In a missing persons-related stop, Tonya Martha Sullivan, 44, of the 100 block of SE Chaney Glen, got a felony contraband smuggling and a paraphernalia possession charge when she disregarded a Columbia County Sheriffs deputy order to hand over anything she was hiding, her arrest report said. Sullivan was picked up riding with Horace Calhoun around 1:40 a.m. on Oct. 3 in his 2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer. Relatives called police, saying the man went missing after he went to get lunch for his mother and never returned, according to the CCSO report.

Putnam says trade deal falls short for FloridaBy JIM TURNERThe News Service of FloridaFlorida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam would like the renegotiated and rebranded North American Free Trade Agreement to do more to help the states farmers. And hes not alone, as U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., also expressed concerns about the absence of relief for Florida agriculture in the revamped trade pact announced late Sunday. Putnam, who has long been a critic of the 24-year-old NAFTA, pointed to a need for more work to help Florida farmers who compete with growers in Mexico. I am disappointed that this new agreement has no new protections for Florida fruit and vegetable producers, who for too long have suffered from Mexicos unfair trade practices despite our best efforts, Putnam CCSO continued on 2A PUTNAM continued on 2AOne look at First United Methodist Church of Lake City is enough to see that fall is in full swing. The church has gotten into the seasonal spirit by selling pumpkins bought from a Navajo reservation in New Mexico. Proceeds go to outreach programs. Pumpkins start at under a dollar for the miniatures and go up from there, with a good-sized one going for about $30. They will be for sale from mid-morning to dusk until Halloween. McAlpin man barked at K-9: CopsBy COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comA McAlpin man stopped for DUI started a fight with a police dog, adding misdemeanor teasing to marijuana, paraphernalia and weapons charges, law enforcement said.

lence. When she was searched the first time, the deputy reported finding a necklace, some change and steel wool in her pocket. The officer noted that steel wool was used to act as a screen while smoking narcotics. Tonya advised that she had picked it up out of the floor of the vehicle, the arresting officers statement said. Tonya then advised that she did not use drugs, and she had nothing on her persons that was illegal. When the deputy told her that anything else she had and took into jail would incur an additional charge, Sullivan reportedly said she understood. After a second search, conducted this time by jail staff, Sullivan was found in possession of a small, broken, glass smoking pipe with residue, the report stated. A third search, the second by jail staff, yielded yet another pipe with more residue, according to the report. Sullivan was booked into jail on a $7,000 bond. 2A THURSDA Y, OCTOBE RR 4, 2018 D aA ILY BRIEFING L AA KE CIT YY RR EPO RR TE RR 7a 1p 7p 1a 6a LAKE CITY ALMANAC SUN MOON UV INDEX EXTREME: 10 minutes to burn T odays ultra-violet radiation risk for the ar ea on a scale fr om 0 to 10+.

Thanks for reading.Septic system rebate plan doesnt cover area counties CCSOContinued From 1A dispatchers had received multiple calls of Rethmans erratic driving. When deputies caught up with him, they said he crossed the center line into oncoming traffic, prompting a pursuit. Rethman didnt respond to the cruisers emergency lights or siren at first, an SCSO report said. When Rethman finally pulled over and was asked to leave his vehicle, the report said he stumbled and lost his balance several times. A search reportedly turned up marijuana and a pipe plus a bag containing various calibers of live ammunition. While being held in the patrol car, officers conducting the search reported hearing Rethman barking at K-9 officer Loki, who was in the front seat. (The deputy) heard him bark at K9 Loki while (Rethman) attempted to hit the side of the paneling closest to the K9, which caused Loki to bark uncontrollably, the arresting officers statement said. Rethman was warned that further agitation would result in a misdemeanor charge, but he wouldnt stop, the report stated. He now faces an additional charge of harassing, teasing or interfering with a police or fire animal. Rethman was taken to Suwannee County Jail where he was tested for DUI and found to have a 0.18 blood alcohol level by FHP, the report said. SCSOContinued From 1A said in an email Tuesday. Our department, Floridas congressional delegation and industry groups have fought hard to protect our specialty crop industry since the inception of NAFTA, and we will continue to do so as this new agreement moves forward, Putnam added. Putnam has argued for years that pepper and tomato growers and other Florida farmers have struggled against Mexican counterparts who swamp the U.S. market each winter with low-cost produce. Officials from the U.S., Mexico and Canada announced the new deal late Sunday, after President Donald Trump made revamping NAFTA one of his priorities. The deal, which needs congressional approval, includes numerous issues, ranging from auto manufacturing and Canadian dairy imports to a dispute-settlement system. Trump, who campaigned in 2016 arguing that NAFTA was poorly negotiated and hurting American workers and manufacturers, has proposed naming the revised pact as the United States-MexicoCanada Agreement. Rubio