Lane closures will be monitored and may be adjusted in the event of a traffic backup. The posted speed limit will remain during construction; however, speeding fines are dou bled when workers are p resent.

Two weeks ago Peal was thrown from a horse, and the back of his skull was crushed when he landed on the corner of a utility trailer. Peal was own to the Shands Hospital in Gainesville. There have been several attempts to take Peal off of the breathing machine but all have failed. Peal has developed an infection and has been spiking a fever over the past few days. Sometime over the next few days, doctors will remove the breathing tube from Peals throat and do a Tracheotomy. This is where they will make a small incision in Peals throat and run the tube down his airway. Peal will still be hooked up to the breathing machine and life support. Another reason for the Tracheotomy is that Peals lungs are lling with uid and need to be suctioned out. As of today Peal is still in the ICU Trauma Unit at Shands Hospital.

National Friendship Week The third week of August from Monday, August 18 through Saturday, August 23 is National Friendship Week. Good friends are as rare as diamonds. We have to take care of our friendships just as much as any love relationship, if not more so. We get so busy in our day to day lives that sometimes we forget to really listen to each other. We all have a lot going on, thats true, but you never know when someone may need a friend to just listen a little harder than normal, sit with them a little longer, spend a little more time than usual. Last week we lost one of the greatest comedians, performers, and all around wonderful people of our generation to severe depression. Robin Williams was suffering from a disease that so many others also suffer from. The most precious gift we can give to anyone is the gift of our time and you never know when that could be what it takes to save someones life as well. I urge you, this week and every week, take that extra moment and just really listen to your friends are saying, or more importantly to what they may NOT be saying! National Lemonade Day Today, August 20 is National Lemonade Day! It has only been around since 2007, a veritable baby in the world of days we recognize. Founded in Houston, Texas by Lisa and Michael Holthouse, the day was established as a means to teach todays youth beginning entrepreneurship by opening a lemonade stand to earn money. When Lisa was a little girl she wanted a turtle as a pet and her father refused to buy it for her. She decided to set up a lemonade stand to earn the money and buy the turtle herself. Lemonade Day is a strategic 14-step process that walks youth from a dream to a business plan, while teaching them the same principles required to start any big company. Inspiring kids to work hard and make a profit, they are also taught to spend some, save some and share some by giving back to their community. Since 2007, Lemonade Day has grown from 2,700 kids in one city to in 2013, 250,000 children took part in Lemonade Day across the US and Canada. With the help of partners like Google, Lemonade Day will bring this entrepreneurial experience to 1 million kids in 100 cities across America, sparking entrepreneurship and empowering youth in a way thats never been done to scale. Children who register are given all the information they need to set up and run a lemonade stand, at no charge. So if you happen to see a lemonade stand set up somewhere during your travels this Wednesday, be sure to stop and buy a cup, you may be contributing to the next great American entrepreneur! For more information about National Lemonade Day visit http://lemonadeday.org/youth. Senior Citizens Day In 1950 there were 200 million people over 60 years old by 2000 that number had tripled to nearly 600 million and by 2025 it is estimated that there will be over 1 billion older persons. Thursday, August 21 was declared Senior Citizens Day in 1988, by then president Ronald Reagan. Since more and more people are living longer these days, it was thought that it would be necessary to raise awareness of their achievements and contributions to society. This day is an opportunity to celebrate the wisdom and achievements senior citizens have made, as well as to advocate for the rights of older people throughout the world. Although it is an observance and not a National holiday there are many different things across the country that are in place to honor our senior citizens. Such as International Day for Older Persons which is celebrated on October 1 throughout the world, and is an important time to remind governments about their pledges to work towards the Millennium Development Goals of helping, among other things, to end hunger and poverty for older persons and people of all ages. Through news stories and social media event coverage, special community gatherings inviting senior citizens, their families, friends and volunteers are organized to honor them. Several businesses give special discounts or deals to senior citizens on or around August 21. If you have a senior citizen in your life, do something special for them that day to show them how much you truly appreciate everything they have done for you.

