The American alligator is a conservation suc cess story. Florida has a h ealthy and stable alliga tor population, which is e stimated at 1.3 million alligators of every size. They are an important part of Floridas wetlands, but should be regarded with caution and respect. Alligators become more active and visible during spring when tem peratures rise and their m etabolism increases. Although alligator bite incidents resulting in se rious injury are rare in F lorida, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva tion Commission (FWC) r ecommends taking pre cautions when having fun i n and around the water. Alligators inhabit all 67 counties in Florida and can be found anywhere there is standing water. Reduce the chances of conicts with alligators by swimming only in des ignated swimming areas d uring daylight hours. Also keep pets on a leash and away from the water. Because alligators con trol their body tempera ture by basking in the s un, they may be easily observed. However, the FWC urges people to keep their distance if they see one. And never feed alli gators because it is dan gerous and illegal. T he FWC places the highest priority on public safety and administers a Statewide Nuisance Alli gator Program to address c omplaints concerning specic alligators. Peo ple concerned about a n alligator should call the FWCs toll-free Nui sance Alligator Hotline at 8 66-FWC-GATOR (3924286). SNAP uses contracted nuisance alligator trap pers throughout the state t o remove alligators 4 feet in length or greater that are believed to pose a threat to people, pets or property. The FWC also works diligently to keep Floridians and visitors informed, including pro viding advice about Liv ing with Alligators.

On Tuesday, March 28 Dr. Rick Surrency, Super intendent for the Putnam C ounty School District (PCSD) traveled to the State Board of Educa tion meeting to request a n additional year of District-Managed Turnaround (DMT) for William D Moseley Elementary. Principal Sarajean Mc Daniel has developed a d ynamic team of teachers and support staff at Mo seley. Together they have b uilt a culture of high expectations for academ ic achievement, student b ehavior and attendance, and teacher instructional practice. Moseley has a 62 per cent decrease in referrals a nd 38 percent decrease in out of school suspen sions compared to last y ear. Student on-track attendance has improved four percent and 17 per cent more students are p erforming on or above grade level in reading and mathematics compared to the start of the school year. The school has part nered with Learning Sci ences International (LSI) t o make Moseley a Mod el School for Rigor. LSI p rovides the school with coaching support for the principal, instructional coaches, and teachers. Despite the schools pos itive momentum and im proving academic perfor mance, the State Board v oted to deny Moseley the additional year of DMT. While the vote was dis appointing, the PCSD and s chool leaders are more determined than ever to ensure Moseley Elemen tary earns a C school g rade for this year. The following statement was released by McDan iel with regards to the St ate Boards decision to deny the additional year of funding, We believe in Moseley now more than ever. Moseley would only need the extension in the event that we do not make at least a C this year. The students, parents, com munity and staff have all c ome together and put so much effort and pride into moving the school for ward in all areas. Based o n data collected thus far, a C is attainable. We are motivated to continue do ing all that we can for the st udents and the Mose ley community. With the c ombination of this ded icated staff and amazing s tudents, Moseleys future is unlimited. A Putnam County Cor rections Deputy has been a rrested and charged with soliciting prosti tution. Approximately t hree weeks ago, Putnam County Detectives were conducting an unrelated investigation when they uncovered information suggesting that Deputy Patrick Dean was solic iting prostitutes for sex ual favors in exchange f or money or prescription medication. The Putnam County Sheriffs Ofce Drug and Vice Unit were then as signed to conduct a covert i nvestigation to deter mine if the information w as factual. During the investigation, Dean con versed with undercover de tectives who he thought were adult females about receiving sexual favors in exchange for money and prescription medication. On Tuesday, March 20 Dean drove to a Putnam County convenience store to meet who he thought was a female with the in tent to pay $75 for sex. In stead he was met by un dercover Putnam County D etectives and arrested. Dean was booked into the Putnam County Jail and later released on bond. The criminal inves tigation remains active as d etectives work to deter mine the extent of Deans i nvolvement with prosti tution. A t this point, there is no information to sug gest that Deans unlaw ful activities took place w hile he was on duty or involved inmates in the Putnam County Jail. Upon his arrest, Dean was placed on Adminis trative Leave and stripped o f his badge, agency re arm and authority as a D eputy Sheriff. An inter nal investigation is un derway and Deans sta tus as an employee of the P utnam County Sheriffs Ofce will