On Halloween, trickor-treaters turned out in droves to participate this years annual Trunk-or-Treat at Winn-Dixie in Crescent City. This annual event is one of, if not the, largest organized trickor-treating events in all of Putnam County. Event organizer Tasha Newbold reported 1065 children came through the line to get their fill of candy this Halloween. This number topped last years record of 869. These numbers do not include adults that accompany the candy goers. We really want to thank Winn-Dixie, stated Newbold. They were by far our largest sponsor of the event this year. This years event was moved to the west parking lot of Winn-Dixie and proved to be a better location than the east lot, where it was held in years past. Crescent City Jr./ Sr High Schools art class painted a spooky mural on the wall of the store to help set the Halloween mood. Lar ry Court, Winn-Dixies store manager reported that this was his first year being part of the event. This was a much larger turn out than I ever would have expected, said Court. Candy was handed out by individuals and some businesses that volunteered both their time and candy to help make this years Trunk-orTreat a huge success. Anyone who wants to participate is welcome, said Newbold. Its a great community building event.

Robert Laurie, chef at Disneys Cinderellas Royal Table and brother of William, prepared the boil with corn, potatoes, onions, smoked sausage, his own spice mix and shrimp so big you could call them prawns on the back courtyard of the club. Guests of the event ate, socialized, snacked on venison and kept an eye on the Florida Georgia game while waiting for the drawing inside. At eight oclock guests gathered in the front of the club for the drawing and announcement of the winners. To every ones surprise both the fourth and fifth place prize of $50 gift certificates to Musselwhites Restaurant were won by Donnie Hart of Avon Park.

Back then (1961) we had 1 teacher and 1 classroom where we were taught everything from music to arithmetic. My First grade teacher, Mrs. Secino, taught me the most important songs that I would learn in my lifetime. Every holiday, regardless of the level of importance stamped on a calendar was respected with a song or 2 or more. Veterans Day was obviously one that required a couple of weeks with so many wonderful and respectful tunes. My favorite will always be, The Marine Corps Hymn. With that song in mind along came my favorite wartime movie, Battle Cry. This movie has remained my favorite and a Veterans Day has not passed without viewing Battle Cry at least once within the day. How could I get through Veterans Day without hearing Aldo Ray yell out, Corpsman, Corpsman. As the years have flown by since First grade, my life would weave in and out of service to those who graciously and bravely served our country. I enjoyed many years as a volunteer with the USO and took a brief break when I married my own Marine. My Marine turned 18 in Vietnam, December of and his birthday gift was the TET Offensive. His older brother, by 1 year, was also there at the same time with the Army. I can only imagine how that birthday celebration rolled. Within a few years and our happy little family thriving, I felt the urge to once again give support to our Veterans. My family joined in and we became involved with a grassroots organization that began in the early 80s focusing on Vietnam and Vietnam Era Veterans. This organization I am quite proud to say has grown into helping ALL Veterans and their families. Its been 3 years since my Marine passed. During the 23 years of our marriage, every Veterans Day I would quote myself with, Hug and kiss a Vet. This Veterans Day I share this quote, Thank you to all Veterans, my respect and love to you all and God Bless you Marine, may you rest comfortably.

