Floridians will save ap proximately $17 to $25 w hen renewing their registrations, depend ing on the size of vehi cle after September 1. T he fee reductions were proposed by Governor Scott earlier this year as part of the Its Your Money Tax Cut Budget, and were approved by the Florida Legislature during the 2014 legis lative session. While t he reductions will save Floridians millions of dollars each year, it will not affect the level of service provided by the Department of High way Safety and Motor Ve hicles. Governor Scott said, This year, we set out to cut many taxes and fees on Florida families, and starting next week we are rolling back many of the 2009 tax increases on annual motor vehicle registra tions. This fee cut will r esult in an annual savings of about $25 per typical motor vehi cle. Families deserve to k eep more of their hard earned money, and we will now be able to save Floridians $400 mil lion, because its their m oney! The reduction in ve hicle registration fees w ill benet both indi viduals, as well as the F lorida business com munity, said DHSMV E xecutive Director Ter ry L. Rhodes. There a re more than 14 mil lion registered vehicles h ere in Florida that are covered by these fee reductions and that is a lot of savings for the people of Florida. The following are ex amples of the savings o n vehicle registration fees as a result of the reductions. Below is the type of vehicle followed by the reduction in fees. Motorcycles $17.05 Autos/Trucks under 2,500 lbs $18.55 Autos/Trucks between 2,500-3,500 lb s $21.55 Autos/Truck more than 3,500 lbs $25.05Clay Electric is warn ing its commercial ac counts and business owners to be aware of scams being attempt ed by persons who demand immediate payment of delinquent bills. Within the past week, a business own er in Alachua Coun ty was scammed by someone claiming that an immediate payment of a power bill was re quired or the account would be shut off. The caller told the business owner the bill could be paid using a Green Dot Mon eyPaks payment card. Green Dot MoneyPak cards are reloadable debit cards, available at many locations, and can be used to pay phone, cable, or credit card bills. Scammers use the MoneyPak cards because theyre more convenient than a money wire and dif cult to trace. If youre a business owner and someone calls claiming theyre with the power com pany and they need payment of a delin quent bill today, that is a big red ag, said Clay Electrics Bruce McHollan, director of the co-ops Information and Communication Technology Depart ment. If you are at all suspicious of someone claiming theyre with the power company and payment must be made today, hang up and call Clay Elec tric at 800-224-4917, McHollan said. There have been other recent scam at tempts directed at businesses in Clay, Putnam and Lake counties. Clay Elec tric encourages the businesses it serves to be very suspicious of anyone who calls and claims he or she rep resents the co-op and wants to be paid for an overdue bill. The coop erative does not collect past due amounts in this manner. A remind er letter is sent and an automated remind er call is placed when bills are past due. Members with resi dential accounts have also been subject to scam attempts during the past year that in volved emails. Clay Electric does not send emails that threaten or require immediate ac tion to provide person al information. We urge our members to ignore suspicious re quests for personal information such as bank account num bers, credit card num bers, user names and passwords, or Social Security numbers, said Derick Thomas, director of the co-ops Member & Public Re lations Department. We ask our members to delete all suspicious emails that require immediate action to verify or provide per sonal information. If a member has an overdue bill, he or she will likely receive a call from our automated phone messaging sys tem as a reminder to call the cooperative to arrange payment. Theyll also receive a courtesy notice in the mail, Thomas said. Members should not share condential per sonal information over the phone.

Childhood Cancer Awareness Month Signed into Proclamation in 1990 by President George H.W. Bush, October was named Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Then on May 23, 2008, the senate passed the Allard-Clinton National Childhood Cancer Awareness Day Resolution making September 13, 2008 the first National Childhood Cancer Awareness Day. The month was moved to September in order to coincide with the Day. The goal of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is to spotlight the types of can cer that largely affect children, survivorship issues, and importantly to help fundraise for research and family support. The American Childhood Cancer Or ganization (ACCO) helps to promote the day and month by providing fundraising ideas, information to be active with an event, and supplies. For ideas and participation information please go to https://acco.org/Awarenes sAdvocacy/Awareness/ChildhoodCancerAwarenessMonth.aspx. Recovery Month Recovery Month promotes the benefits of prevention, treatment, and recovery for mental and substance use disorders, celebrates people in recovery, recognizes the contributions of treatment and service providers, and promotes the message that recovery in all its forms is possible. Recovery Month spreads the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, that prevention works, treat ment is effective and people can and do recover. It is in its 25th year, and the theme for this year is Join the Voices for Recovery: Speak Up, Reach Out, it encourages people to openly speak up about mental and substance use disorders. It recognizes the reality of recovery, and promotes ways individuals can use to recognize issues and reach out for help.

