Were going to be late for the Pickle-ball game! Im only joking, but that was the first thought that ran through my mind when Bonnie Harrison at the Putnam Family Fitness Center called me up and asked if I would cover this new game being played at their facility. Harrison called me on a Saturday morning, and during our conversation, she ex plained the game to me, and said that they play every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning at 9 a.m. sharp. I told her I would be there as we hung up, and Monday morning, I wake up and its flat out cold outside. As Im driving my kids to school, the tem perature reads 34 degrees in my Jeep. I thought there was no way these people are going to be playing Pickle-ball; its too stinking cold outside. I pull into the marina where I live, and low and behold, one of my neighbors, who plays this game, is walking her dog. Good mornings were exchanged and then she said, So I hear youre coming over to cover the Pickle-ball game this morning! My initial thought was, Are you guys nuts, its 34 degrees out here! which is also what slipped out of my mouth. Mikie just laughed and I said, Ill see you there. When I pulled up at the tennis courts, behind the fire station in Pomona Park, I was expecting to see no one, but to my surprise, there were nine people out on the court, laughing and having a blast. Ive played sports all my life and have never heard of Pickle-ball. I was quite surprised to find out that it wasnt a new sport, but in fact had been around since 1965, when it was created on Bainbridge Is land, which is a short ferryboat ride from Seattle, Washington. The original purpose of the game was to provide a sport for the entire family, according to the co-inven tors, U.S. Congressman Joel Pritchard, William Bell, and Barney McCallum. In the beginning, it was played in back yards on a hard surface, in drive ways, and dead end streets. However, since the 70s, it is played in rec reational facilities, health clubs, and corporate fitness centers, and now at the Center. So what is Pickle-ball and how is it played? Well Im still a little confused on that part, but let me try to explain. Pickle-ball is played with a whiffle ball and a paddle. It is played on a tennis court with a net, but the boundaries are smaller. The paddle is similar to a ping pong paddle, but much larger. The game is played like tennis and ping pong at the same time. It is played much slower than either of these two sports, but unlike tennis and ping pong, the whiffle ball can go in any direc tion; you definitely need skill to control the ball. If you are looking for a sport that is just flat out fun, with a slower pace, then you might want to call the Center at 386649-8784 for more details. Or just show up at the ten nis courts behind the fire station in Pomona Park. Im sure they will let you play and even use a paddle. This is a great way to get in shape and have some fun.Travis RobertsStaff Writer What is Pickle-Ball? Photo by Travis Roberts Pickle-ball players from the Putnam Family Fitness Center meet every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning in Pomona Park for a fun workout. Frost Protection in FloridaIts no secret that we have been experiencing some colder than wel comed temperatures in Putnam County these first weeks of the New Year. While most of us are concerned about bundling up and finding the near est cup of hot chocolate, there are some whose full attention is focused on protecting the plants and trees that have no choice but to face the elements. With over 68 million cit rus trees and over 140 species of fern in Florida, theres a lot of maintenance and protection occurring all over the state to make sure none are lost with the presence of winter weather. During the month of January, Putnam Coun tians experienced tem peratures that most would consider freezing during the evening hours, when in reality, the county averaged 44.5 degrees as a low. With the occurrence of multiple cold fronts barreling through, citrus farmers and fern growers were on high alert during the entire month. Winter weather and freeze warning advisories were announced a handful of times for Putnam and the surrounding counties. When these advisories are announced, local farmers and growers must prepare their crop and prevent go ing through a hard freeze. On nights when there is the potential for a hard freeze, most Florida citrus farmers and fern growers depend on a microsprinkler system to protect their crop. These systems are designed to provide water to the entire block or grove at one time. Far mers will turn the system on when the air temperature is at 36 degrees. The sprinklers must be turned on before the temperature reaches 32 degrees because the sprayers can freeze up, resulting in the entire sys tem failing to protect. F armers keep their sprinkler running all throughout the night. Once the wet bulb temperature the temperature