The Town of Pomona Park in Putnam County has been named a Healthy Weight Community Champion by the Florida Department of Health (FDOH). The Town of Pomona Park is among 37 communities recognized by the State Surgeon Generals Healthiest Weight Florida program that recognizes local government efforts to raise awareness of a healthy and active lifestyle says Mary L. Gar cia, Administrator of the FDOH in Putnam County. With the support of the FDOH in Putnam County and Putnam Family Fitness Center, the Town of Pomona Park submitted an application that highlighted the Towns new Comprehensive Plan approved in January 2014 and the creation of the Putnam Family Fitness Center. The Town of Pomona rallied together in 2011 after losing the local YMCA. Many did not want to lose the opportunities for tness and community involvement. The result was the creation of the Putnam Family Fitness Center (PFFC) a non-prot health oriented organization. A Pomona Park family donated 3 buildings and land in December 2012. The facility required renovations and the community came forward volunteering hours of labor and supplies. The community is very active in fund-raising efforts. We are honored to be recognized for our efforts at helping residents make healthy choices, says John Bergquist, Jr., mayor of the Town of Pomona Park.

Dear Editor:The great legacy of Dr. John Collette has yet to be proclaimed. I am quite certain that it was the pain of the loss of this unconditionally loving father, husband, and those who knew him well that are responsible for the omissions during his eulogy. The priest, Rev. Beebe, of course, did mention that he knew each of his patients personally. His lifetime of service to this community. While living on Lakeview, was of course lifted up for Gods blessing by his daughter, as well as that he leaves behind a loving daughter who gave him three handsome grandsons, and a son who follows in his footsteps as a service to those in need in this area, was also held up for Gods grace to shine on them. Yes, the good doctor adored his children, loving them unconditionally. His whole family shared him with all of his patients who he also loved un conditionally. He was a generous, loving, and highly competent physician. He made house calls right up until the end of his ability to pr ovide med ical services. He stayed up-to-date on the growing popularity of natural appr oaches, willing and able to monitor their complement to traditional care. As well, he was wise and knowledgeable of the modern scientific medi cine in which he was trained and which he applied most skillfully to each patient individually. Ther e are many stories of his being able to diagnose a problem correctly, facilitating the return to health of many who had giv en up hope trying to heal. People shar ed their secrets that he never repeated, but always let them know he was supportive. He was active in the community, always engag ing strangers in conversation, getting them to share their lives, and ulti mately feel more at home living here. He fell in love with his bride, a woman who had been a patient of his since she moved to the ar ea with her husband. A widow now, she accept ed the doctors offer to be his assistant, driving him to his house calls and other places he needed to go, and pr epare his meals. They were a devoted couple, enjoying each others company as she cared for him as he began to decline in health, as they both aged ever so gracefully. He re mained sharp and aware right up until the end, a testimony to his being a channel of Gods love on earth. Ther e are so many stories to be told about his wonderful man, servant of God in this community, leaving footsteps behind which will be hard to fill. Although, all people whose faculties decline, experience pain and suf fering in the awareness of the nearness of earth, I do not believe he suf fered. I do not believe he felt abandoned or neglected by God or those who car ed for his needs. I believe he was a faithful servant who knew his job was well done and would remain after he left this death as a model of joy ful living in yes, unconditional service to the people he was here to care for right her e, all of us who were in heed. We can all know that the love, the care, the compassion, the friendship, the joie de vive, that he shared, has been returned to him even after his death, as we remember him and share the stories of our experience of him. Even after all this time. The Sun never says to the earth, You owe me. Look what happens with a love like that. It lights up the whole sky. Hafi Dr. Collette has been the sun for the people in this community.Judi White Crescent CityIf I were to give you one million dollars, right now, would you get your own health insurance, or would you just pay out of pocket? In October, Kathleen Sebelius, the idiot in charge of the Health Care website, went before Congress and testified that the U.S. government has spent $174 million on just the website, and its related costs. On December 12, this airhead, Sebelius, testified before Congress, that the ACA website actually cost the taxpayers, you and me, $319 million and that was as of the end of October. Hold on a second! Im not mathematician, but the cost doubled in two months time. Wait a minute before you go getting that high school wedgie unstuck, because youre about to get hung on the flag pole by this atomic wedgie. The ditz, Kathleen Sebelius, said that $677 million has already been obligated to the web site. The Census Bureau estimates there are between 300 million and 333 million people living in the U.S, and from that number, over 50 million Americans live in poverty, yet there isnt one elected official, that is supposed to represent us, living in poverty or that has to buy this free Obamacare. Can you imagine that by the time this web site is finished it will cost over one billion dollars, but lets just back up to the $677 million already spent. These idiots on Capitol Hill knew it was going to cost that much because they approved the funds. Doesnt anyone up there have an IQ over 4? Someone should have had enough brains to say, Hey, why dont we just give our citizens one million a piece that way we could cut it down from $677 million to a cool $333 million, and every American citizen could get their own insurance and that would also take care of the 50 million Americans living in poverty. The other million should cover the Presidents wifes vacations. The government has been taking money out of your checks for years, its called Medicare and it is bankrupt. The retirement account that you pay into all your life, known as Social Security is bankrupt! Where did the money go? We put it into our bank account yet its gone. The ACA is a tax not health care and it will implode leaving us once again holding the bag and hung by our atomic wedgies on the very flag pole they are supposed to protect. If you are for this, Free Health Care Tax, then you are either and idiot or illegal. Everyone has an opinion and this is mine. You might not agree with it, but Thats how I see it.Dear Editor: Ladies and gentlemen, it is the time of year when we must pick up all old, faded flowers, vases, small mementos and poinsettias in the Eden Cemetery. If you would like to keep any of these flowers, they must be picked up before Friday, March 28. Thank you for your help in keeping Crescent City beautiful.

