For yet another year crime rates in Putnam County dropped. Annual uniformed crime r eports submitted to the state Department of Law Enforcement showed decreases in crimes designated by the FBI as indicators in the safety of a commu nity. T he FDLE released 2017s annual uni formed crime report t oday. Crimes reported in clude murder, rape, r obbery, aggravated as sault, burglary, larceny a nd motor vehicle theft. Overall, the Sheriffs Ofce reporting area is down 19.5 percent. This is another dou ble-digit drop in crime f ollowing 2016s report ed 13.4 percent reduc tion. C ounty-wide, including incorporated mu nicipalities, reported c rime dropped almost 18 percent and saw signicant decreases in rape, aggravated as saults and burglaries. I am pleased to an nounce another signicant reduction in crime i n Putnam County, Sheriff Gator DeLoach said. The reduction is due in large part to the outstanding perfor mance of the men and women of the Sheriffs Ofce as well as our successful partner ships with our munic ipal police departments a nd our citizens. In 2016 there were 35 reported rapes, 273 ag gravated assaults and 5 30 burglaries com pared to 22 reported r apes, 179 aggravated assaults and 373 bur glaries. T he municipal po lice departments in P utnam County are re sponsible for reporting c rime date from within their respective juris dictions. The Sheriffs O fce collects and re ports crime date from t he unincorporated ar eas. I n 2016, the Sher iffs Ofce reported 33 r apes compared to 17 in 2017, a 48 percent reduction. Large de creases were also re ported for burglaries, w hich were reduced 30.5 percent and motor vehicle thefts, which saw a 25.8 percent re duction. W hile the county saw a reduction in the number of murders, which decreased from six to four, all four ho micides occurred with in the Sheriffs Ofces r eporting jurisdiction. There were four mur ders reported by the S heriffs Ofce in 2016, reecting no change. Domestic violence cases do not factor into the uniformed crime reports, but due to the violent nature of these types of crimes, those reported numbers are also released. In 2016, the Sheriffs Ofce made arrests in about 57 percent of do mestic violence cases. T he number of arrests in domestic violence re ports increased to 63 p ercent in 2017. Do mestic violence reports by t he Sheriffs Ofce increased from 410 in 2016 to 413 in 2017.

We had just moved into the house where we now live when we met Marie. She was a sweet widow, a little grandmotherly lady that our children soon referred to as Grandma Moon. Marie was fiercely independent. Though she only had a small social security check to support herself, she was determined to pay her way through life. She raised a nice garden and tried to supplement her income in any way she could. I did what I could to help her. Every spring, I ran my tiller down the street and tilled up her garden. My children excitedly came with me. The minute they saw me roll the tiller around to the front of the house, they knew where I was headed and hurried to join me. While I tilled, Marie sat in the chair she kept on her front porch, the children sat on the lawn, and Marie told them stories. Sometimes, when I stopped by with extra meat or milk, she would share her stories with me. Our visits always ended the same way. As I prepared to leave, she would always ask, So, how much do I owe you? I always answered the same, Marie, the stories you share with my children are pay enough. Or I might say, Milk was two for the price of one, so I couldnt just leave the extra gallon there when I knew you could use it. The reason I gave for not accepting her money was usually not 100 percent factual, but I knew she couldnt afford meat or milk or other things like that. I hoped God would forgive my untruths, but I knew if she thought I purchased something extra for her, she would never accept it without paying me back. My good wife also prepared extra food for our meals and sent it with the children to Marie and had them tell her it was leftovers. Marie always looked for ways to do something for us, so a person had to be careful. I made the mistake one day of telling her how beautiful her one lilac bush was. I love lilacs, and it was different from any I had ever seen. It had smaller, thicker pink flowers that gave it a smoky look. The problem was, the minute I mentioned it was pretty, Marie wanted me to have it. Oh, I couldnt take it, Marie, I said. Its so beautiful right here, and I love to see it when I drive by your house. Marie told me it was a special lilac, one that had been handed down through generations of her family. It wasnt very big, but she carefully tended it. I was only able to convince her to keep it by promising I would accept the first baby plant that grew from its roots. Most lilacs put out a lot of starts, but this one almost never did. It was years before it did, and during that time, Marie always insisted, You feel free to take some flowers if you want, whether Im here or not. And she was happy the day she showed me a baby lilac under the bush that I could plant in my own yard. She told me that officially made me part of her family. As the years went by, Marie grew older and more feeble. Sometimes my children would go to visit only to run home to get me because Marie had fallen or had something else happen. I would rush to her aid, and we would get her help. She would get better and would scold me, telling me she was ready to go join her husband, Les. But one day when I ran to Maries home and found her gasping for breath, I knew she wouldnt come home again. I made her as comfortable as I could until the ambulance arrived. The last thing she told me was that even after she was gone, I should stop and pick bouquets of lilacs. Marie left us that day to join Les, and her home has since fallen into disrepair. But her little lilac has thrived and grown into a big bush. Its flowers open a little later than the other lilacs, and stay a little longer, so its almost always still blooming on Memorial Day. And thats the day I like to stop and pick a bouquet of flowers from it. I pick them to lovingly place on the grave of a sweet little lady that touched my life and the lives of my family.

