And hold the hilarity. Not everyone in Lafayette County is pleased with a prank that purported to change the name of Mayo to Miracle Whip, Fla., even if it will net the town $25K in much-needed revenue.By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comThe moment of truth is approaching for 16 local candidates for local office and two Republican state House hopefuls plus a controversial county sales tax hike. Polling places for todays primary election are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The elections office is ready, were hoping for a great turnout, said Columbia County Assistant Supervisor of Elections Tomi Brown. I hope everyone gets out and votes. On the ballot will be a proposal for a one-cent sales tax increase in Columbia County, which county officials say will generate about $7.7 million per year for road maintenance and free other revenue up for construction of a new jail. The County Commission has previously vowed to increase property taxes if the sales tax fails. There are five Columbia County Commission candidates competing for two seats. Among local issues to be decided is sales tax hike for county.Election day is today in Florida; polls open and close at 7 Brown Fort White family struggles with effects of alpha-gal allergy.Temporary, unofficial name change will mean cash, courtesy Kraft Inc. By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comLAFAYETTE COUNTY Some here say Mayo is just Mayo, while others in the small town prefer Miracle Whip, the new substitute moniker adopted short-term in exchange for corporate cash. Over the weekend Mayo was inundated with the creamy condiment, and transformed by food giant Kraft Heinz into the town of Miracle Whip, Florida. It was a marketing ploy orchestrated secretly by town officials and a firm working for the mayonnaise alternative over a period of about a month and a half. They have passed out so much Miracle Whip that you wouldnt believe, said Vi Johnson, who was sitting in her downtown business with her cockatiel Mr. Chips around noon Monday. We could probably spread it all over the town and still have some left over. Johnson said her antique thrift store,The Dust Catcher, had been in downtown Mayo in full view of the landmark water tower for three decades. Now that tower bears a new name. Its a joke, just for two days until they can get the Miracle Whip back off [it], Johnson said. By Monday most residents in the Lafayette County town of roughly 1,200 that sits just over the Suwannee River were in on what was dubbed a joke by the towns mayor Ann Murphy. For Kraft Heinz it was a product-promo palooza for the companys signature spread, and the town hoped to cash in on the gravy train to the tune of $15,000-$25,000 in promised town beautification dollars. In an interview with The Associated Press, Mayos mayor ran with the concept, insisting it would be a good idea to make the name change permanent. We arent going to be boring Mayo anymore. We are going to be Miracle Whip! Ann Murphy said. I definitely think this will put us on the map. Johnson approved. I think its great, I really do, she said. Business-wise here since the dollar stores came in our businesses have really suffered, all the businesses. People just dont stop.By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comThe tick bite was tiny. The lifestyle change wasnt. Biting into a burger or steak means risking life-threatening breathing problems and an ER visit. Pork chops are off limits, too, or else dizziness, blurred vision and fainting might be next. Even milk and cheese arent safe. If it comes from a mammal, Raymond Peeler can go into anaphylactic shock from eating or drinking it. Plagued by mysterious medical episodes with no diagnosis, the 55-year-old from the Fort White area suffered for years before getting an answer the alpha-gal allergy, a lifelong reaction to mammal products triggered by a bite from a lone star tick. Anything that comes from any animal that gives live birth, Peeler said. It takes a lot of getting used to, but its a relief knowing this change in my diet will change everything. Doctors have only recently gotten better at identifying the allergy, But some are upset, saying it degrades town.

TU ESDAY, AUAU G USTUS T 28, 2018 ADVERTISEMENT L AA K EE CI TYTY R EE POR TETE R 3 A THESE STATEMENTS HAVE NOT BEEN EVALUATED BY THE U.S. FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION. THIS PRODUCT IS NOT INTENDED TO DIAGNOSE, TREAT, CURE OR PREVENT ANY DISEASE. RESULTS NOT TYPICAL. A patented pill costing less than $1 a dose stands to help millions of men with failing sex lives; no prescription will be requiredBy Ray Wilson Associated Health Press AHP A new sex pill is set to take the spotlight with the Viagra patent about to expire. But unlike the former, it wont require a prescription and is priced just under a $1 a dose. The new pill called Vesele is part of a new class of performance enhancers for men, which work instantaneously on the body and mind triggering arousal and rmer, harder erections. Formulated with a special compound known as an accelerator, Vesele can transport its active ingredients faster and more efciently into the blood stream, where it begins to work its magic. The patented ingredient blend initiates a process known as vasodilation, which causes arteries and vessels throughout the body to expand. This allows blood to ow directly to penis and genitals, resulting in harder erections which last longer. Cialis and Viagra are based around a simlilar concept. But what makes Vesele so remarkable, and what these other sex pills cant do, is that also directs a small portion of this blood ow to the brain, which creates feelings of intense arousal. In laymens terms, users become incredibly excited and turned on. This is why the makers of Vesele say their pill has worked so effectively in clinical trials. It stimulates the two most important organs for great sex, the penis and the brain.The Brain Erection ConnectionUntil now, medical researchers did not fully understand the brain-erection connection. It has now been made clear with Vesele. When both are supplied with a constant blood ow, men are harder and rmer for longer...and have unbelievable sex drives. Most of the research and treatment methods for mens sexual failures have focused on physiological factors and have neglected the emotional ones. For the leading sex drugs to work, like Cialis and Viagra, you need visual stimulation explains Dr. Henry Esber, the creator of Vesele. And although they work for some men, the majority experience absolutely no fulllment during sex. According to research published by the National Institute of Health, 50% of men taking these drugs stop responding or cant tolerate their side effects...and on top of that they spend $50 per pill and it doesnt even work half the time. This is what makes