The Reporter had collaborated since the 1980s with the chamber and, later, the college, to televise a political forum that informs Columbia County voters about the candidates on the ballot here. The Reporter first learned that the college and chamber had decided to cancel the event after contacting Mike McKee, who is both the colleges spokesperson and the chamber president. The Reporter texted McKee Wednesday morning seeking a status update on the forum. We just canceled it, McKee From A to F NRA grades run the gamutSTATE REP DISTRICT 10From staff reportsRepublican nominee Chuck Brannan, who carries an A rating from the NRA, got the groups endorsement in the race for District 10 state representative. Three of the four candidates for Florida House District 10 received grades from the NRA Political Victory Fund. Democratic nominee Ronald Williams II received a question mark as a grade for not answering the groups questionnaire, while non-party-affiliated contender Merrillee Malwitz-Jipson received an Fx grade, a new rating created for candidates who requested and received the endorsement of certain gun-control groups. Missing from the list was Fred Martin of Suwannee County, a non-party-affiliated candidate who describes himself as a card-carrying NRA member and donor. Martin said he received the NRA questionnaire in late May or early June and promptly sent it back. When he saw his name missing from the report card, Martin said he felt like his campaign was sunk.

TT hey said the cargo w as left untouched by the perpetrator, who drove nearly 200 miles south before abandoning the vehicle. Law enforcement said the rest of the loot was distributed to local residents in need through a weekly feeding program near their station.Krispy Kreme van, stolen here, recovered in Clearwater BrannanBy COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comYou can call it the Krispy Kreme caper, after an unknown perp stole a donut delivery van and seemingly took it on a joyride. The van belonged to a Gainesville Krispie Kreme store. The driver left it sitting idle as he made a weekly donut drop-off to a Lake City convenience store Tuesday morning. An opportunist took notice and stole the vehicle, along with its freshly baked cargo. Taken from the parking lot of the S&S on SE Marion Avenue and SE Baya Drive, the van was found nearly 200 miles south, abandoned at a park in Clearwater with its sweet shipment still intact, law enforcement said. A joint operation investigation is now underway between the Clearwater Police Department and Lake City Police, but little information was known that might shine a light on the incident. Lake City Public Information Officer Mike Lee said they are waiting on surveillance footage from store security cameras. The driver reported (the theft), said Lee. He went in to make a delivery, he left his van running with the keys left in, and someone jumped in it and drove off. Lee said the van was stolen at about 5 a.m., and the LCPD was notified when Clearwater police found it in the afternoon. Clearwater Public Information Officer Rob Shaw said CPD officers spotted the van bearing the Krispy Kreme logo and noted that it fit the description of a be on the look out bulletin, or BOLO, issued earlier that day. Shaw said an officer found it about 2 p.m., and along with a second officer, checked the van for an occupant and keys, but found neither. He said the park was located in a residential neighborhood off a major Clearwater thoroughfare. Investigators lifted fingerprints off the van, and searched the vehicle and found nothing unusual, Shaw said.

Kevin Michael Niren, 48, died at the scene of the State Road 47/NE 40th Court crash, FHP said. Niren was heading south on SR 47 in a 2001 Ford Explorer when he ran off the road about 2:30 a.m., according to a press release. The Ford spun across both lanes of SR 47 before traveling onto the east shoulder, where it flipped twice and hit a power pole, the release said. Niren was not wearing a seat belt and alcohol tests are pending, according to FHP. From staff reports Endorsement goes to Chuck Brannan.

Theres a feeding that goes on here a couple of evenings a week, Shaw said. [The police] were able to take much of the food over there and treat the locals to that. He said their officers, defying stereotypes, enjoyed only a marginal amount of the haul before handing over the bulk for distribution by the homeless program. Anytime you can help the people out on the streets by giving them food that might otherwise go to waste, thats a wonderful thing, Shaw said. The donuts were delivered from Krispy Kreme off 306 NW Street in Gainesville. A store employee said route managers went to Clearwater Wednesday to retrieve the van. DONUTSContinued From 1A responded an hour later. McKee said he was speaking on behalf of the chamber and the college but would not elaborate. FGC President Lawrence Barrett also declined comment but said a joint statement would be issued later. It has come to our attention that the Candidate Forums hosted and televised by Florida Gateway College and organized by the Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce each election cycle have become a source of controversy and contention, the statement reads. As a result, the integrity of the institutions involved has been called into question. With this in mind, and in an effort to avoid any appearance of impropriety, we have decided that the best course of action is to discontinue the 30-year tradition of holding Candidate Forums at FGC. Neither organization will provide further comment. That came as news to Lake City Reporter Publisher Todd Wilson. I am not aware of any controversy surround ing this candidate forum with which the Lake City Reporter has been a partner since its inception in the early-1980s, Wilson said. With the college and the chamber out, the Reporter will carry on the tradition alone, he said. We plan to go forward with the candidate forums, Wilson said. We will broadcast a Lake City Reporter Candidate Forum via the internet before early voting begins for the general election. The citizens will hear from their candidates. Wilson said the principle at stake was important. It is our responsibility to preserve the publics right to know and we will be the advocate for the business community and the citizens of this county just as we always have been, he said. The college hosted its last forum in early August, featuring candidates in the primary election. The Reporters forum for the general election will be the same format. A date will be announced in the coming days. On the November ballot in Columbia County, four candidates are running for the state House and four candidates are vying for two school board seats. All eight candidates have been invited to the Reporters forum, which will be held at its office on East Duval Street.

