Welcome to Heather Kisselback, new exec for Prevention Council of Saratoga County

Parents can’t protect their kids from every risk, as mentioned in the earlier post about prom time. But parents need to set ground rules for such things as curfews and to make expected behaviors clear. Along with consequences.
Of course, you can't expect to start parenting two weeks before the prom. It's a lifelong challenge that starts with Day One.
Need advice along those lines? I’ve always found the nonprofit Prevention Council of Saratoga County a great resource for the community.
Judy Ekman has done so much over the last two decades to establish the Prevention Council and its offshoot, the Saratoga Partnership for Prevention, as the place to turn for education, information and hands-on programs to promote a community safe from substance abuse and other dangers.
Newly retired, Ekman will no doubt remain a resource.
I am pleased to congratulate Heather Kisselback as the newly appointed executive director. By all accounts, Kisselback has, as Prevention Council board president Michael Smith told The Saratogian, the "background, knowledge and energy" for the job.
Welcome, Heather.

You once again have refused to print my warning that the comment by Myrle14778 is a link to a Chinese porn site. If you click on the blue dots, you'll see what I mean. The last time I pointed out a porn connection in the comments I was taken to task. I don't get it.

Dear Tucker:
Thanks for the warning about the Myrtle comment. I have deleted it. The last time you complained, there was no intention of taking you to task; I just couldn't find the comment you were referring to. Appreciate your persistence.
