Those words an invitation by one interpretation, a threat by another brought tensions to a peak in a standoff between Lake City Councilman Jake Hill and Assistant City Manager Paul Dyal. The fallout for Dyal came Tuesday, in the form of a written reprimand made public Friday. City official reprimanded for responding to what he took as a threat from councilman. Hill DyalPrecinct consolidation felt by voters: Williams By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comWith just two days remaining before the primary election and early voting now a memory, complaints about local polling sites are beginning to pile up like cord wood from politicians and voters alike. From concerns over a voting precinct housed in a portable building located in a pasture, to voters having to travel about 20 minutes to cast ballots, some residents are complaining about what they consider slights by the supervisor of elections office. Ron Williams, Columbia County District 1 commissioner, said hes received complaints from voters living in District 1, after Supervisor of Elections Liz Horne decided to close the Deep Creek polling site and combine it with the Winfield site. Williams said he has an issue with the distance some District 1 voters have to travel to the polling sites to cast ballots.

weeks ago from doctors her procedures would be more intensive due to the extent of her wounds. She had her fourth surgery yesterday (Thursday), said Jones. She is healing beyond what I could hope for. God really is showing up and blessing us. Watts told law enforcement an ex-boyfriend and father to one of her children intentionally set her on fire late night on Aug. 2, while she was outside smoking a cigarette. He then allegedly retreated through the woods behind her 189th Place residence in Suwannee County. Suwannee sheriffs officials said the man accused of setting her on fire, Philip Pettey, 28, continues to deny he did it. Pettey was arrested at his 221st Road residence roughly 14 miles from Watts home and booked into jail around 2 a.m. on Aug. 3. for aggravated battery and released on $25,000 bond the same day, jail records show. With Petteys denial, Suwannee County Sheriff Sam St. John said the case would now play out before the court. In 2015 Pettey pleaded guilty to loitering and prowling along with resisting an officer without violence and criminal mischief, according Marion County court records. A fellow church member of Watts started a GoFundMe page for the familys expenses, www. gofundme.com/kayla-watts.

Thanks for reading.During an Aug. 8 budget meeting, Hill asked why the city needed two assistant city managers, referencing Dyal and Grayson Cason. Is that cost, costing the city more? Hill asked. Dyal was the utilities chief before former City Manager Wendell Johnson gave him the promotion, which Finance Director Donna Duncan said did not come with a raise. Duncan said she was unsure about Johnsons reasoning for the promotion. Hill asked staff to look at that. Newly hired City Manager Joe Helfenberger said hed come back with a report. Dyal responded from the audience with indifference, kicking off the back-andforth. Yall can restructure however you all want it, Dyal said. Of course we can, Hill responded. Dyal requested to make a statement, asking Helfenberger if the topic was still the budget. Hill interjected. The question had to do with the budget, Hill said. I just asked, again I just asked a question. Hills tone and volume elicited a reaction. Ah now, wait a minute now, Mr. Hill, Dyal responded. Im the type of person you can sit here and have a conversation with me. But Im not Wendell Johnson, dont raise your voice to me. Well again, again, aint nothing in between us but air and opportunity, Hill said, a line from the 2000 version of the movie Shaft. Thats right, Dyal said. And if you feel like you want some, come on and get it, Hill said. Council member Melinda Moses let out an oh my as the argument continued. Are you threatening me? Dyal asked. Moses tried to jump in. We dont need to go there, she chimed in. But the dispute kept going. No, I aint threatening you, Hill said. Helfenbergers first attempt to take control of the conversation was promptly interrupted by Dyal. It sounds like hes threatening me, Dyal said. Helfenberger again tried to shift the focus back to the budget, but Dyal continued. I dont need to work somewhere where theyre going to threaten me, Dyal said. Nobody threatened anybody, Helfenberger said. He did, Dyal said. That mean you resigning? Hill asked. You call can fire me and pay severance if you want to, Dyal said, knocking over a chair and storming out of the meeting. In a written reprimand on Tuesday, Helfenberger told Dyal that the interaction at the meeting was alright at first, but Dyal escalated it when he told Hill not to raise his voice to him. Hill took that quote to be a challenge, Helfenberger wrote. Once you defended yourself, you needed to be silent on the subject and address the matter with me after the meeting, Helfenberger wrote. You already know there is tension between Mr. Hill and you from the past. Knocking over the chair and abruptly leaving the meeting, which Dyal was required to attend, was unacceptable behavior, Helfenberger wrote. If this happens again, further action will be taken, Helfenberger wrote. The reprimand also chastises Dyal for not immediately bringing a problem with the Kicklighter wastewater facilitys elevation level to Helfenbergers attention. The facility was built about two-and-a-half-feet too low, Helfenberger told the Lake City Reporter. There could be some additional costs to the city that it might not have otherwise incurred for proper damage, he said. And there could be potential additional maintenance costs. Helfenberger said hes investigating the issue to find out how significant the costs might be. Its a big enough issue that I needed to know immediately, he said. Dyal declined comment, citing city protocols. Hill said Dyals actions during the meeting were not acceptable. The tension goes back about a year, Hill said, claiming that it stems from Dyals inability to act professionally and tendency to take everything personally. He has a problem if I question anything that goes on in his department, Hill said.City dust-up ends in reprimand CITYContinued From 1AAnd if you feel like you want some, come on and get it, Hill said. Council member Melinda Moses let out an oh my as the argument continued. John McCain, war hero, dies at age 81 WASHINGTON Sen. John McCain, who faced down his captors in a Vietnam prisoner of war camp with jut-jawed defiance and later turned his rebellious streak into a 35-year political career that took him to Congress and the Republican presidential nomination, died Saturday after battling brain cancer for more than a year. He was 81. McCain, with his irascible grin and fighter-pilot moxie, was a fearless and outspoken voice on policy and politics to the end, unswerving in his defense of democratic values and unflinching in his criticism of his fellow Republican, President Donald Trump. He was elected to the Senate from Arizona six times but twice thwarted in seeking the presidency. An upstart presidential bid in 2000 didnt last long. Eight years later, he fought back from the brink of defeat to win the GOP nomination, only to be overpowered by Democrat Barack Obama. McCain chose a little-known Alaska governor as his running mate in that race, and turned Sarah Palin into a national political figure. After losing to Obama in an electoral landslide, McCain returned to the Senate determined not to be defined by a failed presidential campaign in which his reputation as a maverick had faded. In the politics of the moment and in national political debate over the decades, McCain energetically advanced his ideas and punched back hard at critics Trump not least among them. The scion of a decorated military family, McCain embraced his role as chairman of the Armed Services Committee, pushing for aggressive U.S. military intervention overseas and eager to contribute to defeating the forces of radical Islam that want to destroy America. Asked how he wanted to be remembered, McCain said simply: That I made a major contribution to the defense of the nation. One dramatic vote he cast in the twilight of his career in 2017 will not soon be forgotten, either: As the decisive no on Senate GOP legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act, McCain became the unlikely savior of Obamas trademark legislative achievement. Taking a long look back in his valedictory memoir, The Restless Wave, McCain wrote of the world he inhabited: I hate to leave it. But I dont have a complaint. Not one. Its been quite a ride. Ive known great passions, seen amazing wonders, fought in a war, and helped make a peace. ... I made a small place for myself in the story of America and the history of my times. Throughout his long tenure in Congress, McCain played his role with trademark verve, at one hearing dismissing a protester by calling out, Get out of here, you low-life scum. But it was just as notable when he held his sharp tongue, in service of a party or political gain. McCain followed his father and grandfather, the Navys first father-and-son set of four-star admirals, to the Naval Academy in 1954. Associated Press BURNSContinued From 1A McCain

LETS TALK TODAY. Chelsea Flores, Agent 4818 W Us Highway 90 Lake City, FL 32055 Bus: 386-438-5583 Cell: 386-209-2177 firstname.lastname@example.org Monday Friday 9am 5 pm Weekends by Appointment After-hours by Appointment as fall nears and their search begins for more food before winter. Florida Wildlife Commission reports the state managed native species will try to quadruple its caloric intake from roughly 5,000 to 20,000 calories of food per day as seasons begin to change. Were coming up on fall its not fall yet, but as fall approaches theyre going to become more and more inactive, Regional Public Information Officer Karen Parker said. Even though they dont go into true hibernation they do get lethargic. Parker explained that black bear lethargy has to be preceded by a drastic body mass increase to account for the scarcity of approaching winter month food supplies. Theyre really trying to pack on the pounds, Parker said. Just like their Northern brethren. Despite daily temperatures reaching into the nineties, the bears will instinctively prepare for decreased food sources by seeking out the easiest things they can to eat. The FWC states the actions of residents are crucial this time of year, just as in the springtime, to keep bears at bay and make life better for both man and his mammal neighbor. Even though youre done cooking on that barbecue grill, they can still smell the steak you cooked last week, Parker said. She said the bears have one of the keenest senses of smell of all species greater than that of a dog. In May a black bear was spotted in Lake City, prompting local police to put out advisories to the public and a brief search by officers that turned up empty-handed. Thats always a problem with bears in urban areas, if theres a readily available food source theyre going to stay, Parker said, and then offered a solution. Pick up the attractant if you can attract smaller animals like raccoons you can attract bears. With upwards of 500 or so bears in the Osceola region, FWC says securing trash and food sources is imperative. It prompted the agency to coin a motto for a program: A fed bear is a dead bear. Stash that trash, scare that bear. Parker said it takes a neighborhood-wide effort to ensure food sources are inaccessible, and added it is also against the law to feed bears.Bears padding their diet for winter BEARSContinued From 1A A mother bear and her cubs are pictured courtesy a game camera in Columbia County.COURTESY PHOTOSA black bear is seen in an image captured by a game camera earlier this month in Columbia County.