be determined at the conclusion of that investigation. Dean was hired as a Corrections Deputy with the Putnam County Sher iffs Ofce in 1990 and re signed in March of 2004. H is resignation was not the result of any pending disciplinary action. Dean was re-hired in November of 2004. Dean has been the subject of ve previous internal investigations. In 1992 Dean was investigated for improper handling of an inmate. That allegation was unfounded. In 2003, Dean was rep rimanded after it was de termined that he had a r elationship with an adult female who has previous ly been an inmate in the P utnam County Jail. Dean was suspend ed and placed on disci plinary probation in 2012 a fter an investigation conrmed that he had allowed an adult under the age of 21 to consume alcohol at his residence during a party. In 2016 Dean was again suspended without pay for failing to provide medication to an inmate in a timely manner and in 2017 Dean was sus pended and required to u ndergo a psychological examination after he m ade rude comments to an adult female on social media. Following the arrest, Sheriff DeLoach stated, All allegations of crime are taken seriously in Putnam County and this is especially true when the allegation involves a Deputy Sheriff. To make a difference in our com munity, we must earn the p ublic trust and Deans incomprehensible actions do nothing but erode that trust. I look forward to the speedy completion of the required internal investigation. If these al legations are sustained, I l ook forward to ridding the Putnam County Sher iffs Ofce of this individ ual that does not deserve t o wear our star.

I was in college, and though I was a good athlete, I was also shy, and I didnt date much. It was hard for me to think of any reason a girl would want to go out with me. One day, a girl from the church I attended called and asked to talk to me. Deanna was a beautiful girl, and everyone liked her. All of my roommates were sure they were madly in love with her. So I couldnt imagine why she would want to talk to me. Daris, she said, a sorority dinner and dance is coming up on April 1st, and a girl I know needs a date. Would you go with her? I didnt need to check my empty social calendar to tell her I was available. Id love to go, but Im not very good at dancing or social things. Are you sure she wouldnt rather go with one of my roommates? Im sure. She knows about you, and shes excited. But she may not be the best looking. I cant claim that I am, either, I replied. And if shes willing to go with me, Id be happy to be her date. I just dont want her to expect somebody too exciting. Youll be wonderful, Deanna said. I know youll treat her well. Thats why I asked you. Deanna told me a little more about the girl and that her name was DeeDee. When I hung up, my roommates gathered around. Bryce, who had answered the phone, had already told everyone it was Deanna. What did she want? Bryce asked. She asked me to the sorority dinner and dance, I said. She asked you, the King of I-cant-dance? Bryce asked incredulously. She could choose anyone. Why would she choose you? Im not her date, I replied. Im going with a friend of hers. Oh, a blind date, David said. Those can be disastrous. And if the girl needs someone else to ask for her, she probably needs help. Well, its not like Im the most socially adept, either, I replied. Youve got a good point there, Bryce said. As the day grew closer, I became more nervous. The girl sounded like a great girl, and I hoped she wouldnt be disappointed when she met me. It seemed way too soon that I was dressed in my best suit and on my way to Deannas apartment. When I arrived, I stood there for most of a minute, taking deep breaths to calm my nerves. Finally, I knocked on the door. A girl with frizzy, uncombed hair, wearing a months supply of poorly placed makeup, answered. Her dress had probably been nice when it was new, but it definitely needed ironing. She smiled a crooked smile and said, Hi, Im DeeDee. I held out my hand. Hi, Im Daris. The girl burst out laughing, and I felt confused. Was my name funny? Then, from behind the door, Deanna and a bunch of other girls all came out dressed in beautiful gowns. They were all laughing, too, and they yelled, April Fools! I was still confused. Deanna said, We had Julie dress up and pretend to be your date. Oh, I said. So I dont have a date? Suddenly the girls all went quiet and looked at each other. Deanna took my hand. Daris, Im your date. DeeDee is my nickname. Im going with you? But my roommates said you could go with anyone you wanted. She squeezed my hand a little tighter and smiled. And I am. I want to go with you because I like you and Ive seen how respectful and kind you are to us girls at church. All night I struggled to believe that Deanna would want me to be her date. But I had a wonderful time. The food was excellent, and the dancing was fun. When the evening ended, I walked home, almost in a daze. When I came in, my roommates gathered to hear about my date. What was she like? Bryce asked. My date was actually Deanna, I said. My roommates all looked at each other, then burst out laughing. Nice try, Bryce said. But we know its April Fools day. I smiled and realized I couldnt convince them otherwise, so I didnt try.

