DEATH * BY * METH

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.

Fundraiser to benefit Mothers Against Meth (Kansas)

By Jean Plummer ‘Potpourri'

I want to once again thank Krystal Wallace and the Mothers Against Meth (MAMA's) group for their intense efforts to protect our young people and others from the destruction of the use of methamphetemines. Their educational efforts cost money. They supply booklets and other material, but give their time, gas money, etc., to carry their message to many groups and individuals.

To raise money for the booklets and a much needed projector/dvd player, they are having a fundraiser on June 10. A band, spaghetti dinner and silent auction will bring some fun and entertainment to the evening.

The event will be held at the Hot Rod Café in El Dorado (The old El Dorado Theater). The dinner is $5 and the money will be raised from the auction.

As I talk to more and more parents who are dealing with drug addicted children, it breaks my heart that they are going through these tough times, and that they did not recognize the symptoms sooner.

I was shocked to learn about the effects of meth and the destruction it causes. Let's help this group fully inform our community about this growing problem and help them help others. It touches all socio-economic groups, and no one is immune. For a program on information, a support group, or just how you can help, call Krystal at 322-8227, or e-mail her at: newlife_75@sbcglobal.net.

Everyone messes up but there is no predicting how many times it will take for that person to finally change their life because they have had enough. When they do they need support though.. family is the most important. We should treat them with more respect than strangers off the street.
