On July 21, 2017 the Palatka Police Department (PPC) was contacted by the Department of Children and Family Services (DCF) concerning potential child sexual abuse that occurred at a local park in 2013.

I went to the high school orchestra concert and visited with people before it started. But when the lights dimmed, we all moved to our seats and quieted down. The youth came filing in, and the audience applauded. As the young musicians moved to their designated chairs, I smiled as I saw who the senior boy was who took the concertmaster chair. Nathan was a big, muscular boy who looked like he should have been a linebacker for a football team, not playing violin in an orchestra. But Nathans orchestra story started many years earlier. He was always a big boy for his age, and everyone expected him to play football. The school had one of the best teams in the state, having won the state championship many times. Those on the football team were quite popular in the school. So when Nathan got into fifth grade, everyone was surprised when he didnt try out for football. That was when the teasing started. Most of it was in fun, but some of it was downright mean. It continued to the point that he finally decided to join one of the teams. And because of his size, he was fairly good, but he wasnt as outstanding as many people thought he should be. Nathans mother was the secretary in our department. In high school, I had been an all-conference and all-state football lineman, so Nathans mother thought it would be good to have him talk to me. She felt that maybe I could motivate him. But when he came to me, I could sense something was wrong. Do you like football? I asked. He shrugged. Its okay. Just okay? He shrugged again, and we started to talk. I learned that Nathan was not really interested in football. His real love was music; classical music, no less. Have you told your mother? I asked. He shook his head. Everyone just expects me to play football. I think she would understand, I said. Everyone expected my children to do sports. But when they tried, their hearts werent in it. If your heart isnt in it, you will never excel. You need to do what you love to do, not what others tell you that you should do. For the next few days, our department secretary was not her jovial self, and I wondered if I had been wrong in what I said. She wouldnt say what was bothering her, but we could all tell something was on her mind. It was about this time that one of my colleagues came to my office. His wife was the orchestra teacher at the middle school. He told me he wanted to talk about Nathan. Daris, he said, I dont know if you know, but Nathan wants to play violin in the orchestra. But since his mother is a single parent, she doesnt have the money to get him a violin. Would you consider donating? I smiled. Gladly. There were only twelve members of our department, but we collected enough money to buy Nathan a high-quality, professional violin. A few days later, our department members gathered in the department foyer, and my colleague presented the beautiful instrument to Nathans mother. She cried openly as she accepted the gift for her son. And she was again her jovial self. Nathan loved orchestra, and he excelled. It wasnt long before he was the lead violinist. Though some people still teased him about not playing football, his musical talent was soon recognized, and the teasing faded away. So now, as I watched Nathan play, including a phenomenal solo, I thought of how important it is to do the thing you love the most. But I also thought about how grateful I was for the good people I worked with who were willing to support a young man when he needed it most.

It was on March 25, 1863, when the first Medals of Honor were presented. Secretary of War, Edwin Stanton presented Medals of Honor (Army) to six members of Andrews Raiders for their volunteering and participation during an American Civil War raid in April of 1862. Created in 1861, the Medal of Honor is the United States of Americas highest military honor. It is awarded only to US military personnel, by the President of the United States in the name of Congress, for personal acts of valor above and beyond the call of duty. There are three versions of the Medal of Honor; one for the Army, one for the Navy and one for the Air Force, with personnel of the Marine Corps and the Coast Guard receiving the Navy version. Since its creation, there have been 3,517 Medals of Honor awarded to the countrys soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and coast guardsmen. In 1990, Congress designated March 25 annually as National Medal of Honor Day. Due to its prestige and status, the Medal of Honor is afforded special protection under U.S. law against any unauthorized adornment, sale, or manufacture, which includes any associated ribbon or badge. The U.S. Navy first established the Medal of Honor on December 21, 1861. The U.S. Army established it on July 12, 1862. The U.S. Air Force established the medal on April 14, 1965. The last Medal of Honor was awarded on October 23, 2017. There have been 621 posthumous awards. The Putnam County Courier Journal welcomes your letters to the Editor.

