The Florida Dental Association reminds parents of the impor tance of a preventive c leaning as school starts. The U.S. Depart ment of Health and H uman Services estimates that more t han 51 million school hours are lost each year because of den tal-related health p roblems, making it the number one rea son for missed school. J acksonville dentist Dr. Richard Stevenson says tooth pain can be a large roadblock in a childs success. While theyre in school if they have that continual pain, they cant concentrate properly so they cant perform at a peak lev el, Stevenson says. Theyre not getting all the benet of going to school when theyre in pain like that. According to the American Journal of Public Health, chil dren who reported h aving recent tooth pain were four times more likely to have a low GPA when com pared with children w ithout oral pain. The state of Florida pro vides dental services t o low-income and special-needs children up to 18 years of age under Kidcare pro grams, which include M edicaid, Healthy Kids, MediKids and Childrens Medical Services. Stevenson says in spite of the greater prevalence of uoride in drinking water, what a child eats and drinks can have a big impact, even if they have good brushing habits. Its starting to get worse. All the soft drinks, Gatorade, the high-acidic food, the rened carbohy drates. Its easier to do t hat than it is to eat fruits and vegetables, says Stevenson. According to the Academy of General Dentistry, tooth de cay is the most pre ventable disease in c hildren. The Nation al Institutes of Health r eport 41-percent of children, age two to 11, have had a cavity.Stephanie Carson Florida News Connection Dental Problems number one reason Kids miss School Photo courtesy of Project Dentists Care. Children in Florida who reported having recent tooth pain were four times more likely to have a low GPA. A few years ago our very own Travis Rob erts, staff writer for t he Putnam County Courier Journal, heard an older couple ar guing. The old man t urns to his wife and says, Woman, what is wrong with you? she quickly replied, You dont woo me any more. For you young er people, Wooing, is a te rm that was used in days of old, when a man would romance a woman, in order to make her fall in love with him. So Roberts decided to write a short para graph about a man n amed Bubba who went on a dating site, and met the love of his life. Rob erts believes that e ach one of us has a Bubba in our family, no matter what race or walk of life we come from. In the book, Bub ba has a quest, and h is main goal is to get to the woman his heart cant live without. Theres one problem, Bub bas Family is a b unch of nuts, and somehow they are always mess ing things up like, B ubbas broth er Biscuit getting b lown up in an outhouse after he dropped an engage ment ring into the out house pit. E ach and every day Bubba writes Mary a letter explaining why he cant send for her. These letters are not to offend anyone, says Roberts, but to just have some good clean fun. Roberts posted these rst few letters on the web, and people from all over the globe started asking him to write a book. Too all the people who have pre-ordered this book and nominated me for, Comedy Book of the Year, Roberts said, I want to say thank you. If you would like to purchase the book, Love Letters from Bubba, they are available on-line from, kindle and amazon, or you can pick one up at the Putnam County Courier Journal locat ed at 330 N. Summit S t. in Crescent City. Everyone needs a little Bubba in their life Mike Jones Staff Writer Photo special to the Courier Journal New book from local Travis Roberts Love Letters From Bubba.

