A former Hamilton County busi ness owner has been sentenced to more than 12 years in federal prison and must pay more than $8 million in restitution for con spiracy to commit mail and wire fraud. U.S. District Judge Timothy J. Corrigan sentenced Karamchand Raj Doobay, 44 of Orlando, to 12 years and seven months on March 1. Doobay was also or dered to pay 85 victim-investors a total of $8,663,264.58 and must forfeit the property used in the commission of the offenses. He pled guilty on Jan. 31, 2017. The sentencing comes from a scheme to defraud investors in an RV Park and immigrant investors in a senior citizen facility, both in Hamilton County. Having no remorse or sympa thy for those he stole from, Doo bay continued to defraud vic tims even after his 2015 arrest, FDLE Tallahassee Special Agent in Charge Mark Perez said in a release. I appreciate the efforts of the investigators and the U.S. Attorneys Ofce in stopping Doobays continued hunt for new victims. According to court docu ments, Doobay operated busi nesses in Hamilton County, ac quiring a parcel of land located at 7516 SE 113th Boulevard in western Hamilton County, just east of Interstate 75. From around March 2009 through around December 2015, Doobay solicited inves tors to purchase subdivided lots on the land, guaranteeing returns between 9 to 41 percent for investments in RV lots and other lots for sale by his enti ty, Florida Gateway resort, the court documents state. He utilized various bank ac counts to collect funds for the purchase of RV lots that he pur ported to sell to investor pur chasers, according to the court documents. However, Doobay failed to disclose that he had previously contracted to sell and purportedly sold the same RV lots to other investors. The court documents also state that, from about May 2011 through about May 2016, Doobay conspired to commit wire fraud by promising to im migrant investors to use their investments for the develop ment, renovation and/or new construction of Senior Premier Living, a retirement community in Jasper, along I-75. Innstead, Doobay used a portion of the investors funds to pay Florida Gateway Resort investors and for his own personal use and enjoy ment. This case demonstrates the lengths that some criminals will go to target and take advantage of innocent victims, Charles P. Spencer, the Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Jacksonville Division, said in a release. But the FBI will work equally hard to hold those criminals accountable and protect their victims both here and abroad. Doobay was arrested in De cember 2015 after an investiga tion, which began in 2014, by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Hamilton County Sheriffs Ofce and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kelly S. Karase prosecuted the case.

Olive Church to host 131st Homecoming Dr. Tooten to hold annual spring revival next month LIVE OAK Covenant First Presby terian Church invites the community to A Service of Darkness on Good Friday, March 30, at 7:30 p.m. The service entitled, Hear Us, Holy Je sus, is by Douglas E. Wagner. Bill Pop lin will be directing the 24-voice choir. There will be scripture readings, congre gational responses and choral meditations. After each meditation the sanctuary will be darkened a little. The Tenebrae Service dates from the 6th century. It is a dramatic service to remember the death and passion of Jesus Christ. The literal translation of the Lat in word, tenebrae is shadows; thus the service moves from light to dark ness. In the early church it was celebrat ed on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of Holy Week. The purpose of the Tenebrae Service is to help us focus on the total impact of the darkest day in the history of Christianity, the day that Jesus died on the cross. The service is in complete contrast to Easter. The mood is what the followers of Jesus felt on the Friday long ago: shock, despair, gloom, grief and sadness; however, at the close of the service, the Christ candle returns as a sign of hope. The Good Friday service is designed to encourage the congregation to consider how their lives should reect the histori cal and spiritual event. This will be purely a service of reec tion. There is no admission charge and no offering will be taken. For more information, call 386-3654932. Covenant First Presbyterian hosting A Service of Darkness LIVE OAK Dr. Tim Tootens annual spring revival, set for April, will follow the theme Leading by Example. The revival, which began ve years ago after being organized by Tooten and his mother, Doris Tooten, is set for April 11-13 at the Greater Bethel AME Church, 608 Leslie Ave. NE in Live Oak. The reviv al will begin at 7 p.m. each night. Its my life mission to encourage everyone I come in contact with, Tooten said. This is especially true of the people who in and around the community where I grew up. Our culture is in need of a word of encouragement. Its my hope the spring revival will go a long way toward accomplishing this goal. Also during the week of the revival, Tooten will present the inaugural Leading by Example Community award. There are so many peo ple in our community who possess leadership skills, Tooten added. Thats why I nd it difcult to select just one person for the Leading by Example award. I believe God continues to raise up a generation of leaders in our communi ties, our churches and our homes. Tooten is a Live Oak native and 1976 graduate of Suwannee High School. He is the pastor and founder of Harvest Christian Ministries in Baltimore County, Md. He is also an Em my-Award winning broad cast education reporter at WBAL-TV, an NBC afliate. Wooten is also the author of the best-selling book, Leading by Exam ple, a Parental Guide to Teaching and Modeling Christian Faith at home. He recently donated more than 250 copies of his book to families in Mombasa, Kenya. For more information about the revival, please contact Tooten at 443-4143029.