Summit St., Crescent City, FL 32112 or FAX to 386-698-1994, or E-mail to pccjnews@gmail.com Letters to the Editor The ViolinDaris Howard Where Did that Saying Come From?Save by the Bell There is a widespread notion that saved by the bell originated as an expression that relates to people being buried alive. The idea was that, if someone were comatose and mistakenly pronounced dead and interred, they could, if they later revived, ring a bell that was attached to the coffin and be saved. The idea is certainly plausible as the fear of being buried alive was and is real. Several prominent people expressed this fear when close to death themselves: All I desire for my own burial is not to be buried alive. Lord Chesterfield, 1769. Have me decently buried, but do not let my body be put into a vault in less than two days after I am dead. deathbed request of George Washington. Swear to make them cut me open, so that I wont be buried alive.Frederic Chopins last words. Just as real were the devices themselves, several of which were patented in England and in the USA. These were known as safety coffins and designs were registered in the 19th century and up to as late as 1955; for example: The Improved Burial Case. Patent No. 81,437 Franz Vester, Newark, New Jersey. August 25, 1868. As well as a handy bell, Vesters device had the novel enhancement of a glass screen to view the coffins occupant. Presumably the mourners could wave to the deceased and, if he waved back, they knew they were on to something. Theres no evidence to show that anyone was ever saved by these coffins or even that they were ever put to use, and theres a similar lack of evidence of the phrase saved by the bell ever being used in that sense prior to it having been used in other contexts. In fact, the expression is boxing slang and it came into being in the latter half of the 19th century. A boxer who is in danger of losing a bout can be saved from defeat by the respite signaled by bell that marks the end of a round. The earliest reference to this that I can find is in the Massachusetts newspaper The Fitchburg Daily Sentinel, February 1893: Martin Flaherty defeated Bobby Burns in 32 rounds by a complete knockout. Half a dozen times Flaherty was saved by the bell in the earlier rounds. From the Phase Finder: http://www. phrases.org.uk/. Where Where Where Did that Did that Did that Did that Did that Saying Saying Saying Come Come From? From? From? Dear Editor: The school shooter solution should center on the under 10 minutes the campus has to stop a shooter. The lethal illusion that the feds, local cops or child services is the real game changer must end. The off campus forces will continue to fail. Twenty years since Columbine and not one solid state security model? Shame on all School Boards and State Departments of Education. Each state should produce School Security Models (with some arming) based upon school size. No state funds should be given until your school picks one and submits an annual report on its status for that school campus. Why trust the Feds that have botched every school shooting? This is not a federal problem and they should butt out except for a new teen database to enter severe mental illness profiles. Gun control is a distraction from all those inept guilty enablers of this mass murder. The campus has under 10 minutes. The campus needs to change NOW.

The club is the first womans club in Florida to own its own clubhouse. Everyone loved the new look that was completed last summer. Seven or eight of the members painted the brown paneling a soft grey with white trim. Its beautiful. Molly Morris was the coordinator for the project. Visitors from other clubs were guests.

Anthony here again for Troop 957. We are sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and we have lots of fun in our scout Troop 957 and Pack 957. We got to meet some of the scouts from our Scoutmasters Wyo ming Troop this past week. He helped two scout troops in the Bridger Valley in Wy oming. Bert and Nick are Eagle scouts from one Troop and Isaac is a Life scout from Troop 88, a troop sponsored by the Baptist Church in that area. They came to visit be cause it was so cold out west. It was 21 degrees below zero the day they left and arrived here at 5:07 a.m.! They went directly to DeLeon springs and swam in water that was 72 degrees! That was a big change for them! After swimming and brunch, they went to Alexander Springs and swam and then went kayaking in Lake Stella, all in the same day! Bert said being with our scoutmaster for a few days is like an adventure on steroids. Next was getting up way early on Saturday morning and going to the beach. After seeing the sunrise on the At lantic Ocean, they ex plored Daytona speed way and later they went to Juniper Springs to see that area. They actually went back to Juniper Springs with the kayaks and did the Juniper Springs run a few days later. All sev en or so miles. Our scoutmaster has this bright green Jeep that has a sand shark surf board in it. Yup, he surfs on the sand when hes out west. Anyway, one of my fa vorite things is to go for rides with him in his Jeep. Sometimes, when we do service projects, he takes us home in the Jeep. Our Scoutmaster took the scouts to scope out a new campground for us. We will be camping there in a few weeks. Its right close to us in the Georgetown area but more on that af ter we get back from the camp out. Hes al ways exploring new places that he thinks we might like to try out. Im one of the old er scouts so I get to go with him quite a bit. Its pretty cool to be able to be a patrol leader and nd new places for us to go. We have lots of new things coming up from see ing radio controlled cars to building rock ets to visiting differ ent businesses in the area to learning about jobs and vocations we might be interested in. Its great being a part of scouts and learning new things. We hope you will come join us in Troop 957 or Pack 957. The Boy Scouts ages 11-18 meet at 6 p.m. each Wednes day night at the LDS church and the Cub Scouts, ages 8-10 meet on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month at 4 p.m. at the LDS Church.