at which water, by evaporating into air can bring the air to saturation at the same temperature reaches 33 degrees, the system can be turned off with the confidence that the crops have been pro tected. The microsprinkler system can also be safely shut off if the air temperature has risen to between 40 and 45 degrees. Here in Putnam County, the low temperatures r eached below freezing a number of times, and many of these nights occurred consecutively. When these consecutive freezes occur, and if daytime temperatures do not reach above 40 degrees, farmers and growers must keep their systems running non-stop. The main concern with running the sprinkler for that long is water conservation. For those farmers who take that into consideration, systems can be shut off when the air temperature is slightly below 40 de grees, given there is not a severe wind. Unfortunately, shutting off the system when the temperature has not reached 40 degrees increases the risk of dam age from a freeze. This method is effec tive in protecting Florida citrus and ferns because most well water in the state is around 68 and 70 degrees. A small amount of sensible heat is provid ed to the crops when the temperatures drop below 32 degrees. Water is able to store a fair amount of heat due to having a high heat capacity. Anyone who has ever gone to the beach at night knows this to be true. The water is al ways significantly warmer than the sand at night. It takes longer for heat to diminish from water. Also, depending on the dew point, these sprinkler systems, on a calm night, can create a fog. Fog, giv en that it is dense enough and the water droplets are the proper size, acts like a blanket, thus slowing the rate of cooling. For those Floridians who do not have such a large crop to worry about, but rather have a few plants around their prop erty, there are very simple steps that can be taken to protect those plants from the frost. The simplest step is to bring any potted plants indoors for the night. For those plants that are root ed in the ground, some preventative measures are to apply a layer of mulch. The mulch acts as an insulator, trapping heat and moisture in the soil. Another solution is to cover your outdoor plants with something as sim ple as an old blanket. Be sure to remove the blanket in the daytime so the plant can receive sunlight and air. Finally, just like those who attend to large fields of crops, water your plants. The water will trap the heat, keeping your plant protected in below freezing temperatures.Sami MarshallCopy Editor Photo by Ashley Sheppard This picture was taken at an orange grove in Pomona Park Tuesday, January 27, at 6 p.m. The sun had shone on this grove all day, yet icicles still formed very early in the evening.

Liz Haynes Seville I dont know if anyone ever sees anything fun in want-ad type postings, but sometimes the personality of the person doing the posting really shows through. Between that, and the fact that sometimes the post probably doesnt come out quite like the person intended, the humor in them can brighten my day. I like to collect the ones that make me smile, and I thought Id share some of them with you. On Craigs List: Wedding table cameras. Purchased off tietheknot. com for $4.99 each, then husband forgot to bring them on our wedding day!!!! (Its still a touchy subject!) Still in the plastic, contains 400-speed film and a small tent-style instruction card. I would like these gone so I can get on with my marriage and not have to see them unused anymore. On Craigs List: Cow named Bessy. Would like to trade for cow of no name. Is full grown. Was grain fed and raised for meat, but made the mistake of naming her at the time we fed her as a calf from a bottle. If you have a similar cow to trade, will trade straight across. On freecycle: Our puppy died, giving away the bones. On freecycle: Free, talking doll. Freaks me out seriously. I cant take it in my house anymore, and I can fully blame my father and the science fiction channel. It plays peekaboo and my toddler loves it, but I cant keep it, seriously. I keep expecting it to look at me and say, Im talking, Jane. Please email for address. On freecycle: Free hen. Her companion hen is gone and she is depressed. She needs to be with other hens! I will not give her to someone who doesnt already have some! She is super sweet and amazingly tame because we raised her from like a week old. She is laying even in winter because we have had a heat lamp on her (but the heat lamp we are not giving away). You will need your own cage, however. We are keeping ours. I repeat, you cannot have our cage. ( I say this because people have stolen things I said were not up for grabs before.) We have a large feeder and a large waterer and a huge barely broken into bag of scratch for her, (but she likes the other feed better). Please call me to set up a time and get our address. Thanks. I am emotionally attached, so