The Palatka High Cheerleading squad hosted a fundrais er this past Satur day at Beck Ford in Palatka. Cars were lined up around the side of the building as the cheerleaders vacuumed, washed and dried cars as part of the fundraiser. A bake sale and garage sale were also on hand in an effort to raise the much-needed funds for the cheerleaders. In addition to hosting the event, Beck Ford held the Drive 4UR School, which donated $20 for every test drive taken that day. At the time of publication the official fundraising total was not tallied, but it is estimated that approximately $6,000 was raised in the one-day event. With funding cuts over the past few years, fundraisers have become more and more important as a means of raising money for all extracurricular school activities. Over the past few weekends, Beck Ford has helped raise close to $9,000 for area schools in an effort to help fund these programs.

A large group of boats could be seen shrimping just south of the Memorial Bridge in Palatka this past Sat urday. Even with temperatures reaching over 90 degrees, shrimpers reported good numbers and fair size so far this season. Most hope for large numbers and shrimp in the weeks to come.

Seven Stores Caught Selling Alcohol to Minors Putnam County On Friday, September 6, 2013, Putnam County Sheriffs Office Deputies joined forces with the Division of Alcoholic Bever ages and Tobacco to combat the sale of alcohol ic beverages to persons under the legal drinking age. Law enforcement officers utilized undercover juveniles to visit 18 stores in Putnam County in an attempt to purchase al cohol illegally. Of the 18 Stores, seven were found not to be in compliance, selling alcohol to minors. Following is a listing of stores where the clerks violated the law: 1. Lake Como Food Mart 1971 S Hwy 17, Lake Como, FL 2. Kangaroo Express 1171 S Hwy 17, Satsuma, FL 3. One Stop Food Mart 331 S Hwy 17, East Palatka, FL 4. Kangaroo 1205 S SR 19, Palatka, FL 5. Kangaroo 720 S SR 19, Palatka, FL 6. ABC Liquors Palatka, FL 7. Jas Food Mart 101 N 19th St, Palatka, FL Complaint affidavits were filed with the State Attorneys Office in most cases. One physical ar rest was made on the clerk at the Jas Food Mart after numerous complaints were received by Crime Stoppers and the Sheriffs Office about underage sale violations at the store. Stores which were found to be in compliance were as follows: 1. Crescent City Food Mart 2. Kangaroo #2107 Crescent City 3. Yash Food Mart Crescent City 4. Kangaroo #2777 Pomona Park 5. Kangaroo #6272 San Mateo 6. Kangaroo #6289 Satsuma 7. Sunshine Corp #290 East Palatka 8. Sunshine Express #291 East Palatka 9. Buddies Country Corner East Palatka 10. Chevron Silver Lake Road / State Road 20 11. Chevron Corner of Moseley Avenue and Reid Street Sheriff Hardy said of the operation: I am dis pleased with the high in cidence of noncompliance with underage drinking laws at local stores. It is my sincere hope that store clerks become more diligent when checking customers identifica tion. Girl Falsely Reports Attempted AbductionPalatka On Tuesday, September 10, 2013, Putnam County Sheriffs Office Detectives have determined through investigation that the abduction attempt reported to the Sheriffs Office on August 26, is false. Detectives drew this conclusion after hours of interviews and review of video footage at Palatka High School. Additional ly, detectives re-created the incident timeline and interviewed several wit nesses before determining that witnesses could not corroborate the al leged victims story. Detectives have not determined if crimi nal charges will be filed against the false reporter. After hearing of the in vestigative findings, Sher iff Jeff Hardy said: Alle gations like this are some of the most serious we investigate. I am relieved that we discovered the incident did not occur, but frustrated that we put forth so much effort that could have been focused on another investigation. Governor Scott and FWC Add Four More License-Free Fishing Days to the CalendarGovernor Rick Scott and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission an nounced four additional license-free fishing days. Governor Scott said, Floridas license-free fishing days are the perfect opportunity for people to try, or introduce a friend to, some of the finest fishing in the world. Im excited that the FWC has adopted four more license-free fishing days for a total of eight days per year. These days are a great way to introduce more Floridians to the lifetime sport of fishing. The additional saltwater license-free fishing days will be October 12 and November 30, and additional freshwater license-free days will be November 29 and December 28. Special to the Courier Journal Celebration Committee Meeting Please plan to attend the Celebration Committee meeting at City Hall on September 19, at 6 p.m. to hear the Com mittees developing outline of the planned events and to have an opportunity to contribute your ideas.