Simmons Church Happenings Mt. Tabor First Baptist Church South Putnam CampusPalatka Mt. Tabor First Baptist Church Main Campus Obituaries All Saints Anglican Church Do you think that some blessings in Gods word are not for you or they will not apply to you now? This shouldnt be because God made pro visions for all His chil dren and everything is in abundance. The enemy is only trying to cheat you due to your lack of knowledge or inability to exercise your right in Christ Jesus. This article aims at encouraging you not to cut yourself off the inheritance of God. For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were bap tized into Christ have put on Christ. There is nei ther Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christs, then you are Abrahams seed, and heirs according to the promise Galatians 3:26-29 (NKJV). Now it shall come to pass, if you diligent ly obey the voice of the LORD your God, to ob serve carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your God will set you high above all na tions of the earth Deu teronomy 28:1 (NKJV). There are great inheri tances available for Gods children on earth; how ever, many of them are cutting themselves off the inheritance. When God mentioned these bless ings, He never mentioned the age, gender, or back ground of the people that they belong too or that will get most of them, but some Christians are adding these and in the process are exempting themselves from the in heritance. We are all one in Christ Jesus and heirs according to the promise (Galatians 3:26-29), and that includes you. Access to the Lords inheritance The accesses I see in the scriptures are: 1. Being born again This is the starting point. You have to be a child of God to access His inheritance, which is for His children. You become one by accepting Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour (Ro mans 10:9-10). 2. Love for God God has prepared great things that eyes have not seen or ears heard for those that love Him (1 Corinthians 2:9). So, for you to partake of these blessings you have to love God with all heart. 3. Obedience to God and His word God has promised that if you observe to do all that He commands, that so many blessings will be released unto you (Deuteronomy 28:1-13). But, how will you know His instructions to obey if you dont know His words? There is need for you to constantly study His word to know your inheritances in Christ and what you need to do to access them. 4. Faith This is an important access into the Lords blessings for you. Its not enough to be obedient to God and know what belongs to you in Christ, it is also important that you have faith in the word of God; otherwise, it will not profit you (He brews 4:2). You have to believe that when you obey the Father that He will reward you (Hebrews 11:6), and that He will do all He said He would do when you do His com mands. Therefore, once you have the above accesses, it is expected that you will have access to your inheritance in Christ, de spite your age, gender, background or whatever reason the enemy is us ing to rob you off your blessings. Every blessing is available for anyone who chooses to access it. There are certain peo ple who still accessed their blessings in-spite of the circumstances sur rounding them. Some of them include: Abraham and Sarah They had Isaac natu rally at ages that scien tifically were impossible (Genesis 21:1-7). So, your age notwithstanding, you can reach out for what belongs to you. Moses He started his purpose in life at 80 years (Ex odus 7:7) and fulfilled it. He brought out the children of Israel from Egypt, the land of their bondage. Its not late to start the call of God in your life Caleb He also at 80 years was able to go to war to possess his inheritance (Joshua 14:10-14). Its not about your age but the strength of God in you. Deborah Deborah was a female prophetess but she went with the men to war and God delivered the Israel ites from their enemies (Judges 4). Jesus says that there is neither male nor female; we are all one in Christ. Jephthah He was considered to be unqualified for his fa thers inheritance by his brothers because he was a son of a harlot, but when his people need ed deliverance from their enemies, they chose him to be their head and to deliver them, which he did by the help of God (Judges 11). In conclusion, no excuse is strong enough to deny you of your inheritance in Christ. Cutting your self off the inheritance is to live on earth as a slave when you are a prince or princess. Choose this day to believe Gods word as it is stated in the bible and reach out for your inheritance. No devil will cheat you of what be longs to you again in Je sus name.

