Putnam County Sher iffs Ofce detectives arrested and charged forty-six year-old David Shannon Hudson, of Palatka, with 20 counts of possession of child pornography following a cyber-tip to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. During the investiga tion, detectives found Hudson paid monthly for a Dropbox account, which contained videos of child pornography. Children in the videos were believed to range in ages from infant to under twelve-years-old. None of the videos were created by Hudson. On Friday, June 29 detectives conducted a search of Hudsons 108 Sunset Lane residence and did not nd computers or recording devices. Hudson told detectives he used a cellphone to access his Dropbox account. It is reprehensible for anyone to believe that watching sexually exploited children is acceptable, Sheriff Gator DeLoach said. This is not a victimless crime. As long as there are those who choose to consume this vulgarity, all children are at risk. We will continue to be proactive in investigating, arrest ing and charging those who exploit children. Hudson was arrested and taken to the Putnam County Jail. He is held on $200,000 bond. At this time, this remains an active investigation and no other information is available.

Butch was always one to try to show everyone up. There was never an end to what he would brag that he could do. Thats why what he claimed that day didnt surprise us. I watched a man walk a tightrope last night on tv, Butch said. Yeah. He was really good, Buster, Butchs brother, said. Well, I could walk a tightrope just as well if I wanted to, Butch said. Bet you couldnt, Buster replied. If we had one, Id show you, Butch replied. Well, we dont have any rope like that, I said. But maybe I can get a board and put it on its edge. We were building on our barn, so we had lots of boards. I found one that was two inches thick, ten inches wide, and about twenty feet long. We stood it on its edge, and Buster held one end, and I held the other. Butch stepped up on it. He had only taken one step when he fell off. I knew you couldnt do it, Buster said. Thats because theres no real motivation to stay on, Butch said. This is no challenge. The guy on tv last night walked high above the ground. He had motivation to stay on to not get hurt. Thats true, Buster said. If you fall off, youll only fall ten inches. Big deal. If we tried to set it up high off of the ground, my dad would kill me, I said. I know, Buster replied. Lets set it up over the manure pit. That would give Butch motivation to not fall off. Butch agreed that it would be motivation, and I felt it wouldnt be too dangerous. So Buster walked his end around the manure pit. Buster and I set the board up, and Butch was just about ready to step onto it when Buster stopped him. Wait a minute, Buster said. The guy on tv last night was carrying a girl on his shoulders. If you feel you can do as well, you should carry something. We looked around and couldnt think of anything, and then Butch spied the piglets. They were each about twenty pounds. How about I carry a piglet? Butch asked. They dont weigh near as much as a girl, Buster said. How about two piglets? Butch replied. We all agreed that would be a reasonable feat. So we caught two piglets. They were squealing and squirming as Butch tucked one under each arm. He was now ready for the challenge. With Buster and me holding the ends of the board tight against the ground above the manure pit, Butch stepped out onto it. He wobbled, but regained his balance and took a step. He wobbled a bit more than the first time, but regained his balance. As he started to take the next step, one piglet started to squeal and wiggle harder. This upset the other one, and it did the same. Butch tried to take a step, but with the wiggling piglets, he was wobbling so much he knew he wouldnt make it. Realizing he was in trouble, he must have decided he could run across the board. He took a few quick steps, but this just took him to the deepest part of the pit. He was wobbling a little more on each step, and then he missed the board altogether. But he was leaning so far forward trying to run, that he didnt drop straight down into the manure that would have come to about his waist. Instead, he face-planted with one piglet still under each arm. The squealing piglets wriggled free and swam to the edge. Butch came up sputtering. Buster called out. Hey Butch, I bet youre glad we put the board over the manure pit so you had a soft landing and werent hurt. I think I would have rather been hurt.

