On Tuesday, June 24 a jury of six men and six women returned a verdict of guilt for Second Degree Murder with a Firearm after deliberating for approximately an hour and a half. Oshea Jackson, now twenty-four, was charged with First Degree Murder with a Firearm for shooting Eric Felder in the head on Washington Street in Hastings, on June 23, 2011. The State, represented by Assistant State Attorneys Robert Mathis and Chris Ferebee, called seventeen witnesses to the stand during the two days of trial testimony. Last month, a St. Johns County Jury found Oshea Jacksons older sister, Candace Jackson, guilty of Second Degree Murder, Attempted Second Degree Murder and Aggravated Battery in the unrelated death of her girlfriends mother and the injury to her girlfriend, caused by running them down with her automobile following a domestic dispute. Candace Jacksons sentencing is set Thursday, July 31. Circuit Judge J. Michael Traynor presided over both of the brother and sisters cases. Assistant State Attorney Robert Mathis was lead prosecutor on both. Oshea Jacksons case will be set for sentencing at a later date. The Florida Association of Counties (FAC) presented Putnam County Commissioner Karl N. Flagg and Putnam County Commissioner E. Walton Pellicer II with the Certified County Commissioner (CCC) designation following their completion of a comprehensive study program developed by the association. Commissioners Flagg and Pellicer received the designation with 40 other county commissioners during an awards ceremony held at the FAC Annual Conference in Orange County. Commissioner Flagg stated his objective, My love for this county and our citizens drives me to be as much as I can be and as qualified as possible to serve Putnam Countys interests. Commissioner Pellicer shared his purpose for participating in this program, I feel it is my duty to take advantage of every opportunity to increase my knowledge of county government in order to represent the people of Putnam County to the very best of my ability. CCC certification is not a requirement to serve as a county commissioner in Florida. However, county commissioners may voluntarily enroll in the program and complete a series of courses totaling 45 hours. The coursework is designed to provide information and enhance skills relevant to a commissioners duties and responsibilities as an elected official. This certification allows our citizen electorate to become experts in county government improving their communities, said FAC Executive Director Chris Holley. The 380 graduates of this program is a testament to the importance of this curriculum to Floridas public servants and our counties. The CCC program coursework covers a variety of topics, such as county government roles and responsibilities, county government structure and authority, financial management, ethics and sunshine law, negotiation skills, economic development, and effective communication. Completion of all coursework averages 12 to 18 months. The University of Florida/ IFAS Extension sponsors this program. For over 80 years, the Florida Association of Counties (FAC) has represented the diverse interests of Floridas counties, emphasizing the importance of protecting home rule the concept that government closest to the people governs best. The Florida Association of Counties helps counties effectively serve and represent Floridians by strengthening and preserving county home rule through advocacy, education and collaboration.

Took the boat to Lake Crescent with the family it was amazing.Elmer Albarran Crescent City We asked our Facebook friends:Tell us about the best fireworks display you have seen?3D Fireworks from Thailand, Benz Mongkhons video!!! Carol Gauthier Chat The best fireworks were probably fourth of the July two years ago. We was on the rooftop of a house on Rock Lake in Orlando. From that position my friends and I were able to watch the displays from downtown Orlando, Casselberry, and many of the neighborhoods in the surrounding area. The coolest were the giant red hearts that were launched from Thornton Park, in my opinion. It was truly a spectacular sight, many of the shows overlapped and for a few moments the whole sky seemed illuminated at once.

