Smartphone App TrickorTracker Removes Parents' Worries-Kids Can More Safely Enjoy Halloween

Iconosys unveils a new Smartphone app that enables responsible parents to know the exact whereabouts of their trick-or-treating kids without requiring them to follow alongside in the family car (risking the lives of others that may stray into their paths, as they are distracted by the task of diligently watching their children from the car window). 

Iconosys, Inc., has created TrickorTrackerso that parents can safely monitor their kids via their Smartphone, while their children are out and about gathering treats.  TrickorTracker is free of charge for Halloween (it does expire afterwards), or can be purchased for $9.99 thereafter for full lifetime coverage of family members.

Sporting a new name and the permanent addition of a women’s tennis tournament, The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation announces the 11th Annual 65 Roses Golf & Tennis Classic will be Saturday, November 13, at Jacksonville Golf & Country Club.

Proceeds from The 65 Roses Golf & Tennis Classic will benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. 65 Roses is what some children with cystic fibrosis call their disease because the words are much easier for them to pronounce. For more than 40 years, 65 Roses has been used by children of all ages to describe their disease. The rose, appropriately the ancient symbol of love, has become a symbol of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

The tennis portion of the 65 Roses Golf & Tennis Classic will kick off the day at 9 a.m. to noon at the Jacksonville Golf and Country Club and will consist of women’s doubles matches.
