Education is key to child abuse prevention


 

 

 
 
May 31, 2018 – Teachers and other school professionals serve as an important first line of defense in the battle against child abuse. In our state, educators remain the largest professional group to report suspected child abuse and neglect. This time of year, children eagerly prepare for summer vacation, summer camps, trips to the pool, family vacations, and also decreased amounts of adult supervision. Children’s Advocacy Centers™ of Texas, Inc. (CACTX) encourages Texans to be active in child abuse prevention, through personal awareness of the signs and symptoms of child abuse, and we ask all adults to immediately report suspicions of abuse or neglect to Child Protective Services or local law enforcement.
 
 
 
“Education is key to child abuse prevention. Talk to the children in your life about body safety, appropriate boundaries, and the difference between good secrets and bad secrets. Discuss internet safety and the dangers about sharing too much information on social media. Open communication allows children to feel more comfortable in asking questions and divulging information,” said Joy Rauls, Executive Director of Children’s Advocacy Centers of Texas, Inc.  “If your child is attending a summer camp, program or summer child care, familiarize yourself with the program’s policies. Consider inquiring about the adult-to-child ratio, screening procedures for new and existing employees and visitors, and rules about one-on-one interaction.”
 
 
 
Be aware of the signs and symptoms of child abuse. Some children may not exhibit changes in behavior, however common signs may include:
 
 
 
Unexplained injuries
Changes in behavior
Regression to earlier behaviors
Fear of going home
Changes in eating or sleeping habits
Lack of personal care or hygiene
Risk-taking behaviors
Inappropriate sexual behaviors
 
 
You can make a difference in the life of a child.  If you suspect that a child may be the victim of abuse or neglect, please contact Child Protective Service’s Statewide Intake at (800)252-5400 or file a report at www.txabusehotline.org.  If a child is in immediate danger, please contact 911.

Free Fishing Day


 

 

 
AUSTIN – Texas offers a Free Fishing Day on the first Saturday in June every year to help kick off National Fishing and Boating Week. On this day anglers can fish on any public waterbody in the state without a fishing license.
 
To help celebrate Free Fishing Day, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) and other organizations are hosting many free events around the state on Saturday, June 2, 2018, to provide fun, high quality fishing opportunities to anglers of all skill levels and all ages.
 
Here are 10 fun ways families can celebrate Free Fishing Day in Texas:
 
Mentor or teach someone new to fish: On Free Fishing Day, reach out and take someone new fishing with you: a child, a relative or a friend. There’s no need to buy an extra fishing pole – the TPWD Tackle Loaner Program loans fishing equipment out just like a library loans books. 
 
Learn to make a cane fishing pole – Celebrate Free Fishing Day by making your very own cane fishing pole and learning the basics of how to fish at Martin Dies, Jr. State Park near Jasper from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. 
 
Compete in a catfishing tournament – The Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center in Athens is celebrating Free Fishing Day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with free admission, free food and drinks and free entry into a catfish tournament with all tackle and bait provided. Anglers may fish as individuals or as teams with an adult assisting a child to win fun prizes. 
 
Visit a Neighborhood Fishin’ lake – TPWD’s Neighborhood Fishin’ lakes provide urban angling access for the entire family across the state. In all, 18 Neighborhood Fishin’ lakes provide a great opportunity to catch channel catfish in Abilene, Amarillo, Austin, Bryan-College Station, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, San Angelo, Tyler, Waco and Wichita Falls. Information on lake locations and how-to fishing videos can be found online at www.neighborhoodfishin.org
 
Become a TPWD certified Angler Education Instructor – The Bass Pro Shops store in Pearland is hosting a free workshop from 10:00 to 2:30 p.m. for anyone interested in teaching fishing skills in their communities. The program provides the curriculum, equipment, materials and support to help volunteers successfully introduce youth and their families to fishing. 
 
Explore a new fishing hole – With more than 150 public lakes and community fishing lakes and 70 fishing locations at Texas State Parks, most anglers don’t have to travel very far to find prime fishing opportunities in the state. 
 
Attend the 24th Annual Mark Howell Memorial Fishing Rodeo – Lake Arrowhead State Park near Wichita Falls is celebrating Free Fishing Day by hosting the 24th Annual Mark Howell Memorial Fishing Rodeo. The event includes a Kid Fish and Adult Rough Fish contest. Fishing supplies such as poles and tackle will be available from the tackle loaner program while supplies last.
 