The Putnam County Courier Journal does not knowingly publish false information and may not be held liable for the views of readers exercising their right to free expression.One of the stated reasons for raising taxes in Crescent City was because of the increase in automobile insurance rates. Which department in Cres cent City has the most automobiles on the streets? Is it, perhaps, the Police department? I think it probably is. What are we going to do when our old police cars finally are worn out and we need new ones? Oh yeah, no prob lem, just have to raise taxes again! I am somewhat surprised that my thoughts on the sheriff taking over law enforcement in Crescent City are being pretty much ignored by the officials who could make a difference. I know that I am regarded as some kinda nut by those folks. Obviously, they think that if they just ignore me for long enough, Ill go away. Guess what? Theyre right. Evidently, I am about the only one who thinks that this little town has gotten too small to afford its own police department. It is not like this paper has been flooded with let ters voicing agreement with me. If everyone else is comfortable with paying two law enforcement agencies, I am not going to let it bother me. My goal is to sell the property which I own in Crescent City and move on. The fact that I was born within the city limits of this town doesnt mean that I was sentenced to live here forever AND to retire here. Crescent City isnt what she used to be, not by a long shot. When Nancy and I actually retire we want to be closer to many things. We want medical facilities near enough to respond to emergency needs. We want restaurants, movies and cultural events. Most important, we want to feel safe in our old age. I can see us relocating in either Palatka or at the coast. Our kids and grandkids are in Palatka. We have no relatives in the Crescent City area anymore. However, we still have many friends who live in the area, so we dont want to move too far away. Time will tell. Who knows what the future holds for any of us? Anyway, you may all rest assured that I am going to leave the operation of Crescent City to those who have been elected and/or hired to do that job. Good luck. As the City continues to shrink, its going to get more and more taxing. Isnt it a shame that a relative few people (who dont even live in Crescent City) managed to drive Wal-Mart away from building their distri bution center here? Had those people not cried so loud and been so greedy, that distribution center would be operational now, our economy would be booming and Crescent City would be growing instead of being in the throes of an agonizingly painful death. Thats where the not in our backyard mentality has gotten us. Wal-Mart did buy the land and they won the right to build their distribu tion center. Yet, when the economy tanked, so did their plans. We dont know if they will ever revive those plans or not. How sad, we came close to rebirth. Wal-Mart spent a lot of money fighting law suits so that they could build here. Its no wonder that they may not have a very nice flavor left in their mouth as regards Crescent City. Perhaps they are like a lot of us and dont want to be where they arent wanted or appreciated. They probably looked around and thought we would welcome the jobs and tax revenue they would have provided. I fear that they are now gun-shy when it comes to us. I am not naming names but I remember very well exactly who the folks were that killed our big chance to regain our strength and become, once again, a real City with a future. Im sure you know who you are too, and I suspect that you are still gloating over your success. Do you smile when you see poor little kids around here whose parents cant find jobs and must sacrifice their dignity and seek help to provide for their families? Enjoy our local police force while you can. At the rate things are going, they wont be here much longer, unless something really big happens. All we can do is pray for as painless a death as possible.Feeling Lower Than a Snakes BellyLloyd Harris Local crime hot spots will be listed here weekly.