spokeswoman Olivia Perez-Cubas said in an email Tuesday that our concerns for Florida fruit and vegetables remain. A little more than a year ago, Rubio and U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., were among Florida lawmakers who urged U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer to push for measures to help the states agriculture industry. Last week, after initial details of a deal with Mexico were announced, Rubio and Nelson introduced legislation intended to help Florida farmer growers bring trade cases against Mexican growers. Under the proposal, farmers could initiate cases with the Department of Commerce and the U.S. International Trade Commission if they can prove dumping happens seasonally rather than year-round. Rubio said in a statement that the bill is aimed at preventing dumping of Mexican winter produce into U.S. markets and is needed because of the absence of a memorandum of understanding or suspension agreements with the Mexican government covering seasonal and perishable produce imports. In April, Putnam sent a letter to Lighthizer urging him to consider Floridas agriculture industry in negotiating changes to NAFTA. Putnam told Lighthizer that family farms in Florida and other states have found no relief from these unfair practices in our current trade laws or the current NAFTA agreement. In 2016, as the business-recruitment agency Enterprise Florida talked about expanding Floridas role in international trade, Putnam said it was already too late to undo damage to the states growers from NAFTA. The entire tomato industry has realigned and very much is a shadow of its former self, Putnam said in November 2016. At the time, Putnam said the most helpful thing Trump could do would be to enforce protections in the trade agreement that are supposed to keep American producers from being undercut by such things as product dumping and currency manipulation. Prior administrations just didnt enforce the letter of the treaty to begin with, Putnam said. Gosh, just that alone would be a step in the right direction. PUTNAMContinued From 1ABy CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comState environmental regulators didnt include Columbia County in a program to help property owners cover the cost of a septic tank upgrade that will soon be mandatory for new installations, and the local health department chief says his office will ask Tallahassee to reconsider before the rule takes effect in January. The rule would prohibit builders and owners from installing conventional septic tanks on lots smaller than an acre within specially designated zones, and most of southern Columbia County is located in one. Homeowners wont have to replace their old system if it still works, but new installations will have to meet standards aimed to reduce harmful nitrogen runoff in the springs. Excessive nitrogen pollution fuels runaway algae growth, threatening underwater flora and fauna, according to the Suwannee River Water Management District, Florida Department of Environmental Protection and Florida Department of Health. There are documented cases of cases of infant death and serious illness linked with excessive nitrate levels in drinking water, according to the state Department of Environmental Protection website. But nitrogen-reducing systems that comply with the looming guidelines cost thousands more than conventional models. On Tuesday, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection announced an incentive program to offset some of the price tag by up to $10,000 for homeowners in Citrus, Hernando, Leon, Marion, Orange, Pasco, Seminole, Volusia and Wakulla counties. The state health departments director for Columbia and Hamilton counties, Thomas Moffses, said his office has asked for clarification on why Columbia County was excluded. And the only thing we got back was that we did not make the list right now and we may at some point in the future, Moffses said. Wish I had more for you. The state health department is tasked with inspecting the septic systems for compliance with the new guidelines, Moffses said, emphasizing that his agency did not set the standards. The rule was originally going to take effect this year, but was postponed due to formal challenges being filed. The one positive that we got right now is that everything is on hold until January, Moffses said. Were going to make requests, we believe that Columbia County residents should have that opportunity. The nitrogen-reducing septic tanks are estimated to be anywhere from $8,000 to $15,000 more expensive than a standard $3,500 system, according to various officials and local developers. Financially it could have an impact, Moffses said. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection provided an email response to the Lake City Reporter regarding why Columbia County homeowners arent eligible for incentives. In certain areas where septic tanks have been identified as a major contributor to nitrogen pollution, state law requires the department to take action for both new and existing septic systems within Priority Focus Areas. In the case of the Santa Fe and Suwannee BMAPs, which includes Columbia County, septic tanks were not found to be a major contributor so there is no septic remediation plan is not requirement in these BMAPs, wrote agency spokesperson Dee Ann Miller. Moving forward, we will apply what we learn and see what opportunities there may be to expand or modify the program in the future. Environmental need is greater downstate than here, state officials say.

