Dead t urtles have been re ported along the St. J ohns River watershed including water bodies in Orange, Seminole and Putnam counties. The FWC would like to learn about any other areas of the state that may be impacted. The FWC rst re ceived reports about d ead turtles in ear ly 2018 and has been c losely monitoring the situation. Reports and surveys indicate there have been approxi mately 100 dead and d ying turtles along the St. Johns River water shed. Scattered reports h ave been received from other regions in the state, such as Trout Lake near Eustis. The mortality event is pri marily affecting Flori da softshell turtles, one o f the most common freshwater turtle spe cies in Florida. Howev er, a few river cooters h ave also been found dead. The FWC is asking the public to help by reporting sightings of dead or dying tur tles by contacting the F WCs Fish Kill Hotline at 800-636-0511 or submitting an online report at MyFWC.com/ FishKill. FWC biologists and veterinarians have collected samples for necropsy and diagnos tics. At this time, the c ause of the die-off is unknown, and FWC staff are conducting an investigation in collab oration with the Uni versity of Florida to de termine the cause. T issue samples are being evaluated at sev eral labs for a variety o f pathogens. Although necropsy results do not suggest the mortality event is due to a tox in, tissue samples have a lso been submitted to a toxicology lab for evaluation. So far, tox icology tests have all b een negative. There are three na tive species of softshell t urtle in Florida: the Florida softshell, Gulf Coast smooth softshell turtle and Gulf Coast spiny softshell turtle. The Florida softshell turtle is one of the larg est freshwater turtles i n Florida. They have eshy shells adapted for swimming, a long neck and an elongated head with a long snor kel-like nose.Special to theCourier Journal FWC Investigates Turtle Kill Off Vehicle Thief Arrested Saturday, May 26 in Palatka.

When I was asked to be the music teacher for all of the children in our congregation who were under twelve years old, I was scared to death. I had never led music before. In our church, we call the organization that works with children of that age primary. The woman who was the primary leader told me the most important thing was to just love the children. That was the one thing I knew I could do. I loved the children, and after I learned to let go of my fear of making a fool of myself, it became the greatest assignment of my life. That is not to say that I didnt still make a fool of myself. I just learned that it didnt matter to the children when I did. One spring I decided we should sing a few songs for the season. We had just finished singing a song about baby animals being born and how life was new, when a little four-year-old boy raised his hand. Yes, Jeremy, I said. What do you want? Baby animals dont just get born in the springtime, he said. Thats true, I replied. Baby animals are born all year long. Did you know our dog had puppies last fall? Jeremy asked. No, I didnt, I replied. Im sure that was a lot of fun. And I got to see baby chicks hatch this last winter, Jeremy added. They were all fuzzy and cute and barely fit in the egg. Watching a baby chick being born is really amazing, isnt it? I said. I asked my dad how the baby chick got into the egg, Jeremy said. The eggs we eat dont have any baby chicks in them. My dad explained to me all about how animals get born and why the baby birds were in there. I was sure that this was quickly turning into a lesson on the birds and the bees, and that was the last thing I wanted to talk about during music time for children, especially at church. I decided that I should try to change the subject. Thats nice that you and your dad had a good talk about it, I said. How about we sing another song about springtime? But dont you want to know about how baby chicks get in the eggs? Jeremy asked. Well, that is probably something that is special and should be shared just between you and your dad, I replied. But Jeremy was not to be dissuaded. He wanted to impart his newfound knowledge. My dad said that when a person just has hens, there cant be any baby chicks, Jeremy said. Did you know that? Uh, yes, Jeremy, I replied, I did know that. My dad said that a person has to have a rooster, Jeremy said. How about we sing a song about growing gardens and how God gives us sunshine and rain to make them grow? I interjected. But Jeremy didnt miss a beat. Thats why we dont have any eggs with chicks in them, he said, because we dont have any roosters. That too bad, I replied. Well, lets sing . . So, you see, Jeremy interrupted, the eggs the hens lay dont have baby chicks in them, and thats why we eat those eggs. Its only the eggs that roosters lay that have the baby chicks. I think that after our hens get old and die, the next time we should get all roosters so we can have rooster eggs and have baby chicks. I smiled. I guess youll have to take that up with your dad, Jeremy. It truly is amazing the things a person can learn from children.

