Your classic or custom car could win you $400 in cash door prizes.Cruise In Register for the Catfish RunTheres an amazing headstone in the Eden Cemetery in Crescent City that perfectly highlights the person laid to rest. Carol Compton had the headstone made for her late husband, David, because of his devotion to Clay Electric Co-Op. David worked for the co-op for 42 years. He served as line crew foreman in the Palatka District since 1997. Compton began his career as a right-of-way laborer in 1972 before becoming a lineman in 1974. Compton passed away in September after a brief battle with cancer. Carol said Davids job at the co-op was his number one, followed closely by his cows and his property. Creston Mason, line foreman in the Palatka District, agreed that Compton was truly devoted to his career. The man loved his job for sure, Creston said. More than anybody I know. He would rather be at work than anywhere else. Mason worked with Compton for about 17 years and said Compton was one to go out of his way to help others and assist co-op members in any way he could. Jim Beeler, Palatka District manager, said Compton was dedicated throughout his years of service. Compton was a hard worker who had total respect from the employees he supervised, Beeler said. He was 100 percent committed to Clay Electrics Safety Program, and totally committed to exceeding our members expectations. When Compton turned 60, according to Carol, he said he was going to retire, and he started telling this to his co-workers and other people. It became an annual refrain for Compton, saying he was going to retire each year and then changing his mind. Carol recalls him saying, When you love your job as much as I do, why retire? Compton didnt retire until last summer when he was 65. Carol is thrilled with the way the headstone turned out. He loved Clay Electric, he loved his job, Carol said. It is a per fect tribute to him. It was him. She said David did not know about the coop-themed headstone and did not get to see it, but she knows he would have loved it if he had. She said they never discussed his wishes. But believes he sees it from above and is pleased. Carol stated she has received phone calls from people who have seen the headstone and wanted to tell her how much they liked it. When discussing the headstone with Kenny Biggs of Clayton Frank & Biggs Funeral Home, Carol was told she could have anything she wanted on it. Carol came up with the idea to incorporate Davids love of his job with his devotion to his land and his appreciation of nature. Carol told the designers the trucks had to be yellow and they had to have CEC on them. Anyone who drives by knows who it is, Stated Carol, of Davids headstone. He was well liked. Everybody loved him. Photo Special to the Courier Journal Headstone in Eden Cemetery is a monument to the devotion of David Comptons forty two years of service to his employer, Clay Electric.

