SIDNEY HERALD In our areo WEDNESDAY, DEC. 16, 2009 Richland County will celebrate diversily with film featuring county residents This January, the Ameri- corps VISTAs in Richland County will screen a film based on Martin Luther King Jr.'s"I Have a Dream Speech." The film will be Dr. King's words in Richland County community members' voic- es. For months now the VIS- TAs have been shooting and editing footage of people like Commissioner Loren Young and Richland County Ambu- lance Service director Josh King reading passages from Dr. King's historical speech. There are more than 25 community members who have read for the project and even Gov. Schweitzer, Sen. Tester and Pep. Rehberg have added their voices to the movie. When the film is fmished, there will be a wide array of contributors speak- ing in a variety of different languages all with the same goal in mind: to promote pride in Richland County's diversity, There are many different types of people in Richland County ranging from Irish to Mexican and from Swedish to Tunisian. The "I Have a Dream" speech was selected because it inspired a nation of people to begin to em- brace each others' differ- ences. By highlighting and celebrating the different members of our community, the movie will sho how the various races, colors and creeds around Richland County come together to make the community unique. Each person in Richland County has his or her own history and background that should be celebrated and shared, and this ffflm should inspire further thought and pride in local diversity, Once the film is completed, the VISTAs will show the piece in schools around the entire county and discuss with stu- dents what it means for them to have a dream. In each class, students will have the opportunity to dis- cuss their own heritage, their dreams for the future and add to a county-wide art project centered on the theme, "I Have a Dream." The Martin Luther King Day project will culminate in a Diversity Fair on Jan. 18, where there will be multi- cultural food, a screening of the film and a display of the artwork created by students in kindergarten through t high school. If you have any questions or would like to be a part of this project feel free to con- tact Becky Hayes at for more information.

Although DPHHS contin- ues to emphasize the impor- tance of vaccinating priority groups in Montana, public health officials believe the vaccine supply is now suffi- cient enough to support local and tribal health depart- ments that want to broaden their vaccination campaigns to include every Montanan. Due to early limited vac- cine supplies, priority groups recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) were given the first opportunities to get the vac- cine due to their high risk of being infected or having seri- ous complications if they were infected by the 2009 HINI virus. "The priority groups are still important," DPHHS di- rector Anna Whiting Sorrell said. '~nd we continue to en- courage those who are at risk to come in for their vac- cine." People most at risk for complications are individu- als who are pregnant or have chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, asth- ma or other conditions that reduce immunity to influen- za. Other groups that are at higher risk of infection or likely to spread influenza viruses to vulnerable popula- tions are: health care work- ers, all children and adults aged six months to 24 years and caregivers of children 6 months and younger. Whiting Sorrell continued by urging individuals who live with or care for at-risk family members to bring them along when getting their own vaccination. "We expect to have enough vaccine for every Montanan who wants one," Whiting Sorrell said. "Our goal is to make sure every tribal and local health department has enough vaccine and supplies to fight the H1N1 virus." l- Jiffy & Strike Master Ice Augers Ice Fishing Sleds Sha Ice Shelters See our great selection of Redwing Boots.
