Airbnb Florida public affairs manager Ben Breit said among the 32 counties designated rural by the state, Columbia County was experiencing the greatest growth in interest from Airbnb guests and hosts alike. Its growing in demand the fastest, Breit said. San Francisco-based Airbnb, founded in 2008, is an online service for people looking to rent their homes or other properties to travelers. The company reported a 215 percent growth in renters visiting the area which translated to 4,000 guests between its Aug. 2017 Aug. 2018 target range, a 55 percent increase. As a whole, Florida outdistanced all states for rural growth, with visitors more than doubling over the previous year. Texas was second. The company touted the supplemental income brought to those statewide, saying its hosts earned $24.7 million with a 110 percent growth in guests and a total of 125,00 visitors. Breit said the 40 Airbnb hosts in Columbia County brought in $285,000 in combined income, which averaged about $4,900 each. Airbnb receives three percent of the transactions. tigers top state pollBy COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comA typo was pivotal in the arrest of a Hillsborough County man now in jail one year after he visited two local banks with fake checks nearly $4,000 drawn on a Lake City metal work and welding shop, reports show.

On Aug. 29, 2017, Mack, then 30, visited two local Peoples State Bank locations to cash checks for $2,331 and $1,331. Out of the two checks totaling $3,662, Mack was able to cash the larger, worth nearly $2,500, at the banks West US Highway 90 branch, according to a CCSO warrant affidavit. Earlier that day Mack was turned away and his check confiscated by a teller at the South Main Boulevard branch.

Thanks for reading.New laws take effect Oct. 1TALLAHASSEE Laws will take effect next week that will add benefits for first responders who suffer post-traumatic stress disorder and impose harsher penalties on people who abuse animals, along with 19 other measures signed by Gov. Rick Scott after the 2018 legislative session. The laws taking effect Oct. 1 range from allowing credit cards to be used for background checks when firearms are purchased to doling out tougher punishment for people who steal bee colonies or trespass at airports. Most laws crafted during the legislative session, including the states $88.7 billion budget, hit the books on July 1. But others had later effective dates. The change for first responders (SB 376) would expand workers compensation insurance benefits for firefighters, police officers, paramedics and emergency-medical technicians who suffer from PTSD. The office of state Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis, who has started running a campaign ad that highlights his support for the law, announced last week the launch of training materials for first responders on PTSD. Weve heard terrible stories about the impact tragedies like Pulse, Parkland and most recently Jacksonville Landing, have on our first responders and their families, Patronis, whose job includes serving as state fire marshal, said in a statement. The training is an important step needed to help our first responders. According to a 2015 article published in the Journal of Emergency Medical Services, 6.6 percent of 4,000 first responders surveyed had attempted suicide, which is more than 10 times the rate in the general population. Under the new law, first responders who have witnessed the death of a minor or witnessed a death that involved grievous bodily harm of a nature that shocks the conscience can file workers compensation claims for lost wages. The new law is expected to increase workers compensation costs for cities and counties that employ first responders by upward of $7 million, according to the National Council on Compensation Insurance. Another new law (SB 1576) taking effect next week stems from the beating death last year of a 9-month-old Labrador retriever puppy in Volusia County. The new law, named Ponces Law after the puppy, will allows judges to bar people convicted of animal cruelty from owning pets. The legislation also increases the severity ranking of animal-abuse related crimes, making it more likely that offenders would go to jail upon conviction. Kate MacFall with the Humane Society of the United States hopes the new law will allow judges to make sure people who mistreat animals are not allowed to repeat the cycle of abuse. It gives that judge discretion to say they cant have any contact with animals during their probation, MacFall said. It clarifies that and gives the judge the authority to have that as part of the sentencing, so that the criminal cannot have contact with animals during their probation. In addition to dealing with animal cruelty, the new law also creates policies and procedures for animal shelters to use following natural disasters, such as hurricanes, to return lost pets to their owners. It puts more teeth into it. It stiffens the penalty for people who abuse animals, MacFall said. Who wouldnt support that? This all came from a dog named Ponce, that was beaten to death last year. It was a horrific tragedy. Other new laws going into place on Oct. 1: HB 55, allows people buying guns to use credit cards to pay for background checks. They have been required in the past to pay with personal checks, money orders or cashiers checks. HB 135, allows deaf people to voluntarily identify themselves as hearing-impaired when they register vehicles. The idea, which came from a Tallahassee police officer whose son is deaf, is intended to prevent communications issues with deaf drivers that could inadvertently lead to confrontations. HB 523, increases penalties to a third-degree felony for people who trespass on airport property to injure other people, damage property or impede the operations of aircraft. The bill is in reaction to instances since 2014 of people getting on property at Florida airports, including Orlando International, Tampa International and Miami International. HB 961, allows businesses such as bars to receive up to 10 cases of branded glassware 24 glasses per container a year from brewers or importers. Supporters of the beer glass bill maintained that the change would allow small businesses to save on the cost of glassware. But a number of craft brewers opposed the measure, arguing it would allow a small number of brewers who could afford the costs to flood the market with company-branded glassware. First responders to get some relief, but bee thieves beware. The change for first responders (SB 376) would expand work ers compensation insurance benefits for firefighters, police officers, paramedics and emergency-medical technicians who suffer from PTSD. The office of state Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis, who has started running a campaign ad that highlights his sup port for the law, announced last week the launch of training materials for first responders on PTSD.

