By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comA man was shot in a conflict that erupted near a churchyard Monday, and investigators are on the hunt for the suspect who reportedly took off on foot, spurring the lockdown of a local elementary school. As families and children walked home from school around 3 p.m. they passed investigators scouring the grounds of Souls Harbor Church of God in Christ for clues left from the shooting. A portion of the intersection at NE Lake Drive and NE Anderson Terrace was cordoned off with crime tape while the officers used a metal detector to search for evidence in the church yard. Just outside the crime tape, a Lake City Reporter staff writer noticed 20 or so live rounds strewn across SE Anderson Terrace and called them to the attention of investigators. The ammunition appeared to be that of a 9 mm pistol. An investigator at the scene confirmed the weapon used in the shooting was a handgun. Neighborhood residents said they were unaware of the incident.

After multiple County Commission candidates and members of the public said those exact words during several open meetings, the county has approved a tentative budget with roughly $1 million in spending cuts to the general fund, public works and economic development.

From staff reportsThree reappointed to FGC board Water Voices programs set for High Springs, Lake CityThe Ichetucknee Alliances 2018 Water Voices program, Clear Choices for Clean Water, focuses on creating solutions for the problems that plague the Ichetucknee. Two programs are set for the coming weeks. The first session will be offered in Alachua County from 7-9 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 24, at the High Springs New Century Womans Club, 23674 U.S. Highway 27. The second session of the same program will be offered in Columbia County from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 2, at the Columbia County Public Library main branch, 308 NW Columbia Ave. Admission to both events is free and everyone is invited to attend. After reviewing the Ichetucknees 2016 Report Card and identifying the problems that are harming the river, Florida Springs Institute Executive Director Robert L. Knight will talk about two new efforts focused on solutions, FSIs Blue Water Audit project and his idea for an Aquifer Protection Fee. Following Knights talk, award-winning documentary filmmaker Eric Flagg will present the premiere of three new short videos, Ichetucknee YesterdayToday-Tomorrow. The videos are designed to spark discussions about different ways that citizens could show leadership for restoring the Ichetucknee River System, one element in the largest concentration of freshwater springs in the world and a vital part of North Floridas ecology, economy and environmental heritage. Audiences will learn who makes which water-related decisions in Florida and why scientists think the Ichetucknee might be the easiest spring system in the state to restore, said Ichetucknee Alliance President John Jopling. People will find out how to determine their aquifer footprints. Well explore the idea that leadership for the Ichetucknee begins at home. Were happy that one of the Alliances ideas that is presented in the videosthe idea of right crop, right place with state-funded financial incentives for farmers to plant water-friendly cropsis now being tried in a pilot program by the Suwannee River Water Management District, Jopling added. Like that idea, we hope our other ideas will spark conversations and gain traction. If we make the right choices about how were living with water now, we will make sure that our children and grandchildren can enjoy the Ichetucknee tomorrow.

backed away from a property tax hike that would have increased the millage rate from 8.015 to 8.87 to fund loans for the jail project, estimated at $30 million. On Monday, Scott provided a breakdown of where he slashed spending. Nearly $221,000 of the cuts were to the general fund, which includes the Board of County Commissioners and most county departments. The Board of County Commissioners saw $40,000 cut from capital outlay, $14,707 from personnel services and $25,000 from professional services licensed fields such as accounting, engineering, surveying and legal work. The facilities management department saw a $22,000 reduction to rentals and leases, $5,000 to operating expenses and $5,000 to repairs and maintenance. The safety department saw a $62,695 cut to personnel services and $12,400 to Other Current Expenses which can mean anything from gas to office supplies, Scott said. A total of $5,000 was cut from maintenance and repair funds for detention center facilities. Emergency communications saw a $1,000 cut to funds for operating supplies. Code enforcement saw a $5,000 cut to contractual services. For landscaping work, $20,000 was cut from repair and maintenance and $3,000 from contractual services. The Transportation Trust Fund was slashed by $184,000. A lot of people know it as public works or our road department, Scott said. Thats where all your road maintenance happens. The biggest cut in the Transportation Trust Fund was to gas expenses, which were reduced by $50,000. Next up was administration and overhead, which saw a $37,500 cut $35,000 for professional services and $2,500 for operating supplies. A total of $30,000 was cut from the transportation trusts repair and maintenance funds, followed by a $25,000 cut to concrete work and another $25,000 to roadway stabilization. The county cut $15,000 from road materials and supplies related for stormwater services. For maintenance and improvement of graded roads, expenses on operating supplies were cut by $1,500. The countys economic development fund saw a $563,300 cut. Of that, $25,000 came from slashing the advertisement budget. Another $38,300 came from paying off a debt early this fiscal year, freeing up the money set aside for the coming budget cycle. The county had set aside $500,000 in the economic development fund for early debt retirement unrelated to the jail project, but that money was repurposed for the debt service on the new detention facility. The county also took $41,898 from surplus revenue money that wasnt allocated toward any other project and put it toward the jail project.