Kimberly Guererro Third grade: Ms. Smith and Mrs. Samecs class Students at Middleton-Burney Elementary School, in Crescent City, were asked the following question by 3rd Grade teacher Tasha Newbold: Eyes Eyes An old veteran friend of mine, Sid, passed away this last week. We spent a lot of time doing drama together, and he taught me many things. He had been involved in theater since the days of vaudeville. He knew the old building we worked in better than anyone else, understanding its idiosyncrasies, and he shared with me more than I can ever remember. But there were other things he shared with me that meant even more than his knowledge and love of the theater. Sid often spoke of his love for this country. A veteran of World War II, he talked about fighting in the south Pacific. One story he told me was especially memorable. They had been involved in a fierce battle on the front for many days, and when there was a slight break in the fighting, the men emerged from their fox holes to try to get food and other necessities from the supply line. While they were above ground, they suddenly came under a heavy Japanese bombardment. The men made a mad dash to their fox holes. Sid and another man arrived at a fox hole at the same time, and each paused to defer to the other. But the other man grabbed Sid and threw him into the fox hole, then jumped in on top of him. In that instant, a bomb hit next to them with a deafening explosion, sending dirt and debris everywhere, and causing chaos and confusion. When everything cleared, Sid found that the other man had been killed from the shrapnel from which he had protected Sid. When the fighting subsided for long enough that the dead could be buried, Sid tenderly car ried his friend to where the others had been laid to be transported to the site where they would be put into simple graves. Sid kept the mans personal effects, hoping that if he lived through the horrors of war and returned to the country he loved, he might take those things back to the mans family and share with them the story of his heroic life. The war continued on for a long time, but finally the day came that Japan surrendered. As Sids return ship neared the shores of the country for which he had served, his only thoughts were in finding the family of the man who had saved his life, and sharing with them the tale he bore in his heart. But this was not to be an easy task with a quick ending. He was able to find out the address of the mans family from the military records, but when he arrived there, he found they had moved, and he could find no for warding address. He tried in desperation to find them, but to no avail. He eventually returned home, but continued his efforts to track them down. The days turned into weeks, the weeks into months, and the months into years, and still he had no luck. Time marched on, but Sids desire to find the mans family never left him. Whenever Sid shared the story he became somewhat emotional, especially as he grew older and thought he would never fulfil the promise he had made to himself. But as he was approaching his final years of life, his family decided to help him in his goal. With the Internet and other modern day tools, they started passing the word and getting friends, some who didnt even know Sid, involved in the search. I will never forget that day, in the summer of 2002, more than 50 years after the end of the war. We were in the middle of rehearsal for one of my plays, when a lady approached me and asked if there was a man named Sid in our cast. When I called to Sid and he came down off of the stage, the woman handed him a paper that included the phone number for his fox hole buddys family. When Sid read it, tears started to flow down his face. Sid excused himself, and when he returned an hour or so later, he wore a smile. An appointment had been set and he would be going to meet the family the next month when the production ended. What a glorious meeting he ended up having. What joy he found as he shared his story with the mans brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews, and in turn received their gratitude and hugs. What happiness he found when his commitment had finally been fulfilled. As I sat pondering Sids passing, and how much Ill miss him, I considered how fitting it was that he should leave us at this time of year. He would now be joining a faithful friend and comrade for what would truly be a Veterans Day reunion.Letter to the Editor

A3 OUR TO WN Years Ago...74 years agoNovember 9, 1988 Satsuma Hit by Winds Hoot Owl Ridge residents had plenty to talk about at their Saturday afternoon monthly meeting. That morning, wind gusts from a passing cold front, blasted the Dunns Creek-Satsuma area. Carports and mobile homes were damaged as well as power lines were torn down along US 17. The storm front came through about 8:30 a.m. bringing 50 mile-per-hour winds and several reports of a funnel cloud that may or may not have touched down. The winds lasted about 20 minutes.25 years agoNovember 12, 1937 Work on Putnam Stock Mart Pens Arrangements for early begging of work on building the pens for the stock market to be operated in connection with the farmers market at East Palatka was announced this week.

From a security surveillance tape viewed by police, it was found that at 3:57 a.m., a four-wheeler was seen exiting the building and about seven minutes later, another one was taken from the showroom floor. One of them was recovered but it could not be determined where the other one was. A cable was removed at the south end of the lot to allow the four-wheelers to cross Orange Avenue.

Three Bananas Three Bananas Restau rant was rocking Wednesday night, October 30, with the trivia games going on. Ther e were so many there in costume, the room and porch was full. Marie McDowell had invited me to come down and see all the costumes. They wer e great. Everyone was having a good time, Amy and Jeff Haston from the Sprague House closed their doors, brought the family and joined in the fun. The three wait resses were very busy. Hallie, Shelby and Angelica dr essed as tavern girls looked cute. McDowells granddaughter made her costume for her. There were so many great costumes I cant even try to name a lot of the wearers, but it was a great party. Winn-Dixie Mural The painting on the side of the Winn-Dixie store done by Mrs. Delaneys fth and sixth period from Crescent City Jr/ Sr High School was fantastic. Mike Jones will cover those festivities. Robinsons 69 Years Bernie and Doris Robinson celebrated their 69th wedding anniversary with long time friends, Molly and George Morris. The Robinsons were married in Pennsylvania, Oc tober 8, 1944, (someone who was listening to our conver sation said, Golly, I wasnt even bor n then.) They have two sons, Dennis and David, ve grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. This will probably be the last winter in Florida for them, they have purchased a retirement home in New York, near the boys, but we all tell them we have extra guest rooms. Bernie says we might take you up on that. They plan on getting the Good Sams Camping Club together for dinner sometime later. Sister Visits Ti and Allan Fraser enjoyed a visit from Tis twin sister Shirley and husband Tony Catanzarite from Wooster, Ohio. The girls did a little shopping and helped with the Sunday dinner after church October 27, at GFWC Cres cent City Womans Club. The guys joined them for lunch wher e they enjoyed Jan Car ters famous Pot Roast. Ti said they ate out a lot and really had a good visit. (Allan will have his train collection on the Womans Club Christ mas Tour of Homes Sun day, December 8. It is really worth the price of the tick ets.) Tickets will be available soon fr om any Womans Club member, Putnam County Cou rier Journal, and other places in town. I will have mor e on that later. Church in the Park Pastor Larry Case and members of Lake Como Unit ed Methodist Church moved the mor ning service to the park across from the Post Ofce on Sunday, October 13. The weather was beautiful and showed the glory of Gods cr eations as the congrega tion worshipped under Gods blue skies, said Pastor Case. The type of service happens about once a year Lay Leader Yvonne Stack, read the scripture. Hoyt Roberts and Jack Eichenlaub fur nished the music. Pastor Case said, If you have never worshipped in the open, it is quite an experience, as they say, Try it, youll like it.

