Many residents think that leaving the garage door open a few inches during the summer months alleviates some of the extreme temperatures inside. This is not only false but it actually allows for additional heat to enter and creates an opportunity for burglars as well.
Every garage is finished with 2 wall vents to allow heat to escape. Please keep them clear, keep your garage door closed and your vehicles free of valuables and locked. If you find a neighbor’s garage door open, please notify them.
Nearly 100 community members and 14 social service providers came out to Copper Sky to honor individuals and families coping with mental illness. Erin Callinan author of "Beautifully Bipolar" was the guest speaker. Miss Maricopa Outstanding Teen, Cristaly Betancourt, assisted with a balloon release and mile walk.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month and the theme for 2015 is "Addressing Mental Health #B4Stage4." When people begin to first experience symptoms of loss of sleep, feeling tired for no reason, feeling low, anxious or hearing voices those symptoms should not be ignored in hopes they will go away. Like any other disease, we need to address these symptoms early, identify the underlying disease and plan an appropriate course of action on a path to overall health.
