Thanks for reading.Foundation for the future Photos by TONY BRITT/Lake City RR eport erThe late Billy RR ay F oister, a former Foundation for FGC board member, was honored during the foundations annual luncheon Tuesday at HH o ward Gymnasium. HH is family members acc epted the posthumous award. Pictured with the award are: DD r ew HH ingson (from lef t), Ellie HH ingson, Ow en Beatty, Maegan Beatty, AA ngie F oister HH ingson, AA llyson F oister Beatty, Jill AA dams, Taylor Beatty and Lee Pinchouk.By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comMore than 200 people assembled at the Howard Gymnasium on the campus of Florida Gateway College on Wednesday for the 14th Annual Foundation Donor Celebration Luncheon, where donors were honored for their contributions. The Foundation for Florida Gateway College provides scholarships to several students attending FGC. Last year the foundation provided 590 scholarships worth a total of $590,000, as well as $390,357 in program support. During the program several speakers, including athletes, former graduates, students, faculty and former faculty, spoke about how the foundation has helped students get an education. Lee Pinchouck, executive director for the Foundation for Florida Gateway College, said the huge turnout from Columbia and surrounding counties shows how important the college is to the five-county area. If this college didnt exist, really what would Lake City and our five counties look like? he said. I dont want to imagine that because I cant imagine where our students are going to go to school, where jobs are going to be created. So it means a tremendous amount to us to have all five of our counties represented. Theyre the ones that make it happen; were just the stewards of their money. The program also named Billy Ray Foister, a former foundation board president, the 2018 Distinguished Friend of the Foundation. Foister, originally from Kentucky, came to Florida when he was 26 years old to interview for a teaching position in Union County. He taught in the Union County school system in Lake Butler where he and his wife raised their two daughters. He retired in 1995 as assistant superintendent of Union County Public Schools. He served on the FGC College Foundation Board for more than 20 years and was the board president at least three times. Foister died in March. The award was accepted by his daughters, Angie Foister Hingson and Allyson Foister Beatty, and their family members. We are incredibly thankful for the college to award this to our dad, Angie Hingson said. He certainly loved Florida Gateway College and loved what it stands for. Were just so appreciative. He was so involved and encouraging about new learning every day, added Allyson Foister Beatty. To hear some of the stories, knowing that his memory encourages [others], that is such an honor for us. We appreciate everything the foundation has done for the many, many years hes been a part of that. We feel very lucky to be a part of that and be honored in this way. Pinchouck mentioned the importance of also recognizing Foisters contribution to the foundation through its board. He was very passionate about the college, the foundation and the students in his hometown of Union County, he said. We wished he could have been here with us, but we didnt realize he wasnt going to be here when we made this award. So it means a lot to us to still be able to honor him and his family for everything that hes done for us. During the program Pinchouck also announced that an endowment in the names of Herbert and Ann Darby has been established. The Darbys had been contributing to the fund since 2005 to establish the endowment. This was a special occasion, said Jean Williams, the schools first financial aid administrator and long time coach and athletic director, following the luncheon. My heart has always been directed in this area of helping deserving students who have an opportunity to go to school. Its the only thing that is going to save our country and future. Its something that we need to emphasize the importance of to everybody that we can.

FRACASContinued From 1A a child relative he claimed was being beaten and locked inside a small room. Around 1:20 p.m., the Columbia County Sheriffs Office responded to a reported disturbance at Pelletier Sisters Cuban Restaurant off Northeast Bascom Norris Drive. A deputy found Pelletier outside the business. Pelletier claimed he went to the restaurant to confront Jessie Lee Rosario about a five-year-old relative being consistently beaten and abused, according to a CCSO report. Pelletier said Rosario pushed him against a wall and threatened to kill him. As Rosario turned around, Pelletier said he punched the man in the back of the head because he was trying to grab a knife. After punching Rosario, Pelletier said he waited outside the restaurant for law enforcement. Rosario told deputies Pelletier came into the restaurant angry and tried to start an argument, according to the report. Pelletier grabbed him by the throat and choked him to the point that he could not breathe, Rosario said. While trying to escape the fight, Rosario said Pelletier punched him in the back of the head. The deputy noted dried blood and visible red marks around Rosarios neck and a bump on the back of his head. Emergency medical responders examined and cleared Rosario after he mentioned being dizzy and asked for an ambulance, according to the report. The restaurant owner told CCSO that Pelletier, who is his brother, came into the business and started yelling at everyone before attacking Rosario. Two witnesses gave accounts of the incident. One said she was outside smoking a cigarette when Pelletier arrived and started arguing with everyone inside the restaurant, according to the report. The second witness said she turned around after hearing the commotion and saw Rosario pushing Pelletier. Pelletier then punched Rosario, the witness said. Pelletier was taken without incident to Columbia County Detention Facility. The Florida Department of Children and Families is involved in the case, said CCSO spokesperson Murray Smith. School Board breakdownAbsentee, early voting and Election Day totals by precinctGRAPHICS BY CARL MCKINNEY *Breakdown