Vesele so different and effective. It oods the blood stream with key ingredients which cause arteries all over the body to expand. The patented accelerator speeds up this process even more. The result is a rush of blood ow to the penis and brain, helping to create an impressive erection and a surging desire for sex. Often, this is all men need to get going. And when taken regularly, many men say they are energized and aroused all day.Great Sex At Any AgeWith the conclusion of their latest human clinical use survey trial, Dr. Esber and his team are now offering Vesele in the US. And regardless of the market, its sales are exploding. Men across the country are eager to get their hands on the new pill and according to the research, they should be. In the trial above, as compared to baseline, men taking Vesele saw a staggering 85% improvement in erection hardness over a four-month period. Their erections also lasted twice as long. These same men also experienced an astounding 82% increase in the desire for sex (libido/sex drive) and an even greater improvement in overall satisfaction and ability to satisfy their partners. Many men taking Vesele described feeling horny and aroused through the day. The anticipation before sex was amazing. They were also easily turned on. Their moods were more upbeat and positive, too.Faster Absorption into the Blood StreamVesele is made up of three specialized ingredients: two clinical strength vasodilators and a patented absorption enhancer often called an accelerator. According to an enormous amount of clinical data, each is very safe. Research shows that with age, many men lose their desire and interest in sex. They also struggle to produce an erection rm enough for penetration. And although there are many theories as to why this happens (including a loss in testosterone) one thing is certain, inadequate blood ow is virtually always to blame. Thats why sex drug manufacturers focus on blood ow, it makes your erection hard. But whats more surprising, and what these manufacturers have failed to consider, is that lack of blood ow can also kill your sex drive. Thats because blood supplies energy for the brain. This energy is required for creating brainwaves that cause excitability and arousal. Studies show the Vesele stimulates the entire cardiovascular system, including the arteries that lead to both the brain and penis. The extreme concentration of the ingredients combined with the accelerator ensures that this process starts quickly. The sexual benets of Vesele are also multiplied as its ingredients build up in the system over time. This is why many men take it every single day. Recent Studies Show Positive Effects on Women In the same study referenced throughout, Vesele was also shown to have an amazing (and somewhat surprising) effect on women too. Thats because the same arteries and vessels that carry blood and oxygen to the brain and genitals are the same in men and women. In our most recent study, women taking Vesele saw a stunning 52% improvement in arousal and sex drive. Perhaps more impressive, they also experienced a 57% improvement in lubrication. You can imagine why some couples are taking Vesele together. Everything feels better. Everything works better. Everyone performs better. Its truly amazing. A New Frontier of Non-Prescription Sex PillsWith daily use, Vesele is helping men (and women) restore failing sex lives and overcome sexual lets downs without side effect or expense. Through a patented absorption enhancer, the Vesele formula hits the bloodstream quickly, resulting in phenomenal improvements in erection rmness and hardness. By boosting blood ow to the brain, users also experience sexual urges and arousal they often havent felt in years. Where to Find VeseleThis is the ofcial release of Vesele in Florida.

Myth-creation is a distinctive attribute of Americans. One of my favorite movies is The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. John Fords classic told the story of a man played by Jimmy Stewart, who was given credit for killing a homicidal thug in a small western town. In fact, it wasnt Stewart who killed villainous Lee Marvin but John Wayne. No one knew it, though, because Wayne was hidden from view when he pulled the trigger. Stewart got the glory, and a myth was born at the expense of a more complicated truth. This celluloid masterpiece says more about the American character than most of the sociological theses published over the last century. We want heroes, and we want them to be perfect, and we have an amazing ability to forgive them for not living up to their reputations. Even when presented with strong evidence that these heroes have been lying to us, we defend them. Some might call that honorable, but I call it hypocrisy. And with all due respect to mom, apple pie, and the flag, we Americans have perfected the art of being hypocritical. That became obvious with such painful clarity this past month, with three glaring and highly-publicized examples. The first case of what I call #MeTwoFaced is Asia Argento, the Italian actress most recently known as the girlfriend of Anthony Bourdain. Asia, while an accomplished artist in her own right, has always been defined by the men she knew, including her famous father Dario, who is known as the king of horror. It was revealed this week that Asia paid almost $400,000 in what some have called hush money to a young man who claimed she molested him when he was 17. Asia, after an initial silence, came out and started attacking the victim as a liar, saying that she never had a sexual relationship with him. She even insinuated that the young man had essentially tried to blackmail her dead boyfriend Bourdain because she knew he was a man of great perceived wealth. Imagine if Bill Cosby had made those claims about his accusers. Imagine if Al Franken had said that hed been asked to grope the woman in the photo ... by the woman herself. Imagine if Kevin Spacey had said that the male actor hed allegedly assaulted had asked for it. Imagine, please, that the accuser was a woman and that she was treated the way that Asia Argento, the strident Joan of Arc of the #MeToo movement was treating an actor who, at the age of 7, had played her son. We would have hordes of ladies in black dresses and linked arms singing some random song from Lilith Fair. Then we have Gretchen Carlson, the former Miss America who wrote a book about female solidarity, and who has now been credibly accused of bullying the current Miss America, Cara Mund, and other women. So Asia Argento, who demanded that we believe victims of abuse, says the man accusing her of rape is a liar. And a female professor says the student she is accused of harassing wanted it. And a woman who says she was bullied is accused of bullying. I think its time to do to the #MeToo movement what John Wayne did to Liberty Valance.

