QUESTION:  How do other counties handle Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) processes? For example, what is your procedure when the Indian Tribe wants to be involved with non-juvenile/family law adoptions and/or if the case gets transferred to the tribes jurisdiction? Any help would be appreciated!

Post-it® Notes? Quick Notes?

Do you remember when Post-it® Notes were the best thing since sliced bread?
I do, but it seems they have gotten an upgrade. Instead of all those notes stuck around your monitor cluttering your desk, why not keep electronic sticky notes right on the screen or in an electronic notebook?

Here are two options:

  1. Use Microsoft Sticky Notes® by using the keyboard keystroke
    Ctrl + Windows key (also known as Winkey) + N
  2. Use Quick Notes for OneNote® to automatically insert a quick note into your note book.
    Windows key (Winkey) + N

The image below is a sticky note with list of the documents I am waiting for feedback on. Because the list is in a prominent place, I won’t forget to follow up!

The Microsoft universal shortcuts work on Sticky notes® and Quick notes® The size and color of the Sticky Notes are customizable.

Give it a try and let me know how it works.
