TT hanks for r eading.ed District 10 incumbent Eugene Jefferson, for alleged absentee ballot fraud. Investigators have reached out to absentee voters throughout the district to determine whether Betty Jefferson improperly obtained mail-in ballots, said Third Circuit State Attorney Jeff Siegmeister. Were still investigating, Siegmeister said. In the next couple of weeks, were hoping to be able to present it to a grand jury. The 21-person grand jury will review the evidence and make the ultimate decision whether to indict Betty Jefferson, which would require 12 jurors. The State Attorneys Office launched the probe following a formal complaint filed by District 10 voter Gladnell Jackson, whose great nephew, Sylvester Warren, is in a relationship with defeated District 10 challenger Vanessa George. Jackson alleges she was walking to her house when Betty Jefferson approached and later presented her with an absentee ballot to sign. Jackson says she saw her own name printed on the absentee ballot, even though she has never requested one. Betty Jefferson pressured her to vote for Eugene Jefferson, Jackson alleges. Records from the Columbia County Supervisor of Elections confirm that Jackson has always cast a ballot at a polling place. An absentee ballot was requested on her behalf this year by a state-registered third party identified as Betty Jefferson. Compared to races in other city and county elections, the ratio of absen tee ballots to polling-place votes was unusually high, Siegmeister said in September. Jefferson won with 360 votes to Georges 339. The incumbents victory came through 249 mail-in votes, 70 early votes and 41 election-day votes. George had 98 mail-in votes, 121 early votes and 120 election-day votes. Betty Jefferson previously faced fraud allegations for her role in her husbands 2010 re-election campaign. In 2013, prosecutors filed charges against her for 29 crimes related to election fraud, including 19 felony counts of illegally obtaining absentee ballots. Another woman, Linda Ivery, was implicated. Adjudication of guilt was withheld, but Jefferson agreed to write apology letters to her victims as part of a plea deal. Eugene Jefferson denies any wrongdoing by his wife both in that case and the current one, he told the Lake City Reporter in September. ELECTIONContinued From 1A E. Jeerson On May 16, Shira was found dead in the cell he shared with Craft at the prisons annex, the report states. Emergency medical responders arrived at the prison and pronounced Shira dead at the scene around 7:02 p.m. An FDLE agent examined the scene, finding Shira lying on his back on the bunk farthest from the cell door. Shiras shirt was pulled up and medical equipment was attached to his chest. Blood covered his face, and his left eye was closed due to bruises and swelling. The sheet underneath Shira was also bloody. A pair of blue prison-issued pants was found in Crafts bunk, missing a white strip of material sewn down the side of the leg. The body was sent to the Jacksonville Medical Examiners Office. Security personnel took Craft into custody. Craft told security staff he killed Shira, FDLE reported. He said if he is housed again with a child molester that he will kill them as well, the report reads. He said that he has killed one he might as well keep going and that he now has a blood lust. Craft and Shira were assigned to the same cell two days prior. Shira admitted to being a child molester, and started to cry while sharing his story, Craft told investigators. Shira said he realized he was gay while serving in the U.S. Navy and later pursued a career in law enforcement, Craft told investigators. Craft said he planned the murder for three days, and originally intended to sexually assault Shira to throw it over the edge, but couldnt bring himself to go through with that part. When asked why it took several days to plan the attack, Craft said he wanted to write his sister a letter and tell her he was going to catch a body, the report states. Investigators spoke to Crafts sister in June, learning that she is actually his aunt. Craft said he wanted to kill Shira in the morning so he would still have a chance to eat chicken and biscuits for breakfast, but decided to do it the night before because he saw an opportunity, according to the report. After the two finished eating dinner, Craft said he told Shira people who commit crimes against children should not be allowed to live. Shira responded that his cellmate should not judge him, which was Gods job, the report reads. Craft said he choked Shira out with his hands for about four minutes before tying a piece of cloth around his neck. Inmate Craft said that crushing the throat is harder to do than in the movies, the report reads. At one point, Craft said he stomped on Shiras throat. He then put a wet cloth on Shiras face and lifted him onto the bunk, beating him throughout the encounter. Shira kept twitching, Craft told investigators, and he continued to beat him. Inmate Craft said it was the first time that he had killed someone by