Inspirations
By Frances Durisseau
Love. We want it. Poems are written about it,
songs are sung about it, and romance novels fly
off the shelves. Every girl dreams about being
Cinderella hoping for the handsome prince to
find her and that the glass slipper will fit only
her. Everyone wants the real deal. But do we
really know what we are getting when we take
that magical fall into love? What happens when
you get down the road a few years and you find
out that real love gets beaten down and a little
bloody every now and then? Those beautiful glass
slippers can start rubbing you wrong and may
leave you wondering why you ever thought you
liked them in the first place. When love is real,
you find that when you are in the middle of tough
times, and the slipper has left you with a blister
or two, you can still hope, even when it seems
foolish to do so. You will know that you have the
kind of love that can forgive and that believes
in healing. It is the real kind of love. The kind
that can endure all things. The kind that can sit
in complete silence and yet feel renewed and
totally comfortable. The kind that can nurse a sick
spouse through months of an illness, that will
stand by their side through richer or poorer, that,
come what may, will be their one and only love.
I recently read a passage that said something
about every once in a while, in the middle of an
ordinary life, love comes in and gives us a fairy
tale. I am so very thankful for my fairy tale. I
think I'll go shine up my glass slippers now.

Easter lilies can keep on giving

Over the years I have become
an ardent admirer of blooming
bulbs of all types. Bulbs are easy
to plant and care for and suitable
for beds or containers. It's hard to
believe that so much beauty can
come from such humble origins.
The newest blooming bulb ad-
dition in my landscape is the Eas-
ter Lily. The source of my Easter
Lily was from a potted specimen
I received last spring — I was not
about to discard such a beautiful
plant at the end of its bloom cycle.
Lilium longiforum is the botani-
cal name for Easter Lilies and they
do not bloom during Easter under
natural growing conditions. Green-
house growers pot up the bulbs in
fall and force them into bloom for
the holiday.
Part of the challenge in produc-
ing Easter Lilies for Easter is that
the Easter Holiday does not fall
on the same day each year. Easter
is the first Sunday following a full
moon, on or after the vernal equi-
nox (March 21). Therefore, Eas-
ter Lily production schedules are
slightly different each year.
The primary method for forcing
flower production
is
known as
vernalization (a cold, moist treat-
ment to the bulb for a defined
time period). After bulbs are sub-
jected to this treatment, growth
is forced under greenhouse grow-
ing conditions.
I get questions this time of year
about the feasibility of planting
Easter Lilies
in the home
land-
scape after the holiday season is
over. You can plant your Easter
Lilies outdoors after the holiday.
Pinch off flowers as they fade but
don't cut the foliage.
Indeed, after the last flower has
withered and has been cut away,
a potted Easter Lily can then be
planted in the landscape. Do not
remove the green foliage as it is
needed to help re-invigorate the
bulb for next year's flower.
Prepare a well-drained garden
bed in a sunny location amended
with organic matter such as com-
post. Good drainage
is a major
key for success with lilies.
To ensure adequate drainage,
create a raised garden bed by mov-
ing soil to the top a few inches
higher than the surrounding soil
level. Plant the Easter Lily bulbs
6 inches deep from the base of the
bulb to the top of the mulched
surface, assuming at least a 2-inch
layer of mulch.
Plant bulbs 4-to-6 inches apart.
The planting hole should be wide
enough so the roots can be eas-
ily spread out. Work the soil in
around the roots, and water them
immediately after planting.
Easter Lilies like their "feet in
the shade and their heads in the
sun." Mulch with a 2-inch layer
of compost or shredded pine bark.
This helps conserve moisture in
between
waterings,
suppresses
weed growth, keeps the soil cool
and provides nutrients as it decays.
As the leaves and stems of the
original
plants
begin
to
turn
brown and die back, cut
them
back just above a healthy leaf on
the
stem. Wait until
the
leaves
and stems have turned brown be-
fore removing them. New growth
will soon emerge. It
is unlikely
that a second flowering will occur
later in the summer. Easter Lilies,
which were forced to flower under
controlled greenhouse conditions,
will flower naturally
in June or
July the following and subsequent
years and will reach a height of 3
feet or more.
During
the
winter
months,
maintain
a
generous
layer
of
mulch.
Carefully
remove
the
mulch
in
the
spring
to
allow
new shoots to come up. Apply a
slow-release fertilizer during the
growing season when new shoots
emerge in the spring. Apply the
fertilizer to the soil around each
plant about 2
inches
from
the
stem and water it in.
I can report that I practice what
I preach. There are now six Eas-
ter Lilies in my landscape that I
planted last spring from a potted
specimen.
While
all
six
plants
have multiple
flower buds,
the
most robust Easter Lily plant has
12
flower buds
(yes, I counted
them) and I expect them to open
within the next couple of weeks.
While it's wonderful to see these
beautiful flowers adorning the in-
teriors of homes and churches this
time of the year, it is also nice to
know that they can become long-
lived,
reliable
spring
flowering
bulbs for Gulf Coast landscapes.

