Monday, February 10, friends, classmates, and family of HaLeigh Cummings gathered at Browning Pearce Ele mentary School, in San Mateo, to place a plaque at the foot of HaLeighs T ree, a crepe myrtle already planted on the grounds of the school HaLeigh attended until her disappearance on February 10, 2009. Cummings great-grandmother, Annette Sykes, and grandmother, Teresa Neves, spoke briefly, thank ing the community for its support and ur ging anyone who may know something about Ha leighs disappearance to come forwar d. We want to keep HaLeighs face out there t o remind people she is still missing and we still want her to come home, stated Sykes. I can not describe the pain and agony we have gone through, Sykes added, I would not wish this on my worst enemy. We want to ask the community to think back to the day and weeks following Ha leighs disappearance, said Car ol Ferry of the Florida Missing Chil drens Day Foundation. Someone has to have seen or know something that can help and bring HaLeigh back home to her family. Ferry went on to say that something as small as someone in the area that moved or left town at the time of HaLeighs disappearance might help with the investi gation. Anyone with infor mation regarding the disappearance of Cummings is urged to con tact the Putnam County Sherif fs Department.Remembering HaLeighNewspaper Celebrates Platinum AnniversaryBeing one of Floridas oldest weekly newspapers, a 20 year anniversary might sound a bit out of place. But it marks the anniversary of 20 years of local own ership, starting with the for mation of Lake Street Publishing Company in 1994 bringing the Putnam County Courier Journal back into local ownership from Mor ris Communications, which owned the paper for 21 years prior The past two decades have offered many chal lenges but many more r ewards. Below are a few small examples of the chang es that are easy to see, though often times the technology was not. What we know as to days Putnam County Courier Journal is the descendant of newspa pers published since the 1880s in this ar ea. As the years have come and gone the historical importance, community connection of covering, not just the news and events of any given area, but celebrat ing the people, places, and things that make Putnam County unique. Even in a world of 24 hour broadcast news and the Internet, there is still a locally owned, community newspaper. So that the people of Putnam County will be given a Voice, a place that is All about them. After all you cant find out who came from out of town to visit Mrs. Smith or who won the local chili cook-off on CNN. Having lived, worked and grown up in a place that cant be duplicated is unique, and some times we have to be r eminded of just how great it can be! We dont just cover people and places we cover friends, family, neighbors and our home. In a nutshell, we are proud to be fami ly owned and operat ed. Covering issues for the county we love and the community we care about. It has been a great 20 years and we look forward to the next 20 years and all it has to offer. The Putnam County Courier Journal would not be what it is today without you, our readers. After all if you want to know whats going on, who better to ask than the locals?Wagon ToursRavine Gardens State Park will host a Wagon Tour Saturday, February 15. Enjoy a guided wagon tour around the beautiful ravine at Ravine Gardens State Park! Tours will begin at 1 p.m., last approximately 25 minutes, and will leave every 30 minutes, from the front of the Roy E. Campbell Civic Center. Learn about the history of the ravine and the park, and plants, animals and ecosystems that make Ravine Gardens a diverse place to visit. The last tour leaves at 2:30 p.m. The tours are $1 per person, and proceeds benet the Friends of Ravine Gardens State Park. Registration is not required. Mike Jones Staff Writer Photo by Mike Jones The foot of HaLeighs Tree, a young crepe myrtle, is now home of a plaque in honor of the missing HaLeigh Cummings. When the Courier Journal was purchased in early 1994, by Lake Street Publishing Company, the first big change to occur was the masthead. The new masthead included a drawing by local artist, Esme Coward, aptly titled Fern, fish and fruit. It captured all the elements that made South Putnam a great place to live. The artwork stayed a central part of the masthead until late 2008.