According to SIS Princi pal Gary Caldwell, Cundiff presents a loving spirit to her students each and ev ery day and that approach gives her students the idea of having a second mom at school. When there is an after school activity in volving the students, Mrs. Cundiff is certainly one to be involved. In order to be named Teacher of the Month, the teachers class must average an i-Ready pro ciency of 70 percent or higher, lesson plans must be submitted each week as scheduled, must meet at tendance requirements, the class daily transition is in accordance with CHAMPS protocol and reports to as signed duties including the accurate and timely ling of reports. In addition to lling those criteria, Cundiff made an impact on her students. She is caring, makes everything fun, and is the nicest teacher I have ever known, Layla Merola said in the schools release. She is caring because she will always give you a chance even if you think you cant. She makes ev erything fun because when we study vocab she lets us play vocab musical chairs and she lets us sit or lay in a nook or a comfy sitting area. She is nice is because she gives us hugs when were feeling sick and she will let us lay down in peace and quiet. Lily Ingram added: She is understanding. She takes all of our circum stances into account. Mrs. Cundiff handles each sit uation different based on what it is. Finally, the biggest reason she deserved this award is because she is a fantastic role model and treats everyone with re spect. As the Teacher of the Month, Cundiff re ceives gift certicates to Beef O Bradys, Moes Southwest Grill, Big Wood BBQ & Grill, Queens Quick Carwash and a ower arrangement from Nobles Green House. She works very hard, encourages us to do our best, and she helps us when we are wrong, Cadence Denmark added in the release about her teacher. I think Mrs. Cundiff is a good role model too. In my opinion, Mrs. Cundiff is the best teacher in the world. tbnfn bfrrnbrrrb bb The Rural HEALTH Program, in partnership with Gethsemane Church of God in Christ in Live Oak, will host an interactive health education series entitled Faithful Families to help Su wannee County families eat smarter and move more.

SEE TARIFF, PAGE 10A The more closely I watch what the Florida legislature does, the more disturbing I nd their actions to be. This is the second year in a row that the legislature will need extra time to complete what should be completed in the regular session. This means the taxpayers will be paying for their food and housing, and each one of the legislators may spend up to $150 a day. Some of our legislators will be spending more in one day for their hotel rooms and lattes than their proposed increase per year of student funding. Some will say, Well, since the tragedy in Parkland occurred, they had more legislation to work on. I say that is a load of crap. School shootings have been happening in earnest since 1999. The big traves ty here is that the legislature could not be moved to do something about it until tragedy struck here in our state. The state budget is the one thing the legislature is re quired to do each year, but the state budget is the reason they will need extra time again this year. It would be almost understandable if the legislature was evenly split between Democrats and Republicans and they were hav ing earnest debates about issues that matter, but this is a case of Republicans trying to out-Republican each other. It is also a matter of them wasting time on bills that are frivolous. Our state legislators want to become the only state with year-round daylight savings time. The fact that our elected leaders found the time to craft and pass this ridiculous legislation, but could not nish their session on time, is mind blowing. I am glad the legislature will be spending an extra $400 million for school safety next year, but when you look into the history of the safe schools program it will Opinion SERVING SUWANNEE COUNTY SINCE 1884 A PAGE 6 rfrfnftrbfbf ftfrrbfbf Too little, way too late There are a couple of important economic lessons that the American people should learn. Im going to title one the seen and unseen and the other narrow well-dened large benets versus widely dispersed small costs. These lessons are appli cable to a wide range of government behavior, but lets look at just two examples. Last week, President Donald Trump enacted high tariffs on im ports of steel and aluminum. Why in the world would the U.S. steel and aluminum industries press the president to levy heavy tariffs? The answer is simple. Reducing the amounts of steel and aluminum that hit our shores enables American producers to charge higher prices. Thus, U.S. steel and aluminum produc ers will earn higher prots, hire more workers and pay them higher wages. They are the visible beneciaries of Trumps tariffs. But when the government creates a benet for one American, it is a virtual guarantee that it will come at the expense of another American an unseen victim. The victims of steel and aluminum tariffs are the companies that use steel and aluminum. Faced with higher input costs, they become less competitive on the world market. For example, companies such as John Deere may