To the Editor: Merriam-Websters Dictionary defines political conservatism as a philosophy calling for lower taxes, limited government regulation of business and investing, a strong national defense and individual financial responsibility. My friend Marc Vann is a true conservative. While serving together on the Lake Shore Hospital Authority, I observed these same conservative qualities during his chairmanship. Marc was instrumental in proposing a more than thirty-three percent (33%) reduction in the millage rate charged to the citizens of Columbia County. This reduction has ultimately saved Columbia County taxpayers almost $1.5 million dollars while still providing quality care to Columbia Countys most needy. Marc Vanns conservative qualities are not limited as I have witnessed he and his brothers business leadership through a few economic crises. Marc Vanns business experience and acumen is second to none in this community and is reflected in Vann Carpet Ones unparalleled customer service and product quality. I am sure that many of you have experienced Marcs professionalism in business and you can rest assured Marc Vann will provide the same as he fights for you in the State Legislature. I have watched Marc experience some tough trials and tribulations and as I look back, it looked like some would overwhelm him. Watching him go through them I saw a person who placed his trust in God and refused to waiver. I am certain that the decisions made on our behalf in Tallahassee will be made through this same faithful trust. Our district has had great representation in Tallahassee in Elizabeth Porter and as North Floridians we cannot afford to lose the voice she and others have established for us in the State Legislature. There is too much at stake, our economic stability, our springs, our North Florida way of life. Cutting through all the political rhetoric, sifting through all the political mail, deleting all the robocalls, overlooking all the political litter one thing is evident. We need, no, we must have someone who has the business experience, a proven record of cutting taxes, a strong faith in God and family and someone who will, from day one, STAND UP for North Florida. It is my honor to ask you to vote for and support my friend, Marc Vann for State Representative. You will be glad you did! Koby Adams Lake CityLudy Shipp was a surprise winner in a county commissioners race several years ago and some voters felt the turning point in the race happened in an exchange between the two opponents at a political rally in Lulu. The first speaker, the incumbent, referring to his long political experience, told the crowd he had grown up on a farm and his daddy had always told him that if you had a good, dependable, hardworking horse, to hold on to him. Ludy spoke next and said he had grown up on a farm, too, and his daddy had told him if you had a sorry, worthless jackass, you run him off and get a new one. The large crowd roared with laughter and applause and many thought that moment swung the vote and Ludy won in a landslide. More on local political history. Ike Moses was a popular constable but people didnt know how popular he was until seven opponents ran against him and he got more votes in the first primary than all the seven put together. Tom Davis once won a School Board position when he said his opponent was blind to the issues, that even a puppy opened its eyes in two weeks, and his opponents eyes were still closed to his constituents needs after 4 years in office. Buford Galloway defeated Albert Rumph by four votes in one election for school superintendent. Afterward, Buford said families of four or more came to his office, wanting something, and said if our family hadnt voted for you, you wouldnt be sitting in that chair. In one sheriffs election a man said he was torn as to who to vote for, that one candidate was married to his first cousin and the other mans mother was his own mothers lifelong friend. In times before mass media, candidates stumping for state or national office regularly came to town to speak. Gubernatorial candidates like Spessard Holland, Millard Caldwell, and Fuller Warren came. U.S. Senate candidates like Claude Pepper and George Smathers came. Even presidential candidates came: Adlai Stevenson, George Wallace, Alexander Haig, Jesse Jackson, Richard Russell, and Strom Thurmond came. Back in the day, election results would be hand painted on the front window of the Lake City Reporter. People by the hundreds would turn out to watch the returns come in. The painter had to have special skills of artistry as he had to write all the names and numbers backwards from the inside so the people outside could read them correctly. One of the richest parts of our political history is the record of the first black citizens to run for public and those who successfully did so. Some were Ron Williams, Bettye Lane, Richard Anders, Henry Harrison, Linard Johnson, Henry Harrison, Sonny Clark, Glenel Bowden, and many others. But Ludy Shipp, with his unique way of speaking and his self-described working mans hands, calloused and deeply wrinkled, is one of the most memorable of them all.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINION Ludy Shipps jackass story LETTERS TO THE EDITORClean house at City HallThe Lake City Council came that close to blowing $300,000 it wasnt obligated to on the Blanche Hotel, the citys point man on the project told our reporter Tuesday, holding his forefinger and thumb two inches apart as he spoke. Only the intervention of new City Manager Joe Helfenberger and/or city attorney Fred Koberlein who caught it first isnt clear kept that money from going to developer IDP for something the city doesnt owe. IDP says it had a verbal contract with former City Manager Wendell Johnson to do the work, though Johnson must surely have known the money wasnt his to spend. The contract itself clearly states that any verbal agreement that would alter it is disallowed. And Johnson wasnt authorized to make a side deal such as this to begin with. Nonetheless, the city nearly paid almost a third of a million dollars to bury utilities on Columbia Avenue for the project, not just on Veterans Street, as required. Something still stinks at City Hall, and we urge Helfenberger to get to the bottom of it, then clean house. What weve seen unfold there in recent weeks is unacceptable, even by the uniformly low standard that city officials, appointed and elected alike, have come to accept. One last note. When we uncovered this fiscal near-miss, Assistant City Manager Grayson Cason asked our reporter, in apparent seriousness, why we were so interested in it and why we couldnt just write something nice about the city. Wed love to, Mr. Cason. Should we ever come to see even a hint of concern from City Hall for the well-being of local taxpayers, who have been pushed to the brink by the casual arrogance of those who run the place, we will trumpet it from the rooftops. Thats a promise. TODAY IN HISTORY On this date: In 1789, Frances National Assembly adopted its Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen. In 1883, the island volcano Krakatoa began eruptions, leading to a massive explosion the following day. In 1920, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, guaranteeing American womens right to vote, was certified in effect by Secretary of State Bainbridge Colby. In 1939, the first televised major league baseball games were shown on experimental station W2XBS: a double-header between the Cincinnati Reds and the Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field. (The Reds won the first game, 5-2, the Dodgers the second, 6-1.) To the Editor: There is a lot of talk (liberal/ conservative) about who is right. I am not too smart but there is an old saying Talk is cheap, takes money to buy whiskey. I have heard people say I knew he was dishonest but he wouldnt be with me. I was told it was fixed but it wasnt. When I am elected everything will be fixed, health insurance for everyone, a well-paying job for everyone, no one will want for anything and Ill lower taxes (impossible to do it ALL). Instead, look at a persons accomplishments. Have they done what they said in the past? Have they stretched the truth in dealings? Did they do what they were hired to do? We may not like how they did it or what they did, but, were they successful? I would like to believe everything I hear but I look at the person, their past, accomplishments and believe they will do just as they have in the past.

Thursday afternoon crews worked on adding 14 trees to the property. These trees, in combination to 15 added about two weeks ago, will offer more color and character to popular youth sports venue. The crews planted pine trees, palm trees, live oaks and magnolia trees in addition to rose bushes and various types of ornamental grasses during the project. This work was in all the initial improvement plans for the renovation work out here, said Clint Pittman, Columbia County Landscape and Parks director. There was originally $100,000 set aside for the landscape renovations which included cleaning and redressing the sports complexs front ponds, the fountain and the front entry way near the complexs LED sign. This phase of the project will costs approximately $25,000, Pittman said. Part of the $25,000, the City of Lake City donated for this project. Its a combined effort on these trees and the final landscape work. Pittman said the new plants will give the sports complex a more polished look. This will make the park look more professional and more inviting when the tournaments and all the folks are coming in to use the facilities, he said. It will finish dressing up the front entrance where the LED sign and flag are. It will finish off the project. Oaks, pines and palms take root at Southside. Farming grants available for Suwannee River basinThe Sustainable Farming Fund administered by Stetson University Institute for Water and Environmental Resilience is seeking proposals to award up to $300,000 in grants to private farmers in the Suwannee River Basin for sustainable farming practices.

SU NDAY, AUAU G USUS T 26, 2018 LOCAL L AA KE CIT YY REPORTER 7A but voters in that district are picking a School Board member. Mrs. Horne, and she has the authority to do so because shes the supervisor of elections, closed the Deep Creek polling site and moved everybody from Deep Creek to Winfield, he said during a telephone interview Friday afternoon. A lot of the people are upset about it, but they called me and I told them that wasnt my decision. That was the decision of the supervisor of elections. It wasnt anything I could do about it. Horne said she has received a few complaints about the Deep Creek consolidation decision. Weve had three phone calls, she said. Thats all weve had. Weve kept a record. Williams said he thinks the decision to combine the precincts will have an adverse impact on the number of people who go to the polls in District 1. It will impact the District 1 voters because some people will have to drive 40 miles round trip to go vote, he said. Horne didnt see travel time to and from polls as a major inconvenience to voters on the north end of the county. We considered everything, she said. We did our homework. I told Commissioner Williams that we have done our homework. We went out and measured everywhere how many miles it was and how long it would take you to get there. People nowadays go anywhere they want to go. They do what they want to do and if they want to vote, theyll drive to vote or come in and ask for a vote by mail ballot or come in and vote early. Tomi Brown, assistant supervisor of elections, echoed Hornes thoughts on voting by mail. We cant put a polling location at everyones back door, but we can deliver your ballot to the front door, Brown said. Columbia County has 13 polling sites and four were closed just months before the primary election. Three of the polling sites that were closed were in churches. Horne previously said the equipment shortage that led to the closure came after the state mistakenly told her certain voting machines were certified then told her otherwise after the machines had been purchased. She couldnt get the money back and could only trade the machines, where she got just 18 units in exchange for the 32 units she had in place. The supervisor of elec tions office needed $200,000 or more to purchase the additional equipment and there was no guarantee the new units would arrive in time for the election. Since there werent enough machines, some precincts had to be combined. Williams said hes also fielded calls from Columbia City voters complaining about having to cast ballots in the small portable building being used to house Precincts 22 and 52 on Southwest Bishop Avenue. It wasnt the board of county commissions decision, it came from the supervisor of elections office, so there wasnt anything else I could do about it, he said. The building is a portable that has been set up in a pasture, but has a gravel driveway and concrete parking area for handicapped voters. Horne defended the polling location. The commissioners have been wonderful in getting us this place, Horne said. There is no place for us to vote out there. We tried. We went everywhere. There is just not that much on that part of the county. Everything in Columbia County was once a pasture. Its got to be improved, sure a little bit, but right now its a great place. Horne said crews have built a road to the building, poured concrete for the handicapped spots, built a ramp for the handicapped and renovated the inside of the structure, which also has a bathroom and air conditioner, just like the countys other voting sites. No, its not brand new, but it is just marvelous and were tickled to death the county took the time, energy and money to make us a polling location in that area, she said. We had no place. Horne said when she talked to the county commissioner who represents that area, he went to work hunting us a place and he couldnt find a place either. Unlike in years past, the county no longer uses churches as polling sites. Churches now have daycare centers, so its not a good idea to hold a polling location, said Tommi Brown, Columbia County assistant supervisor of elections. Horne added that the locations were only guaranteed from one year to the next or one election to the next. They can ask you to leave any time, so if we get a county-owned building, then I have that voting location and it doesnt have to be changed anymore, therefore, that helps in not having to send out new cards, letters and other things in costing the county more money in every time I have to move, she said. Every election we have problems with locations. Every. Single. Election. So our goal is to stop that, so we can get in a location and stay in a location. Horne said the fire department building in the Columbia City area cannot be used as a polling site either. The buildings often dont have air conditioning, heating, have open doors and they arent ADA compliant. Polling sites are required to have adequate parking, lighting, handicapped accessible facilities and room to set up voting booths and other voting essentials. In addition, the building must meet certain safety requirements. Security is huge, Brown said. You cant shut the fire department down on Election Day. You cant take their keys to the fire department from them on election day. Security is top priority and if we cant get a location that we can shut down completely and have complete control of those doors, locks, windows and security systems, and everything that goes along with what were trying to do, its not secure enough. Horne said the supervisor of elections will not be going back to the former polling sites for future elections because they are no longer available. Im not sure about the Deep Creek location, Im sure the churches wont come back, Brown added. We havent made a decision on community centers yet. I think equipment is going to play a big part in that decision in 2020. Brown said the supervisor of elections office hasnt received any calls about the Columbia City voting precinct. Horne said the supervisor of elections office also received a complaint from a voter who griped about having to travel to the Lulu precinct to cast a ballot, but they learned the man traditionally participated in early voting, where ballots are cast either in Lake City or Fort White. Some people just want to gripe, she said.We went out and measured everywhere how many miles it was and how long it would take you to get there. People now adays go anywhere they want to go. They do what they want to do and if they want to vote, theyll drive to vote or come in and ask for a vote by mail ballot or come in and vote early.