International Overdose Awareness DayEvery August 31 is International Overdose Awareness Day (IOAD) it aims to raise awareness of overdose and reduce the stigma of a drug-related death. It began in 2001 in Victoria Australia by Sally J. Finn and Peter Streker who decided to orga nize a local event for those who wished to commemorate a loved one or friend who had passed away. Anyone could wear a ribbon to offer their condolences to those who had suffered overdose. The first year they distributed over 6,000 ribbons throughout the state and further. Since then many community organizations such as hospitals and community health centers in large cities in the US, UK and Australia have held events to raise awareness and commemorate those who have been lost to drug overdose. What Is An Overdose? An overdose means having too much of a drug (or combination of drugs) for your body to be able to cope with. There are a number of signs and symptoms that show someone has overdosed, and these differ with the type of drug used. Depressant Overdose Opioids, benzodiazepines and alcohol are all depressants, which mean they slow the central nervous system, including breathing and heart rate. Too much of any one of these substances on their own or in combination can kill or cause perma nent brain damage. shallow breathing or not breathing at all snoring or gurgling sounds (this can mean that a persons airway is partly blocked) blue lips or fingertips floppy arms and legs no response to stimulus disorientation unarousable (cant be woken up) unconsciousness Alcohol Poisoning/Overdose Alcohol is a depressant and it is all too possible to overdose on it. Acute alcohol poisoning, which is usually a result of binge drinking, is an example. disorientation loss of coordination vomiting seizures irregular or slow breathing (less than eight breaths a minute) blue-tinged or pale skin low body temperature (hypothermia) stupor (being conscious but unresponsive) unconsciousness (passing out) Stimulant Overdose It is possible to overdose on amphetamines such as speed and ice. Amphetamine overdose increases the risk of heart attack, stroke, or seizures. chest pain disorientation/confusion severe headache seizures high temperature (overheating, but not sweating) difficulty breathing agitation and paranoia hallucinations unconsciousness Mixing Drugs Taking more than one kind of drug at a time puts strain on the body and can increase both effect and the risk. What to do if someone is overdosingstay with them and assure them everything will be okay if they appear unconscious, try to get a response from them (e.g.: call their name) If you cant get a response put them in the recovery position and call an ambu lance. Commence first-aid. Emergency operators can give CPR instructions. Keep an eye on them. People can go in and out of consciousness. If stimulants such as amphetamines are thought to be involved, a person may feel hot, anxious or agitated. Try to move them somewhere cooler and quieter. Or try to make the place quieter When To Call An Ambulance People are often reluctant to call an ambulance for fear of police involvement or concern about the cost of a call-out. The police will only attend if there is a fatality or if their presence is requested, for example if the ambulance crew feels threatened. In addition to unconsciousness, call for emergency help when someone is: having a seizure experiencing severe headache experiencing chest pain experiencing breathing difficulties extremely paranoid, agitated and/or confused Government Watch A2 City of Crescent CityCity Commission Meeting, September 11, 7 p.m.CRA Board Meeting,September 11, 7 p.m.Planning & Zoning Meeting, September 14, 6 p.m.City Hall, 3 North Summit Street.

Nonymous Juliette Laurie Editor/Publisher Before you read this article I want you to say out loud, the rst sentence, to the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights. Can do it? Well dont feel too bad because over the last three weeks I asked 100 people to do the same thing, and only one person got it right, 99 people said, We the People. Nineteen of these people were police ofcers. If you think its been raining a lot this past month, well it hasnt been, those are the tears of our forefathers weeping because we have forgotten what this country was founded on. I asked a 26 year old this past week if he knew what the Bill of Rights was, his reply, Who cares, they are just a bunch of words that mean absolutely nothing to me, and we wonder what is wrong with our country. Without the Bill of Rights we are all screwed. The rst amendment to the Bill of Rights is only 44 words and you need to know them, they are the foundation of our freedom as American Citizens. The First Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of, religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or the press: or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. This article is not about memorizing the First Amendment; its about knowing what your rights are under the First Amendment. The First Amendment is only ve parts; let me break it down for you. 1. F reedom of Religion: This simply means, the government cannot make a na tional religion that you have to worship. Under the First Amendment you can start a church as long as its legit. I dont think you can start a church called, The rst Church of Pot Smoking, but under this Amendment, you have the right to try, as long as its within reason and you can convince congress that it is legit. 