do not respond if you are wanting to kill her!!! I want her to go to a good home, maybe with kids who can love her, and I dont mean in a stew. A second posting on freecycle: To the Lady who got my Hen: Her long lost friend finally returned home. If you would like her as well, please call me. On Craigs List: Its a long shot but Im looking for the person who bought a pair of brown, felt sole wading boots from a thrift store in Idaho Falls. There were two pair of the same kind and I believe that you mismatched them and have two different sizes (as I do now). LOL Let me know and we can swap them out. On freecyle: Free, one night stand. Beautiful and in good shape. Well built with nice, smooth curves. Beautiful drawers. Not too old. Slim and light tan/blonde, though slightly greying from being in sunlight. Legs are beautiful, and top is, too. To reply, please call... A second posting on freecycle: All right, for all of you clueless idiots. A night stand is a little piece of furniture that goes by your bed, and I happen to have one of them. And it is in good shape, and well built. If you arent interested in furniture, dont call me!Ad PostingsRonnie Vaughn was born May 1, 1947, in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Growing up, he had great appreciation for the YMCA, as it gave him a place to go and be involved in its youth sports programs while having two working parents. After high school, he joined the Army. He served two terms in the Vietnam War, where he worked on helicopters. He received two Purple Hearts, amongst many other medals. One hot night in Vietnam, he went to the barrack tents and noticed quite a few people were not in there. After realizing it was too hot in there to sleep, he joined the others outside. After setting up his bed, the tents were all bombed by the Vietnamese, leaving no survivors, except for Ronnie. It was apparent that God had other plans for this man. After the Army, he went to work for GTE Residing in St. Petersburg. He began his first volunteer job coaching baseball, his favorite sport. He coached boys ages 14 to 15, beginning in 1968. He married his wife Darlene in 1970. He continued coaching until 1974. While coaching, his first daughter was born, and shortly after retiring his position, came the birth of his second daughter. In 1982, the family moved to Putnam County, and the following year, he started coaching. This time he began coaching his daughters teams, and continued to volunteer and coach all his grandchildren as well, for the next 30 years. He coached not only baseball, but soccer, football, basketball, and tennis as well. He volunteered for Babe Ruth, Pop Warner, Little League, and the Crescent City High School teams. Other than coaching, he umpired and refereed, without pay, all over the state. He was diagnosed with cancer in 1997. Once again, it was apparent that God had more plans for Ronnie. After fighting, and beating, this horrible disease, he knew he had a purpose and obligation to this lifetime. In addition to his dedication to his family and other sports programs, he volunteered and headed up all the sports you or your kids may have played for at the Crescent City YMCA. He felt the YMCA gave so much to him as a child that he wanted to give back. He was just as dedicated to the children. As his daughter, growing up in my home, we were taught no prejudices, as we always had a variety of different races and nationalities at our dinner table. The kids that needed rides to practices and games were always given a home-cooked meal before we left. Although he had a strong faith growing up as the grandson of a pastor, he did not care for attending services Sunday mornings. That was until he joined the South Putnam Church over nine years ago. After becoming a member, he preached the first five minutes of the service, giving weekly turning points and scripture. He was, once again, diagnosed with cancer in 2012. He fought strong for 13 months, until the Lord decided he had better plans for this man. He has done such an incredible job on earth, and although the story doesnt go on to say what these great plans are, I cant wait to find out part two of why the Lord took my father. I know they have to be great. There is no great adjective that does not describe Ronnie Vaughn, as he was truly the best husband, father, and man who has touched so many lives. You will continue to be loved and missed by all the lives you have impacted. I love you Daddy. Services will be held Saturday, February 8, at 12 p.m. at the South Putnam Church. He Served God, His Family, His Country, and CommunityValarie Brown Daughter of Ronnie Vaughn Chicken wings. Susan Rions-Mills Deleon Springs According to the National Chicken Council estimates that Americans will eat 1.23 billion chicken wings on Super Bowl Sunday. Thats enough to fill a football field 1,083,333 times, assuming chicken wings are three inches long on average.

