This is dedicated to Travis Holappa who was kidnapped, tortured and murdered on July 25, 2004 in Northern Minnesota. This was all due to meth. I am Travis' mother and I wish to make this devastation turn into a better thing by educating and exposing the truth about meth, the dangers, and the deadly consequences it brings about to individuals and communities.

I want to do what I can to educate people about what is going on around the world with the meth problem. I want people to know about it BEFORE they even get the idea to want to try it. It is a dangerous drug and will ruin your life as well as all those who love you. I am on a mission on behalf of my only son, Travis.

Supervisors get snapshot of fight against meth (California)

By ROGER H. AYLWORTH/MediaNews Group

Butte County has the uncomfortable distinction of being at the front line in a battle with a modern scourge, and Tuesday the Board of Supervisors got a snapshot look at how the fight is going.
During the regular board meeting, Butte County Sheriff Perry Reniff, along with Keith Krampitz, commander of the south county narcotics task force, reported on the activity of the "Methamphetamine Strike Force."

The strike force is an unusual coalition of law enforcement, education, public health agencies, and public and private social services agencies, joining forces to "eliminate methamphetamine here in Butte County," said Reniff.

Reniff said it is difficult to quantify the total impact of meth on the county, but some numbers are easy. According to his figures, in 2004, 27 percent of the bookings in Butte County Jail were "for production, possession or (being) under the influence of methamphetamine."