2. F reedom of Speech: This second part means, you can tell the government they are doing a bad job without the fear of having your head land in a basket. Freedom of speech also allows us to stand on a corner somewhere, with a picture of Obama wearing lipstick, and dressed like a Muslim, and there is nothing he can do. Under this Amendment you can also start your own news organization, pass out pamphlets, start a web-site, etc. 3. F reedom of Press: This amendment means the government cannot control what we read, hear or see. We are free to watch whatever news we want. The First Amendment also allows you to write the editor of this newspaper, and complain about what I write. 4. F reedom of Assembly: I love this one; it means, We the People are free to gather in Political Groups, Religious Groups, or Social Groups, and share our ideas whether it is for, or against the government. It also allows us to do this in public or in private. 5. R ight to Petition: If we feel our government does not have our best interest at heart, then we can send them a letter, petition, fax, or email, telling them to change things, without fear of having our doors kicked in and dragged out of our house in the middle of the night. Since the Bill of Rights was written, the government has been trying to take our rights away. The IRS has been busted targeting religious and political groups. Laws have been past with city ordinances restricting what can be said on our streets, or you have to get a permit. Congress has on its oor at this very moment, a bill that would limit what can be said on the news. The NSA and this adminis tration were busted stealing emails from reporters. Freedom of Assembly, forget about it. Go to any park or downtown with a group of people and watch what hap pen. Within minutes, the cops will show up asking for your permit, if you dont have one, well lets just say theres free room and board at the grey bar motel. Lets not forget your right to petition the government. Obama was sent over ve hundred thousand signatures, on one petition to get Sargent Andrew Tahmooressi released from a Mexican prison, and what has he done about it, improved his golf game. The Bill of Rights is there to protect our personal freedoms, it limits the govern ment powers. If we do not protect our Bill of Rights, We are doomed. Soldiers, men, women, mothers fathers and our children have died protecting our rights to live in a free nation. Its only 44 words, dont just keep them to yourselves, teach them to your children, share them with your friends, but most of all protect them, and know your rights, because once there gone its too late. Everyone has an opinion and this is mine. You might not agree with it, but, Thats How I See It.Know Your Rights Through a Childs EyesIt was good. Ms. Guevara was nice and we made a poster.Riley Arroyo Second Grade Ms. GuevaraIt was good be cause I like it.Jacob Madders KindergartenMs. Zonicle Tell me about your first week back to school.I saw all of my friends in my class.

Not so! You just have to decide which kind of cuisine you are in the mood for, and Ill bet you can find it well done. There was a rumor that one of our favorite dining spots, Caf Bleu, is closed. It was, for a short time, because of health problems and a kitchen fire. But it has reopened, been redecorated, and Chef Roxy is definitely open for fine dining. Right now, she can offer lunch and dinner, Thurs day-Sunday, inside or outside on the beautifully re built deck. We often get the grouper, which she gets from a dealer she knew in Key West. Fresh every week-end, she prepares it either Parmesan breaded, or Francaise, with lemon, or can broil it plain, if de sired. The shrimp dishes are divine, my personal favorite being Mediterranean, with artichoke hearts, olives, and plenty of fresh shrimp, but there are at least three other shrimp preparations. There are other en tres also, but those are our favorites, and they are competitive with any place in Central Florida where we have eaten. The caf is just past the Welaka boat dock, accessi ble by road or water, and open Thursday to Sunday for lunch and dinner. Call Chef Roxy for reservations, if you have a large party, at 386-467-8999. And thats just one place that we really enjoy right here in South Putnam within a 30 mile radius from Crescent City. Id be happy to write about others ev ery week, and wont run out of restaurants any time soon! Patricia Maden Crescent CityDining Out in South Putnam

A4 OUR TO WN Way Back When... 25 years agoAugust 27, 1964 Two fires cause much damage here Firemen worked for two hours on Monday night in an effort to save Bills Tavern, located about three miles south of Crescent City, but the flames had gained too much of a headway before the fire truck got there, and the building was a total loss. Gas leaking from an acetylene tank caught fire Tuesday morning at the office and warehouse of the city natural gas utility, and quickly spread flames through out the building. 50 years ago Years Ago...September 1, 1939 Lime-Avocado Week September 4 to 9 Traditional hospitality of the Old South will greet thirsty trav elers here during the Lime-Avocado Week, September 4 to 9. Friendly folks will urge visitors to sit awhile and drink all the con soling limeade they can hold. A gigantic cask will be erected on the highway, signs will be places on the roadway inviting trav elers to drink up, and the word has been passed to all the neighboring cities that the drinks are on Homestead. 75 years ago 10 years agoAugust 25, 2004 Bob Pugh is a top administrator Bob Pugh, director of Federal Programs for the Putnam County School District, is highly respected in his field.

