Thanks for reading. Property tax hike nixedBy CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comMeet the new property tax rate, same as the old one, the Columbia County Commission said Thursday night, after backing down on a proposed hike. At a budget hearing, County Manager Ben Scott presented commissioners with two versions of the budget for the fiscal year starting in October. One kept property taxes at the current 8.015 millage rate, while the other would increase the millage to 8.87. Commissioners tentatively approved the lower rate. Throughout the year, the commission repeated an ultimatum to voters pass a one-cent sales tax during the Aug. 28 primary election to fund infrastructure projects and free up other revenue for construction of a new jail, now estimated at more than $30 million, or property taxes might have to go up. Voters gave a collective no thanks to the first option at the ballot box, and members of the public who spoke during Thursdays meeting overwhelmingly opposed the second. The stage was set for commissioners to lay their cards on the table and reveal whether they were willing to follow through with raising property taxes. They werent. Commissioner Ron Williams said that if the county needed to put jail-related work on pause for two or three years to avoid raising property taxes, then so be it. Im not going to vote to raise ad valorem, Williams said. Commissioner Rusty DePratter agreed, saying the county isnt necessarily in a bind just because it has to live within its means. Theres five businessmen on this board, and we need to act like businessmen, DePratter said. Commissioner Bucky Nash said the county must tighten its belt for the next two years if it continues work on the jail without increasing the property tax rate. Im OK with that, I dont mind having a bare-bones budget, Nash said, laying out details of a plan to do so. Commission Chairman Tim Murphy addressed comments Williams made about the estimated price tag of the jail jumping from $25 million to more than $30 million and said he would work to ensure taxpayers get the best value for their money with the project. Were going to bring back a good plan and were going to bring back a real dollar figure, Murphy said. The new fiscal year goes into effect Oct. 1. Commissioners will have a second and final budget hearing Sept. 20. None of the people who spoke during open public comments voiced support for the higher property tax rate. Among the speakers was Bonnie Foster, who said she was recently diagnosed with Parkinsons disease and living on a fixed income. The county might not think much of an increase from 8.015 to 8.87, Foster said. But when youre talking about an individual income that does not increase, its a big deal, she said.

RR O BERBER T BRIDGEBRIDGE S /Lake City RR eport erCommissioner RR usty DD ePr atter, right, argues against a tax increase at Thursdays meeting. AA lso pictur ed are commissioners Tim Murphy, left, and Bucky Nash.Burt Reynolds dies at 82NEW YORK Burt Reynolds, the handsome film and televi sion star known for his acclaimed performances in Deliverance and Boogie Nights and for an active off-screen life which included relationships with Loni Anderson, Sally Field and Dinah Shore, has died at age 82. His death was confirmed Thursday by his agent Todd Eisner, who did not immediately have further details. Reynolds inspired a wide range of responses over his long, erratic career: critical acclaim and critical scorn, commercial success and box office bombs. Reynolds made scores of movies, ranging from lightweight fare such as the hits The Cannonball Run and Smokey and the Bandit to more serious films like The Longest Yard and The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing. He was nominated for an Oscar for Boogie Nights, the Paul Thomas Anderson film about the pornography industry; won an Emmy for the TV series Evening Shade, and received high praise for his starring role in Deliverance. But he also was a frequent nominee for the Razzie, the tongue-in-cheek award for Hollywoods worst performance, and his personal life provided ongoing drama, particularly after an acrimonious divorce from Anderson in 1995. He had a troubled marriage to Judy Carne, a romance with Shore and a relationship with Field damaged by his acknowledged jealousy of her success. Through it all he presented a genial persona, often the first to make fun of his own conflicted image. My career is not like a regular chart, mine looks like a heart attack, he told The Associated Press in 2001. Associated Press RR eynolds Smokey and the Bandit star had 6-decade career. It was also Chasteens last year re-branding the war for the Olustee Festival with her digital depictions of local life during the late 1800s. She has the this talent for picking up the right subject and she has done it over the years for us, said longtime Blue Grey Army Executive Director Faye Warren. The Blue Grey Army is responsible for staging the Olustee Festival each year. During her time with the organization Chasteen picked up numerous commendations from the state organization for promotional material. Wednesday afternoon she received the Florida Festivals and Events Association Sunsational Award for her 2018 Discover Olustee poster featuring a child posing with a horse for the 40th Annual Olustee Battle Festival. I feel like the re-branding campaign was a success because we brought a new look to the festival and a reconnection to the community, Chasteen said. I just didnt produce one piece of artwork. It was several pieces of supporting artwork along with photographs that would be a cross platform campaign. The work included pamphlets and guides that presented the festival in a different light with a focus on minorities, youth and women. Warren said she was pleased with the final product, and agreed that the project hit its mark. Shes been an excellent artist for us, Warren said. Shes extremely talented. Chasteen has a distinguished background in photography throughout the state. Locally she operates chasteenphotoink.com, through which she conducts general photography in the area and performs freelance assignments regularly for the Lake City Reporter. She is the living history program coordinator at the Lake City Historical Museum and is program assistant of Columbia County 4H. She said she works closely with young people and their influence has shaped her take on history. I work with a lot of youth and I really want to get them to know that history isnt as boring as sitting in a classroom and memorizing dates, Chasteen said. Theres so much more to it than that because it was, at one time, it was real life.

