He said the attack occurred on July 30 around 9:30 p.m. Initial calls were made to the Macon County Sheriffs Office but the case was turned over to GBI, Sergeant Lawrence Beard said. Georgia residents Shaleigh Howell, 18, and Antrevis Collins, 19, were booked into Macon Jail Aug. 3 on armed robbery and aggravated assault charges, each with a $50,000 bond, a jail official said. Howell had been released on bond as of Thursday, while Collins remained incarcerated. Howard said both Howell and Collins were arrested in connection to the incident due to their proximity to the park where the robbery and assault occurred. The victims bank cards and cell phone were taken and Howard confirmed that after the suspects used the cards nearby they were able to track the pair down and tie them to the scene. Whitewater Creek Park is located in Oglethorpe, Georgia and sits on nearly 500 acres, its website states. LUREDContinued From 1A On Wednesday, the teacher was placed on paid suspension pending a conclusion to the investigation. Carswell declined to go into detail about the nature and scope of the messages. School officials dont believe the alleged conduct rose to a criminal level, he said Thursday. Were concerned that the communication might not have been appropriate, but it was never anything illegal, Carswell said. TEXTINGContinued From 1Afigure out why the county has been paying thousands more per month than usual to the Jacksonville Medical Examiners Office. Ive got a lot more work still to do, Foreman said. I havent found the smoking gun or anything. Medical examiner fees are typically about $20,000 per month, said County Manager Ben Scott. But in recent months, the expenses have consistently hovered near or above $30,000, Foreman to investigate where the referrals are coming from. Autopsies run around $3,000 each, and the county is obligated to pay up if a doctor wont sign off on a death certificate. The records Foreman obtained from the Jacksonville Medical Examiners Office on Wednesday show 104 referrals since January, with 51 resulting in an autopsy. The next step is figuring out which referrals warrant a more detailed look and requesting the specific case files. Every referral that resulted in an autopsy came from a law enforcement agency. Autopsy fees are just one piece of the picture, Scott said. Theres also transportation expenses and other medical examiner fees, including a $175 charge just to call a body in. Some referrals that didnt result in an autopsy came from law enforcement, while others were from doctors at local medical facilities. Of the 104 total referrals, seven were for suicides, 30 were for non-vehicle accidents, eight were for vehicle accidents and two were for homicides. The rest of the deaths were from natural or undetermined causes, or for non-medical examiner cases. Some information is still unclear, Foreman said, such as what results in a referral being declared a non-medical examiner case or what an inspection entails compared to an autopsy. Little things Ive got to find out the answer to, he said. On Thursday, Scott said he was preparing to analyze the data himself. Weve got the bills and weve paid the bills, Scott said. We just havent seen what the breakdown is and where theyre coming from. Columbia County Sheriffs Office spokesperson Murray Smith said the majority of law enforcement referrals to a medical examiner are not for criminal cases. They are typically for someone who died at home and whose doctor wont sign off on the death, Smith said. We have a responsibility to go out and conduct an investigation, he said. Nearly all of those deaths are later linked to natural causes. Still, investigators have to perform their due diligence, Smith said. Its just a matter that we have to go document it, he said. Several years ago, the state legislature took from local sheriffs the power to waive autopsies, Columbia County Sheriff Mark Hunter told county commissioners during an Aug. 16 meeting. The county has reallocated $100,000 to cover autopsy fees over the budget for this fiscal year. The excess money was needed to fill the gap for July, August and September, Scott previously said. During the Aug. 16 meeting, Foreman told commissioners it was worth looking into whether a private entity was exploiting a legislative loophole. Theres something atypical going on, he told the board. ... If its going to be a pattern, it is going to severely impact your budget. The county believes the influx stems from people who died in a medical facility but were referred for an autopsy for reasons not yet clear, Scott said previously. These are scenarios where someone goes to a medical facility with a terminal illness, he said during the Aug. 16 meeting. Theyre going there to die, thats everyone knows theyre gonna die there, thats what theyre there for. AUTOPSIESContinued From 1A Helfenberger said the budget is a little under $57 million and that includes all sources. The millage rate will remain the same for this years budget, he said. Helfenberger said 29 percent of the budgets revenue comes from ad valorem property tax revenue. In an earlier presentation about the budget he said about 40 percent of the budget is raised through non-property tax revenue, 13 percent comes from grants, and 12 percent of the budget is generated through franchise fees and permits. The budget is approximately the same as last years budget, as far as the burden to the taxpayers, he said. We have more expenses that came up at the last minute like a couple of weeks right before we got into the meat of the budget workshops, such as the city hall rehabilitation and repairs that were looking at budgeting a $1 million for and we hope its less. Were also exploring other revenue sources to be able to try to cover the costs. CITYContinued From 1A By STEVE WILSONswilson@lakecityreporter.comIn what can best be called a cross country scam, falsely implicating a popular country musician, a Nevada woman is facing charges for allegedly defrauding a Live Oak based business having nearly got away with it. Erin E. Kelley, 38, with a listed address on W. Sixth Street in Reno, Nevada, is currently being held on $10,000 bond in the Suwannee County Jail, facing one felony charge each of fraud-impersonation and grand theft. According to a report filed by Suwannee County Sheriffs Office Investigator Deputy David Kelly, Live Oak based Tri-County Irrigation received emails apparently coming from Major Turbine Pump and Supply, a company with which they regularly do business. The emails claimed that TriCounty Irrigation had an outstanding balance with MTPS of $1,650 and advised them to make payment to a Wells Fargo Bank account. The email provided an account number, a routing number, and the name Erin Kelly. The alleged fraud took place in February. Tri-County soon realized the emails were fraudulent and attempted to stop payment, but was unsuccessful, as funds had already been transferred. Investigator Kelly obtained information from Wells Fargo regarding the account and found evidence of other money transfers which appeared to be fraudulent, as well as contact information for Ms. Kelley in Nevada. He contacted Kelley, who claimed that country singer Jon Pardi was a high school classmate and was sending her gifts and money. In early May, investigator Kelly made contact with Sgt. Trenton Johnson of the Reno Police Department, and was informed that Johnson did make contact with Kelley to confirm her identity and initial statements. He also learned that Erin was sending money and items to Nigeria and Florida for Jon, Kelly said in the report. Kelley was arrested in Nevada, extradited and booked into the Suwannee County Jail on Thursday. Suwannee County Sheriff Sam St. John commended Investigator Kelly for a job well done. Normally, these investigations turn up a dead end, St. John said. Fortunately we were able to track down the individual who did it. Kelley Fraudulent invoice sought $1,650 from local company.
SUNDA Y, SEPTEMBER 2, 2018 LOCAL LAKE CITY REPORTER 3A rf SENIOR, TEACHER & SERVICEDAY SENIOR, TEACHER & SERVICEDAY rfnftffrb fnn nnntb bn County tax hike hangs in the balanceBy CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comTaxpayers were left with a cliffhanger when they overwhelmingly shot down Columbia Countys proposed one-cent sales tax at the ballot box, and theyll have to watch this Thursdays episode to find out how the story ends will commissioners follow through with raising property taxes to make up for the revenue difference, as the board has previously vowed, or will they back down? Even the boards chairman doesnt know yet, he said in the aftermath of the failed sales tax referendum earlier in the week. The tax would have generated $7.7 million annually for infrastructure projects and free up money from other sources for construction of a new jail, according to the county. Plan B will be hashed out Thursday, when County Manager Ben Scott will present different versions of the budget for the coming fiscal year, said County Commission Chairman Tim Murphy. One option would increase the property tax millage rate from 8.015 to 8.087. After presenting that version at a past meeting, Scott was asked to prepare an alternative budget with spending cuts and no property tax increase. Murphy said he wouldnt take a stance until the board discusses both options publicly. Youll get my answer when you get to the meeting, Murphy said. The county still lacks a dedicated revenue stream for road projects, and the new jail which estimates put at more than $30 million is still a looming expense. The truth is that it all hinges on Bens proposal on the 6th, Murphy said. Murphy expects the option with lower property taxes will reverse certain spending increases Scott proposed in the other budget. If you were increasing it and you didnt put it in there, thats a cut, he said. Commissioner Bucky Nash is the one who requested the more fiscally conservative option. He said the plan will have outright reductions to existing spending on top of reversals to proposed hikes. Were going to try to finance the jail through cuts and reallocation and see what we need to do with the millage, he said. Leave it the same or make an adjustment. Nash said he isnt leaning toward either option yet. Ive got to look at what the cuts are and how much that generates before I deal with the up or down on the millage rate, he said. Commissioner Everett Phillips said he hasnt made up his mind on whether the version of the budget with lower property taxes is realistic. Not really thought about it just yet, Phillips said. But Ill have it Thursday night. Commissioners Ron Williams and Rusty DePratter could not be reached for comment. Spending cuts can probably carry the county through another budget cycle, Nash said, but he doesnt believe they are a longterm solution to cover all the debts for the jail project. I dont think its sustainable, he said. I think you could maybe do it for one year. The new budget year starts Oct. 1. Before figuring out a long-term financial strategy, the board needs to wait on its two new members, Toby Witt and Rocky Ford, to be sworn in after the November general election, Murphy said. Ford is replacing District 2 Commissioner Rusty DePratter, while Witt is replacing District 4 Commissioner Everett Philips. I think its only right to get them involved in this discussion, Murphy said. Murphy said its the current boards fault that more than twothirds of voters opposed the sales tax. A sunset clause wasnt written into the referendum, he said, nor was a promise that property taxes would go down if it passed. We just messed it up, Murphy said. Murphy said those mistakes would not be repeated if the sales tax ever gets put back on the ballot during his tenure. Itll be clear as ice, he said. Murphy wouldnt indicate if he planned to raise the issue again next election cycle. It may or may not be necessary depending on how the economy grows, he said. Thats too far down the water, he said. Will commissioners follow through with threat to raise rate?

