This summer, Putnam@Heart, a project for writing stories to add to the annals of local his tory, is coming to a close. The celebrative event is a Picnic Fest. Winners of the story writing contest will be announced. This will be held at the Cres cent City Public Library, 610 Summit Street, on Friday, August 10 from 6 to 9 p.m. All are welcome to come to this picnic and folk concert. The evening will begin at 6 p.m. with an inside potluck picnic in the meeting room at the library. Please bring a plate of picnic nger foods to share. Then, beginning at 6:45 p.m., Lori Baxter and Sam Brown, local musicians, will be in the main room of the library, performing songs they and others have writ ten about life in Putnam County. Woven in and through the concert will be presentations by the story writing contest winners. The Picnic Fest was originally scheduled for the Little Blue House, a historical preservation project of the womans Club. Instead, it will be held at the Crescent City Library, which was the in-case-of-rain alterna tive location. The reason for this is a forecasted 60 percent possibility of rain that day and the proba bility of an accompany ing abundance of mos quitoes. Donations will be ap preciated to cover ex penses of the Picnic Fest. Putnam@Heart has been a collaborative ef fort of GFWC Crescent City Womans Club, Mul ticultural Arts Guild Inc., Putnam County Li brary System and the Arts Council of Greater Palatka. For further in formation, please call Judi White 386-5696956.The month of August will feature artwork created in The Larimer Arts Centers Arts Underground. The opening reception was held on Friday, August 3. The Arts Underground Painters Group show will run through the month of August and be available for viewing between the hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thurs day, and during special e vents through Thursday, August 23. The address is 216 Reid Street. The lower level of the Larimer Arts Center has long been an arts haven. Since Grace Urquhart taught childrens art in the 50s into the 70s when I attended her classes. says Evelyn Snyder, gal lery Curator. After the P utnam County Library moved and the Arts Coun cil of Greater Palatka be gan residing in the build ing the downstairs area h as been utilized to carry on Urquharts legacy. The lower level was renovated in 2009, adding heating and air conditioning, a handicap entrance and a stage area. The Arts Coun cil of Greater Palatka has o ffered a range of classes, from after school to sum mer childrens camps to a dult classes and work shops as well as music. L ocal artist Patrick Rausch held classes teaching adults to paint. Unfortunately, Rausch moved to New Smyrna Beach. Much too far to commute to teach class es. Rauschs dedicated s tudents were not happy to see him go. From that ending came a new begin ning. Two groups of down stairs adult painters real ized they would miss the c omradery of painting to gether, so they formed the T uesday painting groups known as Arts Under ground Painters Groups. O ne group meets in the morning, the other group in the afternoon, and for a nominal fee they can keep on the tradition and en courage each others cre ativity. A rtists in the morning group artists include: Iris Clerc of Welaka, Thelma Louise Glenn of Cres cent City, Nadya Hizer of P alatka, Vicky Krombach of Lake Como, and Char lotte Woodard of East P alatka. Artists in the afternoon group include: Richard Brooks of Crescent City, Lynda Taylor of Palatka, Candi Bowers of Pomona Park, and Sharon Saple of Orange Park. Arts Council of Greater Palatka is pleased to be able to present these tal ented folks to the public. D espite their modesty, Rausch would be proud of his former students and how far they have come. Viewers might even nd the perfect piece to grace their home, as some of the work will be for sale.

As students get ready for a new school year, the Florida Department of Health reminds parents and caregivers to review their childs immuniza tion record and make sure they have the re quired vaccinations. Vaccinations help de velop immunity to many serious diseases and in fections, and they help keep students healthy and in school, said State Surgeon General and Secretary Dr. Celeste Philip. Making sure your child is fully immunized not only protects them, but it also protects chil dren who cannot receive immunizations for medi cal reasons. I encourage everyone to make sure that their child is up-todate on all their vaccina tions to protect them and any other children at risk for acquiring vaccine-pre ventable diseases. To learn which immu nizations are required for your child, visit the departments School Immunization Require ments page at www. floridahealth.gov/pro grams-and-services/ immunization/chil dren-and-adolescents/ school-immunization-re quirements/index.html. Students entering college should check with the health services at their college regarding immu nization requirements. The department makes it easy to keep track of your childs immunization record through Florida SHOTS at www. shotsusers.com, a free, statewide, centralized online immunization reg istry that helps health care providers, parents, and schools keep track of immunization records to ensure that patients of all ages receive the vaccinations needed to protect them from dan gerous vaccine-prevent able diseases. Florida SHOTS makes it easier to keep up with your childs immunization history even when moving or switching doctors. The Florida Academy of Family Physicians, Flori da Association of Health Plans, Inc., Florida Med ical Association, Florida Osteopathic Medical As sociation, and the Flori da Chapter of American Academy of Pediatrics endorse the registry. If your child is due for a vaccine, please visit your family health care pro vider or one of our health department clinics. Visit www.ImmunizeFlorida. org to learn more about immunizations your child may need or call your local county health department to nd out locations and times for immunization services available near you.