unavailable for this precinct Transportation headquarters and set out north on South Marion Avenue toward downtown. It will cross West Duval Street, or U.S. Highway 90, and continue on North Marion Avenue where crowds can watch from sidewalks, Scott said. Local law enforcement will have the parade route cordoned off and closed to traffic. Scott said the parade typically takes about an hour to fully make its way through the route. He said there was a special event planned at VFW Post 2206, located at 3434 Forest Lawn Way, afterward. At our post after we will have hamburgers and hotdogs for our vets and our families, Scott said. Thats something that we do every year. He said the parade was one of the posts major annual events. We do other events, Scott said. We send stuff over seas to troops. We do a lot of great things. Scott said the post had members worldwide, including his son, who is on active duty with the Navy on the Japanese island of Okinawa. He said Post 2206 was founded in 1932 and has organized the parade for more than a decade. Scott has been with the local post for three years but said hes been involved with its auxiliary for 18. Its a well-run parade, Scott said. Its full of young people as well as veterans. PARADEContinued From 1A mechanic, found a passion for restoring vintage trailers about a decade ago when he restored his first early 1960s Shasta camper trailer. On Wednesday, Whitley was driving from his home in Atlanta to Live Oak towing a new addition to his camper collection, a 1956 Silver Dome trailer, which will be on display at the event. For about six years, Whitley has led Gathering of the Times, which travels park-to-park for rallies. He said he developed the hobby after seeing a trailer on the many camping trips he takes with his wife in North Georgia. After attending concerts at the Spirit of the Suwannee, he said the venue looked ideal for the groups members and a free show for the public. This will be the first year Gathering of the Times has met at the park. Whitley said hes had members from Canada at the events and trailers dating back to 1947. They go back into the s and s, but not at this rally I dont think, Whitley said. Unless somebody surprises us, who knows? He said the trailers come in all shapes, sizes and colors, and some are towed by antique vehicles. Trailer owners will be on standby to answer visitors questions and provide glimpses inside the trailers. Its just going to be a good time, Whitley said.

Remember the start to Donald Trumps presidency? Feels like a million years ago, and a million news cycles, we know. But on Jan. 23, 2017, his first work day in office, Trump made it clear that his Job One would be boosting economic growth. The president said he wanted to reduce the corporate tax rate and relieve the burden of federal regulation. Good, we wrote at the time: Those are the kinds of moves that encourage companies to invest more and add jobs. Trump and the Republicancontrolled Congress did their part by cutting red tape and passing tax reform. The economy is responding. Actually, its booming in a way Americans havent experienced in years. The business climate looks great and employers are hiring, and paying more. These are terrific times for American workers. According to Fridays Labor Department report, employers added 250,000 jobs in October, a far higher number than economists expected. The unemployment rate held at 3.7 percent, a figure not seen in nearly 50 years. With more job openings across the country than job seekers, wages are rising: Average earnings increased 3.1 percent from a year earlier. Congrats if you got a raise. The jobless rate would have dropped, except that the participation rate is higher, meaning some people who previously gave up looking for work re-entered the job market. Meanwhile, the unemployment rate for Hispanics hit a record low 4.4 percent. It was near a record low for African-Americans at 6.2 percent. Employers are hiring for a reason: The business climate is exceptionally strong. Growth last quarter was 3.5 percent, significantly higher than the 2 percent average of the past decade. Tuesdays midterm elections will be decided on many issues, and influenced by the totality of Trumps chaotic, divisive leadership. But its undeniable the president and Congress get credit for this era of healthy job growth. There are plenty of measures of American satisfaction and security, but having a job is fundamentally important. Growth creates prosperity. And by the way, employees pay taxes. Sustaining this growth is the only option besides higher taxes for generating government revenue to help reduce the national debt of $21 trillion. That revenue also will help pay for tax reform, which fixed the outdated tax code. In other words, everything positive starts with jobs. OPINION Money played a role, apparently big, big money, and so did history, misconceptions, radicalization of the innocent and feminist anger for a guy named Trump. The story is that the Republicans lost the House and that the nation lost, too. It lost glorious opportunities for still more prize-worthy legislation and majoritarian protection from anti-democratic Democratic malevolence. A Republican House, on the legislative side, did what a Democratic House would never do, for instance: It helped give us a tax-reform package saying heres a job, theres a job, everywhere is a job, job, job. The Democrats said wait, the tax cuts are just for the rich and, anyway, where are wage hikes? Well, they are now surrounding us, and thats what happens when you get out of the way of American businesses, not just by reducing overly high taxes, but also scotching disruptive, mindless regulations that give worthy regulations a bad name. And, on top of instigating economic growth that helps the poor more than any welfare program, the cuts did reduce taxes more for the middle class than the rich. Democrats wont admit that. It makes them feel unneeded. And so they misled you, and its a worry that they will play budget tricks and wont line up behind any reasonable remedy to anything. Instead, some say, theyll be preoccupied with impeachment, investigations and any means they can think of to yank the chair out from under a seated