Clayton Frank Lake Como Dear Editor: I would like to recognize the Crescent City Flower Shop for their generosity. My mother has been a resident at Lakewood Nursing Home for 7 years. Yesterday, September 8, was her 90th birthday and the flower shop sent her flowers. The Crescent City Flower Shop sends flowers to all of the women residents at the nurs ing home on their birthday. My mother has received flowers on her birthday every year that she has been there. This is not a request from the nursing home but an act of kindness from the owner of the flower shop. I am sure that most people in the area are not aware of this. I just wanted to say THANK YOU Diana for being so kind and generous. My mother did not recognize me or my sister when we went to see her, but when I showed her the flowers that she received from the Crescent City Flower Show she got a big smile on her face and said how pretty. A grateful daughter of a resident of Lakewood Nursing Center Mary Phillips Crescent CityThank You Crescent City Flower Shop Dear Editor: Thank you, dear sir, for your clarification. Obviously, I struck a nerve that you seem to believe warranted such a retort. Anyone who defends their position so ve hemently as you have, with degradation and insults focused on physicality, clearly and in my humble opinion, has no mirrors in his house. The year this story happened is inconsequential and you have made it quite apparent that you still carry (or wish you did) that level of hormonal imbalance. Im puzzled and surprised that someone in 2013 would write such a piece. Please, dear, kind sir, was the piece intended to be humorous, informative or just an irrev erent piece of a time when children are on the brink of adulthood? None of these choices in my estimation are pleasant, but its all I can come up with, or care to spend any more time focusing on and Im curious as to which you will choose. This reader needs to understand the point of the piece in order to, oh I dont know, perhaps better understand the male mind. Knowledge is power. In closing, thank you, again, (for some reason I believe you need two) for such a detailed explanation, thus confirming just how obtuse the more, rather than less, you write becomes. Yours truly, Wendy Aucoin Satsuma P.S. I look forward to more and I am sure you will not disappoint.Lipstick on Whose Nose??? Response

Kerr Family Visitors Bill and Pat Kerr enjoyed having daughter, Sabrina and grandson, Jeremi ah from Ft. Pierce here for a visit. They attended church together at First Baptist Church of Pomona Park. The children helped with some jobs around the house. It was a good visit. 50 Years Wright and Marianne Simmons celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this summer with a party at Belles Bistro. About 70 people were in attendance. Many more happy anniver saries are wished for you. Mountain Home Irv and Elaine Rae have sold their home in Washington State and bought one in Blairsville, Georgia (my home area.) Elaine said they love the cool mountain breeze, the Farmers Market is wonderful, and church is great. People are so friendly, Breakfast at Hole in the Wall and the Sawmill are delicious. I have an invitation to visit them when I go up to son, Scotts, for Thanksgiving if they are in the area. Ray and Melissa Singleton also have bought a home up there. Fish Fry a Success The fundraiser Fish Fry at Pomona Park was a big success combined with the Garage Sale next door and some furniture and exercise equipment at the Fitness Center. Around $2,000 was raised to help with the work on the Fit ness Center. CEO Bob Martin is amazed with the volunteers and help from the Pomona Park Commu nity, as well as the whole area. We all say thanks. It was good to see Jer ry Holsapple helping with the sh frying. It seemed like old times when he and Linda were involved in community projects. Bob Morey does a great job frying sh. Thanks to all the volunteers. They do good work. Someone made the comment; we should have had a picture of the guy frying sh in the rain and another one holding an umbrella over him. Volunteers Recognized At the Republican Party, Putnam County Chapter, Lincoln Day Celebration on Friday, September 6, held at the American Legion in East Palatka, Governor Scott recognized three volunteers following his talk.

Two of the volunteers were from our area and they are Mrs. Peg Pe tersen, David Enzor and Carol Reed. The Honorees were presented with a cer ticate signed by the Governor.

The program is compromised of commu nity leaders, mentors and staff from Crescent City Jr. Sr. High School. It was re freshing to see various eth nic groups socializing and mingling together during the meeting.