Just like fire drills, pets need consideration when preparing for unexpected fire emergencies. Taking preventable measures now can both save your home and your pet. Many times our pets can cause a fire if we dont take the proper steps. Pet Fire Safety Tips Extinguish open flames. Pets are curious and certainly not cautious. Wagging tails haphazardly knock over candles. Curious kitties will paw at sizzling grease, quickly sending a kitchen up in flames. Remove knobs from the stove. When not in use, they will not accidentally get turned on. Consider flameless candles for ambiance and backup lighting in the event of a power outage. Replace glass water bowls with metal or plastic. Outside on wooden decks, they can heat up and actually start a fire. Have leashes and collars stored near the entrance of your home. When away, have your pets in the main living area for easy rescue. Secure young pets when away from home. This can help avoid fire hazards. Pet kennels or in a pet-proofed room are options. Fire alert window clings help firefighters identifying the room your pets are located and identify the number of pets in the home. Add one to the window of the room you keep your pets when you are away. Keep it updated with the number of pets who reside with you and your current phone number. Have a plan when you are home. Know which family members will be responsible for each pet. The Putnam County Courier Journal welcomes your letters to the Editor. Letters should be brief and legibly written.

Summit St., Crescent City, FL 32112 or FAX to 386-698-1994, or E-mail to pccjnews@gmail.com Letters to the Editor A Sense of BalanceDaris Howard Did that Come From?Aid and Abet Aid and abet is a common enough expression but, whilst aid is wellknown, what does abet mean ex actly? The word derives from the French abeter to hound, which itself derives from the Norse beita to cause to bite. The phrase aid and abet was coined in the late 18th century, by which time the term abet had lost its original cause to bite meaning. An early example of its use dates from 1798, when George Washing ton included it in a letter, first published in Writings, 1893. He didnt appear to have any b etter opinion of the French than that of the US administration con cerning the Gallic reluctance to aid and abet the war in Iraq: My mind is not a little agitated by the outrageous conduct of France towards the United States, and at the inimitable conduct of its partisans, who aid and abet their measures. Bear baiting, or as it was first called bear abetting, was a popular en tertainment in England between the 16th and 19th centuries. It took place in pits in bear gardens, in which tethered bears were torn to pieces by trained bulldogs. Such pits were commonplace and some still ex ist, although they are of course no longer in use. This sport wasnt viewed with the distaste we now have for animal cruelty Queen Elizabeth I con doned the practice by attending baitings, one of which resulted in 13 dead bears. The Elizabethan writer Robert Laneham described the scene: It was a sport very pleasant to see, to see the bear, with his pink eyes, tear ing after his en emies approach... and when he was loose to shake his ears twice or thrice with the blood and the slaver hanging about his physiog nomy. So, if you plan to help someone, aid them by all means, but no bit ing please. F rom the Phase Finder: http:// www.phrases.org. uk/. Did that Did that Did that Come Come Come Come From? From? From?

Quite a mix of stuff for you this month, but before I get into it, I must first make a correction and offer an apology. The photo of the handsome fellow in the blue shirt swinging a pickleball racket in my last column, should have been identi fied as John Garrett, not Her nan Enriquez; but you gotta admit, they do look a lot alike. Sorry, guys. I first heard about Help ing Hands of Welaka when the W elaka Womans Club put out a flier to their members asking for help gathering enough school supplies to fill backpacks for 105 kids in Welaka, Fruitland, and Georgetown What caught my interest was that this effort is a local group doing something to help local kids. So I talk ed to one of the ladies in the W omans Club who was helping to collect the school supplies and cash donations, and she put me in touch with a lady named Harriet VanSlyke. I learned that Harriet, along with just three other ladies, Teryl Mims, Cyn thia Washington, and Patricia McCoy, are truly trying to help some local kids have what they need to start back to school, but to make life a little better for anyone in our com munity who might just need a temporary help ing hand. This local group pr ovides free meals a couple times a month at the Pavilion right next to the W elaka Town Hall; they take snack boxes around to senior citizens; and they hold yard sales sev eral times a year to raise money to help families who experience a variety of personal bereavements. And they always help with the Welaka Christmas Pa rade activities. These four ladies work hard all year, not just at the holidays, and Harri et says they do it out of love. Just love. But all the love in the world doesnt pay the bills. So, if you would like to help your neighbors right here at home, consider making a donation to this worthy cause by writing a check to Harriet VanSlyke, with the notation for