Michael Ezra Sheffield, 18, is one of three teenagers charged with burglary of a Welaka mans home Tuesday, April 29. Thomas Desantis, 74, was the victim, who was in actual or constructive possession of 20 grams or less of Cannabis. The other two suspects are juveniles, and upon arrival the officers saw the subjects knock out a window on the second floor as Officer Hallman began to enter the home. The suspects proceeded to the other side of the home where they knocked out a second window, then dove out of it to escape the pursuing officers. Suspect one fled the scene but was taken into custody at his home. He injured his right hand while scaling a fence, the wound required stitches. Suspect two fled but was taken into custody a short distance away. Suspect three was taken into custody and Ordered into Secure Detention by the Department of Juvenile Justice. A marijuana cigarette was found by Officer Hallman on the third suspects bed, to which the suspect admitted, it was his. The victim reported that no items appeared to have be taken, although the damages to his windows and screens are estimated to be $500 to $1,000. This was Officer Hallmans first arrest since graduating from the academy.On April 25, Keep Putnam Beautiful entered the second annual Re cycled Trashy Fashion Show at the Ocala Cir cle Square Cultural Cen ter presented by On Top of the W orld Lions Club.

Dear Editor: My! My! My! Thank God we still have an Editorial Page in our local newspaper. Throughout the years, people have used a pseudonym, alias, another name, or just no name as their signature. Probably 90% of the people who make their living as actors and performers of some type use names not given to them by their loving parents. Recently I read a quote from a man named Mark Twain (not his real name). He wrote, When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years. Another person wrote, One good friend is not to be weighed against the jewels of all the earth. This was written by someone named Anonymous. Joyce Kilmer was really Alfred Joyce Kilmer, and George Eliot was actually Mary Ann Evans. So, Mr., Mrs., or Miss Nonymous, I just want you to know I agree with 99.44% of what you write. The other .56 is inconsequential! You dont have to sign your name. Thats your God-given right to decide. Just keep telling it like it is and maybe a few readers will actually get the point. Thanks.

Nonymous Juliette Laurie Editor/Publisher Finally, we have answers on the Benghazi Murders of four Americans Cit izens. Who is to blame? The whole stinking Obama Administration! This whole Administration is nothing mor e than a bunch of Liars and criminals, and I am sorry for calling them idiots, because they knew from the begin ning that this was no protest over a video, period. Why wer e Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherly, and Ty rone Woods not saved that night in Benghazi, and where was Obama during all of this? W ell, according to former National Security Council Spokesman Tommy Victor, (Mr. Dude Himself), the President was not in the situation room that night. It took an independent group to sue the White House in order to get documents and emails released in order to find out the truth. Where was the President during all of this? Well, according to the papers released this morning, your President was in the debating room that night, making preparations for his fundraiser trip to Las Vegas the next morning. See, the White House has a login sheet. From the very get go, this adminis tration knew this was no protest over a video, yet they pushed Susan Rice to make four national television appearances saying it was. When Hillary Clinton and Obama stood at the four cof fins of the murdered men, they outright lied to the families by telling them it was due to a video, and that they would see the people responsible punished. If lying to their faces wasnt enough, Hillary told congress, What differ ence at this point does it make? It makes a big difference, Hillary Clinton. These wer e American Citizens who you were sworn to protect, and who had asked you for extra security weeks before they were murdered. Speaker Boehner announced today that he is putting a Select committee in charge of a new Benghazi investigation, and immediately Rep. Adam Schiff, a democrat from California, called for all democrats to boycott this action. This kind of crap makes me sick to my stomach. Why do the dem ocrats not want any more hearings? The reason is simple. The night of the Benghazi attacks, ther e were two drones sending live feeds to the situation room, all but your president were in that room on September 11, 2012. They knew