Scott Lee Thompson, 47, died in a shooting on Frontier Street Thursday night but investigators consider him more suspect than victim, said Columbia County Sheriffs Office spokesperson Murray Smith. Investigators from CCSO and the Third Circuit State Attorneys Office found no probable cause for arrest when they responded to the scene around 7:20 p.m. Thursday, Smith said. Thompsons stepson appeared to be the victim of domestic violence, Smith said. Third Circuit State Attorney Jeff Domestic violence suspected; charges unlikely to be filed. Thompson SHOOTING continued on 2A Woman shot; suspect jailed after standoffBy COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comThe area had just dodged a major hurricane, but a storm brewing between occupants of a rural mobile home swept up a local SWAT team who talked a shooting suspect out of a trailer around 3 a.m. Thursday. Luckette Marie Wilson-Sadler, 33, was arrested on aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and resisting officers, Suwannee County Sheriffs Office reports show. Sheriff Sam St. John said their SWAT team was called to the rural Suwannee County residence with a Lake City address early Oct. 11 in response to calls of a female shooting victim.

Columbia County residents have descended on the area in the wake of Hurricane Michael to offer help in the form of food, water and other supplies. COREY ARWOOD/Lake City ReporterA cover has now been welded onto a city manhole to keep it in place. The hole had been open for the last four months.By COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comCity officials have capped an open manhole permanently, this time, they say that residents have complained about for two years. Homeowners off SE Church Street and SE Pennsylvania Avenue, who called the open manhole a dangerous eyesore and a hazard for school kids, said the city had previously provided just temporary fixes and flimsy barricades. This week they got relief when the city provided what it said was a permanent solution. It was fixed Monday, said Lake City Public Works Director Thomas Henry.

Thanks for reading. Siegmeister said that the shooting was likely justified. Our first impression is the young man was acting in self defense, Siegmeister said. According to Florida Department of Corrections records, Thompson was sentenced in Columbia County to five years in prison in May 2015. Thompson received credit toward the sentence for 296 days served in Columbia County Detention Facility, court records show. He was released Wednesday. In 2013, Third Circuit prosecutors abandoned charges against Thompson in two separate battery cases, one of which involved a pregnant woman, according to court records. Thompson was involved in three family court proceedings in Columbia County between 2012 and 2014, twice for domestic violence and once for repeat violence. In 1996, the Third Circuit dismissed a plethora of misdemeanor charges against Thompson two counts of harassing a witness, victim or informant; one count of stalking; one count of trespassing after warning; and one count of making a harassing phone call. SHOOTINGContinued From 1A way, Henry said. To repair the manhole, public work crews brought a portable welder to the intersection and welded a top on the drain. We did it permanently this time, Henry said. Before, he said, they had tried to remedy the matter with a few spot welds. We dont whats running over it, and why it keeps on breaking it, Henry said. He said that whatever it is, is heavy, and guessed it could be anything from a school bus to a garbage truck. He said there were other storm drains, similarly constructed, that bore the same signs of wear as that of SE Church Street and SE Pennsylvania Avenue. Weve had problems with that area, Henry said. Its all due to them corners. The drains are very old, Henry said, and are made with cast iron, long obsolete. Of the latest solution, Henry said, It should be an OK fix. However, he said he would like anyone who sees anyone run over a storm drain to call the Public Works Department and report the matter. New City Manager Joe Helfenberger was notified of the matter by the Lake City Reporter on Oct. 5 and put the city response in motion. Its great to get to get back to the citizens the results, Helfenberger said. Residents say the manhole cover had been missing for the last four months, and that the drain had been intermittently open for at least two years. MANHOLEContinued From 1A Before she left she told us who shot her, and she was still inside the resi dence, St. John said. The victim was a woman Wilson-Sadler had been in an argument with, St. John said. The deadly weapon in the defendants possession was a small caliber rifle, the SCSO probable cause statement said, a .22 caliber firearm, according to St. John. Wilson-Sadler lives on SW Plum Court in Fort White, the report shows. St. John said there were around seven men and women at the residence located in the 3000 block of 220th Place outside Lake City. Everybody came out but the shooter, St. John said. After nearly two hours negotiating with WilsonSadler over a loud speaker system, she emerged. St. John said the victim sustained non-life threatening injuries and was transported to UF Health Shands in Gainesville. The shooting stemmed from an argument between the women, but its not clear what it was about. Another arrest came out of the incident when officers walked through the residence after apprehending Wilson-Sadler, St. John said. Probable cause reports show James Phillip Rhea, 44, was in possession of a stolen firearm. Rhea lives at the home where the shooting took place. It was confirmed through Suwannee County Sheriffs Office Communications Center that the serial number, make and caliber of the firearm matched a firearm that was stolen, the report said.

John Leonard Bowen Jr., 42, of SE Doritha Street, and his girlfriend, Suncherra Cecelia Beane, 48, of SE Sharon Lane, both remain jailed in connection with the case. Bowen, who was booked into jail Thursday morning just after 11 a.m., is being held on $25,000 bond, while Beane, who was booked at 10:35 a.m. Thursday, has a $10,000 bond. Both face third-degree grand theft charges. According to Columbia County Sheriffs Office reports, Deputy Cpl. Chris Parker was dispatched to Turn Key Motors, 140 SE Cider Terrace, around 5:44 p.m. Monday in reference to a theft. When speaking to the owners and the receptionist, Parker was told Bowen came to the dealership around 4:17 p.m., but one of the owners was busy helping other customers and by the time he was free, Bowen was ready to leave. After Bowen left, one of the owners noticed the dealerships money bags containing sales tax cash was missing from the front desk. After reviewing security footage video, the owner reported seeing Bowen shut the front door and then stuff the money bag down his shorts while his girlfriend, Beane, watched the door, reports said. The bag reportedly contained more than $4,500 in cash from sales tax and additional cash. The video reportedly showed Bowen and Beane were left in the main office by themselves briefly. Bowen walked to the main exterior entrance of the office and closed the door, the report said. He and Beane then approached the desk in the main office and Beane walked past and stood in the threshold between the main customer area and rear offices while Bowen grabbed the money bag and stuffed it into the front of his pants, the report stated. Bowen and Beane remained in the office for a few more moments before leaving the property, reports said. Beane Bowen