A3 OUR TO WN Years Ago...75 years agoFebruary 8, 1989 Group Says Rezoning May Cause A Problem A regional planning groups report on a possible commercial rezoning in Crescent City appears to raise doubts about the action while not recommend ing either approval or disapproval. Crescent Citys City Commission last month referred a question over rezoning a 30-acre parcel along CR308 from residential to commercial. In letters received from the Northeast Florida Regional Planning Council, they noted that the proposed rezoning would create an isolated industrial zone unrelated to the surrounding area and increased traffic would adversely affect the nearby school and res idential houses.25 years agoFebruary 3, 1939 Sewing Room Plans About Complete Mabel Coughlin, County Supervisor for Womens Work for Putnam, was here yesterday afternoon and made further plans for opening the WPA sewing room for Crescent City and the vicinity. County Commissioners, some weeks ago, provided funds making $20 monthly available for buying some materials, a sewing machine and other items will be donated by local people to help provide employment for local women on the list to work. February 6, 1964 New Post Office Building Opened For Business Crescent Citys new post office building was open for business on Monday morning of this week, the move being made from the Warner building on Central Avenue over the weekend. A spacious lobby houses the post office boxes, while just off the lobby at the left is the room with the counter for stamp and money order sales and other postal services. Dedication services will be held at a later date even though the building is already in use.50 years ago 10 years agoFebruary 4, 2004 Sprague House In The Hands Of Locals As of Monday, February 2, it was evident that the Sprague House had been sold. Workers were busy clearing over grown vegetation and brush, and new owners Jeff Watters and Tim Asher were busy painting and cleaning out the interior of the former inn and restaurant. The plan is to make the Sprague House into a bed and breakfast, and have living quarters as well. They have decided to leave the restaurant as a memory and only serve breakfast. They hope to have the Sprague House Bed and Breakfast open with the next six months. The landmark was built in 1892 and received the name Sprague in honor of Crescent Citys first mayor, G.F. Sprague. Compiled from the Crescent City News, Crescent City Journal, Crescent City Courier Journal, Putnam County Courier Journal and other local news sources. 5 years agoFebruary 4, 2009 Rotary Awards Paul Harris Fellow Last week, Crescent City Rotarian Patty Boyd, was presented with a Paul Harris Fellow. Individuals may be recognized as Paul Harris Fellows for donations of $1,000 or more to the Annual Programs Fund, PolioPlus, or the Humanitarian Grants Program, or people who have had that amount contributed in their name. Boyd was recognized for the community service she has performed in the name of Rotary. Way Back When...The following article appeared in the February 4, 1960, issue of the Crescent City Journal. Good Things Happen When You Give Good things happen when you give. This is the slogan for the annual Red Cross fund raising drive. Col. Noble M. Coe, chairman of the Crescent City Chapter of American Red Cross, has announced that the local chapter will ask citizens for their help Sunday, March 20. A house-to-house canvas will be directed by Dave Austin, fund raising chairman. The objective of the annual Red Cross campaign is to obtain public support through contribution of funds needed to carry out the organizations work and the time and talent from volunteers, the keystone of all Red Cross programs. According to Stanley Warner, treasurer of the Crescent City Chapter, the goal this year will be $1,500. Half of the money collected will be used by the National Organization. The other half will remain here in Crescent City. Some of the benets which this community receives directly include: 1. A free rst aid class, conducted by Arthur Slate, science teacher of Crescent City High School. 2. A home service division headed by Carlos Preston, which takes care of wires for service leaves, condition reports of service men, grants of food for the needy and medical aid. 3. A blood bank, with Ruth Hay in charge. 4. A loan closet, which helped 32 families in this area last year. Addie Ryan is in charge. 5. Disaster relief, with Aldrich Peeples in charge. 6. Free swimming and lifesaving instructions, with Kelly Borgh in charge.

T ax-deductible gift adoptions from Save the Manatee Club cost $25 and include a biography and adoption certificate featuring the m anatee selected. See photos and a list of the manatees available for adoption on the Clubs website at http://www. savethemanatee.org/ adoptees.htm. Also included is a membership hand book filled with photos, facts and information, subscriptions to the Clubs official quar terly newsletter, The Manatee Zone, and the bi-monthly e-newslet ter, Paddle Tales, and a years membership in Save the Manatee Club. A personalized Valentines Day gift card comes with each adoption, and postage is free within the United States. Add an additional $10 to adoptions mailed to all countries outside the United States. A heart-shaped manatee ornament, perfect for Valentines Day, is included with every gift adoption of $35 or more, while they last. Save the Manatee Club is an international nonprofit conservation and manatee welfare organization co-found ed in 1981 by singer/ songwriter Jimmy Buffett specifically to raise the publics awareness about manatees and to get the public involved in manatee conserva tion efforts. Patrick Rose, the Clubs Executive Director says, has been the deadliest year ever for Floridas manatees, with unprecedented losses from exposure to a toxic red tide bloom in southwest Florida, and an unusual mortality event linked to algal blooms on the east coast. When we see an increase in manatee deaths, a big part of our job is to immediately ratchet up our education and outreach efforts to ensure that the public is aware of the many challenges we face and the part people can play in helping us protect the manatees and their aquatic habitat. T he manatee popu lation is estimated to be about 5,000 con centrated year-round in Florida. Human-related manatee deaths predominantly from boat strikes typically account for the larg est number of deaths where cause is known. Save the Manatee Club works to safeguard manatees by assisting with rescue, rehabilitation, and release efforts in America and abroad; helps to expand and protect the manatees winter warm-water habitat; obtains improved boat speed zones in areas frequented by manatees; and raises public awareness.