The phrase Go for broke has roots in Hawaiian Pidgin meaning wager everything. Research points to the 442nd Regimental Combat Team of the United States Army as the reason for this day. The 442nd RCT was a regimental size fighting unit composed mainly of American soldiers of Japanese descent who volunteered to fight in World War II. The 442nd RCT is considered to be the most decorated infantry regiment in the history of the United States Army. Go for Broke was the 442nd Regimental Combat Team motto. The story doesnt end there, though. The date of April 5 is significant. On that day, the first Medal of Honor recipient from this regiment was killed in action near Seravazza, Italy in 1945. Private First Class Sadao Munemori sacrificed his life for the men in his unit when they were pinned down by enemy fire near Seravazza, Italy. The unit continued in battle near Serravezza, Carrara and Fosdinovo, Italy until April 14, 1945, and received the Presidential Unit Citation for outstanding accomplishments in combat. This was just one of eight Presidential Unit Citations the unit would be awarded during their service. Not only were they the most decorated unit for its size and length of service, but 21 of the Medals of Honor were also awarded. The 442nd Regimental Combat Team also earned 52 Distinguished Service Crosses, one Distinguished Service Medal, 560 Silver Stars, 22 Legion of Merit Medals, 15 Soldiers Medals, 4,000 Bronze Stars and 9,486 Purple Hearts. The 1951 movie Go for Broke depicts the story of the 442nd RTC for the big screen. Go for Broke Day truly signifies giving it your all regardless of the obstacles ahead.

Summit St., Crescent City, FL 32112 or FAX to 386-698-1994, or E-mail to pccjnews@gmail.com Letters to the Editor The Blind DateDaris Howard Did that Come From?Spitting Image There have been nu merous such queries there since and some ask if the term was originally splitting image, that is, de riving from the two matching parts of a split plank of wood. Thats a plausible idea. The mirror im age matching of the grain of split wood has long been used in furniture and mu sical instruments for decorative effect. The technique is known as book-matching and the resulting pattern is called fiddleback for obvious reasons. The theory has its adherents and dates back to at least 1939, when Dorothy Hartley included it in her book Made in England: Evenness and sym metry are got by pair ing the two split halves of the same tree, or branch. (Hence the country saying: hes the splitting image an exact likeness.) As so often though, plausibility isnt the end of the story. The numerous forms of the term spitting image spit and image, spit ten image, the dead spit of etc., appear not to derive from split but from spit. Some commentators have suggested that spit may be a cor ruption of spirit, but that appears to be fan ciful and isnt backed up by any early ex amples of spirit and image. The allusion is more likely to be to someone who is so similar to another as to appear to have been spat out of his mouth. That idea, if not the exact phrase, was in circulation by the end of the 17th century, when George Farquhar used it in his comic play Love and a bottle, 1689: Poor child! hes as like his own dadda as if he were spit out of his mouth. No version of the phrase is especially old. The earliest ref erence is in Andrew Knapp and W. Bald wins The Newgate Calendar, 1824: A daughter, ... the very spit of the old captain. T his pre-dates any splitting image cita tion by a good hundred years, which tends to rule out the latter as the source. Spit or dead spit, with the meaning of likeness, appears in print sev eral times in the 19th century. Here dead means precise or ex act, as in dead ringer. Other languages have their own versions of this phrase; for exam ple, French Cest le portrait crach de son pre (Hes the spitting portrait of his f ather) and Norwe gian som snytt ut av nesen paa (as blown out of the nose of). These are difficult to date and may predate the English version or may derive from it. Toward the end of the 19th century we find spit and image. In 1895, an author called E. Castle pub lished