Nonymous Juliette Laurie Editor/Publisher We live in a world where kids cant keep their pants up, illegals are crossing the borders by the thousands, Michelle Obama dictates what kids will eat at school, the President, and his family take vacations to the tune of $44,351,777.12, and now our constitution is used as toilet paper by the National Security Agency, (NSA). On August 9, 2013, Obama stood before our nation and made it really clear that he has no intention of stopping the daily collection of American phone records or personal e-mails. Obama also blamed government leaks, by Edward Snowden, for the American people distrusting his domestic spying program. I am comfortable the program, currently, is not being abused, said Obama, You know what? The NSA is following the law! According to the Associated Press, another unidenti ed NSA person like Edward Snowden has now leaked more information. It is now con rmed that the NSA has collected over 160,000 personal e-mails and instant messages from ordinary American citizens and not only have they collected these messages, but have made categories for them like, love stories and heartbreaks, illicit sexual liaisons, mental-health crises, political and religious conversations, nancial anxieties, disappointed hopes, and if thats not enough, over 5,000 private photos. While watching a late night show a week ago, the host visited different colleges and asked young college students, How old will our country be this 4th of July? The number one answer was not 238 years, but 2014 years old! How sad is it when our own youth DO NOT know the age of our country? How sad is it when not only our youth, but most adults in the United States, DO NOT know the constitution. The 4th amendment provides, The right of the people to liberty interest, the right to privacy and freedom from arbitrary invasion. These are the rights that we are supposed to be born with, but this President has refused to acknowledge. According to a national poll, 54% of Americans say, Obama is incompetent and unable to lead our country, well they can add one more to the list. A few months ago, one of my friends children was refused into the military because he has his daughters name tattooed on his right arm and according to the pentagon, 71% of our youth will not be able to serve our country because of tattoos. Yet our politicians can hold of ce with tattoos on their necks, and stay in of ce even after they are busted smoking crack or cheating on their wives, even your President has admitted that he has used marijuana. Each day our God given rights are taken away. The government, over the years, has slowly eaten away at our God given rights to be a free people, just like the ocean that washes the beaches away a little at a time. In less than 20 years, we have come under the thumb of our government. No longer do we have the RIGHT to drive without a seatbelt, to travel on holidays without having to wait 30 minutes in line at a DUI check point. Our kids are forced to wear a helmet when riding a bicycle, they are told what to eat in school. We are forced to buy healthcare or be taxed, and now our right to privacy has been completely ignored. When will the government quit telling us how to live? Today, privacy is an illusion; our freedom will soon be a rumor, and whos to blame? You and I for letting this happen. We the people, for the people and by the people, have let this happen. I for one will not stand for this; I have a voice, and so do you. The only way to get this country back on its feet is to vote out the scum running our country and get some real Americans in of ce. Everyone has an opinion and this is mine. You might not agree with it, but, Thats How I See It. The Illusion of PrivacyDear Editor: Ive written-at this letter three different times and ways; I have discovered the difficultyno the impossibility, of thanking so many people for so much generosity of the spirit! I have a list of 18 enthusiastic Crescent City Citizensindividuals, church, business, and club leaders who began meeting weekly, some four weeks ago outdoors, rain or shine. These individuals committed themselves to the Lake Stella Celebration of, The Saturday before the Fourth, a.k.a., Red, White, and Boom, an emerging holiday tradition that is becoming uniquely Crescent City. Those citizens took charge and asked others for help in creating a free family fun, food, and games party on Lake Stella by day, leading up to the fireworks over Lake Crescent at night. We have such a dream environment here! So, to all the individuals who made this even happen so magically, I thank you. Now, many days later, I more clearly recognize what our community just did. In summary: 1. Thank you to everyone above. You know who you are! 2. Many thanks to the City of Crescent City Government. Theyve encouraged the gathering of citizen volunteer groups to recreate community celebrations. We enjoyed their cooperation as they provided stellar support in all ways for the Lake Stella party. Most especially, a big thanks for raising our towns national flags for July! It was good planning. 3. Thank you to the Southwest Neighborhood who made a robust commitment in the early 2013 to decorate Eva Lyon Park in Red, White, and Blue the entire month of July. They did it again this year, without being asked. Youre such a good example of neighborhood. 4. A really big thank you to Pam Calder and the Crescent City Yacht Club who single handedly managed Red, White, and Boom this year, also without being asked. Someone said to me, They probably made money. I replied, I certainly hope so, given all theyve done! That also goes for all merchant-citizens; we invite and welcome your resourceful enthusiasm in promoting our town. 5. Possibly the most important thank you goes to the residents of Crescent City and our surrounding neighborhoods for coming out to enjoy the fruits of the labor so freely and generously offered, and thanks again to all the above. They are your neighbors, and we are youOur Little Town. Watch and listen for coming attractions/events!

This is a very slim month when it comes to awareness events and unusual holidays; however there is one thing that seems to be happening across the country that is very disturbing. I would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone to take some extra precautions and to be more aware. We have officially entered what is referred to as the Dog Days of summer. This is a period of the summer that we experience the hottest, most sultry temperatures of the season. It was believed during ancient times that Sirius, which was also called the Dog Star, was in the closest proximity to the sun and was responsible for the hotter weather. This period usually extends from July 3 through August 11. There seems to be increasing number of stories in the news of people leaving their pets and worse their children in hot cars while they go to do other activities. This just seems to be happening at a rate of frequency that is unprecedented. These small bodies cannot do anything to help themselves out of an impossible situation. We have a burden of responsibility on our shoulders to them as their caretakers, parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters, to make sure they are safe and cared for properly. The averages are, every 10 days a child dies from #heatstroke as a result of being left in a vehicle and annually, 38 children die in hot cars from heat-related deaths after being trapped inside motor vehicles. These numbers are unacceptable! While writing this article, 13 children have lost their lives so far in 2014 from being left in a hot car in the U.S. It is not as uncommon to forget a child as you may think, 1 in 4 parents of a child under age 3 has forgotten a child in the car at least once. Please do not ever leave your child unattended in a car, no matter what time of year it is, no matter the reason. A group of parents concerned over helping parents to have a way to remember their children came up with the shoe idea. You dont always have your laptop, your purse, or your cellphone. But hopefully you do have your shoes on. So when you put your kid in the back seat, put your left shoe back there, too. Do it every time. Tell whoever takes your kid in a car to do the same. Help each other remember. Spread the word. Make it a habit and make sure no other child is ever left to die in a hot car. Facebook.com/neverleftinahotcar In regards to our furry friends, when its 72 degrees, a car in direct sun can reach an internal temperature of 116, in a very short time and that is like being baked. Once a dogs body temperature gets over about 106 normal temperature is around 101 the result is everything from nerve damage, heart problems, liver damage, systemic organ failure, and it happens fast, within a matter of minutes. Please dont do this to a member of the family. Please take extra care this summer, and when you exit your vehicle, make sure you dont leave anyone behind! Hubby and I were fishing at Berlin Lake in Ohio. Went out in our boat just before twilight. Fireworks started to the East of us, turned the boat to view. When done, started to the west, turned again. Started to the south & turned. Best time ever while camping and didnt have any crowds, just beautiful reflections in the night sky and on the water.