Last year 2013 went down in the manatee record books as the species worst-ever year in Florida. In total, 829 deaths were confirmed of an endangered species whose last known minimum count was 4,831 in January 2014. Thats 17% of the known population dead in a single year. The previous record number of deaths, 766, was set in 2010 and regarded as an anomaly a rare occurrence caused by extended cold tem peratures; a level of mortality not thought likely to appear again anytime soon. Until recently, weve been dealing with the usual suspects that threaten manatees: water control structures, entanglement in or ingestion of marine debris, and watercraft, with some cold stress, and mortality of very young calves mixed in. Red tide often loomed offshore of southwest Florida as a potential threat. And on the rare occasion would be the manatee that had the privilege of dying of old age a feat most in the population dont achieve due to the threats they face. In the past few years, attention has been focused on bigger, more nefarious threats that no one knows how to remedy. In the southwest, red tides are finding ample food when they blow inshore, and are persisting, killing large numbers of manatees and other marine life. For manatees, these blooms are no longer considered an unusual mortality event (UME), but an ongoing mor tality event a sign of the times. On Floridas east coast, no one has a clue what in the environment killed 127 manatees, in an onagain, off-again UME, which is now on-again, already killing several manatees in 2014. Manatees, often regarded as robust for their ability to survive multiple watercraft strikes and continue to live on after losing flippers to entanglements, are no match for the strange cocktail of toxins that are plaguing their environment. So what can we do? First, we need to keep on trying to protect manatees from the usual suspects. Human-related causes of mor tality remain largely preventable. In 2013, 85 fewer manatees would have died if we prevented human-related deaths. Next, we all need to work more diligently to protect the flow of our groundwater and surface waters and prevent pollutants from entering waters. One very easy thing to do is log on to www. wewantcleanwater.com and sign a petition. A coalition of Floridas environmental groups are working to send a loud and clear message to Tallahassee that we are long overdue to get serious about our states water issues. Finally, its important to realize that the next water quality crisis could be coming to your hometown. If you havent experienced such a crisis yet, count your blessings, then get on the phone to your city and county council, and your state senators and representatives, and find out what theyre doing to ensure you never do. So what can manatees expect in 2014? Thats really up to you. But one thing is for certain: they need our voices and our support now more than ever.Katie Tripp, Ph.DDirector of Science & Conservation Save the Manatee Club A6 Fair Photos from page A1 We Service All Makes & Models Quick Lane Tire & Auto Center 420 North Palm Avenue Palatka, FL 32177 386-385-5533 Manatee Death Worst-Ever RecordedThe City of Cres cent City, City Com mission lead my Mayor Joseph Santa pr oclaimed March 24-31, 2014 as Na tional Farmwork er Awareness Week at t heir meeting Thursday, March 13 at the request of the Putnam County Migrant Education Program.