Theo (Big Daddy) Kirby served our county for 28 straight years as property assessor. He was affectionately called Big Daddy because he was, well, Big. And he always had a distinctly paternal way about him. Theo seemingly never got ruffled. No mattered how hot-tempered an angry taxpayer might get, he always took the position, Let us sit down and reason together. Still, Theo was a man of his convictions and not afraid to make controversial changes that raised the ire of some in the community. For example, he raised the value of timberland to the price of farmland. The timber men sued and the suit took three years to settle in Theos favor. Then he ordered a reappraisal of the entire county, which turned into a hot issue. But Theo again stuck to his guns because he said he felt his job was to make things better for Columbia County and the reappraisal stood. You might have thought these controversies would get Theo voted out of office, but, no, he was still serving 28 years later. And still the same Theo. When Theo died at the age of 66 in 1984, he was one of the most honored men in our county and also in the Florida Property Appraiser Association. Theo J. Kirby, a Big Daddy just when we needed him.

This mission will be accomplished through the teamwork of professionals dedicated to truth, integrity and hard work. Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINION Our very own Big Daddy Dont raise property taxesThe whole county will be watching come Thursday, when commissioners convene to set property tax rates for the coming fiscal year. Folks here want to know whether these five men plan to make good on their threat to raise ad valorem taxes, now that the 1-cent sales tax hike proposal has been soundly rebuffed by voters. If they do raise property taxes, they can kiss their political careers goodbye. Residents wont stand for it. Two new commissioners, Rocky Ford and Toby Witt, were just elected on a no-new-taxes platform, and for good reason. Witt was the first to expose the false choice offered by county officials take the sales tax hike or accept higher ad valorem rates to pay for the new jail for what it is: a smokescreen. Witt says that with property values rising and the local construction industry in high gear, we can pay for the new jail without further burdening taxpayers. Even if it turns out new revenues wont quite cover the debt service on the jail, raising taxes should be the last thing on commissioners minds. What do you do when you cant pay your bills? You cut spending. County officials should leave the property tax rate where it was last year or roll it back. Government must learn to live within its means. Commissioner Bucky Nash sent the county manager back to the drawing board recently with orders to explore that option. Commission Chairman Tim Murphy, someone wed always considered a fiscal conservative, has something else in mind: reject proposed budget increases and claim that as a cut. Murphys reasoning doesnt work, but all we care is that commissioners find a way to pay the bills without further burdening local taxpayers. We know they can. The county is taking plenty of money from taxpayers pockets as it is. Well learn Thursday whether they have the will to do the right thing. The board meets at 5:30 p.m. at the School Board Administrative Complex, 372 West Duval Street.

Eric GreenwaldEric Greenwald was born on March 28, 1962 in Nashville, TN. On August 29, 2018, he suffered a motor vehicle accident, and after a life of struggles, surprises, twists, turns, triumphs and ultimate victory, he went to be with his Lord, savior and friend, Jesus. Upon graduating Tullahoma High School in 1980, he answered a patriotic call, and served his country in the Navy. He sailed aboard the USS Dale from 1980 to 1984, where he cared for his fellow crewmen as a mess specialist. Later, he served the civilian world as a cook for Wagons West in Miami. Sometime after arriving in North Central Florida, he put his tinkering skills to good use as a mechanic for Leonards frame shop in Lake City. Most recently, he served his community as a pool technician with Kens Pool Service. Eric possessed a burning passion for Jesus that drove him to share about his Lord, so that others can know the love and power of Jesus in the same way that he now does. He served in youth ministry, mens ministry, Promise Keepers, and Tres Dias of Birmingham, Alabama (BTD #36). He was a blessing to his Christian brothers and sisters at Fellowship Church in High Springs. Family brought him some of his greatest joys, and he loved spending time with his wife, Shelley, a woman he considered to be Gods gift to him. He also treasured time with his boys, and loved sharing with them his enjoyment of cool cars, hunting, shooting guns, and fishing. He couldnt miss a weekly trip to Dairy Queen to savor some ice cream with his granddaughter, Addy. A history of Erics joys isnt complete without mentioning his love of both the Tennessee Vols and the Tennessee Titans. He was preceded in death by his parents, David and Eva Greenwald, and his sister, Pamela Greenwald. He is survived by his wife, Michel (Shelley), his sons, Luke Adam of North Miami Beach, Eric Robert (and Tricia) of Lake City, Logan Lee of Lake City, Dale Duke of Lake City, Kyle Chaz of Lake City, along with his grandchildren, Zachary Spaulding, Addylynn Grace Greenwald, and Aiden Michael Greenwald. He is also survived by his Tennessee family of Uncle Harold and Aunt Jennie Bush of Tullahoma, his cousins, Thomas and Penny Bush of Tullahoma, and his lifelong best friends, Mike Brackman and William Cubby Jones. He will be missed by several youth who considered him a role model and close friend. His faithful hunting dog, Honey Gun Greenwald mourns his absence. A celebration of life, officiated by Pastor Skipper Hair, will be held Thursday, September 6th at 5:00pm at Fellowship Church of High Springs. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Fellowship Churchs Youth Group.

AUDREY E. SIKES, MMC City Clerk OBITUARIES
By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comWatching her son in the grips of post-traumatic stress disorder and seeing his dramatic recovery at the aid of a four legged friend, a Lake City woman used her experience with dogs to help local veterans. Julie Mandy is president, and founder of Double Six Service Dogs. October will mark its second year in the area. She said Double Six works with first responders as well as veterans with a gamut of both mental and physical wounds sustained during their times of duty. We dont care whether its PTSD, missing limbs, whatever it is we will try to help them to the best of our ability, said Mandy. She explained that in soldier speak got your six means I have your back. The name is a play on the military reference with two sixes referring to the dog helping the handler and the handler helping the dog. Mandy said her Double Six canines are pound puppies, discovered in local animal shelters through a unique pairing process with the aid of her trusted talent scout and yellow lab mix. My right hand dog Kare Bear, she helps me with that, Mandy said. Once a dog with the right energy level is found, Mandy said they then introduce the veteran or first responder to conduct a human-canine compatibility test. I need a lower energy dog because a high energy dog is more for search and rescue, where with what we do you want a little bit lower energy, she said. I want to bring the veteran back so that we can see if theres a bond between veteran and the dog. I will not just adopt the dog. I wait to make sure that there is a bond between man and dog. She said in its brief time operating in Lake City theyve had several success stories, and heard several more of trained dogs saving those with life threatening medical conditions. She listed a few examples like Tom, a local American Legion member who suffers from PTSD, and found Buddy. Another man she said with both heart and balance problems, John, found Harley. Another local veteran, George, was paired with Bandit. However, the success story she was most passionate about involved Robert Overmeyer, her son, and Diamond. He came home from Afghanistan with PTSD and he was doing a downward spiral, Mandy said. Diamond pulled him out of it. He became a long haul trucker. He has his own service dog (Selene) on the truck now. She said when he needed someone to talk to she couldnt listen. I would cry, Mandy said. I found out how much the dogs would really listen to him and not pass judgment and not get upset about the situation. He watched his friends blow up in front of him with an IED. He still struggles with it today. Now, when Robert finds himself in particularly hectic traffic, as in New York, Selene is in the cabin to give him a nudge at just the right time. That was the whole reason I started Double Six was because of him, Mandy said. She said her experience with canine behavior spans nearly three decades working in veterinary settings, but she started out with basic obedience training. Mandy said she is an American Kennel Club evaluator and trainer, and that her Double Six dogs undergo numerous AKC approved sessions. My requirements to become a service dog is they have to put 150 hours out and about ... in training to make sure that I am putting the best dogs out there, that we dont have a dog thats going to lunge at another dog or have some of the problems that theyve been having with some of the other dogs, Mandy said. She said Double Six is branching out across state lines with a chapter soon to open roughly five hours away near Auburn, Alabama and with the assistance of Auburn University. Double Six Service Dogs can be found online and on social media.

