This is a true keep-sake for anyone from Julian or as a Prescription Drug Abuse: What You Need To Know According to the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, "Abuse of prescription drugs to get high has become increasingly prevalent among teens and adults. Past year abuse of prescription pain killers now ranks second--only behind marijuana--as the Nation's most prevalent illegal drug problem." Prescription painkillers like Vicodin, OxyContin, and Morphine are the most often abused prescription drugs. These drugs, when used as prescribed, provide effective and indispensable medical benefit, but when taken without physician's direction, can be dangerous, addictive and deadly. Extent Of Use • One in five teens nationwide (4.5 million) has abused Rx drugs. • In San Diego County, 13% of 9th graders and 23% of 11th graders are using prescription drugs to get high. • Over a five year period (2002-2007), misuse of OxyContin increased by 30%. • In 2009, 13.4 million young people ages 12-17 said they can illegally obtain prescription drugs in a day or less. • Treatment facilities report that 70% of their cases are prescription drug related. • One in three teens surveyed said there is "nothing wrong" with abusing prescription drugs "every once in a while." • Teens walk across the border daily to sell or trade electronics for Oxycontin. Why Prescription Drugs Are So Appealing To Teens • Society has developed the belief that "pills cure all." • Teens believe that prescription drugs provide a "much safer high" than street drugs, often saying "my parents take them and nothing bad has happened." • 1/3 of teens believe that pain killers are not dangerous or addictive. • Teens are exposed to approximately 1.2 million drug related videos on You Tube per month, 85%. of which promote substance abuse. What Parents Should Look For • Items missing in the house that could be sold--cameras, electronics, etc. • Shelled out pens, matches, lighters, spoons, syringes • Strips of aluminum foil with burn marks • Regularly check your child's bedroom, bathroom, car, backpack and cell phone. • Notice personality changes, mood swings, irritability, excessive energy, sleepiness or avoidance of sleep, forgetfulness, clumsiness, increasingly acting secretive, losing interest in personal appearance and things that used to be important to them, borrowing money or having extra cash, and doing poorly in school. Proper Disposal Of Prescription Drugs • Most teens get prescription drugs from the homes of friends or relatives, and improper disposal also damages the environment. The Julian Sheriff's Department now has a secure collection drop- box inside the sheriff's station where unwanted medications may be turned in anonymously. Medications in containers may be deposited in those containers (all information on containers will be kept confidential and destroyed.) Loose medication can be put into plastic bags available at the collection box and then deposited. (A syringe and needle disposal box is also available outside the sheriff's station.) You Are The Parent--Not Your Child's Friend • Be proactive, confront the issues, and ask the hard questions. Despite what you might think, your teen values your guidance. According to Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America, "parents are the most powerful influence on their kids when it comes to drugs, and, when parents set and enforce rules, teens are less likely to engage in risky behavior." ---Drug Free Julian Working together to build a safe, healthy, drug-free Julian!

The month began with clear lovely days the first few days. Then it turned cloudy,and stormy. A bit of rain on the eighth day with one quarter inch total in my gauge. Very windy and very cold days for next couple of weeks. Rain began on the 20th day and that extreme cold temperature followed. Lots of frost in the early mornings. Then more misting rain on the 28th. We had much fog, strong winds, extreme cold temperatures and rain, but we did have a few clear warm days as well. It was a wonderful month we long will ;emember. 2. On my daily two mile drive into town of Julian not much in the way of flowers blooming anywhere but, oh, the beauty of the brilliant fall colors on many trees surrounded by evergreens. 3. I had lovely flowers still in bloom in my large flower pots especially the marigolds. Guess they are done blooming after the extreme cold temperatures. The first two weeks of the month, I had two separate bouquets of rosebuds from my white rose bush. They were lovely on my dining table. When they opened up, they were actually a lovely pink in color. 4. The day after Thanksgiving as I was driving into town, about five grown turkeys were crossing the highway in front of me. They had escaped our holiday and rm sure they are glad to be alive and well. 5. Town hall was a busy place with craft shows upstairs and downstairs. A lady by the name of Virginia headed up the craft shows downstairs. She uses the name Vee and has labeled her signs "Vee's Arts & Crafts". Lovely as they are, I have nothing to do with arts and crafts. I only deal with people and cats. Many locals were thinking it was my show. 6. The all day free Thanksgiving dinner given by Calvary Chapel of Julian was a wonderful event. I served as a hostess greeting the people. Many tourists came and some make it a point to come by year after year. There was a steady stream of guests all day and all enjoyed the wonderful meal. What a wonderful ministry Calvary Chapel does each year. 7. We seniors at the town hall are so grateful to all who show us so many kindnesses. We enjoyed the box of apples delivered to us by Mr. Barnes. Every day, we receive donuts, cookies, muffins and sometimes pies from JULIAN PIE COMPANY. On Tuesdays, we receive pies from MOM'S PIE SHOP. On Thursdays we receive specialty breads and pastries from Charles of CANDIED APPLE PASTRY and from time to time we receive bread from DUDLEY'S. Our special thanks to each. 8. It has been a very busy month and a lovely one. Now we're looking forward to a new month, end of the year with many activities for the holidays. We're hoping for some ,warmer days ahead to thaw out from the cold of November 2010. 9. We're hoping everyone will have a wonderful holiday season. *** I'm glad I live in Julian *** [ Parents " Guide l Kids Don't Need To Take A Vacation From Learning (NAPSA) - Your child's education doesn't have to take a holiday when school is not in session. There are a number of things parents can do to promote a love of learning year-round. For example: 1. The U.S. Department of Education has come up with a way to make science lessons at home good, clean fun. Children can learn about surface tension and about change just by blowing soap bubbles. Mix some dishwashing liquid with water and pour it into a pan. Let your children blow through a straw while moving it slowly across the surface of the solution. Ask them to notice the size of the bubbles that it makes. Next, have your children gently touch a bubble with a wet finger and then with a dry finger to see what happens. Finally, look closely at the bubbles. Count the many colors and see if they change. 2. Children can explore fascinating mathematical possibilities in the world around them every day. Ask them to look for symmetry in leaves; count the number, sizes and kinds of trees on your street; and look at the various shapes and patterns of flowers. 3. When. school is out, the library is in. Visit the library with your youngsters and help them find books to pique their interest. 4. According to a recent Kaiser Family Foundation survey, today's kids spend more than 53 hours a week with digital media.