Helping Hands of Welaka, and mail it to PO Box 592, Welaka, FL 32193. If you would like more informa tion on other ways you might help, call Harriet at 631-764-2308. The other evening at Trivia, a lady asked me to include something here asking people to be espe cially vigilant and to watch for wildlife near our roadways. She was specifically r eferring to 309, where for some reason, the Sandhill Cranes and their young have been grazing unusu ally close to the side of the road. And as we all know these silly creatures rare ly look in either direction before stepping onto the pavement and sometimes take forever to decide if they really want to cross. She said that she had recently seen a small fawn right at the very edge of the road, so close to the traffic going by that had it gotten up and stumbled, it could have fallen right in front of a vehicle with disastrous results. Just last evening, I had to wait a minute or so while six or so turkey hens and their young waddled across, hoping nobody came fly ing up and rammed me from behind. And the turtles are also on the move, seems like wer e seeing more of them on the roads recently than in past years. So please, keep an eye out for all these guys. Connies request remind ed me of an ugly experience I had recently that still makes my blood boil. I was driving on Geor ge town Denver on my way to Crescent City, a big white pickup right behind me. I suddenly spied a tur tle just ahead and about two feet inside my lane. With the guy in the pickup right up on my bumper, and the roadside very nar row, I couldnt stop immediately, so I swerved out to miss her thinking to turn around as soon as I could to go back and help her across. But as I glanced back, I saw the jerk in the truck deliber ately run right over her! We were the only two vehicles around so he could have avoided hitting her as easily as I did, but he made absolutely no ef fort to do so, just ran right over her! I was so mad and so up set that I wanted to stop and go back and confront him but you know what? I didnt. And you know why? I was actually afraid to. I am no longer a spring chicken, and in this day and age, on a lonely coun try road with nobody else in sight, and of course no cell phone service, yes, I was afraid to stop and do what I know in my heart would have been the right thing. And I keep think ing I might at least have pulled over and maybe gotten his tag number, or something, but I didnt, and I dont know who I ended up being angrier with myself or that guy! So anyway, as the lady asked me to ask you, please watch out for our furry, feathered, scaly, or hard-shelled friends and try to avoid them if you possibly can! They need all the help they can get just to survive. Shaking off that bad memory, and on to happi er things. Well, if you didnt get a chance to check out the new Artisans Market in Welaka last month, mark your calendars now for what looks like becom ing something special.

Almost everyone who lives or visits over on this side of the tracks knows Delores Dee Craft, ei ther as a friend or through the many contributions she has made to the com munity either personal ly, through her business, Dees House of Beauty, or working with the Welaka Womans Club, an orga nization near and dear to her heart. Dees is a closeknit family, always there for each other, especially through the rough patch es. But as with most families, even when they live near each other life gets so busy and time goes by so quickly, that they just dont seem to find the time to see each other, except maybe when they want or need something. So, when Dees husband, Frankie, passed away recently, her brother David, the baby of the family, said he wanted them to make it a point to get together at least once a month to talk and just catch up with each other. And what better way than to get together than over food. Dee told me that at their most recent get together at Renegades they must have been there for two hours or more before and after their meal laugh ing and talking and just enjoying each other. She said, It is such a joy to have this plus in my life, and it gives us all something to look forward to. Just staying in touch and strengthening fami ly bonds, sounds good to me. Sam and Elaine Carr two well-known folks in our area, have been get ting in some time with the grandkids, including a trip to Daphne, Alabama, with daughter Kelly Carrs two kids, Marshall and Lorelei Carr Pilger. They went to visit Sams sis ter Sylvia Walding, who is recovering from surgery. Sam said that the kids, were her best medicine. And of course, proud dad Sam couldnt help but do a little of bragging about his daughter, Dr. Martha Kelly Carr, and the recent publication of her book, The Rhetorical Invention of Diversity. Ill have more Granny and Grampy Cam stuff next time, lots of kids vis iting and grandparents traveling, so watch for it. Not much to brag about in local fishing news, but well-known personal trainer and avid fisher man Troy Henry and his uncle, Corey Williams recently shared a short, but fun fishing trip to the Keys. A Fathers Day pres ent to Corey, the trip included a two-night stay in Marathon and a day of fishing on the charter boat Running Gun. Fish ing at about 260 feet, the pair caught a mixed bag of yellow tail, mangrove snapper, strawberry grou per, and some nice yellow jack.