The fact that Columbia coaches couldnt even find the old Oaken Bucket trophy after Fridays 49-7 win over Suwannee should tell you everything. This rivalry is dying, if it even still exists, and theres no longer an excitement in the building when the teams meet year in and year out. The Tigers have now defeated the Bulldogs in 11 straight years and the games havent been remotely close. The closest contest in the last 11 seasons came in 2011 and Columbia still won that year by 21 points. During the 11-year stretch theres been four shutouts. Suwannee has also been held to only seven points four times and just a field goal another, never scoring more than 14 points. Columbia athletic director Steve Faulkner eventually found the trophy Friday night but it didnt even matter anymore. By that point, every Columbia player had scattered off to either their friends, family or the locker room. The only person left posing for a picture with the trophy was Columbia coach Brian Allen. It was a fitting image, considering many of his player dont even consider the game a rivalry anymore, a rivalry Allen remembers dearly from his time as a Tiger in the 90s. My kids dont even realize its a rivalry. I dont even think my first group did in 2012, Allen said. Lets put an end to this dying rivalry Shooting the JJordan Kroeger CHS steamrolls Suwannee in 11th straight win in Oaken Bucket series.By ERIC JACKSONejacksno@lakecityreporter.comColumbias loaded offense was uncontainable, but the defense was devastating. It was a disruptive unit all night, and helped the Tigers hold on to old Oaken Bucket. The Tigers pounced on the Bulldogs, forcing four fumbles and two interceptions in an impressive performance Friday night. The combination of its menacing defense and attacking offense pushed Columbia to a 49-7 win over hated rival Suwannee. Its certainly a confidence-booster for the defensive unit, which seemed outshined by the star-studded offense during last weeks season opener win over Gainesville. Im really proud of them, Columbia head coach Brian Allen said of the defense that tallied five sacks. At the end of the day, we know that we have guys on both sides of the ball that are more than capable of getting it done every Friday night Im extremely proud of the effort. They competed and forced turnovers. It didnt take long for Columbia (2-0) to do just that in its eleventh-straight victory over Suwannee (1-1). The Bulldogs second drive was interrupted when defensive end LeVontae Camiel forced a safety, resulting in a two-possession lead early on. Coach [Felix] Woods and coach Bruce [Johnson], they preached turnovers, turnovers, turnovers, linebacker Jaylen Brown said. Get the ball out. They wanted everyone running to the ball. Eleven hats to the ball. So we pretty much practiced that all week. While Columbias defense wrecked havoc, the offense was as good as advertised. Star quarterback Jordan Smith recorded 238 passing yards and four touchdowns before half time. His 2020 classmate running back Kylen Callum finished the night with 133 total yards and two touchdowns. Columbia wide receivers Marquez Bell, Bobby Fulton and Jaden Butter Williams each reeled in a touchdown Friday night.

Raiders send star Mack to Bears in blockbuster tradeMORE INSIDE:Friday night notebookSTEAMROLL continued on 6B RIVALRY continued on 6BBy ANDREW SELIGMANAssociated PressThe Chicago Bears spent the offseason loading up to end a string of losing seasons. They just made their biggest move. The Bears have acquired star pass rusher Khalil Mack from the Raiders in a massive trade that sends two first-round draft picks to Oakland. Mack held out for the entire offseason and preseason, seeking a new, long-term contract rather than play under the final year of his rookie deal that would have earned him $13.8 million. Raiders coach Jon Gruden, in his biggest move since returning to the sideline from the broadcast booth, accommodated the 27-year-old Mack on Saturday. Oakland will get firstround selections in 2019 and 2020, a sixth-rounder next year and a third-rounder in 2020. Oakland also included its second-round selection in 2020 and a conditional fifth-rounder that year. Mack and the Bears agreed to a six-year, $141 MackTRADE continued on 2B Follow @LCR_Sports on Twitter for local stories, score updates and moreGators explode for 53 points in win over CSUBy MARK LONGAssociated PressGAINESVILLE Feleipe Franks threw five touchdowns passes in the first half and Florida got the Dan Mullen era off to rousing start with a 53-6 victory against overmatched Charleston Southern on Saturday night. Franks, who managed just nine touchdowns passes in 11 games as a freshman in 2017, had five in less than 30 minutes of work against the lower-division Buccaneers. Franks showed poise in the pocket and precision with every pass, attributes that eluded him under former coach Jim McElwain Maybe Franks is benefiting from Mullen, a deft play-caller who helped Alex Smith, Tim Tebow and Dak Prescott become college stars. Maybe Franks is thriving in a simplified offense and surrounded by more talent. Maybe Franks is a one-week wonder whose progress will be better measured next week against a Southeastern Conference team. Whatever the case, Franks had to enjoy the best game by far of his college career. Mullen sure did. The former Mississippi State coach was all smiles in his debut with the Gators Mullen, who was Floridas offensive coordinator during some of the most successful years (2005-08) in school history, returned to Gainesville with hopes of leading the school back to national prominence. Mullen opened against a team from the Football Championship Subdivision, and it showed. The Gators rolled up 354 GATORS continued on 2B B1

