City officials held a public conference call with engineer Jason Burkett of Orlandobased firm Tetra Tech, asking Burkett for a breakdown of the structural problems he uncovered during an inspection and how he arrived at his repair estimate of between $1.4 million and $3 million. The building probably isnt going to collapse overnight on its own, Burkett said, but the next storm with winds approaching or exceeding roughly 50 miles per hour should raise a red flag. That would start to get to the point where I would be concerned, Burkett said. Fifty mph gust could do some damage, says structural engineer. PLAYING POSSUM BUT FOR A GOOD CAUSE Twin focus of OLeno event is wildlife, literacy.By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comA no-name opossum visited OLeno State Park over the weekend to teach kids and grown ups alike about North Americas superlative marsupial and how to help wildlife in need of rescue. Sunrise Wildlife Rehabilitation, of High Springs, was among the main attractions to draw crowds to the Literacy Day event held at OLeno State Park Saturday. The event was organized by Friends Of OLeno, Inc., a High Springs based auxiliary support group of the park. Those who brought new or used books were granted free access to the park, and tables of books were set out to promote early childhood reading. Friends of OLeno Inc., president Ed Bisch described Saturday as, An event to kind of establish reading for younger children to get them more familiar with books by giving them books that theyd like to see or to read. Part of the proceeds from the book donations were designated to go to Gentle Carousel Miniature Therapy Horses, some of which made an appearance later that day. A volunteer with Sunrise Wildlife Rehabilitation, Nan Soistman, handled the Virginia opossum, who among the organizations rank and file educational animals has yet to be named. As our mission and our passion has evolved we have found that education is a large part, if not fifty-fifty, of our organization, Soistman said.

By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comAn ex-Branford High student faces a charge of sexual battery after a rumored video of sex with an intoxicated underage female student, a Suwannee County Sheriffs Office report states. Theodore Edward Akers, 16, is the second person to be charged in connection with reports of coerced sex with underage girls from the school. Austin Cole Walden, 18, of Mayo, also faces a sexual battery charge when he is returned to Suwannee County from Alachua County Juvenile Detention on an unrelated charge, Suwannee County Sheriff Sam St. John said. Akers and Walden both had sex with an intoxicated underage female in a truck, while a third person recorded the incident, later sharing it on social media, SCSO reports state. Akers faces one count of sexual battery on a victim 12 years old or older with no physical force or damage, according to the SCSO report of an incident in late April. (Akers) did have sexual intercourse with a fifteen year old juvenile. He was sixteen years of age at the time. The fifteen year old was under the influence of alcohol and marijuana at the time, the SCSO probable cause statement said. Akers withdrew from Branford High the day after his questioning by a Suwannee County Sheriffs investigator on the matter, an SCSO report states. It is not clear where Walden is, or was, enrolled. An SCSO report indicated he was a student at BHS, but the principal of the school told the Lake City Reporter he was not, and high school enrollment data is not a matter of public record. In at least two instances of victim testimony, Akers appears with Walden at the time of an alleged rape involving separate underage females from April through May. In one account, Akers drove a vehicle while Walden allegedly pinned down and forced himself on a female in the back seat, according to the victim who claimed she was then raped by Walden. An SCSO report also states that Akers admitted to sex with a 15-year-old, and it is not clear if the act was consensual or not based on three subjects in a vehicle clearly attempting to persuade the female subject to engage while a video is being produced and while said female is under the influence of alcohol and marijuana.