Third Anniversary The Crescent City Kennel located at 2620 South U.S. Hwy 17, celebrated its third year on Friday, June 27 with an open house all day. Two and four legged guests were invited to visit, have snacks and drinks, and to adopt animals and buy products for sale. The kennel offers full service grooming and boarding. Crescent City Community Picnic Crescent City celebrated the fourth of July on Saturday, June 28, with a picnic at Dexter Beach on Lake Stella. The Lions Club, along with many other local organizations, served free hot dogs and watermelon to many residents and guests. The Putnam County Courier Journals Mike Jones and Travis Roberts cooked hot dogs with Dewy Talbot, as well as playing games and swimming with the kids. Mayor Santas wife, Charlotte, was reliving her childhood. She grew up swimming in Lake Stella. Crescent City Commissioner Harry Banks and his wife were involved with the festivities. Cherie Register was passing out brochures on the history of Lake Stella with pictures of the lake from years ago. Everyone seemed to be having a good time. Later in the evening many made their way to Lake Crescent Lake to watch the reworks. Welcome New Neighbors John and Pauline Stokes of Satsuma, are new Florida residents. Retired from the U.S. Navy after 22 years. They have three sons; Scot, Chris, and Eric; two of which are living in Tennessee and one in Washington, and many grandchildren. The Stokes decided to settle in Florida, not far from Johns childhood home in Alabama. Pauline enjoyed Senior Friend Friday at the Pomona Park Community Center and is looking forward to Market Day on the rst Saturday. Home of the Month The lakeside home of John and Laurie Morbitzer was chosen as Home of the Month for Pomona Park. The home was beautifully decorated and landscaped and it is obvious why it was chosen for the award. John said Laurie was responsible for the landscaping and planning and he was just her helper. Their great nephew; Jarec, enjoyed the photo shoot. The home is located at 111 Rowe St., which also has a beautiful view from Lake Broward. Closed for Summer Produce Barn and Grove, LLC., will be closed until mid-September. Co-owners Marc Hall and Wayde Alford say they are getting ready for fall. They will have Satsuma oranges, fresh vegetables, farm fresh eggs, raw honey, peaches, and maybe cheese. They are located at 183 S. Hwy 17, Pomona Park. The Great American Brass Band Festival (GABBF) Held at the Centre College campus in Danville, KY, the Great American Brass Band Festival in June was attended by Dave Vezzette, Putnam Community Band Director, and Jim Foerster, harp player in the band. This was their third year in a row having been there several times before. Jim met a man that knew his Manual high school band director, Bob Grif th, as well as Sam Rosenberg who helped Jim when he was principle horn in the Young Mens Hebrew Association Orchestra, as well as the Louisville Philharmonic Orchestra; Jim said, small world. The GABBF is a one-of-a-kind event committed to preserving brass band music through free performances and education. The festival seeks to showcase diversity through a variety of genres, presentations, and performances, featuring the best brass musicians in the world. Many of the performances center around the war between the states era and are played on era instruments by those clad in representative uniforms. The theme this year was the celebration of GABBFs 25th anniversary. There were variations in music that met everyones taste. There were the Stompers up and the streets blowing their lungs out and having a great time with the audience. There was the Zlatne Uste Balkan Bras Bands performance that was similar to the mariachi bands of Mexico, and the U.S. Southwest Band that is an entirely brass band and common in the Balkan countries. There was also the National Capital Band of the Salvation Army playing music for the Sunday morning church service, which included the accompaniment of the 60 voice multichurch choir. Foerster said Christianity is well in Kentucky, but you had to be there to feel it. Anyone interested in the Putnam Community Band can attend the rehearsals Monday nights at 7 p.m. at the Palatka High School music room or call Dave Vezzette at 386-3283923 or Jim Foerster at 386-649-4752. They would love new members.

