DECEMBER 23, 2017 THE STAR PAGE 3 Mental Health Watchdog Calling for Investigation into Psychiatric Drugging of Millions of Children Currently 8 million U.S. children are being prescribed psychiatric drugs, with more than 1 million between the ages CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, December 18, 2017 /EINPresswire. com/ -The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) of Florida, watchdog dedicated to protection of children, is calling for an investigation into the heavy psychiatric drugging of children; especially foster children, in Florida. A report from the research arm of Floridas child-protection system released in 2015 showed that foster children are being put on psychotropic medications without caregivers following proper procedures and that 11 percent of the children in foster care had active prescriptions for at least one psychotropic drug. While a review showed just 20 percent of these children met all the key requirements for administering such medication. Following the tragic death of 7-year-old Gabriel Myers in 2009, who was found hanging in his foster home after having been prescribed intended for adults the Florida policies for using psychotropic drugs on foster kids were updated but this has not solved the problem. The psychiatric drugging of children is not just system. In 2011 a two-year investigation concluded that kids in Florida, Massachusetts, Michigan, prescribed psychotropic drugs at rates 2.7 to 4.5 times higher than other children in Medicaid in Currently 8 million U.S. children are being prescribed psychiatric drugs, with more than 1 million between the ages are being drugged simply because psychiatry has pathologized normal childhood behaviors, and repackaged them as result is that millions of children are being drugged As a result, CCHR is calling for an investigation into the psychiatric drugging of children in the United States. Individuals are invited to the center, located at 109 N. Fort Harrison Avenue in downtown Clearwater, to learn more about the dangers associated with psychiatric drugs as well as alternatives to medication. To learn more, please call 727-442-8820 or visit About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHRs mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. It was L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, who brought the terror of psychiatric imprisonment to the notice of the world. In March 1969, he said, Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the free world tortured, castrated, killed.

Occasionally she laughed when the other children were being silly but at playtime she kept to herself. A pleasure to have in any classroom, teachers would love to duplicate her attitude towards learning. One day during summer camp I realized that she never ate her entire lunch. She would eat the warm veggies on the side or maybe the peaches that came as a desert but the sandwich and prepackaged foods shed the side. I had seen her do this often but this day I watched her closely. Her tray was always empty when she dumped it in the trash so what did she do with the food? No wrappers were there, just the tray and empty containers from the hot foods she ate. closer attention as she took the looked around the room when it was time for her table to dump their trash. She quickly went over to her cubby, opened her book bag, and put a sandwich and orange inside. An entire week went by and I began to notice just how strategic this little young lady was. She took the longest time collecting her things from her desk at the end of the day. With any papers she needed to take home was a pop tart or breakfast bar she had saved from the morning. The teacher made it a point to leftovers. The girl would raise her hand with a number of other students and take whatever was there on the sink in the snack bowl. None of them were allowed to pick over food they knew they werent going to eat. Mrs. H reminded them often to not take it if they dont want it. The children complied. I approached Mrs. H. after she walked the third grade students to the front door for pickup. Have you noticed that lil C. always saves her food and takes it home? She nodded, said no words, but just nodded as if she was waiting to see my response. The school had rules that breakfast and lunches not eaten were supposed to be returned to the cafeteria. Our parent committee had addressed this issue with food service workers two years prior. Daily trash bags full of lunches were being thrown away and children who were hungry, denied the opportunity to eat. (Thats another story which I will share later) For safety reason food available for kids to have seconds but whatever was left still needed to be sent back. I shared with the teacher a brief reminder of how we fought food and for universal lunch. with me how she knew which students needed food in her class. To make sure the other children werent aware of it she a younger sister and she always takes food home for her as well. She also shared that every Friday the school announced a meeting called the backpack club an half an hour before school ends. I had heard this announcement but thought it to be a reading club. No, it was a group of students needed additional help with food. Weekly they were given a backpack full of food to take home that was donated by food so the students needs backpacks were returned on My heart was so pleased, I was also happy for the students. To think, a third grader strategically looking out for her family. I was outdone. I never said anything else about it but in every classroom I assisted in I made a point to follow Mrs. Hs lead. I reminded students not to take food they knew they leftovers. began hosting monthly food drives and gave away food to anyone in the neighborhood. No questions asked. The school partnered with a fresh fruits and vegetables organization that brought prepackaged food cleaned and cut in individual loved them. I often think about this little girl and how sweet she was even more so how strategic. It prompts me to never be wasteful and that others are in need.