The punishment made him the first celebrity of the #MeToo era to be sent to prison and completed the dizzying, late-in-life fall from grace for the comedian, TV star and breaker of racial barriers. It is time for justice. Mr. Cosby, this has all circled back to you. The time has come, Montgomery County Judge Steven ONeill said. He quot ed from victim Andrea Constands statement to the court, in which she said Cosby took her beautiful, young spirit and crushed it. Cosby declined the opportunity to speak before the sentence came down, and afterward sat laughing and chatting with his defense team. His wife of 54 years, Camille, was not in court. Constand smiled broadly upon hearing the punishment and was hugged by others in the courtroom. Cosbys lawyers asked that he be allowed to remain free on bail while he appeals his conviction, but the judge appeared incredulous over the request and ordered him locked up immediately, saying that he could quite possibly be a danger to the community. COSBYContinued From 1AKim and Bill Becker are one of the 40 Airbnb hosts in Columbia County and are among that 55 percent host growth the company reported. Having lived in Lake City for about 30 years, Kim Becker said they began renting through Airbnb in September 2017, around the time of Hurricane Irma. People needed places to flee, she said. Becker said she and her husband invested in real estate, purchasing properties locally around the time of the real estate bubble and subsequent downturn in 2008. With a few additional long termlease properties already secured in the area, Becker said she was less than enthusiastic in her expectations from Airbnb. However, she said so far things were, wonderful. The eight pages of comments shes accumulated on The Meadow House show demand and satisfied customers. The expectations were not good and it has way exceeded my expectations, Becker said. Most people that stay in the three bedroom two and a half bath she rents near I-75 for $95 a night are in the area for the springs, but she said there are others as well, families looking for larger places to stay while in town for reunions, sporting events, etc. Some families just want a traditional house, Becker said. Ive got a playroom for the kids. Its set up so like a family can come in and feel like theyre home. She said at first she was worried neighbors might not like having a Airbnb house in the neighborhood, but through an extensive screening process, and the companys ranking system her visitors were thoroughly vetted before they arrived. We screen carefully for the sake of our neighbors and the sake of our property, Becker said. Local hotelier Nick Patel was unfazed by Airbnbs reported rural successes. Patel is the owner of Lake City Hotels, a local hotel management company, with a new Hilton franchise on the way. I actually do not see them as a threat, Patel said. Patel sits on the Columbia County Tourist Development Council. Before that he was part of a similar entity in Alachua County that oversaw the emergence of Airbnb there. At the same time I consider that there should be a level playing field, Patel said. What that means is, hotels have to adhere to standards, so should Airbnb. Patel said that also meant adhering to the various safety inspections, permits and zoning regulations enacted and enforced by local and state government. Airbnb also reported contributing to state tax and local bases through state collections. A statement at the end of the press release said, Thanks to a 2015 tax agreement with the Florida Department of Revenue, Airbnb collects and remits state sales tax on all Airbnb bookings in Florida, which delivered $33 million to the state in 2017.

