Healthy Tekoa is providing two very important trainings on suicide prevention
for the community. First, on April 12, at 5 p.m. at the Tekoa Library, there will
be QPR (question persuade and refer) suicide prevention training for people
who want to have quick skills to help those who might be suicidal. This is a
one-hour class, and drop-ins are welcome. Then, on May 7, from 8 to 5 p.m.
at Tekoa High School, there will be Youth Mental Health First Aid. This is an
amazing course that introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs
of mental health concerns. Mental Health First Aid allows for early detection
and intervention by teaching participants about the signs and symptoms of
specific illnesses like anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder,
eating disorders, and addictions. The program offers concrete tools and
answers key questions like “What can I do?” and “Where can someone
find help?” Participants need to preregister by calling Diane Harp at
284-2781 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Lunch is provided, and
clockHours are available.

Messages from the Mayor—
Welcome to spring! It’s baseball/softball weather—lots of rain, wind and
First, let me introduce you to your new councilpersons. Carol Sturman, who
was on the council several years ago, was selected by the council and will be
our liaison with the cemetery. Alyssa Heagy was also selected. Alyssa, with
children in our elementary and pre-school, is new to our community. She
will now become our council’s financial overseer. Congratulations to both
ladies, and I have to say that we had four very qualified candidates…our
community is fortunate to have such quality individuals interested in our
As I mentioned last month, I directed Mike Bogenreif to
begin checking yards for needless debris that is noted in our junk ordinance
and dogs running loose.
The council formally approved of applying for a
community center grant. Included in the grant is the construction of a
handicapped restroom, better lighting, a forced air heating unit, some
structural work, and a ramp that connects the community center
to the theatre. We are requesting $48,000 for the project.
For those wondering
what happened to our noon whistle, it is temporarily out of commission. We
ordered a new timing device; it will be installed by a person who works on
community siren systems. The guy is busy, so we are simply on his waiting
list. By the way, cell service is close!! How close? I believe I can say any day
now as opposed to any month now!! When you become my age you have to

discussing it at our next council meeting. We already have a fairly
comprehensive dog ordinance, but now we address animals such as cats,
horses, cows, and even pot-bellied pigs!!
Our next meeting is April 18.
