At the annual conference of the Florida Court Clerks & Comptrollers held in Wesley Chapel, Becky Norris, President of the Association and Clerk of Gulf County, presented the Honorable Tim Smith, Putnam County Clerk of the Circuit Court, with the Clerk of the Year award. The Presidents Clerk of the Year award is a coveted award presented by the Associations President at Summer Conference each year to Clerks of the Circuit Court who have undertaken a special issue and showed leadership skills among his or her peers. Hon. Tim Smith, Putnam County, was tapped to receive a Presidents Award for his efforts in chairing the Florida Courts EFiling Authority Board of Directors. During his watch this past year, efiling for the Supreme Court and for civil cases in the trial courts became mandatory on April 1 of this year. Efiling for criminal trial court cases is set to become mandatory on October 1. Electronic filing for the district courts of appeal will be phased in over the remainder of the year. Smith said. The success we have had to date is quite remarkable but I attribute it to the hard work of all our partners. Norris commented to the membership, The work that has been accomplished by the Florida Courts E-Filing Authority is seen by many to be successful and that is due in large part not only to the e-filing board members, but to the elected clerks, and our partners the courts and the Bar committees. But, dont get me wrong, Tim Smith has been the true leader in this project, working with the Supreme Court Chief Justice Ricky Polston and the Florida Courts Technology Commission to make sure this nationally significant project moved forward to the benefit of all users. He made this effort a personal priority, and it has been noticed. We are proud to have him serving a leadership role with the association. Putnam County Clerk of the Circuit Court since 2001, Smith is an active member of this statewide association. For the past two weeks, Detective Corey Johnson with the Putnam County Sheriffs Office, Detective Bureau has been investigating a check fraud case. According to reports, suspects Lindsay Smith, Robert Ostrender, Edward Zaccheo, and Bobbie Martin have cashed fraudulent checks at Publix and Hitchocks Supermarkets. The investigation revealed that Smith obtained several checks from a friends residence without their knowledge. Smith shared the checks with Ostrender and the pair visited several unsuspecting merchants until they were able to cash the checks. Further investigation revealed that Smith obtained additional checks from a family construction company which is no longer in business. Smith shared these checks with Martin and Zaccheo. Detective Johnson concluded that Martin actually printed several checks at a local public school where she worked. Detective Johnson stated There have been four people arrested in this case so far. The amount of the checks cashed is approximately $4,600. On Friday, June 21, Smith and Ostrender were arrested and charged with multiple counts of Larceny and Fraud. Smith is being held in the Putnam County Jail with a bond in the amount of $11,048 and Ostrender is being held in the Putnam County Jail with a bond in the amount of $10,040. Zaccheo was already incarcerated at the Putnam County Jail on unrelated charges. Zaccheo was charged with one count Larceny and one count Fraud. Detective Johnson obtained a warrant for Martin for the charge of Scheming to Defraud. On Friday, June 28, Martin was arrested in neighboring Flagler County. A fifth suspect has been identified in this case and charges are pending.