In last weeks issue, I answered some questions about pesticide usage, local growers, and improving nutrition. This week, I conclude my musings with questions and answers about livestock, far ming, and GMOs. Q: Isnt it gross; cleaning up livestock manure? A: I think cleaning the bathroom is gross, but it still must be done. Until WWII, most farms used manure for fertiliz er. After World War II, ammonia became mor e available, and by the end of the 20th century, am monium sulfate, calcium nitrate, sodium nitrate, and calcium cyanamide were readily available. Ammonium nitrate became an important fertilizer during that time, eventually becom ing the leader in fertilizers. (source: garden guides.com/80074-his tory-chemical-fertilizers. html#ixzz2pAaFxTfs) Farmers and garden ers have learned that use of certain fertilizers deplete the soil signifi cantly. Composting is far superior to some other fertilizers because of carbon content and compost does not destr oy mi crobes in the soil. We should learn all we can about soil health and biodiversity. I am just be ginning to learn but some good titles are: ural Farming Harold W illis Ph.D. ing Handbook Philip A. Wheeler Ph.D. & Ronald B. Ward out Poisons Charles Walters Charles Walters A good compost pile must contain a variety of ingredients and it must be more than 3 feet high to develop the needed heat to destroy patho gens and weed seeds. Proper compost piles do not stink. If your compost stinks, add leaves, wood chips or hay. It is a good idea to find out if pesticides or herbicides were used in production of an item before adding it to your compost. Animals fed grains grown with herbicides have herbicide residues in their manure. There are many instances of crop damage from using compost with herbicide residues. From Moth r eported in July 2009, clopyralid and its close cousin, aminopyralid, easily persist, sometimes nure and compost. When contaminated materials are used in food gardens, tomatoes, beans and other sensitive crops develop curled foliage that looks like a disease, if they grow at all. Aminopyralid pesticides have been pulled from shelves in the United Kingdom. (source: moth erearthnews.com/organ ic-gardening/contami nated-compost-clopyra lid-aminopyralid-pyra lid-dow-chemicals-tox ins.aspx#ixzz2pAgxoc3u) Q: Is compost all I need to improve my soil? need to do a soil test every one to three years and you will most like ly need to add minerals such as lime, sulfur and borax. The compost will help k eep minerals in place where they can be used by your plants. Compost, diluted fish emulsion, kelp and diluted molas ses help feed your plants and the microscopic plants and animals. Q: Where can I find livestock feed without GMOs or soy? A: I have asked the extension office and lo cal feed stores if anyone in our area is interested in GMO free and/or soy free livestock production. They could not tell me. I know you are out there! The nearest source I am aware of is Coun tryside Organics, which is sold at Bunnell Feed Bunnell. They can be reached at 386-437-2032 or bunnellfeedandsupply. com. Another location is Alachua County Feed & Gainesville. They can be or alachuacountyfeed andseed.com. It can be ordered online, but the shipping is costly. I hope this article may spur some local inter est in pooling together to reduce feed costs and share information about sustainable farming and healthy eating. Q: Is there anyone near producing nonGMO whole grains for sale? A: If so, I am looking for you. Q: Did you know that almost all farming prior to WWI was organic? A: Isnt it interesting how old ways become new again? Q: Where can we learn more about sustainable methods of raising and preparing healthy food? A: com Farmer Magazine Two great books that inspired me were written tles are Folks, this Aint tic Farmer. Y es, I am a lunatic! Feel free to join me.PALATKA T.J.