Dear Editor: I always enjoy reading your Opinion letter, some I agree with and some I dont. That is why there is chocolate and vanilla ice cream. In response to Thats How I See It written by A. Nonymous I have a solution to his problem. Obey the law and stop for the red light! Not hard really. If everyone obeyed the law there would not be a need for the cam eras, but as you can see, there are always folks who believe they are above the law. The cameras ar e there for our safety. Thank you, Also AnonymousWhat in the Sam Hill is going on? Outside San Jose California, at the Live Oak High School, students who wear the American Flag T-Shirt, The Constitution T-Shirt, or clothing that is red, white and blue WILL be punished, if it is done during the week of Cinco de Mayo. Yes you read that right! The communist idiots from the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals sent a message to the Live Oak Assistant Principal, Miguel Rodriguez, that he has the right to punish anyone wearing clothing that represents the United States, or American Pride. They justify this by saying, It might spark a riot with the Spanish community, or Mexican gang members. I watched these little snot nose brats on the news with their flags and banners that say, Cinco de Mayo, our Independence Day. First of all, Cinco de Mayo is not the Mexican Independence Day that is September 16. Cinco de Mayo is to commemorate the Mexican Armys unlikely victory over the French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5. No I am not knocking the Mexican community, in fact they are probably the hardest working group of people on this planet, but by God this is America. Why doesnt the 9th Circuit U.S. court of Appeals send Miguel Rodriguez another message saying, This is the United States of America, anyone who chooses to riot against our American Pride will be charged with a hate crime, period! We will not punish law abiding citizens especially our youth for having pride for our great country! A few months ago this same group sent a similar message to this same High School refusing them the right to have an American Pride Day to honor our fallen soldiers, yet these idiots said they could have an, International wear your country day, but again ban the wearing of American Flags on T-Shirts. This makes me sick to my stomach, so much that I want to drive there and puke in the laps of these idiots that have forgotten, This is America. We will not back down or cower when it comes to our great nation, we will stand strong. If we do not teach our children this pride we are all doomed! If you dont like our ways, then go back to the land of milk and honey where you came from, or respect our culture. After all you are in a free country because of our forefathers who died for your freedom as well. Everyone has an opinion, and this is mine. You might not agree with it, but Thats how I see it. Dont you love fresh strawberries? They are wonderful sliced and sugared on top of cake or ice cream. How many can you eat like that? I prefer them uncooked so I searched for a beautiful way to serve them for company. The King Arthur Cookbook has a recipe that will make you proud at potluck or a family Sunday dinner. It is fresh, light, cool, beautiful and delicious. It is also simple and it looks like a masterpiece. I have modified the recipe to suit my taste and for simplicity. Plan ahead because the tart shell must cool. After it is filled, it needs to be refrigerated at least one hour before serving. Because it includes cream cheese, be sure to keep it cold. Spoiled cream cheese will make you really sick. A tart pan is really helpful. A food proces sor makes short work of pastry. Since no one seems to take home economics anymor e, perhaps I should mention it is always a good idea to prepare hot soapy water with a drop of bleach and a clean dishrag to clean up with. This is a good practice every time you cook. Strawberry Devonshire Tart Prepare the crust in the work bowl of your food processor: 1 cup flour, 1 TBSP sugar, 6 TBSP butter, 1 egg yolk and 1 TBSP ice water. Pulse all until it adheres to itself. Press it together into a ball. Place the ball inside a quart sized zip lock and press it into a disc shape. Place it in the fridge to firm it up for 30 minutes or longer. Clean up well. Raw egg left at room temp can make you really sick too. Remove the pastry from the baggie and place it between 2 pieces of waxed paper. Roll it out to fit your tart pan plus an inch or so. Press it into the tart pan and remove the overhang. Chill for about an hour. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Prick the dough with a fork and bake for 15 minutes until lightly browned. Cool on a rack. After the tart shell is cool, make the filling. Beat 3 oz. cream cheese, 1 TBSP sugar, and 3 oz. sour cream together and spread into bottom of tart. Refrigerate while preparing the berries. Wash and trim 1 quart of strawberries. If you have more, you can use a little bit more. I like to save the prettiest ones, cut in half to make a pleasing pattern on top of the filling. Use the imperfect berries (about 1 cup) to mash for a glaze. Mix 1 cup of sugar and 3 TBSP cornstarch in a medium saucepan. Add a TBSP of water and the mashed berries and cook over medium heat, stirring, until the mixture becomes clear. Boil gently for about 1 minute and remove from heat immediately. Stir to cool slightly. Spread the glaze over the berries in the tart shell and refrigerate for at least one hour before cutting to serve. Enjoy!

Annes Surprise PartyJim Kinard said he was going to have to go to church for a long time to get forgiveness for all the white lies he told trying to keep his wife Annes 80th birthday party a secret. The party was held on Saturday, March 8 at the River Villas Clubhouse in Satsuma. Close to 50 people attended, mostly family from out of town. Both Kinard boys were there, Jim and daughter Brittany from St. Petersburg, and Wayne and Julie with son Drew from Columbiana, Ohio. Four out of Jims five sisters were there; Lois, June, Bar bara and Pat (missing was sister Dorothy), one brother Albert, two brothers-in-law and one sister-in-law.

Once a year the ladies get dressed up in their best outfits with hats and gloves and reminisce about a kinder, more peaceful world. Sam Carr and Ken Mehaffee gave a very informative and interesting program on Bartram Trails. Beautiful videos of drawings and pictures were shown. Carr said William Bar tram and his book Travels was better known in Europe and other parts of the world than in Putnam County. The Bartram Trails in Putnam County was formed to reestablish the sites of William Bartrams travels in our region and to make them accessible via waterways, hiking, biking and driving routes. It was a very interesting program.

Keep Putnam Beautiful provides the gear needed to pick up trash around the streets and residents yards along with three dumpsters for yard debris, tires, and furniture. Beautification chairman Joyce Svingala said the good news is that each year less trash is picked up, which means that residents are keeping the areas around their property clean. April 5 is Market Day in Pomona Park, the same day as the Catfish Festival. The Market Day Committee hopes that Catfish visitors will come by for breakfast enroute to Crescent City. Pomona Park is celebrating its 120th annual Founders Day on May 3, more on that later.