The following article appeared in the July 9, 1959 issue of the Crescent City Journal. This story harks back to a time when civic organizations in the community frequently sponsored events at what is now Dexter Park on Lake Stella. Rained-out fourth ends with dance. Alls Well that Ends Well Crescent City Junior Chamber of Commerce found it to be a true slogan, as the last strains of the popular Happy Jacks Band of Palatka climaxed the Fourth of July Celebration Saturday at the High School Gym. All was in readiness Saturday afternoon for the 1st Family Fourth of July Celebration (which the Jaycees are hoping will become an annual affair), and along came the rain. The spirits of the water contestants were not dampened, but the lake became rough and the spectators drenched, so the afternoon program had to be cancelled to the great disappointment of the sponsors and the young and old who had looked forward to a safe and sane Fourth at home. Indoor Cook-out John Martin, chairman of the Fish Fry, gathered up all his paraphernalia from his set up fireplace, with the aid of all the members and friends and set up at the school building, and a delicious supper including fish and all the trimmings were [sic] served to a fair size crowd. Clayton Frank was on hand with all his cook-out equipment and his son, Joe Frank, offered his services and fried to a golden brown hundreds of pounds of fish and dozens of hush puppies, the fish being donated by Oscar Morris of Welaka. Bob Sharp was assistant chef, and he too, made a name for himself. Mrs. Everett Palmer, Miss [sic] Betty Jean Stahl and Mrs. John Martin served the supper in the gym of the school. Dance in Gym Shortly after 9 p.m., the crowd practically filled the gym and a delightful evening of dancing was enjoyed by local folks and many out of town guests. The proceeds of the celebration will be used by the Jaycees to renovate the dock and make the beach an attractive spot for Crescent City people and tourists. President Don Straker and his chairmen, John Martin, Kelly Borgh, Herbert Kelly and Leon McKinnon, were more than pleased with the hearty cooperation they received from the people of the entire community. A4 OUR TOWN Robert Kelsey, M.D. and Internal Medicine Now Accepting New Patients Special to the Courier Journal Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) of cials remind beach-goers to check the surf conditions at public beaches. Understanding the beach warning ags will help to keep you and your family safe as you enjoy the waters. When red ags are ying, swimming in Floridas coastal waters can be dangerous. Rip currents can be dif cult to detect, especially around piers and jetties, said FDEM Director Bryan W. Koon. Pay attention to the beach warning ags for current surf conditions, and be sure you know what to do if you experience a rip current. When at the beach: Before you leave for the beach, check the latest National Weather Service forecast at www.ripcurrents.noaa.gov for local beach conditions. Obey all instructions and orders from lifeguards. Lifeguards are trained to identify hazards. Know the meaning of and obey warnings represented by colored beach ags. Different beaches may use different colors but a commonly used series include: 1. Double Red: Beach is closed to the public 2. Single Red: high hazard, e.g., strong surf or currents 3. Yellow: medium hazard 4. Green: Calm conditions although caution is still necessary 5. Purple: Flown with either Red or Yellow: Dangerous marine life Stay at least 100 feet away from piers and jetties. Permanent rip currents often exist alongside these structures. Pay especially close attention to children and persons who are elderly when at the beach. Even in shallow water, wave action can cause loss of footing. Be cautious. Always assume rip currents are present even if you dont see them. If caught in a rip current: DONT PANIC. Remain calm to conserve energy and think clearly. NEVER swim against the rip current. Stay a oat and signal for help. Swim out of the current in a direction following the shoreline. When out of the current, swim at an angle away from the current towards shore. If you are unable to swim out of the rip current, oat or calmly tread water. Draw attention to yourself: face the shore, wave your arms, and shout for help. If you see someone in trouble, dont become a victim too: Get help from a lifeguard, or if one is unavailable have someone call 9-1-1. Throw the rip current victim something that oats a life-jacket, a cooler, an in atable ball. Shout instructions on how to escape.

Some 30 years ago, the bald eagle had almost vanished from the skies. At that time, biologists believed less than 500 breeding pairs lived in the lower 48 states. Today thats changed. Federal protection and a ban on the pesticide DDT has helped the raptors population soar to more than 600 breeding pairs.5 years agoJuly 1, 2009July 8, 2009Yachting with cardboardAs the Crescent City Yacht Clubs rules state, Let your imagination Cardboard Regatta scheduled for August 15.