Carrie Alexander said she attends Souls Harbor and helps with its maintenance. Around 1:30 p.m., Alexander said she drove by the church and saw vehicles, at least one a pickup truck, parked at the church when it should have been empty. I didnt feel right about it, said Alexander. Another man who lives nearby said he was outside at the time and saw first responders arrive. Public Information Officer Mike Lee said Lake City Police received calls about a shooting at 1:52 p.m. and arrived at the scene about five minutes later. He said the victim, a male, was in stable condition and was transported to UF Health Shands. Lee posted on the LCPD Facebook page a description of the suspect and the direction he reportedly took off in. When we arrived we were able to identify that the suspect had left the area on foot in the direction of Melrose Park Elementary School, said Lee. He said he was an African American male and it was thought his name was Joe or Joseph, and that he was around 5 feet 10 inches tall. The suspect was last seen wearing a black shirt, shorts and shoes walking south toward SE Ermine Ave, Lee said. The direction the man took off in prompted the lockdown of Melrose Park Elementary School for roughly 10 minutes, and security measures taken at nearby Niblack Elementary School as well. trucks blocked some of the eastbound lanes of US 90 and traffic was allowed to trickle into US 90 from State Road 247 where another police vehicle blocked lanes of traffic. The crash occurred around 11:58 a.m. The driver of the Acura, who police did not identify, was taken to Lake City Medical Center for observation, while the driver of the dump truck was unhurt. According to preliminary reports, the Acura turned in front of the dump truck. Traffic at the intersection was rerouted until 12:30 p.m. when the roadway was reopened.

Florence exploded into a potentially catastrophic Category 4 hurricane Monday as it closed in on North and South Carolina, carrying winds up to 130 mph and water that could wreak havoc over a wide stretch of the eastern United States later this week. Communities along a stretch of coastline thats vulnerable to rising sea levels due to climate change prepared to evacuate the storm, which forecasters expect to be close to Category 5 strength by Tuesday. The South Carolina governor ordered the states entire coastline to be evacuated starting at noon Tuesday and predicted that 1 million people would flee. And Virginias governor ordered a mandatory evacuation for some residents of low-lying coastal areas. The storms first effects were already apparent on barrier islands as dangerous rip currents hit beaches and seawater flowed over a state highway. For many people, the challenge could be finding a safe refuge: If Florence slows to a crawl just off the coast, it could bring torrential rains to the Appalachian mountains and as far away as West Virginia, causing flash floods, mudslides and other dangerous conditions. The storms potential path also includes half a dozen nuclear power plants, pits holding coal-ash and other industrial waste, and numerous hog farms that store animal waste in massive open-air lagoons. Airlines, including American and Southwest, have started letting passengers change travel plans that take them into the hurricanes possible path. National Hurricane Center Director Ken Graham warned that Florence was forecast to linger over the Carolinas once it reaches shore. People living well inland should prepare to lose power and endure flooding and other hazards, he warned. Its not just the coast, Graham said. When you stall a system like this and it moves real slow, some of that rainfall can extend well away from the center. A warm ocean is the fuel that powers hurricanes, and Florence will be moving over waters where temperatures are peaking near 85 degrees, hurricane specialist Eric Blake wrote. And with little wind shear to pull the storm apart, Florences hurricane wind field was expected to expand over the coming days, increasing its storm surge and inland wind threats. By 5 p.m. Monday, Florence was centered about 1,170 miles east-southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina, and moving west at 13 mph. Its center will move between Bermuda and the Bahamas on Tuesday and Wednesday and approach the coast of South Carolina or North Carolina on Thursday, the National Hurricane Center said. Two other storms were spinning in the Atlantic. Hurricane Isaac was expected to lose strength as it reaches the Caribbean, and Helene, much farther out to sea, may veer northward into the open ocean as the 2018 hurricane season reaches its peak. Associated Press Course could change, but appears headed toward the Carolinas.
I tried to pay attention to what Judge Brett Kavanaugh was saying during the hearings this week. For anyone as addicted to the Supreme Court as I am, a nomination hearing is more exciting than the return of Halleys Comet, and only slightly more common. This was one of the major reasons that I was disappointed by the Senates refusal to give Merrick Garland a fair hearing in 2016, along with the fact that it was petulant, mean-spirited, partisan, and on the razor-thin edge of unconstitutional. But Ive moved on, even if the Democrats havent. That became very clear the moment the gavel came down on Tuesday morning. Before the nominee even had a chance to say, My name is Brett, and Im a judicial conservative, a band of screaming banshees filled the air with their guttural, desperate whelps. Oh, no, I thought, did an itinerant group of Womens March alums get lost on their way to Pat Toomeys office? Alas, no, they were exactly where theyd been paid to be, these professional mourners of soon-to-be abolished reproductive rights. Knowing that Kavanaugh is a fairly sure vote to overturn Roe v. Wade if he gets on the court (I mean, yadda yadda, its precedent, yadda yadda, wink wink, yadda yadda, sorry Sen. Feinstein), the women and the men who support them had come to make life miserable for the nominee, even though they knew hed be confirmed. And the reason hell be confirmed is because Harry Reid decided to invoke the nuclear option back in 2013, when he ruled the Senate, and Democrats were in the majority. Angered by what he saw as GOP obstructionism in refusing to confirm President Obamas lower court picks, Reid decided to go all Hiroshima on his colleagues and eliminate the 60-vote super-majority that was once necessary to confirm federal judicial nominees. Now, only a simple majority of one vote is needed. And that useful filibuster? Its as dead as Kellyanne Conways chance of being hired as the newest panelist on The View, or Sarah Huckabee Sanders chance of getting any meal but takeout. But the screaming banshees arent angry at Reid and his