At the local public library, Halloween lasts all month COREY ARWOOD/Lake City RR eport erKate DD uong stands beside a spooky selec tion of books at Columbia County Public Library and said she wanted kids to have an entire month of HH allo ween reading.By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comFor a full fledged month of Halloween, Columbia County Public Librarys Creepy Book Countdown has the ghost stories. All that remain are the flashlight, a candle, or 10, some candy and the optional sheet tent and/or pillow fort. Theres still nearly a month left in their lineup with a new book announced each day, ranging from quite frightening to only kind of creepy. Kids love spooky books, even kids who are reluctant readers tend to like creepy books, said Kate Duong, library programs specialist. I get a lot of questions, Do you have any scary books? Do you have any creepy books? Do you have something scary but not too scary? Duong came up with the countdown in part to reach reluctant readers and out of a shared personal preference for the holiday and its literature. Oh, yeah. Im definitely a creepy book fan, Im very particular though, said Duong. Im not into gore. I just like solid classic horror. Coraline is one of my favorites. Coraline, and Duongs favorite author period, Neil Gaiman, are featured on the reading list. She said the goal was to top television network ABCs 13 Days of Halloween. Why only do 13 why not go for 30? Duong said. The books are only one way the library is celebrating Halloween. Duong said the childrens library crew will be at Trunk of Treat on Oct. 12 with a Harry Potterthemed display handing out candy near Lake DeSoto during Trunk or Treat. We love decorating for holidays, Christmas, Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Duong said. Shes been with CCPL for three years and has been the childrens library program specialist for two. Matching funds for hit record levelsWith just over a month to go before the November election, Florida statewide candidates have topped a matching-funds record from the 2010 election. Bolstered by small-dollar fundraising in the race for governor, $6.08 million has been sent by the state to candidates this year, according to figures provided Tuesday by the Florida Division of Elections. A little more than $400,000 was sent out on Friday to five candidates in the Nov. 6 general election. Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillums latest check from the state was for $246,965, and former Congressman Ron DeSantis, the Republican nominee for governor, received a check for $140,037. In 2010, the state doled out $6.065 million to 10 candidates in the controversial matching-funds program, which voters approved in 1998 with the intention of diminishing the importance of special-interest money. Some lawmakers continue to push for repealing the program. But the Legislature has not put the issue back before voters since a 2010 effort failed when it only gained 52.5 percent of the vote, short of the required 60 percent for adoption. House Speaker Richard Corcoran, R-Land O Lakes, called the program a gross waste of taxpayer money in 2017, when he called for the state Constitution Revision Commission to propose a measure to remove public financing from the Constitution. Even before this years Aug. 28 primary, candidates seeking the taxpayer money shot past the 2014 matching-funds total of $4.3 million. News Service of Florida
Its very hard to watch another human being cry. It makes you feel like a voyeur, gazing upon a sad moment that should be lived privately. It is a minor agony, to experience the agony of another. It is particularly hard when you know that the person didnt see the sorrow coming, didnt expect the crushing weight of it and still cant understand how it happened. I cry in private. I cannot imagine what it must be like to weep in front of strangers, on national television, with hostility staring you down. As we saw last week, Brett Kavanaugh does, and his private agony became our national shame. If you asked the Democrats, he was the source of his own shame, a man who had abused a woman named Christine Blasey Ford decades ago. They brought her to testify so that she could tell her story in much more detail than shed ever given before, and so that they could derail the nomination of her alleged accuser. They brought her to D.C., even though she had requested anonymity, and were very solicitous of the pain she says she suffers. She herself trembled on the edge of tears, but they never came. Her voice was weak, halting, unsure of its bearings. It was a slight and girlish voice, so mismatched with her middle-aged status and exceptional resume. It sounded as if, at any minute, she would cry. But she held it together. I felt sympathy for Christine Blasey Ford, especially after watching her testify. I still do not believe her when she says Brett Kavanaugh attacked her, despite her protestations that she is percent certain it was Kavanaugh who attacked her. I think she allowed herself to be used as a valuable tool in the unleashed fury of the #MeToo movement. But I did feel sorry for her predicament. She will be loved by many from here on out. She will be the new darling of the movement, taking the place of such flawed former idols as Asia Argento and Rose McGowan. She has more gravitas than the kids from Hollywood. But if she causes Brett Kavanaughs nomination to go down in flames, she will also be hated. She will always be pointed to as the woman used by the Democrats to get payback for Merrick Garland and, oh yeah, allow them to pretend they cared about victims of sexual abuse. She will never shake this notoriety, and she can cross the country, and her name will be on everyones lips. Some will love her. Many, many more will hate her for what she allowed herself to become. Brett Kavanaugh will also be unable to shake the dirt and slime of these last