His frontier exploits made him one of United States first folk heroes. By the end of the 18th century, following the route marked by Boone, more than 200,000 European people had migrated to Kentucky/Virginia. Daniel Boone married Rebecca Bryan on August 14, 1756. They lived in a cabin on his fathers farm and had ten children. He supported his family as a market hunter, collecting pelts for the fur trade. During the Revolutionary War, Boone was a militia officer and in 1778 was captured by the Shawnee warriors who adopted him into their tribe. He later left the Indians, returning to Boonesborough to help defend the European settlements in Kentucky/Virginia. Following the war, Daniel Boone immigrated to eastern Missouri where he spent most of the last two decades of his life. Boone died of natural causes on September 26, 1820, at the age of 85. His last words were, Im going now, my time has come. There are many places in the United States that are named after Daniel Boone including the Daniel Boone National Forest, the Sheltowee Trace Trail, the town of Boone, North Carolina, and seven different counties. Schools are also named after Boone, including locations in Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Chicago. A legend in his own lifetime, Boone remains an iconic figure in American history. Daniel learned how to chop wood by the time he was five. By the age of 10 he was caring for his fathers cows. Daniel Boone became friends with the Delaware Indians as a child. They taught him survivor skills and he even began to dress like them. Daniel Boone gained a reputation as the best sharpshooter in the land after moving to North Carolina. Daniel Boone served in the French and Indian War (1754 = 1763) on the British side. Daniel married Rebecca Bryan on August 14, 1756. Rebeccas brother was married to one of Daniel Boones sisters. Daniel and Rebecca had 10 children. Daniel Boone died on September 26, 1820 at the age of 85. He was buried next to his late wife. Daniel Boones rifle was nicknamed Ticklicker. He was such a good shot that people joked that he could shoot a tick off of a bears back. Daniel Boone wore a beaver hat, not a coonskin cap as he is often portrayed The Putnam County Courier Journal welcomes your letters to the Editor. Letters should be brief and legibly written.

In choosing not to hyphenate die-hard, which is the currently accepted spelling, they reverted to the original meaning of the term to die hard was to die reluctantly, resisting to the end. This meaning of the term was recorded in 1703, in Psychologia: or, an Account of the Nature of the Rational Soul. The text argues the pros and cons of a condemned mans approach to death: Against this Reason he [William Coward] urges the case of those that die hard, as they call it, at Tyburn who will therefore, according to him, out-brave the Terrors of the Lord. Tyburn, near what is now Marble Arch, in London, was the principal location for public hangings in England until 1783. The drop method of hanging wasnt then in use and the process was sometimes a prolonged affair. There are records showing that some of those who were about to be hanged opted to take the opposite course to the die hards and paid people to hang onto their legs so that they died quickly. Theres no evidence however for the commonly repeated notion that this is the derivation of the phrase pulling ones leg. The wider use of the term came into being in the following century. At the Battle of Albuhera in the Peninsula War in 1811, William Inglis, the commander of the British 57th Regiment of Foot, ordered all ranks Die hard the 57th, die hard! that is, to fight until the last. The regiment later became known as the Die-hards. In the early 20th century, die-hard was more usually used to describe a member of the political faction who were prepared to die in the last ditch in their resistance to the Home Rule Bill of 1912. In 1922, the meaning took a step away from actual deaths, toward our present-day figurative meaning, when the members of the Conservative Party who followed the leadership of the Marquess of Salisbury named themselves The Diehards. Like zigzag, meanwhile, and countless other terms which are coined as two words, later to become hyphenat ed and later still to merge into a single word, the diehard spelling will probably come to be preferred before long. From the Phase Finder: http://www. phrases.org.uk/. Did that Did that Did that Come Come Come Come From? From? From? From? Dear Editor: I am ashamed of the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church. We took