The town of Welaka kicked of its annual Christmas celebration this past Saturday. Beginning with the First Annual Welaka Winter 5K Walk/Run at 8 a.m. Christmas was in the air, literally, as local pilots preformed several fly overs to kick of the Christmas Parade, over the crowded parade route on County Road 309. The sounds of sirens, Christmas songs and shouts of Merry Christmas filled the streets as children scurried to pick up candy thrown by parade participants. After the parade, festivalgoers gathered at the Town Hall Pavilion to meet Santa and Mrs. Claus, and to receive toys donated by Toys For Tots. The celebration wound down that afternoon around 5 p.m. with the lighting of the town Christmas tree and ended at 6 p.m. on the St. Johns River with a lighted boat parade.Palatka As the result of a joint investigation involving the Putnam County Sheriffs Office and the Palatka Police Department, a Palatka man has been arrested for two counts of armed robbery. The robberies occurred at the Kangaroo Food Store located at 1205 State Road 19 and the Kangaroo Food Store on Crill Avenue in the West Gate Plaza on Friday, December 6. Clydven Terrance Jackson, 24, was identified in the surveillance video obtained at the Crill Avenue location by family members, who saw the video on agency Facebook pages. On December 10, Jackson was located and interviewed by detectives from the Putnam County Sheriffs Office and the Palatka Police Department. At the conclusion of the interview he was placed under arrest for the two robberies. He is currently being detained in the Putnam County Jail without the benefit of a bond. Investigators are currently identifying the second individual involved in the robberies and an additional arrest is expected. This is still an active investigation and additional information cannot be released at this time. Future releases will be provided when infor mation becomes available.

There were around ten boats in the parade and they were decorated beautifully. If I had to pick a winner, it would be very hard to do. This parade was put on by the Yacht Club and they sure deserve thanks. I know it had to be hard work to do all that decorating. Thanks a bunch for the nice show! One other thing is on my mind. Sunday evening, we were coming into town and it was dark. I was amazed at how pretty our small town looked. I guess you can tell I dont get out much after dark. The little Christmas trees on the poles were all lit up. They showed up even more with all of the street lights on. Any one who drives through our town has to be impressed. I think our city is getting better than ever! Nancy C. Miller Crescent City Now Accepts Through a Childs EyesI would like to have a book for Christmas.Laura Vargas-SotoSecond Grade: Ms. Redloffs classA sonic tablet to play on.Pedro CampousanoKindergarten:Mrs. Links class If you could have anything for Christmas, what would it be?I would like an iPhone for Christmas.Lizeth Guevara-EspinoThird grade: Ms. Smith and Mrs. Knudsens class I was thinking of a blue case for my iPod. Its at K-Mart.Hannah Cox First Grade: Ms. Griffiths class A Christmas tree. Ricardo JimenezRamirez Third grade: Ms. Whites class Students at Middleton-Burney Elementary School, in Crescent City, were asked the following question by 3rd Grade teacher Tasha Newbold: Eyes Eyes Martin, my colleague, said, Your bike is so ugly, I want you to ride at least 100 yards away from me so no one knows I know you. Its not that ugly, I said. It is that ugly, he replied. We were 20-years-old, living and working in New York, and bikes were our only means of transportation. After my previous one was stolen, I bought an ugly girls three speed that was stuck in third gear. It only cost $6, it was never stolen, even when I didnt lock it up, and, most importantly, it always worked. Sometimes trying to get it moving with it in third gear was a challenge. If I started from a full stop, I could hardly press the pedals. But I found out that if I ran alongside of it, and then jumped on, I would have enough momentum to get it moving more easily. This embarrassed Martin even more, and I found that he did try to ride a good distance ahead of me. When we would end up being stopped at the same stoplight, intersection, or the like, and then be ready to start again, he would try to take off quickly so he could put some distance between us. He continued to tell me how ugly my bike was, and I continued to tell him it wasnt that bad. The first Sunday I rode it to church, I left it leaning against