few weeks from the folds of his judicial robe. He will be forever tied to a woman he did not know and most likely never met. Among all of the women who know him, worked with him, dated him, were friends with him, were coached by him, and loved him, he will always be connected to Christine Blasey Ford, who says their lives intersected for a brief, violent, and bitter moment. She says it, and so to the ones who love her, it must be true. Her testimony did not impress me, but I expected that because it was a mishmash of certainty and doubt, memory and fact. It was the testimonial equivalent of a Picasso painting, all strange shapes and pieces that sort of fit together, and sort of dont. We were told that this is to be expected when women who suffer abuse try to explain themselves and their stories later on. As I said, it didnt impress. And there were very few attempts to examine that story with force and fairness, and I was also not much impressed with Rachel Mitchell and her prosecutorial inquiry. The GOP made a mistake to opt for order instead of the drama that the Democrats engaged. When lives and reputations are at stake, you do not play by the Marquess of Queensberry Rules. What did impress me was Brett Kavanaugh. His voice was a mixture of anger and righteous indignation at what was being done to him, and there was again that horrible sorrow that came out in long pauses, and actual tears. I saw in him every man who has ever been wrongly accused of a sexual offense. I saw the shame, the frustration, the absolute sense of being powerless. He wasnt, though. He might not be confirmed. In fact, that looks much less likely now. But through those real tears, the rage came through like a laser and a sword. And for a moment, I felt as if, finally, one man had found the courage to say my life matters. #MeToo.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman ANOTHER VIEW Where fair play vanishesCompromise can be a great idea, the averaging of demands and agreeing in good faith to make a half-measure work. Like many theories, it doesnt always work in practice. The man with one foot in a fire and the other in a bucket of ice water is, on average, warm. But hes usually not very comfortable. The aptly named Jeff Flake, the senator from Arizona, is on a compromise kick, trying to make averaging work with Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware. Mr. Coons is not necessarily trying to find a compromise because he doesnt have to when he has a partner like Mr. Flake. He can concentrate on getting everything. Its impossible to see how Solomon himself could settle the stalemate between Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford with a compromise. She says the judge tried to rape her, an exceedingly serious crime that not so long was punished at the end of a rope. That ideally required at least a show of evidence. He says he didnt touch her because he wasnt even there, and makes a pretty good case that he is a victim of false witness, which has been a felony nearly everywhere in the West since Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the Ninth Commandment. How could an honest compromise square such a stalemate? A woman cant be only a little bit pregnant, and neither can an allegation of attempted rape be partly true or half a lie. Either the man did what Ford said he did, or he didnt. The mob of elites and those who would like to be thought elite have now concentrated on Judge Kavanaughs judicial temperament. His angry outburst of outrage at what the mob is trying to do to him offends the more delicate members of the mob. They cant understand why anyone would be angry about the attempted destruction of a reputation forged over the years, or the ravishing of the love, respect, honor, esteem and even reverence in which he is held by his wife and his two daughters. What man worthy of being called a man would not react as Judge Kavanaugh has done? Jeff Flake, determined to leave the Senate with his own reputation for soberly assessing facts in shreds and tatters, continued to snipe at Judge Kavanaugh at a public forum Tuesday, calling the judges interactions with senators sharp and partisan. Indeed, his interactions were very sharp and necessarily partisan, expressed with the righteous anger in dealing with false witness the nation once expected of senators. Mr. Flake was run to ground by reporters later who asked him whether his new sharp and partisan criticism of the judge meant that he would not vote to confirm. He appeared flustered by the question, as if he had not thought about it. I didnt say that, he said as aides tried to hustle him away from questions and into a stairwell. I wasnt referring to him. Mr. Flake, who said he dreamed up the seventh FBI background investigation to relieve pressure on himself after he was confronted by angry women in an elevator, does not deal well with close places. For his part, Chris Coons says the Senate must reduce the frequency with which we describe judges as wearing red or blue jerseys. Senators must commit to reviving the practice of confirming nominees based on their qualifications, not ideology. This will require a number of conversions on the Damascus road, but were happy to hear that Sen. Coons is willing to lead the revival in his party caucus.A #MeToo moment for men Washington TimesNAFTA rewrite should boost exportsDonald Trumps approach to trade policy, as with many topics, is different from that of past presidents. His scripts typically include plenty of threats, complaints and drama, designed not just to get his way but to keep the public engaged. Not being drama critics, well let others judge the entertainment merits of his strategy. But when it comes to tangible results, his renegotiation of NAFTA has worked better than his detractors expected. The new United States-MexicoCanada Agreement, or USMCA, came to fruition in cliffhanger talks with Canada