So, what do they do?

About This Group
Description
Phelan Lowdown is the group who keeps it real. We are up for intense, but respectful, conversation. Respectful being key. Pretty much no subject is off limits.... with the exception of national politics...but if admin cuts it off...it's for a reason. We have a low tolerance for drama, and don't be an anatomical conundrum when you post, I delete those, and you, pretty fast for it.  If someone has done you wrong, feel free to discuss it here, but know there is a difference between being done wrong...and being butthurt. :)

In this day and age with bullying (cyber or otherwise) being so prevalent, any personal attack against another person/admin/moderator will be grounds for either being muted or kicked out, it will be at the admin or moderator's discretion. This includes complaint posts about this group on any other group. We are adults in this group, act like it.

Watch your language. There are certain words that aren't tolerated. Racial slurs and the "c" word are not necessary. I shouldn't have had to add this. :tello: yes you are!

We prefer no for sale stuff...since there is a proliferation of groups for such things already. The largest for the area being Wrightwood Garage Sale group. If you are a local business you are welcome to advertise once a week and I would prefer if you just bumped your ad instead of making a new one, if that's possible.

While we always allow lost/found pets to be posted. If you are rehoming an animal you MUST get prior approval from admin before posting. Any post made without admin approval will be removed. You can rehome for up to $75 if not vetted, up to $150 if they are (fixed and shot record). Any animals being posted that are more than this amount, you must get approval from admin. All animals must be 8 weeks or older. Any pet adopted it's adopter beware. Do your own homework, any issues are not this group's responsibility. Any harassment of people posting animals will be removed and you muted. Do not post looking for a stud/Irma Grese for your own backyard breeding.

Any type of fundraising or gofundme must be approved by admin first.

If you take issue with how this group is run, feel free to unjoin. Posting to the group complaining about it will result in you being removed. I have PMs, say something there. NOTE: swearing at me and calling me names won't get you very far, be warmed.

Any questions, please feel free to PM me...julietteowle

Youth suicides on the rise in Elko County
TONI R. MILANO tmilano@elkodaily.com  Mar 29, 2019  0

Suicide. The word resonates deeply throughout any community.

For some, it is a painful reminder of the loss of a loved one. For others, it is a category of death that concerns first responders, social workers and lawmakers who are seeking to prevent more deaths.

The reaction to suicide is complex. Those who are touched by the death of a loved one or a friend look for answers for the rise in suicides, especially in Elko County. In recent years the number has skyrocketed, evidenced by more calls to the Elko Interagency Dispatch Center and the county coroner.

According to dispatcher Colleen Piacitelli, the amount of suicide calls in Elko County is rising. In 2018, dispatch received 464 calls regarding threats of suicide, attempts at suicide, or deaths by suicide. Within the first two months of 2019, dispatch has taken 73 calls. Four of them resulted in death determined by suicide.

As the numbers increase, so do the studies that point to a suicide crisis among youth, with Nevada ranking 11th in the nation, according to 2017 data released this month by the American Association of Suicidology. The group reported that “suicide is the second leading cause of death among Nevada youth aged 10-24 years old.”

Elko County chief deputy coroner Nick Czegledi reported in 2018 there were 15 deaths resulting from suicide. In 2017, there were 19. But it’s the age of the victims that is disturbing to him.

“Between 16 and 30 years old is a high zone,” said Czegledi.

He explained that suicides among elderly adults are often due to illness, while those in their 40s or 50s can be a result of psychological trauma such as the loss of a spouse.

“The younger ones seem to be more preventable,” Czegledi said.

Last year, eight suicides in Elko County were between the ages of 16 and 33 years old.

Youth suicides on the rise

Testifying before the Nevada Legislature’s Committee of Education on March 7 in Carson City, Piacitelli said she has taken calls from children as young as 6 years old threatening suicide.

“With insanely increasing numbers, I ask myself, ‘Why do we have our children and young adults turning to suicide?’” Piacitelli said.

The answers might be revealed when a teen hits his or her crisis point, according to Larry Robb, social worker coordinator for the Elko County School District. He opens his office at Elko High School to any student who needs to visit for five minutes or longer, and he and his staff have handled many suicide threats.

“At the time of ‘crisis’ the student does not always articulate a reason,” Robb said. Sometimes it is one or a mix of several factors, he said, including feelings of isolation from peers and/or family; conflicts among them; and a feeling of inability to cope with life’s challenges.