the fence, as usual. One of the members of the congregation came into the meeting we were attending. I think I have just seen the ugliest bike in the world, he said, and it has been abandoned by the church fence. Without disclosing that it was mine, I asked, Why do you think it was abandoned? Well, he replied, Im sure no one in their right mind would ride something that ugly, and we are a church, so someone probably left it as a donation to charity. Thats not a donation, Martin told the man. Thats Howards bike. Later that week, Martin and I had a meeting with other young men and young women our age. We arrived early, and Martin suggested that I park my bike on the back side of the building so no one would see it. I reluctantly agreed, and took it out back. I leaned it against the fence near where the dumpster was sitting. Just before our meeting started, one of the other young men came in. You wouldnt believe what I saw out back, he said. It has to be the worlds ugliest bike. Someone put it by the dumpster. Apparently, they wanted to throw it away, but couldnt get it up in, so I did. My heart started to pound. As I ran to save my bike, I heard Martin laughing as he called after me, Howard, it is that ugly! I climbed into the dumpster and lifted my bike out. By the time I climbed back out myself, my clothes were less than sanitary. I dropped to the ground, turned around, and there was the whole group. Martin had led them out to see my bike. Howard, dont tell me you ride that bike, the guy that threw it away said. Its not that ugly, I replied. Martin nodded. It is that ugly. Later that week, Martin and I were out working. A little child, who was about eight-years-old, came up to me. Hey, Misser, did you buy dat bike or steal it? he asked. I bought it, I replied. How much did you pay for it? I paid six bucks, I told him. He shook his head. Man, you need to go home and let yo mamma slap you. You got ripped off. Martin grinned and said, It is that ugly.Letter to the Editor The Great City I Live InTo all the wonderful folks in Crescent City: Mrs. Claus and I actually wanted to stay in your precious little town. The hardest part of leaving was convincing our elves and reindeer to come back to the North Pole with us! I dont think weve ever been in a more exciting and fun parade. It was thrilling to see all the parents and children lining the streets and sidewalks, and that they then had enough energy left to come to the park and visit with us in person. How FUN you all were! I hope you enjoyed visiting us as much as we enjoyed visiting with everyone. We were also tickled by our hosts, Mayor Joe Santa, Patrick Kennedy, and the enthusiastically helpful Crescent City employees. They introduced us to so many WONDERFUL PEOPLE!! The citizen-volunteers from the Crescent City Celebration Committee created the two day merriment side by side with your (also tireless) Womans Club. These individuals impressed me most, because their work was, as mine is, a labor of pure love. As a group, these volunteers requested I not mention their names. They want, not credit for themselves, but to demonstrate how caring residents can expand the wonderful, distinctive heart and soul of Crescent City and your surrounding communities. This was also true of the dancers, performers, musicians, vendors, church groups, artists, and owners of the horses who thrilled so many of you. The contributors are too numerous to mention (Irwin). Their love and genuine kindness is what happens when people bigheartedly gather together to bring joy to the lives of others. That is what Christmas means here and all around the world. I hope each of you open your hearts to love and cherish one another. Mostly, I hope we will be invited back in 2014!! Love to you all,Santa and Mrs. Claus Thank You For Inviting Us

The Beautication Committee is in charge of the judging.Congratulations EleanorAt the State Master Gardeners Conference in Kissimmee, Eleanor Flood, of Lake Como, was presented with a 30-year award for her service in the Master Gardeners program. Other awards were presented for years of service, but no others for 30 years. Different train ing sessions took place during the conference. Ellie has been our own Master Gardener since we moved here 30 years ago, and needed help in changing from Texas grass and plants to Flor ida growth. Thanks Ellie for all your help through the years, from all of us! Last Meeting The Bass Capital Sams #99 Camping Club closed its books. It nished out with a luncheon, and do nated all leftover