Registration begins at 1:30 p.m. and the walk is at 2:30 p.m. There will be activities and entertainment throughout the afternoon.

Proceeds from the Buddy Walk will be shared with the National Down Syndrome Association, the Down Syndrome Association of Minnesota and with The Arc United. Locally funds will be used to provide information, support, and recreational activities for individuals with Down syndrome or other disabilities and for their families. All are welcome to attend and enjoy the activities, entertainment, and refreshments.

The Arc United (formerly Arc Headwaters) is a nonprofit organization serving children and adults with disabilities and their families throughout 25 counties in northwest and central Minnesota. In the May 5, Colliers Weekly, wrote the folio Francisco is issue of London "San Nothing remains of it but memories. On Wednesday norning at a quarter past rice came the earthquake. A miqute later the flames were leaplng upward. There was no organization, no communication. were humped int depressions and debris of fallen the shrewd contt safeguards of m thrown out of ge seconds' twitchi earth's crust." Now, more th l'he streets ridges and piled with walls. All ivances and n had been ar by thirty ag of the tn a century later, the focus f the world - I is on Halt1, due / to another twitching of thegarth's crest causing almost qnimaginable destruction and making many wonder when and where the next quake will strike. Experts warn us that there are between 1,500 and 10,000 tremors a day on this fidgety planet, reminding us of the words of our Lord for our time: "There [ A psalm for earthquakes will be earthquakes in various places" (Matthew 24:7). The Bible compares our shaky planet to a woman having labor pains and about to give birth. During the hours of travail, as birth approaches, her pains increase in frequency and severity. In context, this comparison has to do with time's steady march in the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy, calling for the future to hold a whole lot of shaking to be going on. Life holds many experiences that have the power to shake us up. Most of us go through things we didn't think we would and some of us experience things we didn't think we could. Personal earthquakes can be even more frightening than those that cause streets to buckle and buildings to fall. Fiery trials, as the apostles called them, bum as deeply and painfully as the fires we see in television news reports of earthquake damage in Haiti. To prepare us for these individual twitching times, we've been given the forty sixth Psalms which begins with the following faith builder for tough times: "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea" (Psalm 46:1- 2). The key to discovering peace for our shaking times is found in eight words appearing near the end of this set of fear fighting verses in the earthquake Psalm: "Be still and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:10), a promise for peace in times of peril. No God, no peace. Know God, know peace. Those who hide in God, finding their strength in Him through faith, are equipped to face every storm and shaking season life brings their way. Some have wondered how some Haitians could be peaceful in a time of such peril. The answer is often found in their solid relationship with their Lord, who said, "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." The , tune played itself out in my Singing the words, whil going to and from camp ,as a child, apparently helped the words stick. "Prepared l prepared, the motto of a Girl Scout... prepared, preparel, the motto of a scout!" l This theme [must have worked its way irto the fabric of my life becatse not only am I usually prepared for what happens, bpt I'm also prepared for that which usually never does. I've made first aid kits...just in caseq..and I have purchased books on what to do in case of an accident out in the boonies wihth no doctor available. It dawned on me ODe day, that if indee d an accident such as they describe in the book would eve happen, I certainly wouldnlt have time to read what to do or not to do, whichever wuld be least detrimental. / Even within the contents of my purse, I am prepared. I lug around shot reco(ds for each one of my six, at all times, never mind most/of them are now in their twen[ies. I have a needle and threa d to stitch up that which mightome undone Pre pared.., p re pare d... the motto of a Girl Scout and even a button or two...just in case. Extra vitamins are a must in my tote, and there is lots of junk in general. In fact, I've tried to down size several times, thinking this might help my need to not carry such a load, but I always end up feeling the need to upgrade and the cycle begins again. One just never knows when you may have to stuff in a camera, camcorder, homework, or even a few groceries, now that the world is going green! However, as of late, I am feeling like I'm not on top of things in the preparedness department as I usually am. What snagged my mirror of self reflection? I was folding laundry and was trying to find at least a couple of matching socks amongst the misfits. As I am responsible for the clothing budget, I find myself squeaky in the area of spending much on new socks for hubby. Truth- be-told, there are simply other things I'd rather