Looking further at the edgling citrus in dustry in Crescent City, and how it shaped the development of com merce in the area, Bri an Michaels in The River Flows North, the Bicentennial history of Putnam County (pub lished before the freez es of the 1980s once again devastated the citrus industry in this part of the state), re lates the following: From 1870 to 1894 the citrus industry grew and prospered. Fruit was packed in barrels in the groves just as it came from the trees. As the business grew, the grove owners built packing houses, mostly along the lake shore and upon wharfs, each grower packing his own crop. Barrels were expensive and hard to handle, so they were discarded and the fruit was eventually packed in boxes similar to the ones now in use. The rst packing house engaged in packing fruit for hire was built by Clay Grable. Later Ed Maull and John W. Mill er invented a mechanical fruit sizer; then washers and polishers were added and more recently the coloring rooms and centralized packing plants which in due time have eliminated the privately operated packing houses. A description of Maulls pneumatic sizer is found in the September 6, 1900 issue of the Crescent City News: The pneu matic sizer is circular in form, using two pneumatic gauges for the fruit. These tubes are softer and give to the irregular ity in the fruits sizes it is efcient because it rotates the fruit between the pneumatic tubes at the rate of four hundred oranges per minute, and sizes them perfectly without the slightest injury When boxed it is con tained in a package 32 inches square by 10 inches deep and weighs about 100 pounds. This makes it a desirable machine for foreign countries and buyers of fruit, being very portable. A4 OUR TO WN Years Ago...75 years agoSeptember 21, 1988 Feds Want Money Back for LNH The federal government has gone to court in an effort to recover some of a $392,560 grant used by Putnam Coun ty to build Crescent Citys Lakeshore Nursing Home. In a dispute thats been simmering for some years, the government claims the county violated provisions of the Hill-Burton Act, the federal grants program, when they leased Lakeshore to a private operator in 1982. According to term of the grant, the county had to operate the home as a public, non-profit facility for at least 20 years. The county operated the home for about 13 years before leasing it. The businessman then contracted with one of the nations largest private nursing home operators.25 years agoSeptember 23, 1938 Council Regulates Garbage Service At a meeting of the Crescent City Town Council last Wednesday night, a resolution was passed regulat ing the activities of the city truck. Originally the truck was purchased to pick up ordinary trash. As time went on prunings from shade and orange trees were added .It has became more than one truck can handle. The city truck hence forth will handle ordinary wet and dry garbage only. Property owners are now prohibited from piling up prunings upon the street and parkways. Such prunings must be disposed of by the property owners.

Prompted by a Courier Journal story, the Crescent City Police Department investigated the bins. They discovered the bins to be fraudulently marked as going to a charity, and instead belong to a for-profit company in Daytona Beach. The city ordered the bins sealed. The company did not received permission to place the bins in the parking lots. They are also under investigation by the FDLE and the IRS as well as local law enforcement agencies. Compiled from the Crescent City News, Crescent City Journal, Crescent City Courier Journal, Putnam County Courier Journal and other local news sources. 5 years agoSeptember 17, 2008 Student Tased at CCJ-SHS Last week, three students were arrested and one student was tased after a fight that took place at Crescent City Jr.-Sr. High School. The fight was sparked by an incident that took place in the area where a couple of the students live. The previous weekend, one family living in the Long Station area was allegedly shot at, which was never reported to law enforcement officials. One of the victims believed he made contact with another student involved in the incident and approached him. The alleged perpetrator confirmed that he was involved. Tempers escalated between the two throughout the day until a fight broke out, that several other students got involved in as well. Way Back When...

Be sure to catch The Morning Show, Monday Friday, 7 9 a.m. Haley Bell was very eager for school to start back this year. She had a very special treasure to show her new classmates that was sure to wow them. The sev en-year-old Middleton Burney student found a three and half inch tooth while riding her bike on the familys newly resurfaced road. Bell thought she had found an other small tooth because most of it was covered with rocks and shells. With the help of her father, they soon learned just how big the tooth really was. The family has found a total of seven teeth altogether on their road near Browns Hammock Road, but Bells nd was special for this Crescent City family. Dr. Richard C. Hulbert, a paleontologist with The Florida Museum of Nat ural History, identied the tooth as coming from the famous prehistoric megalodon. It is fairly common to nd sharks teeth from the same spe cies in Florida rock and sediment, noted Hulbert when discussing the different teeth that the Bell family has uncovered. Bell has her own theory on how the sharks teeth made their way to the familys dirt road. Once we started nding a lot of teeth, I realized that the sand they put on the road came from the ocean. The teeth were probably in the sand and shells. Alex Bell, Haleys older brother, said the family looked for the missing piece but they were unable to nd it. Bell doesnt seem to care that the tooth could be anywhere from 3 million to 15 million years old. She just thinks that its pretty cool that the smallest person in the family found the big gest tooth. Alex, 8, also thinks the tooth is pretty awesome, and knowing it came from a megalodon makes it even more interesting. While the tooth has sparked a lot of inter est in the family, Bell says being a fossil hunter is not in her future. Instead she wants to be a veter inarian so she can help animals. Alex, on the oth er hand, is eager to nd his rst tooth with hopes that it will be bigger than his little sisters. Their recent discoveries have him wanting to collect ancient things including sharks teeth and other antiques. Future Fossil HuntersMaybeTasha NewboldCommunity Contributor Photo by Tasha Newbold Haley, 7, and big brother Alex, 8, show off two of the largest shark teeth they have found.