funds to Operation Smile. The gr oup met at the Lake Como Community Center for a farewell party. Twenty-ve or more members, spouses, and friends met to share memories, pictures, and camping tales. My hus band, Nick, was Wagon Master for many years. W e attended rallies, meetings, and quite a few blue grass festivals, mixed in with the meet ings. None of the original members are still alive, so maybe they are having their own camping club in heaven. God bless. Christmas in Our Area The weekend of De cember 6, 7, and 8, was very busy for Cr escent City and the surrounding area. There were vendors, booths, games for childr en, a boat parade, pony rides, which were very popular, and music at Eva Lyon Park Friday evening. Then Saturday included all the same events, with the addition of a parade down Sum mit Street, and beautiful weather. Sunday was the Crescent City Womans Club annual T our of Homes. The refreshments at the Club House always draw raves. Vicky Strickland and her crew of workers were in charge. The trol ley is a big hit with folks who dont want to drive and try to nd parking places. The beautiful nativity scene and Alice McCoys decorative touches at the Presbyterian (Manse res idence) were lovely. The spiral stair case and lovely decorations were the talk of the view ers. Joyce Johnston, from Jacksonville, took pictures of the upstairs to show her friend Cathy Grant, who did not want to tackle the stairs. The Duke-Watson house was lovely. The view from the front is spectacular. Mr. and Mrs. Claus (Bob and Deborah Spe reno) showed off their beautifully decorat ed porch while taking a br eak from the North Pole. Santa even built his own wooden sleigh, which he and Mrs. Claus rode in at the parade. The group stopped by and saw Allan Frasers train display. It was quite amazing. The Church of Je sus Christ of Latter-day Saints was a beautiful building. The sound of Branch Manager Darius Trunks wife Alicias love ly voice singing Christmas carols could be heard. Everyone seemed to enjoy the tour and the beautiful weather. Mayor Joe Santa and wife Charlotte were very involved in the Christmas weekend. Im sure Char lottes dad and grand dads (former mayors) would be very pleased to see her involved in making Crescent City a great place to live. Park Elves Megan and Brittany Jones, great nieces of Di ane Sykes, volunteered to work as park elves to help keep Eva Lyon Park clean during and after the festival. They also made and sold brace lets at the Womans Club table, and donated the proceeds to the Crescent City Celebration Com mittee. Thanks for the help! Talent Needed The Crescent City Womans Club will hold their Women in Music and Art program on Sunday, January 12, 2014, at the Howe Me morial Methodist Church Fellowship Hall. Anyone with talent of any kind, from singing, poetry, painting, playing instru ments, or comedy, please call Chairman Myra Lord at 386-559-3126 with your information. S.J.s Story My family asked me to send them copies of the paper with S.J.s story written by Travis Rob erts, the Putnam County Courier Journals sports writer. Someone asked about donations, too. Im sure if you sent those to the Putnam County Cou rier Journal, c/o Travis Roberts, he would get them.

A4 OUR TO WN Years Ago...74 years agoDecember 21, 1988 Outlying Areas Hit 25 Degrees As Cold Snap Blows In Fern growers ran their pumps and sprinklers about 18 hours over Saturday and Sunday nights in an effort to ward off damage from the winters first hard freeze. South Putnam low temperatures ranged from 25 to 33 degrees, depending on location, on both nights. Winds were absent, contributing to heavy coatings of frost.25 years agoDecember 17, 1937 Building Program Has Begun In Park The week the building program for another tennis court, croquette courts and shuffle board was officially started under the direction of Clayton Frank, Chairman of the Committee from the Chamber of Commerce sponsoring the improvements in Eva Lyon Park. December 19, 1963 Two Armed Men Hold Up Handi Way Market Two armed men with their faces hidden by stockings pulled over their heads, walked into Millers Handi Way store on Summit Street at about 9:45 Sunday evening, demanded cash, and made away with between $500 and $600 in currency and silver. They made their getaway in a car parked a block or so away, and so far police have been unable to locate them.50 years ago 10 years agoDecember 17, 2003 Police Department Updates Its Fleet The Crescent City Police Department recently received three brand new vehicles.