For manatees, it is the season when they leave their winter ref uges and travel along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts and through in land waters. For boat ers, it is a critical time to be on the lookout for manatees to avoid col liding with these large aquatic mammals. Spring is a great time to go boating in Flori da, but manatees are out there too. Please watch out for them, said Ron Mezich, who heads the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser vation Commission (FWC) manatee man agement program. From April 1 through November 15, season al manatee zones re quire boaters to slow down in certain areas to prevent manatees from being struck by motorboats or person al watercrafts. FWC law enforcement offi cers are on patrol in state waters to remind boaters of the seasonal manatee speed zones and take enforcement actions when appropri ate. Since manatees are difficult to detect when underwater, operators of boats and personal watercrafts can help by: Wearing polarized sunglasses to help spot manatees. Looking for large cir cles on the water, also known as manatee footprints, indicating the presence of a man atee below. Looking for a snout sticking up out of the water. Following posted manatee zones while boating. Reporting an injured, distressed, sick or dead manatee to the FWCs Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404FWCC (3922) or dial ing #FWC or *FWC on a cellphone. FWC biologists, managers and law enforce ment staff work closely with partners to eval uate current data and identify necessary ac tions to protect this iconic animal. Florida has invested over $2 million annually for manatee conservation, and the FWC works toward continued suc cess for manatees in our state. Manatee zones and maps are available at MyFWC.com/Manatee, where you can select Protection Zones for links to county maps. Boaters can get tips from A boaters guide to living with Florida Manatees.

Oregano, the fragrant herb commonly used to flavor pasta and meat dishes, is r enowned for its ver satility in the kitchen. But did you know that it can also be trans formed into an herbal oil with a wide range of benefits? Read on to lear n more about oregano oil. What Is Oregano Oil? Oregano oil is de rived from the leaves and flowers of oregano (Origanum vul gare), a hardy, bushy per ennial herb, and a member of the mint (Lamiaceae) family. Its native to Europe, although it grows in many areas around the world. The plant grows up to 90 centimeters (35 inches) high, with dark green leaves that are 2 to 3 centimeters (.7 to 1.18 inches) long. The ancient Greeks and Romans have a profound appreciation for oregano, using it for various medicinal uses. In fact, its name comes from the Greek words oros and ganos, which are words for mountain and joy oregano literal ly means joy of the mountain. It was r evered as a symbol of happiness, and it was an ancient tradition to crown brides and grooms with a laurel of oregano. There are over 40 or egano species, but the most therapeutically beneficial is the oil pr oduced from wild oregano or Origanum vulgare thats native to Mediterranean regions. Bewar e, though, as many of the oregano oils sold in grocery stores are not made from this variety, and may have little to no therapeutic value. Opt only for oregano oil made from Origanum vulgare and Thymus capitatus, a variety that grows in Spain.5 To obtain oregano oil, the dried flowers and leaves of the wild oregano plant are harvested when the oil content of the plant is at its highest, and then distilled. The resulting oil is golden to dark yellow, with a strong spicy odor. Uses of Oregano Oil This herbal oil is a powerful antimicrobial that can help fight of f infections. Oregano oil also has antibac terial, antiviral, and antifungal pr operties. Other ideal uses for oregano oil are: Treating foot or nail fungus. Put a few tea spoons of oregano oil in a basin of water and soak your feet in it. Y ou can also dilute the oil (mix a drop with a teaspoon of olive or coconut oil), and then apply it on your nails or skin. Help in killing par asites and easing in fections. Dilute the oil (mix a dr op with a drop of a carrier oil such as coconut oil), and place it under your tongue. Hold it there for a few minutes, and then rinse it out. Repeat this at least four times a day. Alleviating sinus infections and colds. Put a few dr ops of oregano oil in a pot of steaming water, and then inhale the steam. Benefits of Oregano Oil Oregano oil has wide-reaching health benefits, but is most associated with respiratory and immune system health. It is known for helping prevent and treat in fections, such as: Urinary tract infec tions (UTIs) caused by bacteria like E. coli, Proteus,and Pseudo monas aeruginosa. Respiratory infections brought on by Klebsiella pneumoni ae and Staphylococcus aureus bacteria strains. Y east infections, even those that are resis tant to the commonly used antifungal drug Diflucan. Parasitic infections caused by the amoe ba giardia it was even found to be mor e effective than antibiotics like Tinidazol. Methicillin-r esistant staphylococcus au reus (MRSA) infection A team of Indian and British researchers found that oregano oil has strong an tibacterial properties that can help kill this deadly superbug. Or egano oil has also shown promise in preventing food-borne illnesses caused by pathogens like liste ria, salmonella, E. coli, and Shigella dysenteria. Adding it to foods not only helps kill the bacteria, but may also alleviate food poisoning symp toms. An animal study from University of Ar izona researchers also