One of my fond est childhood memo ries when I was growing up in the Midwest was chasing fireflies on warm summer evenings. During my working years, I lived in urban areas so I did not expect firefly sight ings. but when I moved to Putnam, I began to look for the little critters with little success. Sometimes I glimpsed a flash or two at tree top level. but not the rapid flashes of hundreds of little lights close to the ground that I re membered from my youth. So I did a little firefly research. Firefly season in Central & North Florida is April, and they can be found in unlit (street and yard lighting confus es the little guys) pastures and woodlands near water. This little beetle, which belongs to the family Lampy ridae, inhales oxygen, which combines with the chemical luciferin in their abdomen. The resultant light, which emits no heat, is how the fireflies communicate with each other. The male emits a double flash every three feet or so of flight, whereas the female emits a single flash. Firefly eggs and larva also glow in response to vibrations. Scientifically, fireflies provide a useful function. If the light causing firefly chemicals are injected into cells, they can detect chang es and abnormalities within the cells. Pos sibly we are not notic ing fireflies because we and our children spend so much of our time indoors at night, and we have certainly destroyed much of their preferred habitat. Well, I had missed April, and it was at the end of August, and I was giving the dogs a late night walk. There was a light pitty-pat type of rain and no wind, and the rain drops on the grass beneath the street light were spar kling. No, wait, some of the grass blades were actually flashing, and in the darkened area beyond the range of the street light there were more flashes, and when I bent down and ruffled the grass there were still more flash es. It was the wrong time of year and the wrong conditions. but I had found my fireflies. Perhaps it was a late season hatch. Whatever the reason, it was a lovely experience, and I have marked my calen dar for April 2014. This has been a spectacular summer for butterflies especially the Zebra longwing, which is the Florida state butterfly. The Zebra and the Gulf Fritillary use the Passion flower vine as a host and a nectar plant. but they seem to have worked out a sharing agreement where the Frit will oc cupy the plant early in the season, and the Zebra will show up in late summer. This summer the Frit population is way down, so I have had the Zebras almost constantly. For sever al years I was dealing with the butterfly virus (NPV) that attacks the caterpillars and causes them to literally melt on the vine. This virus is spread by contact with infected caterpillars and butterflies. The only solution is to cut back the host plants to the ground so the butterflies will not come in contact with the contaminated leaves, and let nature work it out. We clever humans have worked out how to produce this virus in the lab, and are using it commercially to prevent caterpillar destruction of food crops. However, the systemic or spray cannot differ entiate between good and bad caterpillars, and the terms good and bad depend upon what you are trying to achieve. If you are buy ing herb plants such as parsley and dill to plant outside to encourage butterflies, make sure the plant is organic or grown from seed. Being able to observe masses of Zebra long wings (Helicoius charitonia) interact has been very educational. Most butterflies live only a few weeks. but Zebras can live for sever al months. Adult butterflies feed off flower nectar. but the Zebras can also feed off flow er pollen, and they do not just feed randomly. but will return to the same plant day after day. They have a social interaction and will gather together at night with the older insects getting the best spots. This clustering is called a roost. My group of Zebras has found a Yaupon holly tree, and I will find them at night clinging to the ends of branches swinging in the night wind much like ornaments on a Christmas tree. All of the species of Florida butterflies seem to be at large now. I am seeing the tiny Hair streaks, the mid-sized Sulphurs, and the royalty of the butterfly world: the Monarchs, the Palamedes swal lowtail, and the Easter Tiger swallowtail. My ginger plants were late growing this year probably because of lack of rain earlier in the summer. but they are hap pily in bloom right now. These are easy garden plants that spread by rhizomes, and once they have found a spot they like, are al most impossible to kill. They are classified as shade plants. but will grow in the sun. the blooms just wont last as long. Butterflies love gingers as nectar plants. The white butterfly ginger will bloom until frost. then the tall leaf sheaths will turn brown, and I will cut them back to the ground. It is time to think about the fall gardens. If the rains continue, planting from seed is going to be an iffy proposition as the rains will wash away the seeds, and any that sprout are subject to damping off. Wait for a dryer spell to plant radishes, carrots, and lettuce. Consider planting early fall crops such as squash, cucumbers, beans, peppers and to matoes from starts. Herbs such as all the mints, tarragon, rosemary, parsley, cilantro, and basil can be added to the garden now. Consider putting a pot of herbs by the front or back door, so you will always have fresh herbs near to hand to add to the meal you are preparing. Whether planting in ground or in pots, group plants with similar watering needs together. Herbs that prefer hot and dry are: rosemary, orega no, marjoram, sage, lavender, and thyme. Herbs that do better in moist conditions are: cilantro, mint, parsley, basil, chives and tar ragon. Monitor your lawn for army worms, cinch bugs, mole crickets, and sod webworms. Now is the time to fer tilize your lawn with a slow or timed release nitrogen fertilizer. Do not use a weed and feed product. but do look for the product with the most nitrogen and the least amount of phos phorus. For those of you more than one year away from a chemistry class, the fertilizer bag will have the NPK rec ipe on the front. A bag with 15-0-15 means that it contains 15% nitrogen, zero percent phosphorus, and 15% potassium. Apply fer tilizer at the rate of 6 pounds per 1000 feet of lawn. Do not apply twenty-four hours before or during a heavy rain. but do water in with no more than inch of water. If you spill fertilizer on a hard surface, sweep it up and return it to the bag. Do not wash it into a drain. We are trying to keep excess nitrogen out of our water sources. Excess ni trogen contributes to an excess population of blind mosquitos, and an increase in algae growth which results in fish kill. Apply the last fertilizer treatment of the year to your cit rus. If you have grape vines, prune the whips now. but not the entire plant. Do not prune trees or bushes that are still in bloom. Dust off your gloves and sharpen your pruners. Garden work begins.