hand and it was a powerful experience, the report reads. Craft said he intentionally tortured Shira, the report states. Inmate Craft said it was due to inmate Shira hurting a kid and that is why he needed to suffer, according to the report. Craft questioned why Shira, who was in confinement because he requested protection, would be housed with someone like him, who was placed there for stomping another inmate on the head. Craft also wrote that this was his second murder and he was never caught for the first out of Polk County. Craft asked FDLE if he would be charged with a hate crime because he killed Shira for being gay, as well as being a child molester, saying he had heard Navy servicemen sailed the seas and raped and pillaged women and children. The Third Circuit State Attorneys Office received multiple letters from Craft, who wrote in one he hates Jewish people and child molesters, and the man he killed was both. I had no choice but to kill him, Craft wrote. Craft is now serving time at Florida State Prison in Bradford County. Florida Department of Corrections records show Craft was convicted of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, aggravated assault with a weapon with no intent to kill, false imprisonment and felony battery. Shira was convicted on multiple counts related to armed burglary, records show. He had been scheduled for release in 2030. DEATHContinued From 1A Group helps homeless womenBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA local high school group spent most of Saturday morning trying to make a difference in the lives of homeless women by giving them purses filled with personal care items. The community project was done through the Young Women of Excellence program. Young Women of Excellence is a mentorship program, under the Greater Lake City Community Development Corporation, that is composed of women from Columbia High School in ninth through 12th grades. Over the weekend, the Young Women of Excellence program held the organizations Filling The Purse for Homeless Females and Young Ladies purse giveaway. For the past few months the organization has collected more than 100 purses and pocketbooks and filled them with personal hygiene items for homeless women. The drive started in August and today were setting up at command posts to hand the bags out to individuals that come to get them, Mary Ann McKellum, Young Women of Excellence coordinator, said Saturday. The group distributed the bags at four locations around town Saturday. The project lasted from 8:45 a.m. until noon. Hopefully these items will be a blessing to them until they transition into housing, McKellum said.

A photo of the celebratory fist-bump the 12-year-olds performed on stage when they found out they won first place in the National FFA Agriscience Fair division appeared briefly on screen behind Trump. They made a meme about us, said Trey. It said, when your haircuts fresh and you just won your agriscience division. The National FFA Twitter account tweeted the clip with the caption on Friday. It felt pretty great, said Trace. Neither Trace nor Trey could be there in person to see the president speak, though. They were at the Columbia County Fair preparing their dairy cows after driving all night home from Indianapolis for the judging. They actually got their award on Friday then they drove all through the night to get back here, said Amber Taylor, Traces mother. They both showed dairy heifers at the fair on Saturday. Their year-and-a-half long research study centered on reducing fertilizer use and water requirements through the application of a product called Inocucor Garden Solution. The main drive behind our project was to cut down on fertilizers, but this basically has the same result as fertilizers but without using as many, Trace said. Trey added, It could be as good or better. Donovan Preedom, 17, placed fourth in the competition for his study of four hydroponic methods to grow crops. Donovan said his targets were low socio-economic areas and food deserts. He said his research is already helping those in developing countries with food shortages and few resources. One of his aims in the project is to develop a hydroponic hybrid of the systems he has studied, though at a fraction of the cost. I have a hybrid system that I am actually making that is three times cheaper, Donovan said. I wanted to make it cheaper than $750 dollars. He said hes cut costs and has a target of less than $150 per system. Now Donovan said hes on the hunt for a patent, which is a driving force behind his college pick and career choice. Donovan, Trey and Trace plan to combine their projects. They want to study the effects of applying the subject of their first-place winning study to Donovans hydroponic system research and further reduce the resources needed to grow produce. Agriculture teacher and FFA advisor Wayne Oelfke said the students were making good use of what theyve learned in FFA. These are going to be the leaders of tomorrow that solve that sustainability problem, Oelfke said.