Soistman said they plan to incorporate another species in their presentations as well. Were adding a barn owl in 2019 that we hope will be able to fly glove to glove at the programs, Soistman said. She said Sunrise was contacted by those across North and Central Florida with injured and orphaned wildlife. They recently helped a woman on a call from Eustis with a maimed adolescent gopher tortoise, she said. The OLeno opossum was a rehab pickup turned resident after it was learned he had a rare health condition that prevented his release back into the wild. He strutted along the pull out table out from his pin under the SWR tent. Soistman tugged his thick tail when he ventured too far in any direction. Those who chose to pet the opossum were quickly ordered to steer clear of his face as he might bite, but were told it was fine to pet his back and many gladly took her up on the offer with no incident. Information on Sunrise Wildlife Rehabilitation can be found at, or by calling (352) 222-2239. Friends of OLeno has provided support to the park and developed its various exhibits, like the historic grist mill display, for three decades since 1988. We provide a lot of the materials and equipment and things like stuff the state wont buy, or cant buy, Bisch said. We do a lot of events. They wont tell me nothing about my son, she said. For all I know, he could be laying on the floor dead and they aint told me. And with no one telling me nothing, thatll be the first thing coming to your mind. At least four inmates were injured in a fight between gangs at CCI Thursday, the Miami Herald reported. Inmates armed with shanks attacked one another, leading to several injured prisoners but no hurt corrections officers, wrote Miami Herald reporter Julie K. Brown. Injured inmates were flown to hospitals by helicopter, Brown reported. Russell said she got a phone call around 2 a.m. Friday from someone she knows in Gainesville, who was at UF Health Shands for an unrelated reason when she thought she spotted Miller. She said it looked like she seen him going by on a stretcher, Russell said. My heart felt like it wanted to jump out of my chest. Russell said shes called everyone from hospital staff to the CCI warden to state Department of Corrections officials in Tallahassee. I got two pages of phone numbers, she said. The only thing she knows is that her son got stabbed in the neck, Russell said. One CCI staff member told her that Miller was in a dormitory, but another said he was out of the facility for medical reasons, Russell said. They told me hes been injured, but no information, she said. Said they cant give no information until the investigation is over. DOC officials in Tallahassee just gave her the run-around, Russell said. Theyve been telling me to call back at this time, call back at that time, she said. Hospital staff said they could not release information about an inmate patient, Russell added. Miller was incarcerated at CCI in December 2015 for a life sentence on a second-degree murder charge, DOC records show. Miller fatally shot his cousin, Justin Russell, at a family gathering in 2014, the Orlando Sentinel reported. Miller didnt recognize the man as his cousin, Kemisha Russell said. She said her son and his cousin got into an argument over the disappearance of her brother, Xavier Tarrand, who is still missing. Kemisha Russell thought for a moment about what shed tell her son if she could pass along a message through a newspaper story. Tell him that I love him, she said. And no matter what, Im going to stick by him until the end. Prison officials cannot confirm an inmates involvement in an altercation or provide any health information due to federal law, DOC wrote in a response to a records inquiry from the Lake City Reporter. DOCContinued From 1A LITERACYContinued From 1A Suspect jailed for street-corner gun playBy COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comA suspect in one of three gun-related crimes was caught by Lake City Police over the weekend and awaits a court appearance behind bars with no bond. Charles Leonard Ponds, 38, of Lake City, was arrested Saturday shortly before 4 p.m., LCPD Public Information Officer Mike Lee said. Ponds allegedly opened fire on a city street corner during an argument last week. No one was hurt. Outside the time and date, details of his arrest remain unavailable. Most of the circumstances surrounding his arrest are not available to be released, Lee said. Lee said Ponds was arrested, While investigating a separate crime, which is not yet able to be discussed. Ponds was booked into Columbia County Jail Saturday on three previous charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon and probation violation. Lee said he believed Ponds was arrested without incident, and he was found as a matter of police being in the right place at the right time while investigating another matter. He said Ponds has not been found to be connected to last weeks other two shooting incidents that sent two men to local hospitals with gunshot wounds. Ponds, of the 500 block of NE Leon St., was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon by police in connection to a Wednesday morning incident. Two individuals narrowly escaped harm at the intersection of NE Escambia St. and NE Calhoun Avenue after an argument erupted and Ponds pulled a gun, an LCPD press release said. Lee said calls were made to dispatchers around 10:40 a.m. of shots fired in the area. When officers arrived they found a man and woman who said they had been in a verbal altercation with Ponds before he opened fire. As they ran from Ponds, he fired several shots ... none hit the victims as they fled the area, the release said. After officers gathered testimony from those at the scene Ponds was eventually identified as the suspect, the release said. Florida Department of Corrections records show Ponds is on active felony probation through June 2021 for theft and forgery charges from May. Columbia County Jail records show Ponds has been behind bars all but two years since 2010, and was most recently booked into jail May 25 on grand theft, counterfeit and forgery charges.

