Nowak will fillout the remainder of a termthat lasts until Dec. 31 of this year.Judge Batzer told thefriends, family and co-workers of Nowak whogathered for the swearingin ceremony that usually his court deals in mattersthat are much differentthan a happy occasion of this nature.“I think you know thisis not a place where a lotof happy things occur, buttoday is an exception,”Batzer said. “As you know,longtime county clerk Marilyn Kliber retired atthe end of 2011. She retiredafter many years of topnotch service to the peopleof the county and we wishher well.“However, the businessof the county goes on andwe have a vacancy in thecounty clerk’s office andunder the Constitution of the State of Michigan, thatposition has to be filled by the circuit court.”Batzer said that he feltNowak was a longtimeemployee who was a perfectchoice to maintain the highstandards Kliber had set forthat office.“It is a pleasure for thecourt to make the appoint-ment, and I will now signthe order and have her takethe oath of office,” saidBatzer.Nowak said that sheis thrilled at the opportu-nity to serve the people of Manistee County. She saidher association with thecommunity has been a life-long one.“I was born and raisedin Manistee County,” saidNowak. “I have an asso-ciate’s degree from WestShore Community Collegeand a bachelor’s in businessadministration from FerrisState University in 2010. I worked for 13 years in theclerk’s office and was Mrs.Kliber’s chief deputy clerk.“I am excited to takethis next step in my career with this opportunity, andhopefully I will continuethe great office that Marilynhas created here. It is a busy place where we do somany things, and right now  we are in full blown elec-tion mode in our office.”Nowak said that they are moving right ahead inthat area so the county will be prepared for everything without missing a beat.“Ballots have beenproofed and recently ordered with theRepublican presidentialprimary election the endof February,” said Nowak.“The ballots are beingshipped and townshipclerks are getting their pre-cinct inspectors together, sothat is exciting. We will alsohave an August Primary as we all know, 2012 is ourelection year, and we willhave the General Electionin November.“That will keep usreally busy and there arethe other duties we haveas we are the clerk of thecircuit court for ManisteeCounty and that is a bigpart of our job. We alsomaintain all vital recordsfor Manistee County, birth,death, marriages, all of thecourt filings along with thefines that people pay fromcourts, concealed weap-ons.”Nowak said she plans tofile her name as a candidatefor the clerk’s position forthe August primary and if she wins at that level willmove on to the NovemberGeneral Election. She alsoinvites people who needservices from the clerk’soffice to stop in.“I am ready to take thatnext step,” said Nowak. “If anyone ever has any issuesfor our office, all they haveto do is call and we willtake care of it for them.”

If you’re feeling stressedout by life’s daily doseof details, it’s time to getorganized. Whether it’s your sched-le, your house, or yourhotos in a jumble, there’so time like the New Yearo resolve to organize yourife. And there are many ew, technological tools outhere to help.
Organize yourschedule
 When it comes to yourschedule, are you still stuck on sticky notes? It’s time togo digital so you can access your information whenand where you need it. A mobile and online calendarand organizer can help youstay on top of your sched-ule by consolidating yourfamily members’ calendarsand lists all in one place.Consider a servicethat is available as an appon your mobile phone ortablet (as well as online)and synchronizes with your Outlook calendar. Forexample, Cozi (www.cozi.com), an online and mobilecalendar and organizer forfamilies, sends users emailand text reminders aboutupcoming events and tasks,and helps manage mealplanning and shoppinglists. With reminders com-ing directly to your phoneabout what to pick up fordinner or what time theschool play begins, you won’t miss a beat.
Simplifyerrands
If after a full seasonof holiday activities youcould use an extra handgetting your home, pantry and family back in order,consider using serviceslike Alice.com, an onlinemarketplace for householdessentials.It’s all about simplify-ing errands and restock-ing your shelves with theessentials you need, saving you time, money and tripsto the store.“For the primary shop-per of the family, gettingstocked up doesn’t haveto mean running fromstore to store,” says Mark McGuire, President andCo-Founder of Alice.com.“There are faster, morecost-efficient ways to shopfor everyday items, and with one less errand torun, shoppers will havemore free time to enjoy forthemselves or with theirfamilies.”Such services help bud-get-conscious shoppers with competitive pricing,free delivery, instant cou-pons and simple manage-ment of household goods. Alice.com, for example,even has a free iPhone appas well, so you can stay organized on the go.
Organize yourmemories
If you love your cameraor smartphone, you prob-ably already have a tonof photos and videos thatneed to be organized. Youdon’t have to do the hard work if you choose a host-ing site to protect, backupand share your photos. Besure to pick one that hasunlimited upload capabilitand privacy customizationoptions. Whether you’re sharingphotos with Grandma, orrunning a business, a sitelike SmugMug (www.smug-mug.com) lets you set thelook of your site or gallery.There’s no need to feelharried by the myriaddetails of managing yourhousehold. With a little work and the right tools, you can stay on top of yourtasks in the new year.

uncovered several consistent behav-iors and attitudes that are strongly associated with feeling in controlof one’s life -- all of which revolvearound not letting money or your jobdefine who you are.Upbeat Americans are driven by a mindset that they can always findways to solve problems. And they seem to have struck the right balancebetween finding time for fun thingsthey enjoy and taking the necessary steps to secure their futures.“Americans who feel in controlof their destinies share a commonmindset focused on positive, con-structive behaviors every day,” saidMark Konen, president of Insuranceand Retirement Solutions for LincolnFinancial Group.
Simple steps tooptimism
The good news is there are certainbehaviors you can adopt to positively impact your life. Consider these topfive behaviors of Americans who feelin control of their lives:
n
They value and cultivate per-sonal relationships.
n
They volunteer in their commu-nities and give to charity.
n
They take quiet time to be aloneand think.
n
They exercise and spend timeon hobbies.
n
They adhere to budgets andsave for retirement.Not surprisingly, those who saidthey felt in control have taken con-crete steps to build financial secu-rity, such as establishing retirementaccounts and owning other financialproducts, including life insurance.They are also more likely to stay  within their budgets and save money from every paycheck, regardless of amount.
It’s not about money
One of the secrets of optimistic Americans, according to the research,is they are not driven by the desire to be wealthy.Instead, Americans “in charge”consider financial freedom -- havingenough money to do what they want -- to be four to five times more impor-tant than being wealthy.“The combination of traits thatapply to ‘take charge’ Americansshows these people strike the right balance,” says Konen. “They valuealone time, but also invest in rela-tionships with friends and family.They enjoy leisure time but maketime to sit down with their paperwork and adhere to budgets.”More details from the new survey can be found at LincolnFinancial.com/surveys. According to the new research,the key to optimism is adopting amindset centered on the fact that it’ssquarely within your power to control your destiny. While you must take steps to builda secure future, it’s equally importantto take time to enjoy life.
