Coffee with our own Police Chief Burks
Please join us for our second Coffee with Chief Burks on Tuesday July 17th at 10am at the Hudson Senior Center. Please call the center to sign up for this. We would like to thank Chief Burks for coming to our center in May and informing us of a new innovative program called Restorative Justice. Restorative Justice offers a personal, community-based alternative to the often impersonal effects of crime and its punishment. According to an article in PeaceBuilder Magazine of the Center for Justice and Peacebuilding, “Restorative Justice is recognized as a model in the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention
Model Programs Guide. A 2007 University of Wisconsin study found that Barron County’s restorative justice program [in northwestern Wisconsin] led to significant declines in youth violence, arrests, crime, and recidivism. Five years after the program began, violent juvenile offenses decreased almost 49 percent. Overall juvenile arrest rates decreased almost 45 percent. Significantly, the study further found that collaboration of law enforcement officials with the community and schools was a decisive factor in reducing youth violence”. Chief Burks and his department is now offering this innovative program in Hudson on a case by case basis that meets certain criteria. Additionally Chief Burks shared a short video called “Finding Courage” which depicted Restorative Justice in a possible real life scenario.
Life’s Transitions… June 7th and June 21st at 10AM
May was laden with a full spectrum of transitional moments. Remembrance emerged as the overwhelming theme of the month as we celebrated the one-year anniversary of our group. Looking back, we fondly see where we have been and just how far we have traveled. We applaud all who participated, offered their wisdom, helped us problem solve issues or simply made us laugh over the past twelve months. We invite you to drop in, socialize and share your wisdom among friends. The group meets on the first and third Thursday of each month at 10AM in the library.
Transitions Team Tips: The recommended transitional moments on film this month is an award winning animated feature film called COCO released by Disney/Pixar in 2018. It is the story of young Miguel who must decide whether to take a job as a shoemaker or to follow his passion and become a musician. Traveling through the magical land of his ancestors, he learns the truth about family issues, the power of love and the importance of being remembered. [Golden Globe: Best Motion Picture - Animated & Nominated for Best Original Song for a Motion Picture - Remember Me. Academy Awards: Best Animated Feature Film & Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures (Original Song).