LETS TALK TODAY. Chelsea Flores, Agent 4818 W Us Highway 90 Lake City, FL 32055 Bus: 386-438-5583 Cell: 386-209-2177 firstname.lastname@example.org Monday Friday 9am 5 pm Weekends by Appointment After-hours by Appointment The only difference compared to Katrina was that New Orleans stayed flooded for weeks, while the Panhandle has mostly dried out, Albert said. Â But the devastation is still the same, she said. The damage is still the same. Rescue workers couldnt get into Panama City without a stack of documents fr om FEMA and other agencies. Albert arrived Wednesday night. Â The first assignment took her to a V alero gas station, where 22 people adults and children locked themselves inside a freezer for safety during the storm. When they ventured outside, there was no way out of the parking lot. What we were told was trees down, Albert said. It was actually an entire row of power lines blocking people in. One man trapped on the other side said everyone was safe, but they needed food and water. Rescue volunteers used posts and two-by-fours to lift up the lines, Albert said. Theres small children who need food, drinks, she said. You dont think about what youre doing, you just think about what needs to be done. Working out of multiple staging areas, Alberts group responded to dozens of requests for help with searchand-rescues and welfare checks. The worst moment came Friday morning. Some survivors were vacationing in the area, unaware of the situation, Albert said. It fell on her to break the news to one of them that their baby sister had died. You have to be the strong one, and I didnt know these people from Adam, she said. And your heart breaks for them, because you want to make it better and you cant. Thank God we only had to do one, and that was this morning before we left, she added. When Albert left the Panhandle Friday afternoon to return to her day job in Lake City, she had to leave behind a growing backlog of requests for help. Im upset because I know theres so much more to be done, Albert said by phone as she passed through Madison County. I feel like Im leaving my family behind to take care of something I feel like I should be part of. One of the people who stayed behind was Elaine Lewis of Branford. Its a mess, Lewis said. Even rescuers are running out of food, running out of fuel, she added. Theyre running out of water. She and her husband arrived in Panama City after a day-long ride. These buildings are just ripped to shreds, Lewis said. Just absolutely ripped to shreds. Thursday night, Lewis and Albert helped evacuate an elderly couple. The mans oxygen supply was running low, but he refused to leave without his dog. Of course we werent going to leave it behind anyway, Lewis said. The couple was lucky and got into a shelter that accepts animals. Many werent so fortunate. Theres people sitting around on the side of the roads, Lewis said. They have nowhere to go. The shelters are full. For those who want to donate, Lewis said there is a need for water, sports drinks, medical supplies, any kind of fuel and food for humans, pets and livestock. Kayla Register of Lulu, part of Fleet of Angels Group 17, said Homes of Merit off Highway 100 in Lake City is collecting donations for the organization. In addition to collecting supplies for human survivors, Fleet of Angels is also in need of hay and feed, Register said. The Lake City-based United Way of Suwannee Valley wanted to wait to get a better idea of what the Panhandle communities need before organizing a collection drive, said Executive Director Jennifer Anchors. But United Way of Florida has set up a Hurricane Michael relief fund, Anchors said. Monetary donations can be made through uwof.org/ disaster-response-fund. Florida Gateway Food Bank, a program of the Catholic Charities regional office in Lake City, is encouraging community members to hold donation drives for pop-top cans of food and deliver them to 553 NW Railroad Street. Donors should mark or label the contributions to indicate they are intended for Hurricane Michael relief, according to an email from Catholic Charities. Monetary donations can be made through catholiccharitieslakecity.org The local office can be reached at 754-9180. Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center had to transfer patients to other hospitals in the Panhandle or North Florida. Lake City Medical Center was not one of them as of Friday night, but it was on standby to receive patients should that become necessary. Our motto is Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life, Lake City Medical Center CEO Rick Naegler wrote in an email. That means our team is here to help. We will do everything possible to support the team at our related facility in Panama City and take care of their patients if it comes to it. The hospital is participating in a region-wide drive for basic-need goods and health supplies. Donations will join those collected by North Florida Regional Medical Center and head into the storm-struck communities Oct. 16. The hospitals parent company, HCA Healthcare, also announced a $1 million donation to the America Red Cross to assist those affected by Hurricane Michael. Shands Lake Shore Regional Medical Center has not received any transfer patients from the affected area either. UF Health Shands Hospital in Gainesville has received at least 36 to date, according to a press release. RELIEFContinued From 1A
OPINION Youre probably like a lot of people. You look at political polls and think, I cant trust them. But maybe youre the problem. Maybe you dont understand how they work and how much stock to put in them. Maybe a poll doesnt match your perception of where a race stands, so you dismiss it (Ive been guilty of this). Maybe you look back at 2016 and wonder how Donald Trump won the presidency when so many surveys suggested that Hillary Clinton would win. (In reality, the 2016 polls werent that far off.) Or maybe youve heard that polls these days dont include cellphones (they do, actually) or that pollsters wind up skipping big chunks of the electorate (they can account for this, too). Patrick Miller, the astute University of Kansas political scientist, is a defender of polling. He says too many people dont understand it. He and others point to 2016 when 12 of 13 national polls conducted shortly before the election had Clinton ahead. In hindsight, thats a catastrophe, right? Maybe not. The polls survey the popular vote, and Clinton won the popular vote by 2.1 points. An average of the 13 final national polls showed Clinton ahead by 3.1 points. So the polls were pretty accurate. Miller points out that final campaign polls might miss a late surge, and theres evidence that Trump, in fact, surged. Listen, Im not immune to the skepticism either. I remember a mid-June poll from state Sen. Laura Kelly that had her easily winning a three-way race for the Kansas Democratic gubernatorial nomination. In that survey, rival candidate Josh Svaty was in distant third place behind Kelly and Carl Brewer. Svaty called foul, and I thought he was right. Svaty was too good a candidate to be ensconced so far back. Chalk it up to another lousy poll. Six weeks later, the three Democrats finished in precisely that order. To be wise polling consumers, voters need to consider the margin of error. Not every Democrat in Kansas was surveyed. Thats virtually impossible. So pollsters select what they hope is a representative sample. They attach to that an error margin to reflect that the sample could differ from the whole population. In Missouris U.S. Senate race, Fox News conducted one of the most recent polls, concluding the race was deadlocked at 46 percent with a margin of error of 3.5 percent. That means Claire McCaskill could have as much as 49.5 percent of the vote or as little as 42.5. The same with Josh Hawley. Its a mistake to overlook those margins of error. Polls are supposed to be an approximation, Miller said. The wild card in any survey is its weighting where the pollster adjusts the demographics of those surveyed to reflect the turnout the pollster expects on Election Day. The approximation of the number of Democrats and Republicans likely to show up can vary significantly from poll to poll, and that can have a significant impact on a surveys bottom line. A poll is nothing more than a snapshot in time with a wider possible range than most people acknowledge. Given that, the reputable polls are still worth your time.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman OUR OPINION Helf takes charge at City HallIt may not sound like much, but it probably means a lot to folks around Church Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, who had been trying for two years to get City Hall to close an open manhole and keep it closed. The lid kept coming off whenever big trucks would hit it at just the right angle, damaging the internal structure so the lid wouldnt fit back on. No one could figure out how to make it stop. Or maybe they just hadnt given it all that much thought. We called new City Manager Joe Helfenberger last week and he got it done, and done right, the next business day. The high tech solution to a nagging, two-year problem? City public works crews decided to weld the lid on. Sounds like a simple fix and it is. But for whatever reason, no one had been able to get it accomplished before Helfenberger took the reins at City Hall. Maybe its a coincidence, or maybe just a matter of taking residents concerns seriously and actually giving a hoot what they think. Were banking on the latter, and are optimistic this new way of doing business at City Hall will translate to broader concerns, as city and county officials come together on the overriding issue of the day: deployment of city utilities. This matters because it is the key to growth and, ultimately, jobs. Utilities have been an issue for a whole lot longer than two years. But with a willing partner at City Hall, anything is possible.Political polls junk science?The Saudis owe the world an answerWhere is Jamal? Thats what his fiancee, Hatice Cengiz, wants to know. Its what Turkey and the rest of the world want to know. Only Saudi Arabia has the answer. Cengiz was the last person to see Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi alive before he walked into the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2 to pick up documents he needed before their wedding. As he walked toward the entrance, she said she would wait for him outside, The Washington Post reported. Fine, my darling, he told her. Turkey says he never came out. Worse, Turkish officials suspect he was murdered by a Saudi regime that claims to embrace reforms but cracks down on any glimmer of dissent. Has Saudi Arabia joined the club of thug nations, locking arms with the likes of Russia, Venezuela, Iran and North Korea? Khashoggis fate will help the world decide. For years, Khashoggi, 59, was widely seen as a cogent, clear-thinking voice on Saudi affairs. As of late, he had been a contributor to The Washington Posts Global Opinions section. Earlier in his career, he served as an aide for the Saudi regimes intelligence chief, then established himself as a respected Saudi journalist. He even had on his resume an interview with Osama bin Laden in the 1980s when bin Laden was a militant leader fighting the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. But he also became a critic of the Saudi regime and its day-to-day leader, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Prince Mohammeds rule has had a Jekyll-and-Hyde cast to it. At the same time he has touted reforms such as allowing women to drive, he has overseen the arrest of activists and critics. He also has prosecuted a brutal, Saudi-led intervention in Yemen, where civilian casualties continue to mount. Turkeys suspicions arent certainties, but neither are they preposterous. Khashoggi first went to the Saudi Consulate on Sept. 28 to get the documents but was told to come back in a week. In between Khashoggis two consulate visits, a team of 15 Saudi agents arrived in Istanbul on two planes, Turkish officials say. According to The New York Times, Turkish investigators say the agents killed Khashoggi inside the consulate and dismembered his body. Saudi officials say Khashoggi left the consulate, but they havent offered any evidence. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has pressed the Saudi regime to come clean, saying Saudi consular officials have access to security cameras that could either prove or refute their claims. Do you not have cameras and everything of the sort? he said of consular officials. Then why do you not prove this? In contrast to Erdogan, President Donald Trumps reaction has been subdued. I dont like hearing about it, Trump said Monday. Hopefully that will sort itself out. Since taking office, Trump has coddled the Saudi regime. He sees the Saudis as valued regional allies against Iran. He may have a soft spot for the crown prince, but if Khashoggi was murdered by Saudi assassins, Trump will have to hold Riyadh accountable. The Saudi royals covet relations with the West, so they know that Khashoggis disappearance marks a crossroads. They can continue to hide behind the facade of reform, or they can embrace real change by freeing dissidents and activists. They also should allow journalists to do their jobs. Most urgently, they owe the world an answer about whats happened to Khashoggi. Chicago Tribune Associated Press TODAY IN HISTORY On this date: In 1912, former President Theodore Roosevelt, campaigning for the White House as the Progressive (Bull Moose) candidate, went ahead with a speech in Milwaukee after being shot and wounded in the chest by New York saloonkeeper John Schrank, declaring, It takes more than one bullet to kill a bull moose. In 1947, U.S. Air Force Capt. Charles E. (Chuck) Yeager became the first test pilot to break the sound barrier as he flew the experimental Bell XS-1 (later X-1) rocket plane over Muroc Dry Lake in California. In 1960, Democratic presidential candidate John F. Kennedy suggested the idea of a Peace Corps while addressing an audience of students at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.