these men needed help, yet the order to stand down was sent out, while men from our military waited on the run way to rescue them. The order to stand down can only be given by one per son, and that is the commander in chief, Obama! Yes, he sent out the order while everyone else watched Ambassador Stevens being tortur ed with cattle prods, raped and dragged through the streets until his skin was ripped from his body. Obama allowed this to happen, and all for political gain. Winning an election was more important than the lives of four Americans. You ask why Im so mad! I ask you, why arent you? At some point, you have to put aside your party and realize there is right and wrong. Obama and Hillary should be tried in court for the murders of these four American Citizens, period. We are Americans and its time that we have a leader who will stand by us and for us. If this administration will let four Americans be murdered for political gain, then what makes you think they have your best interest at heart? Everyone has an opinion, and this is mine. You might not agree with it, but, Thats How I See It. Dear Editor: Joseph Q. Lickspittle here. The United States elected Obama as the first black president. We elected a black man to the most powerful position in the free world. We elected Obama to unite all Americans in this country. We elected Obama to be an example of great leadership in the world. We gave Obama a chance to show a black man could lead this country as well as any other man. We gave Obama a chance to be an example to the young blacks of this country by showing them they could aspire to and achieve any job in this country. We re-elected Obama to give all the young people of this country a chance for economic betterment. And the man failed. With great sadness, Joseph Q. Lickspittle Crescent CityHappy Mothers Day! This coming Sunday we will be celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Mothers Day. This is a holiday that was created by a woman by the name of Anna Jarvis in 1908, and it became an official U.S. holiday in 1914. The earliest precursors of Mothers Day were celebrations held by the Greeks and Romans, which were festivals in honor of Rhea and Cybele. The most modern cel ebration predating our holiday is the early Christian festival known in the UK and parts of Europe as Mothering Day. It fell on the fourth Sunday of Lent and was a day when faithful would return to their mother church for a special service. Over time this custom eventually faded in popularity as the custom merged with the American Mothers Day and children began the custom of presenting their mothers with gifts, around the 1930s and 40s. While Jarvis, never married and was childless for her whole life, she eventually ended up denouncing the holidays commercialization. Since her original intent was to promote a time of personal celebration between mothers and their families. Today it is the single largest holiday among the floral industry even bigger than Christmas. Jarvis spent the rest of her life trying to have it removed from the offi cial calendar. Ultimately, our mothers gave us life. It is a day for us to honor them and to tell them how much we love them for what they have done and still do for us. Young or old, it doesnt cost a cent to say Thank You!! If your Mother has passed, then you know, even more, how much she is worth! National Nurses Week National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6 and ends on May 12, which is Florence Nightingales birthday, the mother of ALL nurses. As of 1998, May 8 was designated as National Student Nurses Day, to be celebrated annually. And as of 2003, National School Nurse Day is celebrated on the Wednesday within National Nurses Week each year. The American Nurses Association, ANA, has supported the nursing profession since 1896. In 1953 Dorothy Sutherland of the U.S. Dept. of Health, Education and Welfare, sent a request to President Eisenhower to make a proclamation that Nurse Day be in October of the following year but it was never recognized. It wasnt until 1982, that President Ronald Reagan signed a proclamation on March 25, proclaim ing National Recognition Day for Nurses to be May 6, 1982. Then in 1993, the ANA Board of Directors designated May 6 12 as the permanent dates to observe National Nurses Week in 1994 and has been ever since. A nurse somewhere along the line in our lifes experience has touched us all. Whether it was when we were born, at a Doctors office, in a hospital, or for some, on a battlefield. They are a special kind of angel, which helps to make us feel better, heal our illnesses and wounds, and nurse us back to health!!