It was graduation week at the university in our small town. Students were finishing up finals and didnt have time to make their own food. Parents were coming into town and wanted to take their college children out for dinner. Because of this, the workers at the fast food restaurants had to work extra hours. And they were exhaustingly busy hours, too. All of this created a tense atmosphere at some of the restaurants, especially those with defined limits on how long it was supposed to be from the time food was ordered to the time it was delivered. John, a friend of mine, was working at a hamburger place that had such a defined limit. The goal was ninety seconds from order to delivery. Though they didnt usually make that time, everything was compared to it. Making matters more intense, managers evaluations were based on the average delivery time. As huge groups came in and the time for delivery went up, the shift managers often grew more and more tense. But worse than taking a long time was getting an order wrong. It was especially bad when something was left out that had been paid for. When this happened, the item was not only provided, but a coupon for a free meal was given. This decreased profits and, in turn, became a negative mark for the manager of that shift. John said that on one particular evening, the line to order food was often out the door. Customers were getting irate, adding to the problem. In addition, a couple of workers had called in sick, leaving the crew short-handed. Every employee there was working as fast as possible, and mistakes were inevitable. A few customers ended up having items missing in their orders, and coupons had to be given. All of this was making the manager tense, and he was becoming terser with the other employees, and his voice was rising. John was one of those loading food onto trays or into sacks, and he caught his share of the managers ire. It was right at that point that the unimaginable happened. A man in a dark business suit, with a lady in a nice evening gown, stepped up to order. From Johns vantage point, he could see those preparing the food, but he was also out near the front counter. As the man ordered, John saw one of the workers reach for the tartar sauce gun. The sauce guns looked like big caulk guns. A worker would pull the trigger just enough to give the right amount of sauce. But the worker didnt get a good grasp on the tartar sauce gun, and it slipped from his grasp. It fell in the worst possible way, with the backside down. The mechanism with the spring that pushed the tartar sauce to the nozzle smashed against the cement floor. When this happened, it almost always shot the sauce onto the ceiling. All of those preparing the food immediately looked up. But John had seen the white stream of sauce pass right by him. He turned to the counter, and to his dismay, he saw it had made a big splotch on the customers suit jacket. The face of the woman next to the man ordering went white, and instantly, everyone in the restaurant, employees and customers alike, went silent. John said the manager just froze and didnt seem to know what to do. But the cashier was a young man named Seth who was known for his quick wit and humor. He looked at the big white splotch on the mans black suit and said, Would you like a chicken sandwich with that? The man suddenly broke into laughter, and after a moment the lady with him joined in. Soon everyone was laughing, the customers in the foyer, the employees, and even the manager. The man and woman received their meals free and were given a washcloth and a coupon for the restaurant to pay for the dry cleaning of the suit. But the main thing that happened was that the tension was eased, and the whole atmosphere in the restaurant changed. Humor has a way of doing that.

