Nonymous Juliette Laurie Editor/Publisher In last weeks, Thats how I see it, I had asked you to write or call our elected officials, de manding that they do something about one of our soldiers, Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi, who i s being held in a Mexican prison, because he made a mistake crossing the Mexican border. At the time I truly believed that I was the only one in Putnam County that had the intestinal fortitude to contact the White House, but I was wrong! I was forwarded a letter, sent in to the Courier Journal yesterday, and today my faith has been restored by one person, her name is Mrs. Peggy Trice. Mrs. Trice not only answered my challenge but has gone above, and beyond what I would have expected anyone to do. Not only has Mrs. Trice called our elected officials but she has also written letters, and has started her own petition to have Sargent Tahmooressi released. Mrs. Trice has issued us a challenge, and that challenge is to sign her petition demanding that our President, and elected officials demand that Sargent Tahmooressi be released NOW! Mrs. Trice said she will be sitting on her front porch at the corner of Prospect and Florida Ave this 4th of July waiting on us to sign her petition. I heard that Mr. Roberts, (one of the staff writers for the Courier Journal) would be at the Winn-Dixie in Crescent City this weekend doing a benefit for our local Veterans, so I emailed Mr. Roberts. In our email conversation, I asked if I could have a petition placed on one of the tables for people to sign, demanding the release of Sargent Tahmooressi, to which Mr. Roberts agreed. This morning I contacted Mr. Roberts once again, and asked if Mrs. Trice might be able to do her petition at the Winn-Dixie instead. Mr. Roberts said yes, and that he would set her up a table under a tent, if the store manager would approve it. Unfortunately I will not be able to make it to sign Mrs. Trice petition because I will be out of town, but I would like to issue another challenge to you. This Friday the 4th of July, I would like to challenge every resident of Putnam County to show up and sign Mrs. Trice petition to have one of our soldiers being held prisoner in Mexico, RELEASED! Sargent Tahmooressi fought for our freedom in two wars and suffers from PTSD, and in Mrs. Trice words, I challenge all of us to fight for Sargent Tahmooressis freedom as he has fought for ours. Please join me in sending a message to Washington that it is well past time for our Government (of the people, by the people, for the people) to get off their collective DUFFS and get Sgt. Tahmooressi back on American soil! I know for fact that Mrs. Trice and I do not agree on everything I write, but on this particular subject we do. We stand together not as Democrat, Republican, Right Wing, Left Wing or Tea Party mem bers, but as true Americans, bound together by love for our country, and a 26 year old young man who fought for the very freedom that we celebrate this 4th of July. Mrs. Trice is neither a coward nor is she spineless. Mrs. Trice is a true American who loves her country. Thank you Mrs. Trice, you have restored my faith in the American people. On 911 it only took a few terrorist to bring this great nation to her knees. I say, if a few men can do that, then we as a group can make a difference. If this petition, and this young man, (Sargent Tahmooressi) are not worth your time to get involved, then you are a coward and spineless and you should find another country to call home. Everyone has an opinion and this is mine. You might not agree with it, but, Thats How I See It. Sign the PetitionGov. Scott Calls on U.S. Sec. of State John Kerry to Help Fla. Veteran Being Held in Mexico TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Today, Governor Rick Scott sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry requesting the Department of State engage the Mexican government on behalf of Andrew Tahmooressi, a Marine reservist and Florida resident, who has been jailed in Mexico for inad vertently crossing the border with legally registered guns s ince March 31st. Below and attached is the full letter. June 27, 2014 The Honorable John Kerry Secretary of State United States Department of State U.S. Department of State 2 201 C Street NW W ashington, DC 20520 Dear Mr. Secretary, I am writing to express my concerns regarding Marine reservist, and Florida resident, Andrew Tahmooressi. As you know, since March 31st, Andrew has been jailed in Mexico for inadvertently crossing the border with legally registered guns, and the situation appears to be further deteriorating. Given the time that has elapsed, I am respectfully requesting that you personally engage the Mexican government and use the resources of the Department of State to intervene on Andrews behalf to resolve this matter quickly so that he can return home. The Departments inaction for one of our nations veter ans is frankly unsettling. Its the hope of all Americans t hat the State Department serves to protect and defend its citizens abroad, especially in moments such as this one. One would think that with the vast resources of the State Department, federal officials could do more to as sist the Tahmooressi family. I n national press accounts, Andrews mother, Jill Tah mooressi has expressed frustration on the lack of sup port shes received from your colleagues in the Admin istration during this difficult time. Reports also indicate t hat Andrews morale continues to diminish the longer he languishes in the Mexican prison. Andrew