Become an outdoorsman in the Big Country – Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, the City of Abilene, Abilene Zoo, and various other organizations will provide outdoor education activities for kids and adults 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Abilene Outdoor Adventures event. Participants can enjoy fishing education and fishing for catfish at the Neighborhood Fishin’ Program’s Grover Nelson small pond. Other activities include archery, air rifles, wildlife education, plant identification activities, backpacking and camping demonstrations, geocaching and more. 
 
Go fishing on the Pedernales River – Pack a picnic and visit Lyndon B. Johnson State Park & Historic Site near Stonewall for a day of fishing on the Pedernales River. Poles and bait will be provided by the park. 
 
Attend a fishing clinic in the Texas Panhandle – At Caprock Canyons State Park & Trailway, visitors can learn to fish at Lake Theo with a TPWD certified Angler Education instructor from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. The event aims to help ease frustrations and fears by teaching basic fishing instruction from the right type of gear to how to rig up your own fishing pole and casting techniques. 
 
Although June 2 is designated as Free Fishing Day in Texas, fishing is free year-round at every Texas State Park.

Of all the general officers produced during the American Civil War, perhaps none was as intriguing as Prince Camille Armand de Polignac of France.  On June 9th at 2:00 pm, guests will get a chance to learn more about this fascinating figure during a special presentation by park staff.  
 
Of noble lineage and the highest ranking foreign-national to serve in the Confederate army, Polignac led a brigade and subsequently a division of Louisiana and Texas troops with distinction at the battles of Mansfield and Pleasant Hill on April 8 and 9, 1864.  A royal soldier of fortune and adventurer who excelled in mathematics, science, and the art of war, Prince de Polignac would serve in three major wars of the mid-19th century and become a skilled military officer.  Come learn about this unique personality who would go down in history as "The Lafayette of the South."
 
Mansfield State Historic Site is located on LA Hwy. 175, three miles south of Mansfield.  Admission is $4 per person ages 4-61; seniors 62 and over and children 3 and under are admitted free.  For more information, call 318.872.1474 or 888.677.6267, or visit www.LaStateParks.com.

Joaquin High School Project Graduation 2018


 

 
Joaquin High School Project Graduation was a huge success. Seniors attended the event which began at 11:00 PM and lasted until 5:00 AM. Students participated in games/ contests such as Wheel of Fortune, Free Throw Basketball, Hot Potatoes, Human Hungry Hippo, Limbo, Obstacle course, etc.  Throughout the night, students munched on pizza, chips, cookies, donuts, fruit, and Chicken Biscuits in the early morning.
 
Project Graduation originated in Maine in response to the deaths of twelve teenagers in related highway crashes. The idea of Project Graduation is spreading across the nation during graduation and prom night, since these are the two most deadly nights for teenagers. Project Graduation has saved lives in every community where it is held and hundreds of schools in the state of Texas host these parties.
 
The success of this event is in direct relation to the commitment of parents, school administration and staff, community members and businesses. These volunteers donated their time and money to provide and exciting and unforgettable evening of fun and fellowship for the graduates.
 
Project Graduation is a drug and alcohol-free party honoring graduates. It provides a safe alternative to party hopping. It keeps graduates off the roads, prevents any of them from becoming an accident statistic, and their parents rest easy knowing their son/daughter is safely celebrating.
 
Some of the reasons the Joaquin High School Graduates chose to participate in Project Graduation were:
-Every attending graduate received $250 plus money throughout night
-Every attending graduate drew out of box to win Gift card, certificates and gifts donated       
  by businesses.
-Competitive competitions and contests were had throughout the night
-Non-stop food and music provided
-This is the last time all of the graduates will spend together
 
We thank the many businesses and various individuals who donated to this great cause for all the seniors to enjoy!

Sally Ride Stamp Launches Tomorrow


 

 

SAN DIEGO — Sally Ride, America’s first woman in space, a pioneering astronaut, brilliant physicist and dedicated educator who inspired the nation, will be commemorated on a Forever stamp tomorrow. Share the news using the hashtags #SallyRideForever and #AstronautStamps.
 
The Sally Ride Forever stamp 5 p.m. PDT dedication ceremony, free and open to the public, will take place at the Price Center, University of California San Diego. Ride served as a professor of physics at the university, which also is home to Sally Ride Science @ U C San Diego, a non-profit organization she co-founded to inspire young people in science, engineering, technology and math (STEM) and to promote STEM literacy.   
 