CHRISTINA FEAGIN/Special to the ReporterFort White receiver Rahman Paul makes a catch against Union County on Friday night. By JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comJACKSONVILLE Atlantic Coast shot off an Â ar ray of fireworks on the field prior to kickoff Friday night. But thats about as exciting as it would get for the Stingrays against Columbia. The Tigers provided plenty of their own fireworks during the game. Quarterback Jordan Smith threw for 304 yards and four touchdowns while running for another, the defense combined for five sacks and the special teams blocked two punts that resulted in another score. It all added up to a 57-7 District 2-7A victory at Arlington Toyota Stadium.By JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comJACKSONVILLE His absence was as clear as day in Columbias one-point loss to Trinity Christian two weeks ago. The Tigers had zero sacks, got bullied by running back Marcus Crowley for 266 yards and left Jacksonville with a burning anger over their first loss of the season. They needed linebacker Levontae Camiel, who missed the game with a concussion. They believe he wouldve made a difference maybe even THE difference and he showed why in his return Friday night against Atlantic Coast. Camiel sacked Atlantic Coast quarterback Bubba Wohlgemuth two and a half times and lit a fire under a defense that allowed just two yards of offense in 57-7 road win in District 2-7A action. The junior made his presence known early on, registering sacks in the first and second quarters as the Tigers (6-1, 2-0) forced the Stingrays (2-5, 0-3) into six straight three-and-Columbia linebacker Levontae Camiel sacks Atlantic Coast quarterback Bubba Wohlgemuth on Friday night. Tigers dominate Stingrays across the board Friday. Camiel makes emphatic return from concussion.

Dan Mullen prefers not to talk about what prompted his 14th-ranked Florida Gators and the Vanderbilt Commodores to spill off the sidelines. Derek Mason says a Florida player said something to the Vanderbilt coach. In the end, the Gators big comeback overshadowed the near brawl in which both head coaches yelled at each other. Jordan Scarlett ran 48 yards for the go-ahead touchdown on the first play of the fourth quarter, and No. 14 Florida rallied from an 18-point deficit to beat Vanderbilt 37-27 on Saturday to match the largest road comeback in school history. The Gators (6-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) snapped a 26-game skid when trailing by 18 or more points. They scored 24 straight after Vanderbilt jumped out to a 21-3 lead midway through the second quarter, their first comeback win since Sept. 27, 2003, at Kentucky. Mistakes happen in football, Scarlett said. Its how you fight through adversity and how you respond, and I think we responded really well. The finish was nearly overshadowed by an incident in the second quarter on a Florida punt return with SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey on hand to watch. An official held back Mullen as he yelled at Mason who was near the Gators sideline after checking on the Commodore defender whose helmet was knocked off by a hit by linebacker James Houston IV. Both teams spilled onto the field, drawing unsportsmanlike conduct penalties. Were not going to get into that publicly at all, Mullen said. Dereks a really close friend of mine, and I think we both, our sideline, we got to make sure our sideline were cleaner in that situation, and Im sure he probably thinks the same thing. But theres nothing carrying over from my end. The penalty cost the Gators their leading tackler; Vosean Joseph was ejected for his second unsportsmanlike conduct penalty of the first half. Two people escorted an emotional Joseph off the field. Mullen and Mason hugged each other at midfield after the game. Mason said they talked. The Vanderbilt coach heard a Florida player say something to him and said he responded, then Mullen got mad. Its the referees job to referee the game and not ours ., Mason said. Ive got a lot of respect for Dan. He respects the process otherwise, so we keep it moving. Florida won its fifth straight Late-game heroes push Indians past Fightin TigersBy ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comLAKE BUTLER With 48 seconds left in regulation, trailing by a point, Dylan Blair dialed up his favorite target. The quarterback zipped a pass to wide open receiver Rahman Paul, who put the Indians ahead late on a 40-yard touchdown catch. When I read the coverage, I knew it was going to be open, Blair said of the how the play unraveled. When the corner fell, I said thats a touchdown. Blairs only touchdown pass of the game came at the right time, helping Fort White squeak past Union County 21-15 at Marvin Pritchett Field Friday night. The Indians overcame a bevy of penalties and a lackluster first half to record their third straight win of the season. Despite losing momentum late, Fort White remained focused. The Indians (5-2) were on their heels when the Fightin Tigers (4-4) put together their best drive of the night. Union County running back Keyshawn Young gave his team the lead when he scored from three yards out, capping his 186-yard performance. The Indians rose to the challenge. With 2:21 remaining, they went to work. We work on two-minute drill every day, Fort White coach Demetric Jackson said after the game. Thats something we work on every day. So when get a chance for a two-minute drill, we feel comfortable about it. Thats what we do. We had no timeouts [on the last drive] but our guys kept their cool. Dylan hit Rahman on that seam route and he went the distance, so I was really proud of how they finished. Fort White running Blairs 40-yard touchdown pass to Paul in the final minute gives Indians win.INDIANS continued on 4B CHS continued on 8B 57 7 UF scores 24 straight after Vandy ran out to 21-3 lead in first half.GATORS continued on 4B B2

COLLEGE VOLLEYBALL PREP VOLLEYBALL MLB PLAYOFFSTurner homers as Dodgers beat Brewers in NLCS Game 2By JAY COHENAssociated PressMILWAUKEE Justin Turner hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning to send the Los Angeles Dodgers over the Milwaukee Brewers 4-3 and even the NL Championship Series at a game apiece. The high-powered Dodgers had two measly singles off starter Wade Miley before breaking through against a vaunted bullpen. After forcing the Brewers to use six relievers in Milwaukees 6-5 victory Friday night, the NL West champions put that extended look to good use in Game 2, especially against faltering AllStar Jeremy Jeffress. Milwaukee wasted a terrific performance by Miley in its first loss in three weeks, ending a 12-game winning streak that produced free burgers for its fans as part of a promotion by a local restaurant chain. Miley pitched 5 2/3 scoreless innings in his second career playoff start and had two hits in his first multihit game since 2014. The best-of-seven series now moves to Dodger Stadium for Game 3 on Monday night. Walker Buehler pitches for Los Angeles and Jhoulys Chacin gets the ball for Milwaukee. Miley handed a 2-0 lead over to his bullpen and Travis Shaw tacked on a solo drive in the sixth. Cody Bellinger got Los Angeles on the board with an RBI single in the seventh, chasing Corbin Burnes and stopping an 0-for-15 slide in the playoffs that landed him on the bench at the start of the game. Austin Barnes forced in another run with a bases-loaded walk off Jeffress, but the right-hander escaped when pinch-hitter Yasmani Grandal bounced into a double play. Chris Taylor reached on a leadoff single in the eighthbefore Turner hit a long drive to left off Jeffress, admiring the ball with his bat pointed toward the sky for a short time before rounding the bases.
SU NDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER 3B OUTDOORSGet on target set up your scope the easy way By MONTY STEPHENSSpecial to the ReporterHunting season is just around the corner. As a reminder, muzzle loading season starts next Saturday and the Florida General Gun season kicks off Nov. 3, so this is the time to get your gear in order. Number one on the list should be ensuring your rifle is properly sighted in. Should a once in a lifetime opportunity avail itself to score on a trophy buck, it would be heartbreaking to miss the shot because the scope was off. Im very skeptical of movies showing a sniper on top of a building who takes a rifle out of a brief case, starts putting the pieces together and then snaps his scope on just in time to make a successful 400-yard shot at a moving target. That seems very unlikely. In reality, to ensure we can make the shot when the time comes, we need to mount our scope on the rifle, dial them in at the range and then protect the whole setup from bumps that might knock them out of alignment. This list should also include practice. Improperly mounted scopes can adversely affect accuracy of the rifle. But mounting a scope is something usually done by average hunters with good mechanical skills. Gunsmiths charge from $25-$50 to mount a scope depending on the complexity of the job. But keep in mind, the Gunsmith will do more than just screw everything together. Before installing scope bases or rings, of course, check your firearm to ensure it is unloaded. Well start with the scope bases. The scope bases are flat pieces of metal that will be attached to the rifle that will hold the scope rings. Select a proper screw driver that fits the screws for your scope bases. Scope bases come in either steel or aluminum. Steel is stronger and costs more but it adds weight and may rust. Aluminum is lighter, less expensive and more common. Be sure and clean the threads in your rifle with a degreaser. Apply a small drop of Lock Tight or Thread Locker on each screw and tighten them onto the rifle. Torque should about 45-inch pounds. The screws that came with the bases are mostly likely not too long but once installed, do check inside your action to ensure the screws dont protrude and rub on the rifle bolt assembly. The scope rings (two) also come in aluminum or steel. Most scope rings are split and have a top and bottom. The screws that hold the two scope ring halves together are typically Allen screws. Separate the two halves and look for burrs inside the rings. Screw just the bottom part of the ring onto the scope bases (on the rifle). Then set the scope on the bottom rings and check for alignment. Then carefully set the top or cap of the scope ring over the scope and lightly snug it. The scope should move freely in the rings. Shoulder the rifle and adjust the eye relief on the scope and turn the scope to ensure its turrets are perpendicular to the rifle. Now carefully tighten each screw just a little, then switch over to the screw on the other side of the ring. Do the front and back rings like this until they are tightened to 15-25-inch pounds. When you are done, the gap in the scope rings should be nearly identical from left to right. Getting the scope properly mounted on the rifle is very important to accuracy. A frequently encountered problem in scope mounting is the bases are not aligned with each other. If the rifle has a quality one-piece base, then chances are good the rings will align with no issues. Should the rifle have two separate bases like most bolt action rifles have, then chances are good the bases will not be perfectly aligned. It all depends on how accurate the manufacturer was in drilling and taping the rifle for scope mounts. To correct this problem, the gunsmith will use an alignment tool to ensure the rings are perfectly centered. If a ring is out of alignment, it will be lapped or ground with an abrasive material to bring it into alignment. Now the fun part. Go to a suitable range and for newly mounted scope, start at 25 yards to get on paper. Shoot two to three rounds to establish grouping, then make adjustments. Once a bullseye is scored, move the target to 100 yards and do the same. At 100 yards, most scopes adjust with one click equal to a quarter of an inch. Be prepared to shoot at least a half box of ammo. Be sure and use a sandbag or something to steady the rifle. There is an easy way to sight in a rifle. Set the rifle in a Lead Sled, align the scope to the target center and fire a round. Now keep the rifle steady and look through the scope and adjust the scope to align with the bullet hole. Do not move the rifle in the Lead Sled during this process. When the scope aligns with bullet hole, the rifle will be on target. Fire a round or two to verify alignment. This is the easy way to sight in a rifle and it minimizes human error that occurs if the trigger is jerked or the rifle is moving when the trigger is pulled. Good hunting and stay safe.COURTESY PHOTOSDarrell Hunt makes adjustments on a Bergara 300 Win. Mag. set up in a Caldwell Lead sled. View looking through a scope at a target down range.

