The Arts Council of Great er Palatka is excited to pres ent the debut art exhibition f or retired educator Esme Coward during the month of May. Her show will open on Friday, May 4 and be avail able for viewing through T hursday, May 24. The Arts Council is honored to be able to present Cowards rst public one-woman art show since her retirement from the Putnam County school system. Coward says, After moving to Putnam Coun ty while in the tenth grade, I g raduated from Crescent City High School, St. Johns River Junior College and University of Florida then returned to Crescent City to serve thirty-six years in education. After retiring, I wanted to discover my own artistic talents, so I began this new adventure. Esme Coward has given so much to our community through her teaching, and involving her students in lo cal fundraisers and commu nity events, now it is time for h er to be the one to shine! says Arts Council Gallery Chairman Evelyn Snyder. Coward says of her new artistic endeavor-, So much of what I know about art is a result of the years spent teaching our countys chil dren how to nd and use t heir talents. Through the years they have won awards on the national level, placed murals throughout the coun ty, competed and exhibited t heir art, made Relay for Life luminaries worth $57,000, and raised $8,000 for the Ol ivia Lay Scholarship Funds S ilent Auctions. Learning to use their talents to serve the communities they live in will serve them well into their adult lives. Four-time teach er of the year and 4,000 stu dents later, it is time for me t o discover the artist within. The exhibit at the Larimer Arts Center, 216 Reid Street, will showcase Cowards de velopment as an artist, from h er earliest works studying under Olivia Lay and John Hodge at St. Johns River Ju nior College, to her most re cent journey as a self-taught o il painter. While her subjects in the early years were mostly ar chitecture and portraits and i ncluded editorial cartoons and illustration, they now represent Americana, cap turing bits of history that m ay otherwise go unno ticed. You will see portraits o f nineteenth century Flori da Craftsmen and Civil War r e-enactors, among other favorite pieces. Each work captures just a moment in time, but draws the viewer in to discover the story with in. You will nd battle-weary s oldiers as they seemingly catch you watching them while they pause between sorties. Coward relates, My latest painting, called Two Old Sol diers is uniquely Putnam C ounty. It will be on display for the rst time during this exhibition, join me at the re ception to be among the rst t o see it. This exhibit will be the rst look at the evolution of Cowards art career, with works on display that span from her earliest days as an art student to her most re cent works in retirement. T he viewer will be able to download a QR Reader to discover the stories behind the paintings as they enjoy their journey through her rst public gallery exhibit. You wont want to miss it! The artist will be avail able for additional meet and g reets throughout the ex hibition time. Contact the a rtist or the gallery for dates she will be at the Art Center. The exhibit will be available for viewing during regular gallery hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thurs day, and during special e vents held at the Center.

Anns daughter, Sheila, was getting married, and there were a million things to do before the wedding. There was a wedding cake to order, catering to set up, and lots of bridesmaid dresses to sew. The list went on and on, and there was only a week left to do it. So when Sheila approached her one morning with a simple request, it was almost overwhelming. Mom, Sheila said, I need to go to the doctor for a premarital exam. Dennis needs the car, so could you take me when you go to town? Ann looked at the sewing pile and sighed. The problem with doctor appointments is they are never predictable. A person might get right in, and they might be an hour or moretime that Ann didnt have. Ill tell you what, Ann said, Ill take you to the doctors office and drop you off. Ill run all of my errands, and then Ill come back. Hopefully you will be done with your checkup, and I can just come in and pay the bill. Sheila thought that was a good idea, so after breakfast they both headed to town. Ann dropped Sheila off and then went to the catering store. She also picked up some more fabric and ordered the cake. She was gone long enough that she was sure Sheila would be done with her appointment. But when Ann walked into the doctors office, she found Sheila was waiting for her. Mom, Im glad youre here. I havent had my appointment yet because Im supposed to fill out this paperwork first, and I dont know all of the answers. Ive filled out the stuff about me, but I need some family information. Ann looked at the papers that Sheila had and saw that there were about five pages. Sheila had done the first two, but the others were still blank. Has anyone in our family had any allergic reactions to painkillers? Sheila asked. Ann sighed as she took a seat and answered Sheilas question. Sheila marked the answer and then asked another question and then another. It took almost ten minutes to finish one page, and there were still a couple of pages to go. Ann could feel her tension level rising as she thought about all of the things she had to do. Then suddenly, she had an interesting thought. Ann got up and walked to the receptionist station. Can you tell me what all of these questions on this form are for? Sure, the receptionist replied. They are to help with genetic issues when she has children. It will make it possible for us to help her with any family medical traits she has and will pass on to her children. This is just a big waste of time, Ann said in frustration. You need to just do the checkup and forget all of this. The receptionist didnt seem to like that. We have our rules, she said, and everyone has to fill out the family history for the premarital checkup. Why do you think you should be exempt from having to do it? Because shes adopted and its useless to her, Ann said. Sheila was quickly ushered back for her checkup. Sorry, Mom, Sheila said sheepishly. I didnt even think about that. Ann smiled and felt her heart calm and her tension lift slightly as she hugged her daughter. Its okay, and its actually a good thing. You have been our little girl for so long, it is like you have always been our daughter. And I needed to be reminded that you are more important than dresses or cakes or anything else.