Nonymous Juliette Laurie Editor/Publisher Well, Well, Well, it seems I stepped on a few toes last week, and the week before. If youre going to respond to something I write, then make sure you get your facts right rst. This week I want to respond to a few letters that came into the newspaper. First, let me respond to the rst letter which stated that Israel is not an ally. In 1948 the United States and Israel formed an unusual alliance. The United States would give Israel funding and train their military to ght. In return, Israel would let the U.S set up camp in their back yard, use their airelds and provide the U.S with intel on what is going on in their region. Our goal was to strengthen the U.S presence in the Middle East. As Jesse Helms a Republican Senator once said, Israel is the American aircraft carrier in the Middle East, and the military foothold in the region offered by the Jewish State alone justied the military aid that the United States grants Israel every year. Dont get me wrong, I do agree with most of the stuff that the person wrote in with, like the fact that Israel is a drain on our economy because we give them foreign aid, but you have to look at the fact that Israel also provides most of our intelligence for that region. Without Israels intel we wouldnt have a clue as to what most groups are doing on that side of the world. The fact is, we need Israel as our non-NATO ally to maintain some assembly of peace in the Middle East. Next: To the person that wrote in on the Facebook page bashing me. Thank you for at least taking the time to comment. In your comment you said that I copied, word for word, a YouTube video in last weeks article, but you left no proof. Yes, it is true that I watch a lot of YouTube videos and also read the Associated Press releases every day. This is 2014 and the way we share information around the world. Now I would like to ask you a question. When youre watching these videos on YouTube, what makes you think that Im not the one doing them, especially since I have over 90 videos on YouTube? Dont get me wrong here; I respect both of your comments. This is why I write this column every week. Every day I hear people talking about how screwed up our country has become. I hear people debating things that they have no clue as to what they are talking about, but its all talk. It seems that everyone has an opinion but no one has the intestinal fortitude to do anything about it, at least there are a few of you that are willing to stand up and say something. This column is not about if Im wrong and your right, its about being an American and standing up for what we believe in, but the problem I see is this, We live in a Country that has been going downhill since its birth. We live under the Constitution given to us by our forefathers, yet how many people can not recite just two sentences of the constitution? How many of you know what each bill of rights means? Starting next week I will be explaining the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Everyone has an opinion and this is mine. You might not agree with it, but, Thats How I See It.Whos Right The Putnam County Courier Journal welcomes your letters to the Editor. Letters should be brief and legibly written.

The Arts Council of Greater Palatka is bringing back one of last years most popular performers, Ben Prestage. The special concert will be, Friday August 22 at the Larimer Arts Center, 216 Reid Street, in Palatka. The doors will open at 6:30 and the show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets may be purchased in advance for $10 at the Larimer Arts Center Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets are also available at The Sound Garden, 912 St Johns Ave in Palatka, Wednesday and Thurs day from noon to 6 p.m. or Fridays and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. The cost at the door, if seating is available, will be $15. This concert is for ages 17 and up and beer, wine, and sodas will be served. Prestage first per formed at The Larimer Arts Center last year. Arts Council Executive Director, Denise Aiken, said, It was so nice to see people coming from all over North and Central Florida to see such a high quality of entertainment here in our home town. This is part of what the Arts Council does for the community. Luke Taft of the Arts Council said that last years concert was a sellout and seating is limited so advanced ticket purchase is strongly urged. Ben Prestage is well known in music circles around the world. He is the ultimate in the