Dont let yours go to waste. Then they point out just how easy it is to mark and submit a ballot. Were here to tell you its not that simple. Not if you want to make a difference in your town, state or nation. That takes more than filling in a bubble on a card. It requires educating yourself on the issues and making an informed choice.

The polls are open till 7. Get on it. Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY On this date: In 1609, English sea explorer Henry Hudson and his ship, the Half Moon, reached present-day Delaware Bay. In 1862, the Second Battle of Bull Run (also known as Second Manassas) began in Prince William County, Virginia, during the Civil War; the result was a Confederate victory. In 1916, Italy declared war on Germany in World War I. In 1922, the first-ever radio commercial aired on station WEAF in New York City; the 10-minute advertisement was for the Queensboro Realty Co., which had paid a fee of $100. In 1941, Japans ambassador to the U.S., Kichisaburo Nomura, presented a note to President Franklin D. Roosevelt from the Japanese prime minister, Prince Fumimaro Konoye, expressing a desire for improved relations; Roosevelt responded that he considered the note a step forward. In 1945, the Allies began occupying Japan at the end of World War II. In 1963, as more than 200,000 listened, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his I Have a Dream speech in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. To the Editor: Congratulations to Liz Horne, Supervisor of Elections, and her entire staff. She is doing a splendid job of administrating our elections. She graciously offers numerous opportunities for the residents of Columbia County to be afforded easy access to voting. Everyone has the opportunity to pick up their phone and request and absentee ballot to be mailed their home mailbox. Everyone has to eat, and they could stop by the Supervisor of Elections (SOE) and vote while they are in town shopping. We vote at the Lulu Community Center so we conveniently stopped by the SOE, while we were out grocery shopping, to cast our ballots. Ron Williams, under the present BOCC group, completely orchestrates every move the current county commissioners make. But yet he appears to have a need to supervise every aspect of all county departments. Mrs. Horne, you and your staff are doing a fantastic job. You may as well accept the fact that absolutely nothing you do is going to satisfy Ron Williams. Of course, your staff could go door to door to every home in county and hand deliver ballots and wait while each individual votes. But I am not sure that would even make him happy. Jacquelyn B. Hunter Lake CityCommissioner Williams never satisfied Christine M. Flowerscowers1961@gmail.comChristine M. Flowers is a lawyer and columnist for the Philadelphia Daily News. In 2015, Sen. John McCain told an interviewer he had chosen his own epitaph. His gravestone will read: He served his country.That is exactly what the Arizona senator did, faithfully and imperfectly, passionately and stubbornly, lovingly and brashly, all his life. McCain died of brain cancer Satur day at the age of 81. He was a uniquely American character, most notable for his soldiering, Senate service and two unsuccessful runs for the presidency. His career and sensibilities spanned multiple eras and vast societal changes, and evolved with the times. His humor and irascible unpredictability kept McCain careening over a r oller-coaster of popularity across the political spectrum, never more so than in the final chapter, his proper and principled opposition to President Donald Trump. After the president held a joint news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin last month, McCain said: No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant. As a Navy pilot in the Vietnam War, McCain was shot down and captured. He served 5 { years in a Hanoi prison, tortured brutally. Offered early release in deference to his father and grandfather, both admirals, McCain refused to leave before men imprisoned longer. That is part of his legend. But so is McCains record at the U.S. Naval Academy. He graduated 894th of 899 students. His behavior as a midshipman, he gleefully admitted, wasnt much better than his grades. McCains mistakes were painful. His vote in the House of Repr esentatives in 1983 against a national holiday r ecognizing the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. haunted him for 25 years, until he admitted it was a terrible error. He was one of the Keating Five, senators implicated in the savings and loan scandals. The Senate Ethics Committee ruled that while he br oke no laws, he showed bad judgment by stepping in with regulators on behalf of campaign contributor Charles Keating, a judgment McCain agr eed with. His fight to r eform campaign finance laws and stop the kind of bad behavior he had committed showed both growth and a unique humility. In 2000, McCain took aim at the Republican presidential nomination on a bus called the Straight Talk Express, electrifying the nation, and his loss to establishment favor-ite George W. Bush seemed only to cement popular affection for him. But in 2008, as the GOP nominee, he could not stop the juggernaut of Barack Obamas campaign. His selection of running mate Sarah Palin was a ghastly error, yet McCain never criticized her. In addition, his willingness to stand against his own supporters when they derided Obama, vouching for his opponents quality of character and love of country, was noble. John McCain served his country and his ideals as best he could, for as long as he could. He picked his epitaph, and he earned it.John McCain an American originalNewsday