Gods commandments out of the court houses. We did away with capital punishment and murders get to sit in jail and are supported by good, hard working, God fearing people. We give support to people who have children they treat worse than animals. The more children they have, the more money they receive from government programs. And an even worse travesty coming into existence now is the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church in Jacksonville is forcing Community United Methodist Church of Lake Como to close by intimidating the seniors who worship there and locking them out of their church so they, the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church, can confiscate and sell the church and property that they never paid for and dont intend to pay for. They reported that they are planning to force closure and confiscate 200 or more United Methodist Churches over the next seven years. If you are a United Methodist Church, you may be next on the list to be axed. Churches should be about souls, not dollars. Jane Miller Pomona Park rfn tbb

The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) is launching its Safe Summer T ravel Campaign, reminding motorists to put safety at the top of their travel checklist this summer. With more residents and visitors on Floridas roadways, the DHSMV and its Division of the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) are partnering with the Department of Children and Families, Florida Department of Transportation, Florida Police Chiefs Association, Florida Sheriffs Association and AAA The Auto Club Gr oup to help ensure all travelers Arrive Alive. Summer is a great time to explore all Florida has to offer. Before heading out on the road, make sure you and your ve hicle are travel-ready by checking your tir es, checking for recalls and always buckling up, said DHSMV Ex ecutive Director Terry L. Rhodes. Ther e are more travelers on Flor idas roads than ever befor e, so its critical to remember to slow down, stay cool and be safe. In Florida in 2017, there were 54,044 and 64,541 speeding citations in June and July, respec tively. The number of speeding citations given in July was the high est out of any month in 2017. The highest num ber of unlawful speed citations wer e written to 20 year old drivers and 61 percent of all speeding citations were issued to men. The Florida Highway Patrol strongly urges everyone to follow all laws as you travel to your destination this summer and reminds drivers, no matter how eager you are to get to your desti nation, aggressive driv ing is extremely danger ous, said Colonel Gene S. Spaulding, Dir ector of the Florida Highway Patrol. State Troopers will be visible to ensure that drivers are obeying speed limits and every one is buckled up. In 2017, 3,306 tire-related crashes occurred in Florida, r esulting in 285 serious bodily injuries and 46 fatalities. As a vehicles rst line of defense, tires should be routinely inspected and maintained to ensure they are in good condi tion. In addition to educating Floridians on the importance of tire safety and seat belt use, the DHSMV r eminds motor ists to follow this criti cal Safe Summer Travel Checklist: Slow down, stay cool. Obey all posted speed limits. Speeding and driving aggr essively in creases the probability and severity of a crash. Check all tir es, including the spare. Check the vehicles tir e pressure and ensure the vehicles tires have adequate tire tread. Under-inated tires can overheat. Nev er overload a vehicle; it can r esult in premature tire wear, blowouts and hydroplaning. Prepare for driving in inclement weather. Summer is hurricane season in Florida, and along with an incr eased num ber of wildres, driv ers should be aware of changing weather and r oad conditions. Drivers should know their evacuation routes, check r oad closures and call *FHP to report unsafe road conditions. NEVER leave children or pets in vehicles unat tended. Summer can be incr edibly hot in Florida and leaving children or pets unattended for even a short time can be deadly. Make sure all passengers are accounted for when exit ing the vehicle. Register emer gency contact information. In the event of an emer gency, make sure law enfor cement knows who to call. The DHSMV al lows all driver license and ID car d holders to register up to two des ignated emergency contacts. Log on to www. hsmv.gov/eci to register or update contacts. Check for recalls. Always make sure your vehicle is in peak condi tion to travel. Check for r ecalls before hitting the road at www.safercar. gov. Drive Sober.