Piacitelli agreed with Robb, adding that “there isn’t one answer. One person’s breaking point is going to be different from another.”

However, one of the top factors seems to be social media posts, Robb said. “Youth have access to many apps that may be used for bullying, blackmail and gossip.”

The school district said about 15 to 20 students reported instances of self-harm through the online reporting system SafeVoice within the past year. The district has seen about one to two suicides per year, but could not provide an exact number “because of lack of reporting,” said Superintendent Todd Pehrson.

Statewide, SafeVoice received 7,383 tips in connection with suicide last year.

Prevention through education

Before a child reaches their school campus, the warning signs are already present, says Lynette Vega, a teacher and suicide prevention awareness advocate.

Sitting at her desk at the Elko Institute of Academic Achievement, Vega remembered how her life changed from a phone call in early 2008 informing her of her 23-year-old daughter’s death.

Rachelle Sloan was living in South Carolina at the time, and was serving in the Air Force. She had returned from a tour of duty in Iraq and had been hospitalized after one suicide attempt two months before she took her life.

“I thought she was getting the help she needed,” Vega said. “This is the one big reason why I’m an advocate for suicide prevention. I wasn’t educated.”

Today, Vega leads a local support group and recently started Zero Suicides Elko County, a nonprofit that will aim to educate the community about how to spot warning signs and talk to someone contemplating suicide.

One lesson learned was that “parents need to take it serious when kids come to them and admit their thoughts to them,” Vega said, adding that parents must also be aware of their child’s changes in habits and outlook on life.

“Sadness and depression are two different things,” said Vega, who teaches life skills at EIAA. Someone can be sad for not getting the thing they want, whereas someone with depression has difficulty getting out of bed and stops engaging with society.

Educating someone with depression to ask for help is vital, Vega said. “Like I tell the kids; they are their biggest advocate when they don’t feel right …. Go to someone who can help, but you don’t give up.”

Her desire to get the word out about resources and warning signs of suicide led Vega to approach Assemblyman John Ellison to sponsor Assembly Bill 114, which aims to enforce a previous law, NRS 389.021, to teach suicide prevention to fifth through 12th grade students.

Speaking before the Legislature’s Committee on Education March 7, Ellison was joined by Vega and Piacitelli. Ellison explained that although it is an unfunded mandate, he appealed to the committee to enforce the statute.

“I’m not asking to put debt on anyone, but to follow some of the laws that are out there on the books,” he said.

The seven-letter word

Starting the conversation about suicide early is necessary to address mental health issues and remove fear from the topic, said Vega a week before testifying in Carson City.

“Parents are worried about the stigma,” she said. “[They] are discriminated. The family is looked at like they have something wrong with them.”

It also includes having the right words to get to an individual’s heart who is in the midst of a crisis. One such program, safeTalk alertness training, has proven beneficial for at least one school administrator who was immediately faced with a student who stated he wanted to end his life, Vega said.

“Up until that day, he had no idea what to say and no idea what to talk about. The training was very helpful for him,” Vega said.

Tackling the subject of mental health head-on by having parents and counselors join forces is necessary to fight the problem and save lives, said Robb.

“Stigma surrounding accessing mental health resources needs to change,” he said. “Thoughts and feelings towards suicide prevention need to change as well.”

No age limit

Suicides are most prevalent among adults between the ages of 45 and 65 whose age group ranks first in data from 2017, according to the American Association of Suicidology. But the prevalence among teens and young adults has risen much faster in recent years.

Vega admitted that in the years after her daughter’s death, she endured a deep depression that gave her another perspective into what the crisis looks like from the inside.

“I went through my ordeal,” Vega said. “Nobody noticed or said anything to me. You can look normal, even if you aren’t doing well.”

“I had to go to a grief counselor,” she remembered. “I couldn’t do this anymore by myself. I had to reach out.”

Coming out of that experience, Vega said it has made her fearless when she notices something is off about a friend or co-worker.

“If I see something going on, I will approach them. I’m not afraid to ask. You can’t be afraid to ask,” Vega said.

The darkness doesn’t last

The uncertainty of how to handle challenges and the burdens of life weighs heavily on today’s youth, said Robb.

“Students report lack of church attendance, aloneness, loneliness, taking on too many roles, such as having to care for younger siblings, or working,” as some other reasons teens contemplate suicide.