Dire Year for the ManateeThis year has become the deadliest year ever for Floridas endangered manatees. In total, 769 manatees have died so far, from January 1 through October 29, making it the largest annual manatee die-off in Florida since record-keeping began. The previous record was set in 2010 when biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission documented 766 dead manatees, of which hundreds died from cold stress. With two months still to go in 2013, nearly twice the number of manatees has already died than died in all of 2012. According to Dr. Katie Tripp, Save the Manatee Clubs Director of Science and Conservation, two unusual mor tality events in 2013, coupled with the regular threats manatees face on a daily basis, have been responsible for the unprecedented losses. A record number of 276 manatees succumbed from exposure to a toxic red tide bloom in southwest Florida, centered in Lee County. Meanwhile, on Floridas east coast, an unusual mortality event claimed more than 100 manatee lives in Brevard County this year. This years record-breaking manatee mortality is a loud and clear signal that our waterways are in trouble, says Tripp, who explained that of the total number of manatee deaths so far this year, 123 were stillborn, newborn, or young calves less than five feet in length, which sets another annual record for this category of mortality. Of these, at least 49 were found in Brevard County, at the epicenter of the unusual mor tality event linked to a variety of algal blooms and loss of 47,000 acres of seagrass since 2010. Patrick Rose, who is an aquatic bioloDirector of the Club says, With 2013s catastrophic loss of manatee lives coming so close on the heels of the mass mortality suffered during 2010, the already difficult job to ensure the survival of these gentle and defenseless marine mammals has been made all the more challenging, and its not over yet. What we put into our waters, how much we pump from our aquifer and draw from our springs and rivers, together with how we use our waterways, all has an impact on our own lives and the lives of every aquatic species. We must be better stewards of our waters and waterways or suffer even more severe consequences going forward. Save the Manatee Club reminds the public that November is Manatee Awareness Month in Florida the time of year when manatees are on the move, making their way to important winter warm-water sites. The Club offers a variety of ways for the public in Florida to be directly involved with manatee protection during November and throughout the year. Free public awareness waterway signage, boating banners and decals, waterway cards, and educational posters are produced by the Club. The bright yellow waterproof banner which cautions, Please Slow: Manatees Below, can assist in warning boaters to slow down for manatees who may be in the area. Shoreline property signs and matching boat decals are also available, featuring the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions hotline number (1-888404-3922) for reporting sick and injured manatees. Boater and diver awareness posters are also available for dive shops, marinas, businesses, visitor centers, classrooms and librar ies. Family-friendly outdoor signs are produced by the Club and distributed to state, municipal, and county parks, marinas, and other sites where human/manatee interactions can be a problem. Requests for any of these free materials can be sent via e-mail to education@ savethemanatee.org or by calling toll free at 1-800-432-JOIN (5646). The publics ongoing participation in manatee conservation, in Florida and outside the state, is essential for the welfare and protection of the species and the aquatic habitats upon which they depend, says Rose.