Q:
Why does
the
sky
sometimes look green dur-
ing a thunderstorm?
A: It's a question that
has been asked
for cen-
turies
and
is
still
not
fully answered, says Brent
McRoberts of Texas A&M
University. "We know the
ancient Greeks
reported
seeing
green
skies
dur-
ing
thunderstorms,
and
sailors
for
hundreds
of
years have written about
green
skies,"
McRoberts
explains. "The most pop-
ular theory is that thun-
derstorms contain a lot of
water – often in the form
of hail – and this water or
ice tends to scatter green
light
during
the
strong
updrafts
that
occur
in
severe storms. That's why
many people say the sky
appears green right before
a hailstorm."
Q:
Does
the
sky
look
green during a tornado?
A: It can, says McRoberts, but
not always so. "Often the sky
appears almost black during a
tornado, but sometimes there
are greenish-looking tints to the
clouds," he adds. "Many torna-
does have hail right around
them. What we do know for
sure is that green skies do exist,
but they are fairly rare. They
may or may not contain
a tornado, and they may
or may not contain hail.
We do know that they are
almost always an indicator
of severe weather, often very
dangerous weather, so if you
see a thunderstorm approach-
ing and the sky appears to look
green, you should take cover
immediately."

Over the past several years our city it was
apparent that there has been an upsurge in
(of all things) the theft of copper tubing and
wire especially from air conditioning units.
This trend has not only hit the City of La
Marque but throughout Galveston County,
all
over Texas, and nationally.
Outside
central air conditioning units are the target
of criminals.
The culprits are basically dismantling
the units and removing the copper com-
ponents and of course selling such to scrap
metal yards. Victims are then saddled with
replacing the entire A/C unit which may
range
from $8,000 up!
It
appears
that
most A/C units are those located at vacant
rental and/or residential houses and small-
medium
sized
business
locations.
The
thieves are not keen on messing with units
that sit outside of residences that are occu-
pied. Unquestionably our department has
followed-up on all leads to solve such cases;
however, unlike the typical police televi-
sion show we must admit we cannot solve
our cases in 60 minutes or less. We need
the assistance of our community to prevent
such thefts, to identify and finally report
such perpetrators to our agency.
Obviously most thefts occur during the
hours of darkness. Some key preventive
measures include:
1) remove landscaping or other obstructions
from around your A/C unit. (Although the
idea of hiding your unit sounds good this can
also hide the thief from view.);
2) illuminate the A/C unit. (thieves prefer to
operate in the dark.);
3)
install
“one
way”
or
tamper
resistant
screws to the exterior of your A/C unit;
4) engrave the address or business/non-profit
organization’s name on various sections of
the copper tubing;
5) install an A/C unit alarm system; and
6) invest in a theft prevention cage (contact
your A/C service for
info on this cage—
which I consider the most effective but the
most costly).
Finally, assist us in identifying, arrest-
ing,
and prosecuting
these
criminals
that make our lives miserable: call
“La
Marque
Crimestoppers”
at
938-TIPS
(8477) and provide us
info on who
is
stealing copper and similar metals from
our air conditioner units.
We do not
wish to know the caller’s name and you
may receive a reward up to $5,000 cash
for this civic work.
Final outcome: The sweltering heat of sum-
mer
is
approaching: you certainly do not
need to
lose your air conditioner when it
could have been prevented by a simple yet
effective measure.
Advice: Consider applying one or more of
the above mentioned tips to safeguard your
air conditioning unit.
AUSTIN