Williams told them she would meet them at the corner of Baya Drive and Melrose. After driving away, the deputies regained contact with Williams, at the intersection of Melrose and Putnam. At this time Williams asked the deputies to drive her to her house. She then stated that she was real and that she was not going to steal our money, the report said. Sarah said that she is only helping out with the weed and that all she is a hoe. Hoe is a slang term for prostitute. Ultimately, Sarah entered the unmarked vehicle and provided a paper lottery ticket containing loose marijuana, for which she was paid $10. She then said that the deputies could stay at her house and have sex, after which prices for various sexual acts were discussed. She stated that she does not smoke weed but smokes Anna, the reported said, and added that she claimed the drugs were used to assist her in providing sexual acts by numbing her mouth. After circling back to Melrose and Putnam, the deputies identified themselves and asked Williams to step out of the vehicle, at which time she was placed in handcuffs and placed under arrest. We then transported Sarah to a nearby church where we spoke to her in a more secluded location, the report said, adding that she then provided the name and address of an individual from whom she had bought marijuana. Another deputy soon arrived, and Williams was transported to the CCDC without incident. WEEDContinued From 1A Labor Day and will undergo roughly two and a half weeks worth of renovations. On Thursday morning resident commuters and interstate travelers alike looking for their coffee fix were jolted, and left puzzled when they encountered a blocked drive through and a gutted store. Save all the obvious signs of renovation, there was little indication the store was closed. But, those that left their vehicles for a closer look found two signs hanging inside, and their answer. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause but we look forward to having you come visit our newly renovated store on the 21st, it said. While there they also learned the nearest location for any stringent Starbucks adherent to find their coffee of choice was Gainesville. Yet for the locals, the signs also contained clues as to some of the new features to be found in the store when it reopens. Crowley elaborated on some of those, although he deferred most questioning to corporate coffee officers who were unresponsive to inquiries Thursday. We will have nitro cold brew on draft, said Crowley, local store manager for two years. Its actually a new program thats being rolled out to as many Starbucks as possible. He described it as a smoother version of the cold brew which he said was, a fairly strong ice coffee.

Whats that secret to a happy life? If you already know it, dont read this! Recently in the news: Two guys in a work van, on their way to a job, spotted a jumper on a high bridge. He was standing on the railing, about to leap. They stopped to help. The driver opened his window to talk to him. After a brief conversation, that driver asked him, Why not come on down, and have a beer with us and talk about it? That was the turning point for the would-be jumper. He climbed down and accepted the offer. Later, the driver reported, Sometimes you just need a buddy! What an unexpected, happy, good ending to the story. For a happy life, John McCains answer was: A chance to serve my country, and always do the right thing. The Bible is full of wise suggestions, if you choose to look for them. Willie Nelson, 76-year-old famous country/western popular singer, was recently interviewed for an AARP Magazine article for retired seniors. When he was asked, Whats the secret to happiness? He replied, Do what you want to do! And if you dont want to, just get out of my (expletive) way! Research in the field of positive psychology provides a lot of evidence that folks who have positive attitudes, and a positive outlook on life, tend to enjoy life more. Sometimes in spite of tragic circumstances or very challenging situations they face. They are able to find the good in everything they face, even those painful or unpleasant experiences. They usually report feeling like they have a lot of control of their own lives, and they have some close, loving relationships. Whats my idea of that happier and better life? Im continually finding more and more ways to build that good life. I think you can be happier today, immediately. And you can continue to build that happier life, and make today the first happy day of every happy day to come. For me, its coming down to a few basic principles. I find that having positive attitudes, doing my best to always do the right thing, reaching out to others, giving back to life more than I take, and making the most of what Ive got to work with, like my abilities, talents, skills, knowledge, and character, bring me closer and closer to that happier, more meaningful, and more fulfilling life. I always told my two wonderful sons as they became good men: Do what you love doing, and happiness and success will follow. They tell me that it works. We all have some special talents, skills, abilities, and knowledge that we can develop. And when we use them, the world is a little better because were here. Life, and all the surprises, tragedies, crises, disasters, as well as successes, joys, good times and good things in my life, all seem to come from facing the challenges life sends our way, and looking for the opportunities that come along with them. Use those precious lessons from life that can make your life a little better, and make a difference to others too. I wouldnt change anything about my life. My experiences, and the lessons life taught me, have made me what I am today. Whats my wish for you? Have that happier, better, more meaningful and fulfilling life that I think we all deserve. So what is the secret to happiness? I dont think there is only one secret. Maybe the secrets to that happy life are a collection of ways of thinking, believing, feeling, and actions you can take, to build your own happiness, as well as the happiness of others. Make the world a little better because youre here. Id like to hear your ideas on what makes life a positive, happy experience for you. Share your ideas, and Ill share them with others.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman ANOTHER VIEW LETTERS TO THE EDITORA $4 billion fumbleAmericans love villains, or at least love to hate them. Darth Vader beating up on dashing Luke Skywalker and Lord Voldemort scaring the innocent young Harry Potter are the stuff of tales that affirm the triumph of good over evil. When the script is flipped and the anti-hero prevails, audiences boo, hiss and jeer. So, too, theres hissing at Nikes attempt to transform Colin Kaepernick, the leagues bad boy, into Sergeant York. Americans arent buying it. Mr. Kaepernick, who started the fad of kneeling for the national anthem before the game, has signed a lucrative deal that makes him the face of Nikes Just Do It campaign to celebrate its 30th anniversary. The visage of the onetime San Francisco 49ers quar terback is splashed across the scene with a pithy call to ar ms: Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing ever ything. (Whatever that means.) Mr Kaeper nick knows something about sacrifice. His personal crusade for social justice has derailed a career in professional football, costing him millions of dollars. Nike is redeeming his loss with a contract worthy of a top-end NFL player, according to Yahoo Sports, including his own branded line of football gear. The sidelined signal-callers refusal to stand for the Star Spangled Banner during the 2016 season fueled the Black Lives Matter protests against police shootings of black men. His contract with the 49ers was not renewed and he became persona non grata to owners of the other teams, who prefer not to partner with a man who wears socks depicting cops as pigs. Mr. Kaepernicks crusade rests upon a myth, that trigger-happy cops go hunting for black men to shoot and kill. In 2017, for example, 987 persons were fatal ly shot by police, according to a database compiled by The W ashington Post. Of those, 940 wer e male. Of those, 458 were white, 223 were black and 179 were Hispanic. Most of those killed were armed 579 with guns, 156 with knives, and 26 with toy weapons. Of the unarmed 68 men fatally shot, 19 were black. Every needless death is a tragedy and wearing a badge does not immunize those enforcing the law against making mistakes. But in an American popu lation of 325 million, 20 million are black men, and their chances of being killed by police while unarmed is about the same as being killed by lightning strike. Mr Kaepernick fanned the anger over police shoot ings in 2016 even as the number of deaths declined. His lamentations might have been saved for police of ficers, whose deaths in the line of duty wer e on the rise. The number of officer fatalities receded in 2017, but is running higher this year with 37 recorded so far by the Officer Down Memorial Page. In contrast to Nikes new marketing star, these officers and their families actually did sacrifice everything. With social media ablaze with patriotic sportsmen burning their Nike sneakers in protest, the value of Nike stock has tumbled more than $4 billion. Sports fans can get along without citizenship lectures from rich spoiled athletes, and they dont need Colin Kaepernick prompting them to believe in some thing. They already do. Its called America, and they show no sign of sur r endering it to a washed-up quarterback.Whats the secret to happiness?

