August 3rd there will be a benefit dinner for him at the Knights of Columbus Bldg from 5-7pm. Menu will be Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Baked Beans, Potato Salad, Dessert and a Drink for 7.00 and additional donations will be accepted as well. EVERY dime given will go directly to Kevin.

Shout out of the week…It seems like a cliche, but you have to give it to the people running the Kansas Wheat Festival. Yeah, that’s you and your crew, Shelly.I’m not sure very many local people appreciate how good this festival is for a town Wellington’s size. Kanza Days in Winfield is no longer an annual event and Derby Days was postponed in 2013.But the Kansas Wheat Festival is stronger than ever. Good work guys! 2. Kevin Beggs situation…I have not received any concrete medical updates since the initial story concerning Kevin Beggs, a Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad employee, who was involved in a gruesome accident Tuesday morning.I’ve received several reports from third party sources, but due to the conflicting nature of these reports, I will not provide any information, unless it comes directly from the family.Sumner Newscow and Page Property Management have decided to donate the Kansas Wheat Festival Medallion winnings toward the children of Kevin Beggs for immediate expense purposes. We will be opening an account at the Bank of Commerce and people can make contributions there.In my more than 20 years of journalism in the Wellington area, I can’t remember there being this overwhelming sense of support and love for an individual and his family as with the Beggs. This goes back to the old adage “you reap what you sow.” Obviously, Beggs has been a significant part of the community for so long that it feels like he is one of our family to so many people.Beggs has been involved with many things in the community, but for me his legacy is with the Wellington Regent Theater. Beggs was a co-owner of the Regent for a couple of years in the early 2000s. The original Regent closed in the late 1990s, when a poorly run company from Newton came into Wellington and opened “Crusader 6” in competition, that not only closed within 12 months, but closed the Regent in the process. Beggs and his family took the initiative a few years later to refurbish the Regent Theater. That’s a heady proposition for an individual family. Small town movie theaters don’t make money these days and really haven’t for years. Heck, there is talk about closing the Barron Theater in Pratt – and Pratt is most certainly further from Wichita than Wellington (see story here).The Beggs family ran the Regent for a couple of years, but closed it.Luckily, J.C. Long, Jerry Fike and Colby Zeka among others took the initiative to re-open the theater four years ago and has revived it with a digital projector. But would the theater have been reopened had it not been for the refurbishing effort of the Beggs a decade earlier? I’m not sure.It may have been too tough of a financial undertaking all at once for the civic leaders.So next weekend when you are viewing Despicable Me2 in the Regent’s Digital Projector Screen glory, secretly thank Kevin Beggs and go out and buy another box of popcorn. Commentary by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Five Cueball thoughts for July 14, 2013… 1. Shop talk…Sumner Newscow broke the 20,000 visitor a week threshold for the first time in its 23-month history. Incredible since we just broke the 15,000 visitor mark just last April. The traffic was so high, the site crashed for an hour Friday morning.Since Friday’s crash, some people have complained that when they log onto the site they are still getting a “Startlogic – this site is suspended” notice. Obviously, you no longer have that issue if you are reading this.But for those who still are or in the future here’s what to do. Yes, I’m venturing into “I don’t know what I’m talking about but I’ll try explaining it to you anyway,” territory, so bear with me….Your computer has a cache which is a component that stores data so that in future requests that data can serve you faster. So when we crashed Friday and then rebooted, your computer might have held on to the data of the previously crashed site. Some did, some didn’t. In order to get Sumner Newscow back on your computer,  you must reboot a new page. There are several ways of doing this. One is to do a right-click and reload simultaneously. Another is to go to “Google” and relink the site from the search engine. You can also switch browsers from say Internet Explorer to Firefox.One of the more perplexing things I have found, is it only affects certain computers and not others. I’ve been told that at a business site, my site will load on one computer but on an adjacent computer next to it, it won’t.Running this website is a lot of fun, except for technology. 4. Wellington Heat brawl…The Wellington Heat and Derby Twins made headlines last week with a baseball brawl in an NBC game in Derby. The specifics to what led to the confrontation can be found here.My view? Honestly, whatever. A baseball brawl involving 18 to 21-year-olds shouldn’t garner that much attention, other than provide a few moments of entertainment to the fans.But what struck me most was the Derby third baseman/catcher Drew Luther, who came out of the dugout and leveled Wellington Heat player Tony Piazza, who was approaching the pitcher.Obviously, Luther, is confused. He’s donning a baseball uniform. Shouldn’t he be playing football? That’s quite a tackle. 3. Medallion…OK, let’s lighten this column up a lot and talk about something insignificant like the Wellington Medallion Hunt.Let me reiterate for the 128,412th time. I have nothing to do with the clues nor did I know where the Medallion was until the last hunt day. But I am a proud sponsor of the event, and love the people running it. And this year’s Medallion Hunt kicked booty because you didn’t find it!For me it’s an event that keeps giving. We’ve been hunting Medallions for over 20 years and it never fails to deliver insignificant controversies. For that, we newspaper reporters thank you.Also, where else are you going to learn about the word “Tintinnabulum?”last_img read more

