Lewis For high school students, excitement is in the air come the end of the school year. While graduation might be just over the horizon, prom is foremost on the minds of many students. Many schools celebrate prom with a dance and dinner on campus or at a rented venue. Prom is a chance for students to socialize and reminisce before graduating from high school. Prom can be a celebration of past friendships and a way to make new memories, but it should be remembered for all of the right reasons. By playing it safe, prom can be an experience students cherish for the rest of their lives. Both students and parents can take steps to ensure prom night is as safe as it is fun. • Be an involved parent. Involved parenting is the best way to make prom night safe. Parents should take an active roll in understanding prom plans and set ground rules. Too often parents contribute to poor prom decisions, such as setting the tone for the night with toasts or encouraging potentially dangerous behavior by organizing hotel stays or large parties. Parents should have a detailed itinerary of their children’s prom night plans, including schedules, who will be accompanying kids to the prom and any post-prom activities. Request check-in calls or text messages, and set a curfew. • Avoid scare tactics. In the weeks leading up to prom, school districts and police departments often stage mock automobile crashes to illustrate the dangers of distracted driving or driving while intoxicated. But studies have shown these tactics do not have long-term benefits. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ National Institutes of Health found that programs relying on scare tactics to prevent children and adolescents from engaging in certain behaviors are not only ineffective, but also may have adverse effects. Being open and honest with students and treating them like adults may be a more effective way to get through to them. Let them know you are available at all hours if they do not feel comfortable in a situation or need a ride home. • Provide adult supervision. The prom and after-parties should be supervised by responsible adults. Although it may not eliminate all opportunities for risky behavior, adequate supervision will serve as a deterrent. • Encourage students to think before acting. Many students view prom as a deadline for certain perceived rites of passage. They may believe prom is the time to drink or try drugs for the first time or to go further intimately with a boyfriend or girlfriend. Parents should encourage kids to think before acting, letting them know that prom is not a night to throw caution to the wind and experiment. Exciting Styles for Exciting Prom-Goers! 14 N.

We should no longer associate piercing and tattooing in teens with their being at an increased risk for using tobacco, alcohol, or drugs. Nowadays teenagers see body art such as piercing or tattooing as a way to express themselves and their identities. Sometimes teens use body art to fit in better with their peers, or to signify independence as they approach adulthood. Please recognize that state law requires teens under 18 to have their parent’s permission to get a tattoo or piercing. In addition, most tattoo parlors or piercing salons require a parent or caregiver to be present for the procedure. In some cases, vendors give piercings, and less commonly tattoos, without such permission. An unlicensed vendor who does not follow the law or health precautions can put your teen at risk for medical complications. Health complications after a body piercing or tattoo can include bleeding, pain, infection, or transmission of HIV and viral hepatitis. Large bumpy scars called keloids, or an allergic reaction to metal or ink, can also develop. Talk with, not at, your teenager if they are thinking about a • • • tattoo or piercing. Ask why they are thinking about it and whether or not they are aware of the medical risks. Make sure they think before they ink, since it is very hard and expensive to remove a tattoo. A henna tattoo may be a good compromise since it is not permanent; it only lasts for weeks. If you’re going to consent to the procedure for your teen, make sure your teenager’s immunizations are up to date. Help find a place that is state-regulated and practices good infection control before, during, and after the piercing or tattoo. They should use new, disposable gloves, as well as sterilized needles and tattoo inks. Finally, remember this: who a person is on the inside is what matters. Not what they look like on the outside. Your pierced or tattooed teens will still need your unconditional love and support. Remember to focus on the things your teen does well rather than what they have done to their body. Hopefully, tips like these will stick with you when you are concerned that your teenager wants a piercing or tattoo.

The draft plan is online at: under “Latest News.” As Vermont’s population grows older, how we are aging is evolving, and the needs and desires of the Baby Boomer generation are different than those before them. With advances in medicine, higher rates of education, and improvements in housing and public health among other factors, we are living longer, with average life expectancy now 80.5 in Vermont, and many living well into their 80s and 90s. A cohort of older Vermonters have multiple chronic conditions and complex medical needs and will likely need significant supports from family caregivers and long-term care programs; and a growing cohort of Vermonters are aging in good health, physically and mentally active, working longer, and seeking engagement Classifi ed Deadline Is MONDAY Before 10AM with the world long after so-called retirement. No matter where we are on the spectrum of aging, how can we make Vermont a place where everyone can truly age well? We welcome your input! The public comment period began Monday, April 9, 2018 and is open through Friday, April 27, 2018. Written comments can be submitted electronically to Angela Smith-Dieng at our State Unit on Aging at: angela. or by mail to: Angela Smith- Dieng, Department of Disabilities, Aging and Independent Living, Adult Services Division, 280 State Drive HC 2 South, Waterbury, VT 05671-0270. Please direct any questions to Angela at (802) 241-0309. An in-person session for the public to provide comments will be held as part of the DAIL Advisory Board Meeting on Thursday, April 14, 2018 at 12:30p.m. in the Cherry Conference Room at the Waterbury State Office Complex. All are welcome. Please RSVP by April 11 to Liz Perreault at liz. or (802) 241-0362. • • • The Voice of the Business Community continued from page 12 We are very concerned about S.197 which would establish strict, joint and several liability for property damage and impacts to human health that result from the release of harmful substances. It would also create a private right of action for medical monitoring. We believe that the measure is overreaching and could have a chilling effect on future business investment in Vermont. We support H.919 which is geared toward spurring workforce development in the state. It would make the Career Pathways Coordinator position in the Agency of Education permanent, establish pilot projects to extend career and technical education programs to younger students, create a threeyear outreach program to stakeholders, endorse the work of the Vermont Talent Pipeline Program and better align workforce training opportunities across state government over time. We support the senate-passed S.204, which we believe will “level the playing field” for those in the travel and tourism industry. Under the bill, home-based bed and breakfast vendors would need to register and agree to certain practices in order to rent rooms to the public on or after Jan. 1, 2019. The business would be required to self-certify that it meets health and safety standards and that it knows it must collect and remit state and local rooms and meals taxes. Fire safety inspections by authorities having jurisdiction would be expected, and local communities could impose more restrictive local ordinances. As the legislature marches toward adjournment, The Chamber will continue to make its voice heard on behalf of the business community.