It is sometimes ascribed to Plato and it does appear in transla tions of Platos Republic. Those trans lations werent made u ntil much later than the phrase was in common use in English and are more likely to be the work of the translator than being a literal ver sion of Platos words. The proverb was known in England by the 16th century, al though at that point it must have been known to very few as it was then docu mented in its Latin form rather than in English. Many wellknown proverbs ap peared first in Latin and were transcribed into English by Eras mus and others, often as training texts for Latin scholars. W illiam Horman, the headmaster of Winchester and Eton, included the Latin form Mater ar tium necessitas in Vulgaria, a book of aphorisms for the boys of the schools to learn by heart, which he published in 1519. Roger Ascham came close to an English version of the phrase in his manual on how to use a long bow, which is by the way the first book ever written about archery, Toxophilus, 1545: Necessitie, the in uentour of all good nesse. Ge orge Chapman also had a close but no cigar moment with his tragic play The Conspiracy and Tragedy of Charles, Duke of Byron, 1608: The great Mother, Of all productions (grave Necessity). The earliest actual usage of necessi ty is the mother of invention that can be found in print is in Richard Francks Northern Memoirs, calculated for the meridian of Scot land, Originals of this text are difficult to locate, but it was republished in 1821, with a foreword by Sir Walter Scott. The frontispiece of the reprint states that the original was writ in the year 1658. It contains this: Art imitates Nature, and Necessity is the Mother of Invention. 1658 seems the best date as the birth of the phrase in En glish. Frank Zappa gave this phrase an extra lease of life when he chose the name of his inventive jazz/ rock band in 1964 The Mothers of In vention. His use of mothers clearly had a ribald meaning that Erasmus wouldnt have approved of but Zappa did at least keep the expression from dropping into granny phrase ob scurity.

Dear Editor: On March 23 and 24, Howe Memorial United Methodist Church hosted the Spring Fling 2018 Dinner Theater, held in honor of the life of Carol Irene Bailey. Carol was a long-time Crescent City resident who impacted every aspect of life in her chosen home, from teaching Home Economics for years, to teaching music to many children and adults over the years. Carol was the Choir Director and Organist at First Presbyterian Church, Organist at Howe Memorial UMC, and Founder and Director of the Faith Handbells and Chimes Choir. She was also one of the lovely soprano voices in the Ladies In Harmony Singing Group. Our Community lost Carol to cancer last October. The void left by Carols passing has been acutely felt by our community, and many had expressed a desire to honor her memory in some way, so the function of Spring Fling 2018 was born. Carols friends and family agreed to make Spring Fling a charitable event, with all profits going to Haven Hospice Roberts Care Center in Palatka. A menu was set, and fund-raising began. For the first time in the history of the Spring Fling Dinner Theater, an annual event for the last eight years, organizers approached the business in the South Putnam Community for donations to cover the costs of the dinner for both nights, enabling all monies raised from tickets go to Haven Hospice. The business response was phenomenal and heartwarming! The vast majority of businesses gladly donated monies to cover costs, and one very special business, The Stand in Satsuma, Produce by Matt and Luann, donated ALL the vegetables (potatoes, corn and tomatoes,) and procured strawberries for the strawberry shortcake at a huge discount to us. The ladies of First Presbyterian Church and Howe Memorial UMC donated pound cakes for the desserts. Along with the business communitys help, and the wonderful local talent performing in Spring Fling, the event was a resounding success, raising $2,500, to be presented to Haven Hospice in honor of Carol. My heart-felt thanks go out to my partner in crime Kitty Miller, Kitchen guru Jessica Shifrin and her crew of minions, all the donating businesses, listed below, the wonderful talent, and especially to the wonderful volunteers who pitched in wherever and whenever necessary and the invaluable kitchen crew which made and served everyone the delicious meal.