Waters, 18, was a senior who also played basketball. His death shook the school, leading to cancelation of classes on both Thursday and Friday. It also led to the cancelation of the schools game against Fort White on Friday night. Waters was reportedly well liked by teammates and classmates. Many Providence students showed up at school on Friday to honor his memory, such as painting in his parking space and leaving mementos. The football game likely wont be rescheduled. Fort White athletic direc tor John Wilson said the schools and FHSAA will sort out the aftermath early next week. If Fort White doesnt find a replace ment game, or Providence doesnt for feit the points, the state will just take an average points total from its nine games instead of the usual 10 when putting together the standings at the end of the season. Former CHS star cut by Broncos Undrafted rookie free agent safety Trey Marshall has been cut by the Denver Broncos. He should figure into the discussion for addition to the Broncos practice squad in 2018. The former Florida State standout had some injury concerns coming out of college, but was able to remain healthy all offseason and received extensive playing time in the final preseason game. The former Columbia star started seven games and appeared in nine this past season. Marshall finished his college career with 135 total tackles. The standout safety was a consensus four-star recruit out of Columbia in 2014. COURTESYFormer Tiger making strides Seminole State College runner Yassin Raffay took first place in his teams season opener cross country race at Holloway Park in Lakeland. Raffay recently graduated from Columbia and was a star runner for both the schools track and cross country teams. Raffay, who is pictured first on the left, will race again at this weeks invitational at the University of North Florida Friday night (6:30). million extension that guarantees $90 million. That makes him the highest paid defensive player in league history one day after Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald, the 2017 Defensive Player of the Year, signed a six-year, $135 million deal, with $87 million guaran teed. ESPN first reported the trade. The fifth overall selection in the 2014 draft, Mack is a two-time All-Pro and the 2016 NFL Defensive Player of the Year. Mack has played in every game for Oakland the past four seasons, with 231 primary tackles, 40 1/2 sacks, and nine forced fumbles. We are excited to add a special playmaker like Khalil to our football team, Bears general manager Ryan Pace said in a statement. He brings a ton on the field, but he really fits what we are building in our locker room, too. Elite defensive players in their prime are rare so when we knew we had a legit shot to acquire him, we did everything we thought necessary to get him. Since entering the league, Mack leads all players with 185 1/2 quarterback pressures and ranks second with 68 tackles for loss, according to SportRadar. He is one of the most versatile defenders in the NFL. Simply put, hes a game changer. The move sent shock waves around the league. Raiders quarterback Derek Carr tweeted No way and added: #RaiderNation we feel your pain trust me but we need you next Monday night! Oakland linebacker Bruce Irvin made his feelings clear with a profane post. He later wrote, What a shock. Now move on and win.. time to beat the Rams!! Mack had been a cornerstone in Oakland along with Carr ever since being drafted and helped the Raiders end a 13-year playoff drought in 2016. But he never formed a relationship with Gruden, who had said the opportunity to coach Mack was one of the reasons he was attracted to the job. Gruden had called Mack Oaklands best player but decided to go in a different direction rather than give another player a contract worth more than $20 million a year after Carr got a lucrative extension last summer. The Raiders invested heavily in the pass rush in the draft, taking tackles P.J. Hall and Maurice Hurst, and end Arden Key in hopes of teaming them with Mack and Irvin. The three rookies showed promise in the preseason, but they will never get the chance to play with Mack. TRADEContinued From 1B yards in the first half and scored on six of seven possessions. Franks connected for touchdowns with Ohio State transfer Trevon Grimes, Mississippi transfer Van Jefferson (twice), Josh Hammond and Tyrie Cleveland. The one to Cleveland was the highlight of the night, a 3-yard jump pass that elicited memories of Mullen and Tebow in the Swamp Little went wrong on either side of the ball for the Gators. THE TAKEAWAY Charleston Southern: Will get $450,000 for the game, a nice payday that helps fund the program. Nonetheless, the Bucs fell to 0-20 against FBS teams and have been outscored 129-6 the last two years against Indiana (27-0), Mississippi State (49-0) and Florida. Florida: Got a much-needed boost after finishing 4-7 last year, a season derailed by suspensions, injuries and McElwains unusual exit. The Gators will get a better gauge of where theyre at in league play. SUSPENDED GATORS Florida suspended seven players for the game including senior defensive end Cece Jefferson and dynamic receiver Kadarius Toney. The team said the seven were punished for not living up to the Gator standard. Jefferson sat out because of academic issues. Toney was involved in a May altercation on campus with a group of Gainesville locals. He was later pulled over and found with a loaded AR-15 in the backseat of his car. Defensive tackles Kyree Campbell and Luke Ancrum, cornerback Brian Edwards, running back Adarius Lemons and walkon offensive lineman James Washington also were suspended for the opener. BENCHED STARTERS Mullen benched three starters for a series to open the game. Left tackle Jawaan Taylor, defensive end Jachai Polite and linebacker Vosean Joseph missed several snaps for violating team rules. Stone Forsythe started in place of Taylor. Jeremiah Moon stepped in for Polite. And Kylan Johnson subbed for Joseph. Taylor, Polite and Joseph were on the field for their second series. EARLY EJECTION Edward Kings season opener lasted two plays. The Charleston Southern linebacker was ejected for targeting on the opening series. King speared Franks with the crown of his helmet. King was not flagged on the play, but he was ejected after the tackle was reviewed. King, a sophomore from Hollywood, Florida, slammed his helmet to the concrete as he exited the stadium through the visiting tunnel. UP NEXT Charleston Southern gets an early bye week before playing at the Citadel on Sept. 15. Florida begins Southeastern Conference play next week when it hosts Kentucky. The Gators have won 31 consecutive games in the series, including overcoming a 13-point deficit in the fourth quarter last year on the road. GATORSContinued From 1B B2
SUNDA Y, SEPTEMBER 2, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER 3B A cut above the restBy MONTY STEPHENSSpecial to the ReporterA knife is an essential tool for outdoorsmen and women. Its a must have item. Whether it will be used for field dressing game or fileting fish, or cutting rope to tie an item down in the back of the truck, there is just no substitute. But of course, the better the quality of the knife, the better it will do its job. At the top of the quality pyra mid for knives are custom knives. Custom knives are handmade with the finest materials. Two custom knife makers in our area are TLH Custom Knives in Jacksonville and Carl Colson, Custom Knives, Fanning Springs. Carl explained that a custom knife can be expected to last forever. The custom knives he builds combine the virtues of strength, balance, the ability to hold an edge and of course beauty. Carl added Some production knives might be stronger, but they dont take and hold an edge as well. He noted other knives sharpen very well but lose their edge quickly when used. A custom knife doesnt compromise on its primary purpose which is to cut things and of course, look good doing it. Carl Colson is a newcomer in the world of knife making. He is a carpenter by trade but has hunted and fished all of his life. So he has a deep appreciation for a good knife. The commercially produced knives he purchased through the years were considered to be of good quality. But he found they dulled quickly and because of their high stainless steel content were difficult to sharpen. He saw an article in Field and Stream magazine detailing how to make a knife from a saw blade. This intrigued him and he decided to give it a try. He was very pleased with the results of making his first knife and that hooked him on knife making. Over the next few years he learned more about metallurgy, tempering, and leather work. He invested in equipment and set a goal for himself of continuous improvement. Although his knives are considered to be top of the line, he still looks for ways to improve them. He builds about 60 knives per year and uses either 52100 ball bearing steel or Damascus billets. The steel he uses has a high carbon content and because of this will hold an edge very well. Carl says his knives can be expected to stay razorsharp through the dressing and skinning of three or more deer. But since the knives he builds come with a lifetime warranty, he will sharpen them free of charge, should they lose their edge. Timothy Harrell, TLH Custom Knives, estimates he has just about 20 years of experience in the field of knife making. He is a Marine Corp veteran and started making knives because as he described what I bought in the stores, didnt cut it (pun intended.) Tim noticed that the big name knives were strong but dulled quickly and were very difficult to sharpen. As he stated After all, when you reach for a knife, you expect it to be sharp. So to ensure he had a sharp knife, he started making his own. He uses 012 steel and forges his owns billets. Tim builds a wide variety of knives that include hunting knives, fillet knives, kitchen knives and cleavers. In addition to making any style and size of knife, Tim also restores knifes. His knives also carry a lifetime warranty and like Carl, he offers sharpening services for any of his knifes free of charge. Lead time for delivery of a TLH Custom knife is 2-3 months. His primary customers are sportsman. Cost of his knives usually fall below $200, which is a bargain for a custom knife. Custom knives are truly one-of-akind and destined to become family heirlooms. These knives are perfect for anniversary gifts, graduations, retirements and any special occasion. They are pricey, but like all products of high quality, they will function exactly as they should and stand the test of time. If you would like additional information, please contact Carl Colson at (352) 221-2937 or https://carlcolsonknives.com/. Timothy Harrell can be reached at (904) 945-0028 or https://www.facebook.com/ TLHCustomKnives/. TLH custom knife, designed by a customer for a Christmas gift to his son.

Chris Walters, Christian Service Center Executive Director, said the renovations began about three weeks ago and should be completed in the near future. The expansion work is taking place at the Christian Service Centers Lighthouse Gift Shop, which is next to its main facility. The Lighthouse Gift Shop has been active for about 10 years. We needed extra space in order to extend the gift shop and get a little extra storage, Walters said. Basically, anything that is sold out of the gift shop goes towards providing and buying food. So this expansion will help us be able to serve the community a little bit more through the gift shop and to be able to extend [the building] out to have more options and items in our store. The expansion and renovation work project will give the Lighthouse Gift Shop an estimated additional 720 square feet, encompassing two stories in the building. A lot of what is sold out of the gift shop are items that individuals donate to us, Walters said. Larger items, such as furniture thats donated, lots of times individuals will specifically ask that it be sold through the gift shop in order to purchase food for clients. The Christian Service Center is a faithbased organization that provides food and clothing, helps clients with financial aid for utility bills and other essential services and also helps the homeless with showers, food and clothing. We originally started to be here for the churches, so that when the churches were in need, they could come to us, Walters said. The Christian Service Center, which was established in 1982, serves Columbia County residents. Walters estimated that the agency serves 10,500 residents annually. In addition its estimated that Christian Service Center annually provides 2,500 total food boxes, serves 1,200 meals to the homeless and provides 35,000 pieces of clothing. Walters, who was formerly the agencys director of operations, has been at the Christian Service Center for about four years and he said this is the first renovation he can remember the agencys facility getting during that time period. The renovation will allow more room and more space for our gift shop to function at a higher rate so that it will provide to where we can buy more food and in turn, we can provide more for the community, he said.

