Managing Your Money
ou may have heard that "A
fool and his money are soon
parted." But these days, one
does not have to be foolish to come to a
parting of the ways with one's cash. Here
are some of the things I've heard.
Have you ever
been offered a
penny for your

If you are wait-

song suggests, for
heaven," I urge you
to find a differ-

Kadima Well Rated
Kadima, a Southfield-based mental
health service agency, has earned a three-
year CARP accreditation through June
2012 for its Out-Patient Mental Health
program that serves adults with serious
and chronic mental illness.
The accreditation is the second con-
secutive three-veal accreditation that the
international, independent accrediting
body has awarded Kadima.
A CARF accreditation represents sub-
stantial conformance to CARE standards
and that Kadima has "an established pat-
tern of practice excellence." Kadima com-
pleted a rigorous peer review process and
demonstrated to CARF surveyors that its
programs and services are of the highest
quality, measurable and accountable.
Kadima is a nonprofit organization
with 24 residential homes in Oakland
County. It has provided programs and
services to adults with chronic and seri-
ous mental illness for twenty-five years.

More than 100 Palestinian and Israeli
children came together for a soccer camp
aimed at fostering understanding, build-
ing friendships and creating a new gen-
eration of youth advocates for peace.
In its second year, the camp was run
jointly by the Sports Department of
your time. There is enough trouble
with what is already dropping from the
skies. Remember that 'A penny saved is
a penny earned," but since most items
today cost "A pretty penny," you have a
long collection time ahead of you. If you
stop to put your two cents in, you may
risk having your say rejected as well as
losing two precious pennies; be more
sparing with your opinions and you are
on your way to savings.
Some of us remember that when times
get tough some folks squeeze a nickel so
hard the buffalo hollers. Of course, today
that is harder to do since the design on
the nickel is changed.
The great Depression spawned the
question, "Buddy, can you spare a dime?"
Now, with many items a dime a dozen in
quality (in reality costing much, much
more), we find ourselves able to stop on a
dime if we see a true bargain.
There are few expressions using the
half dollar — who has such wealth?
There is, however, a rapper named 50
Cent. Enough said.
Were you ever so sure about something
that you would bet your bottom dollar?
Once we get to this denomination, lots of
expressions are based on the sure thing,
maybe because that is a lot of cash. (You
can tell I am from a different era!) The
certainty seemed so great that you bet
on it "dollars to doughnuts." Be careful,
especially when betting, that you are not
caught a "day late and a dollar short."
I am now working on my second
million; I gave up on the first since it
was too hard to come by. I do not look
forward to having money to burn even
though money talks and I am an avid
