Monday, February 17, marked the 87th Anniver sary of the Rotary Club of Cr escent City. The club began back in 1927, with George C. Miller, Sr. serving as the first President. A charter was presented to the newly founded club, which was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Palatka and their President, Howell Da vis, on March 10, 1027. Fr om then, the 15 char ter members held their meetings at the Gr ove Hall Hotel, which stood where Miller Intermediate School is now. They met every W ednesday at noon, until 2003 when the meetings moved to Tuesday morn ings. Over the years, the Rota ry Club o f Cres cent City has been known for serving the public, but have always focused on the youth of today leading us tomorrow. The first noted civ ic project the group led was the Boy Scout T roop #42. The club has re cently reinstated the In teract Club at Crescent C ity Jr./Sr. High School. The high school level di vision of the club, which al lows the youth to participate in commu nity service pr ojects in their communi ty, currently has 14 members and is sponsored by Alice McCoy. Th e Rotary Club of Crescent City is also known for sponsoring local events, such as the Annual Catfish Festival, now in its 36th year and Swine and Wine. The 2013 Swine and Wine was the clubs most successful to date, with members selling 330 dinner tickets and raising $14,000. In attendance at Tuesdays Anniversary meet ing were members from t he Hastings and two Palatka Rotary Clubs, Area Governor Brent Coates, and District Governor Art McQueen, as well as the 27 curr ent and honorary members. Volunteer firefighters and emergency responders help keep the communities safe day in and day out. Each day, men and women across the country, gather up their gear and head to a local fire department to face whatever the day may bring. Through the ser vices that these generous people render, for very little monetary return, citizens can go on with their day knowing that they will be protected at home or work if disaster were to arise. In the United States, 73% of fire services are made up of volunteers. A majority of departments in rural areas are completely ran and fully supported by volunteers, because this is usually the only option in maintaining emergency services. This is what you will find to be true in Putnam County. Putnam County has a total of 19 fire departments, 18 of which are volunteer stations. The station in the city of Palatka is the only one that is not ran by volunteers, and runs off a budget of around $344,560 per year, set up by the city. The fire departments in Crescent City, Melrose, East Palatka, and Satsuma are combination stations that have paid staff, as well as volunteers, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. It takes nearly 421 participating volunteers within these 18 stations to maintain the emergency services needed by the Countys population. Over the years, the need for emergency services has increased, but the number of people volunteering for these positions has decreased. Communities only have a limited number of options to keep these departments open and maintained. The first option is to recruit and maintain volunteers. Having a large number of volunteers that can rotate shifts not only guarantees the communitys safety, but also saves taxpayers money. The other options would be to develop combination fire departments, or hire career firefighters only. These options are costly and communities do not always have the means to maintain these stations. Thats where volunteering comes into play. According to Catina Flynn, Recruitment Coordinator, in order for the Georgetown/ Fruitland Volunteer Fire Department to function smoothly, there needs to be around 20 volunteers who rotate shifts. The Georgetown/ Fruitland VFDs annual community meeting is Tuesday, February 25, at 7 p.m. at the Georgetown Community Center, which is located on C.R. 309, next to the fire department. This is an active opportunity for recruitment, so if you are interested in becoming a volunteer firefighter, or would like to learn more about recruitment and what it takes to become a firefighter, you are strongly encouraged to attend this meeting.The weather could not have been better as festival-goers filled the streets around Welakas Town Hall, participating in games, listening to live entertainment, and shopping with Springfest vendors and community yard sales. Friday was on the spicy side with a chili cookoff, won by Sandra Adams, while Saturday was a little sweeter, with a cake and pie contest. Sherry Terrana placed first in the cake con test, while Kimberly Sands ear ned first in the pie contest.