Royal and make it accessible to the public are chronicled in an article from the Courier Journal of July 7, 1982. Part of that article ap pears below. Development will open Mt. Royal to public In the case of the Mount Royal Indian Mound, development doesnt mean de struction. The countys recent approval of a proposal to develop part of the site wont mean that highrise condominiums will tower over what was once a T imucua temple complex. Or that the prehistoric temple mound will be leveled to support a shopping center parking lot. What the develop ment will mean is that thousands of local residents who have never had the chance to see the mound, which has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places, will nally have a chance to enjoy it rsthand. Its all part of a plan by Dr. C. Paul Wilcox, the latest in a long line of the prehistoric sites owners, to share his gem with the pub lic. In building the 24acre subdivision near the mound, every effort will be taken to pr eserve the scenic beauty that has remained intact since the Timucua Indians worshipped there thousands of years ago. The towering oaks that once looked down upon the Indi an ceremonies will continue their timeless vigil, this time overlooking the stately homes designed to enhance the landscape. Power lines will run under ground to help preserve the natural look of the area. And of course, the Indian mound will re mainin a restored state. Were only talking about 25 acres out of a total of 254 that comprise Mount Roy al, Dr. Wilcox said of the section that has been earmarked for development. They estimated that the developments nearest point to the prehistoric mound will be about 1,000 feet. In addition, Dr. Wil cox noted that the mound itselfone of the lar gest in the statehas been undergoing a facelift in r ecent years, compliments of the Northeast Florida Anthropological Society. The development, along with the efforts of the society, is part of recent efforts to convert the prehistor ic site into a spectacular sight that can be enjoyed by everyone.

A4 Hi everyone! Ste phen here, reporting on one of our activities from troop and Pack 957. We are sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and so we decid ed to beautify the church grounds. They brought in a whole bunch of bags of mulch and put it in the parking lot. Then we decided that we would put it around the owerbeds all around the church. There are a lot of owerbeds and shrub beds at the church but we worked fast! We hauled bags and opened them and poured the mulch around the owers and shrubs. I used a rake, but I noticed one of the leaders could really haul mulch and work fast. She had gloves on and was spread ing the mulch with h er hands even fast er than I could do it with a rake. I asked her if she wanted a rake but she s aid, No,thanks. Ive done this for so many years that I work faster with my hands to spread the mulch and I get it right where I want it. Of course! They have a landscape business so she re ally has done a lot of this kind of work! It was fun working together. One of the scout leaders asked me how I felt about doing the project and I replied that it made me feel good to help. Then I was asked, why? I had to think a minute and then I said, its be cause I dont want someone out there doing it all by himself. If we all work together then we get more done and we get it done faster so it helps everyone. We do lots of different things for s couts. If you want to be involved, please come to scouts on Wednes day nights at 6 p.m. for boys age 11-18 and the second and fourth Wednesday afternoons at 4:30 p.m. for the boys age 8-10. We meet at the Church of Je sus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Hope to see you there! You can also go to www. beascout.org for more information.