4B SU NDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER this season. The Gators also beat Vanderbilt (3-4, 0-3) for the fifth straight year and 27th time in 28 games in this series. Vanderbilt turned three turnovers into 17 points, and the Commodores also sacked Feleipe Franks twice and stripped him of the ball once. They also intercepted Franks once. Kyle Shurmur threw two touchdowns with his father, New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur, in the stands. Jamauri Wakefield also ran for a TD. When Florida could hold onto the ball, the Gators simply dominated and outgained Vanderbilt 576-336 in total offense. Scarlett finished with 113 yards rushing, and Lamical Perine added a TD run and 121 yards rushing for the Gators first 100-yard rusher this season times two. Franks threw for a careerhigh 284 yards and two touchdowns. His second, an 11-yarder to Freddie Swain, padded the lead midway through the fourth quarter to seal the comeback.TAKEAWAYSFlorida: The Gators struggled yet again with too many penalties. The costliest came when they left the sideline while Vanderbilt trainers tended to lineman Dare Odeyingbo and coaches started yelling at each other. That unsportsmanlike conduct penalty wound up being the sec ond for Joseph. The linebacker had been flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct on Vanderbilts third TD drive for slamming a running back to the ground after the whistle. Vanderbilt: The Commodores start 0-3 in league play for a sixth straight season. It didnt help that they lost running back KeShawn Vaughn early in the second quarter to an unspecified injury. Vaughn finished with one catch for 75 yards and a TD and he ran seven times for 56 yards before being hurt.POLL IMPLICATIONSThe Gators played sloppily enough with seven penalties for 89 yards along with the turnovers that holding their ranking will be good after their escape in Nashville.UP NEXTFlorida: The Gators have an open date before their annual game with No. 2 Georgia on Oct. 27. Vanderbilt: The Commodores visit No. 18 Kentucky. GATORS Continued From 1BCOMMENATRYIndians will go as far as Blair takes themTiwahe Nation received quite a scare when gunslinger Dylan Blair went down with an apparent ankle injury during the third quarter. Fort Whites star running back Corey Dryden is already lost for the season with an ACL tear and now this? Luckily, the ankle roll was mild enough for Blair to reenter the ballgame on the next drive, which helped relieve fans who were fearing the worst. And they had reason to be worried because without No. 7, theres no storybook ending Friday night. He didnt have his greatest game in that first half, coach Demetric Jackson told me. He was doing some things that were uncharacteristic of him. But in the second half, he came back and started putting it on the money. Blair recorded 161 passing yards, completing nine of his 20 tries through the air. It was a spotty performance for the quarterback, but he locked in the fourth quarter, leading the Indians to two critical scoring drives. He showed a lot of moxie on his first career game-winning drive, capped off by Rahman Pauls 40-yard touchdown. I feel like we can get through any adversity, Blair told me. Whatever we want to accomplish, we can do it. Â Even when its not going gr eat, were going lift each other up and get there. Fort Whites offense regressed when backup sophomore quarterback Brayden Summers took over behind center. In Blairs short absence, the Indians offensive attack became stagnant and too one-dimensional to be effective, even against an unspectacular Union County defense. So for the tribes sake, it was good to see Blair trot back onto the field just minutes later. The Indians will need him if they want to make a state playoff run this season. Hes been far from perfect, still trying to get his timing down with his receivers. But the best pocket-passer in the schools history gives the Indians their best chance to win. And theyve been invested in him since he arrived from Columbia this summer. So when one of his teammates accidentally stepped on his ankle, forcing him to briefly exit the game Friday night, Tiwahe Nation had every reason to be nervous. The Indians will go as far as Blair takes them. Nobody asked me, but ... Eric JacksonPhone: (386) 754-0420 ejackson@lakecityr eporter.comCHRISTINA FEAGIN/Special to the ReporterFort White quarterback Dylan Blair hands the ball off to running back Stanley Maxwell against Union County on Friday night.back Stanley Maxwell was one of several seniors who stepped up late for the Indians. He finished with 183 yards rushing and two touchdowns. His first score of the night came on the tribes opening drive of the game. It was an auspicious start for the offense though it wasnt until the fourth quarter, 33 minutes later, that the Indians returned to the end zone. Fort Whites offense was plagued by penalties and miscues, which led to missed opportunities during the first three quarters. The tribe delivered when it mattered most, in the fourth quarter. Rule number one: dont give up, defensive end Jaquan Robinson said. Thats all we had to do. Believe in ourselves and believe in each other. If everybody does their assignment, were goodThats one thing we say, no matter how much we get down, were not going to give up on each other. After Maxwells second touchdown midway through the fourth, the Tigers grabbed the lead for the first time on the back of Young, who tried to give Union County its first win in the series since 2012. His touchdown run and twopoint conversion had the Tigers staring at victory, but Blair and Pauls late-game heroics was enough for the Indians escape with their fourth-straight win over the Tigers. It wasnt the ideal win they imagined, but nonetheless an exhilarating one to build on moving forward. Its just the fact that we didnt quit, Jackson added. We kept fighting. We faced adversity, whether we caused it or they caused it. We just kept fighting, and for our guys not to give up and keep playing, it speaks volumes of our players and the character that they have. UP NEXT: Union County travels to Hawthorne next week. Fort White returns home to host Dixie County. The Indians lost to the Bears 27-14 last year in Cross City.

Dak Prescott, Jason Garrett and the Dallas Cowboys have the opposite issue heading into a Sunday matchup with familiar faces on both sidelines. Bortles has a chance to be just the fifth NFL quarterback with at least 375 yards passing in three straight games after establishing a career high in consecutive weeks. He also had a career-high four interceptions last week, which helped explain a 30-14 loss to undefeated Kansas City. There was something else that bothered Marrone against the Chiefs: a season-low 17 rushing attempts to go with Bortles personal high of 61 throws. The only other game this season with fewer than 20 carries? The other loss for Jacksonville (3-2), against Tennessee. Thats not the way we want to play, Marrone said. I probably should have done a better job of that. I just felt like we were pressing and trying to make plays. I just think overall I have to do a better job of managing that. Of course, the Jaguars have some pretty good reasons to tilt toward the pass. Running back Leonard Fournette will be out for the fourth time in six games with a hamstring injury. Jacksonville is on its third left tackle in Josh Walker. The Jaguars signed twotime All-Pro running back Jamaal Charles this week and expect him to contribute behind T.J. Yeldon against the Cowboys (2-3). I think we were pretty fortunate last year as far as staying healthy, Bortles said. This year we havent been quite as lucky. These next three weeks, not looking ahead or anything, but to get to the bye week are important with the amount of guys we have down.