Nonymous Juliette Laurie Editor/Publisher When it comes to your rights, dont be an idiot or stupid. In college I had a pro fessor say, An idiot is someone who doesnt know the answer. A stupid person is one that knows the answer, but refuses to act on it. I hope that by teaching you the basic principles of our constitution, and the Bill of Rights, you wont be stupid or an idiot. In last weeks article I told you about the First Amendment, lets recap. The First Amendment guarantees us the right to, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, freedom to peaceably assemble, and freedom to petition our government. You might say, Im not sure what the Constitution and Bill of Rights are all about? Let me respond by saying this, Do not be embarrassed by you lack of knowledge, its not your fault. Since the beginning of our country, our school sys tems and government have gotten away from teaching the real constitution. Let me break it down as simply as I can. Our forefathers came to this country to escape several things. Most people think it was because of overtaxing, and while this is true, their main goal was to live in a free world. Just before the Red Coats came to invade the U.S, the British Gov ernment placed restrictions on musket balls and gun powder being delivered to this country. Their plan was to make it an easy takeover when they arrived. That didnt happen! By the time the Red Coats hit our soil, these young Americans had Militia groups set up in almost every town. These Militia groups were just your average farmers and towns people, who wanted to remain free, to worship their God, and live off the land without the interference of a big government taxing them or telling them how to live. I will elaborate more on the Militia groups as I get deeper into this part of the Constitution, and how it plays a vital role even in todays society. Before George Washington took ofce, the people of the United States were ask ing, Who is going to be our next King? During this time period our founding fathers made the choice to eliminate the king title, and to draft a constitution that would make it impossible for the government to run our lives. Our Constitution is basically two parts, The Articles and Amendments. There are 7 Articles and 27 Amendments to our Constitution. The Amendments are placed where something has been changed, added or deleted. The First 10 Amendments are called, The Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights, was drafted after the rst 7 Articles were written. The Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land, period! All other state regulations, codes, executive orders, etc are secondary to our constitution. Look it up yourself, Article 6. In short, Our Founding Fathers wanted to make sure that, We the people, have rights that the government, state or federal could never take away. This group of men drafted the constitution so that, We the people would never be forced to give up our guns or our freedoms. That the government would never be able to force us to buy something we do not want, like health care. That we as a people would never be over taxed, that our privacy would be protected, that our voice could nev er be silenced, etc Next week I will explain the Second Amendment, and how all you gun haters have no rights to lobby your gun restrictions. I will show you how the state, government, and congress violate our second Amendment right by not having a state militia, and how gun free zones are totally illegal according to 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, and our forefathers saw it!The Constitution is Simple Through a Childs EyesPlay football.

There is no lack of Mexican food in our area, but we love to go for a late breakfast or brunch at El Amigo in Crescent City. Chef Irma Gomez makes the best heuvos rancheros, bar none, that I have had in a lifetime of trying them, from Mexico to all corners of the U.S. They are two perfectly cook eggs, your choice how, on top of homemade slightly crunchy torti llas, with a light salsa surrounded by the obligatory refried beans and topped with still slightly crisp sauted onions. I could eat them 7 days a week. Another delicious dish, aside from all the usuals you might expect, is her camarones coket, shrimp cocktail, which she serves quite attractively, and deliciously cold, with lots of ci lantro, and a light salsa. Chef Irma makes her own flan too. Which is hard to resist even when you dont need dessert, creamy and rich in its little pool of caramel. This is definitely not just another Mexican restaurant, right in Crescent City on the East side of Highway 17, two blocks south of the traffic light. El Amigo is open 9-5 Mon day, Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday, and 9-7 on Friday and Saturday. You can eat inside the colorful dining room or sit outside under the gaily flapping colorful flags. Daily