rebel Financial live stream

February 21, 2017
rebel Financial recently invited me to talk about safety on their Friday live stream with Phil Ratcliff.  You can view it on U-tube, Facebook, etc.  My Facebook page is under New Age Crimestoppers.  I just want to thank rebel for giving me the opportunity to spread the word about personal safety and defense.
 

Happy Valentine's Day

February 15, 2017
Yesterday was that special day to show your loved one how much you care about him or her or your children, family and friends.  How many of you rushed out to buy some candy or flowers for that special occasion?  Did you ever think that a personal safety product might really show them how much you care?  Personal awareness and preparedness are definitely things to help keep our loved ones safe!  A friend of mine jokingly said "Nothing says love like a stun gun!"  And then bought one for his wi...

Tired of the Cold and Snow?

March 1, 2015
Who would ever believe the crazy winter that we have had throughout the entire United States.  Many of us have almost hibernated this winter and can't hardly wait for the snow to thaw.  As that happens, we will be walking more and just getting out to enjoy the outdoors again.  When we start getting out more, I cannot express enough how we have to put our awareness skills back to work for us.  Don't forget, that awareness and preparedness, are the key to enjoying the upcoming spring that we ha...

Walkers and Bikers Stay Safe!

June 5, 2014
Wow, what a winter!  Now that summer has finally arrived, we start to spend more time out and about.  That is the time that we need to be more aware of our surroundings!  I see many walkers or bikers going along with ear pieces and music blaring, texting on their phones, and having no idea what is going on around them.  That is just inviting trouble.  Please, if you walk or bike on a regular schedule, change it up as far as your time and your route, so you won't be so predictable.  Also, carr...

Our Cause Made the News

March 24, 2014
Sometimes I wonder if people are really listening to what I have to say about your personal safety and then I get a phone call from NBC 4 News and they want to tell our story to help others to be safe.  They came out to a Senior Center to interview us and show our program and then broadcast it on the six o'clock news.  I am attaching the link to the news video, so you can get a glimpse of what we do.

Happy and Safe New Year!

January 23, 2014
I am a little late in wishing you all a Happy New Year, but I finally did get around to it!  The Safe New Year is my wish because it seems to be more unsafe every year!  We have to be more aware and prepared than ever!  Isn't it sad that people are afraid to go to the Winter Olympics because of the threat of terrorism!  Some people in this country are afraid to go out because of the increase in crime everywhere.  Isn't that the same difference?  We all deserve to live our lives in the most no...

A Split Second

November 3, 2013
Life can change in a split second!  I found that out on June 8th of this year.  My husband had a major stroke and I was fortunate enough to call 911 immediately and he was taken to Grant Hospital and then Life Flighted to Riverside Hospital for a procedure to retrieve the life threatening blood clot!  He is a miracle because he is alive and walking and talking but experiencing some memory issues. I have been running a little behind on some things, but things are beginning to smooth out somewh...

A Safe Send-off to School!

August 23, 2013
Hard to believe that Summer is over and fall, school, and football are ready to begin!  Seems like Summer gets shorter every year.  This year my granddaughter is attending her first year of College away from home.  It is exciting and scarey for her at the same time!  We had a send-off cookout at her house last weekend and we took her some protection devises for when she is on her own.  We had a family discussion about safety issues and I would hope all families would have this discussion with...

K-9 Fundraiser

July 21, 2013
On Saturday we hosted a Madison Township Fundraiser for the K-9 Unit.  The FOE 3261 was gracious to donate the hall for the event and it was and exciting day!  We had many donations, great Vendors, prize drawings, a D.J with Karaoke and best of all, an informative demonstration by the K-9 Unit!  Many people do not realize the importance of a K-9 in fighting Crime!  Also, many K-0 Units are not funded and they have to earn money through events and donations.  We were happy to help and hope to ...

Life is good!

July 2, 2013
Today I would like to talk about how precious every minute of our life is.  On June 8th my husband and I were having dinner and the next minute he was being life-flighted to the hospital with a life threatening stroke.  We are so thankful for the Doctors who worked so quickley to save him and the continued care he received at the hospital and in rehab.  He is now home and we still have some work to do on his memory and certain skills, but he is in fact considered a miracle!  He can walk and t...