Genesis 4:33 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD. I draw your attention to the highlighted and under lined word in this passage of scriptur e. My thought today is TIME: what is it and what do we do with it? Time is, according to the dictionary a. the continu ous passage of existence in which events passes fr om a state of potentiality in the future, through the pres ent, to a state of the past. So, time, is something that travels with the pas sage of existence from event to event. In Genesis we have two brothers bringing an offer ing unto the Lord. Seems simple enough, but accor d ing to the writer of Hebrews 11:4, one of them brings his offering, however, did not believe the time he was spending meant anything to the Lord. The other pleased his Lord with his offering. Now, I dont think the offering either of them brought, had anything to do with the Lords reaction. I do believe that the time that had passed during these two mens lives had everything to do with what took place. We all have the same amount of time allotted to us each day and what we do with it is completely up to us. Some believe that whatever they do affects no one but themselves. Is this true? Judas spent time with Jesus but could not lose sight of the money is sues that caused his down fall. John spent the same time with the same man, Jesus, but brought away a completely different set of values. Why? Time must be spent with a goal in mind. Aimlessly spending day after day while accom plishing nothing is waste. God said to us by the pen of Jeremiah; for I know the thoughts that I think to ward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an ex pected end. If God would think that far ahead con cerning us would it not be to our advantage to spend some time thinking about how we are spending our time? Our end depends on how we spend the time we have been allotted. The two brothers mentioned earli er had different outcomes simply because of how they approached what they were going to do for God. What are you doing for God, and how are you ap proaching that service? W aid Hobbs, Abundant Harvest MinistriesPart two of Crescent City in World War II continued from last week. Naval Auxiliary Operational Training Center Observation Posts During World War II, the Crescent City Journal ran numerous columns titled, Civilians at War. The one ran on June 5, 1942 was an appeal for citizens to help with the observation posts. Crescent City had two posts. The one on the south end of town was on Junction Road, opposite a packing house, which was there, and the other, on the north end of town, was at the Reuben Newbold home. Among those serving were my grandmother, Lula Mae Jones, who spent hours serving under Mrs. Newbold. My mother, Margary Neal Jones Nel son, served under Mrs. J.B. Shiver Sr. who was in charge of the south post. Those serving had to take a course in recognizing the various planes, both American and those of the enemy. When a plane was heard, a call was made to report the estimate size of the plane. My mother was in her teen years then, but she wrote how she re membered how seriously she spent four hours ev ery Saturday mornings in a very small box above the orange tr ees as she listened for the sound of an airplane. They wore an armband to identify them as they performed their duty. I have the book, Iden tication of Aircraft for Ar my Air Forces Ground Observer Corps, that was used for their reference. The Ground Observer Corp was discontinued in May, 1944 per the letter run with the story.

A4 OUR TO WN Waid Hobbs Pastors Pen Years Ago...75 years agoMay 10, 1989Tvs Unsolved Mysteries wants to solve local caseBob Pickens tells a story involving elements of sex, money and crime that sounds like it was made for TV. Last Thursday, in fact, it was. The tale began in April 1988 when an apparent newcomer to the area asked Pickens about a small building he owned on South Summit Street in Crescent City. The man, operating under a false name, was interested in opening up a vid-eotape rental store During the next few months, he had it operating smoothly, Pickens said In mid September, the man was arrested by Volusia County law enforcement and charged with a sex crime involving a pre-teenage girl. Shortly follow-ing his releasehe said that even though he was innocent, the stigma attached to the charge would make it impossible for him to operate a business in a small-town atmosphere. He then said that he felt like he should sell the business, even if he had to take a loss, and as landlord, he would give me first chance at it. In effect, the man had sold the same store three times. Pickens went before Unsolved Mysteries cameras Thursday to tell his part of the story. The crew filmed segments in the little video store as well as the Volusia County jail, using actors to re-stage parts of the story.25 years agoMay 12, 1939Frigidaire the Gift for MothersOne special day each year is set aside to honor the nations mothers, an occasion when various means are taken to make known the affection, which during the balance of the year is felt, but not always expressed. May 14 this year is going to be a memorable day for many mothers in Crescent City, says the local Frigidaire dealer, because starting on that date, they are going to enjoy the daily food keeping advantages of the new Cold Wall type electric refrigerator. This is the refrigerator with the exclusive feature of a compartment in which foods susceptible to drying keep their freshness and flavor for many days longer, without being covered. May 7, 1964Six Make Straight As to Head School Honor RollSix pupils made straight As at the Crescent City School to head the honor roll for the fifth six-week grading period, school officials announced this week. Earning straight As were: George Adkins and Hal Hilton, both of grade 7; Kenneth Ryals, Joan Schwantes, and Alice Thomas, all of grade 8; and Nancy Newbold, grade 12.50 years ago 10 years agoMay 5, 2004Gator Gone! A gator was recently removed from Lake Kathleen in Satsuma. Dan Ellis, local gator catcher nabbed this monster that was 11.6 feet in length and weighed over 500 lbs. Neighbors Bob Williams, Ted Grillo and Buddy Dearbourne assisted him. The gator was removed because it had been harassing dogs belonging to Steve and Nikki Cummings.

