Theres an old joke about why a bowling alley should be qui et. Something about so you can hear a pin drop. On Saturday, October 6 the Putnam Lanes bowling ally in Palatka was anything but quiet, as more than 70 partic ipants, along with par ents, guardians, care givers, and a half dozen o r so staff members met for a morning of bowl ing, competition and f un at the Opening Cer emonies of the Putnam C ounty Bowling Games, Special Olympics Pro gram.

The ceremonies be gan with the playing of t he national anthem, the Pledge of Allegiance to the American ag, and the reciting of the Athletes Oath Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.

Special Olympics coach Holly Savel of Crescent City is in her twelfth year as a coach. Holly began volunteering with her daughter with special needs when she was in the eighth grade.

As we moved furniture recently, a small white desk brought a flood of memories to my mind. My wife, Donna, and I had only been married about a year and a half and had a two-month-old daughter. I was struggling to work my way through college and take care of my little family. What work I found was usually part-time, paid minimum wage, and was seldom steady. Donna tried to save money in every way she could. She purchased an old sewing machine at a garage sale and sewed our clothes. Much of the work I found was hard, physical work, and I often tore holes in my clothes, especially my pants. Donna patched them until even my patches had patches on them. But it was hard for me knowing Donna had no desk at which to sew. The only surface we had in our apartment was the small kitchen table. But it was hard to lay everything on it, only to move it to eat. And it didnt fit much more than the sewing machine. I would come home from a long day of work, and Donna would be sitting on the floor sewing, with the baby close by. It was cute, but it was hard on Donnas back and made her tired. I decided to try to get her a sewing desk. Everywhere I went I looked for an inexpensive desk at secondhand stores and every garage sales but found nothing we could afford. Then, one night, we went to a charity auction. I scraped together every penny we had and counted twenty dollars. I was hoping to buy some tools to fix our small pickup. It was our only transportation, and it was not running well. At the auction, we added the Jello salad that Donna made with the other potluck food and then paid the five dollar donation for the meal. After we ate, we wandered among the donated items before the auction started. I found an old set of tools that I thought would work for what I needed. They had a suggested starting bid of five dollars. But then something else caught my attention. I saw Donna standing by a nice little desk. It wasnt just any desk; it was a sewing desk with drawers made for bobbins and other useful items. I saw her look at the suggested bid and disappointedly turn away. I went over and looked at the tag. It suggested a thirty dollar opening bid. My heart sank. The desk would be perfect, but we only had fifteen dollars left. The auctioneer started and moved through the items quickly. When he got to the tools and started the bid at ten dollars, I almost bid. But somehow, I couldnt do it. All I could think of was the desk. The tools sold for twelve dollars, and Donna asked why I didnt bid. Im not sure they were what I needed, I replied. That was true, but there was a more important reason. When the desk came up for bid, the auctioneer asked, Who will bid forty dollars? No one said anything, so he dropped it to thirty-five, then thirty, then twenty-five. Still no one bid, so he moved to something else. When he had sold almost everything else and paused for a moment, I slipped up to him. Are you going to sell the desk? I asked. No one seemed to want to start the bidding, he replied. I would have, but I dont have as much as you wanted, I said. But I would like it for my wife. How much do you want to bid? he asked. Fifteen dollars is all I have, I replied, and I will bid it all. He looked at me and seemed to realize that I was a struggling college student, and he smiled. Youve got yourself a desk. He motioned to the lady marking down the sold items, and she handed me the paper to pay for the desk. But after everything else was sold, a man asked about it. The auctioneer told the man the desk was sold. But no one even bid on it, the man complained. I planned to, but I didnt want to start. The auctioneer turned and smiled at me, then said to the man, I doubt you could have beat the bid, because youd have to give everything you had. And as we recently moved the old desk, I think Donna remembered, too, because she looked at it, smiled, and hugged me.

National Book Month National Book Month is a yearly celebration that is observed in the month of October. This months celebration has been introduced by the National Book Foundation. The purpose behind this month is to encourage the spirit of book reading among people. It is a way of finding some new ways for incorporating reading and book-related activities in the lives of children. This is so because reading helps in promoting literacy, assists in improving grammar and spellings and develops feelings of empathy when the reader experiences the struggles and successes of the fictional characters he or she is reading about. National Book Foundation is a nonprofit organization. It is established for the purpose of raising the cultural appraisal of outstanding writings of America. The organization was established in 1989 and since that time it has been sponsoring and administrating the National Book Awards. It also sponsors and administers educational as well as public programs. The board of trustees of National Book Foundation includes representatives of literary institutions of America along with the representatives of book industry. The after school program of the organization named as BookUpNYC makes use of novel methods to motivate youth regarding the pleasure of reading. Book Facts: 1. There are over 130 million books in print. 2. The word for loving the smell of old books is Bibliosmia. Similar to carbon-dating, scientists can analyze the chemicals responsible for old book smell to determine the age of a book. The process is called material degradomics. 3. The three most read books in the world are The Holy Bible, Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-Tung, and Harry Potter. 4. Dr Seuss invented the word nerd, using it in his 1950 book If I Ran the Zoo.

