By MEGAN REEVESmreeves@lakecityreporter.comAfter years of serving both his country and his community, 74-yearold Vern Lloyd’s efforts have been recognized. At a Wednesday awards luncheon held at the Holiday Inn and Suites, the Lake CityColumbia County Chamber of Commerce announced him as the community’s 2015 Citizen of the Year. “I am pleased to be recognized for what I have done,” Lloyd said after receiving the award. “I am very humbled and proud to know that I was chosen from a group of nominees of this caliber.” There were a total of 18 nominees in the running for the award, all of which were suggested to the chamber by others in the community. Nominees were required to be chamber members distinguished for business leadership and have a history of civic and volunteer service. Lloyd, who has been serving the local community with his business and volunteer efforts since his relocation from New York in 1989, was the perfect fit. “He has had a major impact on our community since his arrival,” Mantha Young, 2014 Citizen of the Year said in announcing the honor. “Ask anyone in town and they will tell you that if you are doing any thing in Lake City that involves fundraising and Lake City ReporterTHURSDAY, APRIL 23, 2015 | YOUR COMMUNITY NEWSPAPER SINCE 1874 | $1.00 LAKECITYREPORTER.COM LOCALCCSO honors 3 volunteers, 2A.

Morris called City Hall to pay a bill once she was hung up on, she says. The customer service rep wasn’t being rude. She just thought she was a telemarketer.

The measure (HB 633), sponsored by freshman Rep. Jennifer Sullivan, R-Mount Dora, passed on a vote of 77-41, largely along party lines.

2A THURSDAY, APRIL 23, 2015 DAILY BRIEFING LAKE CITY REPORTER Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 NEW YORKPeople magazine has named Sandra Bullock as the “World’s Most Beautiful Woman” for 2015. The 50-year-old actress, who voices a supervillain in the upcoming movie “Minions,” tops the magazine’s list, announced Wednesday. Commenting on being selected for this year’s cover, Bullock says she just laughed when she heard about the honor. “No, really. I just said, ‘That’s ridiculous,’” she tells the magazine. “I’ve told no one.” Bullock, who won an Oscar for “The Blind Side,” says she’s found beauty in her role as mother to her 5-year-old son, Louis.Dr. Oz: We will not be silencedNEW YORK — Vowing that “we will not be silenced,” television’s Dr. Oz is fighting back against critics who are trying to get him removed from a faculty position at Columbia University. Dr. Mehmet Oz will air an episode of his syndicated talk show on Thursday that specifically takes on the group of 10 doctors from around the country who wrote to a Columbia dean about him. The group suggested last week that Oz promotes “quack treatments” of weight loss supplements with no scientific proof that they work. Oz taped a message previewing his show where he said he knows he has alienated people in “our quest to make America healthy.” But he said freedom of speech is a fundamental right of Americans, and the other doctors are trying to silence him.Tight lid on Bruce Jenner interviewNEW YORK — The first on-air promo for Friday’s broadcast interview with Bruce Jenner didn’t even show his face, an illustration of the line ABC News is walking in trying to drum up interest for the program while saying virtually nothing about it. The two-hour interview special with the 1976 Olympic decathlon champion and estranged patriarch of television’s Kardashian clan is expected to touch on transgenderism and reports that he may be transitioning to a woman. ABC has released only a couple of non-specific quotes by Jenner and is not expected to reveal much more in advance of Friday’s program, preferring to give him the opportunity to address the topic in the full context of the interview. Diane Sawyer has not spoken to outside media about the interview, which was conducted in February — one day in Los Angeles, another in New York. She’s scheduled to promote it on ABC properties Friday: “Good Morning America,” ‘’Live with Kelly and Michael” and “The View.” ABC’s handling of the story so far has been respectful, said Nick Adams, program director of transgender media for GLAAD. “Sharing one’s story is something a person should be allowed to do in their own time and in their own way,” Adams said. Media speculation about a public figure’s gender identity increases harmful scrutiny on other transgender people, he said. 7a 1p 7p 1a 6 a LAKE CITY ALMANA C SUN MOON UV INDEX EXTREME: 10 minutes to burn T oday’s ultra-violet radiation risk for the a r ea on a scale f r om 0 to 10+.