While the peak season for algae to proliferate is typically late summer to early fall, current conditions appear to have triggered early blooms. Algal blooms are caused by a com-bination of hot, overcast days, calm and excessive nutrients in the water, such as fertilizer runoff, storm-water runoff and wastewater.

A6 The County Church, also known as the Blue Jeans Church, is truly a different experience to say the least. As the ti tle suggests, you wear what you like. They also encourage you to be who you are, enjoy a fresh cup of coffee, classic rock covers of songs sprinkled with the word of the Lord, and donuts sprinkled with you know. Born in Hollywood, John Owens has always had a unique approach when it comes to reli gious practice. He often r eminisces on the experiences that led him to becoming a man of God. Me and my wife, Pau la, met back in 1970 at a wedding r eception, said John. One night we were lying in bed, and I asked, what would you do if God called me to preach? She called me crazy, he said with a laugh. Formerly known as The Lighthouse, the County Church began 11 years ago. They made me the pastor, and it wasnt long before it became The Blue Jeans Church. He and his wife were travel ing evangelists for many y ears. Their children, a son and a daughter, would often or occasion ally tag along. One of the best ex periences was at a tent r evival in Fort Pierce. A storm came along that people were calling the storm of the century. When it formed west of me, I grabbed a citrus branch from the ground and held it up. I hollered in the name of Jesus and the storm parted, circled around me, and then rejoined behind me. Since John was 11 years old, he has been a musician. Ive always been in bands, John said. The band Southern Fryd, the churchs band, assembled through faith. They started at tending church. I didnt have any idea they could play instruments. John is pr oud to claim his church as one of the most entertaining and easygoing services he has ever attended. We really try to have no cliques or creeds. Just forgiveness and love. Just real people. FREE book by doctor reveals what the drug companies don't want you to know!

It seems that in different times of the year we tend to eat differently. In the spring and summer we tend to gravitate toward lighter foods, with a highlight on salads and cooler dishes. Have you ever wondered why this is? Globally In todays global economy we are fortunate to have a large variety of fruits and vegetables available to us year round. What is not in season here may be some where else in the world and it is harvested and shipped, sometimes halfway around the world, to foreign mar kets in need. However is that the best thing for us? Most times the produce is harvested long before it reaches its peak and is therefore, lacking in nutrition, which it would have acquired if it had been allowed to mature and rip en naturally. Produce that has to be shipped is usually shipped in refrigerated containers. This dries out the food and also causes it to lose flavor. Many times it is stored for long peri ods in warehouses and then sprayed with chemicals to force the ripening process once it is needed in stores. Locally We have been told to buy local instead of globally, not only to benefit our health, but to benefit the economy as well. This is a good prac tice in general for anything, not just pr oduce, but that is a different article! The health benefits are great, as well as the fact that locally grown produce generally tastes better. If you have never been to a lo cal farmers market or family run farm to purchase food, you are truly missing out. Depending on what part of the country you live in, there are local fruits and vegetables that are indig enous to your area. If you ar e not sure where to go, http://www.localharvest. org/ is the place to visit. It has listings for every part of the country and can tell you what is in season. Go and take a look, you might just be surprised at how many places there are around you that you didnt even know where there!! It can even be a family outing and a learning opportunity for kids to see where their food really comes from. There is everything from tradition al gardens and farms to hydr oponic and aquaponic choices. You might even find a coop to join, where you can go and help grow the vegetables and fruit and en joy the harvest for yourself. Healthy Eating Pr oduce In Season just tastes better, along with the fact that it has a higher nutritional value than those that are not. Another bene fit of eating in season is that it will be much easier on the wallet! When produce is out of season it gets to be very expensive. Buying locally grown and harvested food, at a local market or farm is MUCH less expen sive than even its grocery stor e counterparts. Some times even food that is in season has been transport ed long distances to reach your super market and may not be as good. In Ayurveda, there are 3 eating seasons. Kapha (JanMay), Pitta (June-Sept) and Vatha or Vata (Oct-Dec). This eating cycle helps to keep our bodies in balance with natures rhythm and helps to avoid irritability, insomnia, and digestive im balance. Since we ar e at the end of Kapha and will soon be entering Pitta, it is import