Summit St., Crescent City, FL 32112 or FAX to 386-698-1994, or E-mail to pccjnews@gmail.com Letters to the Editor A Desk Full of MemoriesDaris Howard Did that Come From?Rise and Shine The earliest use of rise and shine in print allude to a bib lical reference, in Isa iah 60:1. King James Version, 1611, gives that as: Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. The earliest examples of the actual phrase rise and shine dont come from the bible itself but are clearly directly influenced by it; for example, The Testimony of William Erbery, 1658, a book of religious observa tions directed To the Christian Reader: They [the Christian saints] shall so rise and shine, that the glory shall rise upon them. The link to Isaiah 60:1 is even clearer in the use of the phrase arise, and shine, which is found in sev eral Christian texts of the mid 17th centu ry for instance Robert Gells An Essay t oward the Amend ment of the last English-Translation of the Bible, 1659 and Thomas Douglass Jerubbaal: or, A Vindica tion of the Sober Testimony against Sinful Complyance, 1664. The first non-re ligious uses, albeit those probably still referring back to the biblical text, are ref erences to the sun, as in this example from Mar yland paper The Torch Light And Pub lic Advertiser, February 1824: Courage, child of Washington, Though thy fate di sastrous stems, We have seen the setting sun Rise and shine with brighter beams. The use of rise and shine as a wake up call for soldiers is what has given us the expression in every day use. In that context rise just means rouse yourself and shine derives from the shining of boots that soldiers were expected to do each morning. It is diffi cult to know if it was coined independently of the biblical source or whether it was also a jokey reference which compared the bleary-eyed rough sol diery to the radiant Christian venerables most likely the latter, I would have thought. When used in the British Army rise and shine was, and still is, preceded by wakey-wakey. The naval wake up call is shake (or show) a leg. The term may not have origi nated in the British Army though the first citation of its use that I can find is from America. Thats in the 1916 U.S. Ma rine Corps Recruiters Bulletin: H e rapped at the door and in stentori an tones cried,Rise and shine... Wiggle a toe. From the Phase Finder: http://www. phrases.org.uk/. Did that Did that Did that Come Come Come Come From? From? From? From? Becoming a Politician Dear Editor: Thinking about being a politician? Here are some of the areas you will have to become proficient in to succeed: Be totally self serving. Think of no one except yourself. Always be dishonest and always say what the people want to hear. Never listen to the people you serve. Never have peoples best interest in mind. Remember, you are being paid for your influence. You will have to be proficient and learn to lie, lie, lie. Deny and resist when caught in a lie or transgression. You will have to learn the art of talking out of two sides of your mouth. You will have to cultivate special interest groups. You must listen only to lobbyist, after all they are more important than the people. Get the media on your side and hope they deliver fiction, not facts. Whats most important? How much money special interest group can pay you. Last but not least, learn how you can keep your job for ever and ever. Blame all of your short coming on everyone else. No responsibility. Congratulations, now that you have learned the basics. You are ready to become a full-fledged politician. Dr. William Lockhart Crescent City

Hi everyone! Jose here to tell you about how Troop 957 works together. Its pretty awesome when we have a big service project to do and lots of people show up. We had about twelve of us at this project. There was a lot to do! Some of us cleaned and raked leaves. Our scoutmaster got on the ladder and cleaned the gutters. He said hes used to this kind of work be cause he does it for h is landscape main tenance business and h e didnt want any of us falling off the ladder. I tease him all the time because hes getting older. He turned 61 last Sat urday, but some of u s think he still acts like hes 35 or some thing like that. Our s cout troop members hope we can be that active when we get as old as he is! His sister tells him he is now older than dirt. He says thats okay be cause shes catching u p with him pretty fast! Hes so funny! Anyway, he cleaned out gutters because there were trees and weeds growing in them. It had been quite a while since someone came to help this kind lady with her yard. We re paired screens and p ainted her shed in the back yard and cleaned up leaves and blew everything off. We had over twenty bags of leaves and stuff we removed from her yard. It was pretty great! It made us feel real good too. And the lady was super nice and thanked us a lot. We even had ice cream as a treat after we nished working, so that was pretty great too! Our scout slogan is Do a good turn daily! It feels good when we help other people. If you want to have as much fun as we do, please call 307-413-7723 and nd out about the Cub Scout and Boy Scout activities for Pack and Troop 957. We are sponsored by the Church of Je sus Christ of Latter D ay Saints. Special thanks to the Couri er Journal for helping u s to report our news each week! We really appreciate them!