The Senate voted 36-2 for the bill that would keep confidential police videos that are shot inside a house, a health care facility or any place that a “reasonable person would expect to be private.” Supporters of the measure contend it would encourage police agencies to have their police officers use body cameras. They also said it would guarantee the privacy rights of those caught on video. The First Amendment Foundation, which advocates for open records, is opposed to the bill (SB 248). Florida is one of several states considering limits on access to body camera videos at the same time there is a push to require police to have the cameras.Bill passes to let children secretly record rapistsTALLAHASSEE — A bill passed by the Florida Senate would let children who are victims or potential victims of rape and other violent acts secretly record their attackers. The Senate unanimously approved the bill on Wednesday. It applies to victims who are under the age of 18. The law generally prohibits conversations to be recorded or otherwise intercepted without the consent of both parties. The bill was filed after the Supreme Court ordered a new trial for an ice cream truck driver convicted of raping his teenage stepdaughter over a period of years. The girl twice secretly recorded him talking about the assaults with an MP3 player hidden under her shirt. The court said the recordings shouldn’t have been used as evidence. The bill now goes to Gov. Rick Scott.After decades as fugitive, ailing man turns self inFRANKFORT — Frail and tired of leading a secret life for four decades, 66-year-old Clarence David Moore called police this week to surrender. The deputy who answered thought it was a prank. It wasn’t. Moore escaped from police custody three times during the 1970s and eventually settled into a quiet life, living in Kentucky since at least 2009. His health is poor from a stroke and he has difficulty speaking. Without a legitimate ID or Social Security number, he had apparently struggled to get medical care. When Franklin County Sheriff Pat Melton showed up at Moore’s house to make the “arrest,” Moore was in a hospital bed. He broke down in tears. “He looks like he’s almost 90,” the sheriff said. A woman who had been living with Moore had no idea of his past. “She was just blown away when all this happened,” the sheriff said. Scripture of the Day If you look at Earth from space you see a dot, that’s here. That’s home. That’s us. It underscores the responsibility to deal more kindly and compassionately with one another and to preserve and cherish that pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known. — Carl Sagan “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead.” — Romans 1:20 See an error?

COURTESYCrime Scene Unit volunteers awardedColumbia County Sheriff Mark Hunter (third from left) gave three members of the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office Citizen Service Unit commendations Monday for their exceptional work with the agency’s Crime Scene Unit. Jason Massey (from left), Ronnie Ash and James Grimes are civilian volunteers that have received specialized training and work alongside the Crime Scene Detective processing crime scenes. In June, the Crime Scene Unit was called out to a burglary at a local school. After eight hours of processing the scene and collecting evidence, the suspect was identified. ‘This is just one example of the many crime scenes these men have assisted on, rivaling the results of full-time paid forensic technicians,’ Hunter said. ‘I am extremely proud of all the CCSO volunteers and especially these men.