National Book Lovers Day Observed each year on August 9, (and sometimes on the first Saturday in November) bibliophiles get to celebrate on National Book Lovers Day! A day for all those who love to read, National Book Lovers Day encourages you to find your favorite reading place, a good book (whether it be fiction or non-fiction) and read the day away. Bibliophile a person who has a great appreciation for or collects books. Lets step back in time for a minute: The very first books used parchment or vellum (calf skin) for the book pages. The book covers were made of wood and often covered with leather. The books were fitted with clasps or straps. Public libraries appeared in the Middle Ages. Books in public libraries were often chained to a bookshelf or a desk to prevent theft. Moving forward: Book manufacturings recent development included digital printing. Book pages are printed using toner rather than ink. Digital printing opens up the possibility of print-on-demand, where no books are printed until after an order is received from a customer. E-books are rapidly increasing in popularity. E-book (electronic book) refers to a book-length publication in digital form. They are usually available through the internet. However, can also be found on CD-ROM and other forms. E-books are read either by computer or via a portable book display device known as an e-book reader, such as a Reader, Nook or Kindle. The Putnam County Courier Journal welcomes your letters to the Editor. Letters should be brief and legibly written. To be published, letters must include the writers signature, printed name, phone number, and hometown. We will NOT print any letters without this information. Address letters to: Editor 320 N. Summit St., Crescent City, FL 32112 or FAX to 386-698-1994, or E-mail to pccjnews@gmail.com When Work Gets TenseDaris Howard Did that Come From?Channel Surfing It is generally accept ed that surfing was first enjoyed by Polynesians in Tahiti and Hawaii. The oral tradition of passing chants, called Meles, from genera tion to generation re cords the practice of surfing in those islands and suggests that it dates back to at least the 15th century. It was first recorded in print in the ships log of the Discovery, which was part of Captain James Cooks ill-fated expedi tion to Hawaii. The log was written in 1779 by Lieutenant James King, who took over the cap taincy of the ship after Cook was killed. Modern-day surfing came to the USA in the 20th century and became very popular amongst the young, es pecially in on the west coast, during the 1960s. When the Beach Boys recorded Surfin USA in March 1963 they could have had no notion that surfing was to become such a widespread term in the language. What started out simply as surfing migrated into other forms. Initially these were activities that mimicked surf boarding. The first was body surfing, which is surfing in the original sense, that is, riding a wave on the sea, but without a board. This was recorded in the Californian newspaper The Oakland Tribune, in February 1939: I went body-surfing at Makupuu with Walter Macfarlane, one of the most skillful men at the sport in the territory. The first use of surf ing to be applied to an activity on land was van surfing. This was explicitly defined in a piece in Time magazine in April 1985: Cars move slowly past the crowd, and when the passengers get restless they van surf (dance on roofs). Soon after that came train surfing here re ferred to in The Wall Street Journal, November 1988: Riding the tops of trains is a stunt pop ular among the poor youths of north Rio. Their counterparts in the wealthy south of the city surf the waves; they surf the trains. The allusions to surfing get progressively less like the original surf boarding as time goes by. In 1989 crowd surfing emerged. Crowd surfing is the carrying overhead of someone by a crowd, usually after diving into the crowd from the stage at a rock gig. The Toronto Globe & Mail had this item in November of that year: The music is a bar rage of stampeding t ime trials inspiring live audiences to ex cesses of stage-diving and crowd-surfing. In November 1986, The Wall Street Journal also recorded channel surfing: Older consumers who initially spurned cabled expansion of prime-time selections now browse confident ly with their new toys, channel-surfing blithely through the evenings. The use of a remote control to switch channels on a TV set is quite different from the versions above as it it doesnt physical ly mimic surfboarding. It is surfing only in a figurative sense in that it alludes to the mov ing easily and smoothly from one place to another. From the Phase Finder: http://www.phras es.org.uk/.

I am so tired of be ing hot! I hate being hot! I hate opening my fr ont door and being hit with a blast of heat and humidity that lit erally takes my breath away! I swear I would pay for just an hour of being r eally cool, may be even cold, just an hour or maybe two with goosebumps even! And I know Im not alone in feeling this way and I know that cool just isnt some thing thats going to happen ar ound here anytime soon. And I know I should be careful what I ask for and grateful for what we dont have, but I am so tired of being hot And while it might sound like a lame excuse, I am so overwhelmed and exhausted by the heat and humidity, I simply cannot get motivated to do much of anything that r equires being outside. And I think my muse has sneaked off to someplace cool without me. So, I dont have much hot of f the presses stuff this time, but Ill do my best to get some readable words on pa per for you. Almost every time Im out on the river, I see men in boats with their dogs, and I rarely make a trip to