served our nation in two tours of Afghanistan, and its incumbent on us all to resolve the situation in the timeliest manner possible. Thank you for your immediate attention. I await your actions on behalf of Andrews well-being and safe return. Sincerely, Rick Scott Governor The Putnam County Courier Journal welcomes your letters to the Editor. Letters should be brief and legibly written. To be published, they must include the writers signature, printed name, phone number, and hometown. Address letters to: Editor 330 N. Summit St., Crescent City, FL 32112 or FAX to 386-698-1994, or E-mail to letters@cjnewsfl.com. Dear Editor: I have to say that I dont often see eye-to-eye with A. Nonymous opinion pieces in the Courier Journal, but in the matter of Marine Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi, I am with him 100%. In the June 25 piece, A. Nonymous provided two phone num bers and tasked us to call the Whitehouse unless, of course, we were spineless or just didnt care. Well, here I am, neither spineless nor uncaring. At the time of reading his piece, I had already made a few calls and had a letter in the works, but thats not enough, so I accept A. Nonymous challenge to call the Whitehouse and more. I will be sending letters to various elected officials and would like to include a petition to be sent via U.S. mail, fax, and email. Thats where you Courier Journal readers come in. I will be sitting on my front porch at the corner of Prospect St. and Florida Ave. on Friday, July 4 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and I invite you to stop by and sign the petition. I will also have available a list of names, addresses, etc., and urge you to start your own letter-writing campaign. And, in keeping with A. Nonymous no excuse reference, if youre too busy to compose a letter, you can use mine. If you cant afford stamps for the U.S. mail, then fax or email it. The important thing is to come together as a community and JUST DO IT, and not just ONCEkeep on writing and calling until Sgt. Tahmoor essi is home. I know Sgt. Tahmooressi isnt from Crescent City, but he is an American citi zen and combat vet who has been in a Mexican jail for three months because he brought guns into the country illegally. He did that because he made a wrong turn and couldnt find a place to turn around so, of course, he brought guns in illegally. However, according to news reports, he told the Mexican authorities up front that he entered the country by mistake, and that he had three guns in his truck. According to Fox News, there is now a hearing set for July 9 and Sgt. Tahmoor essis new lawyer said, This is a federal court and as in any democratic nation, you will not find an executive calling up a judge and ordering the release of any suspect. It makes no difference if it is a mayor, governor, or the president, theres not a phone call in the world that will change this. After reading the entire ar ticle (foxnews.com), what this new lawyer says scares me greatly and I wouldnt be surprised if Sgt. Tahmooressi stays in that jail for a long time to come. There is also an article from The Washington Times thats too lengthy to go into all the detail here, but it indicates that according to Homeland Security statistics, armed Mexican troops and police regularly stray across the U.S. border, some 500+ in the past decade. And, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, in many of those cases the armed Mexican military or law enforcement personnel ended up in confrontations with American authorities, and 131 of those were detained (although its not clear for how long). Sounds similar to what Sgt. Tahmooressi did, but there was no confrontation, only detention. Oh, heres a thought maybe President Obama should give Mexican President Nieto a call and ask whats up with that. So, this is where I challenge all of us to fight for Sgt. Tahmooressis freedom as he has fought for ours. Please join me in sending a message to Washington that is well past time for our government of the people, by the people, for the people to get off their collective DUFFS and get Sgt. Tahmooressi back on American soil! Looking forward to seeing you on the fourth. Please spread the word to your family and friends who might not get the paper. P.S. No, A, I dont think Obama cares, but thanks for lighting a fire under me. Peggy Trice Crescent CityIn Response to Does Obama Really Care?July is a month that brings with it many outdoor activities both during daylight and evening hours. Unfortunately as the sun starts to go down the bugs start to come out and one of the peskiest of them all is the mosquito. As if their very bite wasnt bad enough, with the itching and the red welts they leave behind, these days they carry serious viruses that we need to take precautions to pro tect ourselves from. This year in addition to dengue and West Nile virus we have the n ew Chikungunya virus, which is rearing its ugly head here in the United States for the first time this year. It was first identified during an outbreak in 1952 in southern Tan zania, although it is suspected to have been present in Africa and Asia for much longer. U p to 28% of people who are bitten by infected mosquitoes never have symptoms. Those who do will typically become ill three to seven days after the mosquito bite, and those at greatest risk for severe illness include newborn infants, those over 65 years of age, and those who have other health conditions. Symptoms of Chikungunya virus may include: around the eyes. In unusual cases, infection