Three-legged deer inspireslocal photographer’s book
For Suzanne Rogers, the road towriting a book started with a three-legged deer almost a decade ago. Asan area photographer, she noticedthe deer in the southwest area aftertaking pictures.“It was a really rough winter,” shesaid. “[The deer] were eating in thebackyard.”Rogers didn’t notice the deer onlyhad three legs until she wentthrough the photographs from hershoot.The following spring, the deershowed up with babies. Rogers thendecided to name the animal“Mama.”With harsh weather, Mama had ahard time providing for her babies.“She was starving. That was whenI decided to put some corn out forher. I knew she would die,” Rogerssaid. “From then on, I was reallywatching for her and photographingher.”Mama would come back aroundto Rogers’ backyard for food.“She became a little familymember,” the photographer said.It was then that Rogers decidedshe should write a book about how[the deer] was courageous andstrong, even though she had adisability.Mama turned out to be a fighter,in light of missing one leg.She would “jump fences and fightother deer off to keep them from herbabies,” Rogers said.This story of adversity in the faceof a disability inspired her to write abook titled “My Mother Can DoAnything.” It’s sold on Amazon as aglossy paperback picture book.The inspirational story has left animpact in others hearts as well, theauthor said.“It hits so many people,” Rogerssaid. “I have so many women whocry when they read it. It feels sogood to have something that strikesa cord.”But Mama hasn’t been seen inawhile, she said.“She either left the area or shepassed,” Rogers said. “She wasreally well known in this areabehind Homestead.”The memory of Mama and herstruggles remains close to Rogers,who is planning to expand the storyof the first book into a generationaltrilogy series.“There are a lot of people whocheered for this deer,” she said.

The Botanical Conser-vatory’s Carman Younglikes a good scavengerhunt. As event coordi-nator, her research skillswere recently put to thetest when she worked onthe “1960s Album Art-Behind the Covers”exhibit, which runs untilAug. 29.Finding fun facts aboutalbum art wasn’t all playand games, but becauseYoung has a big interestin music, this task wasmade a little easier.“I like music a lot,” shesaid. “I enjoy being ableto book the summerconcert series. I go to alot of concerts. Some of these albums, I borrowedfrom my hippie neighborswhen I was younger.”A few of the albumsthat are part of the exhibi-tion include: Crosby,Stills and Nash, theBeatles and the Doors.One of the secretsbehind the Beatles’“Abbey Road” album isabout how long it took totake the classical shot of the four band memberswalking across the street.“Those guys, they had10 minutes to do a photoshoot, so they had apolice officer out blockingtraffic,” Young said.She says this equaledout to “six shots in 10minutes,” and “the fifthshot was the one theyended up using.”The Volkswagen Beetlethat is on the album coverwas sold for $23,000 andis now on display inGermany, she said.Young has found aninteresting story for all of the albums that are ondisplay.She likes “just beingable to go and research anew story [and] learnsomething new that noteverybody knows.”While the Album Artscene isn’t directly relatedto the Botanical’s“Summer of Love”exhibit, Young said bothdisplays will bring back the memories.“For the folks that areof that age, it’s going tobring back a lot of memo-ries,” Young said, jokingthat she didn’t quite growup during that decade.She said the display,especially of the Volk-swagen bus, will “spark alot of memories, andbring in a lot of nostalgiaof the time and the placeof what has been goingon.”The Summer of Loveexhibit will also feature adisplay of ’60s toys,including favorites likeSilly Putty, Slinkies andMr. Potato Head.For more details, visitwww.botanicalconservatory.org.

Key tag program teachescommunity awareness andlending a hand
For the past five months, Realtor JuliaFiechter has been incredibly busy. Shelaunched JFLendingahand.com, anonprofit, on March 15 of this year. Theprogram works by using a key tag, muchlike the ones that are used for discounts atconvenience stores, at select retailers.When someone presents the key tag at aparticipating retailer, one or two thingscan happen. The retailer will donate apercentage of the sale, or other service, toa charity. The program has 10 local,partner charities. The business could alsochoose to give the consumer a discount.Bandido’s Restaurant offers a 5 percentdiscount when presented with a JFLendin-gahand key tag.“Every month, [the business] canchange their charitable promotion,”Fiechter said. “You show your tag, they’regoing to take 5 percent off the bill for youand 5 percent goes to Community HarvestFood Bank,” she said, speaking aboutBandido’s.When Fiechter, who works for MikeThomas and Associates, discusses theprogram, she talks about giving back inevery way she can to the community.“I get passionate,” she said. “I start toget emotional. We have a giving commu-nity. Our community gives all the time. Itshows the compassion we have for oneanother.”Fiechter has been volunteering locallyfor more than 20 years with nonprofitorganizations and has thought aboutstarting a program like JFLendingahandfor many years.“I have been thinking about this ideafor a long time. I had no idea how I wasgoing to get this idea off the ground,” shesaid.She soon realized everything she wastalking about with her real estate businesswas something she had brainstormed forthe program.The two ideas meshed together and theplan took off to combine her business,real estate, with her passion, which ishelping people.“I never thought I would be a financialcontributor to the program. I was going todonate 10 percent of my commissions[from home sales]. I thought, why nottake a step up and go ahead and launchmy program at the same time?”Fiechter has never looked back from thedecision to live out her dreams.“We work with local businesses to giveback,” Fiechter said. “It is absolutely freefor our businesses and our charities toparticipate in our program.”But new changes will make their wayinto the nonprofit this summer whenJFLendingahand.com switches gears.The current site will be solely forFiechter’s real estate business. She willdonate 10 percent of her commissionfrom the sale of the homes listed on thesite.The business and charity end of thenonprofit will then move to www.Lend-ingtheHand.net. This site will focus onthe businesses that are giving back in thecommunity, just as the current site doesnow, Fiechter said.“Lending a Hand Year” is an additionalproject she is working to plan at this stageof program development.“The Lending a Hand campaign will goyearlong. Everybody doing just a little bitdoes so much more. Small, little effortsthat culminate in such big things. Wewant to expose all the efforts and people