president. Concerning policy options, some Democrats have also found it pays to be socialistic because all kinds of young voters are socialistic and, if history has never allowed socialism to succeed, maybe it can be persuaded to change its mind. Despite all of that, the Democrats did grab gobs of cash from evil Wall Street and vastly outspent Republicans on smothering TV ads, perhaps hoping they would minimalize mindfulness to a state of support. Divisiveness, thou art enshrined, and, given President Donald Trumps cockamamie, vituperative tweets and speeches. Its not just the fault of intellectual meandering about the end of America. Its not just campuses gone wacko. It is not just wide-eyed mobs letting their narrow minds rule. It is not only decapitation jokes or some urban dwellers believing most rural, blue-collar types are racist barbarians at the gates. No, Trump has contributed to the point of engendering hate expressing itself in terms his own stumbling tongue cannot equal. Of course, the presidents party consistently loses loads of House seats in midterm elections, and none of this is to say that Democratic voters were without legitimate concerns, even if a bit off sometimes. Many Democratic votes, we know, came from suburban women whose fears are said to include the possibility of a refashioned Supreme Court repealing the Roe v. Wade abortion ruling. Thats actually as far-fetched as thinking it will repeal womens rights to vote. And meanwhile lots of Americans understood how dishonest and close to subversive the Democrats were in their attempts to stop Senate approval of Brett Kavanaugh as a justice. Thats likely one reason Republicans increased their majority in a Senate that will still be able to deliver on judges and justices. Thats hugely important if you dislike liberal justices amending the Constitution through so-called interpretations. I, for one, was pleased to see former presidential candidate Mitt Romney elected to the Senate from Utah; I look forward to his leadership and remember President Barack Obama mocking him for viewing Russia as an enemy. Interesting, isnt it, that the disreputable Russian-collusion probe was hardly brought up by the Democrats in this outing and that Trump still connects sufficiently with the American people to have likely made a difference in some races? These are disorienting times we live in, but the pollsters were pretty much right, as opposed to flubs in 2016. If they get good enough, will TV news shows devoting nine-tenths of their time to predictions come to consider elections unnecessary?

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, Chairman ANOTHER VIEW A.I.s got you IDd by gaitChina has just employed new gait recognition technology that can identify individuals by the way they walk. This is police surveillance taken to a whole new level of frightening. Whispers are that Americas airports might make a decent testing ground to bring the artificial intelligence here. That would open quite the can of worms now, wouldnt it? China, totalitarian nation as it is, doesnt have to concern itself with piddly questions of civil rights and pesky matters of privacy infringements. As such, its been busily scooping up all the Big Data it needs to achieve technological breakthroughs, merrily speeding in the meanwhile toward global dominance in the artificial intelligence arena as vowed. China will overtake America as leading AI superpower, warns ex-Google Beijing bigwig, the Register reported in September, in a piece on how the communist-run country will become the global leader in technology within the next five years. China plans to dominate AI, with a vanguard of robotic doctors like Biomind, the Los Angeles Times reported in July, in a story how Beijing had just pitted new machine-learned robotics against human physicians to interpret neuroimages setting the stage for massive technology breakthroughs in the medical sector. The pressure for America to keep ahead of the A.I. game is intense. As Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats warned in a Citadel speech in September, modern day China has been among the most active foreign states conducting cyber activities against United States interests. Meanwhile, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis advised in a May memo to President Donald Trump that America needed to put more forth in terms of shaping a federal artificial intelligence policy if only for national security reasons. But America needs to tread carefully here. Yes, the United States has to stay on the forefront of technology to remain competitive in the markets, and as means of defense and security. The challenge, though, is to accomplish this goal without becoming a China without turning into an outright police state with Big Brother eyes watching all and Big Data fingers scooping and collecting and reporting everything. The responsibility of Americas powers-that-be is to meet this challenge. In China, its this: You dont need peoples cooperation for us to be able to recognize their identity. Gait analysis cant be fooled by simply limping, walking with splayed feet or hunching over, because were analyzing all the features of an entire body, said Huang Yongzhen, the CEO of Watrix, the company that devised the gait surveillance system, ABC News reported. In America, its this: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects shall not be violated. And this: No person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law And this: All citizens are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. These are cherished, long-held protections and guarantees of privacies, individual rights and God-given freedoms. Any race to the top of technology cannot be allowed to violate these principles. America must never allow itself to become a China no, not even for national security reasons. This isnt just a challenge for technological researchers; its a duty of Americas political gatekeepers.This time, nation loses, tooChicago TribuneWhy the economy looks so bright Washington Times Democrats did grab gobs of cash from evil Wall Street and vastly outspent Republicans on smothering TV ads, perhaps hoping they would minimalize mindfulness to a state of support.

