    It’s Easter and Passover time. Let’s hope we all, in this free country, worship at our church or synagogue of our choice.

  • Mother proud of daughter’s induction into honor society at CFCC

    My daughter, Laurie Kedenburg, was inducted into the Kappa Nu Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa International Society at CFCC March 29. It was held at the Klein Conference Center at CFCC.

    This is a great honor for anyone. It’s more so, though, for my daughter who is in her late 40s and never attended college before. She is hearing impaired but has not let it stop her in any way.

  • Neighbors turn out to support scholarship fundraiser

    Spruce Creek Preserve neighbors – some 250 of them – came together recently to celebrate the spirit of the community and to raise funds for the Frank Pisillo Scholarship Fund. 

    Frank, the beloved chorus director for the community who died in September 2005, lives on in the strength of the Chorus now under the direction of Ellen McClure. 

    The Scholarship Committee has awarded six students funds for the continuation of their musical careers over the last four years and will do so again this year. 

  • Speaker will offer hints for hurricane safety

    Don’t forget to attend the Oak Run Homeowners Association’s general meeting Wednesday, April 8 at 9 a.m. in the Orchid Club. Captain Chip Wildy of the Marion County Sheriff’s Office will speak on “Hurricane Preparedness.”

    Sometimes speakers come to Oak Run and the attendance is somewhat embarrassing. We wouldn’t like it said that Oak Runners aren’t concerned about protecting ourselves in this upcoming hurricane season.

  • Better watch out for unsolicited contacts

    Stimulus scams are alive and flourishing. These people have all kinds of ways to increase their cash flow by taking your money. There are sites claiming to help people qualify for the money or grants you can apply for.

    Another way they’re trying to fill their pockets is by trying to get people to buy into a financial service they probably don’t need. They phone or e-mail unsuspecting people asking for information regarding your bank account, credit cards, or other personal information.