National Heimlich Maneuver Day Each year on June 1, National Heimlich Maneuver Day is observed. Using abdominal thrusts to force air from the lungs to expel an object on which someone is choking is called the Heimlich Maneuver. I In 1974, Henry Heimlich first described an emergency technique for expelling foreign material blocking the trachea. This technique, now called the Heimlich maneuver, is simple enough that it can be performed immediately by anyone trained in the maneuver. The Heimlich maneuver is a standard part of all first-aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) courses. The Heimlich Maneuver is also referred to as Abdominal Thrusts. Certified instructors teach the Heimlich Procedure, and these courses are available across the country. Today would be a good day to research the available training in your area. According to the American Red Cross choking causes over 3,000 deaths per year and is the fourth leading cause of unintentional death. Having the proper training and knowledge may help to save someones life. On someone other than a pregnant woman or an infant: Determine whether you need to perform abdominal thrusts. If a person who appears to be choking is conscious and coughing, they may be able to dislodge the object on their own. Administer first aid if the person is: not coughing unable to speak or breathe signaling for help, typically by holding their hands around their throat First, if theres a bystander, have them call 911 (or your local emergency phone number) for emergency help. If youre the only person present, begin first aid treatment: 1. Get the person to stand up. 2. Position yourself behind the person. 3. Lean the person forward and give five blows to their back with the heel of your hand. 4. Place your arms around their waist. 5. Make a fist and place it just above the navel, thumb side in. 6. Grab the fist with your other hand and push it inward and upward at the same time. Perform five of these abdominal thrusts. 7. Repeat until the object is expelled and the person can breathe or cough on their own. Alternatively, if the person cant stand up, straddle their waist, facing their head. Push your fist inward and upward in the same manner as you would if they were standing. The Putnam County Courier Journal welcomes your letters to the Editor.

Given the popularity of Indian food in the UK they included sev eral cookery programs and I heard the cur ry flavor pun three times in the first two programs. On looking into the source of the curry favor phrase (curry source? now theyve got me at it) it appears that it isnt original at all, but is itself a mishearing of another phrase. To disentangle curry favor, or as the Amer icans prefer it spelled, curry favor, we need to look at curry and favor separately. The word curry, as denoting the spicy food, comes from the Indian words kari or karil and was known in the En glish-speaking world by the late 16th cen tury. A translation of Van Linschotens His Discours of Voyages into ye Easte & West Indies, 1598, records that: Most of their fish is eaten with rice, which they seeth in broth, which they put upon the rice, and is some what soure... but it tasteth well, and is called Carriel. To no great surprise, the curry of curry fa vor has nothing to do with Indian food. It comes instead from an Old French verb conraier to prepare, to put in order. This is the same source as the name for the rub bing down and dressing of horses cur ry-combing. The mishearing that gives us curry favor is of the second word. This was originally not favor but favel. John Palsgraves Les clarcissement de la langue franoyse [The c larification of the French language], 1530, records a curry favell as a flatterar. F avel comes from the 1310 poem by the French royal clerk Gervais du Bus Ro man de Fauvel [The Romance of Fauvel]. That morality tale relates the story of Fauvel, an ambitious and vain horse, who deceives and corrupts the greedy leaders of church and state. The name Fauvel or Fav vel, which is formed from fau-vel (in En glish veiled lie), is an acrostic made from the initial letters of a version of the sev en deadly sins: flat erie (flattery/pride), avarice (greed/glut tony), vilanie (wrath), varit (inconstan cy), envie (envy), and lachet (cowardice). In the poem, the rich and powerful hu miliate themselves by bowing down and stroking the coat of the false leader, that is, by currying Fau vel. The first citation of curry favor rather than curry Fauvel comes in Alexander Barclays, The mirror of good manners, cir ca 1510: F latter not as do some, With none curry fauour.

Talking to Game magazine (via wccftech), Kaplan said that cross-platform play has had a huge impact on gaming. Games like Fortnite and PUBG re cently made a huge im pact on gaming by having c ross-platform experi ences that spanned the P C, consoles and mobile, Kaplan said. Cross-plat form experiences, espe cially in social games or g ames with persistent progression, are very exciting. I hope to see platforms open up and embrace the way players want to play more, Ka plan added. The tech nology and the desire ex ist. I believe it would be b enecial to everyone to open platforms up more to bring players together. So Im denitely hoping for more cross-platform opportunities.

