On Friday, May 23, Deputies and Detectives with the Putnam Coun ty Sheriffs Office Major Cr imes Unit responded to the Kangaroo conve nience store located at 1140 County Road 309 in Fruitland in reference to an armed robbery at tempt. U pon arrival deputies and detectives found the robbery suspect, 43-yearold Jeffrey Charles Lohman, deceased from a stab wound. After interviewing wit nesses it was determined that Lohman enter ed the store and demanded money while brandishing a box cutter. A bystand er, 37-year-old Anthony Shebester came to the aid of the store clerk arm ing himself with a pocket knife and in the ensu ing struggle Lohman was stabbed and expir ed on the scene. Lohman was a res ident of Fruitland with a criminal past and had an outstanding warrant for failure to appear on a warrant for organized skeem to defraud at the time of the incident. Neither Shebaster or the store clerk were in jured during the incident. The stor e clerks identity was not know at the time of this publication.The Putnam Coun ty Sheriffs Office has r eceived reports of a telephone scam that in volves people identifying themselves as Detec tives with the Sheriffs Of fice. The scammers are using a telephone ser vice that allows them to choose how their phone call is identified by caller ID. Consequently, call er ID will show the scam call is coming fr om the Sheriffs Office. The individual will telephone the victim, tell them they missed jury duty and a war rant has been issued for their arr est. The victim is then given the option of going to jail or going to Walgreens, CVS, or Winn Dixie and getting a green dot card for a specified amount and paying the money over the telephone using the green card. Please be aware this is a scam! The Sheriffs Office will not contact anyone in this manner concerning a warrant or accept payment over the telephone to avoid arrest. If you are contacted by anyone demanding money who says they are a law enforcement officer, please do not pay them anything and report it to the law en forcement agency in your local jurisdiction.

Nonymous Juliette Laurie Editor/Publisher In my lifetime, I have seen the worst Presidents run our county; Richard Nixon, Jim my Carter, Bush and now this liar we have in office. I know we dont agree on much but I hope you have my back on this one. This week we will celebrate Memorial Day, but r eally, what do our veterans have to celebrate? The past few weeks we have found out that our V.A. has a secret waiting list; both men and women have been put on the back burners and have lost their lives because of a corrupt system. On May 12, 2008, I watched a young senator, who was running for the presidency, announce how our V.A. was in dire need of fixing and how he was going to get to the bottom of it, This is not acceptable, he said. On August 17, 2009, Obamas words were I promise to fix the problems with the V.A.! You have my word. That shouldnt surprise anyone because as a senator Obama missed 19 out of the 37 meetings to fix the V.A. I love this part, when Jay the Kiss Butt right arm of Obama was asked if the President knew anything about the problem in Phoenix, Jay Carney said, The President learned about it from the newspaper! Hello, are you kidding me? Oh and the best part of all, he puts the head of the V.A., Eric Shinseki U.S retired Army Gen eral, in charge of investigating himself and his staff. Holy bat crap, Batman we have a pr oblem. Yes, I respect Shinseki for his service to this country but the fact that Obama nominated him to his position on December 8, 2008 and he was unanimously confirmed by the Senate on January 20, 2009 makes me think something is rotten in Denmark. Get mad if you want but the problem wasnt just in Phoenix it was in 26 other states as well. Let me ask you this question. We have 85 million veterans in the V.A. system which is a Government Health Care program, yet many Veterans hate the care they receive from the V.A. Now, if the Government cant take care of 85 million Veterans, what makes you think they can take care of 333 million Americans with Obama Care? With all the scandals and corruption in our Government, we are going to have to come up with another alphabet because they have used up most of the letters. Never in history have so many politicians been so corrupt, never have there been so many scandals, the AP, ATF IRS, DOJ, NSA, Benghazi, Fast and Furious and now the V.A., and the sad thing is, not one person has been put in jail or shot for treason. Obama said, The buck stops here, Yet he never seems to know anything unless he reads it in the newspaper. Mr. President, since the information you receive is from reading the newspaper please allow me to inform you that your whole government is corrupt. We are not fooled by your lies. We have overlooked the things you have done since you took office but this is unacceptable. You have allowed the Veterans who have given up life and limb to go without medical care, you have cut their benefits, you have shut down their monu ments, and all while you and your wife and kids go on expensive vacations. You have made a mockery out of the men and women who have fought for the very fr eedom you take away from them. You, Mr. President, should be tried for treason and incarcerated for life. You send billions to third world countries who would blow us up in a heartbeat and you support groups that think its