The Crescent City Jay cees were a vital o rganization in the community in those days and the beach at Lake Stella was one of the pet proj ects of the group si nce the inception of Jaycees in Cres cent City. J aycees Named Number 1 in State Crescent City Jay cees walked off with t op honors at the rst quarter state con ference in Pompano B each Saturday, in cluding the title of N umber 1 club in Florida. Andy Boyd, local Jaycee president and Crescent City turned in a total of 1,005 points toward state competition. Cres cent City tied with Hom estead-South Dade Jaycees for the number 1 club title in overall competition along with winning in their population divi sion. T he local Jaycee group also won the Presidents Award of Honor for the Lake Stella Beach project. Boyd said that last year the top club in the district for the rst quarter polled less than 500 points but competition this year was much stiff er everyone wanted t he number 1 title bad enough to work for it. He said it is the rst time that two clubs have turned in the same amount of points, ending in a tie for rst place. The winner of the Number 1 title will re ceive a trophy, eight f eet tall and four feet wide. Each club is given points for work within their club and com munity.

M asters Funeral Home of Palatka was in charge of arrangements. Im currently teaching through a sermon series called You Asked For It? Over the last six weeks or so Ive asked our church attenders and members to ASK any question they would like and we would answer it from a biblical perspective during our weekly w orship gathering on Sunday mornings. Nothing is off limits and the questions are varied. For instance, we have already answered ques tions such as: W hy is there so much evil and suffering in the world? Why do bad things happen to good peo ple? C an a Christian lose their salvation? Creation vs. Evolu tion? I s it Ok for a Chris tian to drink alcohol? U pcoming questions to be answered are ones like: What and where is heaven? Is it a sin to smoke marijuana? What does God say about suicide? I told you they were var ied! For too long the c hurch has remained si lent on answering real, t ough questions that peo ple have about God and l ife. Although, I do not claim to have all the an swers, I do believe it is the r esponsibility of the local church to answer these types of questions from a biblical perspective. No matter what ques tions you may have about G od and life, THE BIBLE WILL ALWAYS STEER YOU IN THE RIGHT DI RECTION! Its the only s ource of truth that lines up with the reality of the way things really are in our lives and in our world. You can trust the Bible to lead you through lifes journey. 2 Timo thy 3:16-17 says that all s cripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for train ing in righteousness, so t hat the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.

Photos by Travis Roberts Thursday night the Crescent City Junior Senior High School hosted a round robin volleyball tournament between four teams, Crescent City High, Union County High, Taylor High, and Palatka High. In the rst round the Raiders would fall to Union County. Taylor High would beat Union county in the next round. In the third round Taylor would take out Palatka High, but in the nal round it would be all Crescent City, winning two games straight out of three against Palatka High. When I inter viewed Holly Pickens the head coach she said, Im happy with the loss against Union County, the girls played their hearts out. Well I have to agree with her because I was there. Congratulations Raiders Volleyball. Im looking forward to covering this team; they are one tough bunch of young ladies.Raiders Girls Volleyball Photo by Travis RobertsWhen someone catches sight of a pan ther or black bear and r eports it to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Con servation Commission ( FWC), the agencys biologists may use that sighting to help research and manage those species. Already, the publics willingness to report where they see pan thers and black bears i n Florida is having a positive impact on what is known about where these large mammals live and re produce in the state. B ased on two years of online public report ing of panther sight ings and nearly one y ear of online reports of bear sightings, bi ologists know more a bout what areas of Florida provide viable habitat for these spe cies. A t otal of 1,537 Flor ida panther sightings were reported as of June 2014, of which 275 have been veried as panthers based on photos of the animal or its footprints. This includes the rst ver ication of a panther s ighted near the Green Swamp north of In terstate 4 in central F lorida. Primarily, the veried panther sight ings are in southwest F lorida. There also were a total of 2,257 Florida black bear sighting re ports as of June 2014, w ith more than 500 of those reports con taining uploaded pho tographs. Sightings of b ears were reported in 59 of the states 67 counties. The FWC continues collection of panther sightings at MyFWC. com/PantherSight ings, and bear sight ings at MyFWC.com/ B earSightings. Here people can nd infor mation about the an imals, including how t o identify them, what to do or not do if they see one, and a Google map making it easy to pinpoint the sighting location. Someones excite ment about seeing a F lorida panther or black bear may translate into important sci entic information if t hat sighting is report ed to the FWC, said C arol Knox, the FWCs Imperiled Species Management section leader. The FWC is pleased that so many people are making the effort to be citizen sci entists and sharing t heir sightings of pan thers and bears. By d oing so, they are con tributing to conserva tion of Floridas largest l and mammals. Soon, cooler weather will be on the way and more people will be re suming their outdoor p ursuits. We hope people go ing outdoors to hunt, h ike or pursue other recreational activities remember to share their bear sightings with us, particularly if it is a mother bear with cubs, said FWC bear biologist Brian Scheick.

