NEWS &BUSINESS BRIEFS n Do you have an unclaimed check? The Orange County Clerk’s Office may have money for you in the form of a check. Checks listed at www. myorangeclerk.com are those that were mailed, but never cashed; perhaps because the intended recipient moved away and did not leave a forwarding address or put the check away and forgot about it. The list of more than 5,000 checks includes uncashed jury checks, vendor payments, refunds and cash bonds from as low as 11 cents to more than $7,000. Whether you are an individual, business or an organization, make sure to view the unclaimed checks list. If you see your name on the list, you have until Sept. 1, 2018, to claim the money, or it will be forfeited and deposited into the clerk’s Fine and Forfeiture Fund.

This designation, led by the Veterans Advisory Council, furthers Orlando’s effort to be the most veteran-friendly community in the country. The Purple Heart is the nation’s oldest military medal, awarded to members of the armed forces wounded in combat. By becoming a Purple Heart City, Orlando is able to show support for Purple Heart veterans, commemorate their sacrifices and welcome them warmly to the Orlando community. As part of this initiative, the city will install Purple Heart City signs on several roadways, including Corrine Drive near the Veterans Memorial Park, and Lee Vista Boulevard and State Road 417, near the Orlando VA Medical Center.