Democratic brethren. Theyre livid that a Republican president has once again found a way to put a conservative white Christian male within arms length of the highest court in the land. Say what you will about him, Trump has been incredibly effective in reshaping the bench. His first pick, Neil Gorsuch, is in his 50s and has already placed himself next to Clarence Thomas as one of the two most conservative justices. If Kavanaugh, who is also in his 50s, is confirmed, he will be a formidable addition to the starboard side of the judicial ship. The protesters know this. They almost make you feel sorry for them with their hand-painted signs, their defiant chants, their cute little Handmaids Tale get-ups and their Chicken Little warnings. You want to tell them that it will be OK, that its possible to survive even when you feel as if your civil rights are being violated, and that adversity makes you stronger. We in the prolife movement have been getting stronger every day for the past 45 years. Now its time for the other side to enjoy that same sense of exhilaration as you fight against laws that violate your sense of humanity. Because even though I didnt get to hear much of Brett Kavanaughs comments on Roe v. Wade, I heard enough to convince me that hes not as impressed with that super-precedent as the late, great Arlen Specter. Kavanaugh made all the right rhetorical concessions, but its pretty clear that if the opportunity presents itself, he will vote to overturn our generations Dred Scott. Precedent is only binding on the people who dont make it. And Kavanaugh is interviewing for a job that will put him squarely in the position of making it. The screamers know this. There are reasons to wish that this nomination process was cleaner, fairer, not so rushed. And the spirit of Merrick Garland, ironically a good friend of Kavanaughs, hangs over the proceedings. I cant deny theres a slightly bitter taste in my mouth. But then I see the crazy people exercising their First Amendment rights between hits of Thorazine, and all that matters is the prospect of getting one vote closer to overturning Roe.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINION 9/11 at17A terrible memory turns 17 today. It was on this date in 2001 that a cadre of well-organized killers boarded four U.S. airliners and set out to bring America to her knees. They failed. Make no mistake, the pain still lingers, and not just for those lost that day. American troops are still at war in the wake of the attacks, and their continued sacrifice, though not in the daily headlines, is made fresh with frightening regularity. But America was neither beaten nor discouraged. Our nation faces new challenges, of course. Television personalities masquerading as patriots tell us we have reached a breaking point with our internal squabbling. They only aim to stir the pot, in our view, and distract from the real issues at hand. Having survived Osama bin Laden, we can surely survive fools of this sort and on both sides of the aisle. God bless our land, this day and ever.Im liking Brett Kavanaugh Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY On this date: In 1777, during the American Revolution, forces under Gen. George Washington were defeated by the British in the Battle of Brandywine. In 1814, an American fleet scored a decisive victory over the British in the Battle of Lake Champlain in the War of 1812. In 1857, the Mountain Meadows Massacre took place in present-day southern Utah as a 120-member Arkansas immigrant party was slaughtered by Mormon militiamen aided by Paiute Indians. In 1936, Boulder Dam (now Hoover Dam) began operation as President Franklin D. Roosevelt pressed a key in Washington to signal the startup of the dams first hydroelectric generator. In 1954, the Miss America pageant made its network TV debut on ABC; Miss California, Lee Meriwether, was crowned the winner. In 1962, The Beatles completed their first single for EMI, Love Me Do and P.S. I Love You, at EMI studios in London. In 2001, America faced its worst day of terrorism. Nearly 3,000 people were killed as 19 al-Qaida members hijacked four passenger jetliners. Two planes smashed into New Yorks World Trade Center, causing the twin towers to fall; one plowed into the Pentagon; and the fourth was crashed into a field in western Pennsylvania.LETTERS TO THE EDITORNo season or age limit for tennisTo the Editor: Thank you for the recognition of USTA Floridas naming me Florida Volunteer of the Month in the September 5 & 6 edition of the Lake City Reporter. It is a privilege to represent the dedicated volunteers of the Lake City Columbia Community Tennis Association, LCCCTA. The purpose of our not-for-profit corporation is to promote the development of Tennis as a means of healthful recreation and physical fitness for all Columbia County residents and to foster a sense of community between adults and children by reaching healthy, happy life styles as individuals and families, and to cooperate with United States Tennis Association and other associations, such as the Youth Tennis Foundation of Florida, in pursuit of these aims. We believe that healthful, public recreational opportunities, such as Tennis, are an integral part of the quality of life in a hard-working community such as ours. Tennis has no season or age limit. It can be enjoyed year round by children and adults, families and individuals. In the past, there were more tennis courts available to the public in Columbia County with opportunity for successful tournaments, lessons and recreational play. In recent years, courts have been neglected and even turned into a parking lot. Recently, with grants from the USTA and YTF, Cooperation with the recreation departments of Lake City, Columbia County, Richardson Community Center and Tennis Forever, we have been able to offer instruction and activities for the youth and adults of our community. Interest is high but limited space limits the number of participants and the opportunity to actually play on a full court. My competitive tennis days have passed but I sure would like to see the youth and adults of our community have a Place to enjoy the sport as I have!! Dolly Robinson LCCCTA Christine M. Flowerscowers1961@gmail.comChristine M. Flowers is a lawyer and columnist for the Philadelphia Daily News. Hard work is what gets you ahead hereTo the Editor: I find it interesting the younger you are, the less patriotic you are from recent survey. WHY? Being an old person when I went to school we were taught American history. We learned all about the good, the bad, taxes without representation, slavery, Indian Wars and the First and Second World Wars. We were the greatest nation! A republic based on the Constitution. It appears the schools do not teach what made us great. We followed the laws and our elected officials followed the constitution. Legal immigrants flowed here to become successful and brought other family here and they became successful. Today our educated public and elected officials do not like what made us the best. They want to change us to be nice, dont insult anyone, and give help to illegals coming here. Thats nice, lets help the people HERE, not the ILLEGALS. For those that are underpaid, improve your education, work harder than the others, if you dont get a pay raise change jobs where you can make more. I know it works; I have quit the same job 2 times and got pay raises to stay. Then I went to night school and got a better job. This was before everyone was nice and gave handouts. I worked or my family and I wouldnt eat. Employers in every field are searching for HARD WORKERS, not job seekers whose feelings get hurt. Irv Crowetz Lake City

