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.

Meth summit’ also in talks at commissioners’ session (Colorado)

By Kate Martin
The Daily Reporter-Herald

at the commissioners’ Tuesday session:

Commissioner Kathay Rennels proposed that the county host a “meth summit,” where community leaders, business owners, members of the media, schools, parents and children get together to talk about the growing problem of methamphetamines in today’s society.

Other commissioners agreed to the idea. The summit would probably last a half-day. Instead of focusing on treating the problem, Rennels said, the summit would look at ways to prevent people, especially teens, from trying meth in the first place.

Rennels mentioned the Montana Meth Project and said, while it is a great marketing program to prevent teens from taking the drug, it might not be applicable to Larimer County or Northern Colorado. Commissioners said they would have staff draw up a budget for the summit and present it in a month or so for possible funding from the commissioners’ special projects fund.
