Futures going up in

Smoking is an old habit, but it is
becoming a new habit for teenagers
and. it is not a habit of which to be
Over 34 percent of the teenagers
between the ages of 12 and 18
smoke. Forty-four percent of these
smokers are boys and 56 percent
are girls. These percentages get
worse each year.
Today, people don't put enough
emphasis on stopping teenage smok
ing. Instead, people worry more
about getting teenagers to quit other
serious drugs. Thus, smoking is
forgotten in the shadows of those
drugs. Still, the emphasis on the
other drugs should not be any less.
Instead, smoking should be put on
the same level of seriousness.
Smoking causes respiratory pro-
., blems, causing coughing, wheezing
and shortness ol breath. Also, smok
ing can interfere with a teen's abil
ity to perform at home or in school.
. Many teens smoke to relax and
relieve themselves of tensions in
stressful situations or when ner
; vous. This is not good, because the
teen uses smoking to calm or relax
themselves, instead of trying to
solve the problems themselves. Thus,
a teen will become addicted to
jsmoking, relying on cigarettes to
Snake "them feel better". But when '
they don't have a cigarette, it adds
to their stress, causing the teen
more tension and making the situa
tion harder to cope with.

Friends and family (parents) have

Friends, however, have a greater
influence on getting a teen to start
smoking. Peer pressure is one of
the main things a teen suffers from.
Through peer pressure a teen will
do any thing to be accepted socially.
So. when peers exhibit pressure, a
teen is likely to start smoking.
Quitting is the best solution to
the problem. But quitting is hard.
Teenage girls seem to have a more
difficult time quitting and remain
ing smoke-free than boys. This is
due to the girls turning to eating in
place of smoking. This causes them
to gain weight. So, the girls will

20. What arc privileged communi

daily in our dealings with other
people, police, courts as well as
the tribal government. Some
answers will change very little
over a period of time while oth
ers change drastically depend
ing on the circumstances.
I intend to provide an educa
tional type setting in addressing
the community's inquiries about
our laws. Our laws, more than
any, affect the daily activities
to choose. This is exhibited ever
so clearly at the conclusion of
every jury trial. The people decide
on what is acceptable and what
is not acceptable behavior. Those
decisions are carried forward
and applied to other like cir
cumstances in applying the law
in the community.
We would ask that all topics
or concerns about the law be
forwarded to the Spilyay office,
attention: Tribal Jurisprudence.
The following week's topic will
be determined by popular request
or at the discretion of the Spi
lyay staff and tribal prosecutor.
Some topics may require study
and research so wc would appre
ciate your patience and conside
ration. Questions needing immediate
answers may be directed to the
prosecutor's office at extension
300 or 301.
In my final newsletter to you as
the junior high school principal, 1
would like to thank you for your
very visible support of our school,
teachers, and programs. Whenever
we have needed your help, or
insights, you have been there. If
you have had concerns, or ques
tions, you have let us know about
them (phone calls, notes letters, or
personal visits). Having come from
"the big city" I have really found
your candor and direct approach
to be refreshing.
These past four years have been
the best of my seventeen years in
education, and I am grateful for
them. I have learned a great deal
working with parents from Warm
Springs, Madras, Metolius, Ante
lope Ash wood, and areas in between.
I have had some successes, and I
have made my share of mistakes,
each experience, though, has pro
vided me with a chance to grow
and become a little bit better prin
cipal and person
Once again, thank you for your
interest and involvement. I'm look
ing forward to working with you at
the high school.
Reminder to parents

library materials, or textbooks, or
paid any fines owed to our school,
we will be withholding their final
report cards. Please check with