Its another sad summation of this nations political state that an unprovable, 36-year-old, last-minute sexual allegation just could keep the Supreme Court from decades of reestablishing constitutional faithfulness we so badly need. But there you have it, and what you also have is moral chest-thumping on the side pulling this off just as it comes up with a frighteningly ruinous tactic. Were talking, of course, about calling for an FBI investigation into an allegation from Christine Blasey Ford. A 51-year-old college professor, she says that, when she was 15, a drunken, 17-year-old Brett Kavanaugh got on top of her, felt her body, tried to take off her clothes and put his hand over her mouth before she escaped to a bathroom and locked the door. But she did not tell anyone about it until six years ago and does not know exactly where or when it happened. Psychologists tell us it is not all that rare for people to get something like this entirely wrong, and the only witness says the story is untrue. So does Kavanaugh, and coming to his defense are 65 women who knew him in his high school days and say he was one highly reputable guy. Think about that for a minute. How many men could count on 65 women putting a halo around their teen years? It hardly stops there because numbers of women who have worked for and with Kavanaugh have spoken up about his decency and integrity, and then we arrive at another matter. Kavanaugh is someone who believes in rule of law, in the court abiding by credible interpretations of what the Constitution says instead of obtuse legalese expressing subjective judgments about what it should say. What we get with that line of thought is a betrayed republic and an oligarchy of appointed, unaccountable justices taking the place of legislatures. Kavanaugh, who could give the court a constitutionalist majority, performed brilliantly in a clownish hearing and even made it clear he does not think Roe v. Wade should be scuttled, a foremost concern of Democratic senators. But then came a particular Democratic senator, Dianne Feinstein, releasing an anonymous letter she had received six weeks earlier. It was written by Ford, who then reached out to the Washington Post, which identified her in a story after an interview. Republicans said she could speak at a hearing. Ford, a Democrat, hired fiercely feminist lawyers and one of them along with crass Democratic opportunists called for this FBI investigation. The FBI has already checked Kavanaugh out a half dozen times; this goes beyond its duties and there is almost surely no way to verify the charge at this point. A probe could also take months during which President Donald Trump would have to come up with another nominee and Democrats might slow things down and take control of the Senate in the midterms, erasing chances of reform. Kavanaugh just may have already lost enough votes to count him out, even though some of what we are seeing is little short of madness. If some citizen can come out of the blue with a decades-old allegation and no evidence and have everything come to a halt in a nomination, whats to stop dozens from doing this in the years to come? We already have a Democratic senator, Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, saying men should all shut up and women should all be believed and it almost seems this bigotry has become the new, hallowed way of things. None of this means that Ford herself should be treated with disrespect. She does indeed seem a victim of terrible hurt. It does mean our political process should not give way to political machinations threatening the substance of our republic.

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 Justice on trialTheres more at stake in Washington this week than the philosophical composition of the U.S. Supreme Court. Judge Brett Kavanaugh is fighting for his name and reputation against the inquisition engineered by the Democrats on the Judiciary Committee of the U.S. Senate, and what is struggling to survive is nothing less than hundreds of years of law, precedent and guarantees of justice inherited from Anglo-Saxon legal tradition. If destroying a reputation without evidence wins the day, the cornerstone of the American judicial system the presumption of innocent until proved guilty will crumble. With her surprise witness Christine Blasey Ford to accuse, with evidence, Judge Brett Kavanaugh of attempted rape, Sen. Dianne Feinstein succeeded in disrupting the proceedings to enable a search for witnesses to corroborate the Ford accusation that a drunk, teenage Brett Kavanaugh groped her at a party 36 years ago. Mrs. Ford cannot remember where it was, when it was, who invited her to the party, how she got there or how she got home. Judge Kavanaugh repeated Monday his unequivocal insistence that it never happened, and the witnesses Mrs. Ford said could authenticate her story said they dont know what shes talking about. No lawyer would go into court with a case like that lest he be cited for mockery of the law. Mrs. Ford asked for an opportunity to tell her story, and the Republican majority on the committee has tried to oblige. Her date to tell the committee the story is finally scheduled for Thursday, but after several postponements to enable her to quibble over arrangements, no one can be sure she will show up. The emergence of a second woman with a similar tale of harassment without evidence further muddies the schedule. The circumstances of Sen. Feinsteins game have all the earmarks of the down-and-dirty. She sat on the allegation for two months, passing up opportunities to question Judge Kavanaugh in a private conversation and three long days of committee hearings. Then she sprang Mrs. Fords revelation just as the panel was ready to vote. The Democrats had vowed to scuttle the Kavanaugh nomination by any means fair or foul, and they are as good as their word. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York says I believe her because she is telling the truth. Sen. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii dispensed with all pretense that she wants a fair hearing. I just want to say to men in this country: Just shut up and step up. Do the right thing for a change. As the Red Queen proclaimed in Alices Adventures in Wonderland, Sentence first verdict afterward. From the casting couch to the Oval Office, men have used powerful positions to prey on vulnerable women, and men who do that should be called to account. Both men and women are capable of exploiting a weakness for sex with lies, and both men and women should do the right thing, as Sen. Hirono admonished. But doing the wrong thing includes bearing false witness, and women no less than men are capable of bearing false witness, which is why, under our system of justice, men and women are presumed to be innocent until proved guilty. Both men and women, including senators from New York to California and beyond to islands in the Pacific, are obliged to put aside their own political and sexual biases to determine who is telling the truth. Justice must be blind, but not deaf.Attacking the republicDoping: Russian chemists, on your mark!Perhaps the most galling aspect of Russian cheating in past Olympics was the Kremlins smirky insistence that it had done nothing wrong. Steroid-laced cocktails behind closed doors, doped-up Russian athletes pilfering Olympic glory and Potemkin denials at the lectern. Acknowledgment of guilt was supposed to be a condition for Russias reinstatement into the international sports community. Russias anti-doping agency, deemed by investigators to be a key cog in the cheating, could not resume operations until Russia came clean about its state-sponsored doping program. This week, the World AntiDoping Agency lifted a ban it imposed on the Russian anti-doping agency in November 2015. That clears the way for the agency to test again, for Russian athletes to compete under their own flag and for Russia to begin hosting international sports events. Chemists, on your mark! The international sports communitys reputation has been battered by years of performance-enhancing drug scandals. WADAs decision will only heighten doubt around the world about the fairness and integrity of competitions, and the resolve of sports officials to keep cheating out of sport. Russias reliance on systematic doping to win medals had the oily feel of East Germanys exploits in the 1970s, when the Soviet satellites anything-goes thirst for victory included female swimmers as young as 11 being fed steroids. Russias methodology entailed athletes at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi getting steroids stirred into either Chivas or vermouth. The Russian anti-doping agency carried out the effort, with the help of Russian intelligence agents who swapped out tainted urine samples with clean samples obtained from athletes months earlier. The dead-of-night exchanges were done at an Olympic testing laboratory, through a small cutout in the wall. The International Olympic Committee left it to individual sports federations to decide whether Russian athletes could compete at the 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro. As a result, some athletes went, some had to stay home. Earlier this year at the Winter Games in South Korea, the Russian flag and anthem were banned, but Russian athletes could compete as Olympic Athletes from Russia if they were deemed clean. Until this week, WADA had conditioned Russias reinstatement on the government admitting that it oversaw a state-sponsored doping scheme. In the end, WADA settled for Russias assurance that it would provide officials access to computer records that show which athletes cheated. Sports officials hoping for earnest reform feel cheated, not just by Russia but by WADA. The New York Times quoted Travis Tygart, chief executive of the U.S. AntiDoping Agency as calling WADAs decision a devastating blow to the worlds clean athletes. Its also a devastating blow to spectators around the world who watch the Olympics because of its core ideal: Faster, Higher, Stronger achieved not by taking drugs but through years of grit, sweat and sacrifice. How many of those spectators will continue to watch if Faster, Higher, Stronger is determined by pharmacologists, the people with the pipettes?