In August 2015 Dr Mona HannaAttisha was having

first_imgIn August 2015, Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha was having a glass of wine in her kitchen with two friends, when one friend, a water expert, asked if she was aware of what was happening to the water in Flint, Mich.Hanna-Attisha, a pediatrician in Flint, knew that the city had changed its water source the previous year. Instead of channeling water from the Great Lakes, residents were now drinking water from the nearby Flint River. She had been aware of some problems with bacteria after the switch, but she thought everything had been cleared up.Her friend warned otherwise: “She said, ‘Mona, the water isn’t being treated properly. It’s missing something called corrosion control. … Without that corrosion control, there is going to be lead,’ ” Hanna-Attisha remembers.The possibility that the city’s drinking water had been tainted by lead raised alarms in Hanna-Attisha; exposure to lead can result in long-term cognitive and behavioral problems, especially in children.As Hanna-Attisha began reviewing her patients’ medical record, she noticed that the percentage of children with elevated lead levels had increased after the water switch. But when she shared her data at a hospital press conference, government officials tried to discredit her.”The state said that I was an unfortunate researcher, that I was causing near-hysteria, that I was splicing and dicing numbers,” Hanna-Attisha says. “It’s very difficult when you are presenting science and facts and numbers to have the state say that you are wrong.”But Hanna-Attisha refused to give up. Instead, she spearheaded efforts to publicize and address the water crisis in Flint. She writes about her experiences in the book What the Eyes Don’t See. “This is a story of resistance, of activism, of citizen action, of waking up and opening your eyes and making a difference in our community,” she says. “I wrote this book to share the terrible lessons that happened in Flint, but more importantly, I wrote this book to share the incredible work that we did, hand in hand with our community, to make our community care about our children.”Interview HighlightsOn how the Flint water crisis began Flint was in a near-bankruptcy state, really suffering from crisis for years, if not decades before this water crisis. In Michigan, if you’re in financial dire straits, the state can come in and really usurp democracy. So in 2011 Flint became under the control of state-appointed financial emergency management, and that emergency manager’s job was austerity. It was ostensibly save money no matter what the cost.They decided that the water that we had been getting for half a century from the Great Lakes — fresh pretreated Lake Huron water that we had been buying from Detroit — was too expensive. We would start drawing water from the local Flint River until a new pipeline to the Great Lakes was to be built. So the move to the Flint River was to be a temporary move. …This was all done to save money, to cut costs, with no, no regard for public health or children’s health. The folks who grew up in Flint know the history of the Flint River. We are a legacy industrial community. The Flint River has actually caught on fire twice in the past. The corrosion or the impact of the water crisis was not the Flint River’s fault. The Flint River probably would have been OK, not ideal, if it was treated properly. The greatest irony is that the treatment chemical, the corrosion control, would only have cost $80 to $100 a day. That’s all it would’ve cost to properly treat this water. Yet that was never put in this water. The pump to install that treatment was actually never installed, so there never even was an intent to treat this water properly.On how lead is a “silent pediatric epidemic” The consequences of lead exposure is something we don’t readily see. It impacts, at a population level, cognition, so actually drops the IQ of a population of children, shifting that IQ curve to the left where you have more children who need special education services, less gifted kids. It impacts behavior — increasing the likelihood of things like attention deficit disorder. It has been linked to impulsivity. It has been linked to violence and even to criminality. So lead exposure has these lifelong cognitive and behavioral consequences that you do not see right away.On her approach to treating children exposed to lead Our response in Flint has been very proactive and preventative, because we cannot ethically wait to see the consequences of lead poisoning, of lead exposure, so we have put into place multiple, multiple interventions that we know that will promote children’s brain development and limit the impact of this crisis. We can’t take away lead — I wish I could I prescribe a magic pill or an antidote to take away lead poisoning; there is no such thing. But we can do a lot to limit children’s exposure to mitigate the impact of this crisis.On whether the people of Flint can safely bathe in the water A lot of people had concerns, especially early on, with bathing and showering. We had bacteria in the water, then we had a lot of chlorine in the water, which irritated people’s skin and eyes. People had rashes and hair loss and they’d take a bath and up to the water line their kids would break out in rashes. We didn’t really know why people had these rashes. Lead per se does not cause skin issues. The [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] actually came in and did a huge rash investigation and what they noted was that yeah, people had more skin issues, but we don’t know why. There was a lot of stuff in this water that could have irritated people’s skin. So that is a case-by-case basis, deciding if you can bathe, if you can shower. For some people, it’s fine; for some people it still causes irritation.On the quality of Flint’s water todayFlint is still in a state of public health emergency. The people of Flint are still recommended to drink filtered water or bottled water. Our water quality has dramatically improved since the onset of this crisis; however, Flint is embarking on something that no other city is doing: We are replacing our damaged lead pipes. We were on this corrosive untreated water for 18 months and that ate up our infrastructure. So those pipes are being replaced and that takes time. We’ve replaced about 6,000 of those damaged lead pipes, but there’s about 9,000 of those pipes that still need to be replaced. Until then, if the people have not had their pipes replaced, they need to be [drinking] filtered or bottled water. …[Flint is] one of the poorest cities in the country. Until recently the state was paying for bottled water, and that ended a few weeks ago, so now it’s being supported by churches and nonprofits like the United Way.On how the Flint water crisis exacerbates the “toxic stress” the city’s residents already faceGrowing up in poverty is a toxic stress. Being exposed to violence, lack of nutrition, unsafe places to play — all of these are toxic stresses. And now recently, with the incredible science of brain development, we’ve learned that all this repetitive stress and trauma for children impacts their entire life course trajectory in a very graded and predictable way.The more of these adversities you have — especially really early in life during this period of critical brain development, this prenatal or preschool period — the more of these toxicities you have, be it lead exposure or be it poverty or family separation, the more likely that you are going to grow up to be unhealthy and have more chronic diseases.In the original study on [adverse childhood experiences], it actually showed an impact on mortality. If you had six or more of these ACEs, these adverse childhood experiences, your mortality dropped 20 years. Your life expectancy dropped 20 years. Our kids in Flint already had a decreased life expectancy. Their life expectancy in the Flint ZIP code is 15 years less than the life expectancy of an adjacent ZIP code. So we were a community that was already rattled with these toxic stresses.Sam Briger and Mooj Zadie produced and edited the audio of this interview.