Patrick Kennedy, City Manager wrote in his monthly chronicle, There are many who have been looking forward to the return of a theater company in Crescent City.

The cast included Dan Grossman, Bill and Lila Mayo, Margie Nelson, Drew Rivers, and Brad Skelton. The intent of the Pur ple Plum Playhouse is to bring comedy to the area and share the profits with other local creative arts initiatives and service projects. They also invite stu dents of all ages inter ested in learning about Community Theater to try out for future productions and to volunteer to work behind the scenes The first production, a dinner theater, Under standing Your Pet by Dr. Marla Brett, was held in the spring at the Pomona Park Community Center. This initiative was introduced as a project of GFWC Crescent City Womans Club by Laureen Faulkner. Following the dinner theater, largely because of the overwhelming support received, the cast and crew formed a not-for-profit charitable organization, registered in the State of Florida. Dr. Dan also offered his building on the corner of Summit Street and Lake Grove Drive as a future location for The Purple Plum Playhouse of Crescent City. The cast is presently rehearsing there. Show times for Let Him Sleep Til His Funeral will be 7 p.m. Friday evening. The ticket price for this perfor mance is $20 and will include refreshments.

This is play has a Christmas them and is free to the public. The third production, Dear ly Departed, another hilarious comedy will be held March 30 to April 2. Many local entities are providing in-kind and financial support for the establishment and growth of a permanent Purple Plum Playhouse venture. Spankys and Waters Edge are offer ing meal discounts with a playbill or ticket stub. The City has offered to help repair, prepare and support the auditoriums use.