Every week, just before the game I head over to the field house to listen to the Raiders football play ers talk about the game they ar e about to play, well that and to see in their eyes, what I use to feel 30 years ago when I was in their shoes. Friday afternoon was just like any other Friday with one exception. As I walk to the field house every week I see a young man sitting outside the locker room near the edge of the prac tice field and he is always listing to this one song on his cell phone. Now nor mally I dont bother this young man because I know he is clearing his mind and focusing on the game hes about to play, but I couldnt help but catch this one short verse in the song he was lis tening to, so I decided to stand ther e for a second and listen to the rest of the song. I have to admit his song had more mean ing than the song I use to listen to befor e my high school football games, which was by the Eagles, Heartache Tonight. Af ter the game I came home and took out my notes to put everything in order for this article. Well I decided to go on YouTube and click on the song this young man was lis tening to. The song is by Fort Minor and chances are if youre around my age then you have never heard it. The words in the first part of the song go like this, You ready? Lets go! Yeah! For those of you that want to know what were all about. Its like this yall. This is ten percent luck, twenty percent skill, fifteen per cent concentrated power of will, five per cent pleasure, fifty percent pain, and a hundr ed percent reason to remember the name Im not going to mention his name but let me say this, his pump me up song, had to of worked because this kid was on key all night. Around 2:30 p.m., the Raiders headed over to the First Presbyteri an Church in Crescent City wher e they enjoyed a home cooked meal. Pastor McCoy, Doug Wills and Wally Learner (who was the cook) served up the meal while Mu riel Kuhn and Carolyn Smith served the young men drinks. The meal consisted of meatloaf, mashed potatoes, gravy, peas with carrots, a bis cuit and to top it off, cake smother ed in blackberries. Coach Smith and the team wanted me to tell Pastor McCoy and his staf f, Thank you and it was the bomb! After arriving back at the school, Coach Smith and his staff went over some plays. As they walked through the differ ent plays I decided to take out my camera and get a few shots for the Putnam County Courier Journal Facebook page. As I was taking some shots, I hap pened to notice that Ryne Beasley had on a t-shirt with the Super man logo on the front of it and I made the comment, So are you planning on be ing Superman tonight? he r eplied, Oh yea, wait till you see me fly. I just smiled and continued to take pictures. I arrived at the Taylor High School football field and, because of traffic, I had to park outside of the school and run to the football field. As I got to the end zone the Raiders were making their way down the field and before I could get my camera out, they were at the goal line. Now here is one of the times in my life that I wish I could rewind 10 seconds backwards, just to get a picture. Beasley, #15, yells, One Omaha, two Omaha, hut, hut, then fades back into the pocket. He looks around, everyone is covered, then the front line opens up a small hole just big enough for Beasley to take five running steps, then he launches himself into the air, taking flight like Superman and lands about five feet over the goal line. Raiders 7, T aylor 0 with Abner Brito, #28, hitting it through the uprights. As Beasley ran passed me he said, Hey Coach I told you, Im Super man! Indeed he did, kind of makes me wonder if he still had the Super man shirt on under his unifor m. Next up Dillon Dunnigan, #2, pulls out his TD with a catch while in the air, backwards hanging on to the ball as he slams the turf. Now Im wondering, What was in that food the church served them? The score was Raiders 13, Taylor 0. Brito would miss the extra point which is only his second miss all year. So in my book the kid is doing great. Taylor would answer back with a TD and extra point making the score, Raiders 13, Taylor 7. That would be the only score Taylor put on the board all night. Next Derrick Rasher, #10, would run 50 yards with Taylor dead on his heels, unable to catch him. Score Raiders 20 Taylor 7. Again Britos extra point was good. Now it was time for Dadrian Ellis, #8, to score and Brito to make it Raid ers 27, Taylor 7. Im tell ing you, the Raiders were on fir e with Derrick Rash er, #10, and Brito slapping another seven points on the boar d, making the score Raiders 33, Taylor 7. It was almost the end of the game, but that didnt seem to bother Super man Beasley who inter cepted a Taylor pass and would deliver it to Rasher where he ran it to the end zone. With another one through the uprights by Brito, the score would be Raiders 40, Taylor 7. The last TD for the night would be when Ronkyysh Grant, #52, would recover a fumble and run it into the end zone, the buzzer sounded and the game was over making the final score, Raiders 46, Taylor 7. Now I want to say this before I move on here. I was asked by some of the fans if I was going to be writing about a couple of guys on the Taylor team who did a couple of cheap shots on the Raiders and I have even gotten emails from some of the fans asking the same ques tion. The answer is, No! Nor will I bash the coach ing staff at Taylor. Look guys, its like this, these young men ar e