TO NYNY BRIBRI TT/Lake City RR eport er NN ew city manager at RR otar yJoe Helfenberger, city manager of Lake City, addresses the RR otary Club of Lake C ity at noon Thursday at the First Baptist Church Fellowship Hall. Helfenberger, who was hired to the position last month and has 33 years experience as a munic ipal administrator, gave a presentation detailing his goals for the city and his plans to address infrastructure and recreational needs and to build a solid working relationship with the Columbia County Board of County Commissioners. TEXTSContinued From 1A Facility twice Wednesday. Intake records show that just before 11 a.m. he was jailed on $10,000 bond for burglary of an unoccupied conveyance unarmed and grand theft of less than $5,000. Later, around 6:30 p.m., he was behind bars again on $25,000 bond for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill. Separate Columbia County Sheriffs Office arrest reports show the sequence of events that began in the employee parking lot of a local timber producer off SE State Road 100. Dortly reportedly told officers the incident was sparked by $20 of promised pot that the victim, a fellow employee, never delivered on. Surveillance video from the company shows Dortly crawling through the parking lot after pilfering the vehicle around 9 a.m., the report said. The employee who reported the burglary told officers the missing items were an iPhone, $20 in cash, house keys and a bank card. Testimony from the victim indicated Dortly obtained access to his vehicle using car keys kept on hooks in a common area. Later that day, around 5:30 p.m., another depu ty was dispatched to the 1800 block of North U.S. Highway 441. When he arrived, individuals at the scene told him, Dortly, driving a silver Nissan car, had pulled up at their residence and brandished a pistol, described in the report as a, short, black gun. They told the officer he said he was going to shoot one of the victims and their cousin. The vehicle broken into earlier that day had allegedly belonged to a family member, and their testimony stated Dortly was angry about the previous arrest. After flashing the weapon and showing it was loaded, Dortly allegedly said, You and your cousin are gonna die. You messed with the wrong one. As he was leaving the residence the individuals told the officer that Dortly had said, You gonna get shot, I wanted you to know what it is from. The deputy stated he found Dortly at home and questioned him. He said he was told by Dortly that he had left to get beer from a local store between the times in question and otherwise had been at home with his family. Dortly reportedly told him he was with his cousin at the time, but when the officer was unable to obtain the cousins name he was arrested. ARRESTSContinued From 1A ations director, Dennille Decker, now blames the dispute on a miscommunication. Newly hired City Manager Joe Helfenberger and other officials met with IDP to hash out the citys obligations under a deal it made with the company last year. The city has to bury power, telephone, fiber optic and cable lines on Veterans Street, according to a November contract with IDP. The contract says nothing about Columbia Avenue. Decker previously asserted that former City Manager Wendell Johnson made a verbal agreement with IDP to cover it anyway. The November con tract explicitly forbids unwritten outside agreements, Helfenberger said previously. There are multiple contracts governing the Blanche deal none of which include Columbia Avenue utilities work, according to the city. Last week, Helfenberger told IDP that the city would fulfill its written obligations. Nothing more, nothing less. I just reiterated that the city would honor the existing contracts to the best of our ability, he said. He suggested IDP look for additional investors or apply for a state grant if it needs more cash for the work. Because the city didnt have additional money, especially in light of our budget, Helfenberger said. The city has numerous other priorities to address, Helfenberger told IDP, including costly repairs to structural issues at City Hall estimated to run as high as $1 million. With the City Hall expenses looming over us and the other obligations the city has, theres no money for anything beyond providing our current, existing services, she said. Decker was one of four IDP representatives at the meeting. It was really positive, she said. He gave us his support on the project, but unfortunately, the city just doesnt have the money. Decker now says there was a miscommunication between IDP and the city due in part to Johnsons retirement. Decker, who joined IDP at the start of August, the same time Helfenberger took office in the city, said the Columbia Avenue work was dropped from the November agreement because that portion of the project did not get funded through a Community Development Block Grant. When Johnson told IDP it would be covered anyway, it was before he learned the grant only included funding for the Veterans Street portion, Decker said. I believe that his intentions were to do it, but then the funding didnt come through, she said. But the citys utilities chief, Steve Roberts, previously told the Lake City Reporter that Johnson gave him marching orders to include Columbia Avenue in the cost estimate for the utilities work after the November agreement was signed. He said, all this goes underground, Roberts said. Thats the instructions I got. Initial estimates put the all the utilities work at $750,000, but the price tag later went down to $529,000 more than $300,000 of which was for Columbia Avenue. We realized from talking to those engineers we didnt have the money, Roberts said. The city came that close to spending the cash anyway, he added, holding his thumb