Thanks in advance for your patience.Monstrous Michael looms Hurricanes force expected to be felt here Wednesday.By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comHurricane Michael will be more of a problem for Columbia County not less if the storm slows down before mid-week, Â the local emer gency management chief said Monday. If Michael gains speed between now and mid-week, the storm is more likely to keep west and stay farther away from the Lake City area, said Columbia County Emergency Management Director Shayne Morgan. If the storm slows down, it has a better chance of moving eastward on a more direct path toward this area. And impacting us, Morgan said. Were kind of monitoring it right now. A lot of the impact that we face as Columbia County is going to depend on the exact path the storm takes.

The brunt of Michaels impact here is expected to be felt Wednesday and Thursday, Morgan said. Based on a forecast from the National Weather Service in Jacksonville as of 8 a.m. Monday, Morgan said county residents can expect Michael to bring sustained tropical storm winds and hurricane-force gusts. Columbia County Emergency Management released an update later Monday afternoon, saying the wind speed is estimated to be between 39 and 73 miles per hour, with initial winds anticipated to arrive early Wednesday morning. Rain was expected to average two to three inches. Fortunately, weve been in a dry spell. So we have that to our advantage, Morgan said. Were hoping the rain just gets soaked up. Morgan wouldnt say whether he expects Michael will be severe enough to cause extensive property damage or worse. Each storm has its own personality, he said. Im going to withhold comment on that until after the fact. But Gov. Rick Scott on Monday called Hurricane Michael a monstrous and potentially deadly storm. Weve never seen a storm like this hit this (the Northwest) part of our state, Scott said after a briefing Monday afternoon at the Pasco County Emergency Operations Center in New Port Richey. Michael has the potential to be the strongest storm in the region since Hurricane Eloise swept across Bay County in September 1975 with 110 mph winds. Hurricane Opal carried 100 mph winds when it hit Pensacola Beach in October 1995. Hurricane Ivan made landfall near Gulf Shores, Ala., at 105 mph in September 2004. And Hurricane Dennis was at 105 mph when it hit Santa Rosa Island in July 2005. As of Monday, local offi cials were expecting the county to activate its Emergency Operations Center today. The Columbia County Commission called an emergency meeting for 11:15 a.m. today at the EOC building on Lake City Avenue. The county had not yet released any updates about emergency shelters as of 6 p.m. Monday. On Monday, county Public Works Director Kevin Kirby said he was organizing his staff into teams and assigning them zones to patrol and look for damage. We put a firm plan together, Kirby said. Hurricane Irma in September 2017 caused large-scale and long-lasting power outages, leaving neighborhoods without electricity for days or longer. City Public Works Director Thomas Henry said he drove around town Monday, checking to make sure storm drains were clear. Making sure were prepared, Henry said. A few people have put tree limbs or bags of lawn clippings or other debris on the roads or near curbs, Henry said, which can wash into storm drains and clog them up. Itd be a big help if they wouldnt do that, he said. The city has not yet discussed distributing sandbags, Henry said. Officials are keeping an eye on the storm to decide if that might be necessary. I got a bad feeling its going to do that one course and turn to the east, he said. And if it turns to the east, its By CARL MCKINNEYcmckinney@lakecityreporter.comAs Hurricane Michael approached Monday afternoon, the National Weather Services latest forecasts gave Columbia County a chance of showers and thunderstorms today, including a possible thunderstorm after noon. But the worst of the storm is expected to hit the county Wednesday and continue into Thursday. Todays daytime forecast is cloudy, with a high near 83 degrees. East winds are expected to range from seven to 13 miles per hour. The chance of precipitation is 60 percent. Tonight through early Wednesday morning, there is a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mostly before 2 a.m. Its expected to be mostly cloudy during this window, with a low around 74 degrees. East winds should be around 7 mph. Tropical storm conditions are possible Wednesday, which has a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms. Some storms could produce heavy rain. During the day, the high should be near 89 degrees, with an 80 percent chance of precipitation. At night, it should be cloudy. The low should be around 74 degrees, with a 60 percent chance of precipitation. Shows are likely and a thunderstorm is possible Thursday. It should be cloudy during the day, with a high near 86 degrees and a 60 percent chance of precipitation. Thursday night has a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms.