2C LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2018Should you use savings to pay off credit cards?Dear Dave, How do you feel about taking money out of savings to pay off credit cards? Peggy Dear Peggy, Im okay with this under two conditions. One is that you cut up the credit cards, close the accounts, and never use those things again. The second is that you dont wipe out your savings in the process. Leave something in there, so youre covered in the event of an emergency. Then, rebuild your savings as fast as possible once the debt is out of your way. You have to understand, too, that credit cards arent the problem. The credit card debt isnt the problem, either. They are just symptoms of buying things you dont need, with money you dont have, in order to impress people. Take a long look in the mirror, Peggy, because the person whos looking back at you is the problem. Overspending, disorganization, not earning enough whatever label you want to slap on this situation, you are the reason for the problem. Once you understand and accept that, and you start living on a budget and staying away from debt, youll have taken your first real steps toward financial peace! Dave Dear Dave, Im 35, single, and I have no dependents. Do I need a life insurance policy? Larry Dear Larry, In your situation, if you have enough cash saved up to pay your final expenses and you dont have any debt theres no reason for you to carry a life insurance policy. No one will be harmed financially by your death, and no one would be deprived of the income that would be lost if something unexpected happened to you. Even if you have a mortgage on a home, the house will normally sell for enough to pay off the mortgage. However, if you have debt, or if you dont have some money stashed away in savings, you might want to consider an inexpensive term life insurance policy. At your age, if youre healthy, you can get $100,000 worth of coverage for just $10 to $15 a month. Remember, you dont buy insurance to leave an inheritance. You buy life insurance is to make sure theres enough money to take care of your family and final expenses. You wouldnt want your parents or someone else having to foot the bill! Dave Dave Ramsey is Americas trusted voice on money and business, and CEO of Ramsey Solutions. He has authored best-selling books and hosts The Dave Ramsey Show. Dave RamseyCEO of Ramsey SolutionsDAVE SAYS Follow these steps, and you can become a millionaireSo, you want to become a millionaire. You know your goal, but maybe it seems too far off in the distance, too improbable, too unattainable, for an everyday person like you to reach. Youve seen the success stories on TV, but those people inherited their money, had high-paying jobs, or hit it big with the lottery. Maybe you find yourself thinking: If only I were that lucky. Well, Ive got good news for you. You can become a millionaireand it has nothing to do with your familys money or your education. It has everything to do with you. If you follow these principles, youll be on your way to becoming a millionaire. Are you ready? Steer clear of debt From cars to clothes to houses to jewelry, you can get a loan for pretty much anything nowadays. Theres this idea floating around our culture that you should get what you want the moment you want it. Get it now, pay for it later. And pay more later. But hear me say this: Debt is quicksand to your financial dreams. Every time you buy something on credit, youre digging a deeper hole for yourself. That money youre sending to lenders is money you could be putting toward your future! Take the average car loan, which has a monthly payment of $523 and a term length of five years and nine months. If you were to invest $500 a month for five years instead, you could have $40,000. And look at this: If you invested that $40,000 for another 20 years, you could have almost $270,000! Now wheres that car in 25 years? Most likely in a junkyard. Invest early In addition to steering clear of debt, investing early can help you become a millionaire. If you start putting away $300 a month beginning at age 25, you could reach millionaire status by age 60and be sitting pretty on a $2 million nest egg come retirement (age 67). Thats just $300 a month! If you waited until age 35 to start investing, youd have to put away $800 a month to hit the million-dollar mark by age 60. Lets look at it a different way. If you invested $300 a month for 40 years (age 25 to age 65), you could have $1.75 million. If you invested that $300 a month for 30 years instead (age 35 to age 65), youd only have $651,400. Youd have to work an extra 10 years (to age 70) to hit $1 million. And youd have to work until age 75 to hit $1.75 million. Get serious about your savings If you want to become a millionaire, the percentage you invest is just as important as the actual act of investing. The average personal savings rate in the U.S., including retirement savings and emergency funds, is 5.5 percent. If we apply that percentage to the median household income of approximately $59,000, it works out to $3,245 a year or around $270 a month. Invested over 30 years, assuming a 10 percent rate of return, that money could turn into $586,256. That number looks great, right? It might, until you find out the average couple will need $280,000 for medical expenses in retirement, and that doesnt include long-term care. If you subtract that amount from your investment total, youd only have about $306,000 left. Can you live off that for two decades? It ends up being only $15,300 a year. Let me give you a much better scenario. If you invested 15 percent of that $59,000 income, you would be putting away $8,850 a year or around $737 a month. Over 30 years, that could grow to $1.6 million, assuming a 10 percent return. And if you waited just five more years, youd be sitting on over $2.3 million. That beats $15,300 a year, dont you think? Increase your income to reach your goal faster When I talk about how to become a millionaire, people often say, But Chris, I dont make that much money. I cant save enough. Lets get something straight here: You dont need a six-figure salary to become a millionaire. However, if youre crunching the numbers and realize you still cant put away the recommended 15 percent, you do need to increase your income so you can. How do you do that? You can get a job that pays more. You can take on a second job temporarily. Or you can get training to increase your skills, demand, and earning potential. For example, lets look at the field of nursing. You can become a Nursing Assistant (CNA), Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), Registered Nurse (RN), or an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN). Each of those jobs requires a different level of training and testing, and their salaries all vary. An LPN makes around $45,000 a year, while an RN makes around $70,000. When you increase your skills and expertise, you can increase your salary. Cut unnecessary expenses As you work toward becoming a millionaire, you also want to make sure your money is being spent with intention. So, sit down and evaluate your expenses regularly. Look at your budgets from previous months to see where money may be leaking or where you could cut expenses. Thats money you could be investing and putting toward your 15 percent. Remember, you control your expenses. You may not dictate how much youre charged per watt of electricity, but you do control the thermostat! Keep your millionaire goal front and center The steps to becoming a millionaire run counter to most peoples behavior, which means youll see friends and family going places, doing things, and buying stuff. And if you focus on what theyre doing, you could be in trouble financially. Just this year, a study showed that 57 percent of Millennials said they spent money they hadnt planned to because of what they saw on social media. And 88 percent of them, along with 71 percent of Gen Xers and 54 percent of Baby Boomers, believe social media creates a comparison problem. We live in a comparison culture. We buy stuff we dont need to impress people we dont even know. Who are you trying to impress? Seriously. Its a good question to ask yourself when youre tempted to buy something you dont need. The people I know who have become millionaires didnt get there by playing the comparison game. They stayed focused on their own goals and didnt worry about what other people were thinking or doing. Heres my challenge to you: Instead of obsessing over what you dont have, focus on the valuable but intangible gifts in your lifefamily and friends; your church; work that matters; the legacy youll leave your children. Those will bring you much greater and longer lasting joy than a new car or a destination vacation. And know that its okay to still enjoy stuff. Just make sure it doesnt derail your larger plan to become a millionaire! Chris Hogan is a #1 national best-selling author, dynamic speaker and host of The Chris Hogan Show.

Chris Hogan Even a small amount of medical debt can trigger headachesThe Associated PressIt doesnt take a huge unpaid medical bill to make a collection agency come calling ... and calling. Researchers found in a study of credit reports that more than 2 percent of adults had medical bills under $200 sent to a collection agency. Over half of the annual medical collections were for less than $600, according to the study, which examined 2016 credit reports for more than 4 million unidentified people. A lot of these bills are much more modest than many people will think, said one of the researchers, Benedic Ippolito, an economist with the think tank American Enterprise Institute. Hospitals or other care providers will send a bill to collections when the patient hasnt paid over a certain amount of time, often six to 12 months. That can hurt the patients credit rating and lead to repeat phone calls from the agency that takes over the unpaid debt, according to debt experts. The study, published recently in the journal Health Affairs, also found that trouble with medical debt can hit sooner than patients might think. Heres a deeper look inside the issue. WHO WINDS UP IN DEBT TROUBLE Researchers found that the percentage of people in trouble with medical debt and the size of what is owed generally peaked at a young age, even though medical spending typically rises as people grow older. People in their late 20s were nearly three times as likely to have a medical bill sent to collections than those in their late 60s, when people can qualify for the federal Medicare coverage program. The average size of the medical debt dropped nearly 40 percent from ages 27 to 64. All told, about 16 percent of the credit reports included medical bills in collections. The studys picture of medical debt had some limitations. It only identified bills that landed in collections. It doesnt show debt paid by other means like credit cards. WHAT PUSHES THEM THERE The study didnt delve into the factors, but Ippolito noted that patients in their late 20s probably havent reached their peak earnings or built up savings, and they are more likely to be uninsured. Insurance protection also can be limited because some plans require patients to pay thousands of dollars toward a claim before coverage begins. The extent of a patients illness and whether they miss work often factor into debt problems, said Erin Singleton of the nonprofit Patient Advocate Foundation, which helps critically or chronically ill patients deal with debt and insurance problems. Neither Singleton nor the foundation was involved in the study. Medical bills also can remain unpaid if patients must feed a family or pay utilities first. If its a matter of paying a medical bill or putting food on the table, theyre going to put food on the table, Singleton said. WHAT TO DO Take action when bills arrive. Check to make sure your insurer processed the claim correctly. Many invoices list a phone number if patients have questions or need help. Dont put a bunch of envelopes on the top of your desk and pretend that they dont exist, Singleton said. Billing departments typically will work with patients who have payment concerns, said Rita Robinson, a case manager for the advocacy group. They might be able to set up a payment plan or connect you with some discounts or charity that the hospital offers. Patients can no longer get that help once a bill goes to collections. Robinson said many patients, especially those with cancer, have more anxiety over the bills they will face than over their actual treatment. Theyre often worried that the treatments will stop if they cant pay their bills. Its very terrifying, she said. COURTESYMedical expenses can lead to collection agency involvement if bills are not paid.