respond to higher steel prices by purchasing their parts in the international market rather than in the U.S. To become more competitive in the world market, some rms may move their production facilities to foreign countries that do not have tariffs on foreign steel and aluminum. Studies by both the Peterson Institute for International Economics and the Consuming Industries Trade Action Coalition show that steel-using industries such as the U.S. auto industry, its suppliers and manufacturers of heavy con struction equipment were harmed by tariffs on steel enacted by George W. Bush. Politicians love having seen beneciaries and unseen victims. The reason is quite simple. In the cases of the steel and aluminum industries, company executives will know whom to give political campaign contributions. Workers in those industries will know for whom to cast their votes. The people in the steeland aluminum-using industries may not know whom to blame for declining prots, lack of competitiveness and job loss. Theres no better scenario for politicians. Its heads politicians win and tails somebody else loses. Then theres the phenomenon of narrow well-dened large benets versus widely dispersed small costs. A good example can be found in the sugar industry. Sugar pro ducers lobby Congress to place restrictions on the impor tation of foreign sugar through tariffs and quotas. Those import restrictions force Americans to pay up to three times the world price for sugar. A report by the U.S. Gov ernment Accountability Ofce estimated that Americans pay an extra $2 billion a year because of sugar tariffs and quotas. Plus, taxpayers will be forced to pay more than $2 billion over the next 10 years to buy and store excess r Tariff increases lead to unseen victims WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, 2018 The Suwannee Democrat welcomes letters from readers on matters of public interest, with the following guide lines: Letters must contain your full name, address, daytime phone number and city of residence.

It is a basic American right. The political landscape is more polarized than ever and there seems to be little common ground for conservatives and progressives. Transparency keeping the light on the peoples business ought to be something ev eryone can agree on. Instead, conservatives want to reveal the secrets of liberals and liberals want to expose the actions of conservatives. Openness in government is not a liberal, conser vative, Republican, Democrat, independent, Liber tarian or freedom caucus issue. It often appears that whatever party is in the mi nority becomes the champion of transparency right up until the time it is in the majority. Politicians stump on transparency and are all about open access, until they have something they want to keep secret. The need for transparency in local, state and federal government transcends parties and political ideologies. Checks and balances provide few checks and little balance when ofcials broker deals behind closed doors and conceal documents that contain important information that the public has the right, and often the need, to know. Local government has the biggest impact in the lives of people on a day-to-day basis. Whether it is in the form of property taxes, sales taxes, business taxes, state-shared dollars or federal grants, loans and funding, local government is 100 percent taxpayer-funded. The public has the right to know how its money is being spent. The decisions being made, the dollars being doled out and the records being kept by city hall, the coun ty commission, the board of education or the utility district all belong to liberals, conservatives, Repub licans, Democrats, independents, Libertarians and even politically disinterested individuals. All stakeholders have a stake in open meetings and public records and should care about transparen cy issues. The lack of and need for true government trans parency should be about the most bipartisan cause that exists. Any elected ofcial who truly cares about public service in a real and meaningful way and fully un derstands what a representative form of government is all about, should not only champion openness in government, but should be the most effective watch dogs, looking out for the public trust. Sadly, those kinds of elected ofcials are hard to nd. The press tries to keep an eye on government and expose clandestine actions and in response journal ists are often ridiculed, belittled and even threatened for just doing their jobs, as they work to keep gov ernment honest by making use of access laws. But, the public needs to understand that access to government documents and actions is not just a media right. It is your right.