Mayo Town Hall was bustling Monday, filled with cameras, lighting and black clad members of the New York City marketing company, VaynerMedia, preparing to mic up the mayor for her time in the spotlight. Were obviously in marketing and were kind of just filming interviews with the townspeople about what we did, said producer Paul Rubin. We came up with this idea. Rubin was at the Saturday event held in a local park where the mayor spoke and visitors were fed a variety of Miracle Whipbased dishes. The mayor read a proclamation proclaiming the town now is Miracle Whip and we kind of just you know treated the tangy people of Mayo, Florida to a barbecue, Rubin said. You know, just kind of brought people out to celebrate them and who they are. He said he made his first trip from NYC to Mayo in June to meet with the mayor and town clerk and develop the plan. The videos proposed air date is set for mid September and is aimed to first appear online. There was some confusion among the business owners and residents Monday about just how long the towns water tower would read Miracle Whip. While most said they anticipated only a few days, Rubin said the goal was for something more permanent. Were hoping for as long as possible, Rubin said. Thats the hope, I think the response has been really good. Some residents and store owners approved of the name change in a swap for renovation money. Some businesses even let the film crew change their business names with temporary signs. On Monday, Mayo Hardwares storefront sign read Miracle Whip Hardware. I think its a commercial, a Miracle Whip commercial is what we think, said Alan and Patricia Marzloff, answering in tandem. Theyre the husband and wife owners of Mayo Hardware, which has been in downtown Mayo for almost 30 years. Were not really positive to be honest with you, its a big publicity stunt that may be good for the town. We are just going with the flow. Lifelong residents Sabrina Craig, 30, and Trudy Thomas, 70, were walking downtown around noon. Sabrina said she was supportive of the mayor because she knew it was a joke and since it was presented us such she was OK with the idea. Thomas took a different view. I been here all my life and all I know is Mayo, Florida, and see we got these kids coming up and when they get ready to go to college the children will pick at them because they live in Miracle Whip, she said. Another woman who didnt wish to be named said Mayo would always be just Mayo. A small body shop and automotive accessories dealer just two blocks from the water tower said he thought it was a funny idea and one he was fine with, but hed heard from others who were not. Theres a bunch of people that are upset about it, they hate it, because its a change and its different, said Lee Lawson, owner of Auto Unique. The secrecy, thats part of their problem too is that they didnt know it was happening and wanted their opinion put out on it. 6A TU ESDAY, AUAU G USTUS T 28, 2018 LOCAL L AA K EE CI TYTY R EE POR TETE R MAYOContinued From 1AWhats in a name? Money, for oneaccording to medical journals, and the risk of developing it is growing along with the tick population. Peeler was diagnosed in January 2017. And hes not the only family member to have to restructure their eating habits. His 31-year-old son, Allen Peeler, was diagnosed about a month ago. At least now theres a culprit behind the symptoms. I felt bad that hes going to have to deal with it, Raymond said. But I also felt good that we know how. Alice Peeler, 53, said her husbands symptoms appeared about seven years ago. The couple had traveled to Georgia for their anniversary. Just after dinner, while they were riding in a shuttle van, he turned to her. He looked at me and just said, I feel funny, Alice said. Then he basically turned white, passed out, and I just couldnt get a pulse. She feared it was a heart attack. I thought he was dying right in front of me, she said. I absolutely thought the love of my life was dying. Raymond remembers coming to as he was being loaded in an ambulance. Hardly able to breathe, he said. Just a very, very hard time getting in air. By the time he was in a hospital, Raymond said he felt fine, other than the fatigue. It was just a very weird chain of events, he said. Raymond was transferred to a hospital in Jacksonville. Doctors suspected the episode was cardiac related, but found nothing wrong with his heart and sent him home after four days. They said, it may happen again, it may not happen again, we dont know, he recalled. There were at least 10 more similar episodes over the next six years, Alice said. We had no idea what was going on, and its just terrifying, she said. Theyd send us home, a best-of-luckto-you type of thing, she said. And then wed be right back, doing the same thing over again. Being in the dark was the worst part, Raymond said. The anxiety puts you through the roof, he said. Not knowing whats causing it, not knowing if your next minute is the one you may or may not come out of. Symptoms included fatigue way beyond anything normal, blurred vision, hives, stomach problems and in serious cases, anaphylaxis. The family started putting the pieces together after Raymonds doctor told him red meat could be causing problems for his heart. The advice was unrelated to any of his alpha-gal attacks. He quit eating beef in November 2014, giving up pork as well. Raymond still ate venison, which gave him hives, but the other problems subsided for the 18 months he stuck with the new diet. He eventually went back to old eating habits, after a doctor gave him the green light. The worst attack came at what is marketed as the happiest place on earth. In 2016, while at Disney World, Raymond went into full cardiac arrest with no heartbeat, Alice said. He was unconscious and flown to Florida Hospital Orlando, where he