They screwed me, Martin said. I dont know what else to say. Marion Hammer, the NRAs chief lobbyist in Tallahassee, said the group grades candidates who represent a significant segment of people. Brannan said he was proud to be one of a handful of state House candidates endorsed by the NRA. Im a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, he said. I believe that it anchors the other amendments. Williams said he spent more than 22 years in the U.S. Marine Corps and described himself as a gunrights supporter who sees no use for the NRA. Ive shot big guns, Ive shot small guns, and I dont need the NRA to tell me what to do with gun control and gun safety, he said. I grew up around guns, Im an avid hunter but I also got some sense to know when guns are dangerous or not. Malwitz-Jipson said she received an endorsement from Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. I will wear the Fx grade as a badge of honor that reflects many of us moms, dads and society that are concerned about the gun violence that plagues the United States of America, she wrote in a text message. NRAContinued From 1A Assignment of benefits, or AOB as it is widely known, involves policyholders signing over benefits to contractors, who ultimately pursue payments from insurance companies for repairs. The insurance industry and business groups have unsuccessfully lobbied the Legislature in recent years to change the assignment-of-benefits process, arguing that it leads to fraud, litigation and increased costs. Pointing to dangers of signing over benefits after Hurricane Michael, an organization known as the Consumer Protection Coalition said Wednesday it is starting a public-service announcement campaign in Panama City and Tallahassee advising residents to contact their insurance agents before signing any insurance-related documents. The coalition includes major business and insurance groups. The Consumer Protection Coalition is committed to helping residents get through the difficulty of putting their lives back together, Mark Wilson, president and CEO of the Florida Chamber of Commerce, which leads the coalition, said in a prepared statement. Consumers need all the information they can get to help navigate making repairs to their homes and vehicles, and were working hard to provide resources to help prevent Floridians from becoming victims of AOB scams. But restoration contractors and plaintiffs attorneys contend that assignment of benefits can help homeowners quickly hire contractors to repair damage and force insurers to properly pay claims. The Restoration Association of Florida, an industry group, issued a news release Wednesday pushing back against efforts by business and insurance groups to dissuade residents from using assignment of benefits. We are extremely concerned about multiple advisories warning homeowners not to sign any contracts containing assignment of benefits language, Amanda Prater, a spokeswoman for the association, said in a prepared statement. The assignment of benefit language is perfectly legal and is an extremely common insurance practice. AOBContinued From 1AHurricane adds fuel to fight over AOB FILEThe damage from HH urricane Michael in Mexico Beach.The Florida Healthy Kids Corp. Board of Directors is expected Thursday to consider waiving childrens health-insurance premiums for three months in a dozen counties slammed last week by Hurricane Michael. Gov. Rick Scott, state Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis and Agency for Health Care Administration Secretary Justin Senior are backing the move, which could waive premiums for about 5,600 children in three insurance programs, according to an estimate posted on the Florida Healthy Kids website. Most of the children are in subsidized programs in which they qualify for low-cost health insurance because of their family income levels, while about 325 children are in families that pay the full premiums. The proposed premium waiver would be for November, December and January in Holmes, Washington, Bay, Jackson, Calhoun, Gulf, Gadsden, Liberty, Franklin, Leon, Wakulla and Taylor counties, according to a letter that Senior sent Tuesday to Florida Healthy Kids Corp. CEO Rebecca Matthews. The cost of waiving the premiums would be about $3.58 million, the information posted on the Florida Healthy Kids website said.

