My sister, Janet, and her family came out to visit this summer. They stayed with my mother, but they came out to our house for a cookout. Janet has some sweet children, and while they were at our house, the children fell in love with our kittens. They are old enough for us to give away, now, I told her. She frowned. Dont you dare tell my children. The last thing we need is another kitten. Our cat died, and they have already been begging for one. But I didnt need to tell them. While they were at our house, the children carried the kittens everywhere. They played with the kittens, fed them, and never went far from them. I knew it would only be a matter of time until they asked. I was right. Before they left, I heard the begging. Mom, please! they would say over and over. But Janet was adamant. When we travel, we have to get someone to take care of the animals or take them to some place. We want to be free to go when we want to without having the bother. Janet won out that evening. Through all of the pleading, she stayed strong, and the children left with no kitten. But a few days later, when they were leaving to go home, they came back to our house. The children had finally worn her down. In fact, they had talked her into two kittens so that one wouldnt be lonely. One kitten would be the responsibility of the eldest son, who was allowed to choose first due to meeting academic goals for the school year. The other would be the choice of the six-year-old daughter. Her birthday was coming up, and the kitten would be her present. The other children would all share with them. Before they left, Janet wanted to emphasize to the children the responsibility. These kittens are still small, barely old enough to leave their mother. If you take one, you will become their new mother. Are you willing to do that? All of her children said they would, but Janet especially wanted a commitment from her oldest son and her six-year-old daughter. Janets son nodded. The six-year-old daughter looked up at her mother with her big happy eyes and said, Yes, Momma. I will be just like a mother to it. We gave them some kitten food and boxes to carry their new pets in for the long trip, and they headed home. A few days later, Janet emailed me. The children wanted to know when the kittens were born so they could celebrate their birthday. My wife and I approximated it based on when we had seen the mother cat fat and when we hadnt. Janet posted on Facebook off and on to let us know how the kittens were growing and how much they were loved. But at Christmas, I got a special letter with extra info. Apparently, her six-year-old wanted to be the best mother to the kitten she could. But what does a mother cat do to take care of her kittens? The older siblings suggested she watch Youtube videos. A person can learn anything there. So some time after they had taken the kittens home, Janet came in to find her six-year-old licking the kitten. Trying to remain calm, she stopped her. What are you doing? Janet asked. Im cleaning her like a good momma cat would, her daughter said, spitting hair from her mouth. Ive done it every day since we got her. Thats why she is so clean and pretty. And thats when my sister had to explain that when she said for her little daughter to be like a mother to the kitten, she didnt mean exactly like a mother.

Keep America Beautiful Month These words were shared by Lady Bird Johnson during her famous 1967 speech at Yale University. As First Lady, married to President Lyndon B. Johnson, this inspirational visionary preserved the natural beauty of her country by participating in legislative initiatives including the Wilderness Act of 1964, the Land and Water Conservation Fund, the Wild and Scenic Rivers Program, and many expansions of the National Park system. Her vision of a beautified United States that honors its natural resources and breathtaking scenery endures today, continuing to inspire U.S. American citizens to preserve their homelands natural grandeur. April is dedicated to Mrs. Johnsons vision and was declared Keep America Beautiful Month in 1953. There are many ways we can all help beautify our part of the world. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Did you know that U.S. Americans use 2,500,000 plastic bottles every hour, and that the U.S. only recycles approximately 32 percent of its total waste? We can all collaborate to reduce municipal waste and encourage environmental sustainability by recycling used products, re-purposing our discarded goods, and reducing our consumption of paper and plastics. Plant a Native Species: Add some fresh air and greenery to your community by planting a native species that thrives in your regions climate. Enature has a helpful database for those with a green thumb find non-invasive local species. So discover a flower or tree that calls your area home and give it roots in your neighborhood. Visit a National Park: The U.S. National Park System includes 417 national parks spanning over 84 million acres in 50 states. Find one near you and spend a weekend enjoying diverse natural scenery. Just remember to leave the space cleaner than you found it and respect all safety and environmental regulations. Cigarette Litter Prevention Program: Learn about the Cigarette Litter Prevention Program and see how weve helped reduce cigarette litter, the #1 form of litter, by an average of more than 50 percent in the 1,700 communities in which the program has been implemented.