one-man-band, playing percussion with his feet, an assortment of stringed instruments with his hands, and vocals and harmonica with his mouth. Prestage deliv ers a full band sound all on his own while performing heart felt songs about life, including its ups, downs, and humor. Bens interesting approach to i nstrumentation and his award-winning original songwriting recipient of The Most Unique Performer at The Songwriters Showcase of America, has earned him invitations to perform across North America, Europe, and as far as North Africa. All awards aside, he has proven himself, through his live performances, to be the future of American Blues, Roots Music, and Americana and is one of todays most talented outsiders. While living in Memphis, Prestage became a b usker (street per former) on historic Beale Street. This is where he perfected his drum-kit. I played out there a few times with nothing but a guitar and my voice. Once people heard me they liked it, but it was hard to get them on my side of the street with all the other music going on down there. There were some other guys out there who played drums with their feet, and they always got peoples attention. I started playing drums with my feet as an attention grabber but soon found out that the drums played with foot pedals actually enhanced my music dramatically. Not only were people listening and buyin discs, they were now dancing and hollerin to boot. Now I am to the point where, if you close your eyes, you would think there was a professional drummer with a fullsize drum kit behind me. I learned allot from the guys I shared the street with, including John Lowe, Robert Belfour, and Richard Johnston. Ben returned to Mem phis over the next few years for the International Blues Challenge (the worlds larg est gathering of Blues musicians) and within three consecutive years he took 4th, 3rd, and 2nd place. He is also the only two-time recipient of the Lyon/ Pitchford Award for Best Diddley-Bow Player. For more information about the show or to find out how to reserve tickets, call The Arts Council at 386-3288998, or visit http:// artsinputnam.org. Concerts at the Larimer are supported in part by memberships, the Putnam County Tourist Development Council, the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.

So, then, good intentions is do ing something in a positive way This will work well as long as life is good and the horizons are clear. How ever, what happens when, the doctor gives a diagno ses that is not good, or the bos s calls you in to his office and lays you off, or your spouse decides they no longer want to be a part of your life, and this list could go on and on. When these occurrences happen and sometimes they do, our in tentions come under scru tiny Questions begin to be as k ed. What am I going to do with this situation? How am I going to get through this storm? Can my good intentions carry me to the other side of this problem? Where is the solution? Can I continue to lean on my own good intentions? A scripture found in Prov erbs says Guard your heart bec ause the issues of life flow out of it. If our good intentions are based on the sure word of God then that word will take us through any phase of life that comes our way. However if our good intentions are what we have come up with and are based on our thoughts then we have to be the enforcer. If we recognize the sure word of God as our source and base our actions on it then God becomes the enforcer. We do not have to go through the problems of life alone. We have a source that will strengthen us in the midst of chaos. Peter penned these words Bring all your care unto me [God] because I careth for you. Notice the th on the end of care, which means it is an ongoing care that never quits. He will not get you part way through a situation and drop you. The bible says God will never leave you or forsake you but will go with you even to the end of the world. In the 17th chapter of the book of John Jesus begins to pray for us and says in verse three that knowing God is life eternal. He goes on to say that He wants us to have joy even in a world filled with hate. We must not let our current situation change our outlook. If life becomes a challenge and the problem grows beyond our control, dont lose focus. Matthew writes these words Come unto me all you who are labor and heavy laden and I will give you rest. God wants to give us a hand up. So receive Gods care and support today. CHURcCH A5 = Crescent City = First Baptist Church of Crescent City . ...... 386-698-1578 101 S.