6A TUESDA Y, SESE P TETE MB EE R 11, 2018 LOCAL L AA K EE CI TYTY R EE POR TETE R Dont burn your Nikes give em to the poorCHRISTIAN SERVICE CENTER PLEA Chris Walters calls it a shame to waste usable clothing.By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comResponding to nationwide outrage and acts of merchandise mutilation by those protesting a clothing companys ad campaign, a local charity director pleaded with any local boycotters to donate their Nikes to those in need. Chris Walters said he wasnt weighing in on the Nike-Colin Kaepernick debate when he took to social media. Instead, he was aiming to divert much-needed clothing to the homeless and others in need throughout the area. However, he did have something to say about the deliberate destruction of wearable clothing. When I first saw it I thought it was ridiculous, said Walters, executive director of Christian Service Center of Columbia County. You have people in need and here you are destroying what someone could use. He said his post to Facebook last week caught fire compared to others published by the charity. But, it did little by way of donations. Actually we havent had any donations, Walters said in reference to the shoes. His message was an appeal to anyone inclined to dispose of Nike-related clothing to do so by donating it to the nonprofit. There have been recent reports of individuals burning and disposing of perfectly good shoes in response to a recent chain of events, Walters message said. It continued on to say, Consider this, why not donate those shoes to a better cause? The controversy caused by Nikes 30th anniversary ad campaign, featuring the NFL player turned activist, spurred some to burn shoes and cut swoosh emblems from clothing and share the images online. The campaign continues to generate major headlines. Walters, in his fourth year as CSC executive director, said the charitys move was a gamble and one he weighed heavily before making. Should I do this or not, I didnt want to get too political, Walters said. I was curious as to if we would see anything out of it. He said their need for shoes was constant, and with a seasonal change approaching the need was multiplying. We never have enough tennis shoes, especially mens tennis shoes, Walters said. We dont specifically focus on the homeless, but we always get a lot of homeless that come through. The charity was formed in 1982 and provides several services to those in need, including food, furniture, baby items, assistance with power bills, prescriptions and even bus tickets. Walters said last year CSC helped roughly 600 homeless men and women in the area. In his four years with the organization he said he has learned something about the depth of the poverty in this county. I never, until I was actually involved in it, realized how big the need was in Columbia County, Walters said. You just have no idea how bad it is. He talked about homeless camps set up at numerous locations in and around Lake City. Its a small town with big city problems, Walters said. The CSC operates largely through the activity of its volunteers, which Walters said could number anywhere from 70-80 daily with those who have volunteered decades. Open Monday-Friday, CSC is located at 421 NW Washington St. Photos by COREY ARWOOD/Lake City ReporterChristian SS ervic e Center EE x ecutive DD ir ector Chris Walters displays C SS C s current stock of tennis shoes, which he says are always in demand, especially by the homeless. He says anyone wishing to protest Nikes decision to feature Colin Kaepernick in their 30th anniversary ad campaign should donate unwanted shoes or apparel to C SS C r ather than destroy it. Gerri Robinson, left, and EE va Varga are among more than 70 Christian SS ervic e Center volunteers who pitch in to keep the operation running. With fall coming, C SS C is gear ing up to meet the demand for cold-weather clothing, especially coats. Lake City around 9 p.m. Aug. 30, Lee said. Emergency medical responders transported the woman from the scene prior to her death, he said. LCPD had the body sent to a medical examiner and is awaiting the results, Lee said. Once we get the results from that, that will guide our investigation, he said. Further details, including the womans name, age and circumstances of her death, could not be released publicly as of Monday afternoon, Lee said. When investigators respond to a death, their first step is determining whether the circumstances surrounding it are suspicious, he said. If the death appears to have been from natural causes take an elderly hospice patient, for example investigators typically reach out to a doctor familiar with the deceased person, Lee said. On the opposite end of the spectrum, investigators may find a body lying on the middle of the sidewalk with a gunshot wound to the chest. Thats not really suspicious, thats just plainly criminal, he said. When the death is somewhere in the middle, LCPD may have to wait for a medical examiner to weigh in, Lee said. Representatives of Another Way could not be reached for comment on Monday. DEATHContinued From 1A 3 teens face charges: drugs, moreBy STEVE WILSONswilson@lakecityreporter.comThree Jacksonville teens are facing alcohol, narcotics and contributing to the delinquency of a minor charges stemming from a chance encounter with Lake City Police last week. Tucker Gombert, 18, Keaton Miller, 19 and Jacob Winters, 18, were arrested and have been charged with possession of marijuana under 20 grams, possession of drug paraphernalia, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and possession of liquor by persons under the age of 21. As of Saturday afternoon all three have been released on bond. An LCPD officer was at the S&S store on SW State Route 247 at approximately 8:20 p.m. Sept. 3 when he spotted a vehicle with three white male occupants. He could smell the marijuana, said Sergeant Keith Heston on Saturday regarding the incident, adding that homemade moonshine was also found in the vehicle.Thats how it started. Gombert Miller Winters

