This is a line from an offering hymn used in many churches, and that is what Id like to share with you. The South Putnam Christian Service Center continues to be blessed. For two Saturdays in November, with the permission of Larry Court, manager of Winn Dixie, several volunteers sat outside the store to accept donations of food items, as well as monetary gifts, to be shared with many of our neighbors in need. We thank Winn Dixie, and we thank the many contributors for their generosity. On Sunday, November 24, the Community Thanksgiving Service was hosted by Saint John the Baptist Catholic Church. We were led in prayer and worship by Fr. Rudy Godinez, Pastor Sam McCoy, Pastor Ralph Young, and Pastor Joyce Gulliford. Barbara Doran and Noni Garcia led us in song and praise. The gathering music was provided by the Spanish Praise Band, and they closed the service with all of us singing Somos Una Iglesia (We are one Church). Under the direction of Dee Goolsby, the Ladies in Harmony sang two spirit filled songs, and the Faith Ringers and Chimers, led by Carol Stuart, never cease to amaze me with the clarity and sweetness of their music. After the service, the parish hall was beautifully decorated and we shared in refreshments and fellowship, hosted by the Altar and Rosary Society ladies. Sincere and grateful thanks to each and every one of you for being a part of this community service. We are truly blessed to be a blessing to others. Our mailing address is P. O. Box 744, and our physical address is 219 Summit St., Crescent City. Our phone no is 386-698-1944, should you want to call us. We are open Tuesday and Thursday, 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. We will be closed from Friday, December 20 through Monday, January 6, so that our many dedicated volunteers may enjoy this glorious Christmas season. Our sincere thanks to all of the community for your loving support and please continue to pray for this ministry to be faithful to its mission of service. Merry Christmas from all of the SPCSC volunteers.

Quintavious Lewis Third grade: Mrs. Newbolds class Students at Middleton-Burney Elementary School, in Crescent City, were asked the following question by 3rd Grade teacher Tasha Newbold: Eyes Eyes Many times I have been asked, What made you decide to raise chickens? At first it seems like an odd question. After all, by the age of three, everyone knows birds lay eggs and eggs are good to eat. It seems sort of like asking, What made you decide to grow tomatoes? My normal answer is that we raise them for eggs and meat. Eggs and meat really are normal. I recall reading that over 90% of the worlds humans eat animal products if they can obtain them. The eggs and meat answer results frequently in someone asking; How can you kill something you raised? For a few weeks I have been mulling all of the reasons I raise chickens and they are very hard to prioritize. All of the reasons are significant. I think this might be a teachable moment. So, grab a cup of coffee and stay with me. I love the outdoors. I love morning, evening, the changing light, clouds, wind, plants, changing weather, the seasons of plants and sounds of crickets, frogs, birds, owls and cicadas. We moved to South Putnam County because of the outdoor recreation, including the State Parks, the St. Johns River, and Ocala National Forest. Our newly pur chased home had chickens roaming the neighborhood and we quickly learned to enjoy their company. Afternoons in a lawn chair were frequently accompanied by soft sounds of hens and chicks. They feel safe near humans when we are quiet and still. Over time, all the chickens were eaten by the local predators and we missed them. My husband and I said we would love to raise chickens when we get to the point where we did not need to travel any more. Life has many chapters and that chapter arrived. We are at that time and place where home is our favorite place. I studied a multitude of methods and found that different things work in different places, for different people and different prefer ences. I have always understood the concept of you are what you eat. I want my chickens to be happy and healthy, so the food they produce is also healthy. Reluctantly, I quit using round-up and chemical insecticides in the yard. That was about 2010. Are you aware that herbicides affect the ability to uptake nutrients? Think about it. I learned about stocking densities. Chickens are really nasty if they are crowded. They dont like it that way, but they normally have no say in the matter. My 14 birds move around a acre. They do not live in filth. They have access to pasture daily, and I personally clean their coop every morning at daybreak so they have a really clean place to lay their eggs and to sleep the following night. They get really excited when we move their floorless coop and when we move them to clean pasture using electric poultry net. During daylight hours, they are outside of the coop unless it rains or they go inside to lay an egg or rest. The average chicken produced for the grocery store never sees sunlight, the sky, bugs, or grass. That is extremely