can involve the brain, eyes, heart, kidney and other organs. Prevention and Protection The prevention of ANY mosquito-borne disease is the same no matter what it is. First is spraying by the city or county to kill larvae in large bodies of standing water such as ditches and retention ponds. The next step lies in your hands, and that is by empty ing out any source of standing/stagnant water that you may have sitting around your h ome. It takes as little as a tablespoon of water for the mosquito larvae to thrive and grow to become adult mosquitoes. This is something we must all be very diligent about since new water collects every time it rains. Just take a few minutes after each rain to walk around your property and empty out any standing water you find. It will go a long way toward keeping your area lower in mosquitoes. As far as personal protection goes, inside the house, be sure all your window screens are in good repair. If you are going to be spending time outdoors there are a few things to remember: recipe here for a spray that contains no chemicals, (do not use DEET on a child under 1 year of age) http://ohlardy.com/homemade-non-toxic-mosquito-repellent yourselves accordingly. Remember to stay safe this summer! Cookout with the family and then parking on the bridge for fire works.Joy Jordan TincherSan Mateo

We know it as Lake Stella now but before Crescent City was Cres cent City, this area was called Ellington, named for the wife of Joseph J. Chaires, one of the three men who originally settled into the area in the mid 1860s. At that time, the lake was called Lake Lena, probably af ter Lena Newson, the first child born in what is now Crescent City. It became Lake Stella, later as it resembled a star to the early settlers of the area and the word, Stella is Latin for star.An early Real Estate brochure stated that Lake Stella was supplied by springs inexhaustible, full of the finest fish and a charming place for sail ing and rowing, especially for ladies and childr en. The same brochure not ed that Lake Stella was 45 feet higher than Lake Cr escent, and hydropow er might be obtained from Stella to Cr escent. In 1886, the railroad started traveling through this area. Lake Stella be came the means of trans portation to the Crescent City Railr oad Junction. Captain S. Martin LaBree dug a small canal be tween Lake Stella and a much smaller lake, Bir d Lake, which faced the first train station. He op erated a chain of boats which he ferried back and forth transporting freight, passengers, mail and express.

Mary LaBree, ran the railr oad express office at the southwest corner of Central Avenue from where passengers along with mail, fish and or anges would leave for the railr oad station by boat.

Re-Imaging Eve Johnson-Overturf Funeral Home386-325-4521 Masters Funeral Home Palatka386-325-4564 I believe Eve got a bad rap, and its time we tell her story differently. A logical first step is to acknowledge that this story comes from a particular time and place when the mans point of view, was considered to be the only point of view. Face it folks, we no longer live in that time. So, lets re-imag ine Eve from a wider point of view. What I see in Eve, is what I see in us all: curiosity. We live in a world filled with mystery and beauty, and we are cu rious about what we see. So we explor e by reaching out: by touching and tasting. This is how we learn about sweet and sour; hot and cold; nour ishment and poison; life and death. Our shar ed spirit of curiosity moves us forward. We use it to make cars faster, medicine more effective, and story-telling more creative: in cluding stories of food. Think Food Channels. Think Food Deserts. (If you are not famil iar with food deserts, please be curious. Our community is labeled as one.) It appears that Eve r ecognized the value of good food, present ed well, which was healthy at the same time. She r eached for the fruit-not-described-as-an apple which appeared on the tree of knowledge. Brain food! Fruit with a kick! Fruit filled with the power to distinguish between good and evil, right and wrong. Who wouldnt want some of that? In fact, wouldnt the world be a better place, if we all had some of that? Per haps that was Eves thinking, because accor ding to the Bible, she shared. I like that about Eve because I like people who share. I won der if Eve shared because she was trying to take car e of the family? She and Adam werent officially one yet. Having been a single mother, sole provid er of food, I can relate to that. Regar dless of the reasons, Eve made sure those around her had something to eat. Theres a lot to be said for that. It also appears that Eve was a brave leader. She was willing to reach beyond the rules that had been laid down for her Rules which said you can only have this much, and ab solutely none of that. Like all good leaders, Eve exer cised her right to dissent. Unwilling to stay in the box, she reached out and shared what was for bidden: nourishing fruit filled with knowledge. What could be mor e godly than that? Unfortunately, a favorite past-time of too many people is to twist the story of great lead ers and point fingers of blame. Sadly this has been Eves lot as well. An empir e has been built based on blaming Eve for de stroying perfection. As if one person, could singlehandedly cause all people to fall into a vortex of sin so deep and wide that we become helpless and hopeless to make our way out. Nonsense. It aint like that. Y ou are blessed, and you are a blessing. Be a blessing to one another.

