Marls said that there were "no really good yields this year." He said the drought bad even taken its toll on the irrigated wheat in the county, where winter kill and bugs had also hurt the 2006 win- ter wheat yields. A total of about 466,000 bush- els was all the wheat taken in at the Co-op in Coldwater this year, with an additional 141,000 taken in at the elevator in Wilmore. More than half that total came in a five day period two weeks ago, June 5-9. During that five- day period, 260,000 bushels were hauled in to the local elevator. The "biggie" as far as taking in grain in Coidwater was on June 6 when about 64,000 bushels were dumped at the elevator. That 64,000 bushels would amount to less than half of a good day's take in a normal year. Big day for taking in wheat at the Wilmore elevator was June 8. That day about 19,000 bush- els of the 2006 wheat was dumped. Just like at the Coldwat- er facility, more than half came in a string of five days June 5-9. During that time, 77,000 bushels of wheat were unloaded in Wilmore.

Every child is at risk. If your child uses alcohol or other drugs, it does not mean you are a bad parent. It means your child may need your help. Some children are more at risk than others. For example, a young person might start using alcohol or other drugs if he or she has little parental supervi- sion or guidance; has untreated emotional or behavioral prob- lems, i.e hyperactivity, depres- sion, or anxiety; has family mem- bers or friends who use alcohol or other drugs; or has low grades and poor school performance. For young people, alcohol and other drugs are dangerous - and illegal. Even one-time use is dan- gerous! How can you help? Get in-' volved in your child's life. Start early. Ask your child what she/ he would like to be when they grow up. Begin to identify their urfique talents and praise them at every opportunity as they pursue positive goals and activi- ties. Share your values with your child, and teach him/her how to make good cho ices. Be respon- sible with your own use of alco- hol or medication. Show that you care by know- ing where your child is at all times. Have him/her check in with you regularly. Get to know your child's friends and their parents, Show an interest in your child's daily life by listening to his/her opinions and concerns. Make specific rules and make it very clear to your child that us- ing alcohol or other drugs is not acceptable. Have specific con- sequences for b~eaking the rules - and stick to them. Be consis- tent! Know what to do if you think your child is using alcohol or other drugs. Talk about it right away. Stay calm so you can ex- press your thoughts clearly. Lis- ten carefully to your child'.s re- sponses. (If be/she is under the influence, wait to talk or until he/ she is sober.) Remind your child of your rules about alcohol or other drug use. Follow through on the consequences you set for breaking those rules. Seek advice. For example, you could contact a health-care pro- vider, school counselor, sub- stance abuse counselor, or your community mental health center. There are also community and/ or national hotlines available. Tel!your child that you are act- ing to help, not punish him/her. Here are some behavioral warning signs: . Depression Extreme mood swings Confusion, anxiety or para- noia (extreme fear or mistrust) Aggressiveness, reckless- ness or poor judgment Talkativeness, excitability or euphoria (feeling unusually happy) Not wanting to introduce new friends to you Acting withdrawn or secre- tive Drop in grades or school attendance Change is part of growing up. Changing friends, appearanc~ and interests is to be expected. But every parent should con- sider the possibility of alcohol and other drug use. These changes may also be signs of other problems. Seek profes- sional help if you have any con- cerns. Take immediate steps to help. Iroquois Center has several materials about alcohol and drug use.
