Sad, Stressed? Important Link To Prevent Suicide

Posted on 11 March 2015 by Monica Zech

Dear Friends,

Thank you for checking this posting.

Many of us have experienced the feeling of loss, sadness, depression, and stress…sometimes leading to thoughts of “suicide.”  The worst thing you can do is to drink alcoholic beverages – this will only make the problem seem bigger. Please click on the following link for a story about “help” available in our County.  There is “hope” – and sometimes, by having a clear-rested mind, such as good nights sleep, the problem is not as bad as it first seemed.

If you’ve had thoughts that “no one cares” – “wrong” – I care about you, and that’s why I’m posting this very important link.  There is hope…

High Speed – A Major Factor In Crashes Involving Serious Injury & Death

Posted on 23 December 2014 by Monica Zech

I’ve started this page to add articles in which the danger of “speed” plays a major role in a collision involving death and injury on our roadways.

I start with a collision just a couple of days before Christmas that will impact a large number of families:

Four Teens Die in Fiery Head-on Pa. Crash

State troopers in Carbon County said Saturday afternoon that the four were in a sedan heading west on Dairy Road in Lower Towamensing Township that collided with an eastbound car shortly before 8:30 p.m. Friday.

Police said both vehicles overturned and caught fire, while the car carrying the teens smashed into a tree and was ripped in half.

Police said the driver — listed by police as 17 but said by the coroner’s office to be 19 — was killed along with two 16-year-old boys and a 13-year-old girl. An 18-year-old female and a 22-year-old man were hospitalized.

Alcohol Is Not Only A Drug That Impairs, It Gives You An “I Don’t Care Attitude”

Posted on 24 November 2013 by Monica Zech

From what I’ve seen, when it comes to those who drink alcohol and then drive – DUI drivers often have an “I don’t care attitude.”

This following news story is a prime example of that, proving my point.

Here’s a link to the story.
