  • Preventing teen suicide

    According to a report released by the Surgeon General two years ago a young person commits suicide every two hours in our country.  In fact suicide now claims the lives of more adolescents than any disease or natural cause.

    It should also be noted that adolescents commit suicide at a higher rate than that of any other age group.  What is even more alarming is there are even more suicidal attempts and gestures than there are actual completed suicides.

    The group changed few items from Oldham’s ordinance, namely the license and renewal fees, and the regulatory license fee. If approved, the ordinance sets Henry County’s license and renewal fees at $400, with the regulatory fee set at 6 percent of alcohol sales.