The students are Keith Carter and Alison DeLoach of Fort White, and Buie Summerlin, Tyronza Crusaw and Brittney Thomas of Lake City. Funding for the scholarships has been derived from a 1998 Tobacco Settlement between state attorneys general and five major tobacco companies concerning the marketing of tobacco products. Thanks to Gov. Rick Scott and Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, a small portion of the remaining settlement money available for Florida has been earmarked for the program. Current Florida fluecured tobacco growers, former flue-cured tobacco growers and descendants of flue-cured tobacco growers are eligible to apply. Applicants are evaluated for classroom achievement, leadership skills and potential career success. The Tobacco Scholarship Program provides individual awards of up to $2,000. Tobacco production has a proud history in our state and we are using these settlement funds to give back to our communities, Florida Farm Bureau President John Hoblick said. We are delighted to offer scholarship support to qualified young people. We look for their future contributions to our states economy and its quality of life. From staff reports
8A SU NDAY, AUAU G UU ST 26, 2018 LOCAL L AA KE CIT YY REPORTER Young riders weather the stormBy STEVE WILSONswilson@lakecityreporter.comThe Columbia County Riding Club hosted its last Youth Riding Rodeo of 2018 on Saturday. This winds it up, said Clarence Milligan, CCRC vice president. With Western attire encouraged, and negative Coggins required, the event got underway just after 9 a.m., following registration at 8 a.m., at the Lake City Christian Academy on Pinemount Road, open to riders aged four and under to 18. After the Pledge of Allegiance, several young riders opened with a procession, bearing the US Flag, the CCRC flag and others. For the age four and under riders, the tots, events included stick horse races, stuffed buddy pick-up, leadline barrels, and leadline poles. For Little Wranglers, age five to nine, there was goat undressing, goat roping/flipping/branding, barrels, poles and goat tying and trail, and the last three of which were held for the Juniors and Seniors, ages 10-13 and 14-18 respectively. A brief rain shower didnt slow things down at approximately 2:30 p.m., when the Little Wranglers were up. Milligan said that riding is beneficial for young people in their growth and development. Get them involved with horses, they get more involved with people, he said as the event got underway. Charlie Summers, 17, served as an announcer for the event. He said he enjoys being an announcer as it assists the other club members. I love it, he said. It gives me a chance to interact with everybody.

OFF AND RUNNING By JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comBrian Allen kicked his players off the practice field on Tuesday, disgusted with the offenses effort in preparation for Columbias season opener against Gainesville. The Tigers head coach wanted to deliver a message and his players delivered on Friday night. Quarterback Jordan Smith completed 22/32 passes for 372 yards and four touchdowns while running for another to lead Class 7A No. 3 Columbia to a 44-21 win over Gainesville at Tiger Stadium. Smith connected with Bobby Fulton for three of those scores, including a 55-yard bomb less than a minute into the second quarter that put the Tigers up 20-7. That touchdown was the first of the night after the game was postponed Thursday at Citizens Field due to lightning with Columbia leading Gainesville 14-7 with 2:38 left in the first quarter.

That chant, that sound, reverberating throughout the walls at Columbia High School? Thats the sound of the jungle. Or as the Tigers are calling it, Zoo Life. Its a slogan created by receiver TJ Jones and the entire team has gotten behind it, even updating their bios on Twitter with the phrase to reflect Columbias new mantra of 2018. You can hear players chanting it at every practice and you could hear it after Fridays dominating 44-21 win over Gainesville. So what is Zoo Life?

Fort White wasnt as careful after the break, committing its first of four turnovers early in the third quarter and its momentum was never be regained. Suwannee capitalized on Fort Whites mistakes and scored 28 unanswered points in the second half. The Indians scored once more later in the fourth, but it wasnt enough to avoid a 35-19 defeat to the Bulldogs Friday at Paul Langford Stadium. Them boys just came out with a little more fire than we did, Fort White receiver Kanell Stewart said of the second half. They made a few more key plays than us and took the advantage and got the momentum. Fort Whites defense kept Suwannee quarterback Tyree Taylor contained for most of the opening half.

Marqise Lee, who led the team in receptions in 2017, injured his left knee in a 17-6 victory against Atlanta in the preseason Saturday night and could be out for the year. Lee was carted off the field in the first quarter after Falcons cornerback Damontae Kazee twisted his leg making a tackle. Lee fumbled on the play, but it was overturned because Kazee was flagged for tackling with his helmet. Teammates and coaches offered well-wishes to Lee as he left the field. Nonetheless, it was the kind of preseason injury that leaves players, coaches and fans shaking their heads. It also reaffirmed Falcons coach Dan Quinns decision to rest two of his biggest offensive stars, receiver Julio Jones and running back Devonta Freeman.

PETERSBURG (AP) Kevin Kiermaier tripled to key a two-run sixth inning, Tommy Pham homered and the Tampa Bay Rays won their seventh straight game by beating the major league-leading Boston Red Sox 5-1 on Saturday night. The surprising Rays will try to become the first team to sweep Boston in a series this season in Sundays finale of the three-game set. Tampa Bay is a season-high eight games over .500 (69-61). The Rays have allowed three or fewer runs in seven consecutive games. J.D. Martinez had two doubles in four at-bats for the Red Sox, who have lost five of seven. Tampa Bay chased Rick Porcello (157) in the sixth after Kiermaier tripled and Willy Adames was hit by a pitch. Kiermaier scored on a wild pitch by Ryan Brasier before Joey Wendle made it 3-1 later in the inning on a sacrifice fly. Pham hit a solo shot off Brandon Workman in the seventh, and Ji-Man Chois RBI triple put Tampa Bay up 5-1 in the eighth. Porcello gave up three runs and six hits over five-plus innings. Rays starter Ryan Yarbrough allowed one run and five hits in five-plus innings. Ryne Stanek (2-3) replaced Yarbrough and worked a scoreless inning for the win. Tampa Bay threatened in four of the first five innings but went 2 for 11 with runners in scoring positions during that stretch. Brandon Lowe had an RBI single in the fourth that tied it 1-all. Boston scored once in the second on Mitch Morelands double-play grounder.NFL PRESEASONThursdays Games Cleveland 5, Philadelphia 0 Fridays Games Carolina 25, New England 14 Denver 29, Washington 17 N.Y.

(AP) Bryson DeChambeau made four birdies in a five-hole stretch around the turn to pull away from a fading collection of stars, closed with two more birdies and had an 8-under 63 to build a four-shot lead over Keegan Bradley in The Northern Trust. A victory would assure DeChambeau one of the top seeds at East Lake to have a clear shot at the $10 million bonus for winning the FedEx Cup. Dustin Johnson, trailing by two shots after 36 holes despite two triple bogeys, added a double bogey to his week and shot 72 to fall nine shots behind. Brooks Koepka, the U.S. Open and PGA champion who shared the 36-hole lead, began his slide with a three-putt bogey from 12 feet on No. 5 and by missing a 4-foot birdie putt on the next hole. He went 13 holes in the middle of his round with three bogeys and 10 pars and had to settle for a 72. He was seven behind. Scott was one shot behind when he made two bogeys, then chopped up the par-3 11th for a double bogey.

SU NDAY, AUGUST 26, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER 3B AUTO RACINGAllgaier takes Xfinity race at Road AmericaBy GENARO C. ARMASAssociated PressELKHART LAKE, Wis. Race leader Justin Allgaier watched in the mirror as the two cars closest to his Chevrolet made contact, essentially bumping his two closest rivals out of contention. The coast was clear for Allgaier to sail to victory Saturday at Road America for his fourth win of the season. But Allgaier kept thinking about everything else that could go wrong. What if he didnt hit his mark on a turn? What if his car ran over a debris on the track? What if he just ran out of fuel? Ok if I run out of gas I may not go back to the garage area, Allgaier said in recounting his internal conversation. I may just walk back home to Charlotte. Instead, hell head back with his second victory in three weeks, both coming on road courses, after pulling away over the final five laps. Allgaier held a 5.4-second advantage over second-place Matt Tifft to take the tense race filled with bumps, scrapes and spin-outs around the 14-turn course. Daniel Hemric, Tiffts teammate at Richard Childress Racing, was third. The victory erases the sting of a close call in 2011, when Allgaier led late in the race before running out of fuel during a yellow flag. This time, Allgaier was the beneficiary of late-race commotion. With three laps to go, second-place James Davison and third-place Justin Marks were jockeying for position trying desperately to catch Allgaier when their cars spun out around a tight left turn. Tifft blew past Davison and Marks. But no one could catch Allgaier, who started 11th. The victory allowed him to leapfrog Christopher Bell atop the series driver standings. I never would have thought we could have a dream season like this one, he said with a smile after wiping sweat off his forehead. Two road courses ... would you believe that? NASCAR Hall of Famer Bill Elliott finished 20th after coming out of retirement to take his first ride Xfinity ride around Road America. The 62-year-old Elliott started 23rd, then climbed up to 17th before spinning out and falling back. It was a heck of a lot of fun, Elliott said. The old-school driver would have loved the racing at the front of the field. It was an entertaining afternoon for NASCAR during an off week for the top-level Cup circuit. Most of the attention coming into the race fell on Road America rookies like Elliott. British racer Katherine Legge, who was driving in her second NASCAR race, finished 14th. IndyCar driver Conor Daly, who was making his NASCAR debut, finished 31st. A suspension issue forced his No. 6 Ford into the garage after 35 laps.OUTDOORSDove season starts September 22By MONTY STEPHENSSpecial to the ReporterDove hunting, or as it is more popularly called a dove shoot, is regarded as a great way to interest young hunters in the outdoors. A good dove hunt provides lots of opportunities to do what we like to do shoot our guns. To make it more challenging, the targets are moving. But to clarify, dove hunting is not just for kids, people of all ages enjoy a good dove shoot. The FWC has recognized that dove hunting is a great way to bring new hunters into the sport and this type of hunting cannot be done on the typical Wildlife Management Area. True, dove are scattered out there in the forests and woods, but not to the extent of supporting a good hunt. Doves are more attracted to agricultural land. They like a harvested grain field. In addition to the harvested field, Ive been told doves like to land on very short grass or dirt and then walk over to the crop rows to peck at stray kernels that fall to the ground during harvesting. Ive also heard it said that doves really like it if a power line crosses the field so they have something up high to sit on. So making doves happy takes a lot. But the FWC has addressed all of these issues for us by creating a Special-Opportunity Dove Club Program. This initiative offers hunters the chance to experience dove hunting Â on the states best public dove fields. The FWC has established five fields for its public hunting program. If lucky enough to be chosen, the recipient of a Dove Club permit is allowed to hunt all scheduled dates of a dove field hunt. The recipient can also bring one youth (age 15 or younger) on the hunts. Hunters can apply as a group (maximum of three adult hunters) or they can apply as an individual. Cost of the permit is $150 per adult hunter. The general schedule calls for five hunts that will take place on Saturdays from noon until sunset. Be aware though, some fields may have scheduling changes for various reasons. The FWC dove fields are Frog Pond North Public Small Game Hunting Area in Miami-Dade County, Allapattah Flats Public Small Game Hunting Area in Martin County, east of Lake Okeechobee, Hilochee Wildlife Management Area in Lake County, Caravelle Ranch Wildlife Management Area in Putnam County and the Tenoroc Public Small Game Hunting Area in Polk County. These fields are planted in browntop millet, Japanese millet, dove proso, sorghum, buckwheat and sunflowers. The number of permits for each field varies from a high of 30 to as few as 13. Apply for a permit at GoOutdoorsFlorida.com. Be forewarned, it might take a few years to get your name drawn, but it is definitely worth the effort. Dove season is divided into three phases. Phase one starts September 22 and runs through October 14. Phase two starts November 10 and runs through December 2. Phase three starts December 19 and lasts until January 31. Dove is hunting is limited to shotguns only. Because doves are a migratory bird, the shotgun must be plugged to a three-shell capacity (magazine and chamber combined). It is illegal to bait a field for dove hunting. The grain the doves are eating must be there as a normal part of a regular agricultural practices. Be aware of that if you decide to hunt on your own field. Hunting over a baited field can result in very hefty fines. To protect our hunting heritage, we all need to abide by good hunting etiquette. As a kind gesture, farmers and ranchers used to like having friends and guests visit to hunt their land. But too many times gates get left open, empty beverage cans and trash (including spent shotgun shells) are left behind, fences are damaged and crops are run over. And it never hurts either before or after a hunt to stop by the farmers house and say thank you. That is the polite thing to do. Part of the thank you should include an offer to buy dinner. So check out the FWC opportunities. Were lucky to live in a state that gives us these great hunting opportunities. Be safe and good luck. tract in March that included $16.5 million guaranteed. A second-round draft pick from USC in 2014, Lee has 171 catches for 2,166 yards and eight touchdowns. He missed games because of various injuries in three of his four seasons. If Lee misses extended time in 2018, the Jaguars would rely on second-year pros Keelan Cole and Dede Westbrook, one-year rental Donte Moncrief, and rookie DJ Chark to pick up the slack. Jacksonville wants to run the ball and play stout defense, an old-school philosophy that got the team to the AFC championship game last season. That style helped the Jags control the first half against Atlanta, although they only led 10-6 on the scoreboard. Coach Doug Marrones team outgained the Falcons 236-96 in the opening 30 minutes. Matt Ryan completed 5 of 12 passes for 57 yards. Tevin Coleman ran seven times for 38 yards, with 22 of those coming on one scamper. Leonard Fournette carried 10 times for 57 yards and a touchdown for Jacksonville. Fournettes 21-yard run in the second quarter was the only traditional touchdown of the night. The Jags scored again in the fourth, when backup quarterback Cody Kessler fumbled a snap, picked up the loose ball and bulldozed his way across the goal line. Blake Bortles played into the third quarter and finished 17 of 23 for 204 yards. But he also threw two interceptions, one on a tipped ball and another on a pass that sailed wide of a receiver.ANTHEM PROTESTJaguars All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey and Pro Bowl linebacker Telvin Smith remained in the locker room during the national anthem. Smith has skipped the anthem in each of the teams three preseason games. Ramsey was suspended for last weeks exhibition at Minnesota, not for anything related to the anthem. JAGUARS Continued From 1B PRESEASON DEBUTThe Jaguars had two players make their preseason debut. 2017 All-Pro guard Andrew Norwell (calf) and defensive lineman Taven Bryan (abdomen), a firstround pick from Florida, missed the first two exhibitions. Bryans best play was batting down a pass in the closing minutes.SITTING OUTThe Jaguars were without six players: cornerback A.J.