I had never really had friends outside of family. Most of my free time was spent with cousins and or nephews and nieces. Having siblings old enough to be my parents meant that their older children were nearly my age. My little brother, Jimmy, was four years younger than me. He was already an uncle four times when he was born. Across the canal from us was a family from Brooksville and the boys were around my age. They, like me spent their summers at Weeki Wachi. We became instant friends. These guys knew how to have fun. They had a 16 foot, flat bottom, wooden boat with a small out-board. We lived in that boat. One of our favorite past times was gigging mullet. This could only be done legally on the Gulf side of the road which divided our community. That was regarded as salt water yet; it was clear and fresh and fed by the Weeki Wachi. One of us guys would stand in the front of the boat with the long pole gig. One of us sat in the back and operated the motor. The other two rode along and we would take turns with the gig. We would come up behind a school of mullet which would swim ahead of us. We would go the same speed as the fish and simply gig them one at a time. Our Mamas could fry up those mullet just fine. Talk about fresh fish! Good stuff. I recall an interesting adventure we had in that boat. All of us were just cruising up the river. We were smoking cigarettes and stopping here and there to swim and snorkel. As I have mentioned before, the Weeki Wachi was crystal clear. It was all wild and on weekdays we had it all to ourselves. Skinny dipping was the preferred swimming, non-attire. (Having fun required some naughtiness, of course.) This particular day, as we all navigated the river; we saw a huge hornets nest hanging out over the water. Instantly, we knew we had to something exciting with that nest. It was decided that we would turn the boat around and while going as fast as we could with the current, one of us would whack that hornets next with an oar and knock it into the water. Sounded like fun. It would have been except for one little problem. When whacked, the darn nest landing in the middle of the boat instead of the river. Four naked boys bailed out of that boat instantly and left the boat running. Eventually the boat beached itself a little way down the river. We boys had a problem; our bathing suits were in that boat with the nest. We could have swam home and towed or pushed the boat, staying underwater while we did so. However, we could not go home without bathing suits. One could say we boys were in a pickle. Next week, Ill tell you how it all worked out. Oh, and no one got stung, in itself, a remarkable accomplishment.Back to Weeki WachiLloyd Harris Local crime hot spots will be listed here weekly. This weeks hot spots are: Oakwood Street Walnut Street If you witness any criminal activity in this area, you are asked to leave a recorded message with the Crescent City Police Department Hot Tip Line by calling 386-698-3478. As always, in any emergency situation you are asked to call 911.Crescent City Police Department Needs Your HelpLetters to the Editor Fitness Center UpdateDear Editor: To update all our friends and neighbors on our progress at a Putnam Family Fitness Center (PFFC) special membership meeting held Saturday, June 22, 2013 in the Pomona Park Community Center, the following was discussed as we plan our move from the Crescent City area to Pomona Park: The community generously raised $10,345 to meet the estimated remodeling and moving needs of $10,000 before the costly required ADA (American with Disabilities Act) changes were known. $4,103 has been spent to date leaving a balance of $6,242. The Phase I estimated cost to complete = $6800 (The required work has been divided into three phases, and we will be able to receive a Temporary Certificate of Occupancy upon passing inspection at the completion of Phase I.) The estimated date of July 3 is seen as a reality for completion of Phase I and the move is planned to begin July 11 (weather permitting & barring any unforeseen obstacles). There are no more funds for Phases II and III. The estimated cost to complete the final Phases = $14,800. Grants do not appear to be available. Board Vice-Chairmen Dr. Bonnie Harrison, our experienced grant writer, reported on June 22 that all efforts to obtain grants and sponsorships to date have been denied or are pending. CONCLUSION: Grants and sponsorships cannot be depended upon in the immediate future. We must do it ourselves. If we can raise the needed money, PFFC can complete the ADA requirements within six to eight weeks. It is important that we comply with these ADA needs as quickly as possible. This remaining work includes two restrooms and the outside parking area, walkway and ramp Here are some suggestions as to how you can help: Localities: Pomona Park Neighborhood Watch is planning another Fish Fry. (They have already donated $1700 from a previous Fish Fry for which we are very grateful.) If the Lake Como, Satsuma, Welaka, Crescent City, Georgetown, and Fruitland areas could do the same, it would be a wonderful help. Small Businesses-Restaurants: We have donation boxes. If you would consider having one at your cash register, perhaps the cashier could say, We support the PFFC. Would you like to donate your change or a few dollars? If you can help us and want a donation box, contact Jim Foerster, 649-4752 Membership: If you are already a PFFC member, we thank you and ask that you encourage your friends and neighbors to join too. Individuals: If you want to help there are several means: Donations, Pledges, Membership Contact CarrieAnn or June at PFFC @ 698-2342 for further information or to offer your suggestions and/or offers of help.