unnatural. My birdies are excited every day to come outside and play. They love to run and they really do play. This increases their happiness and production of vitamin D. Since I am outside to tend to them, every day at dusk and dawn, I produce more vitamin D as well. Watching them and being outdoors increases my happiness. My chickens are protected from predators using hot wire and poultry net. If I did not protect them, a bear, otter, coyote, or raccoon would be happy to eat them. I assure you the day they turn into a happy meal is much kinder, quicker, and more humane than it would be if a predator had his way. Oh, homemade broth has improved my bone density. I have the test results to show it. My eggs are beautiful. The shells are much stronger than the standard grocery egg. They are delicious. My breakfasts, casseroles, ice cream, bread, cakes, custards, and eggnog are wholesome and they do not include preservatives or fillers. I cook almost everything from scratch. I want the highest quality ingredients I can get. If I raise meat and eggs myself, I know what the inputs were. Regardless of what the experts say about cholesterol, our blood test results are excellent. Because of the crowded situation in most chicken houses, most livestock are fed low levels of antibiotics to keep them from getting sick. My chickens have never had antibiotics. Most people think the super bugs, like MRSA, are from overuse of antibiotics on people. It is also from the use of antibiotics in livestock feeds. Every one of my birds is socialized with me and my husband on a daily basis. They have been frequently held and hand fed all of their lives. They come eagerly to see us when we come outside. We watch them play and interact and we watch for any signs of socialization stress or illness. Certain birds actually show us they want to be held and petted. The one-on-one is a good way to take quick action if something is wrong. Being proactive keeps the flock healthy. I have fabulous compost for my garden and my fruit trees are thriving without commercial fertilizers. Instead of paying for fertilizers and insecticides, I pay for chicken feed. Did I mention that chickens eat bugs?! A few years ago, an oncology surgeon encouraged me to eliminate unfermented soy from my diet. The consumption of unfermented soy has been strongly linked to cancer. Almost all commercial animal feed and most processed food includes soy. By raising my own chickens, I can opt out of feeding my chickens soy and I can significantly reduce my familys unfermented soy intake. This may be the most important reason I raise chickens for eggs and meat. My birds have a much superior quality of life and health than the ones someone else butchers for the grocery. I care for them and they feed me. I get top quality food in exchange for top quality care. If we eat meat, someone must butcher it. Why not me? Are we such hypocrites we can deny the existence of death if someone else performs the task? Chickens are part of the joy of my days. If you would like to learn more about why or how I raise chickens, let me know. I am in the phone book.

Thanksgiving morning everyone was up (grum bling) to help carry food to Pomona Park Com munity Center for their Thanksgiving dinner for some of our homeless. We all pitched in to help Dr. Bonnie Harrison and Car rie Ann, set up chairs, tables, and decorations. Thanksgiving dinner was great. I furnished the turkey and each member could choose one item for the menu. My boys chose their Dads favorite, acre peas and Mexican corn bread. Other items were cr eamed corn, fried okra, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, mac aroni and cheese, cranberry sauce, pecan and pumpkin pies, Death by Chocolate, and others. It reminded them how lucky and thankful we should be to have a family and food to eat. I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving; I apologize for this column being mostly about my family. Please send me your news and photos to the email listed below my pic ture on this page. I will be glad to include them in the weekly column. God Bless everyone. Day After Thanksgiving It was too cold to spend time on the lake, but we played games, watched TV and had an open house for neighbors and friends to drop in and vis it with the kids. Also took owers to Nicks grave and picked fruit at a friends grove. The boys were glad to see their cousin, Rick Rho den, who has always been a r ole model to them. Rhoden played pro fessional baseball for the Dodgers, Y ankees, Pirates, and the Texas Rangers. I may have left some out. He was, and is, a good golfer, and has won the Celebrity Tournament in Lake Tahoe a number of times and played some on the Senior Tournament. He now does some work for the Dodgers, working with form team pitchers. He and wife, Liz, live in Ormond Beach, and do a lot of traveling. Liz came loaded down with goodies and left overs. It was great to see them. Neighbors John and Elaine Edwards, and Irene Hundley, were some of the other folks who dropped by. We enjoy us ing the Edwards guest cottage when we have company. They are great neighbors.