President Donald Trump has announced his first potentially strong action against Americas inordinate prescription drug prices the first that could meaningfully lower Medicare drug spending. The idea is to narrow the gap between U.S. prices and those of other countries. The plan is far from finished, and pushback from the pharmaceutical industry will be fierce. But to drive U.S. drug prices down, a move of this kind is going to be needed. The strategy concentrates on drugs administered by doctors mainly the newer, very expensive biologic drugs that treat cancer and chronic conditions such as arthritis and macular degeneration. Medicares prices for these drugs are nearly double the average paid in Europe, Japan and Canada. To close the gap, the Trump administration would benchmark Medicare payments to the average foreign price. Trump blames Americas higher prices on freeloading foreign countries. For decades other countries have rigged the system so that American patients are charged much more and in some cases much, much more for the exact same drug, he said in announcing the plan on Thursday. Hes right except that its the U.S. that has done the rigging, by arranging things so that the anomaly of high U.S. prices can continue. Under the system hes proposing, you wouldnt expect U.S. prices to fall all the way to where foreign prices now stand. As producers adjusted to the rules, foreign prices would presumably rise. And theyd need to, if global profit margins and R&D budgets were to be maintained. The outcome isnt certain: Other countries are adept at driving hard bargains, and they typically provide shorter patent protection than the U.S. allows, so competition from generics and biosimilars would continue to press down on their prices. Nonetheless, Trumps plan would let Medicare co-opt some of those advantages in effect, clawing back a subsidy paid to foreign buyers at considerable savings for the U.S. If Medicare had benchmarked its prices for 27 top doctor-administered drugs in 2016 (and foreign prices had stayed the same), the Department of Health and Human Services estimates it would have saved $8.1 billion. The proposal would also end Medicares policy of paying a 6 percent premium to doctors for administering drugs, an absurd convention that encourages them to choose the most expensive treatment. The premium would be changed to a flat fee. Thats another good idea and again, the companies will push back. (A similar effort by the Obama administration failed in 2016.) Bear in mind, the plan isnt yet fully worked out. Its being advertised early, no doubt, to strengthen the Republican position on health care before the midterm elections. As it stands, the plan is for a pilot project covering half the country, to be phased in over five years. Even if it happens, drug prices at the pharmacy counter will stay high as long as the U.S. maintains its strong patent system and refuses to give Medicare the power to negotiate. All that said, Trumps plan is a refreshing change: an idea for lowering drug prices that might actually work. OPINION My sister-in-law is also a good friend. Shes a very active, involved, and productive person, and just happens to need a wheelchair for most of her activities to get around. Last year Jeanne visited a local pirate festival on the historic coast of Virginia. She came upon a happy crowd of fun, high spirited people aboard an old ship in the harbor. One of them noticed Jeanne in her wheelchair, where she patiently smiled and waited to get through the crowd to board that ship. In that festive holiday he shouted out, Aargh! Ahoy, mates! Make a hole! Jeanne, and a bunch of the celebrators, quickly opened a welcoming, friendly path. Jeanne enjoyed a good laugh with the fun crowd. It was awesome the way she was welcomed and appreciated, as she joined them and participated in the merry events. Thats Jeanne! Ive known her for a lot of years, always find her sense of humor and game spirit a breath of fresh air. Jeanne has faced years of enduring MS, gradually declining physical abilities, and trips to emergency rooms. But as she lives her life she shows a strength and a positive outlook on life. For years, Jeanne continues being an active regionally recognized artist. She has a unique painting style; she uses lots of non-objective patterns, and wonderful bright colors. She paints on canvas, or wood, and on a wide range of articles, from little objects to large furniture like tables and chairs. Shes always unique and very creative. She participates in art shows and local festivals, running her own booth. Her MS is causing a numbing and a lack of dexterity of her hands, a real challenge for her painting. But that doesnt stop her. She has other activities in her life that she devotes time to. She is cause-oriented and politically active, and pursues social justice, equality, and good will for all. She has hosted political rallies and campaigns in her own home. What was she doing today when I called her? Serving on the Board of Elections for Louisa County in Virginia. Today she is testing voting machines, and preparing for the upcoming mid-term elections. Jeanne seems to face her problems and challenges as opportunities to learn and grow from, to develop her character, and find ways to use what she has to make her own life meaningful and productive. More than anything, I believe she uses what she is, and what she has, to make a difference, and to make the world a little better because shes here. And she does it with humor, friendship, and hard work, not complaints. In a major presidential election, when I have trouble deciding, I call Jeanne. And Jeannes church is one of those rare ones where you can have open discussions about religious beliefs without being judged, without facing a refusal to consider controversial issues. When I find myself struggling with ideas or problems like political choices, religious or philosophical questions, or occasional life problems or conflicts that I face, Jeanne is one of my best go-to people for a little wisdom and good judgment. Shes one person I call and have a really good discussion with, that wont turn into an argument or a rejection to a free debate. Jeanne will see both sides of an issue, and she can reserve judgment while she listens to others opinions. More and more, Im convinced that life continually throws obstacles in our path that we can see as challenges and opportunities to learn and grow from, and to use to become the best we can be. During our lives, we can all develop wisdom, character, and a respect, empathy, and appreciation for others, as well as for their beliefs and ideas. Each and every one of us has something we can offer to make the world a little better because were here. Find yours! Develop your talents, abilities, knowledge, and skills, and make the most of what youve got to work with. Make the world a little better because youre here like Jeanne does!