Following high school, Rabbit was offered the opportunity to play football at the University of Geor gia (Florida did not eld a team in 1944 due to the war). Rabbit once again excelled and following the 1947 Sugar Bowl, received a pro offer ($500 signing bonus and $5,000 per year) to play in the NFL for the Chicago Cardinals.

He served as head coach at Palatka High School from 1952 to 1963, when he accepted the position of head recruiter and running backs coach at the University of Florida, under Coach Ray Graves.

Commissioner Harris also recognized Becky Slobodian for being voted Putnam County Volunteer of the Year in 2012 and for her contributions to the community Haven Hospice reaches out to Putnam County and the surrounding communities on a consistent basis to raise awareness for end-of-life care; however, during National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, Haven seeks to amplify these efforts. The proclamation celebrates and affirms local government commitment to hospice during Novembers National Hospice Palliative Care Month. This proclamation is based on the document issued by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO). Normally, I would be writing something like, Ryne Beasley faded back in the pocket and fires one across the goal line to Timmy Rogers. Or I might be telling you how a group started a soccer league, but not today. Today I would like to set the record straight on five e-mails that I received last week. It seems that I am one sided when it comes to North and South Putnam County, well this is according to the e-mails that I received, and two women who cornered me in Wal-Mart Saturday morning. Some of this has to do with the soccer tournament that was played last weekend and how these parents dont think it was fair. Not only do these parents think this wasnt a fair tournament, but this group of parents thinks I only cover South Putnam County, because I live on the other side of the bridge. Let me address these two issues right now. First of all, I was covering the soccer game in Palatka last weekend, but if you noticed, I wasnt keeping track of the scores. I was there to watch a group of kids from both sides of Putnam County enjoy a day of competition and to watch them have fun. Secondly, I did not see any cheating going on. The referees were form Palatka, and I thought they did an outstanding job on calling the games. If you got upset because your childs team lost, well thats understandable. Hey we all want our kids to win, but to stand in a public place and complain in front of your children is just plain wrong! Shame on you! So why dont I cover any sporting events in Palatka? Well, thats any easy one to answer. No one ever calls to let me know whats going on. I would love to cover the sporting events in Palatka. So, if you have an event that you want covered, all you have to do is call the Putnam County Courier Journal at 386698-1644 and ask. Sometimes, in life we do some crazy things! Over the past few weeks, I have been telling you about a young man who has lost part of his foot and his calf muscle in a lawn mower accident six years ago. Last week, I told you about a villain who is trying to make sure S.J.s life is totally ruined by having him thrown off a piece of property he doesnt even own. I only have one more article after this one, and I hope that in the process you can help me get the word out about S.J. so that we can get him the help he needs so badly. About two weeks ago, I was on my way to cover the basketball game at the high school when my phone rang. Naturally, I picked up the phone and noticed that the call was from S.J.s mothers house. I had talked to S.J.s mother that morning, and I knew she was taking her husband to Jacksonville that afternoon because he has cancer. I thought maybe some thing had happened to S.J., so I answered the phone. Hello, I said, expecting to hear Marys voice on the other end, but to my surprise it was S.J. He said, Hi Mr. Travis. I replied, How are you S.J.? He said, Not so good. Im in a lot of pain today and I dont think I can take it anymore! Have you ever talked to someone and got that gut feeling they were about to do something really stupid? Well that was the feeling I had at that very moment so I said, S.J., why are you calling me? S.J. replied, Mr. Travis, do you think I will get in trouble if I cut my foot off with an electric saw? By the tone in his voice I knew S.J. was getting ready to cut off his foot. I knew that he was serious when he said, I was sitting in my tent thinking that if I cut my foot off then the paramedics would come and rush me to the hospital and the doctors could give me an artificial foot, so I