St. Johns River State College has received $1.38 million dollars as part of Governor Scotts Florida Job Growth Grant pro gram to add advanced manufacturing train ing to the Colleges list of offerings. Designed to train students to be part of the next generation of engineering technicians, the new SJR State programs will include an Associate in Science program as well as college credit certificate programs in mecha tronics and robotics as well as non-degree training for produc tion technicians. According to the Florida Chamber Foun dation By The Numbers, Manufacturing continues to be a leader in helping Florida diversify its economy and create new jobs. Floridas manufacturing has grown 3.4 percent over the last year. And in the last four years, Floridas manufacturing has continued to grow at a rate more than three times higher than the nation overall. With this in mind, SJR State President Joe Pickens is grateful for the role that SJR State gets to play in preparing students for new jobs in this field. St. Johns River State College appreciates the funding received from the Governors Florida Job Growth Grant program and is honored to be one of the recipients, said Pickens. The grant will support the es tablishment of a new Engineering-Ad vanced Manufactur ing program that was designed in partnership with our regional businesses to help meet their demand for a trained and skilled workforce to support the production and automation needed in todays advanced manufacturing envi ronments. This initiative demonstrates our strategic commitment to build sustainable, high skilled/high wage opportunities for the citizens and businesses of Northeast Florida, further diversifying our local and state economy. The Associate in Science in Engineering T echnology will pre pare students for employment in advanced manufacturing as process and production technicians, industrial machinery mechanics, quality assurance technicians, programmable logic control technicians and operators, and industrial engineering techni cians. The core classes of the engineering technology program align with the national Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) Production Technician Certifica tion. T he mechatronics certificate program is part of the Engineering Technology de gree program and the Advanced Manufac turing specialization d esigned to prepare students for positions in industrial engineering, maintenance and technology. T he mechatronics certificate program, part of the Engineering Technology degree program and the Advanced Manufactur ing specialization, is d esigned to prepare students for employment in the areas of industrial engineer ing, maintenance and technology or provides supplemental training for persons previously or currently employed in these occupations. The content includes instruction in ad vanced manufactur ing equipment maintenance techniques, operation of various industrial compo nents, tools and instrumentation, quality and control test ing, material handling protocols, robotics applications, hydraulics and pneumatics. Upon completion of this program, the student will be able to install, maintain and troubleshoot auto mated environments, general robot systems and simulators. Vice President for Workforce Develop ment Anna Lebesch stated that this grant and the partnerships with the local manufacturing community are an exciting opportunity for the youth and citizens of our region to train in a growing and diverse industry. Core classes and non-degree boot camps will begin this fall and will be taught on SJR States Palatka campus. Expansion of course and program offerings is planned for the Clay County campus in 2019.

You probably have at least one box of baking soda in your home right now. If your e like many Americans, you might have a box in your pantry for baking, one in your refrigerator to absorb odors and another under your kitchen sink to use for cleaning. What you might not have considered is that baking soda can be used for health purposes, too, so you might want to stash another box in your medicine cabinet. What Exactly Is Baking Soda? Its 100 percent sodium bicarbonate, which can be used as a leavening agent in baked goods. When mixed with an acid, baking soda reacts, making bubbles and giving off carbon dioxide gas, which causes dough to rise. Anecdotal reports throughout history suggest that many civiliza tions used forms of baking soda when making bread and other foods that required rising. In its natural form, baking soda is known as nahcolite, which is part of the natural mineral natron. Na tron, which contains large amounts of sodium bicarbonate, has been used since ancient times. And no, you dont need to get aluminum-free bak ing soda (you are confusing that with baking powder), as baking soda is already aluminum free. For instance, the Egyptians used na tron as a soap for cleansing purposes. However, it wasnt until 1846 that Dr. Austin Church and John Dwight began to manufacture and sell the compound we know as baking soda today. By the 1860s, bak ing soda was featured in published cook books but was still primarily known as a cooking additive. By the 1920s, however, its versatility was expanded on and by the 1930s it was widely advertised as a proven medical agent. 