FWHS FOOTBALL CHS FOOTBALLFILE Fort Whites Karsen Cembruch is one of six returning seniors for the Lady Indians. By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comFORT WHITE Fort Whites soccer teams are back in action for another campaign. The boys and girls varsity teams open regular season next week. Both squads look to build on last years season, which ended early in the District 5-2A tournament. It wont be easy, especially for the boys, who return only seven players from last year. Fort White boys open their season next Monday against Baker County at the CYSA field. The Indians struggled in league play, winning only two district games last season. Fort Whites second-year coach Clayton McPeak believes his team can potentially make some noise in the tough district, even with several new players. I think Ive got some great gentlemen that will be able to work with the team, he said. Weve talked about helping to build our program. These are the gentlemen that are going to have [future] teams stand on their shoulders. And hopefully kind of rise so we can see what team we can have in just a few years I think we have a pretty good season coming up. Fort White will lean on its seven seniors, including goalkeeper Tucker Williamson and defender Hunter Chestnut. Both players were anchors on last years team and will be expected to be lead the Indians again. Fort White will try to navigate its rigorous schedule, which includes nondistrict games at Columbia and at Lafayette. Im excited about every PREVIEW continued on 6BIndians get set for tough districtFWHS SOCCER PREVIEWS By MARK LONGAssociated PressJACKSONVILLE The Jacksonville Jaguars used their bye week to ponder the teams precarious position. Mired in a four-game losing streak and being 0-2 in the AFC South, they came to this conclusion: They must win at division rival Indianapolis (3-5) on Sunday. Its essentially a playoff atmosphere for Jacksonville (3-5) in early November. This is a thousand percent a mustwin, linebacker Myles Jack said Wednesday. No. 1, its a conference game that weve got to win. And then were on a four-game losing streak, so we cant lose another game. NFL teams are usually reluctant to put too much emphasis on any one game, especially in the middle of the season. But for the Jaguars, who openly talked about having Super Bowl aspirations, they understand another loss or two likely would end their dwindling playoff hopes.NFLJaguars taking must-win approachJacksonville believes it must beat Indianapolis to keep playoff hopes alive.Finding their grooveBy JORDAN KROEGERjkroeger@lakecityreporter.comStudy and rest. Thats been the game plan at practice this week for Columbia ahead of Fridays Region 1-7A quarterfinal against Fletcher. Head coach Brian Allen wants his players rested, healthy and fully prepared for the tough test the Senators will present in the teams rematch from earlier this season. Fletcher (7-3) pushed Columbia to the brink on Oct. 19, missing a late two-point conversion in a 21-20 loss and the Tigers dont expect it to be easier this time around. Thats why Allen has taken the pads off his players this week and limited contact in practice. Instead, the Tigers have been focused on nailing Allens game plan and finding consistency on both sides of the ball to make sure their rematch with the Senators doesnt come down to the buzzer again. Hes keeping us healthy, receiver Marquez Bell said. Were not in pads, you see us in helmets. Were basically trying to get through the game plan and execute, execute and execute everything. That especially goes for the offense, which is looking to put up numbers similar to the ones it put up in the first half of the season. Columbia averaged 44.4 points per game on the way to a 5-0 start to the season, but that number has dropped to 35.8 over the past five games, aided by a 57-7 romp over GROOVE continued on 6BColumbia returns to basics ahead of playoff matchup with Fletcher.

No more film study, no more practices no more football, if the Indians lose on Friday night. Fort Whites 15 seniors recognize that and have reminded the team during practice this week to remain motivated and focused for a potential run at state. Friday, thats it, senior cornerback Donovan Jenkins said. We win or we dont get to play on Monday. Its our last ride. Weve been working hard for this all the way back since the spring. We cannot waste this opportunity. Jenkins, who transferred from Gainesville, is one of a few newcomers who bring   some playof f experience to the tribe. He hopes he can be a much-needed spark defensively as the Indians look to advance past the second round for the first time. It turns up a whole another level, Jenkins said. Playoffs are a completely different atmosphere. You got to not let the lights get too bright and not let the game get too big for you. Ive let [teammates] know, this aint no play play, this is it.