Theyve got to watch him every minute, deceive him, disobey him, control him through hook and crook, whatever it takes, and you know what I am talking about. Top people in the administration are busily thwarting what they see as the ignorant, narcissistic impulses of President Donald Trump. As much has been asserted in a Bob Woodward book and an anonymous op-ed in The New York Times. The thing is, there are lots of Democrats, including past presidents, whose need for surrounding watchdogs at least equal his, and look, in the meantime, at the good he has done. He is giving us judges who think the Constitution is not that bad after all. He is wiping out the Islamic State. He has also done an enormous favor for the country through a tax reform plan that has wondrously excited the economy. New jobs are opening up all over, and unemployment is way, way down. Stagnant wages? They are getting out of bed. Small-business confidence is the highest ever measured and consumer confidence is way up there, too. Manufacturers are suddenly manufacturing like crazy, but theyre desperate for more skilled workers and Trump has a training plan. Median family income is starting to look American again, and former President Barack Obama says excuse me as he takes the credit for all of this. Keep the laughter down, please. What he did with higher taxes and a record number of major regulations was to put handcuffs and a chain and ball on the economy, giving us the slowest recovery since World War II, and what Trump did was unlock those handcuffs and hack that chain in half. Of course, he would not have had to if Obama had been more carefully kept in check by prideful, nervously alert aides and top officials. Maybe, if shrewd and sufficiently dishonest, they could also have kept him from a unilaterally executed Clean Power Plan that would have unconstitutionally wiped out state laws. Perhaps they would have prevented his spying on reporters and threatening them with jail while his administration also set a record for denying complete access to requested government material under the Freedom of Information Act. Possibly they could have waltzed him away from rotten international deals that should have been treaties requiring congressional approval. Obama is smart, charming and sophisticated, but also the kind of New Age thinker believing you can trust evil not to be evil and then open doors for the Islamic State, for instance, or make a reckless bargain on nuclear weapons with Iran. But wait, I do not really believe its OK to unconstitutionally and regularly undermine presidential decisions. Talk back, fight back, but do it to his face. If all of that does not work and you think Trump is unfit for office, resign and say so publicly, or get together with others to try the 25th Amendment that would still require a two-thirds vote of the House and Senate to keep Trump out of power. You might also consider that, while Trumps tweets and blather are frightening, it hardly means no other president ever made worse mistakes. Franklin Delano Roosevelt, for instance, put American citizens in internment camps because of their national origins and turned his back on Jews seeking asylum from Hitler. You could also research Woodrow Wilsons assaults on free speech. Moving to the present, you might want to look at the Democrats and their childish, rude play during Senate hearings on a new Supreme Court justice. Of course, in addition to possible cheaters in Trumps inner circle, we have other officials in the Justice Department and intelligence agencies who seem to have skirted the law in their efforts to get him impeached. This could be worse for the nation than Russian collusion.