Two fashion shows were recently held at Crescent City and Interlachen high schools. Students and faculty modeled the latest in prom fashion and reminded students of the importance to stay safe and sober during prom season. The fashion shows were coordinated through the Putnam County Community Alliance. The first of three fashion shows was held at Crescent City Jr./Sr. High School Friday, January 24. Eighteen students and faculty members partici pated as models for the event. Angel Duke, President and Founder of the Putnam County Rites of Passage Initiative (ROPI), hosted the event, and several ROPI members acted as models for the day. Duck Realty, a local real estate agency, sponsored the event in Crescent City, while Bloomers Garden Center donated plants, and Beautiful Choyces Hair participated as a local vendor. The dresses and tuxes worn by the models were provided by Angelas of Palatka. Interlachen High School students modeled beautiful dresses and stylish tuxedos for their fellow classmates Wednesday, January 29. The event was hosted by the students themselves, and members of the IHS Key Club were featured as emcees. Sponsoring this fashion show was Bethel Assembly of Gods recovery group, Hurts, Habits and Hang Ups. Bloomers Garden Center again provided plants, as well as Flowers Galore in Interlachen, and An gelas provided formal wear once more. The money that was raised from ticket sales for each fashion show will be shared between the School District and the Community Alliance, with half of the funds going to student services that are not funded by state or county dollars, and the other half going to fund next years program. Christopher Glymph, Program Director of the Putnam County Community Alliance, stated that these fashion shows are fun and important for the students. The goal of these events is to get the message of having a safe and sober prom out before prom plans are finalized, and to promote self-esteem amongst the student body. Prom is a milestone in many students lives, and these fashion shows encourage students to have fun, but to be responsible. The final fashion show will take place at Palatka High School, Friday, February 7.

Now you may say, Lucky, how is that? Well, most will never hear those words; they will just wake up dead. What if you went to a doctor and he said, I have some bad news for you. The test results came back and you only have 30 days to live Now, here is a question to ponder. What would you do? Would you go take revenge on every person that has ever screwed you over? Would you try to go back and correct some of the wrongs that youve done? Would you try things that you never tried before, like skydiving, mountain climbing with no ropes, robbing a bank, or maybe you would go play in traffic like my dad would tell me to do as a kid? So, what would you do? I know thats a tough question and probably one that we could only truly answer when that time comes. In 1998, I received a call from my Uncle Wayne, who was my uncle by marriage. The call was one that I will never forget as long as I live. I answered the phone and the first words out of my Uncles mouth were, Your Aunt Dot is in the hospital, and she has brain cancer. The doctors say she has less than a month to live. She wants to see you. Three hours later I was at the hospital all the way across the state. This was a fourhour drive. I arrived at the hospital and talked to the doctors who assured me that nothing could be done and that they would make her as comfortable as possible for the next 30 days. I entered my Aunts room and was expecting to see a woman all withered and frail, but to my surprise she was sitting up and playing solitaire with a deck of cards she must have purchased in the mid 50s. I sat beside her on the bed and she gave me a big hug then said, Im okay, its just one of those things that happen in life, Travis, we are born to die. As my Aunt held me in her arms, I felt like a little kid again because, at the age of 12, my mother had died and my Aunt had stepped in and filled her shoes. Realizing that I was about to lose my second mother, I lost it. Suddenly, I was 12 again. As she held me in her arms, she started breathing funny like she was gasping for air; I immediately drew back and looked at her. My heart was racing and I said, Whats wrong? She said, Youre standing on my ox ygen line! Then she started laughing! Of course, I wasnt but that was her way of snapping me out of the pain I was feeling. She was always quite the prankster. At the hospital, I told my Aunt that I wouldnt leave her side and I would stay at the hospital until she passed away. I also asked her what I could do to make her more comfortable, and she said, You can take me home, I dont want to die here. After talking to the doctors, they agreed it would probably be best. I returned home and packed enough clothes to last me for the next 30 days. Two days later, my Aunt was at home where we made her living room into a make shift bedroom and I hired a private nurse to help make her more comfortable. The room was complete with oxygen, morphine, her T.V., playing cards, several of her favorite books, and my recliner/bed. I had no intention of leaving her side. During the first two weeks, she seemed to be fine, but then again that was the morphine doing its job. Now, it was at this time I asked her this question, Aunt Dot, what would you like to do before you die? Where would you like to visit? Anywhere, just name it, and we will be on a flight in two hours! She replied, There are two things I would like to have. One is for all the kids to come visit me, (she was referring to my siblings, because she was never able to have kids of her own). And two is to go to the grocery store. Both of her wishes were granted, my brothers and sister came to say their last goodbyes and I took her to the grocery store. Her reason for wanting to go to the grocery store was to smell all of the fruit, which she did for about an hour. She told me that during the great depression, when she was a little girl, she always wanted an apple, but her parents couldnt afford it. Over the next few weeks, her condition took a turn for the worse. The nurse was giving her more and more morphine with each passing day. As I sat there one night reading her The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe, she asked me to stop for a minute at which point she said, How many more days do I have left? I looked at the calendar where she had circled the date and I said, According to the calendar, Aunt Dot, less than a week. She then replied, Well, I think I will outlive the doctors prediction by three days then, you know, just to mess with them. The circled date finally came, and, at this point, I believe she was ready to go, but she was hanging in there until the next morning. At sunrise, the nurse woke me and said, I think we need to move your Aunt to the hospice facility, there is blood in her urine and shes fading fast! I talked to my Aunt and she said it was okay, and a few hours later she was transported to a hospice house. The next day was the 33rd day from the time the doctors first told us she would die. I was sitting in the chair next to her bed when she motioned me to sit next to her. She lifted her oxygen line out of the way and laughed as she gasped for air. She motioned for me to come closer to her mouth so I could hear what she was saying. As I got my ear closer to her mouth she said, Can you go get me an apple? Then she pulled me closer and said, I love you, son! So off I went to get an apple from the cafeteria. I returned in less than five minutes with the apple only to have the nurse stop me at the door and say, Your Aunt passed away just a second ago.

