Pastor is a 'Special Blessing'


By Members of the FPC
C. David Trimmier, born
January 17, 1948, in Augusta,
Georgia, he is the son of Nor-
man Page and Edna Mae
Reaves Trimmier. As a child he
attended St. Albans Episcopal
Church in Augusta, where he
was baptized.
David attended George P.
Butler High School in Augusta.
He and his future wife, Carolyn
met when he was a senior and
she was a sophomore. After
falling in and out of various
relationships, David in Viet-
nam and Carolyn in Augusta,
the Lord dramatically brought
them into contact with each
other once again. Due to his'
mother's illness David
returned home and was dis-
charged from the Marine
Corps. They were married
April 8, 1971.
After David's conversion in
1972, they began a family life
that was centered around
Christ and His Word. God has


blessed them with four won-
derful children. They have two
sons, Chris and Scotty and two
daughters, Alana and Paige.
Paige is married to Nat Malkus.
David served in the military
Dom 1968-1970, attended
Augusta Tech from 1971-1976
and graduated with a diploma
in Drafting and Design. His
ministry in education began at
Columbia Bible College in
1977 and after graduation from
Reformed Theological Semi-
nary in 1984 he was licensed
and ordained by Mississippi
Valley Presbytery at Dekalb,
Mississippi. He served in the
First Presbyterian Church,
Dekalb, Mississippi 1984-1986,
Chattanooga Valley Presbyter-
ian Church, Flintstone, Geor-
gia 1986-1989 and at Indian
River Mission, New Smyrna
Beach, Florida 1989-1992.
Rev. Trimmier first came to
pastor this congregation in
1993. Five years later, in 1998,
he was lead by the Lord to the


Friendship Presbyterian
Church in Laurens, South Car-
olina. In 2000 he again
received a call from the con-
gregation of The First Presby-
terian Church of Frostproof.
He and his wife Carolyn
beseeched God to direct them
in this momentous decision.
Knowing that God had accom-
plished what he had sent them
to South Carolina to do, they
needed His guidance now
more than ever. Carolyn's
mother was ill. She needed to
be close to offer her father sup-
port. Scotty missed the friends
he had made in Frostproof Fol-
lowing a rough patch in the life
of this church, we needed Rev.
Trimmier and his gentle love
for the people of Frostproof.
It has been five years now
since the Lord led him back to
us. We appreciate his strong
preaching of the Word and his
concern for the spiritual life of

Mentoring makes children lives healthier


Florida Department of Health
employees account for more
than 11 percent (642 employees)
of the nearly 6,000 state employ-
ees who mentor. As such, the.
department ranks second behind
the Department of Corrections in
the total number of employees
Swho mentor.
"Mentoring makes a dramatic
impact in a child's life. By spend-
ing an hour a week, you can
make a world of difference to a
young Floridian," said Health
SSecretary and co-chair of the
Florida Mentoring Partnership.
SJohn O. Agwunobi, M.D., M.B.A.,
I1
The Florida Mentoring Part-
nership, formerly known as the
Governor's Mentoring Initiative,
has demonstrated that children
who are reentored are more like-
ly to .1 ,, iin school, more likely to
get higher scores on the Florida
'r.,,.n.i.. Achievement
Test (FCAT), less likely to have
disciplinary problems, and less
likely to engage in unhealthy
habits or activities.
Mentoring also has a positive
effect on adolescent health,
according to research published
in the March 2005 issue of the
American Journal of Public
Health. A nationwide study
found that "respondents who
Reported a mentoring relation-
Sship were more likely to exhibit
Favorable outcomes relating to
education/work," reduce prob-
Slem behaviors such as physical
fights and gang membership,
improve self-esteem, and
:increase physical and other
Shealth-promoting activities.
However, the study also shows
that while mentors are impor-
tant to adolescents, mentors are
not a substitute for parents and


teachers.
Currently, Department of
Health employees mentor or vol-
unteer at 281 sites in 51 Florida
counties. The department is also
conducting a pilot test this year
with a team of up to four men-
tors with one adult working


with one child once each week
over the course of a year. The 13
Read For Health Teams partici-
pating in the pilot project help
the students with homework or
they use an approved science
and health curriculum to help
students improve their reading


skills. Of the 43 employees par-
ticipating in the project, 91 per-
cent are new to mentoring this
year.

Crist warns consumers of new twist on old scam


Attorney General Charlie Crist
advised consumers of a new and
aggressive financial scam that
leaves no Floridian immune from
attack including the Attorney
General himself. Last week, Crist
received two cashier's checks
totaling $21,000 attempting to
draw the Attorney General into
the latest vAriation of a familiar
scam.
For more than two decades,
authorities have battled an inter-
national mail scheme commonly
known as the "Nigerian Bank
Scam." In its traditional form, the
scam involves a promise that an
individual will pay the victim from
a large pool of money being held
overseas, if the victim first sends a
smaller amount of money as
"security." The victim sends the
money but then never again
hears from the sender.
Recently, a new twist on the
old system has emerged. In this


variation, the victim receives a
cashier's check in the mail or via
overnight delivery. The check is
for a large sum of money from
what appears to be a nationally
recognized banking institution.
No explanation accompanies the
check, but the victim may attempt
to deposit it into his or her bank
account. Should the victim's bank
accept the deposit, the check is
routed to the financial institution
of origin, where it is discovered
that the account has been closed.
The check is then forwarded to
the original holder of the closed
account, who now has the vic-
tim's banking information.
It can take some time for the
victim to realize that the integrity
of his or her bank account has
been compromised.
"The audacity of these crimi-
nals is breathtaking," said Crist.
"It's clear that these scam artists
will stop at nothing, and spare no


PCC to hold Senior

College's admission, advising,

dures, registration and support

ship during the night. For further

one, in their shameless ploy to
make a quick buck. This is a vivid
reminder that if something
sounds too good to be true, it
probably is. It is important that all
Florida consumers are aware of
this threat."
Crist is a leader in efforts
against identity theft and other
scams, and immediately recog-
nized that the cashier's checks
were of dubious authenticity. He
contacted the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement to alert them

to the scheme. FDLE confirmed
that the checks are indeed part of
a scam, and said it appears to be a
variant on the traditional Nigerian
check scam. FDLE is now investi-
gating this new development.
Consumers who receive any
type of similar cashier's check or
solicitation to participate in an
advanced pay scheme should
immediately contact their local
U.S. Secret Service office. Attor-
ney General Crist also offers these
suggestions to avoid becoming


the victim of such a scheme:
Avoid providing your person-
al or banking information to any
unknown person or business.
If you receive a request for
personal or banking information
from an unknown person or busi-
ness, do not reply in any manner.
Avoid any behavior that
might result in the compromised
integrity of any personal informa-
tion, including bank account
numbers and credit information.
Detailed information on identi-


ty theft prevention and steps to
take if one becomes a victim can
be found at

tytheft.

Law Enforcement suggests that

tion to protect themselves from

Did you know that every hour
10 Floridians are newly diagnosed
with cancer? This year 97,000
Floridians will have to face can-
cer. There is hope! Due to
research and new medicine fund-
ed in part from the American Can-
cer Society the survival rate for
cancer has gone from 28% twenty
years ago (the year of the first


Relay) to 64% today. With your
help researchers can do even
more to eliminate this horrible
disease. Join the fight against can-
cer and team up at the annual
'Relay for Life' on April 22 and
23rd. If you have any questions
please contact Sandy Sackett at