Monday, the local company held its official brick breaking ceremony at 4785 U.S. Highway 90. The site previously housed a branch of Columbia Bank. We went through a lot of preparation with Stephen Douglas with DMC construction and today begins a 13-week journey of renovating the old Columbia Bank building into the Cheek and Scott Premiere Healthcare Center, said Jeffrey Scott, president of Cheek and Scott Drugs Inc. The current Cheek and Scott facility, located in Stone Gate Plaza, will move into the repurposed bank building. Scott said the tentative plan is to open in January 2019. The building will be used for our healthcare center, Scott said. The excitement to us is that we want to provide functional medicine. In that we provide a traditional pharmacy, but also weight loss, essential oils and natural remedies, educational classes on diabetes and cooking. The services provided and the number of employees will increase as a result. For us this is part of the joy of people enjoying treatment, instead of enduring treatment, Scott said. Were extending services and we felt like this might be more convenient for our patients. We can introduce some state of the art things here. Eric Johnson, vice president and pharmacy manager of the Lake City Cheek and Scott location, said he is excited about the new facility. This is definitely the leading edge of healthcare, as far as a pharmacy is concerned, he said. Its a lot, and when you put it all under one roof, its pretty exciting.

Doherty lived for a year with Etheridge and her daughters, Nancy, then a ninth-grader, and Tere Etheridge Hoechst. Tere was also a senior at CHS in the Class of It was as though she had never been away, said Betty Etheridge, now 90. A lifetime has passed since Doherty strolled the sidewalks of Lake City. One of her keepsakes from her time at CHS is a presidential physical fitness award signed by then President Richard M. Nixon, she said. In the meantime, Doherty has been married, and has children and grandchildren. She taught English and Portuguese at high schools and universities in Cordoba City, and lived for nearly a decade in Brazil. One of 10 students chosen for the American Field Service Exchange Student program, Doherty said the visit to Lake City was her first overseas trip stopping first in New York City before making her way south to Jacksonville 49 years ago. When I came down from the plane I said, Hi Mom, said Doherty. That was my new family. It was also how Doherty addressed Etheridge Monday at Etheridge Furniture off SW Main Boulevard. It was amazing, it was like a flash for me being there, you know, Doherty said. She arrived in Jacksonville again on Sept. 16. Since then shes met with former instructors and classmates to take walks down a memory lane that has changed little. Everything was recognizable Doherty said. I was glad. The only thing I insisted on was going downtown. Etheridge was glad to oblige, but on condition that Doherty start her walk closer to downtown than Doherty wanted. She wanted to walk from my house, Etheridge said. They settled on the VA Hospital. Were not used to taking the car that much, Doherty said, adding Cordoba City, as Argentinas second largest city, was heavily congested with traffic. Now Doherty has about two weeks left to soak in the sights and relive old times before returning to the hilly region of Argentina she calls home. VISITContinued From 1A going to come to us. Supt. Lex Carswell said he expected a decision on school closures would be made some time today. Parents will be contacted directly, and announcements will also be made through the newspaper, radio stations and social media, Carswell said. As of Monday afternoon, storm predictions kept changing, he said. Some people are telling me its not going to be that big of a deal, some people are telling me its a real big deal, Carswell said. Parts of the Suwannee Valley will start seeing an impact Tuesday evening, the Suwannee River Water Management District said Monday. The district issued an emergency order for Alachua, Baker, Bradford, Columbia, Dixie, Franklin, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Jefferson, Lafayette, Levy, Madison, Suwannee, Taylor and Union counties. The order outlines response measures and eases regulatory guidelines to allow for the aid of emergency assistance to private citizens and local governmental entities, the announcement sates. Response measures include the use of pumps to move water across drainage basins, cleanup of drainage systems, repair of structures to prevent flooding and the creation of drainage systems to provide flood relief. Gov. Rick Scott on Monday warned residents of the Panhandle and the Big Bend region to seriously plan for the impact of the rapidly developing Hurricane Michael, which is expected to reach Florida by mid-week with maximum sustained winds of 100 mph. Scott said emergency officials are doing everything they can to get everybody ready. But, as Michael is expected to bring storm surge, rains, flash flooding and tornadoes, Scott said the storms northern speed through the Gulf of Mexico is different from hurricanes that have hit Florida the past couple of years. Scott asked for President Donald Trump to declare a pre-landfall emergency for 35 counties, including Columbia and Suwannee. As of Monday, Michael was expected to make landfall as a Category 3 hurricane in the Panhandle. The News Service of Florida contributed to this story.