OPINION Justices who actually believe in the Constitution are now a majority on the Supreme Court and could maybe hang in there for a couple of decades. And some leftists ar e scared to the point of wanting to redefine the institution into a mud puddle. After all, its now going to be trickier for ideological supremacists to sidestep the rule of law, and yes, some of the proposed revisions would do just that. But the disabling project still must go on, the bold and dangerous say, and, if that requires an eviscerated republic, please understand that, in some minds, a more nagging issue is to assure unhampered, socialistic, big-government power. The fear of the moment emanates largely from Brett Kavanaugh squeezing through Democratic mania to get on the court. The Democratic senators violated every other rule in the book in the early going as they kept the committee chairman from even completing a sentence. Among the spectators were zanies screeching inanities as proof of their adulatory citizenship. Then came the last-minute allegations, including the assertion that, 36 years ago, Kavanaugh as a teenager had attempted rape of a teenage girl. The deeply troubled woman making the charge elicited sympathy with her surely sincere tearfulness, but she had been callously manipulated by political activists. A vital document was kept secret, the story did not add up and evidence was lacking. Imagine that this becomes the way of things and that, at some point, we have women telling us about every other Democratic congressman groping them, forcibly kissing them and attacking them except that, wait a minute, there is no evidence and none of it adds up and these women happen to be Republicans. Well, so what? Since the hearings, it has been maintained that Kavanaugh lied even though the particularities have been refuted to the degree possible. It is said we saw a terrible temperament in the last session, but imagine that you and your family were standing at cliffs edge, that a bevy of sword-swingers was closing in on you, that you were armed with just a stick and poked them occasionally. I am not horrified. The fact is that Kavanaughs exemplary life and professionalism have been praised by just about everyone who has known him well and that he is nowhere near the extremist some pretend he is. In a sterling speech, Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine made as much clear, noting that he had testified he would support rulings on gay marriage, Obamacare, Roe v. Wade and checks on presidential power. In his 12 years on the D.C. Court of Appeals, she observed, he had voted the same as Judge Merrick Garland 93 percent of the time. Garland, of course, was President Barack Obamas Supreme Court nominee who did not even get a hearing from the Republican-controlled Senate for almost a year. And its not as if a 7 percent difference cannot be significant. But that hardly justifies a pronounced wish to impeach Kavanaugh, thus wrecking our checks-and-balances system. The Constitution allows the proceeding only for misdeeds committed as a justice, and if you get into a backand-forth game, the court could soon be little more than a political tool. It would be hard to pull impeachment off, but, with Democrats in control of both congressional houses and the presidency, an easy possibility would be packing the court, as in adding justices to put your druthers in command. The Constitution does not prohibit as much. What does is avoidance of havoc, keeping court politics at a minimum and love of America. Suggested term limits would make the judges more amenable to popular sentiment over what the law says and the idea of states disobeying the court would help make tyranny king. True enough, President Donald Trump as the GOP leader is a collection of widely denied positives here offset by atrocious negatives over there, and therefore his toughest critics are saying lets forget civility, promote threatening mobs, cheer on scare-mongering Antifa thugs and dismember government to better suit our objectives. May the saner cause of moderate deliberation win.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman ANOTHER VIEW Another skirmish at the O.K. CorralOnly in Donald Trumps America could the same pundits and journalists who scream and shout at the president on a daily basis at the White House fashion themselves arbiters of decorum without realizing their own hypocrisy. After rapper Kanye Wests off the cuff rant in the Oval Office, they were up in arms. How dare he touch the timbers of the USS Resolute in the presidents desk? How dare he drop the f-bomb in this sacred space? They scream and shout at the president while he walks with his wife under an umbrella in the rain. Yet when he leaves the first lady to talk to them, he is ridiculed for leaving her in the rain to talk to them instead of ignoring their persistent wails. Journalists on the left who installed a halo over Kanye Wests head when he said George Bush doesnt care about black people, during a live television fundraiser in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, are skewering the rapper now for his fervent support of President Trump. In 2005, Mr. West was praised for animating the cliche, speaking truth to power. Louisiana state health officials say blacks in Orleans Parish alone have a mortality rate up to four times higher than whites ages 18 and up. I was very emotional, said Mr. West of his remarks then and I was programmed to think from a victimized mentality of a welfare mentality. His speaking truth to power 13 years later in the office of a Republican president has apparently given the media no choice but to take back his halo, and go bonkers. The celebrated rapper riffed on everything from 4D chess to a prototype iPlane to replace Air Force One, and said President Trump might not have expected to have a crazy man like Kanye West to support him. Cable-TV pontificators lit into the rapper. Don Lemon, the angry voice of CNN, speculated that Kanye Wests mother is rolling over in her grave in family shame. Instead of exploring the point of the West remarks, that a liberal will try to control a black person through the concept of racism, Mr. Lemon called the rappers lunch at the White House a minstrel show, and said this is not normal, and we need to stop sitting here pretending that its normal. Lost in the angst over the West remarks of betrayal of the Democrats was what he actually said about police brutality and the murder rate in places like Chicago. Black people have to take responsibility for what were doing, Mr. West said. We kill each other more than [the police kill us]. And thats not saying that a police officer is not an issue. The president often cites Chicago as a worst case crime city, but in the second year of his presidency, homicides there are down 22 percent and shootings have decreased by 28 percent, according