Blake Shelton Third Grade: Mrs. Newbolds Class I would help our people by helping them with their reading. Timothy Jackson First Grade: Ms. Hebdens 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 Even though Darcie was known as the nerdy chemistry whiz, her reputation for disliking boys was even more well-known. She made it clear that she felt anything a boy could do, she could do better, and she could do it wearing a dress if she felt like it. Of course, she never felt like it, and so she didnt wear dresses. But she never tried to hide her feelings about the male gender, and claimed that all problems in the human species could be alleviated if women were in charge. And nothing disgusted her more than when girls wasted time and energy flirting with a boy. She said she would never lower herself to such antics. Thus, when Darcie fell for the captain of an opposing schools scholastic team, news was around the school almost before we arrived back from the meet. People who found out tried teasing her, but they didnt get very far. She was so lost in her own world that their teasing just sloughed right off of her as she grinned and hummed happily. But as the time for the dance grew closer, Darcie started getting ner vous. She had never tried to fix herself up, and she had the social grace of a match in a petroleum factory, at least where men were concerned. Most of those of our gender had learned not to cross her, and avoided her altogether, if possible. However, for the two weeks leading up to dance night, she was a wreck. She couldnt do her homework, she spilled every lab chemical she touched, and she whimpered to other girls for help about everything from the proper shoes to the best hairdos. As bad as the old Darcie was, this one was worse, and we could hardly wait for the dance to be over. Still, we felt somewhat sorry for her. Her mother knew my mother, and, from the phone calls we received, I began to realize that Darcie was the way she was because her mother was that way also. Darcies mother had the same opinion about those of the male species, and felt they were just a necessary evil. Im not sure how she ever got married, or how Darcie came into the picture, but I began to especially feel sorry for Darcies father. Nonetheless, Darcies mother dutifully tried to figure out how to make her daughter into a young lady in less than two weeks. The two of them bought dresses and shoes and whatever else they could think of. They purchased makeup and tried to figure out how to apply it, a feat some girls never master in a lifetime. The day of the dance finally arrived. The school was abuzz with excitement over seeing this boy. Rumors abounded that he was absolutely the most handsome guy in the world. Why else would Darcie, the man hater, have fallen for him? But those of us who were on the scholastic team knew otherwise. Many of us were nerds, but he was nerdier, if thats truly possible. He made us look like movie stars next to him. He had huge horn rimmed glasses, a greased-up 50s hairstyle, and he wore a sweater. Sweaters had gone extinct along with the dinosaurs, somewhere back during the Cretaceous Period. Yet those of us who had met him didnt dare say anything for fear of eliciting Darcies wrath, and being hit over the head with some lab experiment. So the rumors persisted and grew. Needless to say, a huge group crowded around when word came that the two of them had arrived at the dance. When they walked through the door, there was an audible gasp. Not because Darcies date was that handsome in his sweater and slicked back hair, because he wasnt. But Darcie?! She had on a beautiful gown with lacy sleeves that were puffy at the ends. It drooped just a bit around her neck, and had lots of lace trim around the edges. It hugged her waist and chest, and enhanced her female figure. Her hair was pulled back, and was actually brushed, and it hung loosely around her shoulders, with ribbons tied across the top. She had makeup, though not perfectly applied, it highlighted her eyes. She even had on lipstick, the one thing she claimed was the invention of either the devil or a man, both of whom she believed were distinctly related. Brent, a member of our scholastic team, and a fellow student in our chemistry class, turned to me, his eyes wide with shock. Did you ever realize before that Darcie was a girl?!A Girls First Valentines DanceDear Editor: A fundamental part of our well-being as a society depends upon the domestic production of food. Our farmers and ranchers provide us with an abundant, nutritious and safe food supply throughout the year. In recognition of this achievement, members of the Putnam-St Johns County Farm Bureau will celebrate Food Check-Out Week from February 16 through the 22. On average, American individuals and families spend less than 10% of their disposable income on food. Many other nations spend 30% or more. By this time of year, the average family will have earned enough income to cover all of their food costs. Despite the easy access and overall affordability of groceries in the US, many are still struggling to provide the basics for their families during these continued distressed economic times. Public health experts fear that lean economic times may mean that many will resort to cheaper high-calorie foods, which can lack important vitamins, minerals, fiber and other nutrients. However, with smart nutrition and budget knowledge put into action, this doesnt have to happen. It is more important than ever to shop smart and buy healthy food that fits within a budget. Keep in mind that all forms of fruits and vegetables contribute to a healthy dietincluding fresh, frozen, dried, and canned. You can pur chase locally grown foods such as potatoes, cabbage, corn and tomatoes, at produce stands and farmers markets. St Johns County is the leader in the production of potatoes in the state of Florida, with two-thirds of the acreage being in the Hastings area. While Americas farmers and ranchers are committed to producing safe, healthy food, they share with consumers the same issues of putting nutritious meals on the table while sticking to a tight budget. According to a USDA study, farmers receive less than 16 cents out of every dollar spent on food. Off-farm costsprocessing, packaging, transportation, wholesaling, and retailingaccount for the majority of the food costs consumers pay. Most of the recent increases in retail food prices have been the result of higher prices of energy needed to process, haul, and refrigerate food. The Putnam-St Johns County Farm Bureau urges you to join us in our Food Check-Out Week events by sharing some of your abundance with others. If you would like participate, you could donate to local food banks or homeless shelters, or to a family in need. We are proud to highlight Florida agriculture and the people who make it successful. Our farm producers give us a basic security as a society.