Duncan had an active arrest in Georgia for violation of probation on a driving charge, but it advised in-state pickup only with no extradition. Duncan was previously stopped in August for an equipment violation. Deputies say they found less than 20 grams of marijuana in the vehicle that time, but no charges were filed. After Duncan and the second occupant stepped out of the vehicle Sunday, a deputy saw small bits of marijuana on the second occupants shirt, according to the report. Duncan had a small plastic bag containing meth in his sock, which he claimed he was holding for a friend, according to the report. The second occupant said he or she had just rolled a blunt, but the deputy hadnt found it yet then pointed out where it is. Due to the cooperation, he or she will not face charges, according to the report. Duncan was taken to jail without incident. POTContinued From 1A THREATSContinued From 1A
Watch out, stay calm, dont go the way of the French Revolution that replaced tyrants with worse tyrants, chopping off innocent heads by way of self-righteous evil. Thats what some might want to say to the #MeToo movement as it besmirched its truly noble objectives by some telling us that Brett Kavanaugh was guilty until he impossibly proves he isnt, that women never lie, that masculinity is toxic and that trusting old, white men is swimming with the sharks. Sexual assault is obviously an abomination that must be fought, and it was impossible not to sympathize with Kavanaughs accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, as she testified at a Senate hearing on national TV. She was clearly troubled, emotionally wrought, almost surely a victim of some horror at some time. But her story bounces all over the place and has no corroboration at all. None. Among those she said were at a party where attempted rape occurred was a best friend who gently says, well, no, she was never there, and there is almost unquestionably nothing there in some of the yarns of others who have lined up behind Dr. Ford. Nevertheless, when you turn on the TV or read an op-ed piece, theres almost always a #MeToo feminist saying a victim is a victim if she says she is a victim, that evidence is no more necessary than a bulldozer to lift a toothpick and that we must presume the guilt of the guy no matter what the filthy liar says. Tell that to Gregory Counts and VanDyke Perry, two men accused of kidnapping and rape by a woman who this year admitted she made it up after DNA tests proved as much. The thing is that Counts, arrested at age 19, had already spent 26 years in prison, and Perry, arrested at 21, had spent 11 years in prison. According to The New York Times, the womans testimony was inconsistent to begin with, and guess what. This kind of thing is not all that unusual, and meanwhile we have college campuses at which a male student can be expelled and have his life ruined without the refuge of due process if a female student has at him. While long denied equal rights, women in America seem to have been stronger than women almost anyplace else in the world. Alexis de Tocqueville, the great French philosopher who wrote about America in the early 19th century, is quoted as saying an American woman thinks for herself, speaks with freedom ... is full of reliance on her own strength, is neither timid nor ignorant, is happily bold and is always mistress of herself. Women did ultimately pursue their rights, too, did get the vote, still lost out in other arenas but kept pushing on to the point where now, as one example of advancement, they outnumber men in our colleges and universities. One thing they fought for in the 20th century was sexual equality with men. That gave us the sexual revolution, where many old norms were shoved aside, leading to freer sex hookup culture on campuses and to more male abuse. And so women tried to save themselves. While people have said the #MeToo movement is unlike anything before it, it isnt. There was a less flamboyant but still meaningful version in the 1990s, especially coming down on bosses taking advantage of employees until President Bill Clinton was exposed as a leader of the Casanova pack. Then many liberal feminists put politics before their central cause and defended his outrages, often asking critics, Havent you ever lied about sex? Interestingly, one analysis I ran across says the new #MeToo movement arose because his wife was defeated in her race for president by a man with Clintonesque depravities. With the public shaming of so many celebrities and others, the movement has probably already lessened threats to women, and thats good. But zealotry isnt good. It can breed assorted bigotries and lead to different kinds of abuses, societal unfairness, indecency, to a figurative guillotine that may not literally cut off heads but can cut off fundamental human rights for those ghastly creatures called men.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman ANOTHER VIEW Dems need a good party cleansingDemocrats, at one time, at one President John F. Kennedy time, for instance, may have been able to make a sensible case for serving as a party that puts its people first, its country at the forefront, and its compass fixed directly on helping the downtrodden and forgotten of society. But those days are long gone. Look at the Democratic Party Platform of 1960, versus the Democratic Party Platform of 2016. On civil defense, the 1960 circa Dems were adamant, a strong and effective civil defense is an essential element. On far-left ideologies, to include communism, the Democrats of decades gone by wrote, To the rules of the Communist World: We believe your Communist ideology to be sterile, unsound, and doomed to failure. We believe that your children will reject the intellectual prison in which you seek to confine them, and that ultimately they will choose the eternal principles of freedom. The times, they have changed. The party of Barack Obama, the part of Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party of 2016 brought forth an altogether different kind of platform. Section One reads, Raise Incomes and Restore Economic Security for the Middle