8B SU NDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER The entire second half was played with a running clock as the Tigers eclipsed 50 points for the first time since putting up 59 against First Coast last season. Kylen Callum, Marquez Bell, Bobby Fulton and TJ Jones each caught a touchdown pass in the first half before the backups took over in the second half on a night Columbia dominated from start to finish. Im absolutely proud of them for how clean they played as far as executing what we do, Columbia head coach Brian Allen said. Thats what were supposed to be. The conversation before the game starts is go out and just play your game. Thats all you have to do. It doesnt matter if its Trinity (Christian), it doesnt matter if its Atlantic Coast go out and do what we do. You dont have to do anything more or less, just go out and do what you do. I think they came in and settled down and played a really good football game. It wasnt just the offense that shined for the Tigers (6-1, 2-0). The defense held the Stingrays (2-5, 0-3) to just two yards of total offense and only allowed one first down the entire night a 12-yard run by Deutra Haith in the second quarter. Columbias defense forced Atlantic Coast into a three-and-out on its first six drives of the night while the offense scored points on six of its seven drives in the first half. Stingrays quarterback Bubba Wohlgemuth struggled with his accuracy under pressure all night, completing only three of his 13 attempts for 11 yards. Levonate Camiel sacked Wohlgemuth two and a half times in his return from a concussion and Willie Jernigan got to him once. Jaylen Brown, Terrick Ponds, and Daveion Folston each had a half-sack. We werent trying to let them get any first downs, Camiel said. We knew if we stopped the run, our pass defense would stop them. The Tigers marched right down the field on their open ing drive before a holding call brought back a long touchdown pass to Fulton and set the offense back into a 3rd-and-20 at midfield. It didnt matter. Smith hit Callum with a screen pass and he took it the rest of the way for a 7-0 lead. That was just a good play call by Coach Allen, said Smith, who completed 12 of his 13 attempts. I didnt think it was going to be there but Kylen came open and I threw it to him where there was grass at and he made a play. Smiths precision was on display on Columbias next drive, hitting Bell for completions of five and 10 yards, Jones for 35 yards and Fulton for 25 more. That set up a 5-yard keeper by Smith to extend the lead to 13-0. After Brown blocked a punt to set up Garrett Fennells 35-yard field goal early in the second quarter, Smith lit up Atlantic Coasts secondary with two long touchdown throws. He hit Bell in stride for a 56-yard score on the next drive and then put another ball in Fultons breadbasket for a 70-yard touchdown on the following possession. Bell caught four passes for 97 yards while Fulton finished with three receptions for 95 yards. Its easy, Smith said when his receivers get open, especially with the line giving me the time I had makes it easy to deliver the ball like that. I dont have to do too much, I dont have to put it right there, I just have to throw it up and let them make a play on it for a touchdown and six. Smith finished off a near perfect first half with a 5-yard touchdown pass to Jones, which was set up by a 49-yard run by Callum. The junior running back carried the ball eight times for 67 yards. That score triggered the second halfs running clock but Columbia still wasnt done. Shyheim Brown blocked a punt right before halftime that Devin Johnson caught in midair and returned nine yards for a touchdown and a 44-0 lead. Our special teams has been struggling but Coach (Chris) Coleman has been getting on us, Camiel said. Im very proud of our special teams for stepping up, more than our defense did tonight. Backup running back Caleb Dixon scored a 15-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Atlantic Coast avoided a shutout when Kevaughn Hobbs intercepted backup quarterback Ty Wehinger on a deflection and took it 11 yards for a score with less than seven minutes remaining in the fourth. Wehinger connected with Brandon Johnson for a 15-yard touchdown pass on the games final play for the last score of the night. UP NEXT: Columbia hosts Fletcher next week for homecoming. Both teams are undefeated in district play, with Fletcher coming off of a bye week. The Tigers won last years meeting 42-27. Atlantic Coast travels to First Coast, which lost to Robert E. Lee outs to begin the game. It was a great feeling, said Camiel, who also had a tackle-for-loss. I just had to come in and get back into a groove because I wasnt used to contact. But my teammates got me right back and got me used to contact real quick so I could get back into my groove. The Stringrays may have been surprised by Camiel, considering he didnt play the last two games and likely wasnt on any game tape they watched to prepare for the matchup. The Tigers used that to their advantage, sending the pass rusher after Wohlgemuth all night in a variety of different looks. I think that was beneficial to us, Columbia head coach Brian Allen said. They didnt know that there would be a kid on the edge like (Camiel) so he was definitely disruptive and it allowed other things happen as well. Allen was speaking of the teams other sacks as Columbia combined for five total in the game. Columbias defensive front created havoc even when it wasnt getting to the quarterback, also finishing with six tackles-for-loss. Once Atlantic Coast starting keying on Camiel it opened up lanes for the rest of Columbias defense. It allowed Willie Jernigan to get a sack and Jaylen Brown and Daveion Folston to combine for another before Camiel got to Wohlgemuth one last time with the aid of Terrick Ponds shortly before halftime. Â It was a huge night for Camiel but ask him about it and hell tell you nothing puts a smile on his face quite like seeing one his teammate get a sack. When I come off the edge and (Wohlgemuth) steps up it gives the rest of my defensive line an opportunity to get the sack, Camiel said. Thats all I really care about their achievements coming up. If I get a sack great but I just really care about the rest of my teammates as well. Columbias constant pressure allowed Atlantic Coast to register only one first down the entire night. Those five sacks and six tackles-for-loss also resulted in the Stingrays finishing with negative nine yards rushing and one lost fumble, recovered by Pharoah Baker. Allen walked away from the game impressed by the performance, considering Atlantic Coast pushed Robert E. Lee just two weeks in a 34-32 loss. He doesnt remember many of his defenses, if any, holding an opponent to just two yards of offense. Its been a long time, Allen said. The thing more so that Im impressed with is (Atlantic Coast) came out and played Lee as close as you want to see it two weeks ago. Our defense came out tonight with a purpose. We said last week we need to stop the run first. Weve got to be able to control our specific gaps CHS Continued From 1B CAMIEL Continued From 1B Photos by BRENT KUYKENDALL/Lake City ReporterColumbia defensive back Devin Johnson catches Shyheim Browns blocked punt and returns it for a touchdown against Atlantic Coast in the second quarter Friday night.