Claimed WR DeAndre Carter off waivers from Philadelphia. MINNESOTA VIKINGS Claimed RB Ameer Abdullah off Detroit waivers. Waived RB Roc Thomas. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS Agreed to terms with WR Dez Bryant. We put ourselves in this situation, quarterback Blake Bortles said. We created this small margin for error by not winning football games. Weve put ourselves here. We know we still got a chance and weve got to play really well for the whole second half of the season to go where we want to go. The Jags are counting on running back Leonard Fournettes return making a significant difference. Fournette missed six of the last seven games with a strained right hamstring. He practiced in full for the first time in more than a month Monday and did the same Wednesday. Jacksonville built its offense around Fournette and hasnt been nearly as physical or effective without him. The team signed Jamaal Charles for a week and then traded for Carlos Hyde in hopes of filling the void, but neither move paid dividends. Coach Doug Marrone said he lost faith in his offensive line in London, specifically in short-yardage situations, but has since stopped short of proclaiming Fournette the teams savior. Players, though, believe Fournettes return could be a turning point. I know everybodys fired up to have him back in the lineup, Bortles said. I know Im excited to watch him run. I know guys are excited to block for him and kind of see him go. We got so used to him doing his thing last year and watching that and do everything off of that. Not having him has made us change some of the things we do, but to be able to have him back and healthy and ready to go is exciting. Marrone evaluated coaches, players and schemes during the bye week, but decided not to make any wholesale changes. He tweaked the schedule significantly, mostly so guys wouldnt feel like things were the same after the break. Its just kind of like the atmosphere is a little tighter, Jack said. Obviously, everybody is I wouldnt say desperate but we just need (a victory). Its a mustwin week. As the weeks go on, it just gets worse and worse. Hopefully this is the week we change it. With the sense of urgency on the rise, the Jaguars have started to unravel. There was a locker room scuffle last month following a loss to Houston, a players-only meeting the next day and then a run-in with London police over an unsettled nightclub tab. They have eight games left to save the season. It starts with a must-win game against the Colts, who have won two in a row. I dont think you can look at it as a whole eight games weve got to win eight games in a row or six out of the eight, Bortles said. Obviously, playing Indy is a division game, and thats an important one. Its kind of like Doug talked about all week and all last week: youve got to win one to get it rolling. Its all anyones really focused on right now.YONG KIM/Philadelphia InquirerPhiladelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz runs for a second quarter first down past Jacksonville Jaguars free safety Tashaun Gipson (left) and linebacker Blair Brown on Oct. 28 at Wembley Stadium in London, England. JAGSContinued From 1B IN BRIEFORLANDODrummond has 23 points, 19 rebounds; Pistons beat MagicAndre Drummond had 23 points and 19 rebounds and the Detroit Pistons beat the Orlando Magic 103-96 on Wednesday night to snap a five-game losing streak. Blake Griffin added 20 points, Reggie Jackson had 15, and Stanley Johnson 13. Evan Fournier led Orlando with 27 points, and D.J. Augustin had 16. Fournier hit three straight shots and Aaron Gordon added a dunk to pull Orlando to 94-93 with 2:58 left. Griffin made a pair of free throws to start a 9-0 run that Jackson finished with a 3-pointer and a layup. The Magic opened the third period with three straight 3-pointers and a 27-9 run to take a 78-67 lead, Detroit, as it did the first two periods, rallied in the final minute to get control. Griffin hit a 3-point er and a layup and Ish Smith had a block and breakaway layup at the buzzer that made it 80-78.METAIRIE, La.Saints sign ex-Cowboys wide receiver BryantDez Bryant has found a new team, agreeing to join the already prolific offense of the surging New Orleans Saints. The former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver, who has been looking for an NFL home since becoming a free agent in April, will now have a chance to catch passes from one of the most prolific quarterbacks in NFL history in New Orleans Drew Brees. The 30-year-old Bryant and the Saints agreed to contract terms on Wednesday, and it remains unclear to what extent Bryant will play when New Orleans visits Cincinnati on Sunday. Bryant spent his first eight years in the NFL with Dallas and last season caught 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns, including a 50-yard scoring play, for the Cowboys.CHARLOTTE, N.C.Truex Jr. moving to Gibbs with crew chiefNASCAR champion Martin Truex Jr. and his crew chief will move to Joe Gibbs Racing next season to remain in the Toyota organization after their race team folds in two weeks. Truex won his first Cup title last year driving for Furniture Row Racing. Barney Visser had funded the team out of pocket for most of its existence but received relief help the last few seasons from sponsorship. When the primary sponsor of the No. 78 decided to leave NASCAR and Visser couldnt find a replacement, the owner decided to close because he found it too expensive to field a championship-contending team without outside funding. Truex will replace Daniel Suarez as driver of the No. 19 team. Sponsorship was not announced. Associated Press