Do you remember growing up and wanting a pony? I think most parents would agree, the first major purchase one of our kids wants is a pony, or horse, especially little girls. From the time I can remember, I have always loved horses, maybe it was because I grew up watching shows like, Paladine, Raw hide, the Lone Ranger, Bonanza, and yes, Mr. ED, but when my mother took me to see the movie, Black Beauty, on the big screen, it was all over. I would forever want a horse, and this is the reason for this article. So what do you do when one of your kids says, Mommy or Daddy, I want a pony? Well I think I might have the answer for you. A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by a lady named Angie Wright, and she wanted me to cover a group of young people who were graduating from a six week summer camp, that she and a group of volunteers run every year. This is no ordinary summer camp, so please allow me to tell you the story of this summer camp and the lady who start ed it. T he Roxies Ranch was started by Angie and Floyd Wright shortly after they were married in 2001. While I was interviewing Angie I asked her this question, Why did you start the horse ranch? I expected her to say something like, Well we wanted to make a living and we love horses, but that wasnt the answer I was given, instead I got this for an answer. Well, I met Floyd and within a couple of weeks we were married. I had been traveling around the country; I was a photographer and took pictures of kids at their schools. Im originally from Pennsylvania and after marrying Floyd we decided to get this property in Satsuma, so that I could have a couple of horses. Not long after we moved in, some of the kids in the area started vandalizing our property. Smashing the mailbox, tearing down our fence, stuff like that. I thought about calling the police, but after Floyd and I talked about it, we decided to invite the kids over to our house and teach them about the horses. The vandalizing stopped and the young people were starting to show up more and more. It was at that point Roxies Ranch was born. For the past 13 years Angie and Floyd have hoisted a six-week summer camp. Each year a couple hundred youth apply, We only take 60 kids and by the end of the summer around 40 will have completed the camp. Angie does not charge for this camp, yes, you read that right this is a free camp! Throughout the year Angie teaches kids as young as four years to 18 years old about horses. These young people not only learn about horse safety, but also how to care for a horse. They learn the anatomy of a horse, and how to tie different knots, and then are given a test. Besides summer camp, Angie also teaches young people during the rest of the year, and encourages whole families to work together, es pecially before purchasing a horse. Some people think they want a horse until they realize, the horse cant take care of itself. By coming out and learning what its all about, it helps them to make a better decision on purchas ing a horse, Angie said. N ow this isnt the only thing Angie does for our community. Angie also hosts a Wounded Warrior, PTSD, and Special Kids program, she is also HEPA certified. If youre a Wounded Worrier, suffer from PTSD or have a special needs child, Angie wants you to come out and enjoy yourself. Angie wanted me to express one thing here; The R oxies Ranch is not a babysitting facility nor is it a daycare. We want young people who want to learn about horses, and enjoy riding them, the last thing we want is a child who doesnt want to be here. Okay, so I have to tell you this story about one of my visits to Roxies Ranch. A few days ago my 15 year old daughter says, Dad, dont you need to go to the horse ranch to do more research on your article, in adult language I know that means, Dad, I really want to go ride the horses! Okay, so off we went. Please allow me to share this day with you. Its Saturday afternoon and my daughter and I arrive at the 11-acre, Roxies Ranch. Angie greets us at the main gate and once inside I see some younger children, all whom are very polite. I talked to little Riley and Cameron Clark and Vance Dalanie, while Angie, Deana Jackson and Kelly Clark sad dled Marmalade. All seemed to know a lot about the care of horses, I was impressed to say the least, especially since all but one was under the age of nine. Whenever I do an article on someone or something, theres always one part of an article that changes it to a story, and this is it. I walk over to a picnic table near the round pen, set my camera bag down, and start to change out the lens, and its at this point that I hear a tiny voice say, So whatcha doing? As I look over, I see the cutest little four year old, with blond hair and big baby doll eyes staring at me, and waiting for a reply. Oh, just putting a different lens on my camera, so I can capture you and marmalade in time forever, I said. Oh, thats a long time. Can you take a lot of pictures of me and Marmalade? After assuring her that I would, I decided to ask her some questions. I mean what better inter view can you possibly get than that of a four year old. I asked little four year old, Sydney Sadler, What is the most important thing you have learned about horses? Well, you never want to walk real close behind a horse. she said. Why is that, because you