Sorrells Family Reunion Six members of the Sorrells family were together in Crescent City last week for the rst time in 59 years. In attendance were Oral, Wiley, Robert, David, Esther and Molly and some of their spouses. Oral had been with some of them a few years ago but this was the rst time they had all been together at one time. Oral and wife, Mary live in Crescent City, Wiley and his wife, Joy live in Pensacola, all of the others live in Pennsylvania. Oral and Wiley attended school in Crescent City, played football and other sports. It was fun listening to the family talking about Crescent City, then and now and how some things have changed. What a pretty town with the church, ag ying over the park, the greenery and lovely Oak trees. They remembered Happs Restaurant, Clayton Franks Funeral Home, Ronnie Hughes at the newspaper, Thomas Drug Store, Leons Dry Goods and etc. Everyone enjoyed the beach, cooking out, eating and visiting. What a great time for the entire family. Oral said usually, the only time there is one of these types of get-togethers is when someone in the family dies. The family wants to change that. They plan on many more of these family get-togethers in the future. Congratulations Great Grandma Linda Robson is so happy to announce a double blessing to her family twin great grandsons, Andrew Joseph and Adam James.

Crescent City has been home to a number of persons with grand talent over the years. One such person was Harry Burney, III. His parents were noted educators in the community, and elsewhere. Harry carved his own niche in musical production and musical theatre here and in other areas as well. The following is an excerpt from an article that appeared in the July 1, 1987, issue of the Courier-Journal. Harry Burney has lead in Seaside production Crescent City native Harry Burney III, in the role of Daniel Webster, sings of his success in life and his condence in challenging the Devil, in Seaside Music Theaters production of The Devil and Daniel Webster. A pleasant break in the hot summer routine is an evening or afternoon at the Seaside Music Theater in Daytona at DBCC Theater Center. The 1987 summer schedule includes some of everyones favorites: Guys and Dolls, The Student Prince, The Sound of Music, Trouble in Tahiti and The Devil and Daniel Webster. The music is very melodic and lled with rich American folk tradition. Crescent Citys own Harry Burney III sings the role of Daniel Webster.

What the hospital administrator called a series of events that took some of us by surprise likely will result in the loss of two of the hospitals three accredited obstetricians and its nurse-midwife staff by December 31.25 years agoJuly 8, 1938 Marine Studios Officially Opens One of the longest throngs in Floridas history, estimated at about 25,000 turned out last Friday afternoon for the dedications and formal opening of Marine Studios giant aquarium at Marineland, eighteen miles south of St. Augustine. The crowd began to arrive early and by the time the ceremonies began at 2:30 p.m. all the parking space for miles was jammed and roads were lined with cars that were still arriving for several hours afterwards. July 4, 1963 Lake Crescent Estates Being Developed Lake Crescent Estates about four miles north of Crescent City between US Highway 17 and Lake Crescent, is being developed for retirement cottages, week end camp sites and trailer lots. In an attractive folder advertising the Estates, there is a map of Crescent City together with local scenes, and a description of our city and nearby area, stressing the recreation attractions.50 years ago 10 years agoJuly 9, 2003 A Multi-cultural Fourth! Those who attended the Fourth of July picnic in Eva Lyon Park were treated to food, fun and entertainment from many parts of the world. The Community Choir kicked off the festivities singing a melody of patriotic songs. Featured after the choir was a group of young Laotian dancers in their native costumes presenting a Lam Poo Thai dance. There is no one person responsible for the wonderful display of patriotism. Each year it is a joint effort between citizens in the community working together for a common cause. Compiled from the Crescent City News, Crescent City Journal, Crescent City Courier Journal, Putnam County Courier Journal and other local news sources. 5 years agoJuly 2, 2008 Cleanup is scheduled for July 19 In just over four months, Relay for Life Between the Lakes achieved something that takes many communities a year to accomplish.