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 7A Top opioid prescribers include non-specialists Nation rfn Raycom News Network Editors Note This is the second of three-part series on ways doctors, regulators and drug companies contribute to the nations opi oid addiction epidemic. Family physicians, nurse practitioners and doctors whose health care focuses on non-narcotic therapies are some of the nations most prolic opioid prescription writers in recent years. Federal guidelines say they shouldnt be. Medical professionals not specializing in oncology, surgery, emergency medi cine or pain, accounted for more than half of the 1,000 highest opioid prescribers in the Medicare Part D, a government-spon sored drug benet for the elderly and dis abled, over a three-year span beginning in 2013, a Raycom Media national investi gation has revealed. Pain doctors, whose use of opioids has come under increasing scrutiny by medical experts doubting the drugs ef fectiveness in curbing pain, represented nearly a third of the nations highest pre scribers. They include three doctors at an Alabama clinic who wrote 33,084 opioid prescriptions during a three-year period. Compare that to 40,124 prescriptions written by 900 doctors at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota did during the same time. Whats more, just 10 percent of the top providers have been disciplined by state medical boards for prescribing-related issues. And even after sanctions, the majority has been allowed to continue practicing. 1,000 opioid prescribers, breaking down their medical specialties, the number of prescriptions they wrote and their pre scribing rates compared to non-opioid drugs. The analysis was important because Medicare pays for at least one in four drug prescriptions nationally. The data included nurse practitioners and physician assistants medical care providers who can write prescriptions for the same controlled substances as the doctors they work for, raising concern among government regulators and law enforcement ofcials. Last year, the inspector general for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services analyzed 2016 Medicare data that identied questionable patterns of 401 prescribers and a third of them were nurse practitioners and physician assistants. Between 2013 and 2015, Medicares highest opioid prescribers included 60 nurse practitioners and 58 physician as sistants. None was higher than Darius McGee, a nurse practitioner at the Laurel Pain Clin ic in Laurel, Miss. He was the sixth high est prescriber in the Medicare program in the U.S. During that 3-year span, McGee wrote nearly 43,000 opioid prescriptions nearly three times as many opioid pre scriptions than his supervising doctor, Vivek Barclay. Barclay was the nations 274th highest prescriber under Medicare D. Detecting abusive prescribers That surprised John Dowdy, director of the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics and a former assistant U. S. attorney. It would be uncommon for a nurse practitioner to write more prescriptions than the doctor running the clinic, said Dowdy. That would certainly raise red ags. Any medical professional who is not a pain specialist and writes a lot of opioid prescriptions should cause concern, he said. If its a family practitioner or a gen eral practitioner, and theyre showing up on a list as a high-volume prescriber, we probably have a problem with that doctor, Dowdy said. Among the top prescribers are 199 general practitioners including Dr. John Richard, a family medicine physician in Lexington, Kent. At No. 40, he is the highest ranked fami ly-practice doctor on the list. In 2013, the Kentucky medical board led a complaint against him for prescrib ing excessive amounts and combinations of addictive drugs. The case settled when Richard agreed to pay a $7,500 ne and, among other things, maintain a drug log. Between 2013 and 2015, Richard wrote 28,099 opioid prescriptions for his 3,318 patients. Each year, his volume of prescrip tions increased noticeably even though the number of patients he treated with opioid drugs only rose slightly. He still practices medicine and declined to comment. Overall, doctors have written fewer opioid prescriptions in the last ve years, according to the American Medical So ciety. But of the top Medicare providers, 70 percent increased the number of opioid prescriptions they wrote each year from 2013 to 2015. Consider the top three: ist in Missouri, went from writing 23 pre scriptions in 2013 to 7,511 two years later. Lumberton, North Carolina, went from 256 to more than 5,700 prescriptions. Asheville, North Carolina, had a three-fold increase from 1,052 prescriptions to nearly 4,700. Sanders case load during that time near ly doubled. The others had only modest in creases in the number of Medicare patients they treated over those years and they still hold active medical licenses. Each declined comment. There are also two doctors on the Medicare list who didnt write a single opioid prescription in 2013 only to write thousands of prescriptions in each of the following two years. Opioids popular pain drug Dr. Stefan Kertesz, professor and addic tion-opioid safety specialist at the Univer sity of Alabamas Medical School in Bir mingham, cautions there may be a logical reason for the doctors writing more opioid prescriptions: They may be taking on more chronic-pain patients as other doctors leave the opioid-prescribing business. Physicians have gotten the message loud and clear: Be very afraid, said Kertesz. Whoevers willing to see these vulnerable patients is the next target for law enforcement. Dr. Patrick Waring was surprised to see so many of his interventional pain