Prairies and Ponds at Oakdale is a natural habit restoration and preservation effort by a team of citizens groups, federal and local agencies and nonprofit wildlife advocates. The site was drained and farmed in the 1940s through 1960s as part of the state-run Oakdale Center for Developmental Disabilities complex. The 35-acre project site is located south of Oregon Road and west of Millville, within two miles of six elementary schools and adjacent to the Chatfield School and Mott Community College campus. A 40-acre wooded site and a 100-acre riverbed area on the former Oakdale property have been designated for future natural habitat preservation. The Prairies and Ponds project plan includes the following: Expansion of existing wetland areas to increase waterfowl habitat. The site is part of a flyway for waterfowl and has been identified as prime nesting habitat for ducks by the US Fish & Wildlife Service and Ducks Unlimited. Introduction of classic Midwest prairie habitat of prairie grasses and wildflowers in upland areas of the site, to provide habitat for field birds and serve as a natural classroom for the many schools nearby. Development of a passive trail system throughout the site, with an observation mound, boardwalks, platforms and teaching stations located throughout the site to serve primarily as a teaching resource. Project development committee included local ecology and wildlife experts from Lapeer Schools and Seven Ponds Nature Center, and City of Lapeer administration. Primary project sponsors are: WIN (Saginaw Bay Watershed Initiative Network), US Fish & Wildlife Service, Ducks Unlimited and the City of Lapeer. At first this place may seem to be quiet and peaceful, but if you stop and pay attention you will be able to observe a community bustling with activity. Wetlands are known to be the most biologically productive ecosystems in the temperate regions of the earth, a rival even to tropical rain forests. Wetlands are a community of thousands of living things and function as a result of the web of interrelationships between these living things. The floating dock has no rail but a bumper edge treatment to prevent roll off by a person using a wheelchair, walker or stroller.

Heroin is the drug of choice in Lapeer County. The reason is because it is inexpensive to purchase. Heroin is a highly addictive drug. It's the most abused of all the opiates. Heroin is derived from morphine, which comes from certain varieties of poppy plants. When processed it looks like a white or brown powder or a black sticky substance called "black tar heroin." The Risks of Heroin Use "Pure heroin" is the term used for heroin that is not mixed with another substance. However "street heroin" is "cut" or mixed with other drugs or with white substances such as sugar, starch, or powdered milk. Street heroin can also be mixed with strychnine or other poisons putting the drug user's life in jeopardy. Because heroin addicts do not know what the strength of the pure drug may be or what it may be mixed with, they are at risk of overdose or death. Studies have shown that the average heroin user after five years of use has a 90% chance of having contracted Hepatitis C. The transmission of HIV and other diseases that can occur from sharing non-sterile needles is a high risk for heroin addicts. Routes of Administration Heroin is typically injected, snorted, or smoked. Injection provides the fastest rush and greatest intensity of the drug, usually within seconds. When heroin is snorted or smoked the effects are usually felt within 10 to 15 minutes. Smoking and snorting heroin do not produce the rush as quickly or as intensely as injection does; yet all three forms of heroin administration are addictive. Injection, referred to as "shooting up", is the most popular route of heroin use among addicted users seeking treatment. However, researchers have observed that patterns are shifting to more addicts snorting referred to as "sniffing" or smoking heroin. The shift in heroin abuse patterns from injection to snorting/smoking is introducing the use of heroin to more diverse group of users. Adults over the age of 30 continue to be one of the largest user groups abusing heroin. Heroin Side Effects: Short-term effects include: Physical sensation rush; Slow shallow breathing; Confused poor mental functioning; Nausea/vomiting; Dulling of pain; Miscarriage; Long term effects include: Addiction; Infectious diseases (HIV/AIDS, TB, Hepatitis B and C and other blood born illnesses); Collapsed veins; Bacterial infections; Infections and abscesses; Damage to heart lining and valves; Arthritis; Rheumatologic problems. Signs of Heroin Abuse Constricted (small) pupils Vomiting; Constipation; Nodding Out; Hyper, wakeful and alert before nodding out; Loss of old, established friendships; New, undesirable friends; Frequent, secret phone calls; Depression, apathy, lethargy; Track marks on body from injecting; Unexplained time away from home; Sudden changes in behavior or performance; Itching and scratching (itchy blood); Weight loss; Cessation of menstrual cycle; Finding plastic zip loc baggies and burned silver spoons; Aluminum foil & gum wrappers with burn marks; Missing shoelaces from shoes (used as a tie off for injecting); Dry mouth; Droopy appearance, as if extremities are "heavy"; Disorientated, cloudy mental functioning; Infections (at injection site); Shallow breathing; Euphoria or rush; Sleepiness; Poor hygiene Drug Paraphernalia discovered; Withdrawal. Withdrawal symptoms from heroin can start a few hours to one day after sustained use of the drug. Withdrawal symptoms can include: sweating, anxiety, depression, profound sense of futility, feeling of heaviness, intense cramping in limbs, crying, insomnia, cold sweats, chills, runny nose, severe muscle and bone aches, nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, and fever. Many heroin addicts also describe experiencing a condition referred to as "itchy blood." This condition results in the addict compulsively scratching or picking at their skin resulting in cuts and bruises. There is no threat of death in terminating heroin use suddenly as there is with alcohol, benzos and barbiturates. Although clearly stopping heroin use "cold turkey" without the use of counteractive drugs to reduce the above listed symptoms is incredibly uncomfortable. Many crimes in the county are related to drug use. The addiction will cause people to steal from retail stores, family and friends to pay for the purchase of drugs. Calls to the detectives office, no matter how small or insignificant you think they are, will often be very helpful in solving larger crimes. If you would like to give or receive more information call Craig or Jeff at 810-664-0833 or email cgormley@ci.lapeer.mi.us