okay to beat, rape and treat women like dirt. You give all these lowlifes money but you short change our veterans. Mr. President, you are one of the worst things that has ever happened to this country. Shame on you for the way you treat our men and women of our armed forces. You have a pen and phone to call the American people, try calling our Veterans with missing arms, legs and debilitating injuries no one can see. Take your pen out right now and make it so that our Veterans can go see a private doctor. Yes, you have that power and for Gods sake, shut your lying mouth. You are supposed to be our leader, act like one or take that pen and phone and put them where the sun doesnt shine. Everyone has an opinion, and this is mine. You might not agree with it, but, Thats How I see It. Buckle Up America! Click It or Ticket is going on now through Friday, June 6. Click It or Ticket is a campaign that is aimed at increasing seatbelt use and awareness by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Before 1980, volunteer seatbelt usage was at about 11%. Despite efforts at the local and state levels to increase awareness by the end of 1984 usage had only increased to 15%. In 1984, New York became the first state to enact a mandatory seatbelt use law, and by 1990 thirty-seven other states had followed their lead. Figures released in 2003 found that 83% of the 800 people polled said they wore their seatbelts. Todays campaigns are aimed at Younger drivers and studies have shown that drivers are still not buckling up at night the way they should. More motorists who are killed in crashes at night are unrestrained at the time of the crashes (61 percent) than those killed in crashes during the day (43 percent). NHTSA data show that the use of seat belts in passenger vehicles saved an estimated 12,174 lives in 2012. Seat belts have saved nearly 63,000 lives during the 5-year-period from 2008 to 2012. So, day or night, Click It or Ticket Saturday, May 31 is World No Tobacco Day This is a day that has been recognized an nually since 1987, sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO), to raise awareness o f the affects smoking has on those who do it and also on those around them. The tobacco diseases and the deaths it causes are epidemic. Statistics show that nearly 6 million people die annually from tobacco related illnesses, and 600,000 of those are non-users who die from the effects of second hand smoke. This years campaign is focusing on the taxes assessed on tobacco products. Research has shown that a tax increase that will raise the price of tobacco products by 10% will de crease tobacco use in lower and middle income populations and help prevent young people f rom ever starting to smoke. They also propose a 50% increase in excise tax, which would bring in an additional 1.4 billion in additional funds in 22 low-income countries. If allocated to health, government health spending in these countries could increase by up to 50%. Here are some facts about cigarette smoke and smoking: a re known to be harmful and more than 50 are known to cause cancer. including coronary heart disease and lung cancer. You CAN quitThere is help!!! http://www.tobaccofreeflorida.com/Contents-12/How-toQuit-Tool. Liar of the Century Thank You to the CommunityProposed Road for Guess What?Dear Editor: To all the Folks whom live on the Proposed Road for guess what? --a Bike Path. There is much happening in our little town and this is to update you on what it is. Most of you should have received a letter from the City informing you of the news. Of course, I wasnt one of the lucky ones so we didnt get any notice of plans or a meeting date in May. Some people will love the plan and some like me are going to be badly hurt. It is just not a good route for it. Prospect Street is narrow and heavily traveled by speeding buses, large trucks, and some very fast cars. Also, I dont like losing around 10 to 15 feet of front yard since my yard is only 25 feet from the road. This means, we will not be able to park our cars anywhere. Not in our drive way since it will be gone and of course not in the street as there will be no street parking. But the very worst thing is the removal of our 100 years old trees that we have trimmed, nurtured, and treated for insects to the sum of one thousand dollars. I dont mind spending the money because they are beautiful and give us lots of shade. This part seems strange as the city and the tree committee would never let anybody touch the trees or give permits to trim for around the first 2 years we lived here. Now it is quite okay to cut down all our 100 year old trees. I hate this as the trees add so much beauty to our town. I hope some of you will attend the next meeting at City Hall at 7:00 p.m. on June 12, 2014. Perhaps we will find out whats happening. Sincerely Submitted Nancy C. Miller Crescent City Dear Editor: During our Bar-B-Que this weekend, I asked Travis if I could add a personal comment or two, so here goes. We mainly want to thank a bunch of people and businesses for their support and donations. I want to start by thanking Winn Dixie in Crescent City, all of their employees and especially Larry the store manager and Ahmed the assistant store manager for their outstanding support and hard work helping us raise money, and get the water that we need to keep us hydrated on those long hot days fighting fir es.