This mission will be accomplished through the teamwork of professionals dedicated to truth, integrity and hard work. Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman ANOTHER VIEW We need facts on Cuba attackLast week The New York Times jolted Washingtons political class with an opinion article by an anonymous senior White House official who asserted that many of President Donald Trumps top advisers are actually working to undermine his policies, which they consider irresponsible, immature and potentially harmful to national security. The piece raised several serious questions about Trumps fitness for office, the functioning of his administration, whether loyalty to him or to the country is more important and whether bureaucrats should impose their judgment over that of the peoples elected officials. But after considering recent events in Cuba, perhaps that article takes on an ominous new tone. A year ago, after months of complaints by its staff, the State Department recalled from Havana all nonessential personnel, including family members. The department did so after a sonic attack of unknown origin made at least 25 American diplomats or their relatives sick. The Americans reported symptoms like cognitive impairment, vertigo, sleeplessness, persistent headaches, hearing loss and tinnitus. America also expelled 15 Cuban diplomats, despite Cubas denial of knowledge or involvement in the alleged attack. The Cold War with Floridas closest foreign neighbor, it seemed, was back on. Then, earlier this month the Times reported that doctors who had examined the diplomats concluded that microwave blasts were a main suspect in the illnesses. The State Department and the FBI declined to affirm the theory. But Allen Frye, a scientist who first uncovered the effect of microwave beams on the brain in the 1960s, told the Times it was possible that Cubans aligned with Russia ... might have launched microwave strikes in attempts to undermine developing ties between Cuba and the United States. Last week, Dr. Douglas Smith, who headed the medical team that evaluated the diplomats, walked back the findings. He told ABC News that microwaves were on the list, but we havent determined it is the source. Subsequently, The Washington Post, reporting on a congressional hearing about the Cuban incident, cited two experts who rejected the microwave theory. Microwave weapons is (sic) the closest equivalent in science to fake news, Alberto Espay, a neurologist at the University of Cincinnati, told the Post. Yet, the theory wont die. Trump has hardened Americas position on Cuba, reversing the softening implemented by President Barack Obama. Yet Trump has been criticized for being soft on Russia and Putin, although U.S. policy has been tougher than Trumps rhetoric. The State Department, including this week, has insisted that its position on the Cuban incident has not changed and that the investigation continues, the Herald reported. Spokeswoman Heather Nauert urged reporters to be very skeptical of NBCs story. Someone in Washington seems itching for a fight with Russia, and its not Trump. So, we need to know whose agenda is at work here, especially if we now witness calls for ratcheting up Americas belligerence toward Russia. Unfortunately, by not identifying its sources, NBC refused to shed light on that. We need the truth, and fast.Trumps in-house watchdogs Panama City News HeraldNew tool can help assess teen suicide riskA smart new mental-health survey and intervention program at a number of middle schools in King County, Washington, promises to help detect and prevent teen substance abuse as well as tease out feelings of anxiety or suicidal thoughts. The program, funded by the voter-approved initiative Best Starts for Kids and the Mental Illness and Drug Dependency Levy, is expected to reach as many as 35,000 students across the county in a dozen school districts over the next three years. It is a demonstration of good teen mental-health services as well as a stark example of how extra tax money can help school districts do more than the basics for their students. Over the next three years, $12.6 million in local tax dollars beyond regular school budgets will pay for the program in Auburn, Bellevue, Highline, Kent, Lake Washington, Northshore, Seattle, Skykomish, Snoqualmie Valley, Tahoma, Tukwila and Vashon Island school districts. Once this promising program is tried and analyzed, the state should consider expanding it to reach every middle school. The goals include decreasing substance abuse and self harm, and increasing positive student connections to school. Mental-health counselors from all 12 districts are meeting next week for training in how to interview students flagged for additional help by the confidential online survey. This fall, after informing families, the districts will be rolling out the program school-by-school. Based on a short list of questions, students may be identified as needing more help getting integrated into school life or perhaps needing counseling for depression or anxiety. This new program is an impressive partnership between public, private and nonprofit organizations. The Check Yourself Tool was developed by researchers at Seattle Childrens Hospital and the University of Washington. Community-based nonprofit organizations like Youth Eastside Services in Bellevue and Kirkland and Navos in Seattle and Burien will provide the follow-up counseling. The brief survey, which will take less than 10 minutes to complete, asks a series of questions covering relationships, substance abuse, anxiety, suicidal thoughts and safety at home and at school. The screening will connect students with services that are already available in their schools and in some cases may uncover a child who is in need of immediate intervention. In the 2016 statewide Healthy Youth Survey, about 17 percent of 8th graders said they had considered suicide, while 8 percent had attempted suicide during the previous 12 months. Those statistics should shock us all. About 8 percent of 8th graders reported that they use alcohol, 6 percent say they had used marijuana and 5 percent reported using prescription drugs not prescribed to them. The numbers associated with alcohol use have decreased over time, but other drug use has remained steady. Matt Gillingham, director of student services at the Lake Washington School District, says in most cases students suffering from depression or anxiety wont externalize those feelings until high school, but mental-health support in middle school could help redirect them toward healthy behaviors. This program highlights how precious tax dollars can be used for the good of children and community.