specials run $6.95 and other dishes are competitive with other local spots. Almost like a trip to Old Mexico! Patricia Maden Crescent CityDining Out in South Putnam Dear Editor: Come Election time, I look forward to voting, I drive to the polls on Election Day to vote. I really look forward to getting my sticker that shows I voted, I like to wear it for a couple of days to show my Patriotism, but this time I got a sticker with a bridge on it. Did I just vote for a new bridge? Wheres my flag, my red, white, and blue? Wheres the Supervisor of Elections? Patriotism? Wheres my sticker showing my patriotism and red, white, and blue? James Brantley Crescent CityWheres My Flag, My Red, White, Blue? Dear Editor: This letter is directed to the person who burglarized our home in May of this year. You stole our new computer, my husbands blue guitar, and a number of pieces of jewelry. You used some method of controlling our dog and she has not been he same since. You scared one of our cats into hiding for a week. This alone would be enough to warrant severe punishment in my opinion. One of the rings you stole was a pair that my husband had custom-made with our names engraved around the outside of the band. He presented that to me as a wedding gift. There is no other like it in the entire world. Now he wears his ring, but I cant wear mine because you have surely had it melted down for the value of the gold. Another of the rings was presented to me, again by my husband, upon my col lege graduation in 1998, exactly thirty years after having graduated from high school. I was valedictorian for the class of 1998 at Northwood University and have never been more proud of anything in my life as I was to have finally earned that degree. My graduation ring was a symbol of all the hard work and effort I had expended and I wore it with great joy. The old, burgundy ring box you found with a small diamond ring in it, was the box that contained my husbands grandmothers ring, dated September 21, 1912. Thank goodness I was wearing that ring or you would have melted it down too. That box and the wedding band were to be handed down to our daughter upon my death. She will get the wedding ring, but she will not get the box that it should have been in. The other few pieces of jewelry you stole were equally sentimental, each with their own special place in my heart, each with their own story to tell. Those rings had been promised to nieces that have been very close to me over the years. They will never be able to wear my rings and think of me and know that someone loved them very much. If you had some to me and asked for money or help in some form, I would have helped you to the best of my ability. I am not rich, but I have always believed in doing what I could for friends and neighbors, as do many people in this commu nity. What a terrible path you have chosen for yourself. How painfully sad that this is nothing more than an illegal, immoral attempt on your part to get something you neither earned nor deserved. Did you use the money for drugs? Or did you buy a new smart phone? Did you boast to your friends about the haul you made and laugh over it? Im sure you have had no guilt or remorse over your despicable behavior and have very likely not given it another thought. On to the next victim! I sincerely hope that you have the occasion to actually read this letter. If not, Im sure that other targets of your crimes know exactly how I feel. If only you could be made to understand the full effects of what you do to people you steal from, would you reconsider your actions? Should you choose to visit us again in the future, we have camera and security in place now that will not only give us your location, but pictures of you in action. Just be aware that, in this world, things have a strange way of coming full circle. You dont need to worry about whether or not youll receive your just rewards. You just need to worry about when it will happen and what way it will manifest itself. God bless you when it comes. Myra Lord Crescent CitySentimental Jewelry Stolen in Burglary

The Melrose Pub lic Library is proud to display, in the atrium, paintings of local art ist, Harimandir Khal sa. She started paint ing when she was five years old. Her parents gave her art supplies and she was alone much of the time, giv ing her ample opportu nities to paint whatever she wanted. There are larger piec es in the atrium called mandalas, painted on canvas. Their motivat ing concept is about the inner journey and dis covery. Khalsa started mandalas about five years ago with research into da Vincis Vitruvi an Man. This search led her to another Re naissance thinker, Fi bonacci, and his golden number sequence and spirals. She incorpo rates Fibonaccis pat terns into her manda las by drawing a series of concentric circles, bisecting them, con necting the lines, and coloring in various pat terns and colors.