Travis Roberts who came to us wanting to help us raise money and get some tools that we needed. Travis is a class act, and great leader, we couldnt have done this with out his leadership and hard work. Thank you Travis, also thank you Jordan and Kaley for your help as well. Thank you to our new member Tom Johnston who just joined our department and who was a major part of the team both Friday and Saturday. To the members of Station #9 who have worked so hard over the past month and especial ly those who gave up part of their holiday weekend to make this fund raiser a success, Larry Pope, Matt Pope, Diane Pope, and Hal Moon. Thank Y ou all for your hard work. To Geo who let us borrow his smoker, and to Catina Flynn with Putnam County who always helps us out, Thank You.

Additionally, new research suggests that play in nature inuences creativity, problem-solving, emotional and intellectual development, and may protect against nearsightedness and vitamin D deciency. Outdoor play is also associated with a variety of other psychosocial benets. These ndings are one of the reasons that the Florida Department of Health in Putnam County announced that the launch of the Nature Play Prescription Pilot Project. The goal of the project is to increase healthy activity for children and their families through access to Floridas remarkable state parks. The prescription will grant a onetime, free entry into a state park for a child and their family or friends. Nature Play Prescription is a great opportunity for children and families to get outside and enjoy Floridas outstanding state parks, said State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong. This groundbreaking collaboration is another example of how state agencies are working together for Floridas families. With the Ravine Gardens, Dunns Creek and the Cross Florida Greenway all Putnam county residents are in close proximity of a state park, said Mary Garcia, Administrator of the Florida Department of Health in Putnam County, If you live in the area, theres an opportunity to enjoy outdoor recreation at the State Parks and Putnam Countys Blueways and Trails. Children will enjoy hiking, watching wildlife or playing on the playground. Floridas 171 state parks and trails inspire residents and visitors with recreation opportunities and scenic beauty that help strengthen families, educate children, expand local economies and foster community pride. With 161 parks, 10 state trails, nearly 800,000 acres, 100 miles of beaches and more than 1,500 miles of multi-use trails, Floridas families are invited to visit soon and often to enjoy Floridas natural treasures. The Department of Health in Putnam County will participate in the pilot program by providing Dr. Eric Jump, Kids Care Pediatrics and Jane Zentko, Registered Dietician at DOH-Putnam prescriptions to hand out to patients. The pilot project includes 10,000 prescription passes, which may be used at Flor ida state parks from April through June. Then in October the nal data will be collected and evaluation. The evaluation will help determine just how many of the passes were prescribed, how many were redeemed and which type of health professional prescribed them most often? The determination of efcacy: did park administrators and healthcare professionals nd the program worthwhile and would they like to see it continue? The program was launched during Childrens Week, April 6-11 in Tallahassee, an annual week dedicated to promoting the health, safety and well being of children and families in Florida. The Department of Health par ticipated in the week by highlighting the many services offered to children and their families from pre-natal through young adulthood. The Nature Play Prescription Pilot Project offers an opportunity for children and families to increase physical activity and represents the most recent effort of Healthiest Weight Florida.