Followers of the U.S. Postal Service’s Facebook page can view the ceremony live at Facebook.com/USPS. The stamps may be pre-ordered now at this link for delivery shortly after tomorrow’s issuance.
 
“Sally Ride’s history-making journey has made it easier for young girls to dream of one day being an astronaut, an engineer, a physicist or a mathematician. Today, girls don’t just dream. Because of trailblazers like Sally Ride, they have been empowered to do!” said U.S. Postal Service Chief Information Officer and Executive Vice President Kristin Seaver.
 
Scheduled to join Seaver are Pradeep K. Khosla, chancellor at UC San Diego; Becky Petitt, vice chancellor for equity, diversity and inclusion at UC San Diego, who will serve as master of ceremonies;  Billie Jean King, tennis legend, champion of social justice and Ride’s friend; Ellen Ochoa, the first Hispanic woman in space, director of NASA’s Johnson Space Center, and another friend of Ride; and Tam O’Shaughnessy, co-founder and executive director of Sally Ride Science @ U C San Diegoand Ride’s widow.
 
“Sally started collecting stamps when she was a girl, and she continued to do so her whole life —especially stamps of the Olympics and space exploration,” said O’Shaughnessy. “Sally would be deeply honored to have her portrait on a U.S. stamp.”
 
“I admired Sally for her intellect that she applied as a scientist, her focus and passion for STEM education, and her astounding competence in so many areas, including her critical contributions to NASA and the nation,” said Ochoa. “As much in demand as she was, she always made time to meet with young women who dreamed of becoming astronauts. I am thrilled to be part of the Sally Ride Forever stamp dedication, continuing her legacy of inspiring people across the country, and indeed around the world.”
 
The stamp art features a colorful portrait of Ride in her light blue space suit with a dramatic depiction of a space shuttle lifting off in the background. Sketched first in charcoal and then rendered in oil paint, artist Paul Salmon of Burke, VA, reflects her positivity and confident spirit, as well as the excitement and danger of space travel. Art director Ethel Kessler of Bethesda, MD, designed the stamp.
 
Her Legacy
Ride galvanized the country with her pioneering space flight and inspired generations of students as a physicist, astronaut and champion of science education.
 
After completing her doctorate in physics, Ride joined NASA’s 1978 class of astronaut candidates for the agency’s new space shuttle program. She was the first woman to serve as a capsule communicator for Columbia’s second flight in 1981, communicating from the ground with both the shuttle crew in space and the flight director at Mission Control. In spring 1982, NASA assigned her to her first flight crew as a mission specialist.
 
On June 18, 1983, at 7:33 a.m., Ride realized her ultimate adventure when she launched through Earth’s atmosphere aboard space shuttle Challenger, becoming the first American woman to reach space. For six days, she worked closely with her four male crewmates, proving to the world below that women were as adept as men in the final frontier. She completed a second successful trip to space the next year, breaking another barrier as a member of the first flight crew with two women.
 
Ride was the only person to sit on the investigative panels for both the Challenger and Columbia accidents. As a professor, she used her experiences in space to explain complicated physics concepts. She also co-authored six children’s books about science with O’Shaughnessy. In 2001, Ride and O’Shaughnessy joined three friends to start a science education company, Sally Ride Science, with the goal of narrowing the gender gap in science, technology, engineering and math.
 
The Sally Ride stamp is being issued as a Forever stamp. This Forever stamp will always be equal in value to the current First-Class Mail 1-ounce price.

DeSoto Parish Sheriff Scholarship Recipients


 

 

Sheriff Jayson Richardson would like to announce that the following DeSoto Parish students have been named recipients of an academic scholarship from the Louisiana Sheriff's Scholarship Program for the 2017-2018 school year.
 
Bonnie Woods of Logansport High School
Jarmoyhl Ragsdale of Mansfield High School
Christian Tyler Evans of North DeSoto High School
 
 
 
 
The Sheriff's Scholarship is made possible by the Louisiana Sheriff's Honorary Membership Program (LSHMP.) Louisiana Sheriffs provide scholarships to graduating high school students from each parish where the Sheriff is an affiliate of the program.
 
Qualities such as academic achievement, leadership, and character are considered in making selections of Sheriff's scholarship recipients.  The only limitations are that applicants be permanent residents of Louisiana; scholarships be utilized in higher education within the state; and students be enrolled as full-time, undergraduate students.  Scholarships will be awarded in sixty-four parishes throughout the state.
 