Piacitelli hears similar reasons.

“The one factor I hear and see most [are people] coping with everyday life, whether it is school, family or friends,” she told the Legislature. “Our young people are missing this key ingredient to surviving their current moment and thriving into adulthood.”

So how can someone survive the moment of crisis? According to Vega, it comes down to education about the bigger picture and the fact that the pain will not last, which are lessons learned from her daughter’s death.

“I carry the guilt with me that I didn’t learn about suicide prevention until after her death,” Vega told the committee. “She didn’t want to die; she only wanted her pain to end.”

Today, Vega teaches her students to keep in mind a couple of simple truths for when the hard times hit and the pain may seem unbearable. One is that suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.

The other is, “life is always changing. Hang in there for another day.”

Nevermind that.
Check this out!


:tello:  "The hypocracy is glaring!"
So they like guns, but not if we use them wisely???


Do we stand up now ... or ... when they come to get the guns?

ELKO — A standing-room-only crowd clapped and cheered for Elko County Sheriff Aitor Narvaiza when he walked in before the start of the Elko County commissioners’ meeting Wednesday afternoon. The main item on the commissioners’ agenda was the discussion of a resolution to declare Elko County a Second Amendment sanctuary county, and around 200 people came out to show their support for their Second Amendment rights.

Twelve people got up to speak during the public comment session, and there were many expressions of assent as people talked. When the commissioners unanimously passed the resolution, people jumped to their feet in a standing ovation.

On Feb. 15 Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak signed Senate Bill 143, which has requirements for background checks for gun purchasers. After learning about this bill, Narvaiza thought that Elko County should follow the lead of other counties around the country protesting what they see as state laws which infringe on the Second Amendment.

Other rural counties in Nevada are also passing Second Amendment resolutions. Nevada Assemblyman Jim Wheeler joined Wednesday’s Elko County Commission meeting by phone and said that more than 500 people came out when the Douglas County commissioners passed their resolution March 14.

“It is my intention that Elko County sends a strong message to the people of Nevada,” Sheriff Narvaiza said at Tuesday’s meeting. “Listen to us and do not infringe on our Second Amendment rights.”

The resolutions being passed by counties around the country in support of gun rights take various approaches to opposing state gun laws. Some take a “send a message” approach, saying the county does not approve of the gun control laws being passed by the state, while some state that the county’s law enforcement officers will not enforce state laws deemed to be in violation of the Second Amendment.

The resolution which the Elko County commissioners approved Wednesday looks back through some of the history of the United States, and then concludes, “Now, therefore, be it resolved by the Elko County Board of Commissioners that Elko County is a Sanctuary County for the Second Amendment; and be it further resolved that this Board affirms its support of the duly elected Elko County Sheriff in the exercise of his sound discretion to not enforce any unconstitutional firearms laws against any citizen; and be it further resolved that this Board will not authorize or appropriate any funds or resources for the purpose of enforcing law that infringes on the constitutional right to keep and bear arms.”

“This support is overwhelming,” Commissioner Rex Steninger said to the crowd in his opening remarks at Wednesday’s meeting. “I’ve been on the commission for four years now, and I haven’t seen one thousandth of this interest.”

Steninger said that when he was sworn in as a county commissioner, he was sworn to defend and protect the constitution and the government. He said he commented at the time that sometimes the Constitution and the state government might not be on the same side of an issue.

“And this is a good example of that. We have to make a choice. Do we support the state government or the U.S. Constitution? It’s a pretty easy choice for me. I’m supporting the U.S. Constitution,” Steninger said to applause from the crowd.

“I think this background check is a lie,” Steninger continued. “Any sensible person doesn’t want a gun in a crazy person’s hands. And I think most of us would willingly submit to a background check if that’s what they really wanted. I think what they really want is to know who owns what gun.

“Registration is the first step to confiscation. History is littered with what happens when they take our guns away. I did a little research on this. One source estimated 56 million people were exterminated in the 20th century following gun registration and confiscation,” Steninger concluded.

“This effort to challenge this law, I don’t take this lightly,” Commissioner Demar Dahl said. “When we decide not to enforce that law, that’s an important decision. The way I made that decision was, we know what the goal is of those who want to pass this bill. At some point they want to take our guns. … They don’t just all of a sudden come out and confiscate guns. There are a lot of things that happen first, and this is one of them. And so, do we stand up now, or do we wait and stand up when they come to get the guns?”