The New York Times Magazine, March 1954, had a related phrase, in a glossary of jet pilots slang: Bought a plot, had a fatal crash. That clearly refers to a burial plot. The bought in that case probably doesnt suggest any actu al or potential pur chase, but to an ear lier use of bought it, that is, being killed. This dates back to at least the early 20th century. This example from 1943 isnt the earli est, but it does make the meaning explicit. Its from Cyril Ward-Jacksons Its a piece of cake; or, R.A.F. slang made easy: Hes bought it, he is dead that is, he has paid with his life. Specific references to the farm come a little later. There are reports of the phrase being in use in the US military from 1955 onward. Heres a citation from 1963, in Ed Millers Exile to the Stars: The police dis patcher says a plane just bought the farm. There are a few suggested deriva tions for the phrase. One, put forward in a 1955 edition of American Speech, is the idea that when a jet crashes on a farm the farmer may sue the government for compensation. That would generate a large enough amount of money to pay off the farms mortgage. Hence, the pilot paid for the farm with his life. The second theory is that military men might dream of re turning from the battlefront and settling d own with a fami ly to a peaceful life down on the farm. If someone were killed his colleagues might say, well, he bought the farm ear ly, or similar. Well, yes they might, and there are numerous sentimental US films where dialogue like that wouldnt be out of place. Thats not to say the phrase was coined that way though. A third suggestion is the idea that, if a serviceman was killed in action, his family would receive a payout from the insurance that ser vice personnel were issued with. This would be sufficient to pay off the family mortgage. My two-penneth is on the last explana tion but, given that we dont have the full evidence, thats just speculation.

Jose here to report stuff thats happening in our Troop 957. To day is a bit different. W e decided to support the girls in their activ ity so we are reporting o n the fun things they have been doing. My little sister loves going to the Primary Girls Activity Day! They are always doing fun things. For several weeks, the girls have been meeting at LaRues Quilt Kottage and they have been learn ing to sew bags to car ry their scriptures in w hen they go to their Activity meetings or to church. They braided the handles in differ ent colors of fabric and t heir leader printed a design so they could have it on their bags. Ashley said they needed to make an extra bag for a cou ple of the girls that c ouldnt come so they did. I bet there was lots of laughter going on when all that work was being done! The girls each made a bag for themselves. I think there were eleven all together. Ashley loved doing the bags and the girls are looking forward to other activities. Their leader says they are learning to cook, I hope they share what they make, and em broidery. Im not sure w hat they will do with that but Im sure Ill see it when its done! They are also making scrapbooks and learn ing to crochet this y ear. Along with all of that, they are passing off requirements to get their Faith in God award. Wow! That is a bunch of stuff. Ashley said it was re ally nice of the quilt s hop to allow them to come. We want to thank the owners for helping the girls learn new things! Im glad we have programs for boys and girls.