Morris said an employee at City Hall thought the relay system was saying “IT” instead of “IP,” and transferred her to the wrong department several times before she was disconnected. “There are people in this community that are hearing impaired, I’m certainly not the only one,” Morris said. “There are people who are speech impaired or may have cerebral palsy or autism and would use a relay system. So there are people in this community that can’t respond to their name being called or the telephone ringing, and they use different methods of communication.” But Tuesday she met with City Manager Wendell Johnson, and things may soon be different. Johnson, whose family has been touched by hearing loss, asked Morris to conduct training sessions to teach city communications staff the right way to communicate with the deaf. “I have a brother who is deaf and two grandchildren who are hearing impaired,” Johnson said. “I’m probably more familiar with that than the average person.” Johnson sat down with Morris as she presented the issues, he said. They came to an agreement that Morris, who is certified in deaf education, would hold training sessions to teach customer service employees, communications officers in dispatch and others the appropriate way to communicate with those who may have a hearing problem. “I quickly realized that we need to have an understanding with our hearing-impaired residents,” Johnson said. “I’m very pleased that she’s offered her assistance. She’s extraordinarily advanced in her ability to communicate, and we’re very pleased that she’s willing to help.” Morris, who didn’t begin to lose her hearing until the age of 14, speaks clearly, and people don’t at first realize she’s deaf, she said. Although hearing impairment is not always a visible disability, it should be recognized and treated appropriately, she said. And while things should soon be better at City Hall, Morris routinely faces other challenges around town, including at fast food restaurants. Not long ago, Morris entered one eatery and jotted down her order. She also wrote “Deaf” at the top of the ticket, to let them know she wouldn’t be able to hear if they called out her order when ready. She stood there in disbelief as several employees, finally including the manager, yelled out that the order for “Deaf” was ready. “By the time it got to the manager, the manager was pretty annoyed that ‘Deaf’ was not coming to get her dinner,” she said. CALLSContinued From 1A‘I quickly realized that we need to have an understanding with our hearing-impaired residents, ... I’m very pleased that she’s oered her assistance. She’s extraordinarily advanced in her ability to communicate, and we’re very pleased that she’s willing to help.’— Wendell Johnson, city manager NAACP to engage with members of the community and receive feedback from them, as well as to let local citizens know that the group is still an active presence in the community. Adams is hoping for a large turnout, explaining that the banquet was open to everyone, and encouraged citizens to come out and attend. “We want to extend this invitation out to everyone,” said Adams. Adams said there will be catered food, as well as a speech from former Columbia County School Board member Linard Johnson. “I’m extremely excited about being the speaker,” Johnson said. “I didn’t expect to be asked, and when I was asked, I immediately said yes.” Johnson, who teaches middle school in Suwannee County, has had a long history with the banquet, having been a master of ceremonies for the event several times. He said he plans to talk about modern views on America and current social issues, as well as the roles Americans play in them. He said he will talk about how social conflict needs to be answered peacefully. BANQUETContinued From 1A By NICK ROLLISONSpecial to the ReporterA Lake City woman was arrested Tuesday for fraudulently cashing checks at a local bank, according to a Lake City Police Department arrest report. Lauryn Ashleigh Jones, 26, of 1214 SW Castle Heights Terrace, was arrested Tuesday at 3:22 p.m. on charges of giving a false name, as well as two counts of fraud, the report says. She was booked into the Columbia County Detention Center and was still in jail at press time on $32,000 bond. On Tuesday, an officer responded to TD Bank at 2944 W US 90 in reference to an individual cashing a fraudulent check, the report says. An employee told the officer that a woman, who would later be identified as Jones, had just cashed a check with a Florida driver's license, the photo on which did not match her likeness. The employee told the officer that Jones tried to cash two more checks and open an account with TD Bank, which made the employee suspicious that the checks were fraudulent and led her to call authorities. Contact was made with Jones outside of the bank, the report says. Jones was unable to provide any identification and allegedly gave a false name to the officer. On her second attempt to cash a check, Jones did not give the same name as the first time and also gave a birth date that did not match the one stated on the license, the report says. According to the report, Jones started to act nervous, becoming twitchy and taking longer to answer the officer's questions. Finally, Jones broke down and started to cry, telling the officer her real name and confirming her Social Security number. Jones told the officer she had found the driver's license and checks, but could not give an exact address as to where she found them, only saying they were found at a drug dealer's house in Five Points. The stolen money was returned to the bank and the employee provided the officer with the two checks that Jones had attempted to cash and a copy of the one that she successfully did, the report says.Cops: Woman cashed fake checks Jones Submit your design for Breast Cancer Awareness contestFrom staff reportsColumbia County Fire Rescue is teaming up with Suwannee River Breast Cancer Awareness Association to raise funds and awareness for local citizens during the 2015 Breast Cancer Awareness month.