Natalie Montavio Third Grade: Mrs. Shulls Class Its when theres candy and you can surprise your Mom and Dad. Brisa Albarran First Grade: Ms. Yonges Class Students at Middleton-Burney Elementary School, in Crescent City, were asked the following question by 3rd Grade teacher, Tasha Newbold: Eyes Eyes Daris Howard The Valentines Day dance was one of the biggest events of the year at our school. It was a girls choice prom and, in our era, girls seldom asked boys out. It was the one big chance of the year for a girl to appropriately take the initiative and not only plan a date the way she felt a date should be planned, but to also show a boy that she liked him. Most girls were very excited about this and went out of their way to make the invitation unique and memorable. But there was one girl that didnt seem to care about the Valentines Day dance at all. In fact she not only didnt care, she loathed it. Darcie was a bright young lady in my chemistry class and she informed all of us that dating and everything to do with it was childish and far beneath her dignity. In fact she felt it was beneath the dignity of anyone of the female gender. Every time she saw a girl do something crazy, like decorate a boys locker, or embarrass some guy over the intercom, she seethed with contempt. Boys, she said, are disgusting creatures and why a girl would waste her time and energy on one is incomprehensible. It might be easy to think that Darcies attitude was due to the fact that no boys ever asked her out. But I had spent a lot of time working with her in chemistry, and I knew she truly believed what she said. I realized she had never been on a date because she never chose to make herself desirable to a boy. I suppose Darcie could actually be a pleasant looking girl, but she never fixed herself up nor did she care to. She truly believed that girls were superior to boys in every way and she was not about to lower herself to have any more association with them than she had to. More than once I felt she was just putting up with me when our assignments forced us to work with each other. But then the cosmos turned upside down. Both Darcie and I were members of our scholastic team. We had a competition coming up against our biggest rival and we practiced hard. The day finally ar rived and we bussed to the radio studio from which the meet would be broadcast. Both teams arrived a half hour early, as was custom, so we could get acquainted with each other. When Darcie was introduced to Alex, the other teams captain, something strange happened. Cupid must have unloaded his whole quiver on her because suddenly she couldnt even speak. She babbled in incoherent nothingness as if her brain had turned to mush. The meet started and Darcie was less than worthless to us. She kept her eyes on Alex the whole time. She only answered a couple of questions, and both of those she got wrong, losing us points. Her answers were so far off that Brent, another team member, leaned over to me and said, Earth to Darcie. Earth to Darcie. Come in please. But her ship was deep in space, far from our galaxy, and nowhere near docking. She didnt even wait until after the competition was over to ask him to the preference dance, but did it at intermission right in front of everyone. A person doesnt ask the competing team captain to preference, and especially not at intermission in front of everyone. But he said yes, and from then on our team was really down to three members instead of four. She didnt even try to answer a question in the second half. But she still cost us some points when she dreamily leaned against her buzzer and didnt even know what the question was let alone the answer. To make matters worse, every time Alex answered a question correctly, she giggled and embarrassed us. I kept trying to remind her we were on air, but she didnt hear anything anyone said except Alex. Well, we lost the meet. Am I upset about it? Of course not. That would be silly to still be upset after all of these years. I mean, why should I remember something as trivial as the fact the score ended 55 to 40 or that it was our first loss in an otherwise stellar season? Remembering things like that is ridiculous. I still have nightmares about it, but why would I be upset? However, I do remember the teacher advisor being upset on the way home. Darcie, he exclaimed, what happened to you? Its like you werent even there. You didnt even attempt questions I know you knew. Are you sick or something? Darcie didnt answer, so he asked again. Darcie, are you listening to me? Darcie looked up, a dazed expression on her face. Were you talking to me? The teacher let out an exasperated sigh and spoke sarcastically. No, of course not! I was talking to some other Darcie on our team! Oh, okay then, she answered, and turned her glazed eyes to look back out the window.That Valentines Day Dance InvitationDear Editor: Monday, March 3, 2014, the National Education Association (NEA) kicks off its annual Read Across America Day celebration. In 1997, the NEA decided to have a day of celebration for children in every community coast to coast that could participate in and get excited about books. The NEA thought what better day to have this celebration than on the birthday of the beloved childrens author, Dr. Suess. As a daycare provider, I encourage my staff and all parents to pick up a book everyday and read to a child. Research has shown that it is never too soon to introduce books to a child. Children develop vital language skills, social skills, eye/hand coordination and a world of knowledge through books. Books give children hours of fun and entertainment, as well as expanding imagination. I am writing this letter today to ask everyone in our community to get involved one way or another in Read Across America Day. There are many ways to get involved. Books can be donated to daycares, schools, libraries or the hospital. Another suggestion is to read a book in your childs class or bring children to the library. Crescent City Library has story time for children zero to two years old, three to five years old, and six to 12 years old. If you would like more information about how you can get involved or learn more about the NEA and Read Across America Day, you can go to their website at www.nea. org/readacross. Thank You, Juanita Morales Grandmas Learning Center Crescent CityLetter to the Editor Read Across America