wont have to deal with all this pain anymore. I walked to my mothers house and Im in the garage. Ive got a piece of an old shirt wrapped around my leg, and I have it tied real tight so that it will stop the bleeding. Do you think I will get in trouble with the police? Holy cow! I knew that if I said the wrong thing it was going to be disaster, so I said, Yes, you will! Look S.J., just dont do anything till I get there, ok! S.J. replied, I dont want to get you into any trouble, but maybe you can call the paramedics for me in case I pass out. At this point I knew I had to get there fast. S.J., I want you to take a deep breath and relax, Im on my way out there, and I swear if you cut your foot off I will never talk to you again! S.J. said, Ok Ill wait, then the December 18, 2013 COURIER JOURNAL Section B It is a fact that most changes in the head football position, of at least the largest schools, start with the discontent among the alumni, and it soon spreads to the athletic director, president, and so on. The end nally comes fairly soon thereafter. Sometimes there is a delay, but for the most part, once the process starts, it wont cease until the incumbent is ousted. This is one of the hazards of being a head coach of a FBS school, but it applies to others as well. The difference comes with the publicity connected with major football programs. So after the weird circumstances surrounding the departure of Urban Meyer from Florida, here comes the resignation of Mack Brown, head hon cho at U of Texas in Austin. Meyers departure has to be unique in the annals of football history, while Browns is somewhat more conventional, a la Tex as. Ive never heard of a coach (Meyer) who initially resigned because of a physical problem, then de cided to come back with the commitment to delegate more authority to his staff. This meant he took a considerable amount of pr essure of running a high-powered football team off his back. I believe Meyer went on to coach one mor e year before calling it quits, and we know what happened after that. After a year as a football talking head, he took a football job with far less pr essure. Yeah, right. Head man at Ohio State. This whole story has al ways puzzled me, but now I have gured it out. His wife did not like Gainesville, and being a native Ohioan, wanted to get back to her home state. As luck would have it, Jim Tressel ran into problems at OSU, and good ol Meyer reluctantly moved to Columbus. The Buckeyes lost to Michi gan State last Saturday and I thought, Here we go again. I hope his health holds up after that loss. Match that tale with Br owns resignation at Tex as. Brown came from North Carolina 16 years ago, and built a record of wins, second only to Darryl Royal at Austin. He had a forgettable record in 2012, failing to go to a bowl, but then rallied the tr oops to an 8-4 record this year. Only one of those wins being shellacking of Oklahoma. You would think this would take him off the hot seat, but with the press fanning the ames, the Board of Regents (or whatever the boards title is) and the Athletic Director already decided to give him a chance to resign effective after whatever bowl game in which the team participates. It does appear that this was way more painful for Brown than what has surfaced because he had to wait for all the platitudes coming from the dias behind which the board chair stood at the football banquet, and which sounded the end of his stay at Texas. I have never been a big Brown booster, partic ularly because he coached at North Carolina prior to abruptly leaving for Austin, but more about his manner of using the time-wor n phrases like, Weve got a bunch of dedicated young men.. and on and on. However, I think he was treated rather roughly for the overall record he had over those 16 years. If you dont know it already, the University of Texas is probably one of the richest of all schools of higher education. It owns vast oil elds in the southwest, among other assets, so it will be able to pull in almost anyone it wants to head the pro gram, because money is no problem. Rumor has it that they coveted Nick Sabin a month ago and, in fact, someone reported that Sabins wife was house hunting in Austin. So Alabama put that all to rest with an extension of his contract and a puny ol 7.1 million buck for six years, or some thing like that. Looks like Jimbo Fisher is on the short list at T exas. Do you think he would jump at an 8 million per annum offer? I think he just might do that. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I will be back in 2014, God willing. Ill leave with a bowl prediction that Auburn will upset FSU 42-40, and Duke will prevail over Texas A&M 28-27.