Acne may be one of the most problematic issues in both adolescents and adults. For some people, pimples just never seem to stop coming, and it can be extremely frustrating and affect your daily activity and confidence levels. What Are Pimples? Acne refers to an inflammatory skin condition that can take on different forms. It may appear as blackheads, whiteheads, pimples or cysts. An estimated 85 percent of people between the ages of 12 and 24 are plagued with acne, with 20 percent of people suffering from this condition all throughout their adulthood. Pimples usually develop due to the over-activity of the sebaceous glands. Once the glands produce too much se bum, the pores can become clogged with dirt, dead skin and oil, triggering acne breakouts. However, the misconception that pimples are solely because a persons skin is dirty is not entirely true. Numerous factors directly influence acne breakouts, which may be exter nal or internal. What Causes Pimples? There are numer ous possible causes why pimples develop, from oily skin to hor mones. Some of the most common causes include: Hormones. Hor mones directly influence how the skin reacts to external factors. This cause is commonly seen in adolescents. Teenagers and young adults may suffer from hor monal fluctuations, which may increase sebum production, trigger skin inflammation and cause bacteria responsible for acne to form. Stress. An overload of stress hormones in the body can cause pimples by promoting skin damage and triggering inflammation. Comedogenic skin products. A special type of acne may be caused by skin products that clog the pores and hair follicles. Some of the most common comedogenic ingredients in cosmetic products include various oils and fragrances. Dry skin. While oily skin is usually the culprit when it comes to acne breakouts, dry skin can also aggravate your skin by keeping the sebum inside instead of on the skin surface. The sebum then clogs the pores and makes pimples appear. Dairy and high-glycemic foods. Dairy and high-sugar products cause your blood sugar to spike, which triggers inflammation in your body. The insulin spike brought on by these food may cause hormonal fluctuations, which also triggers pimple for mation. Hundreds of products in the market claim to help eradicate acne with regular use. While some might be effective, many of these offer empty promises. Some also contain large amounts of synthetic chemicals that may harm your skin further. Believe it or not, most of the effective acne treatments are actually natural and mild on the skin. How to Get Rid of Pimples If youre current ly suffering from an acne breakout, theres a chance that youre considering buying some anti-acne products off the market. But natural alternatives provide a much better alternative. Here are some of the holistic pimple remedies you can try out: Apple cider vinegar: Apple cider vinegar is filled with organic acids that have antibacterial properties, which can help alleviate the infections that accompany pimples. Dilute raw apple cider vinegar and use as a toner or a spot treatment. Witch hazel: Witch hazel is filled with tannins, which may help alleviate swelling and redness, and help promote healing. Mix 1 tablespoon of witch hazel bark in 1 cup of water. Soak for 20 minutes and boil. Let the mixture simmer for about 10 minutes, then remove from heat and let sit for another 10 minutes. Strain the mixture and store in a sealed glass container. Apply the liquid to your face once or twice a day. Honey and cinnamon: Honey and cinnamon contain anti-inflammatory and antibacterial components that help soothe pimple inflammation. Mix 2 tablespoons of raw honey and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon to form a paste. Cleanse your face and apply the mask. After 10 to 15 minutes, rinse the mask off and pat your face dry. Aloe vera: Aloe vera contains salicylic acid and sulfur that are especially useful for drying up pimples. In addition, it also keeps your skin hydrated and healthy, which may reduce your risk of getting pimples. Tea tree oil: Tea tree oil may be one of the most popular acne spot treatments across the board. It has the ability to fight off bacteria and significantly reduce inflammation. To use tea tree oil as a spot treatment, make sure that you dilute it with water. Mix 1 part tea tree oil with 9 parts water. Dip a cotton swab into the mixture. Apply it directly on top of the pimples. Repeat once or twice a day. Lemon: The acidic property of lemon makes it a good choice for an exfoliant, skin lightener and disinfectant. It can prevent the growth of new pimples and lighten pimple scars at the same time. Cleanse your face. Soak a cotton ball in lemon juice and dab it on problem areas. Rinse it off with cold water. Green tea: Green tea contains numerous antioxidants, flavonoids and tannings, which are especially useful for acne breakouts. Green tea also reduces sebum production, decreasing the risk for pimples. Steep green tea for three to four minutes and allow it to cool. Moisten