Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 31, 2007
October 26th 2007 marked the one year anniversary of the release of Bill Stoneking’s book, “The Diary of a Patient Man, A Father’s Struggle” (LuLu Press, Oct. 26, 2006, ISBN: 978-1-4303-0198-1). As the past year has lapsed, exposure to the problems of domestic violence and child abuse that fathers and their children suffer in family court has brought positive response from readers, voters and families affected in Clay and Platte Counties in Missouri that wish to take action as well as significant responses from other jurisdictions across the United States.
In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month and the ongoing problem of child custody interference by mother’s who make unsubstantiated claims of abuse against fathers to interfere with the parent-child relationship, author Bill Stoneking releases a LULU exclusive edition, “The Diary of a Patient Man, A Father’s Struggle F4J

“Deciding what breed to get is as important as deciding whether to get a dog in the first place,” says AKC spokesperson Lisa Peterson. “The first step in being a responsible pet owner is to do some serious and careful research to determine which breed of dog is right for you and your family.”
The Obama family will be adding a dog to their household for the first time, but according to an Associated Press survey Republican Presidential nominee John McCain and his wife already have 24 pets, including four dogs. The “McCain canines” are an English Springer Spaniel named Sam, two Yorkshire Terriers named Lucy and Desi, and a mixed-breed named Coco. Making up the rest of McCain’s menagerie are a cat, two turtles, a ferret, three parakeets and 13 saltwater fish.
As for a breed for the Obamas, the AKC has scoured all of the “canine candidates” to assess each breed’s credentials as potential “first pet.” Choices were narrowed significantly due to their daughters’ allergies. Therefore, AKC experts made the selection from their list of hypoallergenic breeds.
In the true spirit of doggy democracy, the AKC is asking Americans to vote on the breed they think the Obama family should select. The short list of “canine candidates” chosen by the AKC are:
The Bichon Frise (pronounced BEE-shon Free-ZAY) A small yet sturdy dog with a white, loosely curled double coat, Bichons are naturally sociable. They have a self-assured temperament and are likely to get along with just about everyone (including members of Congress, regardless of party affiliation). Their active, alert and curious personalities make them easy to train, and the breed’s history of being a companion to noblemen in the courts of 16th-century France have primed it for a high-profile life in the White House.

Coming in two varieties, hairless and the powderpuff, Cresteds are lively, playful and alert dogs with plenty of energy. While they are exceptionally loving and affectionate with children, they are only appropriate for mature children who can be taught to handle this diminutive breed gently and responsibly.

They excel in obedience training and even as hunting companions. The breed comes in three sizes. While their coat does require frequent grooming, their intelligence and versatility more than make up for the extra care. The Poodle is currently the eighth most popular breed in the U.S., according to AKC registrations statistics (AKC

Its all about the kids. Thats how ProtectCell feels about its Premier sponsorship with CW3 Extreme Soccer Club, a competitive soccer club made up of children from Commerce, Walled Lake, Wolverine Lake, Wixom and surrounding communities. CW3 Extreme Soccer Club is a small part of CW3 Soccer Association and is made up of over 375 players, both girls and boys, from 7 to 18 years of age.
We are proud to be associated with CW3 and proud to see our logo on the front of CW3 team shirts, says Bryan Finnerty, Co-Founder and CEO of ProtectCell. As a parent myself, and a former professional soccer player, I know how important sports can be in a childs life. This program provides all the elements necessary for kids to have fun, learn soccer skills and develop a love of the game. And this happens in an environment that promotes the value of teamwork and fair play.
By providing the Premier Sponsorship, ProtectCell is helping us make playing soccer more affordable for the kids in our community, says George Janovich, Director of Coaching for CW3. As a volunteer-based organization with roughly 30 teams, we appreciate how much this will help in defraying the cost of securing fields, purchasing equipment and supplying uniforms, says Janovich.
In addition to the $ 5,000 monetary donation, ProtectCell has established a special program providing members of CW3 Extreme Soccer Club the opportunity to purchase the companys wireless protection plans at a special discounted rate with a percentage of sales going to support the Extreme Soccer teams.
We describe our company as a move beyond cell phone insurance, explains Finnerty. We offer a suite of integrated products and services designed to enhance, optimize and protect what we call the wireless lifestyle. Our company not only protects the customers mobile device, by providing a device when needed, but also safeguards everything that is in the device, such as personal data, contacts and pictures. We look forward to providing these services to the families who are part of CW3.
ProtectCells relationship with CW3 is a natural extension of the companys Mission 3.2.1 program, which provides local and national charitable donations as well as encourages each employee to use 20 hours of work time each year to help a local non-profit, charity or school. A team of employees decides which organizations will be targeted for donations and all employees are encouraged to provide suggestions.
ProtectCell safeguards consumers wireless lifestyles by offering valuable services and protection alternatives compared to limited warranties and standard insurance. Known for its strong alliances with industry-leading partners, ProtectCell continues to evolve in order to meet the growing demands of both consumers and independent wireless dealers.

It is the mission of CW3 to provide facilities and conduct a supervised program that encourages family involvement, and fosters the physical, mental, and emotional growth and development of the youth in the Walled Lake School District, through the sport of soccer at all levels of age and competition.