and index finger about two inches apart. After taking office, Helfenberger said he asked City Attorney Fred Koberlein to look into the citys obligations in the Blanche deal. They found no commitment for work on Columbia Avenue, putting a stop to the plan. Decker said IDP cant add investors, as Helfenberger suggested, because it already signed a tax credit agreement outlining the structure of the deal. At this point in the project, a state grant is unlikely, she said. IDP is meeting with multiple utility companies next week to get an estimate for the work, Decker said. But the company doesnt expect the price tag to be feasible and is prepared to leave utilities above ground on Columbia Avenue. We still feel like the $300,000 number is high, she said. I think well just have to leave it the way it is. Johnson could not be reached for comment. As part of the November agreement, the Lake City Council gave IDP $1 million and an unsecured, interest-free $4.25 million loan to guarantee minimum occu pancy levels. BLANCHEContinued From 1Acombined 6-12 school. Were concerned that the communication might not have been appropriate, but it was never anything illegal, Carswell said. The suspension went into effect Wednesday and includes pay for now. But that could change if we determine there is sufficient evidence to move in a different direction, Carswell said. Carswell said he was unsure as to the scope of the alleged conduct. Columbia County Sheriffs Office spokesperson Murray Smith said the schools resource deputy has not launched a criminal investigation.

The voice of one man, a Vietnam war veteran who was imprisoned and tortured by the North Vietnamese in the Hanoi Hilton for 5 years, gave us a final statement near the end of his life that says it all: Before I go, Id like to see our politics begin to return to the purposes and practices that distinguish our history, from the history of other nations. Id like to see us recover our sense that we are more alike than different. What better hero, or better example of good character, stands for what our nation, and our world, needs most at this point in history? Look up character in your dictionary or on Wikipedia. If John McCains picture isnt there, I believe it should be! During his 81 years, Senator McCain of Arizona worked with politicians on both sides of the aisle, to do what he felt was right. I think Senator McCain always strived to do the right thing, and showed respect and civility to all. He had good friends irrespective of party affiliation or differences of opinion, and was never afraid to stand up for the practices and principles he stood for, during his long lifetime of public service. I can remember him graciously conceding the presidential election to Barack Obama, in a sincere effort to support the president elect and bring all Americans together, in a time our nation was more divided than ever. He proposed a national pride in the selection of leaders based not on divisive issues, but on our continuing progress as a nation dedicated to ensuring the opportunity for each of us to provide the best of human rights for all. Weve done well as voters, to find candidates who can live and demonstrate those good character traits like respect, courtesy, appreciation and civility. I hear the voices of both Democrats and Republicans speak up for showing respect and a willingness to work together, rather than continuing the trend of further dividing us. But as a nation we still have a long way to go. What can you do? Reach out to others. Listen to other opinions. Respect and consider others ideas and the principles they stand for. Lets work together to find mutual win/win solutions. Be positive in your attitudes and interactions with everyone. Refuse to allow todays negative influences to divide us. United we stand! Instead of judging or criticizing others, redefine what us and them means to you. The more you can see as us, the less there is of them. You may find that your list of enemies gets shorter. Everyone has something good and meaningful to contribute. Look for it. Support it. Come together as Team USA or Team Humanity. Thanks, Senator John McCain for your life of public servicebut most of all, thanks for bringing your message into the light: Id like to see politics begin to return to the purposes and practices that distinguish our history, from the history of other nations Id like to see us recover our sense that we are more alike than different. Another famous John, John Lennon, said, Imagine all the people, sharing all the world I hope someday youll join us, and the world will live as one.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman ANOTHER VIEW Thanks, Senator McCain Just saying OK to drugsThe U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention jarred the nation a year ago when it announced in mortifying tones that the U.S. death toll from drug overdose in 2016 had reached 60,000. On Aug. 16 the CDC released the latest estimate for 2017 and the bad news grows worse: 72,287, a 10 percent increase over 2016. Thats more than the number of deaths from automobile accidents or guns. Nearly 49,000 deaths were attributed to opioids potent painkillers whose excessive prescription by physicians has contributed to the staggering body count. Synthetic opioids like fentanyl, a super-powerful concoction often brewed in China and smuggled into the U.S. through Mexico, catch users by surprise and turn a high into unexpected death. Less lethal but still frightening is the proliferation of synthetic cannabis, or K2, which is often laced with fentanyl. Pot heads have taken to smoking it for a cheaper buzz. A batch of the stuff made the rounds in a public park in New Haven, Conn., last week. Within a few hours, dozens of ambulances were