The following is part of an article describing the situation. History Buff Working for Future of Putnam Jim Millican is a na tive Putnam Countian who pr obably knows as much about the history of the area as anybody around; after all, he helped make a good deal of it. But his prime interest has been in working for the countys future, not its past. Im a great believer in growth, said the 74-year-old Chairman of the Board of the First Federal Savings and Loan association of Putnam County. And Im a great believ er in the county. Millican was bor n near Orange Mills and educated at the University of Florida School of Law. He was an attorney for the Putnam County Commission for 31 years and served four ter ms as Palatkas mayor before ending his law practice with Butler Dowda and getting into banking full-time. As the countys attor ney, he worked long and har d behind the scenes to bring mod ernization in the form of impr oved highways and roads to Putnam; he was one of the mov ers, for example, in the pr oject to have U. S. 17 straightened and run through downtown Crescent City. There were two ma jor obstacles to keep us fr om the Highway 17 project, Millican said. One was obtaining the necessary right-of-way. The other thing was, the state would not pay for the r elocation of the water and sewer lines along Summit Street, the future route of the high way. W orking through the road board, which was then called the County Board of Bond Trustees, the county oated a bond issue to pay for the right-of-way. Then Millican and oth er proponents of the highway came up with an imaginative way for Cr escent City to pay for the utility line relo cations by pledging its portion of county r oad tax rebates toward the project. With the nancial considerations taken care of, Millican had only to worry about getting the citizens of Crescent City to go along with the whole idea. The idea of the high way going straight thr ough Crescent City wasnt unanimously welcomed, by any means, he said. The gr oup that favored it was a majority, but a small majority. There was a considerable amount of controversy and rancor stirred up. Millican was the legal advisor to not only the county commission, but the Crescent City town council as well, and he represented several prominent citizens in the city too, since at that time ther e were no lawyers in Crescent City. He often found himself in the middle of the controversy. Ther e was a group of women in Crescent City who opposed the highway altogether, he said. Summit Str eet at the time was a beautiful oak-covered drive. There were about 60 big oaks that would have to come down to make r oom for the highway. There was a big Save-Our-Trees campaign. Taking down those tr ees was not a tasteful thing for the politicians to do. In the long run, wed have to say it was worth it. But at the time, it caused a lot of bitter feelings. Millican said another group wanted the r oad to run two blocks west of where it is now, roughly along the shore of Lake Stella. But, he asserted, the environmental price would have been even higher. Time has proven that this was the right thing to do. Theres no doubt that getting Highway 17 put through the town really brought Crescent City to life, he said.

Simmons Mt. Tabor First Baptist Church South Putnam CampusPalatka Mt. Tabor First Baptist Church Main Campus Do you desire to build up your faith? A believing Christian needs to build up his or her faith in order to survive or succeed as a Christian. However, this is a big challenge to many, not knowing how to do so. This ar ticle points you to how t o build up your faith through Christ. So then faith comes by hearing, and hear ing by the word of G od Romans 10:17 (NKJV). In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth John 1:1, 14 (NKJV). Looking unto Jesus, the author and finish er of our faith He brews 12:2a (NKJV). F aith is a very import ant virtue a believing C hristian must pos sess, because without i t no man can please God (Hebrews 6:11). In fact, Christianity (the gospel of Christ) is summarized as the faith. Our vic tory in Jesus is de pendent on our ability t o believe in Him and what He had done for our salvation and do minion on earth. The g ood news is that ev ery child of God has a m easure of faith (Ro mans 12:3). However, t he level of dominion you exercise on earth at any time is deter mined by how much y ou have built your faith at that time. But how do you build up your faith? The word of God says that faith comes as we hear and understand the word of God (Ro mans 10:17). Also, the s criptures say that Jesus is the word of God. So, we can say that faith comes as we hear and understand Jesus. Hebrews 12:2a confirms this by tell ing us that Jesus is t he author and finish er of our faith. There fore your faith starts a nd ends with Christ. Having a burning desire to know more about Jesus is a vital step in building up your faith. This will move you to search the scriptures, which will reveal Christ more and more to you. The more you believe in what Christ has done, and as such what He can do, the more your faith grows. The books of Mat thew, Mark, Luke and J ohn give account of Christs walk on earth: His teachings, the miracles, signs and wonders that He performed. Then the Acts of the apostles recorded the acts of the apostles of Christ, who believed in Him and exercised their faith in His teachings, and the Lord con firmed the word with s igns and wonders fol lowing (Mark 16:20). A j ourney, with a desire to have an encounter, through these books will jack up your faith in God. Now, note that ev ery book in the bible h as a lot to say about Jesus and so should be equally read along with the above books of the bible. However, the above books ex pose you to the Lords t eachings, miracles, signs and wonders and teach you how to exercise this acquired knowledge and get re sults. I n conclusion, with out faith it is impos sible to please God. T herefore, it is very important that you know, understand and believe in the au thor and finisher of y our faith. Start to day if you havent and y our future will be full of signs and wonders.