I understand there have been financial problems in the past, but in recent years the outlook has improved. Lake Como is a very important part of the community having been here for over 133 years. Many of those that attend the services return as snow birds during the winter months and ultimately retire here in Lake Como and become very active in the Church. As well all know where two, three, or even more gathered, JESUS is there. Many of the members are not able to travel to other churches and they dont want to. This is their church where they have raised their children as Christians. Actually some were raised in the church themselves. The Church may be small, but it is very active as a family. In these days of fewer people attending church, its very important that the Church is in the community. The Methodist Church needs to support its local churches and not close them. We pray that we can look forward to the decision that you will keep Lake Como Community United Methodist Church open for the congregation, as a part of the local community and a an important piece of history of Pomona Park. Jerry and Kay Anderson Lake ComoLake Como Community United Methodist Church Thank You Volunteers Dear Editor: I wish to thank the volunteers of the Lake Como 2nd Time Around Shop for the generous monetary donation to the Lake Como/Pomona Park Cemetery Association, which will enable us to make some needed repairs and upgrades that will help the overall appearance.

Pomona Park First Baptist Garden of Prayer Last week Kevin Nelson, Landscape Design Specialties, continued the work at the Pomona Park Garden of Prayer when he built two gates and a low fence on the Holly Street side. Benches now sit among the roses where people can sit and contemplate the beauties of Gods world. One objective of the garden is to remember those members who are no longer with us but through their efforts the church outgrew its sanctuary built in 1926 and now has a beautiful new sanctuary. The cross on a little hill in the garden bears the names of the charter members and ministers of the church. The walk includes the names of other faithful members who spent their lives working for the church. Supporters of the church are invited to have their names placed in the memorial walk by contacting the minister, Brother Gary Munson, or Phyllis Frazee, church treasurer. The cost for engraving names is $50 per paver. Como we dare not desert... The Lake Como Methodist Episcopal Church was established in 1888, 130 years ago. Thirty years later, in 1918, the district superintendent reported, Como circuit we dare not desert, tho but one member at Como we are the only church; tho the flames con sumed our place of worship at Nashua, we have the entire field. At Satsuma and Welaka we have the lead. The church has had a long history and now there is talk that the little church may cease its mission. Many people regret that decision, and Nancy Cooley Alvers is one. When the Cooley family moved to Welaka, her mother Beth Brooks Cooley talked about her childhood days when she was 11 years old and lived in the Methodist parsonage there. She, her sister Nora and brother Harold often walked to school in Pomona. When Beths father, Rev. Elbert Harold Brooks, was pastor in Lake Como, there had been four churches in the circuit: Lake Como with its parsonage, Satsuma, Nashua and Welaka. The Palatka Daily News recorded, Lake Como, July 17, 1917Services were held at the M.E. Church on Sunday. Sermon at 10:45 a.m. by Rev. E.H. Brooks. Rev. E.H. Brooks and wife and daughters Misses Elizabeth and Ruth were visitors to Palatka Saturday. The Lake Como and Welaka Methodist Episcopal churches were built according to the same architectur al plan. The church in Welaka is the same church in which the Cooley family would worship when they moved from Atlanta to Florida in 1948where Clinton Cooley would hold services; the girls sing in the choir; daughters and grandchildren would marry, and in which Clinton and Beth Cooley would receive their last sacraments. Happy Birthday, Rev. Gary Munson After church on Sunday, friends met at Musselwhites Restaurant in East Palatka to wish Bro. Gary Munson, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Pomona Park, a happy birthday, a few days early. Joining Brother Gary and his wife, Janice Munson, were Irene Hundley, Beth Carter, John Andes, Monica Sidney, Carlyle and Bobbie Walls, Donna Putnam, Nancy Alvers and Carol Golden. Carol Golden made the birthday cake for Rev. Munson. Rev. Munson and his wife have been associated with the church since 1995. During his years of leader ship, many wonder ful accomplishments have occurred. The new sanctuary was built; the former Alvers home-parsonage became a Missionary House, and now the Garden of Prayer is becoming a place for people to meditate on the beauty around them. Greetings from Tallahassee Rosemary Combs sent best wishes to her friends here in Putnam