I Don't Think So!

The word Drug is defined as "any substance other than food that can affect the way your mind and body work." There are hundreds of different drugs, each with its particular effect on the body's nervous system. Narcotics are a series of drugs that affect the mind, causing mental changes. The United States Government will not allow any new drug to be prescribed by a doctor or sold by a pharmacist until the drug has been thoroughly tested and proven to be medically safe. These tests take as long as years before they are approved for use by the public; and even after they have been approved and sold for years, serious side effects may appear and the drug is removed and discarded for any further medical use.

Unstable drugs, referred to on the streets as Crack, PCP, Ice, LSD, Speed and many others, are made up of several chemical substances, which are made illegally in hideaways without proper equipment or skills to carefully measure exact proportions - resulting in a drug that no one knows what the after-effects will be.

FACT: Unstable drugs are responsible for killing thousands of young people experimenting with drugs each year. Those who escape death are sometimes confined to a mental institution.

A drug dealer's interest is in your money - not your health!

Some of Life’s Dangers

We are taught as children to avoid danger. In our world there are small creatures like snakes and spiders that if they bite or sting you, you will die. Over 30,000 people a year die from snake bite alone. Just the sight of such living things sends a message of DANGER to the observer and one stays away. There are other dangers out in the world that take more lives than the attacks totaled from those living creatures. The sad part is people who suffer from these killers place them into their own bodies. The end result is the same. So what is the difference?

Nick: I consider myself somewhat of a hobbyist, in other words, interested in a variety of hobbies - not just one. I have found by expanding my talents, it can benefit my family, friends, and in some cases, earn some extra income in the process.

Most of all, these hobbies are fun!

By getting involved in these positive alternatives, it will help you stay drug free and trouble free, and that is a life long reward.

John: I enjoy creating computer-generated graphics and I understand I have only scratched the surface of this medium. I have spent many hours relaxing in front of my 19" monitor and designing.

* * *


Yes that's right, give me a recipe, a spoon and a few goodies from the local grocery store and look out when the dinner bell rings! In class I have been exchanging recipes with some of my friends that also like to hang out in the kitchen and create masterpieces that tingle the taste buds.

Mike: A friend of mine taught me how to use a 35mm camera. One day I took a few photographs up in the mountains and as we all do gave it no more thought, until I received the film back from the lab. Most of the photos I took that day were the usual snapshots but one really turned out nice. I was so impressed with the photo I had it enlarged to a whopping 5" x 7" enlargement. I began wondering why this one photograph stood out from the rest... and that is how it all started.

Greg: Woodworking

When I was about 8 years old I watched as my Grandmother cleaned out one of those catch-all drawers that everyone has in their bedroom. She came across a small green cardboard box that contained a wooden chain about 24" long. She began telling me the story of this wooden chain's creation and creator. My Great Grandfather would sit for hours after a hard-day work and with his little pocket-knife whittle away at long pieces of wood. I sat studying this chain and all its detail while the story was told. I thought to myself; here my Great Grandfather, who has been gone for many years, has left something behind. Something that was made with his own two hands and a family keepsake. I thought it very special that as long as the chain survived, so would the memory of my Great Grandfather.

Woodworking is something I started by watching my Father work in his shop. I collected scraps of wood and with a few nails... created nothing, but it sure was fun. With a variety of small hand and power tools I was taught the basics. Once in high school I started taking wood shop classes and became proficient with the concepts and tools of woodworking. One of my first projects was a chess/checker board made out of the hardwoods maple and walnut. I have told my son of the boards creation, I think it will survive, and hopefully, so will the memory of its creator.
