ITEX RESOLVES ISSUES WITH EAST COUNTY MAGAZINE, HELPS HURRICANE SANDY RELIEF EFFORTS

By Miriam Raftery

November 21, 2012 (San Diego’s East County) – I am pleased to report that ITEX has taken steps to resolve the conflicts that we previously reported regarding our account.

In an email received today, the company has agreed to refund  payments, cease billing for time after our cancellation notice, and provide a generous one-year extension for us to use our remaining credits.  ECM has agreed to donate a portion of those credits to benefit victims of Hurricane Sandy.  We look forward to working with ITEX to find good uses for our remaining credits that will support our own nonprofit media efforts on behalf of our readers.

We applaud ITEX for stepping forward to do the right thing--and we are thankful for their efforts on this Thanksgiving Day.

BOOK REVIEW: LIVING RESOURCEFULLY, YET VERY WELL

 

Living Resourcefully, Yet Very Well, by Susan A. Mahalick (Amazon.com, 2012).
 
Book Review by Dennis Moore
 
July 15, 2012 (San Diego)--Susan Mahalick, an expatriate who grew up in New Jersey and later lived in Iowa before moving to Baja California,  has written a thoughtful and practical guide to being frugal and resourceful.  Living Resourcefully, Yet Very Well is a book based on her own personal learning and life experiences, starting when she was a little girl. She indicates in this well written and thought provoking book that  she learned to save from a very young age and still remember her “little bank book.”
