28 Wednesday, Nov. 10, 2010 Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter VITAL STA,TISTI CS OBITUARIES Bertha I. Wright Bertha left her worldly body on Nov. 2, 2010, at Good Samaritan Society located in Prescott, Arizona. She will now be reunited with her hus- band and two sons in heaven. Bertha retired from Yava- pal Community Hospital in 1982 as the Director of House- keeping and Grounds, a posi- tion she held from 1972 to 1982. A Celebration of Bertha's Life will take place 11 a.m. Friday, Nov. 12, at the Greenville Southern Baptist Church. She was born Oct. 16, 1917, to a family of three boys and four girls. As a young girl, she tap-danced with her brother George for five years and it was one of Bertha's fondest childhood memories. She was married to James Wright on Nov. 9, 1935, and the union was blessed with four children: James, Carol Jean, Dennie and Debbie. She has nine grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandson. Some of her favorite things to do included reading books, listening to Western music and doing jigsaw puzzles. Bertha felt her greatest ac- complishment in her life was raising her four children fol- lowed by a successful career later in life to become the Di- rector of Housekeeping and Grounds for Yavapai Commu- nity Hospital. Thank you so much to the kind and loving staff at Good Samaritan Society for all the love and support they gave to Bertha and her family.

The senior officer at the Portola substation said the most money stolen in a sin- gle incident during the rash of break-ins was per- plexingly small: $10 in quarters. "Its almost like they're breaking in just for the fun of it," he commented. There were some in- stances when the culprits left pry marks on a door, but seemed to give up on ef- forts to make entry -- even though they seemed to be on the brink of success. Cline reported the largest haul consisted mostly of cigarettes and alcohol and indicated security cameras got footage of suspects in two incidents. There was one suspect on one tape and two on anoth- er, with no obvious connec- tion between the two events or sets of suspects. Cline said no arrests had been made and the investi- gation was still ongoing, but the trend seemed to have died off. The sergeant said many of the crimes happened in small clusters and the per- petrators seemed to be striking at times and loca- tions when they knew offi- cers were less likely to be around. He advised the best pro- tection against losing prop- erty in a burglary, particu- larly for businesses, was to get an alarm system that would scare away the crim- inals and bring a swift law- enforcement reaction. At least with a security system, Cline said, the damage was usually limit- ed to the point of entry, a broken window or door- frame. Images taken from one of the videos were not in a for- mat usable for newsprint. However Cline said the sheriff's office was consid- ering posting fliers with the images and other infor- mation in public places if current leads dried up. eoot MONUMENTS BENCHES nument ESTABLISHED 1929 SIGNS BORDERS ADDRESS STONES GRANITE MARBLE NATURAL STONE 110PACIFIC STREET P.O.

In September, four teenagers committed suicide across the United States as a result of cyber-related harassment. These deaths have put the spotlight on the growing problem of cyberbullying. The reality is cyberbullying and other social media risks are an epidemic in this country and the death rate is climbing. Earlier this year, police and school officials Indicated 15 -year old Phoebe Prince committed suicide after she was bul- lied on Facebook and in text messages. The result is a child is dead arid nine students, including three juveniles, face charges for her death. Last month, a Rutgers University student committed suicide after his sexual activities were broad- cast across the internet. The internet is incredibly powerful and ha transformed this generation of information as instantaneously available at the click of a mouse. In the 21 't Century, the Internet plays an important part of kid's lives, though the boundaries be- tween real life and virtual life are blurry. It's important to teach our kids proactively about the serious risks of social media and the long term consequences of their online behaviors. We are in the infancy stages of SOCial media risks. Disappearing are the days when the schoolyard bullies beat you up and went home. We are living in a world where bullies can reach you anywhere and anytime and where humiliation is shared at the click of a mouse to a widespread audience. Social media is incredibly powerful, and the potential outcomes can be deadly. The new generation of kids are growing up on the web and defining their own cultural rules. A recent study by the Kaiser Family the Foundation reported that kids ages 8 to 18 now spend an average of seven and a half hours a day "plugged - in" online, on the phone, or in the thrall of TV or some other electronic device. And in a random survey by Cy- berbullying Research Center, 20% of middle-school students reported that they seriously contemplated attempting suicide. While, there is a decrease of suicide rates in young people, there is an upward trend in the 10 to 19 year-old age group. In this study, the correlating factor is bullying and cyberbullying. What Can Schools Do? Schools should update their bullying and harassment policies to address 21 't Century social media risks and explicitly identify cyberbullying as an unacceptable behavior. In addition, schools should address both the behaviors that occur on school grounds and those that utilize school-owned resources. Open discussion about the issue with students and par- ents should be designed to promote awareness. What Can Parent Do? Do you know that some web sites exist for the purpose of anonymously embarrassing classmates? Did you know that students spend most of their time in social media during the hours of 2-5 p.m.? Do you know what your child is doing dur- ing the evening hours with their cell phone? Are you unknowingly facilitating their access with text and data packages on student phones? We ask that you carefully monitor internet and social media access and use consistently. Discuss openly fears and con- cerns regarding family member use of social media. Stay actively involved in all aspects of your child's life. Ensure you establish and model healthy boundaries regarding peer relationships and appropriate behaviors. Stay in touch with your child's teachers, and keep the school informed of Issues related to your child. You can find this information and more on our website at Sincerely, Glenn N. Harris, Superintendent Department of Fish and Game seeking input on conservation The Department of Fish and Game (DFG) is solicit- ing input on a proposed habitat conservation plan. DFG and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) are the lead agencies that will prepare draft environ- mental review documents for the proposed Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) Multi- ple-region Operations and Maintenance Habitat Con- servation Plan (HCP). The HCP area covers PG&E facilities in 36 Cali- fornia counties. Officials in- vite the public to hear more about the project and offer development suggestions Wednesday, Nov. 17, 1 - 3 p.m. at the South Natomas Community Center Confer- ence Room, 2921 Truxel Road, in Sacramento. Comments and sugges- tions will be incorporated into a draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR)/ Envi- ronmental Impact State- ment (EIS) to be prepared in the coming months, in ac- cordance with the Califor- nia Environmental Quality Act and the National Envi- ronmental Policy Act. The original notice of preparation and notice of in- tent for the project were filed by DFG and USFWS in November 2008. Since that time, PG&E has added its Mojave Region gas trans- mission facilities to the HCP and made changes to the No- vember 2008 list of covered species. The revised and original NOPs may be viewed at ContextDocs.aspx?cat=PGE- OM-HCPs. Information re- garding the proposed pro- ject is also available in al- ternative formats upon re- 'quest. The EIR/EIS will address tasks associated with the op- eration, maintenance and minor new construction of PG&E's gas and electric transmission and distribu- tion system. Activities could include gas pipeline protec- tion, recoating, repair and replacement; electric line protection, repair, recon- ductoring and replacement; electric pole repair and re- placement; vegetation man- agement to maintain clear- ances around facilities; and minor construction for new gas and electric extensions.