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) incor porates thousands of plants and herbs, all of which offer healing properties. Even orna mental plants that are gr own and known for their lovely flowers also have a place in TCM. One example is Jin Y in Hua or the Lonicera flower more commonly known as honeysuckle. Youve most likely seen honeysuckle growing alongside the road or creeping up fences as ornamental plants. But these colorful plants are more than just a pretty decoration they have many practical uses as well. Now is your chance to learn more about the humble hon eysuckle. What Is Honeysuckle? Honeysuckle r efers to the genus Lonicera (family Caprifoliaceae), which includes about 200 plant species. They grow as shrubs or bushes or crawling vines. Honeysuckles can be either deciduous or evergreen, especially those growing in warmer regions. Honeysuckle thrives in almost every state in the U.S. Theyre native to temperate zones of both hemi spheres and can also be found growing in southern Asia, the Himalayas and even North Africa. Honeysuckle flowers, which are yellow to bright red, are known for their lovely fra grance and sweet nectar. They are heat-tol erant and make a lovely addition to any gar den. Honeysuckle plants are known for their versa tility and abundance, which makes gr owing and caring for them easy. Take note, howev er, that climbing hon eysuckle varieties can pr oduce red berries that are loved by birds but are toxic to humans. If ingested, you may experience side effects such as stomach upset, vomiting, diarrhea and nausea. Two popular subspe cies of honeysuckle are American honeysuckle and Japanese honey suckle. The American native trumpet hon eysuckle, or Lonic era sempervirens, is a well-behaved, nonin vasive plant in many U.S. ar eas. In contrast, many states consider Japanese honeysuckle, or Lonicera japonica, to be an invasive species. Mexican honeysuckle, on the other hand, is not really honeysuckle. Also known as Justicia spicigera or desert hon eysuckle, its actually r elated to the shrimp plant, another bloom popular in Central Texas. Uses of Honeysuckle The honeysuckle plant itself, whether in vine or shrub form, is of ten grown for decorative purposes because its aesthetically pleasing, brightens up any landscape and attracts wildlife. Honeysuckle shrubs are often used to build hedges. Meanwhile, raw hon eysuckle, as well as pr oducts made from it, such as honeysuckle tea and honeysuckle oil, ar e known for their medicinal benefits. As mentioned, honeysuckle has long been used in Chinese medicine. It is just one of several flowers used medicinally in TCM. How Can Honeysuckle Benefit You? In TCM, the honey suckle flower is com monly used to help ease the flu, colds and sore throat. According to Science Alert, this plant has the ability to prevent the influenza vi rus from replicating. An animal study published in the jour nal Cell Re search supports this, as it found that honeysuckle, when combined with a plant micr oRNA called MIR2911, was able to suppress swine flu and bird flu viruses effectively. Xiao Er Ke Chuan Ling Oral Liquid (KCL), an herbal preparation that uses honeysuckle and nine other plants, was found to help treat acute bronchitis in children. A study in the Chinese Journal of Integrated Traditional and Western Medicine said KCL has antiviral, antibacterial and potent pharmaco logical actions. Honeysuckle was also found to have wound-healing prop erties in rat models, accor ding to the BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine jour nal. Aside fr om showing antimicrobial activi ty against Escherichia coli (E. coli), Staphy lococcus epidermidis, Staphylococcus aureus, Candida albicans and Candida tropicalis, an ointment prepared with honeysuckle extract exhibited potent wound healing capacity as evi denced by the wound contraction in the exci sion wound model. How to Grow Honeysuckle As mentioned, hon eysuckle is a versatile plant it can gr ow in different types of soil, and although it prefers full sun, it can also thrive with some shade. You can grow honey suckle as ground cover or in containers, which is per fect if you live in a small home or apart ment. In addition, you can train honeysuckle to fill a trellis or scale a fence as a crawling vine. Gardeners World offers the following tips to help you grow honey suckle at home: If your honeysuck le is a climber, you can position the roots in a cool, shady place, but be sure their climbing stems have access to sunlight to mimic their natural wood land habitat Climbers need sup port when theyre young, so secur e them with galva nized wires and use a gar den cane to lead the stems to them Berries, which carry honeysuckle seeds, are produced by climbers. However, birds may be attracted to these seeds, so if you want, r emove the seeds from the berries. (This can be messy.) Leave the seeds in a cold frame or put them in the refrigerator over winter so they will germinate