Why are you doing what you are doing? Johnson-Overturf Funeral Home386-325-4521 Johnson-Overturf Funeral Home386-325-4521 The why of what we are doing is seldom if ever con sidered. We do things ev ery day that have purpose and are necessary. I am not talking about those things, but did you hug your spouse today? Why or why not? Did you brag on that child of yours? Why or why not? Did you say hello to your neighbor? Why or why not? Are we so focused on our own agenda that we are blind to the fact that the question of why should come up in our conscience? Did we attend church last week? Why? Did we attend church because we always do? Or someone expected us to? Or we are on the board of the church? Or we wanted to visit with our friends? Our reasons for doing anything should al ways be preceded by why. Lets consider what the bible says about why we should live life and how. The first word that comes to mind when I think of church is the word holy. This word is mentioned over 600 times in the bible. Now there are many things in the bible that are declared holy. In Psalms 99 the Lord our God is holy. The taber nacle in the wilderness was holy. The furniture in Solo mons temple was declared holy. Some animals were declared holy. The list is quite lengthy of the things that the bible declares holy and most times it meant that it, was separated for Gods use. It is an interesting study. Anyway back to the word holy. All these things are way back then and how is that relevant to us now? It is all well and good for God to be holy and for him to declare things holy, but then in the book First Pe ter, the statement is made in verse 15, But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; then verse 16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. What do we do with this statement? God is commanding, yes com manding us to be holy. The first thing that comes to my mind is how can I do that. This is not a request that when all is well be holy or when you feel like it be holy, or when all your bills are paid be holy, or when everyone is well be holy. No he said BE HOLY. This is quoted from the book of Leviticus 11 chapter. God wants to have holy people but what is the definition of HOLY? Sadly to say in the day we now live when the Word of God is being polluted and diluted in many churches the definition has become a feel good thing rath er than a consecrated life that was asked for by God. The word holy is defined by Webster as: devoted entire ly to the deity or the work of the deity; having a divine quality. This would lead us to understand that be ing holy is a life style that must come from the inside. As Peter stated He which hath called you must be allowed to do a separating work in each of us in order to meet this tremendous challenge. So the question why am I doing what I am doing must be asked and if we are to be holy it must be answered with the Holy Scriptures as they are writ ten not by some loose inter pretation.

Summit Street in Crescent City. For additional information please call The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) encourages families and young anglers to try a diversity of freshwater shing locations and techniques to catch a variety of sh. The Big Catch program is Florida's family-friendly, freshwater angler-recognition program, with 33 different freshwater sh to target. Simply catch a sh that exceeds the qualifying length or weight, take a photo and submit it to BigCatchFlorida. com. Special youth sizes encourage their participation, and quali ers earn a customized color-certi cate, decal and discount for a photo mount. Big Catchs origins go back to 1953, but the concept was revamped in 1996 with creation of categories for Specialists ( ve qualifying sh of the same species), Masters ( ve qualifying sh of different species) and Elite anglers (10 qualifying sh of different species), as well as a youth category representing a size roughly 25-percent smaller than the adult quali cation size. Rules were relaxed to allow either a length or weight measurement to qualify. Ivan Salis of Callahan was an early participant following the programs rebirth and quickly quali ed as a Channel Cat sh Specialist, which remains his passion. Salis came from Ohio after a stint in the Merchant Marine. Now he is sharing his love of shing with the next generation. About nine months ago, Salis met Ishmael Lacoste, a 12-year-old, whose mother knew Lacostes wife. Lacoste saw Salis Specialist Certi cate and became intrigued. Salis has since mentored Lacoste in his quest to become a successful angler. We are talking commitment, passion and love for shing. In nine months, Lacoste has submitted nearly 40 qualifying Big Catches culminating in earning his Elite Angler Certi cate on Wednesday, June 4. His rst Big Catch was a longnose gar on November 23, 2013. It was followed by bass, bluegill, brown bullhead and redear sun sh, earning him his Master Angler Certi cate in January of this year. To attain his elite status he added spotted sun sh, Florida gar, warmouth, bow n and yellow bullhead. Along the way, he has been recognized as a specialist for six different species and documented a Bream Slam (catching four different pan sh species on the same day). Id like to make shing a career someday, said Lacoste, who is homeschooled. He is very appreciative of Salis mentoring him and being so inspirational. Together they have persevered through wind, rain and yellow ies in their ongoing quest. Salis says he has enjoyed watching Lacoste learn and take on new challenges. Another thing that makes their productivity so impressive is that all of their catches have been from shore or shing piers. Thanks to the FWCs Fish Management Area (FMA) lakes in Duval County, they have had plenty of quality opportunities, including at Oceanway and Bethesda. FWC sheries technician Willie Prevatt has spent over 20 years ensuring anglers have great shing opportunities at those and other regional FMAs and helping teach youth and adults to sh. Prevatt is a favorite resource for Salis and Lacoste. I was very happy Ishmael made Elite Angler, not because he caught most of his sh in the FMAs I work in, but simply because he