On June 15, 1926, A.W. Chamberlain proposed to the Crescent City ofcials that a bath house, tower and dock on Lake Stella be built so that the town cit izens could enjoy the use o f the lake. At that time, a motion was made and car ried with the town appro priating $250.00 from the 1 926 tax funds toward the construction. A bathhouse with two dressing rooms and benches along the inside walls was built at the end of the sturdy board dock. There was also a dock on the west side of the bath house and there were s teps at different levels. A wooden tower stood in the deep water, some 50 feet, more or less, to the southwest of the dock. Swimming lessons have been given during the summer at various periods throughout the years. The earliest swimming teacher that my mother, Margary Neal Nelson, remember was Paul Aaron (brother of the late Roswell Aaron) who taught lessons during her early years. In the 1960s, Kelly Borgh, the high school coach, gave lessons and also taught life-saving classes. He was the swim ming coach all during my e arly school years. The Crescent City Jay cees had come into pos session of the Lake Stella b each front property and during the 1940s, the Jaycees repaired the bath house as a project with local citizens also assist ing with donations. The d ressing rooms were lat er removed leaving a cov ered shelter with benches a round the sides. In 1941, the Crescent City Jaycees assumed the responsibility for getting the local residents and merchants to close their business on Thursday af ternoons. The businesses w ould close at 12:15 PM, beginning the rst Thurs day of May, until the last T hursday of September. It was reported on April 18, 1941, that 29 merchants had signed the agreement. This had been tried in pre vious years with compli cations and it was hoped w ith the Jaycees spon soring the program, there m ight be complete harmo ny among the businesses o f the city in the matter of closing stores (one after noon) during the long, hot, s low summer season. For the rst Thurs day, May 1, a picnic was pl anned with citizens preparing fried chicken, fried potatoes and per haps, lemonade before g oing to Lake Stella to cel ebrate this afternoon holi day by cleaning the swim ming beach. T o prevent children from getting injured, there was a real need to clear all grass to eliminate hiding places for snakes. The bathroom was to be thor oughly cleaned, disinfect ed, and repaired. T he Board of Health had begun eradication of such places when they didnt meet certain standards and the Jaycees wanted to prevent any problems, as well as to make the area safe for the health of the citizens. The Jaycees also were appealing for help in keeping the bathing facil ities clean and safe after t hey had completed this clean-up program. After the working ses sion, everyone was to go s wimming before attend ing the above mentioned v ictuals in the picnic baskets. Plans were to get (the late) AL Dompe to bring his ice-water truck down there with one of those washtubs full of ice water or something and all that. The invitations from (the late) Doc Braddock and Al Dompe stated, everyone is invited and that exact ly who we mean, everyone. S end all the kids down and come yourself. Heres what you should bring your basket of grub, sand wiches and the stuff you w ant to eat all the family and tools to t as many of them as you can mus ter. P.S. We aint fooling 2 t ill 6 dont fool us. The May 9 issue of the local paper reported that it was indeed gratifying to (the) Jaycees to see the grand turnout at the cleanup day on Stella Beach and it is grand to look on the splendid work that was done. There were about 75 grown-ups and kids on hand and most of them had a part in the work. Also, stated was, If, in our town, when we all agree that there is a job that should be done we would get together to do it as we did on this job, our town would not only be much prettier, but would be much farther advanced and we would all have more to enjoy, hence we would all have a much better town all the way around. A goal of the Jaycees at that time was to clean and beautify the shore of Lake Stella all along Grand Rondo. As the men in the organization were all young men who had little time to spend on this proj ect, they needed the coop eration of others. O ther changes have taken place since then as tables and benches were added and the area en closed by a fence. T he City gain possession of the park in 1973 when they purchased 600 feet of developed waterfront property on the lake from the Crescent City Jaycees for $4,000 and the old City Hall building on Central Avenue. Lake Stella swimming area also became the rst Bicentennial Park in Flor ida, and perhaps