County. Rosemary grew up in the house on Main Street across from the Baptist Church in Pomona. Her mother, Natha Alvers, later sold the home to the Baptist Church and it is now a Missionary House. Her grandparents and uncles were instrumental in building the little church between her house and the home of her grandparents. Her parents were active members not only in the church but also in the community where her mother sponsored the PI Club, Pomona Improvement Club. Rosemary married Robert Combs and, for a short while, lived in Jacksonville but most of their married life they lived in the house her father helped them build on West Main and Keown Streets. Robert loved to fish and their only son, Rob, calls himself the outdoorsman. After graduating from Flor ida State University, Rob worked here in Putnam County for the Sheriffs Department. He later moved to Tallahassee where he became an investigator for the Florida Attorney General until the time of his retirement. Rosemary Combs loved living in Pomona Park. She loved her church and the Beautification Committee on which she served so many years. She loved the community activities and wishes she could return to the town she loves so much. However, because of her health, Rob took her to Tallahassee where she lives at the Pacifica/Woodmont Home. Since Robs home is in Havana, he is able to spend more time with her and now they are in the process of selling her home in Pomona Park. Linda Linkswilder is their agent and she was able to get a buyer almost as soon as the house went on the market. Its a Small World! Our local clown, Li L T, Diane Geiger, has so many small world adventures that it is just amazing. While waiting to see a movie, she struck up a conversation with Albert Long, a man who mentioned hes retired from Channel 4 news. Diane asked if he knew her friend, Gus Bailey. She met Gus while living in South Carolina, and of course, he did. Gus now lives in Tennessee so she called him on the phone. The two friends, Gus and Albert, reunited, and Albert and his wife plan to visit him while on vacation in Paris, Tennessee. Of course, Albert knows George Winterling from Channel 4 and shared some good memories of him. As they talked more, they learned that Diane has clowned and is friends with Alberts son, Mr. Happy the clown. It is a Small World indeed Putnam Republican Club Nancy Taylor, secretary of the Putnam Republican Club, reported on their April meeting. Their guest speaker was gubernatorial candidate Bob White. He told the club his plans for Florida when he is elected governor. Some of the topics discussed were education, ownership of public/private land, water problems, and some very interesting insights into political action committees and how they operate. Earth Day in Putnam County The Friends of Dunns Creek State Park Citizen Support Organization hosted the annual Putnam County Earth Day Celebration. Nature-based groups of Putnam County gathered at the state park to celebrate the beautiful outdoors in the Fruitland Peninsula. This event has turned into an annual celebration of our countys natural resources. The Friends of Dunns Creek also hosted primitive camping Friday through Sunday last week. Guests were treated to a group campfire and music. There were also guided boat tours of Dunns Creek and Crescent Lake that lasted for approximately 40 minutes.

Hi everyone. This is Jose reporting on our scout activity! We had a great time tonight. I re ally liked it. One of the t hings that scouting does is help us discover new things and explore stuff we might want to do for a job someday. Our scout leaders are taking us places to see different kinds of jobs that we might be inter ested in for our future. W e went to True House in Crescent City and met a guy named Joe Lowe that works there. Its a place that manufactures truss es. Trusses are used i n building houses or buildings. They span the top of the building so the roof can be built. The rst thing we did was put these bright orange and yellow safe ty vests on. And we were given safety glass es too! Then Joe took u s on a tour and told us all sorts of stuff. Computers are an important part of the operations at the man ufacturing plant. He s howed us different equipment for different parts of the manufac turing process. J oe told us there are good opportunities to work and when we turn 18 years old, we can apply for jobs. The com pany even encourages p eople to go to college and get degrees. They help their employees to succeed. I thought that was really great. He said he likes his job. We want to thank Joe and True House for al lowing us to come and v isit their business. We appreciate it. The one thing we for got to do was take a pic ture of all of us for the p aper. I convinced one of our scouts to let me take his picture so you can see the vests we wore during the tour. Thats why you only see one of us in the paper instead of all of us! Sor ry about that.