The projected net income from the event is $18,000. The theme, Celebrating Diversity Cookin up a Cure, was highlighted with nearly 20 teams participating. Way Back When...Annual Drinking Water Quality ReportThe Department of Environmental Protection has performed a Source Water Assessment on the citys system. These assessments are conducted to provide information about any potential of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. A domestic wastewater facility was identied as a potential source of contamination. Even though the domestic wastewater facility was identied as a potential source of contamination, monitoring of this situation has not shown any indication of contamination. The assessment results are available on the DEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state. .us/swapp This report is designed to inform you about the water quality and services the city delivers to the citizens every day. The citys constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. The city wants you to understand the efforts that are taken to continually improve the water treatment process and protect the water resources. The city is committed to ensuring the quality of the citizens water. The water source is ground water from wells. The wells draw from the Floridian Aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of the citys water, the only treatment required is chlorine for disinfection purposes, aeration to remove hydrogen sulde and caustic soda for corrosion and pH. We aim to provide the best quality water to you, the customer, at the lowest possible price. If you have questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Jason Brammeier at 386-698-2525. You are encouraged, as valued customers, to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of the regularly scheduled board meetings. They are held on the second Thursday of each month. Crescent City water systems routinely monitors for contaminants in the drinking water according to federal and state laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012. As authorized and approved by the EPA, the state has reduced monitoring requirements for certain contaminants to less often than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants are not expected to vary signicantly from year to year. In the table below, you may nd unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms weve provided the following denitions: Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: the highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: the level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. Action Level (AL): the concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow. ND means not detected and indicated that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis. Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample. Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts weight of the water sample. Picocurie per liter (pCi/l) measures the radioactivity in water. Paid AdvertisementPublic Service AnnouncementPALATKA, FL Beck Chrysler, Dodge Jeep and Ram have partnered in an initiative to expand their customer base. The bulk of this initiative to assist those who have had challenges with credit. As a result of market conditions such as the mortgage crisis and economic downturn, this segment has ballooned in recent years.

Master Gardeners constantly stress safety when working in the garden Dont leave garden rakes lying about with the prong side up, Dont grab hand railings or branches without looking under them first as wasps have a tendency to construct nests under and in things this time of year, and, Always wear gloves in the garden, especially when cleaning out under bushes. However, even with all the care we take, there are still surprises, as I found, when I wanted to check the dampness of the soil in a ceramic pot hanging from a tree limb four feet off the ground that housed my Pitcher plant. Instead of damp soil, my finger touched something smooth, round, and warm, and, when I looked down, red. It is amazing that a person of my age can spring upward and backward at the same time, while speaking in tongues. When my breathing stabilized, I returned to the pot, using a small stick to separate the foliage, found that my visitor was a Red Corn snake, and not a Coral snake. Once you have seen the gorgeously colored Coral snake, with its black snout and broad bands of red and black separated by bright yellow (red on yellow, kill a fellow; red on black, its o.k. Jack), you will never mistake them for similar colored nonvenomous mimics as Scarlet snakes, Scarlet King or Milk snake, and the Corn snake. Corn snakes eat mice, frogs, birds and, if you keep hens, you will often find them in nests after the eggs. They come in a large range of colors from lavender to grey to apricot and reds. Because of their placid nature, they are a favorite choice for pets. They will bite if provoked, but I do not intentionally provoke snakes. I wished it well, and went back to my chores. Because of the shortage of rain in May and June, I did not want to stress the plants, so I did very little weeding and pruning. I allow many weeds to grow in my garden, as they are host and nectar plants for the beneficials. A particular favorite of butterflies is Bidens Alba (Shepherds/Spanish needles). It is one of the few plants to flower, even during extremely cold weather, so it is a good food source for the butterfly. However, it grows like crazy when the weather is hot and rain is plentiful. It is not a favorite of mine at this time of year as it seems to grow to four feet overnight, and the small, coarse daisy-like flowers produce flat black needles that look like exploding fireworks. They stick to everything and every seed that hits the ground seems to germinate. Ordinarily I love my Loquat tree and the fruit it produces, but this years