In a study published in The Lancet, researchers called air pollution the lar gest environ mental cause of disease and pr emature death in the world today. More than 9 million prema ture deaths were caused by air pollution in 2015, nearly 16 per cent of deaths worldwide. This was three times more deaths than attributed to tuberculosis, malaria and AIDS combined. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 92 percent of the world breathe polluted air, and air pollution is a major contributor to lung and respiratory in fections, heart disease and cancer However, what many fail to con sider is indoor air pollu tion may actually be as danger ous as outdoor air pollution. For instance, indoor air pollution of volatile or ganic compounds (VOCs) linked to neur ological symptoms are two to five times higher than out side. Sociological stud ies suggest Americans spend nearly 92 per cent of their day inside, meaning your indoor air quality is critical to your long-ter m health. The most dangerous air pollution is fine particu late matter, referring to particles smaller than 2.5 micr ometers in diameter (PM2.5). These particles are small enough to pass through lung tissue and enter your bloodstream, triggering chronic in flammation and disease. Recent r esearch finds re ducing indoor pollution may r esult in improving your blood pressure. Reducing Air Pollution Again Tied to Improve ments in Heart Health The r esearchers sought to answer whether porta ble air filtration systems could r educe exposure to fine particulate mat ter and therefore affect blood pr essure in elderly adults. The study was conducted in a low-in come senior residential building in Detroit, Michigan, using 40 nonsmoking adults. They measured PM2.5 exposure and cardiovas cular factors, including blood pr essure and heart rate variability, on a dai ly basis. Previous studies have demonstrated even short-ter m exposure is linked with an increased risk of cardiovascular conditions. Long-term exposure amplifies the risk and increases the potential development of chronic heart and meta bolic conditions. The WHO8 guidelines recommend an average exposure of 10 micro grams per cubic meter of air (ug/m3) as an upper limit. Prior to installa tion of the air filters, the average exposur e for the seniors was 15.5 ug/m3. The researchers measured the residents blood pressures after us ing three different types of portable air filters for thr ee days each. A low efficiency filter reduced PM2.5 concen tration to 10.9 ug/m3; a high-ef ficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter re duced it to 7.4 ug/m3. The thir d control filter did not clean the air. Using either the low or high efficiency air filter, researchers found blood pressure levels in those who suffer from hyper tension improved by an amount similar to what could be achieved with lifestyle changes. Although the study was too small to detect mean ingful differences in blood pr essure based on the type of air filtration, and didnt track individ uals to determine if they developed or died from cardiovascular diseases, participants did enjoy a reduction in blood pres sure. Lead study author Masako Morishita, of Michigan State Universi ty in East Lansing, com mented: A simple intervention using inexpensive indoor air filtration units can help to lower both PM2.5 exposures and blood pressure levels. Since hypertension is the lead ing risk factor for death worldwide, we believe much larger trials are warranted to test wheth er air filtration units can play an important r ole in helping to prevent cardiovascular diseases worldwide. How Blood Pressure Affects Your Heart Health The featured study con firms previous results11 fr om Canadian research ers studying healthy adults living in British Columbia. HEP A filters reduced the amount of airborne particulates and participants expe rienced improvements in blood vessel health and reductions in blood markers associated with an increased risk of heart disease. Blood pressure mea sures pressure of blood against your blood ves sels as it moves through your body. When pr es sure is too high, it places strain on your arteries and heart, leading to an increased risk of heart at tacks and strokes. High blood pr essure (hyper tension) does not usually have clinical symptoms, so the only way to tell is to have your blood pr es sure measured. Each measur ement consists of two numbers, one on the top and one on the bottom. The top number is your systol ic blood pressure or the highest level pr essure reached as your heart beats. The bottom num ber is your diastolic pres sure, which measures the lowest level pr essure as your heart relaxes. Hypertension is an im portant risk factor in car diovascular disease and mortality. A r eport from Global Burden of Disease focuses on the heavy toll it has on health in all regions of the world. The rise in pressure changes the structure of arter ies, increasing your risk of str oke, heart disease and kidney failure. The WHO14 estimates 51 percent of stroke and 45 percent of ischemic heart disease deaths are attributed to high sys tolic blood pressure. In 2013, hypertension was the No. 1 individual risk factor associated with death worldwide, con tributing to 10.4 million deaths. It also appears to be dis tributed relatively evenly thr oughout the world as the WHO reports rates between 30 percent to 45 percent in men and women from low-, mid dleand high-income countries. In the U.S., the Cen ters for Disease Control and Pr evention (CDC)17 reports southern states have the highest per centage of adults with high blood pr essure, but acknowledges these self-reported numbers are likely underreported as nearly 20 percent of adults are unaware they have the condition. Indoor and Outdoor Air Pollution Impacts More Than Your Blood Pressure Air pollution affects your cardiovascular system in more ways than raising your blood pressure. In one study, researchers found small particulate matter has an affini ty for accumulating in damaged or inflamed ar eas of the vascular sys tem. This suggests microscopic particles have the ability to access your bloodstr eam, increasing inflammation in suscep tible areas of your arteri al system. Another study evaluated damage from air pol lution emitted from diesel burning engines and found they accumulate in your nervous system, causing damage to your brain tissue. After only 30 minutes of exposure to diesel fumes, data demonstrated a signif icant increase in brain activity, corresponding to a stress response. Although several longterm effects of exposure to poor indoor air quality are just being further ex plored through intensive r esearch to document health effects, some known health challenges include: Decreased lung function Asthma and bron chitis Decr eased cognitive function Diabetes Emphysema Lung cancer Shortened life span High blood pressure Pneumonia Heart attack Stroke Depression Reducing Your Expo sure to Air Pollutants Y ou may be surprised by the number of chemi cals in your home leach ing from building materials, DIY projects, per sonal care products and flame r etardant chemi cals added to home fur nishings. Although it is impossi ble to completely avoid inhaling any pollution, there are steps you may consider to significant ly reduce your exposure and the impact it has on your health. buf fer the effects of pol lution Strive to eat a diet of whole foods, rich in anti-inflammatory vegetables and healthy fats. Among the most important include eating omega-3 fats, broccoli sprouts, and foods rich in vitamins B, C and E. For more information about how they reduce the effects of pollution see my previous article, Air Pollution is Becom ing More Dangerous. tention to your indoor air quality is important and adding a quality purifier is a good start. Commer cially purchased filters may lower the amount of C-reactive protein and other measurements of inflammation. However, no one filter can remove all pollutants and its important to ensure the filter you use is rated for your room size. Photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) is one of the best technologies available today. Rather than filter ing the air, PCO actually acts as an air purifier cleaning the air using ultraviolet light. Unlike filters, which simply trap pollutants, PCO trans forms the pollutants into nontoxic substances. get some plants One of the simplest ways to lower pollution in your home is to open win dows at opposite ends of your home for at least 15 minutes each day to cr eate cross-ventilation. Since most new homes are airtight for energy efficiency, air pollutants may build more quickly. Consider cracking a win dow at night and install ing an attic fan to bring fr esh air into your home. Plants also remove pollutants by absorb ing them through their leaves and r oots, in much the same way they clean the outdoor air from the pollution giv en off by manufacturing plants, cars and heating systems. Data also demonstrates house plants may help impr ove your attention and productivity, reduce anxiety, improve accura cy and memory retention and r educe sick days. For a list of indoor plants to help clean your air see my previous article, Healthy Houseplants That Improve Your In door Air Quality. dows in heavy traffic The consistent r ecom mendation from studies is to r oll up your windows and use the recir culate setting on your car when your e in heavy traffic or if youre stop ping frequently at red lights. While this is import ant, in newer and more airtight cars may this may lead to an increased buildup of carbon diox ide causing the car to feel stuf fy when two or more people are breath ing the same air for an extended period of time. T oo much carbon di oxide may increase the potential of experienc ing drowsiness, fatigue, confusion, headache and sleepiness. Pr event this by pulling in outdoor air for two minutes every 10 to 15 minutes.There are one hundred seventy-five state parks, recreation areas and trails in the state of Flor ida. Of these, there are eight in Putnam County. Two or three of these are probably known by nearly everyone who lives here, but a few of the oth ers may surprise some. Ravine Gar dens and Dunns Creek State Parks and Rodman Recreation Area are names that are probably familiar to most readers. But our other local state parks may have slipped your notice. Putnam boasts one state recreation area: Kenwood, south of Interlachen, Buckman Lock, south of Palatka off State Road 19, as well as Rodman Campground, located further south on Rodman Dam Road, and two trails: Palatka to St. Augustine and Palatka to Lake Butler. Ravine Gardens State Park is one of the nine New Deal-era state parks in Florida. The park has two ravines up to one hundred-twenty feet deep with very steep banks. A swinging bridge spans one section of the ravines while many trails snake up and down and around the banks. In 1933 the ravines were transformed by the federal Works Progress Administration forming many of the fea tures you see today. In addition to the natur e trails, a 1.8-mile paved road winds around the ravines, giving motorists some very unusual and dramatic views for a Flor ida landscape. Raymond Presley, who works in the local park service, is responsible for many of the programs that are planned in Ra vine Gardens and Dunns Cr eek State Parks and on the Palatka to St. Augustine Trail when it opens in November. We have a lot of really exciting programs com ing up, Presley said. We have a monthly gar den ing program that begins on October 11, at 9 a.m. Join us for our month ly Garden Party, where gar deners of all skill lev els meet up and spend the mor ning beautifying the gardens at Ravine Gardens State Park. Vol unteers will work with park staf f to maintain and improve the gar dens by helping to weed, transplant, plant, trim, and prune. Another big event that takes place every year in the Ravine is the Hallow een Spooktacular. This eerie event takes place on October 27 at 6 p.m. This Halloween will see Ravine Gar dens trans formed into the Head less Horsemans per sonal playground. The headless horseman will make a spooky appear ance while kids trick or tr eat on the historic Court of States. There will be food from Cool Beans BBQ and you can take pictures with the real Bardin Booger. The St. Augustine Tale Tellers will be sharing creepy stories fr om times long past up to the present. You can take a chance and sneak through the headless horsemans house if youre not afraid of chilling nightmares when you go to bed. Event Admission is two dollars per person, while kids six and under are free. We have communi ty walks and Bat and Bir dhouse programs to teach you how to build your own, Presley said. We also sponsor mov ies and music in Ravine Gar dens, and our first Out of Darkness Com munity Walk takes place on October 13 at 9 a.m. W e also celebrate a hol iday lights event near Christmas on December 15. This and the Hallow een Spooktacular are our two biggest events of the year . Dunns Creek State Park has been officially open about two years with daytime usage for hiking, picnicking and horseback riding. Dunns Creek State Park has two entrances, the main entrance on Sisco Road and a walk in site on US 17 between Satsuma and Pomona Park.