Some Ideas for the Capsule The Crescent City Library Board is going to bury a time capsule within the cornerstone of the new library building when its laid down about three months from now. Theyve asked for suggestions about what to put in it. There are two conditions governing what goes into the capsule: It has to t in a 5x5x11 space and it has to tell folks 100 years hence something about us here in 1986. I dont think we could squeeze a bald eagle, a manatee or an alligator into the box well, maybe a very small alligator but there are some other things we could leave to posterity to puzzle over: A tattered 1984 bumper sticker to remind them of the time the Gators almost won the SEC title. A Stomper toy 4x4 truck complete with battery. Better yet, one of those toy trucks that turns into a robot. Let em gure out which was which. A .22 pistol in case the government succeeds in disarming us between now and 2086. A videotape of Catsh Festival highlights, including Charlie Buchan in the King Catsh suit. A wooden paddle, a school lunch menu, a coat hanger sculpture, a copy of a CTBS test and a set of childs nger prints to show the mysterious ways we educated children in 1986. A photo of the Dunns Creek Bride project so our descendants can see how much progress has been made in the meantime, if any. A Social Security card, a marriage license, a one-dollar bill, and any other documents likely to be obsolete or useless in 100 years. A $100 passbook savings account, which will be worth about $6,000 in 100 years, and a bottle of good Scotch. Those centennial library-demolishers ought to get some reward for their efforts. If you have something youd like to bury for 100 years (no ex-spouses, please), let us know about it here at the Courier Journal. Serious suggestions will be forwarded to the Library Board.

POMONA PARK John C. Bergquist, Jr. We lost an incredible man on April 19, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. John C. Bergquist, Jr. was a son, husband, father, grandfather, brother, and uncle. He touched so many peoples lives and, many times, didnt even know he had. The generosity John showed to all could not be surpassed by his smile and laughter. John was born February 10, 1944, on Long Island, New York, the son of John C. and Jacqueline Bergquist. He has been a Floridian since 1994. He was committed to his family. Left behind are his mother, Jacqueline Jones (Florida); his wife of 50 years, Patricia Anne Bergquist; son John III and his wife, Alison, and children, John IV and new bride Brittany(Pennsylvania), Abigail and Benjamin (Georgia); son Christopher and his wife, Kelly (Long Island); sister Ruth Herman (Florida); brother Eric and his wife Diane (New York); step-brother Philip B. Jones (Pennsylvania), and numerous nieces and nephews. His working career began in 1966 as an Electronic Technician for Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corp., testing the Lunar Exploration Module (LEM) and continued as Support Engineering Manager, overseeing 19 engineers and 30 million dollars in assets. In 1994 he transferred to Northrop Grumman St. Augustine Facility and worked preparing equipment and manpower budgets until retirement in 2007. Once retired, he and Pat built their dream home on beautiful Lake Broward located in Pomona Park. John was devoted to his community and volunteering. He joined the Pomona Park Council and was Chairman of the Budget Committee for 3.5 years before being elected as Mayor of the Town of Pomona Park in 2013. His passion and caring for the Town and its residents extended far beyond being Mayor. John remained Mayor of Pomona Park until his passing. John was on the Board of Directors of Habitat for Humanity and a proponent of the South Putnam Little League. He was a member of the Lake Broward Association and Lake Watch, ACS Relay for Life volunteer, and Neighborhood Watch member. His ener gy and enthusiasm was contagious.