Call us at 325-5800 Way Back When...With the beautiful weather we have been having recently, its hard to imagine the tem peratures reported in this article from The Putnam County Courier-Journal on December 13, 1962! Severe Cold Weather Damages Fruit, Trees Extent of the damage caused by the extremely cold weather Wednesday night may not be ful ly determined until spring, accor ding to experienced citrus growers, who look upon the freeze as a calamity, which has practically ruined the fruit crop and done extensive dam age to the trees. While cold weather plagued the commu nity for several days, it was Wednesday night that the tem perature dipped to a low of 18 degr ees. W. D. Mew, Sr., of the Snyder-Mew Packing Company, with 45 years experience in the citrus industry, said Thursday morn ing that this freeze is the worst he has seen, and pr obably is the most damag ing since the freeze of 1895. Accor ding to Mew, the citrus crop is practically a to tal loss. There may be some citrus salvaged, but this will be only a small part of the cr op. He re ports that it will be several weeks befor e the damage to the trees may be deter mined, and it may be spring befor e some begin to show signs of dying. In 1895, this area suffered its greatest damage, and most of the citrus trees per ished. In February of 1917, ther e was another damaging freeze, and then in 1957, just ve years ago to the day, there was a freeze with the temperature drop ping on December 12, to about 20 or 22 degr ees. Todays freeze left some in this area without water as pipes froze, cars were hard to start and at least two buses ar rived late to school. Lewis T reen, prin cipal of Crescent City schools, r eported that at his home, on Lake Crescent, the water froze out into the lake for about 25 feet. At the Thurman McCamey home, two sprinklers were left running Wednes day night to protect the fer ns growing beneath the orange trees, and the ferns were covered with ice. He believes the ice will save the ferns. A wind was blow ing Wednesday night, which my have helped some in pr otecting trees and crops. REITER INSURANCE AGENCY, INC.926 N.

CRES c C ENT CITYJohn TT homas Fetcko, IIIIII John Thomas Fetcko, III, 53, was born September 9, 1959, in Harlingen, Texas, to Pauline D. Fetcko and John Thomas Fetcko, Jr. His sudden passing was due to an airplane accident near Leesburg, December 24, 2012. He and his wife, Julie, were on their way to attend their annual Christmas Eve celebration with Johns family. John was a graduate of Fayetteville County High School, Fayetteville, Georgia. After completing his high school education, he put himself through mechanical and engineering technical school at night while working full time. Later, he and a partner built a successful engineering manufacturing company. J & M Laboratories was featured in Inc. 500 Magazine for three consecutive years as one of Americas fastest growing, privately owned companies. It was later sold and continues today as a division of a larger corporation in that industry. After selling his share of the company, John and Julie moved near Crescent City, in 1997. For the past 15 years, John enjoyed a semi-retired life as a resident of Eagles Nest Aerodrome Airport located six miles west of Crescent City. His greatest pleasures were ying, traveling in the Albatross and developing parts in his personal machine shop. John was a fun-loving husband, friend and neighbor, enjoying holidays and birthdays with his immediate family. He was a very private person who valued the people in his life. He will be missed by all his best ying buddies, and his absence is especially felt at the weekly Seven Deuce Poker Group, where he was a regular participant. John learned to play poker while spending time during his childhood with his grandmother, Mar go, who, ironically, passed away on an earlier Christmas Eve. For all of us who shared Johns life, we will greatly miss his sense of humor and friendship. He was very generous and always ready to help wherever and whenever he could. Much of the wealth of knowledge he possessed was acquired from self-taught life experiences, personal strength, and for titude. John is survived by his loving wife of 35 years, Julie Ann Fetcko, parents, Pauline D. Fetcko and John Thomas Fetcko, Jr., sister, Traci Anne Matheney and husband Rick, numerous nieces, nephews, and relatives of Julies family. Also, many friends and acquaintances, both state side and abroad, will all feel the empty space that John once lled.

Normally Saturday morning is my day to re lax and maybe do a little fishing with my kids on the St. Johns River but not this past Saturday. This Saturday morning I was up and out the door by 7 a.m. because this was the first time that South Putnam County Soccer team would play in a tournament. I arrived at the field just before 8 a.m. The playoffs were not supposed to start until 9 a.m., but ther e were kids all over the place. There were little kids and big kids all running around kicking soccer balls, and getting ready for the playoffs. I swear I have the best job in the world because there is nothing better than watching a ton of kids have fun. I started off by tak ing group pictures when I came acr oss the Kill er Bees from South Putnam County. This is a team of 7 and 8 year old kids. I lined them up for the photo and then said, On three, I want you guys to give me a big smile. After I took the shot, a little