a cotton ball with the tea and apply to the skin. You can also spritz it on. Allow it to dry, and then rinse it with water. Pat your skin dry. Ice: If you have a large inflamed pimple, one of the easiest things you can do is to apply ice directly to alleviate the swelling. The cold will vasoconstrict the blood vessels around the pimple and calm the inflammation. Wrap an ice cube in a wash cloth and hold it on the pimple for a few seconds. Make sure that you do not keep it on for more than a few minutes as too much cold can cause skin damage.The final play of 2018, presented by theater students from across Putnam Coun ty, will begin its series of performances at the C.L. Overtur f Sixth Grade Center at 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 3, continuing through May 13. Ad vance tickets can be pur chased at Ralphs House of Flowers, 605 St. Johns Avenue for fifteen dollars. Tick ets at the door will be available the evening of all performances for twenty dollars. Forty-Second Street is a Broadway show about a Broadway show. It began as a movie in 1933 star ring Ruby Keeler, Dick Powell and Ginger Rogers. In 1980 it was adapted by David Mer rick and Gower Champion into a Broadway m usical. In addition to the original songs from the movie, they added popular tunes from eight different films. It has been said that if you can only see one musical in your lifetime, it should be Forty-Second Str eet, Director Jim Pignato said. Its big, bold, colorful and has great music and huge pro duction numbers and embodies everything that is special about the Golden Age of Broadway. Pignatos first the atrical production for Palatka High School took place in 1989. Forty-Second Street is his fifty-eighth. For se nior Logen Cheatham it is her eighth since entering Palatka High. This might be my favorite, Cheatham said. This play is more like real Broadway because it has clas sic jazz music, dance numbers and characters. I get to play Dor othy Brock, an older actress, who is a well-known diva. Shes very blunt and mean to people and Ive nev er played a character like her befor e who is nothing like me. But it is only acting! Cheatham has ac cepted a full scholar ship next year to St. Johns River State Col lege, Florida School of the Arts to continue studying theater. Palatka senior, Car son Wright plays Billy Lawlor in the produc tion and talked about the show pulling ac tors county-wide. Many of the per formers are from Palatka, W right said, but there are also some from Interlachen, Crescent City, and Q.I. Roberts High Schools. Cameryn Tucker, also a PHS senior, plays writer, Maggie Jones, in Forty-Sec ond Street. My character is all over the place, Tuck er said, making sure everything is going ac cording to the script. Tucker will be join ing Cheatham at St. Johns where she will study musical theater and radiology prereq uisites before reaching for her final goal of be coming a radiologist. Dakota Br eed, a se nior at Q.I. Roberts Middle-High School has participated in four other productions beginning with Mary Poppins when he was a sophomore. Ive always loved acting, Breed said. I had a small part in A Christmas Carol in 2008 when I was in elementary school and had lots of fun. Breed also plans to attend Florida School of the Arts at St. Johns in the fall and earn his Associate of Arts degree before transfer ring to either Florida State or Central Flor ida with his ultimate goal to be a dir ector. Its all due to Mr. Pignato, Breed said. Watching and learn ing from him has really inspired me to fol low in his footsteps. Pignato is not the only member of his family taking part in Forty-Second Street. Granddaughter Elisa beth Pignato is playing the part of Peggy Sawyer, a young singer and dancer seeking to break into show busi ness. After finishing this year at Palatka High I want to go to FSU, Pignato said. I plan to include theater as one of my majors. Besides acting in plays, Pignato also en joys dancing, cheering and per forming at Po fahl Dance Studio in Gainesville. Another family member, Lolly Pignato, is serving as assistant director. Making a surprise appearance in For ty-Second Street is J.T Stout, principal of Palatka High School. Twenty-four years ago, in 1994, Stout played the part of Julian Marsh, director of the play. I was really excited to see that Mr. Pignato was doing Forty-Sec ond Street again, he asked me to play a couple of dif ferent parts, Stout said. In Act One I play a wait er and have to do a tap dance. In Act Two I have the part of a doctor Besides this play, when I was in school I was also in Bye, Bye Birdie, Little Shop of Horrors and the Sound of Music. There wont be an other Pignato pro duction until October 2018, so make sure you get out to enjoy a wonderful evening of song and dance with some of Putnam Countys most talent ed young people. Youll never r egret spending a couple of hours being entertained by this awesome musical, but youll certainly be dis appointed if you miss your opportunity to at tend this production of Forty-Second Str eet.