I made the 30 minute drive in 16 minutes flat, but let me tell you this, I had all kinds of thoughts running through my head for that 16 minutes. Thoughts like, will I find him in a pool of blood? Do I call the police? If I call the police, then they will lock him up. If I dont, and he bleeds to death, then its all my fault. With my heart about to pound out of my chest I pulled up in front of the house. To my relief S.J. was sitting inside the ga rage on the floor with the door half way up. The first thing I saw was no blood! S.J. was sitting there with this make shift tourniquet wrapped around his thigh and the skill saw sitting next to him plugged into an extension cord. I kicked the saw across the floor and said, Are you crazy? What were you thinking? Youre just go ing to cut your foot off? Then what, lay here and bleed to death? What if the paramedics couldnt find the house? S.J. said, Thats why I called you, I knew you wouldnt let me die. Youre my friend, and I knew you would tell them where I was at. Im not crazy Mr. Travis, Im just tired of living in pain. I want to be able to walk like normal people, and I know that if I cut my foot off, they will give me a fake foot and I will be able to walk again. As I sat there on the floor with S.J., he began to cry. All I could do at that point was to put my arm around him and make a promise that I hope I can keep. I promised S.J. that I will do everything that I can to get him into see a doctor and maybe some how get his foot, fixed but on the one condition that he never tries anything like that again. S.J. doesnt get the newspaper, and he has no Internet, so he cant see that there are people who want to help him, he cant see the hundreds of emails from people I get whose hearts bleed for him like mine. What S.J. didnt know was I had set him up an appointment with my family doctor in Welaka, who agreed to see him and that the Christian service center in Palatka had agreed to pay for his antibiotics. After I told S.J. the good news his spirits improved and he got a big smile on his face. The next morning, I picked S.J. up and took him to my doctor who looked at his foot. I could see in the doctors eyes that it wasnt good. The piece of skin that was tak en from S.J.s thigh six years ago is a different type of skin than the bottom of his foot; it is much softer and is starting to tear away from the rest of his foot. If this happens, and S.J is in the woods and unable to call for help, then he will more than likely bleed to death. Over the past five and a half years, S.J.s mother has been writing to the Social Security office, as well as to several congress people. The Social Securi ty still hasnt approved his disability or his Medicaid. Not only has his Medicaid not been approved, its flat out been rejected. A lot of letters have been written to our congress people, and their replies all say the same thing, We will look into it and get back with you. For five years? Give me a break. Next week, I will be giving you the names of some of these people in hopes that we can all con tact them and help S.J. get approved for the benefits that some get for no reason at all. I was able to take S.J. out of the woods this past weekend and let him meet a couple of you that have donated him some things, like a sleeping bag, canned goods, and a few basic items. I want to thank you guys for help ing him out, but S.J. has a long way to go. Why are we so intrigued with S.J and his story? Maybe its because we all have a little S.J. in us. Maybe we know that in any given moment, we could be S.J. Maybe its the fact that he is a member of our communi ty or maybe its just that 99% of us have two basic things in common, and that is compassion and love. S.J. is not crazy; hes just in more pain than most of us will ever expe rience in our lifetime. Tonight, S.J. sleeps in a tent while we sleep in our nice warm beds. His concerns arent that he will wake up when the alarm clock goes off. His fears are, will this chunk of skin tear off tomorrow and leave me bleeding to death in the woods alone? Next week will be the last article on S.J., unless you guys want to hear more on his story. I want to leave you with some thing S.J. said to me before I left that night he was going to cut off his foot. Mr. Travis, sometimes I wish they would have let me die the day my foot got cut in half, but I think God has a purpose for me. You know, Im glad he let it happen to me instead of someone else. Its re ally not so bad living in the woods. The rats and bugs are not out to kill me. Most people never get to see how rats and bugs live and how they have to survive. Im just grate ful to be alive. When the rats and bugs eat my food I dont get mad because they need to eat too so I help them out. As I lay in my bed that evening, wondering if S.J. would make it through the night, I couldnt help hearing his words and think of how great this world would be if we could all have that same outlook on life for our brothers, sisters, neighbors, and even the people we dont know. This coming Saturday, I will be bringing S.J. to Crescent City, so you can meet him and see what myself and others have seen. I will announce the location on the Putnam County Courier Journal Facebook page before Friday. We are trying to find a location this week so please bear with us. I want to thank you for reading S.J.s story and hopefully we can help this young man.
