Upon arrival, Dep uty Sheriff Diamond Lewis indicated he could smell the odor of cannabis inside the office. Deputy Lewis was briefed by school officials, who related to him they received a tip about Shaquille Brown, a student, sell ing cannabis at the school. The tipster fur ther allowed that the drugs were concealed inside of a large Ari zona brand sweet tea can. A subsequent search of Brown revealed that he was in possession of the can described by the tipster. The can contained 16 small bags of cannabis, con cealed within a hidden compartment. Brown was subse quently arrested for possession of can nabis, with intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia. His bond was set at $1508.00.The second fund raiser for William BJ Laurie held this past Saturday at Merrill Hancock & Turner Insurance in Palatka was a success.

Upon arrival, deputies were met by a hysterical female who indicated Jerry Hibbard was in the home, try ing to kill her fatherin-law, Joseph Leon ard. The female told deputies that Joseph and Jerry were fighting in the bathroom with a knife. Deputies entered the residence and imme diately heard an obvi ous altercation. Once at the bathroom door, deputies observed Jerry standing over Joseph with a large butcher knife and a wooden cane. Deputies observed Jerry attempting to stab Joseph with the knife and trying to choke Joseph with a hand around his neck. Deputies gave Joseph orders to drop the knife, however; he failed to comply ini tially. Deputies again ordered him to drop the knife, Jerry relaxed his grip and Joseph grabbed the knife from him, attempting to stab Jerry. According to the re port, the bathroom walls and floor were covered in blood as a result of the stabbing and struggle. In vestigation revealed that Jerry entered the home without permission and confronted Joseph. The cause of the confrontation is un known; however there was some indication of longstanding animos ity between the two men. Jerry was arrested on charges of bur glary and attempted first degree murder. Jerry Hibbard Man Charged With Attempted Murder Student Arrested For Possession Shaquille Brown Tea can used by student to conceal 16 bags of can nabis.A Florida-based cor poration, EarthNC, through their conservation venture Conserve. IO, has teamed up with Save the Manatee Club to help boaters reduce the chance of hitting and harming manatees in Florida waterways, with the free Mana tee Alert App. This smart phone-based map displays instructive visual alerts, no tifying boaters when they are approaching manatee speed zones. It also helps facilitate the reporting of injured manatees and manatee harassment to the proper authorities to ensure urgent help where needed. The new Manatee Alert App is a good example of how smart phone technology can help the public become better informed, help protect an endangered species, and contribute to preserving our environment, says Brad Winney of Con serve.IO. With the majority of the pub lic now having some form of smart phone or tablet, applications like Manatee Alert can provide safety and conservation messages in real-time. During the busy La bor Day weekend and throughout the year, manatees are espe cially vulnerable to the heavy boat traffic moving through the waterways in every direction. Floridas manatees have already suffered a catastrophic year due to a prolonged red tide event in southwest Florida and an unknown toxin in the Indian River Lagoon. There have been 717 manatee deaths from all causes so far through August 9, which is higher than any previous years total mortality, with exception of the cold stress mortali ty event in 2010. At the current rate, the mortality for 2013 will likely break all previ ous yearly mortality records since record keeping began. In addition to these complex events, boat collisions continue to pose a serious longterm threat to the manatee population. Since many mana tees inhabiting Florida waters bear the scars from past encounters with boats, use of the Manatee Alert App can go a long way towards preventing such inju ries and deaths, says Dr. Katie Tripp, Save the Manatee Clubs Di rector of Science and Conservation. Tripp is excited about the new apps ability to help boaters help manatees. People from all over the world vacation in Florida and many recreate on Florida waters. Public awareness and education to reach residents and visiting boaters are essential keys to manatee pro tection. The Florida boating community is encour aged to get the free Manatee Alert App as well as Save the Manatee Clubs free public awareness materials to help prevent mana tee injuries, suffering, and death. Waterproof boating banners, dock signs for Florida shore line property owners, boating decals, and waterway cards con taining safe boating information, are available by contacting Save the Manatee Club via e-mail at educa tion@savethemanatee. org, by regular mail at 500 N. Maitland Ave., Maitland, FL 32751, or by calling toll free at 1-800-432-JOIN (5646). Manatee pro tection tips for boaters can also be found on the Clubs website at http://www.savethem anatee.org/boatertips. htm.