ple. Earth Day in Crescent City The City Tree and Gar den Committee Communi ty kick-off featured Movie Night at the Cr escent City Library, showing Dr. Seuss The Lorax, for Tree Aware ness and Earth Day. Mount Royal History in Putnam County Bartram W illiam Bartram, 17391823, was a famous nat uralist and explorer who traveled extensively in Florida and in the South east. During the English period in Floridas history, he spent time along the St. Johns River and visited the Mount Royal site here in Putnam County at least twice, once with his father John Bartram in 1766 and again in 1774. In 1791, he wrote, At about fifty yards from the landing place, stands a magnificent Indian mount. About fifteen years ago I visited this place, at which time there were no settle ments of white people, but all appear ed wild and sav age; yet in that uncultivat ed state, it possessed an almost inexpr essible extent of old fields, round about the mount; there was also a large Orange grove, together with Palms and Live Oaks extending from near the mount, along the banks, downwards all of which has since been cleared away to make room for planting ground. But what greatly contributed towards com pleting the magnificence of the scene was a noble Indian highway, which led from the great mount on a strait line, three quarters of a mile, first through a point or wing of the Or ange grove, and continuing thence thr ough an awful forest of Live Oaks, it was terminated by Palms and Laurel Magnolias, on the verge of an oblong artificial lake, which was on the edge of an extensive green level savanna. This grand high way was about fifty yards wide, sank a little below the common level, and the earth thr own up on each side, making a bank of about two feet high. Bartram also wrote about spending the night by Lit tle Lake George. He want ed to camp on some high bank of the river and said. I soon discovered on the west bank a little penin sula about three acres of high gr ound, and [it] is one entire orange grove, with a few live oaks, magnolias, and palms. He wrote that the evening was calm un til the crocodiles began to r oar and appear in uncommon numbers. He made his camp wher e he could see the river, having good reason to dread the subtle attacks of the alligators. While fishing, he viewed an alligator battle. He wrote about a greedy alligator saying, Behold him rush ing forth from the flags and r eed. His enormous body swells. His plaited tail brandished high, floats upon the lake. The waters like a cataract descent from his opening jaws. Clouds of smoke issue from his dilated nostrils. The earth trembles with his thunder. When a rival champion appears, they suddenly dart upon each other. The boiling surface of the lake marks their course, and a terrible conflict commenc es. The two sank to the bottom folded together in horrid wr eaths. The water becomes thick and disc oloured. The gators rose a nd sank until the fight ended at the muddy bottom of the lake when the van quished made a hazardous escape. The pr oud victor gave a dreadful roar that resounded throughout the forest. Mayor John Bergquist, Jr. Condolences to Pat Bergq uist, her sons, John and Chris and their families, and Johns mother, Jackie Bergquist on the loss of their loved one. The Town of Pomona Park will miss Mayor John C. Bergq uist, Jr. who contributed so much to the Town of Pomona Park from getting financial stability, to fol lowing through with roads and str eets. Pomona Park flew their flags at half mast in his honor, and every one joins both the Bergq uist family and the Town of Pomona Park in r emember ing John C. Bergquist, Jr. Mary DuBois Turns 100 Friends and family will meet to celebrate and hon or the turning of a century with the amazing and loved Mary DuBois of Crescent City. A gathering will be held at the Methodist Church on Saturday, May 5 from 1-3 p.m. The toast will be at 2 p.m. followed by cake. Light refreshments will be served. No gifts please.

If you should visit the markets across the African continent, youd find an inter esting looking fruit harvested from the baobab tr ee (pro nounced bay-oh-bahb, e mphasizing the first syllable) has earned not just popularity in its native regions but superfood status worldwide. A member of the silk-cotton family (Adansonia digitata), the baobab tree typical ly reaches as high as 90 feet and 60 feet wide, with a br oad trunk. Merriam-Webster dic tionary notes that its native to Africa and bears an edible, acid ic, hanging fruit re sembling a gourd and weighing about thr ee pounds. Madagascar, the Middle East and Australia have trees related to the baobab, and theyre all incred ibly resilient and longlived, surviving up to 500 years. The bark has been (and still is) used to make cloth, r ope, clothing and paper, but every part of the bao bab tree has been uti lized. The fruit has also been used as a natural pr eservative, according to Medical News Today. This is the only fruit in the world that dries naturally on the branch after baking in the sun for six months. Then, the large, brittle, tear drop-shaped bao bab fruits (or shells) ar e wild-harvested in a process that in volves splitting them open with a hammer or large knife to reveal a dry, cream-colored pulp surrounded