Written by Miso Agogo, Honey in The Woods is a coloring story about a little girl who ventures into the woods against her mothers instruction. She stumbles upon a small house nestled in the trees where she meets three bears. Honey in The Woods puts an urban twist on a timeless story, Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Its a current depiction of a childs curiosity while driving literacy by introducing elements like foreign language. The book is a beautiful and coloring, vocabulary and Spanish. It touches on friendship dynamics. Like Miso, many parents, guardians, and educators children learning a second language, but equally understand, A pervasive lack of knowledge about foreign cultures and foreign languages threatens the security of the United States as well as its ability in the global marketplace to produce an informed citizenry.

WASHINGTON -Following President Trumps meeting with Republican senators to discuss the future of immigrant youth who have been thrust into legal limbo, civil rights leaders from across the country unite to call on President Trump and policymakers on both sides of the aisle to adopt inclusive immigration policies instead of racially divisive ones. The organizations issued the following joint statement: Congress has an opportunity to do something positive for the country by passing a bipartisan Dream Act by the end of this year. Doing so would allow recognized as Americans on paper, allowing them to more fully contribute to their families, communities, and the country they call home. The clock is ticking for Congress to do its job: every day, DACA recipients run the risk of losing the work authorization they need to live free from fear of deportation. other aspiring Americans. Our communities -of many faiths, backgrounds, skin colors, and languages -are stronger because of our diverse backgrounds and communities. Rather than serve to unify the country after the tragedy in New York, the president is fearmongering to We will stand in vigorous opposition to any attempt to dilute this countrys diverse richness or keep families apart. President Trumps latest call for an end to the Diversity Visa program is yet another antiimmigrant proposal grounded in white nationalism. Policymakers on both sides of the aisle should know better than to try to score cheap political points by punishing an entire class of immigrants. We will not stand for more political scapegoating of immigrants or the pitting of Muslims and immigrants eligible for the diversity visa (many of whom are from Africa and the Caribbean) against Dreamers. In times of tragedy, more than ever, our country needs us to come together. Inclusive policies Visit civilrights.org for a list of organizations that have signed on to the statement.

Jacksonville scored three minutes of the game to open two of those touchdowns coming on passes to wide receiver Jaydon Mickens, who saw an expanded role today after fellow receiver Marqise Lee hurt his ankle early on in the game. In his last three games combined, Bortles has completed throwing seven touchdowns without an interception.

When we had gotten together early, I really thought this team could be special, if we put the work in. Thats the one thing I kept telling them. So to be where we are right now, I think the people that were in that huddle when I was talking with the team are the people that truly believed that this is where we would be.

Al Lawson (FL-5) to name the United States Post Jacksonville, Florida as the Rutledge Pearson was both a trailblazer and torch bearer in this community, said Rep. Lawson. It was because of his lifelong commitment toward racial equality and human rights that opened the door for many. His legacy was born out of the hate and discrimination he faced, and used this to inspire a movement rooted in love and acceptance for all. Pearson made a lifetime commitment to the NAACP and the cause of justice. This bill serves a dual role to honor the contributions of Mr. Pearson and to remind younger generations of this civil rights champion who paved the way for the advancements we enjoy today, Rep. Lawson continued. As a young man, Rutledge Pearson had a successful baseball career with the Birmingham Black Barons of the Negro League. His talent granted him the opportunity to play major league baseball in his hometown. However, because of his race, the Jacksonville Beach Seabirds rejected the notion of having Pearson join their team. In they would rather close the baseball park than allow him to play. In 1961, Rutledge Pearson was elected President of the Jacksonville Branch of the NAACP. He was later elected President of the Florida State Conference of change Jacksonvilles cultural landscape.