President
Barack Obama and
former
Presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill
Clinton and George W. Bush
spoke at the Lyndon Baines
Johnson Presidential Library’s
Civil
Rights Summit, held
April 8-10 in Austin.
The summit marked the
50th anniversary of President
Johnson’s
efforts
culminat-
ing in Congress’ passage of
the Civil Rights Act of 1964
and
Johnson’s
signing
the
bill into law on July 2, 1964.
“ As
we commemorate the
50th anniversary of the Civil
Rights
Act,
we honor
the
men and women who made
it possible, ” President Obama
said in his address. “We recall
the
countless
unheralded
Americans, black and white,
students and scholars, preach-
ers
and housekeepers whose
names are etched not on mon-
uments, but in the hearts of
their loved ones and in the fab-
ric of the country they helped
to change. But we also gather
here deep in the heart of the
state
that
shaped
(President
Johnson), to recall one giant
man ’s
remarkable efforts
to
make real the promise of our
founding:
‘We
hold
these
truths to be self-evident, that
all men are created equal.
’ ”
Obama and the past presi-
dents
each
uttered
words
to
the
effect
that
while
Johnson’s
accomplishments
serve
as
durable
bridges
to a better America, every
generation has civil
rights
challenges that must be rec-
ognized and addressed, and
the
value of
teaching and
learning about the work of
predecessors is critical to the
health of the nation.
Panels composed of histori-
ans, scholars, current and for-
mer public officials and noted
personalities addressed a range
of topics, including: LBJ and
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.,
heroes of the civil rights move-
ment, social justice in the 21st
century,
immigration policy,
education,
gay
marriage,
music and social consciousness
and professional sports.
Presidential historian Doris
Kearns Goodwin said, and
others agreed, LBJ’s mastery
of the legislative process and
effective
use of
the power
of the White House proved
keys
to
the
success of
the
civil rights
law,
the voting
rights law, the fair housing
law, Medicaid, Medicare and
other laws and federal pro-
grams that have been the leg-
acy of the Johnson presiden-
cy and central to American
life over the last half century.
In their panel discussion,
former
NAACP President
Julian Bond, U.S. Rep. John
Lewis, D-Ga., and
former
Ambassador
to
the United
Nations Andrew Young —
associates
of
Dr.
Martin
Luther King Jr. — recounted
their personal involvement in
the movement. Each of the
three credited many others
and acknowledged the work
of the ranks of the unnamed
who struggled in the 1950s
and 1960s to unravel racial
segregation across the South,
and pushed for equal protec-
tion and equal access, while
generating worldwide aware-
ness and spurring changes in
hearts and minds across the
United States.
Hall of fame professional
athletes Jim Brown and Bill
Russell traded anecdotes on
breaking
the
color
line
in
sports,
opening doors after
their
retirement as players,
and dealing with the day-to-
day realities of life in America.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
musicians Mavis Staples and
Graham Nash performed songs
and participated as panelists.