Class. Section Two: Create Good-Paying Jobs. Section Three: Fight for Economic Fairness and Against Inequality. And Section Four: Bring Americans Together and Remove Barriers to Opportunities, followed by the subheads of Guaranteeing Civil Rights, Guaranteeing Womens Rights, Guaranteeing Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Rights, and Guaranteeing Rights for People with Disabilities. Its not until page 40 of the platform the Democrats of 2016 get around to addressing national defense, the military and the war on terrorism and then only in the most globally minded, social justice of manners. Democrats welcome and honor all Americans who want to serve and will continue to fight for their equal rights and recognition, the platforms A Strong Military section read. We are proud of the repeal of Dont Ask, Dont Tell and we commit ourselves to insuring fair treatment for LGBT veterans. What a switch a few decades brings. While good for Republicans and both polls and anecdotal evidence certainly show that even the more independent voters around the nation detest how Kavanaughs been treated by the left this far-left shift of the Democrats leading to thuggery in the streets is damaging to America as a whole, in the long-term. Simply put: A country run by chaos rather than law and order is a country slated to crumble. Even Democrats running high on political ambition ought to see the sense of returning to more constitutional times and adopting more measured, Founding Father-type principles. Democrats, for the good of the nation, need to scrub the radical elements from their midst and get back on board with putting America first. Its not just a campaign slogan, courtesy of President Donald Trump; putting America first is a basic constitutional principle that Democrats of yesteryear seemed to understand. Todays Democratic Party should revisit some of their past platforms and revise accordingly.Is #MeToo itself a threat?Its not distracted driving, its selfish drivingYou are on your way to work and waiting at a red light behind two other cars at an intersection. The light turns green, but the car at the front of the line just sits there, not moving. After 8 to 10 seconds, those behind the first car begin blowing their horns. Only then does the first car move. Meanwhile four other cars that have pulled up behind you cant reach the intersection before the light turns red again. Shortly afterward you get on an interstate that leads into the city and your place of employment. Traffic is heavy but moving along at the speed limit of 55 mph. Then you come upon a car in the left lane that is going at least 20 mph under the speed limit. It crawls along even though it is at least 15 empty car lengths behind the next car in that lane. Other cars coming up to this car in the fast lane try to move over to the right lane to get by it. Meanwhile the driver in this car is looking down at his lap much of the time, glancing up at the windshield every five seconds or so to check on the car in front of him. These are but two examples of what has been labeled distracted driving. However, the expression distracted driving is only a euphemism for selfish driving. In each case the drivers attention is not pulled away by something outside his immediate control, such as a sudden flash of lightning, an ambulance siren, an accident sitting on the left shoulder or a toddler crying in the back seat. No, in each case the driver deliberately chooses to look down and focus on his device, where he is texting and checking e-mails, even though doing this obstructs other drivers and increases the risk of an accident. So-called distracted driving is just one example of a pervasive problem on our roads today, namely disregard for the rights of others, including their safety. This disregard manifests itself in road rage incidents, tailgating, drivers who abruptly cut in front of cars in the next lane with little space between the two, and drivers who purchase loud turbo mufflers that purposely disturb the peace with ear-splitting howling that assaults the personal space of anyone within two to three blocks of the car (e.g. pedestrians, shoppers), including residents of homes near that street or highway. Studies conducted by the National Safety Council and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration since 2010 have shown that those who text while driving are at between 8 and 23 times greater risk of having an accident. This is not surprising. It takes an average of five seconds to read or send a text while driving, and at 55 mph a car travels 100 yards in five seconds, the entire length of a football field. As a result, in 2015, nearly 400,000 people nationwide were injured in crashes involving a distracted driver, and nearly 3,500 of them were killed. Lower speed limit not a panacea for traffic deaths Nonetheless, even with frequent messages in the media on the dangers of distracted driving, laws prohibiting texting while driving are not taken seriously and are not strictly enforced. Indeed, the internet communication resources that are now standard equipment on the dashboard of many new cars in 2018 cater to a drivers restless craving for an endless stream of digital stimuli throughout the day, even when behind the wheel. Safe, responsible driving is of secondary importance to the immediate gratification afforded by the on-board internet access portals in cars today. The widespread indifference to this problem resembles perceptions of drunken driving 50 years ago. Driving while intoxicated did not carry the same legal risks as is the case today, risks such as the likely revocation of ones license, stiff fines, even detention and incarceration. This was before the advent of Mothers Against Drunk Driving in 1980 and their successful national campaign to reform and strengthen drunk driving laws and their enforcement. A similar transformation is needed with respect to distracted driving. We are on a slippery slope. Unless we stop and reverse the trend toward increased digital addiction behind the wheel, one shudders to think what the new norm will be for driver behavior in five years.

