One was directing my work on a photo from yesterday and she spotted a nice place to take a nap and to observe and look for prey. Reality she determined would have to bend to accommodate her need for creature comforts and thus she directed that the image would be rotated 90 degrees in order to provide her with a comfortable perch from which to observe the world … and I agree with her … makes sense. Please note the many faces in the column … some inverted and some not. Their facial expressions are forever etched in stone, so to speak, but we still have a choice and a smile would be a better way to remain frozen for eternity methinks … choose wisely.

$30,000 Recovered for Elderly Victim of Fraud

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

logo_yavapaicountyattorneyPrescott AZ (August 9, 2017) – Using Arizona’s civil asset forfeiture laws, the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office and Yavapai County Attorney’s Office quickly seized $30,000 from a fraud scheme and returned it through court action to an elderly victim.

The fraud began when a person going by the name of “Jonh Caldwell” contacted a Prescott widow, age 89, through e-mail and social media. “Jonh” claimed to be an American military general who needed money to leave the war zone in Syria and/or Iran. Over a period of time, the widow was misled into believing she was assisting “Jonh” to escape the war and return to the United States. “Jonh” expressed his concerns about the war escalating, professed his love to the widow, and convinced her that she was the only one who could help him. He also promised to repay the funds to her when they could be together. “Jonh Caldwell” and another person by the name of “Mills,” who claimed to be associated with the United Nations, defrauded the widow of over $60,000 in several transactions.

photo_martaadelsmanI’m more distracted these days by potty functions and toys than I have been since my sons were babies. No, it’s not because of grandchildren.  We have a new puppy!   

I nearly fainted when my husband, Steve – not always the biggest fan of having pets – showed me a puppy photo posted by friends who own the parent dogs.  They wanted to find a home for this little guy, so we paid a visit and … well, you know how it goes. We named him Hero. Read More→