out there going at each other and, yes, tempers will flair, especially when it is your Homecoming game and youre trailing in points. I have met a couple of the coaches at Taylor and they have a fine coaching staff, all that happened was you had a couple of guys that were having a bad night, so lets just leave it at that. Now this brings me to my last point in this ar ticle, the coaches. Being a coach last year I got to see some things that most people never see and thats the coaches behind the scenes. Unlike college or pro coaches who make millions a year high school coaches dont make squat, yet I have seen Coach Smith and his coaching staff at the high school field house every Sunday afternoon way before football season ever started and ev ery Sunday during last season and this season watching films and com ing up with new plays trying to figur e out how to have a winning sea son. It doesnt stop there either; they also wash all the football uniforms af ter each game, as well as practice unifor ms. I have watched these coaches pool their money together and buy kids food so they would have something to eat after prac tice. Last year, they also helped with some Christmas gifts for a few of the kids who might not have had a Christmas, and all this is done on what little money they make. It doesnt stop ther e ei ther, these coaches are not just coaches who babysit our kids, and they are mentors who shape their lives, instilling good qualities in their minds. I have watched kids for the last year and a half walk up to all the coaches and ask their advice on things in their personal lives. Each week I have watched Coach Smith put a chair in the middle of the room and ask one player to sit down in the middle of the rest of the Raiders team. As this young man sits down in the chair, Coach Smith will toss them the football and say, Why do you want to play football for this team? I remem ber one young man this past season who sat in the chair and answer ed the question, I want to share his response with you now. With tears in his eyes this young man looked around the room and said, Coach, this is my family and they are all I have! As the tears streamed down his face he told of the problems he was facing in his life and how hard life was on him, as well as his sin gle mother and brothers and sisters. Let me tell you, I was choked up, as was the r est of the room. Afterwards, I saw Coach Smith and his staff one by one comfort this young man. Thats one of the reasons I want to introduce the Raiders coach ing staff to you right now. Coach Smith is the head coach, Coaches Sander sfield (offensive line), Coach Pr octor (defensive line), Coach Williams (defensive coordinator), Coach Thomas (linebackers), Coach Cook (trainer), and Coach Evans (assistant coach). Coach Evans was not ther e the day I took the picture. I take my hat off to these men who sacrifice time with their families and friends to help shape and mold these young Raiders lives. Y ou gentle men may not get paid a million a year or get the r ecognition you deserve, but if it were not for men like you, the million dol lar coaches would not exist. Y ou coaches may never know what differ ence youve made in these young mens lives, but trust me, there isnt one kid on that team that you havent influenced for the better. Thank you coaches. Okay next week is the last game of the season, except for the playof f game which will be played at home. This weeks game is an out of town game, held in Orlando against First Academy. I think there will be a fan bus going to the game, but I wont know until Wednesday, at which time I will post it on the Putnam County Courier Journal Facebook page. Well that about does, it only two things left to say and that is, Congratulations Raiders for your dis trict championship and GO RAIDERS!Gary Woods, Lt. Col. of the United States Air Force-Retired, was the featured speaker at the October, St Johns River Chapter, Military Officer Association of America (MOAA) meeting. Woods told the members of his childhood love of flying and subsequent check out in a crop duster Stearman, to his successes as a Special Project manager for the Surgeon General of the United States Air Force. Chapter President Ken Hinton opened the meeting with Chapter Chaplin Bill Darden giving the invocation and then leading the chapter in to Pledge of Allegiance to the United States. New members Bud and Judy Surratt were welcomed. George Crawford reminded members that the chapter would march and ride as desired in the Veterans Day Parade being held Monday, November 11. We will meet at 0930 on Oak Street where it intersects with 11th Street. We will have one 1984 Cadillac Sedan and one rear seating pickup truck for riders. Marchers will carry the banner, and everyone, please wear your uniform, said Crawford. Any veteran regardless of rank is invited to walk or ride with the chapter. Fran Martin is order ing magnetic signs for the vehicles. Martin also outlined the January planning for the recruit new members newspaper ads. Treasurer Joff Filion reminded members the annual chapter dues of $25 can be paid now. Woods enlisted in the United States Air Force in 1956 and served as a medic. Upon discharge he entered the Univer sity of Georgia on the GI bill, joined the Army Reserve, and worked his way through college as a nurse. At graduation, he was awarded a commission in the US Army Reserve. In 1985, he was contacted by the USAF Surgeon General and requested to