girl in a yellow shirt said, Can we do a crazy picture? I replied, Sure, what do you have in mind, to which she replied, Like this, she then sucked her lips together and made like fish lips as she crossed her eyes. Well you know me, Im a sucker, so they all lined up and we took a crazy picture, as she called it. After the pic ture she said, See I told you I could do crazy! If you want to see the pic tures I have posted them on the Putnam County Courier Journal Face book page. I wish I had the little girls name, but they took of f running onto the field, maybe one of you can tag the picture. As the day progressed, South Putnam County racked up win after win and at the end of the day, the 7-8 year old Galaxy team would take first place, with most goals scored by Kyle Se gura. The second place spot would go to the Killer Bees. In the age group of 9-10, first place was tak en by the Real Madrid, and second place went to the Golden Eagles. In the age gr oup of 1114, the Red Light Team walked away with first place. The most goals scored for the tournament went to Fernando Jimenez. All the kids I mentioned wer e from the Crescent City area. Normally when I cover sporting events, I hear a lot of complaining from parents about how some team cheated or the referees didnt call a fair game, but that wasnt the case during these playoffs. In fact, I can only recall one person who complained. At the end of the day I was glad I had chosen to cover this soccer event. You know these events are set up to help build character in our kids, as well as keep them off the streets. The South Putnam Soccer teams need our help with fund ing, so if you have a little extra, please contact Bonnie at the Putnam Family Fitness Center 386-649-8784. Remember if you have little ones between the ages of 7-14, and they want to play baseball or softball, they need to be registered before Friday, December 20. Soccer registrations will start in January for next season. Wednesday, December 4, at 3 Bananas, there were 14 teams playing. The rst place winners, who received a $50 gift certicate, was Bubbas & Floozies whose members are Fran Mara, Will Parker, Kevin Ryan, and Wright and Marianne Simmons. The second place team, who received a $30 gift certificate, was Como Cats. The third place team, who received a $20 gift certicate, was Couch Potatoes. Shake & Bake was fourth, and 3 Amigos was fth. The Beer Round was won by Elvis I. Dont delay, get a team together and play today! Trivia Night is every Wednesday at 3 Bananas, starting at 6 p.m., and new teams are always welcome. I dont have as much room this week, because there is a lot going on with the holidays. If you havent been reading S.J.s story, you will have to check on the Putnam County Courier Journals Facebook page to catch up. Let me pick up where I left off last week. As we started crawling out of the house, the winds started blowing really hard, and all of the sudden boards started falling. I knew at any second this house was going to fall. We were about 20 feet from getting out of the house when I felt the floor start to cave in. I could see S.J. make it to the opening as I fell through the floor, hitting the soaked muddy ground underneath the house. I thought, Im not going out like this! Let me tell you this, at 52-years-old, I was flat out moving! Up and out of the hole I went, only to be facing S.J. head on. He turned around and saw me fall through the floor, and was coming back to help me. Ok, here we go again. This guy can hardly walk and hes going to risking more damage to his body, maybe even death, to help me out. As S.J. sat on his makeshift chair, which was an old stump, and I on a log just across from him, I asked S.J., What were you planning on doing, coming back into the house like that. Are you nuts? S.J. replied, I guess cover the hole you had fallen in to! I really dont have anything to lose and you do. Then he said, Yeah I guess that wasnt a good idea, huh? I answered, No you could have been crushed, to which he replied, No. Can you imagine what the other news people would have said if they found me laying on top of you in a hole like that! Then he laughed. Over the next few hours, I would ask S.J. several questions, one of which was, How differently do people treat you now that you are homeless, than before your accident? S.J stated that before the accident, a few people had used him, but for the most part people treated him with respect. Now they treated him like he was white trash. S.J. had told me that when he was homeless and living in Palatka, people would ride by and yell nasty things at him, but the one that hurt the most was when people would yell, Get a job! He mentioned walking down the streets in town and how people would cross the street and walk on the other side. Then once past him, they would cross back over and continue on their way. He said, I think they thought I was going to ask them for money or something because I know they didnt think that I would rob them. Im only 5. S.J. told me of four people that helped ruin his life and how it seemed some people, just liked to pick on little people especially him. At first I thought he might be exaggeratDecember 11, 2013 COURIER JOURNAL Section B Travis Roberts Staff Writer & FACES PLACES Every Story Needs a Villain I dont have as much Travis Roberts Sports Writer Photo by Travis Roberts S.J. navigates through his home, which could fall at any moment.