Call 386-649-8784 to nd out more about this class. Market Place The place to be Saturday, February 1, was at the Pomona Park Community Center. At least it seemed like half the county was there. The Center was lled with people who came for breakfast and to shop at the different tables that were set up. Items ranged from the produce stand to painters, jewelers, Nanas Quilts, Celestial Bath and Body with husband and wife team, Chuck and Star Williams. Another husband and wife team was Bobby Wilson, who does pet portraits in black and white, and his wife, Sousan, who had a beautiful jewelry display. Also set up was Doris Bury, Sandra Klinger, Judy Horton, who maybe teaching a class on homemade greeting cards, and Kay Deuben, teaching pastels. (I will have more on that later.) The kitchen crew was overwhelmed with orders and ran out of food during the morning rush. Beautification Chairman Joyce Svingala said they will be better prepared next time. The rst market in January was not so well attended, so this crowd caught them by surprise. Svingala apologized and asked if you did not get served, to give them another chance. (This is going to be a great thing for our community.) For vendor space for the next time you can contact Michele Johnson or Joyce Svingala, I will have numbers for them in a later column. Coconut Cake Recipe I had so many raves over a coconut cake that I baked for Senior Fun Day that I promised to put the recipe in this column, so here it goes. Beths Coconut Cake One box yellow cake mix, one can Eagle brand milk, one large can crushed pineapple, one can coconut milk, one carton Cool Whip, one or two cups shredded coconut. Bake cake as directed on the box in oblong pan. While warm make holes in cake. Pour Eagle brand milk in holes and spread over entire cake. Pour coconut milk over this. Spread drained crushed pineapple over the top. Spread Cool Whip and then sprinkle coconut over all. Pat down slightly, refrigerate and enjoy. Welcome Linda Horne Linda Horne is writing the South Putnam news column for the Palatka Daily News, which our good friend, the late Doris Cosner, wrote for many years. Doris and I swapped notes and pictures from time to time. I hope we can have the same friendly relationship with Linda. Welcome to South Putnam. Also, thanks to Travis Roberts, for lling in while I was out of town. I enjoy his writing. (I read Dudley Sargents, too.) Company at the Robinsons The Abbotts, Windsor and Nancy, from Syracuse, New York, have been visiting Bernie and Doris Robinson, of Lake Como. The Abbotts have a large farm which the Robinsons enjoy everything from blueberries, cherries, apples, and many fruits and vegetables all year long. There was much eating, visiting, and card playing that took place. Sleeping Bags for Homeless Jeanne Shockley and a group of local ladies meet every rst and third Thursday at 1 p.m., at the Lake Como United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall, to make sleeping bags for the homeless. (February 6 and February 20.) Some of the supplies they could use are blankets, comforters, heavy drapes, corduroy items, mattress covers or any heavy or polyester material, crochet thread, and most any fabric, even electric blankets (they can be stripped.) To donate, call Jeanne at 386-649-5315, or if you would like to come help with anything from threading needles to tying knots. (They can also use neck ties to tie up the rolls.) New Elders for First Presbyterian Church Jan Simpson and Barbara Cunningham were recently installed as ruling elders for a three year term at Crescent Citys First Presbyterian Church. Pastor Sam McCoy is the teaching elder. Shockleys Entertain Ray and Jeanne Shockley enjoyed having friends, Bill and Penny Sredl from Indiana, here for ve days. They enjoyed sightseeing around the area and especially touring Palatka and seeing the murals on the buildings. The Shockleys had 21 over for a Super Bowl party. There was a lot of eating and card playing. They were pulling for Peyton Manning, but were also happy for the Seahawks, with their rst Super Bowl win. Bricks for History The Walkway to History in front of the Little Blue House Museum needs about 25 more bricks to nish the job. Long after we are all gone, our children, grandchildren, and friends can go and see our names engraved in the walkway. Our sons purchased bricks for Nick and me for our anniversary and birthdays. If you would like to order a brick, the cost is $25. Cherie Register would be more than happy to take your order. Call her at 386698-4113. (I think you will be glad you did, I am.) Birthdays Happy birthday to Liz Korba and Irene Hundley. Open House Lake Como Water Association held an Open House Saturday, January 18, at the water site on Palmer Avenue in Lake Como.

Johnsons son, Larry, known professionally as Maurice Starr, has been in the music business for some time. He asked his mother to write a story line for a video for his most recent writing.

Some felt that the roads paving would cost more than it was worth. Because the road is routed through a swampy area of the island, paving may also cause concern for St. Johns River Water Management District and for environmental protection.

