In Tucson, a white middle-class teenager, dressed in gang colors died, a victim of a drive-by shooting, as he stood with Black and Hispanic members of the Bloods gang. At Antelope Valley High School in Lancaster, Ca., about 200 students threw stones at a policeman who had been called to help enforce a ban on gang outfits on campus. Around the country, a growing number of well-to-do youths have begun flirting with gangs in ways that can be as innocent as a fashion statement, or as deadly as hard core drugs dealing and violence. The phenomenon is emerging in a variety of forms. Some middle class and affluent white youths are joining established Black or His- panic gangs, others are forming what are sometimes called copycat, mutant or yuppie gangs. This gang development by afflu- ent and middle-class youth seems to defy the usual social and economic explanations for the growth of gangs in inner-cities. Police experts and social workers offer an array of reagsons: a mis- guided sense of romance of gangs, pursuit of the easy money of drugs, self-defense against the spread of established hard core gangs and they note that well-to-do families can be as empty and loveless as bro- ken families of the inner-city, leav- ing young people searching for a sense of group identify. The Boys & Girls Club is con- cerned about these issues and how the Club can effectively deal with the problem. Club staff members are preparing to work with gang mem- bers who appear volatile and dis- ruptive. What are we doing now? The Club provides special pro- grams for teens and "at risk" mem- bers to give them a sense of belong- ing, a sense of identity; positive groups and acceptable activities to be involved in. The Club works with the Clover- BOYS & GIRLS CLUB: A place to go - a way to grow! By Susie Leach dale Police Dept. and County juve- nile justice system in diversion programs. Youthful offenders are referred to the Club. These youth referrals are "main-streamed" into Club programs that provide youth with opportunities that foster a sense of usefulness and competence. During 1990, 20 juvenile offend- ers were referred to the Club with community service hours to com- plete. All of these young people completed their time in a satisfactory manner. All but 3 of these youth have joined the Boys and Girls Club and are involved in on-going activities. Three of these young people vol- unteer daily in program areas,-and one is a paid junior staff position. Although these programs aren't called Gang Prevention Programs, they provide a positive alternative to gang involvement by youth. Our Club programs give youth a sense of belonging, a sense of identity. The Boys & Girls Club environ- ment strikes at the root of juvenile delinquency, providing an opportu- nity for young people to improve their sense of self-esteem. We are planning to send staff from the Club to a Boys & Girls Club of America Youth Gang Prevention WOrkshop. The Workshop will be held on Jan 30-31 and Feb 1, 1991 in Richardson, TX. The first 2 days of training will cover programs, techniques and strategies for Clubs to utilize in an attempt to prevent at-risk youth, ages 7-11, from becoming involved in gangs. The 3rd day will be de- voted to the discussion of Club intervention stretegies for youth already involved in gangs. This training was designed spe- cifically for Boys & Girls Club program staff. The Workshop'is funded in part by the Office of Juvenile Delinquency Prevention. The cost of sending our staff to this 3-day Workshop is approxi- mately $900. If you would like to make a contribution to help defray this cost, please contact the Club at 894-5063. O/fly thru individual donations can the Club continue to build a solid future for the youth of Clo- verdale. Tony Villa used one of the City's vehicles to help uproot some of the more stubborn brush. Building the new planter box around the main hangar building at the Airport are Eric Natenstadt, Jim Norton and Christopher Nelson. 1989 AAFP A number of Cloverdale High School students are taking advan- tage of a newly offered Landscape Maintenance class this year. Under the direction of their advi- sor, Greg Lands, they hve done some work at Jefferson School, and are currently in the middle of a big iproject at the Cloverdale Airport. When they are done, all of the '00Ever Wish You Could Find Just One Doctor for The Entire Fanu0000' 11 used l to think we needed separate specialists to ,IL get the best medical care. My husband had an internist; I had a gynecologist; our baby and the two older kids had a pediatrician. Then we found one specialist, a Family Physician, who is qualified to care for the whole family. (Cheste; our dog, is the only exception.)" Whaisa ramyehysichn: A Family Physician is a medical doctor who is trained in the specialty of Family Practice. Like other specialists, Family Physicians complete an extensive three-year resicy program in their specialty after graduating from medical school Instead of specializ in only one medical area, Family Physicians are trained in all major medical areas - from pediatrics to internal medicine to gynecology, including .pre.natal and baby care. Of course, no doctor can slrcial- tze m e,thing. In actual practice, Family Physicians will refer patients to other specialists in 10 to 15 of the cases, But isn't it nice to know that your Family Physi- cian can help you with all of your medical needs? Famay Phys can se yo n,. Having a Family Physician care for most of a family's health needs usually costs less than paying for separate specialist Plus, the Family Physicians'emphasis on preventive health care can save you money, too. Family Practice is one of the few specialties that requires its Board Certified members to pass a receaification exam every six year So, you know you're getting up-to-date medical knowledge! More than 35000 Family Physk-'ians care for millions of Americans from newborns to grandparents. Chances are there a Famiiy Physician in ur neighborhood.