TIGERS SATURDAY, 6 p.m. Just the beginning FGC basketball preparing for first season since 1995Photos by ERIC JACKSON/Lake City ReporterFGC guard Tay Cobb dunks the ball at the end of practice on Monday. Cobb formerly starred at Melbourne Central. By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comTwenty three long years have past since a basketball team took the floor at Florida Gateway College, leaving fans to wonder if the once-heralded program would ever come back. Their wishes have finally been answered the wait is over. The Timberwolves are set to begin their first campaign since 1995, with their first exhibition game coming against Edward Waters this weekend. FGC players have used the last couple months to get acclimated and familiar with college life. With official practices starting last week, the Timberwolves are in full-go for the season. Were still trying to get this transition down, FGC coach Charles Ruise said. Theres things that they did in high school that, at the college level, youre not going to be able to get away with. Now its more about paying attention to detail, executing and doing the things it takes to adjust to this level. Despite its first season in decades, FGC hopes to make some noise early on with the help of three former Columbia Tigers in big-man Jamel Jackson, David Morse and guard Trey Miller, who was the last addition to the 2018-2019 recruiting class. Jackson, Morse and Miller will be backed up by nine other freshman standouts in Kenny Brown Jr. (Palmetto), Diamond Smith (Gainesville), Jaiden Lee (Miami-Southridge), Elexpe Johnson (Wakulla), Bryan OBoyle (North Port), Jermaine Graham (Manatee), Caleb Johnson (Central), Tay Cobb (Melbourne Central) and Nathaniel Henderson (MiamiNorland). Ruise, a former guard at FGC, took over the reins at his alma mater in June after the school parted ways with ex-coach Kevin Fields.

Plenty of long balls. Another deep run in the postseason. Next stop, the NL Championship Series for the third year in a row. Machado drove in four runs three of them with a seventh-inning shot into the leftfield seats and the Dodgers finished off the Atlanta Braves with a 6-2 victory Monday in the NL Division Series. There are so many expectations put on him, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. We have a lot of good players, but I cant say enough about his focus and preparedness. Los Angeles took the best-of-five series 3-1 and advanced to face the Brewers. Game 1 is Friday night in Milwaukee. Coming off a tense victory in Game 3, the Baby Braves grabbed the lead on pinch-hitter Kurt Suzukis two-run single in the fourth. But David Freese, the 2011 World Series MVP with St. Louis, came through again in the postseason. He delivered a pinch-hit single in the sixth off Brad Brach, driving home Cody Bellinger and Yasiel Puig for a 3-2 lead. Machado finished off Atlanta in the seventh, launching a 1-2 pitch from rookie Chad Sobotka over the Dodgers bullpen his teams eighth homer of the series. A free-agent-to-be acquired from Baltimore in July, Machado also had a run-scoring double in the first. He had only three hits in the series, but two of them were homers, along with six RBIs. Im just sitting here enjoying everything, enjoying the ride, Machado said. Ryan Madson (1-0) earned the win by getting the final two outs in the fifth to escape a bases-loaded jam. The Braves final gasp came in the eighth, when Lucas Dudas drive into the second deck in right drifted foul with two on against Kenta Maeda. Duda flied out to end the inning, and Atlanta went down quietly in the ninth. The Dodgers celebrated briefly and posed for pictures in the middle of SunTrust Park, but NLDS continued on 6B B1

Coach Doug Marrone says SeferianJenkins will have core muscle surgery but could return later in the season. Grant will miss the rest of the year with a foot injury. Seferian-Jenkins has 11 receptions for 90 yards and a touchdown. Grant has 13 carries for 40 yards to go along with nine receptions for 67 yards. The Jaguars (3-2) likely will add a running back this week since starter Leonard Fournette (hamstring) is unlike ly to play at Dallas on Sunday. Fournette has missed three games this season because of a strained right hamstring, leaving T.J. Yeldon to handle the bulk of the workload. Panthers goalie Luongo out 2-4 weeks with knee injury SUNRISE (AP) Florida Panthers goaltender Roberto Luongo will miss two to four weeks with a sprained medial collateral ligament in his right knee. Coach Bob Boughner announced the injury Monday, adding Luongo will not need surgery. The Panthers placed Luongo on injured reserve Sunday after he left their season opener Saturday night. Luongo started 33 games for Florida last season and went 18-11-2 with a 2.47 goals-against average and .929 save percentage. He missed more than two months with a groin injury last season. The 39-year-old is signed through the 2021-22 season at a salary cap hit of $5.3 million. Florida recalled goalie Michael Hutchinson from Springfield of the American Hockey League and will lean on James Reimer in Luongos absence. Bougher says the Panthers are confident in