is a really good person/student, Prevatt said. I think I am most proud of Ishmael and Mr. Salis because they proved by example that you can compete with anglers shing big lakes in expensive bass boats and with fancy equipment, in a small FMA on the shore or dock, even in an urban area. Fishing is fun, challenging and a great way to spend quality time with family and friends, but there is more to it. A Special Report on Fishing and Boating 2013, makes the case succinctly: Fishing on lakes, streams, rivers and seas is one of the most popular outdoor activities. As a gateway activity, it not only connects Americans with the outdoors and a healthy lifestyle, but also introduces them to other outdoor activities. As active outdoor participants, Americans learn the value of environmental stewardship and a healthy connection to nature, while also supporting public lands and community programs nationwide through license fees and federal aid. The FWC is creating the next generation that cares by reaching out to all youth via a variety of outreach programs, including the Florida Youth Conservation Centers Network (www. FYCCN.org). Through an effective statewide network of diverse partners, youngsters are provided education and guidance to safely engage in traditional outdoor activities and to accept stewardship of our precious outdoor heritage. In addition to Big Catch, which inspired Salis and Lacoste to get outdoors and go shing, the FWC has a TrophyCatch citizen-science program that rewards anglers for catching, documenting and releasing bass heavier than 8 pounds (TrophyCatchFlorida.com). You can register for TrophyCatch and Big Catch at the same time, which makes you eligible for a drawing for a Phoenix bass boat, powered by Mercury Marine and equipped with a Power-Pole.Florida Fish Busters BulletinBy: Bob Wattendorf Thousands of boaters will be enjoying Florida waters this summer, but they are not the only ones. Manatees also are quite common this time of year, as they migrate to their feeding and resting areas for the season and being hit by boats is the leading cause of their injuries and deaths. Lifelong Florida boater and sailing coach Ian Lineberger said it takes just a little effort to exercise a lot of caution. "You can see the manatees if you wear a good pair of sunglasses and know what you're looking for," he said. "They're usually a big, dark smudge in the water. If I'm not in a manatee zone and I see a manatee, then I'm going to give them a wide berth and probably slow up a little bit." Because it's sea-turtle nesting season, they also are at greater risk. Aside from looking for these critters, there are other clues. A "footprint of swirls" often can be seen in the water just above a one-ton manatee, and a 300-pound loggerhead sea turtle may only show its head. Boaters who hit an animal are encouraged to call 1-888-404-3922 so wildlife of cials can help. Provided they were boating legally, boaters will not be charged or ned. Elizabeth Fleming, senior representative with Defenders of Wildlife, said it's important to watch out for identi ed "manatee zones," obey the boating speed limits and wear the right pair of sunglasses. "Wearing polarized sunglasses is always a good thing," she said. "It helps boaters see through the water; it helps see these other types of animals, and can save a life." According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, about 5,000 manatees live in Florida waters. Scientists believe the population, near extinction at one point, is increasing. Lineberger said they're not the only thing that has bene ted from environmental efforts. In addition to threats from boaters, manatees also can be harmed by environmental factors such as red tide and loss of warm-water habitat. The state Wildlife Conservation Commission said last year was the worst year on record for them, with 830 manatee deaths double the number in the previous year. More information on Florida manatees is online at defenders.org. Endangered Species Act West Indian manatees in the United States are protected under federal law by the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972 which make it illegal to harass, hunt, capture, or kill any marine mammal. West Indian manatees are also protected by the Florida Manatee Sanctuary Act of 1978.Special to theCourier Journal Watch for Manatees
What does this number mean, 10177? Well Ill get to that in just a moment, but please allow me to tell you a story first. It was in the fall of 1969, just a few days before Halloween, I remember this because I was dressed in a Spiderman costume. I was in the back seat of my mothers 1962 Buick Wildcat, and we were headed to Biloxi Mississippi. The reason for this trip was to pick up my Uncle; he was finally coming home from Vietnam. For you younger readers, back in the 60s we didnt have video games, FM radio, or cell phones. And our Play Station was a rope hanging over the Tennessee River, or a handmade slingshot. Our heroes were found on the big screen, and in comic books. My Uncle Jimmy was my biggest hero, and I believed in my heart, that he alone went to Vietnam to save the world. As we drove down the highway from north Alabama to Biloxi, Mississippi, I remember day dreaming about what it was going to be like when we got there. I bet theyll have my Uncle in the back of a convertible, and all the people will be standing on the streets cheering, and chanting his name as they parade him down the streets! Man was I wrong! Instead of thousands of people chanting his name, there were only a few, and the shouting was not, Welcome Home, but nasty remarks like, You communist, and Baby Killer, etc needless to say, the ride home was a quiet one. It was a few day later, October 31, the day all kids look forward too. I was once again all dressed up in my Spiderman costume, and my Uncle Jimmy had transformed himself into Captain America. I guess it was about the fourth or fifth House when my Uncle said, Go to those three houses, and get your candy, Im going to sit on the curb for a minute. As I went to make my way to the second house I noticed my Uncle, sitting on the curb with his face in his hands. This was the first