PREP FOOTBALLAIMING HIGHERBy BOB FERRANTEAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE Willie Taggarts dream was to be the coach at Florida State. His first games have been a nightmare. Taggarts mistake-prone Seminoles (1-1, 0-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) look to clean up nearly every area after they were overwhelmed in the opener by Virginia Tech and then needed a rally in the fourth quarter to take the lead and hold off Samford. Next up is a road game at Syracuse (2-0) on Saturday. Weve got to play cleaner, weve got to play smarter, if were going to be a championship football team like we aspire to be, Taggart said. The sample size is small, but Florida State is far from a championship-caliber team. There are concerns on offense, defense and special teams. Florida State has struggled to establish a ground game behind an injury-depleted offensive line, seen its pass defense thrashed in the first half and watched its kicker miss 3 of 4 field-goal attempts. Colorado St. (1-2) at Florida (1-1)When, TV: Saturday, 4 p.m. TV: SEC Network Betting line: UF by 20Florida vows to be much tougher after getting slapped in mouthBy MARK LONGAssociated PressGAINESVILLE Florida coach Dan Mullen wants to be clear: He never intended to call his players soft after a 27-16 loss to Kentucky. Mullen said Monday he was referring to how they played while losing to the Wildcats for the first time in more than three decades. It wasnt a challenge on their character, Mullen said Monday. Im not calling them soft people. I said our lack of toughness was in our performance. And that gets back to practice and your mindset and all that. Im not saying, You guys arent tough. Youre a bunch of softies. Im saying our performance wasnt very physical and tough. And the only way you change that is by changing the habits of what you do at practice. Mullen said repeatedly after the game Saturday that a lack of physicality was the biggest issue for Florida (1-1), which dropped its first Southeastern Conference opener since 2004. The Gators got whipped on both lines of scrimmage, allowing 303 yards rushing and failing to establish much of a ground game. They came and slapped us in the mouth, said defensive back Chauncey Gardner-NFLJaguars play to identity in win at GiantsBy MARK LONGAssociated PressJACKSONVILLE Jacksonvilles formula for success was evident in the season opener. Its relying on their strengths. Its playing to their identity. Its surely not the last time theyll win like that, either. Sure, the Jaguars would like to have done more offensively in a 20-15 victory at the New York Giants But after losing running back Leonard Fournette to a hamstring injury early, being without lead ing receiver Marqise Lee (knee) and having the starting offensive line together for first the time in a game, the team will gladly take the performance and hope to build on it heading into the home opener against New England (1-0). Everybody has a role in how were supposed to win football games, quarterback Blake Bortles said. Mine is making sure were hitting the right run plays, delivering the ball, letting guys make plays, not turning it over and keeping the wheels greased up and spinning. The Jaguars finished with 305 yards and 13 points offensively, with all of the points coming in the first half. They really struggled with Fournette in street clothes, converting one third-down play and managing just 91 yards in the second half. It didnt help that Jacksonville finished with 11 penalties for 119 yards. Coach Doug Marrone defending the play-calling Defense rises to occassion again in season opener.Struggling Seminoles see plenty of areas for improvement this weekCOLLEGE FOOTBALL COLLEGE FOOTBALL Florida St. (1-1) at Syracuse (2-0)When, TV: Saturday, 12 p.m. TV: ESPN Betting line: FSU by 3 1/2 JAGUARS continued on 6B Gators will try and rebound against Colorado State after losing to Kentucky.

Thats how quarterback Jordan Smith described the Columbia Tigers slow start on offense against Buchholz on Friday night. Smith and company found a groove after the first quarter, scoring 32 of the 39 points in a shutout victory. But the Tigers want to start faster this Friday and know they need to against District 2-7A rival Robert E. Lee, which has beaten Columbia three times in the past two seasons. We need to make better decisions, Smith said. I need to make better reads as a quarterback, wide receivers catching the ball, the offensive line blocking their assignments. Before Smith could finish his thought, receiver Bobby Fulton finished it for him. Its the little stuff, Fulton said.

Dengs one-year deal is for the minimum salary of $2.4 million for a player with his experience, according to a per son with knowledge of the contract who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team does not release terms. Deng will join former Bulls teammates Jimmy Butler, Taj Gibson and Derrick Rose in Minnesota. They all played for Thibodeau with Chicago, too.

The 21-year-old Darnold became the youngest quarterback to start a season opener since the 1970 AFLNFL merger, and he got off to an inauspicious start. Quandre Diggs intercepted his ill-advised lob down the left sideline on the first play from scrimmage and returned it 37 yards for a touchdown 20 seconds into the game. The former USC star shook off the rough start by completing 16 of 21 passes for 198 yards and two touchdowns. He helped the Jets set a franchise record for points on the road, surpassing the 47 points they scored in 1967 against the Boston Patriots, and outplayed 30-year-old Matthew Stafford. Stafford threw four interceptions one shy of his career high and left the game briefly in the third quarter after being hit from the front and back. He was mercifully taken out of the game midway through the fourth quarter and replaced by Matt Cassel with Detroit down 31. Stafford was 27 of 46 for 286 yards and a TD pass to Golden Tate early in the third quarter to tie it at 17. The Jets dominated in all phases. They scored 31 straight in the third quarter to pull away, sending Detroits fans for the exits and setting off a jolly green party in the Motor City. It was the highest-scoring third quarter in team history and trailed only the 34-point second quarter the Brett Favre-led team scored in 2008 against Arizona. Linebacker Darron Lee had two of New Yorks interceptions, including one he ran back 36 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter. Trumaine Johnson, Morris Claiborne and Jamal Adams also picked off passes in a big opener for the Jets New Jack City secondary.

LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER ADVICE & COMICS TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11 2018 3B CIPHER DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I love each other very much. But we are both so jealous we ght every day. e only time we get along is during sex and right aer. Recently, he found an email I had written when we rst got together in reply to a message I had received about becoming an escort. I didnt follow through with it, and I have never cheated. I was broke at the time, and he had just been sent back to prison. I didnt know what to do. How can I earn his trust and keep our relationship from becoming toxic? -TRYING TO MAKE IT WORK DEAR TRYING: If the only time you and your boyfriend get along is during sex or right aer, your relationship is already toxic. Rather than ght and accuse each other of indelity every day, couples in healthy relationships build each other up and support one another. Total honesty between partners is essential. If he cant believe what you tell him, there can be no love, because there is no trust. DEAR ABBY: I am a 13-yearold girl and I hate my family. I have had an eating disor der for three years, and my parents havent noticed. (It doesnt show because Im regular-sized.) I think my parents hate me. ey try to stu me into a mannequin shell that doesnt t. Its like I am a doll and not a person. I dont know what to do, and I am suicidal. But when I think about all the ambitions I have, Im able to withstand another day, even though it is hard. Please help me. -DE PRESSED TEEN IN WASHINGTON DEAR TEEN: Because you feel your parents may not take you seriously, be brave and tell a trusted teacher or counselor at school everything you have written to me, including your thoughts of suicide. Eating disorders can be very serious, and they are not always obvious. Because your feelings of depression are so strong that you sometimes feel you cant go on, you need more help than an advice columnist can give you in a letter. Please dont wait, and please let me hear from you again. DEAR ABBY: When did it become someones right to walk into a business with a pet? People walk in and never ask. Some of those animals hike their leg, and their owners giggle and never oer an apology or to clean it up. Dogs have jumped up on other customers while their owners stood there and said, Dont worry. He wont bite. e last customer came in with a full-grown German shepherd! Ive gone through training on service animals, and these are denitely not service animals. What happened to common courtesies? -TAKEN ABACK IN OKLAHOMA DEAR TAKEN ABACK: e demise of common courtesies happened right around the time when people began believing they were the exception to the rules. When ADA legislation was passed, it was so that people with disabilities would have access to things that able-bodied people take for granted. What you are experiencing is an abuse of that law by dishonest, uncar ing individuals who have no sense of shame.

PGA TOURBradley holds off Rose in playoff to win at AroniminkBy DAN GELSTONAssociated PressNEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. Keegan Bradley held off Justin Rose in a sudden-death playoff to win the rain-plagued BMW Championship on Monday for his first PGA Tour victory in six years. Though Rose was runner-up at the FedEx Cup playoff event at Aronimink, he didnt come up short in the world ranking. Rose hit No. 1 in the world and became the 22nd player to reach the top spot since the ranking began in 1986. Bradley, who shot a final round 6-under 64 to finish at 20-under par, thrust his arms toward the gray sky and drizzle in celebration and waved his family onto the 18th hole. He tossed into the air his young son, Logan, who hadnt even been born in 2012, the last time Bradley won on the tour. A lot has happened to me over these six years, Bradley said. I kind of fell of the radar there for a little while. Its tough to go from being on Ryder Cup teams, being on Presidents Cup teams to being outside the top 100 in the world. Bradley finished with his fourth career victory and first since the 2012 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. He gets a trip to Maui to start next year for the winners-only Sentry Tournament of Champions. Rose could have won in regulation but lipped out on the last hole to force the playoff. He fell short again in the playoff, missing a 5-foot par putt that would have kept him alive. The 38-year-old Rose had grown to love the suburban Philadelphia golf courses. He won the 2010 AT&T National at Aronimink and the 2013 U.S. Open at Merion. He didnt get a trophy on this trip. But a No. 1 ranking will do. Rose, who overtook Dustin Johnson, joins Nick Faldo, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald as the only Englishmen to reach No. 1. Im delighted to be world No. 1, Rose said. Boyhood dreams, you know what I mean? Rose trails Bryson DeChambeau, who won the first two playoff events, in the FedEx Cup standings. It was amazing play even finished Monday after rain soaked the course overnight and pushed up tee times. But it rained only lightly and the players had few complaints about the condition of the course, even if the walking paths became a muddy, soggy mess for the gallery. As usual, it crowded around Tiger Woods. Woods caused some more noise hes been doing that a lot in recent months before the largest galleries at every course and got within one shot of the lead when he made birdie on No. 9 to go out in 31. But he missed the green on the 10th and made bogey. He found a bunker on the par-3 14th for another bogey. And this was the kind of day when more than one mistake was going to be costly. Woods wound up with a 65. By MICHAEL MAROTAssociated PressINDIANAPOLIS First, Brad Keselowski figured out the secret to restarting at the Brickyard 400. Then he safely and strategically bumped his way into the lead and sped to the finish line. One year after settling for second in a chaotic, crash-marred race last year, Keselowski redeemed himself by earning his second straight major win and finally giving team owner Roger Penske the elusive Brickyard win. The 2010 Cup champion got past race leader Denny Hamlin on the secondto-last lap and beat Erik Jones to the finish line by 0.904 seconds. Hamlin finished third. Last year, I lost this race almost the exact same way. To bring it home this way, after messing up last year, is just incredible, Keselowski said. We were hoping this would be No. 500 and the Brickyard, but thats all right. Penske certainly wont be complaining about getting win No. 499 on the same historic 2.5-mile oval where he has won a record 17 Indianapolis 500 crowns. His first win 25 Cup tries at his favorite racing venue came on one of