I think theyll be good. I think well have good golfers this year, Lee said.

10C F RIDAY, AUGUST 24, 2018 FALL SPORTS PREVIEW LAKE CITY REPORTER Indians aim high in 2018FWHS FOOTBALLBy JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comTheres a third starting quarterback in as many years but that hasnt lowered expectations at Fort White. The Indians benefited from a senior transfer a year ago in Hunter Morgan and should again in 2018, welcoming former Columbia starting quarterback Dylan Blair under center. Quarterback appeared to the be the missing piece in the spring, as Fort White returned several starters but tried to move running back Brayden Summers under center. With Blair now in the fold and Summers back in the backfield, the Indians look to build upon last seasons 7-4 mark, which ended with a first-round playoff loss to Florida State. Blair isnt the only transfer that will benefit Fort White either. Cornerback Donovan Jenkins comes in from Gainesville and is expected to be the teams top corner while Daniel Connelly will start on the offensive line after transferring in. Kobie Archer also transferred from Chiefland and will start at linebacker. Fort White has more depth than its had in years and wont have any two-way starters this season, which should keep them fueled late in ball games. We felt without those guys we could make the playoffs, Fort White coach Demetric Jackson said. Theres nine teams in the region and six make the playoffs and with the bulk of our team returning, we felt we could still get to the playoffs. But now with those additions and not having to have any guys play both ways, if we stay healthy we think we can possibly win it all. Blairs adjustment to a new team has been aided by an experience at multiple positions. In addition to Connelly, the Indians return three starters on the offensive line in Matt DiMauro, JJ Calhoun and Deckland. The biggest loss was FAU signee left tackle Doug Johnson, who has been replaced by junior Andrew Timmsen. But the along with Summers, Stanley Maxwell also returns at running back after finishing second on the team in rushing yards a season ago with 498. Its made my life a lot easier, Blair said. With them knowing what they were doing, it made it a lot easier. Maxwell, along with Summers, will be counted on immensely this season. Along with the loss of leading rusher Jacquez Pelham, who graduated, the Indians will also be without four-year varsity back Corey Dryden after he tore his ACL at a camp this summer. But Blairs ability to throw the ball down the field should provide Fort White a balanced offensive attack it hasnt had in years. Hell have plenty of options at receiver to throw to, which includes returning starter Rahman Paul, Kanell Stewart (who was second on the team in receiving yards last year) and Deondre Cray, all of whom are seniors. Were going to give him the best protection that he needs and hes going to sit in the pocket all day and make the passes he needs to to take this team all the way to the top, DiMauro said. Jackson says the offense has plenty to prove. Not only are Pelham and Dryden gone but last years leading receiver Javiel Jones graduated as well. I really want to see what our receivers can do and what our running backs can do. Theyre kind of the guys that have got something to prove, Jackson said. They havent played a whole lot so hopefully this will give them an opportunity to see what they can do. Jackson doesnt expect a drop off from his defense, despite defensive lineman Lowell Reed. Connellys arrival on offense allows Jaquon Robinson to play strictly on the defensive line and Archers presence solidified a linebacking corp with Kameron Calhoun, who Jackson says has the potential to be one of the schools best. Jenkins will provide a huge boost to Fort Whites defense. The secondary was considered the weak spot of the unit before Jenkins arrival but he now helps solidify all three levels of the defense. Safety Terrance Jones will also be a key cog in the backend of the defense. Even with the loss of Dryden, who would have also started at defensive end prior to his injury, Jackson believes the sky is the limit for the Indians. This was one of the hardest groups to coach two years ago. They were so immature and just didnt want it but weve seen the biggest growth from them between two years ago to now, particularly our juniors, Jackson said. Theyve shown a lot of growth. Thats whats promising. FILE PHOTOSFort White quarterback Dylan Blair takes a snap during practice this summer.

F RIDAY, AUGUST 24, 2018 FALL SPORTS PREVIEW LAKE CITY REPORTER 11 C New names, same expectationsCHS CROSS COUNTRYBy JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comBig names are gone but expectations havent changed for Columbias cross country teams. Especially the boys. Top runner Yassin Raffay has graduated but head coach Shelli Shoup believes she has a group of boys that can finally get over the hump and advance to regionals as a team after missing out by just a few points in 2017. With the times and miles they put in over the summer, I can foresee us making it to regions for the first time in a long time, Shoup said. Burch Greene is expected to be the boys top runner after a solid 2017 campaign that included a top-10 finish at districts to qualify for regionals as an individual. The rest of Columbias seven runners are expected to include Juan Resendiz, AJ Kihei, Seth Ziegaus, Alex McCollum, Zhaquon Griffin and Carson Candler. Making it to regionals as a team certainly wont be easy in the tough District 3-3A. The Tigers finished fifth last year and must overcome the likes of Chiles, Stanton, Leon and Lincoln in 2018 to try and grab a top-3 finish as a team. We actually need our top five kids to come together and all improve, Shoup said. We have some very competitive times for what weve had at Columbia High School in the past but when you throw their times into the mix with other schools from our district and our region, we are still a minute or two away from being able to get to that state level. Were going to need them to pack run and really close that gap in as a core five. I keep trying to preach to them that its not about what our fastest kid can do, its about our top five and top seven can do so we can keep our scores as low as possible.

Beiter has immediately taken over the top spot on the team, training hard over the summer with impressive numbers in her time trials. Shes back and when I say backshe sent me a sub-20 time for mid-summer, which is phenomenal, Shoup said. We didnt have any girl even close to 20 last year except for Bridget and she struggled to get sub-20, so we are very excited about her level going into the season. She is faster than where most of our girls finished last year. McKenzie Conklin will continue to run and swim for Columbia and should put up the second fastest times for Shoup. Suzannah Raines and Sarah Beth-John have also developed a nice relationship on the track for the Lady Tigers as their Nos. 3 and 4, with Rhiannon Mattingly running for the first time as a senior to round out the teams top five. Shoup says a handful of girls will fight for the teams last two official spots. Team expectations are a bit tempered for the girls, who also finished fifth in the district last season. Morse was the only girl to qualify for regionals in 2017. We can get to regionals if we can get our numbers down. If not, I feel very confident that my top three can advance as individuals possibly, Shoup said. I really look for Abbrielle and McKenzie to be able to make it all the way to state as individuals, even if we cant make it as a team.TIGERSContinued from 11C FILE PHOTOSCHS cross country head coach Shelli Shoup stands alongside key returner Mackenzie Conklin (right) during a meet last season.