to Chicago police data compared to the previous year. That still accounts for 78 murders and 286 shootings in the first two months of 2018. Instead of talking about the issues Mr. West brought up, from prison reform to mental health, Cable-TV stuck to what it knows best, rants and lambast. MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle called the freewheeling rappers remarks an assault on our White House. The division between the right and left press is real, and the middle ground certainly does not necessarily lie with the president. But Mr. Trump fights back, and both president and press give as good as they get. It was ever thus.Sacrificing the Supreme Court Jay Ambrosespeaktojay@aol.comHow Sears could have avoided bankruptcyThe most impressive statement to make about Sears as it seeks bankruptcy court protection is also the most damning: Sears was the Amazon of its time. Impressive because Sears really was that influential long ago. Damning because the companys decline wasnt preordained. Sears could have maintained pre-eminence and, in the digital era, elbowed out Amazon and other retailers. Some companies do preserve and build on success through reinvention. Look at McDonalds, to choose another great Chicagoarea company that has survived challenges and remains the iconic name in its industry. There was no law that said the biggest hamburger chain of the 20th century should still be competitive in 2018. McDonalds kept up with changing consumer demands. Sears instead became a victim as its customers found other retailers who would better meet their needs. On Sunday night, Hoffman Estates-based Sears filed for bankruptcy protection. The companys future now likely rests with outsiders, including its creditors and a federal judge. The dominance Sears squandered is breathtaking to consider. Richard Sears and Alvah Roebuck founded the company in 1893 a remarkable 125 years ago to sell watches by mail. As recently as the 1960s, Sears was known as the colossus and paragon of American retailing. By 1972, 2 of every 3 Americans shopped at Sears in any three-month period, and more than half of households had a Sears credit card, according to The Big Store, an engaging 1987 biography of the company by Donald R. Katz. The Sears Tower rose in downtown Chicago as a lasting monument to the invincibility and boundlessness and extreme profitability of a company that now accounted for fully 1 percent of the Gross National Product, Katz wrote. Parallels to Amazon are uncanny: Almost 2 out of 3 U.S. adults purchased something via Amazon in a three-month period in 2017, according to market researcher Packaged Facts. Amazons $177 billion in revenue last year is in the neighborhood of 1 percent of GNP. And like the announcement that Sears would erect the worlds tallest building in Chicago, Amazon soon will make a dramatic pronouncement in real estate terms about its own boundlessness when it chooses a location for a second headquarters. Wouldnt it be fitting if Amazon chose Chicago? Sears slowly but surely lost relevance. It could have morphed into another Walmart or Target or Amazon that is, it could have kept Chicago the Goliath of retailing cities yet missed every opportunity. The last decade was one long slide downward. Now its existence is on the line. The most impressive statement about the company may now be its epitaph: Once and long ago, Sears was a mighty retailer.

By JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE When Fort White quarterback Dylan Blair went down with a foot injury against Union County on Friday night, Tiwahe Nation held its collective breath. I thought I was done for, like this cant happen to me, Blair said. Luckily for the Indians, he wasnt. Blair got his foot wrapped up and missed just six snaps before coming back in to lead Fort White (5-2) to a 21-15 come-from-behind victory. Receiver Rahman Paul caught a 40-yard touchdown from Blair with 48 seconds left for the go-ahead score to push the Indians to their third straight win. It felt amazing. It was a thrill, Blair said. The next morning? Not so much. Blair says he woke up Saturday in a lot of pain and could barely walk. But Fort White fans shouldnt worry Blair has been a fullgo at practice this week, icing his ankle and doing exercises to reduce swelling, and he will start this Friday against Dixie County. Still, Blairs injury Friday created plenty of concern for Fort Whites coaching staff. The Indians offense was a disaster once Blair got hurt and backup Brayden Summers took over. Summers came in for three plays, which included two bad snaps, before he was injured when a Union County defender rolled into his ankle chasing him down. That led to fullback Kameron Calhoun running the wildcat for three more plays, which included him getting stopped on a fourth down-and-short, before Blair was finally able to return. As a result, Summers and Calhoun have both been getting extra snaps at quarterback this week just in case anything happens to Blair again. Im all right right now, Blair said.

PREP FOOTBALL HONOR FOR LCRBy ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comColumbias starters didnt need a full contest to leave their mark on Atlantic Coast. With the Tigers leading 44-0 at halftime last Friday, and the game already out of reach, the second unit was summoned to the field and closed out the district matchup with a 57-7 victory. With only three more regular season games left and the postseason looming, the Tigers continue to build quality depth at various position groups, trying to get their football squad as sound as possible before the state playoffs begin next month. Its a big reason for their play, Columbia head coach Brian Allen said of the second team. But also at the same time, these kids are out here all summer, January until the end, so they definitely put in the same work. At the end of the day, at the high school level and beyond, somebody is going to get the [starting] nod and somebodys not. My mindset whenever I have an opportunity in football games to get those guys deserved, earned reps then I am going to take advantage of that. Columbia (6-1) has made a strong effort to develop its backups, especially on the defensive side of the ball. Linebacker Ethan Umstead and defensive lineman Daylon Lumpkin suffered injuries earlier this season, forcing reserve players like Terrick Ponds and Pharaoh Baker to step up. Both have combined for 33 tackles in seven games, providing added depth to Columbias already fierce front seven.GOOD COMPANYColumbia continues to build depth at multiple positions during stretch run of season.When: Friday at 7:30 p.m. Series record: Columbia leads 22-12 Last year: Columbia won 42-27FLETCHER (6-1) AT COLUMBIA (6-1) CHS continued on 6BFrom staff reportsLake City Reporter staff writer Eric Jackson has been selected to join the APSEs Diversity Fellows Class of 2018-19.