Peter Greene. Suggestions on Helping SurvivorsConnection with family & friends-It is physically and psychologically stablizing for survivors to feel the support of family and friends who can offer compassion and help in some of these ways: Make contact & continue to check up on the survivor, even it at first refused and as time passes. Actually help with practical needs-trauma & grief are disorganizing and exhausting. Refrain from asking for explanations. Validate the intensity of the grief. Listen to the telling and often re-telling of events. Respect the faith or spiritualaity expressed or not. Be aware of the needs of any children and teens to be comforted, to speak, to ask questions. It is ok to say "I don't know" but "I'm here to be with you". Bewilling to remember and speak about the deceased for everything he or she was beyond this tragic event. Access on-line information for groups like the American Association of Suicide Prevention, Suicide Prevention in the Military, Life-lines School Programs to enhance support and guide survivors to important resources.ResourcesLapeer County Community Mental Health Hotline 1-810-664-0500.

Volunteers Needed
It is a new year and our team here at the Family Literacy Center has started a new initiative called "Utilizing Our Talents." We know that many of our volunteers have exceptional skills in specific areas and we are not tapping into that incredible pool of talents. We hope to change this. We have identified specific needs within the Family Literacy Center and have developed basic job descriptions for these needs. It is our hope that our current volunteers may discover that they can help in new ways that may be very fulfilling to them. We also hope that our volunteer team will feel more comfortable recruiting new volunteers that may not want to be traditional volunteer tutors (although we always have a need for them as well). There is SO much our volunteers can do to help us achieve the mission of the Family Literacy Center which is "building skills and enriching lives through literacy in the Lapeer County area." Please review this extensive list of volunteer jobs. There is a great variety of jobs we need filled. Contact us if you believe you possess the skills necessary to be successful in one or more positions. We will provide training, support and supplies. Thank you for your time and commitment to the Family Literacy Center!
Why should I be a tutor? Most of us are looking for a way to make a difference in the world we live in. Teaching an adult to read is a satisfying way to do that. As a tutor, you help to "free a mind" to learn, to grow and achieve. You see a person "take wings" moving from self-doubt to self-confidence, from an "I can't do it" attitude to an "anything is possible" attitude. At the same time, YOU are learning, growing, achieving and gaining new perspectives on the world you live in. What better incentive could there be? Visit: www.readlapeer.org

Wally Green, organizer of the third annual Made-In-Michigan Fim Festival, believes this year's billing is the best yet. Walley seeks to promote movies made here in Michigan and give new filmmakers a venue for their work. The film festival is presented by Lapeer native Wally Green and the Lapeer County Film Office. According to Green, this year's turnout promises to be the best so far. Last year the festival received seven entries from filmmakers. This year there were 43 submissions, ranging from short to feature length, 24 of which will be screened at the PIX over the course of two days. The in-person visit by Becker and other members of the film industry is exactly what the Lapeer County Film Office was hoping to see. Apart from annual film festival the non-profit group works to bring filmmakers into the Lapeer area. The Michigan Film Initiative offers a tax credit incentive to Michigan based movies, prompting an in-state boost in the industry over the last few years. Jeff Daniels continues to make and promote movies in Michigan, his native state. Sean Penn recently finished filming a movie in Bad Axe and Hugh Jackman's latest film, "Real Steel", was just shot in Oxford. "Now we just need to get one here in Lapeer," said Green. The Made-In-Michigan Film Festival is hoping to draw more attention to the area and attract more Hollywood stars each year. "Our goal," said Green, "is to enrich community life in the area, culturally and economically." Tickets for the film festival cost $5 and cover both Friday and Saturday. Attendees are welcome to stay for as many films as they wish to see. For more information, call 810-793- 5819 or go to www.madeinmichiganfilmfest. org Film festival schedule (running times)

Rotary members signed up to deliver dictionaries this week for our Rotary/Kiwanis Dictionary Project. We are delivering a Dictionary to each 3rd grade student. We also read them a story. The Children are so excited to find new things inside their new dictionaries. This is also our Reading Project. The Children really enjoy listening to a story from a book we pick from their library or one that we bring in from our own home. The mission of the Dictionary Project is to donate dictionaries to children and encourage them to learn new words so that they will be able to use the English language effectively. We used the Dictionary to look up the words Service and Club and explained to them that Rotary and Kiwanis are SERVICE CLUBS giving back to the lapeer community. Service: helping others Club: a group of people who have organized themselves with or for a common purpose.