called to haul nearly 100 people to the hospital. Trendy state laws legalizing recreational marijuana are stoking the growing attitude that your highness is your business. The spreading synthetic drug menace has triggered tremors in official Washington. President Trump last week directed the Justice Department to join the dozens of states that have filed lawsuits against certain drug manufacturers for delivering mountains of pain pills. The administration is mulling a plan to force drug firms to cut production of opioids by 10 percent over next year. Cutting supply without dealing with the fundamental cause of craving could simply fuel the illegal drug trade, making it more lucrative and more violent. Congress, in its infinite weakness and faux wisdom, is drawing up criminal justice legislation that imposes mandatory minimum sentences. With drug-death rates exploding, this might encounter strong headwinds from voters who recognize it as going soft on prison time for nonviolent drug dealers, even if Congress doesnt. Whether an overdose victim buys his fix from a gun-toting kingpin or a tie-dyed peacenik who missed the last streetcar home from the 1960s, he is still stone-cold dead. Viewing ones time on earth as an opportunity to be fruitful, multiply and replenish the earth, as the Bible describes it taken by innumerable earlier generations to struggle toward a brighter existence. Most Americans can count themselves fortunate that their forebears risked all on a dangerous journey to a faraway continent with nothing but to sustain them but faith and grit. Rather than escape tough circumstances via a head trip, better to lead a productive life with a debt to blood, sweat and tears. Faith, family and freedom are not the sole ingredients of a purposeful life, but they sure beat opioids, marijuana and their synthetic knockoffs. Americans shouldnt need Donald Trump to rescue them from the 21st century zeitgeist that nudges them to just say OK to drugs. Its a matter of conscience. The causes of craving may be locked too deeply in the recesses of the human psyche for modern medicine to root out, and there will likely always be those who cannot cope with the curveballs life hurls. Society owes them compassion, but not collusion in suicide. Rather than pot shops and shooting galleries, all that society owes them is a motivational kick in the rear end. Washington TimesThe tale told by incarceration statistics in the United States is staggering. The nation, with about 5 percent of the worlds population, has 21 percent of the worlds prisoners. AfricanAmericans are incarcerated at about five times the rate of white people, often for drug-related crimes, even though study after study shows the two groups use and sell drugs at similar rates. Much of that disparity is due to unfairly harsh sentences levied against those convicted of crimes involving crack cocaine, whose use is more prevalent in the black population than the powder cocaine more commonly used by whites. The federal prison system houses about 184,000 inmates, up from 65,000 in 1990. The increase is largely due to mandatory minimum sentences adopted in 1986. And 75 percent of released prisoners end up back behind bars within five years. For years, a bipartisan consensus has grown around the idea of significant reform in the federal criminal justice and prison systems. The goal is to send fewer people to prison, keep the ones who are jailed in for shorter periods, and take concrete steps to prepare them to live law-abiding, productive lives in society once they get out, so they can stay out. Now that consensus has a chance to become change, with much of the fresh momentum coming from President Donald Trump. Most American prisoners are in state institutions, and the federal push is for ideas that are starting to work to reduce prison populations and recidivism at the state level. Trump recently held a summit with governors from states confronting prison and sentencing reform. The first step is, aptly, the First Step Act, a bill that boils down to getting inmates prepared for life after prison and then getting them released. Passed with broad bipartisan support in the House of Representatives, the bill would provide $250 million for a five-year program to fund inmate education, job training and rehabilitation. Inmates who participate and succeed would be credited time toward early release or be allowed to transition more quickly to alternatives like home confinement and halfway houses. And in five years, wed know a lot more about what works and be even better able to make progress. The second step, which has garnered support in the Senate, involves shortening unreasonably long mandatory minimum sentences, often life, for some felony drug offenders, letting judges impose lighter sentences for nonviolent crimes, and reducing overly harsh sentences already levied in cases that involved crack cocaine. Some Democrats say the plans dont go far enough, but that is myopic thinking on an issue in which any progress has been elusive. Some Republicans, including Attorney General Jeff Sessions, have said these initiatives are soft on crime. They are letting the political plank and puritanical impulses of being tough on crime blind them to the facts of what excessive incarceration is doing to this nation. The cost in dollars budgeted, lives wasted and families torn apart is staggering. Trump, by pushing for passage of a combined bill in both chambers, has the opportunity to bring home a victory that would be broadly cheered, and he needs to do so.Trump can win on federal prison reformNewsdayMost American prisoners are in state institutions, and the federal push is for ideas that are starting to work to reduce prison populations and recidivism at the state level.