The Dodgers took a 3-2 lead in the NL Championship Series, boosted by Max Muncys go-ahead single in the sixth inning. Kershaw held the lead, scoring an insurance run in the seventh and then exiting. Game 6 is Friday night in Milwaukee. The Brewers will start left-hander Wade Miley, who walked Cody Bellinger to open Game 5 before getting pulled in an interesting piece of strategy by manager Craig Counsell. Lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu will go for the Dodgers. The teams reconvened less than 15 hours after the Dodgers eked out a 2-1 victory Tuesday night on Cody Bellingers RBI single with two outs in a 13-inning game that lasted over five hours. Kershaw was well-rested and masterful in allowing one run and three hits over seven. He struck out nine, all on breaking pitches, and walked two. The three-time NL Cy Young Award winner pitched in and out of trouble in the third, when the Brewers loaded the bases and scored their lone run. Kershaw struck out Jesus Aguilar to end the third, the first of 13 consecutive batters that the left-hander retired. Curtis Granderson hit an RBI double in the ninth. Kenley Jansen, the Dodgers third pitcher of the ninth, came in for the last two outs and the save. Brewers star Christian Yelich, who nearly won the NL Triple Crown this season, was hitless in four at-bats. He is 3 for 20 without an RBI in the NLCS. The Dodgers offense broke loose with five runs over the fifth, sixth and seventh innings that had the sellout crowd of 54,502 on its feet whipping blue towels and cheering loudly. The team that hit a franc hise and NL-leading 235 home runs in the regular season did it playing small ball instead, driving in all but one of its runs on singles.

American sports magnate Shad Khan abandoned a 600 million pound ($790 million) bid for the English Football Associations main asset on Wednesday after recognizing the extent of opposition to the sale. Khan, who owns the NFLs Jacksonville Jaguars and Premier League soccer club Fulham, had seen buying Wembley as way of raising the prospects of an American football franchise moving to London. After the takeover fell through a week before a key FA vote, Khan reiterated the Jaguars commitment to continue playing an annual regular-season game in London, but only as a home away from home. The FA was under no financial pressure to sell the 11-year-old stadium but seized on Khans interest as a chance to fund soccer facilities in communities across England while retaining the use of Wembley for national team matches and domestic cup finals.ORLANDO Bamba, Gordon lead Magic over HeatRookie Mohamed Bamba dunked twice and blocked a shot during Orlandos 9-0 run in the fourth quarter and the Magic held on for a 104-101 win over the Miami Heat in the NBA season opener for both teams Wednesday night. Aaron Gordon had 26 points and 16 rebounds for the Magic, who went without a field goal over the final 4 1/2 minutes. The 7-foot Bamba finished with 13 points and seven rebounds in his NBA debut. Goran Dragic led Miami with 26 points and Josh Richardson added 21.ORCHARD PARK, N.Y.Anderson to start at QB in place of Allen for BillsA week after being lured out of semiretirement, veteran quarterback Derek Anderson is going from mentoring Buffalo Bills rookie Josh Allen, to tak ing over the starting job for the injured player. Coach Sean McDermott made the announcement Wednesday, when Buffalo returned to practice to prepare for its game at Indianapolis (1-5) on Sunday. McDermott ruled out Allen because of a sprained elbow on his throwing arm. He said theres no plan at this point for the quarterback to have surgery. McDermott also said a sec ond medical opinion on the injury confirmed the initial diagnosis after the first-round pick was hurt in the third quarter of a 20-13 loss at Houston last week.NEW YORK Officiating not a hot topic in owners meetingsNFL officiating was not a hot topic in the formal owners meetings that ended Wednesday, Commissioner Roger Goodell noted. There was talk on several occasions in the context of what the competition committee is looking to propose and implement and how to adjust to those rules, Goodell said. But there were no formal discussions on the floor during the two-day meetings. Officiating has been a super-tense issue this season, in part because of several rules changes or points of emphasis, particularly regarding roughing the passer and helmet use in tackling. Criticism of calls has come from almost everywhere: players, coaches, owners, media and fans. They reached a fevered pitch in September when Clay Matthews drew two flags for roughing the passer and reaction ranged from rage to describing the calls as text book tackles.CHARLOTTE, N.C. Larson facing playoff elimination after penaltyKyle Larson has been docked 10 points by NASCAR for a rules violation that could bring an end to his championship chances. Chip Ganassi Racing was penalized for breaking NASCARs policy on damaged vehicles during the race at Talladega Superspeedway. The points deduction announced Wednesday drops Larson to 36 points below the cutoff for the final transfer position to the third round of the playoffs. NASCAR will cut the playoff field from 12 to eight drivers following Sundays race at Kansas. Larson crew chief Chad Johnston was fined $25,000 for the infraction and car chief David Bryant was suspended one race. Associated Press

LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2018 3B DEAR ABBY: I am suf fering from a depression I thin k many mothers expe rience when they become emp ty nesters. Although my husband is support ive, I miss my 18-year-old so m uch that sometimes Im tempted to drive to his college in Florida. My husband and I have always wanted to live in a warmer climate, but he doesnt like the humidity in Florida. We had planned to move to Arizona once my son went away to college, but now Im having second thoughts because the drive to Arizona from Orlando is twice the distance, and I dont think I can take his being that far away. I have good job offers in Arizona, and family there as well, so I know it would be a healthier place for me to be. I just cannot reconcile with the fact that my son will be so far away. He will be in college in Orlando for the next five years, as he is in a masters degree engineer ing program. Am I being ov erprotective? Hes my only son. I have real anx ieties about this and have be en seeing a counselor as well as my doctor, who prescribed a mild antide pressant. Is this normal? Sh ould I stay put? Should I move? INDECISIVE IN ILLINOIS DEAR INDECISIVE: While some degree of empty-nest syndrome is normal, what you are expe riencing is not. Keep the con versation open with your husband about relo cating to Arizona. Your son ne eds a chance to become independent as much as you need the time to allow it to happen. You say your husband cant tolerate the Florida humidity. Is it your intention to impose it on him for the next five years? It would create unnecessary stress on your marriage. Further, what will happen after your son earns his degrees and is offered a job elsewhere? Do you plan to move again to be close to him? Continue your counseling and meds. And while youre at it, find a volunteer project so you wont have time to sit and brood. With time, your anxiety will subside, and you will become less emotionally dependent upon your son which will be healthier for both of you. DEAR ABBY: I have read many of your columns and enjoyed them. These days though, you seem to hear from more and more people who are afraid of saying what needs to be said. I suspect it can be chalked up to the be politically correct nature of our country lately. But why is it that when people do speak their minds, others consider them rude? I let people know when they are disrespectful to me in public, and I dont put up with being put down. Am I wrong in feeling that people who say mean things need to be immediately cor rected? Or am I really being rude? FARMGIRL IN MISSOURI DEAR FARMGIRL: You are not wrong, and it is not rude if you choose to defend yourself. What you are being is assertive, which is a healthy personality trait. No one should have to accept as nor mal social interaction being made t o feel less than in public. If someone has a bone to pick with you and vice versa it should be done in private. Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com Empty-nest syndrome is an unhealthy fixation for mom 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): Consider the possibilities and call in the help you need to get things done. Collaborating with people who are innovative and show interest in what you are doing will lead to future endeavors. Don't fear change; embrace what's being offered. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Know what you are up against and who is on your side. Pick your associates carefully and for the right reasons. Don't let emotions interfere in doing what's best. Partnerships should be questioned if equality isn't maintained. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The goals you set will require energy, enthusiasm and determination, but in the end, you can come out on top if you are relentless and refuse to let what others do interfere with your plans. Don't let uncertainty hold you back. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Be aware of what others want you to do, but don't go against your better judgment to please. Stick to your plan, and use your intelligence, not your emotions, to make choices. You can be thoughtful and loving without giving in. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Focus on your needs, and refrain from getting involved in something you know isn't good for you in order to keep the peace. Focus on saving and doing things that will ensure you remain healthy and fit. Be good to yourself. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Talk matters through. You'll be able to make plans with someone you want to spend more time with. Love, romance and long-term partnerships are favored and will encourage making positive changes that will enhance your life. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don't give in to someone pressuring you to do things you don't want to do. Set the record straight and speak up about what you want. Change begins within, and it's time for you to follow your heart, not someone else's demands. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Think twice before making a decision that will affect those you live with. An emotional situation will surface if you haven't been up-front about your plans. Find a positive way to convey your ideas that offers something for everyone involved. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sharing with others may undermine what you are trying to accomplish. Someone is likely to use your openness against you. Don't be gullible or you will end up in a compromising position. Do your own thing to avoid interference. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don't limit what you can do because someone is being pushy or creating unexpected changes to make your life difficult. Form plans and set priorities. It's up to you to say no when someone or something is working against you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Look over your personal finances and the deals you have made or the ones you are considering. Consider the costs involved and alternative choices that will save you from excessive expenses. Moderation is favored, emotional spending is not. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Check the rules and regulations before you get involved in something that may not be up to institutional standards. Doing things by the book will lead to positive changes and opportunities that will encourage personal gains. Don't reveal personal secrets. Actress Dawn Wells is 80. Singer Russ Giguere is 75.