11 Ways to Use Baking Soda for Your Health You can purchase a box of baking soda for under $1, making it one of the least expensive home reme dies to keep on hand. In addition to using it for minor accidents and injuries, baking soda can become a part of your regular hygiene routine. 1. Natural Deodorant If you want to avoid the parabens and aluminum found in many deodorants and antiperspirants, try a pinch of baking soda mixed with water instead. This simple paste makes an effective and simple natural deodorant. You can also simply brush some dry baking soda under your arms. 2. Insect Bites and Poison Ivy Apply a paste made of baking soda and water to insect bites to help relieve itching. You can also try rubbing the dry powder onto your skin. This is also effective for itchy rashes and poison ivy. Baking soda helps to relieve minor skin irritation and itching by neutralizing toxins and irritants on your skins surface. 3. Heartburn, Indi gestion, and Ulcer Pain Most over-the-counter antacids contain some form of bicarbonate. Baking soda works by immediately neutralizing stomach acid, helping to re lieve heartburn, indigestion and even ulcer pain. I have personally recommended this to many, including family members, and have been surprised how remarkably effective it is. Dosing is typical ly teaspoon fully dissolved in a half a glass of water, taken every two hours (do not take more than seven teaspoons in 24 hours, or three teaspoons if youre over 60). This should only be used as an occasional (not chronic) treatment, however, and be careful not to consume excessive amounts, which can cause serious elec trolyte and acid/base imbalances. 4. Foot Soak and Exfoliator Add three table spoons of baking soda to a tub of warm water for an invigorating foot soak. You can scrub your feet with a baking soda paste for additional exfoliation. A paste made from three parts of baking soda combined with one part water can be used as an exfoliator for your face and body, too. Its natural, inexpensive and gentle enough to use every day. 5. Relaxing Soak Baking soda and apple cider make a wonderful spa-like bath for soaking. It also cleans the tub and the drain, as a bonus! 6. Hand Cleanser Mix three parts baking soda with one part of water to make a natural hand cleanser that will scrub away dirt and neutralize odors. 7. Splinter removal Add a tablespoon of baking soda to a small glass of water, and then soak the affected area twice a day. Many splinters will come out on their own after a couple of days using this treatment. 8. Sunburn Remedy Add cup of baking soda to lukewarm bathwater, then soak in the tub for natural relief. When you get out, let your skin air dry, rather than toweling off the excess baking soda, for extra r elief. You can also add a mixture of baking soda and water to a cool compress and apply it to the sunburn directly. 9. Enhanced Sports Performance Distance runners have long engaged in a practice known as soda doping -or taking baking soda capsules -before races to enhance performance, a measure thats thought to work similarly to carbohydrate loading. Its also been shown to improve speed among swimmers. While I dont suggest you try this at home, its another example of baking soda benefits. Researchers noted: Essentially, sodium bicarbonate is an alkali substance that increases the pH of the blood. This seems to reduce and off set the acidity pro duced in the muscles during intense, an aerobic exercise that produces lactic acid most quickly, such as fast running or swimming. 10. Tooth and Gum Paste Baking soda has a mild abrasive action that helps to remove plaque and polish, clean, and deodor ize your teeth. One r eview of data from five controlled clini cal studies found that toothpaste containing baking soda enhanced plaque removal effectiveness of tooth brushing to a significantly greater extent than brush ing with a non-baking soda toothpaste. Baking soda also has antibacterial activity and has been found to kill Streptococcus mutans bacteria a significant contribu tor to tooth decay. For an incredibly effective tooth and gum paste, use a mixture of six parts of baking soda to one part of sea salt. Place them in a blender and mix for 30 seconds, then place in a container to use. Wet the tip of your index finger and place a small amount of the salt and soda mixture on your gums. Starting with the upper outside gums and then the inside of the upper, followed by the lower outside of the gums then the lower inside, rub the mixture onto your teeth and gums. Spit out the excess. After 15 minutes rinse your mouth. This mixture is incredibly effective at killing bacteria. You need to exert some caution in this area though as many believe baking soda can be too abrasive on your enamel, and Dr. Curatola believes that killing the oral microbiome may be highly counterproductive. 