Way Back When...The following article appeared in the pages of the Crescent City Journal of February 13, 1959. Florida On The Boom Stapp Tells Lions That Area is Garden Spot of Creation Florida is on the boom, Albert Stapp, who is known as the Will Rogers of the South because of his easy, folksy manner of speaking, said that the entire southeast is on the boom Monday at a meeting of the Cres cent City Lions Club at V eterans Hall. He said that last year, for the rst time, industrial output was greater than that of ag riculture in his home state of Alabama. Sales Tax Up He declared that sales tax is up in Flor ida by $15,000,000, and that military, ag ricultural, and tour ist business is up sky high in the land of op portunity. This is the gar den spot of creation Stapp r elated, a land of year-round employment. He also stated that a man can work her e without being hampered by cold weather, snow, ice or sleet. Loves Community I moved to Cr escent City about a year ago, he said. I learned to love the town and its people. He said that here is the third largest lake in Florida, Lake Crescent. He also men tioned Lake Stella and Lake Geor ge. Here we nd a mec ca of shing, Stapp continued. On Alabama Farm In his humor ous manner, Stapp compared the growth of the Southeast with his boyhood days on an Alabama far m. He listed the products which his mother and father used. For example, he stated his mother cooked breakfast on a stove manufactured by the Michigan Stove Works in Detroit. His father hitched a horse to a carriage made in South Bend, Indiana. He plowed the elds with a product from another part of the Nation. And when I went to bed, he said, I hear d a hound dog howling in the nightthe only Alabama product. Southeast Growing Stapp related that the Southeast was growing faster than any other secton of the nation. Well I can remem ber he went on, when the saw mill and the cotton were the only industry in Alabama. He indicated that the weather was one reason for industrial expansion. The mean temperature in the winter is between 62 and 63 degrees and in the summer it is between 79 and 80, Stapp stated. Introduced by Knapp C. C. Ted West, Lions Club President presided. Included in the introductions were Deputy District Governor Clinton Rumpt of South Side, Professor A. R.

Maria Soto is this months Student of the Month at Middleton-Burney Elementary School. The following is what her teacher, Mrs. Tasha Newbold, had to say about this outstanding student. Maria Soto was chosen as Februarys Student of the Month for Middleton-Burney Elementary School because of her work ethic, her love of learning, and her over all warm heart. Soto is one of the hardest working students in our class. She always strives to do her best academically, and refuses to settle for anything less than her best. She is a thinker, a doer, and a tinkerer. Soto is a friend to everyone and her kindness knows no limits. She is always willing to help her classmates and does so with a smile on her face. She is compassionate, loving, and selfless when it comes to those in need. Sotos first and true love is learning. She soaks up as much knowledge as she can through her love of reading. She is often lost in a book, twirling her hair around her finger, and using her imagination to create the world she is reading about. The truly magical part about Soto is her need to share her knowledge with others. She can barely con tain herself when she is telling others about the book she just finished or a tidbit of information she knows about a specific topic. She is not motivated by awards or friendly competition. She is motivated by her own desire to learn about the world she calls her own. Her excitement is breath taking and truly inspires everyone around her, children and adults alike. Few people have been able to get to know her and have not fallen in love with her sweet charm and smile, and I am no exception. I have truly been blessed to have been her second and third grade teacher, and I hold her love of life near and dear to my heart. I can only hope that she will have a lifetime of learning ahead of her.

Its just another day for the card, chocolate, and flower companies to make money! Its a day to show and tell that special someone how much you love them. Its a day you want that confirmation that he or she really loves you. Wait, its a day when one woman at work gets flowers and says, Look what he got me, and to the woman who didnt get flowers at work, its holding out for another year. My favorite is, Its a day when men feel obligated to get a woman something and the woman has no r egret of eating a whole box of chocolates. If youre wonder ing what Im talking about her e, well these are just some of the answers I got from a group of people on my Facebook page when I asked the question, What does Valentines Day mean to you, and what is a Valentine? While I got tons of replies on what Val entines Day meant, no one r eally gave me an answer to what a Valentine was. I also asked the question, When you ask some one to be your valentine, is it for one day or for ever? The answers I got on that question varied with two differ ent age groups. Most of the younger gr oup thought it was for one day out of the year, while the older crowd said its for a lifetime. At my age, I real ly cant remember too much about V alen tines Day when I was younger except the pressure I felt in find ing that special card or making sur e I got the right kind of flowers. So let me try to answer the question, what does it mean when you ask someone to be your valentine? Now this is just my personal opinion, so if you have another one, then please write me when we post this on the Putnam County Courier Journal Facebook page, and give me your thoughts. It is my person al opinion that what a man and a woman want when they ask someone to be their valentine is basical ly the same thing, its