My buddy lived in another Florida town and went to high school there. I lived in Orlando. My pal had a girlfriend and he was taking her to his prom. He wanted me to get a date and double with him and his date. Since I attended Boone High in Orlando, I wasnt eligible to attend my friends prom unless I took a girl from his school. My buddys Mom knew of a girl who needed a prom date and arranged for her Dad to call me. The father called me and immediately swore me to silence. He offered to pay all of the prom expenses I would encounter (tux rental, corsage, gas and etc) if I would ask his daughter to go to the prom with me. I already knew of the girl and had met her at the beach we all frequented. She was a nice girl. She was not, however, a pretty girl! I understood why her Dad was involved and I sure didnt want to hurt her feelings. Furthermore, very few kids at that school even knew who I was. I told her father that I would be glad to take his daughter to her prom. I knew that doubling with my buddy and his girl would be fun. So, arrangements were made and I asked the girl via phone to accompany me. She was thrilled AND I made sure that she never knew of her Dads involvement. The only time (prior to picking the girl up for the prom) that I had ever seen her was at the beach. She was always wearing a bathing suit. Being only an acquaintance, I had never really paid much attention to her. I was really in for a surprise when I picked her up at her house. While her Mom took pictures of us, her Dad discretely pressed a couple of large bills into my palm when we shook hands. The girl had on the ugliest prom gown I had ever seen. It was much too tight and overly revealing. Her make-up looked like it had been applied with a trowel. Her hair was pulled atop her head in a beehive fashion. She really looked like a clown! I realized immediately that I was really earning her Dads money. The poor thing had gone to a lot of trouble and expense to make herself look truly hideous. I figured that I could handle things but it wasnt easy. The girl turned out to be anything BUT nice! Evidently, she thought that I had a secret crush on her. She was all over me and it was embarrassing. The fact that after she applied her lipstick it would get on the tip of her nose when she smiled was very off-setting. I was young and had never heard of the term date rape, little did I know that I was almost a victim! About the only good thing that I can say about that entire experience is this; I really looked fine in those photos her Mom took. Nothing makes a young man in a tux look better than standing next to a clown with lipstick on the tip of her nose. Frankly, her Dad got a real bargain, he owes me!Lipstick on Her NoseLloyd Harris Local crime hot spots will be listed here weekly.

Dear Editor: In last weeks Opinion, Lloyd Harris presents some suggestions on how Crescent City could cut down expenses. Then he goes on to one of our favorite topics around here: our incredibly expensive water and how that came about. Looking closely at the $82.81 bill, it is not that the water is expensive per unit; it is that the minimum charge is set at that high rate. That has the additional effect of discouraging water conservation; if Im go ing to pay $82.81 regardless, why not let the faucet run? That rate doesnt hurt everyone equally, if you have a huge lawn and use lots of water, you are getting by cheaply. Angela Tischler Crescent CitySpring cleaning, sec ond time around. Kenneth Beery Fruitland Really? You really need to ask?! Gene Hendricksen Gainesville Letters to the Editor Balancing a Shrinking Budget Dear Editor: Our local high school needs your support and whether you were of the athletic or academic mindset during your time there, it does not matter. Our school is fielding an outstanding football TEAM and they need, deserve and should have the support of our alumni. Coach Al Smith came on board a little over a year ago and he has brought a group of individual players together and transformed them from separate people looking out for themselves to an honest and thriving TEAM. This past Friday night, our Class 1A team took on Pine Ridge, a Class 6A team and outplayed, outscored and outclassed them. Our gentlemen gained 328 yards on the ground; Pine Ridge had a negative five yards. These young men are both impressive and inspiring. Ten of the gentlemen who played as seniors last year are now enrolled in college; two are in Division I schools and will be playing on Saturdays beginning next week. These young men are excelling both on the field and in the classrooms and we, as former students and graduates of our local high school need to step up, step out and show up on Friday nights to support this new generation of future leaders. The season opener is being played in Winter Park this coming Friday, but on September 6, our team will host Matanzas at 7 p.m. in Wiltcher Stadium. Parking is free and admission is only $5; lets show our team that they have support from the older generation! Susan Neal Roberts Class of 1972An Open Letter to All Local High School AlumniDear Editor: I am happy to see the Crescent City Police Department, under the ca pable guidance of Chief Johnson, addressing the occupation of Lake Stellas Park The dozen or so, unemployed, twenty something year olds who park themselves at the picnic tables, from noon until sunset, at which time they are told to leave, clearly make this lovely park an undesirable destination for true park lovers. Thank you C.C.P.D. for your good, courageous and responsible work. In response to Lloyds suggestion that the Sheriff take over crime fighting in Crescent City, the notion has been raised before and the general vibe was, correct me if Im wrong, We wouldnt touch Crescent City with a ten foot pole.

Dont broadcast your plans, but do let your neighbors and local law enforcement know. Give a spare key to your neighbors and give them an emergency telephone number to reach you. Arrange to have your mail and newspapers either stopped or picked up daily. Have someone mow your yard or rake the leaves so your house looks lived-in. Use automatic timers to turn on a radio and lights at different intervals to hide the fact that you arent home. Turn down the ringer on the telephone. An unanswered telephone is a dead giveaway. Be sure you dont announce your absence on your answering ma- chine message. Leave your blinds like you normally would if you were home. Only close them all the way if that is what you would normally do. Be sure to close and lock the garage, as well as any storage sheds, gates, etc. Engrave all your valuables with your drivers license number. If possible, videotape the contents of your home. Be sure to keep the video and the list of valuables in a safety deposit box. Ask your neighbor to occasionally park in your driveway. If you are leaving a vehicle parked outside, have the neighbor move it periodically so it looks as though you are home. Be sure someone knows your itinerary and your estimated time of arrival and return. If you get lost while travelling, ask directions of local law enforcement, not complete strangers.