by underage girls around 15 years of age were leveled against Walden, SCSO reports show. Despite being 17 at the time most alleged offenses were committed, he could be tried as an adult, St John said. Reports show alleged incidents involving Akers mostly occurred late last school year, and began to emerge early this school year after interviews were conducted at BHS by law enforcement officers. At least three deputies, a school resource officer and investigators, collected testimony, and electronic evidence as the same names began to arise. Case files show female students started speaking up after SCSO investigators began looking into rumors of a video of an April incident allegedly involving Akers. Reports were made to school resource officers by way of a guidance counselor in early May. In an August interview, a victim spoke with an investigator, who wrote in a report, this was a routine occurrence with the group of male subjects and various girls. The city removed three load-bearing interior walls in the 1980s, replacing them with steel beams. Steel beams are fine for holding vertical weight, Burkett said, but they provide no horizontal support against severe storms. The other main issue with City Hall is the deteriorating facade, particularly loose bricks that can fall on pedestrians or get torn off in a storm. Strong winds can remove a small portion of the building, Burkett said. The loose bricks can feasibly be secured for around $50,000, Burkett said, not including other recommended facade repairs. Fixing the lack of internal structural support is much messier, Burkett said. Youre getting into office spaces, youre tearing up ceilings, he said. In a recent report to city officials, Tetra Tech warned the interior retrofitting will likely come with complications and is likely to trigger other miscellaneous interior renovations. Thats where most of the unknowns are going to be found, Burkett said. The total cost of the recommended repairs will likely be somewhere in the middle-to-upper portion of the $1.4 million to $3 million range, Burkett said. City Manager Joe Helfenberger said hell get a price tag for the shortterm work of securing the exterior bricks. And it buys us some time to figure out a longterm solution, he said. An alternative to going through with the repairs is selling the building and constructing a new City Hall, Helfenberger said. If the city is willing to downsize, which could also reduce energy costs, a new headquarters might end up being cheaper than the repairs, he said. The current City Hall already has more space than is necessary, Helfenberger said. Youve got under utilization of the building, he said. The city could sell the old building, or raze it and turn the space into a paid-parking lot that could generate between $200,000 and $300,000 per year in revenue, Helfenberger said. I will get estimates for short-term and long-term options, he said. During a regular council meeting after the workshop, the city gave final approval for the upcoming fiscal years budget. The property tax rate will stay at the current level of 4.9 mills. 6A TUESDA Y, SESE P TETE MB EE R 18, 2018 LOCAL L AA K EE CI TYTY R EE POR TETE R OCTOBER 19 20 2018r ZAC BROWN BANDLITTLE BIG TOWN rfrr rf nt Needed: New homes TT he Pet SS mar t Charities National AA doption W eekend was held Friday through SS unda y in Lake City.

FWHS Lady Indians power past EHS Lady Rams in first home win of the year.By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE Fueled by the cheers of friends and family, the Lady Indians werent going to be denied on their floor Monday night. Fort White dominated each set and took advantage of mistakes committed by Eastside during the non-district matchup. Lady Indians outside hitter Andrea Steedley recorded a game-high 22 digs and her sister Rachael Steedley tallied 33 assists as Fort White cruised to a straight set win (25-19, 25-23, 25-14) over Eastside. Despite a nail-biter second set, the tribe was in control throughout, using strong defensive play to seal the teams first home win. It feels really good, middle hitter Paige Dinges, who tallied eight kills, said. It gives us some more confidence. The Lady Indians dynamic offense was on display against the Lady Rams as they regularly went on scoring runs Monday. Fort White (2-10) was able to find a groove while Eastside (1-9) had trouble stringing together points. The tiwahe defense was stout for most of the night, allowing Fort White to snap a three-game losing streak. They did well and worked hard, Fort White coach Deanna Conner said. I think the difference was weve been getting used to playing smarter. They wanted to volley a little bit more [Monday] night which [worked]. They just got to keep thinking and looking for the right plays. Back-to-back aces from Dinges early in the opening set helped Fort White grab the advantage. The Lady Indians never lost the lead again as they fended off the Lady Rams for the remainder. Eastside managed to cut the deficit to five points late but it wasnt enough as Fort White closed the door 25-19. Fort Whites biggest challenge came in the second, a close game where there was 12 ties. Back-to-back kills from Kaelyn Locklear broke the final tie, giving her team a slim FWHS volley ball players sophomore Paige Dinges (left) and senior Aubrey Callum go up to block Eastside hitter Arriell Veal during Mondays game.

