We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
As residents of the City of Kingston it is important that our voice be heard when it comes to the issues which we value the most. I am a strong Republican and I was raised to promote the principles and ideals of the Republican Party. Make a New Year's Resolution to yourself and get involved in Making a Difference. If you are not a "Registered Voter", Register Now. Your vote counts and so does your voice. Come out and support the issues that matter in 2010 regardless of your party affiliation.
Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.

I currently host a local TV show "Jacobs Live People for People"on Kingston Public Access Channel 23. My show is on Wednesday evenings from 8:00 PM-8:30 PM. Previously my show aired on Wednesday evenings from 6:30PM-7:00PM. It is an honor and a privilege as a producer, to return my show to the public. I must compliment the KPA Commission for all of their efforts in making this a reality after a year off the air. I look forward to working with them so we can build a successful future together. Also a special thank you to the people behind the scenes who work the equipment at the new studio. Their commitment and dedication is most appreciated.
Each week I will update my BLOG with my guests that were on my show. If you are interested in being a guest on my show, please do not hesitate to contact me at sweetshope@aol.com.
Last evening, December 16, 2009 my guests were the founders of the KINGSTON UPTOWN RESIDENTS' ALLIANCE (KURA), Mr. Jerry Soldner and his wife Doris Soldner. Jerry and his wife Doris moved to Kingston and fell in love with our fine city. Jerry and Doris had a MISSION in making a difference and welcomed all concerned citizens of Kingston who are interested in rebuilding our neighborhoods and improving our community. I have had the opportunity to attend many of their meetings and I must say they have the ability to energize, inspire and motivate membership participation. For more questions or more information regarding KURA please call 888-338-3237 or e-mail info@uptownresidents.org
Also a Special Thank you to Shelly Zimbler (City and County) and Mr. Art Richter (Health Care Matters) for having me on their show over the last two weeks.
I also attended the Ulster County Legislature meeting last evening, prior to my show. There were special accommodations and awards for the legislators that will be leaving this year, hosted by Mr. David Donaldson (Majority Leader). It was a time for joy and tears, as all of them will be leaving their position as an Ulster County Legislator this year. Susan Cummings (24) years, Mr. Frank Dart (18) years, Mr. Glenn Noonan (14) years Mr. Brian Cahill (2) years, Mr. John Decker (2) years and Mr. Gary Bishoff (2+years). I commend them all for their service to Ulster County and the people.
Well off to finish my Holiday Shopping.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.

Everyone feels the peace, and excitement and wonder of the holidays. I would like everyone to sit back and experience the magic of the season and listen to your heart. Ask yourself a very important question, "How can I make a Difference in my Life and My Community"?
Over the last several weeks I have had the privilege, to return to my show "Jacobs Live People for People" to the airways on the Local KPA Channel 23. I would like to send a Special Thank You to all of the wonderful guests I have had on my show over the last several weeks. Mr. Todd Langon, (Producer, Let's Talk and Mr. Michael Gill Producer, What's the Issue) Mrs. Diane Reeder (Queens Galley), Mr. William Forte (Veterans Administration), Mrs. Laura Petit, (District 7 Ulster County Legislator), Mr. Brian Shapiro, (Executive Director of the Ulster County SPCA) and Ms. Gaetana Ciarlante, (Director and Founder of (SOS) Support of Servicemen and Servicewomen.
I have been away for a while on my BLOG, but never taking my eye off the importance of my community and my public service. I lost my father in September and it has been an extremely difficult time for our family. As of the New Year I feel we must all make resolutions and recognize the importance of UNITY. Gaetana Ciarlante spoke about this on my show last evening as it relates to her Mission and Vision for the future, with operation SOS. It is an eye opener to realize the importance and the power of this one little word.
I am saddened and outraged by many postings and comments about people that I admire and respect on area blogs and newspapers. Please listen to your conscience before passing judgement on others. There are so many issues facing our City, County and Nation that have such a high priority and yet many get caught up in attacking each other personally. Are they the LEADERS of tomorrow? I ask you that question?
Words of Wisdom "Live each day as if your life were being judged by that one day."
Wishing everyone a Very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanuka, and a Very Happy and Health New Year.
From the Jacobs Family, Jean, Jared, Jessica, Robin and Daniel