Lt. of Searthey, containing the line: Shes like the poor lady thats dead and gone, the spit an im age she is. Finally, we get to the first known use of spitting image in A. H. Rices Mrs. Wiggs, 1901: Hes jes like his pa the very spittin image of him! From the Phase Find er: http://www.phrases.org.uk/. Did that Did that Did that Come Come Come Come From? From? From? From? Hello friends, it is that time of year again: Catfish 2018 is right around the corner! Each year I am reminded, that The Catfish Festival might be sponsored by the Rotary Club of Crescent City, but without the support of the community, it would never happen. One of the most meaningful parts of the Festival, in my opinion, is when the community comes together to clean the berries for the Strawberry Shortcake Booth. The strawberries are cleaned at the First Presbyterian Church in Crescent City. People of all ages, cultures, and races; of all talents, gifts, abilities and disabilities, gather around tables heaped high with strawberries, to be sliced and diced and sugared. As the berries are cleaned new friendships are made and long-lasting friendships are celebrated; lasting memories are both formed and remembered. You might be cleaning strawberries physically, but emotionally and spiritually you will find yourself fed and nurtured. If all of that is too mushy, put it aside, just like we do the mushy berries. A lot of heavy lifting is also involved! There are buckets to be filled and emptied; berries and baskets to be toted; trailers to be loaded and unloaded; plus: a myriad of other activities! There is something for everyone here! We hope you will join us, and bring your family and friends! When: April 6 from 9 a.m. 2 p.m. (Show up and leave according to your own schedule.) Where: First Presbyterian Church on 301 Cypress in Crescent City Bring: A large bowl, colander, a paring knife, and a friend Important Note: Snacks and lunch are provided Need more info?

Hi everyone! Antho ny here to tell you a bout learning how to cook over an open re. It was great! We went camping and our Scoutmaster put this old rusty looking grill in the camp kit. He told us he was go ing to teach us how to x it so we could eat on it the next morn ing. I was a just a lit tle skeptical about it b ut it all worked out! First of all, our scout master got out his s andpaper. He had different kinds. He sanded the grill and then sanded it some more until it was nice and smooth. Af ter that, he cured the g rill, which means he put oil on it and then got it really hot so it became black so we could cook on it. It was ready to cook on the next morning! We ate our one man dinners that we brought for supper that night. The best thing about that is that you dont have dishes. You just throw your tin foil dinner in the re, turn it sev eral times, and then Y UM! Great food! Oh, and I forgot to tell you the really fun thing that we did. We played manhunt. This is kind of like hide and seek but even better. We choose two teams and then one team goes and hides. The other team starts searching for them and when you nd someone, you tag them before they can get away. Our scoutmaster is pretty good at this. He was the last one for us to nd. One of the other scouts asked if we had looked in the trees. We replied, Yes! One of the old er scouts, said, Well, I ve been around him longer than you have. He hides in trees. We need to look again. We started looking all over. Then the old er scout said, There h e is in that tree! Another scout said, Thats not him. That just a big old owl. The older scout grinned really big and asked, Have you ever seen a big owl that wears a headlamp and glasses? Sure enough, it was our scoutmaster! We laughed really hard. One of our other lead ers climbed the tree to t ag him! It was pretty funny. Oh, I almost forgot to tell you that when we got up and made bacon and eggs and pancakes the next morning that the grill worked great! The food was really yum my. O ur Troop 957 meets on Wednesday nights at 6 p.m. The Cubscouts meet the second and fourth Wednesday nights at 4 p.m. We are spon sored by the Church o f Jesus Christ of Lat ter Fay Saints.