Every story has a vil lain, and S.J.s is no different. I was about to leave town for a few days to go visit some friends of mine on the other coast, and decided to call S.J.s mother to see how he was doing. Mary answer ed the phone and in a frantic voice she said, The police are on their way here! Why? I asked. She said, There is this man here who claims his brother owns the proper ty S.J. has been living on, and he said he wants him arr ested for trespassing! My reply was, Ill be there in 30 minutes. As I was driving down the last stretch of road to where S.J. is living, I could see a Sheriffs car, another white vehicle, plus S.J.s mothers car on the side of the road. As I opened the door to get out, I showed the officer my press I.D. and asked what was going on. The officer informed me that the man standing by his vehicle had told him that the property S.J. was living on was his brotherin-laws property and he wanted S.J. removed. I let the officer know I had been to the coun ty and pulled the plot surveys, and the pr oper ty did not belong to his br other-in-law. With that information, the man fi nally came clean and admitted it really wasnt his br other-in-laws property. I showed the officer and the man pictures of S.J.s foot right after the accident, and pictures after the doctors had operated on it. Then I explained I was writing a story on S.J. for the paper and trying to get the community behind him, and may be even to raise enough money to get him a new foot. The of ficer said, Let me see if I can pull up the property and find out whom it belongs to, then I will make my decision based on the law. As the officer was sit ting in the car, the man said to me, I dont care what he says; Im going to do everything in my power to get that homeless guy thrown off that pr operty! The officer got out of his car and informs the man, There is nothing I can do to throw S.J. off the prop erty because he hasnt committed a crime and until the pr operty owner tells me he wants him removed, theres nothing I can do! The man says, Well theres something I can do, at which point the officer asked him to leave. This has got to be the coolest Deputy Sheriffs in Putnam County. The whole time all this is going on, I can hear S.J. asking his mother and my camera girl, Am I going to jail? I havent done anything wrong, have I? Why does he want me to move? Im not both ering anyone. All I want to do is go home. Momma, can I go home to my tent now? Please. For five minutes I had listened to this villain tell me and the officer how he was in the ser vice and retired from the military, only to listen to him in the same sentence tell us how he wanted this homeless guy thr own back out on the streets. Oh, I forgot to mention how he said he was going to sue me if I put this in the paper. Normally I wouldnt print a reply or comment to anyone in an article, but being me, I cant help it, so here is my reply to you sir: I am a writer and a reporter, and yes, I could put your name and ad dress in my article if I want to. I chose not to be cause I respect the men and women who serve our country, and I would not want to associate you with them. Why did you go into the military? I have many friends who have served this great country of ours and they went to war like my grandfather, uncles and other family mem bers to protect people like S.J.! He is not the villain, you ar e! He is your fellow American. This was only a few days after Thanks giving when you tried to have S.J. thr own off a piece of property that you dont even own, and in fact, you live way down the road from him. Have you forgotten that this very week back in 1621, people helped each other out and that start ed this great nation we live in? You sir, are one of the reasons that our country is in the shape it is in now! I dont work for the Putnam County Cou rier Journal; I am a free lance writer and reporter. I have my own oath that I have taken, and that is to pr otect people like S.J. from people like you. S.J. doesnt live in the woods because he chose to. He lives there because he lost everything in an accident. Do you not have a heart? You sir, make me sick to my stomach, and in fact, I would rather have a thousand friends like S.J. than one like you! The reason I didnt put your name in the paper is not because I fear you will sue me, its because I fear that people would show up at your house, period! After everyone had left, S.J. asked me if he was in any trouble. When I told him no, that he could go back to his home in the woods, he gave me the biggest hug I have ever had. People, S.J. isnt the enemy. He is our brother and we, as American citi zens, need to take care of our own. I only have two mor e articles left in this series and I want to thank all of you who are helping get S.J.s story out there. Next week I will tell you about S.J.s doctors vis it and how he only has a short time befor e the pad separates from the bottom of his foot, and leaving him in danger of bleeding to death. Thanks for reading S.J.s story.

Box 745, Pomona Park, FL 32181 to import, possess, and transport triploid grass carp for the intended purpose of stocking Lake Broward, in Putnam County Florida. The intent of this stocking is to control the excessive growth of the invasive exotic plant Hydrilla. The permit authorizes the stocking of 960 fish. The Commission feels that this stocking rate is appropriate for the desired level of control of the target plant species. The application is available by contacting Rhonda Howell at (352) 357-2951 during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, or by email to Rhonda.howell@myfwc.com. If your substantial interests are or will be determined by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions action or proposed action stated in this notice, you may petition for an administrative hearing in accordance with sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The petition must conform to the requirements of Rule 28106 Florida Administrative Code and must be filed (received by the Clerk) in the Commission Legal Office at 620 South Meridian Street, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-1600, within twenty one days of publication of this notice. The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of filing. Under Rule 28-106. Florida Administrative Code, a person may request an enlargement of time for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. The request must be filed (received by the Clerk) before the end of the time period for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. The failure of any person to file a petition or request an enlargement of time within twenty one days of publication shall constitute a waiver of that persons right to request an administrative hearing under Section 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statues. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will only be at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106, Florida Administrative Code. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Commissions final action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the Commission have the above right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. Mediation under Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, is not available for this proceeding. 12/11/13 LEGAL NOTICE NOTICE OF APPLICATION FOR TAX DEED NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN, that US BANK AS C/F FL DUNDEE LIEN INV L the holder of the following certax deed to be issued thereon.