The following article appeared in the April 1, 1965 issue of the Courier-Journal. While much agricultural land has been lost to development in recent years, agriculture, and its various spin-off industries, continues to play a strong role in the economy. F. F. A. Ofcers Are Speakers at Rotary Five members of the local chapter of the Future Farmers of America presented a program before the Rotary Club this Wednesday noon, with Reid Wentz in charge. They chose for their subject: Why We Study Agriculture and each spoke briey on a phase of the industry. Taking part in the program were Jerry Tudor, president of FFA at Crescent City High School; Lee Mor ris, reporter; John Ross, secretary; Tommy Brenner, treasur er; and Roy Pringle. The boys stressed the fact that agriculture is more than farming, and is the largest industry in the country, employing more men than any other in raising products, transporting them and processing them. They pointed out that 58 per cent of our land area is devoted to agriculture, the industry which is basic to our economy. With a great diversity of activities in this huge eld there are countless opportunities for employment and achievement.

They live in a small, struggling community, and sometimes barely manage to get by. As he considers their predicament, Nehemiah feels compelled to help the community re-vitalize and re-build. He begins the process by taking a slow walk around town at night. What a brave thing to do! We all know there are a lot of unseen things that go bump in the night and we sure dont want to be there for that. To his credit, Nehemiah travels down the west side, across the south side, and up the east side, looking at the city from every point of view. After his midnight trip, he shares an idea: Lets make this city like new! The people responded with enthusiasm and began working for the common good. (Nehemiah 2:11-20) As a down to earth Christian, with a special love for Putnam people, two ideas from this story stand out: considering every point of view and working for the common good. I dont know about you, but these are ideas Id love to engage. Granted, this is slow tedious work; but its important work. Like Nehemiah, we can re-view and re-new, re-imagine and re-mind, and re-build. In her book Amen, Gretta Vosper suggests people of faith also re-focus. No more pointing a fearful nger toward God in the sky. Instead, its time we look at one another and focus on what we all have in common: life, right here, right now, on this earth. She also suggests we renew our commitment to the greatest commandment and tend to each others needs with love. In Original Blessing, Matthew Fox re-minds: if we were to put the energies of people, knowledge, talent, and capital to work to feed, educate, heal and house we would have no shortage of jobs. However, in order to accomplish such great things, well have to do a lot of letting go. Letting go of old ideas, to create space for re-imaging the future; letting go of assumptions, stereotypes and prejudices, to re-new meaning-filled relationships; letting go of how weve always done it to re-connect with a spirit of creativity capable of re-building and re-birth. So what do you say? Are you willing to take a stroll around our community and consider life from other points of view? Are you willing to widen the welcome and seek the common good? If so, I invite you to explore with me, an innovative internet resource offered by Global Ministries titled R.E.A.D.Y. It is a useful guide for a slow walk around town. It begins with 2 videos: Silent Beats and The Danger of a Single Story which shine light on un-seen things which we fear will go bump in the night and offers a wider view. (Oh yeah, did I mention its free?) Lets do it! Lets make our community like new!

This past week Tr ish Sauls and her students received an award for the AABB conference. Every year Sauls puts a few of her students in charge of getting blood donations from the high school students. Not only did they have the most students from a small high school donated but they also had the most amount donated and not just in Putnam County but in the whole state. Sauls received a bouquet of flowers from the Crescent City Flower Shop, and a trophy from Life South. This is the twelfth time that Sauls class has received an award for most blood donated, dating back to 2002, and the 4th time they have received the State Wide Trophy in both categories Congratulations to Sauls and her class for this great accomplishment, you young people have saved thousands of lives according to the Life South People. There is no doubt in my mind that you will take the trophy again next year. I would like to congratulate a young man whom I had the privilege of working with a couple of years ago on the football team. His name is Bradley Baker. Baker didnt play football this past year but stuck with his passion for baseball, another one of my favorite sports and it paid off for him this year. Baker a senior at Crescent City High School received an award this past week from Putnam County for Player of the Year, in baseball. This is the first time in the past 10 years that one of our students