4B LAKE CITY REPOR TER SPORTS SUNDAY, AUGUST 26, 2018 COLLEGE FOOTBALLFSU CB Taylor feels underrated, yet deliversBlair and the boys still meshingSome passes were underthrown, some were overthrown. Some were off the mark, some were right on target. Some were reeled in, some were just dropped. In other words, the Dylan Blair effect will take time. Nothing great happens overnight. The gunslinger transfer from Columbia will be a star in his senior season at Fort White, but the chemistry between receivers isnt quite there yet. This was evident in Fridays contest against a Suwannee defense that challenged Blair to throw the deep ball. And some tosses were right on the money for example, a 52-yard touchdown to Kanell Stewart as well as a 42-yard completion to Derrick Roberson. But others, especially late in the second half, just werent there. Not because of impressive secondary coverage, but because the deep connection is still a work in progress. We need to help them out [the defense] a little more and make more plays, wide receiver Kanell Stewart told me after the game. We can do that. We just need to go back and look at [film] and see how we can make ourselves better. The tiwahe offense really never got rolling Friday, but theres no doubt the unit has loads of potential as the season begins. With studs like Derrick Roberson, Rahman Paul and Stewart, Blair has a plethora of playmakers around him to be successful. Thats why the loss hurts, stings just a little bit more, because Suwannees cornerbacks had no chance defending Fort Whites wide receiving corps. They were giving us the deep ball, Fort White coach Demetric Jackson told me. We just kind of overthrew it. We just didnt make quite enough of those plays that we had a chance to make. Even they only combined for 101 rushing yards, Fort Whites running back duo Stanley Maxwell and Brayden Summers showed great potential as a strong tandem. Thunder and lightning will be needed to balance an offense that wont have Corey Dryden (torn ACL) on this journey. Once this offense gets clicking, it can possibly be one of the best in Class 3A. We saw flashes of it of what it can become but just not enough consistently to pull out the victory. Good thing is, its just Week 1. The opportunity to defeat the Bulldogs for a third straight season is lost. But theres plenty of good the tribe can take away from the season opener.Photos by PAUL BUCHANAN/Special to the ReporterFort White quarterback Dylan Balir scrambles away from pressure against Suwannee on Friday night. Nobody asked me, but ... Eric JacksonPhone: (386) 754-0420 ejackson@lakecityr eporter.com By BOB FERRANTEAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida State cornerback Levonta Taylor doesnt look the part. The junior is generously listed at 5-foot-10 and 181 pounds. Not that those numbers interest him. The stats he focuses are 0 and 1 as in no touchdowns he allowed in 2017 and his jersey number. Taylor temporarily lost his valuable No. 1 when coach Willie Taggart took away all of the single-digit numbers for Florida State players in the spring, summer and start of preseason camp. But Taylor is proudly wearing No. 1 again. Hes a great DB, one of the best in the country, Taggart said. Great young man, as well. He brings a lot to our team not only on the football field but off the football field. Hes one of the better teammates on the team. It was confirmation that Taggart recognizes Taylor as a dude, the coachs definition for a player worthy of a single-digit number. Back to being a dude, Taylor said while wearing an oversized on a gold chain. Im happy to have my number back. Like he said, If you work hard for your number, youll get it back. And if you dont, youll know why. Hell get his chance to validate his coachs decision when the 19th-ranked Seminoles host No. 20 Florida State on Sept. 3. Taylor has built a college resume on hard work, refining his technique for the weekly battles against taller and sometimes stronger receivers. He started all of Florida States games last season but made just 18 tackles and two interceptions. Not overly impressive stats, but quarterbacks dont throw his way. Taylor allowed just 13 receptions, an average of one per game, in 2017 and didnt allow a touchdown in 379 coverage snaps, according to Pro Football Focus. Thats the most snaps without allowing a touchdown pass among Atlantic Coast Conference cornerbacks. But Taylor wasnt named to last years All-ACC team or the preseason all-conference team. He was named a preseason All-American by ESPN.com but otherwise was shut out. He feels part of that is a byproduct of the Seminoles underwhelming 7-6 season in 2017. I feel like Im underrated, Taylor said. People know about me. They know I have great feet. They know Im a great corner. Its just that we had a bad season last year. When you have a bad season, nobody is watching the games, having publicity on social media. Other teams, they probably had a corner that really wasnt good like that but they were winning so it bumps them up, hypes them up. Taylor doesnt have the prototype size of a shut-down corner. But he plays like one. Florida State defensive coordinator Harlon Barnett saw how good Taylor was this offseason. Hes stronger than you think he is, Barnett said. Obviously hes fast and he has a lot of confidence in himself. He does take pride in his game getting better, paying attention to the details. The technique things that you need to do. He pays attention to them and tries to work on them daily, which helps his game continue to rise and rise and rise. Taylors NFL stock could continue to rise and he could become the next in a long line of Seminoles defensive backs who have transitioned to the league, including Jalen Ramsey, Derwin James, Ronald Darby and P.J. Williams. It is easy to see the natural talent, NFL draft analyst Dane Brugler said. He is twitched up and has the supreme confidence required for the position. He looks comfortable moving in reverse and works hard to stay within arms length with receivers.

Despite the defensive effort, the offense only scored two touchdowns in the first two quarters. It was more so of what we didnt do in the first half and it escalated in the second half, Fort White coach Demetric Jackson said. Not capitalizing on [Suwannees] mistakes. We had some opportunities to put the game away, got a couple fumbles and an interception [but] we didnt capitalize on that. Fort White quarterback Dylan Blair finished with 239 passing yards and three touchdowns. But his offense sputtered in the second half as the Indians failed to find a rhythm behind the new transfer quarterback. Fort Whites defense began to unravel as the offensive woes continued. Blairs three interceptions after halftime proved critical and helped the Bulldogs to their first win in the series since 2015. At that point we lost some confidence, Jackson added. They went man-to-man [coverage] and started stopping our run game. So it gave us a chance to throw the ball but as we got closer to the end zone, the passing lanes werent there for us. But this is what we wanted to see a good, quality opponent early in the season. And see how we adjust to it. We just didnt make enough plays in the end, hats off to Suwannee, they did. Suwannee (1-0) drove Fort White (0-1) downfield on its opening drive. Jaquez Moores 8-yard touchdown run gave the Bulldogs an early advantage. Fort Whites sluggish start ended when Blair connected with Stewart for a 52-yard touchdown early in the second quarter. The tribe found a groove after the big play, jolting not only the offense but their defense as well. The Indians were back in the end zone when Blair found Rahman Paul for a 13-yard touchdown with four minutes left in the first half. Suwannees defense stifled the Fort Whites offense in the second half, keeping running backs Stanley Maxwell and Brayden Summers contained. The Bulldogs took advantage of their blunders as Taylor scored touchdowns on back-to-back possessions following turnovers. After Suwannee running back Carlton Hall scored his second and final touchdown in the fourth, Fort Whites offense finally answered after a long stretch without a score. Derrick Robersons 23-yard touchdown catch trimmed the deficit yet the comeback was short-lived. Blairs interception on the final drive sealed the loss. We usually work better under pressure but it just wasnt one of those nights, linebacker/fullback Kam Calhoun said. Fort White looks to shake off the loss and get prepared during the coming week of practice. The Indians are set to host regional opponent Providence next week. Lets get back to work, Jackson said. And make the corrections that we need to make. And lets go protect home field and go get a victory.CHRISTINA FEAGIN/Special to the ReporterFort White defensive back Terrance Jones chases after Suwannee running back CJ Hall during Friday nights game.