the rare days he wasnt actually attending in the pits for the rain-delayed race. But Penske now joins Chip Ganassi as the only owners to win the Indy double in the same season. Will Power captured his first 500 win in May, while Dario Franchitti and Jamie McMurray both won at the Brickyard in 2010 for Ganassi. The timing couldnt be better for Keselowski. He heads into the first round of the playoffs with momentum following wins at the Southern 500 and the Brickyard. And he earned this one the hard way. He stayed close off the final restart with three laps to go, then quickly chased down Hamlin, running side by side with the race leader briefly on Lap 159. At one point, the cars touched but both drivers maintained control and Keselowski made the decisive move in the front straightaway just as the white flag started to come out. Nobody got close again. Not having guys in the back wreck, Hamlin said when asked what could have gone differently, referring to the late crash involving Landon Cassill and Jeffrey Earnhardt. That allowed all the guys who take tires to come back up there at the end. It happens sometimes. Hamlins consolation prize will be joining Keselowski and Jones in the first round of the playoffs next week. Seven-time Cup champion Jimmie Johnson and Alex Bowman captured the final two open playoff spots in the 10-race sprint to the championship. Kurt Busch clinched the regular-season title with an eighth-place finish in the No. 18 Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing. e crowd remained sparse for the rare weekday race.AUTO RACINGBrad Keselowski makes it a Penske sweep at Indianapolis
6B TUESDA Y, SEPTEMBER 11, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER Johnson, who incorrectly predicted a 32nd consecutive victory in the series. We are going to respond. Trust me, we are going to respond. The Gators host Colorado State (1-2) on Saturday. Its a fitting matchup considering Florida is in this position partly because the school hired Jim McElwain away from the Rams in December 2014. McElwain brought two assistants with him from Fort Collins, Colorado, with the first one being strength and conditioning coordinator Mike Kent. Players, athletic director Scott Stricklin and even McElwain blamed Kent for the teams struggles last season, saying Kent failed to develop an adequate weightlifting program. The Gators spent the last six months raving about new strength coach Nick Savage, nd they expected so see instant results this fall. But Kentucky proved Florida still has some room for growth in the trenches. Change takes time, Mullen cautioned. If you dont like how things are, you got to change. Well, change is uncomfortable. However you want to change is uncomfortable because youre kind of used to this way and Im used to it and I cant do it how Im used to doing it. Mullen plans to address the teams issues with tougher, more physical practices. The Gators would like to quick turnaround, especially since the Rams beat another SEC opponent, Arkansas, by seven points last week. It comes from an internal drive, Mullen said. I mean, for us to be successful it has to come internally. I can tell if its fake. When it is fake, youll know. ... Sometimes, unfortunately, you might not know until Saturday. Ive learned that lesson as a head coach. You think, Boy, this teams saying and doing the right things. And then you get punched in the nose and we reacted a little bit differently than what we were saying and how we were pretending to act during the week when reality hit us right in the face. Florida will pay Colorado State $2 million to make the trip to the Swamp. The arrangement was part of a $7 million buyout to lure McElwain away from the Rams. McElwain agreed to pay Colorado State $2 million, with Florida chipping in $3 million and adding the payday game. McElwain and Florida parted ways last October with the coach agreeing to a $7.5 million buyout. No one expected the coach to be gone by the time his former team rolled into town for the McElwain Bowl. Ill be honest. I look at who we got to play and lets go find a way to go play them, Mullen said. So I never really thought of it that way. For Mullen, the week is all about how his players respond. I want to see now that we got punched in the face with a little bit of adversity how we handle that aspect, he said. Are we still taking the steps forward necessary to be successful? NOTES: Mullen confirmed that cornerback Marco Wilson will miss the rest of the season with a torn ligament in his left knee. ... Mullen said running back Adarius Lemons has left the team but will remain in school to maintain his eligibility before transferring. ... Mullen expects linebacker David Reese and cornerback C.J. McWilliams to return from injuries against Colorado State. Florida State was expected to have some growing pains with a new coaching staff but the aches have been more than anticipated. The Seminoles must prepare for Syracuse, which has scored 117 points in wins over Western Michigan and Wagner. While the Seminoles are 10-1 all-time against Syracuse, including eight wins by double figures, it shapes up to be a pivotal division matchup. At the start of the season people circled (the game) as probably we dont have a very good chance of being successful, Syracuse coach Dino Babers said. Its going to be a tough task, but we welcome the opportunity to see how we can do. The Seminoles are averaging 390 yards of total offense, which is tied for 87th nationally, and the Seminoles 3.62 yards per rush ranks them 101st in the FBS. Injuries have made the Seminoles growth difficult. Coaches frequently have been forced to move players from guard to tackle. But no matter who has been blocking, Florida State has had breakdowns up front that contributed to six sacks and 20 tackles for loss. Sophomore tailback Cam Akers had an 85-yard run against the Hokies but just 73 yards on his 27 other carries over two games. Weve got a lot of guys going in and out and its hard to get a rhythm, Taggart said. So is not converting on third down situations. Florida State is converting just 9 of 30 thirddown conversions, ranking 111st out of 128 FBS programs. Many of the problems stem from not getting in good position on first or second down. Florida State faced thirdand-6 or longer on 19 situations in two games. Taggart hasnt been able to get his up-tempo offense rolling simply because they cant consistently move the chains. We all can see offensively were not where we need it to be, Taggart said. A lot of it is gaining yardage on certain downs. When you get it you can continue to go fast. While the offense has struggled, the defense hasnt exactly been stellar. Florida State allowed Samfords Devlin Hodges to throw for 475 yards on Saturday, which