just that they expr ess it in different ways! I believe what each person wants in a valentine is someone to gr ow old with, someone that, when they hold each other they get lost in time and space, and go to a place where neither has been before, together. A valentine is someone that can tur n your sparks into a flame, and make a fire that will last throughout eternity. A valentine is passion that is not only felt, but is beyond words. Its being with the person that loves you more than anyone else, and you know it. Many will touch our bodies in a lifetime, but few will touch our hearts. What we are looking for in a valentine is the one who can touch our soul. Its wanting the person that will make our worries seem few, our laughs many, and our days and nights unforgettable. We are looking for the one who will show us unconditional love day in and day out. The one who accepts us for who we are, in stead of someone they want us to be. A valen tine is that person that we cant live without, instead of settling for the person that we just live with. The one who makes our eyes and heart smile, which makes our heart sing with joy. Wiping away the tears from our past, never having to cry again in the future, and the one who comforts our soul. Every day we go through life taking breaths that we dont realize we are taking, but the valentine we are looking for is the one who takes our breath away! We are looking for the person that we do not have to tell how to love us, be cause a true valentine alr eady knows. A true valentine is someone that we can look into their eyes, and see our love staring right back at us. I believe that out there, we each have a valentine, and that eventually we will all find that once in a life time love. In a few short days we will celebrate Valentines Day, if you have a valentine please make sure to make it a special day not by just giving flowers, chocolates, and a card, but by showing it. Now if you dont have a valentine to celebrate this day with, dont be depressed, try looking at it like this You hav ent settled for being an option in someones life and you ar e holding out until you become a priority for your future valentine, because you will not settle for less than your hearts desire. In closing I want to say this to the men. In another survey I took, I asked this question to women, What would you like most on Valen tines Day? I was quite surprised by the number one answer. It wasnt for a fancy dinner an over sized box of chocolate, or even two-dozen r os es. Ninety-four out of the 106 women that responded said, To have flowers delivered by a florist or by their partner at their place of employment, and it didnt matter if it was one rose or a dozen. Normally, I wont mention a business when I write an article, but since its Val entines Day, I want to mention a couple of ladies that r eally work hard to make this holi day special for so many people. They ar e Di ana and Angela at the Cr escent City Flower Shop in Crescent City. I have been doing business with these two wonderful ladies for three years now, and I can honestly say that I am always impressed with their work. This year they are setting up a tent in their parking lot at 317 N. Summit Street in Crescent City. They are located right across the street from the Putnam County Courier Journal. T o make it easier for you to purchase flowers, you wont even have to get out of your car All you have to do is just drive up and drive off. They are running some great spe cials, so please make sur e to check them out. If you want to place an order or just get more information, you can call 386-698-1313. I have one more com ment that I received that I want to shar e, and its from one of my friends, whom, by the way, is single ladies. His name is Mick Car penter and he wrote, If you truly love someone, then you will show it on a daily basis, not just one day a year . Just imagine how great this world would be if everyone took Micks advice. I want to thank you for reading this article and Happy Valentines Day.

FloArts Ceramics ExhibitFlorida School of the Arts will present the ceramics exhibition Extremes: The Spectrum of Regional Ceramics with an opening reception on Thursday, February 13 at 7 p.m. in the Florida School of the Arts fine arts gallery located on the Palatka campus of St. Johns River State College. The invitational exhibit will be co-curated by Florida School of the Arts instructors Sar ah Alexander and Dan Askew. The theme for the exhibition is based on the idea that the ceramicist is not a one trick pony, but engages in experimentation and sometimes finds success in the serendipity of process, said Alexander, who also serves as the schools gallery coordinator. The artists were asked to select pieces which represent the extremes of their collection, so that the audience can see the range of objects produced by a single artist, including those pieces which may seem contrary to the artists usual style. The show includes works from local ceramic artists Tony Ber ry, Michael Cottrell, Trevor Dunn, Sean Er win, Stephen Heywood, Eva Hosein, Ken Jensen, Darcy Webb Phillips, Derek Reeverts and Gary Shindelbower and will be on display in the fine arts gallery through March 27. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and during Mainstage performances. Gallery exhibits are free and open to the public. Florida School of the Arts is part of the academic and administrative structure of SJR State and awards the two-year associate degree in the following ar eas of study: fine art, graphic design, dance (ballet and contemporary), production/design, acting and musical theatre. The School serves the entire state of Florida. Admission is based on an audition or portfolio review, an interview with the faculty and admission to SJR State. Students produce and perform in approximately four visual arts exhibitions and 10 performances each year.