Catsh packs em in The Drifters Take it on up for Festivals 20th Catsh 20 was one for the records. A 14-year old record died as a veteran catsh skinner carved new numbers on the worlds-fastest list. And old records of another kind were reincarnated as The Drifters captured the hearts, and minds and bodies of thousands who came to Crescent City for a day of shy fun and werent disappointed. I think this is one of the biggest that Ive seen in several years, festival chair man Ed Toner said as visitors continued to stream into the park at mid-morning. Early on, 80 bass shermen launched from the Crescent City docks for what they hoped would be a day of rewarding angling. And 203 runners a relatively slim eld crossed the Summit Street nish line in the Catsh 5K. The Catsh College chefs soon had their banks of fryers bubbling with the rst of more than 3,000 pounds of ngerling catsh, gator tail, frog legs and other succulents, As is traditional, everything came to a halt while the King Catsh Parade marched, roared and honked its way down Summit Street. The two-mile long event featured lots of local participation; the closing act was the raucous lineup of Morocco Temple Shrine units. The festival began earlier than ever, opening to visitors at noon on Friday. Crowds were sparse until the Gospel Sing cranked up a 6 p.m., however, Crescent City native Harry Burney postponed a trip to Broadway to captivate the crowd at 9 p.m. Friday. Burney closed the show with a medley of jazz standards, show tunes and inspirational ballads, delighting those who stuck around to hear him.

Its that time of year again when were ready to jump start into spring, a nd that includes spring-cleaning. Time to stop groan ing and think about w here to start. There are a lot of small things you can do that can go a long way to brightening up you Start small and go for the big wins first. You dont have to conquer the world in one day, or clean your home for that matter. Make a list of what youd like to see done, then plan for an hour a day to work on one of the items on your list. Wash the floor mats to get rid of the grime from winter boots and the spills theyve been collect ing. It doesnt take l ong but it makes a big difference. Check the wash water to see just how much dirt those mats have been harboring! Grab a pail and wash the kitchen floor and then do some spot cleaning of the walls to get rid of hand-prints or smudges. Pick an evening and clean the mirrors in your home. It wont take long, but your mirrors will be shin ing when youre done. D ont forget to also clean the TV and computer screens. Wash the windows in the kitchen so you can see the buds coming out on the trees when youre cooking. Then con tinue to the living ro om windows if you have the time. Pick a closet to sort through and tidy. If you finish before you expect, you now have some bonus time. Clean out the fridge and get rid of any thing not quite edi ble, wiping down the s helves as you go. Then take pleasure in filling it with some of your favorite foods! Want to spend some time outside enjoy ing the sunshine? G rab a hose and an extendable squeegee and wash the win dows outside. You get c lean windows and some fresh air. Refresh your wood furniture and cup boards with some f urniture polish or other wood product. Youll get rid of some dust and keep your furniture looking good. Wash the blankets and throws on your bed and in the rest of your home. Not only will the colors be brighter, but they will smell fresher, especially if youre planning to hang them up outside to dry. Just make sure to follow the cleaning instructions on each item! Vacuum every where, including u nder the furniture and in the corners. getting rid of the dust collecting in the carpet will not only make your home look cleaner, it will also improve your health by getting rid of dust mites. I think you get the idea. Every time you finish something on your list, take pride in crossing it out. Spring-clean ing doesnt have to b e the dreaded chore it sounds like when its broken out into manageable pieces. Set achievable goals and youll be done in no time.

