Texas Parent to ParentAustinTexas HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius today announced $4.9 million in new and continuing grants to support the Family-to-Family Health Information Centers, primarily non-profit organizations run by and for families with children with special health care needs, including Vermont Family Network. Funding for the centers was extended through 2012 by the Affordable Care Act. Created in 2005, the centers are state-wide, family-led organizations that provide information, education, training, outreach, and peer support to families of children and youth with special health care needs and the professionals who serve them. “In the last year, the work of these Family to Family Health Information Centers has had a real impact on the families, and community and state systems that serve them,” said Secretary Sebelius. “After working with these Centers, more than 90 percent of the families surveyed, reported they were helped in finding or navigating community services for their children with special health care needs.”The Family-to-Family Health Information Centers are staffed by trained family leaders who have children with special health care needs, and expertise in navigating federal, state and local public and private health care systems. These Centers are also staffed by and/or linked with health professionals. HHS’ Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) oversees the program.”More than 900,000 families of children with special health care needs were served at Centers in the past year,” said HRSA Administrator Mary Wakefield, Ph.D., R.N. “And over 400,000 providers and other professionals were able to benefit from their services, making invaluable information regarding the needs of these children more widely available than ever before.”Since the program’s inception, Family-to-Family Health Information Centers have served hundreds of thousands of families and health care providers. Today’s funding will support 51 centers, of which six are newly HRSA-supported (Delaware, the District of Columbia, Connecticut, Florida, Indiana, and Oregon). Each grant award is up to $95,700 per year.Family-to Family Health Centers Fiscal Year 2011 Competitive Awards Virginia Commonwealth UniversityRichmondVa.
Throughout the KIJHL season The Nelson Daily Sports Editor Bruce Fuhr will take a capsule look at the players on the Nelson Leafs hockey club. Today the focus in on Nelson native and Leaf winger, Dallon Stoddart.It wasn’t that long ago when Dallon Stoddart was watching Brock Munro gain speed at center ice before breaking through the defence and picking the top corner of the net.Or, Dylan Walchuk progress from an unknown to a household name in as he led the Leafs in playoff scoring during Nelson’s waltz to the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League crown in 2009.That was then.And this is 2011 where the 6-foot, 175-pound Stoddart is not the watcher. He’s the right there in living Green and White doing his own flying, with a parachute of course, up and down the left wing.“It’s every kids dream growing up playing minor hockey to play for your hometown team,” Stoddart admitted to The Nelson Daily. “And now I get to live it.”This is actually Stoddart’s third stint with the Heritage City franchise that is younger in 2011 than most other KIJHL teams.His first turn came as a bit of a surprise.After completing the 2009-10 season with the Kootenay Ice of the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League, Stoddart joined teammates Troy Petrick and Blake Arcuri as call-ups to the Leafs.During the playoff run Nelson was decimated with injuries forcing then head coach Simon Wheeldon to scramble to put a line up together.Hence the likes of Stoddart, Petrick and Arcuri, dubbed the “Black Aces” by one local media personality, were called upon to fill the lineup.Stoddart played four games, which was more than enough time to allow the injured players to return the lineup and help the Leafs upset the Fernie Ghostriders and into the KIJHL Final.However, the Leafs lost to the Revelstoke Grizzlies in five games.But being part of the buzz inside the NDCC Arena was one of the highlights for this Nelson Minor Hockey grad.Last season, Stoddart’s first full campaign with the Green and White, now that was not as much fun at all.“Sometimes (playing for your home town’s junior team) has its up and downs but overall I have my guys around me to help and I tend to zone everything else out,” explained Stoddart, deciding not to attend any Junior A camps, instead focusing on the Leafs. “And if I need any help I have the people around me as support. Stoddart, the son of Sharon and Doug Stoddart, has always loved playing hockey. But at the tender age of 18, he already realizes education is a big part of his future.He only hopes hockey can also be part of that future.“I really want to go to school and continue to play hockey,” said Stoddart, working toward an engineering degree starting this fall at Selkirk College in Castlegar.“And I’ll try to do whatever I can to make that dream come true.”Stoddart is one of a quartet of Nelsonites on the Leafs roster. Two of those players, Carsen Willans and Linden Horswill, join Stoddart to form the all-Nelson line.Prior to Thursday’s game in Grand Forks, the trio had accumulated 15 points.“We starting to get to know how each other plays,” said Stoddart, leading the Nelson trio with seven points, including three goals.“We getting to know where were going to be and how we can help each other out on the ice.”Despite being the old guy on the line, Stoddart likes what he sees in teammates Carsen and Linden.“(Carsen and Linden) maybe younger but they know how to play this game and are learning how to get the job done and have their heads in the right place,” he said.Just like Dallon Stoddart, who has grown from a fan to one of the leaders of the Leafs.Dallon Stoddart Fast FactsPosition: ForwardHeight: 6-footWeight: 175 poundsShoots: LeftHometown: NelsonAge: 18Favourite Music: Likes all musicFavourite NHL Team: Vancouver CanucksFavourite NHL Player: Sidney CrosbyBlackberry or iPhone: Blackberry, but iPod for music