100th Birthday William Howard Barton Sr., was born February 9, 1914, in Jersey City. He now makes his home in Lake Como, with his daughter and her husband, Muriel and Bob Kuhn.

A delicious cake, baked by Irma Kay Strickler, with all the extras, was served. It was fantastic. A family reunion is planned for the end of the month, Saturday, February 22, to be held at the Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City. Bill and his late wife, Connie, frequented the restaurant when he was stationed in Tampa, as part of the US Coast Guard.

A4 OUR TO WN Years Ago...75 years agoFebruary 22, 1989 South Putnam Parkland Buy Okayed Putnam County commissioners last week tentatively approved the $150,000 purchase of a 55-acre former orange grove near Crescent City High School. The county plans to turn the high, sandy hill into a major recreation facility serving all of south Putnam County. It has not been decided on what will be built. Commissioners hope to see tennis courts, basketball courts, softball, baseball and soccer fields, a nature trail and eventually a swimming pool. 25 years agoFebruary 17, 1939 Lime Rock For Road Building Program A newspaper A newspaper advertising campaign is being started this month to acquaint tax payers of Florida with the tax saving benefits and everlasting qualities of Floridas native lime rock as a road base material. The educational efforts of the Lime Rock Association will be carried on throughout the year. The unequalled qualities of lime rock as a road base material should be rejoiced because it possesses a tax saving native recourse that is one of the worlds finest and most permanent road base material, said Leon Thasher, Engineer Director of the Lime Rock Association of Florida. February 20, 1964 Cowards Garden Store Grand Opening Set Cowards Garden Store will have a grand opening this Friday and Saturday, at their new location, the southwest corner of Central Avenue and Main Street, across the street from their former place of business.

He was in route to a fly-in at John Brewers airfield in Pomona Park, when another pilot circling over notified ground control that visibility was too poor to land. Bertrand then contacted ground control and indicated that he would not be landing either and was going to return to New Smyrna Beach. That was the last time we heard from him, recalled Brewer.

Presbyterian, Episcopal Churches To Share Local Ministry Rev. John McT am many will hold his rst service at the First Pr esbyterian Church in addition to the regular 8 and 11 oclock services at the Episcopal Church of the Holy Comforter, starting February 2. The Presbyterian ser vice will begin at 9 a.m. After several months of planning, the Presbyterian Session and the Episcopal Mission Boar d of the Crescent City Churches arrived at a proposal for a shared ministry. The plan was submitted to the Florida Synod Executive, Dr. Douglas S. V ance, and to the Bishop of Flori da, The Rt. Rev. Hamil ton West, and received enthusiastic approvals. The both congregations met and, after listening to the details of the pr oposal, gave consent to go forward with this plan for a trial period of about one year. This plan for denom inational cooperation by these two congr egations is a rst for this area of Florida, Rev. McTammany said. Many communities with a goodly number of chur ches with small congregations may serve our Lord more ef fectively by joining forc es, combining interests r esulting in a strong and meaningful Christian body.

