National Campus Safety Awareness Month Tips:
• Do not accept open drinks at parties, especially from strangers. This also includes any soft drink. If you're drinking from a bottle or can, open it yourself
• Never leave your drink unattended. If you ask someone to watch it, make sure it is someone you trust.
• Never go out to a bar, party or social event alone. Go with a trustworthy friend.
• Don't drink anything that has an unusual taste, or appearance (salty taste, has excessive foam, or residue).
• Never mix drugs and alcohol.

Congratulations to our Craig County Advocate- Kayla Goforth, on obtaining her CDSVRP Certification. The purpose of the CDSVRP process is to foster uniformity in domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking services throughout the State of Oklahoma, set standards for certifying professionals advocating for victims of gender-based violence, and regulating the process of certification. To receive certification, candidates are required to complete the CDSVRP application process including letters of reference from a colleague, a community professional, and a collaborating agency, candidate's written philosophy statement, candidate's resume, and background screening. After acceptance into the CDSVRP program, the candidate must complete a 40-hour intensive training program, pass a written examination with a score of 85% or higher, followed by completing 1,040 documented hours in a domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking program, and submit two evaluations and a final recommendation made by their certification supervisor.

Long story short- it is a WHOLE LOT of work, but increases the professionalism and training of our advocacy staff. Kayla marks our fourth current advocate to obtain a CDSVRP certification.

We are so proud of you Kayla! Keep up the great work!

Are there any storm shelters in town for public use?
REACH OUT To the father of his father's father... for it's he who taught his son.... that when...in life...words weren't enough... his fists could overcome... his feelings of insecurity... the anger and rage inside... the notion that somehow force... could protect his childish pride. Through all the years...of anguish and tears... round and round the carousel... again he passed his legacy of pain... his inheritance of hell... to another generation... of men who will never be men... because as he has done to his son... so his son will do again. Animals act on instinct... but only the lowest ones... abuse the family around them... the time has finally come... to show these pathetic creatures... for the cowards they really are... today...gathered here together... we are just the tiniest part... of the huge and growing movement... that is demanding an immediate end... to the tolerance of any abuse... by these animals who think they are men. Fear has kept this lady... from leaving and living her life... isolation has insured him... that she would remain his wife. Love for her innocent children... has forced her to quietly endure... the pain both mental and physical... hoping someday she might find a cure... for whatever it was that changed... the man she loved back when... to the monster who now holds her captive... as he loves her then hits her again. She need but look around... at the army that is gathering before her... to see the power she has gained... through the millions of those who support her. Now she will never be alone... if she should decide to go... now there's a legion of friends... who will help her because they know... just exactly what she is feeling... because they've been there themselves... they've known the terror and uncertainty... the fear of asking for help. So here we are today to offer another solution... we can change the way it is... to how it will be in the future. United we can tell the father... and the father's father before him... it’s his turn to be afraid... because now the laws won't ignore him. This crime will never again... be called just a family matter... next time he raises his fist... to slap, beat...or batter... the lady he promised to love... the love he promised to protect... we promise this lady today... we will never again reject... her pleas for understanding... her fear of leaving her home... her fear of losing her children... her feelings of being alone. All of us here today vow to stand beside you... if you decide to leave... we’ll be there to guide you. All of us here today... vow to change the laws... that have always up till now... ignored the problem because... up till now we've been hiding... like the ostrich with his head in the sand up till now...pretending... we didn't know...so we couldn't understand. But finally...it's out in the open... it's time for the cowards to run there's an army of angry people... and the battle has just begun. How dare you beat the ones who love you... just because you can. from now on...we promise you this... each time you raise your hand... you will hear such a cry... such a blood curdling scream... from the millions of people all over the world... who have lived that horrible dream. You’ll never again be allowed... to think that you have the right... to raise your fist to anyone... because of some stupid fight. It's a shame it took so much pain... to finally see the way... maybe...at last....it’s coming to an end... as all of us join here today... to promise each and every woman... with bruises and broken bones... reach out...and we will be there... and you will never, ever...again be alone. co 1999 skybird pub co james bruce joseph sievers