TIWAHE continued on 6BFSU in big trouble just 3 games into Taggart eraCOMMENTARYBy PAUL NEWBERRY Associated PressWillie Taggart walked into the room, took a nervous swig of water and did his best to get his flailing program back on track. The words had clearly been swirling around in his head for the past 48 hours, since another dismal performance by the Florida State Seminoles. He even jotted them down on paper, to make sure he didnt forget anything. Our fans have every right to have high expectations of our program, and I can assure you that no one has higher expectations than I do, Taggart said Monday, his eyes focused firmly on the notes in front of him. We have a proud history and tradition of football at FSU, and this is on our shoulders to carry on the torch. Our fans, students, alumni and former players deserve a team that plays better than what we have so far this season. Taggart has been the coach in Tallahassee for all of three games. More than enough time, it turns out, to look hopelessly overmatched in his new post. Now, it seems only a matter of time before the Seminoles are forced to move on from this trainwreck of a personnel decision. The only questions are how much it will cost them in the end, and how much damage will be left for the next coach to clean up. Actually, one more question should be asked: Why did Florida State think Taggart was qualified to run such a high-profile program? He had coached only one season at a Power Five school, leading Oregon to a rather ordinary 7-5 mark in the weak Pac-12 conference before returning to his native state to lead an Atlantic Coast Conference powerhouse, or the remnants of one. Before that, he went a combined 40-45 in seven seasons at Western Kentucky and South Florida. In light of his less-than-impressive resume, maybe its not all that surprising that Taggart is off to a 1-2 start with the Seminoles, but this goes beyond the obviously disappointing record. The Seminoles have looked dysfunctional, confused, disorganized and poorly coached in blowout losses to Virginia Tech and Syracuse, and even in a way-too-close victory over FCS school Samford. Taggarts performance at his weekly news conference provided little reason to believe he can turn things around. The way he made it sound, his players have no idea what theyre trying to do or what the coaches NOLES continued on 6B B1

Bill Belichick and Tom Brady have a new offensive toy. The Browns severed ties for good with the problematic wide receiver by trading him to the Patriots for a fifth-round draft pick on Monday, ending a relationship the team did all it could to save. The deal came together two days after the Browns reached a breaking point with Gordon, who has been suspended numerous times by the NFL for drug violations since Cleveland drafted him in 2012. He is gone now, coach Hue Jackson said. Gordon played in the Browns season opener against Pittsburgh, but he report ed to the team on Saturday with an unexplained hamstring injury after prac ticing all week. The Browns decided to leave him behind when they traveled to New Orleans, and later said they intended to release him. However, Cleveland general manager John Dorsey found there was a crowded market for him and worked out the swap with New England, which will also get a seventh-round pick.LOCAL SCOREColumbias volleyball team was defeated by Keystone Heights in straight sets (2521, 25-20, 25-13) Monday night.

LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER ADVICE & COMICS TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2018 3B DEAR ABBY: My husband has less and less interest in me. It started with the last presidential election. Since then, I have cut way back on politics because he doesnt want to hear any of it. Being an activist on several fronts, including politics and other areas, this is a big, emo tional part of who I am. I get so upset by his silences that I stop talking to him completely. Im spent fr om feeling so lonely, so unworthy of love, helpless, hopeless and powerless. I cant take this much longer. He says he wants to be with me, and he has just started private therapy. I, too, am in therapy. I was ready to draw up divor ce papers when I suddenly changed my mind. I told him Id wait a year for him to have his therapy, and then wed review everything we had lear ned and proceed from there. Have I made a mistake? Right now, I cant stand to be around him. He can be the worlds greatest giver, but other times hes a selfish, insensitive, arrogant know-it-all. I dont know if Im still in love with him. Does this proposed one-year r espite have any chance of working? -SAD WIFE IN BUFFALO DEAR WIFE: Yes, it does. It appears that in the midst of your pain and turmoil you experienced a brief moment of clarity. Your decision to give your husband -and yourself -a year of therapy and then revisit the issue of divorce was both wise and brilliant. You married each other for a reason; now give your selves a chance to remember what it was. DEAR ABBY: New neighbors moved in a few doors down from us. A few weeks later, they hosted an open house and invited about 15 families from the homes closest to theirs. They served food and graciously gave everyone a tour of the home, which had been completely renovated. My husband and I arrived about the same time as another neighbor and the three of us visited with our hostess. As she rolled out the red carpet, the other neighbor proceeded to talk about the history of the home -who had lived ther e and what the house had been like when she visited there as a friend of the previous owners. She then announced that the man who owned the home years ago had committed suicide -in the home. The hostess maintained a gracious stance, but my husband and I were hor rified. Should the neighbor be told that her comment was inappropriate? -HORRIFIED IN THE EAST DEAR HORRIFIED: Because the comment may have cast a pall over the housewarming, it was inappr opriate. However, it may not have come as a complete surprise to the new owners. In the state where I reside, real estate agents are required by law to disclose that there had been a death in the house (suicide, murder), which might affect the value of the property. If you feel the need to say something to the neighbor who made that tasteless comment, by all means do so. Abigail Van Wife on the verge of divorce calls for a one-year reprieve DILBERT BABY BLUES BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C. FRANK & ERNEST FOR BETTER OR WORSE ZITS HAGAR THE HORRIBLE SNUFFY SMITH GARFIELD CLASSIC PEANUTS DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES | THE LAST WORD BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Check out the changes others are making and consider what might work for you. Observing, asking questions and offering to help someone a few steps ahead of you can be remarkably helpful to both you and the other person. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Change can be good as long as it's thought-out and enforced properly. Don't let anyone rush you. Take your time and stay in control. After all, it's up to you to look out for your best interests. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Set a path and stick to it. Preparation will help you eliminate making a mistake or letting someone convince you that he or she knows more. Be secretive about your plans if you want to avoid interference. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You have more options than you think. Consider the best way to use your skills, knowledge and experience to head in a direction that suits your current lifestyle and direction. Romance is on the rise, and opportunity is heading your way. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The best way to move forward is to put your head down and concentrate on taking care of responsibilities and living up to your word. Avoid interaction with anyone who tends to put you down or takes advantage of your generosity. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You owe it to yourself to have some fun. Bring about personal changes that will lift your spirits and give you something to look forward to. Socializing or networking with colleagues will encourage positive change and personal growth. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You'll need to navigate your way through troubled waters today. Ignore attempts made to stand in your way and stay focused on your goal. Less interaction with others and more physical labor will result in what you want to achieve. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Speak up and get answers. Your astute way of dealing with matters will help you find solutions to problems that not only affect you but those around you. Take charge and you'll gain popularity and respect. Walk away from unpredictable people and situations. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don't spend what you don't have. Trying to impress someone or buying love will only leave you short of cash and no further ahead with the people you want to win over. Taking a risk will not pay off. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You'll be torn between what you want to do and what you should do. Look at the big picture and consider what will have the best long-term effects, and you'll know exactly what to do next. Romance is highlighted. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Calm down and think matters through. If you act in haste or you let someone talk you into something you have doubts about, you will wish you had played it safe. Personal or physical changes are best put on hold. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Helping others will make you feel good and raise your profile. A change at work or to how you earn your living will turn in your favor. Speak up and people will listen to what you have to say. Sept. 18: Singer Jimmie Rodgers is 84. Actor Robert Blake is 85. Actor Fred Willard is 85. Actor Eddie Jones (Lois and Clark, The Invisible Man is 84. Singer-actor Frankie Avalon is 78. Actress Beth Grant (The Mindy Project, No Country for Old Men) is 69.