February 19, 2014 COURIER JOURNAL Section B After watching the Florida Gators clip the Kentucky Wildcats in Rupp Arena Saturday night, I thought it prudent to take a hard look at the Gators chances of reaching the nal four. Lord knows I dont want to put a hex on that team. The fact is, if you can come into a venue as tough as Rupp, and win it, that denitely amounts to something. It makes little differ ence if you are ranked #1 or #3, or anywhere in the top ve. If the W ildcats are not up to par, and you win, you have an edge in the quest for the Conference Championship, as well as a high seed in the playoffs on the way to the nal four. Rupp Arena is not your normal venue for a basketball game, even taking into consider ation the excellent facilities around the coun try. This places holds over 15,000 (maybe closer to 20,000) bloodthirsty fans, each with one purpose. That purpose is to disrupt the discipline of the opposing players and, subse quently, the outcome of the game with noise and mor e noise. So, if a team can go in there, and hush that madness to a whisper during the last ve min utes by outscoring the home team something like 13-5, as UF did, you have climbed the mountain, as they say. The Gators, just as they did in the back-toback national championships of 2006-2007, have caught the SEC in a season of struggling to rebuild mode, and have taken advantage of that. Thats not to say they have had an easy road to travel, but if there was ever an oppor tunity to move on to the championship of the confer ence, this has got to be it. Kentucky has done this for years, and built a reputation as one of the premium programs in the country. This current Gator bunch does show that they have a unique ability to not fall apart un der pressure, so far. Florida has to be the odds on favorite to take the Easter n division of the SEC, and Im not too sure anyone in the west, except for Arkansas, can present a challenge. This is a tough veteran club, with people such as Scottie Wilbekin, Patric Young (thats man for ya), and Casey Prather making it rough on offensive schemes thrown at them. Florida had the fourth best football team in the state last year, but it looks like there will be redemption on the basketball court this year. Ive found very few people that have spent time watching the Winter Olympics this year, and Im not sure why. I guess it has to do with my view on patriotism, going back to my mili tary tour, that fuels my interest in this event. Im downright pr oud of these athletes who train hard for four years for the opportunity to take their place on the podium, and it sort of rubs off on me. These skiers traveling over 85 miles per hour blow me away. It would seem that they are in complete control of the process, and then, all of the sudden, make one subtle mistake, and its all over. This can either have a good or bad ending. Its good if he isnt hurt, and bad if he missed the gate. The sportsmanship these athletes display is something we all can learn from, particular ly young athletes still participating in sports in school, and later as adults, Ther e was an excellent example on Sunday, when a woman skier, who came into the games as the odds on favorite to win the super downhill, drifted off the course, probably going 75 miles per hour, and fell. Well, she simply said in an in terview later on that she was disappointed, but would be back. Now, compar e that with freak ing out over a called strike three or lashing out at someone over something r elatively minor, whether its sports or something else. The USA, it would appear right now, will not win the medal totals it did in Vancouver four years ago, but we can be proud of how our ath letes performed, and especially how they took the disappointments, as well as the wins. Whats the ScoreA Sports Commentary byDudley Sargent Trivia Night WinnersOn Wednesday, February 12, at 3 Bananas, there were twelve teams playing.