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman ANOTHER VIEW Low-cost schools have high valueKids in the low-cost Sun Belt are not suffering academically because of low spending. Floridas K-12 public schools are among the best in the nation. Find that surprising? Well, if so, you might be mired in the misguided way we have been taught to think about education progress, according to Stan Liebowitz, an economics professor at the University of Texas at Dallas, and Matthew Kelly, a UTD research fellow. They have authored a new report analyzing education data, which is featured in the November issue of the libertarian magazine Reason, and their study should cause us to rethink what we think of our schools and our states education policies. Liebowitz and Kelly looked at the best known graders of state education systems and how they have led the public to believe the highest-quality state educational systems tend to be in big-spending states in the Northeast or Upper Midwest. The narrative, they write, then becomes: These places apparently honor and respect teachers, while Southern states inexplicably abhor them. But the cheapskates in cheap states get their just desserts: Sophisticated northern jurisdictions grow ever smarter, while stingy conservative backwaters sink into ever-lower depths of ignorance. The solution is obvious: Pay up or your kids will suffer. Well, to Liebowitz and Kelly, the obvious is really not all that obvious. Children in the low-cost Sun Belt are not suffering academically because of low spending. Liebowitz and Kelly fault the grading methodology: lumping test scores in with metrics that distract from true student performance, such as education spending, graduation rates and pre-K enrollment, which have little to do with what actually occurs in the classroom. So, Liebowitz and Kelly stripped away the clutter and zeroed in on true measures of student progress: results of standardized tests for math, reading and science taken by fourthand eighth-graders under the National Assessment of Education Progress, commonly known as The Nations Report Card. Furthermore, unlike the graders, they sifted the test data demographically so they could compare, for example, how black students in Florida scored on the NAEP relative to black students in Minnesota. The demographic component is critical because the ranking lobby favors predominantly white states that spend big, yet dont face the challenge of educating a large pool of students with varying ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds, as found in Florida, Texas, Arizona and California. Liebowitz and Kelly suggest predominantly white states skew traditional rankings because white students tend to do better on standardized tests. Thus, as they wrote in their actual study, conventional state rankings simply become little more than a proxy for a jurisdictions demography.

Neighbors said the driver of a truck fired a gun and turned into a nearby driveway. No name, age or gender was reported for the victim, who was identified only by species and markings. Brandon Jeremy Gaylord, 19, was arrested on charges of animal cruelty and discharging a firearm in public after deputies say he shot at pigs in a fencedin area on a neighbors property. Around 3:40 p.m. Saturday, CCSO responded to the neighborhood and spoke to Gaylord and others in his household. Gaylord said he was driving a Toyota truck and stopped along the fence on Iris Court, got out of the vehicle and fired two rounds at a black and white pig, according to the report. A deputy retrieved the gun, a 9mm Smith and Wesson loaded with four rounds of ammunition. Gaylord said the owner of the pigs told him to shoot and eat them if he ever saw them, but deputies determined the owner only said to shoot them if they got loose and went onto their property, the report states. The owner told CCSO he wanted to pursue charges. Photos of the scene were taken and submitted into evidence. The bullet struck the pig toward the rear of its body, according to the report. The pig was not yet dead when deputies examined it, but was too injured to stand up fully, the report states. Gaylord was arrested and taken without incident to Columbia County Detention Facility. Gaylord On November 16 the United Way of Suwannee Valley will hold its November report luncheon at the Nutrien Conference Center 16071 SE 78th Place, White Springs.