has received this award. Baker will graduate from Crescent City High on Friday, June 6 and plans on attending St. Johns River State College for two years. Baker already has 16 college credits and after St. Johns he wants to attend Charleston Southern in South Carolina but his dream would be to play baseball for Mile Fox at University of North Carolina, so if anyone out there has any connection at U.N.C please drop his name. Congratulations Bradley Baker on your award and I hope to see you playing for the Braves when you finish college. Also I want to congratulate Mr. and Mrs. Baker for raising such an outstanding young man, I know you both are very proud of him. A6 The Raiders took the field against P.K. Young, from Ocala at 7 p.m. and would end the game with a score of 30 to 13, Raiders. The Raiders triumphed over the team from Ocala. The defeat wasnt from lack of trying; the young men from P.K. Young played their hearts out. While standing on the side lines, I was approached by two young men that I had written about in an article last year, and they may very well be the two most import ant members of the Raiders squad. No, neither of them were the quarterback or a defensive end, they were Jeremiah Cook and Hunter Wolf, the two ball boys for the Crescent City Junior Senior High Football team. So as I was stand ing there trying to get t he perfect shot for this article, you know where one of our play ers is running for a touchdown or taking someone to the turf when Jeremiah said, Thank you for mak ing me, and Hunter famous last year . My reply was, I did? Hows did I do that? He said, Coach, when I got to school, my teacher said, We have a celebrity among us, then she held up the picture of me and Hunter that you put in the paper. Then she read it out loud to the whole class; it was so cool because all the kids wanted to talk to me about it. And Hunter replied, Yea, my mom cut it out of the paper. Jer emiah broke in and said, Y ea and people were buying us hot dogs and drinks at the next game. I cant wait till I get big so I can be out there play ing. Hunter replied, Me too! While standing there listening to Hunter and Jeremi ah talk about how they would run down the field and make a touchdown and which guy they would block, I realized that I had the perfect picture for this article stand ing right there on the side lines. Playing and winning games on the field are not all that the Raiders are to the community; they are also the in spiration for kids like Jer emiah and Hunt er. I hope the Raider football players r eal ize, that both on and of f the field, they not only represent us but influence the younger crowd. In closing, I want to congratulate the Raid ers on their win over P .K. Young and I look forward to covering the upcoming season. I also want to men tion one other thing her e. As Jeremiah was talking to me he said, Coach, Im going to be a famous actor one day. Really, I said, So when can I expect to see you on stage? He replied, Oh Im going to be in a play this Friday at George C. Miller Intermediate School. Im going to be in the play Alad din. Im the Sultan of Shumak. Can you ask the people who read the newspaper to come watch me? Well, I dont know about you but Ill be there to watch Jere miah make his open ing debut. I dont have the time of the show but I know its Friday during school hours. If you would like to go see Jeremiah, you can call the school at 386698-1360.

The value of a man is not measured by what he does for himself to make his life easier, but mea sured by what he does for others to make their lives easier. When I think of those words written by Eric Thomas it brings to mind one person in par ticular. It was in October of last year that I walked into the Winn-Dixie store, in Crescent City, and asked to speak to the manag er. I had been to a few other gr ocery stores that day trying to get a new program started for the Putnam County Courier Journal Facebook page but had been told to fill out more paper work than I did when purchasing a new car or house and, to be honest, I expected to hear the same thing from this manager. Being raised in the 1960s, I knew what a real community was about and while the Vietnam war was raging and race was a big issue, the com munity I was born in was a tight knit one wher e people helped each oth er out even before they needed it. My idea was simple; start doing contests where businesses could give back to the community that supports them, then to have these businesses and people get together and help out some youth programs that are in dire need of help. Sounds easy enough, right? Hardly, it was the same old: You will need to send your information with a letter, on your business letter head, to our corporate of fice along with your Fed eral tax information, a list of what items you would like donated and the UPC codes. Also, include your first born and a copy of your will. Ok, Im joking about my first born and will but I was prepared to fill out a mountain of paper work. As I stood in Winn-Dix ie, at the customer ser vice counter, I heard a voice fr om behind me say, Hi, Im Larry, the store manager. How can I help you? I gave Larry the