Travis Roberts Staff Writer travis.pccj@gmail.comClay Electric Trustees Approve $5 Million Capital Credits RefundThursday, January 23, Clay Electric Cooperatives board of trustees approved a $5 million Capital Credits refund to current and former members of the co-op who received service between 1987 and 2012. This will be the cooperatives 40th consecutive refund of Capital Credits. Current members of the cooperative who are entitled to a refund will receive a credit on their March bills. A members actual share of this years refund is based on the amount he or she was billed for electricity during the years included in the retirement period (1987-2012). Former members of the cooperative who are entitled to a refund will be mailed a refund check around mid-March. General Manager/CEO Ricky Davis said the trustees considered a variety of financial data and economic conditions before deciding to make this years refund. The refund of Capital Credits is a tangible and unique benefit of receiving service from a not-for-profit electric cooperative, Davis said. Investor-owned utilities that have margins left over after expenses are paid return these funds to stockholders as dividends. Municipally-owned electric utilities return their margins to the city coffers. What are Capital Credits? Clay Electric is a notfor-profit cooperative, so any profits (margins) left over at the end of the year after expenses are paid are assigned to members on a pro-rata basis, to be refunded at a later date as Capital Credits. These refunds also help lower the cost of power for members of the cooperative. Capital Credits are a source of equity for cooperatives. Capital Credits enable cooperatives to reduce the amount of money they must borrow for a variety of projects and purchases. This means less borrowed money and fewer interest payments. The average amount of Capital Credits returned in 2013 to current members was $16.22. The average return for former members was $30.86. Average return numbers for 2014 will be available in mid-February. Capital Credits are one of the benefits of being served by an electric cooperative. In addition to members actually owning their cooperative, they accrue Capital Credits. Members also get to vote on who represents them on the co-ops board of trustees. Clay Electrics management and employees work hard to offer members professional service, competitive electric rates and reliable power.Special to theCourier Journal St. Johns River State College announces a degree program targeted to assist Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) who want to take their education and skills to the next level.

Your sex life and erection can now survive DIABETES OR PROSTATE CANCER? 800-777-1922 I went into the room, and as I looked at her I scratched the apple and place it under her nose. I was really mad at my Aunt for dying before I got back with the apple until I returned back to her house and read a letter that she had written me just a few days before she passed. Im not going to post the whole letter but just tell you one short part of it. In the letter she said that before she was to take her last breath, she would send me out to get her an apple because she didnt want me to remember her gasping for her last breath. During my Aunts life, she had always said, Love and hate are two things that make us and destroy us. Life is too long to hate and too short to show the ones you care for the love you have for them. My Aunt was right; life can seem like an eternity when you choose to hate and only days when you truly love someone. So in closing, my question to you is this, If you knew that your partner, friend, or children only had 30 days to live, would you treat them any differently? If you said no, then you will have no regrets, but if you said yes, then you better change quickly. We are born to die and no one will live forever. Who knows if today will start the 30-day countdown for one of your loved ones? One thing is for sure, we all have that 30-day countdown in our hour glass of life. I didnt write this ar ticle to make you sad, but to help you realize that each and every day we need to treat the ones we love like they are in their last 30 days to live. Next week we will be celebrating Valentines Day, so instead of going through the motions of love, make it real.