Have you ever opened an e-mail or a letter that you wish you had just thrown into the trash instead? No, Im not talking about an electric bill, a mortgage payment thats overdue or anything like that. It was about this time last year that I opened an e-mail that was worse than opening a letter from the IRS saying, Youre being audited. The letter was from a young man who was 26 years-old and it was about the 23 year-old girl he was in love with. I would like to take you now to the day I opened this young mans e-mail, but first I need to give them names, lets see, I will call the young man Bryan and the love of his life Ill call Debbie. I do this to protect their names and story. That day was going pretty well for me; I had dropped my kids off at school and was now sitting on the back of my boat enjoying my coffee and reading my e-mails. As I scrolled down the page, I noticed a familiar name. I opened the e-mail, because this kid had written me earlier in the year about a problem he had with the love of his life. Let me stop right there and take you to the day I was sitting at my computer and what I wrote. I received a letter from a young man about 8 months ago who was in love with his best friend. They had grown up together and he had always had a crush on this young lady. I remember how he described her in his e-mail as, The most beautiful woman God ever created. Now, there was one problem, and it was a big one. Bryan was head over heels in love with Debbie. Bryan and Debbie had known each other from middle school, and they both knew there was something between them. Long story short, Debbies parents moved to another state and Debbie, in college at the time, decided to stay where she was to finish out her 4th year. Just before her parents were to move, Debbie met a guy at the college and he was looking for a roommate. Debbie felt fortunate to find someone nice with a room to rent. So far everyone is happy except for Bryan. About two weeks after Debbies parents moved, Debbie and her roommate wound up going to a party and after the party they slept together. Debbie decided to tell Bryan about the affair just seconds before Bryan was about to tell her his true feelings for her. Bryan backed off and decided not to tell Debbie how he felt because she looked so happy. Big Mistake! My advice to Bryan was to go and tell her how he felt before it was too late. About 3 months into this new relationship Debbies roommate/ boyfriend started to mentally abuse her and, as Im sure you have already guessed, the physical abuse started not long after that. Bryan was mor tified by the fact that Debbie wouldnt allow him to go, Kick the guys butt! as Bryan said in his first e-mail. Bryan finally did tell Debbie how he felt and they came up with a plan for her big escape. So far so good until someone ratted them out, and then all hell broke loose. Well, about a month later, Bryan couldnt take it anymore and gave her the option of calling the police or he would. Debbie begged and pleaded with him not to do it and Bryan backed off. Feeling as if she had no other choice, Debbie filled the bathtub up with hot water then committed suicide by taking an overdose of pills. It was less than a week after Debbie took her life that Bryan received a letter in the mailbox and it was addressed from Debbie. Bryan has asked me to share part of this Hello Again!! I truly hope that everyone is enjoying these articles about health, both for you and your pets. As we go forward I will be talking about different types of alter native therapies and some of you may not be familiar with them or you may have heard of them and want to know more, so this week I am giving you a brief explanation of some of the more common types around and the ones Ill refer to most. Acupuncture Acupuncture has been practiced in China for over 3000 years and is still relied on today as a valuable healing tool. The goal of acupuncture is to create harmony within the body by restoring the flow of Qi (pronounced chee), the life-force involved in all body functions; breathing, heartbeat, metabolism and even emotions. Qi collects in the organs and travels through channels called meridians. Chinese believe that disease occurs when the Qi is halted by injury, cold, heat, or other influences. By redirecting the flow of Qi, acupuncture can help cure disease, prevent illness and restore harmony to the body. Western medicine practitioners thought at one time that these meridians where the same things as the nerve pathways in the body. They were proven to be a totally differ ent system when radioactive isotopes where injected into acupuncture sites and Gamma-camera imaging followed the isotopes through a series of long duct-like tubules, 11 on each side of the body corresponding to the system they serve. In China the needles were originally made from gold and silver, but now they are produced from stainless steel and are disposable due to the possibility of infection. The needles are as thin as a hair and range from to 8 in length. During treatment the patient takes a relaxed position, usually sitting or lying down. The practitioner will assess the patient by taking pulses, looking at the eyes, asking questions, and measuring breathing. Once they know what needs to be done, the needles are inserted rapidly and virtually painlessly. The patient is then left for about 30 minutes in a relaxing atmosphere for the treatment to work. Multiple treatments may be needed for full desired results. Aromatherapy Aromatherapy is the practice of using essential oils for physical and psychological wellbeing and health. The practice has been around for at least 6000 years that we know of. Generally the oils are either massaged into the skin or inhaled to get their benefit. Rarely, and with great care, they can be used internally, but this is only done with guidance. The extracts are distilled from roots, seeds, leaves, peels, and blossoms of plants and can be used for everything from medicinal uses to scenting a room. Ancient people from the Chinese to the Egyptians to the Romans used them for cosmetics, medicines and perfumes, and also for spiritual and ritualistic purposes. It did not become popular in the US until the 1980s but today you can find candles, aromather apy burners and oils in many shops and in health food stores everywhere. During an aromatherapy session you will be asked about your medical history, any problems you may be having and any scents you may like. The therapist will then determine what scents will be helpful for you and you will be given recommendations for inhaled scents, per haps even a vaporizer. They may also recommend scent combinations to add to your bath water or to use in your home. Ayurveda Ayurveda means the Science of life it is the healing science of India. It has been practiced for over 5000 years by millions of people to achieve their most optimal health. This is the form of alternative medicine that I personally turn to most often. It encompasses the whole per son physically, mentally and spiritually, for it teaches that if one area is out of balance the body as a whole cannot be healthy. There are many modalities included in Ayurveda; herbs, diet, colors, aromas, sound, lifestyle recommendations, yoga and meditation. One area that I will mostly focus on is their use of herbs and foods in remedies. Maybe later well talk about the chakras or energy centers. Homeopathy Homeopathy is a system of treating with a highly diluted substance with the idea of triggering the bodys own natural system of healing. It is based on the principle that you can treat like with like. The theory originated by Hippocrates, but has been in practical use since the 1800s. Each substance is diluted sometimes down to as little as 1:32 of its original strength into pills or drops referred to as remedys. The patient takes these prescribed appropriately for the symptom and they stimulate the body to heal itself. These remedys along with guidelines on how to use them appropriately are available in health food stores March 26, 2014 COURIER JOURNAL Section B Golf at Live Oak See Abused on page B3 Travis Roberts Staff Writer travis.pccj@gmail.com & FACES PLACES The Things that Make us go Hmmm The Things that Make us go Hmmm Tammy Sanchez Staff Writer Abused to Death See Things on page B3 Lady Raiders give 6-4 Win to Hawthorne Photos by Rose Delaney Kara Mascia (left) winds up for the throw in the Raiders 6 4 loss to Hawthorne last week.