Discussing all the pros and cons would entail a lengthy commentary, but there are some notable issues that can be addressed succinctly. One would be the meaning of conversion. Paul writes, All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, Romans 3:23. From the Christian perspective conversion occurs when one confesses their sin and turns in faith to Christ for forgiveness. Repentance and trust equal conversion, this is also called salvation and regeneration. It is an act of faith in response to the grace of God proclaimed in the Gospel, Ephesians 2:8-9. If this legislation is an attempt to compromise the proclamation of the Gospel it should be opposed, and there is the likelihood it will not pass constitutional muster if it hinders religious liberty. I have no experience with gay conversion therapy, but from what I have heard tortuous practices and brainwashing techniques have been employed to accomplish a so-called conversion from homosexuality to heterosexuality. You cannot torture someone into trusting Christ nor brainwash someone into believing; that is not how it works. Such practices should be outlawed and opposed; they are unbiblical and inhumane. The California legislature in considering passage of this bill found, Contemporary science [whatever that is] recognizes that being lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender is part of the natural spectrum of the human identity and is not a disease, disorder, or illness. I agree with the wording of the bill that says, being lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgenderis not a disease, disorder, or illness. Each of these deviations from Gods created purpose for sex is the natural expression of mans sin nature. If they were a disease, disorder, or illness they might have an excuse before God, but as Paul tells us they are without excuse. The hypocrisy in the bill is its one-way perspective of conversion. Sexual orientation change efforts means any practices that seek to change an individuals sexual orientation. This includes efforts to change behaviors or gender expressions, or to eliminate or reduce sexual or romantic attractions or feelings toward individuals of the same sex. So, attempting to change the sexual orientation of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transgen-Gay conversion therapy and AB 2943CHRISTIAN CONCEPTS Gary The hypocrisy in the bill is its one-way perspective of conversion.Have you noticed how every talk show host and the cover of every magazine promises THE ANSWER to every single problem we face? They pledge to solve our health problems, relationship problems, money problems, etc., with the results of the latest study, survey, or the newest information available. Now, I am not opposed to new information or studies. In fact, I think we are wise to stay in pursuit of knowledge and be lifelong learners. My angst comes from thinking that all the right answers have yet to be discovered; perhaps we just keep hoping someone will come up with an easier route to deal with our problems. Our pastor recently challenged us to read continuously through the book of Proverbs, reading chapter one on the first day of the month, chapter two on the second, and so on. Since there are thirty-one chapters, there is an assigned chapter for any months worth of days. At first glance, Proverbs might seem to be just a collection of quaint, old-fashioned sayings. However, upon study and consideration, deep spiritual insights appear that focus on the character and works of God and prove to be anything but outdated. A proverb is a short, concise sentence that expresses a moral truth not just intended to present knowledge (having the facts), but to impart wisdom (applying those facts to life). Further, the Hebrew word for proverb means to rule or govern. Hence, the truths presented in the Proverbs provide profound advice for us to live by. Written by King Solomon, called the wisest man who ever lived, the book begins with a purpose statement: The proverbs of Solomon, son of David, king of Israel: for attaining wisdom and discipline; for understanding words of insights; for acquiring a disciplined and prudent life, doing what is right and just and fair; for giving prudence to the simple, knowledge and discretion to the young. (Proverbs 1:1-4) A few things I noticed about this purpose statement: the priority is about Proverbs are meant to express moral truthHence, the truths presented in the Proverbs provide profound advice for us to live by.HEART MATTERS A bold requestAs we have read last week that James and John got their mother to intercede to Jesus on their behalf to ask him if he could command that these two sons of hers could sit next to him in his kingdom. These two men applied what Jesus has taught them in the sermon on the mount about asking, seeking and knocking until the Lord gives you an answer concerning your prayer request. Jesus responded to their prayer request by explaining to them that their request was not his to give but that his Father had prepared others for it. Jesus then ask the disciples a question, Are you able to drink the cup that I am about to drink? The brothers say yes to Jesus question. What cup was Jesus referring to? The cup in the Scripture often refers to ones divinely determined destiny. There are several cups in the Old Testament such as a cup of blessing, a cup of disaster, a cup of salvation, a cup of wrath or a cup of suffering. Jesus was about to drink the cup of suffering as he would satisfy Gods wrath for our sins on the cross. When the other disciples heard about James and Johns request they became indignant with them. Jesus explains the kingdom to his disciples so that they would all understand. His kingdom would not only involve suffering for righteousness sake but also influencing others through being a servant. Even today what Jesus said about those being control still holds true. People in control lord it over those who are not in control. Even though our government is set up as a Republic Democracy, most of those in control use their powers wrongly. We often see this in the business world. Jesus however paints a different picture from the unbelieving world. He teaches us to be servants. That is doing from the heart for others what is best. Each leader no matter how high they climb up on the structural ladder in the organization that they are employees in should still be will to do the most menial task in the company.