Kentuckys PJ Washington says coach John Calipari has chilled out at practice leading up to the season. It doesnt take as much yelling from coaches when you have a little seasoning and maturity on the roster, qualities that the Wildcats and other top Southeastern Conference teams are banking on to match or even better the leagues strong 2017-18 season. Calipari says he hasnt had to raise his voice yet in practice. Last year it was pretty much every day but this year hes kind of chilled out a little bit, Washington said Wednesday at SEC media day. We have experience obviously. Seriously? No yelling? Im shocked, too, Washington said. Hes usually screaming every five seconds. Now, hes just stopping practice and trying to teach young guys what to do. It helps when theyre not all young guys. Stanford grad transfer Reid Travis, a two-time All-Pac-12 performer, brought a wealth of experience to the lineup. There are plenty of highly touted freshmen in Lexington and around the league, of course. But a number of standouts returned, too, including reigning SEC player of the year Grant Williams at Tennessee, Arkansas Daniel Gafford, Auburns Jared Harper, Floridas Jalen Hudson and LSUs Tremont Waters. The SEC proved its back as a basketball power last season, sending a record eight teams to the NCAA Tournament. Optimism abounds again going into this season, with coaches not being shy about trumpeting the leagues strength. The league top to bottom has probably never been stronger, Calipari said. Top-heavy, too. Crazy. Added Mississippi States Ben Howland: I cant say enough about our league. This league is going to be so good this year. As good as it was last year, this years group is going to be even better. LSU coach Will Wade said last year there were a number of good teams, and now there are some that can be elite. Plenty of players explored entering the NBA draft after last season but opted to return. Tennessee and Auburn shared the SEC regular season title and return most of their top players. The Volunteers return all five starters and are led by Williams and senior Admiral Schofield. That experience prompts Howland to proclaim: Theres no doubt theyre the team to beat in our conference. Auburn lost leading scorer Mustapha Heron, who transferred to St. Johns. Harper and Bryce Brown returned while center Austin Wiley and forward Danjel Purifoy are back after being ineligible last season. Austin is as big, as strong, as fast and as mobile as any big guy in the country, said Auburn coach Bruce Pearl, whose team is no longer undersized. Wiley is recovering from a foot injury that could sideline him early in the season. Purifoy is still ineligible for the first nine games. The Tigers snapped a 15-year NCAA Tournament drought last season. Then theres Kentucky. Washington, Quade Green and Nick Richards are among the returnees. Travis is the Wildcats only preseason first-team All-SEC pick. The Wildcats are the preseason league favorites as usual. But teams like Tennessee and Auburn are potential preseason top 10 teams, too. For all the returning veterans, theres also a strong wave of incoming talent. Kentucky brought in the nations No. 2 recruiting class with four five-star recruits, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. LSU was ranked No. 4, led by five-star forwards Nazreon Reid and Emmitt Williams, and teams like Vanderbilt, Mississippi State and Florida also had highly rated classes. The Gators (Andrew Nembhard) and Commodores (Darius Garland) both signed five-star point guards. I think we have some really good incoming freshmen and I think we have some terrific veterans that have had a big impact on the league, Calipari said. The teams that won the league last year have most of their players back. We finally have a couple of returning players. Its been awhile.CURTIS COMPTON/Atlanta Journal-Constitution Kentuckys Quade Green hits a 3-pointer against Kansas State in an NCAA Tournament regional semifinal on March 22 at Philips Arena in Atlanta. doing it just in case (I get hurt again) so Brayden can know whats going on. Summers knows it too, despite still battling through his ankle injury. He says hes ready to go should anything happen and knows he needs to be because theres no other quarterback on the roster Im the only second string weve got now, Summer said. Im the only backup weve got. Should Blair and Summers ever both go down for an extended period of time, Fort White has a backup plan besides just Calhoun. Head coach Demetric Jackson actually gave receivers Terrance Jones and Myles McClain some snaps at quarterback during the teams bye week two weeks ago. The two played a little bit of quarterback in middle school and could be break-glass-incase-of-emergency options if the Indians ever lose Blair and Summers again. Jones or McClain could have even been options last Friday, but Jackson said they both slipped his mind in the tense moments of the game. If something happens to our quarterback we have to be able to go, especially with Brayden already nursing a sore ankle, Jackson said. Dylan at any moment can take a cheap shot and hes out so I kind of worked on that (during the bye week). But in that moment the other night, I didnt even think about Terrance or Myles. It just completely skipped my mind. I was like, Kam go to quarterback. He was like, Huh? Coach Ive never played quarterback. I was like Just do what I tell you to do. Calhoun could even be told to run some wildcat against Dixie County on Friday. Its all up to Coach Jackson, Calhoun said. Every play weve got is good. Weve just got to come out and run them right 100 percent, every play. HOLDING ON: Fort White rose to sixth in Region 1-3A in the latest FHSAA points standings released on Tuesday. The Indians currently sit with an average of 36.86, jumping ahead of Episcopal (35.43). Florida State is still in first (43.00). Baldwin (39.57), St. Joseph (39.13), Pensacola Catholic (37.88) and Taylor County (37.14) round out the rest of the current playoff field with Fort White. We worked on it (Wednesday) a little bit just to see where were at, Jackson said. We could end up at three. I dont think we can get to one or two, just based on the games left. Its a slim possibility to get to three. A win over Dixie would give us quite a bit of points because theyre a category one, but if they lose theyll drop down to category two. Its not that big of a deal losing to a category one or beating a category two but those five points matter at the end of the day. The Indians admit theyre frustrated theyre behind Taylor County, which they defeated 27-12 on Sept. 14. But Jackson believes a win over Dixie County should bump his team to fifth. We think just based on how Taylors schedule going to flow out, if we beat Dixie well moved ahead of Taylor, Jackson said. Were looking at catching Pensacola Catholic. You dont want the five or the six seed because now youve got to travel. So if we get the fourth seed then well at least have one home game.JORDAN KROEGER/Lake City ReporterFort White fullback Kameron Calhoun runs up the field out of the wildcat formation on Wednesday.