letter with you and I will explain why in just a minute. Ive changed the roommates name to Danny because of the legal case thats still on going. Dear Bryan: All my life I have been in love with you and Im so happy you feel the same way about me. I remember all the good times we had growing up and how I used to push you down and beat up on you, but that was because you were my best friend. I fell in love with you Bryan in the 3rd grade. Do you remember, it was my first day at school and I dropped my lunch on the floor, you were such a little gentleman and gave me yours? From that day on I guess I always loved you. Whenever I laughed, you were always the one who made me, when I cried, you were always there to comfort me, when I broke my leg jumping from the swing set you pushed me around in that old wheelchair your grandmother had. Bryan, I wish that I could get out of the situation that Im in, but at this point I fear the worst will happen if I do. Danny has already told me that if I leave him, he will kill me and you. I love you so much and Im afraid he will follow through on his promise. I know that you love me and thats all that matters but I cant allow him to hurt you. Please for give me for what I have to do. I will always love you Bryan. The rest of the letter is personal and Bryan has asked me to only share that much with you so, as always, I respect the right to privacy. Im sure that you understand the guilt that Bryan is feeling right now so I wont get into all of that. The reason that Bryan asked me to share this with you is because he wants to help other people. Bryan feels that if he hadnt listened to Debbie and called the cops, then she might be alive right now and they would be together. Abuse is a horrible thing and although I dont understand why there are sick people in this world that feel they have to beat up on women, it happens every day. Abuse is not just something that happens to women either, believe it or not, males are abused as well. People, if you are in an abusive relationship then get the hell out, right now! Do not wait and dont make excuses. Call the police! If it happens once, bet your butt its going happen again and again and again. In closing I want to add this as well. If you know someone who is being physically abused then report it. Yeah, I can hear a few of you now, Im not going to get involved with someone elses problem or they just need to get out etc I have talked to a lot of women who have gotten out of abusive relationships and there are a couple of things that I have learned. First, most of the women say that they wish someone had stepped in to help, or even to have called the police. Secondly, that they had been beaten down, not just physically but mentally, to the point where making a proper decision wasnt in the cards. By getting involved, you just might save someones life. According to the C.D.C, over 3 million women are physically abused each year by either their husband or boyfriend. That is only the amount reported to the hospitals and law enforcement. Almost 1 in 4 women, alive today, have experienced some type of physical abuse from a husband or boyfriend. Something has to be done about this. If I had one wish today it wouldnt be for money, cars, houses etc. it would be that everyone in an abusive relationship would find a safe way out and find their true love. People, life is way too short to be treated like crap. It is never too late to change your life. I want to thank you for reading my article and remember to check out the Putnam County Courier Journal on Face book, we may only be a once a week paper but we report the news as it happens on Facebook, plus we have some great contests.

Traditional Chinese Medicine Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the traditional medicine that has been practiced in China for thousands of years. TCM centers on the concept of Qi, the free flow of the life force that I explained above. To promote the flow of Qi ,TCM practitioners use a range of healing methods. Massage, acupuncture and acupressure are some of the most common, but diet and herbal remedies prepared from natural sources also affect Qi. TCM physicians typically use tongue and pulse diagnosis. TCM physicians mix remedies from over 2,000 natural substances, including flowers, bark and herbs. Remedies are administered in the form of salves, tablets, plasters, tinctures, and baths. In addition they also use massage and forms of breathing techniques and meditation. Next week look for a fantastic Catfish recipe to celebrate the Rotary Club of Cresent Citys 2014 Catfish Festival!