bountiful crop has produced an army of seedlings that are sprouting everywhere. Crawling around under bushes pulling up baby Loquat trees reminded me that I had another garden chore that I had put off much too long. Normally, I try to hand prune bushes, as that is the best way I know to control the new growth. However, this is impossible with the long run of the pittosporum hedge that runs next to the house, so I had my lawn maintenance people use power shears to lower the height by a foot and also to shear the sides vertically. Visually, the hedge now looks awful, but now I can see what is happening on the inside of the hedge. The hedge is at least 15-years-old and four feet in height. Every time the height is sheared, new growth appears at the top, but any bottom growth has to grow out to the edge of the hedge to get light instead of producing growth from the base. Now I am going back with hand clippers, and removing dead and diseased branches, cutting back the lateral growth to a bud, and cutting older branches back to a height that is a foot below my desired height. This is tough love indeed for a hedge of this age and size, and I hope the pittosporums forgive me, and can reestablish a healthy growth pattern. July and August are months when I let the vegetable garden rest. The tomatoes are mostly done, as they hate the heat and humidity, as do I. Now is a good time to solarize the vegetable garden in preparation for the fall planting. This process will take about six weeks to kill the weeds, nematodes, and soil diseases. First, remove all vegetation from the beds, break up the soil, and cover with dark plastic and let the beds cook until you are ready to prepare them for planting. I hope you planted some summer-blooming bulbs such as day lilies, spider lilies, and agapanthus. Bulbs, such as these, add drama and color to the garden when it is beginning to look washed out from the heat. Spider lilies are close cousins to the Crinum lily as they are both members of the amaryllis family, and are native to the U.S. They grow happily in wet locations, so make sure to keep them well watered. If you feel you must plant something, stick with bedding plants such as celosia, coleus, torenia, and ornamental peppers. Geraniums would be thankful if you moved them so they received some shade, and remember to water hanging baskets and pots on a daily basis. Now is a good time to plant palms. If you already have some in your landscape, remember not to prune them or remove their boots (old leaf bases). Palms do not have bark, so they have no way to heal cuts or punctures. If you, or whoever maintains your lawn, use a weed whacker, remind them to stay at least 12 inches away from the trunks of any tree or palm. Remember that lawn irrigation is restricted, until the first Sunday in November, to two times per week on the scheduled days, and no more than one hour of irrigation per zone. Research for the above is courtesy of IFAS (Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences) and the Putnam County Extension Service, a joint project of the University of Florida and Putnam County.

Keep Putnam Beautiful Receives Grant From LowesKeep Putnam Beautiful (KPB) received a $5,000 grant award from Lowes Home Improvement Center in 2012 to enhance the natural environments at Water Works Environmental Education Center (WWEEC) located in Palatka. Thanks to the Lowes contribution, KPB now has new ecological demonstration areas that include a sandhill habitat with native xeric-adapted plants, gopher tortoises, and box turtles, a shady hardwood hammock (forest) with the Puc Puggy Nature Trail passing through it, and a steep-head slope forest along the fence between Water Works and Ravine Gardens State Park. More than 50 native plant species have been added to these habitats to supplement their species richness. Over 40 professionally-prepared plant identification signs have been erected next to unique native plants along each of these sites. The current efforts at WWEEC are to restore the wetlands associated with White Water Branch. This steep-head stream drains Ravine Gardens and Water Works and flows directly into the St. Johns River. The stream had been badly abused when it was the main source of the water supply for the town of Palatka. KPBs intention is to restore portions of the stream to its former appearance 80 years ago. Enhancing the natural environment and educational aspects of WWEEC was the purpose of the grant. The planting of native, non-invasive species enriches and compliments the educational experience of the visitors, particularly the children engaged at WWEEC through school field trips and summer programs. Each habitat will provide teaching opportunities related to conservation, preserving wildlife, and re-establishing native plant species. The dry sandhill-tortoise demonstration area provides excellent opportunities to teach water conservation practiced by both plants and animals and the importance of keystone species like the gopher tortoise, which through its extensive burrows, provides homes for more than 300 other animal species, many of which are found no other place in the world. These and other stories show how ecosystems are connected and the importance for maintaining the integrity of these special places. A walk along the developing trails with the opportunities for linkages to the Bartram Trail system in Putnam County will provide an occasion for hikers and bikers to investigate the diversity of habitats, plants, and animals of this resourcerich region. KPB and the WWEEC Advisory Council are very thankful to Lowes for funding these project improvements, and to the Lowes Heroes who helped construct the fence for the tortoise preserve. The WWEEC is open to the public each Wednesday from 8 am-12 pm, and the first Sunday of each month, from 1:305 p.m. For more information call KPB, 386-325-9598.

