MN Sheriffs' Associaion scholarship program stands ready to offer financial assistance in the form of these scholar- ships, as funds will allow. The scholarship com- mittee, in making its selection of awards, intends to achieve repre- sentation from all geo- graphical areas of the state. Applications will be received until November 1 of each year, with scholar- ships being awarded by December 31 of the same year. Application forms and a statement of proce- dures are available at the Redwood County Sheriffs Office. Scholarships are only available to students currently enrolled in one of the following three cat- egories: 1. Mandated POST skills program 2. In their 2nd year of a two-year law enforcement program 3. In their 3rd or 4th year of a four-year college criminal justice dourse:! Sheriff Randy Hanson of Redwood County recently announced the commencement of the Minnesota Sheriffs' Association scholarship program for 2009. Sheriff Hanson proudly announced that the MSA has established a scholar- ship fund totaling $9,000 for the awarding of up to fifteen (15) $600 scholar- ships for this year. This is possible due to the coordi- nated efforts of the 87 sheriffs of the State of Minnesota. The members of the Minnesota Sheriffs' Association give special recognition to the finan- cial needs of the students attending the mandated peace officers skills course or two or four year law enforcement degree schools. The policy adopt- ed by the MSA indicated it was their feeling that enforcement of the law in a democratic society is a who hope to harvest an antlerless deer this fall will want to review 2009 regulations prior to Thursday, September 10, the deadline to apply for an antlerless permit. That's because over- the-counter antlerless permits have been cut back significantly this hunting season, especial- ly in portions of northern and southwestern Minnesota. This means many hunters who typi- cally have not had to apply for an antlerless permit will need to do so this hunting season. "Nearly half of Minnesota's 127 deer permit areas are desig- nated as qottery' this year," said Lou Cornicelli, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) big game specialist. "We encourage all deer hunters, no matter if they hunt with a firearm, bow or muzzleloader, to determine the status of their hunting area now so that it doesn't come as a surprise to them after the September 1D permit application deadline." The other significant change is that muzzle- loader hunters must apply for an either-sex permit if they want to harvest an antlerless deer in a lottery area. Unlike pre- vious years, there is no exemption for a person who only hunts the muz- zleloader season. Hunters who choose to hunt in a lottery area Suicide Prevention Week is September 6-12 Minnesota health offi- cials urge Minnesotans to learn more about prevent- ing suicide during nation- al Suicide Prevention Week, September 6-12. The extent of suicide in Minnesota is significant: • 571 people died by suicide in Minnesota in 2007, representing 11 deaths out of every 100,000. • Suicide occurs in all age groups. In 2007, per- sons aged 50-64 years had the highest suicide rate of aH age groups, at 16, one deaths per 100,000 peo- ple. • The number of Minnesotans who die by suicide each year is near- ly five times higher than the number of homicide victims. "Suicide results in the tragic loss of life as well as agonizing grief, fear and confusion in families and communities," said Min-ne s o t a Commissioner of Health Dr. Sanne Magnan. "There are simple steps Minnesotans can take to be aware of the warning signs of suicide and to help prevent it. Know the warning signs. People are encour- aged to pay attention to signs that might indicate someone is considering or planning to end their life.

Talk about it. If you are concerned about someone, ask that person whether they have thought about suicide. Research indicates that asking the following kinds of questions does not cause a person to start thinking about suicide. • Do you ever wish you could go to sleep and never wake up? • When you feel sad, have you ever had thoughts of harming or killing yourself?. • Are you thinking about: killing yourself?. Have you thought about how you would do it? You may need to ask the questions more than once, and in different ways; In response,, do your best to If someone is in imme- diate crisis, call 911 or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1- 800-273-TALK (800-273- 8255).