Holy cow, I thought this football season was nev er going to arrive. Fri day night, August 22, t he Raiders took on the Panthers at Pine Ridge High School in Deltona. At first I thought the Panthers would run a close score on the Raid ers, when they caused a R aiders touchback. That thought soon vanished as the Raiders walked up and down the field over the Panthers. By the third quarter the score was Raiders 18-9, then 24-9, and by the end of the fourth quarter the Raiders would win, 46-9. I could go on and on about who did what in this game but since Im limited on space, let me just say, The Raid ers played like a well m aintained machine.

If you would like to check out pictures of the game, you can go to the Putnam County Courier Journal Facebook page. Every week I will post a picture called, Hit of the Week! This weeks Hit of the Week goes to, #14 Dillon Dunnigan who got speared by a Panther. This shot would have knocked out a pro player but not Dunnigan, he just shrugged it off and took the next play in for the score. Dunnigan will receive a poster of this play from the Courier Journal, sponsored by East Palatka Tire and Lube. There will also be one given to the high school. Well, only one thing to say until next week. GO RAIDERS!Food Is Fuel You wouldnt get in your car and expect it to start up and get you where you need to go on an empty tank, yet that is what so many of us expect our bodies to do for us each and every day! We get up every morn ing throw back a cup o f coffee or a soda, rush off to work, at lunch we rush around and maybe grab some thing from a vending m achine or a fast food place, and then when we get home at night we are too tired to fix a proper meal and we throw a frozen dinner in the microwave or do the fast food thing again, or heaven for bid go without eat ing altogether, only to s tart the whole cycle all over the next day! We wonder why our energy is lagging, our skin looks dull, we dont sleep well, and our bowel habits leave everything to be de sired. Our bodies are n ot getting the most basic of nutrients that it needs to survive much less to allow us to thrive and function at our peak. Breakfast Im sure you have all heard its the most important meal of the day, but do you know why? The word itself literally means to Break the fast that we go through while we sleep. A healthy breakfast gives us energy to start our day, improves concen tration and increas es performance in t he classroom or the boardroom. It helps with weight control, it allows us to make better food choices throughout the rest of the day, and if you include lean protein as a part of your breakfast choices, it can help you to stay full lon ger during the day. It i s not hard to make good healthy choices for a quick breakfast and if time is short in the morning, take a few minutes before bed at night to pre pare both breakfast a nd lunch for yourself for the next day. Here are a few healthy sug gestions: A v eggie omelet and a piece of wholewheat toast A whole-wheat En glish muffin with ch eese, egg, and slice of tomato or lean ham Smoothie made with fruit and yo gurt S almon on 1/2 whole-grain bagel with cream cheese Whole-grain cereal with fresh fruit and milk Oatmeal made with milk, raisins and nuts, with 4 ounc es of orange juice Y ogurt and a piece of fresh fruit Yogurt smoothie and breakfast bar Hard-boiled egg and a banana Lunch and Beyond So you eat a good healthy breakfast and get through the morn ing feeling great with a ll kinds of energy and focus you never knew you could have. Now its getting to be time for lunch and your stomach is start ing to let you know, so w hats the plan, you do have a plan, right? Well, if you read my article from last week then you do, but if you missed it, then let me briefly summarize it for you. Protein; meat or beans and rice, may be nut butter, but s ome sort of protein to get you through the afternoon. Then you will need some fruits and veggies, we are still trying to get to that 5+ a day mark, you know. Carbs should be complex so they take longer to di gest and that will give you sustained ener gy. Think whole wheat b read or pasta, whole grain tortilla for