By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comDaniel Mann can finally say hes a college wrestler. The Columbia Â standout made it official by signing his letter of intent with Brewton Â Parker College Friday after noon. Mann, who graduated this past spring, chose Brewton Parker College Â over Life University and other schools. After visiting the private Â col lege up in Mount Vernon (Ga.) last year, Mann says he came away Â impr essed by the schools wrestling Â pr ogram as well as the campus. Â The ex-T iger turned Baron begins class next week. I always hoped this day would come around, he said. Mann ended his high school career on a high note. As one of the key Â wr estlers for Columbia this past season, he dominated his way to a Â district title en route to a regional title in the 132 weight class. Mann was one of only two Tigers to accomplish the feat, and it was Â enough to r each the state finals, making it all the way to Â the semifinal round before Â his elimination (8th place). Hes a per fect example of when you put your mind to something and Â commit to it, gr eat things can happen, Columbia principal Trey Â Hosfor d said during the event. Im extremely proud of you. Nothing was ever guaranteed for Mann, who dealt with issues off the Â mat that led him to be sidelined for both his Â fr eshman and sophomore seasons. Those obstacles, Â howev er, Â never stopped him for ear ning a scholarship. Â Mann r eturned to the team for his junior campaign, and quickly proved Â he was a star at Columbia. Â The two-time district champ leaves behind quite a legacy a true Â comeback stor y. Ive seen this young man mature and develop, not only as a man but Â also as a wr estler, Columbia coach Pete Whittington said. He came Â r eally close to qualifying for state his first year back. You can see Â that it touched a nerve in him. In one summer, I saw him improve more Â than Ive ever seen in such a short amount of time. A lot of that is Â due to ded ication and the will to succeed. 6B LAKE CITY REPOR TER SPORTS SUNDAY, AUGUST 26, 2018 PREP WRESTLINGMann signs with Brewton Parker CollegeERIC JACKSON/Lake City ReporterColumbias Daniel Mann signed his letter of intent with Brewton Parker College on Friday. at Citizens Field. It was the sixth straight victory for the Tigers (1-0) over the Hurricanes (0-1). Im proud of them. They left (Thursday) night clicking on all cylinders. You never like a game where theres a disruption when you have momentum, Allen said. They came to school today not knowing if there would be a game today or on Saturday but they got locked in by 7:30 and they came out and executed. Smith and Fulton hooked up again for another touchdown this time from 19 yards out to extend Columbias lead to 27-7 with 4:17 to go in the first half. It was a dominating offensive performance for the Tigers, who tallied 366 yards and 18 first downs in the first half alone. That included Smiths 6-yard touchdown scamper and his 18-yard touchdown pass to receiver Marquez Bell in the first quarter on Thursday. Smith also rushed for 63 yards on eight carries. Hes taken a grasp of this playbook and run with it, Allen said of Smith. He has a natural ability with his legs but thats something were going to make sure hes not known for. Its not just what he can do with his legs but what he has the ability to do with his arm. I havent held back the reigns of what were doing offensively. He hasnt even hit the tip of the iceberg of who that kid is going to be, especially with the special guys around him. Gainesville grabbed some momentum right before halftime when quarterback Luke Matthews threw a deep ball to receiver Jalen Kelsey for a 45-yard touchdown with 1:45 to go to cut the deficit to two scores. But that momentum was squashed seconds into halftime as Jaden Williams returned the second half kickoff 85 yards for a touchdown to put Columbia up 34-13. Â The Hurricanes r esponded with Matthews 13-yard score to Isaac Meacham but Smith and company always had an answer, driving right back down the field on an 11-play, 72 yard drive that ended with Smiths third touchdown pass to Fulton from 13 yards out for a 41-21 advantage. Fulton caught six passes for 115 yards to lead the Tigers. We were just connecting. It just happened. It was just my night, Fulton said. I just expected to come out and catch the ball when it was thrown to me. That was Jordan. All Jordan. Matthews finished 34/48 for 406 yards and three touchdowns, with two of those going to Kelsey (10 catches for 205 yards). But he also threw two interceptions, snatched by Devin Johnson and Shyheim Brown. The game turned into a good, old-fashioned shootout as the teams combined for 1,017 yards (Columbia 580, Gainesville 437). But Columbias long ball proved to be the difference on Friday night. What we did tonight is our system, Allen said. It could be TJ (Jones) the next week. It could be Marquez the next week or Butter (Jaden Williams) or Lanadrick (Bradley) the next week. Its just a matter of what were seeing from the defense when the plays are being called. We have concepts but we also have ways to tag routes and be able to get guys open. Jordan did a good job with his legs, our receivers understand what we have to do when he scrambles and that gave Bobby opportunities tonight. Kylen Callum led Columbia on the ground with 77 yards on 11 carries. Bell caught six passes for 91 yards while Jones, a 2019 four-star prospect, caught six more for 66 yards. Were going outscore any team and we did, Jones said. NOT AGAIN: Columbia senior linebacker Ethan Umstead left the game early with an ankle injury. The senior sprained it Thursday night and tried to go Friday but he later went to the locker room in the second quarter and came back to the field in street clothes. It was Umsteads first game action since fracturing his ankle over the summer. Thats going to be something when you have a high ankle sprain that youre going to have to deal with, Allen said. Hopefully hes ready to go full speed by the that. Columbia stomped all over Gainesvilles defense, pounding the Hurricanes for 580 yards. The Tigers marched up and down the field almost effortlessly, never punting until late in the fourth quarter. Every night we come out and encompass zoo life, Jones said. We show that were from the zoo and that nobody can play with us. Gainesville certainly couldnt. Neither could nationally ranked IMG Academy in last weeks preseason classic. These Tigers seem for real and people all around the state are noticing, evident by their No. 3 ranking in Class 7A in the APs preseason state football poll. Keeping a bunch of teenagers on an even keel as the media generates more and more hype isnt easy for a coach. You have to find ways to reach them. Columbia head coach Brian Allen did that at Tuesdays practice, kicking his players off the field when the first team offense wasnt executing against the second team defense. The result? A sixth straight victory for Columbia over Gainesville three days later. Everybody is going to get critiqued, criticized, ridiculed the same way here, Allen said. It doesnt matter if your names Marquez (Bell) or Jordan (Smith) or if youre the bottom guy on the totem poll. We have a level of expectation this year and thats the same way its been for eight years now and its not going to change. Were going to keep them humble and were going to keep them hungry. You cant say youre going to keep them away from social media because this is the age that were in. Youve just got to make sure you keep these guys ready to play like they played in that (preseason) classic against IMG against every opponent. Whether its the ones youre supposed to win or the ones that you arent, you have to have that same mentality like its the biggest game of your life because its the next one. The next one is Suwannee, another rival Columbia has beat up on recently. The Tigers havent lost the Oak Bucket rivalry since 2007 and certainly dont expect to in 2018. But the challenge for Allen is trying to get his team up for every game. Its easy when youre facing IMG Academy or the likes of Bolles, Madison County and Robert E. Lee. But its not when its teams youve defeated year in and year out. Allen has his ways to battle that Im sure. He even says his go-to is a famous quote from basketball legend John Wooden: Â T alent is God given. Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful. Â Thats the philosophy I teach my kids and my kids ar e starting to learn that, Allen said. Be humble, be hungry, stay that way and itll make you competitive the rest of your life. But perhaps the biggest saying is the one simply created by Jones in a group chat one day this summer. Its turned into hashtags, tweets and t-shirts and now a howling chant every day on the field Perhaps Zoo Life is what pushes the Tigers day in and day out and gets them up for every team every Friday regardless of record. Perhaps thats the little extra push thats needed every now and then for a team weighted with expectations. This place is called the Jungle since I was in school and even beyond in when this place was created. Its the Jungle, Allen said. When you think about the different animals that are in the jungle and how these kids are able to see them a majority of time in the zoo then thats what TJ came up with this thing and its taken off. Were embracing it and I think the whole ZOO LIFE Continued From 1B CHSContinued From 1B Photos by BRENT KUYKENDALL/Lake City ReporterColumbia defensive back Devin Johnson celebrates with teammates after intercepting a pass against Gainesville on Friday night.

HEAVY WESTERN HEAVY WESTERN 5 LB ROLL $3.49/EA 2.52 OZ Experts: Save money going forwardBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comBudgeting, income planning and how to save money in taxes often plague the minds of retirees who live on a fixed income. John Kuykendall, Gulf Coast Financial Services founder and CEO, has scheduled a local educational seminar to provide answers about new tax law requirements for this week. People just need to know how this is going to affect them, he said. Were going to be talking about the tax credits from 2017 and how to implement those in retirement and also some ways that people can do some additional things to save money on their taxes. The seminar will take place from 5:30 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Gulf Coast Financial office, 248 N. Marion Ave. Space is still available to register by calling 386-755-9018. Were not selling any thing, he said. All were doing is giving a presentation on the tax code, how it works and how it affects you. Kuykendall said Gulf Coast Financial Services decided to host a seminar on the new tax laws just to educate the public. We found out with our clients that everybody is interested in tax credits, he said. They dont understand them; dont understand how they are going to affect them tax wise, so we wanted to meet with them and explain it to them. This seminar will put it out very simply, involve the tax credits that are available and well talk about how theyre going to be able to save money going forward. Kuykendall said he wanted to get the information out to clients because hes older, and is on social security and Medicare, and he realizes that most things cost more money today. I think its important, especially with retirees, that we make every dollar count, he said. A lot of people are on fixed incomes and they dont have a lot of money. Im finding a lot of clients are running out of money because they pulled too much out. Weve been preaching for the last couple of years budgeting, income planning and how to save money in taxes. During the seminar Kuykendall and members of his staff will use multimedia tools to show attendees how much the next dollar costs if they pulled it out of their retirement account or if they sell a stock. We can show them how much theyre going to have to pay on that additional withdrawal, he said. Well go through the seminar, show them the software and then well meet with them oneon-one if they want a consultation, free of charge, and explain to them how they can save money. The seminar has been promoted through a Facebook campaign and Kuykendall said several people have contacted Gulf Coast Financial about attending. A similar seminar was held in Gainesville last month, where close to 50 people attended. Kuykendall said close to 50 people have already called with questions about attending the Lake City seminar. With so much interest generated, another seminar in Gainesville has been planned for October. Were doing it at two times, at lunch and in the evening, so that we can give people a convenient time to show up, he said. Kuykendall said under the new tax codes, nationally, 85 percent of Americans will not have to itemize their taxes. I think thats the situation here (Columbia County), he said. We probably have the same thing. Its keeping things in the lowest tax bracket. There are some capital gains that are zero, but if you get too much income or sell too much capital gain, then you get into the 10 percent capital gain tax bracket. We want to keep people in the zero.