A few years ago, I called the governing body to request an appearance on the next agenda. I wanted to address the need for a shelter and transit system. I was told its all about the money. No I could not appear on the agenda. So much for the freedom of speech with new and innovative ideas. I even asked if there could be a small amount added into the budget to assist the church renovation of a donated building behind Walmart for a future shelter. No, no, no! How is it the taxpayers can refurbish the old Blanche Hotel for well over one million plus? Lake City exits and egresses have been planted with palms and oaks to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars. Political decisions are topsy-turvy to the needs of humanity! How can we close our eyes, ears and hearts to the old man under the overpass on a cold, rainy day/night? We can watch him shiver and hear his stomach growl with hunger. Does the public think to drop off a bag of food and drink? Poptop can of chili, stew, fish, chicken, fruits and vegetables. Dont forget bottled water and juices. Plastic ware and towelettes are needed too. Warm blankets are always welcome. Last year there were over 500 homeless school students that were huddled in cars and tents in 29-degree weather. Where do these kids shower and eat their meals? Relief is badly needed. Lake City does not have a public transit system. Why not? Some Suwannee vehicles sighted rarely have occupants, which raises red flags. Could this possibly be a money laundering scheme? May God have mercy on the governing souls of Lake City to make a positive change today. Taxpayers, please call your representative and ask questions on their lack of empathy. Changes will never be addressed without pressure from the public or news media.

Matthew Mainieri lost his life while trying to break up a fight, officials said answering the call of a peacemaker. The details of what happened early Sunday morning in Murrells Inlet, S.C., are disturbing. Police allege Sgt. Mainieri, who was off duty, was hit in the head during a fight outside a bar. Despite the best efforts of bystanders and emergency responders, the injury proved fatal. The 41-year-old, a 20-year veteran of the South Windsor police force, was the kind of law enforcement officer any community would be lucky to have. He received a medal of valor and a chiefs award, and he was one of three members of the police department recognized for their efforts in a July 2009 13-hour standoff with Richard Shenkman. Sgt. Mainieri was among those who took him into custody. Former police chief Matthew Reed said Sgt. Mainieri sought out responsibility and never wanted anything in return. He worked with youths in town and was remarkably dedicated to the law enforcement community, Mr. Reed said. Good people are easy to find in Connecticuts small towns, but Sgt. Mainieris commitment to the safety of his neighbors was unparalleled. His death is a devastating loss to South Windsor and all of Connecticut.Hartford Courant

The statistics the article was predicated on were generated by a survey conducted by Nashville-based LifeWay Research. I found the report unsettling for several reasons. It seems that America is becoming dangerously and increasingly polarized by what I think are petty political passions. Common courtesy and mutual respect in political dialog are forsaken, as we grow more bitterly divided. This poll reveals that the church, which should be a model of unity and civility to the rest of society, may be failing to follow Peters admonition to honor all people and to love the brotherhood, 1 Peter 2:17. Is our culture having a greater impact on the church than the church is having on the culture? That seems to be the case here when it comes to politics. Responsible Christian citizenship dictates believers should inform themselves on the issues and vote our conscience based on our biblical convictions. But political matters are not our priority, and should never be the focus of the church, nor the basis for worshiping together. Our priority, our focus, our worship should be now and always centered on Christ. The late Billy Graham, said, The central issues of our time arent economic or political or social, important as these are. The central issues of our time are spiritual and moral. Politics matter, but they are not our mission; they are important, but they are not our priority. Politics are not what made this country great and are wholly incapable of making this country great again. The practice of biblical principles were the foundation this nation was built on and what made us the economic and political giant we are today, and only a return to those practices hold any hope for our nation to survive much less becoming great again. What our nation needs now is the example of a church united on biblical principles, not divided by the passing politics of this life, and certainly not divided in the house of worship. Jesus told Pilate, My kingdom is not of this world, John 18:36. Worldly governments are temporal entities destined to falter and fail, the only government that offers any help in this life and hope for the next is the kingdom of God. It does not take a rocket scientist to see that our government is broken, Politics in the pew should this be?CHRISTIAN CONCEPTS Gary Kinggarybkingcc@gmail.com Politics are not what made this country great and are wholly incapable of making this country great again. Wouldnt it be great if we could fix other people? Since we are all prone to try this, you have likely discovered that trying to change somebody is a lot like spitting in the wind; it doesnt work, and it can get really messy! In fact, we are even limited in our own ability to produce lasting change in ourselves, so why on earth do we ever think we can change someone else? The boundary of power makes clear what we have power over and where we have no power. It is critical for us to understand that we have no power over the attitudes and actions of other people. No matter how much we love them, we cannot make them more mature or responsible. We also cannot change another persons character or stop their bad habits, no matter how obvious it is to us that they need to. What we do have is the power to influence others. Websters dictionary defines influence as power of producing an effect without force or a direct command. Think about some things that we often do to try and get someone to change: repeat ourselves over and over (better known as nagging), criticize, scream and yell, bully, threaten, withdraw and give the silent treatment. Now think about those who influence you. Would someone doing these things make you want to listen and cooperate? Me neither. Instead, we are more likely to respond to someone who is not trying to fix us even if we know they dont