Millions saw me overdose after a photo taken of me by a police officer went viral. None of those people have seemed to have time to reach out and check on me, so here is an update: Today I celebrated three years clean and my son gets to have his mommy back. How about you make THAT go viral! #TheAddictsDiary

A young woman was drugged and raped at a Baylor University frat party by the frat's president, Jacob Anderson. At first, Anderson was charged with the victim's rape, but the charge has since been taken down to unlawful restraint - the perpetrator will evade jail time and only be sentenced to counseling. Sign the petition to demand that this rapist serves time for his crimes and is charged with sexual assault!

One of the unfortunate drawbacks to our digital age is that criminals have found ways to take advantage of these platforms and technologies to part innocent victims from their money. Due to the way in which the transactions are conducted, it makes it nearly impossible for law enforcement to successfully pursue the matter after the harm has been caused. Our best tool is education and trying to stop the thefts before they occur.

One of the most common current crimes we see involves the criminal asking the victim to purchase a gift card or pre-loaded credit cards at a local retailer. At times the request may appear to come from a supervisor or co-worker who is “to busy” at the time to purchase them and wants the victim to do so. At other times is tied to some sort of bill payment threat to stop services, a threat that a government agency will take action against you if you fail to do this, or a promise to unlock some sort of “winnings” if only you send money.

The criminal will ask the victim to send them the numbers off the card either via email or over the phone. Once this occurs the money has now transferred to the criminal and it is nearly impossible to trace or recover the funds. We want to remind the public that no reputable organization or agency will ever ask for payment via gift cards or pre-loaded credit cards. Jails and Police Departments will not accept them for bail, utility companies do not want Amazon or EBay gift card numbers for payment and your co-worker can find time to buy their own cards for their child’s birthday party. Do not trust any email or phone call in which anyone is asking you to purchase these cards and transfer the numbers to them. Here is additional information specific to how to spot a scam.https://www.ag.state.mn.us/Brochures/pubHowtoSpotaScam.pdf

In addition to that flier, the Minnesota Attorney General’s website has other good material on “scams and schemes” along with other helpful topics that can be viewed online. https://www.ag.state.mn.us/Office/Publications.asp

Again, because it is so important to know, if anyone is contacting you and asking for you to pay them via pre-loaded gift or credit card it is going to be a scam. Do not mail these cards to someone you do not know and never give anyone the card numbers over the phone or via email.

The Recovery programs have a saying , K.I.S.S. - Keep It Simple , Stupid ... Some people just can't keep it SIMPLE!

I don’t know who wrote this but SOMEONE FINALLY put into words what I’ve been thinking and I couldn't agree more!

I’m sick of Covid-19.

I’m sick of black vs. white.

I’m sick of Democrats vs. Republicans.

I’m REALLY sick of the media.

I’m sick of the language being used and plastered all over the media...

I’m sick of no one being allowed to think what they want & feel what they do without offending someone.

I am sick of the people who are out there jumping on the bandwagon to protest just to cause mass confusion and more hatred and to riot, loot, and destroy...

I am sick of blaming the world for the sins of a few.

We’re one race—the human race.

You want to support Trump? You do it! It’s your choice.

You want to support Biden? Fine... also your choice!

You want to believe in God? Okay, believe in God.

You want to believe in magical creatures that fly around & sprinkle fairy dust to make life better? Awesome... you do it!!

BUT how about being mature enough to be able to deal with the fact that everyone doesn’t have the same exact mind-set as you. Having our own minds is what makes us all individuals and beautiful. If you can’t handle that fact....I’m sorry!! I don’t have to agree with everything you believe in AND you don’t have to agree with me. We’re all entitled to our own opinions.

So be a decent human being. Love all, harm none (or as few as you can).

Copy and paste if you want, or don't copy and paste :)

Austin Police Department - Minnesota

Jeanne Steinbrink is retiring from the Austin Police Department tomorrow. She started with the City of Austin at the Austin Library on April 10th, 1984. On December 7, 2009 she became the Administrative Assistant for the Austin Police Department. She was an incredible asset to our entire Department. Retired Chief Brian Krueger, Captain Todd Clennon, and I were truly blessed to have had her as our administrative assistant all these years. The rest of her co-workers with the Police and Sheriff’s Office, along with our retirees who overlapped with Jeanne’s tenure, all feel the same way.

We all wish Jeanne the best as she heads toward new adventures in her life.

Election season is upon us and yard signs that support political candidates or causes are beginning to appear. We would ask folks to be respectful of those signs and please don’t remove, deface, or destroy them. Our democracy is not strengthened when we attempt to silence or suppress the political expression of others.

We do understand, especially at the national level, there are deep divides at times between the parties. We should not use those divisions as a reason to damage or take the property of others. Our local and state candidates are often our friends and neighbors who are pursuing these roles out of a sense of civic duty. They are usually funding their own signage. We are richer as a community the more people we have running for office. We also are better when we have more people who are actively following, listening, and participating in the process. Placing a sign is often a part of that.

If you are a candidate we would ask that you seek permission from property owners to place signage. We would also ask that any rules as they pertain to having signs in public right of ways be followed. The Minnesota Secretary of State site has information on those issues. City code covers the issue under chapter 4.50.

General Guidelines on the Enforcement of EO 20-81 (Minnesota mandated mask wear)

The Austin PD has been fielding several questions regarding the enforcement of mandated mask wear. The position of the Austin Police Dept. at this time is to educate, encourage, document and forward information on to other agencies for it to be reviewed. No individual will be arrested solely for failing to wear a face mask.

A violation of this Executive Order is a petty misdemeanor and may carry a fine of up to $100. Children under the age of 14 are exempt from the order, as are students over age 14 when on school grounds. Children under the age of two years old must not wear face coverings. There are also exemptions for those that cannot wear a face covering due to medical or mental health conditions.

We are NOT encouraging citizens to contact Law Enforcement to report violations of the Executive Order. We do encourage all citizens to follow the order and expect that other agencies and outlets will engage in the education of the order and stress the importance of compliance.

Citizens must comply with this Executive Order when entering businesses or other buildings. Failure to comply or leave the location after being told to do so may result in criminal violations, including trespass.

The overall goal of the Executive Order is to advise Minnesotans that wearing a face covering will protect them, their families, their friends and others along with the expectation that Minnesotans will voluntarily comply.

Yes, it is so important to have places that help. Most important people who help and not judge! My daughter got into drugs and we had to fight hard to help her. She was young (almost 16 years old). In Rochester, at this time where not much help for this age. Now she is off drugs for a long time she is 34. She still lives with us and doing good.
Stumbled on your page. You are doing a good thing!