Each year, millions of youth migrate out of the classroom and into the great outdoors to experience one of Americas most classic traditions camp. And while campers are busy experiencing the excitement of their unique adventures, they may not realize the hugely positive impact thats happening behind the scenes that will leave a lasting impression for years to come. Research shows youth who participate in 4-H are four times more likely to contribute to their communities and twice as likely to be civically active, among many other benets. One could argue this is due to 4-H camps, programs and other experiences providing par ticipants opportunities to learn by doing, grow from failure, express their ideas and use their inuence to drive positive outcomes. Garrett Franck, 12, of Union County in Pennsylvania, is an active member of the Good Time 4-H Club in Mifinburg and has been attending 4-H camp for ve years. According to Franck, camp sessions allow youth like him to explore new interests and build unexpected friendships. Through attending camp, Ive made friends from different counties that I may not have met otherwise, said Franck. We look forward to seeing each other year after year and catching up. Ive also learned so much about teamwork, and I really feel like Ive grown as a 4-H member and a person in general by attending camp. Garretts mother, Bar bara, is a 4-H club leader herself and has put all three of her children in the program. -H is a program that has something for everyone, and it allows for new experiences that other youth organizations may not be able to provide, said Franck. -H camps are an important piece of the puzzle for strengthening the foundation of understanding the importance of traits like responsibility, time management skills and teamwork. In addition, 4-H camps have been found to promote the following life skills in youth: 1. Self-condence. Successful participation in camp activities helps kids validate their own capabilities. Environments like 4-H camp require campers to think and act on their own. As a result, children who experience themselves as competent will be better problem-solvers in new situations. 2. Freedom to explore new interests. Camp programs provide structured, extracur ricular activities where youth are able to enjoy hands-on engagement. This is a priority at 4-H camps, where campers are provided ample opportunities to deep-dive into new activities and programs that they other wise wouldnt have the chance to. This type of structure allows campers to decide whether or not an activity or program speaks to their passions enough to continue pursuing. 3. Communication skills. Spending focused time with other youths of similar ages and interests can help campers build relationships and create a sense of connectedness. Meeting and getting to know new peers are the social skills most often reinforced in 4-H camp settings. No matter the level of social skills a camper possesses, communication is a vital developmental ability that should continue to be practiced. 4. Independence. Taking a step away from a typical, day-to-day environment can empower campers, teaching them how to handle themselves and make good decisions outside of their comfort zones. Camp plays a role in this by creating a setting where youth are required to develop a sense of autonomy by taking more responsibility for themselves and their belongings and making their own decisions. In turn, stable identities and empowerment are the result. Even if your days of being a camper are over, your days of making the experience possible for adolescents in your community are not.

