Holidays Have You Down? It is sad, but for some of us, the holidays are not a time of joy. While holidays do not increase the likelyhood of suicide, that behavior is sill a big concern in Idaho. Statistics from the Idaho Suicide Prevention Network put Idaho 6th in the nation for 2010. Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for adolescents and young adults in Idaho, and 15.4% of Idaho youth attending traditional high schools reported seriously considering suicide in 2011. To help individuals work through those kinds of feeling, Idaho recently opened up a suicide prevention hotline:

(800) 273-TALK This number is available at all times, but calls will be routed to crisis centers outside the state in off-hours. The plan is to have Idaho’s line open 24/7 eventually. To reach that goal, Idaho needs more funding and call volunteers. To donate or volunteer, go to www.facebook.com/ idahosuicideprevention, and find out how you can help.

Making Christmas a Holiday Now that Thanksgiving is over, preperations for Christmas are in full swing, but it doesn’t have to be... “all about you” and your family. It can be so much more. This Friday and Saturday (starting at 10 a.m. each day), plan to attend the annual Gooding Holiday Craft Show at the Gooding High School. While you shop for gifts, toys, jewelry, books, holiday decorations, and great holiday foods, you can help others in your community. HELPING HEARTS & HANDS will have barrels at the craft show to collect your donations of canned foods, personal care items (soap, shampoo, toothpaste, etc.), and winter coats. These local donations are very important because the Idaho Food Bank and USDA only account for a third of the hundred plus food boxes that HH&H distributes each month. All of the rest, including the “Food for Kids” program, comes from local people through food and/or monitary donations. Also this Saturday, December 1st, the Golden Years Senior Center in Shoshone (218 N. Rail St. W.) will be hosting a Christmas Bazaar. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. you can shop for crafts and baked goods, or just stop in for lunch. Cost is only $5 for soup or chili with bread, cinnamon rolls, and coffee. All proceeds will go to help keep this valuable service available for our elderly folks, but remember... younger people are welcome at the center anytime as well. While you are in Shoshone, you can also attend the Grand Opening of the Ray of Hope Thrift Store. Located at 117 South Rail Street West, the Lincoln County Chamber of Commerce will be having a Ribbon Cutting ceremony at 2 p.m. Ray of Hope is an outreach of Oasis Christian Fellowship and the primary goal of the thrift store is to provide funds for the Hope for the Hungry food bank in Shoshone, as well as helping people with emergency needs. They can use donations of clothing, household items, furniture, and most everything.

...but never Compromising the Truth.

Cup of Tee

The United States is in the midst of creating another holiday for the American public. This is a day that is solely American because it is starting to reflect our actions. It seems like the birth of this holiday is about 80 years in the making. More and more people are requesting the day off from work. It is only natural that the government recognize the day and pass some legislation to give the people what they want. I would like to get the credit for naming the holiday, but someone else probably has already coined it. The holiday would be the day after Thanksgiving (normally noted as Black Friday) and could be called... Thankstaking Day. Let me elaborate. The retailers are so desperate to get the rest of us to shop with them that they will do anything to draw in the masses. One way is to advertize a few items (called lost leaders) at a ridiculous low price to get people to drive for miles just to obtain them. In order to accommodate the masses, the store will open at 3:00 or 5:00 a.m. Since parking permits are usually free, people will get there the night before; sometimes camping out, just to get a place in line. The employees are stationed throughout the store. There sole job is to detour the crowd around through a maze to get more people in the store (probably surpasses fire code). Then, an underpaid, underinsured doorman will unlock the door for the hour glass funneling of the crowd (the heaviest part at the rear pushes the front through a narrow opening). This process is quite similar to the land grab in Oklahoma in the 1800’s. The store will only purchase four of the “lost leader” items such as TV’s to satisfy the crowd of ten to the second power. The ad always says, “sale limited to product on hand - No rain checks.” Here’s where the Thankstaking comes in play. Since so many people want what the store has deliberately short changed, people go beyond their “Love Thy Neighbor” make up, and start pushing each other. If that’s not enough distraction, they will steal it out of someone’s hands or shopping cart. Ultimately, foul language and hatred is promoted. I don’t know if I can blame the ingredient in turkey that makes everyone sleepy for putting people out of their senses. If that is the case, maybe they should have peacock, as was mentioned in last week’s “Cup of Tee.” I have a hard time thinking that I should do a whole store’s yearly business in one day. What is wrong with selling people with old fashioned American values on American made products all year long? Maybe greed, deceit, lies, and selfishness of today’s society, is now the new American way. The whole idea of giving thanks (Thanksgiving) seems to be short any more. Maybe we should consider the Thankstaking Day as a new holiday. Let’s eliminate any previous values by spray painting they Black Friday. This is my “Cup of Burnt Tee.”