LAKE CIT Y REPOR TER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2018 3B DEAR ABBY: I read that there is a suicide some where in the world every 40 se conds. Numbers rise at holiday time. Feeling like a child whose nose is pressed against a window, seeing others from the outside as they enjoy the warmth of the moment, can lead to thoughts of abandonment and despair. Thats why I have a mission I set an extra place at my table. I can attest that it works. One year I announced in church that my home would be open to anyone who didnt have a family. A woman came forward and accepted my invitation. We spent the day getting to know each other and bonded in friendship. Please encourage your readers to set an extra place at their holiday table. My brother committed suicide. I move forward in his honor. FULL OF GRATITUDE IN PHOENIX DEAR FULL OF GRATITUDE: Please accept my sympathy for the tragic loss of your brother. Im pleased to help spread the word. Isolation can be a killer, and inclusion can be a lifesaver. Bless you for what you are doing. I hope other readers will consider it and follow your example. DEAR ABBY: I have a dilemma I dont know how to maneuver through. I have been working as an intern at a company for about 18 months. During the summer, I completed a test I needed to become fully licensed in my field. However, Im still work ing in my current position at in tern wages, although I have repeatedly request ed a meeting with my emp loyer to talk money. He continues to say he doesnt have time, and we will discuss it ladter. He even agreed to a time on a certain day but failed to show up for the meeting. When I emailed him the amount I want, he replied, Well talk about it later. Should I continue to press the issue? Call him? Email? Or just look for other work? CONCERNED ABOUT MONEY DEAR CONCERNED: You have done enough. Pushing your employer fur ther wont help. The ball is no w in his court. Start qui etly looking for another job on e in which you will be appropriately compensated. DEAR ABBY: How can I tactfully tell an elementary school teacher in whose class I assist that she uses poor grammar and words that arent words (i.e., I boughten this yesterday, or, Her and me went to the soccer game.)? I am fond of this teacher but feel shes doing a disservice to her pupils. Other than that shes a devoted, energetic teacher. It is really diffi cult to bite my tongue. TA CTFUL IN THE EAST DEAR TACTFUL: Children model their behavior after the example the adults around them provide. That a teacher would consistently do what shes doing in a classroom setting is shocking. How could she have become a licensed educator with such poor English skills? I dont think that as her subordinate you should take it upon yourself to correct the woman. I do think this is something you should discuss with the school principal.

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): Be secretive about your plans. An important relationship can be taken to the next level if you are willing to make a couple of changes. Speak up and clear up any misunderstandings you might have regarding joint money, possessions or expenses. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Reinforce your position and your claims. Know what you want. Show interest as well as concerns. The best way to deal with situations is to be direct, fair and willing to compromise. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Discussions will help clear up a misunder standing. Expect someone to meddle in your affairs. Take steps to keep personal information and decisions secret for the time being. A personal or professional gesture will be difficult to resist. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Review your plans and present what you would like to see happen. Open up a dialogue with someone you have worked with in the past, and they may offer interesting suggestions that will help you pursue your plans. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Make a change and make a difference. Interact with people who share your goals. Network with people you see as leaders and self-starters. Much can be accomplished if you are sincere and passionate about what you want to see happen. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take a stance and follow through. You can bring about important change if you are willing to stand up for your beliefs. A meeting, a conference or reaching out to people who have something to offer will help your progress. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don't jeopardize your ability to get ahead or to hold on to what belongs to you. Someone will use underhanded tactics if you are too accommodating. Keep your personal information a secret, and refuse to let anyone bully you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Being secretive will be in your best interest. The less others know about your plans, the easier it will be to reach your goal. Arguing or dealing with excessive people should be avoided. Know your limits and stick to your plan. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Keep your story straight. If you get mixed up, you will give the wrong impression. Your focus should be on yourself, not others. Personal changes will lift your spirits and make you feel good. Use your attributes to further your position. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don't take anything for granted. Just when you least expect it, someone will throw you a curveball that will send you on a tailspin. Stay on top of what's going on around. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): How you handle your finances should be changed to suit the economic climate. Don't fret over what others are doing. Keep your personal matters separate and safe. Walk away from anyone trying to persuade you to take a risk. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Listen, but do not react. Someone will try to coerce you into something you shouldn't do. Excessive behavior should be avoided. Focus on gaining stability, not upsetting what you've worked so hard to achieve. Singer Bonnie Bramlett is 74. Singer Bonnie Raitt is 69. Mary Hart is 68.

