As mentioned last week, we will be breaking for the Thanksgiving holiday Tuesday after school. I hope each of you has the , opportunity over the next week to reflect upon the many reasons you have to be thankful. Here is a short list of the many reasons I have to be ehankful ..... I'm thankful to live in a small community with people willing to help young people reach their full potential through their time, talents and financial support. I'm thankful to work with teachers and staff members who are dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of their students. I'm thankful to have the opportunity to watch boys and girls mature into young men and women who are ready to go out on their own. I'm also thankful for a loving husband and a supportive family that lives near by. May each of you have the blessed Thanksgiving that you deserve, and may you be able to take time to count your blessings, also! .Ih History of the Thanksgiving parade Thousands of people line the streets of midtown Manhattan every year to catch a glimpse of the balloons and performers marching in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Millions more will tune in to watch it on televisiorL The Macy's parade is inter- twined with Thanksgiving, making it as much a part of the holiday as turkey and pumpkin pie. Historians believe the parade was instituted by European immigrants who made up the majority of employees at the retail giant Macy's. In the 1920s, employees who were now proud Americans wanted to celebrate with tradi- tions that were similar to traditions in Europe. This included a parade down the streets. Animals were borrowed from the Central Park Zoo, bands played and marchers wore differ- ent costumes. In 1927, concern for children lining the parade route led parade officials to replace live animals with the signature helium bal- loons people now know and love. A dragon and Felix the Cat were some of the first balloons. During World War II, the parade was put on hiatus, as the rubber for the balloons and the helium was donated to the war effort. The parade resumed in 1945 and was televised only in New York. The 1947 film "Miracle on 34th Street" made the parade even more popular. NBC televised the parade nationwide the following year, drawing viewers from all over the country. Are we ready? BY DOUG CLEGG - SOUTHWEST DISTRICT HEALTH Over the past several days we have watdhed images of unprecedented devastation within a geographic area that was well prepared for dealing with disasters. Yet, due to the scale of damage incurred by Hurricane Sandy and her collision with two weather systems coming in from the North and West--first responders, National Guard, municipalities, hospitals and transportation providers were stretched beyond their well-planned capabilities. As recovery efforts begin we should note that even in an area that spends a great deal of time preparing for disasters, things didn't go as planned. Over the last several days we have seen images of large portions of the population without basic services.., and now, we are being told this may continue for weeks. We have seen images of elderly residents trapped in large tenements, with dwindling resources and no help in sight other than neighbors and families who may be faced with the same fate. It is not because Emergency Responders and local disaster managers have abandoned them; it is because in any disaster the first 72 hours are crucial to ensure all is done to save lives. We, as citizens need to take responsibility for helping ourselves and our neighbors during the initial stages of a disaster. We need to prepare ourselves, our loved ones, our pets, and our communities to ensure emergency responders can treat those who are in the most urgent need first and not add to their burden. We need to plan for the worst...or, at least have enough supplies to carry us through the first few days. Being prepared can help save lives, protect property, and can increase your resiliency for recovery. The more you know about what to do in an emergency, the more confident and secure you will feel in your abilities to survive a disaster. While the images of Hurricane Sandy are still fresh in our minds, I ask you to visit www.ready. gov and take the time to prepare. This website will provide you with information on preparing for disasters and building a readiness kit. You may also consider becoming a volunteer in emergency preparation for your community as a member of the Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) at http://, Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), or American Red Cross. Also, you may visit Southwest District Healths website for more information on preparedness at www. Living in Idaho we tend to become complacent because of our lack of major catastrophic events, thus we often take preparedness too lightly. One day the big one may hit us. Prepare NOW. Be ready and don't be caught without the minimum resources to make it through that first 72 hours Death Notice James "Mac" McFadden Jim McFadden, age 89 of Council, died November 18, 2012 at the VA Hospital in Boise.