March was $2.09 billion,
up 5.6 percent compared to
March of the previous year.
“The growth in sales tax
revenues was led by business
spending in the oil and nat-
ural
gas
mining, wholesale
trade and construction
sec-
tors,” Texas chief revenue offi-
cer
explained.
“Collections
from
restaurants were also
strong. This marks 48 con-
secutive months of growth in
state sales tax collections. ”
Combs
said
her
office
would send cities, counties,
transit
systems and
special
purpose taxing districts their
April local sales tax alloca-
tions
totaling
$554.5 mil-
lion,
up 6.2 percent com-
pared to April 2013.
Tips on preventing
air conditioner thefts
Unless you’ve been vaca-
tioning on a tropical island
for
the
past
few
days,
you’ve
likely
heard of
the
“Heartbleed”
bug, a com-
puter
security
vulnerability
that can reveal the contents
of
a
server’s
memory and
expose private data such as
user names, passwords and
even credit card information.
The Heartbleed bug exploits
a flaw in the Secure Sockets
Layer
(SSL)
of
popular
open source software called
OpenSSL. SSL is the stan-
dard
security
technology
that establishes an encrypted
link
between
a
user’s
web
browser and the server where
a website is hosted. It is used
to
secure numerous kinds
of data transfers,
including
email,
instant
messaging,
social
media, and business
transactions.
Encryption
is
essential to Internet security.
The
flaw,
discovered on
April
7
but apparently
in
existence
for
two
years,
means
that
attackers
can
copy a server’s digital keys
and use them to impersonate
servers to decode communi-
cations from the past (and,
potentially, the future).
For businesses:
The Houston BBB
rec-
ommends
that
businesses
immediately check to see if
their
website(s)
use
Open
SSL or have been vulnerable.
One way to check, recom-
mended by tech/media web-
site CNET, is a tool (http://
f i l ippo.io/Heartbleed/)
developed by a cryptography
consultant.
If
vulnerabil-
ity exists, businesses should
work with their IT depart-
ment or
computer profes-
sional to install a more secure
SSL on their websites.
For systems administrators:
Systems
administrators
should follow the advice of
US-CERT
(http://www.
us-cert.gov/ncas/a lerts/
TA14-098A) , the Computer
Emergency Response Team.
Although
this
information
comes
from
the U.S. gov-
ernment, it is applicable to
systems in other countries.
For consumers:
CNET has also published a
list of the top 100 websites,
which it is updating regular-
ly as it checks for vulnerabili-
ties and repairs. Consumers
can check this list or use the
tool mentioned above to see
if websites they regularly use
are free of problems, or have
fixed vulnerabilities.
It’s
also
imperative
that
consumers change passwords
on all sites, particularly those
that retain personal
identi-
fying
information. Change
your password after confirm-
ing that the site is not vulner-
able or has fixed its SSL.
The
“Stop.
Think.
Connect.” campaign offers
the
following
suggestions
to protect your identity:
• Secure your accounts: Ask for
protection beyond passwords.
Many account providers now
offer additional ways for you
verify who you are before you
conduct business on that site.

Make passwords
long and
strong: Combine capital and
lowercase letters with numbers
and symbols to create a more
secure password.

Unique
account,
unique
password: Separate passwords
for
every
account
helps
to
thwart cybercriminals.

Write it down and keep it
safe:
Everyone
can
forget
a
password. Keep
a
list
that’s
stored in a safe, secure place
away from your computer.

Own your online presence:
When available, set the pri-
vacy and security settings on
websites to your comfort level
for information sharing. It’s ok
to limit how and with whom
you share information.
BBB also suggests choosing
passwords that are phrases (for
instance, ilovetofish) and mak-
ing each letter O into a zero
to make the password more
complex. Look into password
management software to help
you keep track of really “long
and strong” passwords.
BBB’s
servers
do not
use Open Source SSL. All
of
its websites have been
checked and found to be
free of vulnerabilities.

Tis ‘n Tat by Nicky De Lange
In last week's column, I
shared some of my favorite
cruise tips. Today I'll try to
finish this subject before it
becomes a mini-series.
One of my favorite tricks
for traveling light, whether
by sea or by land, is tak-
ing
mini-sized
contain-
ers of cosmetics and other
personal
care
items.
For
example, if you're a regular
user of a particular brand
of makeup, check wherever
you buy it to see if there are
any sample sizes available.
My
favorite perfume