time I had ever seen a grown man crying. Whats wrong Uncle Jimmy? Did you hurt yourself? Are you Ok?, I asked. While he was trying to compose himself I noticed a piece of paper sitting on the curb, it was a handmade card that I had made him. Wiping his eyes off on his sleeve he said, Kid. Im no hero. I didnt save the world. Didnt you see all the people who wanted to kill me a few days ago? Didnt you see the people spitting and calling me names? The world is a cruel place and people just dont understand. I remember putting my arms around his This week I am going to be starting a new series about herbs and spices and how they can be beneficial to us in cooking and for medicinal purposes as well. Many of us are not sure of the difference between herbs and spices and in some cases both can come from different parts of the same plant. In cooking the terms are used interchangeably many times and that is why some of the confusion arises. Hopefully in the end we will all have a much clearer understanding of the difference and how to use them to their best potential to make our food more delicious and our health better. What Are They? Spices are taken from the fruit, bark or rhizome (the underground stem, such as ginger) of a plant and are typically dried before use. Herbs are the leaves and above ground stems of a plant and can be used in both the fresh and dried forms. Some plants yield both herbs and spices, cilantro which also gives us coriander (a spice) and dill which gives us dill seed (also a spice) are two examples. The herbs and spices that we buy in the store are grown all over the world. The same herb/ spice may be grown in several different places and have a slightly different aroma or flavor profile because of a difference in climate or soil. Try different ones to find which ones you prefer or perhaps you will even prefer different ones for different purposes. How To Use Them How readily herbs and spices release their flavor depends on the use. For example, in a marinade or salad dressing they will take longer to release their flavor and need a longer amount of time to get the best result, possibly hours up to days. When a heat source enters the picture the time needed changes considerably. With whole herbs/spices such as bay leaves and peppercorns, they would need to be added at the start of a recipe to get the fullest amount of flavor. Herbs and spices that are ground can be added later in the cooking process so that they do not lose their entire flavor potential. Our cuisine here in the United States is considered mild in comparison to many other countries around the world when it comes to the level of seasoning we put in it. It is because of the diversity that we have come to enjoy here in the US that has awakened our palates to the world of flavors that exists beyond our borders. Lets consider East Indian cuisine for a moment. Their climate is as varied as ours is and their food varies from region to region the same way ours does. In the cooler regions of the country they use herbs and spices that tend to warm the body and eat a diet of heavier foods. In the warmer regions they eat lighter foods and cook with herbs and spices that help to keep the body cool. Other Forms Plants, for our purposes, herbs and aromatics can also be used to make essential oils, tinctures, and decoctions which are used for food and medicinal purposes. An essential oil is the volatile oil of a plant that has been removed by the process of steam distillation. They are used topically, as an inhalant, and as flavorings, however not all essential oils can be used for all purposes. That is a subject for another article. Tinctures (or extract) are made by soaking dried herbs in alcohol (such as vodka or rum80 proof) for an extended period of time and then using the resulting fluid to treat various ailments. Vanilla extract is technically a tincture itself. They can even be made with honey to produce a cough syrup. Decoctions made with herbs are achieved by boiling the herbs in water to extract the oils and medicinal constituents from the herbs. Coffee and tea are decoctions. Those used for medicinal purposes can be boiled down to remove more of the water to further concentrate the herbal content. In Cooking Different ethnic cuisines have different herb/spice combinations and ways of using them that are unique to them. For example Indian cuisine has garam (hot) masala (mixture of spices), a mixture that varies literally from region to region and sometime from household to household. The basic recipe is comprised of: Turmeric Black and white peppercorns Cloves Cinnamon Black and white cumin seeds Black, brown, and green cardamom pods The whole spices are toasted in a dry pan and then ground fresh for every use. It is the basis for curries and most Indian recipes. Onion, garlic, star anise, and nuts can be added and amounts of each can vary for flavor differences. In my upcoming cookbook, one of the recipes uses an herb mixture very common in France called Herbs de Provence. This is a mixture of herbs and spices that you can buy fairly commonly in most stores, but I am including a recipe for the mixture here as I find it is better to make it at home yourself. If you make it in small quantities it is fresher when you want July 9, 2014 COURIER JOURNAL Section B Ive never been a soccer fan, but must admit the American involvement in the 2014 World Cup pepped me up a bit and I found myself riveted to the boob tube last week whenever the U.S. played well, not really, but if the contest were played at a convenient time for me. Ive been disinterested with the game for years, but confess that action around the goal can be entertaining, particularly when a headshot rockets into the goal. Ive always hesitated to criticize the pace of the game as being boring in this column in the past because John Thomas, the mens soccer coach @ CCHS (thats what it will be soon) is a decent sort of guy and I didnt care to include him in the criticism; however, I had just written something about soccer that might not have set well with Coach and it appeared that he found an opportunity to give me a scare when I was jogging past the Thomas house on