Pima County Attorney Barbara LaWall Chairs
Governor Napolitano’s Statewide Arizona Methamphetamine Task Force
(Tucson, Arizona) On Wednesday and Thursday, January 10-11, 2007, Barbara LaWall,
Pima County Attorney, Chair of the Arizona Methamphetamine Task Force, and the
members of the Arizona Meth Task Force will lead more than 375 citizens and experts
from diverse backgrounds in a two-day planning summit in Mesa, Arizona to create an
effective, comprehensive statewide anti-methamphetamine plan.
The purpose of this two day hands-on working session is to provide an opportunity for
concerned citizens, methamphetamine task force and community coalition members to
come together for intensive coordinated strategic planning related to state meth issues.
This group will draft a comprehensive, effective and practical strategic action plan with
measurable outcomes and recommended action steps for implementation for dealing with
the prevention, reduction, treatment and enforcement of methamphetamine in Arizona.
The 27 member Arizona Methamphetamine Task Force has been meeting since
September 2006 to examine the problems, barriers and solutions to addressing Arizona’s
meth problem, both at the state and community levels. The Meth Task Force, comprised
of representatives from state agencies, local government, businesses and community
groups throughout Arizona (see attached list), convenes this summit to seek citizen
assistance in drafting specific recommendations to present to Governor Napolitano for
comprehensive solutions for a coordinated statewide strategy to combat this highly
addictive and devastating drug.
Pima County Attorney Barbara LaWall said, “It is a privilege and an honor to chair this
statewide task force. It’s easy to complain and point out problems and what’s wrong. It’s
far more challenging to devise solutions to a complex problem like methamphetamine.
Our ultimate goal with this two day working summit is to create practical, doable,
workable solutions for the Governor so she can best allocate limited resources and most
effectively deal with the problems this devastating and highly addictive drug has created
across Arizona. ”
“Hospital admissions due to meth use have outpaced our ability to handle them. A
significant number of criminal cases handled by law enforcement and prosecution are
now related to meth use, and our children are severely impacted by this drug. As the local
leaders in prevention, law enforcement, treatment and rehabilitation, it is the
responsibility of the Arizona Methamphetamine Task Force to identify and recommend
specific strategies and solutions to the Governor who has dedicated significant resources
to this issue, and declared her commitment to protecting the safety, health and welfare of
Arizona’s families and communities from the scourge of meth.”

Save A Life by Angie Kassabie

Save A Life by Angie Kassabie
I URGE ALL MY FRIENDS TO READ & SHARE THIS; YOU COULD SAVE A LOVED ONES LIFE BY KNOWING THIS SIMPLE INFORMATION!!! Stroke has a new indicator! They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue: During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) ...she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening. Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead. It only takes a minute to read this. A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough. >>RECOGNIZING A STROKE<< Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR. Read and Learn! Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke. Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions: S *Ask the individual to SMILE. T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (i.e. Chicken Soup) R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS. If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher. New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke. A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved. I have done my part. Will you?