manage ment colleagues among the top prescrib ers. Nearly a fth of all top prescribers listed that as their specialty. The nature of the medicine they prac tice is to treat pain patients without pre scribing opioids, said Waring, who prac tices in Slidell, La. Opioids should not be the rst, sec ond or third options for the treatment of chronic pain, he said. It should be a last resort. Yet among Medicares top 10 highest opioid prescribers, four are interventional pain specialists. Some studies show the path to addic tion for at least half of all heroin users started with a valid prescription for a painkiller. Still, opioids remain a popular drug prescription. In 2015, for example, 130 general prac tice health care providers including nurse practitioners and physician assistants wrote more prescriptions for opioids than all other drugs combined. The same was true for more than two-thirds of the top listed Medicare providers, data shows. Kolodny, the opioid-addiction expert at Brandeis University, said these examples underscore the need for vigilant monitor ing of prescribing habits. We dont have to wait for doctors to harm people, he said. As law enforcement ofcials raced to shut down pill mills in the mid-to-late 2000s, regulators largely ignored inno cent prescribers, said Dr. Kent Harsh barger, the coroner for Ohios Montgom ery County, a hotbed for overdose deaths nationally. Those innocent prescribers were fam ily doctors, nurse practitioners and other health-care professionals who serve as the front door to medical care and who were persuaded opioids were good for treating pain and related ailments. It was assumed the person who over dosed was abusing and doctor shopping, Harshbarger said. We assumed goodfaith prescribing. Now we realize we were wrong. Investigative producer Tom Wright and News Content Specialist Erin Snodgrass contributed to this report. tbbbbbbtbbbbbbb bbbtbbbbbbbbbbb bbfbbbtb fbnbb bbtb btbb b bbbb These examples are a red ag for in appropriate and dangerous medical treat ment, said Andrew Kolodny, co-director of the Opioid Policy Research Collabora tive at Brandeis University. Federal ofcials, for years have been sounding the alarms about the excessive use of opioids. In 2016, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recom mended opioids should be used to miti gate pain from cancer, at the end of life, after a surgery or serious accident, and, in some cases, for severe chronic pain. Yet the top prescribers included no on cologists, and only four emergency medi cine doctors and 15 surgeons.

After the San dy Hook school shooting in 2012, our legislature did not increase safe schools funding. Year after year, the governor asked for increases for safe schools funding, but year after year, our legislators denied his requests. It took the deaths of 17 students and teachers in Florida to get our legislature to increase safe schools funding. I applaud our legislature for passing some common sense gun legislation, but why did it take a tragedy like Parkland to make them realize how foolish our gun laws had become? The sale of bump stocks, like the one used in the Las Ve gas shooting last October, will be prohibited in our state, and there will be a three-day waiting period and a minimum age of 21 to purchase a rie. I think they went a little too far in requiring a minimum age of 21 to purchase a shotgun or bolt-action rie, but try ing to dene and single out assault weapons probably would have delayed the close of the legislative ses sion even further. I am glad the legislature will be spending some where in the neighborhood of $50 million next year to combat the opioid epi demic in our state. It is a shame that our state had to have more overdose deaths than any other state (4,728 in 2016) before our elected leaders could be moved to do something about the problem. It is a sad state of affairs when many people have to die in this state just to get the legislature to do its job. Eric lives in Suwannee County and is a public school educator.

Another way to look at the cost side is that tens of millions of American families are forced to pay a little bit more, maybe $20, for the sugar we use every year. You might wonder how this consumer rip-off sustains itself. After all, the people in the sugar industry are only a tiny percentage of the U.S. population. Heres how it works. It pays for workers and owners in the sugar industry to come up with millions of dollars to lobby congressmen to impose tariffs and quotas on for eign sugar. It means higher prots and higher wages. Also, its easy to organize the relatively small num ber of people in the sugar industry. The costs are borne by tens of millions of Americans forced to pay more for the sugar they use. Even if the people knew what the politicians are doing, it wouldnt be worth the cost of trying to unseat a legislator whose vote cost them $20 a year. Politicians know that they wont bear a cost from sugar consumers. But they would pay a political cost from the sugar industry if they didnt vote for tariffs. So they put it to consumers but what else is new? Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University. To nd out more about Walter E.

