"With more youth dying from suicide in some southeastern Wisconsin Counties, some are calling out this public health crisis as the numbers have increased, according to a story by Fox 6.
"From 2009 through 2014, 71 children have committed suicide in
Milwaukee, Racine, Kenosha, and Waukesha counties. Some of those kids
were as young as 11 years-old. A dozen of those youth were from Racine
County. This year, seven southeastern Wisconsin youth have already
killed themselves and among them is Cameron Langrell, a Caledonia teen who killed himself this year. "Of those who died, many had been sexually assaulted, had problems
with their boyfriend or girlfriend, had trouble at school or struggled
with their sexuality. According to the story, for every one person that
is successful in committing suicide, there are 11 people who have
attempted. "Read more on Fox 6. "Looking for mental health resources, check out the Racine County Human Services Department mental health page."
"Racine County ranks fifth in the state for the number of people that have chlamydia, and it ranks fourth highest in the state for gonorrhea.
In the city, one out of 100 residents contracted an STD in 2014. Young
adults ages 21 to 29 years-old consistently ranked high in having STDs. “'Stopping the spread of STDs is our number one priority,' said
Dottie-Kay Bowersox, public health administrator for the City of Racine
Health Department. 'Getting people tested and treated before passing a
disease on to a partner is a proven approach to reducing the burden of
STDs and keeping our community healthy.' "The goal of the campaign is to increase the use of the Racine Health
Department STD clinic by 10 percent, and to prevent and stop the spread
of STDs, according to a press release by the Racine Health Department."
Hello, my butterflies!How are you?Keeping cool? I was
talking with a friend the other day and we both agreed that this has, so far,
been a normal summer for us.We do need
rain, but we’re not at drought levels, yet.It’s been pretty hot a few times,
but nothing abnormal.Let’s hope that
next winter is the same.Cold, but not
arctic cold.Of course, ever since
Mother Nature went insane, nothing is for sure.She’s off her meds and on the prowl.I also think that she likes to make meteorologists look bad by not
following their predictions.She’s such
And speaking of screwballs, what a bunch are running this
country?Too bad that we can’t just hit
a reset or reboot button to start all over. When did American politicians go
bad?I’ve lived a few decades, and I
don’t remember it like this.Why does a
difference of opinion now lead to hate?Maybe it’s time to add some tranquilizers to the water.And lace the booze with truth serum.Heck, I do that for breakfast.
My hero, Señor Zanza, may have saved a life the other
day.We went to Wal-Mart.(I know, but the prices are so low.)In the parking lot, Señor Zanza spotted a
young child in a locked car parked in the sun.Windows rolled up.He immediately
got the store to announce the type of vehicle and where it was parked.A sheepish-looking woman finally showed
up.He gave her a tongue-lashing.He told her we were moments from calling the
police and throwing a brick through the car glass to let in air.She agreed it was the wrong thing to do, but
she was “just going to run in and quickly get a few things.”Huh!There’s no such word as “quickly” in Walmart.
Now, Señor Baby Saver acts a little snooty.There’s talk of giving him some sort of civic
award.That scares the poopy out of the
little snooty.“He doesn’t want to
appear on TV or video of any kind.He
refuses to allow his face and/or portrait photographs of any kind to be
shown.He is adamant!And probably guilty of 40 major crimes,” said
the TV producer.
“Do you have any proof of that?” I asked the producer.
He said, “This is TV.You don’t need proof on TV.”
I can’t think of Señor Zanza, my partner for years, guilty of
any crime, I think.Yes, no, I don’t know.
You know, a scandal about him might easily spill over into my
the Señor says.“Everything
will be alright.”
And speaking of things spilling over, I have a client to
attend to later today, so I won’t be able to make it to the get-together. I
apologize.My client ha$ i$$ue$ he need$
to re$olve.I still love you all, every
Here’s a heartwarming story for us dog-lovers:
Aww, good dog.I
tried practicing what Mr. OrbsCorbs said about rubbing noses with online
pets.I didn’t get bit or anything, but
now my screen is greasy.
I hope that you enjoyed my blog this week.You know I love the company.You’re my pals!
Thanks again for stopping by.Get out and have some summer fun, but don’t
get hurt.(“Yes, mother.”)Whatever else you do, don’t forget the
sunscreen.Mr. Sun has caused a lot of
Big C in baby boomers.I told you Mother
Nature is insane.I love you all.