sand wich wraps and pita p ockets to stuff. If you want to go low carb to help with weight loss, try using Bibb lettuce as a holder for your sandwich fixings in stead of bread. Think o f the calorie savings! This is a good time to utilize leftovers from the night before. Ei ther pack them into a container to reheat the next day or re-purpose them into a wrap or pita for a whole new meal. One of the very im portant issues I would l ike to address here is the students who participate in extra curricular activities a fter school, espe cially sports. Being p roperly hydrated and properly fueled is so very important. Now of course the coach es know what is ulti mately best for these k ids, but it cant hurt for them to pack an extra snack to take with them for either before or after their practice. The follow ing are some good h ealthy snacks to try: Apple or banana slices and peanut butter Whole-grain crack ers and cheese* C arrot and celery sticks with dressing* C ottage cheese or yogurt with fresh or canned fruit* Energy bars, breakfast bars, or g ranola bars. Crackers and hummus (garbanzo b ean dip)* Trail mix with nuts and dried fruit Whole-grain bread or bagel sandwich (with peanut but ter, turkey, lean r oast beef, or tuna)* *Some components of these snacks may need to be kept cold. Evening So you made it through the day and you are ready for din ner. This is where you c an make or break your day. With some advanced planning on grocery day, this doesnt have to be the worst part of the day for you it can be the best! When you come home from the grocery store, clean your veg gies and store them in z ip lock bags so they are ready at a mo ments notice. With a l ittle planning on the weekend, your work/ school days can go much more smoothly. Look toward things like pre-cooked ro tisserie chickens to m ake quick chicken quesadillas or chicken tacos. Pull the chick en from the bones a nd add your favorite toppings and a salad on the side and you have a meal, all with out heating up your k itchen! You can also use your slow cooker, by prepping the meal in the crock the night before and placing it in the fridge you can pop it in the cooker before you leave in the morning and return that evening to a hot meal all in one dish, ready to go! So, remember, in or der for your body to p erform at its best, we have to fuel it proper ly, rest it sufficiently, a nd give it plenty of water and exercise. Until Next Time, Stay Healthy!

Hospice of Citrus and the Nature Coast Wings Community Education and the Hos pice Foundation of America presents Helping A dolescents Cope With Loss to be held on Tuesday, September 2, from 12 to 3 p.m. at the Wings Community Education Center lo cated at 927 South S.R. 19 in Palatka. T he road from middle school to young adulthood is filled with ongoing challenges. Adolescents are busy discovering themselves and taking their first independent steps as they answer key developmental questions such as: Who am I? How can I be close to oth ers? Where am I going and how am I going to g et there? Illness and loss profoundly influ ence these processes. The death of a family m ember or friend can cause adolescents to withdraw and create obstacles to going for ward in life. Moreover, adolescent encounters w ith loss are likely to be traumatic deaths by accident, suicide, and homicide. This new program explores the ways that healthcare workers, educators, social work ers, counselors, clergy, funeral directors, and o ther professionals can assist adolescents as they cope with loss. It examines real cases from across the country discussed by a panel of national leaders in the field of grief and loss. The audience will have the opportunity to share their own experiences and expertise in a community discussion moderated by Bobby Lafferty, DO, Medical Director of Hos pice of Citrus and the Nature Coast. H elping Adolescents Cope With Loss is offered at no cost and is open to the public. Lunch will be provided for all participants at noon. Three continuing education credits for professionals are available from the Hospice Foundation of America. To make a reserva tion, call Mary Rockefeller at 386-530-4600.