spill on what I wanted to do, and I was all prepared to hear the same thing from his mouth that had been repeated to me over and over that day by the other businesses I had visited. Instead I got, Hey, that sounds good to me. What do I need to do to help out? That was in October, by Christmas, Larry was doing fund raisers for the football team, girls cheer leading squad, the high school band and also giv ing me prizes for contests to do on the newspapers Facebook page. That only begins to mention a few of the many times Larry has been generous enough to help. There hasnt been one time when Ive gone to Larry asking for his help that he declined, in fact, he always goes above and beyond what is asked of him, and the great thing is Ive never had to fill out a single form or beg. Three weeks ago, I at tended a cook out that was sponsor ed by the Ro tary Club of Crescent City and Larry fr om Winn-Dix ie. Last weekend, Larry fr om Winn-Dixie, Mrs. Bonnie from The Putnam Family Fitness Center, with some volunteers and myself, from the Courier Journal, had a rib cook out, in front of Winn-Dix ie, to help raise funds for the South Putnam youth soccer league. The cookout was a suc cess and Larry said, Why dont we do this again next weekend to help raise money for the Georgetown Fruitland Volunteer Fire Department. I hear they are at the point of closing their doors. In two days we were able to raise over $1,700. Now, while this may sound like a lot of money to most people, it is a far cry from the amount they really need. All day Fri day and Saturday, these men and women fr om the Georgetown Fruitland Volunteer fire department along with workers from Winn-Dixie, worked tire lessly to sell ribs and collect donations for their cause. Now you might think that this would have been good enough but this morning I received a call from Larry and he said, Hey Travis, I decided to extend the cookout for two more days so we can make some more money for the firefighters. My comment was, I have to finish up my articles for the paper, but give me a few hours and I will get in touch with a few of the firefighters and we will head over there. Larry re plied, No need. You guys worked har d enough, take the day off we have this covered. Ive got two of my people on it. The picture above this article is one that I took this past Saturday be tween cooking ribs and giving away contests at Winn-Dixie. I want you guys to look at the faces of these young people and see how happy these kids are. Now look right in the middle of the picture and you will see Larry with a smile as big as theirs. These are the kids that he has been helping as well as another 100 plus, who were not there this past Saturday. I know that there are a lot of people in Putnam County who go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to giving back to our community and I would never want to sell any of you short but today I felt the need to recognize Larry Court, the manager from Winn-Dixie in Crescent City. I can think of a 100 awards that could be presented to Larry like Community Leader or Man of the Year but I really dont think it could ever express the gratitude of the people whose lives have been touched and made better by his involvement. When I asked Larry if there was anything I could do for him like sending him and his wife to dinner, bowling or maybe a weekend get away, his comment was, Just tell people to shop at Winn-Dixie in Crescent City. You might not know that Larry travels from Palm Coast every day to manage our Winn-Dixie. The value of a man is not measured by what he does for himself to make his life easier, but mea sured by what he does for others to make their lives easier . Larry Court, you are truly a testament of what a real man is and I take my hat off to you for all you do for this community. From me and the residents of Putnam County, we thank you so much for all you do. In closing, I would thank everyone that have been involved with the fund raisers for our youth, it is people like yourselves and Larry that help give our kids something to look forward to in life. As my grandfather use to say, A kid with nothing to do or no purpose, will get in trouble but, if you give that kid a purpose and something to do, you will have a great kid. I hope that more people in our community will make the time to help out with our youth. Last but not least, I hope that each and every one of you will stop by the Winn-Dixie in Crescent City, or send an email or letter and thank Larry Court for all he is doing because instead of see ing a 100 kids smiling at a soccer field, you could be looking at 100 mug shots in the paper. Again, Thank you for all you do for our community Larry Court and Winn-Dixie.Youre at a summer picnic and someone pulls a watermelon out of a cooler full of ice and cuts it into slices. You grab a piece and bite into its red, ripe flesh just knowing that its going to be ice cold and sweet as sugar! Sure enough as you take that first bite and the juice runs down your chin onto your arms, you savor the taste that is summer, theres just nothing better than that!! The watermelon (Ci trullus vulgaris) dates back to pr ehistoric