in the n ation. It was dedicated August 25, 1973 and is now known as the Thomas Dexter Park. Thomas Dexter owned Dexter Farms i n Lake Como and lived in New York. He read about the lack of a swimming fa cility in a local newspaper a rticle and agreed to do nate $3,000 to help build t he beach. He also told the City they could have access to a large mound of white sugar sand on his proper ty, if they would use it to e nlarge the beach. Florida National Guard Troops in St. Augustine agreed to haul the sand from Dex ters Farm to the beach d uring a two day training exercise. They used army trucks and equipment to move the 300 loads of sand that doubled the size of the beach area. The late U.S. Rep. Bill Chappell of Ocala was guest speaker at the dedi cation. Also attending was R ep. A.M. Craig from St. Augustine and Bill Mill er, the executive director o f Florida Bicentennial Steering Committee along with many other local and county ofcials. The Concerned Commu nity Citizens Organiza tion, during this time peri od was most instrumental i n spurring interest in the Lake Stella beach and the Thomas Dexter Park proj ect. I t was written on the program that the most signicant fact about the park was that it followed the American tradition of incorporating individ uals and government for i t brought together all citizens of the commu nity; local, county and s tate government; and the benefactor, Thomas Dex ter, who supplied the sand t o create a beach at Lake Stella. In 1996, the City re ceived a grant of $50,000 t o improve the beach area. The park received a re modeled picnic pavilion, n ew handicapped-acces sible restrooms, barbeque g rills, more picnic tables, a beach volleyball court and other additions. The dilapidated six-foot fence was torn down and re place with a four-foot high f ence. An additional pic nic area was added south o f the main beach with a short nature trail outlined in sand from the Central Avenue boar ramp north ward. T he same spirit is hap pening today by a group of c itizens who want to see the Thomas Dexter Park brought back as a swim ming area on Lake Stella t hat our children can en joy. It has held fond mem ories for a lot of us that g rew up in Crescent City and needs to provide these same memories for the fu ture citizens of Crescent C ity.A6 Stella from page A4 rfnftb rff f REITER INSURANCE AGENCY, INC.926 N.

My grandmother use to say, There are no strangers in our coun try, only friends who h avent met yet, and this holds true to a group of men I met about two months ago. I was helping with a car wash fundraiser that my daughter w as involved in when I met a man by the name of John. John, or Big John as I call him, is a member of the V.F.W in Crescent City. As Big John and I were talking, he men tioned that the V.F.W w as in need of funds, and would like me to meet the main guy at the V.F W named Lar ry. I was given Larrys n umber and a week later found myself at Larrys house in Cres cent City. Now here is w here my story gets real interesting. It was a Saturday af ternoon when I arrived a t Larrys house. We sat on his porch for about an hour, and talked about the dif ferent groups that the V .F.W has helped over the years. The main goal for their fund raisers is not to give back to the Veterans, but back to the com munity, like the base ball field in Crescent C ity, where they had new sod installed, but thats for another story. As I was about to leave, Larry men tioned another project t hat they were trying to get started, and be ing from a family of v eterans, he had my attention, so please al low me to explain. T wo of my biggest passion in this world are, kids and Veter ans, so when Larry t old me the story of a soldier with an un marked grave, he had m y attention. One of the reasons the V.F.W is doing their next fundraisers, is to col lect money for a head stone for a Veteran b uried in Pierson Flor ida who has an un marked grave. I would like to intro duce you to a man t hat none of us will ever meet, a man who served our country with pride and hon or, a soldier named, C harles M. Robinson. Robinson was born in Pierson Florida on December 1, 1939. At the age of 23, the Viet nam War was in full s wing. For you young er people reading this a rticle, this was a tough time, because you basically had two options, go to college, and get good grades or be drafted into the service. Some young men took flight, and ran to Canada, while others were drafted and found themselves fighting overseas. Instead of running to Canada or being draft ed, this 61, brown h aired, blue eye, 180lb. young man, along with a group of his friends enlisted into the Army in October of 1962. During his time at boot camp