ant to know how to help our bodies to adjust to these changes since it is during these times that we are the most vulnerable to colds and flu. Ayurveda helps us to know how to keep our bod ies cooler in these warmer months by consuming the correct foods and spices in our diet. For example, even though it is very tempting to grab an ice cold glass of water or tea to cool yourself off on a hot summer day, the body actually will have to work harder to bring that cold fluid back to the bod ies actual temperature so it can be used, in tur n rais ing your body temperature mor e. If you drink room temperature water instead it doesnt have to work as hard to use it to rehydrate you, and you cool off faster. Some of the foods that are good for us at this time of the year are vegetables like cucumbers, spinach, celery and zucchini. Enjoy sweet fruits like apples and berries rather than sour or citrus fruits. Choose white, wild or basmati rice and go for quinoa, barley and bran. If you can digest dairy products, use ghee (clarified butter), cows milk, goats milk, unsalted butter and unsalted cheese. Ice cream is ok, on occasion. If you are prone to congestion or weight gain it is better to avoid it. Sour cream, but termilk, and salted dairy pr oducts are not recom mended, especially during the summer as they are more heating. If you eat animal prod ucts, do so moderately, and try to limit it to the white meat of chicken or tur key, freshwater fish or egg whites. Beans in general ar e astringent, and balancing for pitta. If you eat nuts, choose almonds. Use an abundance of cool ing spices like cilantro, dill, coriander and fennel. A void heating spices like cayenne, chili peppers and mustard seeds. Fresh ginger is ok, but do not use dried ginger. Sprinkling coconut on foods is also a cooling treat. Coffee is not recommend ed. Chamomile, dandelion, fennel, licorice and mint teas are best. If you drink alcohol, choose beer and dry white wine, in modera tion. Avoid hard liquor and r ed wine which are heating. Stay Well Ayurveda recommends eating local and seasonal foods as nature provides the right foods for the season. I hope this encourages all of you to get out and look for locally grown (or as close as possible) produce in season. Its a great way to learn about your area, make new memories and learn more about foods you have never tried or know little about. Until next time, stay healthy.If youve kept up with the news this past week, then youre familiar with all the storms we have had across the U.S. Flooding and tornados wreaking havoc and destroying communities. People coming out in dr oves and new heroes emerging for their 15 minutes of fame, but what about the heroes we never see, the people who do this, day in and day out, never asking anyone for help; the ones who give help and expect nothing in return? I would like to take you on an imagi nary trip through a couple of scenarios that could very well happen to any one of us at any given time, maybe even today. Its 3 a.m.; youre sleeping soundly when you hear, Bam, bam, bam! Y oure awakened by the sound of a neighbor beating on your door and yelling, Your house is on fire! You quickly scramble to your feet; the air is filled with smoke. Youre familiar with your house and you stumble through the hallways trying to wake your children or spouse. Your heart is pounding so loud that it overruns the sound of the wood cracking as the fire ignites it. You and those precious to you stumble out the front door and onto the front lawn. Everyone is safe. Neighbors gather as you watch the flames grow bigger through your front windows, but instead of hearing sirens coming in the distance, you hear only the crackling of burning wood, the sound of glass breaking from the heat, and the garage exploding with your car, lawnmower and a 5-gallon can of gas inside, and still no sirens. Finally, off in the distance, you hear the fire truck, but theyre late. Your home with all your belongings is gone. Next: Its around 8 p.m. and youre heading home with your family. Youve been out for a few hours and everyone is happy, and why not youve just had one of the best days of your life with the family. In less than a minute, a drunk driver crosses into your lane, hitting you head-on at 60 mph. The sound of glass and metal smashing is all you hear. Your vehicle finally flips back into the upright posi tion, you look around, only to find everyone in the car is un conscious and youre trapped behind the wheel; helpless to do anything at all while your family is in dire need of medical attention. An officer shows up minutes later but is unable to free you. The officer assures you that help is on the way but he cant do anything until EMS and first responders show up. You sit there for what seems like an hour and finally a unit from another district shows up. Now you may say, That could never happen to me. I can assure that it can, because those are just two of the calls I experienced as I followed the first responders with my emergency scanner in hand. In my examples, the victims waited what seemed like an eter nity for assistance to arrive. Truth be told, the first responders and EMS were on the scene in only a matter of minutes. The people in the house fire lost very