The deadline for original t-shirt design entries is Friday, May 1.dure --it is a life,” said Rep. Jimmie Smith, R-Inverness. “Representative Sullivan, the greatest consequence of your bill is a beautiful baby.” But House Minority Leader Mark Pafford, D-West Palm Beach, called the bill “an example of government intrusion.” “This is not a reflection period --this is a 24-hour ban,” Pafford said. The bill would add the 24-hour waiting period to the conditions for informed consent before women can end pregnancies. The full Senate on Thursday is expected to take up an identical measure (SB 724). Sullivan said her bill would “empower” women by giving them more time to reflect before making such decisions. “I am here today as an advocate for those women who are being pressured,” she said Wednesday. Elected last year at age 23, Sullivan has said she’s witnessed pressure placed upon women by their loved ones --especially a spouse or a boyfriend --to make a hasty decision about having abortions. “I care about the women who have sat in my office,” she said. “I care about the women who have cried in committee.” But House Democrats contended that the bill was just another barrier to safe, legal abortion in Florida. “Little by little, this state is whittling away at this right,” said Rep. Janet Cruz, D-Tampa. “Not only does this bill not empower women, I believe it takes our power away,” Rep. Cynthia Stafford, D-Miami, said. “If I have to wait, you’ve taken my power away from me for a decision I’ve already made --as if I can’t make decisions on my own, in my own time.” The bill’s supporters, however, said abortion should require a waiting period for the same reasons that other medical procedures are delayed. “Abortion is the outlier,” said Rep. Cary Pigman, an Avon Park Republican who is a physician. “No other elective, significant, surgical procedure is ever done on the same day as the initial consultation whether it’s having your knee repaired, your gall bladder taken out or your buttocks improved. People change their minds. They do it all the time.” Applause followed many of the speeches supporting the bill, intimations of the vote to come. Democrats already had tried to amend the bill to alleviate what they called a hardship to poor women, for whom two trips to abortion clinics in other counties would represent additional costs and, in many cases, extra time off from work and family obligations. Sullivan rejected proposals to allow women to consult with doctors online or to have nurses explain the procedure on the first visit. On Tuesday, however, Sullivan accepted an amendment by Rep. Rene Plasencia, R-Orlando, to include exceptions for women who are victims of rape, incest, domestic violence or human trafficking. Those exceptions could be granted only if women have police reports, restraining orders, medical records or other documentation to show why they should not have to make two trips to have abortions. But Rep. Victor Torres, D-Orlando, said that as “a retired cop,” he knew well that most victims do not report such crimes. “A woman is violated by a family member --incest, domestic violence --do you think she’s going to run to the police and report it?” Torres asked. “We see what women suffer. They don’t tell anyone.” ABORTIONContinued From 1A From staff reportsHospice of Citrus and the Nature Coast has opportunities for volunteers in the Lake City and Live Oak areas.

Both of us.” Lloyd agreed and said that he and his wife really just like to keep busy and be productive. “I believe in various charities and I believe in working to help those charities,” he said. From 2007-2014, Lloyd and his wife co-chaired the March of Dimes Signature Chef’s Auction, which has raised about $700,000 in the past 10 years. He has also managed the logis tics of the local March of Dimes walk for the last 10 years, including the most recent event this month. For the last 20 years, Lloyd has worked closely with United Way of Suwannee Valley, serving on various committees and working on several fundraising campaigns. He and Maureen have been named lifetime members of the organization’s board of directors. Lloyd also served on the American Cancer Society’s Cattle Baron’s Ball Committee from 2003-2011, during which more than $600,000 was raised for the organization. He continues to serve on the Relay for Life Committee, as he has done since 2012. The American Cancer Society, the March of Dimes and United Way were named as the charities closest to Lloyd’s heart, but he has served many more as well.Businesses of the YearThe chamber also named the 2015 businesses of the year in both the small and large categories. Each category had three nominees which were also selected from a group of suggestions by their fellow chamber members. Nominees for the large business category were Clay Electric Cooperative, Inc., Haeco and PotashCorp-White Springs, which won. PotashCorp-White Springs Manager of Public Affairs Mike Williams called the award a “distinguished honor” for the company. “The award is accepted on behalf of our entire staff of 490 dedicated employees,” he said. “There was a lot of people involved and a lot of competition, which shows what a great community and chamber we have.” For the small business category, which is for those businesses with 10 or less employees, the nominees included the North Central Florida Advertiser, Chasteen’s Downtown restaurant and the winner, GulfCoast Financial Services, Inc. GolfCoast President John Kuykendall said he was absolutely surprised by the award. “We felt sure with the competition that one of the other two nominees would win it,” he said. “We were totally shocked and really happy to be selected. We appreciate the chamber and everyone who voted for us.” AWARDContinued From 1A Photos by MEGAN REEVES/Lake City ReporterPotashCorp-White Springs won the award for 2015 Big Business of the Year.

Contact Jordan Kroeger or Eric Jackson 754-0421 754-0420 By ERIC JACKSON Michael Kirkman’s hiatus from work ended sooner than expected. The 28-year old lefty signed an one-year minor league deal Friday with the Milwaukee Brewers orga nization. Kirkman was released by the Texas Rangers at the end of spring training last month after 11 years with the club. “It was exciting,” Kirkman said of signing. “I’m ready for action.