By JENNA FRYERAssociated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Kevin Harvicks bid for a second NASCAR title suffered a massive setback when he was stripped of his berth in the championship race after series inspectors found his winning car from Texas Motor Speedway had been deliberately altered to give him a performance advantage. NASCAR said Wednesday night it believes Harvicks spoiler was intentionally offset to the right to give the Ford an aerodynamic advantage when he drove through the corners at Texas. NASCAR cant prove if Stewart-Haas Racing made its own spoiler or altered one from its manufacturer, but senior vice president of competition Scott Miller said the penalty is the same in either case. The illegal spoiler was not found until the No. 4 Ford received a thor ough inspection at NASCARs Research and Development Center when it was returned to North Carolina after Sundays race. An inspector at Texas thought the spoiler looked off, but Miller said it had to be removed from the car. Once that happened, it was percent, as black and white as it gets, Miller said. Spoilers will be checked at Phoenix this weekend, Miller said, and NASCAR will likely ramp up its penalties next year. We need to change the culture to where we dont have to play this cat and mouse game with the teams, Miller said. Its getting borderline ridiculous. The whopping penalty negated the automatic berth Harvick earned into NASCARs version of a final four. In addition to losing his spot in next weekends finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Harvick must also close out the final two races of the season without crew chief Rodney Childers and car chief Robert Smith. Both were suspended for two races. Childers also was fined $75,000. Harvick was docked 40 driver points, and Stewart-Haas Racing was docked 40 owner points as well. Harvick enters this weekends race at Phoenix fourth among the remaining eight playoff drivers, three points above the cutline. Should there be a tie for the final transfer spot, Harvick would not be eligible to use the Texas victory in the tiebreaking procedure. Greg Zipadelli, vice president of competition at SHR, said the team will not appeal the penalties. Tony Gibson will be Harvicks interim crew chief and Nick DeFazio will be interim car chief. We work tirelessly across every inch of our race cars to create speed and, unfortunately, NASCAR determined we ventured into an area not accommodated by its rule book, Zipadelli said. We will not appeal the penalty. Instead, we will direct our immediate focus to this weekends event in Phoenix and control our destiny on the racetrack. Harvicks win at Texas was his series-leading eighth of the year and qualified him for Homestead along with Joey Logano. Now, three spots in the finale will be up for grabs Sunday in Phoenix. Harvick won the 2014 Cup Series championship and went to Phoenix that season in a must-win situation to race for the title. He pulled it off and is a nine-time winner at Phoenix, including earlier this year. Harvick has been in NASCARs finale three of the last four years. The penalty is disastrous for SHR, which went into the third round of the playoffs with all four of its drivers eligible for the championship. Logano grabbed the first spot, which meant the best SHR could do was qualify three cars for Homestead. Now, SHR could wind up locked out of the finale outright if Harvick doesnt advance past Phoenix. Aric Almirola, Kurt Busch and Clint Bowyer are all below the cutline and likely need to win at Phoenix to advance. The penalty against Harvick also closes a rough race for NASCAR, which erroneously penalized Jimmie Johnson moments before the race began. Johnson was sent to the back of the field because NASCAR believed his car failed inspection three times, but he had failed only twice. NASCAR announced the mistake during the race and said Monday it has updated its procedures to prevent a similar mistake moving forward. Later in the same event, Bowyer was penalized for a crew member being over the pit road wall too early. The crew member was sitting on the wall with his feet touching the asphalt on pit road, which was a violation, even if it seemed extreme. Now Harvicks team has been rocked by a penalty that may change the composition of the final four drivers racing for the title. Harvick, along with Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr., is part of NASCARs so-called Big Three that dominated the season through a stretch of summer racing. All three were expected to race for the championship, and none is qualified for Homestead yet with one race remaining. It is not our desire to issue any penalties, but well do so when necessary to ensure each race and championship is contested on a level playing field, Miller said earlier Wednesday. We will now return our focus to Phoenix, and the battle for a championship. NASCAR later allowed Miller to answer questions about Harvicks penalty because of the magnitude of the situation. NASCAR had moved away in recent years from detailing infractions publicly. Also Wednesday, NASCAR penalized the teams of Ryan Blaney and Erik Jones, who already have been eliminated from the playoffs. Blaney crew chief Jeremy Bullins was fined $50,000, and car chief Kirk Almquist was suspended for the next two races. Jones crew chief Chris Gayle was fined $50,000 and car chief Jason Overstreet was suspended the next two races. It took until Wednesday for the penalties to be announced because the cars were in transit Monday from Texas to North Carolina. Inspection was on Tuesday, and the teams do the actual teardown themselves. Once the Harvick violation was discovered late Tuesday, NASCAR had to examine whether the violation was correct and didnt release its findings until the next day two days before Harvick and his interim crew chief and car chief will practice at Phoenix.