little and the people in the accident all recovered. So, why would I even bring up these scenarios, you ask? Our fire department and first responders will always be there on time. Right? W rong! Last week, I introduced you to a group of men and women from the Georgetown Fruitland Fire Department. I told you how they are in dire need of items to help make their lives easier as they respond to accidents, brush fires, structure fires, calls to help the elderly and, yes, they even remove a cat from a tree every now and then. I also filled you in on their incentive pay of $4 a call to help offset their gas, and about how they have to buy their own shovels, bug repellent, flashlights, and other items. However, what I didnt tell you is how bad this fire station is hurting for funds. This past Sunday, I had the privilege of spending the day with most of the Georgetown Fruitland Volunteer Fire De partment. During our conver sations, I learned a lot about what it takes to run a fir e station. I saw trucks that are old and outdated but are still in use. I learned that they are given around $18,000 from the county to maintain their department. I also learned that they average around 400 calls per year, which means that their budget for all they do is about $45 per call. I also learned that just one pump costs around $6,000 to replace, and one other thing I lear ned is that they only have a few thousand in the bank, and the cost to outfit one firefighter is around $6,000. Now, let me give you a real scenario. If one major thing goes wrong, such as a pump needing to be replaced, a truck blowing a motor, or replacing a set of tires on one of their trucks, the people of Georgetown and Fruitland will not hear the sound of their trucks coming to their aid. Not to mention the fires and accidents these volun teer firefighters assist with in Cr escent City and Welaka. This is the cold hard reality of the situation they are in. After spending the day with these fire fighters, I realized that they are not in it to make money or a name for themselves. I also realized that these men and women truly love what they do and pr ob ably have the biggest hearts of anyone in our communi ty. Most of these firefighters have gr own up around here, so when they go on a call, chances are they know the person and/or are related to them. How they put up with the stress of their job is way beyond me. During our conversation, I listened to one firefighter as he told me a story of his dying father lying in his arms and how no matter what he did, he couldnt save his fathers life. One of the stories that touched me most was when one of the firefighters told me the story of a brush fire. Because of space, I just want to give you the edited version of this call. During a fire, animals will flock out of the brush as it burns; deer, hogs, birds, and yes, even snakes. On this par ticular brush fire, one of the fir emen noticed a water snake heading for a nearby pond. The fireman wanted to save the snake but the fire was just too quick, and within seconds, the snake fell to its demise in the flames. As the fireman was telling me the story, I could see the sympa thy and pain in his eyes and all because he couldnt save a snake that most of us would have chopped the head off of with a garden shovel. If a man like this has that much compassion for a snake, just imagine what kind of compas sion he has for his friends, neighbors and community brother and sisters when he is on a call. Moreover, he wasnt the only one. I found that all these firefighters, first responders and EMS people all felt the same way. The point of this article is that we need to do some thing fast before we lose the Geor getown Fruitland Volunteer Fire Station. Most of the Fir e Stations are volunteers but they have County and city funds to help them out. However, since Georgetown and Fruitland are not cities, they are missing that funding. In Putnam County, we have around 77,000 residents, and if every resident would give just 50 cents we could bail them out, but we all know that is not going to happen. Over the last week, I have been able to contact some great businesses who have donated items to the George town Fruitland Volunteer Fire Department and I would like to thank them on behalf of the Fir efighters, EMS and First Responders. Thank you, Larry and Winn-Dixie from Cres cent City for the collection of water Gatorade, and snacks. Thank you, Rob, John H. and Lowes in Palatka for donat ing new shovels, hammers, helmet lights, axes, scr ew gun and tools. Thank you, Lisa, staff and CenterState Bank of Crescent for taking up donations at your branch. Thank you, Hills Hardware in Pomona Park for the helmet lights and bug repellent. Thank you, Matt and LuAnne at the Produce Stand in Satsuma for donating the r ope for your boat and truck. Last, but not least, thank you, to all of you who are helping save one of our Fire De partments. Volunteer Firemen and women make up 78% of all Firemen in the U.S and they all need our help. Over the next few weeks, they need to raise around $15,000 in order to keep just this one fire station open, and I realize these are hard times. Im not asking for you to give a million dollars, but only to do what you can; a bottle of