As yet the critter has not been introduced to his new duties, but it is planned to train him. He will go with the patrolman on duty each night as he makes his rounds check ing doors in the business area. 50 years ago Years Ago...September 8, 1939 Chain Stores were Established in 200 B.C. The system of chain stores was established by a Chinese merchant 200 year before Christ was born. The first modern day chain stores were organized by the Mitsui family in Japan in 1934, and this chain of apothecary shops is today still a powerful organization in the drug business. 75 years ago 10 years agoSeptember 1, 2004 Hot Day for a Hot Election Temperatures near 100 degrees made for a hot day for the candidates run ning in yesterdays Primary Election. From county commissioner to school board to sheriff, the field of candidate vying for office has made this one of the busiest campaign seasons in recent memory. 5 years agoSeptember 2, 2009 City Police Search ing for Thief The Crescent City Police Department is asking the public to help them identify the man in the grainy photo taken from a surveillance camera at Mercantile Bank. The man is a suspect in a burglary that occurred in July. August 30, 1989 New School Opens From its red brick bell tower to its forestwithin-the-walls, San Mateos new elemen tary school, Browning-Pearce Elementary School, is brimming with welcome for the 150 plus kids wholl make the northward trek from Welaka and Satsuma for the rst time this week. Compiled from the Crescent City News, Crescent City Journal, Crescent City Courier Journal, Putnam County Courier Journal and other local news sources. From the pages of the Courier Journal of July 24, 1974, an interesting piece of local trivia. Mr. Radtke passed away recently. Old Newspapers Yield Countys Oldest Re corded License Plate Rummaging through old newspapers nor mally yields nothing more than yesterdays headlines or an occa sional hibernating in sect. But for Bill Radt ke of Crescent City, a stack of old newsprint has produced what appears to be the old est license plate in Putnam County. The plate, dark blue with white lettering, is made of porcelain and dated for the year 1915. The large nu merals, 69, in the cen ter are bordered on the left by the date and on the right by the words private use. A sec tion of the porcelain on one end of the plate has been chipped over the years but the let tering is still clearly visible. Radtke discovered the plate among some old newspapers which he was gathering for use as liners for fern crates. The plate, ac cording to Radtke, slipped from between the folds of a newspa per page. Upon making the discovery, Radtke checked with tax col lector Mike Noone in Palatka to determine the worth of his nd. Noone said his records indicate porcelain plates were used but that county records go back only to the year 1918. Noones records show this type plate was used during the years 1918-1921. He told Radtke that as far as his ofce can determine, the 1915 plate is the oldest on record in the coun ty. Radtke said hes gotten several offers to purchase the plate but says as far as hes concerned, the plate is a priceless piece of county history which hell hold on to.

Math may not sound like fun to everyone, but there is fun to be had when learning mathe matics. If you can convince kids of that basic principle, getting them to focus in school and do well on their tests will be the easy part. Af ter all some of todays most downloaded apps involve math -maybe youve heard of the pop ular app, 2048. Nearly three-fths of U.S middle school stu dents believe that math will be important to their future, according to a recent survey con ducted by the Raythe on Group, However, the same study found that physical education was the overwhelming choice for childrens favorite subject. With that in mind, here are several ways to jazz up math for your children so they develop an afnity for the subject from an early age: Personalized Problems Math touches every thing that we do in life, which makes it all the more important to master. Luckily, it also makes it easy to tailor a lesson plan to suit a childs interests. You can make math problems less of a prob lem by substituting the names, places and activities referenced in their homework with things your child cares about. Is your child on a sports team? Teach him or her how to analyze the sta tistics that came out of the latest game. Does your child love movies? Make up math problems about the latest box ofce numbers. The possi bilities are endless. Stylish Tools Students want to have the freedom to embrace their own sense of per sonal style. Fortunately, opportunities for self-expression can even be found in math class. Most portable electron ics today come in a vari ety of colors, so why not calculators too? Take school supplies to the next level with tools like Casios new line of sci entic and graphing cal culators, which come in pink, black, blue, gray and white. Their easy to use, durable calcu lators offer high-resolution screens, enhanced technological features and icon based menus. More information can be found at www.CasioEducation.com. Extra Credit Make sure your kids know just how important their success in math class is, by rewarding their good grades and extra time spent learning. Some might call it bribery, but you can think of it as posi tive reinforcement. And remember, extra time spent with math doesnt have to be boring. To get kids motivated, look for fun supplemental lessons on the Internet as well as computer games that employ math skills. Some school subjects, for some children, will need a bit of creative packaging to motivate them. Whether your kids struggle with math or are natural whizzes, take steps to make the subject more personal and more fun.Make Math More Fun