town without seeing men in their trucks with furry heads sticking out the windows. And every time I see them I think, A man and his dog its a beautiful thing. And sometimes, what makes it even more of a beautiful thing is the way the man and the dog wound up togeth er, like the two Im going to tell you about. It was literally just days after reading Jerrys piece on ARK (Animal Rescue Konsortium) that I was brought a related story of a local rescue that involved members of ARK and a bunch of other won derful caring people. Meet Bill Mace, a nice, quiet local guy who has been pretty lonely since losing his wife a couple of years ago. As much as he loves reading and spending time tending to his crab traps, he was still pretty lonely at the end of the day. One eve ning, Bill was having dinner with some folks including Pat Maden and Charlotte Lord and other ARK mem bers, when Pat got a call fr om Debbie Ballard, a friend who lives out in Lake Como and who had been watching what she knew by now had to be a stray dog wandering around her neighborhood for several days. The dog appeared to be in bad shape, so finally de ciding to take action, Debbie tracked down her friend Pat Maden, who, she knew, was active in ARK, to ask what she should do to get help for this ani mal. And talk about taking action! I dont know all the timing or details, but I do know that between them, they got some meat to gether and went out to find this dog get it into a cage so they could take her to a place where she could be cared for. Poor Jasmine (as she would come to be called) looked a lot like a German Shep herd but was about 25 pounds underweight and looked a mess, so it was really hard to tell. They got her load ed up in Bills truck and took her to Dr. Kampfer who gave her a thorough exam, necessary shots and meds to get rid of the heart worms, fleas, and ticks she was infested with. Then it was on to Crescent City Kennels, local headquarters of ARK, for a bath, some grooming, proper food, a bit of cuddling and a much needed rest in a safe place. Now, it just so happens that Bill Mace had always liked dogs, especially Ger man Shepherds, and had even owned a few over his lifetime, and he started to fall more in love with Jasmine every day when he just went to check on her at the kennel. So, long story short, Bill has adopted the pretty stray that he helped to rescue and after much discussion about a name, the dog was named Jasmine and home she went with Bill. It didnt take long for the two to bond, and you should see Bill when he talks about her. His eyes light up and he smiles, She really is the sweetest dog; shes so pretty, she looks just like a wolf Shes so much company; shes really very good for me. And again I think A man and his dog .it is a beautiful thing. Grannycam Almost anytime grand kids are mentioned, we automatically envision younger kids. So it was a nice surprise to get some photos of Gran ny Mary Dawn Chris topherson and her big kids and grandkids. Mary Dawn splits her time between her home in Kamiah, Idaho, and the other here in Welaka. Recently, sev eral members of Mary Dawns family traveled to Idaho for her grand sons wedding, including her daughter, Dona Rae Lanham, and her granddaughter Mackenzie Lanham, from Bellingham, W ashington. Also there to shar e in the wedding week festivities were Chuck Lanham, sonin-law and father of the groom, from Bell ingham, Washington. Chad Christopher son, Mary Dawns son and Godfather of the gr oom, from Kamiah, Idaho. Chase Lanham, grandson and the groom, from Moscow, Idaho. And last but not least, Ray Christopher son, father-in-law, father and grandfather to these young men, who is fr om Welaka, Bisbee, North Dako ta, and Kamiah, Ida ho. (Somehow, I think Mary Dawn is the only one who understands all these relationships, but this is the way she gave it to me, so you figure it out.) Tom and Debbie Johnson, who live on Dunns Creek, always take advantage of any time they can spend time with their granddaughter Ella, who is now eight years old and lives in Pinegrove, Illinois, and Ella loves her visits here as much as they love having her. And they stay on the go almost the whole time Ella is here, with lots of time at the beach, and even more boat ing on the beautiful St Johns in the familys deck boat. And now something I have to share with you that is not really about this side of the tracks but worth mentioning. You know by now that I love thrift stores, and while I know they ar ent going to be immac ulate like, say Belks or Bealls, I still want them to be clean and or ganized and want to be able to get around the racks and shelves without having to scrunch. Well, for a while, I had just sopped going to the Lee Con lee Store in Palatka. It had gotten to be such a mess that it was just not a nice place to go. BUT The other day I got to town early for an appointment and noticed that they were open at ten after nine when nothing else was, so, what the heck, I stopped in. And WOW! What a difference.. I almost couldnt believe it was the same place. I was so impressed, I just couldnt stop telling the lady working ther e that morning how amazing the change was.. Everything was neatly arranged and organized, and dust ed; not all crammed together and wrin kled. And the ever so lovely lady smiled and talked with me as she checked me out. So, if, like me, you had kind of scratched this thrift stor e off your list, give it another try. I think youll be wowed too. And P.S. I got a nice pair of slacks, a great purse, and the pret tiest blouse for under $4! W ell, thats it Hope fully by next time the water will have gone down a little and Ill have some fish tales for you .. and if you have any, PLEASE share them with me!