approve of our choices or behavior. Instead we can draw a boundary by saying something like, Your irresponsible behavior (be specific) is causing problems in our relationship. Is there some way I can help you? I love you, but if this behavior continues our relationship will suffer (explain how). It is your choice. This allows the offender to be aware of the problem and to understand the consequences if they continue their irresponsible behavior. This may mean not being included certain activities or a distancing in the relationship. It also gives the freedom to choose to change the behavior with the benefit of being reconnected to the relationship. The problem is that we The power to influence others is importantWhat we do have is the power to influence others. HEART MATTERS Jesus servesJesus taught his disciples that the kingdom of heaven is about servicing others and not self. As he is coming out of Jericho he would have the opportunity to teach those around him what serving others would look like as two blind beggars cry out to him for mercy. So please read Matthew 20:29-34. On this road to Jerusalem there have been great crowds that have followed Jesus, there have been many who have been healed by him and some have asked him questions, but today there are two men who will be forever changed by him. These two men are blind men. They are sitting by the road begging for a handout so that they can eat. This is a legitimate form of living for these two men because they cannot see to work. As these two blind men sit by the road side they hear the noise of the crowd coming closer. Then they learn that Jesus was in that crowd. These men cried out Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David! to get his attention. They kept calling to Jesus and the crowd kept telling them to shut up and dont bother him. The more the crowd tried to quite them the louder they became. Here is a simple truth that we all need to remember Satan wants to discourage us in our crying out to Jesus. Others who do not believe will try to discourage you from crying out to Jesus for mercy. Dont listen to them! Look up Hebrews 11:1 & 6 and underline these verses in your Bible. Jesus heard these two mens cry for mercy because they continued to have boldness and faith to cry out to Jesus. These men were crying out, Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David! They were acknowledging him as the promise Messiah of Israel. In the book of Isaiah, it is written that the Messiah will open the eyes of the blind. (Isaiah 29:18, 35:5) The King of Israel hears their persistent cry for mercy and stops, calls these men over to himself and ask them what it is they want him to do. Their response is Lord, let our eyes be opened. The Lord Jesus simply touches their eyes and they were opened. Jesus, the King of Israel, the promised Messiah, answers their request. Are you crying out to Jesus? Are you asking him to have mercy on you? When Jesus has mercy on any of us he is withholding from us what we rightfully deserve. Many people will never cry out to Jesus to have mercy on them for the forgiveness of sins because they have never been brought under conviction of their sin against a holy God. Everybody wants to go to heaven without repentance of sin. Just like, everybody in the church wants a revival. When we see our sin just as these men saw their blindness we to will cry out like they did to Jesus, the Son of David for mercy.

Only changed people can change things, and only the Gospel of Jesus Christ can change people. When the church becomes more committed to political change than it is to changed lives it only adds to the brokenness we are all witnessing. It is not what happens in the ballot box that will change things for the better, but what happens in our prayer closets. Believers should not sell their biblical birthright for a mess of political pottage. KINGContinued From 5Aspend so much time and effort trying to change someone with ways that hurt our influence with them, that we actually lose what we did have power over to start with. The most important part of the boundary of power is gaining wisdom, so that we dont spend time and energy where we have no power and keep our influence where we do. The very familiar Serenity Prayer offers a great explanation: God, grant me the serenity (calm and without worry, stress or disturbance) to accept the things I cannot change (have no power over), the courage (the ability to face danger, difficulty, uncertainty, or pain without being overcome by fear or being detoured from a chosen course of action) to change the things I can (that I do have power over), and the wisdom to know the difference. The Bible tells us in James 1:5 that If anyone lacks wisdom, they should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. This means that we can bring these situations to God and ask the question: Do I have power to change something in this situation, and if I do, where? When we do, He will generously give us wisdom without blaming and finding fault. Why would God do this? He wants us to have strong, healthy relationships. Because our hearts matter.

The rivalry between Fort White (1-0) and Santa Fe (1-1) used to be a yearly occurrence on the final week of the season, albeit one that was usually dominated by the Indians. But prior to last year, the two schools didnt play from 2013-2016.

The conversation of what this season can be only continues after cruising to early victories over Suwannee and Gainesville. The Tigers were reminded this week to remain humble and hungry despite all the attention. Columbia looks to put that focus and discipline to the test in its first true road contest as the Tigers gear up to take on the Buchholz Bobcats tonight Its tough to play in Gainesville, right tackle Zachary Bedenbaugh said. But I think if we stick to our assignments, well get the job done like we did last week. Columbia (2-0) has dominated the I-75 series over the last decade winning the last nine of 11 meetings but Buchholz (1-1) got the best of the Tigers in their last trip to Citizens Fields in 2016. The Bobcats edged the shorthanded Tigers, 27-23. Columbia is confident there wont be an upset this time around. The Tigers say that they havent even thought about that stunning loss during practice this week. I suspended some guys that week so it was definitely different circumstances, Columbia coach Brian Allen said of his first loss to Buchholz. We threw five interceptions [in that game]. There was a lot of things that played a role in that one loss. Its definitely a different type of environment this yearSome of [our] guys, when you look back to 2016, werent even on varsity yet. So they probably dont have a keen understanding of that ballgame. Buchholz opened its season with a 38-27 win over Eastside.

