Our job has been put into high gear, and we are ready to step up to the plate to make a difference and look forward to seeing you at functions in the coming months and our 6th Annual Walk and our 2nd Annual Cruise-in for a Cure.

In the meantime, let’s not give up hope for a cause and a cure to be found. We need to service the children that are afflicted and educate the community as a whole that this is an epidemic that is deserving of your love, understanding, and patience. These children can learn and function in our society. They need a method of teaching, the support of everyone, and the confidence that they are just as important as the next person.

Thank you on behalf of the Autism Project of Southern Ohio: Wendy Potts, President

Support A Cure for Autism

Filed under: AUTISM,Uncategorized — tkm April 22, 2007 @ 16:0 pm

Saturday, April 21, 2007, was a great day for the 1st annual Cruise in and the 5th Annual Autism Walk for a cure for Autism.

At this time I would like to show my appreciation for all their hard work and time spent by the volunteers, especially Wendy Potts. People like you are extraordinary.

WPAY spent the day at Spartan Stadium promoting this project on their airwaves – Thanks to WPAY 104.2 and Josh (support this station, they support the community).

 

First I would like to show a video of the cars and bikes that participated in this event (due to the tremendous turnout the video may take a few minutes to load). Enjoy.

A representative from the City with a special message was Bob Mollette, 3rd Ward Councilman.

I saved this story for last. Vinnie is a student at Portsmouth High School. When Vinnie was 4 years old he was diagnosed with Autism. He was told he would never lead a normal life, but his parents never gave up. In the video below you will see the car Vinnie and his father rebuilt together; Vinnie now even has his driver’s license. He also told me he would be attending the PHS Prom Saturday night getting there in his car (but his father would be driving him to the prom).

I for one am very proud of Vinnie and his parents. I am also pleased to hear about the support he has been given by teachers in the Portsmouth schools; Vinnie would like to be an Engineer when he grows up. With faith, support and hope we can achieve great things.

Thanks Vinnie for your story!

Watch the video and I hope it means as much to you as it did to me.

American Ambulance was also there to show their support for a cure for Autism.

 

I know I have missed many individuals that supported this event. Contact me for additions and corrections.

Thank You

PERSONAL WEB LOG (or BLOG)

Filed under: Uncategorized — tkm April 15, 2007 @ 10:0 am

A personal web log (or blog) is a web-based space for writing and editing information. These personal blogs are managed through a web browser and are immediately and publicly available on the Internet.

A personal blog is administered by an individual who compiles information, documents, and lists of links to personally appealing material, mixed together with information and personal expressed viewpoints. Personal blogs are used for storage and safekeeping of information, documents, ideas etc. of the individuals’ research, experiences, observations, advice, impressions, opinions, analysis, notes, and comments across a whole range of subjects. Personal blogs maintain a collection of material in an orderly structured thinking process, and provide a technique to easily modify currently collected information with any future significant facts, data, documents and experiences. Personal blogs can be a continually updated resource that grows over time and provides an array of potential possibilities for disseminating and educating through blogging communication.

There are advantages to personal blogs, particularly the point of view on shared information and experiences. Visitors can read the logs, and in this respect, acquire and learn from the administrator’s resources and experiences. The chronology of the blog (the day-by-day linking of entries with dates) provides the documentation with the internal logic; an easy way to organize information.

I believe and support what personal blogs are bringing to Portsmouth, Ohio:

TRANSPARENCY, ACCOUNTABILITY, AND INFORMED VOTERS

Thanks for taking the time to care about Portsmouth, Ohio and for wanting to be informed.