the
real
thing,
not
the
“smells just like” kind – is
available periodically
in a
purse-sized spray bottle. I
love this because not only
is it nice and compact, but
because
if
anything hap-
pens to it, I don't have an
entire piece of luggage that
smells like Obsession.
I always check out mini-
sizes
in
drugstores
for
mouthwash,
toothpaste,
deodorants, shampoos etc.
And
I've
learned
to pack
these items in a pair of zip-
closing plastic bags. If any-
thing leaks or breaks, the
damage will be minimal.
Now
that airline
secu-
rity is much stricter, I only
take essential make-up and
personal care items in my
carry-on, always
in a see-
through plastic bag if the
contents are liquid.
My favorite piece of lug-
gage is a sturdy carry-on
shoulder
bag
purchased
from
a
national
chain
department store. I spot-
ted it while in line to buy
a suitcase for my husband.
It was on a nearby coun-
ter,
marked down
from
$40 to $20.
It's one of the best things
I ever bought for travel. It
has lots of inside and outside
compartments,
a
removable
see-through
hang-up
con-
tainer
for makeup and
fits
under the seat of every airline
I've taken it on. In a pinch I
honestly believe I could get
three days' worth of necessi-
ties, including casual clothes,
into it if necessary.
Now for a couple of tips
for making any cruise easier
and getting more fun time
on it. You have to check this
with the cruise
line you'll
be traveling on, but so far
I've found that if the ship is
sailing around 5 p.m., you
will be able to board around
11 a.m.- noon. You'll have
already checked your
lug-
gage
except
for
a
carry-
on bag, and this first day
counts as one entire day of
your cruise.
So
get
aboard ASAP,
even though you won't be
able
to go
to your cabin
until around 1 p.m. You
can use this time to go get
lunch (which is included in
your trip), check out where
everything is on board (the
spa, pools, gym or what-
ever), and then it's time to
go to your cabin.
Your luggage may or may
not be there. Usually ours
has arrived by mid-after-
noon. And that's where this
tip
comes
in:
put
every-
thing you
really
need
in
your carry-on bag
(medi-
cations,
make-up,
swim-
suit,
a
paperback,
etc.
Then
after
you've
eaten
and explored, you can put
on that bathing suit, grab
your
sunblock, book and
sunglasses and go
lay out
by one of the pools.
It's time to chill out and
start enjoying yourself . . .
A very happy Pesach to
those
celebrating
Passover,
and a very happy Easter to
those celebrating this holiday!

UTMB first hospital in Texas to receive
Gold American Heart Association Award
GALVESTON

The
University of Texas Medical
Branch at Galveston
is
the
first
hospital
in Texas*
to
receive
the
Get With The
Guidelines — Resuscitation
Gold Quality Achievement
Award
from
the
American
Heart Association. The award
signifies
that
UTMB
has
reached an aggressive goal in
using guidelines-based care
to
improve
outcomes
for
patients who
suffer
cardiac
arrests in the hospital.
Last year, UTMB was
the first hospital in Texas
to
receive
the
program’s
silver award.
The
Get
With
The
Guidelines

Resuscitation
program was developed with
the goal to save lives of those
who experience cardiac arrests
through
consistently
fol-
lowing the most up-to-date
research-based
guidelines
for
treatment.
Guidelines
include
following protocols
for
patient
safety,
medical
emergency
team
response,
effective and timely cardio-
pulmonary resuscitation and
post-emergency care.
More than 200,000 adults
and children have an in-hos-
pital cardiac arrest each year,
according
to
the
American
Heart Association.
Specifically
UTMB was
awarded
for
meeting
specif-
ic measures in treating adult
and pediatric
cardiac
arrest
patients. To qualify
for
the
awards, hospitals must dem-
onstrate compliance with these
performance measures at a set
level for a designated period.
“UTMB
is
dedicat-
ed
to
helping our patients
have the best possible out-
come and implementing the
American Heart Association ’s
Get With The Guidelines —
Resuscitation program helps
us accomplish this by mak-
ing
it
easier for our teams
to
put
proven
knowledge
and guidelines to work on
a
daily
basis,”
said
Donna
Sollenberger, UTMB’s execu-
tive vice president and chief
executive officer.
“We are pleased to rec-
ognize UTMB for its com-
mitment to following these
guidelines,” said Dr. Deepak
L.
Bhatt,
national
chair-
man of the Get With The
Guidelines steering commit-
tee
and
executive
director
of interventional cardiology
programs
at
Brigham
and
Women's Hospital and pro-
fessor of medicine at Harvard
Medical School. “Shortening
the time to effective resusci-
tation and maximizing post-
resuscitation care is critical to
patient survival.”
Get With The Guidelines
— Resuscitation builds on
the work of
the American
Heart Association ’s National
Registry of Cardiopulmonary
Resuscitation
originally
launched in 1999 as a data-
base of in-hospital resuscita-
tion events from more than
500 hospitals.
Data
from
the registry and
the qual-
ity program give participat-
ing
hospitals
feedback on
their
resuscitation
practice
and patient outcomes and
help develop research-based
guidelines
for
in-hospital
resuscitation.