Jose here to tell you about fun adven tures that Troop 957 h as. First of all, we want to say thank you for the camping gear do nation that someone b rought us about a month ago. It was very kind of him to do that for us! It will denitely get used! This is a picture of two of our scouts on a camping trip in Utah. We came out west to work with our scout leader for a few weeks and when we do that, we mix fun and adventure with the work. Here, they are experienc ing very cold water a nd really great na ture. Its always nice w hen youve been outside in nature to run across a cool stream where you can stop a bit and relax. We have inter esting things happen a l ot when we take the time to plan and go places. Its great to see the different places in America. On this trip, we ew from Or lando to Salt Lake C ity and then drove to Wyoming. Theres a little town there called Kemmerer. Yup, I spelled that right! Its a little town on the western side of Wyoming. Now, I have to tell you about this really interesting guy that we met in Kemmer er that sells military s urplus pants and jackets and stuff. His name is Billy and he loves to see our scout leader show up at his place. Its a real trea sure trove of camp ing gear! T here were four of us there that day and we found all sorts of interesting stuff. We bought some great pants and matching camo jackets. He had hats and dufe bags and coats (which we really dont need be cause we live in Flor ida) knives, and all s orts of other stuff. It was great fun. I cant wait until next weekend to use our new gear when we are going on an other adventure in C entral Utah with Elder Mullins, our scout leader that served a mission in Florida. We are real ly excited to visit him a nd see him and his wife again. Hes ac tually the guy that h elped us get this article started so we could report on our activities for Troop and Pack 957! He has some really great places that are close to his house that we are going to go ex plore. We are super e xcited to go! We are joining other people from Utah to go with us. It should be really great fun! Whenever we get Elder Mullins and Brother Corbett together, its a reci pe for extreme fun! I c ant wait to tell you more about it. If you enjoy having a great time, come join us! Troop and Pack 957 are sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We usually meet on Wednesday nights but we are out west for the next few weeks so dont come to the church while we are gone. I will keep reporting on things we are doing the next few weeks.

Vinegar is said to have been discov ered around 5,000 BC, when unattended grape juice tur ned into wine and then vinegar. Originally used as a food preservative, vin egars medicinal uses soon came to light. Hippocrates used vinegar to manage wounds, while medi cal practitioners in the 1700s used it to tr eat everything from poi son ivy and croup to stomach aches. V inegar was even used to tr eat diabetes. Vinegar which means sour wine in French, can be made from virtually any carbo hydrate that can be fer mented, including grapes, dates, coco nut, potatoes, beets, and, of course, apples. The benefits and uses of apple cider vinegar (ACV) ar e now known to many (more on this later), which is why this is becoming a staple in many peoples kitchen pantries. T raditionally, vinegar is made through a long, slow fermentation process, leav ing it rich in bioactive components like acetic acid, gallic acid, catechin, epicatechin, caffeic acid, and more, giving it potent anti oxidant, antimicrobial, and many other bene ficial properties. As r eported in Med scape General Medi cine: The slow methods are generally used for the production of the traditional wine vinegars, and the culture of acetic acid bacteria gr ows on the surface of the liquid and fer mentation proceeds slowly over the course of weeks or months. The longer fer men tation period allows for the accumulation of a non-toxic slime composed of yeast and acetic acid bacteria, known as the mother of vinegar. Mother of vinegar, a cobweb-like amino acid-based substance found in unprocessed, unfiltered vinegar, indicates your vinegar is of the best quality. Most manufactur ers pasteurize and filter their vinegar to prevent the mother from form ing, but the murky kind is best, especially if youre planning to consume it. Health Uses for Apple Cider Vinegar Ther e are no official guidelines concerning taking vinegar inter nally. Some people take one to two teaspoons a day, mixed in a glass of water before meals or in the morn ing, and report bene fits from doing so. The risk of taking small amounts of vinegar is low, and research sug gests it may have some r eal health benefits. Vinegar is said to be anti-glycemic and has a beneficial effect on blood sugar levels. Its thought that the acetic acid in vinegar may lower blood sugar by preventing the com plete digestion of complex carbohydrates, which is accomplished either by accelerating gastric emptying or increasing the uptake of glucose by bodily tis sues. One theory is that vin egar might inactivate some of the digestive enzymes that br eak down carbohydrates into sugar, thus slow ing the conversion of complex carbohydrate into sugar fr om a meal into your bloodstream. This gives your body more time to pull sug ar out of your blood, p reventing your sug ar levels from spiking. Quite a bit of r esearch supports the use of vinegar as a diabetic treatment as well. One study found that vinegar treatment improved insulin sensitivity in 19 percent of individuals with type 2 diabetes and 34 percent of those with pre-diabetes. Yet another study found taking two tablespoons of apple ci der vinegar before bed lower ed blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes by up to 6 percent by the morning. Vinegar supports heart health in multi ple ways. As explained in the Jour nal of Food Science: Polyphenols such as chlorogenic acid, which is present in high levels in apple cider vinegar, could in and improve health by preventing cardiovas cular diseases. One study showed that vinegar could lower cholesterol in laboratory rats, while another study on rats found their blood pressure could be lowered by the acetic acid in vinegar Vinegar has also been found to decrease tri glyceride levels and aging form of choles terol) in animal studies. Vinegar may help you lose weight, as it appears to have an anti-obesity effect by in creasing satiety and r educing the total amount of food consumed. For instance, when volunteers consumed a small amount of vinegar along with a highcarb meal (a bagel and juice) they consumed less food for the r e mainder of the day. The r eduction equated to about 200 to 275 calories a day an amount that would result in a monthly weight loss of up to 1.5 pounds. In addition, separate research found tak ing vinegar along with br ead not only lowered glucose and insulin responses, but also increased levels of satiety. The rating of satiety was directly related to the acetic acid level in the vinegar Apple cider vinegar helps to break up and reduce mucous in your body, helping to clear your sinuses. It also has antibacterial properties, making it useful for infections. Heres what to do: 1.Add 1/2 to 1 tea spoon of apple cider vinegar to a cup of warm filtered water, and then stir until its thoroughly mixed. 2.Pour some of the mixture into your palm (make sure you wash your hands first) and then snort it up one nostril at a time. Plug the other nostril with the other hand. Repeat to the other side. The antibacterial properties in apple cider vinegar may be useful for sore throats as well. Gargle with a mixture of about onethird cup of apple ci der vinegar mixed with war m water as needed. You can also use undi luted ACV for this: 1.Sip a small of amount of undiluted apple cider vinegar. 2.If you can with stand it, repeat several times a day. 3.Ther e should be a 30-minute gap in between each sip. Make sur e to drink water af ter each dose. Acid r eflux typically results from having too little acid in your stomach. You can easily improve the acid content of your stom ach by taking one tablespoon of raw unfil tered apple cider vinegar in a large glass of wate r daily. The pectin in apple cider vinegar may also help to soothe intestinal spasms. In addition, ACV not only effectively stim ulates digestive juic es that help the body br eak down food, but it also contains healthy acids like isobutryic, acetic, propionic and lactic acid that can control the growth of unwanted yeast and bacteria in your stom ach and throughout your body. Apple cider vinegar works for a variety of skin ailments, from bug bites to poison ivy to sunburn. You can either apply it directly to the irritated area or try soaking in a bath with about one cup of vinegar added. Topical application of apple cider vine gar may help remove warts, likely because of the high levels of acetic acid it contains. Y ou can try soaking a cotton ball in vinegar and applying it to the wart, covered, over night. 1.Soak a cotton ball in ACV. 2.Applying the cotton ball over the wart and keep it well covered. 3.Leave it on over night, and remove in the mor ning. Apple cider vinegar contains potassium and enzymes to help banish fatigue. Plus, its amino acids may help prevent the buildup of lactic acid in your body, further preventing fatigue. cation Studies found that ACV plays a role in liver detoxification, and may stimulate cir culation.

Bennett worked in Supply and Food Service and Naval Intelligence during his sixteen years in the Navy and is a Gulf aboard the USS Nimitz, our nations second nuclear carrier and the USS Saratoga, an other aircraft carrier, while he was stationed at Mayport, near Jack sonville. The Saratoga was the second of four Forr estal-class supercarri ers built for the Unit ed States Navy in the 1950s, Bennett said. Our newer carriers, all nuclear power ed, are named after presidents: Ford, Reagan, Bush, and Roosevelt. Bennett left the mil itary service in 1992 and was back in school a t the beginning of 1993.

In 2011 Ben nett returned to col lege, earning a degree in Political Science and Public Administration in 2012. Ive been interested in writing and have been writing for quite some time, Bennett said, but I didnt publish my first book until 2012. Since then Bennett has been prolific, writing and publishing twenty books. He was driven to write and fin ished sixteen books in two years. I felt so compelled to write I finished one book in fourteen days, he said. The longest it took me to complete a book was a year and a half. Bennett has many varied interests and the genres of his work point that out. Among his books are includ ed military and military action, human inter est, romantic mystery a nd regular mystery. He also plays trum pet and has a musical backgr ound, which allows him to write with authority about the subject when it occurs in his novels. Ive spoken to audi ences all over Florida, Bennett said. Ive also given presentations in Tennessee, Texas, all over the east coast and west to California. Governor Rick Scott, Ben Carson, the cur rent Secretary of the opment, Ted Yoho, our US Repr esentative, and other celebrities and politicians also have copies of my books. Bennett has also been interviewed on nation al radio broadcasts in both the United States and Canada, and he is available to speak to local civic and commu nity groups.