Robinson proved to be an excel lent shot with a rifle, i n fact he was one of the best, so it was no surprise to any of his buddies that Robinson was given rank as a sharpshooter. Unlike a lot of his fel low soldier, Robinson d idnt get to hang out with his buddies, but instead would go out for weeks at a time all by himself with no one to cover his back. As a sharpshooter or sniper if you will, Robinson would lay in the tall grass, an open field or in the top of trees waiting for his mark. Not a glamorous job but one that the Army had given him. As I lay awake in my bed last night, my thoughts were of Rob inson, and how lone ly it must have been f or him. Not only was Robinson in a foreign land fighting, but he was separated from his family and friends, all alone. At the age of 23, Robinson had to see things, and do things, that most of us will never understand, nor could handle. In October of 1968, Charles Robinson was given an honor able discharge; he had s erved his country for six long years. After returning home Robinson worked in the concrete field and was described by one of his friends as, A hell of a wielder, and Carpenter, who could fabricate anything. Robinson had one son that he named Charles, and accord ing to Charles Senior, L ittle Charles was the, apple of his eye. Sometime around January of 2005, Rob inson was admitted i nto the V.A hospital in Gainesville Florida where the doctors p erformed a biopsy on his lungs. It was de termined that the lin ing had deteriorated or w hat they called the Interstitium was gone, and after pumping up his lungs they col lapsed again. Charles M. Robinson would not leave the hospital, and on March 23 at 3:50 p.m. he took his last breath. Today at the United Methodist Cemetery on east Washington Ave. in Pierson stands a small flag with a small bouquet of flow ers, placed there by h is son. The grave of a man who served our country, but this grave will not be unmarked for long. For over a week I con tacted headstone com panies all across the c ountry trying to find someone who would donate a headstone, and was at the point of giving up when I decided to make one last call. My last call was to a company out of Jacksonville named, Affordable Headstones. The lady there just happens to be from this neck of the woods, and when I told her the story of Soldier Robinson, she and her daugh ter Dannielle agreed t o donate a headstone. As I write this arti cle, the headstone for C harles M. Robinson is being cut in Geor gia, and will be de livered sometime after t he 4th of July. Right now we are planning on holding a memo rial service to honor C harles M. Robinson, the last week of July. I along with the Vet erans of the Crescent C ity V.F.W and sound ing members will be h olding this ceremony in Crescent City. This will be announced in the upcoming weeks. I hope that everyone who reads my articles will attend to honor one of our fallen sol diers. This weekend we w ill be smoking ribs at the Winn-Dixie in Crescent City to bene fit our veterans, I hope t hat you will come out and show your sup port for these men who h ave fought for our freedom. Thank you for reading this article and be safe.In last weeks article we talked about probi otics and how they are b eneficial to our health. Most of us are familiar with them, most com monly in the form of y ogurt. This week, as promised, well learn about prebiotics, what they are and what their job is. What Is a Prebiotic? We are all familiar with the need for fiber. It helps to keep our bowels regular by pro viding bulk. We get it f rom fruits and vegeta bles, whole grains and s ometimes we have to supplement. This type of fiber is called insolu ble fiber since it doesnt e ver dissolve or digest. There is another type of fiber that our bodies need called soluble fi ber or prebiotics. They a re the part of the food that we eat that keeps our intestinal flora nourished and properly fed. There are long chain, short chain, and full spectrum prebiotics. They are all obtained from fruits and veg etables that we con sume every day. The l ong chain prebiotic is Inulin, long chain pre biotics contain 9-64 l inks per saccharide molecule and are di gested more slowly, p roviding food for bac teria in the left side of t he colon. I know this seems very technical, but just think of it as a long acting prebiotic thats going to last the longest in the colon. Also, this is the nat urally occurring form o f inulin, not the kind you find as a food addi tive in so many things t hese days. The short chain pre biotic is Oligofructose, c ontaining 2-8 links per saccharide mole cule and fermenting in t he right side of the co lon, considerably faster. T hink of this one as a