water, a pack of peanut butter crackers, a bandana, batteries or even a dollar will make a world of difference. If you have a business and you can collect items for our firefighters, or if you would like a list of items you can donate, then please email me at travis.pccj@gmail.com or call our of fice at 386-698-1644. Donations can be purchased at Winn-Dixie or dropped off at CenterState Bank both lo cated in Crescent City. In closing, I want to thank you for r eading this article, and to ask that you please help us with this cause. In the beginning, I listed a couple of scenarios that could happen to anyone of us, and while most of us wont need their services today, chances are one day we will. I want to thank all the Volunteer Fire fighters, both men and wom en, in Putnam County for all they do. Hollywood may have its fictional her oes on the big screen, but we have the real heroes in our county. To all the Volunteer Firefighters in our county, I, along with all the residents, want to say, Thank you, and we love you for caring about us. Be Safe. May 7, 2014 COURIER JOURNAL Section B The rst item Im going to comment on is the Ja mie Winston crab leg caper and what I told a group of after-service church friends yesterday. It just suddenly popped into my head to make an announcement that the Red Lobster restaurant in Daytona Beach was running a Sunday evening speciala shellsh lovers meal called the Jameis Winston Crab Leg special, a steal at $32.00. It drew some chuckles, but I had some regrets that maybe this was not the place or time to bring up the matter. Anyway, it was over and done with and I could hardly retract what had been said. I soon thereafter regretted not playing the fair game, and announce that the University of Floridas erstwhile all conference tight end, Aaron Hernandez, who is incar cerated in a Massachusetts prison awaiting trial for not just one gangster-like murder, but for two other driveby killings six months or so prior to that, has just been charged for some kind of trouble-making with fellow inmates in prison. This guy is a legitimate thug, and thank goodness these alleged acts were not done while attending the U of F. However, the fact is, he did have problems in school, one of which was punching out a bouncer in a local bar, which received minor publicity. Coach at that time, Urban Meyer, was able to control Hernandez after that incident; just how, we dont know, but it could be that he kept him in ankle shackles at night. Who knows? I just hope that the talented Win ston keeps on the straight and narrow from this point on, because this crableg thing is not going away soon, especially when he plays in places like Gainesville and Miami, much less in Boston and in other venues. I note that tonight he was reinstated to the baseball club af ter serving 30 hours of community service, and it goes on and on The results of the NBA playoffs have been surprising, not because they produced upsets, but because the underdogs (8 seeds) took the top seeded teams to full seven seven games before losing in that seventh game. The Indiana Pacers vs. the Hawks (one of my favorites) played even Steven for the rst six games with Atlan ta, leading games to two and having a chance to close it out at home. They just couldnt pull it off, and then sort of collapsed in the nal game at Indianapolis. The press and others have been all over the Pacers for their mediocre play for the last month or so, especially the performance of the teams star, Paul George. But, as is often the case he came through in game seven big time and now Indy moves on to play Im not sure who (could be the Wizards), beginning next week. I do know that Miami, which swept Charlotte in four games, will be playing the Brooklyn Nets which knocked off Toron to in seven games. It is weird to call them the Brooklyn Nets after so many years as the New Jersey Nets, but apparently the change has worked. Brooklyn was able to rob Paul Pierce and a couple of his teammates from the Boston Celtics (a rather nauseating situation for me) and it resulted in a semi nal spot their rst year in Flatbush. You probably read that the nets swept Miami during the season and that meant two in Miami, so Labron and DeWayne have big time trouble han dling Pierce and company. I watched a portion of one of those games and it was clear that Brooklyn pushed the Heat all over the place. Im going to stick with my prior prediction that San Antonio, which beat Dallas in seven, is the dark horse to win it all, but that the 0klahoma City Thunder, will be the eventual winners. The troubled LA Clippers are tough, especially when Blake Grifn is on, and hes on more than off these days. Right now, Kevin Durant is playing the best ball of his career for the Thunder and I see little reason to think he wont continue to play at a top level. LaBron and Kevin could just meet in that nal series, but dont count out San Antonio. Next time well see how things went in the NBA play offs and Ill start commenting on MLB, particularly with the Braves and Red Sox, which, along with Tam pa, Miami and the Texas Rangers should produce this years team to beat. Dont worry, the Yankees are odds on favorites along with Detroit and will no doubt give me headaches all summer.