DEAR ABBY: I have a friend whos 22 and has two children, which I helped her to deliver. She is also my neighbor. Since she moved in and divorced her husband, my husband and I have watched her make bad choices over and over again, starting with the derelict men she dates to the way she gets drunk, then drives her paper route at night. She blows her money on tattoos and then asks us for food. Its become exhausting. Shes now dating another man whos obviously using her. I have a hard time not telling him off when I see him. He wont get a job and he keeps her in perpetual relationship limbo, which forces her to focus all her attention on him and neglect her children and home. What can I do? I value her so much I lose sleep. She constantly posts on social media that shes lonely and everyone always leaves her, but she gets mad at me for telling her where she keeps going wrong. Why cant she understand that shes doing this to herself? How can I help her see her errors, so she can move on from this awful phase? -CARING FRIEND IN FLORIDA DEAR CARING FRIEND: Your friend has a job. If she werent supporting her boyfriend, she would be able to support herself and her children. The more you give her, the more reliant she will become on your handouts. Take it from a professional: The most unwelcome advice is that which is unasked for, which is why she gets angry when you try to tell her what shes doing wrong. She doesnt want to hear it. The way to get someone like this to recognize her errors is to stop trying to save her from them. You cant fix whats wrong in her life -only she can do that -so step back. If you really think her children are going hungry, contact child protective services, so those kids can get the help they need. DEAR ABBY: My fiance and I are both 68. We have been engaged for a year now. When we shopped for an engagement ring, we also purchased wedding bands because the jewelry store was having a sale. Because of our ages, I have come to feel that there is no compelling reason to get married. It would be a big legal hassle, and theres no reason why we just cannot live together. He agrees. However, we have made a commitment to each other, and I call him my husband and he calls me his wife. My question is, would it be OK for us to wear the wedding bands, even though we are not legally married? I wonder if other couples have done this having made that commitment to each other. Your thoughts? -HAPPILY TOGETHER DEAR HAPPILY: No law forbids the two of you from wearing wedding rings and calling yourselves married. Others have done it. In some states, after a period of time, the arrangement would become a common-law marriage. However, before making a final decision to do this, you and your fiance should discuss it with a lawyer. There are certain guarantees and benefits to being legally wed, because spouses have rights of inheritance and decision-making in case of illness that unwed couples do not enjoy. DEAR ABBY: I am in a long-distance relationship. I live in Kansas; hes in Michigan. Because we are 720 miles apart, phone calls, text messages and Skype are vital to the health of our relationship. I make it a priority to text or call Good morning or Goodnight. Unlike me, sometimes hes consistent and sometimes not, especially on weekends. He says he falls asleep, but it continues to happen, and Im getting tired and frustrated about not being a priority. I have been as patient and nice as I can be, as well as continuing to tell him how much I love him and want our relationship to work. I would love to hear your advice. -FAITHFUL BUT FRUSTRATED GIRLFRIEND DEAR GIRLFRIEND: I know you love this man, but take a step back. You may be smothering him. Stop doing all the work in maintaining the romance and give him some space. If you do, he may realize he needs to step up and devote more energy to your relationship. Communication has to be voluntary, not mandatory. If you continue to pursue him the way you have been, you wont draw him closer; you will drive him further away. DEAR ABBY: My father is nearing the end of his life. Im an only child with no family nearby. When my mother passed away, many people reached out to me, and I know their intent was to comfort me. However, most of the time I ended up comforting them! I would try to escape by saying things like I had a task to take care of, but when people are crying hysterically on the phone or in my kitchen, they dont seem to hear. How can I politely tell people like this that Im not their therapist, and they are not comforting me? -TAKING CARE OF DAD DEAR TAKING CARE: All you need to say is you cant talk right now, and you will call them back later. Period. Then hang up. If someone is having an emotional meltdown in your kitchen, you have the right to tell the person you cant deal with it right now, youll visit with her -or him -another time, and guide them to the door. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Express yourself emotionally. Share your feelings and find out where you stand. Dont let a situation that is bothering you build into a feud when communication, understanding and solutions are whats required. A romantic gesture will enhance your personal life. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Look for an alternative if a situation isnt going according to plan. Listen to suggestions offered, and do your best to stick to triedand-true methods. A practical approach will help to ward off mistakes that can be costly. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Dont take anything or anyone for granted. Be willing to do your part, and stick to the truth to avoid being called out by someone fact-check ing. Personal improvements should include health as well as your domestic environment. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Working hand in hand with trusted individuals will help promote steady progress. Shy away from anyone exhibiting excessive tendencies or who is emotionally manipulative. Know when to say no, and surround yourself with people who are practical, moderate and efficient. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Getting all worked up over nothing will not serve you well. Before you initiate an emotional conversation with someone, get your facts straight. If you act on an assumption or hearsay, you will not only offend someone, youll damage your relationship. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A day trip or visiting old friends or relatives should be scheduled. Attending a reunion and socializing with people from different walks of life will stimulate you mentally as well as prompt you to make changes to your life and future endeavors. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Tread carefully when dealing with friends and family. Not everyone will see things your way. Someone will put demands on you or try to interfere with what you want to do. Dont let indulgent behavior be your way of dealing with negativity. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): An emotional situation will escalate quickly if you dont pull back and rethink your strategy. Focus on something you have control over, not something you dont. Be up-front and do your own thing. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): No one knows better than you when it comes to how you feel and what you want. Try not to pussyfoot around issues that need to be discussed. By avoiding the truth, you will give someone a false impression. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Find the best way to use your knowledge to bring about positive changes at work and at home. A chance to reinvent yourself will turn out to be quite prosperous. Recycle old ideas and format the journey you want to pursue. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Emotions will take over if you arent careful. Dont let anyone bait you into a discussion about something you arent ready to talk about. If you want to change something, start with yourself. A new diet, exercise routine or look is encouraged. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Youll have some interesting ideas. Discuss your plans with an expert to work out any kinks that could slow you down. Money, contracts and a change in the way you earn your living look promising.

Calmly and clearly, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney shared how once more the second-ranked Tigers will use both senior Kelly Bryant and freshman Trevor Lawrence at quarterback at Texas A&M this week. Both had good moments in a blowout win over Furman this past Saturday and both made mistakes, Swinney said. But neither gave the coaches any reason to stick them on the bench against the Aggies (1-0). We definitely will play both quarterbacks, Swinney said. Theres no doubt about that. Nothing happened to warrant not playing both those guys. Bryant, last years starter at Clemson (1-0), completed 11 of 17 passes for 132 yards and a touchdown. He also ran for a 35-yard TD. Lawrence, the 6-foot-6 strong-armed rookie, was 9-of-14 passing for 137 yards and three TDs, much to the delight of the packed house at Death Valley in a 48-7 win against Furman of the Football Championship Subdivision. Co-offensive coordinator Jeff Scott said Monday its not a two-quarterback system, just that the two quarterbacks are part of the Clemson offense. The play calls dont change depending on whos in, Scott said. Its not something he and fellow play-caller Tony Elliott consider much when piecing together the plan against Furman. Scott said he was driving home after Saturdays game when his mind flashed to Clemsons big plays and he needed check the tape to remember which quarterback was in for which. It is what it is right now, Scott said. Let em go play.