S Prospect several years ago. He was exiting his driveway in his car at that instant and I had to jump out of the way, whereupon he smiled, waved good-naturedly and laughingly yelled, Maybe next time buddy. I suspect Ill hear about this, just as I did when I happened to come upon Lloyd Harris, the Thomas erstwhile neighbor, driving his car from his house to the street to pick up the morning paper, and I later wrote to the editor about that. Anyway, getting back to the nal U.S. game, the goalie for the U.S set some kind of a record for saves during the contest, which went in to extra innings, no thats not rightmust be overtime; it was an outstanding athletic performance, but my gut feeling is that that kind of record, although impressive, is not one you would necessarily want to set time and time again. You could conclude that the defense was leaking or being blown out when that many shots on goal were made, could I be wrong about that? Yes, very de nitely, because I know nothing about the game. At any rate, the U.S. gave a good accounting of itself, although it failed make to the seminals for the second year in a row. There was a certain amount of controversy caused by the decision to cut one of the teams veterans (Landon..?) prior to the start of the games. From what I gathered, including him would have been a better move for the morale of the team. This guy had been a regular for some time and there were some who obviously were unhappy about the deal, but we dont know the whole story behind the decision and Ive said enough about that! I will say that there is no doubt about the grassroots rise of soccer in popularity around the country. The soccer Mom thing is for real and you know it is when car companies use the phrase to sell more SUVs to mention one consumer product. So were raising soccer players rather than traditional baseball players these days and I believe it is safe to say that sport will eventually be as popular in the States as softball and baseball. It might already be there because both boy and girl teams are standard fare in schools at all levels, from preschool through college. The Major League baseball season is fast developing into a clearer picture of who is in and who is out. Beginning with the American League, the surprise team has to be Baltimore. Toronto was favored to win the East Division, and are not out of it, but the 0rioles are loaded this year and are whipping up on the Red Sox and Yankees on a regular basis. I believe the 0rioles will win the East. Another surprise in the American League is 0akland which is the only major league team with better than a .600 winning percentage. Milwaukee is the surprise team in the National League so I would not be shocked to see a Baltimore/Milwaukee World Series. What did I predict a couple of weeks ago? Kansas City vs Atlanta?

When you are using them, do not pour them from the container into a steaming pot, this will introduce moisture into the container. Instead pour them into your hand and crush them slightly to release the flavor before you put them into whatever you are cooking.

Mom said youre a hero and I believe her. For the next few hours we collected more candy than I had ever seen in my life. Later that night as we sorted out the candy, my Uncle said, Kiddo, Im sorry you saw me cry tonight. There are a few things real men do, they fight for freedom and whats right, they pray, and they cry from time to time. Now let me fast forward to the year 1981. I was just out of high school and had enlisted in the service. I wanted to follow in my Grandfather and Uncles footsteps. I wanted to go fight for my country, but being young and dumb, I did something stupid. I had already taken my testy for the service and was scheduled to be in Texas in two days. My buddies decided to have a going away party for me. The plan was to party my butt off, because I was going to make a career out of the service, and wouldnt be able to party for twenty years, but that was before the cops showed up. I was arrested that night with a couple of my friends for possession of pot. In one quick moment my dreams of going into the service, and becoming a doctor were crushed. Not only did the State Attorney want to send me up the creek without a paddle, but the government wanted to take away the boat I was in, and send me to a military prison. I was in hot water. With the help of a good attorney, three thousand dollars, and some probation, I avoided the big house. So I never got to serve my country and become a hero, like our veterans. To this day I regret the night of my going away party. This past weekend, Larry from the Winn-Dixie allowed me to do a fund raiser for the VFW, post 10177 to help raise funds, so our local veterans can continue to help different organizations in our community. In all we raised $1,510. These Veterans are the backbone of our community; some fought in WWll, Korea, Vietnam and in current wars. Now the reason I told you the story of my Uncle was for this reason, I respect both the men and women who have fought for our country, and it is because of their sacrifice that we enjoy the freedoms we have today. In last weeks article I was pressed for time, and I made a very big mistake, which I would like to make right. I forgot to mention the women who have served our country, and trust me; these women let me know about it. So to the women who have served our country I want to say, these men could have never done it without you, and am sure I speak for everyone when I say, Ladies, Thank you so much for the freedom you have given us. In closing I want to thank Larry from Winn-Dixie for allowing us to hold this benefit and for the items Winn-Dixie donated. I also want to thank the men from post 10177 that helped; Commander Lawrence Coleman, Judge Advocate Ron Lewis, Jr. Vice Commander John Williams, Master Sargent Richard Pelehach, Senior Vice Commander Joe Marine, Post Chaplin Thomas Olivent, and Crescent Citys Unsung Hero Bob Spereno. Last but not least I want to thank the 10177 post for making me an honorary member of the VFW. Gentlemen I am honored, thank you so much. Thank you for reading this article and be safe.Herbs from pg.
