Special-needs kids learn to avoid harmful drugs in unique program



2018-04-16T12:53:15+0000

Launched in March in partnership with Columbus City Schools, Stop to Live is being touted as the first in the United States to address substance-abuse prevention for special-needs children. Special-needs people are more at risk for substance abuse but are often overlooked when it comes to prevention strategies.

Dr. Maria Demosthenous was excited about the ornate round box she held in front of 11-year-old Xavier Desotelle. As the Columbus boy looked up at her from an examination table, she told him that the blue box with orange pompom fringe held something

Still not that warm I'd rather be sweating then this crap, give me 70s not 50 and 60s

The weather channel is calling for 70° on Monday in Akron and I must say they’re a lot more accurate

Ill be happy when I can put the pool up!

Still below normal almost every day :(

I need to move further south.....

Finally a good forecast, yay!!!

Now, that was a tough one. We’re talking Cavs and much more with Lou Maglio Fox 8 News and Tracy McCool ahead of FOX 8 News at 10. ...

It was a tough one because Lue sucks! He has to go. Out-coached again. Rotation is completely horrible. Doesn't know how to make adjustments. He has to go and has probably pushed LeBron right out the door. A first round loss and there is no chance of him coming back!

Leflop James just don’t have what it takes to lead a team to a ring without 2-3-4 other all stars to help him.

I think they should have played Tristian rebounds and he’s still a champion has Tye Lue forgot!

Doesn’t matter. Ball 🏀 doesn’t go in net not coaches problem

It's not over until the 4th win has been won. Any of you "so called Cavs fans" say it's over, then don't comment on any Cavs page. I am not happy about the loss myself, but I will not give up on this team. If you "Cavs fans" give up because we aren't playing well & had a difficult year then don't watch the Cavs anymore.

Ty Lue is complete garbage! He's embarrassing us!

Coach needs to get TT back in the game !!

Tristen should of been put ib

Ty Lue is trash

Next year

Hello

We have to play all four quarters ..and why didn’t coach Lue put Kover back in the forth quarter?

I said before playoffs Cavs would not make it out first round unfortunately it's probably going to be true ..

I love watching you all! I hope they pull it together as a team.

They won with the coach out🧐 Lebron did have help in first half everyone has to play defense including Lebron

We will get out of the first round

Nede Griffith from Ashtabula Ohio

Where were Korvers touches?

Did the cavs win tonight

LeRon has no support....

We will be ok.

Love ya guys &gals

What's up Lloyd

Embarrassment

Shameful

Kings Island

What's the most fun thing to do on a Friday night? Visit Kings Island of course! We're open tonight from 5-10 p.m. And while you're here, take a ride on Mystic Timbers, voted "Best New Ride" in 2017 by Amusement Today. ...

 

Comment on Facebook

I am so looking forward to my first official visit tonight!!!!

Are all the rides open today and tomorrow?

Early rides for gold pass tonight?

What planet snoopy rides are included in gold pass holder early rides tonight Kings Island?

We'll be renewing our passes this weekend but first I'm wanting to know something. In the past, we've renewed our passes a few days before park opening so we didn't have to pay for parking since it wasn't open yet. My question for you is when we show up this weekend, will we get reimbursed for our parking the day we get our passes renewed if we will renew them the day of visit or will we get a credit on the pass(s)? I'm planning on going tomorrow morning. Thank you!!

Want to go while in area in May but car troubles may dampen some of our plans. Gotta stay on budget. Will for sure get some outside park pics. Hotel is just down the street. Get a few rides on M.T for me K.I fans for me just in case.

We'll be there Sunday!! And the weather looks perfect!

Beast night ride before bed sounds fabulous to me!

Once on Delirium was enough for me !

I'm going in june

Be there tomorrow

brrrrr!

Cory Byrd wanna go tonight? Lol

Ryan Kaufmann let’s go lol

This investigation shows that the demand for sex trafficking is still being fueled by people looking to purchase sex through online sites. My office and our partners in law enforcement will continue to aggressively monitor websites and applications where sex is being marketed and intend to hold those buying and selling sex - and the websites that host sex-trafficking ads - accountable.

Here's a thought.. legalize and regulate prostitution..

They all have mustaches!

People never learn go after the promoters the web sites problem solved till they figure out another way.

These guys all look the part.

I know of many prostitutes that you've been with and some of them are way under age

Kings Island

Diamondback opened on this day in 2009. Who wants to ride the tallest and fastest roller coaster at Kings Island? ...

 

Comment on Facebook

Only if harnesses are added for this ride would i ride again

I have never been on it but I really want to...the long lines were discouraging 😂

Nothing better than a classic wooden coaster

Holy Crap it’s seriously been since 2009?

Just waiting for the day you guys add the giga coaster we all want

I totally agree with you. I actually almost fell out a few years ago. Never again.

Boooo. Its the Magnum with an extra hill and bank....

Harnesses? Are you a horse? It’s just fine the way it is!

Shay Dehart you wanna go ride this with me? I've been dying to ride it forever!

I was #69 in the first rider auction.

My all time favorite roller coaster ❤️

its probably my favorite. Buckle up tight and let your grip go! The zero gravity hills are awesome.

I still don’t understand how you made me ride this Shelby Lynn Wright

I waited in that massive line on that day. Well worth it. 👍

Sydne Horton yas I need to go to kings island

I want to but there are complications.

Anne Schutz one of my Favorite rides at kings island!

This is Just like the Goliath at Six Flags over Georgia! Great ride hate it has no loops

Love Love Love one of my favorites, can't wait to be back. We always go to Diamonback 1st thing when we get to the park!!!

Brian Stacy I dont think I have ridden it since we did when it first opened lol.

Caitlin Belcher did you know the diamond back was fairly new when we went?

9 years old?? Wow. I never would have guessed that.

Hell yeah I'm going to ride it

It's a great ride

Hannah this is one of the rides 😺

Below is a statement from Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine on the death of former First Lady Barbara Bush:

"Fran and I were sad to learn of the death of former First Lady Barbara Bush. We join with our fellow Ohioans in sending our sympathy and love to former President George H.W. Bush, and the entire Bush family.

"Barbara Bush was an American original who was devoted to her country, family, and friends, and encouraged all Americans to serve others.

"Fran and I were great admirers of Mrs. Bush, and we were very fortunate to have her as a guest at our Cedarville home in May of 1992 for a fundraising event. It was a beautiful day, and we have a treasured picture from that day of her and our family where Mrs. Bush is holding our youngest daughter, Anna, who was only three-weeks-old.

"Barbara Bush also graciously shared her recipe for Oatmeal Lace Cookies with Fran after she had them at a White House tea. Fran included Mrs. Bush’s recipe in the eighth edition of her DeWine Family Favorites cookbook.

"Today America has lost a treasured former First Lady. Fran and I join our fellow Ohioans and Americans in mourning the loss of a remarkable person – First Lady Barbara Bush."

A beautiful lady and exelant

Thank you Mr Dewine for your kind and fitting tribute to Barabara Bush a true reflection of American elegance 💞

When we lived at Andrews AFB I took my kids to the flight line to watch her return from various trips.Barbara Bush was a great,feisty,non-plastic political wife.

A lady is exactly what she was! She will be missed’

Condolences.

You will never be reelected to any government office in Ohio do you understand you should just kill yourself and do the world a favor