(Again, consider tax effects, though.) If there are red flags such as shrinking profit margins or steep debt. Short-term problems can be OK, but look out for long-term ones. If youll need that money within five (or even 10) years, it should be in a less volatile place than stocks. Consider a money market account or a CD. If youre only hanging on for emotional reasons. Focusing only on whether to buy a certain stock and not giving much thought to when you should sell it is a costly blunder. If you leave your dollars in a poor investment, they cant grow for you in a great one.Apple AppealApple (Nasdaq: AAPL) recently reported its third-quarter results, in which revenue popped 17 percent year over year (marking four consecutive quarters of double-digit year-over-year growth) and earnings soared 40 percent higher. Apple has been financially dependent on its iPhone, but it is wisely expanding its revenue in other areas. Its Services segment (which includes Apple Music, the App Store and Apple Pay) is a rising star, with its revenue up by 31 percent in the most recent quarter to $9.5 billion, representing 18 percent of the companys top line. Clearly, Apple not only knows how to sell devices to its customers, but it can also convince them to spend more money in the companys ecosystem through its ever-increasing menu of services. The companys dividend yield was recently at 1.4 percent, and dividend investors should consider that Apple has a very low payout ratio of about 24 percent, meaning that the company has plenty of room to increase that payout. Apple is committed to its shareholders, having announced a $100 billion share repurchase program in the second quarter of 2018. Whether youre looking for a company with earnings, cash on the balance sheet or a wide competitive moat, Apple fits the bill. (The Motley Fool has recommended Apple and owns shares of it as well as the following options on it: long January 2020 $150 calls and short January 2020 $155 calls.) rffShort-Term BluesI bought shares of Novo Nordisk for around $44.50 per share, and now, about a week later, shares have fallen below $41. From my reading, I gather that they may continue to drop and not recover for years. Should I sell and take a big loss or hold on? R.W., online The Fool Responds: Youre being very impatient. Stocks move up and down throughout each day and week and year. Over the long run, the stocks of healthy and growing companies should increase in value, making shareholders wealthier. But even great companies stocks have languished for months or even years and terrific investments can fall in value for a while, too. A week is way too short a time in which to expect to reap a profit. Many fortunes have been made by investing in great companies and then hanging onto the shares for many years as long as the companies remained strong and with bright futures. If you dont have the confidence to remain invested in individual companies, consider just socking money away in a low-fee broad-market index fund, such as one that tracks the S&P 500. Novo Nordisk was recently trading around $47.50 per share. Its facing pricing pressures for its diabetes drugs and investor opinions about it are mixed. Its future has promise, though, and The Motley Fool has recommended it. Just Divide by 0.14748071991788QThe Dow was recently at 25,600. What, exactly, does that number represent? M.M., Decatur, IllinoisAThe Dow refers to the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA), a U.S. stock market index established in 1896. Its an average of the stock prices of 30 companies that include Apple, Boeing, CocaCola, The Home Depot, McDonalds, Nike, Procter & Gamble, Walmart and Visa. It doesnt look like an average, though, when its 25,600 and many of the stocks sport prices below $100.It makes sense, though, because the shares, on average, actually would trade at lofty levels if they had never been split, issued dividends or undergone major changes such as spin-offs or mergers during their time in the index. Therefore, in order to account for all those changes, the stock prices of the 30 component stocks are added together and then divided by the divisor (which is adjusted frequently and was recently 0.14748071991788). To understand how each stock affects the average, know that if, say, Visa stock rises by $10, you can just divide 10 by the divisor and learn that the DJIA will rise by about 67.81 points (10 divided by 0.14748071991788 equals 67.805).***QWhat are orphan drugs in the pharmaceutical world? T.B., Hattiesburg, MississippiAThe U.S. Food & Drug Administration has an Orphan Drug Designation program, offering incentives for companies to develop drugs to treat, diagnose or prevent rare diseases/disorders that affect fewer than 200,000 people in the U.S., or that affect more than 200,000 persons but are not expected to recover the costs of developing and marketing a treatment drug. Since many of these drugs end up with steep prices, they can make a lot of money for biotech and pharmaceutical companies.Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.orgWhen to Sell Your StocksWhen the price of a particular stock suddenly drops sharply, many shareholders rush to sell it. Many sell their stocks when the market suddenly heads south, too. Those can be costly mistakes, though. Dont sell just because a stock or the market is falling, or youve heard some rumors, or someone tells you to sell. Here are good reasons to consider selling: If you cant remember why you bought the stock. If you cant explain exactly how the company makes money. If you hold too many or too few stocks. Portfolios should be diversified, but not too diversified. Aiming for around eight to 15 companies is good for most people. If the reason you bought shares is no longer valid. For example, maybe the company is suddenly facing strong competition. 2018 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

Modest insurance hikes come amid health care debateThe News Service of FloridaFlorida Democrats vowing to make health care a priority in the November elections got a jolt of surprising news this week that could reshape the ongoing back-and-forth over former President Barack Obamas health-care overhaul. The state Office of Insurance Regulation late Tuesday released data that showed health-insurance premiums wont balloon as much as some had feared amid moves by the Trump administration to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. The office reported on average that rates will increase 5.2 percent for individuals who receive coverage through the federal health-insurance exchange, beginning in January. That means the premium for a 28-year-old adult living in Monroe County earning $27,000 annually should be an average of $115 month for a silver plan. Thats the lowest average rate in the state, according to an OIR chart. Conversely, the highest costs for the plan will be in Okeechobee County, where that 28-year-old person would pay, on average, $333 a month for the same policy. The rate increases are some of the lowest ever requested by Florida insurance companies since the federal health law passed in 2010. The law, often referred to as Obamacare, requires insurance companies to issue policies to people regardless of any pre-existing conditions. It also provides cost-sharing reductions for people who qualify. But the federal law also required insurance companies to cover certain health benefits and prevented companies from limiting coverage. Those changes apply to all insurance policies, including those sold to employers in the private market through group plans. For individual policies, carriers submitted rate requests to the Office of Insurance Regulation ranging from a high of a 10.5 percent increase submitted by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida to a low of 5.6 percent, submitted by Florida Health Care Plans. On average, regulators instead approved a 5.2 percent increase for individual policies. The costs of group health insurance increased by an average of 6 percent for the 2019 year, according to the OIR data. Those policies are not bought on the federal exchange and are not subsidized. The program Florida Covering Kids and Families at the University of South Florida works with state agencies and others to advocate and conduct outreach to help people have access to affordable health coverage. Jody Ray, the director of the organization, didnt know what to expect when it came to insurance rates for the 2019 year. This is really good news for Florida, she said. An insurance premium is the amount of money that an individual or business must pay for a policy. Premiums reflect the expected health care costs of the risk pool as well as the costs of the care. Florida Association of Health Plans President and CEO Audrey Brown said in a statement that the recent rate approval is in line with medical inflation and indicates an overall market stabilization. Congress this year eliminated a mandate included in the federal health law that people must buy insurance policies or face tax penalties. The move raised concerns that, without the mandate, only those who are unhealthy would continue to purchase health insurance through the federal exchange. Moreover, the Trump administration has made clear that it will not defend the Affordable Care Act against the latest legal challenge brought by 20 Republican-led states, including Florida. Gov. Rick Scott and other Republican leaders have consistently opposed the sweeping law, which has helped lower the percentage of uninsured citizens in the state and nation. Floridas uninsured rate in 2013, the year before Obamacare plans became available, was 20 percent and one of the highest in the nation. In 2016, the rate was 12.5 percent. Florida also has consistently led the nation in the number of people who enroll in the federal exchange under the law. Last year, more than 1.7 million Floridians entered the marketplace to buy a plan. The vast majority, more than 90 percent, received federal financial help to reduce their monthly premiums. State regulators, who work for an agency controlled by Scott and three other Republicans, released the health-insurance data the same day as Floridas primary elections. Tallahassee mayor Andrew Gillum captured the Democratic nomination for governor edging out four opponents, and Republican Congressman Ron DeSantis won the GOP nomination. Gillum supports Obamacare, while DeSantis has voted to repeal the law. In a conference call on Wednesday, some of the states top Democrats made clear that they would ensure health-care access is a priority issue. Make no mistake, health care is on the ballot this November, said Congressman Ted Deutch, whose district includes parts of Broward and Palm Beach counties.