She also welcomed the chapters newest member, Durham Searcy, LtCol USAF Retired. Cadet Major Paul Ortiz outlined the impact that the JROTC Program had and was having upon his life. JROTC has changed my attitudes toward life in a very positive direction. It has improved my grades, taught me leadership, people skills, and given me goals for my life, said Ortiz. Leadership is an integral part of the ROTC program, he said. It has one great experience, learning to be responsible for the other individual cadets, their goals, and opportunities. Ortiz has enlisted in the United States Marine Corps, departing after graduation in July for boot camp. Cadet 1st Lt. Steven D Mills described the ROTC program as a Big family, improving ones grades and attitudes, teaching discipline, and leader ship. You learn to think of your subordinates, to care and think of them; you learn service and responsibility, both for yourself and others. Mills stated ROTC has changed my life. Following an excellent luncheon at Backwoods BBQ, Interlachen, LTC Leggett briey spoke of the goals of the JROTC program. It gives students the tools needed for success in life. The most improved cadets are the successes. Chapter President Thropp presented the JROTC program with a nancial donation from the chapter.

Dillon Dunagen (right) winding up for the pitch last Friday against Pierson Taylor. According to the American Pet Products Association (APPA) Americans love their pets more than ever according to how much we are spending on them. In 1994 we spent $17 Billion, in 2004 we spent $34.4 Billion and it is estimated that in 2014 we will spend $58.51 Billion. In addition 68% of American homes now have pets, up from 56% in 1988 when the survey was first conducted. With statistics like these, it is safe to say that many of us have important furry, feathered or finned friends in our lives. What can we do to make the quality of their lives as good and as long as possible? Well, one of the best ways is to make sure that they are eating the most wholesome food that is available for them. That may mean buying the best quality food at the store that we can afford, or even making things at home for our fur babies to enjoy! I found this recipe for homemade dog biscuits that I thought you might enjoy. It uses all natural ingredients and you could even use all organic ingredients as well.

Ther e are a couple of reasons for me telling you this story, but I will get into those reasons in a minute. Over the past few months I have had people writing in, and wanting to know more about me, I even had another newspaper wanting to do an inter view with me, which I turned down, so today instead of telling you about a homeless per son, or someone in distress I thought I might tell you a story of my childhood. With Easter just around the corner, I thought the rabbit attacking me would be a good story for me to tell. attacked is not like your normal attacking bunny rabbit, so please allow me to explain. It was during the month of March in 1966, I was 5 years old. Good morning Sunshine, time to get up and get going. We have a big day planned today, said my mother. After eating breakfast we were out the door, and on our way to get a new outfit for Easter Sunday. After we left Sears with my new little suite, we walked down the street to the Buster Brown shoe store, where my mother purchased a new pair of penny loafers, which my mother placed two brand new pennies inside. As we left the store, there was a man sitting across the street with a box, and he was holding this cute little white bunny rabbit. On the front of the box it read, Easter Bunnies, $2.00. After crossing the street the man told me that they were the real Easter bunnys babies, and that one day they would grow up and deliver eggs and candy to all the good little boys and girls all over the world, They have magical powers, he said. After some intense begging I had one of the real Easter Bunnies in a box and was heading home. After arriving home I was told to put on my work cloths and gather the eggs, then to muck the horse stalls, and after that I could play with Pee Wee, that was the name I had given my new friend. I guess it was about four in the afternoon when I finally got through with my chores and was allowed to take Pee Wee her e is where the attack part comes in. I took Pee Wee outside and across the yard where there was one patch of the greenest grass you have ever seen in your life, and I took Pee Wee out of the box. She March 19, 2014 COURIER JOURNAL Section B March Madness is upon us, which, cou pled with the term Bracketology is sufcient to make most of the planet wonder if the US of A has lost its collective mind. As I recall the phrase, March Madness was hatched de cades ago to represent or emphasize the tons of games that have to be played commencing the middle of March to determine conference champions and subsequently just what teams tional Champion. There are multiple games go ing on from Thursday through Sunday all over the country, making it difcult to decide which to watch during that middle week. The following Wednesday, after the brackets have been settled by a Board selected to make the hard decisions as to who will play whom, where and when, the fun starts all over again. All this comes to an end after the top two teams meet in the nal game to decide who wins all the marbles. The two teams Ive been watching closely (no real surprise here) are the Gators of Florida and the Blue Devils of Duke Univer sity. The Blue Devils won a couple of games in the ACC tournament making it to the nals, where, unfortunately they ran into the Cavaliers of Virginia. But Ill tell you, better to the Cavaliers than sweating through a third game my favorite list. Pittsburg eliminated the Tar heels in the second round, so that was good for Duke, although the team might have pre ferred playing the Heels vs. Virginia since they The Championship game exposed the principal problem that has plagued Duke from time to time, and that is having to rely on the play of freshman Jabari Parker, the MVP and top freshman of the year in the ACC, to bring them through in tough situations. Earlier in the year Coach K Stated that, we dont have a power house here and it appears that he called the shot. Against Virginia, they met their defensive equals and then some, as the Cavs big men were too much for the Devils, who truly lacked a dominating center, or big man. Parker is a tough ghter under the basket and normally outghts bigger men for the ball, but he was somewhat less effective on Sunday, principal ly because of the Virginia defense. The Devils will be in the third seed in the Eastern Region, so the season is not over until its over. The Gators, on the other hand, have a dominating defense and an effective offense. What I mean Is that this team plays off the weakness of the competition and for the most part appears to do what it takes, whether it be fast break Prather, Frasier and Wilbekin are all seniors I believe match up with most any teams on the collegiate chart when it comes to playing both ways. Defense is the Gators numero uno 6 or so, and 250 lbs can hurt people down low, also has a good touch around the basket. Florida is in a tough bracket and as a result, not all people are picking them to make the nal four. I will call whom I think will make it and the eventual winter at the risk of be ing accused of falling in line with those who do this for a living, but so be it. Michigan State is a scary team. I mean, they tore up Michigan in the nals of the Big Ten and Michigan is tough, so they make the nal four, along with Louisville, Arizona and the Gators. Add Duke to the nal eight with teams such as Kentucky, UCLA and Creighton; yes, Creighton. Ive prob ably screwed up with the brackets, but thats tough Whats the Score Dudley Sargent Sports Commentary Golf at Live Oak See Bunny on page B3 Travis Roberts Staff Writer travis.pccj@gmail.com & FACES PLACES Healthy Homemade Treats for your Fury Friend Tammy Sanchez Staff WriterIn League Scramble play at Live Oak Golf Club Friday, March 7, 10 players, 5 men and 5 women, were divided into three teams.