English
immi-
grant
architect/
builder
Sherwin and they designed
this
Italianate
style
house
for early
land speculator J.
Mayrant Smith. Smith resid-
ed there briefly before mov-
ing permanently to his plan-

of
prominent Galvestonian
John Sealy.
1875 Julius and Elizabeth

and
cotton
exporters,

Paul’s
German Presbyterian
Church, to their east. During
the 1900 storm, the Nitsche
house was severely damaged.
Lena was there alone, having
been widowed a few months

lived
there until her death
in 1914.

the
San
Jacinto
neighborhood. The

a striking, but modest struc-
ture, fitting to the means of
this young immigrant couple.
1893
Augusta
Peters
Townhouse
-
1821
Ball
(Homes Tour Debut)
On September 10 1870,
Augusta Fortmann married
Henry B. Peters in Galveston.
By 1880, she was a widow
with three young children to
support. She and her children
resided with another widow,
Ernestine Schulte, until 1893,

(Homes Tour Debut)
In 1905, Swedish immi-
grant
Charles
Theodore

ornamental side gable offset-
ting double galleries adorned
with decorative details.

Apartments, Lucas Terrace
-
1407 Broadway

ment building, Lucas Row,

the
corner
of
Broadway
and
Sixth
Street
facing
the
beach,
the
building
was
completely destroyed by the
1900 hurricane. Lucas sal-
vaged the bricks and rebuilt
on the site of his personal
residence, taking six years
to
complete
the
project.
Once

Terrace was
advertised
as
being “superior” to all other
apartments in the city.

Bidders – register with Laura Honish before the sale to receive your bidder number, the sale starts at 10:00am. If you are the winning bidder of a property at the sale today, be
sure and go to the Tax Office, see Mr. Gordon Robinson and get your Certificate of Eligibility. This is required for you to receive your Sheriff’s Deed. Please be advised that the
Minimum Bid is the past due taxes to be paid to the Galveston County Tax Office up until the date that the Order of Sale was filed, DO YOUR RESEARCH, taxes may be due
outside of taxes due at the sale, you will be responsible for paying any and all other taxes due on said property, including prior and current taxes as well.

If the winning bidder does not come in and pay by 4:00pm today, then the bid is forfeited and the Sheriff’s Office will resell the property again between the hours of 4:15pm
and 5:00pm at the Courthouse. If there is no bidder at the second sale, property is struck off to the taxing entity as Trustee.
Note: Rule 652. TRCP Purchaser failing to comply
If any person shall bid off property at any sale made by virtue of an execution, and shall fail to comply with the terms of the sale, he shall be liable to pay the plaintiff in execution
twenty per cent on the value of the property thus bid off, besides costs, to be recovered on motion, five days notice of such motion being given to such purchaser; and should the
property on a second sale bring less than the former, he shall be liable to pay to the defendant in execution all loss which he sustains thereby, to be recovered on motion as above
provided.
Payment method, cash, money order or cashier’s check made payable to Galveston County Sheriff’s Office. (Note) No personal or company checks will be accepted.
Also, you will need a separate money order / cashier’s check for $30.00 made payable to Dwight Sullivan, County Clerk for recording of the Sheriff’s Deed.
Again when bidding speak up and say your price, I do not recognize hand signals, use good bidding etiquette for your fellow bidders.
Also do your research before bidding on a piece of property!!! Last but not least (SILENCE YOUR CELL PHONES)