One in attendance commented on a copy of the Yellar Sheet on display. Further inquiry revealed the following article from the pages of the Courier-Journal of May 3, 1972. This article was part of a tribute to Miller Enterprises, then celebrating their 50th Anniversary. Millers Yellar Sheet Kept 600 Abreast Local News During War Throughout the history of Millers, the store, and its employees have been constantly identied with community betterment projects. This stems from a policy set by the store founder George Miller, Sr., who has matched his sons and employees by spending many hours on community projects. But, the YELLAR SHEET stands out as one of Millers nest contributions to this community. The Yellar Sheet was a weekly newsletter, sent to more than 600 ser vicemen during World War II. It was something that actually got started in a way, Miller recalls. George Jr., was stationed in Jacksonville and he would bring carloads of his buddies with him. They would have so much fun here, that it was difcult sometimes to get them all to return on Sunday afternoon. Before long we were averaging 25-30 buddies each weekend. The apartments upstairs over the store were turned into a barracks. We had an agreement with the local police that if a soldier was passing through town, or was stranded here for some reason, they could send them to the store and we would provide them with a place to sleep. The Yellar Sheet came into being, Miller said, after George, Jr., completed his schooling in Jacksonville. We had met a lot of his friends, and they had met a lot of local people, so we thought we would start a little newsletter and keep all the boys in touch. It didnt take long for things to get out of hand. We advertised for people to bring us the names and addresses of all the local boys who were serving in the armed forces, he recalled. Before long we were mailing an average of 500-600 copies per week. We paid for all the mailing costs, but occasionally a local mer chant or the parents of one of the soldiers would come in and volunteer to pay for the next mailing. Miller said his ofce employees typed the stencil and ran the Yellar Sheet off on a mimeograph machine. We sent them all over the world, Miller said. Anywhere that we had men stationed. After the war was over, Miller said that service personnel were invited to a party, or we called it then, a shindig, in Crescent City. I promised them when this thing was over that we would throw a real party for them and brother dont let anybody tell you any different, we had a real party. Miller said for three days, we had a parade, a dance, minstrel show, barbeque, and a memorial service. Soldiers from throughout the country attended the party. After it was over the boys presented Mr. and Mrs. Miller each with a watch, a china cabinet and a scrapbook containing many of the Yellar Sheets. The watch was a good one, Miller said pointing to the watch on his wrist. Im still wearing it today, (from) nearly 30 years ago.

A4 Hi everyone! Fransis co here to report on the S cout activities from Troop 957 and Pack 957. Our Troop loves to go kayaking and canoing. It seems strange but we have a lot of fun on the water. Its nice because we can go canoing real ly often. Did you know t hat they dont do that out west because they dont have access to wa ter areas out west like w e do here in Florida. In fact, our scout lead er said that their scout t roop wanted to go on a week long canoe trip and it took six months of planning because they had to have people follow them and move them from one area to another so they could go on the trip. At one place they had to pick up the canoes and carry them over their heads to get to the next place where they could put their ca noes in the water. That j ust seems so bizarre to me! They needed lots of strength to carry a canoe even with two of them helping one anoth er! All we do is say, hey, l ets go kayaking at Lake Stella and zippady zap we are there. It isnt difcult here in Crescent City because we have so much water close by. We have found incredible places to oat. Being in a kayak is a great experience. You are really close to the water and sometimes it is just nice to hear the quiet and listen to the sounds of nature. Its very peaceful. Lake Stella has some beauti ful calm mornings. Our s cout leader sometimes gets his son and they go to Lake Stella to just glide and be peaceful. His son says it is very soothing and a great way to start the day! If you want to enjoy some fun adventures, come join us at Troop 957. We are sponsored by the church of Je sus Christ of Latter D ay Saints. We meet on Wednesday nights at 6 p.m. Our Cub Scouts meet at 4:30 p.m. on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month. Hope to have you join us.

