Democratic candidate dies in fall…Encore Focus on the Family movie…Volunteering great option for grads…National Police week…Political signs deadline is Friday (Tuesday News)

National Salvation Army Week     May 11-17

National Police Week:  a time to remember Law Enforcement Officers across the nation and here in the Piedmont who gave their lives in the line of duty. BTW: This Thursday (May 15) is National Peace Officer’s Memorial Day….please take a moment to remember the families of our fallen law enforcement.

Strawberries are ‘in’.  Peak season for strawberries -now through early June. FYI: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays are typically ‘slow’ days to pick your own. Find a strawberry farm near you (by county) www.ncstrawberry.com/map.cfm?reg=mid

Political campaigns may seem like they go on forever, but city and county officials say that they will soon start removing political signs. Candidates have 10 days following an election to remove signs that have been in the rights of way. Campaigns could get fined $50 a sign past the Friday deadline. http://www.journalnow.com/news/elections/local/

 A special encore presentation of ‘Irreplaceable’, a documentary from Focus on the Family happening this Thursday (May 15) at 7:30pm at select theaters.   www.IrreplaceableTheMovie.com

Class of 2014: The waiting is the hardest part, so go do something.   It’s been about five years since the recession ‘officially’ ended, but there is still a sizable group of young high school and college grads who are still in transition… they are not working, nor enrolled in college. How about volunteering or doing an internship… Most (if not all) non-profit organizations always need help.  You never know how the Lord will use your talents and how that could land you an ‘opportunity’.

 Unexpected: Keith Crisco, who was battling Clay Aiken for the Democratic nomination in the 2nd Congressional District, passed away after a fall at his home yesterday afternoon in Asheboro.  Crisco was 71 years old. Crisco was married to his wife, Jane, for 49 years. They had three children and six grandchildren.  http://myfox8.com/2014/05/12/keith-crisco/