Being a pastor I will be the first to tell you if you are not a Christian, you dont know what your missing. I will also be the first to tell you that you should become a Chris tian immediately. For more on becoming a Christian read Romans 10:9 it says; if you con fess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord, and you believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you will be saved. So, becoming a Chris tian is a great place to start, but that is exactly what it is a fresh new start. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says; if any man is in Christ, he is a new crea ture: his old life is passed away; and all things have become new. Back to my point, while becoming a Christian is a good decision for any one, it is definitely not the end of all your prob lems. As a matter of fact we find many verses in the Bible that talk of our sufferings as well as what Christ Himself suf fered for us. David even said in Psalms 34:19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous.......So, are you wondering yet what I meant when I said I have the answer to all your problems? I have learned through reading Gods Word as well as years of person al experience, that you can find everything you need in one place. Where is this place that I am talking about? In Gods presence!!! In Psalms 91 we read, He that dwells in the se cret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the al mighty. Verse 2 David says, I will say of The Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust. That being said, how do we get into His presence? We do this through Praise and Worship. In Psalms 22:3 we learn that God inhabits the Praise of His people. Once He is inhab iting our praise we are in His presence. You might ask, what kind of things can we find in His presence? I believe that in the pres ence of God is a realm that is so Holy nothing can exist that is not sat urated in His holiness. Our church has seen many miracles since we have began to live by the premise that Everything that we lack is found in Gods presence and then we enter His presence with our praise to. We have seen infertility healed on two occasions (my wife and I was one of these), unexplained lumps that have disap peared, financial mira cles, addictions broken, marriages restored, jobs and promotions at jobs, and many have been bap tized in the Holy Ghost. There is nothing that you can face that God does not have the answer for. There is nothing you will ever go through that God can not show you the way. To gain the knowl edge and tools you will need to navigate through this life you have to get good at following directions. Time spent with the Al mighty is a trait that was taught to us by many people in the Bible and even Christ Himself. Yet, some how we seem to be too busy and distracted to give The Lord our at tention. I dare you to become accountable to a fel low believer. I challenge you to spend more time thinking about others, praying, reading your Bi ble, and going to church. I implore you to spend time in Gods presence. Praise Him for He is worthy. Worship Him with everything that is inside you. Give Him your troubles and watch Him defeat every foe, pay every bill, and cleanse every disease. If you need me to pray with you I will be glad too. If you need to be trained on how to enter Gods presence or how to live there, please reach out to me. Lastly, if you see a fel low brother or sister struggling along ask them this question; Are you in there? Explain to them that in Gods presence they will find what they need. We can all help each other along with this simple remind er question, ARE YOU IN THERE? CHURcCH A5 = Crescent City = First Baptist Church of Crescent City . ...... 386-698-1578 101 S.

It was Friday around 4:30 p.m. Im smoking ribs at the Winn-Dixie in Cres cent City when all of t he sudden the sky opens up and starts dumping rain like crazy, and it wasnt letting up anytime soon. For a moment I expected to see ani mals walking two by t wo down the road. After leaving Winn-Dixie I headed for the Crescent City High School to cov er the Raiders game, ab out a mile from the school the rain stopped. In my book there is nothing bet ter than watching a h igh school football game played on a rain soaked field. From the toss of the coin, the Raid ers would dominate o ver the All Saints Academy. Yes, for two weeks in a row the Raiders would run the score up on their opposing team. At half time the Crescent City High school would honor several groups for their support to the football team, the Putnam County Cou rier Journal was one o f those groups. By the end of the game it would be Raiders: 54, All Saints Academy: 6. Next week, Friday, September 5, is an away game against Matanzas High. Im not sure at this time if there will be a fan bus going to the game, but as soon as I know, I will post it on the Putnam County Courier Jour nal F acebook page. If you would like to keep up with the games as they are happening you can also go to our Face book page, where we w ill post the scores and plays as they happen. Also, I built an album page with actions shots of our Raiders that can be downloaded. My Hit of the week, picture goes to #8, Dadrian El lis. Ellis seemed to b e unstoppable as he plowed through the All Saints line, knocking four play ers to the turf, and t hen literally run ning across one of t heir players. I want to thank the All Saints Academy for playing our Raiders. These young men might not have won the game, but they played their hearts out. The Raiders next home game will be on Friday, Septem ber 12, against Hal ifax Academy. On t hat night the high school will have a, Punt, Pass and Kick night. This contest will start at 5 p.m. and the con test winner will be a nnounced at halftime, go warm up those arms and legs. Well, theres only one thing left to say, Go Raiders!Coconut OilPart I In a previous article I wrote about the ben efits of coconut in all i ts forms. This time it is just the coconut oil that I