that ended Sunday. It retains most of the valuable parts of the 1994 trade deal, which was designed to facilitate more commerce and greater economic integration among the United States, Canada and Mexico. Under it, trade among the three has grown from about $290 million to $1.2 trillion. But as you would expect of an agreement drafted before the internet, email and mobile phone use became part of every facet of life, it was due for a renovation to accommodate changes in these North American economies. The ones agreed on by the three governments in recent months reflect that need. For the Midwest, NAFTA has been a boon. Automakers have gained from being able to make and assemble different components wherever efficiency dictates. With some tweaks which, regrettably, will make it more expensive to build vehicles in Mexico the new accord largely preserves that system. Its no accident that the two biggest customers for Illinois exports are Canada and Mexico, and sales have grown at a solid pace in recent years. That corn you see being harvested when you drive through the countryside? In a normal year, about 40 percent of it is shipped to our North American neighbors. A tariff war with either or both of them, which might have erupted had the talks failed, would have taken a heavy toll on heartland farmers. There are other useful steps, notably stronger protections for intellectual property, which is a particular U.S. strength. Canada and Mexico obtained commitments that they wont be subject to the 25 percent auto duties Trump has threatened to impose on other countries. He won a big concession by persuading Ottawa to take steps to open up its highly protected dairy industry which has long blocked U.S. competition with import quotas and tariffs as high as 300 percent. We take it as good news that Dairy Farmers of Canada immediately denounced the change. Wisconsin and other Midwest dairy farmers, who lost sales after Canada tightened its rules last year, are likely to take a more positive view. Trump correctly dropped his demand to get rid of the independent tribunals set up in the original treaty to resolve disputes about trade policy. Some trade hawks see them as an infringement on American sovereignty, but they serve to ensure a fair process to everyone. Keeping them was perhaps the highest priority for Canadians who otherwise would have to litigate in American courts, where U.S. companies would enjoy a home-field advantage. The panels function to promote free commerce under established rules, something that benefits all three nations. NAFTA created a mostly open continental market that fosters trilateral growth, cooperation and progress and, not least important, Midwestern prosperity. In concluding the new pact, the administration deserves credit for preserving that fundamental achievement. Chicago Tribune Christine M. Flowerscowers1961@gmail.comChristine M.

The students are chosen by their teachers because of their strong work ethic, leadership skills and modeling positive behavior. The students were fortunate enough to hear from the Superintendent of Columbia County Schools, Lex Carswell. Carswell spoke to the wolf pack about service, humility, integrity and ownership, and how each of these characteristics would make them a dynamic individual. He even handed each student one of his business cards with these four words stamped on them. Each student received an RSGA T-shirt and a delicious lunch provided by Olive Garden. The leadership team at Richardson Sixth Grade Academy is looking forward to their upcoming lunches and cant wait to see what other students possess great qualities of leadership.

All of them are ones he intercepted during his seven years in the NFL. Drew Brees. Ben Roethlisberger. Joe Flacco. Gipson hopes to add to his haul Sunday when the Jaguars (3-1) play at unbeat en Kansas City and against second-year sensation Patrick Mahomes Hes so good I hope he throws me one, Gipson said Wednesday. How bout this? Im going to talk him up all week. Hes playing so good that when I pick him off I might have to put his ball up there with Ben Roethlisberger and Drew Brees.

Instead they used the time to kick back, coming together for some fun, friendly games of 7v7. The laid-back day is indicative of what Columbia is trying to accomplish during this bye week as the team tries to rejuvenate at the midway point of one of the toughest schedules in the state. This week comes at the perfect time for the Tigers. Its been fun, safety Sirr Talbott said of the bye week. We just got to stay focused after that loss to Trinity so we got to keep that in our mindset. We got a bad taste in our mouth after the way we lost. But its been funwere just resting and focusing on what we have ahead of us. Last weekends matchup in Jacksonville was a remainder that football indeed is a game of inches. The Tigers fell just short on the potential game-winning two-point conversion, which resulted in their first defeat of the season. Despite back-to-back encroachment calls (putting the Tigers half the distance to the goal line), a botched snap delayed quarterback Jordan Smith from breaking the plane on the keeper. The first finger I point is at myself, head coach Brian Allen said of the blunder. We dont get enough snaps under center, so its not ironic that we fumble the ball under center at the seven inch-line to go up by one. Its not the kids fault, its mine for not getting 20 snaps a day under center, whether youre a shotgun team or not. So I got to make sure I do a good job that when that situation arrives again that were comfortable when get under center, and we dont leave it as a judgement call to the officials. The Tigers reviewed tape from last weeks 31-30 nail-biter on Monday. Since then, Â Columbia has taken things easy, with light activity Tuesday and Wednesday. And the squad gets even more time to relax, getting today and Friday afternoon off.