During the pursuit, the suspect threw a large dark bag out of the window of the vehicle before stopping the vehicle at the intersec tion of U.S. 27 and County Road 49. According to the report, the suspect attempted to ee the scene on foot, but the deputy was able to catch him. The suspect continued to ght and resist arrest while the deputy attempted to take him into custody, the report states. According to SCSO, the large bag was located and contained approximately 368 grams of methamphet amine and approximately $24,500 in U.S. currency. Byrd was transported to the Suwannee County Jail and charged with tamper ing with evidence, eeing and eluding, battery on law enforcement, resisting ar rest with violence, trafck ing of methamphetamine and theft of law enforce ment equipment. His bond has been set at $85,000. Sheriff Sam St. John said he is relieved that the deputy survived this encounter with only minor injuries, and commends him for his actions in tak ing this large amount of methamphetamine off of the streets of Suwannee County, as well as arrest ing this drug distributor.

Sports SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, 2018 Suwannee walks off with district win against BCHS michael.jones@ganews.com LIVE OAK A new-look defense paid dividends for Suwannee on Friday. The Bulldogs made some outstanding plays in the late innings and had a clutch nal at-bat as Caileigh Crofts walk-off single gave SHS a 5-4 win against Baker County. We changed up a couple things defensively and it really worked out for us, said Suwannee coach Jeff Smith. We had some spectacular catches in the out eld. The offense also got the job done against a tough pitcher in Liz McGovern, who was painting the out side corner most of the night. Skylar Redish (3-3, two RBIs) and Tieraney Hollon (4-4, one RBI) led the way. Redish blasted a two-run homer in the bottom of the rst and Hollon also ripped two doubles. In the end, though, it was a soft blooper from Croft that scored Hollon for the game-winning run. It seems like all year the little bloopers have been dropping for everybody else, Smith said. It was nice to one for us. With Suwannee holding a 3-1 lead in the top of the third, Baker Countys Emma Gipson hit a three-run home run to put the Wildcats ahead 4-3. SHS respond ed in the bottom of the inning with an RBI single from Hollon to tie the game at 4-4. From there, McGovern and SHS pitcher Brandi Da vis started to take over. After the third inning, neither team scored until Crofts two-out single in the seventh inning. Davis was helped out by some nice plays in the outeld, which included a diving catch from Croft in center eld and a diving grab from Carson Frier in left eld. Frier also made a nice catch to end the seventh inning, sprinting back near the wall to deny Kiki Car ter an extra-base hit. Frier was part of the new-look defense implemented by Smith, who said he was looking for more speed in the outeld. Redish, who normally catches, started at shortstop with Selby Blankenship moving behind the plate. If its going to benet the team it needs to be done, Smith said of the defensive moves. Right now, its trying to win a district championship. We had two or three girls that played different positions to help the better of the ball club. And it worked out great.

A big fourth inning and a good all-around perfor mance from Wyatt Morrill helped put an end to that streak. Morrill picked up the win in relief and also got the offense started in the fourth inning as the Bulldogs triumphed 7-3 against the Lafayette Hornets. Morrill threw 4 1-3 hitless innings, striking out ve hitters while allowing one unearned run. In the fourth inning when the Bulldogs scored five runs he started the rally with a single. Suwannee (4-3) coach Justin Bruce spoke after the game about remaining confident and not worry ing about some early-season losses. Baseball is a game of failure, Bruce said. The more you fail, the more you think you have to change. Sometimes its not anything you have to change, just having the confidence in yourself to stick to what youre doing. The team is starting to gel together. The ear ly-season losses is not something were worried about. They see sticking to the plan works. Bruce also liked the effort from Morrill, who shut down a hot Lafayette offense. Wyatt is a big piece of what were trying to do, Bruce said. For him to come in and throw strikes is a big effort to help our team. Lafayette (2-2) took a 2-0 lead after the first in ning behind an RBI double from Caleb Land and Joseph Perrys run-scoring single. The Hornets strung together four straight hits off of freshman starter Ryan LeNeave, but they didnt record a hit after the first inning. LHS threatened in the bottom of the third, put ting runners on first and third after a pair of hitby-pitches. Chi Chi Purcell tried to score from third base on a wild pitch, but he was tagged out on a close play at the plate as catcher Nolan Miller flipped to Morrill. The Hornets had another excellent opportunity in the bottom of the sixth, but Morrill escaped a bas es-loaded jam with a strikeout to end the inning. Miller went 2-4 and drove in two runs. Ronnie Layton had an RBI double for the Bulldogs. UP NEXT: The Bulldogs will play their third game in three days as they host Madison County to night.