Kirkman’s day-to-day workouts at his alma mater Columbia High are on hold for now. He has been summoned to Phoenix — where his quest back to the majors begins. The Lake City native arrived Monday and will continue to rehabilitate in Phoenix for two weeks before heading to Colorado Springs for his Triple-A assignment. Kirkman, who enters a new phase of his career, is stoked to be tagged a starter for his new team, Sky Sox. “Hopefully I can bring some consistency and hard work,” Kirkman said. “My plan is to go back to the big leagues this year.” He is more than confi dent he can return to the baseball’s biggest stage.

Florida State issued a statement Wednesday saying it will investigate Winston’s comments aired on ESPN that the ex-Seminoles quarterback believed he had an under-standing with an unidenti-fied grocery store employ-ee that led to last year’s shoplifting incident. Athletic director Stan Wilcox said in the state-ment that Winston’s com-ments were new details to the school. “As is the case with all matters of this type, we will work in partnership with the NCAA to deter-mine whether a violation occurred,” Wilcox said. Speaking earlier during an Atlantic Coast Conference coaches tele-conference, Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher said Winston’s comments are likely true but added it appears to be “totally an isolated incident.” “If he says it is (true), I guess it is,” said Fisher, who said FSU’s compli-ance office contacted the store after Winston’s cita-tion in April 2014 and again Wednesday. A spokeswoman with the grocery store chain had a much different take on the quarterback’s comments than Fisher did, saying it would wel-come a conversation with Winston. “At the end of the investigation, we were confident that our policies were being executed by the store man-agement team, and that we are not in the practice of giving away merchan-dize to FSU athletes or any other customers,” Maria Brous, director of media and community relations for Florida-based Publix said in an emailed state-ment. “If Mr. Winston has new information that he would like to share with Publix, that is pertinent to this inci-dent, we would ask that he contact us directly. We would take appropriate action, including reopening an investigation.” FSU will review Jameis Winston’s comments about free-food caper


Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER ADVICE & COMICS THURSDAY, APRIL 23, 2015 3B DEAR ABBY: My son, “Rick,” and daughter-in-law, “Amy,” seem to really dislike me. I try to be kind and not pry, but they live with me and it can make for a full house. They have had job difficulties and work injuries that brought them back to my home. Her parents don’t care for my son, so living there was not an option. Amy does not help at all with the housework. Rick does most of it. They also have a wonderful 21-month-old boy. A sec ond baby is on the way. They have lived with me for four years now. Abby, Amy shows no respect for my home or for me. I mostly keep quiet so as to not push away my only son. I want to be part of my grandson’s life. Please advise me on handling this matter. — UNDERVALUED OUT WEST DEAR UNDERVALUED: By allowing your son and daughter-in-law to live with you for such an extended period of time, you have fostered their dependence on you. That may be why your daughter-in-law is resentful rather than grate ful for your generosity in giving them a roof over their heads. That they would con ceive a second child under these circumstances — without jobs and no place of their own — tells me they are immature and irresponsible. Give them a date to be out — say one month — and stick to it. If they want to know why, tell them the truth. You should not have to live in a house with a daughter-in-law who treats you like the enemy because it is not healthy for any of you. If you are afraid the only way to have a relationship with your grandchildren is to tolerate being used, I think you are mistaken. As long as you can pro vide material assistance to these two, they’ll keep you around. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married for almost 31 years. We have had a good marriage, but for the last couple of years, my hus band has told me that I snore when we go to sleep at night. He is a very light sleep er, and understandably, it wakes him and then he wakes me to make me stop. This goes on all night long. Needless to say, nei ther of us is happy in the morning. We have now started sleeping in sepa rate rooms. The issue I am having now is, my husband will be retiring in a few months and he wants us to do a lot of traveling, mainly cruising. I’m not sure how this will work with our new sleeping arrangement. — SLEEPY IN ALABAMA DEAR SLEEPY: Have you discussed your snor ing with your physician? Snoring can be a symptom of a medical problem that’s fixable. When your hus band first told you about it, you should have men tioned it to your doctor. Ear plugs might help your husband, but if there is a medical solution for your snoring, it would make your problem moot. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Emotional matters will escalate if you are inconsistent or unpredictable. Try to keep an even, peaceful temper ament to avoid an adverse response. Put more effort into activities that chal lenge you mentally and physically. ++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Be careful not to let your entertain ing and social mood lead to costly adventures. Pleasure trips will enhance love and romance, but also put you in debt. Good opportunities will arise through communication and patience. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Look for new ways to use your talents. Opportunities are apparent if you are willing to explore new avenues. Believe in your potential. A change at home will bring you greater freedom to do the things you enjoy. Love will take a serious turn. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t let moodiness ruin your day. Let go of regrets and don’t hold grudges. Do what you can to help others, and learn from whatever experience you gain and information you are given. Positive, progressive action will bring stellar results. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Keep your intentions and professional strat egy a secret from your colleagues. If you let too many people in on what you are doing, you will face stiff competition. Hone your skills, gain knowledge and prepare to forge ahead with your plans. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You have plenty to contribute, so don’t hold back. Share your wisdom and make suggestions. Thoughts followed by actions will lead to your success and encourage unexpected and unusu al partnerships. Don’t hesitate; make your way to where the action is. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Problems due to an emotional incident will leave you feeling like you need a change. Do some thing that makes you feel good about yourself per sonally and professionally. Romance is on the rise, along with greater security and stability. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You will have a greater interest in cultural differences and traditions. Check out your family tree or plan a visit to re-establish family ties. Let your intuition lead the way in helping you explore new possibilities and lifestyles. Speak from the heart. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Live, learn and prepare to make changes that will improve your life. A new residence or rearranging your fur niture to make room for a new pursuit will lead to good fortune. Open your heart to someone special. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Live a little. Invite friends or colleagues to enjoy a little downtime with you. Turn your home into a place where you can relax and discuss future plans. Much can be accom plished if you use empathy, understanding and com passion to get your way. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Make per sonal changes that won’t affect anyone but you, and you will avoid an argument or interference. Someone will blow situations out of proportion if given the chance. Keep your thoughts and plans private for the time being. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Get ready to have some fun. Reconnect with old friends, share your ideas and look at your options concerning your professional position and the opportunities that exist. A positive change to the way you live will boost your morale. +++++ Abigail Van THE LAST WORD Eugenia Last Resentment is the thanks mom gets for helping her son’s family Q Write Dear Abby at or P.O.