By BRETT MARTELAssociated PressBATON ROUGE, La. Firstyear LSU quarterback Joe Burrow repeated the term breakout game on Monday as he referred to the most recent showing of the Tigers passing offense. The implication is that going forward, theres a new, higher standard of production for Burrow and Co. a premise that will be tested Saturday in Gainesville, Florida. Floridas defense is not Mississippis defense. And a hostile Swamp will be considerably more disruptive to No. 5 LSU particularly in terms of offensive communication than Tiger Stadium was last weekend against the Rebels. The strength of their team is their defense. LSU coach Ed Orgeron said of the 22nd-ranked Gators. This is going to be the best defense weve faced so far this year.

Coach Doug Marrone announced Wednesday that Fournette and cornerback D.J. Hayden (toe) will miss the road game Sunday. It was a somewhat surprising move considering NFL teams rarely rule out players before Friday. Fournette re-injured his right hamstring in a 31-12 victory against the New York Jets last Sunday. Considering he missed two and a half games after initially tweaking it and came back too soon, the Jaguars (3-1) are expected to be more cautious this time around. No one would be surprised to see Fournette sidelined until after Jacksonvilles bye week, potentially returning Nov. 11 against Indianapolis. The second-year pro from LSU already has missed five of 20 regular-season games and left his only two starts this season because of hamstring tightness.

(AP) New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson will not be suspended by the NFL for two arrests in an eight-month span. The league says Wednesday it completed its investigation into the incidents and the matter has been addressed, and no suspension is being issued. Im thankful and Im glad that the world knows, and people know, like my fans, they dont have to worry, Anderson said after practice. But I already knew. All along, I wasnt expecting that to happen. But, Im just thankful that God blessed me to get through this situation and Im still able to miss no time with my teammates. Anderson pleaded no contest in May to misdemeanor reckless driving in Sunrise, Florida, as part of a deal with prosecutors. The 25-year-old receiver had faced multiple charges, including a felony count of fleeing and eluding police from an incident in January but those charges were previously dismissed. Anderson received six months of probation. Also previously dropped was a charge of resisting arrest at a music festival in Miami Beach in May 2017.NHLEASTERN CONFERENCE Atlantic Division GP W L OT Pts B oston 0 0 0 0 0 Flor ida 0 0 0 0 0 Buffalo 0 0 0 0 0 Otta wa 0 0 0 0 0 Mon treal 0 0 0 0 0 Detr oit 0 0 0 0 0 Tampa Bay 0 0 0 0 0 Tor onto 0 0 0 0 0 Metr opolitan Division GP W L OT Pts Pittsbur gh 0 0 0 0 0 Columbus 0 0 0 0 0 Car olina 0 0 0 0 0 N.Y.

Wilsons fourth ban in less than 13 months will cost him nearly a quarter of the 82-game regular season only five NHL players have been suspended longer for on-ice play and $1.26 million in salary. It was announced just hours before the reigning Stanley Cup champion Capitals were to raise a banner and open their title defense by hosting the Boston Bruins. The right winger, who plays on Washingtons top line with captain Alex Ovechkin, was ejected for the hit on St. Louis Blues center Oskar Sundqvist in the second period of the teams exhibition game on Sunday. Wilson had an in-per son hearing with the NHLs Department of Player Safety in New York on Wednesday.UGA dismisses baseball player amid racist tauntsATHENS, Ga.

Belmont Elementary runs to first at Alligator LakeYOUTH RUNNING PRO SOCCERCristiano Ronaldo denies rape accusations on social mediaBy CHRIS LEHOURITESAssociated PressCristiano Ronaldo denied the accusations of rape against him, saying Wednesday that he had a clear conscience as he awaits the conclusions of an investigation. The 33-year-old Ronaldo has been accused of rape by Kathryn Mayorga. She has said the soccer great raped her in Las Vegas in 2009. I firmly deny the accusations being issued against me. Rape is an abominable crime that goes against everything that I am and believe in. Keen as I may be to clear my name, I refuse to feed the media spectacle created by people seeking to promote themselves at my expense, Ronaldo said in a statement. My clear conscience will thereby allow me to await with tranquility the results of any and all investigations. Mayorga filed a civil lawsuit in Nevada last week seeking monetary damages from Ronaldo, according to lawyer Larissa Drohobyczer.
LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2018 3B DEAR ABBY: I have been in a strong relation ship with my girlfriend for five years. We ar e very much in love. I have told her I dont want to get married and have kids until I have attained some level of success. She understands my desire to be a good pr ovider, but shes 29 and worried about her biological clock if she waits much longer. I work full time, take night classes and Im tr ying to put myself on a promising career path. Is my request unreasonable? We want it to work, but being able to provide at least a middle-class lifestyle is very important to me. -AMBITIOUS GUY IN SAN DIEGO DEAR AMBITIOUS: It would be wonderful if there was a blueprint for success in life and marriage, but too often, life intervenes. You and your girlfriend should have a serious discussion about the future, because you both have to be comfortable with what happens next. If she wants to start a family right away and you feel you cant af ford it, neither of you will be happy. If shes willing to wait another few years to start a family (her biological clock should still be ticking, or she could fr eeze her eggs), then its important you agree about what needs to be in place financially in order for that to happen. DEAR ABBY: My parents like to visit us and bring along their little dog, Tr uffle. We are happy to have them and their dog, however we have an issue. My parents allow Truffle on the furniture. We have a dog and love her to pieces, but feel that furniture is for humans. Because our family likes to relax by sprawling on the couch at times, its not as pleasant once a pet has been lying there. My husband has voiced this concer n but has been ignored. We are going to visit my parents soon, and Im wondering how to handle this. We love everyone and dont want to hurt their feelings. -OFF THE COUCH IN COLORADO DEAR OFF THE COUCH: If you and your husband prefer that animals stay off the furniture in your home, thats your privilege. If your parents choose to ignor e your request, they should stay in a pet-friendly hotel or leave Truffle at home. HOWEVER, when you visit in their home, their rules should apply. DEAR ABBY: Ive had an online friend for three years. We met on a dating/flirt app in high school and recently met in person. We arent currently dating, but its inevitable at this point. Hes funny, down-toear th and good-looking as hell! What he doesnt know is that prior to meeting him, I had a relationship with a woman, and I think Im in love with her. I broke things off with her, but now I miss her more and more. I want to reach out to her, but I want him and me to get closer as well. What should I do? -GIRL WITH OPTIONS IN MAINE DEAR G.W.O.: What you should do is be honest with both of them and let the scenario play out naturally Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com Couple looking to the future differs on starting a family 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): Mix and mingle. It will do you good to get someone elses perspective on whats happening. Listen and offer an objective point of view to gain the most knowledge. An unusual prospect will give you something to think about. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Youll be up against someone who is inconsistent and who tends to make a mountain out of a molehill. Ease into conversations and source out whats behind the comments being made. Dont let someones emotional tactics mislead you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Stick close to home in order to control situations that have the potential to veer out of control. Know what and who you are dealing with. Use your knowledge and intelligence to keep the peace. Dont neglect your chores. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take note of what others are doing and contributing. Offering praise will help develop a strong relationship with someone who can help defend you when faced with opposition. Learn by engaging with people from different backgrounds. Romance will improve your personal life. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Someone will cause a fuss or provoke you to make one. A steady pace forward and a positive attitude will help you ward off controversy that will put a dent in your time and ability to achieve what you set out to do. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Pick up the pace and keep going until you reach your destination. Surround yourself with interesting people who inspire and motivate you. A change in the company you keep or the places you congregate will result in new possibilities. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Dont give in to anyone muscling into your affairs. The less transparent you are, the better the outcome. Stick to what you know, and finish what you start. Its what you leave undone that will come back to haunt you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Stay in the background and observe. The way others carry on will be a telltale sign of the way they will treat you if you let them get to know you better. Play it safe and you wont be sorry. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Take care of personal business. Get your finances in order and any paperwork that needs updating signed, sealed and delivered. How you conduct your business will be what others notice. New prospects will come your way based on your actions. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Hold on to your thoughts. Sharing with someone who tends to be a blabbermouth will cost you emotionally. Look at the big picture and youll know exactly what you have to do in order to bring about positive change. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Dont get angry with someone for taking advantage of you; get angry with yourself for falling for his or her devious ways. Protect against those asking for too much or trying to tempt you into something that isnt right for you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A closer look at what others are doing will give you an idea how to handle a situation you face. Turn a negative into a positive by using someone or something from your past to negotiate your way to victory. Oct. 4: Country singer Leroy Van Dyke is 89. Author Anne Rice is 77.