Scavenger Hunt Children enjoy hunting for hidden treasure. A scavenger hunt gives them a chance to explore, get some exercise and think creatively. Select some common things for your kids to find -playing cards, pinecones, or shiny rocks -and hide them around the house and yard. Compile a list and give point values to each item -the harder the hiding spot, the more points its worth. Have children take bags and start hunting! Once time is up, check the found items and add the points. Knock, Knock Encourage your young jokesters to spend the afternoon crafting some unique stand-up routines. To create an authentic comedy-club feel, find a brick wall to use as a backdrop, lend your kids your loudest sports coats and punch up their punch lines with your best ba-dum-TSH. A child who doesnt want to tell jokes can be the emcee, introducing the performers and encouraging the crowd to enjoy the show. For a free sampler of summertime activities, recipes and crafts for parents and kids visit www.Quirkbooks.com. With a little imagination, even the most boring day can quickly turn memorable! July 3, 2013 COURIER JOURNAL Section B I managed to lose the article I just wrapped up, so this will be an attempt to put it back together. Anyway, I made the recent Aaron Hernandez alleged murder case in North Attleboro, Massachusetts, as the starting point for the article, and expressed my concern about just how thorough Urban Meyer and his staff were when they recruited him. Here is a kid who came from a tough neighborhood in Bristol, Connecticut, and had some disciplinary problems in high school. Hernandez even associated with the wrong people back in those days. (Im assuming that Meyer recruited him and not his predecessor.) Right off hand, one would gure a red ag should have been ying over Hernandez, but those red ags are somehow ignored if the raw talent is there, and the coaching staff has an understanding person on board that knows how to handle problem players. It would be interesting to know if there were schools that passed on him back in 2007, due to his background. Nevertheless, Meyer took up the challenge and, I guess, soon discovered he had a problem. I dont recall seeing anything in the press during Floridas championship years that indicated Hernandez caused headaches with the program. I very well could have overlooked that since the Gators were ying high, and this kid from Connecticut was one heckuva ball player. At 6 and 245 pounds, Hernandez was tough and multitalented. He could catch the ball, run very well after the catch, and was an excellent blocker. When you have those talents, then I guess bad things that occur are overlooked. His love affair with rearms did not surface until he turned pro in 2010-11. He fell to the fourth round due to problems at Florida, which I dont think were common knowledge, but I could be wrong. This nasty little mean streak could have very well started in Gainesville, as authorities are now reopening a shooting fatality back in 2007. One of the consistent common modus operandi used was shooting from a moving car, so he could be implicated in that case. I guess he was overwhelmed about ending up with the Patroits and heading back in his old stomping grounds. He did a terri c job for that team in the two or three years he was with them, and, as a reward, was signed to a $41,000,000 ve-year contract not long ago. Looks as though he got back with his hood buddies from that area and felt at home. One of his former team mates was quoted as saying, when asked about Aaron Hernandez, words to the effect that he never bought into Aaron Hernandez. Not a attering remark, to say the least. No doubt about it, he has not been proven guilty of pulling the trigger, or being directly involved in the killing, so that will have to play out according to the law, but the evidence is strong on the involvement side. If you watched the NBA playoffs this year, and had maybe watched them in the past, it would be dif cult not to say they were the most competitive in years. The odds-on favorite, the Miami Heat, did win it, and the opponent in the nals, (which for once I predicted would be there) showed the world what basketball is all about at the highest level. The odds-on favorite to win the Most Valuable Player award, LaBron James, did in fact win it, as he has an out of the world playoff performance. I do believe, though, that had the seventh game been in San Antonio, the Spurs might have eaked out a victory. Tony Parker had plenty of help throughout the series, but in the end, it was depth that made the difference Whats the ScoreDudley Sargent Sports Writer & FACES PLACES Fun Summer Activities for Parents and KidsSpecial to theCourier Journal The June tournament of the Astor Bass Club was held at Midway Marine on the St. Johns River in Astor on Sunday, June 9.

