More Play, Cyberbullying, County Commission on Friday’s Morning Zone [AUDIO]
At 7:07AM MDT, our ‘Kids-At-Risk’ panel explores a recent article in Health Day that says, “From hide-and-seek to tearing around the neighborhood with friends, playing is one of the hallmarks of childhood. But in this era of hyper-vigilant parenting, researchers find that children in the United States have far less time to play than kids of 50 years ago, a trend that may have serious consequences for their development and mental health.”
Our School Bullying segment at 8:07 will feature Trent Anderson, Vice President of Education with Optimum Comunications who will talk with Dave Chaffin and Marvin Nash about Power to Learn, Optimum’s nationally-recognized education initiative, will be holding a special event on October 3 to teach children about the importance of Internet safety at the Boys & Girls Club of Cheyenne, featuring Mayor Richard Kaysen and State Representative Pete Illoway. Power to Learn is also donating $5,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of Cheyenne to help combat cyberbullying and support other important club programs. Power to Learn’s first Wyoming event will be held on Monday, October 3 at 4:30 p.m. at the Boys & Girls Club of Cheyenne, 1700 Snyder Avenue.
County Commissioner Gay Woodhouse will guest at 9:07. Gay will update us on a number of important issues facing Laramie County right now, including a look at the best, most efficient way to operate the new Juvenile Detention Facility soon to open at Archer. Should it be done by the Laramie County Sheriff’s Office or by a private, ‘for profit’ contractor? Also, what about the County’s interest in the land the City has considered selling to Menard’s? The City says they can’t get clear deed to the property because of the County’s claim to a portion of it, but didn’t the County forfeit that interest?