depended on a ventilator for four days. Doctors feared the worst. Seeing your husband and best friend lifeless and loaded into an ambulance and then helicopter does something to you, she said. In late 2016, he averaged about one moderate or severe episode a month for five months straight, his wife said. I was at my wits end, Alice said. I just got down on my knees and cried out to the Lord to just show us and tell us whats going on. She couldnt help but notice the episodes coincided with him eating certain kinds of meat, so she did an internet search for beef allergies and learned about alpha-gal. An allergist at Mayo Clinic ran a test, which came back positive for the tick-borne allergy, the couple said. They both changed their lifestyle around the allergy. Everything from informing restaurants about the condition to making sure he doesnt take any medication containing gelatin. There was a learning curve at first, Alice said. But it gets easier with time. Seafood and poultry are still OK to eat, she said, so most dishes can be modified to be alpha-gal friendly. We are approaching it with joy and making lemonade out of lemons, she said. Alpha-gal is short for alpha-galactose, a sugar found in mammal products. Researchers often struggled to identify the alpha-gal allergy as a cause in cases of anaphylactic shock, according to a study from the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology published in July. The study looked at 218 cases of anaphylaxis and linked a third of them to the allergy. There are no readily available statistics on alpha-gal from the Centers for Disease Control, but the organization did find that tick-borne illnesses in general tripled between 2004 and 2016. Climate change has allowed ticks to expand their range, leading to a population boom, according to CDC. The lone star tick is most common in the South, but it can be found throughout much of the United States. Its habitat stretches from central Texas east toward the Atlantic Ocean and from Florida north to New England. TICKSContinued From 1A SS he feared it was a heart a ttack.

By BOB FERRANTE Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Deondre Francois is back in the drivers seat. The junior quarterback beat out James Blackman and Bailey Hockman for the opportunity to start for No. 19 Florida State in the season opener against No. 20 Virginia Tech on Sept. 3. Coach Willie Taggart made the announcement on Monday prior to practice. In every scrimmage weve had, hes been really impressive, Taggart said. And the same thing in practice. And they all have. Its been a good competition. But I think when you look at the overall body of work and when theyre in there running the offense, we feel like Deondre gives us the best shot. Francois threw for 3,350 yards, 20 touchdowns and seven interceptions in 2016 when he was named the Atlantic Coast Conferences rookie of the year. He suffered a season-ending knee injury last year in the Seminoles opener against Alabama and had surgery three days later to repair the patellar tendon in his left knee. Francois was limited during spring practices but was cleared for full participation when the Seminoles began preseason practices. Taggart said he informed all three quarterbacks about the decision on Sunday. When hes in there running the offense, its a lot more efficient, a lot less mistakes, Taggart said. Thats important when playing the position. Blackman had stepped in to start after Francois surgery and the competition has been viewed as one of Lake City Reporter SPORTS Tuesday, August 28, 2018 ww w.lakecityreporter.com Section B Story ideas?

PREP VOLLEYBALL: Keystone Heights 3, Columbia 2 COLLEGE FOOTBALL: FloridaFILEFlorida quarterback Feleipe Franks scrambles up the field against LSU on Oct. 7, 2017. Florida names Franks starting QB for opener By MARK LONGAssociated PressFeleipe Franks mobility landed him the starting quarterback job at Florida. Coach Dan Mullen named Franks the teams starter to begin the season, saying Monday that his ability to extend plays, some of his athleticism right now, will give us the best opportunity to win games. Its not exactly a glowing endorsement for Franks, who will take the first snap when the Gators open against Charleston Southern on Saturday night. Franks, a 6-foot-6 sophomore who started eight games in 2017, edged Kyle Trask in a competition that started in March and lasted through fall camp. Obviously, hes got a strong arm, Mullen said. He can do some different things, make throws that a lot of people cant just on pure talent. I think hes got very good athletic ability. That can show in his ability to run the ball, show in his ability to scramble and extend plays. Hes got good size to be a physical player. Hes not worried. Hes not nervous about being a physical player. Hes got some toughness that way. When you look at those things, those are some things that well build on. Franks threw for 1,438 yards in 11 games last season, finishing with nine touchdowns and eight interceptions. He had a few highlights, including a 63-yard touchdown pass on the final play to beat Tennessee 26-20 and a 79-yard run against Texas A&M a month later that was the longest by a Florida quarterback in school history. Franks also was benched twice, once in favor of Luke Del Rio and again later in the year for Malik Zaire. His confidence is really high, receiver Josh Hammond said. Hes been through the worst and he feels like its only up from now. Hes definitely really confident and just ready to Francois tabbed as FSUs starting QBJIM RASSOL/Sun Sentinel/TNSFlorida State quarterback Deondre Francois (12) drops back to pass against Michigan during the Orange Bowl on December 30, 2016, at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.

