  • Valor7: Actually no it is not, a dependable Revenue stream will not come on line until the 4th quarter of 2017 so 2018 budget will be up in the air, not quite sure what they will have. By 2019 budget all will be well.

  • Valor7: I could have worded that better, we talked details, options, the pros and cons of each, in  order to arrive at the best ballot language to present to the voters. Hope that makes this clearer.

  • Valor7: sorry about the typos still working with just one arm in action
    April 13, 2016, 01:10:42 PM
  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

Domestic violence concerns need to become everyone’s business

Victim Advocate Coordinator Natalie McCart
Domestic violence concerns need to become everyone’s business
PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. (Oct. 25, 2010) — Domestic violence is a problem in every city, county, state, and military installation in this country. Spousal and intimate partner abuse is considered the single worst cause of injury to women in the United States. According to Department of Justice statistics, every 15 seconds in the United States a husband, ex-husband, or intimate partner batters a woman, resulting in over four million incidents of domestic violence being reported each year against women alone. In addition to these staggering numbers, the National Family Violence Survey funded by the National Institute of Mental Health also found that nearly two million men were assaulted by a wife or girlfriend annually. Once a secret kept among families, domestic violence is now recognized as a serious crime that cuts across all racial, economic, social, and age barriers.

I am so glad to see your article included men.  For so many years men have also been the victim of abuse, but because of how society views males as the "stronger" of the sexes, many men kept quiet about the abuse.  One of my best friends is a counselor for people who suffer abuse at the hands of their partners, and even children.  She told me that I would be shocked to learn how many men are the victims.

Hi, Kari... Natalie McCart (whose father, Gary Carmack, submitted this as a guest column rather than his regular paramedic's corner column) may not see this note. If you want to make sure she sees this, go to my Facebook page, linked on the bottom of this note, look up Natalie as one of my "friends," and send her a message. I'm deliberately not posting her Facebook link directly to make sure that people who want to find her have to go through some steps to find her, but that they can do so if they want to send her a message badly enough.

BTW, the amount of husband-beating that goes on in the military is significant. That used to surprise me -- after all, I thought, what woman in her right mind would dare try to beat up a husband with combat training? However, there are women who know they can beat up their military husband and he can't respond physically because the Army takes domestic violence very seriously, as it should. Sometimes working hard to fix one problem that badly needs to be addressed has unexpected side effects.

Domestic violence and abuse is evil no matter who is doing it. I've seen too many police reports -- some of them involving prominent community leaders and military officers with really significant brass on their shoulders -- to think that money, power, or gender makes people immune to fits of rage using their fists or feet.

I am so glad to see your article included men.  For so many years men have also been the victim of abuse, but because of how society views males as the "stronger" of the sexes, many men kept quiet about the abuse.  One of my best friends is a counselor for people who suffer abuse at the hands of their partners, and even children.  She told me that I would be shocked to learn how many men are the victims.

I was a victim of domestic violence and it was tough getting anyone to help or even listen to you.  I am glad this taboo crime is being talked about - and hope that these figures drop soon.

Melissacaroline, in this day and age, there are so many organizations that can help.  I went through it in the 70's, and I can tell you even the PD at the time was NOT educated about it, and the majority could care less.  I still carry the scar from my X, and when the police arrived, with me bleeding like a stuck pig, the response was, "what did you do to make him do that?".  There were no shelters to go to, and even my visit to the ER, did not do anything more, than have them "fix" me, and note it in my medical records. 

Women, further back, not only suffered the abuse from their partners, neighbors weren't very compassionate either, and the women were made to feel shamed.  I've heard some real horror stories from some of the much older ladies.......

Any woman, man, or child who is suffering from abuse, should have a safe place to go, more public notice should be made, so they do know where to go, who to call, and how to help themselves when faced with such crimes.

Have you ever walked in to a dept store or a restraunt and seen a black eye or a person (male or female) that cowers or has lost the sparkle in their eyes?  I have, more times than what i would care to recall.  I just want to take them home, give them a soft place to fall and listen.  It breaks my heart.  My mother was in a car accident a few years ago.  She is in her 70's.  Her nose was broke and within days following the accident, both of her eyes turned a ugly shade of black and blue.  She looked like someone had beaten her.  My father took her to her Dr appt and he told me that several people glared at him, several people moved away from them, several people exchanged glances and they even pointed and murmured between each other.  But only ONE person in the entire building, asked my mother if she was being abused.  My father of course, was horrified.  This is an example of how people today, are afraid to get involved, afraid to step in.  The victim of the abuser, is generally too embarrassed, too fearful to say anything.  For fear of whats to come.  In this confused, violent world in which we live in today, the last thing we need, is to be beatin on the very ones that we profess to love.