To sponsor the report or If you have results from Bass Tournaments held in the State of Florida please forward them to scott@kingsprint.com September 18, 2013 COURIER JOURNAL Section B The very rst of the several sports items Im go ing to throw out there this week is the goings on of the Americas Cup. Most of my comments are not born of experience in the art of sailboat racing, but from those of Kenny Brandon, local man about town. It is literally because he delivers mail in and about our town, and also dabbles in things like computers and marine stuff. Anyway, he pumped me up about the current Americas Cup racing competition now going on, and I must admit it beats watching soccer by a ton. No dispersion cast against that sport of the ages, which is also con sidered the real football by purists from around the world, but what I watched a week ago caught my eye. I always though Cup racing involved the graceful single hulled ships with the giant center mast, leaning into the wind and clipping along at maybe 25 to 30 miles per hour (could be in nauti cal miles per hour, known as knots). But I soon discovered that now were talking about 60 foot pontoon boats with a crew of twelve ying around at 50 MPH or so. Its not always on the twin hulls, but on a pair of surf board sized things that drop down in the water from each pontoon and enable these monsters (and they are not graceful or pretty) to virtually y off the surface at great speeds. This year the nals are between the U.S and New Zealand, and I can tell you that as we write, that New Zealand has, what appears to be an insur mountable lead, having only to win three races to close it out. If you ever have the opportunity to watch one of these races, jump on it. You will nd it interesting to say the least. Now, what can we say about Johnny Manziel after Saturdays game against Bama at Kyle Sta dium in College Station, Texas, home of the Tex as A&M Aggies. Actually, A&M could well be our households number two SEC favorite behind the Gators, since Rose Marie is a native of Abilene and her brother attended that school. Manziel did throw a couple of interceptions, one of which was tipped. That made a difference in the outcome, but otherwise he was just short of sensational. He threw for over 400 yards and ve touchdowns against what is supposed to be the number one de fensive unit in the country. To its credit, Alabama won the game on the road, but anyone watching that game, it had to be like watching a young man who is, arguably, the best college quarterback in the country. Alabamas McCarron, playing behind a superior offensive line, had a good night and that cannot be challenged. However, to me he is basically a system guy, who has average skills, but thats probably do to excellent coaching that has brought out his best efforts. Georgias Aaron Murray comes the closest to Manziel in natural ability, but there is no one that Ive seen that has the ability to carry a team to the extent that he has. A Georgia/A&M contest would well determine the top quarterback in the country, but odds are that will not happen. In the meantime, Tennessee, Floridas next op ponent, got trashed by Oregon. The Vols are not that bad, and Im condent the Gators are aware of that or, at least better be. If the Gators get upset this Saturday, Bill Muschamp has real problems facing him in the SEC East and a chance to go to Atlanta. Im not sure who backs up Jeff Driskil at quarterback for Florida, but if he isnt healthy (sprained ankle), this game could go against the Gators. Dirskil has been less than impressive so far and you know, at Florida, so goes the quar terback, so goes the team. Im looking for a Gator victory, say 21-7, at least. Congrats to the Seminoles for a victory over pow erful Nevada on Saturday, but anytime you score over 50 points, youve no doubt got some authen tic athletic ability on the team, and FSU appears to have that. I believe their schedule should car ry them undefeated up to the Clemson game, and then who knows. Id love to see the Noles come into Gainesville undefeated in November. Looks as though the Atlanta Braves and Boston Red Sox will be odds on favorites to meet in the World Series, but unfortunately for them, seldom do the favorites get that far. Maybe this year it will be different. I hope so.