The show will run one night only and it may take some time to find another opportunity to see Prestage as he has a busy touring schedule. Prestage grew up in south Florida listening to blues. He was turned on to a particular finger picking style by a family friend that played old-time banjo music. Later, as a street performer on world famous Beale Street in Memphis, Prestage added foot drums to his guitar and vocals to attract more attention, and found that it strengthened his music a great deal. It would get folks dancing in the street. From here, Prestage has added the use of other instruments, including the harmonica, resonator guitar, and others. Moving on from street performer, Prestage has one many awards for both his originality and talent, taking him on the road around the country and to Europe. The Arts Councils Larimer concerts are supported in part by memberships, the Putnam County Tourist Development Council, the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture. Accommodations for the performer have been provided by the Quality Inn of Palatka.

If you have results from Bass Tournaments held in the State of Florida please forward them to firstname.lastname@example.org to be included in the report.The Kings Bass ReportSpecial to theCourier Journal On Monday, August 12, Lake Lodge #72 had another Entered Apprentice Degree for David Corwin, Waylon Mast and Daniel Fisk. The Entered Apprentice is the first of the three degrees in Freemasonry. These new Brothers will be required to memorize a Catechism during the next month and then recite in an open Lodge before all those in attendance. Their proficiency in the recitation will determine their ability to go on to the Fellowcraft Degree, where yet another Catechism must also be learned. Although there are only three Degrees in Freemasonry; Entered Apprentice, Fellowcraft and Master Mason, other degrees may be learned in either the York Rite or Scottish Rite Degrees. The York Rite is the application and rituals of the Knights Templars who fought during the Crusades to maintain the ownership of Jerusalem. The Scottish Rite is the application and rituals that came from Scotland and France that dealt with the freedom and liberty of all men. Those in the Scottish Rite are best known as the Shriners, who have done so much for burned and crippled children in America with their free hospitals. Either way, one must be a Master Mason first before choosing the other or both paths of education. Lake Lodge has started four new Brothers on their path this year with three or four more applications that are yet to be investigated and their degrees begun before this year ends. This has been the largest number of new members to Lake Lodge #72 in some time, but they would warmly welcome more. Lake Lodge #72, located at 112 Shrine Club Road in the Lake Como area, has regular meetings the first and third Mondays of each month, with dinner being served at 6:30 p.m. and their Called Communication at 7:30 p.m. Master of the Lodge, Henry Smith invites all who may be interested in Freemasonry to come by and visit. Our wives are always at attendance for the dinner, says Smith. Lake Lodge #72 is planning a Dinner and a Dance to begin in September on Saturday evenings, that will be open to everyone in the community. Watch for the announcement to come.Lake Lodge #72 Has Another Entered Apprentice Degree Photo Special to the Courier Journal First place team Allen Hoper and Kerrie Davis, second place team Scooter Goodson and Evan McCleod, and third place/big fish Scott King.

Parents need to take the right steps starting now to make sure their students are prepared to tackle new academic challenges with the right habits and daily routines. This includes trying not to be so consumed with showing up in the latest fashions; its not that important. Thats why Sylvan Learning has put together four simple tips for parents and four simple tips for children that can help boost student success in the new school year. Here are four things parents can do to help their children achieve better academic results: Impose the TwoWeek Rule With later bedtimes over the summer, children need to ease back into their school routine rather than having a sudden change their first day of school. Using the last two weeks of summer to re-introduce a school year bedtime routine will make waking up on that first day a lot easier. Reintroduce Regular Meal Times During summer months, kids tend to grab a snack several times during the day. Parents can start reminding students to get back into a threemeal-a-day schedule in order to regulate their system into the back-to-school mode. Nutrition is an important factor in academic performance, and eating a healthy, balanced breakfast and lunch keeps kids alert throughout the day. Family Calendar Time management is tricky for everyone, especially kids and teens, but planning is an important way to save everyones sanity. Having major deadlines, due dates, events and extracurricular activities in one place helps kids visualize their week, manage their time and stay on track. Dont Ditch Good Habits If you and your child have established a good summer learning routine, when school starts try not to forsake all of the fun reading, writing and art activities that kept your child engaged all summer. Here are four important things that students can follow to improve the academic quality of the school year, starting on Day One. Organize Organization is not overrated. Keeping notes, projects and reading materials in logical order helps students find what they need right away, cutting down on time spent tracking things down, and allowing more time for actual studying. Take good notes Yes, it does matter. Taking good notes helps keep kids grades up, especially in middle or high school. To boost note-taking skills, students should practice picking out the, main ideas in conversations, news reports, or magazine articles. Concentrate Staying focused is easier for some kids than others. Students need to do their best to avoid distractions in class. This means keeping cell phones tucked away and being vocal if a chatty classmate is too distracting. Speak upStudents often can get tripped up by homework or test instructions. Students should know its OK to speak up if they dont understand testing or homework directions. Students should also listen carefully and spend plenty of time reading directions.