by (but separated from) the seeds, which sound like a rattle when theyre ready for har vest. Pounding the pulp into a fine powder using pestles and mortars is the final step of a rather labor -intensive process. According to The Guardian, baobab fruit contains high levels of antioxidants, potassi um and phosphorus, along with high levels of vitamin C, calcium and fiber Besides com modity marketing in ar eas of gin and beauty pr oducts, baobab fruit, described as having a sherbet-like taste, has been diversified to make baobab yogurt, salads, smoothies, cereals, granola bars and butter, the latter being used for things like pan-frying wild-caught Alaskan salmon and flavoring baobab popcorn. However, for manu facturing purposes, the powder ed pulp is often packaged and trans ported to grocery stores and outlets all over the world. Some ar e steril ized and otherwise pro cessed, but you may be able to find the raw, natural powder in some super markets. Health Benefits of Baobab Powder As the source of traditional medicine, the leaves and fruit pulp have been made into medicines to reduce fever, stimulate im mune system function and tr eat malaria, tuberculosis, microbial infections, toothaches, dysentery, diarrhea and anemia. According to Medical News To day, the baobabs most pr ominent nutrients in clude: V itamin C 10 times more than oranges Potassium Four times more than ba nanas Phosphorus Fiber 10 times more than apples Protein Calcium Twice that of milk Zinc Thiamine Magnesium five times more than avocadoes L ysine Iron Manganese Organic Facts made an astute observation: There are certain anti-inflammatory com pounds found in bao bab that can help aid in a number of conditions, fr om injuries, aches, and pains to stomach upset and respiratory conditions. By reduc ing inflammation in the body, your immune system can focus on more important tasks, like eradicating pathogens and foreign bodies. Besides lowering your blood pressure, and as a result fighting strokes, heart attacks, atherosclerosis and other heart-r elat ed complications, baobab fruit can increase your bone str ength with the calcium and magnesium, improve your circulatory health due to the iron con tent and improve the bacteria levels in your gut thr ough the high amounts of fiber. Dramatic Health Benefits of Baobab Powder Rich in vitamin C, ex periments with baobab pulp have convinced experts that it has anti microbial, antiviral, an tioxidant, antidiarrheal and anti-inflammatory properties. One of the benefits is that helps to balance your bodys pH levels. Aduna.com, an Africa-inspired health food brand, notes: Baobab is considered to be one of the highest alkaline foods available as it has a PRAL (Po tential Renal Acid Load) rating of -52 The Journal of Environmen tal Health (2012) found that alkaline foods can also help defend our bodies from chronic diseases and ailments (such as hypertension, arthritis and deficiency in vitamin D). Fiber According to Aduna.com, the nutrients in baobab powder include fiber two-thirds of which is soluble, and insoluble makes up the rest, which makes it a powerful prebiotic. Its also highly bioavail able so your body can absorb and make use of the nutrients much mor e quickly and eas ily. B aobab powder is made up of nearly 50 percent fiber for im proved digestive health; its estimated that 95 per cent of people in the U.S. do not con sume enough fiber. Fi ber helps slow the re lease of sugar into your bloodstr eam to reduce energy spikes and con trol blood glucose levels Antioxidants Among the best health bene fits of baobab powder ar e the antioxidants more, in fact, than any other whole fruit; gram per gram, it has twice the antioxidants of goji berries and more than blueberries and pomegranates combined. One of the visible ben efits is clear, glowing skin and r educed wrin kling, as the vitamin C and additional an tioxidant combination r esults in the forma tion of collagen, but in ter ms of boosting your immunity, antioxidants are known for their free radical-neutralizing properties, which helps ward off all kinds of disease. Vitamin C Pregnant moms are usually pre scribed 85 milligrams of this vitamin daily as it helps pr oduce col lagen, fights infection, pr otects cells, encour ages healthy waste re moval, combats fatigue and plays an important r ole in the babys bone and organ development and structure. Also, as a preand post-work out boost, increased C negates oxidative damage to cells and muscle tissues. This flu-fighting nutrient also provides slow ener gy release over time to reduce fatigue and support your metabo lism, and increased in take may help remedy one of the worlds most common disor ders: iron deficiency. Iron More than 30 percent of the worlds population suffer from an iron deficiency, and most are completely un aware they just know they feel tired and run down. Vitamin C helps your body absorb iron, so pairing iron with vi tamin C helps increase absorption and helps you feel more energetic. Aduna.com also notes: Our bodies require two types of iron; heme iron (found in fish, poultry and red meat) and (non-heme) iron (present in plant foods, eggs, milk and meat). Compared to the for mer, (non-heme) iron is not easily absorbed by the body. One