Experts have expressed concern that the Trump Administrations tariff policies will impact trucking and related industries. Tariffs stirring fear at many US points of entry for importsThe Associated PressTo understand why the impact of President Donald Trumps tariffs could be felt throughout the United States, consider this: From the West Coast to the Great Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico, at least 10 percent of imports at many ports could be hit by new tariffs if Trumps proposals take full effect, according to an exclusive analysis of government data by The Associated Press. Ports and ground terminals in nearly every state handle goods that are now or will likely soon be covered by import tariffs. And port officials fear this could mean a slowdown in shipping that would have ripple effects on truckers and others whose jobs depend on trade. Since March, the U.S. has applied new tariffs of up to 25 percent on nearly $85 billion worth of steel and aluminum and various Chinese products, mostly goods used in manufacturing. Tariffs are working big time, Trump tweeted recently. The president has argued that the tariffs will help protect American workers and force U.S. trading partners to change rules that the president insists are unfair to the United States. At the same time, his administration is preparing to slap tariffs of up to 25 percent on an additional $200 billion in Chinese imports many of them parts and materials U.S. companies depend on, along with consumer goods after a public comment period ends Thursday. These tariffs are the administrations response to its charges that Beijing uses predatory tactics to try to supplant U.S. technological supremacy. Those tactics include cybertheft and a requirement that American companies hand over trade secrets in exchange for access to Chinas market. In New Orleans, port officials say a tariff-related drop in shipments is real, not merely a forecast. Steel imports there have declined more than 25 percent from a year ago, according to the ports chief commercial officer, Robert Landry. The port is scouting for other commodities it can import. But expectations appear to be low. In our business, steel is the ideal commodity, Landry said. Its big, its heavy, we charge by the ton so it pays well. You never find anything that pays as well as steel does. The port of Milwaukee imports steel from Europe and ships out agricultural products from the Midwest. Steel imports havent dropped yet because they are under longterm contracts, said the port director, Adam Schlicht. But there has been an almost immediate halt in outbound shipments of corn because of retaliatory duties imposed by the European Union on American products. Much of the corn, he said, is just staying in silos. They are filled to the brim. Many other ports have been humming along and even enjoyed an unexpected bump in imports during June and July as U.S. businesses moved up orders to ship before the new tariffs took effect. That started with manufacturing goods and is now spreading to retail items for back-to-school and Christmas. Some of my retail customers are forward-shipping the best they can to offset proposed tariffs, says Peter Schneider, executive vice president of T.G.S. Transportation, a trucking company in Fresno, California. Port officials were encouraged by this weeks announcement that the United States and Mexico had reached a preliminary agreement to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement, hoping it might lead to reduced trade barriers. Canadas participation in any new deal to replace NAFTA, though, remains a major question mark. The port officials continue to worry, though, that Trump will make good on a plan to expand tariffs to an additional $200 billion in Chinese imports a list that includes fish and other foods, furniture, carpets, tires, rain jackets and hundreds of additional items. Tariffs would make those items costlier in the United States. And if Americans buy fewer of those goods, it would likely lead to fewer container ships steaming into U.S. ports. The impact will be felt keenly at West Coast ports like Los Angeles and Long Beach. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, relying on information from his port officials, said his port the biggest in the United States could suffer a 20 percent drop in volume if the additional $200 billion in tariffs are imposed against Chinese goods. Jock OConnell, an economist in California who studies trade, said he doubts a downturn would be so severe that would match the slump that accompanied the global recession of 2008 but we will see a definite impact. Here are some of the key findings from the AP analysis: U.S. tariffs will cover goods that are imported at more than 250 seaports, airports and ground terminals in 48 states. At 18 of 43 customs districts including those representing ports around Los Angeles, San Francisco, New Orleans and Houston at least 10 percent of their total import value could be covered by new tariffs if all Trumps proposals take effect. Retaliatory duties by China and other countries cover $27 billion in U.S. exports. Eugene Seroka, executive director of the Los Angeles port, worries that if tariffs make it too expensive to import, there will be an impact on jobs. Seroka and others dont expect layoffs on the docks. Union longshoremen whose average pay last year on the West Coast was $163,000, according to the Pacific Maritime Association, which negotiates for the ports often have contract provisions ensuring that they are paid even if theres no work. And there are fewer of them than there were a few decades ago because the advent of shipping containers has reduced the need for people on the docks. Dwayne Boudreaux, an International Longshoremens Association official in Louisiana, said, though, that his stevedores are handling about 10 percent less steel from Japan because of the new tariffs. We dont think its going to (get) worse, he said. But, he added, who knows that could change from the next press conference. The impact might be greater on truck drivers and warehouse workers. Fewer will be needed, according to OConnell. Many drivers who deliver shipping containers from the dock to warehouses are independents contracted by trucking companies, and they dont get paid if there is nothing to haul. Some might leave the profession, said Weston LaBar, CEO of the Harbor Trucking Association in Long Beach, California. Its hard to retain drivers, he said. If we dont have work for those drivers, were worried they will leave for some other segment of the trucking business or go into another business, like construction. Less shipping means less revenue for the ports something that could limit their ability to pay for expansion and improvement projects, according to Kurt Nagle, president of the American Association of Port Authorities. He said U.S. ports are in the midst of a planned $155 billion in infrastructure spending from 2016 through 2020. The current trade war was foreshadowed in January by steep U.S. tariffs on imported solar panels and washing machines. It exploded with the U.S. tariffs of 25 percent on imported steel and 10 percent on aluminum. Then came two rounds of duties targeting about $50 billion in imports from China. Along the way, China, the European Union, Turkey, Canada and Mexico imposed retaliatory duties on U.S. goods including farm products and Harley-Davidson motorcycles. On top of the $200 billion in additional Chinese imports that could face U.S. tariffs starting next week, Trump has said that if Beijing continues to retaliate, he may eventually slap tariffs on, all told, $450 billion in Chinese goods. That would be equal to nearly 90 percent of Chinas 2017 exports to the U.S. Trade wars are usually temporary. President George W. Bush abandoned his steel tariffs after less than two years. Milwaukees port director worries, however, that damage from the current trade dispute could linger. Canada is increasing corn exports to Europe, and Brazil is trying to pick up the slack in soybean exports to China. Others are already picking up that business, Schlicht said.

Career Online High School program is backEveryone knows that you can check out books at the Library, but thats just one of a multitude of services that modern public libraries offer to library users. One of the most exciting and life-changing programs that Columbia County Public Library has ever offered, Career Online High School, is making a comeback this summer, and we are excited to be able to offer Library users the opportunity to earn a fully accredited high school diploma once again. This years legislative session brought great news regarding the Career Online High School pro gram. The state budget for fiscal year 2018-19, which began on July 1, 2018, includes funding for the Career Online High School program in Floridas public libraries. In 2015, Columbia County Public Library was one of eleven Florida public libraries chosen to participate in the Career Online High School pilot project. The program was funded again in the 2016-17 fiscal year, with 15 more public libraries participating, but funding was eliminated in the 201718 state budget. As of July 16, Career Online High School is coming back to Columbia County Public Library. Career Online High School is a national program administered by Smart Horizons Career Online Education through a partnership with Gale, a part of Cengage Learning, and funded by the State of Florida. The Librarys program will once again provide free scholarships to qualified adult learners who wish to receive a high school diploma to advance their careers, prepare for workforce entry or continue their education. Upon successfully completing the program, a fully accredited high school diploma and a career certificate will be awarded. To be considered for the program, applicants must: Be an adult, age 19 or older Be a resident of Columbia County Have a Columbia County Public Library card (in good standing) Complete an online self-assessment Successfully complete one prerequisite course within two weeks Successfully complete an in-person interview at the library We couldnt be more thrilled to have the chance to offer this program to Columbia County residents again. During the first two years of the project, Columbia County Public Library awarded scholarships to 96 Columbia County students, and to date, 52 of those students have earned high school diplomas and career certificates. As of July 30, Columbia Countys 52 alumni accounted for more than 12 percent of Floridas 423 graduates.