Im taking this defense over everyone, no matter who were playing against, no matter whos on offense, Gipson said. Weve got the guys over here to do it. This is something that were built for. Were built on speed. Were built on toughness. Were built on that fire and passion. Were going to have a good outing on Sunday. On a defense filled with playmakers and trash-talkers, Gipson might be the best combination of both. He guaranteed a victory against New England in Week 2, then went out and held Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski to two receptions for 15 yards. He insisted New York Jets rookie Sam Darnold would be overwhelmed against Jacksonville last week and vowed to get the secondarys first interception of the season. He did get a pick, but it was overturned because of a holding call on the opposite side of the field. Gipson also mocked Minnesota in the preseason, saying theres no way the Vikings would finish ahead of Jacksonville again in total defense. The Vikings are currently 21st. He also ripped Pro Bowl voting, which made him a fifth alternate last season. All of those guys confused me, Gipson said. It was a travesty. Gipson had 64 tackles, seven pass breakups and four interceptions in 2017, playing mostly in a single-high-safety scheme that forces him to cover sideline to sideline and often makes him the last line of defense. He has 364 tackles and 19 interceptions total. Hes often overshadowed on a defense that includes cornerback Jalen Ramsey, linebacker Telvin Smith and defensive ends Calais Campbell and Yannick Ngakoue. But hes far from overlooked by coaches and teammates. We call him the tight end whisperer, Smith said. Gipson has made it a goal to make the Pro Bowl this season and can add to his resume against Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, who has 23 receptions for 307 yards and three touchdowns. Slowing Kelce might be more important than getting a football with Mahomes name on it. This is what I get excited for, Gipson said. This is going to be huge. Not to make this an individual deal, but you want to win your one-on-one matchups. ... If you feel like youre the best, if you feel like you want to put it out there that youre the best, youve got to go against the best. You start getting the respect you deserve once you start doing it against the big people. GIPSONContinued From 1Bby the best passing performance yet from Burrow, LSUs offense finally looks dialed in. The question is whether such a performance against the reeling Rebels defense carries over against different teams in different venues. Ole Miss gave up 62 points to Alabama before losing 45-16 at LSU. The Rebels rank 126th nationally in total defense, allowing 516 yards per game. By contrast, the Gators have allowed the ninth fewest points in the country at 14 per game, are tied with Kansas for most takeaways in the country with 14 and have allowed touchdowns on only 25 percent of opposing offenses trips inside their 20-yard line. Nonetheless, Burrow asserted that the play-making he and LSU receivers put on display against Ole Miss bodes well for the rest of the season. I knew that we had this game in us because were so talented and Id seen it all summer and all camp, but we hadnt really done it in a game, Burrow said. Thats because we were kind of feeling each other out chemistry-wise, up front, receivers, me, (offensive coordinator Steve) Ensminger. And when you have a game like that, it really boosts your confidence going forward. Burrow began the season with a more conservative approach and still has not thrown an interception while helping the Tigers race to a 5-0 start. For the season, LSU still ranks 78th nationally in total offense (396.6 yards per game), in part because of relatively modest passing production in the first four games. But against Ole Miss, Burrow completed 72 percent of his passes (18 of 25) for 292 yards and three TDs, hitting nine different receivers in the process. The passing game that you saw against Ole Miss is the one I expected all year. I totally believe in coach Ensimgers ability to get people open and call plays, Orgeron said. I believe we have a great set of receivers. We finally got our receivers in the right spot. Justin Jefferson had the best day among the receivers, with 99 yards and two touchdowns, including a 65-yard touchdown on a crossing route with much of the yardage coming after the catch. Freshman JaMarr Chase made a difficult, twisting catch along the sideline for a 21-yard touchdown, fellow freshman Terrace Marshall had a 52-yard catch and junior Stephen Sullivan caught five passes for 50 yards. Even seldom-used sophomore Racey McMath got in the act, making the first two catches of his career for 42 yards. Those guys are coming alive, so we have more guys we can give the ball to, Orgeron said. LSU rushed for 281 yards against the Rebels with eight different players, including Burrow, carrying the ball. But LSU already had run well from the start of the season, led by Nick Brossettes 409 yards and five TDs. Like Burrow, Brossette expected to eventually see LSU exhibit more balance, based on the potential hed seen at practice. Its just a matter of getting it down and communicating with each other and getting comfortable with it, Brossette said. Were improving each and every week.