Camilla Mayor Retains Ben Crump To Help Desegregate City-Owned Cemetery Mayor Rufus Davis Attorney Ben Crump By Angela Favors MorrellJoy is a special thing. The word JOY only appears in 155 verses of scripture of the word JOY does not appear until the book of First Sameul (1Sam.18:6). Now when I say JOY, I am not referring to joyousness or joyfulness or simply enjoying something; I am speaking about what the scripture calls the JOY of the LORD. This phrase is so special and life of the individual, that is only mentioned once in all of scripture. Neh 8:10 Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions to them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy to our LORD: neither be you sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength. This is why we must not take joy for granted and we must not confuse it with our own ideas of what joy is. Joy comes exclusively from the Lord and gives us strength. Joy can not be derive from simple human activity that makes us happy or makes us feel god. The joy that scripture is speaking of is much deeper. This is a joy that is not dependent on circumstances or situations. The scriptures continue to encourage us to do what is right, in spite how we may feel about it. Just consider what Jesus commands when it comes to loving our enemies. Matt 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; One may read this and say, This is impossible and you would be absolutely correct. It is impossible with us but not with God. For with God all things are possible. From this we can truly understand how special the Joy of the Lord is. It gives the believer strength to live for God. This what God did on that night over 2000 years ago. On that night, the angels declared from the heavens the birth of Jesus and God literally birthed His joy into the earth. This joy is so am amazing that the apostle Peter tells us that is a joy unspeakable and full of glory. (1Pet. 1:8). This is the joy we have, this is the joy we declare, this is the joy we sing about.

This New Years Eve, all Americans can join the descendants of the formerly enslaved in a recognition of the historic Proclamation to our countrys history and learn more about the traditions that have taken root around this celebration in the historic Low Country communities that now comprise the Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor. These Watch Night and Emancipation Proclamation events will take place Sunday, December 31, 2017 and/or Monday, January 1, 2018 at local churches and other historic sites like Magnolia Plantation. Members of the public are invited to attend and a list of local participating sites can be found by city on the Commissions website at www.gullahgeecheecorridor.org. The Watch Night services will generally begin late in the evening on December 31, 2017. The experience in the hours leading up to midnight will vary based on custom and practice in each Gullah Geechee community but tradition holds that these services usually involve music, the traditional liturgy and contemplation of what has passed followed by reconciliation and resolutions for the coming year. Though Watch Night has continued to be observed in one form or another in the Low Country (and across the United States), it would appear that its original, historic tie to the Emancipation Proclamation has been largely lost and the Commission has launched this initiative to restore awareness of this important connection. Reverend Edward Alston, pastor at Queens Chapel Church on Hilton Head Island, grew up attending Watch Night Services in Beaufort, SC and always knew its origins. Since becoming a pastor, I realized that for the current generation, the younger folk as well as the elder, not everyone knew about the connection between Watch Night and the Emancipation Proclamation. What I do is give a brief history of it, both verbally and during the service and in written form, stating the altogether, so that they can carry it away. He makes a point, also, during the service to read a passage from the Bible in Gullah. The Watchmen, elders in the community, will signal when midnight is near. At that time, the community will kneel in prayer or contemplation to welcome the New Year 1, 1863 the New Year also meant a longhoped for freedom for millions of AfricanAmericans in the United States. Gullah Geechee people, who have been a part of or have long memories of these traditional celebrations within their communities over the years, will educate others about the occurred on these days.

For INSIDER, its the lifeguard chairs. Florida heat means decorating lifeguard chairs instead of trees Volunteers decorate the iconic red lifeguard chairs of the American Red Cross with elaborate holiday lights displays, combining the spirit of the holidays with the balmy warm weather of the Sunshine State. Executive Director Kurtis Loftus shares, Unsolicited recognition from a national media outlet is very exciting. Our board, committees, sponsors, friends, and volunteers worked hard to make this a special exhibit. Kurtis adds, well as the Volunteer Life Saving Corps of Jacksonville Beach, and we all hope for its continued success. Visit deckthechairs.org to learn more.