Taking care of debts, responsibilities and important relationships will put your mind at ease and encourage you to move forward with projects you could only dream about in the past. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Bring about the changes that will benefit you the most. Dont feel you have to take on someone elses battles. Partner with someone who shares your concerns and plans for the future. Do your best to stay healthy and avoid minor mishaps. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Youll find it difficult to manage your emotions. Problems will develop if you or someone else is not being upfront. Put greater emphasis on making personal physical improvements and being straight with others regarding your intentions. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Get involved in what matters the most to you. Standing up for your rights will provoke disagreements, but it will also help you better understand both sides of whatever issue concerns you as well as encourage workable solutions. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A change of pace will do you good. Taking time to relax and rethink your next move will help you avoid an emotional confrontation. Acting too quickly or without enough information will lead to a standoff with someone you love. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Do things your way. Make a point of being unique and trusting that you can pull off whatever needs to be done. Your tenacity and confidence will make others stand up and take note. Live in the moment. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Avoiding someone who is demanding or critical wont put an end to the harassment. Address whoever makes you feel uncomfortable or stressed out by sharing what it does to your relationship. Take control instead of running away. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You need a diversion or a change of plans that will invigorate and inspire you. Dont wait for someone else to force change on you. Step up and make choices that will bring love and happiness into your life. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Share your true feelings and find out where you stand. If someone is reluctant to share, you should question why and consider the motives behind the secrecy. Trust in what you see as well as how you feel. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Personal improvements, inner growth, travel and getting in touch with your feelings are all encouraged. The changes you make as a result of your findings will make a difference to the way you live and how you relate to others. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Entertain at home or make changes to your space if it will encourage you to be more creative or help you cut your overhead. Use your intelligence and stick to tried-and-true methods to stabilize your life. Romance is highlighted. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Keep an open mind, but dont let anyone take advantage of you emotionally. Showing compassion is one thing, but taking on responsibilities that dont belong to you should not be considered. Offer suggestions, but dont offer to do the work. Phone calls made on the run offend friend on the other endDEAR ABBY Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com DEAR ABBY: May I say something about people who call friends or others they havent talked to recently while theyre driving to an appointment or other errand, only to abruptly end the conversation when the destination is reached? Two people have done this to me recently. One was an old friend I hadnt seen in 13 years. As soon as the destination was reached, I heard an abrupt, Well, Im here ... talk to ya later! Click! I think its incredibly rude. Its as if the recipient of the call is merely an afterthought to alleviate boredom while driving. No matter what the recipient feels or wants to say, the conversation is ended. To be clear: I do not have a reputation of talking too much or extending phone conversations. Talkativeness on my part was not a reason for this behavior. I feel if someone wants to talk to me and respects me as an individual, the conversation should be a MUTUAL interaction -not something crammed into the callers schedule. Id rather the person not call than treat me like a second-class citizen. -WANTING TO CATCH UP DEAR WANTING: My mother used to complain to me about the same thing when another relative did it with her. (Im home now, gotta go!) I dont think people who do this mean to be rude; they may simply be overscheduled. However, I agree that its insensitive and, because it bothered you, I hope you made your feelings known. Im glad you wrote because it happens often, I suspect, and not just to you. DEAR ABBY: Life hasnt been easy for me. I taught in inner-city schools for 35 years and lost three life partners who were addicted to alcohol and drugs before they died of AIDS. Out of necessity, I had to carry on with my professional life while struggling with my unfortunate personal life. Im happily retired now and living a wonderful life in Palm Springs, California. But sometimes I find myself starting to dwell on unhappy memories from my past. When it happens, I have found an effective coping method. It came from a simple mantra a former student of mine posted online: Theres a reason the rearview mirror is so small and the windshield is so large. Its because where youre headed is much more important than where youve been. Now, when a sad memory comes to mind, I say to myself, big windshield; small rearview mirror, let go of the unwanted thought and move on. This has been beneficial for my well-being, and I hope it will be for others. -DESERT JACK DEAR JACK: Im glad you shared this. Clinging to loss and sadness isnt healthy for anyone. Sometimes we need to remind ourselves to keep the past behind us rather than let it clutter up our present. Thank you for sharing your coping method. I, too, hope it will help readers.

Keep kids on their A game this year with the following tips. Get the kids involved Getting your kids involved in packing their lunches is not only a great way to teach responsibility, its also an opportunity to discuss the fundamentals of healthy eating plus with helpers afoot, it may just save you some time and energy. Kids will enjoy feeling like they have some control over what goes into their lunches. Keep them focused by providing them with structured choices, such as -turkey and swiss sandwich or cheddar and apple? Carrot sticks or sugar snap peas? Include fruit Fruit is an important part of a childs nutritious diet, so be sure that lunches include healthy fruit servings. Juice labels can be especially confusing, however, sticking to options made from 100 percent juice is a good rule of thumb. For example, Motts Sensibles, available in three flavors in convenient 6-ounce pouches, contain 30 percent less sugar compared to 100 percent apple juices, and contain no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners. Another way to include some fruit at lunch? Applesauce. A classic kids favorite, todays applesauce is often healthier and more versatile than it once was. Free of added sugar and artificial colors, sweeteners and flavors, Motts Unsweetened Applesauce, for example, comes in flavors like granny smith, strawberry and blueberry, and can be used in lunchtime recipes such as Applesauce Energy Bars or Golden Apple Raisin Squares to boost flavor and nutrition. Pick the right pack Make your life easy and promote wellness with great lunch gear. Check labels; dishwasher-safe containers will streamline your routine and non-toxic materials will help keep kids healthy and safe. If you plan to include both hot and cold food items, look into ice packs, sturdy leakproof thermoses and lunch bags or boxes that feature compartments. Consistently creating great midday meals may sound like a tall order, but with a few go-to essentials and some smart packing strategies, you can help keep kids fueled for more focused learning. -StatePoint WavebreakMediaMicro / stock.Adobe.comGetting kids involved in nutritious lunch choices is important. Fans stream in for second day of Aretha Franklin public viewingThe Associated PressMourners streamed in for a second day Wednesday to pay their respects to Aretha Franklin, who was dressed in a different outfit for her final public viewing, as if making a costume change during a show. Fans waited festively outside, then walked in a solemn, single-file line into the rotunda of Detroits Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History. There, they found Franklin in a polished bronze casket and a sheer baby blue dress with matching shoes, a change from the bright red outfit seen Tuesday across the world. On the inside of the lid, embroidered into the fabric, read Aretha Franklin the Queen of Soul. The two-day viewing was part of a week of commemorations for the legend, who died Aug. 16 of pancreatic cancer. She was 76. Workers carefully moved Franklins polished bronze casket from the rotunda late Wednesday night and loaded it in to a 1940 Cadillac LaSalle hearse. Journalists from The Associated Press were allowed to document the caskets movement after the public viewing concluded. A sold-out concert called A Peoples Tribute to the Queen will be held Thursday night at Detroits Chene Park Detroit Amphitheatre. A marathon funeral with an all-star list of speakers and performers was scheduled for Friday. Just as Franklins more than six decades of music wrought emotions out of her fans, so too did her viewing. As they approached the casket and heaping displays of roses, many people smiled, cried, crossed themselves, bowed their heads or blew kisses. The strains of Franklins gospel recordings echoed in the airy space. I was pushed by ... but a tear still came, said Maggie Penn, 78, of Detroit. The retired counselor, who grew up in the same neighborhood as Franklin and crossed paths with her in the pre-fame years, said she always appreciated that the singer remained rooted. She never forgot from which she came, Penn said. Gina Moorman attended Tuesday nights sorority ceremony staged in Franklins honor at the museum and returned Wednesday. I wasnt even going to do it, but I wanted to see her again, said Moorman, 57, as she waited with hundreds of others in a line that snaked around to the back of the museum and beyond. Its a real blessing to see her. Peggie Funny and her friend Mary A. Wilson, of Columbia, South Carolina, both born in 1954, came to Detroit for one day only on a whim because they wanted to pay their respects. They were standing outside the museum taking video and sharing it with friends on social media. During the s, anything she made during that time, we were just dancing to and enjoying it, Funny said. Seeing Franklin in her casket rendered Wilson speechless. I felt very emotional going in, very emotional, she said. I just wanted to stand there. I froze. They were both impressed that Franklin had on a different outfit. Delana Kidd said she woke up Wednesday and knew she had to go to the museum. Today was my day off, so I said, Youve got to come, Kidd said. Kidd met Franklin at a store where she worked about 10 years ago, and the encounter made her a forever fan, she said. She said the singer looked beautiful while lying in repose: I dont know about red yesterday. I didnt see it, but ... she just looked gorgeous, peaceful, Kidd said. Lauren Mills, 74, said her late husband proposed to her at a Detroit-area Franklin concert in 1977. Shes not sure what overcame him, since they had seen Franklin perform many times before, but I guess it was something special, she said. It was just something about her voice that calmed you whatever you were going through, said Mills, who attended Tuesday nights ceremony. Seeing her, I would say she was saying, Ive done my duty. Im OK Im going to rest now, Mills said. The BEST partner to your morning coffee. very Call to subscribe today! 386-752-1293News, sports, weather, local events, classieds and more.