6B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS THURSDAY, APRIL 23, 2015 By BRANDON LARRABEESpecial to the ReporterTALLAHASSEE— Legislation that would overhaul the Florida High School Athletic Association easily passed the state House on Wednesday, send-ing the proposal toward an uncertain future in the Senate. A handful of Democrats joined Republicans to pass the measure (HB 7137) in an 86-29 vote. The proposal would overhaul the organization’s gov-ernance, setting up a 16-member board to oversee the association. It would also require a third-party review for students sus-pected of being ineligible and allow students to con-tinue to play while their eli-gibility is reviewed, though games could be forfeited if a student is later ruled ineligible. High schools would also be allowed to join the asso-ciation for some sports, but not in others --particularly football. And students, par-ticularly those at small, pri-vate schools, would have more opportunities to par-ticipate in sports. However, lawmakers dropped perhaps the mostcontroversial provision in the bill, which would have required the educa-tion commissioner and the State Board of Education to make a decision in 2017 about whether to keep the association or replace it. Rep. Manny Diaz Jr., the Hialeah Republican who pushed the bill through the House, said the provision was meant to keep an eye on the association while the changes were made. He suggested to reporters that there were other ways to do that. “We meet every year, we have session every year, so we can readdress this issue at any time,” Diaz said. “And I think it’s our duty to (do so), because they’re given a statutory monopoly basically, and so we have to review to make sure that they’re doing what they’re supposed to do.” The bill is the latest chapter in a long-running dispute between lawmak-ers, particularly those in the House, and the asso-ciation. Like the NCAA, the organization’s attempts to enforce rules sometimes anger those affected by its decisions. Lawmakers who backed the legislation said the bill was helped along by the association’s attitude. “I did not see a cooperative spirit that said, ‘You’ve pointed out some good things, let me run back and implement them,’ “ said House Education Chairwoman Marlene O’Toole, R-Lady Lake. “We saw none of that. Should we have had that, we might not have needed a bill.” Opponents of the legislation said that it could lead to the organization being less vigilant about students being recruited to switch high schools for athletic reasons, though that is technically illegal and would remain so under the bill. Rep. Kevin Rader, DDelray Beach, said that only 11 disputes went to the association recently, out of more than 250,000 athletes, and roughly half were decided in favor of the student. Three of the cases, he said, were caused by academic requirements. “We are trying to change the state of Florida law on a non-profit organization that takes no money from the state for basically less than a handful of kids,” Rader said. But the bill could run into trouble in the Senate. After the upper chamber’s version of the legislation stalled, it was attached Tuesday to an omnibus education bill (SB 948) during a meeting of the Senate Appropriations Committee. However, so-called legislative “trains” sometimes have difficult passing because of their complexity. New legislation for FHSAA State Board of Education to make decision in 2017.