Take a deep breath and rewatch Days of Thunder a couple hundred times to put some perspective on Joey Loganos latest dustup with another driver. Logano sparked a storm of controversy at Martinsville Speedway when he bumped reigning series champion Martin Truex Jr. out of the lead to claim victory. It wasnt any old win, either; it qualified Logano for NASCARs championship-deciding race at the end of the season. At this stage of the season, a victory is the golden ticket to Homestead-Miami Speedways winner-take-all finale. It is really that simple. There are eight drivers vying for four spots and one was dangling in front of Truex and Logano on Sunday. First things first: Logano maybe wasnt expected to make the final four, not this season. His only other win was at Talladega Superspeedway and Team Penske has been overshadowed on the track by Ford partner Stewart-Haas Racing. The regular season was so dominated by Truex, Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick it has just been assumed the so-called Big 3 would gobble up three of the four championship berths. So for Logano to make it to the finale, he needed to be perfect for three races or in position to win one. There he was at Martinsville, out front for a race-high 309 of the 500 laps, raced extraordinarily hard in the final stretch because Penske teammate Brad Keselowski was glued to his bumper. He had a door-todoor battle going with Truex for much of the final 10 laps. The racing was clean and Truex was an on-track gentleman, a sportsman worthy to be called champion, in taking the lead from Logano. But Logano had to have that win. It was his best and perhaps only chance to qualify for the finale, and that chance came on the final lap. He pulled a bump-and-run and figured hed let the chips fall as they may. The move worked and Logano punched his ticket to Miami. An infuriated Truex must try again this weekend to return to the finale. The bump was a throwback move to when drivers used their race cars as muscle, and they created racing that captivated its audience. It was the jaw-dropping, white-knuckled bumping and banging that made Days of Thunder a pop culture sensation and created an unrealistic expectation of NASCAR racing. But its quintessential NASCAR, not all that different from what Logano did to Matt Kenseth to win a playoff race at Kansas three years ago. In this latest instance, Logano knocked Truex out of the way, slipped past him and straightened out his wiggling car enough to cross the finish line in first. Truexs car went sideways and Denny Hamlin stole COLLEGE FOOTBALLLogano put it all on the line, as he should haveDriver shoved past Truex Sunday, now eyes shot at title.PITS continued on 5BTHEY SAID YESFlorida St. suspends 2 players for first half vs NC StateBy RONALD BLUMAssociated PressLOS ANGELES Chris Sales final pitch for this Boston juggernaut triggered a celebration on the Dodger Stadium infield, among thousands of fans who made their way to California and even outside Fenway Park back home.

The FHSAA Board of Directors approved a new classification system for seven sports in the state of Florida on Monday. By JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comFlorida high school athletics will undergo drastic changes starting next fall. The Florida High School Athletic Associations Board of Directors approved Â a new classification sys tem by a 12-3 vote on Monday for seven sports boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, baseball, softball and volleyball. The plan takes effect for the 2019-2020 school year and lowers the numbers of classes from nine to seven except for soccer, which is rising from five to six, while using MaxPreps rankings for playoff seeding. Teams will also no longer be required to play district games during the regular season. Seeding for district tournaments will instead be determined by MaxPreps, which will also select at-large bids for the regionals playoffs. District champions will still qualify for the playoffs along with four at-large teams, adding up to eight in each region. District runners-up will no longer automatically advance on to the postseason, a big change from the states previous structure. The goal? Eliminate bad teams from bad districts from making the playoffs, much like the state has with football. This puts the onus on winning, Columbia baseball coach Brian Thomas said. If youre a runner-up you didnt win. Yeah you got (to the district championship) but your season ended on a loss as well just like the other four or five teams in your district. Go to wild card. Ive got no problem with that. I think its going to make us coach a little bit harder and I think its going to make the kids play a little bit harder because there is no guarantee unless you win (the district). Theres no guarantee youre getting an opportunity to go play for a ring so the onus goes back to the coaches a little bit to prep and push and grind and likewise for the kids. Enrollment will be used to determine classifications as it has in the past. The FHSAA had considered months ago ditching the criteria and using MaxPreps rankings to FHSAA continued on 6BFHSAA approves new classification proposal. RED SOX continued on 5B B2

This meet qualified her to lift at the Junior National level and compete in either Las Vegas or Illinois in the spring. BEREA, OhioBrowns fire Jackson, owner cites internal discordBrowns owner Jimmy Haslam finally tried the patient approach with his head coach. That didnt work either. Haslam made his fourth coaching change since 2012 by firing Hue Jackson, who won just three of 40 games over two-plus seasons and then lost his job because of a feud with offensive coordinator Todd Haley that went public and threatened to turn a promising season into another one of those Cleveland catastrophes. Haslam fired Jackson and Haley within hours of each other on Monday, a day after the Browns (2-5-1) lost their 25th consecutive road game one shy of the NFL record. Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams is Clevelands interim coach, and running backs coach Freddie Kitchens will take over for Haley. Hopefully, we made a big step today, Haslam said. It is hard to win in the NFL. If anybody knows that, it is us. I think the message today is we are not going to put up with internal discord. We want peo ple who are collaborative and work together.TAMPAFitzpatrick in, Winston out as Buccs starting QBJameis Winstons inability to cut down on turnovers has cost him his starting job with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Without speculating on what the move means for the young quarterbacks future with the team, coach Dirk Koetter said veteran backup Ryan Fitzpatrick will lead the NFLs No. 1 ranked offense against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. Winston, 24, was benched after throwing four intercep tions during last Sundays 37-34 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Were going to start Fitz at quarterback this week. Thats what we feel we need to do this week to give ourselves the best chance, Koetter said, adding Mondays decision to turn to the 35-year-old Fitzpatrick is just for right now. Winston, who entered the NFL as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 draft, has 11 turnovers 10 interceptions and one fumble in 3 games since returning from serving a suspension for violating the leagues personal conduct policy.BOSTONRed Sox to hold title parade on WednesdayBoston will hold a parade Wednesday to honor the Red Sox for their World Series win, with the players riding in duck boats. Mayor Marty Walsh made the announcement Monday. Hours earlier, jubilant fans spilled into the streets after watching their team wrap up its fourth World Series title in 15 years with a 5-1 win over the Dodgers in Los Angeles. Boston police say the crowd was largely well-behaved. One person was arrested for destroying property. Police closed off several streets around Fenway Park. A World Series championship banner was unfurled outside it just before dawn. Wednesdays parade will mark the citys 11th such sports championship since 2002, with the New England Patriots winning five and the Boston Celtics and Boston Bruins each winning once during that period. The amphibious duck boats are a popular attraction in Boston and have been regulars in the citys recent sports championship parades.

LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER ADVICE & COMICS TUESDAY, O ctoCT O B erER 30, 2018 3B DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married for 20 years. Weve had our ups and downs, but always man aged to work our way through th em. Last year, he decided he no longer wanted to be mar ried, saying the last 20 years w ere not all that pleasant and we have never really got ten along. (As far as I know, th ere isnt another woman.) My problem is, for the most part, he still acts like he wants to be married. He has made no attempt to leave, tells me his comings and goings, asks me to have din ner together, etc. However, he s leeps on the couch and theres no sex. He says he does this because he hopes we can stay friends after the divorce. I have yet to be served with divorce papers, so Im thinking it may be a midlife crisis. Am I misreading his signals and hell snap out of it, or am I being strung along? ANONYMOUS IN THE USA DEAR ANONYMOUS: You are confused because your husband is sending you mixed messages. Could he be having performance issues? Do you still love him? I ask because nowhere in your letter did you mention it. The two of you are overdue for an honest discussion about whether your marriage is salvageable. If it isnt, ask him when and if he plans to file for the divorce, because this situation has left you in limbo, which is unfair to you. Then consult an attorney to ensure you get a fair shake. DEAR ABBY: I am a young adult who suffers from migraines, which make it difficult to have much of a social life. My family and close friends know about them and are supportive and understanding. However, Im a private person and dont like talking about it with new people. Its hard to make friends and go on dates when I know I might have to flake out at the last minute due to a migraine. Whats a good way to gracefully bow out of plans without seeming like a flake? Or should I just tell new peo ple about my migraines? HURTIN G IN NEW YORK DEAR HURTING: Suffering from migraines is nothing to be ashamed of. More than 12 percent of people in the U.S. share your problem. While I dont think its necessary to make an announcement about it when you meet someone, I do think you should tell the truth if you must cancel an engagement. DEAR ABBY: I am the youngest of four children. Every Sunday, our family gets together for Sunday dinner, a tradition I have loved since I was a kid, although lately, I have grown less fond of Sundays. Here is why: I am now 30 and the tallest sibling in my family, yet I am made to feel as though I am the smallest. No one listens to me; no one asks my advice. I could be at the table with my finger up my nose and I dont think anyone would even notice. I say things and no one acknowledges me. Sometimes I feel as though I dont even exist. Its as if because Im the youngest, I have no importance. What can I do to change this? PATIENCE RUNNING THIN DEAR PATIENCE: Allow me to suggest that at the next Sunday dinner you speak up loud and clear and say exactly that. And if nothing changes, make other plans for Sunday.

FRANK & ERNEST FOR BETTER OR WORSE ZITS HAGAR THE HORRIBLE SNUFFY SMITH GARFIELD CLASSIC PEANUTS DEAR ABBY HOROSCOPES | THE LAST WORD BB Y EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Sign up for something that will inspire you to use your intelligence, experience and love of life to benefit yourself and others. Put your beliefs first and share with those who are traveling down a similar path. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): It's up to you to bring about change. Don't wait for someone else to take over. A change will do you good, and travel is encouraged. What you learn will have an impact on the way you move forward. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Live and learn.

Set your goals and stick to your plan. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Less talk and more action will help you come to terms with what's happening in your life and the best way for you to handle what's going on to your advantage. Look out for No. 1 and project a positive image. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Visit someone who inspires you to learn more and to engage in conversations that will help you figure out what's best for you.