By K.A. Taylor TV Media Police procedural dramas are a staple of North American television. Just mentioning the term, or the words Law and Order, immediately transports you to the world of whodunnit (and that catchy theme song). Obsessed and fascinated as we are by the motives behind the deadliest of crimes, the success of this kind of series may seem like a given, but the odds of a show being a hit greatly increase when it includes just the right kind of twist. On Sunday, March 18, CBS introduces the world to a clever, subversive police procedural, when Instinct premieres. Dylan Reinhart (Alan Cumming, The Good Wife) is a quirky, highly intellectual professor and author, currently teaching abnormal behavior while trying to compose his next bestseller. Reinharts inability to complete another stunning work of prose may be due to a lack of inspiration, as hes no longer able to draw on years of experience from his former life working as a CIA operative. That is, however, until a visit from the NYPD to his classroom coaxes him back into the thrill of investigative work. Det. Lizzie Needham (Bojana Novakovic, Shameless) informs Reinhart that his book has been implicated in a murder. The book, a bestseller on criminal theory, is being brought to life by a killer, with clues left behind taken directly from the pages of Reinharts work. Without any motives or additional leads, Needham reaches out to Reinhart for his help, knowing that his unique perspective as author and former CIA operative is her best hope at stopping this mysterious murderer. To better prepare himself for the chase, Reinhart calls on some old friends for assistance from his previous life, including Julian Cousins (Naveen Andrews, Sense8). Utilizing his pool of resources, a mix of fascination and determination to see justice served. The popularity of police procedurals started long before the invention of the television, with novels mid-1800s, the genres popularity rapidly grew postWorld War II, with many of the tales now unfolding on the big screen. Everything changed with Dragnet, a radio play that leaped onto the small screen and then upgraded to the big screen. The show garnered a for the police procedural drama. Instinct pulls from this transitory past, as the story began in the pages of a novel. The series is an adaptation of James Pattersons novel Murder Games, with much of the series content staying true to Pattersons own words. Fans of literary, small-screen and cinematic adaptations of police procedurals are no stranger to Pattersons works, as he is a dominant force in the genre. Notable early hits for the author on the big screen include 1997s Kiss the Girls and 2001s Along Came a Spider, both of which are clear emblems of the police procedural genre. So, where lies the twist? While most would expect that to be found in the killers reveal which it may very well be what makes this latest genre series stand out above the rest is the lead character, Reinhart, who, like his novel counterpart, is a married broadcast of an hour-long series that features a queer lead character, a progressive and timely move by the network. CBS is no stranger to paving the way for cultural and sexual diversity, though, after the recent success of CBS All Accesss Star Trek: Discovery. This opportunity meant so much to Cumming, who admitted to the Hollywood Reporter that it was one of the reasons [he] wanted to do the show. The Scottish-American actor is a longtime LGBTQ2+ activist and advocate, openly bisexual and compassionately proud. The chance to portray Reinharts character, with all of his layers, was both an incredible thing and a terrible thing to Cumming. Given the current political fervor in America a time in America where gay people are being persecuted ... our rights are being removed, as Cumming puts it the actor saw that it was all the more important to have a character with a healthy same-sex marriage on TV. While the politics are clearly present in the writing of Instinct, the series places greater emphasis on its execution of sarcastic wit. Reinhart is a master of words and clever one-liners, always one to note the with an ample dose of observational humor. This plays well alongside Needhams professional drive, as she plays a strong, leading role in the investigation, not afraid to smile but constant in her devotion to the case. The two follow the tradition of unlikely pairings, though it is plain to see they have a chemistry and make a formidable team. The new era of the police procedurals has arrived, amply stacked with drama, laughs and cultural relevance. With a stellar cast and intriguing premise, its easy to see why CBS was quick to transform this recent James Patterson novel into a fully realized, hour-long series. Find out if Reinhart and Needham have the skills needed to uncover this literary-loving killer when Instinct premieres Sunday, March 18, on CBS.