He was booked into the Columbia County Detention Center on $1,000 bond. According to Columbia County Sheriffs Office reports, around 7:27 a.m. Sunday, a deputy was dispatched to a Southwest Russwood Terrace address in reference to a suspicious person. A newspaper deliveryman called authorities when he saw Holt near a home and Holt fled from the home and back to the street when he saw the newspaper carrier. The carrier said Holt was lying in the road on Southwest Russwood Terrace when he left the neighborhood. When the deputy arrived, he spoke to Holt, who was lying on the road in front of his mothers home. Holt, who has an active trespass warning to keep him off the property, told the deputy he was waiting on his ride and he wanted his belongings from his mothers house. When the deputy spoke to the homeowner, she explained that Holt arrived at her home and was knocking on her window, after which he would run back to the street. She said she tried to ignore Holt and walked outside and threw a phone charger and $60 in the roadway in hopes that he would leave. However, he continued to call her until she blocked his number and then called 9-1-1. The deputy told Holt not to go back onto the property and to stay out of the roadway. He walked across to Troy Street and sat on the sidewalk. But not for long. I saw Shawn standing on Southwest Russwood Terrace ... pointing and mouthing words towards her home in an aggressive manner, reports said. When I pulled up to Shawn, he was yelling and cursing in the roadway ... because she would not give him money or his clothes. The deputy instructed Holt to leave and he complied, yelling and cursing the whole way. Around 25 minutes later the deputy was dispatched back to the scene. Apparently Holt had gotten another cell phone from a former girlfriend and was calling his mothers house and banging on the door again. Holt was then arrested and placed in the back of the patrol car. While in the back of the patrol car, Holt reportedly continued to yell and curse, making derogatory remarks and arguing with deputies on the scene. He also started kicking the patrol car door and hitting his head on the partition, the report said, before he was taken to jail. HOMELESSContinued From 1A

6A WEDNESDA Y, SEPTEMBER 26, 2018 HEALTH LAKE CITY REPORTER Im sure youve heard of those delicious orange fruits called papayas! Papayas themselves have all kinds of health benefits. For one, they are extremely fiber-rich. Also, the antioxidant content is extraordinarily high and fantastic to help with the maintenance of healthy cholesterol levels and atherosclerosis (the build-up of plaque in the arteries). Lets focus on papain, the highly beneficial compound found in the leaves and fruit of the papaya. Papain is an enzyme which means it helps drive reactions in your body. For example, if you eat a hamburger, protease enzymes are secreted during digestion that help break down the meat, turning it into smaller protein molecules called amino acids. Enzymes that break down proteins are termed proteolytic enzymes. Papain, is also a proteolytic enzyme and its commonly found in meat tenderizer. Here are five other powerful benefits of papaya and papain:Heal Your Skin and Wounds Papaya fruit and leaf can both be applied to minor burns and wounds to speed up the healing process. We use a lot of triple antibiotic ointment in the United States, however, where drugs are not heavily promoted or allowed, families use natural remedies. As an example, in Latin America, Hawaii, and Tahiti, papain leaves are used commonly for burns. There are certain gels sold commercially.Address Sinus & Breathing Problems Papain can thin mucus, specifically by diluting sinus mucin, a glycoprotein found in mucus. In this way, papain could be great for helping you with chronic sinus infections.Reduce Bloating and Diarrhea In a case study, a male patient with gluten intolerance added papain once daily, every day, for one month (while eating a gluten-free diet) and experienced better digestion, as well as improved stools, dramatically less diarrhea, and an obvious decrease in bloat.Improve Antioxidant Capabilities Papain contains compounds that make it a potent antioxidant, helping to protect your body from cellular damage caused by free radicals. Papain, in fact, is an antioxidant on par with strong antioxidant vitamins like vitamins C and E.Fight Cancer The specific action papain has on cancer cells is by dissolving the thick protein coating around the cancer cell called fibrin. Other studies suggests that papaya juice has anti-proliferative effects which means it might slow metastasis. Finally, it can induce apoptosis which essentially, makes cancer cells run and hide. Papaya is obviously loaded with medicinal benefits. I recommend it so long as youre not allergic to it, to its skin or to the pineapple enzyme called bromelain (theres a cross-sensitivity). Its easy to incorporate papaya and papain into your life. Supplements are widely available too. Supplementation might be a good idea if are supported on acid blocking drugs or PPI ulcer and reflux medications. If you sign up for my free newsletter at my website, suzycohen.com I will send you a longer version of this article, and explain more about this. Ill also share my recipes, a papaya tea recipe and more medical information.

Though there is one bright spot they can point to: their ability to defend the run. The Seminoles are 11th in the FBS in rush defense, allowing just 97.5 yards per game. Florida State held Northern Illinois to six rushing yards on 20 carries in a 37-19 win on Saturday, the lowest total allowed by the Seminoles since they held Colorado to -27 yards in Sept. 2007. Thats something wed like to do each and every week, Florida State coach Willie Taggart said. If we can make a team one-dimensional, it gives us an advantage. That was really impressive by our defense. They have another opportunity for an impressive performance this week when square off against Louisville in an Atlantic Coast Conference matchup. The Cardinals have one of the worst offenses in the conference. NIUs total was also the fewest yards given up by a Taggart-coached team. And Taggart just may see more performances like that as Florida State (2-2, 0-2 ACC) plays at Louisville (2-2, 0-1), which is one of the nations worst running teams. Louisville is 110th out of 130 FBS teams in rush offense, averaging just 121.3 yards per game. Florida State lost eight defensive starters from 2017, a group that was also quite good against the run (135.6 yards per game). But after saying goodbye to first-round pick Derwin James as well as defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi and defensive end Josh Sweat, there were concerns about how a Seminoles defense that was lacking in experience would perform this fall. The Seminoles held Virginia Tech to 112 rushing yards and Samford to 50 rushing yards before Syracuse broke loose for 222 yards on 57 carries. Florida State trailed the Orange just 6-0 at the half before the time of possession dis-Seminoles heads to Louisville with a 2-2 record.FSU continued on 2B SEE MORE PHOTOS FROM AROUND THE COUNTY ON PAGE 2B BRENT KUYKENDALL/Lake City ReporterVanguards Re Na Ashley sends a shot over Columbias Asherah Collins on Tuesday night.

