Crescent City The Rotary Club of Cres cent City celebrated its 87th anniversary at the Tuesday, February 18, meeting held at Howe Memorial UMC fellowship hall in Crescent City. Many past presidents of the club were in attendance as well as past and current members and guests. Florida Rotary District 6970 Governor, Art MacQueen, was the speaker and commended the Club for their scholarship program, which each year grants at least fifteen $1,500 scholarships, totaling $22,500, to local high school seniors. MacQueen also joined in celebrating the Catfish Festival, now entering its 36th year, and Swine & Wine, now entering its 14th year. Both events help fund donations made by the Rotary Club of Cres cent City that help support the scholarship program and youth activities, such as South Putnam Little League and Pop Warner Football and Cheerleading. Rotary continues as a positive force in the Crescent City community and plays its roll in international goodwill and world service, such as eradicating polio from the face of the earth, polio being the second in worldwide disease to be eliminated. In celebration of the 87th anniversary, the Club donated $2,000 to the Rotary International Polio-Plus Fund. The Rotary Club of Crescent City thanks the people of Putnam County for supporting them over the past 87 years. This support has helped them impact this community and communities around the world.

Florida is one of the largest states ready for completion of the EBT system. There are 2,670 WIC participants in Putnam County, and they generate $2.1 million annually for the local economy through redemption of WIC vouchers at nine grocers. The Florida Department of Health in Putnam Countys Women, Infant, and Children (WIC) program is transitioning to an electronic benefit transfer system starting Monday, March 3. WIC is a federally funded program that provides healthy food, nutrition education and counseling to families. The WIC Program is going electronic which means Putnam County participants will have the opportunity to purchase their nutritious food with an electronic benefits card (EBT) rather than the paper vouchers, said Mary L. Garcia, director of the Florida Department of Health in Putnam County. The main WIC office in Palatka will be closed Wednesday through Friday, February 26-28, and will reopen on Monday, March 3, at 9 a.m. The Interlachen office will be closed Wednesday, February 26, March 5, and March 12, and will reopen for appointments Wednesday, March 19, at 9 a.m. The Crescent City Office will be closed the following Tuesdays, March 4 and March 11, and will reopen for appointments on March 18, at 9 a.m. to allow for system upgrades. Current or new Clients from Crescent City and Interlachen in need of services before the reopening of the satellite clinics can call for an appointment at the main clinic in Palatka at 386326-3216.

They were the boy and girl who turned in the most box tops during the month. They each received a stuffed animal, candy, and a book. Middleton-Burney has earned about $3,500 this year through the Box Tops for Education program. This money will be used for technology needs and Accelerator Reader incentives. Beginning in the 2015-16 fiscal year, school districts must use at least 50% of their annual allocation for the purchase of digital and electronic instructional material. This means that the Florida Legislature is requiring that all adopted instruction materials for grades Kindergarten through 12 must be provided in an electronic or digital format. Now, more than ever, Box Tops for Education are needed to help provide for schools in Putnam County. MBES invites Community members to help them by saving box tops or logging in at www.boxtops4eduation.com and shopping online. If you have any questions about the Box Tops for Education program, please contact Lynn Skelton at MBES, 386-698-1238.

Dear Editor: This is the 2013 South Putnam Christian Service Centers open letter and annual report. We sincerely thank each of you for your many contributions and your prayerful support during the past year. The Christian Service Centers 501 non-profit corporation status ob tained in March 2000, continues. The Christian Service Center was open 101 days to counsel and or service 4,580 clients with 10,720 r equests for aid. There were 354 new clients. A total of 139,650 pounds of food was distributed. The many community-based food drives helped keep the pantrys shelves stocked. The Christian Service Center is staffed by all volunteers with a total of 6,385 recorded volunteer hours. Monetary donation percentages were as follows: Individuals 29.53% Businesses 25.36% Grants 19.03% Fundraising Events 14.33% Chur ches 10.22% Or ganizations 1.53% 88.9% of the total Expenditur es were spent on Client Services; leaving 11.1% being spent on Operating expenses, which include office, utilities, van, and insurance costs. The van that was donated to the Christian Service Center continued to be a valuable asset. It provided transportation for the pick up of USDA food from St. Augustine and other local sources of donated food. The Christian Service Center maintained its status of being the Agency chosen by Second Harvest North Florida as the authorized representative to collect the food donated by Winn-Dixie in Crescent City. The Christian Service Center is a Community Partner with the Department of Children and Families Economic Services. In this capacity, Christian Ser vice Center volunteers operate an Automated Community Connection to Eco nomic Self-Sufficiency (ACCESS) computer terminal to serve South Putnam r esidents. Christian Service Center volunteers assist