Members of the community, ages 18 and up, are encour aged to participate. Survey r esults will be reported in a Putnam Quality of Life prog ress report, which is intended to establish trend lines for helping to build a better com munity. V arious aspects of the communitys quality of life, which a diverse group of people in the community would agree are priorities in relation to Putnam Countys shared vision or goals, will be mea sured and presented in the r eport. The Quality of Life progress report will provide information about the current state and well-being of the community, with the intention of generating conversations and encouraging community involvement to both celebrate and improve the quality of life in Putnam County. A few of the 14 questions included on the survey include: All things consider ed, how satised are you with the quality of life in Putnam County to day? Is your nancial se curity today better, worse, or about the same as compar ed to three years ago? In your opinion, is the quality of leadership in our local Putnam County government excellent, good, fair, or poor? The full survey, which can be completed in under ve minutes, can be accessed on the Col lege Web site at: www. sjrstate.edu. Printed copies ar e available at the Putnam County Chamber of Commerce. Participation is voluntary, and participants will not need to identify themselves. The deadline to complete the survey is November 10. Students enrolled in the Colleges B.A.S. pro gram rst participated in the Quality of Life pr oject in Clay Coun ty in 2017. SJR State Pr esident Joe Pickens, who currently serves as chairman of the Putnam County Chamber of Commerces Boar d of Directors and is also a member of the Clay County Chamber of Commerce, was in the audience when the most r ecent Clay County Quality of Life survey results were presented. I was immediately drawn to the belief that Putnam County should be doing something similar, said Pickens. And when I learned that SJR State students were an integral part of the pr ocess, I became even more con vinced. As the College pr esident and Chamber Board chair, I saw it as a win-win for our students and the com munity. Or ganizational management instructor Aar on Knowles added, The overwhelmingly positive response from the community created interest in Putnam County. W e are hon ored to focus our atten tion on this wonderful community and allow each student to grow personally, academically and professionally thr ough the process. The Putnam County Quality of Life report gives our graduating B.A.S. students the unique opportunity to work individually with county leaders while also utilizing important research and analysis skills to provide deci sion-making information to the same lead ers, said Knowles.