Well wonder no more, Ive found them and theyre all grown up now. Of course Im joking. Its Saturday night and Im driving home with my daughter when my phone rings. My daugh ter answers, Its Josh M cCoury Dad, and he wants to talk to you. Hi Coach. I know its short notice, but a group of people have gotten together and started a few softball teams. We are playing tonight at 6 p.m.; can you come cover the game? Id say it was short notice be cause it was 5:50 p.m. W ell, I just happened to be about five minutes from the Welaka base ball field, so I agreed to g o cover the game. Upon arriving at the field, I noticed that no one was in uniform, but there were about 50 plus people walking around, and I could tell right off the bat that this was no ordinary league. After talking to a few people I learned that these people had gotten together just to have fun, nothing seri ous, just some friendly s oftball games. It seems that Ron, T.J and Dr. Bonnie Harri son from the Putnam F amily Fitness Center in Pomona Park had gotten together, and have now started the South Putnam Softball League. They are look ing for more players if y ou would like to join, but beware, you might just have a good time. With all the sporting events I have covered, Id have to say, this is the best one so far. With a muddy field, and mov ing the bases back a l ittle, these men and women were ready to have some fun. Nor mally during a softball g ame, someone is go ing to get ran over, or p lowed at base, but not with these people, in fact I saw one gentle man slow down when h e was heading for first base because the lady playing that spot had a look in her eyes like, Im about to hit mud city, but instead of this gentleman plowing her over for first base, he stopped and picked up the ball and handed it to her, which of course she obliged him back with a, Tag, youre out, everyone laughed and the game resumed. Over the next couple of hours I would see some crazy things, but all in good fun. As I have said a 100 times at least, I think we live in the greatest commu nity in the U.S.A, and t he reason I say this is because there were people playing from all walks of life, different races and gender, all coming together just to have fun. If you would like to join a team or start your own then contact Bonnie Harrison at the Putnam Family Fitness Center 386-649-8784. I want to Thank Josh for calling me, and also thank the three teams, Gotch Ya, Redemption and the Sons of Pitches, for allowing me to be a part of their night. If you just want to come hang out and watch some crazy softball games, then head over to the Welaka baseball field off 308. Games start at 6 p.m. every Saturday Night. See you there! Travis Roberts Staff Writer travis.pccj@gmail.comSouth Putnam Softball League Black bear curricu lum teaches kids about w ildlife, meets Florida education standards. Giving schoolchildren a chance to learn all about Florida black bears is a great way to teach them about wildlife, while sharpen ing their skills in read ing, math, science and p roblem solving. For that reason, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has updated its Florida Black Bear Curriculum, and put it online for the first time at BlackBearInfo.com The revised Florida Black Bear Curriculum is free, easy for teach ers to use, and meets t he new Florida Stan dards for educational cu rricula. The curriculum of fers 10 lessons on top ics such as The Black B ear Necessities and Oh Where, Oh Where is the Florida Black Bear? and includes hands-on activities such as mapping and role-playing. There are also videos for students to watch such as the FWCs Living with Florida Black Bears. The Florida Black Bear Curriculum takes childrens curiosity about black bears into the classroom, where learning about black bears can improve kids skills in basics like reading, math, science and problem solving, said Sarah Barrett with the FWCs black bear management pro gram. Whenever FWC s taff talks to kids about Florida black bears, the response is over whelmingly positive be cause kids are eager t o learn and ask great questions about bears. With more encounters today between people and bears in Florida than in the recent past, it is increasingly im portant for children to l earn about the states bear population. The Florida Black Bear Curriculum was designed for children in grades 3-8 and has been in use since 1999, when it was created as a joint project of the FWC and Defenders of Wildlife. Florida teachers who register on the Florida Black Bear Curriculum website can gain ac cess to additional in formation, particularly i n regard to how the material fits the Flori da Standards.