community residents in applying for state food stamps, temporary cash assistance, (TCA) and Med icaid. These partnerships continued to work with the Christian Service Center: Georgia-Pacific through donations of paper products; Community Thrift Store in Crescent City and Second Time Around Thrift Store in Lake Como with clothing vouchers, monetary and food donations. The Christian Service Center applied for several Grants and was blessed to receive approval from United Way of Putnam County, Emergency Food and Shelter Program, Modern Woodmen of America Fraternal Financial, Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, and Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. There were many successful fundraisers. In February, there was the Mu sical Variety Show; in October, a Chicken Dinner and Silent Auction; in De cember, the seventh annual Charity Golf Tournament. The Christian Service Center also r eceived monies donated by churches who have Souper Bowl Sunday, various Community Easter Sunrise Services, Ecumenical Thanksgiv ing Service, Winn-Dixie food drive, and Chilis Restaurant Give Back. Volun teers and friends of the Christian Service Center sponsored all of these events. W e look forward to continuing to serve God by serving your neighbors in need. May we always be aware that we are blessed to be a blessing to others. Yours in Christ, Board of Directors for South Putnam Christian Service CenterDear Editor: A telephone scam that has been around for many years has appeared again. This scam involves returning calls to the 268, 809, 284 and 876 area codes that originate from Antigua, Jamaica or another Caribbean Island. Sometimes it just appears as a missed call, also known as a one-ring scam. Other times, the caller leaves a message on your answering machine, gives their first name and leaves a message such as Sorry I missed your call, please call me back. I have something important to tell you. The reasons you are asked to call back vary and can include such things as a family member is ill, someone has been arrested, died or to let you know you have won a prize. The overseas area codes can be used as pay-per-call numbers, similar to the more familiar 900 numbers. Consumers that have returned the calls have reported being charged a $19.95 connection fee and an additional $9 per minute. The practice of third parties placing unauthorized charges on wireless accounts is call cramming. If you dont recognize an out-of-state telephone number on your caller ID, ignore it, and if you do answer, dont call back. If you think youve received a call from a potential scammer, immediately report it to your telephone or cellular provider.

Shara Greene Tampa Dear Editor: I had always loved my drives into Palatka, across Veterans Memorial Bridge. The view of the river, docks and anchored boats with a haze or fog, was beautiful. However, I now make the drive to Deland instead. I shop and support my hometown businesses, but at times larger towns are necessary. I also understand Deland does not have traffic light cameras. I have personally observed at the intersection of SR 19 and 100 in Palatka, vehicles suddenly stop as the traffic light turns to yellow and the vehicles following had to veer off to the side to avoid an accident. According to the West Volusia Beacon Online, June 2013, with the introduction of traffic light cameras, numerous lawsuits have ensued such as violations of rights to privacy, guilty until proven innocent and on and on. Simply, studies have shown a mixed bag as to improvements in safety with the traffic light cameras. Some studies have actually shown an increase in rear-end accidents due to sudden stops by panicked drivers who are stressed to stop because of the cameras. Also, according to the West Volusia Beacon Online, a bill proposing a repeal of red light cameras has been filed by Senator Jeff Brandes (R) St. Petersburg, that aims at turning off red light cameras in Florida. We have seen municipalities that have installed these devices shorten yellow light time and set arbitrary standards on right-turn on red violations. According to the article, more than 100 jurisdictions across the state that use these cameras, collectively, have generated more than 100 million dollars a year. Expect opposition from local and state governments to have these cameras removed. Most people see through the shallow justification of safety and under stand this is nothing more than a hit on citizens for more money to line government coffers. In the Palatka Daily News, Tuesday, December 31, 2013, the Palatka Police Chief reported that the state takes $83 of every $158 on undisputed tickets. Mark this down, $158 will not be enough, expect an increase. I suppose next cameras or recording devices attached to vehicles for our oversight. As retired military, I spent sweat and blood to live my life with God given freedoms. Fixed cameras watching me on the streets and roadways are just not RIGHT.

Betty Downs new address is 1500 SW Capri St., Carvina 2, West Palm City, FL 34990. Sorry About That Shirley Grifn said that coconut cake recipe I put in the paper was so moist they ate it with a spoon. Try draining the pineapple and using can of coconut milk instead of a whole can. I play with my recipes until I get them right. The best cake I ever made, or so my Texas friends say, was eaten with a spoon. Mary Mitchells orange cake I made for a dinner in Texas, fell apart, but host Lue served it anyway. Our veterinarian, Bill Dearing, asked my son, Dave, to ask me how to cut the cake, I sent him a big spoon. They still want me to bake another one like it whenever I go to Texas.