A leg up for the local workforce TONY BRITT/Lake City ReporterRobert Jones (left), CareerSource Florida Crown executive director, stands with Keaven Jones, lead career manager, as the two display the Leadership Ambassador Award that Keaven Jones won last month. Man recognized for helping youth here get GEDs.By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comCareer Source Florida Crown is the local state agency tasked with linking up businesses and qualified job candidates looking for work. Sometimes, in order to make the equation work, Career Source Florida Crown staff members have to give the candidates a little help. Keaven Jones has done an exceptional job for the local office. In fact, hes done so well in the last year that he was recognized recently with a state award for his efforts. Jones, Career Source Florida Crown lead career manager, was given the Leadership Ambassador Award. Jones earned the award through his efforts to help young high school dropouts and others who didnt receive high school diplomas or GEDs get their necessary documentation. They (state officials) believe through my efforts CROWN continued on 2C
2C LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER BUSINESS WEEK OF SUNDAY, OCTOBER 1420, 2018 Im able to reach children and young people to help change their lives, Jones said. But the truth is that its through all our efforts here at Career Source because we are a great team and Im probably the weakest link on the team. Its actually amazing the award only has my name instead of everybody else. Its a good feeling, but its still bittersweet because if this is the end of the road for me, look at all that gap that wont be covered. Robert Jones, executive director Career Source Florida Crown (and no relation), didnt fully concur with Keavens assessment. Keaven has proven hes one of the best in the state and the state recognizes that, so its a real positive thing for us here at Career Source Florida Crown to have Keaven win this award, said Robert Jones. Its a statewide award and we appreciate the work that he has been doing, especially with our youth. Keaven was competing for the award against 26 other people a representative from each of the states other 24 work force boards, plus a representative from the division of blind services, as well a representative from vocational rehabilitation. (The representatives from blind services and vocational rehabilitation are core partners of the Career Source service providers.) Robert Jones noted that Keaven has helped 36 local youths get their GEDs in Columbia County within the last year. Thats a tremendous help for our youths, Executive Director Jones said. Even after they left school we were still able to help them get their GEDs or high school diplomas. Keaven has been a key part of that and hes really been someone that shows you that with effort you can accomplish these things and be good at it. Through his job duties Keaven encounters a lot of young people who are looking for jobs and looking to begin their careers in the Florida workforce. Its a blessing, he said. You dont know how they are going to receive you or feel about you and you dont know if youre the first person to ever give them advice, so sometimes you have to take their blows in stride. He said at times when he tries to offer encouragement to his clients who havent had positive reinforcement in 5-10 years, it turns out to be an eye-opener for them. There are a lot of great young people in this community that are going to reach their goals whether I help them or not, he said. If I can be a part of it, then its a blessing to me. Even if Im not, I still pray that they reach every dream theyve ever had. Keaven, who has been a Career Source Florida Crown employee for just under three years years, said its the first time hes won this award. There is so much more that I still can do and need to get done, he said, moments before a luncheon in honor of his award win. Im appreciative, but at the same time, this just fuels the desire because at the end of the day there are so many youths I havent reached yet. This motivates me to keep going keep pushing harder. This is for the kids and for people like Mr. Robert who believed in me. If I can believe in them like he believes in me, then this is just proof of what will come. Keaven said winning the award will inspire him to continue his efforts to help others get jobs and continue their education.He said he takes the task so seriously because there are people in his life that continue to hold him accountable and he in turn holds his clients accountable for their actions. Accountability is important, he said. It builds leadership and character and I want to continue to let my clients to know to keep going and keep pushing because whether you get recognized or not, if you can have peace within yourself then you will do fine.Meet the Smith family. Both parents work, and they make good money. From the outside, life looks good a new Tahoe, a big house, and private schools for the kids. But in reality, the Smiths are barely scraping by. With the help of credit cards and car loans, they spend more money than they make, and theyre just one financial emergency away from being in serious trouble. Then, theres the Williams family. One parent works, and makes decent money, while the other stays at home and takes care of the kids. The Williams family lives on a budget, and even though they still have a lot of student loan debt, theyve cut the balance in half during the last two years. They have a small emergency fund saved, and they expect to be out of debt completely in two years. So, what do you think is the difference between the Smiths and the Williamses? Why is one family able to pay off thousands of dollars in debt on a tight budget, while another family barely gets by week after week? Why does one person succeed with money, while another person struggles? There are dozens of factors, but, many times, it comes down to these key characteristics. Theyre patient. People who win with money are patient. They can delay a short-term pleasure for a long-term gain. In other words, they can walk right by the shoe section without blinking. They know $100 shoes would be nice, but they have higher priorities. Thats because they understand the bigger picture. Its about retirement and college funds and that beach vacation theyre dreaming about. Believe me, I love the shoe section. But when I stop and pick up a pair of designer shoes in a store, I ask myself if weve budgeted for this and if buying that pair of shoes effect our priorities. Theyre confident. When youre in control of your money, youre confident. You also dont care when other people look down their noses at you, because youre cutting back on lifestyle costs. Keeping up with the Joneses? Forget about it! One of the mistakes people make is to fall into the social media comparison game. You pull up Instagram and see beautiful photos from your friend Sarahs Caribbean cruise. Meanwhile, you havent been on vacation in a year because youre working so hard to get out of debt. But confident people stay focused on their goals and understand that sacrifices are temporary. They know theyll be able to take that cruise soon enough! Theyre goal-oriented. People who win with money approach goals with incredible passion. Save $1,000? Check. Get out of debt? Check. Build a full emergency fund? Check. For them, setting goals is fun. This isnt some special skill youre born with. Anyone can develop the habit of goal-setting, and here are a few basic tips. them in a visible spot. Seeing your goals written out every day will keep them at the front of your mind. much debt do you want to pay off each month? How much weight do you want to lose each month? your finish line? And, remember, be realistic. Youll probably need more than a month to get out of debt! get it. They understand in order to get to where they want to be financially, they might have to take a year off from vacation, skip dining out for a few months, or cut back on grocery spending. And honestly, couldnt we all cut back on grocery spending? When I talk with people about their budgets, food is one of the main areas where people overspend either at the grocery store or dining out. Responsible people are willing to look at their money situation and make smart choices. I know sometimes adulting isnt fun. But those smaller, boring decisions, like budgeting and staying on top of your account balance, can put you in a place to have a lot more fun later. Thats becoming a theme here, isnt it? They understand that you can have a bunch of stuff without being wealthy, and you can be wealthy without owning a bunch of stuff. Big houses, nice cars, and fancy vacations are perfectly fine, but someone who wins with money understands all those things by themselves dont bring happiness. They live their lives with that in mind. That doesnt mean theyre against owning stuff, or they think wealthy people are somehow evil, they just get the fact that money isnt everything. They understand budget cuts are just temporary. Five years from now, once theyre out of debt and winning with money, theyll look back on those sacrifices with a smile. This is a big one, and it works closely with patience and responsibility. Sacrifice cant happen if you arent patient or responsible, because you cant get past the immediate rush of having something or doing something right now. When it comes to sacrificing with money, you must look past today. The great thing about these characteristics is you can develop them. Even if you arent naturally patient, or you arent a big goal setter, you can develop these character traits by working to create new habits in your life. And when these habits turn into character traits, youll be well on your way toward winning with money for good!

Every time we do our monthly budget, we set aside a small amount of personal spending money for us both. Do you see anything wrong with this? DeAnna Dear DeAnna, Theres absolutely nothing wrong with having a little fun money calculated into your monthly budget when youre in good financial shape. The problems start when couples dont agree on these kinds of things or worse when they start hiding stuff and lying to each other about where the moneys going. People either grow together or they grow apart when they get married. When you start hiding things from your spouse youre essentially keeping separate lives. Thats a bad sign in any marriage, and in many cases, this kind of thing leads to divorce. Having an agreed-upon budget isnt just telling your money what to do. Its also an important part of a healthy sharing and communication process between husband and wife! Dave Close up small business?Dear Dave, I have a small business, and I love what I do. Unfortunately, things havent been going well the last several months. On top of that, Ive committed a lot of money to advertising in the coming year. Recently, I got a great job offer from a company that would pay me twice what Im making now. What do you think I should do? Hugh Dear Hugh, If it were me, Id want to keep my options open. Closing your business would mean giving up all your customers. Im not sure thats a good idea when the offer has just been made, and you know so little about the actual job. If you think this new job is something you might like, why not accept the offer and see if you can continue your other work on the weekends? That would help cover some, if not all, of your advertising commitment. Plus, it would keep some money rolling in if the new job doesnt work out. If you find you like this new job, then youve got a great income and something you like doing on weekends that pays. If you keep your business open even on a small scale theres always a chance it will begin to grow again. Who knows? It might give you the oppor tunity to jump back into it full-time somewhere down the road! Dave Dave Ramsey is Americas trust ed voice on money and business, and CEO of Ramsey Solutions.

Dave RamseyCEO of Ramsey SolutionsDAVE SAYS CROWNContinued From 1CFrom staff reportsGAINESVILLE --Many young children today are disconnected from the natural world as controlled learning environments have placed a barrier between nature and students. But with support from Outback Steak House, the Florida Museum of Natural History is working to close the gap between urban students and nature by planting butterfly gardens in area schools. Outback recently donated $5,000 to fund curriculum development centered on the museums ongoing project to install the gardens. The additional lessons seek to help teachers build stronger connections between students and the gardens and see more tangible results from their efforts. Students learning how to care for gardens can better understand why theyre so important, said Elizabeth Watts, director of media and community relations for Bloomin Brands Inc., the parent company of Outback Steak House. This may even open the door for sustainable agriculture awareness and many other important purposes gardens serve. Often times we are so busy in our lives that we dont take time to stop and smell the roses. Its good to remind our younger generation that we shouldnt take nature -and all the beautiful things it offers -for granted. Since 2013, Florida Museum volunteers and employees, including scientists from the McGuire Center for Lepidoptera and Biodiversity, have helped teachers and students create and maintain gardens in nine Alachua County schools. The project helps teach students about the butterfly life cycle and the responsibilities involved in caring for a garden. The program gives hands-on exposure to the concepts and ideas children are learning about in class, said Kara Schwartz, Florida Museum development coordinator. Kids dont get to go outside as much as they used to, so this is an opportunity to help them get their hands dirty while exposing them to nature. Museum employee and wildlife biologist Kimberly Tillman, who assists with the project, said school teachers often are just as excited as students about planting the gardens. Teachers crave the opportunities the garden brings, Tillman said. It gives them alternative learning spaces and provides hands-on learning experiences for students. If were able to give teachers a pre-made curriculum it makes it easier for them to get students outside.

The Florida Museum of Natural History, which celebrated its 100th year in 2017 as the state museum of natural history, inspires people to value the biological richness and cultural heritage of our diverse world and make a positive difference in its future.

