Back to the world

After 8 months serving his hometown,
Mike Young returns to his real work

In two weeks Mike Young boards a plane headed for Haiti, where he’ll join a company of Christian engineers on a special design project.

Young is eager to go. The retiree will be getting back to the work he really likes — serving his Lord through volunteer service in Third World communities.

“Come Friday I’m done,” Young said earlier this week in his Crescent City office at City Hall. “I go back to retirement, go back to doing what I like. Not that I didn’t like this, but of the two, I prefer that.”

Young’s retirement took a detour nine months ago. He was just coming back from a project in Guatemala when he got asked to help another community in need, his own.

Then-City Manager Eli Naffah had left his position, and it would take months to find a replacement. The city turned to Young for help, asking him to be the interim manager.

The entire student body of St. Joseph Catholic School performed patriotic readings and songs for the residents of the Addie Meedom House during Catholic Schools Week last week.

Residents enjoyed the performance and had a chance to interact with the students when they presented each one of the residents with hand-crafted thank-you cards.

The principal of the school, Mrs. Foht, stressed that this was part of the outreach program from the students to the community.

The Addie Meedom House is a residential community located on Parkway Drive in Crescent City.

Organic entrepreneurs

Despite all the bad news, the economy has had a positive impact on some local entrepreneurs. Ocean Air Farms in Fort Dick is expanding this year, instead of cutting back as many have had to do. The reason being that the price of food has risen to where the local farmers can sell their organic goods for a more competitive price.