11. Teeth whitener For a natural way to whiten your teeth, crush one ripe strawberry and mix it with 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. Spread the mixture onto your teeth and leave on for five minutes. Then brush your teeth and rinse. This meth od should be used no more than once a week, as excessive use could potential ly damage your tooth enamel.Animal Rescue Konsortium, or ARK Animal Rescue of Central Florida, is a local animal rescue service that promotes fostering and adoption of many types of ani mals, including dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, birds, parrots, rabbits, pot bellied pigs and the occasional ferret and other pets. They work with local people and agencies to place the animals they have into great homes. Weve been in the area for ten years and in Crescent City since 2011, Ginny Oakwood, who is in charge of the cen ter, said. We take in surrenders or strays and have also been working with Putnam County Animal Control to help adopt out some of their animals. We have a no kill policy and are working with Animal Contr ol to help them do the same. Of course, if youre interested in adopting a pet, there is a screening process everyone must com plete. She also is a member of the Putnam County Animal Advisory Committee. Oakwood, who has always had a passion for animals, recent ly rescued a female black lab mix and received a surprise a few days later. Shes an absolutely great dog, Oakwood said, and she gave birth to nine beautiful puppies that will be ready for adoption around August first. Besides these lab mix puppies, ARK also has many other animals ready for current a doption. These in clude four kittens and four adult dogs. Weve been pretty busy with adoptions from January to May, Oakwood said. Weve adopted out thirty-two dogs, sixteen cats, one rabbit, one pig, and one ferret. A couple of Animal Rescue Konsortiums adoptive parents posted about their experiences on ARKs Facebook page. We recently adopted our rescue from Ark, Nanci Nolte Ferri said. We loved how these folks were so caring and truly inspired by helping rescues find forever homes. I [found my rescue] foster pup, Buck, [at ARK], Amber Verner said. Hes been such a joy... In addition to rescues and adoptions, ARK also operates a kennel and a thrift store at their current location of 1952 U.S. Highway 17 south. The address is between Pomona Park and Crescent City. The site includes three acres of land with exercise areas, boarding facilities and they also offer obedience classes. Our animals ar e spayed and neutered, Oakwood said. They also have heartworm protection and have been groomed. Of course, these services are offered for other pets at our facility, also. According to ARKs Facebook page, they are always open and available to take in animals who are in need. If youd like to check out some photos of the animals theyve adopted out or still need homes, or to simply get more information about the Animal Rescue Konsortium, visit their facebook page: https:// www.facebook.com/ arkrescuecf/, or you can check out what animals are available for adoption or fostering on their website: www.arkanimalres cue.com.

Floridas waters and beaches are not only popular with people, but are also key habitats for manatees and sea turtles. More of these iconic species live here than in any other state. The manatee and sea turtle decals, created by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), are a fun way for people to support the research, rescue and management efforts that conserve these species. Every July, the FWC introduces new manatee and sea turtle decals that are available with a $5 donation. The waterproof decals are designed to look good on a vehicles bumper or the side of a boat. Get them when registering or re-registering a vehicle or boat at local tax collectors ofces across the state. Florida provides critical habitats for manatees and sea turtles, said Carol Knox, who leads the FWCs Imperiled Species Management Section. Public support is making a difference in helping us conserve these imperiled species. Please get these decals to show your support. Over 6,000 manatees swim in the states coastal waters, rivers and freshwater springs, and about 20,000 sea turtles nest each year on Floridas Atlantic and Gulf coast beaches. The decals help fund manatee and sea turtle conservation efforts. For example, when someone calls the FWCs Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922) to report an injured, entangled or sick manatee or sea turtle, FWC staff works with partners to respond and rescue the animal. The decals also spotlight important conservation issues: The Im making a difference manatee decal shows several manatees, including a mother and calf. The back of the decal notes that the manatee is now classied as a threatened species, rather than an endangered species, under the federal Endangered Species Act. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced this change in early 2017, a signal that efforts to conserve the states marine mammal are succeeding. The Shield your lights for a sea turtle friendly night sea turtle decal shows an adult female loggerhead on the beach against a background of darkened buildings.The back of the decal reports nearly 97,000 loggerhead nests were counted during the 2017 sea turtle nesting season. It reminds people to manage beachfront lights to protect nesting and hatchling sea turtles during nesting season, which continues through the end of October, and offers other tips on helping sea turtles.