2C LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, AUGUST 26 SEPTEMBER 1, 2018 Name That Company rffn tbn nnb ffbn nfn bfnr fnnb bnn bbnnbr nfnfnfn bbtfnb nbbnnb nb nnnThink you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition. Study the statements you receive from any money managers to see how often theyre placing trades. Remember that big bucks are typically made in great stocks when you hold on for many years. Churning is also a problem in the mutual fund industry, where fund managers can be so pressured to beat the market over short periods that they cant afford to be patient with solid holdings that just need more time to perform. A fund with a high turnover rate reflects intense trading activity, and funds with the highest turnover rates often underperform their lessactive counterparts. After all, lots of buying and selling generates lots of commission expenses, which are borne by shareholders. Churned investors also get a tax hit. Gains from stocks youve held for more than a year are taxed at the preferable long-term capital gains rate, which is 15 percent for most people. Short-term gains are taxed at your ordinary income rate, which can be more than twice as much. Even we individual investors can sometimes engage in churning, if we have short attention spans or are just impatient. Be aware of churning, and aim to avoid it.Shopping for ShopifyShopify (NYSE: SHOP) helps more than 600,000 businesses sell their products online. It offers more than 100 website templates to help customize the experience, and it can provide services such as invoicing, order tracking, payment processing and shipping integration, too. The recurring revenue thats generated should help Shopify prosper for years to come. Shopify has been so successful catering to the needs of smalland medium-sized merchants that it has added enterprise-level options for larger companies, which tend to spend more than their smaller counterparts. Its also focusing on international growth, as currently most of its customers are located in the United States. The company has chosen to forgo profits (for now) in exchange for a rapid expansion (its secondquarter revenue soared 62 percent over year-earlier levels). Thats not uncommon for young and fastgrowing companies, and increasing sales and more recurring revenue should eventually deliver earnings. Meanwhile, Shopifys stock price has soared more than 700 percent over the past five years. Management forecasts revenue of about $1 billion for the full year, which would be a 48 percent jump over last year. With its massive international opportunity and the paradigm shift to e-commerce that is just getting started, Shopify is a promising portfolio candidate for risk-tolerant long-term investors. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Shopify.) rffBurned by VolatilityMy dumbest investment was in Sierra Wireless, which fell from near $50 per share to the mid-teens, costing me a lot of money. B.B., online The Fool Responds: When investing, its important to remember that not every investment will play out as you expect or hope. Even the best investors regret some of their moves. Its also critical to understand that no stock will move up in a straight line. Theres always some volatility, and it can be especially so with young companies and ones in fastchanging industries. As long as you maintain long-term faith in a company, its often best to just hang on. Sierra Wireless, in the business of making wireless chips and modules that are used in wearable devices, connected vehicles, smart cities and more, topped $30 per share about nine months after you wrote us, but it was recently in the teens again, though seemingly heading up. Its focused on the promising Internet of Things market, which enables items such as cars, health care devices and even home appliances to communicate using Bluetooth and cellular signals. We cant know how Sierra Wireless will perform in the future, but theres plenty to be hopeful about. Its shares surged 19 percent recently, when it posted strong second-quarter results, featuring revenue growing 16 percent year over year and bullish projections from management. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Sierra Wireless.) Can Return on Equity Be Too High?QIf a company has a return on equity above 100 percent, is that good or bad? E.M., Rochester, MinnesotaAIt requires a closer look. Return on equity (ROE) reflects the productivity of the net assets (assets minus liabilities) that a company has at its disposal. Its determined by dividing net income by shareholder equity. (Net income is found on a companys income statement, while shareholder equity is found on the balance sheet and is what you get when you subtract liabilities from assets.) In general, the higher the ROE, the better.Note, though, that some ROEs are artificially high because the company has taken on a lot of debt or has bought back a lot of shares. These actions shrink shareholder equity, driving up ROE.***QWhats the accrual method? S.L., Maryville, TennesseeAIts one of many accounting concepts worth learning to help you understand companies finan cial statements. In the accounting world, rev enue (sales) doesnt necessarily rep resent the receipt of cash in a sale. Many companies are required to book sales when goods are shipped or when services are rendered. But others can record sales when cash is received, or incrementally, as longterm contracts proceed through stages of completion. With the accrual accounting system, the rev enue on a companys income state ment may not have actually been received by the company. Imagine, for example, PieMart Inc. (ticker: GOBBL). With the accrual method, if it has shipped off a thousand pies but hasnt yet been paid for them, those sales still appear on the income statement. The checks in the mail are reported as accounts receivable on the bal ance sheet. (When receivables are growing faster than revenue, that can be a sign of trouble.)Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.orgA Bad Kind of ChurningChurning doesnt just refer to the production of butter. Its also a financial term, referring to when financial professionals engage in excessive trading buying and selling securities. They typically do so on behalf of their clients, generating commissions for themselves in the process and usually not serving those clients well. This churning results in billions of dollars lost each year. The problem exists because some stockbrokers are paid based on the number of trades they make in your account, not how well that account performs. (This explains brokers who cold-call you, trying to sell you on supposedly terrific investments.) Even if your broker is good and has you invested in growing companies, he or she might still be frequently moving you out of one good company and into another. Each transaction can result in a gain for the brokerage regardless of how it does for you. 2018 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

Should you set up a larger emergency fund?Dear Dave, My wife and I are following your plan, and we just paid off all our debt except for the house. Since we work for the same company, do you think we should have an emergency fund that is larger than you normally recommend? Don Dear Don, Thats great news! Youve finished Baby Step 2, and now youre ready for Baby Step 3, which is fully-funding your emergency fund. I dont see a reason to set aside more than six months of expenses. My recommended range for an emergency fund is three to six months of expenses. If your employment situation is one where theres more risk of something going wrong, you should lean toward saving six months worth. If your employment outlook is really stable, you can go with setting aside three or four months of expenses in an emergency fund. I look at your situation as being more high-risk. You each have jobs, so thats the good news. But if the company went down, or experienced layoffs, you could find yourselves unemployed at the same time. My advice would be to save up six months of expenses for your emergency fund. With that kind of cash just sitting there, you should be able to make an easier and less stressful transition in almost any kind of unemployment scenario or other emergency. Dave Dear Dave, What exactly is unsecured debt, and how is it different from secured debt? Rich Dear Rich, Unsecured debt general ly means someone loaned you money, but they dont have a lien on anything. Credit cards and student loans are examples of unsecured debt, because theres nothing they can directly repossess if the borrower doesnt pay. However, they can sue you if you dont pay, and get a lien against something after they sue you. In some cases, this is done against your income by garnishing your wages. Some examples of secured debt would be things like a home mortgage or car loan. A home mortgage loan is secured by the home. If you dont pay, they can foreclose and take the house. The same is true with a car loan. If you dont make the payments, they can take the car. Typically, unsecured debts will be the last debts you pay if youre in financial trouble. Youd make the car payment before paying on your student loan, and youd make your house payment before paying on a credit card. Hope this helps, Rich! Dave Dave Ramsey is Americas trusted voice on money and business, and CEO of Ramsey Solutions. He has authored best-selling books and hosts The Dave Ramsey Show. Dave RamseyCEO of Ramsey SolutionsDAVE SAYS Do you have enough savings for planned and unplanned expenses?Nearly half of consumers have encountered an emergency expense in the past year, but when it comes to financially preparing for the unexpected, many fall short, according to CIT Banks new Summer Savings Survey conducted by The Harris Poll. Whats more, the survey also found that many consumers dont have the savings to afford the planned expense of the vacations they take. More than one in four consumers dont save anything for unexpected events such as a home repair or health expense, says Ravi Kumar, head of Internet Banking for CIT Bank. Over another quarter report saving less than 5 percent of their monthly household income for emergencies. How are consumers making ends meet? Family and credit cards top the list of resources Americans rely on for financial support during emergencies. As for the planned expense of a vacation, approximately one in three (29 percent) report tak ing extreme actions to pay their way, including taking out a bank loan, going into debt, cleaning out a savings account, borrowing money or maxing out a credit card. Americans can do more to ensure their lifestyles and savings priorities are aligned, says Kumar. But saving wisely is key. To plan the monthly amount that youll need to save for peace of mind, utilize free resources, such as CIT Banks online calculators at bankoncit.com/calculators. Then, consider looking for an account that will make your savings work harder and offer some flexibility. Do you have enough savings for planned and unplanned expenses? When it comes to happy occasions, like vacations, as well as the unexpected, being prepared can safeguard you against zeroing out your account or going into debt. -StatePoint Andrey Popov/stock.Adobe.comKeeping the piggy bank full is important to long term financial security.
WEEK OF SUNDAY, AUGUST 26 SEPTEMBER 1, 2018 BUSINESS LAKE CITY REPORTER 3CHow to recognize and avoid scholarship scamsAverage college costs have doubled in the last two decades, and this financial pressure along with new technologies makes todays students particularly vulnerable to financial aid and scholarship scams. Scammers know to take advantage of those who are stressed, says Robert C. Ballard, president and CEO of Scholarship America, the nations largest nonprofit scholarship and education support organization. Fortunately, there are some ways you can avoid getting duped. To help you spot scams, Scholarship America offers the following insights. Fees and Other Red Flags Scholarship programs charging a fee to apply often look legitimate. But look at the bigger picture: if the provider is awarding $500 in scholarships and collecting fees from thousands of applicants, its not funding education so much as making money. Your chances of earning a scholarship are slight if not impossible -sham providers often collect fees and disappear. Some providers claim to have a no-strings-attached grant or an incredibly low-interest loan to offer, as long as you pay a tax or redemption fee in advance. Others offer to match you with guaranteed scholarships -if you pay for a premium search service. Keep in mind, theres no such thing as a guaranteed scholarship. Free, comprehensive scholarship searching and matching services like Fastweb and Cappex will connect you to legitimate, competitive scholarships that dont charge application fees. Too Good to Be True Be wary of the toogood-to-be-true scam model: an official-sounding organization tells you about an incredible opportunity, offers you a coveted spot at a scholarship seminar, or just sends you a check with a note of congratulations, using messaging designed to get your adrenaline pumping and make you act fast. Remember, scholarship providers arent in the practice of sending funds out randomly; its likely the check will bounce, or youll be asked to send money back for processing or an accidental overpayment. Your saf est bet? Tearing up the check and, if you have time, filing a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission. Often unexpected opportunities are attempts to get you to divulge personal infor mation. Even clicking on links can expose your data to scammers. Be cautious: Google the name of the scholarship or organization. Scams have often been flagged by the FTC or Better Business Bureau. Social Scammers A new scam making the rounds starts with a random friend request on Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat. Accept, and your new friend will start messaging you about a foolproof way to make money for college: they work for a scholarship provider and have found a loophole. They just need to enter you as a winner and you can split the money. If this was real, itd be incredibly unethical. However, in the midst of stress, you may be tempted -and that could cost more than money. While you may be asked to send cash as an advance, most such scammers are phishing. Give them enough info, and youll be wor rying about getting your identity back. For more scholarship tools, resources and opportunities, including the annual Scholarship America Dream Award, please visit scholarshipamerica.org. Scholarship scams seem to work just enough for people to keep trying it, says Ballard. However, two main rules will help you avoid them: never pay to apply and if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. -StatePoint BurstFees and too good to be truee seeming offers are red flags for scholarship and related scams. Is your dinner contributing to plastic pollution in the ocean?Did you know that the choices your local grocery store makes can have a global impact on the environment? From the types and brands of seafood sold to the way foods are packaged and carried out of the store, oceans worldwide are affected by the operations of grocers near you. Fortunately, supermarkets across the country have made significant progress over the last 10 years when it comes to providing sustainable seafood options to customers, according to a new Greenpeace report, Carting Away the Oceans. From advocacy and transparency initiatives to addressing illegal fishing, many major retailers nationwide are improving. Overall, 90 percent of the retailers profiled in the report received passing scores, 10 years after every single retailer failed Greenpeaces first assessment. However, experts say that the momentum of this positive trend should be applied to other areas of sustainability, too. Its time to put the same energy into tackling the unaddressed issues facing seafood workers and our oceans, says Greenpeace oceans campaigner David Pinsky. Its not truly sustainable seafood if its produced by forced labor and then wrapped in throwaway plastic packaging. Supermarkets can use their brands, buying power and influence to do what is right for our oceans and for future generations. As Greenpeace points out, the equivalent of a garbage truck of plastic enters oceans every minute, and with plastic production set to double in the next 20 years -largely for packaging -threats to ocean biodiversity and seafood supply chains are increasing. According to the report, none of the retailers profiled currently have a comprehensive policy to reduce and ultimately phase out their reliance on single-use plastics. As a customer, you can make a difference by carrying your own tote bag on shopping trips and by asking your local supermarket what steps are being taken to reduce plastic use. Consumers can also show their support for brands doing the right thing by shopping only for seafood thats produced sustainably and ethically. To learn more, visit greenpeace.org/usa/cartingaway-the-oceans. The next time you shop for groceries, take note of both the foods you are buying and the way items are packaged. Experts say that when you eat seafood from ethical, sustainable producers and limit single-use plastic packaging, oceans worldwide will benefit. -StatePoint artem_goncharov/stock.Adobe.comCertain types of packaged grocery items can have a negative environmental impact. Govt acts to stop high-tax states from skirting $10K deduction capThe Associated Press The Trump administration has laid down rules aimed at preventing residents in hightax states from avoiding a new cap on widely popular state and local tax deductions. The action under the new Republican tax law pits the government against high-tax, heavily Democratic states in an election-year showdown. The Treasury Departments rules released Thursday target moves by states like New York, New Jersey and California where residents could see substantial increases in their federal tax bills next spring because of the $10,000 cap on state and local deductions. The cap was put in as a compromise to eliminating the deductions completely, as part of the massive GOP tax package pushed by President Donald Trump and enacted late last year. Experts say the issue likely will have to be resolved by the federal courts. But the new rules dollar-for-dollar limit also applies to many other states that already have charitable funds offering tax breaks and those programs too could be hurt by the rules. Those states include solidly Republican ones and others with relatively low taxes. In those programs, donors to schools, hospitals or land-conservation programs can get their state taxes reduced in return plus a charitable deduction on their federal tax returns. The limit means taxpayers only can deduct as a charitable contribution the portion of their donation for which they dont also get a state tax credit. While the aim of the rules is to challenge the high-tax states moves to skirt the cap, these regulations sweep more broadly than that, said Daniel Rosen, a tax lawyer at Baker McKenzie who formerly was an IRS official. A few programs may be protected because of an exception to the rules dollar-for-dollar requirement, he said. Steven Rosenthal, a senior fellow at the nonpartisan Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center, said he was surprised by the broad reach of the rules, affecting both high-tax states workaround efforts and existing programs in Republican states to fund private-school tuition. He also noted the prompt effective-date of the rules, Aug. 27 which could spur a wave of donations to current programs before the deductions are limited. I think this is going to cause an unbelievable opening of the pipeline, Rosenthal said. Four high-tax states Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey and New York already have sued the federal government over the deduction cap, asserting its aimed at hurting a group of Democratic states and tramples on their constitutional budget-making authority. A dozen high-tax states have taken or are considering measures to get around the cap. Most of the workarounds take advantage of federal deductions for charitable contributions which arent capped in place of the old deductions for paying state and local income taxes. So peoples state and local taxes exceeding $10,000, which cant be deducted, are turned into deductible charitable donations. The Republican tax law is an affront to middle-class Connecticut families and a massive giveaway to the wealthiest individuals and largest corporations, and the (rules) issued by the Trump administration today only make it worse, Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy, a Democrat, said in a statement Thursday. Treasury said it expects that only about 1 percent of all U.S. taxpayers would see a reduction of their tax credits for donations to private-school voucher funds. Several states Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Montana and South Carolina allow taxpayers who donate to private-school funds to get a 100 percent credit against their state taxes, according to data compiled by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy. HOW DO THE LIMITS WORK UNDER THE NEW RULES? Dollar-for-dollar: When a taxpayer receives a benefit in return for donating to charity, the taxpayer should only be able to deduct the net value of the donation as a charitable contribution, Treasury says. An example: You donate $1,000 to a charity in a state that offers a 70 percent tax credit, so $700 in this case. You would only be able to claim a $300 charitable deduction on your federal return. There is an exception. If the state tax credits dont exceed 15 percent of the amount donated, so up to a $150 state tax credit on a $1,000 donation, the taxpayer could claim the full amount as a charitable deduction.A dozen high-tax states have taken or are considering measures to get around the cap.