I spent a great month, I played a lot of soccer game and lost only one, I scored a few goals for the team. At school everything is fine I worked on my senior project in English class, I use to stay at school after class to work on it with my English teacher, she is very helpful. In speech class I did a speech about my life in France with a PowerPoint, I think student liked that, they was interesting. I went to Homecoming with some friends, it was pretty funny I had a good time. Then I went to a haunted house with Clayton and some other friend, it was nice too. I have a lot of friends at school so everything is okay. ""Yann currently has injured his knee playing Soccer. He has a Doctor's Appointment this Friday""

Tomorrow I'm starting my 5th week in France! It's unbelievable. The time just flies by. I arrived August 26 completely whiped out and jet lagged. Frederic Pellerin, my yeo, picked me and some other exchange students up at the airport. We ate lunch at his appartment in Paris and he gave us a little walking tour. After, I went to a week of language camp. It was really great. I met some other exchange students and we became tight. Not all of them are in my district so that's kind of cool. I get to see them in two weeks at a big conference! I'm so excited! During the week I stayed with another family who lived in Bourges, my town, because my host family lives in a town close to Bourges. It was just easier to get to the camp (which was at my school) each morning. It was really nice to meet another family. Their name is the Buchet's. They have two kids, but the daughter is in college in a near by town so I haven't met her yet. Their son, Adrien, goes to school with me and became my first french friend. :) After the week was over I got to meet my family. The Gillets. They're so wonderful! They do everything they can to make sure I am comfortable and I don't tell them when I don't like some kind of food becuase then they make sure they never eat it. EVER. It's so sweet of them. They found out I like eating green beans raw, something they think is the weirdest thing ever, but they made sure to leave out green beans for the rest of the season. Their son goes to college an hour away but he comes home on the weekends. He's always fun but always tired. Gladys, my sis, is a senior in high school which means she always has lots of homework, but she always has time for singing horribly off key to the radio with me (they listen to american music! so weird!), eating sweets, and karate practice. I LOVE the food. the bread is to die for. Literally. And my family is on a mission to make sure I try every pastry out there. I am already gaining weight. That's why I've started going to the local pool. I refuse to stop eating so much because it's soooooo good. Thursday the pool was closed so I went to my sisters' karate practice instead. That's was interesting. School is pretty terrible, I won't lie. It's ten hours long every day. Sometimes I luck out and have 2 hours for lunch but that's only because I don't take a fourth language because they've all taken it for several years and I wouldn't be able to follow anything. They're all amazed I only speak english and that I've only studied French. It's pretty sad. The French culture is very cold to new people and it doesn't help that I am attending a private Catholic school. So for the first two weeks or more it was just me and this other american exchange student. Everyone stared at us like we were animals, but wouldn't talk to us. It's getting better, but everytime I make friends I find out something bad about them. The French LOVE gossiping. Disprite how terrible school is, I'm loving it here. I don't understand much, but I walk around in an ignorant bubble. Happy as a clam. My french is improving, but really really slowly. I want it to speed up! This next month I think I'm going to try harder to improve. I don't think I can ever thank you enough for giving me this oportunity! best wishes and salut! bonne nuit! Wei Li

Lapeer Community Schools will celebrate the completion of construction on the second of its two new middle schools at a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house at 6 p.m. August 12 at Zemmer Middle School, 1920 W. Oregon, Lapeer. Lapeer voters approved a $56.7 million bond issue in 2007, a portion of which financed the renovation of the former Zemmer Junior High School into a new middle school. Construction of the new Rolland-Warner Middle School was completed last fall, expanding the facilities at the former Woodside School. This fall will mark the first time the two new schools will house 6th, 7th and 8th grade students with new, innovative middle school programs. "We are extremely happy to be able to open these new facilities," said Debbie Thompson, Lapeer Community Schools Superintendent. "Wired from top to bottom for today's technology and the technology of the future, these two campuses are ready to serve the students of Lapeer for generations."

Though it is said that some of Kiwanis Members played on the Rotary Team. After the game, as we were all sharing good food and good conversation, a rainbow filled the sky above the ball field, just as if to say "we are all winners where it counts".