Despite what contemporary science may say there is not a scintilla of evidence that being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender is genetic or is irreversible. Its a choice, always has been and always will be. Herein lies the rub; nature being the discriminatory bigot it is has denied homosexual couples the ability to reproduce. The only hope the homosexual community has of insuring the next generation of homosexuals is to convert heterosexuals to their lifestyle and way of thinking. But thats okay, because that kind of conversion will be legal, in California. Where is the religious liberty task force when you need it? KINGContinued From 5Aattaining wisdom AND discipline. One without the other can prove dangerous. Wisdom without discipline will give way to temptation (Solomons accumulation of wives and concubines that led him away from the Lord is an obvious example) but discipline without wisdom can simply result in punishment or even abuse. Second, these verses dont argue basic spiritual and moral beliefs. They assume the reader desires to do what is right and just and fair, not split hairs or look for loopholes about how to define each one. In fact, agreeing with Gods Word is a prerequisite to comprehending Solomons proverbs. Finally, Solomon seeks to influence the young with his experience and words of wisdom. A young person who energetically seeks wisdom will have success, while those who mock and hate knowledge, calamity will overtake (Proverbs 1:2627). This holds true whether we are young in years or at heart, so no matter what our age, I challenge you to take a deeper look at the wisdom and insight of Solomons proverbs, because every heart matters!

FILEFlorida quarterback Feleipe Franks throws under pressure against Georgia on Oct. 28, 2017. By MARK LONGAssociated PressGAINESVILLE Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks insists he has nothing to prove. Coaches, teammates and close to 90,000 fans at Florida Field on Saturday probably would disagree. Franks was benched three times last season, went 3-5 as the starter and finished with more turnovers (11) than touchdown passes (9). The Gators (4-7) posted their second losing record in five years, and the offense ranked in triple digits nationally for the sixth time in the last seven seasons. Nothing to prove? It wasnt all Franks fault, but he was often criticized for lacking situational awareness and having poor pocket presence. Some even expected Franks to transfer after Florida hired coach Dan Mullen to replace Jim McElwain. Franks stuck around and was named the starter Monday after five months of competition against high school backup Kyle Trask and freshman Emory Jones, who has a ways to Florida quarterback was named teams starter on Monday.By JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE Fort Whites football game against Providence tonight was canceled Thursday due the death of one of Providences football players. The school said senior receiver Tommy Waters passed away tragically Thursday morning leaving the Providence community shaken by the news. The school shut down Thursday and today, canceling all athletics in the process which included a volleyball tournament this weekend. How Waters passed away was not made immediately known. They are very distraught. They are not giving out information, Fort White athletic director John Wilson said. The Region 1-3A game will likely not be rescheduled as the schools bye weeks dont match.

Florida Gateway College saw the tables turn when Edward Waters rattled off five unanswered points late to steal the win. Despite another close game in the third, the Lady Timberwolves never quite regained momentum as they fell in straight sets (25-13, 26-24, 25-23) Thursday night. It wasnt the ideal home opener for FGC a young team thats still trying to mesh with newcomers and its five returning players. I think a lot of it too is just when you bring such a huge group of new kids, its tough to gel early, FGC coach Richie Tang said.

Columbia and Fort White High School will have added security guards at their football games for the remainder of the season. Part of it stems from last Fridays shooting at Raines, where 19-year-old Joerod Jamel Adams was killed while two more students were wounded during the schools football game against Robert E. Lee. With everything thats going on at all the schools, they wanted to increase the security, Fort White athletic director John Wilson said. Columbia principal Trey Hosford and Fort White principal Keith Couey met with superintendent Lex Carswell, assistant superintendent Todd Widergren and Judy Tatum on Tuesday to discuss increasing law enforcement at games and the district FGC led late in second and third but were still swept at home.By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comOne of the oldest rivalries in Florida is renewed tonight.

We just cant look over them, defensive tackle Gilshard Newkirk said. We got to play every game like its [against] IMG Academy. We beat the teams that were supposed to beat, and expose the teams that were supposed to. We come out and play our heart out every game. We dont look at anybody any different.

Some owners, coaches and team executives will be called to testify during the season.


DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are happily married, but have one serious problem. Our sleeping habits are incompatible. I am an extremely light sleeper; he is a horrendous snorer. He sees a snoring specialist and tried several medical treatments, none of which worked. The only solution is a minor surgical procedure. He doesnt want to have the surgery. He insists he sleeps fine, and says Im the one with the problem. I have tried earplugs, white noise machines, sleep medications and more, but I cannot get a decent sleep with the obnoxious snoring. He stays up much later than I do, and I enjoy sleeping in our master bedroom until he comes to bed. I usually get driven out of the room by the noise. We agree we dont want to sleep in separate rooms and lose the intimacy, but its the only option for me to sleep well. Neither of us wants to give up the master bedroom because its the only one with an attached bathroom. Am I wrong for asking him to have surgery so we can share a bed? And if he wont, who should get the master bedroom? -SLEEPLESS IN LOUISIANA DEAR SLEEPLESS: Lets be honest. By now your husband knows full well he doesnt sleep fine. The reason for his reluctance is fear of the surgery. It wasnt wrong of you to ask, and out of consideration for you and the intimacy in your marriage he shouldnt have refused. However, because he insists on coming into the master bedroom, which he knows wakes you, for the sake of your health, take the other bedroom. Understand, the intimacy bed does not always have to be the sleeping bed. Good sleep quality is necessary for us to function properly. DEAR ABBY: I have five grown children and three grandchildren. They have always come first, especially my grandchildren. When I began the relationship with my husband, I told him how important both were to me and that, no matter what, my grandchildren always came first. He agreed and said he felt the same way. Now, two years into our marriage, my daughter and grandchildren want to come live with us for nine months while her husband is deployed. My husband is freaking out and keeps complaining every day even though they arent even here yet. He has pushed me to my breaking point, and I am not sure what to do. I would never tell him that or act that way toward his children or grandchildren. Im now considering divorce. What should I do? -FAMILY FIRST IN THE SOUTH DEAR FAMILY FIRST: I cant help but wonder how you would REALLY feel if the shoe was on the other foot. Would you be as accommodating as you expect him to be, or would you be panicking, too? Remind your husband that this is what he agreed to before your marriage, and point out that this isnt forever. It will be for only nine months. Tell him it will be an opportunity for him to get to know the grandkids and vice versa. Who knows? He might even enjoy it. If hes still unhappy after a reasonable period of time after they arrive, then it may be time to discuss separating. But dont jump the gun.DEAR ABBY: For the past 2 1/2 years, my deceased fathers friend and accountant has been working on winding up his estate. The bulk of the estate has been disbursed, and it should be clearing sometime soon. He has refused to take any compensation from the estate for executors fees. I have told him by email and in person that Dad would want him to be paid for his work, but he refuses to take any payment and insists he wants this to be the last thing he does for my father. I feel a thank-you gift would be appropriate, but Im stumped about what to get him. Although I saw him and his family several times in my childhood, I havent seen him in decades, so I have no idea what hobbies or restaurants he enjoys. Im guessing his age to be in his late 80s to early 90s, and his wife is still alive. Im pretty sure people in that age group dont need any more stuff for their house, and I know theyre financially comfortable. I have thought about flowers or a gift basket, but the small amount they cost would pale against what he would have been entitled to had he taken his executors fee. Do you have any suggestions on how I can express my thanks for everything hes done? -THANK YOU, IN CANADA DEAR THANK YOU: Because he is refusing monetary compensation, I suggest you write him a letter. In it, express how much you appreciate the hard work he has done and the kindness he has shown to your family. Tell him you know what a good friend he was to your father and how much your dad trusted and respected him. Then say thank you, and if he and his wife live close enough, offer to take them to dinner and thank him again in person. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Make changes for the right reason. Upsetting someone unnecessarily wont end up working in your favor. Kindness, affection and understanding will encourage conversations that can help mend any fallout you have with a loved one. Do your best to make partnerships work. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Do more and say less. Your actions will make a difference, but complaining wont. Situations that have the potential to get blown out of proportion should be avoided. Focus on whats doable, and you will bring about positive change. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It is best for you to work quietly behind the scenes to avoid interference. Someone who doesnt want to see you excel will meddle in your affairs if you are too open and trusting. Work hard and keep your thoughts to yourself. CANCER (June 21-July 22): What you do for others will be appreciated.