Ticaya Davis and LaKendrick Ross, both from Mansfield High School, were named alternates so that in the event a recipient is unable to take advantage of the scholarship award, the alternate (first and/or second) can do so,” according to the Sheriff.
 
In closing Sheriff Richardson said, "Academic awards by the Louisiana Sheriff's Scholarship Program to Louisiana students demonstrate what the LSHMP is all about.  This is one of our finest accomplishments.  It invests in Louisiana's future and gives something back to our community.  This would not be possible without the kind and generous support of DeSoto Parish's Honorary Members.”

Children's Mental Health Awareness Month Tri-County Information


 

 

May is Children’s Mental Health Awareness Month
 
May 6-12 is observed as Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week
 
May 10 is observed as Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day
 
This year’s theme:  Partnering for Health and Hope Following Trauma
 
Tri-County Community Action Had Start/Early Head Start Programs delivers the Center-base and Home-base programs, providing a full array of comprehensive services such as Education, Health, Dental, Nutrition, Mental Health and Services for Children with Disabilities.
 
The Center-base program offers a full range of services.  It provides education and child development services in the classroom setting. Head Start is required to fill 10% of enrollment slots to children with disabilities.  Children with disabilities are included in all activities, and they play and learn as all children. The Center-base program provides high quality services that promote a child’s cognitive, social and emotional growth for later success in school.  The program promotes responsive and effective teacher-child interactions. The Center-based program uses research-based curriculum and screening tools to support individualization and growth in the areas of child development.
 
The Home-base program also offers a full range of services.  It provides education and child development services through visits with the child’s parents, primarily in the child’s home and through group socialization opportunities.  In the Home-base program the goal is to assist and support the parent in being the child’s first and most influential teacher.  A Parent Educator visits both the parent and the child in the home on a weekly basis for 90 minutes.  Parent Educators provide parents with information about child development and role model educational activities that are designed to provide ongoing development of the child.  The Home-based program uses research-based curriculum to support the social-emotional development of the child and supports the child’s school readiness.  Parent Educators use the Teaching Strategies Gold Assessment tool to assess each child’s development and share information with parents three times a year, in fall, winter and spring during a home visit.
 
Parents are offered the opportunity to attend two group socializations each month to observe their children interacting with other children, to socialize with other parents and to participate in a parent education presentation.
 
Mental Health Professionals provide 3 classroom and 3 Socialization Observations throughout the year, to effectively identify and support interventions for families and to address staff concerns about a child’s mental health concerns.  
Individual Observations are provided for children as needed to assist parents and teaching staff in addressing concerns.
 
Head Start uses a program called Conscious Discipline to promote Children’s Mental Health, Well Being and Self-regulation skills of children, staff and parents.

Longleaf Ridge Phase II


 

 

BEAUMONT, Texas — A conservation easement in Jasper County, recently acquired by Texas A&M Forest Service for $2.7 million, will permanently protect nearly 5,500 acres of sustainably managed timberland in East Texas.
 
The easement is located north of Jasper in the area known as Longleaf Ridge, a line of hills which supports some of the only remaining longleaf pine forest in Texas and is home to the region’s best spring-fed creeks, waterfalls and thriving wildlife populations.  Protection of this tract is part of an ambitious conservation effort to connect the Angelina and Sabine National Forests.
 
Funding for the purchase was provided through the Forest Legacy Program and funded in part by grants from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Texas Farm and Ranch Land Conservation Program, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation through Walmart’s Acres for America Program and The Nature Conservancy.
 
"TPWD has long recognized the ecological significance of the forests, streams, and special habitats that make up Longleaf Ridge, and considers their protection to be a high conservation priority for Texas,” Said Carter Smith, Executive Director of Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. “This project epitomizes what can be accomplished when the public and private sector work together to accomplish lofty conservation goals."
 
Longleaf Ridge lies within the historic longleaf pine ecosystem that once covered 90 million acres of the United States. Less than 3 percent remains, making this easement a priority for America's Longleaf Restoration Initiative, a national effort focusing public and private resources on restoring and protecting longleaf pine forests.
 