Consider these six money tips to help you navigate the process. Know your credit profile: Your credit score may impact the interest rate or the amount of money you can borrow. Once a year, you may obtain a free copy of your credit report from each of the three credit bureaus at annualcreditreport.com, the official site for free annual reports. Having great credit is certainly helpful, but not required. Homebuyer education and home loan financing programs are making it easier for homebuyers with a range of credit scores or limited credit history to obtain a loan. Find more tips and free education resources at wellsfargo.com/financial-education. Manage debt: Another important factor mortgage lenders evaluate is debt-toincome ratio. A good rule of thumb is to keep your total debt level (taking into account the potential new mortgage payment) at or below 36 percent of your gross monthly income. Use an online debt-to-income calculator, like the one found at wellsfargo.com/goals-credit/debt-to-income-calculator. Show them the money: A Wells Fargo survey found that more than a third of people believe you need 20 percent of the home pur chase price to make a down payment. The reality is, some home financing or mortgage programs allow qualified homebuyers to put down as little as 3 percent. And for those who qualify for special mortgage programs like military veterans or those purchasing rural properties, a down payment may not be required at all. You may also be allowed to use monetary gifts from family or friends for all or part of the down payment. In addition, certain community programs offer down payment assistance, like the Wells Fargo NeighborhoodLIFT program. Keep in mind, some low down payment programs may require private mortgage insurance, which adds to the monthly payment and overall loan cost. Youll need to add that into your debt-toincome consideration. Demonstrate proof of income: Home mortgage financing programs are available for a range of incomes. The key is demonstrating your ability to repay the loan. Lenders will review your income history and require current W2s, tax returns or similar documentation. Have a rainy-day fund: Lenders want to see that you have savings or a cushion to handle unexpected expenses that come with homeownership, such as a leaky roof or failing appliance. Get pre-approved: Getting pre-approved is a good way to understand what kind of home loan product or program you may qualify for. Digital services are streamlining the process considerably. Our intuitive, mobileready technology offers homebuyers choices in how they engage in the mortgage application process. Consumers have the option to complete an application online, and still have the opportunity to speak with a home mortgage consultant if they have questions. In many cases, house hunters can actually be pre-approved immediately, says Liz Bryant, national sales manager for Wells Fargo Home Mortgage. Digital services give prospective homebuyers the ability to navigate their mortgage application where and when they choose relieving some of the pressure of making timely decisions. If youre interested in starting an application for a home mortgage or refinancing an existing property, visit wellsfargo.com/mortgage. For a smooth home-buying experience, its important to know your options, use programs designed to help you, and access services that streamline decision-making. -StatePointThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE --A dispute over the the state Agency for Health Care Administrations decision to award a Medicaid managed-care contract in Southwest Florida has turned into a court battle. Best Care Assurance, LLC, a managed-care plan affiliated with the Lee Health system, has filed a lawsuit in Leon County circuit court arguing that state officials improperly awarded a contract in June to a competing managed-care plan, Molina Healthcare of Florida., Inc. The lawsuit, filed Friday, is part of a series of legal disputes that have stemmed from the Agency for Health Care Administrations decisions this spring to award tens of billions of dollars in contracts to managed-care plans to serve Medicaid patients throughout the state. Best Care Assurance was one of four plans awarded contracts in April to serve patients in the Medicaid systems Region 8, which is made up of Charlotte, Collier, DeSoto, Glades, Hendry, Lee and Sarasota counties. Molina was not one of the four plans and filed a protest. It ultimately reached a settlement in June with agency officials that included it receiving a contract in the region. In the lawsuit, Best Care Assurance argues, in part, that the decision was improper because state law imposes a limit of four managed-care plans in the region to provide managed medical assistance services --the services provided to most Medicaid beneficiaries. The other plans selected in April to provide such services in the region were Humana Medical Plan, Inc., Sunshine State Health Plan, Inc. and WellCare of Florida, Inc., the lawsuit said. The Legislature did not accidentally place a cap on the number of MMA (managed medical assistance) plans to be selected in Region 8, the lawsuit said. Rather, the Legislature specifically set the allowable range for the number of MMA plans to be selected in Region 8 to ensure stability but allow patient choice. AHCAs actions ignore the legislative mandate, as well as the significant negative consequences to Best Care and the MMA program overall in Region 8 resulting from AHCAs action. Best Care also tried to fight the Molina contract award through a challenge in the state Division of Administrative Hearings. But in an Aug. 3 ruling, Administrative Law Judge Linzie Bogan said Best Care did not have legal standing to challenge the agency decision to award a contract to Molina or to argue that the contract violates state law. Bogan said Best Care didnt intervene in Molinas underlying protest after the April contract awards and that, as a result, Best Care did not establish standing. Best Care has filed a motion to reopen the administrative case, but Molina filed a document Aug. 16 objecting to that request. In the end, Best Care simply failed to intervene in Molinas protest proceeding and therefore waived any right Best Care contends it has to challenge Molinas settlement with AHCA and the resulting contract award to Molina, said the Molina document, which was joined by the Agency for Health Care Administration. Florida lawmakers in 2011 approved an overhaul of the Medicaid system that has led to most beneficiaries enrolling in managed-care plans. With an initial set of contracts poised to expire, the Agency for Health Care Administration went through a lengthy procurement process that led in April to it awarding new contracts in 11 regions of the state.State Medicaid contract decision spurs court fight Andrey Popov/stock.Adobe.comConflicting information can lead to difficulties in buying a home.
Arc North Florida looking to grow county client baseBy COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comFor Quinn Ban of Arc North Florida, being active is key. We can take an individual and keep them active based on their ability, education and creativity, Ban said. We may take them swimming and they do the swimming aerobics we may take them to the library, our clients actually learn flagging it helps coordination. Arc North Florida, a local resource for families and individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, is looking to expand its client base by reaching further into Columbia County. Ban became the fund raising coordinator at Arc North Florida in June, and in those two months seeing Arc in action she said shes come to learn the value of its programs. Were advocates for families because so many times families dont know where to go, what to do when they have a loved one thats disabled, said Ban, a 15-year Lake City resident. Were a great phone number to call so we can walk a family through to get where they need to be. And then we provide quality services to individuals that are intellectually and developmentally disabled. Covering five counties, Arc North Florida was established in 1981 and is a chapter of the national nonprofit The Arc of the United States. Headquartered in Live Oak, it also has offices in Baker County, where Ban said she spends some of her time. It operates across Baker, Columbia, Hamilton, Lafayette and Suwannee counties. However, Arc wants to expand its client base in Columbia County programs it offers such as adult day training, residential placement, respite care, transportation, supported living services, in-home support, personal care assistant and companion programs. The range of their care depends solely on the individual and the objectives of the family, Ban said. We may go inside the home and find out that the family needs some added extra help, assistance and we will care for the individual in the home, Ban said. Now if somebody is medically challenged we might do personal care that might be eating, that might be dressing, bathing it depends on how medically challenged the individual is. She said the ultimate goal of Arc is to help individuals live independently. To do that she said they have a series of steps in place to train for the workplace and later teach their clients to protect themselves from financial exploitation. Depending on if they are high ability, an individual can learn we will guide them and show them how to buy a home because they have the same privileges and rights that we have, Ban said. Ban gave an example of one man who went through Arc and obtained skill-sets necessary to live independently and get a job at a local retailer. She said she accompanied a specialist throughout the process and described how they taught him to buy groceries and compare prices. He gets his own cart he goes down the aisles all by himself, it was fun to watch him and it was actually very rewarding but then when we get to the checkout line we write the check, Ban said. Ban said she is currently working on procuring state funding that would provide for grant based assistance to go to potential clients based on financial need. Service prices vary on the program ranging from $30 for two hours of in-home personal care, $50 for transport to a day at Arcs training center or $100 a day for group home living. As a nonprofit, Ban said Arc accepts tax deductible donations and is partnered with Ability Supply janitorial supplies. She said proceeds from bulk orders go the organization. Further information on Arc is available at www.arcnfl.com, or by calling 386-362-7143.Activity, creativity are of key focus for Live Oak based agency. COREY ARWOOD/Lake City ReporterQuinn Ban, above, said that independent living is the goal for the clients of Arc North Florida, the organization for which she serves as fundraising coordinator.Depending on if they are high ability, an individual can learn we will guide them and show them how to buy a home because they have the same privileges and rights that we have.

