Police ticketing unlocked and running vehicles in Fort St. John

first_imgIt states that, “a driver must not permit a motor vehicle to stand unattended or parked unless the driver has locked it or made it secure in a manner that prevents its unauthorized use.” As the start of their Auto Theft Prevention Campaign, police started leaving notices on the windshields of running vehicles left unlocked, as well as those with valuables left in plain sight, in November. “We are very pleased with how the message was received by motorists,” says Corporal Jodi Shelkie. “Drivers realize that by locking their vehicle every time they get out of it and taking the extra time to lock valuables out of sight pays off. No one wants to have their vehicle stolen or to have it broken into.” – Advertisement -Anyone who still hasn’t gotten the message will certainly learn a lesson this month as RCMP kicks its campaign into full gear.last_img read more

Pharis teaches her students to reach down into their own creative depths, Principal Paul Priesz said. “She’s a wonderful teacher, patient … and a great artist herself,” he said. “She’s passionate about what she does and she brings that out in kids.” Pharis, greeted by colleagues and friends with a standing ovation, said she has learned to share with students her own successes and rejections in hopes of teaching lessons beyond art. “For me, the joy of teaching is to watch children learn to problem-solve,” Pharis said. “That carries into other parts of life.” VALENCIA – Cindy Pharis has turned her passion for art into life lessons for her high school students, a winning strategy that has made her No. 1 in the state. On Thursday, Pharis was honored as the Wal-Mart & Sam’s Club Teacher of the Year for California and will be considered this month for the top national honor. “She’s awesome. She has so much passion,” said Valencia High senior Amber Gaines, 17, as she helped prepare for a surprise luncheon in Pharis’ honor. Pharis was among 197 nominees for the award – one that came with a $10,000 check for her school. And she gets results. “She taught me how to be creative, to incorporate styles into projects,” Gaines said. “You go from making these itty-bitty ugly pots to making something your mom will put on the dining room table.” pat.aidem@dailynews.com 661-257-5251160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Banking Fees Add Up

first_imgLately there’s a lot in the news about checking accounts and debit card fees. So, I thought this would be a good time to take a look at checking account features.A recent survey by The New York Times found that the average bounced check fee is now $30.83, which is a record. In addition, many banks are abandoning their free checking account option, but may offer accounts that allow customers to avoid fees by maintaining a certain balance or by electing for direct deposit. When shopping for a checking account, watch for account features that should raise “red flags,” such as the inability to link the account with a savings account or overdraft fees on debit card transactions. To help service members avoid excessive fees, encourage clients to ask about the specific features of an account before moving their business to a new bank. The Center for Responsible Lending offers banking and lending resources.However, this guide doesn’t address the recent trend in debit card usage fees. What are you hearing about debit card fees? Bank of America has taken a lot of flack for their $5 debit card fees, but many other banks have already instituted fees or are considering implementing fees in the future.Military-affiliated credit unions often charge fewer fees than standard banks.Fortunately, service members and other consumers have other options. Opening an account with a credit union and smaller community bank is often the first step toward avoiding or reducing banking fees. Regardless of the advantage of avoiding fees, research has shown consumers are often hesitant to change banks because they have become accustomed to how a bank operates, even if they don’t care for the fees associated with services. As more users move to online banking, the thought of switching over all their online accounts may seem like more trouble than it’s worth. However, a closer look at how quickly these fees add up might make it worth the annoyance; like the 3,200 people who decided to become new customers at Navy Federal Credit Union. Earlier this month, the Navy Federal Credit Union reported 3,200 new accounts opened in just one weekend. Many new customers had left behind banks that now charging debit card fees.Are your clients paying these fees or changing financial institutions to avoid fees?Beyond debit card fees, what are the features we need to look for when shopping for a transaction account?What are the features likely to get an account holder into trouble?last_img read more