Shrubby honey suckle varieties must be pruned af ter theyve flowered, while ever green types that grow as a tight hedge can be trimmed during summer Honeysuckle Recipes: How to Make Honeysuckle Tea Ther e are numerous recipes that make use of the sweetness of honeysuckle nectar. Accord ing to Mother Nature Network, the blooms can be incorporated into sorbets, syrups, jelly and even cupcakes. However if you want to get the benefits of honeysuckle easily (and without the added cal ories), you can drink honeysuckle tea. Aside fr om its potential health benefits, honeysuckle tea is also a de licious and unique beverage you may enjoy. Her es an easy recipe to make honeysuckle iced tea: Honeysuckle Tea Ingredients: A handful of fresh honeysuckle flowers 4 cups of water Ice cubes Procedure: 1. Harvest flowers, looking for those that are already open. Pluck them at the base to make sure their nectar is retained and place in a large mason jar. 2. Bring the water to a boil, then re move from heat. W ait two minutes before pouring it into the jar. 3. Let the mixture steep and cool to room tempera ture. 4. Serve over ice cubes. Store any remaining tea in the refrigerator. How to Dry and Store Honeysuckle If you dont always have access to fresh honeysuckle, or you dont want the hassle of harvesting honey suckle flowers daily to make tea, you can dry the blossoms. Here are some tips from GardenGuides.com: Harvest the flowers in the morning, select ing fully formed blos soms that are about to open. They should be elongated, not the trumpet shape of ma ture blooms. Old, fully opened flowers may not have as many active chemical compounds as immatur e ones. Small, tightly closed buds will work, too. Spread the flowers out on a tray and avoid crowding; cover them with layers of cheesecloth. Put the tray in a place with low humidity and good air cir culation for a few days to a week. Dry the flowers un til they are brittle and br eak apart easily. Once dried, store the flowers in an opaque, airtight container. Maintain them in a cool place. Keep them out of direct light to avoid damaging the chemical compounds and essential oils. Honeysuckle Essential Oil Made fr om the flowers, honeysuckle essential oil is one of the most popular products de rived from this plant. Aside fr om its medicinal applications, which are acquired via topical use or inhalation, this oil is also popularly used in cosmetic and bath products, exfoliators and even massage oils. Organic Facts provides an extensive list of the uses of this oil, from hair care to skin care, and even for diseases like diabetes. However, some caution must be considered before us ing honeysuckle oil. For example, it may cause r edness, irritation and photosensitivity, which may lead to sunburn. Diabetics who are taking blood sugar-lower ing medications must use it sparingly because it can cause danger ous ly low blood sugar levels. Remember to exer cise caution when using any essential oil. Dilute it with a safe carrier oil before use and always do a skin patch test to check for allergies first.Building off the success of last summers technology programs, the Putnam County Library Sys tem is moving the bar one notch higher in 2018.

Coming off the heels of 2017s catastrophic Atlantic hurricane season, with 17 named storms, 10 hurricanes and 6 major hurricanes, emergency ofcials are again re minding residents to be vigilant this year Experts predict the upcoming hurricane season could be aver age, however Floridi ans should continue to pr epare for a major storm. Putnam County is urging residents to take steps now to help keep their fami lies safe during severe weather In Putnam County, hurricane hazards may include heavy rainfall, high winds, inland ooding and tornadoes. Some haz ards may come with little to no war ning. Residents are encour aged to develop a fam ily communication plan, decide on a meet ing location during an emer gency, and prepare a disaster go-kit to include important personal, medical and legal documents. Res idents should also be awar e of what to bring to an emergency shelter, including food and water for thr ee days, medication, bed ding, and important documents. Pets at pet-friendly shelters must be transported in their own carriers and must be up-todate on vaccines, so its important to prepare for pets now. However evacuating to an emergency shelter should always be a last r esort. All resi dents, especially those living in manufactur ed homes, should have a safe shelter plan before an emergency strikes, to include access to a friend or relatives site-built, for tied home 24 hours a day. Those living in manufactur ed homes should be sure they have ample time to get to their designat ed safe space when sever e weather is pre dicted. T o be notied quickly of weather emergen cies, residents should pur chase a battery-powered NOAA weather radio.B3 Special to the Courier Journal Summer BreakSpot Stops CRESCENT CITY Miller Middle School 101 S.