The theme, Achieving Health Equity, raises awareness of tobac co-related health dis parities throughout t he state. More than 2.5 mil lion adults in Florida a re current cigarette smokers. In Putnam County, 25 percent of adults are current cigarette smokers, which is higher than the statewide aver age of 15.5 percent. T he health burden of tobacco use re mains especially high a mong racial and eth nic minorities, low-in come individuals, the L GBT community and those with men tal health conditions. S ignificant progress has been made in lowering tobacco use, but addressing these disproportionately af fected groups still us ing tobacco at higher r ates is a top priority. Putnam County has made progress in de-normalizing tobac co use in the commu nity. Said David Pow ell, the tobacco Pro gram Manager for the F lorida Department of Health in Putnam County, Many busi nesses including P utnam Community Medical Center, Geor gia Pacific, St. Johns W ater Management, St. Johns River State College, the Putnam County School Dis trict, and the Putnam C ounty Fairground have all adopted smoke or tobacco free grounds policies, re ducing second hand s moke exposure to our youth. For years, tobacco companies have spent billions of dollars each year to market their products that appeal to more vulnerable and less fortunate populations. Smoking remains the leading cause of preventable death in Florida and the United States. Health communi cations, community a nd cessation inter ventions and youth p revention efforts are still needed to dis courage tobacco use i nitiation and counter social norms among subpopulations af fected by tobacco-re lated disparities. R esidents in Putnam County can access Tobacco Free Flori das Quit Your Way p rogram for free tools and services to help them quit. More than 188,000 Floridians have successfully quit tobacco using one of these free services. For more information, please visit www.to baccofreeflorida.com/ q uityourway. April 4, 2018 A6 Evelyn Prissy Fletcher Putnam County Horticulture Agent Spring is here! Hopefully our chanc es of freezing tem peratures are behind u s, but theres always a chance of a late freeze as we received in 2017. Now is a good time to start peppers from seed, preferably in doors to keep them s afe from tempera ture fluctuations and b eing washed away. There are endless varieties of peppers available for you to purchase. The more common ones like jalapeno, bell, chile, and banana peppers are easy to find at garden centers and nurseries. The specialty hot peppers like the scorpion or peach ghost will need to be purchased online through companies such as Pepper Joes, PepperHead, Burpee Seeds or Johnnys Seed. The newer the cultivar, the more expensive the seeds. Dont be surprised if you have to pay as much as $10 plus shipping for as little as 10 seeds! As you are doing your shopping, you are likely to come across the term Scoville Heat Units (SHU) which gauge the intensity of your peppers kick! The spicy heat is a func tion of capsaicin, t he compound used in pepper spray and even pest repellents for the garden. Capsicum is a genus of flowering plants in the nightshade fami ly, in which are many o f our pepper species. With the exception of the bell pepper, all plants in this genus produce capsaicin*. The Scotch Bonnet, an extremely hot pep per, has a 100,0003 50,000 Scoville rat ing, while the mild P oblano pepper was rated at 1-1.5. Cur rently, the worlds h ottest pepper is the Carolina Reaper with over 2.2 million SHU! When working with the hot peppers, please use protective gear in the gardens. All you have to do is touch the pepper, and then wipe your face, and youll very quickly realize why we have used cap saicin as the active i ngredient in pepper spray. It is not a pleasant experience. Gloves are highly recom mended, and some p eople even wear a face mask if working in a field of hot pep pers. P epper seeds like to be warm and not too moist. It is not uncommon for them to take two to three weeks to germinate. If you notice green algae on the soil, you are over-watering and will be unlikely to get any seed ger mination. P epper seedlings transplant well, but be sure to move them to a pot or your gar den before they start t o get leggy. Indoor germination without a grow light can lead to stems that get un necessarily long as t hey try to reach for the sunlight. Like most plants, they want a slightly acidic pH of 6.5. Pro vide some fertilizer w hen you transplant them around the out er edges of the plants c anopy. Fertilizing the stalk can burn the plant, so after you cover the roots with soil, take a men tal picture of where y our roots stretched out to and fertilize around that area. Some peppers, like the datil, can easily be a perennial and become a shrub. It is important to pro tect them in the wa ter time with a frost c loth, or bring them indoors if grown in a container. Best of luck to you and your pepper growing adventures! Please take pictures or bring in samples if you have any issues with diseases or in sect pest problems.