6B TUESDA Y, SEPTEMBER 18, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER want them to do. Weve got to evaluate every day how were coaching and what message were taking to our guys, Taggart said. As coaches and as teachers, youve got to find ways to get to your players, so they can do exactly what you ask them to do. As coaches, weve got to be smart and make sure were not over-coaching. Its about making sure our guys are comprehending what we need them to do and understanding why were doing certain things. Of course, these were lessons that shouldve been instilled back in spring practice and all through summer workouts and on into preseason camp. This is not the time for on-thejob training. In a season-opening 24-3 loss to Virginia Tech the Seminoles failed to score a touchdown at home for the first time in almost a decade. They turned it over five times. They had a blocked punt returned for a touchdown. They missed a field goal. Deondre Francois was sacked five times. There were all sorts of sloppy penalties, ranging from false starts to illegal formations. In the second half, the Seminoles offense was downright offensive. Outside of an 85-yard run by Cam Akers that produced the lone first down of the final two quarters, Florida State ran a grand total of 20 plays on its seven possessions for a loss of 5 yards. The result of those drives (using that term very loosely) four punts, two interceptions and a fumble. The following week, Florida State needed a fourth-quarter rally to escape with a 36-26 victory over Samford, a private school with fewer than 6,000 students that competes in the Southern Conference. The Seminoles defense was gashed for 525 yards, but managed to hold on thanks to five turnovers. No one thought for a minute that Taggart had righted the ship. That was certainly apparent this past Saturday. Hitting the road for the first time, Florida State was dominated again, 30-7, by a Syracuse team that hasnt had a winning season since 2013 The Seminoles gained just 240 yards and barely avoided being shut out by a defense that was torched for 42 points by Western Michigan two weeks earlier. The Orange sacked Francois four times, deflected a couple of passes and spent most of the day poring through an offensive line that seemed to think it was illegal to touch an opposing player. Not that the Seminoles didnt spend a lot of time doing illegal things, finishing with 11 penalties for 90 yards. Through three games, Florida State has been flagged a total of 27 times the surest sign of an undisciplined team in desperate need of some top-notch coaching. Florida States start has even sparked questions whether Taggart could be one-and-done, but that seems highly unlikely given it would take a reported $21.2 million to escape his contract. (Former adult film star and Seminoles fan Mia Khalifa is trying to help by launching a GoFundMe campaign to raise the money, complete with a misspelling of the embattled coachs name; as of late Monday afternoon, she had brought in $66. ) In fairness to Taggart, former coach Jimbo Fisher knew what he was doing when he bolted for Texas A&M. This program has been a state of decline since its 2013 national championship, culminating with last seasons mark of 7-6 overall and 3-5 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. But no one expected the Seminoles to sink this low. Wrapping up his news conference, Taggart appeared to go off script in one more attempt to rally the troops. Once again, he bellowed, not so much for the room of reporters but those watching the live stream, I believe in this football team, and I believe theyre going to get it right. Were all going to get it right. Hang in there with us. Go Noles! Was anyone buying it? Doubtful.

Fort Whites defensive front held up, though, while Rachael Steedley and Calista Avery secured the second-set win by scoring the last two points. Fort White showed maturity and growth finishing out both sets strong. We just had to tell each other that we got this, Dinges added. This is not a team we really need to compete with. Fort White no trouble against reeling Eastside in the final set. Aubrey Callums kill midway through gave the Lady Indians a 15-4 lead. Avery and Dinges played well late again the set to cruise to a 25-14 win.

The Lady Indians look forward to the opportunity to snag their first district win, versus one of the better teams in Class 5A. Were just going to stay focused, Conner said. Were going to keep setting our goals, and just keep pushing. We just got to keep playing smart and keep growing. Theres things were starting to find that we do well, so we just got to keep working on those things to make them better and better.