found that or egano oil can help kill nor ovirus, which causes gastr oenteritis. Oregano oil is also a prized antiseptic essential oil in ar omatherapy be cause its proportion of phenols is said to be the highest of all ar omatic plants. How to Make an Oregano Oil Infusion Extracting oregano oil requires a special distillation process. However, there is a simple way to make your own oregano oil infusion at home. Heres a basic recipe from HomegrownandHealthy.com: Ingr edients: Oregano leaves, chopped or crushed Olive oil, almond oil or grape seed oil Sanitized jar with lid Procedure: Boil some water in a sauce pan. Once it has reached a rolling boil, turn off the heat. Place your oil of choice and chopped oregano leaves in the jar. Put the jar in the hot water and let it sit for about five to 10 minutes. This heats up the oil and helps the oregano release its natural oils. Remove the jar from the water bath and place beside a sunny window for one to two weeks. Shake the jar every few days. Once the two weeks is up, strain the oil from the leaves and place into a sanitized jar. Store the oil in a dark, cool place. To preserve the oil, add a few more drops of grapefruit seed oil. How Does Oregano Oil Work? The compounds in oregano oil work to gether to provide the antimicr obial effects this oil is so wellknown for. Carvacrol is its most important component, and is responsible for many of its health benefits. Carvacrol has power ful antimicrobial properties, and has been shown to help br eak through the outer cell membranes that help protect bacteria from your immune system. Oregano oil can either be applied topically or ingested, de pending on the condition youre using it for However, I advise against using the oil full-strength, as it can irritate your skin. Do not apply it to broken skin or open wounds. Oregano oil is meant for short-term use only and, if using orally, it should be taken in small doses of four to six drops for only seven to 10 days. Is Oregano Oil Safe? Yes it is, as long as its diluted in water or with a carrier oil (some of my top choic es are jojoba, olive, and coconut oils). Clinical herbalist Michelle Lynde says the ideal ratio when diluting this herbal oil is one part or egano oil to three parts carrier oil. I recommend do ing a spot test as well to check if you have any aller gic reactions to oregano oil. Simply apply a diluted drop on your arm and see if any irritation occurs. Be careful when buy ing oregano oil because some manufac turers sell adulterated oils and oils made fr om thyme, Spanish oregano, or cultivated oregano, which DO NOT provide any health benefits. Side Effects of Oregano Oil Some people may experience stomach upset when ingesting oregano oil (or even the herb itself). Those who are allergic to plants from the Lamiaceae family (mint, lavender sage, and basil) should also avoid this oil, as they may also develop an allergic reaction. Oregano oil is also NOT advisable for in fants and children. Pr egnant or nursing women are also discouraged from using or egano oil both top ically and orally, as it can encourage blood cir culation within the uterus, which deteriorates the lining that encompasses the fetus within the womb. Or egano oil also has a potential to induce menstruation, and may be dangerous to your unborn child.Between dozens of albums of histor ical nautical photos, new and detailed ship models and hundr eds of blueprints from sailing ships to air craft carriers, Palatkas Maritime Museum has something to keep visitors coming back again and again. I was always inter ested in ships and sailing, proprietor David Miner said. My grand father, his brother and m y great-grandfather were all in the Coast Guard. Miner, who made a career of building docks, bulkheads and other structures at the waters edge, uses his immense nautical knowledge to educate young people about most anything relat ed to the sea. Earlier last Friday, he spent time holding up a thir ty-five to forty pound diving helmet so some childr en could duck beneath it and peer through the faceplate and get a taste of what it would be like to be a sponge diver. The helmet was just too heavy for the kids to manage, Miner said, but by the time they finished trying it on I was about finished myself. Beside the previously mentioned artifacts and photos, the mu seum also contains books of original, vintage postcards, photos of paddle-wheelers, decades old (and work ing) outboard motors and military unifor ms. One of our oldest uniforms is from World War I, Miner said. Its in great shape for be ing one hundred years old. Its displayed in our hallway along with a few others. Miner has been spending much of his time organizing and digitizing photos, blueprints and other documents he pur chased from a friend who bought an es tate in Jacksonville. By digitizing his pho tos and prints, Miner would like to be able to shar e what he has more easily, as well as create a number of slide shows to re play on four television monitors mounted on one of the museums walls. The space is beginning to take shape but ther e are so many more materials to be sorted through the collection will continue to grow over the next few years. Its my plan to make copies of the over three hundred nautical blueprints that we have, Miner said. I w ant to make them available for people to browse through without having to worry about damaging the original. Im kind of like setting up a re search room in the back. Miner admitted that he would like to be able to speed up the pr ocess of organizing materials. To do this he is in need of a num ber of volunteers.