On the other hand, a triple-leveraged (x) S&P 500 ETF would turn that into a gain of 30 percent, a drop of 90 percent, and a gain of 30 percent. Your original $1,000 investment would plunge in value to just $169 and you would need a 492 percent rebound just to get back to even. Thats why leveraged ETFs are so dangerous. Of course, this is a simplified example and the market doesnt generally move 10 percent (or 30 percent) in a day, but even smaller ups and downs can have a devastating effect over time. Both the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the independent Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) have warned about the risks of leveraged ETFs. Stick with regular, non-leveraged ETFs, and learn more about them at etfdb.com and fool.com/ investing/etf.In Your Face(book)Many investors have been worried that Facebooks (Nasdaq: FB) growth rate would hit a wall, but its latest earnings report instead showed signs of significant operating momentum. Its number of monthly active users jumped 11 percent year over year to over 2.2 billion people (!) in the second quarter of 2018; roughly two-thirds of those folks logged in to the service at least once a day. Facebook had no trouble monetizing all of that engagement, either, as advertising sales spiked 42 percent year over year to $13 billion. Facebooks average revenue per user has room to grow, and the company is still early in the game in exploiting the fast-growing online advertising industry. Importantly, it also owns other major social media businesses, including WhatsApp and Instagram. Its media empire generates a gross profit margin of 83 percent and an operating profit margin of 44 percent. Sure, the companys expansion pace is slowing, as tends to happen with companies that grow huge. Its also likely that its fat profit margins will shrink some as Facebook spends billions bulking up its data infrastructure and rolling out service improvements. But theres no social media business that can come close to claiming the community engagement Facebook has attracted, let alone its market-thumping earnings power. With its core business looking healthy, this stock could be poised for strong long-term gains. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Facebook.) rffHung UpMy dumbest investment was in the Finnish telecom Nokia. I read in a well-respected investment newsletter that the company would soon be closing a deal to sell equipment in Russia. But the market crash of 2008 sent Nokia shares down deep. I kept hanging in there, but finally got disgusted and took the loss. It was too much of a hassle, waiting on a loser. I still wish them luck. A.M., online The Fool Responds: Nokia was once a titan in the smartphone arena, boasting more than half the global market in 2007. By 2013, though, its share had dropped to 2 percent. The 2008-2009 market crash was not its sole problem, though its lunch was being eaten by Apple and Googles Android system. While other companies stocks recovered after the market crash, Nokias stock kept dropping for some years. Nokia is still a significant smartphone name, but its no longer making its own devices. It sold its smartphone business to HMD Global (a company run by former Nokia executives) and is licensing its name, which appears on the phones. Never invest in a stock just because of rumors youve heard about it and if its falling, be sure to do enough digging to find out whether its troubles seem temporary or lasting. Nokia still has believers today; they expect growth from deals with China-based companies and the rollout of new 5G networks. Share-Splitting MathQDoes it benefit shareholders when companies buy back shares? G.L., onlineAIt certainly can, as the reduction in the share count leaves each remaining share with a bigger stake in the company. (Imagine a pizza being cut into seven instead of eight pieces each piece will be bigger.) But the company should buy back shares only when theyre undervalued. If it buys back overvalued shares, it gets fewer shares for its money and destroys shareholder value. That money might have been better spent paying dividends or in some other way. Heres how buybacks work, in a simplified example: Imagine that Acme Explosives (ticker: KBOOM) earnings have stalled at $10 million annually, and it has 10 million shares outstanding. Its earnings per share (EPS) are thus $1. If Acme buys back a tenth of its shares, leaving 9 million, then its EPS suddenly rises to $1.11 ($10 million divided by 9 million). When studying a companys financials, its preferable to see earnings growing mostly due to business growth, not share buybacks. You can examine a companys income statement for signs of buybacks or look up news reports on them. Apple, for example, had 6.5 billion shares outstanding back in 2013, and its recent share count was 4.9 billion. That reflects share buybacks. ***QIf I buy shares of a stock after its date of record for a stock split, but before the actual split, will I get the additional shares? R.B., Dothan, AlabamaAYes. As long as youre holding the stock on the date of the split, your shares will be split increasing in number and decreasing in share price proportionately. The record date is mainly for accounting purposes.Want more information about stocks?

But beware of leveraged ETFs the ones that tend to have x or x in their names. First, though, understand what ETFs are. Theyre kind of like mutual funds (index funds, typically) that trade like stocks. You can buy or sell as little as a single share, as often as youd like during the trading day but youre often best served holding on to good ones for years, just as with stocks of great companies. Leveraged ETFs, though, are designed to deliver some multiple of the daily performance of whatever underlying index the ETF tracks. (A x fund, for example, seeks to double the indexs return.) But over time, daily movements in the underlying index can create losses for those who hold shares over longer periods of time even if the index rises overall. 2018 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

Expect to wait around when American Airlines cancels or delays flightBy HUGO MARTINLos Angeles TimesAmerican Airlines is taking some heat after an internal memo leaked telling employees that their first priority during delays or cancellations should be to get elite passengers to their destinations, even if it means using a competing airline, but economy passengers shouldnt get that option. The Fort Worth-based airline said it issued the memo because the policy, which it described as similar to the rebooking stance of some other carriers, had not been made clear to airport staff and was being executed inconsistently. Its important to note that it is the same policy as other airlines, American Airlines spokesman Curtis Blessing said. However, bloggers have complained that Americans move is more in line with discount carriers than with large airlines and further separates elite fliers from everyone else. Most major airlines have interline agreements, which outline how much rival airlines will pay one another to fly a competitors passengers in the case of flight delays or cancellations. To avoid writing a check to a competitor, an airline will rebook a passenger on a rival carrier only as a last option. Discount carriers dont usually have such agreements. Here is what to expect if an American Airlines flight is canceled or delayed for several hours, as outlined in the memo. The first priority is to rebook elite members of American Airlines AAdvantage program and business-class and firstclass passengers. The memo spells out the priority order, with Concierge Key status members at the top. Agents are instructed to try first to book such elite passengers on another American Airlines flight or with airlines that have close business ties with American Airlines, such as members of the same airline alliance. Do all possible to keep on (American Airlines) and (joint business partners), but allow fastest itinerary to final destination even if a competing airline must be used, the memo says of elite status fliers. Passengers who are described as non-elites, such as fliers in economy or basic economy seats, are at the bottom of the list and will not be flown on competitor airlines, the memo said. It outlines a few exceptions, such as unaccompanied minors, passengers with disabilities, members of the military and people traveling to a family event, such as a funeral or wedding, or flying to catch a cruise departure.Memo leaked telling employees their first priority during delays or cancellations should be to get elite passengers to their destinations.The Week Ahead: Be wary of easy explanationsBy TOM HUDSONMiami HeraldIf the interest rate jump over recent weeks didnt get the attention of investors, last weeks quick collapse of stock prices should have if for no other reason than the lack of a simple, obvious explanation. Over the course of a few trading sessions the S&P 500 and Nasdaq stock indices shed more than 4 percent each. Sure, the bond market sell-off has been worrisome, there are jitters over earnings season just beginning, and the trade war in China may be taking a toll. But do these wellknown and existing concerns really add up to a tipping point for investors? Or the economy? Probably not for the economy. The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlantas GDP Now gauge finds the American economy growing at more than 4 percent. Say what you will about the quality and pay of jobs, but unemployment is historically low. Retail sales and manufacturing data will be released in the week ahead. They will be dissected for signs of building inflation pressure, which has been blamed for the sell-off in the bond market. The stock market, though, is more capricious and myopic than the economy. The October sell-off came with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq at record highs. Thats tough to remember when the Dow Jones Industrial Average flashes triple digit losses at the closing bell, trade tensions between the U.S. and China remain on edge and President Trump says the Federal Reserve has gone crazy by raising interest rates. In the week ahead there will be no shortage of answers offered explaining the waning risk appetite of investors. Investors will vote with their money, not their voices.

By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comFrom road rash to far more gruesome special effects, Alexandria Waldron can make you look pretty awful. Horrible, even. The 17-year-old Columbia High School senior has been creating her special effects on friends, family and mostly herself for about five years as she continues to hone her art. She got started in the pursuit of creepy effects innocently enough even before high school. When Waldron was an eighth-grader, she had friends at Columbia High who were trying out for the schools drama club and Waldron got to see some of the makeup work backstage. That was all it took to pique her interest. I just got interested from there, she said. Since then shes continually worked on her special effects creations. Waldon, reflecting on her hobby, admitted it might be seen as odd by some. I mainly only do creepy stuff, but I am a little ghoulish, too, she said. I think my creations are really cool. Its a hobby I enjoy. If it would take off as a career, I guess I would enjoy doing it as a career. While Waldrons creations often showcase slashed faces and impaled bodies in gory detail, she said the performers generally like the look she creates for their character. Everyone who does always says, That looks so cool and it looks like I hurt myself, she said. Everyone tells me I need to do this as a career, but their main concern is if the liquid latex is going to get in their eyes. Waldron said it doesnt usually take long to finish her creations. Most of my work takes under an hour, she said. For her creations, Waldron often uses liquid latex, cotton and coffee grounds if creating a cut or torn flesh. For shading she often uses body paint and facial makeup. While some people shy away from the sight of blood or gore, those sights didnt deter Waldron, who happens to be the daughter of a pair of first responders. I think its cool to be able to make a face look completely different, Waldron said. I mainly do what looks like a real injury. Waldron, who said she is mostly self-taught, often works on herself, documenting the transformation with photos before taking it and going to bed. Sometimes I look at a picture and try to get an idea from it, but I never try to copy something I see exactly, she said. I like to put my own tricks on some things, but other than that Ive taught people how to do somethings, but Ive never formerly been taught how to do this. Waldron said shes had a few people call her and tell her they would like for her to do their Halloween makeup, but she hasnt decided whether she is going to whip up a special creation for herself. A taste for horrorCOURTESY PHOTOSLEFT: Cage mouth. Alexandria Waldron, a 17-year-old Lake City resident, used facial make up and other special effects tools to create this look. RIGHT: Alexandria created this effect to recreate the effect of a severe burn. Waldron said she got the inspiration from a Jonas Brothers song.Budding makeup artist is great at ghoulish CHS senior mostly self-taught in the art of the macabre. AlexandriaWorld War II vet comes home, 75 years after deathBy KAREN ANN CULLOTTAPioneer PressDevastated by his divorce and stunned by the attack on Pearl Harbor, auto mechanic Harry Carlsen climbed into his car and headed west to Los Angeles, where he enlisted in the Marines. Less than two years after the attack on Dec. 7, 1941, Tech. Sgt. Harry Bud Carlsen, 31, a native of suburban Brookfield, died in November 1943 during the Battle of Tarawa in the Pacific theater of World War II. His remains, along with those of 549 other Marines killed in the battle, were not identified or recovered for decades. Nearly 75 years after his death, Carlsen finally returned home. When his name would come up at family parties, my grandmother always got very quiet, as Harry was her brother, and even years later it was still very painful, said Ed Spellman, a great-nephew of Carlsen. On the afternoon of Wed., Oct. 10, Spellman gathered with members of his family and veterans from the area at OHare International Airport to greet the arrival of Carlsens remains with a heros welcome. His casket was accompanied by the Patriot Guard Riders as it traveled to a funeral home in Arlington Heights, where a wake will be held. We all would have preferred he had lived, but for our family, that was not one of the outcomes of the war, Spellman said. We all just kept hoping we would find him someday. The mission that eventually would unravel the mystery surrounding Carlsens remains did not begin until decades after the Marine was killed in action Nov. 20, 1943 the first day of the Battle of Tarawa on the small STACEY WESCOTT/Chicago Tribune/TNSA U.S. Marine honor guard carries the casket of Marine Tech.