We have a focus on helping female ballers to train and progress in the sport of basketball this year,” said Ferrer.This innovation sparked inspiration among the female athletes in the country, who are hoping to lead the charge in taking women’s basketball to the next level.ADVERTISEMENT Murals of WNBA star Maya Moore and NBA icon LeBron James alongside each other in Hypercourts in Taguig.

Dear Editor,The fight within the People’s National Congress (PNC) to succeed David Granger as party leader has begun, even as he is receiving medical treatment overseas. From what is going on, the fight is nasty to say the least.Since coming to Government in May 2015, many allegations of corruption were levelled at various Government officials from sections of society. The many financial improprieties as revealed through the Auditor General reports are shocking.The Sussex Street bond fiasco, the D’Urban Park Project and the sole sourcing of hundreds of millions of dollars in drugs from both a leading Private Sector establishment and a shell company from overseas, are a mere few instances of wanton corruption. All were publicly denied by Government officials.As the President takes ill, the opportunists within are now pointing fingers at each other with accusations of corruption. Suddenly, it is a fight to show who is more corrupt. The infighting and the jostle for the position in the hierarchy of the leadership, has reached a point where it places the PNC on the path of breaking up and many stalwarts are worried.The battle to expose who has accumulated and sucked the most wealth from taxpayers since May 2015 has reached boiling point and now explains why they refused to submit their declarations to the Integrity Commission.The situation is such that the few who have the party at heart and who have expressed their concerns over the ongoing and unbridled corruption by party officials bleeding the country in the process, are being quickly pushed aside.What was always known by many regarding corruption by the PNC and which was denied, is coming to light from their own mouths as they trample on each other for the ultimately leadership position.If the Special Organised Crime Unit (SOCU) and State Assets Recovery Agency (SARA) are really concerned about curbing corruption, it can easily gather confessions from those who are now fighting openly within the PNC. As they fight and the stories of corruption unfold, the impact could not only lead to the breakup of the PNC, but would bring further economic hardships to the country as a whole.Sincerely,Alvin Hamilton

Eleven others sustained injuries of various degrees and are undergoing medical treatment at the J.F.K. Medical Center in Sinkor, Monrovia.An LNP release said among the wounded was Super FM program producer Rose Zazay, who sustained wounds on both legs. The LNP said it is yet to establish the cause of the accident.The truck driver, Mohammed Kamara, 38, is reportedly assisting the LNP in its investigation.The LNP said “Under Chapter 5 of the Vehicle and Traffic Law of Liberia, captioned Civil Liability, every owner of a vehicle operated on any highway to which this title is applicable shall be liable and responsible for deaths or injuries to a person or property(ies) resulting from negligence in the use or operation of such a vehicle.”Many people interviewed by the Daily Observer appealed to the government to regulate the time that heavy laden container trucks operate in the city.“Most of the container trucks are faulty,” said a young woman who saw the accident, adding, “the truck’s brake gave up and that was why the accident took place.”She appealed to the LNP to work along with the Ministry of Transport to ensure that faulty trucks are removed from the streets of Monrovia and are not allowed to haul heavy containers.“We have to be proactive to prevent accidents from happening,” she said. “It is bad for the government to allow preventable accidents to take place that (take away) precious lives.”Eye witnesses recalled that due to faulty vehicles, many Liberians have lost their lives and Saturday’s accident should claim the attention of the government.“The Ministry of Transport and the LNP should visit the Freeport of Monrovia and examine all container vehicles and remove those not road worthy from the streets. That way we would prevent future unnecessary deaths,” she said.In a related development, another container truck reportedly lost control and fell on its side near the Bong Mines Bridge, outside Monrovia last evening. Although no casualty was reported, the situation created a prolonged traffic jam in the area.
They were the top team throughout the Fort St. John Rec Hockey League regular season, breezed through the playoffs, and over the weekend capped the season with a win in the year end rec hockey tournament. The season couldn’t have gone any better for the Continental Kings as they put a bow on their year with an 8-2 win in the finals over Big Chief.Darcy Corcoran plays for the squad and said after falling behind early the team stuck with the game plan and it was full steam ahead from there.“The game was pretty good,” he said. “We gave up one early but we came back and played pretty hard. They took some stupid penalties and we capitalized on it. We controlled the puck and put pressure on them and put the puck on the net.”- Advertisement -The tournament also provided Huskies prospect Logan Edwards with some playing time as starting goalie Sheldon Gibb was unable to take part in the tournament.Prior to the year end tournament win the Kings went 13-3-2 in the regular season, and 3-0-1 in the playoffs.