was the most against the Seminoles since Arizona State had 532 passing yards in 1984. I knew early on we was playing too soft, some guys, and we werent getting to the quarterback, Taggart said. (Hodges) did a good job getting it out of his hands and got us beat a couple times with the deep ball. There has been one silver lining on defense. The Seminoles have adjusted well after halftime, allowing just a touchdown and a field goal on 14 combined second-half drives. Special teams have also not consistently played well either. The most noticeable special teams mistake was a Virginia Tech blocked punt that was returned three yards for a touchdown. But Ricky Aguayo, who made 18 of 21 field-goal attempts in 2017, has already missed three in two games (32, 40 and 42 yards). Monday, saying the team didnt get conservative. I dont know if that was the way we felt, he said. It might have been the way it looked. ... I think you have to be able to adjust, depending on what goes on in the game. Marrone said Fournettes injury is considered minor, but couldnt guarantee he would be ready to play against the Patriots in a rematch of last seasons AFC title game. If he is ready to go, we will ease him back in there, Marrone said. We will see how he feels. I think a lot of it depends on that. Bortles completed 18 of 33 passes for 176 yards, with a touchdown and an interception. The only thing I ask of Blake is one thing: I want to win the game, Marrone said. I dont really ask him to do a lot of other things. We want to make sure we dont turn the ball over, but we talk about that to everybody. Thats just not him. He happens to get that speech because hes one of many people who touch the ball. All were looking for out of him is to win football games. Jacksonvilles defense won this one. The unit held the Giants to a lone touchdown rookie Saquon Barkleys 68-yard TD run in the fourth quarter and scored the decisive points when Abry Jones tipped a pass at the line of scrimmage that linebacker Myles Jack caught and returned for a 32-yard score Thats the way we like to do it, Jack said. We feel like were so talented on defense that we have defensive backs who can score, linebackers who can score and even defensive linemen who can create stripsack fumbles and score. We dont put any pressure on the offense. If the offense scores, thats even more onus on us. We try to create points. The Jaguars scored eight touchdowns on defense in 2017, including one in the postseason. Those were key to developing the teams personality, which remains intact this season. Thats just defense being defense and making plays, linebacker Telvin Smith said. FSU Continued From 1B GATORS Continued From 1B JAGUARS Continued From 1BWeve got to emphasize all the little stuff. All the little stuff counts. Its going to count this week. Smith pointed to a few instances Friday night that bothered him against Buchholz, especially after watching film on Monday. Besides his one interception, Smith overthrew TJ Jones for a touchdown, admitted he took off from the pocket too quickly when he had more time to throw and at times missed some reads on certain routes. There were also drops by receivers but Smith doesnt want to hear it. He wants to be perfect, even when his team is up 39-0. Thats an attribute any coach loves. The conversation for me is stay calm and collected. You dont have to do anything extra, Columbia head coach Brian Allen said. Just do whats in the system and the offense will go. Its definitely interesting when you put up 32 points and the offense sputtered. But I thought they were able to settle in and come out and play good second-half football. If 32 isnt enough to win a football game then weve got problems somewhere else. I think its just the expectation of these guys right now in themselves, which is a good thing. Weve just got to make sure were fixing the things that are on tape where theres a level of disappointment at the conclusion of the night. The Tigers dont want disappointment again on Friday. Robert E. Lee defeated Columbia 48-28 last season in Jacksonville and two times the year before 28-7 in the regular season and then 43-7 in the playoffs. Columbia is desperate for revenge. Fulton even called Fridays contest bigger than just a game. Theres a lot riding in the matchup. The winner has won the district the past three seasons. I dont even want to go to school this week. Im ready for it to be 7:30 on Friday so we can come out and play, Fulton said. Theyve beaten us three times in the last two years and we havent been within 20 points of their score each time. Theyre going to try and put 50 on us. Weve just got to come out and play how we play and we can easily put 50 on them.YOUVE GOT MAILSmith received offers from Georgia Southern, Chattanooga and FAMU in the spring but more colleges are starting to put their eyes on the junior prospect. Although he hasnt received any more offers yet, schools have been sending him mail on a regular basis. Allen says there were at least five letters for Smith on Monday. Obviously the buzz is out there that theres this kid at Columbia so theyre getting him on the radar, Allen said. Mail doesnt mean a whole lot but mail when you havent been getting mail means that your name is getting out therewhen you have a kid that may not have gotten as much interest in the spring but now hes the full-time starter and hes doing these things, youll see him start to pick up more as we get towards the end of the season and as he goes to camps in the offseason. When spring rolls around, thats when youll start seeing Jordan start taking off a lot more than he is.INJURY REPORTColumbia linebackers Ethan Umstead and Marlon Pollock as well as safety Brandon Scott are all questionable for Fridays game against Robert E. Lee. All three are dealing with ankle injuries, with Umsteads injury lingering from a fractured ankle over the summer. Allen says all three will be gametime decisions but is hopeful all will play. This is one of those games you dont want to miss for anything, Allen said. Although theyre game-time decisions, Im expecting those guys to be back ready to go for this type of ball game. These are the ones that make you district champions and hosting the first round. You want all your bullets loaded in this type of game.PREP ROUNDUPColumbias girls golf team rolled in a tri-match on Monday, combining for a 191 to defeat Creekside (223) and Oakleaf (284) at Julington Creek. Tiara Carter led the Lady Tigers again, shooting a 42 to take home medalist honors. Erika Lloyd was right behind her with a 46, followed by Reece Chasteen with a 50 and Emma Ward with a 53. Columbias boys golf team fell to Fleming Island 152-166 on the road Monday. Lance Minson was a co-medalist with a 36 to lead the Tigers.