February 26, 2014 COURIER JOURNAL Section B Love Letter From BubbaNormally I would be writing a human inter est story here, but this week I thought I might change it up a bit. Today Im going to share with you one of the stories or love letters from my new book that will be out in a couple of weeks. About a year ago, I heard this elderly couple arguing. When the man asked the woman, What is wrong with you? she said, You dont woo me anymore! This is a phrase I hadnt heard in years, so I decided to write an article on the lost art of wooing a woman. In the article, I made up a character named Bubba. Bubba was a name my baby sister, Laura, used to call me. In the article, which is the very first love letter you are about to read, Bubba meets a woman through an online dating service. Her name is Mary, and Bubba is bound and determined to woo her. Bubba has a strange bunch of relatives who are always messing up, especially his brother, Biscuit. Bubba could be any one of our distant relatives no matter what race we are. If you like these letters and you want more, I will talk to Mike and Julie about doing a four-part series. I want to thank you guys for all the emails that you have sent me, you are too kind, and I am humbled by your words. If you have something you want me to write about then please email me. Thanks Guys and Gals, you are the best! Dear Mary: Hi, my name is a Bubba. Now you dont know me but a let me tell you, girl, you as pretty as a speckled hound. Im a sure wantin to date you. See, I already been a telling my kin folk that we a gonna be datin and that you are gonna be a comin here, cause I done sent you a picture of me. See, I done come into a bunch of money on a count of my Uncle Lester and Aunt Martha getting killed and all. It a happened like this. See, the whole family done come over to my house, to be a celer braten you and me a getting together. So we done be a deciden, that we gonna have us a shindig. Well, we done gone and skinned the family pig and was just about to light the fire when it done started rainnin. Well, after about 30 minutes, it done stopped but the wood from that old dresser out back done got too wet from the rain, and dad nab bit, little Terry done used up all the diesel in the tractor a chasin the family pig down, so we aint got nothing to light the fire with. Then it happened, Uncle Lester done be a commin up with one of them there brain storms. You know, Uncle Lester is the smartest one in the family and all. Well, we be a thinking hes one of them there geniuses. Now Uncle Lester said that he had been down to that there country store and filled hisself up on a heapin pile of them there cagin boiled peanuts and he was a havin some awful bad gas cramps. Well, his a brain storm is, that hes a gonna pull down his britches just a bit and hes a gonna let a big one rip while Aunt Martha holds a lit match up to the back side of his butt and its a gonna make a gas flame thrower that will catch that there pile of wet wood on fire. Smart, huh? Now, what a happin next is some kind of unbelievable. See, what a Uncle Lester and a Aunt Martha didnt see, was that the mule, Old Hazel, was a standin right next to that there pile of wood and had been a eatin a bunch of them there green apples off of Mrs. Leadbetters apple tree. Well, them green apples had done gave Old Hazel the poots some kind of awful. Well, what they didnt know was, they was a standin in a cloud of Old Hazels gas. Well, when Uncle Lester yelled out Now, woman, now! Light it up, woman! Aunt Martha lit that there match, and when she did, one of them there explosions done blowed Old Uncle Lester up on a top of that there barn and he a landed right on top of that there wind vain. And Ill be dad burned if that there explosion didnt a freak Old Hazel out, and she done went to a kickin and a kicked Aunt Mar tha right up on top of that there wind vain with Old Uncle Lester. They done got a shiska-bobed. It was some kind of awful. I can still see that a rooster stickin out of Old Aunt Marthas hind end, just a spinnin in cir cles in the wind. God rest her soul. Now, the insurance people done be a givin me a whole heapin pile of money to spend, a $936 and a 23 cents!!! Can you believe it? Im a rollin in the dough, Baby Doll. So I be a figurin that Im a gonna take you shoppin, and girl I be a lovin you so much that Im a gonna take you down to that there Wal-Mart and Im gonna be a treaten you like a queen!! Im gonna be a buyin you some brand new shoes and a dress. Now Im a gonna prove that I be a lovin you cause Im gonna spend, now get this, not $5 dollars but a $7.50 cents on you a new outfit, for our first date. I know girl, you be a knowin how much I love you now! And Im gonna built you a nice big house with some of that there money. Its gonna be a big one. Yep, one bedroom that me and you can be sleepin in when we done a tied the knot. This here house will even have one of them there alarm systems so you will be a feelin safe. Thats right a Baby Doll, Old Duke, my hound dog, is about the best dad burn alarm system east of the Mississippi river. Well I got to be a goin to that there Home Depot, my brother is a waitin in the pickup truck. Ill be a writin you in a couple of days and a letting you know when I can be a sendin fer ya. With all my love and money, Bubba Travis Roberts Staff Writer travis.pccj@gmail.com & FACES PLACES Did you know that coconut could save your life? In fact, during World War II, many