With more than 51,000 unaccompa nied Central American ch ildren already here, and more expected to come, school officials are asking the federal government for a help ing hand. B order kids costs more to educate, about $1,900 per head. Teachers must be bi lingual. The students n eed health care and psychological services because many arrive sick and traumatized by things they have seen and experienced on their journeys north. Daisy Gonzalez-Di ego, communica tions officer at the M iami-Dade County Public School, said up until now, the school district has relied on their emergency funds to help cover the costs. We are asking the federal government to help us with this additional cost, she said. We are here to help those children, we have a history of helping them, as we did when the earth quake hit Haiti, and w hen political prob lems arose in Cuba. We wont stop pro viding them an educa tion, she said. But we d ont want the (local) taxpayer to pay for it. Thats why we are ask ing for federal funds. S he said that just be fore the end of school i n June, her district saw about 300 bor der kids, coming from H onduras. We dont know how many more are coming this upcoming school year because Central America children usu ally enroll just two or t hree weeks before the school year begins, Gonzalez-Diego said. While the Palm Beach County School District says they ha vent seen an uptick of b order kids enrolling, they wont be caught off guard for the 201415 school year, which begins in August. We are accustomed to receiving an influx of children based on different situations that happen around the world, said Na talia Powers, commu nications manager for t he Palm Beach Coun ty School District. T he 2010 Haiti earthquake caused an influx of Haitian stu dents in their district. Our district and schools were ready to provide them with services, and what we cannot provide we work out with commu nity partnerships, she s aid. Powers said Palm Beach County schools are not asking for ad ditional funds right n ow, but they wont know what to expect until they get closer to the beginning of the school year. The Guatemalan Mayan Center, a Lake Worth, Fla.-based community organiza tion that offers assistance and language c lasses to immigrants, has seen an uptick in the number of immi grants seeking help. Last year, we had three students. This year weve got 50, said volunteer Micaela Mart. She said the chil dren are 5 and 7 who c ome to the center to learn English because they arrived too late for the school year. School officials in Hillsborough County, which has a large His panic population, did no t respond to a re quest for information. I n Pasco County, shelters expect to dou ble their capacity.

As July winds down to a close and we welcome August, there are couple of things that we need to be aware of for the coming week. World Breastfeeding Week Friday, August 1, through Thursday, August 7, is World Breast Feeding Week (WBW) around the world. This is the 22nd year that WBW has been celebrated. This years theme BREAST FEEDING: A Winning Goal for Life! The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) requires more early, exclusive and continued breastfeeding. Breastfeeding needs to be protected, promoted and supported by ALL. In 1990 eight global goals, The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were set by govern ments and the United Nations to fight poverty and promote healthy and sustainable develop ment in a comprehensive way, and are meant to be achieved by 2015 next year! Breastfeeding specifically targets numbers 4) Reduced Child Mortality 50-60% of the un der-5 mortality rate in the world is secondary to malnutrition. 5) Improved Maternal HealthBreastfeeding is associated with decreased breast, ovarian, and endometrial cancer as well as endometriosis and pregnancies too close together. This years WBW objectives are to show the progress towards the MDGs that have been made so far, to show the importance of stepping up the action to protect, promote and support breast feeding, and maybe most important of all, to stimulate interest in young people of both genders of the relevance of breastfeeding in the changing world of today and the future. For more information the website link is http://worldbreastfeedingweek.org/ National Night Out The first Tuesday of August is National Night Out, Americas Night Out Against Crime Start ed in 1984 and held annually every year since, it was started in an effort to raise awareness and involvement in crime prevention and police-community involvement. National Association of Town Watch (NATW) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the development and promo tion of various crime prevention programs including neighborhood watch groups, law enforce ment agencies, state and regional crime prevention associations, businesses, civic groups, and individuals, devoted to safer communities. The first National Night Out took place on Tuesday, August 7, 1984. That first year, 2.5 million Americans took part across 400 communities in 23 states. Today, National Night Out encom passes over 37.8 million people in 16,124 communities from all fifty states, U.S. Territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide. It started with the traditional lights on front porch vigil and grew into a celebration that today includes everything from block parties and parades to marches, exhibits, youth events, and safety demonstrations in an effort to heighten community relations. The idea being that once you get to know your neighbors you are more likely to look out for them on a regular basis and the lines of communication become stronger within the community and between the community and the authorities also. If you would like to join the watch, organize a group or just get more information go to http:// natw.org/ and check out the site! There is so much to see and it pays to be safe!