This week we go to Crescent City High School for this exclu sive article. The famed teacher and coach; Drew Richardson has passed away. When I first heard this news I was shocked to my foundation and bro ken. He was such a gr eat person, teach er, coach and inspi ration. Many students thr ough CCHS decided to decorate the halls with signatures, mes sages of good-bye, and flowers to the once great teacher. Social media blew up with students re sponses to the death of Richar dson. Just shows that students do care for their teach ers and it is a warming feeling. Richar dson is in a better place and may his family and loved ones find peace and the strength that they need to carry on. I would like to share my opinion of Richie and may it bless the hearts of all that cared for him. I just came to Putnam County in June of 2011 and was scared because I did not know a lot of people. It was my junior year that I walked into Rich ardsons classroom during my first times walking ar ound the school halls. He was a teacher that was very unique and made you feel special every time. He made me laugh and made the classroom laugh as well. He sur ely knew how to do his job but he had the compassion and the love for his students. He made it his goal in life to help every student the best way he knew how. He is truly going to be missed. My heart is br oken, but I know that Richie is in a better place where he doesnt feel pain and sorrow. Everyone in the CCHS communi ty and his family and l oved ones will miss him. A little about him, he was 56 years of age from Fleming Island and formerly right here in Palatka, he passed away Tuesday, May 15 at the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Jackson ville. He was an Eagle scout and r ecipient of the God and Country medal. He graduat ed from Palatka High School, class of 1979, a nd was a graduate of FSU. He was part of the Raider Nation for four years and over the past four years he taught English, Eco nomics, American Gover nment, and AVID 1, 2, and 3. He also was the Head Girls Soccer Coach for two years, Assistant Baseball Coach for three years and Senior Class Sponsor Surviving are his beloved mother, Margaret Richardson, devoted wife of 32 years, Michele; two loving daughters, Jor dan and Stevie; and tw o grandsons, Liam and Murphy due July 2018.

More than 15,000 lionfish were re moved from Flori da waters thanks t o several tourna ments held across t he state focused on targeting the in vasive species. Five o f those fish were tagged previously by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva tion Commission ( FWC) staff as part of the 2018 Lion fish Challenge, a r emoval incentive program that start ed May 19 on Li onfish Removal and A wareness Day. This is an amazing showing for t he fourth annual Lionfish Removal and Awareness Day weekend and sur rounding events, s aid Jessica Mc Cawley, director of F WCs Division of Marine Fisheries Management. Lionfish were removed v ia tournaments and the FWCs in centive program, a nd the public got to learn first-hand about lionfish and what they can do to help at festivals like the one in Per dido Key held by t he FWC and Coast Watch Alliance, as well as various oth er partners. T he Lionfish Chal lenge runs through S eptember 3. More than 200 people have already regis tered to participate i n the statewide Challenge, which re wards lionfish har vesters with prizes f or their lionfish re movals, tagged or n ot.

Lionsh are po tentially the fast est breeders in the W estern Atlantic Basin. In favorable con ditions female lionsh can release egg masses appr oximately every four days, up to two million eggs a year. Lionsh larvae have an incredibly high recruitment rate to suitable habi tat, meaning that p otentially more eggs become larvae, which then become juvenile lionfish settled somewhere that they can grow and live relatively free from environ mental pressure. To put it another way: Lionsh br eed fast er than rabbits and most of them nd good h omes with plenty of food. Li onsh are sexually matur e when they reach one year of age and can live well beyond 15 years. There are aquarium owners who have reported having a lionsh live to 20 years old. Invasive lionfish eat everything that they can t into their mouths and that their stomachs can handle. Lionsh can eat prey over half the size of their own body as long as it will t into their mouths. Their stom ach can expand up to 30 times the nor mal volume and a lionsh will ll up to capacity as soon as it is able. Lionsh are not picky eaters and feed indiscriminately. Scientists have cataloged over 70 dif ferent species that lionsh will eat through stomach content analysis. In addition to the sh they eat, they also eat invertebrates and mollusks shrimp, crabs, juve nile octopus, squid, juvenile lobster sea horses, etc. The native spe cies that invasive lionsh are feeding upon do not recognize lionsh as a pr edator and ee. In fact, just the opposite has been shown to be true. Small sh will often congregate around a lionfish, most likely believing that the lionshs long spines, fin rays and feathery pecto ral ns offer them shelter and pr otection from predators. However when the lionsh is ready to eat, these sh are herded into alcoves where they cannot escape. Lionsh use lighting fast strikes and gulp down doz ens of whole sh at a time. Science has demonstrat ed that a single lionsh can reduce native marine creatures by 80 percent to 90 per cent in its range within just ve weeks. Here is what we do know today these facts are proven: Native sh stocks are down as a di rect and identi able result of lion sh predation. Commer cial sh eries and the lobster industry in Florida ar e crashing as a direct r esult of lionsh predation. Reef health in the Western Atlantic Basin is in serious decline. The lionsh pop ulation contin ues to grow at an ALARMING rate and they are es tablishing their range further south into South America every day. Direct action by lionsh hunters is the only viable method for con trolling lionfish populations in the very, very small area that we can reach, relative to the entire range of the new lionsh habitat. The areas that are regularly main tained by lion sh hunters see a demonstrable rebound of native sh and other sea creatures in time. We are rapidly running out of time as we ar e ap proaching a tip ping point from which our under water ecosystems cannot r ecover.
