Reflections on drug endangered children

By Sue Seibert | sue_seibert@att.net

I wasn’t aware until a couple of months ago that Palo Pinto County has an active Alliance for Drug Endangered Children (DEC). When I taught, these were some of the kids I worked most closely with, and I was hopeful to see our county making strides toward helping these children. I attended a meeting, and I was energized to help in whatever way I can.

Perhaps I need to explain. These alliances, which are now visible across the country, unite caring professionals and other support individuals to help create safe, supportive, drug-free environments where all children can thrive and grow. They believe that all children deserve love, nurture and safety, and they help to strengthen collaborative efforts by providing a one-stop place where members can set up effective means to help children when their worlds fall apart because their caregivers are dealing or making drugs and are arrested for those illegal activities.

  • Seibert, Sue 2011.jpg Reflections on life

    Well, thankfully the plumber is here today (Monday) after a weekend without the back toilet, washing machine and shower. The plumber, Norman’s, would have come sooner, but we had too much to do to be here when he came, and we didn’t want to ask him on Sunday. That’s God’s day!

    I have been a member of ancestry.com since its inception - even before, as I was one of the first to participate in rootsweb.com which was subsequently pirated by a few not-so-good people and turned into Ancestry. Ah, but that is another story.

  • Reflections on the Woman's Club of Mineral Wells

    Ok, ok, I know some of you fellows were rather amused by my column a while back - the one telling you not to read. Well, while this column is about women, I hope you will read it and be encouraged by it to assist in the preservation of one of the few grand old ladies left in our town.

    While, as many of you know, I have been pretty skeptical about the revitalization of the Baker Hotel, I do believe it looks pretty good for its going forward.

    How many of you blog? I was asked the other day how many people here in Mineral Wells blog, and I really didn't know the answer to that.