UNITED STATES – Is this
a mosquito? No. It's an insect
spy drone
for
urban areas,
already in production, fund-
ed by the US Government.
It can be remotely controlled
and is equipped with a cam-
era and a microphone.
The mosquito can land on
you, and
it may have the
potential
to
take a DNA
sample
or
leave
RFID
tracking
nanotechnology
on your
skin.
It
can
fly
through an open window,
or
it
can attach
to
your
clothing until you take it in
your home.
Given their propensity to
request
macro-sized drones
for surveillance, one
is
left
with little doubt that police
and military may look into
these gadgets next.
This is not
a mosquito.
Look
closely.
Incredible!!!

It is illegal, dangerous, and
irresponsible to provide
alcohol to a minor
Guest writer
Mary Beth Trevino
GALVESTON
COUNTY

April
is
Alcohol
Awareness Month and on
behalf of Galveston County
Community
Coalition,
I
want to take this opportuni-
ty to remind parents that it is
illegal, dangerous, and irre-
sponsible to provide alcohol
to a minor. All parents worry
about their children ’s health
and safety. We worry about
them doing well
in school
and
staying away
from all
sorts of dangers,
including
drugs.
Unfortunately,
too
many parents do not caution
their kids about the dangers
of alcohol. They think that
taking away the keys, giving
kids a “safe place” to drink,
or arranging for a sober drive
will make underage drinking
ok, but that’s just not true.
Drinking and driving
is
certainly a significant pub-
lic
health
issue,
but
this
is
not
the only dangerous
consequence
of
underage
drinking. Youth who drink
alcohol are at risk for get-
ting into fights, engaging in
risky
sexual behaviors
that
could
result
in
teen preg-
nancy,
being
victims
of
physical
or
sexual
assault,
and death from alcohol poi-
soning. Additionally, alco-
hol
can cause changes
in
brain development that may
have life-long consequences,
or consumption of alcohol
could
trigger
health
issues
such as diabetes or epilepsy.
Youth who
start
drinking
before the age of 15 are five
times more likely to develop
alcohol dependence or abuse
later in life than those who
wait until they are 21.
And finally, it’s important
to remember that underage
drinking is against the law.
It is illegal for youth under
21
to
possess or consume
alcohol.
Doing
so
results
in a citation for Minors in
Possession, which is a Class
C misdemeanor. Adults who
provide alcohol
to
minors
face
a
penalty as well.
In
Texas, making alcoholic bev-
erages available to a minor is
a Class A misdemeanor.
Parents, when you look at
the facts and see the poten-
tial consequences, ask your-
self: Is it worth the risk?
Sincerely,
Mary Beth Trevino

ARLINGTON,VA AND LAS
VEGAS, NV - Ann Harkins,
CEO of The National Crime
Prevention Council
(Home
to McGruff the Crime Dog®),
and Keli Wilson, AlertID’s
Founder, are teaming up to
create awareness and support
victims during Sexual Assault
Awareness Month.
According
to
government
reports, a sexual assault occurs
every two seconds in America.
Unfortunately, these incidents
are
reported
less
frequently
than any other violent crime
as only a small percentage of
brave survivors are willing to
step
forward to report their
assaults and participate in the
criminal justice process. With
more than 200,000 reported
incidents of
sexual
violence
occurring each year, the two
organizations
are
working
together in an effort to raise
awareness and to stress preven-
tion of sexual assault as well as
to support victims.
“Those who suffer sexual
assaults need to know they
are not alone and isolated,”
said Ann M. Harkins, NCPC
President and CEO. “There
are resources available to help
survivors,
and
NCPC has
resources to help people learn
how to take proactive mea-
sures to increase their person-
al safety and reduce potential
victimization. We are proud
to team with AlertID and its
platform
to
provide up-to-
the-minute information that
can help our families, friends,
and neighbors stay safe.”
For AlertID’s Founder, Keli
Wilson,
supporting victims
is
of great importance, but
she also wants to emphasize
the
importance of preven-