He says he even spent a majority of last Fridays game against Gainesville talking to assistant principal Doug Peeler about ways the school could do that. The shooting at Raines took it to a whole new level. We want people to come to the game and feel like they can be safe, Hosford said. I want my kids to be able to come to the game and not have to worry. Columbia will also have security in the parking lot just to have a law enforcement presence. The school is also adding additional lighting for the rest of the season and plans to leave lights on all around the premises, including the baseball and softball fields. Were trying to eliminate what we believe could present problems, Columbia athletic director Steve Faulkner said. We havent had any major problems, thank God, to this point but you never know with every going on, especially in the Jacksonville area. Fans will also not be allowed to roam Columbias track during games as they did last Friday. Were asking if youre coming to the game youre coming to find a seat and watch the game, Hosford said. As a parent, if youre bringing your kids to the game, theyre not there to play football in the end zone. Theyre there to watch the game and support the team. We dont want kids just running around unsupervised all night. Weve talked to the deputies and the different stations theyre going to have. Were not going to allow people just to stand on the track. Theyre going to need to come in and find a seat in the stands. The Jacksonville area has considered moving some games to the daytime all week. Duval County has already moved the Raines-First Coast and LeeWestside games this week SAFETY Continued From 1B ing for its 11th straight victory in the teams 84th meeting tonight. Even with the rivalry being a little bit diluted over the years, its still a rivalry that dates back, Columbia coach Brian Allen said. You dont want to be the staff or the class to be the first to lose to Suwannee in so many years. Were going to go out and do what we do as far as compete and execute We want to continue to go out and get better, week in and week out, no matter who the opponent is. You never want to overlook anybody. The Tigers have reason to be excited, fresh off last weeks rout over another rival in the Hurricanes. Columbias 44-21 win was enough to push itsself to No. 2 in Class 7A (behind St. Thomas Aquinas) in the AP state football poll. And heres another chance for the squad to prove its one of the best programs around. I see it as any other game, running back Kylen Callum said about Suwannee. We got to be excited for every one of them we play. We got to keep that intensity up. Columbia looks to keep the momentum rolling against a Suwannee team thats coming off an impressive season-opening 35-19 win over Fort White. Suwannee quarterback Tyree Taylor starred last week, accounting for more than half of his teams total yardage. Columbias defense is primed to slow down Taylor and star running back CJ Hall, something thatll be necessary to extend the long winning streak. Columbias high-octane offense, led by quarterback Jordan Smith, is coming off a productive outing last week. After torching the Gainesville defense for over 400 yards, the Tigers may produce even bigger numbers versus the Bulldogs at home. You never want to overlook, Allen said. [Our players] dont know how intense that rivalry has been over the fifty-plus years, but I do. We try to make them understand that and get up for the game, fight across the county line and its bragging rights for another year. We want to make sure that we have a really good game. For Columbia, its another opportunity to improve another evaluation as the Tigers try to get a little bit better each week. The state playoffs are months away but that hasnt stopped Columbia from polishing its skills with a sense of urgency. We playing every game like were trying to get to state, Newkirk said.Cook runs for 2 TDs, Jaguars beat BucsBy FRED GOODALLAssociated PressTAMPA Fourthstringer Tim Cook ran for a pair of second-half touchdowns, and Carroll Phillips returned a fumble for another TD to help the Jacksonville Jaguars close the NFL preseason with a 25-10 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Cook scored on runs of 1 and 3 yards, while Phillips picked up a fumble by rookie quarterback Austin Allen and ran it back 28 yards during a 19-point third quarter that turned a 10-3 halftime deficit into a 12-point lead. Regulars for both teams sat out the finale Thursday night in mostly empty Raymond James Stadium. A total of 34 players did not dress for the Jaguars, including every starter on offense and defense. Tampa Bays starters had the night off, too, as did suspended quarterback Jameis Winston, who must sit out the first three games of the regular season for violating the leagues personal conduct policy. Winston had a sharp preseason, completing 73 percent of his passes for 388 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. He will be eligible to return to practice and play in Week 4, when Tampa Bay travels to Chicago. Ryan Fitzpatrick will fill in as the starter, with Ryan Griffin backing up the 14th-year pro, one of just four players in NFL history whove thrown TD passes for seven franchises. The Jaguars, meanwhile, will head into their season opener against the New York Giants with heightened expectations after going 10-6, winning the AFC South and coming within one victory of reaching the Super Bowl last winter. With starter Blake Bortles sitting Thursday night, Cody Kessler and rookie Tanner Lee split playing time at quarterback for Jacksonville.