Don't make a personal change without going over how much it will cost and seeing if it's worth your while. Temptation will lead to trouble. Set your priorities straight.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): An emotional matter will lead you astray if you don't double-check the information someone is giving you. Concentrate more on your per sonal growth and the physical changes that will make you feel good. Invest in yourself, not someone else. Songwriter Eddie Holland is 79. Singer Grace Slick.

Truex vowed to prevent Logano from stealing his crown: He may have won the battle, but he aint winning the damn war. Logano car owner Roger Penske wasnt pleased to learn Truex called the bump-and-run a cheap shot and he was unusually feisty in his rebuttal. Hes a racer and should know better than to say that, Penske said. Thats as clean a shot as you can have in a race like this. We want to go to Miami. Joey ran a great race. As far as Im concerned, thats just a comment that I dont think we deserve. Well race him day after day. Everything was on the line for Logano and hed have been lambasted for not trying something anything, really to try to win. The second-guessing if hed tried nothing would have lasted the entire third round of the playoffs or until he won a race. If Logano wasnt going to put it all on the line, then whats the point of even getting into the race car each week? If more drivers raced the way Logano did on that lap, people might start watching again. PITS Continued From 1B dispatching the 100-win New York Yankees and the 103-victory and defending champion Houston Astros in the playoffs. Cora, a player on Bostons 2007 champions, became the first manager from Puerto Rico to win a title and just the fifth rookie skipper overall. I dont know where we stand in history and all that, said Dave Dombrowski, the clubs president of baseball operations. If somebody would say youre going to win 119 games and lose 57, wed never, ever fathom that. Pearce hit a two-run homer on Clayton Kershaws sixth pitch. Solo homers by Mookie Betts in the sixth inning and J.D. Martinez in the seventh quieted the Los Angeles crowd. Pearce added a solo drive off Pedro Baez in the eighth, then was selected the Series MVP after the game. Best feeling in my life, Pearce said. Acquired in June from Toronto, Pearce had three homers and seven RBIs in the final 11 innings of the Series. Thousands of Boston fans remained on the firstbase side of the stadium long after the final out, chanting Lets go Red Sox! and singing Sweet Caroline. Of course, they let loose a few choice words about the rival Yankees, too. I never knew there were so many Red Sox fans here, Martinez said. Players families, many dressed in red, congregated on the field to join the celebration, some holding babies, some watching children run across the outfield in glee. This is the greatest Red Sox team in history, owner John Henry proclaimed after receiving the Series trophy. After losing to Houston in Game 7 last year by the same 5-1 score, the Dodgers became the first team ousted on its home field in consecutive World Series since the New York Giants by the New York Yankees at the Polo Grounds in 1936 and Los Angeles remains without a championship since 1988. Ran up against a very good ballclub and just a little bit too much for us, said manager Dave Roberts, who played for Bostons 2004 champions. Boston outscored the Dodgers 28-16 and had only a slightly better batting average at .222 to .180. But the Red Sox got timely hitting and won their ninth title, tying the Athletics for thirdmost behind the Yankees (27) and Cardinals (11). All that stood between the Red Sox and a sweep was an 18-inning loss in Game 3, the longest World Series game ever. They trailed 4-0 in the seventh inning of Game 4 when Sale rose from the dugout bench for a fiery, profane, motivational rant, and his teammates woke up in time to rally for a 9-6 win. Boston never trailed in Game 5. I didnt say anything that anyone didnt know, Sale explained. Just rallying the troops and letting them know were the best team on the planet, and to start playing like it. The 33-year-old Price, a Cy Young Award winner in 2012, long pitched under an October shadow cast by his regular-season success. He had been 0-9 in 11 postseason starts before defeating Astros ace Justin Verlander in the clinching Game 5 of the AL Championship Series. The left-hander won his third straight start Sunday and became the first pitcher to beat Cy Young winners in the finale of an LCS and the World Series in the same year. Ive been through a lot in three years since I came here, but this is why I came, said Price, who like Kershaw can opt out of his lucrative contract in the coming days and become a free agent. After allowing two runs over six innings to win Game 2 last Wednesday, Price got two outs in the ninth inning of Fridays marathon game. He became the first to pitch into the eighth inning of a Series game on one day of rest since the Yankees Bob Turley in 1957. All the haters, its time to be quiet and show the guy some respect, Martinez said.WALLY SKALIJ/Los Angeles Times/TNSBoston Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello, left, and catcher Christian Vasquez hug after winning the championship against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 5 of the World Series Sunday at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, Calif.