This is a critical time of year for nesting birds and their young, said Craig Faulhaber, avian conservation coordinator for the FWC. By taking a few simple steps, people can enjoy a day at the beach or on the water without disturbing nesting birds and their chicks, which increases the birds chances of survival. Shorebirds and seabirds build shallow nests out of sand and shells on beaches in spring and summer, and eggs and chicks are difficult to see. Wading birds, such as her ons and egrets, as well as pelicans, are also nesting now on islands around the state. Both types of birds can be easily disturbed if people approach too closely. Such disturbance can cause birds to abandon their nesting sites, exposing eggs and chicks to predators, sun exposure and other harm. Shorebird nests, eggs and chicks are well-camouflaged and can easily be missed and even stepped on unless people know to look out for them. The snowy plover, least tern, black skimmer, American oyster catcher and Wilsons plover are several of Floridas beach-nesting bird species facing conservation challenges. Wading birds and pelicans typically nest in mangroves and on tree islands. Reddish egrets, tricolored herons and roseate spoonbills have also experienced declines. Floridas coasts took a beating from Hurricane Irma in 2017, said Julie Wraithmell, interim executive director for Audubon Florida. We cant control impacts to nesting sites from weather, but we can protect them from human distur bance. This year it is more important than ever. The FWC has established Critical Wildlife Areas to protect congregations of one or more species of wildlife from human disturbance during critical life activities such as nesting, feeding or migration. People can help keep nesting birds safe by keeping their distance from CWAs and other areas where birds are nesting or raising young. In addition to observing the marked-off areas around CWAs, people can also help by following a few simple steps while enjoying the beach this season: Keep your distance from birds, on the beach or on the water. If birds become agitated or leave their nests, you are too close. A gener al rule is to stay at least 300 feet from a nest. Birds calling out loudly and dive-bombing are signals for you to back off. Respect posted ar eas. Avoid posted nesting sites and use designated walkways when possible. Never intentionally force birds to fly or run. This causes them to use energy needed for nesting, and eggs and chicks may be left vulnerable to the suns heat or predators. Teach children not to chase shorebirds and seabirds, and kindly ask fellow beachgoers to do the same. Shorebirds and seabirds outside of posted ar eas may be feeding or resting and need to do so without disturbance. It is best to not take pets to the beach, but if you do, keep them leashed and avoid shorebird and seabird nesting ar eas. (State parks, national parks and CWAs do not allow pets.) Keep the beach clean and do not feed wildlife. Food scraps attract predators, such as raccoons and crows, which can prey on shorebird eggs and chicks. Litter on beaches can entangle birds and other wildlife. Spread the word. If you see people disturbing nesting birds, gently let them know how their actions may hurt the birds sur vival. If they continue to disturb nesting birds, report it to the FWCs Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404FWCC (3922), #FWC or *FWC on a cellphone or by texting Tip@MyFWC.com. You may also report nests that are not posted to our Wildlife Alert Program. For more information, go to MyFWC. com/Shorebirds and download the Share the Beach with Beach-Nesting Birds brochure. Or go to the Florida Shorebird Alliance website at FLShorebirdAlliance.org External Website to learn more about how to participate in shorebird and seabird conservation efforts.