spend the family cash on. Holes or no holes, one cannot see them underfoot...but a nice new rug by the sink...well...who wouldn't just warm at the sight of that! I'm also in charge of maintaining the regular oil check-ups for the family vehicle. However, when it seems to be running just fine and no one can really see if the oil is dirty or clean...well...I'd just as soon spend my money on something just a little more fun. The computer could use some ink because the well has run dry, but, we have company coming and some nice napkins and a new candle or two would sure add a spark around here. As I placed a few matching pairs of socks which were once lost but now are found, back into his drawer, I realized that it really wasn't as much about being prepared as it was about making choices. Choices as to where and how one spends resources.., choices between family insurance or family food.. choices between buying a rug or renting the rug doctor... and on and on. Yes, as we grow up, we no longer sing theories but live out realities. As holey turns into holy., and we stand the ground on which we walk, we will hopefully be humming to the tune.of that which He is calling. May I always remember that "with His council, He guides me." (Psalm 73:24) Amen. ........ Parents in juvenile court i' i1 head in agreement, probation. Our success rate in  : The next case involved these cases is greatly enhanced ............ " ;ii!l a young man who was when the parents and Probation N also charged with minor work together. David had l?een caught drinking and he vas appearing in court with hisparents. They had arrived 25 inutes early. David sat upright and looked me in the eye as I explained his legal rights. When I asked David if he unCterstood his rights he replied, "Yes sir." David waived his right to have an attorney and indicated he was willing to proceed without i one. e] When I ask David if he wanted to admit or deny the charge he glanced at his father, who gave a nod. David admitted that he h M attended a party and consumgd three cans of beer The ofcer's report indicated that David was cooperative and that he tested at .07 on a portable breath test (PBT). / Before deciting what to do in these ases, I ask the parents for. input and inquire if they have imposed any consequences at home. David s parents nformed me that they had treaed the matter seriously. They had grounded David indefinitely, taken away his cell phone, inot allowed him to drive, had him do extra chores around the house and had read him the iot act about drinking. After getting a recommendation I from Probation and he county attorney, I askel if anyone had anything elsthey wanted me to consider. !David's dad indicated that he lid and when I called on himo speak he ,,turned to his sgn and said, You will not se my kid in court again." David nodded his consumption. Todd and his father appeared a few minutes late for the hearing. Todd indicated that he understood his rights and he also waived his right to have an attorney. He admitted that he attended the same party and had a couple sips of beer. The officer's report indicated, however, that Todd was quite intoxicated and that he tested at .21 on a PBT. I asked Todd's father if he had imposed any consequences at home. He indicated that he had not, and complained that it was not fair that his child got charged because there were other kids at the party who ran into the woods when the officers arrived and did not get caught. He also minimized his son's drinking, and argued that the PBT must not have been working right. When I asked if he had any concerns about his son's drinking he replied that he did not. While our two youthful offenders committed the exact same offense, their parents responded in dramatically different ways. That parental response is sometimes revealing about the parent- child relationship and the amount of control the parents have over the child. If the parents have already effectively disciplined their child, I will build upon and reinforce what they have done. In these cases it often is not necessary to place the child on supervised probation. In other cases the parental discipline was appropriate but not effective. These children are usually placed on supervised Our most troublesome cases are those in which the parents are either unable or unwilling to discipline their child. Parents who are enablers or who look the other way when their child violates a probation condition are working against us. It is difficult, and sometimes impossible, to redirect such a youth. Several years ago I had a case in which a child was caught using marijuana. He would not disclose where he was getting it. A chemical dependency evaluation revealed that the young man had been using for quite some time and recommended treatment. We sent the kid to treatment, but he kept using. We later learned that the young man was getting his marijuana from his parents. No...he wasn't stealing it from them. They were giving it to him. We see less dramatic examples of enabling all the time. It is frustrating when parents undermine our efforts to "restore the child to law abiding conduct." It has been said that" it takes a village to raise a child." We need to add a qualifier to that. It sure helps when the village is all on the same page. As always, remember it is your court.