6B TU ESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER ing one to running back Leonard Fournette. And, inconsistent play from quarterback Blake Bortles including a brief benching on Oct. 21 in a loss to the Houston Texans has not helped. Jacksonvilles biggest strength last season, though, was its defense, and the unit remains statistically strong, entering the defeat on Sunday ranked second in the league after allowing just 301.6 yards per game. Although Marrone said he believes he can turn the team around, he does need to find a way to get the players to buy in as they did last season. Really, it takes everybody, he said. You can point everyone in the right direction, get everyone together, and if everyone is pulling in that direction and doing what theyre supposed to do, doing their job, then yeah, you turn it around. But if you dont, then you sit back and make excuses and point fingers or get out of your role or things of that nature, then you cant, and thats my job to pull everyone on the same thing. Obviously, I havent been doing that well for the last four games. Bortles, asked about Marrones introspection, said the losing streak is more on the players than the coaches. We expect to do the same things (as last season), Bortles said. We expect to win every time we step on the field and it hasnt happened. Thats on us as players to continue to try to go out there and make plays. Weve got to execute. Heres what else we learned in the Jaguars-Eagles game:A FRESH FACEEagles running back Josh Adams, an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame, had team and career highs of nine carries for 61 yards 44 of which were gained after halftime. He had a 21-yard carry on second-and-6 early in the third quarter and a 17-yard carry early in the fourth quarter. My hope going into it was to take advantage of every opportunity that I got and try to bring it to them, Adams said. You never know what can happen when youre out there, so try to take advantage of that time. Adams most obvious blemish was an apparent fumble with 6:52 remaining, though officials ruled he was down before letting go of the ball after a video review. We just felt comfortable with Josh, Eagles coach Doug Pederson said. (Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement) play a lot of special teams, (so it was) keeping everybody fresh and rotated.HYDE AND SEEKCarlos Hyde made his debut for the Jaguars after a trade from the Cleveland Browns, and he finished with just 11 yards on six carries. T.J. Yeldon had season lows of two carries and seven yards, but he did catch seven passes for 83 yards. The Jaguars have yet to have anyone run for more than 58 yards in a game this season, and their leading rusher in the loss to the Eagles was Bortles, who gained 43 yards on eight carries. I think that starts a lot with how we do in practice and what we do (in terms of) getting some continuity there, Marrone said. Right now, were not doing anything well, so its time to go back, hopefully get some guys back that have been injured and take it from there. Fournette, who ran for 1,040 yards and nine touchdowns last season as a rookie, has played just twice, and not since Sept. 30, because of a hamstring injury. I thought the guys did a good job up front, Bortles said. Obviously, we got down, so youre going to throw it a little more there ... but I thought what we were doing was fine. Weve just got to make plays.TACKLE TROUBLE?Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson left the game after he injured his left knee on the opening possession and was replaced by Halapoulivaati Vaitai, who made 10 starts last season. Johnson was trying to make a tackle on Jaguars weakside linebacker Telvin Smith after he intercepted Carson Wentz and needed assistance to come off the field. Pederson said he had not spoken to the Eagles medical staff about Johnson, who has been playing through a sprained ankle for the past month. MARRONE Continued From 1Bclassify teams but that was shelved during the process. It makes a heck of a lot more sense to me than the previous option. I like it, Columbia athletic director/ boys basketball coach Steve Faulkner said. The one thing that still bothers me and I know bothers other coaches is the MaxPreps thing, not so much that Im against MaxPreps but I want to know whats more important for rankings, strength of schedule or wins. I still feel like were kind of going in blind as far as how to do our schedule moving forward. The previous proposal back in the summer also included eliminating districts and but it failed to gather much support from the athletic directors committee in September. Coaches wanted their kids to have an incentive during the regular season and they got their wish on Monday. This system is good because it still keeps districts around, Faulkner said. Theres still some importance to the district tournament. If you win it youre in. And then you dont automatically get the runner-up from a bad district. Now it could be a district thats loaded thats got three really good teams and now they all have a chance to get in, which I think will make the playoffs better. Classes 2-7A will still be divided into four regions, with each region still divided into four districts. A new wrinkle in the proposal from the past is that each district will have an equal number of teams. Class 1A will remain solely for the rural schools. That could affect Fort White, which recently applied to drop from 5A to 1A due to its school numbers dropping under 600. The current playoff structure will remain the same for 1A. The new classification plan will last for two years and will be released likely after the new year. Its going to be interesting, Fort White athletic director John Wilson said.YUONG KIM/Philadelphia Inquirer/TNSPhiladelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz runs for a second quarter first down past Jacksonville Jaguars free safety Tashaun Gipson (left) and linebacker Blair Brown on Sunday at Wembley Stadium in London, England.