Many people called out, “Now!”

“I love Elko County and the people that have got the courage to not let themselves be run over and stand up for the Constitution,” Dahl said.

“This isn’t the end of it,” Commissioner Cliff Eklund said. “This is just the start.”

He said there are at least two more bills being considered in the Nevada Assembly. One would restrict accessories to guns, and one is a “red flag” law which would allow guns to be confiscated based on people’s accusations, Eklund said.

Commissioner Delmo Andreozzi talked about an incident when he was young and someone tried to break into his family’s house, and he had a weapon to protect his family. Although he did not end up having to use the weapon, he said, “I shudder to think what would have happened that night had I not been armed.”

Elko County District Attorney Tyler Ingram said his responsibility is to provide a legal opinion on steps the commissioners take, and in this case his personal beliefs and his legal opinion aligned. Ingram read his statement on the resolution, saying, “The principles outlined in the Second Amendment Sanctuary County resolution are the same principles that every citizen, politician, and elected official should be prepared to protect and defend because those principles reiterate what is, and what always should be, protected by our United States Constitution and our Nevada Constitution. Any attempt to unlawfully infringe or violate our Constitutional rights should always be met with strong scrutiny. I am proud of the citizens of Elko County and the Board of Commissioners for voicing their opinions and taking a stance.”

Nevada Assemblyman John Ellison, along with Assemblyman Jim Wheeler and Randi Thompson of the Nevada Firearms Coalition, joined Tuesday’s meeting on the phone. Ellison talked about other “bad bills” which they are fighting in order to protect Second Amendment rights.

“We are with you 100 percent,” Ellison said. “We’re down here in the trenches, but we can’t do it alone.”

Wheeler said that SB 143 is “the camel’s nose under the tent.”

“We are mobilizing across our state to try to remind our governor that we are one Nevada in supporting our Constitution,” Thompson said.

“We’ve got to stand for something,” Elko City Councilman Chip Stone said at the start of the public comment session. “If we don’t, our rights and our privileges will be taken away.”

Dale Andrus recommended that people go to the Nevada legislative website and follow what is happening with the bills that are being considered.

“Sad to say, it looks like we’ve lost Nevada, but we’re not going to quit fighting,” he said.

Danielle Kohler said that on the legislative website you can put in the keyword “firearms” to keep up-to-date on relevant bills.

“I am so glad to see all these people here,” Kohler said. “This is so awesome. … But we’ve got to fight.”

“When the government wants to take away your firearms, they’re not doing it because they want to do something good for the populace,” Thomas Wolf said. “It never ends that way. It’s always something bad for the populace. Sheriff, I totally love you.”

“What’s the best way to eat an elephant?” Scott Allen asked. “One bite at a time – they’re taking away our rights.”

Former Elko County Sheriff Neil Harris said, “I’d like to take credit for what’s going on here, because I hired him,” referring to Sheriff Narvaiza.

“I want to thank you for standing up for our rights,” Gary Walker said to the Elko County commissioners at the close of the public comment period. “I want to remind Elko County and all Nevadans that Governor Bloomberg Sisolak will try to move against you guys for protecting us, so as a resident, remember, they’ve got our back, and we’ve got to have their back.”

“I’ve heard you guys say that it’s going to be hard for us,” Commissioner Eklund said. “But I think Gary pretty much sums it up. As long as you guys got our back, it ain’t going to be hard.”

Walker was referring to former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a gun-control activist who has been supportive of Gov. Sisolak and the gun control efforts in the Nevada legislature.

In a statement released March 14, Sisolak said, “My office and that of the attorney general are aware of the letters from multiple rural Nevada sheriffs regarding SB 143. While the law will not take effect until January 2020, I look forward to working with Attorney General (Aaron) Ford and local law enforcement over the next several months to review ways to enforce this law, as is the case with all other Nevada laws that elected officers are sworn to uphold.”

Hello. I have (and live) a story that must be told. No one wants to deal with me after I mention "Elko County, Nevada". It's an unwritten taboo, so it seems.
It entails 200 years of unbridled corruption, and follows up to what they are doing to me now: I'm a Political Refugee of my own home...and I still pay the property taxes. MY evidentiary documents await professional exam and consideration. A cursory review can be had here:
