    The Second Round hasn't been disproven yet, and some states are again climbing. I'm not a gambler so till I feel safer, I'll still choose the mask and gloves. Wasn't a big part of the initial problem the WHO?

    I just want to know how all these people expect respect when they are clearly disrespecting their community. I understand a man died in police custody. I also get that justice has to be served where it’s deserved. But seriously. Acting like a bunch of idiots will not get u heard. Your making yourselves look just like a lot of people are saying. So if u want respect and to be heard stop the stupid childish crap and act like true citizens and let ur voice be heard in a positive way.

    From watching some of the protests .. this is much more than George Floyd. Those rioters and looters are a disgrace to our country. What ever happened to peaceful protests?

    What I’m trying to understand is how ANY business had anything to do with this tragic event?

    You wrote: "the trick might be to never use the UC system in the first place.... " I wrote: "Are you advocating defying the governor's shutdown order and going to work? Or are you suggesting that those thrown out of work should just grin and bear it? " You wrote: "Why would anyone want to do as you are asking??? " Where in that did I ask anyone to do anything? It is you who seem to be asking folks to "...never use the UC system in the first place". My questions were intended to point out while there are alternatives to collecting unemployment, those alternatives are rather grim. Either you are being deliberately obtuse or your reading comprehension has hit new low.

    Lucky that he didn't get shot by the resident. But if I were judging his performance as if it were gymnastics, I would give him extra points for the comments.

    Meanwhile we are pushing rolloff containers full of respirator hoses, masks, gloves, etc... Luckily the distance from the seat of a D8 to the front of the blade is more like 15ft, so we’re all good

    I smiled when I saw the ducks and St. Pauli girl. When I ride by Lumberjacks in Ridgway (now Wilderness something or other) I think it should have been built where the Halton Hilton sits. The second story deck on Lumberjacks would provide a beautiful view of the Clarion. Its not uncommon nowadays to see the bald eagles flying the river. On a real good day they have the day's meal in tow.

    And how many people or businesses did the armed protesters attack? But yet the protesters in MN went beyond protesting and starting looting businesses that had NOTHING to do with the issue at hand.

    It’s always bad if a black person gets killed but they don’t care about the white people that die the same way. U ask me if a human dies in police custody then an investigation needs to be done and depending the findings then charges need to be filed. It shouldn’t matter ur race. Ur not going to get respect by acting the fool. I know this first hand. The question of why really isn’t answered. I’m sorry but if this happened here I expect every business owner to be strapped and fire at will when people are trying to steal from them.. nobody has the right to take away from anyones livelihood.

    Unlike yourself Mr High and Mighty Pompous *** many people had no choice but to depend on the UC system that our Governor failed to fix two years ago like he promised. Now people are suffering because of his arrogance and ignorance. But what do you care......

    'Silent epidemic': Obituary of mom, 28, shines light on suicide, mental health Chaylie Holmgren's mom did not want anyone else to suffer like she had after her daughter died of suicide at age 28. May 29, 2020, 6:34 AM PDT / Source: TODAY By Meghan Holohan This story discusses suicide. If you or someone you know is at risk of suicide please call the U.S. National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-8255, text TALK to 741741 or go to SpeakingOfSuicide.com/resources for additional resources. When Mindi Hoggan’s daughter Chaylie Holmgren, 28, died by suicide on May 17, Hoggan knew she didn’t want an obituary that said her daughter died suddenly. Instead, she wanted something that honored Holmgren and raised awareness about mental health. “If there’s even one person that I can reach so that (their loved ones) don’t have to feel how I feel, then I’ve done my job,” Hoggan of Logan, Utah, told TODAY. “Mental health is nothing to be ashamed of. I don't want people who are suffering to feel ashamed to ask for help.” Chaylie Holmgren was very close to her brothers Braeden and Jaxton and even worked with her younger brother at a salon in Logan, Utah. Courtesy the family of Chaylie Holmgren With the help of her cousin, Lisa B. McKinney, Hoggan wrote a moving and unvarnished tribute about her daughter and suicide. “This silent epidemic is catastrophic. If talking about it, exposing it, shouting it from the rooftops, will help even one person find a way to talk about their pain, a difference can and must be made,” the obituary reads. “Show kindness, an openness to talk, and more importantly to listen, to see, to hear without judgement. If only to save one family from the pain and anguish of losing a loved one through bringing awareness to this tragic and senseless loss of life, then our beloved Chaylie’s death will not be in vain … we cannot afford to lose another light.” Related HEALTH & WELLNESS Get a mammogram, always say 'I love you': Woman's poignant obituary offers life advice Mental health experts applauded Hoggan’s message. “This family should be saluted for their courageous approach to this epidemic,” Dr. Ken Duckworth, chief medical officer at the National Alliance on Mental Illness, told TODAY, adding that death by suicide has increased steadily every year since the 1990s. “It is a real positive to say the truth. The more light you let into the room, the less toxic it is likely to be. This is part of the human experience: despair, perfectionism, mental health, vulnerability.” Mindi Hoggan (pictured on the right) wanted daughter Chaylie Holmgren's (left) obituary to talk candidly about mental health and her daughter's death by suicide. Courtesy the family of Chaylie Holmgren Being open about mental illness helps normalize it, encouraging others to feel more comfortable speaking about it — and hopefully getting help, experts said. “It was a very powerful read," Dr. Jack Rozel, associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, told TODAY. “Acknowledging the illness that they died from and their manner of their death in a way that respects their life calls out the clinical issues and does so in a way that is compassionate and transparent as they did, takes some skill.” Sister of ER doctor who died by suicide: She ‘couldn’t help enough people’ APRIL 30, 202008 Holmgren had obsessive compulsive disorder and struggled with perfectionism. She went to counseling and took medication to manage her health. Few people knew what she was dealing with, seeing only the “vivacious” put-together young mother who made an impact on everyone she met, her family noted. When Holmgren laughed, it was hard not to join her. She loved dancing and gymnastics and volunteered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Often, she traveled to conventions focused on women’s empowerment. When someone moved to the neighborhood, she welcomed them immediately. “She was always the first person to make friends with someone,” Hoggan said. “She had the best personality and the funniest laugh and the most beautiful smile you’ve ever seen.” Chaylie Holmgren always looked happy and befriended everyone. The young mom of three appeared to be put together. Few understood that she struggled with her mental health. Courtesy the family of Chaylie Holmgren She worked as a manager at a local salon, but she truly enjoyed being a mom to her three children, daughter Londyn, 10, and sons Braykin, 6, and Brixton, 2. “She was a young mother. She had her first child at 17,” Hoggan said. “She just really took to that. She was such a good mom and she had to grow up quickly.” Holmgren was determined, fearless and outgoing. While her mom knew that she sometimes struggled, Holmgren rarely asked for help. Often, people found themselves talking with her about their problems. “She was a very good confidant,” Hoggan said. “I didn’t realize how many lives that she had touched until this happened.” The week before she died, the family enjoyed a fun Mother’s Day, laughing and playing volleyball. “She’s my only daughter and we were very, very close,” Hoggan said. “We don’t realize that the prettiest girl you know, that you might think has everything, that maybe that girl is suffering." Chaylie Holmgren's father owns a cattle ranch and she loved visiting to help out with the cows. Courtesy the family of Chaylie Holmgren Rozel said another important message shared in the obituary is how much the family adored all of Holmgren and felt no shame about her mental health. “The unequivocal statement of love and support for all people with … mental illness is an important statement. The reality is there is discrimination and stigma,” he said. “Part of breaking down the stigma is the transparency of people with lived experience with mental illnesses and suicidal behaviors or suicidal loss being out in the public.” Knowing how to talk with a loved one who has expressed suicidal thoughts or wanting to die can be tough, he said, but bringing up suicidal thoughts won’t cause people to try it. For those wondering what to say #BeThe1To provides helpful tips. “Shame is one of the things that can make it really tough for people to talk about feeling suicidal or to ask other people about feeling suicidal. But it needs to be OK to ask and it needs to be OK to express that,” Rozel said. “Listening compassionately without judgement helps people express their emotions and helps people feel safe and cared for.” Chaylie Holmgren loved being a mother to her three children and was a natural at it, her family said.Courtesy the family of Chaylie Holmgren Hoggan is stunned by the messages she’s received from strangers sharing their own experiences about loved ones dying of suicide. She said that helps her. “It’s actually comforting. I hate to hear that there are others,” she said. “Hearing from people actually makes me feel like what I tried to do is working.” SEE RELATED VIDEO ; https://www.today.com/health/chaylie-holmgren-s-obituary-shines-light-death-suicide-t182691?cid=referral_taboolafeed