It was 2 a.m., and I sat sniveling in my pajamas at my computer. I had decided to call my sister in the morning before our families got together for the 4th of July festivities and tell her I would not be writing a humorous book about organizing household finances with her. The reason was simple I had no business telling anyone what to do when it came to money. At the not-so-tender age of 59 I had no retirement, no savings and I was $26,000 in credit card debt! The book we were to write together would absolutely get me out of debt, but my ethics would not allow me to be part of a lie. No way could I write a do-as-Isay-not-as-I-do book. That was July 4, 2002, and one of those major pivotal moments in my life. I know how George Bailey in the movie A Wonderful Life, felt standing on the bridge contemplating suicide, although I was never even close to doing that, I sent out a major request, Help me God, help me. God breezes can come in strange ways. My God breeze came in the form of a question. How old have you been acting when it comes to your finances? Id never put an age to my financial behavior. It was hard to answer the question at first, so I asked a question. What do you mean? Well, think about it, the questioner continued, you are 59-years-old and you arent concerned in the least about your retirement. You have the optimism of a child, when you see something you want you charge it. You use your credit cards as if they are your source of income. You know what the experts on finance all say is true, but you dont want to mind them. Should I go on? NO! I get it! The list made me think of my granddaughter McKenzie. Id just taken her shopping and she was a little I-Want machine. She had no concern for the cost or how shed pay for it; she just wanted it, NOW. She was nine-years-old. Okay, nine! I said to my Interrogator. Yes, Pam Young, you have an inner child, age nine, who has been running your books and if you want to help others who are in similar financial circumstances, get to know this little one, name her, get her cooperation and you will get out of debt. Oh, and you will enjoy the ride. An angel came to me that night, but she wasnt an old man with a copy of Tom Sawyers Huckleberry Finn, she was a little girl with pigtails, freckles and a pouty mouth. She is my inner child complete with all the attributes of a nineyear-old, including the immaturity. I named her Nelly, because I perceived her as a real brat like the Nelly on Little House on the Prairie. I even built a website in her honor and called it the Brat Factor, because at the time I truly perceived Nelly as a really, really big brat. Every July 4th, I not only celebrate our countrys independence, I celebrate my conscious relationship with Nelly and my freedom from unwanted behaviors. I no longer call Nelly a brat and Ive even changed the name of my website to www. makeitfunanditwillgetdone.com, which of course was Nellys idea. In eleven short years she has gone from a brat to a happy child and with her cooperation I was able to get out of debt, lose thirty-five pounds and continue enjoying my life with child-like joy! Why not live by her motto: Make it fun and it will get done and watch what happens? For more from Pam Young go to www. makeitfunanditwillgetdone.com. Youll find many musings, videos of Pam in the kitchen preparing delicious meals, videos on how to get organized, ways to lose weight and get your finances in order, all from a reformed SLOBs point of view. July 3, 2013 Courier Journal B3 From a Life Stricken by Poverty to Discovering Truth, Passion, Purpose and the Favor of GodFrom Food Stamps to Favor is a triumphant story about Kandra Alburys transition from a life stricken by poverty to discovering her truths, passions, purpose and the favor of God. Albury speaks in detail about how growing up on the system shaped her life and drove her success. Her story tells of a woman of faith and strength who refused to fall prey to her circumstances. When Albury found herself walking in her mothers shoes as a divorced mom of two at 27, she resorted to her mothers endearing example of determination, wisdom and love to beat the odds. She turned to her grandparents legacy of faith and perseverance to help her daughter overcome the abuse she faces at the hands of her father. In From Food Stamps to Favor, Albury candidly shares her testimony in a way that will grip your heart. Sometimes we are ashamed to talk about where we come from, Albury says in her memoir. Although I am grateful for my humble beginnings, I, too, for many years was embarrassed by a poverty-sickened past, but since my conscious (the Holy Spirit) kept nagging me, I knew it was time to write about my journey from poverty to prosperity prosperity