6B THURSDA Y, OCTOBER 18, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER NFLJags bring back training camp practices amid losing streakBy MARK LONGAssociated PressJACKSONVILLE The Jacksonville Jaguars are back in training camp mode after consecutive lopsided losses. Coach Doug Marrone said Wednesday they will spend the week trying to correct a lot of bad football that we have been playing. The Jaguars (3-3) have been outscored 70-21 in road losses to Kansas City and Dallas, failing to score in the first half of both games and allowing a combined 802 yards and 49 first downs. Marrone deflected questions about AFC South rival Houston (3-3), which plays in Jacksonville on Sunday, and said hes more focused on football fundamentals. It doesnt matter who the hell you are playing, Marrone said. You have to get your ship right. You have to get your stuff in house right. Jacksonville looked lost on both sides of the ball against the Chiefs and Cowboys. The usually stout defense got gouged on the ground and picked apart by big plays. The offense was even worse, with Blake Bortles turning the ball over six times and getting sacked eight times. The injury-riddled offensive line was the main issue again. Receivers also failed to create separation and get open, and running back Leonard Fournette missed his fourth game with a strained right hamstring. The Jaguars are now down their top two left tackles, their top two tight ends, two of their top three running backs and their No. 1 receiver. Those injuries have forced the team to sign three guys off practice squads and five off the street. We cant use that as an excuse, Marrone said. We have to go out there and find things that they can do well and we have to do that in a short period of time to be able to go out there and perform well enough or execute well enough to do it. Marrone shouldered much of the blame for his teams most recent performances and insisted things would change against the Texans, who won six in a row in the series until getting swept in 2017. The message that flashed on television screens around the facility read humility is not thinking less of yourself. Its thinking of yourself less. A more rare sight: at least six assistant coaches roamed the locker room during lunchtime to mingle with player. The biggest difference came on the practice field. There was no other choice but to work hard today, linebacker Myles Jack said. They got the most out of us. It was like a camp practice. Camp is basically about fundamentals, Day 1 teaching, so I think that was the common mindset: lets reset, lets go back to square one. Not everyone thought significant changes were needed. Linebacker Telvin Smith stood firm on his belief that everything is fine on the field and inside the locker room. This whole week is tough because a lot of people see us right now and they see you lose two games and then they go crazy, he said. And thats understandable. Its what yall are supposed to do, but dont place that on me. We good. Were 3-3. To me, thats still good in the league. Its not like were 0-6 or 1-5 or something. We battled. We came out the second quarter (of the season) and didnt start off right, didnt get the job done. But I think were going to be fine. Nothing about Jacksonvilles direction will truly be known until Sunday afternoon, after three camp-like practices in sweltering, 90-degree heat. Marrones team meeting Wednesday highlighted all the possible directions and included anecdotes from his past at the college level and in the three previous NFL stops. Is it something that we need to hear? safety Tashaun Gipson said. I think that was already understood. I would hope that we have the guys in here to understand that coach didnt need to come in there and say that because we should have enough mature guys in this locker room to understand that weve got to get this thing right. ... You can do whatever you need to do on Wednesday and Thursday and Friday, but if you come out on Sunday and play like we did the last two weeks, specifically defensively, it doesnt matter what we do on Wednesday and Thursday and Friday, it doesnt matter what Coach Marrone says, weve got to go out there and play the game.JOHN SLEEZER/Kansas City StarKansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill catches a first down pass in front of Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey on Oct. 7 at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo. I make sure that all the guys know the plays, defensive coordinator Felix Woods said. So when your number is called, you can go in and make a play. Pressure continues to be applied during the Tigers tough practices, with no starter seemingly safe. The most changes have come in the secondary. Mike Scippio and Shyheim Brown have earned the starting cornerback spots with impressive play so far, pushing projected starters Devin and Derek Johnson for playing time. Columbia safety Brandon Scott, who recently returned from an ankle injury, has also brought some much-needed depth to the defensive backfield. Noah Ruise along with Scott provide extra options behind Sirr Talbott and Ahmad Williams. Im focused on guys learning all the plays and all the positions, Woods added. You never know. I got safeties playing outside linebacker. I got corners playing safety, so you never know. You can get called on any day, any snap.If you go back and look, weve had a new starting eleven every week. Weve been in the season seven weeks and have had a new starting eleven every week. As the end of the regular season nears, Columbia continues to try improve each week, constantly evaluating starters and nonstarters, which in return the Tigers hope will put the best product on the field. The healthy competition during practice so far has worked as Columbia looks to cruise into the playoffs for an eighth straight year. Anytime you have a team with depth, youre usually going to have a good football team, Allen said. When you have a good, solid foundation of [starters] and twos are on beat, youre going to have a good football team. Just because youre going to be able to keep guys fresh, not rested. Its very important on the defensive line that youre able to rotate guys so theyre giving you 100 percent effort. Its the same way in the secondary keeping guys fresh. I think its key to longevity in a season. OFFERS ON OFFERS: Columbia wide receiver TJ Jones received an college offer from Indiana University this week. The fourstar prospect now is up to 38 offers, including Florida, Miami, North Carolina and Texas A&M. INJURY BUG: Columbia linebacker Marlon Pollock is expected to play in Fridays game against Fletcher despite a knee bruise suffered last week. Defensive lineman Daylon Lumpkin (foot) remains out but is expected to return in 1-2 weeks. STATE POLL: Columbia remains No. 2 in Class 7A behind No. 1 St. Thomas Aquinas in the AP high school state football poll released Tuesday. Robert E. Lee stands at No. 10 while Lakeland is No. 3 in Class 7A. POINT STANDINGS: The FHSAA released its latest playoff point standings earlier this week. Columbia remains at the top of region with an average of 44.71. Behind the Tigers for the final seven spots are Robert E. Lee (41.00), Buchholz (40.71), Lincoln (39.00, clinched district), Oakleaf (39.29), Edgewater (39.14), First Coast (37.43) and Fletcher (37.29).