Marqise Lee will have season-ending knee surgery and be placed on injured reserve, coach Doug Marrone said Monday. Lee, who led the team in receptions in 2017, was carted off the field Saturday night after Atlanta Falcons cornerback Damontae Kazee delivered a helmet-first hit to his knee. Tests confirmed what everyone in the stadium expected after seeing Lees knee buckle: The injury was clearly severe. Marrone declined to provide specifics about Lees injury but said the team has no plans to pursue a free-agent replacement. I think we feel comfortable with what we have now, Marrone said.

She wanted to see how her young squad could handle a team full of club players. Even in a loss, she learned plenty and then some. Columbia went back and forth with Keystone Heights all night before ultimately falling 3-2 in a tiebreaker (25-16, 15-25, 20-25, 25-21, 15-10) on its home floor. The trio of Madison Heskett, Jessi Yeldell and Emily Loose led the comeback for the Indians, who rallied back after dropping the second and third sets. Heskett led Keystone Heights (2-0) offensively with 26 kills while Yeldell dominated with her serve, delivering 11 aces. Loose added two more aces to go with six kills, with four of those points coming in the critical final set. Those girls play club. They play year round. A lot of their players do, Andrews said.

On a Day 1 that featured the major tournament debut of 25-second serve clocks, Halep blamed opening-round jitters, a recurring theme throughout her career. The reigning French Open champion has now lost her first match at 12 of 34 career major appearances, a stunningly high rate for such an accomplished player. Haleps departure means she cant stand in the way of Serena Williams, who could have faced Halep in the fourth round. Williams, the 23-time major champion who missed last years U.S. Open because she gave birth on Sept. 1, returned with a flourish, following singer Kelly Clarksons opening night performance in Arthur Ashe Stadium with a 6-4, 6-0 victory over Magda Linette under the lights. Williams, a six-time winner at Flushing Meadows, moved a step closer to a possible third-round matchup against her older sister, two-time winner Venus, who defeated 2004 champion Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-3, 5-7, 6-3. Others making the second round included defending champion and No. 3 seed Sloane Stephens, two-time finalist Victoria Azarenka, and two-time major champ Garbine Muguruza. Four seeded men lost in the after noon, including No. 8 Grigor Dimitrov against three-time major champion Stan Wawrinka, who also beat him in the first round of Wimbledon, No. 16 Kyle Edmund and No. 19 Roberto Bautista Agut. Andy Murray, whose three major titles include the 2012 U.S. Open, played his first Grand Slam match in more than a year and won, eliminating James Duckworth 6-7 (5), 6-3, 7-5, 6-3.Ginobili, a 4-time champ with Spurs, retires at 41(AP) Manu Ginobili retired at age 41 Monday after a fabulous journey in which he helped the San Antonio Spurs win four NBA championships in 16 seasons with the club. The left-handed guard with the quick move and sure shot had a pro career that lasted 23 seasons in all, starting with stints in Italy and his native Argentina. He came to San Antonio in 2002 and formed what was a Big 3 with the Spurs, alongside Tim Duncan and Tony Parker. That era is now officially over: Duncan has been retired, and Parker elected this summer to sign with the Charlotte Hornets. Ginobili, the No. 57 pick in the 1999 draft, averaged 13.3 points and 3.8 assists in 1,057 regular-season games. He was a two-time All-Star and was the leagues Sixth Man of the Year in 2008.MLBAMERICAN LEAGUE East Division W L P ct GB Bost on 90 42 .682 New Y ork 83 48 .634 6 Tampa Ba y 70 61 .534 19 Tor onto 60 71 .458 29 Baltimore 38 94 .288 52 Cen tral Division W L P ct GB Cleveland 74 56 .569 Minnesota 61 69 .469 13 Detr oit 53 78 .405 21 Chicago 52 79 .397 22 Kansas C ity 40 91 .305 34 West D ivision W L P ct GB Houston 80 50 .615 Oakland 79 52 .603 1 Sea ttle 74 57 .565 6 Los A ngeles 63 68 .481 17 Te xas 58 74 .439 23 NATIONAL LEA GUE East Division W L P ct GB Atlan ta 73 57 .562 Philadelphia 70 61 .534 3 Washingt on 66 66 .500 8 New Y ork 58 72 .446 15 Miami 53 79 .402 21 Cen tral Division W L P ct GB Chicago 76 53 .589 St Louis 73 58 .557 4 Milw aukee 73 59 .553 4 Pittsbur gh 64 67 .489 13 Cincinna ti 56 75 .427 21 West D ivision W L P ct GB Ar izona 72 58 .554 Color ado 71 59 .546 1 Los Angeles 70 61 .534 2 San Francisco 65 67 .492 8 San Diego 50 83 .376 23 Sunday s Games Philadelphia 8, Toronto 3 Chicago White Sox 7, Detroit 2 Tampa Bay 9, Boston 1 Oakland 6, Minnesota 2 Cleveland 12, Kansas City 5 San Francisco 3, Texas 1 Houston 3, L.A.