transfer to become a Special Project Officer. His mission was to resolve the severe problem of pilots aging, and requiring glasses by which to see all the instruments and switches scattered throughout every cockpit, including above the windshield. The flying crews instrument crosscheck required the ability to very quickly scan all flight instruments, and to provide flight control responses to movement of the aircraft. Woods mission included pilots and air crews of the USAF, the USAF Reserve and the Air Guard flight personnel. Second priority was those individuals who crewed the aircraft, but did not fly the aircraft. Both the US Navy and the US Army also had similar requirements and each service had a Special Project Officer assigned to resolve this dilemma. By 1988, this challenge had been met and over come by the use of special contact lenses, redesigned oxygen masks and flight helmets. Woods then took on the need for USAF Special Oper ations helicopter pilots and crews to operate at tree top level, total darkness and no light emitting from the aircraft. Night vision goggles that were in use then did not permit this mission need. By 1991, and the Desert Storm conflict against the Iraqi, the problem had been met also and overcome through newly designed, enhanced equipment and training. Mission complete! President Hinton announced the November meeting would be held on Tuesday, November 19, at Beef OBradys at the usual 11:30 a.m. time.Photo Special to the Courier Journal President Ken Hinton thanks Gary Woods for his outstanding service to the United States Air Force and our country. November 6, 2013 COURIER JOURNAL Section B I didnt come out too bad on my prediction a couple of weeks ago. The Red Sox and Cardinals would be in a seven game series with the Sox the winners. It was based on my preference only, because the clubs were so evenly matched. That was true for the rst thr ee games when the Cards split the rst two, then took game three in St. Louis. Strangely enough, it was the Boston pitching that prevailed from then on rather than that of the Cardinals. John Lester beat Wainright twice and John Lackey hung tough, leading game two then being pulled, only to see St. Louis rally for a close victory and then winning the nal game six out right. I really believed that the Cardinal pitching with W acha and Clark following Wainright would hold the Sox down, but that was not the case. Wacha, only 22, had an impressive game two win. He thr ew consistently in the 90s relying on his fastball almost entirely to blow batters out. Then when he got shaky with his control in game six, you saw what happened; the Red Sox got him out of there pretty quickly and basically coasted home in a 6-2 game. I guess you could say that the Red Sox pitching experience came out on top. Although, it was surprising that Lackey was so ef fective when he had some touch periods during the regular season. What he did against the Cards was to mix his speeds up coupled with excellent control. I was sort of surprised that he threw his fastball in the 90 mph range so often. This series was a case where the winner led their division throughout the year in what had to be the tough est division in MLB, established themselves as the best in the American League with a six game vic tory over the Detroit Tigers, no slouches for sure and never choked, but played as the favorites and won it all. Only the Y ankee dynasty of the 80s and 90s did that regularly. What happened this past Saturday in college football could be described as a mixed bag with surprise all over the place. I thought, however, that FSUs route of Miami was not a surprise and that Las Vegas had the spread of 20 points right. After all, Miami had to go into overtime a couple of weeks ago to beat Wake Forest, not exactly a top 25 ranked team. Miami was just overrated, just as the Florida Gators were, coming into the season. Unfortunately, the number eight ranking came late in the season when an 8-0 record that has everybody pumped up. The Seminoles toyed the Hurricanes for a half and led only by seven because of a couple of uncharacteristic intercep tions thrown by Jameis Winston. Believe me, this was a scrimmage for FSU during the last half and pr obably should have been called at the end of the third quarter. It wasnt and you saw what hap pened. Miamis top running back broke his ankle in the fourth quarter and is out for the year Kerry Dunning, who swoons over the Seminoles in her Palatka Daily News column (which should be titled as long as FSU wins, Im happy) would no doubt have a dif ferent take on the called at the end of the third quarter remark, and I wouldnt blame her. Floridas loss to Georgia was a pain ful one for me, the ever optimist when it comes to the Gators fortunes. I hate it when witnessing those Geor gia fans hop up and down as if they had hot coals in their britches. That means a sil ver britches victory is pending. During the last eight and a half minutes of Satur days game, when Georgia ran the clock out and prevented the Ga tors from handing them a fourth loss, I sort of lost it. One bright thing about the Gators play was the comeback mentality, which they displayed. No ex cuses. They lost to a better team on Saturday, but they could still become bowl eligible with a vic tory over Vanderbilt (which beat Georgia) and that other soft team just befor e the FSU game. On the other hand, South Carolina can be had and then theres that Tallahassee crew.