PETERSBURG (AP) Struggling Gary Sanchez drove in four runs for the first time since early April, Luis Severino won his 19th game and the New York Yankees beat the Tampa Bay Rays 9-2 on Tuesday night to keep up their push for home-field advantage in the AL wild-card game. Scherzer gets to 300 Ks, in Nats win over MiamiWASHINGTON (AP) Max Scherzer became the 17th pitcher since 1900 to strike out 300 batters in a season, reaching that milestone by fanning 10 in seven innings Tuesday night during the Washington Nationals 9-4 victory over the Miami Marlins.parity had an impact and Syracuse wore out Florida State. Syracuse held the ball for nearly 37 minutes as the defense struggled to catch its breath or halt drives and Florida States offense couldnt put together but a few in a 30-7 loss. That trend reversed on Saturday as Florida State had 23 first downs and turned in its most efficient performance of the season. The Seminoles defense benefitted and was only on the field for 22 minutes, 21 seconds. Last time we were on the field for a good amount of time, senior defensive tackle Fred Jones said. But thats no excuse for why we gave up touchdowns. If we get put on the field, we still have to make plays and stops. Florida State made stops on Saturday. NIU never was able to get anything going, rushing eight times for 11 yards in the first half. Even without senior defensive tackle Demarcus Christmas, who missed the game due to injury, the Seminoles were able to produce a pair of fourth-down stops and force eight punts. We know we had to shut down the run if we wanted to win the game, said defensive tackle Marvin Wilson, who started in place of Christmas. Florida State also played its best game of the season against NIU on defense and offense. The performance provided the Seminoles with some much-needed confidence and momentum heading into Saturdays game at Louisville. This so far is the best weve played this year, Jones said. But theres room for improvement. Now we just have to keep building on this every week. Notes: Taggart said Monday that Christmas will play against the Cardinals. Right tackle Landon Dickerson (ankle) returned to practice after missing Florida States last three games and is looking good. But he said that another offensive lineman, Derrick Kelly, is not close to playing. Kelly, who has started at guard and tackle, watched Florida States win over NIU from the sideline but needed crutches to move around.

LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER ADVICE & COMICS WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2018 3B DEAR ABBY: I found out a month ago that my wife and my best friend had a relationship 40 years ago when we were in our 20s. My friend hinted about it, so I asked him point blank and he confessed. Obviously, if you cant trust someone, hes not your friend. My question is, should I ask my wife to tell me what went on or just sweep it under the rug and move forward? Not a day goes by that I dont wonder what hap pened to make her stray, or how long the affair went on under my nose. I tried talking to her about it right after I found out, but she star ted crying, which is one of my weaknesses. I dont like making folks upset, so I took the blame because I wasnt a very good husband. We married very young, and I wasnt ready. -HURT AND ANGRY DEAR H AND A: I would love to know your friends motivation for hinting so broadly that hed had an affair with your wife that youd ask him point blank. He seems more a troublemaker than a stalwart friend to me. If you have had a happy 40-year marriage, I think you should let it r emain so. OK, so neither of you were angels. Divorce the friend and let it go. DEAR ABBY: Im 30, married and the only female analyst in an office with 12 men. I love my job and I enjoy working here, but it is very hard to prove yourself as a woman in a male-dominated industry. There is one other woman in my office, a recently divorced administrator I barely know. Shes very open about her online dating and sex life, and I am at a loss. I feel its extr emely inappropriate for her to share detailed information with me in the workplace. Im also afraid the guys will hear her and take me less seriously as a professional and equal. I have tried politely changing the subject, ignor ing her or avoiding her, but nothing seems to work. I dont want to embarrass her by telling her flat out to not discuss her sex life with me, but Im not sur e what else I can do? -COVERING MY EARS DEAR COVERING: What the woman is doing can be considered sexual harassment, and in most sizable businesses -yours appears to be one -there are policies in place to protect employees. I suggest you tell her that hearing about her sexual escapades makes you uncomfortable and to please stop. And if she doesnt, discuss it with either human resources or your employer. DEAR ABBY: My gentleman friend and I are senior citizens who live together. W e have acquired a dog and cat. I pay for the cats food, vaccinations and litter. He pays for the dogs food and vaccinations. Last week my boyfriend accidentally slammed the door on the cats tail. Part of it had to be amputated, and the bill for surgery, drugs, cone, etc. came close to $400. Neither of us is hurting financially. Who do you think should foot this bill? -MOTHER OF FUR BABIES DEAR MOTHER: I think your gentleman friend should foot the bill.