of the ways in which absorp tion of both types of ir on can be increased is by combining the con sumption of iron with vitamin C. Blood sugar Clinical trials at Oxford Univer sity showed that par ticipants drinking milk with baobab powder added significantly reduced sugar absorp tion into the blood after digestion, which is one r eason why baobab is considered beneficial for people on a low GI (glycemic index) diet and may also be helpful for people with Type 2 diabetes. Last but Not Least, and a Baobab-Inspired Recipe Baobab leaves should be stored as whole leaves rather than ground leaf powder in order to preserve the high vitamin content. Theyre sometimes har vested for their essen tial oils and these, too, ar e beneficial for your skin when used topi cally. Better Nutrition notes a recent animal study, which found that freeze-dried baobab fruit and seeds are liver protective against the damage caused by a toxic solvent used in fire extinguishers and dry cleaning. This Tropical Baobab Smoothie r ecipe is very straightforward and nutritious, inspir ed by a similar recipe in National Geographic: Tropical Baobab Smoothie Ingr edients: 2 cups frozen chopped banana 1 cup chopped fresh pineapple 2 cups coconut milk 4 cups Baobab Fruit Drink (recipe below) 1/2 cup raw cashews (optional) Instructions: Combine all the ingredients in a blender and pure until smooth and cr eamy. Serve immediately. Baobab Fruit Drink T ropical and creamy, this is a traditional drink made from re hydrated baobab fruit pulp. Ingr edients: 2 1/2 cups baobab fruit pulp 5 cups warm water 2 teaspoons powdered stevia Instructions: In a lar ge bowl, com bine all the ingredi ents and stir well un til the water becomes white and thick. Strain the juice into a pitch er through a fine-mesh sieve lined with damp cheesecloth. Serve chilled. Serves four.We have a natu ral treasure here in Putnam County that most may take for granted or even be un aware of its existence the Florida T rail. The Florida National Scenic Trail meanders for over 1,300 miles through our state, crossing more than sev enty-six partner land management units. In the norther n part of the state the trail pass es through 1700s plan tations and civil war battlefields. The r egion includes areas such as Camp Blanding, Rice Creek, the Ocala National Forest, Olustee, the Suwannee Riv er, Goldhead Branch State Park and Etoniah Cr eek State Forest. In Putnam Countys Rice Creek area the trail winds through wetlands and cypress forests, hammocks and palmettos, partly on raised wooden boardwalks and bridges. This section can be accessed fr om a trailhead on State Road 100, several miles west of Palatka. Continuing along the creek, the trail follows a floodplain where ancient cypresses stand watch over the r emains of a Revolutionary War-era indigo and rice plantation. Using un paved roads to connect pr otected sections, the trail turns west into Etoniah Creek State Forest where it parallels a ravine more than forty feet deep. Craig Mancuso, who volunteers to help with trail clearing and main tenance, said there are changes taking place which will make us ing the trail in Putnam County safer and eas ier. Wher e the Flori da Trial crosses State Road 100, Mancuso said, the new biketrail bridge over Rice Creek will eliminate hikers having to road walk along this section of the highway. There are still many sections along the Trail that in clude road walks but the Florida T rail As sociation is constant ly working to replace them with additional connecting trails. Putnam, Flagler and Volusia Counties make up the Black Bear Chapter of the Trail Association. The Black Bear Chapter main tains about one hun dred miles of the Flor ida Trail in northern Ocala National For est north of State Road 40, including both the Eastern and Western Corridors, plus where the trail crosses over Rodman Dam and continues over and north of Buckman Lock, through Rice Creek Conservation Area and Etoniah Creek State Forest. The Black Bear Chapter also maintains loop trails, including the Rice Creek Loop section, the Bella Vis ta Trail at Washington Oaks Gar dens State Park south of Marine land in Flagler County, and the St. Fran cis Hiking Trail in the southeaster n part of the Ocala National For est. In the Etoniah Cr eek section, youll see some of the trees of Appalachia make their first appearancetulip poplars, dogwoods, sas safras, and flowering azaleas in spring. W est of the ravine theres a camping shelter at Iron Bridge. As you gaze down from anoth er bluff across a wind ing creek youll see a dense oak for est reaching all the way to the Holloway Road trail head. The many bridges and boardwalks will help you make your way safely and easily through marshes and over streams and gul lys. Join the cr ew and volunteer with the Florida T rail Association. The Volunteer Work Parties are a fun and unique way to connect with Floridas wilderness and assist with main taining and construct ing scenic footpaths. Ther e is still a lot to be done to repair and clean up the trail af ter Hurricane Irma tore thr ough our area last September, Mancuso said. A lot has already been done, but there are some really huge, old trees that were blown over that are still obstructing parts of the path.
