It says Around Town but the headline is UTAH. Utah is not near Natick!! I think everyone should notRead More open an article on Patch unless they see their town's name in the headline. So If it doesn't say Natick, then we all know it is not LOCAL to the Natick Patch. The less clicks these Patch sites get, the fewer advertisers they will get and then perhaps they will realize if we want sensational news from across the country we'd go back to Patch's former owners AOL and the HuffPost! Those here from other Patch sites - I think you should do the same only click on articles that mention your community's name. No name. No click!

So how do they plan to raise awareness? Raising money is nice but raising awareness is more thanRead More money. It includes educating the community and families and the Veterans. It is making sure that there are programs or services that can be available. Are they connecting to NYS OMH or the VA or the Suicide Prevention Coalition of LI or OMHS? I think it is important to know that and your article is lacking that. Do they know what to do?

Mary, you are right, do they know what to do? Do they know what meds they should and shouldn't mix?Read More It isn't just about raising money and donating money, it needs to be deeper than that.

Mary, Glenn your correct...the article doesn't supply enough information on what was discussed atRead More the media event. Cow Harbor Warrior Weekend was created to thank and enable OIF/OEF wounded veterans to advance past their visible and “invisible injuries”, such as PTSD and TBI, and this year, we will be raising awareness of the suicide rate of “22” per day taking place amongst veterans….highlighting the resources available for prevention, hope and recovery, such as the NP VA Medical Center, The Semper Fi Fund, Paws of War and others the organization intends to publicize over the next 22 weeks.. Starting on April 11th, and the “22” weeks leading up to the second Warrior Weekend, they will have a succession of awareness activities and events designed to publicize not only the Cow Harbor Warrior Weekend, but more importantly the reasons why it is so incredibly necessary and that there is real hope for our suffering veterans…

When choosing colleges for you're kids do you wean out the biggest party schools in the country ?Read More For me the answer is definitly yes . Hoftra a great school and a greater commuter school .But like I said in my previous post its a party school for those who choose to party it is so easy . Sadly the facts show most freshman today to be immature and not capable of making rational decisions . Peer pressure comes into play and also the free feeling of being away from home . My desicion to not allow my kids to apply to Hofstra , were the stories they knew about from other kids and verifying pictures on Facebook . Agreed they will party , but most freshman's over consume and pay no attention to academics . No two are alike , for my older daughter academics is a prioty , she is graduating from Adelphi early , because she choose to work . Soon will be applying to graduate school . My youngest immature and non focused is finishing 2 years at Nassau and was excepted into 11 colleges ... Our choice came down to a beautiful Smaller University in New Orleans ... If you would have asked me 2 years ago to send her out of state I would have said no way . She was not ready . Today I say go and be careful of your choices . Not a guarantee .But you can bet we fought when I said no to out of state schools two years ago . Thank you Mommy came much later with her own growth . Nixed were the known party schools and good choices were made .I hope she continues . I had experienced much to my shock , the parents that choose to let their kids drink , starting in 9th grade , the endless parties they threw put me on the outs with them as the last Mom standing alone . In both my kids graduating classes I first hand saw a lot get thrown out for academic failure , but saw all their party posts online . Granted a parent really does not have access to grades in college we are left in the dark you have to take your kids word on that .Others sucessfully made it thru Freshman year , partying hardy . Some did not party and their academic acheivemnets well excel others .Choices both my kids have fast cars and tracking devices , yes I can see how fast they go and where they go . It does not mean they won't make bad choices , I was the party queen in college from my own mouth , I should have and could have made better choices . I parented both my kids through HS on chemo , you can bet there were nights I all but crawled to my car to find them and or pick them up from bad choices they made or could have . Mom come get me ! One of the best things I could have said to them " No matter how bad it is call me I will help you " What it really comes down to is this we can wean out , safety net , steer them in all directions but have no guarantee . But for the Grace of God go I , that is what my best friends father whispered in my ear when he overdosed in college . He came from a great home , had all the support and love a child could have . He made awful choices . I would never ever want to walk the path of the The Wynn family ... My heart goes out to them . Conner's life is gone there is no back tracking , no rectifying , no saving him . That is the sad part to die at such a young age is more then a heart could bare . His poor parents , how do we go on after such a finality ? I don't ever want to know . So Hi spy Mom is always lurking , and if I have to go out of state and make surprise visits I shall ... Keep your eyes on their road ! As best as you can . We can't blame anyone for a sad ending to a short life . We all have our own ... But for the grace of God go I and mine . It just makes me so sad for this family and young man . And yes Joanne there are just some schools in some places I would never send my kids , would you send yours into hell ? It's not a good beginning without a good foundation .We can start there . And it can be the safest place and the best school and still we have no warranty .

I just finished reading through that sleep study that you quoted in contemporary pediatrics. It wasRead More quite an interesting and enlightening article. However, it only supports your claims after you minimized the primary factors contributing to those sleep disorders; poor sleep behaviors, environmentals, etc. Eliminating/reducing of the hours of late night TV, computer use, cell phone use is their first and most important stimulant to curb. The electionic light exposure is the problem. Then secondly, comes caffeine based drinks; sodas, coffees, teas and pills. Yes, page three of the article does support your claims backed by studies but let's be real here. There are parents that don't even know their children are watching/creating porn on their (babysitting devices, a.k.a. ipads) instead of doing their homework in the first place! What you're clearly suggesting is beyond the mass majority due to a lack of their own span of attention/ mindless reality tv viewing/ slutty gossip magazine reading public. The family unit needs to be in order before you go and revamp the entire school district at great expense and inconvenience to all the working stiffs (working more than one job to make ends meet). When people start taking accountability for their own problems and still cannot yield the desired results, then bring up the study again over a cup of coffee. ;-)

This discussion should focus on finding what really works best to learn. Wake up call at 6 am forRead More high schoolers will change, as it's simply not required. Walking into a building for 6 hours a day to take classes in 40 minute intervals is absurd. Bombarding teens with data points on 6-8 different subjects per day needs review for efficacy. Immersive learning enables learning. Stay for an hour. Absorb. Question. Discuss. Apply. That's how many people learn best. This "speed dating" type structure has got to change.