President Obama ’s plan for
rural America has brought
about historic
investment
and
resulted
in
stronger
rural communities. Under
the President’s
leadership,
these investments in hous-
ing,
community
facilities,
businesses
and
infrastruc-
ture have empowered rural
America to continue lead-
ing the way – strengthening
America’s
economy,
small
towns and rural communi-
ties. USDA ’s investments in
rural communities support
the rural way of
life that
stands as the backbone of
our American values.

UNITED STATES – College
and university students have
an opportunity to help design
systems for future space habi-
tats and exploration systems
through NASA's Exploration
Habitat (X-Hab) Academic
Innovation
Challenge.
Applications
for
the
fifth
annual
challenge
will
be
accepted through April 30.
The project will challenge
students to design and imple-
ment new prototype systems
that may advance exploration
capabilities. To take part in
the
X-Hab Challenge, stu-
dent teams submit their plan
for the design, manufacture,
assembly and testing of their
system. These plans will be
evaluated
by
the
agency's
Exploration
Augmentation
Module
(EAM)
team,
a
new agency activity under
the
Advanced
Exploration
Systems division of NASA's
Human
Exploration
and
Operations
Mission
Directorate
at
the
agency's
Headquarters in Washington.
The EAM
consolidated
several
existing
activities
to
fine-tune its effort to develop
prototype systems
that aug-
ment Orion's habitation and
spacewalking capabilities
for
extended deep space missions.
Orion is NASA

s next-gener-
ation spacecraft designed
to
carry astronauts beyond low-
Earth orbit, including to an
asteroid
and Mars. Orion's
first
uncrewed
test
flight,
Exploration
Flight
Test-1,
is
scheduled to
launch
later
this
year.
Previous
X-Hab
Challenge projects
included
an inflatable loft, plant growth
systems, stowage systems and
habitat
layout designs. "We
look forward to another imag-
inative group of X-Hab proj-
ects for the 2015 Challenge,"
said Lora Bailey, EAM project
manager at NASA's Johnson
Space Center in Houston.
The X-Hab Challenge is
part of a continuing effort
to
engage and
retain
stu-
dents in science, technology,
engineering and mathemat-
ics disciplines.

Workers’ severance pay can be
taxed, U.S. Supreme court rules
UNITED STATES

The
U.S. Supreme Court decid-
ed
in
favor of
the Obama
administration
in a dispute
over
taxes
on
severance
compensation,
overturning
a
lower court decision that
could have forced the IRS to
refund more than $1 billion.
The court said payments to
laid-off workers are subject to
Social Security and Medicare
taxes
under
the
Federal
Insurance
Contributions
Act, or FICA. It was a vic-
tory for the Internal Revenue
Service,
which
has
been
fighting
more
than 2,400
refund claims from compa-
nies and their ex-employees.
The
justices ’
unanimous
ruling yesterday came in the
case of Quality Stores Inc.,
once
the
country’s
largest
agricultural specialty retailer.
The defunct company fired
3,100 workers when it closed
its stores in 2001 and 2002,
paid the taxes on their sever-
ance and then asked a bank-
ruptcy judge to order the IRS
to refund $1 million.
Writing for the court, Justice
Anthony Kennedy
said
the
payments were subject to tax.
He
rejected
the
company’s
contention that what it called
supplemental unemployment
compensation
was
exempt
from the FICA.
“The severance payments
here were made to employ-
ees terminated against their
will, were varied based on job
seniority and time served and
were not linked to the receipt
of state unemployment ben-
efits,”
he
wrote.
“Under
FICA ’s
broad
definition,
these
severance
payments
constitute taxable wages.”