am bringing to you. There are so many uses for coco nut oil, from cook ing, to health and b eauty, to pet care, and many more! This week I will address the health benefits of adding it to your diet and how to buy the best kind for your health and your bud get. It s Origins The oil is pressed from the meat of ma ture coconuts by a c ouple of different processes resulting in the product sold in the market today. This oil is very sen sitive to temperature a nd can fluctuate be tween a liquid and a s olid state depending on the room tempera ture in which it is s tored. This does not affect its quality or usability. It is, in fact, the most useful and versatile of all oils. Health Benefits One of the main beneficial compo nents in coconut oil is lauric acid. The body converts lauric acid into monolaurin which helps the body to deal with viral in fections (herpes, in fluenza, cytomegalo virus, and even HIV) a nd bacteria (such as listeria, helicobacter pylori, and harm ful protozoa such as g iardia lamblia) that causes disease in the body. In addition to the lauric acid it also contains linoleic acid, oleic acid, Vitamin E, Vitamin K and min erals such as iron. C oconut oil is very beneficial for the heart. Lauric acid helps prevent vari ous heart problems l ike high cholesterol and high blood pres sure. The saturated f ats in coconut oil are not harmful as those found in vegetable oils. Coconut oil does not increase LDL lev els, and it reduces t he incidence of inju ry and damage to ar teries helping prevent a therosclerosis. It contains short and medium-chain fatty acids that help in taking off exces sive weight. Coconut o il is often used by athletes and those who are dieting; the reason being that coconut oil contains fewer calories than other oils, its fat con tent is easily convert ed into energy, and i t does not lead to accumulation of fat in the heart and ar teries. Coconut oil h elps boost energy and endurance, and enhances athletic performance. It strengthens the immune system due to the antimicrobi al lipids, lauric acid, c apric acid and ca prylic acid which h ave antifungal, antibacterial and anti viral properties. Pre liminary research h as shown an indi cation of the effect of c oconut oil on reduc ing the viral load of H IV patients. Coconut oil helps improve the digestive system and prevents various stomach and digestion-relat ed problems includ ing Irritable Bowel S yndrome. The sat urated fats (lauric a cid, capric acid and caprylic acid) in co conut oil have anti microbial properties w hich help with var ious bacteria, fungi, a nd parasites that can cause indiges tion. Coconut oil also h elps in the absorp tion of other nutri ents such as vita mins, minerals and a mino acids. Coconut oil has been shown to prevent and even cure Candida, also known as Sys temic Candidiasis. It is a d isease caused from excessive and uncontrolled growth of yeast called Can dida Albicans in the s tomach. Candida in fections can be pres ent both internally a nd externally and can include infection in the genitals, uri nary tract and blad der, stomach & intes tines, ear, nose and t hroat, itchy and dry skin, inflammations in internal organs and skin, patch ing & peeling off of s kin (particularly in scalp), digestive and excretory disorders and problems with your hair and nails. Using coconut oil ex ternally on a candi da infection of the s kin has been shown to completely resolve the problem. Taking Coconut oil internal ly has been shown t o cure Candida in fections and since i t works gradually there is a decrease in the side effects felt when the body is rid ding itself of a toxin. C apric acid is a medium chain fatty acid a nd the same fatty acid present in breast milk. The same way it protects the baby from bacterial, viral and fungal infections, it reacts with certain enzymes secreted by other bacteria, which then convert it into a powerful antimicro bial agent, monocap rin. This is what kills t he Candida. It has long been thought that coconut oil was beneficial in the treatment of Alz heimers, but there w as no clinical research to back that u p. Now in a clini cal trial conducted at t he USF Health Byrd Alzheimers Institute, t here is new evidence to show that the use of coconut oil in early stages of Alzheimers might show some promise in, at least, slowing the diseases progression. There is strong evidence that one of the main con tributing factors for A lzheimers disease is a diet too low in fats and excessive phar maceutical drugs. U sing coconut oil helps the body to re place the cholesterol t hat the brain needs to function properly leading to improved symptoms in Alzhei mer patients. The re search is new, but s hows great promise. Selecting the Right Coconut Oil Buying coconut oil can be confusing; there are many dif ferent kinds to choose f rom. There is pure coconut oil, organic coconut oil, virgin co conut oil, organic vir gin coconut oil and e xtra virgin coconut oil. The following is a table that might be helpful in decipher ing all the labels. U ses Type to buy CO= Coconut Oil Cooking Pure CO, Virgin CO, Virgin Organic Weight Loss Vir gin CO, Organic CO As a Carrier Oil Virgin CO, Organic CO Good Health Vir gin CO, Organic CO M assaging Pure CO, Virgin CO, Virgin Organic CO Hair Pure CO, Virgin CO, Virgin Organic CO Medicinal uses Virgin CO, Virgin Organic CO Most of the best types are available at health food stores or online. Be very care ful of the coconut oils t hat are sold in the baking section of the regular grocery store as those are usual ly refined, meaning t hey have been pro cessed and bleached t o the point that they no longer contain the valuable parts of the oil that you de sire for good health b enefits. My favor ite brand is Kelapo h ttp://www.kelapo. com/ although there are many other good ones out there. Next week I will tell you about all the oth er wonderful uses for C oconut Oil.
