April is Alcohol Awareness Month. What does that really mean? What can I really do to help my child make good and critical decisions in their vulnerable years? It can get overwhelming when the youth are inundated with pro-alcohol social media ads, commercials and at sporting events. Remember your children watch everything you do, you hold the greatest influence over them regarding their decision process, not me. Lead by example; make a point to not drink alcohol while taking them to a sporting event. Take full advantage of your time together by sending a non-verbal message to them that you can enjoy life and the people around you without alcohol and drugs. They watch everything you do. Be the hero in their life.

    So, the murder was in 1989 and supposedly happened on the Portland waterfront
    in back of the Dry Dock Tavern. They were certain they got the right person. I had thought instantly it must be someone like Jack the Ripper. I had just bought a copy
    of London detective Donald Rumbelow’s book on Jack the Ripper from the bargain
    table over at Bookland in Mill Creek. But it turned out a little later that I was wrong.
    Now 25 years later it turns out I was not wrong. Hehehehehe! The real Boston
    Strangler is still out there. It wasn’t Albert DeSalvo. The Gardner Museum robbery
    was just the next year on St. Patrick’s Day. Then there’s that Sarah Cherry case.