being the discovery of my peace, calling, gifts and purposes in life. In this powerful story of triumph, you will come to know the grace thats made available to you no matter what circumstance you are facing. Alburys story immediately encouraged me, says Kennisha Hill, President of NyreePress. I was instantly touched from the very beginning. I appreciate Alburys transparency. It will help and encourage every reader who feels stuck in their lives. Albury shows readers how they too were born to beat the odds! Alburys childrens book Dont You Dare Touch You There! will be released next month. This colorful, rhyming book empowers children to stand up for themselves and to tell when someone is touching them inappropriately. In the back of the book is a Promise to Tell and Listen agreement for the child and parent/guardian to sign and date. The book will allow children and their parents to have much needed dialogue around this sensitive yet important topic. Albury was born and raised in Crescent City. She is married to James C. Albury and is the proud mother of three. She and her family reside in Gainesville. She has a bachelors degree in communications from the University of North Florida, a masters degree in mass communications from the University of Florida and a Ph.D. in ministerial education from Truth Bible University. From Food Stamps to Favor is now available through major online retailers. Learn more about From Food Stamps to Favor by visiting KandraAlbury. org. Albury will be having a book talk and signing on Saturday, July 6, from 1:30 3 p.m. at the Crescent City Public Library. She encourages parents and guardians to bring their children because she will be reading Dont You Dare Touch Me There! aloud. Excerpts from From Food Stamps to Favor will also be read.

And while this may pose a challenge when it comes to supporting local nonprofit organizations, there are ways you can give back to the community, no matter what your schedule or financial situation looks like. Here are three simple ideas for making a positive contribution, whether youre strapped for time, resources or both: Use Your Work Day Youre probably pretty busy juggling family and work obligations. Chances are you really want to volunteer in your community but may not always have the time to do as much as youd like. This doesnt mean that lending a helping hand is out of reach for you. Consider starting a Volunteer Day initiative at your workplace, where the whole team offers their time to local nonprofit community service projects one afternoon every few months. Your boss may love the idea if you remind him or her that such an effort will be great for team building. Or check with your human resources department about the possibility of paid time off to volunteer in the community. There may be opportunities at your company of which you are not aware. Nominate a Nonprofit You dont need to be a big donor to help secure substantial support for organizations doing great work. For example, a program called 50 States for Good enables people to nominate their favorite community organizations to help gain funding for grassroots community programming. It is designed to make it easier for regular folks to give back, and is funded by Toms of Maine, a leading natural products company focused on oral and personal care. Anyone who is heartened by the work of local nonprofit organizations can nominate their favorite for a chance to share in $150,000 in funding. A panel of independent judges then determines 51 finalists, one from each state and the District of Columbia. Fifteen organizations will be awarded $10,000 each, as determined by a public vote in September. In past years, Toms of Maine has funded States for Good projects that have built community playgrounds, maintained sustainable nature trails, provided shelter and food for the homeless and cared for animals, among many other initiatives. Now in its fifth year, States for Good celebrates and rewards nonprofit organizations committed to meaningful change and work that addresses local needs. To nominate an organization via a short essay, visit www.50statesforgood. com through July 8. Multitask Walking the dog? Taking the kids to the park? Consider combining your stroll with a mini cleanup. Bring a plastic bag, wear gloves and pick up litter as you go. Not only will you be beautifying the neighborhood, youll be helping to prevent harmful garbage from entering local waterways. Get the kids involved to teach them an important lesson about how their behaviors can make a larger impact. You dont need to be Bill and Melinda Gates to make a meaningful impact. There are creative ways that make it possible for anyone to give back to their community. Special to theCourier Journal