FRIDA Y, SEPTEMBER 7, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER 7B NFLRamsey clams up as Beckham nearsBy MARK LONGAssociated PressJACKSONVILLE Jacksonville Jaguars All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey was unusually quiet Thursday, three days before one of the most anticipated matchups of his NFL career. He was humble. He was focused. He was more of a team player than a look-at-me guy. He seemed somewhat out of character. But the Jaguars probably liked it after weeks of unrest surrounding their star defensive back. Ramsey screamed profanities at media members during training camp, got suspended for a week and then created a stir by calling out several quarterbacks in one interview and blasted a few more players in another. With the season opener against the New York Giants and receiver standout Odell Beckham Jr. looming, Ramsey clammed up. Looking forward to it, said Ramsey, who was added to the injury report because of ankle soreness. Looking forward to beginning the whole season with the whole team. A lot of people are going to try to make it about me and (Beckham) specifically. Thats not what its about. Football is a team game. Theres going to be 11 guys out there for us, 11 guys out there for them. Were going to have to come together and do what weve got to do to try to get a win. It wasnt what anyone expected from the outspoken Ramsey. Beckham insisted Wednesday that Ramsey wont get under his skin and there wont be a repeat of his fight with cornerback Josh Norman in 2016. The three-time All-Pro said he wont take Ramseys bait. Asked whether thats easier said than done, Ramsey declined to offer much. I dont know, he said. Again, its not about me. Its about the team. Ramsey downplayed his ability to talk trash, even though he got into a public spat with now-retired NFL receiver Steve Smith in 2016 and upset Cincinnati receiver A.J. Green so much that Green grabbed Ramsey around the neck and slammed him to the ground last year. My play is what really gets people talking, to be honest with you, and thats just extra on top, Ramsey said. Im going to be me. I dont think thats something that we need to continue to talk about week in and week in. Im going to me. Ramsey did acknowledge that hes fine with playing the role of villain. What people who dont know me think about me doesnt affect me, how I live my life, how I go about being who I am, said Ramsey, who became a father for the first time in late July. Im not going to change because somebody doesnt like me. Theres a bunch or more people in the world. Many of them will tune in Sunday to watch Ramsey line up across from Beckham, who signed a $95 million extension that made him the highest-paid receiver in the league. I think anytime you get two guys like that, that are as big of stars as they are, everybody wants to watch it, Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles said. Well get our corrections made (on the sideline) and make sure everythings set offensively for the next series and peek up there as much as possible to see whats going on with them. I know theyll both be ready and fired up. Itll be fun to watch. Ramsey surely will have a different demeanor once the game starts. And if he shuts down Beckham, he probably will be even more boisterous. After all, this is the same guy who made it clear two weeks ago that he was unapologetic about anything he said about other NFL players. He also opened camp talking about facing Beckham in the opener. Lets get this out the way right now, Ramsey said in late July after reporting to camp a few days late. He is a good receiver. We all know that. But you all know me at the same time. Yeah, hes good. But Im good, too. If you want to say hes the best at his position, Im the best at my position, so we are going to go at it. We are going to give the people a show the first game of the season. He is going to have some wins. I am going to have some wins. I just plan on having more wins. That is the plan I am going to go in there with. ... That is what you all asked for as fans of the game, as (fans of) the NFL, everybody. That is what you all asked for. We are going to give it to you, for sure. I know I am.JOSE CARLOS FAJARDO/Bay Area News Group/TNSJacksonville Jaguars Jalen Ramsey (20) tackles San Francisco 49ers Kyle Juszczyk (44) out of bounds at the one-yard line during the first quarter of their NFL game at Levis Stadium on Dec. 24, 2017 in Santa Clara, Calif. rf ntb ByBarryWilner r rfn rtb rtbtb brrr rnr brr brb n rr rrrbr rtrrrr b br rtrrbfbr r rbtrft rrrrrtrrrrtrrrr rrrr rr rrrrnrrrr r rb tt rr rrt rbtrbrb rr rr brrrtt rrrrrbrtr r rtf r tr r rrr UPSETSPE-CIAL:FALCONS,22-20 r ff ff nt bnf rfntbf rf n n rfbrbf tt f ff r f nntbf tf t ff nnf n ftff rbft r f f f f rntbf ff t ffrntbf ftff ff ft n bfntbf t bff r f f f btntbf tr n ft f n rrrrntbf rntrf t f f f frttrbf rf f f ffrbf rr ff ttfntbf tr f f frnr rr f f fff tntbf f ff f f ntbfr r n fn f bb rbrrtfrrrfr br rrrrrb rrt br r rttr rrrr r r r rrrr brbtr rb t rrbrrrrrr r rb b rfn tb rrrr r rtrrbrb r r t rrrrrb rr rtrtrrrrrrnbtrrrrrrbrrrrbrr r t brrrrrr r r r rrr t t f r bb brr r rrt brr rrrbr brbr r rbrr rr rrr rr rtbbrrr rrrtbr rrtr r rrr r TheAssociatedPressByRalphD.Russobbrrrbrrb r r rr brr rbr rrrr rtbr rfrt rbr rb rb rrrr rtrtr r brrrrbtrrrrr rbtrrf r nf frrrfrrrfrrr rrb rr rrtrr rfbbtrrrrrr rr br r rrr frrr f rbf r f f ff fbn ffntbf t tn fr tfrbf f f f t rrbf btr f f ff n bfntbfr nff f f f rntbf rffr f f ntbf t bff f rf f fn ttntbf ff bff btrr ntbf f f f r f rbf rfbf b f ff f nf rrrbf r n r nf f rffrffrnnr rbf ff f n n f ntbf rf f frrntbf rr nf f f ff f bntbf tr f tfrtr b ffbntr bbrnffrfbfbrfrttt tfn btffrrttnrtttnnbtnn NEW YORKSerena Williams reaches her 9th US Open finalSerena Williams grabbed 12 of 13 games to beat No. 19 seed Anastasija Sevastova of Latvia 6-3, 6-0 and reach her ninth final at Flushing Meadows and 31st at all Grand Slam tournaments. With one more victory, Williams will earn her seventh U.S. Open championship and her 24th major singles trophy, equaling Margaret Court for the most in tennis history. Williams already owns the mark for the most in the half-century pro fessional era; Court won some of hers against amateur competition. On Saturday, Williams will face 