Studies have shown that high-quality pre-K education bet ter prepares children to achieve in school and makes them mor e likely to strive for higher vo cational aspirations. It also has a positive impact on soci ety. For every dollar spent on high-quality early education, society gains as much as $13 in long-ter m savings, according to a 2016 study by No bel Laureate, James Heckman. T oo many teachers struggle to access essential classroom resources, says Sal ly McCrady, chair and pr esident of PNC Foundation. Luck ily, its easier than ever to get involved in supporting local efforts to help pre-K teachers and their classrooms and stu dents. Lar ge-scale efforts are being made to help more teachers, classrooms and chil dren get the resources they need, such as science kits, books, art supplies and eld trips. One example of this is a $5 mil lion alliance between the PNC Foundation and DonorsChoose. or g, a crowd-fund ing platform whereby teachers r equest the materials and experiences they need most for their classr ooms, and donors can give to the vetted projects that inspire them. Any person interest ed in helping pre-K teachers can access D onorsChoose.org and donate to a proj ect. Though teachers often spend their own money on class room supplies, they still need many mor e resources to pro vide a well-rounded, high-quality lear ning experience, says Y asmina S. Vinci, executive director, National Head Start Association (NHSA), a not-for-prot ad vocacy organization dedicated to supporting the Head Start community. Major initiatives of this alliance include: Cards: Every teach er who submitted a pr e-K project request in the PNC footprint since April 4, 2017 received a $100 elec tronic gift card to be used on Donor sChoose.org. More than 3,700 public pr e-K and Head Start teachers received the cards to support new projects. standing early education teacher in most PNC markets has been honor ed as a Teacher Hero for his or her efforts and involvement in the alliance. All honorees received a $2,000 gift card to fund a project in their classrooms and a second $2,000 gift card to help seed other pre-K proj ects listed on Donor sChoose.org. Cards: All PNC em ployees who volunteered for the early education initiative 2017 will receive a $50 electronic gift card to support pre-K project requests on DonorsChoose.org. hese resources are already having re al-world impacts. Last years campaign enabled nearly 244,000 pr eschool children across 21 states and the Dis trict of Columbia to r eceive new classroom materials and educational oppor tunities. More than 7,500 pr e-K classroom projects beneted from the grant, which was made in support of PNC $350 million early childhood education initiative. Teachers and donors can vis com/donorschoose for more information. Because of these efforts, we can intro duce our children to mor e activities and opportunities to learn more skills, says Chicago pre-K teach The supplies that I have received have transformed our classroom environ ment.Special to the Courier Journal August 8, 2018 B3 Large-Scale Efforts Helping Pre-K Teachers Receive Resources; You Can, Too Tick exposure can occur year-round, but ticks are most active during warmer months ending in September. The ticks common to Florida are the Black-Legged Tick, American Dog Tick, Bont Tick, and the Lone Star Tick, Before You Go Outdoors Know where to expect ticks. Ticks live in grassy, brushy, or wooded areas, or even on animals. Spending time outside walking your dog, camping, gar dening, or hunting could bring you in close contact with ticks. Many people get ticks in their own yard or neighbor hood. Treat clothing and gear with products containing 0.5 per cent permethrin. Permethrin can be used to treat boots, clothing and camping gear and remain protective through several washings. Protection Agency (EPA)-registered insect repellents containing DEET, picar idin, IR3535, Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus (OLE), para-menthane-diol (PMD), or 2-undecanone. EPAs helpful search tool can help you nd the product that best suits your needs. Always follow product instructions. Do not use insect repellent on babies younger than 2 months old. Do not use products containing OLE or PMD on children under 3 years old. A void Contact with Ticks A void wooded and brushy areas with high grass and leaf litter. W alk in the center of trails. After Y ou Come Indoors Check your clothing for ticks. Ticks may be carried into the house on clothing. Any ticks that are found should be removed. Tumble dry clothes in a dryer on high heat for 10 minutes to kill ticks on dry clothing after you come indoors. If the clothes are damp, additional time may be needed. If the clothes require washing rst, hot water is recommended. Cold and medium temperature water will not kill ticks. Shower soon after being outdoors. Showering within two hours of coming indoors has been shown to reduce your risk of getting Lyme disease and may be effective in reducing the risk of other tickborne diseases. Showering may help wash off unattached ticks and it is a good opportunity to do a tick check. Check your body for ticks after being outdoors. Conduct a full body check upon return from potentially tick-infested ar eas, including your a hand-held or fulllength mirror to view all parts of your body. Check these parts of your body and your childs body for ticks: In and ar ound the ears Inside belly button Back of the knees In and ar ound the hair Between the legs Ar ound the waist Examine gear and pets. Ticks can ride into the home on clothing and pets, then attach to a per son later, so carefully examine pets, coats, and daypacks.