Second closest with 13-5/8 inches was Cliff Arbon. & FACES PLACES Special to theCourier Journal Every Saturday morning I have basically the same routine. I wake up at around 5:30 a.m., get a quick shower while my coffee is brewing and then, I sit down at my com puter and check out the sports on the inter net. This Saturday was no different, except I logged on to the Baker County Press to see what they had to say about the game Friday night against the Crescent City Raiders. The first sentence of the sports section in the Baker county Press basically said the Raid ers were beat down in their loss against the Baker County Wild cats. Yes, I will agree that the Crescent City Raiders lost the game, but beat down? No way! Yes, the Raiders were tired, but they were far from beat down. During the first quar ter, it was a tie game, at 7-7, where Bennie Norris scored a touchdown and, in fact, got the second TD as well. I asked Coach Smith after the game, What happened? He re plied, They had 30 big guys, but thats no excuse. We could have played better. The Wildcats are a well-coached team and their boys were well mannered. It was a great Friday night for football. My guys nev er quit and they never backed down! This is what I signed up for, guys who stand their ground. Im proud of my men! As I reflect back on the game, I have to say, he is absolutely right. Not once did I see these young men give up during the game. What I did hear as I stood on the sideline with these war riors were comments like, Get your head in the game, We can still beat these guys, etc. Even in the 4th quarter these words rang out as they trailed 38 points behind the Wildcats. These were not the words from the coaches either, but the words from the Raiders football players. Now dont feel sorry for these young men because this last game didnt turn out the way it was planned. These are some of the strongest, toughest and hard hitting young men I have ever met, trust me on this one, because Friday night, while trying to get the perfect photo of Bennie Norris tackling a Wild cat from the sideline, I got clocked. Thanks Bennie for the scar on my forearm. Man can that guy hit! This Friday night, September 20, at 7 p.m., the Raiders will take on Jacksonville at home. The price is only $5 a person at the gate, thats for students and adults! You wont find a better night out for $5. I guarantee it. So pack up that cooler and get there early, drop the tailgate and lets show our young warriors that we stand behind them and believe in them.

Each year the Lee Conlee House, un der the direction of the Prevention Coordinator, hosts a Sur vivor Art Show. The art show began as a way for survivors to express, through art, the violence and abuse they have experienced in their lives; to tell their story to the community. Through the art show, we acknowledge the pain that survi vors have endured and honor their memories of their lives and visions for their future. Through the art show, we hope to reach others in the community who might be experiencing abuse in their lives, to let them know that they are not alone and it is okay to talk to someone. Through the art show, we also hope to show the community a vision of peace, of hope, for a better world. While violence is a dark subject, a subject most people would rather not talk about, there is still light to be found in that darkness, the light of a better day, of a world without violence. That is the goal of our art show this year: to help others imagine the hope of a better day, a world without violence.