Mullens decision was hardly a surprise, but some of Franks responses to getting the job raised eyebrows. Just ready to get back out there and, not prove myself, but just kind of go back out there and build confidence back up for the team, Franks said. Im not trying to prove anything to anybody. I dont have anything to prove to anybody. Franks ended last season by throwing three interceptions and getting sacked five times in a loss to rival Florida State. He also fumbled early and watched helplessly as the Seminoles returned it for a touchdown. That was a rough one, he said. Franks has waited more than nine months to get back on the field. He should get a confidence boost in the opener. The Gators host Charleston Southern of the Football Championship Subdivision. The Bucs are 0-19 against teams from the Football Bowl Subdivision, including a 49-0 loss against Mullen and Mississippi State to begin 2017. Charleston Southern also was overmatched during its lone visit to Gainesville in 2009, a 62-3 setback in the opener. The Gators havent been the same offensively since that one-loss season, which was Tim Tebows senior year. Quarterback play has been shaky, at best, with 12 different starters and none of them throwing more than 12 touchdowns in any season. Franks hopes to end the trend, and hell have arguably the most talent of any of the others around him. Florida is loaded at running back, with Jordan Scarlett, Lamical Perine and Malik Davis leading the way, and has two intriguing additions to the receiving corps with Van Jefferson (Mississippi) and Trevon Grimes (Ohio State). But the offensive line remains the biggest question mark despite having four experienced starters back. Weve got to take care of our business up front, co-offensive coordinator John Hevesy said.

Asherah Collins led five kills the Lady Tigers (2-4, 1-2) offensively with five kills and two blocks. Erica Faulkner also had four kills and three blocks. JC Styles defended with five digs and Danielle Thomson had eight assists. Weve got to work on our offense, Columbia coach Trudy Andrews said. Weve got to be able to pass, serve-receive and get the ball up and protect it and be able to run our offense because every single time were successful getting that ball up off serve-receive we score. Weve just got to turn that around and itll be a different ball game. Andrews did say that some of the girls were also battling the flu against the Hurricanes (3-2, 2-0) We had girls sick and battling through that, Andews said. Gainesville is a very quick pace and we started out real well and jumped on them and then we didnt keep applying pressure. We gave up some passes in serve-receive and those are things weve got to work on. Its been tough having a lot of away matches here in a row so itll be nice to come back home on Tuesday and settle in and start the week off fresh. Asherah had five kills, 2 blocks. Erica had 4 kills, 3 blocks. JC five digs. Danielle had 8 assists and 4 digs.FWHS VOLLEYBALL LOSES AT KEYSTONEFort White managed to take a set but couldnt come away with a victory against Keystone Heights, losing 3-1 (25-10, 23-25, 25-20, 25-16) on the road in District 4-5A action.

Columbias boys beat Baldwin 773-363 and the girls won 375-256.PREP ROUNDUPColumbia volleyball loses to Gainesville their job and we had some who really struggled. Either we need to work harder in practice to make sure the outcome is what we want or maybe we arent ready this year. But were sure as heck going to try to put the best lineup we have out there every game. The Lady Timberwolves (1-3) stepped up their defense in the final two sets against the Lady Tigers (2-4), netting 10 total blocks, but it wasnt consistent enough. After winning both meetings last season, FGC was poised to earn another victory over Edward Waters but a rough start defensively hurt the home teams chances. Edward Waters is a lot better team than we played last year, Tang said. We had opportunities. [Midway through the first set] we essentially gave them all their points. They didnt earn a point, we gave them everything. Its frustrating way to play volleyball when we start doing things like that. FGC bounced back after a lackluster first set. The Lady Timberwolves held a steady but slim lead for most of the second set. FGC freshman Nataleigh Nieuwenhuiss ace late pushed her team to a 22-18 lead. Momentum began turning back to the Lady Tigers, though, when FGCs offense sputtered in the sets most critical moments. We had the run, we just got in our heads, right side hitter Madison Morrison said after the game. We didnt play our game. We played their game. Our pace is a lot   faster than theirs, we just dumbed it down to their level. It was mor e of the same in the final set as FGC gained an early advantage before surrendering the lead to Edward Waters midway through. The Lady Timberwolves remained competitive until the end, trimming the deficit to two, but a couple kills late by Tyra Mitchell helped the Lady Tigers seal the win. FGCs Ameah Gerideau and Morrison combined for 13 kills in the loss Thursday. We have a really good offense but we got to be able to get them the ball, Tang added. If we cant get them the ball, then thats a big problem. FGC looks to bounce back at home against Andrew College on Sept. 6. I think all-around we can get better, designated setter Antonette Ochipa said. Its a hard loss, but were definitely going to do better moving forward.