times where it was orig inally believed to have been found gr owing wild in Africa. It was known to have been grown by the ancient Egyptians as it is depicted in pic tures that have survived until today. W atermelon seeds were even said to have been found in the tomb of the famous King Tut. They have long been and remain until today an import ant water source for people in desert climes. They were introduced to the Americas in the 1600s by European slave traders and it was at that time they were also given their name. Until then they were known as citrul, a French-Italian word, or pasteque a French-Arab combination. There are over 1200 varieties of watermel ons, the ones we are accustom to seeing in the grocery store usu ally range from round to oblong with r ed meat and are either seed less or seeded. There ar e also orange white and yellow and they can range in size from one to 200 pounds each. Forty Four US states produce watermelons and the season runs from May to September. Other times of the year watermelon is imported from Mexico and Cen tral America where it has a longer season. Watermelon is a mem ber of the Cucurbita ceae family, the water melon is related to the cantaloupe, squash, pumpkin, cucumber, and gourd that grow on vines on the ground. It has a very high water content (thus its name) of 90% or more. A one cup serving contains only 46 calories mak ing it a good option for those who ar e watching their waistline. It has both antioxi dant and anti-inflam matory properties, with one of the most promi nent nutrients being ly copene. L ycopene is a wellknown antioxidant, with the ability to neu tralize free radical mole cules, found in the flesh of fruits and vegetables with pink and red flesh such as tomatoes, gua va and pink grapefruit. It is also able to stop many inflammatory processes in the body as well. It increases as the ripeness of the watermelon increases so for the most opti mal amount of lycopene available make sur e you are eating the ripest fruit available. It has shown promising ben efit in its role in the pr evention of prostate cancer, cardiovascular disease and breast dis ease. It is also showing benefit to lung cancer Another significant antioxidant that we find is beta-carotene. It also increases with the ripe ness of the watermelon. Beta-car otene has positive association with decreased risk of cardio-vascular disease as well as oral cavity, and lung cancers. Be ta-carotene is also a pr ecursor of vitamin A. We need vitamin A for healthy skin and mucus membranes, our im mune system, and good eye health and vision. Another nutrient that researchers are finding plentiful in watermel on is L-citrulline which is then converted into arginine. It was found in a study published in the American Journal of Hypertension that the L-citrulline in watermel on extract given over a 6 week period could help to reverse the inabili ty of the blood vessels to dilate and function properly is known as endothelial dysfunction. If watermelon can re verse this process, it would certainly pr ovide a breakthrough alter native to many of the drugs used for primary prevention of hyperten sion and cardiovascu lar disease. It is a very pr omising direction for science to go in. Watermelon is a great boost to beauty as well. It contains just the right amounts of Vitamins A, B6 and C to do wonders for your skin and with all that water it is per fect to keep you well hydrated all summer long! The L ycopene and be ta-carotene mentioned earlier will also help to decrease the signs of aging. For glowing, softer skin: Mix 1 teaspoon watermelon juice, 1 tea spoon plain Greek Yo gurt. The lactic acid and enzymes in the yogurt will help gently exfoliate and purify while the wa termelon hydrates and heals. Apply the mask to your face and neck for 10 minutes before rinsing off. We all love to eat wa termelon just the way it is nice and cold in slices or cut up in chunks, but here are a couple of recipes to give you some idea of a couple of ways to include it in your dai ly routine. The one for vitamin water makes a good replacement for soda on a hot summer day. WatermelonCucumber SaladINGREDIENTS: 6 cups cubed seed ed watermelon. 4 cups cubed En glish cucumber (also known as a seedless cucum ber) If you cant find these, use r egular and scrape out the seeds 2 tbls. Fresh mint chopped. 1 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon white sugar (optional) 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar 1-2 oz. crumbled feta of goat cheese (your preference) DIRECTIONS: 1. Place the watermel on and cucumber cubes in a lar ge bowl, and gently toss with the salt and sugar and mint. 2. Drizzle with balsam ic vinegar and toss to coat. 3. Refrigerate for 15 minutes or more. 4. Gently toss one last time before serving. 5. Scatter crumbled cheese on top. Watermelon Vitamin Water Watermelon and Rosemary. Mix in a pitcher: 10 cups of water 1 cup of watermelon cut into cubes 2 fresh rosemary stems. (You can also use any variety of fresh mint for this as well) Leave in refrigera tor overnight before serving. I hope you all get the chance to enjoy some really wonderful wa termelon this summer!
