| | This Month's Brain Teaser!
A couple had two little boys, ages 8 and 10, who were excessively mischievous.
The two were always getting into trouble and their parents could be assured that if any mischief occurred in their town their two young sons were in some way involved. The parents were at their wits end as to what to do about their sons' behavior.
The mother had heard that a clergyman in town had been successful in disciplining children in the past, so she asked her husband if he thought they should send the boys to speak with the clergyman.
The husband said, "We might as well. We need to do something before I really lose my temper!"
The clergyman agreed to speak with the boys, but asked to see them individually.
The 8 year old went to meet with him first. The clergyman sat the boy down and asked him sternly, "Where is God?"
The boy made no response, so the clergyman repeated the question in an even sterner tone, "Where is God?"
Again the boy made no attempt to answer, so the clergyman raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy's face, "WHERE IS GOD?"
The questioning was successful, and the boys never did cause any more mischief.
How did it work?

| | Time to Observe School Zones!
School zones are supposed to keep kids safe as they arrive at and leave school, but the zones sometimes pose a risk for pedestrians and motorists alike.
Each school year, nearly 54 million school-age children walk or bike to school or otherwise pass through the school zone after exiting a caregiver's car or the school bus. In those busy zones, they can be at risk of injury or death. Meanwhile, motorists (even those who are parents or caregivers hauling their precious cargo) may need a refresher class on the rules of the road in school zones, experts say.
"There's a lot of activity that happens between arrival time and dismissal time that can be distracting, and that's the piece that can make it risky for young pedestrians," says Nancy Pullen-Seufert, associate director of the National Center for Safe Routes to School.
Just How Dangerous Are School Zones? [FULL STORY]
Take Chicago as an example: From 2007 to 2011 nearly 1,700 children and youths ages 5-18 were struck by vehicles within about a block of a school, according to a recent analysis by the Chicago Tribune of school zone safety in the city. That's an average of about 10 percent of all pedestrians hit by vehicles in Chicago over that time period. Many drivers didn't stop or slow down in or near these school zones, even when a crossing guard was present.

| | Can I Repair My Flood Damaged Vehicle?
Ask anyone about “car flood damage repair,” and most will say it’s impossible.
Even car insurance companies, known to avoid spending money, tend to simply write off a flood-damaged car. Since cars are complex machines and flood water is harmful to all modern cars’ systems, the answer is usually not a simple one. Hydro-locked engines, short-circuiting electronics and water-logged transmissions are just a few potential results of water damage, not to mention mold, mildew and rust. Flood damage repair can fall into two categories, which can best be expressed as “economical” and “uneconomical.”
Uneconomical Car Flood Damage Repair
When cars get hit by a storm surge or river flooding, they may sit for days or weeks while water saturates everything. This can severely compromise your vehicle’s interior, electronics and powertrain. Salt water flooding, even light flooding, does the worst damage to cars. In fact, some experts consider a salt water flooded modern car to be unfixable at any level. Unless you are prepared to completely rebuild the car, you should write off repairing a salt-water or long-term flooded car. [FULL STORY]

| | Community to Sponsor TVE for Seventh Year
For the seventh consecutive year, Community Toyota*Honda*KIA will be the automotive sponsor for the Trinity Valley Exposition on October 13 - 21 at the TVE Fairgrounds in Liberty, TX.
For the past 107 years TVE has stood strong as one of the oldest and largest events of its kind. Over those years the organization has worked to strengthen its core values of "Leading the way by furthering the education of the youth of Liberty and Chambers Counties". In the past 36 months the TVE has delivered an excess of $1.2 million dollars to the youth of these great counties. This milestone far exceeds any previous three year span by over 20%. It is because of the generous support of the community as well as its committed group of volunteers and sponsors that make this all possible. During this three year period, the TVE has also been able to make substantial capital improvements to the existing facility. The TVE and its leadership are very excited about these milestones and is looking forward to another 100 year of growth and excitement. In 2017 the TVE will award $26,500.00 to students from Liberty and Chambers counties that are college bound.
The event includes a livestock show and auction, carnival, a nightly PRCA Rodeo, and live entertainment. For complete information, go to www.tvefair.com. [FULL STORY]
