JCCTCC Minutes
December 7th, 2009
WELCOME
John Rundle called the meeting to order and welcomed everyone in attendance. A sign in sheet was available at every table. We went around the room and introduced ourselves because there were a couple of new faces.

John than proceeded to discuss the Steering Committee meeting and what they had decided to look at as focuses and changes for the next year.
* First thing was that parents need to continue to be a major target population because they are big influences on their children.
* Jackson County families also need clear rules about ATOD use.
* Alcohol is the major target still because it is the number one drug of choice. It is a gateway drug and affects the most people.
* Chewing tobacco use is very high and is the form of tobacco that the committee thinks should be focused on.
* Meth is on the rise in Jackson County among adults and the committee thinks it should be a new focus. The schools are really seeing the effects on the children. It was discussed that we have some educational trainings in the county about what to look for, what to do, and where to report it.

UPDATES, REPORTS, ANNOUNCEMENTS
* Dana Michaels (J.H. Counselor) spoke about a Character Educational interactive program and website for grades 1st through 6th. A career exploration website with lots of activities and things for kids to do. Also things for the teachers and parents to do. It will be about $400.00 to do this.
* Lisa Balaun (R.V.E.S. Counselor) spoke about Character Magic Assembly which is sponsored by PBS. It is coming to Kansas in March and she was interested in it. It will be about $500.00.
-These options were shared as ideas because there is $500.00 available per school for character education.
* Wendy from NEK-TUPP discussed writing mini grants through the American Legacy Foundation which are worth $1250.00. They are due December 18th but they are not a hard grant to write. It was discussed that chewing is a big problem in Jackson County and that it would be beneficial to bring in Gruen Van Behren as a guest speaker because he is living from consequences of chewing and would be very effective. His video has been shown in the past to the coalition.

GUEST SPEAKER
Holton Community Hospital came to talk to us about what they see dealing with drugs and alcohol in the E.R. Carrie Saia and Rachel Dillon were the speakers.
* They transfer out one patient per month to Topeka with a drug or alcohol problem that requires in care treatment.
* They see about 150 people per month and 7-12 people are transferred out and of those 7-12 one of them has an alcohol or drug problem.
* Kanza does come in and help drug or alcohol patients if it is outpatient.
* When the patient is checked in to the hospital each one is asked about alcohol and drug use.
* Also it was reported that when patients are asked what is their recreational drug of choice it is becoming common for them to state that it is Meth. (more than in the past)

COMMITTEES
The three committees met for about 15 minutes to go over different items coming up. Each committee reported out at the end of the meeting.
* Marketing-Decided they are going to get 10 parent focused banners to go in places where parents will see them. Some places named were the pool, ball diamonds, boys and girls club, and the rec center. The one for the parents is going to say something like “Think underage drinking doesn’t affect your kid’s brain? Think again.” Then the one for elementary school age is going to say something like “Stand up against peer pressure.”
Policy- Looked at the Kansas mentoring site for taining for staff on meth use/what to look for…. They don’t have many details but probably looking at about one hour training for a school in service and one for people in Jackson County who make house visits. The committee will continue these plans next month.
* Prevention – Writing a mini grant to bring in Guen Von Behren to speak at schools. Also doing Sticker Shock Campaign activity again and using the remaining stickers from last year. Some stickers are still on cooler doors from last year. It is planned for December 29th by JCYC students, leaders, Holton Police Dept., ABC and other volunteering coalition members. Deanne will send out letters to retail outlets and information to JCYC leaders.
NEXT MEETING
– The next meeting will be on January 4th, 2010 at 12:00 p.m. (lunch will be ready at 11:45) at EUM Church 227 Pennsylvania Holton.

(there were 29 coalition members present)