Nonymous Juliette Laurie Editor/Publisher Will someone please take a dirty sock and stuff it into the mouth of John McCain? I used to have respect for McCain but that was before he became a brain dead politician. This past week, on July 23, a piece of scum named Joseph Rudolph Wood was put to death in Arizona. Wood was put to death by lethal injection and because it took almost two hours for him to die in his sleep, Senator John McCain said Wood was tortured. Woods Public Defender, who is also a piece of scum for representing this dirt bag, described Woods execution as, A violation of the constitutions prohibition of cruel and unusual punishment. Are you frigging kidding me?! In 1989, Debra Dietz led an order of protection against Wood with the courts in Arizo na. Dietz and Wood had been dating but after Wood began physically assaulting Dietz she called off the relationship. On August 7, 1989, Wood walked into Debra Dietzs fathers auto repair shop. Eugene Dietz, Debras father, was on the phone with a customer. Wood waited for Eugene Dietz to hang up and then pumped a round from his revolver into Dietzs chest, then smiled at him. Wood then turned his attention to Debra Dietz, who was dialing the shops phone for help. Wood walked over to Debra, grabbed her by the neck and as Debra pleaded for Wood to spare her life, he said, I told you I was going to do it. I have to kill you. Wood pumped two rounds into Debra Dietzs chest at point blank range. Debra and Eugene lay on the oor bleeding to death while Wood watched. On July 23, 2014, Joseph Rudolph Wood looked at Jeanne Brown, who had witnessed Wood assassinate her sister and father, and laughed. This murdering scumbag did not suffer as the news would have you believe. Wood was given a cocktail mix of Midazolam, (a sedative), and Hydromorphone, (a painkiller) then went to sleep. Woods Public Defender said that Wood gasped over 600 times during the almost two hour ordeal and that it should have only taken about ten minutes for him to die. Big frigging deal! I am sick and tired of these scumbag criminals being clothed and fed with our tax dollars. Criminals are not afraid to commit murder anymore because they know that they will be taken care of and will die an easy death. I have a solution for taking care of our death row inmates. From now on, why dont we let the families have a say in how these murderers die? I bet people would think twice about committing a murder if they knew they would be tortured for days or even months. Lets not stop there though, if a man rapes a woman then he should have his private parts cut off; I bet that would stop rape. If you deliberately kill someone like Wood did, then you have no rights and deserve to die a horric death, not to just gasp for air in your sleep. To Senator McCain I would like to ask that you retract your statement. Sir you were a POW and know what cruel and unusual punishment is. How could you side with a scum bucket like Wood? Shame on you! Everyone has an opinion and this is mine. You might not agree with it, but, Thats How I See It.Wood Should Have Suffered MoreDear Editor: My neighbor said she had visitors from Georgia who came in from sitting n her front porch early one morning, saying, You wont believe what we just saw! A raccoon chasing a chicken down your street! I know that chicken. It is a feral chicken, a city chicken, I reckon, and quite pretty. Very shy, she forages for seeds and breadcrumbs around the Hubbard Park area. And, you know, not many towns in the south, even in Florida, have a resident flock of ibises, the once sacred bird of Egypt. The are such city birds, they go to the bank, the convenience stores, wherever there is attractive grass, and eat bugs, for which we can be very grateful. And lastly, the other day as I drove down South Prospect, a white peacock dashed across the street in front of me, followed by a regular peacock, followed by the tiniest dachshund barking his head off. He ran them out of his yard. It was precious. Only in Crescent City!Patricia Maden Crescent City The Putnam County Courier Journal welcomes your letters to the Editor.