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): Settle down and settle in. Treat relationships with respect, and be willing to discuss how you would like to see things unfold. Partnerships will need nurturing, not ignoring. Take care of personal business, and you'll feel better. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don't let the changes going on around you disrupt your day. Go with the flow, and you will find a way to navigate your way to greater stability. Love and romance should be priorities. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Travel plans will bring you one step closer to a pending problem you've been trying to resolve. What you discover will help you make a decision that will encourage you to do something you should have done a long time ago. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Emotional situations can lead to poor choices. Before you get yourself into trouble, you should go over the consequences that will unfold should you decide to be reckless. A youngster or lover will try to manipulate you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You need to take a break. If things aren't going your way at home or at work, visit someone levelheaded who can help you see your situation clearly. Overreacting will only make matters worse. Surround yourself with positive people. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don't question what others are doing when you should be focusing on what you are trying to achieve. It's up to you to bring about the changes that will make you happy. A close friend or relative will offer solid advice. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Problems at home or with an older friend or relative should be handled with diplomacy. The changes that occur due to a personal situation will end up being beneficial if you put your time, thought and energy into a positive response. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take precautions if you get involved in physical activities. Don't feel obligated to keep up with someone who may be stronger or better prepared to handle a situation that requires strength. Concentrate more on personal improvement, not competing with others. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A change regarding the way you earn your living may come as a surprise. Accept the inevitable; benefits will follow. Home improvements should be made based on your needs or the needs of someone you love. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don't sweat the small stuff. Retaliation is a waste of time. How you respond matters. Do so with dignity, integrity and persistence. For those who think like you, your friendship will prosper, and for those who don't, let them go. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Figure things out for yourself. If you let someone be your leader, you will end up having regrets. Keep your life simple and your overhead doable. Life isn't a competition, and trying to make an impression isn't recommended. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Explore your options and embrace change. Reconnect with people you have enjoyed working or playing with in the past, and get involved in events and activities that are physically or financially beneficial. Sept. 26: Philip Bosco is 88.

6B WEDNESDA Y, SEPTEMBER 26, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER The 1989 team will tell you the same that squad went 10-1 but lost in the first round of the playoffs to Lake Howell. Im happy for my kids that theyre getting the recognition from sports writers and those who vote upon the rankings, Columbia head coach Brian Allen said. Im happy for the kids, Im happy for the program and Im happy for the school. At the end of the day, the final ranking is the one that matters to me most. The thing with that as I always tell my kids is that you have to be careful with that just because you start to believe it and you dont want anything to slow you down from how you work because youre ranked a certain way. Once you get those type pf rankings, if a team wasnt already aiming for you everybody is aiming for yourankings are good, top rankings are good from on perspective that your program is getting the recognition but at the end of the day you have to be able to come out and play your best ball every week because youre going to get the best effort from your opponents because of those high rankings. Aquinas has been No. 1 for the first four weeks of the season before losing 43-27 to Central. There are still some doubts about Columbia from state voters, with Aquinas receiving the other four first-place votes. A lot of of respect is still being given to the Raiders, evident by the fact theyre still ranked ahead of two undefeated teams in No. 3 Lakeland (5-0) and No. 4 Tampa Bay Tech (4-0). Some Columbia players are still carrying a chip on their shoulder as a result. Theyre going to always underestimate us, Columbia receiver Bobby Fulton said. Were the underdog but I dont pay any attention to that. I dont try and get into all that voting stuff. We dont need big heads