(AP) Odell Beckham Jr. of the New York Giants is now the NFLs highest-paid wide receiver. A person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Monday the team agreed to a five-year contract extension with the three-time Pro Bowler. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the Giants have not announced the deal, which comes less than two weeks before the season opener against Jacksonville. While terms were not disclosed, the deal with the 25-year-old, 2014 first-rounder is worth about $95 million with $65 million guaranteed. COURTESYThe U9 Stingers competitive team traveled to Jacksonville this past weekend to attend their first tour nament as a team. The Stingers (3-0-1) placed first after four matches of play in full sided 7v7 style play. Shortly after beginning the second half of play with 7-2 score, Blake Lee managed to score the last goal to end the game by mercy rule. You fought to be here, now its time to take what you want. Win at all costs, Coach Cyril Weatherspoon said just before kickoff of championship game. Front row: Blake Lee (from left), Colyn Weatherspoon, Christian Cofield, Morrisa Mock, Ty Handy, Ryan Moore, Benny Acosta, and Carlos Ortiz. Back row: Cyril Weatherspoon. get out and compete. Franks taking so long to secure the job could be considered an indictment of his ability, especially since Trask wasnt a starter in high school, missed all of last season following foot surgery and was slowed in camp by a blister on his throwing hand. Mullen kept the job open until game week, giving Trask every opportunity to close the gap. It never happened, and now Franks will start Floridas opener for the second consecutive season. What we looked at is we have some young quarterbacks that I think all have really bright futures in their development, Mullen said. Theyre a long way (off). All of them are a long way from finished product of what we need to see. Franks has ideal size and an NFLcaliber arm. But his accuracy and decision-making ability had him looking lost at times in 2017. Mullen has repeatedly praised Franks attitude, but he also made it clear he has to make major strides to get to the level that Alex Smith (Utah), Chris Leak (Florida), Tim Tebow (Florida) and Dak Prescott (Mississippi State) did under Mullens guidance. The Gators have had 12 starting quarterbacks since Tebows departure in 2010 John Brantley, Jeff Driskel, Jacoby Brissett, Trey Burton, Tyler Murphy, Skyler Mornhinweg, Will Grier, Treon Harris, Luke Del Rio, Austin Appleby, Franks and Malik Zaire and none has proven to be a long-term solution for the teams long-standing problem. None of them threw more than 12 touchdown passes in any season, and Florida has ranked no higher than 83rd in total offense since the 2009 season. The Gators finished six of those eight years ranked in triple digits. Mullen was hired, in part, to fix Floridas floundering offense. Franks is getting the first shot at making it happen. He continues to grow within, making his reads, how fast he makes his reads, the accuracy, Mullen sad. I know everybody hates it, but its the unspectacular plays that quarterbacks make that make them great quarterbacks. ... They have to learn to make the unspectacular ones on a daily basis.FILEFlorida quarterback Feleipe Franks throws under pressure against Georgia on Oct. 28, 2017. GATORS Continued From 1B

LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER ADVICE & COMICS TUESDAY, AUGUST 28, 2018 3B CIPHER DEAR ABBY: I have reached a crossroads with my career. I used to love my job. I play an important role at my company, and Im good at what I do. Long term, it provides job security. However, the pay is subpar, and my recent request for a raise was denied. I havent received a raise in several years. I couldnt get a straight answer about the denial. I was told it wasnt my work performance. I have started looking elsewhere, and I have several interviews scheduled. All of them will give me a $15,000-per-year salary increase over what I currently make for doing what I do. I wasnt asking that much for a raise, not even close. But what makes this difficult is my co-workers. They are devastated at the thought of me leaving. One of them, someone Im fairly close to, was so angry he went to our boss himself without my knowledge. I dont know what he said, but he got me a raise, albeit a very small one. However, my heart is set on leaving. While I appreciate his going out on a limb for me, I now feel obligated to stay. Abby, Im having a hard time with this. Can you help? -MOVING ON IN THE EAST DEAR MOVING ON: Have a private conversation with the friend who went to bat for you. Tell him you appreciate what he did, but when your boss refused the raise you asked for -after several years of no increase at all -you realized you were no longer valued by the company. Explain that when you went job-hunting you were offered far more than you have been earning, and this will be a step up for you. It doesnt have to mean the end of your relationship with him or the others who care about you. It might stimulate him to go job-hunting, too. DEAR AB BY: Years ago I was sexually assaulted by a friend of a friend. Ill call the man Pete and the friend Katie. I immediately told Katie about it, and we didnt hang out with Pete much after that. Life went on, and I forgot about it. I recently learned that Katie is engaged to Pete now. They are living in another state, and she asked for my address so she can send me an invitation to their wedding. Im not planning on attending, but how should I tell her Im not coming? We havent been close in years, but she was a bridesmaid in my wedding. Should I just send the RSVP card back with a no, or should I let her know upfront? -CAUGHT OFF GUARD IN VIRGINIA DEAR CAUGHT: I assume that after Katie marries the friend who sexually assaulted you, your relationship will be over. While you may have repressed the memory until now, I find it hard to believe that all three of you had an attack of amnesia. Theres no need to contact her at this point to remind her of what her fiance is capable of. Just say no. If she contacts you to ask why, explain it to her then.