quick burst of food for the flora that is just inside the colon. Amaz ingly, both of these pr ebiotics survive the small intestine relative ly untouched! T heir presence in our diet is surely by design as is evidence by the fact that they exist in breast milk. It is not unreasonable to believe that we should con tinue to include them i n our diets as older children and adults as well. Some of the health benefits of prebiotics go well beyond the bene fit of our intestinal flo ral alone. It has been s hown to increase the absorption of dietary calcium and magne sium. There is evidence i t may help to inhibit precancerous lesions in the colon. Onions and Garlic Leeks Foods to look keep at the top of the list for prebiotic health are bananas, onions, gar lic, asparagus, arti chokes, soybeans and w hole-wheat foods as well as root vegetables, jicama root, dandelion root, burdock root, and leeks. Leeks Leeks are a part of the Allium family of vegeta bles, which is the same f amily as onions, garlic and shallots. Thought to be a native of Cen tral Asia, it has been k nown to be cultivated there and in Europe for centuries. It was high ly treasured through out Rome and Greece f or its benefits to the throat. Nero used it to keep his voice strong and Aristotle wrote that it was what kept the partridges singing clearly. The Romans in troduced it to the UK, w here it claimed a po sition of high esteem. B ecause of its ability to withstand the cold weather it flourished and became the na tional emblem of Wales. T hey contain high amounts of a flavo noid called kaempferol, w hich has been shown to protect the lining of our blood vessels from damage. Leeks also provide measurable amounts of protection against several differ ent types of cancer, m ostly likely including colorectal cancer. As they are in the same family as garlic and on ions, they also provide h ealth benefits in terms of support for many health problems relat ed to oxidative stress a nd chronic low-level inflammation. These health problems would include atherosclerosis, type 2 diabetes, obesi ty, rheumatoid arthri tis, and allergic airway i nflammation. How to Select and Store Leeks should be firm and straight with dark green leaves and white necks, not be yellowed or wilted, or have bulbs that are cracked or bruised. Since overly large leeks are more fibrous in texture, only purchase those that have a diameter of one and one-half inches or less. Leeks are avail able throughout the y ear, although they are in season from the fall through the early part of spring. Fresh leeks should be stored unwashed and untrimmed, in a plastic bag in the refrigerator, where they will keep fresh for between one and two weeks. Cooked leeks are highly per ishable, and even when k ept in the refrigerator, will only stay fresh for about two days. A Few Quick Serving Ideas Healthy saut leeks and fennel. Gar nish with fresh lemon j uice and thyme. Add finely chopped leeks to sal ads. M ake vichys soise, a cold soup m ade from pured cooked leeks and po tatoes. A dd leeks to broth and stews for extra flavoring. Vichyssoise INGREDIENTS 4 Tbsp butter 4-5 cups sliced leeks, white and pale green parts only (from about 4 large leeks) 1 medium on ion, chopped or sliced 2 l bs Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and chopped 6 cups water (vegetarian option), or chicken stock 2 teaspoons Kosher salt (more to taste) 1/2 cup sour cream 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream Chopped fresh chives for garnish METHOD 1. In a large (6-quart) pot, heat the butter on medium high heat un til it melts and foams u p. Continue to heat until the foam subsides a little and the butter just begins to brown. 2. Immediately toss in the sliced leeks and onions. Stir to coat with the butter. Cook for several minutes, reducing the heat to medium if necessary, until the leeks and on ions are translucent a nd wilted. 3. Add the chopped potatoes, salt, and wa ter or stock. Bring to a b oil, reduce to a sim mer. Cook, partially c overed for 30-40 min utes, until the potatoes a re completely cooked through. Remove from heat. 4. Pure using an immersion blender or working in batch es, blend in a blender. ( Careful! With hot liq uids) Pure until com pletely smooth. If you w ant an even smooth er soup, you can take t he extra step of pressing the pure through a s ieve with a rubber spatula. 5. Allow to cool a bit before stirring in the sour cream and whipped cream. Allow to cool completely and chill in the refrigera tor. The soup should be s erved just below room temperature. If it is too cold, it wont taste as good.Add more salt to taste. Serve garnished with chopped fresh chives. Enjoy, and Stay Healthy!