More Bird StoriesDear Editor: In response to Courier Journals writer, June 4, 2014, letter to the Editor, author Angela Sanchez Tischler of Crescent City and in defense of the weekly column in the Courier Journal Thats How I see it by A. Nonymous. Please read first a quote from Tischlers letter to the Editor to which I will respond. You wrote and I quote: How long is the Courier Journal going to give platform to that miserable coward who calls himself Anonymous (since he does not show himself as a person I dont have to be civil)...I forced myself to read My Response: Do not seek to destroy written political dissent in this country. Freedom of speech and written words in this country means that your letter about A. Nonymous and his view of government are the very freedom you seek to quiet in this letter you wrote to the editor. I have copied verbatim some of the statements in Thats How I See It in previous articles in the Courier Journal whereby A. Nonymous describes the president in unpleasant terms but encourages readers to call the White House if you disagree with the presidents action on current policies. June 4, 2014: When Obama ran for office he said he would make changes and one of those benefits would to be to benefit our veterans. Obama is the worst thing that has ever happened to America. Never in history has there been such a traitor and liar than with this presidentit is high time the president acts like the commander-in-chief. I dont care if you do not agree with mecalldemand that your president do something. June 11, 2014 You say things like Obama didnt ask for this mess. He inherited itFact is he did ask for it, he spent millions of dollars campaigning for it, and now look at the mess we are in. June 18, 2014 Maybe we should all agree with John Kerry and Hillary Clinton, after all, the five deadliest criminals in the world that were just released from Guantanamo Bay dont pose a threat to the American people or our soldiers.

Braley Lillian May Braley, 84, of Hollister depart ed this world and moved to her spiritual future on Tues day, July 22, 2014. She peacefully passed at her home in Hollister with family members by her side. Affectionately known as Lill, Lily and the Sewing Lady, she is pre ceded in death by her late husband William Bill Braley, Jr., father and mother John and Edith Featherstone, and young er sister Dorothy Dot Stephanson of Souris, Manitoba, Canada. She is survived by her sister, Margaret Feather stone of Oakville, Ontar io, Canada; her four chil dren, Linda Schaub of Pahrump, Nevada, Gloria Walker of Interlachen, Sharon Overy (Scott) of Henderson, Nevada, Rick Hayes (Nicole) of Hemet, California; sev en step-children, Bonnie Manning (Glenn) of Per ry, Buster Braley (Ter ri) of Red Creek, New York, Patrick Braley (Di ane) of Winter Garden, Andrew Braley of Lou isville, Kentucky, Mark Braley of Interlachen, Shane Braley (Barba ra) of Viera, and Lorelei Braley of Maryville, Ten nessee; along with nu merous grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchil dren. Lill was a vibrant bubbly soul who touched many lives with her open heart, giving nature and timely wit. She found extreme joy in her lifelong passion being a seamstress. She never saw material she couldnt sew, or a sew ing deadline she couldnt meet. Give her a yard of material and she would make you smile with the finished product. Many a bride walked securely down the aisle with her magical touch on their gowns. Born in Winnipeg, Mani toba, Canada on Septem ber 21, 1929, she grew up learning to sew at a very early age, even sewing uniforms for the Canadi an Military during WWII as a teenager. She came to the United States in 1957, then moved with her late husband Bill to Reno, then Elko, Nevada and finally settled in Hol lister, in 1987. Always an outdoors person, her greatest joys were the mountains, the oceans, beaches, butter flies, and just nature it self. She will be greatly missed and soon will be sewing rainbows. Memorial services will be held at 5 p.m. on Fri day, August 1, 2014 at Johnson-Overturf Chap el, 307 S. Palm Ave. Palatka, with Dr. Don Aycock officiating.

