I’ve watched both friends and complete strangers question if the hospitals are really overrun with Covid and if such an occurrence is even that big of a deal. I decided to check things out a bit for myself today since I had to drop off an important and time sensitive package for one of the ER docs that was inadvertently shipped to my house. I called the hospital to make sure it wouldn’t burden them to run by real quick. After a 20-minute hold that already proved how busy things are, I was patched through to someone who arranged for me to quickly swing by the ER security desk.

Acts 4:13 is a favorite bible verse of mine because it describes how ordinary people can accomplish the extraordinary. My #Acts4Thirteen project is an attempt to leverage the skills, financial means, and passions that I have been blessed with in an attempt to improve the community around me, one act or good deed at a time.
Acts 4:13 is also part of a larger story about how God used twelve ordinary people to change the world. And so, this project is also about my seeking to become more like a thirteenth disciple.
By documenting some of these pursuits in a photojournalistic style, I hope to inform, entertain, and most importantly, inspire, others.
My first attempt at fly fishing from a standup paddleboard was essentially a mitigated disaster while trying to deal with wind, too much clutter on the boat deck, and fish that were easily spooked. I have since learned to actually catch fish from the inflatable SUP but recently spent a lot of effort trying to streamline everything to become more stealthy for sight fishing. I’m pretty happy with the results, which I have documented in this post.
There are three things I’ll never forget about March 2020. One was my wife, a nurse, explaining to her medically ignorant husband about how a new type of coronavirus was about to change the world. Second, I recall sitting at a restaurant and telling our kids that it might be the last time we go anywhere in public for quite a while – a sort of beta to our upcoming year of social distancing. Lastly, I remember watching “Won’t You Be My Neighbor,” a documentary about Mr. Rogers.
An interview on what I and others can do to help our community during COVID-19, including my pledge to donate 100% of 2020 sales bonuses to organizations and charities assisting with COVID relief.
Findlay Subaru’s latest venture includes working with the Prescott Mountain Biking Alliance (PMBA) to help fund through corporate sponsorship the building of a new trailhead for the Spence Basin trail system.

Help Portrait Prescott is a new local chapter of a national organization that offers to individuals and families who could not otherwise afford it a posed, professional portrait in a studio environment. Each individual is given an 8 x 10 framed portrait; families receive an 11 x 14 frame. All are given digital shots and coupons to make additional low-cost prints.
Scott Bideau, the organizer of Help Portrait Prescott, holds a portrait from a similar event a few years ago of a family who arranged for the portrait to send to their daughter serving in Iraq. The father in the photograph was a community leader who died two years later from lung issues he suffered after volunteering to assist his brother at Ground Zero after the 9/11 attacks.