A member of the mint family, sage (Salvia officinalis) originated from the northern Mediterra nean coast, where it was traditionally used for cooking. Italians are known to add fla vor to veal with sage, while the Fr ench use it for sausages, stuffing and cured meats. The herbs war m and musky essence also probably reminds you of homemade turkey dressing a Thanksgiving staple loved by many Americans. However sage isnt just for cooking. In medieval times, it was called salvia salva trix, which means sage, the savior . This is because it was one of the primary ingredients of the four thieves vinegar , a concoction that was used by thieves to ward off the bubonic plague while plunder ing for treasures. T oday, sage is known for its high antioxi dant capacity and many health benefits. Lear n about how you can use sage to take your health to new heights. What Makes Sage Healthy? Sage has an exten sive history as a medicinal herb. It was used by the ancient Egyptians to improve fertility, and in the first century CE, Dioscorides, a Greek physician, pharma cologist and botanist (now known as the father of pharmacology), reported that the aqueous decoction of sage can help stop the bleeding of wounds and clean sores or ulcers. He also used sage juice in warm water to treat coughs and hoarseness. Since then, herbal ists have used sage for tr eating differ ent conditions, such as swelling, sprains, r heumatism, ulcers and excessive men strual bleeding. The health benefits of sage are attributed to flavonoids, such as apigenin, luteolin and diosmetin, which are known for their antioxidant and an ti-inflammatory properties. Sage can also pr ovide your body with rosmarinic acid, a polyphenolic compound with unlimited health potential. Accor ding to Phytochemicals, rosmarinic acid is: Anti-car cinogenic Anti-microbial Anti-inflammatory Due to the popularity of sage, the savior as a home remedy, it has been extensively studied and shown to offer the following benefits: Helps relieve Alzhei mers disease symptoms: Participants were given either placebo or sage extract for four months in a study of patients with mild to moder ate Alzheimers dis ease. Compared to the placebo gr oup, those who were given sage extract showed an improvement in cognition, and they also pr esented less agi tation. Some studies have even shown that sage can help boost memory in young and healthy adults. Assists in lowering cholesterol and blood glucose: A research published in Complementary Therapies in Medicine showed that participants given sage leaf extract had lower fasting glucose, HbA1c, total choles terol, triglyceride and LDL (bad cholester ol), but higher HDL (good cholesterol) after three months of treatment. Alleviates menopaus al symptoms: In a 2011 study, researchers Bommer, Klein and Suter r eported that taking fresh sage leaf tablets significantly decreased hot flash symptoms in half of the participant after just four weeks. In eight weeks, 64 percent benefited from the treatment with decreased hot flashes weekly and very severe flash es were eliminated. A dditionally, a 1997 survey conducted by the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH) in the U.K. indicated that the majority of member prac titioners prescribed sage to patients for treating hot flashes and night sweats from menopause. You can also use sage to help relieve ailments including sore throat, digestive problems, cough and the common cold. Take sage as a tea if you want to use it as a natural treatment for these conditions. You can choose from fresh or dried leaves, and steep them in boiling water for a couple of minutes. The tea can be used as mouth wash (or you can just chew on fr esh leaves), if you want to fight mouth ulcers or promote gum health. How to Grow Sage If you want to use sage for health or any other r easons, you can cultivate it at home using indoor contain ers or grow it in your backyar d. Take note that the best time to plant sage is in spring. Here is a step-by-step guide from oneHow to if you want to try gr owing sage:25 Purchase sage seeds or seedlings, which are available at gar den stores. Find a container or ar ea in your garden, but remember that the plant will need adequate sunshine. Use rich or ganic soil that is well-drained since water accumulation can cause the r oots to rot, killing the plant. Make small holes in the soil of your con tainer or garden and put the seeds or seedlings in. While the plant is still small, make sure to keep the soil moist. Once it grows, you should only water it when the soil becomes dry. Remember to collect sage before it blooms. Cut the branches then hang them up side down in a cool, well-ventilated ar ea where they cant be reached by sunlight. This will dry up the leaves, which you can store in a glass jar. Sage Recipe You Can Try You have boundless options if you want to use sage to add fla vor to your dishes. As mentioned earlier the herb has a crisp aromatic potency, similar to its cousins, basil, rosemary and thyme. It