Sudden Death By ERIC JACKSONejackson@lakecityreporter.comAfter a five-hour drive to Pensacola today, the Lady Tigers should come out with loads of energy and they’ll need every ounce of it. Milton (8-9) hosts Columbia (15-9) tonight in a 6A regional quarterfinal playoff matchup. The change of scenery shouldn’t faze the Lady Tigers much — who’ve played better away from home — holding a 10-1 record on the road. CHS plans to take the field as if it was an ordinary game, not considering that this may be its last game of the year. “I don’t think they go into it with a do or die mentali-ty,” CHS head coach Trudy Andrews said. “(They) just want to win and they know how to win. They play hard every game and play every one like a championship game.” CHS stares down a long road back to the state championship game but a victory tonight may give them the spark they need — before pos-sibly rematching Oakleaf in next week’s semifinal round. The Lady Tigers are a week removed from their district tournament loss to Oakleaf and have used the extra practice days to iron wrinkles in their game plan. A few more days has also brought time for ace Ivorie Maltby to return to game day form. Maltby has missed the last five games, recovering from toe sur-gery. Maltby’s status for Thursday remains “hope-ful”. If the sophomore slinger can return for her playoff debut, it will give the Lady Tigers a stronger chance to advance to the semifi-nals for a third straight season. “Hopefully she’ll be okay,” Andrew said. “She’s feeling good. We just got to look at her tomorrow again and see.” Alaina Perry or L.A. Ronosonet will start if Maltby is unable to go. “We’re going to have all our weapons locked and loaded, ready to go,” Andrews added. ERIC JACKSON/ Lake City ReporterHome sweet homeColumbia third baseman Tyler Myrick settles in at the pl ate against Middleburg Tuesday. The Tigers host the winner of Wednesday’s semifinal betwe en Oakleaf and Gainesville in tonight’s district tournament final. CHS faces Milton on the road in regional TXDUWHU¿QDOVWRQLJKWfourth that prevented the senior from throwing a perfect game. Willis hit Landon Williams and walked Austin Sutton to lead off the inning before things turned back in his favor. He struck out the next two batters and got some help from his catcher Trace Wilkinson, who caught Sutton leaning too far off first base and threw him out in a rundown between first and second. From then on Willis acted as if it never hap-pened, settling right back in despite the pressure of the no-hit bid increasing with each successive out. “It’s always in the back of your mind but you try to tell it to get out of your head and let’s get out there and throw, so that’s what I was trying to do all day,” Willis said. P.K. Yonge’s hitters looked lost throughout the game, repeatedly failing to get ahold of Willis’s fastball and curveball and rarely got the ball even out of the infield. It was Willis’s first career high school no-hit-ter in Fort White’s biggest game of the season. “He’s a gamer. It’s his third year on varsity base-ball so you want a guy that’s been through the wars before so when it gets to [crunch] time he’s the right guy for you,” Fort White coach Rick Julius said. Willis gave himself some run support right away in the first inning with a sacrifice fly that drove in Willie Carter to give the Indians a quick 1-0 lead. The rest of Fort White’s runs came on an RBI groundout by Corey Pentolino in the third and an RBI double by Austin Dupree in the sixth. The Indians could have scored a lot more but left 10 runners on base. They had runners in scor-ing position every inning, including the bases loaded twice, but couldn’t string together a lot of hits in a row off of P.K. Yonge pitcher Clay Sanders. Luckily, Fort White had Willis on the mound. “They pressed a little bit and they got them-selves out but [Sanders] did a heck of a job keep-ing us off balance and kept [P.K. Yonge] in the ball game,” Julius said. “Luckily Rhett was on tonight and was able to shut them down.” The Indians can now breathe a little easier knowing they’ve already punched their ticket to the regional playoffs but don’t mention that to Willis just yet. He wants a district championship. “We’re going to take it one game at a time,” Willis said. “[Tonight] is our big-gest game because it’s our next one, so that’s the only one we need to worry about.” NO-HITTER Continued From Page 1B