or anything. Weve got to keep playing like were in last place in our district. Columbia faces another tough test this Friday when it travels to Jacksonville to face Class 5A No. 2 Trinity Christian.FHSAA RELEASES POINTS STANDINGSThe Florida High School Athletic Association released its first playoff points standings for the season on Tuesday and Columbia grabbed the top spot in Region 1-7A. The Tigers have an average of 48 points through the first five games of the season and hold a huge lead in the region, with Buchholz sitting in second with 42.4 points. Robert E. Lee was right behind the Bobcats with 42.25. Columbias built its large lead in the standings thanks to wins over Buchholz, Robert E. Lee and Madison County. Allen wasnt surprised by the standings he knew Saturday morning thanks to a secret mathematician thats been crunching numbers for him since the season started. But Columbia was even No. 1 in the standings a year ago through five weeks despite losses to Lee and Madison County. Victories over those teams this season only increased the margin. We were already at the 40-point mark a year ago with the two losses to two 1-tier teams so I knew our number would be up based off of what weve done so far, Allen said. The big part of it with the way things are going this year is were staring the district championship in the face so were not worried about having to be the 5-seed playing on the road. Now were trying to secure every round of the playoffs here so we want this number to stay good and this game (against Trinity Christian) is a big one and Bolles will be another team that gives us good numbers but we dont want to only lead our region but (Class) 7A across the state so now were that home team for four rounds of the playoffs. Oakleaf (41), Edgewater (39.75), Fleming Island (38.4), Lincoln (38.2) and Fletcher (38.2) round out the rest of the potential playoff field.INJURY REPORTColumbia could be without two key defenders against Trinity Christian. Pass rusher Levontae Camiel suffered a concussion against Madison County and is in protocol this week. Hell be a game-time decision for Friday and he isnt the only one defensive lineman Daylon Lumpkin suffered a sprained ankle last week and was in a boot during Tuesdays practice. Lumpkin says doctors are concerned there could be a fracture and hell find out more today at his doctors visit. Allen listed him as game-time decision and also said the team could be without Travis Myers with an undisclosed injury. Safety Brandon Scott will return to action after missing the last three games with an ankle injury.INDIANS HAVE HILL TO CLIMBFort White would be on the outside looking in if the playoffs started today. The Indians came in eighth out of nine teams in Region 1-3A in the first points standings released Tuesday, registering 35 points. Only the top six teams makes the postseason, with Fort White currently trailing sixth-seeded Providence and Taylor County by a point. Fort White hosts Providence next Monday at 6 p.m. Florida currently holds the top spot with 44.25 points, followed by Baldwin (43.4), St. Joseph (42.6), Pensacola (39.8) and Episcopal (37.5) to round out the top five. TOPPERS Continued From 1Bters when they go to hit to read defenses and stuff, Columbia coach Trudy Andrews said the offensive woes. Thats something theyre just learning to do, and we did it at times. Weve just got to get a little bit quicker to help out our hitters in those situations. I thought our hitters and blockers adjusted very well. They did an awesome job blocking. I think that put [Vanguard] on their heels a bit. Im proud of what this team is accomplishing. We played way better this match than the last at [VHS]. After suffering a straight set loss in Ocala earlier this month, the Lady Tigers (5-10, 1-5) showed improvement against the Lady Knights (12-3, 6-1) Tuesday. But again, Columbia was plagued by a rough start which allowed Vanguard to capitalize on an early advantage in the opening set. Columbia played its best ball of the night in the second set. Asherah Collins registered three of her six kills during the set as the Lady Tigers kept it close against the Lady Knights before ultimately falling 25-17. Were right there, were right there, Andrews said of being a league contender. Im extremely proud of the way theyre competing, to be able to hang with these types of teams and compete with them. Were just going to get better. It was more of the same in the final set as Vanguard again got a comfortable lead with the help of unearned points. Vanguard captain Grace Letterly, who finished with 15 digs and 15 assists, anchored the team in the last set, pulling away 25-15. With five games remaining in the regular season, including matches against Fort White and Eastside, the Lady Tigers look to end the year on a high note before the district tournament begins next month. Columbia hosts Lake Weir Thursday night. That helps bring in the confidence, Andrews added. And gets us better in areas we might be a little weak at [and] gets us stronger in areas were already strong at. Weve just got to continue working.