After an early exit last year, losing to Florida High in the first round of the playoffs, the Indians aim to put an end to their postseason woes. Fort White senior quarterback Dylan Blair knows the feeling of playoff disappointment. The transfer from Columbia saw last years season unravel at the hands of Lincoln in a 36-33 Class 7A quarterfinal loss. With a new supporting cast, Blair is set for his second career playoff start this week. The battle-tested quarterback believes hes more ready than ever to lead a postseason run in his final season behind center. Our mentality has been just to go win, Blair said. Nobody wants to go home. This could be our last game so we need to win it. I hope [my experience] will help me out when we get in that game situation, so I can be able to pick my team up and tell them what to do We got to keep our minds focused on one game at a time. You cant look too far ahead I think I am more prepared than ever. Blair and Jenkins are part of a small list of Fort White seniors whove started in playoff games a list that also includes Jaquan Robinson and Matt DiMauro, who were part of the 2015 squad that nearly reached the third round. Fort White will lean on these veteran players to provide the leadership necessary to make a deep playoff run. This could be it, Fort White coach Demetric Jackson said. Weve stressed to them the importance of giving everything they got, and not taking anyone lightly. And making sure we practice great, come out with great energy, because this could be it. Theres no guarantee that were going to win this [week]. You lose this, and were collecting equipment next week. The Indians are happy to be back in the playoffs for another season, but making it to the big dance wasnt their main goal. Fort White hopes to keep its momentum alive, looking for a seventh-straight victory before next weeks regional semifinal round. We plan on playing next week, DiMauro said. In our minds, its a guarantee that were going to be playing next week, and the week after that. So we know its riding on our shoulders. We know we have to lead this team. But in our minds, were guaranteed to play next round. Atlantic Coast. Fletcher was also the only team this season to hold Columbia to under 30 points. In order to get those offensive numbers back up, the Tigers returned to basics this week at practice, reverting back to schemes they ran earlier in the season when they put up 44 points against Gainesville, 49 against Suwannee, 42 against Robert E. Lee and 48 against Madison County. And everybody remembers the 33-20 win over No. 1 nationally ranked IMG Academy in the preseason classic. Back to basics is the best route to go because weve kind of been getting away from the offense and what we run, Columbia quarterback Jordan Smith said. Getting back to that is probably good for us because the first couple of games we were on fire. You saw what happened against IMG and Madison and Robert E. Lee. Weve just got to get back to it and do what we know how to do and thats Columbia High football. Allen credits the Tigers hot start to their success in 7v7 action over the summer. That was where Smith and his receivers developed timing, chemistry and consistency, leading to 15 touchdowns from Smith in the first five games of the season. Somewhere along the way it faltered a little, which is funny to think about considering the Tigers were still putting up over 30 points a game in a 4-1 finish to the season. We know that we have a highly explosive offense, Allen said. But if you look at the last four or five games, it hasnt been as good as the first four or five were. But then at the same time theres still a 30-point average but this offense is explosive enough to be a 40 or 50-point football team on any Friday night. This week and even coming into this week, weve taken out of what weve been doing practice-wise as to why the timing might not be there or why the consistency might not be there. Weve been able to pinpoint an area and weve locked back in to getting that timing back to where it needs to be The first four or five games we were in rhythm with what weve done all offseason with 7-on-7 and it was automatic. We took some of those things out, and it started to sputter. So we had to get back to that this week, and I thought the guys did a great job of it. Its beneficial offensively and defensively with some of the things we incorporated, and I think our guys are ready to go. Smith and his receivers have also been spending extra time together after practice this week to make sure theyre in prime form this Friday. The unit stayed for a while after practice on Wednesday, with Allen watching from the sideline as his players perfected their craft to hopefully kick off a playoff run this Friday. Near the end Allen cracked a smile and said to Smith, I know thats going to be a touchdown on Friday. Smith and company didnt stop running plays from there either, and only went home when Allen finally had to turn off the lights on the field to signal the end of the day. We finally had time to come out here, Smith said. Thank God its before the playoffs so we can get all the chemistry and have everybody on the same page. Theyre telling me some things Im probably not seeing and Im telling them things Im seeing. Were gelling. Weve been mashing like that throughout the season, but everything is coming together. Its just time to go do it. No better time than now. GROOVE Continued From 1BERIC JACKSON/Lake City ReporterFort White quarterback Dylan Blair unloads a pass on Wednesday. SENIORS Continued From 1B game, McPeak added. Every game gives us an opportunity to test our ability, whether its against people in our district or not. Its just an opportunity for the gentlemen to show how well they can work together and to try to get some points on the board. Thats really the biggest thing. Fort Whites girls team finished fifth in the nineteam district last season. The Lady Indians hope to improve their finish this year, but it will be difficult as the squad tries to replace eight seniors, including forward Caycee Collier and longtime goalkeeper Sypress Moore. This season Fort White turns to a new group of seniors: Brianna Smith, Harleigh Walker, Karsen Cembruch, Giselle Cuevas, Cheyenne Hodges and Kalyn Waugh. The Lady Indians hope to get the most out of this group, especially Hodges, Waugh and Walker. All three are pegged to be the teams top midfielders this coming season. They got to step up, girls coach Ward Frisina said of the six seniors. All those girls, for the last three years, have had seniors in front of them. Now they have to step up and get the job done. Fort White girls open their season at Crescent City on Tuesday. PREVIEW Continued From 1BFILE Fort Whites Cheyenne Hodges will be counted on to deliver the offensive punch for the Lady Indians this season.