US Hwy 17, Crescent City www.cckennel.us386-698-2777 Arrest Log Interlachen: On Monday, August 11, at approxi mately 4:30 p.m. Putnam County Sheriffs Ofce deputies arrested 34 year old Jason William Cly mer at 336 Winton Avenue in Interlachen on an ac tive warrant. The warrant was issued in connec tion with the failure to appear for previous charges of the possession of drug equipment. Upon arriv al at the home deputies were granted permission to search the premises for Clymer by the proper ty owner. Clymer was located hiding in the attic and refused to comply with verbal commands to come down. Eventually Sergeant Tim Frill and Lieutenant Scott Surrency entered the attic to as sist Clymer in coming down. Clymer continued to refuse to comply at which time pepper spray was deployed and Clymer was taken into custody. East Palatka: On Tuesday, August 12, at approx imately 3 p.m. Putnam County Sheriffs deputies were conducting narcotics enforcement patrols in the area of Putnam County Boulevard. Deputies noticed a suspicious white Ford Explorer in front of a residence known for past drug activity. As they approched the area the vehicle suddenly drove off. The vehicle then ran a stop sign causing the deputies to attempt a trafc stop. The driver, later identied as DJuan Antonio Foster, drove into a yard on Youngs Lane, jumped from the vehicle and ed on foot carrying two large bags. As deputies engaged in a spirited foot chase through yards and over fences, they observed Foster throw the bags into the brush in two different areas. The foot pur suit ended when deputies Josue Garriga and Cole Glaser caught up to Foster and took him into cus tody. Palatka: At approximately 10:15 pm on Monday August 18, Patrol deputies and detectives with the Putnam County Sheriffs Ofce Major Crimes Unit responded to Alhambra mobile home park, 3801 St Johns Avenue, Lot 53 in Palatka in response to the report of a person being shot. A 27 year old male victim said that an unknown person or persons came to his door and shot him with an unknown type of weapon. The victim suffered a gunshot wound to his right shoulder and one to his right hip. He was transported to Putnam Community Medical Center and then airlifted to Shands with what are believed to be non life threatening injuries. Interlachen: On Monday, August 18, Putnam County Sheriffs Ofce deputies responded to 113 Cypress Drive in Interlachen in reference to a theft call. The victim, 33 year old Daniel Wesley Dean, said his pants, his wallet, and his prescription medication had been stolen. Dean said his ex-wife, Kristin Brubaker had picked him up and taken him to her residence at 113 Cypress and they had proceeded to take a shower together. Dean said Brubaker nished showering before him and when he exited the shower, his pants, his wallet, his medication and his ex-wife were gone. Dean immediately suspected Brubaker and her new boyfriend, Shawn Eric Miles, of stealing his property. The following day, on August 19, 2014 Dean called the Sheriffs Ofce to report that he believed Brubaker and Miles to be at 102 Tiny Avenue in Interlachen. Deputies responded to that address to conduct a follow-up investigation of the theft from the previous day. On arrival they made contact with Kristin Brubaker, Shawn Miles and Patrick Phillips as they were attempting to leave the residence in a white Isuzu SUV. During the course of the investigation, Deans wallet and pills of the type stolen from him were located in the vehicle along with 6.6 grams of liquid Oxycodone, three hypodermic needles and three spoons. Bostwick: On Saturday, August 16, at approximately 5:30 p.m. Putnam County Sheriffs Deputy James Heath conducted a trafc stop on a blue Ford Courier he observed traveling on State Road 17 with an expired license plate. It was determined the driver, 49 year old Johnny Whitaker Tilton, had a suspended drivers license and a driving history that included six previous suspensions and three prior convictions for driving with a suspended license. Further investigation revealed that Tilton also had an active warrant out of Clay County for manufacturing methamphetamine. Tilton was placed under arrest for the Clay County warrant. During a subsequent search of the vehicle, an active clandestine methamphetamine lab was located in the trunk. The Putnam County Sheriffs Ofce Meth Lab Team responded to the scene to safely neutralize the one pot lab.