Picking up skills, experience and knowledge will help you attract attention. Network, socialize and explore new people, places and pastimes.

A personal change that ensures you are looking out for your best interests emotionally, physically and financially will ease your stress and give you something to look forward to.

Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have a disagreement about when a person should be allowed to get up from the table. We have an 8-month-old son whom we both want to grow up to have good manners. We know hell soon be out of his high chair and become squirmy and not want to stay seated. My wife was raised to stay seated and be excused only after everyone is finished eating -holding everyone hostage until the last person is finished and extending dinnertime up to an hour or more. I feel its excessive, and a child would have a hard time sitting still that long. When she was little, her parents tied her to her chair so she couldnt get up until everyone finished eating. I was raised to ask to be excused after I was finished, but was welcome to stay and socialize if I liked. In my opinion, dinner should last about 30 minutes so theres time to finish chores around the house. I agree that coming to the table and leaving after 10 minutes is rude because the cook has taken great care to prepare the meal and may feel insulted if the diner gets up too quickly. Long dinners may have been acceptable in Jane Austens day, but not in todays fast-paced world. -HIGH CHAIR HOSTAGE DEAR HIGH CHAIR: Your wife appears to be extremely rigid. On the plus side, she appreciates the importance of family dinners in the home. I agree that children should be taught table manners, however, tying a kid to a chair is considered child abuse these days, and I dont recommend it. Modern parents recognize that small children have short attention spans and compensate for it in various ways. When a child is old enough to understand, the rules should be spelled out. If the children are in another persons home or a public place, materials should be provided so the child can entertain himor herself while the adults make conversation. If the child needs to get up and move around, he or she should be accompanied by a parent so other diners wont be interrupted. If a meal at home is going to be a long one, the child should be allowed to be excused from the table as you were. And because you are an adult, you should have the freedom to leave the table if you wish, too. DEAR ABBY: A woman in my social circle has called me a know-it-all and accused me of making her feel stupid. She has refused to accept my apology, canceled our carpools to events and has started challenging me at every turn of any conversation. I no longer feel comfortable accepting invitations to gatherings in her home, but frequent encounters with her are unavoidable. How should I handle confrontations with her in the future? -TRAUMATIZED TEXAN DEAR T.T.: There shouldnt be any confrontations. When you see the woman, be pleasant and keep your distance. If she tries to start an argument, tell her the problem is hers and you dont intend to make it yours -period. Then, if there are others present, devote your time to them.

4D SU NDAY, AUGUST 26, 2018 LIFE LAKE CITY REPORTER Junk in the attic or basement worth a fortune?From baseball cards and sports equipment to postcards and toys, is that junk in your attic or basement dusty treasure or just dusty? Weve all heard of families getting rich from the sale of rare memorabilia. So how can you tell if your stuff is valuable and how can you sell it, if it is? The general rule is that the older the item, the more valuable it is. 1980 is not old. 1960 is kind of old. 1910 is old, says Al Crisafulli, Auction Director at Love of the Game Auctions, an internet sports auction house that has helped many families identify and sell valuable items. In one instance, Crisafulli determined that a familys baseball bat that spent decades beside their front door to protect from intruders, was actually used by Hall of Famer Lou Gehrig -and Love of the Game Auctions sold it for them for more than $430,000. He is offering these tips to help determine if your items are valuable: Baseball cards Cards from the 1960s and earlier are collectible, and those from before the 1940s can be extremely pricey. Do they have sharp corners, no creases and retain original gloss? Do they depict star players and Hall of Famers? A Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner or Mickey Mantle will sell for more than non-stars. With particularly old cards from the 1880s and early 1900s, look for tobacco and candy brands, such as Old Judge, Piedmont, Sweet Caporal or American Caramel. Unopened packs from almost any era can be valuable. Memorabilia and Equipment Look for old advertising posters depicting sports stars and food, tobacco or sporting goods brands. This doesnt mean ads torn from magazines, but those used as store displays and for other purposes. Tin signs are highly collectible from the 1900s into the 1960s, but low-quality reproductions arent. Pre1950s catchers masks, baseball gloves and bats can be valuable, especially those endorsed by star players. Condition is important but used equipment can be valuable. When you go to sell sports items, consider a specialty auction, such as Love of the Game, which has the expertise to properly research sports pieces, and maintains lists of bidders specializing in this area so it can get top dollar for these items. More information is available at loveofthegameauctions. com. Postcards Postcards of your vacation destinations likely are worthless. But those depicting famous people, such as movie star cards and vintage baseball postcards, can be valuable. Look for early real photo postcards from the 1900s through the 1940s, which are photographs printed on postcard backs. No matter the type, the older, the better, and the more famous, the better. Old Halloween or Christmas postcards from the early 1900s can be expensive. The same goes for many intricate holdto-light postcards, where portions of scenes light up when held to strong light. Toys Look for famous characters, such as early Walt Disney items, superheroes, Star Wars, etc. The most prized toys are those in original condition with no broken pieces and paint intact. And if you have original boxes, you might strike gold! So, while youre cleaning that attic, basement or garage, dont rush to purge. Before throwing out old junk, determine if its valuable! -StatePoint Delphotostock/stock.Adobe.comSome of that junk in the attic may actually be worth something. Four vacation destinations for devoted wine loversLove wine? Build your next vacation around it! Wine regions have delicious food, beautiful views and amazing history. To select your next travel destination, get inspired by global wine brand, The Seeker, which produces wines all around the world to ensure each varietal is made in the region where it grows best. Ready to let your palate guide you? Here are four wine destinations for adventure seekers. 1. Puy de Dme, France Puy de Dme, in the Auvergne region of central France, boasts spectacular natural wonders, with over 80 volcanic craters, as well as mountains, valleys, volcanic lakes, plateaus and plains. Explore them on foot, bicycle and kayak, or take a dip in the regions thermal springs. Sometimes called Frances lost wine region, its only 100 miles from Burgundy and has a winegrowing history that began in the 6th century. Pinot Noir has been grown there since at least the 11th century, and the Pinot from these vineyards were once prized by the Popes in Avignon. The region still produces exceptional Pinot Noir thanks in part to the rich volcanic soils, warm days and cool nights. One selection to try is The Seeker Pinot Noir ($13.99), which has aromas of sweet cherry fruit melded with earth and spice, balanced acidity and ripe fine tannins. 2. Mendoza, Argentina An excellent destination for those who love variety, Mendoza is a bustling urban environment with a wealth of outdoor adventure opportunities just outside the city. It is also one of the best places in the world to drink locally-produced Malbec. In 1852, an enterprising French agronomist brought Malbec to Argentina, where the higher temperatures and unique terroir of Mendoza finally allowed this varietal to shine. Try The Seeker Malbec ($13.99) made in the foothills of the Andes Mountains where the elevation and soil produce ripened fruit. Pair this fruity, spicy wine with the regions superior wood-fire grilled beef and lamb. 3. Colchagua, Chile All wine enthusiasts should put Chiles Central Valley on their bucket lists, as the region is known for its fine red wines and traditional cuisine. Take a winery tour and enjoy the spectacular landscape while drinking some of the worlds best wines. In particular, try the Cabernet Sauvignon. While this varietal is grown in many places around the world, youll probably find a purer form of it here, where the high-altitude and extreme temperature shifts between day and night result in grapes that dont need to be blended with other varietals to round the wine out. 4. Central Coast, California Take a quintessen tial road trip through the Central Coast of California, which has something for everyone: beautiful beaches, important historical sites, family-friendly attractions and world-class cuisine. In particular, enjoy the regions Chardonnay. California is uniquely suited to the grape because its warm days allow them to fully ripen; and its cool nights and foggy mornings prevent the grapes from becoming too ripe or getting heat damaged. For a balanced, complex and harmonious wine that pairs with smoked chicken salad, four cheese pizza and spicy foods, taste The Seeker Chardonnay ($13.99), sourced from prime growing areas in the region. Cant get away? Consider selecting one of the above culinary destinations to inspire your next dinner party. With the right bottle, youre halfway there. -StatePoint COURTESYWine fans can chose from variety of vacation locations. Autistic visitors can proceed with lawsuits against DisneyThe Asssociated PressVisitors with severe autism can move ahead with their lawsuits claiming Disneys U.S. parks didnt do enough to accommodate their need for scheduled routines and no waits on its rides, according to a federal appeals court. The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last week ruled that plaintiffs in 30 lawsuits can proceed in a lower court with their claims against Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, alleging violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act. People with severe autism often have difficulties with social interaction and communication and often adhere to rigid routines. A district judge in Florida had ruled previously that Disney was accommodating the autistic visitors and dismissed the claims in 2016. The autistic visitors appealed to the court in Atlanta. Under the parks current program, Disney allows visitors with disabilities to get a special card giving them an appointment time to get on a ride after the specified time with little to no wait. The card allows them to get unlimited appoint ment times throughout the day and allows them to get on rides immediately if the wait is less than 15 minutes. Disney workers also have the discretion to hand out readmission passes to visitors with disabilities, allowing them to get back on a ride immediately. The plaintiffs said in their lawsuit that the autistic visitors still endured virtual waits, if not physical waits, that often resulted in meltdowns since people with severe autism often have an inability to wait and express distress at small changes to their routines. Disney previously had allowed visitors with disabilities to go to the front of the line but changed the program in 2013 amid reports of abuse by people without disabilities. The new program for visitors with disabilities, though, disrupted set routines on the order of rides and didnt allow autistic visitors to go on rides exactly when they wanted to, the plaintiffs said. It is the nature of the neurological disability that makes waiting an impossibility, the plaintiffs had argued. The plaintiffs said a solution would be to give disabled guests a pass guaranteeing they wouldnt have to wait more than 15 minutes for all rides. But Disney argued that solution was no different than its previous program which was subject to abuse when nondisabled visitors would hire disabled guests to join their party so they wouldnt have to wait. In allowing the lawsuits to move forward, the appeals court said that the fact-finding coming out of the trials would help determine what is considered necessary to accommodate autistic visitors need for rigid routines and no waits. The judges said that Disney didnt intentionally discriminate against the autistic visitors and that the question the district court will decide is whether Disney needs to modify its policies. In a statement, a Disney spokeswoman said the company is reviewing the decision and evaluating what next steps to take. Disney Parks have an unwavering commitment to providing an inclusive and accessible environment for all our guests, the statement said.