loved it. Pee Wee was hopping around and eating grass like she couldnt get enough. I was so happy, then it happened, suddenly Pee Wee decided she wanted to be free, and off she went at mock speed, trying to make her escape to the near by corn field, but she was no match for a five year old who didnt want to lose his magic rabbit. It was at this point that the attack occurred. Now when I say I was attacked, I dont mean in the usual way where the rabbit comes at you with fangs of death, No I was the first victim of a, rabbit poo, paint ball accident. Allow me to explain. As I reached down to pick up Pee Wee I started yelling at her, Bad rabbit, Bad Rabbit. Now I picked her up with her hind end facing me and as I was yelling at her she started blasting me with these miniature balls off poo, and to make matters worse, the paints that I had on were too big for me so the poo was going down the front of my paints and right into my boots. As I took two steps forward to walk to the house I felt this squishy sensation under my toes. I didnt know what to do so I started yelling, Momma, Im being attacked, and while Im screaming to the top of my lungs, Pee Wee is steadily firing off more poo rounds into my chest and stomach area, all of which are going down my pants and into my boots. I dont know how much Pee Wee had eaten, but let me tell you, it was a lot! After several minutes that seemed like hours my mother came running to my rescue, snatching the rabbit from my hands she started looking for bite marks, with tears in my eyes and sniffling like any five year old, I told her what had happened. Instead of getting the comfort from my mother like I expected, all I got was a hysterical laugh, as she sat me down and emptied my boots. To this day I am terrified to pick up a rabbit and with good reason, no way will I ever be the victim of a rabbit poo paint ball fight again. You know, I can laugh and joke around about this now but this leads me to my other point and reason for this article. Each year there are thousands of parents who buy live Easter Rabbits for their kids only to leave them caged up, forgetting all about them until one day they starve to death! The same is done with dogs and cats on birthdays and Christmas. We are on this earth to take care of it and the animals. Each year hundreds of thousands of animals are put to death because people are not responsible pet owners. Animals such as cats and dogs are only with us a short time and while they may only mean a little to you, but you mean the world to them. If you have an animal that you no longer want, please do not drop it off on the side of the road, take it to the, Humane Society of Putnam County. They are a no kill shelter. The Humane Society is not a government or ganization; in fact they rely on donations from local businesses and private individuals. This weekend the Humane Society will be at the Crestwood Nursing home in Palatka from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. If you would like to donate items such as dog food, cat food, cat litter, blankets etc., you can drop donations off or make a cash donation, you can also call Cindy Wardke for more information at 386325-1587. If youre wondering what happened to Pee Wee after she attacked me, I let her go and she roamed the farm for years and never pooed on me again.
