If you read this column, you know that I seem to be obsessed with educating our young people today. But I really am trying not to discuss it more than one week in every month! I am still in touch with many of the girls that I graduated high school with. Although we graduated in 1957, most of us are still alive! And on October 18th, I will be flying down to Myrtle Beach to spend another week with many of my girlfriends. This is the third time since we graduated that we have gotten together, and it is always a surprise to me how wonderful it is. Believe it or not, it’s like we just saw each other a few days ago. Of course, physically, we really have changed. My friends who were cheerleaders a…

Online Resource Center for Suicide Prevention is Launched

Many suicides are preventable, and modern tools, in the hands of professionals, community members, and at-risk individuals, can have a significant positive affect. These ideas represent the research and thinking behind the launch of the new Vermont Suicide Prevention Center (VtSPC) website at www.vtspc.org. “On the local, state and national level, people have been saddened by the recent deaths of Cheryl Hanna and Robin Williams,” said JoEllen TaralloFalk, Director of the Vermont Suicide Prevention Center. “The factors that lead to suicide can be complex, and increasingly, we recognize the need for communities at large - educators, parents, health and social service providers, arts profess…

Netflix Pick   I appreciate that our society has cracked down on public proclamations of prejudice. Of course I’m not saying that racism has been eradicated; but at least it is totally unacceptable to say the n-word in public. Gays and lesbians haven’t achieved equality yet; but at least they don’t have to hear the f-word or the d-word in mixed company anymore. Most able-bodied adults view physically handicapped people as our equals in every way, and I think that’s due in part to the eradication of the c-word. Compared to other oppressed minority groups, dwarfs haven’t made as much progress. The pejorative term midget hasn’t been stamped out like the other ugly slurs that I…