2017 runner-up Madison Keys, the No. 14 seed, or 20th-seeded Naomi Osaka of Japan, who were scheduled to play each other in the second semifinal.DETROITAmway founder and Magic owner dies at 92Billionaire Richard DeVos, co-founder of direct-selling giant Amway, owner of the Orlando Magic and father-in-law of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, died Thursday. He was 92. Family spokesman Nick Wasmiller says DeVos died at his western Michigan home due to complications from an infection. DeVos was born in Grand Rapids, not far from Ada, the community about 140 miles (225 kilometers) west of Detroit where he later lived and died. In 1949, he and friend Jay Van Andel took $49 and invested the modest amount into manufac turer and vitamin direct-seller Nutrilite. They became independent vitamin distributors and later used the companys per son-to-person selling approach when starting Amway in Ada with an all-purpose household cleaning product. DeVos, who served as Amways president until 1993, also was involved in the NBA, buying the Magic from a group headed by Orlando real estate developer William duPont III in 1991 for $70 million.MIAMI2 FIU football players shot, assailant at large Two FIU football players were shot Thursday afternoon, and police said they were looking for who was responsible for what they called a drive-by attack. Opa-locka (Florida) police chief James Dobson identified the players as running back Anthony Jones and offensive lineman Mershawn Miller. Jones was shot in the face and back, while Miller was shot in the arm. Both players were taken to Ryder Trauma Center, Jones getting airlifted there and Miller taken by ambulance. Dobson said the condition of both players is stable, and that the injuries were not life-threat ening. Police believe that Jones and Miller were visiting a friend in Opa-locka when someone in another car opened fire and sped away. Jones sat out last season with injury and returned to the lineup in a big way in FIUs opener, starting at running back and scoring two touchdowns in last weekends 38-28 loss to Indiana. Miller is a redshirt freshman who appeared in the Indiana game as a reserve. FIU is scheduled to play at Old Dominion on Saturday.NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa.Woods, McIlroy off to torrid start at AroniminkTiger Woods had his lowest score in an opening round in nearly 20 years and his best score on the PGA Tour since his last victory more than five years ago. With a bogey on his penultimate hole, he had an 8-under 62 in in the BMW Championship at Aronimink. And all that got him was a share of the lead with Rory McIlroy. It was the lowest score for Woods since he shot 61 in the second round of the 2013 Bridgestone Invitational, which he won by seven shots for his 79th title on the PGA Tour and 90th worldwide. It remains his last victory. Jordan Spieth couldnt keep it in play off the tee and didnt get under par until his 15th hole. He birdied three of the last four for a 67. Peter Uihlein, who only advanced to the third FedEx Cup playoff event with birdies on his last three holes on the TPC Boston last week, had a 64 to join a group that included FedEx Cup champion Justin Thomas. Associated Press25-14 defeat at Vanguard. The visiting Tigers had better luck in Week 2. Columbia steamrolled longtime rival Suwannee 49-7 for its 11th straight win in the series. The Tigers star-studded offense tallied nearly 400 yards before halftime, and was never really challenged in the contest. Were supposed to do that to Suwannee, Buchholz is a more disciplined team, wide receiver TJ Jones said. We got to go out and show what we are as a unit. Buchholz isnt athletically better than us, but they are disciplined though. Columbias high-powered offense, led by quarterback Jordan Smith, strives to get off to another hot start Friday night. And the Tigers like their chances, up against a Bobcats defense that typically runs a man-to-man coverage to defend receivers. Anytime somebody plays us man-to-man, we get goosebumps, Jones said. It was Columbias defense, though, that stole the show last week. The unit aims to build on the five-turnover performance against a veteran offense. The Bobcats are led senior quarterback Cam Orth, who beat the Tigers in his second start ever. Orth is surrounded by capable receivers, including Florida commit Trent Whittemore. Columbias defense looks to stifle the gunslinger, whos back from injury this year. Hes a pocket passer, weve seen a bunch of them over the years, Allen said. We definitely saw one at IMG. [Orth] is a pocket-passer type kid who has a very good target in Trent Whittemore. So were going to try to do some things up front to try to confuse him, and some stuff on the back end to confuse him just trying to go out and have a successful night. The Tigers know slowing down the Bobcats receiver corps could be key to a win. They got some receivers that are better than Suwannee receivers, safety Sirr Talbott said. I feel like well just do our job and take care of business. Columbia certainly wants to keep the momentum alive after this week with reigning district champion Robert E. Lee coming to Lake City on Sept. 14. The Tigers strive to turn in a complete-game performance before their pivotal meeting. I want to know if my squad can go out and compete for four quarters, Allen added. Were in a situation here, over these past few weeks, we havent played a full game as a group. Thats something you definitely have to look at. I got to make sure were keeping them conditioned for those four-quarter tests that are definitely around the corner. Weve kept them conditioned but theres nothing like a four-quarter game for repetition. Thats the one thing thats been on my mind, more than anything, being battle-tested for four quarters.INJURY REPORTColumbia will be without senior linebacker Ethan Umstead for another week as he recovers from an ankle injury. Senior safety Brandon Scott sustained an ankle injury last week and will also be sidelined for Fridays game.RANKINGSColumbia remains at No. 2 in Class 7A behind St. Thomas Aquinas in the Florida high school football poll this week.ANOTHER OFFER Columbia senior receiver TJ Jones received his 37th offer from North Carolina on Wednesday night.