Francois was investigated for a pair of off-field incidents and took part in a diversion program for a misdemeanor marijuana charge. He moved back on campus and has strengthened his relationship with teammates. Taggart said hes been doing everything weve asked him to do and more. As a true freshman, Blackman threw for 2,230 yards, 19 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Hockman took a redshirt in 2017, his first year on campus, and often ran the Seminoles scout team. Taggart thinks Blackman and Hockman will be ready if called upon. I think with a guy like James, and just going through what he went through last year, he understands hes got to be ready and not sit around or pout, Taggart said. Just like that, he could be in the game. And the same thing with Bailey. Hes the same way: hes going to work and compete and make sure hes ready to go as well. Francois wasnt made available to the media on Monday but has spoken a few times during the preseason. He said the competition has made each quarterback better. Im just doing my best every day to be the best quarterback I can be for this team, Francois said recently. We all compete against each other every day, and we all love each other. Were fighting for a starting position, but any level of football you have to fight for a starting position. Virginia Tech defensive coordinator Bud Foster said Sunday that he was focusing his preparations on Taggarts system instead of figuring out who would be the quarterback. I think theyre going to run the offense that weve seen at Oregon or South Florida. So, we are not really thinking about who will be playing quarterback, Foster said. Theyre still Florida State and theyre still extremely dynamic. FSU Continued From 1B

6B TU ESDAY, AUGUST 28, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER opener. Robinson signed with Chicago in free agency. Lee is nearly a lock to be back with the Jags since his $7.25 million salary in 2019 is guaranteed. The Jaguars will miss him this fall, although its unclear how much considering Marrones offensive philosophy features a smash-mouth ground attack. Its not something that we wanted to happen again this year, second-year receiver Keelan Cole said. Its the game of football, and things happen. But it was definitely a help last year, and knowing what to do from here is also good. It being the third game of the preseason, we get more time to figure out what were going to do about that. Lee had 56 catches for 702 yards and three touchdowns last season, showing enough growth to get a four-year, $34 million contract 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 in four seasons. Without him, Cole, second-year pro Dede Westbrook, second-round draft pick DJ Chark and veteran Donte Moncrief will be asked to take on expanded roles. There are people in that room that I believe will step up, Marrone said. Although the helmet-lowering hit looked dirty, several Jaguars players said its part of the game these days. You cant be mad at (Kazee), Jaguars All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey said. You have to be mad at the NFL. Not mad at them, but that is how the rule is. People are scared to tackle normal because I guess they dont want to do helmet-to-helmet and get flagged. Added Cole: Its football. You cant get hit high. ... Its the first (year) of it, so you cant really say too much about it. If that rules been in for three years, then its something youve got to be like, Maybe you did that on purpose. But its just football. Theres really nothing you can do about that. Youve got to hit them somewhere. JAGUARS Continued From 1B and not really having played that fast of a pace offense to be able to adjust and shut things down like they did. It was amazing. Im extremely excited about them. Well continue building. Were way ahead in this point in our season than we were the previous seasons so its exciting. Union County transfer Erica Faulkner had teamhighs of 18 kills and nine digs to lead Columbia (2-2). Asherah Collins was also a menace offensively and defensively as well, scoring 16 kills to go with nine blocks. Faulkner knew Keystone Heights would be a tough opponent from her time at Union County, where she also lost to the Indians several times in five sets. I knew they would be a hard team because theyre experienced and know how to play volleyball, Faulkner said. Heskett scored six of her kills in the tiebreaker to take over the match. With Keystone Heights leading 4-3 early, she pounded three straight kills before Loose served two straight aces that was followed by another kill from Heskett. Back-to-back hitting errors ended the the 6-0 run but Columbia could just never gather enough momentum to rally back. Yeldell blocked the next shot for a point, Heskett delivered another kill and the Lady Tigers never got closer than four points the rest of the set. We stopped talking a lot with our serve-receive and thats one of the main components, Faulkner said. With serve-receive you have to talk or balls fall. We shanked about five or six balls in a row in the last set because we werent talking. The Lady Tigers appeared to be in control of the match after three sets. They never trailed in the second, jumping out to an 11-1 lead, before battling off the Indians in an intense third set that saw the Lady Tigers nearly blow a sixpoint before scoring four of the final five points to take the set thanks to three straight kills from Faulkner, Collins and Madeline Walker. Danielle Thomson helped key Columbias offense during those two sets and finished the night with 30 assists. But Keystone Heights jumped out to a 7-2 lead in the fourth set and only trailed once the rest of the night when Columbia briefly held a 1-0 advantage in the final frame. You take the momentum from two and three and you might take it a little bit for granted. That was good for them to learn early on, that theyve got to keep momentum going and cant take their foot off the pedal, Andrews said. Columbia travels to Forest tonight for a District 4-7A matchup before traveling to Gainesville on Thursday for another district bout. I told them in the huddle when we broke down that I didnt schedule easy games, Andrews said. I can go out and schedule the easier schools to get those Ws but theres no way thats going to help us against Forest and GHS. As long as we keep building and getting better from this point to districts, were going to be competitive. Win or lose, I want them to play this style. I want them to play up to this level. Note: The FHSAA said Tuesday that Columbias two preseason wins will not count towards the schools overall record, which was reflected by the teams record earlier in the story.