DEAR ABBY: I am conflicted about boundaries being crossed between my family therapist and me. My 7-year-old son and I have been seeing someone we both bonded with and felt comfortable with. That is, until the therapist and I found each other on an online dating site. We matched a few months ago. Once I realized it was him, I felt embarrassed and blocked him on the site. He sent me an email within three minutes acknowledging that he knew it was me. He said he thought I was awesome and that I look better in person than in my pics. I was so embarrassed I didnt respond. A couple of months went by and neither of us brought it up. My son invited him to his birthday party and he did attend. It wasnt until later that I realized therapists are not supposed to attend social events with patients. We also text often, during late-night hours. A couple of weeks after my sons birthday party he tried matching with me again on the dating site. I was surprised and sent him a text asking him what he was doing. He responded by asking me if I was enjoying it, but did not answer my question. I do have a slight crush on him, but Im not sure what his intentions are. I am aware that its unethical. -UNETHICAL CRUSH DEAR UNETHICAL: You are correct that what the therapist has been doing is a breach of professional ethics. Patients are extremely vulnerable to manipulation. When the online flirtation first started, you should have changed therapists. Heaven only knows how many other patients he has done this with. My advice is to draw the line, establish a working relationship with another therapist, and decide whether you want to report him to the association that licensed him to practice. You may have a crush on him, but what he is doing is predatory. DEAR ABBY: Common manners are going extinct quicker than the dinosaurs did. I was raised to open doors, stand up for women sitting down at the table, etc. Nowadays opening the door for most women feels like getting slapped in the face. There is no acknowledgment of any kind. Has our society disintegrated that far? These days if I open the door for someone and she doesnt acknowledge the courtesy, I say, Thank you! loud enough for her to hear and watch the reaction. Im waiting for someone to slap me one day. -GOOD MANNERS IN TEXAS DEAR GOOD MANNERS: I agree that when a courtesy is extended, it should be acknowledged. However, if it isnt, shouting at someone is rude and makes you appear more like a petulant boor rather than the genteel individual your parents raised you to be. P.S. When a gentleman opens a door for me -old-fashioned girl that I am -I always thank him. Then I add, You were raised RIGHT! which is true, and we go our separate ways with a smile.

4D SU NDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2018 LIFE LAKE CITY REPORTER island of Betio. Carlsen was among the Marines and sailors who encounter ed formidable Japanese resistance as they attempted to secure the island over several days of intense fighting, according to the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency website. About 1,000 U.S. military personnel were killed and more than 2,000 were wounded during the three-day battle that left the Japanese virtually annihilated, officials said. Of the 16 million Americans who served in World War II, more than 400,000 died. By the wars end, 79,000 Americans who lost their lives were unaccounted for, officials said; more than 72,000 of them remain unaccounted for today. Efforts to identify Carlsen after his death included a search of family records and letters written by his mother, Amalia Carlsen, to the U.S. government, questioning the whereabouts of her sons remains and when they might be returned home, Spellman said. The government wrote back in a letter from 1947 that they were sorry, but they did not have them, Spellman said. In the wake of the Battle of Tarawa, U.S. service members who died in the fight were buried in a number of battlefield cemeteries on the island, according to the Defense POW/ MIA Accounting Agency. During remains recovery operations in 1946 and 1947, Carlsens remains were among those that were not identified, agency officials said. Even though the Marines dog tags were removed, his gravesite was ravaged and records were lost, the family learned that Carlsens unidentified remains were moved to a mausoleum in Hawaii in 1946 and reinterred in 1949 at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Hawaiis Punchbowl in grave E1212. Nearly six decades later, Carlsens niece, Nancy Spellman, who is Ed Spellmans mother, was looking for a hobby to occupy her time after moving from Arlington Heights to Marco Island, Fla., upon her retirement, Ed Spellman said. We had bought her a computer, which she didnt know how to use, but she figured it out, he said. She was troubled that we still knew nothing about what happened to her uncles remains, so she started to reach out to people online at military chat sites. Nancy Spellman was often frustrated as her efforts were stymied by what her son described as bureaucratic red tape as she sought answers from the U.S. government, Ed Spellman said. But she was encouraged by three private researchers who confirmed that Carlsens remains were likely found among those in grave E1212. The family then found a supporter in U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski. In 2009, the Democrat from Western Springs, Ill., called for renewed efforts to bring home the remains of the more than 500 U.S. service members who, like Carlsen, were killed in the Battle of Tarawa. I wanted the Department of Defense to do more about returning the remains of the servicemen killed in this battle, with the goal of returning 200 remains (from all branches of the military) every year, Lipinski said. When Lipinski heard from Carlsens family, he recalled, They had private organizations that had done some great research, but unfortunately, the government agency in charge was having a lot of internal problems at the time. Its a shame it took so long, but Im glad we were able to help this family finally have some closure after all of these years, the congressman added. Encouraged by Lipinskis initiative in 2009 and his support in Congress, Nancy Spellman shipped a DNA sample to Quantico, Va., hopeful that government officials would act to exhume the remains. At that point, my mother was ill with cancer, and she told me she still hoped that someday, we would find him, Ed Spellman said. But when youre dealing with a government agency, things happen painfully slow. Spellman said he rarely checks voicemail messages on the landline in his family home in St. Charles, so when he discovered an urgent message in July from the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency, he was flabbergasted. The call came out of the blue, and when I talked to them, they told me they had made a positive identification to my uncle with the DNA sample we had sent them, Spellman said. It pretty much knocked me over. While seven years have passed since his mother died in October 2011, Nancy Spellmans quest to bring her uncle home finally neared a conclusion Wednesday when Carlsens remains made it to OHare. As his casket arrived at an Arlington Heights funeral home, veterans from the area lined the road to salute Carlsens remains. World War II veteran Woody Hughes, 93, who said he fought in the Battle of Iwo Jima in 1945, stood beneath a steady drizzle as he awaited Carlsens arrival. People say Im a hero, but I tell them, No, Im not, because I survived, Hughes said. Those who were killed like (Carlsen) and never made it off the island are the real heroes. Ed Spellman said the moment represented a promise to my mother that I helped fulfill. The government should try to do everything they can to bring these remains back home because its so important and meaningful for families like ours, he said.

From staf f reports COURT EE SYFort White Middle School FFA members put their first aid skills to the test as they work with Columbia County Fire Rescue to assess the situation. This occurred during a Mock Farm Accident drill staged last month by the Fort White Senior FFA Chapter and CCFR.First aid on the farm for FW FFAFort White FFA recognized National Farm Safety Week by collaborating with Columbia County Fire Rescue to learn basic first aid skills. CCFR shared information on basic first aid skills for injuries such as lacerations, fractures, trauma and more. The chapter hoped that this will encourage its members to extend their knowledge in first aid in preparation for accidents such as these, and bring awareness to real-life scenarios that could happen to anyone while on the farm or in the classroom. Using the first aid skills learned, FFA members hosted a mock farm accident demonstration on September 27, where they set up accident scenarios that could occur while working in an agricultural setting. These scenarios included choking, simple lacerations, electrical shock, fainting, and an amputation. Members then visited each scenario to observe, assess and apply the learned skills to provide first aid for the injury using materials commonly found in first aid kits. The members are now working to create first aid kits to keep in the classroom as well as the Fort White High School Land Lab.