8B FRIDA Y, SEPTEMBER 7, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER hour in 2013 without even telling Fort White coach Demetric Jackson. It wasnt until Keystone Heights laid the news on Jackson, who was caught by surprise. We just assumed it was a rivalry game we were going to play the last game of the season. I found out from Keystone Heights that Santa Fe was scheduling them the last game of the season so I called (Wiles) and he never returned my call, said Jackson, who has never lost to Santa Fe in his 12 years as head coach. Finally, he called and said, Yeah coach, Ive been meaning to call you. Were not going to be able to play. I was like, Why not?!And he said because we dont want to. Losing repeatedly year after year will do that to you, with Fort White leading the series 11-3. It led to a lack of a rival for Indians, although some may now argue that Suwannee has become the rival theyve needed. But things changed prior to last season under new Santa Fe coach Dock Pollard. He got on the phone with Jackson and brought the rivalry back to life sort of. There were two caveats: The game had to be early in the season. And they would no longer Battle for the Paddle. That was a decision their principal made. We wanted to do it but they didnt, Jackson said. The fact that were a smaller school and theyre a bigger school and weve been winning, that doesnt bode well for them. As long as youre winning youre going to want to play. But right now were playing, its just not for Battle for the Paddle. Although Santa Fe is in a bit of a rebuild coming off of a 1-9 season, Fort White hopes the rivalry becomes competitive and continues year in and year out. Theres plenty of history between the two teams and nobody knows that better than Fort White assistant Shea Showers, who was the head coach at Santa Fe from 2008-2010. It was a big rivalry because it was at the end of the year for both teams. It was just fun and you got to carry that for the whole year and kind of brag about it, Shower said. I hope (the rivalry returns). The kids play each other in travel basketball and all the kind of stuff so they pretty much know each other. Itll be a fun game.PREPARING FOR REIDSanta Fe is coming off of a 35-6 loss to Gainesville last week but Deron Reids efforts didnt go unnoticed. Reid rushed for 147 yards and scored the Raiders lone touchdown on a 30-yard run. Reid also splits time at quarterback with Jorgen Salazar, who spends most of his time throwing to Reid. The duo helped lead Santa Fe to 31-13 win over Newberry in the season opener. I think (Reid) hes more of a threat because hes the one that makes the plays for them, Jackson said. Even against Newberry and GHS, he was the one that if you get him space, he makes some things happen so were focused on him. (Salazar) is an okay athlete. He throws the ball probably better but he hasnt made as many plays as (Reid)   so wer e thinking about him. We played against him last year so hell be more of a threat for us going against them.ITCHING TO PLAYFort White received a defacto bye week last week under terrible circumstances when Providence receiver Tommy Waters took his own life, leading to the matchups cancelation. The time off has been gnawing at the Indians, who are still upset from their 35-19 loss to Suwannee in the season opener. No one in Fort Whites locker room is taking tonights matchup lightly, despite a 49-0 victory of Santa Fe lasts season. The Indians want to get in the win column ahead of next weeks Region 1-3A showdown with Taylor County. Im expecting a team thats fired up. Its a rival. They know they dont want to lose to Fort White, Jackson said. Weve won a number of the last few matchups we played so I think were going to get their best shot. Weve just got to go out and execute. PADDLE Continued From 1B CHRISTINA FEAGIN/Special to the ReporterJV teams come away with winsFort White junior varsity quarterback Cody Lee led the Indians to a 24-8 victory over Suwannee on Thursday. Columbias JV team also beat Buchholz 38-13. dence especially after that loss [to Edward Waters] last week. The Lady Timberwolves (2-3) took advantage of the mismatch and capitalized on a bevy of mistakes made by the reeling Lady Tigers (0-8). FGC used unearned points and a stout defensive performance, notching 58 digs, to record its second victory. It was seemingly a tune-up game for FGC, a team that will be far more challenged in this Saturdays tri-match against College of Central Florida and Eastern Florida. I would hate for us to call it a tune-up game, FGC coach Richie Tang said. I think we just wanted to make sure there were things that our kids were doing. Obviously, no knock on them, were a little bit better. We wanted our kids to be able to run a dynamic offense. I think that was important for us to do, because this weekend we will play really tough teams at Santa FeCollege of Central Florida has been ranked top-5 in the state and was previously ranked nationally, so thats what I wanted to prepare them for. Every timeout I took was to make sure they understood that we cant take this lightly because if you give a free ball to Central Florida, youre going to eat it. FGC pushed out to a 9-4 advantage on Nieuwenhuis kill in the opening set. The Lady Timberwolves never looked back as the Lady Tigers errors mounted. FGC held a comfortable lead throughout before taking the set, 25-8. Andrew College responded with a solid start in the second set, recording the games first three points. But it wasnt long before the Lady Timberwolves offense exploded for 10 straights points to take a commanding lead. Andrew College has no answer for Morrison, who anchored her team to another win in the second set, 25-11. When we had our primary kids in the second set, it looked really good, Tang said. And thats what you want to see. I think as a coach, I dont think theres ever a point where youre satisfied. Well make sure that we continue to get better in some of the things we do. We have one day to make it right [today]. We had a lot of unforced errors. I think thats what killed us last week against Edward Waters. Same thing [Thursday]. Were throwing serves in the middle of the net. We cant do that at our level of college. Against FGCs reserve players, Andrew College turned its best game of the night in the third set. Both teams tied six times before Clines kill pushed FGC ahead 11-9. The Lady Timberwolves kept the the Lady Tigers from winning their first set of the season as they managed to hold on to the slim lead for the remainder of the set. While Thursdays win came over an inferior opponent, FGC is happy to be back in the win column, especially before facing tough competition at Santa Fe Saturday. Overall its always great to win, and great to win at home, Tang said. FGC is set to play at 10 a.m. (EFSC) and 2 p.m. (CCF) in Saturdays tri-match. The biggest thing is that theyre mentally focused, from the time they get on the bus to the time their feet hit campus at Santa Fe, the second-year coach said. They need to be focused about the things they have to do. Thats really the biggest thing for us. FGCContinued From 1BMadison Brugh spikes the ball during the second set.
