Family Talk

Tonight, the Central Carolina Jaycees hosted FAMILY TALK at the Boys & Girls Club of Sanford/Lee County. FAMILY TALK is designed to help parents open up the lines of communication with their children to help prevent teen and pre-teen drinking.

Darla Cole, head resource officer for Lee County Schools, did a fantastic job of addressing a crowded room of elementary and middle school students, as well as some parents. She gave a dynamic and interactive talk about the dangers of drinking and how children can battle peer pressure. The kids had a great time trying out beer goggles and practicing different ways to say “No” when their friends or acquaintances pressure them to try alcohol.

    Blog editor,
    As you know, unemployment is now at 13% in Lee County and is expected to get worse. On the e-Lee Dispatch we have prepared a current job listings page that uses a sophisticated search engine and RSS technology to identify available up to date job listings in 29 categories. This link goes directly to the job listing site so that it is not necessary to read the main blog to use it.
    On behalf of the unemployed, I am asking you to mention this link and list it on your site if you are comfortable in doing so. Feel free to leave any feedback as a comment at our main site.
