Thanksgiving, a time of giving for KC Clerk’s office
Special to The Monitor
KAUFMAN–November brings us to the season of Thanksgiving.
It is a time where many of us gather with family and friends to enjoy good food, good company, and giving thanks for both.
However, the ladies in the County Clerk’s Office would like to reinvent the holiday as one that celebrates our ability to give.
In keeping with this spirit, the County Clerk’s Office has teamed with the Kaufman County Children’s Shelter, Child Advocacy Center, Healing Hearts Ministry and Genesis Center and agreed to help with a Courthouse/Community Donation Drive.
Kaufman County Clerk Laura Hughes is amazed at the simple things being asked for. “The donation requests do not include toys or clothes, but rather basic staple items, such as paper products, hygiene items, cleaning supplies, office supplies and gift cards.”
To encourage awareness and participation, the County Clerk’s office created a ‘Tree of Giving’ and has challenged county employees to help fill the needs of these agencies.
“With the challenges of this economy, giving this year is more important than ever. I am proud of the county employees, community members and the County Clerk’s Office in supporting these organizations during this special season”, Judge Erleigh Norville Wiley said.
The Tree of Giving, located in the courthouse, has brightly colored leaves on it that list the donation requests and everyone is encouraged to “pick off a leaf and drop off their donation!”
For easy access, donation boxes and request lists have been placed throughout the county.
Some of the locations include the courthouse, the courthouse annex, the sheriff’s department and the sub-courthouses.
The public is also invited to take part in giving during this season!
For more information, please call the County Clerk’s Office at (972) 932-4331 ext. 1104.

 

‘Clog-Free’ plumbing for homeowners
Special to The Monitor
CEDAR CREEK LAKE AREA–Residents of Cedar Creek Lake are primed to benefit from a unique new program that will guarantee “clog-free” drains and pipes throughout their homes.
The Drain Maid system, featuring Bio Smart, is a natural drain and septic system treatment that guarantees that homeowners who take advantage of it will enjoy the convenience and peace of mind of living with clog-free drains all year round.
To help homeowners cope with this problem, A+ Professor of Plumbing is introducing the Drain Maid system, featuring Bio Smart, which is designed not only to remedy the current clogging problem experienced by a homeowner, but also provide a means to keep the clog from re-occurring.
“Clogged drains are the number one reason homeowners call their plumber,” Brent McDonald said..
“We at A+ Professor of Plumbing want to bring homeowners a system that will take care of that unclogging and make sure the customer’s problem doesn’t come back,” he added.
The key to the Drain Maid system is BioSmart™, a patented natural solution that specializes in keeping drains and pipes open and working.
BioSmart is formulated in partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. It uses naturally occurring bacteria that thrive on grease, oil, and organics that are found in every home’s drains.
Many supermarket chemical solutions actually destroy the natural population of friendly bacteria in a home’s drains and pipes.
“What our customers really love about BioSmart™ is how it eats away the cause of those nasty odors that come from clogged drains,” McDonald said.
“And the fact that we guarantee no clogs with our ‘No Clog Guarantee’, you can’t lose by calling A+ Professor of Plumbing,” he added.
McDonald is one of just a select few plumbing professionals who offer the Drain Maid system, featuring Bio Smart.
They have access to this program as part of Plumbers’ Success International, a members-only organization that is dedicated to the success of the professional plumber.
It offers proven business management processes, patented marketing programs, and world-class training to help plumbing professionals provide outstanding customer service and improve the lives of homeowners everywhere.

Come Adopt Us At
The Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake
The domino effect is a chain reaction that occurs when a small change causes a similar change nearby, which then will cause another similar change, and so on. My name is Domino, and I got my name not only because I’m black and white like a domino tile, but also because my outgoing, cheerful personality causes my doggie roommates to smile. This also causes our human friends to smile, which even causes the kitties in the cat room to smile.
I am an 8-month-old male Pointer/Terrier mix. I love children, other dogs, and even get along great with kitties. I’ve had all my shots and am ready to be adopted. If you’d like to experience the domino effect, I am sure to put a forever smile on your face when you take me to my forever home.
I currently live with a foster family, so if you would like to meet me, call my friends at the Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake at (903) 432-3422 to make an appointment. You can also email them at dogshsccl@yahoo.com.