might get kicked? I replied. Not just that, you might get pooped and peed on too. Horses can poop a lot, and you better not be standing there when they pee neither. I about lost it when she s aid that. Before I close I would like to mention again, Roxies Ranch does not charge for what they do. They are always in need of volunteers who want to make this a place that our children can learn new and exciting things. Also, if you would like to donate things like, toilet paper, paper towels, hand soap, water, juice boxes, horse feed or snacks, they wont refuse it. Instead of going on vacation every year, they take their vacation money and put it into those items. As I sit here remembering the conversations of the little people I interviewed over the past two weeks at Roxies Ranch, the words that came from their mouths do not compare to the words of excitement I saw in their tiny little eyes. It takes me back to a time before video games, and expensive toys, to a time where the Lone Ranger rode up on Silver, where Mr. ED really could talk, and I could ride Black Beauty off into the sunset. Today those shows are long gone, but the excite ment and magic still exist in the hearts of little girls and boys when it comes to horses. Angie has agreed to host one birthday party a month at the Roxies Ranch. I will be starting a birthday club this month and one lucky kid will have the privilege of having his or her birthday party there. I want to thank Angie and Floyd along with all the parents and children I met over the last couple of weeks for allowing me to share in their memories. If you would like to contact Angie for more information her number is (386)244-4154. Thank you for reading my article and be safe.School is starting and the time has come to start sending the kids back to school with their lunch es ready to eat and keep them energized so they can do their best to learn and participate in all of their in-school and after-school activities. Basics First lets talk about all the basic components that their lunches should include to be balanced and healthy. Protein: Of course we all think of ham, turkey and roast beef, maybe even tuna or chicken salad. There are also lots of non-meat/vegetarian/vegan sources of protein that can be used as well. Eggs (not vegan), legumes (beans and peanuts) think Hummus and peanut butter, nuts and nut but ters, cheese both traditional and vegan, and avocados. Protein is essential for building and repair within the body and it is essential, meaning the body cannot produce it or store it. It also helps to maintain the immune system, helps to keep us full, and energized. Most kids need 1 gram of protein for every 2 lbs. of body weight, so a child who weighs 70 lbs. needs 35 gr. of protein per day. Here is a chart of some common foods and their protein con tent. 2 t ablespoons peanut butter (7 grams protein) 1 ounce or two domino-size pieces of ched dar cheese (7 grams p rotein) 1.5 ounces chicken breast (10.5 grams protein) cup broccoli (2 grams protein) Fruits and veggies: This one is very easy. There are just so many options for this category. Most kids love d i pping veggies into dip or even ants on a log (celery smeared with peanut or nut butter and dotted with raisins). There are so many kid friendly options. Applesauce, kid sized fruit packs, pre-sliced apples (you can do this yourself). One each of a fruit and a veggie should be in their lunch as this will help them achieve their 5+ a day and will give them an array of vitamins from A,B complex, C and beyond! Complex Carbohydrates: Carbs are instant quick energy. There is a whole world these days beyond white bread and potato chips! Complex carbs in clude grain products, such as bread, crackers, pasta, and rice. The less refined they are, the better they are for us, that is why whole wheat bread is better for us than white bread. This is no rule that says that we always have to take a sandwich with us for lunch. Sometimes, it is nice to have a change with some black beans and rice! Maybe, a whole wheat pasta salad with some tuna or chicken added. Tortilla wraps and pita bread can also give you a whole different option for sandwich wraps, pita stuffed sandwiches and quesadillas. Just mix and match fillings for a nonstop variety! Miscellaneous: This is where we put all those other items that we can include but dont need to go overboard on. Think cookies, candy, chips, fruit leather, pickles, olives, crackers, jel lo, pudding and any other high sugar or high salt treats. These things are meant to be just that a treat! Not the basis of the meal. If you see that your child starts to return their lunchbox with all the good stuff still in it and all the treats consumed, you may want to leave these things out for a bit to get them back on the right track or maybe substitute healthier options for a while. Putting it All Together: So now you have the basics of what to put in, how do you put it all together, you ask? Well, I have you covered, not to worry! Start with the things you know that your students will like, maybe even leftovers from last nights d inner! Did you make a roast for Sunday dinner? Mondays lunch could be a roast beef wrap in a tortilla with some Swiss cheese, sliced tomato, lettuce (or even fresh spinach), and a drizzle of a favorite salad dressing! If your kids are old