is sweet but a lit tle bitter, and comes with a pine-like ar oma and flavor. Its usually described as having citrus and eucalyptus notes. Sage can be used fresh or dried and ground, but just like most herbs, the fresh er the leaves the more flavor ful they are. Its usually paired with chicken and other poultry, but can also add flavor to sausages and other meats. It is a common ingredient in pasta sauces and other Italian dishes as well. Here is a deli cious recipe adapted fr om EatingWell if you want to try cooking with sage: Brussels Sprouts With Chestnuts and Sage Ingredients: 2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half cup coarsely chopped chest nuts 2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage 2 Tbsp. organic extra-virgin coco nut oil 3 Tbsp. homemade chicken br oth teaspoon Himalayan salt Fr eshly ground black pepper to taste Procedure: Bring a large sauce pan of water to a boil and add Brussel spr outs. Cook until they turn bright green (six to eight minutes) then drain well. Heat the organic ex tra-virgin coconut oil and chicken br oth in a large ceramic skil let over medium heat and add the Brussels spr outs, chestnuts and sage. Stir of ten, until it is heated thr ough (two to four minutes). Season with Hima layan salt and black pepper then serve warm or at room temperature. This r ecipe makes 12 servings.Have no dental in surance or cant afford to see the dentist? No worries! The fr ee dental clinic is returning for a third year to College Park Baptist Church at 3435 Crill Avenue in Palatka. Patients will only be seen by appointment, so make sure to call 386-3257991 or 904-806-2460 for a pre-screening on Monday, April 30 and Friday, May 4 from 3 to 7 p.m. or Sat urday, May 5 from 9 a.m. to noon. Y ou must attend the pre-screening in order to sched ule your free dental appointment. Y ou will also be asked to state your family income be cause you must make no mor e than two hun dred percent of the federal poverty level, have no dental insurance or access to it. Please call because each family may have a different level of eligibility. The clinic will take place the week beginning Monday, May 7 and ending Friday, May 11. This is the thir d year the dental bus will be at College Park Baptist Church, spokesman Roger Phillips said. Ive been involved with the bus for about seven years altogether. I started out at a chur ch in Bristol in the panhandle, and when my wife and I moved back to Palatka we br ought the idea with us. Basic dentistry, such as fillings and tooth extractions, are per formed at the unit. Adults and childr en, six years and older, are examined and treated. Only acute care is done in the mobile unitthis does not include clean ings. Th e state-of-the art mobile dental unit con tains two treatment r ooms, each equipped with x-ray equipment, fiber-optic hand pieces, supplies and in struments needed for basic dentistry. If mor e extensive work is needed, local dentists may volunteer to tr eat pa tients in their offices. The dentists and dental assistants ar e all vol unteers from our area who donate their time, talents and skill to give back to the community where they live and work. T he mission of the Baptist Mobile Den tal Ministry is to help pr ovide caring dental service and a Chris tian witness to Floridas needy. Among the services pr ovided are: caring for dental needs, ministering to those in need, offering a Christian witness, sharing Jesus thr ough personal evangelism, and meeting physical needs. F lorida Baptist In volvement Funding is pr ovided by Florida Baptist Churches giving to missions through the Cooperative Pr o gram. The unit was pur chased and built through donations to the Maguire State Mis sion Offering. Today, donations to the Magu ire State Mission Offer ing provides for repairs and pur chase of new equipment so the mo bile unit can continue to pr ovide dental ser vices. The bus is staffed by a technician, and a driver is provided to move the bus from location to location. Every one else, including the people who schedule appointments and keep records of patients, are all volunteers. The dental clinic bus goes all over the state of Florida to serve anyone who qualifies, Phillips said. Weve been blessed to get on their schedule each of the past three years be cause it is in high demand and theres only one vehicle. Another thing which is very important to the volunteers who staf f the bus during the week it will be parked outside of College Park Baptist, is the local Baptist Association is providing lunch each day. This is just a small token of appr eciation for the time and ef fort the volunteers do nate, Phillips said. Even though we have to have dentists and their assistants, we still couldnt offer the program without additional volunteers to take car e of everything else that goes into providing free dental care to over one hundred patients. In 2017, when the bus came to Palatka, one hundred twen ty-five patients were car ed for during five days of treatment. G.A.