“This working lands easement is a wonderful example of the conservation that the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), through Walmart’s Acres for America Program, supports,” said Jeff Trandahl, executive director and CEO, NFWF.  “Not only is it important for wildlife, but Longleaf Ridge provides exceptional value as it lies in a priority area under the America’s Longleaf Restoration Initiative, a partnership working to bring back the native forest iconic to much of the southeastern United States.”
 
The conservation easement was purchased from Crown Pine Timber LP, a limited partnership managed by Campbell Global, a timber investment and management firm based in Portland, Oregon.  The easement will prohibit subdivision and extensive development of the tract, while allowing timber harvest to continue.  The easement is called Longleaf Ridge Phase II as it is the second tract protected in the area; a nearby 4,785-acre easement was purchased in 2014.
 
The Forest Legacy Program is a federal program funded by the Land and Water Conservation Fund and administered by the USDA Forest Service.  It encourages the voluntary protection of privately owned forestland primarily through the acquisition of conservation easements. These easements are legally binding agreements transferring development rights from one party to another without removing the property from private ownership.
 
“Texas lands are owned and managed primarily by private owners,” said Tom Boggus, Texas State Forester. “They are critical in conserving and protecting our state’s trees, forests and related natural resources.”
 
This type of conservation – often called a working forest conservation easement – keeps forestlands in private ownership while conserving the land for future generations.  Landowners and local communities continue to realize economic gain from timber management while the forest provides other benefits such as watershed protection, wildlife habitat, recreation and scenic values.
 
“This easement contains many of the most important features that we want to conserve in East Texas, including rare plants and more than 2,000 acres of longleaf pine forest which has been restored by Campbell Global and Temple-Inland before them,” said David Bezanson, The Nature Conservancy’s protection and easement manager. 
 
Much of the property will continue to be managed for longleaf pine with timber harvest allowed according to a forest stewardship plan.

National Survey Recognizes Panola College in Top Tech-Savvy Community Colleges


 

 

 

 

 

The Center for Digital Education’s Digital Community Colleges Survey Awards honor community colleges utilizing technology to engage students, collaborate with K-12 and other educational institutions, and improve learning.
 
Panola College earned a spot in the top 10 ranking of Digital Community Colleges in the most recent survey and competition. Panola College was the only college in Texas to be awarded in the small college category of schools with under 5,000 students and placed seventh in the top ten. Allen West, Panola College Director of Information Technology, made the announcement on Wednesday, April 25, 2018.
 
Now in its thirteenth year, the Digital Community Colleges Survey analyzes how community colleges use a range of technologies to improve services to students, faculty, staff, and the community at large.
 
Award winners demonstrated innovative uses of technology, including online courses and mobile environments, mobile apps, secure platforms, and wireless networks.
 
The survey also revealed insights about community colleges’ technology priorities. Colleges surveyed indicated that mobility devices/app support is their top priority for the coming year, followed by cyber security tools and testing, website redesign/updates, upgrading classroom technologies, digital content and curriculum, and disaster recovery/business continuity. The survey revealed that 34% of colleges have a strategy in place for the use of mobile devices; 35% have a full-time Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) or similar full-time staff in charge of cybersecurity; 71% of the colleges’ websites have responsive web design; and 88% of colleges have off-site data storage redundancies in place.
 
All accredited U.S. community colleges are eligible to participate in the Digital Community Colleges Survey within three classifications based on enrollment size.

VFW TO OBSERVE VICTORY IN EUROPE (VE) DAY


 

 

 
Each year the World War II Allies remember May 8th, 1945, the date when they accepted the unconditional surrender of Nazi Germany.  Adolf Hitler committed suicide during the Battle of Berlin so the surrender of Germany was authorized by his replacement, President of Germany Karl Donitz.
 
In the United Kingdom more than one million people celebrated in the streets and in the United States President Harry Truman who turned 61 that day dedicated the victory to the memory of his predecessor, Franklin D. Roosevelt.  President Roosevelt had died of a cerebral hemorrhage less than a month earlier.
 
Shelby County Memorial Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8904 and the Auxiliary will hold an observance to commemorate the 73rd Anniversary of VE Day on Tuesday, May 8th, 2018 at the Veterans Memorial on the grounds of the Historic Shelby County Court House.  The remembrance will begin at 10 am with the laying of a Memorial Wreath in honor of those who served, those killed in action and those still missing in the European Theater during World War II.  Names of 66 Shelby County Veterans who died in Europe or are still missing will also be read.  The wreath will remain on display for the day.  As always the public is cordially invited to remember their fellow Americans.
