Judge Amy Armstrong Reedy spoke to the Cleveland Civitan Club Wednesday.   Reedy explained the structure of the judicial system in Tennessee and how the various types of judges fit into this system.  As a criminal judge, Reedy can only work on criminal cases and is not allowed to rule on civil on domestic cases.  Judge Reedy also discussed how the vast majority of criminal cases are related to problems with drug addiction. From left are Civitan Pam Edgemon and Reedy.
 Civitan welcomed the Rev. Russ Coffey, founder of the Anchor Point Foundation, as the guest speaker at the July 23 meeting.  At one time, Coffey was an international minister of the Gospel. After a career-ending accident, he found himself back in Cleveland and was informed of a "spiritual son" who had been led down a path of self-destruction. This individual had lost his family, his church, his job, everything; and Pastor Coffey explained how his search for him (who he found in an abandoned box car on a train track) led him to an entirely different ministry focus and life's work. Anchor Point now has clients in treatment centers nationwide. Coffey is adamant his work is not faith-based, but it is Christ-based and that makes all of the difference. From left are Civitans Ann Cadle, Pam Rogers and Rebecca Palmer, speaker Coffey and Civitan Lindsay Hathcock.