enough, you can use short skewers and make kebobs. Use cubes of ham or turkey with cherry tomatoes, c heese cubes and maybe some melon cubes in between, be creative! Kids like to find different things in their lunch boxes. For a different twist on the sandwich try putting any kind of sandwich toppings on a tortilla and roll it up tightly and then slice it as you would a loaf of bread creating pinwheels! They are so cute and they contain familiar flavors for your kids! Another very good replacement in many lunchboxes is hummus. Hummus is a dip made from Chickpeas, Tahini (sesame seeds), olive oil and seasonings. It can be used in place of mayonnaise on sandwiches, as a dip for veggies or as the primary protein source for a vegetarian meal. Here is a simple recipe if youd like to try to make some at home, or you can get it in the deli section of most grocery stores. Try it for yourself! Hummus Ingredients: 2 cups drained wellcooked or canned chickpeas, liquid re served 1/2 cup tahini (sesame paste), optional, with some of its oil 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus oil for drizzling 2 cloves garlic, peeled, or to taste Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste 1 tablespoon ground cumin or paprika, or to taste, plus a sprinkling for garnish Juice of 1 lemon, plus more as needed Chopped fresh parsley leaves for garnish Preparation: 1. Put everything except the parsley in a food proces sor and begin to process; add the chickpea liquid or water as needed to allow the machine to produce a smooth puree. 2. Taste and adjust the seasoning (I often find I like to add much more lemon juice). Serve, drizzled with the olive oil and sprinkled with a bit more cumin or paprika and some parsley. I wish you a healthy and successful school year. If there is anything that you would like to see me write about in the coming months please let me know! I would love to hear from you! Until then Stay Healthy! August 20, 2014 COURIER JOURNAL Section B Im starting off with something that may seem a bit odd for this column, but is just struck me that it might be of interest to some readers who are not into the details of sports, as I sometime overdo, and that is whats with the City of Cleve land? You know, that working mans city on the shore of Lake Erie. In a state that is considered key in the outcome of presidential elections and the home of the Cleveland Indians, Cavaliers, and Browns, all of which struggle along in medi ocrity to the chagrin of sports fans of that town. Now, in a matter if two months, Cleveland has the look of a sports mecca. First came the return of LeBron James, who scooted out of South Beach due to being home sick(yeah, right?), and second, inuenced the signing of the Minne sota Wolves, Kevin Love (maybe the best big man in basketball). Along with All Star, Tyrie Irving who played one year at Duke, these three will bring more than one title to that lovely city by the lake. James and his two cohorts, Dewayne Wade and Bosch, brought two world titles, back to back, to Miami, so we know that a bright future of the Cavs is assured with James and two younger up and coming, proven players on the Cav roster. Then we have the Browns and the signing of Johnny Manziel, erstwhile of the Texas A & M Ag gies and the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner who is slated to play behind a veteran quarterback; but, if you saw him play last weekend in an exhibition game, it is not out of the question that he will soon be the starter. He just did a plain good job, running for a crucial rst down late in the game and throwing accurately; almost as important, he has taken over the Cleveland world of sports, creating excitement about the future of a moribund program. Add to these two major sports teams, the improving baseball Indians, and you have what has to be the sports city of the future. Boston, New York, San Francisco, you name it, have had their moments of glory with the Celtics, Red Sox, Patriots, the Yankees, Giants, Knicks and Mets and the 49ers and the baseball Giants, but its Clevelands chance now, pure and simple (guess you should add Philadelphia in there with the Phillies, 76ers and Eagles). Who would of thought that Cleveland, Ohio, USA, could be the home of three national champions over the course of the next ve years, maybe sooner? I do recall that in the 50s, the old Cleveland Browns with the incomparable Jim Brown, did win it all and that the Indians claimed a World Series around time, but nothing close to those titles since then. For those of you who watched some of the exhibition games last weekend, Im sure there were some that were blown out by the yellow ags that were thrown due enforcing the new rules set by the NFL. These rules, too numerous for me to describe, are there to protect both defensive and offensive players from those injuries, particularly around the head and neck areas and that is a good thing. The downside to all of this is the various interpretations by the ofcials. There will have to be some kind of standard set both for the benet of the players and the spectators. One thing that came out of the games that I watched was the outstanding play of Greg Bortles for one, of the Jax Jaguars. No question that coach Bradley will have a tough decision about who will be under center when the bell rings.