Assistant to the Secretary for Rural Devel opment Anne Hazlett today announced that USDA is accepting ap plications for grants to use br oadband e-Connectivity to improve access to health car e and educational ser vices in rural commu nities. Under Secr etary Per dues leadership, USDA is tackling e-Connectivity as a foundational issue for rural commu nities because it affects everything fr om business opportunities to adequate health car e access, Hazlett said. These grants are one of many tools USDA provides to help en sure that people who live and work in rural ar eas can use broad band to gain access to essential services and economic opportuni ties. USDA is awarding grants ranging from $50,000 to $500,000 under the Distance Learning and Telemedicine (DLT) program. Grants can finance projects such as those to provide job training, academic instruction or access to specialized medical care. Proposals for projects whose primary pur pose is to provide opioid prevention, treatment and recovery will r eceive 10 priority points when applica tions are scored. USDA is appr oaching the opi oid misuse crisis with a dedicated ur gency because it impacts the quality of life, econom ic opportunity and ru ral prosperity. USDA also will pr ovide priority points for grants that of fer access to Science, Technol ogy, Engineering and Math (STEM) courses. Grants are available to most state and local governmental en tities, federally recog nized tribes, nonprofit gr oups, for-profit businesses or a consortia of these. The application deadline is June 4. Applications can be submitted via paper or electr on ically. For details on how to apply, see page 14245 of the April 3 Federal Register In Florida and the U.S. Virgin Islands, Telecommunications Field Representative Andrew Hayes may be reached at andrew. hayes@wdc.usda.gov or at 770-312-7073 for questions. In April 2017, Presi dent Donald J. Trump established the Inter agency Task Force on Agricultur e and Rural Prosperity to identify legislative, regulato ry and policy changes that could pr omote ag riculture and prosper ity in rural communi ties. In January 2018, Secr etary Perdue pre sented the Task Forces findings to Pr esident Trump. These findings included 31 rec ommendations to align the federal gover nment with state, local and tribal governments to take advantage of opportunities that exist in rural America. T o view the report in its entirety, please view the Report to the President of the United States from the Task Force on Agriculture and Rural Prosperity. In addition, to view the categories of the recommendations, please view the Rural Pr os perity infographic. USDA Rural Development provides loans and grants to help expand economic opportunities and create jobs in rural ar eas. This assistance sup ports infrastructure impr ovements; busi ness development; housing; communi ty services such as schools, public safety and health car e; and high-speed internet access in rural areas.

Technology Grants to Expand Access to Health Care and Education in Rural Areas America needs to ad dress its food waste pr oblem, and a good place to start is taking steps to teach our chil dren to conserve food. Right now, a stagger ing 40 percent of all food in the U.S. goes to waste when r estau rants, supermarkets and consumers throw it away, costing our national economy $1 trillion in the last two decades and needless ly destroying 10 per cent of the earths wil derness, according to Newsweek For the av erage American fami ly, that translates into $1,500 yearly in wasted food. Fortunately, educa tional and awareness campaigns sponsor ed by food-related busi nesses and others are helping childr en under stand the scope of the pr oblem and suggesting pathways toward a less wasteful futur e. Many businesses dont realize the huge role they can play in en couraging less-wasteful habits in their com munities says Etienne V eber, president of Field Trip Factory, a firm that helps design, schedule and promote interactive learning experiences that teach the importance of sus tainable practices and habits acr oss our com munities. One of their most successful programs lever ages best practices ar ound sustainability and food waste with in a grocery store to challenge students and their families to do the same in their schools and homes. The mor e we encourage sustain able habits at the fam ily level, the faster we can together r educe the amount of food thats needlessly tossed out in the U.S. each day and be good stewards of our communities and our planet, notes Myeisha Gamino, di rector of corporate af fairs and government r elations for Ralphs grocery stores. Some ways you could teach your own stu dents, children or com munity members to help: Invol ve your entire family or class in a sixweek project during which theyre chal lenged to reduce family food waste by 25 per cent. Encourage them to suggest their own ideas for making that happen, establish ing a reward for those who achieve their goal maybe a trip to a favorite restaurant or recreation destination. Involve children in planning a weeks worth of family meals, explaining the process of choosing entrees, side dishes and des serts, shopping and paying for ingr edients, preparing food and storing leftovers. That helps them under stand the money, time, transportation and ef fort involved so theyre less likely to take it for granted. V olunteer together at a local food bank or soup kitchen to give children a better appreciation for the relative ease of their daily meals. Fam ilies or groups might also tour a working farm, visit a landfill center, plant and har vest a vegetable garden and/or cr eate and use a compost heap. Be mindful about not overloading childrens plates unless they ask for large portions. Sim ilarly, dont pack items in their daily lunches you know they wont eat; instead aim for that golden mean of healthy foods theyll actually consume, and coach them to bring home un eaten items. Note: They may take mor e owner ship if they pack their own lunches. When childr en cant eat their entire meals at home or in restaurants, save the leftovers in airtight containers for them to eat the next time they get hungry. As a nation, were en gaged in several habits that lead to expensive, unsustainable and en vironmentally harmful food waste. But the fu ture can be brighter if we begin now to teach children how to do a better job using the food resources in their daily lives.