But … In addition to being the most marketable star in baseball, Bryce Harper is also an excellent player, too.At age 26 and having recently posted one of the greatest offensive seasons in the history of the sport, there’s no doubt Harper would have helped the Giants win games in the coming years.But in 2029, 2030, and 2031? That’s a different story.Harper agreed to a deal with the Phillies on Thursday, ending the dream of him in orange and black, hitting moonshots into McCovey Cove.

The Cleveland Cavaliers and their recent NBA championship highlights this year’s Butter Cow Display.“We’re really excited about Ohio’s dairy farmers being able to sponsor this display,” said Scott Higgins of the American Dairy Association – Mideast. “The celebration of the Cleveland Cavaliers becoming national champions after all these years is one we just simply couldn’t pass up. We are excited to be able to display them in butter. And the depiction we have using Moon Dog and Sir CC and of course the treasured trophy wrapped with the cavalier logo is on display here, one that you’re not going to want to miss.”The butter sculptures will be on display the entire length of the fair in the Dairy Products Building between the Coliseum and the Voinovich Building.The cooler in which the butter is kept remains a balmy 46 degrees. Overall, the works took 500 hours to complete and about 2,150 pounds of butter were used in the process. The display looks to recognize Ohio’s dairy farmers.“Of course the butter cow and butter calf always look dynamic. We have a dairy farmer who’s an artist and he comes and does this for us every other year. It’s a beautiful cow, come see her,” Higgins said.Several fair dignitaries were in attendance and spoke to the audience.The 2016 Ohio State Fair opens to the public on Wednesday and runs through August 7th.

5210 Healthy Messaging Campaign takeaway slide by Dr. Jen Dinallo presented Sept 22, 2015Blog by Robin Allen MSPH, RDN , LDN5-2-1-0 Healthy Messaging, Healthy Military Children was a great webinar, presented on September 22, 2015 by Dr. Jen DiNallo. The first time I had heard about the 5210 Healthy Messaging Program was preparing for this webinar. Now I discover it is being used successfully in many communities, including my hometown of Pensacola, FL.What did I learn? I have mistakenly been referring to 5210 only in connection with childhood obesity. I was very wrong! 5210 is health promotion program for children and teens! What is the difference? Health promotion is a positive focus and is for everyone. Childhood obesity is negative and eliminates children/teens who may still need to develop other healthy behaviors.5210 Healthy Military Children was further explored with Dr. Jennifer DiNallo in this interesting audio cast with Dr. Karen Chapman-Novakofski, MFLN Nutrition and Wellness. The Military has fully embraced this program for families, child care facilities, elementary, middle and high schools, youth centers, after-school programs, cafeterias, restaurants, commissaries/grocery stores, fitness centers, workplace, and all healthcare professionals and leaders.The 2 main goals:“Permeate children’s and families’ environments with the 5210 message.“Provides strategies to support 5210 behaviors to a variety of people and places.” “5210 podcast” How can you implement 5210 in your community? Check out the 5210 HMC website www.5210.healthymilitarychildren.psu.edu. There is a tool kit with step by step instructions to help with the implementation of this great program located at this web site. More information is available at the Clearinghouse for Military Family Readiness http://www.militaryfamilies.psu.edu/ .5210 might be just right for your community, school, or wherever healthy children, teens and family is a priority.This post was written by Robin Allen, a member of the Military Families Learning Network (MFLN) Nutrition and Wellness team which aims to support the development of professionals working with military families.