Reimer because of his starting experience in the NHL. Neck injury ends playing career of Miami WR Ahmmon Richards CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) Miami wide receiver Ahmmon Richards career is effectively over because of a disabling neck injury that will make playing foot ball a too high-risk proposition for him going forward. Miami announced the news Sunday, without revealing the exact nature of the injury or how it happened. The announcement came one day after the 16th-ranked Hurricanes rallied to win their annual rivalry game with Florida State. Richards spent that game on the side line, jumping and celebrating with teammates as Miami pulled off its biggest comeback win since 2003. That will be his role going forward. Richards career ends with 74 catches for 1,382 yards and six touchdowns. Im extremely appreciative of the universitys athletic training and medical staffs for diagnosing this injury, and to the football coaches and staff for always putting my health first, Richards said.LOCAL PREP ROUNDUPFort Whites volleyball team defeated Hamilton County in five sets (25-18, 25-17, 23-25, 23-25, 15-9) on Monday night.

LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER ADVICE & COMICS TUESDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2018 3B DEAR ABBY: I have been married for 30 years. Although my husband and I are both positive people, we have not had a happy marriage. He leads the life of a bachelor, including sex with other women and unilateral decision-making. Hes outgoing, generous and well-liked. Im a home body who often feels lonely and rejected. Outsiders would be sur prised at the true nature of our relationship. W e have been to counseling, but it didnt help. Why do I stay in this marriage? Whats wrong with me? Are there others like me? -INCREDULOUS IN INDIANA DEAR INCREDULOUS: You wouldnt have stayed married to your husband if you didnt derive some benefit from it. Because counseling didnt change the dynamic between you and your husband doesnt mean you shouldnt have some independently. Your problem may be lack of self-esteem or fear of being alone, a problem shared by many women in dysfunctional marriages. If youre sincere about finding the answers to your questions, they await you in the office of a licensed therapist. DEAR ABBY: My older sister recently passed away after a 22-year battle with lupus. She beat the odds for so long, and even gave us the miracle that is her son. Logically, I understand that medically there was nothing left the doctors could do, but emotionally I feel like I killed her because I went along with the doctors. Is it normal to feel this guilt? I have nightmar es every night now because I hear her last words. I see how she was both on and off life support. When I make myself eat, I overeat. But honestly, I could easily go back to never eating like I did before. Is all of this normal for the grief process? -FEELING GUILTY IN OREGON DEAR FEELING GUIL TY: Yes, what youre experiencing is normal -to a degree. However, if the nightmares and feelings of guilt persist, discuss them with a grief counselor or a religious adviser. You alluded to having gone along with the doctors. If by that you mean you agreed that your sister should r eceive palliative care at the end, you did her a favor, not a disservice. DEAR ABBY: I dated this woman for almost a year. It ended when she gave me an ultimatum: convert to her religion or walk. She is Pentecostal, and I am Catholic. W e are both deeply rooted to our own churches. A few months have gone by. She still has deep feelings for me, but I dont know if I feel the same way because of her ultimatum. One of us must convert or we wont be able to move forward. What should I do? -CONVERTING IN THE SOUTH DEAR CONVERTING: Because you are deeply rooted in your Catholicism and no longer sure you feel the same way about her, let her go so she can find a good Pentecostal husband. Religion is something a person must believe in, not switch to please someone else. Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com Opposites share long marriage despite leading separate lives 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): Fight fire with fire. Intensity coupled with strong beliefs will overpower anyone trying to stand in your way. Plan your actions and execute them with precision to get the results you want. A steady pace will lead to positive changes. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Youll be faced with all sorts of options that will require you to be accurate. Dealing with matters that concern co-workers, employers, or government, financial or medical institutions will require consistency. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Step up and offer to help others. Taking on tasks that allow you to show your strengths will have an impact on others. Some will be jealous of what you have accomplished, and others will offer suggestions that will help further your goals. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Keep an open mind. If you are angry or upset, a decision you make will lead to regret. Back up and rethink your strategy carefully before you proceed. Concentrate on personal gains that will enhance your life. Romance is encouraged. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Think about the outcome before you make a move. Its in your power to choose the right thing to do. Live up to your promises, and youll avoid being called out by someone who is counting on you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Taking a serious step in a direction that encourages personal stability will give you a closer look at the path you should pursue. Improvements to the way you live will also lead to friendships that are beneficial. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A positive change to the way you handle your money, health and relationships with others will give you a burst of energy and ease your stress. Dont let anyone criticize or take away from what youve accomplished. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Be careful while traveling or dealing with someone who tends to be argumentative. Stay focused on the changes you want to make and the people who have helped you in the past. Dont share your personal secrets, or rumors will spread quickly. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Youve got more going for you than you realize. Call in favors and make plans that will encourage greater prosperity. Taking care of someone elses affairs will be time-consuming but can serve as a reminder of how to conduct your own more efficiently. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Dont trust what others tell you. If you want the facts, go to the source. Changes based on an assumption will lead to regret. An unusual opportunity should be taken advantage of if you feel its in your best interest. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): There is money to be made. Go over your personal investments or check out an opportunity that interests you. Negotiations will lead to unexpected benefits if you handle matters on your own. Say no to any sort of indulgent behavior. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Take a broader look at whats going on. Consider whats true before getting involved in a joint venture. Stick to what you know and do best instead of partnering with someone you know little about. Oct. 9: R&B singer Nona Hendryx is 74.

6B TUESDA Y, OCTOBER 9, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER ment his system with players he inherited from Fields. The former Baker County High School coach says the Timberwolves are locked in right now. It wasnt tough at all, he said of the transition. Once I finally got a chance to meet all the kids, it was a [great] response. The way they received myself and the program that I was presenting to them, its been a great transition. They bought in right away. Ruise says it helps that him and his entire coaching staff all played at FGC. With that, the players are getting a first-hand account of what it takes to be a Timberwolf. This first recruiting class in 23 years looks to restore the glory FGCs basketball team once had a program that hoisted the national title in 1970. Ruise, though, says recapturing that prominence wont happen overnight or even in one season. I dont want to beat them down with that, he said of the past accolades. I just want them to understand the expectation of our work ethic, thats what really represents what was established here in the past. There was guys who played with blood, sweat and tears and really put it in. So if we can come out in that fashion, and do what were supposed to do, I think well represent what this program is all about. WOLVESContinued From 1Bthey have much bigger goals. Los Angeles is seeking its first World Series title since 1988. We all know that theres a lot more work to be done, Robert said. We have eight more wins to go. Atlantas return to the postseason for the first time since 2013 yielded a familiar result. The Braves have lost nine straight playoff appearances, their last victory coming 17 long years ago against a team that is no longer in the National League. Since a sweep of Houston Astros in the 2001 NL Division Series, October has been a month of misery for the Braves. Getting back to the playoffs ahead of schedule after a massive rebuild, Atlanta simply didnt have the experience, depth or power to stick with the power-packed Dodgers. Los Angeles had a franchise-record 235 homers during the regular season and hit eight more against the Braves, accounting for 14 of its 20 runs. Theyre a very powerful team, Braves manager Brian Snitker said. Its what theyve done all year is hit home runs. Were not built like that yet. Los Angeles also benefited from some shaky Atlanta defense during its go-ahead inning. Puig kept the sixth going with a popup down the line off Jonny Venters (0-1) that fell between second baseman Ozzie Albies and right fielder Nick Markakis. Puig stole second without drawing a throw and came home when backup shortstop Charlie Culberson failed to knock down Freeses sharp grounder up the middle. A super sub during the regular season, Culberson had to start in the playoffs because of an injury to regular Dansby Swanson.