Governor Rick Scott announced the release of the 2018 Florida Mili tary-Friendly Guide. T he annual guide, created by the Flor ida Defense Support T ask Force, offers a summary of Flori das laws, programs a nd services bene fitting military ser vice members and t heir families. It also highlights Floridas low tax and finan cial advantages, ed ucational benefits, p rofessional licen sure opportunities a nd fee waivers for service men, wom en and their families s tationed in Flori da. A digital copy o f the 2018 Florida Military-Friendly Guide is available at www.enterprise florida.com/wp-con tent/uploads/Flori da-Military-Friend ly-Guide-2018.pdf. G overnor Scott said, As a proud Navy veteran, and the son of a World War II vet eran, I want to make s ure our military and their families have access to the services they need. Florida is the most military and veteran friendly state in the nation, and since I took office, weve invested hundreds of millions in fund ing for services and b enefits for our mil itary and veterans. O ur Florida Mili tary-Friendly Guide is a nother great re source for our mil itary members to l earn more about these great benefits and everything Flor ida has to offer to t hose who serve. Florida is home to more than 1.5 mil lion veterans, 20 m ajor military in stallations and t hree unified com mands. Since 2011, u nder the leadership of Governor Scott, Florida has invest ed hundreds of mil lions in funding to su pport active mil itary, veterans and t heir families in cluding more than $ 180 million in this years budget. Gov ernor Scotts focus o n serving those that serve our na tion has also helped d rive down the un employment rate for v eterans in Florida to a low 2.9 percent nearly an entire percent lower than the national average and a decrease of more than six per cent since 2010. To f oster enhanced co operation between s tate agencies and Floridas military in stallations, Gover nor Scott holds reg ular meetings with F loridas base com manders and heads o f state agencies. Representative Jay Trumbull of Pan ama City, Chair of t he Florida Defense Support Task Force, said, The Florida Military-Friendly Guide is a great re source for military s ervice men, women and their families in the Sunshine State. Enterprise Florida and the Florida De fense Support Task F orce will continue to support military members and their families, and work to maintain Floridas status as the most military-friendly state in the nation. The defense indus try provides an an nual economic im pact of $84.9 billion a nd accounts for more than 801,000 jobs in Florida. De fense continues to b e the fourth largest contributor to the state economy be hind agriculture and t ourism. The Flori da Military-Friendly G uide is distributed annually to Floridas military bases and defense communi ties.Special to the Courier Journal 2018 Florida Military-Friendly GuideB4 CROSSWORD PUZZLE SUDOKUSolution is on B2. Solution is on B2. Researchers with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions (FWC) Fish and Wildlife Re search Institute are a sking for help from anglers, spearfishers, and charter captains to capture information about the Atlantic red snapper fishery. NOAA Fisheries an nounced the recre ational season will be Au g. 10-12 and Aug. 17-19 in Atlantic fed eral waters (beyond 3 n autical miles from shore). Anglers and spearfishers are limit ed to one fish per per son, per day, with no mini mum size limit. Each day of the sea son provides an oppor tunity for researchers i n Florida to collect biological data from har vested red snapper, w hich can be used to monitor the health of the fishery. FWC biol ogists will be greeting r ecreational anglers at boat ramps and ma rinas along Floridas e ast coast to conduct short interviews about their fishing trips. Bi ologists will also ask f or permission to col lect biological infor mation from harvest ed fish. C harter vessel oper ators also work coop eratively with FWC re searchers during the At lantic red snapper season by providing details about their fishing trips and al lowing biologists to c ollect samples from harvested fish at the dock. The survey responses and biological samples submitted by anglers will provide valuable data about the red snapper fishery. The FWC will provide in formation collected to t he Southeast Data, Assessment and Re view (SEDAR) for the n ext red snapper stock assessment. In 2017, the Atlan tic red snapper season w as open two week ends in November. F WC shared data col lected during the sea son with federal fish ery managers to help t hem estimate wheth er the federal quota w as caught during the season, which co incided with inclem ent weather and rough s eas in many areas. After reviewing this and other available recreational fisheries data, NOAA Fisher ies estimated that an e xtended season was warranted and re opened harvest for an a dditional weekend in December. During surveys con ducted in Florida last y ear, FWRI research ers sampled more t han 700 red snapper that were caught rec reationally to collect i nformation on the size, weight, age and sex composition. This year, FWRI re searchers will again b e asking anglers and charter vessel oper ators to assist with d ata collection efforts. This work would not be possible without the collaborative ef forts of scientists, an glers, spearfishers, a nd charter captains working together to collect high-quality data to manage Flori das fisheries.