soldiers who needed blood transfusions in the South Pacific, too far from any medical units to receive the real blood that they needed, were given infusions of coconut water instead! It saved their lives and enabled them to be transported to hospitals in time. Coconut water is the closest thing on earth to our own plasma. We now know that the very same coconut water is better than any ener gy drink (Gatorade or PowerAde). It contains the right balance of electrolytes to hydrate our bodies perfectly and NATURALLY. Other uses for coconut water include: problems. Drink along with medication to relieve symptoms of infection es vomiting during gastrointestinal problems, flus and hangovers Before I continue, Id like to tell you all a little about myself. I had a difficult childhood, and unfortunately my marriage was emotionally and psychologically abusive. Needless to say, my self-esteem was non-existent and by the time I had my son, I weighed more than I ever imagined I could. I did finally divorce, and after that I started to realize that I needed to do something, since I was a single mom, I needed to be around for my son. My college education and work was in the medical field (for over 25 years). One of the doctors that I worked for was an Osteopath, he taught me about natural remedies of many different kinds, nutrition and other types of alternatives to modern medicine that can be just as effective. He started me down the path that I have never strayed from since, and with lots of research and self-study, I have learned how to keep myself healthier, lose weight (down 165 pounds now and still going) and help others. Recently I have also obtained an A.S. in Culinary, with side study in Nutrition. As with anything in life that is worth having, natural remedies, supplements and healthy lifestyle changes are not a magic bullet. They take time, patience, consistency, and effort. Many times I would try something and after a time, thinking I was not getting the expected result, I would stop the given supplement/remedy only to find that, in fact, I was getting results, but they were more subtle than what we would expect from modern medication. So be patient, be kind to yourself. In many cases, the problem or ailment you are treating did not appear overnight and may not go away overnight either! Next, lets talk about coconut milk. It is actually produced by mixing the meat of the coconut and water in a blender or by cooking together and then straining the mixture through a mesh. The resulting liquid is the coconut milk. It is used in cooking, baking, and for smoothies, shakes, and in sauces and curries. It is very healthy and is a primary milk replacement for vegan/ vegetarians, people with milk allergies and those who are lactose intolerant. It is packed with vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5, and B6 as well as iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. Coconut milk contains Lauric acid which can help to boost the HDL (good) cholester ol level, helping to balance the HDL-LDL Ratio. It is good both topically and internally to prevent wrinkles, and used topically can help to relieve sunburn! Now, I have saved the best part of the coconut for last! Coconut Oil, which in my opinion is nothing short of a miracle! The oil is pressed from the meat of mature coconuts by a couple of different processes resulting in the virgin and extra vir gin grades sold in the market today. This oil is very sensitive to temperature and can fluctuate between a liquid and a solid state depending on the room temperature in which it is stored. This does not affect its quality or usability. It is, in fact, the most useful and versatile of all oils. It is antimicrobial, antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal/yeast, and prevents and treats parasitic infections. There are so many uses for coconut oil, from cooking, to health and beauty, to pet care, and many more! Again, the oil is rich in Lauric Acid which is great to boost the HDL as I mentioned previously, I use it for cooking and baking, I replace butter in many recipes with the oil. I have replaced Pam cooking spray with coconut oil cooking spray, as a much healthier alternative. It has a high smoke point so it makes great oil for sauting, and stir fry. The possibilities are endless. In the areas of health and beauty, I hardly know where to begin. It makes a wonderful makeup remover and literally melts away mascara, even water proof! It is truly amazing for acne, as it balances the pH of the skin and the antibacterial properties will help clear the acne. Ladies, stop spending $$$ on all of those face creams and lotions that are full of chemicals and toxic ingredients to get rid of wrinkles and lines on your face! Coconut Oil is one of the best natural wrinkle creams around! It plumps skin making fine lines less visible within minutes! Over time, it makes deeper lines and discolorations disappear, making skin smoother and younger looking. Some other health and beauty uses are: Beauty radiation/sunscreen lotion paste/mouthwash Health Benefits performance antioxidant sugars in balance (good for diabetics) odontal disease most fungal/yeast in fections treat viral infections I truly hope that I have introduced some of you to a new item and broadened the view of others to the versatility of the coconut. It is truly a wonderful fruit and science continues to find new uses all the time!! Stay Healthy!Coconut as a Wonder Fruit?