Observe these simple principles for living as you con sider that verse: 1. You can have more, as long as you dont want it all for yourself. In a gen eration whose motto is look out for num ber one, we need to be reminded that Christ did not please Himself (Romans 15:3). He didnt live to enrich himself, but to enrich oth ers. You wont find a hint of selfishness in Him. Hes worthy to be called Mas ter, because He first mastered Himself by denying Himself and living for others. 2. You can get al most anything done, as long as you dont care who gets the credit. Whatev er you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus. Pride brought Satan down, and it will bring you down too. Ivan O. Miller said, Humility is such a frail and delicate thing that he who dares to think that he has it, proves by that single thought that he has it not. When you succeed and the accolades start coming your way, enjoy them briefly. Then pass them on to the true source of all your accomplishments God.

I guess I was around seven or eight years old when my grandfa ther decided I was old e nough to go hunting by myself. I remember lying in bed the night before my big hunt and thinking, Im go ing to bag the biggest b uck anyone has ever seen and Gramps will be so proud of me. The next morning, I took off on foot. I walked up an old log ging road then up a p ath to a ridge over looking a small valley w here Gramps and I had been tracking a big buck for months. I sat down under a large white oak tree and started covering myself with twigs and branches in order to camouflage myself. I was just about cov ered when I noticed a s tone with writing on it. I pulled the stone up and discov ered it was a small h eadstone. Little did I know, that I was sit ting on four graves. T he graves were all dated in the mid 1800s and needless to say my hunting trip turned into an adven ture to discover all f our headstones. Now, when I say headstones I dont mean like the ones you find in cem eteries today. These were more like flat riv er rock and you could te ll that someone had used primitive tools to etch the names and dates into the stones. I spent most of the day looking for more headstones but it seemed that there were only four, and from what I could tell, two were for kids about my age and two were adults which I concluded were the mother and father. Later that afternoon, I returned home and told my Grandfather of my find. My Grandfather knew exactly who they were and told me a story of a family that had died of yellow fever. The story had been passed down by his father to him and now he was passing it on to me. I remember telling my grandfather how sad it was that no one had taken care of the graves and that no one had bothered to keep them marked. The next morning just after sunrise, my Grandfather and I walked up the moun tain and with a few h and tools we reset the headstones of the Walker family. I re member my Grandfa ther telling me, What we just did will be for gotten in a few years u nless you pass the story on to your kids. On Wednesday, July 2, I wrote an article about a Vietnam Vet eran named Charles M Robinson, who is buried in a cemetery in Pierson. Today, Robinson lies in an unmarked grave but that will all change this coming week end thanks to a few p eople in and outside of our community. It seems that Robinson was well on his way to being forgotten but thanks to his son and a couple of people in our community, Rob insons name may v ery well live on for generations to come. At 10 a.m. Satur day, August 2, at Eva L yon Park in Crescent City, we will hold a memorial service to honor Robinson, not only for his service to our country, but also for his service to our community. Robinson worked in our com munity building hous es, pouring concrete a nd doing steelwork. Not only did he work here, he also worked in Jacksonville and was involved in the building of roads in Deltona. As I sit here writing this article I cant help but wonder how many people will show up to honor him and to keep his memory alive. Im not into the whole politics thing but I do know that our Vet erans are not treated l ike they should be. I cant help but wonder if my Grandfather was right, and 50 years from now, if people will ever know who Charles M. Robinson was. Then again, maybe 50 years from now our children will tell their kids the story of how their parents took them to Eva Lyon Park, where they honored a man who was almost forgotten. Maybe they will re member how a com munity came together a nd paid tribute to a man who fought for his country and who helped build a com munity. I w ant to share one last thing with you be fore I close, its some thing I remember my G randfather saying before he passed away. The greatest tragedy a soldier will ever have is not a missing arm or leg. The greatest tragedy a soldier will ever have is not that he was put on for eign soil to fight for h is country away from his family. The great est tragedy a soldier w ill ever have is when people forget his name and how he fought for our freedom. No, Soldier Robinson didnt run