Well, the answer is yes. During my lifetime, I have been fortunate enough to have traveled all over the world, and have met some very in teresting people. Today I want to shar e a story about a couple that I met quite few years ago. I was in Ft. Pierce, at the time, when my watchband broke. The pin had snapped as I was dropping anchor on my sailboat. It was my lucky day because I did not lose my watch to the ocean. I decided to go ashore and meet up with an old friend, grab some lunch, and find someplace to get my watch fixed. I had just finished eating lunch at this little diner, and was walking up Main Street, when I saw a small jewelry shop. I walked in and asked the lady be hind the counter if she could put a new pin in my watch. She r eplied, Yes, but it will cost you a dollar. Hey, Im no dummy. It sounded like a good deal to me. So, I handed her my watch and she disappeared into another room. While I was waiting, I noticed man in his late 70s sitting behind me and a woman stand ing next to the counter. The man was looking at my shirt and hat, which had the college that I went to printed on it. We started talking. I asked him if he was waiting on something to be repaired and he said, No. His daughter owned the shop and the lady at the counter was his wife. I asked if they were on vacation, to which he replied, No, we are doing our bucket list. I noticed a big scar on the right side of his face and asked him what happened. He told me that he had a cancerous tumor removed from his face about a month ear lier. I learned the mans name was Conrad and h is wifes was Cathy. I asked him how long they had been married and how they met. Now here is where the story really starts. Conrad said, Last week was our 35th wed ding anniversary. We met at a cemetery in Ohio. Okay, now Ive hear d of couples meeting in all kinds of places, but a cemetery? Needless to say, he had my atten tion. I was there visiting my wifes grave, when I noticed Cathy standing next to a grave, crying, so I walked over to her and I asked if she was ok, and she said yes. W ait! Cathy said, Let me tell him how we met, at which point Conrad said Yeah, I make all the import ant decisions, like how to solve world hunger, who will be the next president, and who the next pope will be. Cathy makes all the small decisions, like which new cars we will buy and which house we will purchase next and which story she will fin ish. Then he chuckled. Cathy said, It was 35 years ago and both of our mates had passed away of cancer Conrad was visiting his wifes grave and I was visiting my husbands grave. I had gone there to ask my husband if he would release me so I could move on with my life, because I was tired of missing him. I noticed Conrad walking toward me, when I heard a voice inside me say, Now you can move on. As Conrad and I talk ed, it seemed he had been ther e for the same reason. While we talk ed, a big gust of wind blew thr ough the trees. It was as if my soul had been set free. One year later we were married. As I looked and lis tened, it was clear by the look in their eyes that they wer e truly in love. Now, if the sto ry was to end here, it would be a gr eat love story to write about, but it doesnt. I asked Conrad if he was dying of cancer, and if that was the rea son for the bucket list? As he looked at her with sadness in his eyes, he r eplied, No, we both are. Wow, I didnt see that one coming. Both Conrad and Cathy were told by their doctors, less than a year earlier, that they had cancer. He had colon cancer and she had breast cancer. Even though shed had both breasts removed, the cancer was spreading. Both of them had been advised to have chemo therapy, but had de cided against it. Conrad said Yeah, shes stubbor n, and she re plied, Yeah, right back at you. As I stood there listening to both of them, I had a lump in my throat the size of a baseball. Conrad decided that he was going to go without the chemo so he could take care of Cathy, and she also made up her mind that she was not going to have the chemo so she could take care of Conrad. In other words, they were both willing to give up what little bit of life they might have left so the other one could live. They made the decision that neither would have chemo and they would die together. We decided to exchange phone numbers in or der to keep in touch. Conrad and Cathy were able to finish their bucket list one year lat er. Three months, later Conrad passed away. At the funeral, Cathy told me how Conrad had begged her to get the chemo and how her heart was broken be cause he was gone. I told Cathy that I would be in town for a couple of weeks, and if she needed anything, to give me a call. One week later, Cathy called and asked if I would give her a ride to see Conrad. An hour later, we were at the cemetery. Cathy got down on her knees in front of Conrads grave and said, Conrad, I didnt come here to ask you to release me from your spirit, I came here to let you know that I will see you soon. Hon ey, I miss you. Please make sur e you have the place cleaned before I get there, you know how I hate a dirty house. It was at this point that I had to walk away before I lost it. Not long after Conrad passed away, Cathy went to be with the love of her life and she was buried next to Conrad. Last week, I went to their gravesite to place some flowers there and as I stood at the foot of their graves, I could hear the wind blow through the trees. I couldnt help but think that maybe that was their way of showing me that they are together forever. You know, as I sit here and think about Conrad and Cathy, I wonder how many couples have that kind of love; wher e each is willing to give up their life in or der for their partner to carry on? Most couples today take each other for granted and a few couples, I know, would push their partner in front of a mov ing train. But given the choice, would you die so that your partner could have few mor e precious breaths of life? I hope that by reading Conrad and Cathys story it will make you real ize that life is short and true love r eally does exist. I want to thank you for r eading this article and also I want to thank Cathy and Conrad for allowing me to be a part of their life.