through a field of blazing bullets and save a whole pla toon of men and no, h e never received the purple heart for his service to our country, in fact, only a few peo ple in this world will e ver know he existed. Charles M. Robinson may have never had a movie written about him, but ladies and gentlemen, Charles M. Robinson was one of us, and I bet when he enlisted in the Army his thoughts were not to fight for the freedom of the whole world but to fight for the freedom of the people in his commu nity, his mother, his f ather, brother, sisters and yes, his neigh bors, us. T his Saturday, Au gust 2, at 10 a.m. s harp, Veterans from all over will come to pay their respects and what a shame it would be if one person in our community didnt show up to support not only Charles M. Robinson but the rest of our Veterans as well. After the service we will line our ve hicles up and drive t o Pierson, passing right by Soldier Rob insons grave to show t he whole world that we support our Vet erans and the men a nd women from our community who gave their lives so that we might live in the greatest community in the United States. If you plan on at tending, please let us k now on Facebook or call the Putnam Coun ty Courier Journal at 386-698-1644. I hope that you can make it this weekend. I want to thank you for reading this article and look forward to seeing you there. Be Safe.This week I am tak ing an opportunity to d epart from the se ries I was present ing, to tell you about a v ery special place, that you may or may not know about, right in your back yard.Crystal Cove Resort Over these past few months since I started writing for the Putnam Coun ty Courier Journal I h ave traveled back and forth several times from my home to Putnam County to participate with the wonderful people of this area in differ ent events.

Governor Rick Scott announced fee reduc tions for the licensing o f certain health care professionals. Due to efficiencies found and the streamlining of pro cesses, both the Florida B oard of Medicine and Florida Board of Nurs ing identified excess f ees and are passing this on as a cost sav ings to licensees. G overnor Scott said, The physicians and nurses in our state work hard to provide high quality medical care to Florida families and this fee reduction will result in $7.75 mil lion in savings for our h eath care professionals. These reductions hi ghlight our commit ment to making Florida t he best state in the nation to live and work, will allow more Floridi ans to keep their hard e arned money. The Board of Medicine will reduce the physi cian license renewal f ee for the next bienni um from $360 to $250. P hysicians renewing their license in 2015 or 2016 will pay this lower fee, which has the po tential to produce up to $ 6 million in savings that can be reinvested into Floridas economy by these medical pro fessionals. T he Florida Board of Nursing reduced the initial application and initial license fee effec tive Tuesday, July 1. A pplicants for initial li censure as a Registered N urse or Licensed Prac tical Nurse will now pay $ 100 instead of $165. It is estimated these fee reductions will result in a cost savings to new licensees of approxi mately $1.75 million e ach fiscal year. The Florida Depart ment of Health appre ciates Governor Rick S cotts leadership to find ways to reduce fees for Florida businesses. I applaud the Board of Medicines and Board of Nursings actions to reduce the fees for these valued health care pro fessionals, said State S urgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong. We will continue to find ways to help physi cians and nursing pro fessionals provide care f or Floridas children, adults and families. The Board of Med icine supports an op portunity economy in w hich every Florida physician can pursue the dream of practicing medicine in the Sun shine State, said Board o f Medicine Chair, Dr. Nabil El Sanadi. We will continue to search for ways to support the increase of licensed medical professionals in the state of Florida. Board of Nursing Chair, Lavigne A. Kirk patrick, BS, RN, said, The Board of Nursing was pleased to be able to offer this fee reduc tion as a way to encour age more recent nurs ing graduates to apply f or licensure in Florida. Our nursing profes sionals are the key to q uality health care for all residents and visi tors in the state and we w ill continue to look for ways to ease the licen sure process. One goal of the Flor ida Medical Association ( FMA) is to enhance the quality and availabil ity of health care in F lorida, said Dr. Alan Harmon, FMA Presi dent. This fee reduc tion recognizes the fi nancial commitments t hat physicians make in our state, and rep resents one small way i n which the Board of Medicine can express appreciation for their service and dedication to the residents and vis itors in Florida. W illa Fuller, Execu tive Director of the Flor ida Nurses Association, s aid, We welcome this action on behalf of all nurses in Florida, par ticularly those recent g raduates who may find the path to licensure eased by the reduced fees.
